Comment: I apologize for the late rating--a few swaps slipped behind the couch. Thank you so much for the gorgeous napkins and the washi. Looking forward to a little holiday time off to do some crafting!
Comment: Zaadia, thank you for an AMAZING swap! I love how everything was wrapped in cloth / fabric / little towels, what a thoughtful touch! i adore absolutely everything you chose for me. the celestite, Texan honey, lovely essential oils, the mug, money candle, incense, the cutest stickers i cant wait to use in my grimoire, the list goes on and on! The tshirts made me giggle and are so me! Also how neat are those tea bags representing historical icons? I have never seen that before! Thank you thank you thank you for each and every gift <3 i could feel the care put into it all! I too feel like we are kindred spirits :-) I hope you enjoy everything I have sent you just as much, please do stay in touch! Wishing you a Happy Halloween with lots of love from NH
Response: You’re very welcome! So happy to know it arrived safely and you’re enjoying it all! I have a letter mentioning some of the items that aren’t labeled and their journey; it didn’t make it in the box. (As you know.) I love wrapping gifts in reusable cloth with ribbons, that peeps can use as extra gifts or upcycle! — Not knowing what to give you for your alter, when I saw the Black Fossils Orthoceras Ammonite Card Holder, I thought perhaps you could use it to hold recipes, artwork or photos for Samhain & throughout the years. Fossils are rather common in TX. The historical Tea Book company, I discovered on another swappers profile. They mentioned it in their ratings and I felt compelled to order several sets! Lol. Love the concept! I had so much fun shopping for you, kept finding more things I thought you might like, that I actually could have sent another stuffed large box! When you’re moving to Texas, let me know! 😄 ~ Z
Comment: Its sooooooooooo pretty! That linen card is just so pretty Wowza! If you ask me looks like you picked all of these out for me or was it just a lucky draw. Oh I love that pad of paper too; Pretty kitty. Dont keep me in suspense girl tell me about all the bones you convered. Are they gonna name anything after you? giggles
Response: Lucky draw. Except for the linen pc. Funny thing is, I think I got more excited finding the section in the antique store with practically mint condition linen postcards, than my earlier thrill that day digging for fossils! That particular park, only has the small, mostly plant life kind. It was still fun and educating. I found lots of fossils, nothing to be named after that I know of, one of my favs was an interesting horned coral that looks like a mini cornucopia. Thanks for the rating, comments here & on my profile & the ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: I opened the box and oh, my goodness! The colors, the textures! Counting down the days until next week when our 10 Days begin and I can dive in and start opening packages. Thanks in advance! 28OCT21 update: If I had to pick a single favorite item (I've opened six), I'd have to say -- I CAN'T! I love every single thing. And I'm delighted to have a collection of Autumn kitchen towels. A piece of last night's jack-o'-lantern fabric is going into my October journal. Thanks much! 31Oct21 Update: Happy Halloween, my friend. As I write this, the pumpkin is glowing (so cute!) and the fiber scarf is beautiful! I'm still in awe of Nights 7 and 8: the mixed media kit, oh my! Thanks for a terrific countdown to Halloween.
