Comment: Since you're the third person to say I need more content I probably should get some out huh. ;) I actually love pumpkin, but I have since I was little and before it was trendy. I hope you have a fantastic fall and fall break.
Comment: Thank you so much for the notecard and extras! I love the paper and the little day of the dead skeleton people! Now you totally have me thinking also about what in the world is pumpkin spice exactly 🤔😂😂😊
Comment: Thanks for the fun chunk and your note. It's been hot here too. Not over 104F, but we hit it several times. It just isn't supposed to be over 100F in northern New England in June. Oh well. Its past now and I'll be snowshoeing soon.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderfully written letter, I wish I could reach over the ocean and give you a hug. Alas because I cannot do that, I will be sending you a response letter soon. Thanks again! x
Response: Yay! I will be looking forward to that very much!!
Comment: â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡ I just got your package! WOWSERS!!!!!! I cant wait to finish reading it after dinner!!! Ill write back tonight or tomorrow (soon)!!!!
Comment: Jamie I loved everything in my pic 3!!! We have similar tastes. Love the little red riding hood bag in French. So retro! I'm framing for my kitchen. Your note (on the beloved notecard lol) was so sweet :). Thanks bunches!!
Response: So glad you liked it! I love those bags. Too bad I never want to put anything in them and give them away! haha!
Comment: Hey, thanks for the letter, must say I would've bought the same cards if it came with a tin that had the same beautiful image. I loved it, I actually bought the other day one of those fake books that you can put stuff inside just because it had a Paris theme. Take care.
Comment: Your envelope makes me SO happy!! I think I will leave it out just brighten my day! Thanks so much for all the goodies!! I love them all! When I go to the antique stores, you can find me an in area with ephemera.. love it!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful package you made my day!
I do like pink I just have no favorite color...I like all colors,
I will write when I get moment . It is nice to get positive mail. I know how hard a divorce can be.. just keep smiling!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome letter. I'm sorry you've been through so much crap and I hope things are starting to get better. Drop the guilt! You can only do so much and anyone who judges you isn't worth your time.
Comment: Worth waiting for, the best list journal ever. Your honesty stuns me. So sorry I gave you a hard time for being late - now I understand. I'll write back to you soon, so much to answer and say, trust me it does get better and all happens for a reason.
Response: Thank you so much. You really made my day with that comment. I look forward to hearing from you, and to making the lateness up to you! Thank you again.
Comment: Wow !! I absolutely love the card !! This is my very favorite card of all times and to think...........it came from you !! If I could give you a million hearts, I would give you a million and one. Merry Christmas my friend, Merry Christmas !
Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it! :)
Comment: Hey!! Thanks for all the wonderful stickers! I'm a bit confused to why you asked me what makeup brands i liked to make up for the lateness? Then send stickers? But that doesnt matter :) ANYWAYS, Thanks for the swap!! Would have rated a 5 however the package was meant to be sent Nov.11 You messaged me you were sending in November 29th,but here still says Dec.03 So you still sent it later than you said, which is a shame, My advise would be to maybe not join many swaps? As in your letter here it says you didnt have enough money to send out, so Im guessing maybe you should cut down on swaps to make sure you dont send late xxx
Response: Thank you for the rating. I think that if you count your stickers, you may find that you got well over the 30 I was supposed to send you. I couldn't send any nail polish because it's not allowed to be sent in the mail. You didn't specify what kind you wanted of other makeup, so I sent more stickers. I understand that you have to follow the rules, but when you get divorced and your life is shot to shit, you let me know if your first concern is stickers. I couldn't send the day I said because I didn't have the money that day. I didn't buy groceries, either. I meant to send you a little piece of makeup as extra by the way, not makeup instead of the stickers. If I had done that you would have rated me a 3 because I didn't follow the swap. Enjoy your extra stickers. You're welcome. Thank you so much for your advice. My advice would be to give people a break.
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous card. And we hardly get snow. Last year we got a couple inches after New Year's. I was like can we make it christmas snow. And thank you for the owl stickers as well..Merry Christmas and Happy 2013.
