Comment: Wow Sandra! I can’t begin to thank you enough for the amazing box that was delivered to my doorstep with so many incredible items! I am excited to dive in and use the stamp sets, papers, foreign language book pages, charms, buttons, metal slides, the Dutch postcard book, bling, the lace and fibers, and more! That bunny bag was packed with such fun craft items too! Thank you so much for your generosity!
Response: Glad you found something you could use. Thank you for heart & rating. USPS was on the ball too - just sent it day before
Comment: Hi Sandra - What a wonderful swap! Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC. It's gorgeous - love all your many elements. And thank you for the fun extras too. I'm torn on which side of the paper to use (stamps or graph), the package of vellum flowers and the butterfly card - nice! 🐿️💜🐿️
Response: Thank you for rating & heart - I almost dropped this swap not knowing what I was going to use- thank you!
Comment: What a very creative ATC, I love the little pocket it's quite clever. I love the vintage bingo and feel of it too. Happy Swapping!
Response: Thank you so much, didn't know what I was going to do, till I found that old lottery ticket. I am glad you're as happy with it, as I was making it. I can sent you bingo cards if you like, I have a bunch
Comment: Hi Sandra and thank you for your kind note and the awesome paper dolls journal page! I have a whole box of these TH paper dolls so it was great to have a project specifically for them. I love the happy couple that you choeand the pretty embossed frame you put around them. The way this is presented, it reminds me of a vintage photo taken by a photographer. Your embellishments and feather and lacy trim just finish it off perfectly!! Thank you for a special swap!
Response: I agree nice to use those dolls & you’re a doll for leaving a sweet rating
Comment: I really like the ATC you made for our swap! I love old vintage-y stuff! Thank you!
I am going to send you snail mail to answer your questions about living in small cities and banjo picking! Hopefully, I'll get to that in a few days! Happy swapping!
Response: that sound great, thank you for rating & the heart
Comment: For several reasons, I wish I had the option of multiple hearts! The beauty of this piece, with all the layering, the gorgeous textures, and lovely embellishments is mind-boggling. Every time I look at this, I see something new! And let me now mention the gorgeous cotton lace (a treasure!) and sweet kitty applique...my dear friend, this is a one-in-a-million swap package! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Response: You’re still the sweetest lady on Swap-bot
Comment: Great ATC-I love using postage stamps on my ATC's too-forget and don't do it enough! Cut the border off the note you sent me and glued it in my fall junk journal! Thanks for sharing! And great to greet another October 9th baby"! Hope you had a good birthday,too!
Response: that was such beautiful stationary for fall. thank you, glad you liked it
Comment: Thank you for the Owl ATC w/ Halloween flair! I was born in Akron, OH. I do like a lot of the train graffiti now a days. I like a lot of other graffiti also.Some very beautiful and creative work out there.
Comment: Hi Sandra, Got your very creative ORANGE ATC.I so loved it.Thanks much...Yes , i love Willy.Have met hi8m several times.MYspace, HA HA.havent been there in quite awhile...have a fun Holiday season..Haunted Hugs...Patt / magicinker
Comment: Thank you for the awesome ATC. I'm so glad it its sturdy. I hate to get an ATC that you can fold in half, to me that's not an ATC it's just a piece of paper 2.5" x 3.5" with a picture on it. If someone is going to make an ATC they need to make it correctly.........=)
Comment: Hi Sandra! I love, love, love your circle pc! I may have to get a mini sewing machine just to add another element of fun to pcs! I know, getting new furniture is exciting but so much dang work!! Hope all is well with the new bed! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: that was from a $10 yardsale sewing machine. Yes it adds a little something. The bed is a continuing saga!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable ATC. I love dogs! I don't currently have a pet because we live in a rental but I did have a Shih-tzu/Terrier mix for 13 years and then she passed from kidney failure. I was heartbroken and it took me awhile to get another furbaby. We did finally adopt a Yorkie and 6 months later he died from cancer. So needless to say, I have struggled once again with the idea of having another furbaby but if we didn't live in a rental right now, I'd be looking for a small breed to love on and give a good home.
Comment: Just a gorgeous card! That heart is beautiful and a love the generous lace and that sweet image! A special thank you as well for the extras .. so nice of you ...I enjoyed your upbeat note also!
Comment: Wow! Thanks for all the awesome stuff you sent! And I love the ATC, too - very imaginative!
I get my pens in antique stores, online, at pen shows, and Japanese stationery stores. We live about 2 hours from Los Angeles.
Comment: Such a beautiful page you sent! I love it and the colors are amazing. Thanks for the blank page as well. In your note you wrote that you haven't seen me trade on Page by Page since 2018 but I sent you a mermaid page in March for the "Use Your Postage Stamps" and also I was in the swap "Use Three Shapes" in February. They were a lot of fun to create. Thanks so much!
Response: you are so right, I was looking at what i'd sent you! glad you are liking the page. It was different than my usual
Comment: Hi Sandra! Orange! You're the only person I know whose favorite color is orange! I love orange in the fall months. Your page is just lovely--are the pieces from Graphic 45? Really pretty and I especially love the feather accent. Thanks for creating something special for me!
Response: it used to be my least favorite, but now I use it quite a bit! Yes Graphic 45
Comment: OMG, it's GORGEOUS! I think dragonflies are magical creatures, and I always feel lucky when I see one in "real life". Love your stitching (I need to experiment with more than the straight and zig-zag stitches on my machine; you've inspired me!), and the moment my eyeballs spied the "imagine" piece, the John Lennon song popped into my head (I hope it stays for awhile). Sandra, think you again for being a wonderful swap partner!
Response: my daughter loves dragonflies & wouldn't you know it "imagine" came on the radio today.
Comment: Sandra, I am mortified at the amount of time it's taken me to rate you for this swap...in the process of moving, I put my mail in a "safe place" so I could rate everyone appropriately. Unfortunately, that "safe place" just revealed itself to me! I love the cute bird you used for this theme, and the only thing I DON'T love is knowing that you would alter your personal style if I am assigned as your swap partner! Sandra! Be true to your own awesome self...if I wanted ATCs (and other little works of art) in only my own "vintage" style, I wouldn't be swapping...I'd be making stuff only for myself. Where's the fun in that? I love your work, and I treasure your friendship...your sweet letter was the real highlight of this swap!
Comment: Sandra, this is adorable! Love that saying about who 'rules the rooster'--it's true around here ;=) Love all your layers and the little jewels at the bottom. Thanks for the extra papers and BINGO sheets--I didn't have any of those. The handmade card is also quite beautiful.
Comment: Great ATC-love how you achieved that rusty wood look and the very colorful owl! I love Valley City-love having lunch at the Pizza Corner and they have got two thrift stores that have great prices and am always able to find treasures there! Snow is slowly leaving here -maybe spring is around the corner!
Comment: Hi Sandra, it has been awhile. Thank you for the sweet cat ATC. I'm sitting here picking at it. I've not seen this type of background paper and now I see some sort of round wrapper? Nice layering - I need to quit picking at it but it's so intriguing :)
Comment: Hi Sandra! Oolala--I love this! Your background is simply amazing--a mixed-media dream! Love those sweet little birds and the oversized crown. Really creative. Thanks so much and hope we get to swap together again soon--it has been ages!!
Response: yes it has been ages, I've been doing more mixed media stuff. I saw your Youtube swaps. Hope to join some when I'm better
Comment: Oh Sandra, this ATC is simply beautiful! Thank you so much for making it special iun every way...and thank you also for the hefty stack of G45 Christmas papers (I will never have "enough" of them)! My favorite part of the entire swap was your lovely note...I felt like we were sitting across a table from each other, drinking good coffee and catching up, as friends do., You are just a lovely swap partner and friend...thank you from the bottom of my heart for being both. (Yikes, your poor back! I have had 7 surgeries in just under 2 years, so I know how much it puts you behind in everything you want to do.)
