Comment: Your Mermaid atc was adorable, and well made, I especially liked the sentiment. Thanks for extra really cool red background and the flowers. Either you have ESP or you knew I liked and needed flowers.
Response: I read your profile and hoped you would like everything!! So glad you liked them! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Omg I love everything you sent! I haven't ever listened to the Grateful Dead and look forward to exploring new music. Thank you for your fun facts, It seems we like some of the same stuff, that is always a fun thing. Thanks again for your thoughtful package!
Response: Yay I'm so happy you liked everything!! Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Hello Karen.
Thank you so much for a very well-thought out box that you made for me. The box really reflects me. I really like the washi tape you sent me as those are all new to me. I liked everything you sent me, especially the coloring book, and notecards. I look forward to using your package of goodies.
Comment: Thank you for the cute ATC. I also love the Cheshire cat but I don't think there's anything in Wonderland that I don't love, lol. The goodies were amazing! ðŸ˜ The bookmarks are super cool, love the washi, stickers and patterned paper too ðŸ˜
Comment: Hello Karen,
Thank you so much for the mini coloring book you sent me for this swap. I really love it. I love the variety in pictures to color. I love that it is small and I can carry it in my purse and color-on-the-go. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. I hope we will be able to swap again.
Comment: Even though this was senders choice, I totally feel like this was a profile specific ATC. Thank you so much for the lovely mermaid ATC...I'm thrilled to add it to my collection! And yes, my house is definitely fun at times too! My twins both have sensory processing disorders (complete opposite ends of the spectrum,) one has anxiety disorder, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalcula. The other had a brain bleed at birth that has cause him to have a lot of social difficulties, and trouble forming and maintaining friendships...much like high functioning autism kids do. My daughter was born with cleft lip and palate and has severe speech delays due to that and lack of care in the orphanage. My oldest son has anxiety disorder and asthma. My youngest was the one who was supposed to have all the major issues, but wound up having really nothing but an easily fixed lazy eye! I love being able to connect with other moms who have special kiddoes through swapping! Hope today has been a good one!
Comment: Thank you for the atc, as a side note, don't forget to put your name on your atcs and what swap they are for. I know you put it on the card but since its in the swap description some people might give you a poor rating because of it! Trying to look out for you. Thank you again for the atc
Comment: you had me at the envelopes washi tape of the good fortune cats :) love cats love washi= a heart for you! lol
thank you so much for the extras as well, I don't think theres enough appreciation out there for when we give extras, even though every crafter knows how precious even our extras are, an hard to give up :)
an the ATC was lovely, thanks again!
Response: Agreed! I'm so glad you liked it! I got that at a Sanrio shop in Chinatown in Philly!! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU UNICORN YOU MADE! It;s so cute and sparlkly i love the quote too! The stickers the note card are amazing thank you very much! wish i could give you like 700 hearts!!
Response: Lyzz, you know how much I LOVE your swaps! I'm so glad you liked it! I started working on it as soon as you posted it! Please keep hosting these amazing swaps!! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Allons-y, indeed!! Thank you! I never expected to find 10 waiting for me on my doorstep when I got home...I mean, he was in a cardboard box and not a police one, but still!!! Thank you so much for sending him! Lol This REALLY brightened my day. :-))
Response: So glad you like him! Allons-y!! Thank you for the rating and the heart and making me smile!
Comment: I rated you a 5, but really don't understand why you would send me a Disney keychain. You wrote me & asked me what I like & I told you plus my profile was available, but what you sent doesn't even come close. My 8 year old grandson likes it though.
Response: You did and I asked you for your pop cultures likes and you have me other stuff plus there were no pop cultures likes and dislikes on your profile. Blind bags are all pop culture stuff. I'm sorry if that was not what you wanted. I did the best I can.
Comment: I got the lovey Edgar Allen Poe one and you're right I totally dig it. (I think its for this swap, it didn't have a number on it!) but no worries, I clicked through and found you as my partner for 8 and 11 so I figured it out.
Thank you for the atc
Comment: Great group of ATC's-diverse and fun! Thanks for sharing and the extra washi. Used the washi from your envelope in my December journal and thanks for the Star Trek stamps on the envelope-need them for my collection! Merry Christmas!
Response: You're welcome and I'm glad you liked everything! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for not one (as required), not two (that would have ben super nice) but THREE (this is amazing) ATC's! With your help my alphabet is for now complete! Thanks for the three lovely pokemon. (I don't know what to put as backgrounds, either!)
Response: You're so welcome!! I'm so glad you like them!! <3 Thanks for the rating and the heart!!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Harry Potter postcard! No worries about not sending one based on one of the movies on my profile. I didn't expect that anyway. I LOVE this postcard! Happy swapping! :)
Response: Oh yay I'm glad you like it! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I love your photos! So wonderful - and so much art! I just keep looking at them over and over. We have some beautiful old stones around here, but not nearly that much! I do love wandering in the older parts of our cemeteries here, as well as in cemeteries that look like no one has visited in a century!
Thanks also for the HP spell book! I love all the postcards, too - and so many of my most favorite Doctor! Thanks for it all!
Response: I'm so glad you like everything!! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the card, photos and washi tape. Your cats are so cute. My last cat was a calico and I still miss her. I agree about adopting from shelters. I won't have it any other way.
Response: Wow you got it fast!! Thank you for the rating and the heart!! Calicos are amazing kitties. :)
Comment: Thank you. I really enjoyed reading your postcard. Hope you took pictures of your cruise. A piece of advice, you might want to make sure to always write down your name and/or Id, you might get a low rating because of that. Take Care Brenda.

