Comment: Wow, Beth, your package was so generous, it wouldn't fit into my post box! I love everything you sent, especially the notecards made from your photography. My favorite one is the chickensâ™¥
The Scripture you chose from Isaiah is one of my favorites. I relied heavily on that one when my late husband had cancer. It has a lot of meaning for me.
Thank you so much. I couldn't ask for a sweeter little sister than youâ™¥
Response: You always appreciate everything so much! I am happy you like everything. I was so glad to see you were my partner for this swap! Thanks for your kind words and great rating!

Cheers for our new year! Hugs...jinanne
Response: No worries. thanks for the kind rating and Merry Christmas!
Comment: In the spirit of the season, I am rating you as you requested, I see your other partner received their card, so I am certain mine was mailed at the same time and the postal service failed to deliver it. Have a lovely holiday!. Update 12/28: Received the 2nd card and stickers, thank you. It truly wasn't necessary, but thank you.
Response: I'm sorry you never got it. I always, always send my swap on time. As I stated in my profile, if something is not rec'd, it is up to you to contact me and I will gladly re-send or track it down. I was not notified and not aware it wasn't rec'd until I asked to be rated. I still offer to re-send if you would like another type of card (rather than xmas).update: I sent a new card out on 12-21-16 and included more stickers. :) so glad you received the re-send! Happy New Year!
Comment: Beth! My package arrived today and all I can say is WOW! The envelopes are so adorable! And I love how your personalized everything. I am looking forward to a great week, and will be sure to be messaging you several thank yous :)

Comment: Woo Hoo!! Two envelopes from you today! Love all the envelopes you made for me!!! And the Baggie of extras is the cat's meow!!! You know I love the 14's! And the movie theatre ticket stub. How'd you like the movie? I read the book. You're a peach to send so much ephemera. Thanks ever so much!!

I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving when we praise our gracious God for all His many blessings in our lives. Big hugs from MO!
Response: Thank you Joy, for your kind comments and rating. There is always a moment for me where I pause before mailing and hold my breath, wondering if I'm sending the right things to make the person smile. I'm so happy you like what I've sent. Happy Thanksgiving! God Bless!

Comment: Hi Beth! Thank you so much for the wonderful card and surprises inside! I have colored the bookmark and I just love it!! How awesome that you saved Kung Pao and Big Mama! They are so beautiful! :) What a busy summer you had!! My hubby and I were just discussing this weekend, how we need to clean out our home and pare down too! The verse you chose is perfect! It is one of my favorites also! And what a happy envelope!! Thank you for such a heartfelt swap! Blessings!
Response: You are so welcome. It really makes me happy when someone likes a swap I sent. If it helps you pare down, the book I always recommend is Peter Walsh's IT'S ALL TOO MUCH! It's really inspirational and a guide I return to over and over. Thanks for the heart and your kind remarks!
Comment: Just got your letter expect mine as soon as I can reorganize my three years old granddaughter took all of my letters out of their envelopes and I've got to refine pages and rematch envelopes for address.
Comment: Dear Beth, what a beautiful, wonderfull package you sent me. I don't know how to explaine to you how greatful I am. Jeee I just started laughing because you put on the card, just send you a few little things ðŸ˜„ Well it was a lot and all wrapped in a gorgeous envie. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ I will wright to you. Lots of hugs, Cynthia
Response: I am so happy you like everything! I put together swaps I hope my partners will like, but you know, you win some, and you lose some! I'm glad this was a winner! :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Beth, what a wonderful fat package of fun stuff! Your flower photos (are these from your garden?) are so vivid and richly colored. I love the bookmark, and the sticky notes are just in time, because I've run out. Thank you so much. I love swapping with youâ™¥
Response: Tere, thank you for your kind words! The flower photos come from wherever I see beautiful flowers! So glad you like the other little surprises. I love swapping with you too! :)

Comment: Hi Beth, thank you for the happy mail you send me! I like the things you picked for me :) Unfortunately I couldn't find the sticker sheet (only 2 owl stickers). But I like it anyway! So thank you!
UPDATE: Thank you very much for the stickers you resend me. It's really kind of you to do so. I really think the fish stickers are cute and the letters are very lovely! Thank you so much! â™¥ï¸

