Comment: Thank you SO SO SO much! This package was so over the top and wonderful. I had a rough day at work, and coming home to this wonderful mail was so nice I almost cried haha. Everything was awesome, and I can't thank you enough!!! <3 I wish I could give you a billion hearts!
Comment: Oh what a fun time I had looking thru all my goodies. Thank you so much for a VERY fun package. I have not tried my hand at pocket letters yet. And opening each "pocket" was like Christmas. I placed that little piggie upon my keepsake shelf. You really went all out. Thank you so very much. I just LOVED the Christmas cards you sent since I go through them so fast around the holidays, This was the best month ever!
Response: I'm glad you had fun, as I did too. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: I am blown away by the 8 holidays I get to celebrate with you. Thank you so very much. Hug a cat day is today and the treats are perfect. As is all the other "fun" and interesting items you sent. This has truly been a very fun swap. See you in future swaps.
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart and I'm so glad you had so much fun with this swap!
Comment: This was such a fun package to open! My dog heard the toy squeak and tried to run off with one of the animal pillows thinking it was the squeaking toy! My daughter quickly laid claim to the lollipops and my son the cat pillow. My favorite thing was the Nasturtium seeds! I've been looking for them and the stores aren't carrying them like they used to so this was really special to me. It's obvious you read my profile lol. Thank you so much!
Response: Glad I made everyone's day! Thanks for the rating with a heart!
Comment: This amazing package arrived yesterday. Sadly, the paper was torn in many places, but it was so carefully wrapped that nothing was harmed. I LOVED all of the holiday presents. I am trying to decide where to hang my new clock. It's so fun! I'm going to have to get a pillow form for my new pillow, too! Thank you for a wonderful swap!!
Response: I am so glad that it arrived still after the paper being so torn.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely box and all of the fun celebrations! May is an awesome month because of you!!
To make it even better, I won $5 from the lottery card with the lucky penny! I'll redeem it on my annual trip to Petoskey in August for a handbell event.
Response: Thank you so much! So glad you won $5! If you don't get to Petoskey, you can always mail the ticket to me and I can cash it in and send you $5.
Comment: Thank you sooooooo much!!!This is still by far my most favorite swap :):) & I love being your swap buddy, lol your package was so awesome & cute. I appreciate all the little Valentines that you made for the holidays. You are so creative, I loved everything you sent me & I am currently wearing my slice of pizza blanket as I type this. Lol Also did you make the little bird?? So cute :) Thank you so much for making my February swap so much fun.
Response: Thanks for your kind words! Yes, I made the bird. I was wondering when you would receive your package because of the cold weather. We haven't had mail delivery all week.
Comment: Definitely a fun and creative swap. Your package arrived the same day as an invite to a local Audubon white elephant swap--so much to choose from. Thanks--I'm well stocked for upcoming gift giving. I did receive the rhinestones in the mail today. Thank you again.
Response: I'm glad you had fun with lots of choices
Comment: Thank you so much for your package of goodies. I enjoy this swap so much i remember it from way back when in 2014 or so!! I loved how you went through my profile. I loved the individual packaging and my birthday gift and receipes are great!!! If i could give this 100 stars I would! Thank you so much for your kindness. I am going to really enjoy it all and my dogs have already fought over who gets to play with the new chew toys!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
Response: You are welcome and so glad you liked your package. Thanks for the rating and heart! I've been hosting this swap since August 2007. Please join again!
Comment: If there was an option for it, I'd give multiple hearts. You definitely made this swap very fun, it was like Christmas pulling the items out from the package, each item lovingly wrapped with extras, I was so amazed by the kindness you put into the items you sent, thank you so very much.

Have I told you I'm from Michigan originally, and more specifically, I went to high school in Dearborn. Fordson High, in East born. Used to love going to Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. Anyhow Barbara, many hearts to you for such an enchanting box of goodness.

