Comment: I received your ATC and the one your young son made, too! I love them both! I don't have enough experience yet with the ninth Doctor - need more! I've also been recently watching some of the earliest Doctor Who shows (the first, second and third Doctor), and I'm finding that I love them as much as the more modern Doctors. Each has their own quirks and appeals! I'm glad, too, that your son is another new fan! Thanks for sending!
Comment: Thank you! Your stamps and envelope look lovely and I like that you especially included the fox! It's the prettiest mail I've had in a while! I've never heard the story of the Little Prince but I want to now :)
Comment: **10 STAR SWAP****** What a terrific package!!! From the outside of the box and the hilarious label and cute tape to the awesome contents, this was a really remarkable swap!! I ADORE these handmade stamps, you did an awesome job!! I love these little tins and everything in them. Big thank you to your son, tell him he did a great job on the pin! I love the cupcake stars and the garland too. The journal is perfect and will most certainly be used! You were extremely generous and this is a delightful package, one of the best swaps I have ever received, really!! Thank you, thank you!!
Response: Awww - thank you so much for your kind words! So glad everything was well received! Jakob is very proud of your praise but he is not happy that you like the stamps - he hoped you hate them and send them back, haha! Guess I have to make a second batch....
Comment: Thank you so very much for everything in the bag, it was so much fun opening it up! I loved the "specimens" especially the "fairy eggs" They must've been duds because they opened on their way overseas and didn't hatch, so that's a good thing. Everything was great, I'd give you more hearts if I could! :)
Comment: The improvised envelope is considered mailart (so much nicer than a plain, white envelope)! So that was a great bonus besides an extra zine made by your son. I hope you had a pleasant vacation!
Comment: Wow! I got TWO Zines! The one that your son Jakob made is darling! Thanks for the translation! Now I can make a stamp bunting! Tell him Thanks so much! I love the idea of a combination craft and PO! I wonder if my PO would go for that? And the free mail art machine! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: WOW! I love your colorful zine and the gorgeous stamps and the beautiful mini-postcards! My girls and I even loved the little "special handling" note on the front of the envelope. (And of course, I loved the Tennant label!) Thank you so much for a wonderful, thoughtful swap!
Comment: Thank you so, so much for such an amazing swap. Really, you went above and beyond. I am hard pressed to say what was my favorite - it was like opening up a treasure trove of fond memories from both shows. Sheppard's wrist bands! The package just to tease McKay! My very own Stargate! (That is absolutely going in a place of honor once I get it set up.) I love the t-shirt and my beautiful Athosian mug and the stargate confessions - I had no idea Finn from Glee was one of the Genii. I had to go rewatch the Storm! Thank you so much for everything. You are amazing and deserve all the hearts ever!
Response: Haha, we sure had the same reaction when reading about Finn (Corey) being the Genii torturing McKay: I sat down and watched the episode again. And I had to smirk through every scene :o) Very inappropriate!
Glad you like your Swap-Package, have fun with it!
Comment: Yay! This arrived a few days ago! Your boy did a great job on his zine - the girls and I were very impressed with his Hong Kong Phooey! ;D The extras were completely unnecessary but very much appreciated. The girls especially love the sparkly winged stickers. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad it finally arrived! And for the sparkly stickers - Jakob raided our stash until he found some reeeeeally girlish ones :o)
Comment: I got your package the other day and I was stunned. Really, you went above and beyond! I loved all of the small touches you added and I'm wearing the earrings right now. Seriously, my jaw dropped. :) Also, I'm really glad your son helped you. It made the package so much more special. Please tell him thank you for me! I love the wand he made and love that he sent me one of his legos!! Thank you for the bag, and here are some extra hearts since they will only let me give you one officially! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: I translated your rating to my little boy and he is so proud - thanx for your nice words! Also he exclaimed: "Look, she sent us mice!" when he saw your extra-hearts *g* He loves mice, so that's another win, haha. I'm glad you enjoyed what we sent and seeing you make jewellry it's so nice that you speak kindly of my amateurish first attempts on beading :o) Again, thanx!
Comment: Wow, this was absolutely fantastic! I feel extremely honored to have been your swap partner!
This cool, new thing happened to me. There was a key in my PO Box with a locker number. When I opened that door I got your package. It was this wonderful event that completely made my day.
Seriously, thank you!
