Comment: That's a big little library,lol. XD It has some charm though. So many book options! I didn't have so many at all. I would be thrilled to find such an antique book, definitely with the newspaper. Great swap, thanks.
Response: Thanks for the rating and the <3!
We have many public bookshelves and sometimes I can find a gem, but mostly something interesting to read!
Comment: Thank you for taking your time to write in different forms of paper. It’s certainly was worth reading through all your interests and knowing more about an individual and trying to get to know their personality.
Comment: Thank you. Your well written review has convinced me to track down the book you read for the February challenge. I very much enjoyed your pm. I found the book in my library's online catalog. I am excited to check it out.
Comment: The swap asked to send through Swap Messages and you DID NOT B/C the email. However you did send on time and it was within requirements and I am okay with that Thank you for always participating and keep at it
Response: I am so sorry about the wrong method to send. My bad...
Comment: Thank you so much for your book recommendation on the cute postcard. The books sounds good, I want to say I read about it when I was at Barnes and Noble...I will take a look at the library. Thank you so much!
Response: You are welcome ! I really hope, you like the book as much as I did.... Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: I'm so sorry for my late reply, I haven't been very active here lately and it's showing :( I really enjoyed your swap though, I wish more people would take on reading again :) thanks for sharing!
Comment: Really nicely done, I feel as though I've gotten to know you a bit...and I just watched Emma Watson in Beauty and the Beast over the weekend, she is a lovely woman...Thanks so very much for swapping with me, best wishes to you!
Response: AWWWW ! So sweet ! Thank you ! All the best for you as well. Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Hi Sylvia, Thank you so much for the wonderful pocket letter :) I loved it. You put a lot of work into it and it shows. Thanks for the lovely treats in the pockets, I love the little pattern :) Great swap xx
Response: I am happy that you got it and that you had a lot of patience with me. You are welcoem ! And besides, whats a PL without treats ?? ;-) Thanks for your kind words, the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Slyvia, Danke fur die nette Leckereien! Ich mag das Tee, die Aufkleber, und die Postkarten! Hallo von der U.S.A.! Meine mutter war im Deutschland geboren, auf Insel Sylt, so ich kann ein bischen Deutsch sprechen. :-) Ich spreche Deutsch manchmal mit ihr. Ich lese nicht Bucher aber Ich wurde gern auf. Es tut mir Leid, ich wollte zu ihr ein Herz geben!
Response: Oh ! Was eine Ãœberraschung ! Dein deutsch ist echt gut ! Sprichst Du mit ihr noch deutsch oder liest Du BÃ¼cher auf deutsch oder ...?
Comment: Thank you all the wonderful stickers and yes I would like to be pen pals. I'll.sit down this weekend and write you a letter thank you for asking. I also use to live in Germany myself and would like a pen pal from there I do miss it maybe one day I'll get back for a visit. Thanks again for the stickers.
Response: You are welcome ! I am happy you liked the stickers. And please do write back ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thank you for your letter of questions. I do hope 2017 looks up. It is hard to accept and adjust the sails of changing winds. I guess it is one of the lessons of this life like it or not. Crazy! Anyway I wish you and your family the very best! :D
Response: Yes, you are very right, life has lessons we never want ;-) I have to accept it. Thanls for your well wishes ! And thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful letter! I just got it today and will be writing you back soon. I am glad things are getting better for you and I'm sure your positive attitude has a lot to do with that! Have a great w/end!
Response: Thank you for your kind words ! Also it has to do with the support I get :-) I am looking forward to your reply ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thanks for spoiling me with all those goodies Sylvia, it was a party to look through everything en think about what i will do with it all. I esp. love the vintage stuff, the stickers and the heart pattern paper and the two pockets. Have a great week! Groetjes Barbara
Response: You are very welcome ! Ijust couldnt stop, coz I found so much ;-) Have fun using it.... Thanks for the kind words and the <3 !
Comment: Lovely journal! I really enjoyed reading it, thank you for taking the time to write! :) I actually love the journal so much I would love to do a blank journal swap with you if you're interested! I could send you a journal from America to swap with one similar to the one you sent me? Message me! :)
Response: Which journal did I send to you ? Can youmail me the cover ? I will check if I find it again, Thanks for the rating and thw <3 !
