Comment: What an awesome swap to receive! A fun homemade envelope & postage stamps and a wonderful playing card holder and all the great playing cards (mostly new to me too!). You have a cool swap card! Thank you for everything!
Comment: Oh my stars, you have really outdone yourself with this swap! I was tickled pink with the outer envelope and all those #14’s and then opening each one just got better and better. Simply over the moon with every single thing about every single item! The stickers, the labels, the personalized stationery (have mercy) to the final embellished envie, had me beaming from ear to ear. And then I discovered the water snail mail postcard and fell madly in love with it. Too, too much. You are adored from afar!
Comment: I got a swap today that says it’s the 3rd send. Wowww I’m sorry you went through that stress. Thank you so much! I will let you know if the others arrive. Strangely enough I had 3 Christmas cards arrive in late February. Postmarked December 9th. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Comment: Hi Kerin,
Thank you so much for the swap you completed and then sent to me. The item(s) you sent me for the swap is/are GREAT!. I really enjoy receiving new items that I can use in future swaps or some other creative project(s) OR Add your project to one of My Collections.
I apologize for taking extra time in getting your rating done for this swap. I very much appreciate your completion of this swap and getting it off to me in a timely manner.
Colorado is still having problems with the mail. Mail going in and out of Colorado is continuing to be an issue. So, until this issue is resolved, please Be Patient!
Your Swap-bot Partner,
I love how you spell your first name. You, also, have lovely handwriting.
Comment: What a wonderful letter to receive, thank you. When Marnie Was There is one of my very favorite Ghibli films and I do recommend it. I love that you are slowly becoming more plant based and that some of your family is already vegan. I hope your hand is feeling better.
Comment: Kerin, Thank you so much for the awesome cards and all the goodies... you read my profile about sunflowers obviously... i love the little sunflower envelope you made... it is going in my sunflower junk journal for sure!! Thank you
Comment: Hi Kerin, thanks for the 7 playing cards. I like them all, and I don't have any of them! I also really like the "Here is a swap from me..." business card. Did you print those yourself? I wanted to let you know that the envelope was very neatly sliced open, along the whole bottom edge. Only about a 1/4 inch was uncut. When I pulled the envelope out of my mailbox I was sure it was going to be empty. I'm glad you had the cards taped together, or they probably would have fallen out. A friend of mine in another state has received mail that was sliced open too. Have you experienced this? I think it's probably a sorting machine malfunction at the post office, or it could be someone looking for gift cards, since that's what playing cards feel like. If it happens again I'm going to let my post office know. Anyway, I'm glad the cards you sent were still in there, and I love them!
Response: Thank goodness you got the cards!!! I will also take more care and use more tape another swap got hers torn too so I need to look at what I am doing on my end. I ordered the cards. I will try to look up by who and get back to you, I have had them a little bit so I don't know off hand. I am having so much fun with these playing cards swaps...... happy swapping 🥰
Comment: Good luck with the things on your list done. My problem is ... I wrote the 3 things down on the card but forgot to write them down to keep here and now I've no idea what they were. 😂🤣😂
!! I am so sorry, I got a jump on my rating as I have what they call "Informed Delivery" from USPS and when I saw your swap there, I could read what you wrote and such but I didn't have a picture of the front of the PC but I went ahead and rated ya. Then I saw the postcard was multi-shots of the Queen and I just HAD to write back to thank you for that and to say how much I love it. Thank you so much!
Response: 😂😂🤣‼️ I have to admit I forget what I am doing halfway on my way to doing it. Glad you loved the PC!!!!!!
Comment: Thanks so much for a great swap! All of the cards you sent were new to me and I LOVE the Golden Girls card! I must look for a deck like that. :) The gold one is interesting as well - I think I saw something like that online when I was searching for 'unique' cards for these swaps. Our stores locally don't have many options at all - seem to be all sold out! - so I've needed to shop online a bit. Your envelope did get ripped open, but thankfully it looks like nothing went missing! :)
Response: I am glad all the cards are new to your deck...... I have a hard time finding cards too.... it seems it comes in waves. Sorry about the torn envied I had a few other swaps ends u that way to I need to reevaluate the paper I'm using and/or use more packing tape. Have a fabulous day
Comment: Kerin, thank you for your lovely border!
The glitter silver is beautiful with it! Very classie
I will make the inside and will send you the result by e-mail!
Also thank you for all your extra cards!
