Comment: Merry Christmas! It's the time to be giving, and since you sent on the 13th, not the 7th, I am giving you a 5. I am being generous but, please remember to contact your coordinator and the person you are swapping with that you will be late in mailing. Other people may not be so nice!!
Response: You are so right. I totally spaced this swap and I do appreciate that you gave me a 5. Thank you for that. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Comment: Thanks for the card and palo santo chips!!
Response: I wanted to send you more palo santo chips but I was having a hard time cutting the wood. Anyway, I love Palo Santo. I carry the sticks in my car and smudge myself when I get irritable with other drivers. LOL. Merry Christmas.
Comment: This is a beautiful card, made all the more lovely by your Christmas tree artwork/quote! So wonderful, I almost thought it was part of the card, at first! Thanks for the great dog postcard, too - merry Christmas!
Response: Thanks for noticing. I actually copied it from the internet so it's not completely original but it was fun to do. Have a wonderful Christmas and be safe if you celebrate on New Year's Eve.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome notecard and Christmas card you sent. Love them both. Just like a true Christmas scene. Know what you mean about the cold. I'm ready to break out the gloves, scarves, hats, whole 9 yards. lol Happy Holidays, Sandy
Response: It rained all day yesterday. I kept all warm and snuggly under my hooded poncho. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Comment: Very nice sparkly card! Thanks for extra notecard-very cute! Good luck on your lottery tickets and have a happy holiday!
Response: Thanks Georgia, I still haven't checked my tickets yet. For all we know, I could be sitting on millions of dollars. :) Wouldn't that be a merry christmas? Happy holidays to you with many blessings.
Comment: I just love the cute card you sent.Thank you. I also love the note card you included.Thank you.
Response: I'm glad you like it. I do my best to never send repeats. I still have my list of swaps from last year and I always write which card I send so that my partner always gets a fresh one. Merry Christmas.
Comment: What?! Oh my goodness, JarieLyn, you outdid yourself with this swap; you wrote about Thanksgiving and your upcoming plans, you spent time decorating the envelope and you included some wonderful postage stamps! Thanks a million, billion, trillion!!
Response: Thanks for the enthusiastic comment. I love Christmas and personalizing each one makes me happy. It took me probably just over 3 hours to fill out 20 Christmas cards. I do my best to write something different in every card. I'm glad you liked the swap. Merry Christmas.
Comment: JrieLyn, thank you for the postcard. I am glad we are able to voice our opinions. "Clinton for President", we cannot fail. We have to have someone with the knowledge of how our country is run. Has Trump been in any political office?
Response: So glad we are still able to voice our individual opinions. I don't like talking politics so I will just leave it at that. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for a great set of Postcards that you sent for this swap. I am so glad you did not want them! LOL Thank you also for picking some from my profile. I do appreciate that and also thank you so much for the extras you sent. It is hard pick a favorite as they are all great additions to my collection
Response: It makes me happy that you like all the cards I chose for you. It really does take me about an hour to complete one swap because I do my best to pick the right cards for each partner. It's hit and miss sometimes but I really do get excited when I get it right. Have a beautiful Sunday.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful cards -- I sent them in swaps the same day I received them :) -- and kind note on cheery turquoise stationery. Summer is fast-approaching here; the temperatures are slowly climbing and intermittent showers have begun. Hope you have a good weekend with people who make you smile!
Response: You're welcome. I have lots of wonderful people who make me smile. Every day is a fabulous day in my life. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow, thanks for a great swap, JarieLyn! Loved the envelope, Vegas themed tape, old stamps (where did you get them?), and such great cards with extras to boot! My profile really needs an update, though my older son is still in the Army, now based here thankfully. He and my new daughter-in-law got married 3/9 in Vegas at the Little Chapel of the Flowers-we had a blast during our 3 days in Vegas. Our Maddy girl is 9 months old now and so cute-she's such a sweetie! thanks again!
Response: Hi Carol, It makes me so happy that you liked this swap. I get my stamps from Ebay. So sweet, Maddy sounds adorable. Glad things are going well for you. Have a beautiful weekend and thank you for the rating.
