Comment: There's so many things to like about this zine packet. The big beautiful hand-carved sticker extras. Your swap-bot business card, I like that idea. The excellent zine--great colours, images and format. It's nice that your printer wasn't cooperating. 😉 ☺️
Response: Thank you so much! So happy you enjoyed everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I LOVED getting this in the mail! It’s so awesome! I love the clean lines of the face, the quote and the subtle sparkle of the hair! 🖤 The clear cellophane envelope as protection was super cool. Thank you for putting so much love in to this!
Comment: Wow! this is a great idea. I think you were right to send it in an envelope. I sent a naked PC for this round and it never got there at all. Will be resending something different.Thanks so much for your creative artwork.
Comment: Thanks for passing along the art journal! I like your stripes piece a lot. Isn't this the best swap? Endlessly interesting and inspirational. I love it.
Response: Yay! It arrived quickly! Thank you for saying that about my piece! I am never 100% confident with any of my creations! And yes! I love the endless inspiration and seeing so many different styles!
Comment: Thank you!! My first thought was - I LOVE this card, I wonder if she bought it or made it. Then you answered that when you said you used the stamp as a template. Looks like the poppies I should have in about a month! I love, love the ATC! So detailed and artistic! Inspires me want to do create another batch and try something that detailed.
Response: Aww! You are so kind! Thank you so much! I'm sure your actual poppies will be much nicer! LOL! I may try another batch and use stencils! :-)
Comment: Wow wow wow your carving is amazing! Your prints are so precise and clear; I am inspired! I am a big Julie fan (when we lived in NY I took classes at the Ink Pad with her :) and I will now be looking up Sarah Matthews on your recommendation! Fun swap.
Response: Thank you so much! And thank you for the heart! I really enjoyed putting this swap together and am so happy you enjoyed everything. I think you will be just as inspired by Sarah!
Comment: Thanks for this gorgeous postcard! I love it! The stamp from Israel is a wonderful touch! The texture reminds me of real honeycomb, just out of the hive. Getting warmer here! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thank you so much Sherry! I'm glad you love it! Thank you for the heart! Stay safe and healthy too!
Comment: THANK YOU for this wonderful postcard! I absolutely LOVE what you did with the black bird rising out of the "sea of pens & feathers!" Rain King is one of my all-time favorite songs - it just makes me happy every time I hear it! I have 4 versions of it on my iPod - 1 of the live versions is a slower tempo and just as moving.
Response: You are SO welcome!! I'm super happy that you love the postcard!! I definitely will seek out the live versions! Totally interested in hearing them! Thank you for the heart!!
Comment: Thankyou so much for your gorgeous card! I am keeping it - something I do with all the handmade cards I am sent or given - as I find that they inspire my own card making! Besides, they are so pretty that I really cannot bear to part with them! Loved your decorated envie, too (something I am not so good at) and the Christmas tree stickers. Have a lovely Christmas and thankyou for making my day! Tracy
Response: You are so very welcome! I'm so happy that you love it all!! Just keep making and eventually, you will like something you create! We are our own worse critics!! Merry Christmas!
Comment: This is so cute! And thanks for the goodies :) I like how the Posca paint markers look, I may have to get some! Who is the chef?
Response: You should totally get some Posca paint markers! (I've participated in 2 posca paint parties on Zoom that are free and so FUN!) The chef is Chef Earl Ninsom from the Thai restaurant, Paadee. They didn't mention who was next to him.
Comment: Love the postcard and definitely not tired of the partner. I love your take on the challenges. And I will be honest, I can’t stand the pumpkin spice craze, lol. I love pie but everything else throws off my senses and ends up confusing my brain, if that makes sense. 😂
Response: I totally get it! I like pumpkin pie too and my friend always makes me this delicious pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling! YUM! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Wowzah! This. Is. Awesome! Thank you for sharing your wonderful fish! Save one piece of the orange coral/seaweed at the bottom, it did survive the snail mail journey to me! Now, I am proudly displaying it with my other favorites on the craftroom wall!!!
Response: Yay! You are so welcome! So happy it made it (mostly!) LOL I'm so happy you like it! What an honor to be on your wall! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for sharing! I have been super interested in Myers-Briggs for years myself so I'm glad you enjoyed this swap just like I did. Thank you for the stickers too, they're so cute! I did close my storenvy shop and forgot to say so in my bio, whoops! Anyway thanks again.
Response: You're welcome! Thanks for the heart! If you decide to reopen your shop, let me know! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I loved the postcard! It made me laugh out loud! I totally second guessed what I sent out too. I sent G rated pin up girls and I still thought it was too much! We should swap PCs, take care, Aurora
Response: Yay! Glad you enjoyed the pc! That was one of the more tamer ones too! I have more risque ones in that same series! Thanks for the heart! Happy to swap PCs!
Comment: Thank you for the fun space pc! I live in a rural area, but we still have some light pollution. But there is a place nearby where we go sometimes where the night sky is so clear that the number of stars will take your breath away.
Response: You're welcome! Oooh! How cool to have a spot to go to to see the stars!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi Lisa, thank you for the lovely letter! And yes, I am a Texas native c: I've been to NYC once, more than a decade ago but remember really liking Brooklyn. I hope you and your family are staying safe!
Response: You're welcome! Glad you enjoyed the mail. We are staying safe! Hope you are too. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi! Thank you for considering my artistic interests. And wow, you actually checked out my IG! I haven't been the best with posting all the stuff I send out, but I do use it to keep track too! Also that "thank you mail carrier" sticker is cute! Where did you get it from?
Response: You are welcome! I got the sticker from an Etsy shop called JJkun. She's got lots of cute stickers!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I adore this card--thank you! I love Wilco! We had to give up DMB, Jimmy Buffett, Dead and Co. and Phish this summer :(
We've been taking advantage of all the weekly streams of past live shows.
Response: Ooh yay! Glad you liked the card! You are welcome! I look forward to when we can go see live shows again! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I also sent cardboard pc!! Mine was not as cute as urs though lol. Loved your drawing!! Working has been a challenge. 13 days straight was not the best idea i had. ( trying to get ot while they was offered it)
Response: So glad you enjoyed the postcard! I wish I could take credit for the drawing! I just colored it! Thanks for the rating and heart. I hope you don't have to do more 13 days straight of work often!
Comment: Thank you! This is one of the coolest cards I’ve ever gotten! I’ve definitely had some strange encounters in my hometown. A lot of just feeling someone standing behind you or seeing things in the corner of your eye.
Response: Awesome! So happy you liked the card! Thanks for the heart. I can't imagine having that feeling on a regular basis!!
Comment: First of this is one of the best postcards I've ever seen! It's going up on my locker at work. Second I NEEEEED that Your Vote Is Your Voice washi tape. Where ever did you get it. Last I have participated in Gishwhes, now Gish for the last seven years. It's definitely a fun experience. I've met some of my best friends because of it.
Response: Yay! I’m so happy you enjoyed the postcard! Thank you so much for the heart! The washi is from an Etsy shop called Mary Likes Postcards. She’s got some great stuff on there! She also has an amazon shop but not sure if the washi is on there.
Comment: Wow! Let's go to the circus! This mail art envie is absolutely amazing. Did you draw those characters? If so, kudos to your drawing skills. If not, they're still amazing. It's a win/win! Really cute and so festive. Thank you so much for the envie and the sweet enclosures--tickets to the circus! haha...such fun.
Response: YAY! So happy you enjoyed my envelope. It was so fun to make! I did not draw the characters, they are rubber stamps. I wish I could draw that! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Lisa, this is fabulous! The detail in the spots, grasses & tree line are awesome. I think you should sign up for more postage stamp art! I am glad to be the recipient of your first postage stamp swap.
Response: I'm so happy you like it!! I will try my hand at more of them. I do feel like I cheated a little as the giraffe was a relatively simple one! Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: What a gorgeous puzzle piece! Thanks so much! I love it. I could swear I'd replied to you. I'm so sorry. Did not mean to worry you. I've been trying to do better with plants. I have planted vegetables! And I'm even already reaping the rewards from my lettuce! SO nice to go outside and be able to pick my own. It's surprising me that I've kept it going. We'll see how the tomatoes, squash, and sweet potatoes do. Fingers crossed! Thanks again for the piece in my favorite colors!
Response: You are so welcome! Thank you for the heart! Thanks for your patience and no worries about the reply! I did get your last one! Cheers!
Comment: I appreciate you reading my profile for the puzzle piece. I like the colors and the moon. I had assumed the moon would glow in the dark but it was so cool to see the stars glow in the dark instead. I also like the postcard you included (I want to visit New Zealand some day). Thank you for a great swap!
Response: You are so welcome! I'm so happy you enjoy it! Thank you for the heart! (Also would love to visit New Zealand one day!)
Comment: Your strawberry-eating ink-blot monster made me laugh out loud, Lisa. Hope it had the same effect on postal employees who may have seen it en route! This was a fun exercise, but I think I'll stick to collage!
Response: Yay! So happy you liked it! My daughter read the back and mentioned I wrote it a little confusing. It already was on the way to the mailbox via my hubby and I had forgotten to take a photo of it (I try to remember with everything I send out!) So anyway, I'm glad it was confusing! Yes, this was fun but I understand! I'll stick to my rubber stamps and such! LOL thank you for the heart!
Comment: Lisa...you and your friends really know how to party...LOL. Your card was cute and I really enjoyed reading your letter. My cousin just flew out here from Binghamton, NY to take her mother back for the holidays. I'll be flying back there around February/March to bring her back home. Happy Holidays.
Response: LOL! Glad you enjoyed my mailing! Happy Holidays! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi Lisa! Thank you for the really cute card and the very newsy letter to fulfill this swap! I loved reading about your textile adventures; I wish I could knit or crochet but I can't do either. I remember craftsy! Please let me know how that goes. Hope you have a wonderful and fulfilling 2020 and that we'll get to swap together again soon!
Response: Thank you so much! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I can't tell you how excited I was to see you'd put a tiger on this piece! And you did a wonderful job, too! I absolutely love it! I don't think I've had that big a smile after opening a swap for a long time. Thank you!
Response: yay!! So happy you love it! It was so much fun to create! Thank you for the heart and rating!
Comment: Hi Lisa~!
Wow . . . did you draw this? It is amazing! I'm really impressed. I do really miss Penny Dreadful and wonder why they didn't do another season. Thank you so much for this lovely card to add to my collection.
Response: Oh gosh, no! I wish! She's a digital stamp that I colored with copic markers! I'm pretty happy with how I colored her so I see it as a compliment! I'm so happy you like it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Love the postcard, my other partner actually sent me the same Amy Schumer quote haha!
