Comment: You are so amazing! I love everything about this swap! First of all, I didn't want to open the envelope because I was afraid I would damage the cool artwork you did on it. The ATC is adorable! What a clever way to handle the tree theme! Thank you also for including "Orlando's Evening Out." Very, very nice!
Response: Oh what a nice comment! Thank you! I am happy!
Comment: Das war aber eine schöne Karte - vielen Dank! (Ich glaube, auf Deutsch sagt man KaKAO? Andererseits scheint KaKAO auch subtil anders zu sein als ATC und ACEO....) Danke auch für die Postkarte, und ich muss sagen, deine Swap-Visitenkarte gefällt mir auch gut!
Response: Danke schön! Von kakao hab ich noch nie gehört, klingt auch einfach sehr hölzern wenn man sich die deutschen Foren anschaut.
Comment: Thank you can't wait to open! Wow! what a wonderful envelope of goodies, the Atcs are just great you put so much work into them and they are a wonderful addition to my collection thank you love the postcard the mushrooms, tag and I love the dress card, and will use it as a stencil.

Response: No problem! Glad you got it and like! Thank you for your rating!
Comment: Cute ATC"s.. Thanks for the postcard, I like to get them from different countries. Willst du immer weiter schweifen? Sieh, das Gute liegt so nah. Lerne nur das Gluck ergreifen, Denn das Gluck ist immer da. What does this say?
Response: Glad you like! Thank you for your rating.
Comment: These inchies are awesome! I really like the glossy, raised petals of the flower. But your funny little face...it does not get better than that! SO cute! This was a happy mail day for sure. :-) Thank you very much!
Response: Cool! Glad you like both Inchies! Thank you for your rating!

Response: Thank you for this great rating! Glad you like them!
Comment: Hahahaha! Precious! (And no, I am NOT going to frame it. lol) Thx! Hugs, T(";) P.S. Thx for the great stamped images - I am going to come up with a swap to use them. I love them all but the owls are my favourite!
Response: Okay, at least you have to sell it for 25k! :) Thank you for your rating.
Response: *Talking to myself* Oh yeah, you were really excited what swap would be the 300th rating, what? Great you got such a great comment too! Oh yeah, I was so sure she would like it after reading her profile I thought the ATC would be a good fit. Uhm maybe she was offended cause I asked where her name comes from. Oh no! Everybody always ask me this question and I am not offended at all. Ok then I dont know what happened, maybe its a shy rater, I usually dont comment on ratings that dont comment about the swap, but I am a little pissed. HAPPY 300th RATING TO MYSELF! JUHU! --- Thank you for your rating.
Comment: OMG - Axinja this was awesome! I absolutely LOVE the sugar skull you made me! And I love all the beautiful tags and cards and papers...AND the tiny little octopus stamp is absolutely perfect! I have been wanting one that size for a long long time. Oh and the button that your room mate sent was awesome! Thank You Thank You Thank You! ♥♥♥♥♥
Response: Glad you liked everything! Hope you can use the tags for halloween deco or something else. I think I forgot to tell you greeting from my father ^^ He gave me the old postcards and stamps, the shaped ATC was a pain! I really struggled and I am happy you like the ATC!
Comment: Thank you thank you for a wonderful swap package! All the insert papers will be fun to use and your little ATC envelope is stunning (I'm stealing that pattern!!). I love both ATCs (esp. the koi) and you did a great job with the technique. So glad you joined my swap! <3<3<3<3<3 Oh yeah -- and the postage stamps you used are way cool!
Comment: Azinja, I lovvvveee the ATC's that you made using glossy accents. The backgrounds of each one are great,and detailed.I love the bird and fish image,the whole package is great! Thanks for the postcards too. I love the envie that you put the ATC's in,very creative.Thank you!
Response: Cool! I was happy to join the swap. I had fun to make them! Glad you liked everything! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much! They are even more lovely "in person" than they were on your flickr. I do love the koi images, and the lady will come in very useful, I think, for making ATC's for people who like vintage-y themes. It's a gap in my rubber stamp collection, so thank you! Lovely swap with a lovely partner!
Response: You got my mail fast! Glad you like everything! Thank you for your rating.
