Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely envies. The one with the raised stencil pattern was really cool, and your collage envies were really fun too! I wonder if the first round ever made it back to you...?
Response: I’m glad you got the evies. No the first ones I sent still haven’t made it back to me. They may have found another home...lol
Comment: Tonia: Thank you so much for this wonderful collaged journal page with a bird. I love all the different layers you created with paper and burlap and die cuts. And the little wooden bird atop the musical circle is just perfect! Thanks for a fun, fun swap.
Comment: You did an amazing job with this swap!!! I was worried I didn't do a good enough job explaining the requirements of the swap, but you definitely gave me confidence and encouragement to continue to host more. I will personally reach out to you when I do. I appreciate the support. So back to the swap, OMG I love love love the extras! I've always wanted to make one of those flags now I have an example. Your kit looks soooo professional, really it's something I'd buy at the craft store. That's how good your kit is...Thanks so much!
Response: Thank you! I’m glad you like it. It’s always a challenge having to send to the host of the host of the swap. 🥰 You did a great job with explaining. Yes, I’ll be looking forward to participating in more of your swaps. Keep hosting! Take care and be safe.
Comment: Oh my goodness, its so beautiful! You outdid yourself! I love the buttons and the lace is pretty touch. I don't wan't to glue it in my journal because the back is so pretty too! Thank you so much!
Response: Hi! I’m glad you like it. There is a way to attach it by using some washi tape and taping it in along one of the sides. It will be like an inserted page. If you have any questions about how to do that just let me know. Take care!
Comment: This is a beautiful atc, Tonia!!! The sparkly butterflies work great with the beautiful image of the woman! And I love the use of craft feathers on atcs! Thank you for sharing your amazing atc with me!
Comment: WOW! Tonia, this journal is beautiful! I find new goodies each time I flip through it. The tuck ins, the ATC's, the die cuts! The cover is so cool, and with my name on it! Thank you so much for such an amazing swap. You just made my entire week!!!!
Response: Awe! I’m glad you like it. I love making journals. Enjoy and use it as you see fit. Be safe!
Comment: Hi Tonia~
Lovely to swap together again. Your summer garden page is delightful. Love the diecuts and, unlike so many others, I LOVE touches of glitter! Love the little rounded corners, too! Thanks so much.
Response: I’m glad you liked it. I like participating in your swaps b/c it gives great ideas to use for journals.
Comment: Hi Tonia! OMG OMG OMG!! I looovveee this journal! I saw the package in the mail and was so excited to open it! I love the technique you used and will go look up the youtube channel to learn how to do it! I get most of my inspiration from Pam at the Paper Outpost but I realized the other day, all of my work is starting to look the same and I feel I need to shake it up! LOL! Thank you also for all the little extras on the inside. Love love love! Have a happy and safe summer!!!! P.S. I get you on the hand writing. My journal had typed letters with an old typewriter font! Can't hardly write anymore (long stuff anyway) and keep its legibility!!
Comment: Wow T - great items. The napkins, notecard and 3 of hearts are gorgeous and amazing. I'll have fun with creating the postcards too. Thank you so much for the fun package ^+^. ps: love your envelope art
Comment: Wow, this is absolutely beautiful!! Great work, I can tell you made such wonderful details (the fancy stitching around the cards - swoon!!). Love it so much, it will be a highlight of one of my junk journals! Thank you!
Response: Awe! I’m glad you like it. thanks and take care!
Comment: your lovely peacock postcard got delayed somewhere along the way - appropriate for the topic I suppose! Did you draw the peacock? I can tell there are two layers but can't quite figure out what is going on...
Response: I’m glad it made it to you. No I didn’t draw it, it’s actually a napkin.
Comment: I love Somerset Studio magazine. I remember when it was first published back in the 90s. It sure makes for a very pretty zine. Thank you for creating and sharing Tverne05. .... I've printed and photographed the zines and posted the photo in the discussion section of the swap page.
