Comment: You did such a nice job decorating this envelope with the many different images, great job! I appreciate all the miscellaneous goodies too- washi, used postage stamps, die cuts, and random collage/ephemera bits. Thanks so much!
Comment: Oh my goodness!! How generous of you to send me all these beautiful Easter eggs ATCs! They will fit perfect in my holiday collection. I have all the different holidays in a separate collection. The little fairy girl is super cute and I will cherish her forever! Thank you. 💕
Comment: Thank you so much for this lovely package! I do love ALL the atcs you sent, they are so cute and lovely! I adore Halloween as you mentioned, and your lovely card makes me so happy! I keep it on my desk and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Thank you for swapping with me!
Comment: Thank you so much for your ATCs!! Your green peace wreath was really special and the extra 3 were a true bonus!
I also wonder if we have met! I haven't gone to any of the Oakland Co. Genealogy Society meetings, though I have a patient who has bugged me to join, lol. I attended the NGS Convention in Grand Rapids in 2018 and go to smaller seminars occasionally as I find them, including a few held by the MGC. I'm actually working on creating a talk that combines my love for genealogy, my career in nursing, and my history degree, about how illness/medicine, etc. affected the lives of our ancestors. It's been slow going with all the other "life stuff" I have going on, but I hope it's something I can present in the near future.
Again, thank you so much!
Comment: I absolutely love these cards! They are so unique and thank you for not including glitter, I appreciate it. These cards are a great addition to my collection. That butterfly one is definitely on my favorites list!!
Comment: Whoever thought that the dog days of summer was about it being too hot to move has never really watched dogs on a beach or in the woods during summer...wheeeeeee.
Love the ATC, absolutely perfect. And you are right, we do have a great deal in common.
Comment: Thank you, the card you made is beautiful and your weekend sounds like an awesome success with the surprise party! Good luck making all those christmas cards, whee! Lovely extras as well, â™¥!
Comment: Thank you for the mesmerizingly beautiful floral envelope -- it reminds me of shopping for flowers at Central Market in Houston, and it's going on my mood board :) -- and lovely postage stickers, Katherine! I look forward to using them in future projects. Hope you are having a good week and that our paths cross again soon!
Comment: OH. MY. GOODNESS!! I love, love, love the cherry ATC!!! It is so stinkin cute...for real...and Mary Engelbreit is right up my alley. Love the extra goodies as well :) Thank you sooo much!!
(only problem is...I feel kinda embarrassed bout what I sent out...still learning tho)
Response: I'm sure it was fine! We all need to start somewhere! :-)
Comment: Hello Moonswings! Wow! What can I say? Thank you for the wonderful wonderful amazing deaths swap I received yesterday! I was ill yesterday so I didn't rate it then.
Wow you took alot if time matching my likes! You went above and beyond with the amount! I liked every piece of it! The zebra pics were stunning!
You are a very kind and giving person very sweet! You deserve an infinity amount of hearts! Thanks for making me very happy!
Comment: What a huge assortment of fun goodies! I love the old book pages and vintage ephemera. Plaid Stamps? I thought there were only Green Stamps :) This is also the first time I've seen a paper trader hitchhiker card (I added a postage stamp to it already). Too many things to mention them all, so I'll just say a big thank you for sharing your crafty stash times 10.
Comment: Thank you thank you so much for the beautiful card, always love glitter, thanks for the collection of b/w papers, have a swap that needs that color right now...happy swapping...are you on Facebook. Susie
Comment: Thanks for the bookmark. I love the idea. I have read Kristin Hannah and love her. Will look for books by the other authors you recommended. Thanks for sharing. I love the PCs.Thank you for everything you sent
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful card, skinny card, bookmark and postcard. I love them all. It was so thoughtful to include so much with this swap and I really appreciate it. I hope you are having a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Comment: Katherine--these flowers are wonderful! I would never think of felt as a media for adding "leaves" to the buttons and flowers. These already are planned for use in a swap in another group. Thanks so much and wish I could give you more than just one little heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely stash of different papers. I love the bears, butterflies and dragonflies, you never have too many. And the tags and envelopes will definitely be used. You made my weekend, now I will spend the weekend in my craft room! A heart plus many more!
Comment: Thank you for the envelope and card and cutouts that you sent. The envelope and card are too nice to use. The will go into my elephant collection. And probably get posted with my other cards in my bedroom.