Comment: Hi JarieLyn! Got your cards today and LOVE them! I guessed the mosaic was a Boston Terrier before I looked and of course my fav is the kitty! Hubby loves the marvel Comics pc and the b/w photo is just so sweet. Thanks for choosing so thoughtfully!
Response: You're welcome. It makes me happy when the recipient likes the cards I choose especially for them. Thank you for the heart. Happy swapping!
Comment: OH MY GOSH. Thank you for the variety that you sent. The glitter one was pretty funny- I really love the kitty ones! All were pretty great actually.

Made my day.

Comment: Hi JarieLyn, thank you for the cool medicine men cards plus the extra card and your lovely note. And thank you for sending a fun envie with your drawing on it! What a lovely pic of you and Sasha, thank you for sharing it with me! That is certainly a coincidence, Sasha for you and Asha for me. It sounds like we have a common thread in our love of our canine girls and in missing them. Like you, I still miss my girl and it is going on three years now. I'd be happy to do exchanges with you any time should you have an interest. Take care, Cynthia
Response: Thank you Cynthia. I think my husband may be getting closer to wanting another dog. I sure hope so. Have a geat night.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! My own personal complaint involved grocery stores too! Lol - about how people have to stop right in the doorway on their way out to check their cell, rummage for keys, etc. The shopping carriage would have been my #2 :)
Response: I agree with you about people stopping in the doorway and/or in the middle of the aisle without concern about others needing to get by. It happened to us at Costco today, and it was so packed. Ugh! Thanks for the rating and have a great night.
Comment: Ha! I hear ya about the reason you like these swaps - I agree. Anyway -- Thank you much - I love these card - They are so different and very interesting - and - Thanks for the extra - and - I Love how you made and deco'd the envelope - Amazing . Thanks for a great swap - Happy day to you.

Comment: Thanks for not just finding J-O-Y cards, but trying to fit my profile, too! You did great and thanks for extras. The Yosemite card is my favorite - I have photo cards from that wonderful place but love this painting!
Response: I love the Yosemite card too. I went there last year with my camera club and it was gorgeous. We stayed near Mono Lake which was also very interesting. Have a great day and thanks for the heart rating.
Comment: Thank you SO very much for the awesome envelope, many cool stamps on the envie and then, the inside was filled with a variety of wonderful postcards that look interesting :D The notecard is too beautiful and the content is just so sweet ðŸ’• You even include 5 washi tape samples which is very much appreciated ðŸ’— Wish I could give you many hearts because you surely has surprise me more than I can imagine ;)
Response: Awwww, thank you. I really do enjoy putting effort into my swaps. I'm glad you liked the package.Have an awesome day filled with love and laughter.
Comment: LOVE them all! Thanks you very much for the extra one!
Response: I'm so relieved. I thought I was going to have to re-send. The envelope already came back to me once. I apologize for it taking so long to get to you. Thank you for the heart and for having patience in receiving this swap.
Comment: Great lot of postcards! Glad you are enjoying beautiful weather. Today, I told my son that it was too nice to be inside. I wanted him to run around and burn some energy. He brought a Lego set outside! At least he enjoyed the sunshine!
Response: I'm glad your son got out into nature. It's so hard to get kids to play outside theses days. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: As soon as I saw the nicely decorated envelope in my mailbox, it made me smile and say, finally - someone read my profile and saw that I don't care for boring white envelopes. That was happy and heart worthy just as is. Then I opened it up and saw all the happy goodies inside - the lovely letter, nice tapes!, and the unused postage. Thank you for making it a very, very happy mail day for me!! :) More hearts to you if I could.
Response: I'm glad my envelope made you smile and that you enjoyed the contents. Thanks for the great rating. Have a wonderful night.
Comment: Hi, JarieLyn! Thank you so much for everything. I enjoyed every bit, even the metallic purple envelope. I have never seen an envelope like it before. By the washi you sent me, I can tell you thoroughly read through my profile. I really appreciate that. You are very generous for sending me extras. Have a wonderful day!
Response: Hi Irish, I'm glad you appreciate the effort I made to send you something you would enjoy receiving, and I'm happy that you actually like what I sent you. Thank you for the heart. It is greatly appreciated as well.