Comment: First of all, thank you for the really beautiful ATC :)! It has so many lovely details to look at + I like the colors and the composition, great work! And thank you also for the lovely letter and really getting into my profile. The math method I use may look complicated but teaching through it is very logical and a lot of fun and I think it´s a good method for those who have difficulties in math. I have joined a few swaps in PBP-group, but my 5 x 7 journal is a themed-one, so not all the swaps fit into that... So if I may wish, a quote-based pageswap would be great ;)!
Comment: It arrived and I do believe it took the scenic rout to get here! No fears, the design stayed intact. I appreciated the classy touch of the forever stamp as well. I did not see those offered at our PO. Thank you for taking the time to create such a wonderful PC!
Comment: LOVE this page! Really, I had glanced thru Flickr and saw the page and I said 'I really like that design'....and to my surprise, I opened your envie today and said to my son 'It's mine!' Thanks! So lovely in person, the texture is great! Thanks for a great swap! ♥
Response: I love it when that happens to me too- glad you’re happy
Comment: A late delivery on Saturday. I hope you haven't resent yet. It is a beautiful art journal page, thanks. 10th April 2019: I've received the resent today. It's very nice and whymsical colourful. It is sad that you had to send twice. Thank you so much for the extra effort;))
Comment: Thank you for the adorable birdie ATC! I like that you used a real feather on it. Gave it more dimension! Funny that you mentioned CSI:! I have the first 4 seasons and I started watching it Sunday! Lol
Comment: Hi Sandra, I received your lovely ATC today!! I love it, it is so pretty, thanks so much. Yes I guess it has been a while since we swapped. Hope to see you around in more of the same swaps. I enjoyed this swap of yours. :)
Comment: I would never get tired of having you for a partner!!! I don't even need to open your envelope to know I will love your atc!! And this one is over the top!! Love the krinkly background and the jar of hearts is so adorable! Thank you so much, Sandra! Hope your day is full of warm Valentine hearts and, of course, chocolates!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the cute ATC, It stars Bonnie & Clyde I presume? :-) I love these die cuts too, I will certainly use them. Your note cracked me up. :-) Thanks so much for the happy mail today.
Comment: What a fabulously adorable coin! I love the little snow bunny watching over the birds! You always do such amazing work. Thank you for the wonderful goody tucked inside. The stamps are so cute and will make lots of cute paper crafts. Thank you and blessings this holiday season. Hugs, Mona
Comment: Oh, I thought this looked familiar when I opened it! I got the one on the swap page!! Lucky me! It's so cute, and the photo doesn't do the boots or the apples justice - so cool. I look forward to testing out the recipe! My mom just made Apple Brown Betty, so I'd better hold off on the apple pie for a week or two, but...soon. Yum! Thanks so much! Oh, and I can't wait to use you little sketchbook journal. Hmm...I am a serious hoarder of journals, so I have to think of just the right use...
Response: I did the card, then decided it needed it's own swap :) Thank you for the nice comments & thank you for rating & the heart too
Comment: Nice creating! I really appreciate all the different circles on this atc... great variety! Nice colors as well.. thanks so much also for the extras and that cool Elvis stamp... and this last week was very hot here as well!
Comment: Yes! I do remember we have the same birthdays-but you are a year older! Fun to swap with you again! Love the Mary E. illustration on this postcard and the little quote! I can relate about not being able to find something so the Libra in me has been on a organizing of my craft supplies lately with my trusted label maker in hand! Thanks for sharing and swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the great journal page. The background and the woman on the bicycle remind me of some of the British shows I've been watching. The characters ride thru the countryside on their bikes, not so much in cars.
Thanks for the extras, the strawberry print paper is so cute; can't wait to use it.
Comment: Love the ATC, thank you so much! You know, I live hear the Middle of Nowhere Creamery, but I haven't been there. I like this other place called Little Rhody Ice Cream that's in the next town over! To answer your question, I live about 25 minutes from the Ocean. :)
Response: sounds like a great place to go, thank you for rating & the heart
Comment: Thank you for the heart ATC...its great. Thanks for the extra also. Hearts all the way around for this swap. Thanks for the birthday wishes also. Our house is complete but still lots of unpacking to do. Things don't go back in how they come out. I am a member of postcrossing but slowed down a bit so I could get back to swap-bot and ATCS for all swapping. Shoot me an email if you see something in my ebay shop you want.
Comment: Sandra, thank you for the steampunk atc! I love the look and really enjoy making and receiving steampunk items! I missed the Steampunk Challenge and hope they have another one! And yes, our grandmas are to blame!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely 'Wings-page'! It came in previous week, but I was so very stressed about the Christmas-things that had to be done, my head was overloaded ... Again I want to apologize for the Dutch Mail Services ... They should be ashamed. And I complained, but I had just a polite answer, no solution or compensation :-( But this time I got it and I will cherish it! Thank you Sandra!
Response: Glad they got to you, I hope the first one finds you someday
Thank you for heart
Comment: I saw the skunk image on the swap and fell in love with it. When I received it today, i am so very happy! Itâ€™s even better in â€œreal lifeâ€ and I am thrilled to add it to my collection. Thanks for hosting too!
Comment: Well I couldn't wait. I opened my presents, LOL! Actually I thought it was some supplies I was waiting for and was confused at first and started to open the first one before I realized it was for the swap. Then I couldn't resist opening the rest of them. Thank you so much. I love the ME stuff, yay! I've got an idea for using the eyelets for a Xmas ornament already. Funny, last year I never opened one until Xmas morning and this year this was the first one I touched. Guess I'm getting impatient in my old age. Hope you have a very Merry and a Happy New Year!
Response: oh, you bad girl! I sent a note with it didn't I? I love ME also & happy you can use the eyelets. thank you for kind words, rating & a heart
Comment: Oh my,my friend-this ATC is gorgeous! Of course you put a scottie dog on it-so sweet and love all the added bling and glitter details! You also know what kind of things to send me-yarn and Halloween! Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season-it's snowing here today-Hooray!
Response: Glad you liked it, thank you for the sweet comments, heart & for rating
Comment: Woo Hoo, another holiday goodie to stash away! My mail carrier delivered it to a neighbor up the street who just delivered it to me. Thanks ever so much!!!! Can't wait til the 25th to unwrap it!
Response: I know, I love wondering what's inside, thank you for rating, comments & heart
Comment: Oh my what a great package came in the mail today!! Loved the journal page. The book will be a fun diversion from other projects. Loved the article about pearls. I'm that way about bracelets. Thank you so much Sandra. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Response: I was hoping that's how you'd feel about that book. I love brooches, with sparkle! & Milk glass too. thanks so much for joing this swap
Comment: Sandra sweetie, thank you for a lovely ATC, and the Graphic 45 paper, Loving your card, and I promise ti write to you and answer your questions. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Blessings from Burbank.
Response: I am always happy to hear someone likes my work. it makes me smile, thank you for the heart & for rating too
Comment: Hi Sandra, WOW , now I know some techniques to use on a journal page, yours is so AWESOME!! Thanks so much. Mine to you was the first one I had ever done so I hope you like it even though it was simple. I did make the large leaves on my cuttlebug machine. Thanks for the great extras and the note and a lovely swap. Thanks for doing this private swap with me. Happy Autumn!!
Response: Good swapping with you too, thank you heart and heart. Hope to see you in more swaps
Comment: Your atc is amazing ! One of the best I have gotten in years! Thank you so much. I have an old fashioned clip chip rack that probably was from a gas station or deli and I use it to display atcs and some of my own stuff..in the kitchen.... My husband saw your card and said "that goes to the top of the chip clip!" that is top rating for you my friend. <3
Response: so Happy that it has the 'extra rating" made my day, Thank you so much!
