Comment: Hi girl! Thanks for the fantastic swap! I was over the moon with the teas you sent me, I had been wanting to try the Eggnogg'n tea for so long! You really made my day with it! I'll keep the stocking stuffer until Christmas and come back to add a comment after I've opened it, I'm sure I'll love it though! Have a happy Christmas! UPDATE: Thank you so much for the "tea time sheet mask", it's so cute and can't wait to use it! Hope you had a fun Christmas!
Response: So glad it reached you safely! I like the tea, hopefully you do as well!
Comment: Thank you for the nice card, post card and present. I am saving the gift till December. I did want to say the envie was open at the one end but I don't believe anything was missing.
Response: Hmm, I wonder how the envelope came open. Npthing should be missing from the swap as long as you got the wrapped gift and the PC I sent as an extra! Hope you like what I sent you once you open it in December!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your day with me; I enjoyed coming along! You are so fortunate to have spent a day with your mother. The tea looks delicious, the Christmas ornament will be so pretty on my tree this Christmas, and I appreciate the yummy recipe and the postcard. Great swap♥
Comment: Thank you for all the little surprises, love them all and I had a lot of fun unwrapping the ball (you did an amazing job with it!!). Little fun fact: I received your ball in the same box I sent out mine :D
Response: Hah haa, hilarious! I of course reused the box that Jayme sent me the same swap in :P
Comment: Thank you so much Angie for the bright/colorful flower flip book, it came out so pretty, I truly love it. Also, many thanks for all the fun embellishments for me to play with, I mean USE in future craft projects. Everything you sent was lovely, AnnaL.
Comment: Thanks for the card and the goodies. WOW has a system called transmog where we can make armor look like other pieces and you can design entire outfits. It's pretty neat. I haven't played in a while.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard!... I love Cherry blossoms too, I have a couple of Cherry trees in my yard and I love seeing them bloom!....foxes are super cute!!! Arlie Gardens is a place I go to photograph wildlife and flowers and they have 2 dens every year and the babies are so cute, I don't know how mom keeps up with them all!
Comment: Oh my gosh, Angie! Thank you so much for the many, many goodies! First of all, the ball was so cute I almost didn't want to undo it. :) I love everything you sent -- I've had my eye on that Sumikko Gurashi deco tape for awhile. And I love the Red Riding Hood memos. Oh, and the fuzzy alpacas! I could go on and on. :) Thank you so much! You made my weekend!
Response: Yay, I am so glad you liked it! I was having issues finding Crepe paper- apparently the party supply store was sold out... so I reused the paper Jayme used when she sent me my surprise ball, but the balls looked completely different- so cool how versatile the color scheme was!
Comment: Thanks for the pretty card, the stickers, and the Holiday Wishes! I don't like shopping at all, but it is better with my mom! I hope you guys find something great for your dad! Have a WONDERFUL Holiday!
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the pen and stickers! I LOVE that Chou-Fleur sticker sheet. I have one, but I've never used it so now I have one I can open and actually enjoy! Overall a really nice swap and it couldn't have come at a better time. =)
Response: So glad you liked it! Did I mention the Erasers were for your daughter? I don't remember :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the Star Wars stuff!! I love it all, but my son stole the mini Rubix cube! He loves those things!! And my daughter is threatening to steal the Vader bag! I'm going to have to hide it all!!!
Comment: Hi Angie! I agree that it is tough to think March is well marching on - yikes! We have also had crazy weather - did not make it to the St. Paddy's Day parade due to snow and cold temps, but now today the weather is ok for yard work - grrr! Not what I call fun! LOL! Thank you so much for the sweet St. Patrick's Day card and the washi tape! I don't have much in green, so this will come in handy! Wishing you and yours a fun St. Patrick's Day! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for stamps on envelope. Story is totally confusing to me after reading it several times. characters not developed so I know who they are. Sorry, but I am left in a puzzle as to what this story is really about.
Response: I am sorry that you did not enjoy the story or that it confused you. This was my fault- I usually create story stories as "day in the life" sort of snippets involving characters from the book I am writing, and did not think of how this would impact your understanding of the story since the character's development would have occurred beyond the scope of the short story I sent you. When reflecting, I realize that it would have made much better sense to someone familiar with the characters and the back story from the book that those characters are from. I have used those characters in other writing swaps for various stories without any issue, so I did not think it would make this difficult for you. Perhaps the swaps in this group are not for me. Thank you for the 5. Glad you enjoyed the stamps.
Comment: Thank you so much! LOVE the Hamilton box & buttons! They're both coming to work with me so I can display them. The swap cards are wonderful!! And musical stickers & washi tape will definitely come in handy. Not sure where I can put the calendar yet, but I'll find the right spot to use it this year and then use it in craft projects when the year is over. Thank you for a wonderful package!
Response: I am so glad you liked the items I found/created for you for this swap! I enjoyed putting it together for you!
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous rolo!! I adore it! Thank you too for the stickers and omg sentimental circus washi!?!?? I must never use it, ever! It's too precious, I'll just adore it periodically. Squeeee!!!!
Response: Yay! Glad you like it! Someone else sent me the SC washi, so I thought I would pass it along :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute card, love the washi tape too! Good luck with organizing, it takes a lot of time and patience and sometimes even willpower to determine what you need and what you want. So be thankful it's not your craft goodies :-P
Response: Glad you liked the card and washi tape! My schedule for work is changing- going back to working days, so hopefully that will give me time to organize, lol.
Comment: Hello Angie! Thank you for the beautiful positive thoughts postcard for Happy New Year's - ' 2017 you sent to me with the lovely quote. Hope you have a wonderful Happy New Year - '2017 and good January!
Response: You're very welcome, Kathryn, and thank you for the well wishes and heart :)
Comment: Wow! Thank you for all of the wonderful pink & red goodies you selected for me. The envelope was gorgeous and I almost (...almost) didn't want to open it. Thanks again for making a fun swap to open.
Comment: Omg omg omg! Are you serious?? WHY CAN'T I GIVE YOU FOUR HEARTS FOR THIS PACKAGE??! This was an amazing package, probably among the best swaps I've ever received, and I was squee:ing and flailing throughout going through everything in it. I am so happy with it, thank you SO much! I needed something awesome today, after a looong day at work, and this was MORE than awesome. THANK YOU!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything and that I was able to make your day better!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the Christmas goodies! I will put everything to good use! I plan to share the hot chocolate embellishments with my daughter tonight as we are iced in. Merry Christmas!
Comment: What a lovely reminder of America -- a Thanksgiving card! Very thoughtful -- thank you. I think there's only us and 1 other American family on the island. Thinking about making a short trip to Turkey or Morocco for Thanksgiving -- a little black Friday shopping!!! lol
Comment: LOVE the postcard! That's one of my favorite episodes! Written by Neil Gaiman, though I'm sure you know that. So funny how the card got to you and then to me! :D :D
Response: Yes, it was destined to come to you! Since I have the box with the SW set, the swapper I got the PC from is going to do a private swap with me so I have more more DW cards in my collection to send :)
Comment: Squee! Thank you! Love them, especially the bicycle ones and the $.05 raisins, lol!!
Response: So glad you like them! The .05 cent raisins one was made for me by another swapper here on the bot- Maybe from the Paper Dragon group? We had lots of fun carving stamps for our partners out of eraser or carving blocks!
