Comment: These really turned out nice, Shelia! I love the pink one with the tiny torn collaged pieces and the pink bows! And you filled all of them (5!) with cute bits and pieces of useful ephemera! Thank you so much for such a lovely swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for my wonderful package that arrived today. I’m sorry your stamps have disappeared but am thrilled with everything you sent me. The papers are lovely and I’m excited about all of the printed papers. I’m looking forward to using them. I particularly like the women. I plan to put the heart with I didn’t choose you , my heart did in my husband’s anniversary card. We are about to celebrate our 57th wedding anniversary on the 17th. I appreciate your generosity.
Comment: Shelia: If I could give you a 10 rating and 10 hearts I would! These little boxes and bags are fabulous and they all coordinate so well. And you sent me 6 of them!I hated to open them! But what wonderful surprises I found inside - buttons, stickers, ribbon, washi tape, gems, clothes pins, pretty papers, die cuts - so many wonderful little goodies for my Valentine crafts. Thank you so, so much for all these wonderful little treasures. I will have such fun using them. I'm going to save all the little bags and boxes and use them as well as they are perfectly constructed! Thank you so much for another fantastic swap!!
Comment: Shelia: I get so happy when I see mail from you! This neutral tag is so gorgeous. I love a neutral palette anyway and kind of shy away from really bright colors. You have mace such a beautiful little nature themed collage on this tag. And the journal card is a perfect accompaniment to the tag. Beautiful soft colors and images - love all the butterflies. And you always package everything in such a way that I don't want to spoil it by opening! And many thanks for all the pretty extra butterflies! It's always a treat to swap with you!
Comment: I love the stationery sheets you included with your swap! Yes, we can be penpals, although it usually takes me awhile to answer letters. Did you used to be in a rubber stamping club in Covina? It was back in the 90's. Just wondering. I was a member in that club.
Response: Hey there...glad you liked...and was it at the shop across from the post office? If so...yes...I was a member.
Comment: Shelia, you amaze me! This tag is simply stellar. It's so nicely composed and I'm in love with the image of the girl you used as your focal point. Oh, those butterflies--and buttons--and all those layers! This one is magazine-worthy ;+) And...MANY thanks for all the lovely extras you sent--kitties! yay! What a wonderful swap. I was so lucky you were my sending partner.
Comment: SHEILA! You amazing person! How got I be this lucky being your partner in another swap :-D I *LOVE* the embroidered bookpage pockets -- it's awesome how they're quite different and still somehow similar. You are too sweet including embroidery floss for me. THANK YOU! Sending lots of love and good karma into the universe for you <3
Comment: Wow! You certainly know how to brighten a week! Thank you so much for what seemed like endless goodies. I will be sure to share but there is so much that I plan to keep just for me! Thank you so very much!
Comment: Hi Shelia, thank you so much for the Deer card and bonus Christmas Reindeer card, they are both lovely. The Deer card is precious with the beautiful watercolor background and the daddy endearing to the little one. Is that dimensional paint dots? I would love to know. The second Christmas Reindeer card is so magical and the deer image is so wooly and strong. Thank you very much for the extras and for the swap. Great work friend, I'll look forward to more swaps with you. Stay well.
Comment: I had so much fun with these that I made some for my family as well. Thank you for the one you made for me. You do beautiful work. The clear stamp will make a great addition to my collection. I am sorry to see the season drawing to a close but I have decided that I will work on Christmas stuff through the year this year so I will be ready next October LOL. Merry Christmas
Comment: Great job on the swap. I loved your butterflies. So tiny and the attention to the detail, wow. Ok on the awesome goodies. I love the cardstock. I actually like the samples because they are perfect for the small die cuts. I hate cutting into a whole sheet. I've been obsessed with making flags so this size is great. Where did you get the cardstock? I've never seen the sparkle. I'm going to message you, so check your messages.
Comment: Oh my goodness! This was akin to receiving a treasured gift instead of a swap! Shelia, you are a master paper crafter. The booklet you created is absolute perfection . . . all those tiny enclosures and fun things to use! What a treat! And the paper you used to create the base is so vintage-y beautiful, as are all the lovely embellishments. Thanks, also, for the amazing extras! Another wow ;+) for sending the loveliest assortment of goodies for me to use for my own creations. Many thanks for this most wonderful swap!
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much Shelia for the loaded envie. I absolutely adore it. It was so fund to go through all of the pockets and goodies you included. It really made my day. Definitely going on my wall of faves. Love, love , love it!!! Bunches of hearts!
Comment: Oh Sheila! What a phenomenal tag flip to receive! I keep flipping through the tags, and each time I see something new! And...all the sweet extras you tucked into some of the tags...is your middle name "Santa"? Thank you for sending me something so special!
Response: Hey there...I'm glad that you are enjoying the tags. I had fun making them. Happy Holidays...
Comment: Since we are in Advent, I opened my presents when they arrived today. Thank you for the socks and the reusable tote bag. I appreciate both. I immediately put the tote bag in my side car pocket. I really liked how you packaged everything. Merry Christmas.
Response: Hey there...I'm glad you liked what I sent and will find the items useful...enjoy...
Comment: Thank you for the pretty wrapped gifts! Happy holidays to you! Stay warm and safe!
Response: Hey there...I got your package and read your letter...I'll be writing you back in response in a few days. I'm glad you received this swap ok. Be safe as well...stay warm yourself...lol...and enjoy...Happy holidays!
Comment: Thank you. What a lovely package. I will be able to use it all. I like how you pointed out on the envelope where to open. When I need to use scissors to open a package I worry that I will end up cutting the contents.
Comment: Wow! Thank you for a very loaded pocket! Everything is great. I especially like the vellum pocket that was die-cut on the front. I look forward to trying the Peppermint Bark tea.
Response: Hey there...I’m glad you liked everything. I actually received that die cut vellum envelope in a previous swap. I really liked it as well and it was hard to part with it but it also went well with what I sent you so I decided to share...🙂
Comment: I never received this, but I’ve received from you since this swap and I know you’re good for your swaps. Probably lost in the mail and it’s fine. You don’t need to resend. I just want to rate and archive. Trying to clean up my swaps a bit.
