Comment: I love your Magpie Journal, Michelle! Love all the little pockets you have added and the extras you included! Love all the different papers you have used and the embellishments! Thank you for a wonderful addition to my journal collection!!
Comment: What an amazing package! I absolutely love everything and love your presentation. Thank you for all the perfect "swap" items. Did you embellish the bags? Is that a form of mod podge? All very cool. I appreciate the time you took to make this such a special package 💛💜💚
Comment: Hi Michelle! I love your butterfly pc - so colorful and pretty! The weather has been way too wet here, lots of flooding in the areas around us - thankfully we are up on a bluff so we are ok but it so reminds me of the flooding from 1993 - praying it does not get that bad, but it sounds like it might - sigh! Hope you had fun at the wedding and a fun Memorial Day! We were with family in FL, so ours was wonderful! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I really love the beautifully decorated envelope you sent. And of course, all the fun stuff inside. I never knew how to send washi tape until I joined this swap. A-ha! Thank you so much for everything.

Comment: Hopeful this fixes everything. And sorry for the u
Misunderstanding I'm new and didn't know . but thank you . how do I get back In groups now ?
Response: Wait a minute. I have screenshots of ALL our convos, including ME reaching out to you to see if you’d received my swap yet since I hadn’t been rated. You said no, then asked what address I’d mailed it to and said you thought the swap had been returned. I told you I used whatever address you had on file when partners were assigned and asked you “Why? Did you move?” and you didn’t say one way or the other. I actually resent the swap to you yesterday, before you rated me.
Update- This swapper messaged me 3/27 and said this rating was a misunderstanding but she can’t change the rating. I offered instructions on changing it.
Comment: So sorry for the super late rating. The card came while I was visiting family out of state and then it got hidden in my desk! Thanks for the sweet card & extras! It was a little Christmas in March surprise!
Comment: Thank you Michelle for the awesome note cards and for sure can use them! Also, thank you for cute bookmark. I want it was actually spring here! It doesn't even act like it, like usual ! Will get more snow here before we do get a spring like weather. We always do !
Comment: I absolutely LOVE what you did on your Altered playing cards and thanks so much for trying to do them!! just one little thing...the imagery is supposed to be on the side with the numbers and diamonds etc. the rule for altered playing cards is that at least one number and its suite must show in one of the corners. I truly do love these and will put them into my collection! thank you VERY much! (the tail is my favorite!!!)
Response: Thank you so much for the instructions! Even though I didn't know what I was doing, I had fun. HA!
Comment: Michelle! I received my envie today and it is sooooooooooooooooo cute!! I'm inspired now with your washi and doily technique to try this on some of my envelopes!!!! Thank you! The Spring stickers are SO stinking pretty! I can't wait either and it's warmer here than there!! Still, ready for warm breezes!!
Response: Yay!! I'm so happy that you liked the swap! Thank you for the rating and heart!

Comment: Thank you for trying to wipe the glitter off the front of this card. I like the look of glitter, I just don't like the mess. So, it was very sweet of you to try to wipe as much off as possible.
Comment: Thank you for resending for this swap. You really outdid yourself. Thank you for all the extras. I especially like the doll cards. I might frame them and put them in my sewing room. You made my day. Oh, you don’t need to send me an Indianapolis postcard, you’ve sent more than enough extras. Hope you have a great new year.

Comment: Thank you for the resend. Mail in the mountains can get wonky.
Mt. Airy is up on Roan Mtn., and about 8-9 miles down to Bakersville. I just hiked Linville Falls in Sept of this year. Beautiful.
If you ever get this way again, look me up, that would be fun. Merry Christmas.

