craftynut rated for 31 Day Advent Swap – UK only on Nov 26, 2023
Comment: Thank you for an amazing swap. When I opened it, two of our granddaughters were round and they were so excited but then disappointed when I wouldn't let them open the packages. I explained that it was like an Advent calendar, so each one had to be opened on the right day. They were then put in number order. I also had to agree to opening them when the girls were here because they didn't want to miss out. The stickers with the numbers on were a hit too. I have felt a few and can't wait till the end of November. Thank you for making them look so good.
Comment: Time to catch up on ratings for the last couple of days post. Thank you for a great swap. I have worn the necklace and some colleagues asked where I had bought it. When I explained they were disappointed that they couldn't get one. The reindeer went down a treat with the granddaughters that were round. Thank you for the time you put into it.

I just received your letter from the "Send to the person above you" tag on the forum. Thank you so much for the postcards and stickers! It took me a little while to identify it because your username and the tag weren't included, but I hope I got it right. Happy swapping!

Petaltea on Feb 25, 2022:

I just love these postcards!! Thank you for the surprise tag! ❤️

itsnobody on Sep 13, 2021:

Thank you your CD arrived and I can't wait to try it out on my way to work. Fun thing is that the package stayed at our customs for a long time and they were asking me for documentations for the package but I totally forgot that I was waiting on package from the UK, and told them to send me back documentation with the insides o the package lol so time passed by and one day it came to my door without me having to pay any taxes o.o What a luck!!
