Comment: We found each other again in a swap! I LOVE The Office and I am so glad you are watching it with your husband. It was the first show my husband and I binged together. I had never seen it, and I was hooked. Especially around season 2 when the real characters start coming out. We've binged so many, but my favorites are assorted- Breaking Bad is a must watch, Dexter is ok for a couple seasons and then gets dumb (But I highly recommend it until John Lithgow goes off), Fraiser is one of my all time favorites. We recently watched Nurse Jackie. I think you would like that since you like Grey's. (I need to finish Grey's, I got to where Denny died and couldn't watch anymore, I'm horrible with that. I don't want to watch all of The Walking Dead because I don't want my favorites to go)Also, Parenthood! I cannot recommend that one enough! It's a tear jerker like This is Us but so wonderful.
Comment: I really don't think I'm much better at gardening. I grew some tomatoes last year and they're starting to bud again, so we'll see how that goes. There are flowers growing in one of my large pots that I planted so long ago and nothing ever came of them that I have forgotten what they were! So, that will be a fun surprise when they bloom. Good luck with your garden. :D
Comment: Thank you for the nice note cards you sent. I love that they all match. Thanks for the goodies as well. Grayson loves getting swaps out of the mail box...especially if they are addressed to him - hahaha! I try to join any swaps that he can participate in with me. He loves the Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween & Christmas card swaps the best b/c we always get lots of cards. He just had a birthday too & lots of our Swapbot friends sent him cards & goodies. It really made him happy. Thanks again for the great swap! Take care.
Comment: Lovely to hear from you again! And you always send such fun extras. Thank you! Had to laugh about your Black Thumb... when it dies in my garden, I just go and buy another start and keep my fingers crossed! :)
Comment: Ty for the note and goodies! My tips: The seed starters at Walmart (or Lowes, etc). I have used them in the past. Also, head to Burpee's website and look up what thrives in your area. I did Cucumbers, radishes (grow from seed to harvest in like 4-6 weeks), green beans and misc flowers. I don't have room where I live now, but may convince hubby to let me try something lol!
Comment: Thank you so much! I hear ya! We have had the wettest Spring that I can remember. I am ready for some warmer weather and SUNSHINE!! LOL. We do vinyls too! That's so cool! I hope you guys had an awesome day at the Zoo! --April (thanks for the goodies)
Comment: Thank you! I did get all 7 emails. Some went to my junk folder for some reason. I moved them to my inbox. That was very sweet. I love them all. I actually had some of them in my shopping cart. You've saved me that task.
Comment: Thank you again for the recipes. I'm not very familiar with cumin to be honest. Probably because I associate it with spicy food like indian food or chili. I can't eat spicy food so I've never thought of trying it. I'll have to try these recipes for my husband. He will like them :)
Comment: WOW AND MORE WOW AND WOW SOME MORE!!! The homemade towels you sent were so awesome!. I cant wait to put the spring one out for Easter. The jewelry was such a great surprise. Very very nice. I will wear it Easter! What an awesome swap you blessed me with. Thank you and Happy Easter
Comment: Thanks for the cute card! We're actually going to the zoo this weekend too. We're lucky to have a very nice zoo here and we try to go as often as possible when the weather is nice. Happy Easter!
Comment: Thanks for the swap! I think the notes is a wonderful idea. First I’m going to copy them and post around my house! Love the Paris card too. Your hand tired from writing all those cards? Happy crafting!
Comment: The recipe for the brown sugar italian chicken totally intrigues me and I can't wait to try it. The two tastes sound opposite to me so I am curious how they will combine. :) Also, thank you for the stir-fry recipe. I love this type of food but never are brave enough to try to make it myself. I always get take out. hahaha I think I will give this one a try too.
Comment: I loved opening your envelope, I really like the idea of the post it notes. I my father recently passed away and I have been struggling, I think I want to make random little happy notes to stick in my bullet journal to come across randomly. I am going to spread post it note joy around my town and work =) thank you for sharing a great idea!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty note card and the extras. Did you get any snow ? We've been in the 40's and people are driving around with their car window down. I opened a window to get some fresh air in the house. Our town has a parade and a pub crawl for St. Patrick's Day. Thanks again.
Comment: I am so overwhelmed with how much I love everything you sent! The scarf is beautiful and I have no words for the tote bag...I love it SO much! I will feel so blingy taking my mail to the p.o. from now on. The dog mom keychain and coozie are just perfect as well. Thank you times a million!
Comment: Such a lovely swap from you. Thank you...I love the kindness that flowed right out of it as I opened your envelope:) The card, your note, the little envelopes and sweet cat stickers💕 And I definitely will spread your little notes around my town! Happiness in Swapping and all things...
Comment: Thank you so much for the note and extras. Glad your weather has turned to spring. We are currently looking at getting snow tonight/tomorrow. We have had spring and are finally getting winter LOL! Have a great week!
Comment: Absolutely love your swap! I was already late for my appointment when I heard the mailman and when I saw the lovely envelope I just had to open it hahah. Thank you so much! <3 (I wanted to rate you way earlier but I think someting went wrong while saving te rating.. I'm so so sorry about that!!!)
Comment: Love Love Love the cute little note card, Blair. Adorbs! I'm hoping that you are back to full strength and are well rested. The flu has been SERIOUS out here --- lots of deaths, especially children.
Comment: Thank you for the note and the extras. I love to watch, Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon with my husband. We also watch The Blacklist and Elementary. I watch the NCIS franchise, Criminal Minds, and Counterpart.
Comment: Hope you're feeling better! Thanks for the stickers. I used to live in New Bern, just a hop, skip, and jump away from Kinston! What do I do when I'm sick? Sleep sleep sleep, get up and drink hot tea, and then go back to sleep. :)
Comment: Thank you for the great swap! I loved it! Glad you and your hubby were able to celebrate it together! I worked. I drive for Lyft, so I was busy driving people around. Made pretty good money. I don't have a bf right now, hope to in the near future though. Happy swapping to you.....
Comment: thank you for your note, it sounds like you had a fun weekend. HAHA I opened the envelope and Owls were escaping everywhere but I rounded them up. So cute. and I love the cute address labels I have been using a lot of them lately so very handy.
Comment: This swap was so much fun-it is fun to get lots of "stuff". And the stuff you sent was great-so varied and interesting. Thanks for sharing with me. Happy Swapping! (Love the butterfly card you sent it in,too!)
Comment: Thank you for helping stuff my mailbox and for all the fun Valentine bits and the lovely note. My favorite thing about SB is sending out happy mail. I enjoy putting little things together in hopes it'll brighten the postman and the recipients day.
Comment: hello Blair -- thanks for the envelope of fun stuff, including a puzzle! I really enjoy swap-bot, it's a great way to de-clutter all the stuff I've accumulated, and who doesn't love to come home to real mail. I also love seeing the stack of mail I've prepared to go out -- colorful envelopes, postcards, fun stamps, etc. I really do love MAIL. Best, al
