Comment: I fell in love with the envelope first!!LOL Those paper cards are beautiful!! Did you make them?! I have never seen such nice work on cardstock like that!! Thank you so much! Cant wait to try the tea.
Comment: Nice, I especially like the beer bottle label!
Response: Oh good, I'm glad you liked it...was worried about that particular piece not being appreciated. I really wanted to use it, but never got around to it. Would love to see what you do with it, if you have the time!
Comment: Such a lovely envelope with such sweet comment on it. Makes my day. I like all the items you picked for me, but the bear card is my nr. 1 favorite .
( could it be you did not rate me for this swap?)
Comment: Looks like the return address peeled off on this swap and there was no user name identified. Swap name was written on the envie and since this is my last one to relate have to assume this is the right one! Loved the envie decorations and contents but mail date was 8/31 and the postmark date was 9/11. No more profile for the user so can’t ask for clarification.
Comment: Thank you so much for the great postcard! :) It made my day! Seriously!
New Orleans is pretty amazing. I've lived here 2 years now. I still find new places to go all the time.
My top five favorite bands? 1. Against Me 2. Crosses 3. KMFDM 4. Wardruna 5. Of Monsters & Men
If you want to be postcard pen pals, let me know! :)
Comment: THanks for the Happy Mail package, there was one item that I've never received before and can't identify what it is. You sent a little ziplock bag with a white square of paper holding two dark blue dots...paint, wax, glue, ??? I need help with this item...LOL. Happy Swapping!
Response: LoL...pretty sure that's watercolor paint. Must have forgot to label them...SORRY! If they're both dark, one is Viridian Hue and the other is Turquoise, from Cotman.
Comment: WOW love the handcrafted Iridescent metallic marbled envie (that took some craft time) with the groovy washi tapes&color changing Eclipse Postage stamp & Retro mailing label. Knew the contents would be great too. Love the PC with the Lime door & tin sign, the tape samples are all new to me & so vibrant, the self adhesive variety of mixed media ooh la la . So clever the paint samples. Nice of you to match the notepaper to my profile square gray polka dot & such a flair to your handwriting -your own font!!! Lucky Me says THANK YOU for the awesome presentation,& the handcrafting & artistic contents!!
Comment: Thank you for the hand made paper tapes! Those are always fun! I LOVE the envelope! What kind of paint did you use on that?? Love it! What is that blue sticker like thing for? Thanks again! :)
Comment: Omg, Jamie! I rated you but it didnâ€™t stick, mustâ€™ve been my error! Cripes, you send the BEST STUFF, TOO!! Thanks for your note, loved the bookmark, postcards, stickers, and cool pen - and your photos were SUPER!! Hope you had a Happy September and my apologies for the rating not sticking the first time â€” donâ€™t be so shy lolâ¤ï¸
Comment: Love the envie! I just recently got some sealing wax and haven't used it yet. Love the way yours turned out on this swap! And I LOVELOVELOVE all the stickers, ephemera, washi you included. Made my day! ðŸŽƒðŸ’Œ
Comment: Oh Wow!!! This is a great 'Happy Mail' swap. Thank you for EVERYTHING! I loved the mini journals (Just what I wanted, btw), the book pages, and the awesome Polaroid postcards. So cool and different. Thanks, again. You made my week.
Comment: Oh my goodness what a wonderful package! Thank you for everything...I especially love the images! The pen is over the top, as is how cool the invisible ink shows up! I'd love to know where you got these...and I'll check all the incoming mail from you from now on! Squeal!!!!
Comment: Hello again neighbor! You always send the most beautiful envelopes and interesting goodies! Always a sweet note, Thank you so very much for an awesome swap, I'll be checking out that pen soon! lol I hope you and yours are doing well.
Comment: What FUN! I have never heard of black light ink before! (I did dance in black lights back in my school dance days in the late '60's(my does that age me? Anyway besides the cool flashlight to see the ink-you sent some great stuff-wonderful stamps for my stamp collection-love thestrong men picture and such interesting and diverse pieces-thanks for sharing!
