Comment: I love the washi samples and stickers! I had such long beautiful blonde hair growing up. I literally acted like a princess. Lol. Videos games were always my thing as well. I loved playing Need for Speed Underground with my brother. Thank you for all the great washi!!! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the amazing washi tapes!!!! The little folder was such a cool way to package them up, I'll try doing that for future swaps! And the EXTRAS, I was so stoked that they were catered so closely to my profile, thank you so much <3 <3 <3
Comment: I love your little envie you made too- those are great! Thank you for the awesome Halloween washi samples- I love them! Its hard to say, because they really are so great: but I think the "Toil and Trouble" and "Cast a Spell" are my favorites. Thanks for swapping with me!
Comment: Thank you soooo much for the Halloween Washi! They are all amazing and I can't wait to get them into my planner and swap items! Also - the little card pockets are AWESOME! I love how crafty people are - I am just not one of those people. I am excited to put them to good use too! If you decide you want another Washi swap - I'm all in! Thanks so much!
Comment: Very creative (see what I did there??) Totally a house I would want to belong. I so sad the amazing glittery crest you sent came in two pieces. It is very lovely, regardless. Thanks for having fun with this swap!
Response: I will private message you about this. Usually baked shrinky dinks are pretty hardcore and I had no worries about it breaking, I was more scared it would stick and the resin was not full cured
Comment: I got it! Thank you so much for all the washi samples! My favorite might also be the Halloween card, but I like the simply gilded ghosties and the gold framework elephants and the skinny black tape with gold crescent moons. The cat ones are great of course and I also love the quirky chickens one. I like the little folders you made for the washi too, there's something satisfying about how well the cards fit inside haha. I just finished wrapping yours last night and I'll send them out on Monday most likely so look out!
Comment: Thank you for all the fun Halloween washi samples.My favorites include the witch shoes and the potion bottles. I really love the little folders you sent them in. They are so cool! And yes, the stuff you sent in the little bag is exactly what I meant by fun fibers. They will be a great addition to the bookmarks I make.
Comment: Thank you for the great fall washi. I do like the colors. We have several neighborhoods that have many trees that turn red and yellow and I love driving through them. Of course that won't be till sometime next month as our lows have just now got to the 50's with highs in 80s.
Comment: Ha, I peeked at my partner's profile, too.Thank you for the great assortment of randomness! I love the carnival stickers, ribbon, and all the washi tapes. You've captured some of my favorite themes and colors with the washi. And all wrapped up in handmade paper - so thoughtful. Have a terrific weekend!
Comment: Cool, I don't have any of those cactus tapes! :) I love the bird tape a lot! I've had my user name for 10 years & you're only the second person to ask what my name means..its a book in the bible (zephaniah) that I liked the sound of ;D
Comment: Thank you for the Wordy Washi ;-) YOu have some great choices! I love the one that says, "I Heart Yoga Pants"! I have days like that :-) Thanks also for the stickers... love the one of Penny... never seen BBT stickers ... also love the Japanese Kawaii, and the pigs (I will FW them to my Sis, who loves Pigs!). Thank you for the two extra samples too. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hiya Carly Jo :)
I received your precious envelope today.. there are so many nice things in there.. not at all a bag of trash you silly! I am about to make an attempt to my first junk journal and those things that you sent me will make perfect embellishments!! :) Thank you so much <3
Also I watched a video of that Water Lantern Festival.. that must have been such an amazing experience!! I reckon you both had a fabulous summer holiday! Thank you for sharing your memories :)
Comment: Sept 2019: A little late, but I received the swap from CarlyJo. I want to give her credit for going back and making good on this swap commitment. And it was also a great pocketletter! THANKS for closing out this swap - I wish others would do the same as you :-) :-) :-)
Dec 2015: I emailed CarlyJo about 3 weeks after the end of the swap and did not receive a reply from her. I just sent her another message letting her know that I am rating her a "1", but will change it once I receive the swap. It looks like she hasn't been on swap-bot since the end of October.
