Comment: I wish I could give more than one heart for this package, it's absolutely awesome! Thank you so much, Lisa. You have taken so much care and attention putting this together, with a mixture of interesting bits and pieces, and items chosen from my profile (and something for the kids!). I really can't thank you enough, it's made my week! :)
PS. Your sea glass is beautiful, there's a few new colours to add to my (poorly tumbled Australian) collection! :D
Comment: Wow!! That was such an amazingly interesting box - so much so that a simple thank-you and heart is not adequate for thanks. I am pretty busy this week, but when I have some spare time, I am sending you a snail mail proper thanks.
Comment: Wow! Thank you for this most generous and amazing swap! I love the air plants in the shell and am searching for a perfect place to hang it. So much chocolate! I love all the fruity flavours! You went above and beyond for this swap. Thank you so much and Happy Holidays. I would give you many more hearts if I could.
Response: Yay! Made it! Sent you note offline. Enjoy:)
Comment: Oh my goodness you generous creature!!!! Thank you so much for my parcel I absolutely loved it!!! Thank you letter on its way to you!!!!
Response: Hi ~ Hi! I am SO sorry! I had no idea I didn't respond to your note. I was thinking of you the other day when I ran across a drawer in my studio of leather scraps. PS ~ CONGRATS on your most recent win:). Well deserved!
Comment: What a wonderful parcel you sent. The penny was great and all the other extra items just fantastic. Thanks very much, it was a nice surprise.
Response: Hi! I am so glad you liked your little package. I love doing them and making a day brighter:). So sorry it took me so long to respond., I work a LOT and have bunches of art I am working on and of course needed to add a large stained glass piece in the mix, haHA! So not online as much to check. Take care. Happy creating. Hugs, Lis
Comment: WOW!! Just WOW.. So over and above. Thank you for the wonderful swap.
Response: Awesome!!! Glad you enjoyed. I honestly cannot believe how fast it arrived!!! Hope your little one enjoyed her little surprises:). Nothing better then to put a smile on a face:). Hugs from the coastside.
Comment: Wow! I did not expect such an amazingly nice gift! Thank you so much! I so love handmade items and you put alot of thought into it, my daughter is also in awe, she is carrying around her little stone and petrified sea shell and keeping it in her treasure box, it will be very loved. Your card was so nice too, Batik prints are my favorite fabrics :) I hope your finger feels better soon, take care!
Response: You are so welcome :). Glad you enjoyed your package. I LOVE doing these.......and it fun to add things I love from the sea for your daughter. Hope you have fun making something with fabric. I love batiks too, These came from Pine Needles. Adore her fabrics. xoxo
Comment: Holy cats, Lisa Brians, you just sent me one of the most generous, wonderful, happy-making packages I have ever received! It's totally unfair that I can only give you one star for this. You went so far above and beyond. The selenite is indeed an amazing thing to look at, with it's natural tower formation. But the lovely air plant arrangement inside the shell blew me away! And the beautiful fabric you used to wrap with... how did you make the fabric ribbon? Did you hand dye it? I think I am going to start wrapping presents with fabric too! Thank you, a thousand times!
Response: Aww..your welcome. Thanks for making my morning. Little bit of tears here:). Love that you like what I sent. Enjoy. The ribbon is actually Sari silk. Hope you can use in something fun. I like to wrap in fat quarter fabrics or close to it so pretty much everything can be re-used in some other art form. This Sari silk I got from a gal I love on Etsy, but I have torn my own. They are always colorful so dont need to dye. xoxo, Lis
Comment: 500 hearts to you, Lisa!! First of all your ATC is exquisite! Such a beautiful job front and back..there are things magically effervecing off of it from different angles!!! I really love it! And then there are all the extras...the amethyst gem, the special wrappings and ribbons, the pieces of gorgeous material, extra sheets of gorgeous card stock and the very special jelly fish! Jelly fish had made the trip, has been misted and is doing well on my kitchen window!! That is a bromiliad, am I correct? Well I certainly LOVE everything...you really went above and beyond! I sure hope you have re-couped from Whooping cough. No one should have to go through that!!
Thanks so much for everything!! Chari
Response: Yay! SO glad it got there in one piece :). I kinda laughed when wrapping as it looked like a big bubble. Yes, its a Air Plant (Tillandsia Bromeliad ). The glass piece on top is off antique chandelier I tore down to bare bones. ATC's are one of my very favorites. And anyone who knows me, know I cannot make something without a piece of fabric, lace, silk ribbon ect, ha! Makes me smile that you enjoyed your package. I know you love purple, hence the purple things:). Thanks for the good wishes, whooping cough is miserable.Who knew it was even back? Not me, sigh. But yes, I am over the worst part, so that makes me happy. Take care ~ maybe we shall pass again in a swap one of these days.
Comment: Oh my!!! I don't know what to say about your truly WONDERFUL package!!! I will be sending you a PM to properly thank you for your extremely kind & caring package! I'm just blown away! Thank you so, so very much! You are an amazing person! :o)
Response: Aww thanks sweetie!!! Love your note:). Super fun to put together. Yay to rock swap!! xoxo
Comment: Thanks for cheering me up after my mother passing away and I love those extra and tell your grandma thanks. I wish I could give you five hearts. you need to tell me what method did you use on your fabric of image impression.
Response: Hi sweetie,
I am sending you offline note too. But REALLY glad you liked your little box of treats. Big hugs
Comment: Wow! I love all the patches you made for me :) Thank you for all the extra materials and buttons and everything. And I love the pumpkin quilt block.....I might frame it and put it in my kitchen. Thanks again <3
Response: Thank YOU for hosting such a fun swap. Big hugs!!!!
Comment: thank you for the two postcards, this time it came :) thank you again ^_^
Response: Your welcome. I am really glad you got them. I hope the 1st one makes it someday, it was a special coastside one:). I think it really helped to have them typed for address instead of my handwriting:). Thanks!
Comment: Since I have lived in the UAE this is the best package I've ever gotten! Thank you so much for sending such nice things.
Response: Hi ~ I am SO glad it got to you! I always kinda worry , "will it get there", when going international:). I had SO MUCH fun putting your package together. May you be able to create fun things with what I sent. Hugs and if you want more, holler!
Comment: Oh my! Even though this swap was a few days past the deadline, I am giving you a 5 plus a heart. You communicated over the course of this swap, and this swap was WONDERFUL!, You really are skilled in your sewing and even fit the subjects to my favorite themes. A nice letter was included, extra, extra care with the packaging and lovely fabrics as 'packing material'. You TRULY went the extra mile. Your little patches are absolute treasures! Thank you SO much!
Response: Hi Wanda ~ I am SO glad you liked!!! I really enjoyed this swap and may do the next one. And of course, you saw my note, so keep an eye out:). Hugs
Comment: Thank You so much for the extra piece of material. Love it I really got your package today. What a wonderful surprise and thank you very much. You certainly deserve many hearts for this
Response: Hi ~ YAYYY!!! I'm SO glad!! I hope the colors are ok and that you have fun using. I thought ( like in my note ~ that you both can switch and/or share if you like). Take care. So fun to do the swap for you both. Hugs
