Comment: Hola Stephanie! What a beautiful card & envie. I love how you wrote the address! thank you! The stickers are amazing, thanks for sending those too. Ahh, I don't have any children, but still love looking at lights - I hope you have the best time! We like to find houses that have music with the lights, but really any lights are fun! Have a good time!
Comment: OMG!!!!!!!! I guess I have to admit that I opened this gift. I am absolutely floored! I had no idea there was any such thing as a Dragon Junk Journal crafting kit. This is sooo cool, I don't want to cut it up! Thank you for finding something so special for me. Mele Kalikimaka!
Response: Yay!!! I'm so glad you liked it :) I was hoping it was perfect for you. Enjoy!!!
Comment: Thanks! I'm not sure how many postcards i have, haha -- they're spread out into three photoboxes and divided into categories. Chocolate cream pie sounds amazing! My fav is pecan but I'm the only one in my house who eats it, so I don't get it often.
Comment: It was such a treat to find your envelope waiting in my mailbox this afternoon. Of course, I had to open it! Thank you for the multitude of thoughtful paper goodies. I’m eager to use them. Happy holidays to you and yours!
Comment: Thank you for all of the fun collage items and the post cards. They were very much my style. It is getting cold in Michigan. Earlier this week there was snow flurries, luckily today was 70 degrees for the high, but there won't be many more days like this!
Comment: Thanks for the card and stickers! How crazy you learned html to make a fan site! That’s cool though!
Merry Christmas! (You forgot to put the swap name but luckily I got my other partner’s card the same day so I recognized your name!)
Comment: I love the verse you picked out. I am always amazed at everything God created. :) It was hard for me to pick one but I kept coming back to the verse about God's promise to never flood the world.
Comment: Thanks so much for the box of goodies which arrived today! I can't wait to try everything - though I couldn't resist the crisps almost as soon as I opened the box :P weird how different a flavour can be from place to place, your cheese flavour crisps taste completely different to me! x
Response: Glad you liked it Emma!!! It is funny how flavors can be so different between countries! Hope you enjoy it! Thanks again for a great swap :)
Comment: Thanks for your mail. I really like it, especially the stickers🥰. Yes it is fall weather with a lot of rain in the Netherlands. Until 2 weeks ago it was still hot, but suddenly the weather changed and the . summer is definitely over....unfortunately 😔
Comment: Thank you so much for your answers. Time really does go by quickly. My children are grown, but I have 2 five year old grandchildren, a 7,9 and 11 year old. I keep looking at the 11 year old and can't believe she will soon be a teenager when she is still a little girl to me. Enjoy the little moments that each day brings.
Comment: It was a lovely surprise to receive your card in the mail today. I loved the mini notebook and bookmark. And your nice note and verse were very much appreciated. Good luck homeschooling. I love the homeschool way of life! Oliver said thanks for the stickers!
Comment: Dear Stepht, THANK YOU! You made my day! Loved all that you sent, especially the color maxims. One is going right by my front door. Welcome back, I'm just trying to make my own comeback. Can't believe how much I've missed it It is fun, isn't it? Hope we get to be partners again. 💙
Comment: Hello, Thank you for the lovely Christmas card and wonderful suprises - pc and beautiful bookmark with a very suitable quote for me: Listen - the quieter you become the more you can hear. I actually love the silence sometimes. Meditation can be very helpful with a lot of everyday affairs. It is warm in Poland (for the winter) - about 5 'C. Sometimes it's snowing, but snow melts very quickly. I still hope for the real, white winter. Happy New Year!
Comment: Lovely card, we have a tradition of going to my moms side for Christmas Eve then back to my momâ€™s to stay overnight and open presents/stockings there, after that we go have Christmas at my dads house or someoneâ€™s on that sideâ€™s house for â€˜dinnerâ€™ (late lunch lol).
Comment: Hi Steph! Oh!!!!! Thank you for the awsome package of goodies! I love the stickers and the flowers are going to be AWESOME for my journaling! And the box of chocolates could not have been any more perfect!! My grandfather used to get me a box of Whitman Sampler chocolates at Valentines Day every year. The one you sent is the first one I have had since he passed up. What a beautiful gift! I am going to save the little box as a keepsake! Thank you so much!!! xxoo Shannon
Comment: Thankyou Stephanie for your interesting letter, I enjoyed reading it. Thankyou for the nice photo of you and sister, Have a nice day, love Jennifer. Thankyou Stephanie for your nice letter, I enjoyed reading.
