Comment: Dawn...It is good to hear from you and so good to be swapping again after the time off for the move. Sounds like you have a lot going on...hope you get to the beach and ENJOY!! Thanks for the great "cat" cards...I think I need to get one of those hammocks to relax on in my new yard :) Hugs...Charlene
Response: Thank you, It is nice to get happy mail again. Enjoy that new yard of yours.
Comment: Thank you so much for the great picnic-themed items! The thermal bag will be used daily---in Florida I take water or iced tea with me everytime I leave the house. The basket lines will 'pretty-up' baskets I take to picnics. I have never ever seen the 3-in-1 spoon, fork, knife set. How clever. And I can never have too many recipe cards and note cards. HUGS, geri
Response: glad they will come in handy. I bought the silverware in Target.
Comment: Many thx for your lovely notecard and the tea selection. I love the green tea and the red raspberry tea !!! Yes Fall is also my favourite season. I love the colors of that season. Warm wishes !!
Comment: Thanks for the large ziplock of goodies. I used your bag to fill for my goodies iand will pass it along to my partner. I received this days ago but have been super busy at work to get on here.
Comment: Wow Dawn! I seriously cant believe how much effort you put into my kit! I love it so much, I am touched you would create something so nice for someone you dont even know. Thank you! I would give you lots more hearts if I could!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything. I wanted this swap to be special. Happy writing!
Comment: Dawn ...Thank you for the great rubber stamps. My 4 year old grandaughter fell in love with the one with the dude riding the unicycle on his hands:) She was stamping everything in sight with it!!
Comment: Dawn...sorry for your loss:( Thank you for the great recipes. I tried another pecan recipe at Christmas and it did not turn out so will have to try yours. Never heard of Irish Potato Candy but I love coconut:) I will have to give some of that away to my Irish friends for St. Pat's Day :) Thank you for participating in my swap!!!.
Comment: Dawn, I love the background stamp you sent. Looking forward to trying it out. And thank you also for the "Fall" stamps. I don't have any of those. Wish I could give you another heart.

Comment: Dawn, I wish I could give you more hearts!! Not only do I love the cross-stitched pumpkin, the background is also very well done. I really appreciate all the work you put in to this swap and am very lucky to have gotten you for a partner. I notice the apple card you put everything in supports a food bank. That is really nice.I also look forward to using the autumn stickers. Thank you for everything! I will enjoy it all and think you must be a very nice person. Happy Holidays and happy swapping! Sue
Thank you for the lovely comments. You are very welcomed. I loved doing the pumpkin.
Comment: Thank you! I've had a few lip glosses before and they were sticky and wore off really quick but this one seems to stay on nicely and it smells and tastes good so I can actually use it! I'm really curious about the gelatin dessert, I will definitely try it soon. I've never seen anything like it before. Such a practical compact package :-) I like tea with fruity flavors so I'm sure I'm going to enjoy those ones you sent. Very good choices, thanks!

Comment: Thanks for the videos...that was a great find...the last videos I had were VCR tapes...I might just try them at nap time today :)
Response: Yes, they were a great find. I saw how much you like to work out so when I saw those I thought of you. Maybe to give you a chance do exercise at home instead of the gym. Hope you can use them.
Comment: Thanks for the socks and things! The socks match one of my tennis skirts. :). Did you have trouble finding hot chocolate? I had to order mine online! Once spring comes, it is hard to find anything other than Swiss Miss. Thanks again!
Response: my local grocery store stocks the land-o-lakes flavored ones all year round. So if you need some let me know. You are very welcomed for everything. LOL didn't even know what colors to match, lucky guess.
Comment: How could I not give a heart to that little cutie pie??? Most definitely he is fluffy, cute and cuddly! In addition to being cute, your card came way sooner than I would have thought. You obviously work farther ahead than I do! A nice surprise in my mailbox on a frustrating day.
Response: I am happy the timing was terrific! Thanks, lol that one took me awhile to decide on what to do. Then I saw that cutie and said he was the one.

Response: Talk about timing then. That couldn't have worked any better. Wow, good luck with them, hope they bloom beautifully for you.
Comment: Thanks for the letter and tea! The envelope was torn (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jolly_ro/5558333038/), but it still made it to me! The letter is lovely and tea smells delicious! I will try it in the evening, because it's decaf and I can safely drink it before going to sleep! Thanks for being so considerate and sending enough tea to share:))) I'm going to write you a reply soon.
Response: so sorry it was torn by the time it got to you. You are welcome. I hope you and your sisters love it!
