Comment: There was so much to love about everything you sent to me. It was fun opening all the little packages. I loved the pot holders (not sure if you made them), the little flip book, Washi tape and the cute tea pouch/packet which is getting packed for my trip to Florida this Friday. Thank you so much. This is truly one of my favorite swaps.
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful Autumny Halloween flipbook! I absolutely love it! The Post-it book you made is so cute! I am in love with the paper you used! Do you mind if I ask where you got it? I also cant wait to try the cold brew tea!
Comment: Thank you for the swap Darlene ❤️ I actually kept a third of the items, my mom wanted another third and the rest I m passing further ☺️ I didn’t expect to find many items because I m not in need of anything right now but ... I had to keep the recipes book & small black board & wooden cut butterflies & mini fridge frame because they were so cute lol! Then pens, washi, stickers, envelopes, notebooks, fibers I always use 🙈 My mom wanted the purse, cute napkins, soap and wooden snowman. And I kept the sunglasses for presents lol 😅 So most of it was kept, there were few small things to pass only... So glad cuse I already had a completely stuffed box for my partner and I didn’t want to have another box of things to pass again 😝😂 I ve been on a “getting rid of anything extra” kind of mission so I m trying to keep organized, only what I really use or cute decor stuff for my desk or paper things for my collection 🥰 Thanks again!!
Comment: Thank you for the variety of wonderful postcards, chamomile tea bags, matchbook notepad, and wallpaper envie! It was like getting a birthday package on the mail today! If there was one, you'd win today's prize for happiest mail giver! Thanks for spreading joy - I really needed it!
Comment: Wow..thanks for all the goodies you sent! The print of the girl and women picking flowers would be pretty enough to put on the wall! The tea bag holder is adorable! I hope you don't mind if I share it and pass it on.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap! I appreciate the teas and washi tape. Also uses for them! And the camera paperclip is too cute! And the stickers are great for my smmer themes!! Thanks again!
Comment: WOW! What a wonderful assortment of items. I can really use the make-up as I had to throw mine the other day because it was getting too old! And the stamps! I've been working on my stamp book lately between swaps! Love all the crafty supplies and the socks(will have to wait till it gets cooler here for wool!) I truly appreciate everything you sent-like getting things from where the person lives-love the map! Thanks for being a wonderful swap partner! Happy Summer!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful and generous package, Darlene! I’m especially excited about the new shadow brushes (mine are in rough shape!) and I’ve been dying to try the Tarte shape tape and now I can try it out! So many fun things to play around with! Thank you!!
Comment: What a fun, fun, fun package to open! I love everything. The dish cloth will be my new favorite one, the puffy owl stickers are so cut e I don't know how I will bear to use them, the tea bags were packed so lovingly. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you! I am never disappointed with your swaps. I must say, I love the homemade envelope how you used wallpaper. What a perfect way to use it up :-) I find some at thrift stores but way to flimsy. I adore the papers you sent, my favorite being the Mary E ones. I keep the ones I like the most, never using them. My husband drank the tea yesterday amidst the horrible rain we had. Hope you kept warm my friend. Thank you again, Michelle
Comment: Thank you for such an amazing swap! I'm back on the site after 7 years. This is also the first time I've seen your swap in that period (though from the stamps I can see it was sent out in time). Anyway, my apologies for the extreme delay and thank you for the great swap!ðŸ’– Have an awesome day ahead.ðŸ˜Š
Comment: I LOVE all my goodies, especially the retro recipe card...what a great idea!!! I love making cookies so I am going to try this recipe. I also really like the stationary, stickers, book mark, tag and tea! Thank you so much!
Comment: Thanks for the super cute Halloween PC - I love it! Sorry for all the rain you are having, the weather is pretty nice here - cool but not too cold. And yes there are lots of pumpkins around town. Best wishes and happy swapping!
Comment: WOW!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful package. I love all of the list pad sheets you included especially the Christmas sweater, Halloween themed, and cat ones. I love the Halloween stickers as well, the teas, and the note card. : THANK YOU !!
