Comment: I love this clay brooch so much! You did an excellent job. The only reason I didn't give a heart is because it was sent a couple of days late. Thank you for giving me something cute to wear for Halloween!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I enjoyed making it.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC. I absolutely love it! No worries Ginger. I’m so very sorry about Lyric having to go back to the rescue. You tried and that’s what matters the most. Let’s hope she will be an only child to a wonderful home💜 Dogs....they do live and grow into our hearts
Comment: Thank you! It’s beautiful. And thank you for the extra goodies. I also tried to make a match box for my partner and it did not come together or hold up well so i ended up using an existing one. I totally get ya!
Comment: I peeked at it a tiny bit but want to save it for Halloween to open :D Thank you so much!! UPDATE: I opened up the hat last night and it is so cute! My husband and I put it on our cat for a second, haha!
Response: I'm so glad you like it. I wish I could have seen the cat but I be a few seconds was generous!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a lovely ATC! I really liked the imagery your haiku invoked. And loads of hugs for your encouraging words (re: getting that degree). You seriously made my day with this swap. Thank you! xoxo
Response: I'm so very happy you enjoyed the ATC. I'm a technical writer by profession and, while I don't do creative writing any longer, the heart of a writer is in me somewhere. I like to encourage others who want to go down the path. You have the soul to do it.
Comment: Hello neighbor.. Thanks for the really cute ATC. I bought about 30 lbs. of buttons years ago at an antique shop. Took me a week to sort by color and type. Made Christmas icicles, and still have loads left!! Thanks for all the goodies.
Response: And people laugh at me when I say I bought 10 lbs. It's kind of funny to buy that many buttons. The bad thing is, I consider buying more buttons when I come across them in bulk.
Comment: I received and I peeked inside. Just from the wrapping paper alone you deserve a heart. I will send a message after opening next week. Thank you and happy holidays to you. Edit 12/26 - WOW! Thanks so much for the gorgeous tablecloth. I do use the ones I have so it's nice to have a new one. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.Thanks also for all of the crafty goodies, too. I will be busy this week!
Comment: Hi Ginger, It's beautiful. You did a really great job making it. Means a whole lot that you'd use some of your grandmothers lace on it. I love the tiny nature doll. :-) Thank you for the beads. You'd have gotten a heart anyways, cuz I saw the love and care you put into creating this for me. Thank you so much. Hugs, Sandy
Response: I'm so happy you like it. Out of all the things I've made, this is my very favorite ever.
PS. I was tempted to add glitter. HA!
Comment: Thanks Ginger for the package you sent....I will alter the book you sent since that was your plan for it!! The sheet music, accounting sheets and pattern instructions will end up somewhere in a future swap! :-))
Comment: Thank you so much for the Gorgeous Mermaid doll. You did a Fantastic job creating her. Thank you too for the envie/note with goodies inside. Love the colors you used, hair is perfect, the scale work is Amazing! Mermaid Hugs, Sandy
Comment: I loved your ATC "Twiggy in the city!" Such a clever idea! Sorry you were sick. Hope your better now.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! It was so much fun. In all the years I've been doing ATCs for swaps, this is probably the first time one came out exactly like I saw it in my head. Thank you for being understanding!
Comment: Oh my gosh! I never expected a handmade cute poo!! It literally made my entire week! The effort, the time, the creativeness, I really appreciate it. I am so glad I was your swap partner because I totally love it. You even sent me extras:) how awesome!! What a great addition to my poo collection. It's funny how your son was appalled over it! Tell him the poo now sits next to my desk smiling at me everyday :) xhugsx
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! I way underestimated the time it took to stuff that long rope of poo. As I was stuffing I made up many poo songs. It was a blast!
Comment: Oh my gosh! After reading what a time you had making this ATC I felt so bad for you, but I'm not gonna lie it made me laugh too. It made it safe and sound and I over it, very "heart" felt no pun intended ðŸ˜œ And thanks for the extras! I love getting bits of ephemera,sits like confetti that you can use!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! What a journey. It was so ridiculous.
Comment: I really like the box you shipped it all in. Perfect to hold my Christmas cards for next year! All the items are perfect! Already placed candy in my candy dish. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank-you for being a great swap-bot partner.
Comment: Omg, woman, you are awesome! :) Wow. I couldn't believe that was a swap when I got it. It's one of the largest swaps I've ever gotten. You went way over the top. You're so sweet. :) Some of the table things will come in handy at my sister's this year!! THANK YOU!!
Response: I'm glad you like it. It was fun and I would love to do it again. It was a great idea!!
Comment: He's cute AND furry! Thank you so much! I literally shook him and watched his eyes roll around for a few minutes straight... I think I'm losing my mind:) And thank you for the 'professional' ATC cards!!! I must hunt these down. (It would be safer than me with a rotary cutter and Bristol...)
Response: Thank you very much. Because it is so close to April 27, two years after the twisters ripped through the state, I started to do something about tornados but I decided not to do it. The next thing I thought about was the old song, Stars Fell on Alabama. When I was in the band at Alabama, we used to play it and Jimmy Buffet also did a very laid back rendition of a laid back song.
Comment: Ginger, this is so cute. You are a darling to share family buttons with me. I like what you did with the inside of the jar. I can't wait for my studio to be done so I can put this up on a shelf in a prominent location. Thank you for making the just for me!
Response: Thank you so much. My grandmother was very special to me and I remember playing in that button box when I was little. I'm glad you like the bouquet.
Comment: Oh my stars. I love these, Ginger!!! Just literally opened the box...oh my stars! Mr. and Mrs. Claus are gorgeous. Please don't alter your pattern...
And the extras are wonderful too. Thank you so much!!
Response: Thank you very much! I appreciate it and I'm glad you like them.
Comment: Thank you! I loved the dotee you made. It was perfect! I love the way you embroidered. She is very cute and I am getting addicted to dotee dolls :D Every dotee I make it's very cool to see how they become cute and every dotee I receive it's exciting to know how people use their imagination.
Thanks for the letter too ;)
Response: Thank you very much! I had such a good time making the doll and going through my stash of embellishments. I'm glad you like her. This was my first one and I'm addicted now. I've already signed up for a Mr. and Mrs. Claus dotee swap! Just waiting for Christmas fabrics to come out. HA!
Comment: Ginger, Oh my goodness! What a beautiful swap you sent me. Thank you for the charms, the paper embellishments and the lovely handmade paper. Most of all, thank you for the most heart felt ATC I could ever receive! Such creativity and so much love went into it. I admire how you can appreciate the goodness of life and people after such a tragedy. I am so lucky to have been partnered with you and to have been touched by your generous spirit. God bless all of you as you deal with the aftermath of the tornados. A thousand hearts !!!!! Love, Sue
Response: Sue, Thank you so much for the kind words. The amazing thing about tragedies like the tornadoes is how people pull together to help one another. Even now, with the tornadoes in Joplin, MO, people here are sending aid to the people in MO. People are amazing in the best sense of the word.
Comment: "It isn't much"?! Girlfriend, it's AWESOME! I can't tell you how thrilled I am with all my red goodies! You made things! And I can't wait to make the pattern. You have made my day/week/month. :^D
Comment: I luv luv luv this doll! Nothin says creepy like a two-headed zombie baby with wires protruding from its bloody neck-stub. Thanks a bazillion for scaring the crap outta the @!#holes at my post office! (who decided to open the box....lol...) :D
