Comment: Jennifer this was a great pc to send me. I had to read all the information which by the way some of it was in small detail! Haha! I loved all the facts about Austria which by the way I did not know some of these facts! LOVED IT and the background was very beautiful too! Yes this pc was perfect for me! THANK YOU!
Comment: Thank you for the Post Card. I love oriental brush painting. The tax deadline was the 18th and Houston, including the post offices, was closed on account of flooding. I hope the IRS is forgiving to all those who didn't make it on time.
Comment: Thank you for the cool Korea facts Postallove card, colorful washi (stars, Union Jack, and polka-dots are all three of my favorite things :), and Remy sticker! I always appreciate learning new things from postage or postcards. Happy Wednesday!

Comment: Hello Again, crochet junkie! Thanks for the cute snail coloring postcard. I've always loved to color in kids coloring books, but I've never colored this kind of picture. Such tiny sections, lol You do a great job.
Thanks again and take care, Judy
Comment: Whoa, Mama! You certainly outdid yourself with the washi. I have a few of the same ones, but two out of 55 isn't bad at all! thank you so much for the extras. I hope your partner is as generous as you!
Comment: Thank you for the stunning sunrise card and cheery polka-dotted washi, Jennifer! I also love Nutella :) You are so lucky to have a bevy of adorable cats! (When I live in a place that allows pets, I can't wait to have at least one dog and cat :)

Comment: Hey Jennifer! WOW your package really made my day! I am sorry I did not write what things I would like on my profile! I forgot, but I loved everything you sent, everything is so perfect. I adore the little chapstick holder! I really needed that! I do not know how to crochet so I am amazed by your beautiful work! Thank you for sending me so many great things!

I love them all, especially emoji, berries, little flowers, and nerdy apple :) I love meeting other "Weird Al" fans -- I look forward to seeing the new season of Comedy Bang Bang with him as bandleader! Happy week :)
Comment: You're sweet! Thank you for the Jane Russell card -- she was gorgeous! and I'm super jealous that you have a store by you that sells postcards. I have to go to Salt Lake for anything other than tourist cards.
Comment: Hello and thank you for my washi tapes!! Unfortunately I got your tapes and another user's mixed up so I'm not sure whether to thank you for the arrow tape or the storm trooper tape! Either way, thank you so much!!
Comment: Thank you, Jennifer, for the lovely coaster (?)/ dishcloth. I will put it to good use. I really enjoy using the items others have made. It makes me feel like I have friends from everywhere. Love the arch pc also. Thanks. It is one of my goals to actually visit it some day.
Response: I suppose you could use it as a coaster or maybe a hotpad, but I meant it to be a dish cloth. Lol
Comment: Thank goodness you added your username! I have all Jen's for this swap! I have a Jenny, and TWO Jennifer's! When does that EVER HAPPEN!!!!
I love the dirty piglet on this PC! Thanks for sending!
Comment: Thank you for the great JFK card (I love his quote about the importance of the arts!), adorable cat stickers (the baseball car looks like my own gray and white :), corn stamp, and message -- I look forward to visiting President Kennedy's Library one day and also hope that current and future politicians can regain a similar sense of integrity!
Comment: I love the cowl you made. I spend time making them for other people but nobody has ever made one for me. I love the pattern and the yarn. The color is perfect. Your work is beautiful!!! I can't wait to wear it! Thank you, thank you!!
Comment: Thanks for the Vision of Yesterday postcard. My dad actually has one of those plows on display in his building. He has a small farm and enjoys farm antiques. The weather here in Georgia is also crazy; but no snow!
Comment: Thanks for the great quote and the Art of China Card. I read a lot of historical fiction books and China is an area of particular interest! This will help me with visualization as I read my next book!
Comment: I struggled so bad with this one but I don't think you did at all - both are awesome! and of course you had to do one for thumb appreciation day - thanks for sharing - how cool! my daughter has a vision condition that is very rare, when she was first diagnosed it was 1 in every 30,000 people in the US had it (that was over 18 years ago) Thanks so much!!!!
Comment: Thank you for the coloring card, stamps, washi, and poinsettia stickers! I agree that home depends a lot on a feeling of unconditional love and freedom with those who mean a lot to you (and to whom you mean a lot).
Comment: Thank you so much for the washi tape! I don't have any of them, so they made me happy! What made me happier though, was the cute little baby in the baby chick costume in front of the card. I got out of work in a totally bad mood and that photo of the baby made my day better! Thank you again! Also, I almost forgot to mention, you are so awesome for sending extra floral stickers. That is very generous of you. I hope you have a great rest of your day!
Response: I'm glad the adorable baby made your day better! I was glad to pass along the stickers...I got several sheets given to me and I don't use them.