Comment: SQUEAL!!! This was not happy mail. This was ECSTATIC mail! Please tell me where you found all the amazing images? They appear to come from something like Flow or Daphne's Diary.... Thank you very, very much, loved it so much. (And let me not fail to mention how gorgeous the envie was, and that I adore that you used the special eclipse stamp!)
Comment: I love love LOVE the items you chose for me! So many interesting, beautiful, and unique things that I can't wait to use. Thank you! And how did you find paper to match the Kleenex box?!?! Amazing :)
Comment: Hello neighbor! That's awesome and so is the awesomeness of the goodies you sent that I will love using in my upcoming junk journal. Especially love the envelope and altered pages. I love what you sent and thanks for taking the time reading my profile. Many hearts to you! <3 Still waiting for summer...sigh...looks like it's coming back this weekend. Yay! Have a great day!
Comment: Thanks for the Portland print---very cool. And a million thanks to you for putting this supply box together. It is full to the brim with awesome supply treasures that I am enjoying experimenting with. You deserve a treasure chest full of â™¥s.
Comment: I am truly impressed by how much text you got on there! The cancellation is actually over my address, but it makes the card more readable. We have had a ton of rain as well. Well, I won't answer all your questions as I'll save them for a reply. Take care!
Comment: Thank you so much for making up this swap. You did a great job. I totally understand how having a new baby can change everything. Glad you are finally making up your swaps. I have been taking a break from Swapbot during the school year. I am a teacher and already over commit myself as it is. Perhaps this summer I will become active again. It was nice receiving mail today. :-)
Response: Oh, so glad it arrived! So sorry for taking so long to get it to you, I never stopped thinking about making it up, just didn't want to throw something together. I understand about over committing. Hope the school year is going well and hopefully we'll see you in the mail come Summer!
Comment: My weekend was nice. I rested and put together swaps for the majority of it. So, nice and relaxing. I don't have any plans for the summer yet, except I scheduled the week of my anniversary off at work. Don't know what we are going to do yet though. Hope your plans go well!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely watercolor postcard! I'm still a little shy with the FP, but growing more comfortable with my "training" pens. Will your little one do an Easter egg hunt this weekend? We've been having some beautiful weather--hope the same is true for you!
Comment: First of all, you have such cool style! I love the wood texture card, and the Barnum & Bailey stamp is just as awesome. I've never seen it before! Anyway, your quotes were super nice to read as well!
Response: Those Barnum & Bailey stamps are my fave...I've been hoarding them for a few years, now, but finally decided it was time to use them. Glad I picked the right person to share one with!
Comment: Such a pretty urban sketch postcard! Thank you! It has been consistently pouring here, so I am SO ready for summer. My tattoos do have some meaning, but they largely are for the aesthetic. I've always felt that my body isn't "complete" until I get all the artwork I want! :)
Comment: Just got the awesome postcard today! :) I like how you used the pops of color on the back of the card! My favorite medium to work with is actually yarn and thread...I love blending sewing thread with crochet thread to make doilies...spruces up those white doilies a bit :) Thank you for the wonderful card :)
Comment: I wanted to just rate really quick because I like to as soon as a swap comes in. I just opened it up and can already say that you did above and beyond on your journal and the goodies included. Im so excited to look through this gorgeous journal and I do hope your end of the swap is the same. Thank you again for joining my swap. I will update after reading through.
Wow, Im still in "wow" stage.
I love everything, Jamie.
Im going to learn how to use this fountain pen. I have never used one but always have wanted to. Thank you for everything. Excited to try the teas you sent as well, as well as use the journal and etc. I love how you write, would totally read more of your life if I were able.
Comment: Holy smokes, what an amazing bundle of stuff you've sent me! I'm stunned, there's so many fantastic bits in here! I already sent my part, but goodness, this stirs me to want to send you more. If you don't mind, I'm going to happymail you again sometime, because this bundle you've sent me is worth an astronomical amount of happy. Thank you SO much.
