Comment: These are fabulous! I especially love the butterfly die cut one. Thank you for the extras. I will definitely be using those. I will also be praying for you, Diane. May the Lord strengthen you and you feel His presence with you throughout the entire journey of recovery. And I can't recall if I ever thanked you for the "trial" tea bags you sent me. I liked those too. Kathy
Response: You are so nice. Thank you for the encouragement. I ask God for me to have courage to go through all of it. Hope to enjoy more swaps.
Comment: Hey Diane…cute envelopes. The one with the little pink bird is adorable! I don’t think I will put it in the mail as you are right…the little birdie might not make it in transit…lol. Happy holiday!
Thank you! Beautiful Journal card. Some gems fell off, but that's an easy fix. 😀
I like easy swaps. These days, with most of my stuff in boxes waiting to get out of this house, I am limited on supplies and easy, quick, simple is best! Keep hosting those swaps! 🙂
Response: Sorry they came loose. Are you still in Florida? I sure miss Tennessee right now this season
Comment: It’s been a fun series! Great design on the xylophone atc… loved the yak and his background …nice choice! Zebra looked at home on the grassy field… love zebras by the way! Thanks for a great swap and I am. Loving that little hibiscus envelope!
Response: Thank you for such a nice note and rating.
Comment: Hi, Thank you for sending. Sadly, your envelope was in with mail that was stolen. I got the open envelope and your note, but the ATC was lost (but that's not your fault), so I never got to see what you made :(
Response: How awful for that to
Happen to you. I can’t remember if it was the flower stamp or Abe Lincoln. Thanks for rating though
Comment: Great tag-Iiked the use of it starting out as an ATC! The napkin is really pretty and has lots of possibilities! Loved the cute you little envelope you put the tag in-Dick and Jane book! Thanks for sharing! Cute self portrait on envie too!
Response: What a nice note on this rating. Thank you
Comment: Hi! Thanks for all the cool stuff! FYI the birthday card you sent doesn't fit in the envelope with it. So I guess that makes two items - a blank envelope and a card that I will find or make an envelope for! Thanks again! Take care!
Response: Sorry about envelope. I think I sent more than required so thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Diane! I loved everything about your swap! The envie right on down to the adorable Cats. They look like my cats Henry and Glenn! Thank you, so much, for the effort and thought put into this swap!
Response: Thank you for such a nice comment snd a ♥️
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful bird card..it has been a while since we swapped...hope you are staying healthy and safe...Merry Chrstmas!! And let's hope your tuck in speaks truth..."the best is yet to come"...blessings in the New Year!.....Charlene
Response: I’ll be in prayer a lot in the New Year for sure. Happy Christmas Charlene.
Comment: My late husband's ancestor was Heindrich Pannebakker, who was William Penn's surveyor. His descendants spell the name 13 different ways! The original name meant tile maker (it's Dutch). It is an interesting name! (My maiden name was Smith... probably the most common name on earth...lol)
Comment: Hi Diane! You had me giggling as to why you joined the swap - what a good friend you are! I love your card- it is so pretty! I take my hat off to you with moving twice in one year - yikes! We have lived in our current house over 20 years so if we ever move, well it will take a few dumpsters I am sure! LOL! Thanks for the enjoyable Happy Mail and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: As usual, such a nice response to my swap from you that I sent. Sweet thank you
Comment: Gorgeous envelope patterns! You somehow aligned them all to my sense of style, as well! :) Where do you buy your double-sided envelope tape? I’ve been searching for it online recently and can’t seem to find a good one.
Response: Awhile ago on internet. Google the name on tape.
Thanks for reply and rating
Comment: Thank you for the envies, I especially enjoyed the one with the teal paint! 7.8.19: yes, I did get the extras inside each envie, I noticed them yesterday when I was going through your swap again! Thank you!
Response: Thanks for heart. I think I put a little something in each. Hope u got that.?
Comment: Thanks for the gloves ~ I use lots of those in the winter here. I can use the black ones for a Halloween costume when I hand out candy. It won't take much to make me look like the "wicked witch" - ha ha!........That candy wrapper bag is sure cute!
