Comment: What an awesome envelope to unpack - love everything, especially the ATC. The playing card is great, it's going in my junk journal I have for swaps. Love the note card too! Wish I could give you more than 1 heart :)
Comment: Right in time! (To join round 9!) Mind? Of course not! In fact, this book sounds more fun than I have come accross in a while ... I'm going to search it NOW! Is that PC from "GoodNight stories for Rebel girls"? Thanks for the pretty paper, I appreciate nice paper even though I do not do "formal" layering papercrafts :)
Response: Love swapping with you, RooBaRoo...thank you for the heart! I have a new-ish group, maybe you’d like to join? I can’t figure out how to invite people yet...it’s called International Swapping Fun. Please join if you’d like!
Comment: Oh what fun... I love swapping and receiving from you..... I can't wait to add to your postcard....I already have ideas..... so much potential..... thanks for the extras.... and big hugs......
Response: I love swapping with you too! I’ve slowed down a bit due to life’s craziness, but I’m getting back into things now. I still have a collaboration card of yours, or it could be a pass and paste, I’m not sure. I couldn’t send it because I got you as a partner, then I didn’t join for awhile, but don’t worry, I will get it sent along! (It’s the one with the blue bird.)
Comment: Chrissy, I can't give you enough hearts for this incredible journal - for everything you shared with me. I'll treasure the picture of your mum, and my heart to yours for your loss. I'm here of ever you need a shoulder or ear, I'm here. The journal is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for this...and for being part of this group. xoxoxoxo
Comment: Love your fine details..keeping the cards together and your homemade envelope. Thank you for such a fine swap. And the extras notecards and life is good stationary is PERFECT. Enjoy Easter. May the bunny bring you lots of chocolates! ---Michelle
Comment: Late with good communication. I'm glad you did this on such nice paper to work on - makes it fun. Thanks for the extras - is St. Sebastian a favorite? I see him differently since reading Mishima.
Comment: Chrissy, thank you so much for the wonderful package of goodies you sent for this swap! The beach items were much appreciated, as were the vintage photos and advertisements. The handmade Babar envelope is adorable, and the turkey card was hilarious! You obviously had checked my profile when you were putting this together and I really appreciate you taking the time to do that! Great swap!! I hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks again!
Comment: Chrissy, thank you for an amazing package of journal fodder! You had everything organized so beautifully, it was like opening a series of gifts! My absolute favorite item is that sweet Babar envelope (I think it's Babar) -- SO cute. I really appreciate all you sent and will enjoy using it all!
Comment: hi and thanks for the beautifully decorated envelope and the goodies on the inside.... I feel like we have become good friends with all the trading we have been doing.... Big hugs and many hearts.....
Comment: Thank you so much for this swap! I got the envie with the beautiful stamps today... ♥♥♥ The tag you made is super cute - and the Mod Podge finish gives it a very fine look. I really like the Valentine theme you chose (the little girl is sooo cute!). We celebrate it here in Germany a little bit. I get flowers from my hubby every year. One year he even sent a giant bouquet to my office at work! :D And thank you for the kitty extras! :D They are adorable!
Comment: Hello Chrissy! Received the book card, it will be forwarded :) Thanks for actually writing, that's so rare in swaps! I'll definitely take your reco for the Princess bride - wow, from 10 std!! Thanks for the extras, the owl card I really like, & yes, my daughter does like Minnnie Mouse! i hope you had a great time with your awesome family at the Great Wolf Lodge !!
Comment: Awww. Lovely card. Thank you so much. Thanks too for the little extras and the note. I'll look into the book you mentioned. I love short stories especially science fiction. The card you painted on is really cool. What is the theme of that deck? All around wonderful. THanks again!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful handmade card and letter! It sounds like we both have some of the same Christmas traditions :-) Also I LOVE the hymnal pages! These will be added to my December Daily! Again thanks for everything and wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
Response: You're very welcome, Merry Christmas to you and your family as well! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Your journal was a lot more than I expected! I hope my partner was not disappointed. I am worried, since she hasn't rated me yet. LOL! Thanks for taking the time to make a fun journal! I feel like I should send it back. That's the only thing I hate about making journals; they feel so personal. Happy swapping and have a wonderful December!!
Response: Oh, good, I'm so glad you liked it! I loved putting it together for you. Thank you so much for the heart, and you have a wonderful December too!