I play pokemon go plus do geocaching lol ;)
Response: Yay looking forward to it! Thanks for the rating!

Response: You are so welcome! I felt so bad I couldn't get the book out to you before the deadline so I'm so glad you like your package! Please let me know how you like the book and you'll see where I got the name "hushpad" from! Thank you for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: A delayed but HUGE thank you for the wonderful goodie box! I was sick when I received it, and the cute Teddy looking at me when I opened the box really made my day. I can tell you took the time to read my profile and chose things based on my likes which was so thoughtful. Many thanks for the extra treats as well. I enjoyed EVERYTHING so much!!
Response: I'm so glad you got it ok! I was beginning to get worried you didn't get it! I'm so happy you liked everything! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you! Received! I'll be saving it for my Dad's Christmas stocking :-) Edit: Dad opened it on Christmas and... we had a lot of fun trying to guess what character it was. Thanks so much for the figure and the fun!

Response: I'm so glad you like it! I thought a book themed tote was appropriate for this swap! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the journal and the book! I love Sandman, and it was definitely a surprise. I hope you get to feeling a bit better as the weather starts getting warmer. Chronic pain is THE WORST sometimes.
Response: Thank you for understanding. I'm glad you liked the book! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the cute cards I like the extra-terrestrial abductions day. I just joined a group that swaps PC's that are made or altered by the swapper. There is one coming up that calls for paisley on a PC. I think I'll use a bit of that fabric on it. Thanks.
Response: You're welcome! Thank you so much for reaching out to me so I could make things right! Thank you also for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for your lists - you found a lot of lists I didn't see so I learned some new things! :D And thank you so much for the jewelry kit, I have been wanting to try making chain maille jewelry so it's perfect!
Response: Perfect! Glad you liked it! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Your letter made me feel emotional. Hopefully things start getting better for you. On the bright side you have a loving and supporting husband. This is worth it's weight in gold. You are fortunate for that and be thankful for it. I loved the extras you sent my way. Thank you so much.

Response: Wawa is our local convenience store. I'm so glad you liked it! I went there specifically to get your yea because there are no Wawa's in Texas, much to the chagrin of my family that lives in Kileen!!
Comment: I got your recipe journal today! Going to make copies of what you already have in it. The garlic butter shrimp and rice looks like it should be dinner and the cake with the salted caramel buttercream frosting? I'm not going to share it. I'll attempt that when my kids are at their fathers house! Oh and thank you for the butterfly stickers!!!
Response: You're welcome! I made the chocolate cake! So yummy! Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Response: That's awesome! You have great taste in books! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a package!! Love all of it. You don't know what it met to have key chain. I am collecting key chains from states I have been to. Was in your state back in 2001. Would you be able to get a Penn key chain? We can pm about details if you are interested.
Response: Yes I can! Send me your address again and I'll send it your way once we dig out of 20 inches of snow!

