So colorful and all the items were lovely! i had fun with the bubbles today blowing them as my dog attempted to attack them and how did you know now and laters are my favorite candy!! I'll use absolutely everything in here thanks soo much! And Tell me about it being hard to shop for... I mainly stuck to knee high socks and garbage pail kid cards for mine as the main attraction.
Response: so cool you loved it all!!! WOW.. I was so worried that it was a lame box..lol
Thanks for the rating and the heart!! Hope to see you other swaps!!!
Comment: I received my lovely "box-o-flowers" yestday. It was neat how you taped the card and some flower embellishments to the outside as decoration. I liked the flower items that you chose for me, and I didn't forget to look inside the glasses case. Fun, fun!
Response: COOL... I am happy you liked it all... I was so worried that the ear rings would go un noticed!!!! I lkooked everywhere for flower earings.Wal Mart did not have them!!! Finally had to go to another town and go to Cato;s..then I could not make up my mind.. I had to by me a pair just like them...lol
GLAD you got it safe!!!
Thanks for the 5 and the heart!!!
Comment: Good swap! I'd suggest you wrap some of the items next time, as things like the cards might get damaged with so many small items. My son is a HUGE fan of nostalgia radio, so the tapes were very welcome! Thanks for a careful read of my profile.
Response: and thank you for the heads up. Hope you feel better soon Michelle!!
Thanks for the 5 and the heart and I am GLAD you liked it all...

Comment: You are so talented, I love the card. Also, how thoughtful of you to keep it blank and send the list on a separate paper. The ribbon is lovely and ironically, I just bought some ribbon and other scrap booking materials for myself, so the ribbon is well needed :) Thanks again for setting this up last minute.
Response: yay!!!! You got it,..Glad you liked it!!
I LOVE to make cards..Thank you for the compliment!!
You got that one FAST!!!
Thanks for the 5 and the heart!!!
ANytime you want to private swap,just ask!! HUGS
Comment: I was floored with the card. It is so pretty and I am so embarrassed now with my store bought card, lol. The gift inside was really cute too. Thank you sooo much!
Response: How sweet and thank you for the heart and the star!!!!
You are so welcome.. I love cards.Habdmade or store bought.it is the thought of just getting one in the mail.Someone took the time to SEND it,is all that matters to me...
Glad you liked it.And the little thing inside is an altered toilet paper roll with a tag for book mark or a picture...
Comment: Sorry for the confusion about the delivery! I got your package today! Thank you for the cute card and mug! And it was nice of you to wrap it in polka-dots, one of my favorite prints! Maybe we will meet again in another swap! Take care! Karen (penandink)
Response: LOL..I was just so worried about it getting broke..
Glad it made it to you safe..
Future Swaps,oh yeah!!!!
Thanks for the heart and the 5
Comment: I really enjoyed this swap;... my fave was all the neat soaps I cant wait to try.. I make soap myself and have no clue how you make the chunky look... is it a special cutter? I cant wait to try it all.. and if we ever swap again.l would love to try your hair stuff you make.. THANK YOU SOO MUCH.. for a great swap...:)
Response: glad you liked it!!
The chuncky soap is sooo easy to make..Just pour a layer of melted soap in a flat pan,let cool,and cut it up..
the swirls I do the same way,but do not gut them.I let the soap cool a tad,while still a little warm,i roll it jelly roll style and slice it..use PLENTY of ALCOHOL..
We can do another swap at the first of May if you want!!
HUGS and thanks for the 5 and the heart!!!

Adorable pig sticky notebook... bookmark, postcards, vellum phrases, tags...hmmm, did I get mention everything??
