user515 12/18/2006 #

My hands are exciting to craft again for someone :)Nice idea Vidriosa. Thanks for purpose it !

alwaysjoy 12/29/2006 #

Does this need to be an ornament or any craft I choose? I don't have any ideas on how to make an ornament!

funkykchicken 01/ 2/2007 #

I have a question.It doesent have to be an ornament right?

vidriosa 01/ 2/2007 #

Any craft is what I originally intended - whatever you make is fine !

user5721 01/27/2007 #

I recieved a cute little beaded animal, but I don't know who sent it.

FingersInc 01/27/2007 #

Courtney YES ! I received your wonderful pouches. what a great hand crafted item! I would never know you just learned to use the sewing machine. I took them to work and had show and tell. Thanks so much.

FingersInc 01/27/2007 #

Karen I received your Iris paper folding, everyone at work wanted to take it apart and figure out how you did it ! I would not let them ! Thanks so much, this is a first for me.

danit 01/28/2007 #

Tangee, it was me who sent you the beaded animal. my name is on the envelope, I'm just too lazy to write the notes, because of me bad English and the need to check the spelling all the time.

user4472 01/28/2007 #

I received a beautiful pouch today with wine charms they are so beautiful I love them. Though we do not drink wine I am going to add earing backing to them to wear!!!! THANKS SO MUCH they are so beautiful!!! I really love them

harleychick27 01/28/2007 #

Hi Jenna!

I'm so glad you like the wine charms! It's funny that you say you don't drink wine as I said to my mom after I'd sent them that I should have called them 'beverage charms'. Anyway, glad you like and they would look super cool as earrings! Great idea! :O)

user5726 01/29/2007 #

I sent my packages out last week to Stacy, Diane, and Carole. I hope that you like them and that you get them soon.

julief 01/29/2007 #

user5695 01/30/2007 #

Thanks for the pretty Valentine's card Mona! And thanks for the letter. So nice to receive a 'real' letter instead of email. I'll write back.

user5695 01/30/2007 #

Thanks for the fun boa Ellen! Love the textures.

Courtney 01/30/2007 #

Melly, your great journal with very cute cover arrived. Thank you! I love it.

user5721 02/ 2/2007 #

Thank you for the little handmade journal, JUST LOVING IT! I forget right now who made it for me, sorry. Danit, thank you again for the little beaded animal!

user5619 02/ 2/2007 #

I receive a beautiful ATC from Monika aka Drachenfrau I´m Happy!!

julief 02/ 3/2007 #

Today I got a lovely, knitted dishcloth from Joan. Thank you so much! The bright spring colors are just what I needed today.

LadyYing 02/ 3/2007 #

Sent out mine to Oregon, Ontario Canada and Estonia :) I hope they like what I sewed up for them, I'm still new at sewing so it didn't come out perfect but I tried my best. Hopefully shipping won't take to long to the one to Estonia.

simindy 02/ 3/2007 #

Wow, I'm a LUCKY girl, I've already received my three incredible packages for this swap! I've received a beautiful handmade card from Cheryl--it's gorgeous and you are incredibly talented. Then I received a beautifully made tote bag from Colleen--the fabric is super warm and comfy (makes me think of a comfy blanket). It's now holding one of my crochet projects :) Finally, I received two very pretty pouches made with delicious fabrics--I'll probably use those to hold CDs and my business cards. Thank you so much ya'll, this swap was great!

user90 02/ 5/2007 #

I received some candles and a coin purse/pouch sewn from moose hide - not only is this a beautifully made piece, it is STURDY, just like I like!! Thank you Judy! I can't tell what your swap-bot name is, I tried looking around so I could message you directly but gave it up. Hopefully you'll look here and know that I received your awesomeness. I didn't want to wait until I could rate to let you know. Thanks again, and I liked reading your note, too. Cheers!

Clau 02/ 5/2007 #

MissAmyO, I received your beautiful pillow, and I'm loving it. I would never have guessed that you made it from vintage handkerchiefs. Thank you so much!!!

I sent out my packages to M, helloabc and Sylvielea today.

user5618 02/ 5/2007 #

Danit, Aya, and Jamie J, I sent your items out today. I hope you enjoy!

sylvielea 02/ 6/2007 #

Hi Ladies !!!

I sent this morning my little hand-made presents to Ambika, Carissa and M all in USA. I hope you will enjoy it !!!

Best regards from France !!!


user5713 02/ 6/2007 #

Clau and Sylvielea your packages were sent out today! I had so much fun making them! Small problem though..when I bring up the list of who I send my swap to... one of them is missing.. well not really missing.. more so that the name, address etc were all changed to "HelloABC". The was a real name and address before but now it's changed to the helloabc.... if it ever changes back I'll be sure to send out that package as well.

user4960 02/ 6/2007 #

Sleeping Traveler, Babbingpanda & Amy Hoosier aka Amy: I sent yours off yesterday. :D

1CrazyQuilter 02/ 7/2007 #

there is a new flickr group to share swap-bot photos. the group name is "Swap-bot.com swaps"

user5064 02/ 7/2007 #

serenity speaks, your partner with helloabc used to be lingmin and she duped me on a swap, so I wouldn't be too worried

user5713 02/ 7/2007 #

Oh ok.. sorry she flaked... If anyone ends up not getting something I'll be happy to send a handmade goodie their way since I only ended up sending to 2 people :o)

LadyYing 02/ 7/2007 #

I just uploaded pictures of the things I made for my swapers on the gallery on here. Sorry the pics came out so large. I hope they like what I made :)

user5713 02/ 8/2007 #

I uploaded the goodies MissAmyO and MaryO sent me!

evieroz 02/ 8/2007 #

I mailed my things I made around Jan. 16th to erica in Spain, Lauren in Texas and Mazzam in England. So far I have only received one of my "gifts". From M. Williams, NY. a womderful piece of homemade soap. I just love it. I sure hope that I get my other two "gifts". So hold on to your extra one Serenity Speaks, I may be the lucky one getting your "extra" if I don't receive mine you will be my angel.

user5713 02/ 9/2007 #

Evie Roz I would love to be your angel if you end up needing one! I'll be sure to check out your profile and make something just for you!
