Comment: Thank you. One of the reasons I join Christmas card swaps Is to see all the different cards out there and this one is different, cute, I like it. Last year I got a lot of duplicates so this year I only joined a few swaps and so far they’re all different. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hi Mindy! I got the teas. It won't matter if there are a few duplicate teas. I don't think anyone can have 25 boxes of different tea bags in their cupboard at a time! They look beautiful up on the door next to the others you wrapped. Thank you!
Comment: Hi Mindy... I got the teas today :-) Thank you so much for sending. How do you get them so flat??? :-) :-) The envie is very pretty... thanks again. Will be hard to wait until Dec. to start drinking them!!
Response: Thanks for the rating, I get the tea flat by gently shaking the tea inside the tea bag until it's pretty even inside. I also have a piece of cardboard I cut a 1/4" slit in so I can test the envelope, make sure it fits.
Comment: Thank you very much for the wonderful washi! I love it! Especially the babushka dolls. I even managed to save two washi strips from the envelope. Your card was thoughtfully done. Happy Swapping 💕
Comment: Thanks for all the beautiful yellow items! They definitely brightened a gloomy day. My DH loved the "sparkly envie." All the items you sent will be put to good use! Thanks so much for this wonderful swap! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Received my stocking stuffer for Nov/Dec and am excited. It is so nicely wrapped. I will reluctantly wait [I hope] and put it in my Christmas Stocking. It is calling me to open it but I am resisting.
Comment: thanks Mindy for making me smile. def cant wait to try those teas tomorrow and know they will def make Micah smile. we loved the envelope with the owls and teas and stickers! thanks for the smile! :) have a good day!
Comment: Thanks for the card - I was actually confused for a minute when trying to figure out how to open it. Obviously it is too early in the morning for me to function. But it was so cute! Thanks for the tea too - I haven't seen that one before! :)
Thank you for the tea, quote, and card. I love the quote and thinking of using it at my ladies Christmas party at church. Thank you for participating in this swap as well! Have a great fall! -Buffy
Comment: Thank You Mindy! the suspense grows with everyone of these swaps I get, this is my first year participating. I don't usually look forward to the holidays but this year will be different with my growing stocking of swaps.
Love and Light,
Comment: Hello Mindy,
Thank you for the beautiful job you did in the First Box of this Collab Coloring #31. You used markers and they worked well.I will get my part done and get it done. Great Postcard!!!
Thank you for sending a beautiful butterfly postcard to color for this Collab. Coloring PC #27. You did a great job coloring. I love the background color. . Thank you also for the extra postcard you sent along with the colored postcard. It is one like I have sent before in other swaps.
Comment: Dec,25, 2018 What a Cute Idea, Never have seen Screen Door Saver Bug before. Love it.. Merry Christmas!!!
Thank you the package arrived yesterday 2/20/2018...I will wait till Dec. to open..! !
Comment: Please, please can I open my card now...wink, wink! Thanks for the eggnog tea, I can't wait to try it but I am going to wait until nighttime when all the Christmas lights are at their prettiest. Thank you.
Comment: Hi Mindy! I received your goodies today, thank you so much! What a perfect tea selection to hang onto fall, and I loved the washi - I don't have any of these, so it was a huge treat! I hear you - I'm not ready for Christmas yet, and with you working in the midst of retail...wow. I TOTALLY get it. lol Thank you again for joining my swap.
Comment: Wow! Thanks so much for all the tea & the added extra! These flavours look amazing and I canâ€™t wait to try them. Such unique ones Iâ€™ve never seen before. Iâ€™m especially excited about the pumpkin spice - I know many people talk about this flavour but Iâ€™ve never tried it before. ðŸ˜ŠðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thanks for the Ernie PC! I love the stripey bunny stamped image. Also, I used to live in Kane County! The first Lee Wards I ever heard of was in Elgin. I guess it's a flea market or restore or Michaels now. I lived in St. Charles. The groceries are different here but back there we had Jewel Osco, Dominics, Eagle, Aldi's. The little Blue Goose, didn't have the Meijer in the 90's when I was there. I miss some things about the area but not the weather! The Kane County Flea Market was the best!â™¥
Comment: Omg!!! Thank you so much for the awesome envies!! They are so nice & I love the paper you chose. I especially like the Spider-Man, bridge & steampunk ones. I am not sure I'll be able to part with them. Lol thank you for such a thoughtful swap!! You made my day. :-)
Comment: Thank you for the tea! I think I'll like all the flavours, and that you added your personal favourite. I would've liked a bit more variety though, as everything is black tea. But I'm still happy!
Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous tea you sent me and for reading my profile :) I drink the same tea all year round so I'm very happy that you sent me some of my favourites. I also loved your beautiful envelope!
Comment: These are a few of my favourites things. Daa La da.....Love the yoga card! Love the postcard! And even your washi covered swap card. So neat! Pretty stickers and the double sided envie! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Washi Tape Swap Cards! I love that wide pink washi with the brown and green. So pretty! I hope the originals found a good home. It's very irritating that they didn't find MY home!
Comment: Hi Mindy! Thank you so much for the great assortment of teas and for including extra! I very much so look forward to drinking these! I am really curious, admittedly, about how this Numi Turmeric Tea will taste! Thanks again!
Comment: Thanks for the fabulous tape samples. In case you are wondering why I am editing this, I originally rated you for the samples I received from someone else for another WOW swap.... lol. I like the one with the red flowers!
Comment: What a great looking, inspirational envelope! The postcards in side were fantastic! I went to the Ca' d'Zan, the Ringling Mansion, with my grandmother as a kid. Seeing it on the postcard brought back fun memories. That house is crazy and well worth a visit! Thanks for sending wonderful mail!!!!
Comment: thank you for the lovely card and tea bags and gift also i am looking forward to have the egg nog tea and others we never have any christmas tea and can't wait to swap with you in the new year
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard! :) And thanks for the lovely animal stamps! Wow, so much snow sounds nice...last winter we had almost none...although I rather prefer once lots of snow and then "spring warm again" for the rest of the winter :D Snow and the cold can get annoying, at least for me, when it stays almost the whole winter. Merry Christmas to you! :)
Comment: Wow! The card you made is so beautiful. I love the technic you used on the background. I never would have thought to heat emboss a dry embossed image. The extra was awesome too! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the perfect postcards. I love vintage monsters so the Creature from the Black Lagoon is sooo perfect. Love the zombie one which will hold me over until the Walking Dead returns! Hugs, Mona
Comment: Thank you for such a wonderful swap! I love love love the envelope you sent it in and all the extras are so perfect! Thank you for taking all the extra effort to personalize this swap for me! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the thoughtful caffiene free teas! I enjoyed pulling the tea bags out of the envelope, it was like a little tea quilt, a blanket of happiness! I can't wait to try them all, I didn't know red velvet could be a tea flavor, now I'm extremely curious.
Comment: The stamp & Scrap expo was here in Atlanta last month. I have been one time but I spent way too much money so I try to not go unless I have cash savings to take with me LOL. Hope you found lots of goodies.
Comment: I'm sorry it took me so long to rate you! I've been trying for days! My Internet went out the day I received these pretty envelopes, and swap-bot was not liking my cell phone. I just couldn't get it to work! Finally my Internet is working again! Thanks so much for the envelopes!
Comment: Where do I begin?? The envelope is gorgeous, the theme perfect I love flowers and gardening. The seeds, PCs, and the stickers are wonderful so vey generous of you. I had a horrible week and this truly was HAPPY mail. Thank you so much!
Comment: Oops! I put my other partner's rating in your profile! So ignore the first one. Your teas came today and I really like the assortment -- I am especially interested in the turmeric, can't wait to taste it. Like your Swap-Bot name, too -- my younger daughter used to pretend she was a frog and called herself Foogy! Happy swapping!
