Comment: Thank you for the dreamy, beautiful Glendenning painting -- I had not seen it previously :) I am pinning it on my spring moodboard. Thank you also for the book recommendation; it sounds like something I need to read! I also love your font-like handwriting :) My apologies for the tardy rating -- it's been a busy, stressful week filled with pet abduction and recovery (I am still furious/upset at the neighbor responsible for this), lots of cooking and baking, community events, and out-of-town guests. Happy weekend, and I hope our paths cross again!
Response: Oh wow what a busy week! So glad you enjoyed the postcard!! And I'm pretty sure I was partnered with you again just recently.
Comment: First, really cool postcard :) I have not read the Magicians trilogy but I did just finish watching the first season of the show and I have really enjoyed it. Alice is amazing. Maybe I'll get to meet her at San Diego Comic-con this year. Fingers crossed. Thanks for sharing, Nathan
Response: I really liked the TV series they did too. That would be neat to actually meet one of them! Hope you do!
Comment: Thanks for the log! There's some great looking books on there that I might need to check out :)
I've actually read Nightlight too, but I didn't care for it. just not the kind of parody I enjoy.
Response: Yea, it was kinda of a "trash novel" but a good laugh at the moment I was reading it. I'm glad you liked the rest tho!! I love reading something new!
Comment: Your bookmark was smaller than mine, I used a vintage Christmas poem from 1961. I did also include a smaller bookmark I made for each of my partners.
Response: I do want to point out that I did not put a size requirement for the bookmarks or that you had to send multi. That is/was completely up to the sender. BUT thank you for the rating and the heart. I hope you liked the poem. Happy Swapping!
Comment: It would have been nice if the journal would have been finished. But I promised not to rate a three, because I don't mind being late and I kept in mind that you were sick. Thanks anyway for sending your swap.
Response: Thank you for the rating. But I will admit I do not deserve it as the journal was not finished. I know you had promised to not rate a 3 but if you feel you should please do. I know I was sick and late but I take full responsibility of not finishing.
Comment: Thank you for the charm you sent with my skinny.
Response: The owl is my totem animal so I tend to keep a lot of owl items around lol. So when I saw that you like snowy owls it was obvious to share my collection :). I am glad you like it you could turn it into a wish bracelet (just a thought). Thank you for the rating and Blight Blessings.
Comment: Thanks for the teas. Thanks also for letting me know it would be late. Totally fine with you down with the flu. Feel better soon. I look forward to trying the 5 teas you enjoy, happy swapping.
Response: Thank you so much for understanding. I hope you enjoy the different teas. happy swapping!
Comment: Oh my goodness thank you so much I would give you a tenand a bunch of hearts if I could and thank you for being so nice as well!
Response: I am so happy to hear that you liked what I sent. You were fun to pick stuff since it was art HISTORY major giving to HISTORY teacher :). I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday filled with love.
Comment: Thank you for the pic. Your sister did a great job carving. I think I heard if you mist the inside of a pumpkin with a mild solution of bleach and water it will prevent the mold. Something to try next year. :)
Response: Thank you for the rating. We had heard about rubbing vaseline on the inside but by the time she finished carving she had forgotten to try it out lol.
Comment: Fabulous pictures, I'd love that darling little mummy myself. Your two pictures came just in time for Halloween and will be among next year's "favorite decorations", for sure. Thanks for adding to my Happy Halloween!
Response: I am so glad you liked the mummy!! Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!! Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: If this is the first time you have ever done a creative writing assignment then you did fairly well. I would encourage you to sign up for the next one and continue practicing your creative writing skills.
Next time, which is a park bench try focusing on one aspect of the bench, where it is located, perhaps one person who sat on it...
I love the idea behind the golden box, but given only 3 paragraphs it is perhaps better to focus only on one part of it instead of trying to tell a complete story in that amount of time. Good luck!
Response: Thank you for the rating and the wonderful advice! I will thinking about joining the next one if school does not get out of hand.
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely vacation photos! You looked like you had a fun time in Virginia. The Beatles pub seems really cool, especially with the murals they did. (Despicable Me 2 was also such a cute movie!). Have a fantastic day. (ï½¡â—•â€¿â€¿â—•ï½¡)
Response: We really did have a great time on vacation. I am so glad you liked the photos of the pub (it was my favorite part lol). Thank you so much for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Tracey I am so glad you are back swapping cause you my friend make amazing things! I love the picture, it is so awesome. I don't know what made me think of this but I think I might do a monthly one with a different item!! Thank you again so much! XO Kelly :)
Response: I am so glad you liked my photo. So glad to be swapping again too. Cant wait to do more of these swaps, it was so much fun!!
