Comment: Hi Audrey! Love the sweet koala bear pc - it's so cute! It's ok if you didn't do anything exciting, I enjoyed the share! LOL! Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Audrey. Your parcel was delivered this morning. Oh can't wait to open it lol. I'm fascinated with the balloons that where inside the card(yep I opened that). I haven't pulled on the tags, want to wait till my granddaughter is here. They look so interesting. Where did you get them?
Wishing you and all your family the Very Happiest of ðŸŽ„ Christmas's
Comment: Audrey, thank you so much for your pretty card and all the cute goodies that came with it. You even stuck to the colour scheme! So exciting to get some fun mail at the end of a busy day. :) Take care and happy swapping.
Comment: Hi Audrey! LOVED the card you sent of Fraser Island! I have a visit to Australia on my 'bucket list' and hope to visit one of these days. I enjoyed the card and hearing about your week! Thank you so much! Valerie
Comment: Lovely baskets Audrey! The glue would have been fine except my husband picked this parcel up in the morning and left it in the car all day on a 35 degree day. This meant the glue and the chocolates melted. You did a great job though, they're so cute!
Comment: Thanks for the note and the Aussie keychain. I'm very happy to hear you and our husband are well and that, evern though you can't drive, he can so you get to go the places you need to go and to enjoy them.
Comment: I just know my neighbour is going to love this, so I give you a heart now. Thank you for the Christmas card for me, as well as a cat Christmas card for my neighbour. She goes shopping tomorrow, so I'm going to put it at her door then. :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely thoughtful assortment - good to know I'm not the only one who 'can't count' LOL
Could you please use postage stamps in future? I have hardly any Aussie stamps in my collection and I like to swap them too.
Comment: Thanks for sending Peter some lovely hankies, socks and chocolate. He liked to pen too. He was totally surprised and the card was a cute touch too. It was fantastic to watch his face go from curiosity to confusion to delight as he opened. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful handkerchief and the very interesting historical card! I don't remember if I put on my profile that I collect handkerchiefs, but I do! So it's perfect, thank you!
Comment: Hi, received our parcel today thank you for all the useful items, Anisha opted for the LPS pen. we did have some wet and windy weather last weekend, but it is all good now.thanks for the concern. Hope you have great Easter.
Comment: Audrey, I'm so sorry for the delay in rating you. I loved what you sent; you actually put me to shame! I sent a Valentine card to my partner, but you sent so many other things as well. Your little package made my day!! Thank you so much. I hope your Valentine's Day was lovely!
Comment: I love swapping with you , but you didn't read the swap properly ,they were to be cotton squares and cut accurately. And all red cream or pink but don't worry they will get used in some project
Comment: Audrey, thank you so much for the holiday snowman that you made. I will definitely give it to my granddaughter next year and tell her all about you and that you made it. She turned 4 in August. I enjoyed your note very much. My husband and I came here 5 years ago from Massachusetts-the land of the ice and snow. It is not hot here all year long. It is in the 50's in the winter. The state of Florida was too hot for us, so we settled half way between it and Massachusetts. Hope t keep in touch with you, it seems that there are not many of us Seniors. Everyone seems to be in their 20 or 30's. Best of health for you and your husband from the land up top. I don't know what you call people in the states, like Australia is the land down under. Shirley
Comment: Great to hear from you-I'm in my early 60's and hope I can be on swap-bot into my 80's it's such a fun community of people. Thanks for the darling snowman gift tag-he can hang up now as we have snow. The new years card is very lovely too-thanks for sharing your talents! Happy New Year to you too
Comment: What a lovely Christmas card, Audrey! Thank you so much, and I love the delightful collection of Christmas rub-ons. I will put them to good use soon! Here in Houston, our Christmas weather can often be very warm and humid--up to the low 80s at times. However, we are in the midst of a strong Arctic blast that has us with highs in the 50s for about two weeks, so I am loving it! I grew up with snowy holidays and really miss them! Merry Christmas and have a wonder new year!
Comment: Received and will update when i open a bit closer to Christmas!
**Update**: Opened the gift and i love the carved head keyring. Unfortunately i already have a 2015 diary so will try and find another home for the one you sent. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Oh wow have not even opened it & am blown away by everything even something for the grandkids how special is that bought tears to my eyes thanks Audrey can't wait for Dec 1 ths is going to be the best year ever :)
Comment: Oh goodness me Audrey,you certainly know what I like.The colour is perfect.I love the pattern and the mug is so beautiful.I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE it all.Thankyou so much.I wish I could give you more hearts.
Comment: Thanks for the nice letter and the keychain and pin from Australia. It sounds like you try to stay active. Good for you and your hubby. The craft fairs sound like fun. We have one locally in the summer.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely knitted baby set Audrey. This really was a surprise for me as I don't have any babies in my family at the moment. If you don't mind, I'll pass it on to one of the charities I support. xox
Comment: Audrey... what can I say!!?? You absolutely went above and beyond in this swap! Thank you so very much for everything you sent to me... it is fully appreciated and if I could give you a thousand hearts... I WOULD!!! <3
Comment: Thank you for your wonderful package. I love the beautiful card and the gorgeous stamps and of course all the coins. You are very generous and I want you to know that I would give you an extra heart if it were possible. Your coins are so nice compared to ours :-).
