Comment: Thank you for an absolutely lovely postalette-- it was just beautiful! I apologize for the late rating, I thought I'd already rated before my break from swap-bot. Thanks again for your kindness. ♥
Comment: Great background, and I love your cute little drawings of the fish and jellyfish! The weather here has also been up, down and all around: over 100F for the last 6 days, but only 68F today. (";)
Comment: Thank you so much for the most wonderful ATC ever! So creative and imaginative! I've found a spot for it in my studio on the sill :) Thank you for sharing your talent!
Response: Oh, wow! I can't believe I made the most wonderful ATC ever, but I'm so glad I apparently did and you like it! :) I really am so glad you like it and thank you for your lovely comment, the heart and the prompt rating.
Comment: Thank you for the cheery HM PC!
I do have a project on a back burner that can def. use the bird stamps!
Magnolia's are just coming out here now and bushes ate looking more green than brown...
We may have survived another winter! lol
Response: Yay! I'm so glad that it made it to you this time! (the first time it was returned to me due to a post office mistake, for those who are reading this and I sent it out again the next day.) I'm glad you like it and that you can use the stamps. :) I tried to make it as "birdy" as possible. Have a lovely spring! and thank you for the prompt rating and heart. :)
Comment: Elizabeth, thanks for the lovely spring ATC and your handwritten note. They definitely brightened up my day. It's already summer here in India, so I miss spring too!
Response: I'm so glad it made it there, safe and sound. :) I'm also so glad your day was brightened by what I sent. :) Thank you for the prompt rating and heart, and I do wish spring could have stayed with you a little longer, but say hello to summer for me. :)
Comment: Your creation is adorable! Thank you for bringing that bit of sunshine into my day today, and thank you for your lovely note. I, too, am eager for the warmer temps so that I can put our vegetables and herbs out on the balcony. Better yet, I'm hoping to soon see that old familiar sign of home that says, "Welcome to Florida." Happy Crafting and Swapping!
Response: I'm so glad you like it! It was fun to create. :) Enjoy the warmer temperatures and the Springtime! Happy Crafting and Swapping to you, too. :) Also, thank you for the prompt rating and heart. :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! This year's winter has been unusually warm so far. No snow yet either...
Happy Holiday season, take care!!
edit 22-12: oops... I received this card last wednesday, I left this comment but forgot to check the boxes 5 and heart so the rating didn't show up, sorry
Response: I hope you had a wonderful Christmas season! Thank you for the lovely comment and heart. :)
Comment: Thank you for your postcard, for the clear postmark on it, and for telling me about the lighthouse! Your note about the top being set on fire to deny the use of it to enemy troops reminded me of a documentary on the River Rhine which I watched part of the other day, where they mentioned a railway bridge which had been detonated by the Germans during World War II to stop the French from using it. Though unlike your lighthouse, the bridge didn't get rebuilt! And now you just see the pillars standing around with no rail connection running over them. Happy holidays to you and all the best in the new year!
Response: Thank you so much for the great comment here and the heart. Hope you had a lovely holiday season! :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard. I love lighthouses. I've visited a few, but never climbed to the top. Someday...
Response: Thank you for the kind words and heart! I have seen shorter lighthouses when I visited Prince Edward Island, Canada a few years ago...but the one on Tybee Island is the only one that I've been inside of (all the way to the top!) I hope you will have the opportunity to go inside and climb one someday, too. :)
Comment: LOVED the trees!!! I knew exactly what they were as I love modern/abstract. Fall is pretty in Utah, but not as pretty as it is in the northeast. I love fall, but it is a little ominous of winter - and I don't like the cold! Thanks for joining this swap and for the beautiful card!!! Hugs -
Response: I'm glad you figured out they were trees right away. :) Thank you for the kind words and prompt rating and heart. :) It was a fun swap. Thank you for hosting!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful pc Elizabeth! I was pretty impressed that I finally got the infamous "goosey" for a swap partner - YAY! Thanks to our wonderful friend, Diane. :-) And yes, I love flowers, thanks for looking at my profile first. So few people do that now a days. Am wondering if I may request you as a friend on here? If not, no hard feelings and happy swapping! Hugs, Susan :-)
Response: I'm "infamous"?! I hope in a good way. ;) I'm glad you liked the postcard. Thank you for the prompt rating and heart and I've already approved your friend request here. :) Thank you! (oh, and yes, Diane *is* a wonderful friend.) ;)
Comment: It's here!! It's here!! YAY for goosey mail!! I can see why you liked this card so much, what a great idea! Of course I love the super sparkly green ink you used as well :D Thanks for such an awesome swap, I will treasure these forever! (and great tips too!)
