Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful necklace (and for doing the hard work of hosting)! I don't wear a lot of jewellery recently - mainly due to morning laziness - but I like this so much that I'm going to have to change my ways.

Comment: I loved the items that you sent. I'm a big fan of PaperChase - we don't have their stores in the US. All the items will be put to great use. I also liked the write up on Rhiannon and the pictures that you used for it. Thanks for a great swap!
Comment: Hi Zoe. Thank you for the wonderful pc of Chatsworth in Derbyshire - I love learning about other places. I enjoyed your quote and it certainly does sum up everything happening in the world, at the moment. I love the sparkly blue ink that you used too. I wish you many happy swaps.â™¥

Comment: thank you for my birthday gifts. it was absolutely lovely to do a swap and receive not usual swap things- (i liked the ephemera & washi you sent me too, not saying i didn't!) i felt super spoilt and special! i liked everything but my favourite things were the scarf, the bath bomb/soap bar and heart flannel and the collection palette (i have been wanting this for a while, what a coincidence!!!) thank you again. it was a joy to do this swap & if you'd like to swap again please let me know! x

Comment: Hi Zoe I received my package for this swap and needless to say I was thrilled iwith it. I have never seen that particular pen, I was looking for a pig bookmark but couldn't find one, the necklace is darling. Thanks for making it all about my profile. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: You stuffed so many cool things in here! My partner and I agree that the Toffee KitKat is one of the best candies we've ever had!!! Smarties are kind of like M&Ms but the natural flavors make the candy colors taste different--very cool! We also like the ChocoBons, and the Dolly Mixture, though that one is a little sweet. All the fruity bits look great too! We haven't tried everything yet though, I'll update you after we have. Thanks so much!!!! A million hearts for you! â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥

Thank you for all these wonderful goodies! Reece's pieces are my favourite and that salted caramel chocolate looks amazing (I'm saving myself from eating it until my exams are over, so I can treat myself!) I couldn't resist some of the milkshake straws though, they're very fun, thank you!
Comment: Thank you Zoe, everything that you sent was perfect! I love the little plushie you made, she's adorable! And all the hedgehog goodies :) Thank you so much for everything, I hope you'll like what I'm sending you as much as I love mine. :)

What absolute perfect and wonderful things you sent. I cannot thank you enough for this lovely ray of sun to punctuate my evening. Thank you, thank you, thank you. xoxo
Comment: BLUE JOHN is brilliant. I cannot thank you enough. I am blown away by its rarity and metaphysical meaning. I will be sure to share any healing I get from it. It looks to be the kind of stone a person who is so empathy (I am) can use for personal healing. Many thanks sweet swap friend.
Comment: What a lovely swap this was! So excited to receive another package from you, you know my taste so well! I think I screamed out loud opening everything! Yaay! Really gorgeous scarf and pretty pretty bracelet with matching necklace! Looove it! Thank you so much Zoe! Will read the magazine on a sunny day on my balcony!

Comment: I got your package last night too! Aaaaah, so much lovely washi tape! It's all great, but I think my favourite is the strawberries. Hopefully I can actually USE it now rather than hoarding my (previously) tiny stocks like a miser! And so amused by the ATC sleeves... I had no idea they could have pictures... grumpy cat is fabulous. Now all I need is some actual time to do some arting... hoping for a minor miracle soon! Thank you very much for being one lovely thing to cheer an otherwise dreadful day :)

Just to point out though, the mini notebook you sent had a dead bug squashed between the 2nd and 3rd page. lol. Other than that, the matchbox nail files were cute, and so were the owl tissues. The pen is beautiful, and the lip balm & hand sanitiser would definitely be useful. Merry Christmas in advance!

Response: Oh my gosh! I am so sorry - I don't know when that little beggar crawled in there! I will send you another to make up for it.

