Comment: Hi! I'm so sorry for the late rating. I thought I did it, but maybe I didn't hit Save? Whatever happened, sorry I'm late. Thank you so much for your great letter and the fun kawaii goodies! I super love the cat stickers. :)
Comment: Thank you so much LavenderSprinkles for the beautiful bracelets and extra postcards! They are beautiful and I especially love the one with the colored stone beads. It was a blessing to be your swap partner. Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Hi Ayesha, I just got this card yesterday (March 14th)! Thank you so much for the cute card and goodies. And yes, I love hosting parties :) My last one was a boxing/wrestling themed party for my boyfriend.
Comment: Thank you so much for the happy mail! Wow, 7 teas. I've already had the chocolate mint! I loved the die cut rose paper you wrote the not on. Thanks also for hosting!
Response: Thank you-that die cut paper was a vintage Hallmark stationery find at a local flea market. I just love it so much and it came with a desk stand to hold the paper in as well. I am glad you liked the swap and thanks for the heart.
Comment: I got your great envelope today and I'm totally thrilled! Thank you for the beautiful and delicious things -I love it! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!ðŸ’•
Response: Awww thank you so much for the heart! I was hopeful that you should love this yummy package! Those ice cream shoppe candies looked delicious. I hope you enjoy everything that I sent. If you ever want a private swap just look me up!
Comment: Got the cute card and goodies in today's mail :) oh yeah tea is always a hit with me :) I use it to flavor my bottle water at work :) Alaska is very nice ! We are starting out with a very mild winter so far this year...usually we are down around -30F by now but we have barely gone passed the -1F mark on the ol' thermometer :) Summers are gorgeous - Fall is my favorite even though it doesn't last long, the colors are wonderful. Winter lasts the longest or maybe it just feels that way haha! it's dark most all day and cold, but we get the Northern Lights to make up for those wicked cold nights. Summer we get the 24 hours of daylight and that makes up for those dark winter days :) Thank you for the great card and goodies :)
Response: Thank you for the lovely information! I appreciate the heart! I am glad you liked the swap!
Comment: Thanks for the tea and note. I hope the minion party was super. I like them too. My granddaughter had a unicorn party for her 5th and will be a unicorn for Halloween. Sheâ€™s unicorn CRAZY! Happy swappingâ¤ï¸
Response: The party didn't go exactly as planned but it turned out pretty good! She was very excited! Unicorns sound cute! Have a great weekend! Happy swapping and thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note and stickers! I was in Girls Scouts when I was younger, and I always enjoyed making crafts and singing campfire songs. Hopefully you're enjoying being a troop leader :)
Response: Thank you for the heart. The suggestions will be useful. Happy swapping.
Comment: Ayesha!! I can't wait to make your recipe!!!!! I will be grocery shopping sometime in the next few days & I will buy the ingredients to make your recipe for my husband and I! :D I will let you know how it turns out! This was a wonderful swap idea! Thank you for the extras too. I also have been meaning to try the anise cookies from your recipes you have linked on your profile! I saved it on my phone!
Response: Hey there! Thanks for your enthusiasm. I am so glad you enjoyed the swap. Please be in touch with more swaps. Happy weekend!
Comment: Hi Ayesha ~ I really liked your note to me and the stationery you wrote it on. It's very cute. :o) Thank you for the goodies in the envelope; much appreciated! Kentucky would be a nice place to visit. There must be a lot of big old trees there.
Response: Thanks for the rating. I always enjoy this type of swap. Yes there are many nice things to view here.
Comment: Thank you, Ayesha for all the fun goodies you sent in my Happy Box! I really had fun going through everything ;+) I love that you sent pens and papers since I use those each day for swaps. Your box was wrapped up so nicely--really a treat!
Response: Thanks for the heart. I am so glad you loved my box. I hope it made your day. I tried to send things you could use. Happy swapping.
Comment: What a spectacular package!!!!!!! Thanks so much!
Response: I am very happy you enjoyed the package. I just threw in a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I am glad that you were well pleased. Have fun using everything enclosed. Happy swapping to you.
Comment: I use a free, crowd sourcing, site for my genealogy that is put out by my church, familysearch.org I like it because they have a lot of the same records that are on the pay sites, like Ancestry, but without having to pay for them. My brother got his DNA done through Ancestry, it confirmed what we knew, we are white XD really, really white.
Response: Hehehe that is how those tests turn out most of the time. I hope that you enjoyed my letter. Have a lovely day and thanks for the tips.
Comment: Thank you for resending. I have talked to the PO and they are going to be more careful about where they deliver my mail. The recipes look delicious, although right now I may substitute blackberries for the strawberries. Thank you for all the tea. Very sweet of you.
Response: Glad you received it finally! I hope you enjoy everything. I have the same issue with mail. I was sent two big bras which belonged to my neighbor. LOL Thanks for the heart and blackberries sounds yummy! We used to grow those and strawberries at my parents. Happy swapping!