Response: HA! I guess great minds think alike! Sorry you had to get the same quote tho! Here's another one by RBG! "Women belong in all places where decisions are being made, it shouldn't be that women are the exception."
Comment: How clever you are. I used to paint with oils, but has been years so I ventured to trying the markers too, I tell you it is different, but it brought out the urge to paint again, lol my first bird looked like a turkey vulture, instead of a wren, ha ha, second try was better, fun even! Thank you, I am putting it in little frame in my sewing room, I spend a lot of the in there. Very nice. Keep it up, you are on the right track.
Response: Thank you so much! It means so much that you will be hanging it up! Your words are so kind! I will try to keep it up but I just want to do everything! Thank you for the heart! Will you go back to painting?
Comment: Lisa, I love the postcard you created for me! The colors, the layout, the different techniques you used, and especially the subject matter of bees earns this one a place in my album of 'favorite' postcards! What did you use to make the bee so glossy? It definitely added special pizzazz to it. Thank you for the wonderful creative energy you put into this swap!
Response: Yay! So happy you love it! I'm honored that it will live among your favorite postcards! I used glossy accents or 3D crystal lacquer for the bees (I interchange between the two so can't be sure which one but they both work the same!) Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for this wonderful starry PC! The colors are so deep and the "milky way" is spectacular. I can just imagine being that space woman up in the deep dark of space surrounded by the stars. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are so welcome! I really liked that one too! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome decorated envelope. I love your drawings!! The stickers you enclosed were sooo cute & you did a great job on the handmade card as well. Thank you for the great swap & Happy Easter!!
Response: Yay! So happy you loved it! It was such fun to create. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful Manhattan Skyline Shaker! I can see why you never tire of the view. 1/3 of the frame was torn off by the USPO, but I was able to reattach the remaining 2/3 piece. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Eek!! I'm so sorry it came like that but happy that you like it! I think I'll start putting them in a clear envelope like how you send yours! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Love your envelope art... I can't wait to spend time outside without it hurting! The resin pieces are cool, hmm what will I use them for..? I will add them to my box of bits and obs and see what happens!
Response: Yay! I'm sure you will doing something fab with the resin pieces. Happy you enjoyed the envelope art! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I'm rating you now, but I'm saving the package to open on my birthday which is March 14th. I love the pink bubble envelope you sent it in. It made my soul smile!
Response: Yay! Good luck with waiting! My daughter's birthday is 3 days before yours and I'm having her wait too. She's going to be 12 so her patience is probably not as good as yours! Thank you for the heart. I hope you enjoy the present!
Comment: This made my daughter’s day! She loves the squishy - a yellow cow, and the octopus suprizemal was the perfect addition to her collection! Her little brothers were jealous and now want to swap as well!
Response: LOL! That's how Sienna wanted to swap, seeing all my swaps and mail! We're so glad she is happy with her blind bags!
Comment: OMG! This was SO stinkin’ cute, it actually made me giggle to get it. Thank you so much. And no, I’m avoiding Cupid at the moment. If he tried to shoot me, I’m shooting him right back in the face. ;)
Response: LOL I'm sure there are plenty of people that want to be shot by Cupid so he won't mind keeping his arrows from you! So glad my card made you giggle! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for this gorgeous PC! At first, I couldn't see the green, but then I did, and though subtle, it is beautiful! This one is going up on my inspiration wall. Happy New Year with hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: What an honor to be on your inspiration wall! So glad you enjoy it! Thank you so much! And thank you for the heart!
Comment: Really like how you put this together. The embossed 2019 with fireworks were a great, festive touch. Thank you for the work you put into it. Happy New Years!
Response: Yay! So happy you like it! I was feeling a bit guilty as the description mentioned not waiting until the last minute to start, which is exactly what I do! LOL Thanks for the heart! Happy New Year!
Comment: Sophia tore into the socks.🤪 I am assuming the card was there and now stashed under her bed with the rest of her swaps. 🤩 Have a Happy New Year! More group fun starting soon for 2019. Thank for joining us!!!
Response: Yay! Thank you for creating this group! Sienna is super happy! I'm so happy she likes the socks! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Omg. So we have rec’d today in perfect time to open our swap bot stockings! We love them. I took a picture bc she immediately put them on!! I hope you get yours today!! Thank you for joining our group and you guys have been amazing!!! 🌲🎁🌲💕💕💕 Love and cant wait till after church and the party we are heading to bc I will be rocking the gnomes for sure.
Response: Yay! I'm sure you super rocked the gnomes! Happy New Year and thank you for the heart!
Comment: I have TWO boxes, so exciting!! When I was younger I had contests with my little brother about who could get the most presents. We always had a running total going to the big day—your boxes would’ve put me over the top if we were still counting! Love to you and Sienna!! ❤️
Comment: Lovely card! I oohed and aahed over it when opened it! Thank you soooo much! Thanks also for the Christmas washi! Whooo!
I did look up Dyker Heights! Oh, my goodness! You weren't kidding! Beautiful! Stunning! Whoa! I see why you go before the crowds! Yeow!
Comment: All 3 sound super interesting, & are on my priority TBR (I didn't even know I had one!!) Suspense is my staple, but I do like fiction, & memoirs have been surprisingly interesting! I just LURVVVVVE the large stamp on the front of the envelope! (& how have you done this background?)
Response: Ooh, the background is made from gelatos! I use gesso on junk mail envelopes and use gelatos to color on them. Fun and easy way to do backgrounds!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Love this one and so excited to hang it with my other glow in the dark treasures. I have a wire strung in my art room and the witch has been added! These are so cool when the sun sets and my art room comes alive! Many thanks! Hugs, Mona
Response: You got that so fast! I'm so glad you love it! You are so welcome! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I officially relent. I WILL be in New York City one of these days. Years. I've been watching old Law & Order, the kind before the alphabet soup versions, and I MUST go. My daughter has a picture of herself on the court steps in Manhattan that they are always standing on, and I must get a pic of me there, too. Also, I love your letter and will write back, though give me a week or two as things are a bit crazy. Thank you so much! LOVE the envelope!!!!
Response: Score for NYC! LOL! Glad you enjoyed my letter. Write when you can! Your letter will always be welcomed! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Lisa, one heart is just NOT ENOUGH. I wish I could give you so much more. This is one of the most thoughtful swaps I have ever received. I see all the effort you put into it and I'm just floored! Had a really rough last few months because we've been preparing for Pride. This was just such a gift to open. Thank you so, so, so, so much!🌈💖
Response: Yay! You are so welcome! I'm super happy you loved everything! I had a fun time creating everything for you! Thank you for recognizing the effort!! Thank you for rating and the heart!
Comment: I read your answers to the questions you chose with great interest, Lisa. Most were ones I answered as well, so it was neat to see your take on those situations. :-) Thank you so much for sharing! :-) <3
Response: You are welcome! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: This book is still haunting my days. I am glad we could all read it and talk about it. Glad to read your answers. We had very similar answers and questions. I am not sure I will want to watch this on HBO.
Response: Hopefully it won't haunt your days for too much longer! Thanks for rating!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your responses to the questions. You are not alone in not figuring out "who done it." It took me totally by surprise--he wasn't even brought into the story until late in the novel, so we didn't know enough about him until really fast at the end!
Comment: Hi Lisa . . .
I very much enjoyed your review of 'The Dry.' I think it's great when your opinion agrees with another reviewer AND great when your opinions differ because it gies you a different way of thinking about a story. I was also completely surprised by the identity of the killer! Thanks for joining the swap and for your thoughtful review.
Response: You are so welcome! I'm happy you enjoyed reading my answers! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for your answers to some of the questions, Lisa! I don't think you were daft for not figuring out who the killer was until Falk named the killer. . . Because I didn't figure it out until then, either! :-) Thank you for sharing! <3
Response: Oh good! Glad I wasn't the only one! Thank you for the heart!
I dont know where this travelled to but it just came today. Beat up and bruised on the outside but quite lovely on the inside.
Love the bookmark and your list!
Thank you so very much!❤️❤️❤️
Response: I guess it took the scenic route! LOL! I'm glad it finally made it though and that you enjoyed it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Oh wow! I love the envelope you made me. You did great on the killer whale!!!! I showed it to my whole family & they were impressed too. Of course this is going into my "save" box so I can keep it forever :) Thanks for joining all my swaps & for being a great partner :)
Response: Yay! So happy you love the envelope! I enjoy these swaps so much! Thank you for hosting them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I really loved the card and beautifully stamped envelope! I don't read much YA anymore but I did read something by Libba Bray a few years back. Thanks again!
Response: Well, shoot! I forgot to take a photo of what I sent you and now I can't remember what I sent (which is why I always try to take a photo of what I've sent! LOL) but I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Lisa, please excuse this late rating. . . I thought I had rated right away, but in my excitement of putting on my "wall of fame" (I LOVE IT!!!) I must have overlooked rating. Thanks for such a cheerful sparkly postcard!!!!
Response: No worries! You are so very welcome! I'm so happy you love the pc! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome letter and stationery extras! We have a lot in common it seems, I would love to mail you back when I get the spare chance! And it’s too funny a coicindence, but I just saw “A Quiet Place” today before reading your letter haha — It was a great movie. Hope your husband is healing up and that the rest of your family is doing well :)
Response: You are so welcome! I would love to hear back from you when you get the chance. I'm glad you enjoyed everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I loved your letter especially the paper! I know of Jason Momoa. I'm just going to start GOT soon too. I had to wait until I could borrow the DVDs. Thanks for sharing with me. Have a great Write-on!
Response: You are welcome! Glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for the heart! You are in for a wild ride once you start GOT!
Comment: OMG...I loved your mail art!! The painting on the front was incredible...I love the mushrooms & the clouds. The rat stamps were awesome too, plus I got 2 holidays...woo-hoo! Thanks so much for the stickers too. I really enjoyed having you as my partner. Thanks for joining my swap & take care!
Response: Yay! I have to say, that envie was one of my faves and I was really happy with how it turned out! Glad you loved it too!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for such a cute medal & I love that velcro option! The #1 Ghost Hunter is a real hit with me, ha,,ha! I never want to get out of bed to be honest, but we have to be "adults" don't we.Thanks for the fun swap.
Response: You're welcome! I had such fun making it! I'm so glad you like it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi Lisa! Thanks so much for the awesome pc and for answering the question! I think I have read the Good Daughter as I like Karen Slaughter's books - hmmm. Thanks for the fun Happy Mail! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: You're welcome! I really liked that book, I may have to look into more Karen Slaughter books! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the informative reviews. This is one of the few times I've read some of the books as my partner, which gives me more confidence to try the others you've read. (My youngest son and I enjoyed "Auggie and Me" as a bedtime read-aloud in 2016. You and your daughter might find it interesting.)
