Comment: Awesome Christmas card! Thanks so much. I love the little card with all your info! What a great idea! I love geocaching but haven't been out in a while! I need to do that! Love tea- green tea, mostly and Davids. I can't knit, although I did make a crocked scarf once. Hugs to you and Merry Christmas
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, tea and the new coaster to my collection. My favourites (yarn) are also fingering and super bulky. Lately I've been doing a lot of bulky scarves. Oh, and I also like to geocache!
Comment: Your lovely envelope arrived here in Austria and it is just fabulous! I love everything you sent, but especially the quote in your note. Thank you very much for a great swap and sorry about the late rating. Have a great month July :)
Response: I am so GLAD it got to you safely!! :) I was afraid for a little while, with the mail laws being what they are down under. But I am so happy you love everything!
Comment: Thanks for holding a newbie pocket letter swap so I can make & receive my first ones. I've very happy & am in love with with everything about it & all the consideration for the things I love & don't like (listed in in my profile. Also thanks for all the stickers & for the envelope decorations, I can go on & on !!
Response: You are so very welcome!! I didn't host the swap, but I am glad that someone did! :)
Comment: This is a great quote! Especially since I could probably get my husband to do anything by bribing him with food!
Response: I am glad you like the quote! I went onto pinterest for inspiration, but this quote popped into my head weeks before I committed to signing up. PLUS it wasn't on pinterest, so I gave myself points for creativity :)
Comment: Heart comes to you as tears are still flowing down my cheeks. Not sadness though. The card was inspiring and the poem was amazing. The Tea O MY Mint chocolate tea I never knew it existed. Yes, I will try it Tonight. Thank you as well for your loving and Kind words inside the Card as well. XO HUGS again thanks you so Much!
Response: I am so happy that you loved the card! :) I made it myself ^^ To know how much it moved you makes my heart glad. Thank you so much for the ♥ rating! xox
Comment: Thanks for the lovely notecard/letter and teas. I'm looking forward to finding out how the Irish breakfast tea differs to English breakfast tea. One of my favourite every day teas is an Irish brand 'Barrys'. You can only buy it in import stores, but I got a taste for it when I lived in Dublin. I'll write back soon and thanks for re-sending!
Response: Not a problem! I am just happy that this one made its way to you safely :)
Comment: This will be a challenge.Usually round robins are sampler size (8x11) but I like your idea. WE willmake rthis work and your project will be beautiful , I'm sure. I would love to see end project.
Response: OMG I never knew that! Otherwise I would have sent something bigger. Now, I just feel silly. Would you like me to send you something bigger?? Oh Lord..
Comment: Thanks for your kind words. I feel like my life is so empty now but I am slowly trying to adjust. The pain is still there and tears have not stopped falling! Your kind words meant a lot to me. Thanks again!
Response: You are very welcome. I have not lost a parent, but in the last 14 months I have lost all 3 of my remaining Grandparents, so I know what loss feels like. My heart goes out to you my friend. ♥
Comment: Thank you! I am excited to try the blueberry tea. I really love blueberries. Thank you also for the extras. My daughter will love the bear postcard & stickers.The quote on the card is awesome & it is such a pretty card! :)
Response: I am so so so happy this made it to you and that you loved it! I saw the PC on my way home from work one day, and thought of your daughter ^^ Thanks for the ♥
Comment: Hi Rachel!
I finally found this swap..I am more than a little embarrassed about this... We were doing front yard landscaping this fall and have a temporary mailbox (constructed by yours truly...so not fantastic...) and this slipped behind the plastic liner and I was rooting around in the snowy dark this afternoon and felt something!! Yay! Sorry to keep you waiting on this rating, but as a silver lining it was awful and blustery and cold outside today so perfect for tea!!
Response: Glad that you liked and finally found it :) Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for your lovely story on meeting your Hubby. So romantic, with tea! I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon recently. I'm looking forward to drinking tea from what was sent :) I have the same address label with the tea pot.
Response: You are very welcome! :)
Our honeymoon was amazing! We had so much fun, just hanging out with eachother, best friends and lovers for life.
Comment: I went temporarily blind while reading your postcard. I could NOT see the name of the swap. FINALLY I figured out that your fun dot writing wasn't part of the pre-printed card. It looked so good, it just became part of the commercially printed postcard I ignored while looking for the HANDwriting. It was a weird optical illusion and it was kinda neat. (I bet that's not what you expected to hear about your card, but I really enjoyed it.)