Comment: Oh my gosh Darlene...you sent so early! It was such a nice surprise to get the bag you put together in the mail today. So many goodies! Thank you so much for the thoughtful gifts and treats; the care you put into it is greatly appreciated.
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful package you sent Darlene! Everything is perfect, I have already used a couple of the items. Thanks again, I really appreciate your generosity and the thought that you put into this package. Thanks again, hugs.....Tammy
Comment: WOW! Was my husband excited! All that for him. He had the bag of chips open to munch on as he continued looking at everything else, then he immediately opened the starburst. So I guess those are his very favorites. He is excited about all of it, gummies, taffy (with a PC for me, how sweet if you!), skittles! Really, a wonderfully sweet and sour package! He loves it, especially that it is all for him. I appreciate it too and thank you for making his day and joining the swap!
Response: It was fun picking things out for him! My family claims the Michigan made Better Made barbecue chips are the best! Have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the great cards you sent! (Even the "potentially offensive" one made me laugh, ahahah! I had heard about the calendar version of that series but hadn't yet seen the images.) The lighthouse was soothingly blue, and the Shenandoah Valley in full autumnal splendor was particularly breathtaking :) Hope you have a good weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous pocket letter! I love flowers and butterflies so it is perfect for me. Thanks for the extra teas and the cute envelope you put them in and all the extra goodies:) Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you for the nice selection of teas. I was especially stoked to get the pumpkin pie tea, since it was something I have been wanting to try, and it's something we don't have available here.
Comment: Darlene, thank you for the great bunch of postcards, especially the spectacular one of t he Pointe Aux Barques Light Station and the info on the lighthouses in Michigan. Interesting, I did not know that Michigan had the most lighthouses in the USA. Shirley
Comment: Thank you so much for the binder, it is decorated so nicely. Love the lace. The extra teas are so cute in the pocket. Thank you for all the goodies and the extra pocket protectors. What an awesome swap!
Comment: Darlene, thank you so much for your Pocket Letter, it arrived this afternoon, after I delived mail in the drizzle. So yes, the colour yellow means spring (when will it arrive?) and happiness!
Have a nice weekend!
Comment: I love all the fun ephemera, embellishments, cut outs, stickers and everything. I've gone nuts over washi tape and I'm especially delighted that you included a roll. This has been a delightful swap, thanks :)
Comment: Oh my goodness! I love them! I've had a thing for blue and green lately, and they're perfect! And the black, gold, and orange one I've purchased many times! I was actually running out! Thanks so much! And the little embellishments will go perfect in my planner! Thanks for joining my swap!!
Comment: Darlene, yours was my first little classroom valentine to arrive! Thank you so much for the gummy lifesaver! I never had one before, and it was quite tasty! I loved the valentine poem. Did you write it! Thank you and happy Valentine's Day to you!
Comment: Thank you, Darlene, for the tin and goodies that you sent me. I received it today. Boy did I have a time getting it open, but it was worth it. I will be enjoying all the goodies for a long while. Thank you.
Comment: Hi Darlene I received my parcel and loved the socks. Thanks for the extras, I was due for a new address book. It's funny but the little things seem to be the last thing you buy for yourself. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: Ohmy, ohmy, the whole card is ripped in two :-( It's delivered in a plastic bag from United States Postal Service (well, the bag is sort of cool). Thanks for the lovely card and glittery spiderstickers!
Comment: Thank you for the grape PC. When I first saw it, (without my glasses on) I thought it was a paint collage of some sort. That is until I saw the grapes then I knew what it was. :-)
Comment: what a fantastic swap - it was like the best birthday/Christmas rolled into one - thanks for checking my profile i.e., the beautiful washi tape - I love the teeny bookmark, it is so simple and elegant - I could go on and on - - -the quotes are so nice - - -thanks for everything - Happy Swapping, your Bot Buddy, Phyllis BUT the adorable owl on the outside, it is taking me forever to retrieve him AND I WANT HIM !

