Comment: Thank you!! These are super cute. I totally understand moving between projects that are so very different. I tell myself it helps me be mentally flexible...let's hope that's true. ha! Hope to swap again.
Comment: Thank you for a lovely letter! It is amazing to think what you are grateful for once you are "forced" to sit back and think. This swap certainly makes you realize you are grateful for little things that don't seem like much in the moment. Stay safe!
Tverne05 rated for August 2021 Journal Swap on Sep 17, 2021
Comment: OMG! I canโ€™t wait to read the entire journal that you sent to me. I flipped through just to see your style of journaling and I just love how you put it together. It actually gave another idea of another way to use a paper bag to make the base for the journal. Iโ€™ve used them before but not the way you did. So, Iโ€™ll be sitting down this weekend reading your journal. Thanks a bunch! Take care!
