Very nice pic! My hubby remarked that you had to have gotten up pretty early to get that pic! I like the washi tape - not familiar with it, but it adds a touch. I don't know how you made rounded edges!
Thanks again! Good swap!

Comment: Thanks for the card, Shells; we have those trees here too... are they decorative cherry blossoms?? And yep, we are currently killing weeds in our community garden plot, in prep of the planting. :) Happy Day!
Comment: Thanks for the stamp bags. I had already had one of them previously but it's all good...all the ones I had put in there were gone and all new ones ;) Also, I noticed there was a stamp that had self-adhesive still on it. It was sticking to all the other stamps. I ended up replacing it with a new one. Just thought I'd mention it....
Response: Thank You for the rating with a heart. Sorry for the repeat bag. That was really nice of you to replace the sticky one.
I am sending you a new bag of postage stamps.As a huge Thank You :)
Comment: Oh my gosh! Where did you get the cute stamps tape you used on some of these envies? I really like them all but was so drawn to those in particular. The lavender colored stamped dragonfly envie is another favorite of mine. So cute. I also love the teapot stamped envie and the flowers stamped envie. Oh shucks! I like em all. Great job, Shells. Thanks for swapping with me. I will enjoy writing happy bits and bobs in them.

Comment: Thank you soo much for the beautiful photos you sent me. I do wish I could go to Princeton but it have to be a pipe dream unless someone leaves me a heap of money, haha. I loved the note about all the things you can do there, it made my imagination run a little especially the paper source com. America has so much beautiful stuff for crafting I could have a field day in your shops.My husband was most impressed with the photos too as he loves me to take photos of places we go all the time. Thanks again for your swap and hope to see you again.

Comment: The apple picture was awesome. I wish I could have the file of that pic I would get it done larger for my kitchen. The fireman hat reminds me of my grandson Dallas he just had his photo done in rubber boots and a fireman hat so I will add it to his album. You talked of a red wagon but the photo was not included :( I would love to see it. I love little red wagons, I have no idea why.
Response: lol,I printed that little red wagon to. When I posted your swap I could not find it. I have it on file along with the apples. What size apple pix would you use? I will look up the wagon & apple & send to you :) The fire helmet pix. I made two copies. I gave one to a co workers little boy.

Comment: Thanks -- I really like the card! And yes, all the daylight in AK in the summer is great. We used to go fishing when my husband came home from work, even when he worked 10 hour days because of the short construction season. And I loved the winter dark, too, although some people found it oppressive. I try to get to Fairbanks in March whenever I can for the World Ice Art Championships. I hope you get there some day -- itis beautiful! Happy swapping!

Comment: Thank you so much! The cats are loving the treats, the toys I'm saving for when they can go outside and play with them, they are driving me nuts as it is ;P Those labels sent me right down memory lane, they look so much like labels for floppy discs! I would never have thought to use them for anything else. Sometimes your brain is stuck in old patterns. They -are- perfect for other kinds of labeling too =)
Response: I am happy you like the package I sent.Thanks for the hearts & rating for this swap & the stamped image.
Comment: thankyou loved the photo frame and postcard. Are you able to get postcards of other stadiums?

Comment: Hi shellsajerseygirl! Been trying to leave your rating but I keep getting knocked off my server. Lady you OUTDID yourself!!:) I was sooo amazed at the variety of items you were able to stuff in that little box. And you were right, my son loved it. He made his claim on several items right out the get-go.LOL!! I have never seen eyelet snaps before...they will come in really handy.My husband is "eyeing" the silver brads for his miniature airplanes...he makes them from scratch and uses brads for their "noses"...these are the old-timey airplanes like from WW1. You did an awesome job and I REALLY APPRECIATE all the items you sent...it was like you were reading my mind!!:) Hope you have a GREAT DAY!! If I haven't said it before WELCOME to Swap-bot!!Ciao!:) Happy Swapping!
Response: I am very glad you like your package.I have a son about the same age as yours.Being a newbie, I never did this before.
