Comment: Thank you so much! They are each perfectly made! Love the colors, tassels and fun items packed in each one! Was going to say which one is my favorite but I can’t, I love them all! God bless you
Comment: Thank you for the awesome blank cards. I was looking at one of them thinking it's from a Maggie Holmes collection. But I'm not to sure if it is or not. I can wait to write into them and send them someone with my thoughts in the cards. Thanks again.
Response: It is Maggie Holmes! I’m a big fan of her supplies! I’m glad you like them!
Comment: I would love to hear what kinds of crafting you do. I love just about everything but I guess sewing is my favourite. Thanks so much for all of the beautiful things! Some of them are going to become decorations for our house :)
Comment: I wish I could come and visit to see your art room! I too wish people would be as excited about crafting as I am. I have a fun little nook in our basement now. It has all kinds of vintage goodies that make me super happy. Send me a photo of your craft space on email! Id love to see it <3
Comment: I absolutely adore every little thing in your package, amazing treat. I really love the washi and the postcards and will put them to good use! Thank you so much for putting in so much attention to the swap.
Comment: Thank you so much! I enjoyed reading your letter (you have such nice handwriting). I love everything you included as well, especially the got7 stickers <33 Such a nice surprise to receive in the mail. Thanks again and happy swapping!
Comment: What a cool oversized PC! I love the fact that the USPS canceled the fake oversize French stamp on the front of the PC but the real stamp on the back is free & clear of markings, lol!!! xxMuggleMom
Comment: Thank you so much for all the great things you sent! It's all so pretty! I'm sorry it took so long to rate. It accidently got the wrong swap name on it so I had to just start going through all the swaps for Easter. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful mailing. I appreciate all the great postcards and I will really have trouble letting those go! I enjoyed your letter and I agree that your stationary is really adorable and pretty. I love tea pots and tea cups :)
Comment: Shelby, thank you so much for the happy mail- I love the postcards! I am jealous of your travels! I would like to go to Scotland someday. I have been good- lacking sleep (11 month old). Thank you for asking!
Comment: This swap was mailed 10 days late with no communication. I messaged to inquire before I rated but still no response. You marked sent on 5.8.22 but the postmark was 5.23.22 and the swap deadline 5.13.22.
Response: I’m so sorry this arrived late. I have responded to your message. I didn’t realize they were mailed late as I was unable to mail them personally. I marked sent when I thought they were safely in the mail. I’m sorry this wasn’t the case.
Comment: FYI - You actually sent a card from a different swap (“Traveling Postcards from Around the World”) - but I’m in those swaps too so I’ll get it back in the right rotation. Thank you for the goodies too!
Comment: Thank You for the assortment of birthday greeting cards and get well cards. Like you, I enjoy blank cards without sentiments inside which is my understanding of 'note cards' as opposed to 'greeting cards'. The greeting cards you sent were quite lovely and I do have some birthdays coming up where these will be perfect. I also liked the blank dark purple note card. I agree, building a stash is super fun. Thanks again. Happy Spring to you.
Comment: Great fun stuff for my journaling and crafts! Thank you SO much! I LOVE the vintage theme!! I am always excited to get antique and vintage stuff !! Thanks for so many fun things to play with! Im loving it all !!! xx Gabi
Comment: Thanks for the great card! I especially like the ones with pictures on the number side. In regards to where I get mine - I look for cards in every store I go to. My local pharmacy has some good ones, and also little shops at the beach.
Comment: Thank you for all of the goodies! You sent a fox/woodland animal washi that I have in my stash that I think it too pretty to share. I'm probably not going to share the sample you gave me either. Apparently I have to have IT ALL! 😂
Comment: Hi Shelby, thanks so much for the lovely swap! Your mermaid ATC is awesome <3 and I love how nice and neat everything was. Thank you so much for the extra goodies as well, Sumikko Gurashi is my favorite!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 as always, it is a pleasure swapping with you again.
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for all of the amazing seals and all the wonderful goodies you sent along with them as well! I was not expecting that and it was so generous and kind of you! Everything was amazing! I love the seal with the mountains and stars. It looks exactly like the symbol from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J Maas!!!
Response: I'm so sorry for not responding as I did! I became sick in March suddenly and couldn't swap. While it was extremely late, when I recovered, I did send out the lyric journal back in July. I have tried to reach out to see if you ever received it but haven't heard back. I'm more than happy to send again! Please let me know. Again I am very sorry!
