Comment: Thank you for all the great flora items! I'm already thinking of ways to use the giant sticker. We were without power for about 5 days during the snow storms but we have a gas fireplace and lots of blankets, It got down to 40s indoors but we survived and learned a few things that might help next winter!
Response: Brr, we had thaose temps happen one winter day a couple years ago, it killed my succulents and we had to spring for emergency repair... Glad you enjoyed my sendings and thanks for the kind and hearty rating!

Comment: 😍😍😍😍OMG, I am the lucky recipient of your amazing Peanuts arch page?!! Yay! Party time indeed! It is even more beautiful in person! I am definitely trying that technique! It reminds me of something similar I used to do with inks on acetate with glossy paper. Thank you SO much! ❤️❤️❤️ And thanks for the fun bear card! So funny that I have the same deck somewhere up in the attic that I am hoarding. 😂😍
Response: Yay! But isn't the hoarding instinct a funny old thing? I am hatefully moving stashes and hoarded stuff at the moment to facilitate some project the Mr is doing...Knowing full well 98%of it can go, just have to sort. Ugh, sorting stuff sucks. Anywho...So glad you likey...I sure had fun putting it together. Thanks for the hearty! And now we bind them all up..? Do we know how?

Comment: Thank you for your collaged vellum face. It's interesting with all it's layers. Unfortunately the art on the envelope is missing.
Response: As @blueseabliss pionted out to me, I didn't follow the directions re the art on the envelope... I did put stickers that I created from my own art on them, but she felt that didn.t qualify... I wouldn't be surprised if it/they didn't stick through the long jorney! Thank you for rating a five anyway!

snager rated for MA: Envelope and ATC on Apr 24, 2019
5
rating
Comment: The prompt said to use this pink/green color scheme, but Mamabird clearly read my profile to make me something more custom (black + rainbow + bugs) and that's way too specific to be a coincidence, so I give it a A+! The bug stamps look SO good on the metallic rainbow envelope! and the matching washi tape holding the atc in the card was a nice touch. Message me if the bug stamp was hand made, cause it's super cute!
Response: To be honest I think I may have confused swaps and missed the color scheme... I did read your preferences and am glad that it brought you some happy! That bug stamp is me made, I am so glad you liked it, and everything... many thanks for the very kind and hearty!

Comment: Wowzers Carroll! What a way cool ATC! You solved the problem of putting a torso and shoulders and arms on a narrow space with the clever articulated arms. I wish I had thought of that. I don't have any of those teeny tiny brads but I should get some. And I'm pleased that I have one of your new stickers on the envelope. Maybe I'll collect a whole set of them, if I don't just incorporate them all into other art. Thanks for a great Part 2 of this wack-o swap (most Exquisite Corpse ATC sets run the landscape orientation).
Response: I felt like I went out on a limb with this one, wink wink! I find it's really the doing that is the fun part with these exquisite corpses... Thanks for the kind and hearty! I will be sure some more stickers come your way!

Funny thing, I received your envelope a few days ago and I immediately propped it up where I could see it and enjoy it, but then I forgot it needed to be rated until last night when it dawned on me and I made a note to get it rated. So, Of course I love the envelope, and I appreciate that you made for me the image of the woman with the golden flame hair which I told you I liked :-) Thank you very much <3

Comment: Wow! What a fabulous postcard you sent me :) It has all my favorite things -- the color purple, glitter, birds, and a quote! I love how you layered the different papers. I have not participated in INCOWRIMO, but I do participate in National Card and Letter Writing Month (April). It is cold here, too, but probably not as cold as there. Is the Vermont stamp actual postage or an artistamp? I love the chicken!
Response: It is so much fun working with someone's profile! Glad you enjoyed it... INCOWRIMO is the same , just International instead of National...I like writing far flung countries. Thanks for the kind and hearty!

I love the theme you chose and all that you have sent to help me express it, and thanks for sending so much :-) I've been racking my brain and mulling over a long and growing list of themes for this swap, trying to settle on just one. You'd have thought I would have already settled on a topic by now, but then you'd be forgetting what a procrastinator I am. and I want to say how much I love the art you made on the envelope! I'm hanging it up in my room to enjoy often.
Response: I too was stymied by the need for a theme so i decided to just collect what came to me and looked good together till it all started shaping up of it's own accord..! Then I just had to name it... Glad you like the envelope, they are a big part of why I do swaps!

Response: I had painted the paper before cutting and folding and applied some glitter to one side with varnish... There was a little bit of glitter floating around so I didn't want to take the chance!

