Comment: Soul City is of course my favorite song. And that album cover is too funny. Eww condom. For the tiny dick it must have slipped off of. Nice to have some new music styles to listen to out of my usual choices, and good for dancing on dirt. Now I can just picture you singing and dancing around your house!

Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my new prayer flags. They just keep getting more awesome and I am so spoiled by you. I laughed my ass off at the Truthiness one and so did Kevin. You are so cool. The radiant sun is such a good prayer and I hope you made yourself one too, although mine will be fluttering on the breeze down to you as well in your fab umbrella house. That sounds really neat and will be lovely place to be outdoors in summer. The renewel flag is awesome for spring, it looks like the trees out my window all getting their new leaves. In fact it looks just like my Styrax "Japanese Snowbell" tree which looks like it will only get leaves on the tips at first but then fills in later. The quilting is fantastic. Oh, Kevin saw the return address on your way cool Gelli envie and busted a gut. I ♥ U

Comment: I have been so speechless about this wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL box of goodness you sent me it took me three days to rate. Marina, these flags are so stunning. I secretly jump for joy when I assign partners and I get you as my receive from person. I secretly love that swapbot's random number generator isn't always so random. I am so lucky to get one of your Gelli AND one of your "fused strands of crappy goodness flags". I can't believe how utterly cool this looks in person. Both techniques, fusing and Gelli, wow. I'm sorry I'm rambling I just don't think there are good enough words to match with your talent and to tell you how much I love them. Seriously, you need to open an etsy shop. I will definitely hang them together for love and happiness, and I would really love to hang them in my purple bedroom, along with the Bodhi tree wall hanging in there. I promise to make my own wind so the prayers will still be infused into the Universe. Ok so that Gelli painting on fabric is all kinds of awesome, AND I get the stencil too. I can't wait to try that technique. Next, the daffodils. Where to I begin to say how lovely these dainty 'dils are. These are going to be hanging on the wall panel next to my desk. Cheery and bright. The ultra cool bee suncatcher! Luvvit. Amy will be so jealous. The uuber cool moon cutout from Steve (thanks Steve!), wow I'd like to see a photo of the panel he made if this bit of cool leftover is just a part of it. Oh my I hope I have not forgotten anything. You have sent me a huge box of love and happiness and the aura of it is glowing all around me. xoxoxoxo
Response: It was sent with love and good energy. I had fun making the flags, and the ribbon daffodils are like therapy, only better. Glad you like it all.

Comment: Oh Turdy -everything you make is so beautiful and this ATC is no exception. I just sat and touched the beautiful card and lovely buttons for awhile! It came after a rough day at the hospital with my mom so it was really the perfect thing to cheer me up. Thank you so much!
Response: Thanks, Deeney. I really like the woven Guatamalan fabric. It made a nice background for the metal. I hope you are cheering up a bit. I know! You should put a couple of those tattoos on Stuffy for some good clean fun. Oh, I hope I sent a unicorn or something good!

Comment: Marina, I have so much to say that I don't even know where to start. First I wish I could give you 10 stars for this. It's one of the prettiest pieces I've ever seen and far and away the nicest piece I've ever received. And, I also love thistles. :) In your note you said that you don't know when to stop, but I'm going to tell you that I think this piece is perfect. If you'd added more I think it might have detracted something, but I truly think every bead you placed added something, and you chose perfect beads. I don't know what I am going to do with your square, but I'm seriously thinking of having it framed. I don't know what you do for a living, but the world will be well served if it is fiber art work. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm really hoping you can find a way to use it somehow. Glad you like what I did, even if it wasn't what you were expecting. Thanks!

Comment: Well, your artwork arrived today and I was just thrilled to open it! I was left with my mouth hanging down to the ground in awe of the package. For having just started with colored pencils, you sure are talented. I love your artwork! The poppy you made is so beautiful!!! I dont think you need much practice in blending, youve got it down lol! I really liked that you used a page about Shakespeare, seems fitting :). I couldnt wait and have already put the old seed covers in my garden journal haha I was very surprised to see that you also sent me some lichen (or it might be moss I havent been able to open it yet because for some reason my cat is crazy interested in trying to take it away from me! Maybe its the earthy goodness she smell from Oregon :D) -Oh, but thank you ever so much for this. I almost want to shed a tear because of how thoughtful it was of you to send this to me. I really want to visit and eventually live in Oregon or Washington so receiving a little bit of the area means a lot to me. I wish I would give you more hearts!
Response: I'm really glad you enjoyed my swap, and I hope you like the weird little piece of bark. I go out after storms and pick up the nicest pieces. I really liked that one - the size of it and the variety of mosses and growies on it paints a great picture. I know, I'm weird. I'm okay with it, so no problems, lol. I also bought a blender pencil so I can get better results with my prismacolors. :-) Thank you for the nice rating and the great comment.

I do hope I achieve enlightenment and purity of thought. I just know it must be possible! Now lets get windy! Speaking of which, evidently we have deer breaking wind out in the woods right next to my prayer flags where the critter cam is. That ought to speed up these prayers blowing in the breeze!

Response: Yes, they are crocheted... I stole feathers from a cat toy for the tails, and my cats were scheming to get the Word Birds the whole time I was trying to finish them. Not good odds, but I did manage to preserve them long enough to get them mailed. Pathetic little Word Birds... I think you gave me a pity heart, but I'll take it anyway, lol.