Comment: Thanks Diane!! Into my tote it goes...I like the Merry Christmas choo choo train tape you used :) I'm so anticipating all the fun this Christmas will be when I open and think of all my FB friends who are making it special. This is my first year to participate in these wrapped swaps! Hope you have peaceful holidays full of JOY!!... Charlene
Response: You will love it. Thanks for the heart too
Comment: Thank you for such a great swap!! I love the tree envie and tag you made - you're very talented! I also LOVE the pcs you sent me. Such a great variety - it was very thoughtful of you. You made my day. :-)
Response: Glad you enjoyed the happy mail and thanks for the heart
Comment: Thank you Diane. This time the contents arrived. Earrings and a heart with an angel. Perfect for this swap. I also love the bracelet you sent. Taking it along on my vacation which I leave for today. Have a great day!
Comment: This such a fun new idea for alternate ATC's. I was just discussing this penny theory with someone the other day when I found a penny on the floor of a thrift store. I was going to put it in their penny dish but then decided to look at the date and it was 1952-the year I was born. So I kept that penny! Thanks for the blinged up tag you used to send your note-great idea! Thanks for sharing!
Response: Going to love doing coins.
Thank you for nice message
Comment: Just checking to see whether I rated all the swaps I received. I found this one was not rated. I think I have been to New Bern but did not know the connection to Pepsi. I love the cloud picture- one of my favorite subjects.
Sorry for this extremely late rating.
Response: It happens sometime. Thanks for the heart too
Comment: Perfect timing on the robins ATC, I just had a momma bird raise a nest full right outside my dining room window! This never happened before and it was amazing. Thank you for all of your thoughtful work. <3
Comment: Hi Diane! I am really enjoying these photo swaps! Thanks so much for hosting them - it is great to see what others share with me and I love photos, so this is a perfect swap for me! Hugs, Happy Snapping and Swapping! ;)
Comment: Big box, little treasures. The shells will go on the bookshelves with my other, less artistic shells. The Bolivian card is delightful. The flag pin goes to Goodwill -- I do not pledge allegience or wear patriotic things as long as the country is in the hands of an egomaniac idiot.
Response: Now now June don’t be political. Goodwill will appreciate it. You did get sunglasses too?
Comment: This was fun ! If a work of art has good composition it should look good from any direction and the bridge is a good example... good shot! That lemon pie looks so very good! My favorite pie ... and the old truck is wonderful ... thank you for a great set of photos.., love the kittens washi and that beautiful paper... thanks so much
Comment: Love your photos! The bird one is so amazing! I love the composition and colors! That spider looks scary, but his colors are lovely! And the water almost looks frozen. Thank you for a lovely set of photos, and for the pretty postcard!
Response: Glad you liked and thanks for joining in
Comment: Wonderful bundle of goodies for me! Absolutely love everything. I go through note pads like nobody’s business and this one is so cute! Easy to grab from my purse.👍🏻
Thank you ever so much for the ATCs. They are so nice and I’ve never seen the styles you’ve given me. Thank you for everything.❤️
Comment: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Starting off with lots of hearts, it felt like Christmas as I kept finding so many goodies, I LOVE, LOVE it all, all is so useful. So happy you got me. Putting the kitty key ring on my purse tonight. You couldn't have done any better... So pleased you were my partner, others would be so jealous. Love ya.
Response: Now everytime you take your purse you can think of me. Glad you liked,
Comment: Hi Diane! Sorry for this extremely late rating but I just got back to the mail that arrived at this address while I was away to help my Mom. Thank you so much for the gorgeous bracelets and little encouraging sayings plaque. Along with your kind note, they definitely brightened this gloomy day in the Northeast.
Response: Hope all is better now. Thanks for the heart also
Comment: Diane, I received your letter and photos today; thank you so much! I love the birdhouse in the midst of the cherry blossoms! I liked the idea of putting the photo on the letter paper, but it definitely does look better on the white photo paper. It's too bad that the wind is scattering the blossoms so quickly; Spring flowers are always gone too soon anyway. Enjoy them while you can . Thanks again and have a great weekend!
Response: We will do that again in another swap but on white paper.