Comment: Shelby, thank you so much for all the goodies and the extra you sent. Thank you for your extra thought but it's not necessary to send vintage if you don't have any. I appreciate it though. Everything is super cute!
Comment: WOW WOW WOW!! This was a super wonderful and fun to open swap! Best I have had in a while! You really spoiled me. From the adorable packaging to the colorful shred, to all the perfectly curated items, that even if they weren't my traditional style, they were totally something i would lLOVE. You just nailed it. I loved this and am SOOOO glad you were my partner! Thank you so much Shelby. I am sending you something back asap! I just have to! You are awesome!!!
Response: Yay! I’m thrilled that you liked it! I had so much fun picking everything out and putting it together! I always have so much fun in the swaps you host so I’m very excited that I could do something for you! Thank you for such kind words!
Comment: I want to start out by apologizing for taking so long for rating you for this swap. I had misplaced several swaps; had to take my desk apart to find them. I got excited to open the envelope again; its like opening a present on your birthday and Christmas. Thank you for taking the time to make this for me; you are very creative.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty tags. And how nice of you to send me 3 ☺️
I love them all. It seems this one was your 2nd, according to your note. I didn’t receive the 1st one, which I hope it got sent back to you. I felt lucky today. Take care, Shelby 🤗💕
Response: I believe the first one did get returned to me! I’m glad it arrived safely this time! I’m thrilled that you like them!
Comment: omg! I actually just received this today! I thought that maybe I was just disorganized (well, I guess I am sometimes!), and I was concerned that I hadn't "rated" this swap. Turns out your beautiful envelope was waiting for me when I came home from work today! The pockets are stunning as are the extras! I have heard that the largest Post Office in our area (Cleveland) is a "black hole." Apparently that is true! So sorry that this took so long to arrive and I couldn't thank you sooner!! Dawn (dagmar)
I realized this was on my "Sent" list and still not completed! So sorry for the delay!
Comment: Hi Shelby! I'm sorry I didn't write to you sooner. When I received your ATCs, I had one foot out of the door. But wanted rate asap. Your ATCs are made perfect!! FLAWLESS VICTORY! Just beautiful!! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely mail! I enjoyed to go through everything! You did such a great job creating this awesome flipbook. Thank you again for brighting up my day. I wish I could give you more than one heart :)
Response: I’m so so glad I was able to brighten your day! I had so much fun putting everything together and am thrilled that you liked everything! Thank you for such kind words!
Comment: Hi! Sorry I’m a bit late with rating. I’ve had a lot going on and just started working. Anyway, thank you so much for all of the beautiful things that you sent me! Did you die cut that rain boot? Everything is gorgeous and I like your design style! Where did you get the Alice postcard? I’m in love! Lol!
Response: No problem! Im glad it arrived safely! Thank you for joining my swap! I did die cut the rainboots! They were the first time I've made them! I'm glad you liked them! I received the Alice postcard for my birthday. I believe they were from Barnes and Nobles? I'm so glad you liked it!
Comment: Oh gosh! Thank you so much Shelby. Your swap made my day today. Simply, beautiful & sweet. ☺️
I will definitely do private swaps again with you in the future! I just added you as friend here. Hope mine arrives sometime soon to you. Take care.
Comment: Thank you so much! I love everything -- the little bags and envelopes are darling. I love the lavender so I will definitely use the stickers:) The washi tape is cool and different than anything I have. And new teas to try!! :)
Comment: Hi Shelby,
I love the St. Patrick's Day Pocket Letter you created for me. If I am slow in rating you, I apologize and I will work to do better.
I love the colors you used, they are GREAT for this holiday Pocket Letter you created. I like the varied ideas you came up with for each pocket. I also appreciate the items you put in each pocket. They are all items I can use.
I think this is our second or third time swapping with one another.. It has been GREAT to swap with you again and I hope we swap again in the future. Until then, Happy Swapping.
Mail in and out of Colorado continues to be slow. Please be Patient! Thank You!
Comment: I was having a terrible day today, and when I opened your envelope, I actually cried! It was perfect, and oh so very generous! I loved the shaker band. You designed everything with such care. Thank you so much for bringing some much needed sunshine to my day!
Response: I’m sorry you were having a hard day! I’m glad I was able to help make it a little better! I’m so glad you enjoyed my craft!
Comment: WOW! I am speechless! First of all, the card you sent is beautiful. I hung it straight up on my bulletin board. Secondly, the little flip book! It was such a joy to open. Each page brought a new surprise and even a bigger smile. Thank you for all the goodies, but especially the time it took to create something so special! It not only brightened my day but it lifted my soul! THANKS
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the card, flipbook, and extras! I had so much fun creating the flipbook and I'm thrilled it was well received! Thank you for such kind words!
