Comment: Oh, my goodness! Where to start?!? Thank you for my mermaid friend. She's already in her new home grotto (in my bathroom) with her pair of starfish friends. The flowers are awaiting projects and I can't wait to try my scrubbies tonight!
Response: I'm so glad the Mermaid has a great new home :D
Comment: I absolutely love this square! You should take notes and write patterns. This is gorgeous! Thank you ❤️
Response: Thank you so much! I'm terrible at writing patterns :P I have always wanted to put a pattern up on ravelry though, it's been a goal that I haven't really worked on lol! So glad you liked it <3
Comment: Holy moly! Wow, you out did yourself. This wall hanging is amazingly beautiful! The flowers, I love them, I love the whole blessed thing. I took down my frog and hung it there. Everyone in the family loves it.
Do you sell them? If not, you should. ❤️❤️👏👏🥰
Response: Yaaaay! I'm so glad you love it <3 I was super happy with how it turned out! I've never tried selling any wall hangings but maybe I should add a couple to my shop. It would definitely help me go through my scrap stash :P
Comment: Dang girl!!! You are just too good at those freehand squares. It's so fun. I love the pattern. Thank you so much for another fun square. I have almost enough to start putting my first blanket together 8)
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the colours you picked- and that pattern is super cool. I'm really new to this series (this is my first round) and to crochet (I just taught myself last month) so the one I sent was fairly simple but I'm really excited to build a blanket with squares people send me and ones I make myself. Thanks for hosting these! <3 Al
Response: I'm really glad you joined in! It's super fun <3 I have a pretty sizable stack of squares now and I'm getting really excited to start putting them together :P
Comment: Oh My Stars!!! I can not even begin to image how you could make something this small. I mean, even when my eyes were really good I can't image! Ha! This is so cute and so cool. Thank you. I love it.
Response: Haha I saw the tiny hoop and knew I had to give it a try! <3
Comment: Thank you so much! The cowl is beautiful, and guess what? I *really* needed a scarf or cowl! I've gone all winter without, partly because I've hardly left home, but also because I never found what I liked at the right price, and was too depressed to make myself one for a long time ... It's been on my to-do list to work on warm, cozy winter things like that for myself, but hasn't happened yet. Absolutely perfect timing. And it's super pretty and cheerful. Thank you, thank you! <3
Response: Oh Yay! I'm glad it's useful for you <3 I hope you're in better spirits soon, thank you for participating in YA <3
Comment: These slippers are amazing! I am so grateful that you thought of me for this! They are big, but I love it! They will warm my feet on my sub-concrete floor! That’s all that matters! Thank you again!! Evan
Response: I'm so glad you like them! I had to alter the pattern so much to make them as small as they are lol! I guess that means you have room to wear thick socks with them too :P
Comment: Love the yarn!!! So soft. I'm thinking maybe I'll make a teddy bear out of it. That's a pretty good idea. I haven't made anything quite like that before. Thank you!!! And the pin is a hoot! 8)
Response: It would make such a cute teddy! Amigurumi is fun <3
Comment: Not many of us sticking with these crochet swaps so we see each other frequently. Fine by me! I love the yarn you used for this swap. There is a yarn shop about 80 miles from me, in La Grange, but I don't get there often. The Walmart here doesn't have many choices - Red Heart, Mandala Lion Brand. and some cotton yarn. Limited color range even for Red Heart - no red in forever! Yo do such beautiful work. Thank you!
Response: That is so true! I've been trying to keep track of what I send to whom so I don't send them something similar lol. And i think I have you for the next square swap too! :P I'll have to include some fun yarn for you. I would die if Walmart was my only yarn option D:
Comment: The moss stitch is beautiful! And the pin is hilarious! Because my husband carries, I immediately thought of a carry license like that. Then I looked closely and got what the license is for! Thank you! The sticker is great!
Response: Haha I'm glad you like the pin! I thought it was funny so I ordered extras to share :P
Comment: I absolutely love my ornament! It's hung front and center if my special ornament tree 🙂 thank you so much and the tree is so cute. I put it on the window sill in the kitchen. I crochet little things to put up there throughout the year so the tree is up there with some other crocheted Christmas pretties. Also that vintage card is so awesome! I love it all girl!!
Comment: Thank you so much for what you sent! I love the yarn cake (what fun colors!) and the ~mystery~ wrapped gift! It'll be so hard trying to stay patient and wait to open it! The blanket pattern is so, so appreciated as well! Thank you so much!! ❤
Response: Colorful yarn is my specialty hahaha I swapped a bunch of boring yarn for fun stuff and that was part of it!
Comment: Aaah it's so gorgeous! I can't stop feeling the yarn (as weird as it sounds, it feels like my cat's fur! 😂) Thank you for the beautiful stocking! It'll be the perfect home for all of my Christmas swaps!
Response: I have a soft fluffy kitty too :D I'm so glad you like it, I've been dying to use that yarn again and thought this was perfect!
Comment: I LOVE my mandala!!! The green and purple are so pretty. And all the little extras and pretty yarn????? I look forward to making something with that. You have spoiled me!!! Thank you so much. I love it all 8)
Response: Hope you like the yarn! I haven't gotten a chance to try it out yet :P
Comment: WAAAAH! What a great package, thank you so much Leah! I love the Calcifer pin, he's my favorite. I also read Howl's moving castle just this spring actually and I found it so endearing, I love those characters. Thanks for hosting this swap!
