Comment: This was a super fun tile you sent-love the sand with the sea shells embedded in it! And the water and details are great too-this was a wonderful idea for a swap-hope we do more like this-thanks for being my partner
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I had a blast making it. I can't wait for the fall and winter installments, I have some fun ideas for them already! Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thanks Ashley for this wonderful zine as well as the zentangle tiles and ATC tiles too! Your instructions were great and I am going to add them to my other ones. I have had the same problem when I tried to copy a zine with so much black...it used up the whole cartridge when I tried it. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thank you Sherry for the rating, heart and kind compliments! I wasted so much ink trying to print copies and they didn't even come out good! I'm glad I made two from scratch, it got me the practice for making them, since these were my first!! Happy swapping(!
Comment: Hello blessedtwox. Thank you so much for the lovely 4 x 4 inch card. It's great. I love how you put the text in such a playful juxtapostion and then it's just so nicely done. Thank you very much - I'll treasure it always. XOXO
Response: Thank you for the lovely comments! and for the heart! I'm glad you liked it, I had a blast making it!
Comment: Thanks for writing extra bits! It was nice and helped get more of a feel for the "why" of the choices. :) We put a lot of the same answers. $40 a day would be $14600 a year!! That would be awesome.
Comment: Got the mermaid. She is too cute. You sure put a lot of effort in her with cutting all those strips and layering them on the tail. I see you found a use for the moss. I just couldn't figure that piece in. Very nicely done!
Response: Thank you for the kind compliments! I had so much fun decorating her!
Comment: Loved your "t" zentangle! You organized yours in circles around the card, something I haven't seen or thought of before! It was a great way to feature different patterns, yet still give them enough space to be noticed!
Response: I'm glad you liked it, I had a blast making it. And I figured most of the patterns were circular in nature, well, at least the ones I like and wanted to use. I thought it would be a fun way to do it, and I was very happy with how it turned out! Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fabulous APCs - I adore them! :) (And no worries about the Jâ™ - I gave it to my kiddo for her ATC collection, and have since received another from an AFA swap to fill in. :) I appreciate the thought, though!)
Response: I'm glad you like them! Thank you for the rating and heart! (Again, sorry about the J. Taught me a lesson about making sure to check my partners profiles thoroughly whenever possible!)
Comment: You rock girlfriend. I loved the goodies. the bathing suit is too cute and calls for a photo shoot! As we speak she is taking the headband off her head but shes loving having the fact that she can chew it! Emilies bday is november 14th 2011. Im going to save your addy and send bday gifts for your Lo's if i remember :D im a space case. everything is awesome. TY so much. <3
Response: I'm so glad you like everything! Did you get any pictures of Emilie in the bathing suit yet? September 14th 2011 is my best friends daughters birthday too!
Comment: They arrived. I've placed them all in Old Decos and Homers database. They will be moved and finished within the group and hopefully filled by the end of this year. I already found next signer for all of them so they will be in the mail by Monday after I sign them myself. Your envie is being prepared too and will be mailed on Monday as well.
Response: Awesome! Thank you for taking them. Like I said, I already felt bad sitting on them for a few months, so I was happy to find someone to take them. Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: You deserve multiple stars and hearts! Thank you for being so kind. I saw in one of your books that you're looking to swap Deco's? Me too! I'm not very good at them, but I still love to do them... Interested?
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart! I actually just realized that I don't have the time to swap decos anymore, so I'm actually looking to offload the few that I have. I could send you a couple if you want. PM me if you do!
Comment: fun package! Thanks for this. I might be a while to try it out. I dont have anyone worth using it with atm. lol :S
ps ty for wrapping it. My daughter didnt notice the red dot and opened the package. lol :S
Response: Glad you liked it! I figured since I was sending 2 swaps in the same envie I would wrap it just in case, and I'm glad I did! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks! It will be fun to try all of the different nail polishes and stuff! Everything was so nicely packaged, also, all the little presents were fun to open! Oh and those X-rated comics are crazy!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything! I knew you like nail polish, so I tried to send some fun colors. And I figured you might be able to re-use the envies. I'm glad you were ok with the x-rated comics, I figured you would be. Glad you liked it all, thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for all the ATC blanks.
I hope you have got the chocolate already or get it in the next days. Please write me a message if you don't get it during the next week. I will resend choclate if you don't have it till 03/24/12
Comment: Yay! I really enjoyed opening this swap! Thanks so much!!! Love the little book with the pockets full of goodies and loved all your little notes. Thanks for the extra Bible verses and the planner. You are very thoughtful. Hope you have a wonderful Spring!!!! ♥
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thanks for the fun bags. Btw you need to keep an eye out for your width on these. I had to pay the extra 20 cents handling because they were over 1/4 inch thick.
Response: I'm so sorry for that. I brought them to the post office for that specific reason. The lady there insisted they were all fine. There's a thread in the forums about this crap, different post offices deciding their own rules. I guess I will just probably add the extra from now on just to be safe. Again, I'm sorry about that.
Comment: Hi Ashley, I got your swap today! Thanks for the nice books, I can't wait to play with them. :) So if you want I'll send another swap your way (I have a lot of booklets right now), and when you receive it you will send me one. Regular swapping as it is. :)
Response: Thanks for the rating! And heart! I would love to continue swapping with you. I won't have any for a couple weeks though.
Comment: I havenÂ´t words right now....:-) Thank you sooo sooo SOOOO much for your wonderful journal! You put so much heart in it, itÂ´s such a joy to read and watch! and all the goodies you included..wow...thank you for one of the best swaps I got:-) <3
I would love to become penpals, we have so many things in common! What do you think..do you want a letter from Germany? ;-)
Response: So happy you liked everything. I would love a letter from Germany!