Comment: Thank you so much Barbara I just LOVE your swap & always have fun with it. Thank you for always hosting it. I loved all the goodies you sent, the witch was so cute , I have not seen that idea before, it was so cute!! :):)
Comment: This is the second time I have received this swap from you, and definitely the second time you really outdid yourself! I had SO much fun going through everything, I can't believe you put so much effort into each item. Keep this part a secret, but I was just in a big item profile-based swap, but I found far more things I liked & were related to my interests in your swap (shh!!)! I think everything in your box was just awesome, & I really, really am indebted to your generosity. Hopefully you will be my partner next!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and I'm glad you had fun with everything!
Comment: WOW !!!! What a package !! Thank you so much. You sure found all my favorites. The X stitch items are exactly what I do. Just finished pillow cases with little piggy's on them. The AVON jar is great. It will go on the shelf with the others AVON. The silly things made me chuckle. I used to eat Vienna Sausages way back when I was "really" poor and they were cheap. The coloring book is perfect for me and I've never seen cards like these. Really cute. Thank you so much for every thing. Loved it all.
Response: I grew up on Vienna Sausages as a kid! I'm glad you had fun with the package! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for thoughtful swap. It smelled very heavy of cigarette smoke though.
Edit - I'm not sure exactly what the scent is but there's a strong odor on every item that doesn't smell pleasant which is unfortunate because you included so many wonderful things. I have everything trying to air out now.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I don't know how it smelled of cigarette smoke, as we have a smoke-free house because we take care of my husband's elderly parents who are 88 and 91. I do put my swaps together outside, where we have a chiminea, fire pit, and bbq grill. I'm sorry.
Comment: You are such a gem, thank you SO much for the package!! Everything in there was so cool and unexpected. My boyfriend has already helped himself to the Cracker Jacks & tuna. I wish I could give you a million stars & hearts, thank you so much! I had so much fun with this swap, I can't wait to join next month's!!
Response: I am so glad you had fun with this swap. Please join the next month's and thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Wow! Amazing box of goodies, thank you very much! You really sent a lot of wonderful items and it is very much appreciated! I ðŸ’— the button rooster, very creative! How did you know I needed a new tooth brush, LOL. I also love popcorn, I crave it. The salt and pepper shaker are awesome and love the tea and little cups you made, very cute. I just opened the St. Patrick's Day towel, I can't believe you sent a scratch card! ðŸ˜Ž If I win anything substantial, I'll split it.
I also really enjoy these Wacky, Silly & Unusual Holidays swaps, thank you for hosting them.

Comment: This by far is my favorite swap, as I am sure I mentioned before, lol I LOVED your package. You sent something from all my favorites, loved the cookies & candy, & yes I ate them already lol & the sea monkeys will be hatching sometime today after 4. I loved them as a kid & I still do, they are on a shelf above my craft desk.Also coloring is one of my favorite things to do, I am so glad they decided to give it a more grown-up title "art therapy" lol so now I don't feel so silly. Anyways thank you for so many fun things. I always love swapping with you, & thank you so much for always hosting this great swap. Hugs to you :)

Thank you so so much for this extra special box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love them all!
Response: So glad you liked your package, and the guy at work too! Thanks for the heart!

Response: I couldn't resist sea monkey day! Glad you had fun. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: YOU DID A FANTASTIC JOB WITH THIS SWAP!!!!!! It was so much fun to open your package. I lost count of the number of holidays that you celebrated with me :-) You did an excellent job of matching gifts to my profile. Of course, the gardening items were one of my favorites, but "High Five Day" is right up there too. I also noticed that you are the coordinator of this swap. You've definitely help to raise the bar for me to meet on my future swaps. Keep up the great work.
Response: Thanks so much for the kind words and the heart! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it!
Comment: I sat down to enjoy opening everything and what fun! Love the Middle name pride info, labels and family story. I always need floss, Monopoly chocolate game was so clever for salesperson day and it was great. Bill has absconded with the Irish Spring so even he had fun with it. Thank you. Love these swaps. Very nice presentation too ;) <3
Comment: Oh my gosh you went all out- How can I give you extra hearts and a giant thank you. So much fun and a distraction from the holiday things I didn't have to do with lots of laughs and smiles. Your package was super thoughtful
Response: I'm so glad you liked your swap. Thanks for the rating and heart! Happy Holidays!
Comment: This was an awesome swap!! Better than Christmas Day here for me. TY TY TY You made everything so pretty & fun I really didnt want to open them. If I could give you a thousand stars I certainly would. My youngest daughter had a blast opening it all up with me. I know next month for my partner I need to step up my game for creativity, your gifts were just perfect for the day selected. I already have the postcards filed with my growing collection & they were great patterns & I'm already seeing if I can craft something with the box the postcards came in. You certainly made my day!!! I can't Thank you enough!! xoxo
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed this swap! I tend to go overboard. Thanks for your comments and rating!