Comment: Thanks for the package - I'm trying to wait to open it! And thanks for taking time to read my profile. I will have to check out Grace & Frankie. I was recently accepted into the Page by Page group - will sign up for next swaps!
Response: Glad you joined the group, looking forward to having you for a partner. thank you for Rating, comments & heart too
Comment: Hi Sandra! So great to hear from you! I feel like we haven't swapped in a while. Thanks so much for the beautiful ATC. I love all of the layers and I always forget how nice it looks to add a metal charm or two. I want to steal that idea, lol... It was fun reading about all your supplies, I know exactly how you feel; I'm drowning!!! I hope you had fun with the swap. Take Care -Vanne
Response: glad you are doing well. thank you for comments, rating & heart
Comment: Hi Sandra! Beautiful work on this ATC! I love what you did (embossing?) on the dress form and the color combo is great. That little black heart is a great focal point, too. Thank you for creating something special for me!
Response: the dress form is a Spellbinder's die cut
So happy you liked it. Hope we all can do a meet up again soon. thank you for comments, rating & of course, thank you for heart
Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely ATC. I appreciate the note and the cute pug sticker as well. Yes, Pork Chop thinks he is a big dog. His mission in life is to find anything edible to put in his mouth :) Thanks again!
Response: Thank you for rating, comments & heart. Pork Chop is fabulous
Comment: Thanks, Sandra, for the pretty ATC and little extra goodies. Very cute. Some of my favorite treasures came from Ohio. Auctions caused me to fill my car up with stuff! California doesn't have so many auctions like the MidWest does.....probably a good thing! Lol â™¥ = )
Comment: Thank you for the super cute ATC and extras! I love the water, too! I always tell the MR that if Mermaids are ever proved to be real, I'm going to be really mad that I got stuck as a land person, lol. Everything is just better when you're in the water.
Response: from one mermaid to another, I thank you for taking time to rate, comment & of course a heart
Comment: I received the swap today. Such a wonderful page! I have not put the pages into a journal yet. Thanks for all the great extras. Your swap id is so awesome and I love the Chinese papers. Can't wait to use them in some art.
Response: I will never believe it was sent to me instead of you, not once but twice. 3rd times must be the charm. thank you for nice comments, heart & rating
Comment: Thank you so much for the great ATC. Actually I did retire in 2014, and you are so right I think all the time how did I do everything and work too. I swear I got more done when I worked now all I say is oh I will do it later. Later really means a few weeks. Thank you for swapping.
Response: Glad you are enjoying retirement & my little leprechaun card. Thank you for rating, commenting & heart
Comment: I love your word! Refresh...such an important thing to do, and probably one of the things we fail to do regularly. Very important to remember to do this! Sandra, thank you so much...not only for the lovely ATC, but for the envelope packed with sweet extras (I do love making altered rolos!), and for your lovely letter.
Response: You are always so sweet & thoughtful. Thank you for sweet words, rating, & heart
Comment: Thank you! I do the postcard swaps on here, but not the international ones. I agree, spending $1.20 just to send a postcard doesn't seem right. 34Â¢ is way more my speed. I only have 3 white house ornaments; though it would be nice to have more. Funny thing, I still turn my mini heater on at night even though it's not cold, just because I love the warmth so much.
Response: you are so welcome!
Thank you for heart, comments & rating. Here's to more ornaments in your future
Comment: Thank you so much for this postcard. I adore the color and the technique you used and really appreciate how you accomplished it. I am really working on that layering thing and your information helps. Another great piece of mailart to hang on my art wire! Hugs & Hearts, Mona
Response: I almost didn't send it. I know the one you must of sent was going to be awesome. Thank you for heart, comments & for rating. Sandra
Comment: This is a very nice ATC. Thank you! I love the bicycle and the tea die cuts too. I did watch the new Gilmore Girls and I liked it. It was better than I thought it would be. Now they have to make another one!
Response: We need more shows like the Gilmore Girls on TV. Thank you for rating, comments & a heart
Comment: Sandra! I faved this beautiful postcard on flickr and then found it it my mailbox! How lucky am I!!! The background is gorgeous and I just love the colorful fish! Thanks for sending it my way!
Response: Glad you liked it before you saw it. the background is a paper towel from clean up. Thank you for comments, rating & the heart
Comment: Hi Sandra: Thanks for the pretty pink butterfly ATC - I love how you incorporated your book page into it as well! Beautiful butterfly with so many colors. And thanks for the cute die cut extras! Cheers, Laurie
Response: Glad you liked the pink butterfly, I used Tattered Angels mist on it. Thank you for comments, rating & heart
Comment: Thanks for the fun ATCs and extra. Also, thanks for letting me know my profile has gone blank. I don't know what happened, I did have a pretty complete profile a few weeks ago. Guess I will rebuild it.
Response: Thank you for Comments, rating & heart. Sometimes I think Swap-bot has a mind of it's own.
Comment: Hi Sandra! What a cool handmade postcard! I really enjoyed getting this. You are very talented to create this. To answer your questions, I play a little guitar and a little piano, but my main instrument is my voice. And yes, with three little boys I definitely have my hands full. In the best possible way. Have a great day! :)
Response: Thank you for the answers, glad you liked the card, and thanks for the heart
Comment: Love the ATC. Love the colors. Here, in AL, we're still green with brown tones. Still too hot for trees to color out. I bet our next color change will be green and red....... (x-mas) Thanks a bunch.
Response: Glad you like my fall colored butterfly card. Thank you for comments, rating & heart
Comment: Dear Sandra,
Thank you for your ATC (girl and rabbit) that survived the transatlantic postal pirates to arrive safe and sound just seven days after it was stamped in the capital of your state. Keep your eyes on you postbox, I've got just the thing for you!
Response: Thank you SuMay, I will be looking. Thank you for the heart, comments & for rating
Comment: How fun to get a card from you! Meeting you was exciting,and I love getting a swap from you so soon after that.The card is beautiful,well made and I love the sparkle that you added to it! Thanks so much!
Response: Great, glad you liked it, It was alot of layers. Hope to see you next time! Thank you for rating & the heart
Comment: What a perfect ATC. Yes, I mean perfect. I love everything you did. The cat with sunglasses is so cute, the colors are wonderful but my absolute favorite thing is the hanging sign. Just a wonderful ATC.
Response: Ah, thank you so much, I love to hear that people enjoy my cards. Family just isn't the same as fellow artists. Thank you for comments, rating & heart
Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC and the extras! I have two havanese/bichon dogs who are very spoiled. We traveled to Franklin, NC to the gem and mineral shows there in late July, then to TN to visit my daughter, then to MO to visit my husband's mother, then to WI to pick up granddaughter for a few weeks...then back to MO to return granddaughter...then home again. Whew! Now to make some ATCs. :-)
Response: Wow, you wore me out just reading that. Thank you for comments, rating & the heart
Comment: Dear Sandra, what a great job you did on this journal page (and tag). I'm totally overwhelmed & so VERY pleased with it! Also thanks for the extra paper-goodies!
You made my day ... no: my week! <3 - Ellen
Response: Ah thank you, it was stuff I've had & it all just came together. I have been hoping it didn't get lost in the mail. Thank you for your rating & heart
Comment: Sandra, Lady in a Hat is exquisite! I really like the tiny jewels. I've studied and studied the background and can't figure it out...just beautiful. Thank you...and thanks for the cool extras. Very thoughtful and useful!
Response: Background-cereal box,& napkin. So sorry your note is still on my desk :) thank you for rating & heart
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. Dragonflies have long been one of my favorites and they are right at home on this card, well done. As always, enjoy all the extra goodies for crafting. Hugs, Mona
Response: Thank you for rating & the heart. Dragonflies are always a hit aren't they?
