donetta rated for VJP: Vintage Baby Journal Page on Apr 30, 2023
Comment: I fell in love with this beauty on Facebook, and I do believe it's even more amazing in real life! Cutest baby EVER! And of course all the other elements, my favorite being the tee-tiny buttons on lace! Just gorgeous...and I also am thrilled that it came to me! I forgot to address another issue in my previous rating...Guy is (sadly) deceased. He wobbled out of his apartment and fell on the floor in the hallway and could not be resuscitated. At least he did not lay in his apartment for TWO WEEKS, while the neighbors complained about the smell of the trash room across the hall, like another resident. Sandra. Living with old people is full of excitement, in a dreadful way. You never know who is next...
Response: Oh no! I do mobile meals, I haven’t found anyone deceased yet,but have heard stories. On a brighter note, so happy when I saw this swap was going to you after you loved it on Facebook Thank you for heart & rating! Hope you’re doing well
Comment: I am blushing with shame for the late rating. There's no excuse for my lack of attention! And it probably not surprising for you to know that your lovely swap is far from the only unrated swap on my craft table...when I'm horrible, I'm just horrible across the board. Thank you so so much for lovely glue book page (oh, that gorgeous napkin!)...you spend so much time on making your backgrounds as gorgeous as the main elements, and I appreciate that so much! Thank you also for the fabulous little kitty charms...you know how I am about kitties, and how I've struggled lately with loss and...yeah. Loss. Hugs to you, my friend!
Response: Ha! Yes shame on you- but you know how to make up for it with sweet words! Hope you’re feeling better. The puppy charms weren’t as cute so kitties it is…you write the best reviews- thank you for rating & heart

Comment: Thank you for the cute dragonfly ATC. Sorry it took so long to rate. Somehow, it got misplaced when I wasn't feeling well and I just found it a couple of days ago.
Response: So glad you found it, I was worried about that one, knowing I couldn't do another like it. Thank you for heart & for rating
