Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful letter. Much of your letter inspired me to appreciate more of my life and the people around me. A resolution for the new year. Thank you for sharing your gratitude with me. Also thank you for the two postcards that you included with the swap.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard with the trees! It helps me to have a schedule as well. To Do Lists... not so much. I love writing lists, but I never look at them again, after writing them! haha!
Comment: Debbie, WOW! Thank you so much for these beautiful ATC's that you sent me! I love them both so very much! I am so honored that I was able to be your partner for your second ever ATC swap. Also, thank you for the lovely note that you sent as well. The pumpkin cold brew sounds absolutely delicious! I just love the sound of that and I wish I could try some. Thank you so much again for the ATCs, I can't wait to add them into my collection!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC and extras. The envelope was beautifully decorated as well!
Zines are small mini magazines made usually from one sheet of paper. They can be made about any subject. If you go to YouTube and search zines or mini zines you can see how they are made 😃

Comment: Omg I absolutely LOVED the flip book you made!!! Thank you so much for the goodies and the beautiful crafting💖 My nana was from Iowa so it’s cool to get some info about something from that state, definitely some place I’d like to stay when we decide to visit!
Comment: Thank you for the goodies. I'm so sorry you had to deal with that. We have a rental attached to our house and we've been lucky we've only had one horrible tenant. The place looks gorgeous. I will definitely hang on to the card.
Response: I love that you have a rental attached to your house! Income spaces are the best! I hope you’ll only enjoy good things from it…it took me years to get my “horror story”! 🙌🏼 blessings!
Comment: The map envelope was really cool! I LOVED your note and the paper didn't smell like caramel, but it still has a 'vintage-y' look which I loved. I also really enjoyed the goodies you enclosed, thank you so much. Such a lovely swap!! :D
Response: I’m so glad you enjoyed this, I had so much fun making it for you! Enjoy the rest of your June! ❤️Debbie
Comment: Thank you so much for your card and the PC, Stickers and note paper! For this Valentine's day my sweet hubby and I will probably be hangin' out at home. Texas is expecting a winter storm (with ice and snow) like we have never seen in Houston in my lifetime. I'd rather watch it from the windows. LOL! Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
Response: I’m so glad you’re able to stay home. What a long winter it’s been! It’s -6 here right now 🥶 We will be home as much as possible the next few days as well. Stay warm and safe Diane!!!
Comment: Oh my goodness, thank you SO much for everything! I can't even say how much this made me happy and smile. I truly appreciate you and I am so grateful for you and all the goodies you sent me! Thank you also for the letter message! I am so thrilled from the bottom of my heart to hear that you are doing well! I truly can't thank you enough for everything, my heart truly feels so happy!

Comment: Hi, Debbie. Loved everything. Thank you! FYI - your note said this was for "Quick Stationery Destach #83". However, I was not in this swap, but I did have you for this destash #5. :) Thanks, again.
Response: This made me laugh a little, this is totally why I shouldn’t do my swaps at 5am. I’m glad you associated my swap with its proper person-sorry for the extra hassle there. Happy writing!💕💕
Comment: Oh my gosh! Thank you so very much for the nice note and special tuck-ins! You really made me feel so special! Love your handwriting, and your sharing. I appreciate the time and thought that you put into this swap. I'm sure someone that appreciates your church house as much as you do, will move in there. I have a friend who moved into a church and made it their home. Take care and enjoy!
Response: This made my day to read! I’m so happy you enjoyed this. I had so much fun putting it together for you-it’s always fun know it brought some happy! Enjoy the past half of your November! Stay healthy! 💕Debbie
Comment: Your handwriting/script is amazing! It made me so happy to read all the little things you signed. I did want to tell you, when I got the envelope it had come completely open. There was plenty in the letter so I don't think anything fell out. But I wanted you to know!
Response: Rank you for your kind words and bummer, sorry about my envelope! I always feel like I overtake them but clearly not! 😂😘💕
Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful letter and all the sweet extras! You have a beautiful family and I hope the courts get on the ball and complete the papers to add those babies to the family. Have a wonderful day and stay safe!
Comment: Ha! I am so glad I'm not the only one that sometimes forgets to put the note into the envelope! I love the bioluminescent stamp, too. When we go camping we love to take our blacklights and look for scorpions and centipedes/millipedes. Thank you!
Response: Haha thanks for being gracious. I’m so happy you enjoyed the swap. Have a great Aug!
Comment: Lovely letter. So sorry you had to wait for a rating. I only got back to Michigan on Saturday and went thru my mail today. I will be writing back. Thank you. Updated.. I do not have your address. It is not on the envelope. Can you please send me a message with it? Thank you

We went to the store tonight and it was still very low on TP and other supplies. :( I hope you were able to find the formula and wipes you mentioned. Thats so sad that people are hoarding things like that. :(

Comment: Thanks for the fbs and slams along with the tuck ins. 😀 Thanks for the great Galveston Island pc, your pretty Airbnb and the cute hedgehog stationery. 😀 I liked the Aladdin book page you used to make the envelope.

