Comment: Hmmm....this was rated either...you always send so I'll assume I did get it. Sorry for the late rating. We were partner for a number of these bag/book/sheet swaps and I know I got a few envies from you so I probably confused what went w/what lol
Comment: My message sent on Dec 5 still is left unread. I do see you accessed swap-bot a few days ago advising you have been sick. I hope you feel better. I do not normally rate a 1 but figured since my message has been unread, this may be the easiest way for you to keep track of things. I will re-rate of course once I receive.
Comment: This my first time to give a 1. I did contact by PM on Dec 7 2017 as requested on your profile header but it remains unread as of today Dec 22, 2017 even though you logged in on Dec 15 2017. I hope that you are not experiencing a personal, family or health crisis. I will rerate when I receive your swap.
I believe I will receive it as you have over 300 swaps.
Comment: I sent a message approx. 11/30 about not receiving this swap. She replied within a couple days saying that all the mail she'd sent out had never arrived. She said that she'd work on resending all the missing swaps that weekend. On Dec. 12 I sent her a message asking if she'd resent because it hadn't arrived, either. Today (12/18), SB indicates that the message of 12/12 remains unread. I sent her one final message to say that I'd be rating this 1 and will rerate if the FBs ever arrive.
Comment: Still haven't received the friendship sheets for the swap. No need for them now, over a month later. The next swap I wanted them for is over now and I'm not joining any more.
Update: months later it arrived so updated to 3.
Response: Sent a resend. June 19th sent resend. Not sure why you did not get it. I will look to see if it was returned. I will send another one out to you : ) resent June 26th, never received response on resend. This was the second resend. As of OCTOBER never got any response on either of the resends. Not sure if she just didnt rerate when she got them******resent nov 4 tracking number 9500113404067308185560
Comment: Super excited to use expired film!! My new focus has been lomography so this is definitely the next roll that will go in this cheap camera I got off Etsy (Akira TC-002). I had never heard of it, and it definitely isn't the highest craftsmanship, but it's fun nonetheless :). Thank you for joining my swap! I'll host again in about two weeks.
Comment: Hey Crystal! Neat envelope is that made out of wallpaper? it has a funky feel, I like it! I typically do the "deco for days" swaps every week so keep an eye out every Monday. I am defiantly into Halloween so let me know if you host any Halloween swaps! :) Also thanks for the extras and I look forward to doing a page in your deco book!
Comment: Birding movies were pretty popular the last couple of years. Don't know if you have seen any of them, but I have seen about 3 of them and I really enjoyed them. That's nice that you have found a hobby you enjoy.
Comment: Thanks for the cool gelli prints - I love the variety and colors you used. This swap is great for new gelli printers like me to be able to see the possibilities and pick up ideas. So much fun. Cheers, Carolyn
Response: Im glad you like them! I enjoy painting on the plate and printing that way. Not sure if that is “correct” but it produces interesting effects!
Comment: Hi Crystal... I love the Happy Umbrella postcard! I love all of the facts you shared! I wish I could see your tattoo though I know it’s most precious to you in meaning. I love the Fall!!! We are finally having cooler weather. Keep on hiking and please pet your cat for me:) Happy Swapping
Comment: The PC is soooo cute :) We don't really celebrate Halloween in Belgium but it's getting more popular since a few years. I love Halloween decoration and so my livingroom is decorated in Halloween theme now :) I even have a Halloween card 'tree' for the first time ever to hang my Halloween cards :)
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful card! I can imagine that the leaves must be beautiful! My husband and I love to go hiking as often as we can and I love when the weather hits that perfect spot to see beautiful things and it’s not too hot!
Comment: Update: Received today. Thank you!! I hope the other two show up somehow or another. I hate to think of stuff like this getting lost in the mail. You definitely made sure the package didn't get damaged!
Emailed after a month. Said she would resend. Never received anything a month after that message. Will change rating if I receive something.
Response: Ill send one out priority mail to you tomorrow ( saturday) not sure why the others did not get to you. Sent sat october 7th. Prority mail. Gave tracking number through messages.
