Comment: Love all the fun stuff you sent! No worries about lack of handmade, life happens! And I enjoyed everything you sent so it's still a win situation! :-) BTW, do you have a dog? Our Yorkie was all over the package as we were opening everything! LOL
Response: No, we don't have a dog. Maybe your Yorkie was after the candy! LOL. Glad you can use everything. Great swapping with you, as always.

Comment: Thank you for the 12 days of Christmas presents!!! I can hardly wait until the 14th to start opening these, especially since there's a delicious looking, locally made, caramel chocolate bar staring me down right now! I haven't had any chocolate for days and it might not make it through the night! ^â™¥^
â™¥â™¥ These were so fun to open each day! I loved everything! The caramel was delicious! I loved all of the deco tapes, the tiny tea set, the altered domino, the fabric, the pocky and so on! It was a very thoughtful package! Thank you so much! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! â™¥â™¥

Comment: Love the Ribbon Spool Box and now I have a great sample for how to attach the lid with ribbon! Thanks so much for all the butterfly charms and the flowers! Everything was wonderful!
Response: I'm sure you will find your own special way to attach the ribbon/lid. I've recieved so many variations of these boxes and they are all so sweet. I thought the charms would be cute with the flowers. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for reading my profile and sending me the buttons! I love buttons! I especially love vintage carded buttons!!! It was so thoughtful of you! I am so sorry for my little confusion earlier, I am moving and things got a little crazy. Thank you!
Response: You are welcome. I love vintage buttons also and can't resist buying them at estate sales and antique stores.
Comment: Thank you so very much for the gorgeous selection of ribbon! They are so Springy! Also, I love the printed tapes- they are hard to find in my small town so they are greatly appreciated! Happy Swapping! Jen
Response: You are welcome. Glad you liked everything. :)
Comment: Thank you so so much for your beautiful matchbox, so much cuteness! :) And thank you also for the deco tape. I can't get it anywhere here, so I'm always excited when I get any through swap-bot. Maybe we can do another swap again sometime!
Response: You are quite welcome. I would love to swap with you sometime. :)
Comment: thank you so much for the Wonderful items!!!!! I love everyone of them and used the scrapbook stuff on a beautiful page of my hubby and I and then more on cards. Wish I could give you more than a 5 and a heart. Thanks much!

Comment: Unbelievably cute! This is the most darling swap package ever! I couldn't stop squealing with delight as I unwrapped all the goodies. The hedgehog is so adorable, the stamps are amazing, EVERYTHING is just terrific. Darn you, Swap-Bot for limiting me to one measly heart! This girl deserves 100!! Thanks so much for the awesome Christmas goodies!
Response: Woo Hoo! I'm glad you like everything. That little hedgehog looked so easy to make, until I actually tried to make one. It took me 7 tries to get one that didn't crack into pieces! I'm glad he is in a good home. ;)

