Comment: My friend Jill is the most amazing woman I know!! Going through so much in her life, but yet when I tell her not to worry about sending my pocket letter and just get through all the things she was going through with her Mo, what does she do she still gets my pocket letter in mail! If you haven’t swapped with this girl, you are missing out, she is a beautiful lady inside and out! Thank you friend!!! Love your friend Crystal 🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️

The keyhole works great on the pocket! And all the nice items you tucked inside - will be very happily used!! And then the stacking bookpage pockets - love them, too!! Now I need to get busy adding all things beautiful things to my journal!! Thank you!
Comment: I don’t know where to begin.....the book case and mini books are just Beautiful, I love how you can embellish and I’m hoping some day my stuff looks as amazing as yours, this is why I get so nervous sending you my things I make, I feel your going to be so dissatisfied. I love your two sided paper, it’s hard to come by, love the Alice in wonderland tea idea, love how you put the gold lines to make it look like real books! Love all the extra paper, all the little items you sent in my books!! I’m just in awe!! I know I need to get bead hanging embellishments that bead is darling hanging off of book.....thank you thank you!!! So in love with them, you Rock!!! Crystal
Comment: You really do spoil me Jill! All the stickers and memo notes you sent are so lovely, even the ones you didn't think I would like! I think the shiny octopus-like ones with the angry eyes are definitely my favourite, they're so funny! Thank you with all my heart and stay safe! <3
Comment: Oh my gosh Jill you spoiled me so much with this swap! All of the stuff was adorable and I can't thank you enough for helping me out with the ratings boost. This just makes me even more excited for our new ATC swap, I can't wait for you to get it!
Comment: Oh Jill, love love love my little mini flip book you made, this was the cutest little flipbook ever, makes me want to make a ton!! Thankyou for all the extras to make another one and the washi tape and packaging was just Beautiful!! I wish I could give you 20 hearts for doing this swap for me to build up my number of swaps. Thanks friend Crystal
Comment: Oh my goodness, Jill. This is a great example of a flowish journal! Filled with so many great items. I love the papers you used for the cover front and back. Love the coffee dyed binder paper - that is just how I like it to turn out - just like mine doesn’t! Perfect die cuts too! Love it all. Thanks so much for paying attention to my profile. So many great things to get my garden journal going. And the tea will be so nice to enjoy while putting it all together. Thanks again
Comment: What an awesome lil surprise! The card is cute and the extras as awesome. The TMNT valentine cracked me up. I love these cutouts too. Hearts are, like, my favorite. I'm wearing heart earrings right now. So i really appreciate these stickers. A+++ thanks so much! Happy Valentine's!
Comment: Gosh!!! What a great big Happy Mail this was!! So nice to have so many things to unwrap and reveal....... what a beautiful flipbook you made! And SO many pretty things that you put in there for me.. I <3 It!! Coffee stained papers and music paper <3 .. and I adore all those papers you made with the beautiful borderpunch!
Comment: It's always fun to do a private swap but I have to admit yours have been my favorite. This incredible work of art now has it's own very special home in my art room. There is no such thing as too many dragonflies and this one is spectacular. The jewel tones are simply beautiful and the mosaic is so detailed! Thank you for all the amazing profile goodies. I'm am in love with the peach tea! Thank you again for such a meaningful swap. All the best!
Comment: I know you think its bad but i super like it. I love how 3d it is. Also how you used so many different types of things. It wasnt just taking one pack of things and doing the same type of card over and over. Also love the white edging on the bottom. I would love some of those to play with! Is it a punch or a die? Also super thanks for all the halloween goodies! I made a new flipbook out of them! Cant wait to show you(just have to get my lazy bum out of bed and downstairs!!) Thanks! I love swapping with you!! Cant wait for you to be all moved and have a craft room!
Comment: Hi Jill,
Thank you so so much for all that you sent! My goodness! I love every item! The Chinese Zodiac stickers...very cool. All of the beautiful cardstock...I can use in my journals as well as the lace trims, the flower and wing molds will go with my mixed media...and you did get the Kawaii just perfect! Thank you again for all of the awesomeness!
Comment: Got it and it looks epic! The two I have opened are amazing and way way better than mine! Will update rating when everything is open.
UPDATE: Wowsie! That was incredible! You went so above and beyond the description. Each day was such a fun little/big package! I love how creative you got about what you sent, you went way beyond what we normally send or what is sent on here often and that was great. Seriously, anyone who has you as a partner is extremely lucky!! It was so nice having a package to open each day. We should dothis again sometime!
Comment: First off, love the envie! Its so cool how you used a black envelope with silver and gold gel pen. Also using a matching stamp is just super cool.(also thank you for sending me a stamp to use! I love that one! The backgrounds you sent are soo cool! I want to hoard them but i will use them. Such a variety in one envelope! Love it!
Comment: Love this flipbook and how coordinated everything was! Also super love the charms. I really like charms and am excited to have more of the peach tea. I loved that when I was sick. I tried the stickles and it is so cool and sparkly! I love it! Thanks for the great package and congrats on catching up!
Comment: Hi Jill! Oh, what a darling, sweet Easter Tag Flip...I love it! Love the colors and designs of each tag with all the precious little shapes and embellishments. I am new to trying die cut images so I was loving the ones that you used. And, those bows are just to die for with their cute little embellishments. Thank you so very much for this great swap and also for the great extras!
Comment: Your tulips are great!! I was really bracing myself for whatever it was I was going to see haha... but these are very good. Take photos and go back and look at things later... save the things you do as you learn... when you look back you'll see progress you've made but ALSO you'll see how nice your work actually looks! Also: I LOVE big handmade envies! Yay!!! Thank you. The 3-d art piece you did is amazing, too... I really don't do things like that and am so impressed. I will display it all (well, not the envies, I'll use them) proudly!
Comment: Jill!!! 💜💜💜 You have made me so happy! What a wonder-filled package. I had so much fun looking at each thing, and knew you picked them just for me. Thank you for taking so much time and thought with this swap! Huhs sent! Julie
Comment: This was fab! So much fun stuff inside! I love the variety! The 3d embellishments are great! The envelope itself is really creative too! I love how you folded the paper back and made it really 3d. I cant wait to use all the stuff! We shoulddefinitely do more of these!
Comment: Wow! That envie was so stuffed with goodies! I love how you shared some of the stuff you used to make the flipbook with, that way I could get inspired from what you did and go on to make more fun stuff! The flipbook itself was amazing! I love all the cute tags you slipped inside and how many types of media you used. I just cant believe how much you sent! Anyone is lucky to get you as a partner!! Cant wait to do more swaps with you!
Comment: This pocket letter was just So pretty!! You did an amazing job. The video of me opening your happy mail should be up within the next hour. Awesome job! And thank you so much for all the extra papers and other goodies! Love swapping with you. Thank you!
Comment: Your envelope arrived torn and open! There was no note inside and I did not know what swap or who the envelope was from! Hello again...no reflection on you...”Please” don’t think I was implying that you mailed it out that way. No resend is required. Have a nice day! 😎
Response: What a disappointment! I am sincerely sorry about that. I’ll be extra careful next time.
Comment: I just opened your package and oh my goodness, I loved it ALL. Your ATC is gorgeous, I love every little detail from the seashell and coins to the little barnacles! I adore the paper as well, thank you so much for a fantastic swap!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely teas. I can't wait to try them. Peach is a favorite! Coconut sounds amazing. I also think that the orange kitty is a tabby. I know that tabby will find their way into some mail art!
Comment: Ooooh, what a fun package!! Everything is PERFECT!! You asked what I liked most? That's tricky. The manatee (manaTEA) made me laugh (out loud!) but the little mailbox is probably my favorite!! The gloves are so WARM... LOVE THEM! It's supposed to be really cold the next few days so I'm going to try them out. (And, yes! the washi is lime green! It will be fun decorating my swaps with it :) And I'm looking forward to trying the teas! The flip book will be really fun to do something with. And mmmmmmm Valentine candy. yum yum yum. Really. I loved getting a little bag of Valentine candy!! Thanks for sending such a fun, lovely package!!!
Comment: I sent you two messages about this. One on March 31st and the other one on April 14th-neither have been read and I see you haven't been online since March 5th. I will change my rating if I do receive something from you October 28 update-I received the PL for this swap and it was wonderful.Such fun things enclosed-I gladly raise the 1 rating I gave you before to a 5 with a big heart Thank You for all the extras-that paper is some of my favorite line too! Take care and keep swapping!
Comment: Thank you SO much for the awesome package of goodies! I'm enjoying a Blow Pop while writing this! LOL
So many fun embellishments! I love it all! It will take me a while to take it all in!

