Comment: Kelli, your envelop arrives today. Thank you so much for your lovely ATCs and ephemera you share with me. Thank you also for sharing me the sight from your home. I really appreciate. I live in a crowd city. So there is not much nature around except my small garden with small birds visit. :)
Comment: Hi Kelli! Your packet arrived today with a sweet pretty tag and some butterfly goodies--many thanks! I love the delicate glitter and textures on your tag, and appreciate the extras. Thanks for a nice swap!
Comment: Hi Kelli, thank you for the cute bunny library pocket. I am using it right now as a bookmark as I started reading Anne of Avonlea for the third time! Thank you also for the other little goodies for arts and crafts. Can't wait to use them.
Comment: Squeeeee the mail gods blessed me with your swap! I love it! Tytyty so much! My daughter saw the card and exclaimed " ohhhhhh it's beautiful! " lol I might have to fight her for this one lol. Tytyty so so much! Happy swapping!
Comment: Finally received your heart ATC. The mail is so strange these days. Sometime I get things within days of mail swap dates and others seem to take weeks. Thank you so much. I really enjoy the layering technique. We also had a big snow storm at the time you mailed the swap. Second one this year and hopefully the last! Blessings to you.
Response: I just received a huge pile myself. I have full plans of rating it tonight with a steaming cup of tea. It will take a while. LOL!
Comment: Hi Kelli! Sounds like you were a busy camper cutting out all the burn barrel to rescue it for the mailman! I love doing that too! And who doesn't like popcorn? Thanks for the Chunk and keep up the good work. Take care ~ Judy
Comment: Lovely spring pc, great color palette! We are having an early spring here. Daffodils have been blooming for a few weeks 💖. The sounds have already returned to the evening air! It's astounding!
Response: I am already loving our spring here in OK.
Comment: Super cute ATC, thanks so much! Definitely a good affirmation... Courage isn't always something I have a lot of. :) Love the Ephemera too, will definitely be using those in a smash book or art journal. Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty card and envelope. I am happy to see you back making cards. I don't do it nearly as often as I'd like, but I enjoy it very much. Thank you also for the cute address labels. :-)
Comment: Your choice of notecard really brightened my day, Kelli :) The washi tape samples are so timely - I don't have any V-day themes ones. I couldn't make out the name of the movie you watched (based on your favourite book series). Hope your 2021 is starting off well.
Comment: Wowee! Thank you for a huge envie of lovely items - you sent sooo many nice things!! Love the little bags and envelopes, all the punchies and doilies, the tissue paper is perfect for Vday stuff!! Thank you so much!!
Comment: Hiya! Happy (early) Valentine's Day! I'll be opening my cards on Feb. 14th. :3 Thank you for the wonderful happy mail and I'm looking forward to opening my beautiful card. Take care and much love!!!
Comment: Congratulations to you and both your daughters!! Very exciting start to a new year. I enjoyed reading your letter made me smile! Thank you! And thank you for the washi to it is very pretty I love getting new washi!
Comment: These are great. I am smitten with the one with the loose weave fabric and the roses and butter knife. I think the paperclip saved the whole swap. The short side of the envelope was open from top to bottom. I believe everything was in there. This has happened before and even to ones I have sent. Do you have any idea what is going on? Thanks again.
Response: That is horrible! I will resend some more tags next week! I am glad you enjoyed them. I had made a bunch of those paperclips for a junk journal I am making. I just loved them.
Comment: Oh my goodness Kelli, you are so very talented! This open envelope is beyond amazing! I lreally like the tea stained papers in this book, the napkin looks and feels like cloth. You even stitched around the edges which makes it so very special. I love all the layers of doilies and leaves with all the beautiful fall colors. Thank you for this amazing swap and it is so cool to swap with another Okie.🆒💝🍁🍂
Response: I loved making this Envie! It was so much fun. I am glad you are enjoying it.
Comment: Thanks for the chunk! Every year, I get together with friends/family for a girl's night activity during the holidays (i.e., Nutcracker Ballet, Lumanarias at the Botanical Garden). This year we're going to a "Love Actually" movie party at our local movie theatre! I can't wait!
