Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. The handmade envelope is georgeous. As a one of Christmas decorations in my home, I hang cards and postcards from around the world on walls. The one from you is in my bedroom. Soon together with my son (9 y. o.) we will bake gingerbreads and cookies, some of them will later decorate our Christmas tree. Have fun in this pre-Christmas time and Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely card and all the amazing washi's! You spoiled me! I love Christmas, especially baking cookies and planning Christmas diner, my daughter is 9 and she loves helping out with all of it. Happy Holidays!!
Xx Monique ❤️🎄❤️
Comment: Thank you for the beaytiful Christmas card. I appreciate the extra goodies
We make and eat tamales. I like the chicken. Pork is traditional.we always open our gifts Christmas morning, have lunch around 1 p.m. and admire our gifts the rest of the day while snacking on cookies, pie and cake.
Comment: Auch diese ATC finde ich echt gut gelungen und ein sehr interessantes Motiv. Vielen Dank für die tolle Post! ☺ Ich hab damals auch noch die alten Spiele mit dem "Block und Stift" Prinzip kennen gelernt. Das hatte ich bis zu deiner Erinnerung schon komplett vergessen. Hab mich auch des Öfteren elendig verlaufen und bin in der Hinsicht echt dankbar für moderne Spiele. lol
Response: Vielen Dank! Ich liebe es, in dieser Art von Erinnerung zu schwelgen. Aber wenn ich versuche die richtig alten Spiele heute zu zocken, kriege ich die Krise! :D
Comment: Erstmal herzlichen Glückwunsch zu deinen Neuigkeiten! 🎉 Zum Swap: Auch wenn du mit dem Endergebnis vielleicht nicht sooo zufrieden Bist, finde ich, dass es dir trotzdem echt gut gelungen ist. Jack ist irgendwie echt nicht gruselig und das Spiel klingt klasse. Nicht-gruselige Spiele sind mir auch heute noch die Liebsten. haha.
Response: :D Dankeschön! Heute kann ich ausschließlich ungruselige Sachen spielen. Jumpscares bekommen mir gar nicht... :D
Comment: Hi Romy, I received your amazing package today! I am so touched by the effort you put into this swap. Especially since the package was very personalised to my Profile likes. The flipbook you made me is so beautiful! I love it so much! And you added awesome goodies inside too. I am really amazed that you remembered the flipbooks I made you, I am very touched by that! I loved your detailed letter - I hope you are feeling much better now. And wow, a lot of rain! It is now winter here in Australia and where I live it is pretty cold now, but very little rain (actually have had many cold sunny days). I love all the extra goodies you sent me, I was so excited when I saw them! The little hand sanitizer is SO pretty, I have never seen anything like it before! And everything else is just amazing. Thank you SO SO much! I truly appreciate everything you have sent to me. Happy swapping!! Annabelle xoxoxo
Response: Yeah! :D I am so happy that you like everything! I was hoping to have you a my send-to-partner one day, so I could give you something in return for your amazing double-flip-book-mail. :) Oh, and the hand sanitizer has indeed a nice smell! I saw it after I brought your mail to the PO...
Comment: Wow, Romy! This package is amazing! So much fun to go through everything - and I love it all! I keep looking though and finding new things! All the magazine images, book pages, stickers, the book stamp - and I really love the way you decorated the envelope! Thank you, thank you!
Response: I thought I could be a bit crazy with the content because you like mixed media art. :D Thank you for your rating!
Comment: Thank you for so many great items! I am sure they will be useful. I love the combination of black and gold. Looks really beautiful. I already have an idea for a project with these shiny paper scraps ;) Thank you, once again & happy swapping!
Response: That`s great! Have fun with the items and thank you for your rating and the lovely comment!
Comment: I love this goat ATC :D I have been watching streams of the game and it indeed is quite a silly and I agree, it's not a game I'd personally buy or be interested at.
(And you mentioned Divinity Original Sin 2, I loved playing it with multiplayer ♡ )
Response: hihihihi.... This game is infamous! :D I loved to watch the videos of the "react channel" on youtube. And D:OS2 is an awesome game! I play it mostly in singleplayer but am doing a run with a friend right now. But the game is very dark. A bit too dark at some points - especially with the pet pal talent! Did you med the little bear cub and talked to him? My goodness.... That was one of the darkest moments of the game for me! :( The first D:OS was super silly at parts but it was not such depressing...
Comment: My son and husband play Fallout! And now my daughter is playing Fallout 76 with them. I've heard them say similar things about the game not really being like the original Fallout(s). Thank you so much for the awesome Nuka Cola ATC and the extras :)
Response: Aaaawwww... It is so amazing that you have a gamer family! I think Fallout 76 can be a hugh fun when you can play it with friends or friendly unknown gamers. But for now I will stick to the older games. And to Divinity: Original Sins 2! XD Thank you for the rating and your comment!
