I don't even know where to start, I could absolutely tell how much love and care went into this from the moment I opened the package. I really could experience each item with one of my senses when I unwrapped it. I love the body scrub! And the rock gives it all a super special touch. Thank you for making my day, this was an absolutely stunning and generous parcel. Thanks a million times! I hope I can return the happiness some day. :)
Response: Awe thank you! I am SO happy to hear you enjoyed my package! I really had a hard time picking the items haha, I was over-thinking everything. I was also nervous sending it so I'm happy it arrived safe. Thank you for the sweet rating hun! XOXO
Comment: What a special package of rocks you sent. I loved how you presented each of them all tied up in pretty fabric wrappings, with your descriptions of what each one offers. I love the polished agate pocket stone (we called them worry stones), and I l also love amethyst. How fun too, that you found some crystals in your own backyard. What a fun mail day it was for me.
Response: Thank you so very much for such a kind rating! I love stones and I'm always happy to share them! Have a fantastic summer. <3
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful journal! I had so much fun reading it and looking at all of the goodies!
Response: I worked so hard on that thing! I was actually nervous handing it over to the post office lol. I'm thrilled it arrived safely. I'd love to know what your favorite entry was! Or more about what you thought of it :) Thank you so much for the rating and heart.
Comment: What a lovely pussy, I love it! Thanks for the PC and using HP stamps :)) yeah, I guess we're all pussy whipped, us catslaves XD have a great day!!
Response: Wow that got to you quick. That was the very first postcard I have ever sent! I was nervous, it felt so bare and naked... so I thought the exposed pussy was very fitting! LOL. I'm glad you noticed the HP stamps ;) Thank you for the rating and heart hun.
Comment: Oh, Kristin! Thank you SO much for sending me such an amazing package that went so far beyond the swap requirements. :) I absolutely love these tarot cards, and the playing cards are absolutely lovely as well.

Response: Awe I am so glad you liked everything! I love making others smile! And I was so excited when I saw tarot cards on your profile because I love sharing mine. Thank you for the rating and heart. xoxo!
Comment: WOW! These are awesome and so many! You wen overboard ^_^ Thank you for the extras. 'll be using most of these in my scrapbook of shadows. As for the sandable envelope I think the texture is a lot of fun though I understand the misgiving about the color showing through as it doesnt so much. But i still think the texture is fun. I think my favorites are the gold ones but the clockwork ones are awesome too...so pretty all together! Thank You!!!
Response: I tried to find papers that seemed like your personality/style but honestly it was harder than I thought! I'm glad you liked them. Once I started making them I just kept going haha. Thank you for the rating and heart. See you around the 'bot!
Comment: I am so sorry I was slow to respond! I actually waited a few days to open it so it would be closer to the solstice. I love your choices if stones and the little gifts. Very thoughtful. The stone beads will be lovely in jewelry. I have been trying to imagine what I would like from them. Thank you so much!
Response: No worries! I am so happy it arrived safely and I hope I put a smile on your face, hehe. Thank you for the rating and heart. XOXO
Comment: Wow ~ the best package ever! So many goodies in here, I will really enjoy using them! Thanks for the Japanese postcards ~ my niece is marrying a Japanese guy so I need to know more about his country.
Response: Thank you! I'm always a bit nervous sending out those kind of swaps because I never know how much to include so I go overboard haha. Have a great day. xoxo
Comment: Love the paper, where did you get it! Love both but the ring one is my favorite, thanks! 5 extra hearts if I could, that's how much I like them! Going to make it my movie ticket stub & other stubs, I think anyway!
Response: The paper is by companies called Kaisercraft and BoBunny and Authentique. I have a local shop that sells individual sheets and I LOVE splurging on them and making books hehe. Thank you very much for the heart. Have a great day! xoxo
Comment: Thank you for so many wonderful items! The pouch too was very beautiful. Please tell me am I to open the little one that is wrapped in green and tied with a ribbon? Also what is the name of the very colorful stone with the many shades of blue. The quatz stone is so appreciated as since it is a cleansing stone it will do well in my home. My place is in need of a good cleansing =D/
Response: I just sent you a message because I thought I forgot to mention what swap this was for! The colorful one is called peacock pyrite. It's a variant of fools gold. Yes open the little green one! I wrapped it to protect what's inside. Glad the package made it's way safely to you! I love collecting trinkets and things so I was thrilled to pass some along. Thank you for the heart! Xoxo
Comment: This box is beautiful!!! The colors are absolutely what I like, and all of the papers and charms are wonderful. ^_^ I'm trying my hardest to resist opening all of the months at once! XD Oh! The small crystal that you included means a lot to me because it looks just like an item that a character from one of my favorite stories carries. ^_^
Response: This was such a great swap hun! I am SO happy to hear you enjoyed my box and goodies, I loved putting it together. Oh and I loved the one I got too! Thank you for hosting such a unique swap. Happy new year ^-^ XOXO!
Comment: I just love the background on your page. When I opened the cardstock you had to page in to protect it, I just went WOW. Thank you for the extra goodies for me to use.
Response: Awesome!!! Green is my favorite color and it goes so well with blue. That was my first dictionary page and I'm so happy you like it. I'm always nervous my style might not be somebody else's style. I'll definitely be joining more of these dictionary swaps now! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for all the really COOL journalling cards. I will use a lot of them for my correspondence to my pen friends. I'm new to these fun little cards, so was happy to join your swap. Thanks for making my mailbox and me happy!! :)
Response: Thank you for joining my swap! I'm glad you liked my selection. These cards are so handy for so many things! I even make little books from them. Thanks for the rating and heart. xoxo
Comment: Wow, 2 zines! Thanks so much! I love your poetry and inspirations. Also like how you glue the back page down and put your contact info on the back =) I need to read Eckhart Tolle--have been wanting to....