However, I'm confused as your own clarifications for the swap twice said only classic style Pooh not modern style allowed. Only two of the items in this package fit that description, all the others are modern Disney. I like the items and appreciate them all, I'm simply confused.
Response: Kate, I have PM'd you. I am so sorry you were disappointed in the swap, and I am going to put it right.
Comment: Thank you for another wonderful swap!! I love all of the beautiful floral items -- the journal, cards, bookmarks, and pen are lovely, as is the little brush/mirror (which came at a good time; I needed a new brush!). I always enjoy receiving your swaps and this was no exception!!
Comment: Thank you for the fairy garden matchbox! It's really pretty, I especially love the sparkly cover. I think this was a popular theme, I did mine on an enchanted forest, but I had moss and fairies in it too!
Comment: Wow, Zoe, my neighbour dropped by today and brought me a package he had accepted for me yesterday - yours! Thank you soooo much! Everything is gorgeous, I love your paper crafts, especially the dragon bookmark. The matchbox is adorable and so are all the beautiful paper goods and the two necklaces. I hope you'll like my parcel as much as I liked yours, it really is a joy to swap with you. Thank you! :)
Comment: Zoe, I LOVE everything -- thank you!! The CD looks right up my alley, the pendants and the Peace and Love ATC's and scarf... everything is wonderful, and this swap came at a really good time (I had a lousy day, and your package definitely cheered me up!). Thank you so much!!!!
Comment: Your Sleeping Beauty ATC is so beautiful! It is definitely one of my favorite ATCs in my collection. I love the colors and how you did the background. Thanks again for such a magical envelope of goodies today - it really made my day.
Comment: Oh my goodness, Zoe, what a wonderful package of goodies! I just love everything! I was having an awful day so it really made me smile when I got home and saw the package waiting for me. And all the extras - I have to say my favorite thing in the whole package was the lovely Blue John stone. One of the most special items I have ever received in a swap - will treasure it always. I have it on display in my dining room with my collection of sand, sea glass, and pretty stones. Thank you so much!
Comment: Loved the baggie you send me! The little book is so sweet and the bookmarks are beautiful! And I am a little jealous that you live near such an interesting place. I hope I can visit it one day too. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you Zoe for everything you sent. I have just returned from London where I was able to visit the church that my 4xgreatgrandparents were married in. Nothing in Australia is that old. I will read all your information over the coming days. I love "Who Do You Think You Are?".
Comment: Uuuuh, I love your creations! The one with the two different types of paper is my favourite, thank you for sending along both, they are beautiful. I will come up with something worthy to write in there. :)
Comment: Zoe, thank you for the lovely selection of PCs you sent my way. Each and every one of these is so precious! You have been way too very generous with this swap. Thanks for being such an awesome partner to swap with!
Comment: And also this part of your parcel was perfect. The notecards are beautiful, the bird pendant is gorgeous AND thaaaank you for spreading some Cadbury Easter feelings to Germany! :D I'm eating them with my flat mate right now. Awesome, awesome swap, it really brought some spring to rainy/snowy Germany. :) Thank you!
Comment: Thank you ever so much for another wonderful swap! I adore the necklace, but all the beautiful paper items are lovely, too. Oh, and the keychain! It's unbelievable how similar our taste seems to be, everything is *so* spot on. :) Thank you a million times!
Comment: What a lovely swap! Thank you so much for the beautiful ATCs (yay for two of them!) The envelope and tape you used for the packaging were absolutely beautiful as well. I loved it! Also, thank you for the note (and on lavender paper! I did notice...) and the postcard. I bought two little lavender plants the other day, just little guys, and I dream of one day seeing fields of lavender, as in the card. Thank you so much...I loved it all. :)
Comment: Hi Zoe I received my matchbox today. It is so cute - I love the butterfly. I can't believe that you were able to put so many things in it. They will come in handy. Thank you very much for the postcards of the lavender fields. I would love to see them. Hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Comment: Whoaaaa, Zoe, how beautiful is this matchbox? It's so perfectly fitted into the theme and when I opened it, there was more woodland to discover. Absolutely brilliant and beautifully done. I should use this or future inspiration, because I'm still so new at making these. We should exchange one in our swap and you can give me expert advice. Also, thanks a bunch for adding a few Penguin postcards. I absolutely love these! That was really thoughtful! You're the best. :)
Comment: I love Smarties, they are a different candy in the US from the ones in England but I love English Smarties, so much better than M&M's.
