Comment: What a pretty little book you used! There was some Aussie-jargon that I didn't understand but I enjoyed reading it. I'm glad you are also a quilter and sent me the beautiful FQ! Thank you and happy holidays.
Comment: I got the journal but it does not meet the posted swap requirements. The hostess stated that we were not supposed to repeat and thats all you did. Every day is a wrapper of something. Mostly some thing eaten and not even by you. The swap posting states in bold lettering - IMPORTANT: PLEASE USE DIFFERENT ITEMS FOR EACH DAY. THERE SHOULD NOT BE 30 OF THE SAME ITEM! ..... Yes the wrapper are different but it's still a wrapper everyday.
6/11/14 I CHANGED MY RATING FROM A 3 TO A 5 TODAY DO TO THE KINDNESS OF ANOTHER SWAPPER WHO ASKED THAT SHE BE ABLE TO MAKE GOOD ON THIS SWAP FOR THIS SWAPPER. ( MY THANKS GO TO MTNesters55947 FOR HER RAK. I HOPE THIS SWAPPER KNOWS WHAT A GOOD FRIEND YOU ARE TO HER AND THANKS YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS IN FIXING THIS SWAP FOR HER. ) SWAPPER ( siouxx05)DID NOT DO ANYTHING TO DESERIVE A RATINGS CHANGE. I ONLY CHANGES IT DUE TO HER FRIENDS REQUEST.
Response: Good grief, I apologise that the things I buy have wrappers.. and I am sure there weren't 30 of them.. and anything in that book was something I purchased,, doesn't matter who it was for . The instructions don't say it has to be something that ONLY I used. I knew this would end badly. Thank you..
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful calendar. I love it. I have a thing about calendars and usually end up with more than I need. I have a special place in the kitchen where this one will go. It's where we write down our appointments and things. Also look at every day. I got to laughing when I first looked through it and there are a few missing holidays. Then, OH Yes, you don't have all the same as we do. LOL. So think I will celebrate yours this next year. Try something different !!!! Thanks again.
Comment: I would not have joined this swap had I known that your gift would have melted in my mailbox. Please resend. It is 109 here today. Didnt you read my profile about not sending things that would melt?
Response: Melted is just another form of artistic expression.. Use it up! Thank you :)
Comment: I have sent you money for your around-the-world trip. Be on the look out for a cheque from my Nigerian princess account. Thanks for joining my swap, now... please, never speak to me again. xo j
Response: I am taking my Nigerian-funded trip around the world as we speak..! Thank you :)
Comment: Thanks for re-sending. You and I like a lot of the same things! My collection of pens just keeps growing! I used to collect the Coke collectibles, too, and I, too, have a collection of notebooks, containing all sorts of things! We are so much alike! What is the AFL? Is it football? (soccer)
Response: My DH says I have too many collections.. He says I have too much 'stuff'!
AFL is Australian Football League.. It isn't soccer, it is played with an oval-shaped ball.!
Comment: I loved your collections pages. I like how you have everything organized. Wish I was that organized. :) I like how you used the team colors as the background for your team. It really ties the pages and pictures together. Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Just got your mini journal today and I'm reading it now. I love it so far, thanks! The mini journal I wrote talked about my knitting & quilting projects too :) Yum, banana chocolate nutella bread! And I think the inchie is awesome. Thank you for sharing!
Response: Excellent, thank you! I don't really do much and If I didn't have my knitting and especially my sewing, there wouldn't be much to say! :)
Comment: You aren't late. According to my clock you still have 7 hours till midnight. Which is good because that means I have 7 hours myself to photograph my pages and send them to you. I have to say that this round was the hardest for me. For some reason... none of the topics spoke to me. oh well... I did love your cover. That makes your book look so cute and fat. And your colorful acronym page is awesome too! Thanks for sharing!!!
Response: Ah yes, the good old date line and you being so far behind me..! I found this round hard too, that is why I am so late sending.. i was working on it last night! I have never married so these were the only two topics I could do.... Thank you for the lovely comments about my pages.. :)
Comment: I am loving getting to know you better through your Smashpages. It's nice to see your personality shine through. Good work! My kids go back to school next week... so while they are gone I will finish off your Smashbook and get mailed!
Response: This has been a great swap so far, and getting to know each other is just fantastic too.. :) Thank you :)
Comment: Thank you for the great journal. It was fun to read about your month. Thank you for putting in the extras so I could see what the quilt was going to look like and all of the cards that you put in. Have a great New Year.
Response: I had fun doing this one.. glad you liked it! Thank you :)
Comment: Thanks for the nice smashbook. I loved how you have beads with my name spelled out on the front. I also loved the things you sent as my angel for the 3 wishes swap. You are truly an angel! I hope you get your Smashbook from your partner soon as well!
Response: Glad you liked it! I always have fun doing these books.. Thank you.. :)
Comment: Sue... You did fantastic on this Smashbook. It arrived today and I love every page. Some of my favorite parts are... The cover, the included letter, the ads sprinkled throughout we're super cool, the pockets and envelopes were great touches and I love all the notepaper space. You did amazing and you had better join future swaps! It's funny that I got your package just an hour after I mailed off yours. I can't wait to hear if you like the one I sent you.