Comment: Hi Hi! Thank you for the beautiful notecard, it's lovely! It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! Also, thank you so so much for the washi tape samples, they are stunning!!! I I hope you have a great week ^_^
Comment: Cute card and LOVE the leaf decorations! Where did you get these! And I want to come over for Halloween, you'll be watching my 2 favorite Halloween movies! If you lived closer I'd "drop" in! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the card and note. It has cooled way off. yesterday and today it has been in 50's low 60's and raining off and on all day and night. Supposed to warm up tomorrow but still rainy.
Comment: Hi Kelli and thank you for the beautiful fancy fold corner card. It was fun to make - I agree! I did mine in a Halloween theme and was pleasantly surprised after making it that it actually turned out! 1Yours is lovely and feminine and I love the coordinating papers that you used. And thanks for the fun extras as well! And for a great swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful note. I have been married previously and my husband committed suicide so you are in my prayers. I am so sorry for what you are going through, but I'm so glad that you have your pastor. I love the Hummingbirds! Thank you so much. Almost to pretty to use lol!
You got it! 🙏🙏
Response: Thank you so much! I covet your prayers.
Comment: Kelli, what a beautiful job you did on this postcard! I love the colors you used and the way you treated the edges; and the half-pearls were the perfect finishing touch! I hope your trip to the sea helps heal the pain you are going through with the loss of your friend... You have my sympathies, and also my thanks for sending me this special swap.
Response: I wanted to add some cheesecloth, but I didn't think it would make it through the mail. I am glad you enjoyed it. Thank you!
Comment: Kelly: Your junk journal arrived and i love it! You used beautiful papers for it and I love the touches of lace and pearls and the way you edged all the pages to make them look old. And the little "books" you created inside are amazing! It's just as beautiful closed as it is open. Thank you for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Kelli, by now you're on your cruise and having a great time, I hope! I received your bookmarks and I love them all! The ocean ones are my favorite, of course, I love the way you did the edges and the gemstone ribbons are fabulous! The Thanksgiving one is beautiful as well! All my favorite Fall colors and the ribbons are sparkly (and I LOVE sparkly things!). The The bit of burlap behind the word card and the line of half-pearls really set it off nicely! You did a beautiful job and I really love having these. Thank you for all the energy and creativity you put into them. I hope we can swap again in the future!
Response: I am so glad you enjoy these! Thank you!
Comment: Haven't seen Crunch 'n Munch in ages! Used to love it! Hope you like the J.P. book, I've read then all. I also prefer real books but have a bunch of ebooks in reserve when I can't take them with me! Tell your Huggie "thank you for your service!" Thank you!
Comment: Great card! And thank you for the previous envelope stored with decorative napkins. I am working now and less time to host swaps, and it's just too hot right now to move. 112-115 😓😓. Love your unicorn skinny. 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Response: I got a little sew crazy, but I loved the colors! I am so glad you like it!
Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE what you sent me! At first I was worried it wouldn't fit in my spinner and I wanted to display it so badly but because you left the extra cards slid in I was able to pull them out and use them in my bible journaling and still have a beautiful card on my spinner!! The song Amazing Grace was my grandmother's favorite song and it was played at her funeral years ago. This song means a lot to me. Thank you for making this and sending it to me!!
Response: That is exactly what the little cards were for! I am so glad you liked it. I LOVED making it and absolutely prayed over it.
Comment: OH. MY. GOODNESS!! The pockets are adorable! I love them. The little journal you made is awesome, great job! I would have never thought to use a note card like that. And I save a lot of my pretty note cards. Thank you so much for such a lovely swap.
Response: I hate to say it, but I hate the color yellow and sunflowers. It is a running joke in my family. When I saw that note card though...I just had to set in my work basket. Then I watched the tutorial. Then I saw that you like sunflowers so it was perfect! Well the note card journal isn't perfect but it was very fun to make. I am so glad you like it!