The ATC is good, looks like she is mopping one very large floor. The Keychain is a clever idea and I love the matchbox shrine. Great ideas, great swap.
Comment: Love everything in the package including the letter! I cannot imagine still living in the house that I was born in, how wonderful for you, I love both of those movies and Kiera Knightley as an actress, beautiful area that you live in. How fortunate you are.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap, Zoe! I enjoyed everything, and the card is especially gorgeous. It reminds me of my visit to South Africa years ago. We saw a family of wild lions near a safari road and it was just a moment full of awe. :)
Response: I am so jealous of you seeing them in the wild!!!
Thank you for the kind rating, I am glad you liked it.
Comment: What an amazing job! My favorite item is, hands down, the little quote booklet. I sat down and read all the way through it. I love the pairings of great quotes and pictures. My second fave are the art postcards, especially with the Toy Story concepts--so neat to see glimpses of the artistic process. All the items are fantastic, though, and I haven't even opened the stickers and one of the surprise packs yet! (Saving those for when I need an extra smile and the satisfaction of opening a new goodie, LOL). Thank you so much for a great bag of items! Plus, extras that made me tear up. I had such a tough week and this made me feel extra special. Thank you! *HUGS*
Response: Oh, I am so glad it made a tough week a little better. Thank you for your lovely words.
Comment: What amazing goodies! I adore the otter keychain *snuggles* and I can't wait to use the greeting card assortment (I was looking for a barn owl card all last month for the Labyrinth fandom in a bag swap! Doh!)! Cute little penguin, owl mirror, toadstool necklace... you absolutely went above and beyond with this one. A thousand hearts to you!
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating - so very glad you liked everything
Comment: Lucky me to have you for a swap partner again :D Thank you SO much for all the wonderful goodies! Love the pretty note cards, pencils, and the beautiful note book. And well the chocolate .. what's not to love about something called cookie crumble?! Can't thank you enough Zoe for such an amazing swap!
Response: I always love to swap with you!!! When I saw the cookie crumble i knew i HAD to send it!!!
Comment: I think this might be the fastest I've ever received a package from overseas. :-) I love all of the SmashBook goodies; I'm going to have so much fun using them!!! Thanks so much for such a thoughtful swap!!! :-)
Response: Wow, It was fast!!! Glad you like all the goodies - have fun!!
Comment: Sorry for the late rate, I got bronchitis and was sick for two weeks and then had this mound of mail including bills, etc. ANYWAY. Love your name, both first and middle. You were born the same year as my daughter. Thank you for all the extras and thank you for coming up with this awesome swap.
Response: Ayn, Hope you are feeling better now. Thank you for the lovely rating
Comment: Zoe, what a lovely package! I truly enjoyed reading about how you came to own your sweet little birds and about all the birds in your garden! We definitely have some different ones here and I'll be sending off your package on Monday. Thank you as well for all the lovely notecards! Beautiful watercolor images--I'm so glad to have them. I can't believe your outdoor birds don't mind you or your dogs! That's really special! Again, thank you for sending such a nice package.
Response: Thank you for running such a fab swap - I really enjoyed it.
Comment: Thank you for the unicorn page. Thank you for hosting, I hope to be able to join in the March swap as well! I'm watching it now, but I don't want to join until I've gotten some of my others completed. The info sheet on the back of the page is really neat too, did you write that yourself or find it online somewhere? Thank you also for the extra PC! I do love unicorns! I believe I've gotten a unicorn pc from you before too, so THANK YOU for yet another great one!
