Comment: Collette, this is such a lovely card ... the robin is so sweet and I never tire of a bookpage background.. the tiny flowers added a lot .. I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful brads I love to use the and these are so great.. thanks so much for all!
Response: I am glad you liked the ATC! I love brads, too!!
Comment: Hi Collette, I love your ATC with the big dramatic bee. Very fun😊Great idea to send me the postage stamps, I'm always looking for stamps to use on projects. I'll make good use of those. Thanks again!
Response: Great; glad to hear you liked it & I am glad to hear that you'll be able to put the stamps to good use. I collect them but never end up using them!!
Comment: Thanks for the letter Collette! Would have loved if you'd done a wee intro paragraph just so I could get a sense of who you are before I read your truths, but perhaps that's just personal preference
Response: Oh, I didn't even think about that. This was one of the very first questions swaps I've ever signed up for so I'll try to keep that in mind if I do another one again; thanks for the rating=)
Comment: This will be a good one. I'm looking forward to adding to it, and won't you be excited to get it home one day! I liked your decorated envelope, too. Thanks!
Response: Well, this is my very first Pass & Paste so I was really nervous. I've never done anything like this before so I am really looking forward to seeing the final results... Thanks for your contribution!!
Comment: Oh my goodness! How awesome this Dragon 🐉 is!! I love it! I like how you did the red paper behind him, it looks like what I think Dragon skin looks like. So cool, he/she is a very regal creature and you did a marvelous job with it. I’m very happy to add it with my other Dragon ATC’s in my collection. Thank you very much, it’s beautiful! ❤️
Response: Thank you so much!! I was really hesitant to do it since I've never done a dragon before. I am so glad that you like him; thank you for the heart/rating=)
Comment: Thanks for the Destash! I don't use many wooden stamps anymore because I like the clear ones better but you sent so many new ink pads! I love that I have such a variety in colors now! Thank you :) happy Swapping!
Response: Maggie, YOu can always take the rubber stamps off of the wood & use clear blocks to put them on. Just a though=) Happy swapping to you, too!!
Comment: Whoo-hoo!! I hit the jackpot when the bot made you my partner. 10 stars to you for an incredible box of goodies for me, goodies to share with my scrapbook group (we go on our annual retreat this weekend!), AND goodies to share with two fellow swappers. There were items in the box that exactly matched the wants of my partners in two swaps with send-by dates later this month. Woot! Woot!
Response: Wow! I am really happy that you are able to put some of the things in the box to good use! I wasn't sure if you did rubber stamps or not so I am glad to hear a few will be living with you from now on=)
Comment: Wow Collette, what a great swap!!! The peacock atc is so cool and you were so nice to send peacock stickers and the rubber stamps. I had been wishing for some flower rubber stamps and they appeared from you!
Response: Happy to hear you like the peacock ATC; I was worried about it. I am sure that you will put the other things to good use=)
Comment: Collette, I apologize from the bottom of my heart for the late rating. Your ATC is ah-mazing, and I have it on my inspiration board, where I can admire it every day. Thank you so much for being a great swap partner!
Response: Awww Thank you, Donetta! I enjoyed making that ATC. I love the older photos.
Comment: My son and his wife moved to Renton and we visited last Thanksgiving so I've visited Fred Meyers. I have to admit I didn't see their shopping bags but they did have some crazy X-mas sweaters on display! I love pineapple so the bag was a good match! thanks!
Response: Glad you liked it; I was going for the sewing theme but guess it wasn't meant to be=)
Comment: I just had one of the longest workdays ever and set a new record for most pts done in a day. I came home exhausted. I also came home to this lovely package! It made my day! You are very generous and a great big huge thank you for the wonderful gift! 😁
Response: Awww Sorry you had that kind of day but glad you liked everything!!
Comment: Oh thank you so much for a lovely atc with a very cute bear full of clovers just lover it. The atc well be going in my special bear book. And thank you for the bear post card too take care
Response: Believe it or not; that bear is off a card I got for my hubby for St Patty's Day. I asked him if I could have it back for a project!!=) He said, "Yes". That is okay because he bought me the same exact card!! Great minds think alike=)
Comment: Collette, thank you so much for this lovely and uplifting ATC...I agree that we should all be kind, and practice love with a beautiful smile. Thank you also for the beautiful blue trim...you know I'll have a use for it right away!
Response: Donetta, So glad you liked it!! I know, I just love that trim; can't remember where I got it from, though. I think Amazon.com. Thank you for the heart/rating=)
Comment: Collette, what a wonderful mini pocket letter you sent with all the things I love. Your atcs are great, since I enjoy baking! You are so nice to send me a long letter too. It all made me happy!
Response: Wow! That got there fast!! I am so delighted that you liked the atcs. I have been a long time lover of kewpies & thought a baking theme would be a little harder to do but the kewpies sure worked out well for that. So glad you like them!!
