Comment: Thank you for the beautiful holiday card with the snowy scene (it reminds me of my childhood) and for the lovely message. Also, thank you for the cute Christmas sticker/seals-I needed some. For making my swap extra special, you've earned your heart. Happy holidays and many happy surprise swaps to you.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely selection of teas and nice note :) Does your puppy have those big, round black eyes? I think when you look into the eyes of a seal it feels like looking into sad puppy dog eyes.
Comment: YES!!!!! Vintage cards! My favorite!!! Thanks so much for checking my profile and sending cards that I absolutely LOVE! (and probably won't able to send...hahaha....hoarding only!) All the cards were great! Many thanks!
Comment: What a wonderful selection of cool clear water PCs!! I love them all but especially the bamboo raft one - so beautiful - and the day at camp. . . and the humpback whale was extraordinary! Thank you so very much for the fabulous PCs ~~
Comment: Merry Christmas to you! You were so generous to include all those extra greeting cards for me to send. thank you so much. I especially like the "Just Believe!" poem note cards. Blessings, ellie
Comment: Went above and beyond for this one! I almost didn't open it because I thought perhaps it was something for Christmas, but I was scratching my head which swap it was for so my curiosity got the best of me, hee hee. Thank you ever so much for being so thoughtful â™¥! I can't wait to try the teas (especially the chocolaty mint black tea and the ginger drink -Yum!!) Plus the chocolate looney was a nice touch -fantastic! Thank You, Thank You (love your owls, by the way)
Take Care & Happy Swapping! :D
Response: tee hee, we share a love for forest creatures methinks! thanks for enjoying!
Comment: WOW! Amazing goodies just arrived at my door. I am so so excited about that chocolate mint tea because I haven't been able to find anything like that here. All the extras are perfect. thank you!
Comment: Wow!!! Thank you so much for all the awesome zines!! I can't wait to have some time (hopefully soon) to sit and read - and sip the yummy tea you sent. I'm so happy that you also included a copy of the Fill It zine - I have been in those swaps too and I'm excited to add another one to my collection! Thanks again! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely items!! :) I was just thinking about buying something to put on the teapot-spout, hahaha! Unfortunately someone at the post-office stole the teaspoon :( - thanks again for such a lovely package!!!
Comment: Oh my god I think you are really a fairy. How can you send me such a fantastic surprise? I mean-- 6 beautifully enveloped tea bags, a pretty little card, a apple card says "hello", and a pile of the most elegant napkin I ever seen? This is such a generous gift, you know! I want to give you millions of "heart" if I can! This is really too nice of you.... You make me feel so nice everytime I look at your package! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. May you have a wonderful everyday as your surprise package brings me!
Comment: Thank you. I still haven't resolved the message, but I'll let you know as soon as I have any clue! :) //EDIT later on same day: Would it be "keep warm"? :) //2nd EDIT on next day: Great! :) I was worried that I would not figure out what the message is as English isn't my first language. So I'm happy that I resolved it! Thank you again. I will enjoy some chocolate tea to celebrate this. :)
Response: YUP! i'm happy you figured it out without hints! :)
Comment: Thank you soooo much for all the lovely items! If I could, I would add 10 hearts to this rating :)
I absolutely love the clear stamps - my daughter loves the little purse with flowers and my 2 y.o. son is just in love with the snowman-stickers (he's in love with all things snowman, so this was a lovely surprise!)
thanks again.... it's a really great package :)
Comment: Oooh! Thankyou very much Veda, I like it that your items are so very different to mine! I can't wait to show off my earrings I may have to wear one of each :) And I really like the little rubber bands I never thought of that one. The notelets/gifttags are lovely too. Absolutely marvellous swap!!
Comment: multi heart package
-one heart for the fabric wrap!
-one heart for the stitch markers
-one heart, no make that 3 for the magic yarn ball...why didn't I think of that...
-one heart for the cute note pad with note...never thought of that idea either...note to self!
