Comment: These ATCs are remarkable!! I adore them! I love the mermaid tail, and funny story - I was just thinking, on my drive back from the PO, about how I've been SO slack with Pokemon Go and need to get going again. Thank you for the stickers also - the hands off my sticker jacket made me crack up. Love it all!
Response: Yay! Yeah I've been playing PoGo less as well... Like I think Sunday was the first day since it started I didn't even open the app. My friends here are losing interest too. D:
Comment: I love every silly to whimsical genitalia you send me. :-D They're all so fantastic, that at this point they have a whole page in my binder! Thank you so much for them and all the thoughtful extras!
Response: Hah! I have sent you a few. Glad you like it! XD
Comment: Wow! I'm in amazement of huge envelope of Deco Books & delights. Thank you, you are wonderful, so kind. My enjoyment spending time decorating a page in each Deco Book. Bonus print sheet will be gratefully creatively used for my arts, crafts. Happy Spring!
Comment: I was super excited when I opened my mailbox and saw this beautiful envelope waiting for me. I LOVE everything and wish I could rate you higher than a 5 and give you multiple hearts!!! You did an amazing job on the Steampunk ATC. Did you make the card as well? I love it and the envelope decorated to match. I really like the cute cupcake ATC and goodies you tucked in, too. Thank you so, so much!!!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you liked it! I was worried it was missing since it took awhile to show up. I did do the card as well, with gelli printing. I'm so glad you liked it!! :)
Comment: Oooo, thank you for the great decos. I'm inspired to work on all of them! I'm so happy to have one of your cactus ATCs, too. I'm looking forward to swapping decos again with you in the future.
Comment: AhhhHHhhhh! PURPLE DARTH VADER! 😍🤩😍🤩 He's epic! I actually have a little rubber stamp of his head and purple is my favorite color to stamp it in. It just looks right (and fabulous). Thank you for all the awesome ATCs. I love the anatomical heart and the hot air balloons and house, too! You've got some serious drawing chops (that's something I never had the patience to work out). Thanks also for the fun stickers---I didn't know I needed sloth stickers but now it's obvious.
Response: Yay!! I'm so glad you liked them! The darth one was a lot of fun, I wasn't sure I could pull it off. Really happy they arrived safe and you liked them! :)
Comment: We have a lot of the symbols. I love how you did your ATC. it inspired me to redo mine on something other than the white paper I used. I used a book page and love the result. Thank you for the second ATC, as well. I love it!
Response: oh nice! A book page is a great idea! Love to see how that turned out. Also I just noticed I hadn't followed your instagram yet... going to do that now! :P Glad you like the ATC.
Comment: WOW. I don't even know where to start. You know I love your artistic stuff and am blown away by the pieces that I now own. You're so creative in addition to being an absolute sweetheart.
I was kind of amazed it made it to me because my address was torn off in the middle. I'll have to send you a picture of it. I guess I'm well known to the post office so they knew where to take it. :D Love you. xo♥
Response: OMG! I'd be curious to see the picture... I think I'd used clear tape on that envelope so it would be protected, I wonder what happened to it. O.o I'm SO glad it made it to you and that you like the ATCs.
Comment: Ty for the amazing swap I received today! The atcs were very cute don't mind getting the same style at all and if we ever swap again and you've premade just send it. I wouldn't have been upset with an owl since it was mentioned in the swap and I chose to join it anyway. And the extras LOVED them especially the oddish! Thanks again for the great swap.
Comment: Oh, I SO hoped I would get the hairy balls!!! They look so.... well proportioned... :D Thank you very much! I am not sure what you had in mind when you made the "tasteful" boner-ATC. I am absolutely not sure... O_O But I love it! :D And I am so happy about the paper pieces! Did you made them with a gelli plate? They look fantastic! My first gelli plat experiements failed completely. I think I have to watch some video tutorials.... Thanks for this amazing swap! :)
Response: Haha glad you like them! There are really good video tutorials for gelli plates... I've had great success with that!