Comment: Love the circles you made! Like you, I'm totally going to be making more of them!
Thank you for the other goodies as well! The little "gnomey" fire fighter made me smile 😃.
Response: Thank you! This swap was such an eye-opener for me! Now I know exactly what to do with paper scraps... :D The gnomey fire fighter is called "Löschzwerg", what can be translated as "extinguish-dwarf". XD It`s from a beer mixed with some sort of soda. Suepr fresh and delicious!
Comment: I have your story in hand! The 5 and heart are for its presentation alone - you've gone above and beyond! I will read the story tonight when I'm alone and in the dark!!! :) Thank you so much!!!
Response: Have lots of fun with it! I hope your blood runs cold! A little bit... :D Thank you so much for your rating!
Comment: Wow wow wow, what a super toll great beautiful pocket letter. I feel so lucky with you as my swap partner. Also many thanks for the empty sleeve, so nice of you to put one in the lovely decorated envelope. I totally don't mind the extra's, I won't tell anyone ໒(⇀‿↼)७
I would give you 10 💚 per pocket if I could and 10 extra to make 100 ❤💙💚💛💜💖❤💙💚💛💜❤💙💚💛💜💖❤💙💚💛💜
Response: Yeah! Thank you so much! I am so happy that you like the PL! When I started on it, I was afraid it would look like a bunch of trash when it is finished... But I really liked the result and was hoping that you would as well. :D Thanks a bunch for your amazing comment!!!
Comment: Your booklet is so well done and creative! I love all the little hidden pockets and the goodies you sent are amazing. I look forward to using everything, and especially love the little paper feathers (so cute!) and the birds/nest cling stamps are lovely. The colors you used, composition, and little details are so perfect. Thank you for such a beautiful swap! P.S. I also love the packaging and very carefully have saved the cute tissue paper
Response: I worked on it soooo long because I had new ideas every day! :D Thanks for this swap - I totally got lost in the details. :D And thank you for your rating!
Comment: Wow...just WOW! Your ATC is awesome - very nicely done. I love the color pallette, texture, and layers. And I adored the story you shared about Angry Ghandi, LOL! My son and husband played the game but never mentioned Ghandi. How hilarious! And thank you for all the itty bitty fabulousness you included :)
Response: LOL XD Fantastic! I am happy that you like it and that I was able to tell you something new about an old game. :) Thanks for the rating!!!
Comment: Vielen Dank für die coole Karte zum B! Das Spiel klingt genial. Das hätte ich sicher auch gern gespielt. 🙂 Vielen Dank auch für die schönen Postkarten. 🙂 Tut mir sehr leid, dass du schon die Hoffnung aufgegeben hättest, weil bei mir leider die Post oft nur so selten kommt... :(
Response: Schön, dass sie Dir gefällt. :) Ich habe das Spiel sogar letzte Woche mal wieder gezockt! Ich musste zu einer mehrtägigen Schulung und habe in einer Art Studentenwohnheim übernachtet. Die Abende habe ich mir mit Baldur`s Gate vertrieben. :) Mein liebstes Partymitglied ist Minsc. Er ist ein glatzköpfiger, barbarischer Kämpfer und er hat... einen Hamster. Boo. Minsc glaubt, es sei ein Miniatur-Riesen-Hamster, aber es ist wohl eher ein ganz gewöhnlicher Wühler. Schön ist Minscs Kampfschrei, sobald ein Feind in Sicht kommt und wir einen Angriff starten: "Go for the eyes, Boo! FOR THE EYES!!!" XD
Comment: This arrived yesterday and I am still blown away! Thank you so much! I love it all! Those little watercolour cubes a so sweet. We have that brand here but it is rather pricy, and hard to come across, so I haven't had a chance to try them yet, thank you for sharing! I am amazed the little porcelain (?) stars survived the trip, only the 2 largest had cracked but I was able to repair them and they will be wonderful! I have a project to make little crescent moons with a friend and they will be perfect accents for them! They are the cutest! Romy, you spoiled me. I feel like I didn't send enough for this exchange. I continue to keep an eye out for cute stencils for your little one. ;)
Thank you so much. Mail from you always brightens my day/week and I always appreciate it. And your little watercolour practise pieces are wonderful. I think I shall make a small journal to practise watercolour in. Thank you for the inspiration!
