Comment: Hi Georgene - I love your great raven GAA. Perfect elements and colors and love the bit of sparkle you added as well. And thank you so much for wonderful raven extras - I love them all! And the address labels are so cute - how thoughtful of you - thank you so much. I miss the scrapbook store we used to have because I loved going with my dear friend and spending a day crafting. All we have left now is JoAnne's and Michaels, which is not nearly the same. Thank you for a great swap!!
Response: It makes me happy that this swap made you happy as to what I sent. Poe is one of my favorite subjects! Enjoy the extras and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Georgene. Thank you so much for my awesome gifts! Seriously, you totally spoiled me. The box is decorated in such a pretty way—BIG smile. Love my handmade B-day card. Obsessed with the dragonfly and miniature Unicorn ornaments. Did you make the Gorgeous Angel ornament? The stickers and patches are just perfect Thank you for the address labels/stickers. ❤️ I love the punch. The Vintage Fairy book just blew me away. Thank you so very much for everything. I can clearly see that you made sure this would be very special for me. Thank you so much. Seriously, I appreciate this more than you will ever know. I am going through a rough patch right now and this just took me to a place of happy. I am a little overwhelmed, as you really put time and effort into making me feel so very special. Thank you again, and I hope you have a very wonderful birthday!
Response: It warms my heart that you liked everything I sent you. I really did carry the list of things you liked around with me for days so I could be reminded of what you liked. The only thing that was handmade was the card and of course the stickers. I'm so happy you like the antique book-found it at a used book store and thought it was such a wonderful book full of stories and the illustrations are unique! So glad to bring you some cheer and again Have a Wonderful Birthday-and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Georgene! Wow...this is such a lovely page; I can't wait to add it to my art journal! I'm especially fond of the way you used the sequins. You have such a knack with the sewing themes and thank you SO much for the wonderful images and vintage hooks/eyes to work with in my own creations. Also, your envelope was beautiful! All those ladies in their 50's dresses and snippets of pattern instructions. Sewing themes are really your forte!

Response: It was an different technique and I'm glad you created the swap. Always happy to add a new technique to my crafting arsenal! Glad you liked what I sent and thanks for the rating!
Comment: I like the cards you made very much but some of them are in the wrong suit. August - 8,7,6,5,4,3,2 of Spades & you gave me a 2 of clubs & a 3 of clubs. I do see where the swap had the list incorrect in one section, but if you read on you will see the suits listed for each month. I will just cut some spades from another deck and paste them over the clubs.
Response: Oh I'm sorry-if you tell me which ones I will make them for you to match the ones I sent. Glad you liked the ones I sent-thanks for the rating even though I goofed!

Comment: Good to see you in my mailbox, Georgene. Thanks for the fun card. The pattern ladies look like they're cheering the tightrope-walking clown! Yes, it's been a brutal summer, and no end in sight. But much of the planet is enduring even hotter temps, so I hate to complain...

These are really beautiful and I felt so lucky to get that extra decoupaged napkin/book page--those are the neatest bird images! And, of course, that sweet kitty napkin has a special place, too.

Comment: WOW, Georgene! Where do I even start? I guess on the outside of your lovely swap package with the delightful simplicity mail art. So fun and nostalgic. I appreciate you taking the time to wrap the different parts of your swap--it was like opening presents. The ATC envelopes you made are very pretty. Thank you for including such a nice variety of colors and patterns and textures in everything. I'm really going to enjoy using them. You really went above and beyond for this swap, and clearly put a lot of thought and care into it especially for me (those scrabble tiles!). Also, the timing was perfect as it arrived right before I'm starting on my first ever batch of jams. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap!♥
Response: Glad you liked everything I sent-it was fun to put together-even better when I can personalize it. Thanks for the rating!

I love swapping with you, my friend...just love it.
Response: Glad you didn't mind me sending the two swaps together and that you liked everything I sent. It's fun swapping with you-thanks for the rating!
Comment: So much adorableness...just so MUCH! Georgene, you are one in a million. The wee tags are simply darling...and I couldn't help noticing that one of the postage stamps you chose is of a MICHIGAN bridge!!! Thank you for the tags, for the beautiful paper napkins, and (mostly) for being the lovely person you are.
Response: I chose that stamp on purpose-I have my stamps by subject-went looking for Michigan stamp when they joined the USA and found this old uncancelled stamp-I was thrilled-I had several so didn't mind sharing one for you on the tag! Again glad you liked everything I sent and thanks for the rating and nice comments(blush-blush!)

Comment: It looks like you had a lot of fun at your retreat. I am way jealous. The two pockets came out lovely and the little saying you added look familiar. Are they from the Country Diary book?

Comment: What an elegant card! Thank you - I know it's not easy to cut up beautiful books, but it's a nice way to give books a new life and share them with others. (At least this is what I tell myself.) Stay cool and keep crafting - you really made my day with your beautiful card.

Response: So glad you liked everything I sent-it was a fun one to put together. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Just checking back thru my swaps. I can't believe I didn't rate you for this awesome swap. I loved it all beginning with the cover and I've used some of what you sent in some swaps since I received it.
Response: Oh-so happy you liked it. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: All are very pretty but you must of course know my heart went for the kitty, lol! Thanks so much for such a sweet swap. I ended up backing my embossed shapes as the embossing made the card stock fragile and prone to splitting.
Response: Glad you liked what I sent! Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Hi Georgene! You used such a cute image--fairies in love! Your sweet flocking fell off en route ;+( I had never seen it before. Thanks, too, for all the sweet extras and the cute fairy envelope!
Response: Guess I have to think of better way to attach flock-maybe with double sided tape rather than glue. Glad you liked what you did get anyway! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I love this Gelliprint ATC & it came in such a great envelope! We have no more local papercrafting/scrapbooking stores nearby any more. The only indie one is in Western MA & our local Michael's/ACMoore stores don't offer classes any more. There's one spring retreat offered for one weekend by a girl who used to manage a closed store, but that's it. Thank you for creating the gelliprint for me!
Response: Glad you liked my ATC-gelli prints are so addicting to make-each one coming out different. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a fun Halloween decoration! I showed it to my husband and he said, "Wow! That's kind of creepy!" Yes, yes it is and that's why I LOVE it. Thank you, Georgene, and thank you for the clown face and doll arms...also wonderfully creepy! xo
Response: Glad I didn't creep you out too much-glad to share my creepiness with you! Thanks for rating!
Comment: OMG, I adore every single thing about your mini pink PL. Where to start...the mailing envelope was so cute with cats everywhere. Eek! The kitty PL with the buttons, yarn, the little jumper that says "nope", its precious. You did such a good job, thank you so much! I am crazy about the pink kitty napkin, thanks for putting in an extra one. Rosettes are one of my all-time favorites, cute pink buttons and the ombre embroidery floss. Love it! The paper you wrote your note on is a favorite. Love the saying. Only cat people would get it😊 And thank you for the cuts of paper. See what I mean, I'm in love with it all. Your package was so cheerful and made me very happy! You were so thoughtful the way you put things together, thank you for everything!💖

You always seem to have the most beautiful lace and fabrics and a great big thank you for that amazing piece of linen (?) LOVE that little button card--you're so lucky to have found those; I always check for things like that but don't have much luck ;+( Thank you for a wonderful swap!
Response: So glad you were thrilled with the things I used to create ATC and the extras. You should see my stash of old linens and embroidered pieces-we are talking a couple tubs full! Great to swap with you again -thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the great cards! This whole project is my first foray into Atc's and I love the ones I have gotten so far! I love how all the cards are different but that you carried the orange jewels thru each one to tie them together! Very Creative!I am sorry you have been snowed out of your craft room...hopefully the damage isn't too bad and you can get back in! We are in the valley below the snow....but have a cabin and we have lots of snow this year, and my daughter was on ski team and our races kept getting bumped for record snow....70 inches in one 24 hour period! I heard that California has the most snow in the nation right now....I don't think people think of that when they hear California....I am in the northern Ca mountain area,,,,though I grew up in the central Ca beach area ;o)
Response: Glad you liked my cards. I'm afraid I will be out of my craft room until spring when we can get a new roof! But I carry on-I love the Halloween theme. Wow-California with snow-that is a mind blowing thought. Thanks for rating and thanks for the heart!