Comment: lovely card. There was a betting pool at the reception (hubby and I didn't know) where people were betting how long we would be married. We are like the families in Big Fat Greek Wedding. My father picked 6 weeks, which was the longest time available in the pool. ha ha. I prepare and manipulate databases for a nonprofit, I also organize events for nonprofits and organize fundraising auctions for nonprofits. I also research different things for teachers. I will try to write you a snail mail.
Response: Oh, now it makes sense. Thank you for the Heart & for rating too.
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC with the adorable chihuahua, the fun extras, and your very kind note! It makes me feel like I got to know you a little bit, and I look forward to the next time we are swap partners. :)
Response: Till we met again...Thank you for rating & a heart
Comment: What a fun ATC! The card was really neat as well. I'm in airport security, haha. I guess my poor etsy shop is closed because I haven't updated it in forever, that's the hazards of working and going to grad school. I tend to post my ATCs on Instagram if you have it. I'm craftywashername on there!
Response: Thank you for rating & the heart. I did 'follow' you on instagram.
Comment: Sandra, thank you so much for the lovely swap. First of all, I really enjoyed reading your nice letter and the lovely envelope. Your atc is just darling...love it! Thank you also for the foreign language book page. I was just in our tiny thrift shop here in La Pine looking for just that but they didn't have any and rarely get any, so it was great that you sent me one.
Response: I thought they were such cuties in the photo. so happy you can use what I sent. I have more if you need more. Thank you for Rating & a Heart
Comment: The art page you made is lovely! And thanks for the great stamps! Thanks for the advice on arthritis - you are correct. I have it in my wrists, knees, back, possibly ankles, but my hands really bother me because I want to do stuff! I also have a really annoying trigger finger that I have to be careful with. I know heat really does help! Thanks so much and take care!
Response: Glad you liked my little 'garden' Thank you for rating & a heart too!
Comment: OOh thank you for the lovely packages, they will be saved for December opening! Also thanks for all the fun pretty and sparkly ribbons/trappings, I am making some bookmarks at the moment and can use some for dangly bits. HOLD THE PHONE---WHERE DID YOU FIND SOCK MONKEY DUCT TAPE???? I saved the pieces you stuck onto the box, super cute!
Response: Glad you can use the fibers. I have so many! I love them all but really need to learn to "let go" Duct tape is old-maybe I got it at Big Lots. first time I opened the package. Thank you for rating & heart.
Comment: Ooh la la! Thank you so much for my Paris in springtime tree. We are "of an age" as they say. We've read the same kinds of books and probably laugh at the same kind of jokes. You are right, I do still feel newly married so thanks for the congrats. Biographies are my favorites, too; I'll have to find 'Mrs. Lincoln' - who's the author? Glad this swap brought us together!
Response: Glad you liked your card. You 'got' it! sometimes I wonder if people 'get' what I'm trying to say with my cards. Sandra
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely and beaiutiful handmade easter postcard. You've made it very beautifully â˜ºï¸â¤ï¸ðŸ˜‡ . I love crafting too :) let me know if we can swap something handmade :)
Response: I am so happy it did not take long to get to India, Thank you for comments, for rating & a heart
Comment: Thank you so much Sandra for a gorgeous pin up. Also, thank you for the nice note. Yes....I still watch Survivor. I don't think I have ever missed an episode and I still love it. I couldn't believe it was Caleb who got airlifted. The Army vet! I hope they let him come on another season. Anyway, thanks again for the beautiful card. Till next time...
Response: Survivor just gets more interesting all the time this season! Thank you for rating & a heart
Comment: Love the rabbit journal page.Just realized I've been looking at it for awhile on the swap page. :)
Lovely work. I just got back to my YMCA after a knee scope and meniscus repair. Water exercise helps.
Response: glad you are going to Y also.
I loved doing the rabbit. Thank you for rating & Heart
Comment: I received your very nice ATC with a house WITH a door, the extra house and the charms are very nice too, thank you very much. Oh yes, we travelled a lot, but our travels were far from fashionable, on the contrary, often very primitive , but rich in ancient cultures (India, Indonesia, Mexico and so on).
Response: you are one lucky lady to get to travel, thank you for rating, kind words, & a heart too
Comment: Thank you for the heart ATC and nice note. Yes, I have a Gelli-plate, and while it is a little messy, I don't think it is as bad as some other forms of art. And the fun certainly makes it worth the mess! :-)
Comment: Love this ATC. Right now I'm keeping it next to my computer as my "at a glance" calendar.
So happy you had a good trip to Daytona. You're right about the lack of outside seating at Breakers. Glad you checked it out!
Tuesday Morning - Love it/hate it. It's just too much fun for we craft supply hoarders. (out of the mouths of babes, huh?)
Response: Yes, my name is Sandra, & I am a craft supply hoarder......
Thank you for rating & a heart

Response: you are so welcome. I thought it turned out very :Octoberish"
Thank you for rating & the heart
Comment: Thank you for the lovely marigolds & the book page! I don't have a felting board, so maybe you don't need one. I've only done needle felting so far, though, maybe you need one for other types, like nuno felting.
Response: thank you for the advice, I will let her know. thank you too for the kind words & heart
Comment: The page you sent is lovely! And thanks for the book page, too! It's funny, I still love anything Lincoln. I just bought an old kids' Lincoln biography that I remember being on the shelf at my elementary school library! Thanks again - great stuff!
Response: any thing Lincoln is awesome. I have been watching Once upon a time too. Thank you for rating & a heart too.

Response: That bird was one of my favoritesThank you for kind words, rating & a heart too.
Comment: Love this card! It's so beautiful! Hope your trip to Daytona is a lot of fun. Use your sunscreen! LOL. If you're looking for a great burger, head down to The Breakers in New Smyrna. It's my absolute fav. Hmmm, maybe I'll have the hubby take me there for lunch this weekend....
Response: Thank you for Rating & a heart too. The breakers... I will remember that! can't wait. Thank you for Rating & a heart too.
Comment: Hi Sandra! So sorry for the late rating . . . your sweet Halloween ATC is adorable. I love the image of the little girl and her jack-o-lantern. Your paper-layering looks so wonderful and those teen-tiny little foil strips are amazing--what are they? I'd love to get some! Thanks for a wonderful ATC and I'd love to meet together sometime.
Response: Those are Nail Tape from ebay. I love them too! Thank you for a great rating & a heart too
I love the ATC you've sent. I am not all that great at traditional watercolor painting but I know a fair amount about it... totally forgot about the technique you used here. Looks like you dragged the rays out with water and let the color in next?
Anywho, yup, it did snow in the mountains already. Fall here in the valley is usually a little more mild but we usually have snow by Halloween (even if it is just a light dusting).
Thanks again friend!
Response: I thought when I started, (actually had another started) that a sun was so boring. but liked all the colors, reminded me of a great sunrise
Comment: Hi Sandra! Thank you for the ATC, your kind note and the extras :) I'm always happy, if I can add a new PC to my US collection! I hope I can realize the exhibition within a few years. Hugs from Hungary, Tina
Response: wow that was fast! Thank you so much for rating & heart
Comment: Neat interpretation of the assignment! I really enjoy it. :) I love that you pushed the boundaries!
Make sure to include the swap name and your id. I couldn't figure it out and was terrified I'd give credit to the wrong person.
Response: OMG, I really thought I wrote all that on there. I am so forgetful. thank you for the very kind words, rating & for the heart

Response: glad you enjoy the 'little things' thank you for rating & a heart
Comment: Beautiful, as always! And so many sweet extras...but my favorite part was the lovely note. You're a good friend, Sandra...thank you for that! Okay, really? You make me LOL! I love the second one even more than the first, if that's possible...and the embroidered jeans pocket is TO DIE FOR!!! Super cute paper doll stickers...just fabulous!
