Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for the awesome package! I love all the beads and charms! I like to make beaded jewelry and charm bracelets and they are perfect for that! Hope you have a great Halloween and thank you for the nice card and note! Deanna ❤
Comment: Thanks so much for hosting this great swap! The crafting camp sounds wonderful! I have had several virtual crafting sessions with friends, but we have all done our own thing. Hope you have a wonderful Halloween month!
Comment: Zelda, WOW!! Thank you SO SO much for the DVD you sent me! I don't have this movie and I am so excited about it! I actually collect DVD's so this was the best surprise ever! I seriously can't thank you enough for this, it means so much to me. I am so grateful and appreciative of you!
Thank you so much again, from the bottom of my heart!
Comment: Thank you for the cute Halloween card, the creepy/yet pretty stickers, and your letter. I loved reading what you wrote: the thing with the "patches" that you earn sounds awesome, what a cool idea! I wasn't a scout either, but would love earning patches now LOL I did a bit of Halloween shopping myself, pretty early as well, cause like you said- its all gone come time to actually use it. I did get like 12 6 X 6 sheets of Halloween cling stamps for $15.32 online at InLoveArts, I think it's in China, but it didn't take too long to arrive, plus lots of sale items at JoAnns. Most of my "celebration" for this time of year is doing holiday themed art, paper crafts, swaps and using holiday stationery on all my letters and stuff. Hope you have a great holiday! ♥♥♥
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter! I want all the patches too. Have you seen Majing It? It's a crafting competition show, and they win patches.
I know what you mean about having to buy up the Halloween goodies early. I bought all the sticker packs from Joann's and Michael's. I an going to have to check out the Halloween advent sticker calendar though.
Comment: I loved reading about your Halloween activities especially the virtual crafting camp- sounds like so much fun!!! I'm definitely envious of your spooky stash and loved the card and sticker sheet you sent. Thanks so much and hope we swap again!
Comment: Thanks so much for sending the pen. I just have to get my flow back of how to use it. It’s been a while since I’ve played around with a fountain pen. I will more than likely keep it at work. Take care!
Response: So glad it went to someone who will enjoy it 8)
Comment: WOW! What a fabulous ATC, I love it! I especially love what you did with the tag.
I'm dying to know what you used for the inking on the edge, it's a look I often go for but can't quite achieve the results.
Response: Oh, I'm so happy you like the ATC. I really liked the look of it. I use the Distress Ink from Tim Holtz. I have a bunch of the mini ones. I also have the Mini Ink Blending Tool with the round foam pads. They are a great way to add the ink to the edges of things. I used that ink for all of the tag. Hope that helps. Feel free to message me if you have any other questions 8)
Comment: I love the presentation!! The kitty bookmarks are adorable! You sent me much needed fine tip pens!! Oh my gosh, thank you. Thanks for the new ATC's. And ooo the tea! Def tonight! This was a wonderful swap and I am so grateful!
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed it all. It was fun picking it out for you. Thanks for joining in the fun 8)
Comment: LaughingVixen—gosh I felt it was my birthday even though my birthday was last month!! I haven’t felt happy opening gifts for a while lol! I want to say I appreciate all of the things you sent me, I actually love all of them from the snail wax seal stamp to the awesome cling stamps, finally have some snail mail stamps in my stamp collection so thank you! Thank you for the dog treats, I opened your gift at work lol so I will let you know what my dog thinks of it. I am actually in an upcoming journal swap, I think I’m going to use your junk journal for that swap!! Can you tell me where you got those teas? I like collecting weird/cool/cute looking tea packages to use for magpie journals and I thought the tea package was neat so wanted to know where you got them! Again, thank you for hosting this swap, I had a lot of fun sending my partner gifts and loved the goodies you sent me, thank you!
Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed everything!!! It was fun picking it all out for you and I really enjoyed trying my hand at making the Junk Journal. I glad you'll be able to put it to good use. Aren't those teas fabulous??!!! I received 2 in a swap and had to go find them. The site is www.theteabook.com and they have lots of different styles. They also sent me a code when there was a faux pas with my order last time that I will happily pass on to you ~ BOOK38 for 15% off until 9/20/21. Enjoy 8)
Comment: Oh my word, dragonfly washi!!! Thank you so much for all the 'In The Garden goodies. The tags you made are so beautiful - I'm adding them to my dragonfly art journal.

Comment: Thank you for the 2 pretty squares & the tea. I decided stay with the group & swap-bot. I have been here since 2008 & not about to lose all I gained. I figured another way with things & I now hand wash crochet items & put them in the dryer & from dryer to package. Smiling here.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the squares. I hope the new way works for you 8)
Comment: As an emotional pregnant woman, opening your package got to me haha. It was so personalized, it brightened up my spirits so much. Feeling sore, gross, and down-the warm touch of someone paying attention & making me feel special hit hard (in a good way). I truly appreciate your swap. I also went to my partners to be read list, it makes the swap so much more warm and fuzzy feelings to send. Thank you again!!
Response: (sniff, sniff) Well now you made me emotional. Ha! As someone who has been stuck in the house for the last year, it's nice to interact with other people if only briefly. It's great to read a reply and know someone is so happy to receive the package I sent them. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope the book turns out to be a good one (it sounded good). And I'm so happy that it brought you so much joy!!! 8)

Comment: The box you sent was so fun to open! It was like a rainbow leapt out :P oh man and those candies O.O my dog does this silly thing when she tastes something sour/salty/sweet she does this teeth chatter (I'll have to send you a vid, it's so cute) and I totally thought I was about to do that hahaha
Response: Those candies were painful!!! Ha! I mean, I tired every flavor but I got more leary with each one. Ha!

Comment: Aaah the lil mouse is so cute in his Christmas sweater!! He's my fave too :P I used to have a pet mouse named Maude, she was the sweetest and liked her cheeks scratched :) I put them both on our tree right away. We just set it up and didn't have many ornaments. These are great additions!

Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed them! Yes, that yarn is so fun 8)
Comment: Wow Zelda what an awesome swap. I did see Killer Klowns from Outer Space. It was a bit too cheesy for me but my love it. Didn't see Dark Ride so I will be watching it. So many snacks! I never had any for the candies you sent except for for the Whatchamacallit which I haven't had in years. I got so excited when I saw it. lol I'm gonna share the other candies with my daughter we can't wait to try them. I also look forward to trying the Zapps chips. You definitely went above and beyond. Thanks again for such an amazing swap.
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I remember Whatchamacallit being the first new candy bar when I was growing up. They advertised it like crazy! I had one last year for the first time in a long time. Still pretty tasty 8)
Comment: Hi Zelda, I'm not much into creepy or thrillers but the last book you wrote about (The Aftermath) did sound really interesting to me! I am going to look and see if I can get it with my Kindle Unlimited subscription - hopefully I can 'cuz it sounds good! Thanks so much for sharing. 😀