Comment: Sorry I didn't get this rated sooner. I love the mini pictures that fit on my Poe shelf perfectly. Indeed, the address book is amazing and I love it. I appreciate the postcards as they are hard to find unless you order on line. Love it all. Hugs, Mona
Comment: A message was sent to you on 18th April with no response. Proof: https://ibb.co/b2WZTF
Response: This rating was given with no contact. This is the first time I am hearing that this was not received. This swap was from February. This will be resent. In the future it would be nice to be contacted before getting a 1 rating. Looked through messages, did not see any prior contact. IF the message was missed , an email, re message or profile comment would have been nice. Swap was resent June 10th, 2017. Never got any update about this resend months later in OCTOBER. The original swap happened FEB 2017. This rating was given in JUNE*****nov 4th, 2017 since this swap is closed, sent message to request address as i cannot see it. When i get the address i am sending it with signature confirmation this time. 12/1/17– found out that sending this to be signed for will cost 22 dollars. I resent it regular mail.
Comment: What a perfectly filled envelope! The cupcake and fruit mini stickers are adorable! And I loved the Cotton Club postcard. The envelope was a treat in itself!
Thank you for such a thoughtful swap!
Comment: Thanks for the swap. I had to get it at the post office since it came back as $1.48 postage due. Just a reminder that thick envelopes are considered a package. This should avoid postage due. Also (I don't mind), but try to remember to send a quick message if the swap is going to be a couple days late. :)
Response: Im sorry about the postage due! Ive never had that happen. again, my apologies.
Comment: Thank you for a great envie full of good stuff! You know what I like the best? That cool homemade envelope! I really love it! Thanks for all the paper, postcards and the washi tape, too! Thanks so much!!!
Comment: Thanks for the extra stamps! Yes, I do like getting extra bags, books, or sheets. Thanks for asking, I always just send them. I guess I should start asking first. haha-Take care! P.S. Love getting mail from you.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful swap! The candles & incense holder are beautiful. I love raw crystals and this amethyst is so much darker than the other one I have. It's amazing how crystals can have such different energies even when they're technically the same stone. The Brigid's cross glass gems are so creative! Wishing you a blessed Imbolc~
Comment: Crystal I am giving a heart because I did receive the washi in this swap when you sent with tracking none others have turned up as of yet and if/ when they do I was send them back... Please know that I am truly sorry for all the confusion and do not want to be like the person I am dealing with now and do see where I am sure you felt the same way that I am now! Jaimie p.s. the heart box is checked but isn't showing up on my end....
Response: This is the first time I am hearing about you not getting this. It would have been nice to be notified. I always send my swaps. I would gladly resend if this got lost in the mail. But like I said I was never messaged and never told about this. Zero communication as far as this not getting to her. This rating was given unfairly with zero communication of an issue.
**resent item on 12/14/16***
12/1416---asked user not to contact me any more.since swap was sent. Threatened that she could make things worse for me than they are. Situation of harassment and bullying was reported along with messages to admin and user was blocked. Last message I sent was asking her not to contact me anymore. I only responded when a message was sent. Not sure why I'm being singled out by her. This swap was from October months went by with zero contact. The first time I hear about this all is through inflammatory messages and accusations in December.
Resent for the 5th time today. It was sent today 1/3/16 certified mail. So it has to be signed for. It is tracked and available online. This swapper is very very dishonest and abusive. Claimed to not have gotten any of the resends...
Comment: Crystal please know that I am so sorry and although I have not received this swap I am changing the rating for I do no how stressful a rating can be and I want no part of doing that to someone else the way that I am being done. I am going to fix the other rating as well I'm truly sorry that I didn't know how upsetting a rating could be.... jaimie
Response: Why are you going back to old swaps and re-rating? This makes no sense. You were blocked due to your threats and rude behavior. This is the second swap you decided to go back to after 4 months? That is not credible. Again, I am reporting this to admin. If this was not received in SEPTEMBER i would resend. I have not been in contact with you about this swap.
Comment: Hey Crystal, received Fbs today, clearly mailed a little late but meh I'm not bent out of shape about it. ☺ Just here having fun and enjoying swaps. Thanks for fulfilling the swap! Hope you're having a great January? ♥Debbie
Comment: Hi Crystal,
I just wanted to say that I got your letter a few days ago. Thanks so much for your illustrations! They are ace. I'm going to write back today to you. Yay for pen pals. :)
Comment: I love all the goodies you managed to squeeze into your envelope to me! Thank you so much! My favourite piece is the sewing mannequin / bust. Perfect for a project I am currently working on! Thank you so much! You made my day! :)
Comment: Hello again, friend! Thank you for the cheery penguin-adorned envelope of goodies -- I love die-cut/shaped Post-It notes, the Superman/Supergirl and sparrow postcards, and the colorful notepaper you chose <3
Comment: Hello Crystal,
Thank you for the nice group of goodies you sent me for this swap. The postcards are a collection I already have but that is OK as I can pass them on. The note papers will come in handy for me as I write many notes. Lastly, I love washi tape and I don't have any of the washi tapes you sent on the card. You sent a very nice collection of items that I will enjoy using in the future.
