Response: 💕💕💕💕I'm hoping you will be able to open sooner rather than later!!!!! I included southern warmth and love to help make the transition south of the Mason Dixon! Much love and happiness in your next chapter! 💕
Comment: I am so sorry that I didn't rate you. I thought I had, but doing a bit of housekeeping and realized that I hadn't. You are too sweet. I had a terrific week and already got plans for some of the material. Coffee was delicious! I loved the jokes and Mason had to take them to school for his teacher to read. You definitely blessed me! I can't thank you enough. There aren't enough hearts! God Bless you.
Response: Mason shared the jokes! YEAH!!!! That is better than a million ♥♥♥♥ You must let me know what you make ;~)
Comment: Happy Easter, my friend. Thank you for a wonderfully playful Easter basket. I did the printables this morning, loved the M&M and jelly bean messages. I'm so glad your note said they were rabbit CRAYONS. Never would have guessed. :) Wishing you joyful memories of your Mom today.
Comment: Marie!!! What a fabulous swap!! THe outside of the mailing box is SO amazing!!!! The box alone would have been plenty!! I love the Easter basket and I know I am in for a huge treat!! As always!!!! Thank you! You are so creative and fill everything so much love!! xoxoxoxo
Comment: I loved coming home to a special package-it was in the 60's today but it is windy and overcast. Tomorrow with be in the 40's so it will brighten my day to open packages from the Christmas train! The train and bear ornaments are lovely!
Response: I am so glad you like them. Merry Christmas!
Comment: I received my lovely box today. It was fun to open my first package and read the messages! It is fall like now with a high of 70 and breezy after a week of 90 plus. This is good baking weather.
Response: Oh good! The week should give you lots of baking ideas!
Comment: Your box was waiting for me when I arrived home. Wow! The outside is so pretty that I had a hard time opening it and the handkerchiefs are beautiful!!!! What a creative way to use them for "envies!" I may have to steal your idea. :) I haven't opened any yet, but I think I'll start later today. Thank you so much! Update: 9/17/17 - I have been taking my time opening my lovely handkerchiefs and still have 3 more left to open. Wow! I can't believe how creative the bookmarks you made are!!! What a fantastic job you did. Thank you for all the time and thought you put into knitting each one! My favorites thus far are the cat, owl and butterfly. I am in awe!
Response: Yeah! I am so glad you like them! My favorite was the butterfly :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely week of envies! I love the tea and the tea facts each day, and all the awesome washi tape! You are so clever and creative and always go out of your way to make me feel special. Thanks!
Comment: What a great PC - I love these!! My son also got Highlights magazine when he was a boy and loved the 'seek and find' games. As for finding the checklist items on the PC, I did find them all including the 2 people in space helmets - one was on the ground level and the other was on the first tier of the middle balcony. Thanks again for the great PC and hope to see you again in future swaps ~~
Comment: It''s so funny because I had the same issue with unacceptable PCs for this swap :-) Thanks for the animal PCs you sent. . . I love the donkey and especially this one because I love the white and blue of the buildings. Thanks again for the great PCs and have a wonderful week ~~
Comment: Thank you, love the recipe cards. I have read through the entire Bible twice now. Currently I am doing a study of Romans and I love to read Proverbs. I also follow along with the yearly Torah portions. It is comforting to know that so many Messianic Christians and Jews are reading the same scriptures at the same time.
Response: I am so glad you liked the swap! Thank you for the ðŸ’–
Comment: Thank you for the re-send! I enjoyed reading your note and I just love the items! The jelly sounds really good! I haven't seen any dandelions in our yard (then again our grass gets treated), but if I ever come across any I will have to give your recipe a try. :)
Response: Lemony honey! That is how it tastes. Wonderful!
Comment: Wow!!! Thank you for all the fantastic items! I love the envelope you made and the bookmarks are beautiful! Did you make them yourself? The postcards are great and I'll be keeping them as I like them too much to share. :) The envelope and card will be put to good use and I would love to read through Psalms, Proverbs and Song of Solomon with you. I actually have re-read Psalms quite a few times, usually every day I read one chapter and when I'm done I start over again. Have you started the reading plan already? I will start tomorrow and look forward to keeping each other up to date on our progress. Thank you for all the thought you put into making this swap such a treat to receive! Have a great week.
Response: :~) I bought a book "thong" several years ago and have been making them ever since. The teapot is my first *double* book mark. I thought it would work well for the Bible as you often need more than one place keeper at a time!
Comment: Oh my goodness!! I opened up my very first envie and it was the Sand Dollar!! Oh I love it!! Sand Dollars have always had a very special place in my heart, so this was just the perfect place to start! I know I am in for an AWESOME week!!! Thank you so much!! xxooxxoo
Response: I ordered them especially for the swap :~) Real ones are so delicate and are easily broken, so when I saw some made from seaglass I had to get them. I was afraid the charms would not make it in time... Hope you like the rest as well as the first! â™¥
Comment: Thanks for the fun postcard! It's my first one ever that I have received from Mexico. :) I have thought snorkeling would be fun and I myself would like to try it some day. I hope you'll get the chance to try it some day too! Have a great day and thanks for joining my swap!
Response: It was a fun swap! Snorkeling? We really should! I look forward to hearing about your experience and I'll do the same!
Comment: What a great PC for this swap. . . to see an animal doing its own thing in nature is truly awesome and this little one is certainly doing its own thing! Thank you so much for a perfect PC for a nature topic ~~
Comment: Love the postcards! Good imagination! Cannon is artillery, and home made root beer sounds delish! The roast sounds good! Im sure everything will work itself out on the other subject. Thank you!!!! Thanks for joining the swaps:)
Response: Gramma, used Zataran's root beer extract. Root beer always reminds me of herâ™¥
Comment: Thanks for the awesome postcard ðŸ˜‹ A skyline always looks cooler reflected on water. My friends flew up to New York for a concert last weekend and I'm super jealous. Have a great day, Nathan
Response: Today I a similar PC, such beauty!
If they had been really good friends they would have brought you with ;~)
Comment: I LOVE the items (I was especially excited when I saw the postage stamps) and enjoyed your note. I had not heard of that song before, but now I'm going to look it up so I listen to it. Thank you so much!!!
