Comment: This was so very special! You sent two big boxes of goodies to me of everything I could even imagine with regards to Mexican foods! Now if only an Abuela came with the parcel :)
Thanks again - my pantry is not only full but OVER full lol :)
Comment: Thank you for your great answers and videos/pictures to go along with them!! Have you read the Scott Pilgrim comic books? I decided to read them after seeing the movie, they're definitely worth it!
Response: Thanks for the rating! I haven't read the graphic novels yet, but it IS on my to-do list. I've heard that they're quite good. <3
Comment: What nice penmanship you have! I loved reading all the pieces of paper, esp. the excerpts of your YA story. You're a great writer! And I also loved the doodles! Thanks so much for sharing! (^_^)
Response: oh yay! i'm so glad you liked it, i had a good time putting it together for you. and SO glad you found my writing interesting. I'm always nervous when i show it to someone new.
Comment: Thanks. Living in Australia the US civil rights movement/the people of the civil rights isn't something we learn about, but somewhere along the lines I had heard of Rosa Parks, when I checked wiki, I recalled the bus story :) Good on her!
Comment: Great list - thanks for sending! I like Paul Rudd too - what a nice photo of Ryan Gosling! I love the animal pictures - especially the cougar! What a lovely photo (and what a typical cat pose, too!). Love your little dog! Your list was a nice read, but adding the photos made it really special! Thanks!
Response: Aren't they the cutest?! Thanks for the rate and the heart. <3
Comment: A beautiful PC of the Louvre. I have been there and it is a very special place. Your poem Alone by Edgar Allan Poe was very touching and spoke to me on a deep level. Loved the line "From the sun that round me rolled in its Autumn tint of gold.." You are clearly a thoughtful person who enjoys poetry as much a s I do. Thank you, Le Papillon Vert
Response: I noticed you enjoy French and thought it would be a card you'd appreciate. I adore Edgar Allan Poe and that poem always moves me. I think everyone has felt that way at some point. It was neat to see that you don't live too far away from me. (I'm in Detroit) I have friends in your city. Thanks for the rating. Perhaps we'll swap again <3
Comment: Yay! I have been wanting more K-pop recommendations -- kinda stuck on Shinee and PSY ... Thank you so much! Pandora and Youtube, here I come!
Also, love the postcard, you did an incredible job with the shading and the proportions! Sigh ...
Response: OH YAY! So very happy to hear that you liked the card and selections. I was proud of it. The stars aligned when we were partnered. I just so happen to be really into K-Pop. I have one sister living in Japan & another moving to Korea so I have the inside scoop. Hopefully we can share/swap again. <3 ENJOY!
Comment: Love my swap parcel and all the extra time and effort you put into making it just right. The wrapping with the tissue paper was so nicely done and the selection of goodies oh my! Love all my craftie stuff - you know me so well! Your ATCs and journal were fantastically done as well! Totally keepsakes. Can't wait to reply to your letter :). Thank you for making this such a special swap. <3333 VIVA SNG
Comment: This was a fantastic parcel! You are right - the visit made it extra special :) All the sightseeing! Woo! Also all the craft goodies - my gosh, you spent a fortune. You spoiled me terribly so.. and the peacock necklace - I can't stop wearing it! So adorable. Thanks again for being such an amazing SNG <3
Comment: <3<3<3 What a spectacular envelope!!!! From the creative lettering on my name and address to the beautifully painted background, the collection of cool postage stamps, collage and rubber stamping; I felt so special knowing that this work of art in my mailbox was for me!!! (Don't worry: I was able to peel all but a tiny bit of the customs form off!) ....And as for the contents of the envelope? Wow!!! :0) It felt a stocking on Christmas morning where each time I took something out, there was another lovely surprise right under it! ...a very sweet note, craft supplies, charms, ribbon, note cards, and even ATCs! Your art envie swap = totally awesome! Thank you so much! xo
Response: <3 YAY! that's what i was going for. i'm glad you liked it :)
Comment: OMG!!!! I LOVE IT!!! how did you make the booklet? i have to learn! lol. i dont want to do the pages you have left for me as i do not want to ruin the awesomeness of it :-P but...i shall try. thankyou SO much!!!!