Comment: Oh Audrey,I wish I could give you more hearts.
I love the egg cosys and the extra goodies.
Those Angels are gorgeous.
Have a great Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
BTW -I am back to the hospital 20th Dec
Comment: Thank you for the card, postcard of Ayers rock and the stickers! Sounds like you have a busy busy life even in retirement! Which is great, because one needs to keep moving, I think. Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Comment: You are so fast! I haven't even mailed mine out yet and here I've received your beautiful card and Emu pc and stickers from down under. Thanks so much for sending. And Audrey, I remember receiving a swap from you a while ago in which you sent me pictures of your beautiful birds. Happy Holidays to you and your family!
Comment: Hi Audrey! Thank you for the sweet card (and postcard!) I know what you mean--there's not much room on postcards. I really enjoyed hearing about your life in Australia. I'll write back shortly if you'd like to penpal.
Response: thankyou for r the rating I'm not a very good letter writer . But I'd love to hear from you again take care .....
Comment: Thank you for your letter, and the keyring :)
Sorry for the slightly delayed rating, I got your letter earlier this week but I have been pretty busy, I thought i would rate you fairly once I had a chance to really sit down and read your letter ;)
Comment: Thanks Audrey, Arrived safely today :) I love how there is enough fabric to do something biggish in the same pattern. Ill pop my part of this swap in with the SNAKE swap that im sending you in a couple of days. Much Love xoxox
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful stitched Christmas card, it is beautiful.
Thanks again for the goodies. My cat loved the little doll so much she went into the envelope and took the doll out, i haven't seen it since then
Comment: Thank you for everything you sent. I love it all and the picture lets me see who is writing. Would love to visit your country but will probably never get to so I have to see through the postcards and notes that I get.
i picked up my parcel, thank you so much, now i have to hide them so i do not open them. Also when reading your card i realised i have not updated my profile for a while as Anisha is now 9. Oops!
Comment: I recieved my presents but I'm going to wait until closer to Christmas to open them. Will update my rating when I open them. :) 16/12/12: Just opened my first gift from you, and I loved it! To do lists are fantastic, pretty and glad they are magnetised so I don't lose them!... 23/12/12 Thanks for all the other gifts you send, they are all great but I especially love the watercolour pad and paint brushes. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Sorry I cannot give you more then 1 heart, Thanks for your lovely parcel and yes I can use the bear things. You sound like you had a very restfull day. I have a nephew who lives in Marybrough.
Comment: You certainly didnt count them Audrey, there were TONNES!!! Thankyou so much for a lovely swap. Ive been using stickers ont he kids lunch order bags at school so its always nice to have new ones :)
Response: lol... I can't count so glad you can use them .......
Comment: Hi Audrey, both packages arrived safe and well. I cant wait to start opening them...in December of course..Im about to head off to Carols to drop them off so she can keep them safe for me and stop me sneakily opening a couple LOL. Ill be back in december to comment further and upgrade my rating im sure.
i received my parcel, isn't it great when you can hit 2 birds with one stone. thank you so much for all the really cool stuff, the nuts will come in handy, as we are have a bbq 2morrow for the footy, and Anisha really loves the pink ones. She is abit sick so she hasn't opened her pressies yet, but thank you for including her.
Comment: Beautiful mix of beads Audrey. As usual you go above and beyond the requirements. Thankyou so much! Will definately be trying to organise a visit to Brissy when the craft fair is on next time. We will be more organised with our visit that year :)
Comment: Lovely, generous package - I can use so much of what you sent too, thanks! Unfortunately one of the gel pens had no lid, but these things can happen (if you find a pen cap lying around, it's probably it. lol), so no worries! I have to mention, you have such a great surname - just peachy! I'll bet you get a few comments on it, right? :D
Comment: Thank you so much for the goodies you sent! Cards wit envelopes, card making kit, pens - all things I will enjoy using. I enjoyed your letter as well. We do have a lot in common! And your handwriting is fine - much better than mine, so much so that I usually type my letters to make them more readable. Thank you so much for sending the package. Hopefully the weather is cooling off for you as, hopefully, our weather will soon get warmer.
Comment: Audrey.....what can I say!! I received your lovely parcel and what a fantastic surprise to have a pressie for each of the kids in it as well. The only problem I have with the 25 days of Christmas swap is im such an impatient person that I have opened all the gifts already LOL Ozzy and I had a gift opening frenzy and before we new it they were ALL opened :) What you sent me was awesome you did such a good job of selecting gifts that I would like. I couldnt be happier. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou xxx
Comment: Thanks Audrey. I love your postcards. I took a holiday on Fraser Island so that coast one will be very special to me. I am impressed about your loving swimming at 77! I hope I'm as active as you at the same age.
Comment: Thank you very much, I loved both the cards, particularly the blue one with the suitcase. I always love getting letters with swaps, so thank you for that too. I know what you mean about learning: I took violin lessons, but couldn't stick to it because I find being taught boring. I am still rather cross with myself for that. The only way I stuck with piano was by teaching myself, which allowed me to just play things I enjoyed. I hope you find a way to pick the piano up again, it's never too late :)
Hope this finds you well, and thank you once again for the cards and letter.