Comment: Thanks for the many cool images, and the beautiful stamps you have used on the envelope. Too bad the images weren't clipped neatly and precisely,as per swap descriptions. Most of them were cut out roughly from the magazines. But I think I can use most of them :-)
Comment: This didn't just put a smile on my face, it made me speachless. I loved the goodies and tea and paper, all of it. Your letter made me smile. Being in love is such a great feeling. Congratulations.
Response: You're welcome ! I am happy that you enjoyed it all, that was my intention :-) Thanks for your kind words, your rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: You were late on completing this swap (2 days) even though you were online during the 5 days you had to do this. No communication before 30/1 when you said you had trouble figuring out how to do this. There were perfect instructions on the swap so it really isn't a good excuse. Sorry but this is how I feel I should rate you. I told you in a message I feel like I have to think about how to rate you but you haven't even bothered to read it so I feel like you really don't even care if I give you this 3 :(
Response: Yes, You have messaged me and I read your message. But you can set it on keep as new and it might show on your site that I havent read it. Yes I was late, you are right. And yes I have been online before, but with my mobile and I couldnt figure out how it works with my desktop not to talk of my mobile. I had never done a swap like this before and so I asked for help, which I was given. But it still took some days to figure it out. I dont use sickness or problems as an excuse to be late. If you cant accept it, I have to accept your rating.
Comment: Very nice letter I got from you. I lived in Dusseldorf and was so glad to see your from the Koln area. If you could send me your return address in a message, I would really enjoy writing you back. Have a great day!
Response: Oh! Great ðŸ˜‰ Thanks for the rating and the <3. I'll message you immediately.
Comment: Hi Sylvia! Thanks for your wonderful journal. I loved the front already, what a nice quote! <3 I have received it a couple of days ago and I am still reading. Yay! We seem to have a few things in common and I enjoy your stories a lot. Thanks and happy swapping!
Response: I am so happy you got it and you like it ! I love the quote as well.... That was my reason to buy it, although I dont wanted to buy more journals ;-) Have fun reading... Thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely letter. I read it while walking up to the bus stop to get my kids. I hope you get everything your working towards. Have a great day! Remember to Smile!
Response: After your comment and rating I definitely HAD to smile ! Thank you !!!
Comment: It is the most wonderful package I have ever received â˜ºï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ Loved every thing youvr sent â¤ï¸ðŸ’ŒðŸ’Œ can't thank you enough :)) I'm so glad and lucky to be your swap partner :)) thank you again â¤ï¸ Have a lovely day ðŸ’ - Jayana.
Response: AWWWWH !!! I am soo happy that you love all the goodies I sent to you. HAve fun using it all up. Thanks for your kind words, your rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: I loved your letter, Sylvia! My boyfriend was sitting next to me as I read it, and upon your recommendation to read *The Martian,* I said he and I should read it together. He told me just yesterday someone offered him a copy at work but he turned it down! I will write to you. By the way, did you include the bag of Lemon Cake tea with the letter? LOVE it! Hoping the German store near me sells it. Take care. -Rhonda
Response: Yep, Lemon Cake tea was from me :-) It is great, did you get more in the shop ??? Have you started the Martian by now ???? I am looking for to your letter..... Thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: I could definitely give us a try. Maybe I can start first this time because I'm terrible at waiting. So if you're still interested let me know. I have a lot of authors I know a bit about because I remember their little writer's thing like "About the author..." in the book. I like to journal about my writing ideas and daily assurances.
Response: Thanks for the raqting and the <3 ! Books... That'll be our pasion ;-) Check your inbox....
