Comment: Best happy mail. Been sick today. I am still going through my goodies. Thank you so much for such an amazing swap. Wish I could give you more hearts. You picked out so many things that I love.
Comment: Moms letting me use her computer again. I have read your letter Buster and I also get cases of the zoombies and mom stomps her feet and it makes me go wild! Moms can be so funny at times! I am really happy you mom and dad found you! My sister Honey Badger was bought from a couple on craigs list she was just used to breed pug puppies it took a while for me to trust her as she wasn't nice but we are bestest friends now I am happy mom and dad rescued her! I have many pug friends that have their tongue hanging out due to teeth issues and they do great! Thank you for the photos I am sure we would be best friends if he meant at the dog park!
Comment: WOW - all I can say is wow. From the cover all the way to the back page, this is just amazing!(And I totally get wanting pages to be themed - I think I do that sometimes, too!) Believe it or not, purple is one of my favorite colors! I have a room that I'm redecorating in purple for my Prince collection, and that canvas will make the perfect addition! Thank you so much <3
Comment: Oh my gosh I love this!! This was my first Magpie Journal swap so I've never really seen one before...this is awesome. I love what you worked with and how you put it together. Thank you so much, and for the goodies too! <3
Comment: Vicki, thank you so much for sharing your magpie bits and pieces with me! I love the vintage ephemera you have used! One of my favorite pages is "The Circus is Coming To Town"!! Have a great summer!
Comment: Love the bracelet you created with the buttons, very pretty, creative and wearable.
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I might have left it a little long since I used my big ( I think) wrists to measure on. The links are pretty easy to remove if you need it smaller though. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you! first, I totally get why you used bags, I've done that before. Who wants to spend an hour tracking down their bubble wrap?
Thank you for the beautiful glass! I never have enough coasters, I swear, so these will be out on my coffee table asap. And I love the bowl, so pretty. You picked some gorgeous items, thank you!
Comment: You do not know how much I ADORE this pizza ninni!!! The execution is just so creative; namely the giant ric rac for the sauce and the gingham fabric that looks like a pizza restaurant's table cloth. You did a fantastic job! I also loved the pizza slice it had in it's hand. The washi tape is wonderful as well. Thank you for an awesome swap!
Response: I'm so glad you like it! Thank you again for the extension in sending it to you. The pizza slice in it's hand I only stuck on with regular tape in case you wanted to affix it elsewhere. The patch is supposed to be permanent once the plastic backing comes off, so I thought I'd leave it up to you. Thank you for the great rating. Happy swapping !
Comment: Thank you so much for the note and the assortment of teas that you sent me! I am looking forward to trying them all. Your weather there sounds lovely - we've had such up and down temperatures here. One day hot, one day cold. But for the cold nights (like tonight) curling up with a cup of tea is great!
Comment: Thank you for such a lovely mug rug. The fabric is adorable, I haven't seen anything like it. I have enjoyed looking at the cute animals. Thanks also for the hot chocolate. It will be enjoyed during the holidays.
Comment: WOWâ¤ðŸ’—ðŸ’™ðŸ’š This deserve endles hartsðŸ’ŒðŸ’ŸðŸ’žðŸ’ðŸ’›ðŸ’œ I love the pocketletter and all its extra. I got to laugh when I read the letter. In Norway the gifts are opend around 7-9 pm on the 24th.
Comment: WOW WOW WOW I am just overwhelmed with this altered tin! It embodies everything I love about dia de los muertos! Love how you used tins within the larger tin---now why haven't I thought of that---it reminds me of a configuration box. thank you for sharing your amazing talent with me and participating in my swap:)
Response: I'm so thrilled to hear you are wowed by it! It was a challenge to get it to look just the way I wanted but a fun challenge all in all. Thank you for the rating. ðŸ™‚
Comment: I made my cats POOF when I opened the package because I squealed so much. THANK YOU OMG THIS IS AWESOME I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! I have stationary now! Adorable and beautiful stationary! Lots of postcards and JEWELRY STUFF! My cats are hiding because I'm bouncing around like a child. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Comment: This Ninni is fantastic! You can't go wrong with chickens and owls, and I LOVE the purple fabric. As his adopted mom, I do not see any imperfections; you should be very happy with how he came out. He is Super Cute! Thanks!!!
Comment: WOW---what an incredible doll!! The cloisonne art pin made the perfect face and I love, love, love the vintage clock for the body. Every detail is perfect right down to the key and lock. Thank you for sharing your talent with me and sending an outstanding art doll!!
Comment: Oh my gosh!!! I love this doll so much. You did a wonderful job on her, Vicki - I'm so honored to be the recipient of your very first art doll! Be careful because they are addictive. =) Thank you times ten, and please believe that you need to continue making art dolls. She is a treasure!!!! xo
Response: Thank you so so much! I really did love making her and I'm already putting pieces together for another! Yes, they are addictive! = )
Comment: Thank you so much for Wilbur, it's a perfect name for him. He is absolutely and perfectly adorable and so purple too! Love the little details, especially his fishy in his flipper. Thank you again! ðŸ’œ

Comment: Thank you for the super cute bulldog Christmas card! And those stickers are beautiful! I bought myself a whole set of Spectrum Noir markers for Christmas! I can't wait to use them to color those stickers! Thank you for a wonderful swap! Merry Christmas!!!
Comment: Holy cow! You really outdid yourself! I feel like I didn't send enough now! You had so many cool stamped images. I almost died of happiness when I saw the Spock stamp!!! And the carebears really brought me back to my childhood! There are just so many! Thank you so very much. Let me know if you want me to send you some more. If you like Tim Holtz, I can oblige. I sent a bunch of his, but I have more. Oh, and bless your heart for cutting some of them out for me! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Response: I Love the images you sent me, and you sent plenty! I'm so glad you like the ones I sent! Honestly, that's not even a third of the stamps I have at home, and I'm always buying more at thrift stores and flea markets. It's an addiction, I swear! The Spock stamp came from a Savers thrift store. I have a Kirk one too, but it seems like it was heat damaged in it's last home and doesn't print anything more than lumpy smudges. Let me know if you ever want more!