Comment: Thank you for 2 amazing ATC's! They didn't even look like stickers, they were so pretty. I love underwater life and have 2 aquariums. Thank you for the extras. I can't wait to use the papers and I am obsessed with making and receiving handmade envies. Thank you for creating a swap for oldies like myself that have millions of stickers left from scrapbooking days.
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for joining my swap!

Comment: Thank you so much for the pens! I hope I'll get great use for them :-)
I'm sorry this rating is so late! I went through my swaps and found this - unrated. I'm sure I rated you from my phone when it got here, but there seem to be a bug, because it's happened more than once. I have to do it from my computer!
Response: No worries! Glad you like them! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the really funny card! I love it. That is so awesome that you love Buffy too! I'm obsessed with that show. I own all of the DVDs and play them all the time when I'm doing stuff around the house and/or crafting. :-)
Response: I really miss Buffy! I have the DVD's too and recently geeked out to Once More With Feeling!
Comment: Thank you for sending me your note to say hello. I appreciate that you took the time to look at my profile and your comments in the note. Would like to be a snail mail penpal as it has been a long time since I had one. Will reply soon.
Response: You're welcome! Looking forward to your response! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the great ATC and it's funny I started watching Doctor Who because of my son as well. He said you have to watch this mom and I did and got hooked. Enjoy watching it and bring tissues!
Comment: Hi Karen, Thanks for the postcard, our answers were similar. My hubby and I share a car so I would use some money for a down payment on a car for me. LOl Our son has a jeep and loves it, he just got it.
Response: Sucks! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Hi again, Karen! Thanks for the great card. I, too, wish that I was a better artist! But I've learn that not being artistic doesn't mean you're not creative and I think that's just as great of a quality so don't be too hard on yourself!
Comment: Awesome pocket letter! Thank you. I loved everything you added to it. The troll is awesome! It's just like the one I had as a kid. Thank you for the gem and necklace too. Those are really neat and will go with my altar items. Thank you so much! Blessed Samhain!

Comment: Got the traveling book yesterday in the mail. And it didn't get wet with all the rain we are having! love your cats. Thanks so much for the lighthouse postcard. I have been to the Wawatam Lighthouse, but did not get a picture of it. So thanks so much.
Response: I told my mailman to be careful with it! Glad it didn't get wet!

Response: A lucky guess! You're welcome and I loved this swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the coloring sheets! I've always love to color as a little girl, so I'm so glad "adult coloring" is in style!!! I'll be using your pretty page in one of my journals. Thanks again and happy coloring
Comment: Thanks for the interesting pair of books. I like both. It will be fun to re-read Naked Lunch, read many of the beat books years ago (GREAT CHOICE!) and I also like romance so thanks for both! Have a great week!
Response: You're welcome! You have a great week as well!
Comment: I loved getting your happy mail... I can't believe how quickly it got here:)
The cookies are delicious and i've really enjoyed reading your letter - lots of things i didn't know. Thanks again, I love it all.
Response: You're welcome! Glad you liked everything!
Comment: This was a fun. The postcards are lovely as are the stickers. I like that note card because our church is called anchored in faith. I just got on washi tape so it will be fun to use that sample in my pocket now letters. I especially love the brotherly love pin. However, the pen was not protected or cushioned and the post office charged me an extra $2 to receive it. I think it's some rule they have about the thickness of the letter and with the pin this one stuck out. Any thoughts on this? Thanks for being so generous.
Response: And I mailed that from the post office! I'm so sorry! I will refund that if you would like!
Comment: Hi Karen, thank you very much for your letter, I really enjoyed reading it :) It's funny because you have written only part of my address ("Mickiewicz" instead of "MickiewiczA 18E/5"), but it arrived safely! :D I will definitely write back to you this weekend, so please expect my letter :)
