Comment: Thank you so much for the delicious recipes and the really cute cupcake liners and toothpicks! I absolutely loved them! I am sorry for the late rating, I could of sworn that I had....so sorry!
Comment: I feel like we have a ton of things in common! Also, I wrote down the Chocolove... It doesn't look like it's available in my area but I'll keep my eyes peeled none-the-less! Thanks for the answers!!!
Comment: Loved, loved, loved my goodie swap you sent me today! I was thrilled to see all the old photos and postcards. Did you make the little "stars"? You did a fantastic job...thanks! Wish I could give you a couple more hearts!
Response: I'm glad you liked them. :) I've been collecting old photos myself. I want to collage them over an old dresser I have. Yup, I made the stars.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the lovely tea you have sent me. I am so looking forward to try them out. And actually haven't tried any of them before:))) Love to try out new flavours so these are some I am really looking forward to try out.
Comment: Fun stuff!! The notecards and postcards are just AWESOME! The scorpio charms are pretty too, but I'm not a scorpio! :( I'll have to go find someone who is and give them to them. I know a lot of beading/artsy-fartsy people. :D The NowandLater candy is great, my brothers go through that stuff like its, well, you know, candy. hehe! (cherry is my fav candy flavor too!) Thanks so much for the trade!
Comment: Thank you Angela for the magnets and I really like the extra pc. that you sent to me.
Response: I'm so glad they arrived! I went on to get your addy Monday & saw your rating. I had new ones ready to send, but I'm glad the first ones got to you, b/c these ones ended up with too many air bubbles. I wasn't very proud of them. :P
Comment: wow, youre good! i never thought to send deco tape this way! lol..
and i love purple so both of these items were great! thanks so much.
Response: I'm so glad both items arrived! :) It's funny that the bank got there so fast, but the tape took so much longer. The purple thing must have been fate. :) I just thought the purple bank looked better than any of the other colors, and I originally had another dollar store item to send but then thought it probably wouldn't mail well, so I sent the deco tape which I bought a bunch of a few weeks ago because it was on clearance for a dollar. :) I promise I'll be uploading your photos sometime soon (not that it really matters now, since you did receive everything). It's just that I have to do it on a different computer in a non-air conditioned room. :/ I hate summer. :P
Comment: Thank you very very much!! I've never tasted those jellybeans, and I love them. Can't wait to try the chocolate, it looks AWESOME! And also much thanks for the cute socks! You made my day :)
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I was hoping Jelly Bellies weren't distributed in Europe because I wanted to send something you haven't had before. :) They have probably hundreds of flavors. My favorite has always been buttered popcorn. I love all the fruity ones too, like pear, cantaloupe, grapefruit, etc. :)
Comment: Thanks soooo much. I received ur package today and I immediately started eating the jelly beans. Yummy. Yes those are some of the old fashioned candies that I enjoy. Thanks again.
Response: Cool. :) If I was sure I'd be going out that way before the swap deadline, I would've stopped at this fun 5 & dime type store outside of Buffalo & got you something there. They have candy cigarettes & sen sen & sky bars & clove/blackjack/teaberry gum, & all that kind of stuff. :)
Comment: That's so funny-I pick out the pretzles from Chex Mix too-even though I like pretzles, I hate the ones in there! Enjoyed your interesting answers-thanks for sharing!
Response: I don't love pretzels, but I'll eat them sometimes. But the ones in Chex mix are so bland...they hardly even have any salt on them. I don't know why they even put them in there b/c the seasoning doesn't stick to them anyway. I usually crush them up and add some herbs/spices to use as bread crumbs for cooking or just toss them out for the birds & squirrels. :)
Comment: Oh my, ok, now you have someone on your hands feeling guilty for not allowing you to enter her swap due to its requirements.. This was a wonderful selection of teas, thank you so much! I particularly LOVE the packaging of that Strawberry tea. I should have given you the benefit of the doubt, I'm sorry.
Response: Aw, don't feel guilty. :) I know I didn't have many newer ratings yet when your swap was up, and I still need to get my rating back up. I would have been leery if I was the swap host too. I'm glad you liked everything! :)
Comment: Angela, thank you so much for all the herb seeds and morning glory flowers. My neighbor planted morning glories and and the have grown over to our side. They are purple in color, my fav color, which I'm sure you know now. Also, thank you for the sachet! It smell so good! I have two lavender plants and I'm going to make more sachet for myself! I'm such a dummy, I never thought of doing something like that, duh! Thanks again!
Response: You're welcome! :) My mom always had morning glories when I was a kid & my little sister used to pluck the flowers off, stick them on her nose & inhale. My mom would be annoyed, but then she couldn't help but laugh at her also (she was only pre-school-kindergarten age). :) I've also made perfume oils from lavender before...just soaking some lightly ground/mashed flowers/leaves in a little grapeseed oil in a mason jar for 1-2 weeks, then strain & transfer to a small glass container. It's so much better than any artificial scent. :)
Comment: It is a wonderful package and I truly appreciate it. Unfortunately, this rating is because it was sent one month after the due date. Please accept my sincerest thanks and I hope you understand my rating.
Comment: I've been listening to your first CD for the past few days in the car. I just loved it. Those mixed CD's are what mine aspire to be when they grow up. :) I am embarrassed to say I only recognized 6 artists off of both discs! Ack! But, that has not impeded my enjoyment. I look forward to digging into the second disc as well. Also, the special case is just lovely. :) A handmade goodie and two fabulous cds, what more could a girl want from a swap?
Comment: even though late (but you told me you'd be) you get a heart! what a great package. two cds! and a lot of goodies! I love the NBC keychain!thank you so much! also thanks for sending along the forum tag cd (s)!
Comment: thank you so much for this package. i appreciate you letting me know it would be late, and as far as i'm concerned, you went above & beyond with TWO discs and the awesome extras. thank you again!
Comment: I got your lists today in the mail. Even though they were late I'm still going to rate you good because you did keep in contact with me. You also went above and beyond the call of duty for the list making so that is what the star is for. Thank you!!!
Comment: I got it in today's mail and thank you. That was a great variety of original songs. I only skipped through them on my lunch hour - but am sure I will enjoy them.
Thanks for all the goodies, too!
Comment: Thanks for the great photo. I must admit that the one taken on your walk to work made me a bit jealous!! What a lovely view to be looking at whilst walking to work! :-)
Response: It *was* lovely that day...made me think there was a good reason for me missing the bus. :) Did you just receive them? Just curious, cuz two of my other partners haven't received yet, but I sent them all the same day. Oh wait, you're in Australia, so that makes sense...nevermind. :P
Comment: Oh goodness, this is the cutest thing ever! I don't know if you made it yourself, but the handmade vintage strawberry shortcake needle point is sooo very cute! And the buttons and stickers were an added bonus!!! Thanks for reading my profile and sending stuff I love! :O)
Response: Woo, I love that you love it. No, I didn't do the needlepoint myself (that's one crafty thing I just don't have the patience for. :)) but I thought you'd like it. I'm so glad you loved everything! :)
Comment: OMG, OMG! I can't even tell you how much I absolutely LOVE my skates!!! I opened the package in my car & already had them on my mirror before I even read your letter!!! lol! You have made my month! Thank you!
Response: Ooooh, I'm *so* glad you love them! I tried putting brakes on them, but no matter how I drew it, it just didn't look right. You'll just have to be careful...haha. :) Roller derby kicks ass. :)