Response: YAY!!! I'm so glad it arrived safe and sound. :) Thank you for your kind patience while that first card went around the world and back again, but I am glad it found its way back to me so I could send it again and its friend it picked up along the way. ;) Thank you for the prompt rating and heart. I wish I could give you a heart for being a wonderful partner to me. :)
Comment: Thank you for lovely booklet with doodles! I can see you had fun with this swap! :) And thank you for extra stamps!
Response: Yay! I'm glad it got there safe and sound. :) I'm also very happy that you liked my doddles. :) It WAS a lot of fun. Thank you for hosting and you're welcome about the stamps. Thank you for the heart! :D
Comment: Thank you so much for your cute calendar envelope and adorable notecard with the strawberry theme, what fun :) I also like how you can see the strawberries through the window. I liked your cleaning solution tip, too - I am getting more into all this lately, and am glad you are, too! :) Thank you again and take care.
Response: I am so glad you liked the card and tip. It was a fun swap and I think I will be making more cards like that. Thank you for your kind comments and the heart! :)
Comment: Wow, you even found a butterfly stamp! lol May your wings grow strong and beautiful, just like you, dear friend. Thx for the butterfly stamps and stickers too. Lots of hugs, T (";)
Response: I love those butterfly stamps. That was my last one. :) I will have to get more. Thank you for your kind words in your rating comment, dear friend. Thank you for the heart, but most importantly, thank you for your friendship. Lots of hugs to you, too. :)
Comment: Thank you for such a wonderful swap package! Your note was delightful. I used to live in Florida and miss those mockingbirds (and azaleas!). Thanks for the wonderful ATC, the hilarious cat pic, all the gorgeous vintage postage stamps, and for using those butterfly stamps on the envelope! It was a pleasure to swap with you! <3<3<3
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. That was a fun swap to put together. :) Thank you for the lovely comment here and the heart. Here's to more swaps! If you ever want to do a private one, just let me know. :)
Comment: I loved your mini envelopes and the fun goodies you included inside ALL the envies! The tiny envies are just darlin' (I'm going to use one as a template). The card does look like the feminine version of the Pony Express - LOL! What a special swap you put together for me!!
Response: I enjoyed that swap. Thank you for the kind words and heart! :)
Comment: What a beautiful town you live in, and your love for it shines through in your photos and text. I like the monument to Rbt. E. Lee, the bridges, and the marsh. Your walk inspired me; if we do this swap again, I think I'll walk around my little town.
Response: Yes, I do love my town. :) I'm so glad you enjoyed the walk. Thank you for the heart...and I'd love to see pictures of your town, too. :)
Comment: thank you SO much for a fascinating walk, I have looked at it over and over, I hope you have enjoyed the swap and thank you for joining the group i hope you continue to join us on our walks :) x
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I did enjoy this swap and am looking to being a part of this group. :) Thank you for the heart, too.
Comment: Thanks for the fun cat postcard; what do you think the cat is thinking - feed me? pet me? I would love a lap cat; ours prefers my husband's lap to mine and I think it's because he's home during the day, I'm not. But she likes to sleep on me once the light is out...strange.