Comment: I always get the best swap partners!! Beautiful envelope great extras ( love the green bakers twine!) and four of the nicest owls ever... each individual card was so great and especially appreciated the reveal of each "3" the burnt one ! Great set and thanks very much
Response: â¤ï¸Thank you so much for the heart! And I'm so glad you're not sorry to see my name as your swap partner repeatedly! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: (((CHRISSY!!)))) Oh my word!!! Not only are the 3 ATC's beyond gorgeous, but the story behind them is priceless!! I loved going to the pumpkin patch when my son was little, and he, too would giggle like crazy at the animals - what a precious moment you have shared with me through your beautiful pictures. Thank you so so much! And the extras - I LOVE the Bible cards, and the note card is beyond precious - it looks vintage with the sweet puppies - this is going to be turned into a deco :) Wonderful swap partner!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed my swap...hopefully we get to swap together again soon!
Comment: I LOVE all of these ATC's. Had the longest day of work, came home, got the mail and what a wonderful surprise. The card they were in is so beautiful, it was packaged so nice and I love your designs, such great art work. Thanks for a great swap!!! Thank you or the extra card as well.
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and the heart! I'm so glad you liked what I sent! I hope to swap with you again in the future!
Comment: What a gorgeous book themed PL Chrissy! I can't believe you've only made a couple! I really love how you used classic kids books covers for the back of the pl, and all the great little envelopes and reading related quotes. Sending you a PM with my answers for the tag and the book list!
Response: Ahhh....thank you so much! I will message you back the answers to the tag.
Comment: Chrissy... what a nice package of wonderful! Loved the jam finish... such fun opening all the little lovely envelopes ... just a great job on the aces... each so different and special all the little pieces of collage ... thanks for the note card and envelope... great swap!
Response: Yay! So glad you liked them. I had a slight accidental crisis with them, and was worried that you wouldn't care for them. I had a glass of water on my craft table to clean paintbrushes, and i knocked it over, drenching the cards! I dried them off, fixed them up and decided it added to the vintage, distressed look, so I'm so glad you like them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: thank you so much. i love it. i like pennsylvania because i spend one year as an exchange student in center valley, near allentown/ emmaus.
and my surname is Penn, like the founder of PA. greetings isa
Comment: Thanks for the bright and beautiful yellow ATC! I love the beautiful home made envelope too! We have had a record-cold spring so far, with high waves and winds. Hope it settles down soon. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: So glad you liked it! I just found out that there is a possibility that I might be visiting Alaska in August...nothing definite yet, but we might be traveling with our son and DIL to visit her father. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: First of all, let me just say that I loved reading your letter. I enjoyed getting to know a little bit about you, and I appreciate you sharing your natural health resources and your affinity with Burdock (I'm definitely going to look into it based on your recommendation). The healthy gut thing really hits home due to my personal experience, lifelong medical history and related surgeries and treatments-- I could not possibly agree more. As for the gifts you sent me, they're simply lovely. I love bookplate quote and the kindness quote--I have a card with that quote in my front entry. I look forward to using the atc backgrounds in some upcoming pocket letters :) Thank you.
Have a nice day and a beautiful month of May. â™¥
Response: Aww...thanks! I love discussing natural health stuff with anybody who will listen, and sometimes I make people listen when they don't really want to! ðŸ˜„ I'm so glad you enjoyed your swap from me, and I look forward to swapping with you again sometime soon! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: What a very nice envelope of goodies I got today. I have never tried the tea you sent, will try it after supper tonight. Love the note cards and the stationary you sent.---all adorable. Thank you so very much.
Response: Thank you for the heart...I'm so glad you liked what I sent! Every time I see your username, I feel like you are a kindred spirit!
Comment: Thank you for such a fun filled envie -- Love the little bird memo sheets! And thankyou for your sweet note -- sometimes feels like emptying the ocean with a thimble, but I just keep doing it!
Response: I get what you mean about the thimble for sure! I'm glad you liked what I sent, thank you for the heart!
Comment: I love the Prince Harry card - love Prince Harry! As the spare, he's so much more down-to-earth and laid back than his brother. Very nice card. And I love the postcard, too! It's great! Thanks for sending!
Response: I love Prince Harry too! So glad you liked the card, and thank you for the heart!