Response: I'm so glad you liked reading my reviews! We're currently reading Rebel Girls bedtime stories #2 at bedtime. She enjoyed the 1st one so much. I wouldn't mind trying Auggie and Me! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Yay! It's so fun getting presents! The animals wrapping paper is uber cute! And these are going right under my white tree until Christmas!
Edit December 25: Yay! Sepia pens! I don't know why I love the idea of these so much, but I can't wait to use them!! I haven't tried the brush pens before either, so I'm looking forawrd to giving that one a try. And I'm so excited about the Dylusions paints! The colors are awesome!!! I've never used them before, and now that it's quiet I'm going to go peruse YouTube for some ideas! :) Thank you so much!! :)
Response: I can't wait for you to open them! Merry Christmas! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: LISA!! So happy to hear from you! I hope you and Sienna are well. Zora is flourishing, learning something new or making and making new silly faces all the time. I'm just getting back to Maine after working an extended season but if you're up for a private swap, I'm game. I've collected a few goodies for you here and there! I hope you're enjoying the Christmas season. Thank you for what I'm sure is an awesome present!! Hugs!!
Response: YAY ERIN!! I can't wait for you to open your goodies! Me and Sienna will surely miss being spoiled by you this year! I'm always up for a private swap!! Zora sounds adorable!! Merry Christmas!! oxox
Comment: Love your pc, Lisa! You did a great job with your Copics! Love the deer and the muchrooms! And you must have used super -super glue because everything stayed in place! Thank you for such a sweet swap!
Response: Yay! So glad it arrived safely! I have to tell you, I was very close to keeping that one! :-) Happy you love it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Lisa my dear thank you so very much for the Flying Monkeys!, yes I can see them...thank you for such a great PC and for sending it in an envelope. I put your pc in my craft room cork board, I can see it every time I walk in :)
Have a wonderful Christmas Season!
Response: Yay! So happy this one made it! Thanks for the heart. Merry Christmas!
Comment: OMG OMG OMG not only did you make this package absolutely GORGEOUS but you filled it with Edward Gorey goodies! I feel like it's my birthday and Christmas all in one! Thank you so, so much! I love it...just over the moon!
Response: YAY! So happy you enjoyed everything! You are so very welcome!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you! What a cute decorated envelope! I'm so excited about these swaps:) I have a white Christmas tree that I'm collecting all the envelopes on until December. What fun! Update Dec 3 - the stickers are so cute! All my favorite animals :) thank you!
Response: You're welcome! I hope you enjoy the inside just as much! :-) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: This was quite possibly one of my favorite swaps to receive ever! The envelope was gorgeous! And that shaker card is so awesome. Then the flipbook with the letter and goodies!!! Amazing. Thank you so much :)
Response: Wooohooo! What a compliment! So glad you love it and that it made it to you in one piece!! (I cringed when the postal clerk put that big whopping postage on my envie!) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you! The white pc card does looks like a very involved process...and I love the little green tinge and few sparkles from the tissue. This is a favorite and inspires me to get out the paste again. Smiles!
Response: So happy you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for the heart! The pc was fun to do and I'm glad I challenged myself!
Comment: ðŸ–¤ ðŸ•·ï¸ ðŸŽƒ ðŸ•·ï¸ ðŸ–¤
I love it! I sent my partner a spider as well. Too funny! Thank you for such an awesome postcard! Very well done and I'm impressed that you stamped it and then cut around including the frame, very thought out. The background and spider/spider web "sequins" are both really creative touches. Thank you again!
Response: You are welcome! So happy you enjoyed it and that it made it to you intact! I hadn't planned on cutting around the spider and making a frame! It just worked out that way! I lucked out! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the letter. I'll be writing back shortly. PS. I love the Silverball Museum. I live about 5 minutes from it and had my 30th birthday there like the giant child I am inside. Pinball and booze.. I mean.. how could you not? lol.
Response: Yay! Looking forward to it! And man, if I lived 5 minutes away from Silverball, I would GO ALL THE TIME!! And hell, yeah have my birthday there!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the funny snake charmer you created. The herpetologist I worked with in India was recently here in Florida with a couple of aboriginal tribals & I got to go wit them on a hunt for the pythons that are breeding in the Everglades.
Response: Wow! That sounds very exciting! I'm glad you enjoyed my card. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: hi! thank you so much for your lovely swap. I can only say you have a lot of patience to write such a long letter about the books you have read, and twice! you have my admiration.thank you for the nice reading list :D oh,and I love what you did with the envelope.
Response: Heh heh, I learned my lesson and typed the 2nd letter! :-) Glad you enjoyed my letter and my envelope! Thank you for the heart
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter and the awesome envelope! I too love decorating envelopes but I have never tried painting it like you did ! Boy do I envy your stamps!! Anyways I will be writing aback soon!!
Response: Great! Looking forward to your response! So happy you enjoyed everything. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: We've practically become pen-pals! Thank you for the wild purple ostriches (ostrichi?) though I must say, they never looked too huggable to me. I did a newspaper story on an ostrich farm once & they chased me all around the field!
Response: HAHA Yes! I'm glad you're not tired of my postcards! Glad you enjoyed the ostriches/ostichi. They don't look very huggable, that's why I had to pair the sentiment with them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi Lisa! Loved your sweet note and hearing about your daughter--it made me misty for the time when my kids were young. Thanks for the cute 'Summer' notecard--did you draw this? and all the cute little bits and bobs.
Response: You are so welcome! It's a rubber stamp! I wish I can draw so well! I know I will be in your shoes (misty for when my daughter was young) very soon, in fact, I do get like that now even though she's just 10! :-) Happy summer!
Comment: I love the postcard you made, thank you so much! You did a great job on the blue box also and I love the gradation of colors and the letter stamps. Stamping the stamps was very clever and the snail mail stamp!
Response: You are very welcome! So happy you loved it as much as I did. It came out just as I was picturing it in my head and that does not happen very often! Thank you for the heart!
I love your background papers! I have plans for two of them already and I just opened them 30 minutes ago!! I had fun with this swap too. I did a few on a shiny silver paper just to "test" and they came out cool too! Thanks for joining! xo
Response: Yay! So glad you love them! Thanks for hosting such a fun swap!! (And thanks for the squished penny! My daughter ran off with it as soon as I opened the envelope! Hrmph!)
Comment: Your card came yesterday and we were so busy! I love all the possibilities for rainbow art...seems they go with almost everything...Love the bright colors the sentiment and the swinging girl so much! Thanks for the very good reminder! We have had some surprisingly hot days as well... nothing like your summer days, but whew!
Response: Yay! So happy you enjoy the pc! Thanks so much for the rating and heart. Yes, those hot days are creative energy zappers! They say it's gonna be extra hot this year. Oh yay (not the sarcasm!)
Comment: Wow, this swap was definately worth the wait. I love the mailart on the envie, your letter and all the extra's!!! The envie was a little torn when it arrived so I am not sure everything made it to my house (I read something about washi) but there still was so much inside! Love it, Thank you! Have a great weekend! Groetjes Barbara
Response: Yay! I'm so happy you loved it and that it arrived safely! I have a photo of what was sent inside if you want me to send it to you so you can see if everything made it. I didn't send any washi, just stickers. Thank you for the heart and not rating me down for confusing the swap!!
Comment: Hi Lisa. Your enveloppe arrived today :). I love love love it!!! So creative!! And how nice to have so much in common! I really loved the envie!!! As welk as the goodies ;). Hope jou have a lovely day :).
Response: You're so very welcome! So glad you enjoyed everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: First, I adored your envelope. The stamps you used were perfect!
Yes, it's a very character-driven book rather than the standard telling of Robin Hood. I'm a big fan of "reworked" fairy tales and other classic stories. I'm glad you joined us to step outside of your comfort zone :-).
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the envie! Thank you for the heart. I'm happy that I gave the book a try.
Comment: Great variety of such well made envelopes ...including the clever envelope you sent them in... I will be using all except for the gesso-ed one ... I want to look at it for a while.., really nice! Thanks so much
Response: LOL! I hope you use the gesso'd one eventually! Just so you know, the postal clerk totally rearranged the envelope! Took my return address from the back and taped it to the front covering part of the writing! ARGH! But glad it made it to you safely! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I did go to the Great American Stamp Store several times. I used to go there with one of my friends who likes to scrapbook. There was one lady there who worked there who was always rude to me, but super-way-overly-nice to my friend. It became sort of a joke. :-)
A Michael's opened up down the road, and I think that led to their demise.
Response: How very odd about that!! I'm glad that you are able to laugh about it! LOL. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Wowza! Thank you! LOVE the sticker sheet with the dogs (how great that quite a few are rare breeds) and your envie and the PCs and, not to be forgotten, your very nice note. Yep, whenever I go to a show where standing is necessary (like the Fillmore), I'm beat less than half way through :/ Take care, Lisa!
Response: So glad you enjoyed everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! I'm glad you enjoyed the process. I had fun with mine too - I used my super special library themed paper. I recognize some Graphic 45 on your card! Gorgeous!
Response: Yes! I spied yours on your IG and loved it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I've never had great results with salt (on paper) either -- but once with dying a silk scarf. If I had to do it over, I'd have it be a salt-optional swap and add another link. (The intention was try a different technique even though I didn't say it in the description.)
Response: I'm glad I'm not the only one. I keep saying that next time I will make sure there is more water! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: LOVED the envelope! ðŸ’• That in itself made me smile! Enjoyed your letter ðŸ˜Š We are also big Harry Potter fans! When the first movie was getting ready to come out my youngest son who was around 9-10 at the time wanted to go with his sisters and I ... my oldest said you know the rule - if a movie is a book you have to read it before you see it ( that has been a 'loose' rule of mine) well he read the first three books in about a week or so and was ready to go see the movie with us ðŸ˜Š
Response: LOL yes! That was Sienna as well with the first 2 books! Since we get from the library, we had to wait for #3 but that was read quickly and now she's on #4 now. So glad you enjoyed the envelope and letter! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for this sweet letter. You asked a lot of questions, so I want to write back and respond to all of them. (I'm currently a little behind in my swaps due to an unexpected delay, so I'm getting caught up and I will respond soon!)
Response: You are welcome! And no worries! My mailbox will always be here whenever you can respond!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Yeeeeeees, Love it! Animals in people clothes, you rock! I'm going to need that llama stamp STAT and I've been eyeballing that adorable fox stamp for awhile now. So gorgeous, thoughtful and creative, thank you so much!
