Comment: Teresa this was such a wonderful swap. I opened it in the Wal Mart parking lot before I went shopping because I couldn't wait until I got home. I also peak at Christmas presents! Thank you so much for all the extras. Each pocket was another squee. People looking at me must think I was mad! Have a wonderful holiday. Thank you again!

Comment: you did such a great job on your zine! love the little bat on the back!! thanks
Response: Thank you for the great comment--I was worried as I've only made one zine before & wasn't sure if I did it right (I've looked at a LOT of different sites on zines now....I'm slowly improving) I'm so glad you liked it :)
Comment: May I just say ---- your pocket letter was AMAZING! Goodness, I love everything about it. Your letter was wonderful, it is rare to get such a nice, personal letter. And the design and careful detail in your work. And ALL of the goodies, OMG I am in "Halloween Heaven"! And you even sent a little something to get me started on Christmas crafts. I hope we swap again. Thanks so very much!!
Comment: First off I want to stay what a wonderful letter you sent me-people just don't write letters anymore and I just appreciate yours so much. AND the pocket letter is wonderful-I too love fall as it is (I think) the most colorful time of year! Love all the different papers-embellishments and goodies you sent-and the extra stickers-very nice. I thank you for sharing and swapping with me.
Comment: WOW what an adorable pocket letter! I love the vintage Halloween theme to it! Your goodies were perfect and I've already started to use them! & that letter was so wonderful kept me smiling the whole time! I wish I could give you 100 hearts! Thank youuuuuuu sooo muchhh!!! 🎃
Comment: Teresa, Thanks for the adorable mini PL and all the goodies. I love the scarecrow stickers. The washi is great and I may use that on my PL that I am sending out. Thanks for the great letter. Have fun dressing up as pirates - that should be a grrr-eat time.
Comment: I love the pocket letter. The beach is my favorite place to relax. I will definitely use everything you sent. Thanks for sending the letter along. I too read a lot. And, I'm so in love with this new baby.
Comment: Teresa! Outstanding ATC!! All the little details and the black and white with red accents, perfect! My granddaughter was concerned the tiny red bead "skull" was real (kid's imagination)
Thank you also for the little bluejay stickers. I have never seen that brand before and these look so real (in the tiniest version) ❤️
Response: I'm so glad you loved everything, Anne--it was a pleasure having you as a partner!

Comment: You my friend-did good. LOVED the solar alien. The kid made fun of me for squealing when I opened it, the she was scared because of the giggling that followed. Thank you very very much! I hope you get as awesome a swap as I did. Thank you again! Happy Swapping.
Response: You have made my day!! (pleez apologize to kid for me) hope to swap with you again!

I appreciate your note in the Pocket Letter and the Christmas card you sent with the Pocket. Thank you also for the goodies you packed in the Pocket Letter. I appreciate you reading my profile. Lastly, I appreciate the Christmas journal cards and the Christmas bottle cap magnet you sent along as extras. I look forward to using the journal cards and I will hang the magnet on my frig.

Can't even begin to pick favorites as I love it all - but ooh, mannequin die cuts and vintage photo cards and a handmade butterfly; unique, classy tags, cute bicycle and angry bird washi, lovely vintage cards and more, more, more! Thank you for your generosity, sweet Teresa!

