Comment: BWAHAHAHA!!! You were right: those swap cards can only be used for T.I.T.S. swaps exclusive! :D The poem is so wonderful... hihihi... I had even mor fun to think of the post clerk that cleans the "shredding machine"... Thank you so much! I look forward to use those cards - they are so... special... gnihihihi....
Response: ROFL I am so glad that you liked them. I was laughing so hard as I was making them. The fact that the first envelope was shredded in the process makes me just giggle thinking about what the post office workers thought when they picked the cards up. I can't wait to hear how some T.I.T.S. members react to them lol. Oh! By the way - I saved the file so if you want me to send it to you I can or I can always make more!
Comment: Christine, thanks so much for your amazing communication on the update of the box and for all the fabulous goodies. You so spoiled me, even though half of them went to my minis, my son immediately got ahold of the whoopie cushion and my daughter ran off with the Disney plushies, Everything else was amazing and I will put to great use. Made me smile on this crazy Monday.
Response: YAY! I am so glad that you liked it! I wasn't intending on the kiddos grabbing stuff, but glad it worked out that way. It was fun getting to put this box together for you :)
Comment: I can't believe this only took two weeks! Especially given most of my mail has been delayed lately, but your swap made me really happy, it was a really cheery note and it made me feel so jealous of the place where you work! It almost made me hate my job LOL. And thanks for the teas, french vanilla chai is one of my all-time favorites too! And the alphabet stickers are really cool too, loved the note and the entire swap, thank you so much!! <3
Response: Oh wow! So glad it got to you quickly! I know that mail to Chile can sometimes take much longer! Thanks for such sweet comments about the note. It was fun to write to you and put everything together. Glad you liked it all!
Comment: I got another beautiful mini-PL from you yesterday. It is so, SO nice! Thank you very much!!! I love the "traditional" Christmas colors red and green. And the nostalgic look of your PL! It is always a pleasure to swap with you! :)
Response: I am so glad that you liked it! I have so much fun making the mini pocket letters! I am always happy when I get to send to someone who appreciates the work that goes into making them.
Comment: Thank you so much for the resend. I got it at work yesterday. My daughter very upset when I told her those were Christmas gifts and they were going into her stocking until Christmas and she could not open them right away.
Response: YAY! I am so glad! Gotta love this crazy post office. The good thing is there's only a few more days until Christmas, so she'll get to open them soon enough!
Comment: Your card arrived yesterday. It is SO cute! The dolphin. The nice greeting. And the colorful lettering. Fantastic! :D Thanks for the tip with this website. If I feel in the mood to color something, I will definitely look there! XD
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it! It was a lot of fun coloring that page and getting to turn it into a postcard. I've already printed out some others that I want to color!
Comment: This swap just came in a mailbag from last week and it was marked as 11/14 so I don't know where it's been hiding for over a month.
Response: How weird! I know you said you had issues with the post office. I already re-sent another little goodie for your daughter for October along with the November one since they hadn't arrived, so she gets an extra stocking stuffer.
Maybe the one from the November swap will show up next month lol.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful mini PL! The color combination is a classic one - I once wanted to have my kitchen in those colors! :D I also thought that it was a nice challenge to put goodies in the same colors in. And yours came just at the perfect moment! I was searching for some music notes to use on a current project, just yesterday. Thank you SO much!!!
Response: Awww yay! I am so glad that you liked them! They are my favorite colors to go together. I had a black bedroom set once and my bedding was all black/white/red. I love the pop that red gives to it. So glad you liked it and the goodies came in handy!
Comment: Thank you so much for absolutely perfect swap! It really made my day! Especially I was surprised to see some address labels - it's so kind of you to print it for me! And this gift is very on time - I need them right now and even wanted to buy/order them. Washi samples and sticky notes are lovely, I liked the designs, thank you!
