Comment: Thank you. What helped me out with adding photos was on the forums on top there is a help section and on it is a post about adding photos to your profile. Hope this helps you. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
Response: Thanks tryed all that just can’t seen to get to do it
Comment: Thanks so much for the first of my advent goodies. I loved that you managed to find a Christmas card too.
I've not had a peek so I haven't added a heart yet but might well do once I've opened them.
Response: Thanks for the rating
I’m in Christmas swaps all over the year so I’m well stocked up on Christmas cards
Comment: So nice to hear from you again! Thanks for the flower seeds - I'll try my best to grow them in the spring. Love the post cards, I don't have any( until now) of London in my collection! Thanks again for everything and Happy Swapping! Jen
Response: Hi Jen
It’s been ages since we were partners
But I’m glad you liked the pc and seeds
Keep in touch
Comment: thank you for the postcard! It's funny that I received this card, because I have the whole collection in a booklet and I have no idea either what do with it and I don't have the heart either to throw them away. But as a written and stamped piece, it's a nice addition to my collection, thank you for it!
Response: Glad you liked it happy postcard collecting 😀
Comment: I haven't rated you because I didn't mark down if I got a card from you, so I'm taking the blame that I didn't rate and giving you a 5 and a heart! I'm sorry, I am just drawing a blank. I see you sent it in June, so it must have come.... Sorry I am so foggy about it.
Comment: I loved how you made an envelope from your stationery. I don't know how you did that! Can't wait to try the tea! Looks yummy! I will plant the dianthus soon! Now we have warm weather, so it will be good! Thank you very much!!!
Comment: I absolutely loved your packaging. I am hoping to recycle it and reuse to make someone else's day a bit brighter. Your gifts are already in their stocking. I can not wait to open them up. Thank you so much.
Response: pm if you like some more pop in post for you.
hope you like everything i sent
Comment: Thank you so much! Everything is cute and awesome! How did you find something with my name on it? I am 52 years old and have never had a key chain or anything that has my name on it because my spelling is different. Thank you!
Response: Had them made specially made for you hope you like everything I sent to you
If you like to do a private swap sometime please let me know Andrea
Comment: I found yours today lying near my mailbox, soaking wet - apparently the mailman missed the box. Makes it easy to open. Fortunately, the dream-catcher was in a water-proof envie. Did you make this? It's gorgeous! I've always liked the combination of pink and silver. Thank you!
Response: Omg ðŸ˜® glad you received it and glad you liked it ðŸ˜ŠðŸŽ„â¤ï¸ðŸ’thank for the heart â£

Opened your card December 2 and what a beautiful card it is, thank you very much
Response: Thanks so much for the heart â£ glad you liked the stamp I love the stamp ðŸ‡¬ðŸ‡§

Response: I thought it might make you smile
I read it and nearly fell off my chair

Comment: Ahhhhh! It felt like a mini-birthday or Christmas opening my mailbox just now :D Thank you so much for the lovely, thoughtful package, from the cheery red and white snowflake-sprinkled mailer to the beautiful gold and white paper bags, the classy gold foiled floral washi (reminiscent of Chanel's camellias and Revolutionary Girl Utena's rose crest :), yummy teas (I can't wait to drink them in the evenings when I finish Swing Time!), and adorable Totoro bookmark that made me squeal! Thank you for brightening my Wednesday considerably, Andrea :) I hope your mailbox is always full of the same joy â™¥â™¥
Comment: I hope you are doing well. I received your letter today all torn up and taped back together. The pen was missing but I am sure you sent so you get a 5 and heart just because. Some machine really tore your letter and envelope up. I did get the tea bags, some how they survived the mangling. Thank you.
Response: im sorry to here that i will resend swap please accept my apoligies
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Spring PC! I am chomping at the bit to start my seeds, but have to wait just a while longer! We usually go out to Amook, to stay, in April, and my greenhouse is out there, so will soon be able to start my seeds. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you for the great coloring book. I opened my present, could never wait 10 months with an unopened Christmas present. I hope you don't mind and I hope you are doing well. Have you gone to the hospital yet? I keep you in my thoughts.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful, inspirational PC! PM me your addy and I will write you back. Note: I had addy labels made with my swap-bot id on them so I could put them on my PCs, so my partners would have my addy, in case they wanted to write back to me. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Amazing bookmark! Many thanks. Just started reading Starhawk's new book CITY OF REFUGE, so will make good use of it. I met her when we both lived in Minnesota and her book takes place in the future where San Francisco, CA is now. This is the 3rd in her series.
Response: Glad you liked it always a pleasure to swap with you
Comment: Thank you so much for my parcel. It has been wrapped so nicely! I wanted to wait until Christmas to open it, however my cat has been attacking the box...turns out she knows what was inside (kitty biscuits!) and couldn't wait! I'll open the other goodies at Christmas! Thank you!
Comment: Misty says thank you so much for her fantastic parcel. I'm keeping some for Christmas - she thinks I'm terribly cruel - but the biscuit has been thoroughly enjoyed and we're laughing our heads off as she is stalking the light up tree as if it's a small sheep. A lovely swap and a lovely parcel
Response: im glad misty loved her parcel it was fun choosing items for her