Response: I was a bit nervous about this one as it was a new experience but when all was said and done it was an enjoyable learning experience. glad you liked it and thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for the ATC, it arrived this morning in a lovely decorated envelope and with some extras, it is a shame the extra's came from another Artists Etsy shop as a print out (not cool) but ignoring that I love the ATC and its going along side my other winter cards. I hope the snow clears up where you are.
Response: I'm glad you liked what I sent. I even appreciate the scolding of where I got my image-I will be more careful in the future. Thanks for the rating.

Comment: Thank you for the adorable magpie journal. I too struggled with the small pages. Seems if
I "have " to do a small journal I of course think Big! And if I am doing a large journal small things sure come to mind! Go figure. I turned each page and thought Aww how cute, oh I like that page and a gave a little gasp when I found the little guy with a "shiner"! Love all the older papers you use, brings back memories of my childhood Christmases that were so fun.
I have had the same problem with Signatures growing out of the center too. Now I know why people put in three or four instead of one. 😊
Thanks again and MERRY CHRISTMAS🎄

Comment: Oh Georgene! Oh my! Not only is your ATC beautiful (and beautifully stitched!)...but the extras! Such gorgeous Victorian scrap images, and the little ornaments are to die for. This has been a tough year for me, and all of my Christmas ornaments, lights, and so forth are in storage in Portland. Last year, after Christmas, I bought a big (pretty) fake evergreen wreath, and this year I've loaded it with fairy lights, tiny ornaments, and all the Christmas swap items (ATCs, twinchies, even inchies) I've received since being in Michigan. It's adorable! And the beautiful Victorian children ornaments you shared with me will be front and center...you MADE my Christmas!
Response: Oh I'm so glad you liked the ATC and that my Victorian scraps went to a good home. I was getting too many of these in my storage box so decided to spread the cheer and reduce my stash. Thanks for the lovely comments and the rating! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year of Swapping!

Response: Glad you had gotten-and happy you liked it. I had created with you in mind and was worried it got lost! I feel better now and thanks for the rating and nice message!
Comment: Wow - thank you for everything! I love those snail mail stickers and the way you decorated the envelope itself.

Clouds are great too. Thank you ever so much for the darling squirrel address labels and stickers. Can’t wait to use them. Very sweet swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful envie of blue! Love the variety of papers, borders, stickers, tickets and vintage! The squirrels are amazing - I can't do that with my Cricut - and all in that metallic blue squirrel envelope! YOU ROCK!
Comment: Oh wow! This tag is so drop dead gorgeous! Love the purple! The cat's expression is classic, lol! All the details are so lovely! Thanks so much also for the crochet magazine also! I am part of a group that digitizes antique needlework books and patterns called the Antique Pattern Library. It offers free access to antique patterns that might well be lost otherwise. I will be making a scan of this and passing it along. You are wonderful!
Response: So glad you liked the tag. And I'm glad I was able to put my hands on the old needlework book and send it this time. I had purchased it awhile ago remembering it was someone I traded with that liked these kind of things. So it was YOU and I'm glad you and others will enjoy the content! So it was my pleasure to send it! Thanks for the rating!

Response: I think you mean the wrapper from the Dilly Bar from the Dairy Queen-we had them at the scrapbooking retreat I was at when I created the postcard. Fun fact-the Dilly bar originated at the Dairy Queen in Moorhead, Minnesota(the co-founder of that dairy queen passed away recently at the age of 91) which is just across the river from where I live in Fargo, North Dakota. The scrapbook store I go to all my retreats and card classes is in a mall in Moorhead! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous junk journal! I love how you made it so personal for me after reading my profile. I love all the microscope stuff and the Sheltie stickers are adorable.

Response: Oh-I'm so glad you like it-it's the kind and style I like to make. And after looking at so many pictures of shelties and their different colors-I opted for black and white! Thanks for the rating!

Comment: Georgene,the coins you sent to me are the most beautiful and elegant I treasure each of them,Thank you for all the thought and time you put into them.The extras you sent will also be put to good use.Thanks again.
Response: Glad you liked what I created for you. I've been in a few swaps now with the coin size and find them very exciting challenges! Thanks for rating!
Comment: I love this pocket letter! Especially the shaker pocket, how fun! I don't love anywhere near the ocean either, but I love the water so much. Thanks again, have fun in your card making classes!
Response: Glad you appreciate this pocket letter from one land locked friend to another. We made Halloween cards last Tues-witches whose legs wobbled back and forth-funny! Tomorrow night it's fun folds but I.m not sure how much fun it will be as I struggle with origami type things!!! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Georgene! OMG...but first things first: the tag is ah-mazing! I love the theme, and your details are so perfect...from the bingo card background to the beautiful girl and her faithful pup to the gorgeous turquoise and peach leaves, buttons, and trims! Not to mention, the clever tissue paper wadded behind the lady standing in the lake, so she could stand out (literally) from the background. And then we come to the extras...you have spoiled me, and I LOVE it! the napkins! The gorgeous ecru trim! Oh, and the peach and turquoise ribbons; it is ALL so special! Thank you so much, my sweet friend...you've more than made my day!
Response: I'm so happy that you liked everything I sent. Your comments are so very kind-I blush! Those are some of my favorite of many napkins I have and was more than happy to share. You made my day,too! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I loved the ATC and everything extra you sent. I salvage even the front and part of the back of the note card and one of the postage stamps. I loved the Coca-Cola envie and the Addy labels were the best. I'd like to buy some if you tell me where you got them. Many hearts to you my friend........=)
Response: Glad you liked what I sent. I printed the address labels on my computer-I buy the blank sheets of labels in bulk because I love to include them in my swap-bot swaps! I will send you some more and you don't have to buy them-it is my pleasure to do it! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I love the texture on this ATC! That’s very neat. And thank you also for the adorable address labels (I love them!) and the best Mr. Rogers stickers and quote (I love him!). It’s a happy mail day :)
Response: So glad I made a happy mail day for you. Mr. Rogers was a special guy! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks so much! Love the card and how you carried the theme onto the back...why haven't I ever thought of that? Truly appreciate the hippie envie! Yes, we do have much in common. Barnabas Collins! Ha Ha Ha. I'm a Johnny Depp fan too! Thanks for the stickers. Mr. Rogers rocks!
Response: Its always fun to sent to a swapper with similar (very similar) interests and backgrounds! The Mr Rogers stamps sold out so fast at my local post office-so I had to make my own stickers! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome zine! I love Jim Croce and that song is a favorite from High school. I love that you printed it on such nice paper. I never thought about using photo paper (it is photo paper, right?) What ever it was, it really made the colors pop! Leslie
Response: Glad you too like the song I picked for this zine. Actually the paper is Hammermill 28 lb 98 bright laser paper. I like the results too and it's a little heavier than regular copy paper. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh, this is just beautiful work! I love it so much!!!! And so much I thank you for the address labels. I was just wishing I had some, but as I'm moving in two months, I didn't want to go to the expense of purchasing any. This should last me just long enough, it's like you knew or something! Haha! Very wonderful, thanks so much. Peacocks have special meaning to me, as they are how we represent my dad who died 3 years ago, so this will be displayed with love in a frame in my home, wherever I go. Thanks so so so much. (And the envelope- wow)
Response: I appreciate the kind words and am honored that you think that much of it to display it. Glad to bring a happy memory! Happy to hear you could use the labels,too! Thanks for the rating-good luck on your move-hope all goes smoothly!
Comment: Hi Georgene! Well . . . as always, your work is beautiful! I'm in love with the sewing theme and all the bits and bobs you included in your creation. You have a real eye for collage work and using embellishments. I LOVE it and am going to try to find a way to use it on my purse! Thanks, too, for the great sewing book pages--I remember wearing outfits that looked just like those pictured in the book. I loved the 70's! Thanks for always being such a great partner.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC - it's so cute and I love the rose-tinted glasses and the textures. Thank you for the great vintage book pages, too - I think the large one is from some kind of religious commentary, and the small one looks like a history.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and for the birthday wishes. It means a lot to me :D
Also your dreams of a white Christmas do sound strange to me, lol. But I don't like the snow. In winter we get snow on the mountains where we live and it blows bone chilling winds down over Canberra. We get to 20F in winter. Sometimes it snows here, but I stay inside and think of the warm sandy beaches I grew up on. lol...
I hope you get your white Christmas. Have a lovely holiday season, Nat
Response: We did get snow this week so it feels more like the season to me. Glad you liked the card-thanks for rating and Happy Holidays to you!

