Comment: Hi Suzi and thank you so much for the wonderful BIG coin! I love anything vintage and this has a great vintage feel to it with the elements and colors that you used. And thank you for the blank discs - I may try making some more of these! I hope you begin to feel better soon. And no worries about being late. Maybe more time creating will help you!!
Response: ♥ Thanks for the heart. I am glad you like your coin.
Comment: Wow, what a lovely surprise in the mail today! Thank you for the two ATCoins and all the extra papers and napkin. Love the napkin backgrounds on the coins and the black floral silhouettes. Thank you again!
Response: ♥ So glad you liked them. Enjoy creating with the rest. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Suzi! I got the embellishment clusters... thank you! They are beautiful! Each one is unique, and not like the others.. Thank you so much for creating these for me :-). Happy Valentine's day.. a little early. <3
Response: ♥ Glad you liked them. I did struggle to get started. Had crafter's block or something. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: the coins are awesome!!!...the silver snowflake is so cool....you did such a great job on each coin....thank you so much for making them for me...and thank you for the extra goodies....Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year...stay warm!
Response: ♥ Please Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Your PL arrived a couple of days ago, but I was out of town for the weekend.
How amazing all the cards are. I keep looking at them on and on again. What a great idea to fill the bubbles of package material! I didn't know it is possible to punch dried leaves (new inspiration!). And I have to use my sewingmachine more often!
Did I say I am very happy while looking at it?
Response: ♥ It is always an adventure to leave paper behind. I am very glad you are enjoying it. Thanks for the heart. P.S. I punched them and then dried them.
Comment: I love your journal, SuZi!! Love the interesting paper you used as background! Lots of great ephemera! My favorite is the Caufields Novelty card! Thank you so much! (Have to go out and buy some chocolate now!)
Response: ♥ Sorry if I am causing you to blow a diet. I just cannot resist chocolate. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi SuZi! Thank you for the lovely Christmas card pc and wishes! Hard to believe it is right around the corner - yikes! Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas Season of love and joy! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: ♥ Thank you for the lovely sentiment and heart.
Comment: Sorry I just got around to rating this now-funny what you find when you clean your craft room. Anyway-these Fall coins are beautiful-fall is my fav time of year and love how you used the leaves to detail the coins. Thanks for all you shared with me!
Response: ♥ I am just glad you found it.Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Bahahahaha...these are so stinkin' adorable, Suzi! Not only are the ATCoins darling, but the sticky trim you put on the edges of the envelope things is...well, I'm peeling it off to use in some upcoming swaps! Thank you for being such a lovely host and swap partner!
Response: ♥ Always good to hear my partner liked what I sent. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: SuZi, thank you for the wonderful assortment of napkins! I already have several ideas for some of them. I think my favorite is the one with the birds and birdcages. And the Halloween one with the skeleton. That's funny that there's a witch on a broomstick on the Easter one; I wonder what that means in their culture? Thanks also for the extra goodies you sent. I don't have much in the way of Halloween supplies, so this will come in handy! Thanks again and happy swapping!
Response: ♥ They also have a special tradition focuses on reading crime stories and detective novels during the Easter season, so who knows. Glad you liked it and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Beautiful journal, as always! I especially love that it's handmade - you do great work! My handmade journals always look like a 5-year old "handmade" them LOL Thanks again for a lovely journal! Have a happy autumn! :)
Response: ♥ I am a bookmaker at heart and find making my own as rewarding as filling the pages. Glad you like it and thank you for the heart.
Comment: OMG, did I win the lottery??!!! Your ATC is gorgeous and so well done and I am so incredibly happy that you sent me all the wonderful butterfly die cuts!!! You are so very generous, thank you so much!
Response: ♥ We made them to share. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Oh wow your neat journal arrived today thank you! Love it so much! All the different and special papers... a wonderful haptical experience. And it remembers me that I wanted to try out marbling some day. <3
Response: ♥ Very happy to hear it made it and hope it provides lots of inspiration. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow! This flip book is really wonderful. I love everything about it. All the little notes between the flips, the amazing goodies and wonderful tea. It surely made my day, thank you so much! One heart on swap-bot and two extra hearts for you <3
Response: ♥ I am very glad you liked it. Thanks for the hearts. (I use that sort of flip in my journal to commemorate a special day or event.)
Comment: Hi Suzi. I got the fabulous Christmas Magpie page today. I think, for someone "not feeling" the spirit of the holiday, you did a fantastic job! I felt Christmas-y for many years. But I love to give to friends. And often pick up something during the year for them that I know will make a great Christmas gift. Bought some beautiful Pashmina scarves in San Francisco for all my Bunco ladies and also all my Red Hat ladies... trust me, they were a fantastic price.. and I don't have to worry about those gifts now (except how to wrap?) :-O Thank you so much for the wonderful Santa Clause page! It will look awesome in my book :-). I am loving this swap!!
