You're a wonderful person. Thank you so much for the swaps you host. They're fantastic and wonderfully simple.

Thanks, VivaLaDiane, I received the invite to Newbie Helpers! I appreciate all your help! Have an awesome day. ❤️

DaiziDruke on Aug 31, 2017:

Hi, VivaLaDiane, thank you for your fun comment! My, my, my...we do have quite a bit in common. I read your awesome profile and see how truly lacking mine is! I am not a fan of reality shows (Ugh!) and enjoy many of the same movies (How could I have forgotten LOTR!?) as well as music choices.

I would love to join the Newbie Helpers group as I feel a bit bewildered right now. I did locate the Newbie Helpers group. Do I request to join or is there a separate invitation that I am overlooking? (See!? All the advice I can get. 😬)

Also, once I get a bit more acclimated and have a few swaps in pocket, I would love to do a private swap with you. I had to look up magpie last night as that was a new term to me so will need some tips.

Have a fabulous day tomorrow and thanks again for the warm welcome! I am looking forward to the September PC Swap! ❤️