Comment: You deserve a MILLION Hearts for this swap!!!
Firstly - I was looking at your envelope, and noticing how pretty it is,
with such pretty corresponding washi tape. I was looking at the tapes longingly,
because I am pretty much out completely of deco tapes - Then - I open this swap - and - I see you Angeled the roll of washi tape that I was flaked on - You angel with 3 different, five feet - each! - rolls of washi!! Wow!! What a fabulous surprise! I can't believe it! That is So amazingly wonderful of you. You're a fabulous, wonderful, thoughtful, angel. Now I see what you were saying in the RAK thread! http://swap-bot.com/forums/topic/134177 - ha!! Thank you So Very Much - I love love love them! And - the swap itself - Wow! I Loveloveloveee the note cards! Could you find any better ones?? Nay! - I Lovelovelove that airplane/postal one and Lovelovelove that sophisticated wine one, and that little baby is sooo cute!! Oh my - This is a most awesomest swap, for sure - A Super duper swap you sent - I thank you So Very Much! I'm putting in a good word about you, to Santa! Again, thank you so so much - I'm very grateful for all this - Words just can't describe how wonderful this swap is, and, how happy you made me. Thank you. Happy day to you.
Response: Aww, I'm so glad I made your day! I actually have been lucky finding washi tape lately, which is why I have been sharing so much! And you are so very welcome!!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the hand-made Valentine! It is the perfect amount of inappropriate and completely unexpected with the handmade front - I'll be keeping my eye out for someone to give it to.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I expect the reaction of who receives it will be surprised...which is what I was going for. 😜
Comment: What a cute bag you sent me. I love it. Thank-you. I always need hot pads for my kitchen table. Your package arrived in a plastic bag from the Post office. Got ripped open somehow but both contents are in perfect condition. Thanks again for a fine swap. Have a great day.
Response: Well I'm glad you got everything! Thank you! Have a great day!
Comment: OMG, where do I start to thank you. First I get this envelope that is so cutely decorated with stickers and washi tape and then I open it to find a really cute crafty looking reusable bag that is going to my next crop with me and then an really cute acrylic stamp set falls out when I open my bag which I cannot wait to use, then an adorable crocheted lip balm pouch with a wild cherry Burts Bees lip balm included and to top it off a sweet card included. I love that you crocheted the lip balm pouch and absolutely love it and Burt Bee's is the type of lip balm I use. Thank you for making my day. I wish I could give you a bunch of hearts because you are a wonderful swap partner. You are the kind of swap partner that makes swapping so much fun. Hugs to you.
Response: I'm so glad I made your day! I love sending along extra stuff that makes my partners smile!!! I had trouble letting go of that Joanns shopping bag...I loved it! Lol tThank you for your kind words and kind rating!
Comment: OMG, I could not imagine having that many cats....I love them but I'm afraid they'd get on my nerves.
I would love to learn how to crochet it looks neat...I know a couple of people who do it but I haven't learned.
Love the postcard you used, it is a nice addition to my collection, thank you !!
Response: Nah, they don't get on my nerves...they are actually entertaining. The only time I am annoyed is when cleaning litter boxes because I have 5 of them and it's gross. Lol
Comment: Thank you for the great hat. I've often longed for something to keep my ears warm. I don't get much call for warm clothing in Houston, but my job requires a lot of travel. Having lived in the south all my life I've discovered I'm very susceptible to cold like a true hothouse flower.
Response: Lol I was just talking about this with my boss. I also deliver newspapers and unless it is bitterly cold or windy the cold doesn't affect me as much as most people. Lol
Comment: Hi Jennifer I loved your inchie. You are right - this could become addicting. This was my first inchie as well but I will be doing more of them. Thanks also for the little items to make more inchies. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: Thanks for all the washi! I'm so ready for Supernatural to be back as well! Just a few more days! Funny story, my boss told to to "carry on my wayward son" when I went to lunch last week and I just told him I was going to cry. He was so confused! lol. I would be up for a private swap of the Supernatural kind...not the 4th kind, that's the butt stuff. (sorry, couldn't help that). Just shoot me a PM and we can get it all figured out! :D
Response: EMPATHY, SAM, EMPATHY!!! Fight those fairies!!! Hehe
Thank you for the kind rating! It's always awesome to find another Winchester fan!
Comment: Hello Jennifer,
thank you for your selections of washi tape you sent me for this swap. you sent a nice variety of widths and designs. What is the teal? Thank you also for the die cut stickers you sent along with the tape. I look forward to using all you sent in future projects. Happy New Year!
Response: The teal was labeled as a tearable tape you can write on in the office tape section...wasn't labeled as washi. I'm glad you like what I sent! Happy New Year to you too!
