Comment: Jocelyn, WOW!!! I am just at a loss for words right now!! First of all, I am always in the mood for some Halloween ATCs, no matter what time of the year, LOL!! I love them both SO SO much!! They are perfect in every single way and I am super excited to add them into my collection:) Secondly, you are so generous, I can't even believe how many goodies you sent me!!

Response: You are so sweet! Your message made my day. I am so happy to hear that you really enjoyed this swap! I had so much fun putting it together for you 💖💖
Comment: Thank you for everything. I just lost my husband unexpectedly (his cancer went to the lining of his brain) on Nov. 21. It may be awhile before I get to your letter, however, I will write back when I am able to. ♥
Response: Oh no! That’s rough. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Thanks for letting me know that you’ve received and no worries about responding. You have a ton going on - take time for yourself. *hugs*
Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap! I especially love the vintage sticker sheet - those are going to be hard for me to use. They are from the year I was born! :)
Also! What kind of marker did you write my name with? It’s purple from one angle and teal from another - so beautiful!!
Response: I’m so glad you enjoyed the swap! For your name, I used colorshift watercolor paint :). Watercolors are a lot of fun to play with!
Comment: Thanks for the cute postcard. Just a reminder to include your Swap Bot ID. Thanks!!!
Response: Thanks for the rating! :) There should have been a label on the PC (towards the bottom) that stated the swap. The label has my ID preprinted on it. I wonder if the ID part was covered up by the post office. I’ll be sure to write it on another spot within the PC.
Comment: All the hearts!!! What a joy it was to receive your swap. My jaw dropped when I saw the stunning lettering with the sparkle in that beautiful shade of rich blue-teal. You are very talented and getting to receive something as nice as that made my day! Can I ask what kind of glitter pens you buy? The bunny sticker with the mailbox is so cute too. Everything, all the details. I could go on! :) Thank you for all the energy you put into it. ❤️
Response: I am so glad you liked it! Those pens are my absolute favorite to play with. They’re called Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic Liquid Gel Roller Pens and comes in a set of 8 (2 of the 8 aren’t so great: the silver and gold - but the rest are dual and cool!). It’s about $16 on Amazon. I’m so glad you enjoyed the card and extras! :)
Comment: WOW! What a wonderful surprise. First of all, your handwriting is beautiful! I loved the "get to know me" sheet. What a fun idea! Thank you for the goodies and pizza recipe, can't wit to try it! And thank you SO much for the letter! I'll write back!
Response: I received your letter and am excited to write back. You have lovely handwriting!!
Comment: . I have REALLY enjoyed talking to you this past week. Maybe we can become pen pals from here on out. I just got your swap and girl, I thought I had good handwriting, but yours blows mine out of the water completely!! Lol. I absolutely LOVED your letter and the super pretty " getting to know me" letter. You and I are SO MUCH ALIKE in SO MANY aspects. We've GOT to become pen pals and I'll write the first letter, or well an answer to your letter. I just LOVE the swap you sent. I LOVE the amazing craft you created and sent, and Love the stickers, love the cut outs, and the washi. I love it all and you are awesome!!! Thank you for resending and it's PERFECT!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the darling PC! My hubby and I have and ornament for 42 of the 43 years we have known each other. We just had our 40th anniversary the day before New Years Eve. We talked this year about getting a small tree next year just for those ornaments. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Thank you very much for the Christmas card and a quote from the Christmas carol. We really need hope during the difficult time of the year. And, no, I won't sick of you! LOL
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
Comment: You’re postcard brought a smile. Everything’s great - especially your hack.
The squirrels very cute, & I like the way you wrote the swap’s title. I save PCs like this for future reference. Your tip is quite timely. My DR has become filled with stuff and it needs attention!! I will take a “before” photo...tomorrow.
And, your handwriting still amazes me.
Thank you for it all!
Comment: Such a cute little package of die cuts. I love the round one. You packaged it up so cute with the little sequins (which reminded me that I have those too and now I have to go find them!), and all the pretty snowflakes.
Comment: Thank you for the nice note and tuck-ins. Love the dragonfly and butterfly stamps and stickers. I'm always looking for small stickers and these are so cute! :) Your weekend wasn't boring at all. Sounds like a wonderful relaxing weekend. :) I know what you mean about cleaning, my teen grandkids are coming to spend the weekend with us and I have to do cleaning that I've not done in a very long time! But it will be worth it to have them here! :) Take care and thanks again!
Comment: Thank you SO very much for the swap! I love everything and was super excited to get the ribbon!! Everything will get used! Btw, you have the nicest handwriting ever and I LOVE the pen you used to write in my card!!! I would give you an extra heart just for how pretty the pen ink is and how beautiful my name is written on the card! Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed the swap! Those pens are my new favorite. It’s the Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic gel pens. A bit pricey but well worth it!
Comment: Thank you Jocelyn for all the Halloween Tags. They are all great and I love all of them. You said you are a beginner crafter. From the tags it looks like you have been crafting for many years. I would have never guessed you are a beginner crafter. Keep up the good crafting You did awesome!!
Comment: Thanks for the cool card, I love state cards like that! :) Also ADHD solidarity, woohoo!! I'm planning on making an ADHD-themed penpal swap soon, sometime in the next month or so. Keep an eye out for it if you're interested in joining!
Comment: Thank you for your card. I LOVE your hand writing! Beautiful. Did you take a course in that writing style? Your word of encouragement is very nice and easy to recall! I may use it as I share with others:) Great bookmarker - love the Word! Have a wonderful week:)
Comment: Hi! Thank you for the lovely card. I’m glad you told me my Instagram link was broken.. lol. It’s fixed now! Hopefully one day I can teach a brush lettering class in an area near you. If you have any lettering questions feel free to message me. Have a great day!!
Comment: Awww. Thank you so much for the extra items and the way in which you presented your answers. I appreciate that you took the time to write me a letter. I’m just now getting into letter writing but my penmanship is not as lovely as yours. ♥️
