Comment: You taught me a lot about journals so thank you. I have traveled most of my life so do not wish to again. Yes you eat out a lot I only eat out maybe six times a YEAR. And no I do not use social media at all.
Comment: Lovely swap! Thank you so much for all the goodies! I have a binder where I put all the scriputers that I write in order and then I have a swap bot scriputer binder where I am putting together from all my partners! Glad to add this one to it! Thanks again! Hugs + Prayers
Comment: Karen! I so love the journal you sent to me!! I feel like I got to know you -how fun is that? I hope when I get to go on a cruise that youâ€™ll be there. I think we would laugh at the same things and I know we would eat the same things. I love all the goodies you sent. I have a dog and a cat so the coupons are great. Canâ€™t wait to try the mask, but Iâ€™m going to your blog first. Whoever gets you for a swap partner is really lucky. I wish I could give you more hearts! Love, Jan
Comment: Bummed that it took as long as it did (almost three months) but I don't want to give you your first 3, that would just ruin the fun of the hobby (plus it took me a while to rate so that's on me). Thank you for sending it.
Comment: I rec'd and read through the journal already! I loved it!! I'll be sending something in return so am not going to address anything specifically here! Will msg you when it's sent! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ Thanks so much! ðŸ˜

Comment: Thank you so much for the journal and the goodies! White chocolate hot chocolate is my favorite but it's been so long since I've had it! :) I always enjoy hearing updates on you and your family and the journal you used is so cute! I hope 2016 is much kinder to y'all then 2015!! <3 I wasn't so fond of the journal I used- it was so hard to work in! If/when we do another swap I'll definitely pick a book that's better to work in!
Comment: omg I'm soooo sorry!! Yours was the very first Christmas card I got, and for some reason I just realized I forgot to rate you! Thank you for the really sweet card, all the stickers inside, and the tags as well. Hope you have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year :)
Comment: I love it! I am still reading through it, but it is amazing so far. My husband admired some of the recipes you enclosed. We might make some of them. The washi tape and stickers make your journal really nice. Good job!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked! I love doing journals some seem to turn out better than others! If you ever want to do a private journal swsp just let me know ..
Comment: Thank you so much for the journal! I always enjoy hearing about y'all, I don't think you're boring at all. :) I've been so busy these past couple of months but I am working on a journal for you that I hope to get out by the end of the month!
Response: Thanks so much girl! I'm in Seattle this week and I have said many times wish I was working on a journal for you! Cause we are having a great time! Can't wait to get your journal.
Comment: Karen did an amazing job, I love the extra goodies as well. I would love to post a picture but I don't know how just yet. I really love the theme as well as how neat it was put together. Oh did I mention she put it in the most adorable package!
Response: I really enjoyed putting this together for you. Karen
Comment: Omg what a wonderful beautiful pocket letter.

Comment: Thank you for the comment! Response: "A festival of Bacon!! I am a lover of [almost] all things bacon, and it's the only thing stopping me from being a veg-head haha. I've never been, but it seems its an annual thing so I'm hoping its amazing as I think it will be lol"
Comment: Wow, thank you Karen for the HUGE Happy Halloween card you sent to me for the swap! And thank you for the stickers. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween, we did as Florida had cool down for the night & the weekend. Perfect weather for trick - or - treaters! Lovely weekend for going out. Happy November!
Comment: Thank you so much for swapping with me again! :) I love your journals and reading about your days, trips, etc! I'm behind on letters but I need to catch up and get one out to you as well! Maybe in the new year we can do a catch up with each other journal, though maybe not in the beast of a book. lol That was an intimidating book!! ;)
Response: Yes let's do a catch up journal! Yes the beast of the book got overwhelming to me. Am so glad you enjoyed! I am still looking at your wonderful journal you made for me!
Comment: Thank you for the fantastic journal. I had so much fun reading it and following your month. I was very caught up in your life. It was very enjoyable for me to read all about your daily activities and I will be trying all of the recipes that you included for me. Thank you also for all of the extras that you included. I can use all of them in my journals and smash books. This was a great swap. I loved it.
Comment: Thank you for the great note and teas. I can totally understand wanting to be more organized,, I could use that also. I would love to have blog but have no idea how to go about it., i think just life can be full of adventures,, thank you!
Comment: Third time lucky!!! Thanks so much for the lovely letter, I will reply I'm just behind in swaps due to my accident (so asking for a little patience all around!) But with it being third time lucky it needs a reply that it will get! And I was (overly) delighted with the hot chocolate as well! I never knew Land O Lakes made it! That's changed since I left home! And its been forever since I've seen that Indian girl, was trying to explain it to the other half (using online photos) but this was a much tastier way to explain! Thanks so much for a lovely packet, it really brightened up a very dark week! :)
**EDIT** - I recieved ANOTHER one of your letters and hot chocolates! You really are a dear! Wish I could give you another star for your efforts but this is the best I can do! So I shall make a song and dance of your hard efforts here publicly! Wahoo! La la la la all while spinning in circles with all your vast array of delicious hot chocolates around me!
Response: Am glad you finally got a envelope! Your too sweet and thank you so very much.
Comment: WOW Karen- just seeing your package in the mail made my day! It was so pretty! I've only just been able to flip so far but already I am loving it! You put so much work into it, one heart isn't enough! PS I have one of these book sitting in my closet and it's been my goal for awhile to actually fill one! Any time you'd like to swap again, I'll be doing so! :)
Response: Yea! It got there so fast. I enjoyed doing this journal swap with you. Just say the word and we will do another journal swap. I had that book but hadn't used it and thought it would be perfect for our swap. I normally use a composition book for my journals.
Comment: Thank you for the card!! I loved that you put stickers & how you put the name tag in front. Thank you for the gift tags too. I can't wait to use them, but I kind of don't want to because they're so pretty! lol :-)
Response: I really enjoyed making them "cutesy". Have a great holiday!!

