Comment: You can do it!!! You’ll get these goals :). I’m not terribly far from Conway - I like it there but don’t make it down often. Not sure what kinds of books you like best, but Dark Matter is one I just started. It’s good, and I’m getting through it pretty quickly. Sometimes a fast read is good for contests :). Good luck !!!
Comment: Thank you for your note, and the tea, Amy. I've never heard of pepper jam. What do you put it on? I l-o-v-e the card with the bicycle and flowers♥
Response: Pepper jam is very pretty with red, green and yellow peppers. Also - spicy because you do include jalapeño peppers with some of the seeds. It’s great with cream cheese on toast or crackers. My Dad is super happy that I cut up all the peppers, esp the spice ones where I have to wear gloves to avoid the oils in them from really hurting my hands.
Comment: You mentioned that you had a special tea that you would have sent but didn't because of the caffeine ... I've given up on the no caffeine bit (doctor's not happy) and wish you had sent it along - thanks for reading my profile to see that btw. You're great, thanks for being my swap partner.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note, and the cute baggage. I am getting around things pretty good, not that I will ever be accomplished as a left handed person, but I have a new admiration for people with disabilities,. I will do more for those I can. I miss knitting and crosheting, but less then 2weeks to go. Hang in there with your knitting, ihats to think of all the things I have started and it just didn't turn out to look like the picture,ha ha .i took up crocheting just a few years ago, so consider myself a beginner yet. Thanks again . Marcia
Response: So glad you've got and and are making some progress!
Comment: Cashmere - I feel spoiled! Thanks for the pattern choices, I think that I'll have to make the Sunlight Shawl for Sad People if only for its name - the yellow is so cheery! I don't know where you got that adorable PC. And I've never seen such an adorable stitch marker holder. Thank you!
Response: You are very welcome. I hope you enjoy it all. I loved the name of that pattern too!
Comment: Well, my desk area got a much needed cleaning. I also have a safer place for swaps so they can be rated when I head downstairs most nights. I would blame my 2 year old, but considering the disorder on my desk, it could have been me that knocked it over the side. I am so sorry that you had to wait for your rating. Thank you very much! I appreciate everything including your patience!
Comment: Hello Amy & thank for the postcard you sent to me showing past time view of boardwalk at Chesapeake Beach, MD. That is fascinating about your trip to this beach as I spent most of my life in MD & made few trips in the past with my family to MD's eastern shore. Sad the boardwalk at Chesapeake Beach was destroyed by a storm in 1930, I'm glad the boardwalk was rebuilt. Happy Spring!
Comment: Thanks so much for the fun envelope and glittery card - it's so pretty! You know I love those Snoopy stickers too! We had a snowstorm this morning. I'm always ready for winter to be over!!! Hope you have a great day!
Comment: Thanks for giving me a look at the good things that happened to you last month -- you chose a great time for this swap with you vacation time in it. Keep on doing what you're doing, it sounds like a happy life.
Comment: The cold snap when it hit here was -27 to -32 it was flippin' cold. Your NDH wasn't that bad. How long did it take you to write yours? With my hand cramping it took about 20 minutes. Thanks for swapping with me.
Comment: We just came out of a cold snap of negative temps and are about to enter into another one after getting several inches of snow last night. This will for sure come in handy! Its very beautiful. Thank you.
Comment: That was a FAST turnaround for a swap, you REALLY needed to vent!! :) I honestly see your POV and can see why you needed to let it out :) Thank you for joining, and thank you for the sparkly unicorn stickers <3
Comment: While driving home, I was telling myself to rate for receipt... and save the opening for Christmas... but the other voice reminded me that I love swaps from Amy, and I MUST open ASAP! 2nd voice won :) THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I love the cards and letter set, and that you took the time to make me a dishcloth makes me exceedingly happy. Thank you so much!! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for your articles. The first one actually helped me on the day I received it, and the second one(I consider really well written) arrived on my birthday(today) great timings for both, have a nice day! :)
Comment: That's so great that you and your husband do this daily together. It sounds like you have really made it a habit. I really enjoyed learning about this, thank you for running the swap. I found it made me much more cognizant of what I actually did in a day, and setting an intention which seemed to take hold subconsciously. I found myself thinking in a more grateful manner throughout the day, on the days I did it. I have not made it a habit yet like you, but hope to be self motivated enough to do it on my own.
Comment: Thank you so much! I'm so happy you and your hubby are able to do it together. My hubby and I have just started a bible study we are doing together. This would be a great addition to that time together.
Comment: Thank you so much for the variety of teas you sent! I love the names of some of these! Prince of Wales and Lady Grey are such romantic sounding names. How was the block party you went to? I'm off to enjoy a nice cuppa tea! Hope to swap with you again!
