Wish you had a way to thank her? Here's the place!

I have someone I'd like to recognize as being a very awesome hostess!! tntsmom is the best! She always posts swaps that are fun and she's very prompt in returning them. Stef - you ROCK girlfriend!!

chris1josh2 01-26-2007 05:14 PM

I feel that all of the hostesses on here are great. There are actually 2 that I would like to give a shout out to and they are stampinmomof2cuties and stampin ninja. They both have gone out of their way to make sure that everyone is enjoing the swap and to get them back on time if not before the deadline. Thanks so much for doing what you do ladies. As was posted above - YOU BOTH ROCK!!!!! Have a great evening ladies.

mesuezee 01-26-2007 06:26 PM

I would like to recognize Lavafrogg. She invited me to my first swap and have been hooked since. She communicated really well and I think thats really important!

I think this a great thread to be started! It's always wonderful to recognize the positive!

tntsmom 01-26-2007 07:17 PM

ahhh Stampedbym you are so sweet! I love it when you sign up for my swaps!! Your cards are always so beautiful!!!

a1r601 01-26-2007 07:24 PM

Sorry Kim to hijack this thread...

I just started joining swaps in November and got hooked fast!!! Thanks to my crazy sistah swappers and hostesses...each and every hostess has been such a pleasure to work with. I've made so many great friends in past couple of months. All the reason for my first swap - SCS HOSTESS APPRECIATION TIN SWAP to send our appreciation to all of the great hostesses out there that have made the swaps a great success!!!

Shout out to some awesome gals: ldcamer, chris1josh2, uggentoo, shea, shadowNIN, scrapnva, tlc72gal, doodah, mesuezee, cspessmeg and scrappyscrapper.

Love to you all!!!!

scrapnva 01-26-2007 08:04 PM

I'd like to express my complete happiness and gratitude to all of the hostesses that I have swapped with--especially ldcamer. I was a newbie interested in swapping here and all of the hostesses welcomed me with open arms, encouragement, and support.
This is truly a wonderful site!!
Ldcamer (Lauren)'s swap was the first one that I joined. She reminded me that everyone was a newbie once!!

Also, Alma--a1r601 is a true gem because she helped myself and others become acquainted with the swap organizer xl spreadsheet that is available as a download --what a wonderful way to keep organized!!
Chris1Josh2 is an absolute sweetie--always staying on top of things in her swaps and those she is helping--always with a kind word for everyone
DRStamper--another great hostess--

Cameldiva(Diane), dbennett(Denise), jostamps(Joanne), laderme(Robin), renski(Angela), smallpigpig(Peggy) to name a few I've swapped with lately! They are all great and such fun. Good communicators which is the basis of a good swap. Must also mention a few south of the border, debcst(Debbie), khall (Kelly), lstyn (Laura) amongst others I've swapped with recently. Great swaps from all of these lovely ladies!
:D

PS Hope I didn't miss anyone! I did, I missed theeb(Carrie) she did a great TC Technique swap!

PMR 01-28-2007 06:00 AM

I would like to recognize mesuezee for a great swap. It was her first swap. It was also my first swap. She did an excellent job! She mailed out the first group as soon as she received them and is going to do the same for the other groups. I would like to recognize the other card makers too, all the cards are great!

pam5 01-29-2007 07:08 AM

Marji is an awesome host. Her swaps fill up super fast. She has great ideas. She keeps her swaps bumped up several times a day. She lets us know what mail she receives everyday. She is an AWESOME host!!!

jostamps 01-29-2007 07:40 AM

Lily_Louise, smallpigpig, Renski, debcst, theeb, s1itcher46 - lots of others that I've had great experiences with but it's been awhile so I can't remember everyone!

Thanks so much! You are making me :oops:. I am so glad you are enjoying my swaps. I LOVE being a hostess. It is so much fun to see the wonderful work that all of the ladies on here do! I think the thanks should go out to all of the swappers because if not for all you lovely ladies it would not be so much fun to host them.

Littlekel90 01-29-2007 08:08 AM

I just have to tell everyone!! MrsE is AWESOME! I love her swaps (a little biased, because she was my first hostess on swaps though). She gave great prizes as well with the quote challenges and for having your cards in early! I have a few other ladies that I am in swaps with and will keep you posted as I receive my cards back. Thank you all!

Now I am DEFINITELY HOOKED ON SWAPPING!

DapperD 01-29-2007 02:04 PM

I just have to recognized Chris1Josh2 (Heather) for being an incredible hostess. My first swap in SCS was with Heather's Thank You Card swap. Her kind and caring words, staying on top of things, communicating with us, helpful, returning swaps on time, extremely efficient in every way. From the minute I signed up for one of her swaps I felt I'd been a friend of hers for years. She's a sweetie and I want to grow up to be just like her.:cool:

roachstamps

StacyK 02-01-2007 07:47 AM

I want to recognize and thank scrapnva. I'm so grateful that you post
your recipes to the gallery. Your work inspires me and I think it's great to
give new swappers incentive to join swaps, it did for me.

