Comment: Thank you so much for the nice chatty letter and cute owl stickers. It was so awesome to see your decorated envelope in my mailbox. Sorry for rating a bit late just trying to sort out all the mail I have received during the holidays. Yours was truly putting some sunshine through all the bills lol
Response: I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Wow, isn’t that a cool idea. Some people’s creativity amazes me. I know just the person I’m going to give this to and she is going to love it. Thank you very much. And the bookmark and stickers, they put a smile on my face.
Your envelope is pretty cool, it took a bit of time to do that. But just to let you know only .23 cents of postage stamps made it, and Canada post still delivered it, that also amazes me 😂😂😂😂😂. Have a great day.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. It never occurred to me that the stamps would fall off those envelopes - I've already had a few come back to me for insufficient postage - good to know at least one made it ok! Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: I love the flip books you make; they are definitely Happy Mail. The ghost tour sound like so much fun and congratulations on winning tickets. Its so fun to win something. Thank you for sending happiness and a little bit of your adventures for me to enjoy.♥
Response: I'm glad you liked it - I loved the letter you sent me last week - I'll have one out to you soon. Hope you have a great week. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Wow, that is absolutely amazing as well as beautiful. I have never seen one of these and I absolutely love it and everything that's in it. I really do enjoy stories about your nephews and the time you spend with them, it's always important to have a special auntie in their lives. Glad to hear that you had fun on your ghost walk, I love them and I find it very informative and fun.
This was a beautiful swap that you sent, now I'm sitting here wondering what in the world am I going to do for the next swap that is different. Take care and keep safe and thank you.
Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. I really had fun working on these and using my craft supplies. I need to think of an idea for next month too! Hope you have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Receiving mail from you is always special and you made this into such a special swap to open as well. Everything from the envelope covered with stamps, the note card with message, the letter, the tea and the special washi samples would have been enough but you also packaged it so nicely in a pocket letter. Thank you for sending this little envelope of love.♥
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I was actually working on another piece of mail for you today. Stay tuned - a letter should be on its way next week. :) Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Wow! Thanks so much for the very neat pocket letter! I really like it! Also the goodies that came with it!
Hope your Thanksgiving dinner goes well for you! I also am hosting one!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I hope your Thanksgiving dinner goes well too! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Kim! Your pocket letter was so cute! Yours is the first pocket letter I have ever received. I love the airmail details. Where did you get all these cute stickers??? Thank you so much for putting this together. I hope you had a nice getaway with your boyfriend.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I'm a huge hoarder of stickers - these have been in my stash for awhile! I love anything mail themed, so this was a really fun swap for me. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely (and profile-related!) cards, stickers and postcard. It has been nice and hot here too for the last week. 31-32C (finally! Summer wasn't all too hot) Good luck hosting Thanksgiving! I'll bet it's amazing. I know it's coming up soon so I hope it goes well!!! Thank you for joining my swap and I'm so lucky I was your partner!!! : ) xo Oh!!! And the stamps you used were fab!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. I hope you are doing well. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for your goodies. I loved them
remember if swaps says package to send, i mostly send large packages. Just a tip. Lynn
Response: You're welcome. Based on the example in the swap description, I think this swap was to be for little surprises. It was categorized as package or craft with no requirement to send a large package. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hi Kim ~ you did an incredible job of packing that envelope! Thank you so much. I love all of it. ♥ ..those postcards are really nice and different and I love food stickers. All good! I wonder which cirque de soleil..? We have a Christmas one coming here. **oops, I meant note cards, not postcards..**
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I saw Volta - it was really cool - they can do some amazing tricks - we really enjoyed it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome mail! Your holiday sounds very fun! We watched the solar eclipse on tv. I remember when I was little, we had a solar eclipse here and it turned darker and colder while the sun was hidden.
Response: You're welcome. I hope you're having a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much Kim! Your vacation sounded truly relaxing :D I love everything you sent, the washi, notecard and the address labels are the best!! I love the travel and mail themes on them~ xoxoxo
Oh and I had the same problem trying to take a picture of the eclipse hehe!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Love this envelope. The Scrabble card is awesome because I love playing scrabble. And the return stickers, great I've been sitting here dwelling on what to put on my new set and you just helped me along. Love the washi! We didn't get to see the solar eclipse here because of too much smoke from the fires. Glad to hear you had a great vacation. Thanks for the wonderful swap. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: You're welcome. I'm so glad you liked it. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!

Comment: Thank you for the note! I enjoy reading about what people are doing! Also, I love the return address labels. You read my profile! Also, the cute notecard and washi tape. Great swap! I didn't see the eclipse either.
Response: You're welcome. I hope you're having a great day. Happy Swapping!