Comment: Thank you so much for the great envie stuffed with goodies. I love the dishcloth but it is too pretty to use. I am going to use it as a mug rug on my office desk. The stickers, stationary and the tea will go to good use. I am brewing up the tea right now as it looks yummy. Many thanks again. Wishing you a wonderful holiday. Hugs, Mona
Comment: Oh my goodness, what a completely amazing package!!! You definitely went way above and beyond the swap requirements for this! I had a pretty terrible day at work (12 hours) and coming home to your package brightened my day immensely. Oh and you are correct -- BBC Planet Earth is totally awesome =) The yarn totally rocks and I can't wait to read the zines. Seriously, thank you so so much for everything you sent!!! This is by far one of the best/coolest packages I have gotten in a very long time and it really made my night!! xoxo
Comment: Thank you! <3 I really love your package, even I have to wait until December to open the tea packets! :) They all are so pretty! Good luck for moving :) // edit in December: It's a joy to open your packets, the quotes are lovely! Thank you again! :)
Comment: Veda, this package was awesome! I love the bike tube earring, and the lickety split zine, and all of the cards and pictures. Amazing! One of my favourite packages I've gotten from swap-bot yet :)
Comment: Thank you so much! The postcards are lovely, and I'm so grateful for the Burt's Bees!!! I just ran out of my last lip balm, so this is perfect! I wish I could give you more hearts <3 Thanks again!
Comment: Awh, how lucky was I to have you as my partner again for a punk swap! I got your package today and it was simply punk all over the place and I drank it all up in one sitting. Thanks fer the screens by the way I'll be using them soon I'm sure eheh. And I think I'm agoona bundle up that consent page and make copies of it to put around my campus because it's message should be for all eyes and taken seriously so thank you.
Response: yay! consent is a message to be spread! i am nursing an idea for my very own consent game zine-- i'll send it to you when i actually gets done!
Comment: I am only half way through, but you've completely spoiled me already! I do feel like the craft fairy paid me a visit! I appreciate all of the effort you put into personalizing this swap! You're the best!!! (I hope your partner did the same for you!) Take care, Karen
Comment: I just could cry I'm so happy with my owl goodies. I've never seen those stickers and adore them...and I still am not sure how you knew I love to do paper boxes and sculptures. I don't have that on my profile, but I'm obsessed lately. I can't wait to try those.
The most amazing thing is the banner. I am going to hang it on my country shelf that has pegs because I never have anything lovely for them. This is beautiful. I would like to give you a hundred hearts and then some.
Comment: Hey, thanks so much for the Punk! Punx! Up The Punks!! package. Honestly, one of the best swaps I've received. I love buttons and I added that one to the collection on my bag plus I patch up a lot of my clothes. If you wanna do another punk-inspired swap with things or just zine message me sometime :)
Response: i am so glad you enjoyed! this was a great swap!
Comment: thank you for spoiling me looking forward to trying the teas and enjoyed the chocolatre dolllar also thanks for the cute card and the floss it can be expensive here

Comment: Love my stuff! And can't wait to have my caup of tea! You were so sweet! I got it Saturday, but waited to rate because i felt so bad. Wanted to be able to make sense when I typed! lol Have a great week!
Comment: Oh my goodness what a wonderful package. I want to learn how to thread crochet with beads and those pink ones will be PERFECT!! Ty loved the stickers, we loved the heart beads and the cross stitching floss. And of course the teas!! This definitely brightened our day (and it was actually going really well to begin with.) Thanks so much!!!
Comment: Thank you! Loved reading the zines - zines have always confused and intrigued me in equal measure, so having three of my own has allowed me to really appreciate the medium and it's inspired me to try making one of my own. I loved the printed fabric, and will be turning it into a cushion; and I gifted the information leaflet to a friend :)
Thank you so much!
Comment: I am not sure if you know how special that Canadian note card / art card was to me, but it was... Thank you so sooo much! I loved all three cards, but including that one was just icing on the cake. I think I actually might frame it, it's so nice. Thank you again. You went above and beyond for me and I appreciate it. :)
Comment: Thankyou so much for the full red folder received today! There was ALOT in it. Love it all, esp the bags and ribbon. It will all get used ! Again, thankyou!
Neat wildflower seed paper heart too!
