Comment: 06-23: I contacted you the middle of MAY and let you know I had not received this. You said you would resend it soon (May 19th). That was last communication I had with you. I sent another PM on June 2nd asking for an update and never heard back. I'd still love to receive this swap in the mail. I will gladly change the rating when/if I receive it.
Comment: I have been tring to track the comformation # u gave me...But to early to track it cause it was just sent out. I received your journal today...Thank you for the blank journal it's nice...I will be enjoying reading your journal tomorrow while I wait to get some test done....I would have rated you a 5 + but u marked u sent it May 16, when you just sent it out June 17...U should have just told me.
Comment: Robyn, when I opened your package it felt like Christmas. You really outdid yourself. The paper, the stickers, the rub-on's the memo pads, the recipe cards, the bookmark/cards, the Christmas stickers, the chipboard and the kits! I can't wait to make some cards. I used the matchbox kit as a template and cut one out with some red & white paper and made a matchbox for my friend for her birthday. She is going to love it! I just started making altered matchboxes. I've made 3 small ones so far and now my first one big enough to hold ATC's which is what I'm going to put in the one I made my friend. I wish I could give you multiple hearts. I really love everything. Thank you, thank you!!
Response: what a wonderful comment to find waiting for me, thankyou! I like getting packages that make me feel like its Christmas, so I try to do that for my partners. So glad you enjoy using the kits already! Enjoy all the rest and thanks again for the great rating!
Comment: Thanks for the useful coupons; you obviously read my wishlist. Heart is also for the handmade envie. When I get my sewing machine fixed I may try this myself.
Response: yes - I always check profiles and try to match as best I can. Hope you have better luck with your machine, I have a super cheapie craft one and it jammed after each side I'd sew, but I still love the effect and homemade envies, thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hearts, hearts and more hearts! I have only flicked through the journal but I can't wait to sit down and read it. Your art works are funky, I love the way you made pockets out of the pages and the whole thing is visually appealing and tactile. Thankyou for putting so much time and effort into this journal for me (and I am sorry about the high postage cost you incured sending it all the way down here).
Response: your response is why I do journal swaps - thanks so much for the kind words and rating. As for the postage, that doesn't bother me - its all fun to share the journaling experience; hope you enjoy the rest of it!!
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for all the goodies! Everything is so nice and I can't wait to use everything. All the blues are beautiful! thank you thank you thank you!
Response: well, you said blue like the ocean was your favorite and that anything I sent would be fine, was a little worried but so glad you are happy with everything I sent! Have a great week, thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks so much for sharing your January with me! I loved the journal. It was fun reading about how you spent the snow days since I got the same snow storm a few days later! I laughed so hard at the snippet you included about the old lady on the witness stand!
Response: glad you got a good laugh, my sister-in-law sent the old lady snippet to me an I had to put it in a few of my journals as it was just too good not to share! Thanks for the heart rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for you delicious candies, can't wait to taste all of them! Twix is only one we have here in my country, so I'm very excited to taste these new candies! :) Thank you so much!!! You made my day! :)
Response: so glad to hear that I sent mostly items you do not have, hope you do like them, enjoy and thanks for the heart!
Comment: I can't wait to read it all the way thru!! I do hope you are doing better, life does get crazy and out of control sometimes! I am so proud to say I now have 2 of your wonderful journals!!! Thanks so much for doing a wonderful journal for me!!
Response: Karen, thanks so much for your kind words and mostly your patience on this swap! I knew you - of all people - would understand and I really appreciate it! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and that our next swap is more timely from me.! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC. Very nice design and incorporation of pretty embellishments. I did want to let you know that the word chip was broken in shipping. This type of ATC will not survive going through the postal machines. The envelope must be marked "hand-stamp only" and requires 64 cents postage. Just for future reference. I fixed the chip and will enjoy having the card in my collection.
Response: thank you for letting me know and I am so very sorry, I have never had an ATC get destroyed in anyway in the mail, but I will take you recommendations to heart! Thanks again.