Comment: Thank you for passing on the note cards! I have done the same in the past when cleaning my craftroom. hehehehehe. Thank you for all the thoughtful extras that you have included. That was so kind of you :) I love them all.
Comment: Oh my goodness, what an amazing swap! From the lovely envies, thoughtful and fabulous extras, right down to the sweet packaging, you made me feel very special today. I adore the stickers, stamps, and letter sets (Audrey!), as well as the envies you made. Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Wonderfully put together package! I was so excited to receive this mailer. This was a fun swap and I love everything you've sent. The stickers are so pretty that I am going to have a hard time not hoarding them. hahahahaha
So happy to hear that you are planning on trying out a journal swap. I really enjoy them a lot.
Response: You are so welcome..... it was a fun swap. Your enthusiasm was contagious....... lol
Comment: I'm sorry to do this but I still have not received this swap from you. I've messaged you a few times about it, last message received from you indicated you will send a receipt for the 3rd resend but that was Jan. 24. I'll be happy to change the rating when I receive something. 2/17/2019: The resend finally found me, thank you. I love snow more than any other thing about Christmas as well, except spending time with family. If there's not snow on Christmas it just doesn't feel the same. Thanks too for the starbucks gift card, stamps, notecards, and other goodies though they weren't necessary.
Response: F I N A L L Y....... thank goodness, I had faith and thank you for your patience 😊😊😊
Comment: Very lovely-I used a skeleton leaf on a recent swap and think they add such a delicate addition. Love all the colors and textures. Thanks also for the extras-atc backs and sleeves, Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Hey there sweet friend! <3 You really made me smile with your 3 of a kind jams with all the goodies. Thank you very much! I appreciate you! I hope all is good with you and that you are doing well. Talk with you soon, my crafty pal. <3
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful note and teas! Be sure and take good care of yourself, because you take care of our future (the children)! People here consume more ice cream and frozen yogurt than you would think they would for such a cold spot! Hugs from Alaska Sherry
Comment: I got this lovely Zentangle zine, and look forward to adding my bit. Assuming you did the last one that's done -- wow. Just I mean just wow. That is some serious dedicated work! It's AMAZING! I did notice you didn't sign the back cover - do you want me to put your name down for Joan? Again, wow. Beautiful!
Response: thank you for the kind words...... I loved doing it. It would be wonderful if you would do that for me.
Comment: Was this a resend or the original? The envelope had ducks on it, @Artstamper (Joan Northwood) sent it to you and @Graciepie is the originator. There is no note as to which swap it is for, but it does have your return address on it and I couldn't find any other one previously from you. I thought your page was finely done.
Response: Yes this is the original!!!! Wonderful isn't it. I was so glad I finally got it all figured out and beyond ecstatic you got it, it is such a great swap and the excitement of getting your own zine back is awesome.
Comment: Hello Kerin :-) . . . . I read your message and responding here. YAY! I received the Round #2 Zine you sent to me in yesterday's mail which arrives late afternoon at my house. I am AWED! by the page you tangled for Cecily's Zine, and I'm so jealous that THAT page isn't in my zine, but I am positively THRILLED that you told me you have added to my Zine and I can not wait to see it when it returns to me. You are a VERY talented tangler (is that right?). BTW - the little booklet is called a Zine (with a Z) because it is short for magaZINE (zine = little magazine). I'm sorry for your trying week, and please give your daughter my condolences for her tragic loss. . . . P.S. Thank you so much Again for the awesome extras you have included for me. ♥
Comment: Thank you for the cool JAM to work on and all of the extras. I know what you mean the fish out of water - I still feel that way with some of the swaps, but it is all good. thank you for hosting, darla
Comment: Hi Kerin, I got them in the mail today, thanks for the jams, kind words dear friend,and all the goodies you included!! Also loved the watermelon envelope and note card. I am going to cut that note card up and re-use those lovely watermelons!!
Comment: Hi Kerin, Thanks for the great color card to color and send on its way!! Thanks so much for all the extra goodies and the butterfly notecard and stickers and snail mail stickers. Thanks for a wonderful swap! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all of my many wonderful envies and goodies! I can tell you put a lot of thought and effort into your beautifully crafted envies!! I feel like we'd be fast friends too! Have a lovely week! Thanks again friend!
