Comment: Hi Tjs! What a fun chunk and now I want Popeyes chicken! Might have to have the kid stop there on the way home from work one day this week! LOL! I feel like I have been cooking way too much but trying to support local places by eating out once a week - sigh, yes, very crazy times! Please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Scrapping their lives is no easy feat! Congratulations! I decided to digital Scrapbooking when my first born was young and haven't done much since. I have an entire external drive FULL of elements!
Response: Lol right!!! I buy crap like I'm scrapbooking my WHOLE family's life. Not!! I'm just a hoarder!! Keep healthy!!
Comment: Thank you for all my trashy tidbits. I like the clever way you packed it so I could pull everything out with a little tug of the muslin. I also loved the way you covered the mailing tube. Thanks again.♥️
Comment: What a beautiful start to your pc. Thank you. My room is the same way. I plan to tackle it in the next two weeks. Not looking forward to cleaning it but totally looking forward to it being organized again. Good luck to you.
Comment: You totally got it right! Thanks so much for the crafting goodies, I love stickles and washi! And oh my, the ephemera is wonderful...very nice! And could I just say that I'm drooling over the beach theme postage stamps?!!? Thank you most of all for the handmade tags...I would say that we have similar styles.
Again, thanks for everything and Merry Christmas to you 🌲🌲🎅🌲🌲
Comment: Squeal!! Absolutely love what you created for me!! Love the case as well! Thank you so much!! I also look forward to seeing the puzzle completed but also sad because that would mean it was over! Such a fun and creative series!
Comment: I LOVE how each card is from a different deck and each has its own theme. Even the one with the funny stamp is awesome. I really love how you added the 'oy' to the 'J' on the jack card. Thank you so much!
Comment: Your "chunk" must have taken the long way here. It just arrived a few days ago even though it is postmarked 26 Sept 2019. Maybe it wanted to return to Singapore. 😋 Thanks for sharing it wirh me!
Comment: Yowza Batgirl, you've knocked my socks off! The #14 flowers on the mailing envelope were SO clever. Woo Hoo. And then each individual envelope is better than the next. Love them all but especially #18 with all the different papers added to the pretty paper bag.
Comment: Loved the paper you used on the mailing envelope. Spotted the #14 right away. Woo Hoo!! Thanks for all the different sized envelopes and for all the extras with the #14 stamped on them too. You're a real peach!!

I hope to swap again.

Comment: Loved your Altered playing card! Very unique. Thank you! And I agree with you on the weather. Ugh! We haven’t reached 100 here yet but it won’t be long.

Comment: Oops! My note on your letter for this swap says I rated you on 4-28-19! Obviously, I forgot to hit the save bar!! I am sorry! I love your three tags! And always enjoy reading your letters! Thank you!

Comment: Thank you for the swap. That is terrible the mail is so goofed up. I love the little envelopes, the moo the twinchie and the Rinchie thanks for swapping.

Response: Haha! No problem! I'm just glad it arrived!! Thank you for rating & I appreciate the ♡¡

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful envies and the stamps! I love all of it!! I haven't read any Janet Evanovich yet, but I keep hearing great things about the Stephanie Plum series. Thanks for reminding me of it -- I just put the first book on hold at the library. :)
Response: Thank you for rating & the ♡¡ I hope you enjoy the Stephanie Plum series. You'll find yourself lol!! 🤣
Comment: So cute! Thank you so much for the many cute envies! I send out a lot of kawaii sticker flakes, so I'm always in need of little bitty envelopes. And the "sassy fun" girl ones are going in my daughter's scrapbook. She's a sassypants for sure! lol
Comment: I loved every bit of this swap! I love the skinny, and the little bitty envelopes and stamps are perfect! I also love that you sent me a book recommendation. About 8 years ago, I went through a Janet Evanovich phase and I read 1-13 of the Stephanie Plum novels before I moved on to something else. I liked them a lot. I just looked it up and realized there’s like 25 of them! Wowza! Anyway, thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable swap!
Response: Haha! Enjoy the rest of the Stephanie Plum series!! Thank you for the rating & ♡¡ I'm happy you enjoyed the swap! Happiest new year!!
Comment: Okay, you made me LOL with your note...I'm thrilled that you consider me a good artist, but I follow you on Flickr and happen to know that you are fantastic! Thank you so much for the adorable Christmas inchies and moo...they are all wonderful, and I want to tell you something. This is my first Christmas away from every single family member, and I have the blues. All of my "stuff" is in storage in Vancouver, WA and I have no Christmas ornaments here in MI. I have a limited budget at present, so the idea of buying a bunch of generic ornaments doers not appeal. Last year after Christmas, I bought a big, beautiful (fake) wreath for just a few dollars. This year, I've taken it out of the box and strung fairy lights throughout. I'm using all of the Christmas-themed ATCs, inchies, twinchies, and so forth as ornaments! I've punched tiny holes in each with my Cropadile, and I'm using fine jewelry wire to attach the "ornaments" to the wreath. My dear, your inchies and moo are going to be front and center! Thank you for sending me such darling additions to my wreath of Christmas joy!
Response: Ahhhh! You never realize how much you miss family until they're not around. I hope you are all reunited soon! You are very welcome! Glad to be a little part of your Merry! Happy holidays mz. Donetta! Take care of yourself!!!
Comment: Hi from O~hi~O!
Nice postcard from Taco Bell ~ love that they support Texas! Such a beautiful and huge state you live in! Love this kind of swap ~ take care and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Judy
Comment: Hi Loretta :-) . . . . I really DO like your Moos! Especially the lady with the glasses and hat. So cute! And you ARE a good drawer too. Thanks for these fine additions to my new Moo collection. . . . . . . . . So how's Houston? I used to miss Pasadena/Houston, because of memories and the ever present green, but not for a long while since now I'd be loath to return to humidity, bugs, mold, and most Texans including my 2 sisters who still live out there. LOL.
Response: Lol! Thank you! Same ole, same ole in Houston... nothings changed! Still humid, bigger mosquitos & mold!!!🙃 Gotta love it!!!!
Comment: Thank you for the great ATC and many apologies for the late rating. I love all the layers you created, it's a fabulous card for this time of year! The postcards are also welcomed too, thank you for choosing new ones for my collection!
Comment: I love all the magpie collected stuff you sent me! Great stamped images - don't think I have any of those stamps! Love the take-out bag from Ukraine! And I didn't have the capitol postcard from Texas!! And best of all - the crow/raven/blackbird paper clip! Thank you so much!!!
Response: Yaaaay! You are so welcome!! Happy fall!!

