Comment: Thank you so much Beth Can't wait to open my goodies. Grayson was so excited when he saw that he had mail & LOVED the $3, especially b/c it was all taped together. He thought that was very cool. Me too - tee hee! Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Hello again to you, too! =) I'm thrilled to find more GORGEOUS mail from you! Your decorated envelopes are almost too pretty to open. And I LOVE the postcards, washi samples, and stickers! Thank you so much!
Comment: Wow, what a beautiful envelope you created!!! It's awesome finding mail in the box that brings a big smile. =) I love the tag kit, too, and already know exactly which gift will get to sport it. Thank you and thanks for joining my swap!
Comment: What a festive envelope! Thank you for all the goodies inside. I laughed at the sticker that says, "I shaved my legs today." Seriously, ain't nobody got time for that. haha! You already have SNOW?! It's nearly 80 here! Happiest of holidays to you and yours.
Comment: Thank you so much for sending a card for my adopted soldier as well as one for me. It means a lot to me. Also thank you for the fun stickers and washi tape. I love all the goodies. I wish I could give you 2 hearts
Comment: Thank you for the resend :) Items received.
Response: I don't recall ever have gotten a message from you and I always send my swaps! Perhaps I even have proof, as I take pics of most all my swaps. I will pm you about this swap.
Update 10/24 - a resend has been mailed on 10/23. I am sorry the first swap never arrived. Thank you for your patience.
Comment: Thanks so much for both the bag & the extras! You package was so good, I can hardly wait for the next Pack n' Play to happen! (Of course, the standard for what I send myself just got raised, lol, but what's not to like about that?)
Comment: Hi Elizabeth
I got my swap from you this evening! OMG what a long journey. In fact I got 2 swaps today, the other one being from two months ago as well. As I mentioned, our postal service is very slow, things get stuck forever at customs.
I love all my goodies and I am so happy to have received it. I hope you get some time to relax as you sound very busy and tired.
Comment: Yes, I love this "randomness" ! My niece took off with some of my goodies though.... First to go was the sparkle tattoo, the cupcake card, and the stickers. She let me keep the coloring sheets, gift tags, die cuts and gold words. It was an envied full of fun- and we both thank You! Happy Swapping! Jen
Comment: Thanks for the nice extra PC's, Elizabeth! Nice envie and postage stamps too!!! :-) I think the P&P-pc actually had the be started yourself (the first section), but I don't think it is a problem you didn't ...
Comment: HEy Beth! Your swap arrived today and yes i do remember having a monopoly game and the cards looked just as your get out of jail for free card did! Oh it took me back to my childhood fond memories of my brothers playing with me and rigging the game such that when mom called me and i came back they had changed the entire game on me....It was all in great fun! I think our monoploly game was 1960s though...Interesting! Thanks for sending me this swap card!
Comment: Bravo on your first ever zine! Great job! Some copiers just do not cooperate in making your art the same size as the paper. I learned to make a border of washi tape, around the edges and between each page so the folding doesn't cut off the art. It makes your image size smaller, but saves having to trim your page. Thanks for all the extras too! We have whales, sea otters, sea lions, seals, sea birds of all kinds, Kodiak Bear, Sitka Black Tailed Deer, Beaver, Fox, Snowshoe Hares, Short-tailed weasels and little brown bats as well as eagles, ravens, crows and Magpies with tons of songbirds. And all the sea life including fishes, barnacles, whelks, crabs, sea stars, sea anemones, nudibranchs, snails, chitons, etc. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you, for the extras.. I don't have any of those washi. Great job on the ATC Masterboards... If I could give you one suggestion it would be to use a sturdier base. I already have plans for a few the ones you sent me, I added you on Instagram and will tag you when I finish
Comment: Thank you so much for this great swap! I looked at the goodies before I read the letter and I thought "oh, look at this awesome doodle envelope" then you wrote about the doodle envelope in the note. Hah :) Thanks for the lovely goodies, and I'm with you on the silver jewelry only!