Response: I don't know what that cat was thinking...maybe it was in the middle of a yawn, hee hee. I just loved the eyes, too. :) Glad you enjoyed it and thank you for the heart. :) This was a fun swap.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Easter card. I always associate Easter with Spring. Since I moved to FL though, there really is no 'Spring' season...I miss it (I'm originally from western NY State). Also thank you for the newsy letter sharing the beginning of your Spring with me. HUGS
Response: I wish I could send you some Springtime from here today...it's lovely. Hopefully you will find something special, even in almost-always temperate Florida. Thank you for the prompt rating and the heart. I'm so glad you enjoyed the letter, too. :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your day with me. I too was an abused wife. He left me stranded in Illinois with 3 children. Went back to MA and bought a home for them. I was a single mom for 26 years until the man I love walked into my life. We are sharing the good and the bad. I have severe spinal stenosis and he has cancer, but we have one another. Thank you for the goodies you sent me. I will be able to make some American Girl's clothes with them. Shirley
Response: You're welcome. (Just so anyone who reads this knows, what I wrote about happened many years ago. I'm safe, now.) I'm sorry for your own struggles, but I'm so glad you have found a wonderful man to love you, especially in the hard times. Enjoy the goodies and take care. Thank you for the rating and heart, as well. :)
Comment: Your note was so very sweet - thank you! And I can definitely use the envelopes when I send out sticker flakes and little bits. ^_^ The Richmond Hill cancellation is beautiful, but some fool in Savannah send it through the machine to get spray cancelled, LOL! Oh well. ;D That's the postal service for ya! Love them so. xxx
Comment: Thankyou so much for your glittery card and thoughtful letter, which did much to brighten a rather difficult day. The extras were much appreciated to and I loved the cow on the back of the envelope and the stamps on the front.
Comment: Thank you very very much for the awesome journal and extras! You didn't have to... Your entries and decoration are beautiful! I'd so love to have a cat atmy feet while sleeping!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad it arrived safe and sound. So glad you liked it. Yes, kitties are great little napping partners. I hope you can have a cat sleeping at the foot of your bed someday, too. Thank you for the rating and heart and for being a wonderful swap partner. â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the journal and the prizes included in the envies. I will make sure to use the special buttons in a special way. Love the tape you bound the journal with.
Response: That was fast delivery! I'm so glad it reached you safe and sound. I do hope you liked my very first art journal and the little gifties. I know you'll do something special with the buttons. :) Thank you for your kind patience and being a wonderful swap partner. â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for your touching letter! I had tears in my eyes while reading it, and I'm so, so thankful for your support and friendship. Thank you also for the little gifts, I promise I will find something special to use the card for. Thank you again, Elizabeth for your unwavering faith in me.
Response: Oh, sweet Ashe, thank you for your lovely rating here. Yes, I have faith in you and I know you will do right by everyone. I am glad we are friends. Enjoy your gifties and thank you for the lovely rating, comment and heart. â™¥
Comment: Guess what day Dolly arrived at the post office? 11/11/11, she wanted to make a grand arrival. I only got the slip today and fetched her from the P.O. She is amazing and everyone at work was in awe of her. She will be treasured forever, thank you soooo much.
Response: Ahaha! I guess she *did* want to make a dramatic entrance! *whew!* I'm very happy she made it to you. I'm very happy you like her and I know she will have a good home. Thank you for the heart and rating so quickly. :)
Comment: First of all, your hand drawn and coloured ATC with "doors" is absolutely wonderful! And I don't understand why you didn't like the foil wrap mini book you sent with it - it's perfect. (";) The little acrylic Xmas stamps and Santa decoration are adorable, and the bitsy envelopes will be perfect for adding to the front of some handmade cards. I love the gemstone buttons and will make sure to use them on something special. Finally, the old stamps are such fun! Thank you for all of the thought and effort and heart that obviously went into this swap, and for the delightful stories behind many of the items. Merry, Merry Christmas dear friend! Hugs, Terry (";)
Response: Thank you so much for all your kindess and support through this swap, dear Terry. It was a challenge, but I'm afraid I made it moreso with staying a bit stuck. I am glad you liked everything and thank you for the rating and the heart. â™¥
Comment: How lovely!! That is a great quote... thank you so much. You found better looking letters than I did for mine! And you know I smiled when I saw the stamps. I'm off to post it on my 'inspiration board' now!! Thank you!!!
Response: I had so much fun making this swap! Thank you for setting it up! Yes, I thought you would like the stamps, too. :) Thank you for the heart and the rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you!! I'm sorry for rating you so late. Thank you for messaging me. This is the first time this has happened and I really don't want to do this to anyone else so I will try to be less chaotic. I hope you will forgive me.
