Comment: Great ATC-I thing your ODD CHARACTERS are part of the same line of stamps I use for my return address label-Crafty Lady. And what a haul of goodies you sent me-thanks very much for sharing and swapping!
Response: Wow thanks for rating me a 1 and not contacting me first to let me know this never arrived. I've only had stuff go missing a couple of times but ALWAYS re-send. I do angels, I am the host of not only this swap but have hosted MANY MANY others as well as running a group, so thanks for not being logical and letting me know this didn't arrive first before rating so I could re-send.
Comment: Great ATC, loved it! Thanks for the fun extras too, and by the way I loved the cute Vampire on the envelope, I am cutting him out and plan to use him on a future project! Happy Holidays! Hope to trade with you more in 2012! xoxo
Comment: What a fun little journal to read!! Do you recall what you wrote on 10/09? I hope you got a good one. Ha! Ha! What a clever idea for the binding and buckle. Your journal is darliing. Thank you for sharing with me.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful vintage ATC. I saw the image myself and liked it and I am glad I have a card made for me with it. I like the rounded corners and it is sooo elegant! And it was very nice of you to send the extras- oh and I liked the clear envelope!! Theresa :)
Response: You're welcome, I mostly like the pic because of the poem and goblins!
Comment: So far I have only read 14 of your lists and am laughing so much and wondering about you, like the list of things you aren't supposed to eat...ALSO would you like to be penpals? I have a feeling you are a silly crazy awesome type of person! Good penpal type!
Response: =) I'm really glad you like it so far! I did stuff about me but I also wanted some out of the box type lists to keep it interesting. We can absolutely be penpals! Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you. It is always interesting to see so many Atcs by different people in one go. Gives you lots to think about. I can certainly see why some are pass ons but one man's treasure .... as they say! I never throw away someone's efforts just because they don't appeal to me so I hope you keep going with these swaps. Cheers
Response: You're welcome, I hope you found something you might like. I keep participating in "pass on" swaps because I've found some great ATCs that some people pass on so you never know! Enjoy!
Comment: My 9 year old son was the one who did this swap and he just LOVED your cards. He said to tell you THANK YOU very much for everything. If I could rate over 5 I would. Thank you again.
Response: I don't think kids are allowed to do the swaps unless it says so, and I don't feel comfortable knowing they went to a 9 year old child, but hopefully YOU the adult liked them, thanks for rating.
Comment: Okay, I confess! I was a bad, bad girl and opened all of my gifts today, over two weeks before I was supposed to open the first one. *blush* I rationalized it by thinking about how I could use everything NOW to decorate or craft with. So when my grandson (from next door) came over I let him open it all, one by one, in order. Quinn, there was not a single thing in there that did not make me very, very happy. The little felt monsters, the yummily scented candle, the book, the Halloween Tweedles atc, the MINI PUMPKIN SEEDS, and the gorgeous witch DOLL!!!! And all the rest. It was a great assortment of gifts. Thank you so much! :)
Response: LOL! Other people I know in the swap have been "sneaking" presents lol I have so far controlled myself but I am decorating my house now and putting them out on my decorated table and they are just begging to be opened. I'm really glad you liked everything! And so true that you can use everything now, I may just have to use that excuse and open mine, hee hee. Happy Halloween!
Comment: nice swap and nice extras..The beautiful stone made the PO rate it as a parcel tho--and charge me 1.27 cents more..not for weight but the heights thing they slide the letters through....I went to question them and thats what they showed me.....I only want to tell you so you might be careful to not put in a tall thing..It is pretty and worth the $1.27 to me....they also managed to break the shell...oh well chalk it up to the post office.....*sigh* I will rate you high anyway but the PO gets a #1 for this swap lol lol
Response: Oh no! I feel terrible I will make it up and postage will definitely be covered. Thank you for letting me know too so I can make sure I put appropriate postage on my other swaps!
Comment: WOW, Quinn, now I know what an ATC is SUPPOSED to look like! Yours is amazing! I love the teeny tiny tear dripping out of the buttonhole. What great detail. And thanks too for the cool stamped images and envelope of minuscule pebbles! Great swap, dear! Thank you so much!