Response: Thank you!! Always hoping for the best!! Take care
Comment: Hi Tjs - I agree, where the heck is this year going?? Does school start in your area soon? It starts next Thursday here - my besties granddaughter said no one could use the S word until August! LOL! Kids are such a hoot! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I love this PC 'cause I love candy! I, unfortunately, inherited my "sweet tooth" from my dad! I love Hot Tamales but can only eat a few at a time 'cause they burn my tongue, but that may be a good thing! And it's as hot as Hot Tamales here! Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for the always awesome, creative swap! Love the extras, Is that mini envie a die? I want it! I thought the carousel was a pic at first because it's glossy. Thanks again, always a pleasure to swap with you! ♥
Response: Lol! Glad you figured the "extras" out! Yes it's a mini envie die, tailored expression, Simon says. Thanks for the rating & ♡¡
Comment: I enjoyed reading your answers. We have the same taste in books so that was fun to see. It is so wonderful that you've traveled so many places. I would love to do that. I hear Peru is lovely, so good luck on your trip when you go. :)
Comment: Thank you for the Frida postcard. I have been Geocaching for 14 years and my husband and I say that the best thing we found in our hobby is one another. :) Have a great day - all the best to your kitties too.

Comment: How could I not love the Whimsey Jar you made for me? It is wonderful! AND I don't think you could have put many more items in it at all---and some are really interesting and unusual. I am going to enjoy using everything you included! Thanks for a wonderful swap! I wish we could give more than one star! <3<3<3<3<3<3
Comment: Wow! What a great journal...I love, love, love it!!! Thank you so much! The fold out pages are awesome; I never thought to do something like that.

Comment: Hi tjs, what a great swap inside and out! The envelope will go inside one of my books. No, I don't think your creation is too grungy, it just makes it look even more vintage! Love it and you did a great job on it. Thank you for sharing both your talent and your tradition with your kids. <3 Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and here's to 2018!

Thank you too, for your lovely note in the card. Must be nice to have warm weather. I'd trade our cold for warm any day! Have a Wonderful Christmas !
Comment: This is one of my favorite swaps ever. An all the way based on my profile. From envie and inside with a presentation envie that had it's own profile cover art & such a great note. The SUPERBLY handcrafted hard cover flip book (micro zine x 10) with tabs even & the POSTAL theme is done in a such should be published and sold in a bookstore quality of materials and choice of elements and creative placement on the pages. This had to have taken hours and hours. So glad I did not peek on your FLICK as the experience of holding it my hand and admiring the pages and knowing I get to keep this forever was amazing. I'll be showing to my friends & guests. I am so honored to own this treasure
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

Comment: Hi TJS! Thanks for the fun chunk! Bummer about it heating up there - we have some days in the 90's and that was enough for me - yikes! I really like spring weather - highs in the 80's at most with low humidity! LOL! One can dream, right? LOL! Stay cool! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Crown Royal makes me laugh! My college boyfriend used to like it. He used to keep his dungeons and dragons dice in a Crown Royal bag. Heh...memories (yes, he was a nerd but don't tell him he'd be quite indignant.) Congrats on the grads. Will you be making a craft room in an abandoned bedroom? :)
Comment: Like the bird ATC-very different with lots of details and holes in it! That is something I hadn't seen before but very creative! Love the card you sent it in and the Coke bag is just precious,thanks for thinking of me and being a great swapper!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable bewildered dog card and kind wishes! It reminds me of Charles Schulz's early Peanuts/Snoopy style and reading the comics with my dad on Sunday morning :) Hope you and yours are also well!
Comment: Always a quality swap from you! Thanks so much! Beautiful use of transparency and great extras! Before I opened the envie, I remarked on the little stamped angel boy. What a cute stamp! So happy when the ATC included him! = )

Response: Lol! My bad! I thought I saw the 419 on the WWoftE house!! ðŸ˜‚ Thank you for the funny, rating & heart!! Toodles! Be good!
Comment: I love your tag! I do not feel that it is naked. I think it makes the face stand out even more. Great tag and wonderful extras. Thank you for a wonderful swap. You always make my day! PS: I am in humid southern Illinois this summer where it has been 95 plus everyday with a heat index of 115 to 120! The humidity hangs at 80% everyday. I so wish I was in Florida where it never gets this hot and humid.
Comment: sometimes simple is better than complicated, right. It is still a nice altered mouse trap! Hope you are doing well. We are feeling a bit chaotic and confused by selling, waiting for all the stuff before closing and worrying about something going wrong, finally closing, qualifying for loan on new house and all the paper work for that, finding an apartment with reasonable short lease, moving to apt and most to storage, waiting for house to keep going, meetings with the builder regularly (never have done that b4), and getting puppy used to no backyard to roam free. I can't think of any more! But we're weary but very happy as these home will be beyond what we ever dreamed of. AND we were amazed at what our 23 yr old house was was worth today! That made me wonder if I were dreaming and then it sold in only 2 weeks! Then I knew I must be dreaming!
thanks for the altered trap!
Comment: What a great pile of awesome mail I received today! Your wonderful postcard with window part of it all! Thanks so much, it is a very unique bit of mail art! I appreciate all the effort that went into it...I better go finish mine now..!
Comment: Got your card this morning. I am actually about 9 hours north of Vegas just outside of Reno in Northern Nevada. I hear you about the heat, it is supposed to hit 100 here either today or tomorrow. No humidity, yet!
Response: Augh! Keep kool out there in Vegas! Thank you for rating & appreciate the â™¡Â¡ Happy summer!
Comment: Would you like to know why it took me a little while to rate you? Because I don't think that I really have the words to thank you. I'm SO serious. I'm a little emotional these days, my mom is very ill but that aside... I got teary. Thoughtful. Kind. Generous. CREATIVE. I would love to do a swap that encourages you to break out those very unique stamps again. Thank you, thank you so much. This is definitely one of the top five swaps of my swapping history. xoxo Patty
Response: Mz. Patty thank you for your kind words, rating & â™¡Â¡ I pray your mom is feeling better & that you had a very beautiful mother's day! I'm so happy that you liked what I sent!! Best to you & your family! Be well!!
Comment: I love your 3D house and 2D houses on this skinny! The little key hole is awesome to, that must have been fun to cut out. I love every item you sent in this package. I did notice the post office was not very nice on the price. :( I do appreciate it very much and can't wait to use them. ps. I like the statue of liberty stamp on the envie. (edit) After after I posted this I noticed the the houses open up and it's personalize! Thank you, for the awesome swap. EXTRA HEARTS!
Response: Lol! Glad you liked it & the surprise opening! It was fun making! Crazy how expensive postage has gotten! Thank you for your kind words, rating & â™¡Â¡Â¡Â¡
Comment: WOW! JT---I love the two bookmarks! I especially like the one with the die cut diamond shapes. I have the die and haven't found a chance to use it yet. The bookmark gives s me some ideas for making the die more useful than I thought. Thanks so much--hope you're joining the the altered key swap that I just put up a few days ago.
Wish I could give 100 hearts!
Comment: â¤ â¤ â¤ Did you make the tardis charm? I could not have made a pocket letter for myself and been as pleased. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! â¤ â¤â¤ I guess my profile is random because my profile was your theme!
Response: Lol! I'm all about randomness!! Yes I made the tardis charm using shrink dink! I am so glad you liked it! Thank you for the rating & â™¡Â¡Â¡
Comment: Thank you so much for the incredibly beautiful TH Skinny Card! I love how you used the transparent background and the whole design is gorgeous. Thanks for a very special swap. Thanks for joining -Vanne
Comment: Awesome envelope..stickers, stamps, tape and such fun happy mail. Great quote too! Love everything doxie PC and STAMPS..etc. (Cute name "Winnie" and I believe they were bred to be mischievous - lol.) Thanks so much. Take care, Annette
Comment: Wow Wow I just opened your awesome envelope to find an even more awesome artist journal. It's terrific! I love everything about it - perfect the way you've bound it; I certainly won't be punching holes in these APCs. Each APC is wonderfully fun and creative. I'm partial to rubber stamping and collage, and you've included such great images and sentiments in a free-style, near grunge design that's right up my alley. Many hearts to you!
Response: Yaaay! Glad you liked it! Thank you for the kind words, rating & â™¡Â¡
Comment: Love the ugly sweater wine hanger chunk! Looks like the hanger hole for the neck of the bottle got torn off in transit. I don't mind a bit - I think it's funny what happens to mail as it goes thru the system and thought you might get a chuckle out of it too!
Response: Postal system strikes! Just glad it arrived.... seems like it took the long routeðŸ˜¨ Thank you for hosting, rating & â™¡Â¡
Comment: Hi, So artistic :) Your envelope is awesome ! Love it! I love that you shared so much of your lovelies with me :) The paper cut outs are awesome, I love 'em and I'm wild about washi tape samples. Your card is creative and very pretty and the tiny envelope filled with postage stamps is fabulous. Thank you for it all :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the BTC....it's perfect! Something else that was perfect was the envelope made out of an Elvis calendar page!!! Then the Elvis stamp on top of it.....you deserve 100 hearts at least! :-))
Response: Woohoo! Score! Lol! Thank you for the rating & â™¡Â¡ So mad I missed the Christmas swap but looking forward to future swaps! Happy Thanksgiving! Blessings!
Comment: TJ--sorry to be slow in rating--I always do it, but being on partial leave I tend to stack them up until I have a few minutes to sit down and go through them. I love your skinny--I broke down and bought the die for the coffee cup and may have to get the stamp set as well. That for the little extras in the cute little stitched vellum pocket. That is a clever idea that I must borrow with your permission! We having the kids almost always on Thursdays after school--is a Thursday open any time soon to get them to see the tortoises? Just let me know! Thanks for a great swap!
Comment: TJ--I love your tag! It is beautiful and who cares whether dragon fly or butterflies? I love both along with birds, especially hummers! I most often end up with "muddy" colors when trying his techniques and don't know why. But Tim H. is the one who says to "embrace imperfection"! You said that with your word tag! Nate and Rissa would DEFINITELY love to see the torts anytime you are available when I pick them up after school. We just need to be back to my house or adjust pick up times with Mom or Dad, depending on who is getting them from our house, etc. When you know your schedule, let me know.

