Comment: Sorry to see you go. I will change if I receive a resend. 2/8 - Thank you for the resend, especially since you have decided not to continue in swap-bot for now. Hopefully, your life will settle down and you will come back. I look forward to being in one of your swaps again. You were a great host and partner. Joy

Comment: Thank you for the great selection of silver things! Silver was a hard one for me as well. The tea spoon and the candle I especially liked. I actually had to give away the bag to a coworker, she loved it so much!ðŸ˜‰
Comment: OMG!! Can I just say wow. I feel like I didn't send enough:/ Everything is amazing. The flower is so beautiful. The colors and themes are just perfect. So many wonderful treasures.

Comment: Fabulous envelope! I'm so grateful that you didn't tape it like you were thinking you needed to. If the inside gets messed up, I think the outside might still retain its color. Thank you very much for a great piece of mail art. :-)
Comment: This was such a great package to get in the mail! LOVED all the stickers and the hand-decorated envelope, but yes, my favorite was the notecard - AND the little "window" - I'm going to find ways to incorporate that into my next craft! Thanks for making me feel so special!

Thank you, Miranda <3 (And the tea holder is so flipping cute- squee!)
Comment: WHAT AN AWESOME PACKAGE! Now, where to begin?!!!!!!!!!!! :o) So appreciate the fabulous red (my favorite color) decorated box! Loved opening every single thing. You should have heard me! Thanks SO much for the bath cubes, the two facial essence masks, pink exfoliating gloves, lush bubble bars (I have never had one!), and Olay â€œfresh effectsâ€ (which I am VERY curious to try). All of these have promptly been placed in my â€œrelaxation/pamper meâ€ basket! And I was SO GLAD someone finally sent me an eye mask!!!!! I will be using this regularly for sure! Yippee! Thank you also for the 3 packs of Bubblicious gum and very cool retro looking Glee gum! All with real sugar! AWESOME! But wait . . . thereâ€™s more! I am going to have such fun using all of the assorted embellishments! I counted not 1, not 2, but 15 different packages of lovely goodies for crafting! I feel so spoiled! But wait . . . thereâ€™s even more!!! COFFEE!!!!! Love the two boxes of K-cups you sent and have already been treating myself to their wonderful flavors! And so excited to try the additional 3 cute packages of flavored coffee as well (red velvet, texas turtle, and Kahlua). YUM! The Chocolate Milano Biscotti was gone in a blink (so, so good). And I literally squealed when I opened the Fiskars Postage Stamp easy squeeze punch!!!!!! I am truly, truly spoiled. You so totally made my day!!!! Thanks you for all your thoughtfulness and the time you took wrapping everything. I LOVE IT ALL!!
Comment: I loved the stamps you used, I will be adding them to my collection. The Dracula one is my favorite. It's not often you get to see older stamps on incoming mail. The owl card is also adorable, the butterfly & flower stickers are georgous. The samps are going to be perfect for some artist trading cards. I absolutely love love love Washi tape, and of corse you can never have too many note cards. :)
Response: I'm happy you like it! i remember putting the dracula stamp on, i thought it was cool!

You were a great swap partner!

The package was unbelievably unique and I loved everything inside, especially the tea infuser. You truly went above and beyond on this swap, and I am so grateful that you reached out to me to do this provate swap. You are an exceptional young lady and anyone who may ever tell you otherwise is not worth your time. I think those whom cross paths with you are truly blessed- you radiate a beautiful sense of strength and kindness that can only leave one feeling warm and happy. Thank you so much for your beautiful swap and positive vibes!
