Comment: Thank you for the goodies you sent. I love the ephemera you sent with the traveling girl and with the girl sitting with the crown on. I also don't think I can get enough tags. I like them. Thanks a bunch! OOH LA LA! Take care and be safe!
Comment: Hi, thank you for everything! Love the little notecard,coloring pages and esp the easy as pie note paper. The prayer things aren't for me , but I have a personal trainer who is very religious and I will give them to her. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
Comment: Thank you for the tags and I also like the unique paperclip you packaged them with. I interperated the requirements for this swap differently than what you sent, but I can see that what you sent could just be another way of interpreting it.
Comment: Yay, we're getting ready for fall! Thanks for sending the pumpkin and Halloween things- it's still so hot and summery here in Phoenix that I forget autumn (my favorite season) is right around the corner for most people!
Comment: Thanks -- it was a very attractive and fun package. We are in such a heat wave I don't feel like doing anything difficult so I think I'll settle on w porch chair with one of the coloring pages and a set of marking pens.
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas card and goodies <3 So sorry for such a late rating, I am working my way through a giant snailmail pile. After having covid through the holidays, I put off opening all of my Christmas cards. I hope you and your loved ones had a nice holiday ^^
Comment: Thank you for the unique items in my envelope! Love the musical stationary. I had never seen postcards from comic books! The stamps are also really nice to have! It was so much fun to open. Thanks again.
Comment: Hope I am rating the right swap. The insert says stuff the envelope but I only have you for a partner for this swap so I am hoping I am right. Thanks for the frog sticker envie and the other cute stuff.
Response: Looking at your profile, I see that you are new at swapping. This swap was senders choice . I been swapping for over 6 years and this is not a valid reason for a low rating, I will resend as a courtesy, kindly review yours rating.
Comment: What a fun happy mail to open! I am excited to use everything you included. Thank you so much for the unique items and wide variety of things! Mail like yours is why I've come to absolutely love Swapbot. <3
Comment: Thanks for the swap and the lovely PC.
I was not familiar with "The Woman In..." so I checked it out at IMDB.com. A nice "satirical psychological drama" sounds good. I'll watch the first episode this evening.
Comment: Love this little Valentine pocket and the fun things you tucked inside. I must share this one with my granddaughter. She loves anything Disney and has worked at Disney World in the past. I'm happy that I get to keep the beautiful paper you wrapped around everything! Thank you.
Comment: Hi Patricia and thank you so much for this cute flat mail Valentine pocket! This was such a fun little project and I love what you made for me. The Mickey Mouse paper is too cute, and thanks for all the special goodies you packed inside the pockets. So fun - thanks again!
Comment: Hi Patricia,
I received your swap on Monday, January 18th. The swap you sent was very nice and I can tell you that what was inside the envelope reflecting my likes on my Swap-bot bio that I completed when I became a participant on the site.
I appreciate how you mixed the package so your gift reflected me and my likes. Thank You for your thoughtfulness and I look forward to using what you sent to me.
I hope we meet again on Swap-bott. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!
Response: Awwww you are so sweet, you made my day.
Comment: Hello Patty,Thank you so much for the envelope full of goodies. I adore the tag with butterflies. Did you make it? I think it's beautiful. I like the way some embellishments are sewn on, then the many layers. I appreciate your thoughtfulness!! thanks again! Luisa
Comment: Hi Patricia! Your card arrived. You marked it Sent on 11/11, but it wasn't postmarked til 11/17, and it arrived 11/20. I'm going to open all my cards closer to Christmas. That'll be fun. Thank you!... Karla, 11/27; UPDATED: Thank you, Patty, for the card and quotes you included. And thank you for the new Christmas card and envelope set for me to give to someone! Have a Merry Christmas! 🎄😊... Karla, 12/2/21
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for my things! I love the wonderful variety that you sent! Where, oh where did you get GRINCH PAPER? It’s awesome! The papers with the knot-tying and the ones with the mice are very interesting! After seeing a recent Blackbeard special, I’ve been wanting to learn some handy knots and after reading about the different mice, I wanted to see the rest of the pages about them! Lol!
