Comment: I got a chuckle out of the card. Silly, but amusing. Thank you too for the goodies, I love the turtle card you made and I'm plotting how to use the flamingo. Interestingly, you are the first person to comment on my ID. My maiden name was Fleming, and I was often called Flamingo. And my married name is easily seen to work as Loon. So my ID is just my name.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Office of the Damned card. That is truly an odd card. I appreciate the ATC you made it's very pretty. I love the ATC with the skull on it and the owl on the back. I have that owl signed by Tim Holtz if you know who that is. I met him at a scrapbook convention. I also love the homemade paper you made it's very pretty. Love the glitter witch and rat. Great swap thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a fun swap! I love your envelope too! It's so festive!! I wish I had one of those computer techs on the envelope here to help me sort out my laptop! HA!
I cannot wait to dive into all of these goodies and get my Autumn journal started! I gave myself a deadline to get it done by the first day of Autumn so that I can just add photos and journaling and go along!! Let's see if I can actually keep that pledge to myself! LOL!!
Comment: Thank you Magenta for all of the lace and ribbon. You packaged it all in such a clever way! I will have lots of fun using these in my junk journals and other crafting projects. Sincerely, Alma
Comment: Thank you for these gorgeous napkins! You must have been to Bath before, because you knew of our City of Ships nickname! Love your faux postage and the map envelope too! Thanks for a fun swap.
Comment: Hi Magenta, Thanks very much for all of the colorful and varied pieces of bird ephemera. They will come in very handy. My favorites are those little tiny bird envelopes. One looks like it’s meant to be a tiny tea bag. I love birds. They are so fun to watch, especially hummingbirds. Thanks again❤️
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful things! Did you make the one sheet of paper? I truly appreciate the flamingoes you sent, my maiden name was Fleming, and I often was called flamingo. You know how kids are, they have to find some was to mess up a name, and I didn't offer much fodder for them, unlike my husband.
I got into trying a bunch of swaps when I first joined, but I will be scaling back over the summer, too much to do. I'm sure I will be back for much more when it gets cold and dark.
Response: Yes, I’ve made paper.
Glad u enjoyed the swap.
Comment: You’re a doll to guess I’d prefer things other than supplies! So many great goodies it’s hard to choose a favorite. I thought it was the pocket foilio but then the snippet roll distracted me. Next it was the teeny bird envelope til I spotted the Scottie confetti. Love that and had never seen it before so many thanks for that!
Comment: What a great collection of floral and lace scraps. The Hawaii one is perfect since my husband, oldest daughter and I will be staying in an AirBnB in Hawaii on Kamehameha Highway for a few days. Love this! And thanks for the cookie wrapper. I have never heard of that treat before.
Comment: Hi Magenta, I have to apologize for the very delayed rating. OMG, I'm so sorry. Your envelope got buried under a pile of mail. I just found it today. Thanks so much😊 I think my favorite napkin is the lavendar. Thanks also for the fun goodies.❤
Comment: Magenta! This is a treasure trove a "booty" that you have shared. I love this booklet too, but the napkins oh my! I have a lot of napkins and adore getting more! Thank you! I love these letter swaps the creativity is astounding in them
Comment: Thank you for a great swap! I actually have the 500 Handmade Books!!! And several of my book making friends are published in it including those from Penland School of Crafts which is very near me! Best wishes to you for many creative days ahead!
Comment: OMG Magenta!!! (I love your name btw!) Firstly, the handmade envelope is STUNNING. I love it so much. The goodies you sent have made me so, so happy!!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Comment: I wish I could give you more than one heart! I love, love, love everything you sent. You are so creative and talented! I love the style but have a hard time letting go and coloring outside the box. And yes, I do have a lot of SU stamps, more than I probably need! Again thank you so much for everything. You made my day!
Comment: I loved your swap items! It was so much fun to receive a clear cello envelope that had buttons showing!! I do love buttons. Everything including those teeny tiny envelopes and faith based stickers were perfect choices. Thanks ever so much!

Comment: Magenta Lynn,
Your package is a joyful experience! Thanks for all the napkins, the kitty card and the leaf tab. You made my day!!
I found 2 teeny tiny folders that must have come from your swap. They are sooo cute! Thank you! I apologize for overlooking them before.
Comment: Your swap package definitely made me happy! You are only three second person in 6 years to send embossing prefer! I can't wait to try the puffy one. I've not seen it. Can't get enough of the tea bag, so cool. The papers-gorgeous. The mini pocket are adorable. The embellishments (I'm assuming you made the?), are lovely, and I love how you did the pocket sheet, cutting just above so there are another 3 pockets for little things. Brilliant. Thank you SOO much for all the happy! Oh, and the paper clips are fabulous. I've never seen those before. 💟❣️💗
Comment: Thank you for the delightful Washi samples, really like the wide tape with dinosaurs on it. That is amazing. Did you make the extra titchy envelopes, they are proper adorable.
Response: Glad you enjoyed the swap. Yes, I do make the teeny envelopes/Library packets from all of the security envelopes one gets in the mail. I’ve been quite surprised at the Numerous intricate patterns that are used. Enjoy!
Comment: Oh. My. Gawd. I love this so much! I had so much fun opening the envelope and couldn't stop playing with the grass, which I am excited to use in art projects. Your swap card is pretty awesome too! Thank you so much <3
Comment: What a fun swap! You made receiving a clear envelope super exciting by everything you displayed in there! Loved your note and all the goodies. The foreign dollar is amazing! I can’t help but wonder if you’ve visited there. Thanks for making this swap so personalized (my kids already loved up their stickers!!). Many thanks from Iowa ♥️ Debbie
Response: I’m glad you liked it! And that it arrived the first time sending it. I have not visited Trinidad and actually I thought the money was quite beautiful and kind a hated to part with it. But one thing I am practicing with swap bot is to let it go. Glad to add it to your collection.