Comment: How can a simple "I have extra inchies already made" swap result in extravagant happiness? Swap with @Fatherted! 6 inchies - no, make that 7! And an extra ATC, just for fun (you make me want to go to Tuscany!) And tea, smelling spicy good! Thank you SO much!
Response: Glad you like everything :) Thank you for your rating.
Comment: BEAUTIFUL job on my altered 10's!!!! So nice to see your work in my mailbox again too!!!Love the way you presented these....Love the postcards..VanGogh is my favorite...........Thanks so much from the bottem of my heart......♥♥♥
Response: Thank you very much for this comment! Happy you like everything! Thank you for your rating.
Comment: I love it!!! Thank you so much. My coworker loves the stamps (I got them for his church group), and I love the postcard. My other coworker translated it for me. I am keeping it, and the stamps on the envelope, and that adorable little envelope the other stamps were in.
Response: Thank you. Glad you like everything! Thank you for your rating.
Comment: I love the inchies you made me!! Since I'm not into Kawaii at all, I have no idea if these are too Kawaii or not ~ as for too cute for me, I love cute and I love these!! They are so clever and absolutely adorable. . . love, love, love them! Thanks so much and happy swapping ~~
Response: I wasnt sure because of your profile. I dont think they are kawaii, maybe kawaiiish. Thanks for swapping with me and thank you for your rating.
Comment: These twinchies are adorable!! Did you draw that eeyore?? Hes awesome!! Thanks so much!!
Response: So happy you got them! Thanks for waiting and letting me resent! I searched for pictures of your favourite and transfered it to the Twinchies. i used watercolour pencils and mod podge. thank you for the rating :)
Comment: Thank you:). What is "Till Eulenspiegel" on the stamp? I'm guessing it means owl mirror, but what is the 500 years for? :D
Response: Till Eulenspiegel (German pronunciation: [tɪl ˈʔɔʏlənˌʃpiːɡəl], Low Saxon: Dyl Ulenspegel [dɪl ˈʔuːlnˌspeɪɡl̩]) was an impudent trickster figure originating in Middle Low German folklore. His tales were disseminated in popular printed editions narrating a string of lightly connected episodes that outlined his picaresque career, primarily in Germany, the Low Countries and France. He made his main entrance in English-speaking culture late in the nineteenth century as "Owlglass", but was first mentioned in English literature by Ben Jonson in his comedic play The Alchemist. --- 500 years because the story was published around 1512. ------------------------------------------Thank you for your rating.
Comment: Got it today. Thank you for everything :)) Specially for history of Berlin wall PC. PS. 2nd deco came today so I'll be working on it over weekend and can send you both deco and labels next week.
Response: Thanks for swapping with me and thanks for your rating!
Comment: Love the peacock picture? Where did you find it? Is there a bigger one? :) PS. I know about that site, I downloaded all of their samples and will be making myself a printout as a sample book. Do you want me to send you one printout when I'm done? ;)
Comment: Ah, The Magic Flute - love that particular song, it is amazing how the human voice can produce such sound! Have you ever seen this Honda commercial?
Thx for the craft links too dear. Terry (";)
Comment: My apologies for a late rating. I found the ATC on Flickr, and remember it now. I hope I have time this weekend to tear my apartment apart to look for it. My ATC books aren't even where they belong right now. :'( No more swaps for me until my schedule is kinder--as I can't even keep track of my incoming mail.
Response: Thank you for your rating! Glad you liked the ATC!
Comment: Brightened my day! I feel very spoiled with your lovely package. Your altered cards are very nice. I will be keeping them displayed as art rather than playing with them. I particularly like the one with the wolf and the one with the lantern which looks like those in my childhood church. :)
Response: Thank you! Happy you liked everything! Thank your for your rating!
Comment: LOL at the cute set of inchies. LOVE your hand-drawn bugs and flowers! And the negative pic of you is awesome. Thanks for another wonderful swap! And the stamped images will be fun to use -- so generous! Thanks also for the HUGE package of beautiful postage stamps! It is hard to pick favorites as they are all so wonderful. I hardly have seen any of these before and so am excited to add them to my collection! <3<3<3<3<3
Response: Thanks! Happy when you are happy! Thank you for your rating :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful card! I've seen your name many times in threads (and really liked the marbled inchies you made with nail polish) so it's wonderful to get a swap from you! Plus it's exciting to get mail from overseas!