Comment: Thanks for the card and goodies!!
I was born in Maine and lived there for 27 years, so when I moved to Florida, it took some getting used to. It's not the same at Christmas, but I'm okay with it! I LOVE my flip-flops! LOL!
Thanks so much for your card and including the recipe! I just might try it. To answer you question no, I did not sell any pumpkins, though I probably should have. I actually ended up with 263! I gave away tons though, at least 175 :)

Comment: Lovely card. Thank you for adding to my "wall of cheer." And thank you for the extra washi. Very pretty. I really like the washi that is on the front of the envelope. The whole envelope looks so cheerfully Christmas.
Comment: Thank you! Unfortunately, you forgot to write the name of the swap on the outside of the envelope, so I was a bit disappointed that I opened it.
11-11-18 - WOW! Thank you for the resend. I wasn't expecting that since I didn't rate down. Very kind of you to do that. I upgraded your rating with a heart. <3
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card and wishes. I love the extras and I have no idea why, but when I only opened the envie I felt some sweet smell from the inside ;) Christmas washi is amazing. Never enough of it in my stash!
Comment: Hi, Michelle, just got your lovely sparkly Christmas card! I do remember you from last year...I just found your card from last year in my penpal journal! So fun to talk to someone who’s lived here in this area. I’m a native to East Tennessee but love living in Blount County😁! Thank you so much for the little baggies of goodies, especially the used stamps! Have a wonderful holiday season! 🎃🦃🎄❄️🎅🏼🎁
Comment: Michelle, thank you so much for the wonderful magpie journal!!! I love all the different papers that you used to create your pages, and each of your quote pages has such a nice layout with just the right touches! I laughed when I read the quote about "Important Family History research in progress" with the request for coffee and sweets! And the one about the fine line between packrat and family historian. It was also clever the way you included some longer quotes folded into the decoration on some of the pages. Beautiful job and I thank you for all the creative energy and time you put into it to make it so special!!!
Comment: What a cute swap, packaged so neatly I didn't want to open it! It was neat to admire! The stamp you used was so neat! I never saw them before! Is it new ones? Thank you so much for a nice swap!

Response: I'm SO happy you like the journal! I had a lot of fun making it. The colors were fun to work with during the drab winter weather! Thank you for the kind rating.

Comment: Thank you Michelle for the post card and washi tape I love the tiger striped and the orange with the cats. No I don't do anything for Valentine's Day its just another day to me. I generally have to work.
Comment: If only I could give more hearts!
You did an amazing job on this pocket letter! Everything about it made me smile! I can tell you put a lot of love and time into creating it for me, and I appreciate that so much!
Thank you very much!
Please forgive my late rating. The flu hit our home and this was the worst we have ever had, now my other health issue... I had wrote this rating a couple days after you wrote to me... like a ding dong (pain will do that) I never hit send. Duh!!!
VERY Sorry :(
Comment: Wow! What a beautiful well put together swap! I'd never seen anything like the book you made before and definitely plan on making something similar sometime. ðŸ˜Š Thank you for all the wonderful enclosures and I am excited to use everything, especially the personalized items. I love to craft with used stamps and you were so generous on the amount you sent. They're all "new" to me and I greatly enjoyed your letter! I'll be writing you back and will try to do so next week. I hearby shower you with â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸!
Comment: Michelle, thank you so much for the wonderful envelope of BLUE! I love the stickers and the tiny little blue tags! The postcard was a beautiful addition to the blue theme, and that sweet dotted ribbon is already stirring my creative juices. I'm a stamp collector from way back in my childhood so the stamps were especially fun to discover. Thank you so much for a great swap!!
Comment: Thanks for the stamps and cute supplies! Just to let you know, the bottom of the envelope was half ripped open. I don't think anything fell out, because there were definitely more than fifteen suplies in there.
Comment: Wow - THANK YOU! This is a fantastic Pocket Letter - I just love all the detailed little adornments you did. I kind of don't want to take anything out of it because it seems like everything just adds awesome layers of texture to each pocket and works with the theme so well. This is gorgeous - I love the colors, everything. Perfect.
Response: Iâ€™m so glad you like it!!! Thank you for the kind words!!

Comment: Thank you, the doll postcards are wonderful you must order them online because I donâ€™t see them in stores around here, but then I donâ€™t see postcards around here anymore.