Response: ♥ I did finally muster up a bit of spirit. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I’m sorry! Thanks for the prompt... and your haiku postcards are lovely!! So thoughtful. I really LOVE that wave shaped washi, btw!! Sweet! I really liked this swap... simple enough that I didn’t stress about it but lots of fun and creative opportunities. Plus, who doesn’t love haiku???
Response: ♥ Yes, simple and easy as you want to make it. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for this most wonderful Magpie journal!!! I loved every part of it! The cover with the framed magpie bird, the colors you used, the bits of humor scattered throughout it -- it was an absolute delight!!! I can tell that you put a lot of time and heart into making it and it is one that I will enjoy over and over again! Each page is a work of art, and you have such great ideas, I would love to be able to sit down with you for an afternoon and just create grand projects together! Thank you for a most enjoyable and special swap!!!
Response: ♥ I am thrilled you enjoyed it that much. Will be sending a PM. Thank you for the heart.
What brand are the card stock samples from? DCWV...MAMBI...???? I really liked them. I don’t know why I have this thing for heavy cardstock but I do! The heavier the better... lol🤗
Response: ♥ The card stock is called "Secret Garden Multi" from the Daisy D's paper company. I got mine from an online site called Scrapbook.com at least 10 years ago.
Glad you liked them and thanks for the heart.
Comment: SuZi, thank you for hosting this fabulous swap and for the absolutely stunning flipbook! I loved the theme and tuckins. And I will definitely check out that author, thanks for the recommendation!
Response: ♥ Glad you liked it. I thought the tea appropriate. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Suzi -- thanks for the packet, in TWO lovely envelopes. (I'm sorry the PO messed up your mail; I've had that happen and it's so irritating.) I love all the little pretty bits and pieces. All the best, al
Response: â™¥ So s glad it made it to you the second time out. At least they returned it to me and didn't drop it in some ditch. Thanks for the nice rating and heart.
Comment: SuZi! What a lovely book...so beautiful and so carefully put together. I shall enjoy it...maybe stick in some of my favorite butterfly poems and haiku. Thank you so much! The butterfly garland will probably drape my workroom lamp. :)
Response: â™¥ I think those are lovely ideas. I am always happy to share my butterfly stash. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Wow, thank you so much!!! I loved it!!! What a beautiful and wonderfull book. I was amazed to find some Dutch text in it. I was really surprised to find such a beautiful book. A heart is not enough â¤â¤â¤â¤
Response: â™¥ I am very happy you liked it. I hope you have fun filling in the empty pages. Thanks for the extra nice rating.
Comment: Iâ€™m sorry to be so long with this but Iâ€™ve been sick and now finally getting better. I love the flip book you made for me! Hope you donâ€™t mind if I (sort of) copy it, it is really awesome. I love the cute gnome card, too.
Response: â™¥ Copy as much or as little as you wish. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Have a safe and Happy Holiday.
Comment: Thanks so much for sending this pocket letter.
I just received a bag of mail from my Mom and your swap was in it. I'm so sorry for the delay but with my stepfather's passing we haven't made it to the PO box for the past few weeks.
Response: â™¥ It is good to see it got there. Sorry to hear about your lose. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you â¤Â¸â™¥â™ªâ™«*Â¨*â€¢.Â¸Â¸â¤ for the HAPPY DECEMBER pictures on my profile ;-) ðŸ’— ðŸŽ… ðŸŽ ðŸŽ„ðŸ“· â† â˜ƒ â˜•ï¸ðŸ ðŸŽŽ...I HOPE you have A GREAT DECEMBER & ENJOY a great ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œ rating! Blessings, cc
Comment: Suzi, you went above and beyond in the Magpie Journal. I absolutely love it! So many visual and tactile items... a lot going on, yet not busy at all! I have decided NOT to write over your answers on the "Five things You Love" page... I will write mine on a separate piece of paper and adhere with washi. I will definitely use the blank pages too... can't let such a beautiful journal sit idle until it is full! Thank you so much! If I could give you 100 extra hearts, I would :-)
Response: â™¥ I am very pleased it got to you so quickly. My biggest dread is that a swap with so much involvement might get lost. It was so much fun finding things to share with you, I decided to join another Magpie journal swap (this time international). Maybe one day I will get one from you. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Well, what can I say, except WOW...I simply adore this gorgeous flip book! It is obvious that you put so much time and thought into each page, and I appreciate that more than you know. It's amazing, in all the best ways! Feel free to use my "super swappers" list on your own profile...I saw it on another swapper's profile page and thought it was a wonderful idea!
Response: â™¥ So glad you liked it. I hope you find some special event or memory to fill it with. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Very cool! Thank you so much for the great envies. The little album you was something I had not seen before. I love it!!! You've inspired me and gave some good ideas. Also, thank you for the wonderful b/w photos. So fun!