Response: Wow, thank you! I really loved decorating this one so I'm happy to hear you like it :) Thank you so much for the rating and heart. xox
Response: I really hope you have fun with it! I love having a binder because journals are my favorite craft and it makes them so professional and neat and tidy! Like I mentioned, it helps to watch YouTube tutorial videos. Thanks so much for swapping with me and for the heart! xoxo
Comment: Thanks for taking the time to look at several posts. And thanks for your compliment on my drawing!
Response: You really do have great drawings, like I said, your style is whimsical! I loved going through your blog. This turned out to be a better swap than I expected because I enjoyed both my partners :D
Comment: I just picked up my packet from the post office today and was amazed at your wonderfully imaginative map! I wish I had done mine a little more like your take on it. Mine was a bit too literal. I noticed right away that most of the place names dealt with minerals and rocks. VERY cool! You asked about my favorite feature... I think it would be a tie between Garden of Souls (I love old cemeteries - and you even drew tiny tombstones!), the Secret Well of Wishes and the Ghostland Plains. But then the Cinnabar Cliffs were great as well. Your art work on the map was wonderful! And I love your zines, the note, fabric and family tree paper too! Thank you SO much!!!
Response: Yay! I was soooo excited to hear what you thought! I was actually nervous lol. Thank you SO much for such a kind rating. This really was an amazing swap and I'm sure your map is just great too! It was a great opportunity to play around :) Thank you! xoxo
Comment: Thank you so much. I like all the pretty papers and different sized papers (how did you cut the edges so nicely?) and the extras too! Very nice
Response: You are so welcome! I tried to make each book customized to the persons profile. Glad you enjoy yours. It's time-consuming but I love making all the edges different! I have some funky scissors and I do my best haha. Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: The day book you made for me is so cool and it will be fun to put things in it,so many pages I like how you did that with all different edges that is cool what a fun swap we did. Thank you so very much for the day book.
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart! I tried to make each book customized to the persons profile. Glad you enjoy yours!!
Comment: This was one of the best swaps I've ever received. I loved reading about your daily life, and all the cute details made the reading even more fun. Although I'm almost twice your age and live half way around the world right now, we are so similar. Thanks for putting your heart and soul into such a special journal. I sure hope to see you in the next round - Winter Stuffed Journal. Thanks again!
Response: I am SO glad to hear you received it! I was pretty nervous about shipping. I tried to include as much visually appealing, fun, creative things as I could! I didn't want it to be just writing, especially because I think I have a fairly boring life hahaha. I really appreciate your amazing comments, thank you so much for the rating and heart. OH! I'm thrilled to do a winter one! Can't wait!
Comment: Thank-you for such an awesome package..i love that you sent sweets that i could share with my 3 children they all get excited when they see iv received mail so when they get to try some of what the US has that we don't it will definitely make them happy(for that i think you do deserve the heart) I especially like the Lime journal and the cute little handmade one.
Thank-you very much Happy swapping Kristin
Response: I am so happy the package made it! Thank you for such a kind rating. I tried to pick interesting notebooks and candies and I'm glad to hear you were able to share them with your family! Happy mail can really brighten up somebodies day :D This was a super fun swap!
Comment: I got the LOVELIEST little booklet in the mail today!!!! Still flipping the pages looking at ALL of the pretty details and little mini goodies - I am so excited!! You did such s nice job on the booklet, the stitching (I want to figure out how to do that), the tags, and tiny little envie. Thank you for such a fun swap!!!!
Response: Wow, thank you so much for the compliments! I'm super happy you like it! It was the first I made like that. To sew the edges I use a tiny hole punch first then just experimented with my thread and came up with a criss-cross pattern. Very easy actually! Thank you for the rating and heart. xoxo
Comment: Thank you for the whimsey jar-I think it was supposed to be 10 oz though. Some of the beads and buttons will be useful. I like the paper shapes of the sanddollar and starfish. The polished rock is neat as I collect those. I am going to give my son the sea animals for his baths and my daughter is claiming the shells. Thank you again.
Response: Woohoo, glad to hear it can all be useful! I almost didn't include the paper shapes! It was a slightly stressful swap because I've never done a whimsey jar before and wasn't sure what to include. Thank you for rating me and for the heart!
Comment: Wow! Thank you so very much for such an amazing package!
First... I <3 Citrine, thank you for this lovely stone! Second... I've never had Black Tourmaline before, these pieces are so beautiful! I'm going to do a bit of research on it's attributes/properties because when I held the pieces in my hand they felt very 'electric', which is wonderful!
These that you found on your hike are so very pretty! I love how they catch the light and glisten. I can see the little crystals growing on one of them (like you said)! Wonderful!
Yes, yes! I've had pet mice & rats (quite a few over the years). They are so intelligent & loving. :o)
Also thank you for these very cool & unique Tarot cards.
Best package ever! Thank you so much!
Response: I am SO SO glad you liked my stones! It makes me happy to know they went to a good place. I also feel the energy in them and love sharing it with others :) Thank you so much for all your comments and the heart. XOXOXO
Comment: Kristin, I got my journal the same day I got yours. I love my journal so much and I totally laughed when I opened it up, bc it was like we are on the same wave length on what we were sending each other. Enjoyed swapping you with you and hope to do it again sometime. xoxo
Response: I know right?! That's pretty awesome. I did get the bracelets too, thank you for everything! XOXOXO
Comment: Wow! I can't tell you how much I love the journal you made! I keep going through it! Thanks for all the goodies inside of it! That's the type of journal I would buy if it were for sale in a store or online! I love it! :)
Response: Wow, I am SO happy you like it! I wasn't sure if it was TOO junky haha. It was fun to make :) Thank you so much for the rating and heart. xoxo
Comment: Thank you so much for the exquisite DIY magazine notebooks you made. They were lovely and the deco tape around the edges was such a clever idea! Thank you for the journalling tags, too - they will come in handy. Have a sweet day. (ï½¡â—•â€¿â€¿â—•ï½¡)
Response: You are welcome! I was SO thrilled to see your swap. I made a ton of those mini notebooks. Thank you for the kind rating and heart. XOXO!
Comment: I received your super cute kit today! I loved the 1 page instructions of how to make a zine! The ephemera and paper scraps were so great. Thanks for the pen and washi tape and zine samples.

