Comment: Your card is beautiful. Thank you so much for including the poem. It's darling. Congrats on your 5 babies! I hope it's the start of many more to come considering I have three daughters! Merriest of Christmast to you.
Response: YW! We are now having babies "exponentially!" My sister alone has 16 grandkids and 1 on the way! Her family looks like a small village! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the Christmas card! I just had my first baby in October and this will be his first Christmas so thank you for the poem you included! Congratulations on the added new life in you family! Have a Merry Christmas!
Response: YW! How exciting for you! Special blessings to you and the baby! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Hi Katina! Thanks for the cute Santa and his skinny tree, so cute. A tree doesn’t have to be huge or even large to enjoy. Growing up we had a little fake tree sitting on a table. Being with loved ones is what counts. I’ve spent a few by myself so I love being with family now more than ever! I wish you happy happy holidays! Take care, Judy
Response: I love Christmas trees of all sizes. I had a ceramic table top tree for years. And I love to use them in my art, currently using baby trees about 1" tall! Merry Christmas to you! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Got it!! Thanks love! It's the first one to be opened this year and I'm so glad it's from a friend! We don't have much family, so that's why I do a lot of swaps during holidays! Thank you so much!!
Response: YW! I feel the same way! One day we need to meet in the middle! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Loved the poem you included. :) Although, my husband actually LIKES lumpy gravy. When I manage to make it smooth he's disappointed! ha! Wishing you a great holiday season. :)
Response: YW! My dad tried to teach my how to make gravy when I was about 12 years old and I ended up with a lumpy, cement-like mess! (Your hubbie may like lumps... but cement... probably not!!) My dad gave up on me but I finally learned on my own several years later! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: November greetings & thank you kindly for the Thanksgiving card, cutely decorated envie & plus all the extras! I especially adore the Texas boot PC. It’s going into my junk journal. Your card went up on my mantle for decorations 🦃
Response: YW and glad to see the Boot PC went to a good home! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Sorry for the late rating - was cleaning through my room and found this -.- also through wear and tear of USPS the swap title got ripped off - the number of the touristy postcard swap series was missing lol :P
Response: Don't you just love the post office. At least the USPS Mail-Eating Monster didn't swallow the entire PC!
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap & for the awesome turkey card & fabulous postcards. I LOVE all the PC's that you thoughtfully picked out & sent that matched my profile faves. Thanks for taking the time to make this an extra special swap. HUGS!!
Response: YW! I enjoy reading the profiles and always try to send tuck-ins that are mentioned as "likes!" Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I wish I could give triple stars!! I LOVED THIS CARD!!! I love kitties and birds and the Guinea pig stamp is to die for!!!! I need to find these pet stamps and get them!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much you made my day!!! :)
Response: YW! And I'm really glad you liked it, and the stamp! It was fun finding things that matched your profile! As for the stamps, they are called "Pets" and are from 2015 so don't know if they are available. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the fox card. Would you believe I just sent that one to someone else? I love sage cornbread dressing, too, That's how I have made mine. You'll be receiving some swaps from me soon.
Response: YW! I thought the fox was too cute! Looking forward to the swaps! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the grape cocktail card! I tried RIO before, it's kind of like fourloko, but much more fizzy than strong tasting. You should try it when you go to Asia. Also, love the tape decorations!
Response: YW! We don't have Rio here but we do have Fourloko, so I will be trying that instead since I don't anticipate getting to Asia any time soon!
Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I am sooooo excited that you made me a book. I made my partner one as well and all I kept thinking was how much I would love to one day receive a book too. I enjoyed your book so much. Love the beads. I had a blast reading your answers. I feel like I could talk to you for hours about your responses. And thank you for all the goodies. So very kind and nice. And just to let you know, the 12 year old girl in me squealed with delight at the sight of a babysitters club postcard! Thanks for making my night. Happy Halloween!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it and the Babysitter's club PC! I had a lot of fun with this swap and really wanted to make it special! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Hi Katina, enjoyed your N answers, especially Narwhal, the neck nipper and the NYPD Red connection. I read a ton of Pattersons books especially fond of his Women's Murder Club series written with Maxine Paetro. How cool you are a character. We have something in common there. I'll share with you later. For now though, I just made a YouTube vid opening my swapbot mail and showing how I rate. Your pc is featured and I'll send link when its up. Thanks again for a fun swap.