I especially love the teas, reindeer clear stamp and well, everything really made me happy, thank you!
Comment: Thank you Andrea, for all the items. You sent a lot! I really wasn't expecting all of it. I love the little clothespin soldier and bell santa especially. I shared some of the candy with my daughters. I really hope you like my package. I know I didn't send as many items, but I hoped the quality and total value made up for it. If there is any issue, or it did not arrive safely. Please let me know. Thank you again, and Happy Holidays!
Response: thanks glad you liked everything always a pleasure to put a swap together ....
Comment: Hello Andrea! Before I opened your envie I got a whiff of an absolutely delicious aroma! It was the Yorkshire tea ;+) I can't wait to brew some for myself. I loved your note, too! Although we get Twinings tea in the U.S. I've never seen that variety here. Thanks so much!

Comment: Thank you so much for the fabulous swap. It was so much fun to open each package and I love the little glittery squirrel card.

Response: let me know if you want to do another swap .. thanks
Comment: Thanks for the advent calendar which arrived today. Unfortunately the calenar didn't made it through the mail and half of the chocolate is outside the calendar. But I will be enjoying the chocolate anyway:) Also thanks for the tea you enclosed
Response: in the one you sent me it arrived bent and battered and chocolates have fallen to bottom but as it post office fault I didn't think it be a issue.so I didn't mention it when I rated you a 5 and heart,
Comment: I've been holding my Yuletide surprises for December, so I haven't opened yours, but it really smells good! Can't wait to open it! (Of course, I may just break down here before too long and open it!). Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute fuzzy socks and earrings, I love the magnet and the snowman stamper and the fuzzy lil draw-string bag it came in, the tiny card was so cute. My daughter will love what you sent her for her wedding gift (I did not open it) Thank you xoxo Sherry
Response: glad you received everything sherry ...another parcel will be on it way to you next week.
Comment: I can not believe I did not rate you for this, it's been to long. I was looking through my finished swaps and I freaked out when I realized i forgot. I loved the whole thing. Royal Mail, the letter was sweet and the tea was perfect. Thank you
Comment: Just to let you know a parcel arrived today. I have put it safely away and will be back once I have opened it to update :)
Sorry I have taken so long to come back and let you know that I loved my parcel, thank you xx
Comment: I would give you lots more hearts if I could. Your hot chocolate package was wonderful and I am going to save my Kinder Eggs for very special occasions. Thank you so very much for such a wonderful package
Response: wow that was so quick....glad you liked everything
Comment: Thank you so much :) Can't wait to open it - and I hope nothing is broken. The post officer pushed it into the mail box to it's limit :(
Thanks for the Disney Card Set. I just can't weat the sox, they have polyamid in them and aren't my size.
Comment: This swap deserves a heart because you sent 5, not 4 packets of food, each wrapped in Christmas paper and you also sent extras. Also, you used real stamps on the envelope.
Unfortunately customs seized the cat food - but I did get the empty wrapping. Not your fault at all. The customs letter says there were 5 pkt of cat food treats/biscuits and drops, weighing 340 grams. "The importation of animal derived pet food to Australia is prohibited. Your goods have been destroyed free of charge as they posed an unacceptably high biosecurity risk." Bah! Humbug! Anyway, as always, I wish you
Happy swapping. â™¥
Comment: What a lovely package! Thank you so very much for the packaging and care you put into it as well....it makes even the simplest things that much more special. The post card from your town, and Yorkshire tea made me feel like I was visiting with you! Your selection of gold, sparkly washi tape is spot on and will be used with much love! Thank you again...
Response: glad you liked it let me know if you like more yorkshire tea i have boxes full of it ...and sliver washi tape if you like a roll
Comment: .It's me again! I have been collecting all of these things for years as well: Nutcrackers, reindeer, deer, stags, and so many birds. I can never have too many ornaments, since I can always get another tree, haha. I would love to do a private swap for Christmas. Anime is a bit hard to find, but if you send me a wish list, I'll see what I can do.
Response: grant loves Anime he 21 next month so I'm trying to find him Anime or gothic items he loves dragons as well...if you fancy a swap for any of these items ..im trying to get him surprises as we don't have many family...take care sofia chat later. Andrea
Comment: Hi, thanks for reading my profile again! I have been collecting Christmas ornaments and things, too, so I've already nearly finished your Secret Santa. : ) I love celebrating Christmas early, lol.
Response: I promise I wont peek lol bought loads of things I hide them away and forget where I put them lol
Comment: Its been my pleasure..and i can't wait for the letter. oh the magnet i am so glad you like it. I love that church,I attended for a number of years when I lived in the capital. its under restoration and will be re-opened soon. thanks for my comment <3

