Comment: Hi Salome! No worries about the delay - life happens and folks need to remember that! The wait was well worth it, as your photos are lovely! I have no drawing or painting skills as well, so I feel your pain - sometimes life is just so beautiful and I would love to somehow depict it, but I can barely draw stick figures, so... LOL! Thank you again for the lovely tree photos! All the best! Hugs, Happy Snapping and Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful photos of the trees and forest. They are lovely! I would love to see that tree at your mother's house.. it's magnificent! It looks so happy and healthy! I can see why you want to drive by and to see it regularly!!
The bridge photo in the forest is beautiful! Looks like a postcard! The pool and forest by Chambord Castle is beautiful too! I understand why you love to visit there ! <3
Comment: Hi Salome! Thank you so much for the beautiful water photos! I love the castle being in the background - I am jealous as we do not have "real" castles here - sigh! Wonderful Happy Mail! Wishing you all the best! Hugs, Happy Snapping, and Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm happy that you love the photos I send! I live in an nice region and I love sharing it with other people!
My tree photos swap will be send a bit late, tomorrow or on Friday...
Comment: I am glad to hear you had such a great Halloween/Samhain! I have never been to France but my partner is from Europe and has told me the holiday is not celebrated the same, its rare to see kids trick-or-treating there. With COVID, Halloween has not been the same as when I was a kid, but we did have more kids out this year. Where I am from, a porch light turned on means come knocking for candy, and no porch light means no candy. --- I hope you keep up the traditions and adding/changing as time goes on. Samhain is my favorite holiday for the whole year.
Comment: Thank you so much for this swap I was very happy to receive your letter and photos. Love all the decorations especially the supermarket one. I would never have thought it was a store; I was thinking it was the front yard of a house. I hope this swap is up again for next year. :)
Response: I'm happy you loved my swap! I'll surely host the same swap next year. I also love hosting similar swap for christmas.
I received your swap too and loved the photos! I'll rate you this week end as today is a busy day for me.
Comment: Hello Salome, thank you very, very much for your amazing swap! I loved the goodies you send me very much and -like I did with all the ones I love most- will use them for decorating my diary. That's always an extra box an my desk. *g* Your september/october sound awesome and I'm happy to hear how good you feel. I had a busy time, too and I'm currently writing a letter to you with everything, that went on. And with postcards. XD
Take care of yourself and stay healthy! With lots of good wishes,
Response: I'm so happy that you loved what I sent you! Can't wait to receive your letter and know what's going on in your life!
Comment: I have just opened your package, so many beautiful things! I love the magnet and all the interesting things you wrote me, the postcards are very nice and all! :D I hope to meet you at the next swap! Thank you <3
Comment: Hi Salome! Thank you for the lovely photos of your furbabies and the neighbor's cat! They are all so pretty! My hubby is not a cat person but I am always amazed at how different their temperaments can be - some are so aloof and others want to be near their human all the time! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: It was so much fun opening that package! Thank you so much! It's my first time ever in a swap like like this and I love it! (You asked what I put in my package: a coffee table book on cool hotels and a patchwork pouch.)
Response: I'm so happy you loved what I sent you! I hope you'll find a good use for them! Wow, you've been really generous with this swap!
Comment: Hi Salome, i received your happy gelli plate printed mail and your letter. I really like your gelli plate prints. Nice to also make your stationery with the plate. I think I have had a gelli plate for about 6 years, different sizes. Every time I discover new techniques. Sometimes I don't touch the plate for months and like with this swap I get really excited about it again. At the moment I watch a lot of youtube videos of 'creationsbyjsheri'. She also has a technique with different layers. I absolutely love it. Who did you learn your technique from? I've known Birgit Koopsen for a while, and I've even taken a few courses by her. She also has nice techniques. Greetings Mieke
Comment: Hi Salome! Love how you decorated your envie! Also loved the photos - I enjoy trying to get bee shots as well! I am so sorry to read about the loss of your Mom and shortly her home - you are right, that is like losing her twice - sending hugs and prayers that things work out and if not, that your wonderful memories will help you through such tough times! In my thoughts and prayers!
