Comment: Michele, what a super cute pattern you chose, and how beautifully you embroidered it! Thanks so much for the great "Monday" towel, and for your sweet letter...I'm hoping to join your Wednesday swap, soon as I get another project finished!
Comment: Loved my Monday Dish towel, color was great, I keep my coffee filters in an old tea pot, I remember it as enamelware, cream with a blue top, I liked your color better, looking forward to Tuesday swap.
Comment: I LOVE the little duckie bag - so cute! I'm going to give it to my little Zaya for her bathtub toys, or maybe her mommy will use it to hold her toys on the plane. I also love the little container and the charms. I want to make some of those cool containers! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful things you sent me! I love them all â™¥ I'm a big fan of Land O Lakes drinks and I love all things Wonka. I cannot get them here but I can buy them online :o)
Comment: Thank you, Michele! I love the Mexican influenced embroidery towel you made me - so pretty in my kitchen. Your card was awesome as well. Yes, I'm counting down the days until May 21st (our last day of school). I'm looking forward to a couple of months of Azalea time!! =)
Comment: Thank you for such a cute and sweet package! I love the sugar egg, that is so neat. I haven't seen those here. It's getting hot over here too! I missed the deadline to start my garden. I started it this time last year and they looked great but then they died when it got too hot in June :( Maybe next year! Happy Easter & Spring!
Comment: Wow! I love that white choco with the strawberries! And everything is better with sea salt- thank you so much, I am totally spoiled because you are my swap partner so often. The choco bugs are adorable..
Comment: Yayness! I saw the photo on gmail right after I opened the package. THe chili has given me a hankering for something spicy. THere's no good chilli over here, so I'm definitely trying this one out with ground turkey (and following your advice with the recipe) The nights are still cold on this side of the planet, so tea's a great (and cold tea on hot days is even better!) treat. Thank you so much for the resend, I love this package- you take so much time picking out everything. <3
Response: Glad this arrived along with the other swap! I hope the mail service between our two locations is kinder in 2015! :-) Looking forward to swapping with you again.
Comment: AHAHAHA! It ARRIVED!! And I love every bit of it. It got here on 23rd in the afternoon and i just opened it. I love every bit of it, especially the nori. I want to try to make guacamole next week- with a couple of tortilla chips! Those chocolate cornflakes remind me of my childhood; I used to make a similar dessert using cocoa and cereal (we didn't get chocolate cereal at the time). The salad dressing will be a great addition for tomorrow's salad with grilled shrimp. THANK you so MUCH for these treats.
Comment: You intentionaly spoil me! :P Every swap i get from you just blows me away and this one did to (i really have to get you for a send to partner someday, because i have a lot of catching up to do). I tried sweet popcorn once and didn't like it, but the snack you sent me changed my mind. And the fruity snacks... they should be gone by friday, as i want to hold on to at least one for my birthday (i was hoping for something like this :D). the brownie brittle is gone... i admit that it was gone just as i opened the package, as my cousin loves brownie anything and i couldn't say no to her as she was leaving for portugal. The packet of that interesting spread? i'm holding on to untill the weekend so i have something new to try :) Thank you thank you thank you again and again :) You always pick the best edibles to send :) :) :)
Comment: Thank you for a wonderful package Michele! I already broke into the Pumpkin Pie ones. Russell Stoffers is perfect because I haven't tried these yet! And I'm excited about the starbursts candy corn flavor!! We have handed out candy in the past but it's pretty slow on our street where we live now. I dressed Zoey up as Cinderella last year. I'm sure we'll find something cute for her this year! Guess I should be looking LOL! ;) Thanks again <3 <3 <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the fabulous box full of berry goodies! The jam (which was the first thing I opened and which looks delicious) has gone into my bag to go home with me tonight; the various snacks have all gone into my box of snacks to have while working! (It was getting very low so it's wonderful to have refilled it!) And I'm eating the lollipop while I type. I too shop a lot at natural food stores so appreciated that part of it too. Thank you for such an enjoyable swap!
Comment: Oh, Michele! You made me a Day of the Dead mermaid!!! That's a really special envelope - thank you so much. It goes on my "keep forever" cork board. The letter was very sweet too. Hope you're enjoying your trip!
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! Would you belive me that i've never had chili in my life? It's one of those things you always see in movies - now, i'll defenetly finaly try it (here chili is just a seasoning and the nearest thing to the dish is probably goulash - but it's still lightyears away different). i'm cooking on the weekend, so i'll defenetly use some of the things you sent (now i only have to figure out what i should try first).
And the fruit candys are devine! Awesome taste - i wish we had them here or at least anything similar (it reminds me of the mini haribos, but the flavour is not even remotly as good as these). oh, and the carousel? wow, i've only seen plactic and... well, not so detail ones. This one is just, a peice of art :)
Comment: What a yummy package of summery foods! Everything looks delicious! I love Annie's and the tea looks wonderful - it's so funny, a few months ago I bought a box of Numi savory tea for someone in another swap and I was mad at myself for not buying some for myself to try because it sounds so interesting - now I can try it! The spices look amazing and I already have some ideas for things to try them in. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap!
Comment: What an awesome package I just received! It really is a "Special Delivery". We probably have similar tastes because I just LOVE everything included in the package. The chocolate looks yummy, can't wait to try it while watching a movie this week end. I already had the fruity snack, so delicious, where do you get these? In grocery stores? I never tried the color catcher, but I'm sure it will be perfect for my work uniform (it's navy and the color always "bleeds". As for the fabric, I'm sure I will soon find good use for it as I'm into sewing lately, thanks for sharing. Finally, a big thanks for the gift card, one of my current chemo buddies is in the US so I will send that to her, I'm sure she will appreciate. Thanks for hosting this fun swap.