Comment: WOW, two weeks of traveling and it is now here, safely. I was really starting to lose hope. I am so happy!!! It is so lovely to have it in my hands and the little tear gives it some character. I love this little thing and can't wait to take it with me on adventures. Thank you so much for swapping with me!
Response: WOW is right...I'm so glad it finally arrived and that you'll give it the love that it deserves. Thanks for rating and for swapping.
Comment: WOWZA! You really crammed a lot of goodies! Theres so much to love in this envie you sent me! A few faves are the black & white vintage photo, the Full Sail coaster from Hood River Or., the journal-ling cards, the beautiful papers and ephemera... love love love :) Thanks so much!
Comment: Mail was all supposed to be sent in January. 5 items were and 2 items were not postmarked until February.
Response: UPDATE 5/15: Back from my SB break and am currently in the process of making this one up to Dena...not to change my rating, but because she deserves more than what I originally put into this one.
Comment: Jamie, thank you for all the wonderful assorted papers! I had so much fun going through everything--it was like a mini-Christmas ;+) I already have everything separated in the craft room. Wonderful!
Comment: Hey Jamie, thanks for the stocking stuffer. I am of course goin to wait till xmas to open it. so can't comment on what's inside yet hehe. I like the stamp tho! I got those same ones for christmas:)
Comment: mmmM! Love Shiner but have never tried Ruby RedbiRd... hoping its a winter brew & not summer. Lol! Will search for it tomorrow... Thank you SO much for sharing mz. Jamie! I too wish you the happiest of holidays!
Comment: I received #1 and #2 today! So exciting! We have quite a bit in common and I am absolutely in love with all of the paper products (ESPECIAxLLY those vintage halloween ones!!) I am also very excited over the labels! I love using them to address envelopes to people and have a very hard time finding them!! Thank you so much and I can't wait for the rest of the mail :)
Received #3 today and it was awesome!!! I love the metal box it arrived in (I've been wanting to mail unique boxes like this recently and it gave me so many ideas.) I can't wait to try the teas..the loose leaf ones are my favourite and I'm so excited to test them out! Thank you for such a beautiful surprise!
Received #4 and #5 today! Such lovely postcards. I've tried that pumpkin beer and I agree that the other one is better! I think one of my Favourite brands is Magic Hat! Can't wait for the last two letters!
#6 and#7- love the vintage stamps and little stamp collection to use at home! And of course the final gift of another tin of teas was so lovely! I love trying all the loose leaf teas and had gingerbread this morning!! Thank you so much for being such a thoughtful and creative penpal!
Comment: Thank you for the halloween envie and goodies! I hope you enjoyed your day a relaxation, it's important to take a day for yourself every now and then. As or the penpalling question, I have regular pen pals from places other than swap-bot.
Comment: Jamie, Thank you for the beautiful cover. I am going to keep it and try to create one like it for the next swap. I like the stamps you sent to fill in spaces in my American Heritage albim. thank you.
Comment: Thanx for the chuck of PC:-) Summer is winding down here in southern IL and cool temps are forecasted later this week. I hear snow is going to fall in the North this week. Wheee, we are in for a wonderful winter:-)
Thanx for sharing.
Comment: Hi Jamie! Love the pc and sorry that you did no enjoy the beverage! You did have me laughing though! Once I tried a beer called Moose Drool - hated it and later thought WTH would I have even tried it for - the name even sounds gross! LOL! Thanks so much for the fun Monday Happy Mail! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Sometimes you try things, just incase...LoL.
Comment: Thanks Jamie! I love the Panda stamp! The great photo of the tree! The key is great! Awesome goodies! Thanks for a fun swap! This heat has been reminding me of AZ! Except there we had automatic spinklers and a whole house Air conditioner! Hope it cools down soon too! Take care! :)
Comment: Received your swap today! I loved all the stamps on the envelope. Your mini book came out beautiful I love the rose paper. Thank you. It was my first time making the books too and I agree that this was a very fun swap.