Response: So glad you liked everything! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: It's an Animaniacs bookmark, Thank You very much for Dot! And the house on the card, except for the decorations, looks very much like one I drive by each week, everything is pretty much in the same place, it's like the cardmaker took a picture of this local house...it's awesome! Plus we should all have those postal lovin' stickers. Thank you!
Response: That is really cool that you have a locally situated house that looks like my card! What are the chances? I'm a huge Animaniacs fan-glad to meet another. Thanks for the rating and Happy Holidays!
Comment: AMAZING - 10 hearts anyone? I am actually not reading the list or opening the gifts because the men in his house don't shop for me for Christmas so nothing to open unless I wrap my own stuff - this is so fantastic! I lived in Mandan when I lived there and went to Bismarck State College.
Response: I lived in Mandan, too for a year after my husband graduated from law school and was law clerk for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. I liked it there-had a small town feel but then we moved to Fargo when his year appt was over. You are like me-I am not opening my 25 days of Christmas swaps I received until all on Christmas Day because it is just my husband and I! Hope you enjoy the gifts and have Happy Holidays! Thanks for the rating-nice to "meet" you!
Comment: I got my gifts!!! I wasn't sure what it was so I opened the box. My cat who practically tries to attach himself to my side daily was in my lap at the time I opened it. He saw the blue ribbon thingy and grabbed it and ran. He's claimed it as his. He growled at me when I tried to get it from him. He never growls over anything except when someone other then me tries to touch him. So I figured if he likes it that much he could have it. I took pictures of him playing with it on my bed. Anyway thank you for all the gifts. I so want to open them. lol But I'll be good and wait. Thank you again. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and an even better Christmas
Response: Glad I made your kitty happy-there are more goodies enclosed in that box for him-I'm surprised he didn't find the catnip toy too! I had alot of fun putting this together and hope you have even more opening them up! Merry Christmas to you too!
Comment: Thanks for your lovely trio of tags! Too pretty to use. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.
Response: We did have nice Thanksgiving-drove 2 and a half hours-didn't have to cook-wonderful meal and family friends-and didn't have to clean up afterwards! Glad you like the tags! Thanks for the rating and Merry Christmas!
Comment: Oh Goodness! You went above and beyond in your package. How wonderful the goodies are. I love the list paper, and the calendar (already have appts marked in it!) You are so generous, thanks you for making me smile and making me give my kitties some extra yummy food!
Response: So glad you liked it all-thanks for the rating and pat your kitties hello from me and mine!
Comment: Wow thank you for the mail - I am so blessed to have you as my swap partner! The APCs are gorgeous and I love the extra you have sent! Much thanks for such a lovely mail, you deserve 10 hearts for the effort â¤â¤â¤
Response: Oh-Thanks-glad you liked everything-was my pleasure to send you something! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: The title may be Joy but she does not seem to have seen much...So happy to swap with you again. Love, love love all!
Response: Glad you liked it all-thanks for the rating and the extra message to my inbox-that kind of work you are retiring from is very giving-I did similar work for 6 years-I know! It's rewarding too. You'll enjoy the extra time to craft-I know I do!
Comment: Georgene: Your vintage goldfish bowl ATC is wonderful! Did you use a goldfish bowl rubber stamp for this? If so, can you tell me who makes it - I love it! And love the vintage German paper in the background. Also, thank you so much for the butterfly stickers - where did you get those if you remember? They are so pretty and detailed and easy to apply, I'd love to find some! Cheers, Laurie
Response: The goldfish bowl was an image I got from the internet and printed it on a transparency and then colored the fish with an orange permanent marker! Got the butterfly stickers out of my "stash" and not sure how long I have had them. Glad you liked it all and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you, love the PC and your message made me smile! I don't know who the other postal worker is but I hope I get them in a swap one of these times, that would be fun. ðŸ˜Š Happy swapping! ðŸ–¤ ðŸŽƒ ðŸ–¤
Response: The other postal carrier woman's SwapBot name is MawBella and she lives in Missouri. It would be fun for you two to swap stories! Glad you liked my ghost lady and thanks for the rating. Keep up the good work in our mail system-I know I appreciate it!
Comment: Thank you for the pocket letter. What a great idea you had! Very thoughtful of you. So glad you enjoyed making it. I love having it in my collection. I appreciate the address labels, I always need those. You are a great partner, I hope you get my name again sometime. I'm going to a Halloween party at the Hard Rock Casino and I get to meet Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister, I can't wait! Happy Halloween!
Response: I had a lot of fun with that picking out the costumes and the music! Sounds like you have a fun Halloween planned! Thanks for the rating and Happy,Happy,Halloween!!!
Comment: Beautiful card, and thanks for the address labels! Did you enjoy your retreat?
Response: My retreat was great-thanks for asking. My usual buddies couldn't make it this time but made some new friends and got lots of swaps done. Glad you liked the ATC and thanks for the rating! Happy Halloween!
Comment: I was very delighted with my package! The Dotee was great! Thanks so much for the bits of extra too! I liked the tissue type paper you wrapped things in. I don't believe I've see this kind of paper before. Very nice! Thanks for joining and Happy Swapping!
Response: Glad you liked my snow lady! We are expecting some of that real cold stuff today-first snow of season! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hello Georgene,
Thank you for your nice selection of goodies you sent me for this swap. I am excited about all that you sent me. I will add the cards to my Playing Card Collection. I will be finding ways to use the rubber stamp prints you sent and the borders will be fun to use in a variety of ways. I hope we will get to swap in the future.
Response: Glad you liked everything I sent you-thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful pocket letter and all packaged in an adorable Winnie the Pooh envelope! I like how you decorated each pocket and the extras you included. My fav pocket is probably the cool New Yorker one with the lady having butterfly hair! This was sent to the wrong address though which meant it sat at my po box for 2 months before I could get it and rate you and that meant a hefty fee owing on it. Thank you for sending!
Response: Oh, I'm sorry. I had under the impression before that we could send to your Washington state address rather than the Canadian one-which I had done before! Sorry for the mixup I'm glad you liked what I sent and it wasn't too much of a fee to receive. Thanks for rating!
Comment: Oh my! What an amazing fall journal page! The moment I saw that darling squirrel I know I had a big smile on my face...he is so cute! I really love it! Thank you, and thank you also for the beautiful labels...can't wait to use them. This is
such a great swap! I enjoyed reading your letter!
Response: Glad you liked everything I sent! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Georgene, as usual you sent an ATC that is so special...so detailed...that I'm still finding details that I had missed the first 39 times I looked at it! I thought of you as I made my move to Michigan, and drove right through Fargo! We never got off the freeway, but I sent thoughts your way (did you psychically receive them, LOL?). Thank you for always being the very best swap partner!
Response: I wondered what that feeling was!!!! Glad you liked my green-hope you like your new home-will be pretty leaves color changing I bet! Thanks for the rating-Happy Fall!
Comment: Wow such a cool mini pocket letter! Thank you so much! I love the way you decorated the pockets in the front and back - really pretty colours and great sentiments, plus I loved the way you wrapped ribbon around one of the inserts. I loved the Halloween themed napkin. Love the goodies too, thank you very much!