Comment: Cool Washi tape Amy the designs went well with the picture on the postcard, thank you very much. I will be on the look out now for some Washi tape for myself. I hope you had a nice day for your bike ride :)
Comment: Thanks for the great seasonal art envie and washi tape! I was afraid, for a minute, that I had received a very late swap! LOL It is around 60 degrees F here. Perfect working weather. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely swap Amy! I am sorry for the late rate but I had been on vacation when you're card found its way to my mailbox. What a lovely surprise to come home to! :) I hope you're having a great day and thank you so much again!
Comment: Mindfulness is one of the things that I use with the majority of my clients with all the mess they have going on in their lives, they need a calming, centering experience. Thank you for the article.
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the support this month! You sent me some great ideas for ways to be active and I've already started incorporating some into my routine. Thank you for the thoughtful final encouragement - I didn't have a resistance band, so will definitely give it a try!
Comment: Thanks for the letter ðŸ˜‹ June has been super wet and stormy but the mornings have sometimes been occasionally decent. My car got hit by lightning â›ˆ at work and I hope it will be completely fixed by the end of next week. I did start dating someone for the first time in a couple years and I took her to see Wonder Woman as a first date and it was amazing. We saw it again about a couple weeks ago and saw Despicable Me 3 Thursday which was hilarious. I am going to a board game convention in Orlando next week called Dice Tower Con which should be lots of fun. Have a great day, Nathan
Comment: I always love receiving a note from my partner so thank you firstly for your lovely note. The water themed note card was esp nice, the stickers are super cute and thanks also for sending me a postcard that you knew I would be very pleased with. Here the weather is sunny and therefore the beach was packed at the weekend :)
Comment: Thank you for the great swap! I also love the card you enclosed it in. I'll be going to Florida in August. I took 4 trips between March and May so I'm tapped out now!!! Lol!! Enjoy your summer!!! xo

Comment: Thank you very much for the teas and the lovely card, it reminded me a lot of Florida tooðŸ˜„ Your trip to Toronto sounded great too, unfortunately holidays have to end.....
Have a great dayðŸ˜‹
Comment: Thank you very much! I really like all three of the patterns you sent. They're a lot like the ones I sent my partner lol. I'll give them a try soon, when the weather cools off. Something about this heat and humidity makes me shy away from yarn, which is weird because I can still sew. Who knows! Hope your summer is going well, and thanks again!
Comment: Hi Amy!! Thank you for the nice note and cute owl stickers. That's great that you've been able to see some movies and are enjoying the summer! Thanks for using the ice cream stamp - I love them!!! Have a nice weekend!! : )
Comment: Hello Amy,
Thank you for the 3 samples of washi tape you sent me for this swap. All three are great samples and are all new samples to me. I look forward to using the samples in future projects.
Comment: Hey, thanks for an awesome greeting card! I love it! Thanks for going the extra mile and including a decorated envelope too, not to mention the time you took to write down some netflix suggestions...I appreciate them, and I will definitely check them out!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute note card and note. It sounds like a fun weekend! I don't think I could get my husband anywhere near a yoga class! LOL That's neat that you can do such great things together. :-)
Comment: Amy, loved your note...thanks so much for sharing with me. Today I am grateful that my work day is now over, that my dog has been walked and I can now sit and rest my weary feet. At any rate I am always grateful for a wonderful swap partner like you. Thank you also for the cute round labels. Cheers.
Comment: Thank you for the note and postcards! I was just in DC a couple of weeks ago - it had been soooo long since my last visit. I had a great time and went to a lot of museums!!! Have a great day!!
Comment: Hello Amy!!! Thanks for the beautiful package you sent to me! The flowers and the decoration in general was so pretty that I could wait to open it and see what was inside :)! I loved the fact you sent those seeds too, amazing! Thanks for taking the time to make a beautiful envelope for me, it made my day!!!!

Comment: Hi Amy! Thank you for sending such a fun parcel for this swap! It was so nice to read your newsy letter and try out the tea (a new one for me) . . . I've had to switch from coffee to tea (ulcers) so I loved reading about your "tea life" . . . thanks again and I'll get a letter out to you within a week!
Comment: Always an amazing swap. I am IN LOVE with my little sock bag. I need a link to that pattern, so wonderful. :) The other project bag - right up my vintage alley :) Perfect pattern, chocolate, and notion selection. I'm mesmerized. Thank you so much!
Comment: You won't believe it -- the envie you sent dated Nov 9 arrived TODAY -- Feb. 17. More than 3 months from the US -- that's just nuts! The stickers are fun -- I have an idea already for a couple of them! Thank you!
Response: Great! Sounds like you'll be enjoying the 2nd and 3rd sends this spring and the summer?!

Comment: Thanks for the lovely cards and tea. I can't wait to try them. You hoped my winter would finish so spring can come, well we don't actually have winter here in Cairns. We have wet season and dry season. Wet season is very hot and humid and dry season has almost no rain and most days around 28 which is just about perfect.
