Comment: April...thank you so much for the “generous” goodie package! The embellishments, the stickers, the notecards, the tags, the adhesive, and the paper pad ...🤗...I loved everything that you sent and can’t wait to use in future projects.
Comment: You have blessed me beyond measure! I was so touched by how personal this box of gifts is...the lavendaer, the red cover, the lovely gems and wood pieces....I adore each and every thing you sent and could not be more grateful. I am certain that this is the most delightful thing I have/will receive this Christmas, thank you! It's perfect!!!!!
Response: Shopping for you was so amazing, a lot of the stuff I also got for myself :) I am so glad that you liked everything and enjoyed the package. I think everyone needs an extra special swap once in a while ;)
Comment: THANk u sweetheart. My bro lived in Memphis and I love love the pink Cadillac BBQ place although the name escapes me. We've also got friends up there. I love corkys too. Memphis is pretty cool. Thanks for the tn card
Comment: Very very cute. I love it! And I think I do like it better not mod-podge'd. ;) Plus, sometimes mod-podge likes to stick to book pages if, say, my book gets left out in the sun by accident or something. I can't wait to use it! Thank you!!
Response: You are so right! It does always leave it kinda sticky XD
Comment: Hello April :)
Thank you for the fun variety of crafty things you sent me for this swap. I like the style of the Vera Bradley card set so much that I'm using as a pattern for making my own envelopes. Well, I'll be taking it apart, tracing it onto a pattern, then putting it back together to write on and send it, since I know someone who'll absolutely adore it. :) Thanks also for the generous washi samples and fun denim stickers, all in a neat handmade envelope. Have a nice day! â™¥
Comment: Thanks for the great video! Love all of the halloween decor, and the screened porch and cool lighting out there- and the whole house looks so clean and organized. Clean tile floor! Love all the board games and books too.
Comment: Your Halloween care package is a huge treat! Thank you!!! The Death of a Pumpkin photograph is so funny; the way jack-o-lanterns look as they deteriorate always cracks me up. Really enjoying everything you sent.
Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful treasures, I especially love the photo of the spider web, did you take it? I drank the vanilla comoro tea this morning, and it was beyond delicious. Thank you again for everything, it all made me smile.
Response: Yeah, those Harney and Sons teas are sooooo good!
I snapped that photowhile on a trip to Tulsa Oklahoma and thought it looked really spooky!
Comment: WOW What a wonderful package! I used to collect bandanas and when I retired I downsized my collection to about 20. I've never had a skeleton one. I am so excited! Then I got to all the goodiesðŸ˜€I love everything and your cute envelope bag! You outdid any expectations I had for this swap. Thank you so much! Happy Halloween!â¤ï¸
Comment: April!!!! The covered cross that you made for me is so beautiful and special! I can tell you took great care to make this a profile based theme even though that was not the requirement. The cross is covered in EVERYTHING I love! From moss, to succulents, mushrooms, a butterfly and a precious blue bird! This will have a special place on my wall in my home office so I can look at it every day. I feel so blessed! The note card was so delicately embossed and the prayer verse was so perfect! The verse that you included on the back of the cross is amazingly written. I feel so special to receive this. THANK YOU! Oh and the packaging was also beautifully covered in mail art. Love, love, love!!!
Comment: I was excited to see this swap waiting for me on my doorstep when I got home from work. I love how many stickers were in the package, as well as the assortment of washi tape. Thanks so much!! <3
Comment: Thank you! You have nice handwriting and I tried to smell the card to see if I could smell the mint. LOL! Where did you get your postcard stamp? I have been looking for one but can't find one like yours and I borrowed something similar from my niece.
Response: I got my stamp from Hobby Lobby. I use it ALL the time and would recommend getting one. I did alter it a bit though, I cut off the section that said "hand stamped by" on the bottom portion since it was restricting my writing area. You can also find it on their website
Comment: April, thank you for the big burst of color that was your swap! I absolutely loved it, and it really brought my mood up now that I've spent a few days inside with a flu. So thanks again! ðŸ»ðŸŒˆðŸŒ·ðŸŒ¸
Response: I really enjoyed getting all the items for this swap and especially decorating the envelope! I am so glad that you liked it! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the tutorial and being patient with me! I finally got them up (a few non-appearing ones; I don't know what that's about) and I am so happy! Thanks for the flowers you posted! Excellent! Thank you!
Response: Very good, I am glad you got to try it. its a great way to decorate your profile as well!
Comment: Thank you for the cute Kawaii items. Their something I'm not familiar with so it was nice to get something new. I especially enjoyed the cut out kitty patterns. They made me think of Neko Atsume. I'm addicted.
Response: YES, I thought of neko atsume as well when I saw those!!!