Response: Thanks for letting me know it arrived and I'm glad you like it...was really unsure whether we were supposed to decorate the pages or not. My partner left mine blank, so I just went with it. Hope you have some neat bits to add.
Comment: Hi! Love your vintage pc and you did have a busy week! I love Seattle and hope to get to visit again at some point! So much to do and never enough time! TY for the joining the swap - I hope you enjoyed it! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: First off your pen name is a real eye catcher. Next. You found it difficult sifting thru my profile? Did you use the Table of Contents? Always, always use the Table of Contents? FOTFLMAO.:))))))))))) My profile and my quirks crack me up. I mean really who has a directory? LOL. Gurl, youre lucky I dont issue people a tour guide. LOL. LOVE LOVE LOVE my envie of delightful stash. Papers Ive never seen b4! Tea, yay for tea. Super nice surpriZe. Thank you for making my night. xoxo:))))))))))))))))))))
Comment: I LOVE my special package. Thank you so much. I just made some acrylic dots that are these exact colors. I will have a fun PL page thanks to you. I am cutting up the card you sent it all in - the colors match and I can make another card. :) Thank you very much for making it personal. It means a lot to me. I can always use some "today I will get stuff done motivation". LOL. Like today... Laaaazy day.
Comment: This pretty mail makes me very happy, the envelope is creative and pretty and I love all the goodies from the vellum words, the washi tape, stickers and all. Wish you had added a return address label so I could see where you live that you get to enjoy Cherry blossoms. I only see them in pictures. Have a lovely spring :)
Comment: Received my super mega tea swap! How amazing. I love the assortiment, and the generous amount of (extra!) tea you shared with me! Thank you so much. The tins and the sweet doily are also fantastic touches! xoxoxo
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful envie and goodies stuffed inside, I love it all. This is by far my favorite theme here on the Bot...AIRMAIL! What a joy to have a little staff of items! Hugs & Hearts, Mona
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. In the future, it would help if you label the card with your username or sign it with your real name. I had to use the process of elimination to figure out which of my partners this was from. :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the really lovely envie and bits. So many wonderful pieces! I especially like the poloroid with my username. Well done!
Response: That Polaroid was the simplest most complicated thing I've made in a while...I had to reposition the stickers like 4 times...they started out on the envie, but ended up being too big, so I'm glad you liked it...LoL.
Comment: Oh my Jamie! You have really outdone yourself! I think you understand that I love paper' lol! Thank you for such an awesome package! The pen is new to me, I can't wait to use it, and thanks for the refills. There was so much stuff in my package, it was so much fun pulling things out! Thanks again, you are an awesome partner!
Comment: Love your envelope packed full of fun stuff! It was the only mail I got today . . . definitely made my day! Thank you for such fun things. I love your handwriting by the way. It is very artistic looking. And I am curious what the story is behind your user name. :o)
Response: Glad you enjoyed the package. My username is depressing...I need to think of a more upbeat story, since many people have asked about it...LoL.
Comment: hello! Oh my gosh, thank you SO SO SO much for everything you stuffed the box with! I honestly could not even believe that you sent all that you did, I'm still in shock, haha. Thanks for the wonderful little trinket glasses jar, and the washi tape, and the little pads, stickers, but especially the pressed penny, because I collect those! What an amazing box! Thanks again! Carpe diem,
Comment: All I have to say is WOW! And- THANK YOU! You seriously out did yourself and I consider myself SO lucky to be your parner. All this tea could not have come at a better time. I have been VERY sick and tea is the only thing to help! Seriously, I LOVED every bit of what you sent. THANK YOU times a million!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the package. Would have been there sooner had I put enough postage on it the first time...guessing I hit the wrong button on the DIY kiosk. Anyways...hope you feel better soon.
