Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter and the postcards! I really enjoyed reading about your LFL. Just so you know, while I haven't read the book that you chose from the box and then let go, it is by a couple of my favorite authors and is in a series I really enjoy. So far I haven't really read one that is full of serial killers. Usually the murders happen before the book opens and the opening is where the agent arrives at the scene. They are very exciting, (and usually a little supernatural) but not really very graphic. They are always very well written. I hope you enjoy your next choice more. :)
Response: Thank you for taking time to explain! Maybe I will give the authors a try another time! Hope you find a good read, too!

Thank you for the Nancy Drew postcards too...I also read them growing up because my Mum was a huge fan when she was little and I also developed her love for the stories :) she has tried to claim the postcards already!
Response: You're so welcome! I'm glad you both liked them! They came in a set of 30 from Chronicle Books, as a 75th anniversary celebration. Apparently, they have a whole line of Nancy Drew products for sale. Those books sure have passed the test of time! I had 4th graders who were still reading them a few years ago! Enjoy!

Comment: Wow! What a hat! It is funny, I have been thinking about typewriters all week (not exclusively, but I was remembering my old Remington, which was I am sure donated away by my mother long ago) ... I love the typewriter card and the typewritten paper you used! My daughter is going to be captivated by the butterfly bookmark -- I am waiting to get her to myself to play with it :) And I really needed a little Aloha this week, too ... Thanks so much! We are really quite boring at home, but we try to have a little fun here and there :) I am excited to figure out the crown pattern .. I think I get it, but I will have to experiment a bit!
Response: You are so welcome! Glad you liked the things I sent! I tried to find the link to the folding of the crown, but had no luck. I'm betting you can figure it out. Have fun! Karen

Comment: Wow! These are FANG-Tastic envies Karen!! Thank you for checking out my Etsy and my profile. Of course, you know the envies are just perfect! Questions: What kind of pen are you using? I like it a lot! Also, are you using the paper that comes in the thick stack that is square? LOL, also what are you using for the adhesive? I have the tape kind but I was wondering what kind you use! Thanks so much for all of them, Can't wait to send them off!
Response: You are certainly welcome! Glad you liked them! The paper is 12x12 sheets from various scrapbook stores. I use Tombo Mono Dots adhesive to put the envelopes together and Lick'n Stick for the glue that you lick on the flap. The pen I think I used is a Glaze pen, where the ink dries raised off the paper. You just have to write slowly to get that effect. I am happy that you're pleased! Have fun! Karen

Response: You are very welcome! I'm sorry that the insides didn't make it! There was a letter on a witch's hat notecard that included a compliment for you about your wonderful Plant An Extra Row program and your efforts to leave a small footprint on the earth! I have told several people about that already. I also sent some ghost decoration for the window, which I was concerned might not fit with the good you are doing in your green lifestyle. Guess I didn't have to worry after all! I'm glad that you at least liked the envelope! Take care, Karen

Comment: Thank you for the lovely post card.. But I am not sure if you inserted 2 lies or a truth. So i will have to say, glad you had a good vacation.
Response: Hi! Glad you got the card! I did not go on a vacation to Slovenia, I just used a postcard sent to me in another swap! So there is no Aunt Marta, and I found out that Slovenia has Lipizzan horses on the Internet! I DID yodel in the Alps, and my sons got to play Alpine horns...but that was 23 years ago! Guess I'm pretty good at telling lies! Thanks for being a good sport! Take care, Karen

Comment: Wow!! Again, I am blown away by your swap! You totally spoil me! LOL! Your zine is so cute! We have the same taste in movies...though I have yet to see Gone With The Wind...I know, I know...everyone tells me to watch it haha! You've Got Mail is one of those movies that I will watch whenever I see that it is on TV, plus I own it. It's just one of those feel good films. Love it. Love the other 3 you mentioned too. Looking forward to trying the plastic wrap on water color - looks awesome. The picture of your sons in the Grinch outfits - Priceless!! Love it! The recipe sounds amazing and I always find it interesting when there is a hidden ingredient like that (tomato soup in chocolate cake...who knew?). The tea wallet. Oh my gosh! I did a happy dance! You totally made my day with that!! Can't wait to try the teas and the wallet is too cute! Love the way you wrote my name on the envelope and the tape on the bubble envelope was really cool!! You find the most wonderful things! Okay, I've written a small book here, so I will wrap it up and say that this was an awesome swap and I thank you so very much for everything and all the thought behind it! :)
Response: It was my pleasure! And thank you for all of your kind words! It's nice to be appreciated! I hope our paths will cross again soon! Take care, Karen

I love your mini-zine - very creative and well done! :) It's funny that your sister lives near Ventura because I have family up in Oregon (my mom, aunts and uncle, grandparents - everyone moved up there from CA years ago). And that is so cool that your dad helped build the Haunted Mansion elevator!!!! WOW!!!! That's probably my favorite part of the ride...let me think...yeah, it definitely is my favorite! Thanks for sharing that with me! :) And thanks again for such an amazing swap package! (apologies for the lateness of my rating...haven't had a chance to go through mail until now) ----I'm back to add a couple more comments...

From your chicly taped box - the individually wrapped items - your handmade book (thank you for the instructions!) w/ individually bagged tags in each pocket - and your handmade 'big top' - the top notch quality of the fireworks labels, journal tags & the juggler notes {where on earth did you find these treasures?} - the jailer's keys [WOW! nice!!] - the cookies, candles, cotton candy, corn dog mints {unbelievably cute!) - the wind up clown toy - the vintage images & your lovely note - THE BEST EVER! I am humbled by your thoughtfulness and class. From my heart, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was hoping I would not get a plain jane letter from my partner as I put a bit of work in my response. The other cool thing is we have a lot of the same answers....cool huh? Thank you.