ETA I was thinking about this, and I realized "tasteful" in that context might be a USA colloquialism! Just means "classy" or "appropriate" so... trying to be ironic. That totally might not have come across! LOL
Comment: BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! I LOVE your As! The all-over-boner one looks so cool.... And the extra butthole-flower one is... Well... I laughed tears when I saw it and as soon as you receive my mail, you will know why. :D Just fantastic...! Thank you for those ATCs and the super cute sticker-extras!!!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like them! Pretty entertaining to make. XD
Comment: Thank you for the two Deco Books you sent to me for the swap. Happy Summer!
Response: Happy summer to you too! I think I sent decos to you twice recently... I sent a RAK we'd talked about before with 2 decos, and then got you as my partner in this swap (with 3 decos). So you might have another on the way if you haven't already received both!
Comment: Loved the swap. Thank you for the goodies. And you're not boring! I'm thinking I should be more responsible now though. Ha! Happy Swapping.
Response: I'm so relieved it arrived (and wasn't boring LOL) I was worried it would get lost or something since the envelope was different.
I'm way too responsible, I don't recommend it! LOL thanks for rating and for the heart!
Comment: Emma, I received your handmade pc today and love it! The honeycomb background with its oranges and yellows is set off so nicely by the gemstones you added! It's a beautiful card; thank you so much for sending it to me!
Comment: Hello Emma!! I think that is a wonderful resolution! Great for you and your partner;P Not something I have an issue with usually, not sure if that's something to brag about or not...
I LOVE love LoVe that your postcard is one of your pieces you made! I'm totally on the website now about to order some cards too!
Comment: Emma, thank you so much for the wonderful ATCs for this swap! I love the technique you used on them; I especially like the blackout poetry one. I've done blackout poetry before, but had never thought about using it on an ATC. Thanks for the extra stickers too. The little Frenchie in the blue sweater is so cute and the others are already inspiring future projects. Great swap!
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it! I love blackout poetry, but it takes forever to find pages/phrases that work. Really fun when it does though! Glad you liked the swap. :)
Comment: Hi there, thanks for the postcards, I agree, my favorite swappers are in FOPS as well. :) And yes, an unsolicited nudie pic occurred, not with me though the offender did do something not very appropriate towards me, but I can't even recall what it was, or even who! It was someone from Germany, I want to say. There was a big public fracas in the forum and he got banned earlier this year.
Response: Thanks for the rating! That is terrible Definitely something to avoid!
Comment: Please please please forgive me! I thought I already rated you! As I went through my notes, I saw I had not and checked here just in case. Sorry! Thank you so much for such a pretty deco and the goodies!
Response: No worries! Thanks for rating, glad you liked it! :)
Comment: Emma, I love the postcard! What a great effect you got with the different techniques you used! It had so many details that I had to keep checking it out to make sure I didn't miss anything. I think I'm going to love swap-bot; it's a great feeling to find fun mail instead of just junk mail and bills.... Lol! Thanks so much!!!
Comment: Awesome postcard!!! Thank you!! I am going to a postcard swap / meet up Saturday 1-3 in downtown phoenix, you should come if your free / interested!! (send me a message if you want the details =))
Response: That sounds really cool! I don't think I'll be able to this Saturday, but I'm totally interested in things like that. :) So glad you liked the PC! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the zen W! It's beautiful! I feel lucky I get to add it to my collection. And the found poetry ATC is gorgeous, too. You do such lovely work! Thank you also for the stickers. I love everything. A basket full of hearts to you!
Comment: Yesss!! Thank you for the great science deco. I love it! I also enjoyed the very cool anatomical heart ATC. Thanks again. Yes, I would love to do some private swaps with you. Just let me know what you have in mind.
Comment: Opened the lovely envelope while my mother was visiting and after a wonderfully giddy chuckle, she wanted to see what I had. "They're hypodermic needles", I heard with a fright to her voice. Nooo...it's a beautiful Saw Trap I told her. She didn't quite get it but I am very happy. Love the outhouse too. What a special package. Thank you so much.
Comment: Hey, Emma! Thanks so much for the cute dino/science deco. Yes, we named her after Maeby from Arrested Development! Have you seen the recent series on Netflix? It's not as good as the original but i enjoyed it :)
Response: I was super disappointed by the recent season! Especially the ending. I LOVE that name for a cat though! :)
Comment: I purchased a box of books at a garage sale this summer. In the bottom of the box was a stamp album. I'm pretty sure a child did them as they were in a photo album and were stuck to the backing. They were not a good quality for collectors, so I've been using them in my paper crafting. They are USA and foreign stamps from the 60's and 70's. This Deco will be getting some of them. Thanks for the note cards too.