Comment: Diane...Love the springy floral journal and especially that it is lined :) Thank you for my extra post-its from your "stash" as well. I am enjoying the TF swaps and since I am no longer working out side the home I have more time to search for treasures and join more in the future!! Hugs...Charlene PS I wanted to mention that I really liked the tag you sent for your swap card (really cute!)
Response: I going to add swap cards I. My A.I group soon. I think they are cute to use and send too.
Comment: Love the envelopes and extra goodies. I thought of airplanes, too. Thanks for sharing the owl ATC and I especially like the old fashioned ice cream graphic on the outer envelope. Very nice swap -- Thanks!
Comment: You did it! I have not worn baseball cap type hats because it's hard with my hair up -- but this one I can tie on! Perfect. I'll use the water holder and the glasses holder--I have reading glasses all over the house, this will keep a pair handy.
Response: Woo wee! Your letter came today too! That cap just looked like you!
Loved that water bottle holder too!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC! I love the embossed paper and the filigree.
I wish I could find such different stamps. I see such fun ones from others... but haven't seen them around to purchase.
Response: Use postage stamps that you get in the mail, not new ones necessary.
Comment: Absolutely loved the ATC you made! I didn't realize that you could use a glue gun to melt the crayons until one of my students told me (my swapping seems to be a topic of interest in my classes). Also the papers you sent are so gorgeous! Thank you for your thoughtfulness!
Response: Thanks for such nice comments. Enjoy our groupðŸ˜€
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty pocket letter. I love all the wonderful details and goodies you tucked in. Those mini tags in the mini envi are adorable. The silver/white butterfly and the pink bird tag make me smile. And I've never seen anything like the tag book you made. Very cool! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Glad you liked it and thank u for the many hearts
Keep swapping in our group
Comment: Diane, thank you so much for my swap, I Love, Love, Love it all, the hot pad is so unusual, the stick for claws will come in handy for something, best of all LOVE the measuring spoons, have never seen any, am going to post on my FB page about them with a picture..so darling, thanks for doing these swaps, you make them so much fun...hugs
Response: Always fun to send to you. Thanks for such a nice response and â¤ï¸
Comment: I looked for an apron and couldn't find one to send to my partner. The cosmetic bag is a good find! And I'm always delighted by more fabric -- which I need like an extra nose -- but love anyway. Thanks.
Response: Good to sniff out stuff my dear.
Thanks for usual heart too.
Comment: great swap..as usual...those papers were great and I cant wait to use them...such a variety...loved the big one with multi-color lines...and the textured one...the extras were an amazing bonus to an already super swap...thank you so much ...

Comment: Loved my goodies and the envies you made. Because of you, this was a fun swap. And in reading your profile I see Jennifer Rothchild is your daughter-in-law??!!! How amazing...I have led several study groups in my church using Jennifer's studies; she is such an inspiring lady. If you'd ever like to exchange personal letters/mail art, let me know and we'll give it a try and see how it turns out. Blessings to ya!

Response: Thanks for nice reply and rating.
Go for it my dear!

Comment: Hi, your envelopes are very pretty and all the embellishments are perfect. I recently downsized, decluttered, my books and had to shop thrift stores to buy one. It was a challenge finding a good price, big enough with pretty pages. The ones you made are great. Thanks
Response: Paid a dollar at Thriftstore saw it and knew it great for envies. Thanks for heart
Comment: What a cute little kit! Thanks for the extra goodies---I will put them to good use! Happy Swapping! I will let you know where and when I Abandon!
Hi Diane, I left your sweet kit near our local fabric store today--I'm sure somebody is gonna love it!

Thank you very much for a wonderful swap - and - Thank you for hosting this swap - Hope you do it again. Happy day to you.
Comment: Love the envelopes you mailed. And the extras too. Noticed your sheep return address label. Do you raise them? I used to have shropshire sheep when I was a teenager. Would love to have sheep again. Always great to see you swaps! Have a great day.
