Comment: Thank you for the nice card and note and for the wonderful PC. I love out. It is going up on the wall over my monitor.
I'm missing my granddaughter right now. We video-chat almost every day though.
Response: That makes me smile! I'm so glad you like it. So nice you can video chat. Stay safe.
Comment: Thank you for your beautifully done coloring PC! I love the flowers! Boy, I hear you on that, about the toilet paper. It is even bad here in Canton,PA. Every stinkin' store is out! I have always stocked up that stuff & I have a ton. But I have always stocked up on stuff like for years. So, No worries with it with us. It is so ridiculous though with toilet paper. Even water too here. people think now the virus is in the water! Plus, At our Tops grocery store, people bought up all the meats! What the heck! I needed hamburger for a noodle dish for supper tonight & there isn't one drop of it. OMG. People here are nuts!
Response: Thank you. It is crazy. I have to have chicken for my little dog for health reasons. Stay safe.
Comment: Hi Dreena,
Thank you for the beautiful postcard you created for me. This postcard will be a great start to my new postcard collection. I lost all my postcard in my move as I had to do a major downsizing, but I think I could have kept some of my postcards as they took little room. Well, I will be doing lots of postcard swaps.
I am sorry that it took me awhile to rate you, but I have been in moving mode for quite some time. So, know that I appreciate your work even though it took me some time for me to rate you!
Response: Thank you and its no worries at all. I hope to swap again soon and you get comfy in your new home.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and extras! I tried making soap once. I would try it again. I've been buying most of my soap from a girl I went to high school with. She sells it through the mail, which is good because I can't get back to WV so often. Her company has an FB page. Tigerfly Soap
Response: Thank you and thanks for the soap info. I will check her out.
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing Roo‘s story with me. That was so beautiful. I am so happy that you found each other. I have a cat out of a shelter. HE was dumped over the fence glued in a box for the same reasons as Roo. He is ten years old now and so happy to be with us. Thank you for the beautiful fox sticker, too. I love it.
Comment: Thank you so much for reading my profile!! You took time to notice I LOVE steampunk and cats!! The tags are so beautiful! I I am just now getting into the llama thing!! A very nice swap, thank you!
Comment: Hey Dreena, thank you for sharing your weekend events with me and all the extras! Love them all, especially the cute potted plants. :D Prize bingo sounds like fun, the 5 small gifts is such a great idea PLUS dessert! Happy swapping! :)
Comment: I also have dippled in diamond paintings! But i always just went back to crocheting. Thank you for postcards!! I loved them. Book recommendation:
Under The Trestle” is the true story of the most compelling murder case in Virginia history. Mystery and true crime rolled into one.
Response: Thank you. I will look that book up right now.
Comment: Love the cute butterfly coloring PC! Thank you! That' s it, I'm moving to where you are,lol ! With the 80's temps. you are having, They sound better than, what we have. Which is upper 20's during day & 10 degrees at night. I hate it!
Response: Thank you. I'm all for trading for the temperatures here. Over 80 means high electric bills.
Comment: Beautiful tropical bird Littleroo. Thanks for making it and sharing. I'm honoured that my C&P swap is your first C&P. Keep an eye on my profile, I usually do a C&P a couple of times a month. :) In terms of tips, this has helped me when using thin magazine paper... spray-on glue or rubber cement (rubber cement is cheaper). Keeps things flat. These two youtube videos about these glues are good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CciwEAZWVk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otv4rZ8Yss8 (Hope you don't mind me adding the tips here. It might be interesting to others.)
Response: I thank you for the tips and open to any help to be better at any art or craft. I will definately watch those. Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank you for the cute note card; sounds like your weekend was the perfect mix of busy and relaxing! I have never tried diamond painting, it looks fun though. Thank you for the llama stickers and the diecuts!
Response: You're welcome and thank you. Happy swapping!
Comment: Hi Dreena, Always a treat to receive mail from you. My husband actually did a watercolor painting/drawing of the last card you sent, replicating it for a postcard. This card was very nice as well and the tags were wonderful. :)
Response: I always enjoy sending to you. That is really nice. I bet it looks great.
Comment: Another fabulous swap! From the flower note card with little cactus stickers and it's contents inside. I LOVE the kitty tags. Those are going in my journal along with the little vintage flowers. The post cards and hello kitty stickers were wonderful. You do not disappoint ! ;) Thank you Dreena.
Response: Im glad you enjoy what I send. I try very hard to make my partners smile and send things they would like.
Comment: Ugh! Your neighbor sounds awful. You definitely should get reimbursed in some way for the electricity. What the heck‽ I hope thing get better and that you get your bathroom wall painted. Their logic does not resemble our Earth logic.
