Comment: Its here ~ hooray! That mobile is excellent, something I have wanted for a long time. I also love the beads and the fiber. Thanks for sending all of this, and I'm sorry that it took me so long to get to the PO.
Response: Yay! I am so glad you like what I made. I made myself one that goes floor to ceiling. Thanks for the heart rate.
Response: I sent you a web link to the rock tumbler we agreed on swapping. It was used ONE time. I sent 2 extra packs of 2 diff grades of grit along with a box of grit unopened. EVERYTHING agreed upon for this private swap. Were you expecting extras?
Comment: What a wonderful way to come home from work... getting 2 packages from you for this swap! The wind chime you made for me is absolutely beautiful. I'm putting it up in my living room :) The rubbers stamps are awesome and I can't wait to use them. The flower seeds... a mix especially for The Bees is so close to my heart! The baby is awesome and we love him :-D and... the yarn you chose for your gloves is so nice. I'm gonna get started on them tonight :) Thanks so much for a awesome swap. Yours will be heading out in the not too distant future my friend : ) Much love to you.
Response: What a great review! I am beyond thrilled you are happy with everything I made or chose for you in this pvt swap. I love that you will now be a Mom to a Marimo! Don't forget to give him a bath now and again. Thanks for a fun swap and heart rate~
Comment: This package brought tears to my eyes. You are so incredibly generous and thoughtful. I am in love with everything - the cute T-shirt (sending you a pic of me wearing it in the snow), the super cute apron (cannot properly express my intense love for it), cute socks, corks, paper, ephemera, NAPKINS GALORE (I stared at each one for way too long), the junky journal all ready for me to play with (you did the most gruelling part for me!), jewelry bits, etc. I cannot thank you enough. Ryker was with me and saw the army guy and exclaimed, "she sent something for me!" Yep, beaming ear to ear he grabbed it , took it upstairs, and introduced him to his other army guys. Lol The only thing more amazing than this package is your friendship. Love your guts forever. â¤â¤â¤â¤
Response: Awww Honey your the best! I now have cleaned out drawers! I did make that journal and I knew you liked making art journals so it found the perfect home. I am sincere when I say my things couldn't have found a better home. Now you have a stash! Thanks for the incredible rant and heart rate my friend. Love you GOBBS & Oodles!
Comment: You sent me above and beyond what was discussed! I thought you would send me a few ~ you sent a LARGE PIZZA box full of paper goodness! I thought you were joking! You're are so generous, too much! Let me know if you want me to send some of this back to you, I feel too spoiled, too indulged! I just can't stop smiling. ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜
Response: Noooo! That is for you me Sweet! Now you can play with paper swaps and have stuff to choose from. You needed a stash! I am so glad you're happy. Enjoy my friend. Thanks for the heart rate.
Comment: First let me thank you for inviting me to this group. I already love all the swaps. And then to have you as a partner to send me a wonderful whimsey jar filled with fun! But, and I hope you don't mind, I adore the map you sent. Cannot ever get enough maps.
Response: I like maps too! teehee. I'm glad you like everything and thanks for the heart rate!
Comment: Wheeee! I just got your box, and it is aMAZing! Wow, when you mentioned that dress, I had no idea how pretty it would be. I don't know if I can cut it up, tbh. Might have to see if I can find a tiny friend who could fit into it! Thank you so much <3
Response: I am glad you liked the items I sent your way. Have fun! Thanks for the heart rate my Dear~
Comment: I love my Zombie! I named him Corpsey Shufflington. He is my very favorite item. If there is a fire, I will grab my kids and Corpsey!