Response: No sheep, just nearby and thanks for heart
Comment: I got your package today, I am without a car to go any where at the moment. But I have my daughters car today so Ill be sure to get your gift out today. I think I will take it to the library, Nice people come in there daily. Thank you so much for the beautiful bracelet. Do you make them? I have one that need to be restrung, and I would be glad to pay you if you would be willing, I do love them. I have small great grandchildren and they sometimes hold to gramma's necklaces and bracelets too tight. LOL thanks again
Response: Did not make that one sorry
I knew you liked bracelets
Comment: Thank you so much for your swap and for your patience at my rating. (very accidental) I love, LOVE the coloring pages!! So very different! Now to find the right time to work on them lol. I love every extra thing too. Especially the inchie!! Thank you!!! ( I need to get back into those too )
Comment: Love the pages! Thank you! It had a postage due of 44 cents but the postman didn't leave the little envelope in the box with it. He will probably remember it tomorrow. No biggy though if he does as I will take care of it. You only had two stamps on the envelope. You might want to add another one next time. :)
Response: I weighed it on stamps.com too! Be glad to send you a stamp! Thanks feel the heart too.
Comment: Diane--I love these two envelopes--what a beautiful job you did in arranging them and adding the border. That helps set off the stamps, makes them stand out and gets rid of any ragged edges that I sometimes get when I've made these envelopes previously.
Hope your new year is off to a great start!
Comment: Hi Diane Thanks so much for the parcel. I love the tea towel and can't wait to try the recipe on it. The stationery is lovely and will come in very handy. Hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Response: Glad you received it. Me joy! Thanks for heart
Comment: â™¥ Thank you for my lovely tree. I had to laugh because I just sent out a swap that needed an elephant on it. Well I will have to save this one for the next time. The horses are perfect for the next phase of that swap .
Comment: Hi Diane! Thank you for the lovely postcards. I love both of them and especially the one with the deer! The notecard with the pansy s is beautiful too. I so appreciate the friendly note. Happy Holidays! Patricia
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful autumn tree! And yes, the colors in Boston were stunning this year...the leaves have only, in the last week or so, finally gone from the trees. It was a beautiful autumn here. Thank you, too, for the note and the stickers...and your envelope was so pretty! xoxo
Response: Thank you for such a nice comment. I try to keep everyone happy. A heartfelt thanks
Comment: I love my parcel. What a wonderful surprise package after a rough workday. I will wear that adorable owl necklace often and brag about where I got it. The frame will look great on my tree and who can't use a gold cloth gift bag. I believe the clip is a shoe clip. It reminds me of the ones my mom used to have she had a pair of white pumps and a pair of black ones and sh would dress them up with all kinds of clips. I really like this one and I'm going to use it as a brooch or scarf clip. The design is terrific. Thank you so very much for the amazing package. Many hearts to you.
Response: My goodness how nice to know all that you commented on. Thank you for delicious heart.
Comment: Thanks for the nice variety of fun envelopes. Of the three, I think the one with the ship is extra-special, and my niece is going to love it when I send her something in the one with fairies. :) Have a wonderful weekend!
Comment: I love the frame and the pen set and I could go for some ice cream now. I have to share this...it's like 90 degrees here and we were gone all day. Mail was not here at 2:30 when we stopped home but 2 boxes sitting outside the door now. I could read Omaha Steaks from the car and i was like oh no...I don't remember ordering anything...then when I got closer I saw it was from you and I guessed it was a swap. If I was ordering dessert it would be the cheesecake...LOL! Thanks for the swap!
Response: Glad you liked. Next time maybe cheese cake. ðŸ“¦
Comment: Thank you for the really cute pocket later. This was my very first one to receive. This was my very first one to receive. I thought you did a nice job on it. Is this the first one you have done as well. There are some neat aspects of it. I really like the little K. Also the quote are very nice. I think that these are going to become a real treasure. I am working on number two this evening to send out. I wish you lots of fun in your training. Thank you again.
Response: What training? No I have done others. Thank u for a heart.
Comment: Hello Dy, I want to thank you for your take on Picasso (great swap) funny thing...I made exactly the same cat for my swap (I love cats!), thank you for the stamps. I'll keep my eyes open for JS photos. Have a great week.
