Comment: I love your Learning Curve project. It's so cute! It's interesting how things can turn out better than you pictured even though they take so much longer than you thought they would. And that prep can be a lot of work and cost so much. Thank you so much for an awesome swap that was a surprise for both of us.
Response: I enjoyed making this for you and am relieved and excited that it was finally delivered :-) I love swapping with you. It's always a good experience! ♥

Comment: Thank you for another delightful swap. I think my favorites are those with the tiny flowers / flowers & hearts and the adorable Holly Hobby fabric--I know a couple of swap-bot friends who love her and I have ideas of what to make already! ♥ I really enjoyed this swap and hope you'll host more of these charm swaps in the future. Thank you!
Response: I do plan to host more . . . after I can get back into shopping at actual stores. My stash is a bit pathetic right now. I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. I had fun putting it together for you (after coming out of my brain fog) and look forward to the next round. Thanks for the nice rating!

Comment: I love your psycho-neuro yellowness! Both the envie and the card are very cool. And Hamlet was very pleased to get mail from Coco. (He gave it a good sniff.) Thanks for hosting this one. It's nice once in a while to work on whatever you feel like at the moment.
Response: I loved doing this swap. I think I'm over the psycho babble now, but it was a fun experiment and a great little rabbit hole for my watercolors to travel down. Thanks for doing this with me! P.S. Coco is super happy to hear that Hamlet was pleased with his mail. :-)

Comment: I am really quite blown away by your sampler! It does not say beginner at all. You need to see mine for that! It's so intricately detailed with so much in the small squares. I will find a special place to display this treasure. This sampler swap was quite an adventure!
Response: I agree! This swap was an adventure! I definitely learned a lot. Thanks for putting up with my nervousness about the whole thing. It helped knowing I would be sending it to a kind person. Thank you for the nice rating and for the heart.

Comment: Thank you for the pretty "Sparkling Conversation!" I was going to remark on the embossing but it is the glass bead gel that gives that sparkle. It's really lovely.
Response: Glass bead gel is my latest favorite craft product. I'd smear it on the walls if it wasn't so expensive. LOL! Thanks so much for the rating :-)
LizzyJo rated for N&T~ Stab a Leaf on Oct 17, 2020

Comment: I love my leaf! It's beautiful. The beaded edging is awesome. (How did you do that?) The background felt does look familiar. I hung the leaf on my fake ficus tree so I can admire it. I like your calendar page envie, too. I want to do something with the Halloween barn. Thanks for providing me with an exceptional Happy Mail day! I love getting swaps from you.
Response: You got your ornament quickly! Yay! That felt looks like suede, doesn't it? If I remember right, the beaded edge is a blanket stitch with a bead dropped on at the beginning of each stitch series. I'm really glad you like it! Thanks for another fun swap 💚

Comment: Your Answers are much better articulated than I ever could. The fact that you said the museum is like a corn maze is spot on. I had a heck of a time navigating it, but what a great museum! I really enjoyed looking into Dali's surreal world. Thank you for coming up with such a fun and unique swap, this is exactly what we need more of here on the bot!

Comment: OH I LOVE IT! Thank you for the beautiful patch. We actually just returned from a trip to DC although the cherry blossoms are not in bloom. On a drive through the Tidal Basin we reminisced about the past festivals we've attended there. So your patch is really just perfect - lovely, lovely job!
Response: My brother used to live in the DC area but I was never able to visit during peak cherry blossom season. I would love to see that! I'm glad you liked the patch. Thanks so much for swapping with me :-)

On the tree already! Also the Christmas card I will be making that cookie recipe! You have blessed me! God bless you ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for also sending along the extra fabric to add details, its like a collaborative project! ;) Thank you so much for this wonderful little piece of art, I can't wait to put it to good use and show it off! I would give this swap a million hearts if I could!
Response: Welcome home! I'm glad you're happy with your needlebook and hope you can customize it to match your needs. Sorry I wasn't as smart as I thought I was in doing that for you. :-) Thanks for the nice rating. Happy swapping!

Your attention to detail is impressive, and I loved hearing about your inspiration for the piece. Thank you for a beautiful little treasure. ♥

Comment: This was amazing to read, it made me laugh so much! Each new thing was like, "Yeah, I can handle that!" Honestly operatic Metallica would make that drive so much better, I've done it when my husband had an account in Stockton. I get carsick too, the bags are already under the seat! Separate vacations from my family? I don't have to get up and feed all the animals?! WHERE.DO.I.SIGN.UP. Oh, and I'll totally sleep in my son's bed, it's the newest and most comfortable in the house! My husband is the GM of the casino bank, he'll school you all day long to get you in there so he can win your money. It's open 24 hours, I'll get that train ticket money back from you on a roundabout way in no time!!! I'm gonna need a lot of beer for The Shining... I'm familiar with Rancho Bernardo, I got you for sushi and Ben & Jerry's; I've learned edamame is really filling. The Lookout is a fabulous place to see the sunrise over the lake, oh and as for your fresh cream... Well, we have to drive right by the dairy on Corydon to get to and from the casino so consider it done (I'll even get you some of the world's best chocolate milk, 6% fat and worth every calorie). Paddleboats haven't been made available at Launch Pointe yet, but I'd be happy to paddle you around the wetlands in our kayak - the wildlife is beautiful. I have done more Vegas turn arounds than I can think of to go to the airport to pick someone up and send them home - back and forth and back forth. Maybe you can burn a Metallica cd for me for the ride home! Super fun swap, I loved it!!
Response: Oh, man! I made that way too easy on you! Your husband might actually be the only one suffering here! LOL! I do think we would have a lot of fun together. :-) Thanks for doing this with me! I'll be sending your hostess gift next week. Fade to Black . . .