Response: So glad you liked it all-was a fun swap-Thanks for your kind words and the rating!
Comment: These ads are amazing! Thank you so much for doing this private swap with me. I will have a blast collaging with these and am definitely adding some to my collection of tobacco items. It really is fun seeing all of the different styles over the years of the people in these ads! Love them :)
Response: I'm glad they arrived ok-the postal station in a grocery store that I mailed them at didn't have the large cardboard mailer that I intended to use so we had to make do with putting the smaller cardboard ones inside to give it stability. Thanks for the rating-enjoyed going thru all my old magazines(like visiting old friends) to find the ads for you!
Comment: Hi Georgene! I received your amazing art journal yesterday. Thank you so much. I love how you put it together and loved all of the black cars you included. My three year old really enjoys it too! All the colors and he noticed the Paw Patrol picture right away. Thank you again.
Response: Glad you both enjoyed it-it really was a labor of what I love to put together. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Georgene: If I could give you 10 stars I would! Your Halloween flip book is amazing! I can tell you have put a lot of thought and effort into it and it's filled with so many wonderful goodies! I've never done a larger flip book so will have to try that some time. Thank you so much and thank you for the extra goodies and the address labels - I love them! Happy Haunting! Laurie
Response: Glad it got to you OK and that you like everything I created and sent for you! Thank You for the kind words and the rating!
Comment: Sorry I rated you so late. I was remodeling my craft room and I received it when I was switching rooms around. Anywho, I cried when I opened it. The care you did to package it and the tag. I literally have no words for care and love that was put into that tag. It is by far my favorite thing I have ever gotten from swap bot, well besides my Pigglet themed pocket letter. :) I am still so emotional from the tag. It will be out on display with all my crafts and I am hanging it above my desk so I can admire it every time I go to my desk to create. Thank you so much you deserve 100,000 hearts and lots of hugs with tears.
Response: OH! Just so glad it didn't get lost in the shuffle-I know how it can get when organizing or reorganizing craft supplies. Thank you for your kind words-means a lot to me-Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Thank you for all of the goodies. I appreciate the fact that you read my profile. I really like the gnome paper and the sewing paper. Also, the address labels will definitely come in handy. I hope you have a blessed day.
Response: Glad you liked it all! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for this great ATC! I love the dimensional look with a ribbon coming up behind. It has a great spooky look and I love this image of Poe! I wonder if that's Annabel Lee coming for a visit? :)
Response: Glad you liked the ATC and thanks for the message. I will have to look into the Mrs. Poe book-sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a fun selection of adventure-themed items! I have visions of a future crafting session, maybe creating a bunch of fun greeting cards. Thank you! (Also, I LOVE the return-address labels, such a great idea!)
Response: Glad you liked everything-makes me happy when I pick out something useful! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I LOVE the beautiful box you made! I've seen those in the craft stores and always wanted one. The colors you used are so pretty. I'll probably use the coasters you enclosed to make tags - I enjoy making tags. Thank you so much!!! xo
Response: So glad you liked it and already have an idea for the coaster like pieces of tag board! I had bought a bag of buttons at Tuesday Morning that was those colors in different sizes and it inspired me! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh my! Thank you for the wonderful, and I mean wonderful, collage pieces, paper coffins (so cool!!!), and address labels. Can you believe that out of all of my years of swapping, you're the first to send me address labels. I cannot believe how happy this mail made me. Thanks again!
Response: Oh-So happy I made you happy. It was a fun swap to put together. I must not have ever had your name before because I am always sending address labels along with my swaps-glad I finally made some for you! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh my gosh!!! I was in desperate need of return address labels! You just saved the day. I absolutely love them and the peacock/robot papers! I appreciate you checking out my profile to see what I liked :) You rock! Heart's all around!
Response: Really glad I made your day! Thanks for the kind words and the rating!
Comment: You know I love cats!! I have only one tablet with cats and it says February. (Valentines, which I love, hard to find I guess) We had an awesome day for 99% eclipse here! Woke up to sunshine, unusual this time of year with fires and haze. Loved it, so epic! Thank you for the note and swap!
Response: Glad I sent you cats-I have so many-I mean list pads-only two cats! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Wow! You deserve an extra star. Thanks so much for the great labels. I was getting ready to make some when I got your envie. Good timing! Love the owl stickers! The washi was super. The sticky notes were great to. Thanks so much again.
Response: Glad you liked all the stuff and that I was timely with the stickers! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Well at least you can use your Halloween purchases for the next whimsy pocket! But seriously, even if you had sent a Halloween themed pocket for this swap, I would have loved it and not rated differently. You know how much I love that holiday.
But back to this swap. It's lovely. And I love that little pom pom trim at the bottom. And thanks for the address labels. Just when you think you're going to run out....
Response: Glad you liked the Christmas in July theme-I really should have sent Halloween. Thanks for rating!
Comment: So awesome!!! The address labels are very thoughtful and great but the obituary...thanks so much for going through the trouble to go back and find that for me; it is a fabulous addition to my collection. You're the best! ;-)
Response: You can thank my husband for that obituary-when I mentioned it he remember one-my hubby's name is Doug too so maybe that's why he remembered it! Glad you liked it all-thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the address labels and the ads! I love them! I would definitely be up for a private swap for more tobacco ads.
Response: Glad you like them-I would be glad to send you more in a private swap! Can you set it up because I'm afraid I don't know how! I will send you a cardboard(I think they are 9x12) priority envelope full of ads and you can do the same by just looking at my profile and sending me stuff you have that fits my likes! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: The envelope flip book that Georgene made is exquisite! Absolutely beautiful handiwork and filled to the brim with soo many goodies. She really put her artistic hand on this project and I am a grateful recipient.
Comment: Oh my gosh. Do you know me or what??? I love this stationary set. It's going to be hard to part with it. I feel so selfish! I want to keep it all to myself! But I will share. Love, love, love my stuff. Thank you!! You are an amazing friend and an amazing swap partner!!! Love you!!
Response: you are very welcome-love ya too! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: These are FANTASTIC! I love the way you interpreted the letters!
Good for you on getting through the whole alphabet. I started late, but had a lot of fun with it.
Now that summer is over (school started today - yipee!!!) I'm looking forward to getting back to my junk journal. They are a lot of fun to play in.
Thanks for the goodies too!
Comment: Hello! I got the swap you sent me today and I love everything! WOW!!!! I LOVE all the vintage ephemera!1 where do I begin? The wall paper and sheet music and vintage childrens book pages... OMG and the envie of fussy cut pieces... I can go on and on!!! I cannot wait to include all this goodness into my art junk journals...AND the pretty mailing labels! I wish I could give you more than 1 heart! Thank you for everything! =}