Response: So easy to do, can't believe his painting go girl thousands. Thanks for joining in@
Comment: Hello! I received your PL last week but finally opened them these weekend. I love how simple but lovely it was. It made me not think too much or go overboard on making one and still make something beautiful! Thanks. I also wanted to thank you for forming the group. I tried swapping at the pocket pal network but first of all there is no profile set up, I have to ask each one ehat are their likes and dislikes and there is no accountability - I am still waiting for a couple of swaps that are way out of the deadline and there is no way to rate or know for sure by their rating if they are responsible swappers. So Thanks! I love making PL's but I'll do the swapping here.
Response: How nice. Simple is always more.
Comment: Hi Diane!
Thank you for the lovely blue envies -- I thought it was so nice that you included something in every one of them! Your envies are so precise and well-made. I've already put them in my envie stash for sending special swaps!
Response: Isabellasnow I love that name. Thanks for a nice heart.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely story! I felt so sorry for the main character when things seemed so bad, but when they turned out to be really good I was relieved and happy. And the last sentences made me laugh, if I was her I would never use such a gadget again, too much worries about things that can be very different from what they seem!
Response: Exactly but sometimes you just have that feeling. Thanks for heart.
Comment: I have to give you a heart because thanks to you I had a package to unwrap on my actual birthday:) Washi was on my wish list and I love the blue. Some pens and a journal, too. There was a bookmark in the journal, was it a thrift find?
Response: Nooooo! Journal from Michaell's
Bookmark From the state of Delaware.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely thrift find, I just love hearts! I decorate a tree (artificial) with hearts for February, your lovely heart will be in my tree this year. Loved the V cards, you put a smile in my face :) I thank you for that. Happy everything.
Response: That's what I love to do....put a smile on our swappers face. Thanks heartfully
Comment: Diane I loved the postcard thank you! I'm sorry to hear about some of your journal falling apart. I have not seen mine yet so we will see the condition it comes back in! Best wishes to you and your journal who now needs some TLC!
Comment: Thanks for the post cards. I was so happy to see a Route 66 card. I had one in my collection and recently used it because a partner mentioned she loved Route 66. Now I have a replacement. :-) I also like the art on the "I AM BLESSED" card
Comment: Diane, I got your cards Sat. but was at an all day (and night) crop on that day, so I didn't check mail until last night--sorry to be behind schedule for rating. These cards are great--I'd never have thought about the sticker! You use up lots of scraps to create collages that work very well. Thank you!
Response: Thank u for such a nice response and a heart. You work too hard girl!
Comment: Hi Diane, love the sumac...you can make sumac aide from the flower heads. I made it before, just like using lemons, but it's pink. Love the P.C.'s too. I lived in Lake Worth once upon a time and now live near the smokies. Thanks ever so much...great swap.
Response: Remember, we are neighbors. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Diane~
Thank you for the lovely laurel wreath with the breezy red ribbon! I'll definitely leave it on the polka dot background and display it during Christmas! I love getting your "real" artwork ;+)
Response: You are a sweetheart. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Diane, what a wonderful TSF items, they are so nice, hard to believe these things are TS stuff, got napkin rings, compact, cookie cutter and necklace awesome..love the pretty necklace and everything....beautiful, beautiful, beautiful...Hope you have a Merry Christmas.....more TSF finds next year....thanks so much.
Response: Great! Yup Thriftstore Finds!! Loved the napkin rings and they were only $1. Thanks for a heart.
Comment: Thanks Diane! I loved the great items you sent to me! The Vintage Christmas PC is perfect! Loved the red and green ribbons too! The fabric ATC is great! Its going in my collection for sure! Thanks so much, you definitely sent me a smile! Hugs! :)

Comment: Diane, thank you so much for everything. I love the kitchen towel, the gel stickers and the Christmas tree magnet. Love the Christmas note and the skate ornament. Did you make it? It is very clever. Shirley
Response: Skates I found at a garage sale. Thanks for heart.
Comment: Thanks, I loved it all, I've really fallen in love with tiny envelopes, these are perfect, I always need more note cards and postcards and the sparkly flower stickers are great. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving
Response: Come join my new envelope group too. and thanks for the heart, enjoy your thanksgiving too.