Comment: Yipee! Local candy! I am super excited. Of course you had me at the star ones. LOL. My dog left with my daughter-in-law so these chocolates will definitely help ease my saddness. Not to mention my daughter graduates Saturday. Sigh. Thanks for everything. Perfect gift and timing for me.
Comment: You always think of everyone! My kitty loved the little feathered roll (I'm hiding the rest of her toys) and tried to chew her way intot he bag of turkey treats. I think it's her way of saying "thank you!" And a special thank you for the pralines. The tea was perfect for my afternoon tea-break and I just can't wait to try the brussel sprouts. :3 (time for another trip to the Farmer's Market!)
Comment: Can you beleive i just got the swap yesterday? I ADORE the stickers. We do celebrate Valentines Day- the new cupcake businesses are sure to exploit the little love-fest. I've only celebrated it once or twice- but as a friendship day. And I also feel honored to have met you. You were my first friend on swap-bot and will always be #1. ;)
Comment: As always, I am amazed at the variety of goodies you've sent me. I haven't tried any yet - I'll wait till after swimming class tomorrow. I did try the trail mix and love those Goji berries- pity they aren't available in Peru.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package. I love it all; I can't wait to use the burlap ribbon,and the ribbon and roses. The "kiss" lollipop made me giggle. The heart wreath got a little squished but I fluffed it and it is hanging by the computer so I can enjoy it. Thanks again for putting together such a wonderful swap.
Comment: Thank you so much Michele for the package full of edible goodies & the lovely card that came with it! I appreciate the time you took writing about your breakfast habits and I agree that most of the typical breakfast choices are not suitable for mailing! I have heard about grits but I never had any, so I will definitely give them a try!
Comment: Oh my goodness! Michele! What a package - thank you so much :) I am afraid to say those M&Ms didnt last very long (nor did anyone else get a look in!) - I have put some of those yummy treats away for Christmas - tho James spotted the crackers, so they didnt last very long either! (He says thank you very much!) And the nutmeg was a brilliant surprise - Kari sent me one a long time ago and I havent been able to replace it over here - so a HUGE YAY for you! XXXXXXX
Comment: Your box was on the front porch, and my husband was disappointed that it was for me- but of course, I shared! We both enjoyed the festive contents~ thank you very much! Outstanding, as always!
Comment: Thank you so much. The towel is lovely, you do nice work. I immediately hung it on my oven door for all to see. The hot chocolate sounds delicious, my daughter was eyeing it, she loves coconut, I might have to share:)
Comment: Michele, thank you for the beautiful Halloween swap items! The DotD tote is so cool ~ I hung it in my craft room for now so I can just enjoy looking at it before I actually start using it. I really like the towel you made. It's so "me". And no worries about melted chocolate. I took the box inside right away so it didn't sit outside at all. Thanks so much for joining my swap! I had hoped for a few more participants but I think the postage these days tends to scare people off. But the three of us had a great swap anyway. =)
Comment: What a lovely swap and package. I shared the pretzels with my family and we all loved them. The Haribo gummies i kept for myself; I wanted to eat them slowly, but they barely made it through the weekend. You always put together such outstanding swaps. <3
Comment: Thank you so much for this fantastic package! I'm already in love with the BBQ peanut squares (what an odd, delicious thing!) and my favourite flavour SW taffy is blue. And I still have most of the things left to try, what a treat! You rock!
Comment: Oh, well. One of the best packages ever recieved. I still have 3 envies to open but still, the best gifst from the best swapper and friend! And in such a hard time of my life, having a surprise to open everyday, what a GREAT way to recover! ;) THANK YOU so much, really.
Comment: Thannks for your answers Michele. It would be cool indeed to be Macgyver and I love you comparing your mind to Marrakesh. It was really interesting to find out why you never got into medicine!
Comment: Thanks a lot for the wordy version of this swap! Your tacos answer made me so hungry =P I can totaly feel you regarding gummy candies ..when I start to think about them I'll keep on being obsessed until I have at least one. I also loved your grandparents answer because it truly feels how much you miss them and how special they must have been !
Comment: Oh yum! As always, superb package!
I love the jelly bellies. How I wish we had more varieties here. I tried the Mexican treat and we'll be tucking into the Twizzlers tomorrow! ;) But I'm not sharing the skinny cow chocolate..ooh, my mouth's watering already. :D
Comment: Hi Michele, your package arrived yesterday. Wow, those chocolates and pecan pralines look so so delicious! Can't wait to try them! And tea sounds lovely too, have to save it for the very few really warm days we have in Holland! :-)
You are lucky to have such a nice candystore in your neighbourhood. Thanks again for the lovely package!
Comment: Amazing package! I just love everything. The bag is perfectly me and so well made. I have already put it to use. As for the edible part of the swap...let's just say it was hard for me to share because they were so delicious. I really enjoyed learning why May Day was so special to you. Thank you for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Thank you for this very unique and beautiful steampunk bag! It's a useful size too~ I'll use it for my CD/DVD library check-outs, which often get rather awkward to carry with out dropping some. Your choice of design and colors is wonderful!
Comment: Your box was waiting on the porch when I got home from errands today, I love when that happens ^o^ Thank you very much for the Lammes candies, half are already gone! And I enjoyed your note too~ yay for Trader Joe's! Those gummis are goooooodd....