Response: You're welcome and I'm glad you enjoyed it all! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: What a delightful surprise!! The package you sent was filled with so many wonderful things. It is like Christmas in June! Thank you !!
For some reason I did not give you a heart properly .. And this package deserved 5 stars!!!
Response: Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you SO much Barbara! You never cease to amazing me with your packages! I love everything, from the makeup bag, the organic soaps, the hat but I believe my favourite park is the mushroom tea bag holder, how cool! Thank you for taking the time to put this together! And YAY, stamps!!!! ♥
Response: I'm so glad you loved everything!! Enjoy your holidays. Thanks so much for the rating and for joining!
Comment: Hi Barbara! I am so sorry I haven't rated sooner! I love your package! You have not sent me the glow in the dark bath stuff. I am so curious to try it! I wonder if I will glow after using it? LOL! Thanks so much for the fun stuff! The jumping beans are wacky! :-) I enjoyed everything!
Response: Thanks for rating and enjoy all the fun stuff!
Comment: Barb, you are the best! What a great swap. I showed no restraint last night and just ripped through the entire box. I love everything and love how clever you were! Especially love the handmade towels, note cards (yes I will do something creative with them), and those snowmen soap pumpers are being filled and put out today. This is my favorite swap and I so appreciate all the work you put into it every month!
Response: Thanks for the heart and your kind words. Glad to hear this is your favorite swap!
Comment: Oh my!! This swap really made me smile. Everything was so well put together and the surprises just kept coming and coming. I got my package on Saturday and it was perfect timing. I was crafting something for my friend and needed pins to attach some fabric to a t-shirt. I knew I had some but I couldn't find them for the life of me. Then I opened the package and saw the pin book. You saved the day!! I really loved everything. Thank you for being a wonderful swap partner and an incredible host!
Response: If I made your day, then I made mine too! Glad you had fun and thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Barbara, thank you so much! This is my favorite swap, you have such a great following. You made my swap so special. I am bringing Mad Hatter to work to decorate my desk, it's not very festive there right now, he will cheer the place up! Also love the nuts, the cookie mix and recipe (may try that today), buttons, trims, Halloween pot holders, everything was so fun and so clever. Happy October!
Response: I'm so glad you liked this. I had a mental block this past month with so much going on, and I wanted to make it special because you put alot into your swaps and because you're you! I didn't want to send too many food or Halloween items either. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: If I could give you six stars I would- this was an AWESOME box. I had to stop myself from flipping through the book and go to bed last night. The pasta is hilarious- can't wait for girls night to make it! The rest was amazing too. Thank you!!!
Response: You're welcome. Thanks for the rating and for joining. Glad you liked it!
Comment: As usual, a wonderful swap received from you! From the items you chose, the wrapping and the extra special touches on each package! Love it all! I wish I can give you a dozen hearts! My daughter helped me open them and was thrilled that there was stuff for her and of course, hubby will be happy with the butterscotch! Very intrigued with that lemon pepper chocolate bar too!! Thank you so much!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked your package and I always feel the same way about yours too! Thanks for the rating and I appreciate you joining this swap over the years! Thank you!
Comment: WOW!! Again!! As always, you go above and beyond! As soon as I saw who the package was from, I knew I was in for a treat. I opened the first one â€” great job on the hat! I tried knitting, and I couldn't do it. I've never tried to crotchet. I have "Mike's hat" on display in my office with my Monkees collectibles. And then the holidays never seemed to end! Loved everything and the tags were so cute! Did you make them? Can't wait to try the popcorn for the next Bears game or movie night, whichever comes first. When I opened up the pumpkin designs, I laughed so hard (Dwight was on top!). Don't know if I'm talented enough to make them work, but I'd love to have the Don Draper pumpkin! Talk about a yummy treat! Thanks again for making this such a special swap! And hosting it!
Response: So glad you enjoyed your package. I just printed the tags from the computer. Thanks so much for joining. Thanks for the rating and heart too!
Comment: What an awesome box to get! This heart of yours? Multiply it by infinity! I opened everything when I got it [which was yesterday, since I've been out of state]. I am in love with every single thing! Thank you so very much!
Response: I am so glad you loved everything! Thanks for the 5 and heart and happy swapping!
Comment: WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I came home to a FABULOUS package today! You went SO far above and beyond, it's amazing. Your interpretation of "watermelon" was so cute! And I LOVE the little whale and the journal is pink! I DO remember the little footless sandals--that really took me back. It's interesting that I also read Family Fun regularly! Even though my kids are grown. I had missed the issue you sent, so thank you. And the KITTY BOOKMARK!!! How could I forget that little pink kitty?!? SOOOOO cute. This was one of the nicest swap packages I've ever received. Many many thanks (oh and the stationery!! I LOVE the stationery!)
Response: You're welcome and thank you for the 5 and heart! I'm so glad you enjoyed your package!
Comment: I am so sorry I thought I had rated you for this wonderful swap you sent me already I loved everything but oddly enough my favorite part was the bags with the word searches made into the bag I loved contents but that was a totally cool idea
Response: You mentioned you like word games so that's why I made the word search bags. Glad you liked it all and thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: BARBARA!!!! What an amazing swap box I received from you...Holy guacamoley...you outdid yourself, and I couldn't stop giggling as I unwound the ball of yarn to get to my birthday goodies...it was just what the doctor ordered, since I burried my dog this past week. That entire box was a delight. A gazillion hearts to you...Please keep in touch, and thanks a million.
Response: I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. I'm glad this package helped a little. Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: I don't know what to say other than... WOW! You must have spent so much time putting this together...I think I counted 11 holidays you included! Did you seriously make these beach scene and bathing suit washcloths? They are Amazing! I sincerely love and appreciate everything you sent. Thank you so much!
Hugs from Maryland, Jessica
Response: Thanks for the rating and I'm so glad you liked it all. Yes, I crocheted the washcloths and wanted to do a beach theme since you like the beach alot!
Comment: what fun! It just kept going! I especially loved the fuzzy socks and the cat potholders....potholders to start off my new kitchen. I can't wait! Hoping to be in an apartment of my own again in the next couple weeks. Thank you!