Comment: Diane, Diane, Diane!!! OMGosh ~ I love it! You did something I have never done and want to but I'm nerves! I LOVE the skeleton, please tell me how you did it! Thank you so much and for the awesome extra's! XO Kelly :)
Response: I stamped it! Hopefully it won't wash off, so don't spill that mug! ;)
Comment: they keep telling me that because of the bad weather we re having the computer does not want to work half he time I get on and it goes right off. I love the page you made for me. I will be putting in my book.Looks like a fun place to go and see and as I said in the other message we have pear trees but no like the one you have it is so big. We have pear and Asian pear. Thank you again very much
Response: Got it. Thanks for heart. We will do a Winter one next.
Comment: Yes, I remember the Fuller Brush man (guess the were women too from the letter opener. An FQ is always much enjoyed and the pens, believe it or not, are needed as the favorite one are giving up the ghost and being tossed. Thanks!
Response: Glad you could use. That is a collectors joy The Fuller Brush man
Comment: My friend Diane, I love the fabric you sent. It will go nicely with some other fabric I have to make scissor cozies. The buttons will be used on my button project--covering the frame of a large standing mirror with buttons. And thank you for the paper napkins, they will be used on crafts projects. HUGS!!
Comment: So sorry I missed rating this one. Thanks for the round card. I think this is a great idea. I think his work is deceptively simple looking. It is not so easy to simplify things. That said, I want to one day make a quilt based on his work.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty bloomer! ;-) At first, I was confused because the printed postcard description on the back read "corn-field..."I thought that's not a corn field. Soooo you did an excellent job of recycling an old PC and adhering your own photo to it! Thanks for sharing your precious gift with me!
Response: That is too funny, I didn't even notice that. Thanks for heart.
Comment: I give you a 5 but I realy donÂ´t find you deserve it...as swap hostess you know that an ATC has to have a sturdy background and not to be a piece of ordinary drawing paper and it was cut out very sloppy ... I guess on all the swaps I recieved , I realy donÂ´t have 10 that I didnÂ´t gave an heart , because I believe in the good will of the makers ...but I wrote you a PM and you found that it doesnÂ´t matter that I had a comment but said that I had to rate minimum a 5 ...that Â´s not the spirit for a good swapping ...
Response: I resent to you to please you yesterday. Your comment very unnecessary. But, I appreciate a rating. It was done on watercolor paper and enclosed in a holder not thin at all. It was cut on a cutter and I have no idea what u mean by
sloppy.. In my 8 yrs. swapping I have never been so insulted publicly .like this.
Comment: This card reminds me of a very, very old movie (1920s?) about traveling to the moon. The rocket ship and the moon looked just like that! I wish I could tell you the name of it so that you could look it up, but I don't remember. I loved this swap, I hope we do it again! Thank you!
Response: Absolutely do it again. I know the old none talker movie you mean. Thanks for heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the pencil case. Love these for little item. I really can see better in those. As far as the white makeup my grand children will have a blast with it. The material will be great for doll clothes. Thank you again. Shirley
Comment: Hi Diane I received my parcel and enjoyed opening it. The cloth covered book is just my style. The sticky pads and washi tape bookmarks are great. I have never seen washi tape bookmarks before but they will be very useful - they cannot fall out of the book. I really liked the American dishcloths - I love to receive things with other countries flags or art on them. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Response: A nice comment and a nice heart, thank you
Comment: I got it!~ Thank you for following up on this. I will be sending it on in R22. :) Its a really cool postcard. EDIT: I just got another from you, this must be the first you sent out, its the one in the envelope made of the calendar city scene page. I will also forward this on in R22.
Response: It got a little confusing but glad you received it. You may even get another obese from me.
Comment: Very pretty twinchies, thank you. I adore the photo card you included, peacocks are very special to me as they mean integrity, staying true to yourself. Therefore it came just at the right time...having trouble at work with a so called colleague who is causing trouble... I shall remain Jane and smile....Blessings,Keep up the great work!!!
Response: Amen! Intervention must have made me pick out that card.
Comment: Perfect envelopes and nice stickers, thanks. Yes, I've noticed calendars are getting smaller and thinner. Have you noticed that the glue on store bought envelopes, note cards, greeting cards, etc. is poor quality and doesn't come completely to the corners making you have to tape them shut?