Comment: Hi Karen, I loved the journal you put together for me, it was fun getting to know you! I started mine the same way you did and then had to really kick it into gear after getting the reminder email in November. Thanks for the extras tucked in here and there - nice surprises. Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family.

Comment: Brilliant, thanks for the beautiful journal! I have tons of new recipes to try (they sounds so yummy)
I do have to ask what you used to do the painting/spritzing on the pages? It's a lovely effect :)
Comment: This must have been one of the bulgingest envelopes I've received yet. Karen, you must have spent WAAAY beyond the swap requirements to send so much stuff. Did you make the coasters? They are so sweet and cheerful coloured, and will fit my living room well (pale blue couch and beige walls) I've had a heck of a week so will definitely enjoy destressing in the tub. And oh yummy! Such sweet treat gingerbread stamps. And oh how kind. I love love love the faith, rejoice, hope, and other Christian themed stamps. There was more in the envie than that, but I guess you've picked up on the fact that I like it so I'll stop there!
Comment: thanks for the mask and the extras.. i tried the mask before this and loved it.. thanks for sending :) i also enjoyed reading your letter.. i will write back when i have the time later~ have a nice day! hugs.
Response: Thanks for the great rating! Let's do another swap soon!
Comment: I don't even know where to start lol, Your journal is so amazing, I loved it! the treasures left me speechless, I wish i could give you more then one heart, this was very well done, just like the first journal I ever got from you! :D THANK YOU!! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Am so glad you liked it! I had fun doing this journal. Have a great swap bot week!!
Comment: What a lovely little envie of goodies! I really liked the little tags and cards (some of which my mum stole off with - so sneaky!); but most of all, I was absolutely stoked with the Native American 'founding fathers' postcard (and totally agree with what it's about) - it's so easy for drawings to look kind of off or cheap but the ones on that postcard were so well done! I don't even collect postcards, but that beauty is going right up on my wall next to my Finnish and wolf ones (ok so I guess I do collect some.. lol). Thanks so much for that absolute gem! :D
Response: Am so glad you enjoyed the goodies I sent to you! Have a great week!!
Comment: Thank you for the journal. I really enjoyed reading through it. I was thinking that you all sounded familiar to me. Went through my old journals, and I've received one from you before. :) It was nice having the update.

Response: Am so glad you liked the package. I bought me a revlon lipstick in Dark Dark purple. Love it!! The elf brushes are really good for the price. I am going to try to do make up swap at least once a month. I love make~up! Have a great swap bot week!!

Response: It won't take long and you will have lots of postcards! They are so addicting to collect. Have a great week and thanks for the wonderful rating!
Comment: Karen, Thanks so much for such a fun little package! I enjoyed reading your letter as well. I loved everything. The little gloss and glitter are ADORABLE (i'm a sucker for little things!), I have never tried purple mascara so I ran to the bathroom to try it on and it looks SOO cool!!! The little manicure set is SUPER cute! I already have big nail clippers and tweezers that stay in the bathroom so this is PERFECT to keep in my purse. I love the little girly case it comes in too. I just love all of the cute touches to this package :) Thanks again!

Comment: Loved it all! Thank you so much! This was my first swap through swap bot, and I thought that my partner was who would send me something, and I really do need to fill out a make up section of my profile! But the blush color is awesome, and so I thank you again!
Response: I was just guessing and sent what I liked. This was a fun swap to do. Be sure and join the next swap in the series! Thanks so much!!

