Comment: (Edit to add 9/18): Thank you for the response! If you had let me know that you were having problems, I wouldn't have left a rating. But I never heard anything at all from you for weeks. A simple quick note would have made a big difference. --------(end of edit) I'll change this rating when I receive a package. I am sorry about this, but I feel I have been very patient & have allowed more than sufficient time. I realize that you said the first package got lost in the mail, but you said you would resend something & it's been almost 2 months now.
Response: Absolutely my fault. I will try to get your resend out to you soon. A lot of time and effort went into the first package, and you sent a lovely package to me.
Comment: Thanks so much for doing this swap with me. We don't get Tastycakes in my area, but my mm loves them, so.. I wanted to get some for her. :) And I especially love the atc's (including the robot). ^_^
Comment: Your Priscilla owl is just adorable. Her expression priceless. :-) Thank you for sharing your new coloring technique. I am going to have to try that. Very nice! Thank you ever so much. I'm thrilled to add your owl to my collection!
Comment: Lol - the PC quality is definitely "horrible" but the subject is kinda cute. :) Thank you. If you want to swap PCs let me know because I don't have one from PA yet - I'm collecting American states. :)
Comment: love it!
glad you decided on a bird we all can intimately relate to!
i know of the famed blue crabs, but am glad
there is also a lucrative industry raising & cooking up those succulent birds ...
that recipe makes my mouth water,
even tho' i'm basically vegetarian
> have a super springy month!
Comment: I love the panda you drew me! THAT is most definitely getting smashed. :D The memos you sent were super cute and just my style. I also like the to/from labels you sent! I love French! Thank you for the thoughtful swap!
Comment: YAY! Just got your envelope today and it is awesome! I like how you erased the area for your drawings and put the address along the bottom so it didn't cover the litte scene. I never thought of that. Thank you so much for re-sending....and the extras too :)
Comment: â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ Oh THANK YOU!!!!!! I love the oyster and the petiole!!!!!!! AWESOME addition to my collection!!!!!!!! Thank you Lala!!!!!!!
....Oh and I love digital paper too!!!!!!!!!!
Comment: Hi LaLa! Wow! What a great ATC! It was so nice of you to look up my profile to see what I like! The Mermaid is especially pretty and so well done (my swap-bot friends are so envious!)
I had to laugh out loud with your comment on my address (Mikey's Gyros) because that's where I work and often forget how yummy a Gyro can be!
Thanks so much for this terrific treat!
Comment: Thanks for the squares and your sweet note. I find that the punch works better if you punch quickly. I bought a punch just for this swap and it didn't do well if I punched slow. Have a great day!
Comment: You picked two perfect words for me! My father was a carpenter and so I am familiar with kerfs. Nicely designed card. And the lotus is one of my favorite flowers. I can't help but think spiritual thoughts when I see one. So thank you for two such personal additions to my alphabet collection. <3<3<3<3<3
Comment: I so love this ATC. I love to paint fish and humor in art is a good thing. I showed the Icecream Cone fish to my husband and he said there should also be a hot fudge jelly fish or a jelly fish alla mode pie fish etc... so guess what I'm doing now.
Comment: LOVE your pointillism atc done with somewhat larger dots. I've always done mine much smaller, but the larger dots are a whole new way to go. Love your watercolor background too, and the other goodies. Peace to you
Comment: Thanks for the great scripture cards. I understand completely about the handwriting! I do my verses on the computer. I like using different translations of the Bible--dependent on what I'm looking for. KJV sometimes feels a bit more "lyrical" with the psalms and other biblical poetry.
Comment: I was so impressed and delighted when I got your bird inchies! They are fabulous. You have inspired me, I love your approach, the collage, the tiny borders, the tiny words - thank you ,thank you!!!
Comment: Beautiful, personal, and encouraging! Mind you, I could hardly find the cards in all the other wonderful bits and pieces of paper in the well-stuffed envie. Such a thoughtful treat, and clearly chosen with care and an eye to my likes, rather than a 'last-moment destashing', as some extras seem to be. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and spoiling!
Comment: Thank you for all the memo sheets - I really appreciate the extras! And I love, love, love the skull ones! And thank you for the super cute stickers - they are going to come in handy for Kawaii inchies in the future! Thanks again - it's always a lot of fun trading with you!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC. You obviously spring for the expensive nice punches - love that tree and I appreciate the extra punches to play with! May I ask where the medallion comes from? It is so ... mysterious!