Comment: I love the illustrated postcard from Ocean City, NJ! I'm so glad you had a wonderful vacation there. I think the Illinois seagulls may be coming from Lake Michigan....? I was born in Rockford but left many years ago :D
Comment: Hi Mindy. I found your lovely letter in my mailbox today, I love all the stamps! I am not a collector either, but find them interesting and it just looks pretty with a bunch of stamps! Thank you for reading my profile and sending me those awesome die cuts and pretty journaling cards. And I love the babushka washi! Thank you!
Comment: Loved your washi card & tapes; you didn't tell me about your washi collection, but I hear you about crazy weather patterns all over the USA & abroad, lately! :)
Response: I realized I forgot to mention my collection after I sealed the envelope. Right now I have 56 open working rolls of washi, 45 still unopened and 2 sandwich bags with samples from swaps. They are currently stored in photo boxes. And I still think my collection is small.
Comment: Yay! Guess what finally showed up?! Tomb of Terror! Love the postcard! I love those types as well! The PC took a little bit of a beating but it made it! Thank you!
EDIT: And guess what showed up today? The day after your original PC arrived, your resend arrived! Guess it didn't take the scenic route! Thank you for the resend! I really enjoy these pcs!
Comment: Love the Envies! Thank you so much! I love making, and receiving, handmade envies! The different papers are so fun! And they make mail that much more special! Thanks for joining my swap! It made me laugh that you got me for both the international and USA versions! I'm glad you had so many different red papers!!!
Response: I'm so happy you like them! I too laughed when I saw your name on both swaps. It was a lot of fun making all of them for you and I never realized just how much scrapbook paper I actually have until I was on the search for red.
Comment: Thousend times thank you !!!!!! This I really LOVED!!!! Okey ... patience is not my little thing so I opened it ..... an what a big happy day ..... guess this will keep me happy a long time now :) Loved the stickers... so many different ones ... and saving the tea for a colder day than today .....
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! I had a great time putting everything together for you.
Comment: Hi Mindy, thank you for the cute envelopes; I'm so impressed that you lined them The little owl peeking out of the "wooden"barn is adorable and my cousin loves giraffes so I'll be sending her a letter using that one. Thanks for joining my swap!
Comment: Hi Mindy, got your package today - what a lovely cheerful envelope! It's inspired me to step up my envie decorating game. :D I've never had any Tazo tea before but I've heard lots of great things about it and the green tea is a variety I can't get locally here so I'm very excited to try them all! Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you Mindy, your postcard arrived and your sister did lovely work, and so glossy too! The colours are beautiful. I had to make mine to send off too. The lilacs in your garden would look stunning right now, lucky you. Yes it is a shame they don't last longer. Cheers ðŸ˜Šâ™¥ï¸
Comment: Thank you very much for the fun and lovely envelope with many wonderful stamps and fantastic goodies! :D I love the slim and wide washi tape samples, the sticker sheet is awesome, so does everything else which was clearly picked based on my wishlist â™¥ This is a happy mail indeed! ;)
Comment: Love the envelope you hand-made. Very nice - and - those old stamps - Wow! Thank you for those, too - I will be re-using them for my paper crafting. Love the postcards you sent! Thank you so much for those, and, for a wonderful swap. Happy day to you.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful leonine envelope, kind message on colorful note paper, and great picks -- I have never seen that Incredibles card (I will have to hang it on my mood board :D), dancing Shiva and Ganesh (reminds me of when I used to practice yoga more often in school), beautiful flowers, and Cartagena (reminds me of learning Cunegonde in Candide :) Hope you are having a good weekend and that you see some sunshine soon!
Comment: Lovely Envies!!! Thank you so much! I love them all, but the one made from the calendar is my favorite! Thankbyiu so much for such such a pretty selection! And thanks for all the awesome orange washi tapes! I do love orange!!!
