Comment: Holy cow, Patricia! I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful little junk journal! It's fantastic...and full of great ideas that I may incorporate into my own future junk journals; primary being the torn strips of book page, which adds so much more interest than a simple solid book page. One of the very best things about swapping is the opportunity to learn new techniques and ideas from swap partners! Thank you for providing me with a beautiful little journal and with inspiration galore!
Response: You making me blushed LOL. I am so happy you like it. Happy swapping, happy crafting.
Comment: Wow! Where do I start!? Thanks so much for all of these wonderful goodies. I LOVE the handmade items- these are the tiniest handmade envelopes I've ever seen! Lol and i appreciate the little handmadw journal, washi samples, stickers postcards, stamps and quote and everything else! Thanks for hosting! Great swap
Comment: WOw!! Thank you for everything! I love it all. Esp the tiny butterflies, I always need book pages for my journal and ATC making.and the The pattern sheets will look good on a postcard and ATC. Thank you so much for all the paper! Great swap!!
Response: So happy you like it. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Patty and thank you so much for the journal page with the pockets - stuffed with so many fun things! Your journal page is really fun - I love the different papers and patterns, and love all the tags and goodies you tucked in. And those tiny little envelopes you sent me - they are so cute! Thank you so much - they must be fun to make!
Comment: Thank you for the most lovely journal. You put so much thought into every detail. From the gorgeous button on the front cover, to all the yummy handmade embellishments to the kitty cat book page (which is going straight into my cat jj), I love every bit. :D
Comment: Thank you for the adorable tiny envelopes, stamps, and paperclips. I am super happy about the recipe, as well, as my daughter has been requesting I make lemon bars and I didn't have a recipe. Coincidence????
Response: Awwwwww if life give you lemons....make lemon pie LOL. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: June 8 - Finally received and re-rating, Could have rated a 3 but I am not a petty person. I understand Her being frustrated but her tone On the note inside of the envelope and profile and unapologetic attitude is disappointing and definitely not on me, especially when everything she wrote suggest I am telling a lie of not receiving. she stated this is the 3rd sent and mad that she had to resend. I am a happy soul person - this drained my energy - I Don’t look forward to swapping again with this swapper.
I have received from everyone besides 2 and that includes this swapper. Listen - I don't get down like you suggesting - what would I gain from saying i didn't receive your swap, I am disgusted that I am being suggested to be a bad swapper and to be watched in her profile because i have not received what she sent. I have kept touch and answered every time she messaged, what more can i do. I am blessed with more than enough to craft and design with, i don't need to take. I rate within a day of receiving - I have not received from her but am i calling her a flaker, nope because i dont think she is, to suggest i am because i am new here, not new swapping - is a disgusting thing to do. I will re-rate when i receive
Comment: Thank you for the great items! Love the mini envelopes! I was suprised to see even smaller envelopes inside! I have been wanting to get a mini envelope maker. After seeing these, i m ording one from Amazon today:-). Thank oyu for the vintage ephemra:-). Have a great day and happy swapping!
(sorry for the delayed rating). Please see my profile page if you are in need of an explanation.
Comment: (So sorry this is such a late rating!)
WOW, Patricia, thank you so much for this— my absolute favorite thing here are the vintage BANK NOTES. I rarely receive things like that and i just love them so much. Will keep forever— thanks!
Comment: Hi Patricia and welcome to the group. I want to encourage you with a short saying that I remember when I’m down: “your current situation is not your permanent reality. The best is yet to come!” Indeed it is 💜💞 be strong and be safe and be well! Your new friend, Shannon
Response: Awwwwww you are so sweet. Thank you sooooooo much for the extra lovely rating.
Comment: Hi Patricia! Thank you for the wonderful items in the Quick Pick Swap! I loved it all and my favorite was the 3 fold envelope made with book pages. Do you know of a tutorial on how to do it? I love book page ephemera, I watch the Paper Outpost on YT all the time! :-)
Comment: oh my goodness. I am not exaggerating here. You have set the artistic STANDARD for what I WISHED my best swaps could be! Just amazing! This just made my day.
Where did u find all the vintage cut out people? (Mind you, i showed the envie to my family, and my mom wanted me to ask you)
Second, i loved the AMAZING artwork that went into the homemade envelope.very inspiring!
Thank you for probably my favorite swap ever. Message me if you’re interested in doing a direct swap— I’d really like that! 😊
Response: You are the best rating ever. 😊😊😊 I am so happy you like everything. Thank you for the kindness