Response: I'm so sorry! I'm trying to get ahold of you. I was offline with this swap (and then years later) but will send it or anything else to you to make up for it
Comment: I received my swap today and I absolutely LOVE it!!! These teeth x-rays are just about the coolest thing, especially because I have a soft spot for teeth. <3 The agate made it safely and now has a spot in my collection.
Not only that, but you included extras - thank you so much, sweet soul!
Comment: It is awesome!! Great job! I first thought it read "SMM" my initials and then "arty" as in what an arty girl I am! But I love that you thought up a unique and alphabetical pocket letter. The letter you included with all of the goodies is just fantastic. Great job - I couldn't be happier. Thank you!
Comment: Jan. 9, 2015: I never received this swap. Sent a message on Dec. 29 that is unread (user hasn't logged on since Dec. 15). I hope that you're okay. Will gladly re-rate if I receive this swap. UPDATE: June 30, 2015 - Thank you for re-sending! I like all the kitty items :-) Best wishes to you.
Response: I'm so sorry, I contacted you about this swap. I don't log in regular and when everything was fulfilled I stopped logging in till I had more time and my swapping bug came around again. It's really important to me that you get your swap I hope to hear back.
Comment: Hi Carly Jo I received my ornament yesterday and I LOVED it. I liked how you spelled PEACE with the tiles and they decorated the front. It is cute and very nostalgic of ornaments from the past. Thanks again and I really hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: Hi! I apologize for the late rating, I was unsure which swap this was for, the envelope isn't labeled, so I assumed it was a holiday card swap. :) I just started opening my unlabeled envelopes first so I can rate my partners, and I love what you sent, especially the gold decoration. Thank you! Happy Holidays!
Comment: Thank you very much for the awesome stocking (as per my profile request) full of gifts. I can't decide if i should open them or wait for Christmas! EDIT: ok i caved and opened everything. Each and every item profile perfect! I love everything. The hemp is even in my favourite tones! Mini bowls and bottles!!! Doesn't get any more awesome than this! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness!!!
Comment: There are several things I love about this ATC! Love the way the tags move around, the embellishments sticking out from under the top paper, the fiber, and of course the fabulous envie you tucked it inside. Oh, did I mention the extra's you included? Sweet! Thanks so much for your detail and work on the card! You can tell when someone puts in the effort! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the fabulous Halloween items. You really spoiled me! Love the socks which I have on already. The coasters are really cool and I have them out on the table. I will be making some draw-string bags from the material. Fabulous swap! Hugs, Mona
Comment: LOVE all my Halloween goodies!! Thanks for an awesome swap!! The Mulling Spice & Sugar smell great. What is it used for?
Response: Oh, sorry it's a melting tart. You place them in wax melt containers, can get them at the dollar tree. I should have included one!I am sorry, if you can't get one local to you let me know, I can send you one or we can swap!
Comment: Oh my goodness, where to begin. I absolutely love everything you sent! The cute candy corn is going to be out every Halloween now, and the album is beautiful! I took a peek at your Etsy store, and all of your work is gorgeous, you are very talented! No way I would've ever gotten or made something that awesome without joining this swap. Thank you so much for hosting it and for all of the lovely items! <3 <3 <3 <3 (Wish I could give multiple hearts!!)
Response: I had a blast with your profile, I am so happy that you like everything! Truth be told I liked the candy corn so much I am make no another :p.ty for your kind words
Comment: Sorry for the delay on rating - I got the fabric on Friday, I think. Thanks so much for the great Halloween fabric - I will add it to my stash and some day it will make a fantastic addition to a future project!
Comment: Got the package today, Thank you for the beautiful star for my tree! I can't wait until Christmas.....I'm gonna try to be patient and wait for christmas day. I'll come back after I open my gifts......Thank you for all the fun stuff you sent, so many beads and charms! The clovers will be fun to grow with Benny. Thanks so much! :)
Comment: I really struggled with this rating. I waited about a week to think about it. Here's why: I always have said that if someone notifies me they will be late on or before the due date of a swap, then I will rate full marks. If I'm not notified until after the due date, I always rated a three. Unfortunately you didn't let me know until a couple of days after the due date that you would be late. On the other hand, the Halloween photo brag book you embellished was really cute, and I know that you spent a lot of time on it. So I'm awarding you full marks, even though I'm breaking my own rules. The bad thing about that is I always scold people who do this and then the person gets worse and flakes out eventually. I don't think you are like that, so I'm trusting you to take it seriously and let your partner know if you have to be late in the future, ok? Thanks for a really cute little book!