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome pocket letter! First of all, giant glittery skull equals...YES!! :) I really appreciated all the little extras, that wooden skull is definitely going to be put to good use!
Comment: ðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œGirl! You just blow me away! Not one but TWO fantastically beautiful ATCs! I absolutely adore both of them! The teeny leetle butterfly book is genius! Thank you for sharing your delicious artwork with me.My greedy paws are glad for the blank ATCs too.â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œ
Response: Thank you so much for your very kind compliments as well as for the rating. I have so much fun creating ATCs and I'm glad you liked them both.
Comment: THANK YOU, THANK You, Thank you for the lovely Peacock Pocket letter and all the LOVELY GOODIES! This one was stuffed full & I appreciate your generosity so much!!! ~ ðŸ’“ ðŸ’ŒðŸ˜Š Enjoy 5 hearts for an awesome swap! â¥ â™¡ ðŸ’— ðŸ’˜ ðŸ’› ~ âœ” âœ– ðŸ“¦ ðŸ“« Blessings, cc
Response: Thank you for the compliment and the rating. I'm really liking making pocket letters with one large main embellishment that spreads over the pages.
Comment: I'd give you 9 hearts for this swap if I could--one for each perfectly planned and executed pocket. Plus extras for being extra-generous and thoughtful. This is a treasure of a pocket letter. LOVE all of the gifts (those cute little frog envelopes! the perfect little die-cuts! and oh my goodness the postage!) and the way you beautifully coordinated your colors and design. I like the clock pocket very much, too, and the way you designed the circus one is really neat. Thank you for a great letter and for making me want to get back into making pocket letters. â™¥
Comment: This is one of the loveliest Pocket Letters I've received! Thank you so much for putting such thought into it and making it sea/ seahorse themed, I love them so much!. I absolutely love how you put the goodies in the little tiny envelopes. So cute, I wish I could give you 100 hearts for such a great PL!
Comment: What a happy surprise to get this pl from you! I am loving Selfridge series and also miss fisher mysteries from Australia. Loved your letter. I will check out the books you mentioned. We listen to audio books and I like the ones w the recipes. Now we are listening to books about a cookie shop owner and I just finished one about a spice shop owner. I heard about some that describes the crafts that the heroine works on- I haven't found them yet.loved the butterflies and it's funny I used a couple of the same in the one I sent! Good taste!!!! Thanks so much for time spent on this also. I can tell you were thoughtful when you put this togetherðŸ˜€I also love the swap cards you included. Happy spring!
Comment: What a wonderful pocket letter!!! very pretty fronts especially the pot of gold with the rainbow. The extras are greatly appreciated especially the charms. You gave me such a nice variety of items. Thank you very much!
Comment: WOW!!! Thank you!!! I don't know where to begin, the swap cards, the beautiful stamp, postage, charms and penny. Dad thanks you for the tea, he can't wait till it gets cold which will be in 3...2...1...our weather changes drastically daily too. Oh and the pocket letter was beautifully blooming too:) thanks again
Comment: Oh Vicki ~ it's in one piece! I truly adore and love my new mug! I too love the ones with the spoons. Believe it or not out of 700+ mugs this makes only three I have with spoons. Thank you so much and thank you so much for the coffee too! I am so glad you joined in this swap. Hope you like the one you are getting. XO Kelly

Comment: Thank you so much for the pocket letter! It was beautiful! And my husband thanks you for all the extra teas! He's taking them to work to enjoy them there! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
Comment: OMG! How to add 5 hearts? They tell me it's impossible, but you deserve more than one. What a wonderful package with enough tea for 5 Advent Calendar swaps! I can't wait to try all of the exotic teas you sent. And I LOVE the way you packaged the Advent teas! How lovely. They look as if you bought them in a quaint shop in the old city! Thank you so much for all you put into this package - love, I mean! You are a very generous soul. It's quiet evident! Happy Holidays!
Response: I'm so glad you liked the package! I hope you enjoy each tea just as much. :) I have sooo much tea ( a bit of an addiction) ! Anytime you'd like to swap, just let me know.
Response: Hi neighbor! : ) When I went to mail it, the postal clerk was teasing me that I could just drive it over the hill myself. I hope you love what I found. It was a fun challenge to shop for you.
Comment: What a lovely pocket letter. The winter theme is lovely - I love snow. That little snowman in the center just melted my heart. I really look forward to tomorrow. Will update on Christmas to let you know I loved it all. :-) By the way, I love the backs also.
Comment: Vicki, I dont even know where to begin to describe how much I loved your pocket letter. Your hand drawn pieces are so cute ( im jealous, I wish I could draw) All the goodies were wonderful, I especially appreciate the swap cards, and all the charms.Thank you so much! I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: When I saw that you had written the teas I sent you were wrapped perfect, I thought surely you jest, especially now after seeing yours!!! I had limited resources at the time. I LOVE the way you wrapped mine! So cute. They are how I envisioned wrapping some in the future. So very cool!!! Thank you so much! I'm drinking the extra Sakurambo vert tea right now and love it! The smell is so delightful, too. ~ â™¥ Cari
Comment: WOW I was really blown away with the super nice and cute pocket letter. Loved it all. That is so funny your niece saying that for Halloween trick or treat. We just went thru a corn maze and they had a spooky one to. Lots of fun.

Comment: WOW!! You really spoiled me!! There was so much in this box that my housemate came to investigate the ooohs, aaahs, and squees. It took us more than a half hour to open and look at everything! Thank you so so much! :D :D A few favs: the D stamps, hehe; dice and tattoo rub-ons!; tool stickers, leaf stickers; teacup button and charms; seahorses! stickers and charms; all the steampunk! And I've never used a color mist--the color is amazing. Plus glitter in orange! And THREE freaking rolls of washi tape! Just wow!

Response: I had so much fun putting your package together! I'm so glad you liked it and weren't off put by the little bit of evil there ; ) When I saw the glitter in orange I just knew I had to include it for you. Anytime you need a washi tape fix, just drop me a line. Ive got a slight addiction to it and you're practically a neighbor so it can be a quick ship! Happy swapping!
