Comment: Thank you for the pocket letter. I really appreciate it.
On a different note. I am not complaining but for future swap, you may want to get it weighed at the PO, I ended up having to pay postage to receive it.
Response: Oh my gosh 🤤🤤🤤🤤 I'm so sorry. I will reimburse you. Please let me know how much
Comment: Thank you! I love that you found a project using the full square! I will find something fun to keep in the bag, maybe a small cross stitch project when I travel! I keep using small plastic bags. Thinking I really need to sew a bag to use, now i'll use this one, the fabric is so beautiful! Thanks for the extra sewing and crafting goodies, very sweet of you and I will enjoy using them :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything!! Thank you for the hearty. :) <3
Comment: Debbie, just found a few cards w my paid bills pile! Checked to see if rated and found I hadn't . Sorry I am late but I loved the stockings on the card. They looked like they were on a clothesline! What a great idea! Thanks so much, Happy new year and happy swapping!
Response: No worries. Thank you for the heart ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thank you!!! I wish I could give you a bunch of hearts and a great big hug for this swap! I absolutely love it. We open a small gift every day in December. When your swap came in the mail, I decided to open one and save the rest. I was so excited after opening the angel that I couldn't wait and opened them all. The angels and the bird are awesome! You have made me so very very happy! Thank you again for making me such awesome gifts! :) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Hugs, Christina
Response: You are so welcome. I am glad you liked everythinf!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Hugs back ðŸ’Ÿ
Comment: You sent me three ATC's! Thank you so much! I love them all and they're in my first page! Is this your first time with watercolor? It reminds me of my initial originality and freedom... before a rigid class got ahold of me... don't let them do it I say!!! Stay unique and free!
Response: I have tried a couple of times i wish i was better at i. Thank you for the heart and im glad you liked it. :)
Comment: Hey Debbie! Thank you so much for the Christmas package!! :) I have tucked my little treasures in to my Christmas stocking, which is actually huge one that I had gotten years ago! I love the ATC verse you sent to me! It is just beautiful and that is a verse that is one of my favorites! I always love it when I see your name in my mailbox!! :) xxoo Shannon
Response: I am so glad you liked it. God is good. You are sweet :) Thank you for the heart :)
Comment: I love that song "Soul on Fire" by Third Day. I have heard that song "Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place."
You spelled my name Lynda instead of Linda. It's unique to have it spelled with a "y" instead of an "i."
Thanks for the little cross and the little decorations for card making.
Response: I'm so sorry for miss spelling your name. That's how my sister in law spells it and I should have pay more attention
Comment: Hi Debbie! I love the quotes you sent! They are so uplifting and I love the way you made the cards! I also like the "Im possible" card! I had never thought of the word that way! Love it! Thank you so very much for such a wonderful swap! :)
Response: I'm glad you liked them. It was my pleasure!!!! Thank you for the hear. ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Hi Debbie! What a fabulous card! Thank you so very much! I love the verses you chose! And yes, I do believe! :) I hope you had a wonderful Easter and were able to celebrate with your hubby after his work! Blessings to you! Shannon

Comment: Thank you for the cute pink package :) My kids enjoyed the candy--they snatched it as soon as I opened the package! I gave the scarf to my niece...she loves anything pink! Thank you for making it for me!
Response: I'm glad you liked it but did keep anything for yourself.? :)
Comment: Thank you for the New Year and St. Patrick's day ATC. The texture on the clovers was cool. Would love to know what you use.

Comment: Debbie, you've made ME "smile a lot"! First, I love this elegant metallic ATC...I adore the addition of the jewelry findings. And then we come to the extras...this was like opening a Christmas present! I can tell that you read my profile, and you shared lovely jewelry and findings that are exactly my taste. Thank you SO MUCH!