Response: LOL!.. you are honestly not the first person to tell/ask me if my writing was printed by computer or done by hand. :) Text has always been my thing ^^ I used to teach scrapbooking classes and font was one of the units! Thanks again for the rating! XD
Comment: Wow! This couldn't have come at a better time, I had a sleepless night, and it's a rainy day...that's my perfect recipe for a trip to Starbucks! Thank you so much for the swap, it touched my heart!
Response: That makes me so glad to know you loved it. I do my best to touch hearts through the mail :) thanks for your kind words.
Comment: hi rachel-
thanks for your A to Z movie list! loved the glitter stickers and LOVED your address stamp with the tardis on it! thanks for joining my swap :)
Response: Hehe! I am glad that you liked everything, including my address stamp! Its the one we used for our wedding thank you cards, because our wedding was particially a DR.Who Theme! We had a Tardis as part of the cake topper and everything, plus the cake was BLUE velvet ^^
Comment: What an awesome board! I loved it and pinned several of your pins to my own board. Take care and happy swapping!
Please forgive the late rating....
Response: Thank you for the rating. But I need to express that you need to rate alot sooner, especially for email swaps? I am not sure why it took a month and a bit, as you were online almost each day during that time, and yet I never got a response to any of my messages? You need to be willing to communicate and rate on time, and you won't have anyone else upset.
However, Thank you for the ♥, I worked hard on my Disney board.
Comment: So many pins! I love it! Thank you, I really enjoyed exploring all of the pins you sent. :)
Response: You are very welcome! Disney has always had a very special place in my heart, family ties. :) Happy you loved it! Also, thank you very much for being the only person for this swap to actually give me a rating.
Comment: Thanks for this special recipe....sounds yummy! I normally don't purchase ham but I do bacon. I wonder if it would taste as good with bacon....
Response: I have never tried it with Bacon. The only thing that I could forsee going wrong with it though is the high fat content and that the pieces aren't very big. I would cook the bacon first before putting it in with the bread and cheese. If you do it let me know how it turned out :)
Comment: *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧Oww, that does look like a delicious Christmas tradition! Might have to bring it up for this years one (●´ω｀●) Our tradion is to make rum balls, but a savory thing would be a nice new editionon. Thanks for the recipe! And happy cooking *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧
Response: You are very welcome! You will have to let me know how you like it :) Its a great dish for breakfast dinner or even for a potluck :) We have it quite often! Enjoy and thanks for the ♥
Comment: Thank you for sharing your great list of movies. It's a great way to see other ideas as to what movie to watch next. You have quite the variety of movie types too. I enjoy watching all kinds of genre.
Response: Thank you! I try my best to have a variety, never want to let anything get boring :) Thx for the ♥
Comment: I got your card today - thanks so much. I love the papers and have a friend who REALLY likes birds so I will wait until she needs a pick me up and send it her way UNLESS I decide to keep it for myself. Thanks again!
Response: Wonderful! I am so glad that you liked the card :) The papers were just so pretty, and flowed together so nicely, I had to keep them together :) ta ta!
Comment: I received your envelope today but unfortunately it came without the tea in a special post bag for damaged packages. It seems to have gotten wet on the way because what is left of the card is in a sad state.. So unfortunate as I see this would have been a great selection of teas.. Thank you for sending it out nevertheless and I figured a 5 is in order as we cannot be held responsible for the trip our envies have to endure once we drop them to that post box. :)
Response: Oh NO! Oh Inga, I am SO sorry that you couldn't enjoy your package! :( Thankyou also so very much for understanding...alot of people would have just rated down and be done with it. You have my gratitude and respect :) Thanks so much.
Comment: I love your tea memory - how wonderful is that! I loved reading about your romance blossosming around tea! Hee hee. And what a beautiful card you made that I can use! I just adore tea-themed cards! The teas look yummy have wrappers that will be great for future crafting :) Hope you have many more wonderful tea memories! Thank you!! (sorry the ratings a little late!)