Comment: Thank you for contributing to another thought provoking round of LQ - the brain is certainly a beautiful part of our human existence, and we often “forget to remember” how significant it is!!! Makes me want to go watch the Wizard of Oz again 😊 BTW, I ❤️ your analogy of our brain as a CPU! So techno-geek & awesomely accurate to boot!!
Comment: Great envelopes-such variety. And thats a good idea to make flip books-I've joined so many of these envelope making swaps-some envelopes are just too pretty to not use them in crafts. Thanks for the idea sharing and the color me Faith card as your note! Stay safe!
Comment: Your Alice in Wonderland theme is perfect for this current 'mad' world we live in. Well done. I like the stamps images, colour and layout.
Thanks so much for joining the swap and sharing your work.
I took a photo of all the printed zines and added it to the discussion section of the swap page:
Comment: Cool handmade card! You're right - there are no words, really. We are doing pretty much the same as you are. Feeling blessed in a lot of ways. The online school is probably the hardest part. We're on spring break this week, so getting a respite. I was temporarily laid off, but have some contract work that will be coming in. Thanks for the card and sharing your experiences! :):)
Comment: This was absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much!
Response: I’m glad you liked it. I had assembled everything and organized my papers into signatures then I set it aside for a while to decide if that’s what I wanted to do. Then I messed around with it until I was pleased then I bound everything together. Enjoy!
Comment: Wonderful selection of stamps!!I didn't have any of them. I like the Tim Holts ones but don't have that set. Especially liked the sets of the ladies and the monsters. My great grandson has a birthday coming up and he will love those monsters. Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank you for the cute pocket tag embellished with the mystery supplies.I love the papers you used and the Jane Davenport napkin. I used a Jane Davenport face stamp on the ATC's I made for this swap. Sorry for the late rating.
Comment: Hi Tonia! Your pockets are, in a word, wonderful! I love them all but my absolute favorite is the one created from a piece of sheet music accented with that watercolor-ish heart on the front--gorgeous! It was also very clever to lean the Tim Holtz boy against the desk--I had to look twice to see what you had done. Really wonderful swap; thank you so much!
Response: I'm glad that you like it. Sometimes I have one idea in mind but by the time i try implementing it and when I get to the end it has changed. Sometimes I start a project and have to put it aside for a few days and come back to it. It's all good though. I try to do something creative every day no matter how big or small to keep the juices flowing...lol. I do take a break but it has to be a planned break.😄🤗
Comment: I am So so sooo glad I got you as a swap partner. Not only was everything beautifully presented but also carefully constructed. Such a variety of images, on different papers and the combinations work so well together. Your creativity and neat construction have inspired me. I will definitely be replicating (attempting) many elements of this swap. You're a mail artist extraordinaire. What a treat. Thank you!!
Response: Lol, awe thanks! I had initially prepared everything to participate in the 2nd one but missed the sign up deadline. So when #3 posted I made sure I signed up for it. I’m glad you like it. Sometimes it takes me just as long to package my swaps as it does to make it. Most times I do like to make my own envelopes. Have a great weekend!
Comment: Your mini zine is great! The monsters are hilarious! and the little doilies are so cute too! It looks like you have some really fun stamps to play with this year :) Thanks for joining the swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the swap AND for all of the extras. And I loved how you decorated your swap with stickers and I have a confession to make ... I plan on re-using the stickers in my planner (once I'm comfortable enough to actually start decorating it. lol) Thank you again!
Response: Lol. I’m glad you like it. Yes, reuse the stickers. I’m glad didn’t glue them down like I normally do. 🤗
Comment: What a fun booklet! Love all the details on the cover and the shimmer of the envelope. And all the wonderful goodies on the inside and in the back. Really nicely done! Like the idea of netting as a side pocket. Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Wow!!! I don’t know when I have gotten a more terrific swap... the outside envelope is so gorgeous that gold paper and the delicate flowers just amazing and that postage stamp was just beautiful ... then the contents!! Both envelopes were wonderful both the mushroom themed and the white butterfly... thank you for those extra backgrounds just so generous ... can’t thank you enough for sharing your talent with me!