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful boxful of bounty ;- } I love the little egg with the chick inside! I already have started nibbling on the marshmallows, and I have some buttermilk to use up, so blue cornbread is on the menu. Thanks for another wonderful swap.
Comment: Wow, I certainly didn't expect all of that to be in the envelope.. thanks! It was great hearing about your home and all of the things that make it special.
I actually have a friend from college who went from NY to FL and now lives in (and loves) Austin too.
Response: Glad you enjoyed the swap! If you can stand the heat and the allergens, Austin is an awesome place to live. Small world that you know someone here! Thanks for hosting this fun swap.
Comment: ok, now where to start... the card (since i always read it first) was one of the most awesome cards i have ever seen (the mail-box with mail... i love the concept of mail in mail :D)! And everything was so perfect for me! I can't wait to try the ramen (so different from the things i usually have - is it just me or is it quite big?) and the TSO's looks so yummy; to bad i already ate today LOL and i've never had coconut pocky before (i love coconut! <3). And all the drink mixs (i've never seen a smothie mix before... and the tea and coffee is perfect: already made myself a cup). And the fruit strips (they were "confiscated" by my friend when she saw them - apparently super... wouldn't know -have to remember to open my packages in private). the fortune cookies were intact (the strip told me to smile :) :D) THANK YOU FOR THE AWESOME PACKAGE!!
Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed this swap; your profile made you really easy to shop for! I'm glad your friend liked the fruit strips. I'll have to send some just for you next time! :-)
Comment: Thank you, Michele. Love the Lammes candies you sent...yum and gone! The colorful wool hearts are hanging above my kitchen window, offsetting the rain outside the window....lol!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Response: I always enjoy sending to you, Karen. Hope you have a beautiful spring in your part of the world!
Comment: Thank you for the sweet swap. Everything was so festively packaged, even the box caught my eye. Please tell me, where did you get that vintage valentine bag?
Happy Valentine's Day!
Response: I'm late in responding, but the vintagey Valentine bag was from Hobby Lobby. There's also similar paper in the scrapbook section. I love the style too! I'm glad you liked the swap, and I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
Comment: Another beautiful, generous package from you! You must be getting weary of sending to me though, it seems you're doing that plenty these days.. The pumpkin butter inspired weekend scones.... thank you very much!
Response: I love sending to you, Wendy, and always hope to send something you can't easily get where you live. Yum, pumpkin butter and scones!
Comment: I love the beautiful embroidery. It is is so intricate and looks fabulous! I have been looking for the perfect sized project bag for my needle felting and this is it. I am so excited about how lovely it looks and how useful it is. Thank you so much!
Comment: I never had a swap partner 3times in a row but I absolutely love all your packages.. I got this one today and it was heaven in a box !.. I can not wait to try out the pancake's mix and salty caramel chocolate !!.. and I love the lucky charms cereal so the bar was just perfect, thank you, wish I could rate all the hearts in the world :)
Comment: Awww It was worth the wait! The pop up card is just amazing! What a nice idea you had! The candy is much appreciated both from me and Sergio :) the hibiscus drink was in my sister's package but I could taste it just once so I'm glad I have a sachet all for myself :) THANK YOU PS/ haha "talking parrots" that's a fun like!
Comment: Can't tell you enough time how much I loved the package. Dia de los muertoes is a festivity I've always wanted to attend. I'll be saving the chocolates for later, but I tucked into those candy corn (Lammes is now my favorite brand. Period) and the sweet tarts. Everything was delicious and so beautifully decorated.
Comment: Your list was charming! I really like the pop-up card. I was inspecting it very closely to see if maybe I could make a pop-up card too. =) I love, love, LOVE the tote!!! I especially like the fact that I won't see another one just like it. And the gummie bears...yum! Thank you for a great mood lifting package!
Comment: Your box is so classy! I was enjoying a cup of cardamom tea when it arrived and so adding a praline to my break was easy. I love how it all came from your farmers market! Everything is lovely, thank you so much!
Comment: I am rating you whilst drinking my pumpkin chai latte.. for that alone you would get tons of hearts <3 Opening your package instantly brought a smile on my face, I loved all the lovely little packages and flags .. all so well organized ! The perfectionist in me couldn't resist thinking this is what a proper swap should look like. I loved all the goodies you enclosed and can't wait to try them ! Thank you again for sending such a lovely swap <3
Response: Glad you enjoyed the swap. I had a fun time selecting different items from around the world and getting it ready to send to Greece! :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable little house! I love it. I especially like the french knot flowers along the bottom edge. This was a fun swap.
Response: I'm happy you like the little house. I love making them! I want to put those little flowers on every one but am resisting for the fall months! I see that we're set to be partners again on future houses. Yay!
Comment: Thank you so much Sunshine Michele for yet another wonderful package!..no matter how simple the swap may be but it's always grand and FUN when it's from you! I love the biscotti snacks and my boy love his milk straws! Thank you thank you!!
Comment: Wow what a wonderful swap! It came at half 7 this morning when I was still half asleep but what a package to wake up to. It took both James and me to get into the box lol but every thing inside is lovely. We put some of the pop tarts in the freezer and had them for pudding tonight and they were delicious. The pop tart holder is perfect for keeping my kawaii memo paper in and its pretty which is all ways a bonus lol. I have just put some washing on to wash with a couple of them colour catchers in, I have been wanting to try them for a while. Thank you for such a thoughtful swap!!!