Comment: Oh Blair what a wonderful swap. I just love â¤ï¸ love the scarf. I have so many purple things it will go with and so delicate looking. I will be sure to show it off! All the little goodies is the cherry!
Thank you soooo much. I hope you get that store too!
Comment: Thank you for the recipes you sent. I am extremely picky when it comes to eating, too! I like that you sent bonus recipes that weren't a requirement. That was really nice. Also, thank you once again for the homemade labels and stickers.
Comment: HI Blair!
Wow what awesomeness! I love these leggings they are wicked cool!! I will do exactly that! I will bring them with me to my infusion (this friday) and give them to one of the new chemo patients! There's NOTHING better than being cozy and comfortable when getting an infusion! Thank you for letting me spread some smiles!! xoxoxoxo
Hugs and have a happy day!!
Response: Aww, that is fantastic! Thank you for helping me spread the love all the way in NJ! :) I hope someone will love them!
Comment: Thank you so much for the package of goodies for this swap. I love the Tim Holtz stuff and the washi tape, along with the stickers and stamp set. The Clint Eastwood movies will be enjoyed by my husband as well as myself. Thank you so much!!
Comment: Thank you for the nice items! I won't use the scarf myself, but I like the pattern and I will give it so someone who can use it. Did you make the bracelet yourself as well? The extras for journaling are great, too.
Response: Thank you very much! I'm sorry you aren't able to use the scarf, but I hope you can give it to someone that will get good use out of it. Yes, I made the bracelet. My friend and I just did a craft show this past weekend and they were a HUGE hit!
Comment: Blair: Loved your card & all the xtra goodies you sent to me, thank you. But what moved me to tears (litterally) was that your friend & her family lost everything, including their dogs to a fire recently. This just broke my heart. I lost 2 of my favorite dogs this year as well, but not as tragically or suddenly as they did. You and I need to brainstorm together & start a swap related to this poor, poor, family. PM me if you are interested ok? If not, no hard feelings and thank you for an awesome swap!
Response: It is so sad, especially right here at the holiday's. They had already bought some Christmas presents that they lost. No time is ever good, but it's a little harder right now. I would love to think of something swap related that we could do for them...I'm not sure what...let's think about it!
Comment: Right when I opened this, I knew it was for this swap. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and put effort into it :) I appreciate it greatly! I love love love everything that you included. Especially the anchor bracelete!
Comment: That's really awesome that you got Nicholas Sparks autograph. I love the note and the flat goodies. I am recovering better now after a couple of set backs. I haven't watched too many movies during it but I have watched way too much tv that I needed to catch up on. Thanks for the happy mail :)
Comment: Hi Blair, I loved this swap, like you I would love to help anyone brighten their day even just a little! I have never found a note like this. Have you? I already left a couple of yours at a store and at Pizza HUt. I plan to leave some at our local hospital, and my church. Thanks for the great notes and thanks so much for the extras!! I really like the Christian stickers!
Comment: Thanks so much Blair, you definitely put a smile on my face! You sound like a great person give a home to those fur babies. I love everything you including (ALWAYS on the hunt for airmail envies..!) especially the notes for strangers. I'd love to do a swap with you anything, just message me! â™¥
Comment: I love your idea about notes for strangers. I will pass on the two you sent and also borrow your idea and do some myself. The little cat stickers are great. The list cards satisfy my list loving self. Thank you so much for sending such interesting things!
Comment: Blair, thank you for the beautiful card [with the yellow goldfinch on the front of it and for the sweet note and the extras you enclosed.
Because of the cool pic on the front, the card will be going into my Smashbook and the things you printed off will be perfect to put in my Smashbook as well. If I could give you more than one heart, I certainly would, you totally made my day. Thank you so much! : )
Comment: Blair,what a beautiful job on the plate and apron.Thank you so much for taking the time to make 2 detailed pieces! I love them,and will display the plate,with that wonderful verse. I will wear my apron,and think of you! : )
Comment: I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ribbon!!! Thank you so much! I came in pretty purple organza bags (my favorite color) and they are just so pretty! Can't wait to use them! I'd give you extra hearts for this!!! You made my week!!!
Comment: Thanks for the re-send. The cat cards and stickers are cute. Thank you also for sending me some of your handmade typewriter stickers; I'm going to use them on my pen pal correspondence. What a lovely mail day it was!
Comment: Hi Blair,
Thanks so much for the nice note cards, and the adorable stickers!! I plan to use the stickers on ATC's, they are just the right size! I also enjoyed hearing about Alley and Oli. Now that are children are grown , we also enjoy our furry children!! LOL
Comment: Thank you for the nice summer banner. How great that it is laminated so I can use it over and over. I'll be taking it to the coast for our 4th of July week. I love the magnets, too.
Response: Aww YAY! I'm so excited that you liked the banner I made! I wasn't really sure where to go with it, but I was hoping you would like it! I figured with it being laminated, you could re-use it but also use it outdoors (in case it rained).
Comment: Just perfection! Thank you so much for a lovely combination of pins, I can't even remember if I had "Thunderstorms are Amazing" on my favorites, but I love it to bits! My absolute favorite is the blue skies pin with the traveling quote on it, thank you so much! If you're ever looking for someone to do a private etsy swap with, let me know :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable zippered pouch and goodies! I have been playing with the stickers and making random patterns out of them and re arranging the magnets on the file cabinet LOL. This has delayed your rating for about 15 minutes *hangs head* Thank you very much for the goodies!
Comment: I so enjoyed this lovely package! The glass painting is beautiful - I love the subtle texture of the initial on the glass, and the design of the candle holder is perfect. I will also very much enjoy the paper cards and envelopes you made. Thanks for a marvelous swap package!
Comment: Blair thank you for the notes. I will put them to good use! Great swap for encouraging someone that God will place in my path.
Response: I just LOVE this swap! Not only do I enjoy putting it together for someone, but I enjoy receiving what they send and putting the notes out into the world! I will definitely continue this swap in the future! :)
Comment: Thank you for a lovely swap! The pen is awesome! I had to try it at once, and wow... where has this been all my life? And the ornament is sooo cute =) We don't have ornaments like that here in Norway at all for some reason...
Response: Haha...it is my current favorite pen, so I was excited to share it with someone new. :P Glad you liked the swap, thank you for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: I was not expecting a package by UPS. Imagine my surprise when the uniformed man handed me a printer cartridge box. Confusion, yes. And then I opened it...the cute bag, the scarf, the coasters! Drool worthy...so very generous...and now I am headed over to your shop...thank you so much!
Response: Aww! I'm so glad that you liked everything you received! :) Thank you for the lovely rating - happy swapping!