Comment: Hi Shelby! I got the ATC bag, but you sent me back my own bag that I sent you in the last round. Oops! It happens. :) I'll just pass it on in the next round, but this is a friendly reminder to double check in the future.
Response: Oh my gosh! Im so sorry! Please let me send you another! Im going to message you!
Comment: Thank you for an AMAZING flip book- love love love these, and so few people are willing to put in the effort to make a clean- sharp- creative way of sending a letter and goodies. Thank you Shelby! You are a TOP TOP swapper!
Comment: YAY! It arrived! I can't believe you se did this right before your trip. It turned out super cute. Thank you!!! (FYSA, the original flip book has not arrived- I fear the post office ate it.) LOL...
Response: Ugh! Im so sorry the original hasn't arrived! Im glad you like this one and that it arrived safely! I'll keep an eye open in case it gets returned to me for some reason once I return home!
Comment: I wish I could give you many hearts for this amazing package. I absolutely love the flip book and all the goodies! THANK YOU so much. This happy mail brought me so much joy and I love all the botanical items... perfect for spring and I love all the details. YOU ARE AWESOME! Thank you again and blessings!
Comment: Lovely Valentine's themed accordion happy mail! Thanks so much- love the letter too. Do you want me to write you back (pen pal?) or nah? Let m know. People are sometimes weird about that here on SB...
Response: I’m so glad it arrived safely! Feel free to write me back I’d love to be penpals! I’m glad you liked it!
Comment: Hi Shelby,
Thank you so much for your very cute and creative Envelope Album, Valentine theme, you created and filled for me. Your package late last week. Mail in and out of Colorado has been slow. All of what arrived in the pockets of your Album will be utilized by me and theta will be utilized by guests in my apartment. This album was fun to make and will be one I will use again.
Just an aside, my youngest sister lived in CT for about 25 years and worked for GE Capital and GE for most of the time she lived there. She lived in Cos Cob during a few of the early years she was in CT. She lived in Old Greenwich for the largest amount of her time, finding a home she purchased. She sold that home and moved to Colorado Springs and is building a retirement home, but will be working from it for a few years before she fully retires. Sometimes its a small world.
I enjoyed swapping with you and hope we get to do it again in the future. Happy Swapping until we meet again.
Response: Really is a small world! I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who has heard of Cos Cob! I’m so glad you liked the swap! I’m sorry it was late!
Comment: Thanks for your great list! Papercrafts are my favorite, as well. (I'm still trying to come up with ways to organize all the goodies I've collected from swapping, but I'm having fun coming up with ideas!)
Comment: Oh I am so jealous! I have wanted a golden retriever for so so long. They are like the best dogs! And I was thinking I need to hire you to come get me organized...LOL. I buy all sorts of crafting stuff but I just put it in my room and have to dig to find them when I am ready to do my crafting.
Comment: I'd love tips on organizing. My apartment is beyond a mess. Me and my husband both lost alot of weight during the last couple of years so we have clothes everywhere plus the 3 of us all like art so there are supplies everywhere. Not to mention the books lol And of course with a child in the house toys, toys and more toys. I dont even know where to begin with organizing.
Comment: Awesome list! I love creating junk journals and not so junky journals too... also very much into paper crafting and organizing!!! I just have not found my "Desk Peace" Yet! I'm hoping to get to desk peace in 2021~~ LOL
Comment: Warm Winter Greetings,
Thank you for all Christmas themed goodies you sent me. Smiles abound!
I have been away from home since Thanksgiving, so it was like Christmas to open up all my swaps.
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the adorable Christmas post card! I hope the construction turns out okay and doesn't get too much in the way of your Christmas celebrations! Merry Christmas and much love!
Comment: Thank you for pretty petite card. I am a fan of the little cards. I went shopping after work today to look for more cards and didn’t find much but I did buy one box of cards. I wasn’t gonna buy anymore until I used up what I have but I couldn’t resist! Happy holidays.
Comment: Thank you for the Beautiful Christmas card!! I appreciate the time you took to write inside the card as well. It is beginning to get a little cool here. Usually by Halloween night, it is pretty chilly here. I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!! Xoxo
Comment: Thank you so much, Shelby. This flipbook is beautiful and so special to open. I received it on a day I was having some feelings and I totally cried looking through it. Thanks for the care and love you put into it.