Response: â™¥ I am glad it made it to you. I was getting worried. Happy to inspire. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: You deserve so many hearts! I love your booklet, with all the wonderful inserts. I love the mesh bag, and to think it fell right in front of you while you were at Hobby Lobby! Thank you so much, what a treat to receive in the mail. The envelope was beautiful too. Thanks for all the effort and time you put into this swap! What a blessing!
Response: â™¥ Thank you for your kind words. It is a treat when something I created makes someone happy. I hope you find an awesome use for it.
Comment: Great swap idea and thanks for the cool eclipse tip too! We are near the totality area and are really looking forward to Monday, but I had not read the part about the ground before - great idea!
Response: â™¥ Always happy to share tidbits I find helpful. Thanks for the heart. Your stamp will be along presently.
Comment: SuZi, you could not have picked a better postcard from all of the ones your mother had. I drove by this statue(Sojourner Truth) everyday for over 30 years. It is in Florence, MA where I used to live. Boy, what a coincidence. Shirley
Response: â™¥ Karma has its ways. I am so glad you like the card. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Suzi, thank you so much for the beautiful notepads! Yours came out so nice and I'm thrilled they are pink! And sewing them . . . why didn't I think of that? haha . . . love the sticky notes, too--especially the kitty one!!!!
Response: â™¥ I figured I couldn't go wrong if a cat was involved. Glad you liked it all. Thank you for my heart.
Comment: Thank you, it's beautiful! You really did an awesome job on it. Did the machine also emboss it? Who is the die cut made by? I just love it! I just got a die cut machine and I'm having fun using it. Thank you for all the awesome extras also!
Response: â™¥ I used "Docrafts Xcut Cut & Emboss Folder A6 Elegant Lady" that cuts and embosses at the same time. I was very pleased with the results. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: I had a quick view & see there are many pins I really love!!! This weekend I'll take some time to take a better look at them. But there sure are a lot of nice, inspirational pins! Thanks for sharing them with me!! And see you at Pinterest or in a SB-swap! <3 - Ellen
Response: â™¥ Always happy to share inspirations. Glad you found some. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow, your Pinterest boards are so pretty and organized. Impressive. I love the board you created. I have found some items that will help me in some of the swaps I am already signed up for. Thanks
Response: â™¥ That is the enthusiasm I look for. Thanks and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for creating such a beautiful pocket letter for me. Gorgeous papers and washi and I love how you popped out the quotes. I will make good use of all the lovely goodies you tucked in. Even the envelope was pretty. I love all of it. â™¥â™¥â™¥

Response: â™¥ Glad you liked it in spite of the blue lines. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great Gnome MPL. I love gnomes too they are the cutest. You do know that they are coming out with Gnomeo & Juliet 2 this summer? A gnome squeal!!! I cannot wait, I just love that movie. Love the gnomes on the MPL and how you recycled them, they will be grateful of reusing. lol Hope hubby is getting better.
Response: â™¥ Thank you for remembering hubby. Yes much better for now. Glad you liked the swap. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: SuZi, thanks for such a nice envie full of lovely envelopes and pretty butterfly surprises. And what a cute card. Thanks for joining my swap. Wasn't sure if anyone would since I did it not so long ago.
Response: â™¥ Butterflies are one of my most favorite things to work with. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the creative ATC. Love the shaker insert with the metal key. I'm sorry you had to do the card twice to make sure it gets through customs. Cork would have been okay, I guess. And thanks also for the pretty washi tape. I have to say, I also loved the greeting card. Take care.
Response: â™¥ Better safe than sorry. Hope you have a good time using what extras I sent. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Love the postcard you chose to color. I look forward to the next round so I can color my 1/4 and send it on. You won't believe this, but the pc you sent for me to color is the same one I sent my partner. I almost chose it for this swap. Isn't that funny! Thanks for the extra one that you colored completely. Have a great Louisville day!
Response: â™¥ Thanks for the heart. It is interesting how many of us have that same packet of postcards.
Comment: Holy you know what!!! I love it, especially that little flip with the robots inside. All those textured papers will get used really quickly. I would give you so many more hearts if I could. Thank you for everything!â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤
Response: â™¥ Love to hear the enthusiasm in you comment. Enjoy! Thanks for the hearts.
Comment: What a lovely envelope FULL of spring washi, cute spring die cuts, & interesting sounding tea (I'll try this tomorrow afternoon at work.). The cupcake card was very cool too! It was a happy mail day for sure! :)
Response: â™¥ It sounds as if it made you smile. Always a plus in swapping. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: THANK YOU so much for joining the APDG ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œ Lottsa Hearts! ;-) SWAP! I hope you enjoy all the lovely ðŸ’œs on your profile as much as I do! Please ENJOY a lovely 5 ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œ RATING TOO! Blessings, cc
Response: â™¥ Always fun doing these swaps. Thanks for hosting. Thanks for the heart too.