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun variety of postcards :D Even if there are touristy cards, they are a wonderful addition and fit with the themes that I collect :) The envelope is really beautiful and I'm so happy to see a lot of wonderful stamps on the envie ðŸ’• The teas are very much appreciated too â™¥ It's a pleasure to get you as my partner :) Oh, the note with teddy bear is too cute! Wish I could buy it here >.<
Response: I'm really glad you like the variety of postcards and the envelope. I do enjoy pouring my heart into the swaps. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I want them! Thank You! ðŸ˜Š Did you make the guitar card?? Stunning! <3
Response: You[re welcome. Yes, I took the photograph of the guitars while on vacation in San Antonio, TX and then I had them professionally printed. Thanks for the heart and I'm glad you like the postcards.
Comment: JarieLyn, what a creative way to present the swap. Love it. Gave me ideas for another project. Yes, every month has it's share of ups and downs. Ditto regarding the shopping cards in the middle of parking lots ;)
Response: I'm glad I inspired you. Thanks for the rating. Have a wonderful day.
Comment: Thank you for the washi tape! I especially loved your poetry and art work. Is there a way I can purchase more postcards from you?
Response: Hi NIcole, I'm so happy you like my original postcard. I sell my postcards via my ETSY shop. Currently, I have two original pc's listed, the one I sent you and another one that showcases my photography. Other than that, I have grab bag postcards (vintage and modern) for sale. I plan to put more original postcards up for sale in the near future. Thank you so much for your interest and for the heart rating. Have a fabulous evening.
Comment: Hello JarieLyn,
Thank you for the 6 lengths of washi tape you sent me for this swap. They are all new to me. I look forward to using your pieces of washi tapes as part of future projects. Thank you also for the Elvis postcard as well. it will be a nice addition to my Postcard Collection. Happy new Year!
Response: I'm so glad that the washi samples I sent are new to you. Happy New Year to you as well and thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thanks for the Nevada postcard and for sharing so much information about yourself. I had to look up Reiki Practitioner; first I've heard of it. I also love donuts, especially Krispy Kreme glazed.
Response: I like maple bars......yummy. I thank you for the rating and I wish you a wonderful day.
Comment: LOVED the Norman Rockwell card and the strangest thing is, I got the same card from another person on the very same day! What are the odds?!
Your facts are fascinating! Reiki and private investigator? Love!
Response: How funny that you received the two of the Norman Rockwell cards the same day. I call that synchronicity. :) I'm so happy that you enjoyed my facts. Have a nice day.
Comment: Thanks for the card, I loved the PCs you tucked in. I also want a hand drum or djembe, but they are REALLY expensive. I have no clue how many PCs I have in my collection, but I love collecting them, they are my favorite thing to collect and send out.
Response: Glad you like the pc's. Well, I got a medium size drum for Christmas from my sister. I love it. Hope you had a great Christmas. Wishing you a very prosperous new year.
Comment: JarieLyn, thank you for the card an state map postcard Hope you have a great vacation with your sister. Have fun in the snow. It is 77 degrees at 3 o'clock here. Shirley
Response: Wow, I figured it would be a lot colder in NC. This morning at 8:00 it was 47 degrees here and it snowed in the mountains last night so we have a pretty view now. Thank you for the well wishes. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Hello again! I hope that you had a good time at your christmas party! I have my first on December 16th. It should be a blast for sure! Merry Xmas friend!
Response: The party was enjoyable. We have another one on the 12th which will no doubt be more fun than the previous one. We do white elephant gifts....those can get pretty funny. Have fun at your party. Merry Xmas to you as well. :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute card and bag tags! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving and are enjoying the movies.... I'm trying to catch the newest Murder She Baked, out of love for the books. Merry Christmas!
Response: I haven't seen the newest Murder She Baked, but I'm recording the movies. Hope you're enjoying the season so far.
Comment: Thank you for the letter. I really enjoyed reading it. You didn't indicate whether you are looking for a pen pal. I'd love to write back...and the note card is WAY too cute to use!! Merry Christmas!
Response: Hope you're having a great birthday. I'm open to new pen pals. I love to write letters as well as receive them. Thanks. Merry Christmas.