Comment: Thank you so much for your generous assortment of embossed die cuts. It felt like Christmas digging through the layers, each piece even more fun than the last. I can't wait to use some of them (but I need to finish your flowers before I can "play").
Response: you are welcome! I have to admit, wishing it was an electric machine. I put the deli papers in also because I thought they turned out cool
Comment: Sandra, thank you so much for the awesome vintage cowgirl atc...I love it! I love the old, vintage look and all the embellishments...really nice job. I especially enjoyed reading your nice letter and appreciate your nice compliments! Thanks!
Response: Thank you for the kind words & validation of what I was trying to do. Thank you for rating & heart
Comment: Hi Sandra! I just love this ATC and here's why . . . it just looks so effortless! Did you draw the flowers first or paint first? I would really love to be able to do this type of painting instead of always worrying about staying "inside the lines." I love it!
Response: I just let go! I paint, then draw outline so you can see where the paint was suppose to go..:). Thank you for your very kind words and heart
Comment: Hi Sandra, Thank you for the expertly done, sturdy ATC. I really like it. As always, I appreciate that you read my profile and enjoyed the detailed note you sent. Hope we are partnered again. Sue

Response: you are so welcome, thank you for rating & heart
Comment: What a beauty! I love the cowboy mystique, and this ATC captures all that I love. I grew up watching the old westerns (on black and white TV!). Thank you for all the beautiful die cuts, too...you're a wonderful swap partner!
Response: The Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, Bonanza, to name a few. When we were allowed to watch em...Thank you for rating, heart & kind words.
Comment: It took me a minute to figure it out because you didn't sign your name lol...but not only did I receive this AMAZING PC...I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it! You did a beautiful job and I thank you :-)
Response: oops! TSo Happy when someone loves my work. I want to THANK YOU for rating, heart & of course lovely praise

Comment: What a lovely hand-drawn flower, Sandra! I just love that you used the inside of a biz envie as the background, too! :)

Response: well thank you so much! I always go for the runt of the litter. thank you for rating & heart
Comment: Thank you Sandra! Your card is appealing to my 'weird side" with your "green body parts" Loved it! Are these from a zombie? ;) LOL! Enjoyed your note and sounds like you enjoyed a little R&R recently. :)
Response: yes, R&R was nice, I think it's from a medical book. I've had that photo a long time. Thank you for kind words, rating & heart!
Comment: I fell in love with this beauty on your Flickr page, and had no idea it should have been mine! Sandra, thank you so much for always putting your heart into your art...you are a wonderful swap partner! Edited to add: you did not have to send a replacement, dear! I'm thrilled to have this lovely ode to St. Patrick...and your lovely letter means the world to me. Kindred spirits! Many hearts and hugs from me to you.
Response: you sent me such a warm hearted pm -of course I had to send a replacemnet & letter. Thank you for making Swap-bot a wonderful place
Comment: Thanks for the LOVE-ly page, and the sweet note. I love seeing your name on a swap, too. In fact, that is exactly what I thought when I saw the return address. You would test me on the use it or lose it. I put the lacy die cuts to use on my next PBP and Joan is tucked into my daily journal. ;)
Response: Thank you again Carrie for the kind words, rating & A heart!
Comment: Hi Sandra, It was such a nice surprise seeing you as my swap partner again. It has been such a long time. I sure like your ATC. Especially the texture. Sounds weird I know, but I like to touch the ATC's and feel all the elements that went into them. You really placed a lot of fun stuff to look at. Thank you for your note and your very kind compliments on my creations and my craft room. Many hearts to you today.
Response: your craft room is wonderful!
I thought I would try something different with your card. Glad you like it, thank you for rating & a heart!
Comment: I have received your Fall art postcard, it took a little while getting to me I think because it had to be forwarded to my new address. I enjoyed the scene you chose & I love that quote! Thank you!
Response: I took the photo on a country rd in OHIO, I think it screams 'Fall" Thank you for rating
Comment: thanks for the cute sack o' stuff...love it...and your note..and yes love the donkeys...Frankie the baby (he's grown but will always be the baby donkey) ate an apple out of my hand...yesterday..love the atc. so cute..thanks for a great swap...
Comment: Loved you steampunk bike. How much fun was that? And the extras. Thank you by much for everything. Surgery went well. I was home in less than 24 hours and we had my brother and his wife over for meatloaf that night, so I guess I was doing pretty good. Shoulder not really very sore (thank goodness)! Guess it was so sore before that even cutting it out was better! Doesn't sound better does it. Dusty leaves tomorrow yo go back to illinois and be a lawyer. Jamie and I stay here in florida to stay warm! Have to have the other shoulder fixed in March. Can't wait (lol) thank you again for a wonderful swap and asking about me. Happy holidays. PatðŸŽ…
Response: So glad you are doing better, thank you for rating & heart. I understand about "cutting it out would be better" you were in so much pain.
Comment: Beautiful, as always...I love how you've embellished. So fun. (Is that how you're wearing your hair these days?)
Response: Ha! thank you but no, not yet. I could it's as long now as it was in HS many years ago. As always thank you for the kind words & rating-oh I did find a small stamp like that the other day-ATC size :)
Comment: Wow, Sandra, you outdid yourself! :D Thank you for the lovely gifts, you definitely went above and beyond with what you sent. I liked your letter as well. I'm glad you thought of me when you saw a nerd costume. :D Thanks again!
Response: I hope you have a wonderful birthday, and there is something in that box you can use :) Thank you for rating & heart
Comment: Thank you - thank you - thank you!!!
What a wonderful crappy collage you sent to me and how clever using a clip board. I really love it. I had one of those blinking eyes from ages ago and I taped it on to the metal part, every time I walk by it the lid goes up and down. Also many thanks for the book, so nice and your nice note and the package of glitter. This was an extraordinary package.
The 'Holy Crap' group is the best I think.
Thanks again, you deserve a handful of hearts.
Response: What praise! I would love to see your blinking light on it. They were throwing those out at work years ago, and I just came across it again -so I thought that would be perfect. Thank you for rating & Heart
Comment: Thank you for the ATCs and the paper. I am with you.... I just don't get this White Crayon Resist. I also did quite a few. I loved your nice letter.Thank you! I think you are very creative as well. :)
Comment: Beautiful card Sandra! I love it! Thanks for the birthday wishes and other sweet comments you made in your note. I wanted to say thank you and to you and your daughter for her military service! It's not an easy life to live. :) We are going back to Charleston this November for a family vacation. Can't wait to see the beach and all my old friends. Take care.
Response: Wow thank you so much for rating, heart, & comment. You are the first to do that. have a safe trip.
Comment: Beautiful work. Thank you so much and for the extras as well!! Exactly what I needed for something. I do not clean or hunt in the rain lol. I do draw the line. If I didn't have cold weather equipment, there would be no camping in the cold either!
Response: You are so welcome, thank you for rating & heart. Happy outdoor days to you & yours!
Comment: Ah, Sandra...it's always a joy to see an envelope from you! I am such a fan of your beautiful work, and this ATC is stunning...I am thrilled to add it to my collection! A hundred hearts, and several gentle hugs, my friend!

Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you! The pages are awesome! And thanks for the goodies! I don't have that color of distress pad and I will definitely enjoy using it! I can hardly believe it's done. My book will get bound now and it will look fabulous! Thanks for swapping with me.
Response: Georgia, it's been fun doing this series, took awhile but I enjoyed it to. Glad you can use the ink pad!