Response: You’re very welcome! — and thank you for the update! ~ It fills me with delight, knowing you’re enjoying your gifts, so far! I find it’s nice to wrap gifts in useful stuff like towels & fabric, with decorative ribbons. It’s like multi-gifts in one, that are more fun to upcycle, or use as is. I look forward to learning more about your experiences, as the nights of Halloween continue. — Thanks for the rating, the comments & ❤️. ~ Z. — Update to your update 😄: I’m so happy to know you enjoyed this swap and hope you cherish the gifts & my efforts. It was fun finding things, buying things and putting it all together for you! I definitely wondered what you thought of the Ephemera pockets kit I made you (I drove 1.5 hrs to a Staples store to get it all printed (some was from a download I bought on Etsy, since our printer ran out of ink), the Real leaves with your favorite colors I bought from a couple in Washington state on Etsy (thought they’re beautiful & had some leaves not commonly found in TX) & even though I definitely could have made the scarf for you, I saw this seller on Etsy who makes the fiber scarves. I adored it and love to support small businesses, especially the crafty kind! So I since I saw on your profile that you like scarves & this has your favorite colors that you listed on the swap, I felt it call to me, whispering, please get me for Felicia! Lol. 💕 ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful beginning of a PC! Can't wait to add to this ♥
Response: You’re welcome. Thanks for the compliment. I thought it’d be extra fun to play with my dry embossing folder, since I liked the autumn washi on gold foil effect so much, I put it through the wringer! Haha. Love the texture & think it looks cool, so I added some elements & included it on the pc with trepidation that is still within the swap requirements. Glad to know it’s well received! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Wow Zaadia!! I love everything u sent. Thanks for ur generosity! I love the washi tape samples, pretty stickers and those cute die cuts are just like autumn fallen leaves!! Thrive well! 😉
Response: You’re very welcome! So glad to know it arrived well & you enjoy it all! Funny thing is, the next day after mailing it, several of our trees leaves changed color & I thought, ‘Uh, I could have included some for you to see, if I had waited one more day!’ Sigh. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Hi Zaadia,
Thank You for returning my postcard to me after you colored the last section of the postcard I sent out and the came back. A lot of similar colors were used in the 4 sections.
I hope we meet-up again in the future! !Continued ENJOYMENT on Swap-bot!
Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
Response: You’re welcome, Barbara. According to my records, though, I sent you someone else’s pc, with the last section for you to color & then mail it home. Anyway, I’m glad to know you got it & hope you like my extra little gifts for you. Thanks for the rating, the comments (although, confusing) & the ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Dear Zaadia, Truly an amazing swap. Probably one of the prettiest swaps I have received in a while. LOVE the dried leaves and all the effort you put into making this a special swap as well as you kind letter. Thank You!!
Response: Yay! ~ So glad to know that you’re enjoying it all! Thankful that it made it, safely to your hands, too! Thanks for the rating, your kind words & the ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Hi! I safely received your card and can i just say... WOW! I do not think i've ever received a swap this amazing before. THANK YOU! for everything! I love it all, i cannot explain how spoilt i feel!
i cant wait to plant the wildflowers you sent! I just moved unto my new university accommodation so i've been looking to get more decorations, i willd efinielty send you picture updates!!
I'd love to send you something back!! I'm still new to swap bot so I dont really hae as much, but i'd like to send you something, even something little to say thank you!!
Response: You’re very welcome! I’m so glad to know it arrived well & that you’re pleased; I aim to astonish! 😊 I love to brighten another’s day! 💕 Seeing updates sounds nice! Also, if you want to send me something, then please do what your heart feels inspired to do. I’m sure, whatever it is, I will cherish receiving some Happy Mail, too! 💕 Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Thanks! I wanted to make more and more, too.
Are you Russian? Your handwriting reminds me of a Russian friend of mine’s.
Response: You’re welcome. Glad to know they arrived safely & hopefully you’re pleased. I often have people curious about my name’s origin, however, I’ve yet to experience a geographical inquiry, based on my handwriting. This peeks my interest! ( Hmmm, do I have a handwriting doppelgänger? 🧐🤪 ) ~ I did have a friend from Turkey, who once said I could probably easily write their native language. To answer your Q: I’m a Texan by birth. Many in my family have puzzled over my handwriting, for no one else wrote like me & my mom is left handed, whereas, I use my right to write. I started writing at a very early age & they all originally thought the other relatives were teaching me, yet they were not. (Hand sewing & art, as well.) Then decades later, when my son was homeschooling, we found out that my handwriting style has a type called *Italics* & there’s even an organization in the UK that teaches people how to write like this! Funny stuff. I didn’t know that was a thing! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: I love a postcard where every bit of space is written on. <3
Response: Yes, indeed! Me, too! It’s the first thing I go for, when receiving a postcard; I can’t wait to read what someone wrote, to learn more about them, in their part of our world! Thanks for the rating, comment & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Hi Zaadia~ WOW is all I can say about the swap you sent. Such an amazing bunch of goodies, I can't believe it! LOVE that embossed tag and all the other little things you made. You really put together a thoughtful package--many thanks and I hope we get to swap together again very soon!