Comment: Kelli: Thank you for the lovely flower and butterfly tag pockets. Wasn't this a fun project? Your's really turned out so nicely - love that you used some of your
decoupaged napkins over book page for the pocket of one of them! Cheers! Laurie
Response: I am addicted to the decoupage...I am glad you enjoyed them and I hope they are useful. Thank you!
Comment: oh, wow! I’m really sorry to hear about your daughter. But also glad that things have taken a turn towards healing for both of you. Do you think she we would might be cheered, if only just a little, If I sent her a card? & thank you so much for the birthday wish! That was very sweet! :)
Comment: Actually you didn't include a poem. But that's okay, I know her work, and you did lovely bit of paper crafting with the bird and their cages.
The two poems came, they aren't sonnets but that's perfectly fine. I hadn't read them for a long time and it was good to read them again.
Response: I am so sorry, I thought sonnets were considered poems! I will gladly resend 2 poems. Thank you! I thought your could tuck all the poems you received in this swap series in one place. I hope you do enjoy it.
Comment: Thank you! They are very pretty. I can tell you put a lot of love and time into making these for me. You must have a whole lot of patience to sew them to a card, lol! The ticket was a good idea for the card,
Response: There were a few times I glued my fingers together but over all I had so much fun making these. I have now made a zillion of these for so many projects. I am glad you liked them. Also, I am obsessed with using guest checks!
Comment: Beautiful buttons and a fantastic presentaion!! So pretty I just want to frame the whole thing!! I’m glad you enjoyed them and it justified an art purchase - always a bonus! Thanks for an amazing swap!!
Comment: Thank you! What a BEAUTIFUL memory dex card! It's truly stunning I appreciate all the time and thought you put into it. And wow! Love the papers you enclosed. Can't WAIT to make some dex cards with them!
Response: I loved making it. I am so glad you like it.
Comment: Gorgeous! I love how sweet they turned out - you did an amazing job! Thanks for the nearly dying! I totally understand!! 😁
Response: Lolly's tut made it look so easy...but no! Tiny = Hard. I can't tell you how many tiny flowers I lost. My studio now looks like a garden. I am glad you like them. They are made from my favorite paper pad.
Comment: I also I am thankful for unanswered prayers. I remember when that song came out and out youth minister did a bible study one Wednesday about it. God truly knows what is best for us even if we have our heart set on something different. Thank you for sharing and the lovely tag.
Comment: Thank you so much. Love your the prayer tag that you made and everything is beautiful. I'll be praying for you. I do understand. Sometime it's really difficult to forgive and forget. I've been there myself.
Response: I just started a study on forgiveness I found from a SB pen pal and it is awesome! God is so good all the time. Thank you!
Comment: Hi! Thank you for the share and the butterflies! Wow, you did have a busy weekend, I was tired just reading it all! How fun about your Dad's B-day celebration and I was sorry to read about your Grandma's funeral. Isn't it amazing how sometimes that is the only time we see family? Sad but true for most of us. Wishing you all the best! Hugs, Happy Easter, and Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hello Kelli,
Thank you so much for Memorydex Card Swap. It definitely reflects Spring. I like how you found the words and the tulips to represent Spring. I will add this one to my other Similar rolodex cards. These are larger but they will work. Continued Positive Swapping!
Comment: Hi Kelli! Thank you for sharing about your weekend, sounds busy but fun! You would hate our house as we have plenty on our counters - yikes! Thank you for the goodies as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I hope you have a great week! Thank you!
Comment: Reading your pretty letter gave me the biggest smile all the way through. Though I haven't had personal experience with prison, it seems my niece chooses to live behind bars because weeks after she's out she goes right back in. LOL I get so off topic sometimes also LOL How fortunate you are to have a huggie who will vacuum the whole house. I love this Easter Egg tag which looks like you must have made it. Great job. Great letter. Have a great spring.
Response: Thank you! My Huggie works 12-14 hour days so I try not to make him do many chores. And I loved playing with those tags. So much fun!