Response: You're welcome and thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a wonderful pkg! Thanks very much for the yarn and the rubber stamps. The rubber stamps are just perfect for me and I plan on using them for a seed swap I'm in and for ATCs. Have you used that yarn before? I've seen the lacy yarn in the store where they just knit into the edge and it makes a lacy/curly scarf, so I'm wondering if this would work like that?
Many hearts to you (=^.^=)
Response: Thanks so much for the rating and heart! I have used that yarn to crochet a small purse. I like it because it's something different.
Comment: Great package! Thanks so much! Where did you find such cute Dr. Seuss things? Oh and the Wocket Pocket is so adorable. I'm sure my son is going to claim some of this! Thanks for joining the swap!
Response: I made the Wocket Pocket, labels and Thing 1 and Thing 2. You got that swap fast! Thanks for rating!
Comment: got your great package and I must say you did quite a wonderful job! loved the cards and the smells in the pink box - some of my favs. And I can always use some new nail polish. But the funniest item was the gummy hearts - my hubby and I were just at the drugstore and when I picked up a bag of these he told me I didn't need them so I put them back. So it was so funny when I opened your package and there they were. So that goes to show that I really was meant to have them. Thanks again.
Response: Glad you got your gummy hearts! Thanks for rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package! You really went above and beyond! I love not only my items, but the way you wrapped them with yarn was so inventive! Thank you so much, I love it and can't wait to celebrate my weird holidays! I especially love the cotton candy day- its my fav food and I was hoping my partner would do that one for me when I first looked at the holidays! Thanks again and have a wonderful holiday season.
Response: Glad you liked your package and thanks for the rating. Happy holidays to you too!
Comment: Wow! I love this. I was so happy to see all the chihuahua stuff especially, but everything in here was so neat. The handmade knitted? owl is amazing too! This package was so special, and you were so nice to tailor it to my profile. I've already gotten compliments on the bracelet too! Thanks!
Response: Glad you liked the package and thanks so much for the rating! The owl is crocheted and I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the way it turned out. I just moved and had to make do with the supplies I could find! Thanks!
Comment: Wow! Another great package! And a Pez I don't have! Wish I could give you extra hearts for that! The pork chop spices is a cool idea â€” one I've never seen, but it sure sounds good. And I'm going to try at least three of the S'mores recipes! The flip flops are cute, as is the melon bag. And I can use the book at school. You can never have too many mirrors for your purse â€” or chapstick either! My mom loves lighthouses, so I'm going to try to make the bookmark for her. But it's been awhile since I've done any needlework. Thanks for an awesome swap!
Response: Glad you liked it all and thanks for the rating!
Comment: OH MY WORD!!!!!!! You are now my most favorite Queen craftygirl...........I so look up to you! You keep amazing me beyond anything I could ever imagine! I love you, you are so sweet and so talented (even being sick, you are so awesome)! Love the light, the kids love the light!! I love my new bag. I am thinking of collecting seashells over the summer and filling it up and putting it in my bathroom. The coaster is awesome as I need them all over the house, as I have a mug of coffee going at ALL times during the day (and night)! Love your wrapping, my son Ryan read the funnies and said "these are for older people, like you mom!" ~ because he didn't get them LOL, he is so lucky I love him with every breath I take! Love what you did with the cassettes tape, I have so many of those just sitting around! Barb ~ I can't not thank you enough. Thank you so much! Love Kelly :)
Response: You thanked me enough! Thanks for all the kind words and for rating a 5 with a heart! I loved the challenge!
Comment: Great pkg Loved all your choices. I've already picked some recipes from the cookbook to try. The mouse pad is great cause I'm always looking for paper to write on. cd is going in the car and I loved the "hands" Always can use labels.The keychain willl go to my daughters collection. The moon charm will find its way into one of my crazy quilt blocks. Thanks again so much
Response: Thank you for rating a 5 and heart and glad you found a use for everything!
Comment: The absolute best! Not only did Barbara send much more than the requirements, but since my birthday happened to be close, she even sent me a birthday present! Which, actually, was really the only birthday present I got this year!
Response: Thanks so much for rating and I'm glad you got at least a present from me!
Comment: Barbara ~ you are so very, very talented! WOW ~ those items are awesome! The ball my granddaughter named "Lucy" and took her home for her tubby. The heart and flower were made for my bathroom (you can by and picked, didn't you? LOL)! And I will never you the "K" scrubber, it is way too nice, thank you so much!!
Response: Thanks for the heart! This was a tough one, but I liked the challenge. I'm glad your granddaughter has been enjoying some of the goodies also!
Comment: Barbara ~ you blow me away! OMWord, what an awesome crafty idea ~ I love it. It took me a few minutes to figure out how you made the colored circles on the sticks ~ rolled up ribbon, right? I love the bracelets too, well actually my granddaughter really loves them ~ she borrowed them. She said she would bring them back. Thank you so much!!!
Response: Yes, the circles are rolled up ribbon. This was a replica of the retro sunbursts that were popular. I love retro and want to make one for myself! Glad you and your grand daughter liked the bracelets. Thanks for hosting these fun swaps and thanks for the rating!
Comment: You went nuts! hahaha I love it, I showed it all off to my husband the second he got home. he was confused for a minute, he asked, "what was the theme for this swap" and I told him it was lids, and he was all ohhhhhh. made me giggle. Thanks so much!!!
Response: I had so much fun with this swap and couldn't quit thinking of new things to make! Glad you liked it and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh wow where do I start??? I should probably start off with the fact that I was shreiking with giddy excitement while I opened each pkg... You sent me a bday gift...THANK YOU so sweet and thoughtful!! Totally going to have fun making a tank top... Oh happiness the popcorn washcloth or mug rug is frakken fabulous!! The egg idea was genious!! Love it and all the little treats that came out of it. Love the martini recipes! I'm having a craft night tomorrow and we are making martinis!! Going to try a new recipe from the stash... love the lemonheads and the crazy erasers... Now I seriously have to tell you that the thing that made me the happiest was the.. (drumroll please) 8 tracks!!! Ok now don't laugh my husband is 13 yrs older than me and I had to first ask him if thats what they were and then I got really excited.. I have never seen one. I know crazy but really made me happy! Thank you so much!!!!
Response: I am so glad you liked your package. Thanks for the 5 and heart!

