paperlover rated for 6x9 envie full of paper goodies on Mar 24, 2011
Comment: Robyn, when I opened your package it felt like Christmas. You really outdid yourself. The paper, the stickers, the rub-on's the memo pads, the recipe cards, the bookmark/cards, the Christmas stickers, the chipboard and the kits! I can't wait to make some cards. I used the matchbox kit as a template and cut one out with some red & white paper and made a matchbox for my friend for her birthday. She is going to love it! I just started making altered matchboxes. I've made 3 small ones so far and now my first one big enough to hold ATC's which is what I'm going to put in the one I made my friend. I wish I could give you multiple hearts. I really love everything. Thank you, thank you!!
Response: what a wonderful comment to find waiting for me, thankyou! I like getting packages that make me feel like its Christmas, so I try to do that for my partners. So glad you enjoy using the kits already! Enjoy all the rest and thanks again for the great rating!
Slytheringrrl rated for Let's Swap Coupons! #2 on Mar 23, 2011
Comment: Thanks for the useful coupons; you obviously read my wishlist. Heart is also for the handmade envie. When I get my sewing machine fixed I may try this myself.
Response: yes - I always check profiles and try to match as best I can. Hope you have better luck with your machine, I have a super cheapie craft one and it jammed after each side I'd sew, but I still love the effect and homemade envies, thanks for the heart!
catestalkergc rated for Journal February! on Mar 21, 2011
Comment: Hearts, hearts and more hearts! I have only flicked through the journal but I can't wait to sit down and read it. Your art works are funky, I love the way you made pockets out of the pages and the whole thing is visually appealing and tactile. Thankyou for putting so much time and effort into this journal for me (and I am sorry about the high postage cost you incured sending it all the way down here).
Response: your response is why I do journal swaps - thanks so much for the kind words and rating. As for the postage, that doesn't bother me - its all fun to share the journaling experience; hope you enjoy the rest of it!!

I hope that all is well with you, just checking in to all the members of Scraptopia, and I noticed things have been rough. Sending peaceful thoughts your way :)

thesimplecountrychick on Sep 23, 2010:

Hi Robyn! This is Camey and I am one of your partners in the Read and Comment Swap. We seem to have a lot of things in common. I love traveling as well and wish that I could travel all over the world (maybe someday).

I am so glad that I am not the only one that loves magazines. That is such a cool idea to make envelopes out of them. I will need to start doing that.

If you ever want to do a scrapbook swap let me know. I have tons of supplies and sometimes it is nice to get different stuff.

It was nice reading your profile and I will keep your son in my prayers. Please let him know I appreciate the sacrifices he is making for this country!

Read & Comment on your Partner's Profile

Hi Robyn! I am nlgrudis (Nora). This swap has been a lot of fun because I love reading about people. My family & friends sometimes call me "Nosey Nora" because I check people out & ask about thier lives.

You sound very interesting and artistic. Love all the scents, flavors and other "Likes" you have listed. Would be great to have you as a swap partner. I could make a great package with all the info you have shared.

Happy Swapping, Nora

Hi Robyn! I am Tina. I am one of your swap partners for the 'Read and Comment on your Partner's Profile' swap. This swap has been a lot of fun because I love meeting new people!

Congrats on your brood of children! My prayers are with you son. My brother is in the Canadian army finishing up his officer training. I worry he will get sent over. I hope this whole mess will be over soon.

I also love travelling! Nothing better then flying out on a new adventure! You should put some destination recommendations on your profile!

C.S. Lewis is wonderful. I loved his Narnia books and his other books are so thought provoking. He must have been such an interesting man to meet. Have you ever seen the film Shadowlands? It is about how he met his American wife. I think it is also based on a book.

It sounds like you like TV almost as much as me! I am crazy for my stories. Have you watched Supernatural or Big Bang Theory? I know some of the Fringe cast members are going to be at Emerald City Comic Con in March (that is in Seattle).

I am so excited that this week starts the great return of TV! (though I like how some shows are on in the summer now)

It was very nice meeting you and I hope all your swaps are Awesome swaps. -Tina
