Comment: So adorable! I really admire all the cool things you can make with paper tools. I love haunted houses so this was really awesome. THanks for the extra dex bases. This was the first dex swap I have done. (and the first Ihave ever made) I look forward to doing more so the bases will be useful.
Response: Happy to hear you can use them. They are lots of fun to make🤗
Comment: Your ATC couldn't have been more perfect. A blend of Halloween AND coffee? Count me in! =D The card you wrote in is really cool too, I've never seen anything like that here in the UK. Thank you so much x
Comment: Oh how fun! A wedding on Halloween! How exciting! I will be thinking of you and your daughter on this very special occasion! I would love to see pictures.......Thanks for the diecuts.....Have a great day and happy swapping....
Comment: This was such a thoughtful, beautifully handcrafted swap. I love everything you sent especially the paper embellishments that you made. I kept squealing with delight ! Thank you so so much !!!
Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a great comment. I’m super happy that you liked the embellishments. I had fun making them💖
Comment: Mindy, these tags are so stinking cute!!! I can tell you can draw really well (unlike me!). I'm making an "ongoing" Halloween Journal" and I'm going to add them into it as journaling cards! Thank you so much!!!
Response: Not sure why you are rating me a one. If you go to “view participants” it clearly shows I mailed it in June 15. You are just rating me now? It’s been over 6 weeks and you never messaged me that you did not receive it so I would have the opportunity to resend. Also, my other partner received the tags I sent her.
Comment: My grand daughter Ellie (9) and I enjoyed so much opening your package and examining all the cool and sparkley embellishments. You are a detailed artist. Layers and little surprises, you inspire me to to take a little more time with my own. We especially like the m&m. Thanks they are awesom !
Response: Thank you for the sweet compliment. I am thrilled that you and your granddaughter liked them.
Comment: Thank you I love her. She is beautiful. PERFECT SWAP. I guess I would be a tom boy-lady. Even my bike has bling bling on it. Don't mind getting dirty but still have my make up on. LOL. thank you again.
Comment: HI Mindy, thanks for the great decorated paper clips, I especially like the ones that have quotes :-). Let me know if you'd be interested in a private swap. You can find me on INstagram too. It's always nice to meet a child of the 80's. Long live leg warmers :-D
Response: I am totally up for a private swap. I just followed you back on Instagram. Figure out what paper crafts you’d like to swap and message me on IG.
Comment: Hi Mindy. Thanks for the ATC. I like the shaker that you made in it. I too, enjoy watching the birds. My husband made a large open bird feeder that is on a long post. It is nice to try and figure out the identity of the birds. We live in Florida so we get a lot of different type than up north. Unfortunately, sometimes the squirrels make it up but usually, they eat what has fallen to the ground. Keep safe and healthy.
Comment: Thank you for the cool ATC. I love that you made a mini shaker! DAJ's are "Deconstructed Art Journals". You can see some sample on my IG page or on google. There is also a FB group I'm in. PM me for more info. Hugs, D
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful butterfly PL and the kind note. Yup, my job has completely changed...I'm no longer able to teach at the community college so am doing some online teaching for teens/tweens through Outschool. Thanks so much again for the PL!
Comment: WOW!!! I am impressed with how many Halloween dies you have! Thank you so much for the very generous package of die cuts. I love all of them! I don't have any of these - I especially love the Grim Reaper and the zombie hands. Thanks for joining this swap and for such a great package!
Response: I’m super happy you liked them. Thanks for hosting.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! And its sentiments--in the spring semester, I teach a class of freshman seminar for people who failed it the first time. It's basically a class in second chances! So far, it's been super positive this year, and that always helps out a lot.
Comment: Thank you for sharing a beautiful Christmas card with me this season! I really enjoy your poinsettia notecard and the large die cut will definitely be a pleasure to use in my papercraft! Have a very merry christmas 🎁🎄
Comment: Hi Mindy! Thank you for the gift tags and very cute decorated envelope. If you lived closer you would definitely have to come to one of my craft parties. I do have Netflix and that is where I watch most of my documentaries, they do have some great ones there. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Comment: Thanks for the card and the bookmarks. I have done one pocket letter, but then I moved and all my stuff for making ATCs are not as handy as they used to be. Need to get organized--a New Years resolution?
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun ATCs! I put them up on my wall for Christmas. And yes, I saw the Mr. Rogers movie right when it came out and loved it—I would definitely recommend it! Thanks again and hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the very cool card. The page corner is great. I have used Versamark ink, but just for heat embossing an image. I’ve been meaning to try a light gray ink or even a second stamping to get light image to color in. Merry Christmas!