Comment: Sheila: This autumn themed folio is just wonderful! I love the beautiful sunflower on the front and your coordinated papers are perfect for this theme. And inside you have included so many fun goodies in all the pockets you created. I love the mug shaped card that opens with a pocket inside - so cute! Also love the little branch of leaves you tucked in - have never seen these before. Fun note pad and all the little fall themed tags and cards. So beautifully put together! Thank you for an amazing swap!
Comment: Thanks! Yours is number 24 to open in December. Unfortunately the pretty plastic snowflake broke in two places. Hoping I can glue it to repair. Your envie had hand cancel and it wasn't! This would go really great with my blue, silver and white tree!
Comment: I love mini mail and yours was no exception!!! I loved all the little envelopes!!! The goodies you put in were very original as well. I like the swap cards and the die cuts. Thank you very much!!!
Comment: holy moly macaroni! Guess what arrived in the mail today???? a JAM-PACKED Super-loaded Halloween bag! my goodness! I don't know how you even got everything to fit into this bag. It was just F.U.L.L. !!! SO MUCH FUN! and very much worth waiting for.
I don't know what the delay was - but it is here now and SO VERY MUCH WORTH THE WAIT!
P.S. I notice now that you had the zip code of 56650. Moorhead MN is 56560 There was a white label added (maybe from the post office?) with my address and a corrected zip code! thank you USPS!!
this was a gigantic WIN! thank you for your generosity!!!
Comment: Hope you have a great thanksgiving.
You forgot to put swap name any where took me a few to find you♥️
Response: Hello...sorry about that. I always include one of my swap cards with all my swaps. I must have gotten brain freeze and forgot to include in your swap envelope...which is unusual for me as I know how frustrating it is to get a swap package and not know who it is from. Thank goodness my swap name was on my return label.
Comment: Thanks for the cute homemade coupons! I have a broken toe so my husband won’t be massaging my right foot! He does like making turkey hot dogs so he can make that for me. Thank you for the bookmarks.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful Swap-bot of the Scripture Notecard. I will be posting this notecard up so I can read the scriptures daily!
I love the extras - stickers and swap exchange cards 🙏🏼❤❤❤❤ So thoughtful!
Comment: Sheila this folder and the ephemera are absolutely beautiful! I love this paisley paper that you used and the doilies and butterflies are just the perfect compliment. And oh all the goodies inside! The little note pads, card, and envelope full of butterflies for me to use, tags and all the other ephemera you added - wow! This is just so well done and so beautiful - thank you so much for this perfect little piece of art!
Comment: Hi Shelia;+) Wow...this is SO pretty! I just love the base paper with the blue glitter swirls and all the absolutely gorgeous tuck-ins. You even created a little tuck spot at the bottom corner, you clever crafter, you! Love all the little ephemera pieces you created, the roses, the lace and fibers--it's just perfection! Many thanks, too, for the entire envie of extras for creative play. What a wonderful swap.
Comment: It is always fun to open up mail from you. I did spot the mistake, but kind of like it. I actually made mistakes on mine too but are remaking it, bit of a perfectionist. But maybe in future I need to embrace the little mistakes and just run with them.
Thank you for the lovely piece with the beautiful mistake and the paper you included.
Comment: I apologize for my delay in rating (I don’t recall where I put what you sent me), but I’m sure it was happy mail filled with heart! Thank you for joining in the swap with me! 8-11-2020 A lovely envie filled with pretty 💜 purple hearts arrived today! Thank you sooo much for sharing something you made in one of my fave-shades!
Comment: OMG Sheila! what a generous, beautiful and quality swap! I will sure use all the items you gave me for crafts, even though they are so beautiful it's such a shame to touch them (:
Thanks again, and have a healthy and lovely summer there in California.
Comment: These are simply lovely! Pink and green--one of my favorite combos--and that gorgeous blue. LOVE the fibers and the die cuts you used! That pink butterfly is just beautiful. I just love all the special cuts you included in the pocket for me to use--so very thoughtful. You are a die cut master!
Response: You know me and my style...LOL...I'm glad you liked...enjoy1
Comment: Hi Shelia . . . so nice to swap together again! I'm simply in love with the pocket you created for me. I'm such a fan of pink and green together. The print is gorgeous--love that sweet little bird, and the fibers you used on the edge, which match perfectly. Thank you so much and I hope to swap together again soon!
Comment: I totally agree with you, even though I personally struggle with the physical and psychological points at times. I know that when I'm eating healthy and making healthy choices in my everyday life, then I'm much happier and have more energy. Thanks for your comment!
Comment: Good answer 👍 I totally agree. I rarely go to a drive thru either. My mum would go to McD's everyday for a Hazelnut Latte (hot), a folded egg, and a hash brown... if she could!! I prefer to eat inside at a table, while it's hot! 😉
Comment: HI again Sheila and thank you for the doodle leaves! I think they turned out great! I redid mine twice and could not decide which I found the least objectionable! I just don't have any confidence in my ability to paint something simple. But these look wonderful and you used a great variety of colors and patterns. And thanks for the extra water color paper - it's really nicer than what I have on hand so I will try to make something special with it!!
Comment: Oh Sheila! How excited I was to see your return address! I received two amazing seed packet envelopes plus a whole bunch of cool extra goodies in today's mail. Your seed packets turned out just perfectly - I love the papers and embellishments that you used and how you finished them off with touches of glitter and the sayings on each. Just a treat to receive. And thank you so much for taking to time to check my profile and select extras accordingly - above and beyond! Thanks for another wonderful swap!
Comment: Your pocket arrived today. Thank you very much it is beautiful. And as the text often says, it is meant as a guide and an exact copy is not mandatory, so no reason to rate you down. Everything made with love and care deserves a heart.
I also love the paper you included, the brown with text and blue glitter pattern over it. It was an instant WOW reaction.
