Comment: OMG, You are from South Gate, Ca. ! Oh wow! You are the very first person I have run into from there! I lived there years ago, as a child. I was an Army Brat back in the 60's & part of 70's. We lived there in South Gate for 5 years. I really miss it! Anyway, thank you very much for the pretty Christmas card & the Christmas stickers!
Response: Hi Debbie!
Yes, and I'm actually moving next month. I also spent a few years here as a kid and returned 2 years ago. Nice to meet you, virtually :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful handmade card. I love that paper series.Thank you also for sharing the cool stickers! I feel bad that you used 4 stamps. You only needed 1 and maybe .10 one. I appreciate your making sure it didn't arrive with postage due. That actually happened to me 3 times last month with swaps. Take care, Happy Swapping :)
Comment: Elizabeth - I received your Christmas card, But, it wasn't signed by you, no greeting, received completely Blank card, No info identifying the swap. This is why I rated you a "3." Christmas card was sent extremely late. Perhaps if you had sent your swap on time I would have rated you a "5." But I cwonn't change the "3" rating.
Nov 25, 2017, I received message from you asking for my address. April 23, 2017 she was on swap - bot but hadn't contact me until '2017, & I hadn't received her Christmas card. I sent you messages, put messages on your profile about the Christmas Card Swap you hosted in Dec. 2015. You were to send me a Christmas Card, the swap deadline was Dec. 18, 2015. You were off s - w thru Dec. 20th. I checked my mail box thru Jan. 14th 2015. I don't like rating you down for your swap.
Response: Yes, it was sent on December 14th, and was just thinking it should should've arrived. However, its the holidays. I will send out another one on 12/18.
Comment: Unfortunately, I have not received anything for this swap. I messaged you on 12/22 and heard back on 12/28 that you were going to resend. I messaged again on 1/9 and have not received a response. I will be very happy to rerate, if you are able to send. Thank you! ADDED 1/18: Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, I have not received it yet. As I mentioned above, I will be happy to re-rate if I receive it. Thanks! ADDED 1/20: I received the package today. Thank you for the very generous package, including the ATC, an extra ATC, and other goodies. If I could rate a 3 with a heart, I would. But unfortunately, it was sent so long after the deadline. Thank you!
Response: I sent it priority and it should've arrived already. Let me know if it has, or I'll resend with signature requested. Sorry.
Comment: Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for sending the delightful pair of penguins waving hello to me. It brought a smile and happiness to my day! Thanks for the extras to. I had tried to rate earlier but my computer was not co operating mainly because my son was playing on his gaming system which lagged mine. ugh! Anyhoo! I hope you have a great Christmas Season!
Comment: Thanks for the cute Swap-Bot items and Christmas labels. :o) I love the card too and noticed the postmark is Santa Claus! :o) (I don't know if all post offices are doing that, but that is the first Santa Claus postmark I've seen.) :o) Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you, Elizabeth! I received your card today and it was really a pick-me-up! I loved the Swap-bot stickers, postcard and Christmas tags/stickers you enclosed. It made for a really fun mail day. Thank you and have a Merry Christmas! :)
Response: Awe, I'm so glad! Have a lovely holiday season!
Comment: Thank you so much for your journaling. I really enjoyed reading and i loved the depth you put into it. I really felt like i connected to you and knew you. Thank you for the extras you put in there. I loved everything and cant wait to use it.
Comment: I hate to do this, but... The swap was due to be sent on May 9th, and was marked sent on the 13th. I messaged you to see if you had recieved my collage, and posted a message on your wall letting you know I haven't recieved your collage. There has been no response-- no communication at all. I will change this rating if/when I receive anything. UPDATED 5/31/14: thank you for resending this swap with corrected postage. You do beautiful work, and the quote is lovely. i plan on framing this. thank you :-)
Response: TRACKING NUMBER: 9114901123086511205016 Priority Mail will be delivered tomorrow.
Having issues with new postal person. Resolved now that pur regular person is here. Most of my swaps were picked up but not received. Also, I had not been online to view comments or messages, hadn't seen your messages until I logged on. I've been swapping long enough to give time and coutesy to my partners. Stuff happens. Resent priority. Should arrive tomorrow. Thanks for waiting, and I hope you change once you receive.