Comment: This was a fun swap. Thanks for the wonderful snowflakes ATC. We are expecting snow/ice tonight here in southern Illinois. Family Christmas party today, should feel like Christmas with family and the coming snow!! Merry Christmas to you!!
Comment: Love the card! Love your message.Thank you for sweet bookmark. Have a lovely holiday. Your printing is beautiful.NH! you are a neighbor. I used to live in Ashuelot. Southern NH near southern VT.
Comment: Thank you Mindy for the cute snowman card & recipe card. They will come in handy. The Fibromyalgia isn't the worst for me. It's the M.S. that is. But together both are more pain than I can take. But I trudge on and don't complain. Crocheting for me anymore is a chore. My hands are about whooped. But happy to know you're enjoying the corner to corner crochet. I have done that. But been a long time. Happy Holidays!
Comment: Thanks for the card and the 5 tags. The envie was completely open and in a plastic envie from the PO. I do hope that no tags were lost. I really like the ones that survived the trip here! Happy Christmas and New Year to you....
Response: I’m so sorry to hear that! Did you at least get 5? If not, I’d be happy to send more💖
Comment: What a novel idea for a Christmas card! I loved it, thankyou. I think if you really like making ATCs, you should give card making a go - they're really just bigger versions of the same thing! Merry Christmas and Happy Swapping! Tracy
Comment: Very cute snowman card. In answer to your question about my collages-I do them in an 81/2 by 11 sketch book note book and just work on them till its full and then go on to another notebook. Thanks also for the recipes card.
Comment: Hi Mindy! Thank you for the adorable card. Sadly, no Christmas decor up this year. Between work and naughty cats, I’ll have to give it a pass. I love to hear about everyone’s through here though 😀🎄Merry Christmas
Response: My daughter, has had her tree up for over week now and the cat hasn’t tried to climb it! She hasn’t been able to have one for the last 4 years because it used to attack it😋
Comment: I have a cute box I put them in, then I use them for PC's next year. Thanks for joining my swaps! I always look forward to doing the Christmas swaps, and I love having you as a partner, because you do such a wonderful job with my name, I cut it out and put it in my junk journal! So thank you for doing that! I haven't had my last name for very long, as I recently changed it, as my kids are long gone and married, and it was time to get rid of my married name, since I didn't like that name, so I changed it, and needless to say, I didn't have much of anything with my last name on it, since I had my married name for 32 years! So I cherish anything I receive with my new last name on it. My name is the name I had when I was born. I was adopted by my step-dad, and he didn't treat me very well, and I never liked that name very well either. SO THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Response: I like that you use them in Junk Journals! I’ve been making Junk Journals for a few years. Check out my YouTube channel (Mindy Langevin) for some flip throughs. I did the opposite after I got divorced, I took my step dad’s last name back because I am not close to my biological Dad.
Comment: Happy Christmas Mindy! Thank you for yet another cute Santa PC, that I love! Like you, I love sending and receiving Christmas PC's and cards! I always make sure to try to join all I can of Christmas PC's and cards.
Response: Lol, I spend a small fortune on stamps every Christmas season but it’s worth it🎄
Comment: Hey, thank you for your package, it's wrapped so nicely! I'm so excited!! I can't wait to open it--don't worry, I won't open it early!! And thank you for being such an excellent and understanding coordinator. I hope your holidays are wonderful and their joy carries you through 2020 and beyond! Lots of love.
Comment: Cute postcard! Yes, I like to be busy too. I plan to work at least another 6 years. My husband says he is never retiring, so I guess we will work forever. He HAS to have a routine, and he is lucky to have a job he loves.
Comment: Hi Mindy, Thanks for the card and I hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend as well!
I've tried corner to corner crochet only recently. I made a sweet baby blanket, though I don't have any baby in the family or neighborhood to give it to, and a few scarves! I haven't tried making a character or a design with it but they look cool!
Comment: Hi Mindy, thank you very much for your nice card and the little tag inside !
Fun to see how much we have in common. I've been watching some of your videos (Christmas Junk Journal), very inspiring, thank you for sharing.
Wishing you a lovely Christmas with your family.
Comment: Thank you so much,you put a lot of time in this pretty flipbook.Love how you made all the flips an all the nice things you added in.You gave me some great ideas for the next one I make.Give you more hearts if I could!!You have great creating skills.