I really like how there's a little something for everyone (all different styles). I actually have a book by the lady who does the botanical illustrations/journaling-- I didn't know she made cards, too :) The notepad will be perfect to keep in my purse (I take notes all the time when I go shopping). Thanks again for a very generous and thoughtful swap. â™¥
Comment: Greetings and thank you for joining my swap. I appreciate you sending a little love to my nephew. The week prior to receiving some cards he was telling his mom how no one loved him and how sad and depressed he was. Needless to say he was totally delighted with all the cards and well wishes he received and is still receiving. He was just so happy.
Thank you again for caring!
Comment: Thanks for the great variety. I especially loved the little hedge hog stickers. There are a lot of stickers I've never seen before, and I shared the Hello Kitty ones with my mom. Thanks for the nice packaging, too. Sorry the ones I sent to you were loose, as soon as it was all sealed up and ready to mail I thought "hmm, I probably should have put those in an envelope." Thank you again!!

Comment: Thanks for the postcard! I lived in Indiana for about 9 months. I lived in a tiny town called Seymour (down south). I looked and didn't see it on the card but I'm not surprised. It was a VERY small and VERY weird town!
Response: That's too funny! We go to Seymour occasionally! lol Tell me what makes it a weird town to you. lol
Comment: WoW! Thank you for ALL of the stickers and for the kind words. They really mean a lot to me.
I see that you take sticker bags. We should set up a swap some time. I have some I need to get moving a lot. Some of these poor bags have been sitting in someone's house for like 2 years before *I* got them. I HATE that people don't get their bags back!!!
Comment: Thankyou for sending the ?. rotfl The envie was pretty. :) ~~Edited....PS I think this second one is my fav of the two. lol Thankyou for the neat decoration pen, I can hardly wait to try it. :)
Response: You are welcome for the pen! I got one too but I haven't tried mine yet. Hope they work great!
Comment: LOVE bags as much as I LOVE tape, lol, and you found owls, how unique! I liked the epoxy brads and buttons too! And a laffy taffy for me and one for my little friend. You could have put those in the sticky swap. haha
Response: Yes!! I found both types of bags at Target. You know I loved those owl bags! lol Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: OK Sooooo here is the deal. I love what I could see, but have not unwrapped yet the rest. Waiting til Christmas. The wrapping paper with the buttons earned a heart already though. ~K UNWRAPPED----This is cool, loved the basket of piggy paper and those swap cards are so special to me. Thankyou for everything. Love it and Love you. :)
Response: So glad you liked the swap cards! I know that's kind of personal, so hoped I could make something you'd like. :)
Comment: O M Garsh! I love the labels, esp the ones with measuring spoons and bowls. I have this weird fettish and one of my fav all time miniatures I have are these tinier than tiny could be tiny measuring spoons. lol
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcards, little card decorations, and the little book. I saw that old movie "The Hiding Place" recently. The Lord has been teaching me about the power of forgiveness. I'm looking forward to reading the book "Bay Island" that you sent.
Response: You're very welcome! Thank you so much for the rating! :)
Comment: Loved the SB's thank you so so very much.....Michelle. I am going to continue to have more fun with these..... thank you for the wonderful stickers...loved those too! Hugs for you and Happy Swapping...Pat
Comment: I accidentally rated a silly-fun swap as this one, I do not think that matters though. You really stuffed this envie. Neat baggie of goodies, cute cards, and there were even icecream cones in here. ha Thankyou!
Comment: Thank you! I love the note cards. Thank you for all the extras & the stickers too. There was such a great variety. I will enjoy using them. The recipe card is pretty. I had an amazing mail day thanks to you. It made me smile. Thank you. :)
Comment: Thanks, Michelle for the great stickers! I actually have blank address labels that match the flower stickers (cool, huh?). If you'd like a sheet or two or three, let me know. My favorite stickers are the "praise" owl and the "amen" turtle!!!! Love them all though! Thanks for the extras!
Response: Ooo I have those labels too! Well, I used to! lol They are so pretty!! Didn't Hallmark make those?