Comment: Thank you for the profile comment! I also love Monet, and have seen a few in museums, one is in the Portland Museum. That is fantastic that you spent a week in Paris. I've heard it can take an entire week to see everything in the Louvre alone. One day when we travel to Europe, I will have trouble deciding where to visit first! I hope you have a lovely weekend. : )
Response: Thank you for your nice words and the <3 Paris will lead you, dont worry ;-)
Comment: What a great assortment of so many items you sent! Thank you. It will be great fun to use all this ephemera! I think my very favorites are the little Hello Kitty envelope, the Austria postcard and the Carmen Agumen tissue (used to wrap fruit??)
Response: Yep, I think it was a fruit wrapper... I love them. Am happy you like the things I sent, have fun creating something wonderful with them. Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Hi Sylvia-
Thank you for your great letter. It sounds like we have a similar love of reading! I am swamped with work this week, but will write back this weekend. I look forward to talking about books and getting to know each other. :-)
Response: Yes ! Wonderful, hope we have tons of books to write about and mabe 2 or 3 other things ;-) Looking forward to your letter ! Thanks for the rating and the 3 !
Comment: You were so quick with your read! I guess that's one of the benefit of the genre; it's easy to read. I'm glad you enjoyed it and felt that it helped you experience something new. The book you read sounds fascinating. I hope you'll enjoy more graphic novels in the future :-)
Response: Yes I was quick, I was prepared ;-) And it is because there's not as much text as in a novel, but you have to enjoy the drawings. Thanks for the rating and the heart !
Comment: Thanks so much for the nice letter and bookmark. I just finished a book that was partially located where I live - I agree - it's definitely different when you know the place, I could really place each location in my mind. I'm going to look into a few of the books you mentioned. Happy Swapping!
Response: Hope you enjoy the books ! Thanks for your rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: Oh my! I loved the package enough for many hearts even before I got to the actual journal pages. The packaging so unique and beautiful, the extras are terrific. Then the journal pages WOW how creative. What is especially ironic and awesome is I have been collecting as part of my smash book garment labels, but I never would have thought to use them the way you did with labels on the back making them useful as journaling spots. And then hanging them like a banner, wonderful. Thank you so very much for making this swap so special. Many hearts and smiles
Response: ........ I am out of words by all this ! Thank you sooo much ! I am happy that I could inspire you. I love these pages and I try to find something new for every month. Mostly am inspired by the things I find to use on the pages. Thanks a million for all you said. I am grateful.
Comment: Wow, I dream of getting below 100 in my TBRs. I have a couple of Stephen Fry's books on my TBR as well, so that caught my attention. Hey, sometimes it's okay to give up on books that aren't for you--there are only so many hours in a day, after all!
Response: How many books on your TBR stack???? I dont want overly much... Thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: Love the pages! Of course. You always do such nice things. Thank you so much! And thank for the extra papers, too.
Response: YOU are always welcome ! Thank you for this wonderful journal idea. I am already sad it will be over soon. Hope we will find another idea ;-) Thanks for your kind words, your rating and the <3 !
Comment: I am so excited to have part of my Rainbow Journal be from a swap friend from Germany. What beautiful additions your pages will be to my journal. Thank you for making them very special and extra hearts if I could for the extras you added to the swap. Smiles for your day.
Response: :-)) Now I've a HUGE smile on my face ! i lvoe it, when my creations make people happy. Hope you can add some of your style to the pages and enjoy working on them ! Thanks for your kind words, the rating and the <3 !!! You are always welcome !
Comment: Thank you Sylvia for the items you sent. I especially loved the translucent daisy paper and the Cineplex ad (in German) for the book thief. I havent seen the movie but I have read the book. Happy swapping :)
Response: Yay ! That's how it should be, love and use the goodies :-) Create ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thank you for the recommendations! It is too bad that they aren't available in English yet, but perhaps someday. I read the Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd for this swap. It's based on a true story about a woman who opposed slavery and fought for abolishment. Loved it!
Response: I am happy you liked what I wrote ! I will check out your book.
Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter and beautiful post card. It was a real pleasure getting to know a bit about you. Hoping we will be long time pen pal friends. I'll be writing back soon!