Response: Hi Jennifer!! Glad you liked it, there is more coming. You'll hear from me soon ;) Hugs
Comment: Thank you Stephanie for the lovely Easter gifts, I love the note book, the sweets look ice to eat. I enjoyed reading your letter, the verse card is nice. Have a very happy Easter with your family, with Blessings, Jennifer.
Comment: Thank you for all the easter treats! I'm always so happy to receive peanut butter chocolate. :D You asked about Finnish Easter traditions. Those mainly consist of eating "mÃ¤mmi", which is a dessert made of rye flour and malted rye eaten with cream and sugar & then there is children's tradition of "virpominen". It is a little bit like Halloween over there: kids dress up as Easter witches (a scarf tied under the chin, painted freckles and a colorful apron and a skirt -style witches :)) and go door to door to give decorated willow twigs to people. They then receive Easter candy and chocolate in their baskets or pots as a "payment". This tradition has its roots in a mixture of pagan spring tradition and religious Easter tradition.
Comment: Thank you for the generous package, Stepht! It's always a pleasure to swap with you. :-) My apologies for the terribly slow rating; I just realized it was missing. Thanks again for the sweet swap!
Comment: Just opening the box was already a treat. So beautiful. So far I have only unpacked one of the surprises and I'm very happy about it. I think I'll pace myself and do one a day for a week, so maybe I'll enjoy it seven times as much. Thanks :)
Response: Yay! Glad you are enjoying it. I hope you like the goodies :)
Comment: Hey Steph! What a great study! I have truly learned something new from everyone in this study. I loved your point that the helmet protects our head, so it protects our thoughts. I had not thought of it that way and I am thankful that you shared that with me. God sure does have a way to use our friends to help us keep growing and learning. Thanks for being a part of that for me!
Comment: I really like this study. Thank you for hosting it. :o) Thanks also for your email. This was really nice to do . . . to be able to share a study like this with other women in the group. I got a lot out of it for sure. :o) Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you very much. Hubby and I enjoyed having the candy as afternoon snacks, It is now a favorite of mine too! I couldn't possibly use the adorable notecard and the prayer that you wrote is right on time. I needed that. God so wonderful!
Comment: I finally got your package Stephanie...due to a postal strike and a postal black out of the computer system it was a real adventure to "rescue" it =P but oh joy..it really brought Christmas to us when we opened it. Everything is so deliciously Christmassy and there are some things I've never tried..now everything is under the Christmas tree..let's see how much it will last! Thanks so much! I send you and you family my best wishes for this winter holidays! Hugs
Response: Yay! So happy you liked it Marta :) Glad you were able to locate it, phew!! Enjoy! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hi Steph! I love seeing what we are all thankful for! Dancing with your daughter! I loved that part! Such sweet memories you both will have of that! I love the "pie" cupcakes! I think I might have to try those! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and dance!! :) Blessings to you!
Comment: Thanks SO much for the scripture verse! A very timely reminder indeed. I am going through a difficult situation and it seems my mind naturally wants to focus on the negative, but I remind myself of this verse and it seems God wanted to remind me (via a postcard swap) as well. :o) This was a great swap and I hope it runs again!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your e-mail! My husband's name is Paul too and my little bulldogs name is Zoey! Lots in common! I hope you can get to the beach more often! Thanks for all the fun swaps you have for us! It is fun to get to each other a bit!
Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful goodies that you included in this swap. I loved the stamped owl for sure. I enjoyed reading your letter and will answer it back in the next few weeks. I am having shoulder surgery in the next week. So I will be out of commission.
Response: Happy you liked it!! I hope your surgery goes smoothly, praying for quick healing for you. Write me when you are feeling better I look forward to it! :)
Comment: Hi Steph! Thank you so much for the heartfelt swap! Prov. 3:5-6 is also a favorite of mine! My grandmother would remind me of that one quite a bit!! :) All of the ones you wrote are so full of wisdom. It was good to go back and revisit them! Thank you so very much for your note. I love the sparklie stickers and super sparklie card!!
Comment: So that is what a anchovies look like! When I asked my husband to help (bad idea) he suggested "air" mail delivered on an "air"plane... Yes I did send a paper "airplane"! We have been practicing our flying skills. We have already started working on "B"
Comment: Thankyou Stephanie for your lovely letter, I enjoyed reading your letter. Thankyou Stephanie foe lovely photo of you and your little girl Zoey, l love the little card and the verses are so nice. My faith helps me in many ways. Love to you and your family with blessings Jennifer.