Response: Wow, that sounds so Harry-Potterish (is this a word?) I have this picture in my head of a tiny winged key fluttering through your postbox - wish our Postalservice would do this, I only imagine the antsy feeling you have when you open the locker and get your surprise package! So cool!
Comment: Oh my Gosh!!!! WOW!!!! I am completely thrilled and happy with your choice for this swap!!!! I wanted this zine so bad!!!! I have thought about buying it so many times, but just didn't. Thanks very much for purchasing this for me!!!! I love it and will spend hours reading through it!!! You're the best partner. I would give you 5 hearts if I could!!!!
Comment: Wow, what a colorful and timely minizine! The official reviewer (my daughter) said, "It is colorful and very interesting," and I agree. My favorite pages are the sauna, the cover picture, Oceanman, and the tent in the backyard. I have to say that bad guys slipping in slime sounds like fun, too. We are going to have to check out the playlist music :) My daughter is working on her non-glued minizine, but I can't tell you what she is writing, or it wouldn't be a surprise!
Comment: STUPENDOUS! This was an amazing package! I love everything you and your son put together for me. Magazine! Magnets! Buttons! Notepads! Matchbook! Cough drops! Recipes & drink stirrers! I even adore the hat (I exclaimed "a hat!" out loud when I realized what it was). The Band-aids are a hoot. And the cards are fantastic as well-I was watching "A Fistful of Datas" when I was opening the package and one of the cards was for the episode. How perfect! Thank you so much for everything!
Response: I had to translate your rating for my son and he was thrilled that you referred to his hat :o) Glad you liked your package, it was fun to put together!
Comment: Hi, today one of the sticker sets arrived, I don't know if it's the resend or the first one. It's a cute tin with vintage Europe stamp stickers. Thank you so much, love it! :) I will send you a message when the other package arrives. :)
Comment: Mello! YAY! An orange ink pad! Just what I really wanted, seriously!! It didn't come with a note but I contacted her. Then she said it did come with one, lol. Anyhow, thanks so much!
Response: Ah, what is it with the etsy-sellers these days? You really have to activate your spidey-senses to find out who sent you a gift from your faves......Glad you enjoyed this one - it was one of the not so creepy things on your list :o)
Comment: beautiful beautiful print, and thanks for the bonus editioned notepad/handmade book! It really gives me some ideas for the future for prints of mine...
I hope that next time we organise something we'll be able to share it again...
Comment: Ich bedanke mich! What a wonderful, thoughtful, creative and colorful package! I used to have some Hildegard von Bingen music in high school, and there was a story about her on the radio. Makes me want to explore her life and music more again! We are very excited about the honey, spices, biscuits, soap, herbs, coffee, and raspberries, and the candle and snowman are so cheerful and beautiful to decorate our home with! The whole family was intrigued by the box, and we learned a bit about your home area, which is really exciting!
Comment: Melanie...WOW! What a wonderful package! Thank you so much for everything! I can totally use the cute Rudolph notepad, the ornaments are beautiful, and the frosty postcards are great! I especially love the â€˜belle & booâ€™ one - I've put it in a frame and it is now sitting on my desk :) Also, I LOVE the handmade snowman! He is sooo cute! My mum commented that she loves how you painted the carrot nose upwards instead of downwards...it gives his whole face such a cute expression! He too is now sitting propped up on my desk with all my other Christmas decorations :) Thank you for such a thoughtful swap. Wishing you the best Christmas possible! Love from Australia, Margarita x
Response: So happy you liked everything - I just loved the idea of sending you some frosty things and I'm glad you enjoy them, regardless of your summerheat :o)
Comment: What an amazing swap! I really enjoy your print, the colors are wonderful and your paper is really nice! And thank you for the great little notebook, I'm definitely going to be using it! I love that you printed on that as well!
Response: I played around with the colors, tried different colorschemes, but I liked this one best. Happy you like it, too! And the motive just had to be printed on a journal......
Comment: Thank you for the amazing box of goodies. All I want to do today is create but housework first! Love the tape, very hard to find in my rural area. The markers look amazing and anxious to try all the new markers. Thank you again and wishing you an amazing holiday. Hugs, Mona
Response: Hope you can find some time to create - glad you liked the Package! Happy Holidays to you, too!