Response: You're welcome. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: I just received your package and I can't tell you how much it meant to me! My sister moved today from here, London, to Cape Breton. It's the first time in 37 years that we've been apart. So, needless to say, I'm feeling very sad. Then I checked the mailbox and saw your loaded envelope spoiling me with all the amazing goodies but reading about your weekend with the family was icing on the cake. Thank you for the pick me up when I needed it most 😘😘😘
Response: I'm so glad to hear this gave you a pick me up. It was a fun swap to work on. I was definitely inspired by your profile. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you sooo much for the very thoughtful package it was well worth the wait! I absolutely love everything you read my profile carefully and chose the most perfect stuff for me! Certainly happy mail in Ireland this morning ! Thank you Kim! 💗💗💗💗
Response: I'm so glad it finally arrived - I had just given up on it. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it - thanks again for being so patient. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter about your week and the things that made you happy - you are very lucky with finding stuff and winning stuff - I'm jealous XD. Finding £5 here is almost unheard of! Also - thank you for the great washi samples :)
Response: Finding $5 here is pretty much unheard of too! We were definitely lucky. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Oh wow Kim, what an amazing envie of happiness!! <3 I wish I could give you more than one heart! I adore it all; the rubber stamps (I WILL be using those right away!), the stickers, the kawaii, everything! I'm even tickled with the patterned paper bags you used for a couple of items, I've been all about those lately! <3
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. This was a fun one to put together. Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the envelope. Really enjoyed reading your letter and all the stamps on the envelope, Canadian stamps that I've never seen before going to have to try to track some down. Loved everything else in the envelope as well, thank you very much.. We could sure use some rain in BC.
Response: If you're looking for stamps, check out discountpostage.ca - they sell discontinued postage at a discount - I've been ordering from them for a few years now and you get a great variety of stamps. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the nice letter! I liked your 3 positive things! The best one was the mail, I agree it is so fun to get happy mail! Thank you for the extras! Loved them all! The stamps were great too on the envelope!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I had fun with this one. Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: So many wonderful stamps on your envelope, and they didn't even cancel them. How could they have missed them? What you picked for me is very lovely. It really makes me happy. Thanks also for your letter and the insight in your life. It was fun to read.Have a very pleasant summer
Response: I love when they don't cancel the stamps! Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: You want to finish 125 books this year? Wow, I thought 60 was good, and that's my goal. I had a problem with The Testing book #2, Independent Study. I thought she was too perfect in the book, and so I never bothered with #3.
Thanks for your list!
Response: You're welcome. Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing about your week with me. I love when people send actual letters! And then going through all the junk journal supplies you sent was just icing on the cake...so much fun, I loved it! I am keeping your letter to tuck into a pocket when I use the goodies in my junk journal!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. I always save all of my letters too in a smashbook along with any cool envelopes or goodies I get in a swap. Have a great day! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Dinosaur Stamps!!! <3 <3 <3 them! The little book format was genius thinking! Dragon Springs Road sounds very good + since it was your favorite I will probably try to check it out. I haven't heard of paper fury or the pretty books so I'll make sure to check those sites out as well. I had a blast reading your survey!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I hope you enjoy Dragon Springs Road - I'm reading one of her other novels now called Three Souls and I'm enjoying it so far. Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for a great swap. firstly, I loved all the stamps you used on the envelope and secondly all the great things inside.

Comment: Thanks for all of the wonderful happy mail supplies! I will get a lot of use out of these thank you. The little metal page markers are adorable and I think I'm going to use them as book marks! It's been raining a lot here too. The last movie I saw in the theater was Beauty and the Beast. I hope you got to see something good :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked them. We went to see The Circle - it was ok, nothing special though. Hope you have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: O. M. G. KIM! The cassette tape stickers made me squeal out loud and now I'm going to hoard them forever and maybe sleep with them under my pillow. I love the calendar cards you sent too, and especially the chatty note - thanks so much for making me smile! Enjoy those dance competitions!
Response: I am so glad you like the stickers. I could never find a project to use them on and was excited to see you list it on your profile. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter and goodies; I loved it all! It was nice to get to know you a little. I haven't gone through my clothes in years - I hate getting rid of things - but it is definitely overdue! I should follow your example and do some dejunking/organizing this spring. Have a wonderful day 😊
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I hope you're having a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely happy mail. I adore the book washi, I think I actually gasped when I saw it! Such a nice letter, too, I enjoyed getting a glimpse into your life. Exactly the kind of mail I was hoping for when I signed up for this swap. :)

Tack så mycket! Thank you so much for the assorted owls. My d-i-l is so envious each time I receive a swap from you.
Did you finish the 500 pager? What genre of books do you like to read?
Vi ses senare... Catch you later...
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I did finish the 500 pager and picked up another. I usually mix it up with shorter books in between but not lately for some reason. :) I hope you're doing well. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Kim sent me a cute card and a lovely letter, along with several sheets of washi stickers and even a couple of kitty stickers. The blank notecard she included is gorgeous (the kind you want to hoard). I enjoyed reading about her week.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hello Kim,
Thank you for the wonderful envelope of goodies you sent me for the "Notecards, Stickers, and Washi" swap. I love the stickers including the one that I need to color before I can use it. The eashi tapes are Great! I don't have any of the washi tapes you sent me. I love the 2 notecards that I need to color before I can use them. Thanks again for a GREAT pack!!!