Comment: hi, thank you for your letter, i opened it wrong side but could read it whole:)), i do have garden on my balcony, we have about 8m balcony which is great but the heat also does destroy many of my plants and flowers. I iam waiting for my radish to be grown, also some pea, then i have some little trees with canadian blueberries, also blackberry and had cucumber but it got broken due to big wind. Going to seed some more flowers, sometimes i buy litle flowers in pots but they do not last long even we try. It is great to have such a long friendship witht that Czech friend. how did you meet?
Response: Me and my besty met in 2001 on a forum online. We have met in person many times. I am intrigued to hear about your garden. Moles ruined most of my plants. Have to try again next year. Thanks for your message above and heart rating. Have a great season.
Comment: Thank you so much! I especially like the face oil, SPF moisturizer & the Argan oil mascara! It will be fun to experiment with the colorful eye shadows & lipstick since I always play it safe & buy neutrals for myself. Thanks, again :)
Response: Yes, I threw in extras in hopes you would be content. I am glad it worked out well. I love those products as well.
Comment: Thank you so much for the items for Ramadan. I am not Muslim but my daughter's friend is and I remember having to help her not eat during the daylight hours when she was visiting. I can't wait to try out this new culture to me. Thank you!!
Response: Thanks for being a part of this swap. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Ayesha! Thank you for the nice note and sharing how you spent mom's day. It sounded very nice. My mom's day was hectic because hubby wanted to host, so I slaved over a hot stove (lol). Have great weekend!
Response: Thank you for the heart. I hope you enjoyed my letter and hope this coming week is good. I love hosting parties and dinners. Happy swapping.
Comment: Dear Ayesha,
So Bilal ibn Rabah was the first muezzin, as well as one of the first apostles of Muhammad (pbuh)? I loved the sound of the call to prayer when I was in Turkey and Egypt. Thank you for your letter, your film recommendation and your note about prophetic medicine. I use black cumin a lot in my kitchen: in bread dough, in humous and to sprinkle on lentil soup. I also munch on the seeds when I have indigestion. However, I didn't know that it was such a useful medicinal substance, or that oil is pressed from the seed. Your letter arrived smelling delicious! Thanks for joining the swap and sharing your culture with me. Yours, Sonia
Response: Yes, he sure was an important Islamic figure. I am glad you enjoyed. Thanks for hosting these swaps.
Comment: Thank you. The outside envelope was addressed to me, but the note card said To: Dita. So, I don't know if you sent the wrong package...It was a brush, grocery store bag, nail file, candy & an plastic egg.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package full of some lovely goodies. Once I'm feeling my normal self I'm going to have a nice pamper night and paint my toes with the lovely nail varnish you sent. â¤
Response: Hello there. I am glad it arrived safely. It ended up being costlier than expected to ship but it was super fun to put together. I am glad you will have a pamper night. Get well soon! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for a lovely greetings card, that is one of my favorite flowers. It reminds me my late dad who loved them too and we had many in our garden. We call it here, ''platanillo''.
I will send you a local postcard and no need to trade anything but I am always willing for private swapping!! â™¥
Response: Thanks for the heart rating. I am sorry to hear about your dad. Happy to remind you of him though. Have a lovely day!
Comment: I cant thank you enough for the awesome birthday gift you sent!! I love it! What a neat idea to send a stationery kit. And all of those goodies! Sorry I didn't post sooner. I held on a few days before opening. Wish I could give you two hearts!! Love!
Response: Aww this comment takes the cake! I am so happy! I was afraid you'd not like it! I am so glad you enjoyed it! Hope you have a lovely day!
Comment: Thank you for your decorated envelope and really interesting goodies. I like the blossom stamps you chose, they are lovely.
Thanks most of all for your letter. You are right to be frightened. I wish I could tell you not to be, but there is no comfort for me to offer. Please just try to survive this. I promise I am fighting for you.
Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. This swap was very entertaining.
Comment: Before i could post, i already received your happy mail dear Ayesha
ðŸ˜ ðŸ’—. Thank you so much for all the awesomeness!! ðŸ˜. Loved it. I am sending you only 3 items, but they make upto almost 150 grams. :) and plus they're i think something you will surely enjoy ðŸ˜ƒ. Can't wait for you to receive it dear ðŸ’ â˜ºï¸ â˜ºï¸ â˜ºï¸
Response: Thanks for the heart. I am glad you liked what I sent. Happy swapping.
Comment: Thank you so much Ayesha! I loved my sweet little note from you and how you decorated my enive! A mystery tea swap sounds intriguing maybe I'll pm you when I get some time to do something like that. Thanks so much for the yummy teas to. Nice happy mail that put a smile on my face!
Response: Thanks for the rating. I am glad this made you smile. Happy swapping and enjoy the teas.
Comment: What you did is so wonderful! It is sad - one of the things I do when I can is a local church has a once-a-month dinner for the area homeless and poor, and I volunteer there, prepping food, serving, and packing up extra for them to take with them. It's rewarding, but so, so sad. Thanks for sharing!