Comment: Oh my goodness gracious--I love it! What an incredibly clever idea, and a beautiful execution! Thank you so much! And thank you for all the extras as well; I feel spoiled! Can't wait to put some of those to good use. Purple is my second-favorite color, so I am thrilled to have some more of it to play with. And a wonderful ATC to celebrate it and books. Thank you!
Response: I'm so glad you like it! Thank you for such a wonderful rating!
Comment: Wow, that is a beautiful postcard! Thanks so much and like you, My Gracie, makes me smile. When I get home, I have to be careful or she gets over excited and nips my nose. Loved hearing about Lucy!
Comment: You made my day, night, week! Thank you so much for adorable figurines/salt shakers/magnets. I placed the cat and frog on my shelf immediately. Mr & Mrs Claus will be in on vacation till December when they are needed. Magnets went straight to my fridge. I appreciate all the time you took to find those "perfect" pieces for me. Hugs!
Comment: I love the child art card. The washi tape selection is awesome!! The little playing cards are so cute. I have been slow on getting into the washi tape. But you certainly helped me get a boost with it. Thank you so much.
Comment: Vicki, what can I say? You really went overboard on sending me things for this swap. I love it all. You are such a great swapping and I thank you. If I could give you more than one heart and a five rating, I surely would. Shirley
Comment: Oh my double Gosh!!!! What an incredible group of goodies for me! I am in awe.....really!!! Love the cozy mysteries ( I didn't have any of them), the shells, flower pin, box, the cat postcards!!! You put me to shame on this swap!!! Everything was such a blessing!!!! Really! A heart just doesn't seem enough!
Comment: Dear Vicki, If I could give you more hearts I would, thank you for such a great Scavenger Hunt, love the book, the coasters with the cats, the worry dolls (I've always want it to have some), and the bag with goodies it's just amazing...I want to shop in your Thrift Stores...the ones over here in Burbank really suck :( and we're only allowed garage sales once a month...So, I feel so blessed by receiving this package, I'll use it all. Blessings to you & Happy St. Patrick's Day <3
Comment: Thanks so much for the card. I used to watch Felix the cat when I was a kid. Thanks also for the extra washi tapes. I didn't know you could send it like that but now I do so thanks for that idea. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Vicki, I really love the s//p shakers, they are so adorable, one can have too many snow people.love the snowflake too. And yes I need Christmas cards, since I never get around to making them. Thanks for everything, great package. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Comment: Thanks so much Vicki! I LOVE the cute Polar Bears Christmas card! Your ATC is wonderful, so sparkly and very well made!! I love all the great extra papers as well! Thank you so very much! Have a very Merry Christmas!
Comment: It sounds like you had an interesting RaT this time around. I don't think I would have kept reading a book that I didn't enjoy. I hope you have read plenty of good books since then. Happy reading! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for your swap. :) I'm sorry that you didn't meet your set goals, that stinks, but if you had fun, that's what matters. Definitely you should put aside a crappy book, if you aren't feeling it. I had to as well. I have one book that was on my maybe list to read but I just couldn't get into it. I read about 12% and then moved on to something else. I dunno if I'll ever finish it, it just didn't interest me. Hope you had fun and you'll join in when I host it again!
Comment: I love loved the postcard you chose to send to me! It really made me smile. The quote had me scratching my head though! I would love to read the before/after sentences to get a better idea of what was going on =D
Comment: wow 3 books!! yay! I am so excited that you added the one by gail tsukiyama, she is one of my absolute favorite authors and I have ready almost everything by her :) I have not read the night of many dreams I am excited to jump into this one.. Not sure about the others, but i am open to new things so I will see what those are about as well, LOL thank you so much thank you so much
Comment: Oh my stars, what an incredible stash of goodies! Wish I could give you more stars!! This was just incredible and I love it all, especially all those Washi tapes!! The note card you used is simply fabulous so it's going into my favorite art journal. You've made me one very happy camper!
Comment: The care package I received was like something I would get from a good friend.I absolutly love everything in this BIG BOX of fun! I love all the beautiful japanese felt packs,all the wonderful; felt kits,the needle point kits & the crazy fun "adult coloring kits"AND the teas n coco and for reading my ridiculously long profile to know I love marshmellows and socks as I am wearing them now:-) its like you raided a Oiuwajamya and I love it,Thank you wonderful swap partner Vicki <3 <3
Response: I'm SO glad you like it all! I had a lot of fun putting it all together. I wasn't sure how you'd feel about loose leaf tea, but I'm glad I included it! Have fun coloring! = )
Comment: WOW!! This is a great ATC. I love the owl on the books. Thanks so much for all the ATC papers. They will come in handy. This was a hard swap for me, too, but it would appear that we both achieved it. Have a great day.
Comment: What a great quote! And I love the postcard! It could possibly be the longest postcard I've ever seen! And I've been to that beach several times. Back in the late 1960s, early 1970s, we lived on the other side of the peninsula from this beach. My maiden name was Baker, so of course we had to check out Baker Beach! Thanks for sending it my way!
Comment: Thank you so much Vicki. I watched Jamanji on ABC Family the other day. One of my favorite Robin Williams movies. Will add the DVD to my collection. I was so excited to get that. Love the journals. Cute snowmen candles and peacock notepad. Interesting card game. You really deserve more than 1 heart. Wasn't expecting so much. You took the time to wrap each item too. It was like Christmas came early.
Comment: Hi Vicki! Thanks so much for your swap! I am about to boil water for the "Cookie" Tea right now!! :) SO EXCITED. I think I will also make a small jug of iced tea as well with the Melon one. :) Loved your list!
