Comment: DELICIOUS sounding recipes. i can't wait to start making them. thank you! and those strawberry recipes will come in very handy since my mom grows her own and has an overflow of them currently. we'll be baking strawberry desserts for a while and could use some new recipes. thank you! :)
Comment: Dear Sherry, can you believe that today I got your Christmas Card!!! Uncredible!!! It took more than 7 weeks to get to Ukraine!!! I really love the card...it's got such a nice style as I like! THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH. I'm sorry that you had to resend one more time.
Comment: What an absolutely true quote.
Additionally, you had no way of knowing, but the lithograph on the postcard is of the art era I was just studying in my last class, so you could not have chosen better. I love it!
Comment: ty Sherry for the diamond-shaped dishcloth (I've seen the variegated red, green, off-white yarn but not recalling name or brand), Santa foam ornament, hot choc mix (snowed here in Central TX Tues 12/2, yes snow, bee-utiful snow but i did not last, temps here are in 30s - 40s so will be enjoying the hot choc), recipe cards & Christmas card
Comment: i never heard your mom's superstition before, thank you! my teacher back in the day used to not let people sweep near her because of a superstition that if the broom swept you then you would never get married.
Comment: Thanks so much for the sweet potato recipes. I've never seen a recipe for sweet potato biscuits, but looking forward to trying them. Sweet potato crunch sounds absolutely yummy! Thanks for the extra recipe cards. Great swap!
Comment: Great recipes, the sweet potato crunch sounds like a family recipe we make every holiday except we add coconut to the top layer. And thank you so much for the recipe cards, I've been wanting some!
Comment: Hi Sherry, I love the cards you sent for this, and I do hope they were for me, you addressed the note to Wendy. But I love these cards, LOL Thanks so much, Karyn
Response: I'm so sorry about calling you Wendy. I was watching my grandkids while doing putting swap things together - must have been distracted - but I am glad you like the postcards! Thanks for the rating and star!
Comment: Thank you for the great recipes, they all look really fun and yummy. But I must admit that the Great Pumpkin Dessert is going to be tried first because I love the taste of pumpkin and recipes that use cake mixes. Thank you also for the very cute extra, it will come in handy! Anna
Comment: Being a non-American(a), I had to decide whether your P/C was from Wash DC or WA state. I decided DC would always say DC on it, so it must be State. Go me! :D Of course it really looks like Holland. Thank you. So pretty!
Comment: I have to say that your postcards are the best I've received in any swap. Thanks! And, Yes, we are neighbors-only about 40 minutes away. My daughter just moved there too so I'm in your town occasionally. Small world. Maybe we could meet sometime. Having someone to talk postcards with would be neat :)
Response: Hi! I am so happy you liked the postcards I sent you! I would love to get together sometime. Any Tues or Thurs would be great for me. I drop off and pick up my grandchildren from school everday, but on Tues and Thurs my granddaughter doesn't have preschool So I can meet you between 9:00 to 2:30 pm. Maybe we could meet for lunch sometime - or coffee - whatever you perfer. If those days aren't good for you- let me know and we can work out something. Just let me know. Thank you for the great rating!
Comment: Your card got here today and I am amazed at the way it got mangled, lol, It is really torn up but it is here and still readable, lol, so cool No don't send another one, this one is weird and cool and adds fun to my colletion, it is in it's on specail bag! Who can say that? lol ((hugs))
Response: Deb - I'm so sorry that the postal service demolished the postcard - I'd be glad to send you a new one! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: You have went waaaaaaaaaay beyond what I ever expected! I lâ™¥ve EVERYTHING! I espeically like the cupcake mints & floss. Also the fact that MOST of it was individually wrapped! I was squealing like a lil girl. I have been flaked on 3 or 4 times this month alone so I was very discouraged. But your package has reminded me of ALL the great swaps I had. Thank you so much for everything Sherry!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked your package - I had such fun picking out different things for it - and wanted you to have fun opening it. I still look for cupcake things when I go in a store - lol. I know how you feel about being flaked on. It doesn't bother me as much when it is a postcard or recipe swap, but when it's a swap similiar to this it really sucks! Well, you know if we ever get to swap again - you won''t have to worry about it. Take care!