Comment: AMAZING envie full of goodness! I was beyond elated when this arrived today. You clearly put so such thought and love into this and it is definitely appreciated! I love the coffee stickers... they will be put to good use in my art journals and in my coffee zines. The address labels you personalized are wonderful, the smash book papers are awesome and note card is so cute. ANYTIME you want to do a private swap, I would be HONORED!!! Thanks so much!!
Response: Yay, I'm glad you loved everything! I saw how much you loved coffee, and I didn't have any coffee graphics, so I went on the hunt for them. :) I hope that the stickers will come in handy with your creative ventures! Glad that you loved everything, and I hope to swap with you again in the near future! :)
Comment: Thank-you so much for the cute address labels you made for me, stickers and note cards. I appreciate the time and effort that you have put into making them. You certainly made my day. I'd been wanting some address labels for a while :)
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating! I always try to do something a little extra special with swaps, so I'm glad you enjoyed it! Happy swapping!
Comment: Yay, thank you so much for the fun swap! You sure have a talent with making stickers and whatnot :) It was so cool to get the personalized labels, and I really like the other stickers and the card, too! Boy, your "business card" type of thing is really cool - maybe I will have to get some made for myself! Thank you again :)
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating, I'm glad you loved everything! Hope to swap with you again in the future!
Comment: Thank you for your list! I'm really going to have to increase the amount of good karma I put out there I think!! Spring resolution :)
Also I love your name, my barbie doll was called Blair when I was a little girl :) xxx
Response: I agree with you, I'm going to do the same to put more good karma into the world. How neat that you have a Barbie doll named Blair! It was such an uncommon name growing up, and I didn't like it because I could never find little trinkets with my name on it! Haha! Thanks for the rating!
What a wonderful swap. Everything was awesome...but truth be told...your great note was what made me smile. It was as though we were friends and I wanted to write you a chatty letter back. My favorite swaps are match boxes, zentangles, postcards...I love it all really. Hope to swap again. Thank you. PS, love those wee stickers, soo cute.
Response: I'm so glad to hear that you liked everything, Michelle. I enjoyed reading your profile and picking out (and making) some items I thought you would like. Feel free to write me a chatty letter back if you would like - I love writing! Thank you for your quick rating, and I do hope we can swap again in the future.
Comment: It was so lovely to get your letter, thank you! I LOVE your stickers, they're so great! Got the ones I ordered from your etsy shop today too. :) The arrow stickers were a great bonus, thank you! Sending you a pm now cause I think this rating is getting a little epic, ha ha!
Response: So glad that you liked everything! I had fun looking through your profile, and when I saw you liked arrows, I had to find some clipart to make some arrow stickers! I was hoping you would like everything! I'll be responding to your message! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Omg i love it all!!! =) Your package made my day- Thank you so much for all these goodies, i hope we get to swap again so i could spoil you too! A super duper Fat heart for you!!!!!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you liked everything I put together for you! We have similar tastes, so it's almost like I was shopping for myself. :) I have bought many Smash goodies, but I use them mostly in journals and penpal letters...I have yet to delve into the addiction of Smash books! :) I'm always open to a private swap, if you want to do one in the future. Thank you for your quick rating and happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for your lovely card and your fab message. All the extra bits are lovely too - especially those handmade stickers! Thank you.
Response: Thanks so much for your lovely rating! I enjoy doing the stickers, I sell them in my Etsy shop. I browsed through your profile in an effort to try to find some that you might like. :) Happy swapping to you, Rachel.
Comment: Wow, Blair!! I wish I could give you ten (or even more) hearts for this swap. The card and your nice message is great, but I must also say a BIG thank you for all the extras. You most definitely outdid yourself, and I'm THRILLED you were my partner. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Happy Swapping! :)
Response: Aww, thank you so much for the kind message! I like to put a little bit of love into all of my swaps, and make them something I would like to receive! I'm glad you liked everything and I hope to swap with you again in the future!
Comment: Thank you for the christmas card and all the extra's. I am going to try the recipe this week and take it to our gift exchange at work. That's if I can find the honey nut cream cheese,( I've never heard of it). Merry christmas!