Response: Narf.... I knew it! I should have wrapped the stars better. I am sorry that they were damaged but luckily you were able to fix them! They are handmade of clay. In a tiny pottery in the region where I grew up. :) The watercolors are ridiculous pricy here, too! But I found them for such a good price, I just had to try them. Now that I found my favourit watercolors I woun`t use them anymore and thought you could practice with them. :) I like their quality. The idea with the journal is fantastic! perhaps I should try that as well... Nothing is better than making others happy. Mission complete! :D Looking forward to swap with you again!
Comment: Thanks for your parcel :) I really liked the gifts, but you forgot to mention the name of the swap, so I really needed to do a research from which swap it came from
Response: Thank you for the 5 and the heart! :) And sorry that I did not mention the swap name. I am always only in a very few swaps and can keep track of every one of them. I just forget that other swapers are way more active then I am... XD But I am glad you like the swap and I hope you can use some of the content.
Comment: I love the ATC you made, such a great work ^^ I saw it on Instagram earlier, thought it was awesome and I'm happy to notice it looks even better live ;) I also appreciate the little letter you wrote and all the extras, thank you so much!
Response: Some days after I sent it, I realized that you are one of my few followers and I was SO sorry that I gave you this giant spoiler.... :( Sorry! I will be a bit more careful with the timing I post images there. But I am happy that you like this small ATC. :) Although it did not look exactly how I expected it, I was quiet happy with this tiny watercolor painting. :) Thank you for your rating and the nice comment...!
Comment: Wish I could give you more than 1 heart. The watercolor on the ornaments and the background is great. Love the dimension. The book is amazing. I am really a huge fan of the sscrap samplers. I would like to know about the latex binding. (I am not allergic) Thanks too for the german texts and the book page with the illustration, how cute!!!!
Response: Yeah! :D Thank you for the rating and the awesome comment! I am completely into watercolors right now - I am not really good but even tiny exercises are able to fully relax me and that is worth so much... The scrap samplers are so easy to make but I like them as small gifts for other crafters and already made a bunch. :D I will send you a message about the binding. :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful swap!! The envelope is sooooo awesome!!!! I will keep it! I just love how creative it is and so much fun! Thank you for the good wishes - I hope you enjoyed the holiday and were able to be in a festive mood all month long!! Happy New Year to you!!!! XOXO
Response: Aaaawww... Thank you so much! :) My holidays were fantastic this year! All quiet, peaceful and cozy - just how I love it... :D Happy New Year!!!
Comment: Danke dir für die schöne Weihnachtskarte. Und sogar mit Weihnachtsbriefmarke. Wollte Samstag welche holen, aber die standen bei der Post Schlange bis raus auf die Straße und da hatte ich keine Lust, mich anzustellen.
Response: Sehr gerne! :) Unsere Postfiliale hat nicht mal besondere Briefmarken... Ich bestelle sie mir gerne online (versandkostenfrei). :D Frohes Fest!
Comment: Thank you so much for the shaker ornament!! I now want to try to make one like this myself. How did you get the thickness (sides)?
Response: woahr... O_O This needed only two days to arrive! I am glad you like the ornament. I couldn`t stop making them and now I have a couple for our tree... :D I used some layers of rubber foam (I hope this is the right translation) - the colorful stuff small kids use for crafting. The clear foil is some old packaging. Befor you glue something on the plastic, try some different glues. I realized that some of my best glues did absolutely not stick to the plastic. And to pevent the glitter to fall out, I put some Glossy Accents around the outside edges. I would love to see the ornaments you make...! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful box to open, and the awesomely wrapped gifts! I'm saving them for advent calendar gifts, but already I'm so so happy, due to the wrapping with cat themed fabric <3
Response: I was hoping you could use the wrapping for your quilt! :D
Comment: Your journal is fabulous! I have really enjoyed looking at all the pages! Thank you!
Also, randomness, but the bandaids you tucked in for magpie-ness, seem to be the perfect size for my tiny fingers! I have to cut the ends off of regular sized bandaids.
Response: Thank you!!! I like doing those magpie journals but this one was a challenge because of the size! 100 pages and I wanted to make every page look different... When I worked on it with my son, we had soooo much fun because he was absolutely free in what he glues in the journal, which stamps he use and what colour of paint. I think we will do this again. :) Cool that the bandaids fit your fingers so well! Now I wish I would have some more of them... Thank you for your rating me with a heart!!! :)
Comment: Thank you for the cool seahorse ATC and other goodies. The seahorse you used is my favorite variety. (We saw some of them at Scripps Institute in California. They look look Dr. Seuss-ish to me.)
Response: I like animals in disguise! :D So glad you like it... Thank you for your rating!