Comment: Hi Amy! Thank you for the great lighthouse postcard. It was a new one for my collection. I hope your hot pepper jam came out great. If you lived closer, my husband would be knocking at your door. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for your punctuality! I had an unexpected happy mail day when your greeting arrived. I especially like the150 Ways... poster. We already have a use for it. I hope you are enjoying the rest of your summer! -Adriann!
Comment: Hello there! Your card arrived today, thank you so much :) Definitely put a smile on my face. We don't usually get snow at all where I am, but this year we did! So it's been pretty crazy, haha. And yes, oh gosh, aren't those envelope punch boards just fantastic. Have a lovely day!
Comment: Thank you so much. You must have sensed how much I love Papyrus. I just wish there was a store in my area. I am lucky to find them at Target. Thank you also for the stamps. They will help animals all over the world.
Comment: Hi Amy,
Sorry rating late, I'm a little behind... Thank you for your mail and a HUGE thank you for the owls stickers (happy dance) they're sooooo cute ! I saw them on Utube a few times and was so happy to find them in my mail.
XOXO, Lilou from France ^^
Comment: Amy - you worried too much - the tassel is beautiful!! - honestly! :) I think you are a tassel maker! You didn't have to include anything extra with the tassel but I appreciate it! The dishcloth is beautiful - I love the colors!!
Comment: Thanks for the card - right now I'm actually making a 24 x 36 inch lighthouse quilt using a postcard of the St. Augustine lighthouse as a model for a quilt challenge! I'll have to post a pic when it's done!
Comment: My package was absolutely awesome! Couldn't have been happier, wore the socks to my job and everyone loved them. The bracelet is super cute and all the other goodies, I can't wait to use in my planner. Thank you so much!
Comment: Amy, thank you for the very interesting tea bag. It sounds really different. Also, thank you for the lighthouse postcards. How you are enjoying the cherry blossoms. The azaleas are blossoming here. I am so mad, the deer ate all my azalea bushes except for two of them. We are having a awful time with the deer eating everything here. We won't be having a very colorful azalea festival this year. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for the fun and special package you sent! I am honored that you knit the cloth for me and plan to take it and the farmer's market soap on the business trip I leave for tomorrow. Not scratchy hotel cloth and harsh soap for me this time out! I can't wait to try the tea, will probably take that along too. Thank you for such a sweet and personal swap!
Comment: Well, if it is any indicator here, spring should be heading for you shortly. You guys have been pummeled all winter. Thank you for the bits. I love them all and I am going for the black tea right now!!!
Comment: Oh my goodness. I love the cowl neck scarf and the ear warmers. The variegated yarn you used is beautiful and I love the colors. I'm definitely going to wear for Valentine's day. Beautiful work on them. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the handmade goodies and all the scented soap and candies. Thank you for all of the care that you spent picking out and making the special items. The pendant will be hung at my desk at work. I hope that you received the pen pal letter that I sent a couple of weeks ago. Thanks
Comment: Hi Amy! Thank you so much for the teas and the beautiful card! I'll try one of the teas today, it looks specially delicious (the cream earl grey tea :P)
And be sure, I'll send you something soon ^_^
Take care and Happy New Year!
Comment: It was such a great pleasure to receive your beautiful envelope filled with various most lovely extra cards. Thank you so much! The traveling postcard will continue its journey in the next round.
Comment: Thank you so much for the great package that you sent. I love the notecards, envelope and I always need return address labels. The little kitty is so cute. I am so sorry that I took so long to rate you.
Comment: Thank you so very much for tons of lovely mail all month. I really loved every item that you've sent my way. That fish shaped towel that you crocheted is so cute and the fact that you made it especially for me just makes it even more special....THANK YOU
Comment: Hi amy, thank you for your letter sets. Although the sheets should have been no smaller than a5, I'm still rating you a five because you send me 3 sets instead of 1. (But please do send a5, or bigger next time)
Comment: Thank you for the peacock feather napkins - I received them the same day (yesterday) that I happened to see peacocks at the Los Angeles County Arboretum - so it was perfect timing! Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you so very much for a wonderful mailart-envelope you made at the Mail Art Social! Oh,what a great evening it must have been! And I just love the note-card you made and the enclosed goodies :) Have a great day :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the nice selection of teas. I will try to enjoy the wafer cookies, but I may need a bowl and a spoon. They were pulverized in the postal system due to being mailed in an un-padded paper envelope.
Comment: This is a wonderful assortment of tea. I look forward to trying each one as they are all new flavors to me. I appreciate the beautiful handmade envelope. Very Summery. Thank you very much for a lovely swap. â™¥
Comment: The little hat is absolutely adorable!!! Thank you so much. It will be perfect for my little girl when the weather gets cooler. What a wonderful, thoughtful swap. As always, it is truly a pleasure to swap with you.