Comment: Hi Jamie~
Received your lovely package yesterday! I'm so glad you embraced the swap and wrote such an upbeat, newsy note. I enjoyed reading it very much. I too, am organizationally challenged but have learned to embrace it as a result of my "creative spirit" (this is what I tell myself when I am overwhelmed ;+) Thanks for the teas--I'm having one this morning--the vanilla chai! Last but not least, the papers you sent were simply amazing--all those beautiful vintage goodies--just for me! I'm truly thrilled.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed everything. Figured you'd probably put those papers to better use than I. The Chai is one of my favorites, hope you liked it. Thanks for the wonderful comment.
Comment: I am in love with my new journal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!! And all the goodies inside. I totally blown away once again. So thankful you were my partner. It was full of surprises and I couldn't wait till Christmas to open them. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, you have no idea how on time your gifts were. Even the teas and little gum/candy box things. Thank you. Wow. You are totally a great person. No joke!
Response: So glad it arrived safely. Was starting to worry, since there were so many stamps.
Comment: Thank you for joining the swap I hosted. Thank you so much for all the goodies you sent me!! You really outdid yourself. :) Also, thank you so much also for your second letter with the washi samples.
I would give you 2 hearts if I could!
Comment: Woe thx for the great samples =)) I use a pink paperchase A5, it's a agenda - planner, household and diary/ Project life in one. Also things from my two girls are in it (homework, duties). Love al kind of tapes but also notes or sticky bookmarks. Hope that you wil find a way to use yours! Have a great day!
Comment: I received your package today. I have to say, since being back active in swaps this was the best package I have ever received! I smiled and felt so much goodness and thoughtfulness oozing through every thoughtful piece you put in the box. I am not feelin so good today an even though I am so appreciative of your thoughtfulness and I will be taking full advantage of the tea you included. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I wish I could give you a higher rating because you truly deserve it.
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed the package. Your comment means more than any rating could. I hope you feel better, soon.
Comment: What a positively stunning swap! Thank you sooo much for this very indie parcel. I'm just putting in the CD and give it a listen - its cover already looks great. Did you make the papers yourself? They're beautiful. Everything is really gorgeous, thanks a bunch. You made my day! EDIT: Wow, they sound pretty cool! Thanks for introducing me to them. ;)
Comment: wow! we really are practically neighbors! i would give you 10 hearts if i could. i loved everything in that box! my mom was even impressed, looking through everything! you did an AMAZING job! i loved the little page holders! they will work really good in my journal for project life! you read my profile and matched it very well! excellent!!! thanks so much! :)
Comment: Thanks for creative cards and special store bought. I would love to be up there for lobster festival. Once we spent leisurely drive northward through your state and into Canada. To Portland I have gone and Old Orchard Beach. Printed cards are unique. Hugs!
Comment: Thanks very much for your colorful envelope and cute blue & brown postcard! The stickers are all great, as is the faux postage. The way you wrapped them was very cute! Thank you for everything :)
Comment: Thanks for all of the NICE goodies! I LOVE your mad photography skillz. I can't wait to get both of those into my journal. That door looks so inviting...I could just walk right in after a long day and relax in there! If that's the message you were trying to relay with that pic, you were successful!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely envelope that you sent me. I loved the notecards that you enclosed, and enjoyed your note. Your handwriting was beautiful and I loved the "From Me" note that you wrote on. Just so you know, the envelope came $.20 postage due. I'm not worried about it on my side, but want to draw it to your attention incase you send out other envelopes around that weight. :P Happy swapping!
Comment: LOVE this package thank you so much taking the time to pick out items so perfect for me!!! All of the teas are types I like, I love the smell of the soap and the candle!!! and all the paper goodies too. Thanks again and happy swapping
Comment: A really cool postcard! Thank you : ) My semi-filled journals/sketchbooks are currently in a couple of boxes; I'm not quite sure what to do with them either-lol. But, they are fun to make and fill.
Comment: Thank you for the nice tea selection that arrived in your decorated envelope. I like how you used the washi tape to hold the string closure closed. I frequently do take moments to appreciate the small things :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful goodies you sent me. I will find use for all of them and use them in my smash books. I loved the little notebooks you sent. Those will be so fun to use! Take care and happy swapping!