Comment: Thank you very much for the wonderful card and coins/note you sent. I was really happy to receive it all. I appreciate everything you sent. I didn't realise the USA had a dollar coin. I've only seen the notes before. Happy swapping!
Response: It was my first swap like this so I was hoping I did it right. Ive collected coins since I was little kid. Happy New Year.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! And I LOVE the stickers! They are so cute. I know what you mean about the cold weather warnings. In New Mexico we have such mild winters so when we get a cold weather warning it just seems silly. Have a great New Year!
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty gold card!! I loved it and the cute note you wrote! And you are so sweet to have read my profile and added those cool stickers! I can't wait to use them. :) We had a little parade of sorts made of a procession of 150 ATV type vehicles - you know those big sand dune buggies - all decked out with Christmas lights and everything come through our neighborhood! It was very cool - and MUCH longer than we expected!!! Super fun! We also have been getting lots of rain, SO NICE! And especially welcome here in dry AZ. ;) I will have to try those PB cookies.... They sound so decadent!!! And I love peanut butter. :D Thanks again!
Response: You're welcome. Your parade sounds like so much fun! I would have loved to see that. Happy Holidays.
Comment: Thank you for the cute card and greeting. I didn't really do anything for Thanksgiving this year. The weather was too cold and roads were bad (light rain causing ice early in morning). I actually enjoyed not having to go anywhere.
Comment: Thank you for the washi-tape and I know how you feel about certain swaps it drives me crazy when people put washi-tape on paper like I know people are new but it's not that hard to put in on a playing card or something that can be removed easily to use
Comment: Thanks for the pretty sunset card, Dreena! I appreciate your doing the re-send as the original has not shown up. This one has a postmark date of 19NOV so I'm pretty confident it's the re-sent one.Your book "If You Tell" sounds way too sad for my tastes. :0(
Response: Thank you for being so nice and letting me know. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful handmade postalette! This is my new favorite thing to swap. I love how simple it is to make but looks very much nicer than a postcard. Sending you well wishes!
Response: I like them too. I think it would be fun to make a few and exchange some. Maybe a future swap.
Comment: Hello Dreena,
When I arrived at my sister's home in Connecticut your postcard you had colored for me was waiting for me. You did a beautiful job! It looks like you used colored pencils to bring color to the postcard. I am excited to add this postcard to my other colored postcards. You did a beautiful job, coloring!
Your Swap-bot Partner,
Response: Im glad you like it! Yes, it was colored pencils. The first time I did this swap I used what I thought was colored pencils but was water color pencils. That was interesting but I didn't send that one. It was still pretty.
Comment: Thank you for the tags and stamps and the cute card. And thank you for supporting Project Linus. We made and distributed over 600 blankets last year in our little county alone. It really feels like a worthwhile activity. I love it.
Comment: Thanks so much for the nice card, washi and nice note. My parents wintered in Florida and it was the same there. The max time was 2 weeks. As a grandmother raising grandchildrent, that is one thing that I wouldn't do.
Comment: WOW! Thank you so much for this incredible parcel ~ I am so excited to try out this painting with diamonds picture! I've seen this online and have always wanted to try it~ Wish me luck 🍀! Thank you again, i love it! Happy swapping 🌸 xoxo
Response: Im so happy you're excited. I was really hoping you'd like the diamond painting. Its considered a relaxing hobby.Have fun XOXO
Comment: I hope you neighbors dogs become more quieter for you I know the feeling my neighbors dogs are loud also and at times i want to scream because it's really annoying to hear them when I am trying to study for school
Comment: I enjoyed hearing about your weekend! I love diamond painting, too, and used to love TWD when it first came out. Hopefully it starts to cool down soon, we’re finally getting some cooler days here. Take care :)
Comment: I LOVE my Halloween card! Thank you so much and thank you for the goodies inside as well! This really made my day! Especially the mermaid and seahorse clips!! Squeee! Thank you so much! I’m stingy with my shaped paper clips, too - and these two are amazing!!!! ♥️
Response: Yay!!! I knew they would go to the right person! Enjoy.
Comment: hi! i got all of your things in the swap. i love the little note you gave me. also the postcard and the lovely lama stickers! most especially i love the washi tape samples. the washi tapes are lovely and cute and have never seen any like that before! love everything i have received. Thank you again Dreena x
Comment: You made my day!!! I came home to a shiny package and inside is THE cutest bag ever! Then even more goodies inside!! I LOVE everything!! Thank you so much for your generosity and being so thoughtful!! <3<3<3
Response: I was so hoping you'd like everything. It was fun putting all those goodies in there just for you. Enjoy.