Comment: thank you, thank you, thank you. i love the atc. the color combination is great and all the different puples work really well. thank you also for all the background papers. they are one of my favorite things to trade.
Comment: Katherine, thank you for quite possibly my most wonderful swap yet!!! Thank you, of course, for the beautiful bird and butterfly images, but also for the super generous images of Mary.... I opened the envie and immediately said "wow!"... So much fun....thank you, thank you, thank you!
Comment: Katherine thank you for the wonderful ATC and extra's. I had a rough week then I started to do a little better the last couple of days and then I can't work any more and the SSD is giving me a hard time. Saying I can't get help. Oh I'm trying to keep in check but it is not easy and no one understands what I have to go thru. I get so upset and I'm very emotional so I cry. I have not been able to work for 5 years. It is not fair my husband has to take on ALL my responsibility. But I have to go and get a lawyer that I can not afford and then I will get told no because I'm married and he makes too much which is not fair either. But I'm sorry for just running on an on. I really loved everything and I needed that today. Thanks :)
Comment: I wish I could give more than 1 heart.
The Paisley ATC is so pretty and the colors are so pretty. Also all of those beautiful bird stamps are so special. I don't know if I will ever share them. Selfish me. Thank you for sharing so much.
Comment: Thank you for the beautifu ATC and the postoids. When we lived in Michigan, I saw a doctor in Ann Arbor. Always had to stop at The ScrapBox to see what treasures I could find. Are they still open? I miss going there.
Comment: â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥Thank you sooooo much for this great package full of butterflies!
Everything allright with your dog????
Response: I'm so glad you liked it, and thank you for being so understanding about me having to send it one day late. Unfortunately, our sweet little Chippie died on Friday, Feb 15th at 8:30am. You can see beautiful photos of her prior to her death at http://tinyurl.com/anjquxf. Thank you so much for asking about her - you're very kind. <3
Comment: WOW you have left me speechless. I love everything you have sent. It is going to kick up my collection. Now i really have to learn how to get the stamps off the envelopes.
Response: My understanding is that, as long as the envelope was white, you can soak the stamp in some lukewarm water for about an hour or two, and it should slide right off. If the envelope was another color, you want to rip as much off as possible so it doesn't stain the stamp, and then do the same process (soak for 1-2 hours). Hope this works, and glad you liked the assortment! :-)
Comment: Thank you for such a fabulous package. I have never received so much stuff that I could think immediatly what craft I would make with it. I love the fairy items and Sage will be thrilled. I just adore the thick card stock that has the large spider mumm on it! The travel , Paris and all my goodies are perfect. Thanks again, Hugs, Mona
Comment: Wow! I opened your package with my daughter and we were both so delighted with your beautiful handmade papers & envelopes. I feel like I definitely hit the swap jackpot with these lovelies and can't wait to use them! Thanks bunches!!!
Comment: So much fun stuff in there, holy cow! I can't wait to use it on all the projects I have coming up. I definitely needed to restock some new textured papers. Thank you so much for an incredible swap!
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the awesome pc! I would never rate without giving someone a chance to resend, as we can't help what the post office does with our stuff! LOL! We visited WA state this summer as well, just lovely! I hope your hubby is doing well, I can only imagine how him being deployed must be for you and your family! My oldest son is in Army ROTC and I know some day we will be looking at that! Yikes! Wishing you and yours the very best! Many hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: My goodness, Katherine, you certainly catered to my profile! Thank you for all the lovely postcards, plus the extra. The surprise really cheered me up because at the time I opened your mail, my husband was undergoing surgery in hospital. I love the p.c.'s, especially the Canadian mountie, art, musical and nature! A huge, big thank you for them all. :)
Comment: wow, thank you so much for the extra full package!
I am so excited to use all the goodies you sent.
You made me feel so special to receive such an awesome package from you.
Wish I could give you more hearts & stars too ;o)
Comment: Thank you so much for the Minneapolis postcard. The idea of holding doors open for others has always been a favorite of mine. I also enjoy the smiles received from doing so. Thanks again for the awesome postcard.
Comment: Thank you so much for your package Katherine!! You went way above and beyond the swap specs for this one, I was completely surprised by your huge package! I had so much fun looking through all the wonderful ephemera. Gorgeous stamps and vintage sheets and...and... And I love the variety of napkins! I will have fun playing with all my new papers. Thanks for filling my box with such cheer. xx, Kristin
Comment: Hello, I received your absolutely magnificent pack of ephemera today! It was too big to fit in my mail box, and when I saw it I first thought - I don't recall ordering any books. How generous hearted you are to send such a fabulous assortment of papers. I love them all and will be happily collaging for a long time. Many thanks.
