Comment: Thank you for the super cute Valentine's Day magnets! I love them all. I love the little mason jar baggies you sent them in, too. The card you made is too sweet! Thank you for the extra goodies you sent as well. I can't wait for our next holiday swap!
Comment: The felt snow globe ornament is so adorable! I love the little kitty with it's Santa hat and the trees all covered in buttons. It's just too cute! Thank you for the stocking of goodies. I love them all! Thank you for another awesome swap!
Comment: I love everything about this swap! I've looked at this Grim Reaper pattern a dozen times! I think he is absolutely adorable! I love the matchbox diorama and tags that you made. The treat bag is too cute. As is the Halloween cat washi and message sloth inside. And the stickers. LOL! We have great taste! Thank you so much for another wonderful swap. Christmas?
Comment: Thank you for the super cute weiner dog superhero! I love the detail on his sweet little cape. His mask is a nice touch, too. Thank you for my Adventure Time goodies as well. I can never have too many journals. The bag is so bright and colorful and it will come in handy. Thanks for another awesome swap!
Comment: I saw that it was in a little bag and I said, "This is going to be so CUTE!!!" And IT IS!!! The most adorable polar bear ever. He is now on my tree right up front. Thank you so much! I also appreciate the precious unicorn stickies. I'm using them in my mail journal already.
Comment: The spooky apple is too cute! The eyebrows have to be my favorite detail. He would definitely bite me before I bit into him. LOL Thank you for the extra Halloween goodies as well. I was stoked to get more stickers from Targét. I had some of those, but almost used them all. Of course they were the first things to sell out. I can't wait until our next swap!
Response: I was worried that you would already have the Target goodies, so I'm glad that worked out 😉
Comment: Such an adorable little Frida holding some flan (which I have never had before). I love the mariachi band card. The Jelly Belly's were delicious. Thank you for another fantastic swap. So when's our next one?
Comment: This is the cutest cupid EVER! I never expected an axolotl. TBH, when I first saw an axolotl, I was on deviantART and only saw a drawing of one and thought it was a new Pokemon. That was about 10 years ago and now I know different. I love, love, love the arrow you made. I made one out of a toothpick for a tiny cupid Bobby Hill I made a few years ago, but yours is WAY better. I am in love. I am going to find a way to place him in my workspace so I can see him all the time. He is perfect. Can you tell I love him? Are we doing Easter? Drop me a PM and let me know. You're the best!
Comment: What a cute little squirrel! I LOVE how you made the bag a part of itâ€™s â€œpunkinâ€ costume. Where do you get such soft felt? The card is adorable, too. You did a great job on it. Thank you so much for an awesome swap.
Response: I'm just glad that the bag helps stabilize him. The poor dear just kept tipping right over before I added the bag :) ha! That felt came from a craft fair ages ago. I'm glad you liked it all!
Comment: What a gentleman this gingerbread man is! He is so adorable! I love his monocle and pocket watch. His vest and tiny pocket are the best! Thanks a bunch! Also thank you so much for the button and cutest sloth Christmas washi!
Response: He wanted to make sure he was dressed in his finest to meet you ;)
Comment: OMGoodness! I cannot thank you enough for such a beautiful party llama! The detail is AMAZING! I love the card and the page flags, too. The card is going in my special place on my loft where I put the most recent Charlotte card. They are always so beautiful! The llama is so special to me, that I moved a Huck Gee Dunny out of his place of honor to put the party llama there. I'm absolutely thrilled. Thank you so much! Happy Belated Birthday!
Response: Awesome! I'm so glad :) I hope you two will have lots of fun partying together!!!
Comment: I love the subtlety of the Valentine theme as represented in your dreamcatcher. The heart shaped leaf, the heart shaped spot on the mushroom, and the heart shaped acorn. The fox is too cute. I just love everything about this woodland theme. Thank you for another awesome swap! (I even have the card hanging up.)
Comment: Great swap! I love the way you packaged it to look like a take-out from the restaurant, too cute! Thank you for the sweet Kuchi Kopi plushie, the Tina Dorbz and everything else. Thank you so much for swapping with me :)
Comment: Thank you for the super fun pineapple garland! It never even crossed my mind to make this swap as a paper craft. I think I was influenced by the swap graphic LOL. I love how you made it with all the ribbons to fill it out. I have a yellow kitchen. It will look great there. Thanks!!
Comment: He is the cutest! I love all the little French knots and his cute little bottom. I have him pinned to my tree stump pincushion and he is right at home. Thank you so much! Our birthday swap should be coming up soon . . .