Comment: â™¥ Extra Special ---Thank you so much for the decorated envie, personalized printed TN address labels, unique notecards, the letter set and your wonderful letter which I read while I sipped the new to me brand EG tea and I liked it alot.. â™¥Great Swap
Comment: Heart! Heart! Heart! I absolutely LOVE my cowl neck scarf and it goes with my hat you made. It is wonderful and luckily it is autumn now with winter starting in June so I won't have to wait long to wear it. :)
Comment: Dear Amy, Nice letter and postcards, thanks for reading my profile ~ as you found out I Love NYC ! I've been there twice now and planning another trip in a year or so. I'm also a fan of envelope swaps, just discovered these security ones they always went in the recycle bin before. I really like the envelope you sent me, you did a great job with so many different materials. I've done crochet for many years ~ last thing I made was a very large pink blanket with a ruffled edging. I really like tunisian crochet, but it rolls up too tight to make anything or at least I haven't figured it out :( Thanks for everything and especially your nice letter. Take care, Judy
Comment: I loved the card. And I hope they can work everything out... You never know.. He is 19 though, he still has a lot of life ahead of him. Whatever happens I hope it is the best outcome for all involved.
Comment: Loved having you as my partner in this swap. Thank you for the fingerless gloves you made they are fabulous! I wanted to make some but have not had a time so it was a nice surprise and a blessing. I enjoyed corresponding and will get a letter out to you soonish. Happy swapping!
Comment: I just absolutely love the envelope! I was so amazed by the envelope I just kept turning it over and over again and looking at everything inside and out. I carefully opened it, and thank you for the goodies inside. It truly made my mailbox smile and I did too! :)
Comment: I am a total DITZ-WAD!! This was such a nice package, and I totally flaked on getting my rating registered to you. PLEASE forgive me! I had a house full of company when your package arrived, and I set it aside to pay closer attention to later... and it got lost in the shuffle. You deserve more than 1 star for such a nice package - - AND your patience with me for not following-up on time!
Comment: I had so much fun reading your letter :) and then I unwrapped the tissue!!!! Wow! I wish I could give you more hearts :) the towel and wash cloth are so beautiful! I'm so impressed with your talents and I just LOVE them :) what awesome Happy mail!!!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Comment: Wow!!! What a fun package!!! I loved everything. I am horrible at buying make-up for myself and other things to pamper myself with so.... it really helps that you thought to send me them. I even used the mascara tonight on my way to a class. I have been out of mascara for over a year. oops! I also will enjoy reading the magazine. My daughter totally snagged the booties that you knit and begged to keep them. They look so cute on her and she loved them so much I didn't have the heart to take them back. I really appreciate you making them for me though. :)
I was dying over the Dia de los muertos oven mitts. Those were amazing!!! I can't wait to use them when we have a Day of the Dead party!!! Thanks so much you were a wonderful partner and you put so much thought into it. Plus you wrapped everything so nicely.
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely hat. I cannot wait for winter so that I can show it off. I absolutely love it. I am so glad that it got here safely. Hopefully the Postal strike is now over and everything will return to normal.
Comment: LOVE IT !!!!! Thank you so very much. The sunflower bag is awesome-is it a Baked Potato Bag? I really love the Baggu Bag and it has already found it's resting place in my purse. I almost had to rescue the caliper from my hubby and the threads, zippers and Velcro will happily be put to use. Thank you so very much for such a great swap.
Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE your happy mail art! The envie was super cute...the card is so sweet (my son loves that story!) and the lady bug is sooooo cute!!! Did you make it yourself?? I love it. Thank you!!!
Comment: A is for AWESOME AMY! Thank you so very much for a great swap! I bet you had fun searching for my items, each item is perfect for me. I hope yours is as much fun! Hugs and lots of Hearts, Robin
Comment: Thanks so much for the coasters and/or face wipes (I guess they could be used for a number of things!!) that you sent! I'm assuming from your username that you knitted them? My mom and I tried knitting this past weekend...TRIED being the correct word. We have crocheted for years and years, but something about putting two needles in our hands did NOT go well! We watched YouTube video after YouTube video to have no success. It was the most frustrated I've been in a while. Haha! So I commend you! :P
Response: You're welcome! I ordered them from your Etsy faves list. They were listed as face wipes.
Comment: Thank you for my goodies (and sorry it took me a few days to rate) I LOVE the knitting bag, I'm in NoVa a lot so I'm going to look this place up next time I'm up there :-) And believe it or not this is the first time I've ever received coffee! THANK YOU! This shows that you took the time to read my profile. Happy swapping!
Comment: Sooooo very sorry I'm a year late on rating this swap. I was archiving when I realized I had never rated this swap. I hope it's not to late to tell you that I love the totebag and the hand towel you sent me.
