Comment: I got this ATC however it did not have the month listed on it and just had print outs slapped on. Contacted partner for resend, and still have not received it. Will update if I ever get the resend made correctly. Bear in mind it is almost a month after send by date atm. Was advised to make this a 1 rating by host.
Comment: 08/13 In response to your snarky response, you actually did NOT communicate with me beforehand. You said you did not feel well after the swap was already late. You are more than welcome to discuss the 3 with the swap host. If you wanted to argue this, you could have done so in a PM - I notified you long before the 3 option was available that this was the route I'd be going. I'm sorry you did not feel well, and life does happen, but my point is ... you had many days to either log in and do the swap OR log in just to tell me it would be late. Again, feel free to have the swap host intervene. And BTW, life has happened to me too, and it's happened HARDCORE, but I follow through beforehand so please, save your snark.
I'm sorry to rate the 3, but I did notify you that I would be doing so some days ago. It always seems silly to rate down on an electronic swap, and while I sympathize with the fact that you did not feel well and may not have logged in on the very last day of the swap, there were plenty of other days to complete the task or notify me. I do appreciate the comments and likes, and I did notice the follow so the down rate is really only for being late without communication. Hoping your summer is well - take care!
Response: I did communicate by messenging you about the situation just like I did my other partners but they seem to have more of a heart & be more understanding. I have had so many partners in the past late with their swaps but if they messaged me & still completed it then I was understanding & nice enough to not rate them a 3. I just hope in the future you don't run into a situation where life happens & you need someone to be understanding.
Comment: Beautiful postcard! Thank you so much for the nice note you wrote. It was great getting an actual note instead of just a quote or quick hello.

Comment: Well this is the cutest little ATC. I love it!!!💞 if I could give you two hearts I would!! I love my doilies!!! They’re so tiny. I’ve never seen little ones like that. Thank you so much!!
Response: Ur very welcome! I got the tiny doilies on Etsy. I was on a hunt to find doilies that would be small enough for ATC's & pocketletters so then I finally found them on Etsy. Thank you for the heart ❤
Comment: Hi April! Wow, you do craft fairs! That's awesome! Thank you for the adorable Rinchies.. I always think that being so small, you can't really get much on an inchie or rinchie... but I am always proved wrong by ones I receive, and the few I have made! So fun to explore new avenues of creativeness! Thank you also for the extra goodies, I love them! Hope you did well at the craft fair :-) <3
Response: Ur welcome. It was the 1st time I have created Rinchies. It was fun! It is fun to explore. Glad you loved the extras! That's one of the fun parts for me, looking that a person profile & sending them something that will make them smile. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: oh my gosh....I squealed out loud!! I had never seen one in person aside from what I made. I love love love it all!! Thanks so much
Response: I had so much fun making this loaded envelope! I bought the paper pad especially for it. It enjoyed making all of the goodies to go in it also. I am so happy that you loved it & it made you smile! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Oh my God thank you so much for your ATC it was beautiful simple but beautiful in the quote really relates to my life you wouldn't believe how close you nailed me there thank you so much it really meant a lot to me
Comment: We have hummingbird feeder as well, they remind me of our friends' mother who passed a few years ago; she treated us just like family. She was as fragile as a hummingbird but her with was just as quick. It's touching to know they have special meaning to someone else.
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC! The frame is such a cool idea! And the beads look just like coffee beans!! lol Thank you too for the tea... I haven't tried that brand before.
We're waiting too for spring so we can go camping!
Comment: I have never rated low since I joined. It was due out on the 16th of Feb, but mail stamped the 23rd. I had no word from you at all, that would have changed everything. Communication is the key!!
Comment: WOW, what a great "washified" envies you made for me! I like the tapes you included, and the cut die-cut tags. Your envies & snippets of your tapes are going into my "All Things Washi" journal. Fun! :)
Comment: I think it's so cool that out of 89 people, you were given your "neighbor's" address. Thank you so much for all of the really cool stuff!! Stay warm and dry. Hoping the spring weather returns!
Comment: You did a great job with the concept of inchies but your inchies were bigger than an inch-just so you know next time you do inchies! Thanks for the extra Halloween items-love "em! Thanks for sharing and swapping!
Comment: April, I love the washi that you choose to send me in this swap and I didn't have a one of each of these! Thank you so much for all the little extras.. I love the handmade card that you made as well! Thank you soooo much!
Comment: I love the card you made. Thank you so much. How was your potato soup? That's a great tradition. I haven't had potato soup in decades...and I can't remember how my grandma made it. Your words brought back very good memories. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for sharing such beautiful scripture with me! I am definitely going through a â€œrenewingâ€ with the Lord and this was shared with me at the most perfect time. Many blessings to you!
Comment: Thank you, April, both for the cards & the extra stamps you thoughtfully included.I know how hard it can be to find non-touristy cards in many places. Even here there is little variety so I often buy books of postcards online. I hope the New Year is a good one for you.
Comment: Thanks so much for your swap. I enjoyed it a lot. For future themed color pocket letter swaps make sure the goodies inside are either one or other of the colors mentioned. I am not as stickler as some swappers. Over all beautiful job.