Response: Hi, Thank you for your lovely comments. I got the text from a fantastic new book I just got - Brevertons Phantasmagoria. Unicorns are my favourite too!!
Comment: What a wonderful dragon-y package arrived in my pigeonhole this morning! I really like everything you sent -- thank you for your thoughtfulness in choosing so well. You may find a slight overlapping of tastes when my dragon baggie arrives for you .... but that's about us matching in taste so well!
Response: Fabulous. So glad you liked everything. We both obviously have excellent taste!!!
Comment: Thank you for the book! I also love the postcards, especially the unicorn. I have not yet read the book, but it looks good, I loved reading Greek/roman/Egyptian mythology as a child, and of course I still do!
Comment: I am so sorry that I never sent this rating! I am so sorry about that, I thought that I'd sent over the rating but I guess not :(. I just so happened to be going through past swaps to be sure that everything had been rated/received and realized that I never rated you. I truly apologize. The swap was amazing! I loved every bit and piece of it and I am very thankful that you were my swap partner. I loved the pens, notebooks, notecards and the fairy dust was amazing! Thank you!
Response: So glad you liked it! Thank you for the rating and the heart
Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful bag of sea creatures! I especially love the octopus pendant and fish washi tape -- the little seahorse cards are great, too -- really, I love the whole bag! Thanks, too, for the offer for smash book bits; I'd definitely like to take you up on that and maybe set up a private swap or trade whenever you're able. Many hearts for everything!
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words and rating - will PM you about a swap.
Comment: Wow, Zoe ... I can't even put into words how wonderful and perfect and pretty and great your swap was. I loved every little detail of it - and yes, especially the necklace. ;) It's so great doing this swap with you, I certainly have to live up to something now with my part of the swap. Your parcel was really exceptional, we certainly do have a few things in common. Thank you for absolutely making my day!!!
Response: Sophie, It is absolutely my pleasure! Glad you liked everything
Comment: BEAUTIFUL glass heart, Zoe! I would love to see you create that. I will have to Google the craft and watch someone do it. It is gorgeous and I loved all you sent to me. Thank you for the pc of William and Kate - it's my 1st! Thank you for sending me a birthday card. I never mind a belated card. :) I'd give you more than one heart if I could. Great swap! Thank you!
Response: Karla, I am so pleased you liked it - I am glad I tried out jewellery making again! Thank you for the kind comments, and the heart
Comment: Hey Zoe!! Oh....what a wonderful package!! Thank you so much for the thought that you put into everything you do! The girls sniffed and sniffed the card from Remy and Spock! They think a trip across the ocean is in order so that they can meet each other! :) Paul loves the chocolate and I love my pen and stickers! :) Love, Shannon
Response: You would all be so welcome! I am so happy you liked everything. Love Zoe
Comment: Hi Zoe,
I absolutely love everything that you sent -- thank you so much! It was a wonderful package to receive and really made my day. Everything is so pretty. And a special thank you for the book -- a great find! I look forward to other swaps in the future.
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous swap!!!! I am in LOVE with those socks!! Super cute! And the necklace and office supplies are great!! I will get lots of use out of all of it!! I hope to swap with you again soon!
Response: I loved those socks too!! Really pleased you liked everything I sent. I would love to swap with you again.
Comment: Wonderful! I never dreamed anyone else would chose a story from Greek myth. I hadn't read the Arachne story in that depth before. Love it. And the bookmark is wonderful!! So are the note cards. P.S. my story was Clytemenestra (not many people's favorite but mine for many reasons.)
Response: Great minds think alike! I love Greek myths, and I am so pleased you enjoyed it. I would have loved to have read your story too!
Comment: Funny how fate has plans for us - shortly after joining this swap my car was burled, and among the losses was my makeup bag with my mirror.
I love the pocket watch-style one you included. Many thanks!