Comment: I just loved your patriotic inchies! You did a very nice job on them. I attached a small magnet to them and put them on my frig! Thank you for sharing in this swap with me. I look forward to swapping with you again soon. I am headed to Dubois, PA this weekend to visit with relatives. Small world isn't it?
Have a great day! blessings, ellie
Comment: Never found your fanpage like but it is okay. We usually have a wee bit of time to rate but rating you quickly right now. I'm sorry I couldn't find it. No stress. No worries. Be happy and swap on
Comment: Thanks so much for the feedback on my store! I really appreciate it and am glad you like the Holly Hobbie cup. lol I am hoping someone will like it too--it has been listed for about a year now! All of the positivity really helps though--sometimes I just want to give up but I will be able to look at these comments and cheer up :)
Comment: Thank you so much for hosting this lovely swap! Thank you for the Facebook page like. I'm happy you noticed my packaging details - everything Alice in Wonderland! Have a wonderful day. (ï½¡â—•â€¿â€¿â—•ï½¡)
Comment: Thank you so much for hosting this lovely swap! Thank you for the lovely shop comments, too. I am currently working on new items as you know, and hopefully, I can get a lot of new stuff up soon. Have a wonderful day. (ï½¡â—•â€¿â€¿â—•ï½¡)
Comment: Stunning. Brilliant. Gorgeous. Beautiful. PERFECT!
Oh your work is truly ART in every sense of the word.
The package was completely ripped open and it was just the two books dangling out.so if there was anything else in there, it is gone. Thank gawd both book were there. The kids are going to make wonderful memories with these. I know you worked so hard on these. Please know it is deeply appreciated~
Response: how SCARY it is to hear that the package was ripped open! I had my heart skip a beat when I read that, but am super happy to hear that both items are there. Indeed thank god both were there, each one is one of a kind! I hope you love filling up the one with images for your son while he is away, I had tons of fun making it! Thank you so much for letting me!
Comment: I got your package on a day I was feeling particularly blue and it was so nice to find such a thoughtful package in the mail! The "keep it together" package will keep me together and busy! Thank you so much!
Comment: I am thrilled with the envelope book! I just love discovering all the flaps and folds and great embellishments. Now I have to try to resist running out and buying that paper!! Thanks so much for the great swap. Your work is gorgeous.
Comment: Love the paper doll! Her hair is great :) I struggled with that part of mine. Thanks for a great swap!
Response: Wow, this little lady took the long way to get to you. I was scared she got lost and was going to contact you on the 13th. A chorus of angels sang over me when I figured out what to do with her hair LOL. Happy she has a good home now
Comment: What a fun package to open! I can't quite pick a favorite. I am sure that I will use all of this. Things that are standing out in my mind are the stamps, the journaling cards, the album...you made a really lovely package. :-)
Comment: WOW....I don't know what else to say except WOW!!! One of the best swaps I have ever received, not just because of all the beautiful and fabulous goodies, but because of the wonderful letter you sent me. You are a Swapper's Dream!! Thank You so much! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: I had a lot of fun putting the swap together! I love shopping for other people and seeing things I normally would never get. I love talking, or at least not by using my mouth. I never say a thing to anyone but I can type an ear off and not mean too at all! I have been meaning to ask about that paper tape that was in my swap, when it arrived I tore it out of the package and tossed the package. What is the name of it, I ran out and love to use it for cheesecloth, twines, ribbons and what nots. Its the best I have found yet.