Response: First I sewed the pages together. One thread through all of the pages in several spots. then glued them to a strip of chiboard then glued that to the part in the middle of the book. Most of it was by accident. I fumbled my way through that thing. I'm so glad you like it :) I put a ton of work into it. And I'm happy it came out kind of decent <3
Comment: Really enjoyed reading your answers and liked the extra ones you added. Although I can't agree with you that 'Rant' is one of the worst books, it's one of my faves, lol! (But I had to read it a couple of times before I got it) :)
Response: I read it 3 times. Twice within 72 hours. I tried to like it, I just didn't. Lol. Idk, me and Chuck, we have a love hate relationship. Thank you for the rating :)
Comment: I can't thank you enough for such a lovely swap. I can't pry myself away from all the lovely pens and inkpads and stamps! My room is a mess and I don't know where I'm going to put it, but I'm happier than a pig in you know what :). You know how to spoil me and pick out the best things around! This is the best crafty swap ever! You are a true SNG! <3333333333333333333333333 Thank you! You are awesome!
Response: i thought i answered this. You're very welcome. I kept seeing stuff and thinking about you. i'm very happy you liked it. <3 SNG 4 LIFE
Comment: Sorry for the late rate. I could have sworn I rated you when the day I received, but just noticed there was no rating when I went to check my 2nd partner. Anyway, thank you for a very interesting log. I enjoyed reading it!
Comment: Just looking over your card that came in today, and I notice that there is not postmark. Where do you live? I love the Mad Hatter card. or.Alice In Wonderland..My favorite animal has to be the Panda, I collect any Panda postcards that I get. Happy Day, anita
Response: I have NO idea why that took so long to reach you. I live in Michigan...this time I mailed from my job instead of home, maybe that made a difference.
Comment: Thanks for the fun, detailed answers! :) I had to laugh because you are kinda like my husband in the things you don't like. He won't eat mayo or cottage cheese either! Oh - and I like brussels sprouts too, as long as they're cooked well!
Response: Thank you for the rating! I'm not a picky eater but some textures just don't sit well with me. ^_^
Comment: Weeee! I've been oogling the goodies since Friday and even put some to good use already! I have to say it is one of the nicest swaps of all times :). I can't wait to swap with you more in the future - you've certainly figured out my likes and loves quick :). You're a doll! Thank you so much!!! You've made my weekend! You're the best SNG ever!!! :P
Response: I'm happy you like it. Only the best for a fellow SNG. Can't wait until the next one <3
Comment: Jasmine, you're amazing!!!!! Thank you so so so much! The envie is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for taking the time to make it so special! I'm going to try and reuse it and pass on your art:) I love the insides too! You went above and beyond! Dave and I haven't had rock candy in so long! He even posted it up on his tumblr (bravestdays.tumblr) and I'm going to post a photo of the envie on mine soon! Matzi LOVED her mice and I have photos of her with them that will be up too. You rule thank you from me and everyone here:D:D! ♥
Response: i'm SO happy you like it! I wanted to make sure you got an extra special package since you don't get to swap too much anymore. I got your letter and loved it. I'll write you back this weekend! I'm glad Matzi loves her mice. I had to hide them from my cat, Sweeney Todd. He was sniffing at the bag trying to get to them. I'm going to try to keep Dave in mind for our next swaps too. <3 <3 !!
Comment: Thanks. I think that's the first time I've (knowingly) listened to Korean pop...I like it...I hear Chinese pop quite a bit b/c I have a huge crush on Takeshi Kaneshiro and I've been netflix-ing all of his Chinese films. ;o) I think MBLAQ was my favorite!!
Response: ins't that beat for Y just perfect for working out. It gets me so pumped. the actual song is really depressing but idk Korean so I just let it get me moving. LOL
Comment: Thanks Jasmine :) I loved the close up pic of the teabag, it looks so yummy (i'm a tea addict!) and I found your email really interesting. I hope you manage to get your car fixed! Thanks again :)
Comment: Thank you for letter! I envy you (just a bit :] ) it's great to get such amount oh goodies from smb :) and I'm glad that you wasn't hurted in car accident ! Drive carefully!
Best wishes, Kseniya
Comment: I really enjoyed your answers! Very interesting and well written too! Made me laugh and I could relate to a lot of your opinions! Very brave of you to finally kiss that boy on the last day of school! You rock! Lol!
Response: aww thank you. Even though he and I will never be friends again I always get excited when I remember that first kiss ^_^ (swoon!)
Comment: Aw, thanks! I think he's pretty cute myself! ;)
Thanks for the compliments on my profile - I sure tried hard to get it to the point that it's clear and gives people a good picture of who I am. Nice to know I've accomplished that! Happy swapping!
Comment: Loved my movie list - I have so many new movies to check out and keep me busy :). I loved the customization you used to pick movies you thought I would personally enjoy instead of sending out a generic email. Way to go - this was super super special :) SNG 4EVA!!!
