Comment: The glass gumdrop you send was opened when it arrived. I think the postal service must have tried to run it through the machine, the pouch it came in was all torn up (almost looked burnt) and the envelope was destroyed. Still pretty glass though
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package of trims! I use these all the time so I'm always looking for more.
Response: I have a lot of more trims and fabrics too. They were passed on from my oldest sister who worked in the fabric store and sews. thank you for the rating and heart. Hope that we will swap just trims and fabrics in private.

I don't even know how you managed to fit all of it into the envelope. I love everything and will definitely put it to good use. I'd give you 100+ hearts if I could! Thank you!
Comment: Hi Judaline!
Your bottle is adorable! Well, maybe spookily adorable! How could you work on something so small and detailed?? Great job! I love the little skull head and the charms. Thank you for the stickers, too! I loved your swap tag ... very cute! Thanks for everything! Happy Halloween and Happy Swapping! Valerie
Comment: I am so freaking happy right now. I love these kind of cheese boxes! Plus you filled them with awesomeness. I needed those charms in a bad way. Thanks for all the fun goodies and extra envelopes. I am thrilled to recieved this wonderful package. Thank you so much!
Response: It was fun swap and I was so thrilled to receive your package too! Hope we can do it again some day.Thanks for rating and heart.
Comment: Oh my gosh I LOVE this little matchbox. You did such an amazing job on it. The vintage black cat is perfect and I love the embellishments you put around the sides. I have an entire printer's box devoted to miniature Halloween goodies and your matchbox is now in it. I also put the little woodcut moon in the printer's box. And the stuff you fit into the matchbox! The tombstone stickers are the best. And I love the little pumpkin charm. This swap really wowed me. Thank you so very very much! :-) :-) :-)
Response: Thanks for the heart and glad you like them. I love altering those matchboxes because I love tiny things that go inside!
Comment: Sorry I was late in rating, for some reason I swore I did but turned out I didn't. TYVM for the wonderful assortment of beads you sent. There were some really interesting ones I cant wait to use!
Response: Glad you like them, me too sometimes I forgot too smile and I love being your group of years of beads and hope it will keep going for years!
Comment: Thank you! I know what you mean - I think mine turned out more like a surprise potato than a surprise ball. The tutorials made it look so easy to wrap everything up into a neat little ball. It's a lie!
Comment: I'm awestruck! Such a cute dotee. See's so gorgeous and ocean-worthy. Thank you for being so able to get "me" from my profile. You've shown me some new dotee techniques, too. You deserve a lot more stars!!!
Response: I am glad it arrived safe! I am like you I grew up with my dad going to fishing a lot and play by the beach!
Comment: Wow! The chunky charm is beautiful! I really love the bird cage and the tiny leaves are adorable. I'm going to put a bigger clasp on it so I can attach it to my work tote bag. I keep going back to it and admiring it!! The only thing you missed, was that you were supposed to decorated the box or a tag you present the charm with. You probably just skimmed over that part of the directions and missed it. No biggie. Thank you for the beautiful charm!
Response: oh sorry the chunk charm that I recieved from other swapper did same thing with box so I did not check with directions, but glad you like it.
Comment: Thank you for my booty box. I really liked the variety of lace and beads you included. My teenage daughter has already "borrowed" the purple bracelet. It's so cute. The entire box was so fun to go through.
Comment: Sooo cute poo!! What a CUTE find these stickers are! I'll have to tick one up in my bathroom, somewhere, of course, and one on my mini-beer fridge that I cover with stickers, then i'll keep a few with stickers I keep to look at and not use. Thanks for the poo! And thanks for joining!
Comment: I'm very impressed! ðŸ’– Thank you for the thoughtful package of junk jewelry. I really love that you read my profile and picked items that I would like. âï¸ I'm crazy for bling and when I saw all the bling I freaked out and did a happy dance. Rhinestones make me very giddy!! ðŸ’—ðŸ’— Oh, and those kitty buttons!!! Love them!! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ And those cool keys ðŸ”‘ðŸ—âï¸Gosh, thank you very much for your thoughtful pics, you've made my day!!!