Comment: This is a new update...as of Friday 2-22-19. We have communicated and worked thru this matter.
Colette...I never received anything from you for this swap. When I do... I will re-rate you accordingly.
This is an update on 2-16-19 to my original post here. I received your message. This is not a retaliatory rating. You say it was delivered to my PO Box on 2-1-19. I will check with the Post Office on Monday to see where the delivery went but I did not get it. You should really be careful about things you say and accusations you make!
Response: This is a retaliatory rating as tracking shows the package arrived at her P O Box on February 1st. Update: 2/22/19 Package sent on 1/26 & arrived at partner's P O on 2/1.
Comment: Hi Collette. Thank you so much for all the great items you sent for this swap. I’m a sock person, so I appreciate the cute pair that you sent. I absolutely adore the vintage valentine card. Thanks again for the happy mail.
Response: So glad you liked the things I sent. I know, those Valentines are the coolest I've seen in a long time. Thanks for the heart/rating=)
Comment: So sorry I didn't ck into this swap and rate you, my bad, normally I ck swap bot every other day or so,so accept my apologies for not rating you.. You deserve more hearts. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thanks Sue
Response: Thank you for letting me know; I was so worried but am glad to hear that it got there just fine=)
Comment: LOL...that ceramic doll arm sure has been making the rounds :) I got back that and a few other things that I sent out that were sent to me in previous swaps, so I guess these destash swaps have run their course. But l can use some of the things you sent that were new to me, especially the yarn. Did you make the stuffed critter? Thank you for swapping :)
Response: Ha Ha Ha That doll arm kind of shocked me at first but if I was in to assemblage it would be a great piece!! I think I might have kept a few things that you added in like a fly swatter & some hand held fans. They will work great for this summer. No, I didn't make the fox & I almost kept it for my ferrets but they would chew the eyeballs off & swallow them so I decided to send him on. Happy Swapping to you, too=)
Comment: Hello birthday twin, you and I are, also, similar "old fuddy duddies" doing the same thing every New Year and not making resolutions. Apple cider vinegar? Does serving it in pretty glasses improve the flavor. It must be an old tradition like we all have. I enjoyed your pretty card - HAPPY NEW YEAR
Response: Oh, no, we don't drink apple cider vinegar!!?? Did I actually write that? I meant just apple cider. Hope the New Year is treating you good=)
Comment: Hi Collette! Thank you for the sweet little llama card and for sharing a bit about you through your answers. I loved your story about the Barbie head. I bought 2 pink poinsettias today at Aldi for $1.75 each; I love the pink ones, too!
Response: Yes, that Barbie doll head meant a lot to me. Ha Ha Ha That is great that you bought some pink poinsettias=) They really are pretty & seem so shabby chic, too...
Comment: This swap was in the bunch of mail I picked up thank you for the lovely card and hot chocolate wish I could give you more than a heart
Response: Oh, good!! I am so glad it made it safely there. You'll have to let me know how the hot chocolate is as I bought a couple extra for me, too, but have not tried them out yet. I just loved the packaging=) Ha Ha Ha Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Hi Collette . . . thanks so much for the lovely playing card journal spots. I really enjoyed them both but am especially fond of the one with the die-cut pinecone & branch--so pretty!
Response: Oh, so glad you liked them, Isabella!! I was so nervous about making them; wasn't even sure if I did them right but I used that pine cone die cut once & then immediately forgot what I did with the die!! I still don't know where it is at...
Comment: Collette...you are officially the first Christmas card I have received!! Thank you for the great swap and the awesome items you chose to send me that I will definitely be able to use! May your holidays be Merry and Bright with wishes for you to enjoy, peace, joy, health and warmth...hugs, Charlene
Response: Wow! I feel honored=) So glad you liked the items. Wishing you & yours a Happy Holiday season, too!!
Comment: November greetings & thank you kindly for the Thanksgiving card, the neat postage stamps, die cuts,& all extras that you included. The card went up on my mantle for decorations 🦃
p.s. I just read the book 1105 Yakima St by Debbie Macomber. You reminded me of the book when I saw your street addy
Response: You are welcome=) Oh, how odd! I've never heard of that book before & I am surprised that no one has ever mentioned it to me. I may have to get it & check it out!! She is so popular. Happy holidays to you & yours....
Comment: You obviously read my profile because you sent me 2 beautiful hummingbird postcards💜 That was very thoughtful and much appreciated. Thank you for the lovely Christmas card as well. Merry Christmas to you and yours🎄
Response: Yes, I did=) Thought it would be nice to send something fun. Thank you & Happy Holidays to you & yours, also!
Comment: Thank you for the teas - I never knew there was a probiotic tea. I use essential oils all the time and love sharing how they can help with others. It's nice to find another ABBA fan. My cousins visited the ABBA museum in Sweden yesterday and I was so jealous! Thank you again for the nice Christmas card and tea.