Response: Things are getting smaller, cheaply made and cost more.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely card. Yes, one must keep active. I think you are way ahead of me. I stil think of myself as being in my 30's, I'm actually 49, yet physically, I feel much older because of my R.A. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Comment: Diane, Sorry I forgot to rate you until now..Love the items I received in this swap..don't own an apron, this will be handy, love the bitty holders, and the bookmark will be handy...Happy Thanksgiving.
Response: Glad you liked. Thanks for heat. Happy thanksgiving to you
Comment: A big thank you, Diane, I loved them all. Surprisingly I am not instructed in my actual art, University only guided in my choices from a conceptual basis, how to plan a piece, what doesn't look right, the right tools to use etc,. I am quite self taught like you. I have a lot of fun with my art. which is what it is all about, I reckon.,
Comment: Thanks so much for the great envelopes! I love that you included the labels~ That's such a great idea. One thing was that I couldn't find your information in the swap, so that's why it took me a little while to rate. Just a friendly reminder!
Comment: Love the second of things about you. I suppose if I lived 35 years in Florida I might not like summer either. Nope, I'd still love it. lol The cold and damp air like we are having now makes me hurt all over. Prefer the heat. Thanks for a fun card.
Response: Some like it hot. I believe that was a Jack Lemmon movie by same name. Me I like the coooool. Thanks
Comment: You spoiled me with this swap! the tape measurer, my old one has been been in my purse since 1988, Mother gave it to me, said if you're going to shop thrift stores you need one. The lemon board, what is ice tea without sugar & lemon! Thank you, will add this package to my list of 'remember when' (:
Response: So glad it pleased you! A heartful thanks too!
Comment: Thank you so much. I just love to see different fabrics and patchwork is my favorite. I did not put a backing on my block. I believed it to be O.K. either way. The envelope is beautiful. Thanks again.
Response: Hostess mentioned backing so I did it that way. Easier to not do it that way. So happy you gave me a heart too.
Comment: I got home from work and read sone before bed. read the rest at work right now (11:52am) and i loved your answers. your answer to the joke question made me chuckle. Thanks for your answers. have a great day :)
Comment: Dear Lady.... How beautiful the postcard you sent! I know I'll be placing this in the post office for sure! I post pics on my flickr and facebook... so be sure to check them out! Thanks for participating in these swaps! It's a riot to see where you're placing them in your community!! Thanks so much for the awesome piece of work!
Comment: Thankyou Diane for the lovely photos, and I love the book., I love the flower photo its beautiful.The beaches are nice and I love the clouds. The sun setting is lovely. Thankyou Daine for the photos love Jennifer
Comment: No confusion necessary - looks like you did everything you were supposed to do! Thanks for sending it my way - now I just need a prompt for it from Mona (and how lucky that you got yours back!).
Comment: OMG, I LOVE the notecards. Never seen one shaped like a pumpkin before and I think I may lose Minnie to my 5-year old niece she was like "ooh ginny something I can write luke bryan a note in" LOL
Comment: Thanks for the Tennessee postcard and the Great Smoky Mountains NP card. I have family in the Knoxville area and visited there earlier this year while in the south to see my son graduate from Nuclear Power School. Lovely area!
Response: My favorite place to live. Thanks for the heart. I live about 17 mies east of Knox. Small world.
Comment: Great fabric postcard Di. It arrived in a PO body bag but totally untouched. I think the pliable floppiness of the batting may have been the problem. Sometimes a stiff piece of cardboard on the clear envie might help it clear PO scanning machines without jamming machine. Thanks so much for participating in my swap. Btw, love the picture of your grandsons hugging and kissing you. Glad you tagged it to my wall. It makes me smile. :-)
Response: I usually do that, don't know why I forgot to stiffen it up. Getting old and losing it I guess.
Comment: I enjoyed reading your answers to the questions and we agree on a lot of things. You've done a ton of swaps and I have too. Life is just too short not to give hearts and stars and brighten people's days. You definitely brightened mine with your beautiful southwest canyon photo; is it near Lake Powell?