Response: Thank you for the sweet compliment. Happy Thanksgiving 💖
Comment: (⊃｡•́‿•̀｡)⊃━☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ Hi again Mindy. Thank you for the very cool Christmas card. I love little ink stamped Christmas chick on the front of the envelope! ADORABLE! The stitched Christmas memo sheets are VERY cool! Blessings to your and your family. 💖❥💞❦💕❧💗♡💓♥️❤️❤💘ღ💝❣💘💚💟💙💜💛 εїз Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ ❤ ƸӜƷ εїз xoxo Lora
Comment: Absolutely gorgeous pocket letter! and I LOVE how you made little pocket envelopes to hold the stickers and goodies! ~ I'm gonna have to try that :) Thank you so much 💖🎄

Comment: I'm gonna go on and rate you now, but saving your pretty envie to open a little closer to Xmas! Thank you for the card and may the holiday season bring only happiness and joy to you and your loved ones.
Comment: Hi Mindy. Beautiful Christmas Card. Reminds me of Christmas in Concord, MA. The house looks just like a house you would find there. Thank you for the Holiday PC too! I have such a hard time finding those! Merry Christmas!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Comment: Mindy I loved your Xmas card and everything you said on it! Lol you’re funny about the strict diet! I’m used to it by now! Wish you’d live closer to knock down some margaritas I bet you’re fun!
Comment: The huge Christmas light bulb made me smile, thanks. The envelope makes me wonder what's inside? Guess I must wait till advent. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. Updated 12-15. Opened this morning. Very pleasing items inside. Thank you. You asked how I decorate? I also have houses upon my cabinets in the kitchen all lit up, but no where near your 150 collection. Wow girl, where can you place them all? I decorate every inch of my home. My Mom always did and I do, now my older kids LOVE to decorate as well. What I miss the most, is that glass fiber fake snow. Yes, it itched but made the perfect setting when tiny lights were put in. So Magical. Have a great Christmas.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful bookmark you made me! I love it! I love the Old Saint Nick style..The card is cute! The snowflake reminds me of us in south Georgia will get in the mid 30's tonight!! brrrr
Comment: Thank you! Updated rating...Not only do I love the Christmas card you chose, but I adore the tags! Woo Hoo!! Many thanks. Update now that I've opened the envelope: Yowza! I love it all, the Christmas tags, the notecards, the bookmark and the postcards! I know we've swapped before but you continue to amaze me with your generosity. Thanks ever so much! Big smiles here in NC because of your thoughtfulness.
Comment: It arrived and I placed it into my "santa mailbox" until Advent. Thank-you. Can you believe just 7 1/2 weeks till Christmas? Updated 12-3... what a nice variety of items. Did you sew those note papers? if you did, I just may "steal" that idea. Its perfect! Thank-you
Comment: I love my pocket letter!! It’s so cute. Yes I am a goth skull girl but I love the sweet Halloween too! You should get a snake lol I know you are scared but they are the most loving animals ever, one of mine even cuddles with my dog. Thank you for sharing your creativity. Made my day getting it today🖤🖤🖤
Comment: Thank you for the great tombstone ATC. I love Halloween. Have a great time at Disney. We probably won't go until 2021. I can't wait! We have been waiting for Rise of the Resistance to open. We are going to Sturgis next year for the 80th motorcycle rally. This will be our 11th year to go. It is so much fun, we love the Black hills
Comment: Once again, you have outdone yourself... I think the Halloween Index Card is so cute!! You got a little bit of everything Halloween on it. Love the cheesecloth (?) touch... very mummy-ish! THANK YOU! I hope that if you get me for a partner one day that I can create something half as well for you. :-)
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Comment: Mindy... What a lovely envie of Coffee items! I love them :-) <3. I will definitely use the bookmark right away! I was thinking the chunky charm-so adorable!- would be nice on a journal. I might frame the pc and put it in my kitchen... I love it! So very glad you averted the paperclip tragedy :-) I would never have thought about the coffee sleeves. You are very clever! Thanks also for the journal cards... AGAIN.. Superfantastic Envie! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: Best compliment ever! I’m so glad you liked everything.
Comment: Hi Mindy, Thanks very much for the autumn themed mini PL and extra goodies. I love how you matted the ATCs. It's all very cute😊 My old beagle, Sadie, has grown up with cats and has always been really good with them. I don't think she knows she's a dog...she and Trixie, one of my old kitties, are best friends. I like a variety of paper crafts...journal making, decoupage, stamping, painting, die cuts...all if it. I like to sew fabric onto paper projects. I have a crafty pen pal and we just finished a junk journal made from a Little Golden Book. Recently I have been playing around with wax seals and fountain pens. There is always a new technique, material, tool, or project that keeps me in the learning mode. Happy Fall!