Response: Thanks for the rating and heart and star! You can always come to my parties! ha!
Comment: We were having an old boring, rainy day Saturday today-----until the mailman brought us a wonderful package! Bri was opening her package and I was opening the wonderful bird clock and we were both saying, "ohmygosh!". This clock is so cute!!! You couldn't know this, but the green color on the picture is the exact color of my cabinet doors! It was so sweet of you to send the doll goodie bag to Bri--she loves them! Coke caps and fun mags, too---you really spoiled me---I thank so you so very much and I sure wish I could give you lots more hearts!
Response: It's a gloomy day today here too! Glad I could brighten it a little for you. I loved the bird clock also! Thank you for rating!
Comment: Hello Barbara,
Received your package of handmade items on April 7th. You showed some variety of using one material and the many different things you could make--example yarn. I appreciate your generosity in wanting to do more than 4 projects. Happy Swapping!!!
Comment: This is the best swap ever in the history of swaps. I have spent the last hour laughing my butt off. Everything you sent is hilarious--absolutely well played pranks! The Playboy bunny in the bathroom made me think of the Jersey Shore--Mister cocky! OMG! Cocky--the shirt is a riot! And the custom made (PERFECT) beer coozie is going to take a ton of camping trips with me this summer; I guarantee all of my friends are going to ask where I got it--you'll be infamous in Seattle by August! Thank you so much for such an awesome swap--this made my month!
Response: I'm so glad you had fun with this swap. It was so easy having you for a partner for this, as I knew I wouldn't offend you. Glad we have the same sense of humor! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: i love everything you put in each of these parcels - however, i do want to let you know that everything reeked of smoke & i'm still letting it all air out, as i can't have that smell in my house :(
Comment: Once again, a GREAT swap! You always have the cutest ideas! I love everything! We just had a unit on imagination at preschool â€” I could have used the fairy-tale stationary for that. Maybe next year... Thanks again for being such a wonder swap partner. And thanks for hosting such a fun swap.
Response: So glad to hear that you liked everything and you enjoy this swap. Thank you.
Comment: Holy cow, I love it! Your letter was SO entertaining, thank you for that. Before I read it, I thought the sewing kit perfect for vacations, just like your "victim." :) Key chain, and hair thingies are great. I don't do Soduku either, but the pencils are very cool!! thanks Barbara!!!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It was fun. Thank you for the rating and have a great birthday in a couple days!
Comment: Thank you so much! I opened a few things because i could not resist and they were completely awesome! I am excited to open the rest, but I am saving them for xmas so I have lots to open that day :) I am sure I will have more thank yous coming your way soon!! You really made the best of your ten thrift dollars!
Response: Glad you like! Thank you for rating. Merry Christmas!
Comment: WOW. what a huge box of stuff to go thru!! i really love the "weird" parcel, but everything was great!!! my little boy stole the wind-up sushi, hehe, so that was a hit as well! thanks for the swap!!
Response: Great! Glad you liked everything. I LOVE weird stuff! Thanks for rating!
Comment: Barbara, what a wonderful, wonderful swap! Thank you sooo much! I wish I could give you a dozen hearts for each day of Christmas. I actually mustered up the patience to open one a day with my daughter (and she loved that!) for the 1st 6 days and then decided to open the rest of them before leaving for vacation. LOVE everything! Thank you for putting such care into each gift and being so creative and clever with the days and the packing and the poems on the tags. It's swappers like you that really make swapping so much fun and enjoyable and worth it! Truly a big thanks!! Happy Holidays!
Response: Thank you for the rating and I can't wait for you to open them all! Now that you've opened them all, I'm so glad you enjoyed this swap. Thanks for your kind words!
Comment: WOW!!! WOW!!! I can't believe how overboard you went!! I have to say that this is the best Swap I've ever gotten. It makes up for the ones I've been flaked on in the Newbie group. Everything was wonderful! And I can tell you really read my profile. Not everyone does. This has always been my favorite swap because it's so much fun finding all the goodies. But this time it was even more fun opening up all your goodies. And your handmade tags and ribbons were so cute â€” how do you have the time? THANK YOU!! You deserve many, many hearts! P.S. Micky is my favorite Monkee! I've seen them in concert (minus Mike) several times, and even got to interview them by phone when I was entertainment editor at the local daily newspaper. That was fun! THANKS AGAIN for a wonderful swap.