Comment: I like your friend's painting. And my what a small world, most people have never heard of Edina, much less know someone here. We're usually just associated with Minneapolis. I hope your friend is enjoying our very mild winter here so far, cheers
Comment: Thank you for sharing your experience of getting lost in Venice. It's funny because both you and my other partner wrote about getting lost and used the word "retrospect." The Sacramento postcard is really great!
Comment: I wrote my postcards about being lost in Venice too -- especially one rainy night after dinner with a bottle of wine, As you say finding San Marco was the lucky part, from there we found the hotel.
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for all of the awesome stuff! I loved it all. It was exciting to look at and I will definitely be making more ATC's in the future out of all the unique paper. I was definitely not expecting that many things and I really appreciate it! (=
Comment: I got your ribbons today and my oh my.. did you go OVERBOARD! :) I love them all.. and you are right.. ribbons are great for everything.. I'm making my first art journal and I am going to use some of these in it! :) Thanks so much!! â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: thank you for the postcard! we have about 2-3 feet of snow here, right now. very windy & cold!! i stronly dislike the snow. this is when i thank the lord i have a cat, and not a dog. =P i don't have as much tolerance. haha!
Comment: what beautiful cards you sent me!!! absolutly stunning, i love them, and the goodies are awsome i love mermaids, cant wait to use them...hope we can do a private trade soon...thank you soo much!
Comment: Very special card! I love it! Thank you thank you. Also the many pages of foreign print was so thoughtful. I really am honored that you read my profile and then selected such a perfect extra to send. You're the best!
Comment: Thanks for the extra thought in the postcard :D I really liked the dog on the front. I sooo agree with you on the cell phone thing.. if you're hanging out with someone.. TALK to THAT PERSON, not someone they wish they were with!
Comment: Thank you for the card (I appreciate that you looked at my profile and saw that I liked animals, I LOVE the PC...and I also like that's it of New Zealand, it's my first that is of another country!) I also agree with your peeve!
Comment: Thank you for the most WONDERFULLY AWESOME selection of brown/black/metallic papers you sent to me. You spoiled me in that you gave me 46 different ones!!. WOW! I don't have ANY of these, so I'm really going to have fun seeing how I can create with them. I had to laugh at your note though and I'm thinking perhaps you must have been in a hurry because your last sentence reads "I couldn't decided which 20 to send, so I think there's more like" That's it, you didn't finish your sentence, and there was not other note in the envelope.
Response: Ha ha ha ha ha!!! I can't believe I forgot to finish the note! :-)
Comment: Hi Katherine, Thanks for the great ATC, and the extra ATC's! I love the one you sent, and I also love the extra one's. I, like you, need to downsize my collection. But, I hate to get rid of any of them. I hope to swap with you again. Thanks again! Nancy (grannystamper)
Comment: treet trees, wonderful old trees!
thank you so much for those lovely vintage
views ... it's an honorable way to recycle
those wood products, inspire the future
for more lush greenery & get the extra
i especially like the 'eaten' corner of the
redwoods one ... adds character,
& perfect for an envelope that protects
it from the uglier scratches of the modern
Comment: WOW - thank you so much for an awesome vintage nude ATC; I am very proud to have it in my collection :-) You did an outstanding job. I also want to thank you so much for the 2 extra ATCs you send me - opening your envelope felt like Christmas. Thanks a lot....
Comment: Hi Katherine! Thank you for the lovely chicken atc! What a great idea to include the cancelled stamp! And the gold seal (button/coin?) is eye-catching! It was so nice of you to include the other cards, hand selected from hints from my profile! I appreciate your generosity and personal touch! Good luck with down-sizing your collection! Take care! Karen (penandink)
Comment: Holy Smokes, I loved, LOVED The Mail Art envelope you created! And the ATC"s were lovely too of course- thank you for the 3! Extras you sent! I wish I could give you more than one heart- thanks so much for everything!!!