Comment: Thanks for the great quotes, the nice note, and the VERY beautiful card! I love anything with butterflies, and this card is superb! I may have to frame it for the spare bedroom our grandchildren use when they visit. They range in age from 3 months to 21 years, so the decor is very eclectic, and this card will fit in perfectly! Thanks again, and ahppy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for your weird/random stickers. I thought it was hilarious you sent on the ones you received and hated, haha, although one of them I really liked! (The Goya painting.) Of yours, the Little Girls poem was the sickliest - yeuch!! I will be giving many of these away. ;)
Response: I know, right? I kept thinking that I should be using that little girls poem in a scrapbook thing but it was kind of weird to me.
Comment: I thoroughly loved the sticker show I received from you, especially the comments and the large format layout, and I'm so sorry I hadn't rated you yet. I honestly thought I had after the initial prod! :X This was a great idea for a swap - one of the most original too - and I'd sign up again in a heartbeat (if you'd forgive me for my late rate). :) Thanks for your stickers.
Response: Oh thank you..I'm glad you liked it! I thought it was fun to have something to actually DO with stickers, rather than just put on the outside of an envelope, you know? Maybe we can do it again!
Comment: This is one of the oddest cards I've seen. Some of it is quite lovely, the rest quite disturbing, actually, and all mixed together with no hint of why! I have to say, I'm not surprised to see it was made in San Francisco (& I'm guessing in the 60's!). You note gives me the giggles .. so glad you were able to use some of the atrocities I sent you ... and none were really 'extras' ... all bits & pieces that seriously needed to be disposed of!
Response: I know, RIGHT? Icky, wasn't it?! I mean, who saw that card and thought "I MUST have it for my collection?!" Glad you didn't like it! hahah!
Comment: Thanks for the cute PC - it travelled so far! I like Mesa. I only live in Scottsdale because it's close to work. People drive like jerks here! haha AJ is kinda "meh" but Gold Canyon is pretty. Thanks again!
Comment: Oh geez... those cows... (: I will probably enjoy the card more than you, every year my aunt puts up a bulletin board in her classroom for each season. I bet she'll love this for her Fall board :P
Comment: You did a really pretty job on this envelope.Cupcakes I love and even some bling! The things inside great too. I also love that you took time to write a note. I am terrible about getting my rubber stamps out too and I have a boatload of t hem, haha. Yes, learning the mailart is tricky for me too, but I do love it. Esp. these that Justene hosts that give us alot of room for our own imaginations. Thankyou!
Comment: Though the cards are quite beautiful, they are also quite cheap and you're absolutely right about sending quality things to people you care about--especially sympathy cards! LOL Thank you for sending me your junk. I shall properly dispose of it for you.
Comment: If I could I would give you 100 more hearts! Thank you so muchhhh!! Omg I cannot believe you got all of this for me together! That came not too late at all! It's so heavy - I can't express how happy and thankful I am (at least not at words on a computer screen)!!!! Thank you again â€“ and now the Turquoise eyeliner can just go down of my wish list I guess ;)
Again â€“ thank you so much! I just love it and I hope you got a package as good as that! thank you ^^
Response: Oh I'm so glad! :) I thought you might like the Oreos if you like cookies--at least they never go bad! haah! And when I saw that eyeliner, I thought it qualified as turquoise, so I took a chance! Glad you liked it!
Comment: Thanks for the mail art. I love the mouse. Very retro! I have a hard time coming up with themes sometimes as I'm just a beginner, too. I think it was great! I hope you keep doing it.
Response: Oh that's nice you got it! I'm glad--I was starting to get worried. That mouse came off of a package that had postcards like that in it, and I thought I didn't want to waste him, though he was kind of thick to glue, and the tape sort of ruins the effect, but he's cute. Thanks again!
Comment: thanks for the cute card, I don't have that one. See, this is why I don't like to say "I only want..." because then you miss out on cute cards like this! And I agree with you, it's not just the card - it's the writing, the stamps, the decorations, all of it!! I joke that it's "Spreading world peace one card at a time!"