Response: YAY!! Thrilled that you love it!! You are welcome! Get all the stamps!
:-D Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the great letter, and I LOVED how you decorated the envelope! The water park sounded brilliant! In answer to your question, I went to the theatre for my birthday to see 'American Idiot' which was the best thing ever (I love Green Day). And you can totally ask questions in a SOC!
Response: Yay! So glad you enjoyed the envelope and my letter! Thanks so much for the heart and rating! Glad you enjoyed your big day!
Comment: hello & thanks for the lusciously enveloped letter ~ i'm so excited having a few more penpals this year
... the letter-writing habit has served me well all winter season > swap-bot is such a pleasurable
'virtual' community: so glad you're part of it! i'll reply at my next leisure moment - yes, nice
not having a deadline, but it sure was a fun little 'obligation' last month!
Response: I absolutely agree!! Thanks for the rating and see you in the mail whenever you can!
Comment: As the great Bob Ross said "We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents." This would have been a cute card, but now it is an amazing card. It's one of the strangest and most wonderful things I've received. Keep on making those happy accidents. Also, I'm super jealous of your monkey stamp. They are one of my favorites from the books... and were totally misrepresented in the movie.
Response: Whew! So happy you enjoyed the postcard so much!! Thank you for the encouragement! I really try to keep my mind open as there are many times things don't come out they way I imagined! Bob Ross was magical. The monkey stamp is great! The stamp is from http://www.carmensveranda.com/ Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Lisa - thanks for the postcard of the statue of liberty! I actually saw it once from the ferry back in 2012 when I was in New York for a few days. I love the idea of a coloring postcard :) I'll have to see if I find any from Berlin!
Response: I thought they were cool too! They must have other cities too! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Lisa :-) I love your postcard! What a wonderful photo of a sweet old woman you found which make it SO shocking to read what comes out of her mouth! LOL. I'm 67 and I feel like saying that sometimes Hahahahah! I love inspirational quotes sometimes too, but sometimes I don't!
Response: Whew! So glad you weren't offended! I love how the card turned out and so happy you like it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Almost everyday a letter; it's awesome, thank you. I like the postcard and such a nice technique. I wonder what you used;)
Response: You are so welcome! I usually take a photo of everything I send out but for some reason, a few slipped by, including what I sent you! So I don't remember what I sent you! But I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the great funny postcard ðŸ˜‹ It was still legible. I'm not sure what might work best to write on it. Maybe a Sharpie pen? Anyways, thanks for the bawdiness, Nathan
Response: I love using the uni posca markers for those backgrounds but didn't have a thin enough one to write a whole poem. Perhaps I need to remedy that! :-) Glad you enjoyed the pc! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the cool postcard, Lisa, I love how it's celestial and at the same time an homage to feminine energy! Please never apologize for any art you send out...it's not like you are going to send something horrible to anyone and we all know that Life is an interrupting and important unavoidable Thang! New puppies more than qualify as Life Thangs, and I hope you're having a ton of fun with your new little love..!
Response: You are so right Carroll!! Thank you! And thanks for the heart!
Comment: Okay, I haven't listened to all of the songs on your lists yet, but I'm rating now anyway because I LOVE that you sent a ton of songs and I've only ever heard three of them. I was sort of afraid that I overdid it with the amount I sent. I get really excited about music and had trouble narrowing down my lists! I can't wait to listen to the rest! Thank you so much for swapping with me. I'll let you know what I think.
Response: Yay! I'm so glad! I was afraid you wouldn't find anything new. I hope you discover some favorites!! And are you kidding?! I'm still thinking about songs that I should have put on the list! LOL
Comment: Thank you, Lisa, for the cute Christmas card. It is well made and if you made it, nice job! I love how you buffed the subtle blue color around the edges of the card. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! :)
Response: You're welcome! I did make it! So glad you enjoy it! Thank you for the heart! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Both of the ornaments you sent to me are beautiful. I think my favorite is the star, the one you weren't happy with. But I like the star too. Lucky me to be your partner. Thank you for making these just for me. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
Response: Yay! So happy about that! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you Lisa for the beautiful Christmas card, you Christmas mail art envelope, and you made specially for me a handmade Christmas sparkle tree card for the swap. I have put this card up now on display in my apt as I want my visitors to see your creative card. Happy Thanksgiving!
Response: You are so welcome! I'm so happy you like them and honored that it is on display! Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: Loved receiving your envelope! The gesso underneath is very effective ( I should remember to do that more often!) and the monsters stood out so well on their white spots. The werewolf makes me think of Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London. All the goodies inside were an awesome addition...Thanks for the whole wonderful package!
Response: Yes! Gesso and then gelatos on top make it blend so nicely! So glad you love it! Now I have that song in my head! HA! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: The glow-in-the-dark ghosts in this card rocked my world! Perfection! Thank you! :)
Response: Yay! You're welcome! Glad you liked the ghosts! I don't remember if I wrote on the card that the embossed images are supposed to glow in the dark too but that powder is kinda old! Thanks for the great rating and heart!
Comment: Hi Lisa...I received your Pink and Brown PC today. I think it is just beautiful, you did a great job of it! I love it. (I'm a Pinterest freak myself LOL) Thank you so much for your artwork, cheers! ðŸ˜Šâ¤ï¸
Response: You're so welcome! I'm so glad you love it!! Thank goodness for Pinterest! LOL! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Is that a stamp of a werewolf? Either way, that is a great image but you are freaking amazing if you own a stamp of a werewolf! A little sad he doesn't glow in the dark like Frankie. Totally kidding. He is awesome! I love the little bit of sparkle around the moon and the shooting star is a nice touch. Thanks
Response: But of course I have a stamp of a werewolf!! ;-p So happy he made it there ok! I figured that Frankie might be jealousy if Wolfie glowed too! Wouldn't want there to be any fighting between them. HA! Thank you for the heart!!
Comment: Wow. THANK YOU so much for the wonderful handmade card, the comic book, and collage fodder. You went above and beyond and I really do appreciate it since my real birthday is usually depressing.
Response: You are so welcome!! I'm glad it made your day! Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, this book is great!!
I am in awe of it. It is so cherry and fun. I love the pocket in the front and the goodies that you tucked in : ).. It gives me so many ideas for the next round too!! Thanks a bunch for sending a quality swap.
Response: Oooh! I'm thrilled that you like it so much! You are so welcome!! And my goodness, you made me feel so great!! Thank YOU for that! I feel confident to go for the next round!!
Comment: Lisa thank you so much for this incredible postcard. I can tell you had a lot of fun making it, and it shines with the invested time and love of crafting. This is the sort of mail art I enjoy receiving the most.
Response: You are so welcome! I was really proud of that one and so happy you love it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for your very nice letter. I also appreciate your log. Gosh, it was on a nice organizational paper. I just write mine in on my calendar. You're ahead of me. Since this "challenge" I have fallen to the side of writing only a few days each week. I am really looking forward to pushing myself to do a letter a day---so until next April (write on challenge month)--may you find new pen pals and keep in touch with the old. May blessings! Have a great weekend.
Comment: The postcard you made took quite a beating on its journey. When I opened my mailbox there was a moon man in one corner and the postcard with the rest of my mail in the other. It is a cute design though and so different than what I did with the kit. Thank you!
Response: What a total bummer!! Well, I posted the pc in the forum if you want to see the whole thing as it's supposed to be! Thanks for rating and for giving me a heart!!
Comment: Hi there, your fantastic mail art envelope and art stickers arrived yesterday - with a postmark of April 16th! Who knows where in the world your swap has been since then? I like the stickers very much, and the light printing on the background adds to the depth of the images. Thanks for a great swap.
Response: Wow! It took the scenic route! I'm happy you like the stickers and hope it was worth the wait! :-) Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: thanks for the candid letter. omg, yes...people who talk through performances are so annoying, it drives me insane. My husband "pre-soothes" me, i.e., reminds me not to be a raving lunatic if people around me are loud.
Response: HA! That's probably for the better! Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: I have to ask...where in Brooklyn? Greenpoint native from before it was trendy and cool :) Anyway...so I read your profile to see if I could figure out your lie...This is what I deducted...You said you have several bands you love, so I think that maybe you have followed bands on tour. You also said you love bridges, so you're not afraid of heights, so I think you're telling the truth about the roller coasters. Which leaves you being an avid swimmer and almost making the olympic team, which I am going to say is the lie. And if I'm wrong about that, that's an awesome accomplishment!
Response: WHOA! You are good Susan!! You picked the right one. I tried to put things that aren't mentioned in my profile and you proved to be a very clever sleuth! Well done!! I live in Sheepshead Bay but grew up in Bay Ridge. Yes, Greenpoint is tres trendy and hip and has gotten very expensive!
Comment: Thanks for the cool stickers, Lisa! I especially like how you double stamped them in that cool offset kinda way, very effective...My faves are the glasses one and the quieter you are one! This was a fun swap an I will ejoy using all the stamps that came to me!
Response: Yay! So happy you like them! Yes, this was a very fun swap and I'm trying to make myself use the stickers I received instead of hoarding them! LOL! Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the great letter---loved your envelope. Life in the Big Apple sounds exciting. Making detergent and fabric softener is easy. Tomorrow is our big 4H meeting where we will build a fire, cook outside, water purification, dig a cat hole, wash dishes ---with an 80% chance of rain! It will be interesting. Enjoy your weekend. Thank you for your letter...very nice stationery :)
Response: You are welcome! I hope the 4H meeting worked out! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Cheers! It finally came! I am glad we waited. I absolutely love it! Thanks so much for doing something so special for me, and go ahead and give Chinese Brush Painting a try. The idea behind it is more about expressing emotion in the art rather than the details. Happy Swapping and all the best to you, Caly
Response: Yay! I'm thrilled it finally arrived! Took the scenic route! I'm so happy you love it. Thank you for rating and the heart. I will break open that Chinese Brush painting kit! Thank you!
Comment: Your card arrived today and put a big smile on my face ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜„ðŸ’Œ . I loved how you've made it ! The colouring, stamped image, scallop edge and the writing inside , everything was so beautiful ! :) thank you also for the butterfly die cut and washi tape samples ðŸ’ŒðŸ’•ðŸ’• . Hope you receive mine soon :)
Response: You are so welcome! So happy that you loved everything! Thanks for suggesting the swap and for the heart!
Comment: Oh my my my! You really out did yourself on this one! I have always wanted to try resin and never had the nerve. Now I am super excited to give it a shot! Thank you soooo much! A million hearts if I could!!!!!