Response: I'm glad my happy mail was happy for you-that's always a very good thing! Glad you liked everything and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for an awesome swap. I always look so forward to swapping with you :):) You spoiled me , I LOVED the Coke Items, the fabrics were really great. I also so loved the coloring cards, did you draw those? I Loved the Labels too I already have them on sticky paper ready to mail!!I also LOve Betty Boop on the Coke memo papers, soooo cute!! You spoiled me rotten & I loved everything. I hope I get you as a swap so I can treat you next time. :):) Take care until we swap again. Hugs
Response: Oh-so glad you liked it all and no I didn't draw those coloring cards(I can color but only if it's stamped or draw first) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Georgene :-) . . . Thanks for making such a cute and fun postcard for this swap. Of course the family stranded on an island is all excited over Health Care. Many are now-a-days LOL. I'm just a bit older than you, I'll be 68 this year. Don't worry, 65 is the new 50 :-)
Response: I've been bombarded everyday by phone calls and "unhappy" mail to check into health care! Glad you appreciated the sarcasm of the postcard-thanks for the rating!
Comment: Yesterday, it was Christmas at my house! Thank you for the darling teal pencil case, with tons of extras!! You know me so well. I opened the package with Miss Ladybug so of course we played paper dolls!!! You are too good to me! Thank you so so much!
Response: It was so much fun to put together for my sweet friend! Glad you and Miss Ladybug had a grand time-thanks for the rating!
Comment: Well I finally made it to my po box and your box was simply AMAZING! One can not give enough hearts for your generousity and thoughtfulness in what you sent me :) Everything you sent was wrapped so nicely (even though the border guard of course had to rifle through everything :( ) and I could tell that you handpicked everything in the box with me in mind. I was sobtouched by that! If I absolutely had to pick my favs (so hard to do in this box!) it would have to be either the gorgeous Paris sticker or the Graphic 45 papers & chipboard pieces. Thank you again!
Response: Oh-so glad you loved it! Thanks for your kind words and the rating!
Comment: Thank you so very much for such a stunningly beautiful card. So many details, you did an absolutely brilliant job. Thank you as well for the metal trims, I have never seen these before and I can't wait to use them ðŸ’–ðŸ’–
Response: So glad you received it and like what I sent! I know the metal trims weren't exactly what you meant in your profile but so happy you can use them! I do have fun with the Gothic Arch ones! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome journal-I actually received it sometime last week, but the days just got so hectic. I apologize so much for the delayed rating. I loved the journal! I've been having fun filling mine with stuff as well! I love all the little goodies you used. Thank you again!
Response: Glad you liked it-It was so much fun and now that it's over-I miss it!
Enjoy it and thanks for the rating!
Comment: I love the card and the labels, I'm still learning, how did you get the hedgehog word to be raised like it was imbossed. I'm always eager to learn new techniques
Response: The hedgehog word was stamped with black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder-it's tricky embossing on vellum/parchment paper because it could scorch easily. You are welcome for the labels and thanks for the rating.
Comment: Many many hearts for your beautiful tag! Thank you for all the work you put into making this tag. I love it! I will display it for all our patriotic holidays. Thanks so much for the address labels too, how wonderful!
Response: Glad you liked it-gave me something patriotic to do on the 4th (and keep me out of the craft stores) Have a good rest of summer and thanks for the rating!
Comment: Georgene, I love when you are my partner! Thank you for the sweet animal cards! I love zoo cards and you must get to hear a lot of fun animal stories from your brother-in-law. Can't wait to use the Snail Mail stickers!
Response: Yes-I hear stories plus I get to go behind the scenes at the zoo and see things the general public doesn't see! Glad you liked all I sent-thanks for the rating!
Comment: You sent me happiness in an envelope :-) Thank you so much for the assortment of Mary E items..notecards, memo pads and even address labels. You spoiled me. Thank you so very much. Have a safe and happy 4th of July.
Response: Glad you liked everything-thanks for the rating!
Comment: My goodness, Georgine-- you've outdone yourself, and I didn't even think it was possible! Thank you thank you for the wonderful generous selection of terrific teal treats. â™¥ I am very excited to use all of the delightful scrapbooking stickers, lovely cardstock, and ATC backings in my pocket letters and some flipbooks I've been wanting to make. Pretty pretty office supplies and washi tape (rolls!), fun extras, and I've got to say I'm totally gobsmacked by the gorgeous notepads--so perfect for me! That typewriter pad is worth a swap and a half on its own, I like it so much! Thanks again for the time and care you put into this for me. I hope I get to return your generosity in one of these tealicious swaps down the road. :)
Response: Great-you liked it all and I got to reduce my stash! I've been working on paring down my craft room for the last 2 weeks. Got rid of my big table-that wasn't really a craft table and way to wide to reach across. I got a counter top piece and put it over 2 (4 drawer) dressers and I'm loving it so far. Now my crafting experience will be so less stress! Thanks again for hosting these swaps and thanks for the rating! Happy 4th!
Comment: Thank you so much for your swap I lived my stamp images their was like 3 dolls I didn't have that you stamped for me so I'm grateful for them I'm so addicted to them, if there is a theme you'd like me to do a swap for please let me know
Response: Glad you liked them-it was fun to get them out and "play" every now and then. It's hard to stop they are addicting! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: This was my first swap with the group so I was delighted to receive your beautiful ATC. It is just wonderful. Thanks for the stamps. And I love the note card and envelope. Sunflowers and birds -- two of my favorites. You are a great partner. Thanks from sweltering hot FL.
Response: Glad you liked the ATC I sent and the stamps I hope you can use. I thought of you when you mentioned sunflowers and I like that note card and envie set but I'm just about out! It's a cool 75 here today has been a cool summer for us so far! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for spoiling me so much! You are such a generous soul. I just adore the Halloween tags and will use them in all my Halloween swaps. It has also pushed me to get back in the crafting swing. All the extra tags are truly appreciated and I have already tea stained some. My postman was smiling from ear to ear when he handed me your package as he showed me the little postman on the back. What a wonderful way you made this one of the best swaps ever. Hugs and Hearts until we meet again, Mona
Response: Oh-so glad your mailman noticed my little sticker. When I go into post office to mail something-I always point it out to them and then they call their supervisor over and they both are happy! Glad you liked the tags I sent you and the extras are a good size to play with. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh my goodness! This book is the coolest thing ever - thank you sooooo much!!! I just love every page. I know this project was quite labor intensive (I've made a few altered books and they take time and work). I really appreciate that you made this wonderful gift for me, Georgene.. I will treasure it! xo Oh, and not to forget the 1956 trivia cards! My husband and I will have fun with those.
Response: Makes me happy that you like the birthday book I sent you! It was time consuming but I always learn a lot of facts and interesting things when I do them. Thank you for your kind words and thanks for the rating!
Comment: This is a incredible collage ATC. I adore how you made the cat from book pages. Even the envelope you sent this swap in is amazing. I wish I could give you a dozen hearts. Fantastic swap!! Thank you for the music pages for me to use.

