Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful valentine mini pocket letter--the cards are so cute, and OMG--you had me drooling over your valentine's dinner! (and tiramisu is my very favorite dessert!) What a great partner!
Comment: Having a very bad day, (realizing one of our cats used the artificial tree as a sprinkling post--and now we need to go purchase another tree)..... I decided to open your box this evening. And I sure glad I did! I love everything. I plan to use one of the bath bombs tonight to relax. And my husband already placed the coffees on agenda to try in the morning. And I really needed the chocolates. The rose candle can certainly calm me down and take me to a spring day. You really did a wonderful job and I can see you put a lot of thought into it.. Thank you so very much! Happy Holidays.
Comment: OMG! I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful things you sent me. I love love love the hand painted hair flower, its gorgeous!!!! I love the packaging of everything. The candy will be yummy. The pumpkin person statue will be on permanent display - love it! I love the skeleton, the bracelet, everything!!! Love the invitation and the card as well! Thank you so much I hope we can swap again in the near future!!! You deserve a 10 for an outstanding swap!!!
Response: I am so happy you enjoyed everything. :) I tried my best to make it special and it brings me joy when my swap partners like what I send. Happy Halloween!
Comment: How many 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 can I give you?? Thanks so much for all the special Halloween magic!! You really went above and beyond!!!! It will all fit perfectly in my October daily book. Thanks again. Happy Halloween!!
Comment: Holy moly! Such a wonderful package!!! The little baggie that the teas are in is so cute-I've never seen something like that before. And the washi tape is so pretty! It's funny that you sent the popcorn because I just bought some of the same brand to try yesterday. 😁 Thanks for such a wonderful swap!!!!
Response: You're very welcome, I hope you enjoy everything! It was fun swapping with you and putting your package together!
Comment: Thank you for the great bottle of goodies! I wish there was a way to give you more hearts! You really did an outstanding job with all of the goodies. I love the local information on Fort Stanwix. I am a history nerd so I appreciate things like this. You really made my day! Thanks so very much!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! It was a lot of fun stuffing that bottle full of goodies. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful basket of goodies! I love the lip balm and notebook, the socks are adorable, and the candy is always appreciated. I finished shopping for your basket this evening, so I'll have it packaged up and ready to ship soon :)
Comment: Thanks for the gifts (which I am not opening until the holiday is upon us). My husband and I don't have much family left around, so my gift exchanges with friends (and swapbot) are it for me. My husband and I started a "tradition" where we each spend $30 on 6 different gifts for each other. So shopping is at Walgreen's, the Dollar Store, etc. Love the Elf card. Merry Christmas.
Comment: I am currently enjoying the delicious tea you sent me. I am so jealous everyone is finding these wonderful fall teas that I cant find in my stores. Thanks for sharing it with me. Happy Halloween!
Comment: hello! I just picked up your package from the post office and Im DYING to open all the little gifts! they are wrapped so cute!
going to do my best to wait untill Halloween
but no promises heehee n_n
Comment: Love your pocket letter, Susan!! So many skulls and ravens - it's like you read my mind!! (Or maybe my profile!!) Everyone of the front pockets are so beautifully decorated- as much detail as atcs! And love the washi tape and ribbon on the edge-just gives it a nice finished touch! Thank you so much for this beautiful swap!
Comment: You brought me to tears with this one! I loved everything and the Hello kitty paper set it off.... It is so pretty and with fall coming it will be just right to carry around with me.... Straight into my little tote it goes!!!! Thank you so much for taking your time and making it for me!!!! 100 HEARTS
Response: You're very welcome! I had fun putting it all together for you, so happy that you love it!
Comment: Ahhhh! I wish I could give you many hearts (and stars) -- thank you so much for your thoughtful package of happy mail, Susan! I loved your adorable address label, the vintage-style bubble gum-blowing girl and sock monkey stickers, strawberry sticky note pad, festive balloons and streamer-adorned gel pen, plaid pencil, notecards, owl list paper, lovely pink stationery, fragrant organic tea (love Trader Joe's! I am happy there is one finally opening near me this fall), washi samples, and the kawaii note paper you chose for your message :D I look forward to using everything soon and hope our paths cross again <3
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! I love taking my time to put things together for others, and it makes me smile to see that you enjoyed it so much! :)
Comment: Your sweet lucky parcel package was definitely worth the wait! I love how you packaged it in the big egg and have already thoroughly enjoyed the M and M's! Thank you for everything! Hope you are feeling better. :)
Comment: Thanks so much Susan, for the super cute poo stickers and bracelet! Lol the name just cracks me up! I'm currently on a diet, so I can't eat the candy (will give to my girls). But I'm looking forward to trying the tea.
