Comment: you are so excused. I totally understand, the same thing happened to me after 18 years and 3 kids. I am sorry to say my experience was horrible. I have healed. He married his " other " and then died in a tornado after 10 years. If you need to vent, chat, cry etc. just contact me. Sending healing energy your way!
Response: I am sorry for the missed swaps my husband of 13 years together came home the beginning of October to tell me he was leaving me itnhas been an awful month and a half and I haven't had the desire to do much. I have also found out he has been draining all our bank accounts and that he has another family my life and my childrens life have been turned upside down and I have to focus on them and myself now. I will one day get my business and crafting back up and running but for now it's all getting packed and I am having to find a new place to live and get my life back together. Please find it in your crafting hearts to forgive my late if not sent at all I'm truly sorry this effected as many people as it did.
Comment: Thanks for the card. I have not put mine all together yet. I think I missed one swap so I'll have to make my own. Thanks for the washi tapes. I don't have a very big assortment so can use these.
Comment: Wow! Gorgeous! I'm not sure this actually qualifies as "wrecked"--it's so pretty. I'm going to love working in it. Thank you! And thanks for the little extras as well. I'm putting your card in the journal. I hope I can do it justice!
Comment: The Georgia peaches are sweet, sweet. I will have to research why Kiing George and Georgia....maybe hjust the name?? Lets do swap again. But, surely this time it is your turn to come up with the theme....:)
Response: Just the name I make my atc's on playing cards I just randomly grab one and it so happened that it was a king so I added a bit of flare to it lol
Comment: Oh WOW! What a unique and creative pocket letter! I love it and am proud to have it as part of my collection! I really love the way you created the peace sign in the center! I appreciate all of your hard work and the great goodies!! xoxo Patty
Response: Thank you so much I am glad you liked it and after seeing your profile it only made sense to add a bit of peace to this project!
Comment: Such a wonderful Pocket letter! I'd give an extra heart if there was an option too! Loved the goodies and the extra special 2nd delivery card. It made for an extra bright sunshiny Monday :)
Response: I had planned to send the card with the pocket letter but realized that only after I had it packages and I didn't want to tear it open in fear I would damage the pocket letter so I thought it would be nice to send it as an extra happy mail for you! I am glad you liked it all! And thank you!
Comment: Thank you...i finally received your package yeatersay...it was sent to my city post office and not my home address because there was poatage due on the parcel..it was very pretty thank you and god bless happy easter
Response: Oh my how much I will repay you for that amount! I am so sorry I went to my post office to make sure I had the correct amount on there?!?
Comment: Thanks Rebecca for the beautiful pocket letter. Loved how you used the buttons and bling. Beautiful color coordination as well. Never thought of using the pinwheels. Borrowing alot of your ideas if you don't mind. Thanks again.
Response: You are very welcome and can always borrow that's what I live about crafting everyone does so many different things!! And thank you for the rating!
Comment: Holley moose and reindeer! What a beautiful and luscious pocket letter! I love love love both the back and front! The winter theme is both beautiful and precious. I love snowmen! Decorating the inside and outside of the pockets brought this to a whole new level for meðŸ˜€.it has been a very warm day today and this just cooled me off! I think my house quests are quite impressed too! Love the goodies inside too. Thank you so much. I now own 3 pocket letters and am so happy for yours to be part of my new collecting collection. You definitely have the talent to do these and do them right . I hope you will continue doing these. Happy swapping to you!
Response: Well that put a bright spot in my day thank you for such a wonderful rating!
Comment: Thank you for your PL! ^^
It wasn't one of the themes I asked for, but I still really liked it. It would be unfair to give you a low rating only because of that. You really made a nice PL with some lovely and cute goodies. Thanks!
Response: thank you for the rating and I have messaged you back
Comment: Thanks Rebecca for the pocket letter and goodies. Love the bling and sequins and buttons. The valentine woodland animals are so cute as well. I love swapping pocket letters with you. Hope we can come up with a theme and swap again.
Response: You are very welcome and I love swapping with you as well! We can do a spring/Easter private swap if you like?
Thank you for the rating!
Comment: The envelope was extremely torn around the edges. The bottom was almost completely ripped through, however, the PL was perfectly intact. And it was beautiful. You did a wonderful job. I especially loved the cute Winnie Pooh paperclip you made. You may want to put tape around the edges of the envie. Thank you so much! I'll be adding it to my PL binder!
Response: I certainly will and thank you for the information on the envelope! Glad you liked it and thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Monkey pocket letter and the goodies. I just love monkeys because they have no worries in the world and are always silly. The corner palm tree looks gorgeous. Great idea on the buttons! Gave me ideas for my next one.