Comment: Wow, you have quite a talent! I love the pretty little zippered bag; you sew so neatly! I also love all the goodies you stuffed it with♥ especially the things made with vintage book pages. You've given me inspiration for some cards I want to make. Thank you so much♥♥♥
Response: Thank you.... :) I realized so many small mistakes I made with this small after project. But I am so happy that I slowly find back to sewing again. Thanks for hosting this swap and your rating!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome ATCs Romy! I especially love the one you painted, so cool/ creepy looking! And thanks for the extra nautical stuffs, my fave of course! <3 OH and your note had me cracking up hahaha! Do you remember Bozo the clown?? That was one of my favorite shows to watch as a kid.
Response: O_O I did NOT know about Bozo! Thanks for the nightmares...! Well... at least I have a new idea for your next nightmare ATC swap... XD
Comment: Amazing swap! I enjoyed flipping through this journal and seeing so many things I'd never seen before. I'll definitely try the coffee sample and the hair repair stuff! I saw a caramel apple tea wapper, I bet that tasted amazing. :) I also saw that Papa Roach will be at one of the music festivals. I've seen them in concert before (in 2009) and they are really great at a live show. I also really loved how you did some art on each page too. Thank you for a great swap!
Response: Oh, what an amazing rating! Thank you so much!!! I absolutely enjoyed making this journal and am super relieved that you like my ideas... :D ♥♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: I absolutely loved the surfing dog tag for this. Hundestage! What a brilliant interpretation and, as I mentioned in my last rating, this package was just overall phenomenal. I love that you're able to try new things in this group and I wish I could give a thousand more hearts. xoxo
Response: Fantastic! Thank you so much! It is so easy for me to put together some happy mail for you. :D Strange....
Comment: Romy - You have outdone yourself with this swap. I absolutely love the tag (and the surfing dog tag too!), and the extra ATC showing your technique for painting water is amazing. Also, the letter you enclosed explaining it all, and the origami animals - truly this was a beautiful and inspiring parcel. Thank you so much. I wish I could give you a thousand hearts for this. xoxo
Response: Aaaawwww.... Thank you.... :) I found my way to make the tags now and really enjoyed making them! I even try out new things with every tag. Thanks for hosting this series! :D
Comment: This is really a work of art - thank you! You are so creative. I am going to take this as a lesson for future flipbooks. I loved it, especially that you found a picture of an anglerfish! I just knitted one for my amigurumi swap last month!
Response: Thank you! :) A anglerfish amigurumi sounds awesome! I would love to see him! :D
Comment: I was just tickled to find your colourful package in the mail today! I really like the folder booklet you created...the colours were great as were all the little touches you had on each pocket. I had to tell you that your package made it's way all the way to me in Canada WITHOUT ANY POSTAGE and the post office just put it in my box like it was any other mail....no postage due! I am sure you put postage on there but somewhere along its journey it came off. I thought it was funny :)
Response: I had a feeling that nothing could stick on the duckt tape... :D It is so sad that you had no chance to see the newest special stamp about the "German bread culture"! XD Anyway... I am absolutely happy that you like what I made for you (It was so much fun that I already made some more of those books for ATC-storing!) and I am looking forward to more fun youtube-craft-swaps! Thanks for hosting this and thank you for rating me with a heart!!!
Comment: Spoiled me! Generously sent more than 10 embellishments, as well as die-cuts, book pages & 2 keys - I did not expect that. I'll use them on cards mostly, but also on ATCs. Thanks very much.
Response: Thank you for the rating, your email and the dogh-recipe! It is great to see that you know it - my son loves to make it and play with the colorful stuff... :D I use to stuff my envelopes until they reach the weight and size limit. I just HAD TO put some more things in the envelope, that I thought you could use for some craft projects. I am more than happy when I could treat you... :) I can`t wait to see your embellishments! You are absolutely right: the creations of others are often a fantastic inspiration!
Comment: Romy, I have always loved what you sent but this is special.... The beautiful apron, the lovely vintage roses, all the goodies you included, gifts... Everything! Package has been smashed as a punching ball and taking around for weeks but it got finally to my hands and everything is inside and Clean!!! Thank you so much for your love and friendship! I hope you get mine soon and you like what I sent!♥♥
Response: You are so sweet.... I have to thank YOU! Because you made me sew again... :D It was great to make this apron for you and stuff the mail as much as possible. I`m sorry that it took so long but at least you got it and nothing was damaged! I`m looking forward to swap with you again soon... Thank you for your rating and the lovely comment! :)
Comment: If I could give you a hundred ⭐️🌟💫⭐️🌟 I would. I loved everything you sent and I believe you sent more than you had to. I loved reading your note too. 😉😉 this was a great swap, thank you so very much.