Response: Oh yay!! Here's your chance girl!! It is a lot of fun and once you start, you will be addicted. Break that seal and use it!! Thanks for the heart girl!
Comment: Hi Lisa. I like how your circles turned out esp the silvery bits, and like the circles on the back. I am a cancer too married to a Man. City fan =o) Thanks.
Response: I'm happy you like it!! So we have a lot in common! :-) I made the mistake of almost buying him a Man U hat for Christmas. My daughter caught me, thank goodness! There would have been hell to pay! Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcard, Lisa! I think the colors look great mushed together, and I can definitely see the texture from the cling wrap :) I love the quote you chose, too. The glitter adds the perfect bit of shimmer, and the mail art stamp on the back of the PC is fab! I collect mail related rubber stamps and had not seen that one before. Happy swapping!
Response: You are so very welcome! So glad you love it! It really was fun to do! That rubber stamp you mentioned is old! From the 90s and I believe the company is Leavenworth Jackson. Not sure if she is still selling but worth a check!
Comment: Hi Lisa!! I was SO excited to get your huge box of goodies today!! YAY!!! I'm so glad you decided to do the swap despite your moving! Never worry about the wrapping girl! Sheesh! And you made everything look so festive and fun. Love the doilies on the top! I didn't open anything, didn't even dig deep so that I wouldn't be tempted! lol I will save it for Christmas. I so hope you enjoy your goodies too--I think you may have out done me this year!! I look forward to chatting with you after we open everything up. Big Hugs and wishes for an awesome Christmas to you, Sienna and your Hubby. xoxo
Response: Woohooo!!!! It's always a thrill to swap with you Erin!! Have a wonderful, terrific and fantastic New Year full of craftiness and swapping! oxox
Comment: I LOVE my Rudolph ornament! Anything crocheted it always a hit with me. I'm so glad you still treasure WW. Oh, and I also love the little wreath that you used to wrap the ornament with. That's going on my tree as well. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap! Have a great Holiday!
Response: Yay!! I'm so happy! You are so welcome and thank you for the heart! Have a wonderful holiday!
Comment: Hello Lisa!! :) Thank you so much for the gifts!! I have put them away in my Christmas bag and am HOPING to be able to wait!! But, my mermaid curiosity may get the best of me!! :) Merry Christmas!!!
Response: You're welcome! Thanks for rating and the heart! OPEN it!! I was in the same situation, wasn't going to open what I received but my partner 'twisted my arm' lol. Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for the resent postcard. The first one didn't make the journey:( But I like the spooky skull:))
Response: Wow! That was fast! Well, if the original ever shows up, I'd love to know! I posted the pc on my IG, if you are interested in seeing it! https://instagram.com/p/9G0ilkjtkh/?taken-by=luluvision
Comment: I think we're on the same page with The Smiths/Morrisey but my all time favorite band to this day is The Cure. Some of the others are Siouxsie and the Banshees, They Might Be Giants, INXS, etc... I really love the letter and the pen you used is way better than mine. Mine is not as fine and kind of glopy (if thats a word). Thank you so much it was so nice to hear from you!
Response: YAY! You have great taste in music! :-) I think to key to a good white pen is to keep using them! I kept hording my white pens and then when I finally decide to use them, they were crap! Bought new ones and making myself use them regularly and so far, so good!
Comment: LOVE your 'nyah nyah nya-nyaah nyaah' raspberry girl, Lisa! Thank you so much for giving me a good laugh in the midst of some trying times. She reminds me of some of my old & beloved Ken Brown rubber stamp images. What did you use to make the dimensional arrows?
Response: You are so welcome! So glad you liked her! Ahhh, Ken Brown had some awesome stamps! I still have a couple. The arrows were a die and I used glittered paper for them and then because the glue I used was still sticky when it seeped out from the bottom, I used Diamond Glaze to cover it. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Love the card you made! The colors are beautiful, and the quote is so inspirational. I love that you've been to Eureka and seen it's beauty. I'm lucky to live here and I'm lucky you were one of my partners for this swap! Thanks for the lovely envelope, too.
Response: You are so welcome! So happy you like what I sent. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Loved your Peace post card, I love quotes,and I love to imagine peace for all! Thanks for being in this swap, peace out.
Lisa: the card I was describing was from our coordinator, Skydancer! That will teach me not to jump to conclusions - lol...your card is beautiful! Love the peace stencil and the colors you used. What a great quote, and your writing is perfect for it - this is going on my super special fabulous swaps shelf. Thank you so much, wish I could give you more hearts.
Response: LOL! Glad you liked my pc. I actually sketched out the peace symbol and used masking fluid to cover it while I made the background. First time trying that! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: i wish i could give you more than one heart! stamped images are my favorite thing to receive and the envelope is amazing, we marveled over it and tried to figure out what you used for each part, i thought it was store bought for a second there lol it's perfect! can't wait to work on your scribble, i'll let you know when i'm sending it back
Response: You are so welcome! Thank you for such compliments. Those flower stamps on the back of the envelope drove me crazy so I thought instead of trying to line them all up, I'll just make them all crazy all over! LOL. So glad you liked everything!
Comment: Thank you so much, Lisa, for the cute stickers and the gorgeous Halloween envelope you decorated! I like it all so much! It's funny you sent fox stickers - my neighbor told me last night that a fox had been decimating chickens. We have had one go missing (rarely) here and there too. Despite that, I hope she doesn't shoot him. I like foxes...and we have dogs that keep them away, most of the time.
Response: Oh! I hate the thought of the fox doing that to the chickens! I hope she doesn't shoot him either. Thanks for the rating! I'm glad you enjoyed everything!
Comment: Thanks for the 3 lovely bookmarks. I especially like the one with the books on it. (Was that done with a stamp or did you draw them?) I really like how you decorated the envie too---it really brightened up my mailbox. :-)
Response: You are very welcome! I'm so glad you enjoyed everything! The books is a stamp. Still working on my drawing skills! lol Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Oh MY word Lisa!
I just got your awesome package today, and i could believe my eyes, your NY fabric thingy is awesome, at first I thought were a mug cozy, how you use it? I love it! you really made my day with that water color notebook!! i was needing one so bad so is fine if you didn't send something as gift per say, all was a gift! I would rate you with at least 3 more hearts! here you go: <3 <3 <3
Response: You're welcome! I'm so happy you like everything! Thank you for the rating and heart! The fabric bookmark is easy to use! :-) The pocket is for a pen, pencil or marker. You just wrap the elastic around your book/journal and fasten it on the button. If the elastic is too long, just put a knot in it to shorten it. Hope you enjoyed the bought gifts as well! :-)
Comment: Oh my goodness what a wonderful swap!! I love the pencil pouch (who doesn't need one) - the colors are fantastic! Also love the pencil/pen/bookmark - perfect!
Thank so much for reading my profile and creating something so perfect for me!
Response: You're very welcome! So happy you love everything! I'm all about being practical! :-) Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thanks for the great and unusual postcard! I have never seen burlap used like this! It reminded me exactly of material used for casts! Alaska is a wonderful and fascinating place to visit and to live. A couple days ago, I saw a bear on the runway and a friend told me, the same day, that he had seen one across the street from me, just hanging out. On the trip into Kodiak, I saw around 50 mountain goats on the mountain north of Zachar Bay. Of course all the animals have babies they are feeling and training up too. Hope you can come and see for yourself one day! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are very welcome! Thanks for the rating and the heart. So fascinated by what you described! I would love to come visit someday!
Comment: Zowee Batman! Love it when I find another rubber stamp addict. Definitely plan to write you back to discuss some of these old companies. All Night Media, wow, that's a blast from the past. I still own some of those. And Stampa Barbara and Circustamps. Do you remember Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers?
Response: Yay! Look forward to your response! And YES! I LOVE Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers!! I have a few of their stamps and also Museum of Modern Rubber was another great one!
Comment: I love this post card! I didn't expect it to be an actual postcard (I have not done one of these swaps before) and I am so glad because I have never had a real post card mailed to me before. I love it and I love embossing. Thank you!
Response: Yay! So glad to be your first postcard! :-) Glad you loved it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Love the butterfly mail art you created! Thank you : ) The rub-ons that you included are made by one of my favorite rub-on brands. Awesome!! Great paper tuck-ins as well! Going to definitely be included in future mail art pieces.
Response: Cool! Glad you like everything! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the really cool pc. I love the pattern and washi tape that you chose. Very creative! I also thought it was much harder than I thought it would be, but you did a great job! :-)
Response: You're welcome! So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Fantastic grasshopper postcard! I loved the carving and how you used it with the dandelion stamps. The background technique and colors were awesome, too. (I also remember Kung Fu and the young grasshopper...)
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it and also remember Kung Fu! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: absolutely LOVE the bracelet! even more so that it is repurposed! you did a lovely job and it is quite comfortable to wear! thank you so much! (i was the same. I thought "going to make earings...out of sardine labels! lol.)
Response: Awesome! So glad you like it! Sardine label earrings sounds very intriguing tho! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much Miss Lisa for the Valentine's goodies. I am going to have a lot of fun getting creative with it all. I love how you addressed the envie, I'm saving it for my smashbook! Happy Valentine's Day my friend!!
Response: You are so very welcome Erin! Always fun to swap with you! So happy you want to keep the envie for your smashbook! Happy, happy Valentine's Day to you too!
Comment: love everything especially the charms. The back of your envy looked like ocean waves so that was great for the mermaids on the front! I haven't seen resin pieces before. where did you get the mermaid mold Thanks so much
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! I made the mold myself with a piece of brass shaped like a mermaid. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Wow! Thank you Lisa for gifting me, sending me the spectacular Christmas Postcard you handmade for me! You deserve 10 hearts for creating a one-of- a- kind work of art! I'm delighted to display your artwork, will save carefully to display for next year. And amazement your postcard survived the USPS Christmas rush with no damage! Hope we meet up again in swaps for '2015. Happy New Year!
Response: You are so welcome! I'm so happy you love it so much! Thank you for the wonderful compliments and for the heart! Happy New Year!
Comment: Sorry for the late rating! LOVE EVERYTHING IN THIS LETTER !!! ESPECIALLY YOUR ENVELOPE! IT'S SOO PRETTYYYY!!! I will try to send you a reply after the holidays ok :) Thank you for everything and I wish you had a great holiday and a happy new year !

Response: I knew you would like the singing box! Saved that just for you! ;-) I hope you have as much fun opening and using the items as I did getting and wrapping them for you!! You deserve it and so much more! Thank you for asking to swap with me again!! Big HUGS!! Merry Christmas!
Comment: I loved everything from the way you treated the background, to the sparkly poppies, and yellow brick road, to the twisters and blindingly green pen! Thank you so much for sharing your art with me! And I'd love a pm from you about where you got that twister stamp! LOVE AND NEED IT!!!