Comment: thanks so much for all the cute stamped images! I esp. love the owl & bird ones! and thanks too for you nice comments about my profile/life! yep, i am one lucky/happy gal! Take care & have fun swapping! :)
Comment: I looooove this atc! And I'm not just saying that because of my obvious love for anything robotic, but seriously, it's so cute! I was also happily surprised to see that we both used the same gems for our atc's. (Hi5!) :D
Comment: What a cute little bird. I love him. I love birds too and we have many feeding stations in our yard. One little hummingbird guarded the feeder all winter through snow and ice. He waited every morning for me to put out a fressh feeder that wasn't frozen. Fun to watch. Jan
Comment: Aw thanks so much for the sweet and lovely sheets (and stickers)! I loved your little message and I'm glad you shared your new stationaries with me :). Hope youre having a fantastic week and thanks again, xoxo.
Comment: omg, thank you so much!!!! i'd give extra <3 if i could. now that i've started my ATC collection, your picks are wonderful additions! i love owls too- let me know if you'd like to do a private owl atc swap!
Comment: This was a fun card to get and read about. I agree with you the hoop skirts were definately birdcage like. When i was a kid I had an old one along with some old clothes that had been my great grandmas... ( i am 45 so do the math) anyway... there was a pretty big hoop skirt among the dresses and i loved wearing it... fun dress up.
Comment: Awesome Inchies!! Love them, you did a great job...I am not into using orange much myself, so mine were a challenge to make as well!! I appreciate the Dragonfly ATC as well...love it!! Oh and I agree with the number of Lauras on here...lol
Comment: Thank you for the ATC and the pretty papers. I am SO glad you sent the Pat the Bunny ATC! - it is perfect for this week because I had two little grandsons born within six days of each other. Your sweet ATC will be special to me because it will remind me of this week every time I flip through my collection of ATCS. Thank you also for the caring note you enclosed. I can tell that you are a lovely person and a "doer" of your faith and not just a "talker." Does that make sense? Thanks again for a great swap!
Comment: Thank you for the card. I received just a piece of patterned paper. Also the card isn't cut straight. So the card doesn't meet the swap requirements.
A strange experience. It is just that your card didn't meet the requirements. The 3 had nothing to do with whether I like the card or not. Please don't send me another card. Now, here's the 5 you wanted so bad.
Response: Hmm...I did put thought and effort into it. Each one represented me/your profile somehow. And all mine are cut on a cutter? I am sorry you did not like the card I sent, but it DID meet all of the requirements. I wish you would have let me send you another, I'd like to make you happy with this swap....
Comment: I think I am sending just as many swaps to you as you are sending to me! LOL Thank you for the really neat inchies - I love them all, and I love the variety! And thanks for the extra Kawaii inchie and the little "L" notebook thingy! YAY!
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the great V-day inchies! They're great! Also, thank you for the extra bits you included. There's some great stuff there to use in future crafts so that's appreciated! Thx!
Comment: OOOOH I got some beautiful tangles in my mail today. All the twinchies are wonderful! Nice selection of patterns -- even a couple I haven't seen before. And your line work is very nice. Thanks for the extra two twinchies and the great zentangled ATC. <3<3<3
Comment: The only hand drawn card I've received from this website in about 3 or 4 months. She looks awesome too! Love the style you used for her, thank you tons for sending her my way! Hope to see you in other swaps of mine in the future. <3
Comment: La La my first ATC ever I was so excited. It will always hold a special place in my collection. The extras were so sweet of you. I hadn't thought to do that. Thank you for your kindness. Where do you get the little plastic sleeves I love them. Lois 63
Comment: These are adorable! I have just been introduced to kawaii and learning about all these characters. I grew up with the sanrio basic characters from the 80's, but never knew there were so many more. I do think we join the same swaps good to see you have good taste (or maybe I do) LOL. See ya in the next one. Thanks so much!
Comment: Hi Lauren, thanks for the lovely ATC! It's so lovely! The way you do the atc and the wordings to it are so true! Thank you! It made my day and reminded me of God's promise :) Thanks for the lovely rub-ons too! May you have a blessed and great day ahead!