Comment: What a sweet teddy bear card. Thanks for the extras! Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Response: I went to just about every store you can think of to find a Teddy bear on a card- Walmart, K-Mart, Target, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Dollar Store and I finally found these cute Teddy Bear cards at CVS. I was stressed for awhile thinking I wasn't going to be able to fulfill this swap. Haha. :) Glad I didn't give up. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Comment: Very pretty card! Loved the sticker labels inside. I spent the day shopping and now I'm catching up on swap-bot opening mail and addressing envelopes! I'm sitting your card out on display
Response: I'm glad you like it. I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet. Yikes! I'm starting to feel a bit stressed. Merry Christmas to you.
Comment: What a small world that your brother lives in this town! Have a nice time in, probably warm, Cali :-) Thank you so much for the fabulous Christmas card - I just love it . - and - the extras - which I really need. Thanks again for everything. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you .
Response: You're welcome. Wishing you a happy new year as well.
Comment: Yours was a perfect candy cane card! I really appreciate the treat bags in side with the gift tags. The way you decorated the envelope with pieces of wrapping paper was very creative. I have never thought to order Thanksgiving dinner from a restaurant: that sounds delightful.
Response: I'm glad you're pleased with the card I sent. Also, you should definitely try a holiday feast from a restaurant. It takes the stress out of holiday cooking. :) Oh, I just don't recommend Marie Calendar's. Mimi's is good. Happy Holidays to you. Ho, Ho, Ho!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely holiday card! After reading about your Christmas movie marathon :) I'm now wondering which movies you would recommend that are your favourites? Warm holiday wishes for you!
Response: My favorite classic Christmas movie is, It's a Wonderful LIfe. The one's on Hallmark Channel are TV movies and I like them all. Ben Affleck did a movie back in 2004 called Surviving Christmas and I really like that one. I also like Family Man starring Nicholas Cage. Happy Holidays to you and thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely card and the wrapping paper! I hope that you had a wonderful anniversary dinner!
Response: We had a nice dinner on our anniversary, but then we had a bowling event next night with the company my husband works for and as we were leaving the bowling alley which is in the casino we walked by a bar that had a live band playing. My husband led me inside and we had a really good time dancing. It was the best night I've had in a very long time. The band turned out to be Michael Grimm who was a winner on America's Got Talent.
Comment: Thank you for the card and note. Your thanksgiving was a lot like mine. Just the two of us where I cooked and my husband was in the garage doing whatever. My daughter who lives in Texas was in the hospital but I couldn't be there with her. She has severe Crohn's disease and had 3 intestinal blockages and they had to pump her stomach 3 times. But she is better now and went home the day after thanksgiving. Yes, we are very thankful.
Response: I'm glad to hear that your daughter is better and that she is home now. I can't imagine what it's like spending a holiday in the hospital. Thank God for our blessings. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Hi JarieLyn! TY for the lovely Christmas card, tags, and share! Our Thanksgiving was fun, sort of sad too, as our oldest and our sweet DIL are overseas & could not join us, but they did FaceTime with us, so that helped!! Always make way too much food, but the youngest was happy as he is planning on taking some back to school, so it will not go to waste! LOL! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well! Merry Christmas to you and yours! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Hi Vicky, thanks for the detailed comment. It was just my husband and me for Thanksgiving but it was nice. Glad you got to facetime with your oldest. Have a great night and enjoy the season of Christmas.
Comment: Thank you for your sweet note! I miss Margo so much! I did get another cat just this past Saturday. Her name is Precious, and I know that she is a gift from the Lord! I m very thankful! Happy Anniversary, and have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Response: Oh, I'm so happy to hear that you got another cat. She went to the right home. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.
Comment: I love my swap-what a great idea to turn it into a book. What kind of iridescent ink did you use for the swap? The little surprise was fun as well as the thoughtful note. That gives me ideas for future swaps. Wish I could give more hearts.
Comment: Thank you for the great card and extras. Sounds like you have had some really great times already this year. I love the angel picture on the postcard you sent. So very pretty. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Response: Happy New year and thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card & goodies! I've been to Las Vegas once. It sounds like it would be wonderful during Christmas! We stayed at MGM but one of my favorites was the Bellagio!
Response: Yes, I love it here. And if we want snow, we just drive up to Mt. charleston which is only a 30 minute to 40 minute drive. We get the best of both worlds. Thanks for the heart. Merry Christmas to you.
