Comment: Thank you so much for the beautifully made inchies. I'm very grateful that you could resend, but it upsets me to think of the previous 6 lost somewhere in the postal service. Great Swapper. Thank you.
Response: i know---- but hey i am glad the 2nd one made it to you!
Comment: very pretty atc, thank you very much!
I appreciated the invite to the inchies but I had to decline at this time because I can't get involved in another craft/collection at this time. Maybe next year!
Comment: Thank you so much - what a completely fabulous swap! I adore the inchies, and REALLY appreciate the extras. Your hand-carved stamps are fab! Thank you for making my day! â™¥ (The new house is great - we just got a new furnace and central air installed the other day. Pricy, but so lovely to have - no more overheating at home! :D)
Comment: Ha ha ha! We sent each other the same theme! Thank you for the fun ATC. Yes, I'm Japanese-American. Born on base in Yokosuka. All this talk about Japan has me craving kasutera now :) Happy swapping!
Response: you like kasutera? i like all those japanese sweets. dango and taiyaki, and more!!! lol it is getting so sticky here. cannot wait for the rainy season to be over!
Comment: So funny how much we have in common! (Except I'm not pregnant, lol). I love the inchies and extra zentangles. The horse one is probably my favourite because the horse is so cool.... But they are all awesome! Thank you!
Comment: Tommie your collage inchies are wonderful -- as always. But your hand-drawn ones are so special! Especially the green birdie and the pink flowers. LOVE! So happy to add them to my collection. <3<3<3

Comment: I have received your ATC's in post today and it was exciting to see them as I have been having it hard lately so you sooo cheered up my day with your ever so lovely ATC's. The zentangle is my first one I have received and I do it very much. I love what you did on the Paris ATC also and thank you for the cute stickers.

Comment: wonderful! 1. Your vintage inchies are beautiful. 2. the owl note card is great. I have to send my grandma photos of my kids so I will use this card for that. 3. the carved owl ornaments are too cute, I'm sure they are styrofoam but they gave me a craving for marshmellows!
that was made out of clay. when it dries, it feels light.
Comment: The ATC is fantastic - the color is perfect - reminds me of plants and the leaves are drawn with fantastic zentagles on the ATC. VERY cool! Cute snowman stamp you made on for stamping on your note too. hehehe
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Inchies and the cute envelope =D

PS: Your hand-carved stamps are simply amazing!
Comment: Tommie, your atc is adorable, and I can't believe you sent me a hand-carved stamp. I have been dying to carve stamps, but I'm a little intimidated. The ponytail girl is just perfect; thank you! Kathy

Response: aw thanks for the sweet msg! glad u like them all. happy halloween. xxx
Comment: I am going to give you a 5 and an heart because it is a lovely atc and I feel it is my fault that I did not say it had to be hand painted/drawn in the swap and just took it for granted that everyone would know this because it was a group swap and we are a hand drawn/painted atc group. Thank you for being in the group and my swap and most of all thank you for a lovely ATC.
Response: duhhhhh..... i am sorry i misread! such a goof. thanks for the rating n heart tho!
Comment: Oh, my! Thank you so much for the cute inchies, Tommie. I loved them. I also especially loved the very artsy-cool decorated envelope, the arted-up notecard and the cute, tiny envelope of punchies! You really make me want to start decorating my envelopes more than I usually do. I had slowly, but surely, gotten away from it without really noticing. Thanks again for a great swap. :)
Comment: Thank you! Lovely Inchies, it was difficult to take them off the cardboard without destroying the back. Thanks too for the nice decorated envelope. I think we need to swap for punchies, i love the frog, fish and oh the rabbit is really cool.
Comment: I always enjoy your work (they look awesome), I love the way you package the inchies - Thank you for the extras. Love the envelope too, thanks for the simpsons stamp don't have any of those :)

Comment: Thank you so much, I absolutely am in love with everything you sent. I can see how much hard work went into it and I love the coins, I was showing them to everyone at work. I also love that it is authentically Asian from my Asian partner. Thank you again.
Comment: Hello, the skinny is beautiful, I love the wing you used. The rubber stamp is awesome! It is so cool and I was thrilled when I saw it. It may be the best gift Iv'e ever received in a swap. I'm going to mount it to a block of wood and will now use it for my note cards.

Response: aw! i am so happy you liked everything. the origami was easy as it is in my blood :) tommie
Comment: I love how you hand drawn the inchies. I am too afraid to try to draw on a small space. I'm not much of a drawer anyway. I am the queen of hot glue. Maybe I'll make a hot glue mountain on one of mine one day. They're all great, I can't decide which is my favorite.
Comment: I haven't gotten inchies from you in FOREVER! These purple zentangle-type doodles are wonderful! Thanks so much - nice to receive from you again! Hope you have a safe trip back to Japan - I'll be thinking of you!
Response: i know! it is so nice to swap with you again!!!! tommie
Comment: Oh my god i LOVE the inchies!!! They're so cute! Yes i would love to try them someday, but i think they'll drive me crazy cause the lesser space i have to decorate, the madder i become >.< ATCs have already driven me up the wall LOL
Comment: This is my first matchbox I have ever received & it's absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed going through everything neatly & lovingly tucked inside & the outside is decorated so beautifully, too. Thank you!