Response: I’m glad you like it. For some reason I love making envelopes.
Comment: I absolutely love this journal! Its was packed with lovely goodies, thanks so much! I loved the sunset picture and that story of your cousin made me tear up. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it. Its lovely!
Comment: fyi for next time washi bags aren't included!
Response: I do apologize, thanks for letting me know because I believe I have sent a washi bag out before during these series of swaps. I thought it was okay accordingly to the instructions. No problem. Have a Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hi Tonia! Thanks so much for the lovely ATC you sent my way. I'm in love with all the cute layers you used to complete the card, especially the textiles. So well put-together. And please forgive the late rating! I've been so sick and all my received swaps piled high waiting to be rated.
Response: I hope you are feeling better. Merry Christmas!
Comment: It arrived safely!! Thanks for the adorable Christmas folder! I will totally be using this in my junk journal! I love it!!
ps you forgot to sign your page so I penciled in your swap-bot user name at the bottom of the page so that the owner would know who it was from :)
Response: Thank you for penciling in my name...lol.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautifully handmade/decorated journal. I absolutely ♥️ it and will begin using it on January 1. Thank you also for the tuck-ins that you’ve included. I Appreciate the time and energy put into creating this for me.
Comment: This is so lovely, all wrapped in blue with tag, and Bible verse. I am going to wait to open it on Christmas, or Christmas Eve. Thank you so much.
I just love it!! thank you, I cant wait to use the coffee and the mug and the pen and journal. A perfect gift for me.
Comment: Thank you, Thank you for everything. I received everything now. I actually received the week 2 sent Nov. 10th today! The bottom coding from the po looks like it went threw twice and is all jumbled. I wonder if that was the cause. I am so sorry you had resend it because it now showed up. Wow, that took a trip somewhere. Today is the 7th. It must have went around the world. Anyway, thank you for everything. I love the book on tea! The notecards are new to me and love them! All the best!
Response: I’m glad you finally received everything and that you like it. Have a Merry Christmas!
Comment: Wow! Thanks for such a great assortment. I used to get art snacks, I've been passing for some other art subscriptions lately! Those Copics are amazing- I did have to take a whole class on Copics to really like them, before that they were frustrating! I hope mine gets to you soon.
Comment: Hi Tonia and thank you for the very cute embellished holiday bags - love all three but the gold one is really my favorite. And I love that you tucked in some butterflies and an owl for me - so thoughtful! Thank you for a fun swap!
Comment: Thank you Tonia for the cool advent. Love the way you packaged it - very clever. Thank you for joining this swap! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a Wonderful Christmas! take care, darla
Comment: Hi Tonia! Thanks so much for the cute journal cards! I love that they're hand-painted and yours turned our very nicely. I wasted SO MUCH paper completing mine--I couldn't get the hang of it! Anyway . . . we're brave for painting ;+) Love the colors you used and your envelope was really special, too.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty postcard and extras! Unfortunately, the post office had a field day with the envelope, which arrived pretty destroyed. The postcard is OK, thankfully; the extras are bent and messed up. Perhaps it's best to tape the back and sides of the envelope before mailing, as everything goes through the machine (whether marked nonmachinable or not).
Response: Oh No! I do apologize. Sometimes I do tape the envelope with clear packing tape but not always. I also believe it makes a difference depending on which Post Office I mail from. I have noticed lately the one that service my area has been a little slack lately especially since they have remodeled. I'll just make sure I tape up no matter what. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely drawing~ You put so much detail into it, I love it! I will be putting it in my journal :) I also adore the stickers you sent me!! You gave me two sheets, which was so sweet. <3
Comment: My favorite kind of oatmeal is steel cut. In the winter I make a batch on weekends and reheat small portions during the week. I like to put maple syrup on mine! Thank you for the Chunk... Best wishes!
Comment: I just got it and I love it and if you ever want to do private swap with me so we can do just a traveling notebook it would be amazing and got a lot to say will use about 2 pages also to write and also adding goodies to the back .
