Comment: Vielen lieben Dank fÃ¼r das Riesenpaket! Alles so schÃ¶n! Und die Eulenhandcreme ist so sÃ¼ÃŸ! Und die kleinen Pompoms! An Deinem HÃ¤uschen hab ich die schon bewundert :o) Hab mich doll gefreut!
Response: Ha, schÃ¶n! Da freu ich mich gleich mit.
Comment: Vielen Dank liebe Nicole fÃ¼r das wunderschÃ¶ne HÃ¤uschen, die tolle Auswahl an Stoffen und das Buch von meiner Amazon-Wunschliste! Ich habe mit dem "Handmade"-Teil noch nicht mal angefangen, und du schickst schon raus! Da muss ich mich ja jetzt ranhalten :o)
Response: Sehr gern geschehen, liebe Mello! Ich mag diese Swaps unheimlich gern und freu mich sehr, dass du wieder mitgemacht hast. Lass dir soviel Zeit wie du brauchst. Ich kann prima warten.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful hand-drawn, hand-lettered notebook! It arrived in perfect conditiion, and I was able to peel back the seals leaving no damage at all (I folded the tape down onto the inside of the cover rather than remove it, because I like the colour!). I will definitely use this & have much fun doing so! :D
Response: Yay! I am so happy it reached you and that you like it. This was a big challenge for me but also so much fun. Thank you again for hosting this super fun swap!
Comment: What a fantastic package and so nicely presented. Everything is so nice. .I love the paisley fabric and ribbon. The ribbon is so differnet. Love the marker, love the yarn. Just love it all! Thank you so much!
Response: I am so happy to hear that! I had a lot of fun hunting down some paisley and pastels. Happy sewing!
Comment: You made Jakob cry - he complained, that he never gets beautiful packages like that one. :o)
This is officially the most gorgeous Zipper pouch ever! Ever ever! For sure! And I love the book! Thank you so much Nicole!
Response: Mensch, eine freut sich, einer heult... wenn das mal nicht was ist! Inzwischen ist ihm sicher wieder eingefallen, dass er ja doch ab und zu sehr hÃ¼bsche Pakete bekommt, oder?
Ich freu mich jedenfalls, dass ich dir eine Freude machen konnte. Viel SpaÃŸ beim "Craften"!
Comment: Liebe Nicole! SchÃ¶ne Morgen werde ich haben und sogar ziemlich viele bis ich das ganze Oatmeal verspeisst habe. :) Vielen, vielen Dank fÃ¼r das schÃ¶ne PÃ¤ckchen, ich hatte noch nie ein Martha Stewart-Magazin *sabber*. Und erst recht vielen Dank fÃ¼r die "VerspÃ¤tungs"-EntschÃ¤digungEN! â™¥ Auch das Finchen sagt Danke und ist sehr interessiert am Catnip Spielzeug. â™¥â™¥
Comment: I would give you more than one heart if I could! Maybe a swapping medal of honor or something. You made this day a sunny summer day, even if it's raining. :D Thank you so much for the adorable (!) quilt and all the other cute stuff. *hugs*
Comment: Wow Nicole - awsome swap!!! I love it! I picked up the package a few hours ago and have already had som tea in my new cute mug (on the adorable mug rug), tried the candy (YUM) and used the lip balm. Now I'll serve some dinner for Eila on her new plate. :) Everything you sent is so perfect. HUGS!
Comment: Wonderful wonderful swap!! Thank you for such a beautiful box of awesome items. That handmade mug-rug is amazing! I"m drinking tea out of the beautiful mug right now! The chocolate is gone, I already had 2 fortune cookies, the tin and thread are lovely and the notebook made me laugh :D I love everything! A million thanks to you :)
Response: You are very welcome, Orit! I had a lot of fun putting this one together and I am really happy to hear you like(d) it all!
Comment: Nicole!!! I cannot express in writing how excited I was when the postman delivered the most beautifully wrapped box this morning! The stickers, tape, twine and tissue...and the most amazing wrapped gifts i've ever seen! All in my favourite colour too! Hehe, I had to photograph and admire the presents for ages before I even dared open them!! And the most perfect gifts they were! The masking tape and bags are beyond perfect - (I've wanted them forever!), the cookies O_o oh my!! I might cry when they are all eaten! And the kawaii is all just too wonderful! I think one day you should become a professional gift chooser/wrapper-upper! Even the notecard you wrote was beautiful. Such an amazing swap with an amazing partner! Thank you a million Nicole for making my day so happy! xxx <3
Response: :D Yay, that sounds great! I had a lot of fun this swap and your package was awesome, too!!!
Comment: Oh my! What a cute envelope I received today with the Nicole's touch! ^^ And inside, a little package so lovely wrapped. The polka dot card with the tiny heart is excellent! :D
I looove surprises! Thank you very much for such nice flower brads.
Nicole, you really are a great partner! â™¥
Comment: I saw purple polka dots when I opened my mailbox and I knew instantly it was from you :o) Thank you so much for this awesome parcel. The cushion is gorgeous. I wish I could sew like you do and I love the pendant starting kit you choose for me. Will have lots of fun with these. Hundred hearts to you.
Response: You are very welcome, Ingrid! Thank you so much for your sweet compliment on my sewing skills! I am glad you like what I made and which crafty items I got you.
Response: Liebe Domi, I am so happy to hear you like everything - especially the cd! I hope you end up very relaxed and distressed whenever you use anything form this package!
I too look forward to lots of BIRDS swaps with you.
Comment: Dear Nicole, It was a real pleasure to open your packages during the four Sundays of Advent. They were so beautifully wrapped!
I decorated my wall near my computer with your tags and your little hearts!
As I have already written, I really looove your 3 FQ, but I did not have any ideas for how I will use them. I'll show you when I know!
The last package open today is wonderful! Wooooow!!! I dreamed of having a such lantern at home. You're the good fairy who has fulfilled my wish! â™¥ Thank you very much. Viele liebe GrÃ¼ÃŸe.
Response: Coucou Domi! I'm so happy I seem to have made the right choices. Swapping with you is always so much fun!
Comment: I just had to rate this wonderful package of Christmas awesomeness, even before Christmas! I will update the comments after Christmas when all is unwrapped. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!! I am enjoying the wonderful sweet treats--I love marzipan! The garland will be so fun to decorate with (that will be soon)--I haven't seen anything quite like it before--it is just so cute and clever! I also love how everything, including the box itself, were wrapped so sweetly!
Update: Thank you so much for the wonderful Christmas surprises! I absolutely love the stamp punch!! It will be so fun to make my own little stamps out of whatever strikes my fancy :) The pincushion you made is so perfectly sweet. Someday I will need to try patchwork, but for now I get to admire your work! I also can't wait to use the Little Red Riding Hood ribbon--it is so cute!! Thanks again for an amazing swap package--everything is perfect!
Response: Wow, I am so happy you like it so far! I The garland is pretty neat, isn't it? Unfortunately not my idea but so much fun to make and so many possibilities... :D
UPDATE: Yay, you like it all! It's been a lot of fun for me, too!
Comment: WOOT! Is this happy mail heaven or what? Such a perfect swap to brighten my day. I love everything you picked for me, I really do. Sixten is trying to kill one of the toys (so it must be good) and I have the best maternity shirt ever. I could go on and on but I'm just gonna say: THANK YOU! Many hugs from you friend Em
Response: Yay, I'm glad to hear that! It's always a lot of fun to swap with you and I enjoy getting your package ready! Good to know Sixten is happy too! HUGS!
Comment: I finally got your package today. What wonderful treasures inside! â™¥ You are crazy! You sent me too much! Oh la la! I just spent over 1 hour to see everything. You chose really nice things with colors so sweet. I'll read the book again slowly after eating, with a cup of tea. The fabrics are gorgeous! I looove the little bag you've sewn with a color combo I like. And the star! What a cute decoration! I repeat once again:you are crazy! Nicole, thank you very much for bringing me much happiness today. And I'm having a lot of happiness in crafting the coming days thanks to your supplies and your book. :o)
Response: I'm happy you like it, Domi! Though I doubt you can like it as much as I liked your package. I'm so glad we got to swap with each other and I hope we will do this again some time! ♥
Comment: What a fantastic swap!! I love everything in it! You are just so talented. I love the handmade drawstring bag! The wooden hoops are awesome. I don't know what I love most - the fabric and buttons and ribbon and string or the salt and spoon. I love them all equaly :) Thank you for a really excellent swap!
Response: Yay, Orit! I'm so happy to hear that you liked it! I had so much fun with this swap and I love your thought on cooking and baking as a craft! :D