Response: Thank you so much for the review and the heart rate~
Comment: A treasure box full of hand picked goodness. I loved going through it and squealing with each new thing. I am going to have so much fun using all the different papers. I have never seen bingo cards like that, freaking out! Brail papers, gelli plate paper, box o'buttons, everything is wonderful. I haven't shown my daughter yet but she is going to freak out too when she sees the fairy door and little fairy to go in our new fairy garden. Thank you bestie. Hugs!
Response: YEAH!!! You sounds happy and that makes me happy! I'm glad you like your box of goodness~ Enjoy my Sweet. Thanks for the review and heart rate!!
Comment: I am throwing hearts around like confetti! I love my shabby chic lamps! You did such a beautiful job on both of them. I can't even pick a favorite. One is going in my craft room and the other in my family room (the second one will match perfectly). You do such amazing work. I love all the lace and flowers. And the beading on the pink one is to die for. Also, thank you for the initial magnet. It is awesome! I will cherish these forever. Thank you! Smooches! ðŸ˜˜ðŸ˜˜ðŸ˜˜
Response: I am thrilled you love your lamp-shades! And to know they will actually be displayed gives me such a thrill!

Response: You are so welcome! You have a great wishlist to go from~ thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: I cannot even believe how lucky I am to get you as a swap buddy two times in a row. I adore my beach house. The shell roof is beyond magnificent! And is that a little shark tooth? It looks like one! LOVE! I adore the altered domino and all my extras. Thank you so much! It is like Christmas morning opening swaps from you. You put so much love and care into each swap. P.S. I am going to spoil your butt off!
Response: Yes that is a sharks tooth on there. I found it on a beach walk a few weeks ago.
Ya know, half of the love of swapping to me is reviews such as yours. It fills my heart with joy that you appreciate what goes into my swaps. I love your reviews so much! Thanks for the heart rate my new friend~
Comment: OH. MY. GEESH! I wish I could send you a video of myself opening the box so you can grasp the full extent of my excitement. I love my assemblage doll! Literally obsessed with her! She is even magnetic for easy display! Thank you for personalizing her. This has been one of my favorite swaps and I am so lucky to have a piece of your art. Thank you for the extra jewelry bits too! You know me so well (not really), but you seem too! Crossing my fingers that we swap again! Thank you! â¤â¤
Response: ~Whew! I am so glad that you love her!~ A video would be cool! lol Thanks so much for the awesome rave and the heart rate too!
Comment: Your creepy goat baby girl toddler seems to be having a fun time just chillin'. hehe... I love the striped outfit best. Thank you for the delightful profile surprises. I especially like the squashed fairies and the fruity stamps. :) Have a nice weekend!
Response: Thank you so much Honey! I am glad you like yer schtuff. Thanks for the heart rate too!!!!
Response: Not only did I send the required $5.00 gift, but I spent $11.00 on rubber stamps. Being a scrapbooker and card maker I thought you could use them. Along with the double the cost required NIP stamps, I sent heirloom squash seeds, a fridge magnet made by me, a package of cup-cake recipe cards in a box, used stamps, currency from another country, Florida seashells, an amethyst crystal, and feathers from my parrot. ALL these items were on your wishlist~ I sent you wayyy above and beyond for this swap! Your rating on this of no heart just breaks my heart that you don't appreciate all the extra gifts sent. You my dear are a very unkind person with a sucky ass rating system! IF there is a next time, bet your bottom dollar I send the absolute minimum required!!
Comment: Loved this swap! You picked the absolute BEST item to sent naked, even if the PO didn't agree! Thank you SO MUCH for the vintage cookbook. It is exactly the type of thing I collect. Thanks, too, for the extra goodies which will add to my already burgeoning stack of ephemera! Many hearts to you! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Response: Dang PO! I am glad I can add to your collection and will keep an eye out for more for you. Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: Perfect level of creepy! Love my clown so much. He's a welcome addition to my collection. Thank you!
Response: I found your card and note on the table when I got home from the PO. So sorry it didn't have that in there! I am happy he arrived there in one piece and that you like him!!! Thanks for the heart rate~!
Comment: Thank you thank you thank you!!! You absolutely made my day!! I love it!!! You did such a great job, she is so stinking cute!!! I think that it my favorite thing that I have recieved from a swap thus far from this site. I have already found a home for her. Thank you again!!!!
Response: Awww you are so sweet! I am so happy you like her. I had fun making her with Easter colors. Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: OMGosh---what an inspiration to make a hand mirror from the spoon. I'll have to steal (I mean borrow that idea!) I about fell over when I saw the mannequin head...lol! I love it! I made a Medusa head for Halloween with snakes and drilled holes in it for suckers. All of the extras were amazing and will be sure to end up on future projects:) Thank you for hosting a fun swap and sending something so wonderful!
Response: I am so glad you didn't mind a head start on a project. Pun intended. Be sure to send me a picture when you're done. Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: OMFG! Did I hit the lucky lotto when I got you as a partner or what?! Wonderful package with not one, but two new projects to work up. And the granite clay! Wow, speechless on that one too. Top that off with an Alabama Greatest Hits CD and vintage Florida postcard. You certainly know how to make a girl's day!