Response: Nice! That sounds like it will be really cool looking! I'd be paranoid about accidentally crafting with a valuable stamp lol... My crafting stamps are from mail I've received.
Comment: Emma, thank you so much for this special deco! I love the unusual materials and design! Thanks also for the notecards. I will definately use them. I really like the unusual notecard you used too. It will probably find it's way into my art of some kind. Such a great swap!
Comment: Hello Emma! Received your package today! Wow! I am so glad to be able to work on both of these wonderful Deco books! Thanks so much for the wonderful extras! Have a great week and happy swapping to you!
Comment: Thanks so much for your cards, I love them! I think you did a great job! <3
Whoops I meant to say thank you for the amazing postcards too, sorry! Thank you SO much! Cougars are my favorite animals :)
Comment: Another interesting deco! Thanks so much, Emma! Thanks also for the stickers, paper, cute little note AND the gorgeously decorated envelope! I'll definately be recycling that into atcs, journal pages or who knows what. :)
Comment: Love this book and so glad you sent it! Passed it on the day after I got it. Raccoons are pretty cool. Had one as a pet for a while. But ya, wild ones can be disgustingly nasty! Happy Halloween!
Comment: This is a cute book. I hope you get it back as well. I try to join the deco book swaps for the same reason, hoping to one day get back all the ones I have floating around out there. Love this butterfly ATC, too! Thanks so much, oh... and the HP stamps on the envelope!
Response: Thanks! Maybe this will be the one that comes home! :P
Comment: Emma, thank you so much! The great Deco arrived today, and you are right - this was a good one to save for me! I have already gathered my materials and hope to start on my page in the morning. Thanks also for the stickers and note. I will deginately be reusing that paper and parts of the envelope. Recycle! :)
Comment: Thanks for the deco and stickers. It's the third time this year you've sent to me, I've had the same luck with sending to another gal. It should change soon to someone else that you'll get over and over. lol
Response: Haha hopefully! It's fun when it mixes it up a little more! Thanks for rating. :)
Comment: OH MY GOD. Do you ever see something that just makes you cackle? Not even laugh, just full on witches cackling and you think "thank god no one else is in the room because I don't want to explain this to anyone else". The googly eyes got me. They got me so hard. Just imagine... if a dude just... whipped it out and ... GOGGLEY EYES! I don't even know what I will do with it. Does it go on the wall by my desk where the very best things go? In my smashbook? Do I send it to my sister who has an involuntary silly willy collection (it's quite lovely)? It will be cherished forever. Your tangle atc is also lovely, this rating is getting out of control long and people visiting your profile are going to get to see that you are a praised dingus drawer. Please let's swap again, any time you like. Just say the word.
Response: omg!! I'm so glad you liked it! Yours was so amazeballs I was worried you were going to be disappointed by them! I'm super happy you liked it. XD
Comment: <3 thank you for taking time to read my profile! I totally don't mind a Cinderella deco that I would decorate a page and pass along, when i state Cinderella in my dislikes i mean for items i would keep. I can't wait to decorate this deco
Response: Yay! I figured you'd like that one betree anyway! :)
Comment: Thanks for the decos and the cute postcards! I'm excited to start deco'ing!
Response: Crap I thought one of them had additional pages... Was there a "passes" page or blank cover page? Those should count as pages that can be decorated too. I can send you an additional one if you like, I was sure one was a non-homer.
Comment: Thank you for the decos! They just arrived today. I love the illustrations you drew on the covers lol! It'll be fun signing them. Thank you also for the extra charms! I should be posting my swap by Fri or Sat. I ended up getting some more decos from my friend the other day, so I want to get those signed and moved on.
Response: Nice! Glad you liked them and I look forward to getting yours. I really want to see these come back to me, I was so excited about making them!!