Such a great surprise!! I keep those types of bracelets either in the car or in my purse in case I forget to put jewelry on - which is more often than not - LOL! Thank you sooooo very much. You deserve more than one heart! Joyce

Response: If you ever want to do another swap just let me know. It was fun. Wish I could have found the bigger ariheads around here.
Comment: Got your package today -- thanks ever so much! Would you believe my husband and I just listened to Fearless Fourteen on a recent road trip, but I haven't read Lean Mean Thirteen Yet! And the title of Dead Men Don't Crochet is definitely intriguing. I may not use the crochet patterns (arthritis is making that a little difficult) but I will try the recipes and the friend who gets books after I read them crochets a lot, so that is a double winner. And the PC is the cherry on top of the sundae! Thanks so much!
Response: Am so glad you hadn't read the Lean Mean Thirteen yet..Enjoy both books! Karen
Comment: I love your card ! And how sweet of you to read through my profile first and see that I don't drink tea. I LOVE lemonade, can't wait to use the sachet you gave me. You are lovely, thank you. PS: Your niece has a lovely name ! ;)
Comment: Thanks! A lot of fun surprises. They're not all "me," but that's the whole point! I especially liked the greeting card (from a New Hampshire! company! I love New Hampshire) and the flower pen.
Response: Thanks for the rating. I just wished I had done a better job on getting some of your likes! Have a great swap bot week
Comment: What a wonderful selection of buttons! I love them all <3 Was very thoughtful. My collection isn't that big either. I have half a mason jar full of vintage and a few baby food jars of colored and novelty. So this will be such a nice addition to what I have collected. If only my mother could find the lost cigar box of my grandmothers buttons grr! You can never ever have too many ;). Very kind of you to send striped fabric and tea as well! I love to use stripes for legs on dolls. Button fairies are a neat idea too show off those cool buttons and sometimes I chop off the back and glue them on things. I use them for dolls and crocheted things too. Other than that I just love to collect them and look at them lol! Thank you so much!
Response: I would love to find some vintage buttons...maybe this summer I will go button hunting:) I enjoy looking at my buttons...Makes Luther crazy when I sit at the table going thru them. Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: I loved your beautiful card from Tree Free Greetings. They are one of my first choices in card companies. I'm just about to have the mint tea that you sent. The chinese proverb is so right on for spring. Thanks for an uplifting swap.
Response: Thanks for the kind words:) I love mint anything!
Comment: Thank you so much Karen- great stuff! And you saying you'd go into work at 3:30am- I have a job in the summer that I get off at around the same time. Either way those are some crazy hours! Thanks again, Liz
Comment: Thank you so much for all the stickers you sent Addison. I am so sorry for the delay in rating you. She is a sticker crazy kid. I think at this time it is her favorite thing. That and rubber stamps.
Response: Thanks for rating! I also love stickers,but not near like my grandma does.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package! The mint tea is wonderful, and I am very much looking forward to the pomegranate. The card is beautiful, and the purple glitter ink just rocks! Thank you for a wonderful swap!!
Response: I love mint tea! Am glad you liked the package I put together for you!!
Comment: I really wish there were more hearts to give you. You organized this swap so well and sent so many extras! I love the yellow camera button and I love that blue butterfly one. You sent such an eclectic mix and really got a hold of what I like. I also really enjoyed your long note. Thank you so much. It helped my day out with a smile. :)
Response: Am so glad you liked what I picked out for you! When I read your profile and it listed buttons and then your colors I felt like I couldn't go wrong!
I am so very sorry for not rating you until now. Work got some busy for me near Thanksgiving until this week. Not a good reason for making you wait. :(
Thank you so very much for your kindness. The postcard, teas, buttons, fabirc samples, Gingerbread 3D stickers, so cute and fun was your stuffed envelope. It made me smile..and still does. Now, I have time to create with them.
Have a great week
Response: I never seem to worry about ratings..I just love getting mail. Thanks so much for rating!
Comment: Thanks so much for the pretty envelope FULL of goodies! You totally nailed me with the spiral paper clips - I LOVE them! The notecard is so pretty and really like the LA map card - will keep it, not mail it to anyone!;) Thanks also for the recipe cards. I most enjoyed the card from you with a nice letter - a PERFECT "Mailbox Filler" - thank you so much!
Response: I don't send out a lot of my neat paper clips. When I read your profile I knew you would like them. Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: thanks for the card it is fun looking...also thanks for sharing your troubles, i am glad you had something to keep you busy and just happened to have some cards with you :) have a great start to your 2010

Comment: Thank you very much for the very cute card and for the tea. I've never tried that flavor before and it came just in time as it is going to be cold and raining tomorrow. I'm taking it to work with me :)
Have a very Merry Christmas
Comment: I'm sorry it took so long for me to rate. Your dotee is very cute, especially since it's your first! You should see my first, it is awful! Please keep going, you have a very bright dotee future, I know!