I'm new to hostessing, doing my first three right now and this feedback is helpful to me to be an effective hostess with the mostess. When new swappers have questions or insecurities they always appreciate learning about the galleries.

dvinson 02-01-2007 08:42 PM

Let's hear it for MrsE and nsansoni....
 
These ladies do a fantastic job!! Prompt, friendly, informative and always encouraging. Hats off to you both! Thanks for all you do!
I'm enjoying this thread-very helpful.

pugs99 02-04-2007 06:51 AM

I haven't been swapping too long, but all of the swaps have been great experiences. Everyone is patient and helpful with the newbie questions.
Hostesses that I have swapped with more than once. I apologize if I've forgotten anyone.

debcst (Debbie Stevens) has a great DKOS swap that is VERY addicting. She is a great hostess!!!

Renski 02-04-2007 08:20 PM

lily_louise, cameldiva, jostamps, smallpigpig, jostamps- these ladies are the ones I have been swapping with lately. I am really enjoying doing swaps with all of you!!

speechdonna 02-05-2007 05:57 PM

debcst is amazing!!! I don't know how she keeps all of her swaps straight, she always has so many going at one time, and she is wonderful!! Very pleasant, friendly, organized, talented..... Thanks, Debbie!

speechdonna 02-05-2007 05:59 PM

Other wonderful hostesses I've had the pleasure of "meeting" lately:

nansoni, wannabastamper, LauraJean, chris1josh2, smallpigpig.

All excellent swappers!!

sweetpea111403 02-09-2007 12:17 PM

I love this idea..
I can't say that I have had *bad* experiences per say and I have had a great time in all my swaps. And you ladies know I am addicted to swaps. But some of the hostess with the mostest in my book are:

johnson_marji
tntsmom
LauraJean
mot
shadownin
conductorchick
go90feet
jmhoffman
mrsshannonc
jonjinko

I am sure this list will only grow as I meet more and more talented ladies on SCS swaps.

Ditto, Kelly. I've either been in a swap hosted by one of these ladies, or been the recipient of one of their incredible ATC's. These gals are awesome.

THAT is EXACTLY what makes a GREAT hostess!

NurseT 02-12-2007 11:41 AM

"WOW" what a great idea! I used to swap all the time and now don't have a lot of time to swap but when I do I enjoy swapping with a few hostesses.
These ladies are so awesome! I cant say enough good things about them.

These ladies always keep their swappers laughing and make everyone feel so welcome. They understand when people are in the hospital and cant continue in a swap. They understand when "Life" happens and are more than willing to find swappers to fill a void! With all that being said they keep swaps bumped and current. They keep their thread updated on the original post, they always
returns swaps in a timely manner. Its hostesses like you that keep people comming back for more.
Thanks ladies for being such GREAT Hostesses!!!!

chris1josh2 02-12-2007 11:53 AM

Thank you so much Donna and T. I am so glad you enjoy my swaps. I just try to do what I would like for someone to do for me. Of course, it helps to have a rockin' bunch of swappers that keep me updated on everything and do such wonderful work. You all make it so much fun and so easy to be a hostess. Hope to see you all in future swaps. Have a great day everyone.

ShadowNIN 02-12-2007 11:57 AM

Thanks Jess and T!!! You guys just made my day!!! :D And you are so right Heather! It helps to have AWESOME swappers who keep it interesting and keep the laughter rolling! ;)

jmhoffmann 02-12-2007 12:07 PM

OMG...I am so honored and humbled! I try to keep things very low key and relaxed. I honestly understand when "life" happens and try to either get an "angel" or just clear out that particular spot. Along with a wonderful hostess comes WONDERFUL swappers so KUDOs to you too!! Thanks so much for nominating me, Jess and T...my heart is full!! :mrgreen:

LauraJean 02-12-2007 12:10 PM

Thanks so much for the recognition!!! It means so much to me (especailly since I am a newbie at hostessing!) I love hostessing....and it helps to have some of the nicest gals in my swaps!!!

conductorchik 02-12-2007 12:50 PM

Awwww....thanks Sweetpea!! I'm so honored!! You have been a pleasure to have in my swaps!

mot 02-12-2007 12:58 PM

Thanks a bunch Jess! I will remember your encouraging words when I swap out the coaster mini album,and I am surrounded by 200 albums. The only reason I host is so I can get to know wonderful people like you !!

johnson_marji 02-12-2007 01:00 PM

Wow! Thank you all so much! I am truly flattered. You all are the best~

Many thanks~