Response: Glad they found you! I was afraid the alligator might have eaten the dog, hee hee. Thank you for the heart and for rating me.
Thank you for such a wonderful email swap. Your friends site was refreshing. You are right it is different, but fun! I also enjoy Suzi Blu vidoes. I did not know any of the background story,but I have watch a bunch of the videos for inspiration. You make the most wonderful art. I really enjoy everything that you make! I don't shop in store much because I have problems with crowds so most of the time I buy nothing because they don't have very many dollar bin on the internet. I have been checking out your blog for some time now but I missed the journal video so I am watching it now! Big hugs! and 1,000,000,000hearts for you!
Response: Oh, thank you!!! I really enjoyed that and hope we do another one sometime. Thank you for setting it up and hopefully next time, more people will join. If not, then I don't mind one bit being the only other one. haha! Thank you for ALL the hearts! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the great ATC and wonderful 1st inchie ever :) I also love the Halloween card! and itty bitty punchies! Happy Halloween!!!
Response: Oh, yay! I'm so glad you liked them! I didn't really intend for them to be basically only two colors (with a tiny bit of silver thrown in) but I really liked the way they turned out and I'm glad you did, too. I love that Hallowe'en card and thought you would like it. :) Oh, and the itty bitty kitties! hee hee! So glad you like them, too. Thank you for the rating and heart! Happy Hallowe'en! :)
Comment: OMG! One heart is not enough. She is awesome!!! Thank you!!!
Response: Yay!!! She made it! Oh, wow, what a relief...even though it was only a day off from what the post office said, I was getting worried. I'm so glad you like her and I know she will love her new home, hee hee. Thank you so much for the heart and your kind comments. :) â™¥
Comment: Gooseberry, thanks for the ATC (Pink and Purple butterflies). It is beautiful. Also, thanks for the clear and mailing 1971 stamps. These stamps are a keep sake.Again, thanks.
Response: I'm glad you liked the ATC. It didn't turn out the way I had meant for it to, but things like that usually make the art better than it might have been. I think that is the situation in this case. I'm glad you liked the stamp and the postage stamps. You were a very good host for this swap, too, by the way! Thank you for the rating and heart and I look forward to our next swap. :)
Comment: thank you for the great potholder!! And yes, I will put the wrapping to good use!!
Response: I'm glad you like it! It was easy to sew once I got the folding down right. May have been a bit thick for my machine, though...but I liked the way it turned out. I'm glad the wrappings will be useful, too. The little witch charm was for you, though. :) Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Gorgeous, thank you. Sorry for delay in rating
Response: I'm so glad it made it's way to you. It was a lot of fun to make (wish I had about a dozen of those tags! But feel lucky for that one.) I'm very pleased you like it! Thank you for the heart, and that's ok about it being a little bit later. I'm just glad it made it.
Comment: Thank you for the sweet envie and ATC! The tiny envie with the mini buttons is precious. I'd like to know where you got an Edgar Allan Poe tote bag...sounds right up my alley! :D
Response: Oh, I'm so glad it made it safe and sound. :) Glad you liked the little buttons and envie, too. @hoppyloo sent me some tiny envies as an extra in a swap (she has a punchie for it!) and they have been extremely useful.) The Edgar Allan Poe tote (is red and has a similar graphic as the tag I used for the ATC) was from Barnes & Noble booksellers. It was part of a big Poe/Hallowe'en display. :) Thank you for the kind comments and help regarding collage! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the lovely marbled ATC. I appreciate pink and green together and they perfectly matched the theme of the card (which I love since I treasure my gardens). Thanks also for the metallic bug confetti -- the bees are esp. cute. And I think the "mess" on the back of the card is beautiful LOL. Thanks for such a wonderful swap! <3<3<3
Response: I am so glad it arrived and that you like it! Thank you for your kind comments. I'm just so happy you like this ATC, even the mess! hee hee. Thank you for your words and the rating and heart. Hope we are partners again some swap!
Comment: thanks for all the kind words I would love a pc from Georgia --- would you like one from Va pm your addy if you would and what kind you would like we were lucky we did have a tornado in our town recently but no damage in our side of town but alot of people on the other side of town lost homes most have rebuilt now --we got wind and rain from Irene thanks for asking
Response: I will send along that pc this week. I don't collect postcards, but if you'd like to send one, just for fun, then I would love that. So glad you and your family were safe from all the wild weather! Thank you for the rating and heart.
