Comment: Like the needlebook, the pincushion is fantastic, thank you SO much, I just love them! And thank you for the extras as well.
Response: I am so thrilled to hear that you like them. I read that you do not rate on extras. When I saw your wishlist and thought I had what you wished for. So I just had to send some along. They are the kinds of things I turn into charms or use in assemblage art. I enjoy taking bits of old jewerly and making them new again.
Comment: Oooooh - I cannot tell you how much I love these buttons (not to mention the pretty, pretty wrappings ....)!!!! I already have plans for the carded ones in a State Fair project - yippee!!! Thanks again for a lovely swap!
Response: Thank you so much! I had a great time swapping with you and I am so glad that you liked the buttons.
Comment: OMG Linda, what an absolute fantastic package you sent me. I am absolutely speechless. I would have been blow away if all I had received was the fantastic Bead Fairy you made. But then you included the box of buttons as well. You have spoiled me. <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
Response: Thank you so much. I have this fantastic little pennant that you made for me hanging above my computer. Colors are red and blue, so I had to include some read and blue for you. She was fun to make. I saw buttons on your wishlist and I just happened to have a bunch of the one style of vintage buttons so I was happy to share them with you. It was my pleasure to make a swap for you once again.
Comment: Thank you for the generous, beautiful swap package. I love all of the sheets and of course the beautiful vintage lace. I wish I could give you 5 hearts, but they only let me give you 1. Thanks again!
Response: You are welcome. You are the bestest swap partner ever and I enjoy spoiling you.

Response: This is wonderful news! This swap was so much fun from searching for bottles at the antique store to making the charms and attaching all the bits and pieces. Vintage lace works really good for padding a package. I am trilled that you like it.

Comment: Linda, your swap packages are always so generous and amazing! First off, the rolos are fantastic--I LOVE tea, so the tea-themed cards are perfect! The domino is gorgeous, and I'm putting it on a chain so I can wear it (I know I'm gonna get lots of compliments on it!) The coasters are a welcome gift too, as I can *always* use them with kids & grandkids around!

Response: I am so glad you like them. My collection is growing by leaps and bounds with these swaps. It has been a few weeks since I used one. I like to ue them for backgrounds on journal pages. Peal off the two back layers first. I think the ones I sent you had about 1/2 peeled and 1/2 not peeled. Thank you so much for the great rating and have fun! See you before too long in Oregon!

Response: You are very welcome. I now have a huge collection of napkins thanks to this swap. I like to use them for backgrounds or sometimes I rip them into pieces and put them on a page that way. Have a blast and thanks for the great rating.
Comment: O MY O MY O MY! Linda---- O MY!!! This is such a lovely wonderful package--I feel like it's my birthday! WOW!! I was reading an old thread where you made a comment about a type of clay you use--- is that bottlecap charm made with that clay? Did you use a push mold? DO YOU KNOW YOU MAKE BEAUTIFUL STUFF?!?!?! O dear o dear! The Rolos are GREAT! My rolo is looking really good---thanks in a big way to you! I love tea, and your rolos are beautiful...really.

Linda, you truly have a heart of gold and I feel so honored to swap with you and have you as a craft chat buddy! You made my week.
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed everything. The bottlecap charm is made with air dry clay. The pushmold is from the Enchanted Gallery. They have wonderful molds. I wish we lived closer also. We would have a great time! And probably give each other great ideas. I had so much fun putthing this together for you.

What can I say??? Thanks for be so generous and kind person...:o) I really appreciate that and I really want to be your partner again in other swap...:o) I hope that you get my package soon...:o) All the best wishes for you!

Comment: What a beautiful card! I love the shimmery background. Thank you!
Response: Thank you for the compliment. The shimmery background is a pearlescent fluid acrylic ink that our local JoAnns just started carrying. It comes in a relly cool ink bottle container too. When you put it on and it is still wet it does the most amazing things on the paper. Thank you for the great rating!
Comment: Linda... WOW! What a beautiful and amazing glue book! It's so lovely. I can't stop looking at it. Thank you so much. It's gorgeous. :)
Oh, I have to tell you that I laughed because you and I used the same chocolate cookies from a magazine in our glue books. That tickled me when I saw the same ones in the book you made for me.
Response: Aha! Brilliant minds think alike. I also used some of your favorite fairy pics that you had posted in the Attic. This was such a fun swap to make, I loved doing it and thank you for the great rating.
Comment: You are my first page received & I love it. Great job!! I am taking this page to work to show off your work. I think the letter you typed to all 9 of us describing what you did was a great idea. Very nice swap. Thank you!!
Comment: WOW this is really the coolest Atc every..What a clever ideal and girl you sure put it all together very well..I just love my shark atc, it has already made a great addition to my collection..Also what nice extras, the beads( being Native American) are very close to my heart..You sure get a heart from me and more if I could..
Response: Thank you for the heart and the kind words, That was a challening ATC for me to make. I did a lot of experimenting, I am so happy you like the way it came out. It makes all the work worthwhile when you get such great feedback
Comment: Linda, wow these are absolutely AMAZING ATCs!!! You do very stellar work, a true artist indeed ;) It looks like you have great supplies to work with, I'm jealous! What is that stuff that you have placed over the photos? It seems like I used to know what that is and now I can't place my finger on it. All I know is I want some!! Thank you so much for the extra ATC blank and photos. They will find a good home here;) Thank you so much again for your effort on these ATCs, they are beautiful, just like you!! 100+ Hearts for you!!
Response: Ah shucks thanks for all the nice things you said. The mystery stuff is Mica it is a natural mineral. I got lucky and was able to buy a "book" of it off of Ebay for really cheap. I have enough to do a million cards. I will send you some.
Comment: What beautiful cards! what is this clear plastic-y stuff you've used on them? They're really quite spectacular; and thanks a bunch for all the extras! =]
Response: Thank you so much I am glad you liked the package. The clear stuff is Mica it is a natural mineral. You can purchase sheets from crafts stores. I was lucky to buy a block of it off of EBay someone was selling their rock collection. When you buy a block it is called a book. You pry little bits off at time and can split it until it is super thin. I like to leave it a little thicker so that it adds a sepia tone to the photos. Once you have a thin piece you can punch holes like I did for brads and you can cut it with scissors. PM me if you would like for me to send you an envelope of some I have tons.
Comment: Thyank you so much for my sltered playing cards. I really love the house of cards one. My favorite thing that you sent, though, was the extra vintage looking atc. They are all so neatly done. Thank you so much.
Comment: After seeing your photos, I was hoping I'd get "House of Cards"!!! Thank you soooo much! And I love the little spoon--can't bear to use it yet in a craft though! Gonna be stingy and tape it to my workspace for inspiration...=^_^= blessings, Gypsy
Response: You are very welcome, thanks for being my swap partner and thank you for the heart. Have a wonderful day, Linda
Comment: I have rated this twice but it has not been showing up...

Comment: Give a heart? How about give lots of hearts! I LOVE the wall hanging! I'm so glad you were my partner! Everyone would be so envious if they saw this. You did a great job! Thanks for joining my swap! Barbara
Response: Hi, Thankyou, this was fun and fun is good! I'm gonna like this swapping.