Response: Can't wait to hear about your "character" and can't wait to see your YouTube video! It's things like this that make swapping so much fun! And I've read a lot of the "Women's Murder Club" series, need to read the rest! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Yes they are real. HAHAHA! I'm sure I don't have to tell you how much I love the postcard! But I'm going to anyways! I love it! I had received 2 others from the set as well! I'm getting quite the collection! I have syphilis and malignant! What should I do nurse? HAHAHA
Response: Couldn't resist! I got one in another swap and had to buy the set! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Oh how wonderful you are the best, the card and the postcard. I was so excited when I saw the card with the dog. Then I opened the card and saw Shirley I was overjoyed. Thank you so very much.
Response: YW! Glad you liked everything! Thanks for the rating & heart!
Comment: I had to laugh when I saw this in my mailbox. I also sent this card out for this swap to my partner! You should try a chocolate martini ~ sooo good!!! Just like chocolate milk! Have a great day and happy swapping!
Response: Too funny! I had my first chocolate martini at Carrabba’s Italian Grill and LOVED it! You should try a Mudslide too! Thank you!
Comment: This is funny. I had a blank version of this for years I held onto, I got another blank one last week and then this one from you!! Love it, finally have one that's written on and can send it to someone else! Thanks!!!
Response: Serendipity! YW! Thanks for the rating & heart!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard. And you have a great list of things to see in Texas. My daughter was in Dallas this summer and visited the zoo with her boys. They also were at the beach. Maybe I will go there sometime.
Response: YW! Hope you make it here. There's tons to do! Thanks for the rating & heart!
Comment: Not only is my card sooo stinkin cute... BUT YOU SENT THE BEST CARD EVA!!!!! I love vampires and its the first vamp card I have and will treasure this card thanks soooooo much if I could give you 100 <3 I would thanks again for an amazing card and postcard love them both xoxoxoxoxoxox
Response: OMG! Your comment made my day! I'm so glad I had the perfect PC for you!! Thank you for the heart! And for the virtual 100 hearts!! Tons of hearts to you to for being so sweet! ❤❤❤
Comment: Oh-you know I love black cats because I have one. Cute card and cute extras. Like that Halloween poem too-never had heard that one before. Thanks for sharing-Happy Halloween!
Response: I love your kitties names! I have a friend named Lenore and she's named after the Poe poem too! And I love black kitties, I go to my vet's to play with some they have up for adoption right now! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Katina Thank you so very much for the Pug postcard! Braydyn LOVES pugs & dogs so he was real happy when I showed it to him! And believe me I agree with what you wrote! My husband used to tell me all the time! working with all women is really horrible. I used to work in a pharmacy, I loved my job but I worked with all women and it was hell! Felt like I was back in high school the way they treated each other!! They used to group up and whisper about other workers! I ended up having to leave because of getting treated so badly by them!
Response: I'm so glad y'all liked the PC! I hear this a lot from pharmacists I work with, and they tell me it started when more women began entering this "usually" male dominated profession. And... I'd rather work with men any day! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the post card. Yes, we do seem to have quite a bit in common. I think it's fun to know there's someone out there like you. Too bad they're always so far away. We have 4 kitties and they're all cold tonight so I started the space heater for them. Thanks again.
