Comment: Thanks a lot for sharing, there are some really nice things on your list. What kind of shop does your husband would like to have? Starting a ministry where you make a difference for all those mommas sounds aww there are no words for that, so thoughtful and kind.
Response: Thank you!! My husband would like to open an automotive shop. It will be different from others around with more focus on teaching and learning on taking money
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful notecard! I love how you marbled it. I've only made one Dotee doll so far, but I'd love to join another swap! It was so much fun to make. You should definitely make some with your daughter ❤
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! We had a fun time creating those!!
Comment: I miss hugs too - I am a hugger through and through! I have a bad knee and hip but a trampoline sounds fun for exercise. I wish my husband was home more - he *could* work from home but he chooses to drive the hour into work each day, sigh. Take care and be safe out there!
Response: Huggers unite!!! There's some science behind how beneficial hugs are and I'm all for it!! After 3 kiddos, I can't enjoy the trampoline as much as I would like but the fitter I get the easier it is! Maybe you could encourage your husband to work halftime at home? 🤷🏻♀️ Thank you for the heart! 😘
Comment: Thank you so much for this excerpt. I didn't know they had a love language book for children! I read the original when I was in college, what a fascinating book. Thanks for sharing, I'm going to go look for this book now!
Comment: Oh my, what a lovely package of stickers and extras I received today. Thank you sooooooooo much..I could tell that you took the time to choose just the right ones for me..I love the Snoopy one, the Love Bug one, it reminded me of when I had a VW bug many,many years ago. Funny how certain things jog our memories..I am also into Adult coloring books, so the decorated envelope..I plan on coloring it in and using it with a penpal letter. Thank you also for that...yes, it is also wonderful to be partners with another Christian..love the postcards, and sayings..You really made my day!!!!!
Response: My oldest will love knowing that you're going to reuse her decorations! I was at first against sending the snoopy one but she convinced me otherwise, I'm glad she did.
Comment: Thank you for the cool postcard and the cool round stamp. I'm surprised the round stamped one of the APC stamps, they're funny like that.
Response: I'm glad you got it & that they actually did hand stamp it. I didn't want that silly stamp that they gave me but they took me to the automated machine since they were busy & I was using my debit card. They're crazy. I told the man who helped me that if it didn't get hand canceled that I'd get in big trouble. Glad he followed through!
Comment: Thanks for the great package! Your dotee is really cool! At first I didn't think she was so naughty, until I peeked under her leaves! Nice! The serpent looks really great too, did you draw him? I also love the lip balm and nail polishes that you sent!
Response: You're so welcome! I had to put the tissue under neath so that the color wouldn't come off onto her "skin" in transit. Glad you got the hint. I figured she was the first & foremost naughty girl in history. Did something she wasn't supposed to, naughty girl. I really had a great time making her. All of the plastic bits are shrinky dinks. I got the line drawings off google so I can't take credit for those but the coloring is all mine ;-). Take good care of her!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful pages.You put so much effort into finding pages that aligned with my profile.I'm going to enjoy using those pages very much.The elephant tag using the page which tore is gorgeous.
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! Having never done a pages swap before, I had to do a bit of research on how to cut them since all the crafts I've done before it was alright if they were ripped. Glad you'll have good use for them, I'd love to see any projects you do with them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: You did such a good job on the envelopes. loved them, they are so cute. Yes I had a time with them too because I had never done them before. Hope we can keep in touch. I lave photography too. Craftybarbie
Response: So glad you like them! I. Was a bit worried ssince it was my first time. Woohoo! Hey send me a pm with your photography info,, I would love to see your work!!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I love my little dotee, she is so cute, I think I'll name her daisy-it fits, and what a pretty card. Maybe she'll bring me luck in my garden of cactii, Thank-you
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Because of this experience, I've decided to start my own dotee swap. I had a great time creating her for you, my first. Now that you mention cacti her fur could resemble that, in a way!
Comment: Thanks for sharing the awesome pictures Iâ€™m so glad they all came through the 2nd time, they were worth the wait. It is so nice to see clouds, rain, wild life and green! AZ scenery is boring!
Response: See, I disagree. Having lived in AZ for 23 years, I loved the variety in areas you could explore. Granted you dont have as many clouds & green but the wildlife is there, you just have to know where to look. Glad you enjoyed the photos!
Comment: Beautiful photographs and sounds like you had a fun time!! I'd LOVE to see that many animals whenever I've gone out anywhere, but I usually only see a squirrel or chipmunk or something. Thanks so much!
Response: Well the PacNW would be a great vacationing spot for you!
Comment: Wonderful trip you and your mother took - what a lovely lake picture and "Kiss" feeding the giraffe is very special! I love London and Rome but I'm with your mother on the wondefulness of elephants.
Response: There is something breath-taking about elephants! It was certainly a trip I will never forget!