Comment: Oh Sheila! This is just the most amazing thing! I cannot believe how much detail and care and time you put into this. It is full of the most amazing collection of goodies and I love this paper collection that you used. And it was perfectly laid out so that when I opened it, it looked like a little gift "basket"! Thank you SO much. I wish I could give you more than 5 stars for this as it goes so far above and beyond what was required. Cheers!
Comment: Oh my gosh! This has to be one of the most beautiful and amazingly packaged swaps ever. I cannot thank you enough for everything. Even opening the package itself made me smile! I wish i could give more hearts. Thank you so much!
Comment: Holy Cow Shelia! I'm blown away by your generosity! Everything was packaged so beautifully and professionally too! I love everything! All the beautiful blues, greens, pinks, and vintage browns...perfect! The die cut doileys and butterflies on specialty paper are gorgeous. The vintage papers and Daphne's diary items are perfect to use in my junk journally. The tea folio is awesome! I have never seen a tea folio like this. Very cool! I'll have to try to make one some day. The green teas will be most enjoyable. And lastly, where on Earth did you get this Daphne's diary writing tablet/journal? Did it come in a magazine or did you reuse a cover and print the pages yourself? Either way it is stellar! The writing pages are gorgeous! You sure know how to make a gal feel special! Thank you for all the crafty love! All the hearts to you Shelia!!!
Response: You are welcome...I had fun putting the items together for you...enjoy1
Comment: Just... WOW. I can hardly find the words. I received your mail earlier this week but was so awed after peeling off the first layer -the envelope- I kept it wrapped up to enjoy looking at it a while longer. But tonight it was time! I really, REALLY love everything about your swap: the things you've sent, the presentation, the thought. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for this wonderful treat and warm greetings from The Netherlands!
Response: Hey there...I contemplated on what you send you...I'm glad that you liked what I ended up doing. I had fun and glad you liked. Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for an awesome swap! loved the decorated envie and all of the goodies. I can't wait to wear the scarf, the bag will be useful-since I often put things in bags when I pack for anywhere my family calls me the baby lady.
Response: You are welcome...I'm glad you liked the package. More swaps to come...enjoy!
Comment: Your junk journal is beautiful! So many flowers, and so fun to flip through! Thank you so much! I hope your sewing machine is working soon, but I don't mind at all that you left it unbound, as I can use the papers in any order this way. Thanks again!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. After the fact...I read your profile again and realized that you don't care for purple...I almost had a heart attack. That was not intentional...my using so much of it that is. I glad you liked everything though,...Enjoy!
Comment: What a beautiful package! It came around my birthday, all wrapped up like a present. :) I love the journal cards you made. And all the extras are so thoughtful and much appreciated. You nailed kawaii! :) And it was so sweet of you to send the images for my daughter. Thank you so much!!
Response: Happy Belated Birthday...I'm glad you liked everything...enjoy!
Comment: Oh, I do that so often - sign up then lose interest! What you made is perfect ❤️, even without stitches! Hope you get your machine going again 😁 Thank you for the huge fun journal & supplies!! It is going to be my vaca journal for next month! ❤️❤️
Comment: Yes!!! The “Easter Card Swap” arrived in a beautiful purple-flowered envelope today. Wow, I would say you definitely made up for the lost Easter card. I’m sorry it was lost, but the tea is such a lovely surprise. That Hot Cinnamon Spice is calling my name right now. I will love trying each one and that’s an entirely new brand to me. ☕️❤️‼️Thanks so much!!!!!
Response: I'm glad it finally arrived and that you liked everything. The original card that I sent was very cute...I'm bummed it was lost!
Comment: Dear Shelia, I just loved recieving and opening your colourful swap! There was so much to discover! It is pouring outside and your swap brought me rays of sunshine and a big smile on my face. Thank you!
Comment: I don't think your background squares are messed up at all! I like the different sizes! I had a hard time with this one, too - I'm not much of a doodler, so I was terrified to actually draw anything on my squares, lol :) Thank you!
Response: You are so kind...I was going nuts when I was creating them but I had to get them in the mail. I'm glad you liked them...enjoy!
Comment: Lol! Your broken needle made me laugh - not at you, but because I have been there myself! So very sorry, but you forged on ahead beautifully!! There are so many layers and embellishments I could spend ages admiring your tag! ❤️ Thank you so much for the gorgeous work as well as the gift of envies and sequins! Splendid swap!! ❤️❤️
Response: You are very welcome...enjoy...BTW...I still have not purchased any replacement needles...I've only been out of my house -2- times since the middle of February!!! Ill have to find them online or in a store locally and send my husband to get them...lol Enjoy!
Comment: You did a really fun job on the decorated window envie-love the bright colors and the style of doodle flowers on it. And then of my goodness-I'm in 7th heaven with all the extra goodies you sent me. The scotties are just adorable-even the boo-boo ones! I have started a large scrapbook and put things in it that have any thing to to with scottie dogs-from books-from swaps-etc-so much fun thanks for your contribution for it! I love the paper you used to cut out Annabelle's shape-she is hard to represent as compared to black cat Lenore-thanks for those too-such wonderful goodies. Thanks for sharing! The name of the city across the river from is Moorhead. That where my "local" independent scrapbooking store is where I would take card making classes on Tuesday nights and had week-end retreats there at least once a month. I miss those as haven't been to any of those since March when everything was stay at home. They still had curbside pick up so that was something and now they have finally opened up for reduced hours and by appt only. Haven 't been back yet. Take care and stay safe! Thanks again for being a SUPER SWAPPER!
Response: Hey there...I'm glad you liked what I made for you...I had fun making it. Enjoy!
Comment: O...M...G...SHEILA!! What a fantastic swapper you are!! 4 bags of chips in such AMAZING themes! I love them all! What a fabulous presentation as well in the lovely orange folder with surprise animal note paper to use as well! You have spoiled me!! Thank you! I wish that I could give you 1,000 hearts for your generosity! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!! :D You have made my day!
Response: You are very welcome.....I'm glad you liked them because I had fun making them for you! Enjoy...