Comment: OMG...I LOVE this page!!! You are amazing. Am I allowed to post a comment bragging that I got the swap photo page??Haha. You do amazing work-it is how I WISH my pages would turn out but never do :( Thanks for the inspiration! Oh...and the ink pad and papers-wow, too generous!!!
Response: it's yours, do with it as you wish...thank you for the kind words, you've been a great partner during these swaps!
Comment: Nice ATC. Very well done. And yes I had a great birthday with my buddies. Jamie is visiting her new grandson in Kentucky and has watched all of the episodes of orange is the new black, so I now have to catch up. Sounds like a marathon,eh?
Response: I watch while I make things, glad you like your atc, thank you for kind words, rating & a heart!
Comment: Wow! What a novel approach to a house ATC! I absolutely love it! It is a magical little cottage that I wish I could live in. Thank you so very much for your beautiful creativity and the lovely letter. Great swap:)
Response: great! glad you liked your cottage
thank you for rating & the heart!
Comment: Your piece finally came! It is very beautiful. The envelope was torn but I could see you mailed it back in February. It was a little beat up but that just adds to the vintage beauty. Thanks so much! :)
Response: you are right, that was a heck of a long time! I agree ,when I get those type, I think it just adds. Thank your for rating and a heart!
Comment: Great 'G'ear! Love the gears...thanks for an extra one. Dogs...yes...that's what they are...mixed breeds none related! Gotta love 'em. Traveling to Ohio Friday, 1st Cincinnati for a wedding then Camden for a visit. Thanks for hosting. See ya at the mail box.

I'll have to work a triskele into a zentangle, I haven't tried that! I've done a tree of life a few times, that was fun. Definitely check out Warehouse 13, it's a fun show.
Response: Love Warehouse 13 would love to see the set. thank you for kind words, rating & a heart!

Comment: Thank you so much for so many things!!! The letter was incredibly kind. My hubby has been back and forth on training. He has been gone more than we was here for the last 6 months. Two weeks from today he deploys for 11 months. He will be on a Naval Carrier in the Mediterranean as well as the horn of Africa when doing land missions. He flies the V-22 Osprey (helicopter) with the Marine Corps. I LOVE Pinterest. I have found a ton of care package ideas for him on there! And I am glad you got some beach time!! We practically live at the beach year round. The ATC you made is absolutely stunning! I hope I can one day be as talented as you! I am just learning and have a loooong way to go. And I love the extra goodies too! My husband will be gone for Valentine's Day so I am sending him a care package this week (even though he doesn't leave for 2 weeks, he will make it to the ship before the mail does), and am going to include the scratch off love lottery tickets. I think I need to find him some more of those as well! Too fun! I hope we can swap again soon!!
Response: The tickets came from Walmart
so glad you are happy. Won't he be surprised to get a package already! Thank you for rating & heart also.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty ATC and extras. I always enjoy your letters telling me a bit about your life. Thank you for your kind comments about my art on Flickr. I have you for partner in a swap so I'll send you a letter soon! :)
Comment: Hi Sandra. I so much enjoyed reading your letter and receiving such a pretty ATC. I admit, I just copied your envie and note embellishment on my ATC i just made. I love the vintage image you used and the glimmery background. Thank you so much for a very nice swap. Many hearts to you today!!
Response: What a nice comment from you for my 500th heart! thank you so much, I loved the envie, and note also. It was hard to give it up :). Glad you love it too.
Thank you again.
Comment: Beautiful ATC! I love how you combined the abstract geometrical feel of Kandinsky's work with a softer background! And yes, I need to update my online presence, including relisting some of my artwork on zibbet and changing my profile now that the baby is over a year old ;)
Response: I thought this would be an ez swap, but really it wasn't for me. Thank you so much for rating me and a heart!
Comment: Hi Sandra, thank you so much for the wonderful ATC you made for me! I love it. Thank you as well for all the lovely extras; pink embellishment, papers. I loved receiving your letter too! You have made me very happy! Hugs from Australia to you! Kelly xxx
Response: Ahh, you are so sweet, thank you for rating & a heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for your great "Black Cat" atc, Sandra! Love it! Halloween is my favorite time of the year - bring out the skulls, skeletons, goblins!! (Oh, wait, I leave those out all year anyway! I'll just add some pumpkins and orange lights!)
Response: cute, halloween has some of my favorite color combos!
Thank you for rating & a heart
Comment: Wow!!!! Sandra, thank you soooo much! I loved the ATC. Makes me think that I might be able to actually make one!!!! My mail person put all my mail at my neighbors on Thursday. And he just brought this over this morning!!!!

Response: THANK you for rating & Heart
short nose dogs are the best!
Comment: Thanks for the very nice note! I do need to edit my profile -- I deleted the explanation abour my breast cancer when I added the part about finishing the radiation. I guess I was too excited to think that one needed the other for clarification! I was diagnosed mid-March, had a lumpectomy on 1 April and a second surgery (because the wound from the first became infected) on 29 April and started the radiation follow-up on 20 May. Pretty much lost most of the summer, but I am feeling fine now except for the hot flashes caused by the Tamoxifen which is follow-up therapy. Thanks for asking, and congratulations on your decision to be baptized. I don't think you could be doing anything better, and I hope you have a church full of love and joy. Blessings, and happy swapping!
Response: Thank y ou for sharing, I am so happy to hear you are doing better now, I know it will continue. Oh and thank you for rating & heart!
Comment: I love the wagon page. When my grand girls were younger, I would take them to the zoo every year the day before school started. We always took the wagon so whoever got tired could ride for a bit. Unfortunately, it was usually me, and I didn't fit in the wagon!
Response: I don't know how the grand children manage to 'steal" all our energy. Thank you for rating & heart
Comment: I enjoyed your ATC but especially your newsy note! I hope your family had as much fun as I did working on the psych wards. Very interesting work! And I too have many hopes of taking another cruise. Thanks for your good wishes!
Response: I am sure there are many tales I will never hear! Thank you for rating & a heart
Comment: Thanks so much for the Z page! I enjoyed your letter - it's a small world sometimes. Perhaps I'll get you next time. :-) And I'll post to flikr once I get my scanner hooked up or find my camera battery, such is my life lately . . .
Response: I would love to see your photos! Thank you for rating & a heart for Z!
Comment: Thanks for the pretty card, the nice letter and the ATC. Yes, I think our season has been much like yours. I've lived, as you guess in NYC, but also upstate where it's very cold and snowy,and I great up in Indiana - so with springs much like those in Ohio.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Paris atc :) I just love the form of the Eiffel Tower. Surprisingly, when I went to Paris I still haven't visited it, lol. Just saw it from a distance. Maybe next time! My husband is from Belgium so I'm blessed with the opportunity to go there and other side trips around Europe every year.
Response: you are one lucky girl!
Now you know you have to take photos, even in a distance. Thank you for rating & a heart!
Comment: Your cards are lovely and so funny! Thanks for the extra one. I also really enjoyed your letter! We seem to have a lot in common, from the same illness to riding motorcycles (though mine were a Honda and a BMW). Just back from spring break (yes, I'm in college) and re-adapting to getting up early, but I plan to PM you soon in response to your letter. Thanks again! :D
Response: Glad u liked the cards, I get nervous sending, what I think is funny. Thank you for the comments, rating & a heart!
Comment: I loved your ATC and the note you sent with it. I think it is extra special when someone takes the time to write a note. Thank you! It means a lot to me. I was reading your profile and I agree it would be great to sit down and have a cup of coffee and visit. We would have to keep it a secret from my kitty Archer... He doesn't know there are dog people out there =)
Response: That's okay, my dogs don't know cats,expect as they are moving toys...Thank you for your great comments, rating & heart!
Comment: Thank you for such a nice letter and very cute ATC. I really appreciate you reading my profile and writing. I plant my own potted flowers and could ting down the days to do so again. Oh, and the toilet paper roll books are precious! YouTube has great videos on them.