Comment: Hi Mindy! I enjoyed your card and your note... It sounds wonderfully chilly there in NH. Here in TX we've been in the 90s but today it cooled down due to rain (tropical storm Imelda) and the high was only 82! Thanks for the Christmas card and best wishes!
Comment: Thank you for the super cute envelope, it totally made my day! Plus your answers were so interesting to read and you have such lovely handwriting haha! I would totally love to know your vegan sushi recipe, it sounds super good!! xx have a nice day
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Christmas Washi Tape Magnets!!! I love how you decorated them! They would make special little gifts to go with Christmas cards.
Yes, I am too young for knee replacements. The only thing I can think is I've worked on hard concrete floors since my 20's, which is not good for your knees. And it must be in my genes too. That combo spelled doom for me! I am recovering, slowly but surely! I'm ready for it all to be "done"!
Comment: Thanks for the Christmas card; hope you had a good holiday! (I think this card must have fallen out of a sorting box or something for it to have taken so long 😂. But I’m glad it made its way to me,)
Comment: Thank you so much! You asked what I am looking most forward to - such a difficult question for me to answer, since I have no living family to spend the holiday with. However, I am quite fortunate enough to be spending it with some newish friends. I appreciate the invite, and plan to have fun!
Comment: Thank you so much for the blue and silver ornaments card and surprises. I am making Christmas trees with my cards and putting them on my walls at work. Everyone loves them. Can't wait to add yours!
Comment: Merry Christmas Mindy! Thank you for so pretty card, the crossword puzzle ( been a long time since I've done one) and for telling me about your Christmas tradition. Love all! We really don't have much of a Christmas tradition in my family. The only thing we do every year after gift opening & eating dinner, is play this card game called Hand & Foot. Is a lot of fun!
Comment: Thank you for such a fun swap! I loved hearing about your your holiday traditions. We are just starting the Ornament tradition this year since we got a second tree in our house and one tree will be nothing but the whimsical ornaments. I love hearing about all the fun things you do with your kids still even though they are adults now. I don't have any children of my own but hoping to do similar things with my niece. We do the cookie swap thing too and we do a contest for the best cookies but we are stuck with the same problem, way too many cookies. Actually it's kind of funny how similar our traditions are.. cookie swaps, christmas brunches, game nights. But the thing that stuck out most to me was the wrapping paper sales after christmas - I do the same exact thing! Thank you for sharing such a fun and amusing list with me. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday with lots of love and laughter! I hope the New Year brings your lots of happiness and great things!
Comment: Thanks for the nice card and I love the envelope that you decorated. We are enjoying the season. My favorite part would have to be about the same as you. With 8 grandchildren, it's great to see their excitement. Thank you so much for the card, envelope and nice note!
Comment: Mindy, this is so beautiful! If I had a present wrapped like this, I don't think I could open it! Too pretty! Thank you so much for this super beautiful Christmas ATC! Also, the envelope is awesome! The boots - so cool - and you have the BEST Christmas washi tape! Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you for the cute Christmas card and goodies!!! I hope you and your love ones have a very Merry Christmas!!!
I hope your Thanksgiving went well!!! I know you loved having everyone together!!!
My daughter was able to fly in for one day at Thanksgiving and back to school. Final exams started the next week. Fingers crossed she will be home for Christmas by the 20th !
Comment: Holiday greetings Mindy,
Thank you for the Christmas card & snowflakes. FYI the wooden snowflake broke into 3 different pieces. I was able to glue it back together. Just letting you know for future mailings. You decorated your envie so pretty too!
Comment: Mindy, thank you for the Christmas card and nice note. I gave up on presents when I moved to NC. It cost to much to ship. I now send checks and let the mothers do the shopping for the children. Shirley
Comment: Lovely cardinal Christmas card! I love watching the cardinals chitter and chatter outside our windows! Thank you for reading my profile. Paper crafting is such a stress reliever and enjoyment for me, too. I love making junk journals (sometimes, I make way more than I can use, lol). I have been journaling in travelers notebook junk journals over the last few months...although I guess it’s more memory keeping than journaling but such a joy to see a completed journal! Good luck with your craft fairs...I know they can be very exhausting! ❤️
Comment: Wow, wow, wow!!!!! Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing Christmas Altered Bag Swap! I am blown away by your beautiful junk journal you included and all the goodies. It was an awesome treat to come home to after our Thanksgiving holiday. Have a great holiday season!!