Comment: Thank you so much for the yarn and it is in the colors I love. I've always wanted to try this yarn, but have procrastinated in buying it. Now I don't have an excuse, I have the yarn. Again thank you, Shirley
Comment: I have an awesome marble topped table. Made from a treadle sewing machine base, and your table runner is protecting the green marble top while adding to the beauty of the piece. The highest compliment I can give the crocheted piece is that I have already stowed it away to live in our summer home, where I keep my favorite things. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for all of your lovely cards! I enjoyed hearing from you every week and I still hold out hope that I will make the time to reply via post. I loved the adorable knit house as well as the address labels! Thank you again!
Comment: loved the card(pretty) and the teas,yes they r perfect as i have no preference cause i only "collect"them not drink them,and these were new for my collection,good choice my friend :) and thanks for the cute stickers and have a great day,Amy!!!
Comment: Thank you for your card and the teas. Although the requiremnts of the swap explicitly say ; "absolutely no regular flavors of tea like mint" (quote) I think I do like the mint tea you send me.
Response: The mint tea I sent was spearmint which was packaged at the store as a kind of tea packaged for the winter season...holiday decorations on the box and everything. I am glad you like it.
Comment: Thanks so much for the journal. I skimmed through it and it looks marvelous. I immediately emailed my Markeroni friends to tell them about the clever placecards at the wedding you went to (I hope they know about Markeroni!). I've snarfed a bit in Arlington, but I don't think I have most of the markers you mentioned yet. Thank you for sharing your adventures, random facts, Doctor Who episode recaps, and your thoughts. I can't believe I forgot to put my DayZeroProject list in the one I sent my swap partner--I'm starting my third round of 1001 days on Friday!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely teas - it's the first time i've heard of "IRISH breakfast tea" :) and crimsom blossom (love the name). And the card is really cute, so i'm placing it on my wall (even has a quote on the back) :D
Comment: thanks for the tote bag, it's nice and spacious for my fruit-shopping! It sounds like you ad a lovely weekend with your friends' wedding! I enjoyed reading your letter. We did swap before, on the same series! I was to send to you, I sent a tote bag and something else, can't really remember :-)
Comment: Amy I love these pocket socks...too cute thank you so much for making them for me in my colors! I can't wait to wear them. I like the other socks too but I think I like the hand-made ones best!
Comment: Amy...Love the towel you knitted the topper for...great colors and love the button:) The sage mitt and pot holders are much needed!! Thank you for everything:) The extra was beautiful and so thoughtful!!!...Charlene
Comment: You have been a wonderful partner. Have throughly enjoyed your letters and goodies. I just got the great crocheted items - they are awesome. I have the hanging towel one out already and I will be putting the multi color one in my bedroom. Thanks for a great swap.
Comment: Thank you for the things that you sent me. I couldn't wait to try the tea so sat down with a lovely cup made from the TAZO teabag to read your letter. Thank you too for the very pretty handmade bookmark.
Comment: What a fun package! Thank you for giving me something for each letter, plus adding more extras as well. Don't worry, it's only red colored tea that I don't care for - red salad dressings are fine. I'm happy you're having fun with these scavenger hunts.
Comment: Received the tea yesterday, that was quick! Haha - I'll need a translator for the one in the green packet - I have deduced from the picture that there may be mint in it. What fun! Thanks for sharing your foreign tea.
Comment: Thank you for sharing with me how your summer has been going so far. I'm glad that things went well with your son while you were away. Hope that your upcoming travels are fantastic! Thanks for writing!
Comment: Amy, this is a wonderful package! I've seen Debbie Maycombers books around but have never read one...I started reading this one last night and love it! The bookpocket is too cute. What a neat idea! Thank you so much for a great swap!
Comment: Amy dear, I loved this package and you made me feel very special. Thank you for all the goodies! I am just about to finish a good book and was wondering what book to read next, and sure enough here comes your package with an interesting book for me to read. Happy me!
Comment: Hi Amy
Received the magnet today and couldn't be happier. To have a magnet that reminds me of happy holidays spent visiting Washington makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Thank you so much for picking this one for me. I really appreciate the effort.
Comment: I never heard of tea wallets before I joined swap-bot. I wondered if you would be knitting one and you came through!! It's great and, of course, I love the colors.I really fretted over making one. I think knitting may have been less stressful, for me anyway.
The teas and bag holder and ornament are very nice. Thanks so much!! I would be honored to be your penpal!!
Comment: Such a lovely letter and thank you for the tea. I thought it especially fitting as I'm planning a kids party for grown-ups for my birthday this year. Glad to hear you have such fond memories of it.
Comment: Thank you for the tea (it smelled so good coming out of the envelope), and the great coffee themed note card - loved all the fun polka-dot mugs on it. I enjoyed reading your note too. Regarding upcycling my cards - great; I have no problems with anyone doing that.
Comment: Thanks for the tea bags and the nice card that arrived today! I realised when I read it I've actually been to your area once. No wonder the name sounded familiar when I put your address on the envelope :) It was very kind of you helping a newbie such as myself out. That's what your star is for: not only swapping with me but also being my guide as to how to go about a private swap. Thanks!