Comment: I'm so excited for this swap!!! So I couldn't contain myself and opened a couple of the presents. And not in any order either. Lol I like to open by size and shape. :D So far I am in love with what you sent me!! The sushi deco tape!!! I am in love. And the Centimental circus sticker flake sack!!! Ahhh! And then I opened up one more, which was the cute sticker sheet! I loved how you packaged that one, which was why I opened that one up first. Lol I couldn't help myself. Thank you so much! I cannot wait to open up the others! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful PL and all the goodies inside. I love the washi samples and the stickers. Also, thank you for sharing part of your trip in your letter. That tied the whole swap together.
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely paper cut flower. I particularly liked your choice of papers -- I thought the bird pattern you used for the actual cutting worked very very well. And I had never thought of laminating a paper cut -- but it was such a good idea! I must try it next time. I'm glad you enjoyed the swap.
Comment: Thank you for the two wonderful inspiration cards. The rainbow tape is beautiful as a background! And I am a sucker for laser cut wooden shapes. Such detail. I especially like the bird card -- you are right -- that tape complimented perfectly. And your vintage background and quote are fabulous together. I will treasure these cards in my collection. Love the happy envie too! Thanks for joining another round of my swap and for making me feel so lucky to be your partner. <3<3<3
Comment: What a great washi card & samples too! That's how I like to make a lot of my washi cards - with the samples I've received. No worries if you ever send me duplicate samples - I love them all. The ones you sent were so cool & colorful, which I always enjoy! :)
Comment: Ok, my guess for the theme is... lolita? Lol. I love the color combo! The only other thing I can think of is like spooky sweets. Or punk / girly goth. :D Am I close? Lol. Thank you so much for the extra memos and the cute flakes!! They are too adorable. :)
Response: Nope! It was "Ribbons"! If you look on all the non-bow flakes, the characters have a bow on somewhere :)
Comment: Thanks for two more very cool ICs. I love working with vellum! Thanks for making them so profile specific. The color palette on the Memory one is exceptional. And the peaceful dragonfly has fabulous quotes. Love!! <3<3<3
Comment: Hi Angie! TY for the lovely pc and I love when I find pcs at thrift shops!! It totally makes my day to find such treasures! LOL! I have a bit of an addiction to pcs, note cards and paper in general - oops, don't tell, ok? LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the super cute coffee PL. I love the coffee key chain! I am a coffee junkie. I can't start the morning without a cup. I even collect special coffee mugs. The ice cream stickers are super cute too!
Response: I am so glad you like the pocket letter! I had gotten that key-chain a while back at Target and was waiting for something fun, like this pl theme, to use it for!
Comment: I'm so sorry for the late rating! this was an absolutely GORGEOUS pocket letter. The colors were so springy and I liked how the floral elements were there but the butterflies were still the mail focus. Thank you so much!
Response: I am so glad you liked the pocket letter! Thanks for the rating and heart :)
Comment: Hoooooray!!!! Thank you so very much for your lovely kawaii bunnies!! The flakes are super cute! And I love the memos! The one with the bunny, bear, cat and panda with all their tiny little mini thems....too cute >_< Many hearts your way!!! Thank you thank you!!!
Comment: â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ LOVE this pocket letter!! So many great little design details and textures, I spent minutes poring over it. And so happy to have another DW pl for my binder, yay!! Oh, and the little lego 10 with his tiny sonic screwdriver!?!?! Amazing! I didn't even know things like that existed. He's all set up by my life-sized sonic (10's--I keep 11's handy for sonic-ing purposes) and my vortex manipulator, heehee. Thanks so much! â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Response: I lurve the little blind DW lego figures! I got two of 10, so I've been saving that one for a while to send it out as a prezzie with something :) Glad you liked the PL!
Comment: Angie, What a cool Pocket Letter! Thank you so much for putting the Snoopy stickers on there! And love the quote too! It is all so cool and thank you for the goodies too - awesome handmade paper! thank you, darla
Comment: WOW! I really love the washi cards you made for me. The card designs are great and the colors you used are so striking together!! Plus, you gave me some of those same color tapes - yay! :) Thanks also for the scripture cards - so cool we are both Christians. Blessings to you, Beth
Response: I am so glad you like them, Beth :) I had fun making the cards for you, and I loved the blue and gold card especially! I am always excited when I find fellow Christians here on the bot, and was excited to find the scripture cards to pass along also
Comment: I love these eggs so much!!! Thank you a million times! The carrots were a fantastic choice ^_^ So cute! I really love everything you've put together for me, perfect little mini whimsy eggs! lol The deco tape is soo cute!! And the cabochons absolutely made my day!!!!! I love them so much >_< I also really adore the panda phone charm, and the tiny squishy Hello Kitty! Everything was beyond thoughtful and fantastic! A million hearts your way!!
Response: I am so glad you like the goodie, Wysteria! I enjoyed putting the eggs together for you and finding little goodies to include!
Comment: Thaaaaank you for the cute matchbox! At first I thought the caramel candy was a boullion cube ha ha but of course you wouldn't send something like that :) it was delicious!!! And thank you for supporting my sticker addiction with the extra sticker sack!
Response: I just LOL'd at work about the boullion cube. that would be a pretty funny gag to put in a match box.... but you're right, I would never do that in real life... lol
Comment: It's so lovely, Angie!! Doctor Who themed, of course, and you know I'm not going to be able to send this to anyone, right? I'll just have to keep it for me! Love all the washis and especially how to added them to the envelope all overlapping and crooked. It really adds a lot of movement to it. Thank bunches!! :D
Response: I am so glad you liked it! So Comicon was this weekend in Cleveland, but I didn;t get to go :_:
Comment: Thank you so much for all the cute stickers!
Response: I am glad you liked them, Rani. Thank you for the heart. It was pointed out to me by someone else in this swap that I sent late. To be honest, I do not remember what day I sent the swap, but I apologize for the delay and that you had to wait for the swap.
Comment: Thanks. I can't believe it took two weeks to arrive. I've received 2015 Xmas cards within two or three days after the postmark.
Response: I apologize that you had to wait for the swap. To be honest, I do not remember what day I sent the swap- I thought I placed it in the mail on the send by date, but it is possible I placed it by mistake with some mail I had outgoing for Friday, 12/18. I apologize for the delay.
Response: Glad you liked them, Pattie :) Thank you for the heart. It was pointed out to me by someone else in this swap that I sent late. To be honest, I do not remember what day I sent the swap, but I apologize for the delay and that you had to wait for the swap.
Comment: Doctor Who!!! :D I thought about doing a DW quote too but ended up doing mine before partners were assigned, just to make sure I was happy with them. I LOVE IT! Recently, I framed my DW UK stamps and DW some postcards (both from swappers here) and am going to hang them all together in our sci-fi themed room. Methinks I'll need another frame, so your card can join in the fun. :D :D Love the note too. Sorry for the loss of sleep; hopefully they will finish on time. *hugs* for you, and more hearts â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Response: Oh the roofing took 2 weeks. It was Fab. Not. Lol. They are finished now, though, so life goes on!
