Comment: You mailed your card on Jan. 25 & it arrived Feb. 22. That's why I am not fretting over late mail. I just adored your decorated envie. Who doesn't like to see their name written so pretty?🌻
I thank you for the card, cute papers, heart stickers, & all the generous extras. I hope your V-Day was filled with love❤️
Comment: Love, love, love your zentangle in the word ART. I must try the beehive looking plant. Zentangles is addictive and calming. I am sticking to the 4 X 4 inch sizes. Later I will add colour after I feel more confident.
Comment: Happy Valentines Day Katie - thank you for the wonderful card that arrived to brighten up my mailbox today! I loved how you decorated the envelope and thank you for all the goodies inside! Happy Swapping! Dale
Comment: Oh, Katie! This envelope is so pretty. I LOVE how you addressed it. Very pretty and talented. You made me laugh with you adorable card. Thank you for the lovely little treasures. I agree about everyone needs to be shown love and affection. I recently just heard the term 'Galentine'. Have you heard this? Great idea! Thank you again for this nice swap. Have a great VDay!
Comment: Hi Katie! What an awesome Valentine you sent ~ starting with the beautiful red envelope with your cute drawings! Wow! My name & address has never been so beautiful! Cute llama card for sure. Postcard is very pretty, my niece lives in South Dakota, near the Black Hills. I had to look up what a magpie journal is. Not sure what my huge book is called, lol Since I usually glue lots of random stuff, I called it a glue book, it's made from a composition book. But I love all kinds of journals, can't draw but love to glue & stamp! Wish I could give you more than 1 heart. Thanks so much & Happy Valentine's Day!! take care ~ Judy
Comment: Mailman just delivered this. I hope you do check out Mrs. B's Guide. I wish her blog was still available. It's good info. Even if it's not the path you stick with, it's always enjoyable to learn the spirituality of others and what makes them happy and how it might grow your own happiness. I hope you have a very happy new year.
Comment: Hi name sister! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas-- it's my favorite time of year, too! ;v; Thank you so much for the precious ornament and lil papers, they will definitely get put to good use. Happy New Year!!!
Comment: Seasons Greetings,
Thank you for the pretty Christmas card & extras. No I've not tried the pixel coloring pages yet. I'm really into to coloring with the pencils and markers. I've taken to using the backs of the pages I've colored to write pen pal letters on. Did not know what to do with so many of them.
Happy New Year!

Comment: Dear swapping bud.... THERE is nothing wrong with your envie 'cept for the post office. LOL Its a beautiful, clearly written envelope! My educated guess is that the envelope failed the automation portion of going thru the system and someone just rejected it instead of running it through. Just a fluke. Anyway, crazy, man! LOL Well, its super lovely 'specially those sewn pages. I sew paper alot! Love that look! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Oh, I came back to say I reeeeeeeeeeally love that letter set you used to spell H. hALLOWEEN on the text paper!

Comment: Thanks for the nice card. I should update my profile. I do enjoy junk journals, but it's been a minute since I did as much crafting as I should be. I lost my Mom in May 2018 & my craft space was a shared space with her, so it still makes me a little sad to go in there and work. It's something I need to face, so I'll get there. And I hope I do more art & junk journaling! Have a great day.
Response: I’m sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a parent is difficult and I can understand the emotions with that. You’re welcome for the PC. Thank you for rating.

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful snowballs and the HSTs! I didn't think of that on mine but I will on the next set. They will make a great border for the quilt. I was looking for a purse pattern just today at the quilt store but they are all so big. I like a smaller purse because of my shoulder injury. This one looks like the perfect size! Have a wonderful day!
Response: I have so many purse and bag patterns 😂 and half of them are in project bags with fabric. So many things I want to make and so little time. I am happy you liked the snowballs and HSTs. Thank you for rating.

Comment: Hello & many thanx for your awesome swap! You had me at the zentangle decorated envie. It’s a keeper for sure. I especially liked the Day Spring note papers. The Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog papers were very unique. I hope your mailbox is as blessed as you have blessed mine.

The Kawaii stuff is all so cute (the sticker flake package contains some of my favorite pastel animal characters) - and thanks for the empty sticker flake packages, too! The journals are very cool and I love the Halloween socks! I think my husband and I will share the tea assortment. The fabric will be a great addition to my collection - I especially love the orange (orange tends to be something I don't buy). Love the fabric with the multi-color stars and also the one with the planets. The owl notecards are really cute - might have to use one to send a note to my daughter who is spending the semester in South Korea because she loves owls. The sticky notes are cute too.

Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm thinking I might have to make a trip to DM tomorrow to make sure I have enough to do if we get snowed in. Crossing my fingers - I love snow days, even though the kids are getting worried about making them up. Stay warm. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the lovely Valentine Day card and the extra goodies! I am sorry if I have made you anxious about your oldest going away to college! For me it was tough because I am really close to my boys and miss them so much when they are gone! I did offer to go with them as well! LOL! However, it is wonderful to see them grow as adults, spread their wings and embrace life - so we have to do it! Wishing you and yours all the best and that you will be ok with your empty nest when it happens! Or be like me and keep swapping to give you extra stuff to do! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I am delighted that you liked the valentine and the envelope. I can't imagine how much swapping I will do when they are gone. :) Thank you for the heart.
Comment: WOW! I love, love, love the mail art-collage envie--front AND back, and as if that wasn't enough you sent me some wonderful "fodder" for use in my mail art. Thanks also for the website tip. You are a great swap partner!!
Response: Thank you for the kind words. I am so happy you liked it. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Katie: Thanks so much for the beautiful Valentine's Day card, as well as the stickers. You did a great job on the envelope too, it's so festive!! Many, many thanks for everything. Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Swapping!!
Response: Your welcome. Happy Valentine's Day. Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: WOW!!! Talk about going above and beyond! I love the purple papers and the lovely journal. And the cards are SO cute. The zombie warning was awesome everything was great it made my day! Thank you so much :)
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I love the zombie warning page, I got it from Walking Dead season 2 set I think. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: What a cute recipe book you have made! I really like your style. Also, thanks for the white chile recipe. The timing was perfect. My husband made a huge batch of traditional chile 2 days ago which I refuse to eat, but the kids love. He knows that the only time I have ever had a bowl of chile I liked was at a chile cook-off and it was a white chicken chile. He had told me if I could find a recipe, he'd make that next time and VOILA! yours came in the mail! :)
Response: I am so glad you liked the cookbook. White chili is one of my families favorites. Hope you like it. It is a little spicy.
Comment: This was an awesome package! He LOVES the cars and bandaids, but they were forgotten the minute he opened the army men! In fact, right now I am surrounded by gunfire and a battle commentary! I really love the advent calendar, that is such an awesome idea!
Response: I am so glad he liked it and so is Rachelle. It seems she picked out the right surprises. Hope you have an awesome Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: Katie...WOW! What a swap! Where do I begin? I absolutely LOVE the way you decorated the envelope...thank you so much, it made my day! I LOVE the red glittery 'Noel' card, it's just awesome!!! I love your message inside the card - thank you for the encouraging words about following my passion. It's so cool we like the same movies, too! :) I actually watched some of 'Heathers' the other night ;) I love the Iowa PC, thank you so so much! I would still love an Iowa map PC, thank you for the offer. Is there any card I can send you? Thanks for the stickers too! Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas, and the very best for 2013! Margarita xx
Response: Your welcome. I will get you an Iowa PC as soon as I refill my stock. Whatever PC, I have not gotten specific yet. Thank you for rating and the heart. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Wow. I just loved reading your Christmas card message. Well, I have not left the Midwest yet unfortunately. My dream is to travel the world for a while, maybe only LIVE overseas for a year and continue to travel every year to another country. That's the plan anyway... Happy holidays! Let me know if you would like to do a 1-on-1 swap any time! :D
Response: I would love to travel someday too...maybe when the kids are done growing up. We can do some private swaps but lets wait until after the holidays. Merry Christmas. Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: OMG - What a haul! Oh, excuse my enthusiasm - but you truly stuffed that envelope. So many cool things. The papers are terrific, love the note card, love the collaged card and the page from the annual - Oh My!!! You deserve a dozen hearts. Thank you so much.
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. Thank you for the heart. Happy smashing. :)
Comment: this was my first junk journal, so I did not know what to expect. thank you very much, I loved it.
Response: I am glad you loved it. I have a little problem with perfectionist OCD, lol, and kept wanting to add to it. Initially, I had all kinds of coordinating scrapbook paper too but the guidelines said no to that. I hope you enjoy adding to it.
Comment: Thank you, thank you I love the cookbookand haven't put it down . It is so interesting and so many recipes I want to try. I also loved stickers, ATC trading cards,and the cards. Happy birthday on your special.
Response: Your welcome. I was hoping you would like the cookbooks. Madison county is about an hour from me, and the birthplace of John Wayne. A little Tricia knowledge for you. Hope you have an amazing birthday.