Response: It was not shot by me, but thanks for nice remarks. And a heart, love getting them
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card, the Flower was so adorable and the Inchies, those are so awesome. I'm new to the whole Inchie thing but so far it's been fun coming up with ways to create them. Thank you!
Comment: Nice tree ATC! â™¥ Looks like more than just "knobs" in the background. I miss TN will have to manage to visit some time. My grandparents had a big farm in Knox county, so I mostly know eastern TN. â™¥
Comment: THank you so much for everything you sent! The audiobook was just in time as I am half way through #7 :) My boys immediately began playing with the little car too. Loved the fabric panel you sent and am brainstorming something to do make with it! And the pendant is pretty too. Thanks so much!
Response: Glad you got it all. Thanks for the heart
Comment: Hi Diane! Sounds like you were having a lovely day! I have gotten into bird watching as of late! TY for the lovely pc, sharing about your day, and for joining the swap! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: what an amazing letter! I love how the paper matches the poem. I've had some trouble deciphering the handwriting, but your poems are really nice. I like the first one, Remember, and the third one most.
Response: Well in the fourth grade I got the best handwriting award. Being 77 yrs. old I must have been tired of writing.Thanks for the heart though.,
Comment: Cute dog--labs are really popular here. One of my good friends family always had Boston terriers and I am always on the lookout for stuff with them for her. thanks for the postcard.
Response: I just put Boston Terrier collectives on ebay as I have too many?
Comment: Thanks for sending so promptly and sharing stories about your pets! As I can't have any where I live, it's always nice to hear about others furry family members. Can't wait to add to this one!
Response: Being retired I can send sooner than most. Enjoy!
Comment: I received the photo pc today. I love it. Especially nice because I used to live in Clearwater when I was a young girl and remember going down to Tarpon Springs with my mom and dad. Such a cool place. Thanks for the memory jogger.
Response: Thanks for the heart glad to jog your memory.
Comment: Hello. Thanks so much for the photos. I love the fruit bowl stainglass you have in your kitchen. It is gorgeous. I received the same church photo from my other swap partner. Is this a coincidence??? Thanks again! Oh and I LOVE the handmade envie...very cool!!!
Response: No, I was with her when she took that both she and I. Funny though
Thanks for a heart too
Comment: Thanks so much for the book and your patience! Despite the fact that I love to read "girly books," I've never read Nicholas Sparks and am looking forward to doing so soon. I realize now that for next time, I'll have to put more of a detailed list about my wants and don't wants to help out the next person with picking something out. Thanks again!
Response: You will enjoy Nicholas Sparks book. Yes, put more on your profile for next swap.
Comment: Hi Diane! Thanks for swapping - I love the name Max (you've inspired me) and I love Ireland too (Just over the water here in Glasgow). You're a very switched on lady...my gran at 80 can't even switch a computer on! :p x
Response: My kids think I am amazing! Just trying to keep moving. Thanks

I loved the cookbook...love, love, love cooking & cookbooks!!!!! The music is great to. I've already played it while I cleaned and danced around the house :) hahaha! The magnet was great too! Thank you so much again! This was a great & fun swap!!! <3
Comment: Thank you for the very nice comment. Even though my partner was unhappy, I wasn't rating down because they didn't want to mess up my ratings. I just wish they had talked to me instead. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks again!
Comment: Thanks for the invite to draw, Diane. I cannot draw anything, though. I couldn't draw to save my own life! LOL. Thank God people like you CAN, otherwise, there would be no collages in the world!
Comment: Thank you for the horse picture. It makes me yearn for the days when I had my own horse. These days I don't think I could mount a horse, maybe a shetland pony> lol Thanks for hosting this swap. I will check out your other months. Happy Holidays
Response: A favorite photo of mine. Enjoy the season.
Comment: Thanks for the cute Winter Block. It reminds me of the years growing up where it snowed more often than where we live now in NC. We could see the barns when we drove through the country. Happy swapping!
Response: Glad it gave you a memory. Thanks for the heart too
Comment: Thank you for the two cookbooks. I have already found a recipe fpr tonights supper. the Nicolas Sparks book i s great. I haven't read that one.

Thank you for everything. Shirley