Response: YES ! Thats what I was looking for, to give you a nice time reading it ! I am looking forward to get your answer.... Fingers crossed we will write forever ;-) Thanks for the rating and the <3
Comment: 6/26 ~ Hmmmm, I'm confused. I had you swap in my "to rate" pile, then I saw I rated it, now I'm all sorts of confused. I guess it just got mixed back in with my "to rate" pile, but I mentioned you didn't really like the book and you did, so I'm all sorts of confused, so I'm back to leave a new comment. LOL! I'm glad you DID like it, and since you asked me, I read both a 1st and last book for my swap. 1st ~ I know Lucy by Melissa Pearl, Last ~ The Perfect Murder by Brenda Novak.
Response: I cant love every single book, but I love those challenges. More of them :-) Thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: Oh wow.... One of the BEST swaps I've ever received here on my time on swapbot, I cried with joy the book you made me is so special and cute I love all the different envelopes and lots of teas, all your letters included are so fun to read and I think we are going to be great friends :)
Response: *sigh* My goodness, I am speechless !!!! Thank you sooo much for your kind and sweet words. You made my day. I desperately needed something like this .... So, am looking forward to reading your answer ;-) Hope it will work out for us and we will be great and crafty friends :-) Thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: You found some really lovely papers to use; almost too pretty for scribbling notes! :) Thanks!
Response: You're welcome ! I wanted them to be pretty, coz you never know what comes to your mind when you see a piece of paper and it hits you ! Have fun writing on it or crafting with it.Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Beautiful pages that are a fantastic addition to my journal!! Thank you, sylvia--they are gorgeous, and just perfect for my diary/journal! (-and thank you for being an awesome swapper :) )
Response: Oh my.... You made me blush !!! I am shining bright red now LOLOL I always want to make my partner happy.... I am soooo happy you like the pages and you love them for your journal. Maybe we swap again in the future.... Thanks for your words, the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thank you so much for your great answers! Like you, I absolutely LOVE the library and always, always have a thousand books out at a time. I also have an e-reader that I got myself for Christmas but I've yet to read anything on it. I much prefer the feel of paper in my hand. I have all the Diana Gabaldon books but I've yet to read any of them. You're about the 5th person to say that they are great. I suppose I should at least read "Outlander" and see for myself. My apologies for the late rating. Life has been throwing hurdles at me left and right and I really wanted to give your answers the attention they deserved. Thank you!
Response: YES for libraries and real books !! May the never die ;-) Go and enjoy the Gabaldon books.... Do yourself good ! Thanks for your wonderful words, the rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: Not really into a lot of romance, but I'll download the e-book and try it. Glad you liked your book choice. I liked 'the red theme', with the hearts, the red pen and envelope, great idea. Thanks for sharing.:-)
Response: Am happy you liked the red theme :-) Go and try the book, you wont regret it. Let me know - if you like - whats your idea about it. Thanks for the rating and the <3!
Comment: Sorry sorry sorry, ich habe vÃ¶llig vergessen, dir ein Rating zu senden. Ich habe ehrlich gesagt nur aus Pflichtbewusstsein bei diesem Swap mitgemacht, aber irgendwie war es ganz witzig, deine Antworten zu lesen, vorallem weil sie oft mit meinen Ã¼bereinstimmen. Ich bin auch fÃ¼r mehr Type 3 swaps, wenn Geld fÃ¼r Porto bleibt.
Man sieht sich (in zukÃ¼nftigen Swaps). :)
Response: PflichtbewuÃŸsein ! Was eine deutsche Tugend ;-) hihi Ich fands auch wichtig dabei zu sein und hoffe, wir sehen uns bald. Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thanks for sharing your survey; I enjoyed your answers (I read a lot of crime stories, too!). I haven't seen Kenneth Branagh's "Much Ado About Nothing" in YEARS, but I remember I really liked it. :-)
Response: You are welcome ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: I love the journal and it was so well do ne and colorful and gave me recipes form your culture and your side of the world which is fun. I would definitely like to do another journal swap with you.
Response: I am so happy you love thejournal and you enjoyed reading it! And more that you like to do it again ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: I'm definatly with you on question 20, when do you like a book. If the book makes you forget everything around and you have the feeling like you are in the book, then the writer did a very good job. ^_^ But I really loved reading your answers. ^_^ Thank you for sharing.
