Comment: Thank you very much for the B(.)(.)Bies. I too enjoyed doing this ATC as well. I spent a lot of time on making it perfect. I hope more of these come along in the future. Thanks agin for the eye candy Zach.
Comment: Thank you for the great reading list. I also really liked the mermaid bookmark you sent, that was nice! I liked how you added the "started but didn't finish section" I was thinking about doing that too.
Comment: Thank you so much! I loved EVERYTHING in the package. It was all very much me :) and oddly enough, I had a craving for candy corn today before the mail came lol. This was really a great swap and I look forward to doing more swaps with you in the future! Take Care!
Comment: My dad worked in the mines..let me tell ya...not much has changed. They work 12-14 hours a day, 6 days a week. It upset me so much because yeah, it is good money but if you never have time to spend that money and enjoy it what is the point? And I also love that Mother Jones was this little old lady with a potty mouth!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely poems and art work. Your extra were also thoughtful and seasonal. I am just finishing a mini quilt with a william morris cross-stitch repro in the centre and morris-ish fabric surrounding it. Reading his poetry was a nice connection. Cheers, LPV
Comment: Hi Gloria, I loved your card. So sorry to hear that you are dropping out for the time being. I have my own group running with my daughter in-law. We started last december the 25th. Its starting to go really well. It is International as well. If you would like to know more I will send you an invite. You take care and hope tp see you back to your old self real soon. I really don't believe I could survive without my crafts. Cheers maggie.
Comment: Thank you for the Watermelon ATC! It definitely reminds me of throwing watermelon parties in the summer, and I loved the decorated envelope; it made me smile! =) I also appreciated the map and images; I hope things with your family are better soon!
Comment: Hello Gloria,
Thank you so much for your beautifully bright praying mantis for the "Insect Series #4--Praying Mantis" Swap. I absolutely love the colors you used and will be a great addition to my Insect Series in my ATC Collection. What I love about Swap-bot is the various interpretations swappers have in one swap. I think you have to be willing to accept the variations. With that said, I hope we have many more opportunities to swap with one another. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!!!!
Comment: WOW,, you did a great job on the Praying Mantis the look on his face is great,,I too find them very interesting,,The Native Americans hold them as sacred and would never harm one..For one to sit on your house means that your house has been blessed..I appreciate the extra goodies and I love your art work on the envie too, that is so cool..Thank you
Response: Thank you so much for your compliments! It made me feel good to see that you apperciated all the little things too. It is good to see another person who respects the praying mantis as I do :-) Thank you for sharing with me some Native American traditions.
Comment: Thank you for such a great poem and presentation! From breaking the wax seal to the scented rosemary and petals, I really enjoyed the experience of reading the poem. It's too bad about the feather pen, but I loved how you burnt the edges of the paper; the whole thing was a literary romance!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed everything and it means a lot to know that you apperciated my presentation :) Thank you!
Comment: I love the ATC (I giggled a little. It's a good one. I admit that I've thought about it once or twice ;) or more...) and the goodies were so amazing! I loved all the stickers! Seriously so awesome! <3
Comment: I love Alcott :) What a fun thing! I'm named after Talia Shire, haha. Anyway! I enjoyed reading your survey, you sound supercool! I totally want to see your sculpture garden..
Response: Hey!!! Sorry for waiting so long to respond (my profile was doing something weird where I couldn't see my ratings) anyway thanks for the cool comment. I read your profile and you sound pretty darn cool! See you more on swapbot
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATC's and the goodies that came along with it. We do seem to have quite a bit in common. I understand your attraction to cultural anthropology. It was a cultural anthropology class that made me decide to make it my minor.
I believe it will come in handy with my future line of work. If I want to travel and cover events I feel I should know as much of other cultures as possible, and how I am to approach the subjects that I'm shooting. The last thing I want is for my vision to be biased, as I believe journalism needs to be truthful above all things.