Response: Awww yay! That makes me feel so good knowing you liked all of it! It was a lot of fun putting it together for you. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much! Can't wait to open it! I just had to come back and add how much I love the Halloween postcard you sent. The more I look at it the more I love it. I really appreciate you participating in the swaps!
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the tropical washi, mini envelopes and especially the address labels!
Hopefully this reached you before you send out the resend. I am so sorry if not as i came home late.
Response: I am so glad it arrived! I did put another envelope in the mail to you today so no worries...you get a bonus surprise!
Comment: Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for the Halloween Jack-O-Lantern decorating kit! I always hand out candy at my future In-Laws' house. I just called and told them I got this so we don't have to carve the pumpkin this year! Soooo excited!!
Response: YAY! I am so glad that you liked it! This swap series has been so fun!
Comment: Thanks so much! I see you're a fellow fruit-flavored tic tac fan :-) I hope you and your family make it through the hurricane safely!
Response: YES! Orange Tic Tacs are my favorite! I actually bought a pack of the ones I sent to you when I got yours and I like those too! Thanks for the thoughts for the hurricane - we're hunkered down and ready for it!
Comment: Thank you so much for this great swap. I am especially thrilled to have these address labels. We moved a few months ago and I didn't have any labels with our new address. I'm thinking of you and praying for safety for you and your loved ones during this awful hurricane.
Response: I am so glad that you liked it! I had lots of fun putting it all together for you! It's funny how we always seem to get address labels sent when we need it the most. I appreciate your thoughts and prayers - hopefully Irma will be a lot weaker when she gets to us.
Comment: I love how bright and colourful your zine is. It's the first photography zine I've gotten and I love it, your pics are all so pretty. Your life sounds so much more exciting than mine! hehe
Response: I am so glad that you liked it! I had a lot of fun putting it together! I am trying to make more for different parts of my photography. Haha my life isn't as exciting as it seems - I am just lucky to work for Disney.
Comment: You've gone above and beyond with this envelope of wonderful stuff. And how clever to make the cards out of paint samples! And of course, I love the sentiment. Where did you get these plastic tabs to put the washi tape samples on. CLEVER!!
Then to top it off with the personalized address labels for me. This was really a great swap, thanks to you. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Response: Awwww, that makes me so happy that you loved everything! The tabs were sent to me by another swapper! I am sure they can be found on Amazon. It was really fun for me to put everything together for you and I am very glad you are happy!
Comment: Oh my goodness!!!! I was in need of return address labels so bad! You totally saved the day. I saw Baymax and got super excited too haha. Love the little swap notes as well, I will definitely use them. Your envelope was one of my favorites! Heart's all around! :)
Response: YAY! I am so glad that you liked it! It was a lot of fun putting this envelope together for you. When I saw you liked Baymax, I knew I had to send that card to you!
Comment: WOW! This is a great envelope full of goodness! I love that you printed me some special swap bot address labels and the insert in your swap cards! Love the old photos and everything else you enclosed-Thanks for sharing!
Response: I am so happy you liked it all! It was a lot of fun to put it together for you! :) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a fabulous package of goodness!! Everything was really thoughtful; I really appreciate all of the attention to details from my profile! Everything was great but your mini zine was the best. Loved the photos in it. Lucky you to live somewhere that you can see them more than once a year. Thanks so much Christina...let's do this again ;-)
Response: I had so much fun putting this together. It was great picking out things that I was hoping you would like. I definitely would love to do this again!
Comment: Thanks so much for the swap!! I love those cute little notecards so much! And the return address labels are awesome, I dont have any, and I love that they have my swapbot username on them too! (The only thing is that the third column has someone else's address on them, oops! Just so you know to double check that next time you print.) :D
EDIT: Thanks so much for the extra sheet of labels!!!! You are really too kind. :) I can't wait to use them, I have been getting tired of writing my name and address a million times. :)
Response: I am so glad that you liked all the goodies! I had a lot of fun putting it together! SO sorry about the address labels. I am going to put another set in the mail for you (I usually use the Find+Replace function on my saved template and I must have missed a column!). EDIT: Glad that you got the extra sheet of labels! Sorry for the mix up the first time! Glad that you will be able to put them to good use :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the great selection of ephemera! I love it all. I licked a many S&H green stamp in my childhood. If I dared to whine about being bored I got the stamp box but I learned finally to whine to my friend's mama instead of my own. She was cool. LOL!
Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun putting this together for you! What a funny story about the S&H stamps! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the Menu & very interesting review! It sounds really Yum & fun! It is a great idea to try all the dishes at your favourite place! That way, one can experiment, but still be in the confidence that it's going to be decent, no matter what the experiment is :)
Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed the swap! I definitely love working my way around the menu! Thanks so much for the rating and for joining!
Comment: I will re-rate if I get anything. Marked sent the 4th.
Received Feb 6th. Thank you so much for sending out your answers to me. I don't mind that they were typed at all. I hope your hand is recovering nicely.
Response: Oh my goodness....I had no idea this never made it to you. I just had wrist surgery so I would have to type my answers as opposed to the first one which was handwritten. I will start remaking it...just will take a little bit typing one handed lol. /// So glad that the re-send got to you. I have been doing well with my recovery - thanks!
Comment: Christmas came early!!! :) LOVE all the yellow (and gold, and ivory, and other pretty shades), especially the milk bottle cap! More buttons, yay, and a twisty straw, how fun! Love the cookbook pages, too-- I have a large collection of that type of imagery; not quite sure what I'm ever going to do with all of it, but I'm sure I'll come up with something, someday. :P Thanks, Christina!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you liked this package too! They are just so much fun putting together. I really like these color-based swaps. Merry Christmas!
Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE all the orange! Thank you! So many buttons, yay! I've always thought the world was sorely lacking in orange buttons; now I know where they were! :) They will come in handy for a monogrammed pillow project I want to do! Thanks again, Christina, you made my day! :)
Response: YAY! I'm so glad that you liked everything! I had a ton of fun putting that package together. The ROYGBIV swaps are definitely some of my favorites so far!
Comment: Well, my dear heart has decided to wait until Christmas to unwrap your gift. But Nekozet and I kinda figured a couple of them out...so thank you so far....it's a beautiful fun gift.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I think that's part of the fun is trying to figure out what's inside the package. I tried to pick some goodies that were from the wishlist you posted :0) Can't wait to hear how his reaction is after Christmas!
Comment: I received your postcards today. Thank you very much! I really like them a LOT! Specially love the swap-bot card. It's new for my collection :)
May I ask you did you made a note card? It's so cute! Thanks again! It was really worth waiting on your swap.
Response: Thanks for the rating! So glad that it made it to you safe and sound. The swap-bot card is one of my favorites. I think the note card is one that I got from a handmade note card swap. I'm happy you liked everything!
Comment: Christina, thank you so much for all the nature goodies and especially for the bird stuff. Those pix will be pretty in my altered bird theme book.
Blessings on your day,
Coleen in Ukraine
please come visit and I"d love it if you followed.
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it all! It was very fun putting the package together :0)
Comment: I'm sorry to hear about everything going on in your life, and I hope 2010 brings you loads of good luck. Thank you for my swap....I won $2 : D
Thank you for participating in this swap as well! Take care and good luck!
Response: Thanks for your kind words. I am praying that 2010 brings much luck for us. I think this was a really fun swap! Glad you won some money!
Comment: I loved your envy of goodies. My favorite part may be the address labels, thank you for the time you took to create them. I am actually working on an ABC art journal, so the alphabet stickers will come in handy as I continue to work on that. Thanks so much for a very fun envy to look through...I liked the homemade envy too! Phyllis
Response: I'm so glad that you liked everything! I love creating address labels! That's too funny that I happened to pick the perfect stickers -- I'm happy they will come in handy! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for all the cute stickers!!
