donetta rated for USAPC: Mini File Folder Junk Journal on Jul 27, 2020
Comment: Holy cow, Patricia! I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful little junk journal! It's fantastic...and full of great ideas that I may incorporate into my own future junk journals; primary being the torn strips of book page, which adds so much more interest than a simple solid book page. One of the very best things about swapping is the opportunity to learn new techniques and ideas from swap partners! Thank you for providing me with a beautiful little journal and with inspiration galore!
Response: You making me blushed LOL. I am so happy you like it. Happy swapping, happy crafting.

Hey there,

I just wanted to thank you for hosting the 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. swap! I had a great time putting together a nice little package of extras and profile surprises for my partner, and I received my partner's today and got so much cool stuff! It really was a fun swap, and if you ever decided to host again, I would definitely join (esp if the turnaround date was a bit longer)

Thanks for being a good host!
