Comment: Thank you for my notecard Cheryl! Chosing to kiss you husband in 1981 if you could go back in time pulled at my heart strings <3. I hope you are loving yourself and loving life! thank you so much for the postcard and the old book pages. I am very appreciative of these extras you included :)
Response: So glad you liked it... and yes, life is wonderful!
Comment: Got the resend! Thank you so so much for resending! Love that you took care to send extras with regards to my profile. Thanks for sharing your art with me! I hope things start looking up for you soon. Take care!! <3
Comment: Thank you for the fun zine. I love how you were able to get the color to the edge of the page. My favorite page was "Sidewalk Egg Frying Day". My printer will not do this. The extras were fun... Thank you!
Comment: Cheryl, I love your July zine! That black background/edging really sets it off and makes the color pop! I loved the fireworks on the cover, but that guy on July 12, for Different Colored Eyes Day, really drew my attention, especially since that's my birthday - I didn't know about Different Colored Eyes Day at all! Thanks also for the extras you included; I love them all, especially that little tag! I can't wait to use them in my upcoming projects!!! Thanks for a great swap! You rock!
Comment: This is a fun swap-I haven't done mine yet but by looking at yours-I see all the fun possibilities. Yours are very nice and well done! Thanks for the extras -love the wacky July holiday zine-I haven't done a zine in awhile but they too are a lot of fun if not challenging! The other extras you sent me were great too-I was just in an antique store this last week-end asking if they had any player piano music rolls but sadly they had some but had sold-so I was thrilled to get a piece of some in this swap-it really is fun stuff-Thanks for sharing and being a great partner!
Comment: I love the title on the cover...."Wacky July"...funny....and the fireworks design...great zine!...thank you for all the different goodies....I like all the fabric pieces...I will take up the challenge to use them in my art journaling...cheers!
Comment: Thank you, the card is beautiful! Thanks for the feathers & skull extras, too. Your address label is fun, where do you get them?
Response: So glad you liked everything! I tried to find a few special profile items to add. :) Anyway, I drew my sugar skull girl and my labels are just her with my info printed on paper then I cut the paper. I don't know how to print on labels! lol
Comment: What a treat to open your envelope, Cheryl! The most amazing ATC,..so many gorgeous elements!...and then the fabulous selection of incredible extras. I was dragging after work today...didn't think I'd have the energy to feed the cats, even (okay, that's a joke, because their needs come ahead of mine here at Chez Meow)...but your beautiful stuffs knocked the tiredness right out of me! Thank you for being the best sort of swap partner...for sharing your talent and attention to detail as well as the sweet extras. You made my day.
Response: I've had a rough 5 days (my mother's health) and this comment made MY day so thank you! I'm thrilled it made you so happy!!!
Comment: oh my goodness, this was an extra special swap indeed! How did you know of my love for SARK, or that sari silk is one of my favorite materials? Is it so wrong that I secretly hope to get paired with you many times in the future, and all your swaps to me are lost in the mail, so I can get this kind of extra special treatment on a regular basis? lol Thank you!
Response: Oh YAY! So glad you got it and are happy! Woot!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cards and extras! Question - is there significance to the paper clip being covered in the music paper? It looks really cool, but I wasn't sure if that is also a hack to protect the fabrics? Just curious :)
Response: You are most welcome! No, significance... I make these paperclips to put into my junk journals and I use them for bookmarks and such. I love them so thought I'd send you one. :)
Comment: First of all I want to thank you for the gorgeous atc. Love how you incorporated all the elements. Second, third & fourth...it's like Christmas - you spoiled me with the fabric, napkin, washi, weaved paper, kitty stickers and THE 💛 ENVELOPE. You made my day 😊
Response: YAY! So glad you are happy! You gave great hints on your profile! :)
Comment: Thanks for the sassy card! The extras are awesome, too. I'm not sure what material the silver piece is, but it's cool! The book mentioned in my rating is The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. It's a good psychological mystery.
Response: You are most welcome! I don't know what that paper is either but I love it so thought I'd share! And I'm going to look up that book. I love psych mysteries!
Comment: Many thanks for your beautiful card (SO pretty) and all of the PL cards and stamped tissue paper. The cat stickers are a real throwback! Very cute! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you spend it in the perfect shady, breezy spot!
Response: Thank you! And glad you got a kick out of those stickers! LOL I love them! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Oh where do I start?! I loved everything about the envelope you sent from the Lennon stamp to the bits of fabric. Thank you so much for the extras and the great postcards. The Texas one is my favorite, I laughed a little too hard at that one 😂
Response: Ha! It is funny! Glad you liked it... Even if I did have to send it twice! Did you see the little space under the stamp where it was returned? LOL SLEEP... I need SLEEP. lol
Comment: You’re zine was beautiful :) I’m lucky you got me for another swap and was mailed a physical copy ;) I actually saw it when you mailed it before I saw your email! It made it all the more special
Response: Oh I'm so sorry! I'll mail you another one. I want you to have a new one! It may be next week but keep your eyes open! :)
Comment: FABULOUS ZINES!!!! You did amazingly well! Also, no, physics makes that happen. I tried not folding the long fold until I had the rest of it ready and cut (I usually have lines around each page, so I knew where to cut) and it worked to make one even, but not the other one. Anyway, thanks so much! You'll have 18 zines in 3 envelopes shortly...well, depending on the post office. They'll all go in the same mailbox at the same time, and probably get to you weeks apart.
Response: Ha! I can't wait to see them! And thanks so much for the encouragement and the new addiction. :P
Comment: I love the black background, your colours pop on the dark space. Great quotes. I'm honoured that you chose my monthly e-swap to give zine making a try. I'm glad it turned out to be fun for you.
Response: You have given me a new obsession! So thank you!
Comment: Thank you SO MUCH for the package of goodies! You really blew me away with everything that was inside! The zine, the ATC, the stickers the papers, the postcards! So so so lovely. Thank you so much. If I could rate you higher than a 5 and give more than one heart, I would. This was one of the loveliest swaps I’ve ever received. :)
Response: I just saw this! I'm so glad you liked everything! Woot!