Comment: I feel like I hit the jackpot with the PCs you sent for this swap - they are all so pretty. . .and the Dutch Sticky Buns PC makes my mouth water! Thanks so much and hope to see you in future swaps ~~
Comment: Marie, thank you so much ! It had to be hard for you to have me again so soon, but I know I am in for a great week. The daily bags are adorable,and the beet magnet is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. It went straight up on my fridge. My favorite part of your swaps are the little letters and stories you include, I am excited to read those. Thank you for everything my mail friend!!!
Response: I'm so glad you finally found a beet you like!!!!!!! ;~)
Comment: Thanks for the great Ohio PC. I've been to Ohio a couple times years ago but I understand what you mean. I have a lot of cardinals here in Alexandria and they always bring a smile to my face. I have a wooded area behind my townhouse as well as a lovely Japanese Maple in my front yard and the cardinals love to flitter around. Thanks again for the great Ohio PC and hope to see you in future swaps ~~
Response: Thank you for the â¤. Your view makes me envious!
Comment: Marie, thank you so much for a wonderful swap! I loved it the first moment I saw it in your happy colorful handmade envelope. :) I will enjoy using the items! The notecard is beautiful, love the cute little envelope die-cut, the recipe looks good and I have a friend who loves owls so the next time I send her a letter I'll be using your stickers for her. Thanks for also enclosing a note and what an interesting owl story. :) I would LOVE to see an owl some day, though now that I live in the suburbs I doubt this will happen any time soon. I really appreciate all the thought and generosity you put into this swap!!!
Response: It is always a pleasure sending to you! Thank you for the thoughtful comment and the â™¥
Comment: Hi Marie! What an awesome pc - that moose is huge! If the first pc finds its way here, I will let you know, I know there is tons of mail so I should not be surprised when things go missing but I always am - sigh! Thanks for resending! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: The truly amazing thing is that most mail does make it where it is supposed to go! â™¥
Comment: Wow!Day one and already I am amazed! I LOVE the Alice teabox that you decorated...and how fun, a tea tasting for the boys..that is so creative! I adore the tags you cut out and the cute way you packaged it. I can tell I am in for a great week. Thank you for all of your hard work!
Response: I Enjoyed putting every thing together. Have a wonderful week!
Comment: Oh, my! Thank you for all the beautiful handmade envelopes. I had a hard time deciding which one to open today. Day 1 was a card and a lovely beaded bookmark. I adore it. I also enjoy reading "fluff". I look forward to opening the rest. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. This swap was a joy to both send and receive.
Comment: Thank you Marie for the lovely calendar envies. I love all three, plus the outer envie! Thanks for lining them too! And you did a great job matching them to my likes even though you didn't have to! My fav. is the one with flowers and butterflies. I've always loved hydrangeas! But they are all beautiful! :)
Response: The calendars are what got me started making envies. It makes my heart happy that you love my choices! :~)
Comment: Oh my goodness!! Marie!!
I totally LOVE my hat/scarf!! It is perfect!!! I wore it to work today and it goes perfectly with my pink wool coat! Thank you so so so very much! I am sure you made this for me, which makes it even more special!
My after Christmas blues have been chased away for sure!! What fun box of goodies! Thank you so much for a most AWESOME swap!! xxoo
Response: Know every time you wear it, you are special. The warmth of friendship.
Comment: lol Yes, I know what cha talking about. The only time you can find pool supplies is in the winter here. lol Case in point: I just bought a sleeveless workout top from Walmart..in winter! No wonder I cant find them in the summer!
Wow, pretty liners in all of them too! Mickey is cute how you add the "mistletoe"overhead. The Spirograph paper really hits a nostalgic chord with me. Thank You so much! Happy New Year!
â™¥ Yeah!!!! Thank you for hosting the swap! I enjoyed making the envies, except of course the unsuccessful hunt for double sided Winter/Christmas paper. Next time I should send the double sided beach scene and add Santa! Happy New Year!!
Comment: Thank you for your package!!! I have just opened day one and I love my gifts! The book will come in handy as I'm always looking for new books to read, I will greatly enjoy the tea, what a fun playing card (I'll probably use it to wrap washi tape around) and the cat card is too funny! I look forward to opening the rest of my envies and am so excited that they arrived when then did! Now that I have these to open it feels like I'm counting down until Christmas. :) I wish you a very merry one and a Happy New Year!!! Blessings and Hugs.
Response: :~) Funny I was thinking of Advent as I put the envies together! Hope you enjoy the rest as much as the first!
Comment: Marie! How cute are you!!!! The box...adorable...the envelopes...adorable. I am going to have a good week! And the kids are so excited! I am sure I will be messaging you more as the week goes on. Thanks so much!!
Response: So glad you liked them! I had hoped to send more anime. Will keep on the lookout. You must let me know if your son likes something more specific. Oh, and which Doctor is your other sons ? :~)
Comment: Terrific envies, Marie. Luv them...all! And your Tiffany ad envie? Perfect! I might never have found Mayan Cocoa Spice Tea....sipping it now...YUM! Mannnny hearts and hugs coming your way...jinanne
Response: So glad you liked it!!! I found the tea through swap-bot, am happy to share a new favorite! Hugs~
Comment: Marie, your envelopes are enchanting. I adore them! Thank you for choosing to share them with me. Whoever I send them to in the future is in for a treat. Hugs and hearts for your stellar efforts to exceed expectations for this swap. I'm inspired! â¤â¤ jinanne
Response: Thank you for the wonderful words of encouragement!
Comment: I opened the package to get a note to rate you and found a whole package of little Disney Envelopes- thank you so much- I have put them all in a small bowl and will use them as a decoration until they are open and gone. One had come apart- in it you were thankful for music because of peace and calming. I use music for exactly the opposite. I live pretty much in quiet unless I have a lot to get done quickly- then I crank 70's and 80's rock and roll and can get a lot done very fast. I look forward to reading your notes in November.
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap, I love your recipe cards, and the bible verses. Thanks for the extra recipe cards so cute, they will come in handy. I am going to stick them in my bible, when I come across a bible verse I like I will use the blank ones you sent me. I will have my swap put to you by Tuesday for the THCC bible recipe card. Blessings to you.