Comment: i really really loved all the thought u put into the questions and how you put them all into the neat little notebook with the cute stickers... u are very creative... sorry for taking so long to rate ya :)
Response: Not at all, thank you! Glad you liked it!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome card and lottery ticket! The card is perfect for the swap LOL :) Unfortunately, the lotto ticket didn't win us any money (I say "us" because I totally would've split the winnings with you). I agree with you about the money thing. Same thing happens around here. My reason this year for being bummed is that my teen daughter is being super rebellious. It's bringing me down dealing with her behavior. I'm trying to enjoy the season anyway, but it's like having a dark cloud hanging over my head threatening rain or something. Anyway...thanks again for sharing and I hope that the season will be brighter than usual. :)
Response: Did I tell you I love LOVE the Klutz book series too?! I have never heard another adult admit that--those are great! I don't care about all of them, but quite a few of them appeal to me! Bummer about the lottery ticket--haha! I have a 5 year old daughter who is quite tired lately, and terrorizing everyone in the house at the times I am most stressed and can't take it well--like on the freeway, or rushing to leave for work/school--so I totally know where you're coming from! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas anyway. (I recently learned the power of returning things without a receipt. Desperate times call for desperate measures!) haha! Hope to swap with you again!
Comment: Thanks for the pretty card and owl stickers! : ) I used to live in Scottsdale! I miss it a lot. We haven;t had any snow yet here, so we'll see what happens. It has been getting colder lately,too. Hope you have a great holiday season!!!! : )
Comment: Youre crazy! I think you did a great job it!! I loved it and I loved that everything was green :) Thanks so much! ...and thanks for my cute little goodies <3
Response: hahah! You're being kind, but I will take your charity! I am always kind of struggling with how to make it better, and believe it or not, that's an improvement over the first couple. (The thing I like about mail art, though, is that it always looks better after it has been through the mail!) :)
Comment: I LOVE my package!! First, I love the old stamps on the envelope, stickers are adorable, and the card itself - love the phrase and typewriters. And then of course your letter. :) You pegged me perfectly: I enjoy word finds, the notecards are adorable, love how my pen writes, and such a cute journal! Owls are so fun. :) The hot chocolate is yummy. But what was so neat is the paint with water set!! I always tell my kids how much I loved doing them as a kid, and how neat it would be to show them what I'm talking about. And here it arrived! The kids and I are going to have fun it for sure. Thanks so much. :)
Response: Oh I'm glad! I know I like things like that, too, but I was afraid you may find it too juvenile. Then I saw that you HAVE children, so I figured somebody could get some use out of it! haha..enjoy!
Comment: Wow, that card was something... some kind of zen? Either way, thanks for the chuckle and smile. Loved the Owlies! If I could get the darn "give a heart" button to ever work, you'd have one for sure!
Comment: Got a winner! Thanks! :) $3 coming my way soon! btw: I love the card! It reminds me of being in some of my favorite places! All are near the water! :D
LOL... Anytime! Do you accept scratched lottery ticket winners? :D
(and yes, I did laugh.... I am also sitting here trying to keep from laughing some more! Great profile read!!!!!!!)
Comment: Thank you for your card....I know you think it's ugly, but I think it's super cool...LOL...I can use it in my art!!! So I'm glad that you didn't like it :0) Now the postcard...that's another story! LOL!
Comment: Aww . . . cute kitty! Well, the postal machines did keep a couple of letters for themselves, but the message was still clear, and the cat was still cute. Thanks for elevating plain white rice to cuteness!
Response: Oh I'm glad you finally got it! Those stupid letter stickers don't stay on anything! Sorry!
This was a great letter. I typed mine out for my swap because I knew they wouldn't be able to read my writing. I am a lefty and try to make it seem like I'm a righty, since I went to Parochial school.
My sister is a teacher as well and she loves it.
Have a great day and I'll write to you soon.
