Comment: I never received this electronic swap. I sent you a message that went unread. I see you haven't been online in about two weeks, I hope all is well. If you ever come back and message me, I'd be willing to rerate.
Comment: I loved the selection of tattoos in this board! Super simple idea with BIG mean! probably my favorite tat on this board is the "freedom" tattoo with the top of the M taking flight like a bird! Awesome!
Comment: Thanks for the images :-) I love the one about not being average and sewing my own clothes. I LOVE SEWING and even my grandson sews :-) He doesnt like alot of people to know that because he's a boy :-(
Comment: This swap was due on Oct 5th. You pm me saying that it was sent and I never received. On mid november you told me you were resending and by mid dec I still had nothing. I contacted you again but the message have not being read yet. I'll just consider it a loss. If I ever receive anything I'll be glad to re-rate it. By all the swaps you have done before with so many stars, and recently the several 1 ratings you got, I'm imagining that you must be going thru a rough patch in life. I hope everything is ok with you and you find your way back into doing things you like.
Comment: It's a month after the send date and you haven't replied to my messages in a while. I was the host of this and it's sad not to get anything for this, especially when I put so much effort into mine. My heart is broken. I would be more than happy to re-rate if I receive this swap;
Comment: I communicated with you more than once and have yet to receive anything. Swap host has angeled for me.
Response: Um we spoke via pm on Swap-bot,as I had no idea you hadn't received, I said I'd resend and you replied to me on Nov 10th saying the following;
Ok, thank you so much for doing a re-send. I appreciate it.
So why are you rating me a 1 6 days later, it's not magic to send something from Australia to the USA. Please wait for the post to actually be able to get to you.
Comment: Haha, thank you so much, Mandii! I love what you sent to me. The leather flower thingy goes well with one or even two of my bags so I'm thinking of hanging it on one of them. All the shaped and coloured paper clips are very fun! The lip gloss phone charm is the silliest thing I've seen in a while so it is definitely perfect for a swap like this. The bunny is just adorable! The button badge with the blender with the world in it makes me think, I like it very much. The bracelet is just the perfect length, fits like a glove. And everything else, there were so many! You did a great job with this swap :)
Response: You're so welcome, I am glad you liked it all, I love unique/different things too :D
Thanks for rating and the heart!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great bag of Batman awesomeness! I don't think I'm going to be able to view the DVD as it's Region 4 and we're Region 1 here in the US, but maybe I'll find a non-region-specific player. All the items were fantastic (love the stickers and the clock especially!). Thank you so much for putting all that work into it and gathering such great items. I'm a happy fangirl!
Response: Awesome I am so glad you received and loved it all, I too loved the clock and wanted to keep it hehe. Can you watch the dvd on your computer? Thanks so much for the heart :D
Comment: Thank-you! I am so sorry to be so late rating you-especially as I have been using BOTH bookmarks you sent already! I love them! I sent my partner two also.Like you said-most of us are reading more than one thing at a time! :D
Response: You're Welcome! I'm lgad you love them and Thanks for rating.
Comment: Mandii I absolutely loved what you sent me !! Everything was just so wonderful. I love the cheetah pen so much !! My journal is great. You took such time to send an interesting package. I wish I could give you more than one heart!! Thank you do much - Kimberly
Response: You're welcome, I'm so glad you loved it all :D
Comment: Oh my goodness!!! I love everything you sent me!! Thank you so much for the Lucky Cat! I've always wanted the one with moving arm and now have it!!! My husband is jealous. Lol. ^_^ The coin purse and coins are awesome! I'm now going to start a coin collection. Thanks again for the wonderful Birthday package!! ^_^
Response: Oh I'm so glad, I was a little unsure if it was along the right lines of your collection :D I hope it brings you luck!
Comment: I'm sorry to have to rate you this one, but I will change if I ever recieve it. Updated on 1-20-12. This swapper has basically accused me thru the coordinator of lieing to get another swap out of her. She also said that if I remove this rating she will send another swap. That is blackmail and I will not do it! I would rather never recieve this swap then to remove this rating which is deserved. I have not recieved this swap from you. I'm not lying! I will rerate you if I ever do recieve because that is how it's supposed to be done! I have finally recieved my swap from you on 2/21/12 thank you for finally sending it to me.