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! I have never tried diamond painting and have always wanted to so I am very excited to create one ❤️😊 your package really brightened my day, I’ve been having a tough week and your package was such a treat to receive, I look forward to using the items to relax, I love the assortment you have put together. Thank you so much, very appreciative ❤️ Hugs!
Response: Im so glad it brought a smile! I love to diamond paint and share the craft. I hope you like it as much as I do. You're very welcome.
Comment: I hope you didn't get sick from that lady! And I hope that other lady didn't come back to play because there's no need to be rude! Thank you for that card! I will definitely have to check out your group! I'm excited!
Comment: Cute sparkly card. We are also having a bit of a heat wave. Water rationing began this week and the temp has been in the 103 F range for two weeks now. With the heat index it has felt like 111 F! Your snowman was a welcome sight. lol Thank you for the lovely teas.
Comment: Mahalo nui loa for the nice note and bonus flats! I loved reading that you enjoy Iz and danced Hula too! These tiny Stitch stickers are adorable and I am going to add them to my sticker book (that I still have from when I was in junior high school) reserved for just my faves!
Response: So glad you liked them. Wow! I have my Jr High grad book. Mahalo my new friend.
Comment: Thank you so much for the washi. It showed you read my profile and I appreciate that so much. As far as being on the beach 24/7....lol. It’s more like a couple hours a month, even though I live a 10 minute walk from the top beach in the world...just too much other stuff to do ❤️❤️😊
Comment: You touched very soul today!!! Tysvm!!!! Those box tops I actually save for a dear friend in Louisiana!!!! There church school had a flood about 2 years ago!!! So I save them for them!! I actually don't even tell my kids that is what I do with them ha ha.. But I support small church schools if I can. This seems to be the only way I can afford it!!! 💗💖💜💗💖💜
Response: Thats awesome! I sure will save them just for you. I will ask my friends and send them to you too. You host my favorite swaps. 💝
Comment: I am only rating this a 5 because the swap meets requirements and was a very lovely package once I got to open it. However got the rudest message from her stating I hadn’t rated her yet and she would not be participating in more swaps with me. Even though it has been a little over a week since I had received it,(had horrible damaging 111mph winds this last weekend and have been cleaning up all week)Was never sent a message asking if I had received or anything prior to this message. Not Nice At all next time send your partner a message first asking if they have received it or something, life happens.
Response: I sent you a message on June 15 giving you a tracking # because it was sent priority mail for $8 as a courtesy. You received the package on the 17th. On June 28th you were in Swap Bot but I hadn't heard from you. June 29 I sent my last message. I had sent you a diamond painting, special ordered some sewn pokemon paperclips, nice pieces of fabric and other things according to your profile. It was the most expensive swap I've sent and I doubt I'll ever bother again. A simple thank you instead of excuses and lies. I keep very good records of swaps,screenshots, receipts, and pics of what I send. If anyone needs to see my proof for future swaps, feel free to contact me. No one should sit on a swap for over 11 days when someone has gone out of their way and spent so much money. Thats rude.
Comment: I would've given you a heart but you never put your user name or real name on card and I had to do some back tracking to find out who even sent it. Still, it's a lovely card and too, great answers written for the truths and a lie swap! (I'll p.m. my answer to you about which i think it the lie.)
Response: Sorry. I must have missed it some how. Have a happy day!
Comment: Littleroo! Another beautiful swap. I love receiving mail from you :) Thank you so much for the washi (I love them all) and thank you for the stamps! I’ve reached my limit of postage for the month, so I will be putting them to good use! Thank you 💙
Response: I'm so glad you liked them. Hope to send to you again soon. :)
Comment: WOW!!! Your pillbox swap package was GREAT! I loved everything inside and you even had it in an extra large pillbox. You DEFINITELY deserve extra hearts! Thank you so much for the time you put into this for me!
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! I love to share, enjoy!
Comment: Little roo is so precious! If you give a mouse a cookie is one of my favorite childhood books, I can SO imagine roo being the little mouse!!! Thank you so much for sharing. :) I've sent you an email about my dog in response!
Response: I enjoyed reading aboutvyour dog. Thanks for responding.
Comment: I think you went above and beyond! I've always wanted to try one of those diamond paintings, so I really appreciate that. Have fun with swapping. Fun fact: I live about 15 minutes away from where they film a lot of TWD. We have gone down to "Woodbury" lots of times. (Senioa Georgia)
Response: Im so glad you liked your swap. I'm SO jealous! TWD lot!? That would be awesome. Hope to swap with you again some time.