Pls pm me when you get them. :) Thanks for your patience. UPDATE: I am so happy you got them and you like them! Thanks for contacting me so I could improve the swap! :)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome swap! I loved everything you sent and I think that it's really cool that we have things in common. I think that it's awesome that you mom had you memorize Psalm 23 as a child. I believe that the trials in our lives make us stronger. Even through times of trouble, the Lord is always with us. He always gives us comfort and love. When we are hurting, he is always there for us. I have been through a lot of pain in my life, but through it all, He has always been there for me. I pray that you have a blessed summer. Before you know it, the holidays will be here.
Response: Yes, I agree with all you said above. I was very blessed to have a Christian mother and father who taught me God's Word from a young age. The verses are still with me today and help me navigate this crazy life. :)
Comment: Beth...Thank you for the great card and note of encouragement...the scripture you picked is a great reminder in this world of turmoil that we can have PEACE that passes all understanding. And....with HIS help we can ALL be overcomers!! Enjoyed swapping with you and hope to get to know you better through this amazing group of Christian Friends on the bot :) I also want to mention how cute your swap card is of recycled materials (very creative!)Blessings, Charlene
Response: You're welcome, Charlene and thank you for the kind rating. :)
Comment: You did a great job of stuffing this envelope for me! Gives me lots of stuff like which I don't have and that is one of the purposes of swaps like this! I love your idea of adding a swap card and made from paint chips! How clever-may have to "steal" that idea! Thanks for sharing with me-it is indeed happy mail!
Response: I'm glad you like everything. And feel free to steal my paint chip swap card idea. I'm almost sure I stole it from someone on Youtube! :) Thx for the nice rating!
Comment: Thank you for everything. I enjoyed reading the letter and the stickers & necklace are great! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: You're welcome. The cross on the necklace is real tiger's eye stone. I bought it from a local rock museum here but I never wear it and we are de-stashing, so hope you enjoy it! You're welcome for everything else. Have a great summer. Thx for the heart!
Comment: Sorry to take so long in rating this swap Beth. For some reason, I thought I did, but it has been such a busy month for my family.You did an amazing job with this swap! I absolutely loved everything!!
Thank you for taking the time to put this together! If I could rate you a 10 I would!
Response: So glad you liked it Denise. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for everything you mailed! The note card and little envelope are very nice and the postage stamps will be put to good use. I love the Keep Calm and Carry On postcard and have hung it on my bulletin board.
Response: I'm happy you like everything. have a great w/end and thx for the heart!
Comment: Oh, you spoiled me, Beth! All these lovely cards (your photography is awesome!) and blank card stock and postage and tape - -everything is perfect. I am really looking forward to reading and using the Bible journal your friend wrote! Thank you so muchâ™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Tere, I am so glad you like it. Most of the fun of swapping for me is putting the little packages together and imagining the joy when they're opened on the other side! Thanks for doing the private swap and for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the LOVELY mail! I really enjoyed it, especially the very pretty and inspiring stationery. Thank you for the super cute stickers too. I'll reply once I've sent to my partners. Best wishes, Michelle x
Response: You are welcome, Michelle. So glad you like it. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Beth, thank you for your sincere letter, and to answer your question, yes! I have a gratitude journal and I write in it every single morning. I've been doing it for years and when I started it back then my family was going through some tough times as well. It is true that the more you are grateful for what you have no matter how small, the more you receive in your life. I give thanks every day for what I have and also for what I have not yet received (giving thanks in advance). Blessings and best wishes to you, have a good weekend! And I love the camping stickers, they're great :D
Response: You are so welcome, and women like you inspire me to want to be even more grateful and realize how blessed I am. Great swapping with you! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hello Beth,
Thank you for the nice variety of notecards you sent me for this swap. I like how you included a handmade card in the selection of notecards. I look forward to using these cards.
Response: You're welcome Barb. Glad you liked my handmade one too. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: You deserve 1 millions hearts and stars, gosh you really spoiled me my lovely friend, thanks so much for my awesome package and I am pleased to let you know the chocolate made it and is now in my belly, thanks so much xxxxx
Response: Jen, I am so glad you like everything! I just put a bunch of fun things together and hoped you'd like it. It's so fun getting packages! :0 Can't wait to get yours.....any day now! Let me know if you want to ever swap again.
Comment: Love it! Love it! Loved it ! I am terrified of the heights Even getting up on a chair to reach something high up in the cupboard makes my kness shaking and my legs going numb But I saw this in a documentary not long ago and was impressed by those boys So thank you Beth
Comment: im not to sure which paper you used to stamp on but there not on white card-stock. when i went to color it in the ink you stamped in smeared , it even smeared when i went to ink around it with a sponge. * rating 5 because they was stamped images.
Response: I am so sorry that you are disappointed. I followed the directions exactly (I thought). Black ink, right size of stamp, card stock (yes I did use white card stock), etc. I even stamped them on the matte side just to AVOID the smearing possibility. Used good ink (Colorbox), waited 2 days to dry before mailing, etc. I guess even with all that, I didn't do it right for you. :(
Comment: Hi Beth! Got your PC today! I love it! I have been to Chicago and I LOVED Chicago! I do want to go back! If you come to Mpls, we'll go to the Twin's game, and I'll go with you to the Cub's game when I go to Chicago! Deal? Happy swapping to you!
Response: Yes! I would love to go to a MN Twins game! How fun. Thanks for hosting this swap and mailing your pc so fast!