Comment: I just love this pocket letter - it's perfect and so very beachy! And thank you for sending extra goodies! I just got back from a week at the beach and they're going to be part of my beach journal! Thank you so much! :)
Comment: I love your version of this tag very much and am glad you were my partner since that meant we got together to chat again at Starbucks. I had a great time and even had time to catch up on email until it was time to head out for my Dr. appointment. Thanks for a great visit and an excellent version of Tim's May tag. You did an amazing job. I wish I'd been able to use the burlap rather than the adhesive backed canvas as the results are very different. But I have to keep to what I say with each swap---improvise and figure other ways to come close to Tim's version given the supplies you have. Have a great summer--let's meet again before a couple years go by this time! My two new knees were worth the effort but certainly knocked out most of my social life for a considerable time! My RA still does that sometimes, but not like before the new knees! Good to see you again!
Response: Great seeing you mz. Peggy! Yes, let's do it again. Next time when I don't have everyone calling me ðŸ˜¬ So glad you liked the tag & looking forward to Tim's June tag! Thank you for rating & appreciate the â™¡! Take care of yourself & have a happy summer!!
Comment: Oh wow! What a beautiful mail themed pocket letter. It's absolutely amazing! And all the goodies...the tags, die cuts, the awesome altered mouse trap and just everything in a mail thing is FANTASTIC! I love it all! Thank you so much!
Response: Yaaay! Glad it arrived & that everything was satisfactory! I enjoyed making it! Thank you so much for the kind words, great rating & so appreciate the â™¡Â¡ Happy summer!
Comment: Love the tag! The flowers are much better than Timmy's. The embossement is great. Very beautiful. I DO NOT need a redo. You are so silly sometimes. Gorgeous work. I am glad you had fun. I thought it was a fun one to do also. See you in the mailbox soon
Response: Thank you for your kind words, rating & â™¡Â¡ Weeds (?) are good ðŸ˜Š Easier to grow for me anyways... SO glad you liked it! â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: Hi and many thanks for the sunny postcard! In fact it's the only sun we have seen in a few days. We have got more snow day after day; something you seldom (or never?) see over there LOL Love your card with the sun and cats with wings, wish I had those rubber stamps too :-)
Response: Thank you mz. Riitta! Glad you liked the spring(ish) card! Wished I could send you some of our Houston sunshine... soon, it'll be more than we want ðŸ˜¥ Keep warm & happy spring!

Thank you for this spectacular bunch of goodies inside a spectacular air mail envie!!!
Response: Awww! Your so kind! Glad you liked everything. The mini envie is made with some paper I had & you can definitely make the "good mail day" stickers. I used sticky sheets and a stamp.. but you can probably do better on a computer ;) Thank you for the generous rating & â™¥! Be well!

Comment: OMG. Let me begin by saying how much I loved the bicycle notecard, your wonderful note and the cool air mail sticker and parking pass!
I was (and still am) awestruck by the AWESOME mousetrap(s) you created! I have never seen an egg mosaic! I love the mermaid' "5" and charms you used! The next trap equally blew me away...I have been "studying" it and noticing all the little bits and bobs you used to create this masterpiece. How can you part with these awesome charms? "Thank you" doesn't seem like enough....please know that I truly appreciate all the thoughtfulness and talent that went into these art pieces. I love that you used my fave number on both of them! Thank you so much!
Response: Yay! So glad you liked them! I wish I knew who to give the credit to for the eggshell mosiacs... I was inspired by a fellow swap-botter that does AMAZING mosiacs. Mine, needless to say, not so amazing ;/ I have "a lot" of charms, so, happy I was able to share some. Thank you for your kind words, rating & â™¥!
Comment: The laughing green Buddhas actually found me missing the final days of summer... I know it's not officially autumn yet, but it feels like it! Your chunk really made my day with its bright colors -- thank you!