Comment: Love the pages you made for me!The extras are unbelievable.Thank you so much. I feel so lucky to have you as my partner.
Response: --your comment really made my day! I was so unsure about the pages, as I didn't think they were good enough after I received yours (because yours blew me away--LOVED them!) I'd love to do some private journal page swaps with you if you're interested! Thank you for the heart & great rating! <3
Comment: I'm so sorry!! I thought I rated you. I think I wrote it but didn't save it. I don't like it when people don't rate. I'm so so sorry. Everything was wonderful!! Fun tape and brads, loved the cute wolf key chain, and the stamps will be fun to use. I love the trees and crow. I was so happy and excited to get the package and showed my partner and everything. Please forgive the late rating.
Response: no apology necessary!! Glad you like the package, and hope to do more swapping with you! :)
Comment: Thank you for your patience as I catch up on all my ratings. :o) Yours was such a fun package to open! Thank you for the DIY Shop newspaper tags, the tractor brads, turtle stickers, tree stickers, turtle rubber stamp, “thanks” rubber stamp, and the Memory Box tree border stamp!!! Love everything!
Response: You're very welcome, I'm glad you liked it all, and I always look forward to swapping with you :)
Comment: Hi Teresa....I received your super-cute rolo yesterday. My favorite season is fall and this rolo depicts fall perfectly! Thank you as well for the freebie musical note stamp. Much appreciated. Thanks again. I loved everything.
Comment: Oh, Teresa...WOW!!! First let me thank you for the beautiful orange rolo...I can see how much went into this beauty! And the extras you sent...so far above and beyond; I think you touched on every one of my hobbies and special delights! Vintage German book pages (that gorgeous font!)...the amazingly lovely map tags...a bag chock full of beautiful beads...and another bag bursting with vintage buttons! You are a 1 in a million swap partner, and I...well, I'm just lucky! Thank you so, so much!
Response: you're very welcome, Donetta! I really love making rolos, and I was pleased with how this one turned out. I'm glad you liked everything & can use it in your crafting :)

Response: Merry Christmas, Carol--have a safe and joyous holiday season! <3
Comment: I love your rolo! Harry Potter is one of my favorite characters. I still cry when I read his books, even though I know how it's going to end. Thank you for the bee brads and ephemera. I'm sure I can use them in future projects.
Comment: I am truly sorry that I'm limited to one heart, Teresa. What an incredible, joyful experience I had opening your package! Not only the most beautiful fairy-themed rolo, but so many amazing extra goodies...it was like opening a birthday present! I adore everything you sent, and most especially your spirit of generosity. Thank you so, SO much for being a wonderful swap partner!!!
Response: --and thank YOU for being such a sweetie, and for the awesome rating! Hope to swap with you again :)

Comment: Wow! You out did yourself. I just love what you created. It will a nice addition to the journals we are making. And thanks for the extras too. bearnbabs
Response: I was hoping you would like the pages! My favorite was the tree page, but I loved making them both! (the feathers were a last-minute impulse, lol) Thank you for the awesome rating--hope to swap with you again!
Comment: Hiya! I am rating this late because there was no note in the envie and no return address label :( Now that I know who and what, I have to say how AWESOME it was to open it up and find the MIO container :) :) :) I love, love,love you forever and ever ;) Also, both of the journal pages (front and back) are great! I love that you made them specific to my likes. Thank you for being part of this swap!
Response: ack, I am so awful about forgetting to sign my pages--I'm so sorry! But I AM happy that you loved the pages! Thanks so much for an awesome swap! <3
Comment: Teresa! I love your ATC which matches your view of January as a time of reflection on your previous year's choices and actions and contemplating what did and did not work; what do you want to add in this new year, etc.The clock for passing time, the saying about what is, and the butterfly to symbolize new life and new experiences. Your little extra is not so little! I love it very much because next to Tim Holtz, I love 7 Gypsies--the ephemera package will certainly be put to lots of uses--thanks for including it. My rating, however, is based only on the ATC. It is going to find a place for display somewhere in my art studio for certain!
Response: aww Peggy, I'm so happy you loved the ATC! I was really pleased with the way it turned out, and I really had a relaxing time working on it :) Look forward to swapping with you again, and thank you for the great rating and for being such a wonderful partner!
Comment: Really cute pages! Thank you, and I'm sorry this is so late. I just remembered why I hadn't rated you...you didn't put the name of the swap or your own name anywhere inside or outside the envelope! I had to wait to hear from you. But the pages ARE really cute!
Response: thank you--I actually had Christmas cards that I *thought* I had put in the envelopes, but after I got home I found them laying on the counter :P Totally my fault, and sorry for the confusion....I tend to forget to sign my pages when I'm done.
Comment: I am saving my packages until Christmas (I hope). However, I may wear them out feeling them and trying to figure out what they are. I usually am good at guessing, but you have me stumped! I love the card you sent and shall cherish it. The socks are great! Since I have big and diabetic feet, I gave them to my granddaughters, and you made them very happy! I really enjoy sharing things with them, and the socks are starting off the holiday season for them. Thank you for a wonderful, enticing swap. PS: After reading your profile, I want to meet you. You sound like such an interesting person! PPS: Okay, I opened one of the presents! I am struggling with a bad tooth, and found out yesterday I am going to have a root canal. Not the best day in my life. So, I treated myself by opening a present. It was the envelope machine, and I love it! I really enjoy making envelopes, and this will make it so much more fun…and I think the result will be so cool. I never even knew there was such a thing, but I am so happy I have it. Thank you so much!!
Response: I reaaallllly want to know if you like what I picked out! Have a wonderful Christmas, and I look forward to swapping with you again :)
Comment: If those are your first pages, then you're a natural! They are great! I love the way you used the card as the whole page, glued shut and decorated on the back! I've used them for pockets, but never for just pages. I love the idea! Thanks for being my partner, and thanks for all the extra goodies, too. I'm in heaven!
Comment: Thank you so much for joining this swap with me and for the beautiful rolo that you made! I love the different elements and the fun ribbon. I don't often receive rolos with extra bits hanging off the side, I think they look so fun on my holder. Thank you too for the cool skull magnet, very cool! I look forward to seeing you in some more swaps :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! I tend to do a lot of rolo-swapping in the winter months, so I'll def be joining more swaps! Thank you for being an awesome partner & for the wonderful rating :)
Comment: Thank you for the AWESOME Package. I love everything:-) LOL! I sent Werthers to my Partner also!