Comment: Hi SuZi! Loved the Let it Snow 9 pocket letter! The design is just lovely and yes, I can see why you would not want to let that vellum go! I have a tough time with some papers as well! LOL! TY for the fun swap, the PL and all the goodies! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Hi Suzi, thank you for resending this swap. Im glad it arrived safe & sound this time round :) I was pleasantly surprise about the scarf which i certainly was not expecting. Thank you so much for your generosity!
Response: â™¥ You were so kind to wait for a resend. I felt you deserved a little surprise. I do not know if your weather ever gets cold enough to use it but perhaps it can become a fashion statement.
Comment: I love your creative suggestions! When we used to put up a tree we used an artificial one because I'm allergic to the real ones. But I do understand where you are coming from about saving the trees. Merry Christmas!
Comment: â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’› 5 hearts for the BEAUTIFUL Butterflies on our profiles!!! Thank you for joining the BL~ Butterfly profile deco áƒš Oct. swap! ðŸŒ¸Æ¸ÌµÌ¡ÓœÌµÌ¨Ì„Æ·ðŸŒ¸
Hope you enjoyed it too! Blessings, cc
Response: â™¥ Always enjoy these swaps. I learn so much. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Sorry for rating late. I must have missed your deco. When I noticed that the swap deadline was over I took another look and it was there. Awesome swap by the way! I loved all those pretty butterflies. My boyfriend once lived on a farm. It was a lot of work but he enjoyed it. When he was a kid he lived on a farm with his grandmother.
Response: â™¥ Somehow I think Butterfly farming would be easier than crop farming. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: Thank you for the great images! I remember the first Hobbit film that was animated. I was not impressed, so was delighted when the movies came out. Like you, I've wanted a home in the hillside! Magical . . . I also think it's great you still have your first Hobbit book.
Response: â™¥ It is a bit tattered and some of the pages are loose but it has personality that way. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: áƒš ;-) ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œ Thank you for the great info & Lovely pictures! Enjoy ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œ rating! I am enjoying learning so much about these beautiful creatures too... & I have noticed I spend more time admiring them when i see them now ;-) Looking at the markings and finding out what they are named too... ;-) áƒšBUTTERFLY Blessings, cc
Comment: Wow, SuZi, that was fast. Daughter wrote and said it arrived today. While I'd love to see it, I shall wait until I arrive next month. She's saving it for me. Thanks so much. I know I"ll love it. SuZi, got to see your swap today. Thanks so much for the pretty envies and the great butterflies. And terrific stamp about the caterpillar and the butterfly. Blessings. Coleen
Response: â™¥ I hope you will be as please when you see them in person. Safe journey to you and yours.(10/12/16 Happy to see you survived you move. Glad the envelopes didn't disappoint.)
Comment: I absolutely love what you created for me!! This 9LP is so original, and appeals especially to my love of adventure and travel. And what a marvelous selection of stamps. You couldn't have pleased me more! Thank you.
Response: â™¥ Very happy to hear you liked it. I inherited those stamps. My Mom was an avid collector of ALL stamps. She would approve. Thanks for my heart.
Comment: SuZi--what a clever paper bag mini album! Thanks so much . . . I will definitely use it for photos and journaled memories of our puppy's first year. Sadie has had quite a year---sold at only 6 weeks (illegal in Texas)--sellers emphasized that she was the tiniest of the litter and may never be a full size miniature Schnauzer to explain away her small size for 10 weeks. Our vet knew instantly that they were most likely working for a puppy mill to sell as fast as possible. But she is a happy, healthy, terrier-rambunctious little thing that LOVES to run hard to fetch balls at the dog park.She adjusted to us quickly, has moved to an apartment with us in between houses, and will now be moving yet again to the new house ready in mid-September. She is a happy camper also with our dog-walker/dog sitter who will keep her overnight when we are actually moving. We'll be glad to get into the house which is coming together quite nicely. She will have a delightful puppy album to record her very hectic first year. Wish I could give you 10 hearts!!! Thank you very much!
Response: â™¥ So glad you liked it and I hope Sadie continues to keep you hopping. There is nothing like a rambunctious puppy to keep us young. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: THANK You SO much for the great BLG ~ Butterfly profile deco áƒš August Butterflies!!! THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL on all our profiles!!! ;-) They make me happy too! I hope this makes you happy! A â¥ â™¡ ðŸ’— ðŸ’˜ ðŸ’› rating! Blessings, cc

Comment: Hi Suzi! First let me say I absolutely LOVE the sun and cloud envelope you creted for this swap--so inventive. LOVE your little die-cut houses (thanks for sharing ;+) and your backgrounds are so well done. This was a great swap--I absolutely adore the 3 pocket swaps and hope you'll do more!