Comment: Thanks, Elizabeth. You used very interesting paper and I'm glad you wrote a full page for each answer. I haven't had time to read it all yet - I like to rate when something comes so I don't forget. I'm sorry it was sent late but I don't usually give 3s for late senders.
Comment: Awesome zine! I love it...I love studying holistic health and try to learn all I can. This will be a great little cheater book I can use to memorize the 7 major chakras. Last week I went to a conference where there was a speaker who used this idea of color and chakras to help work on weight loss. Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you so much for your un-journal! I've only glanced through the pages but what I saw was really interesting and I can't wait to have time to sit down and really read all the prompts well! Thanks for joining my swap!
Response: I love this swap! Thank for creating & hosting. Would love to penal if you're interested. Thank you for the heart & rating!
Comment: I'm going to rate you a 5 because the quality of this ATC is very good. Love the details, original design, and depth of color and texture. However, there were some problems. This was mailed several days late and you did not let me or your other partner know about the delay (you were online the day after the swap was due to be mailed so you had ample opportunity). Also, somewhere along the line the post office determined your envie to be non-machinable so it came to me postage due (20 cents, no biggie, just wanted to let you know -- sometimes they return to sender for this). Thanks for joining my swap and sending such cool DOD artwork.
Response: Thank you for understanding and your kind words. I will make note of this and act accordingly going forward. Than you for the rating.
Comment: OMG! Thank you so muchfor the wonderful journal! The zentangles on each page are lovely. The prompts are thought-provoking. And you bound the book yourself!!!! Wow! I totally love this journal! Thank you. :)
Response: So glad you liked it. I've been binding my own journals for almost a year and I love it! Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for ALL those great ATCs and for using all different colors (love them) as well as all the sun/organic inspirations - SOOO me! These look like tons of fun to make - will have to give them a try! Thanks again!
Response: I'm happy you liked them! Thank you for the heart and rating. Have fun and happy swapping. I had a blast making them, thanks!
Comment: Wow! I wish I could give you more than one heart. Your photos on the cards are gorgeous! I really appreciate your thoughtfulness in sending nature photos, the little singing boy & especially the beach one! That was great. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! Yes, they are shot on film, as opposed to digital. Thank you for the heart and rating. Would love to swap anytime!
Comment: Loved it!! I'm really enjoying filling it in too! Sorry for the late rate, but I just moved into a new place and I haven't had the internet!! It's been so neat meeting you and swapping! Namaste :)
Comment: Thank you for the nice card and recipe...soups are my favorite winter food :) The themed gift (notecard) was very unique!! May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! PEACE!
Response: You're welcome! I love soup and this is a staple and holiday recipe in the winter. Happy Holidays. Thank you for the 5 and heart.
Comment: Loved, loved, LOVED your journal! I received it Saturday, so I had a long weekend with it. I plan on mailing tomorrow or Thursday if that's not too long to keep it. It'll be less than a week having it. I learned a lot looking at your altered journal pages. :-)
Comment: What a scaree story! I'm so glad that such an awful sounding injury hasn't left you in permanent pain. You will have to tell me more about yoga. I took one community ed class and was intrigued, but didn't follow up with more.
Comment: Thanks for the comment!! I do so hope you will try making quilts...I actually make the tops (pieced or applique), but I send them out to have them machine quilted...can finish them a lot quicker that way...hA!! Thanks again!
Response: Thank you for hosting!! I had so much fun making these!! I even made some from cardstock but didn't buy the glue in time. I'll have ready when you do another envie swap...Loved it!!! Thanks for the heart and taking the time to rate!!
Comment: WOW!!!! You and I think alike, I LOVED the journal, received it today...You did an awesome job with embellishing it and all..I'm like you, I thought about keeping mine too and make a new one for my partner, this swap was such a blast and I hope to do another one. Your journal ROCKED!!!!!
Response: awwww...thank you so much for you awesome words!!! I'm so glad you loved it and it went to a good home. Thanks for the heart! We should do a private one...!!!????
Comment: The nice cards you sent saved you from getting a 3 on this one. No note included per swap requirements, please read swap descriptions closer. Also it's good to write the name of the swap somewhere on or inside the envelope.
Response: D'oh! total newbie move...i was so excited i overlooked a requirement. *headed to the corner*