Comment: I swear I sent you a message about this yesterday, but it seems that there's no record of it. Weird. I received the Octoberafternoon 9to5 goodies you sent from the Ebay seller. I had to compare the package tracking number on the package with the one you messaged me... But it matched. :) Thank you for the great pieces, I just adore this collection!!! Thanks for swapping with me!
Response: I did ask the seller to add a note, I never get a note to help out my swap partner (lol) even if I ask. None the less they did arrive and I am very happy about that! Thanks for swapping with me as well. Love the stamped images!
Comment: Thanks for the fun package of ATC making goodies. Great stuff - tiny lace, pretty charms, button bling, filmstrip tape! Gorgeous postage stamps! But I must say that pterosaur postage stamp is the coolest . . . thing . . . EVER! Thanks so much! <3<3<3<3<3
Response: When I saw the types of stamps I was able to pass along to you I myself got excited. You really love animals and nature so I ran with that theme and I am happy you are pleased! Enjoy spring planting!
Comment: Love the note card, where did you get it? And the Rolo, Love it. I have a 16 yr old calico...who is queen of the house. I've traveled & lived away from my sister for 40 yrs so when I moved back to Va we had houses built next door to each other...and we just love it. bearnbabs
Comment: I've been looking at my package all morning trying to figure out what to write here. This is such a great package, I loved EVERYTHING in it and I will use everything too! Thank you so much for such a thoughtful package! If there was a way to give more than one heart you would have them. Thank you so much.
Response: I am very happy that you enjoyed your swap! Thanks for hosting it.
Comment: Thanks so much!!! So many lovely new things to play with... We will have so much fun doing our pages.....I did have a few ?s about this swap so sent you a message~Thanks again Carly... always a pleasure!
Comment: Thanks for the swap! I'm sure these were lovely for your wedding. I don't have anything specific in mind for them, but I just loved the look of the lines and am sure I will find a use for them on an ATC, card, chunky, or altered book. :)
Comment: Thank you for the stickers! I havenâ€™t made a scrapbook page featuring my husband and I. The love-related stickers is inspiring me to do one! I like the blue letters â€“ those are always useful. And the spider and skull stickers will be great for Halloween pages. Iâ€™m giving you a heart for your creativity and the nice note you included. Thanks again!
Comment: I'm not the best person to ask for a critique.I had never even heard the term zentangle before swap bot. I know my first one will probably get rated in the dud dept. But yours is spectacular!! And I wouldn't worry about the writing on the back, because, an un-biased eye sees that your design is good from absolutely any direction. Very super!! Thanks.
Comment: I don't check my mail one day and find packages yay! I love your die cuts! Of course I love the Holtz ones and the woodland but my absolute fave has to be the gorgeous white one that says this is the good life. So pretty! Thank you for a great assortment! BTW, fun scratch off!
Comment: Oh my word, you don't know how much you've made my day!! Those are my absolute FAVORITE candies! I've never found tropical starburst here, so this is a treasure! I won't let anyone touch them, lol..thank you so much! :)
Response: I am happy to make your day, I love those candies and was happy to pass on my stash. Hide them from that sweet little baby I seen on your profile, good candies are for the mommies :P
Comment: Thank you for the awesome stickers! A bead sprite is a pixelated image that you use perler fuse-able beads to make into a 3D thingy..idk just google it lol, most of the time people base theirs off of video games, but there are TONS. If you're interested maybe we can trade sometime =)
Response: Thanks for clueing me in, I did google them and it turns out i knew what they were all along! I would love to see photos of your room!
Comment: The gems have arrived! And yes, indeed, between me and my daughter (she likes the 'cool' and the 'bright' colours, and I love the warm jewel tones) we will use up every last one, at some point. Thanks for all your patience in counting out those little stones. Can't wait to see how you like your profile surprise! Hugs, Judith
Comment: Excellent swap hon :) The gems made it here swafe and sounds. I feel like a jeweller with all the bling :) Please let me know when you aer doing this again - I would def want to do another one. And surprise a friend or two with some blinginess :)
Comment: OMG lady I am so sorry it took me a little to rate you ! Leo's 1st birthday was this last weekend so I was caught up in that ! I LOVE the gems !! They are really nice ! Thank you so much for swaping with me !