Response: Aww, I like your interpretation! It was a real work of sharing to put this swap together...'bigmamabird' is the pet name my #2 boy gave me as a wee young child, he was 'little peep' and we slept in nests..! This was a good swap, really doing some sharing.. Thanks for your great rating

Today it's all about soup. Thanks for the neat card (:

Comment: Thanks for the cool envelope and awesome Dresden ATC 😋 Bob is one of my favorite characters and he turned out great! I can't wait for the last few books. He needs to finish the series instead of starting a new one which was definitely meh. And the tv show was weird. It wasn't terrible but they changed so much and it just felt strange. Have a great day, Nathan
Response: Yes the show was good only when not comparing to the books...I love Bob! I stopped reading them when my local library cut back the Sci fi section for renovations and then never reinstated it! They just put what they kept of the collection out with the general fiction....I will get back to it eventually. Thanks for the hearty rating.

She seems to be an excellent writer for the young and all those who are meeting life anew. Love the Antidots tangle pattern harboring a Big bee too. And now 3 gorgeous BUG ATCs! Thank you :-) I have another bee sitting on the prettiest background of overlapping petals with teeny white dots outlining, a Striped Cucumber Beetle on an awesome geometric petal, and a Spotted Cucumber Beetle on a white 3D flower against a pink and white spotted sky. Bug Bonanza! I happen to like bugs (from a keep-my-distance perspective). And even the printed marbled paper you included as a backing is so pretty. I enjoyed reading your included note too. I Love the rare lighting storm like you described. I have also watched for hours from a reclining lawn chair the majesty of an entire sky filled with dancing lightning. There was no rain during the light show, only a cool summer breeze, maybe because this is the desert, I don't know. So thanks again for sending an awesome swap!

My daughter did not at all get the train-squashed penny, and left the room. Bwahahaha!

Comment: Oh Carroll! Your Wayang Golek Doll is Wonderful!! I was thrilled (no lie) when I opened the envelope to see what you sent me. I am going to figure out a way to be able to stand her up for the top tier of my desk. What a special surprise! Thank you very much!
Response: Thanks for the kind and hearty rating! Her style of puppets are mounted on a stick, with two more to manipulate the arms. I am so glad she was so well received!

Comment: I feel like I've won the Big Mama Bird Lottery! Your splendid pocket page was also in my homecoming mail stack, but it has taken me a while to savor its contents. And ooh, what wonderful contents they are. From the happy green frog to the touchy-feely heartstrings card; the sweet bunting (now decorating my work space) to the pensive Frida -- everything so artfully created. The full page backing picture was worthy of a swap unto itself, but my most favorite elements are your "curious creature" stickers, your elephant stickers, and the fuck-this-shit ATC which both wowed me with its beauty & cracked me up. The sentiment could be the motto for my life! Thank you Carroll. I'll be savoring & using bits of this swap for a very long time. PS: Yes, the lilacs were abloom in abundance!
Response: Yay! So glad it's been an appreciated packet of creations! I do enjoy putting together these things, they are like birthday presents! Your feedback is a great return of energy. Our lilacs just began opening yesterday. Thanks for the kind and hearty rating!

Comment: I am so glad I realized what swap this was for before I opened it so I could do so carefully. The envelope book is gorgeous, I love the theme you went for. I am going to set it aside for when I start my next smashbook because it will be *perfect* for tucking little things into. (The bits you were tucked in were neat too, but the envelop itself was the best) thank you.
Response: So glad you liked it, the theme appeared with the cool night time photos in a magazine! I like how it came out...but when I was putting stuff in the pockets the inspiration had trickled away, so I kept it simple...Simple is also good! Thanks for the kind and hearty rating!

Response: Yeah, the beetle had a more prominent position at first, it's legs were along a torso-like area, but the whole design shifted from there. The dude is from some kind of marketing image year book...Thanks for the kind and hearty rating! Did you catch lilac blooming time?

Comment: Hi Carroll :-) . . . Thank you for sending me such a lovely postcard. I love the leaves you call your "go-to" leaves . . . The weather here has gone from hot, to a few weeks of fall where we actually get to open doors and windows, to quite chilly for this area, what we call winter anyway, 40s to 50s. Sometimes we get freezing at night, and once in a while we even get a couple of inches of snow in late winter!
Response: Glad you liked it! We have been having pretty nice weather but today I guess we start getting the rains...It is weird not having snow yet, but I'm sure we'll get it soon! Thanks for the kind words and hearty rating! Have a great day...

Comment: It did find me, safe and sound. Actually, it came while I was out of town for a few days and my friend who was taking care of my house and pets brought it in from the mailbox. She said it creeped her out when she put her hand in the box and felt it (the little strip of corrugated cardboard.) She told me that it was the creppiest postcard she had ever seen (and she loved it!) So...I guess it fit the bill just fine! It is extremely dark and eerie and I just love it, too. Thank you so much for sending it to me. :)