Comment: Hey!! Oh my gosh! I am so busy enjoying each morning, with coffee thanks to you, I totally didn't rate right away! Sorry!!! Anywho...You are AMAZING!! Then envelopes alone are awesome! I love the papers and the heart closures! I am using those in my Bible Journaling!! I am not through the entire week, but I see a BEAUTIFUL quilt project coming together! I still have more envies to open!! YAYE ME!! :) xxoo Thank you so much!!!! You bless me with your sweet words, as much as the gifts. Especially about Chloe Rose. Thank you so very much. xxoo
Response: :~} I want pictures of the finished project! Sammy's been getting lots of extra loveâ™¥! Give Zoey a big hug and scratching for us!
Comment: Thank you for sharing you:) I tried to read Hotel on the corner of bitter and sweet and I couldn't finish it. Palomino I loved and the Notebook is awesome! I love Nicholas Sparks books. Mysteries are my favorite genera. I rode my bike a lot too. Played outside but, I liked to play Sega, Barbies, My Little Pony, listen to music and such. My crafts include pocket letters and some DIY projects but not too difficult. Right now I'm finishing up a tire minion. I repurposed an old window. I have a couple other things in line to-do.
Response: It always amazes me how one persons favorite, just doesnt do a thing for someone else! Glad we do have a few common interests ðŸ˜ƒ Barbies, I almost forgot. We didn't have any of her fancy accessories, but we used tennis shoes for jeeps and high heels for sports cars. I wonder if Mom ever discovered why she only had one shoe per pair?
Comment: You are in luck you're mail survived the terrible flooding but my thoughts n prayers are with all of Louisiana. Just saw it on national news here in WV :-( Thanks for the cute hoot owl stickers, recipe and Hebrews bible verse
Response: I am so glad! Thank you for the â™¥ and the prayer; especially the prayers!
Comment: Wow! What can I say but thank you so much! What a pleasure it was to open my envies each day. So many wonderful things tailored just for me. I absolutely love everything that you sent. Thank you for taking the time to make this a fabulous swap. Wish I could give you more than one heart! <3 <3 <3
Response: :~) Welcome! I am so glad you like the swap! 7 days of happy mail is probably my favorite- shhh. â˜º
Comment: Marie...Thank you for the awesome ladybug stuffed envie of God's small creatures!! This was such a fun swap!! I enjoyed your scripture passages on the wisdom and beauty of God's creatures!! Your handmade bugs are so creative and some are so delicate and the buttons are over the top adorbs!! You can BUG ME anytime....hugs, Charlene
Response: Charlene, I am so glad you liked them! This swap was so much fum putting together. (The buttons were my favorite part!!!)
Comment: Thank you so much for the gemstones, green tea, green envie u mailed with, glass jar mailing address label thing, giraffe sticker, gingerbread man sticker and ornament and anything else green that you sent that just brought a big smile to my face today :-)
Response: Smiles are the best Thank you!
(The â™¥ is nice too!) :~)
Comment: Hi Marie! You sound like an AMAZING cook. I had such fun reading through the recipes you sent--my mouth was watering! I opened your envie on the way to the grocery store (my hubby was driving) and I actually bought ingredients for your Pina Coladas that day! haha! Next up is Gramma's Lemon Ice Box pie ;+) (p.s. your envie was beautiful!)
Response: Thamk you! Hope you like them as much as we do!
Comment: Thank you for the interesting teas. I'm looking forward to trying them. I like the assortment of buttons as well. Thank you, too, for your welcomed letter. Look for me at your mailbox sometime soon.
Response: :~) Glad you liked the goodies. I enjoyed putting it together.
Comment: It's interesting how you took a different take on the story than I did. It's always good to have different perspectives on a story, it makes them richer and more meaningful. And thanks for hosting!
Response: Welcome! It amazes me how God can reveal something new to everyone!
Comment: Marie!!!! Oh my goodness!!! My box!! The box alone is SPECTACULAR!! So happy!! My mailbox was practically glowing when I pulled up!! The envelopes are works of art!! I can't believe them!!!! Well, I can, because it is you!!! :) So, I am going to put all the sweet envelope decorations in my journal!! Guess what the first envelope I chose had inside?!! YES!!! A super cute fat quarter for me to make something out of! I think I am going to make a little table covering so that all the doggies show!! I'll put a border around it and it will be perfect! Thank you a million hearts!!!! Can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings my way!!! xxoo
Comment: Marie, I much I enjoyed your thoughts about the women in Ruth's story. They are each totally unique and different from each other. Thank you for the time and thought that I can tell went into your writing. Hope all is well with you and yours! God Bless!
Comment: Thank you so so much for that absolutely beautiful pocket letter for Easter!! I loves everything about it!! I loved all the scripture verses and let me twll you, it could not have come at a better time...the goos lord knew i needed some uplifting encouragement right now. Just to let you know, my husband suffered a heart attack last week and we have gone through a difficult time, but he is doing well and we are very positive and optimistic for a great recovery. God is good all the time and it is such a blessing to knowbrhat my swapbot community paired me with you for a partner. Thia pocket letter was waiting for me in the mailbox when we got home from the hospital and it wasnso so beautiful and just what i needed. .again thank you for all the goodies and wonderful inspiration. What an encouragement and i just want to tell you how blessed i was to receive it... your friendnin texas. ...Diana
Response: Thank You!!! Knowing that God used me to help you, means so much. Your note has blessed me greatly. I will lift you and your family up in prayer. God bless!
Comment: You and I have very similar answers... Jealously and resentfulness. I actually said "wow" aloud as I was reading your responses. I appreciate digging into these lessons deeper, going beyond the childhood stories.
Comment: Thank you for a awesome package! I am crazy over everything. I love the road trip stickers. They are so cool! I have always wanted to go on a road trip. No destination, just drive til I decide to stop. Sounds like so much fun. Maybe someday... :) Have A Happy Day!
Response: When we lived in Texas we would leave the house in the morning & drive through the hill country until... We loved our day trip. We have done a few in Louisiana. One day...