Comment: So or Ray bout the late rating, I was archiving and came upon this. I must not have saved the rating. I LOVED THE SWAP YOU SENT. I HAVE STARTED A NEW BOOK W THE POCKET SWAPS. YOU ARE # 2. I hope to fill up the book in a year! Thank. For the yummy ice cream page!
Comment: This was such an adorable pocket letter! I love the little candy corn characters. Oddly, the one with the glasses reminds me of an old co-worker. The treats you included even matched the theme! Thank you so much for a great swap. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the ADORABLE PL!! It is by far the cutest one I have received. It turned out perfect. I loved the personal mailing labels. Soooooo cute. I Loved all the personal touches, the little bags of goodies, adorable papers w/sticker backs. They are to cute to use. Thank you so much for a perfect swap , you really made my day. I loved it!!! :):)

Thanks for being a partner ,who takes her time to create something to be proud of,it is really appreciated.
Comment: Thanks for reviewing so many young adult books, I hadn't heard about any of them before. I added some of them to my reading list and I'll pick them up when I feel like reading some young adult. :)
Response: You're welcome! I hardly ever read adult fiction for some reason, so most of my reading lists are YA
Comment: Thank you Angie for the beads for earrings. I will certainly enjoy putting them together and I think I'm going to donate them to the Earrings for you charity that is running with another swap I'm in currently. We get to make a pair for our partner and donate a pair and donating two pair will be even better because some beautiful woman with cancer will receive them. So thank you for the lovely beads, they are cheerful and will be fun to put together.
Response: I am glad you liked them and have such a wonderful cause to use them for :)
Comment: Thank you for the great book themed PL! I love all of the different book covers and the added embellishments you put on them! Can't wait to use the goodies you sent on my next PL = D Thank you!
Comment: ðŸŒžðŸ¸ðŸ’œwoooowwww I love the washi samples u sent me!!! thank you so much for the extras, I can't wait to use these in my projects! they go together perfectly, u must have an eye for that kind of thing. :) I'm trying to keep my daughter out of the samples as we speak lol! thank you!!! ðŸ’œðŸ¸ðŸŒž
Response: You're welcome! I'm a "matchy" person, so I like to try to group my washi's by what I think looks good together- usually themed around a particular color; glad you liked the samples :)
Comment: Angie.........I almost pee'd my pants when I opened this envelope!!!!!! Thank you SO much!! I am stoked! There is not one single washi here that I already have......they are all new!!! YOOO HOO! Thank you :)
Response: WOW! Imagine that! Glad you made out like a bandit with a bunch of new designs!
Comment: I enjoyed your bright, cheery washi flower pot card and am glad you had fun it. Thanks for the fun floral tapes and stickers/labels too. I hope winter pushes away soon so the bright, vibrant flowers can find their way up out of the ground once again.
Response: Yes, hopefully! Its finally getting warm out now, so hopefully soon!
Comment: Welcome to the Reading Log swap! I hope that you enjoyed it. Thanks for your log. Glad you enjoyed Cinder and Scarlett. I love the series and just read Fairest. It wasn't my favorite, because of triggers of mine, but it was still good.
Response: I still need to read Cress and then Fairest. Thanks for the rating and the heart
Comment: I love the journal. It will really force me out of my comfort zone! Thanks!
Response: You're wlecome! Glad it finally made it there; I had given it to my brother to mail from his workplace, since the roads were bad, and he apparently shipped it as an envie the first time, it came back, and then he sent it back out again as a package. Like all good brothers, he doesn;t tell me about this... :(
Comment: WOW! OMGOMGOMG!! You could have stopped at the ghost set and I woulda been over the moon. There are, seriously, more keepers than swappers here. Wow wow wow. Wish I could give you a skillion hearts. I'm the luckiest Pattie EVER!!!
Response: So glad you liked the selection... I have a secret.... I didn't pull those out of my excess 4x5 memos sitting around, I pulled out my box of Kawaii and looked for some different pads that I thought you may like... ;)
Comment: Angie, thank you so much! I opened all the packages today (I'm not a very patient person) and was overwhelmed by the awesome assortments you sent. I love everything but especially the fairy tale sticker sack. Thank you so much! I feel so spoiled.
Response: Glad to know you liked everything! I opened all of mine at the same time too.... lol....
Comment: Thank you for the great swap. Aren't InkJoy pens the best? It's great to have more, as well as some others I've never used. I can't wait to write some great things with them. And the pouch is a fun one. Thank you for it and a few small extras too! :-)
Response: You're very welcome :) I am glad you enjoyed everything!
Comment: Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I will use them with pride (Okay that is a lie...I am going to hoard them with my DW stash!) Thank You so much! Oh and thank you for the memo sheets as well : )
Comment: I LOVE the envelopes you stamped for me!!! The images and colors are just beautiful! Thank you so much! And thank you, too, for the papers and lovely washi samples and super cute notecard you used :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely weird kawaii!! I lived them! Although some were very questionable looking, if you know what I mean! Lol
Response: *cough* you mean the zombie kawaii?! lol.... When I saw that character, I had to buy a few memo pads... lol
Weird kawaii is harder to choose than I thought it would be- everyone has their own definition of weird, after all :)
Comment: I love all the great memo papers- absolutely adore Sentimental Circus! Thank you! And I really like the cute taped card you made and your decorated envie! I'll be peeling those puffy SC stickers off to keep :) Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment: What an amazing book! It is absolutely gorgeous!! Thank you so much!
Response: Donna, I am so glad you like it! It was fun to make. Thank you for being so understanding about the mix up with my brother packing the original away that is still awol.... more than likely its chilling in the garage.
Comment: Hi Angie, thank you for the cute sweets themed re-ment! I don't have it already, and I don't usually buy dessert themes, so it was really neat to get something new. Thanks again for joining this swap!
Comment: I love my bookmark! I've never had one like this before! Think I'll try it out on my latest Torchwood novel. Allons-y!
Response: Yay! I am so glad it made it to you and didn't end up lost somewhere. I had just finished the resend I was making for you- didn't have it in the envie yet, so I will hold on to it as an extra to include with another DWF swap :)
Comment: Thanks for the terrific whimsey jar! My two little gradndaughters (2 and 4) were here when I got it and they were amazed that someone sent me a jar full of "treasures"! :-) We had a good time emptying it out slowly and ohhing and ahhing over everything, can you imagine a whimsey jar in the eyes of a two and four year old!? Magic! :-)
Response: I am so glad you liked the jar! They are fun to put together :)
Comment: The tape you used to keep the envelopes to the cardboard was like sawing wood!!! lol Strongest tape **evearrrrrrr*! SO! For the Sentimental Circus alone you deserve a skillion hearts! I have never seen this series before and I have to say, I'm impressed! WAY impressed. From tomorrow was great, fruit recipes is a personal fav...you really struck gold kiddo!! I wish I could shout from the rooftops what an awesome swap this is!!! Thank you heaps!!!
Response: Yay! I am super excited you liked all the sets! I'm glad I waited for my order from Kawaii ya to come and didn't just look though all my older sets here at the house :)
Comment: fantastic magnets, angie. how did you do it? we couldn't figure it outâ€¦very nice. thanks.