Comment: What a lovely little house you sent me! I just love it! And you're right, they are so cute I too want to have a whole collection! As you know, I'm not an expert sewer but I do believe I'm getting better at it, and I do love these swaps, thanks for hosting them! :o) I was especially happy to get one from you! :o)
Comment: Everything was so special, your fancy food boutique sounds wonderful and so does Georgetown! Thanks for all you sent, especially the cute little bowl (it's the perfect color!) and the spread knife! The girls will be so happy about the sparkling band-aid as well! :o) Thanks again for a great swap and for a very fun group! Long live the Edibles Swappers International Group! :o)
Comment: Thanks so much for your package Michele =D I don't think I've ever seen so much cuteness all together!! And so many new things to taste. So far we just had the Goldfish crackers and loved them! My cat is also really grateful..when I open a package he always has to check check it, waiting for the box to be his and this time he had an extra treat =D You were really so thoughtful!!
Comment: What a great package, wish I could give you far more than one heart! You so clearly read my profile and went above and beyond to send items that I would love, including wrapping it all in polka dot tissue paper and including such a sweet note. The mug rug is just adorable, I love, love your fabric choices. The cookies are fantastic♥ and truly live up to their brand name. The cold beverage was a perfect choice since we are already into the triple digits here. Thank you for hosting this swap and thank you for being a wonderful swapper!
Comment: Hehehe. Nice to see you again. As always, you've outdone yourself on the swap. I love the Reeses Chocolate coating (great excuse to tear into a gallon of vanilla ice cream this weekend!). The granola will be part of my yogurt and fruit breakfast tomorrow and my mom and I already tucked into the delicious, freeze dried pineapple.
I tired keeping to my diet and saving the rest of the goodies for later, but the habaÃ±ero praline was feeling suicidal and jumped into my mouth without any warning. I swear I tried to stop it.
What's worse, the fudge is looking quite lonely and depressed now...
Comment: I absolutely LOVE my May Day basket, Michele! It's hanging on a doorknob and is now a permanent part of the room - just too pretty for only May. =) It's been really hot here (100 degrees hot!), but I rescued my package from the heat just in time to save the candy from totally liquifying. I did have a taste of the truffles before popping them in the fridge to set back up - delicious!! I've really become a fan of dark chocolate of late. Tomorrow is David's b-day, so that lava cake will be perfect. What an all around great package...THANK YOU!!! xxxooo
Comment: What a nice swap, thanks for sending so many different lollipops ! I must admit I joined mostly for my eldest girl who absolutely adores lollipops and she has been spoiled in this swap! Thanks for also including a little something for me, you know I love these chewy pralines so much!!! I really enjoyed being part of this swap, thanks for coming up with the idea! :o)
Comment: I loved,loved,loved the little duckies washcloth and the bag. I wish I had your skill. You made my swap extra special with the hot sauce (which will be spicing up my life Monday <3) and your favorite corn/soy chip. ^^
Comment: As always.. AMAZING! So many sweets! I especially loved the Girl Scout Lemonade cookies and the small box of Jelly bellies (perfect size to carry around in my purse) and I'll be sharing those rabbit cotton tails with a friend (but I won't be sharing those cookies and cream eggs. ;P). Thanks a million for a fabulous swap - you made my week yet again. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely chains - I cant wait to put them all together! What a great swap :) I have got the "bug" and have been making so many chains - thinking perhaps Christmas presents (lots of different colours in my wool basket!)
Comment: You're right, we are very efficient with our packaging indeed! ;o) The girls were as excited as me to open your swap and there were lots of shouts and laughter this morning when they saw all the snacks you included for them! Everything is fabulous, as always, but special thanks for the chocolate pop-corn, I didn't think those even existed! ;o) I already tasted the peanut butter pretzels which are delicious and I can't wait to try everything else you sent! Thanks for the magazines, the stickers and adorable mini-punch. The coaster and spoon are extra special as well, I hope you don't mind giving the spoon to my mom who actually will use it for coffee! I just loved everything and it would take a whole page to properly thank you. I feel very blessed swapping with you Michele! :o)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the Ying and Yang you sent :) The Mac and cheese was my lunch on this cold, busy day, and (believe it or not I have never tasted it), it was pretty good! Have yourself a lovely Valentine day.
Comment: Dear Michele, thank you so much for the lovely and thoughtful package I received today! Once again, you sent me more than it was required by the swap guidelines and made me really happy by taking into consideration my likes. I loved everything-and the felt cupcake bag that everything came in was really great. I will keep the chocolates to share on Valentineâ€™s day and I will be definitely making cupcakes with the heart decorated liners and sprinkles. Thank you so much, once again, it was a pleasure! :-)
Comment: I received your New Year's popper this morning. What can I say? Everything is absolutely fabulous, as always. You truly are the 'bestest' swapper, Michele. The fabric is just perfect and so is the blue rik-rak ribbon. The "box" you sent it in was just too adorable for words and I'm so in love with the card you included! And of course, I already enjoyed some of the lovely edibles you chose for me! I feel spoiled, once again! :o) Thank you!
Comment: OMG! You always know what to send.
I loved everything you've sent me - and so did my parents (a special thank-you from them too).
I can't wait to try the cranberry bar and the brittle, although I do intend to share (I've got my New year's resolution to stick to, after all ;) )
The little armadillo is cuddle next to my longhorn plushie, they look so cute together. We do have armadillos in the Amazon -giant, endangered ones that often end up as food. ;.;
Comment: Thank you very much for your wonderful package! I received it today and it was so nice to open it, because you had put so much thought into it. I really liked that you chose me that tea package, I love Celestial Seasonings teas and also this one tasted great! And I've never tasted sugar cookie tea before. :) No, we don't have Godiva chocolates over here, but I now wish we would have because they were in such a pretty little gift box and they tasted so good! I will save the candy canes for some other day, so that I won't eat everything at once. ;) Thank you very much and I hope you had a nice Christmas!