Comment: Just realized I hadn't rated you on your lovely ATC! I'm really sorry, because it's really, really pretty. I actually never thought to use fabric on mine, if you can believe it, and I LOVE that you did, and that I could use it on another article if I wanted. (But I won't, because it might get ruined, and I want to have it for always!)
Comment: The envelope was ripped open - right across my address - and it pulled the front of the ATC sleeve back - I can't believe there was anything still in the envelope! Still in included were FOUR fantastic inchies - I love them! I love the variety that you came up with. Thanks too for the great mini memo sheets! Great job - thanks again!
Response: :O !!!!!!!! I am so glad they weren't lost! I even tape up the edges of the envie so they won't get ripped! The inchies were OK then?
Comment: TY so much for the lovely tree punch ATC! Love it, and how nice of you to send me an extra lovely ATC due to those nasty flakers! You are so sweet! I bet your sister loved the trees being framed - sounds awesome! I might be contacting you on that suggestion of a private swap, thanks for the offer as well! Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I received my ATC and I want to thank you so much for not only sending me the ATC but also all the goodies that came with it. It's beautiful and this is actually my 1st ATC that I have ever received! God bless you and I am blessed to call you my Sister in Christ! God bless you and your family... and it's so neat how you have family close by me and they have my last name too... Neat! :) I love that city!
Comment: I got both ATC's today lol. They both are pretty. I also love the glitter of the snow. I wish we would get snow its just freezing with nothing to show for it, bummer. Thanks for both, Love them!
Comment: Thank you very much for such a lovely card and all the extra goodies! It was great to arrive home today and find your envelope waiting for me :) So nice to get a letter too. Thanks :) Swappers don't get much greater than you :)
Comment: Thank you for both of the inchies--I also sent 2 to my partners! And in Reno......we get a lot of snow here! We may get, like 200 plus days of sunshine, but its still cold!!! It was 17 degrees this morning even with the sun coming up! BRRR.....
Comment: Never seen Easter Eggers or Rainbow Chicks. I collect any egg shells that fall out of our trees. Love the have one of their shells fall out of our trees. But we are in Calif and you are in Pa.
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely ATC and all the lovely goodies and for being such a perfect angel and sending me the India ATC. I loved it all. â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥ I wish I could send you way more hearts.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the lovely fabric charms!! This type of swap is fun to do & you get so many interesting charms :) Thanks for the extra fabric as well. You can be sure it will be put to good use :)
Comment: Just arrived! Wow! I love it, and admire you so much for being able to do that!! Colour combo is perfect, and I also love the fabric and papers too. Thank you so much for a wonderful package.
Comment: Thanks for the really cool menus, and I loved your little note explaining what they are and where you got them!! I especially like the Ernie's menu and their Hot Weiner Lunch! Thanks again and happy swapping.
Comment: I just love what you did on your ATC especially the boy and guitar. The colour is just tops. The wrapper one is well thought out.. Thanks heaps also for the extras. Until next time, happy swapping Maggie.
Comment: Loved the atc you made. It was a great idea to put a smile on it, and when I opened the envie, it put a smile on my face too :-)
Thanks also for the nice postage stamps on the envie and for your note.
Comment: How interesting you were here in east TN. My address says Greeneville but really I live outside of Bailyton on a Mountain. Low crime and hard to find work in the area unless you are medical. Thank you for the cleaver ATC.
Comment: Hi LaLa! I'm sorry for the late rating,but i was on holidays :-) I got the two cards and they are so beautiful. Thank you very much and say also a big thank you to your two kids. Have a nice day!
Comment: fantastic! you really went all out. i certainly didn't expect any scrapbooking stickers and that little envie is awesome and my favorite! i can't wait to use it, but i hate to let it go. :) my son really liked the lizard/bug stickers, so thanks for sending those, too.
Comment: What an awesome package!! Thanks so much for being the first Swap-bot package I got!! :) You have really set the bar high! You packed so much in here and such a variety! Hope we get to swap again someday!! **Heart*Heart**
Comment: Great pics! Ive watched my turtle devour strawberries like that! LOL. Your hubby's shoes are the size of your forearm, I hope he makes up for having to wear them with good bowling scores. AND OMG those Amish statues are seriously frightening. I gotta get some tips on cool places to visit from you. Thanks for sharing.
