Comment: Hi again! Glad to receive both from you, it is like a set and I love them! Hope my mail to you will be safe, I have sent you a message with a tracking number, do let me know when you receive! â¤
Comment: thank you for the very beautiful ATC! I actually have the exact acrylic stamp image of the teacup in a smaller size (which I used for my ATC), so I am curious as to where is the origin of your larger teacup cut-out :D update: 8/19/2017: I received the tea bags today, thank you :)
Comment: ♥I love what you sent, especially the letter seals and handmade birthday card! Thanks so much! We are going to Florida this weekend, so I'll get to spend my day on the beach! Happy birthday to you too!
Comment: Susie, it is wonderful to see you back here again...and your journal pages are gorgeous! I was thrilled to see how darling they are...can't wait to use them in one of my little album/journals. Please don't leave us again...it's lonely here without you!

Comment: Wow.. now this is a beautiful card.. I love her, so many pretty embellishments,, love that flower you used the corner and the pretty lace, and all in matching colors too..great job and love the extra goodies also,,Thank you
Response: Raven, i am so pleased you like it, I really enjoyed making this for you! TY 4 the heart!
Comment: I had to do some investigation as you forgot to mention the swap title^^, and, unfortunately, there is no postmark on the card at all; nevertheless, it is pretty and made me happy, so thank you <3
Comment: I am always in a ton of postcard swaps. The day I received yours, I received 12 other postcards. I don't have time to search through all of my swaps for a user name. I wanted to rate a 3 for this because you didn't put the swap name on the card, but it was not a required part of the swap so you got a 5 begrudgingly. The card was interesting and a new part of my collection, so thank you for that.
Response: I had a hard time choosing which book to use and a qute from the book Oh the places you'll go! I picked one that was most relevant in my life...funny how Dr Seuss can effect us as adults as well as kids, huh? =D
Comment: Oh, this is just lovely!!! The vintage style is so me!!! Thanks for all of the extra Valentine ephemera and for continuing in the series:) Happy Valentine Hugs to you:)
Response: This is such a fun themed swap!!! I am having so much fun with it! This particular swap was really fun once i finally decided on colors and patterns, which wasn't easy because i had so many ideas for about 5 different styles,! So glad you love it and thank you for hosting and for being my partner! =D
Comment: Thank you for the resent package! I love everything especially the beautiful cat sticker! The balloon confetti is a very nice touch. I feel like it's my birthday again in February!
Response: Oh my goodness! I am SO thrilled you are happy with it and that you finally got your birthday present! Sorry I had to resend! Thank you for being such an awesome swap partner! And thx for the heart too! =D
Comment: Hi Susie, Thanks so much for the wonderful ATC's!! Yes I can tell you put a lot of time and effort into them!! LOVE them, of course the cat one is my favorite!! :) Thanks also for the extra papers. Thanks for a lovely swap! :) I would give more hearts if I could.
Response: Mimi, I am so happy you like the ATCs and that you love the kitty ATC I made especially for you! I had a lot of fun making them too! Such a fun swap! Thx for the heart =D
Comment: Susie, I just adore this ATC! Your 'Dorothy' is so cute! And the 'home' shaped base and the Kansas postcard image? SOOO clever! Thank you for a lovely ATC to add to my collection--I love to swap together!
Response: Im so happy you like how it turned out! I had ordered some G$% papers on Amazon to make the ATC, but didnt get them in time for this swap! So, Im glad you like my take on it!
Comment: I love them both...and you are absolutely right: I adore roosters! (Not the real kind; they can be terrifying...but representations of roosters are right up my alley!) And the page showing the beauty of Arizona is so cool (actually, so hot?)...it is everything I imagine when I think of Arizona. My sister just moved to Surprise, AZ! Thank you for sending me such a fabulous envelope, Miss Susie...I love it all!
Response: Im So glad you are pleased :)
Thanks SO much for the kind compliments and awesome rating :)
Comment: AWESOME package of pens and washi, lace and ribbon! Thank you for all the goodies! And please forgive me for the late rating! I remember it made my day to receive your package. Thank you, Susie!
Comment: Thank you for the package! I really liked the drawing on the envelope. Very creative!
(I was just on my way to rate you when I got your message. I was going through the pile of mail that had arrived. It's been so slow during the holidays! )
Comment: Today, my mail man dropped off a bag of mail... like literally made me look like a movie star receiving fan mail :D A little late for Christmas, but who cares!!! I'm still feeding off the Christmas spirit!! THANK YOU FOR THE AWESOME CARD :D
Comment: You wrapped them so pretty. I totally suck at wrapping. And running out of tape and having to use double sided tape didn't help either LOL. Though you would think it would have. I so want to open these now. LOL I know just one more day. Merry Christmas and thank you for swapping with me.