Response: Oh good! I will look foward to hearing from you! :)
Comment: Thank you for such a pretty postcard :)
If there is a UK version of Swap-bot I don't know about it. I'd probably still use here more though as it's fun sending and receiving mail from all over the world.
Comment: Thank you for the really cool card. At first I thought it was a guppie, then I realized I was looking at it the wrong way and now im not sure how I thought it was a fish. Sorry I had to give you a 3, but it was over a month and I had to contact you about it. But you did do a very good job and its pretty neat. Ive never gotten a sewn postcard before.
Response: Ok. Your hard edge is tiring. You totally took everything I said out of context. I don't owe you anything but that late postcard, which is hardly a criminal offense. I don't send crap--I said if I had known what kind of drama this was going to have caused I would have just sent anything. A person can look at my record and see those hearts, so you're incorrect. And mean-spirited.
Comment: Jamie, I'm sorry you had such a hard time getting the cards to me! They arrived today, thank you. But you might want to read the swap descriptions a little better on future swaps - this one said to put a sentiment on the front and to include envelopes. But, I have extra envelopes around here, somewhere, so no problem!
Response: I'm sorry about that--I noticed the second time I was sending them that I hadn't done that with the envelopes, but I included the note to you and totally forgot the envelopes! Hope you can use the card without the sentiment..I kind of thought the one would be better without any particular words, because you could use it as anniversary, or love, or friendship even. Sometimes words are limiting, I thought.
Comment: Love the strawberry card - I had a lot of fun picking them back in June. Wild ones grow in my yard but they don't taste very good. :( Prayers that your place is the right one, the one that is meant for you and your family. What a great swap. I hope you do it again sometime!
Response: Lucky you, picking strawberries! I live in the desert, so we don't get a lot of those around here, but I'm from upstate New York, so I've picked them there...glad you liked the swap. Hope all is good with you! :)
Comment: Thank you very much for my bluer package!<3 I adore the cute bird, I clipped him up as soon as I opened him :3
Thanks for the blue charm. I've been wanting to start one of those bracelets, and now you've given me the perfect excuse to! And I'll put the markers to good use (: I use so many and I tend to run out of blue fast, since it's my fave color.<3
Comment: Hi Jamie, Thank you so much for the beautifu ATC!! I love it! You did a great job. Isn't it fun making them. I spend almost all of my time making cards and ATC's. It is addictive! Just have fun and enjoy it. Again, thanks for the great ATC!! Nancy (grannystamper)
Response: Thank you very much! It's nice of you to say! It really is fun to make those, isn't it? You got it fast! :)
Comment: Thank-you! The card and the postcard both are very pretty! I enjoyed reading your note,too! I must tell you that I hate both the cold as well AND lobster! Even my husband,a native Mainer,hates lobster! Go figure! :D
Response: You hurt me with all that wasting-delicious-lobster-by-not-eating-it talk, but I'll forgive you this time! :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: oh, thank you SO much. this package was a blessing; the gorgeous paper, the stickers, the paper doll, your gorgeous appreciations......i wish i could give 2 stars:)
Response: Oh you're so kind! :) I'm very glad you liked it. I thought doing it that way would be sort of creative, but also could be a bit annoying, so I'm glad it worked out. Your calling it a blessing was actually a blessing to ME, so thank you. I really needed that today.
Comment: Wow, what a lovely package! I LOVE the bird pouch - can't wait to use it! And all the lovelies included inside - those awesome charms, that pretty mirror, the fabulous stationery, and that adorable glitter bird! I loved this package!!! Thank you for making it so special! And thanks for your kind words! :-)
Response: That was so fast! I am glad you liked it and had fun putting it together! (Though I was bummed to go into a new store I'd never been to and see a little section of bird stuff! Why can't stores be more thoughtful and have what I need when I need it!!) Take care!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome bunch of circle stuff! I have never seen most of these goodies so it was cool to go through them and I know that i will be able to use everything. I have never done a bottle cap and the puzzle was such a fun surprise! Great swap!!