Comment: ahahaha LMAO! lady, AFTER i got done passing out just like your note warned me about, i had a blast going through that massive heap of SBs in that killer box of SBs and stickers you sent me. LOVE YA!! and thank you!!!!
Response: I thought well, she'll either love me or hate me!!! That's over 2 pounds of SB's! LOL I have at least that many more to send on still! LOL Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: Thank you for the journal, notecards, photos and ephemera! I had so much fun looking at all of the old photos. I love the one of the parade float and of the one that looks like an old fashioned talent show! Thank you for your generosity!!! xo
Response: So happy you liked your package! If you ever need more black and white photos, just give me a yell. I have bags of them! LOL Thank you for the 5 and heart! Blessings to you!
Comment: Thankyou!! You are speedy! And.....U were right, lol, there was a postal message stamped on it that said, "Received unsealed at Helena, MT" lol,it looked all to be there though. :) I enjoy your swaps!
Comment: Thank you so much for the package of goodies!! Sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Response: Thank you so much for the sweet rating, for your kindness and understanding and your thoughts and prayers. =) I was able to pass on your kindness to someone else here on Swap Bot yesterday who is also facing a tough situation. Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you very much for all the cool stickers! I especially like the glittery Halloween ones and all the fairies! The foil dragons are really cool! There are some really great stickers in this batch! Thanks again!
Response: Awesome! I scoured thru all my stickers trying to find some I thought you'd like! =) Thank you for the 5 and heart!
Comment: Thank you so very much! This was such a treat. The swap cards are beautiful and the first that I had ever had made for me. I loved the whole package!! It's neat that you included a little note about yourself too. That personal touch makes swapping so much more fun.
Comment: Loved your letter and all the goodies you put in it also. I need to look at some of them brochures. My mom was 64 when she passed...My dad was 62..crazy how that all goes...
Response: Thank you for the 5 and the heart! I had picked up those brochures recently and happened to see them on the counter while putting your letter together. I hope they can help you with your grief.
Comment: Thanks a bunch for the comment! :)
I love living in Estonia, but it can be tough too.So some days i wish i could live in Italy or Iceland :)
But whatÂ´s it like living in Indiana? (Always loved that name) :)
Response: Living in Indiana...hmmm...we experience all 4 seasons here. It's very cold in the winter, usually with lots of snow. In the spring, we receive lots of rain. This summer it was terribly hot. Out autumn season is beautiful with all the leaves changing colors. Northern Indiana is flat while southern Indiana is hilly. There us much farm land in Indiana, where farmers usually grow corn, wheat and soybeans. We live outside of Indianapolis, the state capital. It's a great place to live!
Comment: The decos arrived today (May 28)...thanks so much. The note mentioned 'small vintage envelopes', and I could definitely use them; but alas, they were not in the envelope! Not sure what happened there, but I've given you a heart anyway, for good intentions! :)
Response: You are SO right! I found them on my table later! I'm SO sorry! We're in the process of moving, so I'm sure I've packed them up but if not, I'll let you know!
Comment: I just LOVED the stuff you sent - awesome colors and designs. I felt like you TOTALLY knew my profile. Thank you so much!
Just FYI, the envelope arrived open - the stickers used to seal the envelope didn't hold it shut, and it got torn open on the seam (the one that get's licked). I know you've been swapping for awhile now, but maybe you could tape your envelopes? Just so they'll be extra secure? Just a suggestion. :D
Response: Thank goodness the envie didn't arrive empty!! I usually tape my envies but I have a 22 months old daughter who HIDES my tape!! LOL
Comment: Sent me more than 30 stickers but a good number were holiday stickers. Still happy about the swap though, just watch sending the holiday stickers.
Response: Sorry that I missed the No holiday stickers info in the swap! I'm so used to getting and sending holiday stickers in swaps here! I use holiday stickers all year round for projects and love them.
