Comment: Thank you so much! I was trying to decide what was my favorite, but I couldn't pick. I loved the quote on the back of the WWF bookmark ("The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man."), and the swap-bot kit was amazing too. I hope you are doing well! :)

Response: Hi - I am sorry that you have not received your card. I sent a white card with a snowflake on the front - seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rlj/11367228896/in/set-72157602135475903 - are you sure you have not received it? Re-send mailed 12/30/13. SO glad that the card arrived!
Comment: GORGEOUS! Loved the matchboxes, and of course I didn't mind you sending them both together. What are the odds of you being my partner in BOTH the Int'l and USA version of the swap?! So glad the assignments are made by computer or someone might've thought I planned that!!! ha ha! But really, I LOVED receiving both matchboxes and the Ernie the Envelope goodies, too! The glitter pin...WOW! I will have to put that on my lanyard I wear for work...Oh, and I just LOVED the Snowflake card...the colors were so perfect and the card so simply elegant (my style). This is definitely being displayed in my house during the month of December! I can't say enough of how much I enjoyed your package! THANK YOU, Rachel! :) And Merry Christmas to you and Travis!
Response: Yay! I am so glad you liked everything. I sort of felt like I was cheating you out of one of the packages, but I hope they were still fun to open. Thank you for hosting these great swaps and being an awesome member of the 'bot! xoxo
Comment: I held the postcard upside down when I showed it to my Hubby. Oooops :-\ He has seen every episode of Stark Trek. It is his favorite too. I've seen some of it, always getting confused who is in which episode... I like to see the extras the most, about the making of. Thanks a lot for this battleship. It looks great between al the sweet girly girly postcards we already have!
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard! We love doing things in Des Moines since my brother lives there. We haven't been to the Art Center yet but the kids are getting old enough now that we will have to check it out!

I also MUST ask, where did you get all the swap-bot related stuff? I am totally envious and want some for myself. :(

Check out this blog post and message me if you'd like to get something - http://blog.swap-bot.com/2013/03/27/store-bot-buy-swap-bot-swag/
Comment: Great card. I also have a book (not the same cards) of quilt postcards that I hoard. They are so pretty, and the talent of the quilters amazes me. It's a craft I have never attempted. Thanks for a super swap -- and a super site.
Response: I, too, am amazed by quilts... I started making one, but haven't gotten very fair... Happy swapping!
Comment: thank you for the postcard. I found more of his work on internet. It remembers me of the work of Claes Oldenburger, whos doesn't paint, but he makes very BIG objects of dauly things like a hamburger or a screwdriver. Very nice. I saw his work in Guggenheim New York in 1995.
Response: Yes! The artist are similar - both worked during the Pop Art movement. My favorite Oldenburg works are the shuttlecocks at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. Happy swapping!
Comment: Eep! Sorry Rachel, I was sure I had rated you :O Thank you for the postcard- I love it! I used to watch the X-Files with my brother when I was little but they were never really aired in a logical way here in England so I've never seen them all. I remember that alien though.. I must admit I'm a little freaked out by aliens so the postcard came with an added cheap thrill when I turned it over to look at the front xD heehee, thanks again!
Response: Glad it arrived! Yes, I sent out sort of scary scifi postcards for this swap... they just seemed the most interesting. ha! (Oh, and watch the first four seasons on X-files in order - they are the best!)
Comment: I always love seeing mail with your return address on it. You were my receive from partner on two matchboxes way back when I started out here. You made me feel special then and you still did now. Thank you for the cute little matchbox, the little goodies inside and the extra SB related items. Thank you again.

Comment: Wow, awesome postcard :) I'm so happy I got you as a swap partner, and thank you so much for choosing to send me a postcard that represents swap-bot. Being on swap bot is an amazing adventure/journey, where you are able to meet and touch people lives, give them smiles, joy, encouragement and a bit of happiness. Huge thank you for making it possible :) All the best to you!
Comment: Woot woot! Now I have 2 matchboxes made by you in my collection! I love the matchbox and all the fun things you sent along with it. You must quit spoiling me with the swap-bot swag, or I will never be able to justify ordering more! On second thought, never mind, spoil away. :)
Response: Yay! I am glad I had you as a partner again. I love sending Swap-bot swag along with my swaps. :)

I wish I could give you more than ONE HEART as you sent an incredible package. The presentation of your matchbox was FANTASTIC!!!! Thank you so much for the goodies inside the matchbox. I know I will be able to use them. Thank you for centering the items around my favorite color. Thank you also for the extra sticker package. I am also excited about the Swap-bot postcards, buttons, and small cards I received from you. This is the first time I have ever received any of these items. I will cherish these items.