Comment: Thank you for the pink and green spring flipbook! Even the goodies are colour coordinated. :) Real spring vibes. For me this folding flipbook was the first try too. Have fun planting flowers, I will plant some strawberries soon!
Response: I'm so happy you received it so quickly and you love it so much! Pink and green are my favourite colors, happy you love them too! Good luck with your strawerries! Here we planted rasperries.
Comment: Thank you so much for your cute zine! I'm so sorry to hear about your mother ❤ I hope you'll be able to take a breath soon, and get the time to mourn properly. It's so important to be able to do that, and also to remember all the good times. Pain can be overwhelming, so to be able to remember good times and smile and even laugh is equally important ❤
Response: Thanks a lot for your nice words! All you write is true, and I hope I'll have that time soon. I'm happy you loved my zine!
Comment: Quelle adorable ATC ! Le fond est parfait pour l'image choisie. Je suis toujours fascinée de voir ce qu'il est possible de faire avec les encres distress... Je n'arrive jamais à faire aussi bien on dirait. On a bien de la neige au Québec, mais cet hiver a été très doux comparé à d'autres années. Ton papier à lettre et l'enveloppe sont mignons comme pas permis ! ^_^
Response: Je suis contente que tu ai aimé les ATC ainsi que le papier! J'aimerais beaucoup recevoir des choses faites avec des encres distress mais je n'en ai jamais reçu. Malheureusement le peu d'ATC que j'ai reçu sont ce qu'on appelle des stickers slapping avec peu de travail.
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely letter, it was so nice to hear about how you spend Christmas and your favourites. I walked through a spectacular tunnel of light last night to the theme tune of Somewhere in my Memory from Home Alone, it was magical!
Response: I listen to this song a lot too! Not my favorite but beautiful! I hope you had a nice Christmas! I had a wonderful one, I'm really happy! And happy you created this swap, I loved it!
Comment: Dear Salomé,
thank you for the amazing swap once again. I love to get mail from you. The love, effort and details you put into everything amaze me every time. It was such a delight to read through your letter and look at all the pictures. Thank you again for the swap! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay safe and healthy~
Response: I love making you so happy, you deserve it!!
Comment: Your memories made for a great read! I wish I could speak French as well as you speak English. We Americans are poorly language educated. I like your card too. The virus will make for a lonely Christmas this year. My daughter can't come from UK.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful letter. I so enjoyed reading about your life in France. I enjoyed the pictures as well and seeing your chickens and your cats. I have cats too but not chickens although I love chickens.
Comment: Hi Salome ! I got your Halloween card, Yay! But you didn't sign it. Bummer! But I do love the Owl on the card & I love Owls ! Thank you for wonderful note, telling me how you & boyfriend celebrate Halloween every year to yourselves. I take France doesn't celebrate the holiday? I don't do Journals or paper crafts. Except for an occasional card making, once in a blue moon. Because it just my thing, paper crafts. But I bet your Halloween journal is fantastic! Thank you again for the card.
Response: I'm happy you loved the card! The swap requirements said blank cards, don't write in them.
Halloween is celebrated a little in France but this year with the pandemic and lockdown I have no idea if kids went trick or treating...
Comment: Thank you so much for the darling Ghostie card and your letter. We weren't able to see our grandkids but we had a Halloween festival at our church so we volunteered to help out and had a great time celebrating with other peoples kids. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely ATCs! I’m sure your cats looked so cute! I’ve got a king costume for Thunder, but he’s not a fan of wearing the crown lol. You and your boyfriend must’ve had lots of fun this Halloween! 🖤
Comment: Hello Salome ! Thank you for so long letter on Halloween & photos( you look like you had loads of fun & happy you did!). What a good read and what nice photos of you in costumes with friends & your kitty. Thank you too for all the fun goodies of Skeleton key foam stickers, Halloween ribbon pieces, blank Halloween card ( so Cute!), and all the pieces of Halloween papers.