Comment: thank you so much for the wonderful package! i LOVE the purple floral / bug fabric you chose! and thank you for the matching thread, bee buttons and ribbon! i think i'm going to make a pretty bag for myself!
Response: You are so welcome! I'm really happy you like the fabric. I thought it was so cheerful and pretty. Couldn't resist the bee buttons. That will make a beautiful bag! Enjoy! Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I've been to Safeco Field. It really is very cool. I also fund it amusing that you sent me one from Seattle because the one I sent was of Qwest Field, right next door.
Response: That is funny, because I almost sent you one of Qwest Field then changed my mind at the last minute. Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: I love it!! Bright and happy, just the way I like it :) And thanks for the cuppa joe--you know I'm gonna enjoy that!! Thanks so much :)
Response: I am so glad you like it. I looked everywhere for a fabric to fit your profile. I didn't want to get just anything. Finally a few days before the deadline my daughter asked me if I'd checked all the fabric we've been ordering from quilt sites. Duh - hit my forehead like "shoulda had a V8" and low and behold when I saw the one I made your cosy with made me smile - bright and cheery!!!
Just what I was looking for.
So lesson learned - check the stash first! :)
Comment: Oh, what fun!!!! Thank you for all the wonderful surprises that I can tell were picked out just for me! Love the retro magnet (those always make me smile!), the potholder and towel set (perfect colors!) and the RECIPE CARD SET!! That's my favorite thing. Thank you so much, and I wish I could give you a dozen hearts!
Response: You are so welcome!!! You made my day - I'm so happy that you liked it!! When I saw the recipe card set - I thought you just
HAD to have it - and it was the color I was looking for you. I really had fun putting that together for you! Hope we swap again soon! Thanks for the great rating- it's just the "icing on the cake" for me!!!
Comment: thanks so much! I am giving you a heart because my dog liked the recipe so much he ate the card! Haha! Luckily for me, he only ate the address side! Thanks!
BTW, he only ate the address side, so I can still make the recipe! Thanks for offering to resend!
Response: You're very welcome! Would you like me to resend - I would be more than happy to.
Comment: THANK YOU,THANK YOU,THANK YOU!!!!That was the best swap ever! Thanks for reading my profile and picking my favorite things ! You went overboard and I'm thrilled . I had a stressful day at work and was missing my mother in law who loved ladybugs and passed away this past summer you made my day when I saw all the ladybug stuff you are an angel . Thank again, June
Response: June! You've made my day! I was hoping you would like it. I wanted to make it as special as I could for you. I'm glad you got when you did. I had alot of fun putting it together. I hope we get a chance to swap again!!!! Thanks for the great rating.
Take care! Sherry
Comment: Thank you so very much for the gorgeous bags! The little bag is wonderful! I do enter a lot of postcard swaps so it will definetly be put to use! The postcard is awesome. It reminds me of when my children were babies and hold their mouth open just waiting for thier food (the bottle). lol. I live near a wildlife area and have often saw the bald Eagles on the ground, diving for food, or just flying in the sky. (Sigh...). Thank you so very much for your thougtfulness and caring. I give you a 100 stars even though they won't show up on your rating. :) Take care - Jackie
Response: Jackie, I am so glad you like the bags. That postcard was cute, but I guess I switched the cards. I had found a funny one involving a bear and was going to send it to you., I thought it would make you laugh. You probably wondered why I wrote what I did about laughing at the card. That one I went ahh. But, I now think you got the right one! You are so lucky to see the eagles up close. I see one once in awhile flying by. They are so beautiful. Also, thank you for the great rating!!! I give you 100 hugs!!!! Take care= hope we get a chance to swap again. Sherry
Comment: Thanks for the great recipes, blank cards, and cool magnet! :)
Response: Your very welcome! I hope you enjoy the recipes as much as my family and I do. I always make the strawberry one as soon as the first strawberries are available. So glad you like the magnet- they're fun and easy to make. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: I can't wait to try out the recipes! I am so glad you sent the magnet, handmade goodies are always welcome & your magnet is adorable!!! I actually have a metal strip on the top of my desk & I put your fairy on there so I can see it all the time! I blank recipe cards are adorable too & perfect timing since I just ran out! Thanks for everything!! <3
Response: You are very welcome! I am so glad you liked what I sent. It was a fun swap! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