Comment: Holy Cow, Thank You!!! I was stumped at first as to what swap it was cuz the box looked so big & I love how you wrapped it in the clippings & tape btw. What a treat, to have so much new reading material while I recover, we have very similar reading tastes, I love Karen White but I haven't read the one you sent & Im excited to be introduced to Jill McCorkle, also The Winter Sea has been on my" to read" list. The teas look wonderful! Thank you for such a thoughtful pkg & such great selections!!! I have a feeling I have books you would like, maybe I can send a couple your way I think you might like if you wouldn't mind some more reading material? There is a couple in my bookcase I think you would enjoy since we seem to love the same genres. If you love Karen White I have a great author similar to her. Oh and I did read & loved The Art of Racing in the Rain! So it worked out that you sent these instead, cant wait to read them! :)
Comment: What wonderful happy mail I received from you today :-) :-) Four different teas and they are all new to me and all sound great! Love the Will Rogers dog quote too--I certainly hope my dogs will be meeting me in heaven :-) <3<3<3
Comment: Wow! I love the atcs you created for me. I am collecting an entire village of houses and these make wonderful additions. Also thank you for the extra backgrounds and the lovely compliment, although your atcs are just as beautiful.
Response: Thank you so much for both the compliment and the rating! I'm glad you like them. = )
Comment: WOW!! AMAZING! You outdid yourself. All of these items are me. I love them all. That Victorian Scrap Gallery Book is precious. The brooches are to die for. So beautiful. Everything is perfect for me. You put some time and work and thought into these packages and you need lots and lots of red hearts, but I can only give one. So, so, so happy with all these items. I am totally and completely in love with both packages! Fantastic partner. Thank you, Vicki "tigerlily327"
Response: I'm so glad you like what I sent! I love when my partners have great detail filled profiles like yours to help me put together a swap. Thank you so much for the rating!
Comment: I got my like new book today. I do appreciate you hosting book swaps. I look forward to more trades. I am reading book 1 right now and should be done soon so getting book 2 from you was a real boost. I hope I like this series enough to keep going after book 2.
Response: I'm glad you like the book! I think I have the next in the series on my bookshelf too.
Comment: I really like the silver/grey ATCs you sent. It's fascinating to see all the different techniques swappers use. I lived them both equally. I tried to pick a favorite but the both so good! I also appreciate the bird house note card they came in. I wish I had pretty ones like these. Thanks again.
Comment: I love my super mega tea swap package! Your assortiment of tea is so lovely, and generous. I am just now venturing into the world of loose-leaf tea, so I am super excited to try the varieties you sent. They look so delicious! Thank you! xo
Comment: I want to let you know that this was the most lovely and generous package I've ever received. It's not just the size of the package but the variety and quality of the items. You truly shared your stash. You are amazing and I want to let you know that I appreciated the thought you put into the swap.
Comment: Love your photos! Your soon-to-be new addition looks like she needs you - I know you can't wait! And Buster is cute! I especially love the one where he's looking out of the car window! Thanks for sharing!
Comment: 27 hearts for such an awesome swap! Were we best friends in another life or something? My own family doesn't do as well in knowing what gifts would make me smile! I do hope I get a chance to send to you eventually in one of these swaps. Thank you so much!
Response: YAY! I'm so glad both packages made it and that you liked it all! I LOVE thrift store swaps! Thank you so much for the rating!
Comment: Ha-Ha-Happy New Year! Thanks so much for the fabulous Wise Men card! Hope your Christmas was fantastic! Sorry for the late rating...been ill to ring in the New Year most likely as a result of the holiday stress. Hope you have a wonderful, healthy and happy 2014!
Comment: Thank you so much for the very fun chimney sweep bicycle card, recipe and penpal letter! The handmade gifts you made for your family sound so creative and I bet this year's thrift/estate sale scavenger hunt for gifts was lots of fun.
Comment: Thanks for the card & letter. Your skills are right up my alley. That barbie house sounds AWESOME! And I love shopping 2nd hand for gifts that still have a lot of life left in them. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!!
Comment: Wow! EVERYTHING was awesome! The moose, the BEAUTIFUL yarn and thread!! Thanks so much, Talyn Even the card was so cute. Jan. 13 UPDATE!! The moose cross stitch patterns came today! WOW! Thank You! They are Incredible!
Comment: Thanks for the snowman card and the cookie recipe. I actually have all the ingredients in the house. And as it's been hovering around zero for the last couple days, it's perfect cookie baking weather. These sound great.
Comment: We haven't done a tree in years either (turns into work, lol), but I've decided to do a small one this year and already have the topper on...just need to get the right ornaments out and I'm set -Happy Decorating! :D
Comment: Thank you! Joyous Noel to you and your family and friends this Christmas season! The big push is just around the corner and I'm already feeling bogged down with all the things that need accomplishing! Merry Christmas!
Comment: OMG! Bestill my glitter lovin' heart! Wow! Please be my partner forever! This package was AMAZING! I've wanted glitter tape for ages! And perfect pearls mist too. I adore the charms and am trying to figure out how I use the multi holed dragon flies in a pretty summer necklace and bracelet! I love the challenge of unusual pieces. The glitter glue looks like fun and the lace is a shabby chic gal's dream! My kids are already begging me for the candy! Thanks for remembering how much they liked it! Another over-the-top, you-are-so-generous package! I'd love to know where you got the charms, they are awesome! Thank you
Comment: Wow, you really made my day, and the day of five little girls here. I am writing this with the lovely cd music in the background, and the girls reading Shel Silverstein poems to each other, and bursting out laughing. The littlest one is cuddling the little lamb...the colored pencils are perfect too! What a happy and generous package you sent, Thank you so much!! â™¥
Comment: Absolutely amazing package! My kids were thrilled! They all loved everything you sent an you certainly went overboard! Wow! You easily spent the minimum on each kid and then some plus the shipping was outrageous! You certainly didn't need to be so generous but you certainly made my boys very happy! Jameson would like me to trade with you for more gum and cola candy! He loves them. Did you know the cola ones are even fizzy? Amazing. Thank you soooo much. You rock! ETA: When I rated you, the book packages hasn't gotten here yet. You are amazing! The amount you spent on postage alone was 10x the swap minimum! They kids are extra thrilled! With 3 days between getting the packages, it was a whole additional bonus. Yeah!
Response: I'm so glad they liked it all! I was having so much fun putting it together and challenging myself to find things I thought they'd like that I didn't want to stop! I can find candy in my area from Slavic countries, India, Korea, China, Japan, and some Middle Eastern countries. Anytime you'd like to trade in, just let me know.