Response: Glad you liked them; did I send you the bottle cap ones or the square ones? If they are the bottle cap ones, I bought the bottle caps to alter at a craft store, and then ran the circles through my sticker maker, stuck them to the bottle cap, put the rubbery circle overtop to seal, and then put the magnet on the back;
Comment: Oh how fun! Thank you for all the wonderful DW goodies. Love the Jammie Dodgers..., and the great address/swap cards. All the embellishments and the ribbons. And the great note cards! Oh and the awesome magnets!!! â™¥ Love the wrapping also. Thanks for everything. :) Allonsey!
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you liked everything!
Comment: Love the beautiful card.....Great Job!! your "folds" are so wonderfully tiny.... my fingers never could make things small like that!! Thanks for the extra Tea bag folded paper.... will be fun to use!
Response: It was challenging... I think my printer actually printed the squares smaller then they should have been... lol... but I managed! Glad you liked the card!
Comment: I was so delighted to see the fun, bright fabrics you used on the fabric bags!!!! They Immediately made me think of spring & happy, cheery bags full of stuff! Thanks so much for such a fun swap! â™¥
Response: I am glad you liked them! I like bright, cheery colors, so most of my fabric is fun :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all my goodies! Each one is perfect and so obvious you read my profile and picked things I adore. I love the little fairies and think I will make some jewelry with kids this weekend. Love it all, ate the chocolate and using the cards now...doesn't get any better. Hugs, Mona
Comment: Second time this week I got mail from you. It's like hitting the lottery TWICE! =D And yeah, even after digging through the stash, I still have inches of stash to go. =D Thanks for the goodies, and for joining my swap!!
Response: You are welcome! I hope you like what I sent! Tried to throw some variety in there :)
Comment: Your Washi PC was great...I love the Pink/Black color scheme. Also your story about your brother made me giggle. Thanks bunches!
Response: Thanks! I've lost count of how many roles of washi tape I've accumulated, but I have a VERY bad tendency to use the black/grey/sepia hued roles the most, so I thought to spice it up a little with my pinks that don't get used very often :)
Comment: Always a good mail day when you get Captain Jack Harkness in the mail ;) Thank you for the great APC's and for being fully honest about the brain fart on the due date. Happens to us all once in a while :)
Response: Oh that we could all get Jack Harkness in the mail on a daily basis... but thank YOU so much for not only a 5 but a heart as well! You rock! I am glad you liked the APC's :)
Comment: Yes, you made the book correctly - very nice job! I like the contrast of the "old" paper and the modern glitter ribbon. Thx for all of the stickers (cute idea!) and labels as well as the washi tape and flowers, but most of all for the great handmade initials stamp - I love it! (";)
Response: I am so glad you like it! Carving my own stamps is my new favorite thing to do :)
Comment: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ A bazillion hearts for you! Totally above and beyond on this swap! You sent double the required stamps and flat surprises! And they are all so great. I lovelovelove the bookmark with Jack and the Weeping Angel (two of my faves), and the stamps are amazing. So many Elevens :D Thanks so much! *big hug*
Response: I am so glad you like everything! I had a lot of fun making the DW artistamps, and I think there were actually 2 designs I didn't like as well that you didn't get too...lol. When I was contemplating on what to make for the flat surprise, I came across the bookmark forms when I was cleaning the craftroom, and knew I had those tile sticker designs, so it inspired me <3
Comment: Wow I love these letter sets you sent to me :D awesome!!! And it's funny I was looking through the sets before I read your note about the HK set and I was wondering did she send me a mismatched envelope? I smiled after I read the note and saw you mentioned that they do in fact go together hehe! The color scheme is all wrong lol!! But I love it! Thank you so much! Do you by chance have the other designs of the usagi one and the twinkle rabirin? I would love to swap for them if you do? :)
Response: I am glad you liked the sets; let me look through my lettersets and see if I have any of the other designs for those two sets in particular- I'm not sure.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard! Your photograph is great. I'm not that familiar with Japanese themed characters, but it looks really neat.
Response: Thank you so much :) ! I don't really know what Doremon is, but since I am into Anime and manga, I know the character on site....even though I know nothing about the character... lol. The Japanese are big on their character goods- when we were in Tokyo, I saw a Hello Kitty themed bus too, but didn't get a picture!
Comment: So sorry it took me FOREVER to rate you, but wow! Thank you so much for all the adorable items! I think I'll try the clings on the binders I have here at home for recipes, and I ADORE the address lables!!!!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything! I thought you may have been on Vacation or something, so I was just keeping an eye out for the rating until now :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the sticker-slapped envelope you sent me! You did a super job of covering it with all sorts of Kawaii for me! And then - as if that wasn't enough - I opened the envelope and found a sack of Awa Awa Chan sticker flakes - yay! Thank you so much - and thank you for all the little memo pad sheets too! This was a FABULOUS little package to open! You made my day!
Comment: Thank you for the great ATC! I too am new to zentangling, I had never seen these patterns before. Very cool!
Response: Glad you liked it! The houndstooth looking pattern, Bitten, I think its called, is my favorite, and it was new to me too! I'd seen the other designs before thought this was the first time I tried drawing them!
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful multipurpose TARDIS device and key! My daughter and I were delighted and she has already squirreled it away mumbling about TARDIS keys and windy antenna key holders, so you know it was a hit in our house! We loved the Dr. Who playing card and swap card as well!
Response: I am so happy you like it! Hope your daughter enjoys her travels.... :p
Comment: Kinda creepy - I like! Thx for the extra washi and other bits 'n' bobs too! (";)
Response: Glad you like it! Yes, it is a bit creept; I made it when together with some ladies from work at a Scrap fest at the local Scrapbooking store...they were like...what ARE you doing with those creepy pictures! lol...
Comment: What a wonderful swap! Fun design & quotes. I love the 3-D pearls on the Dalek! And the dangling bits at the bottom are just awesome :)
Response: I am glad you like it! When I decided to put the Dalek's on the villian side, that stupid song- Sexy and I Know it- popped in my head, and I was like......yes, I must use that chorus with the Daleks! The song finally has a use....ha ha!
Comment: Angie, what a lovely card! So much subtle detail...I love the bookmark in the pocket & the different shades of pearls...thank you also for the little black and white flowers, they are perfect for a project I am working on...
Response: I am glad you liked the card and can use the extras too! Thank you!
Comment: Wow! What a beautiful treatment of this swap. Thank you so much for a lovely card. I certainly appreciate the time you obviously put into it. Thank you. p.s...I love the cute owl card it came in as well. :)
Response: I am glad you liked the card! It was fun making it!
Comment: Wow - I am SUPER impressed at your ATC! I love everything about it - the layers, the techniques, the 3-D elements. Also I can't stop petting the fuzzy ric-rac (which sounds like a Whoverse species). Great idea to focus on Clara. I really like her character and I hope she gets more fleshed out next season.
Thanks for the extras as well! I love the playing cards!
Response: I am so glad you like the ATC! I was kicking myself as I cut out those puzzle pieces because it was TEDIOUS....lol... I am glad you liked the extras too :)
Comment: I adore the card you made me!!! SOOO cute! Love the technique with the foam squares too! I need to get me some o' those! :) Thanks for the stickers too. <3
Response: Foam squares are excellent for giving a simple design some pizzazz by making it 35... :) I saw that picture as I was looking through my collection of kawaii clipart on my computer and was like.....this would be excellent!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard! I love how you used a bit of green in it. I also love to hear how you made it!
