Also, huge thanks for the lovely Degas postcard! I'm not sure if it was random or if you saw it on my profile, but he's my favorite artist :)
Response: I've never had the freeze dried ice cream before - but maybe I should try it!!! I knew from your profile that you liked art postcards - but I didn't realize that Degas was your favorite! I'm so glad I chose that one for you!!! Thanks for rating and for the heart! :)
Comment: Your last name is my favourite bird!
Ahem. Thank you for the postcard. I've learned so much about moose! I have to admit that at first I skimmed at, and read that they've been known to attack caterpillar tractors as "they've been known to attack caterpillars".....which didn't surprise me as much as amused me, so I was disappointed to see my mistake :P I hope you do get to see a moose one day. They're freaking huge!

Comment: Thanks so much Jen. It's obvious that you read my profile and put a lot of thought in what you sent. As a newbie this was a great 1st swap for me. Thanks again. Roselie
I just found out that I could add the heart. You deserved it but I missed it the first time.

Comment: Thanks for the fun package, Jen! I'm looking forward to trying out the tea and the peanut soup recipe!
Just as an FYI if you have a vegan friend/swap again - The Godiva bar has milk in it and isn't vegan. The majority of commercial caramel is made with milk as well as a lot of dark chocolate (Several companies put milk in their dark chocolates). I really appreciate your trying to send me a vegan treat, I'm just letting you know for future reference. I'll share this bar with a friend :)
Response: Oh no! I had no idea about that chocolate!!! I am so sorry!!! I hope you will enjoy the rest of the package!! That tea looked so yummy and when I bought it - the checkout girl said it is awesome and one of her favorites!!! Thank you so much for rating and for the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for the bookmarks and for the nice note included! Yes, the upcycled bookmark project is really fun, I see bookmarks now in everything TOO! It's addictive, isn't it? I'll leave some of them in the library in Gouda so they can travel through Holland (hopefully). By the way, what a nice thought to put ribbons on them in red, white and blue - the colours of our flag ;-)
Response: I'm glad you liked them! I can't wait to see if people find them and post them on the flikr site!! Thanks for rating! :)
Comment: Oh, I do not have a word for such a beautiful package!!! So neat and thoughtful. And you put it together in such nice colors...and how did you know, Jen, that I had broken my beading needle on Saturday and had no extra! And those pendants are just georgeous! Thank you very very much, it is like getting a Christmas present already! Many hearts for you!!!! And if you would like to do private swap with me I´d be very happy...