Response: Am so glad you liked what I picked out for you! Happy Holidays! Thanks for the great rating!!
Comment: Thank you for ALL the teas. I was so happy you included a letter. I enjoyed reading about you. I might check out the book you mentioned. Let me know how it is once you have finished reading it. Receiving your note made me realize this is one of the reasons I joined swap-bot to hear from others. :)
Response: Am so glad you liked the letter and the teas!
Comment: i loved the sticker you sent. i was sad too when my kids had to stop trick or treating. my oldest was taller than me at the age of 10 and people actually gave her a hard time, saying she was too big to go out. i do hope your sons have a good time and hope you get some rest. denise
Response: We love to trick or treat! I am sure this will be Trevors last year to go. Since we go to friends and family they won't give the guys a hard time. Living in a small community is good for that kind of stuff! Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: I loved all the pinkness you sent. The letter set was adorable, so was the ribbon. I really liked the pink ribbon chip clips. I've never seen ones like that before. Many thanks and hearts to you!
Response: am so glad you liked your package.
Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: OMG thank you for the cute cards and the wonderful butterfly beads they are so nice and pretty!!! Good luck on your dotee! That is one thing i have not tried yet...i was reading a tutorial on how to make it and it confused me hahaha lol...thanks again and take care!!
Response: Thanks for the heart and rating! Am glad you liked what I sent you!
Comment: Thanks for the reading log. I've read the second book that concerns the Mermaid Fred, but I don't remember the name. Maybe I'll get around to reading the first now that I know someone else liked it. : ) Thanks also for the postcards.
Comment: OMG! What a WONDERFUL journal! I can tell you've put your heart and soul into this. Thank you for all the extras as well. I'd give you triple hearts if I could! I've enjoyed the teas, used the note cards, given the twins the stickers, and even made a reversible purse with the fabric you'd sent! As Yoda would say, "Amazing swapper you are!"
Response: Am so glad your enjoying it! It was a roller coaster ride when I was making it emotionally!
Comment: Wow! What a wonderful package! Everything in it is great! I really needed that little box to organize to. You deserve many more hearts then one. I felt like a kid at Christmas. Thank you so much.
Response: Am glad you liked it! Thanks for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Karen! You are a sweet heart!! You sent me so many wonderful teas to try! When I opened my envie the aroma of passion fruit, guava lemon and orange filled the room! TY so much for sending such great tea!
Comment: What a fabulous package...I wish I could give alot of hearts...What fun things you found...the zebra button are cute -of course I like the fabric and wow the zippered pouch and bath stuff- thank you for spoiling me!!!!!!
Comment: Karen - thanks so much for the great package! I love the fabric. It can be used for so many projects! The extras are really appreciated. I can't wait to use the magnetic tape measure. I'm always losing them. This one won't get lost. Yeah!!!
Comment: Wow, I absolutely love the package you sent! I was going to put it up and not open it until my birthday, but my daughter picked up the mail... eek! Thankfully, she thought that it was a package full of bath stuff with "some sort of purple bath thingy". Whew! I can't wait to swap with you again, I wish that I could give you extra hearts!!!
Response: Am so glad you liked your package! I put in items that I liked! Should have done myself one at the same time. LOL!!
Comment: Thank you for the ugly postcard plus one... I really love Halloween things and the goosebumps was very cute, the dreary one is not ugly, just kind of sad.
I love quilting, I seem to have a few projects going at any given time. Now with this site, I am branching out into all sorts of crazy things :)
I love quilting
Comment: this swap met the required swap equirements but you were supposed to make 2 for me which you did and the rest of the fbs you werent supposed to send me blank fbs.. you were to make them for anyone else.. but since u are new to making fbs i will let it slide this time
Response: I am sorry about that. When I was reading the requirements and it said established or new I thought it meant new as in blank. I would be more than happy to resend ones with info in them, I don't want to be a bad swapper.
Comment: What timely embellishments - they are already on cards! As a Tulane grad I'm actually very fond of gator, especially in gumbo. So I may put some gator recipes in my new cookbook ...
Response: I was hoping you would like your package. I really liked the cookbook scrap items. I have only had fried gator. Bet it is good in gumbo. La. Has been my home away from home since Sept. Anyways. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you! You make nice FBs. The only suggestion I have is to use less pages in each (maybe 2-3), because they will never fill up, but you did write to send home by a certain date, which is really good. Hopefully you will get a couple back! :]
Response: Thanks I thought I was adding to many pages so at least now I will cut way back, I wasn't sure if I was even making them right. Lol!
Comment: I got 2 packages today and when my husband saw me open them, he said he understood why I was addicted to swap-bot. Your package was full of goodies and I love every single one of them! Thank you so much for being a great swapper. I'll be replying soon!
Response: Thank you! I am glad you liked what I had picked out to send to you.