Response: I am happy you enjoyed reading it ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thanks for the card. I talk about hippos during my tour of King Tut! They are such powerful creatures, and the ancient egyptians were so superstitious about them they would not put them in tombs usually, but if they did they'd snap the legs off the statue so if it came alive it could not run about. â™¥
Response: Men, the old egyptians really knew how to deal with this dangerouse creature ;-) Thanks for your rating the <3 and more insight !!!
Comment: Love my covers thank you. Beautifully made! And thank you for so many excellent extras. You have spoilt me. See you again in another swap.
Response: Oh,am soooo happy you like them !!! And for the extras, you deserve every single bit,coz it was BIG fun swapping with you. I will miss it. Hope to see another swap like this....Take care and swap with you soon! Thanks for your kind words,the rating and the <3!
Comment: Danke fÃ¼r deine Karte, liebe Sylvia. Ich habe mich sehr gefreut.
Diesen Vorsatz finde ich prima.. vielleicht lesen wir ja in dem ein oder anderen Swap voneinander.
Response: :-)) Ich hoffe sehr, das wir mal wieder swappen, es sind ja irgendwie nicht so arg viele Deutsche hier.... SchÃ¶n, daÃŸ Dir meine Karte gefallen hat. Auch Dir ein wunderbares 2014 ! Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: The card you chose to send is beautiful!! Thank you so much. I agree... the holidays always promise something wonderful but the only grand thing about it is the amount of work we have to do! I hope you survived in one piece and can bet back to the comfortable daily grind now that they have passed. :-)
Response: Yes, WORK !!! And yes, I have survived in one piece, coz I know how to keep myself busy, thanks to swap-bot and books. Hope you are okay by now as well... Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Thanks for your lovely letter, Sylvia. I actually received it about a week ago but have been so incredibly busy that I didn't even have a chance to read it until just this evening. I wanted to savour it! I will certainly write you back and hope we can become long-term penfriends. Of course, your return address got torn when I excitedly opened the envelope and I can no longer read it. Would you be able to send it to me via private message? Thanks!
Response: I am happy that you enjoyed reading my letter and am looking forward to your reply. I could need another long-term friend... Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: This list is fantastic! FANTASTIC! Hullaballoo is one of my favorite words! I think I will use it first since the "shit happening" right now is causing quite a hullabaloo in my world! I needed some inspiration that will help me maintain a sense of humor! Thank you! :) â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Yeah ! That was my dream to send words and someone loves them as much as I do !!! Hullabaloo... I can fantasize about it and always come up woth something new. Enjoy and journal ! Thanks for your wonderful words, the rating AND the <3 !!!
Comment: Oh wow! I can't wait until I can start opening all of the little gifts - it is so exciting! What a fantastic parcel. Thank you so much
Response: I am happy it is already there and you enjoyed just looking at it ;-) Keep your excitement a few more days and you can start to open it!!! Be strong... And enjoy! Thanks for the rating and the heart!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the letter and of course for the little rat :)) I promise I'll name it! Now I just hope that there will be more swaps for the re-reading HP - everytime I read these books I'm enjoying it ^^
Response: YAY, am happy you enjoyed the letter ! I just swa swap no 2 is up !!!!
Whats the name for the rat ???
Thanks for your rating and the <3 !
Comment: Such a fun package of goodies. The journal is awesome and the paper dolls and clothes are just so sweet. Thank you so much for the swap. I really look forward to playing with all thiis fun stuff.
Response: Oh,you made my heart jump !!! Thats what I aimed for, your joy is mine :-) Thanks for the wonderful comment, great rating and the <3 !!!
Hope we will swap another time !!!
Comment: I recd your page. but, you were suppose to make 2 pages both sides. I love what you did. The handmade paper and garden theme. I have a cottage garden, so I'll make great use of those pages. So instead of making me another front/back page, just send me a postcard from where you live. I collect them.I love the newspaper too.My sister-in-law is from Frankfort, Germany and I know she'll get a kick out of reading it. Plus I can use it in my art works later. Thanks ever so much. bearnbabs Let me know when you send the PC. Thanks again.
