Comment: I finally got them! And they are lovely!!! I especially like the one made from the drop cloth ~ Thank you so much ~ And thank you for the lovely extras ~ I will put them to great use... Hugs Diana aka farmer di
Comment: JoannaTHSAL!!! I just picked up my package. I absolutely love the sweet pins you made. They were obviously made with me in mind. I will wear them all the time. I may even see what I can make to wear out of the 'wrapping'!! This was definitely a 'dance around the room' package opening. I will leave another note on your contact email. Thanks so much again. (Wish I could give you 4 hearts.)
Comment: Great art charms!! I really like the glass and the silver box charms. Also, your personalized touches with my initials and birthdate were very cool.
How did you drill holes in the game pieces? I have been wanting some of that glass glitter for a long time. I will enjoy putting each charm to good use in my art/jewelry. THANKS! Lisa (lisae817)
Response: I used a Dremel rotary tool that I picked up on clearance at Target to drill the holes in the game pieces
Comment: I love the background. How did you do the texture? It is difficult to make something with wax, mine turned out looking like a creature from the black lagoon. So I had to redo it several times.
Response: Ha ha! This was tricky for me too - I ended up putting some candle wax down and adding crayon shavings and then melting it all together with my embossing heat tool, which turned out to be rather fun. I made a horrible mess though so make sure you protect your work surface!
Comment: Thanks so much for the sleeves! My son has adopted the altered one already. (:
I, too, made a cloth one for my partner. I think they're more rewarding to make and feel nice on the cup. I can't wait to try out the one you sent! Thanks again!
Comment: Joanna: Your ATCs were excellent! Loved them! I think my favorite was Table of Contents but also loved Memory Lane. Love the 'antique' look of your ATCs. Also love your Harding Street Assembly Lab blurb on the back. Great idea! You are a fantastic artist - would love to trade with you again sometime. Thanks for your creativity! -Judy
Comment: Thankss for the awesome cards. They're so unique and interesting. I love the two with the felt hearts. GREAT WORK! Thanks for the extras too. It'll be fun to incorporate them into my next atcs.
Comment: Thank you so much. I love the danglies, and also the words you included. And yes, the coincidence of the letters on the tiles and my birthdate is quite something, as is the fact you downloaded Egyptian images before knowing I was your partner. Apologies for the late response, life has been complex in an unpleasant way these last weeks. Hope some passes of my lovely wand will help to turn things to a more positive direction.
Comment: Hi Joanna, I almost rated you for the ATC's in this box! I loved all those cute pincushions, they were all different and unique, the face, the fabric with the letters, one for my wrist, one for my finger and the felted one. Can you say spoiled!
Comment: Amazing ATC, I can see that you put a lot of time and work into this one..I think that you are very talented..And Thank you for the extras..I Thank you with a heart for an incredible package..
Comment: Thank you so so so so much! I loved it more than you can imagine. And thinks for the pin too! You really didn't have to but thank you for making me one that matched the vinyls. You deserve a million hearts!
Comment: Your ATC's are awesome!! Thankyou also for the ATC you made from the mini-kit I sent you- it was fantastic and great to see how you used it. I really do hope we swap again in the future too ;)
Comment: Hi Joanna....Wow I thought I put enough in my packets for about 6 ATC's but yours had enough in it for about 20! We have the same taste in ephemera...I loved it all there are too many things to list, many I've never seen before or don't own.
I have your addressed envelope and will try to make you something in the next while!
Comment: You sent a great package! Thanks for the extra ATC. It was also nice to read your artist statement for the project. I especially enjoyed reading about the 'unclaimed persons' area of the cemetary you chose. Thank you.
Comment: Thankyou, I loved getting this, it was a great surprise the way you packaged it. And not one bubble, but 4! You went beyond the minimum for this swap, and put effort into the packaging, wholly deserving the heart! ps. I love the cat pic!