Comment: Marie, you crack me up! I adore my A goodies. Thank you. By the way, "seal now" means sealing when you sign up, not piling until you know who you send to. ****Please giggle at that so I know I didn't just insult you. :)
Response: I never was one to strictly follow the rules! I will do better for B... I might have to do a sealed envie inside another envie! OK, I will try. ;~)
Comment: I loved reading your responses to this swap and particularly enjoyed the personal note at the end. :D Never apologize for sending something you love or enjoy doing. I'm especially happy to learn that we served in the same US force...although nurses were the bane of my existence when it came to annual vaccinations (I'm a needlephobe when it comes to shots). Nevertheless, I loved them - except when sticking me. ;) I have NOT heard of Moth and I am now off to check that out so thank you for the tip. And again, thank you for a lovely swap. xoxo
Response: Needles. The only needles I like are meant for sewing or knitting! Fingers are crossed- good luck at the Moth!
Comment: Wow, what an amazing swap!!! You blew me away with your generosity and I love that you decorated the packaging in my favorite theme. I have only opened one of the envies (the one with the recipes, tea and Bible verses) and I'm eagerly anticipating opening the rest. What a great idea to include flowers and the Easter items. I've been having a rough go of it lately, so your package has really brightened up my day. I hereby shower you with hearts. :) Thank you and Happy Easter!!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for a great pocket. I loved the theme :) & the papers you used were really neat. Also did you paint on them or stickers? It was really neat. I loved the Coke postcard. It is on display in my craft room with my Coke collectables.
Response: Wish I could say I painted, but I cheated and used stickers. Glad you liked it :-) The paper came from Michaels. Coke memorabilia always takes me back to my childhood. I am happy the pc has a good home!
Comment: Oh Marie!!! What a package!!! I have been home with the flu since Tuesday, so today is the first day I felt like I could sit up! Just opening up the box was a joy! The coffee cup towel is awesome!! The envelopes are so beautiful!! Today's "happy" is the towel, so tomorrow will bring a week of more "happy"! Thank you so much, Marie! I am soothing my sore throat with a cup of tea in the mug you sent to me a while back! I use it all the time! :) Love, Shannon xxoo
Response: oh no!!!!! Get better! Nurses orders! I drink my tea plain, no sugar, no milk, unless I'm sick, then I love honey and lemon. I fell better as soon as the fragrance reaches my nose ;~)
Comment: What a wonderful pocket letter and goodie surprise!! Thank you so much for making it just my style! My husband and I both loved the "No Pink" reference, especially since we both love her music! And the candy will be perfect for our Deadpool Valentine's day movie date! LOVED IT ALL!!!!
Response: No pink was my favorite part! I really enjoyed the swap. Hope you had a good valentines.
Comment: Thank you so much Marie! I wish I could send 7 hearts to you. I'm excited to open my envies. The one I opened tonight were awesome ATC starter backgrounds. I received this swap several days ago and they got lost away. I'm glad you reminded me to get them out. This is going to be a great week!
Comment: Thank you! I enjoyed reading your letter and I am crazy over my surprises! I am in love with the farmer's market stickers. They are so awesome! We will use the spoon, fork & knife clips in the kitchen all the time. They are so cute. :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful swap! It put a big smile on my face. I love the bookmark you made. I want to make some like it. :) Everything is great! I can't wait to enjoy a cup of the tea. There is still snow on the ground and I am getting a cold, so it is perfect timing for a new tea to try. Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: I bought a book"thong" several years ago and have used it as a guide to make several over the years. Hope the tea kept you warm & toasty.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome package!!! First, I love the wrapping! It looks like it was just dropped off by Santa! :D Second, I love the things you included! And you included so much! :D The kitchen items I will definitely be using right away. :) It's christmas all year round here! :D lol. I also love the stickers and the bottle tags. :) Unfortunately the post office wasn't too kind to the package. The plate came in pieces. :/ But everything else came perfect. :) Thank you so much! I loved all the items. :)
Response: Oh no! Do you think one of Santa's reindeer was upset I did not sent a reindeer and broke the plate? Next time I will use bubble wrap instead of trusting those bubble thingies I used! ;~)
Comment: Wow, you did an amazing job on this one. It was just what I needed to get me motivated to start eating better and exercising regularly. Thank you so much!! And the chocolate is my favorite brand!
Response: I am so glad! Good luck on being healthy in 2016!
Comment: Thank you! I was super excited to see this package! I love the box with the little animals. I will be using it after Christmas for my crafting supplies. When I opened the box, I squealed with happiness! Seriously! Seeing all those goodies packed inside was exciting. I believe I will wait a couple of days to start opening them, so I can open one a day up until Christmas. Thank you so much for the envies & presents. I know I will love them. You always send amazing things! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Oh, I wanted to let you know I have my "Jack Frost" for the letter J swap out. I plan on keeping him out all winter. He's the cutest thing! Thank you for making me smile! :) Have A Happy Day! Hugs, Christina
Response: I forgot about Jack! Glad he didn't melt away. ; ) ! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hi Marie!! Thank you for the awesome package! I had a yummy cup of cocoa last night, the kind with the mint!! Oh so good!! I did share a few sips with Paul! He loved it too! It has been a crazy work week, so it was so nice to sit down for a bit last night and open up your package! It felt like a big hug, through the mail! xxoo Shannon
Response: Hugs are a big thing in our house! Glad to know they can reach across country!
Comment: This is a wonderful, wonderful package! You put so much time and love into it, and read my profile well. I am so excited about everything you sent, and your artwork is perfect and personal. It's just all so special and I thank you very much. Wish I could give you a hundred hearts!
Response: :~) Welcome! I am glad you liked the art!
Comment: Have I told you lately how wonderful you are? My week of envies has turned into a two-week celebration. Package arrived (or rather i got to the p.o.) the day after mom left, so I mailed her envelope out to her on Saturday. I've opened three so far. The notion of the general paying for a wrongdoing is really compelling, and I squealed when got the email from amazon -- found out just yesterday what it went with! Thank you!