I know how you feel about summer...I had 4 kids in 7 years and I was a music teacher.

He leaves on Sunday for his last year at the University of AZ to finish his Masters Degree in Journalism. Marjorie

Comment: I received my scrappy postcard today. Thank you it's great. Unfortunately it got very wet and had a bit of someone else's mail stuck to the front. I managed to free the offending bit of paper and currently have your card Benitez a stack of books in hopes that I can flatten it out. Rough time of year for mailing mail art :-)
Response: Rough is putting it mildly! Postal system, now weather & Christmas mail overload are harsh! Glad you were able to salvage the PC. Gotta love the holidays tho :) Thank you for rating & so appreciate the â™¥
Comment: beautiful use of negative space too. although I changed this swap to "any" altered text to see if I could get more takers , so be gentle with your partner. (I saw it on the front page when you added it to flickr, was hoping it would be mine!)
Comment: Hello TJS! Thank you so much for the awesome tag. Love how the calendar is under her arm. Fun. Thank you for starting off my calendar year so wonderfully. Thanks for your precious reds too! :-) XOXO

Comment: + 20 more hearts, please ;+) I knew I was right to be thrilled you were my sending partner! What absolutely beautiful things you created. The tag is such a joy with its little charm and twinkling jingle bells. And the card looked like it might have taken a whole day to make! I love them both and they are displayed proudly on my little Ikea "clothesline" in the pass-through between kitchen and dining area. May the swap gods see fit to assign you as my sending partner in MANY more swaps to come.
Response: I am so glad I didn't disappoint & that you liked everything. The card was fun. It was the first time I used that sizzix die. Thank you so much for your kind words, rating & heart! Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Hi! I love the little boy Christmas pc! It is wonderful! Yep our babies have to grown up - sigh! But it is wonderful when you not only still love them, but also like them! Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Lol! I always tell my son I love him but there are a few (?) times I don't like him. Glad to know I'm not the only mom that feels exactly the same way. I CAN wait to always like him for now tho ;) Thank you for the holiday wishes, rating & heart!
Comment: Hi! What an awesome chunk of cardboard! LOL! Yes, I do love Halloween, so this was perfect! My Halloween was very quiet - it rained so I only saw Trick or Treaters on FB! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Couldn't go wrong with anything Nightmare before Christmas right? Glad it arrived to you safely. Thank you so much for the rating & heart! Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Love the postcard. I am thrilled for the cooler weather also. After the first snow, I will be done with winter and ready for spring. Thank you so much for a reminder that spring is only 6 months away. Super card, thank you.