Comment: Oh my gosh thank you so much! ! I thought it was sooo lovely and kept staring at it. My mum is also on swapbot(woolers) and when she came back she was ooohing and ahhing at the envelope cover to hahaha! ! How did you do it! ? Also thank you sooo much for the extras especially the unicorn! ! Hope you have a great day! â¤â¤â¤â¤
Comment: BETH!!!!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!! The hubs is going to take the Patriots sticker and put it on his window at work, thank you!! And I LOVED the cool write on notecard- That is going straight into my smashbook (your note was so lovely I had to save it) and thank you for making my happy mail so happy. Many hearts!!
Comment: thanks so much for the awesome fun paper,I love it and the clear envelope was great! The lady that runs our post office is always amazed by the mail I receive. thanks for making this swap special :)
Comment: I think half the fun of swapping is figuring a way to get into the envie, yes it was a mystery trying to get into yours lol, but once I got into it everything you sent was great!! Thank you for a great swap!!
Comment: First I just have to tell you that I LOVE the note you included (so much fun!) and would like to make my own version for upcoming swaps (this was my first month participating) if that's okay with you. It was fun to see what you're up to. I got super-excited for you when you mentioned tapping the maple tree, as that's something I've always wanted to do myself. Thanks for including a handmade treat and some goodies for my own crafting (I LOVE the heart die-cuts/punches and don't have any way to make my own right now), as well as the lovely paper to write a letter to my mom. Have a good week :)
Comment: Hi Elizabeth, thank you so much for the beautiful embellishments, I loved them all and they have given me inspiration for making my own embellishments. I really enjoy seeing other peoples work xx

Comment: ELIZABETH!!! Thank you so much! You will not know the excitement I experienced opening your letter and going through all the goodies. I loved the "Today, In History..."

Comment: What a super cute stationery set. I never thought to look at TJ Maxx for things like that.
Response: oh-ehm-ghee.. you HAVE to check out their home section - mine has a whole aisle with journals, stationery and other planner and crafty things. Sometimes I find Martha Stewart punches- ON CLEARANCE... its insane!
Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful goodies. Love everything. I'm going to try to make a flip book when the kids go back to school. I have two special needs children and its hard to sit down and work on one. I'm not very good at them and it takes me a long time to make one. Thanks again.
Comment: Another swap ;-) thank you! -- your flowers never came up, sorry to say... :-(, waited for them a loong time - this year seems t be a bit strange for the garden? My tomatoes for example are all way too small for this time of the year & I have heard from others a slow growth too... -- not sure about my summer, trying frantically to set up another treatment round before the onset of our main/high holidays! -- the project life cards,I never really used them so far :) any tipps? :) do you use them for scrapbooking too? :)
Comment: Oh Elizabeth, what a sweet little package from you! I love, love, love the personalized swap cards. Never saw any so beautiful before. Also love the handmade envie and the cool postage stamps! Thank you for all the thought and work you put into this! Almost too pretty to send out! You are truly an artist! :)
Response: So glad you are enjoying them! I always try and make my outgoing mail fun for everyone who gets to see it. I also love using a variety of postage stamps, if I can.
Comment: Thank you for this incredibly generous swap! I love all the supplies you sent and the extras! Made me smile! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: YAY! You would have been horrified if I sent what I had prepared at first, for this swap - It was PRIMARILY PURPLE! lol. I quickly changed my tune when I saw you were allergic, lol. Glad my re-thought on it made you smile!
Comment: BETH! I just loved receiving your package today. It was thoughtful of you to send me stationery papers. They are so cute. Also, this kitty pen is DA BOMB ðŸ’¥, LOL. I'm so excited to write new letters with this pen and stationery. Thanks
Comment: Elizabeth, thank you so much for the covered bridge and lighthouse postcards. I will be sending Lora Ann's postcards of in the next round. I wish I could have given you more than one heart for being so kind. Shirley
Comment: Hi, Elizabeth. Thank you for the friendship sheets you sent me. It was very kind of you to include a few extras as well. Thank you for participating in my swap. And I hope you enjoy the 4th of July weekend! :D
Comment: I was so excited to open up my mail!!! The envie is so creative. I'll have to steal that idea ðŸ˜‹ I'm so lucky I got you! You really put a lot of nice goodies to use inside. I love the pencil case, pens, and magnetic paper clip holder! Nice job! Hope we get to see each other in swap land againðŸ’“
Response: Glad you liked it! I have such fun with this swap.
