Comment: Hi Ivana thanks so much for your handwritten letter.
I have visited Prague and a part of the Czech Republic many years ago. I loved it then, thanks to your letter I know more about you beautiful country.
Comment: Thank you for the tea, I have stashed it away ready to try. I have given a heart for this swap, which is mainly for your letter as it is so beautifully written and informative.
If you are happy for me to do so, I will write back, let me know? :)

My child is grown too, but I have a grand kitty and grand puppy so far. Merry Christmas with Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you Ivana, everything is so special! Thank you for the washi and all the cat items, they are beautiful (((: I love the little owl figurine, thank you for reading my profile and making this lovely swap for me â¤
Comment: 3 hearts for you, Ivana! Thank you for a exquisite selection of teas. I am just sipping the seaweed mix because I was so curious about it: I like it. I am sure the other teas will be delicious as well.
We have some hot sunny days ahead.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful napkins! I also like to decoupage with them - they make such a nice , mostly translucent layer. I use them either for a background or I take little bits (like a bird or a flower) for a specific area.

Thank you for sending this swap over again, I really appreciated getting it in the mail! Hopefully whoever ended up with the first one had their day made by receiving it by mistake!
Comment: Hi Ivana, you said that you are a beginner crocheter? =) I think you did a good job for a beginner! And thank you for making the effort to make so many different types of flowers and using colorful and special yarns =) I also liked that you wrote me a letter. I hope you receive pretty flowers too!
Comment: Hi Ivana! Thanks for all of the tea! I can't wait to try it!! I love citron tea and they don't sell it in America.. I thought it was an Asian thing and always buy the Asian kind from the international market. Can't wait to try the Czech citron teas (& all the others!!) thanks so much! I love teas! I'd give you extra hearts if I could!
Comment: thank you so much for the wonderful teas, the recipe and the letter! i'm very excited to make the gingerbread recipe when the weather cools down enough for me to start baking again. i can't wait to try the teas!
Comment: Thank you so much for the two stunning cards and your comments - just love the 'smallest town in the world, I think we have some similar towns in our country - you're making me having to do my research!! I also love your countries stamps - thanks again!
Comment: Thank you! this is such a lovley package. I love the recipes and plan to give making pancakes a go this weekend and the stickers a sooo cute. Thank you for the beautiful braclets and the cards.
Comment: I received your WONDERFUL tea booklet. I'm amazed that you had a tea bag for most of the letters. If I could give you more hearts I would!! All the tea you sent me looks good too. Thank you for making my day happy!!
Response: We are a small country but have a few very good tea companies. Thanks for your nice words!
Comment: i got my first intermation letter today and it was filled with more than the required teas and teas i had never heard of or seen before. I am so exicted not and can not wait to try all of thesee. THANK YOU
Response: I am glad you liked it and hope swapping will be pleasure for you. Have a nice day!
Comment: I _love_ your card and the stamp on it! I can not wait to taste the teas you sent, espacially the biogena tea (the wrapping looks great!). The postage stamp looks also great. :) Thank you very much. <3
Comment: I really loved the teas you sent me and you put some special effort in the nice card! I though feel the need to tell you, that you only sent me 1 black tea instead of 3. Tea with black fruit in it (like the pickwick cherry or the apotheke blackberry - they are both fruit teas, as well as the pomegranate and the pineapple tea) and pu-erh tea aren't black tea at all. But I don't mind this time because as mentioned before I really love all the tea you sent me and I'm impressed by the "Earl Grey" -card :o) Thank you!
Response: Oh, I am so sorry! I checked the boxes twice to be sure they are black! The pickwick had a Title BLACK TEA WITH REAL FRUIT PIECES and the Pu- erh had also written black on it. Please, accept my apologise and despite of the mistake enjoy them!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card & all the extras. I really liked that you sent a recipe of you Christmas dinner. I will be making this at some point. I love the tea and the stickers. And yes, I would enjoy being your pen pal. I will send you a letter soon. Have a great day! :)
Comment: Thank you for everything! :) I will give a try with tea bag folding soon. I'm fascinated with it :) Love the postcards - the one with St.Nicolaus and Krampus will be scanned, enlarged and used for my hubby's class display next year (he teaches little ones 1st - 4th grade). Straw ornaments are made here as well although I haven't seen all the shapes you've sent me before. Little paper doves are on our Christmas tree (my 4 year old loves them and played with them before putting them up). For used postage stamps, there are some that I already have but I'll reswap them ;) Still, most are new to me :) I'm always willing to do a swap for stamps, you can PM me when you collect 50 or more and we can do another private swap. I'm also looking for old greeting cards (written are OK) for decos and mini journals so if you have some, spear them for me. ;) I can send in return more labels or some scrapbooking supplies, even some wooden or clear stamps. :)
Response: I am glad you liked the items I sent you. I have plenty of things you would like to swap, letÂ´s keep in touch and we can start when having time. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much Ivana! I really like and appreciate the seed beads. I didn't have any in those colours before so they're very welcomed. They will be so useful, thank you, thank you. The stickers are very sweet, they make me smile.
Comment: Thank you SO much for everything you sent me in the swap!! I will definitely try the recipe - the photos you added look so tasty :) Thank you too, for the cute postcards (I love them!) and the cute Christmas decoration you made! This was so much fun to receive, thank you!
Oh, ps - are these big postal stamps like the 24KÄ one on your envelope common in Czech Republic? They are gorgeous!
Comment: Got ur package. Thanks. Will re rate u after I open my gift on Christmas:) UPDATE: I loved loved everything. Love the fuzzy socks and the hello kitty pillow and the cute lil purple doll girl. Thanks so much Ivana!!!
Comment: Hi Ivana,
Iâ€™m so sorry I didnâ€™t rate you sooner.
I just wanted to wait until I had a chance to sit down and take some time to read the letter properly! :-)
Iâ€™m drinking the grape & spice tea at the momentâ€“ its lovely, and I will write back soon!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the lovely things. Prague looks beautiful in the postcards and very useful bookmarks, the tea will be nice and warming as winter approaches, and the Christmassy napkins are great. Love the buttons too. Thank you thank you thank you!
Comment: THANK YOU, I so love the socks and can say I have never seen any like them. Not sure I will wear them to much as I would not want to wear them out but I SO appreciate them. Can't thank you enough. They even arrived on my birthday : ) Blessings
Comment: Can you believe that your package is already here? :) And it really made my day! All those wonderful goodies you've put inside!! Specially love that little blue origami star, did you make it? And... you are right about starting here, expectations, joys and disappointments so THANK YOU for putting such a wonderful package together! :))) Um... yes, and thank you for making people in post office put all those stamps on the envie! ;)
Response: Thanks for your nice comments. I made the star, it is so called TEA BAG FOLDING, my big hobby. I have fixed the stamps on the envelope in advance, knowing they often glue just an official sticker there instead of stamps. Happy swapping.......
Comment: Thank you for the nice punchies (I especially like the textured flowers and frogs). I will use them in upcoming projects. And thanks for the tea samples---they made the envie smell really nice. :-)
Comment: Thanks for the gorgeous papers you sent me. I know I'll have a great time using them in the winter, while I watch the DVD about your country - one I've never visited - and drinking tea, carefully not spilling it on my work.
Comment: Thank you, I love the tea cup pad! I've been to Prague and it's actually one of my favourite cities in Europe. Don't be nervous you did a great swap. You're right it's still cold and even some snow left here in Sweden.