Comment: AMAZING and Thank you so much. The package you made is wonderful. Hard to say what my favorite item is. I love the doily (would love the pattern if you have it and would share). The towel is great and you are correct I do like the "to write on" card - it is perfect. Your note card and env are beautiful and I am sure I will upcycle these and would purchase some if I find them around SD. Again THANK YOU so much you put a big smile on my face today.
Comment: Thanks a lot, the lotion is not and hand-cream....but his fragrance is amazing, and i love so much green tea.So the lotion isn't tested on animals and haven't my allergen!!!!!Love so much your swap!
Comment: I had never tried Trader Joe's anything, very good thanks. I know exactly where you live, I was born & raised on the Eastern Shore of Delaware & Maryland. Trying to move back. I have a dear friend that lives near you. BTW love you note card, had to check the website out. Thanks so much.
Comment: Mmmm! Of all the chai I've received so far, this smells the best--I really, really can't wait to sample it! Glad to hear from someone so close, as well (and good to know this chai is definitely available in my area, if I like it!)
Comment: Ha Ha! I received 3 chai-party swaps from Virginia TODAY - isn't that funny! I'm so happy to try this red chai - I've been wanting to try it but never have! Thanks so much - great teas! Pretty envie/stamps, too! :)
Comment: AWESOME teas! I'm super excited about every single one - and LOL thanks so much for the "D", too! I think I'll try them ALL tonight at work! Can't wait! Hope your daffodils don't freeze! Isn't it nice to see the early signs of spring, though? :) Great swap!
Comment: Wonderful package arrived today! Even tho I live in FL, we do get some pretty cool days in Jan & Feb so the gloves will be used; the snowmen stickers & note card are great; haven't had lip gloss in a long time so I look forward to using the strawberry scented gloss; and I love the chocolate & the coffee and yummy cookies...thanks for being so thoughtful! HUGS!!
Comment: Thanks for the choice of tea you sent me!
I inserted my rating a long time ago but has just been reminded to do that again, so let me apologize in case it was not saved at your profile properly. Thanks again!
Comment: thanks for the pretty wallet! I always have a "back-up" stash! The chocolates were yummy too...notice I used the past tense there... (and the package just arrived this afternoon!) LOL! Happy swapping!
Comment: You speedy-little-things-you! I love my little cap and had to wear it last night and then to work today. It is so cute, who would have tought to put a couple buttons on a cap to make it turn out so charming. I love it, and all the sweets and the book mark too! Great swap Amy!
Response: I am glad I made you happy Dottie! Thanks for all you do for this group...hosting, etc.
It was joy to have your package come in the mail today! It was so thoughtful and adorable! I've made myself a cup of the earl gray and immediately put my kindle into that super handsome bag! ^_^ I enjoyed it very very much! Thank for the beautiful stationary also!! You made my day!
Comment: I have the great pleasure to leave two ratings at once for you ;D
First let me say: You are a wonderful person. I was giddy after opening your amazing package. Sooo much tea and a lovely note AND two lovely little bags (did you make them yourself? the ladybug one is just gorgeous).
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful letter sets ! I also liked the postcards. The postcard with so many small photos of Pennsylvania was very interesting .I also liked your address label with roses : D
Comment: wow, such a great letter, mapcard and absolutely marvelous tea, I cant believe i only found the envelope now, as it came during my long camp stay, it dissapeared from my sight. thank you once again for great swap
Comment: Thank you, Amy! I've never had a knit hand towel before so I'm happy to get to know this new-to-me item. It hangs quite conveniently on my kitchen cabinet door handle. Such a practical thing :-)
Comment: I love the pretty glittery sunflowers on the notecard! In pretty autumn colors! And I already know I will love both of the teas - thank you so much! My dad's in Falls Church VA and said there was a bout an inch of snow! Who'da thunk it? Hope your mini Turkey day turned out yummy!
Comment: Hi Amy,.
Thank you so much for the amazinggggggggg letter and Yes yes! I will be writing back. It was so nice to meet you in the mail. I apologize for being late in Rating... Please forgive me.
Comment: Thank you for the letter and the extra goodies! I particularly like the peppermint patties, they're yummy! I enjoyed reading your letter and will be writing back to you soon :) If it doesn't reach you before you go away on your trip I hope you have a lovely and relaxing time :)
Comment: Thanks for your patience. This is a really good-looking tote bag. I love the design. Does is say "Mom" or is that the name of the store? Doesn't really matter, I really like it. I love apples :-) I've never used a granny-stitch cloth, and I'll be interested to see if they dry faster than others. Nice colors, too!
Response: YAY...I am glad all is well. The bag is from a local store....MOM's...My Organic Market.