Comment: What beautiful envelopes you sent, and the packaging exquisite as well! So glad for the size of envies you sent too, great for long letters! I also loved the extra long writing sheet, very cool and I haven’t seen anything like it before. P.S. my mom’s name is Shelia, spelled just like yours! You’re the 2nd swapper this month I’ve met with that same name and spelling too!
Comment: Wow! What a great big envelope of goodies you sent me! It was like Christmas looking through everything! I loved everything and thank you for all the extras! Wish I could give you an extra heart!
Comment: You sent 2! Yippee! Shelia, these are gorgeous. I'm in love with the paper you used on the larger one--that must be the calendar page and the colors are beautiful. And all those wonderful inserts! I can't wait to begin using them. The littler 'closet' is just as sweet. In fact, I MUST know how to get some of the paper you used inside! It's a green floral print with metallic pink floral accents--BEAUTIFUL! Thank you SO much for these lovely booklets.
Response: Hey Kristi...You are very welcome and I’m glad you liked them. The answer one was not finished. I was not happy with how it was turning out. I thought it was to small.
Advyih know...I take pictures of all my swaps but believe it or not...this time I firgit to take picture of the small one as I had not intended to send to you but at the last minute...decided to. I can’t remember the paper so can yuh send me a quick picture?
Comment: Oh my gosh, Shelia, these die cuts are AMAZING! What a lot of work! I can't wait to use these--I'm in love with the paper you used to create these and you sent so many! I'm in heaven! Thank you so much--this is about as 'sunshine-y' as one can get!
Comment: Thanks for joining this swap! I wish I could give you more hearts because you went above and beyond. I absolutely love the little pocket you made from the sack, I’ve never seen that before. I’m going to try my hand at that...lol. I love all that you sent and you packaged it all so pretty and nice. Thank you for everything.
Response: Hey there....glad you liked everything...”enjoy”!
Comment: Sheila, you are AMAZING!! I cannot believe the multitudes of amazing die cuts you sent me! I am floored at how generous you were with this swap.

Comment: I finally picked up my mail...and what a wonderful surprise seeing your swap in there! I love the bookmarks you made! Thank you so much! My fave is the one with print leaves, but I really love them all...and also the cool “vase”! You’re so creative!
Comment: What fun packaging and all those Tiffany lamp stamps! It is really nice to get a business size pretty envelope along with all the regular usual size one gets in these swaps. Thanks for extra die cut tags and flowers-thanks for sharing!
Comment: Hi Shelia! I'm so glad you sent the message; your beautiful pocket was in a little group of swaps I haven't yet rated. Well . . . of course yours is lovely! I love the neutral color palette and I am so THRILLED with the little kitty notes! So special! Thank you so much and please forgive the (very) tardy rating.
Comment: You definitely stand by your name...1koolkrsfter. 🤗 Thanks a bunch for the butterfly tag booklet you sent. I love your color selection. No, the branch didn’t break.😂 I also like the fact that I use the butterflies for other projects.
Comment: As always, you sent A+ quality swaps! I admire how you put together the kit and the letter you included telling me about your style.
Everything inside is gorgeous! The colors, the theme, EVERYTHING! thank you so much for the time you took to put things together and the inspiration you have given me!!
Comment: Hi, thank you for a delicious chocolate! I finally had a chance to taste it. The swap had a little problem to find my doors because postman left it in a different building. Fortunately, a young girl was so nice and dropped it to me by herself :)
Response: Hello... interesting...! I used the address you provided.
Comment: Your package took the scenic route from CA to NY! LOL Can't believe it made it on January 24, 2020! I wonder where it spent New Years? LOL! Anyway, thank you for the lovely card and letter and the wonderful washi tape and Daphne's Diary journal! I will put it to good use!
Comment: Thank you soooooo much. I am new to this type of paper crafting. You way out did yourself. I am going to use yours as a baseline on future types of swaps. I wish I could give you more hearts. Thank you again.
Comment: Thank you! You always send great swaps! I love that you sent sheets of 1 and 2 cent stamps...I actually need these since I use a lot of vintage postage. I’m normally off by 1 or 2 cents. Also I love this small plastic envelope you sent. I cannot find them in my area. They are great for bulky swaps that don’t need a padded envelope. Thanks again for everything!!
Comment: Oh my gosh you did too much girl!! I loved my package! Purple is my favorite color! And yeah my profile is odd. It doesn't give much detail to what I like. Because I love anything! You are very creative!!! It's a beautiful package, thank you!!!
Comment: WOWZA! Shelia, these embellishments are truly amazing. First, the presentation is off the charts. It looks like a very high-end boutique piece. I absolutely love that each one is 3-D. They're all so unique it is hard to pick a favorite--they're ALL my favorite ;+) Thank you for the sweet butterfly charm as well--so pretty and I'll be hoarding that just for me. This is one of the nicest swaps I've received in a very long time; many, many thanks for the time and effort that went into creating it for me.
Comment: OMG I LOVE EVERYTHING IN THE ENVELOPE! You such a nice person to give all of the goods which I really like! Thank you for all of things that you put into my envelope! It’s really nice to open it🧡
Comment: ❤💖💕💓❤💖💕💓❤💖💕💓❤💖💕💓❤💖💕💓❤💖💕💕💓❤💖💕💓❤💖💕💓❤💖💕 Can you tell that i absolutely 😍 this package!!! I do not wish to unpack it. IT IS AMAZING!!
After i send my swaps off, i always think "oh i could have done more or added more"
You have brought tears to my eyes!
5 hearts are not enough
Response: Did it make it in a reasonable and decent condition? I was concerned and tried to package to minimize any damage. I do hope you like what I made for you and the enclosed contents. I never got the other items that I wanted to include. The company lied to me and refunded my money...😡 Enjoy...🤗
Comment: Hi Shelia! Wow, I loved reading about your year in review and getting to know you a bit better. I'm 63 now and we (regularly) receive ads from cemeteries! haha . . . Thank you, also, for the AMAZING Daphne's Diary diary--what a thoughtful and precious gift. Hope to swap together again very soon!