Comment: HI Darlene, Thanks for sending such a nice selection of items and for being so generous. I really love it all, especially the way you package the teas, how creative! i hope you have a wonderful day!
Comment: Hi Darlene - Thank you so much for the wonderful teas, I'm drinking the Ooolong as I type this and it's delicious. I'm going to have the Chai tomorrow. The holder you made and sent them in is gorgeous, thank you so much. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter-in-law, I hope she is doing better now and I'll keep her and your family in my prayers and thoughts. You have certainly done a lot of swaps and I agree that they are addictive. It sounds like you live in a fantastic place and I'd love to be a postcard penpal if you wished. All the best and happy swapping Jane x (jep1068)

Comment: Hi Darlene I received your parcel and loved everything. I didn't have any of the tapes in my collection. The tea looked interesting - I have never tried eggnog tea. The little tea carrier was really cute. I really loved the little mug rug but I am not going to use it for that. I have been looking everywhere for a really nice carpet for the living room of my doll house and now I have one - the colour is even perfect. Thanks for such a great package and I hope we swap again sometime. Pat

Comment: after opening the stationary packet I found out this was not a NEW letterset as it was incomplete 3 envelopes and 4 sheets instead off 8 lettersheets,6 envelopes and a stickersheet should have been in it but was missing. So disapointing ! Will re rate once I recieved a complete letterset./// thanks for sorting this out. I recieved your package today.

Comment: Please put the swap name somewhere in/on your sends. I had to look through all the swaps I do (not just on swap-bot) to figure out what this was for. What is the cut up paper stapled together with people's addresses?? [updated] I have no interest in friendship books and no one to send them to. I suggest you read your partner's profiles before including such things.
Response: The papers with names on it are friendship books . Send them on and the last person who signs sends them home to the person made for.
I usually add my card to swaps so eather I forgot or you missed it. Sorry

Comment: Thank you for your amazing swap, Darlene! So many different kinds, I bet this is more than $2 worth. They all look wonderful and I'm especially thrilled about the Lifesavers and Rice Krispies Squares as I've heard about them in American movies etc but I've never had any before. Also, your "handle with care" sticker on the envelope is great! You definitely earned your heart <3

Comment: Darlene I could kiss you!! I so loved everything about this parcel which arrived today it was very exciting to open and find all the wonderful gifts, my daughter in law was with me and we squealed when I found the cute pen, just loved the butterfly although it will have to be indoors, our UK weather would soon destroy it, the craft papers,notelets,lip balm, cute peg which I'll use in my craft room. I would give you many more hearts if I could, I will use it all, you are an ace swapper thank you so much, have fun with swap-bot, with kind regards Barbara

Again, thanks for everything, the socks and hat are so cute!!!!
Comment: Thank you very much Darlene. I love this swap. Thank you for the lovely note and fb's

I still have a smile on my face!!!
Comment: This was easily one of the most spectacular swap packages I have ever received. My whole family was sitting in the living room as I opened it and they were "oohing and aaahing" as I took items out of the box. My husband was even impressed. There is not one thing that would go unused! We love it all. Did you crochet the dishtowel? I LOVE having those to put on my oven door! The tea cup and saucer were way over the top! I cannot tell you how much your package made my day! It was beyond generous! Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful stuff you sent! I'm not sure what they've been doing with this envelope, but it looks like someone folded the envelope a few times, so the postcards and the earring box are quite damaged. But anyways, I absolutely LOVE everything you sent, Thanks! :)
Comment: Your thoughtfulness in preparing my package for the SOMETHING PRETTY swap is off the charts! I cannot thank you for the wonderful package I received (all items in red, with a minimum of 4 required and of course there were many more than that from you). I absolutely love all my gifts...from the socks, candy, cards, wrapping paper, lady bug, sparkle pen, handkerchief, embroidery thread, and the list goes on and on! You have made me feel special, and again I thank you!
Comment: So many goodies! Lots to make, lots of cards. Especially liked the small scissors, the envelopes (uses tons of them), the paper kit and the dimensional flowers. Everything will be put to good use! Also, thanks for being so prompt, that means a lot to me.
Comment: WOW! There are not enough hearts in the world to give to you, you are such a wonderful and thoughtful person! The stickers alone completely made my day, I aboslutely love them! Then the memos and the wonderful postcard completely blew me away! I cannot even tell you how thankful I am, you really made my day special. Thank you! :) â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥

Comment: Thanks for resending and WOW!! I was amazed with the package I recieved! I was just expecting the things on the list but got so much more! I Love the snowflake decoration, did you make it?
Response: I really feel bad , and sent you another package out, and am wishing you will change my rating when you get it.I think it was a oversight on my part. After doing the amount of swaps I have done, you can see I just would not have done this on purpose. It was the Christmas rush. Enjoy your new package!
Comment: WOW! Was not expecting this swap to arrive so quickly! Maple syrup candies--mmm! You definitely read my profile to find that love. :) All the items were much appreciated. Thanks! Happy swapping!
Comment: I received the TP tube today. It was decorated lovely and I have carefully peeled the material and button flowers off the ends to use in my scrapbooking :) The peanut stickers really put a smile on my face and the dog shaped clips are cute.