Comment: First I love your information card. Its such a great idea. Dave (my bf) loves your recipe. He wants me to make them ASAP.
Response: The swap cards are so convenient! I ordered them from Vistaprint.com. You can usually get the business cards in any design free, you just have to pay shipping. :) You can also find good deals on cute return address labels for swapping! I hope you enjoy the recipe! Merry Christmas to you two! :D
Comment: Thank you for the recipe (LOVE ginger cookies) and the beautiful card. I hope your Christmas is blessed and your new year is healthy and happy.

Comment: Ahhh!! I can't stop smiling, thank you SO much for the great letter and the extra goodies! (I feel so spoiled!) It's funny, I wasn't looking for new pen pals either but a few sentences in to your letter I thought "I wanna be friends with this girl! I hope that doesn't sound creepy."...haha I wish I had the option to give you more than one heart :] Thanks again!!

Response: I'm glad you received it! I was reading a news story on CNN and it showed that your town had flooding from Hurricane Irene. I was worried that it might get lost somewhere. I hope you didn't have any damage from the storm and rain!
Comment: Hey Blair! I am going to assume the bloody knives are from you!! They didn't come with a note but all my other Etsy swaps came in with notes so its got to be from you!!! You have no idea how much I NEEDED these!!! Thanks so very much!! (if these weren't from you, please let me know via PM because I still don't get any emails from this site) ♥

Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful rating. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the swap and I hope you can put everything to good use! Happy Monday!
Comment: sorry it took me a while to rate but I wanted to make sure I really sat and read through the whole thing before I did...and tonight was the night :)
your story about your family and minute to win it cracked me up and when my mom was watching the show last week I thought of you, they were doing some crazy things
and your gingerbread house looked like the one and only one I've made...it was a HOT MESS, I just couldn't get the pieces stuck together ect...but it was sure fun to make :)
thanks for the fun journal I am sure I will do some of the activities while I am here at work
hope you have a good rest of the week...only 8 more minutes of Monday left!
Comment: Got the gift card today - thanks so much! And thanks for all the little extras you included - they are very cute! My husband says that the Lowe's gift card will be put towards a new water softener that we have been needing for quite some time. I will get your cartridges packaged up today and mailed out in the next two days - thanks again for trading with me!
Comment: Thank you for the fantastic package! Funny story: My cat kept crawling in my lap when I was trying to open the package. I kept pushing her away and telling her that it was not for her. As soon as I got it open, she stuck her head in the envelope and pulled out the mouse toy and ran off with it! She absolutely loves it! I also love all of the wonderful goodies for me :-D Thanks again!
Comment: I would give you more hearts if I could. You out alot of thought into what you sent and it's truly appreciated. Thanks so much. This was the best car I got all season. Hope you had a great Xmas!!!!
Comment: Oh my gosh Blair, I wish I could give you 5 hearts for this wonderful package!!!! Andrew was around when I opened it and he is now GLUED to the book with the buttons that make sound. That is him to a T and he says thanks :) And the bathsalts are perfect!!! And the gift card? Adorable! It was just all too good, thank you so much for such a wonderful package!!!!! <3
Comment: Thanks so much for all the lovely blue things! The little crocheted mat (?) was immediately spied and snatched up by my mum, who now has it on display on a shelf by her bed (she keeps little trinkets she loves here). :D All the handmade stuff was really thoughtful (and I was surprised at how perfect the envelopes you made were - which I've PMed you about!), so thank you very much! :)
Comment: I'm sure you get this all the time - but that crocheted dishcloth is almost too nice to use! It's dressing up my kitchen atm, and the scarf went straight on top of my beige wool winter coat - such a pretty rich green colour! I also appreciated the little card extras - so thoughtful and attractive, and who can't use swapbot rating cards? Wonderful! Thanks so much for making a sleety grey day here much brighter. Hugs from Korea, J