Comment: Your handwriting is the coolest! I have been in the same boat of purging & giving stuff away..mostly giving stuff away to help people out :D I'd love to be penpals if you're interested, just let me know!
Response: Thank you so much for taking a moment to say all of this! So much of me wants to say, yes, let’s be friends but I am so nervous to do so. Since sending this swap I took on our 11 month old foster sons 1 month old sister who is struggling greatly-time is not in my side. BUT toss me a letter and introduce yourself, I’m positive things will improve with some time! ♥️Debbie

Comment: Thanks for the letter. I know we did a few swaps right when you started you Airbnb. I was happy to partner with you and can write back. I lost your address and was hoping someday to reconnect.

Response: Thank you(: my mama taught me to write and I fell in love with it although I’m less patient in my adult years with the business of life(;! Handwriting books while listening to audiobooks was a pastime as a grade schooler (: thanks for taking a moment to rate. Love from the church house in Carlisle, ❤️Debbie
Comment: love how you did a criss-cross layout for this - very cool! I ended up sozzling in the rain yesterday during the storms lol :P
Response: Thank you! Sometimes postcards can feel drole so I thought I’d mix it up a bit (: glad it added some fun to your eyeballs. Sozzle, i love that you’re owning the new vocabulary! Way to expand it! Have a great September! 😘
Comment: Thank you for the Iowa Church House card! I un-rawly run the Vacation Bible School Games each year with insisture. The kids' favorite thing is to sozzle each other with water balloons!
Really! These words are great!