Comment: I'm interested in E-Cubed, I will look Pam Grout up for sure. Her rule of committing to discuss only what is going right could change a lot of outlooks I think if more people went on with that outlook. = )
Response: Yes, you're so right! Lots more people would have a much better outlook if they committed to just discussing what was right. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: You really read some interesting books! It sounds like Anthony William's "Spirit" might be Google, though, hahaha. I especially like the idea of the E-Cubed book--maybe it would be nice to follow those ground rules? I know I always tend to lean towards the negative. I also like the experiment you mention--it reminds me of learning a new word, and then finding that word EVERYWHERE suddenly.
In regards to my immigrating...I moved to be with my wife! It's actually a lot easier than one would think (as long as you're married or working, anyway) to establish residence. It's a lot of very expensive paperwork and patience, but in the end, the process goes really smoothly because of all the kind people who just want to help you out!
Thank you for the great book list!
Response: Ha ha...I think you're right about his "Spirit" being Google! I'm glad to hear that your immigrating wasn't too difficult for you. Thank you so much for the heart, and I look forward to swapping with you again sometime soon!
Comment: What a wonderful swap. Thank-you. It is exactly perfect for ME. Love the bird writing paper, the kitty stickers, beautiful notecard and to top it off, one of your handmade note-cards. I will place this one on a shelf for display in my "swap-penpal room". Again, thank-you so very much for brightening my day.
Response: I am so glad I sent you something you liked!

Response: Thank you, Raven! I'm so glad you enjoyed the swap! Hope to swap with you again soon!
Comment: Hi Chrissy. Thank you for communicating about the slight delay and for the really lovely ATC's. I think I will have to make something to send for the next round =o) I loved your chatty note and think we will have to plan a RV trip for the near future. Thank you!
Response: Thank you, Jeanette!! So glad you liked the ATC's I sent. I appreciate the heart and hope to swap with you again soon!
Comment: This was a beautifuly put together swap and a real pleasure to open! And I love this little house so, so much!! I already added it to my neighborhood and it looks terrific! Thank you too for the sweet extras, that little notepad will indeed make adorable "tiny mail"! Very happy mail today, thank you!
Response: Thank you for your kind words and a heart! Hope to swap with you again soon!
Comment: What a lovely ATC, and an even lovelier story! May J. and S. always be at your side, wherever you go :) Thanks so much for participating, and for all the thought and heart that went into the swap.
Comment: Thank you for the great list! We have a lot of the same book interests. I forgot I had started the Inheritance Cycle. You've inspired me to finish book 4. And thanks for the extra sparkly - love it! Have a wonderful holiday season - happy reading!
Response: You're welcome! Thank you for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you, your format for this list was lovely and easy to read. I liked your list, I found some I had read, and some I have on my bookshelves to read. Thank you for all the extras, those playing cards are so unique, they are keepers!
Response: You're welcome! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: The list looks exciting. I've read a few already and liked them - and only one that I didn't like. The Hunger Games trilogy is on my to read list already. And I saw a few Christian books in your list. So I'm very excited to check out other books on your list as well.
Response: This was a fun swap, I'm glad you saw some titles that interested you! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi Chrissy! Thanks for the lovely postcard of Amish Country! I have driven through the area many times, but have never stopped to explore! I don't live 'too' far from you in the Chicago area! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Valerie
Response: Hi Valerie! I used to live in the Chicago area too--south suburbs for about 10 years. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: You deserve a "heart" for the fabulous "Abraham Lincoln" postage stamp as old lady with pigeons ATC. Excellent ATC! I really loved it. Hope you enjoy making ATCs & will make more. Thank you for the extras you sent also. The interesting blue confetti I will use for creating "snow crystals," as I plan to make some Christmas "Icicles" this year. Happy November to you! Hope we meet up again in a future ATC swap.
Response: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm so glad you liked the ATC, and I hope to swap with you again too!
Comment: Chrissy, I got my envie yesterday..Thank you so much for the notecards I love them all. I was so excited when I saw the glassine bags..yaaaaay. Thanks so much. Outlander...love, love, love. I've read through most of the series 3+ times. I started watching the series(really like what I saw), but have a toddler so I am easily distracted...lol. One of these days I'll have an "outlander marathon" to catch up. I don't know how it could be done...but wouldn't an Outlander swap be so much fun?? Happy Swapping girl. =)
Response: You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked what I sent! An Outlander swap would be amazing...maybe a handmade postcard or ATC....hmmmmm...
Comment: I think it's safe to say that I LOVE this sweet ATC...you can never go wrong with birds and sheet music (particularly the TH tissue!)...it's beautiful. Thank you so much for sending such a lovely piece of art!