Response: I knew I went overboard, but I couldn't help myself and I'm glad I did! There were too many fun holidays. How cool that you got to interview the Monkee's! Thank you for rating and happy holidays to you! Thanks for joining!
Comment: Barbara, here was another gorgeously prepared parcel from you! I absolutely loved everything. I can't wait to make the lemon bread, and use the bubble bath (so kind of you to find my favorite brand!). A teacher also can never have too many paper clips, and these ones are adorable! Thanks again for being such an amazing monthly host and swap partner!! *hugs* Catherine
Response: I was so excited to find the bubble bath for you. I had never heard of it. I had to ask the clerk if they carried it because I couldn't find "Philosophy" on the bottles! I fell in love with the paper clips myself. Thanks for the rating and heart and I'm so glad you liked it all.
Comment: WOW! Barbara! I was amazed at such a huge box! I loved all the little pink boxes you wrapped everything in. I was so touched at the kind thoughts... I adore the monogrammed coaster, the adorable tins of homemade hot chocolate... and the creamers! So original! And of course the Land O Lakes and the book! You went above and WAY beyond! Thank you so much for being such a wonderful swap partner. *hugs* Catherine
Response: Thank you for rating me with a heart! The monogrammed thing is a cup cozy for your hot chocolate. Thanks for hosting this fun swap!
Comment: Absolutely adorable. Thank you so much. It spent quite a bit of time moving through the postal service and I'm SOOOO happy that it got here. It's going up into my craft room right now!
Response: I guess the duckies decided to swim the long way to you! Glad you liked the wreath! Your fav colors are blue and orange, the same as our Detroit Tigers baseball team, so it got my wheels going! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I wish I could give you more than one heart for this pkg. It is stunning and elegant! You went over and beyond and I love it! The pencils are so cool also! Thank you a million times over. The colors are great also.
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart. I'm so glad you liked it. I was hoping you'd like the earth tone colors I used.
Comment: Your awesomeness knows no bounds!! You totally made my day - I've had such a difficult week and your package made today a good day in a whole bunch of crappy ones! I can't begin to thank you for all the great things (though I am stuffing myself full of mixed nuts as I type) - I would give you a thousand hearts if I could!
Response: I'm glad I made your day! Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Wow - What a creative interpretation of Altered CD. I absolutely LOVE the Elvis Teddy Bear:-) and I put a magnet on the Chihauhau and put it on the Fridge. It is the exact same color as my Triscuit. Thank you so much. Extra hearts from the heart.
Response: Glad I took a good guess on the color of the Chihauhau! I'm so glad you liked them. I asked you so many questions about this swap because I had this all in mind. Glad I went with these ideas and that you liked them!
Comment: Thank you for the 70's theme items. I enjoyed seeing all the things. It brings back memories! I liked looking at the book. When I was a kid I thought, "When I grow up, I want to drive a VW Bug and be a cashier."
Response: I'm glad you finally got it! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: AWESOME Package! I can't believe all the effort and time you put into it! All the little tags and images on each item, so cute! Creative items too! Esp the hand decorated thrift store item- its a jewel, well, literally! Thank you so much for sending such a creative and thoughtful box!
Comment: WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe I am now the owner of such an amazing journal! :) Barbara, you really went above and beyond! The crocheted cover and little stuffie are so "me"!
The crochet lesson with step-by-step "visual aids" is BRILLIANT, I can't wait to try it!
The page of real troll dolls made me laugh out loud, and I'm just amazed at all the little booklets and printed goodies...you must have gone through at least two ink cartridges just printing out fabulous stuff for me! :) So many great ideas for crafting, cooking, and just plain being creative... I'm overwhelmed! Too much stuff to comment on here... I owe you a proper letter to truly thank you for how much work you put into this project!!! Thanks, Barbara!
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you liked it. I was so worried because I'm not into all the mixed media art, but I thoroughly went through your profile, and we like alot of the same things. Thank you for the 5 and heart!
Comment: i wish i could give you a million hearts. EVERYTHING is WONDERFUL!!!! My hubby has been wanting both of those type of things for awhile. This is the best swap i've gotten in a really long time...thank you.
Response: I am so glad you liked everything! I was very excited when I saw that fabric and hope you can use it in your quilt.