It's Easter morning and I'm opening my wonderful basket. Each layer offers a new and fun surprise. Thank You! Happy Easter!
......Box arrived today! I'm tucking it away until Easter. Just wanted you to know it came ...and the postal clerk loved the decorated tape. :)
Comment: Every one loves a love story and yours was beautiful! I hope you get back to Salem I would love to go there someday. Thank you for all the extras My husband and I have been married 42 years in April so don't give up on any spat we have had quite a few but it has been worth it Hugs Sheryl-Kay
Comment: Oooh i can barely wait for christmas eve... But i will, i will!!! I will come back after i open my presents but i had to tell younow how excited i am to have them (and the extras for now... Thank you!) I've put them on the little tiered platter in my living room and they look so pretty!! (Edit 12/24: thank for everything... I love it all, even the card is perfect. That racoon zipper pouch is so cute! I'm eating the chocolate now
:-) YUM, i can't wait to try the lip balm (my daughter swears by it but I've never tried it! And honeysuckle??mmmmmm!), the notebook and cards are the icing on the cake. Thank you!!)
Comment: Susan, you did an AWESOME job on this swap. The daughter was sitting by when I opened it and vultured nearly everything as it came out of the box. lol I think I managed to keep the stamp, stickers, and washi tape - but only because she will come steal those when she wants them. ;) You pleased the most unappeasable of creatures - the 15 yo teen.
Thanks! "we" loved it.
Comment: Thank you so much, Susan, for a truly great swap! Love the bag you altered - it does look spooky! Ate the cliff bar as soon as I pulled it out of the bag! My grand-nephew ran off with the cider and popcorn. He said they were delicious! The teas and latte mix look really good and will have to try the recipes you sent!! Thank you for hosting a great swap!!
Comment: Thanks for the cute card with all the fun Halloween/fall activities listed inside, as well as the two cute tuck-ins. Funny thing, I actually sent my partner a card you made and sent (blank) last year..? Or maybe in '13, hehee. :)
Comment: I am soooo excited to open all these packages. I like how you wrapped them all. I am sure I will love it all. You are to sweet to send me a sympathy bag of goodies to hold me over until the count down begins. You would think you had known me for years lol! Thank you for building my excitement for Halloween. Hugs, Mona
Comment: I cannot believe this is your first altered book!!! Realy???? It is OUTSTANDING!!! Love the winged skelly on the front and spider web on the back:) Your design inspires me to make a bunch of these for friends next year:) Thank you for a wonderful swap and for the extras too:)
Comment: Thank you for the supplies, most are already wrapped for my audiology kids for tomorrow and Friday!!! They will love it!! The pencils were so cool!! Cute decorated box too!!🐶😈😡😴😃😀🎩 Thanks again Carmen
Comment: I love the Halloween décor on the envelope! Can't wait to try the bread pudding - I love regular bread pudding, caramel and apples, so this should be great! And thanks for the really cool teas - can't wait to drink some! Happy Fall - Happy Halloween!
Comment: Loved this pocket letter Susan, thank you! The goodies you enclosed were so fun. Thank you for joining my swap & also for being an awesome member of Pocket Pickers United. Have a great weekend. :-)
Comment: I loved the pocket letter! It was so well made and the goodies were awesome. Just as a heads up, I had to pay for extra postage so just be careful with future pocket letters. Sometimes they are heavier than you think:)
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I have no idea how it was postage due, I have them weigh it at the post office like I always do with thicker mailings. Not sure what happened there.
Comment: thanks so much! this swap is really useful for me and just what i need. i love the variety, thanks for choosing lots of different things out for me because i love pick and mix ;) love the kawaii memos, the writing sheets, the mini memos, the envelopes and the little bits and pieces like the address label stickers etc. it's all great and i will use it! thanks.
Comment: You did a great job and I am honored to get your first pocket letter. They are fun and addicting-I love them and join when I can fit it in. Thanks for all the wonderful goodies-you were very generous. Cute envelope you mailed it in-did make my day!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the cute little envelopes. Also the note pad. Sure will put that to good use. I'm big on lists. Love the puffy stickers you used. I used a lot of stickers on mine too. As much as I would like to sit down and open them all right now, I will be good and wait for the 12 days before Christmas. This was one of my favorite swaps. Thanks again.