Comment: Yay - the swap arrived to brighten my day and boy did it ever! I love everything you sent me. The house is SO nice, the labels/stickers are crazy pretty, I love the lip balm, the stamp and the tape. And I think you know how I feel about the tea. A perfect swap my friend. HUGS!

Comment: Nicole I just LOVE LOVE LOVE everything you sent me in this swap! I am so excited to have a clear block so that now I can use clear stamps!

Hach, ich bin rundum glÃ¼cklich Ã¼ber dein Paket! FÃ¼hl dich gedrÃ¼ckt!!!
Response: Ohhh, das freut mich riesig! Ich musste mich sehr zusammenreiÃŸen, um die MilchtÃ¼te nicht schon vorher aufzumachen. Du musst das unbedingt sofort machen. Ich will wissen, was du bekommen hast!
Ich drÃ¼ck dich zurÃ¼ck!

Comment: Thanks for the fun package! I LOVE the pearl cotton! It is so beautiful!!!!!!! Definitely enough to make several bookmarks. :-) And the gum and candy bars look really good! The Hamburg bookmark is very cool, too. Since you sent such a nice big box of marzipan potatoes, I think I am going to share it with my knitting group - they are always complaining that I brag about my international candies but never share. :-) Anyway, thank you so much for the wonderful package!
Response: I'm so happy to hear that!!! If I'd known one hank of the pearl cotton would have been enough for a bookmark I would have sent you different color combinations! Maybe next time?! We have plenty of these!
Comment: I wish I could give you a million hearts for this! Such a sweet package. Handmade bag, rubber stamp with ink pad, tea, pocket mirror, deco tape, embellishments... It's all GREAT! Thanks Nicole, you're the best!

Comment: I love everything, and my girls flipped over the adorable hide&seek tape you sealed the box up with, they peeled it off the box and glued it onto their school book covers. Isn't that just like kids, get a present and play with the box! Thanks so much, I think pink and brown is my new favorite now, too!
Response: That's so nice to hear! And I can so understand your girls (great idea btw). I love deco tape so much... I can never get enough of it!

Comment: Wow! I love everything in this package so much. I've already dug into the chocolate marzipan and it is delicious! So much marzipan - I am thrilled. And I love the clothes pins (so sweet), the notebook (beautiful), and both postcards are going up on my red postcard board. Thank you so much!
Response: Oh, that's so great to hear! I was a little scared if I was going a bit overboard with the marzipan theme. Enjoy!