Response: You’re very welcome! It was fun for me, too! Sometimes, I like to see if I can intuitively choose what a person might enjoy & these blind swaps are perfect for that. Yet then again, this was easy since I love nature & have acquired several items within this theme, which is why I felt like I should do something extra & also play with my paper embossing sleeves. So glad to know that you love it all! It fills me with warm joy! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Such a beautiful and special card. This Will go in my Christmas collection. I laminated them and we hang them up on a garland for wishes around the world at Christmas. Thank you so much for the prayers and wishes. It felt like a warm hug. ❤️
Response: You’re very welcome! Aaahh, your words fill me with delightful joy! — And your Garland idea, sounds divine! What a thoughtful way to be present with your cards again & share them with the Christmas Spirit for others, too! I think I might adopt that beautiful sentiment experience, as well!!! Thank you for sharing that with me and for your rating, your lovely comments & ❤️! ~ Z 💕
Comment: I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE THIS PACKAGE SO MUCH! So many goodies and the teas are absolutley perfect. I’m gonna give my sister the rbg one because she literally likes her 😂. Thank you for such a thoughtful swap. I loved it so so much 💕💕
Response: Aaahhh, this fills me with warm fuzzy feelings of joy, knowing it arrived well & you enjoy it so! I’m glad you love it & are sharing with your sister, too! Thanks for your rating, comments & ❤️ ! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! It certainly has taken its time getting here, but it finally arrived, and it's awesome!
Response: Whoa! Wow! Hope that pc got to see a lot of sights! That seems rather long. Wondering if it got stuck to something, or hitchhiked a ride to some great beyond! Well, I’m glad it arrived and hope you’re pleased. This was my favorite, out of the two I received to work on, so far. Wonder if anything fell off? Or how many scars it may have on such a journey? Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much! I love all the postcards! It is hard to pick a favorite! I think the Fox Tail is my favorite! I hope you have lots of fun with all the rhinestones. <3
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad you enjoy the orchid postcards! They are so pretty, indeed. Thanks for an astonishing swap! I was grinning from ear to ear!!! And Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Hello Zaadia! Thank you very much, for the Texas Caviar recipe PC ( thank goodness, no actual caviar is involved or otherwise, ewww! ) and thank you for list items in your car. We have about the same things you do in your car. Except for the phone charger.
Response: You’re very welcome! So glad you like the recipe pc & I relate to the caviar sentiment! 🤢 Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for the happiness to add to my jar. I'm sure they will bring brightness when I need it. And thank you for all of the goodies! So very kind and thoughtful and that you read my profile. Thank you! :) Take care!
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you so much for such a fabulous swap!!! You put so much time, effort and heart into the whole thing. So many little bits and pieces to open made for a fun experience. You did such a great job on it all and definitely added to my birthday. I will be sending you a nice long message in the next couple days to chat more about everything 8)
Response: You’re very welcome. Had originally planned to create clues with little messages tucked in the gifts, to entice mystery & wonderment about what *crime* was committed, yet didn’t have the time. Glad you enjoyed it anyway. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️ ~ Z
Comment: Hi again! :-) Thanks for passing along the notebook -- no worries about sending on the last day at all. I often do, and it's still within the time frame, after all. I love the little seed heart, and thank you for the washi tape too!
