Response: Wow!! So glad you liked what I sent. I never know if I'm sending things that can be used. Thanks for such a lovely rating and heart! Hopefully we will swap again.
Comment: Thank you SO much for the lovely address labels and adorable note cards! :) I really appreciate you taking the time to read my profile ~ Thank you for my goodies, I can't wait to use them both! Happy swapping! 🌸 xoxo
Comment: Thank you for the lovely PC. But the best part was when you wrote "God is faithful"! I'm in a tough financial situation right now (working for a non-profit organization without salary due to funding issues) and it really encouraged me to see that on the PC! Thank you!
Comment: Hi Michelle, Everything you sent was purrfect!! Love it all especially the die cut cats of different colors!! :) LOve the stamped images too. I also love the jams you finished, they turned out great. Thanks for a great swap!!
Comment: Thank you - I'm impressed with your ink and watercolor skills! How kind of you to include teas, too! I would give you a heart, but swap-bot is busted and not letting me give you one. Thanks again!
Comment: I love the swap items you chose for me. Thank you for making the return address labels and I especially like the stamped chicken images. Did you know May 14th is national dance like a chicken day? Smiling here in Oregon.
Comment: Received your inchies and think they are great.
Thanks for joining and stretching into a dimension where you may not have been comfortable. Maybe you will look at things differently now. I have same swap open to US public..not just OSS group. Join if you like.
Comment: Michelle, thank you so much for the nice envelope of happiness that I received! The coffee ATC is wonderful and definitely goes into my 'keeper' album! I love the ribbon you used and the colors you put together on it. And the ocean cutouts will have a place in a future creation for sure. I don't know if I will be able to part with the clownfish note card, but if so, it will have to be for someone pretty special - it's a beautiful picture! Thanks for a great swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely ATC and the pretty papers! I am so looking forward to warmer weather too! I've been busy stocking up on lots of bee and butterfly friendly plants and I just can't wait to play in the garden! =D
Comment: .So sorry for the delay in rating. I was cleaning the storage room and found a box with some magazines and also some swaps
I found your post card in there. Thanks for sending it.
I definitely agree books are the best weapon
Comment: Beautiful! ❤ Thank you so much! 🙂
I have never seen the name spelled like your daughter's. It looks lovely though. 🙂 Mine is the very traditional spelling for German-speaking regions. The "h" is silent in fact, not like a typical English "th".
Comment: Thank you!!!!! I just found this swap. I am so sorry! It had gotten pushed back behind my desk somehow. I absolutely LOVE everything!!! I am so thrilled with the dandelion items and everything. I wish I could give you a million hearts & hugs for this! You have made me incredibly happy!!!!
Comment: wwww... and today I am decorating for Christmas and I love the toilet paper background ATC to add......THANK YOU so MUCH..... many hearts.... thanks for the cute stickers also!!!!! Happy Holidays back atcha.....
Comment: Love you tombstone, and thanks fot the dies cutouts. We have started celebrating Halloween with the kids asking for candy and some people also make their house look scary outside or/and inside
Comment: Thanks for the postcard, Michelle! That's so cool that your daughter goes to Baylor. And I love the "cold Texas" story. It's been really cold (in the 50s) the past week, and one of my students said, "It's too cold to come to school." 😂
Comment: Hi Michelle, thanks for a great choice of coins. No, I didn't have them. I didn't know there was a special quarter for each state, I think that's something I'd like to collect a full set of! :) (So message me if you'd like to get any Australian ones, haha. )
Comment: Love your dictionary page ATC! Wonderful design. Love that die cut haunted house. Will have to find that one. Thank you for a wonderful swap.
Left Carbondale the first of September for my annual move to Florida until June. Hold the fort down up there in Illinois for me.
Response: check out "Wish" they have some great die's that are very cheap and very cool. Enjoy the warmth!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I really love the ATC, I grew up in Montana and apple harvest is definitely part of September, wonderful memories. I love the ATC papers and the clock cut out, wow so cool. Thank you for a wonderful swap.
Comment: Thank you so much! I love both ATCs and the extras are really thoughtful. I can't figure out how you did the grapes themselves? A stencil? Pens? It's a rally cool ATC either way. The house one is really cute, I wouldn't have known the thing was a sticker at all! :) thank you!!
Response: Oh I'm so glad you liked everything. The grapes were a stamp but I hand colored the ink instead of using a pad so it would have various huhs of purple. I'm so glad you liked it. Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Wonderful ATC-I love sunflowers too and they are quite populous in ND. Like how you created the theme thru out the envelope-I don't remember that sunflower stamp-and the nice stamped notecard.Thanks also for the goodies you sent along-love mason jar shapes. Thanks for sharing!
Response: I'm glad you liked it!! Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the joyful Sun with toadstools ATC! I love the extras too especially the paisley paper. Our Summer goes on in California. Even though school is starting, our heat and sunshine continues til Sept. 22-
when Fall begins. Happy Swaps!
Comment: Thanks, Michelle, for all the cute punches/die cuts! They will come in handy. Thanks also for the ATC!
My husband wanted me to tell you that he graduated from Tripoint in Cullom in 1973..He played ball in HS and said that Piper City was always a worthy adversary and he enjoyed playing them! Have a great rest of the summer!
Response: Glad you liked everything. A lot of things have changed since 1973!! He should come check it out sometime. Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome journal cards! I would TOTALLY be up for a private swap for printed journal cards. I know there are some beautiful cards out there but I don't have access to a color printer suitable to printing high quality cards.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful bookmark! As for the recommendations, I have read the Bartimaeus series and I really enjoyed it! I've been on the fence about The Alchemyst for a while but I think I'm going to take the leap and try it after your suggestion! I've never heard of the Fablehaven books but they sound interesting!
Response: I HIGHLY recommend the Fablehaven books they are my next favorite after Harry Potter!!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for a lovely collection of flowers : ) I'm looking forward to seeing real flowers soon~we've been cold, rainy, snowy, and icy over the past week. Yuck : ( Ready for sun and warm weather for sure.
Response: Glad it got there safely!!! It's REALLY cold here. The flowers made me miss the warmth lol...thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: I'm giving you a 5 even though this wasn't sent till the 3rd of November and the swap date was the 31st kinda gotta watch it because some people will rate you a 3... just trying to give you heads up on that hun. let your partner know when you're going to be late
Response: I live in the country and I put it in my drop in mailbox the night of the 31st I didn't know that it didn't get mailed until the 3rd. Thanks for letting me know. I'll start using the mailbox in town instead. Thanks for the heads up.
Comment: Hello there, your bookmarks have arrived.. Thank you! I kinda was expecting just one bookmark like in the swap requirements, so I was a little surprised to see two :) They are pretty and will be going to my sweet grandma who has just gone through surgery. Blessings!
Response: You got those much quicker than I thought you would. I'm glad you liked them..prayers for your sweet grandma.
Comment: Gorgeous, this was my first time receiving something from a swap. I was so excited. It was very pretty paper that I'm sure I will use in the near future. Thank you so much. The envelope was nicely packed.
Response: YAY!! I'm so glad this was your first and you were happy with what I sent!! Happy swapping!!