Response: I am so glad you liked it. Thanks for the rating and for hosting this swap!
Comment: Barbara, I was very surprised and delighted when I received your package. All I can say is WOW, you really are clever and creative. I love everything, every detail. The vegetable ribbon is adorable, and I have just started making myself eat a lot more vegetables so how perfect! I love the tea, I love the stationary, I love the buttons, this note can not say how much I love everything. Thank you so much. You are awesome!
Response: Thank you for the rating and I'm so glad you enjoyed the package. I love hosting this swap every month because it is a creative type of swap. Hope to see you in future swaps!
Comment: Thanks Barbara, some things that "we will definitely" make use of. The hubby doesn't eat chocolate, so I will have the chocolate flavored crayon cigarettes (they are so cute) mm, mm. Very nice package, what a neat idea on the crochet case and lighter holder key fob. I think I'll keep it and use as a holder for both my Blackberry and iPhone. I hate carrying one in hand and one on the belt.Thank you again.
Comment: This was an AMAZING box of goodies! They were all packaged so cute, and my daughter esp. loved the bunny bag! Those boxes were so fun, and I laughed when I saw the animal crackers and gummy bears and gummy dinosaurs in the animal themed boxes! I love the candy that you picked out! And I LOVED the candy craft ideas and plan to do that with my daughter, although I think she's going to want to eat most of the candy and glitter! You were so generous and I am just overwhelmed! I love the box, too, and plan to use it to keep craft patterns organized!!! Thank you so much for such a fun box!!!! I would give you tons of hearts if I could!!!
Response: I had alot of fun doing this. I spent alot of time in the store so I told the guy workng what I was doing!

