Comment: Thank you so much for the cross package. A wonderful selection of crosses. I was wondering how you found a double sided magnet until I realized it's a bookmark, it's marking a page in my Bible now. :) Thank you very much for the crosses.
Comment: Thank you Vicki, I love it all so much ( I cheated and opened them early because my little girl was with me and kept saying 'open' 'open') I especially love the beautiful bird embellishments and the gnome decoration :) thank you so much for this generous package xx
Comment: Oolala! Yippee! It's my lucky day! I am so thrilled with my package! Today I opened my Martha Stewart treat bags--SO cute! Thank you for packaging everything so nicely. I will truly enjoy this until Halloween. (I know I shouldn't but I will probably open some early...haha...I'm BAD at waiting ;+)

Comment: Thanks for all the great stuff! I can't wait to go through the whole fact book.
Response: So glad you liked it. This was my first one to make. Thot after I mailed it of all the things extra I could have done to it - embellishments and such. Oh well, guess that just means I'll have to make more :-)
Comment: If a package could talk, it will tell me that someone from Indiana made this and put this package together with care and love :) Such a LOVELY&AMAZING package, you are a very talented artist and you are a high quality swapper. I'm so happy(and lucky) to get you as a partner.Really2 thank you, a heart isn't enough to thank all your effort and care (and for reading through my profile, so sweet of u)

Comment: Oh my goodness! I adore the paper doll that you made for me - you are right, it was a very fun swap :)
And as for the rest of the package - I have been unbelievably spoilt - my husbands eyes lit up when he saw those crackers! and Ive never seen Yankee things like that before. and the M&Ms wont last very long - will be shared with everyone! Thank you so much X
Response: Yay!! I'm so glad it all got there safely. I was a bit worried about the M&M's due to the heat we've had lately. I'm so happy you were pleased :-)
Comment: Thank you for the gifts. Iyou have earned your heart for labeling each gift with the swap number and your name! Much easier to keep track of that way for those of us who do a lot of advent swaps!
Response: Thank you! I do lots of advent seals. When I open something really special, its hard to know who to message if they aren't individually labelled. Hope you enjoy them all :0)
Comment: Wow, I got a super cool brand coin purse!! Thank you very much. I hope the one you got was equally nice. HANAU!! I am going to be there the second weekend of june. Anything I can get for you while I am there?
Comment: Thank you for the recipes, note cards, and extra recipe cards. Sometime the best recipes are not what goes in it, but the people you have around when you make it. That is the best ingredients of all.
Comment: Hi Vickie,
I just love your package, the winter card, warm socks, the tea and wallet, I adore that tea wallet, snacks and lotion. I could not wish for more. Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
<3 <3 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Comment: aww Vickie thank you so much for the awesome gifts!!! I am always losing my needles too!!! The tin will be perfect to keep them in and the case for my hooks too!

Hugs and hearts!!

Comment: Wow, you certainly deserve more than 1 heart! Not only did you send an awesome swap, but the fact that you made a special trip to your local Harley dealership AND included my boys really means a lot to me. You actually made me smile. :) Thank you so much. You'll never know how much I enjoyed this swap!!
Comment: WOW! This is amazing what a touching and fantastic package to get! You are so kind and amazing, I feel totally spoiled! Thank you so much. I love (beyond words) the gnome Door and the Gnome! All the extras are such a nice treat! Thank you so much!