Comment: Ohhhh, I so enjoy being on the receiving end of your creative swaps! You described the magnifying glass perfectly and I love it. The "BC" doll is already hanging on my wall:) She is perfect with her bright blue hair! I don't want to put the skeleton key down...the weight and aged texture feels so comforting.

Comment: Absolutely wonderful woodland creature! She is great just what I had in mind. Creative packing too lol ; )
Response: I'm glad you like it. Just spray mist the plants about once a month or leave it in the bathroom when you tale a hot shower so it gets some steam to keep the plants alive.
Thanks for the heart rate.
Comment: OH1 what a wonderful beautiful gift. It arrived today when it is 5 degrees below zero now and expecting 1-6 inches snow tomorrow for Thanksgiving. Love the drift matches my reclaimed wood furniture I have in my craft area. Had to decide where I could hang it where the cats couldn't climb up and play with it! And found the perfect place in doorway-large opening between the living room and my craft porch. It is a great souviner of Florida_thanks so much for sharing your day at the beach with me-such pretty shells and the way you looped it all together! I'll have to look at the map again when I look up your address to see where you are-almost expected to see an X on it! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
Response: I am so happy you like it! I had a blast gathering the shells and putting it together. I liked it so much I made one for myself, but a smaller version. I really was going to mark my location with an X, but didn't want to ruin it in case you wanted to use it for something. Thank you for the heart rate and Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas to you!
Comment: You had a tuff one my dear. Am sorry that you weren't pleased. I like the concept and may try to make one. Hope you receive something that you like. Thanks for the supplies however, I am confused with that as well.
Comment: Oh my goodness! You can be my swap partner anytime, RyeRye - hope I have the opportunity to reciprocate sometime. I love the hanging alt art sign...and the Edward Gorey card...and all the ephemera. A big thanks and 100 hearts!

Response: Thrilled to death you like the dolls. I couldn't make up my mind which one to send so i just wound up sending them both. I was hoping you like them. The wings.....I 'think' on that doll I used ummmmmm liquid glass. Thanks for the great comments and the heart rate~
Comment: Awe I love my peeing monkey Valentine! Bwahaha! Thanks so much, the packaging was perfect. So glad your Dad and the others also got to enjoy it. Wow kids' books in the Netherlands are more liberal than here. Or is that the Netherregions?