Comment: Thank you for your lovely letter about your day, sorry it wasn't the best day =( I'll be writing back soon, although there is a letter for you from the "thinking of you" swap on it's way from me! xx
Comment: I love the towel and washcloth you knitted for me! The towel is already hanging in my kitchen, but the "dishcloth" is so pretty that it may just become a doily under one of the many vases I seem to collect. Thanks so much for crafting such beautiful items for me! <3
I really really liked reading your letter. I hope there is another swap so I can get more like this and if you ever wanna send another just for kicks, I really like reading them :) Thank you for sharing and I'm sending lots of love your way.
Comment: Thank you!! What a nice choice of cards! I am not sure I would ever take the stickers off and use them because it would ruin the card, but I love the ocean card that has the stickers! And the stickers...thank you very much!!
Comment: I did not take off even though the seals were clearly broken on both of these...wish they were new...like the swap stated...I might have used them.
Response: These did have seals on them when I mailed them. I checked that at purchase and mailing. They were brand new. I feel this user is responding negatively to a somewhat negative comment I left on Sept 16 for her about a swap in which she threw some tea bags in an envie with no note. I did rate her a 5, however.
Comment: Thanks for the envies. I will have to use my own stickers as my daughter snatched the ones you sent, LOL. I really love the dishcloth. If it is a public pattern please let me know where I can find it. Thanks again Celticmoon
Comment: Hey everyone...look at this swapper...she sends FAST and sends GREAT stuff! Wow, thank you for the new book. How did you know I just finished one on the way home from work tonight. I came home to find you have a new one waiting for me in the mailbox along with some wonderful cocoa to enjoy with it. thank you Amy for the great package and all the goodies!
Response: I am happy you liked it. I hope you like the book and author.
Comment: Thanks for sending! I hope you got the chance to give your feedback. I'm really interested in hearing how it went. I hope everything works out for you and you end up with a much better position and supervisor!
Comment: Thanks for the nice letter. You're the second person recommending The 19th Wife, I guess I should really get it. In fact, I had already ordered it, but I wasn't home when it arrived and it disappeared from the lobby of my building... Thanks for the bracelet!!!!
Comment: Hi Amy and thank you so much for the package with the amazing packaging.. the postman said it was the most fun envelope he had ever seen :o)
All of the things are lovely and I really appreciate your reading my profile and going to so much trouble, wish I could give you more hearts!
Thank you once again,
anni : o)
Comment: Thanks so much for the goodies. I love everything espcially the postcards. They will fit into my collection just fine. Sent some love 1-because I loved everything and 2- because the world needs a little more.
Comment: amazing!!!! And I LOVED all of it!!! Thank you so much! The handmade washcloth is so pretty! And don't be offended, but I needed some handmade love in my kitchen so that's where I'm using it... countertops only tho :)
Response: Oh..my dear...please use the cloth as you would like...you can also wash dishes with it!
Comment: Amy, this is a gorgeous card, thanks so much and the positive message is so moving. Thanks....Robin. Also, thanks so much for putting your return address on here so that I may return the favor. Thanks again. Robin Would you like to be pc penpals? Just let me know.
Comment: Thanks so much for your letter. It smelled really good thanks to the tea you included. I'm hoping that you do get to go on your cruise, but even if you don't, I hope your anniversary will still be super special.
Comment: Loved the swap... my fav was the soap and soap sack... do you make those yourself? They smell amazing...the HK lip balm was adorable... Thanks so much for that... I have never seen that kind before. The teas will be gone before the night is over with the tea suckers in this house... lol
Comment: Hey Amy!
I receive your letter today, I'm happy to know much better Arlington (I went to google map too and found a pic of your street ^-^) it seems to be a very peacefull and a great place to live and thanks for the magnet.
XOXO from over the seas
Comment: Dearest Lady Amy, I am in receipt of your missive and am pleased to make your acquaintence in this fashion. My thanks for your stylish letter and I will attempt to answer your inquires without significant delay. (Isn't this fun?!) With Kind Regards, Lady Stephanie
Response: I am glad you enjoyed it. I don't think I have written that much cursive in 20 years. It pained me, but is fun!
Comment: Thank you! "White chocolate kisses" - could a tea sound more tempting? :-) And so sweet of you to send me the flower seeds. You really didn't have to!!! But they sure made me happy.
Response: I mailed on March 11, 2011. I see you are new here and don't know you really should contact people before you low rate them to give them a chance to rectify what the postal system may have messed up. If you are willing to consider removing this low rating, I will RESEND.
Comment: i hope that got a lot off your chest. i am sorry you have such a devil of a mother in law. i hope she gets better, or atleast you can stand to be around her more. my boyfriend's mother, who will i am sure will be my mother in law sooner or later is really nice to me. but she is really rotten to max which i can't to watch. she can be a real loon sometimes. it frustrates me but i remember she's decent to me & until i am in the middle of her being rude to max, really rude i need to bite my tongue. =P i hope you had a great easter! <3
Comment: Wow! This came fast!! I have tasted vanilla caramel once and it was good!! I'm keeping this for a special evening!! And the egg nog flavor is interesting to try! Many thanks for the nice teas!!
