Comment: This thing is so cute! I've never seen a 'pocket letter' before, either! afaic it's pretty good! And your letter was very sweet, about spending time with your dad. I'm gonna have to start a new box just for zines and things like this! The crow wax seal is legit, too. (you know you can put feathers and string under your wax?) see ya around, LadyCry!
Response: And ribbons and lace... O I love playing w wax seals I have ocer 40 of them theres lots you can do with them. I recently saw a few new things I want to try... But to do that I need to find one thats just flat no pic to impress in the WAC. Then aparrently you can use hot glue over pressed flowers and the seal makes a pretty flat window. Any way I'm glad you liked my very 1st evet mini picket letter
Comment: I love the paper art you sent! Although I will say that this wasn’t described as a PC swap and unfortunately your art was damaged in route. I’m sorry to say so because it is lovely- but ripped and parts are bent. Also postage is owed because it’s over-sized (only 15 cents). But I do thank you for sending - Happy Swapping.
Response: I will send you a replacement I'm sorry it got damaged
Comment: It's so pretty! I can't wait to add it to my keepsakes box. So much love and work on every page I was like a kid trying not to flip too fast so I could see and touch everything! Thank you very much!
Response: I'm so glad you like it. It was too much fu making it. Definately going to do it again
Comment: I received your seahorse PC and I absolutely love it!! I don't mind at all that it was in an envelope: happy mail is happy mail however it arrives, right? I was so impressed with the techniques and the textures you used to make this little beauty, and I so appreciate the amount of time and creative energy that you put into it! What did your sister think of your upcycling of her tablecovers? Or maybe, like mine, she's used to such transformations by now... Lol! Thanks for including the info on what you used to create it; I might try this technique on a future project. BTW, the colors are perfect; love the mix of different shades!!! Thanks for a beautiful swap!
P.S. - I loved the decoration on the envelope as well, and the wax seal! I don't often see those!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the postcard, I loved how you had put some effort on your card. I bet the mom of your friend who wet his pants for the warmth of it was delighted for this "habit", haha. I can actually still remember the feeling myself.. warm yeah but the itchy feel after was all but nice 😜
Response: Lol I used to hate it I'm so glad you got my sense of humor I was worried glad you liked it :)
Comment: Absolutely beautiful piece of art!! I ran into the closet to see the glow in the dark detail! That was an amazing touch! This is the best art work I have received on swapbot! It really is amazing what emerges from dabbing here and there! I couldn't believe that because it looks like you intentionally made the best effort in making the best art work you could. And you did! I'm going to get a frame for it. Thanks so much!!!
Response: Wow what a sweet compliment thank you so glad you liked it. Isn't it funny how things just happen sometimes and u go oh this is cool. This piece was like that. Also I can just see you checking out the glow lol.
Comment: This was such a beautiful card. I really love the detail on the Punjabi lovebirds!🐤 I looked up big fatties art but couldn't find the craft you were referring to. Still, I hope your project goes well! Thank you again.😊
Response: Big fatty can be found on YouTube on Liz drake's channel. I'm hosting one here you should join it would be fun to see you in it. I'm glad you liked the love birds.
Comment: Thank you Misty for your lovely swap both with the butterfly note and letter and all the beautiful goodies that you included in your swap! All could be used! THe bookmarks can be immediately put to good use! Thank you for thinking of me and i loved your seal in the shape of a butterfly! Marvelous! Thank you again!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything some of it I wasn't sure about. As to the wax seal I'm addicted I have 26 and have ordered I think about 4 more but there is probably 20 more I want. I order them a little at a time and use them all the time because of swap not :) which gives me the perfect opportunity.
Comment: That's a pretty sweet drawing. I do enjoy swapping and imagine the places the items I sent go. Lots of fun to be able to connect with people around the world. Happy swapping and thank you for the card
Response: You are welcome I'm glad that you liked it
Comment: I loved the postcard! I especially loved the frog and his big eyes.
Response: I'm so glad you liked him both animals were quite the challenge. Funny thing when I picked out the 4 animals I was like I really want to do the fog and gazel wouldn't u know it u picked the frog and she picked the hazel it wasn't till I began drawing each of them that I found out just how much harder they were than I had thought they would be. I'm really glad they turned out
Comment: Thank you so much! Loved your card! How do you decide which card to do? Looking forward to swapping more!
Response: I just look at my deck and a card speaks to me then I do it. Then when I get a signed names I look at the cards I've drawn and go ok this one goes to... And then send it. I must be doing ok deciding who gets what bc every time people r like u picked just the card I needed idk how that happens but I'm glad u liked it
Comment: I love that you did this yourself... it is fabulous!!! I also love your attitude towards art...... It is awesome being the artist and thinking about your artwork traveling all over the world. Yours is so intricate and such masterful handwork. Thank you for sharing it
Response: I'm glad that you liked it I try and only do hand made things as I'm kinda obsessed w creating. I'm doing so much art right now that its pretty crazy so its nice when people appreciate what I do :)
Comment: Hi! Thank you for the great "doodle" which looks bought! I love it and will defintiely be colouring it in. It's even better because I sent a black lined doodle on watercolour paper to my partner also (I painted mine). I shoild've left it uncoloured too - boohoo :( I will follow up once your masterpiece is complete :)
Response: It will be both our masterpiece then. Love that you will color it can't wait to see it. Also glad to here that u think it looked store bought that is a huge compliment so thank you! :)
Comment: I love your drawing! ðŸ‘ðŸ’• So cute, thank you--and the packaging was just lovely (even though my rough post office wrecked the envelope a little, so boo on them!) Thank you for swapping with me!