Comment: I LOVE my wintry gnome! He is so adorable! I love all the French knots you used because I can't make one to save my life. You did a beautiful job. I have him sitting underneath my year-round tree. Thank you so much.
Comment: THANK YOU! You always make such amazing things for this swap. I love Neil Gaiman's books, so it's great having one on my tree (even if this particular book scared me!). And the card is a beautiful book-related addition to my small collection of Christmas cards received. Thank you!
Response: so glad that you liked it :) Thank you for the heart!
Comment: You send the most amazing packages! I love EVERYTHING! I just opened it two days ago (it got mixed up with my Christmas orders). The bookmark will be well-used. The sampler is going next to the hand-drawn map in my library downstairs. The berries... I might just eat them... carefully. heehee Everything was so very clever. But the tiny Finnick plushie is THE BEST! I am thinking of turning him into an ornament, but he's so perfect the way he is, I almost don't want to do anything to him. ACK! His eyes and his trident and his tiny little tail. Finnick!bunny is ADORABLE!!! Thank you for a wonderful package, as always!
Response: Awesome! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it all! I has fun making the Finnick bunny even if my lack of experience with wire made the trident a bit of a nightmare. Ha! ðŸ˜€
Comment: Yay! Another bunny! I love my new Frankenbunny! I shall put him on the shelf with his brothers. What's funny is I sent yours off today and I wrapped mine exactly the same way: same tissue paper; same baker's twine! Great minds think alike! Thanks for another great swap.
Response: How funny that we used the same wrappings :) Great mindsâ€¦ as you say. ha!
Comment: What an amazing PL I always love what you send me, and even though it took me two tries cause the first one I didn't get but then I read the letter went back and looked again slowly and Yes I got the mystery lol! Great job I love it.
Response: Thanks! I'm so glad that it made sense :) There was definitely a moment as I finished it where I thought, "oh no, what if this doesn't make sense to anyone but me'. Ha! I had a slight panic attack :) ha!
Comment: OMG! i love it! as always, your crafting skills have exceeded expectations! :) i love that you used pics from our tea time in London! and all the goodies are wonderful! thank you so much for the amazing pocket letter!
Comment: OMG! This is the cutest Jake stuffie I've ever seen! I love him so much! I'm still debating on his placement in my room, because I want him nearby. I'm jealous of your new die cutting toy btw. :P Thank you so much for an amazing swap!
Comment: Thank you thank you thank you! Your swaps are always so full of craft and care and kindness. I feel so special receiving them and diving into one item after the next. I admit I opened the stuffies first; they are AMAZING! But I truly loved everything, as so much made me smile! Magnifying glass, key, framed art, poppy, magnifying glass, and so much more! I had such a fun time unwrapping and finding homes for the items in my home. Thank you so much! You deserve SO MANY HEARTS!
Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! I knew right away that I wanted to try making the otter & hedge stuffie :)
Comment: Charlotte where to begin! You always manage to "WOW", every time we swap! Your such a talented artist / crafter I appreciate all the time and love you put into our swaps. You really do inspire me to try my best. ;D I love the adorable mini 'Wonderland' book with the pocket tags so much I'm displaying it on our bookcase! Your handmade interactive Alice card is so fun, I'm really analyzing the cleverness of it! No surprise your feltie is expertly crafted. What kind of felt do you use? It's much nicer than the felt I buy from my local craft store. I love how you used ribbon for his legs and his tiny pipe. :) The framed Alice portrait is just darling. I enjoy the delicate embellishments outside the frame! All the other goodies like the postcards and charms were much appreciated too. I hope you like the swap from me and I look forward to our next Alice felt stuffy swap! Hugz
Response: Awesome! I'm really glad that you enjoyed it all :) I'll pm you the felt info.
Comment: Ooooh sweet, I love your layered ATC!! You fit the biggest, best quotes on your ATCs, it's like magic lol. Did you make the note card? It's crazy gorgeous too! I was excited that Clara will be back next season as well :)
Response: Thank you so much for the heart. I did make the card too :)
Comment: I love the card! I don't get many cards this time of years, so I am happily displaying it on my side table. It's beautiful and creative--well done! I haven't opened the ornament yet. It was too beautifully wrapped so it went right under my tree for Christmas morning :-) EDIT: Opened ornament on Christmas. It is perfect! My tree feels so much more literary now :-) You did a wonderful job crafting it. Thank you for the beautiful work!
Response: Thank you so much for the sweet comments and the heart :) Until next Bookmas...
