Comment: WOW - I feel so blessed. Thank you so much for such thoughtful steps you took in sending me this swap. I love that you contacted the digital suppliers and had them send to me. Most people would have had it sent to themselves and then forwarded it, but I feel a little guilty about that. It was very thoughtful and a bit of effort on your part. Thank you
Response: Hey, you're most welcome! And no need to feel guilty! It was my pleasure! ❤️
Comment: Your lovely yellow mail art envelope with the awesome mushroom stamps arrived today! Thank you for the lovely planner goodies! I cannot wait to go through them all and start decorating for next week! xx Gabi
Comment: OMG, thanks for your really big filled envelope. I really like everything you have sent. We have indeed similar tastes & interests. I was a bit unhappy about some damaged things, like dented card, ripped envelope and a napkin ripped because of to much use of glue. But you have sent me so much I don't mind and rate you a 5 because the rest is wonderful!
Comment: Oh, Avi, I was so excited to receive your wonderful collection of goodies...my first package from India! I’m so looking forward to adding the goodies to a journal. Love the stamps and the envelope collage. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the sweet package. The way you decorated it with the cats and the postage stamps is adorable, and makes me smile. :) I look forward to using the fun treats you sent in my crafting and happy mail. Have a nice day!
Comment: Amazing goodness - thank-you. Yes, your country really stimulated my senses, moreso than most other places. I cannot really choose favorited but I loved Ranthambore and the Golden Temple in Amritsar. I did specifically go to Varanasi because of your postcard and am really glad to have stayed in a hotel right on the ghats - Varanasi blew my mind in many ways, could people watch and listen to Hindu chanting all day. I hope the air quality has eased up a bit for you recently:-)
Response: So glad that you enjoyed your trip to India! Coincidentally even I visited Golden temple recently!! It's beautiful! Air quality is still not so great! :(( thank you for the great rating ❤️
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely things you sent me! I love the cooking book you chose. I cannot wait to try some receipes! Also the scarf is beautiful and so soft and the hot chocolate looks delicious! <3
Comment: Oh my gosh... I am so sorry. I thought for sure that I had rated you for this.. I LOVE the papers you sent. They are so beautiful! I will have to find something special to use them for.. Again, I apologize.. I could have sworn that I had rated. Please forgive.. Thank you so much! Extra Hearts to you!
Comment: Loved the package in its entirety, especially the Taj Mahal magnet which is on my fridge. As well, I am still planning some free time for my trip to India and had contemplated Varanasi - because I believe in signs and you sent a picture of Varanasi, my mind is made up. Going to that beautiful city. ❤️
Response: Wow!! That is totally a sign!! I believe too! All the best for your trip...thank you for the great rating!

Comment: Thank you for your lovely package! I haven't actually seen that movie, and the book looks very interesting. Also the bath gel smells great, although it had sadly leaked a little inside the package (not damaged the book, though, luckily!) - well, now all of it smells great! :D Thank you :)

Thank you for your thoughtfulness :)
Response: Glad you enjoyed your package! Thank you for the great rating!
Comment: I wish I could give you a lot of hearts: nice stamps on the envelope, very nice elephant and butterfly stationary and the sewing miniatures are marvelous cute, thank you very much. I almost forgot the beautiful lace. So much, so generous.

Comment: Thank you so much for the items that you so thoughtfully chose! I really like the orange ink pad- I don't have that color yet and will put it to much use. Thanks for the lovely paper, tape, ephemera and smiley pin(it made my day!). Thanks for everything, Happy Swapping! Jen ("mydnite")
Response: You're most welcome! And thanks for the great rating! 😊
Comment: Thanks for a really great package. The bookmark is lovely, the notecards are so nice, especially the handmade fall one, and the assortments of PC's and teas are also wonderful. The one of the Taj Mahal and the Lotus Temple are so beautiful, I am sure I will not be sending those away! And the extra ATC's are also such a nice extra. I will enjoy everything, and I do thank you for the thought you put into the whole package. I hope we swap again sometime!
Response: So glad you liked the package....you're very welcome and thank you for such a great rating :)
Comment: Thank you for such a thoughful variety of items. I thought the newspaper page with some English, as well as Hindi, was very interesting. I loved everything you sent and feel I know more about your beautiful country now.
Response: So glad that you liked the stuff., I had fun putting it together...thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the excellent package- like getting four in one- India Stamps, gorgeous handmade note cards, the inspiration card they were wrapped on, and the cool Washi- they really are fantastic. I am sending you a private message about the note cards.
Response: Most welcome Bonnie! Thank you so much for the great rating and heart! 😊
Comment: I love everything you've sent me. I really do. The only reason I haven't given you a heart is becuase this was meant to be a wrapped Christmas present. I wanted to save it till Christmas. However, I'd like everyone to know that you are a reliable and thoughtful swapper. The had definitely read my profile. I love the India lapel pin for my World map :) Thank you.
Response: Oops! I'm sorry about that! Totally missed that! I don't know how! I'm glad you liked the stuff! :)
Comment: So I guess the drama will just end with this rating. When I first sent you the message ,I was trying to be nice and to tell you that I thought your mail did not meet the swap requirement. I was even worried that my message would upset you. All I wanted from you was a simple, sincere apology, I did not even need you to resend anything. But you just made all the excuses and tried to make me be solely responsible for the swap problem (which is ridiculous) by saying/ implying that  my 'contradicting' profile confused you (if that's the case, why can't you just message me and ask me to clarify it);  I was greedy since you cannot find any flat items on my wishlist (seriously? A simple, decorated written postcard is already good enough to earn you a heart);  I was ungrateful as you already gave me extras (you just sent me 2 smaller than average sticker sheets and a blank postcard, and I explicitly wrote in my profile that I did not want any stickers and blank postcard currently, not to mention they had already been ruined by the smell of the damaged ginger tea tag that you sent). So I decide to give my first 3 rating in swap bot, not just because I think you failed to meet the swap requirement, but mainly because of your attitude. I know that you are going to deny all these, but the fact is that you were actually late sending the swap and you just did not inform me that. When I mentioned this in the first message, you did not apologize for/ explain/ say anything about the late issue. So this is a solid 3 rating.
Response: I would just like to say that I have never implied that you're being greedy and I have all the messages between us as proof! i have tried to get in touch , Also resent but gotten no response! 🙁
Comment: Hi Avi! Today I received your envelope of surprises, -thank you so much! The magnet is already up on display on my fridge and I promise to take good care of it:-) Also really awesome (and creative!) with the baking cups and coins. I love all of it!
Thank you so much for making my day brighter!
Response: You're welcome elisabeth...glad you like it! :)
Comment: Thank you for this package, it put a large smile on my face. I adore the origami paper you put in, extra thanks for that!
The paper of the enveloppe was thorn but the plastic inside was still intact, nothing is missing. Good choice to use a bubble wrapper.
Response: Glad you liked the stuff, you're mist welcome!