Response: Your welcome. I so glad you liked everything :) Thank you for the heart :)
Comment: Thank you for my two unique couple's names theme ATCs and for the coffee/tea. Especially for the coffee bags, never seen them in any of the stores I shop at. I usually go to the Korean market and buy the big bag of instant coffee stick but I think I found a new favorite instant coffee brand â™¥ :)
Response: Your welcome. glad you liked everything!!! Enjoy the coffee and tea :) Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC and all the extra goodies. I just got home from housesitting at dads and got your package. No extra postage was needed thank you so much and hope you have a great Thanksgiving

Comment: Love the Colors in the Crocheted Dishcloth I got in today's Mail.... and Thank you for the FQ of Fall Fabric too...Can't wait to Try your Recipe when you send it.. Thank you for joining my Swap.! ! I got the Sucker and am eating it right now.. and will have to try the cake recipe...! ! (10/29)
Response: Glad you liked it. Thanks for letting me join your swap. I sent you a message. Your recipe is on :) Good. Let me know what you think of the cake :)
Comment: I'm sorry that I feel I have to give you a 3 for this swap. But the swap requirements state that the items sent must be new. I received a package of brads with some missing, the plastic Christmas ornament was showing some black on the back and 1 of the 2 vials of glitter seem to be full. The fabric was really cute and the brads that were sent were also cute. I will say a prayer that things get better for you soon. Take care. Ok Debbie I can understand your responses for some of the items but the brads had some used from them. I sent you a picture to show you what I received. As of today 11/16 I still have not received the items to be able to change this rating to a 5, so I guess your rating will stay a 3. I have emailed you about another swap that I have not received from you so I do hope you will follow through on the resend. Please I do not want to have to give you another low rating. I really hope things are getting better for you. Take care.
Response: If I resend will you change it to a 5? Every thing was new. the brads hadn't even been opened and neither were the glitter. the ornament was homemade. it said could be
homemade.. please send a pic to me of what you are talking about to [email protected] If you look the 2 that look like they are missing aren't.
I took the glitter out of a brand new pack and shared them between 2 swaps
I haven't received an email yet
I saw the picture. I didn't use them so Im not sure how that happened. I will resend a couple of things. But I never opened that package. I guess I should have look at it better. Sorry about that. I wouldn't have done that on purpose. I kind of wish you would have messaged me so I had a chance to make it riht before you rated me
Comment: 2 years later...am rating you a five for finally receiving it. that's because i love lightnings and thunders as you do too :P it calms me so i can sleep better,exactly as it happens to you. hope you have a lovely day! (p.s. would have rated sooner,but...holidays)
Response: Thank you for rating a 5 much appreciated. Hope you had a wonderful Holiday :)
Comment: Thanks for the car ATC! It reminds me of a neighbors car from my childhood. The man had 3cars ( very unusual then) and drove this one on Weekends!. Thanks for the extras too! Awesome ATC frame!
Response: Your welcome I'm glad you liked it. That is awesome about your neighbor. Thank you for the heart
Comment: Sorry to rate a 1, as I am aware of your unfortunate and heart-breaking circumstance. My thoughts and prayers are with you as I just recently lost my grandmother as well. The swap deadline was Jul 16, 2012, and the last message I received was on Jul 18, 2012. I will re-rate if I receive anything. Sep 14, 2012: I received a message saying that you are sending back my house I made for you. I did not ask for it back, nor is this acceptable to "make up" for ratings. Please do not worry about sending me something else, and I wish you well. // Sep 12, 2014: Thank you for sending out this swap with the two chunky houses! I hope you are doing well. Happy swapping.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Thank you so much for the wonderful swap! What a super fun package! :) The paper sunflower is so beautiful! I love it! I have never seen a gift bow like that! Very cute! The coffee is perfect! Folgers was my Grandfather's favorite kind of coffee, so it was such a sweet reminder of him. Thank you so much for all the time you put into picking out such wonderful treasures for me! :) It was such a fun swap!
Response: Your welcome. I am so glad you like everything and I had fun making up the package :) thank you for the heart
Comment: I found some images with a search:
Thank you for the ATCs and goodies.
Response: Thank you for the heart an rating me. Thanks for the search results!!!!!! :)
Comment: Oh my goodness, Debbie! I'm speechless! Yet I'm still shouting here... Where to begin? Surely I won't run out of socks on this adventure with all the jewelry parts. And candy to keep me going, oh wow! You put so much effort into this. The bag and the little purse are very cool. It is an adventure in its own right to go through all this stuff. You're wonderful!
Response: Im so glad you liked everything!! Thank you for the heart :) Injoy
Comment: Oh my goodness you are an amazing swap partner!!! Thank you so much for all of the bright and fun squares that you sent me. I wished that there was a higher rating available to give you. Many thanks and happy swapping!!!
Response: Your welcome. Thank you for the heart and you are sweet :)
Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely card, tea, note and ATC! That was a cute story about your dog. lol My dog did something similar but he'd ate crayons! lol You can imagine the results! Thanks again for a lovely swap!