Comment: Hi Darlene !
I received your swap today, thanks for your rapidity. I laughed a lot when I opened the package and when I saw buttons. I do not make collection of buttons for clothes but I make collection of pines (brooches with images of Union Jack or Sex Pistols), I think that the error comes from my English which is not as good as it would be... Too bad for me !! Thanks for the little magnet bookmark, it's cute.
Comment: Thanks for the joyful Christmas card, Darlene. This is my first Ccard this year. Thanks too for the vintage Claus and the calendar bookmark...
never enough bookmarks around this house.
Best wishes for a wonderful 2011!
Comment: thank you SO much- and i absolutely love the sunglasses holder you made as well- so thoughtful! funny story... i stepped on my sunglasses 2 nights ago because there weren't in a case...oh, the irony!
Comment: Thank you sooo much for the buttons! I love them all! Can't wait to put them to some good crafty use!
Thank you for the little extras as well, I can't wait to try the strawberry tea you sent!
Comment: Holy Moley Guacamole! Thanks you ever so much for the super duper stamp grabbie! I can make lots of fun collage items with these. Wow so many, whoohoo I can toss them up in the air and let them rain down like confetti :o)
Thanks so much for reading my profile.
Comment: Thank you =) I'm in love with that sticker alphabet you sent me, tend to use it at least once in every scrapbook project I do (but it's not for sale in Norway!), and that OMG-notecard is just too cool!
Comment: Thanks, Darlene, Love the buttons and am anxious to try the receipe;- but not until the temperature drops well below
the 103 that it was today, and has been most of the week. LOL Thanks bunches.
Comment: I been wanted to give a '3' but looking in that I am not been specified on the requirement. I decided to give a '5'. I had mentioned that the package need 10 items and it must have the color pink and I meant all items must be pink. But since I am not been specified enough, I decided to let it go. But another part, I mentioned that the package should be sent in flat rate or box and you did not managed to do that. I am quite disappointed, but based on your good rating and not being too harsh, I decided to let the problem off.
Comment: Your second pkg. arrived today, and is fantastic! I hope to use the gold print in a wallhanging that I'm planning. My sister loves snowmen, so the snowman fabric will go to make her a dotee doll...and the solids are always useful. Thanks so much for resending...I really appreciate it!
Comment: Thank you so much for the chap stick!! I have a lot of the m&m ones so I thought it was funny that you sent me that one. The other one melted so I'm not sure if it's still useable, but that's not your fault. Thanks again. ^v^
Comment: Thank you SO much---opening this package was a GREAT end to my day :) I couldn't have asked for anything more or better than what you sent---I LOVE all of it! Wish I could give more hearts as you truly deserve it. Thanks again!!!
Comment: This is a precious surprise package of beautiful thoughts and sweet things to be happy about. Top ten things only women understand is so true and fun. The note cards are super and the seeds will be planted today. Thank you for being a fabulous swap partner
Comment: Thanks for the tea and card (it was so neat).These were exciting because they are all new to me. The Plum Fruit is awesome! Your handwriting is amazing. My daughter wants to know how you learned to write like that. lol (SMILE)
Comment: Hello Darlene,
Thank you for the wonderful collection of loose cards you sent me and for the great package of card that had to do with the beach and cruise travel. All the cards arrived on Feb. 12th in excellent condition and I had a wonderful time looking through all that sent me. I appreciate your patience and understanding with regard to my slowness in getting your rating to you. I do hope we have more opportunities to swap with one another during 2010. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!!!

Thank you so much...it's all yummy!!'
--your swap pal, Sandi--
Comment: I felt just like Christmas today, when I found your wonderful package from my mailbox :)! THANK YOU so much for all the lovely items, but especially the angel and the towel will get "extra points"! I just donÂ´t know if I ever get to use the towel; itÂ´s much too pretty...And my daughter will get the cocoa, because she loves it. You really made my day; hugs and have a very Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hi Darlene-I'm going to give a 5 for this because it is such a beautiful card, but it was supposed to be a large letter card and there are no letters at all on it, :( Have a Merry Christmas, Karyn
Comment: Wow!! It already arrived AND it's wonderful. I have eaten a chocolate (and a caramel), and looked through all the goodies (already getting ATC ideas...scissors, papers, ribbons...) and I JUST ran out of scented bath gel, so perfect timing! Thanks so much for everything, it's great. I would give more hearts if I could. :D Love it love it love it.
Comment: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the daily bread kit!!! This is so much like something I could buy for myself or my Mom. I love everything that you sent to me. Thanks for being such a fab swap partner and I look forward to swapping with you again soon:)
Comment: She deserves a heart because when she realized she misread the swap requirements she was Johnny on the spot to remedy it! I appreciate that and I feel its worthy of mentioning to show she has swap-integrity! Great Swap!