Thank you for your unique illustration using "B Zentangle Patterns." It was very clear which patterns you used and I appreciated you sharing in your note which patterns you used. I look forward to adding your illustration to my Zentangle a-z Series. Happy New Year!!!
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and heart! I've just started doing zentangles and I love them!
Comment: Received the books. I now have a better understanding of how they work. I can't wait to make some. I am interested in swapping when I get more of them :)
Response: Great! Its always good to have FB swappers! I also think I forgot to write a note saying that I usually fill out the first page with my likes and what I'm looking for when I make myself one. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I gave you a heart but I would give you my kidney and liver too! you read my profile and gave me too many goodies, you shouldn't have! you have anew baby and christmas coming up! loved everything, I am so making roasted brussel sprouts with pomegranite from the magazine.

Comment: Thanks so much for all the great sticker sheets :)
Response: If you had sent me a PM, I could have rectified this by sending you another sheet. UPDATE: sent some more sticker sheets 4-4-11. Sorry it took so long to resend, but we were in the middle of a move and life was crazy. Hope you receive and like them. Thank you so much for the5 and heart! I'm glad you liked them!
Comment: Wonderful cards and verses Ashley! I like the idea of having a bible verse app for the phone. I must also mention that I was impressed with the little business card you sent with your note on it. Looks like you had them made special for swapping with. What a fantastic idea ! I may have to borrow that idea if you are OK with that.
Response: So glad you liked them! By all means, go ahead and borrow away, haha. Vistaprint has them for free right now. That's where I got them
Comment: Hi Ashley! I recieved your ATC today...pretty! Just remember to use a small padded pouch the next time you send something so beautiful...some of the pearls came loose. But I fixed it so no worries!
Response: Sorry about that. I'm glad you liked it though!
Comment: Thanks for all the great stickers! I love the little rainbow! The envie was starting to get ripped on the bottom side so you might want to tape that side from now on. The PO is not know for being gentle with envies! =)
Response: Thanks for the tip! I'm glad u liked all of them! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Tatyana, Thank you for all the great fun crafts you created for each of the daycare kids...Aria carried hers around all day saying "princess!!!"

Response: Thank you so much!! U give me hope through all the rude and mean people!
Comment: Your letter had me glowing for days! It's such a sweet story. I'm so glad that you found someone good for both you AND your daughter. You sound so happy and that makes me happy for you. Thanks so much for the send.
Response: Thank you! I love sharing my story! Thnks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! Nothing to be envious about our weather - it's been in the high 20's all day and breezy. Supposed to snow 1-3" tomorrow - which sounds like nothing but here in Houston - it's a big deal because the cities just aren't prepared for snow or ice! stay warm! mimisfrog
Response: I saw on the news how dallas got hit with ice and snow!! I can't believe all the crazy weather! Thanks for the rAting!
Comment: You should have heard the oooohhh and the aaahhhss when Sara opened her envelope today. She loved both cards! And yes, we really like the idea of them becoming craft partners. Sounds great! It's so much fun to receive stuff from abroad :)
Response: I'm so glad. Tatyana had sooo much fun making them!
Comment: Thank you so much!! Your package of candy was amazing! There was candy I had never seen and candy I remember as a child, NOW there was one thing in there I WILL NOT be eating! LOL!! But that definitley fall under unusual!! Thanks again! I loved it!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I tried to get some candy in there that's not always seen and so main-stream!
Comment: Oh' my gosh - how could someone talk to you like that? What a total jerk! I could not work in collections - I always think most of us are a few paychecks away from having issues! I am so sorry to hear that someone would treat you that way! Glad you could vent and hopefully it helped! Happy Swapping and Happy New Years to you! ;)
Response: Thank you! its good to know im not the only one to think he was out of line! happy new year to you as well and be safe!
