Comment: uuuuuuh, this dotee doll had a quite troubled travelroute, so it seems. The package was very crunchy and damaged. But thank god the dotee doll was okay! So cute, thank you! I have thought about this holiday, too, but I couldn't find a way to realize it. You have done it on the great way! I love it, my thought were only by the backyard of a house. This is surely because I use my english language so less time :-/
Response: Thanks for the heart.... I'm glad it made there ok.
Comment: Thank you for the adorable cat! The extras are also appreciated (especially the well chosen dictionary bit). I'm embarrassingly behind in my letter writing at the moment but I look forward to taking a naptime to reply to your lovely letter as well. :)
Response: Thanks for the heart... have a great day. I remember those days longing for nap time. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful dotee for me and thank you for making one for my daughter. My ears were ringing for about 5 minutes after the squeals of delight from her. And thank you for including something for my son. Hotel For Dogs is one of his favorite movies so the little puppy was perfect. Thank you again for being so thoughtful. :o)
Response: Thanks for the heart, and your very welcome. I'm glad the kids liked their goodies! Have a great day.
Comment: I love the skeleton doll so much! I just made one (I broke down and bought the pattern because I'm lazy) for a Halloween swap. Yours is so soft and cuddly! Thank you so much! I now officially have a Shannon Collar collection! Squeee!

Response: Thanks for the heart! I'm glad you liked her, she was fun to make. Be expecting another package soon, you were my partner for a dotee swap! Have a great day!
Comment: Shannon, My dotee is wonderful, you did a such a great job on it. You must have met me somewhere because she looks just like me. Grandmaw Lois will watch over her growing flock of dotees. Thank you so much she is wonderful and I will cherish her. Hugs to you
Response: Thank you Lois.... I'm glad you like her. She was a lot of fun to create! Have a wonderful night!
Comment: Thank you for the cute dotee rabbit. The kitties send you a thank-you, also, for the cat toy. (Althought it still sounded like "meow" lol) I no sooner opened the packet and Cloe was rolling on the table with it still in the plastic bag. I wish I could give you more hearts. I will mark "National Rabbit Appreciation Day" on my calendar. After all, we all need to be appreciated!!
Response: Thanks for the heart.... and I'm glad your kitties liked the toy. I should have made two, I hope they'll share. :) Have a great day!
Comment: Thanks very much for the pennies and postcard from Punxsutawney. My boys love the movie "Groundhog Day" and were very interested in the pennies and postcard. It is so interesting to learn about places distant from our home.
Response: Thanks for the heart, and I'm glad you all liked it. Have a great day.
Comment: Thank you for the rainbow duck! So cute! When I found it today the little box was floating on about 3 inches of water in front of my porch step...thank goodness the duckie knows how to swim! lol
Response: Thanks for the heart, and I'm glad she was a good swimmer! Hope she didn't get ruined. Have a great day.
Comment: i wasn't going to say anything which is why i left this just a 5 with no comments but i figured it will help you in the future with atcs, so i'm adding a comment. i really wish you would have put more effort into it. a drawing like that would have taken anyone about 2 seconds to do. also the atc paper you use is a little flimsy. next time i would choose something a bit more sturdy. atc: http://www.flickr.com/photos/75872673@N07/7606063526/in/photostream
Response: Well, I'm glad you thought it took 2 seconds to draw the cat card for you, but it didn't. I put alot of effort into the card, after reading your profile. You can't please everyone.
Comment: Shannon, That is very bazzare that you would get me as your partner for the same Dotee. I really thought more people would be interested in these swaps. I love both the Dotees you made and I like the fact that you made them both. I made three of the Dotees and I made them pretty much all the same except I changed their faces a bit and their hat colors.
Response: I'm glad you like her. I just got a penpal letter from a friend who said almost the same thing, it's like SB just has the same ppl and we keep getting them. I have several Dotees made by the same person and I love them she puts so much work into them. I'm glad you like them. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you sooo much for Duckie he is tooÃ´o cute and thanks for the red yarn it will make good hair and your kind words believe me I am not that strong for the first couple of years I most played in bed praying and waiting to die but into my life came a little 3 lb puppy I named Maggie who who needed me and made me laugh she is my best friend and I truely believe she saved my life
Response: Thank you for the heart, I'm glad you like him.... I had fun creating him.
