Comment: It breaks my heart to leave this rating for a member of the Crafting Queens group, but you have chosen not to reply to my messages, profile comment, or e-mails from the swap host. I gave you the benefit of a doubt when I messaged you, and hoped that maybe our swap was "lost in the mail". I never thought you flaked, until you chose NOT to respond to my correspondence. I will happily revise this rating when I receive your swap.
Comment: Thankyou for the postcard and lovely Halloween card too. I've never had a Halloween card before I love it!!
I love your postcard and the name you've given her, their both up on my mantelpiece now love them.
Comment: Your tote package arrived today and OMG - wish I could give you a few hearts!! The tote is gorgeous - I will be only Aussie with one. The extras were lovely too, especially the beautiful lace that will take pride of place on an outfit for grand-daughter, many, many thanks:-))
Comment: You were so sweet to resend, and the package was wonderful! I absolutely love Liza; she's very talented, and so are you. Thank you for all the extra goodies, too; those pumpkins seed are yummy. Thank you! Kathy
Comment: Thank you for the poems and lollies, I have already eaten one as I was reading 2 of the 3. Sorry I could not read the 3rd as all your lovely cutting had cut away some of the words. Never mind I will look for it on Poem Hunter :-)
Later - Yes I found it on Poem Hunter, great poem and I will now read more of Marge Piercy's poems as she is new to me :-)
Response: Oh, oops! I'm sorry about that. I didn't notice that some of it got cut off. I'm glad you liked everything anyway though! Thanks for the rating too!
Comment: Amazing package, Darian! How lucky was I to be your swap recipient. Gel pens, holographic pencils, push pens, colored paper clips, staples, stapler, funny, FUNNY magnet (!), stationery, note cards, GORGEOUS letter paper and envelopes, teeny journal, SO MUCH COOL STUFF!!!! Thank you, Darian!
Response: You're very welcome, I think I'm a little addicted to stationery items myself, so it was easy to shop for! :D Oh, and thanks for the rating too!
Comment: :0) Thank you for the sweet note and the clapping rhymes! Down by the Bay used to be one of my faves as a kid too! <3 Ainslie PS...The tea was a kind (and timely) gesture as all three of us are battling a summer cold! It will be put to use before bed tonight!
Response: Sorry to hear about the cold, I went through that in June because of our weird weather here. Hope you all feel better soon, enjoy the tea!
Comment: Wow what I lovely parcel. The book looks really interesting, I shall definately be giving that a read. I love the socks, so me! You have exceeded the swap requirements. I truly love everything many thanks x
Response: Purple is my all time favorite color so I think I went a little nuts on this one. LoL! I'm just glad you liked and hope you enjoy the book and goodies. :)
Comment: great package. he approves. thanks. loved how you drew on the envie.
Response: lol You're very welcome, I like to draw generally and I usually put something on the outside of the package so I remember what is in each one. It seemed a little...er...indiscreet to write it, I figured the bed would give me enough of a hint. :D
Comment: Darian, finally a tote I like and will keep. Even that vintagy tag is going in my stash. And what a lovely box.You didn't know I'm a box collector. Wish I could give many hearts. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Bless your heart. Coleen in Ukraine
Response: Glad you liked it! I have one of the same type here at home too because I liked it so much. :) The box came to be that I have the bad habit of falling in love with all kinds of little boxes or silk drawstring bags that I have no use for. Consequently I don't know what to do with them. I hope you'll enjoy it! :)
Comment: Thanks for the great stationery and the awesome envelope! (I love the Walrus and the Carpenter!) I agree, it is getting hard to find nice stationery these days, but the ones you sent are hardly dull! The notecards are nice too, thank you!
Response: I remember you said you liked fairytales and such so that's what immediately came to mind. I'm so glad you liked it. :D Thanks for the rating too!
Comment: Darian what great timing! I was on the next to the last page of the book I was currently reading, and wondering what I would read next. Also, the tea bags! I do enjoy my tea, and was pleasantly surprised that you thought to enclose some. Your truly a person who has great perception. Thanks so much. Nancy
Response: To me a good book and a good drink are a great pair so I like to throw in tea, or cocoa or some little thing like that. I'm glad you liked it! :D Thanks much for the rating and I hope you enjoy the story.