Response: You're welcome! Thank you for the kind words and rating!
Comment: A little tough to read, because of how spacing works in private messages, but all the questions answered :-) I've heard mixed opinions about the book you read. I liked the movie, but is seems that others who liked the movie didn't like the book as much because there isn't much Julia Child content. So you're definitely not alone in your opinions! I'm glad you found things to like about the book. And thanks for your thoughts about the genre as well.
Comment: Thank you! This is another book that I've wanted to read, but somehow never did. I've also seen the film & enjoyed it, but it sounds like the actors breathed more life into the film than was in the book.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely pocket letter!! I really enjoy reading your letter, too. I don't travel much since my kids are still too young (9 months and 3.5years), but we tried to go back to Taiwan once a 1.5 years to visit family. `
Comment: Thanks for letting me learn about you! You're so sweet! I'll write you back but I'm so behind on letters. I'm going to try getting caught up this week or the next. Thank you for making my day. It took me a while to read this letter due to personal issues, but it came at just the right moment. i know I'm going to just love you, aww heck, I'll write you now!!
Comment: I loved everything I received in my package for this swap!! Thank you so much! And the "profile surprise" made me smile and definitely a happy surprise!! You deserve extra stars! Thanks for your sweet kindness!! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ Thank you for sending the items you accidentally left out of original package. I wasn't expecting that ðŸ’œ
Comment: OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS SAKES ALIVE! (yes, I'm shouting) This was an awesome package. Completely captured the attention of my post office clerks (and they are rarely surprised by anything I receive anymore) and since I had to go to the counter to claim it, I heard all about how jealous the off duty clerks would be to learn I'd claimed it in their absence. And that was before I'd opened it. You rock! Thank you.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC, note, and handmade envelope. Funny enough - I put butterflies on my packing tape ATC too. Thanks for the show recommendation. I've heard good things about it, so I will track it down. :)
Comment: Chrissy--thanks for the beautiful ATC. You chose an ideal printed paper for stamping on it--a small pattern and somewhat muted and neutral in color. And the stamp showed up very nicely on the paper. The other additions and their spacing work very well, I think, with just enough extras but not over-done. I hope you are proud of your work and its result on this ATC! Thanks so much!
Comment: Thanks for being game and doing the swap -- Some days a single sentence was your paragraph which is a little lame--but you did it. I hope it helps you understand more about why Thomas Mann said, "Writers work harder at writing than anyone else." That's what makes them writers.
Response: Thanks for hosting this swap, I really did enjoy the challenge!
Comment: Wow! I'm still pouring over the book you made! This was such a fun challenge to do (and receive). It pushed me to start a secondary blog where I'm putting a picture or two a day up.
I love the images you chose to share. Toddler's hat for you! Sunset! Amish buggy - I better stop or I'll list all 31!
Thank you for a peek into your life!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed it!!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Dear Chrissy! What a wonderful swap arrived to me last week! Thank you so much, I enjoyed looking at every bites and interesting parts from your life! I 've learned that your life is very different to mine, so everything was really interesting to see. I love your Christmas photo, thanks for sharing with me this too :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! It is very interesting to see different parts of our swap partner's life isn't it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for your pretty ATC and all the extras. I enjoyed reading your lovely note. What a small world! I will PM you as I have questions about school (if you don't mind). Take care.
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you like it...I read your PM and I'll PM you back soon!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! When I first looked at it I thought that it was from the 'Tearing' swap as the edges looked torn. But then I looked closed and the way you did the border gave it this cool effect! I love it :)
Response: You're welcome!! I'm so glad you liked it, and thank you for the heart!
Comment: Wow what a wonderful and generous assortment of ephemera you sent! Some pieces have already found their way into my mail art. I just love the vintage birthday postcard. Such a fun envie, too, with its random cut outs and quotes. Thank you for a terrific swap. One heart isn't enough!
Response: Thank you for your kind words! I'm so glad you liked what I sent!!
Comment: LOL "A" wonderful selection of goodies! Congrats on doing so well with a tough to find letter. You are an angel for working so hard to make this "A" great swap (sorry had to get a pun in there). The necklace is lovely. Thanks so much! ; )
Response: Yay! So glad you liked the things I sent! It was fun...hope to swap with you again soon!