Response: Your ATC talents are great too! I'm glad you liked it!
Comment: Got package yesterdy .Man that was fast ! I cheated and opended a couple !!! I LOVE the skull Necklace ! and the little terror cards !! My son got into them hehe so it was his fault I got into them. I started working on your goodies last night. It was fun thinking of things to make. Thanks again !
Response: Wow that was fast! Glad you liked what you saw so far, hope you like the rest! Enjoy!
Comment: I received a monster head, no body, no arms, no legs....does not really meet the swap description of sending a monster. Though kinda cute, also poorly made with the eye almost falling off.
Response: You're welcome
"Right in time for Halloween, make your 1 partner, a stuffed mini monster using your fabric scraps or felt leftovers. Please no larger then 6 inches. All stuffing and materials should be clean and free from wierd smells, etc."
Comment: Got your envelope dear friend. Unfortunately it was torn open in the mail - but I am absolutely sure that what ever you did it was fabulous - I have all the masterpieces you send my way earlier :-) UH - WOW - You re-send :-) Thank you so much dear friend; I absolutely love it! Your ATC s fabulous, and I am very proud to have this beauty in my collection as well.
Response: I'm so sorry that happened I am resending ASAP, here is what you WOULD have received:
Comment: Love it! What an adorable ATC! I'm going to have to snag some of your ideas! Adore the used envie and all the little goodies inside (especially the puffy butterflies!). You obviously took the time to read my profile. Thank you!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything!
Comment: Quinn, thank you so much for the Alice in Wonderland atc. It's really a nice one. Thank you also for all the great extras you sent. I absolutely LOVE the earrings. What kind of stones are those? Any particular kind? Also, the paper elements are all things I can't wait to use. And the cool handmade envelope it all came in was great. Thanks again.
Response: You're welcome!
The earrings are gemstone chips. Enjoy!
Comment: I'm so glad you shared with me! I was actually in Phoenix earlier this summer! I loved getting in the pool and getting out and actually having dry heat to dry me off. Here in MD its so humid that we can never get dry lol. I got a great tan while I was there! Thanks for joining and happy swapping!
Comment: Egyptian art has always been one of my favorites. Your portrayal of Nefertiti the most famous Egyptian queen besides Cleopatra was beautiful and elegant. Thanks so much for a atc I will treasure.
Response: You're very welcome.
Comment: Thank you for the sexy ATC :) I really like the fur you added to the wolf. But most of all, I think I would like to come across that wolf :) :) :) I liked the ATC jacket you made and the outer envelope-very creative, as well and your note!! And thank you for the extras. A VERY NICE package. You are too nice Theresa :)
Response: I'm glad you liked everything!
Comment: The note is lovely and I loved seeing the things that make you happy written write on the envelope. The postcards do make me happy. The ones that I don't collect I can pass on. I already have ideas of who to send some to so that I can pass on the happiness.
Comment: Hi Quinn...first of all I loved the envelope. It cracked me up because I'm working on an altered book and used a similiar page yesterday. Your note was really appreciated. Great ATC...I love all the tibits you got on the card...thanks, Sheryl
Comment: LOVE my little skullies! Especially their button eye(s). I agree about having halloween decos all the time, in fact I leave a lot of my stuff up all year inside. Also, don't apologize for your cursive handwriting, I don't think most people even remember how to do anything but text with their hands. :OP
Comment: Thanks a lot. I love the ATCs. Hope you like the ones I made too.
Response: You're welcome and thank you for helping me complete the series!
Comment: Hi BambooPanda13!:) Thanks for your awesome Gorey "I"ATC. What kind of lettering did you use on the top...for the "I is for Ida"? Are they dry transfer? I like the texture. I love those tiny rhinestones too. Thanks for the extras...you really ARE serious about recycling....the turned inside out envie...clever. And thanks for hosting the Gorey series...I can't wait to sign up for the letter J. Happy Swapping!Ciao!:)
Response: Happy you like it! They are glitter alphabet stickers. Glad you are having fun with the series!
Comment: Such a beautiful ATC, Quinn...your work continues to amaze me. Every ATC truly is a little piece of art. I am lucky to be the recipient! Thank you so much for putting your heart and soul into each little artwork.