Comment: Got this today! Had a little difficulty finding the swap because you didn't put the swap name on there and I'm in a few washi tape swaps but that's okay! Found you! My favorite is the mustache tape! I'm making a mustache pocket letter and I didn't have any to go with it-now I do! Also love the cat ATC. I've been looking at ATC swaps but been reluctant to join one because I've never made one but want to-don't want to dissapoint anyone. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm really sorry I forgot to put the swap name!!! That is very unlike me! I'm glad you liked what I sent though!!
Comment: And, the 1st one arrives! Your California relatives must have come from the City! I lived in St. Chas., Aurora, Naperville for 5 yrs. and definitely we don't have the corn and soybean growing here but much of Cali is rural, I have grown up raising ducks, chickens, rabbits, cows, horses, lots of horses and goats, pigs and all kinds of animals. Southern Cal is way different from Northern. Parts of Illinois and Missouri look a lot like much of California. My area, we don't have the snow though. Snow is about 4 hrs. away from me. Anyway, wishing you a short, late, mild Winter! = )
Comment: I LOVE the postcard to color!! Where did you get that? I would love to send some, amazing, thank you. : )
Response: I found them in two different areas...one was a book of postcards to color I found at Joann Fabrics. The others were included as an extra in a package of coloring books also from Joann Fabrics. I'm not sure which one you got. Lol the book of postcards was called Secret Garden...you might google it. There are several coloring books in this series so be sure to google Secret Garden Postcards. Good luck!!
Comment: :-(. I'll be happy to change this when i receive the fingerless gloves ... Or the crocheted calvin and hobbes ... (or anything, really, as our swap description was deliberately vague and it was just a box full of stuff i sent to you, looking to "rehome")... Original swap Date July 2014. .. Update 12/30/15 Thank you for the fun box full of wrapped items! You really could have just sent any one of these things. I really like the journal... And the acorn chain piece... But my special favorite is probably the raggedy ann notecards. You couldn't know because it isn't on my profile but I love raggedy ann! And one of those pictures really touched a nostalgic nerve. Very sweet. Thank you. I went back and forth about a three (which is probably the "proper" rating) and a five... But I decided a five because regardless of the year gap, the swap was fullfilled, and a heart because of the way the raggedy ann picture made me feel. :-)
Response: 12-28-15 I am so sorry for how long it has taken me to send this to you. It has finally been sent. Tracking info: 9505 5137 0581 5362 1331 07 expected delivery 12-30-15.
Thank you very much. I really appreciate the kind rating and I'm glad I was able to make you feel special.
Comment: Hiya Jennifer! I loved the card, the quotes and the samples of washi tape. I cheated and I read the quotes... my favorite one was: "The human spirit is stronger than anything that happens to it". Thanks!
Response: I find that I end up with so many favorite quotes it's hard to narrow it down to just 1! Thank you for the kind rating!
Comment: What a fun package to open! Thanks so much for the varity of embellishments and goodies! Love the "hurry up and relax" card too (I am a fan of Mary Engelbreit for sure)! And WHERE did you find Alice In Wonderland Tea???!! So cool! Thanks for making my Merry Un-Birthday a delight!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it all! I received some Alice in Wonderland Tea in other swaps and decided to share! :) Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: Thankyou for the fabric scraps!!! Can't ever get enough:) Love the sunflower card too!!!
Response: Thank you for the kind rating! I was glad to pass along some scraps. I have sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many! I saw you are doing a postage stamp quilt, so I thought what I sent would be plenty for that quilt! If you ever want to do a private swap, I could fill a medium flat rate box with just scraps! LOL
Comment: Thank you for the lovely quotes. Because I really need a little extra happiness this week I quickly read them all. Several were amazingly appropriate for right now. I will enjoy pulling them out of my happiness jar and contemplating each of them further. Thank you for such thoughtful choices. <3<3<3
Response: You are very welcome! I needed extra encouragement this week as well, so I completely understand! Thank you for my 700th 5! :)
Comment: Great job on everything. Thanks for all the extras.
Did you hand or machine stich the mini quilts?
Response: Thanks! They were machine stitched but hand quilted. Also the binding was done on the keychain by hand. That was tough! lol The magnet was done spur of the moment. I had never done a log cabin block before trying that. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out! lol
Comment: I received your big 'ol envie of stamps today! Looks like a fun selection. I will enjoy studying them in detail this weekend. Thanks for the swap! <3<3<3 PS I loved the fact that you used a ton of vintage stamps to mail this but a silly postal worker cancelled them all with big grease pencils X's! :(
Response: I'm glad you liked it all! THAT STINKS THAT THEY DID THAT!
