Comment: Oh, wow... Such an amazingly special and thoughtful swap! The pincushion is beautiful, and may in fact be too pretty to use. The thought of poking pins into it just doesn't seem right! :/ As for Spike (he looks like a Spike to me), he is one cool dude and now I have my very own sock monkey. :D Also, I'm going to enjoy using the nautical cards you included! Thank you so much for a heart-warming and incredible swap, Wendy! (P.S: I'm definitely up for a private swap - will PM you shortly!)

Comment: Hello again. I've opened your lovely package and am delighted! Love the wide washi and Hello Kitty washi. Beautiiful, elegant rub ons and oh, the classy gold embossed reindeer tag! So many nice treats - thanks again!
Love the fountain pen/ink well stamp set that is perfect for me! Love the pretty way you wrapped my envie! I now have to decide if I will open your wonderful packet on Dec 1 to start my "envie a day" plan -- or will I be able to save yours for Christmas for the big finale? Hope you receive some envies as nice as what you sent! Thanks again.
Comment: Thank you for another delightful swap! I especially love the envelope you made with the textured paper with letters and the one with the fantastic spooky Blythe design! â™¥ So cool! I know the perfect person for that one (besides me). :)

I feel so spoiled!!! :o) Many, many thanks for EVERYTHING! P.S. After I wrote the note above I was studying the items in the box . . . then noticed the box and saw that my address was written on an envelope . . . a stuffed envelope . . . OH MY GOODNESS . . . after everything you already sent, I see you ALSO included a lovely letter (so enjoyed reading . . you really put a lot of time and effort into this swap), a bunch of yummy crockpot recipes, an awesome laundry detergent recipe, a list of fabulous quotes, and a template for an ATC or gift card envelope!!!! I am overwhelmed!!! Again, thank you, thank you, thank you! P.P.S. Totally forgot to thank you for the Twix! I forgot about it because I ate it. :o) I tried to hide it from myself in the refrigerator but it didn't last an hour. I haven't had one in ages and it was sooo yummy!
Comment: Wendy! Your package came today and my daughter was ecstatic with the mail art! She looked at it all and asked "how does she know me so well?" LOL She loves the stuff inside too! Thank you so much! You really made her day!
Comment: We're partners again! I LOVE all the recipes and cards that you sent me. Several of these recipes, including the hashbrown casserole and strawberry pie, have gone into my "must try immediately" pile. Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you for the great recipes! I have seen the 40 clove garlic chicken recipe, but thought it would be too garlicky. I'm glad you have tried it and liked it very much. I will definitely try that one soon! Great recipes!
Comment: Easy chocolate candy recipes! What a treat! Beans-refried- you must have read my profile- TexMex is like going home. I think I will try this one-It will be a nice change from Rosalita's in a can!
Comment: Yeah! I finally got an ATC from you. I love it. As you know I do love steampunk. Well I hope your pick for Hell's Kitchen won. My pick did. I am also a night owl. Always up til 2am myself! Thank you also for the beautiful papers.
Comment: Wendy, I loved reading your responses to the questions. I learned so much about you and also that we have a lot in common! I'm going to try to find you on Goodreads and send you a friend request, if that's alright. Also, my first declared major was culinary arts ;-) (I'm an Accountant now though, hahaha)
Response: Definitely! :) Sounds like we need to swap some recipes as well. Even though you crossed over to the accounting side- LOL
Comment: Thank you so much for doing this swap with me. I love everything! The envelopes you used, the textures you used, the cards aren't fantastic! And GUMBY.. YAY!!! And the embossing folder wow! Many many many hearts for you! Thanks again! :)
Response: You are very welcome. I appreciate all you do for SB. I'm glad you liked Gumby, I was LOL when I made him.
Comment: Thanks so much for the recipes and helpful cooking tips! I love the way you did your recipe cards - I am going to have to figure out a craftier way to do mine now that I see how lovely yours are. :) You're right - we do have a lot in common, and I LOVE your pinterest page!
Response: Yipee! I'm so glad you liked. I love Pinterest- addicted. :)
Comment: Wendy â€¦ Very cute envelope, Iâ€™ve always liked stars. I LOVE IT!! Your flag atc with a charm is lovely so many techniques. You are not a rookie any more you have cruised on in as a pro in making ATC and rolos. You go girl!! Thank you for the sheet of flower stickers. I plan to use them soon. : )
Response: Thank you for the nice compliments. I get really nervous being a rookie. LOL Thanks for the reassurance. I'm a scrapbooker so this was hard for me at first to create so small.LOL
Comment: You did a great job-I love Halloween anytime and have a black cat and have seen her do that move where she turns her head sideways to looks at something-too funny! Thanks also for the extra ATC backgrounds-I can collage on them-you are doing a good job converting from scrapbooker to ATC-er-it takes awhile to get used to do smaller-but the same rules apply-you can use as many layers as you like and it's ok to show on back! Carry On!
Response: Thank you so much for reassuring me. It means a lot. I'm glad the ATC reminds you of your cat. LOL.
Comment: Thanks for the envelope full of cool stickers and stuff! I am going to debate camp next week (I've been on staff there for 25 years) and will definitely use the stickers! The little ones are just the right size for the campers badges, so I really appreciate them!
Response: You are welcome, hope they worked out at camp.
Comment: These recipes look amazing. I will definitely be trying them. Thank you for the WW recipe that was nice. I love your cards and the care put into making them. I also loved the envelope. Thank you again.
Comment: Awww, try not to worry about your daughter. I'm sure she will be fine. I wish her all the best! I bet this is a very exciting and nervous time. I liked the note and thank you for all you included.
Response: Sigh, she is leaving soon, I am still not ready. LOL :)
Comment: Thank you Wendy for this seriously great swap! Your 2nd ATC is just beautiful, thank you for sharing it with me. I love the sewing stamps and Amy Butler paper...I'm a fan of her fabric as well! The rolo and tags intrigue me and I really need to learn how to melt pony beads...the ones you sent are so cute and perfect! Thank you again for such a considerate and perfect swap ♥
Response: You are very welcome. I'm glad you liked itt, that makes me happy.
Comment: Your journal was wonderful! No worries for not sharing deep thoughts, everyday stuff was great, that's what I did. My life is so different than yours, when I was doing mine, I left my house a total of twice. :( It sounds like you were mostly wonderfully busy. I'm so sorry for the hard times. Thanks so much for the stationery! Love it!!

