Comment: What a wonderful kit! I loved the travel theme! I just returned from a trip to Denmark, Sweden and Germany and was happy to find this package waiting for me. I am excited to use everything. Those were an awesome collection of notecards and the letter writing papers were great too. Loved it all. Postxards... post its and stickers and pen and pencil. The packaging was exactly what I used to send my partner. I bought the letter writing kit at Michael's and took out their set and filled it with my own. Lol. I just posted round one. So I hope you will join it too. http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/265286
Comment: Thank you so much for this amazing swap. It was so much fun to open all of those cat themed things. I enjoyed each and every bit of it. I will reply soon. I am a little bit behind so please be a bit patient with me.
Comment: I love this kit! n.n From the blue polka dot pencil pouch, the stickers, hedgehog letters, pencils and marker pens and envelopes, etc etc. Loved it! I don't imagine the swaps getting old either. :) O had a lot of fun shopping and putting it together so I hope to do future swaps, as well. I'm sorry the humidity is so bad atm; growing up in FL, I am part fish (or mermaid ^.^) and feel the lack of water in my air if I journey somewhere not coastal. :/ I hope you stay well and have a great time camping! Best wishes, Sara
Response: Hi Sara,
So glad you liked the pen pal kit! I definitely want to visit Florida someday - the beaches there look awesome!
Comment: I loved all of the special planner kit supplies you sent. l love the bird stickers. Very pretty and victorian looking. I love the owl washi tape and its coordinating tapes. The sticky notes are very pretty. Im using the pretty decorative paper clips now. Thank you for all the great goodies!!
Response: You are welcome! The bird stickers are my favorites.
Comment: Hello Maria. Thank you for the great swap! It is soooo crazy I have the same paper-pack and I made my folder and cards with the same paper, only I used the darker colors and your envelopes look a lot neater than mine! LOL Thank you Happy Swapping <3
Response: Hi, Wow, that is so funny! I love that paper pack though - I think the colors and pattern are amazing and the double sided paper is always awesome for envelopes. Thanks!
Comment: Thanks for the note! I hope you are able to get all your traveling and camping in! Something to always look forward to... Happy swapping!
And thank you for the sticker sheet! :) Very appreciative of your thoughtfulness.
Comment: thank you for the fun email! Love Actually is one of my favorite movies ever, it gets me every time. I also enjoyed reading a little about your Swedish festivities, they sound like a blast! Happy holidays to you!
Comment: Maria, thank you for the Christmas card. I was wondering how do you make your glug? Shirley
Response: Hi! I buy the bottle of glogg from Cost Plus and then I mix it with red wine and heat it up on the stove. There are small glogg mugs that you should use for this and you put almonds and raisins at the bottom of the cup and fill the glogg on top. Mmm, so good!
Comment: So many cute items -I can't wait to start crafting. I am excited to try the tea - ginger is one of my favorites. Thank you for your thoughtful gift.
And that is awesome that you and your boyfriend like to binge shows and play games, too. The last game we played was on Thanksgiving - Pandemic. Take care!
Response: Hi, so glad you liked everything and it is great to know you can use it too! Hope you like the tea - I love ginger too!
Comment: I got your nice package in the mail today, Maria. Thank you! The autumn scavenger hunt was a fun swap. I'll enjoy using these little decorations around the home and for the upcoming holiday of Thanksgiving. Thanks for the little extra as well.
Response: You are welcome - hope you got to use it!
Comment: Thank you for the cute goodies. That is so funny that you were watching the Red Wings v. Blues game while doing swaps!! What a small world. I imagine you were happy with the way that one turned out. lol You are right, hockey is AWESOME!!! I am watching the Blue play the Stars right now as I go through my swap-bot mail. Go BLUES!! :-)
Response: Since the Blues aren't playing the Red Wings, I will also say Go Blues! LOL.
Comment: Oh my goodness I loved your letter! I plan on making penpal related videos like unboxing packages or putting together mail, thanks for asking! also thank you for the note cards and the adorable bird tag! so cute! happy swapping!
Response: That sounds awesome! I will have to check those videos out. :)
Comment: Oh-I see you like black cats too! Cute address label! Thanks for the happy mail goodies! It does get a little chilly on my craft porch in winter but I have a little heater at my feet to make it cozy and on sunny days it is plenty warm! Thanks for swapping!
Response: That porch sounds so nice - it makes me want one. I do love black cats and have a very spoiled one of my own.
Comment: Maria, Very cool envelope, I keep making mine lopsided but I'm working on it! I love the note and the way you packaged it! The note cards are fantastic! Local things are great to share and recieve! Thank you for making my day!
Response: So happy to hear you liked it. It is always nice to support local artists and the items are more unique and not so mass produced. :)
Comment: Dear Maria,
Guess what I was cooking when your post arrived? Pumpkin soup! Thank you for your lovely letter. I really enjoyed reading about the field-to-fork initiative and your crafting plans. The sealable barley notecard and your golden wheat notepaper are just delightful. And the paper scraps are sure to come in useful. Thank you for being my swap partner. Yours, Sonia
Response: I am so glad you liked everything. Pumpkin soup sounds delicious! Happy fall. :)
Comment: Hi Maria, Thanks so much for this awesome package! I definitely know what you meant about the envelope being covered, but I can tell that you worked hard on it and it is beautiful underneath. Also, thank you for package things in 3s. Now I can share this Halloween goodness with all my boys. Really appreciate it, and the handmade card. Happy Halloween!!
Response: You are so welcome and glad you could see at least a little of the envelope behind all those post office stickers. LOL. I am thrilled you can share this with your boys! :)
Comment: Hi Maria! TY for the letter-I agree your post-a-note did make me think of fall and it has gotten cool here, so really thinking chill in the air! LOL! Did you finish your book and continue to enjoy it? I enjoy nature but would miss technology (maybe!) I think! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Hi! Yes, I did finish the book and I really enjoyed it. Happy fall!
Comment: We had a 90 degree day on Saturday! But come Monday it's been about 70 with a lovely breeze. I do like the sound of rain, but hate when it is all wet, especially if I have to go out in it! Enjoy hockey and hearty soups!
Response: It rained here today and I loved it! Made a stew this weekend, which was so good.
Comment: I love everything thank you so much. It was a welcome surprise in the mail today. Maybe we could swap pocket letters after I feel well enough. Having hip reconstruction surgery on Friday . Thanks again happy swapping.
Response: I would love to swap pocket letters when you feel up to it. Sorry to hear you are having surgery - hope everything goes well.
Comment: Your package arrived today and it's so lovely! Thank you so so much for taking the time to go and find a natural treat! I know how difficult this can be. I'm pretty sure my little ones will love everything. As soon as they return to their aviary. They fled in terror when I put the toys inside. ^^; They're a bunch of scaredy cats. XD Greets to you and Amelia!
Comment: Love, Love, Love it all! Thank you so much for everything!
Response: You are welcome! I want to go back and get more of the pouches - they can be so useful for many things and they are so cute. I love this swap - so much fun and so many different items every time.
Comment: Hello Maria,
Thank you for the lovely purple stationery kit I really like all the items you sent me and look forward to using them all in the near future. One of my favorite items are the cards you sent me. It is really great how you were able to find so many things in purple that could belong in a Stationery Kit. Thank you again for a GREAT Kit.
Response: You are so welcome - I had a lot of fun hunting for purple items and since it is one of my favorite colors too, I could get some stuff for myself as well :)