Comment: WOW! I wish I could give you several hearts for this ATC! Very evident you worked hard on it! Loved the 3-D and the coloration of gold and creams are always a win win!!!! Thank you for this lovely ATC!! :)
Response: thank you so much for the great comment - you made my day - actually my whole weekend!!
Comment: Hi Robyn! I just returned from my dream trip to Africa and was greeted by a bin full of junk mail and bills and your beautiful ATC! Your envelope of goodies and your lovely ATC eased my transition pains. Thanks and have a great day!
Response: WOW!! Africa - hope it was all you had dreamed about. Glad my ATC's and goodies were there waiting for you - thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Thanks for the kind comment! Haha yes I am very lucky to have such a collection, I love to swap with you sometime! Once I have a steady job..after all my schooling I will definitely be go SB all year around :)
Response: good luck in school and thanks for the rating
Thanks so much for your amazing and lengthy comment. We do have a lot in common. I would love to participate in a journal or Etsy antique swap with you. Anytime. I am adding you as my friend too. xoxo
Response: thanks so much, sounds great!! Happy to have you as a new friend too!
Comment: Thanks for the great message about your best friend! It sounds like you two have a very strong bond. PS - When I checked your response, I noticed I didn't give you a heart for some reason, when I meant to. So here you go! :)
Response: Yes, she is like a sister to me. Thank you so much for the heart rating !
Comment: Thanks for such a wonderful email, isn't it amazing that when friendship involved distance really is not an issue. I went through heaps of moves with my best friend, who actually followed for a little while, but it was through writing and email that our friendship endured. Happy swapping.
Response: glad to hear you also have a friendship that has endured through correspondence, thanks for the nice PM you sent as well and the heart rating.
Comment: Thanks for the e-mail! You said you thought you'd drug it out, but I loved it. I actually got a nice little glimpse into your life. Thanks for the movie rec and I hope you and your family have fun at the convention and your husband's tennis game! Tell him that a complete stranger wishes him luck LOL.
Response: glad you enjoyed the read! Thanks for the good luck to my hubby!
Comment: Wow oh wow thank you so much for such an incredible package! Your note was so sweet, and I love all of the cards, little papers, tags, and my nephew is going to adore the stickers! You are the best!!!
Response: so glad you liked everything, when i saw the note on your nephew I was glad i still had those stickers. Have a great week!
Comment: This was a amazing journal! Wow I truly enjoyed it, Thanks so much!!! Karen
Response: so glad you liked it Karen. Wish there was i way I could give you your 5 and heart, not just posting it to your messages - but with the whole swap flaking except for us, I don't know what else to do. Thanks for swapping!
Comment: Oh my gosh,, I got the BEST stuff,, so many thing I just love lotsa glitz and sparkle,, way more than the $10 I know but I love it all... I love your handwriting and the magazine page on the front of the envelope was such a great idea, I am going to streal it! You had fun putting this together, I can tell.. Thanks again, Polly
Response: When i read your profile and saw just HOW MUCH you like sparkle, knew I would be sending a lot, plus I LOVE scrapbooking and spreading the joy of it. Thanks for that great comment!
Comment: I am beyond speachless, This is the most special envelope I have ever gotten, for some one who has never met me you manage to find some of my most favorite things and make a treasured envelope filled with love, I am tearing up! You made my day. Thank you!
the paper dolls I am going to laminate and keep forever, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Response: thank you for that wonderful note! So glad you loved the envelope! As soon as I came across the paperdolls I knew they were going to you. : ) Have a great week!
Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE the envie! I can't pick my favorite thing because I'll use it all, but I REALLY liked the bookmark. Did you make it??
Response: Glad you liked everything. No, I did not make the bookmark, rec'd from another swap and since i do not use bookmarks or collect them I thought it appropriate to pass it along to someone who might. She did a lovely job on it.
Comment: Robyn, I received your package today. A big thank you seems not enough for your generosity. I do crafting in Ukraine with ladies and we cannot buy such materials here. It will be my joy to share some of them in my classes. Thank you for your kindness. God bless, Coleen
Response: Coleen, thank you, your comments are very sweet and greatly appreciated. I am so glad this package will be enjoyed by so many. Have a wonderful weekend of crafting!