Comment: Super cute decos you made! Thanks for sharing! And thank you so much for the super cool smash supplies (I haven't seen those before!) And the insanely cute lil notebook!!! (Everyone is going to ask me where I got it!) :)
Comment: What a gorgeous cover you've made for your Deco Book! I can't wait to work in it! :D And thank you for the ATCs too! They're really cute! :D Yes, Wheel of Time is Awesome! I actually got away from reading them about a year ago, I need to pick them back up!
Comment: Hi! I'm late rating because I forgot to update my address to my new one on here and had you send to my old one where my Grandma still lives, who I am visiting now so I just got it! Loved everything, the deco and the mini zines!! Thanks so much. xx
Comment: TY so much, I'm a huge Johnny Cash fan , so I loved the postage stamp & the postcard is going to be my first "Blythe Doll collectable". I just recently learned about the dolls & I can't wait to get one!! Have a gr8 day!!
Response: thanks for rating, glad you liked it! :) Blythe dolls are adorable, I don't recommend buying one and looking at cute Blythe clothes on Etsy unless you want to be tempted to spend way too much money!
Comment: Wow! I love both the samplers that you sent, absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for all the extra goodies as well. I was so excited to learn that you're a WOT-er as well, it always seems like a party when you find a fellow fan.
Response: I know!! I was at a wedding the other day and parked next to a truck with WOT bumper stickers. Itt was the most exciting thing.
Comment: I LOVE that zenned doodle. ^_^ Going right into my awesome zen page. (also thank you for the buttons. mixed in was a tiny snap, just the size I was looking for and I only needed one so I kept putting off buying them. Everything about this swap was awesome! )
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I was seriously worried you'd be disappointed since the one you sent me was so amazing. Really happy you liked it!!
Comment: Thanks for the great Escher card! I'm amused that were unfamiliar with my profile's books/movies--I probably thought of the more obscure ones first when I was doing that. I'll have to add some more!
Response: Nothing wrong with obscure! :)
Glad you liked the card.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your 2 music picks. I liked the first one but was not too crazy about the second one. Sorry.
Here is my song pick. Go on-line to Youtube and type in "pentatonix drummer boy" I just love how this group does my favorite Christmas song:-0
Merry Merry Christmas!
Comment: You rock Emma!! I love getting stuff from you!!
Lovely decos . . . Girl, I'm gonna make a deco from your card you made! The buttons are adorable, you sewed then on! Thanks for this swap. Decos are my new obsession!
Response: Glad you're not sick of my stuff yet! :) Decos are super fun!
Comment: Oh, Emma. The sweet kitty card deserves a heart of it's own...and then there's the incredible zentangled leaf on a book page! I am so impressed with people who zentangle so beautifully...the patience! Thank you for being a wonderful swap partner.
Response: I'm really glad you liked it!! Zentangles are really fun, it doesn't seem like a patience thing when I'm making them! XD
Comment: Nice job on this PC! It almost looks as tho you melted the colors after you colored them. Did you? Thanx for sending me this PC. It reminded me of a field of poppies the first time I looked at it. blessings, ellie
Response: Glad you like it! I didn't melt them, just pushed really hard and then covered it in mod podge.
Comment: Emma, I love the owl. I've done 2 altered bird books. If I don't do another I'll do a garden book and he'll go in there. My 2 bird books were swaps I've received over the years. Have several besides yours so just may have to do another. Love the cards (vintage <3 pic) and the grape ATC could go in my garden book quite nicely. Thanks for all.
Comment: I thought for sure I rated you! I am so sorry. Now I need to go through and make sure I didn't accidentally rate someone else for it (I did that this week with a zine swap. It's the narcotics that make me fuzzy sometimes). The ATCs were all awesome (I believe you sent 4). Thank you so much and I wish I could send you more than 1 heart!!!