Comment: Hi Mindy. If my son had been born a girl, he would have been named Mindy. Yes, it is hard when it is their time to go. I had a Yorkie for 13 years, also I have listened to Female Criminals. I think I have all of them listened to. They do such a good job. Love them all. I have such a picture in my head of what everyone should look like that I feel like I will be so disappointed if I should ever see them in real life. lol.
Love your handwriting and Love how you decorated the envie! Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Glorious New Year!
Comment: Thank you for the Christmas Card. The trees look whimsical to me and I think they are just so cute. Thank you for the recipe card, so Christmasy. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Comment: Hi thank you so much for this! I really appreciated knowing when to look out for my special package. I have only briefly looked through it, but this journal was the highlight of a challenging week! I am currently student teaching for English as a New Language, formerly ESL. Also thanks for the podcast recommendations; I commute a lot and I love listening to podcasts and audiobooks, so I can be entertained and learn new thing while I drive.. All the best! :)
Comment: Hello, Mindy! I'm so sorry to be rating you so late. School is now back in full swing for me, and as normal, I tend to put my letters aside for some time while I adjust to my schedule. I wanted to thank you for the very thoughtful letter you've written! I found it so interesting and fun to read. I enjoyed reading about your Christmas decorations & traditions, as well as your wonderful family! You seem to cherish every moment spent with your children, which I think is very beautiful and irreplaceable. I hope this new year will be a blessing to you and your family! Happy swapping!! :)
Comment: (((Mindy!!!))) I received your pocket letter today and it is absolutely gorgeous!! Oh my gosh! I love how each card spelled out Christmas, the front AND back are amazing and the goodies...I LOVE IT ALL! If I had to pick a fav it would be the adorable felt polar bear sticker - I've never seen one and it's precious. :) Thank you so much again. HUGE smile and great swap
Comment: Thank you for the cards. I've got most of my Christmas things packed away already. We're having such a cold spell that I don't want to leave the house. The HIGH temp today was below zero !!! Thanks again.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute Santa Dog card!! My favorite Christmas tradition is watching â€œItâ€™s A Wonderful Lifeâ€ on Christmas Eve and we do new pajamas every year as well! Merry Christmas!
Comment: The ornament was too completely adorable! I love it! My son rushed right to his "mini stocking tree" to put it on since he feels "Santa" would like to see himself on Christmas Eve looking so cute (yes Santa is still well and kick in our home *hehe*). Thank you so much for sharing your holiday with us. From our family to yours a happiest Christmas and festive New Year!
Response: I miss â€œSantaâ€ most at Christmas. My kids are 18 and up and no grandkids yetðŸŽ„ Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for your envie ful. I didn't see a note in it. I hope this is the right person:-)
Response: Oooops, sorry for the confusion. My profile name is the same as my real name so I figured as long as it was on the outside envie it would be easy. Iâ€™ll make sure I put it in the envie for future swaps. Thank you, Merry ChristmasðŸŽ„
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. I enjoyed reading your do's & dont's list. I am guilty of one of your dont's..."Don't wait until the last minute to wrap your presents." I'm always behind on that & pledge to get my act together every year. Have a happy holiday!!
Comment: Wow! Thank you love the selection! You ask my favorite if I have to choose Iâ€™d pick Merry and Bright with Snoopy and Woodstock on it! Who doesnâ€™t just love Snoopy and Woodstock! Perfect â¤ï¸ Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful flip book! Iâ€™m still learning how to make them so yours is teaching me even more for possibilitiesâ¤ï¸ I love it!!! Iâ€™m going to use it as you suggest... Iâ€™ll add memories to the note papers and tuck in my own mementos from the holidays. I have 4 kids too. One son, three daughters. They all live nearby. Happy Holidays to you!
Response: Thank you for the sweet comment. Iâ€™m so happy you liked itðŸ˜ƒðŸ’•
Comment: I know I did this the other day. I don't understand why when you hit "save", it sometimes doesn't save! I've had this happen before. I try going in and checking periodically but I haven't been on here for a couple of days.
Comment: OMG! I love this swap! I received it today, and you are really talented, I love love it! my kids and granddaughters loved looking through it, Thanks so much for a beautiful swap! it is my most treasured swap.Thank You!!! so very much!
Response: Thank you for the sweet compliment! It was lots of fun to make!
Comment: This is the first book I have received from Swap bot It is beautiful! I just love it I haven't
even started mine yet I have ben working on a secret garden it is so pretty I hate to write in it and you gave me so many good ideas Thank You again Hugs Sheryl-Kay
Comment: Hi Mindy Thanks so much for the candle Christmas ornament - it is really cute and will look great on my tree. I also really liked the hot drink holder - what a great idea. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: Hi Mindy, I got your book today & it was beautiful!! I really loved it , Thank you for all the detail & work that you put into it. It will be treasured here. Thanks for a wonderful swap & Happy Swapping until we swap again. Hugs
Response: I'm glad it arrived safely! I was worried if the little bird and birdhouse on the cover would dislodge during the journey. Always happy to swap with you!
