Comment: Thank you so much for your lists, Monique! They are presented in such a creative way! It really feels like reading a book and i'm looking forward to exploring your answers as well as the sweet extras. Thank you also very much for your letter and the open words. Best wishes! PS: Watercolours are great fun even if you don't master them!
Comment: These really are great songs to listen to for some good cheer; I have a lot of them on a playlist for songs I play in the background while I work! (I am so sorry for the late rating - I completely missed a few early March emails!)
Comment: Thank you, Monique, for the stickers and your letter. I adore the cute succulent stickers. And thank you for sharing your worries. I wondered if the word "worry" is a bit anxiety-provoking when I read your letter and changed the question up on my profile. I do believe you will make it through with your 11-yr-old. Hormones will eventually settle. You're doing just fine! Godspeed. =]
Response: Glad you enjoyed the letter & stickers.. Sorry if my response was too honest. i know she will be fine. just where I was on the day..
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful paperclips. I love the swan and the mermaid! I use the paperclips like I would "normal" paperclips, in my checkbook, to hold coupons, tickets, etc. I have started giving them away when I send birthday or thank you cards. You are right they do end up as a collection!
Comment: Your trip this month sounds lovely, i wish you all the luck and tolerance with your family trip.
Its always amazing when all of your craft stuff organised, so i hope you enjoy the end result .
Comment: I loved receiving your Favorite Things swap! I liked that you included extra information about yourself and the reasons you had chosen each one. And thank you for inviting me to respond with my own favorites; I definitely will be sending you some happy mail with my list! Thanks for a wonderful swap!

Response: Sounds awesome to me.. Glad you enjoyed it.. Let's plan for end of January.. :)
Comment: Thanks for sharing! I keep an occasional art journal (being a graphic designer kinda forces me to exercise!) and I would love to try gratitude journal! By the way your lettering classes sound fun~

From the pumpkin painted on the envelope to the
donut notecard and all the cute fall stickers, this was over the top!! The cute little envelope to hold the fall tea bag was awesome. I can't wait to try the tea. Awesome!! Thank you
Response: Makes me so happy to hear that you enjoyed it.. IT was a watercolor day.. so I did envelopes..
Comment: Wow! Your package was amazing!! Every time I opened another package I thought, "No, this is my favorite." THEN when I realized you had made most of it I was blown away. I love the kitchen skulls. :) I wish I could give you 100 more hearts! Thank you!!!
Response: So happy you enjoyed it.. Yes, I do hand make most of the items. lots of fun.. :)
Comment: :O:O:O:O:O This was such an AMAZING GIFT!!! I felt like it was my birthday. You put so much beautiful work into this swap and I just want to tell you it is so very appreciated. I oohed and aahed over each handmade item and thoughtfully placed goodie. You're incredible! These fang-shaped clips are SO cool! The little tea holder folder is ADORABLE and this tea looks really good. And you somehow psychically knew that I love gummy candy. I love these stickers and the pad of paper and WOW!!! You've got all the hearts. Thanks so much! You're a star!