Comment: Thank you for the BEAUTIFUL Fall ATC. And then all of the owl extras!! I wish I could give you more than 1 heart!! Thank you!!
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! Fall is my favorite time of year, & I had fun using that theme with the tree in it :) Thank you for being a great partner and for the awesome rating--hope we can swap again!

Response: Your comment really made me smile, Ina, especially after having an awful day. I'm so glad you liked it, and was hoping you'd love the tea, too! I really hope to swap with you again! <3
(and thank you for the heart!)
Comment: What a lucky girl am I! Not one, but two fantastic tags! I love them both, I would have been happy with either, but super happy that I got two. I not only got wonderful tags, but I love the Prima flowers and journal tags. I feel completely spoiled. Thank you very much for the great swap!!

Comment: OMG!!!! Totally amazing package. Thank you, thank you, thank you for resending. you are incredible!
Response: <3 !!! I'm so happy you loved it :) The cup wasn't as pretty as the first one, but it was hard trying to find a (pretty) holiday mug AFTER the holidays, lol! If the first one ever shows up, it's a birthday present!! ;) hugs! teresa
Comment: First, I had problems figuring out what swap this was for until I opened it...I was expecting a tiny little package and got a great big envie! :) Thank you for the extra tea and yarn. I'll definitely enjoy both.
And then there's the domino itself. It's absolutely gorgeous. I have to ask...what media did you use? :) Thank you so much!
Response: I used alcohol inks, Staze-On ink pads, and Sharpies, lol--I tend to use a compilation of things until I get it the way I want it! :-) I'm so happy you liked it--I really liked it, too, and was happy when it came out exactly how I wanted! Thank you for the awesome rating, and I hope to swap with you again :-) hugs, teresa

Comment: The ATC was beautiful you did a wonderful job on it One of the best ATC in my growing collection. Thanks so much Teresa for the fabric.

Next, sending me all of those fancy brads and the bitsy daffodil stamp was extremely generous! I will have fun using them in my future projects (except for the dragonfly brad which is mine all mine!) And last, but certainly not least, you covered the envelope in cute critter and lovely daffodil postage stamps. Absolutely fabulous swap. Thank you SO much! <3<3<3<3<3