Response: haha thanks! I'm glad it arrived and you liked them!! XD
Comment: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ More extra hearts for you! You put so much neat stuff in here. I love the bottle cap with the finches? Crows? Reminds me a Darwin drawing of finches. And the orange D20 will liven up my set (I'm in a zombie apocalypse RPG right now, hehe!). The papers and stickers and tickets and playing cards are all so neat too. I think my favorite bit might be the fake leaves. I have a fill-in recipe book with one like that on the cover and I've always wondered if I could obtain some. Hooray!!! Thanks again. :D
Response: So glad you liked the stuff! I wanted to cram it full of pink flowers, but I resisted the impulse. :P
Comment: Love it, love it, love it!! I had a little trouble getting it open (weak hands over here) but managed to with out spilling everything out. Love that we sent each other our initials. :D And all the orange brads! So cool! I really love the skull and deco tape. Thanks so much, and thanks for doing the private swap with me! Extra hearts for you ♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: Wow, I absolutely love the poetry atc, and the extra butterfly one was gorgeous. I adore the plastic wallets they were in - never seen those before. Where did you get them? Also loved the notecard you sent them in. It is so pretty. Wish I could give 100 hearts!
Response: So glad you liked it!! XD
I got the sleeves from a nerd/game store. They are for the card game Magic: The Gathering. Those cards are the same size as ATCs, and lots of cool sleeves are available at any store that sells Magic: The Gathering stuff. Try places that have board games or Dungeons and Dragons type stuff, or sites like this: http://www.cardkingdom.com/catalog/view/2818
Comment: Emma, I wish I could give you extra hearts.Thank you for everything from the gorgeous envelope and card with the note inside to the two fabulous ATCs. The flowers were lovely and you were quite right in thinking I would enjoy the altered text ATC. I've just recently made my first ones and love them now.Thank you so much, happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome card and the extra card! I did miss the first few swaps so this is wonderful for my collection and very considerate. Keep up the great work! btw where did you get your beautiful stationary? It's lovely!
Response: I got the stationary at Marshall's which is like a discount/second run store we have around here. I'm so glad you liked the ATCs!! Thanks!
Comment: Thanks for sharing your great board! I had to repin some of your pins (I also followed your board!) :) Haha, yes, I have a corgi puppy who's about 6 months old right now, but I don't have public photo albums anywhere. There are some pics of him in my blog, SOMEWHERE in there... not many, just a few, and I don't remember where. :') Haven't had time or energy or motivation to publish any ''proper posts'' for a long while, only swap ones. Have a great day!
Response: Glad you liked the board! Your I'm swooning over thoughts of corgi puppies again now... XD
Comment: Ohmigosh the mana ATCs are TOO COOL! I was confused at first what swap I did that had 5 ATCs but knew right away once I saw the red and green ones. I am so lucky to have gotten you as a swap partner again! I did a 3d magic card atc for mine... hopefully the recipient likes it as much as I like what I got. I did mana symbols out of craft foam as xmas ornaments for a friend last year if you are ever looking for another mtg themed craft idea
Response: Glad you like them!! The mtg ornaments sound really cool... That would be a neat holiday swap! XD
Comment: I am so sorry! I thought I rated you! I love my willies! Thank you so much!!!!! Two willies in one! Gotta love them! Thank you very very much! I archived the swap without rating I am double super duper sorry. Brain fart!
Response: Glad they got there ok and you liked them. Thanks for rating!!
Comment: Thank you for putting together this swap, and for your wonderful email! Your comments about the Dangerous Muse guy & his faux 'Britishness' made me laugh. I enjoyed the Golden Smog song and will definitely be listening to it again. x :)
Comment: Hi Emma! You did an awesome job on coordinating this swap, and I couldn't get into golden smog no matter how hard I tried but I have to admit I kind of liked the rejection by dangerous muse, haha. Thanks!!!
Response: haha glad you sort of liked one of them!
Comment: I love the way you did the map with words.....and the licence plates on there are way cool!!!! THe seahorse is very good too...I liked living in Hobbs...the sunsets were so beautiful and colorful...Hugs's 'n â™¥â™¥â™¥'s
Response: Glad you like them! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks! You sent twice as many cards as the swap required and several rare cards!! I really like the Mitotic Slime. I've never seen him before! I think he'll be fun to add to the nasty green and black deck I am working on. :)
Response: Mitotic slime is pretty awesome! He'd go great with Parallel Lives or proliferate cards! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely octopus ATC - he looks kind of sad and sweet! And thank you for the extra ATC of the owl too - not only is he also cute, but I liked how you layered the tape and the tags to form the background . . . must try that!