Response: Glad you liked it & hope you can use it... You are so welcome! Thank you for your kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: Lovely embossing. I never thought to emboss envelopes! Only one design I already have so that was fantastic. You sent a fabulous batch and so generous too. Thanks! And by the way, I love the Christmas card. I like things that are different. I'll probably steal the idea, if you don't mind!!?
Response: Yay! Glad they will work! Oh yes, emboss EVERYTHING! Steal away & if I ever get a swap together, I'll send you a personal invite... Lol! Thank you so much for the rating, kind words & oooh, heart!!
Comment: I liked your postcard very much! I was thrilled you put so many elements on it-that's my favorite "look." My absolute favorite is the jar (complete with a silver mason jar latch) of arsenic! Wherever did you find something so NEAT!? I love it. Thank you!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it! The mason jar is a sizzix die... very fun! Thank you so much for rating & heart!
Comment: What a delightful selection of crap you sent to me! :) Especially liked the little piece on the side that feels like suede. Nice. Also like that leaf punch. I may have to see if I can find one like it.
Response: Wow! That got there fast! The leaves were leftover die cuts fromTim Holtz Autumn Gathering Alterations Decorative Strip. Thank you so much for the rating & heart!
Comment: What a perfect tag---covers Texas pretty thoroughly. I could have used the star on the ATC I made! I had a wooden one I painted and "aged" ready to use and it disappeared just when I needed it! I found it a couple days later in plain sight on my work table, so it must have gotten under something. I will it for another project! Coffee and chat sounds great! Enjoy the week-end!
Response: Lol! Mz. Peggy that is funny! I picked up my stars at Hobby Lobby. They are the mini tree ornaments :) Looking forward to that coffee & chat... Thank you for the rating & â™¥
Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful postcard! Just got back from my vacation so I had a big pile of mail to go through. I love yours though. I remember seeing it on flickr last month. So happy to have received it. Thanks again.
Response: Yay! Glad it arrived. Nothing like getting happy mail after a great vacation right? Thank you for the rating & heart!!
Comment: Thank you so much for my pocket-in-a-pocket, with all of the cute die cuts, journaling cards and little notecard!!! I LOVE everything! I can't believe, either, that it is almost Halloween!!! Seems like if I blink it will be Christmas .... Thanks again for such a fun swap and teeny cuteness!!!
Comment: Great envelope-knew right away what swap it was. Lovely lady and she even had a ND plate on her shoulder-clever!
Thanks for all the die cut outs inside-don't believe I have seen the artist one before-I'm always looking for something with art in it like heart or party-but artist is even better. Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Thank you! I wouldn't have thought to keep stuff like this for future postcards either, but now that I know, I totally wish I would have gotten so many cool pieces from Europe when I went! And thanks for the extra stamp too, I enjoyed the whole thing :)
Response: Yay! Being a hoarder, you tend to look at things differently. My kids use to think I was crazy for saving "crap", now they just laugh. Happy gathering! Thank you for rating & the heart!
Comment: Houston, we've got lift off! I LOVE this pc! The Emancipation Proclamation is one of my favorite stamps and I love that little telephone. I'm going to try to use a stylus to emboss the phone shape so I can have some of those phones! Great choice for me! Thanks! â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡
Response: Glad you liked! Thank you so much for the rating & heart... Lol! I will mail you some tele's. I've got the die ;)
Comment: I would give you 3 hearts if I could for coolness of your pc! The holes are a neat addition and very unique. And yes I agree about the care of wild flowers. Thanx for sharing in this swap with me. blessings, ellie
Response: Lol! Wish I had thought of the holes but they were actually vents for the bulbs in the box. The flowers are beautiful! Thank you for your kind words, rating & heart! Be well!
Comment: Love the ATC! I, too, had fun digging around my drawers for office supplies. You've got some neat stuff on here. Love the graph paper. And you totally confused me with the Doctor Who envie (I was thinking, "I'm not expecting DW stuff from TX...), but it's awesome! The Cyberman even got 'beat up' a bit in the mail, haha. Thanks also for the nifty Password bookmark. I love the b&w version of that gameshow. Extra hearts for you: ♥♥♥♥
Response: Yay! Funny about the Who envie! I read your profile ;) Thank you so much for the rating & ooh, all them hearts!!
Comment: Wow sister! I got you envie of kickass crap today. I knew about those tp things, but wow, you gave me idears for a bunch of cool stuff, so I am totally gonna copy you. No whining. Thank you for joining and for such cool envie and stuff! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxPS thanks for asking; it is much better!
Response: Yay! Glad all was good! Lol! You've been whining? That's what friends are for... listening! Be good girlfriend! Thanks for the 5 & <3!!
Comment: what a craptastic pocket! Thanks for all of the great extras- labels, pink glitter tape[squeee], stamps and tiny words- the gearATC is so cool. Love the feather flower and the postcard- James T would love it! Thanks so much!!
Comment: LOVE, LOVE the awesome journal pages you made! I feel I cannot thank you enough! they are amazing! I also loved what you did with the package on the outside!! you are so crafty :) and all the extras you sent was so sweet of you! I loved them all! Thank you so very much! we must do a private swap sometime :)
Comment: So cute! Although I don't quite understand the "stache" popularity, I love it! The envelope was very well made and the moustache label was the perfect icing on the cake! Even inked around the edges. Thanks, too, for all the lovely Halloween goodies. I told my husband yesterday that I'm getting in the mood (even though it's over 90 degrees here every day right now). Makes me wish for fall and pumpkins! Thanks for taking time to read my profile and send something so nice.
Response: Thank you for liking it, rating & heart! I'm with you on the 'stache idea... My daughter loves them so, hence, mustaches! You & I both can't wait for fall! I'm melting here in Houston!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC! I love Alice in Wonderland. Thanks, too, for the matchbox! Where did you get that paper? Thank you, thank you, thank you. Oh...I almost forgot to say a special thanks for the ticket stub from the Sound of Music! You really did read my profile!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked everything! The paper is from the newish (?) Graphic 45, Steampunk Spells paper pad. I was fortunate enough to buy the last pad at our LSS ;) I found that ticket stub in a library book! Thank you so much for rating & the heart is so appreciated!
Comment: First off the envelope was awesome-brightened up my mailbox! The lady with hat was beautiful-loved all the vintage elements and dimension! And the colors! And then you sent such wonderful extras-the lady like a paperdoll and then the paperdoll girls-and other stuff-it was all great-you are a nice partner to have-till next time! Oh yeah-I guess we talk like that although we don't think so-and it's strange but the movie Fargo was actually filmed in my husbands hometown of Brainerd, MN and not even Fargo-but we will take the credit anyway-HA HA!
Response: Lol! Thank you for rating AND heart! I'm glad you liked the skinny! You're right, till next time aye! ;)
Comment: Oh My....I LOVE this chunk! Love it! I get every penny I spend out my craft packaging, so I will have to look for this paper pad now! One of my all-time faves, Thanks! Love the way you drew the little gears, too! Fabulous! = ) â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Steampunk correct? It is a very cool pad of paper! I was fortunate to buy the last one in our LSS ;) Thank you so much for rating & the heart!
Comment: Got my lovely accordion kitties in the mail today~! So NEAT! I especially love the kitty with the East Indian jewels ;+) I really like that you painted the background--looks very mixed-media which is so popular and individualized. Thanks for creating something so nice for me!
Response: You are so welcome! Thank YOU for the rating & heart!
Comment: OMG! I wish I could give you 5 hearts and a dozen stars! Your cow postcard is amazing - so funny, and I love the way you decorated the back. The neighbor girl who does my yardwork was here when I grabbed my mail, so we looked at it and read it together - she loved it too! :o) And your household sounds like an amazing and fun place to be - can I come live with you, lol? We don't have tortoises in Minnesota, just turtles. Each June, there's what I call a "turtle migration", when they're everywhere, heading for water. It's fun to see the babies trying to navigate the grass on their way to the creek out back, which feeds into the lake in town. Mostly snappers, but some box turtles too. Thank you SO MUCH for this great card, I'm going to be showing it off to my sister this weekend, for sure! :oP
Response: Lol! So glad you liked it! All the Chick-fil-A Cows are fun! If you get a chance to see a calendar, you'll get a laugh. Yup, my house is quite the zoo! You are welcome anytime! Have a most awesome weekend! Thank you for your kind words, rating & all them hearts & stars!! ((Biggie hugs))
Comment: Hi Thanks for the same stuff ATC!! WE did ours so different from each other!! Isn;t that the point, to see each others work. I loved your ATC! This was a fun swap and I sure enjoyed it. Thanks for the Garfield note card and the Garfield and Odie image! They are appreciated!! Thanks for reading my profile. Well, Ms. TJS I also hope you are enjoying your summer. I love the blue skies and sunshine of summer!! :)
Response: You are so welcome! It is amazing how differently everyone's card came out! Have a great summer yourself & keep cool!
Comment: WOW... I kept saying "holy crap!" from the minute I saw the decopaged wooden box you mailed it in... all the way through to the end of the letter you wrote. LOL!!! I LOVE IT!! Great Extras, the pocket is totally "Me"... you obviously took some time to read my profile and kept me in mind while you created and assembled! For that you get "double hearts"!! <3<3 Thank you!
Response: Yay! Glad it was all good my Texas friend! Thank you for all the kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: OMGoodness! I'm in love with my grungy message clip and artful envie. Thank you so much! So glad you read what happened to David with the Choking "Game". Want this tragedy to never happen to any one & their family!!
Response: Glad you liked the "grungyness." Thank YOU for being the strong person & educating people after such a heartbreaking event! ((Biggie Hugs))
Comment: Gorgeous! I will reuse your envelope as I think you should have it back. That's really neat stuff, the masking material. Thank you also for the notes and extras which I will use in my smash books. <3
Response: Thank you for the kind words... What you decide to keep & pass on is up to you. I decorate most of my envies going out so... I'm excited to get the final PC back & see what everybody did ;) Have a great summer my friend!
Comment: Your envelope is AWESOME!!!!!!! I am going to hold onto it for awhile and maybe use it for an art journal or scrapbook!! The goodies inside were all fabulous and you absolutely made my day and put me in the spirit!! Wish I could give you multiple heart!
Response: Yay! Had fun making everything & it's great that you liked it all. Thank you so much for your kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: What a fantastic job you did on the Origami dress(es)! Thank you soooo much! I think we have swapped 3x or more this month it seems??!! btw, are you a 'lefty'? Your handwriting looks like my friend's and she is, just thought it would be neat to know. Thanks again! KK