Response: Oh, I'm glad you received it and weren't completely overwhelmed. Really glad you liked the little notebooks I made. Have fun!
Comment: Hi, I just realised I am holding your rating hostage. I Know you sent, cause I got the base card. And the picture you sent me per email looks great. It is very nice of you you want to resent. I will let you know when I received and update the rating+comment. Thank you! 14.3.13 - Received today your resend! Thank you very much! I love all the little monsters, they are watching me! Thanks, I love it!
Comment: I love this postcard so much! It's beautiful! I did the same thing - I wrote the things out and circled them. The only differences between us are that I prefer coffee (I really hate tea) and I like it out here in the boonies (it's quiet and you can walk out to the mailbox in your undies). Thanks for a great swap!
Comment: Jamie,, I feel so bad that you had to leave your doggy with your parents... yes they do make every day awesome... thank you for sharing... I am sure she misses you also.... She can't wait to come home with you I bet.... Take care...Much luck great picture... Pat
Comment: We meet again indeed! Thank you for the PC, and being thoughtful in waiting to send out the second one! I've lived in Nevada all of my life, I live in a little ghost mining town 3 hours north of Vegas. It's very pretty here but I am planning on moving to Denver as soon as I can. I love Oregon, it's gorgeous. You are so lucky to live there! The humidity would kill me though. I'm a desert kinda girl! Thanks again for the postcards! Have a great day xx
Comment: Thank you so much for the card! It is quite bizarre, but it's pretty neat. I've never considered myself artistic before! I just sort of stumble along with my watercolours. I wish I had a talent for collage, mine just never turn out right. I hope you pick up acrylics again, it is such a fun medium!
Comment: TY for the lovely pc! I so understand counting down the days until things happen! We were like that when my son was at training this summer and we counted down the days until he got his phone back, and we could talk to him, plus see him! Hope your countdown is going well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC! I am sorry I am so late rating. I am just now catching up from having the whole family home for the holidays -- 19 people for Christmas dinner! (What were we thinking when we had 4 children?!!?) Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you SO much for paying attention to my profile!!! I love the cards you made & the are exactly what I would've made for myself :) Btw, where can I get those great airmail stickers you put on the outside of the envelope?
Thanks for joining my swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful journals. After the first one got lost you were so great to make a new one and send me an extra one besides! Thank you for working with me and for keeping on top of the mail hassel. Since Thanksgiving I have had trouble with the mail for three different swaps. Thanks for swapping.
Comment: It's been a crazy weekend so I'm just getting around to rating, sorry. This arrived last Thursday, I came home from work freezing and had to go back out for a meeting...your goodies came right out of the envelope, into a cup and out the door! Yummy teas and really good coffee, thank you!!!!!
Comment: WHAT a beautiful postcard and thank you for reading my profile and sending something I really truly LOVE!!! and yes I love ALL of Jackson Browne's albums can just about sing them all by HEART haha!
Happy Holiday Season to you.... and THANK YOU so MUCH!!!!
Comment: WoW~! Sounds like you'll be busy for a while with your sister's wedding and visiting NM! No real plans for the winter.. my dad and brother ran the Marine Corps Marathon and I'm thinking of training for the Rock n Roll half marathon over the winter so I can run it in March! It'll probably be really cold still but.. you only live once! =) Thanks for the PC!
Comment: Thank you for the letter and the smash journal things! I must admit that like you, I haven't used to much of my smash book yet, though I did just do two pages for the Puyallup Fair I worked at. :D Lots of fun bits and papers I got from there! I love the smash products they have, but I usually guilt myself into not buying any cus I already have sooo much crafting stuff. XD I'm currently trying to talk myself into getting the date-stamp-thingie. Thanks again!
Comment: Jamie! I'd give you a million hearts if I could! You sent me everything I love.. trees.. interesting stamps.. tea.. and something recycled! I totally love it! I plan on returning to Thailand this summer for the 3rd time.. I'm hoping to go backpacking in a few European countries over Spring Break.. and we'll see where else the future takes me. I'd love to go to India one day.. that's a place that I've wanted to go since high school but the opportunity has never come up.. Thanks for everything!