Response: hahahah.... :D This swap was so much fun! It also had something of a confession... O_O Thanks for your rating and the heart!
Comment: Oh boy this one really took a while to reach me, but it was one of the few items I was still expecting and my mail has been more normal lately. Nonetheless, this was really worth the wait, it's beautiful!! Thanks for sending me spekulatius tea, I love it!! These cookies, believe ir or not, are sold here in Chile! The biggest supermarket chain here is owned by a German old guy, so they bring tons of international products, especially those from Germany and I love it. I'm crazy about Katjes and their veggie gummies and I always buy the spekulatius spice for cookies and smoohies hehe, I still haven't tried making spekulatius because I need a cute mold, but I'll make sure to get one for next Christmas. I've also bought springerle, but of course the homemade version must be way better. My favorite Christmas cookies are vanillekipferl actually, I bake them every Christmas because a friend shared her recipe with me and I've been obsessed with them ever since. If you ever want to swap cookie recipes, just let me know, I'd be more than happy to! Once again, thanks for such a cute pocket letter, it's beautiful and the goodies are wonderful too, and I really enjoyed your letter, hope you had a fun Christmas :)
Response: Every week I checked the info on your profile to see if I should send you a message. I was so sure, this little Pocket Letter got lost... I already started to work on a second one! :D I sent out the spekulatius-tea with some swaps and I have not expected to get that much positive feedback about it! Even here in Germany spekulatius is not everyone`s cup of tea (literaly!) but it seems our cookies are well known and liked around the world... :) I would LOVE to do a receipe swap! I have some from my grandma in mind.... Thank you so much for the rating and your wonderful comment!
Comment: I have no words for how incredible this flipbook is. It put mine to shame - and it is hand's down the best flipbook I have ever received. I cannot thank you enough or give you enough hearts for this! xoxo
Response: Mission accomplished! (I would love to post a meme here... :D ) Thank you for the rating and the heart! I hoped you would like it - I wanted to send you something that a wonderful person like you deserves... :)
Comment: Romy - I cannot believe the amazing parcel that came in the post today. I LOVE your tag. Your take on the theme was so perfect, and the composition is wonderful. Thank you so much for such a lovely swap! xoxo
Response: Thank you! Thanks for this rating and your wonderful message. That means a lot to me! You are awesome! :)
Comment: Romy I ADORE how you made this one. You are so talented! I also love the back with the cat playing with the ball of yarn and the funny quote. So cuteee! I especially love the cat washi you sent along. I've never seen these ones before! The cat putting it's hands in the tissue box killed me! So adorable. And the one that's sitting in the box! Gahahah! Omg i love it so much. Thank you for all the love and beautiful things you send me for our swaps I can't wait to try the tea!
Response: Gnihihihihi..... :D I could make cat PLs all day long! Yeah, the washi is awesome! This tape was a gift from the wonderful @mgallardo68 - I LOVE this tape!!! Thank you again for the ratings, the wonderful comments and the fantastic swap experience!
Comment: You said in your letter that this one was the hardest but omg I just love how you made it. Is the Rocket Raccoon? :) Also the paper you used to make batman's ears is super cool. I love how it reflects in the light. The little paper deers you sent along are just so adorable. And I love the washi! All of them are beautiful but I must say that I can't wait to use the mushroom one! Hahah. Tausend Dank. <3
Response: Bitte sehr! :D I didn`t even think of Rocket Raccoon!!! I just picked this little guy because he looks so adorable! :D The Batman-paper was from a Christmas card. I never throw things away - you never know when you could use it.... Thank you for swapping with me!
Comment: EEEEP! I adore this so much. You really are so talented and I love how you made the "?" block from Mario. Also, the dishonored 2 backing is soooooo cool. It really makes the whole swap feel super epic! You also really suffed the pockets and I can't wait to use the goodies you sent me! :D Thank you Romy. <3
Response: I had thousand ideas for this PL! And because of my video-game-magazin-subscription I have lots of material... The Dishonored back is from an add. I liked that picture. Very stylish. :D I am SO happy that you like what I sent you. Thank you so much for the rating comment!
Comment: Romy, what a beautiful creation you sent to me! I love the images you chose for your ATCs and the items you tucked in with each pocket. The little shells and anchor that you used to trim the edge are so cute! I thought the string that you used on some of the pockets was great - like the rope used on boats! And using trivia on vellum for the back of the pockets was a wonderful idea! Thank you also for the wonderful letter - I think you are a mermaid at heart as you truly love the water! Even your envelope was fun: from the variety of colorful stamps and your lovely penmanship on the address to the hand-drawn cat and cat washi tape decorating the back, this was such fun to receive! Thank you for all the care and creativity that you put into it!