Comment: Tonia, this little book is ADORABLE! You did such a beautiful job on this! First, I'm in love with pink for Christmas. Did you create the little ornament on the front? It's so cute. Love the tiny washi tucked behind the pink trees and that sweet snowman snowglobe! This is just plain wonderful! Thank you!
Comment: Wow! You sure hit my atc button... first I want to say love the green houndstooth background next I love the clever way you tied elements into such a great cohesive little story.. the desert and the train ride to Eastern Europe ... just so creative and I like using tissue napkins so thanks for a great swap
Response: Lol. I’m glad you like it. It took some brain power. I started off with one idea and then went a whole other route.🤗
Comment: Haha - toughest envelope to open. I thought "is there an envelope in this envelope?" Sure enough! You made me a yellow wrap - so sweet and thoughtful :). Your ATC is sweet and creative too and thanks for all the napkins :)
Response: Lol. I'm glad you eventually opened it. I figured you would be like what in the world. I'm glad you like it.
Comment: thank you for such a wonderful swap. You did not have to include postage to send the bag home for Japan, although that was extremely thoughtful of you. The tags you sent are beautiful too! Thank you so much
Comment: Thank you so much for this beautiful book! I am really enjoying reading through it so far and getting a glimpse into your day-to-day life. I think my favorite photo is the "Sunset Man". Thank you for the incredible amount of time and energy that you put into this!
Comment: Thank you for such a lovely swap, Tonia. So grateful for the beautiful butterfly return addresses. And cute how you decorated the mailer. Makes it so fun. Thanks for joining my swap. Blessings.
Comment: HI Tonia. Weren't these so fun to make? And I love when I can use my sewing machine. Your pockets are just wonderful! Love the music paper you used for them and the pretty embellishments on each. And such a fun bunch of goodies you tucked inside. Thanks so much for a fun swap!
Comment: Oh my goodness Tonia, the butterfly flipbook you made for me is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! I wish I could give you more hearts ♥️ than just one! Thank you soooo much for the beautiful happy mail! 😍
Comment: Thanks for this innovative swap! I am amazed at the detail you were able to get out of the stencil on your pocket. How did you apply the medium, and clean the stencil afterwards? Thanks for putting them in the file folders so they wouldn't get bent. Hugs from your "Big Sister State" of Alaska, Sherry
Response: I used a palette knife and then I wash the stencil with dawn and warm water.
Comment: Thanks bunches for my mystery swap!! The artsy library card with pocket AND the mini file folders are perfect for me to add to my travel journal that I'm taking on my upcoming tour to Egypt, Jordan & The Holy Land...what you've created has definitely made this a fun swap for me!!
Response: Awe I’m glad you like it and have a purpose for it. Have safe travels.
Comment: ...Awesome!! job on this flip...its so pretty and I love all the encouraging scriptures everywhere!! <3....I really like that leather-type cross sticker with the foil in the background...so cool!... and thank you for all the lovely goodies...I liked that you sewed in the little folder...haven't tried that yet...I did bring my machine out to give it a try but ...oh...not this time....lol...maybe next one...I really like this addition to my journal....thanks for making it for me...cheers...
Comment: This package was super extra~ Now I realized I actually love hexagons! I was so happy to see a few hexagonal items and the various art supplies you've sent including colourful stickers, tags, ribbons, beads, and handmade flipbook for use. Thank you Tonia.
Comment: Tonia your pretty papers are just wonderful! This was a really fun project and I love how your's turned out - you had some really pretty napkins to work with which really makes the end result so much nicer. Thank you for a fun swap!
Comment: I got your envelope on Friday (thank you - nice assortment of backgrounds to challenge me!) and got right to work on finishing them on Saturday - but I think I lost the envelope with your address! I'm going to take another look, but can you PM it to me just in case?