Comment: Oh Marie!! You never fail to make my day!! Thank you so much for the awesome swap! I love pumpkin everything, so it will be fun to give these a whirl!! And I love my little pumpkin you made for me!! I brought it to work and put my coffee cup on it!! You are soooo sweet!! I love swapping with you!! xo Shannon
Response: Hope you enjoy the pumpkin treats! Oh! I hope the pumpkin brings a smile to your face- at work we all need a smile â˜º
Comment: Thank you! I love everything you sent. I am excited to read the Bible studies. I am happy you included them. The turtle dish cloth is awesome. :) The card and the coloring book are so cool and I am crazy over the postcard and bookmark! Thank you for another awesome swap! :)
Response: So glad you liked it! When I realized the coloring book was almost 30 year old I had to get them!
You cont to be on my prayer list.
Comment: Hi Marie! What a lovely swap. The Jewish Bible is beautiful indeed. I will have to use that on in my studies. I especially liked the "death-dark ravines" reference, because life seems to have those places and He is with us even there. Thank you for sending the Proverbs 31 study as well. That was great reading and I love your insights! The card with the Mama sheep and her baby is just beautiful! And the Trust in God's timing bookmark is hanging in my work cube, as a reminder. I am totally in His Hands. You are such a blessing to me, friend!
Response: : )
Right now I am looking at scriptures that show God's light. His light really stands out in those dark ravines! Thank you for your kind words. This group has brought me many blessings!
Comment: Thank you so much Marie for the lovely package! It really brightened my day, and I simply can't wait to try all the teas you sent and look through the magazine. :) I will certainly have to have a tea party very soon! Again, thank you so much!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great dishcloth - but I think it's more a hot pad. Your creativity is awesome. Funny that you sent me a pattern for an apple dishcloth. That is the exact one I sent my partner. Happy crocheting!
Comment: **Love the Apple Letter you sent with all the Great Info..,the pattern for Dishcloth and recipes and the Apple Cutting Board.. You are now the "Apple of My Eye" Thank You so Much.. ! ! and you decorated the Envie with Apples too**.. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Comment: Thank you for an amazing N swap! I love everything, but I must say those napkins are so awesome! :) How will I ever use them?!? I don't want to stain them. No eating spaghetti and using these beautiful napkins! They are so pretty! I seriously love them! I am so happy! :)
Response: We got several at the auction... you just might be seeing more of them. *P* for pretty, *Q* for quaint, *R* for retro... *w* for white. Not sure I can use them for z! ; )
Comment: Hi Marie! What a great swap!! Thanks so much for the seasonings and all the fun treasures you included! I was laughing out loud as I read your picnic story! You have a way of writing that I feel I am right there with you! :O)
Response: So glad you enjoyed it. It is one of my favorite stories. Any time we hear John Denver it brings a smile.
Comment: Thank you so much for another awesome swap! I enjoyed reading about your herb garden and I will try the recipes. I can't wait to try the herb infuser. It is really cool. I didn't have one, so it made me so happy! :)
Response: I bought 3. 1 for me. 1 for you and an extra. Hope you are able to use it often.
Comment: Hi Marie! What a great box of fun!! The coffee is sooooo yummy! And I am going to be trying the seasonings too! They sound so good! I really enjoyed reading your letter and learning more about you and where you lived and now live. It looks like such a neat town! Your city hall building is so beautiful! I really have enjoyed looking through the brochures and seeing the places you like! Thanks so much for the time you took in making up such a fun box! I liked how it was wrapped in your newspaper! So cool!! Thanks for sharing a bit of your world with me! You are a great tour guide!!!
Response: :) I enjoyed reading up on the areas history. Glad you liked the coffee!!!!
Comment: Thank you for your story -- I really didn't get a sense of who the people were or where they were. Have you read any books about writing or do you read the magazines for writers? They can give you a lot of ideas about how to create story, character, setting.
Response: Thank you. This was my first attempt. I shall take your advice. The story was of a married couple driving down the interstate, rehashing an old argument.
Comment: Thank you for your Re-Send, Maria! I received it yesterday. I must say, too, that I found your first postcard after you said it was of blueberries. I had received your original postcard but because there was no swap name on it, nor even your real name or user id, I didn't know who it came from or what postcard swap it was for. So I give you a heart for sending a second postcard. :) Thank you!
Comment: I like the way you did this swap. Thank you. Thank you also for the extra's. It brings me great joy that you like and use your A to Z book! I mix Texas and my family there. I haven't set foot on it since 1991.
Response: Gene & I want to retire there one day. Glad you liked the swap. I have such fun coming up with new ways of doing the same thing!
Comment: I wish that I could give you multiple hearts and hugs!!!
Thank you so very much for yummy new-to-me tea =) Your lovely card and last but not least the sticker gift for Katie! ((That really touched my heart!)) You're an angel Marie, Thank you!!! xxx
Response: Isn't finding a new tea awesome? I am so very glad you enjoyed the swap.and hugs are always welcome! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the yummy happy mail! The recipes look great. I am crazy over the recipe cards. I can't wait to write my strawberry salad recipe on one. I really like the kitty cat card that said "Relieve Stress... take a prayer break." That was so cute. Got to put that in a place where I will see if often. Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: Today I found the cutest strawberry buttons! Oh well. I was so excited when I realized the recipe card had a basket of strawberries, not apples!!!!! :)
Comment: I just got a chance to open the envelope. I love those recipe cards. How did you do it, is it a template? Where did you find them?I love the recipes too and you are right about it getting harder...lol...if there has been repeats I haven't noticed :)
Comment: Thank you for another amazing swap! I love it all & it was wrapped so beautifully. Jack Frost is so awesome! I will find a special place for him during the winter months. I jumped for joy at all the J surprises. I am going to try one of the Jambalaya recipes you sent. Not sure which one yet. A family friend use to make it when I was younger & I did like it very much. I have never made it, so I am excited to have your recipes to try. My favorite thing in the J swap was the jewelry and the letter with it. It meant a lot that you shared & what the note said. Thank you so much for being a friend and making me feel so much better & more positive about things. I am so happy that you join so many swaps. I love having you as a partner. You are very encouraging. Hugs, Christina
Response: I am always surprised how the swaps turn out. I start with an idea... Jambalaya and end up with jewelry. After I dropped the swap in the mail I received your rainbows. Coincidence? God is everywhere, we just have to open our eyes and ears! We serve a great and marvelous God. He cares enough to send us our own special rainbow.
