Comment: Thanks for your uplifting Circular Wisdom and fun fun fun envelope, handmade stickers and POP UP CARD! How cool is that! I haven't tried one of those in a while, and this one is awesome. And I love that you used an ALDI flyer -- I heart ALDI because I can actually get through it fairly easily :) And Great Smokies ... I spent fun times there as a kid. And places that begin with "A" -- now I feel like a real schmuck for making a postcard. Will endeavor to be more fabulously circular next time -- thanks again for joining!!
Response: Had so much fun making all for you. If I can go to Aldi, all by myself, near closing time: I am the happiest mom alive. Looking forward to more swaps with ya' ;)

Comment: Thanks for a wonderful message, note, envelope and fun papers, too! I am also a 5-AM-sanity-seeker :) I loved the beauty of the mini-folder message -- now I can prop it up and smile! I's love to know more about the craft beer enterprise in NC in a little while! I used to live outside of Ashville as a kid and would love to go back and visit someday :)

Comment: I have been out of town and my husband has misplaced the postcard you sent me. He says it's really cool. Looking forward to finding it:-) So I wanted to make sure you knew I received and that at least one person in my house has enjoyed your work so far. Thank you! Found it! And boy am I glad I did. I love the mustache on the Jolly Green Giant.

Hi Shane! Thanks for the note on my profile. I'm new to Swap-Bot, too. You're an Upcycler! I'm more an Upcycler-Wannabe. I'd never heard of crochet plarn or wrapper fusing before -- thank you for that little bit of knowledge. :o) I've not done an envelope swap before either -- my swap partner is in a foreign country and I'm going to be studying up on international mail next. Have a great week!

Hi Shane! Welcome to Swap-Bot! So glad you're here! You are sooo going to LOVE it here! There are so many fun swaps, and this is such an amazing community of fun, talented, and creative people!

Welcome also to the 'I ♥heart♥ Mail Art - June' swap --- thank you for joining my swap! If you have any questions, please feel free to holler! Hope to 'meet you in the mail' often! :)

p.s. it is always a good idea to fill out your profile with as much information & detail as possible. All your likes, favourite colours, crafts, hobbies, wishlists, etc. The more specific info you have, the happier your mailbox will be! It makes it much easier for your swap partner to create/choose items that you suit you perfectly if you have a well filled-out profile. You will notice on most of the swaps that one of the main requirements is to have a well-filled out profile --- that is the case with this swap as well.

The more detail in your profile, the better the swaps will be for you and your partner!

Happy Swapping! :)