Comment: Hello Elizabeth - I received your lovely letter today. You write beautifully - I felt so calm and gentle after reading it. I hope your interview went well. :) I will write a proper letter back to you soon. -Kim
Response: I'm so glad my writing had that effect on you. :) I would love to receive a letter back, whenever you have the time. Thank you so much for the rating and heart. As for the interview...I thought it went well, but haven't heard back yet.
Comment: This is one of the cutest ATCs I've ever received! I love the little bunny admiring the carrot garden, and his cotton tail is too adorable! The real Georgia cotton was a lovely touch, and it's special to me because most of my family lives in south west Georgia and several family members work in a cotton gin. Thanks so much!
Response: Oh, I'm so glad this bunny had a special connection to you and your family. I love cotton fields and recently drove by many of them in full bloom. Big yellow flowers, very pretty. Thank you so much fo your kind words and lovely rating and heart. Hopefully we get to be partners again sometime.
Comment: I loved your tiny doodles, especially that you added some arrows! Also, one of my dearest friends just moved to Savannah, so it gave me warm feelings to get a postcard from there. Thank you!
Response: You're welcome! Yes, I took by your name (and read your profile) that you like arrows, so I'm glad you noticed them there. I'm happy I chose the card I did and glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for your kind comments and rating and heart. :)
Comment: Hearts, hearts and more hearts! The package was great. The wrapping and bow on everything were just so sweet and it was just so nice of you to include a note saying where everything was from and the story behind it. There was just so much stuff in the package, I'm am still smiling after opening it. Thankyou.
Response: Oh, thank you for your kind comments! I'm so glad you enjoyed everything. It was a fun package to put together for you. Enjoy! Thank you for the rating and heart. I'm really glad receiving this swap made you so happy. That's made *me* so happy!
Comment: Fun! Everything is great... I love plantable paper! And of *course* Pooh rocks. The erasers... I ALWAYS want them!!!
Response: So glad you liked everything! Yes, Pooh is wonderful, I just love him. You'll have to give me a tutorial on carving the erasers someday. ;) I've tried, but guess I'll have to try, try again. Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful comment! Mmmmm local chocolates, that just sounds so, so, so good. I am salivating just thinking about it! I have done the same thing, and sometimes not even small boxes! *blush*
Thank you, my husband and I joked from the time we found out I was pregnant that it would be cool if he was born on St Patty's Day (my husband is Irish). Well, we couldn't help but laugh when he waited. He was born at 1am St Patrick's Day morning! We now joke that we will never have to come up with a theme for his birthday! teehee! I think it is really cool when people have holiday birthdays. :)
Thank you and nice to meet you too!
Response: I loved reading about your baby being born on St. Patrick's day! You'll need to celebrate his birthday in Savannah someday. ;) Thank you for your kind comments and the lovely rating and heart.

Response: So glad you liked this and sorry for not responding here sooner! The paper is from a gift bag that I cut up. I'm really so glad you liked these ATCs. They were fun to make. Thank you for setting up the swap, sweet friend. :) and thank you for the rating and heart! â™¥

Comment: Dearest glitter sprinkler, I adore my little quote book! I really do. It is so beautifully made and illustrated and I love all the quotes. Every page makes me smile and it is a joy to read. Am I gushing? Oh well. I loved this swap too and will definitely do it again. I love all the extras you sent for me too, from the stickers and the cards to the fab postage stamps, so a huuuuuge thankyou from me =D

Comment: I LOVE my atc, thank you so much. I love the kitty and he looks very smart in his fab pink tuxedo. Thank you for the extra's which I appreciate too and the lovely letter. You deserve so much more than one heart.