Comment: Patricia this was such an awesome and creative idea for a swap!!!! I love it abs hope u host another just like it soon. I enjoyed it so much thanks for the stickers, the PCs the recipe cards and bonus. Thanks !!! I esp love the I am enough washi. Thank you 😊
Response: Thank you for the sweet and kind comment/ rating.
Comment: Hi Patricia,
I am sorry to be so late in rating your swap. I'm not being lazy, but have been really sick for the last month. This long illness ended with me in the ER twice and 1 Urgent Care in 5 days. My visit to Urgent Care got me in an ambulance and in the hospital after more evaluation in the ER. They are still unclear about what caused my whole body to tailspin and I could have had seizures or even passed away. This has been scary!
So, I want to say Thank You for your generosity and kindness over this last month. Thank You for your caring swap and for a GREAT swap. Happy Swapping until we meet again.

Response: I hope you are feeling better. And recover soon, I will love to send you a little happy mail to bright your day if it’s ok with you.
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful pkg. Love the hand drawn ATCs, the heart die cuts, London photo, die cut couple and the magazine page. I have a dream house journal that I paste pics from magazines for home decorating ideas. Not that my house will EVER look like a magazine spread:) Hope you get some fun stuff too! Take care.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful swap! I am most excited about the Christmas paper of which I have none and last winter had hoped to collect some for winter crafting.😍. So many other great goodies, he for the effort to compile such a great swap.
Comment: Thanks Patty! What an incredible surprise! I love your little envelopes! I thought they were so cute on the front and then you gave me some little ones inside!! :) Thanks for all the uplifting quotes as well!
Comment: Hi there! My apologies for the late rating! I had packed a lot of things away while our craft room was getting a bit of a remodel - I’m still unboxing things and found your swap! Thank you so much for all the goodies, they’re perfect, and the envelopes are lovely! ❤️
Comment: I like these kinds of swaps! Surprises! Thank you so much for all the goodies.I love the Hope and Joy little card.The Christmas bags are cute.with my brain I constantly use memo sheets.ANd the card is beautiful! Thanks again~
Comment: I will use up the 2 note cards and 2 thank you cards you mailed for this swap. Thank you. Nice to see a homemade envelope too. I used to make mine but time is limited lately but hoping to get back into it after the holidays. Have a great Thanksgiving.
Comment: On my goodness wow! I loved all of it, the junk journal, decorated paperclip, and tiny stuffed envelopes are adorable!😍. I LOVE it all, thank you so much for the time, love, and effort you invested into this happy mail.💌
Response: Awwww what a sweet review, I am so happy you like it.
Comment: It looks as though we both appreciate the same style in crafting. I’m really enjoying your creation. I especially like the small square embellishment with a bit of lace. I look forward to meeting at the mailbox again.
Comment: Thank you so much for such a loaded swap!! You spoiled me, I felt like Alice in Wonderland opening up the tiny envelope! I love all the postcards! esp the vintage looking one! ANd your envelopes are beautiful. Thank you again
Comment: Thank you! Super cute items that I will use in crafting. Those mini envelopes must be a pain to make. Are those scissors that cut perforations or is it dies? If it's scissors, where did you get them?
Comment: Hi Patricia! These clusters are so pretty. I love the golden accents, the pearls and jewels that really add so much and they're the perfect size for me. What was absolutely amazing, though, was that gorgeous pocket flip book that contained the clusters--wow--talk about an extra! Love the little tabs on the size. So creative--wish I knew how to make them! Thanks so much and I hope we get to swap together again soon!
Response: You are so sweet, your rating comment made my day.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the adorable items!! I love how you decorated the envelope. I loved going through everything, like Christmas! I am learning to journal so these will be just right to start my first journal. Thank you again for a great swap!
Comment: Oh what a fabulous envelope to receive! I love the tag and ATC...just so CUTE! And the happy little stash of Christmas cards and embellishments is wonderful; I feel the "Christmas spirit" coming! Thank you for being a fabulous swap partner, Patricia.
Response: Awwwww thank you for the sweet rating. Happy swapping
Comment: Holy cow, Patricia! I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful little junk journal! It's fantastic...and full of great ideas that I may incorporate into my own future junk journals; primary being the torn strips of book page, which adds so much more interest than a simple solid book page. One of the very best things about swapping is the opportunity to learn new techniques and ideas from swap partners! Thank you for providing me with a beautiful little journal and with inspiration galore!