Comment: Yayyyy! What a fun package. No, i HAVEN'T opened anything, (not even the chocolates!!) but I'm so looking forward to it!! (Edited 12/24 what a fun birthday package!! I love the bag especially! And I always want cool WASHI tapes. The socks and pen are sweet, too, and of course the notecards will be used!!!! The chocolates... Hmm... Well I left them under the tree with my gifts and now CAN'T FIND THEM! I will be frantically pulling everything out from under the tree to find them! Haha!! Thank you for everything!)
Comment: Got your package and pretty much immediately ate all the candy. Lol! Love all the surprises :D and your letter. I'm so happy to have a new pen pal and you should be getting my package soon. I'll be writing back ASAP!
Comment: Wow Susan! What a wonderful...spooktacular box of Halloween goodies! Loved the decorated box and spider webs. It arrived yesterday which was my daughter's birthday so I let her unpackage everything...we both adored it!! Thanks so much for all the time and thought put into it :-)
Comment: What a wonderful package of ghostly goodies! I love the idea of a ghost-themed tea party and enjoyed everything you sent, especially the "ghostly greetings" sign and the ghosty socks! What a fun swap! Hope you have an amazing Halloween :)
Comment: Oh-I got a great partner for this swap! Right away I noticed how wonderfully magical it smelled-then it just kept getting better the more I pulled out of the box! Love the variety of things you sent-the stickers-the stamps and the cute cookie cutter-as few trick or treaters we get I could use the treat bags for them or maybe make some black cat cookies for the neighbor kids. Thanks for the care put into this!
Comment: First having a name like susanspooky is downright scary! Apparently you are a bit batty and left a relative in my card! This is your holiday! Love the card. Can't wait to get to fla to put our cards on the entry table. Love the envelopes so much. Absolutely stunning! Thanks so much! Happy Halloween!
Comment: Super "owlsome" baggie. Thanks so much. You really put a lot of thought into it - and the owl homemade stamp is super! My daughter has already swiped the necklace! :-) Thanks for a Hoot of a Swap!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! I did put a good amount of thought in putting it together. :D Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the VERY PRETTY card! I will be spending the day with siblings making cards, and then the evening I'm sure my BF will take me somewhere. Nothing major or extravegant, but I don't need that! And the next day we're going with another friend to explore an old fort up by us! :D FUN! Happy Valentines day!
Comment: OOOhhhheeeee thank-you so much for a fabulous set of cards. I love love love the silver skull you added as an extra. He is going up on the wall above my work table with my other little day of the dead skullies. xxxx
You have the best taste. Lots of hearts xxxxx
Comment: Holy Ghouls, Bat girl! You went wayyyy above and beyond in this swap. In fact I feel as though mine pales by comparison. I'll be sending you another goodie box in the next few days. I sent mostly flat stuff but still, I want you to get as good as you gave!! :) So be on the lookout for another goodie box soon. :D
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. :) I'll keep an eye out for it, thank you!
Comment: Susan, thank you so much for the drawings and all the awesome extras! The shops here don't sell Halloween goods since it's not a much celebrated holiday in Australia, so I'm really grateful for the card and memo papers. The doodles are so cute, and the spider that poops candy corn is hilarious! Again, thanks so much!!!
Comment: Hi Susan! I got your envelope on Friday and didnt get a chance to open it until today (what a crime!) and loved it. The stop sign stickers and funny and the extra note paper will be used quickly, Im sure. Thankyou!
Comment: I love a good zombie story and really like that you wrote it from the box's perspective. I also like how it was short and contained and gave the whole picture in two pages. Great story and I loved the extras!! Long live Halloween everything was great!
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous letter. I really enjoyed reading it - I feel I have really got to know you, far more than a standard 'introduction letter'. Thank you also for the wonderful extras. I really love them.
Comment: Omigod, Susan! Every bit of this was INCREDIBLE. I love every single sticker. You are too kind! Thank you SO much! ♥ I'm gonna put the sky postcard on my fridge. The fridge is my spot for the best postcards. Thanks! It was like, you were like, man, let me find the most awesome stickers ever for this boy.
Response: lol Yes, pretty much! I thought you would like them! :D You are very welcome, Dane!
Comment: I'm sorry the profile was misleading. I love the pink swap - even if pink isn't "my color." And your packet put mine to shame. Everything was fabulous - so generous. I haven't seen the owl baggies - darling. You made my day. Thank you.
