Comment: I guess you never planned on sending anything. I wasn’t going to rate but I don’t care to be lied to:(
Response: Hi, I 'm not a liar and I have every intention of sending your swap. As i said before i was extremely I'll and am still recovering from complications to my lungs making it very hard to breath which exhausts me. I had 5 swaps that I missed due to my illness and have completed the first 3 and I am working on yours now. I understand the feeling of being shorted or missing out bc you are looking forward to something in the mail. I felt that way in the beginning as well so I understand. I'm my experience the people who remain in contact or resend a swap if something is missing always deliver, it's the ones who never respond that usually don't. I truly do understand you're predicament and ask for a little more patience, I know words don't help but I have never missed a single swap, nor have I ever been unable to fulfill my promises before si this is very upsetting to me as well. Hopefully from my track record below go above & beyond with my swaps, & I am making my late swaps extra special with extra goodies as an apology & thank you for your patience. Ps. I could have slapped something together & said good enough but I am hand making my paper crafts detailed to each persons profile because I didn't want to send something quick & easy, especially since you have been kind enough to wait. Sincerely, Tina Verhoeks
Comment: Thank you for the lovely mail you made for this swap. It was fun opening all the envelopes in the flipbook and discovering all the little goodies. And the stamped images and scrap papers you added in the back are lovely. Thanks for reading my profile so well and making this for me.
Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed everything! It was fin swapping Flow goodies with fellow enthusiasts. ♥️

Comment: Thank you for such a creative and purple-filled mail! First and foremost, what a lovely envelope! It certainly speaks Spring. And the booklet is so well handcrafted.

Comment: Thanks for the napkins ! Where is the one with the faces from?
Response: Hi, thanks for the heart.🙂 The face napkin came from the Jane Davenport* collection from Michaels. The box said tissue paper but they were napkins but I find it works great either way. There are different styles in the box as well. I removed the blank extra layer to be able to send more for the money. * made by American Crafts Have a great day!

Comment: Hey there, Curiouskitty! Thank you for a great swap with the napkins you chose! My favorite is the Paris one, and I already plan to use the Hello Spring one for some postcards for grandkids and nieces that I send mail to. Thanks also for the extras you included: the purple feather paper is beautiful and the coloring card with birds and birdcages will be fun to color. Thanks for checking out my profile and sending me such great Happy Mail! Oh, and I love the decorated envelope too! Even the envelope is 'a keeper'!!! Love it!!!

KarmaKr8 rated for Pocket Letters for Beginners on Feb 29, 2020
Comment: I cannot believe this was your first pocket letter. It is so amazing!!! Such attention to detail, even the package was cool! I love the little journal tied with string! The handmade matchbook with the tiny post it notes blew me away! I love that each paper pocket was made with different interesting paper and filled with tiny treasures. I cannot wait to put all of it in my journals, including the lime notepaper!!
Response: Hi, thank you so much for your compliments. ♥️ I had fun making it and I give you credit too as you have shown me a whole new area to create crafts! Shabby, grungy, Tim Holtz etc. I have a whole new pinterest album now. 😉 Lol It took awhile to have everything click (I changed it so many times lol) but I was happy with how it turned out. Funny, I didn't think I would like pocket letters, but i see how versatile they are and I'm hooked! I'm glad you will be able use items in your journals.