Thanks for the heart rate my friend~
Comment: WooHoo, Santa (aka RyeRye) came early to my house! Of course I couldn't wait until Christmas to open this over stuffed box. There is soooooo much. The wind chimes are the best gift EVER! My kitchen is primarily black and white so they fit perfectly...and the sound the chimes make? Holy cow, I would have never thought they would sound that amazing! The altered book publication and the book to alter have got me really excited about trying something new. Buttons, and fibers, and fabrics, and ribbons, and a GORGEOUS bracelet that fits perfectly, the map, the Grande Reserve box, wow! Everything in this happy box was amazing, it was like Christmas going through it all, wait, it IS Christmas and I scored:) Thank you from the bottom of my heart, seriously, you are a wonderful friend and a above (and beyond) swapper. Everyone should go to your Etsy store and check out those chimes...they are supercallafragalistic!!!
Response: MERRY CHRISTMAS Bitched! You KNOW I absolutely adore you right?!! I loved putting a package together for you for the Holiday. I know that I am repsonsible for getting you into the whole paper crafting thing, so I thought by sending the blank book to alter it may take you in a whole new direction that you can hate me for later! lol AS IF! I hope you get a breeze in your kitchen for them wind chimes. Maybe hang it below an air duct. Angels dance to that sound I swear it sounds so purdy. Thanks for the raving review! And thanks for the heart rate my dear, dear friend.
Comment: OMG the Zombie is here and this has got to be the best creation i have recvd as of yet - did i say i really really am honored to have him thanks many times and
did you sculpt his head - feet - and hands
this is heart and more if i could he is going front and center and he can hang right on the wall by me in my studio cause of the wood back - latter he will go the the glass curio cabinet to stay safer - have you posted his picture just everywhere? I saw some dolls made on boards but yours out does any i have seen you are truly and artist
Response: Oh honey thank you so much for that fabulous review! Yup, all the clay pieces I sculpted. His feet are glow in the dark paint but not sure how much they glow? I have not posted him any where and I totally forgot to take a pic of him. I named him Ernie. I am so happy he found a great home. Sounds like you'll take great care of him. His head moves back and forth too I believe. Thanks for the heart rate!!!
Comment: Finally arrived! Very pretty. Not sure it will fit without losing weight but definitely a dress I hope to wear at some point. Good trade! Thanks for the extras too. Especially the charm, it's lovely!
Response: I am glad you like the dress. I found it to be really well made. I bet you'll look just smashing it it. Great incentive right~ Thanks for the trade and the heart rate!
Comment: OMG!! i just received the final box for our swap. I cannot believe how generous and amazing this swap has been. You are such a wonderful swapper Rye Rye. You have went above and beyond anything I ever expected.

Response: Oh thank you so much for the kind words and fabulous heart rate. I really am happy you like the stuff I crammed in that box for you. lol Be careful with them cards. It's a thin line.
Comment: Love the HUGE puzzle piece! Wow I didn't know they came that big. Very cute. and Love that I can hang it up. I will put the green dangly bit with it too. Also, the awesome wind chimes!

Comment: WOW! The biggest box I've ever received from a swap was on my porch when I came home late last night! I thought it was the computer parts I'd ordered, so I didn't open it til today! What a cute and ultra-spooky bouquet! My son and I love it so much it is sitting at the entrance to our house so we can admire it! Also, it glows in the dark! SO COOL! And all the extras are soooo sweet! You're the best!
Response: I am really happy you like everything. I truly wasn't going to part with that bouquet, but I made it for you I kept telling myself. :) Thanks so much for the glowing comments and the heart rate~ Happy Halloween hon.

Response: I am so happy you like the things that I made just for you and that the teddy bear is loved. Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: This might be the creepiest thing I have ever seen. I am not sure I want him facing toward the room! EEeeekkk! I love him, even though he scares the pee outta me. :D Is that real human hair?
Response: I couldn't wait to get him out of the house! lol. Human hair? Ummmm I'll never tell. lol. We are all getting a good hard laugh out of it creeping you out! I did my job.lol. Thanks for the heart rate! btw his name is Eugene.
Comment: Wow, wow, wow!!! What an amazing package. If all you had done was send the doll it would have been an amazing package, but to include the rug and the hat (which I know I will need this winter) was just gravy, gravy made with foie gras and truffles (yes it sounds gross, but very expensive). I can't thank you enough for the best package I have ever received here on swap-bot.
Response: Wow, thanks for the great comments! I loved putting this swap together for you. Just loved it. That doll gave my friend a nightmare. lol. Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: She is amazingly cool! I LOVE the art doll you made!! It is so cool to have something like this made especially for me!! Also thanks for all the bath bombs and earrings! Thanks so much, would love to swap again anytime! :D
Response: I really liked her in the end. Thanks for giving me the proper direction on what you wanted. After that it was a breeze. She came out a colorful little monster that.s for sure. It was great swapping with you! Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: Your fabulous parcel arrived today!!! You are such an wonderful friend to include the Helen Steiner Rice calender - I love her quotes - it is now on my desk so I can read it every day. The faces are awesome and will make some beautiful Button Fairies. You deserve a ton of hearts - thank you so much for swapping with me. I also love the nautical maps - I have crossed Lake Ontario and went through the Welland Canal into Lake Erie on my Dad's 30' boat - would love to cruise the ocean with you sometime. Again, thanks for everything, Donna Lee
Response: I am so glad that I could help the cause. You'll have to take pictures for me to see a finished fairy. Thanks for the wonderful comments and for the heart rate my friend~