Response: You're welcome, Tess! I thought you'd like the dog mug--I got a cat one for myself as they are really cute :) Thank you for rating, and have an awesome Solstice! hugs, teresa
Comment: YOU, my friend, are beyond amazing. I loved each and every thing you sent and what you worried about most was my FAVORITE. I've already named her and will proceed to stab her at will. I can't believe you weren't confident. You did amazing. When I showed Jen she loved it, but I made her say "Ohhh what's in the box??" Like in Se7en. It was genius. :D You deserve 17 billion hearts, I'll talk to Rachel about how we get these to you :D xoxo <3
Response: You are amazing, sweetie, and I'm so happy you loved it all--If I had known who you were going to name her after, I could have "personalized" her more! (wink wink,nudge, nudge--LOL!) Look for ward to swapping again, dearie! hugs, teresa
Comment: What a wonderful envie! I love the fall rolo (fall is my fave time of year too.) The extra blingy stickers, dimensional fairy stickers, and Tim Holtz reinforcers really made me smile. I was having a tough day (with health issues) and your envie made my day. I wish I could give you more hearts. Thanks so much for everything.
Response: You're welcome, Lizzy--it makes me happy knowing my package took some crappiness out of your day (hope you're feeling better!) Thank you for the rating! hugs, teresa
Comment: Oh. My. Goddess. You made me cry. So many books! Yes, I am happy to receive the workbook for Shakti Gawain's visualization book. I had no idea there was a companion to it. The Tarot book is absolutely delightful not to mention beautiful. I will be using that one alot. The Psychic Pathways book looks very interesting & I can't wait to dive into that one as well as the Lord Foxglove book which intrigues me just paging thru it. Wow, again, and many thanks and blessings. 1000 hearts to you. You've gone way above and beyond the swap requirements and I'm humbled by your kindness. <3 bb, summerhawk

Response: What a lovely comment--it made my day! I'm so glad you loved everything, it was really grand to swap with you! hugs, teresa
Comment: Unbelievable! Teresa, I don't think I could ever have imagined such an incredible assortment of wonderful things. And to think it's a re-do...honestly, it boggles my mind. I keep peeking at the different items, and in my mind I'm thinking, Teresa went so far beyond the parameters of the swap that I wish I could give many hearts. Speaking of hearts, thank you from the bottom of mine!!!
Response: You're very welcome, Donetta--I'm so glad you enjoyed everything!!...it's a real pleasure to swap with you! hugs, teresa

Response: you are very very welcome, and I'm so glad my package made a crappy day better!! hugs, teresa
Comment: I am blown away by the generosity and the thought you put into this package. I loved all of it, it was like you got into my head and picked just what I would have chosen for myself! Thank you for the time and care you took~I will enjoy using all of it:listening to the wind chimes, drinking my tea from my lovely new mug, reading what looks to be a fascinating book, smelling the yummy candles, and watching the seeds grow into plants. And my Hestia altar already has the cute little oil lamp on it!
Feel free to stalk my profile any time!

Comment: Thank you for the amazing package. I love the teas and the ATC and the book was just great. I feel so spoiled. :) Thanks so much!!!
Response: I'm thrilled you liked the package, Margo, and it made me *extremely* happy to know you liked the ATC, as I don't draw very many (I mostly collage), and was worried it wasn't good enough--but I sure had fun making it (and I love chamomile too!) hugs, teresa
Comment: Hey, I meant to rate earlier, but it has been a crazy week. :-)