I LOVE THIS SWAP SO MUCH!! It really makes swapping so much more personal to get a piece of your swap partners life like this!!! This swap has made me want to know you better so I wanna know if you would like to become postcard or e-pals? (I fail at long handwritten letters, I'll be honest LOL!!) In your photos it seems we have much in common! I am heavily in the reenactment community - both medieval as well as WWII (more so WWII these days) I also love trekking about the wilds of the east coast with my family -nature, natural, organics = all me!
Thank you for the cute Mickey squares! I will definitely be putting them to good use! I love the quote & post card and the stickers are adorable too!
Thank you for sharing a view into your life with me! I am planning to host a photo swap - I'll inbox you with that info!!
Hugs and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! <3
Response: Yes! I'd love to be postcard and e-pals...that would be do much fun! We do seem like we have a lot in common!
Comment: Oh my gosh! The penguin tag is so adorable :D my son took it away from me and kissed it and tucked it into a blanket :3 I loooove it! And thank you so much for the thoughtful extras. I'm sending you another tag because I loved yours so much. <3
Response: I'm so glad you and your son liked it! Thank you for the heart! You are very kind!
Comment: Wow! Your tags are AMAZING! I'm going to use them on my best friends' gifts this year :) I'm giving them gift baskets, and your tags are perfect. Thank you so much for sending three - the directions were a bit confusing to me as well. And thank you for the extras - super cool :)
Response: Yay! So glad you liked them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Chrissy, I soooo LOVE what you have sent to me for this swap. ... especially the little card with the verse on it. God is so good!! ... even (particularly) during the trials!!! Thank you. Bless you Chrissy.
Comment: i am really exhausted too! i hope you enjoy your camping trip! i'll be thinking of you, have a great time. and try and get some r&r. :) thank you for explaining the techniques you used for the beautiful atc, i really enjoyed reading it and it was just that little bit extra that made this swap enjoyable for me.
Response: You're welcome! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the cute stickers and great assortment of items sent for this swap!
My weather recently is hot & humid with the occasional rain and I longed for snow, but that's because I won't ever be getting them here lol! Do keep yourself warm & cozy on such chilly days! :D
Response: You're welcome! I'm trying to stay warm...it's going to be a LONG winter! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you! The journal pages are absolutely amazing! I had never done a journal swap before, so seeing what you created has given me inspiration for the next swap. There are a couple movies on your list that I want to watch. Thank you again! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: Thank you for the kind words and the heart!
Comment: wow, you hand wrote. I typed as my hands don't do good writing any more. I love how you decorated your pages. mine are so plain compared but do hope you like mine as much as I love yours. I plan to try the fall recipes as soon as I get the ingredients. Will try the salsa next supper. blessings
Response: Your pages were a joy to read! Thank you and I hope you have a happy thanksgiving!
Comment: This was an amazing envelope to delve into...a beautiful ATC (I think you made it just for me, knowing how I love roosters!), and so many fabulous extras. Thank you so, so much for being a truly wonderful swap partner!
Response: Oh, you are so welcome! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: you take so much pride in your swaps and it really shows off. your envelope is really nice and pretty, high quality & the extras you included are lovely. such a small swap but you somehow managed to make it very special.
Comment: What a great package!!! Can't believe we have so much in common! The Green Day quote was the first thing I saw and it just blew me away. And "The Walking Dead" cards - Daryl is my absolute FAVE! The postcards are perfect, too. Thanks for such a great swap! :)
Response: Awesome! I'm so glad you liked it! I love Green Day...the quote was a last-minute addition! And Daryl is my favorite too...if he ever dies, I will quit watching!
Comment: Thanks for the ATC Bag! I'm choosing one of your ATCs. I really like your "spring" with the birds and blue/brown! Very nice!! Thanks for the little note and stickers too! Have a wonderful week! Take care! Lisa:))
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you liked one of my cards...Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hello Chrissy,
Thank you for your patriotic 4th of July ATC that you created for this swap. It is a great ATC for the month of July. I look forward to adding it to my Months Series.
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for rating me with a heart!
Comment: You skipped several questions. But I was interested to see you've read a bunch of Lincoln biographies. I've been trying to trudge through the one by David Donaldson (I think). It is just so dense, I've all but given up. I met a Lincoln impersonator and that was the biography he recommended.
Response: Ooops...I'm sorry, but thank you for rating me a 5 anyway! Yep, I love Lincoln. Never read Donaldson's...is it worth it to even try?