Response: So happy you loved everything, it's so good to read such a nice comment! Yes, we have fun for Halloween every year!
Comment: Awesome swap... and two for the price of one?! Ha, thank you so much! European Mantis info was so interesting, especially why the female eats her mate. You took a great portrait! And that brown bug is so cool too! I enjoyed reading your thoughts on extraterrestrials: you and I have similar ideas about that. Extra Hearts!! ♥♥♥!
Response: I'm so so happy you loved my swap so much! It was very interesting and I was excited to share those photos and infos with you!
Comment: Hello, beautiful fairy! I absolutely adored the Halloween letter and photos you sent! Would you like to be pen pals? I feel we could be fairy friends! If not, no worries! I’m so grateful for a peak into your sweet tradition. All the best! =^__^= Dominique
Comment: Such a lovely letter I hope you have a lovely time with your celebrations. If you even want more info on Samhain and the other festivals you mentioned in your letter let me know I'd be happy to send you some stuff.
Comment: Very nice letter, made a cup of tea and sat to to enjoy your little booklet. What a nice way to look back at your summer!!!Lots of time went into that for sure. Always glad to swap with you!!!
Response: I'm happy you received it! Lately it looks like mail travel faster. Can't wait to hear from you!
Comment: Hello Salome! Received your lovely swap and LOVED hearing yours story about your lovely kitty! I just was thrilled to read each page of your marvelous letter! It made my day your sharing me of your story! It was absolutely beautiful!
Response: You can't imagine how happy I feel you loved my letter so much and felt moved so deeply!
Thank you for the great letter and photos. It sounds like you had a lovely week. I have visited the Loire Valley very briefly and visited a few of the beautiful castles.
I lived in northern France for a year a long time ago.
Response: That's great you've already seen some of those castles! I'm glad you enjoyed reading me!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely photographs & postcards, such majestic & beautiful castles. I live just a few miles from Warwick Castle (I actually drove past it this morning). I've only been to Paris (three times) and a few years ago I spent a week in the south of France (staying with a friend in Antibes, but also visiting Marseille, Nice, Monaco & I did love the beaches and villages near the mountains. I really miss travelling! Thanks again for the photographs.
Response: I'm happy you loved my photos and postcards! It's always a pleasure to swap the beauty of my country!
Comment: Dear fairylover,
thank you so much for the gorgeous journals. It was such a delight to read through all of them. Thank you for hosting this swap and becoming a good friend of mine. Thank you again.
Lots of love, Julia :)
Response: This swap with you is the best I've ever had!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter and the photos of your beautiful Cockatiel and your cats!! They are lovely!
We have a black and white cat named Luna and she is very much as you described Dana to be!
Thank you!! I hope you and your family are well and are safe and happy during this strange time in the world!
Response: It was a pleasure to swap with you and I'm happy you love the photos! Everybody is safe here, thank you!
Comment: As usually you send a 5 heart swap. Enjoyed the letter, little die cuts. You have so many cool cuts especially with words. The pictures were great to and yes the bee one was awesome. So many colors in the flowers too. Stationary is beautiful. I should try to water color and print paper up! It just makes me want to try it.
Comment: Hello Salomé,
I got your pictures and the super cute flip book you made! I loved all of the pieces, and how colorful they were. I also adored the pictures you sent me. It is like finally meeting you almost in real.
Thank you again, and can`t wait to have the next swap with you! :)
Lots of love and stay safe, Julia
Response: I'm so happy you loved my photos and flipbook, it feels me with joy! I'm sure you'll love our next swap even more!!
Comment: Thank you so so SO much for this ATC. This ATC is just so stunning!! I also am thrilled to have the pics of your pets for my album!!! Your note made me happy, too! I made it to my PO for the first time in a month today, and your envie brought me so much joy!