Comment: Thanks for sending such a great package of kindness. I loved everything, but I loved your letter the most! Thanks for reading my profile and sharing so much of yourself with me. As for journaling--I love journals and writing. I don't have as much time to journal as I used to--certainly not on a daily basis--but I do carry a journal with me almost everywhere I go (for lists, notes, ideas, etc.)
Comment: I love all of the inspiring goodies you sent! Now I am all excited to play in my journal again. Yay! That nice, heavy green/white/brown cardstock I can use for a different project too (sort of a garden/potting shed/herb garden theme shadow box) that I just saw in my local craft store. It is perfect.
Comment: Thank you so much for the absolutely awesome journal you made for me. I love that you used my fave color combo. My current idea sketchbook is getting filled up fast, so this one will really come in handy. (PS--I like your user name, too.)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the great Unique items! It seems like the P.O. did some damage though they stamped on the front recieved w/ damages, but I do believe everything was in there because it was quite full, but only the envelope was damaged, it looked like they beat it up, lol. thank you & here is your heart!
Comment: This was a fun swap but full journals are a little much on postage. Really fun and thank you for you page. Love it!
Response: I agree with you about this type of swap being a little spendy. I set the rules up hoping people would send out smaller lighter journals, like my own, but found that that part got over looked by almost everyone. I enjoy being able to see everyone else's work, though, so it was worth it.
Comment: Hi Jamie, just received your package...Thank you so much for these past 6 weeks, I enjoyed your letters and every gift. Cupshakes??? WHAT?? LOL! And this journal is amazing I love it. I want to write you back soon. Good luck on the Dirty Dash...you inspired me to look into an East Coast version cause that seems so freaking fun....see ya in the mail soon and Thanks again...You ROCK!!!
Comment: Thank you for reading my profile! I love the post card, it's even more special since you aren't a drawer but you did that for me. It's super cute, you definitely have talent. Totally not going in the trash, I'm making a scrap book of hand drawn art I receive. :)
Response: Wow...this was a few years late, but I put myself into it and I got to send something I was proud of and I'm glad you liked it so much. Thank you for giving me to opportunity to make this swap up to you.
Comment: Wow! Awesome :-) Love it! My favorite color! It is in good hands. I will save it for something special, perhaps taking it with me on a wonderful journey.
Now I feel guilty for sending my partner a dishcloth!
Response: I'm glad you like it. My boyfriend about shot me for cutting apart one of his canvases to make it...LoL.
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome swap! I loved reading your version of Fill it, the teas look delicious, and thanks to you I am revisiting the sounds of Silversun Pickups. I'd forgotten how much I like this record! Cheers! Ainslie
Comment: Loves your journal. Love all the papers you used and all the postcards, extras, and drawings :) You make me want to make mine more creative!!! Thanks a lot!!!
Response: I love all the different pages in Smash* Books, so that's what made me make the journal like that. Plus, a few years ago, I was in a journal swap where we were to add an extra to each day...it was a lot of fun...inspired the extras in all my journals, now. Thinking about hosting one of those sometime next month, if things dont look to crazy.
Comment: Thank you! - I think the reason Houstonians eat out so much is because a lot of the local food takes too long to make at home - BBQ has to cook overnight, at least, and who wants to make tamales at home, etc.
Comment: wild postie!...and i loved your chatty note...and it's easy to find 10 minutes to do something creative...even if it's only to do a few stitiches in crochet or put a coat of fixative on your latest art project....whatever...keeps your art muscles flexed, which is more than I can say for my real muscles!...have fun, whatever you do...and thanks for a great swap!.