Comment: There was no postage on this envelope. I had to pay to receive it.
Thank you for the fun items.
1/5/19 Thank you for sending a second package to make up for postage. I love everything you sent. Thank you for your thoughtfulness!!
Comment: Love the vintage fabric that was wrapped around all the goodies. Scottie dog confetti-so so sweet, and postage stamps-Coke card-thanks for reading my profile and sharing wonderful stuff with me-Happy Fall!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful swap! I love everything and it was packaged do nicely. The ephemera, the drawing, and the poem. I love that poem. A dear friend of mine introduced me to it years ago. I always think of her when I see it and smile. The hand dyed paper is beautiful as well 💜
Comment: AWESOME! You did another of the little brown girls. I'll have a collection soon! And the greenness! And the handmade paper, another shade, I am loathe to ever give it away, but eventually I will use it for something beautiful. I love the green mesh thing - stencil is exactly what I thought when I saw it - both as a positive and negative image. Such a unique and generous envie full, thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun envelope of goodies. I loved the clear envelope! I hope you don't mind if I borrow this idea and use it myself in the future. The handmade paper was wonderful. I might have to keep it rather than use it! Thanks so much!
Response: Glad you liked the swap. I am sending out some of my handmade papers because they have become too precious to me :-). I think the clear envies are great fun to find in your mailbox. Thanks for the heart
Comment: I really love the swap cards you made. I can't wait to be able to use them. I am usually the opposite of you. I make my swap cards too thick and end up needing to add $0.21 for non machinable..hahahaha. I try to restrain myself when making cards for others. :)
Comment: OMG so worth the wait, and I am just sad to think what lovely things went missing the first time. The handmade paper is amazing, and so is the ATC card, which I especially love cuz the girl is brown like my girls. That doesn't often show up in general. Everything is lovely, and I am super grateful!
Comment: I received your lovely envelope yesterday and was amazed at the time you put into the outside of the envelope, I was almost sad to open it and mess it up but I did so with ease. Thank you for the paperclips and extra goodies you tossed in, that was very kind of you.
Comment: Yay! What a fun envelope to find in my mailbox! I love every single thing you included, and can't wait to see what I make of each piece. I love your handmade and colored papers. Thank you for sharing them with me - I feel honored. I wish I could give you 10 stars. You made my day!
Comment: Oh my gosh! The tiny envies from security envelopes- is that from a die or a paper punch? Love them! Your handmade paper is gorgeous- I love love LOVE the blue fibery one- squeee! Thank you for such a great envie! 💙
Response: Glad you are happy with the swap. The tiny library pockets are from a punch from McGill Craftivity called Mini- Library Pocket.
Comment: WOW! Thank you for the time you put in the mail art! I love how colorful it is. Thank you for the goodies you included! Mini pockets... how cute! ðŸ¤— I also feel like sometimes I put too much time into my swaps, but it is all worth it to bring a smile to someoneâ€™s face. I am also learning to not hold onto items in my stash and share the love. Thank you again and happy swapping!
Comment: If I could give you 10 stars I would...this swap that you put together for me is absolutely stunning. There is such a variety and you took a lot of time making it jammed packes w butterfly goodies...The way it was packaged was such an inspiration that I def will be using. I don't know if you remember but one of the pieces you gave me was pink and it kinda looked like textured handmade paper...simply stunning!! do you remember where you got it from. I would love to order more...again I cant thank you enough xxoo
Comment: THANKS so much for my paper items you sent to me-LOVE ALL of it-one of the best swap envies I've rec'd all year!!! Loved your HM paper-how neat is that. Thanks for the KITTY things TOO
MERRY CHRISTMAS â™¥
Comment: This package deserved at least 7 1/2 stars! Thank you so much for the beautiful assortment of wonderful, interesting junk journal supplies of all kinds! What absolutely lovely handmade patterned tissue paper! There is not a single thing in this package that I don't absolutely adore, not to mention how quickly you got it in the mail, the extra items from my profile, and the cheery decorated envelope! This was such a nice surprise to come home to on a wet, dreary day. Thank you again and again!
Comment: Wow! Thank you so very much for the wonderful selection of 'Fun Fibers and Twine'! I love all that you sent and know that I use everything! Thanks again. I even enjoyed the envie in which you mailed them in. MUSHROOMS!!!! Yay~
Comment: Thank you Very Much! I will use the garland at my desk during the holidays! I not only have an interest in the Armed Services, I am employed by the VA as the front desk receptionist at our local clinic.
Comment: OMG do I LOVE the envelope you chose! Packaging is kind of my 'thing' and I love how you sent the goodies. Great things inside, too...I especially love the ballet postcard. Thanks for making my day!
Response: I am glad it brought delight. The cello envies are light in weight, so I can stuff in more goodies. As a chef you may appreciate that I use my digital kitchen scale for these swaps...I am a Newbie And at first had a few come back. I think it is fun when the packaging teases you by partly revealing the goodies. Thanks for the feedback.
Comment: Love the neat stuff you sent. So many fun bits and bobs! I especially liked that neat cording and the flashy ribbon!! Sidenote: people ALWAYS think I'm from your town, since the names are so similar :) Thank you for all the goodies!
Comment: Wow, what a great envelope! I love the way you decorated it and the bird stamp! I feed all of my neighborhood birds so that was one of my favorite stamps for this large swap. And on the inside...I especially love the browned book pages, homemade paper holder and teeny tiny envelopes - but it was all wonderful. Thank you so much for everything!
Response: Mary, I am new to swapping and I appreciate your feedback. Glad the envie made you smile.