Response: So happy you loved it! I really had a lot of fun with it! I don't remember where the twister stamp is from! :-( It's an unmounted stamp I put on cling so I don't have the name. I will try to do some sleuthing to find out!
Comment: Thank you for the outstanding effort you put into this swap. I would have been thrilled with just the envelope...fabulous! I love all the bird stamps and your creative design. I love.love.love the poppy postcard! (What is that shiny paint on the petals?). Thank you for reading my profile and seeing that I love poppies! The extras were awesome...I love each and every one and your handmade washi tape! Thank you so much!
Response: You are so welcome! So glad you love everything, especially the poppy postcard! That I can take 100% credit for! The envie is actually not mine, I got that in a swap for decorated envies! :-) I was so happy to read that you like poppies! It's one of the few things I can draw! LOL! Still practicing! The shiny paint is from a paint pen!
Comment: Oh my goodness girl, I need to be able to give you ten hearts!! I am just completely stunned by your generosity - great big air hugs sent your way! My girls were thrilled to get treats too, you are far too kind! Thank you thank you ðŸ’™
Response: You are very welcome! I hope you like everything! I've gotten many great swaps that included stuff for my daughter and it always makes her so happy! So just passing on the generosity! As long as they don't mind the terrible wrapping! Thank you for the heart! Now I can go follow your instagram! :-)
Comment: OH MY GOODNESS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS. Lol I absolutely adored the mail art and the letter. Where did you find the awesome Batman and Superman stamps? I need them! I've only read a few of the Batman comics myself, but do enjoy watching the movies and playing the video games. My boyfriend and I just started watching Gotham on TV as well. We can't say if we like it or not yet but I like how they focus on other characters besides Batman and The Joker. Well, sorry that I'm rambling but your mail just got me so excited haha! Thanks again!
Response: Yay! You're welcome! I'm so glad you enjoyed the mail art and letter! Thank you for the heart! I carved the Batman (and Wonder Woman) logos and someone carved me the Superman one. Google carving rubber stamps and see if it's something you might want to try! Batman is a relatively easy one.
Comment: I LOVE my charms!!!! You did a fantastic job--the spider is my favorite, but they are ALL awesome, and you really deserve way more than one heart for this! Thank you so much for such a great swap, and thank you for the little cat punch, too--it'll get a lot of use :)
Response: You're welcome! They were fun to make! I'm so glad you love them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: What a fun package Lisa!! Thank you so much for taking the time to make it about me!! I love everything!! The Wizard of Oz book is awesome, the buttons are really cool and all the crafting supplies, WOW!!!...and the caramel didn't melt!!! Thank you for a great swap!!...and the birthday wishes!!
Response: You're welcome! So glad you like everything!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: OMgosh...I can't even tell you how much I LOVE this necklace!! I'm a pearls kind of girl and this is sooo me! It is an amazing piece of jewelry art and I can't wait to wear it. Thank you for sharing your talent with me!!!!
Response: You are welcome! And thank you for the heart! So happy you like it!
Comment: Oh Lisa, I LOVE what you sent!!! I love getting hand made items & EVERYTHING you made is right up my alley! I put the magnets on my fridge first thing, they are so super cute! And I think my fav is the lil notebook, the Rabbit & Mad Hatter Tea Party graphics you used are beautiful & your card with the cut outs inside is so, so cool! Very Fun Baggie, Thank You so much!!! :)
Response: I am so glad you love everything! I love making things so it's a win/win! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the 2 pairs of beautiful earrings, I love them. You are very talented. I'm slowly getting my skills built in my jewelry creating. I have enjoyed this swap a lot. Have a wonderful day and happy swapping
Response: Thank you for the compliment! And thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hey Lisa-thanks for the great envie. I also have never gotten another NYC person , very cool we may have even met and not know it. Love your carved dragon and if you watch PBS you may catch an ad with people wearing the same image on shirts in the background.
Response: Cool! I'll have to look out for that dragon! He gets around! :-) Glad you enjoyed the envie and stamp. We very well may have met! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Lisa, thank you very much for such beautiful mail art. I loved the letter, too. It's always nice to hear from a fellow animal lover. I am sending hugs your way for your loss. Thank you for taking part in this swap.
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it all and I'm happy you gave me a heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the birthday wishes. I adore the mailart on the envie. That alone always makes me happy. Your homemade card was a true delight to receive! The alpha's are always needed so thank you again. Hugs & 100 Hearts, Mona
Response: You're welcome! So happy you are pleased! Thank you for the heart!!
Comment: I just love the necklace and pendants so much! The blue washer is so pretty. What paints did you use on it? And the other pendant has my favorite combo of copper and turquoise so it will be fun to use. I will probably make a bead necklace with copper and turquoise to hang it on.
Response: So glad you love everything and have found a use for the pendant! I mentioned about the paints in a message. Let me know if you have trouble finding it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: This was an AWESOME package! I really appreciate it! It was clear you put time and thought into it, and really read my profile! Thanks a million! I tried to wait and open each piece on the correct day but they were all wrapped so adorably it was hard to resist. In the end my inner child won out and I opened them before 'Christmas' :)
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! I can never wait to open them so I don't blame you! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful bracelets. They came today in the mail just in time for me to take them with me on my beach vacation to Florida from Ohio. I'm leaving at 5am and they are packed in my carry on bag. The colors are terrific and the one that has the pink and purple matches my bathing suit. You couldn't have done a better job, Thank you for being a wonderful partner and a terrific swap. Happy summer and HAPOY swapping
Response: You're welcome! I'm so glad you like everything! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: LISA!!!!! I love swapping with you. The Jamaica bag is AWESOME!! My husband who usually isn't interested in my swapping activity (as it means more clutter and hours of shopping :o)) said "that girl has style." Of course he is a bit bias being from Jamaica! LOL But I completely agree!! You do have style, not to mention how generous you are. I loved all the peacock and butterfly goodies. I can't wait to make earrings with the peacock charms and I'm thinking of using one as a center for a wind chime!! Percolating!! Just a big fat thank you!! I have been saving stuff for you too. I hope we will be on for our Christmas Swap again this year. Wishing you a fabtabulous summa!!!
Response: You are so very welcome Erin! My hubby gets the same way! LOL! I'm so glad my package is inspiring you!! Thank you for the heart and enjoy the summer! (And yeah, Christmas swap! Of course!)
Comment: Woohoo! Thank you so much for everything! I love the handmade things you sent - like the tea book and the bracelet! And I love all the crafting stuff you sent, from the ribbon to the floss to the yarn! Feeling very spoiled! I appreciate the details of your package, too, from the decorative shipping tape to the owl notecard you used! Thank you so much for an AWESOME swap! ♥♥♥
Response: You are so welcome! I'm so glad you love everything!! We all deserve some spoiling every so often! :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for a great summer swap package. My kids loved it! Your efforts and thoughtfullness were truly appreciated - from the choice of items, the note, to the packaging and shipping. Thank you again!

p.s. Loved the resin embellishments you made! I've never seen anything like it!
Response: You are so welcome! I'm so glad you enjoyed the package!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: The bracelet was so cute and I loved the colors. I'm tempted to have my kitty use it as a collar too. I've still got to listen to the CD, but I've never heard of the artist. Now you've piqued my curiosity!
Response: I hope you enjoy the artist. Let me know! The bracelet would make a super cute kitty collar!! thank you for the heart!
Comment: I LOVE everything you sent me! Thank you for being so thoughtful! I feel so blessed!!!! You really outdid yourself! I really love the mushroom bag!!! You put so much time into it! You are an amazing swapper and a generous person! I wish I could give a million hearts!!!

Comment: I got your pkg. yesterday. I love it . the earrings are fabulous and everything was well thought out.. as for the chocolate OMG! the timing was so good and I had no chocolate in the house,. It made my whole week. thank you.
Response: You are welcome! So glad you enjoyed it all. It was fun making the earrings! And I'm glad the chocolate had good timing! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for all the Wacky holiday stuff from March! They were totally different holidays than I chose. I love everything you sent. How sweet of you to remember the Wonder Woman doll. She has to be my favorite doll that I've made. <3
Response: You are welcome! I'm happy you love everything! And of course, your WW doll is fab! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: So many wonderful goodies for the interesting holidays. I was looking for a peanut butter fudge recipe. I will hide the chocolate bar from the kids. The bird notebook is nice I just keep looking at it on my desk. Thank you and Happy New Year January 2014.

Thank you! for being a sport and doing this swap with me. I hope you get your package tomorrow!! Merry Christmas Friend!! <3 UPDATE 12/30--Lisa, I LOVE everything!! So much great inspiring Tim Holtz goodness. I adore the penny earrings, being backwards just reflects better my personality! ;o) The wire wrapped sea glass pendant, the beading board, the wonderful luggage tags. Thank you so much, you definitely spoiled me and I'm looking forward to another private swap next Christmas if you're up to it! :o) Happy New Year Friend!!
Response: I'm so relieved! Thank YOU for setting up the swap with me!
Comment: I loved the pen holder you sent. It fits perfectly on one of my smash journals! Also... THAT chocolate is AMAZING. I normally eat a pretty intense 72% dark chocolate. But the one you sent makes my eyes roll in the back of my head. LOL. I've seen it at the grocery store tons of times but have never tried it. The center is dark... but so melty and creamy. Truly a lovely surprise. Thank you.
Response: Yes, that chocolate is heavenly, isn't it?! So glad you like it and the pen holder! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I love all of the Monster high stuff! You hand made magnets? I already put them up! They are around my labtop(not on it) but there is some metal backing around my desk so i put'em there. I've never heard of this candy either soooo thank you <33333
Response: Yes, I handmade everything! Glad you love it all! Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: Thank you Lisa for the nice necklaces I really luv them and have them hanging on my mantel for all to see. I will make sure I take them in June when I will be with all my girls and all my grandbabies. I NEED to show them off. Thank you again and thanks for swapping. I think it was very cute including my lil' Gizmo in my daughter necklace.
Response: You are so welcome! I'm very happy you love them both! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks so much! I wish I could give you many many hearts!! I LOVE the book mark/pen holder. The little booklets that you made are so cute. I'm lovin' the bath salts and the treats, too. A wonderful package!!
Response: So glad you enjoy the package! Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: What a cute card the chocolate bunny will not last long in the basket LOL. Thanks for the great card. Thank you for sending Lilly a card for Easter I know she luvs reading all the cards she gets.