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the wonderful goodies! It really made my day :)The clear envelope was so cute! Thank you for the gift card, you are too nice and thoughtful! I just love everything, thank you so much and Happy Swapping <3
Comment: Thank you for the awesome atc. And all the goodies you included. You really didn’t have to... I under how things in life slows us down. I appreciate all the goodies you included and the atc and your envelope are beautiful🤗. I loooooooove it. Thanks again.
Comment: Kerin, I will be sending your postcard off on the next round. Thank you for the extras. Anytime you are in my area, you are more than welcome to come see my brooch collection. I have 2 more shadow boxes I have got to put together and hang up. Just running out of steam lately. Shirley
Comment: You're so sweet. Thank you so much. The doilies and notecard extras are great. You're right. I rescued Sassy from a parking garage when I was living in Greenville. She was 4 weeks old. Took an hour to catch her. I had a little poodle and she would wait at the end of my bed until he came by and then she'd jump him and they'd go flying through the house lol. I used to tell her that she was just a Sassy Cat, then it became where'd that Sassy Cat go so seemed the perfect name. I still use it today!
Comment: EEEEEEEE!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my postcards!!! Oh MY GOSH! You TOTALLY checked my profile and I'm dying! Coffee menu?!? WHAT!! Doggie, Wicked awesome Washington DC card (never seen one like that - so cool!) adorable birds, the BIKES, Leopard, and the postcrossing one?!?! GET OUT! Yes, Swapbot has become my fav go to for postcards as well. Thank you - great swap!
Comment: I know what you mean. I struggled finding a notecard that wasn't written on on both sides of the card. I just happened to get 2 from other swaps that day!
I love the squirrel and bunny card. (I think you've sent me one before.) My college mascot was a squirrel so they have a special place in my heart.
Comment: Received you're wonderful PC today that has wonderful postage stamps on it. I really enjoyed seeing you doodling art and reading the letter. Thank you very much and I hope the sun is shining down on you in your area.
Comment: Kerin- Thank you so much for the swap you sent me. I sooo love the way you decorated the envelope and the small fun goodies that I found tucked inside here and there were a pleasant surprise as well !
Comment: Can I give you 5 hearts!? Love the notecards you sent me...thank you. I have a thing for notecards!! Can't wait to visit your city one day...it's on our bucket list. take care and happy swapping
Comment: Hi Kerin, thank you for the re-send. It arrived here fast! I love the colorful beach cabins...I so want to go there! We are getting lots of our west coast "liquid sunshine" lol. I love laying in the sun at the beach...I can't wait :) peace love light
Response: it was a wonderful experience swapping with you. Thank for the patience and such a wonderful attitude.
Comment: Thank you for the goodies. I always enjoy receiving mail from you. I smile before I even open it.
Response: you sure know what to say to a gal.......! Thank you so much, I love these swaps - well all swaps. Might I also say that your profile is delightfully simple and yet jam packed full AND the sushi sticker thing cracks me up. Hope to be swapping together sometime in the future... Have a glorious rest of your day
Comment: What a wonderful envelope to open! (And how am I ever going to be able to add to this GORGEOUS card?) All the extra goodies were super, and a new Queen of Diamonds for my collection...I'm in heaven! Thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything.......... and I know, right?! about the beautiful work... I felt the same way...
Comment: This is one beautiful PC! It will be a pleasure to work on it, Thank you. It did however pop it's tape and arrived in a We care usps envelope. I can't believe you had all that stuff in there. 2 sizes of zentangle tiles stickers, 2 game pages and your note along with the PC.
Response: Oh my goodness, so sorry! Does that mean you had to pay anything........ yikes...... please let me know.
Comment: Wow! I couldn't have been happier with this box -- from the way you mailed it, to the little bits to explore...it was filled with so many things I love and it was certainly worth the wait. Thank you so much and have a wonderful New Year!
Comment: Wow! What a nice surprise! I love everything! I have to say that my fav is the Santa ðŸŽ…postcard! I really like the Christmas tree notepad too. And well, everything! Happy Swapping and Happy New Year! Jen
Comment: Thanks for an absolutely gorgeous swap! The envelope was super pretty and I enjoyed your quotes. Do you use insta? Your envelope is in some of my pictures, @lori_delene :)
Response: thank you. I am glad you liked them. I am not sure what insta is? I would love to know though is that instagram?? if so I will check it out, although Im not very good at it yet :) You are so kind
Comment: Oh my gosh! Where do I begin?? You went sooooo far above and beyond with this! Thank you for the super quick resend, and the many, many extras, too. I love everything you sent! I felt so bad that one of your first swaps was obviously lost by the PO, but you handled it like a champ and proved yourself to be an amazing addition to the Swap-bot community. I hope to see you in other swaps soon, and to be matched with you so I can spoil you back! :) I'd give you a mountain of hearts if I could!!