Response: Aaaaaawwww..... Thank you so, so much for your lovely comment! It is great so see that you appreciate the crafting work of others so much! :) I like to use random facts and informations on the backs of my PLs. Usually I insert some fun facts about Germany but it was fun to search for some nautical facts for this swap. I never thought of being a mermaid. But you must be right... I could jump right into the water now! :D Thank you for your rating and the heart!
Comment: Hello I received the PL cards. Thanks. Just to let you know the envie was all torn up but the post office staff repackaged it. I think I got everything you meant to sent. Lovely cards, thanks!
Response: O_O What a shock! I hope no card is missing! :( Have fun using them and thanks for the rating! :)
Comment: I love the washi samples and I love your washi/confetti theme and the little bunting/banner is SOOO cute! I saw your note on the envie moistening glue, I'm intrigued! And the cotton colors are adorable. I will have to find a suitable knitting project... It's a great amount for a dishcloth, but the colors are too pretty for that!
Response: Thank you so much!!! :) The colors were the reason why I had to buy them! Well... and the fact that they are so tiny and cute... :D I`m glad you like everything. Happy knitting!!!
Comment: Oh I LOVE these ATCs! Thank you, I wish I had extra hearts to give! Each one is so interesting, and they are also color-coordinated even though they’re about totally different topics. Super impressive. You did an outstanding job matching up the perspectives of the cut paper on the dot ATC (plus you introduced me to the word decuman). I also love the cat cupcake ATC; it’s just super cute! I like the layers and the embellishments on the craft ATC, and my husband who is Korean-American is curious about the origins of the Korean text. It might be interesting to include other sewing imagery to add to the theme, like dotted cutting lines or lines like seams. Maybe on the back? My favorite is probably the Shaun of the Dead one, I love your drawing style! Very cool idea to focus on his shirt; it’s instantly recognizable. Oh, and a big thank you for the cool lenticular stickers! They are super cool. Let’s do a sewing swap (once my sewing machine is fixed)?
Response: YEAH!!!! I am so happy that you like the ATCs! I always thought, they would be made easily (how much time would one need to decorate such a little piece of cardbord...) but... phew... it was so hard! So many ideas. So less space... The Korean text is from a tourist information brochure from the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. Or was it the Nordic Museum...? I just like the characters and had to take them with me! I would LOVE to do a sewing swap! I really want to sew more again - just let me know when your machine is working again. :) Thanks a lot for your ideas, for doing this fun swap with me and for the lovely rating comment!!!
Wow the stuff you send is SO amazing!! You're so great at making flip books!!! The owls are so cute and all the goodies you sent!! Thank you so so much!!!
Imagine having an owl as a pet, that would be so cool!! I'd love to do another swap with you! Let me know when you have time to swap again!
Response: I don`t have lots of owl-stuff, so I had to search for every little piece for this flip book... :D I am so glad that you like it. I had lots of fun making it! I will message you for another swap when I have more time - and when my flu is gone... :D Thanks a lot for your rating!!!
All I can say is wow!!!! Everything was so brilliant! The flip book you made me is absolutely gorgeous! SO many goodies!! I love the doilies and the van Gogh postcards! Thank you so much for an amazing swap!!!!!
Response: I`m happy you like what I made for you! :) The "sceleton" of this flipbook was done very fast but I had a lack of ideas for the decoration and fillings. It took me about 2 weeks to get started with its decoration but then it worked out very well. Thank you for your lovely comment and the rating with a heart!
Comment: What a beautiful tag, Romy! I love all of the dimensional elements you included and also the little bells. Your drawing skills are very good! I also love the fact that it includes the work of three generations - what fun. :)
Response: Thank you very much for your nice comment! I put so much effort into this little project and am absolutely happy, you like it! :) And thanks for mentoning the bird drawing. This was the biggest challenge! :D
Comment: Liebe Romy,
Vielen dank fÃ¼r den tollen mini Pocket Letter. Ich liebe das FÃ¼chse Thema und alle Goodies die du mir eingepackt hast.
Response: Ganz lieben Dank! :) Ich bin immer froh wenn ich die kleinen, niedlichen FÃ¼chse fÃ¼r ein Projekt verwenden kann - hat richtig SpaÃŸ gemacht! Vielen Dank fÃ¼r die Bewertung und Deinen netten Kommentar!