Comment: Thank you, Carly! You made an ATC just for me and I love it! I love them both! Thanks for swapping with me!
I made an ATC display for my wall next to my desk and now there are FOUR in there. :D
Comment: OMG, this was the nicest package I've gotten since joining! I love absolutely everything you sent and will use most of it on my handmade cards (came just in time) and some will be used on scrapbook pages! Thank you so very much and no worry about the "h" at the end of Debra, some people spell it Deborah and it doesn't bother me. Wish I could give you lots of hearts, but it only allows me to give one! Thanks again and hope to see you in future swaps.
Response: Thank you for that great comment! You boosted my swapping esteem so much! Stick around Debra there are loads of great swappers here, you got lucky and got me early! LOL
Comment: The fabric was beautiful..It will be put to good use..thanks a bunch
Response: Pat I pulled out fabric that I had in my "stash" and it reeked of cigarette smoke. I went out and found some fabric that was seasonal and I thought was lovely and bought it up. I have my fabric "de-cigarette smoke smelling" so if you ever want to trade it fabric again it will come clean from my cedar chest!
Comment: I'm really not an unknown, you had my name and address right.... lolol Thank you for the wonderful stickers....Happy Swapping, and I do beleive I am in one of your swaps... coming right up.... Take care...thank you again, and Happy Swapping... strangers and all....LOLOLOL I am a happy swap botter... Pat
Comment: WoW this is an amazing envelope. I absolutely love all the pennies you sent (especially the oopsie one). What makes this envie so special is your letter, I loved reading the memories these pennies bring. Lakemont Park - your dad working there as a child and meeting your mom. Delgrosso Amusement park and how your mom accidently burned you (my mom accidently burned me as a child too) and Horeshoe Curve with the trains. Now every time I look at these pennies I will think of you and your cute stories! :)
Comment: I really enjoyed your answers. I also really hope that you are able to work as a nurse and help tons of people. Thanx for persisting on sending your responses even though your email was giving you trouble. :]
Comment: Happy Birthday [late!] and Carly is a great name! I have also loved the name Charlie as a girls name too. I was tossing that around for a daughters name in the future.. But, I decided a long time ago my first daughter is going to be Emma Lee [insert last name here ] and if I had another daughter it'd be Bella or Sophie. I wanted this since I was about 11. haha. I'll just have to have 4 girls. :P Emma, Bella, Sophie and Charlie! hahaha. oh my. 4 girls. nooo thank you! :D
Comment: OMG! Thank you so much for all the great memos and sticker sheets. It was much more than I expected to receive. You are an awesome swap partner and I hope to return the favor real soon. :) And by the way, I didn't already have any of them! So they were all new additions to my collection. :) You totally made my day. Thanks again, Erin
Comment: WOW! How wonderful it was to get the envie of goodies! I just love the stickers you sent to me and the deco tape is fabulous! Thank you for the extras!!!! I would say that this definitely exceeds all of my expectations! Thank you soooo very much!!!!!
Comment: What a great package for my niece. It was far more stuff than I imagined. Great cute items. It was such a special touch (and a labour of love) to sort and label everything for us. I enjoyed looking through all the cuties myself and can't wait to hear the river of gushing that I will hear when the recipient receives her boon. I would gladly swap with you anytime, Carly Jo! Thank you so very very much!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great kawaii package Carly! All the pandas you found are adorable! <3 I love them all. Super fun swap!
Response: OH i am very happy you got it. I was warned by a friend that the package may be stolen, because of the decoration....
A huge relief that it arrived! I normaly do not package my items in boxes...or tissue wrap, but i just wanted a bit of extra fun :)
Comment: love love love love everything that you sent!!!! thank you so much! all those memos and lettersets and stickers and decotape and earsers lol! thank you so much!! if you want more felt then please dont hesitate to swap again with me :D thank you once again!!