Response: I am so happy you like it, Maria! I had fun making it- it had been a long time since I used custom brushes in photoshop and discovered my new version isn't the one I had all my brushes with...lol... so I was searching for brushes at like 2am to finish the design!
Comment: It's lovely! I'm especially impressed that this is your first attempt at rolos and I like the text theme for the Typography. :) Thanks!
Response: Thank you! It helped, I think, that I had received the rolo you made for the swap before I began working on mine- it gave me an idea of what altered rolos done well....consists of....lol. I look forward to doing more rolos in the future :)
Comment: I LOVE my crossword and the extras OMG (oh my Gallifrey) your card is inspiring. I gotta make me something like that!! Off to do my puzzle!! You had me stumped!! And the playing cards?? Thank you very much!!
Response: awesome! I am glad you liked everything! I was worried I wouldn't be able to come up with something challenging! Glad to know it worked wonderfully! Playing cards I got 2 sets of- one for me, and one to use as extras in DWF swaps!
Comment: I love the way you did the deco tape on the postcard! (Just a bit of advice, next time, maybe protect the address area with tape too, as my street address was torn off from the postal machines) Luckily, enough remained that it made it here! The postcard was really cute and the technique itself deserves a <3!
Response: Ack! I will keep that in mind! Glad you like it!
Comment: Hi, thank you so much for all the cute memo sheets, I love them all :) I especially like the one where it says cream bear or something like that. It's a bear with ice cream, I believe. I want the pad :)
Response: I think that is one of my new ones, actually! I have too many memo pads, however, so who knows....lol
Comment: Thank you for all of the chocolate!!! My boyfriend and I eat a couple of the individual pieces today and they were delicious. The espresso one looks good too! I have had the skybar's before and I like them.The note paper you wrote on is really cute too!!!
Response: I am so glad you like the chocolates! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Very pretty folded geisha card - thank you! The Asian sentiments are also pretty. Thx for a lovely swap! Hugs, Terry (";) P.S. Ottawa is about 250 miles northeast of Toronto - if you ever plan to come this way, do let me know. P.P.S. Even before I read your note I had carefully removed the great washi tape to reuse. lol Did she say how she made it?
Response: I believe that one was tissue paper, but I'm not sure. I will look when I get home! I am glad you liked the card, and I will def let you know if I'm ever in the area! My brother is a photographer....so I can use him as my traveling excuse...ha ha. We're planning a road trip out west this fall- he wants to go to the Antelope Canyon, which are in.... Utah, I think? I would like to see Washington State or California!
Comment: Angie, I love EVERYTHING! It's so cute!! Thank you so much you made my day! BIG HEARTS <3!!
Response: I am glad you liked everything! I saw that card while shopping for another card swap, and was like....gotta buy this and I'll make my own swap to use it if I have to! Fortunately KSU came to the rescue!
Comment: Wow!! What an awesome package you put together! I love everything - especially the journal which is just beautifully done! The pens, recipe cards, post-its and magnet are awesome too! I can see how it would be hard to find Alice stuff right now because Oz has taken over. I do so much appreciate your effort in finding such wonderful things. Thank you SO much! :) (And I am so sorry about the late rating...went through some medical stuff this month.)
Response: That is fine! I am glad you liked everything! Yes, I saw OZ everywhere...and I was like....should have offered OZ as a theme....lol...
Comment: Thanks for the cute card, plaque, and postcards!!! I love everything :) I hope you have a Happy Easter!
Response: Thank you, Kelly, you too! I am glad you liked everything! I tried making a Easter themed paper medallion for you before I finally settled on the little plaque.....and it DID not go as well as I would have liked....it still won't lay flat....lol.
Comment: Just got your stickers today! They are awesome! And yes, a lot of them too! Thank you!! Are they rubber stamps that you colored or did you draw them? I really appreciate how you laminated them too!! I wish I can give you more hearts! :-)
Response: I am glad you liked them! I didn't draw any by hand- those are all rubber stamps that I have! I had a lot of fun making the stickers and just kept on making them... ha ha!
Comment: Hey, sorry for the late rating, I'm getting caught up with all my ratings now! Thank you for the great APC's! I love how you used all the different washi tapes (I think they were washi tapes, right? I'm still confused about washi tape)
Response: Yeah, those are washi tape! The main difference I see between Washi tape and other deco tape is that washi has more of a papery feel instead of plastic! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Oh WOW! Where do I start? (The beginning I guess would be best) - The envelope this was packaged in was absolutely adorable! I love love love all the retro valentines! Now on to the goodies...I am in love with the address labels they are so much fun (and so plentiful!). The ribbons and the sparkly foam hearts are awesome! I love the heart shaped brads and embellishments. Great sticker choices also...I love sparkle anything! The vintage papers are so classy and awesome, that I will probably end up hoarding them. O_o
This was a wonderful swap and you are a wonderful swap partner. Thank you so very much for all the beautiful and fun goodies! â™¥
Response: I am so happy you like it! I had so much fun decorating the envelope and putting together all the goodies. When I saw you liked Address labels and octopus I had to create some for you to send along as an extra! Those papers were too precious, and I loved them also!
Comment: I received your SMASH journal, and it is so wonderful!! I don't know how you did it, but the whole package smells great. I love how you had it wrapped up in tissue paper! It was so thoughtful of you to use Japanese postcards, and the extras are wonderful. Thank you so much for such an extra special package :)
Response: I have no idea how it ended up smelling great! The postcards are vintage pc's and vintage pc's have their own..."scent" so I was worried it would be too over powering! I am glad you liked everything! I really liked how it turned out too!
Comment: Oh my gosh! I hope you are feeling better by now!! Thank you for the sticker sack. I do NOT have those yet! :)
Response: Thanks, Rachel, I am feeling a bit better now! I am glad you didn't have the stickers yet, and the comment is too cute! I need to find comments to leave on the profiles of my own partners too!
Comment: My valentine arrived today, and it really made me smile. :-) I love how you made the hearts dimensional (did you use foam for the heart shapes?)The matching envie was nice too. And thanks for the stickers.
Response: I am so happy you like it and the extra stickers! I did use foam hearts and covered them in washi tape; the design I saw that I based it off of used chipboard hearts, but I couldn't find any chipboard heart cutouts, so I used foam instead. I need to find a different type of pen to use though, the washi tape made the black look flatter in color than I would have liked, but it is tape... I have to make some other cards for a couple other swaps, so I may be similar designs since I still have foam hearts left!
Comment: I LOVE them!!! I'm so glad you sent the first batch because they are SO adorable!!! Thanks so much!
Response: Glad you liked them! FIgured...might as well send em cause they gots your name on them....lol. Making swapcards and labels is one of my favorite things to do, haven't done it in a while, though!
Comment: Thank you Angie!!! I have the most adorable owl proudly hanging on my tree!! Card is hanging up alongside my others, and I even clipped the clothespin on a tree branch as well! Loved it! Thanks so much! :)
Response: I am glad you liked it! I saw those little owl's when I was shopping for another swap, and I was like, this would be perfect for the Sugar and Spice ornament swap I am going to host, ha ha! And those little clips are soo cute! I love the packaging line they carry at World Market- such cute stuff^^
Comment: I love my stocking!!! And all the sweet, cute, perfect Christmas things you have tucked inside it. Everything is perfect. I felt like a kid again taking one thing at a time out and opening it. Thank you very much! You did an awesome job!