Comment: Tausend Dank fÃ¼r das Ã¼beraus groÃŸartige PÃ¤ckchen, liebe Mello! Die kleine Maus ist so dermaÃŸen sÃ¼ÃŸ geworden. Und mit allen anderen Sachen hast du, wie immer, auch absolut meinen Geschmack getroffen. Ich bin schwer begeistert und freue mich total!
Comment: Thank you so much! This was an amazing package to receive and all of us are absolutely delighted with what you sent :) Noel couldn't believe it when I presented him with all of his goodies, he really loved the little map notebooks ( so cute, I love them too!) and he's started the Haribo already. Pandora said "wow" as we pulled each item out. She didn't stop smiling and decided to hold on to the Lipbalm for herself! Thank you again for this extra special package x
Response: o.O I can't believe it was already delivered to you! I just sent this of on monday! I just talked to a friend in the UK and complained that between Germany and the UK it took up to 4 weeks to reach the recipient - even our postcards from scotland took that long!
Anyways, I'm glad I could make your family happy - that's what this was about, right?
Comment: A box of happiness arrived today! Even the box was cute and made me smile. Thank you so much for the huge assortments of candies (the Kinder Eggs came through just fine...YAY!). And I want to thank you for the Kaiserslautern tote bag and magnet. I never thought to pick up a souvenir from the place I actually lived and have regretted that for a long time. You are awesome! I am happy as a clam.
Response: So glad the Kindereggs where hidden enough within the other Candy :o) Watch out for the second Box! Oh, and whenever you want something from here - souvenir or old memories, just PM!
Comment: How could any swapper be kinder than this one?! Not only did you mail my swap twice after the first was lost in the mail, but you also sent me an awesome gift as I was waiting! I absolutely love the snowman you carved and painted. I don't care that it's summer...I am still displaying him! And the bird you included as well is gorgeous. I can't tell you how wonderful you are!!! Thank you so much.
Response: Huh, you actually got me blushing here.....Thanx for the kind words and the heart! Glad you finally got your swap!
Comment: Eek! So Sorry it took forever to rate you on this! I totally adore the package - ESPECIALLY the little owl notepad. Soooo cute. The candies are yummy and everything is exactly to my taste! Plus the little mouse plushie is ridiculously adorable. Thank you!!! :) You rock, Birdie!
Comment: What a great swap! Thank you so much, Melanie...I love it all! (But especially the notebook and sneaker keychain! :) This was a very happy mail! Where did you get the snail mail label? And the other sticker on it--the directions for the postman not to....?
Response: I'm not sure wich label I used on your package, but it was either from nutandbee via etsy or from a stickerbook of thesmallobject, who also has a shop on etsy. The book can be purchased via amazon. The Postmanlabel was purchased via etsy, too, but I can't find the seller right now.....
Glad you liked everything, your profile frightened me a bit :o)
Comment: Wow, what a fun package for A. to open!! The disco top spaceship has been playing non-stop for a little while now, and the Playmobil guy is so cool! She loves everything (even down to the german newspaper used for packaging!) and is in total over-the-top package heaven - thank you, thank you!!! <3
Comment: Thanks, Melanie! I adore the earrings! You hit the nail right on the head with two of my favorite things right now: little red riding hood and earrings! You're awesome!
Response: That was an easy desicion - they are made by a dear friend of mine and when I saw them in your faves I just had to get them for you! Oh and thank you so much for adding the 200th heart to my rating-profile <3
Comment: Oh my goodness, I wish I could give you more hearts! This was an absolute delight! Every piece put into this swap was very special and thoughtful, and thank you so much for taking the time to translate the directions on the cake mix. It was comforting to know you considered my allergies when shopping for this :) and most mixes here are the same as well with the "may contain" so it was no problem. I can't wait to try out the cake mix and use all the little bits. Thank you so very much, this was just splendid ^_^
Response: Wow, this one travelled really fast! Glad you liked everything - have a great time with all the goodies!
Comment: Oh my goodness! What a great book. I love the general "shipping" theme - from the art on the covers to the postal stamps - squee! I already know what I am using this for :) Thank you for a wonderful swap. This really made my day brighter.