Comment: Thanks for the decorated PC! I'll bet you have a lot of stories driving bus! I have been to Seattle once - for three days and it rained the last day. Lots of water and I love the mts. Beautiful! Thanks again!
Comment: Kerin, I am speechless!!! This was the most extra special package I've received so far -- I didn't even know they could BE this extra special! The outer envelope that went through the mail was beautiful (with shark stamps! yay!) and then the contents only got better. I absolutely love every envelope you made. My favorites are the teal one with pink flowers (cherry blossoms maybe?) and the floral one with gold borders. AND I can't believe you filled them with stickers too! You have made my week. Thank you so so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun post !!! First off, the envelope was fun and I loved the baby envelope on the outside of the large envelope !!! All of the ephemera you sent will be put to good use.... we have a group from work that gets together and makes cards for all of the residents of our local nursing home. We are getting together this week to finish our 300 Halloween cards. All of the great items you sent will be used in this project. Again, thank you for making this an outstanding Swap for me....
Response: Oh Stephen I am so glad to hear that. I was a little worried I have to admit - your profile is awesome and I was afraid Id let you down - what a wonderful thing to do, and 300 cards - WOW...... you made my day!!
Comment: Kerin, thank you, thank you, thank you for such an awesome package!! I love the envelop everything came in, so creative and well done! And all the envelops you made are fantastic, can't wait to use them! I've never had tangerine tea either, but can't wait to try it--thanks for including 2 bags, now I can try it both hot and iced! And Michael loved the post card and tattoo --so very thoughtful and generous of you! Check out 'smashbooking' on Pinterest or Google. I love holding on to receipts and little momentos from trips and events that I attend and then I write down some memories and put it all together in a notebook/scrapbook. Thanks again, I was very lucky to get you as my swap partner! :)
Response: Thank you that means a lot to me. Let me know how you like the tea...... I'm going to go try it iced, I hadn't thought of that. It was my pleasure ðŸ˜Š
Comment: I have so much awe for what you do. I remember how awful kids were when I rode the bus. I hope they are more respectful for you!
Response: Thank you so much... there are always those certain few!!! A lot of times I can win them over by the end of the year,..... Ah, might I ask just what kind of kids were you?! Just kidding don't answer that .... lol
Comment: Thank you so so much for the wonderful swap! I had to show it to my mum because it was so beautiful and she was amazed by it :D Wishing you and your friend with the beautiful name Yvonne a wonderful day ;D
Response: Yes I will tell "Yvonne" you wished her a wonderful day, she will get a little chuckle because I had mentioned you to her. Have a wonderful day back at you!
Comment: The quote that "the best and most beautiful things in the world can not be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart" was actually Helen Keller. Even more beautiful now, right? Thanks for a great postcard. I think you and your husband should visit Saint Louis! It's great here. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Love the PC and your sweet message. I love Washington! Wish I lived up there instead of down in this crazy humidity and heat. We had an earthquake this morning and the hurricane is making weather all over the state crazy. I've got a monster headache and this PC made me smile. Thank you ðŸ’–ðŸ’Œ
Response: OMG..... I hope it all goes well for you. Take care of you! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: HI Kevin! I know it is almost 1 am and i just looking at yesterday's mail which i went and got at the end of the block in the mailbox. Went about 9 pm but was bust canning pickles. Make 3 varieties adn sell them. Small hand craft batches. Yes, i grow almost everything that goes in them except garlic. Was reading your black and white postcard and yes I LOVE IT TOO! So glad that you found a stationery store too! I remember a good one in Eugene Oregon downtown back in the mid 1990s. So i know what you mean! The card is lovely and I LOVE the hand drawn element of the space needle and liked how the artist tied it in. Beautiful. Thank you for thinking of me and sending it over my way! I have to tell you Baba totally approved of it and she gave me her little purr to let me know. She is laying on the bed now relaxing. Thanks again and have a wonderful week! happy swapping and meeting a lot of great people here.
Response: My pleasure..... have a fabulous, fabulous day ðŸ˜Š
