Comment: Helene, you absolutely blew me away with your destash swap! I love it all, from the little hedgehog diecut to the vintage photo tag; the Egyptian postcards will definitely go into my postcard album, and I'm looking forward to using the paper scraps and napkins in some projects. Is the little fancy frame-like piece with the two dogs on it a stamp? I love that; it's so cute! And the bagged items - letters, stickers and food pics - are much appreciated! Even your envelope was unique! A little word of warning though: the washi tape had come loose in a few places and the envelope was partially open, but I don't think it was a big enough opening that anything was lost along the way. All in all, it was a beautiful swap and I thank you so much!!!
Comment: Wow---you went way over the 100 grams and thank you so much---your envelope arrived in a plastic Canada Post 'regret for the damage' sleeve but I am sure nothing is missing...the flap just popped open because it was so stuffed!!
Response: I am clearly not a good guesstimater! It was only one extra stamp so I went for it., so cheap to send within Canada! Enjoy!
Comment: Finally! I was a bit worried your mail could got lost but it arrived yesterday. It was stuck at the costom! :/ I love the notecards you made! They are wonderful! I can`t wait to use them!!! And thanks for the extras... :)
Response: I am glad it arrived and I am stoked you love them. Enjoy!
Comment: Beautiful backgrounds! Love them, Helene.
Response: Thank you. I always make an atc or postcard first with lots of random layering, often with the scraps of other paper crafts, and then cut the inchies. It's been really satisfying. I am pleased that you noted the backgrounds!! Thank you. Let me know if you'd ever like to do a private inchie swap!! I'll gladly make more
Comment: Thanks for the letter and the embellishments! Yours is the first ATC I've ever got! And I'm going to use those hearts in the wrapping of a present I'm sending off tomorrow.
Ps. I'm sorry your daughter wouldn't let you watch cartoons with her ;)
Response: You're welcome! Glad you can use the things I included
Comment: Thank you for the pocket letter it was lovely and full of goodies, you said it was your first pocket letter and it was amazing but I would say some of the pockets neeeded a bit more decorating because once I took out all the goodies there were some pockets which ended up being empty.
Thank you again for swapping with me
Response: Wow, I just sent that on Friday! And thank you for the tips for my future pocket letters. Very much appreciated.
Comment: Wow what a happy mail! I love the ATC and all of the other crafty bits! I will definitely be using them all! ❤ Thank you for everything!
P/S: This is one lucky mail. There was a stamp on the envelope which said it was missent to Taipei! I would be very sad if this beautiful mail went missing! Lucky it came back to me! 😃
Response: Lucky indeed! Thank you for rating,. Until next time!
Comment: Hi!! It's funny that you talked about me in you letter :p Yes it took me 5hours to match every enveloppe... read profile (English isn't my first language so it's longer for me). Thanks for everything and the letter. I fall on you few times in my swap but I think it is the first time you send me something :) Thanks for the letter. happy swapping!!
Response: Yes, I've received three swaps from you already. It was a pleasure to send one out to you. AH and yes! I did mention you in my letter. :) It took me quite some time to get all ten swaps together and out too, but it was fun! Thanks for rating, I'm sure we'll be in touch through future swaps.
Comment: Thank you for your lovely long letter. So nice to learn a bit about your life. Autumn is coming along vivid now, so enjoy the days! Thanks for the goodies, I will use them in future swaps. Perhaps some will return to you in another setting.
Response: I am surprised how few letters I have received for this swap. 6/10 swaps have arrived and only one letter! Thanks for rating. Take care!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely letter. Your chickens names made me laugh, especially chow mein!
Response: Wow! That crossed the Atlantic quicker than I think any mail I've sent has taken before ever! If I remember correctly, I sent these out less than a week ago! I am glad you enjoyed it. You are welcome! CHeers!
Comment: Not only have I enjoyed your Swap #1 and #2, I enjoyed receiving a great stuffed envelope from you! Thanks for great swaps for rebuilding my stash after being out of Swap for so long!
Response: Thanks so much and welcome back. I am new(ish) here and it's such a great community. Looking forward to future mixed media craft swaps! Let me know if you're ever up for a private swap. Cheers!
Comment: Thanks for your creative ATC's, the nicely decorated envie and the extras, Helene. I just returned home after an eclipse watching trip to North Carolina & it's been fun opening all the accumulated mail.
Response: Ohhh nice place to see the eclipse! THanks for rating, cheers!
Comment: They've arrived today!! Thank you, beautiful images! Sure took awhile but everything is in good shape. Whew! I'll be busy! Lol Thank you for hosting. :)
Response: Oh great! That was certainly an unusually long wait considering we are on the same continent! If you are ever up for a private swap of any kind in the future, I am up for it. Thanks for rating :)
Comment: I loved your stories! That's so creepy that the three of you all saw the same man 😱. Thank you for the Halloween extras, love themmm
Response: You're welcome, and thanks for rating! I am excited about this swap. Spooky stories are the best! I think there is a second similar swap started for later this August! I'm "watching" it, Cheers!