Response: YW! My kitty has his own heating pad, and when that's not enough he sleeps on my chest! You'd think it would be the other way around. And I feel the same way, I'd love to live closer to some of my swap partners! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the super cute selection & extras! I'll find some to keep&some to swap in future hunts! The only thing- the main 4 should have been real photo-type, not illustrations of animals. They are cute and I enjoy them, just be careful of future swap requirements so partners don't rate down. I think most of swaps in the AN group are for real photo type.
Response: Thanks for the head's up, I totally missed that! Thanks for the heart! 😺🐶
Comment: Thank you Katina for the great quote by Groucho Marx. My father actually met him as a kid as Groucho passed thru Portland Oregon in the early 1930s and my father dressed up like him and he was awarded the prize and Groucho got to meet him. My father was a brilliant man all of his life and well respected. Couldn’t help share that little tidbit of information. My father always loved a great laugh and that was a great way for me to think about my father as he has passed on. Thank you again!
Response: YW! It's awesome you have such wonderful and loving memories of him; he sounds like a special man! Thanks for the heart!
Response: YW! Thanks for the heart! Fun story: We all love pecan pie and my dad always made it for us. So when he passed away we honored him by burying him in a pecan wood casket and then we all had pecan pie at a local restaurant later that day!
Comment: Thank you for the India card, first time I have seen the film peel off 1/4 of the card.
Response: YW! Thanks for the heart! Oh no! I've started getting PCs like that too. I think it's the automated machines they are going through. I even get them with half of my address gone, but they still make it to me somehow!
Comment: Hi Katina,
Thank you for the very nice card. I am going to have to look into Ivan I. Shishkin. I do not believe I am familiar with any of his work.
I too am looking forward to cooler weather.
Response: I am sooo sorry! I had a bunch of swaps I was sending that week and must have mixed one up because I read profiles closely, especially the dislikes, so this doesn't happen! Sending you a private message.
Comment: I really like this chunk of the Topo Chico box! And the quote about your mom (or a mom) that places gifts into boxes from stores that went out of business 20 years ago! My Mom does the same. Haha! Thanks, xo
Response: I love Topo Chico with a dash of lime! And the quote is not my mom but I know several people who's moms did that! One of my friends told me their family has a "gift bag" that has been passed around for 30 years, and they always wonder who will get it next! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the card, Katina! I agree with the quote you added to the back about honest reactions and true loyalty coming from our pets only, but when you think about that it's kind of sad I think. It's the nature of our world these days, I guess.
Response: So true! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I got your postcard and resend on the same day! Love them both. I love your Bacardi story. Great post card. Thank you so much!
Response: Funny...except I think the Bacardi story was on the "Make a toast" card so it's two different swaps! The resend had the same map quote as the original... Thanks for the rating and the heart
Comment: It was a beautiful postcard. The USPS thrashed the poor thing though. It arrived badly taped together as it was ripped completely in half and slightly shredded. I know you took great care but the machines at the post office do not. Poor Catharina!
Response: Wow! And I thought since the card was a "good" weight it wouldn't have any trouble going through the mail! I'm going to resend one in an envie! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: I love getting Beatles postcards! Thank you so much!
Response: YW! Glad you liked it! Thanks for the rating! (and FYI... my neighbor got to see the Beatles in their first concert in Dallas back in the 60's so that PC brought back lots of memories for me!)
Comment: OmG where did you get this card from? It is incredible!! I have never received anything like it. Thank you!
Response: YW! And I'm glad you liked it. I couldn't find PCs in Dallas so I went online and I got these from Aliexpress.com; they have a ton of fun shapes and subjects. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the card and sorry about the long rating delay. The card was delivered to my neighbor who was on vacation. OOPS! Sounds like a rough engagement, but thankful it led to better things!
Response: YW and no problem! And my life improved immediately! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the card and note. I can see my cat playing with a balloon then when it popped (which it would with her sharp claws) running and hiding in her safe spot under the bathroom sink.