Comment: Thank you so much for your "smelly" Pocket Letter!
I had to google for some names (Starbucks is welknown) but Dunkin' Donuts didn't ring a bell. They tried to have shops in the Netherlands 16 years ago, but it wasn't successful. Now they are trying it again, starting in Amsterdam.
And I found Maxwell House coffee in foreign webshops, so really unknown over here!
Response: Lol! I'm so glad it arrived safely. I told you it was going to smell like coffee! ðŸ˜€ I can't imagine a life without Dunkin Donuts coffee!
Comment: Mindy!! It's gorgeous!! I absolutely love this tag! Thank you so much for taking the time to make something that you knew I would love. I'm not sure if it's going on the poster just yet... right now it's on my jewelry box where I can admire it. I can't imagine anything greater than this beautiful, peace loving owl! You made my week!! xoxo Patty
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful pocket letter. I love all the images, lace, and pearls. It really is lovely. You even sent me Gorjuss Girl stamped images! And the perfume paperclip. Darling! â¤â¤ I also love making junk journals and I want to try a flip book. I have a couple on my watch list. Take care.
Comment: Thanks so much for the sweet pocket letter -- I love snowmen. You did a nice mixture of techniques. The silver accordion circle on the center ATC is very cool. Your job sounds interesting; I enjoy being around the elderly. It sounds like you are doing a great service for them. Thanks for all the fun little goodies -- esp. the plaid moose! LOL <3<3<3
Comment: WOW! Thanks so much! I did notice that one of these ATC is made from a card that I sent you! Cool! Ive wanted to somehow make that into a swap but have been having a hard time figuring out the rules. Thanks so much! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thanks for such a well made ATC. I love it. I have been apprehensive about pocket letters. It seems like something I'd like to do, but I just haven't gone there yet. Maybe I'll play around with them and see what comes of it.
Comment: I love the vintage style Christmas cards -- I remember the ones similar to this one from my childhood. I loved your message - thank you so much. Have a wonderful Christmas and hope to see you in lots of swaps in 2016 ~~
Comment: Your Christmas zine is great! Though it is not a minizine, it is evident that you worked hard on it to make it truly festive. Therefore, it still deserves a 5+heart. I especially love the cover.
**I received your minizine on Christmas Eve and it's absolutely lovely.
Response: Thank you for the kind words. I did send you a redo of a minizine, you should get it I soon. Merry Christmas!ðŸŽ„
Comment: I really really was sure that I had rated for at least three of these swaps and lo and behold the ratings have disapeared! Do you remember having been rated already for this one? Anywho, I will come back and tell you how much I love the ATC when I open it on Christmas day! Thanks for joining the swap friend!
Merry Christmas! awww, cute mitten atc!
Response: No, this is the first time you rated me for this swap. I keep track, if I haven't been rated within 2 weeks I usually message the person to see if they got it.
Comment: Oh my gosh! What a beautiful pocket letter you made. It is the best Christmas one I have ever received. It was so much fun opening the envelopes to see what surprise was hiding inside. You did an amazing job. I really appreciate the attention to detail. You are very talented. Thank you so much! Merry Christmas ðŸŽ„
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. I really enjoy making them. I'm so happy you liked it. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the great pocket letter and all the fun goodies. We too have a similar event here called Treefest..it's beautiful however the trees are donated to needy families. I bet yours is just a beautiful. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!!
Comment: Hello Mindy,
Thank you for your creative Pocket Letter you designed for me. I liked how you used rubber stamped images and die cuts to design your ATCs. I also liked how you used coin envelopes to hold the goodies. Your Pocket Letter will be a great addition to my Pocket Letter Collection.
Response: Thank you for the kind comments! You made my day! ðŸ’™
Comment: I love receiving from you! The winter solstice atc is just wonderful. I love the shading of the background, perfect grey winter sky. I love the tree and of course the sparkle does look just like snow... it's kind of stormy looking and I love it... thank you so much!
Response: You are such a sweetheart to say that! I was happy with how it came out so it makes me even happier that you like it! ðŸ’™
Comment: I forgot to push send....rrrrrgh so sorry.i picked up all my cards and wanted to check before I archived thenisawyour rating sitting in he box.