Response: I'm so glad you liked it--I had so much fun making it and I'm glad to know you liked the package! :-) hugs, teresa
Comment: I felt like it was my Birthday today. I was asleep when it came and my son was just itching to see what was in it. He cut it open but left the final lift for me. Right off he spotted the altoids and had to try one, I have been tempted to try that flavor thanks for being psychic! Your rolo cards are fantastic! I can tell that you enjoy paper crafts by the love you put into everything you make. The little matchbook notepad is just perfect for my tiny purse that I carry. The fabrics you sent are sensational. Love the oriental style. The postal style notecards are so cute. I will definately be using the beads and charms in future creations. I just cannot thank you enough for such a thoughtful and generous package. Linda
Comment: It is a wonderful day indeed when I recieve a package from you. The rolos are so cute The U for UFO is so sweet. Now is the V for vanilla color paper, Victorian times or Vaudeville (my sons guess). So many thoughtful items that I will enjoy using. The crocheted cloths/hotpads are so colorful and just sweet. Yum for flavored coffe. I really like a nice cup of coffee in the morning, thanks for the treats to look forward to.
Response: You're the closest, Linda!!! The "V" is for vintage, LOL (but I'm likin' the vanilla paper thing too!!) :-D You're the best!
Comment: Your packages are the best. They always leave me with a giagantic smile on my face. I love to see the way you interpret the theme of each swap, your altered rolodex's rawk. I am so glad that I have been able to swap with you.
Comment: Teresa I received your swap today and it was great. You picked 2 of my favorite candies and the kitchen set it cute. I thought you did a great job on the trick or treat bag! Thank you for all the goodies. :D
Comment: Thank you so much for the post card! =D I will totally have to go see that place sometime! Looks like a GREAT place for a wedding! =D And right by the water! Can't get any better than that! ;P Have a great week!
Comment: Wowza! Your rolos really rock! I love the ribbons on the sides...a little added kick! I don't have cable, but I have to rent the true blood series...I did read the twilight series and loved it, and i am not ashamed to say it! Your RED and SPRING rolos are really beautiful! They are already proudly displayed in my rolo holder. Thanks so much for the ton of extra goodies! The material is great - even my SweetPea commented on how much he liked the skeleton one! Everything is really sweet - the gum, the Reminisce magazine (I LOVE IT!), the coffee.... thanks so much for such a wonderful package :)
Response: I'm so happy you loved the rolos, Jill!! It's really a compliment hearing you say they rock, because yours are so awesome! :-) I'm thrilled you liked the package too, as you're a fantastic swapper, & I always look forward to having you as a partner! hugs, teresa
Comment: Wow! Thank you for the amazing books, I love them and can't wait to read them! Love the brads too! I really hope you like what I sent you and that it turns up soon. :) Thanks for a great swap! :)
Comment: This package brightened my day, my week, my oh my. The rolos are so great. The quote on the Q card makes me think yes, the greatest artist of all. I think the O is so great. An O for Ohio where you live is just so appropriate and it is cute. You do fantastic work, with great ideas. Now I am going to do W for Washington! Great idea. I will enjoy this package for many, many weeks to come. The coffees and cocoas look delishious, the fabrics will fit into some fun projects. The tissue and scrapbooking papers are going very close to my drawing table so I can do some collages. The notepad will be for very special notes. The wood box is so pretty and smooth with detail so intricate. Thank you so much for the heart you put into this swap and the sweet note that came with it.
Comment: What a wonderful page! I thought I had rated you already for this--sorry! I really liked all the details you put into this page for me. And thanks so much for the extra pentacle brads--they're awesome! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: Thank you for the BOS lovely page! I love purple/blue colours, the fairy imagery, etc., so it was perfect and I like the incantation very much! The charm and teas were greatly appreciated as well! Thank you!
Comment: This is an extra special swap, thank you so much! I almost panicked that swap-bot would not let me give a heart at first, cause you deserve a million. Your rolo cards are fantastic, it looks like you are having fun making them. I love each one Japan is a favorite theme of mine. I love the vintage look of the kitchen. What's not to love about the love one from the cute background paper to the little epoxy love button. And the moon you hung the moon!!! Nature you picked so many things that I can find in my area. Although our butterflies are not that colorful. Thank you so much for the extras fabric to keep me out of trouble, cocoa and coffee to get me that caffeine so I can make something with the fabric, breath mints so I do not have coffee breathe! What a thoughtful package. You are the best no doubt about it.
Response: I'm so glad you started this group, Linda! I love making the rolos, and really have fun thinking of what kind of card I can create that will be different for each letter :-) You're very welcome for everything, I'm so glad the package made your day--you're such a fab swapper! hugs, teresa
Comment: I LOVED the whimsey jar you sent to me! It is so pretty! I love the butterflies that are on it. I also LOVE the extras you put in, especially the skull appliques...they are so cute. The whimsey was stuffed full, just the way I like em, so it was an AWESOME whimsey, you did a perfect job with it! Thanks so much for being an incredible swap partner. Maybe we'll get to swap again in the future. Hugs, Joanne
Response: YAY--the jar arrived in once piece, and I'm thrilled that you love it (my very first one--I was sweatin' it)!! Thank you, Joanne, for the rating and heart, and for being such a lovely swap partner....I look forward to many swaps with you in the future! Hugs, teresa
Comment: Your rolo's are very clever, they will be a great addition to my collection. Thank you so much for the fabrics and coffees and licorice tea's and gum and seed. Sunflowers grow very good here. I must ry the licorice tea tonight! You are so generous I am just so amazed and grateful.
Response: I'm so happy you liked the package, Linda! I was worried when you didn't receive right away, but, when I looked back at my receipt, I realize that the postal worker didn't hear me when I told her to send it **priority mail**! (no wonder it took so long!) I'm relieved you received it--it's a real pleasure to send to you, you're so much fun to surprise! :-) I'm looking forward to the next round of rolos! Hugs, Teresa
Comment: Wow!!! talk about knocking my socks off. You are so generous. I can tell you read my profile! The fabrics are perfect all the bright colors I love. Mints and gum and the soap leaves where did you ever find those are going straight into my purse. I love,love, love it all. Your index cards are the bomb! I don't think I could pick a favorite. You are a super duper A plus swapper. My sons nickname is Wickett what a small world? Thank you so much for making my day!
Comment: Thank you very much. I love my Owl bookmarks, thats right, I am the lucky one. I got more than one great bookmark and a package full of wonderful surpises. If I could give more than 1 heart I would!!! Thanks again, Connie
Comment: Extra special package doesnt cover it ,it was an amazing package thank you so very much, everything was beautiful :)
Response: So glad you liked it, Nicky--I was so worried it would get broken, even being packed in the tin--did it make it in one piece? I had so much fun making it, and was really pleased with the results :) Glad it brightened your day!
Comment: Wowwee.... I did a happy dance when I opened this one up! I love the beautiful tissue paper the cards were packaged in...and the cards are amazing! I am so glad to see your work - I am going to gleam some of your ideas for my cards :) I love the ribbon too... Very very cool. And thanks for the awesome rubber stamp...love the skullie! Really -thanks for sharing and hi to your kitties.