Comment: A big thank you for the beautiful tote. The colors really 'pop' against the black background. A special thanks for the blank pcs. Each one is so pretty. Another thank you for the individually wrapped candy treats, what an extra surprise when they tumbled out of the package. Many, many infinate hearts.
Response: I was hoping you'd like it, wasn't sure. :) Glad it got there okay. Please enjoy, and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Darian thank you so much for the wonderful ATC, I loved it. I also love the 1920's Jazz/Roaring 20's era. Thank you also so much for the extras and the oil essences. You are doing great with the ATC's.
Response: You're very welcome, I know the lady who makes those oils and her little company is just wonderful. I wear her perfume all the time. So glad you liked everything and thank you for the compliment. :)
Comment: What a lovely package you sent me! Thank you so much for it all!!!! I love the cookie cutters and think you are right with the state of Utah, but the other looks like a dolphin on top of a wave. My pups are sure to love the dog biscuit one ! Thank you for the candy too. All was a delight to receive. Thank you again.
Response: You're welcome I hope you enjoy using your new odd cutters. :D You can make cookies and take people's guesses on what the heck it is.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your nightmare. I love the ones where you can remember everything and its so vivid that you wake up and you are confused as to where you are, but you're really back in your own bed, safe and sound. I love the candy and the tea you sent. Thank you so much! Happy Swapping!
Response: Yeah, glad it got there in one piece! I agree, even when it's a nightmare the feeling of being transported so completely is kinda neat. :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the books! I love Brave Be World, and can't wait to read Flatland. It looks great! Oh My gosh, my husband is so in love with the coffee carmels you sent, I've barely gotten to have anything! thanks so much!
Response: So glad you liked it !!! :D They're two of my favorites, but that list is a little long to be honest. ;P I buy those coffee candies because they're made with real coffee, instead of artificial flavor, and they're slightly caffeinated. Enjoy!
Comment: Thankyou for the beautiful ATC's .To say youve not been doing very many they were stunning have added to my collection folder!Thankyou for the beautiful letter yeah i do normally get "Hey Jude"!so im used to it and find funny at least im part famous...lol.Hope to see you join in with many more swaps im hosting.

Response: When I started on swap-bot it was the first time I'd ever heard of A.T.Cs but I've always liked to draw and paint. :) I'm so glad you liked them and thank you!
Comment: Oh my HAT Darian, I soooo enjoyed your swap!, especially all the hearts!! how did u know i love kitkat and the notebook and crochet flowers were the cherry on the cake for me. I thank you so much, it brightened up my day! Mwoah!

Comment: Thanks a lot for a wonderful package! I really enjoy it! And a book! It will be a little challenge for me to read it in English (I don't read in foreing language usually), but I'll accept this challenge and looking forward to start :) Thank you!
Response: Oh I'm sorry hun, everything I read on here from you sounds so good I assumed you were completely fluent. :( Well I hope it ends up being a fun challenge. :D Take care!
Comment: Hi Darian,
I got your wonderful package this morning just before I left for work. What a wonderful way to start my week, thank you so much for the beautifully deocrated package and the lovely books. I would indeed be happy to swap some books with you, do you like Christine Feehan or Nora Roberts? let me know and I can send you an email to let you know what I have that I can send you. Thanks again for the lovely surprise and also that beautiful piece of ribbon, I was running it through my fingers this morning thinking it would look lovely as a trimming on a bag that I am going to make. Hugs Helen
Response: :D I really liked that ribbon too but didn't know what to do with it so I had to share! Glad you liked your envie! :D
Comment: Thanks for the really interesting mail art. I never would of catoragized the books I like as "fantasy fiction" I would of said I they are more "realistic fantasy fiction"-He! He! Also thanks for the chocolate. I didn't taste it yet because it needed to rest in the fridge awhile. I like warm weather but it's a killer on chocolate. Thanks for everything else too! - ( : CHEERS! : )
Response: You're welcome, I just couldn't decide what kinds of things to send so you got a variety. Glad you liked it. :) I think I got that impression from the fact that you like Harry Potter, but I think I know what you mean.