Comment: My little reindeer is adorable! I want to put her on the little tree in my room, but she may be a little big, so she'll just have to sit under it. She's too precious! I love her! The card and tag were also too cute. I love the penguins. Thanks so much for another wonderful swap!
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comments and the heart :) I took your cute snowman to work with me so I could have something fun on my desk for the holidays!
Comment: Too cute! I love them all, but the egg is my favorite. Now to decide whether to share them with my family and put them on the refrigerator or be selfish and put them on the magnetic board in my room. :P Thanks for another fabulous swap!
Response: So glad you liked them! I took mine to work :) They are stuck to my filing cabinet to spruce it up a bit :)
Comment: This is such a beautiful book, Charlotte! You did a great job on it- this will be the first time I have ever made one as well! In my new place I plan to display some of my DW stuff, and this little book will def be put out for others to see! Thanks again!
Response: Awesome! I'm so glad that you liked it. We'll have to try these again some time :)
Comment: Thank you for the great ATC. I love the color scheme. The daemons were my favorite part of the series and Iorek Byrnison is one of my favorite characters! And the quote is powerful. This ATC is so perfect for the series. Thank you SO much!
Response: Glad you liked it. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I received the swap on time but waited a while to open things. I actually opened a few items a day and then a bunch on Harry's birthday. Thank you so much! The Hufflepuff magnets immediately went up on my fridge and my metal bookcase at work. The map is beautiful and glittery! My very own luck potion! Snitch pin and banner and that bookmark BLEW MY MIND. I hadn't ever made that connection (silly me). Remus is my favorite character and I didn't already have an ATC of his--that quote is part of the chapter that I memorized word-for-word *G* Thank you so much for such thoughtful and fun goodies!
Response: So hopefully you opened this at some point....yes?....no?
Comment: Weasley can save anything. He never leaves a single ring. That's why all Gryffindors sing: Weasley is our King! Thanks for the great ATC and the amazing little snitch! It's so detailed and well done. I love it! :-)
Comment: Absolutely love it - so pretty and also so interesting. Makes me want to visit now! :D Especially since there are so many places to walk, to be outdoors, I love that! :))) I'm really glad we had this as a swap theme, makes me discover new places. :)
Comment: The sleeping fox is too cute! I'm so envious of your embroidery skills! I can't make a french knot to save my soul. Yours are perfect! I sent your package out today. I think you'll really love it. I wanted to keep it myself. lol Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked the little fox :)
Comment: I forgot to rate this even though I got it last week!
I am such a big fan of everything I've gotten from you. You make amazing plushies! This candy cane-horned guy is no exception. I'm so glad you were my swap partner again!
Comment: Oh my goodness Miss Charlotte! What a fantabulous package!!! I love it all!!! <3 <3 <3 Thank you sooo much! The embroidered parachute and painting are definitely going on my wall! ;) I'm taking the hob bag shopping with me too! Muchas gracias! :D
Response: So glad that you liked your goodies! I wanted to be sure and send you a nice and full ziploc :)
Comment: Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!! I love it, it's brilliant! :) Thank you so much! K-9 plushie, 4th Doctor ATC and bookmark and picture, both my favourite characters! :) And a Book of Spoilers! :) And a Dalek picture! (My boyfriend just started the old seasons and he loves "Exterminate!", so he may get something from this swap... well... maybe!) And the bad guys in the Tardis! :) Thank you again, that really made my day! :)
Did you sent me exactly these seven packages? The envelope arrived all torn through all the layers and if there was anything else apart from that card with a note, I didn't get it. I hope, it still was complete, when it was seven thing.
And thanks once more! :)
Response: I am sorry to hear that the package was torn, but at least everything was still in it. I'm really glad that you liked it all. I worked very hard to make it a good group of items :)
Comment: I love it! Your lion was even cuter than mine. I got a big kick out of the reused enve that I had sent you.
Response: Yeah! So glad you liked him. I modeled him after a lion on etsy and plan to try and make the other house mascots in the same style. Yep, your envelope never even made it to my reuse pile...it just got sent right back out ;D
Comment: I really thought I rated you for this hehe, guess only in my head. I love the card as always you have a style about you that i always know it's you who sends it without lookin at the name and i love that we are all so different, thanks for the great postcard
Comment: I love it! The poem is great, the background is beautiful and I like what you did with the dual color highlighting to distinguish between the verses. I am happy to add this to my Blackout Poetry Swap journal. Thank you! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely ATCs to add to my collection. This has been such a fun series :-) And thank you for the extra card! I love it and set it up right in front of my boxed set of Hunger Games books on my bookshelf.