Comment: Thanks for the wonderful stamps, I love them and they were a wonderful surprise. Thanks a million times over. Lets do this again when the next issue of Weird NJ comes out. :-)
Response: A GREAT idea! I'm up for swapping for every issue!--you're such a great swapper, Leah, and the magazine is fantastic! I'm so glad you loved the stamps :-) (I worried maybe you wouldn't like them or already have them) Hugs, Teresa!
Comment: What a great ATC and goodies. Love the Vellum die cuts. As a matter of fact I need two images of a license plate for a ATC swap, and have not been able to locate any. The die cuts had the license plates I needed. The dog charms are very cute. Thanks bunches with a lot of hearts.

Comment: As usual, fabulous swap! I LOVE everything! The magnet is the same goddess that our group uses in our logo. The shrine is SO cool! I'm going to put it on my desk at work. :-) I'll contact you about the book, I think it's a fantastic idea! :-) The stamp will come in handy, as well as the parchment labels. :-)
Oh, I love the book, magazine and incense and candle. Faboulous, wonderful and to use one of your words I love *squee*
More, more and more later, dear friend, I'll talk to you soon.
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap! This came at a great time because our 13 year old beagle just passed away last week so I am going to put pictures of her in the bottlecaps and let Devon have one too. It was perfect and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. :D
Comment: What a lovely ATC, the caption on the cat is definitely a hoot! :o) And the bottle cap pin is absolutely adorable, the fish came off during the journey, but I'll glue it back on tonight. I love the charm you used, too. A definitely deserved heart for making me laugh and smile after a bad day at work :o)
Comment: Your card is so cute!! The red/orange/yellow is just a perfect representation of the Summer Solstice! Thanks so much for all the postcards (going in my collection now), the tea (yum, chai, my favourite!), the oregano seeds (will be started this weekend) and the soap leaves (just plopped them in my purse!)! I truly appreciate the time you took to read my profile and send extras that I totally LOVE!! Thanks again! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: I LOVE your Greenman ATC! In fact, I have a really nice lucite frame that is perfect for it and will put it on my permanent altar. :-) I love The Inner Circle! Our coven did a book study on it. So unfortunately, I already have a copy, however, if you don't mind, I know someone who would love it. :-)
Response: Be my guest to pass it along--I'm happy to know someone else can use it! Hugs, Teresa
Comment: Thanks for the magnets and the tea, was an awesome package to come home to after working and grocery shopping, I love th elittle ocean/bottlecap one, and the penguin is super cute. Thanks so much!
Comment: I LOVE LOVE LOVE my package! The card is so cool and the Shrine! All I can say is - I LOVE it! Is that your kitty inside?
And the book - I'm going to see if my book study group would like to read it when we finish the current one we are reading. I am so glad that they have published something by our elders. It's about time:-)
Comment: Great ATC thanks. I am also trying to learn how to do the tape transfer without getting any winkles in it, so far I haven't succeeded I still manage to get one so then I throw it away in anger. Oh well, thanks for reading my profile I love the extras they are great.
Comment: Hello Teresa,
First and foremost, what a beautiful and thoughtful piece of art you created for the "Christmas Card Tip-In." I just love the varied snowmen(I collect snowmen), the varied papers and textures, wordage, and also even some brads. The finish tip-in reflects a lot of what this time of year involves as well as some of the season. I think this may be our first time to swap with one another. I do hope we have more oppourtunites to meet on other swaps. Until then, I hope you have been experiencing positive and rewarding swaps. Have a great 2008!
P.S. Thank you for the package of stickers for use as part of the next big holiday coming up, Valentine's Day. It was very generous of you.
Comment: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥I cannot thank you enough for the very, very generous package you've sent me Teresa!!!! I LOVE everything and even my kitties are hooked with the blankets already!! I just love all the extra's too :D:D:D