Response: â™¥ Glad you were so pleased with everything. I am pondering other threesomes all the time. Thanks for the heart

Comment: You are so awesome! I love the F - J twinchies you sent me and the wonderful marble paper you made. I have the panda card you sent with the Chocolate Tag we were in last month. I am making a wood frame for both (side by side) Thank you :)
Response: â™¥ You flatter me. I am very happy you like my work so much. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the recipes! I have a friend that loves quinoa, so I bet he will enjoy that dish. The corn casserole recipe is one of my favorite things to make. I made it for a Friendsgiving this year and it was a big hit! I've never made it with yogurt, always with sour cream. Have you made it with yogurt?
Response: â™¥ Thank you for the lovely rating and heart. No I haven't but I have eaten it plenty of times when my Aunt (who is more health conscious) makes it. I really cannot tell a lot of difference. All yummy.

I look forward to using the extra goodies for future ATCs I make. And I LOVED the apron card! You are so creative! I hope I swap PLs with you again in the future! Merry Christmas!
Response: â™¥ Glad you like it and the extras. Thanks for the heart. Have a safe and healthy New Year.

Response: â™¥ Glad you liked everything. Thanks for the heart and have a Very Merry Christmas!

Response: â™¥ Thanks for the heart and I am happy to hear about the podcasts.
Comment: UPDATE: 12/27- SuZi!!!! Oh my goodness! You sent me one of the best PLs I've ever gotten! A million hearts doesn't cover it! All the dragon stuff and the candy! Everything is perfect and I can't wait to start using it in my crafting! Thank you sooooo much! I hope you had a great Christmas! ----- Thank you for the great Pocket Letter! Except for the top three envies, everything was loose in the gift bag, but I didn't look at anything! Lol! I will be back at Christmas to rate you for the goodies (though I'm pretty sure I will be giving you a bunch of hearts!). I love the fronts of the envies!
Response: â™«â™«â™ªâ™ªâ™« Dang! I knew I needed to put tape on ALL of them. I am sure you can get them back into the right spots. Did the letter do an escape too? It was in the middle.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty yellow ATC. I like all the textures you used, and the words describing yellow written on the border on the back. And thanks for all the goodies. The washi samples are all new to me.
Response: â™¥ Great. Hope you enjoy using the Washi. I do love using textures in my paper art. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: It is going to take all my will power to save it til Christmas it is so beautiful!! I am glad I got to keep it, LOL :):) I love the pocket letter & cannot wait to open the pockets, Thank you so much
Response: â™«â™«â™ªâ™ªâ™« I am very glad I am able to fix the mix up before the holidays are upon us. Hope you enjoy everything. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: My sincerest apologies. I was just double-checking my rates and just realized there's no rating for this swap. Interestingly, I remember rating the swap??? Thanks so much for sharing Angelou's poem. It's one of my favorite "fun" poems. Thanks, too, for the natural/handmade papers you sent. Nice washi tape on the envelope too!
Response: â™¥ I hope you enjoyed the tea as well. Thank you for the heart. Whenever I rate someone now, I go to their profile and see if it "took" because I have had a rating I gave not show up.
Comment: This is completely amazing! The best material thing all week (and I've had some good immaterial things happen this week too, so I'm quite happy). Sure you must have spent more time than a day to create these. The glass necklace is wonderful, I appear to have a thing for these. The scarf is great, I was just discussing feather boas in a group here and this scarf reminds me of one, so I guess I'll share pictures of me wearing it with them. I wore it last night and I love it! And I'm very happy to experiment with the alpaca wool and glittery mohair yarn :) You deserve a big bunch of hearts for this and for joining my swap <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: â™¥ Thank you for your praise. I am so glad you liked both. I would love to see what you create. Thank you for the heart too.
Comment: Beautiful job on the skinny, Suzi and such a cute job on the envie. Thanks for the extras. I teach here so always glad to have things for my students. I provide everything and it is a ministry so I do not charge them. Missionaries in Ukraine.
Response: â™¥ I will keep that in mind and if ever I get your name again I will see what I have that you could use. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hello SuZignomeMoM (Suzi from United States). I got your doodled envelope today! Thank you so much for the two tea bags in a cute scrapbooking folder. Love it! Definitely, the swap-bot is a much more creative place than postcrossing, it was a good choice! Have a great mail day, maria das trouxas
Response: â™¥ Wonderful it got there. This was a fun swap. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow wow wow! I really admire your beautiful pocket letter. I was looking it over when I gasped out loud with sheer delight at the sight of that wonderful little Kokopelli charm! Wearing it now, he'll go with me on my trip to vegas. (good luck charm?) I hope he plays a little trick on the casinos. Thanks for giving this to me!
Response: â™¥ I had a swap with you once before and I planned on sending him then but forgot. So happy you like him. Good luck in Vegas.
Comment: Thank you so much for the special "dog days" pocket letter. The papers used are adorable and I LOVE the dog die cuts. Oh my..so many!! Did you use stamps for some of the images? Thanks again for the fun, colorful PL. The Gin Gins and tea were a nice bonus :) Happy Swapping!