Response: Are you serious?? I emailed you about this asking you to let me know if you had received as I sent on Dec 21st I have the email, and you read it. I find it very rude that you couldn't reply and let me know and are so quick to jump and rate a 1!! -
21st Jan - Response to your update: Actually communication is what is supposed to happen which happened on my side and the co-ordionators side (who also said people do that, rate a 1 so as to receive the swap again). But you didn't communicate with me. That's ok if you want to be rude like that and just rate a 1 without communicating, I will make sure I let people know that's how you do things, and I always send my swaps. I see you have been rated some 1's also on the basis those people did not receive but you said you sent, yet you are quick to jump and do the same to others that those people have done to you, I go by the saying treat others how you want to be treated. Anyway enjoy the 2nd lot I send to you. Updated response 27th Feb: This should be a 5 considering it was sent twice and you are only rating a 3 due to not receiving the first. Very unfair.
Comment: Thanks for the coins! I've never seen Australian currency before..and I admit, I'd be afraid to carry around the 50Â¢. We have a lot of designs on our quarters (25Â¢) too - they have commemorative coins come out every year (I think)
Comment: Sharks are my second fear. It's almost funny to me that you live in Australia and you're afraid of sharks because my mom used to talk about how I had to get over my fear of sharks before we could go to Australia when she retired. After so many years of her telling me this I guess she mentally conditioned me to think that everyone in Australia was not afraid of sharks.. which typed out sounds silly but.. never-the-less! lol.
Response: lol that is funny, no I am afraid of sharks but in a way it is illogical if you look at the statistics, and at most popular beaches they have a helicopter or lifesavers watching the water, so you'll be right (as us Aussie's say lol)
Thanks for rating and the heart :D
Comment: Sharks! I have an illogical fear of them too, but at least you live where they swim. Have you seen a real one out there? Now I'm gonna have nightmares. What does seaweed taste like??
Response: I have seen a real one, but not whilst out swimming, I have seen them in an aquarium and I have touched a small one out on this platoon thing at Victor Harbour SA (a tourist place). Thanks for rating and the heart, I am glad to hear I am not the only illogical person with a shark fear lol.
I can't quite explain the taste of seaweed, do you eat sushi? Next time ask the makers for a sheet of the seaweed (yaki nori), my friends do however think I am weird, but my kids like it too!
Comment: Thank you for sending such amazing, and profile perfect, gifts!!! The silver necklace is stunning... I love it! But, my favorite item was the "History of Flying Pigs" book. This was a kind and very thoughtful package. I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into it. Merry Christmas!
Comment: t/y sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for the great hk and betty boop stuff :o) I love the presents !!! Merry x-mas :D
Comment: Oh, my..I wish I could give you infinite hearts; what *fabulous* goodies! :-D Thank you ever sooo much! :-) Everything was awesome, but I was *most* excited by the mini candycanes (blueberry & butterscotch flavour..? How awesome!!! ..very much looking forward to trying these! :-D) and the Peter Rabbit ribbons/chipboard alphabet (:-O â€“ my mouth literally dropped open when I opened this.. oh my.. could it be any more perfect?! Wow!!) Huuuge Christmas-y hugs of gratitude coming right at'ya!! ;-) hehe! Merry Christmas! ^_^
Comment: WOOWWY-ZOOWEYY I am sooo super stoked you got me my most favourite thing on my favs list.. I love this night light.....OHHH I wish you could see it in person. When it lights up in the dark it looks fantastic!
Comment: A heart for your big heart. Just allowing people into the traffic cue is bigger than you think. You are a good Mom - your kiddies are lucky :) It was great reading your PIF - I think I'm going to grab some of them to do myself :)
Response: Thanks I appreciate that, I have had many things to redo from my flat mail that went missing (I tried to email everyone to find out if they received I'm sorry if I didn't email you, but I can to let you know more), yours is almost finished, unfortunately I didn't know right away you hadn't received.
Comment: Mandii, you did an outstanding job of showing kindness in how carefully you read and fulfilled this swap from my profile. Since I can't buy such goodies here I am doubly grateful. Doing scrapbooks for my two daughters now so they will be lovely touches for that. Thank you soooo much. Wish I could give more than one star.
Response: You are most welcome, I am glad you like it all :D Thanks for rating
Comment: Very nice. Places like that never have enough. I once found a mink hat in a thrift store that when turned inside out made the perfect kitten bed. I bought it & took it to the Humane Society cat room.
Response: Oh the kitties would have loved that, snuggly and warm. Thanks for rating :)
Comment: The second package arrived today. Allison was so thrilled. She was amazed by all the stamps you used. Then when she got into her goodies, her eyes lit up. She loves, loves the LPS and stickers. She said I should make sure to give you a heart and a hug. So hopefully cyber works for ya. Thanyou so much.
