Comment: Your beautiful artwork was a HUGE success as a Christmas gift for my husband. The sketch looks amazing in a black frame with a wide mat. So BEAUTIFUL, THOUGHTFUL, and PERSONAL! (The perfect gift, I must say.) Thank you SO much for swapping with me! <3 <3 <3
Comment: These arrived and I have to say that I love everything! The ornaments look adorable and you did such a good job on painting them. Thank you for the necklace as well as the little parts (charms) as time goes on I should have enough for a charm bracelt for a gift! Thank you for everything!
Comment: Jazmyn all I can freakin' say is OMG! What talent you have. I ab-so-toot-ly LOVE them both. I can not beleive how talented you are! The canvas must be killer! Thanks so so so much for the GREAT drawings! WOW WOW WOW 1000 hearts!
Response: Oh I'm so glad you like her! She's currently sitting under four phone books while trying to be flattened out... I finally bought proper staples for my staple gun so maybe I won't ruin anymore paper! lol! Enjoy :D
Comment: 30 minutes a day is a straightforward and simple goal to work on, and I think it's perfect! It's my goal too, I think I forgot to mention that. A lifetime of this will make a world of differnce! And keeping the sweets out of the house is key! If I can resist buying it, that's at LEAST 75% of the battle won already!! Thanks for organizing this! Will go join the group!!
Comment: AWWWW, she is so pretty! I love it! You really do put your heart and soul into your work. Thank you so much! Sorry about the client you are having to deal with. Hope things get back to normal for you soon. You are an awesome artist, love the fairies you included. Thank you Thank you thank you! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the promotional anime cards. In all honesty, I enjoy the fact that there's so many doubles. One of each will be framed and placed upon my wall as to where the others can and probably will be used for arts and crafts projects. Currently, I've been measuring them and will be shopping for their frames very soon. While I love all of them, I can't help but love the Baccano one the most. That one shall be hung on the wall in the master's bedroom, haha. Again, thank you so much. You're such a sweetie, Jazmyn!
Comment: Oh my, this is so lovely and perfect!!! Thank you so much for swapping with me, I'm so proud to have this gorgeous piece of art hanging in my home :) I have your bag ready to go out..thank you again for swapping with me! I couldn't love it any more than I do!! <3
Response: I'm so glad you love it! :D Canadian shipping can be so iffy sometimes I was worried it might come in bent! I'm excited to see the bag (and I've updated my address!) Thank you for swapping with me as well :D
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your answers, I enjoyed all of it. I had family think I was weird too since I still love anime and I collect comic books. You are a strong person and I am glad to have gotten the chance to read your e-mail ♥.
Response: Aw, thank you so much! I only realized after I got my first email in return that we only had to write ONE story, not THREE, so I'm glad you enjoyed them...eh heh heh...heh... My bad.
Comment: I really liked reading your stories! Even though I don't know that much about comic books, I think I teared up a little at the end. The second story was pretty depressing, but mainly because I completely understand about the job thing. I too am in the middle of a lousy job/rut in my life, but I'm hoping to fix it soon. Thanks so much for sharing little bits of your life with me.
P.S. I believe in the supernatural too!
Response: Thank you so much! I only realized after I got my first email in return that we only had to write ONE story, not THREE, so I'm glad you enjoyed them...eh heh heh...heh... My bad.
Comment: Thank you so much, I really loved it! And don't worry, I didn't get offended that you changed my eye color at all! In fact, I always wished I had blue eyes... so you actually made my dream come true. ;)
Response: Oh phew! I was so worried when I finished it that you might have been offended, and thinking I should maybe go with a fantasy color like purple haha. glad you liked it!
Comment: Receive my buttons today! Thanks so much for including the calendar for my son! And thank you as well for the four amigurumi patterns! Thye will definitely get used often! It was great swapping with you. Let me know if you'd like to do it again :)
Comment: I got it! It arrived and before Christmas too =D
Annoyingly, the package came bent and so there is a huge crease running across the print =/ but I plan on trying to iron it out so I am sure it will be fine! Thankyou for adding the extra bits of paper and going to all the trouble of trying to find the candy hehe, I am resisting eating them all now. Thankyou hun, I look forward to swapping again with you soon =D X
Response: I'm SO glad it came in! But wow, it's shitty that it came bent.... Let me know if you can't get the crease out and I will send you a high resolution image of it that can be printed if you'd like? Either way, I'm really happy it made it's way to you!!
Comment: I opened it up already because I can't take it with me to ontario (I'm packing light cause I have to take a bus when I get to toronto) and I wont be back till jan 7th. Thank you very much, The soup and cookie mixes are great cause I don't have ingredients to make homemade food, The markers and ink will be handy for my work. The journal and calendar is cute.Yum at ginger bread man in cookie cutter, I'll make some tea and eat him tonight.The bracelets very pretty.Thank you, for the lotion and transformers ornament too and thank logan for the spiderman candy.
Comment: Note:I tried to give you a heart, it's not letting me. Must be a site bug, it's done that to me before, I'll see if I can add a heart letter.
Thank you, I'll send you a reply letter later.
Response: Wow! I was starting to think this got lost in the mail, Swap-Bot never sent me an email saying I'd been rated for it! I'm glad it got to you okay, and yah I wasn't able to rate someone with a heart a little while ago either. Glitchy site!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty hand made card. I'll add a reply to my #2 letter I was going to send #2 the other day but the photo machine at the pharmacy was broken again so I need to find another one.