Comment: Thank you! I love the mustache on a stick, and it was so sweet of you to add in that string. I love string. I do wish I had more crochet knowledge so that I knew how to make the thing in the pattern, but maybe someday! (:
Response: I figured you'd love the mustache on a stick! I painted that myself, so I am especially proud of my paint job. lol Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: Thanks for the yarn ~ I love the colors! And the bat stickers will be fun to use for Halloween. Its good to be receiving from you again, its been a long time! *********Its good to see you back here!
Comment: Awww! The little owl is so sweet and I love the colorful yarn that you used. You definately earned your heart. And I must say you also earned a heart before I even opened the package--that was the best packaging I think I've ever received. It made me grin. Thank you!
Response: It was the first time I ever made such a small ami, so i am pretty happy with it! I'm glad the packaging made you smile. I got a tickle out of using it. :)
Comment: Oh, you are amazing! Every little think is just wonderful. I will definitely use the face scrub and the dishcloth. And the yarn is fabulous. I'll get to work on that when things slow down after school starts. Thank you SOOOOO much.
Response: You are so welcome! Thank you for such a kind rating! I'm glad you liked everything I sent! :)
Comment: sorry my list was hard for you-thanks for the coupons
Response: Not hard necessarily...just most of my coupons fell in the "do not send" category. LOL I hope you can use what I did find to send you! :) I understand not being able to use certain coupons you receive. Sometimes I receive ones where I haven't even heard of the brand! LOL
Comment: Wowza! It was so exciting to get so many coupons at one time! How many papers do you get a week? I loved the multiples. Some great coupons in there and I usually know all of the different denominations that are out but I didn't even know about some that you sent. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE SWAP! I hope to do one again! I hope you enjoy yours :)
Response: Thank you! I had gotten many of those from someone I swapped with. I only get three papers a week, so I normally wouldn't ever have that many of one coupon. I hope you enjoy them!
Response: Thanks. The turquoise one is a wool, I don't know if I mentioned that in the note or not. The extra skein of yarn is just an acrylic that is terrific for hats, scarves, etc. I had hoped you would enjoy my ball as it was the first one I ever made.
Comment: Let's all sing along to the Schlong Song! What a great pecker you have here. The glitter came off the stickers (very cheeky btw) and now it's got a whole disco feel to it - teehee. I shall leave it lying around and observe the reactions it stirs up ;p
Response: I'm so glad you enjoy it!!! Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: OK....AWESOME pkg!!!!!!! I LOVE everything you sent...right down to the bracelet...my daughter was home from college tonight and she is totally addicted to sugar, so she got the bracelet and is thrilled. We both ooohed and aahed over the dish cloth and the stamps are so geat! Love the little bag and the envies too! All toghether super swap...Thank you so much!!!!! 20 Hearts for you ^_^
Response: Aww, thank you! I'm glad you liked everything I sent! I saw that bracelet and I thought...what female doesn't love sugar? LOL Thanks so much for the kind rating and again I'm glad you liked everything!!! ♥
Comment: Squished and stuffed to the gills! I LOVED this package. I can't wait to send my Dad the neck things. They are awesome. Kisses to your Mom! I put the magnets on my fridge. You are so talented. Thank you so very much! HUGS!
Response: You are so very welcome! I am glad you enjoyed everything! Yeah, it was kind of squished, but I knew it would make you happy anyway! :) Thanks for the kind rating!!! I'd love to swap with you again anytime!
Comment: Thank you so much Jennifer for offering to make my guy an olive green scarf. This is so professional looking - Very handsome!!! I know my man is going to L.O.V..E IT! Your a sweetie, let me know if you ever want to do another swap. YOUR AMAZING!
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I hope he does too! It was the very first one I have made so long. My husband loved it. I used two strands of yarn crocheted together to make it extra thick. If you need any other goodies crocheted, just let me know! :) ♥
Comment: I'm speechless. This is hands down the best swap I've gotten on SB! What an amazing journal! It was so entertaining going thru each page and all the goodies you packed into it. I LOVE quotes so it was so freakin awesome to get an envie FULL of them! I can't wait to get started in the mini moleskin full of fun journal prompts. The hand painted pages are gorgeous! The short story was amazing! I had to share this with my son. He had just as much fun going thru it as I did. i would absolutely LOVE to swap again with you but I doubt I could ever create a journal as wonderful as what you sent me. I'd love to try tho! Just so I can get another one of these from you ;) Amazing! 100 million hearts for you!!
Response: Awww, thanks! I'm so glad you loved it! I love creating anything goes journals like that. It really piques my inspiration! I'd love to do a private swap with you for something like this! It's just so much fun to have complete freedom! Sometimes the writing only journals can get a bit dull for my tastes. LOL
Comment: very cool quote book, i love it..even more so that now i have a quote book that i can add to and carry with me, i am always collecting quotes..thanks again
ps....working on your dark journal :)
Response: I am always collecting quotes too! Great minds think alike I do believe! ;)
Comment: Post card arrived today . I wonder where it went in the last 9 days. I hope it had a nice journey. Thank you.