Comment: Awesome pics Rachel! You did a great job! I love them~ the "vintage thread"... so cool!! And I have to ask...what are those round objects with words? I love them! They look like some sort of meatal/vintage advertising something? ;) I'm just so thrilled about this new app! I've already been planning my second order!!! Thanks for such a great swap!! Can't wait for round two!!
p.s. thanks for the extra swap-bot goodies too.... I was starting to get a little stingy with the things I left :)

Comment: Thank you for the vintage look NYC pc and for sharing your memories. I was honeymooning in NYC the week before 9/11, and stood under the WTC on 9/4/01. I only wish the sense of national unity in the aftermath could have lasted longer.
Comment: Thanks for the Ernie postcard, Rachel! I really appreciate how much time and effort you put in to making this such a fun site! It has been a dream to make friends all over the world and become the crafty person I never thought I could be. Thanks so much for all of your hard work :-)

Comment: Rachel, thank you soooooo much for this museum card I have longed for. I like Claes Oldenburg's sculptures, too. I have a postcard of his Spoonbridge and Cherry in Minneapolis and will look for the Shuttlecock in Guggenheim and Clothespin in Philadelphia. I would have given you more hearts if allowed for your contribution to my collection!
Comment: What an adorable card. A little swap-bot logo. Sorry to see that you are having such gloomy weather in your area but hurray for nice pieces of mail to bring sunshine on gloomy days ;-)
Thank you for the card and Haunted House too!
Comment: Hi Rachel ! Thank you so much for the swap-bot postcard - Love it ! Also for creating this great site!! I have heard from so many really great people. I joined "pen pals for a year swap", well the year is up and my pen-pals from Virginia and Germany still keep in touch!
I love libraries so much! As a child we lived in a very rural area where a bookmobile would come every two weeks. I would check out a huge stack of books, Nancy Drew being one of my favorites, and then I'd be first in line when they would return! I have actually worn out library cards, lol, "back in the day" when they were paper! I now have library cards from three different cities in the Dayton area!
Thanks again - Good Luck in the NYC Marathon!
Comment: *** WOW! *** Just wow, such a tremendous treat-filled box-o-delights. Thank you very much, Rachel! I haven't even finished opening up the tissue-wrapped portions, because I want to savor them. I'm so excited about the maps and brochures, and the Fodor's -- what a wonderful surprise! The little Buddha in an egg cup is my new token treasure, and the Brooklyn candies are a hoot. Thanks for the great, memorable swap.

Comment: Love the decorated envie. It reminds me of when I was a kid with a lot of penpals, a lot of time, and little money. We used to consider every space on the envelope fair game for messages. It was so fun to open my mailbox and find something that just begged to be opened!
Comment: Thank you so much, what a lovely package to open :-) The matchbox is very pretty, and I love the ornament and will pack it down and hang it on the tree next year (we just took the tree down yesterday). Thanks also for all the other extra goodies, I put the little swapbot badges on my backpack so they will go with me everythime I go out :-D

I loved what you came up with and all the nice little finishing touches, such as ribbon around the lollipops and the matchbox for the buttons. It was all fabulous, including the swapbot postcards and pins, and made even more special because you also checked out my profile! Many, many thanks and ten hearts if I could!

Thanks for swapping! I am sure we will "meet" again...

It feels really special to be a swappartner of the coordinator, but beijng a swappartner of you feels really great!!!!! Thanks for making this great site; swap-bot.com. I really love it.
Thanks for your many nice words about my profile etc. When my mothers was little all her dolls and teddies listened to the name: Ingrid. So there was no discussion when I was born..... it should be Ingrid! I like it also. In The Netherlands it is a very populair name under girls who are now something like 30. Now a days not many Ingrid's are born here.
Maybe.... if you get a girl one day...... ;-)
Thanks again for everything!
Many greetings from Ingrid from the Netherlands <3

Wow, I have been wanting some kawaii sticker flakes for *forever* and haven't been able to find any, I was thrilled to see some of them in there, along with a little something for all kinds of things I say that I like on my profile, and that my kids like. I absolutely loved the green matchbox also, it's sooo pretty. You are very much appreciated, and your work is awesome. Thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad you received the package so quickly. I actually forgot to mark the swap as sent the day I mailed it and was afraid you might be upset if it was late... I am so glad you liked everything. It certainly was a random mix of stickers, but I just put in anything I thought you might like! xoxo
Comment: Thanks for sharing and I really LOVE your blog!!
I love the "Fairy house" made of paper and your apartment is alsovery beautiful...
And we have the same meaning about the "Twilight" book :).
Comment: I loved how you promoted your partners blogs and I loved how your muffins turned out. What a great tradition, although I do have to say, I love Cold Case and there is nothing wrong with her hair! LOL! I hope you have continued happiness and success in all ventures of your life and thank you for sharing a bit about yourself with me!
Response: Thank you for the kind words and for checking out my blog. I have fun keeping it up - it is like my scrapbook. xoxo
Comment: My husband and son are the two WOW players at our house. I have no clue about characters and such. They enjoyed your post card. And thanks for the extra swap-bot post cards. I have a couple friends that have been on the fence about joining, maybe it will push them over. Thanks again.
Comment: Hi Rachel, I love the Dotee doll she is so cute and I would never have guessed she was the first you have ever made, I love her and will be posting a photo of her on my flickr photo's, I would give you extra hearts if I could, I love it that everyone has a different style for making these dolls as I have myself, also thankyou very much for the extras, Until we swap again sometime, kind regards and happy seasons wishes Barbara XX

Yes, the matchbox has stayed together!! Thank you for asking...take care!!
Response: You are so welcome! I am sorry that I waited until the last minute to send it out to you. I was also a little worried about the glitter cardstock as it didn't take too well to glue... did the matchbox stay together?
Comment: what a pretty package of pink perfection!:) I love the way you wrapped it, and this is the first mb I've received that was "made from scratch", not using a pre-existing mb. Neat! Lovely bonus goodies, also. Thank you for making it a happy mail day for me!:D

Comment: Hi Rachel! Thank you so much for your fun package. I love the Alice mirror! It's the best. It's also great fun to get a matchbox. Did you make the matchbox yourself?