Response: Another thing to look into. :)
thank you for rating & a Heart!
Comment: How cute! Thanks for the rabbit atc. Also, thanks for the thoughtful note and goodies! the greek pages were number 812... my birthday! :)
Also, do check out Free Art Friday! A super gal does FAF in Yellow Springs about an hour away from you. Check her out..."jafabrit". Thanks again!!
Response: okay i will, thank you for rating & a heart!
Comment: Sandra,thanks for the lovely ATC! Its done so well! And glittery! : )
I have never gone to the CMA on sundays. I visit my dad then,and busy with church. It sounds like an inexpensive place to visit though! And I haven't seen the butterflies either! I need to get out more! Thanks again!

warning, it's hot in there :)
thank you for rating & heart
Comment: Hello! Thank you very much for the great flapper ATC! Lovely. I appreciate the nice note and the little extras. Yes, feel free to jump on any of those swap themes - superstition, cats, corgis. LOL. Thanks again and thanks for signing up for my swap! XOXO
Response: ahh, thank you for the kind words, rating & a Heart!
Comment: This is the first ATC card I have received I am now hooked and will become a regular ATC swapper. It is gorgeous. I saw it posted on flicker the same day I received it and thought that was so neat. Thank you so much for the other items. Love everything.
Response: Saw it on Flickr...I have only had that happen once. looked good on Flickr, but much better in my hands. Thank your for rating & a heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for another wonderful ATC, Miss Sandra...and for the great extras. My favorite thing of all was the note you sent (you read my blog!) about our grandmothers. I know I have lots of relatives in Indiana; my grandma came from a large family. I've never met any of them. :-(
Response: Thank you for the great rating & a Heart you are one sweet lady
Comment: It isn't the appearance of plus size clothing that bothers me, but the fact that it is poorly constructed and extremely expensive. If I'm supposed to pay $85 for a pair of jeans, they should hold up under casual usage for more than a few months, you know?
Response: Yes, I am afraid I do!
thank you for rating & A heart!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the AWESOME page!!!! I LOVE, LOVE everything about it and you gave me some great ideas - especially the way you did the tag insert. Thanks as well for your wonderful compliments. You've inspired me to get my butt in gear with my blog. I hope to swap with you again soon Sandra.
Response: Ah, thank you Michelle! I thought he turned out cute also! thank your for rating & a heart too!
Comment: Love the pin. Zaggle is a company that you can buy pcs from. Some people don't like them cause they are not as sturdy as normal pcs. I think they are cool. Settlers of Catan is a board game made of hexagons that changes each time cause u reshuffle it each time. IT ROCKS!
Response: thank you for rateing & Heart I will check it out!
Comment: That is great-now I know someone who has my same birthday-thanks for the belated greetings.Great black cat and witch ATC-thanks for all the extra papers and the nice letter-I do love it when a magazine features Poe and this is no exception! Thanks for swapping!
Response: oh thank you! And thank you for rating & a heart!
Comment: Love the ATC!! The letter you wrote was so personable and thoughtful. I do all the laundry myself now that I am left with five boys at home, all my girls are fone...however they will help fold. When I workedon the weekends...my 15 yo would wash the clothes and I also will get them to hang out the laundry...lol! I really never sleep much and I'm always hyper...thaks again for everything!!! It was so nice to receive from you!! Have a beautiful day, Hugs, Dawn Gallop stampmom9
Response: Hanging laundry, that brings back many memories! Thank you for rating & a hearT!
Comment: thank you, i now know what book art is. i had so much fun getting the book out and each and every page is a delight. even the little silver thing is specail. i think you are right about space being a big part of the solution for storage. i have moved on. if i think it might be to serious i don't sign up.
thank you again the book is just fab
Response: Thank you for rating & a heart! The book was fun to make,
Comment: Sandra, I absolutely love your atc!! It just looks so well put together and love the skull key! And love the Tim Burton saying! Thank you so much. And to make this an even more outstanding swap, you wrote me a great note! I hope I get you for a partner more often!!

Comment: Nice work, Thank You! And, thank you for the extra moon ATC.It's true, I don't have any of my handcrafted lovelies on etsy. Not sure why.I do send the fabric postcards through the mail, but I have them hand canceled. I think the postage may be a little more. Thanks again!
Response: Pin up girls are fun, Hope to see your lovelies on etsy soon, thank you for a heart & for rati!ng too
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty ATC, and for your kind words! (Don't worry, no tetanus for me, haha - and my hand is healed now. Just have a lovely scar on my palm, but I can deal with that!)
Response: I have the same scar! glad you liked your card so much u rated & gave me a heart!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your letter, we have a lot in common and I love both the ATCs, pink and glittery and the vintage phone calendar are both really cool. The ATC ephemera will be used soon, Thanks for being a great swap partner, Doskie
Response: That was fun reading your profile also!
glad you had a great vacation! Sandra
Comment: Hi Sandra, Yes, I do think we have been partnered before. I loved my ATC. It was beautifully done and I liked that the colors were a bit unconventional. What a nice letter you wrote after reading my profile. The extra paper will be put to good use. I do not post on flickr, but one of my swap buddies told me I should. I wish I had done it all along, but I didn't. Thank you for a very nice swap. I love every bit of it. Sue.
Response: I always try to be 'different' if not weird :). Thank you for the nice Rating. Maybe u didn't use flickr before, but you can start today...
Comment: Great atc!! I love it! How fun it was to also rc a letter, I forgot how much I love to read them....:o) I need to figure out how to set up a flicker acct. I have kept pics of all swap-bot projects. thank you for everything, very nice!!
Response: You will see it is very easy now adays.. Thank you for the heart & rating
Comment: Hi, Sandra! Your page has been here for awhile, but I haven't; sorry for the delay in the rating. I love the page and your note and the wonderful extras. This will be a lovely addition to my book. Thank you! Kathy
Response: Thank you for the heart & rating glad you enjoyed it, it's something I have never done before, & had no idea what I was going to do!
Comment: Thank you so much Sandra for the lovely atc and note! I'm sorry to say that I have not updated my Flickr to pro status due to trying to cut back on unnecessary spending... I have some welded art stuff that I did back in 2009 and early 2010... but not so much lately... I have had other things take priority. But would love love love to one day get back and make sparks! Trying to save up for a combo mig/tig welder oh well one day... its on my 'bucket list ha! As for my blog...it's been sadly neglected :( I am so busy right now with end of the year school stuff plus we will be going on a big road trip in July out east that I have to get organized... so much to do not enough time lol! Anyway, thanks again for my lovely swap and hope you and yours have a fun and safe holiday weekend! :-) mary ann
Response: Ah Sucks Mary Ann! thank you just doesn't seem enough!
Comment: Newsflash--received a GREAT spring package from you!! So many cute things. I adore the little "SPRING" dimensional box--PERFECT for a card. Cute note pad (already on 'fridge--and I adore the stickers you sent! Evidently we can't get those here--I've never seen that brand, They are AWESOME. Wonderful spring package--many thanks!!
Response: Glad you liked 'our' OHIO spring collection! Love comments, thank you for rating & heart!
Comment: Wow! Love the flowers. What type of medium did you use?? It has a very interesting finish to it. I too agree about doing a whole journal... I made some & have been flaked on...doing just one page is much safer...than doing all that work and it getting lost or getting flaked. So I love these i page art swaps....then you can make an art journal from all your new art friends. What a wonder treasure. Thanks for yours. And thanks for all the extras. I can use them. bearnbabs
Response: Are you kidding? I was so worried you would say what the heck?