Response: PLEASE !!! Chekc the envie again! I know I have sent 2 pages front and back, I made 4 and only two are still on my desk. I totally confused and worried !
Let me know, if you have found something.
Comment: Holy cow. That was the most awesome journal ever! And you're right...we did take two completely different approaches. I feel compelled to send you something more artful now. I am committing to sending you some of my knitting in the month of April. Keep your eye out for it!
Response: I am SOOOO happy that you love it ! Just enjoy, okay ?!? Thanks for your kind words and the rating AND the <3 ! I am looking forward to the little surprise in the mail. Thanks.
Comment: thank you for resending... i really didn't receive it the first time. but i love your pins.
Response: I resend today. I am shocked that I didnt read a single word from you, that you havet received anything from me. So please, answer my message and lets work this out ! THX ! - 5mins later !!!! honestly ! I am glad it was that easy to fix things. Thank yoiu for the rating and the <3 and your words !!!
Comment: What a fun journal. I really have enjoyed all the bright graphics that you encluded. My hubby spent three months in Germany several years ago, and he asked to read it. He really enjoyed the map. It is a very happy journal. Thank you so much.
Response: Oh, I am so happy that I didnt make just one person, but two instead :-) Thanks for your comment and the rating AND the heart !!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the card, the paintings are gorgeous (: It was nice to hear some about you. Feel free to send me a PM if you still are looking for composition books, I'd be happy to swap with you. -Met
Response: Thanks for the wonderful rating ! Be sure you get a PM ;-)
Comment: Thank you for the great list! It seems that we have quite a bit in common :) I'd also love a huge dog - I already have a German Shepherd but I'm thinking more like Great Dane :P they're beautiful!
Comment: Dear Sylvia, Thank you so much for this great journal, I just love it, it is very creative and inspiring, also thank you for great cards and goodies, I'm at work now but I can't wait to go home, take a cup of tea and read this great journal:)
Comment: My husband put on a pot of coffee and then walked down to the mailbox this afternoon. When he returned, he called up to me, "Coffee's ready and you've got mail." I was so delighted to sit down with a hot cup of coffee and your wonderful letter. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and to send all of the great goodies for this swap!
Comment: I went to the postoffice this morning (I also have a po box like you) and had about a dozen letters & packages, yet after opening everything your letter was by far the one that made my day !!! I had so much fun reading through it .. who would have thought a 20 page letter wouldn't get boring one bit?! LoL You're right it's hard to find a penpal to easily click with but I think we can make it work, I'm already writing back so hopefully this swap was a successful one in finding a friend :)
Response: Hurray ! I always hope for something like this to happen :-) But it is very scarce and yet it seems to have happened ! MAGIC !!! I cant wait to go to the PO Box get yours and read it. Thanks for the sweet rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: Looks like the Germans are using their sunday evening/night for swaps *lol...I just sent out my questionaire and then saw yours in my inbox...^^ So sad that you made such an awful experience with meeting your penpal in France...I only met one of my pals and it was great...I love what you wrote about penpals...I think the word should changed into "pen friends" as this is what it's really about! :)
Response: Swap-bot is definitely good for Sundays round the clock ;-) I am happy you enjoyed reading though it.
Yes, if it works, they are definintely pen FRIENDS !
Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: Heute habe ich Deinen Brief und deine Ueberraschung bekommen, vielen Dank dafuer! Alles andere dann im Brief. Fuehl Dich gedrueckt!
Response: :-) Freue mich immer wieder Ã¼ber diesen Kommentar !!!
Komischerweise kommen aber die Briefe nicht oder sehr spÃ¤t an.... Eigenartig. Bis dato ist nix von Dir hier....
Thanks for the rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: I really loved how you displayed the 5 things that "are you" :) You're so creative! Thank you also for all the other things you've sent me. The notebook is adorable :) I'd surely love to swap with you again sometime! x Fab
Response: Yeah, some things work ;-) LOLOL Looking out for our next swap.... Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: I love all the ephemera you included in the journal. I have a friend who speaks and reads German who I will have help me read some of the papers you included in the journal. Thank you for sharing with me : )
Response: It was big fun making it and I am sooo happy, that you love it. Enjoy the more when you get the german part...