Comment: Thank you for the unique postcard! The verse is perfect, so very important to remember His ways are the only way! I do agree we must check our hearts against scripture so as to not fall into sin! God bless you and yours!
Response: My pleasure! I love sharing how Jesus is working on me! Thanks for reading!
Ps. Postcards our home! (:
Comment: 07/23/2018-OH!! Debbie it is always a treat to receive from you. I just love your writing and you always make things so much fun. Thank you for the friendship books and for joining this swap. Happy swapping.
Comment: What a lovely card! I can’t believe you live in such a beautiful house – that must be like living out an adventure every day. I’ve never used Airbnb before, mostly because I’ve been a student the last couple of years (with zero funds for traveling) and it’s really exploded in popularity in that time. I’ll definitely try it though – seems like a great way to travel. Hope you're well :)
Response: What a fun rating, thanks for taking the time to write this! Believe it or not sweet girl, the Old Church was abandoned so the purchase and renovations were cheaper than most other housing options for us-it was a great opportunity! It’s been hard work but we feel blessed by it.
I hope you get to do so much exploring and traveling as time passes, you sound like you’d be a person who’d love it. Best of luck with your studies!! Hope life in your area of the world is going well for you! Love from Iowa USA ❤️Debbie
Comment: Thanks for the extras :) TGIF Have a great weekend
Response: My pleasure! Yes, enjoy your weekend. Hopefully you and Layla had this amazing weather over there too!? My kids have been grateful to be outdoors without all of the layers these last couple of days. (: kind of dreading the snow that's being forecasted for the weekend. 😱Whatever the weather hope it's a great one! ❤️
Comment: thank you so much for all the friends books.... i just hope i got everything you put in there becuz the envie was torn open really bad . i am counting 6 books with one friendship sheet and some paper goods.
Response: Ahhhh! I hate when my mail gets stuck in the belts! I'm so sorry. I honestly don't remember what all I included now but I hope it all made it as well. Thanks for the heart ❤️ debbie
Comment: Thank you for all the quotes and verses, they were beautifully done!! I want to learn calligraphy and have about decided to sign up for a class on it from Lindsey @ The Postman's Knock. I plan on putting some of the verses/quotes on bulletin boards around my town! Not only share Gods Word but also share your gorgeous writing as well! : )
Response: What a great idea for the class, I hope you have a wonderful turn out! I loved your quotes too!! You're handwriting is wonderful.
Response: And I love that you love the paper I sent!!! That makes me smile(: I know everyone's tastes are different so sharing from my personal stash for senders choice always feels "risky". So glad you liked it! Thanks for taking time to rate. Happy February! â¤ï¸Debbie
Response: Thanks for taking a moment to rate-I hope that envelope didn't take 2 weeks to get to you? Eeek. Hope you enjoyed the extra stationery from my stash as well as the swap? Happy February ðŸ’—â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: I got it! I got it!!! Thank you so much for the goodies I am so excited. First off, beautiful penmanship. I wish mine was that nice! I hope you found your blue pen and that Laila didn't go too far with it. Sorry about the laundry. Thankfully my 15 year old helps out with that. BEAUTIFUL STATIONARY! You were right, I do love it. I get my stationary fix on Amazon since I'm in a small rural town and the "big stores" are all about 80mi away. Have a great weekend!
Response: Woot! If arrived, man that took forever-yikes! I sent you a private message back about the stationery-hope that helps! Molly & Rex is truly special beautiful paper!
Comment: Thank you for the swap and goodies. â¤ï¸But it came open...
Response: Thanks for the rating, I'm sorry it arrived opened-I wish I had a better way of getting things overseas. I'll definitely try more tape next time though-perhaps this would help. Have a great day! ðŸ’—Debbie
Comment: Many thanks for the cleverly designed letter. I didn't count them but obviously your mantra word is "hopefully" -- a good word! I hope your hopes will come true. It's a great pleasure to get a letter that is creative and fun to see as well as read.
Response: I'm wondering if that fact that I have a mantra word just means I overuse words. LoL ðŸ¤¦â€â™€ï¸ I'm a 30 year old that still talks like a teenager I'm sure. ðŸ˜‚ Thank you for the thoughtful wishes. I am hopeful for the new year and hope you are too! Warm regards from a really cold Iowaâ¤ï¸Debbie
Response: So frustrating. I appreciate your kindness in giving me a 5 but it's not right you only recieved a ripped envelope. I've gone ahead and repackaged a swap. It's not as personal as my first but hopefully you'll still enjoy it. ðŸ˜˜â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: Debbie, where did you pick up that Llama Christmas list paper? I have to have it!! Thanks for the sweet card & goodies. Merry Christmas!
Response: So glad you enjoyed it! The Llama paper was something I snagged out of Targets Dollar spot-it was the last one left at my store so it wouldn't be a bad idea to visit yours soon. (: hope you had a great Christmas? â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: Thanks for a fun and interesting letter. Merry Christmas
Response: I wrote that when I was overly tired. Hopefully "interesting" in a positive sense?ðŸ˜‚ Thanks so much for the heart, I always appreciate thoughts and feedback. Merry ðŸŽ„Christmas! â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: Thanks for the great card and stationery! I needed some new! I love your handwriting... It is beautiful! Do you do calligraphy? If not you should, you would be great at it. Thanks for joining my swap... Merry Christmas to you and Happy swapping....
Thanks for your kind and thoughtful rating! I use to do calligraphy as a child but my sisters were always so much more accomplished in it so I gave it up in the midst of feeling inadequate ðŸ˜‚. Thanks so much for hosting, this was fun. Merry Christmas!ðŸŽðŸŽ„ â¤ï¸â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: Thanks for the card, the extra goodies and the lovely letter. What fabulous and tiny handwriting! I've found my glasses and found the 14 on the gift box under your hand drawn tree. Too clever!!
Response: So glad it made it to you, hope you enjoyed the little extras too? Enjoy your holidays! â¤ï¸Debbie PS. I hope you found all my 14s hidden around your card/envie? ðŸ˜œ
Comment: I LOVED the packaging and all inside! I loved the drawing and will keep it to put in a journal! Thank you so much for the fun mail!
Response: Scote!...ur I mean score! Haha I'll leave that typo because if scote isn't a word I think it should be because I kind of like it! ðŸ˜‰ So happy you enjoyed my mail, it always brightens my day to hear my efforts are appreciated. I had a blast putting it all together for you. Happy March! ðŸ’•Debbie

Response: Diane, I feel like my handwriting "goes down hill" when I get going and I don't have the arthritis(: at least you have a good excuse! You're welcome for the extras. Thank you for taking a moment to share your thoughts and rate! â¤ï¸Debbie