Comment: Katherine!! WOWIE! What a great package of ATCs!!! I really like the one you made, such a great use of the materials! I like the fabric over the face, it is really neat looking!!! I can't say thanks enough for all the extra ATCs! You know me very well based on my profile, I love each of the extras you sent!!! I'm happy to put all of these in my ATC books;) I do understand downsizing, I do that all the time with ATCs:P
Comment: Wow! So many stamps! Thank you so much! You sent me stamps that I don't have- Yeah! Great note paper too!- Yes if you wanted we could do a private swap too. mnsqb on swap-bot. ([email protected])
Comment: oh K-this was an absolutely WONDERFUL swap surprise!!! Your ATC is just LOVELY, how DID you know the fetish i have for glitter??! lol! and all the other ATC's-the beautiful abundance took my breath away!! Thanks to you, I am amassing a quite awesome collection of these little works of art, and i could not be more thrilled! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity!! Blessings & happy swapping hugs!
Comment: Thank you for all the tiger extras :) I was in awe of your generosity.I like both your Zentangles. I actually am glad you colored in the other one. I know what you mean though. I have in my opinion ruined MANY a thing by coloring where I should have let it be.Thanks again. Nice work
Comment: gorgeous atc,thank you sooo much and the extras are just what i need for a card i'm making,i was in the middle of making it when the post arrived,talk about good timing!,thanks again for a great swap,all the best lizxx
Comment: HEARTS! HEARTS! HEARTS!....and more awesome HEARTS!!! What a superb package both inside and out.. LOVIN the mail art envie and the paper asst is fantastic. Off to post photos on my flickr site. Thanks a bunch!!
Comment: Hello Katherine,
Thank you for the two very unique and very special green ATCs. I received them on Feb. 10th in great condition. I appreciate your patience and understanding with regard to my slowness in getting your rating done for this swapl I like how you used varied materials and techniques but the same color to come up with two very unique ATCs. I like the torn paper backgrounds that you did in all shades of green. I look forward to adding your 2 green ATCs to my ever-growing and ever-changing ATC Collection. Even more specifically, it will be added to the "Colors of the Ranbow" Series. I look forward to swapping with you more often during 2010. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping.
Comment: Hello Katherine,
Thank you for the 2 purple ATCs, one representing "Love"and one representing "They both will be nice additions to my "Colors of the Rainbow Series," and to my ATC Collection in general. I appreciate your understanding and patience with me with regard to the slowness in getting your rating done. I hope we have more opportunities to swap with one another during 2010. Happy February and Happy Swapping!!!!
Comment: hello again partner! :) these atcs are so beautiful. and VERY inspiring words to go with the visual inspiration of it. plus the extra ribbon you sent will be coming in handy soon so thank you.
Comment: Nice creative use of the white thread flower trim & clear stones with words 'LOVE' & 'PEACE.' TY for packaging in bubble envelope so no damage would happen while in transit & also for the extra base of background for my use. What medium did you use to create the base background? Paint? You also have me for Red & Yellow which I'm looking forward to.
Response: The base was cut from one of my large handmade paper collages that I normally use in my framed artwork - it's simply paper and matte medium. :-) I'm so glad you liked it! :-) The red ATCs were cut from the same kind of sheet, but the yellow's completely different. Hope you like them all! :-)
Comment: This was a lovely package to receive. First the envie you sent the envies in was so awesome and well decorated. I love the materials you used but I must say that those wallpaper samples are the coolest - they are textured and just really really awesome. Lastly the way you thought to add the double stick tape stuff to the flap of the enive was such a good idea. Thanks so much for being a great swap partner.
Comment: Thanks for the great card. What a smile. I have a Westie who is a real joy.
Hope you have a healthy and happy new year. Sorry to be so late rating. I have not been able to rate. Your friend, Linda
Comment: HI Katherine, thank you so much for the very very nice stamps. An extra thanks for the extra ones. They are all great and from some countries I didn't have one, so you made the collection grow. Thanks!!
Comment: Thanks for the card. The weather in TN is not much warmer than yours this first week of the New Year. Lows in the teens and highs rarely above freezing. I was in southern Ms for the holidays where the temps were in the 60's and I want to be there now.
Comment: Katherine, wouldn't you know it, the very next day after I messaged you your napkins arrived and they are wonderful! I'm sorry for the delay in rating you, but please know I am very happy with what I received
Comment: Hi Katherine, Thank you for my youtube smiles! The talking dog was a little creepy hehe, but I do wish I had a dog like that.! I love the last one. It had me in stitches. Thanks again,
Sheri Trifle x
Comment: I spent all day today in the hospital hooked up to IVs, and when I checked my mail on the way home, your package was there :) I loved EVERYTHING, and you did SUCH an amazing job!! Thank you so much for making my very crappy day so much better :D
Comment: Thank you so much for the package of wonderful crafting goodies. I really love everything, but especially love the envelope of brads,etc., the small tags, and the foreign language book pages. GO BUCKEYES! :)
Comment: Your ATC is stunning! I am going to a craft camp this weekend and intend to show it off as I don't think the ladies will have seen ATC's before. Thank you too for the snowman extras - I love them.