Comment: Marie, everything you sent is perfect. You picked things I really like. I'm no good at keeping the rules either. I'm constantly over packing my envies. And whoever said the pocket letters should fit in a legal size envelope just must not be doing it right. LOL. Thank you so much! Diane
Response: Glad you liked them! We rule breakers must stick together!
I will be putting the pocket letter regular envelope to the test real soon!)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful package!!! Sorry for the slow rate, I had been without internet, nearly killed me, lol! I think you did a great job finding items, so no worries :) Thank you again!!
Comment: Oh Marie!! What a beautiful box of goodies!! I have the coffee table topper on my breakfast nook table! Did you make that? And I am having coffee out of my mug today! I am going to start opening my envelopes each day, today, when I get home from work. The box you sent just made me smile! I love the tape you put on it! Too cute! I can't wait to see what the next 7 days bring! I feel so lucky to have you as my "sender" again for this round! :) What fun! xxoo Shannon
Response: Wish I could say I made the topper. It was something I loved, but never used, I was so hoping you liked it!
Comment: I loved the yarn colors that you used! It really does remind me of spring. And a special thank you for sending me an extra cloth. This is the first dishcloth swap that I'm participating in and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I haven't sent out my package yet, so your dishcloths give me something to measure against. Thank you!
Response: So glad you joined! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful squares, and I especially thank you for sending extras!! You're right, the variegated yarn does remind me of dragonflies too! Thank you for personalizing for me!! The squares you sent go beautifully together and are nicely made! I thank you so much!! Chari
Response: Sometimes I worry over my choices. This time the colors just came together. Glad you liked them.
Comment: Oh Marie... I just opened the swap package a few minutes ago. These pot holders are absolutely beautiful... I LOVE how you incorporated the purple... Thank you very much dear, beautiful work! <3
Response: I am so glad you liked them! I was worried!
Comment: i was delighted to receive your pretty dishcloths ~ so glad you are inspired
to make these useful items! i never had much reason to get into granny square
connecting, having started making dishcloths, i hate to do anything more difficult,
honestly! oh well. thanks again & enjoy a spring full of fun with yarn!
Response: They are so simple, you can get them done in an afternoon!
Comment: I received your crochet thread dish cloth today and it's so beautiful! I love the antique-looking colors you chose. I agree with your husband, it does look like lace. Almost too pretty to use, but only almost, since I know how well they launder. Thank you, and I'm glad you enjoyed the swap!
Response: I love that cloth. I imagine a a dress in that pattern... maybe one day! Or I might just do a Christening blanket,
Comment: Thanks so much for your comments, Marie! I love your mom's question! Too true! ðŸ˜„ With Tinkerbelle it's just the opposite. I'm clearly her "momma" and she follows me everywhere! My husband is more like her chew toy. LOL! Have a wonderful weekend!
Response: It is funny how we are trained into our roles! We only think we train our animals, they know better!
Comment: Thank you for another awesome swap! I love all my pink items! :) The dish cloth is awesome. I love the Mardi Gras beads and the story about it. I want to try making the wildflower seed bombs. That's a cool idea. Thank you again for everything! Your swaps are always so amazing!
Response: let me know if you make the wildflower seed bombs, I want to know how they turn out! I always have fun with your swaps!
Comment: Hi Marie! What a wonderful package! And such great timing! I have been so sick for a week and a half and today I opened up my package and it is just so beautiful! I love the little pink knit bag you put the envelopes in! So precious! Did you draw the two ladies on the front of the card? They are adorable! Today I opened up the Mardi Gras envelope and I love it! I love your story too! What an uplifting swap this is! I have 7 days of fun, while I work at feeling better! Your package will help with that process! xxoo Shannon
Response: I am so glad you liked the Mardi Gras envelope! I traced the ladies, but the crochet bag is all me. Since the Nyx parade threw purses, I thought the bag was perfect. I originally planned to use the bag as a little girls Christmas stocking. Hope you recover quickly. (this swap is my second favorite, my favorite is the seal and send letter swaps.)
Comment: Holy yowza! Thank you so much! The colors are gorgeous & I love that post card. I was in the Navy & lived on a ship, so a houseboat on a river would be a cool place to be! Thank you again for the amazing squares & pc!!
Response: that is one of my favorite post cards! Thanks!
Comment: Wow! What can I say about this swap? It was super awesome!!! Thank you so much! You sent so much and went way beyond what the swap called for. I am crazy about it all. The magnet is on the fridge. I am crazy over the book! I have read it and love it! It is on the bookshelf with other special books. Everything was really totally awesome! I really like the scripture you sent and the little prayer was so cute! It made me smile. Thank you again for being such an amazing swap partner! :)
Response: I read a version of the prayer years ago & fell in love! I have prayed it many a day!
Comment: Thank you! I just want to say you are awesome and God is amazing! :) I was sitting here almost in tears because I need to find another job & that is hard to do right now. I opened the first envelope in the stack and what falls out? A pretty green paper that says "God will provide for you. 1 Timothy 6:17"! I am putting it on the wall in the bedroom. That made me feel so much better. I am not crying now and know that God will provide the right job at the right time. Everything else in my envie was awesome too! I enjoyed the story & the magnet is super cool. Haven't tried the tea yet. I have worked all night & it's bedtime for me. I'll try it later. I can't wait to open the other envies. Thank you so much! Your swaps always make me feel so happy!
Response: You are very gracious. I never have to worry when I get your name, I know it will work. I loved the magnet! Let me know if you have a favorite of the teas.
Comment: Thank you! I really enjoyed reading the note you sent with the swap. The soup recipes sound so yummy! I will try them soon. There is nothing better on a cold winter's day than a bowl of soup! :)
Response: Lazy days, Mom would put on a pot of soup in the morning (or night before) and serve with sandwiches. We loved lazy day meals!
Comment: Thank you! I am so happy with all my purple items. I really want to try the lavender recipes. And I am especially crazy about the worry stone. As always, you are such a wonderful person to swap with. Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: I will plan on planting a new lavender plant this year, my last one froze :( Bet if you could add a few pods to your morning tea...
Comment: Thank you. Is so very pretty! Recipe for the cherry pie sounds so good. Will try it. But will be some time before I do. As I'm not feeling so well lately with this M.S.