Response: So glad it arrived safe and in one piece! I'd love to see a pic if you ever find the time to upload one - hope it has some nice dents and scars from it's journey! I was kind of dissapointed that the one I received as of yet arrived here like new - the postal service didn't even stamp the postage :o(
Comment: Wow! This trade made me grin. First thing I saw was the machine stitched map envelope. So cute. I'll definitely be reusing that one! Then I saw your son's penguin and I LOVE IT!! He is quite the artist. You can let him know that I will be hanging it up in my classroom for all of my art students to see. Finally I saw the cute penguin key chain. Aww, another treasure. I love his little blue eyes and the tiny feet. Thank you! Edited 2/9 to add: Yes, I noticed that the map was from the correct part of the world, but I figured you (Mello) were the one who had planned that. Kudos to Jakob for his attention to detail!
Response: Jakob is seriously stunned that you want to display his Penguin in an art classroom! I'm glad you liked all the aspects of this swap - Jakob wants to make sure you realized that we sent the penguins in an Southpole-envelope - he raided an old atlas to find the right side of the earth :o)
Comment: My post office has been closed for a week but now I have finally been able to pick up my swap! Yay! Such a great parcel, THANK YOU! I really like it all. The coasters I actually needed and they are perfect for me. The tin is awesome, the chococolate is gone! The swap just made my day. HUGS!
Comment: Oh how I have loved loved loved opening each and every gift you sent me for this swap! It was extra special indeed! Every package was exactly something I adored. I especially loved the advent book of pictures that I got to use every day! I saved all of them to use again next year!! Thank you for the beautiful wrappings, and cute tags, I love that Jakob helped. We have eaten the chocolates, they were super yummy. I can't wait to use my new farbenmix ribbon, and the mushrooms and deco tape and all the pretty papers from the ikea set!!Thank you for making my December so wonderful! xox
Comment: I LOVE my new rubberstamp!!! Who doesn't love this image, women rock! Thanks so much darlin! Aww, thanks so much for the Angelina Film too! This stuff is soooo neat! I can't say thanks enough Melanie:)
Comment: Oh, du meine GÃ¼te, Mello! Wahnsinn! Ich freu mich irre Ã¼ber diese entzÃ¼ckenden VÃ¶gel. Ich hab erst gedacht, die wÃ¤ren aus meinen Etsy Favoriten (Da hatte ich mal ganz Ã¤hnliche, die nun aber irgendwie verschwunden sind.). Unfassbar, dass du mir solche gemacht hast. Total schÃ¶n! Ich muss mal schauen, ob ich das mit dem Mobile schaffe, sonst werden es AnhÃ¤nger.
Das Buch und das Masking Tape sind natÃ¼rlich auch der Knaller.
Oh, ich muss mich selbst fÃ¼r die fabelhafte Idee mit diesem Swap loben. Besser hÃ¤tte es fÃ¼r mich gar nicht enden kÃ¶nnen. 1000 Dank!!!
Response: Hu, da bin ich jetzt auch gerade Ã¼berrascht, dass die VÃ¶gelchen nicht mehr in deinen Favorites zu finden sind - hab all Seiten noch mal durchgesehen.....Auf jeden Fall waren sie bis vor wenigen Tagen noch da, sonst wÃ¤re ich nicht auf die Idee gekommen. Hoffe das klappt mit dem Mobile - ich hatte Angst dass die sich verknuddeln beim Verpacken. Ich war Ã¼brigens auch ganz zufrieden mit deiner Swapidee *g*
Comment: This is by far the coolest package I've received on SwapBot! Thanks so much for spending the time to read my profile and put together a package full of comfort and happiness that would really brighten up the cold winter days ahead. Your package truly made my day, and was more than worth the wait. :) *Hugs*,*~ Alayna
Response: So glad you like it! I was worried, as I know nothing about being "Feminine flamboyant" - I'm more of a tomboy, so I really was worried not to meet your likes.....
Comment: ♥ -lichen Dank, liebe Mello und lieber Jakob! Die nÃ¤chsten Wochenenden werden nun ganz sicher mit einem wirklich tollen FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck starten. Mit selbstgemachter (super!) und franzÃ¶sischer Marmelade, Zeitschrift, Musik, einem neuen witzigen FrÃ¼hstÃ¼cksbrett und Kaffeesatzlesen. Ich freu mich schon jetzt total!
Comment: Oh my god! Are you kidding me?? The complete post cards from Penguin book collection! This is the most amazing and original gift ever!! This is, I am , well, speechless! :) Truly amazing!!!!! You are amazing! Amazing!!!
Response: Well, I was looking for the ideal gift - it just seemed to be that, right?
