Response: Seriously? How can I make it right if I don't know it is wrong. Perhaps contacting me to let me know and correct the situation before rating me a one would be appropriate and get a package re-sent to you.
Comment: Thanks for all the extra papers. Also thanks for the extras you sent in outer envelope I will put them to good use.
Response: I just responded to your note. I also included a statement above in my profile... my grandmother and my grandfather both passed away in the last 2 weeks - thus the delay. I will send you the tracking # tomorrow.
Comment: Marisa the post cards were awesome! Thank you for taking the time to put the extra effort into decorating to make the mail look that much brighter when opening the box! I really, really enjoyed the one from CA back in 1979 that was awesome! Thank you!
Comment: Haa wow, it took 2 months ! I think they got confused with the postal code, the last number (4) was a bit ilegible and the adress was circled with red marker. I have another peeps lipbalm ! But the yellow one, so i have one more for the collection, yay ! And the pins are cool !! They are interesting and the one of jesus does not offed me, haha ! My partner and i sometimes make jokes of him, we dont believe in religion, but in a natural force or something strange. We are a bit hippies also. Ohh glad it arrived, because i dont like when things get lost in the mail and someone has to resend. (I have done it just once !) Good luck " Cheers. Cometa
Comment: I got my envie full of envies today and they are beautiful! Thank you! I'd feel really bad giving you a 3 for this swap. What's 6 days, really? It's not like I didn't hear from you. I hope your life settles down a little, and that you can find some peace and comfort.
Comment: Your package was awesome! Love absolutely everything (which is a LOT!): your personal pc, all the items that are related to things I love, your clever arrangement & packaging. Just can't express my appreciation & awe of your thoughtfulness and generosity! Many items I've never seen anything similar to and all are just fabulous: I can hardly wait to get started--you've sparked many ideas! Immediately made a cup of luscious tea, too. Fabulous package, Marisa, for which I will ever be grateful! Please let me know if you are searching for anything in particular that I might help you locate. Gracias and blessings, C
Comment: Hello Marisa,
Thank you very much for the delightful read and the pretty neat postcard you sent me. The stickers added to the pc where amazing and loved that they where sparkly, but most of all the cover for hearst magazine looked amazing back in 1914. :D Thank you once again for my pc.:D
Comment: Hello Marisa... I was so surprise to get a big package from you and when I opened it, I got so excited to see two packages inside. How cool is it, that I'm your partner for 2swaps? That was really really cool. That was really a first time. I just love all the paper goods you sent me. I can't help but show it off to my sister, LOL. Thank you so much Marisa... xoxo
Comment: Oh my god ... this package totally "wow'd" me! You picked so many awesome items. YOu shouldn't have sent so much, I was totally overwhelmed! Really, I'd love to give you a few million hearts more. You found items I totally liked and you were incredibly generous. Thank you! I hope to meet you on here again, you were a great partner!
Comment: Thank you for the nice complement - I will have to tell my husband at least one person finds me low-maintenance! ; )
I love the postcard - it is surprising it was done in the 20s; looks much earlier! I wish voluptuous butts like that were en vogue now!
Comment: Thankyou so much for the wonderful bead swap, they arrived yesterday and I'm thrilled with them all, you well deserve the heart rating. I shall be posting a photo on my flickr site for my friends and family to see, have fun swapping and maybe our paths will cross again sometime with swap-bot, with very best wishes Barbara
Comment: Hi funkypeacenik!:) Post-its,& pens,&teas & cards!Oh, MY!!:) What a great day it was for my mailbox!:)L<3ve it ALL!:) Definitely needed the assortment of cards...I keep saying how uncanny it is when I am short of something...these swaps come through with just what I need. My son sends his Thanks too!:) He's nabbing the Post-notes n pens.:) I hope your swap-partner sent you just what you need too!:) Thanks again!Love my Burt's Bees!:) Happy Swapping!!Ciao!:)
Comment: Thank you for the interesting postcard reproduction of George Seely's "Blotches of sunlight". As was said of Seely's work, he "raised the art of pictorial transformation to a very high level. His pictures possess authority, integrity, and coherence as superbly crafted artifacts of a passionate idealist and committed aesthete." Too bad he chose to give up photography work early in his creative life. Thank you.