Comment: LOVE!!!!! omg, i don't know which is my fave but i adore them ALL! you are so sweet. i just started making these tags so the swap was perfectly timed. i had so much fun doing them. i also just made my first envies using the same pattern u did. i will certainly join other swaps like this. i'm thinking of doing these as my ACTs, for my self. i'd love to have that punch also that u used for the tags, i like the curved shaped.
Response: Awe wow! Thank you for your kind words! It means a lot. I'm so glad you liked them. It was kind of an experiment haha. I bought the punch online at Amazon. xoxo
Comment: Oh how I wish I'd gotten yours before I sent mine out! I never thought to write them separately. The cat one was my favorite,sooo cute. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the little scraps & tags you sent. You totally made my day. <3

Response: I can't get enough of them either! Thank you for the rating and heart :)
Comment: AMAZING assortment of ephemera papery goodness... In fact, GREATNESS is a more accurate description! It is evident you went through my profile because the contents of the BURSTING AT THE SEAMS envie was full of things I love. You are so thoughtful and it is definitely appreciated by me. Anytime you want to do a private swap, I would love to spoil you too! :-)
Response: I am SO glad you liked it! I really LOVE putting packages together. I have so much stuff and I don't want it to go to waste so I love sending it off for others to use or pass on. I'll message you about a private swap later. Thank you for the rating and heart! xoxo
Comment: Thank you for a really special ATC! I have just discovered use of feathers and love using them.

Thank you for joining my swap, I hope you also receive some nice ones for your collection & you enjoyed the swap. â™¥
