Comment: <3 <3 <3 <3 <3...That's extra hearts for you!...No wonder you took this out to show it off...If I were working right now, I'd be taking into work to show off too!...What a great job!...Thanks so much for such a wonderful swap!
Response: I'm SOOO glad you like it. I tried to find fabric that would fit you per your profile, and sounds like I did good ! tee hee
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATC's. However I wanted to let you know that the envelope came apart and the whole thing was delivered via the dreaded "We're Sorry" plastic bag. Thank you for all the extras too :)
Response: Thanks for letting me know this, I'll be sure to put some tape around the edges of my envelopes to avoid the "we're sorry" plastic bag in future.
Comment: Colleen, this is one of the most wonderful postcards I have ever gotten! Do you have to do anything special to get the stamp to stick? I thought I may want to try doing one of these someday. Thanks so much! Lynnie
Response: Oh, I am so glad that you liked the post card, the fabric ones are my favorite to make. I do put a dot of "Aleene's Tacky Glue" under the postage stamp. I feel better about the stamp not falling off that way. Thank you for the rating !
Comment: Your card actually arrived a week or so ago, and I was so happy because it is awesome, but then it disappeared! Which is why I forgot to rate you until now. I must turn my home apart until I find that card now! Thanks so much for more great art
Response: Maybe it "flew" off somewhere? tee hee.
Glad you liked it so well, don't stress about it, but...hope you find him again soon.
Comment: Colleen! Thanks so much for the gorgeous ATCs! These are very well put together pieces of art, everything you used screams vintage! You did a great job! Thanks so much also for the great extras, I love old images and book pages! ♥
Response: Thank you ! "Vintage" is one of my favorite themes. You can do a lot with a little and make them look "old". Have fun with the extras. Thanks for the rating and comment.
Comment: Y is for Yipee! When you messaged me to say it was going to be a few days late, I assumed the worst- that I'd get a postcard that was hastily thrown together at the last minute simply to avoid a bad rating... I am thrilled with the yellow fabric postcard! I had never gotten a fabric postcard before, and all the embroidery and beading makes this one even more special. Thank you!
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you liked it. I had it started, and was in the middle of the embroidery when I went to the hospital. I wanted it to look nice, and "not" hastily thrown together. I'm glad I could be your "first" fabric PC. I like making the fabric ones the best !
Comment: Thanks for a very texture-y card (texture - it's what's for dinner and/or swapping, apparently)! I love the lace and also whatever you did to it to make it antique-y. I'm wondering - is the red wire something to do with Missouri or is it just there to be pretty!
Response: red wire was an "experiment" in the postal system... see if it would get caught up, and attach itself to other mail to bring to your house he he, no, nothing about Missouri that I know of, just there to be pretty.
Comment: Very nice card! Beautiful colors, excellent craftsmanship, and your packing tape idea worked marvelously - the beading came through totally unscathed and pretty and shiny! I also appreciate that you paid attention to the direction of your stripes. Now it's off to my sewing machine to get your card finished up...
Response: Glad to know that my "experiment" with the beads and packing tape worked. I'll be using that on more post cards then !
Comment: Dottie thanks you for her new squeaky toy! she got so excited when i pulled it out of the package and squeaked it! :) she and i both love it. thank you for the mighty tote pattern too. i'll have to make one of those for myself soon! :)
Response: I hope Dottie has lots of fun with this new squeaky Toy. I read your profile, and thought you'd enjoy the tote bag pattern. I've been making a couple lately for friends... they hold Everything !
Comment: A very **HAPPY** swap indeed! I love the tote bag you crafted for me with all of the lovely pinwheels. The colors are so pretty and stuffing it with my things will be so much fun. Thank you Colleen and if I could, I would give you a million ♥ 's
Response: Oh, a million would be great! Glad it was such a successful swap on both our parts. Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank for your the lovely note card and note. The bookmarks are great especially the one you ae for me. I am also anxious to try some of the cross-stitch patterns. Wish I could give you more than one heart,
Comment: It was the best package ever! I will have enough papers to write letters on for a lifetime. :) My favorite was the little bags full of random small beads and stuff. Thanks for putting so much effort into my package!
Response: I don't know about a lifetime ! LOL So glad you liked it. By reading your profile, I was able to go to my "stash" and found everything I sent you without spending a cent except on postage. It was lots of fun, and again, glad you liked it. So, I guess nice is good, but nicer IS better !!
Comment: Oh, what a wonderful little package! Thank you so much for your tasteful and very creative ATC's. I just recently fell in love with fairies so thank you also for a beautiful card (how did you know?:-))
Comment: Apologies for not rating you sooner (I thought I had but thank goodness I double-check).
Lovely ATCs - particularly impressed at how you made the sketch of the girl fit so well with the text :) Thank you!
Comment: What terrific ATC's! I really like how you put fabric behind the old car and then used brads on the ends of "travel." I also liked the ribbon on the one about Paris. Thanks so much for the latin papers. I never took latin in school (being a 'California girl' they mainly pushed Spanish) and I really enjoyed reading them. Thanks for swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much! I adored the thimble - you were right! it's nothing like the ones i have... and the maps and stuff from your hometown i am still looking into... such a beautiful place! :)
Comment: Never did such a small envelope hold so much goodness. I loved it all, thanks Colleen. I already used a bit of the lace on a fabric postcard for a friend's birthday. It was the icing on the cake (literally). Thanks so much for the awesome package!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely cards, and the two sheets of print. They will come in handy on future ATCs. I love the use of embellishments on each card. Thanks, too, for hosting these swaps! Have a good day.
Comment: I just loved your ATC's, and the Sears & Roebuck brings back memories, my dad had one of their old catalogs and I remember looking through it for hours..Thanks for the extras, this was very nice of you..Thank You
Comment: I am sorry. I got signed up by someone else and didn't know it. I later joined myself and had been using another account. Apparantly, they signed me up for this swap but I hadn't talked with them. I did get your card in the mail but was unsure what it was for! I will send yours out this week. sorry it is so late!
Response: Hmmm sorry to hear yours was late (?). I mailed them all off shortly after the March 20 date, and nearly every one responded that they received theirs between May 19 and June 12th. which at the latest notice, would still have been a week after the June 7th due date.
Comment: Colleen went above swap requirements and sent me two thimbles instead of one! Great swap. I'm so glad you decided to have the swap after all and not cancel it. It was a small group, but we were awesome! :)
Comment: Colleen went so far above and beyond on this swap that I truly don't even know where to begin to thank her. She exceeded the parameters of the swap, and that alone was heart-worthy, but it was the incredibly kind words that accompanied the swap that leave me speechless. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Comment: Colleen sent so many nice things and a nice tantalizing e-mail to tempt my curiousity and it worked I could not wait untill christmas day... It was the what goes on the wall for christmas that got me.... Oh how I love everything..I did leaveit near the tree.
Thank-you for making a nice holliday for me. connie