Comment: I was so happy to see you were one of my partners in this swap - this is another great postcard from you. Even cooler: you got a bottle cap on there...and it made it! Thanks for sharing some TX brew pride with me :D
Comment: My son came running with the mail. Mom look at this! Your PC is awesome! You are such a show off with the stamping and stickers. Where did you get the beer bottle one. Warm weather is upon us! At least your closer to the beach than me!
Response: Lol! You're son was the "little hare!" Glad you liked it. The beer sticker is actually a 12" x 12" sheet of card stock with rows & rows of those beer bottles. If you'd like, I can ship some you're way ;p Thank you for the rating & heart.
Comment: Thank you. Love your zine, and thanks for the nice note. Made my day. BTW, I just bought more paper. And ordered some on Ebay...I'm terrible!
Response: Glad you liked the zine! Lol! My fellow paper hoarder! I'm just as bad! I'd say, "just walk away" but, HA! You're ordering from home!! What cool paper did you buy? Yay!!
Thank you for the rating & heart!!
Comment: Ummm...wow, thank you soooo much for the great pc. Also, the mail art envie is the best one that I have ever rec'd! â™¥
Response: Wow! Fast delivery! Glad you liked it & the envie. Lol! I'm always intimidated when I have to send to the host. My envie is rather plain compared to some of the ones I've received ;p but thank you so much for your kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: Hi there - thanks for the great envie and tomato sauce label note! About my likes - I guess I like chemical smells as well as floral scents - I'll have to check out strange addictions. Just noticed your "Creation" on the back of the envie. Very cool, just like the Pinot Gris kicking back on the chaise lounge enjoying the ocean-side breeze...
Response: Lol! Glad it arrived! I was worried that the mag. envie might've been too thin. Whew!
Yes, definitely check out that program, you'll find yourself rather normal ;)
Have a great weekend! Thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: I loved all your washi tapes. <3 I got to use them right away on one of my swaps. The polka dot made everything so much prettier - I had a smaller version of it and got to use them together. :D
Response: Yay! I am sooo glad you liked them & were able to make use of them! Thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: Thanks so much for sending a second zine and some stamps. Beautifully put-together package all around.
Response: Whew! Glad it arrived safely & that you liked everything! I'm stressing this collaborative zine swap! I don't want to mess anyone's zine up ;/ Thank you for your encouraging words, rating and heart!
Comment: Wow! Lucky me "queen for a day". Terrific envelope! Stamps and art.... PCM was great... Florida emerald coast love those beaches... The card ... Where did you find it? So special... The atc perfect. Even the blue gingham tape...thank you for a wonderful swap
Response: Thank you for rating & heart! The card is part of a set I bought at a Half Priced Bookstore for a couple of $. Great place to buy cheap postcards & notecards.
Comment: LOVE the ATC !! Archie was my favorite comic when I was growing up in the 50's/60's....Thanks so much for bringing a smile to my face...it's also good to know that you too love our great country! Many hearts to you!
Response: You are SO welcome Mz. Barbie! Thank you for the rating & heart!((Biggie Hugs))
Comment: Bright or dark colors are fine; mostly I am not a pastel fan - will update my profile! Thanks! Reply: no need to apologize, on the postcard nor here. Your PC was fine! I was just trying to clarify since you said on your PC that you avoided dark colors for me... Dark or jewel tone are best; bright and neon aren't the same to me but no worries... You'd have been fine even if it were profile-based. Maps, purple & green - cant go wrong.
Response: So glad it wasn't profile based! I would've totally failed...I guess to me dark purple & turquoise are bright since I love dark colors. Promise to do super brights (no neons tho) next time! I so apologize. Thank you for rating!
Comment: WOW! What a fantastically put together swap. From the outside which made me giggle to read all the decoration on the envie to your terrific holey Moley Cowabunga stuffed container. It looks like it might've started life as a laughing cow cheese container. So much to love and ooooh over right now my fave piece is the burlap Eiffel Tower which I'm bout to turn into a functional art piece for my meet the teachers gig tomorrow. I can't thank you enough but I will try with the swap I'm preparing for you :) thank you again for the swap. It has split my face in the biggest happy grin. Hahahahahahaha!
Response: Lol! Glad it was all good! You are right, laughing cow it was! I'd love to see what you do with the burlap. No hurries on my end... Have a craptastic weekend bud!
Comment: Loved the card and didn't think it was too dark considering the subject! The mailing envelope was great too-wonderful embossing!and the envelope for the card was fun too-if I mail it to anyone it would be to me! Thanks for the extras-I love doilies.-your're fun to swap with!
Response: Glad you liked it! Thank you for your kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: Thank you for reading my profile and sending the most wonderful swap... From the perfect envelope to the wonderful PC (love love it). To the card w/ image and env. And the very thoughtful note.... You really made my day !!! Thanks so much
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it! One can never go wrong with Dorthy & Route 66! Thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: What a cool surprise today! LOVE your embossed envie...did you make that? LOVE the printed burlap...I almost bought it but put it back...so thank you! The tags were phenomenal! You are wonderfully creative! I looked at each one forever! Thank you for including your big tag...I did the same thing and made big tags before I realized they were to be smaller..lol. Hearts galore <3<3<3<3<3<3
Response: So welcome! Yes to the envie... Just ran it thru the ole cuttlebug! Thank you so much for your kind words, rating & ooh, look at all them hearts! Yay!
Comment: What a wonderful April tag with perfect encouraging words for me right now! I'd love to be able to give more than ONE heart!
Also, I think you are right about delivering the next swap in person, or better yet, just making a time to meet at a Starbucks or for lunch and get acquainted in person. We live SO close to each other, it would be a shame not to check out our interests in person and maybe make the beginning of a great friendship. If it doesn't work out that way, we have lost nothing, but if we don't meet we may lose something very special! What are your thoughts about making this happen? HUGS--Peggy
Comment: Beautiful-Loved the envelope-first thing off and then the inside was just as wonderful-great tag-I've got a bunch of the dylusions rubber stamps but haven't tryed the ink sprays yet! Loved the tissue paper with all the quotes on it too-thanks for swapping!-it's always a treat!
Response: Glad you liked! Must try inks! They are pretty & bright! Thank you for your kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: Hi tjs ! My key to the Queendom arrived today! Wow do you have me figuired out. I love Christmas and Keys and it is absolutely perfect!
Santa's magic key ...AWESOME!.....Thank you so much! Hugs Peggy
p.s. The mailbox card is going to be framed and hung along with my collection....very very nice I wish I could give more hearts!
Response: Glad to know all was a hit! Yay! The mailbox card was 1 of 3 or 4 I believe... Look for RAK in mail my friend! Thank you for heart & rating!
Comment: Hi! I love your Harlequin pc! Very cool! My MIL reads Harlequins all the time! I do not, but that is ok, different reading makes the world go round! The empty nest is going ok - I do miss my kiddos, but sometimes when they are home they are a pain, so... LOL! You know how we humans are - never happy/satisfied! LOL! My heart still hurts because they are away but it is so exciting to see them becoming adults and making hopefully great decisions for their futures! Makes a parent proud but also wonder how the heck the years go so quickly! Enjoy your kiddos! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you for the ever encouraging words when I sometimes want to run away ;) you are right about time flying... Hard to believe my kids are already teenagers! Lord help me! Thank you for the rating & heart!! Now to carry on... LOL!
Comment: Thank you for the great PC. Some of my favourite themes Asian and stamps. Well done. PS. My husbands book of the Hobbit fell to pieces in the bath, now we have to buy it again - still it was well used. :)
Response: You are welcome! LOL! Now you can use Hobbit pages for creating "precious" art! Thank YOU for rating & heart!
Comment: Thank you very much for your zine and extra!! I love them! :) I'm very glad to partner of you! Embossing envelope is really amazing!!!! Is it sale or handmade??? It's very awesome I never seen!!!!
Response: Yay! Zine arrived! Glad you liked! The envie is HM... Just ran it thru cuttlebug. Thank you so much for rating & heart!
Comment: WOW! I love your masterboard pieces so much! They are so beautifull nd I love embossed and different colors! I did had funmaking them too.... in fact I am now so addicted to those type of stamping that I want to make a swap for masterboard stamped +collage I will let you know just in case you will be interested ;-)
Response: Yay! Definitely! Keep me posted! Glad you liked them. Thank you for rating & the heart!
Comment: Wow what a surprise to see such wonderful pockets. I really like the variety and it gives me such great ideas! Thanks for giving me some authors to check out for reading..I am always looking for good recommendations. I am the same with the Grafton novels. I HAVE to read them in order and my library has been out of my next two for a while so being ever so patient...:/
Response: Yay! Glad you liked the pockets! I turn everything & anything into pockets! Thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: Wow! Wow! Wow! I loved this journal. Amazing! My kids wanted to argue over who got it and I quickly put them in their place that it was mine. Thank you for making this and adding the personal pieces. I love to go dancing too but no go with the other half. Ugh. :) we should do this again sometime.
Response: LOL! Your kids sound like mine ;)
I'm glad you liked it. It was definitely fun making... Thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: What a wonderful burst of color; I opened the envelope with your skinny inside while standing near my front window. It was a very grey and white day outside so the beach scene was quite a contrast. Thank you
Comment: Thank you for sending in an envie, and also for reading my profile. Love the cards!!!!!!!! My daughter lives up in Round Rock,and loves it!!! I lived in Killeen in the early 80's....I love Texas, too...
Response: You are SO welcome! Thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: Wow! I just loved the envie. What a fun embossing folder! And the inchies made me feel all nostalgic for the sorts of decorations that were put up when I was in elementary school. :) Very fun. And thank you for the extras. I will definitely put them to good use.
Comment: What a beautiful job you did on my tag! It was altogether lovely. I loved the extras (Gandalf bookmark!) and other bits. I think this was a bit difficult as T.H. style is very grungy and rustic, which isn't really compatible with "cups of tea by the fireside". So I though you did an excellent job with it.
Response: LOL! Thank for the kind words, rating & heart. I normally do grunge but like you said, it was rather hard with this theme.. Maybe the next one!
Comment: It has been a pleaseure swappin with u and I cant wait to send you a fun return letter containing a SB for you to start on or was it a DECO u wanted??
Oops! Either way u totally deserve a <3 for all the effort u put into this swap. I look forward to swapping again with u on SBot
Response: Thank you for second chances! Looking forward to seeing one of these thing-a ma-jigies... Thank YOU for the rating, heart & educating me ;)
Be well & happy holidays!