Comment: Yes, I received your beautifully wrapped gift yesterday. I'm going to unwrap it on my birthday. I'm sure I'll love it. I already love the pen that you attached to the gift. Thank you so very much!
Comment: Thanks so much for the Minnesota ATC. I thought I commented but apparently I didn't. I am very sorry. I have had the CRAZIEST week with work since I work at a store and its holiday shopping and its also finals week for me. I do very much appreciate it.
Comment: OMG! I LOVE what you sent me! Crayon earrings + rainbow earrings + COINS!! You seriously went beyond with this. I loved it and shared some of the coins with my sister, too. They're excellent--I never had coins from Ireland, France OR New Zealand before. And the orange crayons are so cute! Did you make the earrings yourself? Thanks so much!!
Response: I did make the earrings! I am SO glad you like them <3
Comment: Silly girl! I could never get tired of getting ATCs from you! Thank you for the cool heart ATC - it's very similar to the one I made (drawn on cardstock and then mounted on a background) - love the little "necklace" of bling that you added to it. Thanks again!
Comment: The "bubble" ATC you created for me is so cool! You did an awesome job on the bubbles and I love the background too. Thanks for the punchies, the cat stickers, and the Kawaii stickers - I love it all! I really like the flower punchies that are punched from paper with text on it. Thanks again - your bubbles rock! :)
Response: I am so glad you like it! It was a fun theme to make!
Comment: Thanks for the unique ATC. I love it. I also love the sleeve that you sent it in. I have not seen one like that. Will certainly put the extras to use as I really enjoy making ATCs. Many thanks and a heart to you.
Comment: Thanks for visiting my blog. Am still new here, and am enjoying the swaps, but sometimes feel bad that we have no dollar stores here to get some treasures! Love your Etsy shop!
Response: I am glad you like my Etsy! I have never found dollar stores to contain many treasures... it has been sort of the opposite in my experience. I steer clear of the dollar store item swaps here on swap bot... I would much rather get handmade stuff than something I could buy personally!
Hope so swap with you again!
Comment: Hey Emma! Thanks for reading my blog. I love taking photographs in crazy thrift store finds too! I took a look at your blog too and I really like your taste. Take care and keep blogging!
Comment: Yay, I have a Mothman ATC! He's awesome and you did great!! I just love it. Thanks for the extras too. Neat card! Yeah, it's difficult having our men away :) I hope you have some supportive people at home! I know this would be a lot harder without my mom. Thanks for the card and sending such a cool ATC :) :)
Response: I wish my mom lived near me! My parents live in different states from me unfortunately, but I do have great friends here who keep me occupied! I am really glad you like the mothman ATC!
Comment: I love this ATC! Thank you so much for basing it on my profile, I just love it to pieces. Thanks for the little extras as well, though the ATC itself is very worthy of a heart all on it's own!
Response: I am so glad you like it! It was really fun to make!
Comment: OMG, awesome card! What could be cooler than a hand-drawn octopus in a top hat!? Thanks!
Be sure to put the full name of the swap though, including the number--some of us are in a lot of Free Theme ATC swaps.
Comment: Thanks so much for the ATC's I loved them and I love the extra ribbon you sent. I will be using those soon in a craft I am sure. I was actually excited to see that it was atc's from you. I have seen you around on here and noticed you liked doing atc's so I was happy to finally see some of them. You are really good at them. I am just getting started in the world of ATC but I have noticed that it is very addictive and I can't stop. I just hope others bear with me while I figure out my mediums and get better at them overall. So anyways this comment is way too long now, but thanks again!
Response: thanks! I am so glad you like them! I love making and collecting ATCs... I wish I was better at drawing and painting, I love receiving those ones but I struggle to draw anything I like!
Comment: emma, thank you so very very much for the fabulous steampunk box you made for me. oh WOW, it's so cool and i just love it. you put a lot of hard work into it and i love the velvet inside too as an added touch. Superb! Thanks again.
Response: I am so glad you like it!! It was so much fun to make!!
Comment: Lovely layering of the papers on the ATC, it makes for a very nice effect. Are they stamps, the blue is so vivid that at first I thought they were die-cuts! Thank you for the extra owl ATC, it is very sweet.