Comment: I love your postcard that you made out of a greeting card! Its so funny because my dog is a boy and my parents dog is a girl and they are so in love and that totally made me think of them! I've heard Modern Family is really funny from my friend, but I have yet to watch any of it. I'm really into Glee and Raising Hope! Happy Swapping my dear!
Response: Wow! Either that got there REALLY fast, or this has been a much busier week than I thought! I think it only took two days for that thing to get there! Happy swapping to you, too! And watch Modern Family--I think you'll like it! :)
Comment: *smiles* *giggles* *smiles*... this is me receiving your card! What do I love? Black cats & books; well your card had it all! Awesome choice, I totally love it!! Thank you for the extra items as well, it's the first time I see clear stamps, I can't wait to use them!
Comment: Yay Jamie !!!!
This was a great election of tote !!!! It was a cool crazy combination of vintage and steampunk and crazines !!!!!! and i also liked the note, the elepnaht shaped card was great. We dont have Trader Joes here, and i dont even know what is it, haha. You made me a lot of questions, that i want to answer you, but i prefer to send them in a postcard to you, Would that be ok ? Tell me ! And thanks again. Cheers !
Comment: Thank you for everything! The cards are lovely, especially the wait a minute card haha. And the clear stamp, and the sticker and the ribbons and the deco tapes and the trinkets and the matchbox book! Haha! You really deserve a heart for this thoughtful package =)
Comment: Thank you for the selection of the paper. :) Please remember to add a note w/ the swap name and your user ID with the swaps. :) It's harder to rate if you have to search through all the swaps you've sent out.
Response: I'm sorry! I thought I had--I usually do, but every once in a while I get in a hurry to get it out on time and forget. :)
Comment: OMG 2 postcards! The roadrunner is beautiful. I didn't realize they had that flash of rainbow behind their eye. Is that only on the males? AND OMG LINCOLN!!!!!! How did you know that I'm totally head over heels for Lincoln? Did someone tell you? Did I accidentally gush about it on my profile? THANK YOU! It's my new fave card!!
Response: I don't know how I knew you'd enjoy Lincoln, but I'm so glad you did! I am ashamed to say I don't know about roadrunners, except that they look cool running around here. I always want to shout "meep meep"! everytime I see one! haha!
Comment: Hey lettergirl, Thanks a bunch for your bucket list, I hope you get the opportunity to do some or all of the things on there and for the record, it was a very lovely envelope and letter to receive!!
Comment: Hi Jamie! I'll have a Picnic, a cup of Liberty Minestrone, and a slice of Red Velvet Cake! Thanks for the take-out menu! I got some great ideas for sandwich and salad combinations! I also appreciate the little sticky note pad! Please tell your daughter the envelope was lovely! (For a minute there, I thought I needed to find my stronger glasses or that maybe you had stamped it on a boat or during happy hour! Ha ha!) Take care, Karen
Comment: Thanks so very, very much for taking such great care of my package, and I mean you took some time and some great heartfelt feeling into this envie, I felt so special!!!!! I think your my new best friend!!! I hope are paths cross again!!!!
Comment: I'm sorry I didn't rate the heart for the ticket. I just forgot. And I did write back.
Response: Well, you see, this is a perfect example of why people with low self-esteem shouldn't be making comments on here. Sorry for my edgy response--I was feeling low that day. Is this going to effect our notecard penpal relationship? Hello...? (chirping crickets again...) :)
Comment: Thank you for the long, well-written letter. You're right, that is very cool paper! I can't promise a reply at the moment as I'm very busy but I want you to know that I read every word- my heart goes out to you and your family. We are in a similar situation re. finances, I'd say its a global thing! I hope your situation improves over the coming year. Love, me
Response: Oh thank you! Glad you got your letter (that seems fast!) and isn't it terrible that there are so many of us in the same boat--even so far away. Hope your situation gets better, too! :)
Comment: i loved the stuff in the package you sent. the pens and pencils are always welcome since i'm back in school again. and thanks for the baby in the bubble and the m&ms. i'm already using the binder clip, too. i could tell you put a lot of thought into this swap, thanks!
oh, and the scratcher was not a winner but it *was* fun to think about the possibilities.
