Comment: Thank you so much for the amazing zines you sent me!! We were just given some sweet potatoes and I was looking for a different recipe for them, and then you sent me one. Thank you! All the other recipes looked wonderful too. Also, I have been trying to decide on some future plans and "I'm looking at my only Problem" is EXACTLY what has been holding me back, and the kick in the pants I have needed. I will put that quote next to my mirror and every time I look into the mirror I will tell myself that "I can do it!" Thank you for the INSPIRATION!

Comment: Oh Laura, I just love her. She is so fantastic and so like your wonderful work! I adore her face. Did you make it yourself? I can't quite figure out how you did it, but it is extraordinary!
Response: I'm so glad you like her! Yes, I made her face. I put foil over a ceramic face from a statue I made making a mold then carefully remove the foil and fill it with hot glue. Then it can be 'antiqued' with inks and paint. It's a fun technique that works great! ENJOY! L

Comment: Thank you for the postcard, have you ever found any gold there? Anna
Response: We sure have! We have a sluice box and gold pans for panning. You can also still stake a claim on the river. All you have to do is live there for 30 days! Much of the gold is locked in the quartz rocks and has to be pulverized and mixed with mercury and burned off. But if you know where to go, you can find all kinds of gold from 'match heads' to flecks to dust. There are still many miners here who make a living on their finds. Our little town of just over 1,000 population use to be a city of 14,000+ people in the gold rush era. We live by the old hanging tree!

I appreciate the very kind comments about me and excited about having me as a swap partner. I am excited about having you as a partner as well. The opening letter was wonderful and I felt like I was so important and cared about.As well, I liked how you wrote about my user name I go by in Swap-bot. I also just think it is so wonderful that you wrote a fun and creative note for each item you wrapped for me. I can't tell you how special you have made me feel and I am so grateful. I hope we have many more opportunities to cross paths and enjoy swapping with one another the way we have with this swap. Until we meet again, may you be blessed with swappers that care about you the way you care about others. YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL! Barb sleepingrover2010 P.S. I finally got through all the goodies in the box you sent. You spoiled me rotten with all that you sent. I am looking forward to enjoying the varied things you sent, one being the massaging dog. Thank you again for your wonderful genorosity.