Response: Oh no, how awful! Glad you like the swap, but so sorry that happened to you.
Comment: My beautiful package of goodies arrived! I'm so excited, and trying very hard to keep everything wrapped until Christmas! I'm so happy to have done this swap with you, and hope you will enjoy the goodies I sent. Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Response: So glad it arrived safely. Not long to wait now! Have a wonderful Christmas.
Comment: Zoe, thank you so much for the package of beautiful goodies! The socks & gloves warm and comfortable, just what I need for the winter months:) But I wish you had time to read my profile a little more carefully. I hate pink, unfortunately both the gloves and socks are pink. But love all the other goodies, the candle, and all the little gifts. Such a wonderful package to receive and I appreciate all your thought and care you put into it! Hugs&Peace from Istanbul, Merry Christmas <3 Melissa
Comment: Oh my! You have made my day! I am so SO happy with your Christmas gift! Another Alice in Wonderland book to add to my collection and such a beautiful one too! And the raven necklace! I love it.. thank you so much for such a special gift lots of love to you and Merry Christmas! x
Response: Hi Natasa, I am so glad you liked it! I thought the necklace would be "you", and I was so pleased when I saw the book for you. Have a great christmas, and looking forward to swapping with you again.
Comment: I'm out of words :D this is the best swap I have ever got. I did open them at my grandmothers house and each time I did open one I was like "omg looooook" :'D I love everything soooo much <3 thank you
Response: Glad you liked everything! Have a great christmas
Comment: ZOE!!! You are amazing!!! Thank you to the moon and back just for the extras you sent, they are gorgeous. I can hardly wait for Christmas so I can unwrap everything else. You are a kindred spirit, thank you for hosting our swap. I hope you enjoy what I've sent you too. I will write back after Christmas to regale you more. In the meantime Happy Christmas and thank you!! :o)
Response: Wow, I can't believe it got to you so quickly! Glad you like what you have seen so far, and I really hope you like the rest when you open it - not long now!!!
Comment: Oh my goodness what a great swap!!! Loved the post cards was cool to see after talking about it. the beads are beautiful and the candy yum yum! You are such a sweet heart!!! Hope my package doesnt take forever to arrive!!! Big hugs!!!
PS Couldnt wait till christmas so i gave my son the flying saucers and he was thrilled!!!
Response: Glad they arrived safely -I was so scared it would be a bag of crumbs instead of flying saucers! Just let me know when you would like some more, and I will happily find some more nice goodies for you and your son. Hugs, Zoe
Comment: Hello Zoe! Thank you so much for your gifts! I really canÂ´t wait to open them - but I will be good! :) I am soooo excited! I already love the green glitter reindeer!!! <3 And my boy was happy about his lollies! :)
I hope you will get mine soon!
Response: Not long now Nicole, would love to swap with you again in the New Year - just let me know.
Comment: Oh my goodness Zoe!! What an amazing, fabulous, ginormous box of goodness! Thank you SO much. Hubby and I both got a box to open today, and we were bad and opened everything. hehe. LOVED everything. I can't wait for you to get your box!!! :D Thank you again.
Response: Glad you liked it! Its not bad to open presents early as long as it is in December (that's my rule anyway!) Would love to swap again with you sometime.
Comment: This was an amazing, amazing, package! Everything was just perfect, the necklace, the books... Thank you so much. One of the **best swaps I've ever received!**
[Note: this is rated late not because it was received late! But because of an emergency on my end.]
Response: So glad you liked everything, I had fun putting it all together for you. Hope everything is alright with you now.
Comment: OMG!!! Zoe, I can't believe you went to such expense and sent so many items. I was perfectly fine with parcel one...you really sent an amazing amount of items. All of which are awesome and appreciated. But dear girl, you really did go to a lot of trouble and expense. A ton of hearts to you for being such an amazing partner. Thank you so much.
Response: Oh, I am just so glad that it arrived and you liked everything.