Response: You making me blushed LOL. I am so happy you like it. Happy swapping, happy crafting.
Comment: Wow! Where do I start!? Thanks so much for all of these wonderful goodies. I LOVE the handmade items- these are the tiniest handmade envelopes I've ever seen! Lol and i appreciate the little handmadw journal, washi samples, stickers postcards, stamps and quote and everything else! Thanks for hosting! Great swap

Comment: Hi Patty and thank you so much for the journal page with the pockets - stuffed with so many fun things! Your journal page is really fun - I love the different papers and patterns, and love all the tags and goodies you tucked in. And those tiny little envelopes you sent me - they are so cute! Thank you so much - they must be fun to make!
Comment: Thank you for the most lovely journal. You put so much thought into every detail. From the gorgeous button on the front cover, to all the yummy handmade embellishments to the kitty cat book page (which is going straight into my cat jj), I love every bit. :D
Comment: Thank you for the adorable tiny envelopes, stamps, and paperclips. I am super happy about the recipe, as well, as my daughter has been requesting I make lemon bars and I didn't have a recipe. Coincidence????
Response: Awwwwww if life give you lemons....make lemon pie LOL. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: June 8 - Finally received and re-rating, Could have rated a 3 but I am not a petty person. I understand Her being frustrated but her tone On the note inside of the envelope and profile and unapologetic attitude is disappointing and definitely not on me, especially when everything she wrote suggest I am telling a lie of not receiving. she stated this is the 3rd sent and mad that she had to resend. I am a happy soul person - this drained my energy - I Don’t look forward to swapping again with this swapper.
I have received from everyone besides 2 and that includes this swapper. Listen - I don't get down like you suggesting - what would I gain from saying i didn't receive your swap, I am disgusted that I am being suggested to be a bad swapper and to be watched in her profile because i have not received what she sent. I have kept touch and answered every time she messaged, what more can i do. I am blessed with more than enough to craft and design with, i don't need to take. I rate within a day of receiving - I have not received from her but am i calling her a flaker, nope because i dont think she is, to suggest i am because i am new here, not new swapping - is a disgusting thing to do. I will re-rate when i receive
Comment: Thank you for the great items! Love the mini envelopes! I was suprised to see even smaller envelopes inside! I have been wanting to get a mini envelope maker. After seeing these, i m ording one from Amazon today:-). Thank oyu for the vintage ephemra:-). Have a great day and happy swapping!
(sorry for the delayed rating). Please see my profile page if you are in need of an explanation.
Comment: (So sorry this is such a late rating!)
WOW, Patricia, thank you so much for this— my absolute favorite thing here are the vintage BANK NOTES. I rarely receive things like that and i just love them so much. Will keep forever— thanks!
Comment: Hi Patricia and welcome to the group. I want to encourage you with a short saying that I remember when I’m down: “your current situation is not your permanent reality. The best is yet to come!” Indeed it is 💜💞 be strong and be safe and be well! Your new friend, Shannon
Response: Awwwwww you are so sweet. Thank you sooooooo much for the extra lovely rating.
Comment: Hi Patricia! Thank you for the wonderful items in the Quick Pick Swap! I loved it all and my favorite was the 3 fold envelope made with book pages. Do you know of a tutorial on how to do it? I love book page ephemera, I watch the Paper Outpost on YT all the time! :-)
Comment: oh my goodness. I am not exaggerating here. You have set the artistic STANDARD for what I WISHED my best swaps could be! Just amazing! This just made my day.
Where did u find all the vintage cut out people? (Mind you, i showed the envie to my family, and my mom wanted me to ask you)
Second, i loved the AMAZING artwork that went into the homemade envelope.very inspiring!

Response: Awwwww so happy you like the items. Thank you for the lovely rating.
Comment: Thanks so much for the kit. I did not however see a theme but think I can figure one out. Also...I did not see a shaker bag enclosed or anything to make one unless it was the little yellow mesh bag with the ephemeral pieces. I loved the extra goodie notecards!