Response: It was stamps! I absolutely love Colorbox inks... they are super messy and hard to clean off stamps but I haven't found another type that inks that vividly and goes on random surfaces as well!
Comment: A great selection of goodies - I will definitely enjoy using these things! Its nice to receive from someone in Arizona. Its my native state. I grew up in Tucson and also lived in Scottsdale for a few years. I still love visiting there.
Response: yay Arizona! I can't imagine living anywhere else now. Glad you liked the swap.
Comment: I am absolutely THRILLED with the owl in his log. What a wonderful presentation! You also sent some wonderful rainbow items. I will definately get to use the single color ones like the pink fruit and the great little monapoli house. (I always want the game pieces but the games are too expensive to use just for my art.) Thanks for an excellent box!
Response: I am so glad you like it! I was worried it was too simple in execution or something...
Have you tried goodwill type thrift stores for games? Sometimes they have really cheap games at those stores.
Comment: I really enjoyed all of the extras and the packaging, the box itself was super cute so I felt like you deserve the heart. But I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more Owls to go along with the theme.
Response: sorry, owl ephemera is really hard to find! My understanding was that the box itself, not the contents needed to be owl related. Sorry to disappoint.
Comment: Hey! I we were swap partners before for a similar swap. New stuff on this recent CD mix.
And the Hawksley Workman CD, got me grovin' when i was slowly inching through holiday season-traffic the other day. thanks!
Comment: I received your mix today. I looked over the artists and I know a couple of them. It looks great ! I have yet to listen to it. I like the scrapbooking paper you used for the jewel case inset. I also really like the pretty bottle cap pendant. Thanks so much for everything. Have a Wonderful Autumn and a Terroriffic Halloween!
Comment: Fabulous. You had me at the envelope! I was so excited when I saw it in the mail. The camoflaged butterfly was quite clever. How did you do it? The texture made it look vintage? Is it decoupage medium? I haven't experimented with that yet. And of course the purple butterfly is my fave color. Thanks so much for swapping with me.
Comment: Hi Emma,
thanks for the very cute steampunk ATC - the gears are a very cool touch. And I think you have the right idea; making websites for fun is a lot more enjoyable than making them for a job! :D
Thanks for the fun extras - they will be put to good use.
Comment: OMG! I <3 this card!!! You picked the perfect subject for me... my little "Spooky" cat :) Mine really adopted us, he was born to wild cats that surround our neighborhood. He's the sweetest cat I've ever known. I love ferrets too, but I have only one now and he's my last... since my boyfriend developed allergies to ferrets :( Anyways... seriously! You rock!! yay!
Comment: Thank you so much for Edgar Allan Poe stamps, I love love love them!!!!
I hope you will like the stuff I sent, I hope I have sent enough, if you feel I haven't when you get it, let me know and I will send something else ok? :)
Comment: great zine. and thanks for the extra stuff. I usually try to use my own photos for artwork then I don't have to worry about copyright infrigement in case I decide to sell the artwork. We used a lot of royalty free stock at work. You mentioned free artwork, make sure you read the fine print, sometimes it's just free for personal use but if you want to sell the item you made with the photo you may need to pay a licensing fee. PS Your the first zine I've rec'd:)
Response: It's pretty clear on Deviant Art which pieces can and can't be used, and for what. That's why I really like it for stock.
In case it wasn't clear, the final pieces in the zine were by me and the stock I put in was in accordance with the artists' terms.

Response: I am so glad you liked them!! It was a really fun swap to make!
Comment: I love your octopus!! Unfortunately, it's blind right now...it's googly eyes fell off in the mail journery. Must have been rough going:) I'll do some surgery and he'll be as good as new. And thanks for the extra papers.
Response: dang! I thought the glue I used would definitely hold them. Must find better glue. Sorry!!
Comment: Thank you so much!! I love everything in the tin especially the postage stamps, papers & stickers. I like how you decorated the outside of the tin as well. You packed it really full and it was a treat to receive! AAA+
Comment: OMG! That was quick! Thank you so much for all of the Pandapple stuff, and thanks for searching for a panda necklace for me (I'm having such a difficult time finding one.). I loved everything! Excellent swapper! :)
