Comment: The alliteration titilation stamped on your swap card totally cracked me up. I want one! :) Thanks for the art journal goodies, travel tags, and notecard (love the kraft envelope). Those tiny address labels are so pretty that I can't wait to use them! Oh! very fun envelope, too. Thanks again. ♥
Comment: Love your name, poeticpaper. I haven't heard that one before. Normally, pocket letters have decorated fronts like all ATCs in the pockets. But since this is your first one I will not count it against you. I love everything you sent and can't wait to use it. I am looking forward to trying the zen Tazo tea. I love tea. The little owl bag is adorable. I will keep that in my collection. Very kind of you to send lighthouse stamps. Those I will be keeping also. I have that owl punch. I just love it and make it into all kinds of things.
Comment: Now THAT's a thoughtful swap, Bethany -- one *wow* after another. I could not be smiling more about the Nancy Drew, lighthouses, Edward Gorey, daffodils, and those petite stickers! Even a handwritten note. If there were a "Swapper of the Week" award, I'd give you one. ☆☆☆ Look forward to swapping with you again.
Comment: What a cool little zine, Bethany. Thank you. I've read through it 8 times, & will certainly enjoy it at least 8 times more! The one I made for this swap was my very first, but I think I can feel an addiction coming on.
Comment: Thanks for the great teas... Many of them are new to me. I can't wait to try them all. I loved your wishes and hope they all come true!! I also love the bird stamps, I haven't seen them before.
Comment: Bethany I can't thank you enough for everything you sent me! I'd give more stars if I could. I especially love the old photos!! Omg I'm so happy I can't stop smiling baha. Thank you again, beautiful xx hope your Christmas was amazing
Comment: Thank you so much! I loved all the ephemera and the extra special Hello Kitty stuff! :D Yes, I've seen the Hello Kitty Tokidoki line and it is cute! I am glad that we think Hello Kitty in general is cute together! Great swap and thank you! :0* <3
Comment: Wow! I just adore the airmal ATC you sent to me! So many beautiful stamps and the background is just NEAT. Very creative to make the ATC from real stamps. I wish I had thought of that! Thank you as well for the cute stamps!
Comment: thanks for the resend. this one arrived :)
Response: I didn't realize you hadn't received this swap. It would have been nice to receive a PM about it so I could resend to you before you went and rated me a 1 when I had no idea my package hadn't reached you.
I will get a new package together for you and resend.
Comment: I received all three random envies today. And I love the randomness of each one. I like everything. My favorites would have to be the flower embellishments and the die cuts. Love the stickers too. Thanks so much. Great swap!
Comment: Sorry it took me so long to rate -- just realized I missed it. I LOVED the great envelope you sent. There are so many interesting papers and things in it. I always appreciate getting new & different things from someoen else. I cannot wait to start a project with my new treasures. Thanks again.
Comment: What a lovely little package! I had NEVER seen a friendship book before--wanted to join those swaps but had no idea how to make one--many thanks for including one here. Your "business card" is very inspiring! I may make one about myself!
Comment: I loved everything in your snail mail swap, especially the tiny snail card was cute. And how handy that you had printed my music taste since my profile got somehow mixed up and all text disappeared, so now i can just update my music taste from your note without further thinking. :D (how lazy of me..)
Say hello to your daughter, i love mermaids too!
Comment: Thank you so much for the mix. I haven't listen to it yet, but I'm giving you a heart just for puting Flight of the Choncords on it. I FREAKIN' LOVE THEM!!!!! I don't have any music like that on my i-pod so, thank you so much!!!!!!!!! Also, I'm glad we have the same taste in movies. I love when people tell me that. Tokidoki is the coolest huh? I have all the moofia toys. A store was closing and had them for $2 each! I KNOW!! Well, thanks for the recomendation on the books. I will for sure look him up. Thanks again for a simply awesome swap!!! Bye. ^v^
Comment: Aw, it is a lovely package! Everything is so nice... and I am WAY behind. I will try to get yours together this week. :) Your zine is cool, envelope is perfect, I can't wait to try the tea (probably tonight!)... I love the ATC papers, especially the one with all the envelopes all over it...hmmm... I might have missed something? Anyway it was great fun to open and am looking forward to using it all! :)
Comment: Wow, Bethany..what great snail mail you sent my way. Love the purple bird card, the darling note pad, stickers,stickers and more star sticker. YEA!!! This is wonderful mail.
Thank you so very much Bethany.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful assortment of crafty papers! I love it! And the vanilla lime air freshener is on the dot~I love the citrus smell of anything vanilla/coconut/verbana lime-ish! :o) Again, thank you for the envie...I rcvd it on a day a girlfriend was over and her and I were so excited going through all the stuff!
Response: yay! Glad you liked the envie and the scent. I bought a package of three air fresheners and I didn't think i'd care for that scent so much so I'm glad it went to someone who could appreciate it!
