Comment: Amber, thank you for the lovely card! What an awesome message. As much as I love the heat, I am happy to have some of this cooler/dryer air too, it was almost 90 degrees on Christmas this year, crazy! I'm still wearing t-shirts and flip flops but I had to take out thick leggings finally, lol. Hope this year brings you good health and happiness!
Comment: Those recipes you sent look delightful! You're talented. I love the apron (and I needed another one so its very appreciated). Baking my birthday cake tomorrow so will start its purpose tomorrow. Tried to NOT open your box till my birthday but that just didnt happen. LOL But now I get to use my present early. Thank-you so much for thinking of me :-)
Comment: Hi Amber! Both pcs made it here today and with it being a snowy sort of gloomy day, they were very welcome! I am with you, come on Spring! LOL! You really did not have to send two pcs but it was sure sweet of you and very welcome! Hope things warm up there, I think we are getting another really cold blast tonight (down to 1) and the weekend might be wacky - sigh! Thinking warm thoughts! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a lovely birthday package! I loved everything! The stationary will be put to good use and the nail stickers are gorgeous! I especially love the dragon decal! I just adore dragons!
Comment: You were really quick with that swap! Thanks so much for the postcard, notecards, AND thank you card! :o) I spent some extra time admiring the postcard. I have never seen crystal caves! Very cool! :o)
Comment: I agree with you. Love especially when each does their own special craft. I am also into fabric, being a quilter. But I was also an art teacher, so I love it all! Look forward to swapping with you too some time.
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful package! I love the fabric and thread. I'm thinking of making a stuffed pumpkin with them. The buttons are wonderful and I will certainly use them on a future project. I LOVE the lanyard and luggage tags. I wear a lanyard everyday and like using different ones. I think I will wear this one on Monday!
Comment: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the bags. Thank you so very much. I will carry the eeyore bag with pride. I have never seen a produce bag before but am definitely planning to try it out when we grocery shop. Again THANK YOU so VERY MUCH for my special bag.
Comment: Wish I could give you a zillion hearts...you, again, out did yourself! The swap items are fantastic! I never would have thought to take a plain tote and
applique the swap theme on it. So clever. The addy labels are so cute. And thanks for sending the 'extras' that I can glue on envies and swaps. And sending zippers in the swap colors was very smart. You are GREAT! HUGS, geri
Response: Glad you like it :) I almost didn't sign up for the swap because I couldn't find anything in the stores with watermelon on it. Finally I decided I could make stuff and joined after all. When I saw I was to send to you I had some ideas since I've seen your profile and wish list so often! hehe
Comment: Time for smiles! I love all of the pink/red goodies you sent for this swap! I really like the old fashioned design on the FQ. Buttons, ribbon and embroidery floss are so appreciated. The mug rug for my coffee tops it all off. Thank you for the nice package!
Comment: Thank you for the good read. Your Etsy shop is adorable. I love your cat hats and could totally see myself with some of your bags. I'm a crocheter, and have tried my hand at working with fabrics for some of my dolls.. Im awful. So more power to you!
Comment: Extra hearts and higher rating to you!! I LOVE the potholder and the handle holder. I will be making this recipe for sure when the weather cools off and I start cooking with the oven again. This sounds amazing and the pumpkin would be great in it. Can't wait until it cools off. Thanks so much.
Comment: Hi Amber, I must apologize as I received your bookmark a couple days ago but neglected to rate. Thank You very much for the bookmark, I sincerely like it. And thank you for your sweet addition with that perfect little recipe! Blessings in Him, Pat
Comment: I so know what you mean! There are so many double standards. We've come a long way but we are no where close to equal yet! A lot of women want "equality" but still want old school chivalry and other exceptions made for them. You can't have your cake and eat it too!
Comment: Thanks so much! I was really glad to get an ATC. I just made my first but really wanted to see what someone else's looked like before trading.
Response: You're welcome. I've seen some ATC's that are much more awesome (at least in my mind) then my ATC's but one of the great things about ATC's is that you don't have to be an expert, just do your best.
Comment: Hi Amber,
Thank you so much, It is just wonderful, Save the last dance for me...Was My Grandparents song, They danced to it back in 1986 For the Golden wedding anniversary. I sadly lost both of them in 1987....It is a lovely ATC. You are a good artist. Thank you so much. I am so over the moon. Thank you so much for looking and doing the ATC for me. xx
Comment: I had never heard of that song or group so off YouTube. The video was neat with the retro toys but some of the lyrics- "I get a thousand hugs from 10, 000 lightening bugs" Now that I would like to see ;-) Thank you for the card.
Response: hehe The book is written by a friend of mine and is not mass published. Amazon used to have it and still has a little description about the book: http://www.amazon.com/Transmutation-NOW-Phil-Geusz/dp/0977186768
The only place I currently know of to get it from is: http://www.raccoons-bookshelf.org/main.sc but you have to contact the site owner, Mike and ask for it.
I really enjoy the book personally. Basically Dr. Franken is a geneticist and had worked on the main character. :)
Comment: I LOVED the passage you chose for this postcard! I really hope the postman, all the sorters at the mail office, my neighbours and anyone else who came into contact with it read it >_<
It sounds like some sort of message between members of a cult lol!!!
loved it, thanks!!
Response: Your profile stated that you like fantasy books so I grabbed a book I have that I really love that involves princesses, dragons, castles and such.
I opened the book and that was the first passage I read, taken out of context it sounds so odd that I knew it was perfect! :)
I read it to my friends who were visiting at the time and they all busted up laughing!
Comment: Thank you!
I am very happy with my package, I especially love the felt gameboard. It will be put to good use since I have a 5 year old daughter :) And the bookmark is already in my current book!
Comment: Thanks Amber for the background on this. How exciting to be an extra.. I didn't know Gwenyth could sing. I'm not crazy about her voice after listening to the song, but it's exciting for you and so thanks for sharing.
Comment: Not only is it cool to get an e-mail from another Amber so nearby (I'm down in Antioch), but it's really cool about you being an extra in the movie. I don't blame you for really liking it and it sounds REALLY cool!