Comment: Hi Sheila! Received your swap today and thank you so much ! Love the coloring book you sent me and card too! I don't have the coloring book any longer though. My grand daughter Brooke age 21 stole it from me. She loves abstract. I really don't too much. As is too hard for me to color. Not your fault since where you are is all they had. So, Don't blame yourself, ok? It has a good home though, with my grand daughter, hee! I so appreciate the thoughtfulness you put into getting it for me and thank you so much! Oh, The special soaps, don't even worry about those. I get them for my Psoriasis & they are expensive. I buy my special soaps from Etsy.com. You have a wonderful Christmas & a Bright & happy New year 2020. Going to be weird writing that out!
Did you know that I associate your name with happy mail? Well I do. Your generosity abounds! Thank you for all the wonderful goodies you filled my envie with.
I look forward to swapping with you too in 2020.
Comment: What a super festive package I received in the mail!!!!! Thank you very much, I put it in my Christmas basket. I can't wait for Christmas morning to open my goodies!!!!
Merry Christmas!12/28/19 Shelia, Thank you so very much!!! I LOVE the Alcohol kit and can't wait to start playing!!! I hope you have a greta 2020!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful handmade Christmas cards and tags you sent. You are very talented and generous.
I sent them to very special people who will appreciate your work. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Shelia, Thank u so much 4 the loingvely card, letter & wonderful journal!! If I could give u more hearts I would! I am sorry 2 hear that u r having so much problems with ur neuropathy. I am having problems with mine, 2, only n my back/legs. I can hardly walk with it. Being diabetic is not 4 wussies!! Hope ur holidays r happy!!
Comment: If I was able to give you more hearts I would. You outdid yourself as a swap partner for this swap. I absolutely love the monkey card and pic and all the extra little monkey’s you sent. Thank you so much!!
Comment: Thank you for your answers to the questions. Thank you for the nice Diary. What a special gift for Christmas!
May God bless you as you spend time in the Bible. I suggest reading a daily devotional. Get one where you can read more than one scripture, think about what you’re reading, and pray about applying it.. I read “Our Daily Bread.”
Comment: Hi Sheila,
‘Thank you for the lovely Cards and stickers etc. Love your yuminess descriptions. ‘Did you know that you send me this swap twice? They both arrived today.
My mailbox was very happy.
Have a nice day,
Comment: I always love what you send, so I know this is going to be fabulous too!
I'm going up wait a few days to open, I'm opening a few cards a day! I know I'll love whatever it is! Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!
Comment: I just got my box! I loves all the papers, the straw rosette, and envelopes and stuff!
my mom took the apple cider and cracker jack (I told her to give me the stickers)

Response: Hey there...I’m glad yuh liked...that was my first time using that stamp. I saw it in Michaels about -8- months ago and I bought it ...not knowing quite what to do with it. I looked on YouTube and other places to see what to do...🤓
Comment: Thanks for your answers and for the awesome diary. Where did you get it? I love the beautiful pages!
Response: Hey there... I’m glad you liked the journal ...I just wanted to send a little “something”. I actually ordered from Daphne’s Diary in Australia. That was an experience all in itself. I’ll write you again one day and tell you all about it!!!🤪

My Mom was just given mail from the PO going back to April and your swap was in there.
Response: Hello...was there anything with the card I sent you?
Comment: Girl— you went for it with this book of papers!! Holy cow— I feel you about the instructions, I put mine together a couple of times before I decided on the final outcome too
I am super stoked to dig in and start making some stuff with these new to me papers— my heart is very happy, THANK YOU 😊 oh ps— mine had to go to Sweden 🤪
Response: I’m pleased that you liked what I sent. Enjoy...🤗
Comment: I loved your letter! I actually eyeballed the sakura stationary at Daiso last time I made the trip but I was already buying too many letter sets so I unfortunately put it back. Now I have some to mess around with! Thank you!! <3
Also, I could read your writing just fine. Hope your hand is better!
Comment: Thank you Sheila, great assortment for Easter and spring. I love flowers! Oh and the quotes, love to use these in my art journals. Curious what kind of ink did you use? I hope your hand is doing better. I smashed my finger with a hammer once and couldn't type for days! Ouch. Happy springtime!
Response: Hello...I’m glad yuh liked and hopefully there are enough “good” impressions for you to use...🤪...the ink stamp pad I used was the “studio g” brand.
Comment: Wow!!! I wish I could give you a hundred hearts! 💕💖💜. Your package was amazing!!! I love all of the beautiful papers, the amazing envelopes, the way you packaged everything and your outer envie — decorated with a whole garden of your hand-drawn daisies! Thank you for all of your effort and generosity! I love it!!!
Response: Hey Jana....glad you liked. You know how we Paper lovers are... lol....enjoy...🤗
Comment: Hi neighbor. Thanks for the great notecards. I live just south of the 91 and west of the 57. Hope we are partners again.
Response: Hey...I’m right off the -15- between the 6th Street exit and Limonite...between the -91- and the -60-. I’m sure we will run into each other again. There is another person that I regularly swap with that is in Yorba Linda.
Comment: Thats only really nice swap!!!!!!!!!!!! Is your home as organized and pretty as your swap is? All tidy and organized? Dont tell me I"d be envious. lol And you sent an add'l ounce. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Response: Pretty much...lol...glad you liked...enjoy...🤗
Thanks so much for the awesome package! It came today, just in time for St. Patrick's day! Love everything, especially the polka dot bags. Thanks so much for putting so much thought into the packaging, too...I appreciate all those little details! Would love to do a private swap with you sometime if you're interested ;-) But either way...happy swapping and thanks so much!