Response: You’re welcome. Last month was challenging for me. So there were definitely a few swaps that I sent on the last day of the deadline, which I think caused me way more anxiety than my partners! Anyway, I’m glad it arrived safely and you enjoyed the extra little gifts. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Wow...I don't know why this PC took so very long to get to me. Glad it finally made it. Thank you! Where did you find the "hello" sticker?
Response: Wish I could say I am surprised by how long it took to arrive! Unfortunately for us, our family, our neighbors & our small town post office, there’s been a flood of people who’ve moved into our area the past 2-3 yrs & our PO is struggling to keep up! I stress *past*, because I’d like to affirm they stop developing here! We moved to the country for a reason! (Sigh) It seems that the fastest mail that’s arrived to a swap partner, was a priority mail package, which still had some initial delayed hiccups with the PO, which I took it to the next town over from us! Anyway, I’m glad to know your pc arrived safely. The “Hello” sticker, is a piece I cut from some washi tape that just has a black or a red Hello word printed on it. It’s lasted for years, because I just cut that one word off. Thanks the for rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: I agree with healthy food and electricity along with healthy shelter. Honestly, it's sad that basic needs that need to met aren't free
Response: Indeed! It’s a shame, for sure. I view our whole world as family; it’s just sad the system doesn’t seem to see it that way, yet! I’d like to see something change, without any ulterior motives. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️
Comment: Hi Zaadia, thank you for your heart-felt letter. Although I wish your June story wasn't true, I suspect it is. Thank you for sharing your story and for the seeds and paper goods. This is a such a beautiful mail. I hope the month of July has been kind to you so far. Lots of love, Cindy
Response: You’re welcome & thank you, Cindy, for your kind words! Yes, the experience of June was true. July had its challenges, too, it’s been hard; yet things are looking up now. I’m glad you enjoyed the little extra gifts. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: I just received this yesterday, not sure what happened there but otherwise this was a great swap, I loved the music tissue paper and the little stickers. The cards will come in handy. Thank you so much!
Response: As I mentioned to another swapper: Wish I could say I am surprised by how long it took to arrive! Unfortunately for us, our family, our neighbors & our small town post office, there’s been a flood of people who’ve moved into our area the past 2-3 yrs & our PO is struggling to keep up! I stress *past*, because I’d like to affirm they stop developing here! We moved to the country for a reason! (Sigh) It seems that the fastest mail that’s arrived to a swap partner, was a priory mail package, which still had some initial delayed hiccups with the PO, which I took it to the next town over from us! Anyway, I’m glad it arrived safely and you’re enjoying the goodies. Thanks for the rating, comment & ❤️. ~ Z
Response: Thanks for the artwork, the rating & ❤️. If you’re wondering why I haven’t mailed *your* raw materials back yet, it’s because I still haven’t **received** the raw materials from your swap, yet. ~ Z
Response: You’re very welcome! Received your collaged pc of my raw materials & I’m not sure if anything fell off; the tree & elephant’s trunk were smooshed & bunched up. Otherwise, it’s a pretty interesting sparkly composition. Not sure if you noticed this, but the words on the bottom that show up from the base text paper, say, “Old are Worthless!” Something I definitely disagree with & have seen too much of in our culture. I think the original text said something about “Botanical herbs that are old are worthless.” Anyway, hope you enjoyed the extra goodies I gifted you for your crafts. Thanks for your artwork, the rating, comment & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: I love your plan to design postcards for where you live! I’ve never looked to see if my area has any, tho I’d be surprised to find any. Like you, I usually send postcards from the nearest city - I am an hour east of Vancouver 😸
Response: It must be beautiful where you live! Designing pc’s for your town might be something you could consider, too! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: I just received your letter today. You weren’t kidding about the awful snafu with your mail service! I feel bad for you! Your letter is so interesting. I’m going to Google “biomimicry regenerative rewilding food forest”. About those other shows you mentioned - we only have basic cable and Netflix. I don’t think they are on that, but I’m definitely going to check! Thanks for the recommendations!! Such cute stationery & envelope. Thanks for the perfect extras, too!