Comment: Thank you so much!! All the cards are very nice and I will definitely be able to use them all! Also, the envie was adorable!! I was so excited when I saw it. I love the cool pattern on the envelope and all the stamps are really cool!! I would give you two hearts if I could! Thanks so much!! :)
Comment: Hello Mindy, thank you for your sending. That was really a happy mail! I had so much fun exploring it and I love everything you've picked for me. Today I saw a bunch of crocuses blooming on the side of the road. Good luck for your garden!
Comment: Hello Mindy,
Thank you so much for the Pencil Box you created for me. It was apparent that you really enjoyed putting this Pencil Box together. You gave a beautiful package of trims, a great package of stickers, and a great collection of washi tape. All the rest of the stuff you gave me is wonderful too. I will happily use all the materials you gave me. I would love to swap with you again. Where did you get the bags that held the stickers?
Response: I'm so happy you liked everything. I'd be happy to swap with you as well. The bags I used are actually sleeves for baseball cards and I got them off of EBay, I think they were 100 for $1
Comment: Everything that was required was in the envelope, and honestly everything was awesome and thank you so much...
BUT I would like to note that on the little card inside of the envelope you wrote someone else's name.
My name is Ken(dall) and you wrote "Hi Sam," which really put a damper on such a nice card and nice gifts (something kind of disappointing to realize that someone did not care and wrote the completely wrong name). Please be more careful in the future...
Response: I am so sorry about that, I sent out another swap that same day and switched the little inside cards. I always read my partners profiles and send items to their liking even when it is not required.
Comment: Thanks so much for getting my bag home to me! It's the first one to make it here. :-) I will pass the other bag along in the next round. I also appreciate the teas. Tazo Zen is one of my favorites! and my kids will love a different fun choice of Band-Aid!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful package. My 14 yr old daughter and I enjoyed looking at all the fun stuff. She stole a post card you sent. ;) I especially loved the envelope you sent it in. It was beautiful.
Comment: Hello Mindy,
Thank you for the 13 lovely washi tapes you sent me for this swap. You sent me many unique ones that I have not seen before in my washi tape wanderings. I look forward to using them in future projects. I hope we get to swap in the future.
Comment: Mindy! I love these botanical PC! I was just trying to order some daffodils to force, but they wouldn't send them to me, as I live in Alaska. I thought they would be a good project for the kids at school! I love the washi tape on the envie too! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful Washi envies!!! I especially love the orange/white/black one and the pink/blue tile one! Awesome! I don't know if I'll ever be able to send such beauties to someone else!!!
Comment: WOW.... I received your package last night and was so excited to open it. Even my boyfriend was looking over my shoulder. You totally went all out on making sure your swap to me was 1. packaged well and 2. Full of nice things.
I really cannot wait to taste test all these wonderful goodies. Have you had any of them? I plan on doing a snap-chat story taste testing each item over the weekend, I think. (If you have snap chat, Im @jinxspinx on there too )
Thank you again!
Response: I'm so glad you like what I picked out, hopefully they all taste good too. I have tried the princessa bar, the orange roll cookies, the sesame bar and the Ramen. I plan to go back to the store to get a few of the other things for myself to try.
Comment: You tricked me! I saw the snowflakes, wind, and blue sheet, so I guessed Frosty. Then I saw the Frosty picture and realized I guess it was too obvious. Great idea. Thanks for joining the swap : )
Comment: Mindy--these are beautiful envelopes and I will enjoy using them this season. Happy Holidays to you and your family--and have a wonderful new year! Thank you very much! I'm just making mine now to send out Monday a.m.
Comment: I know this is the game with this swap but I rarely receive stamps I like and I'm really not interested in those you sent, now I have plenty I don't use and don't like. But that's the game and thank you for the swap, they're in good quality and could have been great for somebody who is interested in wedding...
Comment: Happy one month anniversary!!! And, thank you for all the AWESOME Washi tapes! I love the Birthday present one and the one with the Ferris Wheel and the one with the animals! Thank you so much for being so generous with the extras as well!
Comment: Hi Mindy Thanks so much for the card - the little witch is so cute (I am not sure that witches are supposed to be cute but she was anyway). Thanks also for the stickers - I have not seen any like that before. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