Comment: I'm so impressed with the lovely gifts you sent for this swap- especially the ceramic dish! I will keep it in my kitchen for a spoon rest and think of you often. Everything was interesting, tasty or useful- thank you!
Comment: Ok, I confess. I read the card and I completely agree - I'm so glad we 'met' here! Don't know how I'm going to wait to open the goodies.... but thank you in advance for making my holidays special!
Comment: Speechless... You really outdid yourself! I don't know what to say, as soon as I opened your package, I felt so spoiled. You know, I went looking for halloween decorations these past few days and I was getting really depressed by the lack of pretty things halloween-related here in Brest. And then, this morning, your package arrived and it was full of many wonderful things. EloÃ¯se and Adeline opened it with me and there were "ooooohs" and "aaaaahs" everywhere! I think I might still be emotional from the pregnancy because I was on the verge of crying and still am as I'm writing this. You are a truly wonderful swapper! A simple "thank you" doesn't even cover it, I don't know how to express the joy and gratitude I feel. Thank you so much Michele for your kindness and generosity!
Comment: Thank you so much for sending such wonderful Autumn goodies. Both recipes sound delicious. I haven't cooked with wild rice before, but I will give this a try. The fabrics you used for the tea towel and dishcloth are so beautiful. The leaf stitch is such a pretty finish on the edges. Enjoy that new sewing machine. Happy Autumn!
Comment: The pralines are such a treat! They are always made with almonds in France, since we don't grow pecans, or sometimes peanuts, in wich case we call them "chouchou", which is also a pet name like "sweety pie" :) What a lovely card, thanks for such a nice package.
Comment: I do really feel as if I recieved a whole ice cream shop in a box...! I am amazed! WOW! We have that type of toppings but they do not make a shell, they keep liquid. And we only have caramel, chocolate and strawberry flavor. We sure don't have that variety...oooh I am so happy I can't wait to try everything. Thank you SO much - as usual you send outstanding swaps!!
Comment: AWESOME package!!! Of course I love the magically sewn cloth bag with the lovely Mexican sugar skulls fabric - so practical. The peas are yum! I like wasabi peas but the bbq are even better - mmmmm! The sugar is fun - I might make some homemade hot cocoa with it. That sounds delicious. My first pair of yoga socks, yay! I'll use those this winter. And last but not least, loved your colorful card. THANK YOU!!! xxxxooo
Comment: Thank you SSSSOOOOOO MUCH for a great package! As I came home from the postoffice I had coffee with the cinnamon coockies and I loved them! At night we had a glass of wine with the crackers, and we loved them! All the others look great, I'm keen to try the Jerky and the chocolate (I keep them for the weekend...Haha). Thanks again very very much!
Comment: I love you. I never did stock up on the Jell-Os, so they are a very welcome treat. I can't wait to try out the sauces - the only problem is- I can't decide which to try first. :P
The shot glass matches my desktop to a t, so it'll become my pencilholder.
Comment: Oh Michele - what a package! Thank you SO much - where do I start?! I guess the soup - I think that needs to be framed and hung on the wall! LOL! The cake cases are gorgeous - We are planning a Summer party, so they will be perfect for that :) All the mises and snacks and jelly belly beans will be gone in a flash - you know how we love to try new things. And now I need to collect all the different fruit and veg containers! Thank you again for sending big smiles to my house - we needed that :) XXX
Comment: Wonderful selection...and would you believe that none of the fabrics for this swap (including the ones I sent) are duplicates? It's amazing! Thank you so much for the lovely fabric squares, Michele.
Comment: It was really special to find your letter in my mail box today..my very first mail at my new apartment =D I loved to read your note and get updates about you and your family! The fruit candy is already gone and I'm intrigued by the half tea/half lemonade which is something totally new to me!! Thanks Michele =D
Comment: You truly were able to capture the spring/easter-y spirit with you swap Michele! Opening your packages is always like opening a treasure box. Thanks for sharing some of your fave Easter treats! I do really love the jar as we don't have similar ones over here ..it will be perfect to keep my sweet treats and the cupcakes holders will definately put in good use for the housewarming party =D *hugs*
Comment: It is always such a pleasure to have you as my swap partner. I love the hot pad and the special fabrics that you chose. It will always be special in my kitchen. You made the postcard as well. You are so talented! Thank you so very much!
Comment: What a beautiful towel! It will go very nicely in our kitchen although I won't want anyone to use it because the embroidery is so pretty. And the bbq rub will be well used. I love rubs and we love barbeques. And your very sweet note was the icing on the cake. Thanks!
Comment: What a yummy package! The Milka eggs look sinful! I can't wait to just sit and indulge. Thanks for the hanuta wafers, they will be in my purse for a quick delight when things are not going well at work. They won't last long! Thanks for angeling the candy bar also! Your packages are always so great. Thanks!
Comment: Your eggy delights arrived safely. Zev is grinning wildly, completely thrilled by the car you sent. It was a true blessing as I was trying to explain before we opened the box how we would wait to open the eggs inside. He was dubious. Thank you for your wonderful kindness.
Comment: First off, thank you so much for sending something to Sienna in the swap! I really created a monster! She was delighted to receive something especially for her! Love all the little goodies! You are brave to do the egg carton (I ended up making felt egg ornaments to hold my goodies I sent out!) thank you again!