Comment: This package certainly went on an adventure, but it's finally here! Thank you so much for the effort you put into this, it's a lot more than I was expecting! <3 I love all the tea flavors, and the snacks all look delicious, especially the sweets and oat bars. I tried one of the power bars with my roommate just now and it's definitely like nothing I've ever tasted before! It'll be very cool to try all these things!
Response: Wow! It certainly sounds like it was on quite the adventure, considering I had sent it on April 20th, this year! Now if only the package could talk, right? What interesting sights & sounds it may have experienced with things it might say! Except if it just said that it had an uneventful journey to a detainment room in questionable Customs buildings! Lol. Anyway, I am So happy to know you finally received it & glad to know you’re enjoying it all. My plan was to astonish you! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Thanks so very much for the lovely swap! I have wanted to try oolong and the love tea looks so interesting! I'm in love with the themed washi! And I'm going to try to sprout the card and be diligent about watering. Thanks for the notes on the back! Such happy mail! Take care!
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know you enjoyed it all. My plan is to astonish! I like oolong with mint or something else added to it. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: 6/22/21 just rec'd your env. loved it. Thank you so much
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know it arrived well & you enjoyed it all. Now, if only the envelopes could tell us about the adventures they had on their journeys, right!?!? It’s so bizarre how some get to their destinations quickly, while others seem to poke along…maybe they’re seeing the sights? 🤔 Thanks for the rating, comments & Heart. ~ Z
Comment: If I could give 1000 hearts ♥️ I definitely would. Firstly, thankyou so so so much for brightening my entire month with your kindness and generosity. I know we decided to swap 100 grams but you went over and above and sent me 10 x more , I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. This is something I will always always remember my entire life and I would love to stay in touch with such kind soul. Even though it was your birthday but yet decided to spoil and make someone (mine) else’s day..
I greatly appreciate all the efforts you had put from Amazing goodies to crafty matchbox and pocket letter. Everything I received was just OUTSTANDING. thankyou very much Zaadia. Have a good day❤️
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know it arrived well & you enjoyed it all. My plan was to astonish you and it seems to be a success! Yay! ❤️ I love to give on my birthday! ❤️ Thank you, for reaching out to me, about a private swap & for being gracious to receive my extra gifts to you! Most definitely feel free to keep in touch! I’d like that, too. I still have yet to receive the swap from you, yet be worry-free, it will show up one of these days. I’ll let you know when it gets here. Thanks for the rating, comments & Heart. ~ Z
Comment: WOW! I recd.your wonderful pkg. today in the post. Thank you for all the wonderful PCS, washi tape, heart of flowers, which I;m anxious to try and the postage stamps. I'm sending you a bucket of hearts.Hope you have a wonderful day. bearnbabs
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know it arrived well & you enjoyed it all. ❤️ I’d love to see your flowers success. Thanks for the rating, comments & Heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you soo much for your kindness to care about my insulin resistance!! :) Even the foods have some sugar, I'm 100% sure they will be consumed by me!! ;) Thanks a lot!
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know it arrived well & you enjoyed it all. I was careful to inspect the ingredients for no added processed sugars. 😄 some foods & fruits naturally have sugar, yet it doesn’t metabolize the same as refined processed types. Plus, due to my healthcare & nutrition background, I cannot in good conscious, provide any artificial sweeteners since I know they’re toxic. Hope you enjoyed the healthy foods I sent. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Well, I must say this must be the most creative, thoughtful and wonderful swap I've ever received. And I must say I love it! Thank you thunderstorm for cutting out your power and allowing your creativity to thrive. I just love the concept. And thank you for the lovely extras. Much appreciated. Take care
Response: 😊 Wow! You’re very welcome. I’m so happy to know it arrived safely & you love it all! It was fun, even with the storm, to create for you! Thank you so much for the compliments, the rating, and ❤️ ! It means a lot to me! ~ Z
Comment: Your work is so beautiful! You have pushed me into being more creative with little sparklies! Thank you for the goodies!