Comment: Oh My Gosh - I LOVE the B&W card you made me!!! Thank you so much for putting forth the effort! It is greatly appreciated!! You "almost" make me want to do more swaps here. (I haven't had the best of luck with partners thus far) And the stamps ---- thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I'm going to have so much fun with those!!! =D
Comment: What a GREAT package you pulled together without needing to spend a cent minus the mailing. Did you decorate the envy or was it a recycled one? It is NEAT! I will be able to use the cow ephemera. I LOVE the chipboard. Thanks! :)
Comment: Thank you for such a big bundle of lovely ribbons and paper! And your envelope was just gorgeous - what a thrill to find it in my box along with the big bill that was there too :( Guess which was my favourite - not the big bill LOL - thanks for making my day
Comment: This has to be one of the best swap packages I've ever received! All of the postal employees between Michigan and
Texas had to enjoy this one! I want to frame this wonderful envelope collaged with birds!!! It's such a treasure! And I love all the goodies inside. My granddaughter was here when it arrived and we both had a great time going through everything. Thank you so very much. I wish I could give you 100 hearts!!!
Comment: wooooo hooooo!! i got this atc the 2nd time around. :) thanks so much. it's adorable and i love it. i'm giving you a heart for being so great about the resending. silly mail for losing the first one. have a great one!
Comment: I've rcvd your ATC and it is 'magnifique!' :o) Merci! (those are about it for frenchy words for me!) I love how elegant it looks! Thank you! Also, what kind of board did you use for yours...I really like the thickness/sturdiness of it? Thanks again!
Comment: Hello Katherine,
If there is a rating of more than 5 I be glad to give it to you. The ATCs are just fantastic - I SO LOVE IT! Thank so very much. And to your question about COFFEE I that's a good idea lets do coffee theme (hahaha) I enjoyed reading your little note also and seems that we do have lots in common. My hubby just left for deployment last week and he will be away for 8 and half months I am sure you can relate to what I am saying.. let me know when the coffee swaps starts. Once again thank you for your great work.
Comment: Katherine, I will be sending you a postcard soon...my older son John is an artist too and he wants to make it for you (for the handmade postcard swap). He is the one that gets most of my postcards since he collects them...but he's not getting this one, I LOVE IT! Thank you so much!!!! Lynnie
Comment: Thank you SO much for the lovely skinny you sent me, it is AMAZING!
I am VERY lucky to have been your partner! I absolutely love ALL the extras you sent me, I am going to use the red rooster to decoupage my kitchen wooden stool! The other rooster and owl images are jsut as incredible, I wish I could give you more than hearts! Thank you again for your generosity.
Comment: The amount of thought you put in to this swap was very much appreciated. I really liked all the neat things, and how you worked so hard to fit my profile. I love all the lab stuff. I would give you 100 hearts, if I could.
Comment: Wow Katherine!! I just opened the swap package you sent to me and I am speechless girl!! I was so over joyed with all of the goodies you sent to me that it brought tears of happiness and joy to my eyes!! This is without a doubt, one of the Best swap package that I have ever received!!

Comment: Wow! These are great! This is why I absolutely love Sunflowers. Thanks for the cuttings of paper and stamp. I'll probably never use them because I could never part with them. Thanks again Katherine.
Comment: Where is the button for the 1000 hearts?!? ;)
The package is so great. I can't tell what I love most, everything is wonderful. You picked so many lovely things for me...this made my day perfect!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Comment: Your card was beautiful! So much texture and the colours were perfect! I can tell you really put a lot of time in on it. Thank you! And thank you too for the extras the button was beautiful and Ben will most likely put the sticker on his drawing case!
Comment: Katherine, You are such a cool lady! I truly wish we were friends. I bet there's so much you could teach me about the places you've been and the life you've lived! I can't believe we're practically the same age and you've done so much more in life than I have! Thanks for being so open in your survey answers!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your very ORGANIZED letter. You have it down to the penny! Thanks for the stationary. I need to write a note to a friend who is a shoe lover, she will adore the card.
