Comment: Thank you for another package of beautiful beads! I always like to see your name on the return address because I know it will be an good selection of beads that I will enjoy using. I like to make ornaments with beads and these are all perfect for that.
Response: So thrilled you like them...you always send me good stuff as well...Thank you for the rating...Have a Merry Christmas
Comment: You get extra points for being able to fit all of those goodies in that small rate box. Hahah. I was very impressed and i cannot wait to go through these bags. I will be using most of them for little junk journal dangles. Thank you very much for your wonderful swap! PS: I also want to say that I already have saw some beautiful pieces that i can wear to work. The purple rock-ish looking bracelet is totally me and I went "OOOOoooooOO" when I saw it.
Response: Awsome!! I will tell you it was definitely a chore getting those bags in that box..lol..but I wanted you to have as much fun trying to get them out as I did putting them in..funny..lol..I so happy u liked some of the pieces...I enjoyed them for a season now its someone else's turn to enjoy them, thanks for the rating
Comment: Sorry that this rating came so late. I absolutely loved the unique assortment of beads you sent. I adored the white heart bead as well as the wonderful faceted and mother of pearl ones. This is what I love so much about this swap!
Response: It's okay, I was worried they might have gotten lost in the mail...im so glad you liked them...I love these swaps by the way...
Comment: Oh, my! I am in love with my chunky charm. You did a beautiful job! I can't stop staring at it. The box was lovely too. Also, thank you for the extra crystals and charms. This has been one of my favorite swaps. I will treasure it. Thank you.
Response: Awww, im glad you liked it, it was so fun making it...thank you for the rating and heart..
Comment: I always like getting bead swaps from you ~ you send the best stuff! I like the turquoise pieces because I grew up in Arizona and that's my favorite stone.And its my favorite color too, so I like that you included a lot of turquoise colors. I like the crystals and extras too!
Response: Awww, I love to make my fellow beaders happy...you hooked me up quite a bit on the purple beads so I wanted to return the blessing...im so glad you liked them..thank you for the rating and heart..
Comment: Lesley, wow incredible package, everything was perfect, ideas are just bibbling. Angry bird washi? THIS IS GREAT, but the most special piece I got was the bookmark with philippians 4:17 it was an answer to prayer, so thank your heavenly Father that he used you to bless and speak to me! Thank you so much.
Response: Im glad I had a partner to share the Scriptures of encouragement with, you know your answered prayer has helped me this morning, sometimes we get in a rut and think "God am I even helping anyone anymore, or encouraging anyone in the word anymore, am I being used or am I usable?" Then you give this great testimony of how a simple bookmark with scripture on it was used by God to help you and encourage you and im humbled because I realize that God uses the little things to speak to us as well as the big ones..Thank you for sharing it means so much. Im so happy you liked everything...
Comment: Hi Lesley,
YOur Love Bird ATC is absolutely beautiful and so creative. i love you replicated it from a photograph. i wish I knew how to do that. I am new at ATC and you are someone I would love to grow up and be like.
The extras were awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Response: Awww, thank you for the kind words of inspiration. I quit doing ATC's for a while because I got bored with them, now im inspired to do more. My ability to draw is a God given talent I'm thankful for, I guess I need to use it more. Im sure you'll find what art technique works for you and it will be gorgeous, even more than mine...so glad you enjoyed everything. Thank you for the rating and heart.
Comment: This was a wonderful assortment of jewelry pieces. Finding the three guitar picks was very exciting since I collect them as they go with my mini guitar collection. I enjoyed your little note too. That's the wonderful thing about crafters: whatever becomes of no use to one is a treasure trove to another!
Response: That's so true, ive found so much use out of junk..lol.. im glad you enjoyed the pieces, I don't even know half of what I put in there, I just started stuffing, sad thing is I have so much more..thanks for the heart and rating...

Comment: Thank you for the nice YELLOW Package. It's definitely fuzzy sock season. Just started getting quite a bit colder here. I love the pen. I have a thing about fun pens.

Response: I handraw all my ATC's I love drawing and it's an opportunity for me to express my artistic ability, maybe we will be paired up in another ATC swap or we could do a private swap...
Comment: Hi Lesley,
What a wonderful envelope of goodies. You are so awesome and talented. It means a lot when someone goes to the profile and picks one of my favorite things - peacocks. What a beautiful card you designed with your own hand drawing. Yes it is vintage. I will cherish it forever.
I need to start a webpage for the few photographs that I would like to feature. Well more than a few. I work so much I am lucky to do my pocket letters and get them mailed.
I just started learning how to do ATCs so the stickers will help me get there. Thank you for the pages from Blackbeard Ghosts - I love stories but also I can use the pages for doing stampping on.
thank you and I hope we will be paired in a swap again.
Response: Hello, I'm so glad you enjoyed the peacock drawing, I love hand drawing my ATC's, so when people like them it delights me. I found the black beards ghost book at the college, they were throwing it away so I grabbed it..glad you liked every thing...happy swapping
Comment: Thanks so much. The coin purse is so unique and I love the pen too. And thank you for the extras. And you did a great job on the envelope
Response: Oh, im so glad you liked everything, I loved the little chevron coin purse too. I just started making envelopes my sister dose swap bot too and she got me started, you received my first attempt
Comment: AWESOME PENS! Thanks for joining in on my swap. (: Thank you also for the fun extras! I will be writing little notes in my owl notepad with my owl pen XD
Response: I thought the owl pen and pad went together too well to be separated...plus I always like to surprise with extras, I'm glad you liked them, and I love pen swaps, we just don't have enough of them...happy swapping

(: let me know if you ever want to swap ATC's one on one with me, btw, I would be happy to draw you something from my heratige.
Response: Thank you for the 5 and the heart. Honestly I appreciate your straight forward profile.

Comment: Oooh, thank you so much for reading my profile! I especially love the book pages.