And what is it with the postal service these days? Just a week til you received it? What happened to eight weeks delivery time, huh?
Comment: AHAHAH! Duh, now I know what swap it was for!!! I just love this towel, its soooo funny!!! Everyone around here has gotten a huge kick out of it because we have so many cats! Thanks so much!
Response: When I saw you where my partner again I first thought "OMG! The gal with the creepy faves again!" Then I saw this hilarious Towel and was greatly reliefed that you have funny things there, too :o)
Comment: Thank you seems so inadequate for such an amazing swap package! I adore it all! Please be sure to tell Jakob thank you for the great advice he gave you concerning what is best about summer :) The bag is wonderful!! I love it so much! The contents are so fun, thoughtful, wonderful--I can't wait to use everything!! You have completely spoiled me!!
Comment: 'Cause I'mma dancin with my se-elf uh, uh oh oh" OMG, I love me some Billy Idol! I love the seller you chose too, I have some of his prints already;) I get to see Billy Idol this year in concert too! Thanks so much!
Response: Uhm, there should have been some Kurt Kobain as well.....? No? I would need to contact the seller if he went missing :o)
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package! You had it wrapped so beautifully that if it would have been empty it still would have been a treat! I like your sticker for the mailman. Did you make those yourself? What a neat idea! I can't believe how much stuff you put in that box. My grandchildren will enjoy helping me use all of it! Thanks again for the WONDERFUL package!!! :)
Response: Glad you liked everything - the stickers where purchased from Etsy, but you can easily make them yourself (Guess that's what I will do once they are used up) Hope you and your Grandchildren have fun with all the cupcake goodness!
Comment: Hi Melanie, your magazines came in while I was out of town. Thank you so, so, so much. I love "Somerset Studio." And thank you for the extra mag, certainly unexpected. Bless your heart.
Coleen in Ukraine
Comment: Melanie - Thank you so very much for the fabulous swap! I adore the tree stuffie necklace, and the little nest could not have been any more perfect for the theme!! Thanks again, I'm super glad to have gotten you as a partner! â™¥
Comment: Thanks for the amazing LP! The slippers are adorable, and I love the little glass mushroom and crafting goodies. My favorite though, was your note. I will be sure to throw your penny into the fountain for you :)
Response: Wow, that one travelled quick! Thanx for the penny throwing and the nice rating!
Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCHHHHHH !! first of all, the package was so ADORABLE ! i couldn't help but smile when i picked it up from the post office today ! it was a tad tricky to open (; but it was so worth it !! thank you so much ! i'm so glad i finally got these ! ^_____^
Response: Just came home from a short holiday - so happy to find your rating! Finally it arrived! Have fun with the magazines and maybe the lost parcel arrives one day.....
Comment: Also ich, liebe Melanie, bin SEHR zufrieden mit deiner Auswahl, also mach dir da mal gar keine Sorgen. :)) MIt dem masking tape alleine hÃ¤ttest du mich schon glÃ¼cklich gemacht, aber auch die Schnittmuster-CD ist total spannend und die Backmischung wird sicher nicht alt werden. Vielen lieben Dank!
Response: Puh, da bin ich aber erleichtert! Viel SpaÃŸ mit dem PÃ¤ckchen und vielen Dank fÃ¼r mein 150stes Herzchen :o)
Comment: Awesome awesome swap, and a very generous one too! I really love everything you sent me. I already ate the chocolate :) I love the edible items, and all the crafty items too. The book is amazing! Thank you! And the lego icecube tray from my wishlist! And everything else too!! You sent me a really perfect package. Thank you so so much!!
Response: Yay! It arrived! And under the 8 week Timelimit :o)
Comment: Thanks so much for the box of goodies!!! Those Kinder Hippos are expensive here, and I'd never tried the Bueno or that flavor of Ritter before - very nice. The mango roll-ups are interesting, too - I've been snacking on them at work. Very good choices, thanks again.
Comment: Melanie!!! I'm going to assume that you are 'MelloErg' on Etsy? I received a FANTASTIC 'Rebel Yell' photograph!!! YAYAAY! I love this artists work and I was hoping someone would purchase a print! You did!!! It is very high quality and very securely packaged! I was so thrilled I went and bought two more!!! Thanks so very much!!! (If you respond to this, I won't get the notification:( I hope this was from you;) )
Response: Yeah, that was from me - I asked to put in a note that it was from me and for the Swap, but well.... Glad I could make your day! Hugs!