Response: Yes, it was sad but I am glad my son and I helped out. It is great you also do the same. We all need to help out. Have a great day!
Comment: Hi Ayesha! I received your letter and hope you take comfort in knowing that someone is listening and emphasizes with you! No one has the right to make any other human being feel that they are something less than what they truly are ... a unique individual with a heart and soul. Take care of yourself and do what's best for you =)
Response: Thank you for the heart. I appreciate your kind words. Take care and have a lovely day.
Comment: Hey!! Thank you so much for another awesome swap! I love the purse! So cute and can go with a lot of things! And the goodies you included! I can't wait to try a few of the items! I already am using a couple. :) Yay :D Thank you so much again! I hope you are doing well!
Response: Thank you for the rating. I hope you liked everything. Have a great Summer.
Comment: Thank you Ayesha for the wonderful gifts and tote bag. You are so sweet! Love the tote too! I have a couple more things to add to your "tote" and I'll be mailing it out on Monday -so you can be looking for that next week :) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Have a wonderful EID, darla
Response: Well, I am so glad you loved it. I was unsure of what to send as we are newly swapping together. Glad I selected the right items. Happy swapping and thanks for joining this- it means so much to me.
Comment: I recieved the package! I love the ipsy bag you included! It makes me want to sign back up for that subscription. Lol. I love the cosmetic samples you gave me! I needed hairspray so im stoked to have a mini size. :D Plus I love those cute little stickers you always include! So cute. :D Thank you so much!! It's always a pleasure to swap with you. :)
Response: Glad you liked it! Thank you for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: Sounded like a very nice ride. I had motorcycle in my younger days! Still miss it. Now i ride with someone. All of my kids but 3 have them
Response: Thank you for the heart rating. I hope you had a great weekend. Yeap, I helped pack and bought some gifts for everyone. Maybe it is for the best though because so much is going on in the world at the moment. I would have gone if the baby had her passport but he did not want to apply for her right now. Also, the tickets are over $1000 each and kids do not get a discount after a certain age. Oh, well I will go on my own mini vacay in Cincinnati with my niece and the kids.
Comment: I got the package today!! Thank you so much for all the fun goodies. :) I love that Lipstick Pen! That is so cool!! Plus the chapsticks I will be using real soon and I love all the yummy candies. :) I should be having yours out this coming week. :) Thank you so much!! ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–
Response: Hi Lauren! I hope all is well on your end! I am glad you received the swap and liked it!
Comment: I got your box in the mail today. :) Omg!! So many things I love!! The MAC face powder completely works for my skin tone! I'm so happy. :D And the empty tea bag holders. I am planning a Bridal Shower right now and that works perfectly with our theme! So I will be using them!!! Yay :D Thank you so much!!
Response: I tried to guess by your pic on here for the skin. I hope it turns out well at the bridal shower. Who is getting married? Have fun. I am glad you were pleased.
Comment: â™¥ Thank you for the lovely letter. Until it came I didn't notice there were only the two of us in this swap. I am still at a lose concerning those tiny beads....just how big do they get when you add water? Thanks again for everything.
Response: Oh, they get a nice size. Mostly people add them to vases and they look so pretty. I hope you do enjoy them.
Comment: Thank you for the handmade plastic bag holder. It was really cute. I hope that I will go shopping to get bags to fill it with. I love the color pink so that it is a good deal. Perhaps we could do this again another time.
Response: Thank you. I am glad you liked it. Have a good time.
Comment: Oh my gosh. I finally was able to go through everything. You are amazing!!! You sent me the most amazing beauty products!! I love the lemon hand soap. That is so darn awesome. I'm coveting that lotion. Lol. The MAC lady Gaga lipstick!!! That is epic! :D I love all the lipsticks you included!! I'm so excited to start using them! I already wore the lady Gaga one. :) I also really liked that hello kitty bracelet you included! It's pretty and delicate with the right amount of bling. :) You really knocked it out of the park. I'm so happy. :D Thank you so much!!! A million hearts!
Response: I wanted to blow you away like you always do me. I am glad I was successful. LOL My girls helped me pick it out. I was shopping all over the place. That perfume is made in Dubai. I really love the cute tins. I knew you would like that intricate bracelet. Have fun ðŸŽ‰ with everything. I know you love makeup ðŸ’„ and cute items. Thanks for the heart â¤ rating.
Comment: i have changed this rating to a 5. First you sent me junk and only one thing on the list for this swap that I hosted. Then when I contacted you about it you demanded proof and then said I was judging you based on your religion when in fact I hadn't even looked at your profile so I had no idea what race or religion you were. You argued with me and gave me difficultly about re-sending the swap. Eventually you re-send the swap and sent me the remaining items you were supposed to send in the first place so to be FAIR I am rating you a 5. But you were no doubt a difficult swapper to talk to. Hope you are happy with this 5.
Response: I had alot going on at that time. I had a car accident issue. At any rate, I am glad you gave me the fair rating after my resend. I hope if we swap again it will be a positive experience. I just had some problems at the time we swapped beyond my control.