Comment: Kim, thank you for the note cards and your great note. The weather here was beautiful and warm for two days and now it has turned cold again. I keep saying to myself that Spring is just around the corner. My husband has to be doing things all the time or else he is driving me crazy. He completely gutted the master bathroom and is doing it over. I have given up trying to keep up with all the dust he is making. The bright note, it will look gorgeous when it is done. Shirley
Response: Good luck with the renovations. A new bathroom will be fantastic! Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hey Kim, thank you thank you thank you so much for the lovely letter and amazing die! I can't wait to use it I can see using it for Halloween ATCs. I moved to Emsdale from Brampton, so I pity that your there putting up with stupid landlords in buildings that are not up to code...hope it gets better cheers
Response: I'm glad you liked the die - I was hoping you'd be able to use it. Have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hej Kim,
Oh my gosh! I am so happy with the contents of this swap from you! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
If my joints were in better shape, I would probably be jumping up and down with excitement right now.
If I may ask, where do you purchase your supplies? Not much choice here; a couple of dollar stores and a tiny Wal-Mart. I have not been too successful looking on-line.
Response: I'm so glad you like everything. I usually purchase supplies at Michaels, dollar stores, scrapbooksteals.com, aliexpress.com and sometimes amazon. You might want to try aliexpress.com depending on what you're looking for. You have to dig around a bit and it can take up to 2 months to arrive, but you can sort by free shipping and there's no tax. Good luck! Happy Swapping!

And I loved reading all about you in your letter, I hope your no snow weather holds out, our cherry trees are in bloom! Thank you for sending such a thoughtful and adorable package!! :D
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it. We finally got snow this week - which I'm not happy about, but can't really complain! :) Happy Swapping!
Comment: hi... AAAAAAAAAAAND thank you! and suddenly, after opening, I realised that it was supposed to be opened on Christmas day - the wrapping paper was a BIG HINT, but the excitement was so big that I just thought "oh, how awkward... santa Claus..." and then, "ooopsssss"... luckily I was careful and "sticked" it back and will be surprised when it is supposed to... ;)
Response: Too funny! I hope you enjoy it - either today or for Christmas. :) Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks so much for this great swap! I now have a few more books to put on my ever-growing To Be Read list (The Dinner, Instructions for the End of the World, andWildflower sound really great!). I love the paper you wrote you list and thoughts on, too :)
Response: I'm glad you found a few to try - I love getting new recommendations from these swaps. Happy Swapping!
Comment: ♥♥♥I absolutely LOVE what you sent! I can't wait to knit up the sushi wallet! The yarn in the kit looks just sublime! The notebook is gorgeous too! Thank you so much for spoiling me for my unbirthday!♥♥♥
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Ooh I had the exact opposite reaction to The Martian. I was laughing out loud the whole time! Ella Minnow Pea has gone onto my 'to-read' list, sounds interesting. I loved The Just City as well. Though I'm having a hard time getting into the second book b/c of the events in the very beginning of it. Simmea & Pytheas' relationship is one of my favorite ones I've ever read! I have put quite a few books you spoke about on my Goodreads "to-read" list. And I'll go see if they are in my library as soon as I'm done here. Well done on reading 115 books last year and good luck with the 125 goal this year!
Response: I know what you mean! I was so sad at the beginning of the book - I loved Simmea and Pytheas relationship - shocking start to the second book. I'm glad you found a few books you found interesting on my list - I love seeing what everyone else is reading and getting recommendations. Happy reading for 2016!
Comment: Wow, i'm speachless, you've send me so much beautiful breath taking stuff! thank you so much for all the pretty things, the Alice in wonderland is my favorite., the owls so cute, i'm really thankfull, you're a great swapper!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I have so many crafty things, it's nice to pass them along to a good home now and then. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap. I love so much the post cards and postalette that you sent me. And how kind of you to include OWL STUFF!!! I love it so =D. Tell me about the Jumbo the elephant documentary did you find it to be sad? I have watched many and it is so sad how the poor elephant died. Do you know I have actually never heard of him until my sister went to university in London Ontario. She would drive to the town to visit the large Jumbo statue she was so moved by it all. Thanks to her experiences became hooked.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. We were so sad about Jumbo - I hadn't heard the story before watching that show and it's such a shame that happened. I hope you have a great week. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the survey, Kim! I enjoyed reading it. You certainly read a lot of books! I like how this survey is a bit different to regular book reviews. I liked your use of washi tape down the sides of the pages, it helped to make it a pretty read!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I had fun doing it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Oh my your swap arrived today!! It took all this time you wonder where all it has been😂 however thank you very much!! I love the hummingbird apron😍 and everything else too!! Hope you have a very Happy 2016🎉🎊
Response: I'm so glad it finally arrived, I was getting worried, it really took its time. Happy New Year and Happy Swapping!
Comment: Kim, I liked your format and enjoyed reading your reading log. I agree w/ you on Bill Bryson ... so many love him, I tried one book & I just didn't like it. I've reall all Gillian Flynn except Dark Places...hopefully in 2016! Happy Reading!
Response: I just finished a Gillian Flynn short story The Grown Up - also a nice quick read. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Comment: Can't wait to start opening my gifts! Thank you! December 14th can't get here soon enough!!! OMG I have started opening - one a day is all I allow myself, so far AWESOME! The swap was awesome I loved everything! Thank you again!