Comment: i ABSOLUTELY LOVE my goodies from etsy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she sent such a nicely package. Thank you for this swap, hope we can continue to be friends!!!!!! Thanks again a million times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Response: Glad we worked everything out right!
I just checked and your links still wouldn't work - better try to fix this if you plan to participate in oncoming Etsy-Swaps. And it's so much fun!
Comment: Liebe verrÃ¼ckte Mello, herzlichen Dank fÃ¼r das groÃŸartige PÃ¤ckchen! Die Socken sind fantastisch und passen wie angegossen. Das Buch und die anderen Dinge zum NÃ¤hen kÃ¶nnten nicht besser sein. Ich freu mich schon auf's SchmÃ¶kern, Planen und Umsetzen! Tja, und dann noch die ganzen anderen Sachen... Meine GÃ¼te, das ist wie vorzeitiges Weihnachten. Danke dir!!!
Comment: My Son loved everything you sent and the CD worked great, I didn't have a problem with anything you sent as it was all to his liking etc. He did mention about the amount of items he received from you and that you must be a really lovely lady.
Comment: Oh my goodness Mello, you really spoiled me! i just love everything in this package! thank so much for the homemade pocky (it looks and taste so awesome too! much better than the store bought one), chocolate cookies and the gifts are just so amazing! i wanted that Em & Sprout t-shirt and scallop punch for SO long! thanks so much my dear!! This really made these grey days brighter! xoxox
Comment: I just want to say thank you for the wonderful package waiting for me after a long drive home from our vacation. I went to the post office today to pick it up and was delighted with the batik bag you made (already transferred my goodies into it from the regular bag), as well as all of the wonderful German charms you sent with it. I truly appreciate the thought you put into this swap. It was well worth the wait! Happy Holidays!
Response: So glad it arrived finally and that you like it! I was still worried :o) Enjoy the Package and have a great Christmas!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful packages - they both came today. I'm soooo looking forward to sampling everything - it all looks so good! I have a huge smile on face - thanks again for another fantastic swap. :)
Comment: Danke fÃ¼r die vielen tollen Back-SchÃ¤tze :) Die Maus-Kekse sind super und ich liebe diese RUF-Serie - ich hab letzte Woche gerade die letzte Portion Maus-Pudding vernichtet *g* Die vielen Dekostreusel machen groÃŸe Lust aufs Backen..das Buch auch :) RiesengroÃŸes DankeschÃ¶n!
EDIT (19.2.): Die sÃ¼ÃŸe Karte kam nun auch an, mit wunderschÃ¶nen Extras :) DankeschÃ¶n!
Comment: I was knocked off my feet by this package! Thank you so so much - I feel terribly spoilt! The teatowel is gorgeous - the gingerbread was a fabulous dessert - the chocolate bar and hot choc has been hidden from the kids - the bath smellies are waiting for me - and the little apple board is in the kitchen - DD cant wait to get baking with the cake cases! So you can see, we found it all wonderful - thank you again for being SO kind :)
Comment: Mello I love the xmas goodies. Thank you so much for a wonderful letter with all the details of your traditions. I'm looking forward to making the cookies with my sister and enjoying the spices in wine as we do. Thanks so much! Merry Xmas to you and your family!
Comment: Oh boy ! You really went overboard on this swap. thank you for all the goodies : I love them all: the mug, the socks (my first homemade pair ! :o) ), the chocolates, the books, ... Thank you for making my fall really cosy :o)
Comment: Hi, Melanie,
I love your name, my oldest daughter is named Melanie, it is a lovely name!!
thank you SO very much for the lovely swap, the bandaids are adorable (I loved the Pinnochio ones...I haven't seen the old-fashioned Pinnochio in years!) and the little pouch, I love it!! (I laughed when I read your comment about not being good at zippers, because I was thinking how well you sewed the zipper before I read that!! You are very good with sewing..!) You really went over and above, this was a lovely swap, so many bandaids, so little time..hahahaha...
Thank you again....you are awesome!