Comment: wow...I think it took me as long to translate your letter as it did to write mine...got easier as I progressed. So sad that your drum broke. My daughter's good drum that I gifted her, had something heavy fall on top of it and slice the skin...I will be taking care of fixing that this year. We start our community drum circles on the beach in a few weeks...the children love it. Thanks for everything.
PS...loved the decorated envelope...fun touch.
Comment: Hello again Elizabeth! I rec'd your PC on June 22, 2016. Yes, I have been to North Conway shopping a couple of times - it's a great trip. The PC is beautiful - Fall is my favourite time of year. Thanks!
Comment: Hey Elizabeth,
It's always a fun treat receiving swaps from you(: Just loved your clear envelope with the patterned envelope inside! What a fun dimension it added to a happy mail day-I don't think I could ever tire of such a cute envelope idea! ðŸ’• Thanks for the stickers and books/sheets! Looking forward to signing and getting them on their way.
Comment: Thanks for hosting this swap! Its really great to get things like this especially since I was flaked in the last couple embellishment swaps I was in. I love the style and colors of the embellishments-clever ideas and clever packaging in the mail. Thanks for sharing such lovely things with me-I really appreciate it!
Response: So happy thy got there safe and sound. I always try and make the outside as fun as the inside, and I am glad you enjoyed the style.
Comment: Thank you very much for the wonderful message and beautiful sky blue scarf. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness! :)
The mailman must had known to wait for both of your 'FFQS - notecard' to arrive before delivering them all to me on same day! :}
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful note and pack of items (tea, notecards & recipe!). I wish more than one hearts can be given! You deserve many hearts! :)
Coincidentally, another partner also recommended the same recipe. It must be real yum! Panini exists in some cafes here, but I've yet to come across any which has goat cheese (it's not common here).
Response: Im happy it all got there! TY for the heart, I, myself, have never eaten a panini, lol.
Comment: I can not say enough about the flip book you sent me...I love love love it and id give it more than one star if I could...it is by far one of my favorites that I have ever received...the color, all the flips, and of coarse the beautiful butterflies...esp the stationary....Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to m ake me such a beautiful flip book letter...thanks again xxooxxoo

Comment: This was such a great package! It is so funny, we picked several of the same things! It was great to receive things I'd picked and sent to someone else. Thanks esp. for the extras! I will try the sticker bag swap!
Response: Im happy you were pleases with it. There are just some things that HAVE to go into those kits, right? lol. The sticker bag swaps are fun! you get immediate gratification with picking stickers when you get the bag and then a few months to a year later, POOF! Your bag comes home with a bunch of different stickers in it. The international ones are cool!
Comment: I was so excited to get my goodies at work today! It was a great pick me up. I love, love love the owl sharpener. The pink glitter pouch is great! I will have to fight my granddaughter for it. :)
Response: Glad you had a fun time with it. I loved shopping for it and already went and made a round 2, and have shopped and packed it already, lol.
Comment: Thanks for the letter! It was really fun to decode. It did take me a long time to write the one I sent, until I got the hang of it. Now I have nearly memorized the code, since I had to decode your letter.
Thank you for the practice.
Response: TY for the rating. I loved this swap, and went and joined the #2. I even made a scrappy cypher swap to go along with the secret code letters, lol
Comment: Thank you! As always, love what you sent. ðŸ˜€ Where do you get your cute envelopes?