Response: I can't wait either. Hope you enjoy them. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Dear Kim! Thank you for the thick envies, I already wanted to give a heart, but sg wrong with it now. But I'll come back for update after Christmas :) I'm preparing a swap for you, it will be in the mail soon. 01/01 UPDATE: I loved all the postcards and the masking tape pack you sent to me, very lovely, thanks! Happy New Year! :)
Response: You're welcome. Hope you enjoy them. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Kim, I loved this swap from you! I am impressed with the way you presented it, on cards and with the index card at the beginning. Really lovely. I have to agree with you on 'Eat, Pray, Love'. I found it part intriguing, part bizarre and abrupt. I don't think I would get on with Elizabeth Gilbert either, she seems so odd! Thanks again, a good read. :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I had a lot of fun putting it together. I love those index card notecards they are perfect for bookish swaps. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks so much for the pocket letter!! Its really really lovely and I love all the goodies, especially the book sticky notes. I also love the song of ice and fire, but I'm only at book 3. They are really big books :) Hope we can swap again soon. Big wishes Inga
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I really like those book sticky notes too - so cute. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Oh my your fast! I don't have my 10 page letter written yet lol. I almost got the rest of the swaps done though :) Thank you soooo much for the absolutely AWESOME Letter! thank you sooo much! Hugs Sammie
Response: You're welcome - glad you liked it. Thanks for hosting - these are fun swaps to do. Happy Swapping!
Comment: What a FANTASTIC pocket letter!!! I loved the pocket papers and decorations - and all of the generous little goodies you included are WONDERFUL! I am sure I will use everything. Thanks for joining this swap and for making it so special!! Happy August!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I love working on pocket letters - they are so fun! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hi Kim! Thank you for your letter! Sounds like you have had a busy and really fun summer. You've gotten to do so many nice trips! I am going to check out that list website! Thanks for telling me about it!! Love the cards - you always send such nice ones. Have a great day and you brightened mine!!! xx
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the letter. Hope you have a great day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the BIG package. Such a nice variety. I love the tiny little stickers. Especially the sheep. I'm going to glue a magnet on the back of the big paper clip and put it on the frig. These are such fun swaps. Thanks again.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I love doing these too. There's always something neat in them. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hi, Kim, thanks for the books listed on the postcard as well as the ones you are getting from the library. Our library is only 5 minutes drive away--and maybe 10-15 min. walk one way, but since my surgeon for both need total replacements says, "NO," to walking as my regular exercise, I need to drive it. Additionally, it is on a heavy traffic highway without sidewalks most of the way. Anyway, I checked out several audio-books to take with me when I drove from Houston to Dallas to visit my daughter and loved them. I can also sometimes listen to them while working on my art. I hope you had a grand time at your trailer in the woods. What a treasure that would be--and I'm guessing it is not 95 with humidity levels at 80% or higher! I am learning after 38 years to get used to Houston summers, but I still DO NOT like them! Thanks again for book suggestions! They are much appreciated--I'd been debating about reading "Gone Girl" and think I'll give it a try. I just received my pre-ordered "Go Set a Watchman" by the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird." I dropped the two books I'm reading and had to start it immediately! I hope it is worth the excitement.
Response: I've been debating reading Go Set a Watchman - I was going to wait for some reviews first before I pick it up. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Kim - I loved, loved, loved, this pocket letter you made for me. Thank you! I especially liked that you actually wrote a letter & not just a quickie note like most do. Thanks for joining my group. I would love to swap with you again any time. ♥
Response: I'm so glad you liked it - what a sweet comment. I really enjoy making pocket letters and love this group! Happy Swapping!
Response: As I emailed, this package was sent May 29th. It is travelling from Canada to Lithuania. I don't think 2 weeks is long enough to wait before rating an international package swap. I suspect it is still on it's way. I will be happy to resend if it still hasn't arrived in another two weeks. 06/17 Thanks for rerating. I'm glad it arrived.
Comment: Wow! Thank you very much for the little surprises you choose for me. They are all beautiful and I really really love them! My favourite are the washi tape stamps :-)
Thank you for this really nice package!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hello Kim,
I have to say I was not expecting you to resend your swap gift as the first one has been lost to the post monster. But you did and you went above and beyond what you were suppose to send. Thank you very much. I will enjoy opening them!
Response: I'm so glad this one arrived. Thanks again for your patience. I hope you enjoy it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for your swap. I'm sorry you didn't like it more, in that you didn't get the serious and emotional parts that you were looking for. I also read The Martian, and I LOOOOOVED it so much. I'm not at all into soul searching and depressing stuff so I was quite thrilled when Mark came across so jovial, despite his situation. I ended up listening to this all in one night as I couldn't put it down. I think it'll likely end up staying one of my favorites of the year. My hubby is reading it now as well.
Response: I definitely was in the minority on this one, my book club all loved The Martian too. :) Happy reading and happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the letter. I got it yesterday, but only managed to read it this morning before work. It was a nice thing to do before leaving the house for work. Books talk tend to put me in a good mood. :)
Comment: Thank you, Kim. I hear you on. The price of postage. I wish there were more US/Canada only swaps. I don't mind the postage to the States so much, it's Europe that kills me! How did the craft room purge go? It's kinda my nightmare. My precious! Ack!
