Comment: Oh my I am so sorry for the loss of your father, it is so hard to loss such an important person in your life, It is never easy, I hope things are improving, you need not have worried about the swap, I absolutely love the earrings they are beautiful!It was so kind of you.God bless and know you and your mother are in my prayers I hope you don't mind.
Comment: Due to extenuating circumstances which you have detailed publicly on both your profile and personally in the swap to me, this was three months late. Otherwise, it met the posted requirements of this swap. **However, there is NOTHING in Swap-Bot rules that requires that a swapper be marked down for lateness alone -- this is totally within the discretion of the rater.** I will also be sending you a private message.
Comment: I'm sorry for the loss of your father :( I understand why this is late, after all swapping is for fun and family, work and personal stuff comes first. Thanks so much for the extras, and I enjoyed your log. I found it interesting to see a couple books that are by well known authors but not their well known work! I'll have to check out a lot of the books on your list. Lastly..I love everything in theater- I've done just about every job as well, but my favorite part is props and stage management. Maybe one day I'll get back into acting too :)
Response: :-) Stage Management is awesome. I'm glad you enjoyed. Thank you.
Comment: I got a wonderful set of PCs this week in the mail..every one of them, I would have picked out myself... LOVE IT thanks a bunch and bunches!!! THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF MY FAVS TOP TEN OUT OF HUNDREDS!!!
Comment: Hey there! It is so nice to meet a fellow theatre lover! I'm sure it is on my profile but my dogs are named after "Spring Awakening". Our great dane is Melchior and our rottweiler mix is Wendla. Maybe we can do a private theatre swap of some sort?
Comment: Kimberly, what a pleasant surprise...Conway. One daughter lives in Conway and one in NLR. Our mission center is in Conway. Small world. Made me feel good to get something from there. Thank you for the stamps. I like them a lot and I loce the pretty card you sent. I shall recycle it. Blessings, Coleen, an American in Ukraine.
Comment: Thank you so much! I loved reading your letter and the explanation of all the items, photo's and ephemera. What a big garden that is at your parents house and the view from the water makes me want to jump on a plane and to get into your boat! The Squirrel is so sweet! thank you for the magazines, the newspaper (loved it!!!), and all the other things. You have made my day. And I have been to Barnes and Nobles in New York several times, it is heaven for people who love books! Also congratulations on winning your home-coming game! Again thank you and a lot of hearts for your thougtfull package!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. :-) It was fun to put together.
Comment: I wish I had more hearts to give you. This was the coolest. I love the smartass notebook and I LOVE the Doctor Who postcards. EVERYONE SHOULD BE JEALOUS BECAUSE I GOT THE COOLEST STUFF!! :D:D:D
Comment: It arrived on my birthday, today 22/10 and looks fabulous and I may even have the time to create with it today, as I have given myself the afternoon to play ATC's. Thanks-you so much and I will certainly let you see what I create.
Comment: Thank you Kimberly for the 3 Deco Books. Its exciting for me to have Deco Books to add my art to then pass on to my friends who love Deco Books also. Loved your Zebra mail art envelope & the stamps! Hope we can swap again in future.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I put my pins behind shadow boxes. They have a velvet liner on them where you can stick the pins and they are behind glass. No dusting. You can get them at Michael's. Shirley
Comment: Oh my gosh, where to start?! I loved the whole thing! The earrings were very cool, the perfect thing for fancy events, and the wall hanging was just awesome! I actually have an espresso machine, and it's the perfect piece to hang next to it! The Ood Postcard was the best thing ever! Thank you so much! Oh, also the washi tape! Hello Kitty and washi tape are two of my favourite things! WHEEE!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great music list--I loved it! It's funny that we had "A" the same. For me, it was a nice balance of familiar songs and things to check out. Also liked your black and white themed paper and envelope.
Comment: Great ATC! Thank you. I have never been to Arkansas, but my partner has relatives you are from there. I love the extras you sent. I was so excited to see the travel stickers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I would give you 3 hearts if I could. Thanks a bunch!
Comment: i thought i rated you for this a long time ago! i got your letter in the mail! i hope that you are feeling better than the day before you wrote!! sorry it has taken me so long to rate you! i apologize!