Comment: Both of your lists are very well thought out! I think you are going to make 2016 your year! Feel free to send me a message on here or an email if you ever need support in reaching your goals, I'm here for you. :)
Response: Thank you so much! I could always use support! Happy swapping!
Comment: Hey! :) I forgot to give you my updated email address, which is the reason why it took me so long to rate! Lol. So sorry about that! It sounded like you were having a wonderful holiday. :) And I love the presents you got for your family! I'll tell you mine when I send you my email. :) I hope you are having a happy holiday!!
Response: Thanks so much! I have been shopping for you! I hope you are well!
Comment: Thank you so much! I love all of my items. I can't wait to try out the hot chocolate! Maybe we can set up another private swap sometime!
Response: My things you made me were so cute! I am very happy to swap with you anytime (again). My mom said the things you gave me were very lovely. I opened it all tonight at the party. Thank you so much!
Comment: I did not receive this swap, however, swapper provided proof she had mailed the swap and had it returned. After multiple emails which I believe bordered on bullying I advised her to keep the swap. Because I was provided proof I am rating appropriately. After reading all the comments and her actions I regret that I have to rate a 5. Swappers beware. I will think long and hard before participating in any swap she is in.
Comment: â™¥ I think there a trend here...2 instead of one. Anything with pasta and cheese sounds delicious to me. I will have to try them both but with meat as you say.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I hope you like the recipes. It seems like the weather will be pleasant for the holidays. I will be in Stonybrook with my brother and his wife. We always have our party there for the past five years. You have a good holiday. May your 2016 be great.
Comment: In many ways my heart broke for you reading your answers. But I could see silvery threads of hope too. My biggest wish for you is that your hopes and dreams for 2016 do come true. Thank you for such a candid response.
Response: Oh sorry that you felt sad. I did not know it was going to do that. I am thankful I was able to share my feelings. It was therapeutic for me. At any rate, may 2016 be successful for you.
Comment: I am very happy with our swap. My doggie loved her toy. I hope your family enjoyed their gifts. Lets do it again around Valentines day...will that be good for you? Sending friendship hugs...get well soon. Sorry to hear of your accident.
Response: Swapping with you is always a pleasure. You all have a great holiday and new year. I will await our next swap. Glad Lacy was happy lol. I hope everyone is well.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome package! :D I haven't gotten through everything yet but I love what I've opened so far! I really love the gold nail tape. I've always wanted to experiment with that but never got around to purchasing it. So I'm so happy to finally have some! :) I love these swaps and hope we can continue to do them. :) Thank you so much again! :)
Response: Ohh Iam so glad that you like what I sent you! I was not sure if I could give you things as good as you give me. I guess we do fairly well at picking things out for each other. I always get my daughter to help since she is young and knows what young people like. Sure, we can do another one in January if you like. I also want to work out a February swap as it is my birthday. Let me know if you want to do 5 wrapped gifts again in January and then 5 again in February!My daughter refers to you as "the kawaii swap lady" and keeps asking when we will swap again. LOL
Comment: Thank you for the handmade postcard :) It's actually kind of cold in Florida, it was in the mid 60's yesterday and im wearing a sweater again today but it will be back in the upper 80's for thanksgiving :) I wouldn't mind trading recipe postcards!
Response: Hello there! I will go to get you a few recipe cards or go through my stash. When I have them I will inbox you. Thank you for the heart. Happy swapping!
Comment: Great tips; thanks! I especially liked the one about "I believe in giving fair chances to swappers who have poor ratings as long as 6 months has elapsed and they have received at least 5 recent 5 ratings. Somebody has to give them a chance in order for them to prove themselves worthy, right?" Yes!
Response: Thank you so much! I appreciate the heart! Good luck in future swaps!
Response: Aside from swabot I am also now going to school to be a gourmet catering professional and cook. I really enjoy the classes so far. I think it will be great to own a restaurant someday or to start my own catering business. I love to cook so much. I finally decided it was time for me to do something that I truly love and enjoy.
Comment: I love the candle you included in this swap! It looks and smells so yummy! :D The eye cream is also awesome. :D I feel so luxurious using it. :) I don't usually get Vogue and I love all those perfume samples! :D This was a great swap. I love these type of swaps. :) Thank you so much!
Response: Yes, that is an expensive eye cream but you deserve it. I hope you enjoy everything. Which swap do you want to do for December? You are my best swapping mate. Always a pleasure my dear!
Comment: Hey :D I finally finished opening all the wrapped surprises! :D This was such an awesome swap. :) I love the bag you put the items in. :D So adorable!!! I feel so spoiled with the beauty products you give me. :D They are so nice and im already using them. :) I would love to do this again in December. :D
Response: I am glad you liked the swap! I am happy you loved the bag-I thought you would as it is ethnic. I am glad you feel spoiled as I do with your kool swaps too. I guess we just know what to buy for each other. LOL I am ready to set up the December swap when you are!
