Comment: What heavenly smells you sent me. And calorie free too. The body wash went straight to my corner of the bathroom (I have the large corner LOL) and the body lotion by my bedside. I appreciate them. Thank-you!
Comment: What a wonderful birthday surprise!!! Thank you so very much, Sondra, for my wonderful, thoughtful presents! I absolutely love everything - the hand towels are beautiful! the DD giftcard is generous and will be put to great use! and I love the Burt's Bees chapstick! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!
Comment: Hey, sorry for the delay in rating. I appreciate what you sent, and thank you for it, but also want to add that this was a swap for washi tape, and you sent me plastic deco tape. While the deco tape was thoughtful (you sent me black cats like I love!) it was quite damaged in how you packaged it, with lots of permanent creases made into them deco tape due to haphazard wrapping. I should have made it very clear that washi tape is not simply any random tape, so I don't want to give you a 3 based on that. I was ambiguous. Thank you for what you sent, and for participating in my swap! Hope you have a nice day :) x
Comment: Thanks for the nice selection of buttons. I really love the simple plastic colored buttons like the yellow and red one that you sent and I love the big blue triangle one. I've never seen one like it before!
Comment: hello & thank you!
it's so pretty how ombre blues look ... makes me think of nice scenes of water or sky!
when I use the cloth, it will be for my face: would hate to ruin it on dirty dishes!
have a very festive February now ~
Comment: Thanks for the great assortment of cards and envelopes, and I love the labels! One thing -- I didn't see your swap-bot name anywhere or the name of the swap, so it took me a few minutes to figure out what this was (the mailing label covered part of your address label so I couldn't see your full name on the outside). Thanks for the happy mail!
Comment: You are amazing! So generous! Your package came just at the perfect moment when Emily fell and broke her new mirror, she opened the stocking full of gifts! Wow just wow! It dried her tears instantly! Thank you so much, we are saving the rest to open on our trip to nc. One million hearts to you!!!!!
Comment: I received the packs of postcards today!!! I totally love them!!! I have just joined an online course and I have a few ladies who really need encouraging so this will be perfect for them Thanks so much!!!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely items that you sent me! I don't have a handheld blackjack player like this and my husband will LOVE it. I enjoy blackjack, but it's not my strong suit. Maybe with the help of this, I can learn the game a little better! :P I love the yarn and can't wait to put it to good use!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard of the Kentucky State Capitol. It will certainly fit into my collection (or I will make a new collection for it). I will send your postcard out in the next few days.
Comment: Yay, my first personalized stamp! Thanks so much for this, Sondra, I was hoping someone would buy that off my Etsy favorites at one point. :) I can't wait to use it in my swaps and penpal letters!
Response: You are very welcome. I ordered yours and then I wanted one too. So, I ended up ordering me one, and I LOVE it. Enjoy!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful stamps that you picked out for me! They are wonderful and the seller sent me a freebie! So please leave her good feedback. :) I can't wait to start using these on letters and swaps!
Response: GREAT!! So glad you got them, and that you liked them. Wonderful about the extra. She said she would throw in something extra, so I will rate her good on this swap.
Comment: What a wonderful PC! I love the site of all the buggies along the road. . . quite the procession! And the stamp is great but certainly you had to spend lots more postage to get it!! Thanks for the great PC . . . happy swapping ~
Comment: I adore this postcard! My husband and I climbed to the top of Clingman's Dome on our honeymoon and still have many memories of how worn out we were and how terrified we got while climbing up to the observatory! lol
Comment: Hello Sondra,
Thank you for the colorful notecards you sent me for this swap. They will be added to my collection of notecards and I will be used as I need them. Thank you also for the stickers you sent along with the notecards.
