Comment: I received the bag. but for this last round, you had to send it back to its recipient (even if it was not finished) and send me a postcard closing the exchanges. too bad. after nothing serious, the bag will be sent in the coming days.
Comment: I received the swap, but I will be honest -- I was disappointed that you sent back the same bag I sent you for the last round. I wouldn't mind getting a bag a second time if there were new ATCs added since I last had it, but since you did not add anything to it, there's nothing for me to do but send it on to someone else. Just a bummer that I didn't get to "play" this round.
Response: Oh I’m so sorry, this happened to me once… I’ll try to be more aware next time.
Comment: I love the variety of the fun junk journal supplies that you sent me! I have already used a hamburger sticker -- I had the perfect page for it. I will really enjoy using everything. Thank you!
Comment: First of all.... I love your name! I have a dear friend named Ivy and she is the sweetest person I know. What a lovely name. I like how you chose to decorate the pages of your layout. It is fun to see each person's style. Thanks for sharing with me and for joining this swap. I plan to share my completed layouts in my Instagram account maggiez_creates
I created that account specifically for these kinds of swaps.
Comment: Oh wow, this has to be the strongest fragrance I've ever received in the mail! Perfect for the laundry cupboard. The notebook is lovely, I love the elephant illustrations. I can't wait to try the chocolate drinks! Thanks for the super amazing swap! 💖💖💖
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for all the lovely purple goodies!!! I was very pleasantly surprised to have received a package full of so much! I love the variety of ribbon, the postcards, the cutouts, the stickers, the bank note! Everything was really fun and Interesting! I really appreciate it! <3
Comment: Love your username! Wasn't this a fun swap? The Loveland postmark came on the envelope lovely and then the mailcarrier scribbled all over the stamp. What a shame, but I''ll cut that postmark out to keep. I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day.
Comment: Fantastic! I swear you didn't sent blind!
My 35 year old daughter absolutely adores Sloths ~ in 2nd grade she did a report on sloths (she demonstrated how slowly they move by crawling across the classroom taking 12 min to do so) and has been bonded with 'em since. She will be the new owner of this wonderful calendar. Thank you, thank you!!
Response: Oh that’s so wonderful. I’m a sloth fan too and this was too cute not to gift. O glad you love it.
Comment: Oh, that does sound like something I'd like. I put it on my Amazon list. Have you had the chance to read "The Devil and the Dark Water" by him yet? The summary of that one sounds very good as well. Thanks for the recommendation, take care! :)
Comment: Hello, Ivy. My name is May. Thank you so much for the cute sticker and the incredible birthday greeting card. It really brighten up my day. Stay safe and stay gorgeous. Love from Indonesia ❤❤❤
Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful card! You bet it brought a HUGE smile on my face <3 How sweet of you to choose the perfect card for me, you really made my day <3 I hope your birthday was great
Comment: Thanks so much for the cards -- I love these designs! BTW - they aren't kidding when they say the PO has slowed down. These just got here after 6 weeks! Can you believe it? So glad they made it, though. :) Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the cute mini flip book built inside of the card! The card is ADORABLE!! I have never seen one done this way. I also enjoyed the tea bag packages as envies too! So cute! Thank you for all of the fun stamped camera images, silk flowers and fun stickers! :D
Comment: What a stunning little happy mail!!! Thank you for putting so much thought into giving me a beautiful and charming surprise. I hope you enjoyed the swap as much as I did. I feel like I'm sorting in a big leather chair by a window in a library, reading about a beautiful garden, maybe some Katherine Mansfield. Wow! You perfectly demonstrated how a mail needn't be huge with 7 stamps on ot in order to be a delight.
Comment: hello! love those old cards =) my faves were the victoria glacier, the b/w wounded union members & of course, our public market scene (perfectly depicting the soggy weather today) - hope your weekend was enjoyable & thanks for recycling those postcards ~
Comment: Thank you for the postcard and telling me about what you would do on a trip to Bonney Lake. We have some beautiful areas and don't take advantage of them like we should. You made good choices! Thanks again and stay safe!
Comment: Hi Maes,
I am so sorry that it took some time for me to to get your rating done. However, due to health challenges I I just can't get as much done in a day as I would like to do. I love the Paper Collage you created for this swap. I like the different paper shapes you used. I also like the different kinds of papers you used as well. I'm looking forward to adding your ATC being added to the rest of the ATCs A DAY that I have received from other swappers. I will be adding yours to the rest of the collection and then adding all of them to My ATC COLLECTION.
Comment: I apologize for the late rating. I was going through a stack of mail this morning and found your postcard inside a store ad. It appears to have arrived about a week ago I think. (Judging by the store ad date) I’m so glad I found it before it got tossed out! What a Fun postcard you made. Thank you
Comment: Thanks for sending along the notecard! I have got to learn how to make envelopes like yours. I receive lots of them. Sunny Scotsdale, AZ? It snowed here in Western PA today! Can you believe it?
Comment: Thanks I received something today from you after a long journey. I think the mail is being rerouted due to this Coronavirus scare. Thanks for the items you sent my way. I let my daughter have the washi tapes. She really loves cactuses (very much). I hope you are staying safe where you live and away from this virus. Have a good day and happy swapping.
Response: Oh my goodness, so happy it finally arrived.
Comment: Thank you for the fun swap. The books do sound like something I would like. I'll have to see if paperbackswap has them available. Love that web site. Have swapped a lot of books through them. Reading Edgar Allan Poe right now. I've went back and read some of the classics that we never did in school. Thanks again.
Comment: Ivy, thank you so much - the article was wonderful! Also, thank you for the BEAUTIFUL washi tape you used on the envelope (the pretty pink floral with the gold on it!) I will definitely recycle and use it in my journal. (Hugs) P.S. Do you happen to remember where you bought it at? I'd love to know the name and where you got it so I can get some as well. It's beyond beautiful!
Comment: Sorry I rated this swap late because it didn’t have a name of who it was from and I sent you a message to confirm if it was from you and you replied back that it was. I received this swap on 2/27/20. Thank you. I love the envelopes.
Comment: Oh my goodness... when I say I am FLOORED by this beautiful journal... my heart was so warmed when I received it and I nearly cried. So much love and thought were put into it. Receiving it at this rough time really made me smile and made things a little brighter. It will definitely be put to good use. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so very, very much.
Response: I'm so happy you love it and the joy it has brought you.
Comment: Thank you very much for your wonderful letter! :) My day was indeed a lot better as soon, as I could relax and read your letter and I will answer your as soon as possible! And thanks for the clear handwriting!
Comment: Butter pecan cookies sound devine. Can't make it for my co workers coz they can't eat nuts but that just means more cookies for me to eat at home and not share with anybody. Maple is also one of my favourite flavours so I'm super excited to see what else I can use this buttercream on. Thank you!
Response: Yes the buttercream is devine… I plan to use it on everything (cupcakes, cakes, brownies, waffles). So yummy, glad you like.
Comment: Received your today Ivy! I so love your name! I was going to name my oldest daughter either Ivy, Fern, or Holly. Went with Holly & I told her about the names chosen & she said she would have loved Ivy. Anyway, Thank you for the Route 66 PC. I just love it! Oh how I wish I could visit Route 66 or any part of Arizona. But unfortunately I'm wheelchair bound & I can not travel with M.S. I hate it more than you know. Swapping keeps me busy & mind off things. Only thing i have hobby wise. BTW, Welcome to swap-bot!
Response: Wow that is so nice to hear, yes my name is very rare. Glad you like the postcard - it's fun to receive even if you can't travel. Stay well.