Happy New Year. Go and play the lottery, you never know!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful package! It arrived a few days ago but I've been away until now. I adore the green ribbons of course :D And the animal print papers and stuff are gorgeous! I can't wait to use them! There was a lot more than just that, but I didn't want to leave you too much of a novel on here :P Thank you very much and Merry Christmas to you and yours! Happy Swapping in the New Year too!
Comment: WOW!!! What a package! So much stuff to choose from, I don't know where to start. Very well stocked! And, I get to keep the stuff that is left, which is plenty!! Thank you, thank you :-D. I shall have your ATC back to you as soon as I can. Please send me a msg when you receive it. Cheers. Have a heart, you definately deserve it!!
Comment: LOVE the ATC! Did you use metal mesh behind a metal-edged sticker? I can't quite make out your technique, but it's LOVELY! Many thanks!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I cut the copper-colored leaves out of fabric - the fabric was sheer, and the leaves appeared to be embossed on the fabric, so when I cut them out, they looked great! Glad you liked it!
Comment: katherine, i received your package today, as i open the envelop many AMAZING butterflys fly out of it. i love tham all and they will use me well.
i give you credit on your hard and thoroughly work on finding so many. love the card. thank you for amazing and wonderful swap. iris
Comment: dear moonswings, thank you so much for the GREAT package -- i really like everything you sent me -- thanks so much for reading my profile so carefully and sending me such cool things. the fish images are super, as is everything else -- did you know that the text on the skeleton keys (all of which are really groovy -- i love them!) is dutch? that's a funny coincidence (or did you send that on purpose?). the tarot images are also really useful and interesting. i send you multiple hearts <3 <3 <3!! :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautifull paper and ATC. WOW!!! it is so perfect you are so talended. How much time did you spend on this swap? I also like to use wall paper backgrounds. Thank you very much. The best swap I ever had!!!
Comment: ***GO BUCKEYES*** LOL!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these ATC's!! Thanks for sending them to me!!! Wow...it's amazing all the things we have in common!!! Thanks for the "BLUE" paper too!! (you did that on purpose...hahaha!!!)
Comment: Thanks So much for the Wondeful Atcs!!! you are really talented!! The cards all were very detailed and each paper gave its own unique texture. The illumated Manuscripts are a great idea, these reall ad to the peice!! Thanks Agian for everything
Comment: I love my insect ATC - It's not "creepy" at all. I backgound paper is great Is it russian? The paper/wire flowers are pretty I'm curious about the adhesive - Did you make them ?
Response: I'm so glad you like the ATC! :) Yes, I think the background paper was Russian. The wire flowers were made by punching flower shapes from a variety of paper, then adhering two sets of them (back to back) with a double-sided sticky square, sticking the wire between the two.
Comment: How fun to find someone else in town on swap-bot. Thanks for the (speedy!!) ATC, and the wired flowers. My 5yo is wondering how you made those. :^)
Response: Hi Neighbor! RE: the wired flowers - I used various paper punches and Sissix & Cuttlebug dies to cut out the flower shapes from papers, then adhered them to one another with double-sided adhesive, sticking the wire between the two halves. It was fun - and kids would have a blast making them. Hope we meet someday! :)
Comment: I would like you to know I had some work to find exactly what swap I should register the postcard you have sent me. I am participating in a couple of swaps.
In spite of that, I love it!
Very interesting work! My first one ATC.
Comment: thank you for the beautifu AUTUMN card! I love it. I did have a hard time finding which swap it was for (as you didn't include that info on the back), haha... but it didn't take too long. Thanks!
Comment: A lovely ATC, also a very pretty fishy envelope I shall post a photo of them on my flickr site it's great, thankyou very much..look forward to swapping with you again in the future.regards Barbara
Comment: Thank you! I really like the snowflake. I don't know that I have the patience to string beads to make them! And thank you so very much for all the pretty, pretty lilacs and fern embellishments. I have never seen little ferns like those in the store before. Those are just beautiful
Comment: Besides the lovely paper you sent me, and the beautiful letter, I want to let you know how touched I was by your words, considering my own background. I was wondering if you would mind if I wrote back to you... If not, that you for sharing your honesty and strength with me... I know you will find your way my friend...
Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. :) I'm so glad you liked the paper - and I would LOVE to correspond. I'll email you...
Comment: You made such beautiful ATC's. I am tickled to add them to my collection. Thanks also for the thoughtful extras. I am going to have to fight my daughter for them since she loves butterflies too. :)