I absolutely love him with all of my heart and will cherish him forever! You are a god send and I love you!!!

Response: I am happy I could lift your spirits darlin! I love how it tuned out to match so well. Thanks for doing this PVT swap with me. Thank you for the heart rate hon~
Comment: Twice blessed, I got you as a partner for January and now October. I have decided that part of the fun of getting you as a partner is what you will wrap the package in. I have had soda cartons, wallpaper and now oatmeal boxes and paper bags. I love you so much. You always make me laugh.
Response: I swear I recycle everything known to man. I am glad you find it amusing. Ned does not when he looks at the stack of odd boxes I save. Thanks for the heart rate Ayne!!
Comment: I'm a dope! I am so sorry for rating so late on this, but he is WONDERFUL! Oh my goodness, when we kept unwrapping we had everyone's attention at my MIL's and everyone was waiting for the unveiling HAHA! By time we left we had to double check we still had him, because my MIL was determined to steal him for her garden, thanks again!
Response: I'm glad he finally made it home. I didn't spray a cleqr coat on him so you will need to do that b4 he gets in the weather. Thanks for the heart rate and cute unveiling story~

Comment: Loooove the duckies you made! The cupcake duck is all sorts of adorable! I love the packaging too (and it was priceless watching my rather inept mail lady spend about 5 minutes trying to shove it in the mail box before finally giving up and tossing it on the porch, ha). Thanks for the great ducks and extras!
Response: Cute swap idea. I really enjoyed altering them for ya. Thanks for the heart rate hon~

Response: yeah! Bunny made it home. I WAS going to spray him with a strong coffee mixture, but didn't want you to think I was sending durdy stuff. Feel free to spray away for that old effect. I really had a great time putting this swap together for you. Let's do it again soon. Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: I feel like I just got a big old snuggly hug. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. What a wonderful 100th Swap package. I love the scarf that goes with my hat and the new hat with optional flower. I already used the cuddly poncho outside smoking. It feels like I am being hugged when I wear it, I love it. The Queen cards, clips, pencils and lip balm are so nice. The little oil warmer will make my house smell heavenly and Michael loves that. Seriously you went way overboard my friend....thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am in awe of your generosity, you rock!!!!! Love you, Sissy J

April 1, 2011 (no foolin' around)
I got back from AZ this evening and got all my week's mail delivered, opened up the big mailbox and there was another HUGE box in there from YOU!!! Whahoo! It was such a nice treat after a long and tiring week. I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything. Good Gawd woman, did you send me your entire ribbon supply? I LOVE the cowfish!! They are so cute I don't know if I actually want to bling them, I just want to have a mobile made of them in their natural state. But I will take more looks at them this weekend and maybe can convince myself to color them. They are adorable. Gotta make sure my cat doesn't get hold of them and chew them up! They smell like something a cat would like. MMMM!
Crap woman, you sent me ANOTHER beautiful neck cuff (I LOVE the accent of the turqouise cool fiber, that is a color that looks good on me), I think it was the one on your flickr I was debating on cuz I loved it too. And that cool hat!! I will need to figure out how to wear it properly.
More in the box covered in awesome sauce: THE RABBIT!!!! I LURVES the living daylights out of my new funky rabbit! You are so talented, I just want to take the bunny to bed and cuddle with him/her, I love the funkiness of the design and I am so honored to have it. You could sell those you know. Very clever, AND I recognized one of the fabrics I sent! That makes it even more kewl. Thank you thank you.
I will definitely sit on the toilet doing the puzzles, I need brain exercise big time. Those Queen cards are a hoot, very cool ephemera. And all that ribbon, I am goign to have to make a cool journal page or something out of it. I am really into art journaling at the moment and using up crap for designing funky pages.
Oh what else, I am super tired so if I miss mentioning something I will let you know when I get to oggle it all again.
You rock, goat girl.
Response: And we all know you are impossible to please so I guess I majorly SCORED! I am so happy that you like it Sue. Anything for you.
Thanks for the heart rate my dear friend.
Comment: I love Love LOVE my voodoo doll! Especially the velvet-y bits and the sprig of hair on top. One of the nicest things I've gotten, it shall perch on a shelf of honor. Thank you RyeRye! (also, I was super impressed with your creative packaging - and the way you made your tape into "plaid!")

