Comment: Hi Deb - wow! thank you for the delightful package that arrived in my mailbox today! The idea to put things in the little clam shell box was excellent to keep everything protected yet light weight! I love the wreath, folk art templates, stamps (graduate one is perfect as I've scrapbook pages to make for my daughters graduation last year).and the trees are perfect to adorn my Christmas envelopes. I will give the Santa ornament pattern a try. I also loved your embossed card - a keeper for sure. Happy Thanksgiving. Dale
Response: I found the clamshell boxes at Daiso a Japanese dollar store. They're for sushi and they have different sizes. I love them and it's packaging that's reusable! Thank you for the kind words and heart!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE this needle book! It has birdies on it and a different hand-embroidered flower on each page! Thanks too for all the little extras included! They will be put to good use! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: What a fun and festive package I received today!!!! I Love how you tied the wooden spoons on front!... I am waiting to open the package Christmas morning.... Thank you very much. Merry Christmas
Comment: Had to take a peek ........shhhh don't tell Santa. Love my little gift mini shop bag with goodies of embellishments for my crafts. They were a great selection. I still put it under my tree. I won't use till Christmas.
Comment: I love Lang cards and these gingerbread men are adorable! Thank you so much! I'll have to try those salted caramel cookies (by try, I mean get someone else to make them!!), they sound yummy! Merry Christmas!
Comment: What a fun package you sent to me. The cookies were opened before anything else! My roomie (pandd) loves wedding cookies! I always make them for her at Christmas time. The pin is so cute and the other goodies very appropriate. The beads and tile are really cool. I am already thinking of ways to use them. Thanks so much for the great swap!p.s. I am hanging that happy flower card in my crafting area. It is too good to recycle or cut up! Looking at it just makes me smile! T.Y. :-)
Response: You are so welcome! I wanted to send goodies from my bakery, but I was worried it would be too stale. Boxed cookies are safer :) enjoy!

fancy soap ... thank you so very much!

Comment: Wow - what a beautiful stocking with lots of little packages! I'm trying to wait until Christmas to open them but may not be able to wait that long. I'm so eager to see what's in them!!~~~~~~~So I opened them Christmas Eve ~ what a wonderful bunch of crocheted goodies! You are sure talented. I do crochet but not that good! I will sure enjoy using these.
(I used to live in San Diego a long time ago and really enjoyed it.)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful plate, I didn't know it was for Christmas so I just opened the box :P The cup had a crack in it but I just chalk that up to the post I office. I'm even using the box to hold other Swap-Box gifts.
Response: Oh no! I wrapped that in bubble wrap, put it in the storage box and wrote fragile on every side of the package. That irks me! I wish I could get you another one :(
Comment: Got the lovely package today. Love the placement and the napkins and paper plates are very pretty. The mug is perfect, I like big mugs so it will work great and all the Kcups and teas will be used in the near future. The little pumpkin went on my stove for a spoon holder. Thanks for spoiling me!
Comment: ACK!!! Sorry for the late rating! I got your package just before going out of town, and forgot to post a rating! I LOVE the pom and the little book was AMAZING!! Thank you thank you thankyou!!! :)
Response: I wanted to help you in your goal to make more things this year but wasn't sure what to pick out. I hope it spurs on a crafting streak - or writing one with the pens. Merry Christmas and a ho ho ho!
Comment: I am so sorry I didn't rate you earlier. I even have it checked off in my notebook that I did. Wierd. Again, Im sorry. But I did recieve your package. Thank you soooo much!! I love the pen!! , and of course, everything else too!! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! @[email protected] You are living in beauty 24/7/365! I love the shell compact and thank you so much for the antique post card. â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ !
Response: I am so glad you liked everything! The shell came from Catalina Island. Yes, I believe the beach is the most inspiring place for me. That card is going on 100 years old in a few short years - imagine that?
Comment: Oh my what a great package! Not 6 but 7 gifts in butterfly paper! I opened 2 and love the dpns, needed those and especially need the needle sizing gage , stitch markers and needles. Thank you for spoiling me so!
Comment: Got it, got it, got it! Many hearts to you for being kind enough to resend! I love everything...the vintage hair nets were great and the projects were wonderful! I am going through them more slowly to absorb them! The fabric was also great! Thanks again! Teri
Comment: The quilt blocks are beautiful!! Your hand sewing is exquisite, so neat and evenly spaced, I haven't seen this beautiful hand work in a long, long time, thank you for the instructions on how to place the blocks for a quilt, and all that baby yarn, I'm in yarn heaven! Thank You and many Blessings in return
Comment: You packaged everything wrapped in red tissue paper with tags on them. It was so fun opening each package. I absolutely love the crochet flowers. The crochet butterfly is so cute. Thanks for all the goodies.