Comment: Thank you, I had fun filling out the slams! Also love the recycled envelope (bread).
Response: Ah, I'm so glad you liked that envelope. I was afraid you might find it odd or weird (kind of was) but It was too fun not to do something with it. Hopefully you're not gluten free or something. haha Have a great day,, thanks for taking the time to leave a rating and your thoughtful comments! â™¥debbie
Comment: Thanks for the sheets! Good luck on the birth of your precious daughter. Think happy thoughts, watch happy peaceful birthing videos. Take enough rest, pamper yourself! Much love to you and your family.
Response: You are so sweet, thank you! I had to chuckle when I read: "Happy Peaceful birthing videos"-do those actually exist? If so I need to find one! I had a c-section for my first so this is a whole new world here. Thanks for the rating and your happy wishes! â¤ï¸ðŸ’œDebbie

Comment: First off your handwriting is incredibly beautiful :) Im sure youve heard that before--smile :) I loved your letter and your life sounds like mine a few years ago while I still had little ones. My youngest is 12 years old (he is 1 of 10) I truly miss the baby years... I loved being pregnant and having babies :) I loved several ideas from your boys bucket list from camping, fishing to sleepovers :) Happy summer to you---enjoy your new baby coming!

Response: I enjoyed making them! Thanks for your thoughtful response! Hope you had a chance to enjoy that tea! Happy Mother's Day!
Comment: Hello Debbie,
Thank you for the note you sent as part of the " happy Monday Note Card #4' swap. I enjoyed the heart candy you sent along with the note. Thank you for the note paper as well.
Response: This must be the envelope that was sent back to me that had something thick in it. I had it weighed at the PO and then they returned it to me as postage due. I couldn't even recall what it was because they'd held onto it for a while. I didn't want to open it and ruin any postmarks showing mails date! Sorry this was delayed!!
Thanks for letting me know if finally made it your way!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your letter. I think it would be so cool to live in a renovated church. Thanks for the note sheets also. I've always been a list maker but I need to do even more lately. I don't know where my mind goes these days. LOL!
Thank you so much for taking a moment to rate. (: I think living in a converted church will be fun once all the renovations are done! Ha. Just to be very real with you, that part gets old.
Here's to you and I being better list takers starting today! (I also love writing swap notes on those-I'm weird like that! ðŸ˜€)

Comment: I liked the little pocket and the tales of caring for your children but as an Altered Artist 'Altered' is to make your Target circular with guesso and paint with added papers, in "layers" until this Target junk mail is no longer completely recognizable. It's a hard technique to do. It's fine ....Take Care and Happy Holidays to you too!
Response: I can see how my altering something would not stand up to an artists standards as I am far from being one. Sorry the swap did not meet your full expectations. Hopefully I will have an opportunity to send you something more desirable to your tastes in a future swap. Enjoy your Thankgiving!!
Comment: Debbie, Thank you so much for the cute card! I love the Merry Christmas all over the envelope and your handwriting is beautiful! Thank you for the personal note and the goodies.......you are very kind :) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! (and Thanksgiving!) :)

Response: Thank you for your rating! I always enjoy meeting new people so if you feel like writing I would love to hear from you! â¤ï¸Debbie
Comment: I'm so thrilled with your letter and to know that you are an Iowan! I grew up in Solon, graduated in 1973. I love the stationary and stickers that you sent. Thanks so much. Your letter was such fun and I think I would have a good time keeping in touch with you and writing as often as you might want to do that. We can compare notes on our areas. I have any group on the Facebook called if you grew up in Solon Iowa you will remember... And we were talking the other day about being in downtown Cedar Rapids and remembering different things. We had a discussion once, I think about the Dance Mor and it was just a given that when you reached a certain age you went to Twitter on Saturday night. Believe it or not I've never been in that ballroom and of course now it's a part of history. Thanks again for sending such a lovely treat.
Response: First off sorry for the late reply here, I had little to no internet connection while on vacation in Dayton IA...would love to hear from you via letter! You sound so nice!
Comment: What a great 1st swap. Thank you so much Debbie, your letter was so sweet and I enjoyed reading every 2nd of it. Thank you for all the little extras as well You made my first swap so great!!! I feel as though I should be writing you back, I know it's not required of us, but your letter was so nice I feel as though it deserves a reply lol. Thank you again. I truly enjoyed this swap
Response: You're words are so kind. Thank you for the gr at rating! I hope you enjoy swap-bot as much as I do! Happy swapping â¤ï¸Debbie