Comment: OMG, I thought I rated already. In fact, I wrote a statement, but forgot to choose a number. Blonde Moment. Than you for sending a reminder to rate, and thanks for the recipes! Can wait to give them a try!
Comment: Thank you for the notecard and the great ideas! I am still pretty new at cooking for myself and am scared to death of cooking meat! I can brown hamburger but its always on the crispy side.. hahaha
Comment: I love the beautiful paper you used. I also love the saying you added at the end. Thanks!
Response: I am not a girly girl in any way, until it comes to my sewing studio; it is all bright pink. I just can't get enough. I also say that quote to my inmates almost every day along with, "your choices have consequences, be it good or bad, the making of a man is how you handle those consequenses."
Comment: Wish I could give more than one heart! It's creative, generous people like you who make swap-bot such a special site! Thank you!
Response: I was so nervous sending that because I have never made one before and its not a traditional valentine. I am so glad you enjoyed it! I had a blast making it and will probably make a million more.
Comment: Hello Kelli,
I love the memorydex you created and sent to me. You did a fabulous job for it being your first one!!! I love the verse you put on it also. The Project Life cards are so pretty and are a wonderful addition to my collection.
Response: Thank you! I had so much fun making this!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your note and I had to smile when I read where your daughter was born, because I was born in the same city. ðŸ˜Š I hope you have a great time when you make it to CA! I love the note card you used and the stickers are so pretty! They would look awesome on a pocket letter. Thanks so much! â™¥ï¸
Response: I am so happy you enjoyed them. Thank you!
Comment: Kelli, thank you for sharing your Christmas presents. I got what every woman wants, her very own leaf blower. My husband is not very romantic. We'll see what use I get when the leaves start falling next fall. Shirley
Response: I am getting a passport renewal for my birthday, I absolutely get it. Thank you.
Comment: Happy early Valentine's Day.
thank you for my very first 2018 Valentine's card. Up it goes on my wall. and Thank you kindly for the cool washi tape. One can never have enough washi.
Comment: Thank you for sharing. I hope your niece heals quickly & get signed off soon - itâ€™s amazing how sheâ€™s pulled through. Well done on becoming a hostage negotiation; that sounds like a really difficult but rewarding job.
Response: We just found out on the 30th that she is expecting a little one in September. Such great news! Thank you!
Comment: Sorry for the delay on this - just got home from England. It's been insanely busy here. I got both your first and second sends for this swap. There's always that one person that's impossible to shop for, am I right?? Experiences and time shared with loved ones over materialistic things sounds like a good way to go!
Response: I hope you had a great trip! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Kelli, I just love the winter coffee ATC card you made me, too cute. One product I highly recommend for ATC cards, greeting cards actually lots of crafts that need a shiny touch to is a product called Glossy Accents which is sold at Hobby Lobby around $5.99 it takes awhile to dry but it gives Ia craft project a shiny glossy look. I think Michaels or JoAnns may have it to but goes by a different name but same results. Let me know if you ever want to do a one on one ATC swap. Have a great weekend & CRAFT ON! AnnaL.
Response: I am going shopping tomorrow! Thank you so much. I will take you up on the1 on 1 after the holidays are over.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Christmas card. Your message was beautifully written and was exactly what I needed to be reminded of this season. I love the cute owl stickers. I can't wait to decorate my kids' journals with them. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the cute note card! I do hope your goals will work out for you. I seem to start new ones threw out the year. I am getting to the point I figure out what works and sometimes it just doesnt! Keep going!
Comment: I love CC - it's fun seeing all the mistakes too! I have cochlear implants now but still use captions.
Response: My mother just celebrated her 5 year anniversary of have implants. It absolutely changed her life as she had only 3 % "hearing" with the highest powered hearing aid in one ear and none in the other. I hope the implants have been just as wonderful for you!