Great swap!:)

Comment: OMG!!! I love the stuff you sent! Thank you so much for the beautiful patterns! They are right up my alley and those PCs are amazing! What was really neat is my mom and dad went to the Badlands a few years ago and this was not a postcard they brought back!!! ;)
Response: Yay! I'm glad that you liked the things that I sent. :) If you end up using those patterns, let me know how they are! How ironic that I sent you a postcard from somewhere that your parents went. :) Thank you for the quick rating.

Response: I'm so glad you liked the package I put together for you, Sharlene. I always try to put something special together, but anytime I see someone with such great ratings like you, I try to do a little something extra. :) I'm glad you enjoyed everything! I have some of those extra swap cards laying around, so if you run out and need more, let me know! Thanks again for the wonderful rating!
Comment: Thanks for the nice newsy letter. I will try to write back to you, but don't hold your breath for how soon it will be. :) And thanks for all the little extra goodies you included. Awesome! I apologize for not rating sooner, I got behind in my ratings, which I don't usually let happen. I hope you understand.
Comment: Blair--I always like being your swap partner--you always send such nice packages. Love ALL the pretty envelopes. What a cute matchbook notepad. Like the stamped tags and cards AND the swap cards and envelopes!! Great Job!! Thanks so much.
Response: I'm so glad that you liked everything I sent! :) Thank you for the quick rating!
Comment: You are a woman after my heart...thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful paper crafted items and the cards. I just LOVE all of them and now I want to be just like you when I grow UP. I admire your talent.
Response: Yay, thanks for the sweet rating! I hope you enjoy the goodies I made for you and you can use them in the future!
Comment: thank you so much for all the goodies! Dottie loves them all! she spent the last hour chewing on the nylabone, and batting and nibbling on the mice. she will enjoy the treats over the next few days. :) thank you for spoiling my little fur baby! :)
Response: Yay, so glad you liked everything! I figured I'd get her a little something for the cat in her, and wanted to get her some doggy stuff too. :) I hope she enjoys it all!
Comment: I.... I.... I can't even begin to tell you how happy your package made me. It was SO special! And the card with the dogs? PERFECT! You read me like a book Blair, I'm SO happy we are penpals and I am going to try to do my best to send back an equally cool package along with your letter and 20 postcards :)
Response: Yay! I'm so glad that you liked everything! I really did buy a good bit more, I guess I forgot how small the box was..haha. I went shopping for stuff Tuesday night and everything. :P I'll send some in the future. I can't wait to hear back from you!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great envies! I love the colors! The map postcard is cool, too! I've read through your letter and will write back soon. Hang in there and please keep me posted as to the news, okay? Hugs to you!
Comment: Thank you so much:) I loved everything. The swap cards are my fave. They are beautiful. Thank you again.
Response: I'm so glad that you liked everything. Your profile is so cute and well filled out, I love getting a partner like you. I'd rather have you in a profile suprise swap or something with higher value, I think you'd be fun to send to. :) Thanks for the quick rating!
Comment: Thank you soo much. I really love love love the coasters. The colors are perfect. Thank you soo much. And thank you for the extras. The cards for ratings are a great idea and the envelopes are the perfect size and thank you for the stickers. You're right. No craft store makes these way more valuable. Thank you.
Response: Aww, I'm so glad that you liked them! Thank you for rating me so quickly..I hope the coasters come in good use!
Comment: Blair! You so rock!!! "Frankenfurter its all over, your mission is a failure, your lifestyles too extreme.." I LOVE TIM CURRY!!! Thanks so much for choosing this, I put it on right away and am going to wear my Rocky Horror Picture Show outfit out tonight for my bf and I's anniversary!!! The necklace is very well made too. However, do mention to the seller that sending it in a regular envelope is not a good idea. The necklace was hanging half out of the envelope. Since it was shipped in a regular envelope she cheated you on shipping too :( I know its not your fault, just leave an appropriate rating! So many hearts for you darlin!!! ♥
Response: I'm so glad that you like what I picked out for you! I will definitely let the seller know about the shipping. I've seen a couple of people do that, trying to make a little profit off what they charge for shipping, and what they actually pay for shipping. I'm glad you are happy with the necklace though! :)
Comment: Thank you for all the great postcards. My favorite are the Las Vegas cards. I have watched the volcano in front of the Mirage several time from the exact area pictured. I also love the extra cards you sent. They will make great swap cards.
Comment: What an adorable Christmas card - I love it! ~ Thank you so much - and - Super thanks for all the amazing extras you enclosed - I am going to give that Dear Santa stationery to my little nephew, immediately. He'll love it. Thank you again, for everything! A super very Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Response: Aww, I'm so glad you enjoyed everything! Those 'Letters To Santa' stationery were so cute, I couldn't pass them up! I hope your nephew can fill the page. :) Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you so much for the very cute Christmas card Blair! Thank you so much for thinking of my kids with the special "letter to Santa" paper, envelope and stickers. They are going to **love** using it. I hope you have a fantastic Christmas season as well! :-)
Comment: I got my pkg and I am trying to be a very good girl and not unwrap anything til Christmas. Not sure if I will be able to hold out though. LOL. But I did open the card and thank so much for the beautiful address labels that you sent. And the card is very cute too. So I am just rating you that I received it, but I haven't peeked at anything yet. Happy holidays to you!
Response: Well I hope you enjoy all the goodies I sent to you! I did the same thing, I didn't want to peek at much either. Thank you for the rating, and I'm glad you received this so quickly!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a great journal swap! I love your journal! You put so much of yourself in to the pages! You rock! Hugs!