Comment: Very NICE card.. thank you so much and I can't wait to try this recipe. The card was very pretty also. I also wanted to thank you for checking up on your package to make sure that I got it... I love communication.. Take care
Comment: Hey! This arrived (yay!) the post office put it in an envelope though and stuck a sticker on the back saying "Does not meet minimum size standards of 3 1/2" by 5" or 7/1000" thick" weird....anyway, it arrived! yay! x
Comment: I LOVE the necklace and can't wait to wear it......Thank you so much. It's awesome. Hope the heart shows up on your rating, I'm having some problems here getting it to show up in the little box.
Comment: Oh, this is the most beautiful package I have ever received. You read my mind with the Sharpie Pen. I have a blue one, and it's running out of ink, but they're so expensive! Thanks thanks thanks, so much, Jamie! I can't wait to check out the cd.
Comment: Thanks so much for the beads and charms, they are lovely! //Em
Response: I'm so glad something FINALLY got to you. I'm so sorry about this taking so long...seems I'm not the only one that got burned by the seller...I've learned to not be so patient with those kinds of things. I thank you for your patients, though, and am glad you like the beads.
Response: I probably sent you two, sorry about that. There was a space to put an address on the page...plus I wanted to make sure you got it, so I added you to the email I sent my other partner. Wasn't sure how many songs you were looking for, so I hope I added enough.
Comment: Aww Jamie.. the journal arrived just now! Thank you so much!! I love all the "journaling aids" you included for me... and such a fun idea to combine the wrecking with the journaling :D Loved the "throw it across the room" instruction ...
Thank you again!!
Response: I'm glad you like it. I thought throwing it would be fun...I'd like to jump on mine, from time to time...LoL.
I'd love to see any photos or scans of things you create in it, if you have the time and don't mind sharing.
Thanks for letting me know it arrived. I hope you have a ton of fun with it.
This rating makes up for what I received...which was frankly garbage.
Comment: I really, really liked the ATC you sent to me, it was really cool. My 1st name starts with a J as well, and it really is a great letter J! It's an awesome tattoo, I don't have any of my own, but if I did, I would definitely consider getting one similar to this one. Thanks for the great work!!!
Comment: This package was AMAZING. It was the perfect pick me up to open as soon as I got out of the hospital! I love the hat. I also very much love the jar. I cannot wait to eat the jelly beans and chocolate!
Comment: What a fantastic surprise! Thank you so much for the great zippered pouch. I have become completely addicted to them. The lip balm is yummy and the pocket mirror is just perfect! Thank you! Thank you!
Comment: Hey Jamie!
Thank you so much for my swap!! I love my donnie socks!! How did you make those?? I also love the tape and the ATC cards !! I ejoyed reading your little note too!!
Thanks for EVERYTHING!!
Comment: thanks so much for the cd - i love most of the bands you included and suprisingly even though i knew artists i didnt know all of the songs so that was good :)
im giving you a heart for having good taste! haha
Response: LoL...thanks for the heart. I'm glad you like it.
Comment: Thank you for sending the discs. I will enjoy listening to them. Because the swap is seven months late I am giving you a three, even though you sent a very nice and generous selection. Best regards to you.
Response: Now that life has mellowed out, I messaged this user in order to get this swap completed. I have heard back from this person, now, and am on my way to getting it completed. i hope she enjoys it just the same, even though it's so late.
Comment: Loved all your papers. Thanks for the extra large package!! I only had one sheet that was even close to anything I have in my collection. I am going to have to use the "things to do" pages to list out projects to do using these papers.
Comment: Hello Jamie,
Thank you for the black and white inchies you sent to me as part of the "Black and White Photo Inchies" Swap. I have enjoyed looking at them and trying to figure out if they go together into one picture or if they are just a scrambled set of inchies. I have a couple sets of inchies I have received from other inchie swaps I have participated in and so I will gladly add your collection to my ever-growing inchie collection. I have enjoyed doing this new form of art--just a mini of an ATC, I feel. I am sure this is our first time to have an oppourtunity to swap with one another. Welcome to my swapping family. I hope we have further opportunities to swap with one another. Until our next meeting, I hope that you have been having positive and rewarding swap experiences. As well, I hope that you have a fabulous 2008!