Comment: I got 1 of 2 today! It is all great. The buttons will be put to good use. I love the papers you sent. And the magazine was really neat. You are awesome! Would love to give more than just 1 heart!!! It was awesome!!!
8/15-received the other package a couple of days ago! Thank you very much!!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it all! Thanks for the rating.
Comment: This is one of those swaps where I truly wish I could give more than one heart! I LOVE the assortment of baking, Amish, & tea cookbooks! I am over the moon thrilled with this package, and look forward to trying many new recipes. HUGE THANKS!!! :)
Response: I'm so glad you like the books! I collect cookbooks and can't go to a thrift store without looking for some. When I saw your list of likes I knew exactly what I wanted to find - and I did!
Comment: Wow, where to start? That was one heck of a package!! You obviously read my profile! Love the stamps, stickers, tapes, everything!! Thanks so much and nicely packages too. Where on earth did you get such a big flower?? Ha ha!
Response: Haha! The huge flowers and the brads they were attached to came in a ginormous brand new gift set of scrapbooking supplies that I stumbled onto at a thrift store. I'm so glad you liked it all!
Comment: Thanks for the doggie ATC! Not sure if anyone else mentioned the condition of their envelope... my envelope was falling apart when I got it out of my mailbox and the notecard was split in half at the fold. I think the crown got caught in their machine since it was detached from the card. I hope nothing fell out of the envelope! Some rough handling by USPS I'd say.
Response: WOW! I'm so sorry! I've never had a problem with the post office (that I know of) mangling an envie on me. There were some extra papers to cushion the front of the card, and then the ATC itself inside the card. Again, I'm so sorry it arrived in such bad shape.
Comment: Thank you for organizing this fun swap - I was so pleased when I got the fuchsia bubble mailer in the mailbox! The book is adorable, and I really loved the unexpected addition of the stack of swap cards, those will definitely come in handy.Will be happy to swap with you again anytime! :)
Comment: The pretty gold box will remind me that there are surprises to liven up dark days. I opened one (rationalizing it was proper to at least know what was in a single package) and found the drink mixes - inspired! 1/2/14: opened the last of these. When you sent the swap you had no idea what the year would hold, but it held a lot! See my pm, and thanks.
Comment: Package 1 arrived today! Thanks for the notecards,and stencils! Right up my alley! I will let you know when package 2 arrives! Whohoo!
Vickie package 2 arrived today! What a wonderful surprise to get a hymn book,and the chorus books. Whats amazing about this,my mom was a soloist most of her life,and I have a few of the Singspriration books! Thank you SO much!
Response: WOW! That got there super fast. I only mailed them out on Saturday at about 12:30!
Comment: Thanks so much. There is so much I don't know where to start...lol...wish I could give you more hearts ...
Response: Haha! I had soo much fun putting this package together! There are a few which might be a bit odd at first ( chocolate mochi and the matcha Pocky for instance - which are strangely enough my favorites!) but hopefully you'll enjoy them all.
Comment: WOW, where do I begin?! This is by fair the best package I have received on Swap-Bot. You are incredibly thoughtful and generous and I feel really fortunate to have had you as my swap partner. I LOVE everything you found for me.
Did you sow the cute little bag that you put the owl necklace in? I love it and it even fits my iPod, so Ill be carrying that around with me everywhere now. The box you packaged the items in, the Fabric, the necklace, stamps, postcards, the gorgeous clutch, the Venice city guide and the adorable canvas...Seriously thank you for really taking my profile into consideration. You're the best!! <3 <3!
Response: YAY! I'm so glad you liked it all! I did make the little pouch for the necklace from some felt I had left over from another project. Great that you can keep using that too! =) It was so much fun putting your package together. We have some great thrift stores here in San Jse and I'm a bit of an addict with them. Even the clutch I used for my wedding and the rhinestone brooches in my bouquet came from thrift stores. If you 're ever looking for something in particular and aren't having any luck, let me know. Seriously I find all kinds of things here!
Comment: Not only did I have a happy mailbox once...but 2 times. My packages were a perfect match for me and I will be reading and learning for quite a while. What a delight. Thanks so much. Glad I joined.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it all! Thank you for the rating.

Comment: Hi Vickie, Thanks for the great ATC!! I love it. I love the Rubber stamp you used. What is it, and the company? I would like to have it. Again, thanks for the wonderful card, and the exytra papers. Nancy (grannystamper)
Response: Thank you so much for such kind words and for your rating! I'll PM you about the stamp.
Comment: I received your cards today. Thank you!. The swap wasn't on it, but I was pretty sure it was this one and I was right! I received your other package today. Thank you very very much!! I've only skimmed through the book, but can't wait to look through it during a nice hot bath. Thank you again for being so thoughtful.
Response: Ack! I forgot to mark the envie of postcards with the swap name and the fact that it's one of two packages going to you for this swap. I'm so sorry! They mailed out on the same day, so hopefully part two gets there soon.
Comment: Vicki- You have NO idea what this BOX meant to me!! Could not have come at a better time in my Life!!
What a box full of pure awesomeness!!
Everything was perfect and you are a PERFECT swapper!!
Comment: I got your card and it was super. Thank you for personalizing it with a vintage lady. I still always worry if my atcs are good enough and feed back is always what i do it for... So way to go girl! You did great! Thank you for the extra papers too.
Comment: OMG!! This is so adorable. I love the fact that you found something in my profile and used that as your subject for the aTc card.... Thank you so much for the extras to....extra hearts to you....
Response: I'm so glad you like it! It was fun figuring out what to send, then going through my tea bags for tags that would work well. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: WOW WOW WOW!! This has got to be the most awesomest Lucky Parcel swap I have EVER gotten. I love everything!! The deer notecards are adorable! The figurines are precious, and wouldn't you know it my mom and I love Maroljien Bastien so I love the calendar you found. The kitty notepad is so cute! Can't believe u found all this stuff in a thrift store. Thank you sooo much!!
Response: Yay! It got there! Did both packages arrive? There should be one item that is a it oddly shaped arriving on its own. I'm really lucky to have a couple of great thrift stores near me. I'm soooo glad you like it all!