Response: Your welcome. Thank you for the heart. Yes I can imagine LOL

I told my partner for the Valentines Icicle doll swap I so wish I had those when i did her doll!!! They will be so cute on one... i will be using them on dolls....i have a swap coming up with a pocket & surprise....it may just be a heart ;-) A denim doll trimmed in red;-) CUTE! I am enjoying the soft caramel now! ;-) The zebra matchbox is great and i luv the card you made, such pretty paper and I luv all the verses you put on it!!!! THANX SO MUCH! Blessings, cc
Response: I am so glad you Liked everything!!! Thank you for the heart to. I tried to find something on your profile you liked and when I saw zebra a light bulb went off in my heard for the match box. You made my day! God bless and have fun with your dolls. sounds fun :) Hugs back
Comment: Unfortunately there has been no communication from you, I found out from your profile that your Mom passed away, and I am truly sorry. You had a month from when partners were assigned to complete the swap, and now it is 2 weeks past the send date. When the squares do arrive I will rerate. **Update** Squares arrived today, Sept. 17, Thank you for sending. If they hadn't been so late I would have given you a 5.
Comment: Sept. 13th-- Wow, you actually sent me the matchbox that I made for this swap! Only, it's been scribbled on with a marker. Nice. And the fact still remains that you marked sent when you never did send, regardless of what has happened in your life. If I would have known I'd just get my own matchbox back, all messed up and with less items, I would have never created this swap.
July--I'm really sorry to do this, but...the last swap I received from you was late, and I rated you a 5 because you contacted me. But this was before the issues you're having now. You marked sent on this swap about a week after the send date, with no communication this time, so I would have rated you a 3, anyways. If it ever shows up, I will change it to a 3. I'm sorry about your mom, but there was a problem with you sending late before that.
Comment: Debbie, Thank you for the green ATC. What technique did you use? I have never seen anything quite like it. The tag you included is also very pretty. I really like what you sent. Thanks for a nice swap. Sue
Response: Your welcome :o) I cant remember what I did Im sorry. Im glad your liked it. I really love making atcs.
Comment: I am giving you a 5, but i was dissapointed with this swap. You had sent me 2 bracelets, one i love and the other i think is a little unconsiderate. My profile says on it that i dont not want religious items and you sent me a bracelet with little crosses on it. Next time please play a little more attention to what someones profile says but they may not be as nice as i am being.
Response: I deleted what I origanaly wrote. Didnt mean to offend anyone.
Comment: God Blessed me with you as a partner. I give you a page of hearts. I love what you did and how you did it. thank you very much
P.S. The treat you sent is worth another page of hearts! ((hugs))
Response: Im so glad you liked it. I hope the treat wasnt all melted when you got it. Thank you so much for the heart! :o) God bless you
Comment: Thanks for the ATCs. It's sad that you didn't put any infos in the back of it like it was asked in the swap description, but I guess you forgot.
Response: Yes I did forget.. UGH. I remember after the fact. It was to late. I have never forgotton. I was so engrossed in school becasue I couldnt get it right. I guess I shouldnt have been doing atcs when I an sopposed to be doiing school LOL.. I finely got it right and got an A yeahhhh
Response: You didnt like it did you? I will make you aniother one if you want.. After I made it I didnt like it but I had already made it. Plu s I thought maybe you would like it. Sorry about that!!! Let me know. I really dont mind resending :o)
Comment: Thank you for the ATC and the extra butterfly sticker & coaster magnet. Very cool, I thought it was a coaster, then looked at the back, nope, surprise! :)
Response: Your welcome and thank you for the heart! We have a farm and ranch store here, and they sell those coaster. I like ti make magnets so I thought that would be nice. I am having a birthday party tommorow night, and I am embelishing them with bos and little birds I am haveing a ball doing it :o) glad you liked everything

Response: So glad you like it. I wish I could see you 2 wearing them lol :o) Merry Christmas
Comment: Hi there! First off, let me say I'm sorry for the terrible delay in your rating. I didn't have internet everyday this summer so I had a backlog of ratings. I just wanted to let you know that I didn't forget about rating you :D Thanks again for being a great swap partner. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I'm sorry again for being so late! Better late than never?
