Comment: It was nice to "see" you & your new granddaughter! It's awful about that cyclone hitting your area, but it's a blessing that you are safe. Mission Beach looks really beautiful and I'd like to be there now where it's sunny & warm. We had snow today and now it's 34 degrees F, and dropping.
Comment: Thank you! The PC is beautiful (I'm sorry to hear about the cyclone and I am really impressed by the stranghts of the whole community) and your pic with your granddaughter is lovely! How sweet! Thanks!
Comment: Your beautiful tag came this morning and I can see you have put a lot of effort into making it, in one of my favourite colours. It has given me something cheery to brighten up these days of atrocious weather we are experiencing all over the country, Hope you have a merry Christmas
Comment: Hi, I am so very sorry that this was not rated earlier. I was going through my received swaps to make sure I did not miss anyone and there was your package! Please forgive me for such a late rating (family distress happened unfortunately and caused a big gap in sending and acknowledging swaps received). Thank you so very much for the lovely Christmas cards. I am using them right now.
Comment: thankyouso much for the interesting bits and cards to make a birthday card or maybe 2 as a matter of interest we live in Tiaro . 60klms north of Gympie so it's good to say Hito a neighbour ..lol.. take care
Comment: Suuuuupersweet Christmastags arrived today, thank you! And yes, it is cold here at Christmas and though I live in the southern part of Sweden we actually have snow outside now, yippi! Up north thereÂ´s like metres of snow and constant chaos during the wintermonths and here it tends to rain off pretty quickly so the kids are happy as long as it lasts ;) BTW, youÂ´re my partner in the paperheartswap too and I accidently rated this swap on that one first so if you get a message about a rating you donÂ´t see then you know it was my mistake ;)
Comment: Hi Margaret,
Thanks for the lovely snowflakes. I like them very much. How did you stiffen them? Because they still feel soft and mine or more rock-hard. Christmas in the Netherlands is mostly rainy, windy, cold and dark days.
Sometimes we have frosty days around Christmas, but mostly that doesn't happen untill January of February.
Response: Thanks for the heart. I am glad you like them. I used white craft glue & mix it with water & brush it on. Merry Christmas & hope its a good day for you.
Comment: It rained so hard yesterday that no one checked the mail, but this morning I found two of the loveliest granny squares I have seen waiting for me. Thank you for them and for the two coins. Is that a platypus on the 5 cent (?) coin? I can't wait to show the coins to my son when he gets home from school.
Response: So glad you liked them.It is a platypus, they,re cute little things.Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Marg, Thanks for the lovely cards. The green one with trees is my fave. Its gorgeous...I dont think ive ever had a nicer card. Beautiful! Its very cold here in Tassie today but wouldnt you know it yesterday was gorgeously sunny. We seem to have all 4 seasons in a matter of days here.
Response: Hi Thank you for the heart, I am so pleased you liked them. It is hot here already, & plently of rain.We will get to Tassie one day.Hugs
Comment: Thank you for the coins and sticker sheet!
It's funny, you wrote how many stickers are on the sheet on the back of it in metallic pen- I do the exact same thing with a silver sharpie on mine lol
Comment: Thank you very much! The handmade one is lovely and the storebought from Australia, too. Here in Italy is very hot right now, and I don't really like it...but that's the mediterranean weather! :)
Comment: Great job with a challenging swap - these will be my enclosures for swaps and wish list packages as long as I can make them last! The notes on the templates are also very thoughtful. Hearts for the good job and thanks for the Flower Fairy extra!
