Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful ATC and for the extra postcard, I loved it, so wonderful! I wish I could put you a 5 and a heart, but sadly I can't for being sent more than a year late. Still I'm happy to change the rating for a 3. We all have issues with swap-bot sometimes, and everybody deserves a second chance. Thanks so much for contacting me and making up for this.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you again for letting me make up for it.
Comment: Thanks for sending me a profile surpise (An envelope full of goodies) as an amend for not sending the letters. As you remembered to do this after such a long time, I think you deserve a heart! Thanks a lot!
Response: Awe Thank you so much! It was so kind of you! I am glad you liked it all!!!!
Comment: OMIGOSH! WOW! I would give you a MILLION hearts if I could! Words cannot describe how cute this it! It is so adorable! I absolutely love it! It is possibly the cutest thing I have ever received and melted my heart when I got it! I love gnomes and I love Paul so it was the perfect swap :) It was so cute! I love the tree with the initials too! Btw, I showed it to Paul and his reaction was "aw that's really cute, and accurate :)" Thank you so so much! One of my fav swaps of all time! EDIT- Fiddlesticks, the tree was lovely. and the condition was perfect! It wasn't even bent!
Response: YAY!!!! hehe! I am so glad you love it! It was a lot of fun even if the tree did not turn out right hehe! My mailman gave me issues about my last 2 painted envies and the stamp placement so I hope it arrived in good condition! See you around!
Comment: This person was having difficulties but logs in regularly and updates their profile to say so and that they intend to complete all outstanding swaps. I wanted to give Tina time to catch up before rating her. It has now been a very long time since the swap was due. I have now had this swap angeled for me for both partners. If @tshaver wants to make amends I am open to changing this 1 to a 3 if she would like. - - EDIT-- This swapper has contacted me and made amends for this swap. The items I received were really lovely and definitely made up for the swap. The 3 rating is for the swap being so late. I understand that unexpected things happen and wish you all the best in the future.
Response: Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed your package and thank you for letting me make it up!
Comment: Thanks for the great shabby chic ATC. It is only bright pink that I can't stand. you know the neon bright kind (hot pink). Soft pink is good. Unusual card that I will enjoy. Patrice
Response: I am so happy you liked it! I was wondering what I was gonna do but then I just got to my machine and let creativity take over and just grabbed random scraps and went at it! Oh good no neon pink! shabby is always a fav! Have a great day and thank you for the <3!!!
Comment: I will rerate if I get anything. It is now well after Christmas and you have not responded to my PM's nor have I received anything. This was a big swap to be flaked on. 3/24/12- I have contacted you and given you my address again.
Response: In route on 9-15-2014
christopherpines from TinTiaraTrims sent you a conversation on September 23, 2014.
I did Tina, thank you :o) My girls were fighting over what was in the package :o) I have not been on swap bot in awhile, and they miss the packages! I will try to get on this week and change your rating.
UPDATE... I have inquired about her rerating me and she says she is busy. I have emails as proof THIS SWAP HAS BEEN SENT AND RECEIVED!
Comment: Thanks for sending it along--I love all the ampersands and the moisturizer was really welcome since we're having a terrible cold snap out here! (and the address labels are great!) Hope your holidays were lovely! Thank you again!!
Comment: Rating revised: I got the package today (1/2/10), thanks!! Everything was lovely, can't wait to try the soup. I'm afraid I still have to leave your rating as a "3", since it was mailed a month past the swap deadline, but thank you so much for following through and sending it. I love everything, and wish you the best getting things back in order and caught up in your life.
Comment: The send by date was Nov. 14. You marked sent Nov. 15. That would be fine, except that I received a PM today [December 1st] that you hadn't, in fact, sent it but you would be sending it.
I will rerate if I receive anything. I am so sorry, but marking sent, when you haven't isn't in the swap requirements. Take care and I hope you are able to catch up.
Update: The ornament arrived Dec. 19, with apology.
Comment: Love the envelope! Just cuz you used modern tools, it doesn't mean it's not handmade. That Jane Austin font is wonderrrrrful.
Question: what did you use for paper and printer? It is such a glossy professional feeling paper.
Response: lol I just emailed you too! HAHA I used this paper that is called presentation paper. from staples! I know I love it! but only used it for certain things! it is a little pricey for paper. and just my ink jet printer!
Comment: What a lovely envelope of interesting things. I am very happy to get the chapstick and cocoa mix...very wintery things! The cards are very interesting. The ribbon will be very useful. I was most pleased to get the Friendship Book page. I have been trying to figure out friendship books...still not sure exactly what to do, but this gives me an idea. Thank you for a great swap!
Comment: Hello Tina,
Sorry I have been slow in getting your rating done for this swap. However, I do appreciate your patience with me. I wish to extend my appreciation for your package of scrapbook paper you sent to me as part of this swap. I appreciate the variety of papers you sent--especially like the music paper. I look forward to using the paper in future creative endeavors. Look forward to swapping with you in the future. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for card. It just so happens that my wife and I are Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi addicts, so we had a good chuckle when this arrived. Never been referred to as a "non-female before" although someone else referred to me as a "swap bot dude," so had a laugh about that too. Thanks again. P.S., cute snail mail doodle.
Comment: What a nice surprise. And very appropriate too. I don't have those stamps and love them! The fall coaster you made is already in my studio holding my hot chocolate cup. Thank you so much. Keep swapping.
Response: Oh good I am glad you did not already have those! hope you also liked the addy labels!
Comment: Thanks, the package has arrived! Didn't open it yet, but I saw it in your gallery :)... He'll be happy! He was very curious to know what was in it, but fortunately he's not too difficult if he's told it's for his birthday...
Response: I am glad it made it before his Birthday! Let me know what he thinks when he does get to open it!
Comment: I'm happy to be your first rating! As a newbie in ATC making, you'e aced it. I love your playing card creations, and the envelopes you made are very original. Keep up the good work, and keep swapping.
Response: Oh I am so glad you liked them! thank you so much!