It is really all watercolor! I have no training so I don't know what I am doing. the top coat was a copper metallic watercolor. Thank you for heart & rating Sandra
Comment: Thank you for a very fun, happy! ATC. I really enjoyed your letter, too. Yes, I've gotten an old, lovely drawer handle once and several foreign coins. I have matchboxes in a bowl, and no, I've never been to the Theater of Dreams...yet :) Happy swapping!
Response: Thank you for heart & rating! Don't forget me when you get to go to the Theater of Dreams
Comment: Love the kitten! And the whole page. Thanks for the extras...sweet leaf. Originally from Oxford, Ohio near the Indiana border. Watercolors? New there and not sure that I have what it takes for them. See ya at the mail box. Oh yah...old is only a word. So be young at heart!
Response: young at heart........they should make a song like that!
Thank you for the kind words, heart & rating
Comment: Thank you so much for taking time to read my profile and making the ATC. Its my 1st one and I love it, you did a great job, and the extra papers will allow me to try one too! I appreciate the time you took to write the note as well! Great swap! <3 <3 <3
Comment: Thank you for both a lovely ATC and letter! No, no one got on me for being a day or two late (that hasn't happened yet!) but for marking sent a couple of days before the postmark on the envie...and yes, the items were sent well within the sending period, not after! Some people, right? Of course, this is what happens when you send on a Saturday afternoon at a blue letterbox, but let's not let common sense get in the way of a good nasty.
I was pleased to hear about your kids too. Go blue! :D Do they like the AF?
Again, thank you so much. What a great surprise in the mail. ♥
Response: yes, they love the AF so happy you liked your card & letter! thank you for the great response & heart!
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC! You put so many wonderful layers on the card,great job! The paper bead swap might be a regular swap, i think she said that,if there was interest.Maybe you'll be able to join that swap! Thanks again! I hope you don't get much snow today!
Response: Thank you for the comments, rating & a heart. we have too much snow for the dog. He wants in almost as bad as he wanted out!
Comment: Thanks ever so much for the pc"s, the Christmas papers & dictionary pages. I can use them in my art pages. Yeah, after the holidays...it's down time & peace & quiet. Love it. And thanks again for swapping with me.bearnbabs
Response: So happy to hear they finally arrived. I could have drove them there & back a few times. good to know they are 'home' now. Thank you for rating *& a heart!
Comment: Thanks for the great snowman ATC. Lots going on there, I like that. I enjoyed your note. Yes I was lucky on the art journal swap, I got a great one in return. Then not only did my partner really like mine, but she sent it back to me because it was my 1st one! That was such an act of kindness, I think. There are some great people out there on swap-bot.Thanks again & Happy Holidays.
Response: that was beyond an act of kindness, I think journals are very personal! you are one lucky girl! Have a great holiday & thank your for rating & a heart too!
Comment: The pages are fantastic. They are SO different from each other and just so elaborate. I was trying to decide whether it would have taken you more time to do the red (fabric) one or the yellow (owl) one. And trying to decide whether I like the owl one or the green (trees) best - hand-drawn for the trees tips me in favour of that, but the owl is so darned cute!
Response: Pam, I am happy you loved your pages. thank you for the heart too! Hope your join more "Page by Page' swaps
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely ATC, Sandra! It's very pretty...and I love the fibre you attached to it....so creative! Thank you also for the vintage images and the lovely note you wrote...a wonderful swap! :)
Response: Thank you for rating & a heart! Thank you for the kind words. I was please with the way it turned out too!
Comment: See I knew it. The card is absolutely great.I did love that poem as well. Your embellishments were super.

My other daughter is having us all for Thanksgiving. Sounds lke you all have family thanksgiving every Friday.
Response: Congrats on the coming grandbaby! glad u like the card!
Comment: Sandra/ I love my newest ATC done so fabulously by you plus all of the extras were super fun! I can't wait for the next one, you rock! (...and you're right, I am ridiculously busy but my art keeps me sane so I always make time for it and swap-bot helps me do just that!)
Comment: Sandra, Amazing water color artwork on your ATC. The colors are awesome!! I appreciate your ATC along with your special surprises. Thank you so very very much!! :-) The cut out card pumpkin is absolutely adorable too. I cannot leave out my gratitude for your nice letter on adorable pumpkin stationary. I guess I need to add dotee's as to one of my "loves", thanks for the reminder. And ha ha, loving still my front porch. Actually that is where I opened your letter. Moved my potted plants indoors now being fall. Quite a nip in the air at night. :-)
I have not been to a flea market for ages as I too am not working now due to a vehicle accident. Wish I had a money tree, ha ha. Thank you again, Sheryl
Response: Can't ask for a better rating than this, thank you for rating & a heart. I am jealous of your porch!
Comment: I adore the beautiful white tip in page! I love the back too, and you didn't have to decorate the back! So much heart goes into your work. I don't know how else to describe this, but first holding it I felt this lovely calm feeling go up my arms and uncoil something inside. Thank you so much. I will cherish it always. And what a charming letter you wrote to me! I'll be sending you one back : )
Response: Can't ask for a better rating than a calming effect! Glad you like it thank your for rating & a heart too.
Comment: Thanks for another lovely swap Sandra ... I love the way you hid the tag inside! Now, I need to finish mine up and get it sent - just received the perfect embellishment for it in another swap!
Response: that is what I love about swap bot you never know what you will get...! Thank you for rating & the heart!
Comment: Awesome ATC! I love it--my desk sort of looks like this too, lol. Very scrappy! Thank you for all the little extra goodies-I love paper doilies and the ATC paper is beautiful. Great partner! Maybe I'll send you a deco or two sometime so you can give it a try. You might really like them since you like ATC's.
Response: Thank you, if I didn't have to send it I might have kept it. Good think I had to send it. A Deco example would be wonderful! Thank you for rating & heart!
Comment: Thank you for my FABULOUS ATC, I adore it. I love that you sewed on it. I can't sew a lick. It is truely beautiful. I think you should continue to create because that is who you are! Be you, do what you LOVE!! Craft away friend. Hugs, Mona PS-Thank you for all the great extras. Love the magnet!!!
Response: Thank you for rating & a heart! Your beautiful create statement came just in time, thank you!
Comment: Thanks a lot for the very nice package. I like the atc you sent. Unfortunately, the mail arrived late because they had to found out my address because it incorrect or rather unreadable (because of the stamp, maybe?). I appreciate that you read my profile :-) Thank you for all :-)
Response: thank you for rating & a heart!
Yes, I am sure it was the stamp. Should have put the stamp on first. lesson learned! Glad u liked it!
Comment: Sandra, I had seen this on your flickr, but didn't realize I was getting it . . . thank you, it's really lovely! The extras are so nice too, those are definitely not my grandmother's rub-ons, and the scrapbooking stickers are very cute!
Response: I tried to make each of the color pages completely different from each other. wish I had made myself one of each :-)
Comment: I got your list today Sandra and I'm glad that one of the things you can do now is sleep! That's one thing that doesn't come so easily to me anymore. :o) I enjoyed this swap.. nice to have met you! Pat
Response: no, that was a mistake, sleeping comes at weird times. my night time sleeping it drug induced....:-)
Comment: Lovely card as always...clever too. As to the studio... hmmm just say i am working on it between knee replacements... Looking at deadline of maybe 2015.

Comment: Hi Sandra, I love the ATC!! Where did you find the pictures and the sayings? I have a hard time finding things like that. Again, thanks for the great ATC! By the way, we have plenty of humidity...so you can keep yours! But I'll let you know if I need some! Nancy (grannystamper)
Response: Images are on the internet as well as the quotes. I love both so this works well for me. Not everyone shares my humor though....what can I say? :-)
Comment: Sandra, you deserve several hearts. What a generous sampling of goodies to choose from! I have them all placed on my work table, for inspiration...and I hope the finished product makes you as happy as your package makes me!
