Comment: Thank you so much, Tanya, for one of the coolest most creative PLs I've received!! I loved all the detail and cleverness that went into making it!! We have many of the same resolutions, so here's to a fantastic 2019!!! Cheers!! :o)
Response: Yay!! I am so glad it made it to you and Thank you for the lovely complements and appreciation for my art! I do so enjoying creating! I wish you all the best on your resolutions!!
Comment: Hi Tanya! Your envelope full of wonderful stamped images arrived today. You have an amazing collection. I'd really like to know what brand the Christmas stamps are - the idea of showing the construction of the gingerbread house and candy is great. I'll find a good use for all the images as they are really to my taste. :) Best wishes, Louise
Response: The Christmas stamps are Tim Holtz, so glad you liked them!
Comment: Thank you so much for the pocket letter! Each pocket was so well-decorated and I just loved all the goodies inside! Snowflake items are some of my favorite crafty things, so I especially loved the various die cuts! What a great package!
Response: Oh I am so glad it arrived safe and you love everything!! Have a wonderful Christmas/winter season!
Comment: The journal arrived today (I didn't realize you are in Canada and that mail takes longer) This is one of my favorite journal swaps. It's very good to think about favorite moments -- makes us stop and think which we don't often do without being prompted .
Response: The postal service does feel like its VERY slow of late. its kind of driving me nuts. But I am so glad it finally arrived!
Comment: I received your booklet and I love it! I haven't had a chance to read it all the way through yet, but I love all the washi tape and stickers. Some of the stickers are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your month with me.
Comment: Hi Tanya. Thanks so much for your postcard. I really love the idea that you made a book out of your postcards received and are displaying the result :-) I'd love to do something similar. I think it would be a lovely idea to pen pal. Am going to drop you a pm. Have a nice weekend!
Comment: Thank you very much for the postcard, what a beautiful landscape! Must be really nice living there :) Swap-bot was mentioned on a postcrossing postcard to me, when I looked it up there were several interesting swaps, so I joined immediately :D I love the diversity of swaps here. Best wishes!
Comment: Hi there, thanks for the card. The postcards I receive go in a blue 4" ring binder by subject. I currently have 7 full binders, and hope I can condense to just my favorite cards instead of getting an eighth, but who knows. :)
Response: Thats really neat! you must have be a long time collector! Thanks for the lovely rating Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Thank you for the journal. I really enjoyed it. I put it aside and read it when I had a minute to be alone enjoying a cup of tea. Loved the package with the KITTY washi tape on it. Thanks again.
Response: Awesome! I am glad it arrived safe and sound and not too late. Thank you for the lovely rating!! Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Wonderful bookmark and great envy with cool stamps. Thank you so much Tanya. Sorry my rating is a big late. I put your envelope in my gym bag when I got it and then I forgot it was there. I went to the gym today and voila! Extra nice surprise waiting for me.

Comment: Tanya, thank you so much for your lovely package! It was so thoughtful of you to add a TOTORO PEN! I absolutely love it! And your homemade bookmark was gorgeous. I love how many different media you used - I can't wait to use it <3 And as for your letter... It was the most well thought out, kind, beautiful, interesting one I've received yet! I will be writing back to you ASAP and I can't wait to become great friends and pen-pals <3 Thank you again for everything, it really brightened my day :D

Comment: Tanya thank you so much for the beautiful journal! I absolutely love it! The face on the envelope was a wonderful touch. My daughter was very happy to point out all the "wee sprites" she saw. I really love the unique side pockets you did-so cool I think I may try that technique in my next one. Have a wonderful day!
Response: Wonderful!! I am so glad it made it safe and sound!! Thank you for the rating and the heart ðŸ’• i had a blast incorporating fabric without a sewing machine.
Comment: Tanya, thank you so much for the beautiful fairy world ephemera swap. I absolutely love your artwork. Thank you for re-sending, I know how disappointing it is when a swap goes astray; all the time, effort and imagination you put into it disappear too, so I appreciate that you took such care making this lovely replacement. Thank you! â™¥
Response: Yay!! I am thankful this one made it. :0) Thank you for your lovely kind words and your patients. A giant Thank You to you!!!
Comment: The book is really interesting. All the fold out pages are cool. The paper edge design is really a nice touch. Did you draw the tree, unicorn, and mermaid? They are beautiful and would love to know what medium you used? Thank you for the lovely book! Thank you for swapping:)
Response: I am glad you like the journal, my style is very different from yours. Its why i love swapping. ðŸ˜ I did not draw the Pictures wish i was that talented. I did paint them with water color paints.
Comment: Wow! I was so excited to find this in my mailbox when I got home and then I opened it...I absolutely love it ðŸ˜ I actually looked through it twice and then made my partner look at it too (even though he has less than 0 interest, lol). Thank you so much â¤ï¸ I can barely wait for the next journal swap ðŸ˜Š
Response: Awesome!! I am so thankful it arrived safely and that you love what I made. Thank you for participating in my swaps!!

Comment: Thank you for the pretty tags! I like the quote on the pink/red tag (you don't have to have life planned and sorted....)- do you know who said it?
Response: The name is on the picture...sadly i can not make it out. i tried googling the quote and still haven't found the person to credit to.
I am glad you liked them all :0) thanks for the 5 rating :0)
Comment: Tanya, it's apparent you spent lots of time making your/my junk journal...and you must have tried to address some of my profile likes, as it doesn't look like YOUR profile. :) Thank you for sending it and for joining the swap. I'm somewhat a newbie in making junk journals. You inspired me! Hearts and hugs...jinanne
Response: glad you love it! I really enjoy making these little books.
Comment: Thank you, Tanya, for the resend. I love the picture of Jasper NP. So beautiful! I think it is so convenient that Canada sells postage paid postcards. I saw them first when I visited Toronto. So easy to mail! Thanks again. Happy New Year! Happy Swapping! Valerie

Comment: Thanks for all the lovely extras! To answer your question: During Halloween time, my tradition is to make an altar for loved ones who have passed away to celebrate their afterlife on el Dia de los Muertos (November 2). I make it colorful and festive, including their photos and treats that they enjoyed while on Earth. It's one of my favorite things to do that time of year :)

Comment: Hi Tanya I received my pocket letter and loved it. I wish I could give you 10 hearts. I just love Graphic 45 paper. You did such a great job of the pocket letter and with so many nice little treats in it. Thanks again and I hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Response: It is wonderful paper that Graphic 45 paper, its so pretty i didn't really want to cover it up!!.
I am super glad you liked it and hopefully the treats come in handy :0)
Until we swap again. Tanya
Comment: Ha ha ha, papyrophobic! There can't be too many of those on this site! An extra thank-you for making your ATCs out of scrap cardboard: recycling kudos for you (there should be green hearts, too!)
Yours, Sonia (SuMay)
Response: I thought it was appropriate :0) why thank you!! I love recycling!! Happy swapppin :0)
Comment: Very nice flip book :) Great job with the little flaps and pockets, and thanks for the little goodies (and the letter, I saw just before sending mine that the swap did request that a letter be included). If I can just offer a little CC - maybe embelish a little more? And include a little about yourself throughout? Like include your own "Currently..." behind the tag? But while I could tell you are new to flip books - you are well on your way to making amazing ones! You definitely have the right idea!
Response: Thank you :0) I appreciate the feed back. Cheers!
Comment: How cool that I got to be a part of your very first swap. I love the card you made =D I also think it is awesome that you are getting your kids into pen palling. It is such a great hobby, and you have a full house lol...so what a cool activity to do together! I hope spring has found it's way to you now!!