Response: I once received a package I bought on ebay three weeks after she sent it (with a postmark even showing the date she sent!)...and she was only a couple states away. With the USPS you never freaking know!
Comment: ♥Thanks SO much♥ for the WONDERFUL journal and the MANY extras you sent. They are such creative ideas and I especially liked all the different types of papers you used for the different prompts. AND finally, thank you immensely for your patience and understanding. Anyone would be lucky to have you as a partner. ♥
Response: Thank you so much for the kind rating! I'm glad you enjoyed what I sent you! I'm glad we could get it straightened out. I hate to have a disappointed partner, so I was glad to send the extras!
Comment: What a great idea the vintage sheet music, it will come to good use. You are awsome!!!!
Response: lol thank you so much! that is what I had left after receiving a huge box full of old vintage sheet music. it's beautifully antiqued around the edges and is interesting in my opinion! Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: thanks so much for the lovely vintage
music sheet postcard ... i wonder if
the lyric-cist would be pleased with
the 'garden' of tomorrow that is modern
life (& music!) today?!?
the stamps are soooo fine > much appreciated!
Comment: Wow, your journal is gorgeous, and your artwork is beautiful! Thank you so much for making this for me :) And the panda bear postcards are too cute! I agree with you, fall is my favourite season as well :) I hate the warm weather! Your father will be in our prayers. Thanks again!
Response: I'm glad you liked my journal. it was the first time for me doing a quick turn around, so I tried to make it as well as I could. Thank you for the prayers for my father.
Comment: what a neat pattern of triangles & other linear shapes: i like it!
i might be taking up that preoccupation if my hands don't learn how to manipulate
the crochet yarn, hehe.
thanks much for the artistic sample!!
Comment: Wow! What a great surprise your effort was! I loved your envelope, your book idea and your open comments. But some made me cry. Wish I could give you 100 hearts!!! My prayers are with you, your Dad and your family. Hugs and thanks....Dee
Response: Thank you very much for the kind rating! I tried to make this up to be more fun then just a boring old list. LOL My intention was not to make you cry with any of my entries. I was just being open and honest. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks!
Comment: Camping is great! I just got back from a camping trip with my BF.Camping with my Daddy was the best part of summer when I was growing up... My father has leukemia (but has been kicking its butt for the better part of 10 years. ) but I can only imagine how much that camping trip means to you. I'm very glad you got to go on your camping trip with your father.
Comment: I received you box today. Thank you so much for everything!! I'm having so much fun looking and sorting it. I have several projects in mind already for the beads... it must have taken you quite some time to put it all together. Thank you for your generousity and variety. Best wishes, Denise
Response: Thanks so much for the kind rating! I was concerned about you liking what i sent, so the fact that you love it...makes me smile! Have fun!
Sorry to hear about your Father. I have never heard of the green ribbon for Kidney Cancer, but will educate people about it now. And of course I will be your swapping buddy.
Comment: thank you ever so much for the great
postcard from tauranga, n.z. - i do hope
to be able to visit that wondrous country!
i am actually contemplating learning
crochet, believe it or not ;)
Response: Crocheting is so fun and so relaxing. Plus it's a great feeling when you can give something to someone that you have made! If you need any pointers, just le me know! Thanks!
Comment: Thank you for this lovely swap package. I'm SO excited to give Haven these cat toys, he always gets so excited for new ones. He tends to lose his mice very quickly, I have a feeling when we move the couches, we are going to find about 20. So these toys are much needed, and will be appreciated. Also, the Swap-Bot postcard is adorable, I love it
Response: Thanks for the kind rating. I hope Haven loves those treats as well! I know when we move our couch we always find ten or so of his cat toys. What does he do? Within an hour he has batted them all back under there and he's trying to reach them. LOL That was my last SB postcard. I love those things!
Comment: I am so sorry. I thought I had rated you. I use the holder constantly and enjoy it so much. Thank you
Response: Wow! That is an old swap! But thank you for rating me! I never noticed...that was back before I kept tracking of ratings. Thanks for the heart and I"m glad you use yours so often! I use mine that i received all the time as well!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely scarf and hat. Even though I had to wait :) I appreciate that you kept me up to date with what was going on. That is why the rating of 5. Also that was very sweet of you to angel one of my flaked swaps. Thank you
Response: Thank you very much for the kind rating! I really appreciate it! I have kind of gotten into a kick of making table runners and saw that on your profile so I decided to go for it. I hope it matches your kitchen. I wasn't sure on the shade of blue, so I didn't want to include a blue that wasn't the right color. Thanks again for the kind rating!