Comment: Thanx so much for the adorable Atc & extra heart! I have ur pkg coming soon. Been swamped at work! Too many hours, once i have a few days off & i can breathe and go thru my hearts and keysI will send it after N years! Thanx for you patience! Such a pretty card! Dec just flew by! Can hardly believe 2016 is almost here! Thanx again for the great art swaps in 2015!!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the nice note! To answer your question, it will be a rough Christmas, actually. Just lost my dad - so this is my first year without family (not married and don't have children). But... Swap-Bot friends are making it better! Thank you for being one of them!
Response: Im so sorry to hear that! My new SB family has really made my Christmas so much brighter and fun, Im glad we can be your family as you all are mine as well! :)
Comment: Your lovely package arrived today! Thank you so much for putting this colourful swap together! It was not in time - but you informed me about that matter. I really appreciate all the little notes, your way of wrapping all these lovely gifts. Thank you so much for reading my profile so carefully! All the best, Kirsten
Comment: I 'm completely overwhelmed. I 've never seen a swap like this and the rest of the weekend I take off to enjoy, to take another good look and to experiment . I can only give you one heart, you deserve more, fantastic. Thank you very much!
Response: You are very welcome! I'm so glad you're happy and it feels great to be appreciated :)
I do strive to make every swap worthy of a heart, so thank you for that! ðŸ’—
Comment: Hi Susie! I didn't see a piece of jewelry that was handmade by you for me as the swap had requested, but I still have you a five. I really enjoyed going through all of the goodies. There were a lot of neat things you included that I can't wait to use. I do have a question. What material are the ivory bone like pieces made from and what do I use the bronze sharp pins to make?Thank you for the great swap :)
Response: Glad you like! The bracelets I made. such as the one with the red glass beads and the hemp one too... I sent ya a lot of stuff and right now im having a blank of what else I made!
Comment: Thank you for your pocket letter. I wanted to let you know the envie you made was made out of a priority mail envie/bag & so when it came it was postage due of $4.28. The mailman said even thou the priority mail was on the back of the envie if it is shown anywhere it will be charged for the priority mail rate.
Response: Aww no.... I've sent lots of mail that way and no one ever was charged before! I believe you, I'm just saying it goes to show that not all post offices are as flexible as others.. So, I owe you that postage, for sure but can it wait until 1st week of October? I don't have the funds right now. I'm so sorry! ðŸ˜Ÿ
Comment: Thanks for the nice assortment of backgrounds. And thanks for the piece of embossed metal. I can't wait to use that on a project.
Response: You are very welcome! Im so glad youre happy with them. I had a lot of fun playing with experimental techniques I have never tried before. Thank you for the rating, I always try to go above and beyond with all my swap partners. Its nice to be appreciated and receive a heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for the package. Unfortunately, it was sent late, with no communication until I contacted you. I know you're very upset about my initial "3" rating, so I'm going to change it to a "5," giving you the benefit of the doubt. I hope you can prevent "3" ratings in the future with good communication and time management.
Response: I appreciate that!
I keep seeing profiles of people asking other swappers to please contact them before giving a poor rating. I'm guessing thats in order to resolve any issues and to give them an opportunity to get a 5 rating. I just wish I would have had that same opportunity with you as well. I had no idea you were unhappy until I saw that 3 rating you gave me. I do appreciate you changing it to a 5, thank you kindly :)
Comment: Hi Susie! I am lifting you up in prayer. Hugs, Shannon
Response: Shannon, you have been so patient with me as a newbie! I really appreciate it and I apologize for that. Thank you so much for your prayers, your kindness and the heart too!
God Bless you!
Comment: I love it! Thank you so much for the wonderful PL. You really put your heart into it and it shows! Love the acrylic dots!!
Response: Im So happy you love it! You got my very 1st Pocket letter I made!
Those acrylic dots came out pretty good (for my 1st try) I was kinda worried about sending you stuff I had no experience making before,
Theyre so easy too! all you need is parchment paper and some plastic beads. Put in the oven for 8-10 mins at 425 degrees.. the longer you keep them in the oven the bigger and thinner they get. its fun to experiment with them too... next time i will pop a little image in a bottle cap, underneath the clear plastic beads before i melt them, for a cheap and easy way to get the look of Resin.:) I was kinda worried about sending you stuff I had no experience making before, and am so happy you are pleased!
Comment: Wow!! What an amazing swap!! I really wanted to give you a heart but it was sent 5 days late with no communication.
Beautiful stamps on the envie! Your note along with the ATC was so pretty I thought that WAS the ATC until I opened the ATC envie!!
Thanks for all the extra goodies too I can't wait to create something with them!! Thanks so much!!
Response: Thanks! sorry it was late, thats why I sent all the extras, to make up for it. If you really wanna give me a heart for the extra effort on the ATC, that would be awesome! Glad you like!
Comment: Sent late but with excellent communication. Lovely presentation and witty humor!! Love it. Decoed front and back!! Glad that it didn't melt on its way from AZ to IL. Thanks for your friendship and support w/ the mess I seem to be in, still.
Response: I hope you get your SB issues fixed so you can swap again soon!