Response: I haven't started the craft purge yet, hopefully next week. There's so much stuff, I'm overwhelmed! Baby steps... lol
Comment: Wow! What an awesome partner You are! :) You sent me such amazing goodies! I really really really love the planner/diary stickers! THANK YOU for sending such a terrific package my way!!! ♡♡♡♡♡
Response: You're welcome. So glad to hear you liked it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for your swap! :) Awesome that you have been tracking your books that long. I've only been keeping track since 2011, using GoodReads. I wish I had been keeping track for years! Sorry that your friend and boyfriend don't quite realize that them getting you so many books is too much pressure. I know for me, only my hubby and a good friend of mine can even recommend books to me, I just don't read what everyone else reads. I hope you are able to enjoy some of them sometime.
Response: Thanks. I've started a ghost book to keep my boyfriend happy. Luckily I read quickly so I should be able to move on to something I like in a few days. :) Hope you're doing well. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for this happy mail...I was delighted to receive and read your letter. It sounds like you have a very busy time around Christmas. I also loved all the owl stickers...definitely put a smile on my face.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Comment: Thank you-got those frozen chocolate goodies today. Squished, rattled and sniffed! I will probably share most of them but that triangular one is mine! All mine!
Only a few weeks left until Dec-can't wait!
Response: ha ha - the triangular one is hard to disguise. :) I can't wait to open everything too - just a few more weeks. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks Kim. Yours was the first gift for this year I received back in January. Look forward to opening them all
Response: I'm looking forward to opening them too. I had to start a second box for them all. I think I went a bit overboard joining swaps, but it's going to be a lot of fun when I can open them. Hope you enjoy them!
Comment: WOW! What a wonderful package! I was so happily surprised with how great this swap was. Everything was wonderful and I enjoyed it all! The stamp is a particular favorite but I really enjoy the book you included as well! Thank you so much for an excellent swap!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. Happy Swapping!
Comment: How exciting ... thank you for sending in advance Kim...I'm going to tuck it away into my stocking stash! Also, thank you for the fabric swatch...I love the words on fabric...I will use it for a ATC swap :) Kim I just wanted to tell you how much I absolutely love the airmail stamps you sent!!! They are so great, thank you so much :)
Response: I'm glad you can use the fabric swatch - I thought it was nice, but wasn't sure what I'd do with it. Happy holidays and happy swapping!
Comment: Got your package today! Can't wait to open them! I'll post back after I do and update these comments. :) Update: 1228/14 Love all the presents you sent, especially the distress stickles and birdcage stamp! Thanks so much and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
Response: I've been saving a box of stocking stuffers for the holidays too - it's hard waiting but it'll be fun to open everything in December.
Comment: Thank you for your surprises and those little messages! I opened Monday packet today and liked those notecards and envelopes! Can't wait to open others too, this feels almost like Christmas! :D
Response: I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. I had fun putting this one together. :)
Comment: These are all amazing - I was sooo curious to see the Card Catalog ones - OMG, awesome!! I am totally jealous of your trip but very glad you had fun!!!!!! Thanks a lot again - I love the note cards!!! xo
Response: So glad to hear you liked them. I love those card catalog cards, they are by far my favourite. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the package you sent me. I'm very, very curious, but try not to open it before X-mas. The outside already looks very nice!
I will come back for more feedback after I opened it.
Edit 25/12: Opened the present last night. Wow, what a beautiful gifts! Love everything, especially the stamps! Thanks again!
Response: Waiting is definitely the hard part. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Love the little envelope and library card! Where did you get them? I haven't read your review yet because I am in the midst of reading the same book for this swap! I love it so far.
Response: I bought those notecards at Indigo last year. I love them so much, I've been hoarding them. Each one has a different author. I figure other book lovers will like them as much as I do, so I should start using them. Glad to hear you're enjoying the book!
Comment: Hi Kim - Thank you for all the wonderful journaling cards - I don't have any of these and they're lovely. Thank you for the extra little goodies too, love them. Your thought a day journal sounds fun - I might look into doing one. All the best and happy swapping Jane x jep1068
Response: I'm glad you liked them. It was fun sharing cards and getting some new ones to use. :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely mail! I like your idea for a drive in movie... sadly we have none here. Isaac and I have other competitions though, just as silly. Being Hungarian, I would love to go to Prague. How exciting! And September is a good time to travel, less families and university students. So jealous! And thanks for the address labels! I SO need those...
Response: You're welcome. Hope you are doing well and are enjoying your summer!
Comment: Thanks so much for your letter and the teas! I laughed when reading your story about meticulously organizing all the books on your shelf, because I did the same thing! I still do, in fact. Every now and then I have the urge to completely re-organize all of my books. Hope you are reading something wonderful right now!
