Comment: Thank you for such lovely ATCs! I get nervous at times when hosting new swaps, but it brings me so much joy to see such awesome creations! Thanks for joining and making this an extra special swap. I absolutely love these snowman ATCs :)
Response: Your so very welcome. I am so glad you liked my snowman. I had so much fun making them. Thanks for hosting. Happy Holidays
Comment: Would you believe both of your ATCs have now arrived? The gold envie was all torn but the ATC was inside. Thanks so much for sending twice. I will send one of mine to you to make up for the extra one you sent to me.
Response: Your so very welcome. And for sending me one of your's
Comment: I absolutely adore all the things you included for me. The tags you made were absolutely different from the ones I do and that made it even more special. The stamps will be a lovely addition to my collection and I'm looking forward to using them. Thank you so much for making my day. 😘
Response: Your so very welcome. I bought the set not realizing I already had the set. So I thought you may like them. I am glad you also like the tags. Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you for the novel! I think I’m going to wait until it gets a little closer to Christmas to read it, it seems like a good snuggle up with a cup of cocoa book! I’m sorry for the late rating, I’m sure this arrived a while ago but I hadn’t had an opportunity to check my PO Box in a bit. Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful APC :)! You chose just the right papers as I love Graphic45 and you card is so well done with those great 3D-details. Thank you also for the bits and pieces, this collection is quite new for me and the papers are very hard to find here. You really made my day!
Response: Your so very welcome. I am so glad you liked my card. We had a craft store close here so I got my few Graphic45 paper on clearance. Happy Swapping
Comment: OH M GOODNESS! I have never seen a stamp like that! I love love love this! I actually grow roses. My mom saved some from a memorial rose garden, so two of my four beauties are close to 100 years old! Thanks! I cant wait to put this one into my collection of postage stamp ATCs!
Response: Your so very welcome. I love that stamp too. It is beautiful it was hard to part with. So I am happy you love it so much. Happy Swapping
Comment: Fall & Halloween is my favorite time of the year also. I loved your ATC and the note card. Heck my hubby was laughing at me because I was squealing over the sticker skeleton sticker on the envelope. Oh and I love the pumpkin Washi strip also. Where did you find that washi at? Heck If I could give you a 10, I would of.
Response: Your so very welcome. I glad you liked them. I got the Washi in a box of Washi Tape goodies on EBay. I got almost 90 Rolla and various other things and paid like 50 cents a roll
Comment: Thank you for all the lovely punchies!!! I LOVE my name in orange, the orange stars and the orange tags. So sweet of you to include my favorite color! But, I especially LOVE the tiny frogs and fishes! They are so adorable!!! Thank you so very much for such an awesome swap!!!
Response: Your so very welcome. I just purchased the letter punches from a garage sale this summer. I also was able to buy number punches too. Happy Swapping
Comment: ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–I never peek to see who my partner will be so as soon as I saw that pretty pink envelope with your name on it, I squealed with delight! I knew it would be special and it was. You created such a beautiful ATC for me and I LOVE it! Such an artistic eye you have for color and balance. The leetle luncheon invite is just too sweet! Thank you for a lovely swap.â¤ï¸ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–ðŸ’–
Response: Your so very welcome. I always like getting you for a partner. I have so much fun, making cards for you. I was out of town for work and had limited supplies with me. So was hoping, you would like what I made. Happy Swapping
Comment: This is a beautiful little ATC! I love how you had the paper bag on the back, too. I think crinkled paper bag might be my newest art thing - it gives things such interesting texture! Thanks for making it for me! (love the envelope, too)
Response: Your so very welcome. I was out of town for work and had limited supplies with me. So I am so glad you like how it turned out. I had another piece of brown paper for the backing, but used the paper bag instead it seemed to give it that finishing touch. Happy Swapping
Comment: Hi Jousie: Thank you for the beautiful ATC with a key. I loved doing this swap, and like you, love vintage items as well. They always make a much more interesting piece of work! Cheers, Laurie
Response: Your so very welcome. I was told once that I have an old soul, because I love Old Movies and all things vintage. Happy Swapping
Comment: Jousie, Thank you so much for the wonderful envie of Happy Mail! I loved it all! Thanks for looking at my profile and picking out things I love!!! Wish I could give you more hearts! Happy Swapping!