Response: I am glad you like it! It was lots of fun to make and put together! Happy Holidays!
Comment: Oh My Goodness! I am so happy with the TWO Origami wreaths I received! I love them both, the gold holographic paper with the flowers and the cardinal (one of my very favorite birds) is eye-catchingly beautiful and the green with red bling berries also with a cardinal is lovely. They will both hang on my year-a-round tree of hand-crafted beautiful items that I have a hard time packing away to only bring out once a year! Thanks you so much for a wonder swap!
Response: I am glad you like them! I had so much fun learning how to make them that I showed my mom and brother over thanksgiving weekend how to make them too and we made some to use for ornaments and card embellishments!
Comment: Angie!! Thanks so much! WHOA, What a cute card!! Sticker sheets were so FUN as were the memos :). Looking forward to all good things to come with this new group! Can't wait! Hope to hear from you soon!
Response: Glad you liked the card and the goodies! I love making cards ^^
Comment: The snowy picture on the card looks too much like my front yard[sans Santa!]. Loved the story about your Dad. This will be our first Christmas without our Dad- treasure all of those lovable quirks!
Response: Teri, I'm sorry to hear that! I know it can be hard to spend the holidays without a loved one, so I am sending thoughts of blessings, peace, and joy to you and your family this holiday season.
Comment: I love the goodies! Where did you get those beautiful snowflakes? Thanks for everything!
Response: I am glad you liked the kit! I got this snowflakes at a craft store last winter- Pat Catans, to use as cake toppers for a Japanese New Year's cake, and when I saw them, I thought they would be perfect for a pretty winter card!
Comment: Wow! You had some great stuff! I enjoyed each piece! Rocky and Bullwinkle brought some great memories from my childhood. It's amazing what people tend to view as trash not us...their treasures. Enjoy the well deserved heart!
Comment: Thanks so much for all the awesome my melody items! The little pen is the cutest! :) my daughter thought melody was playing peek-a-boo I didn't have the heart to tell her she was crying lol! Thanks again :)
Response: Lol! I am glad you liked it. That pen I bought at this little toy shop while I was on vacation in Sarasota, FL; it was one of 4 things in the entire store that was My Melody.....but it was the only shop that sold Sanrio at all....lol...it was crazy.
Comment: Angie - thanks for the wonderful package of Asian junk! I love the wonderful dragons and the tiny charms, and the images and stampings will be a fun addition to my postcard making supplies. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving (Oct 7)! Jen
Comment: LOVE the slams! AND the sticker sack is fabulous. THis stupid netbook will NOT let me click the heart box. As soon as my PC is on I'm going to add it, I just haven't had the energy to get to the PC today. BUT IT"S COMING I PROMISE!!!
Response: No prob! This was the one swap I didn't get out in the mail before I left for vacation so I had to find a post office to mail it from...glad it got to ya!
Comment: How adorable your ornament is! (And where on earth did you find that cute matryoshka bag?) Thx for a great swap! Hugs, T (";')****Added later: I love World Market. We don't have them up here but I will check them online. Thx!
Response: They have a gift wrap line with matryosha's at World Market; I don't know if they have them around where you live or not; but they have gift bags, the little treat bags, wrapping paper, tags. If you're ever interested in what they have, I can take pictures, get prices and let you know!
Comment: Holy Cats! You went way above and beyond the requirements of this swap. Thank you so much for all of the goodies. I hadn't ever had any of the official Smash Book stuff before... these tabs and cards and flags are really cool! Thanks =)
Response: Yeah the craft stores were having a sale the other week on the smash book stuff, so I though...what better? :)
Comment: Holy Cats! You went way above and beyond the requirements of this swap. Thank you so much for all of the goodies. I especially liked the little bat postage stamp and tape you used on the package (just like a kid to play with the packaging =) ... every thing is wonderful! Thank you!!!!
Response: Glad you enjoyed it all! I love the deco tape too, lol!
Comment: Thank you so much!!! I adore all the quotes and the tea you sent! Lots of chai and spicy, yay! :) Thank you for reading my profile, so there, i'm giving you a heart! :)
Response: You're welcome! I collect tea so I have lots, but I sent my favorites...and most happen to be Chai, since Chai is what got me into tea drinking in the first place, though I'm picky because I was introduced to real, authentic Chai in Nepal and India....lol
Comment: Thanks for the two packages! They both arrived today. The two washi tapes are going to be great additions to my smashbooks and mail art. The ephemera is just so cool. Thanks for the fun shopping trip, partner!
Response: Your welcome! I picked up my first 2 rolls of washi tape today actually!
Comment: Thank you so much Angie!!! I loved your box, I love Rilakkuma sweets! ^.^ It didn't smell tea-y, thanks for being so cautious! Your box was super adorable, I was smiling as I opened it up! Thank you so much for all the labels, they are so cute!!! Thanks again, this will be on my shelf now so I can open it every once in a while to admire :)
Comment: LMAO Love love love to see my own packaging show back up again. ;D And that was actually a very clever way to send! I'll be sure to snag the idea! Thank you!
Response: LMAO- I totally wasn't paying attention and realized that I was using your OWN packaging to send back to you.... too funny! I save all/ most of my packaging to reuse- my roommate laughs at me but the money I save I can spend on goodies for my partners and not on packaging! I do have a plastic tote upstaris with used bubble mailers though in my craft room, ha ha
Comment: Oh my! I don't know what to taste first! THANK YOU! I know and love Reese's and Skittles and both are impossible to get here, so you already made my day with that. I can not wait to try the other things. Thanks for such a great package! You made my day!
Comment: Yay!!!! Thank you so much for the address cards, stickers, and the postcard. :D The lettersets are all new to me as well.
Response: Awesome! I haven't gotten any "new" Rilakkuma lettersets or memos in a while, so I was a little worried you might have already had the lettersets! Someone sent me some of the new chocolate Rilakkuma stuff from Japan- but I cannot find her package anywhere- which is what I had wanted to include in my swap to ya....
Response: Glad you recieved! I read your message right before I came over here to check my profile...lol. My post office here...they are special people....lol...my mail carrier leaves the mail I'm trying to mail from the house here sometimes....so I have my doubts about the post office too....lol
Comment: Thanks for getting it hand canceled - I just love that. :D Hope you're well!
Response: No prob. The people at my post office have an attitude problem, though, lol. You should have seen the look the lady at the window gave me when I went in on the 29th and told her I wanted it hand cancelled....lol
Comment: Love your dollies Angie! Feel free to add me on flickr so our blythes can stay in touch;) http://www.flickr.com/photos/folksylove/
Response: Will do! I'm interested in hearing about the Blythe convention too- the one in NY...I have vacation time to think about for the first half of 2013...and that sounds like something I may like!
Comment: Thanks for the suggestions :3 Through all of these emails I've been pointed in the direction of manga that I would never have ever, picked up in a store. But being told the storylines does make them more intriguing- I'll look into the titles! I love the style of the illustration on the cover of 'Five' :)
Comment: Wow, now I know how I want my swaps to look! Beautiful surprise in my mailbox today, a BIG heart for such care and attention. You surely put a lot of "heart" into it!! :) Those little hearts put a big ol' smile on my face just like that!! Thanks so much for a super nice swap.