Comment: I loved the mix that you sent on New Moon and it was soooo nice of you to make that mix for my daughter. Both my girls really loved it! Thanks so much! I would give multiple hearts if I could...:-)
Comment: Hey, sorry so late on rating, but I did get this last week. I tend to listen before rating, and, well, this got left in my car, and, a good road trip later, ...wow! my fave track on it is definitely Nina Simone.
Comment: Hi, Bethany!!
I loved the CD, lots of tunes I didn't have yet...I loved the live "Bjork" and the song from "Aladdin"....they were such a contrast!! Thanks for the great music!!
Your swap pal,
Comment: Bethany--I've never seen such pretty stickers. I think I just might keep a lot for myself. (I have a little granddaughter who loves stickers.) What a variety!! 3 or 4 more hearts to YOU!!!! Thank You!!
Comment: Bethany....You shouldn't worry about your ATCs they are very lovely!!! Thank you so much for the extras!! I LOVE my Captain Jack ATC!!! You did an awesome job and its always nice to have you as a partner!! :)
Comment: Thank you for the Truffula trees. Yay I have a set. (My other partner sent -The Lorax) The Post card is fabulous. Luckily we don't get them here or else I would be in trouble as I would "need" a whole set.
Comment: Hi Bethany What a cool PC. Thank you for sending it to me. Wow, that would be hard to lose your sight. But, I would go with losing hearing before my sight. Do you do something with music? Funny how each of us is so different.
Enjoy the weekend.
Have a great day
Comment: I almost forgot to rate you, and for that I apologize. I got the letter today, and well I've been kind of sick all day and tired so I put it aside and forgot. But it was so cute, the paper pieces came in handy, and the whole thing felt like it had so much personal thought into it. It made me smile and my day was much better for it. I hope we swap again.
Comment: Hi Bethany. Thanks for the poems. I will give some proper feedback on paper when I send mine off. (Again, so sorry for being this late in doing so. But as you said, I wouldn't want to take the pleasure out of it by doing it when I have barely any time on my hands!) Thanks again. - Samuel
Comment: Hi Bethany. Thanks very much for the postcard. Paraph is a great word, but the postcard itself is even better! I'm guessing you had a batch printed professionally; it looks really cool.
I would be delighted to trade poems with you if you're still interested. Would you like to trade poems that we have written ourselves, or our favourite poems by other people? Or we could trade a selection of both, and maybe make two little booklets each. Tell me what you think will work best and I'll set up a private swap for us.
Comment: Thank you so much, Bethany, - Daniel is so happy- he started painting right away with glitter paint, and looking through all of the wonderful goodies! I love that zippered pouch myself so much, that I think, I will have some trading negotiations with him...
Comment: WOW! Thank you SO much for all the great stuff! I'm currently putting it away with the rest of my stationery collection and enjoying every piece of it. Thanks a ton! <3
Oh, but the postal employee who delivered it is a moron. They BENT the package - actually folded it, the cardboard inside was creased - and crammed it into my tiny mail box. I wish they had used a package locker for it, but nooo. So the biggest sheets are a little bent, but not badly. I wish postal employees were a little more caring, as you obviously put a lot of car into how you packaged this swap. Oh well. Thanks again!!
Comment: What a fun and interesting package of papers and embellishments...! A lot of inspiration is in there and I thank you for this! The Purple Bird ATC is beautiful, too! Thank you, Bethany...you're a sweetie ~ MagentaPink13
Comment: A Finding Nemo postcard with a quote from Lewis Carroll could hardly be more beloved by me! Thank you for serendipitously sending me something that would so particularly delight me. Best, Chris
Response: lovely way with words...i'm so thrilled you enjoyed it!
Comment: WOW! When they say red, you go all out! Envelope, cover sheet, a lovely red rose, and the most beautiful red ATC! Thank you so much. I have never heard of a red prayer flag. Got any info on it? Hope you have a good holiday.
Comment: Easily one of my favorite swaps ever that I've received. I loved everything and am grateful of the attention you paid to my favorite things. Thank you so much. (My favorite was the Sandalwood incense. It's so hard to find gooooood smelling Sandlewood.) So, again..I thank you.
Response: Wonderful! Glad you liked it. I lucked out on the Monchichi! I agree with the Sandalwood - I bought that stash at a Japanese Garden.
Comment: This is the most amazing atc ever.I love it..How creative and talented you are..This card is now my favorite too..It also looks very good in my collection book..Poeticpaper is a wonderful name and I think it fits you well...I Thank you with a heart...From me and My lizard Nikki, we wish you Happy Holidays
Comment: Bethany, Thank you for all the GREAT sticker. I don't have any of them. Like you I have been collecting stickers for years and year. I love the Mr Bubble stickers. I had not even seen those before. The sticker of the Suzy Zoo Fairly is my favorite too. I LOVE Suzy Zoo and fairies. It is so funny that she fell out. Suzy Zoo is my favorite sticker line. In fact I was just looking at her site a couple of days ago. lol
Thank you so much again. What kinds of stickers do you like to collect?