Response: â™¥ I am not sure what you thought was stamps, but no, no stamps. Glad you liked it all. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: WOW, when I saw the envie I new it was gonna be good, then I saw who it was from and then I did a little happy dance. I love your skinny that you made. From the way it sparkles with rain to all the little embellies that you used. TY very much and for the extras too!
Response: â™¥ Lol, glad to know I inspire exercise. Seriously, thanks for the complements and heart.
Comment: What an amazing assortment of fabulous punches! I will be using these for months to come...thank you so much! I adore the puzzle pieces...and those darling little envelopes! Actually, I love them all...you went above and beyond!
Response: â™¥ The envelope punch is my sister's but it has lived at my house so long it calls it home. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I LOVE MY POSTCARD!!! I had a blast making it and an even better time opening the one you sent to me. The glitter behind the pockets was great. The washi tape pocket was open at both end's and that was something I was worried about with mine so now I'm sort of freaked out. You did a great job all the way around and I love my pocket letter goodies!
Response: â™¥ So happy the Washi was not missing. I too had a great time making this project. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Talk about going above and beyond!
I have learned something new from you. Make folded cards - it decorates front *and* back. I also love the creativity and time and effort you put into this. Awesome handmade book for the letter too. Yes, I have learned new techniques, thank you. LOVE the dinosaurs too (both realistic *and* cartoon). Happy swapping. â™¥
Response: â™¥ So glad you got this. I was beginning to worry. Isn't it fun to see how others interpret the same idea? Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Suzi! Thank you for the lovely twinchies! The fleur de lis one is my absolute fav . . . I would never have known this was your first twinchie swap--they're just lovely. Thanks for creating something special for me . . . sorry for the late rating . . . I was evidently in two twinchie swaps at the same time.
Response: â™¥ I think it was more like we had 2 partners in one swap. *grins* Thanks for the sweet comment and the heart. You are a wonderful partner even when you are late. â„ŒÎ±! â„ŒÎ±!
Comment: I am in love with the beautiful PL you sent - the flowers are so sweet and lovely and you are right - that paper is definitely something to be hoarded!!! LOL Thank you so much for the beautiful, beautiful PL and the fun little goodies - I love it all!! :o)
Response: â™¥ I almost could not let it go but you deserved something special. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: The card is just gorgeous! I love the napkin background and can't wait to try it out myself. The kitty pin is awesome too, I love using jewelry on my cards too. Thanks for extras and love the napkins. ðŸ˜Š
Response: â™¥ I am always happy to see something I made please someone else. Thank you for the heart. (and as I said in the note, let me know if you need more napkins.)
Comment: Adorable! Love the pink and brown colors...love the attention to detail you use! Thank you for another fabulous addition to my binder ring, and for the sweet bronze extras...and re: rolos, you don't need a rolodex; I find that a photo box from the craft store, with chopsticks glued to the ends (for the holes) works much better!
Response: â™¥ Thank you for your advice. So glad you like the BTC. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow, A+ for your presentation! Thank you for all the great goodies. I especially like the origami tea bag holder, your letter in book form, and your sister's butterfly stencils are very clever. I look forward to using these supplies in future letters.
Response: â™¥ I am happy you liked the assortment. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely tag! I've just started the tag swaps and love the one you sent. From your profile, you sound very experienced and talented with so many crafts! I hope some day to be half as creative. I'm starting "late" in life, but keeping st it! Thank you again and for the tea and extras! Patricia
Response: â™¥ Thank you for the lovely complements. I am sure you are just as creative in your own way. Perhaps you just have not discovered it yet. Never give up. Thanks for the heart too.
Comment: Hi Suzi, I absolutely love this pocket letter, its beautiful! each one truly is an ornament that I look forward to using this Christmas. I love all the goodies also, I wish I could give you a hundred hearts instead of just one.Thank you so much!!
Response: â™¥ I am beyond pleased that it got there in a timely manner. Thank you for the complements. Thanks also for the heart.
Comment: Abe is one of my favorite men! LOVE this fabulous BTC, and look forward to many more from you! Thank you for always sending amazing artwork, and for including such sweet extras...you sure know what I like!
Response: â™¥ I should, after all this is the second BTC I sent you. I am very pleased the things I send make you happy. Thank you for my heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the first pocket letter I've ever received. It is amazing (all halloween - yay! :D) and I love everything, the packaging, the front, the goodies. It's far too good to remove anything from the front piece of art. You did the tea pocket so nicely, really unique. Thank you again for the great pocket letter, I would give you more than one heart if I could! <3<3<3 :)
Response: â™¥ You did say you liked Halloween even though you do not celebrate it. I am happy you liked it and thank you for lovely praise and the heart.
Comment: What a FANTASTIC job you did with this pocket letter! I don't know where you got such cute tea pot stamps and buttons. I loved every inch of the pocket letter. All 3 teas are new flavors for me and I look forward to trying something new. And the decorated envelope with nice stamps was great too. I'm still new to pocket letters and you've given me some great ideas to work with on my swaps. Thanks!