Comment: Thank you so very much for the birthday greetings as well as the beautiful gifts. I just adore the book and the book marker. I would buy them both from you at your craft shows. As for the files, I was looking to pick up a cute nail file and I just couldn't seem to find one. THANKS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Comment: Hi VIcky! Thanks for your very inspiring list of positive things! Did you sent other positive things to your other partner? I mean do you have 30 positive things in your life? That would be so great! I had 20 but it was hard to think of more after having already used that I got married last month and found a supercool house and graduated :D Thanks for the bookmark, I love bookmarks!! :D
Comment: Beautiful, lovely, awesome goodness!!!! These are SOOOO cool. I'm pretty sure my husband is worried (as he should be!)
I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and attention to detail. I hope you enjoy the package I've sent you!
Response: Im so glad you liked them! And yes, he probably should be worried, lol Matchboxes & whimsey jars are quite addictive to make. At least for me anyway :0)
Comment: Hi Vicki,
Thank you for the lovely card that you sent for me.
I recived three cards this morning and I'm embarrased to admit that I didn't make note of who sent what with each card. I have given hearts to all three and I'm sorry that I can't remember what was sent by whom.
Many thanks again, Carol x
Comment: Thanks so much for the journal. I didn't get to read it yet since I got it in the mail when I was home for lunch, but I was so excited by the magnet and the additional ATC blanks that I had to tell you thanks right away!
Comment: This is so awesome. I've never seen this book. Wish I had one in college for class. Thank you so much for everything and all the attention you put into it. We do not have that craft store here, but we are at no shortage of them either. Keep up the great work. Thank you again!!
Response: Glad you liked it - the book was my favorite. I've actually purchased several and given them as gifts. Big fun!
Comment: Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!
Just because you so eagerly sent another birthday package since the first got lost, well,
that in itself deserves a heart. It was sweet of
you to send me these lovely items, I love them all, thanks again. By the way we were traveling and just returned. Thanks so much. Barbara
Response: awww, im so glad you liked them. Hope you had an enjoyable trip!
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the very nice buttons you sent me! It was such fun to get them all. Some are pretty and some are cute its just such a nice assortment of buttons! I think the odd shaped one is a sombrero. My favorite is the one you picked for the profile suprise! It is just the prettiest buttons I have ever seen! Thanks for all of the Mary Englebreit lovlies you sent me! I am a big fan and it was so nice of you to share!!!! Thanks so much for a special swap! love and peace mary
Comment: Thanks for everything, Vicki. I couldn't wait until the days and so I opened up all of the packages together. I love the bag, and it'll go into rotation for my trips to the co-op. The skewers will be fun as soon as things warm up, and the earrings are wonderful. I really was excited about everything. March will be a fun month with all of these holidays to celebrate with my new items!
Comment: I love the bracelet. My daughter was standing there when I opened it and she couldn't believe someone hand made it. She is starting to turn into a girlie girl and recently has fallen in love with pink. Thank you so much.
Response: You are very welcome :0) I'm so glad you liked it.
Comment: I LOVE the goodies and the birds will too! So nice of you to think of the outside birds, they sure need help in the winter, and my Cardinals will love the feeder! I always go to BU, here in Tulsa, they have the neatest things for birds. Thanks so much
Comment: Thank you so much, Vicki! You did a really good job with my parcel. :) Take a look at my flickr photos, how horrible the package looked like from the outside. It had a rough journey. :D But inside of it everything was fine.
Response: Oh MY! It really did look like someone sat on it - I'm glad it's safe and sound with you now and that you enjoyed the items I sent.
Comment: This was a crazy awesome package. Every item was labeled and Vicki took the time to explain why she chose it for me - everything was thoughtful and individually wrapped! It was like xmas came early. No wonder you have ten thousand hearts and no 3s or 1s in your ratings! Thank you!
Response: Awww thanks! I had a great time putting this one together - and have seen several things I wish I'd found since I mailed it off, lol!
What a wonderful box full of goodies. I was so excited going through it piece by piece. I can't even tell you what I like most. The teacup & saucer were delightful & I think I will actually use it myself. I already envision a big sling type shoulder bag made from the deep green & brown upholstery fabric & the ivory brocade window drape will make a beautiful Victoria Christmas stocking. I am delighted. Thank you so much. If there were morew hearts to give I would.
Response: Ohhh, I'm SO glad you liked everything. You were so very fun to shop for - and even now I see something and think "I wish I'd found this before I sent that package off!" Maybe we can do a private swap after the first of the year :0)
Comment: Vicki, I've been away from Swap-bot for a long while, but now I'm back and I see that I didn't rate you for this swap back at the end of the year. I'm so sorry! But I do remember you sent a great package so here's your rating! :)
Comment: What an incredible package you put together for me!!! I absolutely LOVED everything. The suncatcher you made is incredibly beautiful and will be cherished. It was just such a blast digging through all of my loot :) Thank so much!!
Comment: such a pretty journal! the perfect colors! and thank you for sharing your favorite bible verse too. though i haven't read Jeremiah yet (my husband and i are working on the New Testament), i like to learn about what other people get inspiration from. :) God Bless you!
Comment: Thanks!!! The bookmarks are great, very cute, and the notebook looks wonderful!
I'm really happy I had a nice partner, I would give you more hearts if I could!
Thanks a lot!
Bye from Argentina
Comment: I really enjoyed the matchbox you made for me for this swap. (Was that deco tape on the box?)
You know what I can't stop playing with? That cool spinning toy! :) It's like being a kid again. Thanks so much.
Response: So glad you liked it. I assume that's what they call deco tape - I actually reused a box from a swap I received. It was so cheery I just couldn't simply put it in the recycle bin! :0)
Comment: CLYDEESMOM 3/13/2008 THANKS FOR THE LADYBUG STUFF. YOU ARE QUITE TALENTED. I LOVE THE NOTEBOOK. I THINK EVERYONE LIKES PERSONALIZED STUFF. ALL THE TINY THINGS ARE CUTE TOO,ESPECIALLY THE BUTTONS. LOL LORRAINE
Comment: thank you for the wonderful package today! I love everything in it! I was just going to clean out my car today- and I'm so excited to put your car jewelry on my mirror!!! Thanks for the wonderful package! hugs to you!
Comment: I love the matchbox! Orange isn't one of my favorite colors, but your matchbox made me like it a lot more than I used too! I especially love the cockatiel sticker. =) Have a great holiday season!
Comment: Oh Wow! I just want to carry this matchbox with me all the time. It is beautiful and full of great goodies. Also thank you for the coffee. How did you know this was one of my top 5 favorite flavors?
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous postcard! I loved reading of your two favorite meals in New York. :D When the postcard arrived it had one of those bar code stickers on the front. I peeled it off because they annoy me and found the little alley cat hiding behind it! :D
Comment: Hi vicki

I never want to meet florida, but with your letter and the website, I'll put it on the list to places i need to visit! heh