Comment: Amazing package! I loved everything in it & I appreciate you taking the time to check my profile & send things I really like! The socks & stamps were especially nice. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Response: Glad you liked the goodies! I love sending these swaps.
Comment: Thank you so much for my journal kit! I love flowers of all kinds, especially my gerbera daisies. So thanks for sending me lots of flowers that will last forever. Oh, and I really like the little jar with the flower atop my journaling questions. Can't wait to get started.
Response: Glad you liked everything! Have fun journaling.
Comment: This is so nice! I was so excited for the silly bandz, haha. I've wanted some for a while! I'm also super pumped about the sharpie highlighters! And crayons! :D Thank you again, you hosted a super cool swap!
Response: Tee hee! Silly bands aren't exactly school supplies, but I couldn't resist! Thanks for joining the swap - hope to see you in some others soon!
Comment: I love all the randomness that came in the package. The postcards are great, the stamps are great, etc etc. :D I love the little descriptions you put on the things you sent too.
Response: Woo Hoo! Glad that you like randomness, because there was a bit of everything in the package. I didn't want to write on the pc's that I couldn't post in the town I purchased it, so I put the little post-its on the back instead. You should have also gotten a few pc's individually mailed. :)
Comment: Shocked and thrilled by the swap you sent! I can not believe that you made that stamp! It is amazing! You are so talented! The bath salts smell amazing! Thank you for such a great and thoughtful swap! I will truly enjoy it!
Response: I'm so glad that it arrived safely and that you like the stamp. I'm still learning and it was far from perfect. :)
Comment: This was a great variety grab bag, from the funky sticky fabric strips (so clever!) to the darling little file folders and the handmade buttons (totally my style!) The vellum sheets were beautiful as well, and the primitif stickers. Kath appreciates you remembering her with her very own button and says 'Thanks!'
Response: I'm glad you like the things I sent and that Kath likes her button.
Comment: Thanks for making super cute fabric tape!! I love the patterns & never would have thought of putting it through my Xyron sticker maker!!?! I found that brown paper tape, so I'll try it both ways. Thanks, Kathleen!!
Response: I couldn't find the brown tape anywhere. So I had to use the Xyron or double sided duct tape.
Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I received the books, waters and soaps from my Amazon wishlist! I really really really appreciate it!! You are an awesome swapper!! If you ever wanna swap again, let me know!!!!
Response: Glad you got them so fast! I would love to do another swap with you soon.
Comment: WOW! I wish there was some rating higher than a 5+heart:) This was an incredibly fun, thoughtful, lovely package! We will indeed be using all the wonderful goodies in crafting and decorating goody bags, "menus", and thank you cards for LB's party. She was delighted with everything, as am I! (((hugs))) from us both:)
Response: Yippee! It got there in time for the party preparation. Post some good party pics to your flicker! : )
Comment: LOVE my bottle of fun. Everything shows the time and effort you took to make this swap special. Just used all my stamps in a friendship book and they are perfect!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Response: I'm glad you love it. I tried to pick things that fit your profile. Thanks for the prompt rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great package. It made me smile :) I love everything, the candies, the cute lil action figures, the stuff to make spider-man cupcakes (hooray!) and the spider-man which I will never send out in the mail (it's mine!) Edit: July 9th: missstamper also angeled and sent me a great big spider-man scrapbook set. Since I can't rate an angel I'll add the comment and we can pretend this counts as 2 Five and hearts.
Response: It made me smile also as I put the package together. I thought the matchbox turned out cute!
Comment: Kathleen- I love the items you selected for me for this swap. I am really loving the B/W patterns and the great stamps and inks. You really did a fantastic package for me. Thanks so much- Melissa
Response: So happy that you liked everything. Happy Stamping!
Comment: Oh my, I received your generous box of March kindness today. I had to wait an extra day because it wouldn't fit in my mailbox and I had to authorize the mailman to leave it on my porch. You spoiled me with so much kindness - this is one of the best packages I've received since being on swap-bot (for a year)! You are a person after my own heart - kind & generous. I love, love, the huckleberry jam & crunch mix. Yum! The personalized swap-bot cards & address labels are awesome! I know I'm probably mixing the Feb & March pkgs up as far as comments go. Did you make the lovely purple bag you put the fancy fibers , twill tape & pen in? It's darling!
Thanks again, for making my month!
Response: I am so glad that you liked everything. I love making the friendship bags, and the purple one was one of my favorites. I've never tried the Crunch. I might have to get some for myself next time. : )
Comment: Hello Kathleen,
Thank you for the wonderful package you sent to me for the "The Best Medicine: Heart Theme" Swap. It arrived on Feb. 1st and I appreciate your patience with me in getting your rating and comments done. I absolutely love everything you sent and wish I could have given you more than 5 and one heart. I really love how you decorated he lid on medicine bottle and how you attached the lid so it would not get separated from the bottle. All of what you sent will be useful in future swaps, card-making, scrapbooking projects, as well as altered art and collage projects. Hope we get opportunities in the future to swap with one another. Happy Swapping!
Response: Thank you for the sweet comments. I am so glad that you liked everything. Take care.
Comment: Me peek? Never. I might, however, hold it up to the light, shake it, accidentally open a corner, but peek? Not in a million years! :-) Thank you for hosting such a fun swap. You did a wonderful job.____12/29 Now that I have opened my package all I can say is WOW! I am thrilled with everything and the pencils in the case are just way too cute. And my monster bag?! I LOVE it! You sent a wonderful swap (as always). Thank you so much!
Response: Thank you so much for the sweet comments and the prompt rating. NO PEEKING... I'm watching you! LOL. 12/29 I was hoping you'd love the monster bag, it was so much fun to make! The pencils weren't exactly monsters, but they were too cute to pass up.
Comment: I love everything! The tote bag and journal are just amazing. I love the monsters and quotes all throughout the journal! What an adorable idea. I ate my skull cookie while opening the rest of the presents. My hubby immediately tried some of the buffalo chips and they were delicious. The round dotee faces are going to come in so handy. :-) Thank you so much for a wonderful swap and for sending items that were so perfect for me.
Response: I'm so glad that you appreciate the thought and care that went it to your gifts. I had so much fun with this swap. Thank you for hosting it!
Comment: Kathleen - thanks for the wonderful noodle and charms you sent. That was very kind of you to be so thoughtful. I've added them to my stash! See you next time around!
Love the swap-bot card as well. Where did you find them?
Response: You are welcome. I received the swap cards in the "Help Me Make My Swaps Lovely" swap from MissU. If you contact her, she might be willing to set up a private trade!
Comment: This was absolutely awesome! I couldn't resist opening it now and I love every bit of it! If I could give more hearts I would! Thank you so much!! We can't wait to do the little advent packages either!
Response: Woo Hoo! Early Christmas at your house. I am so glad that you liked everything.
Comment: I love it , I love it, specially the clear stamps they dont sell those here in Chile, I am going to have to learn how to use them. Thank you so much its a great kit, cant wait to get my hands on it.
Response: Wow. This shipping was much faster this time! Here is a link to some hints of stamping with acrylics http://www.acherryontop.com/article?a=801
Comment: 'Extra special' doesn't quite cut it for this package. I think she must have picked out every piece with one eye on my profile (rulers! textures! parchment! vellum! stamps to cut out!) and all those extra goodies like, oh, white core cardstock AND an instruction paper, which could've been its own separate swap packet! As for the beautiful minicard with the eecummings quote, I'm not going to have a chance to get it to myself: my six-year old daughter pounced on it, demanded that I read it, loved the quote and 'heart' dangle, and now wants it for her display clothesline.... sigh....
Kathleen gets a virtual hug and kiss from my daughter and a bigger one from me - oh, yes, and definitely a heart for a heart!
Response: So glad you liked everything I chose for you. Hugs back to you and your sweet daughter.
Comment: What can I say.....WOW! Thank you for everything! The corn cob is great, I've never seen one of those..can't wait to try it. You went above and beyond to make this special. Have a great fall season in beautiful Montana!
Response: You're welcome. I thought the corn cob was so cute also, and so soft. I think I better go buy one for myself. LOL. Smiles.
Comment: Loved Loved Loved the package it was perfect, I have to say though my fav envelope is the star one how did you know im a star freak! I also really love the small envelopes i cant wait to try my hand at some cute itsy bitsy ones like that, and the little pack of paper will be perfect for that ;) Btw are all of them made out of wallpaper how unique....Thank You So Much!
Response: Glad you liked the envies. I love using wallpaper because it makes them so durable. Thanks for rating so quickly and for the heart.