Comment: MerKitty is amazing! This might very well be my favorite swapped monster yet. I love how it's a fairly simple design, but has all of these wonderful elements that give it depth (like cheeks with whiskers and the stitches on the tail). Thank you!
Response: Yeah! I'm so glad that you like Merkitty. Thank you for the sweet comments :)
Comment: Hey, I really enjoyed reading your zine. I went by the post and opened it in front of a friend who I've been telling about swap-bot and she got a kick out of it too. We both went, YUM, after reading your food and drink. Now that is what I call some doodling, really nice. Thanks so much : )
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comments and heart! You should see if they have a le pain quotidien restaurant location near you. They have super yummy food!!!
Comment: Fabulous atcs as always. I can :totally see having a set of these. Thanks!
Response: Thanks for the heart :) I'm envisioning these cards as placards that the capitol might put at each train station or something. Sort of showing a bright and sunny version of that district even if it's not the reality :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your trip around Los Angeles. It sounds like there are so many things to do. I like small theaters too. Sounds like there are some great places to eat too.
What a clever thing to do with your photos - making that wonderful little booklet with your photos of small critters and such. What a fun idea. Thank you so much. :)
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you Charlotte for an Amazing parcel! I genuinely love everything you made, everything was wrapped so pretty too. Your handmade Alice theme cards are so professional - you should sell these in your Etsy shop! The candy with the cute tags are so sweet. Did you know I collect embroidery hoop art or are you a mind reader? hehe. I love the one you made, I already found a space on my wall for it. Your stuffy creations are ALWAYS amazing! I love all the detail you put into the Cheshire Cat, the detail threading for the teeth is so cleaver! WoW!!! I look forward to our next LP/Stuffy exchange. Big Hug
Response: Thank you so much! I did not know that you collected hoop art, so that is a really great surprise! The teeth on the Cheshire cat were a happy accident :) Until next time....
Comment: Thank you sooo much for everything. :D I got yours now and started off with your pressies stright away - I love everything. :))) The snowy globe ornament is awww, the little gingerbread plushie is just adorable, the Skinny is beautiful *loves* and the journal is just what I needed right now. :) Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely ATC. I grinned when I got it. I loved that quote ever since I first heard it! Matt Smith is a great Doctor, though I still prefer David Tennant. After all, he was my first. The ATC is amazing, though! I love how the Tardis is raised up. Your ATC is now up on my wall along with the other Doctor Who ATCs I've made/received. Thanks again, and happy swapping!
Response: Yeah! Thank you so much for the heart :)
Comment: Oh my gosh Charlotte. I want to give you like 18 hearts for this amazing swap. The little penguin is frikking adorable! i just love it to bits!!!!! And the District cards? Wow. The packaging was wonderful and the cards themselves were ... I don't know the words. They spoke so much of the districts. Simple, yet not-does that make sense? I love that you incorporated the seals into the cards! YOU ROCK!
Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely comment. It really made my day!
Comment: Thank you so much for making me one of your lovely matchboxes. Love the clear heat embossed bats and pumpkins and the inside - WOW! Expertly made and so adorable. Thank you! Big hug P.S I love the little red riding hood illustrated post card. :)
Response: Cool! So glad you liked it. I had fun trying to make that little vampire extra dazzle-y. Isn't that postcard great! I got it on etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/sandragrafik. Her stuff is so cute!
Comment: Oh my goodness! The two in one tweedle dee and tweedle dum concept is sooo cool! The colors you chose is pretty and the details are amazing. Love the tiny french knot freckles! Thank you for another wonderful swap! :) Hugz
Response: Yeah! I'm so glad that you liked them. I'm really happy that the idea worked out as well as it did :)
Comment: Oh my goodness, what an absolutely amazing Jack-o-lantern! I am incredibly impressed with the details - like the rolled stem, the embroidered vines, the French knots. Wow!!! Thank you so much for making my day!
Response: Yeah! So glad you liked the jack-o-lantern. I had fun adding all the embroidery details. Your comments really made my day :)
Comment: Received a lovely parcel and of course haven't opened it all yet, but I'm daring to rate you already since I *know* it'll be great. :) I'll update the text later on. Love the cute paperÃ¨ :D And the card!
Response: Yeah! I ordered that wrapping paper last year and have been dying to use it :)
Comment: I love your stuffies, I tried making one for this swap and it did NOT work out lol. One day you will have to teach me :-)
Response: I'm so glad you like my stuffies. I have a lot of fun making them :) I've found that a key in making them is to use wool felt. It holds together so much better when cut into little pieces. Hope that helps!