Response: Hello... I’m glad you like and glad it got there on time! I would absolutely love to do a private swap. Just let me know when you are ready and what you have in mind. Thanks...🤗
Comment: This was such a lovely swap to open, thank you for all the flowery items. I can't imagine anyone rating you down for sending your items in these boxes, I think it was so creative and fun which is what SB is all about ❤️
Comment: What fun! An envie in clear plastic so none of the bits and bobs get ripped off! Your envie should have a swap of its own--it's a geometric wonder! Thanks, also, for the lovely enclosures; I'll definitely put them to good use! Hope you're going to stay around; don't let the forum turkeys get you down . . . they're a bunch of gobblers!
Comment: Hi Shelia, thanks for the cool die cuts, love the pineapple. Also, thanks for participating in my swap. Happy crafting!!
Response: Hello...I’m glad you like what I sent. I usually do the “unexpected” ...lol...😎...I sent pieces/cuts that hopefully can be a “starter/addition” on another project such as a homemade card or a scrapbook layout. This was a fun swap. Enjoy...🤗
Comment: Thank you for the super cute greeting card and the lovely note you wrote me. I know these things I just forget to do them some days; thank you for the reminder. Also thank you so, so much for the notecards you enclosed. I love the hydrangea bouquet card so much. It brings back fond memories for me. Thanks again 😊❤
Response: Hello...I’m glad you liked what I sent...enjoy!🤗
Comment: Hello Shelia! I'm Deniz and i am your swap partner for Valentines Day. Your post-card has come and it is amazing. Thanks for the chocolates!! You are a super girl. I love youuuuu!!❤❤❤❤💕💕💕😍😍😍😍😍😍😍💕💕🍫🍫
Wow! Definitely one of the nicest and well put together swaps I have ever received!! I’m going to show it off to a co-worker that also participates in swapbot.🙂 Many thanks and tons of hearts!❤️❤️❤️❤️
Comment: OMGGGG I didn't realize Xmas was in FEB!! You might possibly see a little thank you note in the mail Shelia, because this package is the bestest swap EVAR! For real, bear with me here, cause I'm gonna have to go through a few things lol. The packing/presentation- ugh so sweet. This is mail art! So delightful. I love how you packaged everything inside like you could sell this at friggen Michael's. The stamps- how did you know I've been wanting a set of letter stamps??? The die cuts- gorgeous. Again presentation is 5 star! Teas- my favorite flavors and HARNEY tea omg. I could go on, but just- thank you. It's been colder than the Arctic here and this really warmed my heart. A gazillion hearts.
Response: Hello... you are very welcome and I’m glad you liked everything!!! I didn’t tell you I have “ESP”. lol...😀. I read everyone’s profile and try very hard to send things my partner will like or can use. Enjoy and...stay warm!
Comment: Wow! I was so excited when I received your package. I found so many things I want to use for future swaps and crafting projects. I love how you had everything packaged and labeled. I only wish I could give you more than one heart!!! Thank you so very much! 😊
Comment: Such a beautiful swap! Thank you very much for the delicious teas and the homemade envie! I'm also obsessed with the amazing wrap-job you did on the swap itself! How did you do that??!
Response: Hi Jana...1st...let me say that I always try to send my swap partners fun and interesting packages to open..🤗. In your case...I slipped your items in a clear sleeve and sealed the ends. I addressed one envie and turned the other one so you could see the pattern. I’m glad you liked what I sent...enjoy!🤗
Comment: The tea looks lovely and I'm looking forward to trying these. I enjoyed the Chinese Proverb. We're having a great new year and you're right, it is moving fast. Hope yours is going great as well!
Comment: Thank you for the note card and two tea bags. Your Chinese proverb is lovely. I look forward trying the Earl Grey. I’ve heard there is double bergamot earl grey tea out there and I intend to find some😀
Comment: I had a pretty bad day but, lucky for you, you made me laugh.
Response: It’s only 1-18-19 and you’ve already had a bad day? 🤪Well I hate to tell you this but that’s the last one you get to have this year! So I suggest you keep both eyes open and kick anything that looks like it wants to ruin any future days for you!...thanks for the rating and glad I could shake things up for you today.
Comment: WOW. Just wow! What an incredibly put together, beautiful assortment, with well over the swap requirement's worth of supplies, and so thoughtfully sealed and packaged! You are such a sweetie, and I wish I could give you more hearts! Thank you!!!
Response: Hello...I’m glad you liked what I sent you...enjoy!
Comment: Wow! Wow! WOW! This package was spectacular! Not only the contents, but the presentation, too! I loved it all. Everything was wonderful, you chose such perfect things for me. I wish I could give more hearts for this swap because it was great. Thanks so much!

Comment: Hello! I finally got your swap! Thank you so much for the beautiful tags and you oackaged them so beautifully! And I am always down to help fellow swappers with designs so feel free to private message me if you need any design work :)
I would give you 5 stars if I could for the adorable package! Fun to see and better to open! I love the presentation and will borrow in the future. You really went out of your way and I appreciate it oh, so much! Best I have received in a long time!!!! Made my day.
Comment: Thank you for the swap. Just make sure you are naming them correctly because there are multiple Stuff the Mailbox swaps going at once and I had to guess which one you sent. Thanks for the goodies!
Comment: Thanks love! I received your letter open!! 😲 But I received your journal safely! I do hope you are healthy and safe. Those fires are very worrisome. I have a friend nearby who has been volunteering but he says it just isn't nearly enough. 💙 I wish you all good and positive things now and in the future!
Response: Hey...that’s weird...maybe I forgot to seal but glad you got it. The fires are still pretty crazy and bus there is one out in my neck of the woods...the Rialto area. Take care...
Comment: Wow, thank you Sheila! I love all the goodies you sent. It's funny that you said the host didn't specify if we had to write in the card or not - I'm the host! ha ha
And you are right, I didn't realize that.
Comment: Oh my gosh, what an amazing swap! First off, it was packaged beautifully. Second, I can't believe you made a matching blank card and tags for every envie! And I love the size of them -- I don't have many this size/shape, so they're a perfect addition to my stash. It's obvious you put a lot of effort into your swaps. Thank you sooooooo much!!! A mountain of hearts for you! :)
Response: You are very welcome.
I'm glad you liked them.
And yes...I do put a lot of effort into every swap that I send. My swap partners are very important to me. Enjoy!