Comment: Thank you so much for the ephemera you sent to me. Love how you decorated the envelope. I am sure I can use everything, I especially liked the stationery, hand made envelopes, the coffee and the washi tape. Take care, Susan.
Response: Thank you for the heart. I hope that you enjoy all it. Happy swapping.
Comment: Thanks for the letter and the cute add-ons. Yes, I like chai tea! I have not tried the pumpkin spice, but it sounds good. Usually the only beverage swaps I get into are the tea ones. I will write a letter back to you soon.
Response: Hello there! I am glad you liked my letter. If you ever want to swap teas let me know. I will eagerly await your respone to my letter. Happy swapping!

I'm really hoping mine reaches you soon...
Please let me know when you do :))
Response: Thank you for the heart. So far nothing came. Really awaiting your package. I am glad you liked everything I sent your way. Perhaps in the future we can swap again.
Comment: I love these myatery yarn ball swaps. :D I actually just finished using the whole yarn ball to make a pouch. :D And all the fun goodies were awesome. :D My absolute favorite was the Elizabeth Mott eyebrow gel. :D It works so great. :) I am totally a fan. :) Thank you so much!!
Response: Thank you for the hearts! You send the best stuff! Swapping with you is awesome every time!
Comment: I love the items you sent me! Very practical items that I am using already. :) Im loving the first aid kit! And I've never tried chocolate toothpaste before. :D I'll be excited when my current toothpaste finishes. :) Thanks again!
Response: So glad it was useful. I tried to send things you can use. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome stuffed envelope! :) My cousin already tore into the cookies. And all the other goodies are awesome as well! :) Thanks so much for swapping with me. :) I would love to do it again. :)
Response: Wow, you actually loved it? The stuff you sent me was 10x better. I also want to do this again if you want to. Just let me know! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for all the awesome stuff! I especially love the bath pouf with soap in it! How cool. My son Jacob is excited to put the Santa window cling on our front door at Christmastime. :-) Wonderful swap, wonderful package to receive! Looking forward to future swaps that are similar.
Response: Thanks for the heart rating and kind words! I tried to send stuff for your son as well as you. I hope that everything is useful for you. I am making #4 swap in October so be on the watch for it. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you soo much for everything! I really love that marker!! I'm a vegetarian too! And I looooveee veggie pizza! The recipe you sent me will for sure be used! I wanna make it right now! I get take and bakes from an amish store about 30 mins from my home. Those are literally the best pizzas ever. I eat at a few local pizza places. My fave is Geezos. They use a vegetable pizza sauce and man is it good. I'm sorry to hear about your stove issues :c I hope all goes well! Thanks again<3
Response: Thanks for the heart. I hope that you like the recipe. It is great that you love the pen. Thanks for joining my swap. Happy swapping.
Comment: I recieved my swap today. Unfortunately all the food items were ruined/crushed and the onion ring mix was ripped and spilled on everything so it ruined most of the paper goods. I was able to save the toothbrushes, tape, and a few other small things but unfortunately most had to be tossed out. I believe the post office took the FRAGILE marking to heart and decided to use this package at the batting cages or something :(
Response: Wow, that is horrible. I guess it had something to do with it having to be rerouted to your new address. I will file a claim with the insurance if you will send me a photo of the damages.
Comment: Oh the whole swap you sent looks so cute - Thank you So very much for the teas - Except for one, I've never had any of those - Can't wait to try them - and - I'll definitely be making that yummy recipe. Thanks again for everything and for arranging this private swap.
Response: Thank you for the heart! I really enjoyed your end of the swap too. I have a new swap up for the public feel free to join. If you ever want to swap again in private then let me know. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the teas and recipe. But my FAVORITE was getting your beautiful envelope! Thanks you so much!
Response: Oh wow that made my day to know that you liked the envelope. I tried to take time and decorate it as pretty as I could. Thanks for the heart and nice words. I hope you join my next one of these swaps. Happy swapping!
Comment: Ayesha, thank you so much for all of the delicious looking recipes! I can't wait to make them for dinner- plus carrot cake is my favorite, so a vegan version is even better! I'm going to try it out soon! :)
Response: Thank you for the heart! I am glad you liked it! Thanks for this private swap!
Comment: Thank you for all the goodies. Love the colorful package. My favorite item is the Avon Skin Softener. I've been an Avon lover since high school and Sweet Honesty has always been a favorite scent. Thanks again.
Response: Awww thank you for the heart! I am so glad you enjoyed your colorful package! I sent Avon specifically because your profile says that you love it! Have a lovely time with the package contents! Happy swapping!
Comment: Hi Ayesha,
Received your swap today. Even tho it was late, it was nicely done. Thanks for all the goodies: tea, cocoa, notepads, treat bag! I liked your handmade envelope, too. Because this was a thick envelope, it did not mail for 2 stamps. I received a postage due notice as it mailed for the parcel rate. Next time, please check with the PO before mailing a thick envelope. Just want to save you some issues with other swappers who might not be as understanding. Valerie
Response: Oh, I am so sorry. Did you want me to reimburse you? The post office told me it was enough. I apologize and I am so sorry.