Also, thank you for the comments on my photography :)
Response: I am so glad you liked it all. Its neat to hear about your feelings on journalism I agree with you 100%. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Your poems are so beautiful. They make me see such beautiful images in my head when I read them. What a surprise as well to find such a lovely altered journal and pen, thank you so much, These are so creative and the autumn colors so apropos. I will use this for my special poetry journal now. The mandala is so beautiful I think I am going to hang it by my desk down from the shelf. Thank you so much for the wonderful swap. I look forward to reading more of your poetry in the future.
Comment: Gloria, I don't even know what to say. I don't think I've ever gotten a more thoughtful package. The very idea that you would go and find a book that suited my interest to go along with the not one, but two, bookmarks you made just blows me away. The bookmarks are great and I love that part of it was hand-drawn. The Knights Templar are one of my favorite medieval topics. I started reading it right away. I love it all and thank you so much. If there were a way to give you multiple hearts, I certainly would. <3
Response: I am so happy that you love what you recieved and like the book! Thank you for the kind comment!
Comment: What a wonderful swap but I can always count on you for a wonderful swap. Thank you so much for the Apollo. Now I have to to show how different people see the same God. What a wonderful art tool and spiritual tool. Thank you
Response: I am glad you liked it! And I can always count on you as a delightful person to send to!
Comment: Thank you for the card and teas. I do love tea. Good luck with the rain. We had a very wet Mabon and had to do it inside.
Response: Oh good. I'm glad you liked the tea! Thats lovely that you got rain! I waited until the temprature got bellow 100 degrees at night to do my little ritual I hope it drops the day of the rain dane.
Comment: The ATC I got from you was really late and you didn't tell me that you will be late. The coordinator had to contact you and then you mailed me. And the ATC looks like it was absolutely not made with any effort or love, more like "I have to send anything".
I'm sorry to give you this rating.
Response: I am very sorry that you were disapointed. I did contact you via email. Maybe your email is old and you need to put up a new one. I feel slightly hurt that you think it was not made with any heart. I tried my best as I always do to make something worth recieving. How about I try it again to make it up to you and if you give me your current email I will foreward the original one to you as proof that I did send it (before being contacted by the coordinater). As you can see bellow on my profile Nimue was happy with her atc but I am not asking for a heart. I only feel all this more invigorated to make it up to you. I try my hardest to give good swapping expierences to my partner and feel bad that failed this time around. I know it sucks when you do something you think is really good and get something you don't like. I was flaked on this swap so that was bummer too. I can't gurantee my style is something you would enjoy but like I said I'm going to send you another atc.
Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful swap. I love everything you've sent me - so special! And the parcel smelled wonderfully of the herbs (I absolutely love herbs!). They will definitely add to a feast. :)
Also thank you for the beautiful heart!!!
Response: Awww! I am glad you liked it Naurwen! and that you as well for the heart :-)
Comment: If I could give you five hearts, I would. This is probably the best little surprise I've ever received. Great job on the ATC and I LOVE the tea you sent me. That is such a cute package idea....and I'm going to have to use it from now on. Really brightened my day. Thank you!!!! :)
Response: I am so glad you liked it! Yes packaging tea like that really makes it special; I took the idea from another swaper :P So glad to have been able to brighten your day!
Comment: I loved everything!!! Truly unique, special and a treasure. I love the card, I didn't know that company made that size of notecard- lovely! The envie was even decorated and the poem was a gem! Not to mention the main poetry book, which I will always keep. You are a gifted poet and I am not just saying that. I devoured every word and will go back and read them often! Thank you for being such a wonderful and creative person! You're an asset to swap-bot and the planet!
Response: Thank You SO MUCH! I am so happy you enjoyed it! I am also glad you liked the notecard- Ive had them for a longtime and love it when I find someone I can send them off to those who will apperciate them as much as I do! Thank You again for your heartglowing compliments!
Comment: What a lovely and thoughtful little package to come home to today! I love your wabi-sabi ATC, and how special to have the extra haiku ATC. It gave me goosebumps when I read the haiku, I love it when that happens! And then, a lovely long letter (two letters!) and photo from your garden, AND a beautiful piece of natural paper. This all just made me so happy today. You are right about how making this ATC was so different than usual by focusing on simplicity. These are very special ATCs and I feel privileged to be their new owner. I can put them in a meditation shrine. Thank you so much, 100 hearts for you. Oh, and welcome to the Wellness Workshop group too!