Comment: Oh my god...how much do I *love* this doll you sent me? She is absolutely beautiful--thank you so much! The colors are just gorgeous, and I will always think of you when I look at her.
It sucks that the postal service has been so evil, but I truly truly appreciate the multiple packages you've been sending. I love the vinyl envelopes, too, and I am hoarding them greedily because I may not be able to send them away. Thanks again RyeRye! big hearts to you.
Response: Awww you are so welcome. This lil simple T-shirt swap turned into a huge swap for us both~ lol
I am glad it did because I also love the doll and ALL the wonderful items you sent to me.
I really look forward to swapping with you again.
Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: OMFingG lady this is incredible! I absolutely love her!!! <3 You did a really fantastic job and I love the different laces you used (especially on her dress)... I took mine a different embroidered plushie route, but I hope she will be appreciated just as much as I am loving yours. She is already proudly displayed on my bookshelf in the living room. Love it so so much!!!
Response: Yeah~ She was my first 'real' sewing job and my first attempt at a Dio De Los doll. It was hard parting with her, but knowing she is being proudly displayed makes me smile BIG!
Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: Such creativity! The package, the extras and the cute little birdhouse. Thanks so much. I think you have started something. I LOVE the Victorian Tradiitions catalog. I immediately called or order one. I also cut out many pictures to use in my books and journals. The little cookbook was so timely. I am reading Julie & Julia and just finished the section where she is cooking meals with lobster and discussing the carnage of different methods of preparing them. :) Thanks for all the goodies.
Response: Yeah~ You got your 'stuff.' I love shipping in odd containers when I can. After reading your profile I knew you'd love that magazine for the images. I had a hard time letting go of that issue. lol
Thanks for the heart rate~
Comment: Yumpin' Yehosiphat! I just got your package...I mean plural, packages, with an S. Sheesh RyeRye it was like Christmas, the crap just kept coming and coming and coming (heh). Woweee, now I have all these things to fondle. I thought you were just supposed to send me a couple mermaid charms and you sent me your entire craft room! Whoohoo! I love, love love it all! Now I need to retaliate because the stuff I sent you isn't worth anywhere as all this :o) Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness, and packaging up all the little surprises.
Response: Xmas is fun everyday~
I am so happy you are pleased with the items I chose for you. I had fun doing it. You've been bunches of fun to mess with on SB too!
Thank you so much for the heart rate my friend.
Comment: I love, love, love my mystery gifts!! You are so creative. I love to store pens in cans and I have never seen a collaged can before! I just had a ball oggling each and every little object you glued onto it. Lots of stuff, neato!! And then, the little nature treasure cigar box, how very cool!! I love how you used the birch bark on the crafts. I also love to collect little rocks and feathers and pieces of nature (ok, jerkified tree frogs and dragonflies and bats that I have found trapped in a door jam or that got locked in the garage...) and this is perfect for a little collection. You're a sweet partner. Oh, and that RED feather is off of your pet bird interrobang it must be so gorgeous!!!
Response: I just loved working on those things for you. I am so fond of the earthy look of birch bark. Sounds like the altered cigar box will be a flattened bug tomb. Very.....cool.
Thanks bunches for a fun swap & of coarse the heart rate as well.
Comment: Thank you so much, I LOVED your package :-D The bookmark is very creative and pretty and the rune chain is such a generous extra and shows that you really took time out to read my profile. My most heartfelt thanks for this wonderful swap.