Comment: I absolutely adore this kitty! The details on the face and it's just SO junker Jane in style. My cats were all about the fuzzy hair, too (that's why my crafty dolls stay behind a closed door!). Thank you for a great swap!
Comment: Yipee! I LOVE my little skelly doll. I will name him Skully. :) I also love how you decorated the inside of the matchbox. I just love to open little boxes and find little surprises inside. Thank you so much for joining my swap and making such a fabulous little fellow. :):):)
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart and would love to swap again!
Comment: Yay they arrived! Thank you they are adorable, and so tiny! â™¡â™¡â™¡
My heart stopped when I saw the envie had a sizable slit along the bottom, but thank goodness the bunny and bird hadn't run away, lol.
Response: Thanks and happy they are safe in your hands.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful Button Fairy. I love the colors and your choice of buttons is wonderful. I like that you gave her arms! I look at a lot of images where I love the face but the torso doesn't work for a Button Fairy. I never thought to combine images to get the right look. Thanks for the great idea. Your sweet fairy makes me think of Spring and she'll hang in my craft room where I can enjoy seeing her every day.
Response: Thanks for rating and heart. I had fun making them,
Comment: Firstly, I like the tweed yarn. It's so soft! (It's begging to be a hat ;) Unwinding this was so much fun! I like all the things, especially the purple fabric and the little hearts. And these buttons are so fun! Thanks for the happy mail :D
Response: I enjoyed winding the yarn and putting the stuff! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: OMG!!!!! They are WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! I am so impressed. I love them all. I think my favorite are the star fish and the dolphin, but it really is hard to decide. They will all be displayed with pride in a special place. They cheer me right up!!! :) I hope you like mine ... Yours are so damn detailed. Mine are smaller, but I think yours have probably taken you longer!!
Response: Glad you like them and I love making things tiny. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: What a wonderfully creepily sweet little doll! I am over the moon for her. She will look so nice next to my other Halloweeny dolls. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with me. I absolutely love it!
Response: Thanks for rating and heart. I love making creepy dolls. She was my favorite.
Comment: they are really beautiful!! you found mermaid material i haven't seen before!!! yay me! Love them..where did you get the turtle bead? i would like to find some for a different project im working on. thanks for trading with me! :)
Response: Thanks for rating and heart. I think I got turtle bead from one of group on Facebook "Craft item destash for those who aren't cray cray"
Comment: Very creative on the patches! YES I do love the frog print fabric, thanks so much!! I'm so sorry about your dad and I understand what you have been thru lately and do hope for the best for you! Sending hugs! Thank you!!
Response: Thank you for rating and understanding. I do hope I will get back to swapping near future when I am ready.
Comment: Thank-you! Yes-I do always love getting fabric and buttons! :) I'm sorry I forgot to rate sooner. Actually, it was the person I sent to having also forgotten (!) and just now rating me that reminded me about it! :p
Comment: LOVE my bag, it came out great!!!! The quote on the flap of the bag is actually from one of my favorite of Matt Smith's episodes <3 Thank you so much, I will use the bag and show it off with pride. :)
Comment: This is perhaps the most adorable patch I've ever received:) Thanks so much. The postage was crazy. I believe it was because of the un-uniform thickness that the rate was not regular postage. I'd put a piece of corrugated cardboard along side it to make the thickness uniform and affix my own postage and drop it in a post box. A lot of times the postal worker don't know what is allowed and err on the side of the most expensive. Personally I think they over charged even at how it was sent, as there was not more than a 1/4 inch variance which is the maximum allowed as described on the USPS site.
Comment: You are very lucky to be able to sew!!! Sewing is something that I have never been able to figure out... Now Altered art is something I love, That has been my main focus lately. Thanks for sharing you ideas with me.