Comment: I wish I could give you 10 hearts...love the little books. I also make little books by cutting them from the spine of old magazines...try it, you can make them any size and the resulting pages are always fun!
Response: Awww thank you for your awesome comment, it made my day.
Comment: Sooo, um, the note said to Becky and it's for Valentine's Happy Mail, so I don't know if the contents were correct, but I am suspecting they are for this swap because you did send some very nice Valentine's stuff and I thank you for all of it!
Response: Oppppsss sorry about the name error, but glad you like the goodies, And thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Patricia! This little clutch is simply adorable. I'm so sorry you had issues with the construction--was it the top edge that folds over? That one gave me fits, too! Seriously, I'm very pleased with this and many, many thanks for all the sweet extras you included. Re any of the swaps in the YTPC: I always mean for them to be inspirational--not necessarily to copy something exactly--so it's all good! Love it!
Response: You are so sweet, I was so worried. I really enjoy the swaps, love to create new things, thank you for the lovely rating. FYI I received an awesome clutch from my partner ( I thought you might like to know as an organizer)

Response: awwww. I am glad you like the envelope. Happy holidays
Comment: Hi Patty, Wow, you got your swap out fast! Thank you! It really made my day opening up all the little surprises packaged up so creatively! You put a lot of thought and care into all of the gifts, so very nice of you. Itâ€™s all fun stuff that Iâ€™ll use and will think of you when I do. Thanks again, this is a great swap!
Response: I love this swap!. and I was getting reasy before the partner was posted :-). I am happy you like it. happy swapping
Comment: Lovely stamps on the envelope which was also decorated with love and care and some great paper ephemera inside which certainly brightened my day and made me smile. For your next swap of covers where the swap is based on the stamps on the envelope you should probably take some care not to tape over the stamps though. I'm sure if I'm careful I can peel it off hopefully. xD Also just so you know the swap instructions said to put more than 5 stamps on the envelope which I initially thought 5 was enough so I would definitely not rate down for that as it was a very easy mistake to make in my opinion. I left a note on the swap page about possibly changing the name to 6+ stamps on an envelope to make it more clear.
Comment: Swap was late and you didn't respond to my message, but I don't believe in sinking someone's rating just because. Nice swap, but communication in the future would be appreciated as I doubt most on here would not be as lenient with their ratings. :)
Response: Please accept my apologies for the delay. thank you for the rating. best regards
Comment: So sorry for taking so long to rate. I have been very sick for over 3 weeks. I absolutely loved the package I received. It was exciting and everything thing was perfect. I loved the way you packaged each item thank you so much. If I could give you more stars I would.
Response: awwww you are so sweet. I hope you are feeling better. happy swapping. best regards
Comment: Hi Patty, Your package arrived yesterday and I still can't decide to open it or wait until Christmas. Thank you for the extra goodies.
I will pass on the ornament too.
Response: no rules. I always tell my kids, yes they are special days, like birthdays, events, christmas, but we should celebrate every day. Sometimes i buy them a present just because i love them and that makes me happy. So in another words is christmas every day!!! with or without presents. :-)
Comment: My Valentine swap was waiting for me when I got home from vacation! I love your handmade flower. You must have used part of a grocery sack. What great recycling! Thanks for all the other goodies! Great swap!
Response: AWWWW happy valentine's, happy everything. thank you for the heart
Comment: Wow - Love it all - and love that hand-made note-card that Gabbi made - of the gorgeous Fairweather Range, in Alaska. Thanks for a great swap - Hope you run this again sometime down the line. Happy day to you.
Response: awwww you are so sweet, thank you for the nice rating

I just received the second one, it's lovely! I adore Matisse, the shapes and textures I've always found rather appealing. I would still love to send you another back for your trouble!
Response: thank you for the heart. happy swapping!
Comment: Hi Patty!
Thanks so much for the awesome pocket letter! I love it! I would never guess that you struggled with it since you love to work with colors - it's beautiful and so creative - I would have never thought to use black paper and draw/write with a white pen - I will have to use that idea! Thanks also for all the goodies.
Response: thank you for the sweet comment and the heart. happy swapping
