Comment: Thank you for the beautiful collage and the kind welcome. Also, this was such a fun package to open! I loved the little envelope. I will check out the swap card swaps, sounds right up my alley!
Comment: Hi Mary, wow I love what you made me(quilted flower) I love it so much!!! Thank you I'm not sure what I will do with it yet but I'm leaning towards sewing onto my denim jacket...this is a real treasure for me. Your the best! I really appreciate it.Happy summer swapping peace love light
Comment: you never put anything in my journal. this woman is out of her mind. nothing she has said about me is true
Response: three months, and no response - with her 17 "3" scores I don't have to say anything - that says it all. If you read them you will see most are from "not following the rules of a swap. She even gets quite demanding that a late or incomplete swap be changed to a "5" rating, somettimes even if the swap wasn't sent until 4 MONTHS late! Before this swap ever started, EVERYONE had to commit to sending each journal onward within a week...AND to keeping us all informed, so that I could track where each one was.
.....in the middle of this swap, she misplaced/lost/ or forgot about THREE journals (we only had seven swappers in the swap - she held one of them for FOUR months, then suddenly found it -
- - she posted TWICE to the swap page - in six months! - she logged onto swapbot every day, but probably never returned to the swap page. I am very sorry this happened I did want to make this a good swap, and fun for everyone, including her - so I offered to add to her journal, or send her some pages for it- and i would happily pay for postage... it accounts for my ONLY rating other than a 5, since I've been here...(from the beginnig)
I do hope you won't judge me for this, If you have any questions or concerns about me, or my swapping, please send me a message or just post it to one of my swap pages. I wish you well, thank you for reading this...as a PS - - I just looked in my own journal....she NEVER added anything to my journal either!! I'm still chuckling at the irony! If you are reading this, please be well - I do hope you do not get her as a partner in a swap
Comment: I have a huge grin on my face!! Thank you so very much for your beautiful notecard and extra papers in it.

Like mother, like daughter 😀

Comment: One day I saw a very beautiful fabric sewn flower on Pinterest and I fell in love.I pinned it to try it one day.And opening your cute hedgehog card, there it was :the lovely fabric sewn flower. Ok, maybe not the exact the same one but I'm still loving it. Thanks !
Comment: I love the cards. Thank you. We haven't had snow since the beginning of February, and it seems like spring is going to come, so I am happy about that. Of course, we never have as much as you are talking about. We had about 6 inches at our biggest snow, and all of NC shut down for about 3 days. :) It's nice that everything gets quiet for a little bit. I love the snow, but I looking anxiously forward to the spring! Stay warm!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note cards. I used to have the owl ones but had used the last a while ago. Super excited to have another one. I aldi love the one with the polka dots. Polka dots are awesome!!! I can't wait to use all of them. Thanks for taking the time to write a quick note also. Made my day!! Happy swapping!!