Response: Tell her Cyber does work for me thanks lol and am so glad she finally got her swap and also loves it :D
Thanks for rating
Comment: Oh, so much fun stuff! They say resend, so I guess you had to send twice?? I am so sorry. But it is all lovely. The comic book made me LAUGH (I DO love them!) but my very favorite I just received yesterday... the daffoldil things. I LOVE them... I have never even heard of daffodil day!!! So awesome!! I put my keys right on the chain... I was actually waiting for a perfect one. And I expected just to like the outside of the pen, but it writes really nicely!! Anyway, thank you for all five days, totally rockin awesome! :)
Response: YW!! Oh tis not your fault at all, but am glad you have now got them and have now heard of daffodil day :D. They change the design on the pen a bit each year but I tend to like how they write too. Enjoy and thanks for rating :)
Comment: Mandii! Thanks so much for such a terrific package!!! OMG, I LOVE the book! I just bought a recent DVD that is much like it;) I can't wait to read it! I thank you so much for everything in the package, I have many teas to choose from now! I also love the coinpurse and keychain! My daughter took the bandaids and stashed them for herself:P Thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad you love everything :D I had fun shoppig for it all, was a little unsure of the purse but am glad you like (cause after I bought it I looked and go to myself oh wait is this snakeskin look alike hmm I think she might still like will send as well lol)
Comment: Mandii oh wow, this package was beyond belief, thank you so much! I loved everything, you took such care to send me something / EVERYTHING that I would love! Its times like these that I wish Swap-bot would allow us to give more hearts cos you sure do deserve 100! Thank you! =)
Response: LOL Am so glad you liked everything, I had fun shopping for your things :D and YW
Comment: It made it! Thank you so much for a great package! The purse is definitely kitschy and I adore the color. As I was opening the package my niece saw the brown purse and said "oooh! My purse!" as if it was something she already owned that I had just found for her. Of course I had to give it to her ( I just can't resist making her smile), and she ran to go show mommy. The butterfly wallet will come in handy too! Thank you again!
Response: Fabulous you received, and fabulous you liked it all :D YW
Comment: Wow what a lovely package, I loved opening it. You obviously checked my profile. Love the bracelet, socks, stationery, oh and the key cover with my name on so everything! Hope to get you as my partner again x
Response: YW, I had loads of fun shoppinf for you :D Am glad you liked everything
Comment: Thank you so much for the thoughtful surprises. I particularly love the airmail etiquettes, shells and beach glass. The pencil and tape will get plenty of use! (My daughter already claimed a bit of the tape insisting it was a kitty bandaid!)
Response: oh fabulous I am glad you like it all :D
Comment: Excellent! More comment later.....
I finally have time to sit down and write comments! The last two weeks have been very busy and I didn't get much computer time. I LOVE the things you sent ~ all of it! The card with the rock formations brings back good memories. We went to Australia a few years ago and drove out on the Great Ocean Road to see the 12 Apostles. It was a beautiful day and a great trip. Our whole experience in Australia was wonderful and I want to go back there again.
Comment: This was truely the luckiest lucky parcel!!! I LOVE it all!! I do not have nor have I ever seen either of the stamps and they are fantastic!!! I have been coveting a birdcage stamp for a LLLLLLLLLLOOOOONNNNG time!!! The inks the paper, so generous!! Thank you so much! This was a fantastic swap!
Response: Soooooo glad you do!! And I hope everything is useful :D I got an extra ink for me have never used one before (I thought they were just ink pads when I saw you wanted them lol till I got them and read the back). Thanks for rating and the heart :D
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful package you sent for this swap! Everything you sent I will certainly use!! Love the great assortment of note cards, along with the address labels, flower (& butterfly) stickers, and the bird/flower notebook. This was fun!!
Response: **UPDATE 20th May 2010** Thankyou for re rating once you had received.
I can't believe you have rated me a 1 without contacting me. I sent your swap, and it was late BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T MEET SWAP REQUIREMENTS. I emailed you, and the host of the swap emailed you and you still didn't answer the swap requirements. And you still haven't, I had to put something together without knowing your child's age, you can't buy things without knowing who you are sending to, especially children. And then you have the gall to rudely email the host demanding where your swap is!! It is in the mail, you will receive any day now but I am contacting swap-bot about this as it's ridiculous.
Comment: Wow, what a great envie of goodies! I loved it all, and what a nice treat too! Sent in a nice zippered plastic envelope to keep it all safe in shipping. Would give more hearts if I could. Thank you so much! Have a wonderfully crafty day!
Response: Thanks so much for rating and the heart, I am glad you loved it :)
Comment: Thank you for your lovely journal. The resend finally arrived at its destination. I wonder, if the first one will ever make it, too :) I had fun to have a first look at it, but I will go through it again. Thank you also for all the goodies in the envie of one page.