Response: You’re very welcome & thank you for the compliment! It’s kind of you to say. I love Wink of Stella, Spica & Glossy Accents! (Although. I think I went overboard on the latter mentioned, thinking it was a water scene, after all!) 😊 Thanks for the rating, comments & heart. ~ Z
Response: Yay! So glad to know it had arrived! Hope you found some things you enjoy. Thanks for rating. Surely, the next swap, #:29, has arrived by now, too? If not, please let me know, unless you live in a zone, which is extra slow to receive your mail. ~ Z
Comment: Hello there! Girl, I recvd your swap the other day but my eye was swollen shut! And then both eyes were sensitive to light. I was laying in bed with sunglasses on! Oh my gosh. So happy I did not have to go to the ER; a close call though. So, I was afaid to open my eyes this morning, the deal breaker, the decider and they are not light sensitive anymore yippy. Yea, thats some crazy stuffs. Anywho. wanna thank you for a kind, kind, envelope! You thought of my birthday! How kind is that! You sent a little envie with a Whale Shark! I just love those guys! And thank you for decorating the envelope! Something spilled on it? Which postcard reminded you that something spilled on it? The B&w one? The song lyrics? The icky meats, LOL? The Las Vegas lights?, The adorable rabbit and moon? LOL And you must tell me which one is the one you wanted to keep? OH, oh, oh I was laying on 2 postcards. LOL Theres a crater moon p.c. I betcha thats the one that looks like something spilled? Am I right? And the other is a large full moon. Still, whats the special one? I cant guess. LOL
Response: (You're very welcome!) Oh, my! I'm so glad your eyes are better! What caused it? Since your swap mentioned that you like "sucky" postcards, I gave you the giant moon over water, that looked like something was on it that was wiped off. Idk. It was given to me. I liked it, except for that, which can be seen at certain angles. The bunny looking at a moon, is the one that was in my favorites stack. I had two. I'm happy to share one with you! Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z
Comment: IWhat a fun trip you have put together -- we will have a great time! Fun fact: My next-door neighbor used to run the Rose Island Lighthouse. I could take you on an insider tour, hah!
Response: Very nice! Now if only they'd release teleporting for public use!!! Lol! I'd seriously plan on visiting with you and seeing all those interesting sites! I miss the ocean, so much!!! Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z
Comment: Cant wait to pass it along and those stickers were so cute!
Response: Glad it arrived safely. I'm excited to see your contributions, as well as, from the others when it arrives back to me. Hope you picked out some stickers you like. Thanks for the rating, comment and heart! ~ Z
Response: Yay! So glad to know it arrived! Whew! I was getting concerned, because our local small town PO had a change in personnel & some neighbors have reported strange stuff. So I'm thrilled to know you received it & enjoy what I put together for you! Thanks for the rating, comment & heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! I really like the postcard!
Response: Yay! So glad to know it made it! Whew! I was getting concerned, because our local small town PO had a change in personnel & some neighbors have reported strange stuff. So I'm thrilled to know you received & enjoy what I put together for you! Thanks for the rating, comment & heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for the card. I love roasted vegetables. Have a great day!
Response: You’re very welcome! Yeah, I thought it was so colorful & turns out, that fire grilled pizza from Natural Grocers, is the most authentic tasting for a frozen pizza that we’ve ever tasted so far. I like that it doesn’t have cheese on it, so that we can add our own, such as Rawmasan & /or Miyoko’s vegan Mozzarella during the last minute, just enough to warm it up. Yum! Otherwise, even though that brand tastes better than cows milk Mozzarella, if it’s cooked longer, it tends to evaporate; yet Miyoko’s brand is the best we’ve found so far! Delish! Thanks for the rating, comments and Heart. ~ Z
Comment: First, your envelope was *really* beautiful, I can tell you put a lot of work into it. The zentagle work was top notch! And second, thank you! I love the stuff you sent! the postcards, notecards, washi tape, all of it!