--Your swap pal,

Response: Im Ernst: Ich hatte alles zugeklebt und Adressetikett schon drauf als ich gemerkt hab, dass ich was vergessen habe rein zu tun - hab das PÃ¤ckchen am Boden nochmal aufgeschnitten und ein bisschen gequetscht in der Hoffnung das alles heil bleibt :o)
Comment: WOW. Wow!!!! This was the most fun and fabulous package I've received. I love every single thing you sent me. All of it! And the package seemed bottomless--you filled it with SO MANY sweet goodies! I just don't know how to thank you. You are truly a wonderful swapper.
p.s. the yarn and the pin are just lovely. I'm right now brainstorming a project for it.
Response: So glad you enjoyed the "incomplete" Package - guess what: The missing Etsy order showed up just Yesterday! Will try to send it out at the weekend (the days are crowded this week, and a birthdayparty with 4 year old kiddos on Saturday.....)
Comment: WOW!!! What a fantastic package. It is so loaded with stuff that I don't know where to start. The kids are loving the cansy (me too!), the towel, the notebook, the cup (my favorite) and just every little piece. You are a very generous swapper and I am so lucky to have had you as a partner. Hugs & 1000 Hearts. Mona
Comment: Thank you sooo much for the awesome package you sent. I love everything you picked out for me : the comic, the spices (just the smell is already delicious), the ribbons (I had been looking for those a couple of months back), the bird bad spatz, the magnet and the extra fabric. I'd give you dozens of hearts if I could. Thanks for everything
Comment: OMG....I sure wish I could give you more hearts!!!! This is one of the most exciting packages I've ever received!!! The fabric is absolutely beautiful...and you sent so much...1 1/2 yards....DEARLY LOVE IT!!! Gosh, the bath salts smell SOOOO GOOOD...can't hardly wait for that long, ralaxing soak:))) Well, everything is just WONDERFUL!!! I just can't think you enough:)))) My gosh...feels like Christmas:)))
Comment: OMG ... I didn't jump up and down, but ... well OK, I admit I was childishly excited when I opened your box and found the most adorable unazukin ! Thank you so very much ! I had trouble too sending only 1 item but your choice was perfect ! Hearts to you !!
Comment: WOW! We just rec'd your package today and it was so much fun to open!! You sent such great things for Jacob! You got everything right on the money too... he brushes his teeth like 5 times a day, so the toothpaste will come in handy! You are an AWESOME swap partner! I wish I could give you ten hearts!!
Comment: Absolutely wonderful packages! You really went above and beyond with this swap and I really appreciate it! Thank-you so much and I know I look forward to using the goodies to help me de-stress after a bad day!
Comment: What a wonderful package! I love the color choice! I can make my doggie a bandanna with the pawprint fabric. Thanks for the Pooh and Eeyore stickers - I didn't have any of those. Everything is great and I appreciate it all.
Comment: Thank you so much :) When I opened the package I felt like squealing like girls in American reality shows (you know, OMG!!!!!), thank you for a great swap. I love with that you've looked at my profile and the hedgehog ribbon is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time :) Thank you!
Response: So glad you liked everything - I was worried the Hedgie-Ribbon was to cutesy.....It's one of my favorites, too!
Comment: Hi Melanie, thanks so much for all the magazines! You deserve lots of hearts or being so generous. They are all really interesting and I have a friend who speaks fluent German so I'm going to ask her to help me with the knitting patterns - the designs are more inspiring than a lot of the stuff I can get here. Thanks again!
Comment: WOOHOO! I love the package you sent especially the mushroom/hedgie ribbon! Thanks so much for the fun little clicker toy and the awesome buttons. The fabric is lovely as well, I love polka dots and green so they are a perfect match.
Comment: PERFECT PACKAGE!!! Love it- everything is wonderful. Thank you for the eggs- I adore them- already put them on the mantel. So sweet of you. Hope to swap with you again in the future.
Thank you again and take care!!
Comment: My boys loved the package! I don't think they could pick out a favorite thing, lol. Chris loves the snacks. He also really enjoyed the dinosaur postcard - that really excited him. I think Logan's favorite thing is the balls ;) Him and Chris are fighting over them LOL

Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you! An enormous box of scrummy Milka landed on my doorstep today! I now have to think of a good hiding place so it's not all eaten at once! I'd love to take your offer up of another Milka swap for Christmas if the offer still stands - as I know it will all be long gone by then!! PS I agree that the Tricoleur (sp?) is yummy!
Comment: Ever since the Etsy favorites swaps started, I've hoped someone would get me a food treat, and you did! My little cake is soooo decadent and yummy. Thanks! ++ I was so surprised to receive the zines in the mail today. They're great! You are so generous!