Response: I am so glad you like your package. I just happened to have a few things that fit. Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you! One thing you sent brought back memories. My uncle Fred had native divers dive for what he called "cats eyes" for him during WW2 in the south Pacific and my uncle Wayne made all of us jewelry from them. Mine was burned in a fire and in your "junk" was a bag of those "cats eyes"! I'll have some fun with those, for sure! They are some sort of plant that hardens when air hits it, from what my uncle told me. Polished and coated with something shiny, they are amazing. I'll try coating them with acrylic gloss medium and see what happens!!
Response: Thanks so much for sharing your story. My dad was in WWII also but in Northern Africa and Scilily. I was hoping you would find something you could enjoy. Happy Swapping
Comment: Jousie, thank you for the two books by Susan King. I have never read any of her books so I am looking forward to reading these. It is a wonder your package arrived to me. Most of the paper you wrapped it in was torn to shreds and they put a rubber band around it so it would stay together. I don't know how the post office handles them, but this one looked like it went through a war. Shirley PS: Read the first book and loved it. Thank you again
Response: I am so sorry. I took them in to the post office it self. I ran out of packing tape, so I thought if I took them in it would be ok. I guess Not thanks for letting me know. Happy Swapping
Comment: What an awesome ATC. I love the colors and the embossing. Your theme is truly dear to my heart. I would love to travel. I went to Germany when I was in high school and I've wanted to visit other countries. Thank you for creating such a beautiful ATC!
Response: Thanks for the lovely compliment. I had so much fun making it. I love to travel. I hope to go to Paris one day and if I do, I am going everywhere I can
Comment: I love Paris too! One of my daughters was studying in France one summer and I was able to join her for a week in Nice and Paris. It was delightful. The whole city smelled like flowers to me (it was around the time of the Solstice and the days were incredibly long). When we went to Notre Dame, I found the flowering trees that were perfuming the entire city. I hope you get to go soon.
Response: I am so glad you like my card. Thanks for sharing about your trip Happy Swapping
Comment: Hi Jousie. Thank you for the darling ATC. I love the little Christmas tree..did you make the texture on it? I also love my Christmas card, I am very fond of cardinals. Thanks, too, for reading my profile. I wish you a mailbox spilling over with wonderful swaps and good cheer!
Response: No I didn't I bought my little trees at a fund raiser/garage sale. I spent more money than I should have but I got some cool stuff and it was for a good cause. Merry Christmas
Comment: ðŸŽ…ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ…ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ…ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ…ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ…. Love love love my beautiful ATC! The blues and gray are so lovely and peaceful. You really got lucky finding that wonderful stamp! Merry Christmas sweetie!
Response: Thanks so much. I was hoping you would like it. I also found another stamp similar to that one at the same sale. I was like a little kid at Christmas. Merry Christmas to you also
Comment: Thanks for what you have sent! I will be saving this one until Christmas morning and open it then! I will come back and add to this rating! Happy Holidays! Thanks for joining the swap!
Thanks for the cute Santa atc!
Response: Your so very welcome. I had so much fun making my Cristmas ATC's. Happy Holidays
Comment: Thanks so much for the ATC. And the note. For me, running across a yard sale/thrift sale/church bazaar with paper crafting items is both a curse and a blessing! I do love the stamp you found.