Comment: Thank you for your nicely crafted postcards ^.^ To tell the truth, at first I almost took a sky photo too, because I thought it would look great in black and white... but yours is waaaay better ^0^
Response: so glad you liked them :) thank you for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Tracey!!! Thanks so much for such a wonderful package!!! I love each item you included, you did a great job!!! From the spooky goods, to the notepaper to the bandaids, such a fun package to open!!! Thanks so very much!
Response: I am soooo glad you like everything!! This swap was so much fun putting together :)
Comment: Thank you for all those different kind of teas. I really enjoyed opening one a day and even if I haven't drunk all of them yet I loved the once I already tasted. This was a very nice swap and I hope there will be another for 2012, because this advent calendar was amazing, well you as one of my swap partners made it amazing! :)
Comment: Thank you. interesting interpretation. I like how the hair bun echos the flowers.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I usually try to see things in a differnet way sometime its comes out really neat like with yours. Ended up painting my own copy :). Glad you liked it.
Comment: Its official, Royal Mail hate me, got a hugggeeeee pile of mail this morning almost all international and some that I've been waiting 2 months for.!! Loved the ATC tracey, the kicking fairy had kick-ass attitude! xx
Response: SOOO glad you got it!!!! Glad you liked it!
Comment: Hi! I hope you are feeling better, you poor baby! Plus you had an exam to worry about - yikes! You are so sweet about the ATCs and I am very happy you enjoyed them! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks, if anything i did get an 80 on the exam, better than what i was expecting lol. Hugs.
Comment: wow-do you have awesome handwriting! lol! and of course i liked the pc & pic of you too! so fun to get to see the people you swap with! keep doing great in school-we need more dedicated, caring teachers like you! thanks so much-happy swapping! :)
Response: lol thanks. that means a lot. I liked this swap, cause i got a chance to see the people i swap with.
Comment: I've never seen paint look quite like that, I'm really curious how you did it!?! Or what you used?
Response: That postcard was a lot of fun to do :) i used acrylic paint and just dripped it all over the postcard, but to get rid of the bumpy effect so that it would be easier to go throught the mail and everything i flattened the paint and it looked cool after i finished.
Comment: I finally received your ATC today... I was getting worried. The postmark said it was sent on time, guess it just took the scenic route! Your ATC is awesome, I always forget about Sleepy Hollow being a Burton movie. I hadn't seen that one in a while so I added it to my Netflix... Thanks!
Response: Good im so glad you got, I was getting worried too. But glad you like it :). Thank you for the heart :).
Comment: I received the ATC today, and I love it. The envy was not in the greatest shape and there was a note on the front saying that it was put in the wrong box. I'm not sure when that happened. But, anyway, it is here in the safety of my album. Thanks a bunch.
Comment: I've received your ATC. It must be pretty neat to have that wharf nearby your campus. It looks really pretty and peaceful - it can get you inspired to daydream...er...study more when you're there. (^_~) Thank you for sending it.
Comment: Thank you very much for the cute little package! I have already been shopping for you, but havenÃ„t wirtten your letter yet, so it's great, that I already have yours, so I can directly answer to it. I hope, I'll get the swap out on Monday or THursday - I'm glad we started swapping and writing and I hope you'll like my package just as much as I liked yours!
See you then! Love, Sophie
Response: Great glad you liked it!! :) Cant wait to hear from you!!
Comment: Thanks for the cute cards! It's typical to put contact info, the date, a title (if you have one), the number in the series, etc, on the back of ATCs, so I've gone ahead and added it to yours. :)
Response: Thanks. ill have to try to remember that for future ones.
Comment: I love the postcard and the quote together because, yes, Art requires courage, and the way people react to stickers on this website, the fact that you bravely added to sticker clouds to your dragonfly was awesome. This is a keeper.
Comment: Your Eiffel Tower drawing was absolutely incredible. I wish I had half your talent. I am buying a frame for it & hanging it on my craft room wall. I wish you all the best as a teacher. Your students will be lucky to have you.