Comment: I love love the bird stamp and sticker on the pretty purple envelope (my fave color) and the bday card with extras was very sweet. Thank u. Had an uneventful bday but spent with loved ones. Thanks bunches â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Comment: Thank you so much for the list of books (you missed 5 names and I am pretty sure you found the other page there at your table ;-) ... From the five you listed, I have read 4 already and my favorite is ''The Art of War''.. I loved the Jane Eyre movie with Fassbender, have you seen it? Many hugs and thank you for the swap!!!
Comment: Thank you for the very pretty heart Valentine's card. I think you did a wonderful job. I have been making Valentine's for veterans so I will include this one in my stack. A friend is helping me and we have made about a hundred.
Comment: Hi Kelli! Thank you for the cute card! I'm sorry to hear that the swap was a bit stressful for you. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with my creations too. Try not to be so hard on yourself- it turned out great!
Comment: Thank you for the notecards. Unfortunately though when I pulled the tape off the envelopes the tape took part of each envelope with it, tearing the surface of the paper where it was taped. Edit: Envelopes received today, 2/2. Thanks!
Response: I have extra envies ready to mail out monday morning. I am so sorry about that.
Comment: Thank you for the cute assortment of tapes - Very nice - Love them all - and - Thanks for the cute note-card you wrote on - dachshund and bicycle -- You must've read my profile - ha! Love your handwriting, too. Thanks again for all the lovely stuff -- Happy New Year to you. Oh - and - Happy One Year S-B Anniversary -- Almost.
Response: Everytime I see those cards, I buy the store out! They are my favorite.
Comment: Hi Kelli! Thank you for the lovely Mother's Day card, sweet note, and the fun owls! Last year I got upset over some goofy stuff on Mother's Day - this year we are keeping it simple and we will go from there! LOL! Happy Mother's Day to you too! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Isn't it crazy how our kids can drive us crazy! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the very nice note and sticker labels! That is a lot of gardening you are doing but I'm sure the harvest is well worth it! I enjoyed reading about your work. I think it is very interesting and I'm glad you made a difference for people.
Comment: You did an excellent job for a newbie paper crafter! I've received many ATCs from seasoned crafters that were not nearly as nice! Keep up the good work. BTW: most people apply sequins cup side up. I think they look lovely either way but I wasn't sure if you knew. Have fun with your water colour palette. ETA: oh my, I totally know about critical moms. Mine thinks I'm a bad parent. Hurts so bad! Don't worry about her and create what you love!
Response: Thank you for the sequins hack and the very nice comments. I am always so nervous about sharing "artwork" as my mother is a real artist and a little critical.
Comment: Thank you so much Kelli, love your stationary and the note cards :). The boys was delighted with the stickers! Thank you for such sweet thing to do! I am to a Christian and want to start doing bible journaling. However I love your idea a lot. I have a old roledex just sitting. Let's keep in touch and talk about making this a reality. I too I'm still new and have not yet his hosted any swaps. I believe we can get some good advice here. Thanks again Kelli
Comment: I would have never know it was only your 4th! It was great and sometime I feel like to much takes away from the point... I find myself questioning putting more on it just because... then I dont second guess myself you shouldn't either!! And thanks for extras and participating!
Comment: Thank you for your note and all the goodies :) Loved them!
My shy 22 yr old daughter keeps going to sign up but then hesitates at last minute .... hmmmm maybe we should get your 19 yr old and my 22 yr old to be penpals :)
Response: I think that would be a great idea! I will msg you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the hot chocolate that my daughter snatched and made as soon as I opened the envelope...I'm not letting her in the kitchen when I make the bourbon chicken recipe that you sent! Heck, I'll probably make it when she's at her father's house!!! So thank you for everything..great note and the owl stickers are cute as can be! Looking forward to swapping with you again!
Response: I have tried showing my youngest daughter how to make the bourbon chicken several times and she won't pay attention so I will keep cooking it for her! I hope you enjoy it!
Comment: Thanks for sharing. I truly enjoyed reading your answers. I've never been on a cruise; I'm afraid I'll get sick! Your comment about what fish do in water made me laugh :) A sewing station in your RV...just WOW! Have a great week.