Comment: Awesome postcards!! - Super thanks - Loved the Santa tag and bag - That is too adorable. Your in-laws live up here ? -- I might've passed them on the street - Small world! Thanks again for the most amazing post-cards and I do wish you a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks again for everything.
Response: Thank you so much for re-rating me. I'm sorry you had to wait so long for the resend. Merry Christmas to you and a most fabulous new year. Thanks for the heart. I really do appreciate it.
Comment: Your note makes me remember that I still need to find time to enjoy the beautiful lights and displays that the great people around town put so much time and effort into. Hoping I'll be able to talk my boyfriend into a trip down Peacock Lane, this year. Merry Christmas, Jarie Lyn!
Response: Merry Christmas to you as well. Hope you get to see the magic of Christmas. :) Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi JarieLyn. Thank you so much for all of the fun extras and your letter. I'm happy you looked up the things you had questions about in my profile. I just felt the need to clarify for some reason and now I'll be doing the same on my profile (what I had written isn't quite accurate!). All of the stuff that's shown as being "BDSM" isn't my bag either, for the most. We're really just a more traditional household with my male partner taking the lead and making the decisions. More of a 1950's style household. :) I would love to talk to you more sometime about your work with angel card reading and such. All of that intrigues me so. I'm not much of an empathâ€¦ Thanks again. You made my day. <3
Comment: Hi, I received my swap! AMAZING! Not only did you send the postcards, but a notecard and stickers as well! I really need to hide them from my girls, they always take them, lol! Thank you for a great swap! Have a nice day! :)
Response: I'm so happy that you were pleased with the swap. Have a great Easter and thank you for the rating.
Comment: Hello JarieLyn, first of all ... you have such a beautiful name and your handwriting is so neat! Second, and be it the most important, how can I ever thank you enough for all the awesome notecards you sent me :) I really appreciate your choices, seems you took a really good look unto my profile, thank you so much. This was a perfect swap <3 Kind greetings, Aline
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you like all the cards I chose. I appreciate the rating with the heart. Have a wonderful day. I'm all smiles now.
Comment: Those were the most wonderful note cards and thank you for reading my profile. I loved the kitty note card and matching stationary. They are so nice I hate to use them. Thanks for making my day. God Bless......=)
Response: Love and light to you! Thanks for the heart and I'm really glad you liked the kitty notecard and stationery. (i think it's vintage)
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful swap! I love all the extra bits and pieces you included to illustrate your words. I feel like I know a lot about you now! I love your faith in the Lord! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful day and thank you for the rating.
Comment: loved your envie.....and the inside contents were awesome..thank you for the extra bird cards..love them.... also i did that hoover dam tour about 3 years ago... vegas was a nightmare..too many people...lol lol lol thank you for a wonderful swap...loved the napkin entry...
Response: You are welcome. I appreciate the heart. I don't like to go down to the strip because there are so many people and it's hell trying to drive in that traffic on a weekend.
Comment: Ha-Ha-Happy New Year! Thanks so much for the card! Hope your Christmas was fantastic! I share your desire to own all the Christmas cards I see, even though I know that I do not know enough people to send them all to. We still have some from over a decade ago. Sorry for the late rating...been ill to ring in the New Year most likely as a result of the holiday stress. Hope you have a wonderful, healthy and happy 2014!
Response: Thank you so much. I hope your 2014 is off to a good start. I appreciate the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful covered bridge snow card. The red cardinal just sets it off doesn't it. And, thank you for joining several of the scavenger hunt swaps. I hope your Christmas was merry!
Response: Thank you so much. I love the scavenger hunt swaps. I had a great Christmas this year. I hope you have a very safe and happy new year's eve and thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for joining this swap and sending the sweet snow person card, a nice message, and the inserts, too. The vintage postcard with trees full of butterflies is amazing! Happy Swapping in 2014!
Comment: Merry Christmas, JarieLyn! I just LOVED the gorgeous glittery winter scene large Christmas card you sent to me! Gorgeous! We are similar in that we both love to watch Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies at this time of year. And I also love to hoard Christmas cards, buying them on sale everywhere especially after Christmas. You got a really great purchase getting these cards at a thrift store! Thank you again and have a beautiful Christmas day!