The kitties have been batting their bonus toy around and attacked the envelope for good measure. I feel so special!! Thank you thank you thank you! :OD
Response: I took a chance on the punk skull and glad I did! Thanks for the prompt and great rating!
Comment: WOW!!! What an awesome package! So many nifty presents. They are all very creative and cool, but may favorite is, of course, the robot guy followed closely by the memo holder. Of course, I am redoing my craft room and the sun catchers is exactly the right colors to hang in the window! So I guess I can't really pick a favorite. Thank you for all the time and thought you put into you swap with me. Many hearts and hugs!!!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything. I am so indecisive at times that I can't just settle on the first thing I make. Thanks for the heart!

Response: I am so glad you liked these! I was hoping you could use the costume for your ponies. Happy Holidays!
Comment: Got my wonderful package today. I'm usually not home when the mail arrives but we were off school today for a snow day (actually ice day).

Thank you for hosting the swap and for all your gifts. Merry, merry...Teresa

Comment: Thank you for the incredible Lucky Parcel! It totally made my day and made me feel warm and cozy. My kids were laughing at me as I took each thing out of the package and said "ohhh, look at this!!!" Everything is perfect. You obviously read my profile because I love it all! Thanks so much! I'd give you six hearts if they'd let me!
Comment: I got your journal this morning and had quick "flick" through.. i laughed out loud at a lot of the instructions, as i had put very similar ones in my partner's journal. Very strange to see how similar people who have never met turn out to be :)
thank you for the marker pens, also.
Comment: Thankyou for the wonderful package I love the cookbook and the birthday bag of goodies
Response: Thanks for the good rating. I realized after I sent the package, that I forgot to label the birthday bag as Oct. 11-It's My Party day. Which also happens to be my birthday! Glad you liked it!
Comment: Okay, Barbara...you rock.

Comment: Thank you! I think Detroit has a bit of an image problem, like Pittsburgh (my city) once did. I've been there and enjoyed the area very much (Ferndale... I think). The brochure you made is quite professional! Love, love, love the list of MI attractions and oddities. The Taylor Conservatory would be my first stop in your town, which looks quite charming. Thank you very much for the tour!
Response: Yes, you're right about the image problem. I know where Ferndale is. Glad you enjoyed your tour.

Comment: What a complete package! Paper Project, Puzzle and Comics (I'm in love with Calvin and Hobbes). Of course I can barely cook, so the menu holder comes in handy. I'll listen to the CD tonight when I see what exactly glows in the dark!!!

Comment: Hello Barbara,
Wow! We have the same first names. I want to thank you for the beautiful box you sent me for the 14 Days of Valentines. I have been having so much fun finding the right bag to open for each day and then opening the bag to find some wonderful Valentine goodies. All of them so far are ones I can use personally or that I can use in swaps or other personal papercraft projects I work on. I think this may be our first swap together, welcome to my swapping family. I hope we have other opportunities to swap with one another. Until that happens, I hope you are experiencing wonderful swaps.
P.S. I have gotten through the first 9 days. Haven't opened Day 10 yet. I always open at night. You have been extremely generous and given things to me I will thoroughly enjoy, use, wear, eat etc. It has been great fun opening your packages. You did a wonderful job. Thank you for being so generous and for thinking of me
Response: Thank you for the rating and I'm so glad you like it all. This was a fun swap to put together!
I am so glad you are having fun! Thank you for taking the time to rate and comment, not only once, but twice! That means alot for you to comment again, when you didn't have to. I wish I would have written down the exact order of items you are opening, so I would know where you are at! I am glad to know that you have the will power like I do, to only open 1 day at a time. I wonder if everyone in this swap has! lol! Thanks! Barbara
Comment: WOW!!!! What an AMAZING package! I don't even know where to start! I absolutely LOVE everything and it is awesome that you catered it to so many of the things I like from my profile. I love the little containers you put everything in, especially the plastic one that snaps open to all the other compartments. And the coffee candies are delicious! I am eating one right now :) I just love all the miniature animals and everything else! I don't even know what to say!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I would give you a million hearts if I could! Getting this made my day! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Comment: Hey Barbara! I got my *KISS*ing ball yesterday! WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!! That was seriously the cutest thing I've seen in a long time - And the button one was so great too! A few of the kisses fell off in shipping, but I put them back and hung it in my doorway. Everyone is going to be jealous when they see it! Thanks again :) <3
Comment: Very Cute! Love the idea and my kids have already tried to steal it from me! It's sitting in the window in my sewing room. That way if I need to cry because a project I'm working on isn't cooperating I'll have a tissue handy! Thanks so much!!
Comment: what an awesome package of goodies!!! that ghost is so cute...and i love the ideas he "holds"!! i love everything so far and am going crazy trying to be good and only open one a day! lol!

Mom wants me to tell you thanks!