Comment: I like it! And its title cracked me up! (I do have to admit that I had always pictured Coco as a blonde, so the color of her contribution was a surprise.) Give Coco the Wonder Dog a hug and kiss (minus the vaseline) for me. Thanks for joining me in this fun (though immensely weird) swap!
Response: Nope! Coco is dark and mysterious. :-) Now that you've seen it, you have to admit that my twinchie is kind of disgusting, right? It's ALWAYS a pleasure swapping with you...even when our projects get weird. Thanks!

Honestly, you should have way more confidence in your abilities, the earrings are absolutely beautiful. They are exactly my style, and if I were choosing earrings in a store, I would pick these. I know I am going to be wearing them so often. Thank you does not cover my gratitude xxxxx

Comment: Oh happy mail day! (You even included stickers that back that up.) I love how your Pocket Letter turned out. It's awesome. I love the tangles, the quote, the floating snowflakes, and the very generous assortment of goodies. It amazed me that even with a very open swap description, both our interpretations were pretty similar. I would give you basket full of hearts if I could. ♥♥♥
Response: We did something similar??? I'm very curious to see what you made now! Maybe tomorrow. (Mail always seems to be slower traveling in this direction.) I'm glad you like what I sent. Thanks a bunch for the basket of hearts. :-)

Response: Wow. That was speedy delivery! I'm so glad he likes his book. That last picture is supposed to be a front-end loader moving the first row of snow, but the printing company cut most of it off. Those little devils. I'm looking forward to seeing what the two of you made! :-)

Comment: There really are no words to express my gratitude for this swap. Your generosity and kindness are truly without measure. The care, time, money and love that went into that box shone out the moment I opened it. I still cannot believe how many wonderful things you sent. The sweets!!!! I cannot wait to try them all! The wonderful pieces of amethyst are going on my shelf of awesomeness! and truly, there is simply too much to list here, but please know that you have made me feel so special. I actually sat and cried while I was opening everything because I could not believe that someone had gone to so much trouble for me. As you know I have been feeling very down and disheartened about swap-bot just lately, but you have restored my faith in humanity. The words are not enough, but they are all I have right now, so Thank You.
Response: I had so much fun shopping for you, Zoe! The merchants in the little stores on Main Street got an especially huge kick out of helping me find things to fit the "Flora and Fauna" bill. They all know each other, so they were giving me ideas about where to find what. Now I need to host a scavenger hunt swap of some kind so I'll have an excuse to get back down there and do that again! Thanks for swapping with me. ♥ It was a blast!

I love seeing how differently we each interpret the same swap guidelines. 2-12-16---Another atc arrived today and it is gorgeous! What a lovely surprise. I wish I could give you lots of ♥s.
Response: That really WAS fast!!! The ATC is bright and sparkly and my heart was in the right place when I got the Diamond Glaze out to make "Breathe" look like it was underwater. What happened next is anyone's guess. (Sorry that it ended up being so bulbous.) I agree: it is fun to see how each person interprets a swap! Thank you for swapping with me, Jo. It's always a pleasure. ♥

I'll be happy to drive to Paris and meet you at 6 in the moring, it's only a seven hour drive, so I'm good for that. I have asked my brother to come along, he's an experienced photographer. So that will work out fine :-) My son is just learning the alphabet so he's now re-arranging your fridgemagnets to alphabetical order, I am sure you support his creative outbursts. You were slightly off key with the Bohemian Rapsodey, but so am I.... We're all ready to have you here, cannot wait xx
Response: Seven hours??? In that case, I hope you're a very good driver since we'll need to burn rubber to get back to your place in time to do everything I have planned! Please get one of your responsible neighbors to watch your son while he has my magnets. I would hate for you to have to replace any of those due to breakage! I'm glad you joined this swap. :-) I read the letter to one of my friends and she couldn't believe I would have the nerve to send something like that. LOL Thanks for rating, MAMAAAA!!!