Comment: Oh, Shelby! Thank you so much for the things you put in your handmade envelope! I almost missed the die-cuts - I found them as I was examining how you made your envelope! I do love what you sent - everything! Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you for the swap and goodies :D I was supposed to be in Japan now, but everything is cancelled! I see that you addressed the envelope upright, they actually charge an extra .15 cents if you write it that way! That's probably why it got sent back ^^; Anyway, thanks for the swap :D Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful assortment of vintage ephemera! I especially love the vintage postcards. Also nice job with the presentation of the items (little card with pockets). Hope you're well!
Comment: Thank you so much for the special envelope! I love Prima Marketing and the folder was so well put together. I really love the space-themed sticker stamps too! I really look forward to using everything in here for future happy mail!
Response: Im so glad you like everything! Im obsessed with prima marketing so was excited to use it on this mail! Thank you for such kind words!
Comment: Hubby just brought the mail in and wow! I love all the cool pieces of ephemera you chose for me! The pocket you created to hold the ephemera is so cool and I will definitely be making some of these. Thanks so much!
Comment: Sorry for the late rating! Thanks for swapping with me; the Bermuda cards (and others) are fabulous. I like the plastic sleeves you sent them in... where did you purchase them? Also FYI your envelope came stamped with a "postage due $___" stamp from the post office. I think that if envelopes are too thick they are considered packages. Be well!
Response: Thank you for letting me know! The plastic sleeves I got off amazon! Im glad you liked the cards! thank you for swapping!
Comment: Wow! You really stuffed a lot in this tiny box!! Lol!! I literally was like “awe omg what? Amazing” and my husband was rolling his eyes at me Bc I’m a child who enjoyed the thumbs up paper clip more than I should of 😂😂😂 thank you so much for truly making my day. This bag with the quote is my new fave “ what sunshine is to flowers- smiles are to humanity” ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 I immediately put my sunglasses in them and it’s perfect. Thanks so much 🥰
Response: Im so glad you liked everything! im glad it made you happy! Thank you for the rating and the comment on my page! It made me very excited!
Comment: What a fabulous flip book, you couldn't have picked a better theme for me, I don't think I'd survive without coffee and I absolutely love the tarot card, did you make that? It's got coffee and a cat - perfect. Thank you so much. 😀😀😀
Response: I actually got a set of cards that have that tarot card pictured on them. I got them from society6. I love them too! Im glad you liked everything!
Comment: OH MY GOSH!!! You went ABOVE AND BEYOND for this swap!!! You're so sweet and thoughtful for the goodies you included!!!! I can't wait to use the stickers and other goodies you included!!! Thank you!!!!!! <3
Response: Thank you for such nice words! Im so glad you liked everything!
Comment: Shelby! Omg your tag flip literally made me cry happy tears! It’s like your in my head and you’ve never met me! It’s absolutely stunning and absolutely 100% my style I’m completely blown away with it and it’s just cheered me right up and everything is absolutely gorgeous! I’m so so so happy with it!! OMG and my mum wants to steal it as she was here when I opened it 😂 THANKYOU!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Comment: This tagflip deserves all the hearts you can possibly give. I got it today and how cute is the chocolate bar you included I'm totally in love with it all. I loved how you packaged it as well with clear instructions. Your sequins mix matches perfectly as well. This is my first time recieving something made with crate paper all heart. So it's a treasure I currently have it hanging up with all my other tagflips.
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Happy Valentines Shelby
Response: Im so glad you liked it! I love all these swaps that you host and the chance to make new things like sequin mixes and tag flips! Im so happy that everything arrived safely! thank you for such an amazing comment it made my day!
Comment: I enjoyed your letter so much. I haven’t been out of the USA except 25+ years ago I went into Mexico with friends down in south Texas. Thank you very much for the beautiful goodies. I literally squealed. ❤️
Response: Im so happy to hear you liked everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: What a wonderful swap, from the beautiful mail art envelope, to all of the goodies inside. I will enjoy a cup of tea while I use the stamped images to make cards and/or ATCs and I love these dog stickers. I had never seen puffy stickers like them. Thank you for everything.