Comment: I thought I already left feedback...? Anyway, thank you (again) so much for all the lovely goodies you sent us. The FRIENDS was a bit tricky but I love everything that you chose to send. I can't wait for the next swap! Hugs xo
Comment: Vicki, thank you SO much for the amazing package! I love each and every one of the books you sent, and I appreciate your note as well. It's wonderful when swaps reflect both the sender's taste and the recipient's, and this one did that in spades. Thanks again!
Comment: OH! I thought I'd rated this LONG ago...I'm so sorry. I loved your package - so thoughtful and generous. I'm very excited to get the sewing machine out again - with all the new inspiration. Thank you, thank you.
Comment: Great package from my birthday twin!! (Sending you a more detailed note via message) ADD'L COMMENT: 9/20: Oh,oh,oh, got your extra today, love that lucky Irish black cat, think I will have to sing it "Danny Boy" tonight ^@@^
Comment: Totally love it! Thank-you so much. I love the extra papers. Do you cut your own or order them online? I have found a couple of good websites, but am always on the lookout for more.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I cut my own since there's a scrapbooking shop near where I live that has a fantabulous selection of papers. I just cut what I need and have the rest of the page of other projects. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I wish I could give you a thousand hearts. This was such an awesome package. (and it came on a day I really needed it) EVERYTHING IS SO SPECIAL. I just could not believe all you sent. I have searched for the Mrs. Grossman's Stuck on Pets Basset. I want to do a shadow box type thing. Could not believe my eyes when I saw it. And the vintage paterins.. WOW Snoopy-Woodstock this was just so amazing to receive. I can't thank you enough... The cards are so cute. I love the little ceramic dog.... It will go on the shelf in my dog room. Again, big thanks and swapbot Hugs. Many Hearts.
Response: I've actually had the sticker for a little bit with you in mind! I'm really glad you like the package and I hope it helps keep you smiling. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I love the owl bookmark! Thank you for the Lemon Cheesecake Pie recipe.
Response: You're welcome! I LOVE that recipe, and I thought it would make a good cook book bookmark. The owl one is a new favorite of mine to make. Round is different and I like different! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh dear thank you for the nicest package! Ha it's somehow dumb how excited I got for getting ACTUAL sharpies. x) And very generous of you to send the other items also, now I can make my kitchen smelly with kool-aid yarn dyeing and write a letter to my poodle loving/owning friend. The cards are also great, the other has actually one of my favorite quotes from winnie the pooh and the bondage card... "take it and like it" rofl it's awesome. :D
Response: Haha! It was so hard to put together your package because I had so many options to send to you! I actually stopped and shopped some more on the way to the post office. I'm really glad you like it all! Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Squeal! How did you know I love otters?! Love it!!!
Response: Haha! Yay! You had otters listed on your profile so I was looking for something otter-y in addition to something dog-ish. Surprisingly I found the otter but no dogs. I'm soo glad it got there in one piece.Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh wow, what a great package! Although, admittedly I was *slightly* confused when the postie handed me a hand mixer box! LOL I love everything you sent - and you made my 'recovering from an operation' hubby's day with the candy, he really enjoyed it (I only gave it to him to try because I thought he wouldn't like it...and so that backfired on me!). Oh, and the cupcake stamp is too cute for words! :o) Thanks so much!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like it all! Hehe! I should have warned you that I recycle boxes like crazy. You never know when you'll get a cereal box in the mail. : D I'm stocking up on those m&m's whenever I see them! My sis said I have mail at her place from the UK that I forgot to take last weekend -most likely the package you sent - so I'll be picking that up on Sunday.
Comment: I love the handmade ornaments. The beach one broke but I'll just transfer the goodies to a new ball. The painted one is awesome also. I have tried this style with no luck. How did you make it and keep the colors from turning to mud?. I will also use the thrift store find. Thank You!!!
Response: damn! I thought I had bubble wrapped it well enough.I'm so sorry! I'm glad that you can transfer it though, and glad you like the vintage one too. For the swirled one I drip a few drops of one color, tilt it a bit, drip another color, tilt again, drip a third color, then very slowly tilt it until the colors cover the inside. Then I simply put it upside down over the tray it came in so the excess can drip out and it dries. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: First of all, I love the bag! I just may use it as my everyday purse. And the book.......awesome! I can't wait to read it. And the best part is the story took place in my neck of the woods!! Thank you very much, Vicki!
Response: I'm really glad you like them both. The story looked interesting and I was tempted to read it myself. What a neat coincidence that it happened in your area! Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Wow - that glass structure is amazing! I love the minion's superhero costume and I feel lame for not being able to identify it. I particularly love the leg holes for...? Thanks for sharing your pics!
Response: Haha! Thanks! It's just a generic red, white, and blue superhero costume. it looked a little silly with no feet, so I geve him black shoes but they look like leg holes : D Thanks for the rating!
Comment: thank you so much for the berry goodness! :) i love it all! the fabric is divine, the drink mix is wonderful (can't wait to try it!), and the smooshed fruit is so funny! thanks again!
Response: I don't sew and I still have a favorite fabric store. Beverleys has sooo much it was actually hard to decide which fabric to send. Thats why LBF had to choose! I'm glad you like it. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Wow - what a fantastic box of goodies that matched my profile exactly. The lettersets are amazing ... thank you, thank you, thank you! Not to mention all that candy!!! Everything was just perfect thank you so much! Hope to swap with you again! Zoe x
Response: Yay! I'm really glad you like it all! There was so much in your profile that made it easy to pick things to send. : )
Comment: If I could give you a million hearts I would! I loved this whole parcel, EVERYTHING! Supercute stuff, the lanterns, lettersets, tape, fabric, panda things, chocolate, yum yum yum. Thank you so, so much. :o))))))
Response: I'm soooo glad you liked it all! I tried to get a good mix of things from your profile, and most of it was really easy to find all in one store!
Comment: Vavavavoom!!!!!Vicki, I LOVE the wonderful BUNCH O' BOOKS that you sent me!