Response: Awwwww so happy you like the items. Thank you for the lovely rating.
Comment: Thanks so much for the kit. I did not however see a theme but think I can figure one out. Also...I did not see a shaker bag enclosed or anything to make one unless it was the little yellow mesh bag with the ephemeral pieces. I loved the extra goodie notecards!
Comment: I wish I could give you 10 hearts...love the little books. I also make little books by cutting them from the spine of old magazines...try it, you can make them any size and the resulting pages are always fun!
Response: Awww thank you for your awesome comment, it made my day.
Comment: Sooo, um, the note said to Becky and it's for Valentine's Happy Mail, so I don't know if the contents were correct, but I am suspecting they are for this swap because you did send some very nice Valentine's stuff and I thank you for all of it!
Response: Oppppsss sorry about the name error, but glad you like the goodies, And thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Patricia! This little clutch is simply adorable. I'm so sorry you had issues with the construction--was it the top edge that folds over? That one gave me fits, too! Seriously, I'm very pleased with this and many, many thanks for all the sweet extras you included. Re any of the swaps in the YTPC: I always mean for them to be inspirational--not necessarily to copy something exactly--so it's all good! Love it!
Response: You are so sweet, I was so worried. I really enjoy the swaps, love to create new things, thank you for the lovely rating. FYI I received an awesome clutch from my partner ( I thought you might like to know as an organizer)

Comment: Thank you for your card & extras. I just spent 10 minutes going thru all my swaps looking for your name bc you didnâ€™t write your user name or the swap name on the card. It happens:-)
Response: my apologies for not writing my name. I probably forgot to include the name with the swap name and my user id. Happy holidays

Response: awwww. I am glad you like the envelope. Happy holidays
Comment: Hi Patty, Wow, you got your swap out fast! Thank you! It really made my day opening up all the little surprises packaged up so creatively! You put a lot of thought and care into all of the gifts, so very nice of you. Itâ€™s all fun stuff that Iâ€™ll use and will think of you when I do. Thanks again, this is a great swap!
Response: I love this swap!. and I was getting reasy before the partner was posted :-). I am happy you like it. happy swapping
Comment: Lovely stamps on the envelope which was also decorated with love and care and some great paper ephemera inside which certainly brightened my day and made me smile. For your next swap of covers where the swap is based on the stamps on the envelope you should probably take some care not to tape over the stamps though. I'm sure if I'm careful I can peel it off hopefully. xD Also just so you know the swap instructions said to put more than 5 stamps on the envelope which I initially thought 5 was enough so I would definitely not rate down for that as it was a very easy mistake to make in my opinion. I left a note on the swap page about possibly changing the name to 6+ stamps on an envelope to make it more clear.
Comment: Swap was late and you didn't respond to my message, but I don't believe in sinking someone's rating just because. Nice swap, but communication in the future would be appreciated as I doubt most on here would not be as lenient with their ratings. :)
Response: Please accept my apologies for the delay. thank you for the rating. best regards
Comment: So sorry for taking so long to rate. I have been very sick for over 3 weeks. I absolutely loved the package I received. It was exciting and everything thing was perfect. I loved the way you packaged each item thank you so much. If I could give you more stars I would.
Response: awwww you are so sweet. I hope you are feeling better. happy swapping. best regards
Comment: Hi Patty, Your package arrived yesterday and I still can't decide to open it or wait until Christmas. Thank you for the extra goodies.
I will pass on the ornament too.
Response: no rules. I always tell my kids, yes they are special days, like birthdays, events, christmas, but we should celebrate every day. Sometimes i buy them a present just because i love them and that makes me happy. So in another words is christmas every day!!! with or without presents. :-)
Comment: My Valentine swap was waiting for me when I got home from vacation! I love your handmade flower. You must have used part of a grocery sack. What great recycling! Thanks for all the other goodies! Great swap!
Response: AWWWW happy valentine's, happy everything. thank you for the heart
Comment: Wow - Love it all - and love that hand-made note-card that Gabbi made - of the gorgeous Fairweather Range, in Alaska. Thanks for a great swap - Hope you run this again sometime down the line. Happy day to you.
Response: awwww you are so sweet, thank you for the nice rating
Comment: Hello Patty! Received your card yesterday. Thank you very much, for such a pretty card & for the flat surprise too, of fishing flies. Cool! I love to fish! Well, I hope you & your family have the most wonderful Christmas ever!
Response: so happy you like it. thank you for the heart.
Comment: It came! :) What a cool PC! I didn't even know they made them like this... now I'm gonna have to be on the lookout for more shaped cards :P also thank you for the warm welcome, and the wonderful quote. n_n
I just received the second one, it's lovely! I adore Matisse, the shapes and textures I've always found rather appealing. I would still love to send you another back for your trouble!
Response: thank you for the heart. happy swapping!
Comment: Hi Patty!
Thanks so much for the awesome pocket letter! I love it! I would never guess that you struggled with it since you love to work with colors - it's beautiful and so creative - I would have never thought to use black paper and draw/write with a white pen - I will have to use that idea! Thanks also for all the goodies.
Response: thank you for the sweet comment and the heart. happy swapping
Comment: Thank you very much for your pocket letter. I am not giving a heart only because there really wasn't much disney stuff on there and it didn't really have a theme--like all mickey or all princess, ect. You just kind of stuck cut up stickers in there. Thank you anyways.
Comment: Thank you for the pocket letter. I loved all the little surprises you included, but it was a bit hard to tell the front from the back at first. A lot of the poockets didn't seem to be decorated as much as they had themed items slipped into the pocket. Also, there was a note in the envelope, but no letter in any of the pockets.
Response: My apologies for the poor packaging. I will definitely use some new seals. As,for the letter I always include one I had probably forgot. Thank you for your understanding. Have a great holiday season
Comment: Thanks for the great letter. This is such a fun activity and will lead to a very nice collection when all the letters are completed. I really like that bicycle and also the buttons. Colorful and unique and the goodies were fun too. Thanks for all of your effort putting it together.
Comment: Nice artwork and thanks so much for such a cool postcard. I thought it was neat to see a Westchester Co. postmark too, since I grew up there. 8-) I am also a big fan of NYC. Happy Swapping to you!
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating, happy swapping.
Comment: Wow Patty thank you for the cute glitter snowman Christmas card. And thank you for the cute iron on Christmas images. I think the Santa Claus is adorable. My Mom wants them to make some crossstitch gifts for Christmas. Thanks again! Hope you have a Happy Summer! Fun swap!