Response: â™¥ I am very glad you liked it. The things you mention have been in my stash for some time so I do not remember where they came from. I am sure you will like the tea as well. Thank you for my heart.
Comment: Wow,Suzi, what an amazing envie! First, your envie was just plain neat. I loved the feel of the paper and the way you decorated with colored lines. Then the letter was lovely and your side-sewn lace was inspired . . . in fact, I'm going to "borrow" that idea! Now . . . on to the tea. I'm planning to have them over the weekend and can't wait. And I'm most definitely saving and using those adorable paper tea bags on some ATC's. It was such fun for me to open . .thank you so much.
Response: â™¥ Your enthusiasm is a great reward. Thank you for the heart too.
Comment: I couldn't believe my eyes when I open the package. I have never seen a pocket letter before. And now I know why everyone is getting on the bandwagon! It is absolutely gorgeous! I haven't sent mine yet and even though I'm a bit intimidatedâ€¦ Now I know how it's basically laid out. â™¥ï¸ ðŸ’Œ â™¥ï¸
Response: â™¥ I am very happy you like it. I hope you didn't think the empty ones were the swap. I was worried they might get cut when you opened the envelope. Thanks for the heart. Good luck and have a lotta fun making your 1st PL.
Comment: I also love the movie "The Holiday" and watch it over and over. I loved the pictures you chose and totally appreciated your commentary. It's sad that it wasn't a real place. I thought it was. Thanks again!
Response: â™¥ I thought it was real too until I went looking for pictures for your profile and saw how they made it. They should keep it and run tours like they do the hobbit holes in New Zealand. Thanks for the heart
Comment: HEHE Love those gifs!!! I added one to your profile just because!! Thank you!
Response: â™¥ Thank you for the returned comment, but if you are shaking with excitement like that little guy you will be nothing but skin and bones by the 10th. Hmmmmmm maybe there is a plan there. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you very much for the great assortment of items! Everything is lovely, especially the origami frame to hold the card is so neat! I'll enjoy using them all and will check out your pinterest... many interesting boards you have created. Thank you again for a great swap! :D
Response: â™¥ I hope you find the things I sent inspiring. If you need something let me know. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Got your package todayy.. yaay.. thank you for everything.. i really appreciate it.. and yes getting some craft supplies here is so hard.. ill check on your pinterest right away after this.. i do really need some inspiration.. making pl is so much fun!! Xx
Response: â™¥ I hope you find some inspiration. Let me know if you need something. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: SuZi! I was so surprised, what are the chances out of all those people, of you sending to me? I loved the postcard, the little gnome stamp on the back is so cute.
I sent you a letter right before I left AIT, not sure if you got it. No rush if you did, but I lost quite a few pieces of mail through the postal system on Ft. Sam. :(
Response: â™¥ Glad you liked the card. Swap-bot has been real spooky with me lately. I didn't get your letter so the snails probably ate it. â˜» I hate that.
Comment: THANK You for the really cute found hearts swap!!! It has brought a smile to my face MANY times already!!! I especially like the one in the rolled up bark of the log! ;-) â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Hearts & Blessings, cc
Response: â™¥ I am always happy when I find something my partner likes. Thank you for the heart(s).
Comment: I was nervous when I saw your envelope in the body bag from the post office. However, I think most everything was still in it. The envelopes you sent are fantastic and thank you for the stamps, they are a welcome addition! :-)
Response: â™¥ There were at least 10 ATC and larger envelopes with a several tiny ones inside a few of them. Sorry the post demolished my outside envelope. Did not know if you had Israel stamps. Thank you for the heart
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful envie. Loved the handmade paper inside too! Is that a handmade artistamp? cool. Little House on the Prairie? I dont think I've ever seen them before. I think you stamped the fleur de lis on the envie. So pretty. Awesum! x
Response: â™¥ One of the stamps is from a class I took. The other is a sticker and of course the regular postal stamps. I have 3 sizes of the fleur de lis. I try to use them often since it is a symbol for Louisville where I live. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: I love my black and white pocket letter. So many creative little extras. I know the extras are to be used in our projects but so far I'm still hoarding mine in the original letters in a notebook.They are so wonderful I don't want to take anything out.
Response: â™¥ Wait 20 years and you will. I know. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: What a nice surprise to get your PL in the mail. I love everything, especially the little booklet you made and the punched borders on the coffee stained paper! The tiny tags were so darling. Thanks very much for everything <3
Response: â™¥ So glad you like it. I do hope the mug mats will lie flat again. I hope my message answered your questions. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Dear Suzi, thank you so much for the lovely pocket letter, I have not participated in many of the pocket letter swaps, but I am getting hooked, especially when I receive them I get so inspired! Every pocket was a lovely surprise and the sewing kit as the unexpected thing is so well thought! you are indeed a paper artist :)
Response: â™¥ I tried to be as random as possible and the sewing kit was a happy accident. So happy you liked. Thanks for the complement and heart.