Comment: Thankyou for the lovely incense! And all the extras, it was a wonderful package, made my day! My kids really enjoyed the lollies. Sadly the post office managed to break the holder, but I think it should be ok if I glue it! Thankyou again! I would give you 10 hearts if I could!
Comment: My WONDERFUL gluebook arrived today ~ THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! WOW!! It is terrific. I appreciate all of the time that you put into creating it. Of course all of the little extra goodies you sent are fabulous, too! I was in need of more tea, can't wait to try them. I see old favorites and new ones that look very interesting. Love, love the coffee! Plus even sweets! You are so generous, wish I could give you all of the hearts that you so deserve. ~DeAnne
Response: I'm so glad you loved the gluebook! I had so much fun making it & the ideas just kept flowing....I started it early, but it took on a life of its own and I eventually had to force myself to put it down, LOL! Made my day to know you like it so much! :-D
Comment: What a beautiful ATC! I'm simply enthralled with it! The colors, the sparkles, it's just lovely! Is the background watercolor? Did you do that yourself? Gosh, I have SO much to learn about ATC's!!! Thank you so much, Teresa! And thanks for the extra goodies, too! I'll be having one of those teas during first recess tomorrow! :D
Response: The background was made by blotting alcohol inks on photo paper :-) I'm so happy you liked it!
Comment: Blue moon. My favourite thing, and my favourite beer. No one could have made a more "oh that's so me" ATC. I got them extremely early, The extra's were sooo sweet (and i'm fighting with my 7 yr old over who's going to maintain posession of that yummy lipgloss... which the Post Office miraculously did not cause to leak!!! yay!) Really good stickers (which i'll be using tonight because they're perfect for a huge ATC im making on canvas) well - yet another restorer of my faith in fantabulous swappers :) ty ty ty. *bounce bounce* weee.
Comment: Wow!!! Three bookmarks from such a talented artist. I love the simple crocheted lace which always makes for such a super medium for a bookmark. Thanks for the wonderful pieces, I have one alreay keeping my place in Harry Potter!
Response: Thanks Sarah...it really brightened my day to know you liked them so much!
Comment: I just love all of the wonderful little goodies you sent me. It's so obvious you read my profile and picked the items just for me .. which makes them so special! Thank you!! WLS has the best swappers!!
Comment: Okay where's the 5 star option?!! Because this swap definitly deserves one!! Youw ent above and beyond the shrine!! Which I love! But I also love all the other stuff you sent to!! Thanks so much!!!
Response: I'm so relieved you liked the shrine :-D I'm new to matchbox shrines (have done Altoids before, but these are *smaller*, lol!)and I'm always worried that my recipient (aka: victim) won't like it! I'm so happy you loved the other stuff too! I had lots of fun with these shrine swaps of yours!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful package! I am delighted with everything you've sent, you have been so generous! It took a while to get here, I think Customs may have had a peek as the magnet arrived minus the magnet! Never mind, it got here and there are such wonderful things in my parcel. I'm going to try some of the teas this afternoon. Thank you again for your generosity.
Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed everything! I'm sorry Customs had a peek--would you like a replacement magnet? Let me know, and I can mail one out to you, no trouble at all...I'm so glad you liked the teas too (I LOVE teas)! Hope we're partners again in the future! :-D