Comment: Thank you for a great, sweet package, Stephanie! The coconut white chocolate is *exactly* my style, and I love fruity, chewy candies too. The hazelnut chocolate is like a fancy Kit Kat, so yummy! We don't have that grocery store here, so I appreciate you sharing the tasty chocolates. Happy Valentine's Day!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely email. It was great getting to know you better :) Congrats on your upcoming bundle of joy!! It's always awesome to meet a fellow baker; I feel like I could talk for ages about baking :D 2 Timothy 1:7 is one of my favourite verse too! God Bless!
Comment: Thank you for formatting your email. It really made your answers very easily understood, and I appreciate it a lot. Thank you for your answers. It made me understood the verses more, especially the last part.
And I'm hoping that you'll have a healthy delivery, and for your bundle of joy to grow up sharing Christ's word. God bless!
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful notecard and cat stickers. Sorry to see that things have been a little blah in the friendship department but just remember that Jesus is a friend that sticks closer to you than a brother :-) Congratulations to you and your husband on your little bundle of joy that will be arriving soon. Zoey Grace is a beautiful name to have picked out for the little princess :-)
Response: Glad you liked it! Amen, that is so true that I have Jesus :) When I consider that, the other stuff doesn't matter. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Dear Stephanie, thanks so much for the lovely package. I received it earlier this week and everything is almost already gone =P I especially loved the hearts candies because you always see them in images/movies etc but I had never had a chance to taste them before..Thanks so much !!
Comment: Thank you for the cool halloween candy, can't wait to try them ! (I never had these before ;)
Response: Yay, hope you will enjoy them! - Actually, I think we know each other from a very long time ago :) We did some swaps - you sent me labels and I sent you ziplocks. I went by Stephanie Roberts and lived in MA. Anyways, I was thinking of that earlier and wondering, and found an old email from you! Good to see you on here!!!!
Comment: Thanks for the Tampa PC and for sharing your story with me. I understand completely about needing to set a specific time. Otherwise.... I'm praying with you. Packing and unpacking can be sooooo frustrating!
Comment: Hello Steph :)
Thank you for organizing this swap. It was fun! Your rating comment was so heartwarming that it motivated me to pursue silk screen printing. Oh, and I'm interested in being penpals. It would be fun :)
Comment: Thank-you!! I love the card and your note and the delightful embellishments you sent! I've done Beth Moore studies before.They are in depth with lots of homework ! She's a wonderful speaker and teacher,though-enjoy!
Response: You're welcome!! I'm glad you liked the stuff I sent. I'm enjoying the Bible Study but I'm a bit behind - her stuff is so intense!
Comment: I got your package today Stephanie and I really LOVE it! My boyfriend is super happy about the Reese Heart =D so we will share it later and since I love lollipops I couldn't have been happier with the rose. Thanks a lot for the thoughtful swap! =D
Response: You're welcome dear! I'm really happy you liked the package. Sorry I'm a little late responding! When I saw the lollipop I thought that was too cool not to "pick" for the swap! ;) Glad it arrived it once piece! Hugs!
Comment: Thank you so much for sending me 3 candy bars - the new Ghirardelli milk & strawberry one looks absolutely delicious. I really liked your nice Anna Griffin Merry Christmas card. Have a Merry Christmas yourself!!
Response: Glad you enjoyed it!!! Thanks for the heart, Merry Christmas!!!
Comment: Philippians 4:6 (The Message)
6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Comment: Your request is printed so that I am reminded. Your job reminds me of mine, I started in October and there were so many new things to learn before the Christmas rush, so when I go to work I'll be reminded of your request.
Comment: Thanx for sharing about you and your life! You are a very beautiful person and sound really awesome. My only advice for renting/buying a house is to not jump into something that you don't think you're ready for. Good luck! :]
Response: Aww thank you! Yeah, I definitely think we're not ready for it, so we're just going to look for another place to rent. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for making my day! Cooling the chocolate down in the fridge before we tuck in! Looking forward to the drinks too. Thank you very much for swapping and hope we can do it again some day
Response: Yay! Glad it arrived safely and you love it :) I know it's getting hot now, hopefully it still tastes good! Maybe we can do another swap again in the fall? Thanks for the heart!! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the comments. I needed the boost to my self confidence I am starting to stress out a bit about the craft fairs. I think I probably have another yard of that fabric. After the craft fairs are over I can make one just for you.
Response: You're welcome! Have a great time at the fair and don't stress out, you'll do great! Thanks for the heart :)