Comment: OMGosh! Fawkes is so beautiful! the embroidery is awesome! and i love that you added little feet! :) the Dumbledore ATC is very funny and unique! and i love the deathly hallows stamp you used on the wrapping paper and notecard! thanks so much!
Comment: This was one FAB swap. :D Thank you so much for your wonderful work in my journal â€“ I LOVE it all. :D And of course loved working with everyone elseâ€™s journal in return. Iâ€™m the proud owner of a paranormal book now, heeheeh. That experience while picnicking must have been really surreal. Wah! :o They crept up on you and probably had a laugh. :D
Response: So glad that you liked it. This was a really fun project!
Comment: Thank you for the FABULOUS matchbox shrine. I love it!!! I love the handmade matchbox and the flap you added inside. It tells the story in sequential order. The Wonka Candy Bar, Golden Ticket, Charlie shocked to find the Golden Ticket, to Mr. Willy Wonka. Your attention to detail and cleanliness is impeccable. This is wonderful, thank you for making my day!
Response: Thank you! I had a lot of fun making the shrine :)
Comment: I am so happy to have received this swap. I am really impressed with your imaginative creativity. I love all the handmade items. The tea wallet is cute. The Queen of Hearts altered playing card is amazing. I love the Mad Hatter bookmark - it must have been a lot of work. The mini Alice altered journal is too cool. The Cheshire Cat note card is really fun. And the Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum magnet is one of my favorites. Thank you so much for one of the most unique and generous swaps I have received.
Response: Yeah! I'm so glad that you liked it all. I had a lot of fun working on this swap and was lucky enough to have a lovely friend to let me borrow all of her cool Alice themed stamps! Thanks for the wonderful comment. It's always nice to know the effort is appreciated :)
Comment: Wow Charlotte! I Love your Alice in Wonderland Red Queen stuffy you made. :) The detail in the red roses in her hair, the way you stitched the lips and the hearts and added blush to her cheeks is amazing! You are the most talented stuffy maker I have ever met. I hope you like the stuffy I'm making you (it's the Red Queen too)! Big Hug
Response: Thank you so much! You have made my day! You are so sweet!!! I'm delighted that you like her :) I really got inspired by all the lovely needle work on your caterpillar to try a bit more embroidery. I can't wait to see what you have made :) You know what's funny... I almost did the caterpillar and mushroom last time too. We would have had twin swaps!!!
Comment: Thank you Charlotte for a wonderful private swap! You are a very talented felt stuffy maker and I am so excited to own one of your pieces. What an adorable White Rabbit, the tiny watch, fuzzy tail and small button eyes makes it extra cute. I hope we will do many more stuffy swaps together. Hug
Response: I'm so glad that we did this swap. It was a lot of fun :)
Comment: OMG OMG OMG! You deserve a star, a heart and a thousand of hugs! I luuuurve my parcel, you make my day. For real =) Thank you very much for put a lot of effort and love on our swaps, everything is amazing and I love the banner. XOXO
Response: Cool! I'm so glad that you liked it all. Once I had the idea for the banner I couldn't wait to make it right away :)
Comment: Yay!!! You are awesome, I loooove my ATCÂ´s! My favorite one is the one of the letter "X", the little key is so cute =)
Thanks a lot for the extras, you always know what kind of stuff I just love!! xOxO
Comment: It's a lovely PC, thank you. I was really confused at first. It was written to me with a Nov cancellation on the PC mailed in an envie with a Feb cancel. I thought this might be an old archived swap -- but it wasn't. Thanks for the PC again, it is both lovely and a mystery!
Response: Oh, that's so funny. I guess that my fake postage and cancellation stamp are too realistic ;) Hopefully you saw the swap information in the top right corner of the PC :)
Comment: Thank you SO MUCH! Absolutely beautiful booklet (and I'm not just saying it because of the pictures ;))) and great idea. Bella's done good work. ;D
And aw, Valentine's card! Thank you - it's so cute. I never get any, boring here doesn't do Valentine's day, so it's special to me. :) Thank you!!!
Comment: Wiii, your package is here! =D
Thank you very much, the dotee is soo cute, and the little heart in the butt is adorable!
And I loooove the gingerbread stuffie, gosh is my favorite I swear! =D Thanks for the ATCÂ´s and the extras, you spoiled me!