Comment: Beautiful and unique, I am going to put the picks in my pencil cup at work to brighten up my desk :) Love your handmade butterfly, she will be an embellishment on a papercrafting project and I will be sure to enjoy the cocoa and tea, thank you!
Response: Hello. I am so glad you were pleased with this swap. I am also glad it arrived safely as it was a bit fragile. I hope it brightens your desk. Happy swapping and thanks for the heart!
Comment: Boy I could use some Hot Soup we are getting Sleet here in NE Corner of Ohio just a little bit ago.(4:15 pm) and its 38 degrees..burrrr. I have some pumpkins in the Garage... Nice Recipe Cards with the lady eating Chocolate...! ! !
Response: Yes, soup sure hits the spot on cold evenings. We enjoy chili here when it is cold. I hope you enjoyed this swap. Thank you for the heart. Happy swapping.
Comment: I loved the bookmark. I'd like to know how did you do the back stamping.It's beautiful!! Thank you very much for the nice envelope with the post stamps and the card. I loved all!!
Response: So glad you loved everything! You basically just stamp it and then you apply embossing sprinkles and heat it with a heating tool (similar to a dryer). Check youtube for more details on embossing. Thank you for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for being so thoughtful. I will be sipping my hot chocolate and tea later on this evening. I am the most excited about this recipe. It sounds delicious. I'm intrigued with the hard-boiled eggs in it. I have a chicken on my shopping list so I can try this. I have ghee and all the spices on hand. Cant wait! ðŸ˜Š
Response: Thank you for the heart. LMK if the recipe is to your liking. Happy swapping.
Comment: Hi Ayesha, I did and I love them both and can use them too! I am sorry I didn't get back to you soon, we had a storm and kids had friends over, yick ~ they are on vacation this week. And we had our grandbabies over too! Thank you again so much!! XO Kelly
Response: Hello! Thank you for replying promptly! I appreciate the heart rating!
Comment: Love it all, especially the magnets and cute little altoid tin! -- 01/17/14 I wrote that and had it saved but not posted. Sorry! I took a swapping break and am now back and double checking that I rated and was sent past swaps. Sorry again!
Response: Thank you for finally rating me! It is better late than never! Welcome back to swap-bot!
Comment: Jazakilllah for the lovely Eid presents. I'm excited to try the teas but I'm fasting for the six days of Shawwal today so I can't try them until Iftar time!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the package! I tried my hardest to get things you'd like. Have a great fast for the remainder of Shawwal. Insha'Allah you will enjoy the teas when you get to taste them. I am glad you received it so quickly! Thank you for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: Ayesha.....Thanks so much for the cute beach tote..I will definitely get some use out of it, since I live on the Atlantic Ocean (in Central Florida) and work in Cocoa Beach...thank you again!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the nice things you sent to me! =)
Response: Wow, I am so excited to hear that you finally received my package! I was starting to get worried! Thank you for the heart! I hope you cats are happy! I really enjoyed putting together this swap!
Comment: I'm very very sorry about this rating :-( For those who wish to swap with Ayesha, she's not a flaker. This swap was a very unfortunate one and went lost twice, so I have to rate a 1 (after being in contact with Swap-bot admin) because I've never received anything, but I'm sure you did send it and you were in good faith.
Response: This is from January. I had sent it twice and have mailing proof. The post office was at fault. I tried my best to get the swap to her. I offered to send a third time but it seemed it was still not going to reach her. So, she decided to rate me this way. Unfortunately this looks like a new swap but it is actually from many months ago. Please check my overall ratings before deciding to not allow me in other swaps. I am very sad after paying $60 that she did not receive my package. I had put so much thought into it.
Comment: Thank you!! Please tell your daughters they did a fantastic job in helping you put it together!! Loved it all!
Response: Aww I was so afraid you'd not like it! I am so happy to hear that you loved it! That made my day! I will tell them that you loved it and they will be so happy! Happy swapping and thank you for the heart!
Comment: Yes, you did hit the nail on the head for this swap. Thank you so much for the Polish Cookbook. Reading some of these recipes brought back memories of my grandmother making some of these. I am going to have to try and make some next week when I am in Massachusetts with my children. You definitely deserve a heart for this one. Thank you so much. Shirley
Response: Thank you for the heart! I am so glad you were well pleased! I always feel good when people like what I send! You enjoy that cookbook and have fun cooking up some delicious meals! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the sweet Mother's Day card and strawberry wash gel. That was very kind of you. I wished you could have seen my face when i saw the cow return address labels that you included. I thought this girl is an angel and we show be able to include an angel rating along with the hearts. I surely would have posted one for you. With such a small gesture you have blessed me immensely. makes me wonder why people in relationships can't bless each other in the same ways. Hey, we could call it Swapbot Relationships. now I am rambling. thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am blessed!!! Blessings, ellie
Response: Aww you are so sweet. I am glad that I was able to brighten your day. It is God who blesses us and often He chooses earthly people to assist in these matters. So, maybe for a day I was selected to put a smile upon your face! That makes me feel good because I am always trying to touch people in positive ways. I hope you enjoyed everything! I also hope you had a great Mother's Day! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Got my prize today!! Cool old cookbook, you picked me out something perfect. I love it. Thank You so much, thank you for sending something prefered from looking at my profile!
