Comment: Mail date issues as well as content did not meet swap guidelines. Much of the artwork on pages simply large stickers. Pretty journal cover overall disappointed in contents.
Response: I'm sorry you are disappointed with the swap, but I wish you had messaged me to let me know before rating me a 3. Maybe I could have done something to fix it for you. I know I was late sending. I messaged you and let you know ahead of time it was going to be late. Something happened that I had no way of preventing. I've had partners before that let me know the swap was going to be late and I try my best to be as understanding as possible. I am confused about you saying most of the pages had large stickers on them? I did decorate the outside and inside with stickers but my journal included pictures of places I've traveled recently, collages, a picture of the cake I made for Easter, multiple journal entries & images I printed online. I also tried to use as much blue as possible because you said that's what you liked on your profile. I also included 3 sheets of homemade address labels for you. My journal may have disappointed you, but this rating disappoints me too because it definitely was more than just large stickers on the pages. I've been on Swap Bot for almost 7 years & I have never had a problem with any of my swaps.
Comment: I loved your letter and I loved this swap! I hope you host this again sometime. Your letter is going in my "need to respond" pile because there is just too much I want to commiserate with you on! It might take me a (long) while, but I'll be getting back to you.
Comment: I enjoyed reading your answer and found myself laughing about some things we have in common. After I reading it, I found myself thinking that you and I would probably get along pretty well. lol Thanks for sharing.
Comment: thank you for the long and very informative letter. I will sit down and write you back this weekend.. and your handwriting was not bad at all.. wait till you see mine lol. I think hand writing is much more personal no matter what it looks like. Thank you again. and I will get right back to you! :)
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! I can't wait to get your letter. Have a good weekend. :))
Comment: Thank you so much for the great quote. I was reading through my profile comments and yours was EXACTLY what I needed to read. I had a really bad day emotionally and I was beating myself up about it. I read that and was very comforted. Thank you so much :) Happy Swapping!
Comment: Sorry for the late rating --I didn't realize I deleted all 3 surveys! I like your answer to the Victoria's Secret question. I kind of hope she IS a really ugly man... I guess your wedding is coming up then too soon?? Congrats!
Comment: I can understand wanting to move to the big city, but Attapulgus sounds like a place I could live! California was very cool, but I also loved Maryland, and of course, my heart lives in Indiana. But California was really a beautiful place - quite expensive now, though. I lived there from 1968 to 1971 and again from 1974 to 1976, and it was so much less expensive to live there then. The house my parents lived in (my first time there), they bought it for about $35000, and now it's worth about half a million dollars! The same house! Thanks for the comments!
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the lovely comment! I always hope I am not boring folks, but I just have to write now and again! LOL! Maybe I should do my own journal, as I do not at this point! TY so much for the lovely comment about our family as well! I feel blessed to have such good sons! They have their moments of not so good as well, but don't we all! LOL! I hope we are swap partners again at some point! Hugs and Happy Swpaping! ;)
Comment: Absolutely darling recipe and song. Thank you! (Sorry to be late rating--thought I'd done it, just got the other recipe & song, and in the process of rating that swap saw I hadn't rated you yet!)