Response: It's delight everytime I see how much my swaps bring joy to people! Thank you a lot for this joyful comment!
Comment: Thank you for the letter and photos! I love the one with the bee too. Working in your garden sounds like a wonderful pass time during quarantine. I loved the pic of you and one of your hens. My girls are pretty feisty too so they don't like to be pet or held, except one which i raised from when she was 2 weeks. She likes to be pet and loves to get her cheek rubbed.
Response: I'm happy you loved my photos, and the one of my chicken! Yours look so lovely! Thanks a lot for your nice comment
Comment: Great communication, we had an issue where we thought it had gone missing but it hadn't, mail on my end was being super slow. Thank you so much for this well thought out piece of mail and for your pacients. You rock
Response: I think all swap botters have to be patient, and communicate in case of problems because most of the time, there's no real problems, only worries because of the postal services! At least that's my experience! I'm happy you loved everything! Maybe we can be private swappers in the future!
Comment: Thank you so much for resending after the first one got lost in the mail! Such cute things, and the envelope is really pretty too! I especially love the bookmark :) It'd be fun to do a private swap in the spring/summer, just let me know whenever you want to do some!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything and it reached you so quickly! I'll contact you again in spring or summer for a private swap.
Comment: Hi Salome!
Thank you for such a touching letter and photos! I forget how much I rambled on my profile and it made me so happy you read through it! As for the year for the photos they have, I wanna say a aged/sepia feel to it. My first thoughts say 90s, but I can be bias cause I'm a 90s kid.
But I'd say a warm Sunday afternoon maybe? Also your home is so beautiful! All that green! The panda and lion were so beautiful! I shall put them in my journal!
I really want to send a response to your letter, but at the moment I'm getting over a cold and work has been really busy lately. However I will really try to write you back and send it out to you before the end of this month! Stay tuned?
Response: Sorry, I forgot to reply to your lovely, long comment, I love reading such long comments, thanks a lot! I'm happy my letter and photos pleased you so much! I was offered an Instax 2 days ago and I'm crazy about it, the quality is a lot better than the sprocket! I plan to host some Instax swaps in the coming weeks and months! I'd be happy to swap with you again!
Comment: oh my gosh!!!! i super love your package it’s so cute and i love everything!!! the paper quality is good and honestly i can barely tell the difference! i’ll be happy to have a private swap to trade different sorts of things :D Thank you so much im so glad that you were my sender <3
Response: I can't believe you received my swap so quickly, I thought it would take weeks and weeks! I'm really happy you love everything so much, I like pleasing people who have the same interest as me! I'll contact you someday soon to talk about a private swap.
Comment: Thank you for the big and lovely card 💛 I hope you're having a wonderful Christmas so far with new beautiful craft supplies!
Here in Portugal we mostly celebrate Christmas on the 24th dinner, we have boiled potatoes, codfish, egg, cabbage and a variety of desserts. We eat way too much and then open the presents at midnight! The 25th lunch is way more relaxed!
Have a nice 2020!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, note and wishes. Holidays are celebrated a bit differently in Poland. The most important day for us is Christmas Eve, because it is a time of meeting the family, reconciliation and peace. I will gladly write you some interesting facts about our traditions. Thank you for these extra goodies. Never enough of gift tags ;) Merry Christmas!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything, and thank you for the long comment! I think most of people in France celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, I'm not sure a lot celebrate it on the 25th as us.
Comment: Thanks so much for your lovely card and goodies. I really liked what you said about that feeling on Christmas day when time has stopped, so very true and I feel it must be the same for so many of us. Thank you, have a lovely Christmas.
Response: It's good to know I'm not the only one who feel this way! If only time could really stop, or Christmas day repeat again and again!
Comment: OMG! I loved the ghost stamp on the envelope. I am suffering with Anxiety and nervousness since the accident. So I know where you are coming from. Thanks so much for letting me take part in this swap. It was awesome.