Comment: What a day today :o) ... Marisa, how many hearts would you like? â™¥â™¥ If only I could put up more hearts for you than allowedâ™¥â™¥
THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the incredible package! The postage itself is so much (I was looking as the envelope is so big!). I think you wrote a good line when you said you're a "paper addict". I must be one too altho I'll bet you're well ahead of me! Wishing you an awesome week! Pat
Response: I'm sorry that happened. I was putting together several swaps at the same time and perhaps overlooked it. Should it have been a real issue, I imagine that you would have sent me a private message and I would have simply resent you a package. I guess posting my mistake publically and not allowing me to correct my mistake, somehow bestows some form of gratification on your part. Who knows. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Hi Marisa,
Thanks for the wonderful package. I recieved, all the things I love, notecards, a pack of pencils (Hello Kitty) notepad Saturday Evening Post , tea ribbon, and a little keep sake! Nice,! I worked hard on another package for you. Hope you like it!
Response: I am so glad that you liked everything. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: WOW! Thanks so much Marisa!!!! I have so much shooting to do now! & developing, haha! The film is all great, can't wait to use up some and the candy is so much yum! Toblerone is done! Thanks so much for doing this private swap with me, would love to swap with you again sometime! ♥
Response: I'm so glad that it got there! I can't wait to get your package!
Comment: Holy Generosity, Batgirl. I am completely overwhelmed with the variety and bounty of your package. Thank you so much! I can't get over it. You did far too much... Wow. I love everything. The yarns are totally inspiring, the Zum stuff smells GREAT. The cards, notebooks, stickies, brads...I'm just overwhelmed. This is by far the nicest swap I have received in years. THANKS. I can only hope to please you a fraction as well as you've pleased me!
Response: I am so glad you liked it.. I was so nervous b/c I have never done a swap like that- so I think I went overboard.
Comment: not even going to lie- when i looked to see who my partner was, and checked out your profile, i was so excited- and i was right! you rock! loving ALL of it- esp. the ani postcard and the HRC stickers (i have that tattooed on my right shoulder)- i'd love to do a private swap with you anytime :)
Response: I saw your profile and TOTALLY got excited too! I am still looking for the stash of Ani stuff for you. I will find it.
Comment: It is times likes these where it is a pleasure to leave a response for my swap partner. I cannot express how wonderful your parcel was with all the goodies inside. I love your note and the selection of goodies - it was clear you read my profile and included a lot of crafty goodies (and high quality at that). I would give you a dozen hearts if it were allowed, you have made my day. I would love to swap with you in the future and love the "local" items inside. I love your green and all natural approach as those are things important to me too :). It really did feel like my birthday today. Thank you!
Comment: WOW!!! I wish I could give you 10 Hearts!! What a super envie--love everything in it. I can't believe how much you put in the envelope. Love the frog sticky notes, notepad, notecards, envies, stickers, pens, pencil, etc. The pen pockets are so neat--I've never seen anything like them. Thanks so much Marisa. (Love your swap name too) Some people call me funky because of my last name.
Comment: Marisa ~ Wow!!! Thank you SO much! You have no idea how far that film will go in my life right now! I'd absolutely love to trade with you, especially for Holga film!!!! Message me about what you'd like in return!! ♥
Comment: WOW! thank you so much! .. I thought you were going to send only the badge and the prayer flags.. you added so many interesting extras!.. I love the tiny paper prayer flags, the tara devi card, the coffee mints, the tibet pins and the cloth flags of course.. loved this swap so much :) ..going to share it with my aunt who is also a Buddhist. Tomorrow I am going to try those sachet drinks.. You will receive mine any day now.. I got a little delayed due to all this moving business but I sent it via a priority service & it should arrive soon. If I had know you would send so much I would have added more things in the package.. but I really hope you like the stuff that I picked for you! thank you once again.. I was really happy with the swap :)
Comment: WOW!!! Love my mail! The postoffice lady just smiled as she handed it over. I can actually use the shovel for my spring planting. This was such a great thing to get in the mail! Thank you for making this so much fun!!! Hugs & Hearts, Mona
Comment: Thank you so much for the great stuff in your envie...it was like Xmas all over again... Thanks so much.... Oh and... ya know those padded priority envelopes are only $4.95 and the last swap you send me in one of those you paid $9.15 for postage... and $7 for this one so those mailers will come in handy for you as they are alot cheaper
Response: Do you know how many of those I sent out until I saw the flat rate words on it!!! OMG. Well maybe my overpayment will keep the postage from going up. Thanks for the heads up!
