Comment: 7/3/2019: Received journal of lists and entries. Ciara sent extras and a note apologizing for the lateness. Thank you for all the extras! Changing from "1" to a "3" , Hope you have a good 4th of July weekend!
6/24/2019 : Rating her a 1 until the swap arrives in mailbox. Hate to do this, but I hope to hear from her soon about an update. Coordinator of the swap has been contacted.
Last email I sent was June 15th to her asking her if she has found it yet. She has not read it yet/been online.
June 12th 2019 : Partner emailed me saying she misplaced her journal but would let me know if she ever found it.
Comment: OH! I love her. She is so gothic. You did a great job.love the trims and ribbons you used. I’ll name her Lenore and she will go in my Poe shrine area of my craft room. Thanks for the addition!!!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely little journal that arrived yesterday. While the text is all written very neatly, I am unable to read it. Due to medical issues, I am losing my vision and am unable to see the text written with light colored ink. I do appreciate all the work you put into the journal. My husband will read it to me. Thank you.
Comment: Thank you for the letter! I love it!! I too love the water and wanted to be a marine biologist! But I am land locked here in Iowa so I decided against it. :( I'm still young though so I might be able to change that one day!
Comment: Your flipbook was really cute. I liked the gold doilies especially. I am rating a 3 because it was mailed late (next time send an email beforehand if you are going to be late) and it didn't meet swap requirements. The requirements are at least 3 folds (yours had 2). **Swapper emailed me and offered to send a re-send but I declined (due to doesn't change the 3 because late). Very friendly in correspondence.
Response: I don't remember sending it late? Omg I was thinking it was 3 flips but it was 3 sections :( ugh . I hand drew valentine pieces of ephemera.
Comment: Sorry for the late rating! I’m just now clearing out my 2017 sent swaps and noticed this was still open. My apologies!
Have a wonderful holiday season. :)
Ps. My Wand now sits in my window sill and I see it every time I craft!!
Comment: Thanks for the photos Ciara! I love the fact that adopted your pets and continue to do so. Your doggy looks very cute, my gf loved the picture and story about him. Falere looks intimidating but cool, I've never thought to get a lizard as a pet haha. Also, I'm sorry about Corndog, he looks very cute in the picture and it's very noble that you want to continue adopting unwanted hamsters. Thanks again for the great pictures, your pets are lovely!
Thank you for the sticky notes and bookmark as well ^^
Comment: Thank you for sharing! I have a jackchi [jack russell/chihuahua] who everyone thinks is a puppy but shes 3 years old. The chi mixed with anything seems to give them puppy features. Your pets are adorable, and thank you for taking on Fin and giving him the love that he deserves!
Comment: Yey I got my plush! Thank you so much for the fabulous lil photo album you did and for the super extras! Frankenmuth sounds like a fabulous place to visit! My hubby and I would love the Halloween shop too! Xoxoxo
Comment: I always enter these envelope swaps and it's always the same! I get such wonderful envelopes I can't bear to use them! I love love these.. I found a place to get old music sheets and I really like using them you used these so creatively... Thanks so much ...
Comment: This package was amazing. I loved how creative your "invitation" was. I thought this swap was so great and a unique way to see other people creativity. The cup you chose was simply darling, i love the coloring and it also kinda reminds me of milk glass (thats what i was thinking when I opened it up. Thanks so much for making Christmas special!
Comment: Thanks for an interesting collection. However, It would be good if You added a description, or a name to each pin. I got the concept that You would like to be a Mermaid, Golden Queen etc. but when the pin cation says "Indian jewellary", it seem as if You would like to "sport that look", rather than "be her" ... & the top 3 pins have no caption :(
Comment: Thank you so much for all the goodies! I loved everything, the sea star was sooo cool. and the prickly thing brought back such memories. They used to grow behind where we lived when I was a kid and my mom and I would go out and collect them so that she could put them in dried flower arrangements and we even painted some and put google eyes on them and made ornaments. I so wish I had them! Thank you for the great goodies and the memories!
Comment: Ive sent a message about this swap, was marked sent three days after the mail by deadline. You've been online and haven't replied to my message.
So here is the one! As soon as I see something in the mail from you I will amend my rating.
updated: 4/9/2015 I was nice and removed the one rating almos two weeks ago when she said it would be nice. I still have not seen these ATC in the mail!! There has been no other communication between us and the last message that I sent about a missing rating from her goes unread though shes been online since i have sent it. I will not be removing this rating of a one until I see these ATC in my hand. Sorry to be so harsh but this just has turned into MONTHS of waiting for THREE ATC. Its even a subject that you seem to enjoy so I am at a total loss here!
UPDATED 4/20/2015. Received today with the extras sorry, this will remain a three!
Comment: Dear Ciara - Thank you so much for the 100 questions swap which arrived just now. I'm off to make a coffee and settle down for a nice long read. All the best and happy swapping Jane x (jep1068)
Comment: Wow, this swap is awesome. The chechire cat craft, I'm going to hang that on my wall^_^ Stationary is always useful. But the key is my favorite.:-) But everything in the parcel was great. And LOL you said there was no Donald Dick, but the first thing I see when I opened the cards pack: Donald Duck:-D Thank you!
Comment: You posted these today on my profile. Next time, try to post on time or send me a message saying you will be posting them later or forgot.Thank you for adding some Sam sexiness to my page!! <3 :)
Comment: What a beautiful and diverse family of pets. You are are a true lover of all animals as am I. The photos brightened my day, wish I would get more emails like yours. Thank you also for the little, introduction of each pet , so heartwarming.
Comment: Thanks so much for the envelope of fun things! I am looking forward to using everything. Especially appreciate the little ATC starter kit! Yay! I may work on that while sipping some of the coffee you sent. :o) Thanks again!!!
Comment: Thank you for the beads! I did this swap for my daughter (she makes jewelry) and she was pleasantly surprised that they were quality beads and said "thank you for not sending just plastic ones".
Comment: You spoiled me rotten! The ear necklace is too awesome! I love everything you sent, but my favorite is the Daryl embroidery. I will be hanging it on my wall o' awesome shit. I may even hang up the ears on the wall as well. Thanks so very much.
Comment: Hi, you sent out the swap 11 days after the deadline without a message and the embroidery was poorly finished in the hoop. I understand you were dealing with family issues, but you could have let me know and I would have given you time to finish it nicely. I hope you understand my rating.
Updated 8.15.2013: Thanks for sending the extras.
Comment: Thank you for sharing all about your pets. I have a Siamese Cat named Pudge who "talks" all the time:-) I am still not sure which meow is water and which meow is door. I am always at the wrong place...LOL!
Response: my cats the same way, she has different cries and meows for different things like food .