Comment: Thank you for this neat swap. Whose face is that on the purple postage stamp do you know? Very nice textured back grounds on your ATCs. I loved your Halloween outfit!!! Great photos. I can tell you enjoyed yourselves. You are my first swap from France:-) I’ll try to send you my Halloween picture of being Jack Skellington. This was a fun swap I look forward to swapping with you again in the future 🎃
Response: I'm happy you loved my swap so much! On the stamp it's the French Marianne, a symbol of France. I'd be really happy to see some of your Halloween photos and maybe we could private swap for Christmas.
Comment: Greetings Partner & Host:-)
Thank you for the totally awesome swap!
I loved the ATCs!
I loved the letter!
I love the decorated envie!
I love the letter!
I loved the swap!
I’d love to be your pen pal if you’re interested🌻
Response: I'm so happy you loved everything so much! I'm sorry I have enough penpals but maybe someday we can be private swappers. The 2nd ATC swap will leave tomorrow.
Comment: Thanks so much for hosting this fun swap! I loved hearing about Halloween in France. My boys and I love Halloween. We here in the USA are flooded with Halloween stuff. The die cuts you sent are amazing and I will definitely put them to good use. Most of all, thank you SO much for your kind words. You are one of the people who make swap bot great for me!
Response: Thanks a lot for your very nice words! I'm happy I gave you joy! I plan to host similar swaps about Christmas in a few weeks.
Comment: Thank you so much Salome, the card you sent is lovely. I have put it on my fireplace for Halloween!
I really enjoyed reading your letter and learning about your Halloween traditions, I may even start hiding gifts in the garden to find at Halloween that sounds like such fun! I live Halloween my husband and I had a Halloween themed wedding last year and it was great. Many thanks Shelley xx
Response: I'm happy you loved my letter and I inspire you for making fun on Halloween night! You're Halloween themed wedding must have been amazing!! I wish you a happy Halloween!
Comment: Salomé, I loved your letter very much. Reading it filled me with a kind of happiness from childhood. It's very interesting to learn about Halloween traditions (or there lack of) in your country and town. I think it's quite magical you have a life partner that loves to dress up and celebratewith you. The photos of your costumes are awesome! I love that your cat dresses up as well, it's very cute! I hope you get to have a great Halloween this year and that it isn't too cold. We usually get snow in October here. Thank you very much for the goodies as well!
Response: I'm so happy my letter filled you with so much joy! Your words are really heartwarming to read! Thanks a lot!
Comment: Bonjour dear Salomé! I am sorry for this late rating, but I wanted to thank you for a great swap! I so loved the flipbook you made for me! It brought a big smile to my face. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm happy you loved it, it was great fun making it!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful pictures. Love the one with the pond. Just looks magical to me. I too love walking near the water and through the woods. Special being so close to Nature. Thanks again.
Comment: I love having you as a partner... both send-to and rcv-from! Water Lily (fav!), Cosmo and Rhody! oh bummer, that your own flowers are sun burnt. Great enve and Love the unicorn stationery. Thanks for everything!! ♥!
Comment: Hi, me again. Loved the pictures of the castles. I lived for a year and a half in Germany (near Heidelberg) and I kind of fell in love with them there. I did tour a few of them. Love anything historical. Thanks so much for sharing.
Comment: Hi thank you for the lovely photographs, we have a cat as well, just the one, I don't think t could manage any more than him, he's a handful :) I love Castles and it looks like a beautiful part of the world.
Comment: Salome, what beautiful photos you sent to me! The pink ones are like some that my mother used to grow; they look so delicate and fragile! And I love the happy little faces on the violets or pansies, whichever they are. I've always like those flowers! The other photo shows a wonderful color combination that I've never seen before - are they dahlias? Sooo pretty! I loved the envelope you sent them in as well - Castles fascinate me and if I were to visit your area, I'd definitely have to check out the one near you!! I agree with your boyfriend that it's very frustrating to buy flowers and look forward to enjoying their beauty throughout the summer, only to have the terrible heat burn them up! I hope next summer is not so bad, but who knows, right? Thank you for such a wonderful swap! Best wishes to you!