Comment: I am SO going to enjoy your package! I do like anime, but I know very little about it, and hadn't heard of most of the series you included the promo cards for. And I can't wait to watch the badly subtitled movie...funny subtitles are just great! And the stickers and stationery are wonderful - I am definitely getting addicted to cute, unusual papers, and can't find anything like that here. Thanks so much for a very fun swap!
Comment: I absolutely L-O-V-E-D my vintage bread recipe book! The amount of effort which went into it makes it a treasure and we will really enjoy trying the recipes!
There is a tutorial on the internet on how to turn old hardcover books into journals by using the covers and inserting an inexpensive journal or notebook into sleeves on the inside covers -- you did really well on your first try!
Response: I'm so glad you love it! I was very excited to try and make the book, and I thought it came out quite well :D I was terrified that with my luck it would wind up lost in the mail! lol
Comment: I was so HAPPY when I opened your package!!! I can't thank you enough for your generosity or tell you how lucky I was to have you for one of my partners :) Thanks for the handmade items; you're so talented! I really appreciate the coupon - I'll definitely visit your shop & use it!! I can't wait. If only I could give you a better rating =))
Comment: When Jaz says 'packed', she means 'one ATC-backing away from exploding in your mother's mailbox'. I don't think she could've shoehorned in another piece of paper without using either telekinesis or vacuum-packing.
The tea smells good enough to make a lingerie sachet out of - can't wait to try it - and my Kitkat was very happy with her glittery stickers - so thoughtful of you. You are both generous and creative and I hope we'll continue swapping (let's do an art-focus private project some time!) in the future!
Response: HAHAHA! You should have seen the sticker destash swap I just sent out. I think she was a little surprised when she got it too lol. But yes, there is no fun unless it is PACKED and I have to wiggle the last few pieces in hehe
I think an art focus swap one day would be a great idea :D
Comment: I was already excited to get a package from the wonderful artist who'd done the infamous "blue girl"...and I wasn't dissapointed! It was so nicely packaged, and thoughtful, and the tea is delicious! Thank you so much!
Response: Aw I wish I'd known that I'd have sent you some Bendy magnets or something lol :D
Comment: Great idea for your magnets! I have always wanted to try rooibois tea but didn't want to shell out for a whole box in case I didn't like it. Recipe cards always work for me too, and the ones you sent are all keepers! Thx very much dear! Hugs, Terry
Response: Sadly I can't completely take credit for the magnets XD I was going to make you a dotee and had painted the face then let it sit on the magnet to dry. My mother was visiting and she went off about the "cute magnet" I had sitting on the table. After looking at it we decided they look awesome as magnets haha! I'm glad you like the mini package :D
Comment: I love the drawing. If ever we're in a swap again do not worry about what you send me. I'm not easily offended and a stripper would have been fine. The drawing I sent my partner was a nude. The ginger tea would have made me laugh! I'm thinking about collecting all my ginger teas and turning them into some kind of art. Thank you again for the drawing!
Comment: You picked beautiful papers and were so generous with them, too! (While it's always great to open parcels from the people who meticulously bag and wrap each group of items, there is something so spontaneous and fun in just 'dumping' out the bounty of colours and shapes and scraps all over one's desk and delighting in running one's hands through it!) I loved your choices, and honestly can't tell which ones you thought might not be my style (though I loved your reasons for including them deliberately. I need MORE artistic challenges, so thank you!) And I'm very jealous of your beautifully-designed promo and name cards - that Victorian flourish in those warm browns.... they're going up on my bulletin board! Hugs and hearts,
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! It was a wonderful swap :D If you can use my address labels for any sort of crafting let me know, if we move in the next few months and i have some left over I'll send them to you :D
Comment: You so ROCK! Thank you for not only sending me an awesome magician, but for sending me additional cards too. Ironically, the Hermit is very special to me too - I am very honored to have received it too.
Comment: I was so happy to see an envie from you in my mailbox today ... It finally showed up!!! It was worth the wait - I can't even tell you how incredible your labyrinth is! Thank you for all the little extras: I'm drinking the tea right now! I hope you'll love living in NB, I've lived on the west coast briefly, but returned here 'cause I like the weather, people and pace of life. I haven't been to Memramcook for years. They mostly speak French their right? My French is terrible, and my side of the river is mostly English. Do you speak French? Okay, okay ... I just reminded myself that this isn't a letter :p Thanks Jaz!
Response: HAHA well you're about to get two, I just sent out the replacement last week lol!
I don't speak french but my husband is trilingual so he's my translator when I need one :D haha!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome package- it definitely succeeded in making my day. I have a serious sticker flake addiction =D
Response: I'm glad you liked it! That swap actually worked out great for me since it was cheaper to get the seller to ship to you directly then for me to use my sticker packs and ship to you from here haha! and they were SO cute!
Comment: Oh dear I am SO sorry for the late rating. I really and truly thought I had left a rating. I got the DVD safe 'n sound and it is surprisingly... something I DON'T have and have been thinking about picking up! So yay! Thank you very much! :D
Comment: I told my son that the things that came in this swap would be for fun. He happens to love pencils and there were so many, he was so happy! I loved the cute socks, mama is keeping those :) And there was enough candy to bribe my oldest for at least a few weeks. Thank you!
Comment: The doll is absolutely gorgeous! I love the detail on her 'body' and the colors you chose were lovely. Thank you for putting so much work into this doll. I have put her up on my 'inspiration' board. You have an amazing talent!