Comment: The yarn arrived today, You hit the nail on the head with the baby yarn. I found out a couple weeks ago that I will have a second great-grandchild this fall. I have knit a blanket so far, playing it safe with yellow. This will be great for a sweater. I don't usually like varigated yarn, but this is my favorite color, browns. I love it and I know my granddaughter will love what ever I make from it. Good luck on your heavier yarns, I have some new chenille yarn I haven't tried yet, sure is pretty though. ha ha Have you ever heard of Elann's yarn on the internet.? I get some of my best yarn from them, and they are very reasonable. I recently bought some wool and cashmere for a scarf for my daughter, check out the site if you like nice yarn you can't find at Joann's or walmart. www.elann.com.
I love their yarns. Marcia
Response: Glad yu liked it! Remember that it's a self-oatterning strip - dainty small stripes. I have a ball of matching brown from the same line if you need it to make accents. It's a great color for little boy, but contemporary for girls too.
Comment: Ohmygosh, it's like you know me--I've worked with Debbie Macomber before and love her accessory line (got that!), I love anything someone has made for me (postcard-got that!), I need a tape measure to carry with me that isn't too large (got that!), and I'm always losing darning needles (got them!). I also got a knitting needle gauge that I have been wanting. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. :))
Comment: Hi Deb,
received my package and THANK YOU so much. I can hardly wait till I get knitting with the nice yarn you sent. Also I certaily can use everything you sent. NEVER have enough stitch holders. Especially when you have several projects going at the same time.
Take care and again THANKS!!!!!
Response: I was thinking you might like the yarn! Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for all the yarn and for the patterns. I was already going to sign up for your Chicken Egg Cozy Swap and now I don't have to search for the pattern. Also, when I last visited my Grandmother, she gave me one of the cup and saucers that she had made and I have been wanting to make one myself and now I have the pattern for it as well. You are awesome! :) Thanks again!
Comment: thank you so much for the buttons that are so ugly they're actually really awesome and cool :D! also thank you so much for all the extras.. i'd give you million hearts if that were possible<3.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful and fun package! I love the stamp, pot holders and the beads, just about to put on the cd! Thank you for thinking of me and sending me such nice things I would enjoy!
Comment: OH MY! Many thanks for the BEAUTIFULLY crocheted packet of pocket tissues! I was shocked when I opened the package! It is lovely and I am envious of anyone who can do knitting or crochet. I truly appreciate the thought, time and effort you put into my package as my swap-bot partner.
Comment: I'm going to try to wait until Christmas...I think :->
AWESOME stocking I love the goodies. I sat down Christmas night with
a cup of coffee and opened all the swap
gifts...it was my own little private Christmas! Thank you for helping make it so special.
Comment: Thanks so much for a terrific package! I couldn't wait to open everything so I just jumped right in! You made a beautiful bracelet and bag! and I love the candles and soaps. I feel very pampered. Thanks for setting up these swaps, too. It was fun. Thanks again for making my day!
Comment: BEAUTIFUL package!! :) I love all the stuff and the soap smells so nice! The water bottle was such a nice surprise and I can't wait to use it! Everything was very thoughtful and you deserve a million hearts <3
Comment: Thank you so much for this fantastic package Deb! I absolutely loved everything you sent, including the adoreable dog bag, the autumn purse, the hand towel (I don't have any like this!) and the delicious nuts and seeds. What a perfect package - thanks again!!!
Comment: Deborah sent a 'Pink Themed' package, which included the following:
Hand knit wash cloth, a scrubbie, pink body glaze (hmmmm), along with a pink, reusable bag and a packet of tea bags. Fabulous. ;-)
Comment: Oh I just love my envelope full of goodies! My favorite has to be the key chain that you crocheted for lip balm! Oh I love that! You have no idea how much lip balm I use, especially now during the winter! The To-do-list and calendar is too cute, the scrubber made out of t-shirts is too original! And everything else is just great! Thanks so much for wonderful items and my first swap! You rock!
Comment: BEAU-TI-FUL!!!!!!! Thank you so much for the package full of surprises! I love (and need..) absolutely everything! I wish I could give you more hearts, I feel I was lucky to have you as a prtner!!!! Thank you very much!
Comment: This is so fantastic... I LOVE the wig... but the eyeball earrings have stolen my heart! I will be wearing them throughout the year for sure! And the chocolate... MMMmmmmm! Thank you so much for a fabulous swap! :)
Comment: My mailbox is lonely no more! What an incredible package! I love the material you sent. It is unlike what I have, so it will inspire some different dotees. The beads and embellishments are wonderful. I particularly like the felt decorations. I wonder if you made them? My favorite thing is the mermaid. I should probably share with my granddaughters, but I think this will be a treat for me. Thank you so much for such a thoughtful surprise.