Response: Aww, why didnt you gave me a hint, maybe we are partnered again, i have still some of the Inchies! Glad you like the ATC, thank you for your rating!
Comment: 8/28 - Got the first installment that you sent - you did a fantastic job on the Stitch twinchies! I love them! Thanks too for the stamped images and the wild animals images - will update this comment when you second installment arrives. HA! UPDATED 8/31: Got the rest of the stuff! Thank you for all the stamped images and punchies! You know what? I think that those little crowns might just fit perfectly on the kitties.... The inchies you made are super - and the photo one is fantastic - great job! And I have GOT to try the nail polish paper marbeling - it's so cool! Thanks for another great swap! Oh - and thank you for the Ernie the Envelope postcard - love it!
Response: I hope you flipped out a little :P Update: Thanks! Have to try cats and crowns, I am sure it will look funny. For the Photo-Inchie I used ages ago a passportpicture of me and used the warholizer and ordered the picture online as a photo. It was just the right size and i love it too. Thanks for swapping with me.
Comment: Received your cute inchies today. I especially love the little hand-drawn bug and owl. Both postcards are way cool! And thank for using such a nice selection of postage stamps. Hope to swap with you again soon! <3<3<3
Response: Thank you too! And thank you for your rating. Oh and the owl isnt handdrawn, its a stamped image i got few days ago and i colored it and cut it out.
Comment: Oh wow! Thank you so much for the great envelope stuffed full of punchies and stamped images! And for all the other little goodies like the postcard and note cards! This was a fantastic swap - I'm so glad you suggested it! Thanks again!
Response: I love the punchies you sent me! Thanks for swapping! Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC. I do like it very much and yes it does look like a Batik. Is the title "Violet Dance"? I like it! Another thank you for the lovely card and note. I have never been to Europe but hope to some day. Happy Swapping! jody
Response: Glad you like it. Yes, the title is Violet dance. You're welcome! Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATC. Such a delicate design. You did an excellent job coloring all those tiny details. I love the greeting card and the beautiful postage stamp too. Lovely swapping with you! <3<3<3
Response: Oh thanks! It was fun. first time i used that technique. I begin creating inchies with this technique :) . thanks for the rating. You're welcome.
Comment: Thanks so much for a wonderful ATC. As you know I already loved your card even though I didn't know it was for me. I never look to see who is my partner until I receive it. That was so funny! I checked your Flickr site after your contact. Also, thanks for the extras. The bookmark and it's website is cool even in translation. I will have to research the Adlige-Sir James card. I alway enjoy a challange. Thanks for a wonderful and fun swap.
Response: Jippie :) Yeah that was fun you spoiled yourself hehe. The playing card sir james is just from a board game i disbanded. I thought you can alter it or rip it apart and use it for atcs or something. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Guess what was in my mailbox when I got home :) Three fantastic ATCs from you! I love them, very well made...the clock one is so cool! Thank you for a wonderful swap package!
Response: Happy you get the mail and you like it! The clock one is my favourite too, but couldnt stop making ATCs :) Thanks for the rating and the heart. I have to add, i made a mistake about the skull images on the ATCs, they are from ereshkigal, not agonysdecay. Have to change it on flickr too, but so you know.
Comment: Thank you so much for such a lovely package today! :D I was so happy to see your name on the cute envelope and could hardly wait to open it. Oh, thank you! Your nail polish bunnies are absolutely adorable! Great job and great idea! It may have been challenging, but I love the results. The other polka dot bunnies are just too cute for words. I love their expressions. I really like the pink one, too. It's simple, but lovely. Thank you, too, for the beautiful extras. I hope this is the beginning of many future swaps for us. :) Thank you for setting it up. I love it all. Thank you.
Comment: I also enjoy Paulo Coelho. Thank you for a poem auf Deustch by one of the great German poets. My Friend who speaks German will read it to me in German and translate it. The quote is really quite true. What Coelho books have you read? I also love the stamp on your PC. Cheers, Le Papillon Vert
Response: Thanks for the rating! I have to read "Na margem do rio Piedra eu sentei e chorei" and "Onze minutos". I have them in my book shelves but have to read them soon. I Borrowed them from a friend.