Response: I'm very happy you like this, I wasn't sure if it was too simple or not. Thank you!
Comment: great stuff!! i have used a lot of it so far. my daughters have grabbed the feather hair clips too. and those fabric book mark things you made..? i adore them!! i have one on my key ring, i sewed one to one of my art journals and i have the other two attached to my art case.. =0)
Response: I'm so glad you like everything and it can be put to good use!
Comment: I love the ATCs that you've made for me! Oh gosh, they are just wonderful! The strange mermaid-fish creature has to be one of my all-time favorites. :] Thank you so much!
Response: I'm glad you liked them, I wanted to give you some different themes!
Comment: Firstly, I love the theme of the swap :D I've grown up watching this movie and now I love the parody-,Wicked (book and musical), as well. Your ATCs are gorgeous and intricate! They're all so very cute~! My fave would have to be the lion, so darling<3
Response: I'm really glad you like them!
Comment: thanks Quinn, what a great way to use an old family photo, I love knowing their names, even if we know nothing more about them! And I liked the way you put the quote on the back of the pic- very clever!
Response: I'm really glad you like it!
Comment: What a nice surprise, love all the mini notebooks. How did you make them?
Response: I'm glad you like them! I used a really strong glue, some cardstock printed paper scraps I had, and then just made them. Held the spines together with mini paperclips that are like clamps. Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you for the great swap - loved the envelope. Everything was excellent, except the note was a little brief - I would have loved to hear more about your day :). You made up for it in other ways, like the extra goodies I could use to decorate all my envelopes! I especially love the little retro cut-outs. Thank you.
Response: I'm glad you liked everything! The cut-outs are from vintage magazines I have from the 40's! enjoy!
Comment: Your ATC arrived safe and sound ;)
I like this ATC. It's not something I would make, but I think it's kinda "shabby chic"-ish.
Be on the look out for my sticker lovers ATC in the mail. I have you for a partner again :)
Comment: I received this and your ATC was cute but the envelope was badly ripped up and I had to pay an extra 25 cents for postage due.
Response: I'm really sorry about that I had covered the entire envelope in tape and not sure why it wasn't returned to me for more postage?
Response: Well I hope you liked it, I was trying to be more creative than just gluing stuff to the paper like the example picture. And they were on string so yeah, they would get a little tangled...
Comment: This is great! When I opened the envelope and looked inside, I totally thought someone sent me a pair of socks, and I was like "What the hell swap did I sign up for to get a pair of socks??" And then when I took the "socks" out and realized it was a dotee, I died laughing. She is hilarious, I love her! Is she made from a sock? Coolest dotee!
Also I like your profile and I think I just mailed you an ATC yesterday. :D I feel like I'd get along better with you than with most of the people on swap-bot... there's a lot of really sweet and wholesome conservative mainstream types on here lol.
Response: I'm glad you like it, it is my first one and I wasn't sure how to make a face and didn't want her to be a voodoo doll or something. Yes she is made from a sock but no worries they were brand new! I cut the feet ends off ankle high socks to make them leg warmers. =) I'm glad you liked it, gives me courage to try out another dotee swap and get better!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome Alice in Wonderland game! I am anxious to find someone who will be willing to play with me and try it out! I can tell you put a lot of time and effort into making this. Thanks!
Response: I'm glad you like it, it was so fun to make!
Comment: She did a great Job:) And made a little ATC holder for my cards.
Response: glad you like them!
Comment: I loved everything about this package! The handmade envie was awesome, and all the extras <3 And the ATC itself kicks ass! The chain was a fantastic touch. Thank you so much, I want to shower you with hearts!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it I had a lot of fun making it!
Comment: Hi Quinn! It finally arrived yesterday afternoon (I was unable to access the internet and rate), the re-sent one. Cute, thanks for resending I know it wasnt your fault the first one didnt arrive. Have a lovely weekend! x Adri
Comment: I LOVE the ATCs you sent! Thank you! Scooby Doo and Shaggy have been a favorite of mine for years and the PB&J one is very clever! Thanks for the extra goodies too!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! They were fun to make!