Comment: thank you so much for the beautiful sacred heart. it is lovely. the mexican wrestler is fabulous!! and of course the loteria cards. thank you so much for such a wonderful package! *you deserve a heart but its not allowing me to choose the option. ill come back and add it. remind me if I forget. please. I am awaiting IKE so my mind isn't all here right now.
Comment: Thanks for being an "Angel!" Love your interpretation of the Alphabet :) Great postcards and beer mats to add to my wall, too!!! I have a lot of favorites of what you sent but the most loved might be the beautiful fish ornament and the well wishes that go with it. Thanks, pearlie!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the magazine -- I had actually bought this for myself a little while ago, but it got destroyed in a red-wine accident. :-) I couldn't find it again in the store, so I was so happy to receive it from you! Thanks also for the vintage pattern!
Comment: Absolutely fabulous! I never knew that Good Earth made Chai Tea bags, too. I love drinking the sweet & spicy Good Earth tea. What an adorable tea bag clip. I think I might use it for decoration elsewhere, because it's just too pretty! THANK YOU!!!
Comment: Deb! The pin cushion is so adorable, I really love it. And all the extras! WOW, you sent me a full Dotee making kit! Thanks for everything. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness.
Comment: Thank you for the nice pickle! Nice touch to add the see beads, wish I would have thought of that. Thanks also for the little holiday frame and the little pin made from wood and a spoon! Too cute!
Comment: Deborah, thank you for the absolutely exquisite (and exquisitely knitted!) cabled dishcloths and the tea....I love how they packaged that tea. I am saving it for a while to enjoy the packaging! Sorry to take so long to rate and thank you. I was drowning in swaps there for a while and keeping it all straight got away from me. I do appreciate the time you took to knit the lovely dishcloths. We are near each other, and both knitters, and both Deborahs, so perhaps one day our paths will cross. Best wishes!
Comment: What an awesone package!It made my day.I love the beautiful felt dove and the crystal tree ornaments. My children got a kick out of the green envelop. Thank you!
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I used to make a version of it wholesale for gift shops - but without the embroidery. Now I can take my time to pretty it up more for special people!! I also used to raise white doves so it's my favorite for a reason.
Comment: Thank You! for everything. I am going to love that apron and I'm sure the new one will look super cute in that hat. The stitch markers are so pretty! And the magazines thank you for giving them to me I am always on the look out for new patterns.
Comment: Thank you SO much for the sweet, functional apron! It was put to use, along with the spoon and knit dish cloth, the first day they arrived. That wooden spoon is AWESOME, and the dish cloth is such a pretty color. Thank you VERY much!
Comment: WOW what a awesome package! I just love
the pincushion and my daughter stole the dishrag to put in her hope chest she is getting married next year. The M&M notes are so awesome love love them.... Thanks so much!
Response: You're welcome and I'm so happy you like everything!!
Comment: Thank you for the package, I love it! You did a wonderful job finding all of the items, I had so much fun unwrapping all the little packages. I'm not even sure what my favorite was, but there were several items that I was actually looking for and there was no way you could have known. Great job!!
Response: Wow! I'm so happy! I have to agree - this was a fun swap!
Comment: Thanks for such a great swap, Deb!! I absolutely adore the acorn pincushion -- especially the leaves, they're perfect!! Thank you for the magazines, too - I haven't seen any of these issues before, and I can't wait to go through them! <3
Comment: I love my tea party stuff. I didn't wait for my hubby to try the wonderful tea you sent in my absolutely beautiful little tea cup. I did manage to hold off on the wafers and save him a few. Thank you sooo much for the swap.
Comment: OMG! This is the coolest package I've received in awhile! Thanks SO MUCH for the chocolate (my favorite- I love DOVE) and I've been wanting to try Bamboo Yarn for the longest NOW I HAVE SOME!!! Also all the GS goodies, oh man. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!! â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Response: Woohoo! that makes me smile :)
That bamboo yarn is the best I've found too!
Comment: THANK YOU!!! Love the apron, love the necklace, and I love the little measuring spoons. And the apron is long enough that I can tie it high up over my growing baby-belly too. As soon as I opened the package, I immediately put it on and my 17-mo-old insisted that I take it off and put it on her. :) It will definitely be well and happily used here!
Comment: The beads are all beautiful! I believe they are amethyst. I have been looking for amethyst beads for my mala but had not been able to find any of the correct size. Thank you also for the tea, I <3 tea.
Comment: thank you for your swap, the penguin is very nice, thank you for the tea as well, shame that all is loose without the bag /so many teas in your country are sealed in bags/
Response: Many of the teas are going "green" and reducing packaging to reduce waste. The ones I sent use those fabric or net bags sealed at their factory. Funny, but the higher price the tea the less packaging they use! It's a trend that's growing.