Comment: Thank you so much for the absolutely FAB card. I laughed myself to bits about the penguins surrounding the two love birds. ;D And Edward's message. :D
The bookmark is great - thank you!!!
Response: I kind of got obsessed with the penguin idea :) I actually have a different surprise that I made you for this swap, but wasn't able to send because I couldn't wait it the long line at the post office. I will send it later. I just had to replace it with something flat so I could use the automated postage machine (only works for items that do not need a customs notice attached to them).
Comment: I want to give you a million hearts! I do! Your drawing and artistic skills has me FLOORED. I am so humbled by your amazing package! I'm framing your Mrauder's map, it's just too amazing for words! THANK YOU for the ATC's. I love them. I love collecting them too, but sometimes I'm not so sure my own ATC skills are up to par to trade with someone, so to see a whole set as an extra!!!!! Well the neighbors probably heard me squealing! It was amazing, all of it, thank you just doesn't do justice!
Response: I'm embarrassed that I forgot to mention this in the note that went with your swap, but I didn't draw the map. I downloaded. I did watercolor it in, but the drawing itself was someone else's work. I got it here: http://www.britta.com/hogwarts/Year6/prep/map/mapnp.html
I am really glad to hear that you liked it all :) I saw those pictures of the HP kids and just wanted to make a little something with them. There are atc traders of all skill levels here, so please don't worry about being a beginner :)
Comment: When I saw you were my partner for this swap, I knew I'd be happy with my stuffie! I was not disappointed! Gerald is the cutest little bat on Earth! His heart nose and "back tattoo" are the perfect touch. Thanks girl!
Comment: I love what you did for these two pieces! Dumbledore is awesome and you did great :) I'm so glad your Forks trip went well! I've always wanted to stay at the Miller Tree Inn, but they only have one room that accepts dogs and it's always been booked. I'll have to check that store out!! Thanks so much! <3
Response: I'm so glad that you liked the goodies :) Thanks again for all that helpful trip info!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the goodies! I LOVE everything. :D The cup and spoon are so lovely, the tea smells mmmmmmmmh, the choco mushrooms OMG how cute, the cards are beautiful and I could go on. But what I find most adorable is the stuffie! It hops around the table and wants everyone to drink from it. LOL Thank you!!!
Response: I'm so pleased that you enjoyed all the goodies especially that little stuffie :) Thanks!
Comment: thank you so much for the Halloween goodies! i love the BOO decoration! the milk-carton and skull candies are too cute! and i love the vampire pumpkin stuffie and the notecard is so cute! everything is on display around the house! so festive! thank you again!
Response: Awesome! I'm so glad that you liked it all :)
Comment: Um... what did I want to do here... um... em... uh... errr... rate maybe? Ah right. Rate. How do you rate again? *hides ATC under a book* OK, now I can rate: THANK YOU for this dazzling ATC. :D The side-effects are quite strong - which is how it should be. ;) And thank you for the adorable stickers!!!
Response: ha ha ha I tried to find the most dazzling image I could :)
Comment: sorry this rating is late! i swear i rated you, but it's not showing up. oh well... THANK YOU SO MUCH for the beautiful ATCs! Riley and Bree and Felix are a few of my favorite characters! i love the ribbons and the pink and black you used. very chic! :)
Response: Thanks so much! I'm feeling like the vampires need a bit of a royal touch with the lace lately ;)
Comment: Love this ATC, great work!! But might have been even better with a darker color for the border and details - Pam doesn't really come across as a pastels kind of girl, IMO. :-) Wonderful design idea though.
Response: Thanks for the rating! I chose that color for the border and text to compliment her lipstick color :)
Comment: *adores* thank you so much for this swap as well - it's quite simply ***beautiful*** and I've got it here dangling from a shelf where my laptop is. And it SPARKLES! :D
Hmh, what CD swap could be next...
Response: Thank you so much! Maybe we could do a kawaii themed one or maybe a happy things one :)
Comment: Goodness I'm a terrible procrastinator! Even with my homework... Thanks for thinking of me while you were visiting Hogwarts! I didn't know they were open in the summer. The night shot is beautiful and I love all the sparkles on it. Is that a spell you learned? Thanks again.
Response: There are mostly just house elves at Hogwarts during the summer, but I wanted to visit my friend Dobby so it seemed like the perfect opportunity :) ha!