(updated 12/29/09) - I thought you deserved a heart after all since you sent the stickers so promptly. (I still haven't received any from my other partner, the swap coordinator!) Thanks again :)
Response: You're very welcome! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I love the selection of menus. My hubby really enjoyed looking at them, too and was ready for a road trip by the time he looked at them all. :-D Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! It really was fun going through them myself. The places I chose are really good and some of my faves. I wish I could have included more - there's so many great places here to eat! Anytime you take a road trip here you let me know lol
Comment: Wow! Thanks so much for generously sharing all these cool stamps. I've never seen so many different foreign ones! You must have an amazing collection. I promise to put them to good use. Thanks again!!
Response: I'm so glad you like them! It's been great collecting them all! I love seeing all the fun stamps from all around the world!
Comment: Thank you very much for the terrific zentangle-zine! They are very gorgeous. But if you allow me a little tip: If you didn't draw them yourself or have taken any pictures you use in your zines, you got to be very careful with issues of copyright-law: You are not allowed to use pictures another person has taken in your zines without their permission, and you have to give them credit. This could get very nasty (and expensive) ... Anyway, I love it!
Response: I'm so glad you like it. It was fun customizing it to your likes. Thank you very much for the tip you gave. I really appreciate it. I will make sure to know that for future ones :)
Comment: Dear friend, this is one of that moments I'd like to say thanks personally. So great to receive so beautiful stamps and in so perfect shape too! You should send five, but you have sent 15! I do not deserve that! Thanks a lot! I wish I could rate you multiple hearts!
Response: Thank you Gui for the kind words! I'm so glad you liked the stamps! It was fun putting that swap together and I am glad to share the stamps with you!
Comment: Christina, this postcard made me smile the moment I saw it! It is so cheerful, thank you so much...my very first swap item, too! I love Florida, hope you're enjoying the summer! Best wishes, Margarita xxx
Response: I am so happy I was able to bring a smile to your face! I love the cheery colors of the rainbow!
Comment: I received your swap card in a torn envelope at the post office today. I wonder what happened to the inchies inside?
I still will rate you a 5.
Christine, thank you for resending the sweet little cotton tail inchies.
Thank you for your kindness and resending your inchies.
Response: I am so upset to hear that the envelope came torn and the inchies were gone :(
I am seriously getting upset with my post office because I've had a couple things have the same thing happen.
I will make another set to send to you. I am sorry :(
Update: I'm so glad that you got the new set and like them :) Sorry about the first set getting lost.
Comment: OMG I got your package today and everything is soooooo cute! thanks so much I love the labels and the swap cards! like, my eyes got huge when I saw the cards with the animals in little coffee mugs...awwww ^__^ I'll work hard to make sure your package is just as nice!
Response: YAY! I'm so glad you like it! I had a LOT of fun putting it all together! I was scouring the internet for fun pictures and clip art to make it perfect. I have those all saved too so if you ever need more let me know. Plus I can always make different ones :hugs: Glad you liked it!
Comment: Thanks for the super package! I loved the little monkeys and the green guy, and the fiber optic light deal was over the top! I'll now have to go to a concert to show it off, lol! This was so fun, to send and recieve. Again, thanks bunches!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! This swap definitely brought me back to my childhood! :hugs: Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Ugh, mailed yours today. I do not know why here to Florida and visa versa is so much more stinking expensive. I had something way heavier to send to TN and it was like half the price. But the nice post office lady helped me figure out how to cut the cost in half. :) So you will be getting yours shortly!!!
Response: Yay! I look forward to it! Thanks for the rating!!!
Comment: I use to live in Melbourne-Palm Bay, my husband worked at Kennedy. Thank you so much for the hug from Florida. And yes, we have three children, I think they have taught me more than I could ever teach them. Welcome to Swapbot.....
Response: Thank you for the welcome! Glad that you enjoyed the postcard and the quote. Melbourne isn't too far from here -- glad I was able to send you some Florida sunshine :)