Comment: I just received your wonderful swap again. Thank you so much for the coloring book. Yes, I like them. I was delighted with the notecards. The bandana is so pretty. I used on my head to teach today, and it really looks nice on me. The students loved it :)
Comment: I loved the bright & pretty card I got from you! I love the color combonation (sp?) as much as the design. I really liked hearing about your day, it's been raining hard here, too. I retired from working at the court house here so I know the craziness! Thanks for being my partner.
Comment: Oh Dear, your wonderful package just made my day. Everything is so lovely. I loved the cards and the stickers. You put a lot of effort in this swap. Thanks a lot. And yes, I would love to make more swaps with you.
Comment: I'm a purple 3 of spades! I love it! It is so personalized for me, what fun :) what a creative idea. And you wrapped it up so pretty, too. Thanks so much :). I love how the back is stitched in theme, too.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome assortment of teas! I haven't gone through all the little packets yet but the ones I have are awesome! I love the cinnamon one. :D And I cannot wait to try the red velvet tea. :D Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Thank you SO much for my first cross-stitched pc! I haven't cross-stitched since I was a tween but am recently getting into fiber arts. I love the design you chose as well. So, so lovely! YAY!
Response: Horray!! I am so glad you like it. I was really afraid it would get snagged in a postal machine and destroyed.. so i am glad it made it safely!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely stickers I really liked them ..if you ever wanted to do a sticker swap with me please email me
Hope you have a merry christmas happy holidays to you and your family
Comment: Hi April, I thoroughly enjoyed your intro. It's the best one I've received so far. Very personable and interesting. I also am very much into crystals right now. My latest favorite is a purple flourite that is shaped like a double pyramid. It's a raw stone and just beautiful. Have a wonderful day and be blessed. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Thank you so much for your postcard, I love it! I love Halloween but here in Germany it's not that common, occasionally there's a little trick-or-treating but it's not as big as in the US. So sad about this, would trade Halloween for Christmas! :P
Comment: I love the cute bandana that you sent me. Thank you for the stickers. My daughter liked the ones you sent her as well and says thank you so much. Happy swapping! Thank you for being in this group!
Comment: Got it! Have to reread swap requirements, thought it had to be handmade.... hope I didn't mess up! I loved the vintage look! Too cute! Thank you for the great pc! Hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
Response: Well, I created the postcard using various objects, then scanned it into the computer to edit it a bit then printed it out. I like to "flatten" real objects that way :D thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous homemade card and envie. I adore the card and all the pieces you used. Mine never turn out. Love your Halloween play list, know them all. Have a Spooktacular Halloween! Hugs, Mona
Comment: I double checked and still have not received this. I hate to leave a bad rating so I'm gonna rate a five. If you decide you want to resend I will go back and add a heart. No worries. Your record is good.**received today... Thank you***
Response: Ire sent it today, let my know if you get it :)
Comment: Many tx for your nice letter and swap. I love your tea selection. Yess I love the Harney and Sons mint. I'm glad you send it to me because it's hard to find it here. I know one store to get it, but it's not in my neighbourhood. Mmm cheesecake. I love it. Great you have a cheesecake restaurant. My grandma used to make wonderful cheesecake. Happy swapping !!
Comment: Thank you for the chocolate. I like its wrapper very much and I've got a friend who collects such wrappers. :) I can't wait to taste the chocolate itself, I wonder if it will be much different from ours. :)
Comment: What a lovely package to recieve. I love the super sized envelope and you used lovely colours. I especially liked the use of silver and sparkles. And great idea to use card for the colouring pages. Thanks ðŸ˜ƒ
Comment: Oh April, your day at the Renaissance Faire sounds wonderful and my husband and I loved your envelope. Thank you for sharing your day with us - it was perfect as we too love to go to Faires! We too have round "potion bottles" wrapped in leather for our belts. I love the feather and handmade little bag - you are so kind. I hope to have weekends off one day in my future so I can again attend Faire. *grin* Have a beautiful day!
Comment: Hi April,
Thank you! I received your lovely photos. My 2 faves were Henderson Beach and the Blue Spring. Can you tell I like water? I love, love the Little Melancholy kitty envelope. Super cute. Thanks again!
Comment: April, you outdid yourself! Your letter was so much fun to read, and I LOVED the way you decorated the envelope! The two pictures you included were beautiful. I will certainly write back when I have a free moment, and I hope to see your finished cross stitch(it's turning out lovely!)!
Response: Aww thanks! I really love to read profiles and find ways to make the mail extra special!
Comment: Hi April! Received your awesome postcard today! Love it! Not only very thoughtful, but very thought out! You chose great colors and made your design totally fit in with the paint chip! Can I ask what kind of markers you used to color in the letters? I like how they stand out! Thanks so much! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, I love those green colors! The pens I used are the wonderful Gelly Roll Moonlight, they are so nice and smooth.
Comment: Thanks so much for the stickers! I do love because they are definitely Halloween-y! I love the stationary you wrote on too and the pen looks like it feels fabulous. Congrats on your first swap!