Comment: You are amazing!!! I had soooo much fun opening your package tonight!! You must know me or something because I just LOVE everything. The CDs are great. You put some of my favorite artists on them. I've actually seen Ani live twice. The Obey card is great too. I'm going to frame it and keep it on display somewhere in our house. I want to write more but my kid is crying and I have to go feed him, so I'll come back and add more later!
Comment: Thank you for your list of items in your netlix queue! I must say, I've never seen or even heard of the items that are in it! You definitely have me intrigued and I will look them up on the website to see what they are all about. My queue is riddled with "The First 48," "Crime 360," "CSI."...etc. My husband says I have problems with all my crime show addictions. :P Happy Swapping!
Comment: THANK you so much!!! This package was fantastic... I love the soap...it smells so wonderful after you shower...I may have to check out their website to get more... Everything was great and much appreciated... so you started your own piece of heaven with an urban homestead huh? Thats great... you're right... we should talk more!
Response: Zum soap is a gift from the heavens. Seriously. I am totally addicted. I am glad you liked everything.
Comment: Wow, the bubbleyum brings me back, I used to stuff my mouth so full of that gum that I'd barely be able to chew. Thanks for the cupcake and popsicle erasers, one was missing its 'stick,' i'll still put it to good use though! Thanks for all the stickers, they're awesome! <3
Comment: What a sweetheart!!!!!! I was having such a horrible day and then...I opened the mailbox. What a beautiful surprise Miss Marisa. Thank you. I want to give you 1,000 more hearts girl. I think I'll have a cup of tea and write a letter. ;- >
Comment: Oh........my.......GOODNESS! Thank you soo much for the awesome package. By far the best package I have recived in awhile.and thank you for thinking of my daughter, her eyes lit up when she saw her goodies =) YOU RAWK! =)
Comment: sorry for the delay, i left a rating before, but for some reason it didn't post. thank you so much for everything! the circus cards are awesome and the treats were delicious as well :)That was a great package to get in the mail :)
Comment: well arent you the greatest swapper I have come across in a longg while!!!! Thank you soooooo freakin much....for pretty much an entire new stash of postcards, and goodies!!!! happy mail day!!!! i hope our paths meet again!!! xoxoxoxo
Comment: some of those cards I can see why you wanted to get rid of them lol but one womans patheticness of cards is another womans treasure love the Harry Potter cards, thank you but the man?woman? in the strange garb is awesome, like you! thanks
Comment: Thank you for the old photo card! I am super jealous that you're building a darkroom! I'd love to have one, but I live in an apartment, so...while I do have a walk-in closet with no windows, space is at a premium around here! Hope you're doing well! :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful tea. Oh and yes we did get hammered with snow here in Ohio. The kids even got a couple days off school it was so nasty. Thank you again and I can't wait to try the tea.
Comment: I received your wonderful package today! Thank you so very much for the thoughtfulness you put into this project/craft. I enjoy everything and it really brightened my day! I wish I could give more hearts! :) Cheers!
Comment: I'm really for the delay in rating this! I thought I had done so before now.
I loved reading your list and reading a bit about your life. Even though I'm more into fiction than non-fiction, I think I may pick up one or two of them to read over the next year as well.
Comment: Marisa, your papers did meet the swap req (barely) so I have to rate 5 - extra effort could've got you a heart.
Response: I just went back and read the swap instructions. It asked for at least 6 pieces of paper, that was pretty. Further into the comments it states that notecards and other things were acceptable. There should have been, at the least 3 larger sheets of paper, more of a card stock type paper, with 3 note cards and envies. I then thought I threw in another note cards and a few stickers since they all fit in the envie. If this what not what I sent you, then I apologize. Please let me know and I will correct it. I may have sent the wrong envelope to you. If it was what was what I sent you, I apologize that you were not happy with it. Please trust, that more thought went into yours then what I received. If you wish to discuss more, please send me a private message.
Comment: Thanks for the comment - yes, I had to take the GRE - not much fun but necessary :) Not sure about the Phd yet.......
Response: The programs I am looking into don't make me take the GRE. But they also don't have a PhD track. One program is at Northwestern in Chicago. So I am not sure which is more important- take what I want and not worry about a phd or take something that is 3rd or 4th on my list to open the chance for a phd.