Response: I love creating new things when I crochet. It is rare that I am excited about the finished project. I always think about how it would have been better. The pie is one of my all time favorites. So glad you enjoyed it!!!!
Comment: Sorry Marie,I have had this, been a bit hectic here. Love everything and no repeats I could say there were repeats for extras recipes. lol. I plan to try the bean soup next weekend. I'm a bean fan, not in everything, like green bean salad, never could like it! Thanks!:)
Response: Hope you like the bean soup. I have made it many times, never exactly the same. Let me know how your grandkids like it.
Comment: Thank you for the absolutely awesome package! I am crazy over everything. My favorite is the Christmas recipe book and the story in it. Thank you so much for sharing! This is such an awesome book that I can add my own recipes too. You are an amazing swapper! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: My friend Cole sent me a little recipe book as an extra. I thought it was such a wonderful idea that I have added one in a few of my Christmas swaps. Glad you like it!
Comment: thankyou so much marie for the 2 recipes you sent me. i loved recieving them. i love hearing about where there from too as i have a small cookbook obsession lol i like to sit and read them :) and try making new things. hope you have a wonderful christmas.
Response: I can read recipes for hours! Merry Christmas!
Comment: How delightful! You went up and beyond in making my day. I will treasure the recipe book and stocking (so lovely). My desk needed a decoration. Looking forward to trying the tea and will definitely enjoy using a different seasoning! You are more then kind and even the "weanie" recipe looks wonderful! Many hearts to you! Thank you so very much.
Response: I must admit I'm proud of my stockings and have added them to many swaps... Let me know if you like the Tony's, around this area it is the salt of choice! The beanie-"weanie" was my favorite contribution! Now you must allow me to resend a swap later if I accidentally repeat an A-Z!
Comment: Thank you!!! I wish I were as cleaver as you with these swaps. I shall try next time to write a more creative letter. You already know my favorite part of the swap was reading your letter! I do love everything you sent. The envelopes are so cute. And I can't wait to try the Eggplant Parmesan recipe. Thank you also for the extras. I can't wait to swap with you again! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: Tell you a secret, my favorite part is writing the letter! I love to see how everyone makes the letter work! My fingers are crossed you will like the Eggplant as much as I do! I will take a moment to bask in your praise before I get to work on ferreting our fabulous food ideas...
Comment: Sorry for the mix up...
Thanks ever so much, just the thing to begin the most wonderful time of year at all! :D
Response: I am so sorry you did not receive my card. I sent 2 pm's asking if you had received, on Nov 6 you responded you would let me know if you had not received the the card. As I did not hear back after my second PM I assumed the card would be received. I will resend when the PO opens on Monday.
Comment: Thank you! I really loved the letter D swap and thank you for including the letter E. I was so excited to read your letters! That is always my favorite part of the swaps you send. I am crazy about the legend of the dogwood card you sent. The dogwood is my son's favorite tree. Mine too. Everything was awesome! Thank you for all the extras! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: My mom's favorite flower is the Dogwood. Excited to hear it is your son's (& your) favorite tree!
Comment: Wow! This is the nicest handmade ornament I have ever received. Very nice! I wish I knew how to crochet. The little mouse button is adorable, and I love the fabric brads too! Thank you very much! This was a wonderful surprise. <3
Response: so glad you liked! when I saw the mice buttons, I had to get them for the project!
Comment: Thank you for the gift. I'm putting them in a box so I'm not tempted to open them yet. Thank you for the Bible verses too, and the address labels with daisies (my favorite). I'm surprised someone else has my great grandma's favorite cookie recipe, thank you for sending it to me, it gave me a smile in remembering my grandma. :)
Response: I always associate my gramma with cooking! Loved to visit with her.
Comment: Always a treat to get from you, Britt loved the lemon board and knife and I love the apple cutter, mine are getting old and they are not this cute, Love hot dogs too. great recipes! thanks so much, your awesome:)
Response: You can never have enough apple cutters or scissors ;) Being partnered with you is always fun, you get my sense of humor!
Comment: I have been seeing recipes for this sandwhich since last year. Someone even posted in a serious food group that I am in with Yahoo. WOW! To have this postcard with a recipe for it is awesome. Thank you very much. Eggnog is something that I never made and miss very much from the USA. thank you sweetie for a truly extra special treat, Deb
Response: I have really enjoyed having you as a partner. I hope you enjoy the egg nogg. Good luck with the sandwich, hope it is all that you want!
Comment: Thank you for the scripture of John 24:7... I needed that! <3
Response: I apologize, I wrote the reference wrong...John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Comment: OMG! you are such a wonderfully fun person, and its awesome that your hubby helped out too, what a sweetie! I loved everything and your note was just fun to read, when the boys come over, we are going to be eating some fun jello! loved, loved,loved it!!!
Response: When Gene found the jello molds I knew I had to send them to you. I had lots of fun looking up recipes to fill them with. Not sure if the hand is "freezer-safe", but I thought that would make great ice for a punch. Let me know what the boys think! ;)
Comment: Holy cow you really surprised me with so many fun profile goodies. I love everything you sent and I will use it all! The haiku is awesome BTW you definitely need to write more of them. Wowee you covered goats, bikes (never seen paperclips and washi like that), fibers, bookmarks, citrus...I hope I didn't leave anything out. My favorite recipe is lemon zucchini muffins which perfect for the lemon recipe cards. Thanks so much and 50 hearts to you!
Response: I love a challenge! I plaid with several ideas, but I just couldn't get the goat to eat drink the lemonade! Glad the recipe cards will work. (I fell in love with the bicycle paperclips!)
Comment: I just read your letter for this swap. I laughed! I cried! You are officially my favorite person to swap with! Thank you so much! The first paragraph of you letter had me laughing. When I read the Bible verse, I was crying before I even finished. I needed to hear that. Thank you for including it. I am crazy over everything you sent! I can not wait to swap with you again! You always make my day! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: I enjoy a swap that make me think. Sort of puts me back in school, and I want an A! But I can not take all the credit, I do ask God's guidance, especially for scripture swaps. Thank you for the wonderful comments-they mean alot. God bless!