Response: I do love altered art too and i like to altered matchboxes. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: WOW! Package arrived today and I just cracked it open...AWESOME! Lots of fun goodies. I'm not sure where you found all those buttons. This is one crazy assortment. It's going to take me a while to figure out what to do with it all. Thanks for the amazing swap.
Response: I got most of the buttons from my sister and she used to work for fabric store for over 30 years before she retired. Every time I visit her I will look thru stuff together and she will give me some buttons, fabric, sewing goodies. Glad you like your first swap thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the patches. I love teddybears and knowing the bear patch is signing hi in ASL and that you're deaf makes it even more special :) I hope you're all settled in from your move. Moving can be rough!
Comment: Thank you very much for all the beautiful patches! I love the twilight cover ones, so cool! Thanks for all the extras you sent along too, they'll come in handy for the new patches I'm making :)
Response: I am glad that we had that private swap and I will be glad to do it again someday as it was fun to get surprises like opening a gift on Christmas day and not know what will they be like!
Comment: I love this bug! What a cute little ladybug you made for me. Her sweet face, little bow, button spots and beaded legs are just adorable. Thank you so much.
Thanks also for the cute notecards. They always come in handy.
Comment: Oh wow, if I could give more than one heart I would! I love the "Frida" doll you made for me! You are so talented! Her clothes are perfect! Thank you so much for doing this private swap with me, I hope you're as happy with what I sent you as you did for me! THANK YOU!!!

Response: We do have similar interest and glad you like it.
Comment: Thank you for all the pretty heart stickers. You're right, I love the button! I am definitely a button person. Lol I'll be able to use the heart stickers in my card making and to decorate envies. Happy swapping.
Comment: Hi Judaline. The glue you used worked perfectly. You also used very neat beads. They are on headpins( which I happen to love, and will make charms out of some of them) and I think most people use the corsage stickpins to put their beads on. Either way, I love them!! Thank you :)
Comment: Wow, so pretty! These are gorgeous, I am amazed at the detail that you put into these patches! I especially love the colorful sun and the striking flowers patches. Thanks!
Response: Thank you they were my first ones to make for Teesha and I am falling in love with them because it is take not too much time to make one patch and it is exciting to see how it developed after starting one layers.
Comment: This hot lips dotee is adorable. I can't wait to hang it up so I can admire it over and over again. Please let your sister know I appreciate the hearts. It's my favorite shape and I use hearts alot. Thank you for this super nice package. Bonnie
Response: My sister is watching us from above! She will be happy that they are in good use as she loved crafts.
Comment: WOW!! how did you manage to get so much in this little box? LOL I was thrilled, there is so much I can use and share with my 17 year old granddaughter who is also into crafts. I love the little box. Did you know I collect boxes? My sewing/craft room is full of them, all sizes filled with all my knick knacks. thank you so much, now I wonder if I sent enough in my box. ha ha
Response: Glad that you like them! I didn't know that you collect boxes!
Comment: What a cute dotee - I loved the pointy ears and what looked like vintage fabric? I understand about the addressing mistake and it's good that the PO returned it to you so it wasn't "lost" forever. Thanks again for doing the private swap with me.
Comment: Dear Judaline:
Thank you for the cute Gingerbread Dotee Doll couple. I just received the mail and opened the package up. I have them on my Christmas tree with my other handmade gingerbread boys and girls ornaments. Thanks again and have a enjoy the upcoming holidays.
Bye the way, if interested, I'm hosting my first swap. The swap is making spool Dolls. I hope that you would be interested in joining the group. If interested go to the swaps listing and highlight either on dolls, crafts, or painting and look for Spool Dolls. I have a brief description and where to look to get inspiration and ideals on the swap
Response: I am glad that you liked them. I am on the watchlist for your spool swap to make sure that I will have time for that in Jan but more likely I will be joining because I have some wooden spools here.