Comment: Thank you for my box of handmade goodies! You have truly spoiled me. I love the colors you chose, and I am grateful for the attention to detail that clearly shows my package. My new altar cloth still has me floored, I would have never guessed that it was your first. You are the first person to make me something specific to my spiritual beliefs, and I am very grateful. I did have to barter with Victoria, I get to use the cloth for now and she is using the potholder & coasters. ;) Thank you for sharing your talents with me! What a treat!

Comment: wow wow wow! What a great gift! Thankyou so much for your swap. It was easy to see that you put a lot of thought and care into making this swap and I can't thank you enough! I especially loved the needle book and the way all the gifts were wrapped in fabric.
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!! Thanks for the kind rating!! I like using fabric instead of tissue paper or wrapping paper because you can always use fabric!! :)
Comment: Thankyou SOOOO MUCH for the wonderful box of fabic and extra goodies!!! Oh my.....I absolutely LOVE the partial quilt top you sent!!! Now I know what my first quilt project is going to be....to figure out sizes and all I need to do to complete this quilt:))) Gosh....you sent SOOOO MANY GOODIES!!!

Response: Awww thank you hon! I'm glad you enjoyed everything! I was so glad to pass along all those items...esp to someone I know would enjoy them! I hope the fabric is okay...whats funny is when i filled up the box I put all I had in my scrap box and now I have more! LOL Maybe we can make this a swap we do a couple times a year. LOL Thanks for the kind rating honey!
Comment: All I can say is Wow! You went above & beyond, Fragile labels for my packages I mail out, bookmark, & a Trading Card with a piece of Robin Williams shirt from the movie "The Birdcage". Just Wow!
Response: Thanks for the kind rating! I'm glad you enjoyed what I sent! I thought that trading card was just neat!
Comment: I love that you repurposed a hand-knit wristband for the strap of the pincushion! I also love the top you made! wonderful handstitching- love the colors! And I really like the protective insert to keep the pins from poking through. I wish I'd thought of that...
Response: You are more then welcome! i was a bit upset about having to part with that particiular piece...I loved it so much myself. It turned out much better then I had hoped! I stole the idea of the protective insert from looking up different wrist band pin cushion patterns. I love this and I'm glad you did too!! Thanks for the kind rating as well!
Comment: I love my quilt square and thanks for the floss. My oldest twin got all happy when I pulled the floss out and was circling it in the air. lol She's been into making friendship bracelets. So you put a smile on both of our faces thanks!
Response: lol I'm glad I could make you ladies smile! Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: I love the versatility of the fabric you chose for me and look forward to using it soon. Thanks for the needle threaders; amazingly enough,, I don't have a single one in my house. How did you know? :)
Response: lol I guess I'm psychic. LOl I'm glad you liked everything I sent. thanks for the great rating!!
Comment: UNreal how much you got in this bottle! MY score!
Thank you so much foreverything. I've never seen a needle book and it sure will come in useful.
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked everything I sent! I tried to cram it as full as I could. I liked the idea of cutting the side open to fill it. You can get bigger items in that way. Thanks for the compliments. I'm glad you liked everything and thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: Thanks for the great fabrics. They are lovely and they really deserve a heart. Unfortunately, something is wrong and my computer won't let me check the heart box. I would if I could. Thanks again.
Response: Thank you! For some reason I have found if you go back in to rate, you can unclick the 5 and click it again and it will allow the heart option to pop up. Thanks for the kind words tho!
Comment: Thank you for the fantastic quilt piece. I've never attempted such an intricate design - you made a great job of it. The fabric colours are lovely and the animals are so cute! Thank you for the generous extra too. Fantastic swap!
Response: Thanks! I am a beginner, can you believe it? I loved making it and you are moer then welcome for the extras. Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Jennifer, I love my quilt block. I am trying to figure out how you make that pattern! I just love it, it's so beautiful and I'm going to enjoy using it in a quilt. Thanks so much and for the fabulous extra fabric as well. It's gorgeous.
Response: You are very welcome!!! I had fun making it! Thank you for the great rating!
Comment: Hi Jennifer, thank you for the lovely Morsbag! I went and did the research as I'd never heard of it before. You do excellent work and I really liked your fabric selections. Thank you for the extra FQ too, maybe I'll have a chance to use it in a bag soon!
Response: You are so welcome! I had a lot of trouble letting go of that morsebag!!! i loved it and loved making it for you!!
Comment: thanks for the zippered pouch and the potholder. I just started doing potholders too! The binding is a pain, isn't it? But worth it! ;-)
Response: You are very welcome! Yes the binding is a huge pain, but it has to be done! I just finished a quilt with binding i made myself. I think I burned my fingerprints off. LOL that fabric gets hot!! lol I'm glad you liked everything!