Comment: Hey Michelle, it was really interesting to read about you! Today is the day of adoption. Two of my swap partners told me they were adopted, and now a Mom who adopted! Congratulations! I hope this young girl gets her life on the right path and I hope your life settles down a little! I bet you need a breather!
Comment: Hi Michelle! Thanks for the little introduction of yourself! A lot has happened to you recently with the move and all! It is good that you will be closer to your father-in-law during this difficult time. =) And your little girl Ryleigh is sooo adorable!! You and your husband have huge hearts to be able to adopt and will be great parents!! Wish you well! ^__^
Comment: Gosh, where do I begin? Well, I guess I can start by giving you my deepest thanks for such a wonderful package. While this was a no spending swap, it most certainly didn't feel like it with your package. I truly felt like you spoiled me and I could never thank you enough.
The set of six note cards has such a funky design that I can't help but love them. Oh, and since I'm on the subject of cards, the single blank one is downright gorgeous - not to mention the one you made.
While I do own a lot of fabric, I've never seen nor own the fabric you've given me - until now, of course. I can think of a lot of things to make with it, but I'll be sure to save it for a special project. Such pretty fabric doesn't come around everyday, you know!
The gift tags and photo mats will be extremely useful to me and their designs just can't be beat. I'm in awe as to how beautiful they are.
I love how you added some pieces of ribbon. I use all sorts of ribbon for gift wrapping and am pretty much wrapping a gift everyday for one occasion or another. I actually have a birthday present to wrap for a friend this Friday and the polka dot ribbon will be perfect for it.
While I don't travel a lot, I finally have a luggage tag to put on my duffel bag thanks to you. What a pleasant addition to the package!
And, of course, I love the Cinnamoroll stationary and the magazines you've given me from your state. I've been enjoying them so far and will continue to enjoy them. All in all, your package brightened my day, brought a smile to my face, and I could never thank you enough. You're so sweet!
Comment: Wow! How weird is THIS! I received a bunch of the stickers that I sent to YOU. :) I couldn't possibly hold it against you, because I know we all have a big box or envelope of stickers or papers that just don't suit us. I just realized when I opened it, that I hope I haven't done the same to someone else! :) But thank you for sending this swap out on time, and at least they aren't all the same stickers, there are some new ones! :)
Response: Really? That's weird...most of my stickers from swaps are still in the envies they came in! I have tons of stickers though and almost all that I get in swaps, I already have. Either way, glad they arrived safely! =)
This was such a lovely package! I used the beautiful tote bag/purse to carry some stuff on our trip to Wisconsin this past weekend for a cheerleading competition...the raspberry scented stuff was lovely, I put the diffuser in my bathroom!!
thanks so much again...everything was wonderful!!
--Your swap pal
Comment: Great postcard! Have you ever been to the Indy 500---looks like its organized chaos :)
Response: I have been to the qualification race day, not the actual race. As a child, it was a standard Indiana school field trip to go to the race qualifications. I don't think I've ever been to anything so LOUD. It was incredibly loud!!
Comment: warmly welcomed your map card
was today ~ thank you so much for
reminding me of the nice people,
places & things involved with indiana!
please have patience, as springtime
is sure to come ... keep busy in the
wonderful world of postcards!
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for everything and including a lot of stuff centered around my profile. I've already labeled an envelope going out in the mail tomorrow with one of the custom address labels you made. Great job. Hope to swap with you again in the future!
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm glad you found something in the swap that you liked! =)
Comment: Thank you, Thank you so much for all the cute little stickers. You went above and beyond for me. Great choices and everything.
I love that you sent some stickers that were religious. I'm glad that you share that love with me. My fav is the God made me somebunny special.
I also love Hello Kitty!
Thanks again! You made my heart happy.
Response: You're so welcome!! I'm so glad you liked the stickers! I was happy to have someone to share my religious stickers with, as most people don't want them. =)