Response: YW! My first blue Russian loved balloons. Even if I hid them he would find them and play with them and then hide them from me so I couldn't take them away!! He was too smart for me! Thanks for the rating and the heart
Comment: Thank you so much for the Temple of Hera postcard! I would love to see some more of Greek ancient history. So far I've been to Kos (twice) and Crete only :)
Response: I went to Crete as a child and wanted to see Knossos but something came up and we weren't able to go. I've always regretted not being able to see it! Hope you got to go there! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the post card. It looked familiar, I've got the same box. Been raining today. Temp is down to 70 degrees. Feels nice. Thanks again
Response: I've got 3 boxes! They were $5 each so I couldn't pass them up since I am trying to do a lot of swapping and trying to save money at the same time! We're still around 100 degrees here, maybe mid 70's in the middle of the night! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Love the quote on the front of the pc U chose to send 😊😊I love the stamps and I wish I had finished college instead of letting a boy persuade me to follow him. Lol. Thanks katina.
Response: YW and glad you liked the PC! I dropped out of college the first time due to "burn-out", but I did return to college because of, or maybe in spite of, a man. I'll message you the synopsis! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Loved the cute postcard and the quote was so cute reminds me of my puppy!! Thank you
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I love puppies but don't have one b/c the one I want is an Alaskan Malamute with blue eyes and I can't physically handle a dog that big now! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Liked the vintage zoo ticket postcard and of course the vintage postcard stamps you used. Not at 109 F here yet! I'll have to check out the Martin Short skit, but for now, on my way to the pool...
Response: Glad you liked it. Enjoy the pool! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for an interesting card and interesting stamps. You must be melting there. Our heat index gets up over a 100 even when the thermometer shows lower temperatures. The humidity is dreadful. Dustin Hoffman huh?
Response: Ha Ha! Dustin Hoffman, why not! Our heat index also reads higher than the actual temp, I don't even want to know what it is some days! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your postoffice with me! I wish I had known about this swap when we were on vacation. We went to the cutest little postoffice outside of Birmingham Alabama. It was obviously a one woman operation and she had it decorated like it was her home.
Have a great day!
Response: YW! I used to go to a quilt shop north of me that had a really cute tiny post office in their store. It would have been fun for this swap but I wasn't anywhere in the neighborhood to get pics. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed reading your responses. I had to laugh at your answer to the names you hate! Why would anyone name their kids after germs and toilets lol 💜
Response: Unfortunately, my neighbor was one of those people that wanted "unusual" names for her kids but wasn't educated enough to know what the words really meant. She just thought they sounded pretty. Oh well... it takes all kinds. And of course, no one told her either! (I didn't meet her until years later!) Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Great list! Glad to know someone else is into horror like me!
Response: TY! I've been reading horror for over 40 years and love it! "The Stand" was my introduction to Stephen King but I was reading horror way before that book. The only book I couldn't finish the first time I read it was "The Golem", gave me nightmares; but was able to finish it years later! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I would definitely try the roller coaster and sky jump if I ever make it out to Vegas! I mean how often does one get opportunities like that? Maybe someday...
Response: You are so much braver than I am, I wouldn't even go on the roller coaster when I was there. And we stayed at New York, New York on our visit and I wouldn't ride that roller coaster either! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Your card was super rad. It’s inspiring me to step up my mail game. Being new it’s a challenge to get mail out on time but once Iget a handle on that I’m going to try using cool tape and colorful markers. Loved your mail!
Response: Thanks for the compliment! It's not often I inspire someone! I'm sending you a private message... Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Love love love the Audrey Hepburn PC. How cool that you have a Barbie of her as Eliza. I have an I Love Lucy Barbie and I love her. It was only 93 degrees in Tulsa today. I took my granddaughter to swim at the health club where I work out. We had fun
Response: Glad you liked and glad you had fun with your granddaughter! We're still pretty hot down here for a while! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: My favorite thing to open in a long time. Gorgeous card, wonderful embroidery, great stamps. Thank you!