Response: YW I am glad you finally received, I wonder too, either way I enjoy making them, it's a new thing I have discovered :)
Comment: Dusty got his package today, it had been opened and taped closed so I guess customs has had it. Would love to do this again, before I didn't know what an A4 envie was so I don't think I followed the rules correctly. THANK YOU!
Response: That's ok :) Am glad you got it finally. I hope everything was still in there. Did Dusty want to reply to Kayne and then Kayne will reply to Dusty and they can just keep it going, and each time they can put in a little something for each other, it doesn't always have to be big things either. Let me know, and I can also tell you exactly what was in there if you think something might have been taken outby customs.
Comment: Thanks (to both of you) for the generous and thoughtful surprise-and for sending it such a great distance. It was opened with glee and immediately put together. He did not even want to stop for dinner. Thank you.
Response: Oh fabulous! Am glad he loved it, we were hoping he didn't already have one the same :)
Comment: wow looks like you did over spend!! thankyou very much for spoiling me and my son!! you should of seen his face light up when he saw the thomas things and we got some really good stuff in the lucky bag!
Response: I'm so glad you and your son loved it :D
Comment: Wow!! What a super pack of goodies! I can't believe how much you had to spend on postage though! :o I'm gonna put together a package for you in return. Thankyou so much, you really made my day ^.^ xxx
Response: I am so glad it made your day :)
\Yes I know I spend a fair bit on postage but these things happen :D
Comment: OMG you totally ROCK my friend :-D This was such an awesome package I almost cried lol :-) I loved EVERY SINGLE THING you stuffed in there, thank you so much, you most certainly belong in this group ;-)
Response: Am so so glad that you loved everything :D I went to so many places to find stuff for you, so am glad you loved it all hehe
Comment: Thank you for the envelope of loveliness. I enjoyed both poems and I really appreciate the quote bookmark. The photos of your coastline are beautiful. What a nice place to walk. Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself with me.
Response: Your most welcome, I am glad you enjoyed the parcel and thanks so much for rating, and yes it is lovely to walk to there :)
Comment: wow mandii thanks times a thousand .. i would give you ten hearts if i could i didnt even realize the envelope was for this swap at first ...you were so generous to send me SO much ... i LOVE it all ty ty ty !!! (:
Response: You are most welcome :D I am glad you liked, I hope the scrapbook paper wasn't too creased I didn't have an envie big enough for it so had to bend a little.
Thanks for rating and the heart!!
Comment: Holy smokes, woman! That's the coolest random envie I've ever received! I don't think the ones I sent were half that big! Would you like me to send you something in return?? :) Plus, it didn't feel very random, lol! Appreciate everything!
Response: Yay I am so glad you like :D No I always look at peoples profiles even with random stuff to see if I might have something in my HUGE stash of goodies (I buy WAY in advance for stuff lol). Absolutely do not send me something in return lol just enjoy :D
Thanks for rating and the heart!!
Comment: Super awesome package - yes you DID send my wishlist, hee hee! Love the grey kitty embellishments as one of my beloved kitties was grey and will be doing his scrapbook with lots of greys! LOVE the cool post-its, and the super cool paper clips!! The little notecards, candle and especially Aussie postcard were great. Thanks so much for fun package!
Response: Oh fabulous, am so glad you loved it, thanks for rating and for the heart :D
Comment: Thank you! I love it all. But especially the smurf bookmark. That made my day! :)
Response: I'm so glad you have received and love it :D
Just yesterday I was looking through my stash of stuff and found an A4 sheet of smurf stickers and I was saying damn I coulda sent those too, well maybe if we have another swap together soon I'll pop it in :)
Comment: OMG OMG OMG!!! Thank you so so very much for the wonderful package of pansy goodies!!! I have never seen ANY of this before and I was squealing with delight at every single thing!!! I don't believe you felt you had to order more, this is absolutely wonderful and made my day!!!!!
Response: Oh so fabulous am glad you loved it all, that other thing that I ordered apparently got sent back to the ebay seller and she has sent me more as they were damaged when they got back to her, so I will also send them on when they get here ;p I won't forget.
Thanks for the heart :D
Comment: So far I've got one of the 2 packages you sent, but that's more than enogh to give you a heart.
I got the woolworths mag, it is really really neat, not only do the recipes look great but also I've found quite a few interesting foodstuff I wanna try (I love to try ANYTHING that can be eaten by a human been LoL)
thank you a lot
Response: Oh that's fantastic that you have received, no idea why you haven't got both though lol as they were sent as same time lol.
Thanks so much for the heart :D
Well the next one has some nice things to eat in it, so hopefully it still gets to you :D
So glad you have now received both :D