Comment: Ah! See? THAT ' S the problem with swapbot; there's no "555" rating and not enough hearts. I simply LOVED (add a few healthy hearts behind that) everything you sent me. I already tried the raspberry rub on my grilled turkey and it came out delish! We also scarfed down a few of the Lem<3nades Girl Sc<3ut c<3<3kies. :D The Jell-Os shall be murdered next! Buahahaha!
Comment: What a fun package of gpodies I cant wait to try them all! I have never seen the koolaid like that the kids will love it! The soup will come in most handy as it is -32c here today!!! brrr. Thank you very much for a thoughtful package!!!
Comment: I received the cutest pink chickens in the mail today! They are adorable. Thank you so much, I love them. The seller wrapped them up so cute in pink tissue and enclosed a lovely card that said who they were from.
Adding: I got a rock! With my name on it! Thank you so much, I will put in the garden and think of you when I see it!
Response: It surprised me to see those vintage pink chickens on your Faves, but I thought they were awesome! Enjoy. ;-)
Comment: A heart shaped box of chocolates!!!! How sweet! (Sweet of you, I mean.) Your note was so nice - about your mom giving you a heart box of chocolates every V Day...=) Thank you. I'll probably gobble them up this evening!
Comment: Your box-o-snacks arrived. Thank you very much being so generous in what you sent. I've got the cheese in the refrigerator. It said "refrigerate after purchasing." Do you think it's ok? In any case, everything looks good and will definitely be consumed.
Response: Yea! I'm happy you liked the box-o-snacks. ;-) The cheese wedge should be fine. They're shelf stable and are displayed unrefrigerated at the grocery stores. I store them in the fridge before eating, and they're really good on celery. Enjoy!
Comment: Your farmer's market is inspiring. I'll have to visit some of the larger ones in our area to see if they compare. The lovely biscotti and teas were even more delightful for being wrapped (I'll need to do that more often--again, inspired). Thank you!
Comment: Michele - the package you sent me was so wonderful! The fabric is GORGEOUS, the cute "whimsey" jar of notions, and all the other little extra items were just perfect! It was such a treat to receive and I wish I could give you more than 1 heart!!! Thank you again and Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Comment: Oh well, in your packages I even love the paper you use to protect the content! I am just amazed on how lovely your items are, and you thought of my whole family! my mom will be so happy to have fruit leathers again! the sprinkles will be used in my and my sister's crhistmas gifts - cookies! Thank you so much, and I underline SO MUCH! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome Christmas Card! (Texas and a steer - bonus!) I love getting Christmas cards, especially from good friends like you. I had a caramel creme brulee cappuccino today, and thought of you! Thanks so much for the treatie!! [hugs] Merry Christmas to you and your family too!
Comment: As usual, you have spoiled me once again; this time with LOTS of delicious-sounding cookie recipes. I enjoyed reading your note with the memories about each of your hand-written shared recipes. The "grocery store line indulgence" - is so shiny & new, and with more recipes to tempt me. Every year our office has a "Goodie Day," and if you want to participate in eating, you've got to bring something in. It's coming up on Tuesday, and now I have plenty of recipes to choose from. I'm also planning on bringing in some assorted vegetables (I thought red & green sweet bell peppers, and some jicama) too. Merry Christmas to you & yours!
Comment: Oh what an absolutely wonderful surprise in the mail today! I love it.I love the card. It is a tradition in our family to bake cookies together during the Christams season. So the gingerbread cookie mix is perfect! I have 6 grand babes and they will love the marshmallows I'm going to hide the chocolate though! Thanks so much!
Comment: I knew right away when I saw that you would be sending to me, that your package was going to be a good one, and when I saw your box in my mailbox just a few moments ago, I started to get excited! First of all, I love the bird note card (smile). Second of all, OH MY - what a WONDERFUL, stuffed box-o-delicious-looking/sounding-chocolates you sent me. I've already sampled the "Seeds of Change organic dark chocolate with mango & cashew" bar - yum! The others look really really good too. The Lindt truffles - yes, I know these are good. In fact, I sent my partner some too. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for making my weekend!!

Comment: Hi Michele
Thank you for my terrific spring parcel, it's gorgeous! My husband and daughter will have a hard time deciding which chocolates they'll each have! ;oD I adore Jelly Bellys and I can't wait to use the baking cases with their little picks. ;o) Everything is fab, thank you so much!
Comment: Michele - you always spoil me with spices! I've never tasted Borracho Beans, but I plan on making them soon! The Stubb's BBQ rub smells absolutely fantastic too....mmmmmm! Thank you so very much - your swaps are so special and every time I reach for a spice that you've sent me when I'm cooking, I feel like I'm getting a hug all the way from Texas! :-)
Comment: I love the dishtowel, but certainly won't use it for drying dishes - its too pretty!
It will be put on display somewhere. I liked the pink tissue paper and stickers too. Best wishes for a happy spring to you.
Comment: Oh Thank you for the beautiful dishtowel! I love it! Such great stitching too! (How do you get the stitching so tight? Is it the fabric? Or just lots of practice, which I need?!) I almost don't want to use it! And the washcloth! So cute!! Thank you again!
Comment: OMG! You embroidered for me! Thank you so much for the beautiful package. The towel is beyond cute. Your recipe sounds delicious. I love that the ingredients are specifically not low fat. LOL! The flower seeds certainly have me thinking of Spring. And it was all tied up with a pretty ribbon and a lovely note. You're the best!
Comment: Thank-you sooo much! To tell the truth, I was worried someone would send me some spice I already had, me being a chef, I have a lot! But these are great, and your card was so thoughtful too. Thanks again :)
Comment: Thank you so much for a HUGE package of edibles. The new tastes feel me with joy. I'm going to try today the Green beans seasoning, The Fortune cookies are just in time(!!!) as I've invited friends to a Chinese meal in the begining of March. Of course, I'll use all the other edibles with a ot of happiness.Thank you very much for being so generous!