I am glad that I read everything that you did to it before I looked at it or I would have missed things on it. It has been placed in my top 5 collection and will be a keeper for always! I just cannot believe that you made 20 of these! BLESS YOUR HEART!!! It was absolutely gorgeous! I also cannot believe that you made that stamp of thistles. I have got to learn how to do that. I also enjoyed the decorated envie. I cannot thank you enough for sharing your talents in this swap with me. I am blessed! blessings, ellie
Response: I am very honored to be in your Top 5! It was actually a good bit of fun making them. Lol, I'm STILL making some... for RAKs this time, so I can relax a bit. You should try some stamp carving. Something else to become addicted to, lol. Thanks for the nice rating! :-)

Once, on the way to a concert in SF, my friend Greg fell asleep next to me in the back of the van, with his legs crossed at the ankles. I was doing some embroidery, but "somehow" Greg ended up with his pant legs sewn together from crotch to cuffs. He didn't think my stitching was very amazing, but I didn't care. Once you fall asleep in a van full of your trouble-making friends, all bets are off!

Did you know that it was brought here for the Japanese Gardens at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair? The government planted tons of it as ground cover in the area affected by the dustbowl to help the topsoil from erosion... and then it pretty much just took over!

It makes me laugh that this is supposed to be a medium for grades 5-12, ha! I guess we finally passed. This is truly lovely, REALLY!!! Balzac.
Response: Oh man!! I'm so glad I'm finally going to graduate high school!! I really didn't get the color intensity that I was hoping for, and so then it all starts going to hell and I think it is a total piece of crap. I'm glad you like it, though...

Comment: Wow, I really love your artistamp! I think the PO thought it was real, as it has been cancelled with a separate postmark, just like the 'real' stamps. What did you decide on for edging your stamps, in the end? P.S. I also love the background story for the stamp & ATC - makes it so much more personal. Thank you :-)
Response: Yes, the postmistress stamped it and said, "Oh, wow! I almost missed one!" I told her it was a fake and then she felt bad for stamping it. I told her it was cool, that it made it look more real! I used (very carefully) some large scalloped scissors that have a small wave edge. It's hard to cut them, but until I find something that I really like, I will suffer through :-)

Comment: These ATC's are really awesome - thanks SO much, it is apparent a lot of time was spent on them...I think you "got" the lesson better than I did, I was tense through all 3 of mine! The pens are great, never tried them before but they write like a dream (now something else to go out and stock up on!) - thanks again for everything :)
Response: Yes, those pens make a nice smoothe line. I love them! There was a lot of angst over this swap, to be sure. I always want them to turn out better than they do, but I guess it's a beginning. Thanks for the nice rating, and I hope we will be partnered up again sometime.

Comment: Oh, Marina! What a great package. I love it all. I can't wait to take the goodies home to the critters and see them enjoy them. But the ones for the human are especially awesome -- most of all the crocheted doggie! It looks just like Barkley! Did you actually MAKE it?! I'm in awe [bowing I'm-not-worthy bow]. LOVE this swap. heart heart heart heart heart.
Response: So glad that the dog actually looks like your dog..lol. It is the first crocheted animal I have tried to make, so I'm amazed that it actually turned out. That other blue crocheted thing is supposed to be a tug toy, just in case you were wondering :-) Thanks for the niice rating.

Response: Boy, the post took it's sweet time!! So glad it got there finally :-) Glad you like it, and I hope you were able to find the keys to the lock. I could hear them rattling around in there after I boxed it up. Did you take the matchbox part out and see who is underneath?? Thanks for the nice rating!

Comment: Oh my gosh, your crappity squares are gorgeously crappy! Honestly I cannot tell which one you did blindfolded, they are all so beautiful, and I mean beautifully crappy in the gorgeous sense! Wow, my fave is the green one, well, its sparkly, what crapsister wouldn't be mesmerized by glitter? ok, I have just stared them all down and I just cannot tell which one is eyes closed! I just love them all, I love the writing on them idea. Wow such little pieces of crap! Ok, I hate to guess, because they are all so cool, but I will guess the red one?? Man, you should see the blind one I did, mine is totally obvious, haha! OOOOhhh, the pooh etc. pages you used to separate are scrumptiously crap filled! Thank you so much! You'z a good crap ho!
Response: What crappy fun, huh? I was surprised how a bunch of crap glued on a piece of paper can be so purty! I'm really glad you like the glittery ones, too, because I didn't see anything about glitter at all on your profile, so I figured it was a neutral kind of thing for you. The one I did with my eyes closed was the black and silver one. It's only obvious in one spot that there are about 6 or 7 pieces of paper glued almost exactly on top of each other..lol. I had to take a picture of that one so I could tell where stuff went. Hard gluing pieces down if you can't pick them up, and it's hard picking them up without getting it all mixed up! Thanks for the "good crap ho" comment :-) I try.

The matchbox is far too elaborate just for me, the colors are absolutely me and the crow really sets this atop of all of the matchboxes I've seen out there - it is gorgeous! The beads are a "how'd you know", I love peridot colors as that's my birthstone; and the butterfly is gorgeous too along with the buttons that are very very cute (did you make those? - I gave up on button making). Lovely lovely package. I'm going to go make something using my new beads and butterfly. Thanks so much, gee I wish I could give you more hearts.

Comment: W-O-W...These go immediately to the top slots of "best ATCs I've received." I've started carrying them around so I can pull them out and show them to my friends. And possibly random passers-by. I can't imagine the work involved, but I'm happy that I was the lucky recipient! Thank you millions!
Response: Glad you like them :-) Hard to go wrong with Dead Parrots and Silly Walking! I realized after I sent them that I spelled "Norwegian" wrong... especially bad since my boyfriend is Norski. Oh well... somedays I can spell, somedays I'm a bit challenged. Thanks for the rating!

Gave up a fortune to live his beliefs; besides being an animal activist, did you know that he's also the patron Saint for needleworkers? Cool, huh?