Response: I'm so glad that you like it. I had a fun time doing it, and thought of some new things to write about. It's easy when it's someone I kind of know, rather than some stranger I got paired with. :) Glad it got there so quickly, and I hope you have fun reading it!
Comment: WOW! I wish all of my xmas cards contained the kind of goodies you sent me! I am just thrilled. I put up the card and made the cocoa and wished I had a tree up already. Thanks so much! You RAWK!!
Comment: Thanks so much for a wonderful variety. Something we lack in our outgoing cards so some of these will be good for that BUT Victoria claimed the cat and the puppies for her collection and I claimed the 3 three from Greece and Belgium. LOVED THEM and thanks for the extra's.
I think I will host these envie swaps more often !!!
Comment: OMG OMG OMG How cool are you! Thank you - I love them. Popeye and his gal. You are the greatest. Know what I'm gonna be doing!
Response: Yay! I started to get you one of these, and then something from another shop so you would have different things...but these two go together, I figured you might want to make them! :) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Blair. Thanks for the great sounding recipes. I will try the Chicken Nachos when my grandsons come as they love nachos. The Mongolian beef sounds delicous. I love Chinese food so am sure I will like this.
The applesauce would be a simple dessert to make for Christmas
Thanks for the extra blank recipe cards.
Comment: Lovely Lovely package - sorry for rating late - I thought I had done already. Everything in the parcel was really lovely and I'm so glad that we could enjoy swapping and support a very worthy cause at the same time!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful purple ornaments!! Both of them are gorgeous - the painted glass ball and the wreath with purple ribbons and sparkly pinecones. I can't wait until Christmas so I can put them on my tree!!
Response: Yay, I'm so glad they arrived safely! I hope you will enjoy them this holiday season. Thank you so much for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the recipes. All 3 are sure to be on my list this year, they all sound so good. I give friends and family food gifts every year, these are perfect. Thanks for the recipe cards also.
Comment: Thanks so much for sending this - I really feel for you on both counts. And the way you packaged all of this was so cute and immaculate, I hated to disturb it! :)
PS: The postmark on the front of the envelope was Fayetteville - a town name that strikes fear into my heart - and all I could think was about the time we were bored on a roadtrip and stopped at the WIGS!! place. :) Oh god..
Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed what I sent! This was definitely one of my favorite swaps I've done..I loved being able to write these letters. :) Yah, Fayetteville is a big town in NC, I'm not suprised it went through there to get to you!
Response: Thanks for the rating! I've messaged the seller on Etsy in regards to the postage due. Hopefully they will be willing to send something to compensate you, and if not, I will leave them feedback accordingly! You might want to consider removing the seller from your favorites, if you have any others of hers favorited.
Comment: Blair, I love the recipes you sent! They sound yum-O! Also the blank recipe cards are appreciated! Love the one with a bite out of it! LOL! I'm glad you laminated the recipes, too. I'm a messy cook! Thanks, again!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fantastic pkg. I not only love everything but can use everything as well. My kids especially love that ice cream cone cookie cutter. Guess what I'm doing this weekend :)
Response: I hope you enjoy it all! Have fun making some ice cream shaped cookies! :)
Comment: This is one of those swaps i'm talkin' 'bout! lol WOW! thank you for the extra's, you sent such wonderful stuff if I could I would hug you and squeeze and you would see the smile on my face and think there was extra light in the room and so on...I think you get the idea...lol Deb
Comment: Yeah! Thanks so much for the lovely ornament--well two of them actually! Wonderful! This is my first Christmas in my new house and I can't wait to put up a tree!! Is October too early? :o)
Response: Aww! That is awesome! My husband and I had our first Christmas in our new home last year, so I know the excitement! I hope you enjoy the 2 ornaments, and that they will look great on your tree!
Comment: Thank you for the great recipes and all the extra cards! I especially love the stamped recipe card! Did you make that one? It's awesome! Now I want a recipe card stamp! Can't wait for your letter to arrive! Hugs!
Comment: Blair, thank you so much for the lovely swap! The cards were lovely (the cherry is my favorite but I like the blank blue one, cuz it can be customized.) I *love* the swap-bot sticker, where did you get it?
I also like the little quote in the envelope, as well as the Halloween stickers. Thank you very much!
Response: Yay..I'm glad you enjoyed the swap! The S-B stickers came from Etsy, I ordered them from a seller. :) Thank you for the rating!
Comment: When i got your envelope i got to excited, as if it was an early christmas present. Thank you so so much, I loved the recipe cards and the stick was super cute. I wish i could give you 12 hearts, one heart for everything you sent me. Thank you again...
Response: Aww! Well I'm so glad that you liked it all! :) Thank very much for the kind rating..I hope to swap with you in the future!
Comment: Hey Blair, thanks for the great swap and all the cool ideas you sent. Lots were similar to my own that I sent out. :) I liked the 'give a lottery ticket to a stranger' idea, that one was definitely something I hadn't thought of. Thanks for the extra notecards too. :) Oh, and the cute little swap-bot inchie was adorable.
Comment: OMG! I did receive the cat toys from you and I completely thought I had rated. So sorry. School is back in session and has my brain fried. Anyway, my cats loved the precious toys you sent. So well made. Thanks so much!!!
Comment: B, I got your fab journal this morning! I am having a great time reading it - thanks so much! Cole spied the cd right away - I wish you could see these two dancing their butts off! I want to write you a letter, would that be ok?
ps: We wrote about some of the same things :)
Response: Yes Amanda, I'd love to hear back from you in a letter..help yourself! I hope you enjoy reading through the journal, I had lots of fun doing it! Thanks for the rating!