Comment: AAHHH I LOVE IT!!!! heehee... you sent sooo much clover!!! Soo awesome :] Thanks for taking the time to specifically choose things you thought I would love, because I do! I really really enjoy all of it :D
Response: All i can really say to this is...Ilove2makesmiles!
Comment: Thank you soo much for everything! I really love everything and how you took the time to cater to my profile! Super sweet of you. =) I love my Love Tomo<333 lol. I found a book with more felt mascots and it was quite expensive than I thought. lol but it's totally cool. I'll most likely send your package by next week! Thanks again!^^
Response: This was a great swap, i have made some things from those books! They are really easy to follow, and great for a beginner like me! After a while i should try to venture from those easy patterns and make my own!
Comment: Omgosh, sorry for rating a couple days late! I was swamped with school/essays :(
I received your package on Friday and I loved everything!!! Thank you for the extras, and the tofu memo is super adorable!! :D I love how it says "keep below 5 degrees" LOL
Response: I never seen that! that is adorable. And no worries about rating late, school comes first! Ty for the great swap!
Comment: Thank you soooo much!!! I love it all and you put such lovely packages together!!! My husband brought it to me while I was in the hospital the first day-- the day Ezra was born and it was like a little celebration!!! Thank you!
Response: SCREAMS BABY!!!...BABY!!! congratulations!!! That was a fine day indeed!
Comment: OMG!!!! You are amazing and so generous! Thank you for my package and the note!!!! It's awesome to have a new friend on here!!! :) Very cute and very Kawaii!!!! I have something to aspire to now for my future swaps!!! Thank you!
Comment: Funny story, could almost picture them. Unfortunately none of the links worked for me, that's why the rating's so late, I had to wait until after Karneval to try again...still no luck. Great effort, thanks!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your answers. Thank you for sending them so quickly. My favorite question was "Why does the caged bird sing..?" I was most interested in the answers that everyone came up with. I look forward to swapping with you again. Have a great day! -Beth
Comment: I love my wreck-able journal! You had so many great creative ideas. I can't wait to do them all (although some will be challenging!). You obviously put a lot of thought into this. And one of these days, you'll get it back, all wrecked... ;)
Response: I am really excited! this is probably the best swap i have ever been in! it was fun for me and will be more fun for you....THEN it will be fun for me to get it back....lol TONS of fun.
Comment: If i could give you 10 hearts I would!. this was the best story. I forwarded it on to a bunch of my friends who were all laughing hysterically. The dancing hamsters was such a great idea. Who could be mad about not receiving a swap especially for dancing hamsters!
Comment: thanks so much for all the answers to the questions and the bonus question.
remember...people who dont like us for what we look like arent worth having as friends.
I know acne is hard...but i am willing to be your friend with or without it. you are beautiful in every single way!!!!
Comment: I really did love your awesome memo paper. I would have LOVED to use them... BUT my baby sister seems to love them too. She has been using them. She gave me 2... Which were already written on LOL Have a great weekend! â™¥
Comment: Wow! Simon thought your hamsters had talent! You know that's almost unbelievable!...but I believe you! Don't worry about the swap....maybe I can send you soem cash to help with your legal case...just lemme know :)
Response: legal case will take forever, just make check out to pay me tons!! thanks for the extra effort of fixing the ratings!
Comment: I can tell you put a lot of effort into it:) Not bad for a 1st try:) Keep at it:)
Response: i did try i had this great huge scene in my mind, when i placed the stickers and memos i was like wow is this bland! i didnt want to cover the back to show i used a card, and i was not sure if i should have sealed the front. Thanks for your nice rating, i may try if there are more beginners, but i my need to wait untill inspiration strikes! Ty again
Comment: Thank you for the nice envelope with penguins, very thoughtful!
Response: I'm not the most creative person (hehe true) but i can read profiles and decorate to liking! You sound very interesting! Gotta love guineas, the best little (wow some get big) animals! cannot wait to have one when i get a home of my own!
I really enjoyed reading about you. I know that we all have struggles in our life and you have mastered to go above them, not everyone can do that. I am glad that you are still here! You are an amazing inspiration to a lot of people out there. Keep it up!