Comment: Thank you for the bags! I have signed one of them previously, maybe next time you can double check not to send your partner bags that has already been signed by them. 😊
Response: I do apologize for that. I really do try to make sure to check but I really didn’t have much of a choice. Otherwise I would have sent bags back to the person that started the bag. I didn’t want to start another bag because I already have a few out there that I’ve started in the first round and a few new ones since then because of the same reason...either the person I had already signed it or because I would have been sending to someone that started the bag. I believe Phenyx mentioned that there might be repeats depending on how many people sign up for it. I will send her a message because in this next round #5, I’m faced with the same issue again. I have you and her again and you both have had the bags before. One of them will be a homer. We’ll work through it.😁
Comment: What a beautiful ICAD I just received from you! Your background is wonderful - love the colors and the layers you created. Perfect sentiment and love the two sisters die cut you used. Thanks for a really fun swap!
Comment: Hi Tonia! This ATC is just plain lovely! I'm crazy for the sweet appliques you used and the cute pink stitching--also love that little ecru doily peeking out from behind the birdcage. Such a beautiful, cohesive design. Thanks so much for joining the swap and for sending such a pretty ATC.
Comment: Thank you for your journal. I enjoyed perusing it albeit carefully. Some of the pages where you used a puffy type painting pen were stuck together and had to be gently coaxed apart. Maybe the high temperatures while it traveled glued them shut? Anyway it was nice to read about life in your neighborhood. Thank you for sharing l
Comment: What an adorable envelope flip book! I love it! Your “kindness” theme was so sweet. I love all the great surprises in the pockets you added, too! I’m sure I will be using them. And your own pattern of coin envelope came out perfect! I have the WAMK pocket punch board & the pockets are nothing like yours (which I really like). Thank you for such a great swap! ❤️
Comment: I love the envelope of texture! ANd the envelopes you included are the most beautiful I have ever seen. You take great pics, the clouds entranced me the most. The flowers are so pretty and thanks for the tape!
Comment: Terrific Tonia! These Two envies were so awesome to receive, thank you! I received the first one with postcards last week, and today was the envies! These are fabulous too - you're a great envie-artist! Love the variety of styles and sizes too! I feel lucky to have these and will be using them very stingily! LOL! Thanks for sharing them with lil ol' me! You're the best!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful puzzle piece. The background is super cool. I am really enjoying this puzzle collaboration swap and can't wait to see the completed puzzle from all my creative partners. See you in the swaps again soon! 😀
Comment: I received both postcards per your message. I will send the one home in the next day or two. Thank you so much for the pretty birthday card you enclosed for me! ❤ That was a really nice surprise and easy so thoughtful of you. 😊💙🌸
Comment: Oh they are SOOOO adorable. Thank you for the envelopes and the chia tea. I have been making iced tea with all the tea bags. Doesnt iced chai sound refreshing?
Response: Mmm good! I just had some tonight from Starbucks but it was warm. Next time I’ll try it iced. I get mine with Almond milk when I get it from Starbucks. Tomorrow maybe I’ll make some iced Chai tea.
Comment: Omg Tonia , You really outdid yourself with this swap..!! I LOVE the watercolor postcards... It was extra amazing.. I have never seen or heard of them before and the ampersand is just my style ... Thank you sooooooo much :)
Response: I’m glad you liked it. Have a great weekend!
Comment: I am so much a fan of zettiology now that I by mistake thought I had joined a zentangle swap. Lol I didnt have a clue but I learned and it has turned out to be 1 of the coolest swaps ever I love what you sent me too cool. Thank you so much. I am going to keep my eye out for more of these I think
Comment: Thanks for the selection found a couple keepers. I absolutely love the one you made for me.I like texture and the net
No we did not Watermelon Jubilee at all. too dsng jot and humid. Didn't even see the parade. This old lady just can't take the heat.
Comment: Hi Tonia! Wow...this is such a pretty ICAD! Love all the glittering elements, the tiny doily and that sweet butterfy. Also love the quote, part of, 'Be the change you wish to see in the world.' That one's always been one of my favorites. I can tell how much work you put in on this and I thank you for making something special for me! p.s. Thank you for the neat origami papers!
Comment: Don't forget those plain circle stickers! They can be a "background" so you can slap another sticker a little off to the side on them and make and make an accent of them! =) I love doing that on my planner! =D
Comment: Wow!! Both pages are amazing!! I love the feel of the pages - gelli printing just adds so much to the texture of paper! Both pages are so different and yet so gorgeous - thank you for spoiling me!!