Comment: Fabulous job on the Christmas card PL, thanks so much for all the fun goodies. St Louis is about 238 miles, straight down I-55, takes about 3 1/2 hours to get there. I will be in Collinsville for the CKC Convention in April, do you go to that? I am taking some fun classes and have enjoyed going for the past two or three years. I would love to swap some more. Would you be up for a Vintage children's valentines swap? Say mail out Feb. 8?
Response: thank you so much and I will be messaging you in about 1 minute :)
Comment: Today, my mail man dropped off a bag of mail... like literally made me look like a movie star receiving fan mail :D A little late for Christmas, but who cares!!! I'm still feeding off the Christmas spirit!! THANK YOU FOR THE AWESOME CARD :D
Comment: Don't know why I'm "sleeping on the job" --- but I am. Absolutely love the pocket letter! You did exceptionally well, filling it with color and delight - and the fun goodies just made my day. You are too kind and generous! Thank you! You brightened my day. I got one that turned out to be a great sorrow (with a nasty reply) so this helped restore my faith in trading. Sometimes, you just never know what will touch a person's heart, and you did mine. Thanks again...and again! Looking forward to great letter exchanges in 2016.
Comment: Can I give 2 hearts? What a great pocket letter. I like that you put things on the outside front of the pockets & that you send me maps. And monkey stickers to share with my grandson.This is one of the best swaps I've received. I did the same K words in my pocket letter.
Comment: I love my card. It is definitely different than any cards I have received and I love that. Also thank you very much for the gift tags. They are cute. This is a definite put a smile on my face mail.
Comment: Hi Rebecca, I received your cute Christmas pocket letter in the mail today ðŸŽ„. Thank you! I love it. That is such a good idea to sandwich the goodies in between the front and back cards in the pocket. When you don't see them right away it makes it fun to fish them out. And thanks for all of the goodies btw! So generous of you! My favorites are the little sock monkey stickers and the banner pieces. I'll look forward to using them all. I'll have to check out your blog! Love the colors you used, the stamped images, candy cane ribbon, all the cute embellies and paper. Thanks very much! Happy Holidays!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely handmade xmas cars it was so pretty love handmade times and thank you for the stickers.hope you and your family have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year
Comment: Kive the card! Thank you! So fun to get these homemade works of art! You have a neat design sense, Rebecca! It is great fun getting such special treats from you. Thanmks for the extra sayings to use!
Comment: Card received....I'm putting it in my "Christmas Mail Box" to open on the holiday. Thank you! UPDATED 12/28/2015: I had so much fun opening my Swap bot Christmas gifts....it was worth the wait. Thanks for the lovely card, Beautiful! Happy Swapping in 2016!
Response: I do hope you like it and I do not have that much resolve I open them right away lol
Comment: Love the letter G - so cleever. The giraffes at the bottom are the bestest. I do love that tassel--so creative! Neat back too--and wonderful goodies. Missed my lettter, tho! You might consider this: when trading with someone you've already traded w/before (who got an intro letter on the first trade) -- just come up with a "something you don't know about me" and elaborate for a few sentences. I am going to try that, as it doesn't make sense to re-introduce myself! I must say, this was a delight!
Comment: My package made it in today!!! I couldn't wait another week to open it, so I unwrapped all the wonderful goodies today!! I LOVED everything!! I think this is the best swap I've ever received! ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ Thank you!! I wish I could give you more hearts!! Have an amazing day!! Happy Birthday!
Response: I am so glad that you liked it I wanted to give gifts that I thought you would like and not just toss items from the dollar store.
Happy Birthday and I'm glad it made your day!
Comment: Thank you so much for joining my swap. Thank you also for an awesome pocket letter. I loved it!! Great idea with the cut straws. I am going to have to try that one it. I thought it was very cool. Thank you & Happy Swapping until we swap again. :):)
Comment: Thank you Rebecca! I just loved this swap and your PL was so cute. :) Could those owl and monkey stickers be any cuter??? Thank you for sharing a little bit of yourself with me! Happy swapping!
Response: Monkeys are my favorite as you already know thank you for the rating and I am glad you liked it.
Comment: Love the pocket letter! Thought you did a good job carrying out the beach theme. The buttons and the shells are really pretty. I like the bikini one that's clever. The quote is really nice and I love flip flops so all of this is perfect for me. Now, I just wish I was closer to one of my two favorite places Ocean City Maryland or Virginia Beach Virginia. I had a great time on each one. On my bucket list is to live on either of these beaches or another one in a hotel facing the ocean for a full month and being able to explore the mysteries of the ocean, the beach, the sand, the sea shells, all the tourist traps and all the fun foods. Maybe when the one in New Jersey is totally restored I'll go there. But thanks for taking me on a trip to the beach for my month of September. Thought you did a great job with your first effort.
Response: Oh thank you so much I am super happy you liked it! I was very nervous about it not meeting expectations that I put on myself, I know I've received items that I'm like "really"? So I always want to put my best self out there!