I'm so very sorry you are and have been so sick. You are in my thoughts and prayers! Thanks for swapping with me!
Comment: Wow!! I am overwhelmed. I love your flip book - you are very creative. How you make and decorated it, and filled it with all the goodies (love the teas). It is gorgeous.

Comment: Oh my goodness! The book is adorable! I just sat here and went thru & looked at everything in the pockets. You added some really cute things. The die cuts & peacock feather are my favorites! Loved the traditions letter, Jakeâ€™s tastes in cookies are great because Peanut Butter Blossoms are my favorite too! Right out of the oven. Yummmm! Thank you so much for all the added surprises! Love everything!!! Bling, charms, flowers and washi!! Where did you get that adorable boxed washi......so cute!! Many many thanks for such an awesome swap! â¤ï¸
Comment: I'm still learning my way around SwapBot...where is the button that gives 10 hearts?! : ) WOW! What a beautiful box packed full of goodies! I had so much fun unpacking and unwrapping everything. My New Years weekend project is going to be putting the flip book together. You are such a sweetheart for making all those die cuts and embossed papers for me. Thank you SO much. The little quotes are now hanging at my desk and the wind chill is 14 this morning so I am loving my cozy socks and chapstick. Oh, and the Plumeria hand cream is amazing! That was one of my favorite plants back in FL, it smells just like the flowers. Thank you so much for the wonderful swap and for being such a sweet, kind person. Many blessings to you in the new year.

Comment: Thank you so much for what you have sent-and sent out cards twice. The USPS is totally a disaster lately-2 swaps were lost that I sent out as well and had to replace. No need for a 3rd try. You are just GREAT.