Response: Thank you so much for the kind comments. I really had fun making this ATC and it gave me the idea to make a similar greeting card for my brother, except it was a dog in a gold tuxedo (50th birthday.) I'm glad you enjoyed what I sent and hope it's the first of many swaps with each other. Thank you for the rating and heart. You're a lovely swapper and good friend. :)
Comment: Hello Elizabeth,
Thank you very much for the wonderful earth day card I received from you. I loved how you incorporated the theme by finding stickers,paper,anything related to it.Also loved how everything was made with 100% recycled paper & stamping of the leafs on the front looks so amazing. :D The festival in Savannah sure does sound like fun to go and see. Thank you for the delightful read Elizabeth & reminders as well. :D

Comment: Elizabeth, thank you for the lovely note and yummy recipe. I hope you had a chance to visit Anne's of Green Gables place while you were in PEI. That trip is still on my "must do before die" list. Anne of Green Gables is my heroine since I can remember!
Response: Yes, we did visit Green Gables twice when we were there and saw all of the museums and houses associated with L. M. Montgomery (even met Mr. Robert Montgomery, her 3rd cousin!) We had the most wonderful time imaginable. You're welcome for the swap and I hope you enjoy the recipe. Thank you for the rating and heart. :)

Comment: I assume that you put down a deposit on the rowhouse that's for rent for me? I think it would make a *lovely* vacation home! Thanks so much for all the wonderful photos--it feels like I got to go on a little stroll with you and your husband through your town! I loved seeing all the beautiful spring flowers, and I especially like the little bit of pink peeking out from the sea of white. Thanks again! :)
Response: If you move into that house, can we come along, too? ;)
I'm so glad you enjoyed coming along for the walk with us. the azleas are amazing and if you ever are in Savannah for a visit, try to go in early April. :) Thank you for the lovely rating and heart and your kind comments.
Comment: Love it, love it. Such beautfiful handmade and personalized too. Thank you;.

Looking forward to swapping with you again.

Comment: Thank you for such a wonderfully thoughtful package of dandelionosity! I love the actual dandelion leaf print on the envelope, and your wonderful dandelion artistamps (hee hee - glad you found a use for the scissors!) and ATC (I love the embossing technique!). The extra postage stamps were quite unnecessary, but much appreciated, all the same. :) And you're right, we don't get hummingbirds over here - I can't imagine seeing one in my back garden! - so thank you for the cute envelopes, also. :)
Response: Yay! It made it!!! I'm so glad you liked everything. It was fun putting together, but a little nervous-making as the new ATC technique and the artistamps were a first for me. I'm glad you enjoyed it all. Thank you for the lovely rating and heart and I look forward to more swaps with you. :)
Comment: Got your letter today. Loved the lace punch at the bottom of the stationery. Can't wait to try the tea! So neat that you know the people who made the tea! Will see a reply from me very shortly! Thanks!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. Thank you for the rating and heart. :)

Comment: Oh my gosh, my husband told me when I got home that 'THE coolest envelope ever' was waiting for me from America. I got in and opened it and it's from you :D Thanks so much for the beautiful card and especially the dragonfly and ladybird sprinkles - I'm all inspired to use them on some ATC's! Thank you for brightening my day! x
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed my sending! :) I read your profile and saw the bugs you enjoy (here, we call them ladybugs, but they were also called ladybirds long ago, so I knew what you were talking about.) :) I really enjoyed this swap and saw we have quite a few things in common. :) Thank you so much for the rating and the heart. :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your list of things you love about Joshua. So often, it is easy to focus on the negative things, I think this swap was a wonderful way to remind us all of how lucky we are. :) Your list was wonderful, it is great that you were able to come up with a complete different list for your other partner! That says a lot about your husband! :D
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and heart. :) I am happy for all of us who participated. :)
Comment: Wow, amazing, I was planning to give you a heart just for all the effort you made in getting the map postcard but the additional postcards and lovely card and info makes it even better. Too bad I can't give you more than 1 heart! You're a wonderful swapper and could teach others how to be a proper swapper! Thank you! :-)
Response: Oh! My heart is just all glowy. :) Thank you so much for your kind words, especially, and for the lovely rating and heart. I'm so glad you liked everything and it made its way to you. Thank you again for your kind patience. :)

Comment: The "tree" arrived today!! I love how you made it with recycled items. The envelope it came in was awesome too. (we are big into recycling) AND that you told me what your process was you used in making it. I only use fabric so I'm interested in what goes into other techniques. Wishing you the best, Denise