Response: I am so glad that you liked the card. I got both the velum envelope and the little ATC envelope and the wax seal and sealing stamp on wish :)

Comment: Oh my I wish I could give you more stars!!!!
The book is beautiful!!! How did you make the cover and with what? It was my first time to but mine did"t look anything like yours. Love the different sayings you put in made it more special with you writing them! I have never seen pretty paper bags where did you find them? One again thank you for the beautiful book!!!!!!
Response: I am so glad that you like it :) I made and shipped 2 of them I think you got the one with the pink Paisley cover that is made w watercolor paper and a piece of meterial I got at a thrift shop that was supposed to grow into a dress but is not it grew into many a journal instead. The pink and blue bags I got at Smith's grocery store. But u can get bags w colors and prints at Michael's, benions, and hobbie lobbie too.cant wait to see how everyone did w this. I'll post pics on my Instagram of the several I've made since then cause these go so fast! U can c those on ladycyr :) again glad u liked it
Comment: The drawing is great I love it! I have been taping up thin ribbon or embroidery thread in a horizontal line on the wall and hanging my favorite postcards/ATCs and such on them with tiny clothes pins. This is going up for sure! and thanks for the recipe. You cook like me, no measuring. I will try it out soon :)
Response: i am so glad that you like the pic enough to mak it to your string. i always loved those that is a great idea i have been keeping all my swaps in a decorated shoe box. it is almost full and i am wondering what i will do next to keep them :) a treasure for sure i just love getting all my swaps
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful addition to my collection. You did do a wonderful job on the 4x4 and I'm glad you didn't have enough time to make another; so you had to send this one. â—¦Â°Ëš(â›â€¿â›)/ËšÂ°â—¦
Response: i am glad that you enjoyed it. i rather like how that one came out too :)
Comment: Your Halloween ATC is awesome! I love all the different elements!
Response: i am so glad that you like it if you liked it i am hosting my 1st swap its a halloween art journal your card i sent is a sample of what kinds of things will be in my journal and i would love to invite you to join :)
Comment: I got your awesome ATC series, I'm so in love with the unirhino :D I love how they're all so different but still definitely a serie, thank you so much :)
Response: The rhinosaurs unicorn is was my fave of the bunch I drew him twice so I could keep 1 Lol I'm glad u loved him too. I was only going to send him but then thought no I'll do the horse version sorta... Since mine is a zebra and if I'm going to do that than why not the naewale. But the narwale is kind of odd and mostly boating so I this an Alaskan tribal one. Glad u like them and that they got to u all the way from Utah USA lol
Comment: Thank you so much - I love the 3-D hedgehogs!
Response: i was so worried about this one. wasnt sure it was going to qualify as an atc per how thick the puffy little guys made that card, but i just had to and i am more than pleased to know that you like them as much as i did when i made them :)
Response: i am not as good at water color as i want to b about 1/2 the time when i am playing with them i can not think of anything to paint o little landscapes happen as i am pushing color around thinking up what to paint so i am glad you like it :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful landscape - the clouds are so well done, and I love the little flowers surrounding the majestic tree.
Response: i am not as good at water color as i want to b about 1/2 the time when i am playing with them i can not think of anything to paint o little landscapes happen as i am pushing color around thinking up what to paint so i am glad you like it :) clouds in watercolor are always fun sorta pretty and easy to play out of the paints so glad you like it
Comment: Lovely card so glad to find someone else who hand draws. Just make sure to use a sturdy backing ( like a thin cardboard or a thicker card stock) so it's not so flimsy as
some swappers will definitely rate down for that ðŸ˜Š
Response: ok thank you i thought that would be ok per taht is the ones i bought already cut to the right size perhaps if that is the case i should glew 2 together to make them stronger.
Comment: Thank you for the ATC - I love it. I've been on swap-bot since the beginning and often run into the same people in swaps. I think it just shows we share the same interests.
Response: be on the look out i sent to you again :) today. i am glad you like the leaf i was a bit unsure how that one would go over but i liked ti so i had hope. it is nice ti hear when something you were unsure of goes over well thank you :)
Comment: What a wonderful ATC! Such an excellent ATC.You are so talented.This one goes in my very special ATC collection.
Response: awesome that is so cool that you loved it. my inspiration for it is that i am working on a coloring book and had drawn a steam punk girl for it a wile back, i shrunk her and changed her just a little when i drew her for you. i was going to do a mixed media but then realized i don't have much that would have worked so i just drew her instead i am glad you lover her :)
Comment: Wow and thank you. The journal is so original. I can see now why it took you 300 hours to make. I love all the hidden places for notes and journaling. It's over the top and I love it. By the way the cover is way cool. Your such a good artist. I really appreciate all the work you put into this journal. I'm not sure yet how I will us it but I know it will be for something special. Thank you, thank you.
Response: i am relieved that you like it :) i worried when it began getting fatter and fatter and fatter, i began to worry. i hope you will like the drinks and recipes chose for you and i hope the seeds grow beautifully for you. id love to see what becomes of it if from time to time you want to send pics of its evolution. i am so glad you liked how i handled the 4 seasons in the cover. i think i need to paint more people as ive only done a few and each time i am impressed and surprised with how well they turned out. i loved playing with her hair and the shading and it was tricky figuring out her butterflies. also there was probably 100 other things i wanted to include in each section but decided it was time to stop so you would have places to add all you to it. :) enjoy creating in it as i had so much fun doing that too :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC! I've heard of versions of this story, and I hope to read it again soon! :)
Response: i am glad the card will inspire you to read the story. once you have done that if you want to read my version you can do so on allpoetry.com where i write under Star Of Atlantis my version of the story is called once upon a time. let me know if you do read it :)