Comment: Thank you! I am always so happy when you are my partner. I absolutely enjoy reading your letters. They are always cheerful and fun! You get hearts just for writing! I do really like everything you sent. I will have to try the recipes. They sound yummy. The scripture cards you make are awesome. And the one you chose for this swap is perfect! You are an awesome swapper! Thank you for everything and for joining the swap! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: My dad always called me the apple of his eye, that made me feel so special. When I realized that I was the apple of God's eye too... I knew that even when I messed up, he would always love me & I could go to him, just like my dad. (Psalms 17:8) Glad you liked it!
Comment: These recipe cards are gorgeous. I love them. Where do you get them? The recipes sound so good and I can't wait to try them. The first one that I am going to try is the lemon icebox pie, I'm drooling because it sounds so good. I have an overload of zucchini and so next will be the zucchini cake. Then I will try the molasses cookies. I never have had these but they sound yummy. The printer recipe card is fine and I should have put that in my swap info so swappers could do this. This was a great package and I am going to enjoy these recipe cards very much! Have a great Fall Season and enjoy the upcoming holidays. Happy Swapping!!
Response: So glad you liked them! I bought a few of the cards at a specialty shop while visiting Virginia, a couple from Dollar Tree (shhh), but most have been extras in other swaps. (I only sent those that I had more than 1.) My gramma started making the Lemon pie in the 1940's- We all love it! Thank you fro the wonderful swap!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great sounding recipes. We are getting into some perfect fall weather for them very soon here:)...Just so you know...both envelopes arrived...even the one with the forever stamp:)
Response: Nothing is better than a bowl of warm soup on a cold day!
Comment: This is just to cute! We do not have these lemon shaped cutting boards or knife in our dollar tree. My niece makes rotel I have never tried, but will try this one. love the moonshine recipe. we sell lemonade moonshine at the store. just got in peppermint moonshine, which is delish! always a treat to get your letter. Thanks for as usual a wonderful swapping experience:)
Response: Peppermint moonshine? sounds like a Christmas treat, just add the candy cane! I am glad I was able to give you dollartree find that you didn't find! ;)
Comment: I was away on a little vacation and when I arrived home your wonderful grannie squares were in the mail for me! They are beautifully done and sure put mine to shame!! Thank you, too, for the recipe. love, love, love potato soup! Thanks much!! Chari
Comment: Love to find you in my mailbox, so thats how you cook a good brisket,and love banana nut bread so I don't mind at all you sending the recipe, and yes please on the molasses cookie recipe, molasses cookies are so good. always enjoy the letters, Thanks bunches:)
Response: Will send the molasses cookie recipes next. I gave them out as gifts last Christmas.
Comment: Excellent as always! I'm a 7up and sprite fan, when I was younger it was Dr. Pepper. You are always a treat to have as a partner:) recipes sound yummy! do let me know on what your family thinks on your chicken, that should be fun!
Comment: Marie, I really enjoyed your choice of a life verse, or in you case, a Psalm. That is my favorite book of the Bible, turning to it anytime I am worried, frightened, discouraged, etc. I always find a verse to fit my situation! I also marvel that in spite of all David's sins and mistakes, he was still called "a man after God's own heart"! I will definitely find a use for the card and postcard. Thanks so much and have a blessed week-end!
Comment: Thanks so much for the recipes - especially the smoothie recipe. I've been looking for a recipe that has simple ingredients and which I can easily divide to make just one serving. This one fits the bill! I also really enjoyed reading the stories that go with your recipes.
Response: So glad you liked them! I love smoothies, but I like them for dessert, sshhhh ;)
Comment: Thank you so much for joining this swap, and thank you for the wonderful recipes! I'm glad that you're getting a nice collection! :) Your letter made my day.. Thank you again. <3
Response: I just got my first batch today. I do nor know what is more exciting, someone loving a recipe that is special to you or getting a recipe that is special to someone else. Thank you so much for hosting these swaps!
Comment: I'm going to start some seeds indoors tonight for both the tomatoes and nastursiums! Thanks! I have some other tomato plants started, but it's fun to try different varieties! Thanks for everything, Marie!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful recipe booklet! I love hearing about family favorites! I'm ready to try the Lemon Pie already!! The moon pies were a little smushed, but they'll taste JUST FINE!! :) Thank you for a great swap!
Response: I knew I should have marked the package "FRAGILE!" ;)
Comment: Love love the duckies You got my hopes up with a chocolate casserole but I will try yours....Here is one I found on the net and I will have to try it now due to your teasing
Response: Oh My!!!! With tat casserole, I just might pass on dessert... Nah, you can never have too much chocolate!
Comment: You touched my heart with your kind words, thank you very much. I am going to use the star buttons (which I adore) on a scrapbook layout. I LOVE anything citrus and knowing you guys have eaten this for years... i can't wait to try it. I needed more cards to jot down a recipe I just made up, so the card is in use already. Thank you for thinking of me. :)
Response: Recipe you just made up? I am so jealous! I may alter recipes, but making them up is out of my league! Glad you liked everything.
Comment: Thanks for the unique bookmark! I appreciate you incorporating ideas from my profile to make my bookmark... love the colors ;) Wedding is in exactly 2 months from today! Love the variety of stamps on the package as well :)
Response: So glad you liked it! (The stamps were a happy after thought.)
Comment: Oh my! Thank you so much, Marie!! :) I feel so spoiled!! I loved the octopus you crocheted :D I can't wait to start my devotional and I LOVE the statue of liberty journal!! :) I can't wait to try all of those yummy desert recipes as well!! :) I loved reading your letter! It was so encouraging to me and made me feel so special! Plus, the Easter egg idea was so cute! You're the best! :) I'm gonna add you to the swapper hall of fame list on my profile! God Bless You Marie! Thank you again for making me feel so special! :)
Response: So glad you liked it! I enjoyed putting it together. God bless!
Comment: Hi Marie! Thanks for the wonderful recipes and the equally wonderful stories to go with them. My mother's family has a "molasses cookie" recipe as well, and I also bump up the cinnamon, ginger and cloves because I like the kick. It's crunchy, but not *too* crunchy. (Here in New England, molasses goes in baked beans...yum!) I'm sure we will enjoy all 4 of your recipes! Also thanks for purpling up my day with these pretty beads! Thank you!
Response: I will have to try adding the molasses to baked beans, we always used brown sugar...