Comment: Hi Mary-Thanks for hosting this swap! It's always a fun challenge to work with inchies-you did a great job on this lady with her "bird?" hat! Thanks for the seeds-I'll give them a try although my thumbs aren't green! Still cool here nights and everynow and then a frost advisory for northern counties so we haven't planted our garden yet till it really warms up! We plant mostly tomatoes!
Comment: Hello Mary,
Thank you for your very neat A & B ATCs You created for me. Each ATC is its own ATC. I love the B ATC with the bubbles pictures. These are a great start to my Alphabet ATC Series.
Comment: Thank you for the cards! I feel slightly guilty that I got your package before even managing to send mine, but I swear I'll get it in the mail tomorrow. The heart is for the extra cards, and also I really like the little tag you made for the swap. :)
Comment: OMG! Just realized I forgot to rate! Sorry dear I recieved these!! They are kool i like each one for different reasons love the N witht he stamp on it and everything is on there perfectly and M has some of my fave things Mickey, Misfit ( i like tho think this is the band Misfits lol ) and Minions! Thankyou for amazing way you wrapped them too!
Comment: Your swaps are so much fun, Mary! What good luck I have to receive these ATCs from you. The G card is cool with a green gingham fabric background. The Juliette Gordon Low postage stamp is gorgeous, it looks like currency! The H card is lovely; can't go wrong with horses and hearts. Thanks for the ATCs and for hosting.
Comment: Wow - Thank you so much for those most adorable Swap-cards. I've never seen such cute ones. Love the note-cards you enclosed, too. Thank you - and - Super thanks for hosting this fun swap. Happy day to you.
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed them...the swap cards are fun to make, i hope you will include them with all your future swaps!
Comment: Another great parcel I have had today, my 2 senders all did very good in artwork, mine are terrible LOL! Know what Mary?! The fabrics are just too nice, I am recalling my yesteryear of doing patchwork and quilting, but I hardly start again, too many hobbies too little time!
Comment: Oh wow, your ATCs are TERRIFIC!! Thank you for hosting this swap series. The A-card is super cool: Architecture - the buildings depicted are so shiny. The B-card is cute as a button, I recognize the "B" from Barbie dolls!! The tags and the envelope make the packaging a DELIGHT. Thank you, Mary.
Comment: I'm so sorry for the late rating. I didn't realize this had been overlooked. I really enjoyed the books I received and was able to add my part to them. I hope we get to do these again one day. Thank you so much!
Comment: Hi Mary, sorry for the late rating! I have happy mail arriving left right and center! I love your Zentangle card. It's very interesting and inspiring to see different creations that one spends time on. We are always learning, and I see a few on yours I've never done, so look forward to doing. Thank you for hosting these fun swaps Mary! Cheers â¤ï¸ðŸ˜Š
Comment: What a wonderful assortment of notecards! Now, I don't want you to feel bad, but one of the notecards made me cry... it was a picture of a little pug dog hanging out the window and the picture is of him in the side mirror in the car. Adorable! The reason I cried when I saw it is because we have a picture JUST LIKE IT that we took of our dear, departed padji. He left us on July 1st, so seeing this triggered some emotions. I will cherish that note card especially and plan to put it in one of his scrapbooks next to the picture I took like the card. Thank you!!! â¤
Comment: Mary, thank you so much for my swap which I received today. The cards are beautiful!

Comment: I love your cat ATC! Kind of remind me of one of my cats. Every time we walk near the treat container, he runs over there and gives us the sad eyes. And he usually gets them. Anyway, thanks for hosting this swap. I had a lot of fun with it. Again, love the ATC! Till next time...

Comment: Hi Mary...I love your ZENTANGLES! It's amazing to see how creative everyone is. You've inspired me for new patterns I've not even thought of, (even though I have a ton of books on them). Thank you! ðŸ˜Šâ™¥ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the little cross stitch book ðŸ˜Š I love that it's so cute and small. I used to cross stitch a lot many years ago. Also LOVED the map wrapping paper - I have never seen map wrapping paper!
Comment: Oh! Oh, my gosh! I am just in awe of the adorable little lace circle! It's so delicate I can just hardly believe it. And I love the variegated shades of lavender and purple. Just gorgeous! Thank you so much for such a thoughtful gift, and for hosting this wonderful swap!
Comment: Mary, I am so sorry but I did not rate this ATC at the time; I rated the other 2 I received but not this. I am just sorting out my ATCs and saw this; I absolutely love it; I don't know how I missed it!
Response: No problem, I'm so happy you enjoyed the swap. Thank you for signing up, and with the holidays, I am also going thru all my swaps, also, to see if I missed anyone.
Have a happy New Year!
Comment: So sorry for the very late rating for these 2 beautiful ATCs, but have just been going through my ATC folder and found these. They are so colourful. A great idea to use the cockerel to Imitate Morning and the clown for Jolly. Thank you so much :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Little Golden Book! The '60s artwork is precious! I tried to give a heart but it won't let me - perhaps because you are the coordinator? Anyhow, <3 <3 <3 !!! Also, thank you for setting up this swap! I look forward to participating in more of your swaps! -- Dana