Comment: Once again, you went over and beyond and turned a simple swap into a wonderful, Christmas alike experience =) I really love everything you sent me and I especially can't wait to try to mixes as they are absolutely new to me! Thanks so much for all the care and dedication you put into the package! *hugs*
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely package that was waiting for me when I got back from the shops. I can't tell you how excited I was to see all the things you included! I'm going to save it for this evening and then sit down and look through everything and read your notes. And thanks for the chopstick holder and horchata too - you can't get that here.
Comment: Michele, thank you soooo much for that nice and huge bag! With all those rockets and Planets, Jakob was so excited about it, he just had to have it, and chose to use it as library tote. I had to knot the handles to make it fit for him :o)
Comment: Thanks for putting so much thought into the recipes. They will find a cozy spot in my recipe box. HA HA. Also, I love the TV dinner tray. But I rated you on the swap, not the extras although I loved them too......HA HA
Comment: Thanks so much for my snack parcel, I can't wait to try everything! My husband is very enamoured with the chocolate! I think flatbreads and almond butter are on the menu for lunch today! ;o) Thanks!
Comment: What a LOVELY swap! I'm really glad you sent me cider, because I had recieved another bag from a tag and so this afternoon I'll share a cup with my mom :) (never had it, I'm curious to taste it!). Thanks also for the cookie, the coffee and the chocolates too. BTW, about the coffee, I find it funny that they somehow make it sound as it is italian but I have discovered that there is a LAW in italy that prevents coffee producers to flavor it. So I really appreciate wheh I can taste some flavored coffee :) Thanks a lot and happy holidays too!
Comment: Thank you so much, your a great swapper! I love everything you sent! It smelled really great opening the box <3 It's so much fun trying new food and candy. Never even heard of fruit leather, sounds very strange for me (as I do a lot of leather crafting). The embroidery you made is super pretty! Thank you so much!!
Comment: You know, dear, the bright and glittery sugar skull fabric would not be so bad if it weren't on such a large scale! It kinda *screams* at you, doesn't it? lol Thanks as well for the lovely batik Christmas trees FQ - it will definitely make some great ornaments! Hugs, Terry
Comment: I just love this tea towel! To tell you the truth, I plan to use it as a table cloth on the table in the hall upon which the Christmas advent tree will go- I'll send a picture when it's ready! Thank you
Response: I am thrilled that you like it and am pleased with how you plan to use it. I will look forward to seeing the picture! May you have a very happy holiday. :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful package of goodies! I enjoyed reading your note on how you choose the different foods for the swap. We ate the spicy praline right away and it was delicious (we all really like spicy foods too!) The spice rub is going on some chicken I am baking tonight and I feel so lucky to have a jar of special and rare prickly pear jelly! Thank you for being such a great group leader too!
Comment: I love the fat quarters you sent....thanks so much for taking the time to find out just what fabric I might like....they are perfect additions to my stash and the orange 30's print will go in a 30's pinwheel baby blanket I am planning. And we love hot chocolate! Thanks for a great package and for hosting a great swap! I think Texans are the best swappers! ;-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome box jammed full of Hallowees goodness. I immediately ripped into the marshmellows which have escaped us this year(still wondering how but thanks so much), We're heading to NYC tomorrow so all our little bit sized candies are going to be packed for the long bus ride.
And the note was so nice and makes me long for little ones again(maybe just for a brief moment) Happy Halloween to you and your family and have fun trick or treating
Comment: Oh my gosh Michele! Thank you soooo much for the wonderful package of fabrics! I love the colors! I truly wish I could give you LOTS MORE hearts! Thank you so much!!! â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ Edited to add: I forgot to also thank you for the wonderful recipe! I LOVE pumpkin recipes and cannot wait to try this one..I'd been wanting a "good" pumpkin bar recipe! Thank you again!!
Comment: Wow, thank you so much for the beautiful and colorful towel, and hearts for two great recipes! I'm sitting here drinking Pumpkin Spice tea, and so you know the recipes have found fertile ground :) Two wonderful swaps in one box, thank you so much!!
Comment: You sure found a way to make an American swap unique! I'm so excited to try my Austin breakfast. A texan friend once brought us a Bruce's sweet potato pancake mix, it's fantastic, have you tried it? Thank you for the coffee too, Jeff will not notice it's not some of his, I'll bet...
Comment: I just got my package and WOW! I simply loved everything you sent. I'll be reading through the Texas book with my longhorn plushie tonight. My mom thought it was beautiful too and we loved loved the Russel Strover chocolates
Response: Whew! I'm so happy the box arrived safely and that you're enjoying it. This was a FANTASTIC swap! I loved everything you sent too. I hope we can swap again sometime. :-)
Comment: This is crazy - archived this one already after I rated you and yet here it is again waiting to be rated! I did receive your card and the snacks you sent - can't wait to use the enchilada sauce, btw! Thank you!
Comment: Another great package received from Michele. You have made one family very happy!! Sakis loved the pralines, Stefanos took the stickers (although he has to share them!) and I can't wait to use my crock pot!! Thank you very much.
Comment: As always Michele, a wonderful swap from you! I received it yesterday and EloÃ¯se is already enjoying the new yogurt drops...I like the Longhorns but not as much as the pralines... I just love the Pecan Pralines! ;o) We also already ate the organic mac and cheese, yummy!
All in all, only delicious items that really made my day!