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful envies! I LOVE the Edward Gorey postcards you included! You rock! I wish I could enjoy more of the fall weather but right now we're hunkering down for this impending Frankenstorm! Thanks for Joining and Happy Swapping!
Response: Be safe most importantly my friend! Thank you for the kind words, rating & heart.
Comment: Hi tjs I enjoyed reading the note you sent me. My daughter works at a Target store and at the Starbucks in the store, so I get good treats , have you had the lemon cake or pumpkin muffins ??? Love them! Thank you Lynne
Response: Lol! You give me a reason to go to Starbucks! Sounds like I must try the pumpkin muffins! Thank you for the suggestion, rating & heart!
Comment: WOW!! I love it! No such thing as a "purple overload" !! Isn't it amazing what a person can do with 1 sheet of paper?? Take a talented person such as yourself give 'em a sheet of paper and PRESTO - they produce magic!! Thanks so much for such a pretty little booklet! The bookmark was very special also! :)
Response: Oh my goodness! That got there super fast! Glad you liked it but I do apologize for the big rings. Thank you for your kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: Wonderful twinchies!!! Thank you so muchg and for personalizing them so much!! I love the composition of each of them - my new favorites!!! Thanks again for such great twinchies. . . and thanks for the extra PC (love the boot) and the playing cards!!!
Response: You ate so welcome. Thank YOU for the rating & heart.
Comment: Oh, what a swap! Thanks for the wonderful inchies (I like them all - but the skull with the green eyes is my favourite). And I also love the extras you sent. I will be happy to use them on ATC or cards.
Comment: tjs - what an AMAZING tip in! Oh my gosh.
I wish I could give you more than one heart.... You are truly a very gifted lady that knows how to make something out of nothing!
Love the extras. They all go in my smash book. I guess I need to create one just for YOUR paper crafts:)
Thank you so much
Response: No problem my friend! I'm glad you liked it! And again, thank you for the rating & heart!
Comment: omheavens! You are sooooooooooo clever (and funny, for a stalker-jk about the stalker part, but you are funny!)! I LOVE my twinchies - what a fantastic idea! The tiny little letter with my address is also adorable - well done, my friend!! :o)
Response: Lol! Glad you liked them! They were fun to make! Thank you so much for the rating & having a laugh about the stalker thing ;)
Comment: Yours is the first Dotee I have ever received. That makes it very special to me. Plus you read my profile and made me an owl. You rock. The colors are perfect for a fall owl. You did a great job, thanks so much. Bonnie
Response: You are so welcome. I too am new to dotees. Be careful! They are somewhat addicting. Thank you for your kind words, rating & heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the card! I got it on saturday!
Response: Wish I would've known sooner. I will try resending today... I guess I need to find a better way of keeping track of swaps sent & when & if received...
Ever wonder where all that lost mail goes? Oi!
Comment: First of all - I looove the envelope(totally gonna reuse it-will give you credit!) and then I opened it and found your beautiful-skeletonie tag!! Love it!! Thank you so much - and for the great note!! Happy Halloween!!
Response: You're so welcome! Glad you liked everything. Thank you for the rating & heart ;)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome folder, and for sending me the note about the post office debacle. It's very strange they wanted to put a customs dec on it when it is essentially just a large postcard. Oh well!
Comment: Well you did it again!!! LOVE it!! I shall name him "Mr. H. Ween!" I thank you soooo much for sending such a well crafted item! I love making them but really LOVE receiving them!! You should join the swap I have listed "Dotee Doll - Sender's Choice"....Maybe I could luck out and receive another one from you!! LOL!! Thanks again for another swell swap!