Comment: Uh - WOW - today was like Christmas when I opened my mail.... Thank you so much for the stunningly beautiful ATC - I love it! Thank you also for all the extras. The earrings are really something - I love the combination of black and pink :-) Thank you so much for making my day so special.
Comment: Hi Thank you for the cute love birds.. My son and daughter in law just got married last week and are always singing and playing music to each other so this card reminds me of them..Your envelope and the clip are great too.. i will not lose all my lists of swapbot to dos with the clip and i just love creative envies. Thank you. BetsyLute
Comment: Did not follow swap requirements. Swap stated "List your favorite color here." and this was not the color sent. My profile also states what my **favorite** color is but this was disregarded. I offered not to rate but the sender decided to put rude comments on the swap page as a result. Edit: I love how you think it is rude that I rate correctly when you put comments on the swap page. I did not refuse a resend. I said it was your choice and if you chose not to send then I would not rate but obviously that was not ok with you with the comment you left on the swap page. It's funny that you call me a liar when you are the one that seems to have problems. To you everyone that doesn't do what you want is 'rude'. BTW, I've swaped with AynE before, she's a great swapper and sends awesome stuff!
Response: Wow this was from March, how rude of you even after I explained how I made a mistake because I looked at your profile first and forgot to look at the listed colours. I offered MULTIPLE times to re-send and you kept saying "no" so I don't know why you are being rude and now rating down when you chose not to accept a re-send. And now you are lying saying you refused a re-send, if I could post the full messages here I would. You are the kind of person who makes swapping not fun, someone tries to make something right and you choose not to let them. You should get together with AynE and both of you can have fun being rude together.
Comment: I am rating the 3 because this was a resend, and while the second ATC showed effort and thought, part of any swap requirement is making sure that the swap arrives in good condition using adequate postage. You put the ATC in a previously used thin paper envelope, using white out to cover up the old address. You put a 2006, 39 cent stamp on it. The envelope arrived ripped and torn, damaging the ATC inside and 25 cents postage due.
I received a lecture from the postal clerk about reusing envelopes and that white out tends to get stuck in their automatic sorting machines, damaging the envelopes and requiring them to clean the sorting rollers. The reason I got it at all was because the zip code and my first name were not in the smeared white-out portions of the address, so it arrived in Kodiak and because they know me personally they knew who to give it too after I gave them 25 cents. I was willing to let this go, and simply not rate you rather than rate the 3. What has prompted me to do this is your comment about hoping that "my wild Irish hair falls out and that I suck." I do agree with the other statement, in the future I hope that you do avoid any swaps that I have signed up for, it would probably be mutually beneficial.
Regardless of whether I live in Alaska or just around the corner from you, part of the swap requirements are correct packaging and adequate postage, it is not a matter of pleasing me, it is a matter of policy.
Response: You were rude when you wrote me saying you didn't like my first ATC I was kind and still offered to re-send. The post office damaged the envelope even though it was completely covered in tape I can't be responsible for their actions. You aren't an easy person to get along with or to try and rectify a situation with. Below is the picture of the ATC I sent you that was damaged. Nothing more I can do since you said you give up and didn't want to be bothered with it anymore so I wasn't the one quitting on trying to make it right, you did. Thanks anyway, Erin go bragh.
My re-send ATC:
Comment: Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful :D I love the textures and words, and the mirror-like foil; and also the fact you do not show, merely suggest Dorian's face.
I also can't take my eyes off the bookmark you sent - the paper and stamps are gorgeous. And thank you once again for lowering the rating for me :) x
Response: Glad you liked it!
Comment: Thank you for the ATC and the bookmark! The ATC was cool it would never have occured to me to chose an animal character as my favourite villian! I used to have a coffee cup with Shere Khan on it ^w^
Response: super cool! Yea I was just recently watching the movie and when I saw it I thought he would be an un-typical villain!
Comment: This was totally different that what I was expecting, but I am delighted.
I was expecting a word description.
I love it though and I am going to hang it up somehwere!
Response: I'm glad you liked it, after I had sent my pictures out I realized I did it wrong and was supposed to write a description! Because of the title I kept thinking I had to draw something and I forgot about the writing part. So I'm sorry for no written description.