Response: I hope your Christmas was a merry one. Mine was awesome and I went shopping today and bought 14 boxes of Christmas cards. I had no idea I bought that many until just now when I counted them. I went to several different stores today and took advantage of the sales. Really, I'm almost ashamed of myself because I still had 6 unopened boxes of cards before I went shopping plus all the opened cards I had bought at thrift stores and estate sales. Man oh man. I hope you are not as bad as I am. Have a very Happy and safe new year's eve. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty mail art and nice selection of different teas. It was a perfect timing, I received it on the last mail day before we celebrate Christmas here :)
Response: I received your pen pal letter the same day I sent the mail art envie. It was a nice surprise because I never expected to hear from you. I will be writing you back. I'm a little behind on my pen pal letters right now but will be caught up soon. Happy Holidays to you. I hope you have a very happy new year and thank you for the rating.

Comment: Hilarious!!!! Thank you so much for the card, extras, and Santa letters. OMG, I laughed so hard!!! Very cool, thank you again. =) I like the postage stamp you also. This is the first time I've seen it. =)
Response: I'm glad you found the letters as funny as I did. Thanks for the heart. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Oh my goodness, thank you so much for all the postcards. What a wonderful surprise. I love the Three Wise Men card. It's my first one and will go above my front door. Thanks also for the stickers. Merry Christmas!
Response: I'm so glad they went to a good home. :) Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Take a woodland setting with little critters, add Santa, an evergreen, or a snowman, and you have the perfect Christmas card for me. Yours has all the elements - thank you so much! :oD
I wish I could give you more than one heart!
Response: Oh, I'm so glad I appealed to your Christmas spirit. Have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool vintage postcard :) More places should celebrate Thanksgiving, I know a lot of people who need to look at their lives and be thankful for what they have instead of whining about what they don't have.
Response: Much gratitude for your rating. Happy holidays to you. :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely card, postcards and stickers. Cool that you go to the cinema on Xmas Day. Nothing like that is open here on the 25th. I like to go 'watch' a Christmas film on the 24th December. :)

Response: Thank you. Those brownies are delicious. I had the priviledge of tasting them a couple of weeks ago. I hope you like them. :) Thanks for the awesome rating.
Comment: Thank you so much! The journal was beautiful and I could tell you spent a lot of time working to make it look that way. I loved flipping through and seeing all the different pages and you had some really interesting and difficult questions! I look forward to answering them! Thanks!
Response: Thank you so much. I wish I was a little more artistic. Enjoy! I appreciate the heart rating. :)
Comment: Hi JarieLyn, your envelope is here! All went well. Thank you so much for the nice cards & envelopes:-) And please don't think you're boring me. In fact I really, really enjoyed your letter a lot:-))

Response: Thank you so much for the rating and the heart. I know what it's like to get behind in correspondence, as you can see by how late my response is. Have a wonderful day.

Response: Thank you so much. I appreciate the heart too. Did I send you the Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burrito recipe? They are so yummy!
Comment: Thanks for the great card. Visited Vegas once in 2004. Nice place to visit but much to hot for me :) I could never live some where with no snow :)
Response: Thanks for the great rating. I could never live where it snowed all the time even though I love to visit places with snow. But who knows, if I keep having all these all flashes I just may change my mind. LOL
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! How was your walking group?
Response: Unfortunately, my husband called me right before I was walking out the door and he had locked his keys in his truck at work so I had to bring him the spare. I didn't make it back in time but I hope to try again this Thursday. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: WOW! What a great lot of ephemera! I'm going to have a lot of fun adding these goodies to my smash books! Thanks so much!
Response: Oh good. I never know what to send when it comes to ephemera. I don't know where everyone else gets all the vintage looking stuff. I'm glad you liked your package and thank you very much for the heart.

Comment: Life on the farm used to be wonderful withall the animals and fresh air, etc. but with advancing age and physical limitations it is becoming a chore. I still love all the animals, but there are days like yours that I get up & end up going back to bed.
Comment: Heart-worthy because I've never seen that $.32 "Computer Technology" stamp before...it's new to me and HUGE! :) I do like the coyote postcard very much - very similar to wolves visually. And I also loved your neat penmanship and ALL you had to share about your day...you really know how to fill up a postcard! :) Thank you, JarieLyn!