Response: YAY! always trying to find something new, different and exciting for YOUR swaps, since we are partnered so often, lol. As to the envies.. Michael's, for the string wrap closure ones. found them in the clearance section.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful flip book. I love all the butterflies! Your embellishments are awesome. I've watched so many YouTube videos on making them. I've tried a few, but yours are great ðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œ
Response: SO glad you liked it! Hope you have fun using all the things i put in there.
Comment: Love, love, love! I keep looking at it and finding something else I didn't notice! Your the first NH crafter I've swapped with! I go to the Conway Village a couple of times each year. I like to go to the big outdoor craft fair. And I buy these yummy smelling candles from an eccentric lady with long blonde/white hair in a store called "Simply Primitive." I love the shops on that strip. I live right between Concord and Manchester. Ever been? BTW, I make junk journals too! Check out my Instagram Mindy82671.
Response: YAY! So glad you enjoyed it. The craft fairs here are AMAZING.. i have been thru your town on my way south a couple times, lol ima go follow you on IG right meow!
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the handmade stationery! I don't knots if I can bring myself to use it!
Response: I made it with homemade alcohol ink sprayers - made from dollar tree markers and some rubbing alcohol ( just bust open the maker and take out the nib and core & drop it in your spayer pour in alcohol, and you have a diy alcohol ink spray! I used the heidi swapp gold shine for the splatter on it. Now you can make you own rainbow of handmade stationey!

She was born in Poland, and came here when she was very young We met when she was about 6 and I have known her for about 25 years, now. She travels to Poland often to visit family, and brings those beautiful cards back with her. I knew she would have something you would enjoy.
Comment: Thanks you for your fun mail-loved it all. Cute Iittle pocket and goodies and I love that you make N&N FBs. Don't find people who do that often these days. Super refreshing. Looking forward to signing and passing everything along.

Comment: Another awesome happy mail! Did my profile say I love steampunk? Thank you so much! I absolutely love the PL "beginnings".
Response: Yeppers, it does say ya like it, anyway, lol. The PL starters sorta help you decide where to go, dont they, lol. Have you made the first one yet? are you ADDICTED? lol, have you heard of flip books? /smh those will gitcha, too. lol
Comment: btbeth, I love everything. The package was so pretty and fun to unwrap. The tags are great and I like the extra ones. The shaving cream always makes beautiful designs. Thanks for the fibers, too. Great swapping with you.
Response: Awesome!! Im so happy you enjoyed your little "gift". lol. Happy crafting, Lady!
Comment: Wow! What an awesome "surprise". This is the first notecard folio I've ever received, well even owned. What a great treat! I love the colors, all the notecards, and the little pieces. Thank you so much!!!!!
Response: YAY! Im glad that you are enjoying it! I thought it would be neat for you to be able to mix and match the bases with the journaling cards to create the cards YOU want to send. Have fun!
Comment: I come home from an icky day at work and find your awesome Flipbook! What an uplifter! It's so creative...to make a themed Flipbook like that. I would never have thought about that. What an idea for future ones! Thank you so much for all the goodies! You really did too much! I can definitely use all of it. You are so thoughtful! I'll be keeping in touch! :)
Response: So happy you enjoyed it, love. I had a blast making it for ya! Thanks for an AWESOME swap!
Comment: Wow, thank you for the PL "base"! It certainly does give me a hands on jumping off point for something fun. It will be great to get this group going and getting to know one another through our quick turnaround (and perhaps some longer) swaps. ;)
Response: LOL, GOOD, now get to making that PL, lol! You will have to let me know how you do!
Comment: OMG!! I just got home after I've been traveling the past week & found your amazing package! The FBs are so cute and I absolutely adore the target stationary set! You have no idea how happy you just made me! If I could I would rate you a heart for each item you included, so here they are â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Awesome! Sooo glad it made it there safe and sound. I hated to open the stationery set box but i figured that was the easiest way to send everything. and get it all there in good shape. So happy that you are happy, too! Have fun with everything!