Comment: I LOVE love LOve your postcard one would never tell you are new to this art ... I love the way you incorporated all the different medias ... My brain is not at that level yet in the mixed media field ... I think your card has inspired me to look at things differently THANK YOU ...
Response: Oh-it makes me happy that you liked my postcard! I watch so many You Tube videos that I think some of it just gets in my thoughts and I try it! Thanks for the kind words and the rating!
Comment: I absolutely love it! Thanks for the beautiful labels! We're adding a beautiful little kitty to our house tonight! ðŸ˜Š
Response: Thanks for liking my flag day ATC-my dear friend,Annielou is the one who hosted this swap and I'm happy it went so well as this was her first time as a host! I like to add labels to my swaps-it's something everybody can use. Thanks for the rating and welcome to the new fur baby in your family!
Comment: Wow!! Don't know where to start!! Thank you for such a generous swap! Love love everything! Especially the craft magazine and journal cards! Thank you so much! Let me know if you would ever like to do a private swap...â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸

Comment: Georgene, it's always such a pleasure receiving one of your swaps! I just adore your mermaid 'believe' card. The mermaids are lovely, the music overlay is beautiful, and the little sea creatures are the perfect touch! I also loved your packaging and that sweet kitty stamp on the back of the envie. Thank you for making this such a wonderful swap to receive.
Response: It's always a pleasure to send to you! Glad you were pleased with what I sent! Thanks for the nice comments and rating!
Comment: Oh how I love this atc! Sorry for the delay in rating. I have had a really emotionally crappy past few weeks, and receiving your swap was truly a bright spot! Thank you for being so thoughtful- I love the Audrey Atc! Oh and the wonderful graphic 45 goodies were extra delightful. Thank you so much - this is one of the reasons I love swapping so much!
Response: So glad I could lift your spirits! It makes my day,too! Happy you liked everything! Thanks for rating!
Comment: (stupid computer! wouldn't let me finish this last night!) I love, love, love this junk journal! So many creepy, spooky images!! And Little Red Ridinghood! I always thought her story was terrifying - probably why it's my favorite!! Love all the tea-stained papers! And the pull-outs! Please, please be my partner in all of the swaps from now on!!!Thank you so much!!
Response: So happy you liked my spookiness-It is more fun too when you know what your partner likes-I had an advantage there! Thanks for the nice comments and the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful pocket letter! I went to London when I was a teenager, living in Germany. We were only in London for a day or two. Now I have a new list of places to see in London! Thanks!
Response: There are so many things to see in London. I learned a lot about it just making the pocket letter. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the rating!
Comment: I am over the moon with my very first APC mini book. Thank you so much for the Mary Engelbreit themed book. You know how much I love her art~~~but not as much as i love you my friend. Thank you ðŸ˜Š
Response: Oh-I'm so glad it made it there ok-the guy at the post office was giving me crap about not just taking it to you but I said that was no fun and everybody likes to get mail! Glad you liked it-was fun to make! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Cutest little buttons ever!! Thanks so much for the addy labels too - I've been taping on old March-of-Dimes freebies! These are much classier! I envy you the rain - 104 here tomorrow- Happy swapping! ðŸ˜€
Response: Glad you liked the inchie and the address labels-was my pleasure! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I cannot imagine a lovelier atc than this one...loved everything about it...the sweet girl the "party frocks" the ruffle at top...how nice to have that butterick catalog! i'll bet it is fun to look through...thanks also for the return address labels...so thoughtful...thanks for all!
Response: Glad you liked the ATC-that catalog is really interesting to look at because the previous owner had pasted recipes and tips(from the 1930's) on top of some of the pages! Thanks for the rating and the Happy Anniversary wishes-you are very thoughtful to do so!
Comment: Your cards are super!!! I am glad you joined. Thanks for the sunflower ND post card. I loved reading your letter about your life. I miss Lilacs, they don't bloom here. I was so thrilled about the address labels you sent me.
Response: I love this series-thanks for hosting it! Glad you liked everything I sent! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Sorry it's taken me this long to rate for an AWESOME bundle of tealicious treats! Oh boy, am I cheesy today. Bear with me. ;)
Thank you so much for going above and beyond and creating and including some goodies especially for me (like the address labels and the lovely translucent flower stickers) and some extras, too. I laughed when I saw the loofah because I bought the same one to send in this group and hadn't brought myself to do it yet because I needed one and liked it so much! hehe... Now I can have it both ways! So many pretty things--gorgeous ink (I didn't have that shade!) and tags with eyelets, lovely notecards, all inspiring me to get crafty...and that pen with the hearts is going straight to my niece, who will just love it! The bag with the cameras is my absolute favorite and I'm using it to hold all my teal treasures I've been collecting for the group. Thank you!
Response: Great! I am so happy you liked everything! It was fun to put together because it is my favorite color and no matter where I go-my eye always picks out the teal things! Thanks for rating and hosting this swap!
Comment: Georgene: I love your doggie playing card! It's so stinkin' cute - the glittery crown is the perfect finishing touch! I'm jealous that you have a local scrapbooking store to go to - all that used to be around me have closed, leaving me with Michael's and AC Moore. Not the same at all! Thanks for the cute doggie papers too! Cheers, Laurie
Response: I went to a scrapbook retreat at my local grocery store this week-end-it was in the conference room and was sponsored by Creative Memories scrapbook supplies-we pay a fee for two days and we can buy their products but its not necessary! They hold those once a month thru out the year but in summer it is just a Saturday.! Glad you liked what I sent-thanks for the rating!
Comment: Wow! It is so good to be swapping with you again. The tag is fabulous!! I love the hummingbird. The labels are great, it is so nice of you to send them. I know sign language and read the card first! Cute! Have a great day!
Response: Glad you liked the tag and appreciated the card. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: What great envies!! I love that butterfly one, it so beautiful! And thank you for that darling pup dog paper and the address ladies! That's so awesome! Thank you for being a great swap partner!
Response: Glad you liked everything! My pleasure! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Wow I am speechless. This is one of the best BTC Or any swap I have ever received. It is gorgeous. So much work and thought has gone into this. It is a display piece for sure. Thankyou Georgene for the swap , the extra G45 and the postage. You have made my day xx
Response: So Glad! I like connecting thru Graphic 45 paper and its always fun to send to you! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable ATC. I love graphic 45 paper too. Thanks for all the extras also. Very thoughtful of you. You are lucky to have a scrapbook store that's been open 15 years. Tulsa is a big city and we only have one store and itâ€‹hasn't been open 15 years. We have hobby lobby, Michael's and Joann but just the one scrapbook store.
Response: So glad you liked everything! It's fun to connect thru Graphic 45 paper! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Georgene - Thanks so much for the amazing 1960's Mail Art. I love, love, love all the ladies!! All the goodies are wonderful and how pretty is that lace that you sent me?! I can't wait to use it. Thank you for making it such a special swap as usual. Take Care -Vanne
Response: I got the one from you today,too! Glad you liked everything-I had gotten a whole spool of that lace-so if you ever need any more...