Comment: I loved my package. I was so torn, because I would have loved to save it for Christmas. But, I have really had a tough last two weeks and just wanted something happy. SOOO - I went for happy. You got me the perfect items. I love the post cards and the Indian penny is awesome. Thank you for being such a beautiful person to write me a nice letter. I needed the encouragement and I appreciate your sweetness. God bless you and I hope your package is just as lovely as mine.
Comment: You sent some unusual items. I don't understand the reason for the place-card frame? The thread was a great and the hand knitted dishtowel is pretty. Some of the other stuff was a bit odd. Thank you tho.
Response: Sounds like you were disappointed. I use the placecard holder as a small frame and I want to send another package to you. Tell me what you would really like!
Comment: Darlene I just received your package today. I was going to wait until Christmas to open it but who am I really kidding. WOW so many nice things I really like the handmade table towel and the pretty pin. I really like the Hello kitty and monkey stationary too. Well just about everything and you wrapped all the gifts so nicely. Thanks so much for everything! I particularly like the powerful women's quote you included. Hope you are having a Wonderful Autumn. Happy Halloween and a Merry Christmas to you too though it's still abit off!
Comment: Seriously the best swap I've ever gotten. I cant' believe how many stickers there are and how huge the sticker sheets are. We can't get lisa frank stuff in Canada unless it's from a store that is American, so every time I go to the states I have a treasure hunt for lisa frank stuff and bring it home with me.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful envelope full of fun things...candy...one of my favorite quotes on a book mark...the recipe..everything. And the glittery pumpkin stayed on the outside of the envelope!
Comment: Finally - my first package in from overseas! Got it late last night. Thank you for the variety of things - and where did you get the Canadian souvenirs? My daughter loves the little bear, and my favorite is the heart and the pretty tag.
Comment: Love the little dresses. Are they from Tuesday Mornings? Playing cards are neat. I have friends in Tecumseh, Ontario. How FUN to get someone from MI. I will be visiting in December. Enjoy your Fall. I miss that time of year. :)
Comment: Darlene, What a wonderful ribbon package you sent! I absolutely LOVE the colors and all the different types you sent. The roll of black/pink ribbon was very thoughtful and I truly appreciate it!! It was so nice to have a pretty package filled with goodies mixed in with the bills hehe!
Comment: Thank you for the nice postcard. You know.... I have never been to the Anne Frank Hiding Place. It is a shame, I know. I really want to go there, but just never did it. Maybe this year :-)
Many greetings, Ingrid
Comment: I'll admit that I usually shy away from "handmade" postcards... but yours is the exception!! I loved it and I love photography. I like that the photo is matte and not glossy. Very well made and only slightly "beat up". It earned you the heart and my respect. Thank you.
Comment: i recieved your letter today but i could not read the address for marion( her birthday is in july). if you have a more clear copy, could you send it to me.l thank you so much. denise
Comment: Oh thank you so so so much for the FANTASTIC package you sent. It was funny, it was actually pouring rain when my boyfriend brought it in and it absolutely worked. Cheered me right up. We have the cake in the fridge atm, delicious, I love all the paper products and the deer cards are adorable. thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you. I especially loved the postcard with the older photograph. I looked at it and thought "that could be Worland" It's where my grandmother is and I was born and my mom grew up. The main street looks almost exactly like it. I so miss the Ben Franklin store :)
Comment: Thank you Darlene! I use the Burt's Bees Night time eye cream and now thanks to you I have the day cream! Also I am so happy to have the body lotion and the lip balm! I am crazy for all lip balms! It must be a left over thing from using different flavors of roll on lip glosses when I was in High School!
Thank you again and since you actually read my profile, you get a heart!!!