Comment: Hello :-) , thank you so much for this nice Swap. Thanks for all this tourist information to read, it will be nice to discover so many things about the wonderful places where you live. Many Greetings from Italy :-) !!!
Comment: I love your love story with Pichu! He is very lucky to have you find him and it seems like he's a sweet cuddler (like my LuLu who likes to be held as he goes to sleep!). Please say bonjour to Pichu and Dana from the Texas cats, LuLu, Baxter, and Cookie.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful photos in the lovely floral folder! I feel so special receiving something so nice. I loved the letter as welll! It was a great awesome swap in a nice pretty envie! Oh loved the picture of you too!
Comment: I just noticed that I still owe you a rating here… so sorry for the delay. You already know how much I loved your letter and to read about your sweet cats :-) Thank you so much for a lovely letter <3
Response: I still have do much to share about them with you!
Comment: Wow, the package you sent me is Awesome! Thank you so Very much. The photos are great, you were super generous with extras, and packed up with such care. And I loved reading your letter!. I can't decide which photo I like best... maybe the one of you next to the pond. ♥!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything! Those real photos swaps are my favourites! I'm your partner again for the critter edition, I won't be able to afford so many photos but I think you'll love those I'll send.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcards and the lovely letters on the back. I was in Paris last summer with my little girl and I have been there a few times before. I love Paris. Haven't been to the countryside of France yet, but seeing the pictures and reading your stories make me want to go there even more! Xx Monique
Comment: I need more than one heart to give you! So many goodies, wonderful pictures, and such a sweet letter!! I thank you a thousand times over! You inspire me to keep doing these swaps! I'm open to suggestions for themes :)
Response: I'm happy you loved everything! I'll send you a private message to give you suggestions!
Comment: Hello Salomé!
Thank you very much for your really nice and interesting letter and the lovely pictures you enclosed. :) It was nice hearing from you again. My letter was sent today and should reach you soon.
Comment: Thank you very much for your lovely letter, Salome! I really enjoyed reading from you. Such a pity that you aren't looking for new penpals but of course I do understand. Greetings from Austria!
Response: I'm happy you loved my letter! Sorry that I can't have more penpals, so many people ask me that I'd be overwhelmed with so many letters to write! I plan to create some Europe only swaps for May, check the new swaps if you're interested.
Comment: Thank you so much for doing this swap and all of the wonderful goodies you sent as well as the beautiful ATC! As well as sharing your beautiful story about spring with me!. I'd love to be possible penpal if your interested.
Response: I'm happy you loved everything so much! About penpalling I have to think before to accept, I already have some penpals and I want to be sure it wouldn't be too many for me as I easily feel stressed and under pressure when I have too many letters to write. But if you want we can private swap some things and short letters as the one I sent. Send me a pm if you're interested...
Comment: J’ai adoré lire ta lettre et j’étais super contente de voir que tu viens de France, c’est plutôt rare d’avoir des lettres écrites en français. Merci pour les extras et de m’avoir donné le nom de deux artistes ! Ça m’a fait rire quand t’as dit « glandouillé » parce que j’adore utiliser ce mot. Le zoo de Beauval a l’air d’être vraiment sympa !
Response: Je suis contente que tu ai aimé ma lettre! Oui c'est rare de trouver des français ici mais pour un prochain échanges l'une de mes partenaire est aussi française ! Si un jour tu veux faire des échanges privé, n'hésite pas a me contacter !
Comment: Thank you for the very glittery card!
I learned to drive on snow, so it's no big deal for me =) But we haven't had much of it yet. It has been cold, but when nothing falls from the sky, there will be no snow ;P
Comment: Oh my, you must have a'ladda supplies to resource from! Each item I pulled out had my attention. I have organized them in front of me now and wow! I'm smiling - thank you for putting SO MUCH thought in details and catering to my profile. I love it all.