Comment: What a cute package!! Thank you so much! Loved the spider!
I’m sorry for the delay in rating. There wasn’t a swap name or swap ID enclosed so I wasn’t sure who you were or what the swap was for.
Comment: I received your cards today-- thank you for including a nice variety of styles. I especially like the lovely illustrated flower notes with the metallic inset and pretty envelopes. Have a nice day.
Comment: I love my socks. Thank you. I need them tonight it was a chilly 72 here in Fl and we were all complaining at a Halloween event our feet were cold...I grew up in CT and how you forget what real cold weather is....thank you again😀
Response: Hey..I’m glad you liked them and that they will come in handy. Enjoy!
Comment: Your book of color is AMAZING! I love the intro letter and explanations on each color choice. Made me want to see you in those colors! I love your design of papers and the tags are fantastic:) Lucky Me for being your partner:) Happy Swaps
Response: Hey...I’m glad you liked. I really enjoyed that swap.
Comment: Wow omg wow omg did I say WOW. You gave this swap 100+%. I have got some good swaps but I have to say this has been the best one and it came just when I needed it most and brighten a dark place I was in. See one of my daughter birthday was 10-17 But my daughter gained her wing on 6-6-14 she would have been 33. I want to THANK YOU FROM MY WHOLE HEART.
Response: Ahhh...I’m glad you liked what I sent you...and also glad that it lifted your spirit...if only for a moment. The swap was fun.
Comment: Omg!!! I can’t even begin to babble. From the die cuts to the stickers... holy. I’m so thankful to have had you as a partner! Obviously bad also cuz I feel that I should live up to that amazing ness for all future swaps! Thank you so much, it was so much fun to open & such a pleasure to be this package’s recipient!
Response: Hello...I’m glad you liked what I sent. I read the profile for every one of my Swap partners and try very hard to send something that they will like and can use. Enjoy!!!
Comment: What a beautiful thing to send. Thank you for the lovely envelope you put together. I lost my Mom to lung cancer so I know how hard cancer is. I will wear the scarf along with my lung cancer one in my show of support. Sending love and hugs your way❤️
Comment: Breast cancer awareness has been an important cause for me (for several decades now)... and it has, unfortunately, afflicted many people I know. Thanks so much for the thoughtful reminder! Go PINK!
Comment: Thank you so much I had already got bad news today and was having a rough day and my mom died from breast cancer and ur gift was amazing really hit home with me and made my day and the stamps hidden inside just made me smile and cry tears of joy thank you so much I wish I could give 100 on the rating and 10000 hearts thanks
Response: You are very welcome...hope things get better for you...I’m wishing brighter days ahead fir you anyway!!!
Comment: What a wonderful idea, also a touching message and beautifully packaged... Thank you. No one in my family has breast cancer, but there has been a scare before. I can only imagine the pain people go through with this disease.
Response: Thank you so much for understanding...and your kind words.
Comment: OMG I want to rate you a 50! These are SO BEAUTIFUL I'm certain you are somehow a pro. And I'll totally use the "oops" happily. In fact, I may use it as an excuse to keep it, and store notepaper or something in it. Thanks so much for the generous supply of envelopes, and all the pretty gold shiny glittery things, as well.
Response: Hello...glad you liked...I “often” do things that are ...shall we say...”not normal” ...lol. I took a chance with these...not your “normal-usual” Halloween cards. Enjoy!
Comment: I love this ATC-the delicate flowers and blingy background. Great job-thanks for sharing. Also thanks for variety of postage stamps on the envelope-it appeals to me as a postage stamp collector!
Comment: Thank You so much for the wonderful envelope of goodies you sent me! It was so nice to receive such a nice swap based on my actual likes! I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile and sending things based on what I like and use most! I love the swap cards you sent, how awesome to have those to fill out! Where did you get them!? I have a silhouette machine, much like your cricut and it is s fun to use. I love all of what you sent. TY so much again! <3 Christine
Comment: What a lovely package you sent me! Couldn't ask for a more profile specific offering, right down to the ribbon tying everything together. I love the windmills, thank you, and the peacocks, darling. It was beautiful how you put everything in its own sealed bags. How did you do that? Thank you so much for making a special swap just for me!
Response: Hello... I’m glad you like the things that I sent. I really do read every profile and try “very” hard to send things that my Partner has listed. Quite often I get partners where
after reading their profile I
have to scratch my head and say...what do I do here!!!... lol
Comment: thank you for a great card, i love your text.), i only visited Maine in the US and i love the countryside. We had very hot summer since the spring showed for a bit and straight it was hot until now, it is very dry and we are afraid of fires,, hope your country has put those under control
Comment: Oh Shelia, you sure made it feel like Christmas. Am crazy over all the diecuts just lovely and the pretty note paper, handmade envelope, my notecards with my name on it, YIPPEE never had that before. Many thanks everything, I truly love everything you sent and can't wait to use it. You are so kind. Wishing you a great day today, AnnaL.
Comment: What an incredibly thoughtful package! The mushrooms were the first thing I saw and they are adorable. And then everything inside. The anchors are great! I love everything. This was so kind of you. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the happy mail, including the hand-written note (your poor hand). I like it all but I especially love that orange with gold foil paper (wow!) and those die-cuts are precious. I'm very happy with my package. Hearts for you!!
Comment: Sweet darling Sheila, oh my! I never thought I'd be receiving such a big package, you really didn't need to, but I was blown away with this swap. Thank you! I loved the wonderful tea selection you sent me, I can't wait to try these delicious teas. Some I've tried before, but most I haven't and I know I'll love them (thanks for sending some for my mom too!). You know, the lash & brow wand came at the perfect time because last week I had the classic issue of wanting to fix my lashes after using mascara and ending up using too much of it and messing everything up lol, so this product is exactly what I needed. Thanks for choosing this for me, I love it and I'm always happy to get cruelty free goodies, yay! The notecards are gorgeous and I really enjoyed reading your letter, thanks for taking me out shopping with you, and thanks for such a nice and thoughtful swap, this really made my day!