Response: I'm glad you liked everything magnet swaps are the most popular...
Comment: Hey there, your tea arrived today! I'd been wondering what this tea tasted like! Australians like their tea bold, and this tastes quite similar to traditional billy tea (brewed in a tin can over a campfire). I'm trying it with milk because that's the way you have it, but next I'm going without! Thanks so much, have a lovely day :)
Response: thanks for the rating glad you received it
Comment: I just received your package this weekend, it was so much fun to open! Thank you for all of this delicious candy, we all loved trying something new, and so much to choose from. I love the Big Ben magnet and the keychain is fantastic! The wire is perfect for making jewelry and decorations, too. Thank you again for such a great swap, I love it all!!
Comment: Thank you ! What an offer ! Sure I want them, nbo question, maybe I can send you something chrismassy in return (ornament, paper bag) ? Just let me know. Who tells you, that you arent great at your crafts ? And istn it about the fun we have while crafting ?!!! Forget about "judegments", just enjoy it and let it flow !!!
Response: thanks for the comment yeah that be great private swap pm me we set it up.
I'm no good lol at crafts but I keep on trying.
Comment: Thank you for commenting my wall. I wish I had started writing at such a young age. I remember sitting in class and having my teacher tell us that we were going to write a card and I remember not being interested. I'm so interested now. Thank you
Comment: Thank you for the lovely profile comment! Yes, we do have a lot in common, and I have already begun to plan my Christmas swaps, so I look forward to that! You are my favorite swapper here, too, it has been a lot of fun getting to know you. : ) Sofia

Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the letter .look forward to your letter enjoy the tea.
Comment: I looked up Yorkshire tea after reading your message- looks like it's a family owned brand, that's so nice! I wonder how it compares to Australian tea. Traditionally we like our tea pretty bold and aggressive, ha ha. Anyway, thanks for the fun read, have a nice day!
Response: yes its well known tea.. thanks for joining in.
Comment: Thank you so much for the spectacular Tower of London magnet, it is by far one of my new favorites! I also love the extra Dracula magnet, how fun! Thanks for another great swap with beautiful stamps and wrapping paper. : )
Response: I'm glad you liked it saw it and thought of you.
Comment: Thanks for the postcard. The postmark is from Sheffield, not sure if that is your town or just the nearest post office that postmarks when mail comes through... But my favorite band is from Sheffield and I've always wanted to visit there. :) I am surprised to hear that you can't buy hot chocolate with marshmallows in England! I see why you would enjoy that swap.
Response: As Sheffield is our major city in southyorkshire all our mail is picked up from Doncaster and taken to Sheffield to be sorted and postmarked Doncaster is a town not a city like Sheffield Sheffield is famous for bands and actors Sean bean is born in Sheffield
Comment: Thank you very much for the nice swap, I like how they are packaged. The question is how to endure until December?????........ (my husband is sure that I can tolerate a maximum of 2-3 months :( .... )
Response: im glad you received them hope you like everything i sent
Comment: Dear Andrea, thank you so much for the present!! It arrived today, can't wait to open it at Christmas!!

You're a sweetheart!! Thank you for such a wonderful present. Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
