Comment: I've already been to Italy twice and it's still what I chose as my dream vacation, too. Haha. It's a truly magical place. I appreciated all of the links you included; they were fun to look at. I hope your Italian vacation dreams come true soon, Susan!
Comment: Susan thanks so much for the lovely ATC it turned out great! I love your interpretation of aquarius! & it sounds like you have an awesome little two year old! Ps thanks for reading my profile to❤
Response: I’m so glad you like it! & yes, life with my boys is epic 🤣!
Comment: Hi Susan,
Thank you for reaching out to me! It looks like my inbox ate your email, but I searched for it and found it! The Good Place is one of my fave shows. I've heard great things about Good Girls/The Crown and will put them on my list.
Comment: Oh my word!!! You sent a perfect swap!!! Thank you so much!!! I love all my Pooh goodies!!! They must have been so much fun to make! I can't wait to blog about them!!! [Sorry for so many exclamation points. I'm just THAT excited]. 100 hearts to you!
Response: Oh my, I am actually blushing a bit. So glad you liked the items I sent & that they arrived in tact!
Comment: UPDATE Feb 4, 2020: Thank you for coming back after 10 years and making good on past swaps! The ornament you made is beautiful! You did a great job! I guess technically, I should rate you a 3 since it took 10 years to receive, LOL, but the fact that you wanted to make up for it after 10 years, I think you should get a 5. You could have easily just let it go but you didn't! Thank you!
Received a PM after the send date saying that you will be late but it have been over 2 months now. Will change if I ever receive.
Response: Thanks so much for the kind (& very generous) RE-rate. I’m glad I reached out to make good on those old swaps instead of just starting over.
Comment: Thank you very much for decorating my profile :) One tip for making it easier, is to sort your image search by size and use images that are approximately 300x300. If they are bigger, only parts of the image will show. Thanks again for the nice pictures :)
Response: Thanks! That’s part of the advice GrammyPammy gave me too! 😊
Comment: You did great! I had issues too so I totally get where you are coming from! Glad you got to figure it out!
Response: I felt kind of silly having to ask for help on what seemed like it should be easy enough, but...oh well. I'm also not as familiar/comfortable on my Mac as I should be so that was part of the issue.
Comment: AMAZING!! I love the snake Goddess you sent for me. She's going on the, you guessed it, Snake Altar. I love snakes as they are my totem and a sacred animal to me along with most other reptiles, and arachnids. This goddess is gorgeous. I love her so much. I also love that you put beads on her so that she rattles when I shake her and reminds me of a rattle snake! I LOVE HER SO MUCH! Your extras were PERFECT. I'm so looking forward to a mini quilting project with all the fabrics you sent and the paper is perfect weight and shimmer for some lovely layered paper beads and jewelry. Thank you for understanding about my myriad of allergies and not sending food :) Thank you again. This swap is beyond what I expected. Thank you!!
Response: I am ever so glad you like her. I think she is the swap I am most proud of so far. I really appreciate your patience & giving me time enough to finish her as I intended (rather than just rushing & skipping the beads for instance).
Comment: WOW! First, the ATC is fabulous, I LOVE it. You are so talented. You spoiled me with the chocolate and the GRAY sharpie I have yet to have found, thank you, thank you! The topping on all this is that you included a gift for Sage and Trent. You deserve 1000 Hearts for being such a very special partner. Blessings, Mona
Response: Thank you, you're sweet to leave me such a nice comment. The Gray sharpie was kinda tricky, it was part of a "Cafe'" colors limited edition set, but once I spied it I knew I had to get it - especially after the private message you sent me.
Comment: Thank you for a lovely package - it brightened up my mail box and my day! Great job on your first ATC! Loved your handmade "flower decorated" ATC envelope, and the nicely decorated envelope you sent everything in. Thank you also for the extras too - ATC envie template, matchbox ready for me to decorate & assemble, vintage images, stickers, & tea (which looks delicious!), and for the Mary Oliver poem. As I said above - thank you for making my day!
Response: I'm ever so glad you liked it! Thanks for the kind rating.
Comment: oh i will forever love you for how you packed my swap! Charlie & The Chocolate Factory theme! how brilliant. when i was a kid i had this "secret" dream, that one day i would find one of the WIlly Wonka's Golden Tickets and could go to the amazing Chocolate Factory. and now i feel like that actually happened :D minus the going to the factory part, but still. all the chocolates were really good! twix is something we have here too, but i always enjoy it, plus the wrapping had a bit different design which i found interesting(oh the things i find interesting.. :D). and martha stewart quotes/tips/what ever inside those doves where really neat. and the chocolate you picked for me was just perfect. yeah, this is one long rate. but again, i will forever love you. and now i'm starting to sound creepy..
Response: I'm so glad it finally arrived & that you like it! I was so close to sending you a message yesterday asking if you'd gotten your swap yet but I thought I'd give it one more day so I didn't seem obsessive! I don't think you sound creepy at all- it's nice to have one's efforts appreciated. Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: Cool postcard, Susan Alena! We love Asheville (at least from a visitor's perspective, and probably would also love it from a resident's perspective too!). When we were there, there was a freak snowstorm that dumped 8 inches in a morning/afternoon. Sounds like you may be snowy now too! Have a great weekend! Jolene
Response: So glad you like it. Yes Asheville is lovely (though unusually snowy this year). Best wishes & Happy Valentine's day!