Comment: I do love everything inside the box...you sent great stuff and thank you very much!! The three rating is due to having your swap marked as sent on April 6 and it actually not being sent until April 21. But I do appreciate the fun box of stuff.

Comment: such a fun package to dig into! thank u so much for the adorable things u picked for me! those are the first homemade envies I've seen & they inspired my daughter & I to give it a try. and everything was so neatly labeled, even got an "invoice" lol. makes me wish I'd done that for my partner. I'm still learning! I had to fight my daughter off of the tiny envies, she loves tiny things. of course I'll probably give in..ðŸ˜• thank u again!!!

Comment: What a lovely surprise! I just looked for an emery board this morning and found an old crummy one. I told my roomy to remind me to get some! The makeup and scarf are great! The tweezers are another thing I can really use! I love the case because you can hang it on a hook? It won't take up valuable counter space! Thank you so much for everything! Is a great swap. And you are a super shopper swapper! Hope your birthday was a good one!
Response: awww you are so cute, happy you liked the little birthday goodies. thank you for the heart. happy swapping

Response: so happy you like the envelope.Happy swapping
Response: i dont really appreciate the rating, specially since all the contact we been having. I have over 100 swaps and never had an issue including your country. If you did not received any of my 3 packages, i have no control over it since i sent it T H R E E different times, in addition i sent a postcard, just to confirm address, and the possiblity you dont received postal packages. At this time i will like to kindly review your rating, our host has contact and was aware of your missing mail?

Comment: I rec'd your surprise today! I am overwhelmed by the great stuff you sent me. I swear it's like you know my sooo well with the awesome stuff you sent me. I love and have 2 other bracelets that same style, can't go wrong with a green notebook (my fav color), and I didn't even mention it in my profile but i'm French & love anything that represents it (like the notecard you sent). Let me know if you ever want to do a direct swap :)
Response: You are so sweet. Your comment made my day. Happy swapping.
Comment: Thank you for the items. I think it's cool that you made the envelope out of an old train map, but just wanted to let you know that the bottom of the envelope was completely ripped open when I received it, and one side was ripped half way, so in the future, you may want to tape the edges if you send out a similar envelope. The paper is pretty thin, so it may rip again, but cool idea.
Response: Thank you so much for the comment and advice, extra thank you for the heart. Happy swapping.
Comment: I love the skinny you made me it is great for your first one they aren't much different then an ATC only more room thats why I like to make them.I can't believe you even found blue bird stamps to use.
Thanks for the extras.
Response: you are so sweet!!! thank you for the lovely comment and the encorament to continue making skinnys . thanks for the heart, it means a lot regards Patty