Response: You're So Very welcome! Thank you for the compliment! It means a lot to me! Any zentangle tips, you may have, feel free to share with me. What's your favorite designs? I'm glad to know that you're pleased & enjoy the other goodies, too. Thanks for the rating, comments & heart. 🤗 ~ Z
Comment: THANK YOU! I tend to send more than the requirements in swaps like this as well. I was recently gifted a ton of scrapbooking items so I've been spreading the wealth. I'm excited to try to tea you sent, I haven't had either one. The Star Wars pcs are always welcome in this house, the kids and I use them for birthday and holiday cards for my husband, thanks for helping us out!
Response: You're very welcome! I'm so glad to know it arrived well and that your enjoying the goodies I've sent you. Thank you for the rating, comments and heart! ~ Z
Comment: I love your handwriting. I print, no idea what type as my dad taught me.
Response: Thank you! So glad to know that you can read it well & love it! Sweet! My family said they have no idea where I got my handwriting, as I was doing it since I was 3 & no one else in my family writes like me. In fact, my mom is a lefty & I write with my right hand. My dad prints in all caps. Lol Guess then, it must have been from a former life, carried over, of extensive letter writing! 😄 Thanks for the rating, comments & Heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for all the fun postcards. I love these postcard soup swaps. I do a lot of the scavenger hunts for postcards swaps so some of these will be very useful. I actually really like the 'animals of the underground' postcard. I wonder if that was one of your not likes or duplicates :) And thank you for the washi samples and stamps. Have a great day!
Response: You're very welcome. Glad to know they arrived safely & you're enjoying them! The **Animals of the Underground** pc is from a book of postcards in that theme, which I purchased at Half Price Books many years ago. I thought it was a neat concept & like them, too. Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z
Comment: What a fun swap! I love how you decorated the envelope, though I should tell you, it did split open on one side, so I don't know if all the goodies made it... I did get a cute postcard, adorable thank you card with cat sticky notes inside (nice touch!), some washi tape samples, perfect for spring, a mini sheet of stickers and some washi sticker flakes, along with two cute mini envies and some paper punch confetti. So much great stuff! Thank [email protected]
Response: So glad to know it arrived; although, it's sad that it ripped & odd, too, considering I don't think I put anything sticky on the envelope, that might have caught on machinery. (Just doodles.) I reviewed my pictures. So it sounds like you received the entire contents, if the note card, with a personal message to you, was also in there? I'm so happy to know you had fun! Thanks for the rating, comments and the Heart! ~ Z
Comment: The way I think about it is don't stress the small stuff. In the long run what goes in in swap-bot is nice in the big picture it doesn't really matter. Though hearts might make you feel better alot of people dont really
Response: Ikr!?!?! We're all a bunch of silly people, aren't we? Thanks for sharing your insights, the rating, comments and Heart! 😇
Comment: I’m really enjoying these postcards, I’ve received from you, thanks so much.
Response: Really thankful that you received both the postcards. It was fun to give to you twice, in both swaps, so close together! I'm happy to know they arrived well & your pleased! Thanks for the rating, comments & hearts! ~ Z
Comment: OMG IM SO EXCITED TO TRY ALL OF THESE!!! That Tara reminds me of the Abulita hot coca disks! I might have to try that! Thank you so much!!! You went above and beyond!!!