Absolutely perfect combo and I love the vintage ones!
My son helped me open the package (great job by the way) and pulled them out and laughed and laughed and wouldn't let me get my grubby mitts on them. He then (quite gravely) said, "mom, you have GOT to get a grip on yourself, you get WAY to excited over dead people books.
Ha! He is just a little snot (a 35 year old booger).
He gets great satisfaction in pointing to the people while I'm trying to read a recipe and casually informing me that everyone pictured is dead dead dead. I usually casually inform him that perhaps it was the exact recipe that I am preparing THIS VERY SECOND that was their downfall. I always offer him seconds. LOL
But, enough about me, YOU missy, are the bomb diggity> Thank you so very, very much, the package was excellent!
Response: Haha! I LOVE old cookbooks! I have one from the 50's thats all sandwiches, and some of them sound just too funky to believe anyone ever ate them! I'm glad you liked what I picked.
Comment: Thanks for sending by email as well, although I preferred the answers on paper!! If you'd like any "tips" for your forthcoming visit to London, please PM and ask me - I lived there for 40 years!!
Response: Yay! I wasn't sure about the letter set at first, but I remember things like that from when I was a kid, so it's definitely vintage (Gawd I feel old sometimes!) making it fit some of what you like. I'm really glad you like it.
Comment: I love Vegetarian Times magazine-their recipes look so good. Thankyou!!! Dont you hate it when you forget to put a stamp on an envelope!
Response: I'm so glad you liked the recipes! I'd be kicking myself if I had forgotten... Instead i had to kick the mailroom trainee at work for not processing (putting on the postage and adding it to my monthly tally) correctly. Thank you for being so understanding about it!
Comment: Thanks so much for the extra recipe! I love your special notes and comments about your recipes. I am looking forward to making them soon, especially the bread. Mmmm....! :)
Response: I've been making the bread like crazy these days! I've tweaked it a bit and made it with more wheat flour and more sugar. Since its made with beer LBF won't eat it, and I have to enjoy it all myself. Hehehe!
Comment: Thanks for the great Christmas card, and the (stuck on) pomeranian ~~ it'll go in my collection of little pom things that I've collected through the years of owning poms. Hope you have a great holiday season!
Comment: thank you so much for everything! i haven't eaten or tried everything yet, but i am so thrilled at how cute everything is! cannot wait to try the 'peanut butter mountain, so darn cute! and thank you for the lovely note that came with the package. <3 <3 You're too awesome.
Response: Thank you for the rating! I'm glad it made it to you without melting in the Florida heat. : ) Enjoy !
Comment: I don't even know if I can begin to thank you enough for the INCREDIBLE package you sent me!!! I wish I could leave you 100 hearts!! I absolutely love everything!! it was so much fun to go through the package!! I am so excited to learn more about, and experiment with Bento Meals!!! The kids are excited too!! Thank you AGAIN for such a *SPECIAL* package!! :o)
Response: I had so much fun putting together your package! Thank you for the lovely comment and the wonderful rating. If you ever want to set up a private swap for more Asian items (or anything) just let me know!
Comment: Millions and millions of hearts to you! The package was great. Mia loved her Bento box and braden his coloring book, he also loved the little animals and the monkey. We are gonna try the snacks tomorrow, we got home to late tonight!! Thank you so so so much! It was wonderful, you've got one coming! Hope you like it just as much!
Response: I was just reading over my profile comments and I forgot to tell you (in case you didn't know) the little animals are actually erasers! Thank you so much again for my package! I'm in awe of the vintage postcards and the books and just everything! : ))
Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCH! i love all the goodies! the fabrics are just perfect! i especially love the bugs... they will make a great addition to my blanket! the Eiffel Tower postcard is so pretty! and my husband really LOVES the soup mugs! he really was quite excited about it! :) thanks for making both our days! :) we really appreciate your generosity!
Response: I'm so glad you (both!) liked it all. I tried to find a buggy print that wasn't too 'very hungry catepillar' and that was the only one that wasn't really cartoony. Luckily its also a pretty mix of colors, so I snatched it up! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks Vicki - I think I've been to the Thai place about 2 years ago when I was attending a conference in SJ. I am starting an altered puzzle all about food so I will definitely use some of the menus for that. And some for ATC's and inchies. Thanks so much. Take care. SMM
Response: I pass the Thai place every day on my way home from work although I haven't been able to talk LBF into eating there with me yet. I'm working on him though ; ) Thanks for thr rating. I'm glad you like and can use them!
Comment: Oh wow! You spoiled me! I absolutely adore everything! I can't wait to try some of these recipes, grow a gnome, and write some notes and recipes! I put the apron on immediately! A zillion hearts for you!
Response: Yay! I'm really glad you like everything! i tried to fit a set of vintage calf salt and pepper shakers in (for the little things on your profile and tying into the cooking) but they wouldn't fit : (
Comment: I wish that I could give you more than one heart! You apparently put a lot of time and effort into the swap- and I love everything in it! Thanks so much! I was looking for one of those eye masks the other day...and I wear those super soft socks everyday in the winter! I have an electric tart burner but this one seems safer... And everything else is wonderful too! Thank you a million times five!
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! I thought the owl burner might fit in with the nature / woodsy theme you like. And I remember what winters are like in western PA, so cozy socks were a must. Enjoy! : )
Comment: I LOVE my ornaments! The snowman is my favorite - so seriously wicked & well done. I've not seen a snow man decorated in brown - you did such a wicked job. How did you make him? I'd love a pm :) Many hugs! Amanda
Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you like them. I sent you a PM with instructions : )
Comment: Vicki's bookmarks are great. I received One with a little white dog on it and the message Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot little puppies. The other three had an Oriental theme, One hada geisha girl on it and the other two had flowersabd sparkles. The one with the girl on it has black tassel and a metal embellishment saying beautiful.
Thanks Vicki for the great bookmarks.
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! I tried to combine some of your likes as well as challenge myself to make something different. I'm making another geisha bookmark for myself ! Hehe!
Comment: You must be my fairy god mother!! I'm speechless and giddy as heck! How did you know I needed a book light??? Can't say enough and I'm DYING to get started on them all...(now I can't wait for winter to come so I can hibernate!)