Response: It's good to hear I'm not the only one who does this with her books - my family thinks I'm a little crazy. ha ha Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hello you! Thanks for the happy mail! Loved the postcards, it's hard to find interesting ones. Sounds like we have boyfriend types in common. Mine loves to fish and when we go camping I catch up on my reading while he explores where to best torment the fish. I have learned to enjoy it too, though. I love fishing from the kayak. I switch between reading, paddling and fishing. We have discovered some wonderful and remote spots. So fun!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the postcards. Our boyfriends do sound similar! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Wow!!! I LOVE ALL the many things you sent. Thank you for giving me so many of my favorites ~ very thoughtful! And some items I have not even seen before, like the vellum pocket with card, Mickey Mouse chipboards & tab clip! Adore your classy envelope,too. You really made my day - thanks for a terrific swap!
Response: You're welcome. Glad to hear you liked everything. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Oh my goodness, Kim, I simply cannot express how wonderful the parcel was that I received from you. Your generosity was amazing. All of the smash booking stuff is fabulous and I loved how you had packaged everything and left little notes. It was so much fun opening it all. I think the thing I love the most though is the necklace which is really beautiful. What a wonderful, wonderful swap. There honestly should be a special gold heart available which I could give to say thank you for this. I think this is one of the loveliest swaps I have ever received.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I have to say, I probably spent the most time on this swap of any of the swaps I've done - it was so much fun to put together. I can't wait to do another. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Super amazing parcel! Love how you wrapped everything separately, and I've already tried the caramel (red candy bars, forgot their names). The craft goodies will come in handy as well, just my style. Plus the handcrafted necklace is gorgeous. Thank you very much, a lot of thought went into this and I love it <3
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. This was my first swap of this type and I had a lot of fun working on it. I'm looking forward to doing more of them. Thanks for hosting!
Comment: AWESOME Un-Birthday Presents!!! A really fun and enjoyable swap to open and I could smell that gorgeous amazing soap as soon as I opened the envie! I LOVED everything, the Teas are perfect for me, and I I don't think we have in the USA the brand of the metal accents and metal label holders and they are both amazing and will be put to good use! You totally get my sense of humor with the lil notebook with the kitty on the vespa wearing the sunglasses, and I love the Paris notecards and envies as well! And smashbook item as well and hot cocoa too! Plus my teas! Thankyou, you definitely picked out my favorite types of things!!! Im so thrilled you joined my swap!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for hosting - I had a lot of fun with this one.
Comment: What a super snowman tag! I really love the whole package you sent. It is going to be difficult to keep it wrapped until Christmas, but I'm going to try. Thank you so very much for the swap. Sending you some sunshine and smiles!
Response: Keeping them wrapped until Christmas is definitely the hard part. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hi Kim! Thanks so much for the letter and the goodies too! I loved reading about your week, sounds like you have a lot going on. I might have to try one of those FitBit thingies you mention! Also, happy belated birthday!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the birthday wishes!
Comment: Thank you so much for the notecards. I love all three. It has been cold here, but only a couple of snows. I am ready for spring and working outside and in the garden. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness!
Comment: Wow. I just came back from the mail depot to collect your parcel, and now a 2nd one drops through the letterbox. Thanks so much Kim. They're already hidden away, and I'll try to keep it that way until Christmas :)
Response: I have to hide mine in the back of a closet so I won't be tempted to open them. It's going to be a lot of fun come December. :)
Comment: Thank you so much, Kim!!!! Wow, what an amazing package! You really went above and beyond! I loooooove the owl bag! How cute! And everything was wrapped in pretty paper - what a happy day for me!! I love it all and you're right:we can all use some happiness!!! Thank you!!!! xoxo
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. Happy swapping!
Comment: WOW! What an amazing fat envelope stuffed with goodness! My favorite is the DREAMY fish postage stamps. LOVE them. They are going to be the main focus of the page. Front and center. I adore the man bent over with a lit match and the Picasso-ish paintings. Great PCs and butterfly images. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! It really shows.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed everything. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Haha, this parcel took forever (seems like Canada-Germany is not a speedy route), but it was SO worth the wait! Thank you so much for the huge bunch of stationery items and other bits, it was great going through everything and there's lots of things for me to use in future project. Thank you for sharing such gorgeous items with me. :)
Response: I can't believe it took this long to get to you! Canada Post really took their time. I'm glad you enjoyed the package - I had a lot of fun pulling things together. :)
Comment: Hi Kim!! I got the swap today and it's awesome!! Thank you for sending me so many cards! They are all really pretty. The bright colors are so nice to see because it has been an awful winter here too!!! Sounds like you had a nice Valentine's Day. Spring is on the way!!! Thanks for joining!
Comment: Thanks for the interesting cards, and letter. I can't wait to get to our campsite either (ours is about 1.5 hours from Calgary, near Sundre). It'll be awhile, though - dropping to a high of -20 on Friday, -22 on Saturday. Crap!!
Comment: Hello Kim,
Thank you for the wonderful notecards you sent me for this swap. You sent me a nice variety of cards that will be a wonderful addition to my Notecard Collection. I love them all. I enjoyed reading your note.
Comment: Kim: What a nice note and parcel! You should definitely try zentangles - they are fun, and once you learn a couple of patterns and practice them, you can make some cool art without a lot of supplies.