Comment: Great puzzle piece! (I am glad you taped it in because the entire bottom of the envelope was open.) Thank you! :)
Response: Oh No! I’m glad I did too. Normally I put packing tape on all my non machinable mail but I guess I didn’t that time. I wonder what is actually done to mail between the time we drop it off and the time the person gets it, I received some swap mail last week that was partially opened. 😲
Comment: A beautifully created card! Reminds me of my daughter! I cannot imagine a more perfect card for this swap! Love all the gears that cute sun in cloud! And the tags I will use one today in a swap! Thanks for everything
Response: I’m glad you liked it. I like making ATCs. When you get a chance may you take a picture of it and send it to me? I forgot to take a picture of it. Thanks a bunch! I’ll send you my email.
Comment: Thanks for the sticker bags, Tonia! I'm a bit confused by the air mail stickers bag, because most of the "stickers" in it are just print-outs... but okay :D I'll pass it on regardless!! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you SO SO much for the beautiful envelopes! I loved each and every one of them, especially the bonus tiny ones! You’ve made such happy little envelopes and I can’t wait to share that feelings with others as I go using them. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for sending stamps.
BUT, when you cut out the stamps, PLEASE take more paper around the stamps. Now you send me damaged stamps.
Response: Hello AnneliesV, I will pm you to get clarification on what you meant. In your comment did you mean to say leave more paper around the stamp? A lot of the stamps I sent in this swap were from other swaps. I just want clarification because I’ve never received any complaints in the past. Thanks a bunch!
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC. luv the texture and color combo. I guess we better start albums just for each other's ATC s. lol Thanks for the offer of back grounds but I am doing the same thing.
in the summer I make and mount backgrounds and make extra atcs.thanx tho'
Comment: That's a lovely, clever piece you made - I like the colors of the teal on the native envie color. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by this supply, but your piece is inspiring. Thank you.
Response: LOL, I think we all were a little stump by what the supply was. I sent a message thinking something was missing. After finding out that the banker coin envelope was the supply I got my brain a turning to come up with something creative. It was fun! I'm hoping to do another swap like that one again.
Comment: Thank you so much! I LOVE the samples you sent! Thank you, thank you,thank you! I'm especially excited about the ATC stuff you sent! I've never made one before, but when I do, the pouch you sent will be its new home! <3
Comment: Received the other seeds today. Thank you so much. Esp. for being honest. honesty and kindness goes a long way, right? Thank you for the extra pack. I can't wait to start my garden. Which will be may 13th, after frost is all gone. Where do you get recycled paper? Thank you for the piece on Of Te Earth. I enjoyed it !
Response: Yes, it does. I’ve been waiting to plant too so I bought some seed starter pots to get my seeds going. I get the seeded paper off of Amazon. Take Care!
Comment: Thanks for the sticker bags and origami paper! Wait until you see the pattern on the envelope I sent. heehee! You'll want to check the signers on your sticker bags in the future because I already signed 1 of them.
Response: Hi, now you have me in suspense. Lol. I will double check the next time to be sure. Most times I go on and take and add to and prepare the bags for the next round then just wait to see who to send to. For future reference, if I’m assigned to a partner who has already had the bag, do I just start a new bag and then wait to send the other bag in another round? This has happened to me in another Swap where I had received the same item twice. I guess that will have to be a question that I ask the coordinator whenever it occurs. Have a great evening! I can’t wait to see the envelope.
Comment: LOL! What a great card, I just love it. I thought I was funny putting a pumpkin seed on my first one, but yours is the best, thank you. :D
Response: 😝 I was hoping you liked it. I had quite a few things on my craft space. I thought those things that I added would be the most fun. The dum dum came front my Art Snack box that I subscribe to every month. The mint was from a bag of soft mints I bought from Hobby Lobby and there was one left on my craft desk.