Response: YW and glad you liked everything! Thanks for the rating and the heart! … small note: was at a friend's house yesterday who told me he had just thrown away a bunch of x-stitch pieces he was tired of carrying around; I made him dig them out of the trash and give them to me so I could see what was salvageable and they are currently soaking in Orvus!
Comment: Thanks for the backgrounds.Different from the ones I've already recieved.I see you made another set with some different colors...cool and kinda addicting,huh?I made 3 other set with different color combos.
Response: YW! They are addicting. I've never sat and just made backgrounds before and found out this is fun. Can't wait to see how everyone interpreted the instructions. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Oh, my word! Sometimes I wonder if a particular technique will be appreciated. Your work, be assured, is not wasted on me! Beautiful, gorgeous sewn PC! I Love it, thanks so very much for sending it my way! (Big smile)
Response: So glad you liked it! Thanks for the rating and the heart! ❤
Comment: What a great surprise when I opened your card (Beatles postcard)! Beautiful card and enevelope. Even though I already opened it, I’m going to tuck it away to re-open in December. Thank you so much!
Response: Glad you liked them! Merry Christmas early! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: 7/18/2018-Ty for PC and for joining this swap. Looks like your just as hot in Dallas as we are down here in Karnes City. We are at 99 F this morning. Happy Swapping..
Response: YW! Early this morning they said we were going to hit 105 today but they just changed it to 107. Tomorrow and through the weekend they are predicting 108! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: What a terrific post card I got from Katina! Thank you so much for making my first swap a really special thing. I really appreciate your patience with me and hope that I did the swap as well as you did. Thank you so much for the lovely postcard, it really brightened and already happy day!
Response: YW! I'm glad I could make your first swap "experience", and your day, so special!! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Love the Halloween themed. I also checked out the Wicked Quilt Challenge. I wish it was still on tour! Thank you again
Response: Glad you liked it. I never got to see the Wicked quilts in person but I did buy the Exhibit Catalog, with the Lion King Catalog, and love them both. I highly recommend them. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Took me a bit to realize the postcard wasn't ripped haha. I loved it! Very themed.
The book sounds super interesting, like I Am the Messenger meets Dead Like Me the tv show. I need to add that to my to read
Response: If you like Grim Reaper books check out the Darynda Jones books: Charley Davidson Series. The first book is "First Grave on the Right" and currently there are 13 books in the series (I've read 12). Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: How did you do the image transfer? It looks very cool, thank you!
Response: I can't remember which solvent we used when I first learned but now I use Goof Off. Here's a link to a YouTube video or just google Solvent Image Transfer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqQlYwu-INg Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: What’s wrong with Kansas? Haha I prefer going to Wichita over OKC.
Response: My friend used to tell me that there it was so flat and had so many "same looking" wheat fields that you expected to see a sign saying "End of Earth 5 Miles"!!! Ha ha!! I will never forget that!
Comment: Thanks for the adorable PC! You are right about the heat, but our monsoon rains are starting so we are getting some cooling, thank goodness. BTW -- I love all the kitties and quotes on your profile. I hope we get to swap again!
Response: Glad you liked the PC. My mom has told me about rains and flooding but she never mentioned actual monsoons! That's a lot of water! Send some to Texas please! See you in another swap!
Comment: Thanks for the very cool X files card, it's my very first one. I loved watching the X-files together with my father. Thanks for the tip for John Sandford's Prey series, I'm putting it on my to read list :) Have you ever read the books written by Lilian Jackson Braun? I love her The cat who.... series.
Response: Glad you liked the PC. I've read everything LJBraun wrote (in order) and was sad to see the series end! Makes me want to adopt 2 Siamese kitties! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the card of the stained glass. Looked at the ones on your profile--great job! Our church is well known here in Goshen for its' beautiful stained glass windows. Have a great summer.
Response: Thank you. And I love church stained glass windows. Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Thank you! We have a stained glass window in our front door and a coordinating one in the entryway. I looked at the ones you posted on your profile. They are lovely!