Comment: Gah! Someone finally put "Livin' La Vida Loca" on a CD! Haha, I've been debating whether to buy on on iTunes 'cause I heard it the other day and went "OMG I NEED THIS SONG NOW" (That's what most of my iTunes money is spent, on nostalgia). Thanks so much for the postcards, and I will definitely enjoy this CD. Putting your CD in the mail Monday.
Response: Hehe! Well I'm glad you got a song you wanted! I have the cd and imported it into my iTunes library just to add those 2 songs to the cd. :) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I absolutely loved my package! Everything in it was wonderful. I really liked the handmade bookmarks and bookplates. They were a very nice touch! And thank you for the pencil case - I have needed one for quite some time now. I really appreciate the time you put into finding the items! =)
Response: Well I'm glad that you enjoyed what I sent! Thank you for the rating. :)

Comment: oh, i've been such a slacker in not rating you for this swap and i apologize! your recipe cards are unique and i love collecting (and sometimes redistributing!) all the interesting ones i get in swaps (i'm not sure many of yours LEAVE my house though, i think many end up in my recipe box :) THANKS!!

Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Journaling is one of my favorite activies, so I enjoyed being able to talk about it!
Comment: Blair, thank you for sharing with me. :) I hope that Rachel (or Frank) doesn't delete Cheryl's profile. I really like seeing her icon in my list of friends. She will truly be missed. Blessings, Gypsy
Response: Yes, I enjoy seeing her in my friends list as well. :)
Comment: What a truly wonderful package! I loved everything you sent and loved that you included my furbabies in with the swap...so very sweet! Also, thank-you for the extras..I will have to hide the CD from my girls as they love Adam and if they get a hold of it, I'll never see it again! =)) Thank-you again for such a nice swap package!
Response: So glad that you liked it! I hope you (and your furbabies) enjoy everything! Maybe your kids won't steal the cd! :) Thanks for the rating!

Comment: Your cards are just gorgeous! Thank you heaps! I truly love them, and the extra card was an unexpected, but lovely, treat. I already have someone in mind to send it to, however I might need to have my roomate pry it out of my greedy grasp....
Response: So glad that you liked them! Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Blair, Oh my gosh what beautiful cards!!!! Thank you so much!!!! My maiden name is Hamilton and my sister's last name is Poole, my parents didn't give us middle names so when we got married we could use our maiden names so my sister's name is Gail Hamilton Poole...couldn't believe it when I saw your name! Lynnie
Response: Haha! How ironic! What a small world! :P Thank so much for the rating! I hope you enjoy the cards. :)

Response: Thank you for the rating! I hope you enjoy the cards!
Comment: Thank you for the ugly notecard. I certainly thought the one with the man walking on the road was ugly LOL. Thank you also for the cards that weren't your type and the "not so ugly" card you sent! I like them heehee, and already used one to write with. Thanks bunches for the swap!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked them all! Hope to swap with you in the future!

Blair: I recv'd the etsy wish items today. WOW, they are so pretty. I'm already creating something nice with them. Thank you so much for going that extra mile in our swap. You ROCK!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you received everything and enjoyed it! Those were just some smaller things, I hope you'll love what I purchased from Etsy! It shows they were shipped! I've never purchased from the seller, however I had something sent to me from her. :) Please let me know when they make it to you safely so I can leave her feedback.