Response: Glad you liked them! Had sent you tea and some coins, I guess that was taken out and then retaped! :( thank you for the heart!

Comment: Hi Aparna. Thank you for a wonderful valentines pocket letter. It is so pretty and I love the card! ❤️ I know what you mean about finding time for other interests. I love to draw but there keep coming pocket letters in the way! ;)
Thank you for swapping with me!
Comment: Aparna is a thorough swapper and I am saying this because she was so quick to turn a not so great experience into a thrilling one. She has been very patient with me and at the same time very eager to make sure that I was very happy with this swap. Thankyou so very much for he most lovely gift for my little daughter. She has been playing with the lovely toy and we are very happy with it.
Comment: Hi Aparna. Thank you for a lovely pocket letter! 💗Loved the paper doilies. Will be using the diecuts in my next PL. Beautiful goodies! Hope to swap with you again in the new year! Thank you! Hugs, Ann
Response: You're welcome Ann, glad you liked it...we will definitely swap in 2016!
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATCs and the extras. I've always been interested in India. I love Hindi films and the music from them. I'm especially fond of Tusshar Kapoor in recent films and Rekha is my favorite in older movies.
Response: Wow...so good to know that our film industry has such a wide reach! :) generally one just hears of Amitabh or Shahrukh being popular over seas! You're most welcome...thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Hi Aparna. Thank you so much for this wonderful pocket letter! It is so pretty. The middle pocket is my favorite, the green owl punch is so beautiful! ♥
And thank you, thank you, thank you for the newspaper. I can't wait to use it, the text is so beautiful! It was a pleasure to swap with you again. ♥
Response: Hi Ann, glad you liked it! I really enjoyed making it...you're most welcome...the newspaper was nothing, glad I could send you something local....can't wait to receive your PL! And thanks for the heart....:). I love the thank you rose! How did you put it there?
Comment: Superb postcards and I loved the note card!! It is so special. Thanks for the extra note card and tea. Am sure you will have loads of fun here, just like I do! Take care and hope our paths will cross again! Thanks again for everything!
Response: Glad you liked them...thanks for the heart! :)
Comment: I received this swap today and I am disappointed. I am rating a 5 because you gave this craft a try and sent tea, but the pocket fell apart in the mail and tape was everywhere. Please spend more time and care on future craft swaps! The swap asked for an hour of your time to be spent on this craft and what I received does not represent this. You must construct items with quality glue or tape for them to hold up when traveling overseas. Thanks for the tea.
Response: So sorry to hear that it wasn't intact when you received it! I really did my best but you're right about the glue part as I just had the DST and I guess that wasn't the right tape....believe me I did do my best. Thanks for the rating, Holly.
Comment: Hi Aparna. Thank you so much for this beautiful pocket letter. It is the prettiest I have gotten! I love the way you cut the edge of the papers, which are so pretty with the little flowers. The jars with butterflies are so lovely and all the butterflies are just beautiful! Thank you for all the butterfly punchies, I'll be using some in my next PL! I love the little tag with you name. That is an awesome idea, which I'll will totally steal and use in my future PL. Thank you for a great swap! (And that was just crazy quick mail all the way from India!!) Lot's of hearts to you!
Response: Hi Ann
That was quick! So glad you liked your letter! I had fun making It....love butterflies! Let's do another swap soon...aparna.
Comment: I love my new bird things!! The little notebook was super cute and I love the clip!! I hope to see you in more swaps! (This bird swap was my first one too- and now I'm hooked- getting international mail is too much fun!) I also love your note card- the design was super pretty :)
Response: Hi melanie,
Glad you liked it! Thanks for the heart...:)