Comment: This was awesome! I have been watching tutorials on how to melt the beads but I have been to chicken to try it in real life. I actually like the way they look and they will add a little jazz! Thank you so much for personalizing this swap.
Response: Yipee! I'm glad you like them. They were fun to do. Some people say they didn't have issue with them smelling- I sure did. Headache. Open the windows if you make them. ðŸ˜£ Definitely worth it tho.
Comment: Wow! Wow! Wow! I loved everything you have sent. ALl the washi tape, the teas, the lovely notecards and the adorable slipper socks. I thought the Hello Kitty masking tape you used to package the envelope was cute too. It's been lovely swapping with you, and I'd be happy to swap with you anytime. Hopefully your parcel has almost reached you!! :)
Response: Got my package today. And I am just as excited. I'm glad you like everything. The comfy socks are for your feet while you're in recovery. ðŸ˜‰ i hope you are feeling ok? Let me know.

Your package had come real fast :) I hope you like everything I sent you... :) Thank you sooo much for the folders, no words can describe how much this means to me... Hope to swap with you again...
Response: Yipeeeee! I'm glad you liked them! I looked everywhere for larger size folders, you have no idea how hard they are to find. I tried to send a variety for your card making. Figured you could use them for many occassions. :)
Comment: Wow, WoW, WOW Wendy!!! Where did you find those AWESOME tapes??! Those were incredible! I loved them all - and you sent so many extras!!! You went wayyyy above and beyond the swap! I loved the patterns and colors on them all. You sure made my day very special! :-) THANK YOU!!!!!!!
Response: Yipee! I'm glad you liked them. I found them at a place called Horsefalls variety store while I was on a day trip. I got myself some also. :)
Comment: Love the card Wendy! Also like the tapes you sent! Still no duplicates from anyone I receive tape from or the ones that I have bought! This is unbelievable! I wonder just how many designs of Washi Tape there are?? Many hearts to you.... :-)
Response: That makes me laugh. No duplicates! One can never have enough washi.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely kit goodies... not sure they were really spring themed other then the ideas you gave for the layout and photos.
Response: I thought all the colors and embellishments were spring. I guess that's the fun of interpretation. I wanted it to be a family layout and included the extras that matched the theme. I am sorry you feel this way. Wasn't my intention.
Comment: Thanks so much for the adorable sticky notes :D & washi tape extras i love it all
If you would like to do a private swap on any of this stuff let me know, even washi tape samples i have many washi tape! I hope you get your swap from me soon ^-^
