Comment: Guess what I am doing?? Well, I have been on my feet all day and came home to find your lovely letter! I sat down, threw the teabag at my teenager and ordered him to pour some boiling water on top!! And I started reading the article... I can smell the cinnamon from my armchair! Lovely... I am wondering how you can have a cigarette on your sofa when your house is totally flooded and you're immersed in water! This woman is really chilled! Now I am going to start to read the article seriously... But first, my tea...haaaa thanks!!â˜•
Comment: Thank you so much for the mag article+tea package +also for the cards!! I love all of what you sent me! Haven't tasted the teas which is nice, and they sound yummy and the article seems exciting and how did you know I love japanese things (the cards) :) And on top of that I just felt like drinking tea+reading today, and then I went to pick my mail and oh how happy I was to receive your awesome envie! :)))
Comment: Thank you so much! The cards are beautiful, I am looking forward to reading the articles, and I really liked your choices of teas! My daughter has a cold, so she claimed the echinecea tea right away. The other one I am saving for myself!
Comment: Thanks so much for this swap! The snacks are yummy and I've never seen them here in the states before. I love new stuff!! The tea looks so good today is the perfect snowy day to try it. The hand warmer was a awesome surprise. It's so cute, I would love to have more. I tried to look online but I didn't see any cute ones :-( Thanks again!
Comment: I must confess I opened this a day early because it didn't fit in my stocking and I was intrigued - what a perfect present choice! I love them :-) thank you so much! I love the handmade card as well, great idea xxx
Comment: I love the ribbons and lace on the first two pages- very pink! The poem used as part of the page is very cool - I keep meaning to try and use old book pages but something in me can't cut the pages out and things like that lol. I also love the pinhole camera photos (I think) used on the next set of pages. Andy Warhol is one of my faves :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the presents. I opened them today at Winter Solstice and they are delightful. I love your handmade item, it is truly beautiful and the soap is delicious. Thank you so much. Truly appreciate it.
Comment: Thank you Jo, I liked the photos and the stitched detail on the cover. My sunflower was about the same size as yours and all my other seedlings were equally bad this year too but never mind try again next year!
Comment: How fun to see that "found" stuff from across the water is both the same and fascinatingly different from stuff over here. I put in a lot of the same kind of stuff! Thank you! Makes me want to come back for a visit. Love the UK!
Comment: Thanks so much for the cute Engrish journal and managing to get the extra stickers in there without them falling out! Only a single page corner was bent from the journey -- can you believe it? :)
Response: so glad you like it and it got to you ok, enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for the pages in my journal. I love the way you've used the ink, the lime green pops and blowing through a straw to make the trees has worked really well. Hope to do it again some day.
Comment: Wow! Thankyou very much. I'm running a bookcrossing meet on Saturday so I can use the post its them, and I can use some of the jewellery tonight to make a bracelet for a valentine swap. Much appreciated. :)
Comment: I don't like tea but CJ loves it so I fed it to him lol. I loved the footnotes I just need to work out how to detach them from the page without wrecking the page lol. I loved the knitted bit on the phone. I love the prints that you did - I need a picture frame now so I can hang them up somewhere lol. Sorry for the delay in rating.
Comment: Hi Jo, thank you so much for the wonderful parcel of goodies! This is just perfect, I'm having a crazy busy week so it will all be put to very good use at the end of it - I can't wait! It's exactly what I would want for a pamper evening! Thank you :-)
Comment: Hi Jo, I got my package today and was delighted!!! Your frida ornament was awesome! I love how the light relfects off the sparkles onto her face, I'll use that idea in a future ornament! The chocolates are gone :)
Thanks for hosting too!
Response: so glad you like it, i was trying to think of a way of making it 3d and it just came to me in the bath!
Comment: Thanks for the yummy selection of teas. Funny as I opened your article about sewing, I was sitting in front of my machine doing just that. I agree home made is much better :) Happy Swapping Tracy
Comment: Thanks Jo, the teas smell delicious and I like the article! (how did you know I was a hoarder?! I don't have any medical specimens in glass jars though yet...and when I finish here I'm going to look at Glossypium kits so a big hearty THANKYOU!
Comment: Thanks for a lovely Journal Jo, It was such fun getting to know you. I loved the entry 'Random Things About Me' and I loved the collage you made. Thank you very much, and I shall put my gifts to good use x
Comment: Thank you for all your wonderful journal entries - I enjoyed every one. I particularly liked the Badge Making and the Zentangle entry. I must also learn about moo cards - what a great idea. Thank you also for the extras, I loved the Tutti Cuti gift cards :)
Comment: Steve was thrilled with his first ever swap package and had ripped open the coffee pack before I could even take a picture of the swap. The caramac bar has already been eaten and we're fighting over the socks. The stripey one's would make a great sock monkey!
Comment: Thanks so much for the Dr. Who swap, my Dalek charm arrived broken :( But its still really cute! And I LOVE my sticker, my husband keeps trying to talk me into letting him put it on his car haha. Thanks!
Comment: Woohoo! I got some GREAT magnets! Thanks for all your effort.
Response: this is the first time a swap of mine hasn't arrived. I posted to both my partners at the same time and the other one arrived on the 5th March!
I suppose after 70 swaps this was bound to happen at some point but what a shame it was your parcel. I'll send again.
April 14th - resent this morning.