Response: You are so welcome! I love it when an idea comes together (doesn't happen too often with me! lol) and was so excited that I thought to texture the basket! lol Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I love the book!!!! And the paper you used is way cool! What paper line is that? I want some! :) Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad you love it! Isn't the paper great?! You're talking about the glossy one, right? It's from Die Cuts With a View. I didn't need any paper but when I saw that one, I had to have it, you know, for this swap! :-)
Comment: Thankyou Lisa for the nice note I enjoyed reading it, we have had a bit of snow here, on Dartmoor there has been alot of snow. Thankyou for the lovely handmade card and I love the envie, have a nice day Lisa, love jennifer.
Response: You're welcome! So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the heart! Now it's our turn to get some snow, about 6-12 inches!
Comment: Hi Lisa! I received your hand made card for this Mega swap as #19..and yours was the closest to mine of all and I am soooo happy!
starting with the envi...LOVE the "please check one: naughty or nice boxes "hand stamped"..the beautiful Christmas stamp , the "bubble letters you again "hand drew" FAT , outlined and filled in!! APPRECIATE soooo much your attention to detail!! ....turing it over..MORE goodness..with the many stamp strands of ornaments "hanging" along with the one looking like they mirror at bottom! AGAIN..ADDING color and GLITTER!
Opening the card..what a great treat!! LOVE the cutout tree, my favorite color ..TEAL stained for background to make the MOST perfect beautiful shade!! and the silver "raised" layers of "SNOW" or tinsle (could be either!) with just using "red" for ornaments..LOTS..AMAZING! (THE MORE THE MERRIER!!!) and the little gold star!
My next favorite was and the use of the perfect size tag..having it "float" on top and the use of MY favorite twine..in matching candycane color!! GROOVY GIRL!!!!!!! TOTALLY DUG IT!! Loved the sentiment inside the card too..and don't ever worry with me girl about adding TOO much lol...I'm with ya!! I APPRECIATE your talent and CARE! It is my favorite card of the year!
Response: Thank you so much!! That is the most detailed and amazing rating I ever received! Thank you for taking the time to write all that! I'm so glad you like it!! Merry Christmas!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: o.k., so I have no will power, I had to open my gifts already! I ncan't thank you enough. That journal is awesome and I can't wait to start using it! Very cool earrings too. And of course, thank you for the extra sewing goodies.
Response: LOL, I totally understand! So glad you like everything! Would love to see any photos of your journal once you start using it!!
Comment: Oh my gosh! Thank you so much. The garland you sent is just gorgeous. I put it immediately on my tree! I love it. Thank you so much. Thanks too for the extra little tickets. You're the best.
Response: I'm so happy you like it so much! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I'm waiting to open them....thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed this swap. From my profile, you were spot-on in choosing little gifties...I love the fabrics- the pink totally works in that print, the charms, the chocolate, the frog eraser...EVERYTHING! Thank you!
Response: You have such will power! :-) Hope you enjoy! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Love it! The snacks will not last long, the sewing bits are much appreciated, and you clearly read my profile with the circus pendants! I also loved the handmade card with the witch - she is adorable. Great swap - thanks!
Comment: Lisa--how could I not be delighted with butterflies, skeleton keys, gears,and lacey circles? And I'll find plenty of uses for the little tags on cards, scrapbook pages, and ATCs. Thank you so much! Wish we had a way to give more than one heart! Thanks!
Response: You are very welcome! I'm so glad you like them all. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you! I wish I could cut vinyl as well as you! And although I don't have glasses myself, my family members do. Are they OK for plastic glasses, too? ETA: I bet your machine wouldn't have done anything on its own - it's just a tool... For example, I consider that I'm the one rating you, not my computer. :P
Response: Wow! You got my package fast! I'm glad you like the vinyl. It wasn't me that cut it, it's my machine! :-) The wipes are good for plastic glasses, computer screens, camera lenses...Thanks for the heart and I'm glad you liked everything.
Comment: Thanks! Loved what you sent, especially the bracelet! The fortune cookies are already about 1/3 gone â€” and that's just from eating the broken pieces! (No calories that way!) My grandson was over last weekend and took home an eye patch my husband had in his "toy" box. Heard he wore it to bed, so it's probably already trashed. His birthday is next week (he'll be 5), so I'll pass the pirate booty along to him. I'm sure he'll love it! Can't wait to use the rub-ons on some homemade cards. Can't ever have enough. And I'll probably try the clay mask over this long weekend. THANKS!!
Response: Yay! That makes me very happy! I'm so glad everything is being enjoyed. Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: I can't begin to describe this awesome swap Lisa! Thank you so much everything - I loved it all from the pendant, decor, the candies (loved the iced tea ones!), and the wrapping. I would love to do a private swap with you. Thank you so much for joining and for the loveliness you sent me. (ï½¡â—•â€¿â€¿â—•ï½¡)
Response: Woohooo! I'm so glad you loved everything! It was so much fun to put together. Would love to do a private swap! Whenever you want! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the amazing package! I loved opening everything up. I loved the nerd necklace - I can't believe you made it! I am a complete sucker for cookie cutters, and I can't wait to try the flower. And my furry friends definitely appreciated the treats! Thanks again. =)
Response: You're so welcome! Glad you like everything!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome kit - top quality instruction leaflet/zine & materials. I've always wanted to try macrame, so this is perfect for me! I hadn't started to worry that I had not yet received this as it is only just over 3 weeks since marked sent - but there was a label on top of the customers label informing me that it had been 'Missent to Thailand' - how crazy/cool is that? And lucky that it was re-routed back to me so quickly, too! ;)
Comment: LISA! Hello! The wonderful lady who sent me the BEST jewelry pendants I own!! Girl, thank you so much for the rad stuff! I love it all! Did you handmake all of these? You are truely talented! I've been wanting to make wire wrapped rings for AGES,even have a tutorial I've never used. Thank you so much, this all rocks and the card is grade A adorable!! BTW, I ended up noticing that the pendants you made me look better with just a chain. They looked to girly with how I wanted to make them. When I get photos of me wearing them, I will share them with you!
Response: I'm so glad you like everything Jenny! Yes, I handmade everything (except the card, that was from another swapper!) Thank you so much for the compliment! I can't wait to see photos!! And you must try out your wire wrapped tute! It's so much fun!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome swap! I had so much fun opening it all, and I loved the holidays you picked and how much care and attention you put into it! You are an amazing swapper and you totally deserve ALL THE HEARTS. (Words cannot accurately describe my reaction while I was opening your package. The millionaire kleenex cracked me up, and the noise I made when I found my awesome, awesome office ninja pin was in a frequency only dogs can hear. I'm torn between wearing it to work or referring to it as my precious, Lord of the Rings style.) Thank you!
Response: You are so very welcome! I'm so happy that you like everything! And thank you for recognizing the attention I put into it! Cheers all around! :-)
Comment: Hi Lisa, Thanks very much for the lovely asst of items in my 12 eggs. I loved everything and thanks for considering my profile. Can you believe I opened the egg with the ring in it first--I couldn't believe it. I really like the butterfly pendant and going to get it on a cord now to wear it! Did you make the glass owl? The ring is just my style in bronze!! Thanks for being such an awesome swapper!
Response: You are welcome! I'm so glad you like everything. I hope the ring fits! I did not make the glass owl, that's from an Etsy shop called Happy Cloud. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: zOMG! Thank you so much for such awesome, thoughtful gifts! I've already opened them, but plan to use them for the first time on their intended holidays [though I DID technically use the little purse/pouch already by putting everything else in it].
Response: Yay! So glad you like everything! It was fun putting it together for you. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hello Lisa,
Thank you for the 3 unique and special Valentine cards you created for me. Each showed your creativity. These cards will be a great additon to my card collection until I can use the cards. Thank you again for GREAT cards.
Response: You are very welcome and thank you for the compliment. Sure glad you like them and thanks for the heart!
Comment: OK I am IMPRESSED!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE both stamps - you did an amazing job on them! And you packaged everything up so beautifully! It was really a special valentine treat to open your package! THANKS A MILLION - and the chocolate was a really sweet touch! I hope to swap with you again soon!!!!
Response: You are so welcome! So glad you love them! Thanks for the compliments, too kind! Wasn't sure if you were into chocolates but figured a couple wouldn't hurt! :-) Totally down for a private swap!
Comment: What a cheery surprise in the mailbox today -- your lovely card. Even the envelope made me smile! Especially liked your cheery note -- lived many years in NY. Our groundhog had no trouble seeing his shadow, it was sunny. :)
Response: so glad you like it! So that means spring is coming sooner, right? :-)
Comment: What an awesome package! You make up for some of the other pkgs I've recd lately that were rather pathetic, I hate to say. I've been wanting to try some Ahmad tea, heard good comments about it. Thanks for the awesome stamp! Can I ink it? I'm not familiar with the material you used. I have it on my breadbox right now. Also, did you make the tea holder? It is such a clever idea! I'd give more hearts if I could! Thanks for considering my profile!
Response: so glad you like everything! Yes! You can ink it! I should have inked your wrapping paper so you can see. You can stick the stamp on an acrylic block or any kind of plastic container to help you stamp it. I did not make the tea holder but it is handmade by another awesome swapper! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I am SO sorry that it's taken me this long to rate you. I feel like a horrible swapper. You sent the most delightful box and it got lost in the Christmas shuffle and I'm so sorry.
Once you reminded me I remembered opening it and just squealing with how fun it was!
Thanks again so very very much. Lets swap again soon!
Response: Are you kidding? You are an awesome swapper! So glad you like everything! I may have to go back to that store I bought your pen at! I want one for myself! LOL
Comment: Thank you so very very much for the wonderful gifts!!! Adam and Olivia each loved their presents!!!!! They already tore them open!!! :) Thank you thank you thank you!!!! Perfect!! Merry Christmas to you and your family!! <3
Response: You are very welcome! So glad they both love their gifts!
Comment: I opened these early :) the suspense was killing me :) E verything is wonderful and very useful! If I could send you an endless amount of stars I would! Thank - you so very much! Have a happy Holiday season!
Response: You are very welcome! I'm so glad you like everything! Thanks for the heart! Merry Christmas to you!
Comment: Lisa...Another amazing handmade card from you!!! THANKS!!...it is beautiful:) I'm a papercrafter wannabe and love to see the work of talented people like you !! The wreath is so intricate...Merry Christmas!!
Response: aww, you are so sweet! I hope you will give papercrafting a try! Merry Christmas to you too! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Lisa...what a cute card :) and thanks for reading my profile. Got partners for the 100 rated swapperscard swap and see I'm going to get another fun card from you :) I'll be looking forward to it!! Happy Holidays to you!!
