Comment: Hi Valerie, your mail arrived yesterday on 31 Oct and it's awesome! I want to say a BIG thank you too for the extra themed goodies which couldn't fit into the pockets!

Response: WOW! :) So glad you love it! I had fun with the swap!! <3 On the back I used Aleen's Tacky Glue :)
Comment: Thank you for all the goodies, they wow'ed me, you've really outdone yourself! By the way, thank you for your patience handling disputes with me, your time and effort is much appreciated. Back to the topic, I've never imagined anyone would actually send me a fortune teller fish - I've never seen the real thing in my life before today, guess I could took it off my wishlist now. Cheers and have a nice day.
Response: I am soooo glad that you liked the items! That Fortune Teller Fish had just come to me in a swap so after reading your profile knew I had to send it to you! They are some of my favorite things too! :) So sorry we had to deal with that dishonest swapper I appreciate you trying to remedy that! Happy swapping!

Comment: Thank you for the adorable vintage Halloween card! So cute! Sometimes we decorate for Halloween, but more often than not we don't because I hate taking the decorations down. Same for Christmas.
Response: OMG! SAME!! its going to be a nightmare getting that fake webbing out of my trees! So glad you liked the card!
Comment: Thank you for your message a few weeks back checking on your postcard. Yesterday a very battered postcard arrived safely with me, I wish it could tell me it's story because clearly I has been on quite an adventure. It is now one of my favourites because it has a story.
Thank you again
Response: Glad to know it arrived! It would be cool to hear that story! Happy to know it is safely in good hands now :)
Comment: Thank you for the pocket letter and for participating in my swap. It was a great surprise to see that you made the letter Halloween themed as well. I really like the cat on the right that covers two pockets.
Response: YW! That was a fun part of this pl for sure!! glad you liked it!!
Comment: I love punch studio cards! The Halloween designs are beautiful. Thanks for the ribbon also. I have to ask about the AMAZING scull ribbon. Did you print that? I love it! I have special plans for that. Thanks for everything! Have a great Halloween !
Response: Glad you liked everything, most of my Halloween ribbon is purchased at JoAnn's. I'd like to see what you use it on! so cool!!
Comment: Thank You so much for the wonderful happy mail! You sent so many fun things that I can use when creating greeting cards. I especially love the BOO bag with the cute little monsters in Halloween costumes. Perfect! Happy Swapping ... Cheers!
Response: I am so glad that you liked it and will be able to use them! I wish they still made those paper trick or treat bags, I haven't been able to find them anywhere but id probably hoard them forever if I did lol
Comment: AHHH! How would I ever forget to rate you?!? What a terrific envelope of wonderful! Starting with the adorable hedgehog label on the outside, and an envelope chock full of things I love and will use with all I do - you obviously looked at my profile, and I so appreciate it. GREAT SWAP!

Response: Glad you enjoyed the swap and liked the cards! <3
Comment: I'm all good with them both coming together! The part of UT I'm in doesn't really get a winter, if we get snow at all it will all melt by noon, which is how I prefer my snow :) Thank you for the lovely glittery card.
Comment: 9/21/2017--Ty for the under the sea deco books. I wanted to let you know that the mailing envelope you mailed your swap in was damaged in the mailing process. The post office put the damaged envelope in a plastic bag. 3 deco books were in it with a pink sticky note. Happy swapping.
Response: OH no! I hope the books were ok! I'll make sure to use different envelopes next time, thanks for letting me know!
Comment: wow! that was fast! love the message in your zine and I also love what you did to the edges of it! thanks for all of the lovely tags! I will definetly use them! ( actually needed a tag two days ago.)

Comment: Wow! This is the first homemade postcard I've received and I have to say I love it!!!!â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ This is just super cute!! Thank you so much for sending me this awesome card!! It made my day! We lived in Guinea for about a year before we had to come home to get my husband medical treatment for his malaria.

Comment: Wow! You deserve so many extra stars. You were way to generous. I am sure I will use everything you you sent! Thank you so so much. The stamps were beautiful and are the exact style I collect. The paper pieces were perfect to! This is all going in my very own private stash.
Response: YAY! lol always good to know when things find a home where they will be used and appreciated! Hope you had fun in this swap! <3
Comment: Thank you for the PC. I has some minor damage to my house but nothing that couldn't be fixed with some nails and a hammer. Yes truly amazing how so many people from around Texas and other states have come to aide Texas. Now..we pray for Florida as they are expecting hurricane Irma. Happy swapping.
Response: Ugh yes! and all the states on fire! What a crazy time! <3
Comment: Thank you for sharing a story about your life in the note card. I got a bloody lip, both my pinkies were very bruised and I had lots of bruises on my legs from the airbags under the steering wheel, that I didn't even know were there. My husband didn't think I would want another 300 but I really like them and this one is even nicer. I'm recovered now and have even driven by the spot where it happened.
Response: <3 <3 <3
I'm glad your recovering physically and emotionally! I had a minor accident on a busy road I avoided going to my appointments for a couple months and when I did go I would shake while passing that area.
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the items that you sent to me. The card is really funny! I also love the booklet of stamped images. That is a cool idea that I have not received before. Thanks again!
Response: I am so glad you liked everything! Yeah the stamp thing is something I am working on still so glad you liked it!
Comment: Valerie, I don't know what to say. Thank you so much!!! What a wonderful box full and I mean full of goodies! You know by nature, I'm a giver. So it's nice once in a while to get a treat like you gave me. Beautiful selection of washi tape, the travelers notebook journals are awesome, the selection of paper is beautiful. I could go on. Very complete thoughtful swap. Bless you.
Response: <3<3<3 I am so glad you liked it! I tried getting that to fit in that small envelope but knew that wasn't going to happen lol I'm glad that those items will be able to be used instead of collecting dust on my shelves!!!
Comment: I received it today and I love it so much - those flower brads! How cute are they?! Also, the cat paper is a total hit. Thank you so much for those flowers made of old book pages! You definitely earned the heart!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! And that it got their so fast, I thought it would take longer.
