Comment: Hello DixieDiane! WOW - what an amazing package!! I can't believe all the cuts you sent me. I especially love the swans and the angels too. And thank you for all the pretty napkins. You're such a thoughtful and generous swapper ❤️🐿️❤️
Response: You are very welcome. Once i get rolling them out, sometimes its hard to stop. Thank you HUGS
Comment: Thank you for the cute card. Loved the story about your cat. I am so glad that my cat doesn't get on the counter because the only way I could keep her out of the kitchen is to shut her in My bedroom. That is a drawback of living in a mobile home with an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining and living room area.
Comment: Thank you for the swap I am waiting for December to open these, It is going to be so hard to wait LOL
12/24 I opened your card today. I know what you mean about cats and Christmas Trees. My cat used to go under the tree and push out all the gifts so he could fit to sleep under the tree. Did I mention that he was a 27 pound Maine Coon cat. LOL
Comment: Greetings neighbor,
Thank you for your card, note and funny “stock” notepaper. They are a keeper in my junk journal. Yes the weather is a hoot lately, I lived in upstate NY & MN winters the weather is all relative to me. One of the top 5 things men and women get in debates over has got to be the temperature. My husband keeps the house so warm I can’t stand it. I have small fans in almost every room for me.😆
Response: I believe the stock papers are vintage from my sister in OR. I thought they were cute. She used to go to alot of estate sales. Thank you for rating and heart. Happy holidays
Comment: Thank you for the card! I am going to save it for Christmas 🎄 The silly post office put white stickers all over the envelope and I had to peal them off to figure out who sent the card lol I think they sent it through the sorter upside down. It was postmarked Ict 29 and I just got it today. Hahaha!!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card and your note and gift tags! Cute sticker bomb envie! 😁 I'm with ya on the cooking...still love to cook but I just cannot do as much as I use to. My body isn't having it. Lol Your Sister lives so close by. My friend lives over there too. I wonder if she attended any of the Craft Warehouse events? I may know her! Stay safe happy and healthy. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Wow, Thank you Diane for the so so cute Chihuahua Christmas card! He/she kind of looks like my Chihuahua Jasper. He's my baby & only a yr. old as of Sept. 5th.

I own the movie. Thank you again! Love what you sent! Happy Holidays!

Comment: This was amazing!!!! You totally went up and beyond what you needed to send. I LOVED the envies that opened on the top, the cute cheetah print envelope, LOVED the fold and mails, I just loved everything! You are SO sweet! I wish I could give you a hundred hearts.
Response: I am SO pleased you liked your envie of paper stuff-Thanks for the rating and the Heart(s)...Have a Safe, Healthy and Happy Easter :)
Comment: Thank you for the pretty ATC and nice card. I so enjoyed reading about your Easter childhood memories. Your Nana probably didn't have any of her recipes written down. Maybe you can find something similar online?
Response: Your welcome, Dear Friend. TKS for the rating and heart :)
Comment: I'm so sorry I haven't been able to rate this until now, I've had browser issues that apparently has prevented me from rating multiple partners, so several e-mail swaps have gone unrated =(
Thanks for the mail!
Response: Not a problem...hope things are better now for you....TKS for the rating and the heart :)
Comment: Di...what a nice card, poem and adorable stickers...wouldn't it be fun to be snowed in together??!!!! I'll bring the popcorn for the movie marathon :) Of course it was amusing to see all that snow fun inside one of your great HM envies with a "SPRING" scene!!! Thanks for the great swap...hope your week is going well :)..oxoxox Charlene
Response: Yes, It would be such a treat to be snowed in together and having a movie marathon-WHAT FUN it would be!!!!! TKS for the rating and Heart :)
Comment: Oh my gosh, Diane, I was soooo blown over by your envie!! My kids loved it, too! And the GITD stickers literally made me squeal :D Thanks so very much! What a lovely mailbox treat for Halloween!
Response: TKS-glad you liked it and the kids enjoyed it. I've never done the decor envie swap before. I've had those GITD stickers and wondered who to share with-Glad you liked them too :) Your very welcome :)
Comment: Hi! Thanks for sharing - I very much agree about the pregnancies and/or not having safe sex - I discuss this with my sons all the time! Not that having a baby out of wedlock is a terrible thing, but having a baby periord, changes your life forever! Good for you on the coupons and letting folks have both barrels! Saving money when you can is a good thing, so... Hope things get better with some of your family issues! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks for the heart :) I am bringing up one of my grandsons and we discuss issues like teen pregnancies and safe sex all the time-thank God he isn't dating yet and I know he will do the right thing and use something when the time comes
Comment: Too bad this swap was a bust. Hope it doesn't turn you off to email swaps all together. I'm hosting one myself called "30 Drinking Questions Email Swap" its fun and laid back, please join if this horrible host hasn't ruined you for all email swaps. Happy Swapping!
Response: I have joined even tho I don't drink anymore...it hasn't turned me off to email swaps at all-this mystery swap was awful and don't see it as a joke THANKS for the heart
Comment: It was so much fun reading your list. I also have fond memories of time spent at my grandmas. And, we share many other memories even with the difference in our ages. I do wish I lived close enough for a metal jacks match! Thank you for the memories. That is also the title of one of my Etsy treasuries and jacks are included.
Response: Thanks for the heart :) I'd sure play jacks with ya HUGGGSSSSS
Comment: Thank-you for resending!:) I enjoyed reading your answers!
Response: Why would you rate me #1 when I sent this swap to you the first day it was posted to send. This was truly sent and I DO send all my swaps ON TIME-this is not a fair rating-you should of sent me a message first saying you didn't receive it?
THANKS FOR RE-RATING and for the HEART-HAPPY NEW YEAR
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful email. I am so happy that things are working out for you and your family. Times are hard on everyone and it is when everyone pulls together to make someones day a little brighter that are truly the special moments in life. I do understand your thoughts and I find the email something that I can relate to. Thanks so much for your caring thoughts because it has brightened my day. May you have a blessed holiday and happiness throughout the the year.
Response: Thanks SO much-I enjoyed yours as well VERY MUCH. Same Blessing and happiness to you as well, Denise :)
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your answers. I've heard a lot about that show: Spartacus. I actually just put it on my list on Netflix a few days ago, so that I can check it out for myself. I also apologize for taking several days to rate. My computer has been giving me some major problems lately.
Comment: Dear Diane,
Wow...thank you so much for sending SO many coupons from my wish list! They will be put to good use.
Response: Glad you can use them...just leave me a message anytime you are looking for certain cpns...I might have them :)
thanks for the heart
forgot to ask if you will be able to use the free one I sent?
Comment: Thanks for sharings :))) I know what you mean about breaking up with someone because of distance.. I did the same last year (though distance in my case was an ocean apart!) and I don't really see it as something stupid... maybe I will think it is, someday :))
Comment: Hi Diane!