Comment: Thanks, I love all the glittery elements you added! I hadn't considered a gift and bow idea. The ribbon, sticker strips and gold embellishments are fun extras.Have a sparkly rest of your week!
Comment: Thank you for the amazing cards. The capitol building I believe is the Nation - Washington DC reprint - which is great! Have never seen a magnetic Large letter card before like the North Carolina you sent. Love it!!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely swap. I’m like you are, it’s so cool to see what other people have and love to share! I am alway so amazed at how many different washi tapes there are. BTW I don’t have any of the washi you sent. Thanks again😊
Comment: Oh my! This ATC really makes me happy! I love it! Thank you so much for adding this bit of whimsical soul to my life - and thank you also for the starter kit. What a cool idea! Wonderful swap!
Comment: Lovely postcard. I have joined the next round in April so will pass along. Thank-you so much for the Georgia car decal. I did not have that one, i so appreciate you looking at my profile. I am so happy to get this. Your swap is awesome.
Response: Well, I’m glad I sent that one. I almost sent a different decal...S.O.B South Of The Border...South Carolina.😀
Comment: Dear Tonia, thank you very much for your lovely envelope full with happiness. Such a colorful envelope. Also the goodies. Thank you it really made me happy to recieve it! thanks for join my swap, love Jill
Comment: Thanks for your fab pop Tarts box-pc, they're yummy ♡ In Finland the Cinnamon rolls are probably most common sweet pastry. Sweet stuff isn't a thing for breakfast really in here, kids might have chocolate cereal or put some marmalade on toast ;) Cheers!
Comment: OMG Tonia, your birdcage ATC came out adorable, thanks so much for making it for me. Also, what a wonderful surprise sending me a extra one to make, so thoughtful. Have a great day today, AnnaL.
Comment: HoWdY neighbor did you realize you sent to someone JUST north of you???? I really like the "transformation" ATC love the added silver butterfly ......and I love also the "started" cards....great backgrounds... and the washi..... GREAT swap..... and my partner was just a bit more north in McKinney..... all of us close to Dallas gals. Thanks for a great swap!!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely decorated envelope and note cards! I have lived in Houston since I was 3 months old. My parents were from the south but had gone to Michigan for jobs. I was born there but they heard of work in Texas which was warmer so they packed me up and we were off to Houston. I've been here ever since. I love Texas!
Comment: Beautiful artwork!!! After working this long week I really really wish this bottle of wine was real! Thank you so much!!! Raeford is right down the street from where I work! It’s a small world!
Comment: I finally received this swap on Sat. Don't know why it took so long to get here. I like your PC a lot and it is an interesting base for a collaboration.
Response: Maybe because of the weather in certain areas. I believe I saw posted on the Postal service website that mail is delayed in certain areas due to all the snow and ice. So, maybe that's the case. I have been receiving mail late too.
Comment: Wow, this is the USPS at its worst! I see this is postmarked Dec 27, and I JUST got it TODAY! This is why I wait a long time before worrying if something is "missing." Anyway, thank you very much for your lovely Christmas letter. I hope your 2019 is going well so far!
Response: IKR...lol. I had to contact someone to let them know why I hadn’t rated them. Waiting on the postal system. I’m still receiving stuff from mid December. I hope you have a great New New Year too.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Christmas card! I am doing what I want to do: relax! I have 3 days off, and I am only spending a few of those hours with family, the rest of the time is me time. Happy 2019!
Comment: Hi Tonia! Thank you so much for your Christmas Movie List! I actually haven't seen a lot you've mentioned, so I can't wait to start watching them! I hope you have a very lovely Christmas and a Happy 2019!
Comment: I love this package. The beautiful ATC's, The washi ornaments are amazing! thanks for the extras too. Did you make the blue one? Is it shrinky dinks? Thanks a million for all the goodies. Happy Holidays
Response: No problem! I’m glad you like it. The washi ornaments was like a last minute idea because I was experimenting with toner sheets. Yes, I made the blue one with Shrinky Dink. I shouldn’t have never discovered that stuff...lol. I call it baked art. Happy Holidays to you too!
