RiverTopanga rated for US Only: Unusual Journal Swap on Oct 26, 2017
Comment: Hi Diane... got your journal yesterday, had to wait to rate until I was able to look at the whole thing! Wow! you did a nice job. So many concert tickets! Lucky you! My music likes are a bit more Old School... The Who, Stones, Denver, Carpenters.. etc. Different types of music.. because I like almost every type there is, including classical. The Coffee pages are wonderful! I can almost smell the coffee! The Dr. Who are great too! And I love, love the BOSTON spread. You are so clever. I used to go to Fanueil Hall and saw the Old North Church frequently when I was a teenager. We would take the train in to Boston Garden. I also enjoyed the Page One of Harry Potter. I recognized it immediately! Your lady bugs! Such adorable little buttons on their wings :-) I laughed when I saw the Back to the Future page... One of my all time favorites! Looks like the Topanga page is from a Russian map? I can't believe you found a "Topanga" in print on a map! And of course, Kali, the Polar Bear. How wonderful it was to see that too. Thank you so much for all the hard work and your thoughtfulness. I know these journals are a lot of hard work, because I did one too! haha, hehe. Yes, they are a challenge.. but what a way to challenge ourselves :-) Thank you! Swap On.
Response: ♥ You have no clue how worried I was. I took on the idea to challenge myself to just do it. I am so happy that you liked it and I greatly appreciate the rating and the comments. I also value the duties of hosting so thanks for trusting me enough to join. It means a lot. Take care!!! ♥

Comment: Guess what came in the mail today? Forwarded with about 5 other postcards from my old address. I hope you haven't actually sent the replacement yet. I actually drove through Missouri on my move cross country. I saw the arch, but couldn't get very close because the park was closed (I missed it by maybe 10 minutes). Thank you for the lovely card.
Response: Thanks for the sweet rating. I'd already sent another but I totally don't mind at all. It will give you more smiles and that's never a bad thing. I hope the move went well and that the new PC starts out the love at your new mailbox. I'm excited you enjoyed the swap. ♥
Comment: Thank you for the card and new playlist! Your handwriting is so pretty, i love it!
Response: Thanks to you for the great rating and the compliments!! :) I'm happy that I made you smile and now you've done the same. xo♥

Comment: Dear Daine, Thank you so much for your postcard! I am currently listening to the songs on your playlist and they are nice ;-) It is cool to learn that you listen to The Used too! They are a part of my middle school memories! The card itself is nice as well! Staying at Missouri, I am glad to receive a Missouri sunset card. The stamps are nice and cute as well. I appreciate it. Cheers, Jess
Response: Thanks for the great rating Jess! I love the Used still. They're a definite part of my life and I have so many memories attached to them also. Thanks for the compliments. I am thrilled that you liked the swap!! xo♥

Comment: There are so many different things on swap bot, have you checked into the dotee dolls yet? Going to be my next experiment after I'm done experimenting with painting - which Is fun and different- but I'll never be an artist 😂😂
Response: Definitely. In over 10 years I've seen them all. Dottee's are so cute. My wife loved doing them but I have zero talent that way. Thanks for the great rating!! ♥

People think you are a bully??? No way!! Never that!!! My dear, my darling... I too am alive. Yay for big and small victories! I don't have any active social media except for my Twitter which is @Qu33nOfTh3World <I was young and full of piss, vinegar, and myself haha and I think my MySpace still exist under Corina Houk.. or maybe Corina Parr.. I am on twitter, mostly to peep, but I am there. #ToddlerLife bahaha... yes, it's amazing and frustrating all at the same damn time. Right now it's terrible two's, potty training, and power struggles lol. Thank God for God Parents that take his tiny lil ass every weekend so I don't pull my hair out lol. But I'm glad you're alive, and I'm gunna find you in the places you still creep.. I am your stalker after all! 😘

Hey! Thank you for connecting with me! I used to take part in a swap called FoodiePenPals which was a Europe-based food swap - it was great fun and I'm really looking forward to getting going on here :) I also love scrapbooking and bullet journalling and I've done a few swaps that were paper clips and stuff like that! How have I only just discovered swap-bot this place is awesome?! 💕

MyHeartBelongsToSnailMail on Nov 9, 2017:

You are alive!!! Proven by your having been online today 😉... I'm glad! I haven't "seen" ya around lately, I get worried when my idols go MIA... glad to know you're alive. I'm working diligently on your RAK and the others too. Life is much busier with a toddler making my arts fall to the way side. Ahhh... such is life!!! I miss you my dear! I hope you're well!!! All my love!!! XoXo

Slytherin and proud! ♥

Paige1900 on Nov 8, 2017:

I freaking LOVE when Andrew Lincoln and Jeffery Dean Morgan are in scenes together. They are like a sexy love scene waiting for a place to happen. I watched an interview with JDM and he said after he acts in a scene between Negan and Rick, he feels the weird desire to smoke a cigarette. LOLOL

Paige1900 on Nov 8, 2017:

I am slightly disappointed with this season of TWD...you?

dobie256 on Nov 7, 2017:

I smiled when I signed up. Not doing much swapping these days and was delighted to see a well hosted Christmas cards swap. Cheers!