Response: Aww, well I'm glad you liked it! I've been getting some crummy packages lately, so I feel your pain! Thank you for the rating, and I hope swaps get better for you!
Comment: I loved this package, I think you are one of my favorite swap partners ever!!! Not only did she send the cd, but two more as well :-)
Response: I'm glad you liked it dear! I love some old classics, and somehow a lot of my favorites got deleted, so I didn't have as many as I wanted. But I also love that Taylor Swift cd, it is really one of my favorite cds ever! I didn't know if you had it, but I figured it wouldn't hurt! This was my favorite cd swap. If you ever host anymore, let me know! :) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I can't wait to go through the cookbook! Hubby is gonna have fun cooking for us, LOL. I love the postcards! Thanks so much for a wonderful swap.

Comment: Thank you for your postcard. I'll try your recipe soon. Good luck with your marriage. Getting married in Las Vegas seems so much fun to me. Karen
PS: Those who send stamps with hearts definately deserve a heart, too!
Response: Thanks dear! I hope you enjoy the recipes!
Comment: Thank you, the recipes sound good,like you said but it was right at a month late and honestly I was looking forward to getting recipes that you had actually tried. I really hate giving a 3. There, I give you a 5, giving you the benefit of the doubt.
Response: Thank you for the rerate. I was in the process of letting you know I would email Rachel the screenshot. I would never flake on someone..especially an email swap. Thank you for the benefit of the doubt, and hopefully I will be able to swap with you in the future and make it up. :)
Didnt win so no tips for you :) But lots of fun...........Loved the story....our family includes lotto tixs in stockings too.......then my sister discovered the fake winning ones...............lol Still lots of laughs
Response: Haha, we haven't done the fake lottery tickets yet, however I want to. I couldn't do it to my parents though, I'd feel too bad. :P

Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you can't wait to read the book then see the movie. Thanks for beautiful bookmark. Did you handmake it, it's great.
Response: I hope you enjoy it! I'm so sorry for leaving the tag on there (if I did, which I think I did). It was right before I was leaving to go out of town and I wanted to get it out, so I was in a hurry! But I hope you enjoy the book!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely parcel. I love that you've included some sealed envelopes for future bad days - I'm having quite a few of those at the moment so I can't imagine the envelopes will stay closed for too long! And the Trivial Pursuits quiz book is awesome - I've never seen one of those before and can't wait to get stuck in.
Response: So glad that you enjoyed it! :) I hope it cheers you up whenever you need it!
Comment: blair, thank you so much for the stationery plus extras! i love magazine-page envelopes, and make them, too, but my pattern is much more primitive! do you have a template? the minis are so cute, too! thanks again for a great package! :), sschlegel p.s. i opened another package today from the same swap and she had also sent the swirly pink flower paper!

Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely stationery. I love the extra envelopes you sent, especially the little tiny ones. I almost ordered some off of Etsy, and now I don't have to. Do you sell them, or just like to swap them?
Response: Thank you for the rating! I do sell envelopes and notecard sets and whatnot on my Etsy shop. I hope to focus on the store the end of March and stock back up and things I've sold. :) Thank you for the rating, enjoy the stationery!
Comment: Oh yummmm! The Chocolate Cookie Bark looks quite scrummy - I love peanut butter! I like the recipe cards too, thank you for everything - Anna
Response: I made the cookie bark for our bowling Christmas party, and someone got on the intercom and asked whomever made it to please let them know because they had to have the recipe. :) I've never tried it because I don't like peanut butter or chocolate, but I've made it many times and it's been a HUGE hit!

Comment: Thank you for the ATCs. They are quite good! I especially like the bee one. And it was very sweet of you to send 2. As you keep doing them and getting some sent to you, you will see the world of possibilities out there!! You are off to a good start
Response: Well thank you! They were fun, and I look forward to trying more!

Comment: Loved the photo at the bottom of the email so much I tried to copy it but could not get it to go at the bottom of the email like you did, so just did an attachment.
Nice to hear about a snippet of your life and to see the face to those snippets. Thanks for sharing
Comment: Hi Blair. Thanks very much for the postcard. Lovely words, especially 'enervate'. I've never heard that before. 'Weedle' should actually be 'wheedle', unless you are talking about the pokemon! :P
Comment: Thanks for the neat animals! I am 2 years new to NC, so don't know where Kinston is, either. Swepsonville is near Graham, which is near Burlington, Greensboro and Chapel Hill. Kinda halfway between the last 2. Best, Chris
Response: Ok..so about 4 hours away then, I had family that use to live in Greensboro. :)
Comment: wow, thanks for all the great little items! I wish I had some more cards or something with your shop name and info on them though! I can't wait to have my first sale.
AND YAY!! my first sale! ...too bad I don't have my other partner's stuff to send to you!
Response: Pretty sure you just got your first sale. ;)
Of course, don't worry about sending me back my envelopes with it. :P
Comment: Hi. Thanks for the postcard. I loved it. Loggerhead turtles are so special, so it's one of my favorites yet. And thanks for reading my profile. Goodluck with your wedding and future baby having! :-)