Comment: Hi Salome,
Thank you very much for the lovely stationery you sent me - the duck themed papers are simply adorable! Actually, they are so adorable that I'm not sure I'll even manage to use them :D
Have a lovely summer!
Comment: Really thought-provoking letter. I enjoyed reading it and will definitely write back. :)
Response: I'm happy you loved my letter, I'm always a deep thinker, even too much! It will be heartwarming to receive an other letter even if I think I won't be able to write back but I'll let you now...
Comment: I loved the handmade card! I never thought about other countries not celebrating Halloween until you mentioned it! I hope you have fun! P.S. I still very much believe in spirits and ghosts. :)
Comment: It is very colorful and I like the way you ripped up the book page and reattached it-stamping the dragonfly and then adding a diecut one was another very creative move! Thanks for the extra Halloween notepaper=Happy Halloween to you too!
Comment: Thank you very very very much for the envelope full of awesomeness:):):) I love it :):)This really made my day :):):)I will pass on the idea of giving:):)â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: It's so heartwarming to read such happy comments! I'm really happy I made you so joyful!
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC, Salome! It's so gorgeous and I love the textured and layered look! And please let me know whenever you'd like to do a private swap, I'm always interested :)
Response: I'm happy you loved my ATCs! I love craftying for others. I'm already in some private swaps but I won't forget you and I'll contact you someday. If you really really want to do private swaps, send me a pm
Comment: If I could give you a million hearts I would! This atc is so, so cute! I love it very much! All of the extras you sent are great, and your letter was absolutely wonderful! I can't express how happy it made me when I read it. I think that the happiness someone has when creating something is the mark of a true artist. Thank you so much.
Response: Such comments are so heartwarming to read and it worth all the efforts I make in my art and gifts. Thanks a lot for writing so nice things!!
Comment: Thank you so much for both the ATC. They will fit in nicely with the rest. I know what it's like, wanting to join a group when you don't know anyone. I tend to work alone myself. I would like a good quilt group, though. Thanks also for the extras. Hope we swap again.
Comment: Hi Salome! Thank you sooo much! Yours was the first ever swap I received and it was so special. The envelope, the note, and of course the journaling cards: everything was perfect, and so much more than I could have hoped for. I was also so surprised to receive mail from France. Everything was fantastic and really made my week! Thank you! =)
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC and extra die cuts. I will enjoy using them. We used the same quote! See mine here: https://plus.google.com/photos/116475306870159229859/albums/5908775734597733169/5974246483293486882?pid=5974246483293486882&oid=116475306870159229859
Response: Hey, that's a funny thing that we used the same quote! It was the one I loved the most of all those I found :)
Comment: Thank you. I do love the earrings you sent, the long dangly pink/silver ones are just amazing! Thank you also for visiting my blog/etsy shop, and for the sweet compliments. :) The ATC you sent is great. I forget that the pyramids were the start of stargate, because I usually watch the later seasons, were those aren't the main focus anymore. This is like, "old-school" stargate. Thanks again!

Comment: What a lovely letter - it made me chuckle a few times with your story of your cat! And thank you for all the fun cat goodies - even the napkin which is great since it has cats on all panels! I loooooove that you included the Holland stickers for me even though you didn't need to. I am goofy about Holland so they will be cherished. No one else gets them!
Comment: Hi Salome, Thanks for the lovely ATC! Your ATC is great and I think you will find making them fun and addictive!! LOL Thanks for the extra trim papers and the fairies and kitties!! I love to receive letters and enjoyed reading all about you. Your bunnies sound great! Thanks for a great swap and it is nice to meet you! :)
Comment: I can't believe this is your first ATC. You did a fabulous job, I'm happy to hear your bunny is better. It sounds like you and your boyfriend have a lot of fun together. Thank you too for the Halloween pages.