Comment: Thank you Crystal for the fun washi samples. I love them! I really use washi almost every day so they will not go to waste! Also, thanks for putting more washi on your envie. I'll use that too! Your nc is beautiful as well! Happy Autumn!
Comment: Oh Crystal, the altered matchbox you made is SPECTACULAR! You out-did yourself with the decorations - I love it so much. The cameo and the shell pendant and ALL THE SKULLS are indeed GHASTLY - in a good way. I really love the textures of the red wax and the black shiny scrubby trim. Happy Halloween!
Comment: Thank you Crystal for an amazing swap. You really read my profile and put together so many wonderful things. I love literally every thing you sent. Cannot thank you enough. LOVE IT! Even the outside envie!
Comment: This is beautiful! I was in Key West last January and went to the Audobon House. Absolutely gorgeous there.
I need to play with my gelatos. I bought them a while back and haven't done anything with them.
Comment: Your awesome pocket letter arrived today. I loved it. Thank you for participating in my swap and doing a great job. I think that your community gathering "trunks and treats" as a Halloween get together is an awesome Idea.
Comment: This rating is super overdue, but I finally got around to doing it! Thanks for being so patient! I reaaaally enjoyed the pocket letter you made for me! It was so fun opening each pocket for all the goodies. You are so generous for sending me so much stuff along with the pocket letter! Thank you again so much!
Comment: I love your cute Halloween Happy Mail! The sugar skull envie is so cool! I will use all the cute Halloween washi, crystals, skulls, and postcards in a Halloween mini-album I'm making. Thanks for your cute choices for me!
Comment: Hi Crystal! I love the washi and the adorable extras you sent! I especially love the perfume bottle stickers! Thank you SO much for such a lovely swap- you are too kind! Sending you lots of virtual hearts ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: Oh I'm so glad you are enjoying the goodies!
Comment: Hi Crystal! Thanks a bunch for the awesome selection of Halloween washi--I love them all! This is putting me in the spooky mood. :) I appreciate the extra one you sent as well. Thanks for being a great swap partner!
Comment: I love what you sent! It was super creative and just the kind of thing I was hoping for! It's funny you included the horoscope sheet... I saw that on a coffee news letter a week or two ago and I thought it was cool, I never saw them before. The way you stuck on the bracelet was really cool too! Thanks for everything :D
Comment: What a wonderful envie full of treasures! You picked things I love - thank you for being so thoughtful and so generous. I've already checked into those masking stickers - they are new to me and super cool. The tiny bows are unbelievable! Thanks again for everything!!
Comment: I love the halloween goodies you sent! The decorated packaging is also amazing and my boyfriend dubbed it the "coolest" package I've received through swap-bot! I look forward to using the tags and the ribbons. Thank you so much!
Response: It was so much fun to put together. I love Halloween! Enjoy everything!
Comment: Belated thank you for this lovely Cavallini & Co. vintage-style NYC postcard, floral postage, and for sharing in The Grand Budapest Hotel and Ra Ra Riot love :D You are so fortunate to have seen them multiple times -- I was supposed to see them in Houston earlier this year, but the weather was horrific, which barred transportation, but I look forward to seeing them this fall! -- and to have been a DJ. I hope you're enjoying Infinite Jest (on my long, long book wish list)! I actually got out my copy of GBH to rewatch over the weekend but haven't yet. (I am still hoping for its inclusion in the Criterion Collection; I expressly didn't purchase the "regular" DVD but a friend got it for my birthday, heheh ^_^) Happy Monday!
Comment: Wowwwww, I love all of these items SO MUCH. You are really spot on with alllllll of my likes! I am in love with the diy mini food kit, I've already started working on it. One of this kits has been on my wishlist for the longest! Thanks for making my wish come true!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