Comment: Thank you for the ATC! I love it! My brother and I have a debate as to who is on the ATC. You can probably guess that I am right and he is wrong but please help me prove it to him. He doesn't believe me when I show him the clips I have. Haha
Response: uhm i read your profile and you mentioned you like the movie Spirited Away. The title of the atc is chihiro, so many hints i guess :) i hope you are right? thanks for the 5 and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the thoughful comment! I love Durer. Greatest draftsman... ever? Well, to me anyway. I'm no art critic. Yes, it's March, the time of year when I have Irish music playing constantly around the apartment. Hope the neighbors don't mind, lol. Eleuthero is an herb in "Tension Tamer" tea by Celestial Seasonings. I've had trouble finding places to order it other than through them. One of my favorite things from your countries is the board game "Settlers of Catan." Do you ever play it?
Response: We have the boardgame here in my home, but i never played it. I am no great boardgame fan. I will try to find some tea with Eleuthero to taste it. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the cute elephant graphic. I liked it, but I'm not into flashing/moving things on my profile, so I removed it; hope you don't take that as a bad thing!
I've read a bit of Singer, but not extensively. I'm reading some Mill in one of my philosophy classes right now. Vegetarians are cool! I know not everyone can be vegan, so thanks for doing what you can. :) I shall have to check out the supernerds group, thanks for that info. I would post things on Flickr, but I'm so busy right now that I'm barely finding time just to swap... so maybe someday I will put some up. I do have a blog I use for swapbot swaps, but it doesn't have a lot on it. Here's the link: http://user2637.blogspot.com/ Nice meeting you!
Response: Thanks for the link. Your ATCs look great. I just fell in love with the elephant so i posted it everywhere. its your profile, your rules :) Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I said I'd critique the ATCs, so here goes! :) While the Owl was cute, it was not my favourite. I would have outlined the card and sprayed it with a laquer to seal the paint. Schlotzen 1/2 I really liked! The composition of the tiles and the colours really worked for me. :) Schlotzen 2/2 was okay. It just looked like you did it in a hurry as an afterthought. My favourite card was Sissi. It looked polished, framed and like you took time with the details (such as cutting with edging scissors). I would recommend that you use thicker cardstock for your cards. Or glue two thin pieces together to make it more sturdy. Especially when you are going to be painting or gluing on them, because the thinner paper tends to curl up. Overall, I like your ATCs and can see much talent waiting to come out! blessings, Gypsy oh, and thanks for the postcards too! It is always good to put the ATCs between stiff cardboard, postcards or greeting card when mailing, so bravo! :)
Response: Thank you! The owl atc needed the most of my time. i painted on water color paper. youre right, i should have framed it or something, it would look better. i did not think of framing in this moment. schlotzen1/2 was really simple and i dont need much time for it. i expected you would see it at the 3rd place. because its just a collage and is glued together. schlotzen 2/2 was really an afterthought. i used the leftover from schlotzen 1 and tried to make an atc with it, using some punch. i am really surprised you like sissi! sissi i think was the boring atc of the 4 i sent. its a collage too and i make it quick after the 3 atcs. just found a book and played around, a book i could use and tear apart, some scissors and thought about how i could arrange the things on the atc. and ok, it was hard to cut the round shape perfectly. but its so flat!
Comment: thank you for the sweet New Year's card and i love the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies postcards too! i bought the postcard book, too, but of course i'm not sending them to myself! haha... Happy New Year!
Response: Damn, i hoped you dont have them. Thanks for your rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the colorful Advent calendar Santa Claus card. That's only the second Advent card I've ever received. Hope you having a lovely holiday weekend. Here in Chicago, we're covered with fresh snow. Happy New Year!
Comment: Axinja , I loved your quote -I placed it in my journal entry for today 12/23/10. I also will place your postcard in a binder -Thanks for the joy of receiving my card today :-) kathy ( sharingink)
Comment: Veilen Dank! Ich leibe der karte! Okay, enough butchering your language! LOL! Thank you so very much for the beautiful Christmas card! And the extra of the postcard! Looks like Berlin has changed since I was last there in 1992. :) blessings, Gypsy
Response: Thanks! You always mess up the IE to EI. :D Thanks for the fast rating and the heart.