Comment: What a wonderful envelope you sent! I love all the wonderful smash goodies you sent, and can't wait to use them in my books! Thank you SO much for the beautiful Beatrix Potter card and stickers, and for the Mary Engelbreit card. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Hi Kim! I really loved all the little bits you chose for my journal! The card and yellow envelope were great too. I hope to swap with you again soon! It always makes my day getting something from a fellow Canadian :)
Comment: Eee two whole rolls of deco tape? (covers everything)
I'd say that either you got lucky or you did take a look at my profile for this one. So many things that I love. Hot chocolate, and tea... man, why have I never found that brand of tea before... and I love the little notebook. Thank you!
Response: Glad to year you liked everything. Happy Holidays!
Comment: Hi Kim, Thanks so much for the stocking. I was so happy everything was wrapped or else I would've had to look! I appreciate the little card too. I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you! I haven't opened any yet, I will save them for when I need a bit of a sit-me-down-stop-stressing-time, which I'm definitely going to need this month. I do all my Christmas stress in November so I can relax in December, bake and watch movies and generally enjoy the season, but it makes November super busy!
Comment: Can't wait to open the gifts! Im saving them for December 25th :) Might add a heart then!
Update: Went ahead and opened the packages...this was the BEST washi tape ever! Also enjoy the note cards. Thanks! Adding a heart :)
Comment: Thanks! I will come back to rerate with a heart when I open these. Can't wait! 12/04/13 - opened everything the other day and enjoyed the Mars bar last night. Yum! Thank you for a great selection of new favorites!
Comment: It was very nice to read your note. I am glad that our Thanksgiving is a little further away than yours is (we have Thanksgiving here at our house and I haven't started thinking about the menu yet). I hope you have a lovely time with your family. Good luck on your road test!
Comment: Thank you for my great owl bag of goodies!!!
I love it all ---the charm is so cute and the tissues and notebook! I really truly appreciate that you read my profile and sent me some cute address labels:) Thank you♥
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I love owls and had a lot of fun putting this swap together.
Comment: Thankyou - I love everything you sent to me...i was especially excited when i got the cute "swap-bot" card and the "J-hearts" playing card, everything is cute cute cute and most definitely will come in handy. happy swapping xoxo
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the wonderful things, that you sent to me. I absolutely love everything. Some of the things are actually things that I have had on my wishlist for a long time, so I was very exited to open the envelope:)
Comment: Hello Kim,
Thank you for the 2 notecards you sent me for this swap. Both are very nice and I will use them as part of note writing that I do when I complete a swap. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Comment: Thanks for sharing the washi tape samples with extra samples! You have ones I've never seen! I took a few minutes to 'rate' them but it's what I do when I like things and admire details :) Cheers!
Response: Glad you liked them - I'm completely addicted and can't wait to get new samples to use.
Comment: Thanks so much for the Smash stuff! My favorite piece was the Olympia typewriter. I'm going to glue it down right now so I don't decide to be generous and use it on an ATC or something that I don't get to keep, haha! Love the peacock card too - such lovely colors!
Comment: Hello Kim,
Thank you for the two notecards you sent me for this swap. One was very cute and the other very beautiful. I liked both of them. I will add them to my notecard collection and look forward to using them.
Comment: Loved your handmade card, very cute and the ones inside as well. Hope your ankle is better. Happy Belated Birthday! And did your friend get on TPIR??? I watched that show for over 20 years, always thought it'd be fun to be on it!
Response: She didn't get called all down, but it was a lot of fun! Thanks for the birthday wishes. Happy Swapping.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful cards. Stickers were not allowed, but you did such a good job with the stickers. Nice first try on making cards. Keep it up!!
Response: I must have misunderstood, I didn't realize that no sticker slapping meant I couldn't use stickers at all. I thought they were still allowed tastefully. I'm glad you liked them - I enjoyed making them.
Comment: Hi Kim and thank you so much for a great swap! Your card is lovely; great layout, super colours and the co-ordinating envelope is just perfect. I'd say you have got the hang of it already!
Thank you too for the extra card AND the fascinating card of the gondolas in Venice, what a wonderful photo. anni :o)
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I'm enjoying learning how to make cards. :)

Comment: Wow! great stocking items!!! thanks so much I can totally tell that you read my profile :) the earrings are beautiful and the address labels are great...also can't wait to use the decorative tape...Merry Christmas

Comment: Hi Kim,

Response: Thanks for reading! I enjoyed recording what I was up to. :)
Comment: Thanks very much for your great pkg! I love anything to do with lemon and I will make those cookies. I'm curious as to that piece of paper you sent with one side of partial old recipes ~ it seems to me I would like the recipe book it came from!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I hope you enjoy the cookies too! :)
Comment: Thank you for the FABULOUS notecards ! I don't think I can bring myself to every use the book or kids ones ! They go in my save book. If you ever want to do a notecard swap please let me know !
Response: I'm glad you liked them. I love doing notecard swaps - I'd be happy to do a private swap!
Comment: I have to confess that I did not have enough discipline to leave your package untouched until December... so I can already tell you that I really loved everything you included!! :) Thank you so much!