Comment: I came her to get your "real" first name since I'll be featuring your "Pooh" card on the blog tomorrow (for Winnie-the-Pooh Day!). Then, I realized, you'd never been rated--or the rating "dropped" off. Either way, I'm so sorry for the late rating. I absolutely flipped when I received the postcard. I love it so much! Thank you so much! Many hearts for you! Hope to see you in more group swaps! Happy 2020
Comment: Wowzers Shelby! Thanks for so many different types of memo sheets and sticky notes. I love the variety and quantity. The 'pantone' and 'while you were out' are my favorites. You are very generous. Feeling the love. <3 -Michelle
Comment: Shelby, I got my very first pocket letter in the mail today and I loved everything about it, and all my little goodies, if I could give you ten hearts I would! Can't wait to start a binder with these pocket letters! Thank you a ton!!
Comment: Update: I love everything you sent and didn't have any of those so no duplicates. Super cute!!!! Thanks again for swapping :)
Thank you very much! I love the wrapping and can’t wait to open tomorrow night!
Comment: Hi Shelby, I want to thank you very much for making good on this swap. You sent an absolutely beautiful PL. I love your work. I hope that you are doing well. Maybe we will swap again soon. Take care.
Response: Hi, I am so sorry for having gone MIA like I did. I became sick in March and was unable to keep swapping. When I recovered I sent out the swap although it was very late. I don't know if you ever received it and have tried to reach out. I am more than willing to send another Pocket letter. I am so very sorry!
Comment: Wow Shelby, what a gorgeous and thoughtful letter that feels so tailored to me, you really put a lot of thought into it! I love the paperletterblog too and Vivian is the reason I got into swapbot as well! I can't wait to look up craftpurge. I'm delighted that you've got a supportive social group too :) let me know if you'd like me to reply in the new year and be casual pen pals 💖
Response: Im so glad you liked the letter! Id love to keep penpaling!
Comment: Dear Shelby, your poems struck a chord with me. I felt touched and i almost cried. Your expressive words get accurately underlined by the bold strokes and colours. A huge thank you and all the best, Anja
Response: This comment made my morning! I'm so glad you enjoyed the poetry! Thank you for such kind words!
Comment: (⊃｡•́‿•̀｡)⊃━☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ Thank You Shellbee for the beautiful letter. Japanese Maple Trees are my favorite trees! The snowmen washi tape is so pretty! I am especially touched by your genuine and meaningful handwritten poem that required some of your undivided attention and quality time. I am sincerely touched. Thank you. Blessings to your and your family. 💖❥💞❦💕❧💗♡💓♥️❤️❤💘ღ💝❣💘💚💟💙💜💛 εїз Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ ❤ ƸӜƷ εїз xoxo Lora
Comment: Shelby! Thank you SO much for the wonderful Christmas Junk Journal! I love it so much!!! I wish I could give you a thousand hearts. I love every single page! You are so creative! Thanks again! -Nikki @Snaileditcrafts
Response: I had so much fun making it and am so glad you enjoyed it! It was my first junk journal I made for someone else!
Comment: Most amazing thing I've ever gotten in the mail!! An absolute wonder of a piece; it just got cuter and more amazing with each thing I noticed. I especially appreciate the supplies you included to help me really jumpstart my forays into the world of letters. And to answer your questions: I'm working on traditional gothic script with my trusty stub nib but must admit I got into the hobby as I actually have terrible handwriting and I wanted to inspire myself to improve. This island's sub-island is just where I go to school at the moment, but I've grown to call it home.
I hope I'll make something as incredible as this someday!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! Im so glad to hear that you enjoyed it all! I had fun putting it together! Im sure your crafting is great too like I said in the message my project from even just last year felt unusable to me now!

Response: I'm happy you enjoyed everything! Thank you for your kind words!
Comment: What I liked most about this swap was effort and personalization of the cook book. That was delightful. I can appreciate the fact that you are moving, so it wasn’t the stuff you intended to send. But a quick communication could have cleared that up a bit too. Thank you for sending what you did. Cheers.
Comment: Thank you for the nice washi. I found this set at Michaels a couple years ago. It’s good quality and different than usual Halloween washi. Rating only due to lateness. 10/31/19 I received the second washi. Thank you for the resend.
Response: I have sent out another washi swap and hope you get it soon!
Comment: Thank You sooooo much for Your Happy Mail!!!! It was indeed a very happy mail...I really appreciate that you took so much care and thought to put together all the items I like into this mail!!! It takes effort to do this and I really appreciate it...you deserve more than just 1 Star...can’t wait for this system to be upgraded to allow flexible stars rating...clearly you deserve more than 5 stars for this one!!!!! Thank You once again and Happy Autumn!!!

Response: I'm so happy you liked it! Tombow's are my favorite brush pen so I hope you like it as much as I do!