Comment: OMGosh! Thanks so much for a wonderful Red Inspiration kit! You put the coolest goodies in that wonderful netting you wrapped everything in!!! The tag is just too stinking cute! :D I love all the wonderful goodies! The ribbon, and ric-rac are really cool! I love the plastic lacing and the twine you included! It reminds me of candy cane! Ha! The ribbon flowers are gorgeous! You'll have to show me how to make those! The bag of all the little goodies - buttons, etc are just wonderful! And I love the stamped images you provided too! Just a wonderful mix of "Red" Inspiration!!! I can't wait to use all these goodies!!! Thank you! :D
Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful ATC!!! I love the water coloring you used on the picture! It turned out really beautiful!!! You are just too good at water coloring! :D Thanks for the Cullen Crest address labels too! I sure can use those!!! :D They turned out really cool!
Comment: i love the hippofairy pin cushion! :) thank you so much for making it in pretty purple! i think i'll use it today!
Response: I forgot to tell you that I did not glue in the cushion part incase you needed to adjust the ring elastic. It was pretty wedged in there so I think it will stay unless you need to remove it :)
Comment: thank you so much for the wonderful package! :) i laughed so hard at the Cops postcard! how funny and clever! i don't know if i'll be able to wait till the movie to eat the candy. and i'll definitely be wearing my Team Carlisle pin to the midnight show! :) you're the best! thanks so much!
Response: Thanks so much! I totally understand about the candy. Heck, I wanted to eat them too :) I made the Carlisle pin from a little paper mache canvas from Zinnia :) I couldn't resist making that extra Cops card. That little skit from the MTV awards was just too funny to pass up :) And for the record, I would totally see that movie, ha!

Comment: That was really nice. I love the matchbox, never got one of those before and the sun stuffie is adorable. Thank you so much! I had to laugh at the envelope, I reuse mine until they have no more life in them too.
Response: Sorry that the envelope was a bit of a mess, but I had used so much tape on it I decided to just go with it since it was only going one state over :)
Comment: thank you so much for everything...of course my 15 year old daughter pretty much punked everything from me as soon as she seen it - lol...i love how you embellished the lunchbag - did you put the bag in a printer to get the image on there? loved it!
Response: Take your goodies back girl :) ha ha ha Yes, I did put the lunch bag thru the printer. I had to tape down the opening and the flap so they didn't get caught up. Worked pretty well :)

Response: Thanks so much! The diary ones are always a struggle for me, but I think it's good to try something harder every now and then :) Plus Rosalie is such a bee-hive that it was fun to try and think of what she would complain about :)

Response: Cool! I'm so glad that you love it!!!! The pages are made from drink coasters :)
Comment: What a surprise! I had seen this ATC in your Flickr and loved it but didn't know you were my partner. I still have a huge smile on my face. I can honestly say this is one of my favourite ATCs in my collection now. Thanks a million!

Lovely to receive on my birthday♥

Comment: I love that stamp, too, Charlotte! It is so much fun and could be used to make wonderful cards, too! Thanks for the matchbox and the extras. BTW, I loved the little round hummingbird tags and the inchies.
Comment: Thank you so much for this beautiful card! I love the way you put the pictures & text and the colouring and all. :) It's one of my favourite scenes in both book and movie so I was especially looking forward to this one!
Comment: Thank you SO much for this swap!!! :D I love everything you've sent me - I've never seen such clips before and they're such a cool idea. Knee socks are always a good thing for me. :D And the headband is lovely. Even more so since it's a favourite colour of mine. Thank you!!! I'll definitely PM you in a second. :)

Comment: You completely and utterly rock! I love the notebook--it's adorable! And the bookmark is lovely; I can't wait to use it. Now for the ATCs...where do I begin? They are incredible! Your usual amazing artwork. They are all gorgeous. The bubbling cauldron and cute frog peeking out is awesome. And Babbitty is so creative and clever! Love all the quotes you chose. I really loved this book and am so happy to have it "illustrated" in your beautiful cards. Thank you! A hundred hearts! ♥
Response: Thank you! I am so glad that you liked it all :)
Comment: Hello Charlotte,
WoW! What a joy I was greeted with when I opened your envelope after it had arrived. Your note presentation was wonderful. I love making all kinds of papercrafts as well. So, I knew right then and there that whatever you had done I would be very happy with. Then I was greeted with some sample pieces of paper I could use for various papercrafts. Thank you for your genorosity. Then I found the greatest gift, your lovely "chickie" ornament that you created for me. It is absolutely gorgeous and very cute. I also really liked the presentation of the ornament. I am curious about how the ornament is made. If you are willing to share, I would love the directions. Your ornament will hang proudly on a Easter tree this year in my home. Thank you for your beautiful work and all your genorosity. I hope we have further opportunities to meet at future swaps. Until we cross paths again, Happy Swapping!