Response: I'm so glad! Happy you could use it all. :)
Comment: very nice letter and stickers in the bottle!
Response: I'm glad it made it to you OK--when I was at the post office I didn't have any tape, and I couldn't see anyone caring enough about what was inside to try and get it out! Glad it made it there OK. :)
Comment: I got the PC! It's very gorgeous, where did you find it? And iced tea and your new kitty both sound so amazing, that would make me happy too! ^___^
Response: Thank you--I'm glad you liked it. I found it in like a gift store (it was a set, in a pretty canister) and it's from a company called papaya. Take a look online at what they have, because it's pretty neat stuff. Glad you liked!
Comment: Thanks for the super swap. I love all it! The monster book was one of my favorites too and I loved Wooly Willy. It's all great..thanks so much.
Response: I can NOT believe how fast that was. I swear someone at the post office just took it with them to the airport to fly where you are, and drove it over in a rental car to your mailbox. Weird. Glad you liked it! :)
Comment: What a great package! It was like it's my birthday... Oh wait... It is! (Well, tomorrow anyways. Great timing!) I can't wait to try the cactus candy, and the plaque is really pretty. Thanks so much!
Response: Happy Birthday!! So glad you liked it--have a great day!
Comment: Best purple envelope ever, and thanks for all the interesting looking envelopes - I love your creativity - so exciting to look at. Guess which one I am dying to open (and to *copy* your brilliant idea, if I may be so bold + derivative?)...... the stitched one that looks like an enormous round teabag. :D A thousand hearts to you!
Response: I know! Isn't that teabag looking one fun!? It was fun to make too. You are supposed to take the coffee filters and soak them in tea to dye them, but I'll bet you could use other stuff to dye them. I'm glad you liked the envelopes. (I just opened all of mine at one time. I have no patience for waiting!!)
Comment: Hi Jamie! I got your letter today thanks so much! I just read in the train on my way to school and there is so much in your letter I want to respond to so I won't do it here but in a letter :-) xx Marjolein
Response: Oh good! I'd love to hear back from you!
Comment: I'd give this 10 hearts if I could! Thanks for making TWO new things - one for you and one for me! I just put the little rubber chicken up in front of my computer with the little piggie and the tiny rooster. It's my new mini-farm!
Comment: Well, your extensive cyberstalking research came beautifully to fruition with this package! I am indeed a cigar box type of gal, I loooove glass beads and I constantly covet all the charms in the Blue Moon section at Michael's. The keys are the kind I hoard for projects I keep selfishly and the magnet is the most interactive addition to my big ol' magnet collection box (did you know you can keep food in those too?) I consider myself a little bit white trash so Tacky glue is perfect (who wants a snotty glue that looks down on you anyway). Gold stars, you rock.
Love, mercedes benz
Response: But did you like it? That's what I'm really asking.
Comment: This package was totally extra special and included a letter which was really nice! I loved the book, the stickers, gel pen and everything else! Clearly you put so much thought into it and it really cheered me up!!! THANKS XOXOX
Response: I couldn't be more pleased! Thanks for the heart! :) (Now stay cheered up!)
Comment: First off I didn't even want to open the envelope it was so cute. Love green btw! I also really enjoyed reading your letter. I will get a response out to you as soon as I am able with all going on. Will explain more in my letter. Thanks again! :)
Comment: This happens to be basically THE coolest thing I have received to date. You are so awesome. I'm going through it slowly (enjoying it), absolutely thrilled at your creativity and cuteness. And of COURSE you are forgiven for a sparkly page - I'm not allergic to it. :D The whole thing has just made me endlessly happy. Thank you so much!
Response: You know what? Your comment has made ME endlessly happy. I looked at your profile, which is beyond cool, and was completely blown away, and I don't craft very much or very well, so I was worried. Thank you so much!