Comment: Unfortunately I never received anything for this swap :(
Response: I sent out a pocket letter as well as an apology for the extreme lateness back in July. I became suddenly sick in march and couldn't continue swapping. I have since attempted to reach you to see if you received it but haven't heard back. Again, I am so sorry for crazy lateness of this swap.
Comment: Shelby! Thank you for the lovely happy mail and even more lovely chit chat letter :) loved the extras but that's not the reason why I am going to reply LOL!
If could gimme you Adress, I will answer really soon, I just can't find the envelope -. - shame on me haha!

Comment: Happy Valentine's Day-it was more like Christmas(yes we are in the midst of a blizzard now) but I meant all the wonderful goodies you sent. Such a variety and I really like everything you sent. You much have read my profile(lovely peace sigh fabric) Thanks for sending such a great box of detash-hooray! Thanks!

Comment: Wow! What a fun pocket letter! I love each pocket being a color and that they each have a funky paperclip(I LOVE funky paperclips!!!) thanks so much for including the stickers you made. What a fun project!
Comment: Hello again Shelby. It was fun to read your list. Even though there is a big age gap between us we do have a few things in common. I love the stamps you made. The Winnie the Pooh quote is also one of my favorite and written in the quote journal I keep. I will enjoy the tea tonight while I sit here and watch it snow.
Comment: @shellbee8, your swaps always succeed to make me happy and smile! thank you for making this swap extra special for me, I love the Disney postcards and all the super cute stickers! the San-X stickers are amazing !! ❤️❤️❤️

By the way, your handwriting is so gorgeous!!! I appreciate all the thought you put into your package, sooooooo much fun!! Happy 2019!! Deanna
Response: Thank you for such kind words they really made my day! Im glad you enjoyed everything!
Comment: For your first loaded envie swap you did a great job! You certainly sent enough! I will enjoy using all these items. The envelope you made to hold things is an excellent idea,
Also I love the envie you sent the swap in.
Comment: I just love the old style unicorns of lore. Makes me happy! Thank you. Good! You know the struggle of Kon Marie. It’s awful sometimes at Michael’s. No, I can’t appreciate it at the store, it needs to come home with me!” The only crafty thing I said thank you and have a good life was a couple paper pads, the rest? Well, I turned a guest bedroom into my crafty space. Why keep a room for guests that maybe come once a year? All of that went and the arty farty moved in :)
Response: We are redoing my house and we are legitimately doing the same thing! Instead of a guest room I finally get a craft room! So excited to have a space for my supplies and feel less cluttered!
Comment: A glossy golden envelope always feels like a prize! Thank you :)
BTW what is that plastic sheet with the alphabet? Just that (it will be fun to use in a junk journal!) or does it have a special purpose?
Response: To be honest I wasn't 100% sure either. I also received it in a de-stash swap. After some research I believe it is meant to be cut out and used as ephemera but using it in a junk journal sounds better to me!
Comment: Thank you for the teas! I got it in my PO Box today. It was delayed bit. It said to return to sender for extra postage, but somehow made it to me after a few weeks. I had the same thing happen to me recently, even though it had more than enough postage. Anyhoo, it has arrived safely and I can't wait to try them out! Happy New Year! All my best, Kerry :-)
Comment: I got your letter today! Thank you for the coffee and teabag :) I couldn't find coffee sachets of "normal" size and I couldn't even find local coffee! Earl Grey is actually one of my favorite teas <3
Good luck on your final project :)
Comment: Thanks so much for your letter :) I'd love to write you back but I threw away the envie on accident UGH. Could you PM me your address? I love that you took the time to read my profile. I'd love to swap with you in the future too. Oh and thanks so much for all of the goodies.
Comment: Shelby really made my week with this lovely package :) it came in a bright blue bubble envelope and was stuffed with goodies! I love each and every sticker she sent me. I can tell she really has an assortment of a collection. It made me really happy to receive beautiful planner goodies and note cards with sweet quotes . I love quotes! Thank you!
Comment: Oh my goodness! I went crazy opening up your swap, everything is so cute! And thank you so so so much for the twenty one pilot stickers! You have no idea how much i love these, they are so beautiful. <3 <3 <3
Response: I was so excited to get the chance to share the twenty one pilot stickers with another fan! Im glad you enjoyed it all!
Comment: Thank you so much for reading my profile and choosing stickers just for me! I am soooo excited about the Halloween ones!!!! I like all the other ones, too! I appreciate your thoughtfulness! Julie