Comment: Today I was stuck on a train that had to be diverted due to line failure and what is usually a 45 min journey turned into a 3 hour one- so today was a super awesome day to return home and find some lovely tea! :D A pot for me and my Mama was brewed immediately, its gorgeous- awesome choice! Blueberries are definitely one of my favourite fruits <3 Thank you so much, what a wonderful swap :3 (and yeah, I may live near Whittards but you have a tea shop that blends tea of your choice for you! *jealous* xD)
Response: I am so happy that it finally made it to you!! I was starting to get slightly worried!
If you ever need more, let me know and we can organize another Private swap, that was awsome!! ^^ Happy Sipping!
Comment: Those recipes all look so yummy. I can't wait to try them. Thank you so much.
Response: YAY! I am happy that both of those reached you on the same day, lol. For some reason I had a fear that they were to be separated! lol. The Grape Jelly Meat Balls are a family fav...try them first! ^^
Comment: SquEEEEEEEEEEal!!!! Yes, I squealed! So stinkin' cute!! Wow you made a gorgeous card!! I would pay a lotta money for this at a store! I SO love this sunflower made outta tea bag wrappers! And the little inside detail. I'm not sure I could ever send this away to anyone! May have to shrink wrap it and keep it forever! Thank you so much for your thoughtful, beautiful, creative art - I love it! And some lovely yummy teas to boot. We need a thread in the group to show off what we received! VERY happy mail day indeed...
Response: -Phew- I am so glad that it made it!! I was starting to get alittle worried. So HAPPY that you love it that much! I was very proud of it when I was done, even hubby was impressed with what I can do with teabag wrappers, lol. Makes me Squee knowing that you love it so much!♥ ^^
Comment: Hi Raquelle! thanks for the card. Interesting thing, when I received it, it was slit on the top and bottom like someone was trying to get into it. I complained to our "wonderful" postal service and he blew me off and said "a machine did it". I then blew some steam off (this is not the first problem I have had with them) and left. they did file a complaint, so I guess i got something out of it. Thanks and Merry Christmas:0) Teri
Comment: I received your lovely tea card! I love the colors you used (teal, brown, & the pink felt mug w/gingerbread man & heart - very cute). Thank you for sharing some of your Bigelow Vanilla Chai with me; the cherry tea looks good too. About the envie - I didn't get it until I read your explanation on the back (smile). "T"
Response: LOL Thats awsome! I am glad that you got it and like it so much. I almost forgot about the decorating the envie part, lol. Then I came up with that off the top of my head. :) I am glad that I put an explanation on the back to !!
Comment: I finally recieved a handmade card!! All the ones I send out I make, but only get store bought ones in return (not that there is anything wrong with that) But I am glad to be getting a handmade one. Thanks so much :)
Response: You are very welcome! I try my best to send handmade o es whenever possible. Lol have a wonderful holidays!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely card! The tea "embellishments" were a wonderful touch! :-)
Response: So Glad that you liked your card! ^^ I read your profile and saw that you loved tea like me! You should join the "Tea is Love" group, we have alot of fun in there and there are some amazing tags going on!
Comment: I absolutely adored the cute notecard, did you make it yourself? The weather today is miserable - dark and rainy, so your notecard as well as the tea cheered me up! Also thanks for taking the time to read my profile and not send me the flavours I requested not to receive! I can't wait to try the tea, they look interesting flavours!
It was a pleasure to receive something from you :)
Response: Honestly, I don't remember the card that I sent you, so I could have made it myself! I make most of them normally. So glad that you liked what I passed along, and I do aim to please! Thanks for the ♥
Comment: I was SSSOOOO happy to receive my teas in the mail, had to try them immediately. I LoVe them both, but the lavender Earl Grey is AMAZING!
thanks so much!!***oops the JASMINE Earl Grey was amazing!!
Response: It was Jasmine love! Not Lavender, lol. And I am so happy that you liked them!
Comment: Teehehee I think it's funny that you consider oldies 70's 80's. Where as I consider oldies stuff from the 50's and 60's that my mom listened to. I also sent out Dangerous out with my mail list, cept mine was a remix.
Response: LOL yes I can see that. But that's the stuff that my parents listened to! Billy Joel especially. My Dad got me hooked on him. ♥? ^^ But there were just so many of my favs that I couldn't list! I hope there is another one of these swaps! ^^
Comment: Oh wow, thanks so much for the beautiful handmade Autumn postcard & your list. Don't be too hard on yourself, it sounds like you're improving your health more than you know. ;) Have a good weekend.
Response: Thankyou very much! I am so happy that you liked it! ^^