I love the card and wilI display it w others on my table by the door. I think the raccoon and little cub are adorable. Thanks so much.
Response: I was getting worried that you didn't get it. Thanks for the rating. Happy holidays!
Comment: Mindy, Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas postcard!I loved hearing about how you collect and show your cards so much that i want to send you one from my collection too! Please message me your address :)
Comment: Wasn't this swap so much fun? I love your PL and and excited to open each pocket when the time comes, unless I break down and bust into them all at once! I hope your family has a lovely holiday season.
Comment: UPDATE- 12/27- Mindy! Thank you so much for the great PL! I enjoyed opening it. In the days leading up to my surgery on the 17th, it gave me a little bit of sunshine in my moodiness! ----- Thank you for the Pocket Letter! I can't wait to open the pockets! Sorry for the late rate!
Comment: Thanks for the cute card. Unfortunately, it was torn at the seem and barely holding together, but I won't rate you down for that. I just taped it up. Have a nice Thanksgiving.
Response: Wow, sorry to hear that. ðŸ˜Ÿ It was fine when I put it in the envelope and the others have made it fine so far. It must have gotten damaged along the route. Was the flat ornament still in it?
Comment: Beautiful vintage pocket letters set with gifties in the backs!!! I'll be taking the snowmen out to use in my Celebration of Mandy's life collection this holiday and winter season! thank you so much!
Response: I'm glad you liked it and I feel honored to have my ATCs included in your tribute to your daughter. ðŸ’–
Comment: Cute! Thanks for the ATCs! The Christmas one is super cool! One thing that I do when making ATC is to make sure to use more than one media - if mostly paper - using paint and something chunky! Anywho, happy swapping friend!
Response: I just started making ATCs in October so I'm still learning. Thanks for the tip! ðŸ˜€
Comment: nice pocket letter with a lot work and effort into each pocket! Like the looks of working with your cricut... I have the other kind of die cutting machine... you know the one with the handle that you crank by hand! I love it though!
Response: Lol, yes, I have a Sizzix too and I make a lot of ATCs with it! I have way too many dies to retire it! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hello! Thanks for the adorable ATC! Psssttttt... you're lucky my mailman didnt catch the postage on this letter. Had a postage due envelope just friday with 22 cents due because square cards mail at 71! Take that USPS! Snuck one by ya! :)
Response: I didn't know that! Thanks for telling me! I just bought a bunch of those cards! Glad you liked the ATC.
Comment: Thanks for the nice pocket letter. I really liked what you did. I do appreciate all the time you put into it. Unfortunately I didn't like the goodies so I couldn't give you a heart. I'm sorry!
Comment: OMG you did some work on this one, wow I love it, I am just blow away with all the work you did on this card,, it shall reign forever in my collection book as one of the most detailed atc's ever,,Thank you and you should do another one you are so good at it,,,I cant see good now but I would go completely blind trying to do this one

Comment: Mindy, we seem to be getting one another in a lot of swaps lately. Yes, I agree with you, the Christmas swaps are starting really early this year. Last year I sent and received over 300 cards from all over the world. It was great. Thank you for the "Holiday" Christmas card. Shirley
Comment: AHHHH I know what you mean about Harry Potter!! If it comes on TV when I'm flipping through the channels it's like I'm hypnotized and I sit down and watch the entire thing and completely forget what I was doing!! Cheers!
Comment: i got your resend today! but no original swap yet!! thenk you for the cute decoration hehe
Response: That is so frustrating.....I worked so hard on the first one. I wonder where it went? If you ever get the package, let me know please. I guess I will have to send flat mail only for International swaps from now on. Thank you for the rating. ðŸŽ„
Comment: I just realized that I forgot to put a list under the swap(I'm sorry), but that said, you didn't need one as you did a great job.
Thank you so much for such a fantastic package. I loved everything. You put so much thought and effort into everything. And thank you for thinking of Gratian. He was so sick and it was a nice little surprise for him. =) Many hearts to you. I hope to partner with you again. Happy swapping.
Response: You're very welcome! It was fun putting it together. Hope Gratian is feeling better! ðŸ˜€
Comment: I would give you a heart for all three bookmarks. Thank you very much.I never did catch the Harry Potter "bug". I saw the first movie and liked it. My friend thinks I am nuts. She has all the books and has seen all the movies many times. I am 54 and she is 49. lol I love ghosts, cats, flowers and birds and the bookmarks you did are WONDERFUL. Thank you for sharing your talent. Oh and I save the little girl from the envelope and I will make her into a bookmark. again, thank you and make that 4 hearts total ;)
Response: Glad you liked them! Feel free to pass on the Harry Potter bookmark to your friend if you think she'd like it. Happy swapping!