Response: I am so happy that you liked them. It is so wonderful when someone apperciates your swaps :-) And I feel terribly proud that my Haiku gave you goosebumps! (I love it when that happens too :D)
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I just love those ideas which you sent to me and stickers! They are so lovely! I like all of them, they are so perfect for my style :) Thank you! If I could I would give you million hearts ^^ Warm hugs and have a great day :)
Response: OH I am so glad you liked them all! I thought you would :D Your complements made my day great!
Comment: Gloria! If I could I would give you like five hearts! I was SO excited when I saw your little package at my door. I love love *love* when people package things in stuff like newspaper. The words and pictures on the outside, the book mark!! , the fishie pictures and stickers. Wow. I'm so impressed. I really love where your mind goes and I will definitely use some of the stuff you wrote. I really appreciate the thought you put into everything. Thanks so much for joining my swap!
Response: It fills my heart with such joy to be able to give you something you love so much especially for a swap that you created!
Comment: Gloria, thank you SO SO much for this wonderful package! I love everything, especially the wonderful ATC and this amazing windsock! I'm going to hang it outside tomorrow morning; it's just adorable. You did a great job on the tin, too; it is SO cool. And my husband says a BIG thanks for the Joker - he didn't have one like that and he loves it! What a great and thoughtful package; I appreciate it so much!
Comment: Thank you for the beautifel ATC's! I loved both of them, most of all the angel that hugs earth- beautiful! Thank you for making 2 ATC's!! I also loved the card and every thing you wrote in it- you are very kind.
Best wishes, and thank you!
Comment: I got your package on Friday and thought it was just lovely! I proudly display my Obama button on my hobo bag which I carry with me EVERYWHERE! Thanks so much for the thoughtful package.....Enjoy the last month of election season!
Comment: I love what you sent! If I could I would give you at least 3 hearts! Thank you for the teas! I especially enjoy your drawings on the list. I think I'll write you back :-) Greetings to your mother, too.
Response: Oh Thank You so much for the wonderful comments! I am so happy you enjoyed my resonses and drawings. Ive given my mom your greatings. I would love to recieve a letter back :-). Best wishes!
Comment: Thanks for sharing your thoughts! It's interesting how 20 people could look at that same picture and be inspired to write something totally different. I enjoyed your poetry. Thanks also for the cat and vintage heart stickers!
Comment: Thank you so much for telling me how your family uses Buddha figures and rosemary for good luck! I love both of them too! And for adding the paragraphs about your Grandmother's Swedish good luck traditions! Oh, and I'm from the south too, but instead of black eyed peas ('cause no one in the family likes 'em) we use navy beans and hamhocks for New Year's! Everything was so interesting! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: This is a gorgeous Goddess Doll....I LOVE her wire hair and you did such a great job on her! Thank you so much, she is being displayed on my sideboard for all to see!
Response: I am so glad you liked her!!!! And feel very flattered Indeed. This was my first goddess doll atempt-actually my first atempt ever sewing anything like it and I am sure to continue. It was SO much fun!!!
Comment: OMG! Thank You, this was amazing. I really don't know where to start. The necklace is beautiful. I love the card, the picture on the back of the envelope was actually my computer wallpaper for a long time. The charms are awesome, I love the little elephant. Thank you so much, it made my day :) <3!
Response: Oh I am so glad to hear that you liked everything! I had a lot of fun shopping for a person with simlare intrests to my own :-)
Comment: i love the atc and the fabulous ribbon! rainbow ANYTHING make me smile!
Response: Thank You so much. I am glad you liked the ribbon. I love that stuff and I thought it was so cute how on your profile you said that you where fruits about rainbows so I knew I had to throw some in :-D
Comment: Thanks for the cards. You might want to put your cards in sleeves or fold them well into a piece of paper. One of the cards you sent lost all of its beads and baubles on its way to me.
Response: Oh dear me. I AM SO SORRY!!! :-( I feel terrible.... I will try and be more careful next time. I hate to here that the card was ruined when it got to you. Maybe some time I can make another card and send it to you- carefuly send it to you.