Response: Aww that made my day. I was so sick today and after seeing that you were happy with the swap-I feel a little bit better. I am so glad you were well pleased! Thanks so much for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful teas. I am looking forward to trying one of your teas from India; the tea bags smell so divine. I find the card you sent so amusing since I really like cats.
Response: I am very glad you liked the swap! I am happy you were well pleased! Enjoy it all! Thank you for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the cake recipe. It does sound delish. This will be going with me to the next potluck.
Response: I am glad you were pleased! I know that it is a great potluck dessert because we take it to our holiday parties often! I hope you love it as much as we do! Thank you for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: Hiya Ayesha. The package arrived safely this morning. I just wanted to THANK YOU for the lovely scarf and fun socks. I specially liked the scarf... it is very vibrant and feminine... it is perfect. If I had seen it myself, I would have bought it!!!!!
This was my first swap for clothing items and having had such a positive reply, I think I will venture in more swaps like this one.
MERCI and Happy new year!!!!!
Response: Wow, I am very happy that you were well pleased! I did not know if you would like it or not! I am so glad that you loved it! You have a wonderful New year too! Enjoy the scarf and socks! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the great package of gifts. I can't wait o get to using all the bath goodies and I'm excited to try the teas, especially the Roobios Chai. Are the crystals, in the little red bag, bath salts?
Response: I am glad you liked everything! Yes, the red organza bag contains homemade bath salts! Enjoy everything!
Comment: Thank you SO much for your wonderful package. I feel so spoiled! I took out the little Xmas stationary pad (already wrote a note to my friend on it) and the rest of the giftbag will go under the tree. ;) A big thank you and happy holidays to you!
Response: Awww, I am so glad I was able to spoil you! I really enjoyed this swap! I love to shop and give gifts to others! You have a great season! Happy swapping!
Comment: OMG - did you read my profile? I would never mark you down pleeeeease, next time read profiles. I know it was senders choice but maybe stickers, collages, pictures would have been better. By the way' cookies came in crumbs. Thanks for your understanding,
Response: Thank you for rating me still. Also, for the heart. I am so sorry for my error. I have had a rough month. Forgive me please.
Comment: Loved the purse/bag!! That is awesome and all the goodies!! My boyfriend loved it and said. all she had to do was put a pack of gum in there and the bag was enough!! :) Thank you!!!
Response: Aww you just made my day! I am so happy! I am more than glad you received it! So much of my mail has been getting misplaced in the mail system. I really was worried you would not like the bag because it is recycled. I am so so so happy that you liked it! Thanks for the heart! I am very glad to hear your boyfriend loved it too!I hope you love it and enjoy it as much as I did! I took it to Pakistan with me and that was the only time I used it! So, it has been around the world on my travels!

Response: Hahaha just imagining the dog jumping around! That's great that you and your dog can enjoy it together!

I look forward to us swapping together again in the future. Thank you for the heart! Happy swapping!
Comment: thank you for the dishcloth. I do like it very much. I am new to crocheting too. I have been working on one of those crazy animal hats right now. I learned to knit when I was a little girl , but never learned to crochet.till now. ha ha

Comment: Thank you soooo much! <3
I love the scarf, and all the other little extras you sent. I'm excited to check out the amish recipes. My husband's grandparents were Amish, so this is especially wonderful to receive, to learn more about their ways. :)
Response: I thought so by the last-name (the Amish). I am so happy you feel pleased with the swap. I love Amish food myself. Have fun! Let's swap again soon!
Comment: Sorry for not commenting >____< thank you so much for all the items! I can't wait until my god daughter gets a little older to give her the coloring book/stickers/butterfly! Loved everything else also! Thank you! :)
Response: Thank you for the heart! I hope you like it! I also hope she will like it when she can use it!
Comment: what a great swap! To be honest.. I just arrived back from work having a really bad mood! :( However ... seeing and opening your evelope and presents made me instantly happy! :) Thanks for the nice things! and the extras! Thanks for organizing this swap!
Response: Awww....you just made my day too! I am so happy that I brightened your day! Wow! That makes me feel pleasure in my heart! Thank you for the lovely rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the cute heart adhesives.. those are to die for..lol... and I love the tinkerbell stickers too... she is such a lil dainty gal..lol... Thanks for being my partner in the swap.. take care and happy swapping
Response: Thank you for the heart! I am so glad you liked everything! Enjoy the hearts and stickers!
Comment: Debated over giving a 3... a two inch sticker of Hello Kitty on the front of an envelope with no other theme-ing did not make it a "cartoon character envie" in the spirit of the swap. I'm sorry and do not wish to be hurtful. Technically it does have a "cartoon" on the front so I rate you a 5.