Comment: ðŸ’“ ðŸ’“ ðŸ’“ [Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious](www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRFHXMQP-QU) ~ I am so over the moon with this precious journal you have made just for me! â™¥ it is now in my hands and I will cherish it forever â™¥ I think I will admire it for a very long time before I actually use it. â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ you are a thousand percent awesome! Thank you so much! Sorry but you can't have it back :) mine, mine, mine all mine! ðŸ’“ â™¡ â£ ðŸ’™ ðŸ’ ðŸ’ž ðŸ’–
Response: â™¥ I would never guess from that rating that you liked it. Ha ha ( was it worth the wait?) Thanks for the hearts.
Comment: Thank you so much for your happy pocket letter! I like it and all those things you added. I can write you a letter back and let's see if it's start of a penfriendship :)
Response: â™¥ I am very glad it made you happy. It would be great to get a letter back from you. It does not have to be a pocket letter if you would rather not go that route. Thank you also for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for an awesome swap beautiful envies & love how you decorated them & those were so fun having goodies inside. I really liked the paper clips to cool idea, I;ve never seen those before. Thank you :):)
Response: â™¥ So glad you liked. I was worried they were too simple. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Suzi, Thank you so much for the sweet comment. You are right, I could really need a cup of tea. I think I even might have some of the german tea you Put. Also your prayer is more than just appreciated. Thank you so much for caring.
Response: â™¥ Every little bit helps. I can only sympathize with you and pray for the best. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hey Suzi! Your first swap to Spain arrived yesterday so, it took 19 days to arrive! Usually it depends of the state, I can recive letters from the States in one week but there are others that can take even one month! Amazing really =/
I love love love the ATC you sent me (yep! I collect them) the textures on it are great! Thank you very very much. And thank you for all the extras you added in your envie, you can be sure I'll do a good use of them. Really, you deserve more than one heart!
Response: â™¥ 19 days is not too bad. So glad you like my "Lady in Red". That one was really hard to let go. I am happy she has gone somewhere to be loved. Thank you for the heart and kind words.
Comment: Oh Susi, I love this Blue Skinny, or should I say, Bleu Skinny. :) It's beautiful! And the envie/pocket is great, an awesome improvement on the original. I am flattered you would mention me on your blog. Thank you for everything, it was a wonderful swap, so much fun in a cheerful package!
Response: â™¥ Inspiration deserves recognition. I am glad you liked it all.
Comment: Thank you for "flutter by". Such pretty colors! Was it hard for you not to sturdy it up? Thanks for sharing your sister's art, that was fun.
Response: â™¥ Actually most of my ATCs start out that way and then I add the card stock after I am nearly finished. That way if I use brads or paper fasteners they are hidden. Glad you liked what I sent.
Comment: Got your envie today. It was lovely. Cannot wait to try the teas. Your envelope was very pretty and taped nicely but half of the bottom was ripped open and had a recv'd damaged stamp on it from the post office. Not sure if anything was missing. I got 2 tea bags and 2 note cards, a letter set and a personal note. (no cat reaction!) thanks :)
Response: â™¥ Sounds as if someone got curious. I think only one tea is missing. I send them out in threes. Glad I managed to keep my cat out of it.
Comment: Wow! My favorite color is green, my movie preference is mystery, the greatest thing I've overcome is depression, and meaning of life is compassion (I used the word love). We should have coffee sometime! :)
Response: â™¥ Lol your place or mine? (as in city where we live)
Comment: Love the Bookmark :-) Thank you so much for the extras - really like them ALL especially the string of hearts. I might have to try that sometime. Do you use a regular sewing machine or a hand stitcher? Take care, Annette
Response: â™¥ Those I bought like that on a full 12 x12 sheet to punch out. You could do it yourself on a machine with some tear away stabilizer as a backing. Glad you liked it.
Comment: Suzi - I received the envelopes today. I am SO sorry about the post office mix up. I am definitely going to talk with them about it - so weird! Your envelopes are GORGEOUS!!! I don't know if I'll be able to part with them - I think I'll just keep them in my collection. I wish I could give you a bunch of 5s and hearts! Thank you also for the notecards you included and the embossed page - I love it. What a neat embossing folder! I'm obsessed with them - now I have to track this one down and buy it! :-)
Response: â™¥ I do hope your post office gets its act together. Glad you think they were worth waiting for.
Comment: Thank you for the luscious variety of paper, the fortune cookie slips, and the little bag with stamps. :)
Response: â™¥ I laughed when I saw the 3 things you singled out. I am very glad you like the stamps, especially since they were from my Mom's collection. She would loved the idea they are making someone else happy.
Comment: This is a beautiful ATC. It makes me feel like I'm in the country on a warm summer day. I very much appreciate the special extra's you put in including the stamp for Birthdays. It was a wonderful surprise. Thank you
