Comment: Thank you for all the cute buttons. They will be put to good use. I just finished a BUSY BOOK for our great grand daughter. The kind where they learn to zip, tie, snap, etc. Really fun but very time consuming. Thanks again.
Comment: I love your flag! It's cool to see everyone's interpretations. I love how you embroidered on the pattern of the fabric in places. Very cool! Thank you for the tea as well! I do drink lots of that and Mango Maui sounds lovely! Aloha!
Response: So glad you liked it! It's always scary doing stuff like this for someone else. You just never know if they will like it, love it, or hate it! Lol
Comment: Hi Jamie,
Thank you for the great recipes using strawberries. Will be trying your strawberry bread as it uses less ingredients than mine.
Thank you also for hosting these fun recipes swaps and the extra recipe cards.
Response: I need to thank you for joining my swap! It makes it so much more fun when we get so many different people with different cooking styles. I just love it!
Comment: Loved the fabric squares you sent. I have been collecting them for over a year. Haven't decided on a project yet....Have you? And thanks for the flower seeds too. I'll ad those to my flower garden. Have a great day every day. bearnbabs
Response: You are so welcome :)I bet you have a lot of them now! I have only been able to join one other swap with these cuts but I still have them tucked away waiting save a few I used for a prepping a Teesha Moore journal (that's still sitting unfinished haha!) I hope you find a really cool project to use them all in!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful prayer flag (& all the credit!! :D) I'm so happy your Mom enjoyed them too, indeed, prayer flags are such happy things! :) I hope more people join in in the future swaps!! p.s. Thanks for the Papaya seeds! That's fun! We will definitely grow them?
Response: Very welcome! I'm so glad that you do those swaps. I'm addicted! Haha
Comment: (It was opened at some point, probably after it entered this country. I hope you had sent the prayer flags plus one notecard only) They are beautiful! I love the look of the brocade one, & the ribbon one is sheer joy! So imaginative :) I'd love to utilize the one you sent me partially done :) :) I'm really happy we did this!
Response: Oh no! Yes I had some other randoms in there for you. Sad day! I'm very sorry :( I'm glad you like them. I just received the ones you sent me and they are so so so much better than anything that I have came up with! Lol Thank you so much for doing this swap with me :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the recipes I can't wait to try them especially the bars ! Thank you for the cards too :) Will happily send some chocolate if there is anything you wish to try - you can let me know :)
Response: I hope you enjoy them! And thank you so much! Maybe we could do a private swap sometime if you have something from Hawaii you would like to get :)
Comment: Wow I didn't realise that you are my swap partner, what a coincidence?! Thank you very much for the teas, they will be a fine addition to my collection ^^ Since we swap teas for a second swap, maybe we should start a private one. Message me if you are interested and thanks again :)
I really loved the stamp print on the envelope "Sending smiles across the miles". Great idea!
Response: I really need to start a lot of people that I swap with so I know if I am repeatedly sending to the same person. I'm so oblivious lol. I would love to do a private tea swap!
Comment: I’m so excited to try the Hawaiian Island teas you sent and perennial wildflowers are some of my fave flowers! What fun happy mail! I hope your essay writing and homework are not too taxing and you get to relax soon. ❤️
Response: And I hope you can find some quite peaceful time to enjoy that tea ;) I hope you like it!
Comment: What a great thing to find in my mailbox yesterday, a very sweet prayer flag from you.💖🌟😺🌸 Thank you, it’s perfect. Hey, you gets huge points from me for sending a flag that has cute stars on it. 🌟 ✨🌙⭐️
Response: I do what I can hahah! I'm glad you liked it!
Comment: Thanks for the recipes. My DH has been sick all week with cold/flu and I was just thinking of making some crock pot chicken soup. I've got everything on hand for the chicken tortilla soup, so I'm going to give that a try. Now I'm hoping I don't get sick.
Response: I hope you stay healthy! I also hope you enjoy the soup. It is one of my favorites :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the great sounding chicken recipes. I love love love Chicken Teriyaki but have always used store bought teriyaki sauce. I am so happy to have a homemade version now. I am going to try this tonight!
Response: It is so so good. I like to let it marinate a good 24 hours. I hope you enjoy it!
Comment: I was so excited to receive your package in the mail today! I loved everything. I especially loved the macadamia nut treats. I haven't had any since our last trip to Hawaii about 10 years ago. I also thought the package that the bath bombs came in was very cute. Thank you so much for hosting this swap and putting a big smile on my face. Happy Valentines Day! Cheers!