Response: I'm so so so glad you like your package! i was worried you'd have already read all the books I sent and would be disappointed. And I knew about the booklight cause I'm constantly losing mine ;)
Comment: Oh god, its GORGEOUS! You shouldnt have to send me another mail, the little box was just fine! I was speechless with it, then i noticed the letter was ALSO from you. Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!
Response: I'm so glad you like it all! : ) I couldn't help myself !
Comment: Wow! What a fun package! I especially loved the frogs, whistle and Winnie-the-Pooh. This swap brings me back to my childhood when we used to get a couple of pennies or a nickel when we went grocery shopping with my mom. Back then, the gum and toys were mixed together, so you didn't know what you might get. Guess I'm sounding old! THANKS!
Response: This was a really fun swap! Then again I never have grown up enough to stop digging for change when I pass by a machine with really neat items. And believe me, you aren't that old... I remember them too!
Comment: Let's create a new rating category called "Beyond Hearts" of which you'll be the first recipient. Let's see; I've already had a lollipop and made the delish tea. Am still poring over the rest, basking in being on the spoilee end. Thanks so much, artsy girl.
Response: Thank you so much! This was fun to put together and I'm really glad you like it. Try leaving a tea bag in a quart of water in the fridge for a day. It really does make great spicy iced tea!
Comment: WOW, is all i have to say. Everything was SO wonderful and I will use it all. You were so thoughtful and I loved all the packaging and tags.
I really wish I could give 25 hearts. And my dog is already eating lobster!
Response: I'm so glad you (and your dog) like it all! It was such a fun package to put together. : )
Comment: Holy crap!! This was an absolutely fabulous package! I can't believe how much you did for it. I love everything, but I think my favorite is the little devil doll. If I could, I would rate you ten times! 5heart x 10!!! Thank you SO SO SO much!
Response: I am SO SO SO glad you like it all! This was the biggest challenge for me to complete because I just couldn't get everything I wanted to do for it to come together. In the end I wound up scrapping putting together a brochure with pictures, having LBF draw out a resort map, and printing up lift tickets for skiing. I think my favorite part was the menu. Yeah, I'll be in the gluttons part of Hell. ; ) hehe!
Comment: um.. i was going to give you a heart but it wont let me.. but i LOVE all the beads. and the acrylic ones are cute ;P well they all are. the green ones ar emy fave.. thanks SO much!!!!you have great taste!
Response: Thank you so much for the compliment! I'm really glad you like them all! I used some of the green and black ones myself to make a necklace and bracelet set that my manager swooped in and bought from me!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great envelope full of stuff!! I love it all!! Especially the kawaii pencil and notes! I'm going to save them to write very important (and cute) notes with!! And the seed packets are perfect! I'll be planting lavender and columbine in my garden this weekend!
Comment: It says to grant a (small) wish but you granted me a very big wish! I had such a rough day today and your package made me so happy. You're so generous to offer to re-buy things because it wasn't on my wish list but I LOVE everything you sent me! I may contact you for a private swap because I can't get anything kawaii locally. Let me know if that's alright!
Response: Thats absolutley alright! I'd love to do a private swap.There are a couple of stores that sell kawaii items here in San Jose so I can always find some things. :)
Comment: I love all 3 ornaments - thank you! The felt penguin (with such a cute little fish in his hands! lol) and the pink and white snowlady (with a flower on her hat) are delightful. You have also done an excellent job on the vintage 1950s style glittery paper star ornament - it really looks like it has been around for 50 years - very realistic! (Glad to hear you are feeling better too. Hugs, Terry)
Comment: Thanks for your list... Gnocchi with basil pesto & Parmesan chesse sounds fabulous! I'll definately be cooking that for dinner soon.. =) I'm giving hearts to everyone just for being awesome and sharing their lists!
Comment: That is the most adorable stuffie. I was totally surprised. I adore cupcakes. A cupcake stuffie with a face on it is too cute. I was thrilled!!! You did an awesome job. Thanks also for the adorable cupcake ribbon. I wish I could leave you a dozen hearts. Thank you sooooo much!!!
Comment: Thanks for the extra-special package! The tea smells wonderful and the penguin stickers and chocolate bar were an unexpected treat on a stressful day. I LOVE dark chocolate and this is a particularly good bar! Thanks for reading my profile and sending me something that made my day.
Comment: Thank you so much for this incredible package, Vicki! The only thing I know is the Twix bar, which is for sal here too. But everything else is completely new to me and I am excited to try everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :))
Response: I'm so glad that you like the package! I tried to get a mix of different candies and not just chocolate treats. Enjoy!
Comment: I LOVE this swap - and what fun packages!! Ive always open everything at once in the past swaps - but this month I decided to wait until the actual days - I opened Pig Day already -- too funny. I'll have fun with the pig flashlight. And thanks for being so thoughtful and sending batteries! Great swap!
Comment: I love everything you sent! You did such a great job!!!! I am so excited. I can't wait to try the coffee. I absolutely love the book mark, and bracelet. I love all of it! thanks again...you rock!!!!!!
Comment: Dogs are the best companions and very loyal. Mine helped me through my divorce and ever other up and down I've had. I have a younger brother who is a health nut and I'm, well, his polar opposite, but I'll tell you what he tells me about weight. The struggle is 90% mental and when you are ready you will consciously make the decision to do it and you will make the changes in your life that you need to in order to make it happen. In the mean time enjoy life and enjoy yourself.
All the best,
Response: I think my weight loss struggle is 90% chocolate. ;)
Comment: What a thoughtful package!!! I love the cuddly socks and the yummy smelling candle and the mug. The teas look scrumptious!! and my feet can really use some attention. I really appreciate all the time and care you put into this swap! <3 <3 <3
Comment: Cute Stickers!! Where did you find bears?? THANKS!!
Response: Haha! 'm so glad you liked them! There's a small convenience / liquor store by my house that has a basket of vending machine stickers by the register. I bought the 'i'm a mess' one for myself a wjhile ago, so I went back to see if they had any more, and they did!