Response: Oh my goodness! Glad you liked it! One can never go wrong with Tim Holtz... Thank you for the kind words & heart!!
Comment: Aw, aw, AWOooooooo. That's my lone wolf call to you. Yes, we're lone wolves in a world of ephemera collage. Hee hee. Thank you for the postcard. I CANNOT believe the post office mailed THAT postcard with THAT huge wooden coin on there for only a postcard stamp. Amazing. A heart for bravery and trickery.
Response: Lol!Got one over on the posty. Believe me, they owe! ;)
Comment: Now this is how you do a junk journal! I absolutely ADORE the journal you made me :) I love the style/colors and how you so thoughtfully put together everything. This is one swap I was so happy to receive..I couldn't even put it away, as all my family members have been "oohing" and "ahhing" over it! I will treasure this always, what a beautiful journal you made me! Thank you so much!
Response: Glad you liked the colors & stuff. Now what will really make it, is all YOUR great stuff in it!! Enjoy! Thanks for the rating & heart!
Comment: Fantastic!!! Love it! So patriotic!! You asked if there was anything you could improve on? Just put a hanger on the next one and it will be perfect! You said you "might" do more dotees.....?? Well....I sure hope so, and I hope I get you as a partner again! Thanks for a well crafted dotee! I've named her "Miss Star Spangle" Many hearts to you.... <3
Response: Yay! You know after I packed her up, I thought about that hanger... I will definitely do it next time. And yup, I will do more, it was fun and relaxing! I hope I get you as a partner again, your easy to please... That was my first dotee ever by the way!! Thank you for the rating, kind words of encouragement & heart!
Comment: You definitely hit on one of my big likes!! It's funny, I was in Starbucks a while back and picked up that same flyer, thinking, "Ooo, mail art!" LOL. Great minds think alike. I love everything you sent, and the envelope was great, very creative. (Where'd you get that giant hand?) Thank you so much!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked everything! I search all magazines for hands & shoes... No magazine is safe!! Mwah ha ha!!
Comment: Oh...I LOVE THEM!!!!! Especially the one with the little hanging charm. Thank you for teaching me a new technique! And I truly loved the papers you sent along with them--glitter glitter glitter--little fairy dust on paper. Thanks so much and I'm hoping we are swap partners again!
Comment: Thank you so much for the great "bits and pieces" ATC. I liked all the elements you included, and got a chuckle out of your covered worktable comment. I guess we're all sisters under the skin! I will also use the extras.
Comment: Thank you so much for your zines (they were great!) & your nice note :-) I really appreciate you taking the time to drop me a note. Yes, I have been to Houston long time ago...we had relatives who used to live there. & how cool you were a welder/inspector in the navy! Awesome :-) Mary Ann
Comment: Oh wow! Cool idea to emboss the envelope! The Inchie display looks cool too! Is this washi tape you used? Thanks for the Inchies and extra Inchies. They look great! Thanks for the stamped images and alien stickers (cool!) I hope you had a great trip :)
Comment: Wow!!! I don't know what to say except that I am blown away by your incredibly beautiful journal and generous package. It arrived yesterday and because this has been the craziest, busiest weekend ever I wanted to be able to read it through giving it the attention it deserves. So for now I would just like to say a huge thank you and give you 987,999,987,900 hearts, for that is what you deserve. :). <3
Response: Yay! So glad it arrived! Your weekend sounds FULL! Oi! I hope you can put everything to use... just remember, most stuff is put on with removable tape ;) thank you much for the rating & ALL them hearts!
Comment: Thank you for your nice ATC and all the other nice stuff. My youngest just got the Cars Stickers right now. I think my older son will like the things, too. He can look for it when he comes back from his sleepover party from shool. This envelope takes a long travell from you to me. I don't even think for it anymore. But it's great that it had arrive.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC. The flag was perfect to let the stamps shine through. All the extras are amazing. I adore the Halloween items and stamps. The card is wonderful. I never thought of using an entire seed bag!!! Perfect swap. Hugs & 100 Hearts, Mona
Response: Yay! Glad you liked everything! Many thanks to you for the heart!
Comment: Oh what treats in my envie and the envie itself. Hated to open, so pretty. I loved, loved the vintage post card, the old stamps, the bookmark and of course the ATC. You really outdid yourself and it came on a day I really needed a cheer up. Wish I could give you acouple of hearts!!!
Response: You're so nice! I'm glad you liked everything & that they arrived at the perfect time. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Eeeee I abolutely love the sock money #1 :O) Thanks for such a fun start for the clock. Sorry for the late rating. You got lost in my purse. I love love love the monkey and the flip flops too :O) Thanks
Response: Oi! I hate being lost in purses!! Lol! Thanks for the rating and <3
Comment: Wow! What an assortment of gorgeous ephemera! First of all.... I absolutely was drooling over the different playing cards! Where do you get such a variety of them? My favorite was the largest one with the blue backside and the numbered side had dancing couples.... but they were all so great... the ones with the girlfriends and the paris one.... wow again! The stamps, the magazine clippings... the stickers... the odds and end frames and tags. It was all terrific! I hope you receive an equally great envelope from your partner!
Response: Your so welcome! I frequent thrift stores or antique places for playing cards. There are some pretty cool ones out there ;)
I too am looking forward to receiving my envies, fingers crossed ;)
Have a great day!!
Comment: wow you put a lot of creativity into your zine! love it! (oh, and I hate cigarette smoke too!) I've never been to Houston, I think it looks lovely there though. Big special thanks for the papers you slipped in, these will brighten up my crafts :D Thank you!!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked my zine... I am new to this particular craft. Have a great scrappin day my friend!!
Comment: Thank you so much for a really over-the-top package =) Extra hearts should be an option. Now I know why the cats where circling me like sharks, they smelled the treats as soon as I took the envelope inside ;P I love absolutely everything you sent, especially the ATC and the parking summons. I've designed a set of business cards that says "you park like an idiot, are you this selfish all the time?" (just in Norwegian of course). I hand out a LOT of them ;P I'll post the one from you on the fridge. It does take up a lot of space, selfish big thing *giggle* The postal service became quite jumpy around here after our terror last summer, but seems to concentrate on flat-ish mail for some reason. They just love to open envelopes with postage stamp swaps! Beads and pills and salt and such, no biggie, they go straight for the paper goods ;P
Response: You're so welcome! Dang it tho, I had a small package of twizzlers & a few packs of ranch Dip packages for your sour cream. Not sure if y'all have that there but it sure makes for some yummy potatoe chip or veggies dip or mixed in with mashed potatoes. Next time bud! Have a good one & watch for them damn selfish drivers ;)
Comment: Love, love, love the postcard. It reminds me of my gym class in junior high in the '60's. I guess that dates me for sure. We we're in Dallas for Easter and my daughter's wedding. Loved the warm weather in early April.
Comment: Thanks for a great package -- I love the ATC! And thanks so much for the extras -- I will put them to good use. I am even impressed with the envelope -- had never thought of using embossing on the front and back! Great job! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool inchies. Have never one these before so I am going to try and see what happens. I loved the envelope. Did you make that also. If so how? Keep in touch if you would like too. Barb craftybarbie
