Comment: WOW Cindy! Your ornament is absolutely GORGEOUS! Makes mine look like a child did them...lol. Thank you so much, it will be up year round. :) Thank you also for the cute embellishments, I can totally use them. Have a Merry Christmas! :D
Response: Well aren't you sweet?! I love this swap (I think I've done it every year), and always love to see all the variations people come up with. I'm so happy you like what I sent you!
Comment: Thanks for sending me such a wonderful swap package Cindy. The steampunk necklace you created for me is absolutely stunning. I really love it and will wear it often. Beautifully made as always : ) Thanks also for the ''Snow Queen'' atc and ''Halloween Opera'' chunky page. You know how much I enjoy collecting your artwork : ) So much cool stuff. I will put all the sparkly embellishments to good use sometime soon. ''Happy Halloween'' to you too Cindy. You are both a valued friend and creative inspiration.
Response: I'm so glad you like the necklace. I had fun making it, especially when I knew you were my partner!
Comment: the doll is wonderful.. thankyou so much for resending. i love the detailing that you used and all of the great goodies. thank you again. the machine is not letting me give you a heart. I will try again in a few days.
Response: Loved making her for you, and so glad you can use the goodies!
Comment: Recieved two lovely flying monkey cards today. Thank you Coffee for a resend, this is the second time some of my post has gone missing and it has made me check with the post office as to why swaps are disapearing. Appologies for the initial rating, I hope we do swap again in future. I like your cards alot.
Response: I am so glad that you like them! I know I have problems with my postal service, too! I'd be so eager to have some of your hand drawn work, Trinket! Let's talk!
Comment: Hi Cindy -- sorry it has taken so long to do this rating. Hectic time with work right now. The background cards were GREAT! Very original and I can't wait to put them to use. Also can't wait to hear how your Art & Soul workshops went and see what you made there!
Response: No worries, dear friend. I can't wait to get together and see you sometime soon!
Comment: YEAH!! I LOVE your last name :P These are such GORGEOUS ATCs!!! You designed both of these SO well! What an artist you are! I love the quilt-ish one the best! Thank you so much for your effort on these and the fabulous extras too!!! ♥
Response: So glad you like them...and the last name is REAL, too!
Comment: Cindy, I LOVE your cards (Katherine Hepburn - I adore her!!!). And a big, big heart for the gorgeous, beautiful extras AND the stamps of authors on the envelope (what a well thought out detail ...!)
A big hug!
Response: Glad you like them, Susanne! I try to use real stamps when I send out, and those are new here in the US. So fun to swap with you and see what everyone did in that group!
Comment: Cindy thanks so much for the lovely ATC and all the goodies. So many unique things you sent. I look forward to using them. My fav is the rubbery trim! That will be fun to use.
Sorry it has taken me a bit to get this thank you to you but kids are out of school and life is busy. Take care.
Response: Glad it reached you! I've been busy with my mom and was just worried because things have been so hectic. Art on, and enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for resending after the PO ate the first! It was very cool to get a glimpse of your life. I'll work on an ATC to send you..:)
Response: I am excited about getting an ATC from you! And I thank you for your rating with the smile...it's been a horrid day -- relating to my friend who I write about in the perzine...her health is OK, but she is moving back home to Detroit, MI...I'm so sad!
Comment: Another amazing creation, Cindy. Beautifully crafted, using gorgeous buttons and a wonderful colour scheme. I really do love it. An abundance of stunning extras too. As usual, I have been spoilt by such a great swap partner who I am also lucky enough to call a friend. Thank-you : )
Comment: Amazing package...those bandannas are the greatest! I really LOVE that crazy, witchy, punch-out piece. I must know, where did you ever find it????? I wish I could give you more hearts b/c this package was spot on. Your riddance has been eradicated. Thanks so much for your effort in making this a memorable package!
Comment: I just love my doll, especially as you had to go to the trouble of making a second one when the original got lost in the mail! Thanks for the extra goodies as well. I'm excited to use them all.
Response: I am now officially giving up on sending anything from that particular post office branch -- too many mysteries. Turns out I had some ATCs go missing in that same mailing. The flip side for me is that I got a chance to meet a partner in person, which is rare! Hope we can swap again!
Comment: I'm adding a heart to this rating because I think the craftmanship was absolutely superb. (in fact, it gives me a bit of a complex...!) The wings are finished with so much care, the back is as pretty as the front, and the buttons are just gorgeous. Thank you so much!
Comment: This was FABULOUS! Where do I start? The great rocket/robot stickers? The excellent transparent papers? The wonderful movie stills? The palm wallpaper? All the doodads? The embossed black lizard paper (even my husband loved that)? The western embossed fabric? I loved EVERYTHING. Thank you so much!!!! I want to do this again.
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the coffee goodies!! WOW!! I feel so lucky to receive one of your swaps ... think this is the first time. :D I love everything ... the matchbox, stickers, little charms, etc .... definitely made my day!
Comment: So lovely!!! thanks for the extra's.
ps: the SPP (stupid post people) put a realy BIG barcode sticker over 8 of your wonderful stamps!!!! So sorry!
but I can luckily use the other ones.
Comment: Good Gawd mujer, you took this to a whole new level. I am simply awed by your Catrina. My son was with me when I recieved it, and he was way impressed. (teens don's impress easily)
Swappers like you make me love Swap-bot.
Salute, I will treasure her always.
Comment: Somehow the envie was sent back to you by the Post Office. You were nice enough to write to me & tell me this & then you resent it. This was very nice of you & then I received the ATC's & I just love them. I am so glad you resent them, I would have missed out! Thank you very much.
Comment: Mahalo for the beautiful doll, matchbox and goodies! I love her "beehive" hairdo and all of the bee-related goodies. This is one of the best swaps I have ever received! I hope we can swap again in the future so I can return the favor!
Comment: Thank-you so very much for such sparkly gorgeousness. The shrine you created really is an amazing piece of art. So very beautiful, and conveys the essence of Neil Gaiman's ''Sandman'' comics perfectly. All the extra goodies you sent were really cool too. I love the hand-crafted necklace and Bettie Page ATC. I wish I could award more than one heart : )

Comment: Thank you Cindy! The fairy is beautiful, and I truly appreciate all of the wonderful little extras that you gave me. You have a very generous soul. Thank you so very much for a truly wonderful package!
Comment: Such a wonderful package. The atc was amazing! It's my all time favourite! Everything in the package was gorgeous, with lots of sparkly stuff. Cindy catered to my dark heart perfectly. I hope we swap again : )
Comment: CoffeLatte did a GREAT job with the Operation Haremail swap! She went over the top with lots of adorable bunny things and adorable packaging with lots of nice little touches. I couldn't have been more pleased. :)
Comment: Wow! What a special paper doll! Thanks Cindy! It was a great pick-me-up and reminder that spring was on the way during our recent March Madness blizzards. I was going to mount it in a hinged-frame but need to find a way to display it so that the front and back are visible.
Comment: Wow, what a creative and fully detailed ornament - thank you so much ! Jo
Response: Thanks, Vidriosa...and I just want to note that you gave me my first heart just after they were introduced to the rating system! The ornament was sent on time, but when you added that heart it updated the date, too! This was a great swap, and I'm so glad you liked the ornament.