Comment: Angie - thanks for such a wonderful swap package! The deco tape is a favorite design in letter sets and I'm thrilled to have it this way - SC is another fave - and the onigirikun are great - *so* cute! Thanks for a special package and your thoughtfulness in choosing the contents.
Response: Glad you liked everything! I saw that you liked sc AFTER I ordered...so I had good intitution!! lol
Comment: My entire family is in love with the cute envelope! I really love the way you decorated it! My kids want to say thank you so so so much for their items also! You really brightened our day! Thank you very much! Happy swapping!
Response: You're welcome! Glad everyone enjoyed their goodies as well as the envelope! I have a ...semi massive collection of decotapes and wanted to use them to decorate my envie!
Comment: Oh my goodness! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY STASH! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH! I wish I could give you 5 hearts! I can't believe you sent me a Moleskine! I just adore my Asian Kite! Too cute! Thank you so much! I love it all! One of the best packages I have ever received! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful cranes ! And it is sweet of you to put them in a organza bag. Ive been always looking for organza bags whenever I go shopping but I have never found any in my area : ( That pink organza bag was very pretty. Thank you so much . And Im so surprised that you have that red Chinese envelope which they put some money to give someone . Can you get them in your country ? Anyway , thank you so much , you made my day !!!
Response: There is an Asian import store in a city near where I live that I go to and they have the envelopes there; In America we of course don't use them to put money in as is traditional, but I like to pick up pack of them to use for swap envelopes or envelopes to put memo sheets or stickers in; I go to the store frequently because there is a big Asian grocery store up there, and I like Asian food better than American food....lol
Comment: Thanks for your picture of Tokyo and your note about it. You didn't write either your name or the name of the swap so it wasn't easy to figure out how to rate you. Please remember to write at least some facts like that on future swaps or someone might think you flaked.
Response: Sorry, I honestly forgot to write it on the swap...which is actually the first time I've done that since I've been a memeber. Thanks for taking the time to figure out what swap it was.
Comment: WoW Angie i absolutely loved the gingerbread items you sent me, thank you sooooooooo much nobody has sent me these items before even though they are on my profile - i havent opened the rest of the items but the three parcels i opened deserved a million starts - thank you so much looking forward to opening the rest ! x
Response: Glad you liked them! I knew that the craft store I go to here in my city had lost of cute things like that out right now because of the holidays, so when I saw that you liked Gingerbread things, I figured they would be perfect!
Comment: QUITE GOOD TY HUN. i honestly thought I had read this one but now that I have is rather better then i thought. Great job and yes when i checked i had forgotton to rate one of other partners. I'm full of silly mistakes latly.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful jewelry. I like the technique you used to make the necklace beads. The rings were cute w/the cupcake, etc. I never thought of making rings that way. You inspired me to make cool rings now :)
Response: Glad to know You liked everything and that I was an inspiration!
Comment: I got a chance to sit outside in the beautiful fall weather and read your work. It is a great snapshot of your characters, who seem to have lots of technology and great strength. It really left me wanting to know more about where and who they are. (Which is a good thing.) Thanks for sharing.
Comment: Thank you very much. Thank you for the red tea bag, it is the tea which I never had drink before, I am going to be made a cup right now and for The honeyStix which I did not know, that does not exist here. Everything pleases me... (..^_~..)
Comment: Angie, I'm not going to rate you down although there has been 48 and not required minimum of 50 postage stamps in a bag. (And I counted twice to be sure and even checked have some glued on another stamp.) Some people may not be as forgiving so maybe you could check twice before sending your next stamp swap. Take care, Mihaela
Response: Sorry to hear that and thanks for not rating down...I actually counted those stamps several times myself before I packaged them up- maybe I dropped a couple as I was transfereing them from the desk to the envelope. Thanks for being understanding.
Comment: Angie! Thank you so much for the fun earrings! Really cute, and clearly lots of time and effort. I LOVE the name and your story is particularly meaningful. I like AA and love that song. Thanks for blessing me! xo
Comment: is Nyanko your favorite character? I love all the Wanroom stuff! Thanks ever so much for a great swap package. I've never seen many of the memo sheets before - you must be a longtime collector.
Response: San-x is my favorite of all the brands... and I have been a collector for a while...Lol. I love Nyanko, but Rilakkuma is my favorite!
Comment: 100 hearts to you for a fantastic swap package! It arrived today which is my dad's birthday. I took it over for his birthday dinner and we all had a blast eating such wonderful goodies! Thank you for your generosity and going above and beyond with this swap. Thank you!
Response: You're welcome! Having the US' largest candy shop to go to only an hour from my house helped....lol.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely atcs!! All the time and effort you put into this swap shows. The anime themed Alice in Wonderland atcs were all very cute and look great in my collection. Happy swapping!!
Comment: Thank you very, very, very, very much for the resend. When I received the package, I stared at it in horror first. I didn't order anything from that website but my name was on it.
You made my day- thank you so much. I love everything.
I am too excited over the folder, I've been needing some a new cute folder for my classes next semester. >w<
Everything is lovely- thank you so very much. ; o ;
Response: Glad you liked it! I had a simular reaction to a swap I recieved in a couple of amazon.com boxes....I was like what is this because i diidn"t order anything!
Comment: Thank you SO much for the adorable goodies you sent me! I love everything - all so so cute! The mini memos are really nice, and I love the stickersheet! Wish I could give you 10 hearts! <3 Thank youu!!!
Response: You're welcome. Glad you liked everything!
This swap was so cool !! I liked everything !
Specially the bird's and fish charms, they were a good selection. It was a good detail to include the cat's paper note and the animal decorated bag !! also the beads are amazing, some of them are really special. And finally I collect postage stamps, so it was a good detail to find 2 German stamps below the USA stamp, haha !! Thank you so much ! CheersÂ¡ .Cometa
Comment: Thank-you for the wonderful recommendations! I loved your commentary on each one! I'm actually in the middle of reading Class President is a Maid! now, and I will probably read L-DK next based on your recommendation just because I need a new series with a good Mr. Smoken Sexy/ XD
Response: ha ha...we all need a Mr. Smoken Sexy in our lives from time to time ;P
Comment: Thanks so much for the super e-mail! It's so nice to find a fellow fan of Ouran High School Host Club ^_^ We also share a love of kawaii and I see that you've visited Japan. If you have time I would love to hear about your favourite things to do/see/eat in Tokyo as I hope to visit next year â™¥
Response: Yeah, no problem! I can def share with you all the amazing places to go or see, etc!
Comment: I received your lovely package today! Thank you! The kitchen stuff is great and very useful as I spend lots of time in my kitchen. Whoppers smell so good! I am gonna save them for dessert :)
And my daughter was extremely happy when she saw the goodies! It was very thoughful of you to send something for her as well! So she wants to thank you too!
Comment: Sorry to say your card did not hold up too well in the mail, the contact paper came loose and one of the bunnies was torn up some, maybe next time with the layers you might have to mail it in an envelope, it probably got caught in one of the post offices machines. Thanks for the effort.
Response: Awe that's sad to hear! I know that most people like to receive their postcards naked, but next year I may just do that and mail it in an envie just incase. I hope the other ones show up ok!