Response: Your so very welcome. I agree with you I consider it a blessing but my boyfriend considers it just my dumb luck. LOL Happy Holidays
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome present! The stickers on the outside are soo cute. Hubby says "Be good Sammie." Its so hard putting the envelopes away lol. I love your stickers and your stamps! I didn't know the post office has snowflake forever stamps! Sooo awesome!!! Can't wait.....must open......oh I hope my will power is strong enough! Thank you sooo much! Hugs
Response: Your so very welcome. I hope that when you do get to open it that you like and can use the goodies inside. Thanks so much for hosting this fun swap. Happy Swapping
Comment: Wow, Thank you for the recipes. I don't know which to start with first, but right now it warmed up here in Iowa so I don't want to turn my oven on just yet. This weekend it will go on. Thank you for the extra recipe cards also. I can always use them. Thanks again.
Comment: Thank you so much for these two ATC's. I really liked both of them, and especially loved the little witch! Very clever use of the tags for tombstones. Also thanks a bunch for the stamps. I will be needing them for Christmas cards this year!
Response: Your so very welcome. I had so much fun making them. I don't know why but the tags made me think of a tombstone. Happy Swapping
Comment: Dear Jousie, my dear friend thank you for your kind note....wow! your son is a Senior in HS! Time goes by so quickly....Thank you for my lovely "Darling" atc, and the extras are always welcome. I'm always trying to find vintage images, haven't had much luck with it. Anyway, blessings to you and yours, enjoy the Senior Year!
Response: Your so very welcome. I hope to swap with you again soon
Comment: This was such a fun package! Thank you so much for sending me ATC sleeves! I'm completely out and keep fiorgetting to order more! :) And was that one minty blue with a brown wave pattern wallpaper? I LOVE it and want to find it to paper a wall in a future homes bathroom with it (but I'll have to stop myself from using it for ATCs first)! Thank you again for everything!
Response: Your so very welcome. I am glad you liked everything. I have found making ATC cards are my favorite. Happy Swapping
Comment: I love my little envie of goodies. The trivia is a lot of fun and I adore the stickers. Love the clippings, bookmark, envie too. What is the scoop about the paperdoll? She is cute..did you make her...are there swaps for handmade paperdolls? Thanks a million for the fun. You made this an extra special swap and have earned your heart. Happy summer.
Response: Your so very welcome. No I didn't make her someone I know did. We were crafting one day and she was one of the items that was made. I haven't seen a paper doll swap would be great fun. Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you so much for the pocket letter! My favorite thing was the ATC you made - I'm trying to start a collection so I really appreciate that. I'll definitely use the papers you sent as well. I'm also a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh (yeah, I'm a big kid at heart) so I loved the Pooh bear stuff. Thanks again!

Response: Your so welcome. Your comments are very nice. I never looked at my self as being artistically inclined. I just had fun trying.
Comment: Wow! What perception you possess! You couldn't have sent a more perfect book! With my paper fascination, the next logical step is to make my own, so this book will help me start off in that direction. Thank you so much!
Response: Your so welcome. I love this book. I had two copies. So I decided to share one with you. Happy crafting.

Response: Thanks so much. My son loves that recipe. He calls it mom's special chicken.
Comment: Thank you so much for this package! I was having a bad day and it made it great :) I really love everything. I put those pretty postcards up on my bookshelf because they help me pretend it's not 100 + degrees out here in Texas. UGH! It's like you read my mind though, because I was looking for specifically Mrs. Grossman's stickers yesterday online and here they are! love them! And the stamps and scissors are also much needed here. <3 thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the package. Happy crafting
Comment: Thanks for sending your letter! I loved the passion in it you expressed for movies. I recently read & watched one of the versions of And Then There Were None, so that part of your letter especially made me smile. So did Pollyanna (The Wonderful World of Disney every week was a staple in my house when I was growing up). Many movies you listed are ones I have loved... and others I'd never heard of. Thanks for introducing me to a few new ones!
Response: Your quite welcome. I still watch old movies every week. Enjoy
Comment: I thought I had already rated you, but I guess not. Thank you for all the great stickers, they will go to great use. I am sorry to hear about your assigned partner. I am going to be sending a package of stickers before the week ends.
Response: I am glad you like the stickers some of them did not fit in my type of art so it's nice to know that you can make use of them.