Response: You are so very welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely parcel :D
I had to have a chuckle when I saw the apple pie recipe, the one you included Grandma Ople Apple Pie is my favorite recipe for apple pie :D Our apple trees are still growing our apples but in another 2 months we will have fresh apples from our own trees and we will make up these pies, putting only half the sugar/butter mix inside the pies and leaving the other half in a ziplock and put them into the freezer to enjoy throughout the year. Thank you again for your thoughtful parcel :D
Response: Allrecipes.com for the win! Lol I absolutely adore that apple pie :) Sorry....maybe is would have sent a meatloaf recipe or something haha!
Comment: Yes! Small swap world :) We're having a great holiday season, thank you. We wish the same for you all. I love the wrappings and tags on the teas. I also love that you made the bookmark! Something that will get a LOT of use from me. I plan to use it to mark my place in my plannerâ™¥ I opened 21 and 22 since it arrived today and I'm super excited to try the teas. I have heard about them but never had any. I have a high school friend that lives in Kihei, HI and he works at the VA hospital. Thank you so SO Much....Happy swapping in the new year. Judy
Comment: Although Neville was our other choice, we went with Seamus for our son's name because of the explosions it felt like he was causing in there. He would have been Luna if he'd been a girl though. Thanks for the washi and a great swap.
Comment: hello dear!!! I enjoyed your tea selection so much! I've never seen the Hawaiian Island Tea before and the flavors sound so good! The pineapple waikiki looks yummy :) thanks for the extras and glad I've received my first ever mail from Hawaii :)
Response: Yay! That's what I was going for. I had a hunch Hawaiian tea would be new for most :) I really hope you enjoy them!
Comment: Wow, washi and cool teas! Thank you! I love the washi you sent me especially cactus, flamingos and pineapples! The Christmas washi is also awesome! Thank you! I can't wait to try the teas. I'll wait till the weekend when I can relax!
Comment: Thank you both for your awesome LEGO Swap! My Aiden was so excited to have mail and especially for the Lego people with extras you sent. Aiden would like to write a thank note by post if thatâ€™s acceptable. ðŸ‘ðŸ»ðŸ˜â¤ï¸
Response: That would be amazing! We are so glad he liked it!
Comment: What a nice note. I love your story of your dog. Sounds just like my Lucy when a new person arrives. She has a corner she hides in. And yes, I love going to the pumpkin patches in October. I agree, warm weather and ice cold lemonade wouldn't be right. You need hot apple cider!
Comment: Thank you for your comment on my profile! Oh you HAVE to watch the last season of Downton Abby! I'm so bummed that it's over. Yes I do love my porch. Sounds like you are enjoying yours! Ive never played Rummikub, I have to get it! Thanks! It's still hot here in North Florida. Mostly in the 80s every day here as well. I'm ready for some cooler weather! Hope you enjoy all the fun things coming up in these next few months!
Response: It's been rainy here today so maybe I might binge watch that last season if it! :) Hope you have a wonderful week!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely book mark. I don't have one like this at all :0) It is turning fall very quickly here in Cranbrook, Looooove the coulors though I would love warm weather for longer... :0)
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like it. I have plenty of warm weather here. I'm happy to share ;)
Comment: Received your squares today - thanks so much! They were supposed to be all different squares, but I'll be able to use three ol these in my grandmother's flower garden, which need 6 of the same fabric- so I'm a happy camper! (And thanks for the extras!)
Response: Oh no!!! I took the description as a mix of some different patterns as in a few different not all different. I am so very sorry! I can cut out some other ones for you and send some other patterns. Would that work?
Comment: My girlfriend and I were facetiming as I was opening your package. We always say it's a great letter if it makes you cry and it did as I read it and saw the hawaiian ornament. That was the sweetest thing I have gotten. I love hawaiian things. Hope you are enjoying your stay in Oahu. Thank you for your kind swap. Mahaloâ¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Response: You are so very welcome. I hope it brought you some good memories :)
Comment: Hey Jamie! Wow! Hawaii! My Goddaughter was just there working in some kind of farming program. I know it's beautiful there, but I would miss all things Fall ðŸ‚ðŸ‚ðŸ‚. Thanks for the great card!! And lemon bars are my fave! The bookmark too! You rock! ðŸŽƒðŸ‘»ðŸŽƒ
Response: Hawaii has been a change that's for sure! Lemon bars for the win! ðŸ¤—