Comment: Thank you for the Kentucky Quilt Barns postcard. Sometimes in PA we see the hex signs on the barns. Something different I know but still interesting. Yes our weather turned to spring... and then quickly to summer. Today was 90 :p It's supposed to cool back down to 60s and 70s this weekend though.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the goodies!!!I I love everything!! The wallet is perfect for day trips, the butterfly light is already on my window ledge in my office. The stickers have found their way into my scrap bag, the note cards are already in use and the bag is in my purse for shopping:):)Thanks again
Comment: Thank you! What a crafty magnet! The cute marshmallows will be given to my nieces and nephews on Easter. The metal crochet hook is the perfect size for teaching crochet with and a memo pad is always handy. :)
Comment: Hi there! Got the note cards today - thank you so much, and for including an extra one! :-). I especially liked the candy one, the "naughty" one, and the double folded one! Thank you again :-)
Comment: Thank you for the Great Smoky Mountains Cades Cove card! Stay warm there - here it is 28 degrees for a low with a wind chill that makes it feel like 18. We've gotten lots of snow in the last day or so, too... I am so ready for it to warm up already!! :)
Comment: A big New York hell rite back at ya. The covered bridges were nice. They are really popular around here as well. We take the kids over to one real close by and picnic they really enjoy swimming there as well. Thanks.
Comment: I love everything you sent. As soon as my St Patrick's Day decorations are taken down Monday, I'll put Easter decorations up! Love the decorations for the window; I'll use the plates & napkins on Easter weekend. I LOVE Peeps so I'm keeping them to myself!! Thank you & HUGS!
Comment: OMG, you could not have made my day any more than you did with this choice of cards. You took me back home for the day!!! I LOVE Cades Cove, have not been there in many years. I do miss the beautiful Smokey Mountains. Thanks much for a trip down memory lane.
Comment: ha ha....thanks..i had not seen this hoover dam sucks card before! we pass by there about every 3 months or so to visit my dad but haven't been since they started charging and rerouted the bridge.
Comment: Great stuff-love it all-the dogs are hilarious-I know one of those dogs! And the note cards and postcards all the other stuff is great-thanks for sharing and swapping! And it is snowing her abit tonight!!
Comment: Hi Sondra! I just loved the cards you sent! The coal-mining card really hit home--my father grew up in Coalton, Ohio, and his family were coal miners. I also loved the Bruce McCall cards. I have one of his picture books and I love to make envies out of the pages, so I am familiar with his designs and really like them. Thank you so much for all the special cards.
Comment: What a fun package! The piggy bank is so cute...think I'll use him every year as a Valentine decoration. The glass is perfect with the grip around the center...it won't fall out of my hand, especially in the car. Thanks so much!
Response: You are so very welcome. Glad you like the things I sent you.
Comment: OMG, I feel special I never got a notecard with Paula Deens name on it before but I know that she has cooking books and maybe a TV show on cooking. And, the litlte baby angel is so adorable I wanna reach throught the card & give her a big hug :-) Betsy Lane is where I use to go to the dentist when I was way younger. Thank you so much for all the notecards!! I wanna give a double heart but it wont let me :-(
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcards. When I was in High School ( a long time ago) we went through there at dawn. I never forgot how beautiful it is.
I hope your weather stays nice this winter.
Comment: Thank you for the amazing package! My kiddos enjoyed so much pulling out all the surprises that were inside! :) ...And they will make a wonderful edition to our lunch boxes this week! Would give you more hearts if I possibly could!
Comment: Thank you for the bear! I'm not sure if I think it's cute... It seems pretty scary to sleep in such a pretty wooden house knowing there are bears walking outside! Or don't they do harm? We don't have anything wild walking loose here, the worst thing that ever happened to me was a young bull in my garden eating all my carrots... :)
Comment: Sondra, it's not even september,and 3 weeks till my birthday,but I opened my gift anyway! Don't tell the other bd swappers! Thank you sooo much for everything! What a generous gift giver you are, I loved everything,and thanks for thinking of my family. I will be giving some lucky grand daughters those suckers. Thanks again for your generosity!
Response: You are so very welcome, Becky. So glad you enjoyed everything, and my lips are zipped about opening early. LOL What date is your birthday? Mine is the 20th.
