Comment: Got the resend book and can't wait to read it. LOVE the extra items you sent too. The Pooh card is awesome -
I love the old style of it. Thank you for the journal too - you did a great job, especially for re-sending.
Comment: WOW you put SO much in my GOODIE box for my babies. I could not believe all the packages that were inside that box. Of course I had to open up 2 of the 4 you sent. I could not hold back it was such a beautiful gift. I could not believe how many sqeekies there were in the for my dog. I am also, getting a new puppy soon..........and that puppy is spoiled already because of you. That puppy is going to be so confused on which toy to pick out of the bunch you sent. She will have such a variety my spoiled little girl. Also, I love the Birdie balls for my birds, and the denta bones for my dogs teeth, and the extra doggie treats. Love it, Love it, Love it................my girls are being spoiled rotten. I am leaving the other 2 packages to open up at christmas. You did an excellent job packaging each bag and then putting them inside that christmas box. My MAILMAN was like CHRISTMAS .....I laughed and said don't worry it's an EXTRA SPECIAL EARLY treat. You are a great swapper, and I am looking forward to swapping with you again. IF I can give you 10 hearts I would. HAPPY SWAPPING!
Response: Oh I am so glad you liked everything Let me know when you get your new baby and what kind she is Hugs Sheryl-Kay This makes me so happy
Comment: What a big smile you put on my face today. I couldn't believe the size of the package. I've opened a few things and I adore the ornaments - they are so nice. The notepad/mirror is going straight in my purse. I'm looking forward to opening everything else over the holidays. Thank you so much for making my day. Happy Swapping!
Response: So glad you are enjoying it
Comment: Thank you for the card, I love the birds :D
Sorry it took so long to rate your card, I couldn't find which swap your card was for and it wasn't until I had another Animal Card to rate that I saw your name in here too. Sorry.
Response: I know I need to do better on that
Merry Christmas to you and your family
Comment: Thank you very much for the nice letter. You sound like you have a really nice human mom. My mom enjoyed the the goodies and the letter too. Hope you get lots of goodies in your stocking. Merry Christmas ðŸŽ.
Response: This was fun Merry Christmas to you and your humans!
Comment: Thank you! :) Merry Christmas to you. Thank you for the little cards. My little girl and I are going to color them and use them as gift tags for my father-in-law's Christmas gifts (he's a preacher). :)
Response: I hope you both have fun!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card & coloring cards. I almost didn't know, which swap you came from or if even on swap-bot. Because you didn't put swap-bot.name of swap or your user name down on the card. Luckily I did manage to find you.
Response: I am so sorry I know how hard it is to find some one if they don't put it down! This is a good reminder to me
Comment: Hi Sheryl Kay! Got the pkg. with book. Thank you so much. I love it! Love anything to do with faeries. Be it dark or light. I can't wait to read it. Right now, I'm reading the book collection by James Patterson: The Witch & Wizard series. I've read the first & 2nd books yrs. ago,but never could find the other 3.I did finally at Amazon.Am on the 3rd one now. I started from the beginning,cause I didn't recall a lot of it. Anyway,I won't be sending this book back,no way, hee! Take care!
Response: Glad you liked it Have you ever read The books by james patterson its about kids with special powers they can fly sorry I can't think of the name but they were good
Comment: What a fantastic journal!! It is so adorable! What hard work you put into this, very nice I really love it! Thanks so much for joining Sheryl!!!! One hundred balloons and a marching band!!ðŸŽ‰ðŸ’ŸðŸ‘
Comment: OMG! What a coincidence. I cannot tell you how long I've wanted to read that book, and for whatever reason just kept not getting it. Now I know there was a reason, I was unconsciously waiting for you to send it to me. HaHa! I really cannot wait to read it, thank you so very much!!
Response: I am so glad let me know what you thought of it Tuesdays with Morrie was really good and I just finished the time keeper also good let me know Glad you wanted it
Comment: Ok :), you've got me interested :) --who is the author of breaking free--i looked it up to see if I would like it-- there are alot of books with that title :) Thank you for the beautiful homemade tags...VERY pretty... Anyhow, thank you for the great note card and note. I walked into the house with my one son after taking him to dr and he said 'holy moly, is this house clean!' I didn't know whether to laugh or worry .... I throw away soo much but still the house gets cluttered ...it actually felt good to spend some of my mem day weekend getting the house in nice order (esp. since I had 2 grandchildren spending the wkend)--the trouble is keeping it in nice order with so many people here. Have a great day
Response: Lauraine Snelling is the author sorry it took me so long to get back to you It is a really good book
Comment: Hello Sheryl-Kay! It was nice receiving your envelope in the mail today! It's my first time ever getting mail in a vellum envelope and I must say, it's a nice touch! I also really appreciate the journaling cards you sent me. They're one of my favorite papercraft items, so I will definitely put them to good use! Thank you again!
Comment: Hi Sheryl, I received my stocking stuffer that I'll open on Christmas. I love the assortment of decorated/scented mini candles. You can never go wrong in sending me an ATC...I love the snow owl. If the first swap shows up, we can make it a private swap and I'll send you a stocking stuffer and will be able to give you a second rate.
Comment: Awwww, SherylKay, I just want to hug you! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I Love your parcel to bits, I don't even know where to start. Every single piece is gorgeous. The bracelets, the shampoos .... I'm totally blown away!!!
I really hope my parcel will get there soon, too, and that I can make you smile with it, too - although I couldn't really top the huge smile you gave me today (it was much needed!). Oh, and don't be confused: I recycled the parcel you used to send your last swap to me. :)
Response: So Glad you liked it I have fun picking things out for you I put you in my daughter mode and see what they would like but I do think of a hip collage girl
Comment: Dear Sheryl, thank you very much, and I love that you enclosed surprises for Ãbel, too! :) We celebrate with the close family on 24th, eat dinner and open our gifts, but gifting is continouing as we visit grandparents on 25th and 26th. We have a nice tree, but in my country we decorate it only on 24th (before the dinner). I hope you had a nice holiday, but I know it's hard if the family lives far away. Happy New Year! :)
Response: My daughter who is in Hawaii blessed us with a baby girl Dec 24TH only 7 months till I see her:(
glad you had a nice Christmas
Comment: Oh WOW. No words. This is probably the most generous package I have ever received on SB. Thank you -- you totally made my day. Such fun stuff -- itching to get started! Thank you. Merry Christmas!
Response: So glad you liked
Comment: AAAAAAH, it arrived!!! I got your huge parcel today. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm dying of curiosity, but I will be good and save it for Christmas, I just popped it into the cupboard. I'm really looking forward to opening it and we'll be in touch. <3 EDIT: I opened my presents today when I came back (you know, because stupid me had forgotten the box :-/) and it was perfect! Just like a little second Christmas. I'm overwhelmed by your generosity and loved every single piece in the box. THANK you for making getting back to Uni more bearable! I wish you a fabulous new year and hope to stay in touch!
Response: I had to put mine up also It will make Christmas day all that much more fun!
Comment: SherylKay went above and beyond for this swap.... the first letter arrived 17 days after she mailed it. She was great in answering emails from me to ensure that we did not end up on the naughty list. She then mailed another letter out and it took 10 days to arrive. Once again I talked to her via email and she sent another letter today. Of course both envelopes arrived today after hanging out in mail world past the due date.
SherylKay did a great job stuffing my envelopes and I would recommend her to swap with over and over again.
Response: Glad they showed up so you could see I mailed them. I wonder why it took so long?