Response: It had other characters on it too. Maybe they fell off in the mail? It had Mickey and others on it before I mailed it also had My Little Pony on it. I am sorry you were disappointed. I will try to do better next time.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty stamps : D Im sorry for rating you so late. My mother passed away recently and I was not able to be here much. I wish I can swap with you more in the future but not right now , sorry I havent got enough time at the moment because of the reason I mentioned above. I will let you know when I get more time later. Have a wonderful weekend.
Response: Thank you for the heart! I hope you are doing okay. I know this is a very hard time for you. I can surely understand that you are unable to swap until later. Just take your time and get through this. May this time be made easier for you. Take care of yourself.
Comment: Solved the mystery - you sent them to my parents' house! (My fault for being confusing about addresses!) Luckily I was there over Christmas. I love the labels themselves and thank you for taking the trouble to make them for a different address than the one I live at (sorry again for being complicated). They are great labels and I shall enjoy using them. Thanks! :D
Response: Ohhh! I am so glad you like them! I tried my best to please you! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I received my envelope - was nicely decorated, liked the tea, but not really impressed with the rest. A lot of scraps that I would consider junk by all means... teacher stickers, stickers stuck to unoriginal backings, cheap lipgloss that does not indicate ingredients (for all I know could be toxic) and no seal (for all I know could be used). Will be tossing the makeup - really expected more from a swap host; doesn't appear you read my profile at all. Giving you a 5 because at least you sent something.. but if there was a 4 I would give you that. I would personally be ashamed to send such junk to my partner...
Comment: Thank you for making my first swap on this site an amazing adventure. I love all of the cute things you enclosed. I think that the little skin creams are very useful. There were so many cute things inside!
Response: Thank you for the heart! I am so happy that you loved everything! That makes my day!
Comment: Please tell Fatimah that ilove love love my craft with my name on it. I can never find anything with my name on it. Thanks so much.
Response: Aww she is so happy that you love it! She really put all of her heart into making that dreamcatcher just for you. It was not an easy craft to master. Thank you so much for the heart and swapping with me again! :-)
Comment: Hi Ayesha! :D
I just got you package and I want to say thank you very much for all the cute little things you bought me.
I'm feeling kind of sick today so I'm doing my best not to fall in the temptation of eating those peanut butter snacks! All teas you sent me look so delicious, I can't wait to try the one with blueberry.
The postcards were cute and I definitely loved the 2 souvenir items! The paper note is so cool and the little bookmark is so useful because all bookmarks I have are quite big and none of them fits in my smaller books. The one you sent me is gorgeous and is already being used :)
Again, thank you so much. This package is extra special to me since it was the very first package I ever received through SwapBot and I'm giving you a heart for it. Hope to swap with you again soon. Take care and happy swapping! :D
Response: Aww I am glad that your first experience was a positive one! I am so glad that you liked everything too! Thank you so much for the heart! :-)
Comment: verry lovely,you are a natural jawelery maker i think,sooo lovely wearing it tonight to go to dinner @friends thanx again soooo lovely if u ever wanna do a pruivate swap plz contact me hugs evi
Response: Thank you! I am so glad you did enjoy it! Thank you for the heart! I would love to swap anytime just ask me! :-)
Comment: Ayesha - first of all, LOVE the card! so cute! Also, Thank you for sharing your relationship with me. I'm sure being so far away from him is a lot to handle, but love knows no boundaries. Bless you and yours, and thank you for a wonderful swap! <3
Response: Thank you for the heart and I am so happy that you liked it! :-)
Response: Why did you give me a 3? I could have corrected it if you did not like it. I did send the recipes and surprise. I thought 3's are if I do not send the items as directed. I sent what I was supposed you may not have liked it. I could have fixed my error.
Comment: I just received your lovely stuffed
envelope. I don't know what's in it
yet. I'm saving the fun of opening
it for later but I KNOW already that
you deserve a heart because it's just so incredibly heavy and stuffed!
Response: Thank you I hope you like it! Thank you for the hearts dear! :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a fabulous package. The kids and I are excited to try all the new snacks and tea. Thay have become tea drinkers since our friend from Europe always visits. The hanky is so cute. Wonderful swap. Hugs & Hearts, Mona
Response: Aww thank you for the hearts! I am so pleased that you loved my package dear! :-)
Comment: Ayesha! You got my name for both the Coffee swap and the Tea swap? How cool is that?! I love it. The Coffee one makes me hungry - I see coffee, milk, donut, cookie, cupcake ... Yum! I love all your ATCs and they are extra special because they were drawn and colored by you. These are the first self-drawn ATCs I've ever gotten. I love your envelopes too and the little pink watermelon you drew on the outside of the mailing envelope. Thank you so much! Many hearts! -summerhawk/Kim
Response: I stayed up late making those just for you! I noticed the time you had put into my recipe cards so I wanted to do the same for you! Thank you for your kindness and the hearts!