Response: So happy everything arrived! I thought you could munch the Cakester while browsing through the Zines....guess the Zines didn't make it in time..... :o)
Comment: Thank you so much! Penelope loves her new toy. I received the package today! Thanks for everything! I am so excited to try all the treats. It looks like my poultry powder was confiscated my customs. They put a note in thebox saying that some meat products may be tainted or something. oh well...
Response: Oh no, customes striked again! I can't believe they took this off the parcel! This was just Chicken Seasoning, no piece of meat in there! Well, maybe the guys have chicken for dinner tonight.... :o)
Comment: Melanie deserves a bazillion hearts. I received an amazing package for my son - she was way to generous and I completely forgot to record it hence the delayed rating. She has been so patient and kept wonderful communication with me until I realized I had the package the entire time. She is an amazing partner !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for such fantastic parcels! Stefanos was delighted and said to make sure I gave you loads of hearts! He really loved the Bart shower gel!! Thank you for the little extras for both Thalia and myself! A really great swap!!
Response: So glad finally everything arrived and the little man likes everything. I was so sure the Bart Shower Gel was worth the wait, looks like Stefanos agrees with me :o)
Comment: Hi Melanie! Looks like it takes around the same time from Germany to Singapore as from Singapore to Germany! xD I loveddddd all the cute pink Diddl goodies, especially the luggage label. Thank you!!! :)
Response: So glad it made it to you! I was starting to get worried....can't believe how slow postal service can be! I'm so happy you liked everything, tried to make it as much Diddlina as possible...though I never expected the Luggage label to be the big hit :o)
Comment: If I could give you a gazillion hearts, I would...What a great package!...and sooooooo many extras!...You rock!...I don't know what I like the best, so you'll just have to settle for me loving it all...Thanks so much for a lovely package!...Hope to get YOU as a partner sometime!
Response: So glad you like everything! Hope your fiance also enjoyed the variety of stamps I covered the envie with :o)
Comment: WOW!! Such a lovely, thoughtful package--way beyond, with perfectly chosen things. I was absolutely thrilled to receive it. If I could give you a hundred hearts, I would! Thank you so, so much! You really made my day!

Comment: Supertolle Sachen hast Du da zusammengestellt, vieeelen Dank! Deine Gegend kenne ich bislang noch gar nicht, aber Dein PÃ¤ckchen macht mich sehr neugierig. Und wenn mein Mann hÃ¶rt, dass es dort guten Wein gibt... *g*.
Vielen lieben Dank!

Comment: Thank you for a wonderful package! I am sipping my cup of Ovomaltine right now, and the extra tea and polymer clay cane are very mcuh appreciated. Pretty good for a first cane! You should have seen mine!
Response: Wow, that was quicker than I expected! Enjoy all your drinks, and if you ever use my cane in a project, I'd loooove to see some pictures of it! Always glad to be your personal Ovomaltine-Dealer!
Comment: Yay!!! The second box arrived today and I am so happy and excited! Thank you so much for sending such a wonderful variety of chocolate. I had no idea Milka came in so many flavours. I've been "sampling" them all - they are soooo good. The postcards are really cool - I've already put them on the bulletin board on my wall. Thank you so much - what a fabulous swap. If you ever want to swap again - let me know! :)

Response: I can't believe it took so long! Hopefully the second parcel arrives quicker, as I did put some chocolate in and I guess it is already getting damn hot in TX, right? But thanx for the heart-in-advance!
Comment: I cannot say enough about how terrific this swap package was, Mello went above and beyond and sent me so much!!! Be sure to check out the Flickr site to see the photos. I loved it all Thank you again for making a wonderful package!!!! Your the best!!!!
Comment: Hi Melanie. I thought I rated you for the mosaic, but apparently something must have slipped (sorry !). Anyway, I'd like to thank you for the nice mosaic. And don't worry about the butterflies and the bees, I think these are the only insects I do approve of :o)
Comment: Wow! Thank you! This was my very first recieved swap and I am so happy with all of it! I have always loved Germany, so I am happy to have anything from there. I really love the lunchbox, and the stickers, I love it all! Thanks to your son for sharing the candy bracelets! I wish I could give you more hearts :)
Response: I'm so glad you like what I chose! And thanx for the heart! My first official Swap and already a heart, wow......