Comment: Oh my gosh, Romy. I cannot thank you enough for this package. I absolutely loved sharing these 31 days with you - the letter, the scarf...everything! I wish I could give you a thousand more hearts. Thank you so, so much! xoxo
Response: Thank YOU for this swap! It is such a great idea and I hope you will host something similar during summer... :) Thanks so much for your lovely comment. :D
Comment: Thank you so much for your amazing pocket letter and the flip book also! I loved everything about it, was so much fun discovering it all ðŸ˜Š and thank you for hosting a private swap so I could get some practice with pocket letters, you're definitely a good example!
Response: Aaaawwww.... Thanks for your nice comment! I so appreciate that you liked my mail and you can get some inspiration from it.
Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Hi, Romy, creative minds must think alike! =) My color choices for my partner were the same as yours. Thank you for the lovely mini pocket letter and the goodies! Everything is much appreciated.
Response: Ha! Great! :D I would love to see your version of this color combination!
Thank you so much for your rating and the heart!!!
Comment: Love the post cards you made for me and the note you included and extras! Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Halloween party this year!
Response: You are welcome! :)
We had a really nice little party this year. And my son was so excited about the kids that were ringing the door bell... I think he will go trick`r-treating next year as well! :D
Comment: Thank You! Your handmade card is gorgeous! I really liked the envelope, too. I'm so glad it made it through the mail. I've been having some bad luck with that lately. I will definitely be writing you a note back, it just might take a while. Happy Halloween!
Response: I can`t wait to read your answer! :D
Thank you for the nice comment and your rating. I am always afraid how my mail will arrive.... :D
Comment: Awww I loved learning about your beloved Miez. You will never stop missing her I'm afraid, but you were so fortunate to have shared her life - and here she is making my day! I love the postcards! Thank you so much :-)
Response: * sniff * Thanks a bunch! It was nice to write about her - I have so much wonderful memories about Miez. :) Thank you for your lovely comment. That means much to me! â¤
Comment: Oh my gosh thank you sooooo much for the amazing pocket letter!! This is one of the best ones I have ever gotten you are soooo creative!!! I also love all the goodies too! I would give you more hearts if I could! â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤
Response: I am so, SO happy to hear that - especially from you! I love your Pocket Letters and really hoped, you would like mine, too... :D
Thank you so much for the rating and the lovely comment!!!
Comment: Hi Romy, thanks for the haunting experiences. It's so scary! Your family never thought of moving?
Response: Thanks for the rating! No! They had their business in this house, so we had to stay there. And besides those "evil things" it was almost funny in some moments! For example when me and my parents were in the living room, eating or watching TV together and the door suddenly opened, one of us was saying in the door`s direction "You could even close the door when you are coming in!". This became a running gag in my family. :D
Comment: I think that if someone was to send me discworld washi I would probably die. The ones you picked to match my word were lovely. I think the jars (err, "containers") are one of my favorites now :) Thank you!
Response: Oh. I am glad I couldn`t find some Discworld washi, than! O_O :D
Thank you so much for your rating and the heart!
Comment: I loved it! I love the monsters! Thank you!
Response: Great you love the monsters! :D
I had so much fun putting them in the monster-party flip book... I hope the velcro closing still works. It was the first time I gave it a try and I used my normal sewing stuff (not special ones for paper crafting).
Thank you for the 5 and the heart!
Comment: I was really impressed by your flipbook... your first and it is so well made with the taping and sewing :D! I enjoyed flipping through it, looking at your collages and the goodies! Thank you so much for your lovely mail and sending great Halloween greetings my way!
Response: I had so much fun making this album (although I have not much halloween stuff). I am so happy, you like it! :)
Thanks for your comment, the rating and the heart!!!
Comment: Thanks for the schmetterlinge pocket letter. Our parade is every second Sunday in September, this year on the 10th. You really should come and see it some time! And while you are here you should go to De efteling as well! About a 40 minute drive from here.(I'm so sorry, I forgot to mark the 5... by the way, the parade was yesterday and we won 4th place)
Response: Congratulations!!! You had a lot to do with the arrangements of the parade. No worries about the rating. :)
Comment: What a gorgeous pocket letter Romy! I love the adorable animals you chose (the fox with glasses is SO cute!!!). It's a very lovely addition to my PL collection! Thank you as well for the wide variety of goodies, they are a welcome addition to my stash. I especially love the one syou handmade, they're awesome!
I'm tickled you love Discworld too!! Death is one of my faves, along with Death of Rats, *SQUEAK* hehe. It's hard to pick just one favourite character though....Tiffany, Granny, Nanny, the Nac Mac Feegle...I have so many! :) I just finished reading the Shepherds Crown. It was so bittersweet to finish reading the series. 3 I am starting over though, I could read the series over and over.
Response: Thank you so much for your comment!