Thanks for the heart rate!

Comment: OOOOH she is the cutest little Full Moon Fairy I have ever seen! I cannot believe that durn three-legged cat was going to eat her. You know it's a full moon tonight, right? At 11:00 PM she is going under a little lamp. At midnight I expect to get the wildest earful of down- and -dirty skinny ever! She is going to dish the dirt on all the craziness she has seen since the last full moon. Can't wait. And also can't wait to see you, Darlin! Countin the days till we is dishin together!

Response: I agree. No two are ever alike and they just take on their own personality. I enjoyed making her for you.
Thanks for the heart rate!
Comment: This button fairy is wonderful. I can tell you put a lot of creative effort into making this for me. I love the use of the feather. She makes me think of the Ghost of Christmas Past from 'A Christmas Carol'. Now I will find a place of honor for her on our tree. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
Response: I am so happy you like it! I made one for myself as well. Thanks for the heart rate!

Response: Have it at! lol
Thanks for the heart rate!
Comment: Received the stash! There are some definite keepers in there. I especially like the Wild, wild, woman button and the "Making Waves" note pad. The napkins will be great for collage, etc. Buttons are always great and the ones you threw in have great "personality". Thanks!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoy your new stuff.
Thanks for the heart rate!
Comment: OH - MY - GOD!!! I am a superhero! I am utterly delighted with the job you did on my self doll. I love my sparkly boots and gloves, and the big h on my chest. The fishnet and lace is a riot too. Damn I look good. I need this outfit in my real size for those days I need a pick me up. You are amazing!
Response: You so are my SUPERERO!
Thanks for the heart rate my dear friend!
Comment: Neat hair, and i liked the moon face on the the cloud body. It was very creative to use the lace as a skirt! (sorry that I couldnt leave a heart @ first and the bad spelling! I was in a hurry cause my internet does not work during rain.... and that is all it has done!)
Comment: Wow! That's a very scary button fairy! Now I need to go hunt for a place to display him? her? IT! , because the refrigerators here in germany have a second door over them. Another reason why I miss my old big, giant, beautiful 70's avocado green fridge so dearly!
Response: IT is scarey isn't it! Glad to have it gone from here! argggg
Thanks for the heart rate!
Comment: This is the work of no amateur. It is wonderful. I love the colors and textures used. Very creative. The contents are special as well with the neat cutout coin pendant. Thank you so much, I Love it! Thanks again RyeRye.

Got my second package yesterday! What a mixture of things! It's great! Thanks so much!
Comment: I loved the story behind why you made the ATC you did. Your ATC was great especially for a first timer. I love the way the "night" is peeking out through the trees because of how you used the black background and then staggerred the nighttime tree across it...that was such a creative idea, thank you so much for sharing! Hugs, Joanne
P.S. I also LOVED this idea for a swap, the paranormal has always been a fascination of mine!
Response: Whew! I am thrilled you like my first ATC! I swore I would never make one but now see why they are popular! TY for the heart rate my sweet skittle!

Thank you so much for the great rating too!
Comment: This beyond extra special. This is Fantabulous. You sent an entire box of goodies. I just kept on pulling one thing after another out of it. Wow you are so generous. I am just tickled to death about the alphabet blocks. Mr Monster fishy is right at home in my craft room. I really needed the energy mints. Fabric, tea, ribbons & trim, staionary, glitter glue, beautiful silkyfabric. You even sent a decorated goodie box inside the box full of goodie. You have well and truly spoiled me. Knocked my socks off so far they are probably on your doorstep in Florida.
Response: Found! Socks on doorway!
Thrilled to crap you are happy. You have been so wonderful to this ditzy newbie you deserved all of it.
That fishy is my fav craft project to make.
Thanks for that awesome rating!