Response: So glad you like it! Now I just gotta make sure I don't send you the same card! LOL
Comment: Give a heart, and another heart, and another and another! I wish I could give you lots of hearts! You are always so creative with your swaps! Love the pendant that you made (I always enjoy your handmade items) and the wheat cracker snacks are good. I'm eating them now. I was curious about them too. Thanks so much for a fun swap and for continually joining them!
Response: So happy you like everything! Thanks so much for always hosting this fun swap!
Comment: Lisa, I LOVE your Halloween charm! How funny that we both had spiders on the mind :) We have them everywhere in the Pacific NW right now. I hear they are out looking for girlfriends. lol (true thing). Your woven necklace is very cool! I don"t have the patience for something like that but love the outcome. Thanks for a great swap! -Julia-
Response: I'm so glad!!! You are very welcome. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Wow !!! Thank you so much for my Halloween goodies - each item was so fun - I love the bat and the coffin container, the cookie cutter and stamps and all the fun goodies - the card is beautiful â™¥ *** Yes the pendant made it --- sorry not to mention it --- it is gorgeous ---you really spoiled me thanks so much :) â™¥
Response: You are so welcome! So glad you like everything! Thanks so much for the heart! Did the pendant make it ok? I bubble wrapped it to be extra sure! At least I think I bubble wrapped it! LOL
Comment: Loved everything. The pin is added to my collection. The red things are bobbins that you wrap yarn around in small batches-love them, always can use more. I love butterscotch pudding. Thank you, Shirley
Comment: I was so happy to get the beautiful handmade bracelets in the mail today, along with your thoughtful note. I just love both bradelets. I like the fact that they can be worn together or seperately and that there is a casual one as well as a fancy one. Your use of macrame has me walking down memory lane...when I was in first grade, my whole class learned macrame. At the time I thought it was easy and was annoyed with the other kids in the class for not being able to tie knots. Looking back, I can't imagine what the teacher went through with twenty-some six year olds making macrame owls! Oh, and the safety eyes? Can't get enough of 'em. Thanks for everything!
Comment: want thank you for all your gifts. they are great. i was away and came back with a broken arm, so forgot the box in my closet. so this was a great pic me up all. since i had all items in one box to choose from, you know what you sent and it was well received from the homemade items to the store boughten. you all looked at my profile. thanks and 5 hearts more if I could!
Response: Oh no! A broken arm! Glad my swap brightened your day! You are welcome for everything and glad you like it all. Happy New Year!
Comment: thanks for everything, especially for carefully researching my profile! The autism pendant is very special, and I also adore the antique necklaces - the one with the silver flask is amazing. I can't decide what to do with it yet, but it will be something special. Blessed New Year to you!
Response: You are so welcome! So glad you like everything! I had a feeling the silver flask would be cool with you! Happy New Year!
Comment: Love both of the bracelets. I did macrame years ago but never saw this type with the beads-you did a great job. I have one of the looms to make the other kind but haven't played with it too much. Again great job and love the colors.
Comment: Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for the beautiful pendant! I am so excited! Did you make it? I am so jealous of people that make jewelry...something I just don't have the patience for. Thanks again:0)))) Teri
Response: Hi Teri!
So glad you like it! You are welcome! Yes, I did make it! Remember what the swap is, after all! LOL! :-)
Comment: Lisa! Wowie! What a fantastic package you sent!!! How in the world did you make Karen Cooper out of shimmer paper and vinyl? Status update, its super badass!! I'm not worried about the hole being too close to the edge, I make and fix jewelry so I will make sure it stays put! I'd really like to know how you made it! Wanna send me a PM and let me know? Its fangtastic! Thanks so much also for the handcarved stamp! I've still yet to try my own!!! I'm glad you like anatomical hearts too!! I also love the ribbon stamped piece, I have a special idea for this!! I can't say thanks enough, this stuff rocks!
Response: there's a third thing in there too! I was afraid you might miss it! So glad you love everything!! Will PM you shortly!
Comment: You did a terrific job matching the gifts to my profile. Loved the GWTW pendant - great job. All the watermelon candy and gum and trail mix is being enjoyed. Great oriental journal and beautiful lighthouse cards. The extra little pins were nice and the handmade care was gorgeous. You are very clever and creative. Thanks for everything.
Response: You are so very welcome for everything! I'm so glad you enjoyed the Asian inspired journal and the lighthouse cards! The pendant was fun to make! Enjoy the edible treats!
Comment: Love the cards - great since I am running low on the hand made cards that I use for swaps - to let others know what i have done for them and acknowledge the handmade card made by someone else. Nothing feels better than to share a gifted talent! hugs
Response: So glad you like them!! They were fun to do. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: thanks so much - will rerate once i deliver to my niece this sunday and she gives me her heart of approval! which i am sure she will.****Well she loved it just called me so excited about it and said "Thanks so much for signing us up!"

Comment: As usual, another fantastic package from you! Swappers like you really make Swap-bot swapping so much fun! You said you made 1 thing, was it the donut pouch or the necklace? I just love the necklace, the pouch is so cute, the wafers are yummy (I couldn't resist opening them right away!), I have a thing for smiley faces and retro anything so love the push pins, and just everything is great. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! Thank you for such kind comments! I made the necklace! Experimenting with some new techniques so you were my guinea pig!
Comment: Thank you very much! I was so very thrilled with your craft! I showed my husband and he asked if I could give you more than one heart and needless to say if I could I would! They are beautiful....thank you. I do adore daisies. I would love to know how you made them as they are really beautiful. They are awesome and opening that package has made my day. Thank-you!
Response: I'm so glad you like them!! Thank you for the comments and heart! They were both made with UV resin and glitter. The daisy with the black outline is a rubber stamp and the other one is a paper die cut. I hope to start selling them so I'm thrilled you like them!!
Comment: Super Penguin is Super Awesome!!!!! He is so well made and his costume is delightful. I especially love the fishes at the top of his cape. Very cute. Such beautiful detiails from his beak down to his webbed feet. Thank you for making me such a lovely swap!!! And the zine was awesome too! Really fun :)
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like Super Penguin! I had a great pattern so I can't take all the credit. He was a little hard to give up but I know he is in a good home! I'm sure there are a lot of zoos by you that need him! :-)
Comment: I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT! EVerything was over the top wonderful. Its hard to find circus themed scrapbooking stuff and you managed to find things I hadn't seen before. Plus showing me some fun ways to use them! I love the domino pins and the stack of the note cards that I will have a hard time parting with as well as the goodies to make more things of my own. As far as I am concerned I got the best of the best partner ever! Thank You !

I peeked inside of the big envie and it's like you know her personally... she's going to love doing the workbooks and the mad libs (she's just gotten into doing those in the past few weeks) and I love the "create your own monkey postcards" set that you made too... awesome! I wish I could give you more hearts for this swap! Thanks a bunch!!!

Comment: OMG! I'm totally speechless!!! I so love the earrings you made for me! Both of them!!! I got the goosebumps as I read your letter! I was asking myself how on earth did you find out my sweetie's name. lol I showed her the earrings and she grinned at me, telling me you contacted her. Unlike me she can keep a secret. Hehe. Anyway you totally rocked my socks and I would give you more than one heart if I could!!! Have a great Valentine too Lisa! <3<3<3
Response: yay! I'm so glad you like them both! Feel free to send me a photo of you wearing them! :-) I would love to see!! As I mentioned, they are a WIP so feel free to give me any tips on how to make the next ones even better!!
Comment: I finally had time to open this package today. Thank you, thank you for the wonderful stuff! First off, love the chocolate. My Aiden was very interested when I was opening the package... I thought it was the chocolate, then I saw the catnip mice. He went wild! The flowers and cards are very pretty.and I love crosswords. Yes I was very happy with what you sent. :)
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! Thanks for the heart! My Neo was going crazy when I was making the catnip mice too!
Comment: Wow, those are some great panoramic photos. Both of them look like tons of fun and I espically loved the suspension bridge. Great work and thanks for sharing. Also thanks for the Bunny Log link, I will be checking it out tonight as soon as I get home.
Response: Thanks Denise! Hope you enjoy my website as well!
Comment: yikes-seeing that bridge & hearing about your experience on it gave me shudders! i love bridges but am also a bit scared of them!(esp. ones like THAT!!) awesome photos-thanks for sharing! happy swapping & shooting!:)
Response: Thank you! I can still remember walking over that bridge and getting shivers!
Comment: Lisa, I LOVE YOU! Seriously, I'd give you a dozen hearts if I could. It couldn't have come at a better time either, as I've been having a lousy day...then the mail came, I opened your parcel full of AWESOME, and I feel better now - thank you so much! I'm wearing the fingerless gloves right now (LOVE them!) and one of the bookmarks you made immediately took the place of the random bit of paper that was marking my spot in 'Dead and Gone'. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: I'm so glad you like everything and that it made your day! I hope the bookmarks don't distract from your reading! :-)
Comment: Hey Lisa, I'm really sorry about the late rating! I loved all my packages but I got distracted over the holiday season. I got a bunch of zines, a whack of handmade postcards, Craft Leftovers zine, and a hand carved stamp of glasses! Great job, this was an awesome swap! :)
Response: EDIT! (Just remembered that you mentioned the name stamp in my comments! Doh!) So glad you love it all! You also got your swap-bot name carving too right? I cleaned my craft desk so I must have sent it as I didn't see it here! LOL! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: When I first opened your package, I told myself I would open the gifts that didn't fit in the stocking right away, and save the rest for later. But once I began, I lost all self-contol and got so excited, I opened them all at once! Every single thing is so lovely, so clearlypicked/made with thoughtfulness; I am over the moon thrilled with it all! Thank you tons and bunches for the pretty jewelry, all the owly goodness, gorgeous photography, even paste cd's- no way!!! Everything is beyond awesome:)
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! It was so much fun to put together for you. I was afraid it would be too owly! (BTW, those red owl earrings are made of paper! I made a pair for myself as well and they seem to hold up ok, just don't wear them in the shower! LOL) And I was so glad to be able to find some Paste cds for you! Happy Holidays!
Comment: Guess what came today! I was so happy to see you were my partner again. Yay for me. :). Okay.... So I started with package 1 and that was going to be it. I couldn't stop so they all got opened. Lol All the packages were so creative and cute. I love love love everything! The stamps are amazing and the paper flowers and pins. The little felt wallet is awesome. You are very talented and a great swapper. I am lucky to have had you as a partner! Have a very Merry Christmas! Thanks so much!!!!
Response: You are very welcome!! I'm so glad you like everything! It is fun to have you for a partner. Thank you for all the compliments! ;-) Have a GREAT holiday!