Comment: My apologies for the delay in rating. Preparations for the Easter weekend had been hectic so I wasn't able to rate you right away. Anyway, thank you very much for the different tea varieties you sent. I will try them all. My fave tea is green tea with roasted brown rice (genmaicha). It's great paired with sweet coffee cakes. :) I hope you had a great trip. Thanks again.
Comment: Oh wow Amy - thank you SO much! The felted bag is absolutely lovely!!! Such a beautiful, rich color...
The little knitted cloth is great too! My knitter co-workers are having a fit over that stitch pattern! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely card & seeds! I'll be planting those tomorrow :) Have a lovely Easter...going to the mountains sounds divine! It will be my daughter's first Easter of being old enough to 'get it' so I'm looking forward to it :)
Comment: Thank you so much for, not only the beautiful card, but the yummy tea and the fantastic magnet. Oddly, I was looking at that magnet in Michael's the other week! It was perfect! I wish I could give you several hearts for this one!
Comment: Thank you for my seeds. I absolutely LOVE sunflowers too. I usually get a bunch that will grow from my bird feeder, but I will definitely plant these and see if they are different. Happy Spring !!
Comment: Oh WOW, thank you so much, just loved your package. I crochet, so I really appreciate hand-made dish cloths and being a struggling diabetic, I also appreciate that the drink mix is sugar free. Yes, spring IS here, sun is shining and the nasty old snowbanks are fading. Time to make a pot of tea. Thanks again, happy swapping. Julie
Comment: The Easy Veggie Enchiladas sound so yummy and I love the Apple Enchiladas! My mom makes these and they are so good, I had the recipe but lost it. THANK YOU for picking that one to send! I always forget to get it when we go to visit.
Comment: I have never used Le'tt Lopi brand (Iceland) but it looks wonderful and the stitch markers were greatly appreciated too! ciao! (Received at least a week ago and my comment was posted to the wrong swap). Thanks again. I'll really enjoy using this and the stitch markers! LOL
Comment: The swap sais TWO recipes, but I wont rate you down for that, because the recipe you send sound SOOOOO delicious!!!!! Thank you so much! I can't wait to try it, something I will as early as tomorrow! :) Thank you again Amy!!! :o)
Response: Oh, so sorry for that. I made a mistake on sending only one. I apologize. I have another one I will PM you.
Comment: Thank you for the recipe and the drink. Raspberry is one of my staples. The tato recipe sounds like it would be good with a roast which I have been wanting lately. I just happen to have a bottle of white wine that has been open to long and is better for cooking now rather than drinking
Comment: Thanks for the lovely teas and the shamrock stickers! We don't celebrate St Patrick's here, but I'm going to a concert with Dropkick Murphys, a celtic punk band, in april, and I will wear one of the shamrocks on my cheek then :)
Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCH. The carmex is cooling my lips as I type. The poor things winter have suffered, layers peeled off this past weekend and man did it hurt, so thanks. The sox are cool with the bling too. Reserving them for next week. Really enjoyed the package! THANK YOU AGAIN!
Comment: Cute socks! I can't wait to try the coffee! My hubby is from Virginia-grew up in Scottsville. When we met, we lived in Newport news for a while. It was Virginia where I met my first cockroach, but when the parying mantis was stuck to my screen door threatening me, I decided to go home to nice wintery Wisconsin where the bugs were small. :) Thank you for swapping with me!
Comment: Thank you so much for your nice swap package! I can't wait to try the teas you enclosed and loved the sweater-style notecard you sent. Of course, I can't wait to use your ear warmer, too! It's lovely. Thanks for everything!
Response: Yay! I am glad you got it and are enjoying it. Thanks for letting me know it arrived.
Comment: I am very disappointed, that you did not consider my wish on the Travel mug, swap. I had asked for a send to my son Grant, but you instead sent a very girlie type mug, so I am only rating you with a 5. Rea
Response: To tell you the truth...I had purchased the mug for you and at the last minute noticed the request for your son. I will pay better attention at the beggining of the swap next time. I am newer to Swab Bot and have just learned to look at comments post on the swap page in addition to the swap/participant info. Sorry.
Comment: Boy, I had to sleuth to identify that this lovely card was from you. Don't worry, I've done the same - but it does help alot if we all remember to print the swap name on the envelope (or somewhere) Thank you!
Response: I am glad you found it. I usually put it n the right upper corner, inside.
Comment: The hand lotion and lip balm are awesome! I just used them before posting this...lol! What beautiful high quality craftsmanship you do on your cloths! They are very pretty and I am most grateful that you sent me one! Thank you for everything...I love it all!!