Comment: Jennifer, thank you so much for your wonderful package! I was having a really crappy morning and it definitely brought a huge smile to my face. I really enjoy the lovely pink nail polishes! :)
Comment: Thanks for the book. I haven't read it, so that is good. I look forward to it. PS I have your ready to go, but didn't get to the post office today in time. So will be in the mail on Monday for you. Cheers.:) Oh, and thanks for the pretty bookmark as well. :)
Response: I'm glad it's one you didn't read yet! It' always better to receive books you have never read instead of duplicates you have. lol
Comment: Four doodled ATCs - Thanks. UPDATE: Whoa.. I never said that I didn't like them. I said that I received four doodled ATCs and I thanked you for them. SECOND UPDATE - LOL - What a treat. Thanks Jennifer.
Response: I'm sorry if you are not happy with what I sent. I take pride in my ATCs and since I sent more then the required item I thought you would enjoy them.
UPDATE: Okay, thank you then. SECOND UPDATE: I have no idea why I sent you two packages for the same swap, but I am glad you liked everything! lol
Comment: Thankyou SOOOO much for my parcel of goodies! I love the yarn.........the colours are perfect for me & thankyou for the 100% cotton yarn! Also, thankyou for the aida fabric......fantastic!
Thanks for being an awesome partner xx
Response: I'm glad you liked everything! i saw on your profile that you can't get colory cotton yarn and I have a ton of it, so I thought I'd share! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Love the extra bits, Jennifer. All the FQs you chose will make great "blenders." Thanks so much.
Response: You are very welcome! You didn't list any color besides the golden yellow as a color preference and you didn't have anything on your profile about colors so I was taking a stab i the dark. But I figured you could always use FQ's!! I'm glad you liked everything and it got to you in a timely manner! Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: WOW!!! I absolutely loved my package! You did such a great job on the jar and contents. How did you know that I needed some green fabric?? It was so bizarre when I opened it and found the two fat quarters because I was just making my list for the fabric shop and the green was on it! thank you so much for a thoughtful package!! Hugs, Mary
Response: That is funny! I just decided to add some fabric because you say on your profile you like to receive it. I'm glad you liked everything I sent! I had that jar filled up for a while before sending it, I just went thru all my supplies and added any and everything that was pink and brown. I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: Thank you very much! but it wasn't my size. They seem too big (well, maybe I should try them on) :(((( anyway, thanks!!! thanks!!!! I loved he cards too!
Response: oh man! I am so sorry! This was the first time I did a swap like this and I wasn't sure how to go about it. You might try them on or you might try washing them in some hot water so they will shrink up a bit. I'm so sorry!!
Comment: Thankyou so much, My son had a great time opening all the small wrapped gifts.. It felt like christmas! I loved everything especially the little dottee doll! Thanks again!
Response: I'm glad you liked it all! I had fun coming up with everything! It's always fun for you to watch a small one open gifts, I know I love to watch their faces too. LOL Thanks for the kind rating!!
Comment: I wish I could give you 10 hearts....I know even though this wasn't a profile based swap, I feel like it ended up being that way haha, so many of the items you sent me i needed! Like the gluestick, &altered text pages, and the brads, and the gems, and the binder notebook ... I had so much fun opening it ! Thanks so much =]
Response: You are so welcome! I was worried about it being late so I decided to send as a flat rate. The stuff that was around the already box packaged was stuff I tried to match to your profile. I know it's a lot more fun to get stuff you will actually use, even if the swap is for "your trash, my treasure". LOL
Comment: thank you You did a job for it being your frist knit dishcloth . I need to learn to knit
Response: You are welcome. I had knitted a couple scarves before doing the dishcloth, so i was decently comfortable knitting. I had just never used cotton. I love cotton for crocheting, so I thought it would be fun for knitting too. I am glad you enjoyed what I sent!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the FQ. It so goes with another piece I received in this swap that will make a great bag! Cheers!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was hard to part with it as orange is one of my favorite colors. I love the look of it and I'm thinking I might make a quilted project bag for myself with all the fabric I get from this swap. Thanks for the kind rating!!
Comment: Cool. I have not watched the show but I love books about TV. The bookmark you made was adorable!
Response: Wow I can't believe you got it so fast!! I am glad you liked everything! I loved the book, but then I love all kinds of true crime books! I love making bookmarks, so if you need/want anymore, hit me up!!
Comment: Received the stamps, I had a good time digging through and seeing what I got!! Can't wait to use them in future projects. Thanks for doing this swap with me!! xoxo
Response: You are more then welcome. I look forward to getting what you sent! I had fun digging thru my stamps to pick out for you. I thought some international ones would be neat to use too. I still have probably 800 stamps that I have collected. Any time I get any international or different usa ones, they go in a basket to "dip in water" later. Stamps have always been a passion of mine. If you ever want to swap again, let me know!!
