Response: Thank you for the great rating. I love that little dog stamp; idea came to me one night while I was trying to sleep bathe food papers came from a book of papers I found on sale at Michael’s. Take care
Comment: What a lovely little card! Blue jays are one of my absolute favorite birds--I feed them peanuts every day so this card was a lovely reminder of my dear jays. Thanks, too, for the lovely extras! LOVE the kitty card and plants are my superpower, too ;+) What a lovely swap--thank you!

Comment: Thank you for the adorable flip tag and extras:-)
Have a great day and happy swapping! I received your card as well:-). Yes, I agree, having to stay home all the time is a bummer. Minneapolis opens up June 15th. Looking forward to getting out:-)
(sorry for the delayed rating). Please see my profile page if you are in need of an explanation.
Comment: Thank you for the cards and your nice note. New Bern sounds like a lovely place to live. I usually visit a friend in the NC Blue Ridge mountains every summer, but this year's trip will likely be cancelled due the pandemic. It's already very hot here so I'll miss the cool mountain escape.
Comment: This is a wonderful tag-both sides are really nicely made. Love the colors and themes you used for the front and back. Thanks also for the extra goodies-nice of you to share. I have been busy crafting with what I have-discovering new things I have forgotten I had and just organizing. I think I spend more time organizing than the actual crafting but then when I do I can actually find things. Amazing how that works. I am getting stir crazy as I am used to taking classes and going to monthly weekend retreats at my local scrapbooking store-miss my crafting buddies. But thank goodness for swap-bot-still have my crafting friends here and welcome the mail everyday. Thanks again and take care-stay safe!
Comment: Hi Melanie, Thanks very much for the cute mini PL. So fun! I love the traditional holiday colors. Cute washi, too. Don't have any of those. I enjoyed reading your newsy letter. Yes! We've had an early winter here, snow before Halloween!
Comment: Thank you SO much for the beautiful thanksgiving tag! And all the extra goodies! I will for sure use the little sew-on snaps! They will be perfect for The closures on a fabric envelope swap I’m in! Thank you!

Comment: Thanks for the ATC & sweet postcard. I've been in Danville since 1977 when hubs #1 & I got married. It's home. We're also waiting for Hurricane Florence to arrive. Hope she leaves us all safe!
Comment: I love the ATC, the card and all the extras were perfect for me. Your nite to me was so wonderful, I can’t beli how much we have in common, I’m sure if we lived close by we’d be friends. Thank you.
Response: Thank you I’m so glad you liked everything. Maybe we can do a swap sometime. Do you ever do pocket letters.
Comment: This was a great swap, thank you so much for a great pocket. I loved the mermaid paper so cute!
Response: I’m glad you liked it I’d never done anything with mermaids before enjoyed it. I found those papers at Hobby Lobby. They just opened a store here and my daughter and I are thrilled not to have to go out of town to shop in a Hobby Lobby. Thank you for the great rating !
Comment: Melanie, you are the first person I have swapped with that has lived closed by. We are getting ready to head to Massachusetts for 2 weeks to take in the fall foliage and to see our children and grands. I really miss the New England Falls. Have you ever been up there in the Fall? Thank you for the lighthouse postcard. We have only gone to Cape Lookout. Shirley
Response: I've had a swap partner from Charlotte and Raleigh. I have not been in New England in the fall but have seen pictures that are beautiful. Our Blue Ridge Mountains are gorgeous in the fall. I hope you have a great time family. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful Atlanta postcard. We usually go to Atlanta a couple of times a year to do some shopping. There is an incredible art supply store there, Sam Flax, and we always hit IKEA, and my hubby hits up Cabela. There's so much to do there, we really enjoyed Olympic park last fall!
Comment: Thank you so much for the sweet Slips of Inspiration! The one that struck me as the most meaningful to my heart is "Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted." I've learned to relax into time off of work. Plus I'll be retiring in three months. It's good practice to live by this quote:) I thank you for all of the little extras but the quotes are going into my quote jar! It sits on my nightstand. I wish you joy in Swapping and always in your retirement.
Response: I'm so glad you liked your quotes and goodies. I especially like the quote about time my husband sees crafting as a waste but t strongly disagree. It is relaxing and fun for me. I forget all the worries during the time I spend doing these things with my daughter. I wish you the best with your retirement. It's an adjustment but it's wonderful Thank you for the great rating. ðŸŒ»

Response: Thank you for the great rating and kind words. I'm so glad you liked your ATC. I had a lot of fun making it. I 'be had a good time every time I have been to New York City and wanted the card to show that and to make you want to visit there if you haven't. I liked that movie too. Have you seen it
Comment: Wow! What great stuff you sent. Thank you for your generosity. I love it all. Don't forget to write the swap name somewhere on the mail. Luckily I am not in too many swaps so was able to figure out who to rate.