Comment: Thanks for the knitted Bunny! I loooves it!
Response: glad to know it got there...even if canada post decided to keep it for the holidays....;) And speaking of cute ornaments....i actually bought several cute ones for next year at year end sells this year, ha ha.
Comment: Thanks for the cute card! And yes, I'm Melissa. I go by my middle name now because I prefer it over Melissa. I took a 2 year break from swapping... it's good to see that you're still active! =) Happy holidays Angie!
Response: Yeah I'm active here on Swap-bot lol, I'm done with the Yahoo groups! Awesome to see ya again, and I look foward to swapping with you again!
Comment: Thanks, Angie, you've put a lot of work into this. This kind of story simply doesn't hold my attention -- no fault of yours but of the genre. You seem to have the tricks and tone of voice down pat.
Comment: thank you for such a lovely package, esp the lipstick holder ! :) i'll be sure to put everything to good use. btw, there was also an oriental shirt-like "holder". may i know what is that used for ? ^^
Response: I believe it is a little change purse or a money pouch? Lol...or maybe it could hide a mini bottle of tequilla for an especially trying day? In all seriousness, i think it's a little change purse.
Comment: I was going through my swaps to archive, and saw I never rated you for this swap! I am sooo sorry! It was amazing! I love the Hello Kitty plushie, and everything else! Thanks so much, and I'm sorry this rating is so late!
Comment: thank you so much for my pin! The clasp got a little squashed in transit, but I can fix it with my trusty pliers! LOL.
Seriously, I loved the little blue girls head with the ponytail - I'm wearing my hair like that today, actually!
Response: Good to know you are able to fix it....it would be horrible if you couldn't! Glad to know that you liked the cab I used for the pin as well!
Comment: Thank you! I love the little bento toothpicks!
Response: They were a real surprise find when I was at the Asian market last time! Happened to see them as I was checking out and was like....oh I have to get those for a future swap! Lol, glad you like them
Comment: SO SORRY!! I thought i rated..XP .... Anyways I love love love everything you sent!!! Thank you so much and again I am sorry for the late rating because i fell in love with your package!!! <3 <3
Comment: Angie, thanks so much for the amazing swap package!!! I literally LOVED everything! :). The HK stationery was my favorite item. You are such an amazing swapper. Many thanks AND many hearts (that is if I could give more than one!)
Response: I am glad you liked everything! It makes me happy to know that my partners love my swaps^^
Comment: The second card arrived! Beautifully designed, and just the right reminder after a stressful 'vacation'.... and I will treasure the little 'extras' that I can't get here... Thank you for sending - it was worth the wait. Hugs, J
Response: I am so glad it finally made it to you! I was beginning to get concerned that it had gotten lost in the mail! Hugs!
Comment: Wow!! What an awesome, fun package! I love everything!!! Thank you so much! You really brightened my day - and my daughter's (she's already telling me that half of it is hers LOL!). Thanks again! :)
Comment: Rec'd 2010/02/07. Omg. Where did you get the valentine card?? My favorite Hellow Kitty design!!! Super awesome!!! And thanks so much for all the memos and stickers :D have a great Valentine's Day!!!
Response: Lol....I think I bought them at Rite Aid last year maybe after Valentine's day....they are too cute though, and it was great to finally have a chance to use some of them.
Comment: Was short 34c and I waiting in line at the post office for an hour to pay it, lol! Thanks though!
Response: Uggh! I can't believe they sent it postage due! The people at the post office know me, and they usually never send my mail postage due....this exasperates me! I'll make it up to ya the next time I mail you something.- edit- One nice thing about the new place I'm moving to is that the post office is open later I believe and its like...2 min away, which is awesome for me!
Comment: What an awesome package! The lollipop and donut immediately went on my tree, but my favs were the earrings - did you make them yourself? Oh, and the address labels also totally made my day.
Response: Yeah, the earrings are an original Starrycat design, lol. I thought, oh, what would be better for strawberry then my strawberry patch earrings design! I plan to make a pair for another swap I have coming up too...they are so easy to make. Glad you liked everything^^
Comment: Oh my gosh! I love your ornaments Angie! Did you make them? The festive ice cream and gingerbread house are amazing and oh so cute! Thank you!!!!! ♥
Response: Lol I'm glad you like them! No, I didn't make them, I found them at the oddest little shop over here. I was going to make felt stuffie ornaments until I couldn't find my felt.....lol. I thought these were too cute though, and saved me from tearing my craft closet apart trying to find my felt....lol^^
Comment: Hi Angie! Thank you for the rad mp3 DVD! There is so much music on it that I love. Love the Cam/Lacrae stuff, never heard it before. Thanks also for the extra CD of your favorite hip hop songs. :)
Response: Lol I forgot to put a note in with the swap about that cd didn't I...they aren't actually my favorite hip-hop songs, someone sent it to me with this swap in particular, and I decided to pass it on as I'm particular about the hip hop I listen to. I thought you might like it however;)
Comment: Oh Wow! I cheated and opened them already...I couldn't resist. I opened the box when I got home from Thanksgiving vacation and all those presents were calling my name!! lol. I love it all, thank you so much for a fabulous box!!
Response: Lol...glad to know I'm not the only cheater around here...I did the same when I got my swap! I'm glad to hear that you liked everything! Hopefully I remember what I sent you and don't end up buying you anything as a duplicate for the ABC scavenger hunt....lol
Comment: LOVED LOVED LOVED it thank you so much, u get 10 HEARTS ^_^
Response: I know, isn't he too cute? Rilakkuma is like my favorite kawaii character (san-x is my favorite brand...lol). I got a big plushie of him when I was in Japan for like 650y....it was totally one that would normally cost like 50 bucks or so it's that big! Yay for bargain anime shops in Japan....lol
Comment: Thank you for the CD! I listened to half of it this morning on my way to work and am enjoying it. Almost all of it is new to me (except Asian Kung-Fu Generation!) Unfortunately the first track must have errored in burning because it just skips a lot and makes my cd player go nuts. it's not scratched or anything... I just had to skip the first song. So far the rest of it plays fine! Thanks for the cd!!! :)
Response: that is so weird! Yeah, it must be one of those freak burning errors, I've burned the song to other cds before and it plays fine. Let me know if there are any other problems, cause I can re-burn the cd or else send you the tracks.
Comment: I got your tote today and it is really cute! I love the tokidoki design and especially all the shiny flowers! I can tell that you put a lot of work into the bag, thanks so much I really like it!
Comment: Aw, I loved this ! Green and black are one of my fab combos ever â™¥
Response: Thank you^^ I liked the skirt, so I decided to use that color skeme. I actually perfer black and pink, black and purple, black and orange, and black and blue over this combo, but I thought it did turn out really well^^
Comment: Hi Angie, the whimsy jar was definitely worth the wait! I LOVED everything! The robot is the cutest ever! The Edward watch is super cool. The Alice stuff is darling. I love the address labels. Thanks so much for making it extra special. I'd have to say it was the coolest swap I've received thus far.
Response: Yay I am so glad you liked it! That robo was a steal at Borders, lol. I had spent like the swap amount on the watch already, but I needed other things for the jar and it was on the clearance rack at Borders for a buck. I was shocked and had to get it for you.