Response: You're welcome! I was a bit worried at first with the color thing, but I am so glad you liked it! :) I always try to make every swap special.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the great goodies! I have to say, I'm impressed by the amount of Halloween things you have (and really, really envious!). It's all so cute I almost don't want to use any of it. I will be replying to your letter as well!
Comment: Hi Susan, I love my woodlands envie and everything that you placed inside! The critters, you drew, are wonderful!!! I will be using all the things inside to make more mail art! I love foxes! Thanks so much! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thanks very much for the four notecards you sent (I especially like the one with the whale) and the stickers, Halloween stamped images (the skull one is especially cool!), and recipe card! :) Your envelope was very nicely decorated :)
Comment: WOW! So this was the BEST swap ever -- I'm in awe, Susan! The envies, upcycled cards, fabric, embellishments, baggies, and the OWL are all so perfect. You really nailed it. Thanks so much...look forward to swapping with you again!
Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed it all! I was a bit worried because it was my first time altering cards and decorating the envelopes. I took my time and had fun making everything. Thank you for the lovely compliments!
Comment: Loved your answers! They made for some really entertaining reading this afternoon. ("Back in the Shower" again SLAYED me!) I have always been desperate to get to Salem, Mass but haven't made it yet. It sounds fantastic!"Adventure Time" is also a favorite around our house! Thanks again and have a beautiful summer! Peace, Michelle (Oh and thanks so much for the stickers - they're super cute!)
Comment: Wow, you sent this in such a large box! I was wondering what it could be. :) Thanks for all the stuff! This is really weird, but I sent this EXACT SAME COIN PURSE to my partner for this swap! How funny we both landed on the same one! Happy new year to you as well!
Comment: OMG!!! The coffin box completely ROCKED! I got the box and my daughter opened it in the car and SQUEED. Mind you my daughter is 22! LOL
OMG it was PACKED full of oodles of goodies! Thank you so very much.
If I could give you a ton of hearts I would!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! I never made a box before, it was fun to make. I'm happy you got it in time for Halloween!!!!
Comment: Hi, from one Nashvillian to another! I loved your answers. And you don't need to wait until your future little ones are two - I took my oldest trick or treating at Opry Mills when he was 10 months old. :D Have a great Halloween!
Comment: Sorry to be rating so late - life has been in turmoil the last few weeks and I rather forgot about swap-bot. You certainly did send me a little of everything :) I'm going to have fun creating with it. Thank you so much!!
Comment: The package arrived today. Thank you for a very fun package.Coffee smells delicious- I'll look forward to enjoying it with friends.My students enjoy working with fimo. They don't make much but I end up with lots of little colors of blends. It was all great.
Comment: This was such a fun swap! Thanks for all the fun stuff. I loved it! I really loved your Halloween story. That was wonderful! It made me want to visit Salem. I loved the Mario pumpkin! I'm totally going to try it this year. Thanks again! :-)
Comment: That was a big fat envelope! So many goodies I can use! Thanks for reading thru my likes. I wish i can give you as many hearts as you gave me;) I have to tell you - my daughter opened it up and kept handing me one thing at a time. There were oohs and ahhs, and i thought there was no end to it! We had a great time. Thanks so much.
Comment: !!! You know, I usually think I'm a pretty good swapper, but you put me to shame! Thank you so much for the big box of awesomeness; I was having a pretty crap day and you definitely lifted my spirits! <3
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it all! I actually had a lot of spare things around that I wasn't using and thought you would enjoy. I hope you liked the mushroom house patch I made! :)
Comment: OMG! What an absolutely amazing package of goodies, thank you so much. I had an absolutely crappy day and came home to you package - cheered me right up :-D
I LOVED everything. The ornament with the little owl skating was SO adorable, I hung it straight on the tree before I even unpacked the rest ;-) The stocking went on the tree as well when I was done unpacking, it is so cute. I ate the suger cookie ornament though, thought I was entitled after the day I've had ;-)
And you are the first person to send me a little jar of jam. We don't have anything as interesting as ginger jam here in Denmark. But I like ginger ale and ginger cookies so I am really looking forward to trying it.
There were so many little goodies, I can't possible mention them all, but know that I do love it all.
Thanks for making a bad day end on a good note. And thanks for the effort you put into this, I can really tell you read my profile.
Happy holidays to you and your loved ones :-)
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed everything and that it brightened your day! :3 Happy holidays!
Comment: I LOVE IT ALL!!!