Comment: What a wonderful swap, you my friend, are so very thoughtful and generous. Your package was full of goodies, I felt like I was receiving a huge RAK. I save all of my Somerset magazines forever but do not have the one you sent. And address labels, love them. And a new stamp set- wow! And then the swap itself, a beautiful tag that must have taken a long time to make. Thank you for your kindness. You are an amazing swapper, Wish I could give you a dozen hearts.
Response: So glad you liked everything I sent and that I didn't duplicate on anything you already had! It was my pleasure to pass them on to you! I struggle with those tags at first and then when I get going-I don't know when to stop adding stuff especially if I am at my sewing machine. Thanks for your kind words and the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely ATC ! I love the sign language card, too, of course! Did I mention I used to be an interpreter?ðŸ˜

Comment: WOW .........You blew me away with this packaging (LOVE) how you used the Chihuahua theme to package my Tag. I already had a big smile on my face from West to East. Then as I opened your package I couldn't believe the BEAUTIFUL Julie Doll you did. By then my mouth was WIDE opened......... You do such beautiful work you should start again doing the Julie Tags. I can't believe it's been a while for you. Don't stop this tag was .................STUNNING!!!!! You are a perfect person to swap with as you put GREAT thought into making your Tags. I am looking forward to swapping with you in the future.
P.S. I usually take pics of all my received swaps............so of course I did that with yours PLUS.................had to take pics of the Outside packaging also.............it was done with such thought (of my profile)! IF I could give you TEN hearts I would.
Response: You made my day by all the kind comments. It makes me feel good to have done something for someone else that was appreciated! You are so welcome! Since I am now retired-Swap-Bot is my "job" and I love it! I get to see other people's world by reading their profiles and swapping with them! Thanks for the rating and again for sharing your comments with me! There are so many adorable pictures of Chihuahua's on the web but I knew the one with the bonnet had to go with this swap!

Comment: This is a delight - just my colours and I love florals...thank you and also for the goodies and the note you sent with it. It was harder to do than a whole flip=book, it will be interesting to see how it all comes together at the end.
Response: Glad you liked my contribution to this "soon to be" flip book! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: WHat a sweet page! I am excited to put my book together, too! Its gonna be one "crazy but cool" flipbook, I think lol. I agree it was such a challenge to do just one page, but that was part of the fun too, i think.
Response: It was a challenge but I think that is a good thing every now and then-its going to be fun getting the other pages. Glad you liked mine and thanks for the rating!

Response: Glad you liked my unending creation! I did have fun creating it and now have more for other swaps! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hello Georgene,
Thank you for your very well thought out ATC you sent me. I love the background and wonder how you did it. I also like the oval that is clear and then the book page oval. The girl is very cute and I can tell you did some embossing. This ATC will be a GREAT addition to my ATC Collection.
Response: The background is just wonderfully detailed scrapbook paper. The oval and the print I cut for middle of the oval came from print-outs from digital downloads of Empherma's Vintage Garden -she has some beautiful print-outs-some free-some you have to purchase. The girl is from the Gorjuss Girls collection of rubber stamps. Glad you liked it all-thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you very much for the "Sweetheart" ATC. I Love it!!! Did you use a gorjuss girl? I just bought a few the other day and can't wait to start playing with them!! Thank you too for the return labels. They will definitely be put to good use:)
Response: It is a Gorjuss girl! I really love to use them-I have a lot of them! Did you know there is a group called Gorjuss Girls on Swap-Bot? Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hello Georgene! Thanks for the really cool postcard. I love it. I love those vintage patterns and drawn models. Those floral patterns are making a return. Our weather is kind of gloomy too but we had a mild winter so I'm not complaining! XOXO

Thanks again for always being a great partner & for a spectacular swap :)
Response: Oh-I'm glad you both liked your surprises! Thanks for the kind words and the rating!
Comment: Beautiful work, Georgene, I love them! And thanks so much for the address labels. The Coen Brothers said they named it "Fargo" because they didnb't think anyone would come to a movie named "Brainerd".
Response: Glad you liked them! Funny-I hadn't know that about the movie name! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Oh, my, Georgene!! This was an awesome TIAZ!!! I love how you combined all my favorite colors. The pens are really nice, I haven't seen them before. The tape, clippies (needed them), the papers you chose are wonderful, and new ATC backs!!! Thank you ever so much! â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤
Response: Glad you liked it all-it was fun to put together! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: A very cute and well put together ATC! I am not normally one for these type characters but you really sold it with your coloring and design! So neatly tied together, you are clearly experienced with layers and paper techniques; love it! Thank you for making and sending it. n.n Also, what fun wrapping paper! Thank you for that, too. :)
Response: Happy you are happy with my little
"sweetheart". I do enjoy that kind of technique more on my ATC's. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: WHat a super fun kit you sent me, I love everything about it. I have never seen those papers before! Thank you so much for everything. Smudge and Rascal thank you for their toys. They are going NUTZO over them. First they're "killing" the toys, then the next moment they are kissing and licking them. Thank you so much!!! My sons are as entertained with watching the cats and their toys as the cats are paying with them!!
Response: Glad you liked the kit and am even happier that your cats loved their catnip toys. It is fun for everyone when the cats are being playful! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Georgene thank you so very much I absolutely LOVE my junk journal! You have inspired me so much with your work :) I also love how adorably you packaged it-so nice. Thank you again!
Response: I'm becoming rather "addicted" to making junk journals! Each one turns out different and I learn a new technique or have a new type of "junk" to put in them! Glad you are happy with yours! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the sweet blushing boy postcard, Georgene. & thanks too for the bonus envie which arrived today as well. I enjoyed the article about the charming little British circus & will share it with one of my circus buddies who now lives in Alaska. The Lady is really getting around!

Comment: I go to scrapbook retreats to make swaps too! Thank you for the great ATC & swap!
Response: I'm glad I'm not alone doing swaps at retreats-always have to explain to somebody what I'm doing-but on the plus side I got one lady to join Swap-bot! Because it looked like so much fun-and it is! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: LOVE the tea cups!!! I think I am set with inspiration for awhile:) Also, I found stamping larger stamps on a splat mat gave me clearer impressions in the centers. Keep warm-spring is coming!
Response: Glad you liked the images I sent. It is challenging to get a good image on the bigger stamps. I watched a Yout Tube today that recommended using Versafine ink for detailed stamps and may give that a try too! Thanks for the rating-happy coloring!
Comment: Georgene, there is so much "YOU" in this skinny that it's like you came along for the ride! I love your vintage images (thank you so much for sharing some with me!), and you used them to great effect with this skinny. By the way, have you ever noticed the intoxicating smell of old catalog pages? Not kidding...there's something (ink? the kind of paper they used?) that has a particular "catalog" smell that I found delightful as a child, and that I find delightful today!
Response: Oh good-it's not just me that likes that old smell and find it rather nostalgic! Glad you like my skinny and always glad to share. Thanks for the nice comments and the rating!
Comment: Hi Georgene - Thanks so much for the gorgeous Alice in Wonderland envelope. It came out amazing!! I am super jealous of your Playing Card stencil, what a great element. I love all of the Wonderland goodies as well. Take Care -Vanne
Response: It was fun to send to you again as it had been awhile! Glad you were pleased with my creativity! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I LOVE Nightmare Before Christmas too! Fun postcard! No worries about the glitter, it looked more like embossing powder and not a single grain of glitter has come off the postcard so I will totally survive lol.
Response: Whew! Glitter crisis averted! Glad you liked it! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Georgene, when you're my sending partner I know I'm in for a treat! I LOVE your sweet little 'one-eyed' girl and your take on Mary Poppins--how clever to use the tip of her umbrella as the tip of the gothic arch! You're so lucky to have a subscription to Shutterstock--I love their images. Thank you for the cute little extras with the sweet girl.