Comment: Your package was awesome, thank you. I'm especially fond of the sparkly purple polish (I love purple, sparkles, and nail polish, so this was a hat trick) and the tiny, fuzzy dotted notecards. I have many plans for them now. Your package made my day, thank you :)
Response: So very happy that you liked the things I chose for you.
Comment: Thanks for adding to my National Parks postcard collection. My only time out east, we drove through park of the Great Smoky Mountains--in the DARK! We couldn't see much but a winding road. It was so disappointing. I'll be back someday though.
Comment: wow ty for the extra pc's and the cookbook
Response: I did not know you did not receive this. I will resend today, and hope that you will re-rate me. I have NEVER not sent my swaps, and I am so sorry that this happened to you. I sincerely do apologize.

Comment: WOW! Thank you so much for the super envie you sent for the "What's your initials" swap.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely wildflowers PC and wish I didn't have to rate you a '3' but you were so late. I realize you were going through some rough times and had you initiated the communication it would have been different but that was not the case. I hope things are getting better for you.

Comment: Oh by the way I did win $10.00, so an extra thanks, but how do I cash it in ? LOL

That is a trip on my list to go one day. lol Hawaii. I have always wanted to go.

Response: Can you please let me know why you gave me a 3 rating? I sent out the same cards to all of my partners, and I got 5 ratings from all but you, so I was just curious. Is there anything I can do to get you to change this rating. I can resend if there was a problem with the last card. Please let me know. Thanks. Hugs......Sondra
Comment: Hi, Sondra!
I liked your choice of postcard a lot! At first glance I could think it was a free/ad card but it is far from this! It is a very good folklore card! Thanks a lot!
Btw, do you know if Ohio has any kind of state card which shows flag, map, bird, tree, animal, all in one card? I have received one from Montana and it is great! Imagine one from each state!
Comment: Hello Sondra, how nice to 'meet' you again! Thank you for the delicious recipe for Greek salad dressing. It never occured to me to put in so much coriander; I guess this makes all the difference! Hugs and much love, Malgosia [Keti] :-)
Comment: Hi, we meet again, Stellar Swapper! Thank you for the mouthwatering recipes. I love them all! That chicken alfredo is particularly tempting... I look forward to much cookin'! Best wishes, as ever, Keti (who is salivating all over her keyboard... ;-)
Comment: I received the package from you in yesterday's mail delivery. I watched *Coal Miner's Daughter* a gazillion times as a kid and then read the book, so I was diggin' the Butcher Hollow postcard in particular. Many thanks.
Comment: Thanks for the card. My sis has a yellow lab and he is about the sweetest, dumbest dog I have ever met. gotta love 'em :-) Some time I'll have to tell you about the night he jumped into a cop car......
Comment: I really liked that the piece that showed the name of your newspaper showed my wedding anniv. (Sept 10th)and good thing neither my husband OR I, like to do dishes!! We just eat out, a lot and use a lot of paper plates when we don't. Thanks for a great swap!
Comment: I think it's funny that they actually record who consumes the most Pepsi. Well, I guess it makes sense for the company to keep track for business reasons, but it still tickles me. Great letter, thanks for sharing.
Comment: Thank you for your recipe for baked beans! I like it very much because it is so versatile, and the bacon gives it a little something extra. I absolutely loooooove the beautiful postcard of Myrtle Beach as well! Thank you for this swap. Hugs, Malgosia [Keti]
Comment: Thankyou for the buttons they arrived today, the sweet little box had been shattered in the post which was a shame, by looking at the packet I think someone had put a finger through the envelope, but I dont think the buttons had escaped. .Maybe we will swap again sometime in the future....Barbara
Comment: Audrey loved her package! Her eyes lit up like it was Christmas. She has'nt put the Polly Pockets down in 2 days. Thanks so much!
Response: I am so happy that she liked everything. I thought the Polly Pockets were so cute, and I know how much my granddaughter loves them, so I was hoping she would like them too. Thanks for letting me know she received the package.
