Comment: what an absolutely WONDERFUL scarf!!! I can totally appreciate all the work you put into it!!! <3 the weather here in NC is unusually cold... more snow than we are used to, so I am loving the nice warm scarf!! and the surprise and extras are absolutely perfect!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!
Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you liked it. I worked very hard on making the scarf and playing with different patterns. Stay warm!
Comment: this was by far the best lie i received! at first i was like, what? who did what to my car? and then the light start getting brighter in my head...ooooooh, this is a liar liar postcard. Nice job :o)
Comment: Not going to say too much in this comment, since I think you're right and penpal swaps don't last half as long as they ought to, so I'm going to write you back :)
Just for the time being though- I loved it all (the magnets, the stickers, the lovely insightful letter, ALL OF IT)!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Cora Corelle. She has agreed to come to work with me and oversee the fish tank of Charlie Tuna, my betta. I know they will be very happy together. PS The Hello Kitty stickers will look great on his tank!
Comment: Oh my gosh what a great package you sent me. I love everything the little purse (with all its goodies) and the tablet are so cute. The stickers, pencil, bookmark, postcard everything just great. You really deserve this heart and many more. Thank you soooooo much. Mary
Comment: Thanks very much I got my swap in the post today! I love the things you made for me, especially the apple pin and the squirrel are very cute and the cat pincushion. The squirrel made me laugh especially because yesterday in drama we put a new context to a play that it was outside in a woodlandy bit and we got branches as wings and tails etc - I was a squirrel...and we 'attacked' some other students who had no idea what was going on! It was all very funny... anyway, that's why the squirrel is particularly special! Also thanks very much for the kawaii memos and stickers :) They're super cute! Really enjoyed this swap! x
Comment: I've waited over a month and a half since the send by date and finally decided to rate. I really hate rating people anything less than a 5, but this swap was really disappointing. It was unfortunately mailed almost 2 weeks late, which by itself was not that big of a problem. But it also arrived postage due (saying I owed the post office $1.56 because it wasn't sent with sufficient postage). In addition to that, since you didn't package it in anything but a regular envelope, the matchbox was squashed, and the contents inside were damaged. A button that you sent broke and there were little pieces of it all over everything. I did email you about this, and you had said you would resend something Dec 14th, but I have heard nothing since then. Like I said, I really hate to rate less than a 5, but these kinds of situations are what the 3 rating is made for. Hope you understand. *Update* - Replacement received.
Response: hi, I sent the matchbox the same way I sent my others and they got it fine (It sounds like the packaged got tampered with in the mail and the postal workers resent it in another format and charged you for it. When I sent it, the worker weighed all the mail). you're rating me down because of what the post office did. I did work really hard on your felt owl and tree and filled the matchbox full of stuff I thought you might enjoy. I admit that I did send it late due to school and that I would send you another matchbox but have not done so yet. I still plan on sending you the matchbox to make up for the smashed one you received, I just have yet to make it because I have bigger concerns at the moment. The only promise I can make at the moment is that you're going to get it sometime in January. I'll send you a message when it's ready to go out.
Comment: Thank you so much. I recieved it today and I will write back soon:0
Response: D: heartbreak! I sent your letter a couple weeks ago. dammit, i put a lot of thought and a fun things in it too. IF it's already been a few weeks, it's probably lost then. I love penpals, I'll send you another letter when I get a chance.
*resent penpal letter on Nov 27
Comment: I LOVED what you sent!! The bees are so cute I can hardly stand it! You sent all the stuff I love, it was really fun! I put the mini panda bear in my new dollhouse and the bees will go in a special shadowbox of treasures! I will use and enjoy everything you sent! Thanks so much!! :)
Comment: WOW WOW WOW!! Where do I begin?? Let's see..okay with the yarn. I love the ladder yarn as well as the PUNK yarn. OMGosh!! You did such an amazin' job with this yarn ball! I'd never seen PUNK yarn before. I really dug all the little Kawaii notes, I thought it was cool how they were all kind of hidden everywhere. Your bee is tooooo cute! It's my first crocheted item--I had seen these little guys in CRAFT or on Etsy and had been coveting one for quite some time!! It sits proudly on me collection shelf :) I need to work on my knittin' skills to make that bonnet. My cousin and I always joke about them. They're hilarious! The nuns were an amazin' bonus! I love 'em!! Did I mention I love tiny things? ;) The vending machine toy is CLASSIC! I love the peanut and that I now own me own piece of Florida land. The bracelet is waaaay cool! That's a cool way of makin' bracelets. I just hope I can find wire like that around here. You definitely made my day with this amazin' swap! As soon as things calm down out here I'll be writin' back :)
Comment: Yay thank you I loved everything! ^^ I am writing a letter back soon... do you think you could message me your address? My mom was being tidy and threw away the packaging >___<;x Aiyah! THANK YOU! <3
Comment: This was a great package - I loooove the bee (the blythe can go jump, it's MINE!) and the felt pin is gonna look great on the new red scarf I am knitting! All these great goodies were worth the wait and effort - thanks Loretta!