Comment: Hello Chrissy, I absolutely love the pictures of those abandoned buildings! The jail one is so cool! Those kind of post are so old western time ~ it's great! Love the old house too! And the river card is beautiful! You take great pictures. Sorry I didn't rate soon. As for the leg ~ I got out of the boot cast last Thursday. It feel so weird walking, I kinda walk funny (limp) and I have to do everything slow....I am not a slow person! LOL Thanks again! Kelly
Response: Thank you so much! Glad you're out of the cast!
Comment: This is an amazing book that you have made. I love the poem A Coat. Amazing.
As for the rest of it. Yes, we have many things in common, although having been forced to read Crime and Punishment in my Junior year of high school, Fyodor is not one of my favourite people. Right down there with Boris Pasternak when it comes to slogging through words. I love words, just not put together by those two.
Need to write you a letter or people will wonder at the 6 inch long rating.comment
Response: Thank you for the nice comment and the heart! I can understand why you don't like Fyodor very much!
Comment: Thanks Chrissy! Beautiful work, as always, and now I have a Chrissy Hunter original to add to my collection! Skye is going to love the package (she's not home yet) and I can't wait to give it to her! Miss you!
Response: Ha! Love ya! Thanks for the heart...I miss you too!!!
Comment: Oh wow, thank you!!! Thank you so much for the gorgeous bookmark, the lovely book, and the extra pretty journalling cards! Everything is totally my style and I can't wait to read the book! You really blessed me today! :)
Response: So glad you enjoyed everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Really great package! Thanks for all the wonderful extras. Your inchie and twinchie are awesome and I especially appreciate the postcard with the cummings quote. Wish I could give you more stars!
Response: Thanks! I loved this swap...it was so much fun! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I LOVED the mailart <3 I adore the blue/orange combo and painted envies are devine. Plus, I've just recently started riding my bike again (after being of it for about 10 years), so it was kind of perfect. & the 50centavos - very cool, thanks! I do hope you get to spend the extended amount of time there that you wish someday. Take Care
Response: I'm so glad you got it and liked it!! I was getting worried that it was lost! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you SO much for the sweet package! I love the tea cup and saucer, and since I was sick, the dandelion tea was just what I was wanting. The other one was good too! And recipes, so fun!! Loved it all.
Comment: I absolutely loved your mail art envie! Beautiful job. What did you use over the top of everything? I love the texture it gave the envie. Thank you for the nice stickers and lace too. That is so awesome that you are unschoolers. I really want to answer your questions so I am hoping to write you back.
Response: Hi! I covered everything with glossy Mod Podge! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: This package was so much fun to open ! You found so many fun and fabulous strawberry items... the socks are super cute...and i do like the tic tacs :) ... I will have fun using the fabric scraps --- I truly love all you sent --- Thank you for everything ! â™¥ â™¥ â™¥

Comment: Thank you so much for all the goodies! And such a lovely family! Your son is a copy of his dad! Haven't tried the hot chocolate and the cider yet but the candy and mint was delicious. The mint reminds me of a bubblegum we have here in Sweden: Jenka, wich was a favorite of mine as a child. Thank you so much and have a happy new year!!
Comment: What a wonderful Christmas surprise- I love the card you made, the recipe, and the gift tags! And the way you decorated the envelope is so cute, I have it displayed on my memo board in my craft room. Thanks for the time and thought you put into this swap- we are trying the compote dish this Christmas! Have a wonderful holiday...

Comment: Thank you for making my first package from swapbot (since I'm a new member this month) such a pleasant & positive experience! :) I Love! the Impressionist painting stickers & the beautiful papers ,especially the large Victorian & angel/fantasy ones, & the beautiful tags & embellishments. You put a lot of care I think into reading my likes & dislikes on my profile. It was so much fun opening my 1st pkg! Thank you & Happy Thanksgiving! Sarah

Comment: Oh my goodness, Chrissy! Do you ever know how to make someone's day! :-) I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED my wonderful package that you sent to me! And what a sweet surprise for the extras that you included! How thoughtful of you to include the cards for me to use with the Greeting Card ministry that I am involved in. The cards that you sent for that were PERFECT!! Thank you so very much for your support of my efforts there. I enjoyed everything - the beautiful card, your wonderful note, the tasty sounding deserts that we will be trying in our home soon, and of course, the cards! It was a great package! Thank you so very much!! Merry Christmas to you and yours, too!