Comment: Hi Zoe! Thank you so much for the Christmas box! Where to begin?? First of all, Annabelle and Zoey LOVE the treats you sent for them. So sweet of you to think of them! You have quite a knack for finding the perfect treasures and so unique! It has been so much fun getting to know you through swap bot! I'll write privately, too, but wanted to say a quick thank you! I am going to save the wrapped packages for Christmas morning!! :) Thank you so much, Zoe! You have such a kind heart! xxoo Shannon :)
Response: Annabelle and Zoey HAD to have a treat too!!! Shannon, one of the things I most enjoy about swap-bot is swapping with people like you. It has been a joy getting to know you
Comment: Thank you for the gifts. I love 'the snowman' wrapping paper. I opened one gift and I love it (the hand cream and nail file) I always in need of both. I can't wait to open the rest. I hope we swap again in future! :-)
Response: SO glad it all arrived safely - I love the snowman! You have done well to resist opening - I am not sure I can wait!!!!!
Comment: It was so nice to get your package thank you for sharing your Goddess Athena with me. I learned some new things and reviewed some old (always good) and I just love how you enjoy that she is Goddess of War and Wisdom, I have always loved that too :) the pendant you included is lovely and I know just what to wear it with and love the incense sticks :)
Response: Ambrosia, it was a pleasure to swap with you again. Looking forward to it again in the future.
Comment: Hi Zoe I received my package today for this swap. I put everything in my Christmas stocking to be opened on Christmas. I am sure I will love everything. I will write again when I open it. Thanks again and I hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: Hi Zoe I received my parcel today for this swap. What a fun one to open. I was looking for a writing set and I went to about five stores to no avail. I don't think that people are writing snail mail so much anymore so they are hard to find. All of the handbag items are great - the sugar free mints are wonderful because I cannot have sugar. I really like the little mirror - what bling. I always love to receive pens and these are so cute. I am always sending out emery boards and now I have received some for myself. Thanks again and I hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Response: Pat, we still have some great writing sets - just let me know when you need more and I will send you some. Much love. Zoe
Comment: Once again, what an amazing package. It is for swappers such as yourself that I wish we could give an extra gold heart just to show how special this swap was. Thank you once again for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I am proud to be able to add another heart to your fabulous total.
Comment: Love it! I can't wait to read the book! Everything is great! My daughter will be so happy when she gets home from school! Her birthday is in 2 days, so the glass beads will be like a special birthday treat for her!
Comment: Thank you so so so much for this super duper happy mail package! That book looks like LOADS of fun, I'll read it very soon =) And I can't wait to get all the Christmas wrapping stuff away from my upstairs desk so I can start playing with beads again!
Response: Oh, so glad you liked it. As soon as I saw that book I thought of you!
Comment: How slack am I? Lol I finally post your package to you and the one to me arrives! Thanks heaps, I especially love the dragon cross stitch and picture :) Oh and thanks for wrapping some stuff - unfortunately though I couldn't resist! Heh
Response: So glad you liked everything, and thank you for my 150th heart!!
Comment: Hey Zoe!! I had no idea you were my partner for this swap! I never even think to look at who will be sending to me! How fun!! Thank you so much for all the goodies! I have never seen a magnetic bookmark, so that is super cool! I just used the last pages of my favorite notepad, so your timing was perfect on that! Such a fun package! You surely did complete your mission of making your partner happy!! :)
Response: Hi Shannon, I was so pleased to send to you again, I didn't mention it on last email so that it was a surprise!
Comment: Hey, Zoe! What a super fantastic swap! :D Thank You so much for being so thoughtful and sweet. The cards are lovely, the notebook's way cute and the coins put a huge smile on my face!! (That 'thrupenny bit' is totally Awesome! â™¥)Thank You, Thank You! Take Care & Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for sending all these goodies all the way from England!
I love everything! I certainly can use the cutouts and can actually scan them and print if I need more. This is a package that I will enjoy for a long time.