Comment: This ATC is amazing and I hope you know I feel my ATCs are quite inadequate in comparison lol, I love the depth with the card and the tiny book that you can actually move the pages is just phenomenal. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I had fun making it. I'm new to ATC art but I think I found my new addiction! Happy swapping!

Comment: I never received anything, please contact me
Response: Really? I sent you a message on Dec 9 asking if you had gotten it yet and it shows that you read it but you never responded to me. Here is a copy of the message "Just wondering if you got my ornament for Handmade Christmas Ornament? I sent it on 11/17." I always message members if they don't rate me to make sure they got my swap. Regardless, I will resend tomorrow. It is also good etiquette to contact your sending partner before rating them poorly.
Comment: WOW!!! I wish I could give you five big hearts! Four absolutely adorable ornaments! My tree is going to look fabulous this year! Thank you for all the effort you put into creating four very separate ornaments, showcasing four different crafting styles. Happy swapping.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty squares! They will really pop with the black border. I have enough to make an afghan now. It is next on my list to do after I finish the ripple laprobe I'm working on. And thank you for joining the swap! February's is up and running, I hope to see you in it.
Response: Glad you liked it! I will absolutely be joining the Feb swap. I find crocheting very relaxing.
Comment: You are too sweet! My pup took off with a few of her new treats. :) She loves them! :) Your Dotee doll is super cute! I love the detailing on the stitches! :) I'd give you extra hearts if I could. :) Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad your puppy liked the treats! That was my first Dotee Doll! It was fun to make!
Comment: Thank you so much! I loved them all. Wish I could give you a bunch of hearts.
Response: So glad you liked them! I bought a shuttle and thread and I'm trying to learn tatting all because I love the tatted ornament you sent me for the red, green and white swap. I'm learning through you tube videos. Too bad you didn't live close so you could teach me!

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful card...I plan to use the red metallic card is so cool too and I plan to find a fun use for it as well.Good luck with your sewing, would love to see the quilt blocks, and happy holidays to you!
Comment: Mindy, thank you for the Christmas card and extra. Shirley Mindy, somewhere in between messages and the postman the first one arrived. Forgive me for not picking this up and messaging you but I received quite a few cards this year and at my age I don't remember everything now. Thank you for the second glitter card arrived 12/18. You deserve more than one heart for doing this. I wonder if it because it is close to Christmas that the Christmas card arrived so late. I mailed a package yesterday and the postman said it wouldn't get delivered until after Christmas. Shirley
Comment: Hi Mindy! Thank you for the BEAUTIFUL glittery sled holiday card and thank you doubly for the sweet little enclosure card AND the fact that you took the time to write such a special message. Wow. . . I'm really touched. I'm bummed about SOA too. One (or two?) episodes left. Have a lovely holiday!
Comment: Sorry for the delay in rating, very hectic here lately. Cleaning off my desk today and found the re-send ornament. Thank you, I really like it, very pretty and so different! **12/6** I received the first send today.
Response: Phew! I was stressing! Lol. Bummed the first one got lost but I'm glad the the 2nd arrived safely. â„ï¸
Comment: Thanks so much! I like to crochet as well but sometimes the instructions are a little confusing to me. I did a lot of cross stitch but my eyes aren't crazy about it.:) Got your second card today. Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Christmas card & recipe for the Chex mix. It will be going into my Christmas art journal. Have you tried the sugar and spice snack mix? This is the one I make: http://www.chex.com/recipes/Sugar%20and%20Spice%20Snack/1B7EF554-986E-4FD5-B261-230FDA2A8891
Comment: Wonderful Christmas Stocking! I love that it is Personal! I will save the gift for mid December ~ that's when I start peeking!
Response: I'm glad you like it. I started crocheting it as soon as I signed up for the swap. I was just waiting for your name so I could add it before I sent it and get you something from your profile. Merry Christmas!
Comment: It's amazing how all your cards are getting to everyone without stamps! Love the card and the personal message. I am so behind on AHS and need to get caught up but it is really getting creepy this season! Hope you have an amazing Holiday,
Response: Lol, this is definitely one for the books! Too funny.
Comment: Thanks for the Christmas card and nice personal note :) We got a kick out of trying to figure out how it was delivered without any sign of postage, maybe Santa had something to do with it! Thanks again and enjoy the holidays!
Response: It looks like I forgot to add the postage to the cards I sent for this swap but people are getting them! It's a Christmas miracle!