Response: Hello! I’m glad you liked everything! I see that it really does take a long time for mail to get there. I’m glad ever was as sent it. Enjoy...🤗
Comment: Hi Shelia, WOW, I don't know what to say...I just LOVE all the goody diecuts you enclosed in this beautiful card. I have a lot of die cuts but none of the ones you enclosed so they are all new to me and I will use them for sure! Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you. I'm sorry about the fires. In the past we have had some wild fires near here. The prospect is terrifying. Lightning and intentional arson were responsible combined with very dry weather. There are woods across the street and on one side of my home. Be safe.
Comment: Thank you for the nice card. Please remember to put the swap on the card. I searched through all of my different swap groups before I found what the card was for. I like the card. Did not have this one.
Response: Hello...that's odd. I usually write it “somewhere” ...around the edge...etc. sorry snout that but head you hit it and like. Shelia...1koolkrafter.
Comment: Thank you so much for the 50 useless facts! I had a good time giggling at them. I also appreciate your little pouch of "useless goodies" and I can definitely find a use for them, especially the teeny tiny washi sample and the 1 cent stamp! You made my day, thank you! ♥
Response: Hello... I’m glad you enjoyed my list and also the “useless” goodies that I included...lol! This was a fun swap...🙂. Have a great week...😎
Comment: I love the postcard that you sent. It is definitely a favorite. I love the stamps too. I could handle going that often. We went 8 years ago and planned then to go back in 10. Thank you so much and thanks for joining!
Comment: Oh my!! This was not a flat envie, it was fat with oodles of blue treats! You packaged everything in such a lovely manner, I felt like it was my birthday as I opened each set of goodies. Every possible category, from die cuts to bling to cards, ribbons, washi, papers and more, more more!!! All just gorgeous and they will be such fun to use in my art and journals and scrapbooking! Just love your classy swap card and personal Goodies sticker! Such an impressive swap and I send you a very heartfelt thank you.100 hearts if I could (in shades of blue of course)
Response: Hello...I’m glad you liked and can use the items....enjoy!
Comment: This a wonderful ATC-can't believe it's your first! I'm always grateful to get someones first!
It's so festive and contains so many little details and things about the 4th-that's rough that you lost your mom on her birthday-so many good memories-I'm sure! It's been 6 years since my mom passed away and I know what you mean about the loss! Thanks for the extra greeting card for me to use and just love the note card and envelope you sent this swap in-thanks for sharing!
Comment: Shelia, what can I say? I received your package and was positively stunned! I feel so spoiled by all of the goodies you gifted me! You went above and waaaaay beyond and for that, thank you. I appreciate everything and I especially appreciate that you picked out things based on my profile interests. Wrapping everything was an adorable touch and made the experience all the more special! Seriously, you rock and if I could give you more hearts, I would. :)
Response: Hello...I’m glad you eceived and like what I sent you. I do read “every” profile of my swap partners and do my very best to select and send something that I hope partner will like and can use. It makes me happy when I can do that. Thanks for the rating... have a great week...🤗
Comment: I absolutely love everything!!! The butterfly bag is beautiful!! Thank you so much for resending. I am sorry that the other package got lost especially since you took so much time to pick things for it and spent so much money. I am grateful for your kindness and the fact that you took the time to pick things that I like, especially since you did it twice. Thank you! I wish I could give you extra hearts!! I’m so excited to make these cookies too 😁
Response: Hello... I’m glad you got the resend package. I tried to send the same things that were in the original package but did not have duplicates of everything. I usually take pictures of the things that I send my partners. I’m glad I did on this case. Again...I made the mistake of repacking everything in a different shape box...and believe I got the address labels mixed up in the process as I had other packaged I was putting together. The cookies were on sale at the grocery store and since I was sending a flat rate box...I said ....why not fill...er... up,,,lol...😜
Comment: Oh my, what a WONDERFUL handmade pink package you put together for me. It was pretty right from the start, from the mailing envelope to the pink folder housing all the handmade tags (in all shapes & sizes) and the die cuts and the cutest teeny tiny decorative envelopes with the stamped banner inserts. It's all very inspiring and I will have fun using it all. Thank you again for making my day and my week. It was a very nicely thought out and put together swap!! :)
Response: Hello-I’m glad you liked whst I send you. Enjoy! 🤗
Comment: Beautiful postcard. Thank you. I was out in your area twice this last weekend. My daughter and son in law live in Riverside so went out to see them and help them move.
Response: Hello...moving is a drag...lol!!!🙂 I hope you did not wear yourself out. I’m in Eastvale...a relatively new city still. I’m right off the -15- fwy...even distance between the -60- and -91- fwy.
Comment: 7/2/2018--Thank you ever so much for such an amazing envelope full of handmade envies. I love how you put in a clear bag. Thank you for putting a lot of thought into this swap for me...LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! Happy swapping.
Response: Hello...I’m glad you liked the envies I made for you..enjoy...have a great week and safe and happy 4th!🤗
Comment: Wow! Sheila, what a wonderful package you sent! So many beautiful things! The beach stickers are perfect for some projects I'm working on, and I love the bird die-cut and the dragonflies! The little bees - your last 3 - are keepers because they are so tiny and cute! And I was overwhelmed with getting a whole packet of such nice paper! So generous of you! Thank you so much for making my day with this great swap!!!
Response: Hello...I’m glad you liked everything...enjoy!
6-25-18...hello again Brooke. I’m glad you received the resend package. Enjoy.
Hello...I was not aware that you did not receive my package to you for this swap. I wish you had contacted me first to let me know so we could work it out “before” you gave me a -1- rating! I sent you an email several days ago when I first say the -1- rating. Please respond back to me so we can get this cleared up. Thanks!!!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful package. I had so much fun opening it and finding a beautiful pink journal and all of the paper goodies. And to top it all off, a package of cookie mix. That is a fun idea and I agree, when sending priority, you want to get in as much as you can. Again, thanks so much. I hope you have a blessed day!