Comment: Thank you so much for being so understanding and for being prepared to send something else in a bid to amend matters! I really appreciate it. Incidentally I hadn't had Swedish Fish in about 7 years but I love them just as much as I remembered! Needless to say they didn't last long. ;)
Response: Thank you so much for the 5 and the heart. Im glad you enjoyed them :o)
Comment: Wow! I love that you have a tuxedo kitty - mine is also a tuxedo AND he has the little black splotch on his nose. Not quite as much as your kitty but it's still there so I think I will have to say that Bandit is my favorite of your pets, for that reason alone :)
Response: thank you Bandit is a sweetie :o) I bet you cat is pretty
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the great email! Loved seeing your family photo and reading about you! You were so sweet and chatty, it has been a sort of rough day, so your email was a welcome change! Wishing you all the best and who knows, we might be swap partners again at some point! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Im sorry to about your bad day and I am glad my email helped. thank you for the nice comment. And it would be great to swap with you again!! hugs back :o)
Comment: Love it! I haven't received anything handmade before-- beautiful! I like the texture of the paper--did you make it? It's cool even if you didn't. :) Also, the enclosed message was so timely, it really blessed me. Thank you
Response: Im glad you liked it. I didnt make the paper. I got it from a craft store here. they said that they got it from another country. I cant remember where but I have had it for about 7 or 8 years. It is acually a diary. I searched up how to make ppaper and I am going to give it a try. I am glad you were blessed by the message. God bless you
Comment: oh how blessed are you with your sweet & funny little zoo! lol! I loved all the quirky stories you shared about each one-they are all just darling and i know they must bring so much joy and laughter to your lives! thanks for sharing your babies-give 'em all a pet from me! :)
Response: thank you and i will do :o). we are blessed!!!!!
Response: Sorry it was late but I did tell you ahead of time that I would be late. again Im sorry! but I hope you liked them. I will try and get then patterns also.. I dont remember what I did.. uggg that was my bad I should have remembered
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the sweet comment! I try to be a good Mom and hope my kids realize, even parents mess up now and again! We are so lucky to have such great sons! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks for the nice comment. I would love to see the inchworm pics and video. That would be great.
Response: Your welcome.. I put all my stuff on cd,s so as soon as I find it I will show you. I am going to add you as a friend because you might get to far down and I wont be able to find you LOL if that ok.
Comment: Hi Debbie, I got your cool bags in the mail today. I loved them both. OF course, my kid wanted them, but I said NO!!!!!!!!! The one you made is so cool and Leanne really liked the yellow flower on it. They really cheered me up today and thank you for the packet of seeds. Which store did your other bag come from>? Every time I use these bags I will think of you. Loved your note too. I can see why your nickname is Debbiesuesmiles. You make everyone smile right back at you. Again, thank you, I just loved them.... You didn't happen to sign up for the Palliable swap that was canceled did you?? I am so disappointed. I got my envelope ready with all the stuff last night and today they said it was canceled. I would love to have a swap with someone for all these goodies. Would you be interested??? IF not it is ok. Love, MaryAnn maryannr1742
Response: Hi MaryAnn I got the other bag at Price Chopper it is a grocery store here. Thank you for all of your nice words!!! :o) I didnt sign up for it but would be willing to swap. What would you like to swap. What was the swap for? I wonder why it was canceled? I am so glad you liked them. If you daughter wants a bag I can maek her one. just let me know what her favorite colors are
Comment: Debbie ~ I LOVE IT! Both of them, you are so talented. They both look great on my frig. I love having easy access to a pen! Thank you so much! Yay to your hubby, he did a great job packing! Thank you again!
Response: Thank you for saying that. I will tell my husband you said that
Comment: Love the colours on your cards Debbie! The dragonfly one is my favourite. Not only because of the dragonflies but also because of the verse. I don't think I have ever read that verse about the angels and I love it! Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you for the nice package! I can't wait to have a cup! I'm just curious about what kind of tea is in the ziplocks? :0)
Response: Im so sorry about that. I should have wrote on the bag. the spicy smelling one is call bingel spice. it is really good. the other one is black cherry. how did the candy turn out .? I guess some I sent was all crused. Hope yours isnt to.!!!!!
Comment: So, no I wasn't delighted when I opened the package and saw several crushed mini candy bars and 2 packages of unlabeled tea, you bagged it yourself tea. Due to how sloppy the overall package was put together It appears that you simply threw things into a package to be done with the swap.
I simply rated you a 5, b/c in essence, you completed the min. request for the swap.