Comment: Thank you for the Easter goodies Audrey, unfortunately as they were sent in just an envelope with no padding all of the chocolate was completely crushed. There were pieces of it floating around everywhere inside. The little marshmallow animals are just adorable and arrived safely!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package all the way from Australia! The spices smell wonderful and I can't wait to try the apple dessert recipes. My husband will love the dishes and the recipe cards are so pretty. Thanks so much for swapping!
Comment: What a cheery, wonderful package! It did arrive before Christmas - and Wow! How nice! I love the card you made - is that your Christmas Hearth?? You made the card so pretty with the gold stickers, I didn't realize at first it was handmade! The Australia goodies are awesome - THANK YOU! I just love receiving things from other countries, I'm an "armchair traveller" ;) The dangly tags were snatched up right away and put lovingly to good use! The whole package was a sheer delight and it lit up my Christmas - thank you SO much!
Comment: I so love the calender you sent me.I think my friend who is an Australian liked it too. But too bad its mine, ha ha ha. Love the beautifuls gifts you sent also. Can't wait to start using them.
Comment: What a fun envelope to receive! I love the pictures and the postcards - it gives me a real glimpse of what life in Australia is like! Thanks so much for sending! - oh, and for the Santa stickers as well. They are something I can add to all my Christmas card envelopes going out to my swap-bot buddies! Thanks again!
Comment: Wow!!! I am amazed at what you can do. Having cards stictched with metallic thread is awesome!! I'm saving the tree for someone who is crafty and will really appreciate it. The one with layers and stitching is really cute too. Thank you for all your effort, I love them :)
Comment: Audrey I received my lovely package today, it was great, I sent you a message as well. Thanks again, Caro
Response: Hi sorry to hear you did not get my ATC but I will make one straight away and send it out before the end of the week . I have never flaked on any one and I never intend to do so . so please wait and I'll get another one in the post . so sorry this has happened ,.. take care .. Audrey ....
Comment: Thank you so much for the pc...nice bonus along with the THREE dishclothes you sent! Your work is simply beautiful and the yarn is so soft! They're almost too pretty to wash dishes with! Thank you again for such a wonderful swap.
Comment: We meet again, my friend! I knew I was going to enjoy my package when I saw who it was from - thankyou! Your ATC's are delightful and I was so pleased, too, that I scored one of your handmade cards: lucky, lucky me! I keep such treasures, so thankyou very much for your time, effort and thoughtfulness, it is much appreciated.
Comment: Audrey - thanks so much for the shopping bags. I am always adding to my collection as I never seem to remember to put them in my car when I go for groceries. These will certainly help! In the states, most places are offering reusable bags, but there have been few outright bans of the plastic bags - San Francisco being one city that has banned them. The idea you mentioned of charging for plastic bags is a good one - some stores here will give you 5 or 10 cents credit per bag if you bring your own. Let's hope it all helps the environment!!
Comment: Wow - you made my day and month. Thank you so much for the cute card and extras - above and beyond. Very nice as I was feeling a little disappointed with the fact that most of my swap bot partners of late seem to be tardy... and there you were early and wonderful! Restored my faith. Cheers K
Comment: Hello Audrey, I loved the two teddy atc's, also the envelopes they were in and all the extras. One of the stickers has been put on a present which I am sending to my grand daughter in New Zealand, so it will be going back that way! What a small world! I will send you a postcard of Torquay soon, just be patient with me, I tend to take a long time to do some things, Best wishes, Cheryl
Comment: Hello Audrey,
Thank you so much for the fantastic set of "B Countries" ATC you created for me as part of the "B Countries ATC" swap. I love the presentation of the ATCs. Each had its own envelope, each had a sheet of information about the country and then the best was each ATC. I love the beautiful pictures you found for each country and the silver border. I am excited to add your ATCs to my personal ATC collection and more specifically to the A-Z Countries ATCs collection. I look forward to swapping with you in the future. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Many, many thanks for your thoughtful package, peachynook, and the selection of extras. They were just wonderful and a couple of the larger stickers have already been used to decorate a package to someone else as I didn't have any! Thanks for your note, it's nice to know the bracelet is still a hit - I thought it rather pretty myself - if only I wore pink!! Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you Audrey. Your package arrived on Friday. I loved your card and the way you used the fancy scissors on all the layers. I also loved your ATC cards in that you took the time to use the tea pots and cats, that I collect and love.
I do not understand why the PO, indicated that I had moved and returned your package to you. I would like to think with a package from so far away that they would have looked at it a swcond time. So sorry about this.
Comment: Thanks for your postcard - loved it! (Note: When you send a swap, please be sure to include what swap it is for - makes it easier for us to find you so that we can leave you a rating or note that we have successfully received your swap. :)) Thanks again!
Comment: i adore my little box of goodies, and im giving you a heart because when i got to the bottom of the envelope and found the sharks footy card, i cracked up! (i use to be so in love with Andrew Ettinghousen)! a little humour is good!! thanks x