Response: Thank you!!! :) I had a blast doing it for you and I am so glad you like it and I got it right..! I will join in future swaps now.. :) I can't wait to get yours..
Comment: How lovely ! I'm so very glad I did this swap. The journal sent to me is enclosed in a very sweet cloth binding - I can't wait to read it and find continued use for the pretty cover! Thank you so much!
Comment: It helps if you think of the chocolate coffee as "dark" hot chocolate. I used to make my hot chocolate packets with free work coffee. It seemed less sweet that way, with a nice touch of dark-chocolate bitterness. Mmmm.
Response: Thank you :) LOL.. if I drank it, I would be bouncing off the walls for days after.. I don't drink coffee at all..
Comment: Thank you!! The fabrics you sent are delightful. I love the shades of reddish-purple! and the paisley-type patterns are wonderful. Thank you so much! I look forward to using them in my charm quilts and crazy quilts!
Response: Thank you too.. I love all the fabrics I send out too... :)
Comment: What a great record of your September, Sue! Your journal is well put together, and a vivid record of your month . Loved the Sept 12 comment about buying art supplies: "I came out with a few extras". Oh, yes. Thanks so much!
Response: Thank you, glad you liked it! I was having fun doing these journals.. :) can't wait for them to start up again.. Thank you for the heart, I appreciate it. :)
Comment: Wish I could add a lot more hearts! Thanks so much for sharing a little of your life with me. I found it so interesting! The "little princess" is lucky to have a grandma like you! BTW, did you decide to keep your "Junque" journal?? ;^) It's really cool!
Response: LOL, I am glad you found my rather boring life interesting.. I love doing these journals, they are so interesting. It is good to go back to the beginning and see what I have done and had for the month. Yes, I did decide to keep the 'junque' journal, thank you for the compliment. :)
Comment: I love getting fabric from other countries and yours is no exception. Beautiful bright colors, you did very well with your choice of each one of the 50. Now I just need another 49 hearts to give you. Thank You and may you be richly Blessed in return. Shalom
Response: Thank you, glad you liked them. Pity we couldnt get more people form more places interested. :)
Comment: I believe that the requirement was to send 2 ATC's, but nevertheless your ATC was beautiful and well put together. I am packing to move at the moment so don't worry to send another. Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC :)
Response: OMG! So it was..! I kept checking to make sure I had made enough, but forgot to check the requirements, I just checked the number of partners. I am really sorry and would love to make it up
to you.. :)
Comment: Thanks Sue. Really nice fabric and a fun swap! I have some left-over half-square triangles from another project that are squaring up nicely to 1 1/2". I can't wait to see how it all goes together with my tiny charms!
Response: Wow.. that will be some amazing quilt.. can't wait to see that one...! Thank you :)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome photos! I especially loved the photo of the tag on the shed. Interesting.. because I didn't think graffiti could be found in Australia too, but I guess it can be, haha. n_n;;
Response: If there are teenagers, there is graffiti !! It is everywhere and a lot of it is pointless scribble... ty for the <3
Comment: Thanks so much. I enjoyed immensely and seeing Australian products and tickets, etc. And getting to know a little of your life, thanks for sharing! So sorry that your daughter lost a baby, and how wonderful of you to donate and help others facing the same loss!
Response: Thank you.. it was an interesting exercise.. and thank you for your sympathy for my daughter.. we appreciate it.. :)
Comment: Your well wrapped parcel in the terrific handmade envelope arived in my mailbox this afternoon. The fabrics are beautiful and thank you for including such lovely colours and the heart fabrics! You sent such a great variety. I agree, I am eager to put all this together to make a quilt. Hearts to you and Thankyou again for the wonderful package.
Response: I am glad you like them all.. thank you :)
Comment: I think this photo must be absolutely stunning! The post office was none too gentle with it. Sadly, it arrived badly scratched and in some spots, void of color. Still a very nice photo. Thank you for sharing it with me! Oh, and I have a Lavender Bush in my backyard which also smells fantastic!
Response: OH, that was a bit rude of them.. :( I haven't had that happen before! Thank you .. :)
Comment: I got a chuckle out of your note! small and compact. :) wiki says 1.28 million people! Small by european standards? lol My home town is 120,000...:) and I'm in the 2nd largest city in this state.
Response: Well.. it feels small.. it doesn't take that long to get from one side to the other... :)
Comment: Beautiful ATC, Sue - I really like your style of cards. Using a crayon for the background is a neat effect (I think that's what you did :D). And the extra one was lovely also - thank you so much! Oh, and thanks for the sleeves and the cute paper clip!! I love cute office supplies, and of course I can always use the sleeves. Smiles! â™¥
Response: Yes it is crayon.. #blush#, but I use whatever is at hand.. :) Glad you liked them and have a use for the sleeves.. :)