Sir Terry did an awesome job by creating great characters. Even the not so nice ones (like Vetinari) are real cool... :D
Comment: Thank you for all the cute tapes. :) Loved your envelope as well. :)
Did you enjoy the book, as well?
Response: Thanks for the rating! :)
Well... It was not really fun to read this book but not because it was bad written! After I finished it, I thought a lot about the whole story and every single event that was a nail in Hannah`s coffin. The most important question for me was, what would I do if I was in Mr. Porter`s stead.
It was no light fare but I am happy to have read it! Thank you for this hint! :D
Comment: thank you for a very nice card, i might have something very similar in my collection from our country i will look it up and see , it would be very interesting to see one from Germany what you had sent me:)
Response: I loved this super kitschy postcard and I am happy it made it to you!
Thank you for your nice comment and rating me with a heart!
Comment: Your chunk o cardboard is so gorgeous! I love all the pastel colors & the vintage B&W baker at the top. I can't eat macaroons because of almond flour but I love photographs of them - a perfectly lovely dessert! Merci Beaucoup!!
Response: I kept this cardboard back for a while because it looks so pretty. I am so happy that the card is after your fancy! :D
Thank you so much for the comment, the rating and the heart!
Comment: I must say, people like you are the whole reason I joined swapbot. What an amazing soul you are, thank you so much for the smile you put on my face with this swap! (you proved me right when I say everybody can draw, your drawing was so cute!). I will definitely write back soon. Thank you again!!
Response: Oh wow... Thank you so much for your motivating comment! This is the reason why I do swaps! Not the ratings and comments, but to bring a smile on someone`s face... :)
I am surprised you like the drawing! XD The "fox" on the sketch should have been a cat....
I`m looking forward for a letter from you! And thanks again for this comment, the rating and the heart!
Comment: Hello Romy, Well I SO love what you have sent! Every single thing I don't have! Or have never seen before. I will have fun using all of it and thank you for your sweet note too! Have a wonderful day! Thanks again for an awesome swap! <3
Response: Yeah! I`m glad you received everything and you like it! :)
Thank you so much for rating me with a heart!
Comment: Thanks so much, Romy.
Your package brought joy to my day.â™¥ï¸
The envies are wonderful and made with care.
The presentation was special, too.
(Thanks also for the profile related extras!)
Response: Thank you for your nice comment and rating me with a heart!!!
I am so glad you like what I made for you... :)
Comment: Good ones! I like the first one... Is that an excuse to eat junk food then? ;)
Response: Well... It said "something" so I would think junk food is something. And inspirobot is an intelligence. So... I think you are right! It IS an excuse! :D
Thank you for the rating with a heart!
Comment: Romy, thank you so much for the fantastic pocket letter! I absolutely adore it, and the goodies you've included are perfect for me! â™¥ I really, really appreciate you taking the time to trade with me. You've given me lots of ideas to play with in the future as well - plenty of inspiration for my new-to-pocket-letters self. (And please tell your little guy that the cat was a nice touch! ;) )
Response: I`m glad you liked it and it was some inspiration for you. At least this was the reason why I wanted to swap a PL with you - to give you an idea of what it could look like. :)
I will tell my son that his kitty-idea was a good one!
Thank you so much for your comment and the heart!!!
Comment: WOW so beautiful, I love the exotic animals you chose for your pocket letter. The little extras are very awesome and the lesson on the back was PERFECT extra hearts deserved. We will definitely be adding the material square to our around the world Quilt (somehow) ... THANK YOU ++++
Response: Thanks for rating the PL with a heart!
I was hoping you could use the facts on the back for your kids somehow... :D
And I would love to see your Quilt when it is done!
Comment: I love the cards you sent! :) And it's funny, the first time I signed up for one of these swaps, I thought "no problem" - but oh my good ness! haha :)
And the mail handling managed to leave a deer imprint on the 'shine' card so perfectly I at first thought you made it that way!
These are great. Thank you so much :)
Response: Ah! So this swap is some kind of newbie-trap! :D Looks super easy but if you try it... WOW!
And the imprint shows me that I have to learn even more. I am ready for a next round. Soon. I think... :)
Thank you so much for the amusing comment and the heart!
Comment: Your photos are lovely! Emmy looks sweet - I have trouble getting photos of my cats' faces, both the cuddly cat and the two who are not. The roses and woods look beautiful, and the strawberries are awesome! The castle is neat - I haven't been in Germany since I was 8, but I remember my parents driving by at least a couple of great castles. Don't be embarrassed about your nice crafting area - it looks lived in! And I love the playground. Nice to combine it with an adult fit trail, so you can walk or run and still be close to your kids! Thanks so much for sharing!
