Comment: Lois, Your Mother sounds like a wonderful person. I really loved this swap, didn't you! When I was in Elementary school we had "May Day" at school, I can remember girls wrapping beautiful ribbons around the May Pole. Thanks for the seeds and tea that was so thoughtful of you! Lynnie
Response: Thanks!! I also remember May day at elementary...
Comment: Hey thanks so much for the card - I'm sorry for not rating earlier, I have just been so snowed under at work that I haven't even had time to sit down at a computer, but I really appreciated it, and loved the pelican stamp. Thank-you so much, and again, very sorry for the delay in rating. xoxo
Response: oh no worries! thank you very much,I understand completely.. was just worried about the mail. good luck to you!
Comment: Thank you for the notecard you sent! I love how you decorated the envelope. What an exciting time for you and your family with the graduations of your sons! And the door project that you're working on sounds like it's going to be fabulous. I would love to see what it looks like when it's done! Thanks so much for writing!
Comment: Oh Lois, thank you so much for the absolutely amazing altered journal, complete with my very favourite sunflower seeds inside. You did a wonderful job with all of it, so artful and expressive. I can tell you put your heart into it. I can not tell you how thrilled I am.
Response: THANK you sharon!!!! I am thrilled that you love it.. I was not sure,but I was happy with how it turned out. THANKS
Comment: I love all the stuff you sent me. So much vintage stuff. I allready have some ideas.
I do have one random question about what you sent. On the back of the Metro card it says, "Surfing on trains can be deadly." What are they talking about?
Response: Thanks!! I believe that means you have to hold on to the rails and bars, some trains are so crowded, lots of ppl are standing...and these trains go so fast that its referred to as "surfing" if you dont hold on. haha. I for one wouldnt last a second at "surfing" lol. thanks again for the rate...cant wit to see your masterpc. take care
Comment: Hey there! Sorry about the delayed rating. It was my first week back at school and things were a little hectic this week when I received your letter. But, boy was it wonderful getting something so beautiful as your list (and decorated envelope) in the mail! Thanks so much for making it special--I hope all your dreams and wishes come true...
Response: THANK YOU so much!!! wishing you a wonderful '09..
Comment: Hi Lois, Thank you for the lovely notecard, and decorated envelope. I never realized how a simple drawing on the outside on an envelope could liven up the mail so much. What a special touch. I really enjoyed reading about this small piece of your life. I think we may actually have quite a bit in common ;o). Your sons sound wonderful; how could they be anything else with a great mom like you!
Response: thank you,Wendi, that is very kind of you! xo
Comment: Hi Lois, This card is SO COOL! I just went to Chicago with my son. I didn't get to go to the Art Institute and was kinda bummed. Now i have a really neat card from there thanks to you! You had the wrong swap on here but since it had the #6 i knew which one it really was. You had p.c.lovers swap #6. LOL. Don't worry about it! I would love to have a whole box of cards, old or new from chicago! Very cool place. Again, Thank you so very much!! HUGS, Judy
Response: THANK YOU soooo much Judy!!
So glad you liked the card! This was my very first time in any swap so sorry about the wrong name!! I'm just so thrilled! That postcard actually came from a collection that my mother gave me and it really is old! I too love chicago xoxo, Lois