Comment: It's so cute! Thank you. Great technique with the markers. It made some cool fabric. :-)
Response: Thank you for the heart.... I'm glad you like her. The first one I did, oh my gosh. Is huge. I sewed rainbow buttons on it and then cut it out and sewed so the raw edges were out. She's like 10 inches tall. My sister says it looks like a spider. lol. Anyways thank you for the heart, and I'm glad you liked her.
Comment: 1000 apologies for not rating sooner! I found your Mermaid ATC swap envelope unopened in a stack of mail my husband had tucked into a desk drawer. I never saw it! Its very pretty - you're right about the sequins, they really pick up the colors in the mermaid :)
Response: Thank you for the heart.... no problem. I just thought it was taking awhile to get to you. I'm glad you like her! Have a great day.
Comment: Oh brilliant! I wouldn't mind tucking in into this humongous burger, with the help of my (equally) humongous husband, bless him. I seem to remember seeing this on the TV some time ago. (Makes a difference from all those ancient sites and historic monuments, doesn't it? Excellent! ;-)
Response: Thanks for the heart... my hubby likes the burgers, they have different "game" ones too.
Comment: Thanks for your letter. We have 2 kitties that we adopted from a shelter about an hour and a half from us. We got them in October and they are now 1 year old. Dakota is all black and Lily is a calico. Thank you for fostering kitties. There is such a need for that. Hope you have a great day. Thanks again!!!
Response: Thank you for the heart! I am a crazy cat lady! Have a great day! (and thanks to you for saving 2 lives).
Comment: The ATC that my daughter received from your son was so adorable,She absolutely thought it was wonderful.She said to tell you ,that she really likes the dog one you sent too, She has a collection of her own and your sons is in her book.Thanks
Response: Thank you for the heart, and I'm glad your daughter liked them. It took a little motivation, but D worked really hard on the one he sent. I kept telling him it was for a little girl, and that encouraged him. Have a great day.
Comment: Another wonderful swap from you as always! You took the Goblin idea and ran with it. Thank you so much. I love this little Dotee.
Response: Awww, thank you! Thank you for the heart. I love to get creative with them and have fun. It's interesting to see how they turn out with a few extra lines. :) He is really cute, that face just melts me.
Comment: I love this little bird! She has a place of honor in my studio. It took a U.S. Village to bring Wooti from Africia. He is an amazing beautiful dog. My friend, his mama, is writing his story. It is a good one.
Response: Thank you for the heart, and I'm glad you like the birdie. :) Give Wooti a rub from me. Have a great day!
Comment: Got your duck, thank you very much. This was fun, I may do it again.
Response: Thank you for the heart, it was fun.... I like the altering duck swaps. On the last one (it wasn't zentangle) my partner sent me a mermaid duck, and my son (4) has redone the jewels for the bikini :( She's still cute, just not as perfect.
Comment: Thanks for the pc and the lovely letter. I joined postcrossing back in October and then swapbot at the end of December and have been wondering all this time what the heck a free ad card was. Now I know. I have never seen them around here before. My husband and kids are huge fans of man versus food and they were impressed with the card. Will be writing soon.
Response: Hi Liz, that wasn't a free ad card, thats a PC from Dennys. You can buy lots of stuff in the gift shop. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Love the duck...looks kinda like he just left the Mummers Parade. Oh the patience you must have to work with pins and sequins? Nice to see recycled packaging. Thanks a bunch for a great new duck for my growing collection.
Response: Thanks Lisa. I'm glad you liked her. It wasn't too bad working on it, just when the pin heads and sequins didn't line up, but then I figured out I could put a smaller one over the bigger. I hope it made it there in one piece. I try to recycle whenever I can.
Comment: very cute ATC just a helpful idea always make more then 1 of any ATC keep 1 for your collection and have extras in case you need an ATC in a hurry alot of times its sender choice so you can use 1 of your extras for inatance couple of weeks ago I did a pet ATC swap then here comes an animal swap I could have used my pet one for both anyway I think its always nice to have some in reserve just in case I run out of time and need a backup.Hope you get as much enjoyment out of ATC as I do
Comment: Thanks for telling me your experience. Don't be creeped out; this is the most usual kind of ESP event -- having unexplained sensations when someone you love is sick or hurt. It means you have a closer bond than usual; that's not bad.
Comment: Thanks for the cute card. I am not sure what exactly the coin thing is or what I can use it for, but it's green!
Please make sure to write the name of the swap somewhere on your correspondence. It took me awhile to hunt down which swap you were in to rate you! <3