Comment: Oh my. I really did interpret this swap like someone who can't read! Your bird is SPECTACULAR!! I love the red and especially his feathers. :-) Your drawing of Benecio is fantastic, my BF was super impressed with your pen and ink skills. Me, too! Thank you for such a wonderful swap!
Response: Hey, you can't really misinterpret this swap. It was so mutated, who knows what you were supposed to make! I'm so glad you like the bird. I did the drawing before I assigned partners for the pen and ink swap. I figured if I didn't send to you I could still use it as a surprise in something else. In this case, if you had hated the bird, maybe you would have had mercy on me. lol Thanks for the comments and rating. Swapping with you is always fun. :-)

I love the way you wrapped it all up; didn't want to open the inside wrapping at all but that would have made the swap very difficult to complete, LOL. Thanks too for the extra envies and the lovely bling! Now to determine which envie will be going back to you... decisions, decisions.. Thanks again, anni :o)

Comment: Thank you for the awesome Butterfly on flower ATC. I think the details are amazing. Did you use different thickness of pens? Love what you did with the envelope as well
Response: Wow! They both arrived on the same day? That completely ruins my theory that postcards get the shaft! I'm glad you liked everything. I think I used the same fine line pen to make the entire ATC but ended with a wide calligraphy marker to add the shadows under the flower petals. Thank you for the ratings!

Comment: OHHH! What a lovely writing on the envelope :) Did you used stencils? I can not believe you are a beginner. These Inchies are fabulous! I hesitate a little bit to touch the spider :) How did you make the net? The alien is great too, I cant believe the yellow net stayed in the place. Very cool! You could if you like add a frame, like you take the Inchies and put the sides on an Inkpad. Thanks too for the lovely card and note.
Response: LOL! I'm glad you like my writing. I don't use stencils but I do usually use calligraphy pens to address envelopes. That spider is horrible, isn't it? I was happy to get him out of the house. :-) I sewed the net with a needle and thread, then I put Diamond Glaze on it to give it dimension and added a thin line of glitter glue so that it would look like rays from the star. I'm very happy to hear that you liked it! Thanks for the tip on adding a frame! I received one today with that added touch and thought it looked great. I appreciate the rating and comments. Thanks!

Comment: L O L !.......Girl i am still giggling from unwrapping and rewrapping that yarn.. My sides are aching from laughing at my DH......... When i got the box I was on my way out the door... So I only had time to open the box and left the ball on the coffee table.. Later when I got home my DH says, "What kind of decoration is that? Is it patriotic?...I think it needs some stars." I just broke out in laughter.. and said, "It's a Surprise Ball."... "Oh"... was all he said.. then sat down to watch me unwind... As things dropped out he would go chasing after beads, and buttons.. and soon it was a game and the dog just keep staring at him.. and by the time we reached the candy he was wanting to take over and hurry it up and I wouldn't let him.. Very interesting Halloween goodies and tags... so cool!.. love the keys/brads. and already drank the tea.. YUMMM!!... That was S O O O much fun.. I sure hope your sis enjoys hers.. HUGS A Bunch ... cj
Response: That's great! If I had known they would enjoy it, I would have sent one for your DH and the dog, too. LOL Hope you don't step on any stray beads with your bare feet in the morning! I'm glad you guys had fun with it. I'm looking forward to seeing my SIL's reaction. :-) Thanks for the heart.

Comment: Woooow! The ATCs are absolutely amazing. The collage is is awesome and so moving in itself and then your drawing skills are making me really envious ^.^ I loved your note, the note card and the envelope too. For swappers like you there should be a million hearts option ^.^ I'm also happy that you liked the poems by Rosenstock, he's definitely special ^0^
Response: I'm very happy you like your ATCs. I think they went to a good home. :-) That was one of my all-time favorite challenges. What an ingenious way to plan hand-drawn ATCs! Thank you so much for the kind comments and rating.

Comment: Thank you so much for the Snow White matchbox! It is so elegant and beautiful. I love the color scheme you chose (consequently red and black are 2 of my favs.). I thought all the little trinkets inside were so smart - esp. the coal/gold and sewing needle! I wasn't quite sure about the sticker bling at the bottom though (a music note?). Thank you again, this was def. a fun swap! Yeah, I did see the red sparkles and thought they were blood :-p Ok, now I know it's a 7!
Response: I forgot to tell you to ask if there was anything that didn't make sense in the box, so I'm glad you mentioned the bling! That's a number seven. I used the 1857 version of the story. Black, white and red are strongly symbolic in that version, as are the numbers three and seven. The red jewels on top are supposed to represent the three drops of blood in the snow. I'm not sure if that was apparent. Thanks again for doing this with me. It was a great experience! And, thank you for the rating. :-)

Comment: This is one of those "extra special" swaps that puts other swaps to shame. *This* is how it's done! From the beautifully made mail art envie, to the extras (4 teabags! And address labels in the swap theme! And a great, chatty, picture laden intro letter!) But most of all, I'm blown away by your artistic ability as shown in the ATC. Abstract, yet immediately recognizable. Evocative. Stunning. One of the best swaps ever.
Response: You made me feel like a homecoming queen with this comment! I'll be doing the "parade wave" for strangers all day! Thanks so much, Pam!