I love The Shoe BOX.....HAHAHAH
I never knew you could send stuff in a Shoe Box...
Also I loved the Necklace so Pretty
and me and my BF were laughing at the Walmart bag....CAuse we talking about how we needed a Reusable Bag cause the plastic ones pile up like crazy
Response: You are so welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed everything!!
Comment: Hi, thanks so much for the presents and card! The wee lightbulb guy was so cute! And yay for red lipstick...I'm gonna try wearing it one of these days! Thanks so much :)
Response: You are more then welcome! Red lipstick can be alot of fun to wear! I wear it every once in a while. It may not be the right shade, but then you can always get more colors!! I'm glad you enjoyed everything!
Comment: loved the Pic. I had 21 brownies last year. this year we are on break, then we will start up as Juniors. Its fun i have done it for 5 years now.. thanks for the card it was cute. kinda a post card type..
Response: I thought the card were different. I like to do things differently sometimes! LOL Wow, 21. That's a nice size troop! HOpe you have lots of help! I'm glad you liked!
Comment: Thanks for the very cute matchbox drawers! I love them, you did a great job. :) I like all the extra goodies too!
Response: Thank you! It was the first set of drawers I had made. I wasn't sure if I was doing it right or not! LOL I'm glad you liked the goodies. I always like to include some extra goodies!!
Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for such an awesome swap! I absolutely love & appreciate every single item, even the wrapping paper & ribbons you used, lol!! 100 hearts to you!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything. I tried to do things you would like according to your want list as well as your profile. I always try to be very generous because I know it's fun to get extras! I am glad you like everything! Thank you!!
Comment: Really loved the design of your matchbox! very cool! thanks so much - love the goodies! :D happy thanksgiving to you too! thanks again!
Response: You are more then welcome! I have had that corn charm for a while and had no idea what I would do with it. It came in perfectly handy for this matchbox! Thank you for your kind words and you are welcome!!
Comment: Love all of the polka dots, especially the brown and blue. Oh and the hearts and the neat silver fades to black... I can tell you took a look at my profile and tried to personalize the swap. Much appreciated. Its not letting me give hearts tonight, but I will if and when I'm able to.
Comment: Thanks so much for the two cheerful dishcloths! Orange is my favorite color. And I love the Tupperware gadgets!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed! I loved doing it. I am definately going to go for a second round with that! I sent extras because I know it's always fun to receive extra goodies! I'm glad you liked it all! Enjoy!!
Comment: You weren't kidding about the tape - I almost couldn't get the package open (lol). Great wrapping skills especially the label. Thanks for all the great skull stuff. I've already switched out a halloween bookmark with the skull one you made and the vampire skull pez has a good view in my craft room. I like the skeleton musician fabric on the dotee doll (?) and the skull bag and keyring and lets not forget the loud and proud earrings. Even the box will come in handy, I've been doing lots of ATCs swaps and it will be a home for the ones I've received.
Response: Sorry about the tape (again)! I didn't want the paper to get ripped in transit. That is kinda the way we wrap Christmas at my house...my sister loves to wrap boxes around and around and around with box tape. She's evil with it. LOL I thought those earrings were just too cute! I couldn't not get them!! Yep that skeletelon musician fabric is a dotee. I didn't name him, I thought you might like to do that! LOl Anyway, I"m glad you liked everything! It was fun to come up with different ideas for skully items. Enjoy!!
Comment: What a fun package! It was so packed with great stuff. I love it all. Thanks, Mona
PS-I love Spiderella, she is the bomb!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything!! Spiderella is the 3rd one I made. I loved making her! I'm also glad the package made it to you so quickly!! Thanks for the aweseome rating even tho it was a bit late!
Comment: thank you for the paper , and all the extras , they will be used !!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything!! I always try to include stuff that I myself would like to receive. Because of this it's always so hard for me to "tear myself away" from all my great scraps. Happy Crafting!!
Comment: Absolutely loved your great assortment of scraps, tags, stickers and extras. They are all new colors and shapes I haven't seen before and will come in handy for many of my projects. Thanks so much for everything and your nice note, too! I guess I sent you a Halloween postcard, too, so it was nice having you as a partner. Enjoy!!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything! I tried to include a little bit of everything!! Many of us tend to be in the same swaps...lol so that means we end up being each others' partners. That's okay by me! I hpe you like everything!!
Comment: What a great package of goodies! I loved the combination of hand-made and other. My granddaughters are enjoying the stickers, and I get to have fun with the other items. You can be my partner anytime! Thanks so much.