Comment: Your art is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to place it somewhere special. I have next Friday off so I will be on the prowl first thing in the morning. I am keeping one, though...thanks for sending 2, as well as all of the extras! It was very nice swapping with you!
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter! It just made my heart melt for you, it's obvious how much you care about your students, and that's so good to see in a teacher. You remind me of how lucky I was to have some really great teachers growing up, and in college, too, when life was rough. Hang in there and keep being awesome!
Comment: The funny thing about receiving from you in particular is that of all the tea I own, I totally lack any variety in black tea. Also, earl grey is actually my favorite, but I've been stuck on Twinings. Thank you for all the great new ones to try!
Comment: Thanks for the Incredibles card. It is nice when you don't do much. I watched My son, a friend and my grandson power wash my mobile home then seal the roof . The oprative word is watched as they won't let me do any of the hard stuff.
Comment: Thanks for the high quality assortment! I'm looking forward to pairing them up with ideal recipients in the coming weeks. =) (All in mint, new condition and a cute notecard was enclosed with a clear reminder of which swap they were for. Swap coordinators reading this: she's a keeper!)
Comment: I absolutely adore the butterfly and the fact that you took the picture makes it that much more special. PS - don't forget to write the swap name but of course all your pretty colors gave it away ;)
Response: Woops. I'm usually pretty good about that. Sorry!
Comment: Hello Kimberly, I was so glad with your envelope, the teas and the letter you wrote to me! Thank you very much! Thank you for telling me about your work and your love for tea! I wish you all the best and happy swapping!!! Greets, Aafke
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful vintage Disney comic pages! Where on earth did you find these? They're amazing! I don't remember the last time I saw Daisy's nieces. It's so incredibly cool I can't bring myself to cut them up so thank you!
Response: I am glad you like them. They were just sitting in a junk store. The gut said he had more, but I didn't have time to look through the box. I was giddy too!
Comment: Thanks for a wonderfully funny card of the Pixar birds on the wire - I love it (Pixar too)! :oD Their expressions made me laugh, and it just so happened I was out at my mailbox when the UPS man came - I showed it to the driver, and he thought it was cute too. ;o) I think maybe the reason birds like sitting on the wires is for the clear view? I like to watch them on windy days, trying to keep their balance. ;oP
Comment: Hi again Kimberly. Thank you so much for the 2 ATCs. They are both great! I love the pansy, how did you do that? I also love the butterfly, thanks for reading my profile! Cheers, Christine
Response: I am glad you liked it. The pansy was a photo I took, then played around with filters in photoshop till I liked howit looked. I don't remember which filters it was, but it was me learning phtoshop and experimenting :-)
Comment: Thank you Kimberly! I was so excited when your box came today. I haven't tried all of those flavours, though I do occasionally "cross the border" to pick up k-cups. :) So excited to try them! Thanks again!
Comment: Wow!!! What an amazing surprise package!!! I loved opening everything!!! For it to have been a blind swap, I sure lucked out with alot of great things to use that I LOVE!!! Thank you so much!!! Seriously, wow!!
Response: I am so glad that it worked out that way. :-) I was afraid they would go to someone who wouldn't like them. Lol It was hard to follow the rules and wrap them a day early.
Comment: What a fun package you sent! I couldn't keep myself from opening the first one, but I'm forcing myself to wait for the other days. It's SOOOOO hard, lol! The book was perfect--been on my list of to-reads for years, and now I have. Thank you, bunches!
Response: I'm so glad you liked the book. I hope you like the rest as well!
Comment: Hi Kimberly! Thanks a lot for all the rolos you sent me, you really pleased me :-) I loved to read your letter as well and laughed a lot about your youngest cousin's name xD Love and regards from a Pony lover... xoxo
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC, I love to paint and sketch, so art is in my blood. LOL I grew up in a small town, Big store that had gas pumps out front, bar on the side, and post office on the other side. ha ha Had a grade school through 8th grade and a church that was 100 years old the year I was married in it. Volunteer firetruck was parked beside the store, and there was a old roller skating/dance hall, that was not in use any more behind. Us kids would gather with our skates and the owner would let us skate to our hearts content as long as we did no damage and kept is swept and locked. Great memories of childhood. ha ha I love flowers too, but too old to weed them any more, so except for my bearded iris I don't have much that can't forage for itself. Best wishes Marcia