Comment: I received your fun and cheerful pocket letter in the mail today. Thank you! It's beautiful with the pretty color theme, paper piecing, and cute stamps! Reminded me how much I like macaroons and cupcakes, especially. Thanks for the generous goodies. I'll enjoy using the cut-outs and stickers for my planner, art journal, and pocket letters. Love the little note pads, bling clips, and the cute stringed candy, as well as the Chocolate milk single. Great idea. Oh, all the donuts and ice cream all look delish. Thanks Again!
Comment: Oh what a delightful swap! Thank you for the great notecards, and I love the beautiful stickers and those sheets of note paper and "todo lists". Thank you for joining my swap, I look forward to having you join more of my swaps in the future.
I have a swap, "Just to Say Hello" for swappers to use. The nice notecards they receive in this swap. Happy swapping!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed everything. TY for hosting!
Comment: I wish we had a "love it" option!!
This was an amazing swap and I was shocked at the details (from my profile) you worked into the piece!!! I absolutely love it from the bead colors to every charm you added. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the extra goodies too.
Response: Im so glad you enjoyed it. I know it was a senders choice, butIi wanted to make it for YOU not for ME, lol. (although i would have kept it, it was so darn pretty!) Thank you for the sweet sentiments about it, and I'm also happy you enjoyed the extra bits. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: I am in awe of your atc. Thank you so much for sharing your time, talent and materials with me. It is the first atc I have received. I will treasure it and look to it for artistic inspiration. It will keep watch over my creative space as my new talisman and most favorite art piece! And thank you for all the extra fun bits, too. Such a lovely envelope of "wonder" indeed!
Response: Super happy you enjoyed it! Im glad to know you will find it inspirational <3 happy swapping!
Comment: thank you so much for your help and patience. I love your homemade stationery. Just beautiful. Did you make the paper itself? I love the feel of the paper too :) Have a great weekend :)
Response: You are more than welcome, love. Glad you are enjoying the sets I made. Its actualy regular copy paper ( i use that weight becaue it can withstand the "beating" i do to it. I stain it with homemade alcohol ink a few times and dry it in between colors, so it needs to be somewhat rugged paper)
Comment: So happy to meet someone nearby!! My son lives in Parsonsfield (Keiser Falls) My nephew was a North Conway cop and his wife teaches at the Hight School. Small world!
Response: Who is your nephew? I probably know him & I wonder if any of my sons have your niece in law as a teacher, lol. Oh and I LOVE Kezar Falls! I go there about 2 times a month or so. (I used to live in Stow, right by Kezar Lake - and yes Stephen King is as rude as some folks say he is....)
Comment: Hi Beth, Thanks for the beautiful Glen Ellis Falls postcard, liked how you explained the flow of the water. I enjoyed reading your profile, you certainly keep busy. Thanks again for the great postcard and take care, Judy
Response: Idle hands, right? lol. Im glad you enjoyed the post card. Hope to swap again, soon!
Comment: This came with a 1.56 postage due. I think because it was thicker than 1/4". Thank you so much -- love how you upscaled the card. Looking forward to tea time tonight!
Response: I am so sorry! I brought it to the P.O and they affixed some postage. It must have come loose in shipment. I still have the receipt. I will see if I can do something about that for you. edited on 5/22/16~ Make up package with postage repaid was sent and was confirmed as received.
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty stamped PC. Also, I was so excited to get the PC from North Conway! I spend 10 weeks in Sweden, ME when I was in college one summer and I was super psyched to see a PC from a town I spent a lot of time in way back then! Thanks again! Perfect card!
Response: I grew UP near there, in Stow, Maine! Small small world, huh?!
Comment: 1000 hearts to you!!! Now that I'm back from vacation and actually have time to write a proper "thank you" - THANK YOU. You went above and beyond with this swap! I love everything and the numerous little pkgs of paper craftiness :) AND taking the effort to send me a 2nd card with two Boston Bruins decals - you are AWESOME. Hugs and Hearts to you - have a fantastic day.
Response: #Bruins lol. Glad you got it, and have fun on vacation!