Comment: Many thanks for the great Instax mailing. My first Valentine Instax and a bouquet of flowers, too! Thank you also for the frame and Instax stickers - they're all great. And I would be remiss not to comment on the Totoro stickers; awesome and happy. Thanks again for a Good Mail Day.
Comment: Thank you for the photos! I have actually been to Iceland this summer and it was my dream for a long time. It was great to see those photos, they bring back memories of me being in those places <3
Response: That's amazing!! I hope you had better weather when you went
Comment: Thank you so much for hosting and for being my swap buddy! I really liked your pictures and the card itself is so pretty and cute! Thank you for the extras as well, I love all the stickers and frames. This was such a fun swap! Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you for the frame & stickers! My pugs don't like my Instax camera (I had the 210 too but sold it because I just didn't like how the photos turned out) I think because they don't like the sound.
Comment: Hello Again:) Thank you for the supercool Instax skull/flowers photo! Love it. Thanks for the extra Instax sticker frames! Please be sure to label which swap you’re sending- I figured it out by checking my sent swaps but at first thought you were sending me more for the first swap. Happy Summer Swaps💙💚💛🧡
Response: Oh no! I'm sorry! Totally forgot but I'm glad you got it figured out! :D have a good weekend <3
Comment: Thank you for the sweet birdbath photo and back-story on it:) I see something similar from my sofa! Thank you for the extra bits of paper too. 💜 Happy Swapping (Thank you- I see the sticker aspect of the papers now! Great!)
Response: You're so welcome! The papers are actually stickers! If you have the mini film you can use them as borders for your photos. They are make good frames for scrapbooking :)
Comment: Hello Leah I loved everything you sent! Thank you so much. I have never seen decorative stickers for film before! Thank you for sharing those with me. I hope you continue to do more instax swaps! I love them ~ Happy Swapping
Response: I love using the stickers! I'll definitely keep doing the swaps, I enjoy seeing other people's pictures :D
Comment: The best way to learn how to paint is to take classes where you work one on one with an artist whose work you like. Over time you will develop your own style. Thanks for the cool images on my profile!
Comment: Wow your hometown is so beautiful!!!! How have you never received a postcard!?!?! I may have to send you one now!!!!! Anyway my hometown is pretty small, but there was a civil war battles that was fought right in the town!!! I live not even 5 miles from it called The Battle of New Hope Church!!! There isn't really anything else interesting at all considering how small it is, but it's still a great community! Not to small, but not to large just right!
Anyway thank you for the amazing comment and tour! Have a great day/night and happy swapping!
P.S I forgot to answer the question!! I lost count around 10sh! I got distracted!!!
Response: My neighbor does a lot of civil war reenactments. I bet he knows all about the new hope church battle! It's so awesome to see him get all dressed up :P very cool that your town has that kind of history.
Postcards are fun things to collect. I have actually gotten a couple but I've never sent one! I know some people that swap them religiously! One of them does postcrossing.comaand gets a lot from different countries :D maybe you should try that site out if you haven't already! Although I did hear that international stamps and postcard stamps are going up in price D:
Comment: Thank you for the lovely comment! And such a gorgeous kitty picture, he (or she) looks so much like my Loki! I added a picture of Loki to my profile. That one was taken a few months ago, he's 1.5 years old now and weighs about 12 pounds. He won't be fully grown until he is four or five years old and I heard from other wedgie owners that they really start growing when they turn 2. He's getting furrier everyday, when he should be having his summer coat! Your Lily is absolutely gorgeous and looks a lot like Loki (the shape of the paws and the fur, the ears and eyes)! She must be part Norwegian at least!
Response: That's so funny! I looked through a lot of Kitty pictures and that one just called to me! Loki is beautiful! <3 we got lily at the pound and we thought maybe part maine coon or Norwegian.
Your Kitty is just soooo pretty. He probably knows it too hahaha he's gonna be a big guy! He's already 12 pounds O.O give him pets for me! I've never met a Norwegian forest cat before :P
Comment: Thank you so much for the stickers and note. Loved the little puffy stickers and the fairy and bird cage. You even included a letter "H" will definitely use in my scrapbook. Very thoughtful swapper!
Response: Aww! Thank you! So happy that you liked what I picked out for you <3
Comment: Leah, thank you for everything you sent. It will be used. Looking forward to trying the tea. It has been brutally cold here this winter. Sorry you missed the whole swap, it was really fun. It will probably be up and running in a month or two. Shirley
Response: Oh awesome! I'd definitely like to participate in the next one! It did look really fun :P
Comment: Sadly it did not make it all the way! Though I think most of the things made it through and I received it in another envelope encasing it. I LOVE the pixelated bow and origami(: Thanks so much, have a great holiday season!
Response: Wow! Sorry that happened! It must have gotten torn open! So glad you received it though O_O
Comment: Hi Leah I've tried to rate you twice before and the server was down. Sorry for the delay! I wanted to Thank you for sending out the fun assortment of stickers and It is always a plus when all are ones,
I don't have. Stellar job! Hope you have a great day!
Response: Awesome! Thank you for rating, glad you like the stickers I picked out :)
Comment: Oh! Christmas came early what a wonderful package full of goodies! The kids love the toys. Oh cool cane slices do you know the COE? oh and a bunny penny and colorful cranes its all so neat thanks a million! You should join my rock swap. Love it! ; )
Response: I don't remember the coe I've had them for so long! I'm not sure how well they'll work for fusing most likely they're 104 but I thought you could give it a go since I wasn't going to use them! I'm so happy thatyou like your package and I definitely want to do the gem swap :)