Response: It's hard to wait so long. I'm glad you enjoyed everything. :)
Comment: What a delight to open all the goodies, thank you so very, very much!! I was probably supposed to wait until Christmas but there's no way I could have. I especially liked the needle holder, it will get used right away! :-) Happy Holidays & Happy Swapping!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed everything. I had fun putting it together. :)
Comment: Oooh... I get a lot of tempting mail these days, but this is one of the hardest to keep away from. Good thing there was an envelope to open (LOVE the card!!!), so I got to open something ;P Got. To. Hide. Them.
Response: I feel the same way. It's going to be hard to wait. :)
Comment: WOW!! What a treat to open my mailbox today. :-) LOVE, love, love the notecards - those little tiny envelopes are so cute - and the postcards, tags and tea. Those big note cards I am tempted to hoard .. LOL .. but I gotta keep the love circulating, right? :-) Really awesome package, Thank you so much, wish I could give more hearts. Julie
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I love the little notecards myself. :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely tote bag, and I love the Starbucks cup sleeve soo much!! What a pity I cant download the songs for iTunes, I think it's only valid in your country, but I love the card anyway ;-)
Response: I'm glad you like it and that it arrived so quickly! Too bad the iTunes card didn't work, but it was worth a try. :)
Comment: Thank you SOOOOOOOO MUCH for the Green LP!!!! It arrived today in a perfect condition. It was so nicely packed, and when I opened it I "discovered" so many tasteful surprises.You really put so much in this parcel, and I wish I could give you more hearts!!!! Thanks and hugs
Response: You're welcome - I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
Comment: Thanks a lot for your lovely parcel full of surprises. Your are very nice. let me know if soemthing from france could please you and if you'd fancy the idea of discovering more about me and my country
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. It was a lot of fun to put together. :)

Response: I'm glad you enjoyed everything. It was fun to put together. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package! I loved opening it and going through all the goodies you sent. I love cupcakes, and one can never have too many muffin cups! Everything was great! Have a lovely holiday season! Tana
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it - have a great Christmas! :)
Comment: Thanks for the great package. I loved everything! Green is my favorite color, as you knew, so I was thrilled! I really really really love that little notebook. I have it right on my desk and keep staring at it. Thanks again! SK
Response: I'm so glad you liked the notebook, when I saw it, I really thought it would be perfect for you. :)
Comment: I got the package! YAY! The pink items are great. I needed more ribbon and how did you know I liked scrapbook stuff? lol :P I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pink matchbox as well. It was a perfect added surprise to an already great package. I always wanted one of those! Thank you!- JDC
Response: Yay! I'm glad you liked everything. I'm really enjoying making matchboxes and couldn't resist adding one in your package.
Comment: First of all, I opened my package and it had the most beautiful rose smell ever! I don't know if it was on purpose but it was amazing :P I loved everything with the viking magnet (how did you even find that??!) and the tarot cards being my favorite. Then those mermaids! They were so adorable!! Thank you thank you!!
Response: Yay! I'm glad you liked it. When I read that you like Vikings on your profile I figured I'd never see anything like that. Sure enough a few days later I saw that magnet at a random store I was in and had to get it. :)
Comment: Wow, Kim, what can I say..? Thank you soooooomuch for the lovely package! Not only the T-Shirts (and the one for Jakob is extra-sweet!) but so many other goodies! Fridge-Magnet, Pens, Notepad, Stickers.....and again chocolate :o) Thank you so much, you are a great Swapper! Hope you receive the second parcel within these days....
Response: I'm so glad it arrived. I was worried it was never going to get there. I'm glad you liked the package - I had a lot of fun picking things out. If you ever need anything from Toronto - let me know! :)
Comment: Kim, This was one of the most thoughtful packages ever! I am just so excited to have these beautiful cards!!! Thank you so much for your creativity and time spent putting all of these cute penguins together! I really love them! You are a WONDERFUL SWAPPER! THANKS SO MUCH!
Response: I'm so glad you like them. I haven't had any experience making them but had a blast putting them together. :)
Comment: Thanks for the awesome yarn ball, Kim! It really was fun undoing the ball and watching all of that cool stuff fall out. There were a number of things that were very unusual and that I'll be able to use when I make stuff...like the charms you included that I can use in charm bracelets! I could tell that you had fun putting it together and I really appreciate the time you took to make it extra special. Many thanks again!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. The yarn ball was so much fun - I can't wait to try another one. :)
Comment: Thank you for the abundance of goodies. Speaking of the Leafs, I like Matt Sundin. I love that he didn't waive to be traded and stuck by his team. So often a hockey player will go for the most $ as if that is all that is important. Kudos to Matt Sundin and the Leafs, despite the standings.
Response: I'm with you - I like that Matt Sundin stuck by his team. It's nice to see money not be the main motivator for once. :)
Comment: It was a joy to open the package and see that you have read my profile! Thank you oh so much for the wonderful items. My 23 year old daughter thought that was a neat idea for the seeds also. I will let you know what they are when I Plant them every thing was awesome♥
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I thought the seeds were really cool and I'd love to hear what grows! :)
Comment: wow, you sure got a lot into the envie and for only 1 stamp. Thanks for all the wonderful goodies.
Response: This was my first time doing this type of swap and I grossly underestimated the weight of the envelopes - 2 of the 3 got sent back to me for more postage, so I'm glad to hear you received yours.