Response: I know, that was a new one for me, too. I guess there is a tea for just about everything!! Maybe you can give me some helpful tips on the Essential Oils. I am just starting to learn about them. Every time an ABBA tribute comes to town I just have to go see them. Drives my hubby up the wall=) Happy holidays to you & yours!!
Comment: I really like this PL ! Its so good to get one that doesn't have a bunch of skulls and skeletons. I love Winnie the Pooh and vintage images with children. And thanks for the goodies in the back pockets. I put the magnetized images up on my fridge right away. Oh, and the glittery pumpkins and orange netting ~ fun, fun fun!!!
Response: So glad you liked it; thank you for the heart/rating=) Well, I made sure I double - triple checked your Profile. Good thing I did, too!! I am not really into skulls/skeletons, either. Nice to get to swap with someone in the same "neighborhood"!
Comment: Thank you for the black cat ATC - the textured handmade paper background works so well along with the text page to showcase the spooky cat. Also so nice of you to send all the postage stamps and the fantastic postcards - many thanks!
Response: Thank you; glad you liked the ATC & extras. Thank you for the rating & heart=)
Comment: This card is SO cute!!! Congrats on your 20th anniversary! I hope y'all have a great time celebrating. Thank you soooo much for the *awesome* stamp, washi tape, and stickers. I will definitely get use out of these!
Response: Thank you very much! Glad you liked everything; hope your Halloween is a good one=)
Comment: Hi! I´m so happy and surprised to meet you here, it REALLY is a small world :)! And of course I remember you from AFA, we´ve done so many great swaps together. Thank you so much for the generous sending of yours. The ATC is wonderful and love all the bits and pieces + the sweet Halloween dalmatian-card. Hope to see you in future swaps :)!
Response: Hi Pikkis=) So glad that you liked everything. I know you probably don't celebrate Halloween much in your country but thought you might enjoy getting a Halloween card, too! Yes, I look forward to future swaps with you, too!! Good to see you here...
Comment: Thank you for the fun package. The hat is not my usual style, but it looks good on me Thanks for bringing me to try something new.
Response: Hi. I am sorry; I looked for a derby hat & a big tea cup but they had none to be found. It sounds like you are the type person that most hats will look good on you=) I have a big head so that doesn't apply to me.....
Comment: Thanks for the great card and the goodies! Love the stickers and washi! Happy anniversary you you and the hubby! I don't get t&t-ers here, even though I live in an apartment complex. There aren't many kids here, and they must go elsewhere. Have a great day and happy swapping to you.....
Response: Thank you; it hardly seems like it has been 20 years! Happy to hear that you liked everything. Thank you for the heart & the rating=) Happy Halloween to you!
Comment: Collette! Your wine flipbook made my heart so happy! I have been having rough days at work, and when I opened it at the end of the day yesterday, I just melted. Excellent job! Let me know when you are ready for another private swap, I am game! Happy swapping my friend!
Response: Oh, Carrie! I was so glad to hear that the book met with your approval=) I was just about chewing my fingernails (and I don't do that because they are not food!!) to hear back from you. I am going to be sending you some papers & other ephemera that I didn't use as you can use them for other wine swaps when you do them. Sure, we can do another swap; let me know what you would like to do & we can work something out. So glad you liked it!!
Comment: What a cute way to decorate a envelope, I will try to do that next time I send one.I love the additions you put inside, I am going to share the little pumpkin pin with my daughter, she works I rehab at local hospital, the patients always look for her happy face, she is a ray of sunshine so it will look cute on her blouse. Thank you so much. Marcia
Response: I am glad you liked everything; thank you for the heart & rating=)
Comment: .wow I'd give you 100 starts if I could!! thanks so much for my teddy bear items!!! The pillow is already on my bed!! My shops never have stuff that nice. The rams is so darn cute!! You made my day with such a sweet package!!
Response: I know, I lucked out. So glad that everything was to your liking; thanks for the rating & the heart=)
Comment: Thanks so much for the cute puppy Halloween card. I LOVE the homemade envelopes. Its inspired me to make my own. I foresee a trip to the craft store in my future! Thanks for the washi too. I didnt have any for winter yet 😁
Response: Happy that you are happy=) Those envelopes are so easy to make; aren't they just cool? Thanks for the heart & rating...
Comment: Hi Collette - thank you for the Halloween card! So thoughtful of you to include the envelopes that will definitely come in handy for the cards I have been making! I love the postcards too! :)
Response: You're welcome=) I have so much fun making those envelopes & they are so easy to do. Sorry the post card wasn't more state themed; I have a hard time finding post cards around here, anymore...
Comment: This was the first swap package I received and you did a really good job picking things out for me - definitely fitting to my profile and still creative. That red ribbon! I like it and I wouldn't have even thought to pick something like that out. And the gel pen and the washi and on and on. It was like Christmas. Thanks for such a great start to my swap experience!
Response: Awesome; so glad you are enjoying the things I picked out for you=) Thanks for the nice comments & the heart!!