Response: Thank you. I made the sun stained glass in the 80's and the instructor told us we would not like our first window so we should use cheap glass. I disagreed and used antique glass (the most expensive at the time) because it had the look I wanted, and I've loved it ever since!! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Love love love this pc!! My Mom and I went to the Neue Galerie in NYC to see his painting “Woman in Gold”. His work is so interesting! Thanks too for the lovely note:) Hope you had a great week!
Response: So glad you liked it. I wish I could see some of his work in person; I sure it's magnificent. Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the PC! Stamp wasn’t cancelled, I’m tempted to start peeling them off so they can be reused! Always nice to hear from a fellow RN:) Hope you have a great weekend!
Response: YW! I've found that the post office hasn't figured out which side is the front of the "cardboard" PCs so they don't run then through the sorter correctly so the stamps don't get cancelled. I have a lot like that too. Try to freeze them off or use "un-do remover"; that's what I'm going to do! You have a great w/e too! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: I love your quilt ATC - so clever! Also I love the cat card and the foreign language pages. I've made many dolls over the years, but not too many lately. I need to start up again since I enjoy it so much.
Response: Thank you, I had fun making it! And thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: II've made a few art quilts and really want to start making more. do you have a pinterest page with your quilts?
Response: Art quilts are fun to make and if you haven't already you should join a local "art quilt" group if you can. And if you don't know about them, you can go to http://www.saqa.com/ and look at their Galleries (usually themed). SAQA also does a yearly Benefit Auction for 12x12" quilts and they are not by theme so there is a huge variety and skill level here.
I have a Pinterest account but not a Quilt page for my own quilts. I don't really use it very much...
Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Hi Katina, I received one from you today and sent one out to you today also :) thank you for the Wisteria stain glass PC. LOL..."tongue was sharp on both sides"...my procrastination activity is the same as yours:reading...I read ALOT !!! Have a lovely week end peace love light
Response: Glad you liked my answers, it was fun thinking back on some of them. I'm finding a lot of the same partners in the swaps I'm joining so it just gives me a better opportunity to get to know people. Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Hey! I was on a break for 2 years lol, I just barely updated my links-oops! My cats don't care much for toys either, I really need to update their section, all they like is literally one specific brand of toys!
Response: Welcome back! Cats can be soooo finicky! I know mine is, especially with his food. There are days when he won't anything except whip cream and treats. (I'm normally a good kitty mom but he's been sick and I've been trying to get him to gain weight.) Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Thank you Katina for the beautiful card ..My aunt’s name is Katina ..My mom was born in Detroit but my grandma was very homesick , so they had to go back....I married an American and came to the US as an adult ..It was nice to meet you :)
Response: Nice to meet you too through your profile! I have several friends that went back to Greece over the last several years and my nephew is staying there because his wife is from Greece and is the homesick one! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Thank you for your cute notecard. I love the handmade art. Cute fish! Great washi choices too! It’s funny I’ve never seen anyone use the symbol for with except for nurses! I was a nurse for 12 years but left it for the US Postal Service! Less stress and more money and benefits, who knew.
Response: Glad you liked everything! I tested for the Post Office in the early 80's and was in the group to be hired immediately but Reagan put a freeze on hiring and it took 4 years to get to my name and I had already moved to TX by then (and it was a temp assign only). Oh well, it's funny where life takes you! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Oh yes! Being a crazy cat lady is awesome! I always have one or 5 up my butt when I do anything. Lol But they are my babies.
Response: The last kitty I have left is not social, so it's like having a "hairy" roommate that just comes out of his cave to eat! Hopefully my next one will like me better! Thanks for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Ohhhh my. Oh I adore this card oh tytytytyty! I LOVE this! Tyty
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart and thanks so much for being so pleased with the swap! This was my first Swap-Bot swap and I was a little concerned about how it would be received. You made my day!