Comment: Got the bags you sent! Lovely ones too. Thanks a lot! =)
EDIT : Received the extras! <3 the bag you sent. It's adorable! I wish I could give you more hearts! Thanks a bundle!
Response: Oh I'm glad the second half of the package made it there too! I'm happy you enjoyed it, and thanks for setting up a great swap. I have the yellow tassel you sent attached to my living room fan, so I see it and think of you each day. :-)
Comment: Thanks for sharing your memories--death is certainly hard to think about, we lost a family friend recently to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease which came on extremely suddenly.
on a lighter note, the coolest thing about ctenophores is that they make light into rainbows, and they glow.
On the embroidery note, I'm afraid I'm endlessly impatient with all things sewing so it's probably not a craft I'd enjoy doing, though I do like the end result.
Comment: Thank you so much for the books! But one of them started so scary (I think your first one :)) - are you sure I dare to read it? Thank you for biscuits, too! I'm saving the rice ones for the time kids are home again.
Comment: Yet another amazing package from you Michele! Everything you picked is so lovely: the napkins, the candles, the little polka dot bag, the dark chocolate and, of course, the poppy wind-chime! I know exactly where to hang it in the new home! I was so touched by your kindness and your nice card. You are truly sweet! Oh, and thanks for remebering my half-birthday!! ;o)
Comment: Oh Michele! I absolutely love everything you sent! What a wonderful surprise to find on my porch! The trowel feels divine - I will think of you every time I use it in my Victory Garden! Thank you so much!
Comment: Awesome package! thanks so much! And it's funny because i was just in Round Rock on mother's day weekend as I have a friend there. Your package was excellent. I especially loved the sangria wine and the tea is lovely and i needed some honey! I will definitely enjoy! Thanks again!
Comment: Yay Michele! This time your package was fast! And like always, it was a super fantastic one..I LOVE the assortment of teas and since the weather got extremely hot here too this time I will drink most of them with ice as well! I can't wait for my free week end when I will be able to taste them reading something ..=)
Comment: I don't know where to start - I'm completely amazed by EVERYTHING you put in the two boxes! I feel soooo spoiled! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I opened the small one first and after looking at everything, I just couldn't believe there was another package full of beautiful and delicious goodies to open... Everything you chose was so perfect and so thoughtful! EloÃ¯se will enjoy her gifts as she already loves her book about a "crunching-munching caterpillar"! You must be some kind of baby mind-reader! ;o) I can NOT thank you enough for everything you sent and I'm sorry for my other (very nice) swap partners, but your are the best ever!! :o)
Comment: What a wonderful package to start off my weekend! Thank you for all the yummy goodies. I love spicy food! My husband remembered the pralines from the WTA package you sent and he is so excited that we have more now. I had to hide them from him :) The card you sent was so pretty too. Thank you again!
Comment: Another fabulous package. I can't thank you enough for all the coffee. You have a wonderful way of knowing what I need and when I need it. I had just run out of coffee. This stuff will last me nearly a month!! I tried the full-city roast this morning and it was great, so was the brownie for breakfast!!
Comment: What an incredible rainbow surprise! The minute I opened the box there was a feast of wonderful colors and everything that you sent I have never tried before and I am so so excited to dive in. The caramel cookies look heavenly, the cous cous will be perfect for lunch and such a beautiful tin of tea and so much more. Thank you everything and thanks for coordinating such a fun swap
Comment: There are some amazing swappers around here on Swap-Bot, and you are one of them! Each thing I took out of the box was spot-on fantastic! You put so much thought and consideration into your swaps Michele - everything is perfectly perfect for us! Thank you for sharing a little bit of Texas with us!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful goodies. I love that you always include a nice note with your swaps. Mexican food is always the fall back in our house and Fajita's are one of our favorites. The salsa spice looks really interesting and I can't wait to try it. The re-usable bottle bag is so happy and spring like! I have been wanting to make ribs for a while, so the Stubb's will be perfect. Unfortunately, we don't have a BBQ joint on every corner. Thanks again for another wonderful package. I always get excited when I see a package in the mail with your return address label!
Comment: WOW! Thank you soo much for this lovely swap. Finn and Kai love their egg with all the candy, you made their day! I love everything you sent me. I would give you more hearts if I could :0 Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are great!
Comment: Your SUPER AWESOME swap package was waiting for me yesterday! Thank you so much for all of the great spices - I can't wait to try them all! We love fajitas, and I love to make my own salsa so they are just perfect! I've also never tried any of the Stubb's line, so it will be a real treat to try that too. The reusable shopping bag is awesome too - I'm so excited to have one that was made from recycled plastic bottles. Too cool! Thank you so much for everything!
Thanks for the super cute card and the nice note along with all the goodies. I had a hard time fitting all my goodies in the envelope too!! I thought about getting a bigger card, but figured that would be cheating!!
Comment: OMG what a GREAT package! Thank you so much, Michele, from me and my mom who is so happy about her fruit leathers. Can't wait to try the new Jell-os and the candies. Thank you thank you thank you! GRAZIE! :D
Response: Thank goodness it arrived! Woo hoo! :-) I was starting to get worried that some customs guy was eating all of our delicious foods again! Let me know if you'd ever like me to send more; you know I'd be happy to. Best wishes to you!
YOUA RE AN ABSOLUTE ANGEL! Thanks you for the marvelous Breakfast Delivery package...its more than I had hoped for...I have already ground up soem of my coffee beans...so much fun...and its delish!

The salsa seasoning will definitely be used because he loves salsa as well! This was a dream package for him! LOL!