Comment: Wow! Great stuff! Love the matching notebook and pen! The mango hand gel smells good too! Thank so so much for the 2 mini stamp collections! Especially the butterflies! Thanks so much- 100 stars for you if I could! jen
Comment: Hello Zoe, I received your package this morning, THANK YOU ! That's a really lovely package, thank you very much ! I hope you'll receive one as beautiful as the one you sent me. Have an amazing day and thanks again !
Comment: Oh Zoe, what an AMAZING package! I can't thank you enough for your generosity! Honestly, you deserve at least 10 hearts for the care you put into this. I absolutely love everything - but definitely my favourite item is the Pre-Raphelite gift cards. They are so lovely I almost don't want to use them. Thank you, thank you - it's swappers like you that make this site such a wonderful place to be.
Response: Oh, I am so glad you liked everything. As soon as I saw the notecards I thought of you! I can't believe how quick you got it! Royal Mail aren't normally this good!
Comment: I had to laugh at the juxtaposition of pretty blue flowers against "She ripped her killer unconscious." LOL! What did you use to get that pretty metallic effect? P.S. I NEED THAT PUG STAMP! :) Thanks!
Response: You can't beat a floral killer! The metallic effect is a frost spray I use from a company called the glitterbox in the U.K..
Comment: This was my first ATC ever. I loved the butterfly such a serendipitous card, as I feel I have just come out of my chrysalis recently. Also, I truly appreciate the gift if extra blank ATC and envelopes as I haven't been able to find them around here. Thanks again Zoe.
Response: I am really pleased you like it. Just drop me a pm when you run out and I will happily send you some more blanks and envies
Comment: Thank you for the small note book and note cards!
Response: So glad you liked it. I set the notebook size for the swap at the smaller size as they are nice to keep in your handbag aren't they? Happy you liked the notecards I sent as extras. Thank you for joining my swap
Comment: My package arrived in a timely fashion and was filled with some really great stuff. I shared the butterfly stickers and a cupcake note card with my friend. So cute! Thanks again for swapping with this newbie Zoe!
Response: I really enjoyed our swap. Glad you liked everything
Comment: Wow, thank you for all the junk journaling fun. I love all the items and love that you included some travel themed goodies--it fits me well. Thank you so much for your lovely note and I would love to swap with you again. Enjoy and Happy Swapping!
Comment: What a beautiful butterfly ATC card! This is the first one I have ever received and I love it. The water color is so pretty. It makes me want to give it a try! Thank you for the sleeves and ATC card backs. Thanks again for such a great swap! :)
Response: My pleasure Shannon, hope to swap with you again sometime.
Comment: Hi Zoe!! Thank you so much for the AMAZING swap! The stickers and cards great! I already have some ideas on how to use them in a few scrapbooking pages I am working on. :)Thank you so much for taking the time to do a private swap with me. I really appreciate it and it has been so much fun to swap with you!
Response: Hi Shannon, wow, it got to you really quickly. So glad you liked everything. It has been an absolute pleasure swapping with you.
Comment: The ATC is so beautiful. The layers and the gold pen outlining make it look so dimensional. The gold sparkle papers really pick up the light. I will never trade this ATC and have a special place to display it. Thank you for the seven great backgrounds papers for use on other ATC's. I'm going to reuse the decorative items on the envelope the purple Washi tape the foil sticker and the Red Royal Mail mark.Love the Notecard.
Response: Oh, thank you so much. It is lovely to hear that. So happy you liked it. Hope to swap with you again.