Thanks for the rating and the heart !
Comment: Thank you for a fabulous and interesting assortment of items! Love all the Dutch items you sent, thanks for including stamps and cat stickers! and the butterflies will not be in a smash book as they are perfect for an atc swap I am working on-I do not have to hunt for them as you put them right in my hand! thanks again!
Comment: Thank you so much - I LOVE my pages - so many little details I hadn't thought of...and I can copy in the future. Yes please to swap again later.....and do plan your next holiday in Scotland!! You will love it.
Response: You are very welcome ! I am happy that you like the pages and that they inspired you :-) I am looking forward to our next swap. IHAVE TO go to Scotland one fine day and be sure I will ask YOU for tips !
Thanks for the rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: I love the pc's you sent me of your house and where you live. I just imagaine all the fun you can have in your backyard, and all the wonderful birds that would find it interesting too. Thank you so much for sending me a front view and a back view. My backyard is not so populated with trees but we still get the tui here when the wattle is in flower as they are nector birds. Because I have two cats that love to hunt birds, I can't put up nector and bird feeders as that would be cruel to the birds.
Response: Thank you sooo much for your lovely comment ! Yes, we definately enjoy being outside. Yesterday my hubby and I sat outside and enjoy the the warm weather and the time without the kids ;-)
Thanks for the rating and the <3 !!!
Comment: thank you for sending 2, and you still get a 5. but i honestly don't feel you should have signed up for swaps let alone host one when you knew you were moving. If you had made these before you moved that would have been fine but 2 weeks after?
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note card. Very good goals for 2012. Will your new home be closer to your job? Definitely sending good and soothing vibes your way!
Response: Nope, not really closer, but closer to my daughters kindergarten and later primary school, saves me a lot of walking around ;-) And I can relax in the garden !!! Make BBQ's....
Thanks for the rating and the <3 !
Comment: I LOVE it. It is so cool. I love the filter book and will have to try doing one. I love how you reinforced and tied off the edge. I adore the fb's also. I'm going to have to look into them some more. Such a cool book. Thank you.
Response: I am sooo happy that you love it!!! I wasnt sure, if it is what you are looking for. Thanks for the rating and the <3 :-)
Comment: <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
I love your pages, they are amazing!! Storm must have taken you ages to make =O And Bucket list is such a cool idea!! And and and I love them all =) Thanks a million!

Comment: Thank you so much for all the great stuff! My husband will love the schoko-bons, they are his favorite, we can't get them here. The cow is just priceless, and a whole BOOK of killer sudoku is like a wet dream for me. Even the bookmark that was in the back of the book, with a combination table, just perfect. I so needed that! Couldn't find cuter stickers if you looked for a year. Sooo worth waiting for =) <3 <3 <3
Response: *phew* I am sooo... happy that I picked the best for you AND your hubby ! Thanks for the great rating and the <3's

Comment: Thanks so much for the gorgeous little book. I agree with you about seeing things afresh through a child's eyes. Your children are gorgeous, you must be a very proud mum. My daughter loves your drawings of the Simpsons and the mermaid and asked if she can keep the journal - so you have a fan LOL (ADDED LATER) She has gone to sleep with the journal!
Response: Thanks a lot for the rating and the <3 ! Since it was my first art journal I wasnt sure if I am "good" enough...
But since I have a fan, I AM :-)
Maybe you can share the journal ?!? ;-)

Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely paper. You had no idea, but I collect hippos ever since I was 4 years old. We were in a zoo and I yawned at the same time a hippo opend it's mouth. That is when my grandfather started calling Hippos 'Kims'. And that is when my collection started.
I did give it up and kept only the special items, but this notepad therefore is a hit! And I immediately added hippo's to my profile.
Enjoy the weekend!
Response: I have more than hundred hippos in my cupboard.Maybe I keep it in cartons and only few displayed...