Response: Thank you so much! I amso glad that you liked it. I will send you a message with some instructions :)
Comment: I wish I could give a heart with little stars around it! This journal turned out beautiful and I love the note you sent. I actually am writing a story based on a dream I had. Thank you so so much!
Response: A heart with stars around it,...Wow! Thanks so much. It's always nice to know your project has found a good home :)
Comment: Wow! There were so many options to choose from I wasn't sure which ones to use!! I hope you like the design I came up with :) Hope to hear from you soon. It will be back in the mail lickety split!
Response: Glad I gave you enough stuff. Can't wait to see what you made :)
Comment: first of all...thank you for the wonderful card (I love it...glitter and all)...and second, what a beautiful handmade card! :) and the little scraps of paper? I love this sooo much! this ATC is definitely one of my favorites! thank you thank you thank you..............<3
Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad that you enjoyed it all :)
Comment: I am blown away by these ATCs. My seasons card is beyond beautiful. I love it. ♥ Thank you. And the HP and Twilight cards...I hardly know what to say. They are fantastic! The "pop-up" bits are perfectly placed and give the card depth and the glitter on Edward and the prophecy orb is perfect. As always, they are beautifully done. And the card you sent them in...gorgeous! Thanks so much for everything!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked them! As always, this was a lot of fun :)
Comment: Thank you for the Coraline ATC's! OMG... the ATC's were fantastic - and beautiful! The shimmer ink was a perfect touch and the embellishments you made (spool of thread, needle and buttons) were absolutely wonderful!!! Great Job!
Response: Thank you! You've gotta see the one's I rec'd. They are amazing!
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the ATCs and "When you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave" is pretty much my motto :) I loved the book and have'nt seen the movie yet, it isn't showing here yet. I'm going to go see it and I'll try to keep the book and movie separate in my mind. From what I've seen of it, it doesn't look like my idea of the book (I thought that it would look "darker") but as an animation it looks pretty cool.
Response: Thanks so much! When you do get to see the movie, definitely keep the movie and book separate in your mind. It will be much more enjoyable that way :)
Comment: These are incredible! I LOVE these cards. The Phoenix is fantastic (did you draw that?)...the colors, the layout...awesome! And Ollivanders is simply spectacular: the "wand" is awesome and the background is just beautiful. Did I mention that I love these cards?! *gush* And the extras...they are fabulous! Love the paper and those cool stamps. I can't wait to use them. You spoiled me. :-) Thank you so very much!
Response: Thank you so much!!!! I'm really glad that you enjoyed them :) I got the Phoenix from a tattoo pattern I found online. I can not draw, but I can trace :) I thought the idea of using a toothpick for a wand would be fun :) I'm glad you like the extras. I had those stamps in my stash and they were just screaming your name! Thanks again for the wonderful feedback!
Comment: Thank you! Your card was very appropriate and carefully executed. Many cards are fussy. I like your clean design.
As a newbie, I have a question. I know that you can order precut cards, but how did you get the small thick paper into your printer? I canâ€™t figure out how you were able to type on the back of the card. Thanks again for a very nice card!
Response: Thanks so much! Glad that you liked it :) I don't use precut cards. I print up a group of card backs (in this case I think there were four) all at once on one sheet of card stock. Then I trim them down and add the rest of my layers to the front of that card. The single sheet of card stock runs through my printer without a problem. Hope that makes sense. If you have anymore questions feel free to message me :)
Comment: I adore my chocolate frog cards of Harry and Ron. I am so happy to have them. They are your signature quality work. Love them! And what can I say about the snitch?! It's AWESOME! What a creative card. I love it! Thank you for everything.
Response: Thank you so much! This was really fun and I'm looking forward to our next swap :)
Comment: Thank you! This is a gorgeous ATC! Beautiful, quality work. I am thrilled to add it to my collection (and would love to trade with you anytime)! I love your idea of doing the characters as chocolate frog cards! I hope you are saving some for yourself. ;-)
Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad that you enjoyed it because I just sent you a Luna one today ;) Yep, I definitely keep one for myself as well :) Would love to trade again anytime too!
Comment: Oh Cedric .. so gorgeous! Loove the ATC thank you! I'll have to come back and give you a heart, because it won't let me right now. :(
Response: I guess you must have loved it since you peeled it off the backing, glued it to a new card, covered the text with a scrap of paper and sent it to your partner in the swap as if it was your own work. Very lame! A complete lack of artistic integrity!!!