Comment: Oh my goodness!! I am a newbie and signed up for two different swaps at the same time. This swap is the first one that I have received and it is beautiful!! The envelope is full of butterflies and embossed with a beautiful gold design. It is amazing! Zoe went above and beyond and picked out wonderful things for me! This is a perfect introduction to Swap Bot! Super fun swap!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the two ATCs! I really loved them both-- the time/travel one was really cool, and the hedgehog one was adorable. Thank you for participating, and I'm glad you enjoyed it :3
Comment: Zoe, the ATC is lovely. I can't quite explain what I'm going to say...but the ATC and your handwriting are so in sync; this is exactly the sort of art I expected to see! I mean this in the very nicest way...there's an elegant simplicity to both your handwriting and your art. Thank you for a lovely addition to my collection...and for the lovely extra background papers, too!
Comment: What a beautiful ATC ! Thank you so much! =)
The ATC will get a special place here in the living room, because it's so pretty! :3
Also thank you for the other things.
You made me very happy. :D
Response: Oh, Thank you! so pleased that you liked it.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC! Like you, I haven't been making ATCs for very long but I never would have guessed...yours looks fantastic! Thank you for the extras too...I love them and I will definitely put them to good use!
Response: Hi Hannah, So glad you liked it, and that the extras will come in usefull. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: The unicorn card I received from you is absolutely GORGEOUS, and I love the special effect - thank you so much! They're my favorite mythical creature - an extension of my love of horses, I guess. :o) I wish I could give you more than one heart for this! :oP
wish I could give you
Comment: I love the cards that you sent! Thank you so much! The illustrated cards are beautiful. The unicorn card is my first card with special effects. And I recognize the titanic card because I have been to the exhibition!! Really really love your cards!!
Comment: Thank you for the nice note cards, the dog with the polka dots is my favorite, tea and the nice note. I looked at some images of Derbyshire. You are so right it is beautiful. Happy crafting, Karen
Comment: Thank you so much for everything!! I love it, that Nivea I can even find in the states! I just love everything so much!! You letter sounds a lot like mine I have no clue how some of what ends up in my purse makes it in there in the first place. Thanks again!!
Comment: Hello Zoe, your package arrived today and I was so happy receiving your letter and the craft papers and goodies you sent ãƒ¾(ã€‚â—•à¸ºâˆ€â—•à¸º)ãƒŽ I learnt more about Kawaii form my sister when she was still living in Singapore. She's moved to Japan now :) Kawaii is mainly cute in the Japanese term :D Wow your sister was born here? That's cool! Have you visited Singapore? I have never visited England but would want to int he future! Thank you for this happy swap!! <3
Response: HI, so glad you liked everything. Unfortunately, they lived in Singapore before I was born so I haven't visited, but I would love to!
Comment: Your happy parcel arrived today and I was simply blown away at how much thought, time and care you put into this swap!!! A million hearts to you!!!! My bracelet is absolutely gorgeous and I am already planning tomorrow's work outfit around it so that I can show it off! You made my day, and my husband and daughter were both so touched that you included them too! I will absolutely be writing back! Cheers! :o)
Response: So glad you liked everything - it would be lovely to hear back from you.
Comment: WOW thank you so so so much for the delicious sounding teas (right up my alley) and the cute little stationery set! I was so excited to open the package, and I love that you wrapped it up in tissue too! I will be writing you back as soon as I can :)
Response: So glad you liked them - It would be lovely to hear from you
Comment: Thank you so much for all the yummy candy. I love so much the Matryoshka book and the other goodies are all so awesome too. The pen is so cute and so are the Lion and Elephant stuff. Honestly you were way too generous with everything that you sent me. I wish I could give you 1000 hearts =)
Response: So glad you like them - I can't believe it all came at once - I sent the book ages after! That's UK post for you!
Comment: I should update mine as well - I would love to own a sanctuary to host wild cats who would otherwise be left to die - you can come photograph them anytime!! I also really could use a lesson on the ole sewing machine and i really would like to get healthy in 2013~ Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the PC! I am a total Anglophile! I have been to England twice and would love to go again! Just a reminder to put the name of the swap on your cards. Though this one was pretty easy to figure out :)
Response: hi, thank you. This was one of my first swaps and I didn't think until after I posted it that I should have put the swap name on - doh!