Response: Yay!!! So glad to know that! Yeah, I thought the same thing about the Taza discs. It can be used either way. There's sooo much sugar in there, that I just nibble on a small triangle piece, at a time. The cocomels seem to be my family's new favorite, as it's difficult to find vegan caramels, which is silly, because it's really just burnt sugar! Lol. Thanks for the rating, comments and the heart. ~ Z
Comment: Hi ThrivingWell, II appreciate all the goodies you had sent me, yes it was double the swap requirements though it wasn't necessary. I really love all these cute kawaii envelopes with the tucked in goodies in it. Glad I don't live near a Daiso otherwise I'd need to rent a square tile because I'd be in there everyday. I also like this cute cultivate journal too. Anyways, thank you for brightening my day and hope to swap with you in the near future!. kizzlets
Response: So happy to hear that and know it arrived well! I love to give, to astonish others & brighten their days. That's funny, about renting a tile at Daiso! Glad you had fun. Thanks for the rating, comments and the heart. ~ Z
Comment: This pun notecard is amazing! This was a really fun swap to open. Using a water jug for washi samples is so clever! Thank you!
Response: Wow! Seems like that arrived fast. Glad you like it! Saw the note cards at our local tractor supply (feed store) & couldn't resist! Thanks for the compliment about the washi tape base. We have a lot of water jugs and I enjoy upcycling stuff. Thanks for the rating, comment and heart! ~ Z
Comment: Giiiiirlll! Thank you so much! What beautiful tape you picked out! Unfortunately the rain did get the envelope And there was a rip down one side BUT all washi was accounted for and the special tea you gave! Not sure if anything fell out or not but I am so very very grateful! Thank you! If I ever see your tea about I'll be sure to repay your kindness ❤️
Response: So happy to know you're pleased! I went back to look at the pic I took of your items, to be sure; there should be four separate upcycled water jug pieces, with a total of 14 washi samples. Hope they're all there! A repayment of the tea isn't necessary; I'm just filled with joy, knowing you're having a fun experience! Thanks for the rating, comments & the heart! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful washi tapes! I also really appreciate your up cycling creativity :)
Response: You're very welcome! I'm so glad to know they arrived well and you like them, plus, the upcycling! Yeah, I thought it's a great way to use up our distilled water jugs, especially since where we moved to the country, they don't have any recycling programs. I'm also using them for plant containers. 😊
Comment: Wow thank you so much for the teas, birthday card and Texas cards. Love them all! So kind of you for going the extra mile and noticing it was my birthday. I really appreciate it and I'm really thankful as a Covid birthday is pretty boring. The cards are all new to my collection. I was an exchange student at TCU back in 2007 so I'm quite familiar with the Dallas/ Ft Worth area.
Response: Yay! So glad to know it arrived well; that was quite a journey! You're very welcome! I'm so happy to know you appreciate it all! That's pretty neat that you were here in 2007! I used to live in the neighborhood right up the hill from the zoo, in the TCU area, many decades ago. Glad I could bring a little joy to your part of our world! Thanks for the rating, nice comments and heart! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful letter, it, really, made my day. The stationary, envelope and ink are very pretty. The tiny envelopes filled with fabulous surprises, delighted me. I love the washi tape and putting it on the plastic is a great idea. I've, suddenly, gotten very busy and it may take me a couple of weeks, but be looking for a letter from me. Beautiful Day
Response: Oh, yay! It arrived; so happy to know that and to learn you're delighted! It fills me with warm fuzzies! Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with it, for the rating and the heart! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you! I'll have to try the "Kick it up" Salsa mix!
Response: Yay, happy to know it arrived well! Yeah, it's my favorite way to quickly make salsa now, although, it does get better the longer the ingredients set, to get in tune with each other. 🙂 Thanks for the rating, comment and heart! ~ Z
Comment: thank you for the card! sadly it was torn on the side :( i couldnt read the stuff you wrote but I appreciate the card! have a lovely day!
Response: Oh, no! That's terrible! It was one of my favorite postcards & I thought you'd enjoy it because you like castles and Disney. Basically, the last part of that sentence, I mentioned on the pc & then asked if you've been to Disneyland often? **I'm sending another postcard!**
Thanks for the rating & communication. ~ Z