Comment: Oh, Georgene!!! The ATC is delightful...it's so YOU! And the sweater holding the ATC is...honestly, I've never seen anything like it before, and I'm enthralled. It is ADORABLE!!! Pretty sure it's a die cut, and a beautifully embellished one at that...you hit a home run with this, for sure! I wish I could give you 100 hearts!

Comment: Thank you,Georgene. Haven't seen a Piggly Wiggly store in ages. The name always made me giggle! Yeah, RB&BB bites the dust. That was the circus I traveled with, but I've always preferred the smaller European-style shows. Love that little guy peering out of the meat case in your card!
Response: Glad you liked it-I always like to add lots of odd little details! Thanks for rating!
Comment: What a glorious surprise! I loved you Wacky Holiday ATCs I didn't select any of the same holidays in my swap so it's been really fun to make and collect these little beauties! I'm sad that the coordinator won't be doing this series again this year. Your envelope was awesome with all the mermaid stickers too, I'll be recycling the images and using them in some of my projects.

Comment: I wanted to tell you that this is a truly wonderful journal. I had so much fun going through all the pages and I have no intention of pulling it apart and using the cover for anything else. I read through the journal several times and you did a fantastic job with the tea/coffee staining and I love all the different papers that you used for your journal pages. My son loved the children's pages you used for the gingerbread man book. It was a big hit with my WHOLE family :) I plan on keeping it intact as is and on my Journal Shelf so I can look back through it from time to time. Thank you so much!!
Response: I am astonished but very pleased that you (and others) enjoyed my Dec journal. I am continuing on and am doing a Jan journal although my days are not as busy so far as last month. Thank you for your kind comments and the rating! Happy New Year to you and your family.

Thanks so much for brightening my day, and happy holidays to you and your family! <3

Comment: Thank you.

In the future it is ok if ou send to me in envelope just to be save . please visit my flikcr for your card. Thanks

Comment: Thanks for the great card! I've often thought of attending some of those scrapbook events, but I'm always worried that I'll start to work on something and finally find a use for that *one* special thing I've been saving for years...but I leave it at home. I'd be insane to try to pack my entire craft room, lol!

Comment: Beautiful swap, starting with your envelope, and including the great ATC and the Valentine pocket full of washi tapes and your sweet note. I'm sorry you needed hip replacement. Therapy is helpful. Last June I fell and broke my hip, And I spent 4 days in the hospital and 2 -1/2 weeks in rehab. I also went for 4 weeks of therapy after I was home awhile. In July, I fell again and broke my nose. Thankfully, I had no. more hip damage.
Just be careful, Georgene...and hope you'll fully reco ered very soon.
Response: Glad you liked everything I sent. Thanks for the words of encouragement-something is not quite right in my hip even though I am doing therapy-it's stiff and hurt still so am going to dr. again! Glad you are doing better-you need to be careful too! Take care and thanks for rating!
Comment: Amazing swap! I love what you made me, and the attention to detail, so lovely! thanks so much for the extras too! I love love love the altered paperclips! I know Mesa very well, I used to own a home there for 10 yrs... yes the weather is beautiful right now! But I grew up in Illinois and Colorado so I remember the white fluffy snow with the sun shining.. so beautiful! I hope the Phys Therapy is going well for the hip replacement! Get well soon, and happy to have you as my swap partner! :)
Response: Glad you liked what I sent you. Thanks for the rating! Unfortunately, something is not quite right with my hip and even has the physical therapist baffled so I am going back to surgeon! Wish me luck!
Comment: Wow! What an incredible pocket letter. Everything about it is so beautiful. I love all the fun goodies in the back pockets and the letter about your day. Thank you so much! All the best to you. Stay strong!
Response: Glad you liked what I sent-it was and is so much fun to make pocket letters and pare down my extra little stuff! Thanks for the rating!

Comment: I LOVE the tiny journal you sent! There is soooo much to look at and it's just my style! Love the ribbon you sent and that little envie with my name. :) Glad you're recovering well. I had a double knee replacement in 2009 and I wasn't to keen on my new knees at first either. But now I'm so glad I had the surgery. I can keep up with my son now. lol Take care, many hearts, and thanks so much for the wonderful swap! :)
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you liked the wee journal. And I'm encouraged that I will eventually be able to walk again normally and "they" say better than ever! I'm not there yet! Thanks for rating!
Comment: Hi Georgene :-) . . . .
Thank you for sending me a great postcart made from Letter T images. You're right, I do remember Tom Terrific cartoons. They were on the Captain Kangaroo show which I watched frequently. On your card I see a turquoise background, an image of Texas, a ticket, a tiger, Tom Terrific, a kitty wearing a tuxedo, a picture of an ancient telephone of sorts, the sweet dachshund Princess Tiffany wearing a tiara, a Thank You Very Much patch, and a an image of a lady with her hands cupped near her mouth like she is saying something loudly, but I don't know her name. What is it?
Response: You were really good at picking out all the T's. The lady is just random -a Victorian lady in a swimsuit of the day! Thanks for the comments and the rating-Happy Valentine Day!
Comment: Hi Georgene! Please forgive the late rating. I LOVE this ATC . . . the photograph is very much as you described it and the lace around the arch sets it off beautifully. Always a pleasure to receive a swap from you!
Comment: So adorable! I want those 2016 glasses! Georgene, thank you so much for the spectacular extras; I'm still drooling! I am sorry your hip is still problematic...oh, PT surely IS torture, but all for the greater good. My knee is (mostly) like it was before I ever had knee pain; it was a horrible, brutal surgery, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I agree that PT should be started quite early in the process...I was almost 3 weeks post-surgery when I started, which was very late. Maybe that's why it hurt so much...but I am VERY pleased with the result. Getting older is no picnic, I'll tell you.
Response: Thanks for rating! Glad you are doing well!
Comment: Georgene....Thank you so much for the BTC - very nice! I also love the ribbons you sent - can't wait to use them in a project....I'm making a quilt for my little dog and I'm going to use the dog footprints ribbon you sent me somewhere on the quilt.... Many hearts to you Georgene.....:-)
Response: Glad you like it and can find a fun use for the ribbons-thanks for the rating
Comment: Wow, this was a surprise. Thank you so much. I wish I had thought of sending rolls instead of samples. I kinda need to pare back too. I really like the pink roll that you sent. Have a great day.
Response: Another reason I sent whole rolls is that I have trouble neatly wrapping tape around a card-I even had a partner berate me once a while back for sloppy wrapping that she couldn't even use the tape! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: I love that you sent me the pinup! She will go into the adult section of my collection! =) Thanks a ton! I hope that you are healing well! =)
Response: Glad you liked what I sent-adult section-HMMM! Physical therapy is helping my healing along but now I've got an awful toothache that I am having my dentist look at today-it's always something!
Comment: Got your cards-a-plenty....very nice and well done. Really enjoying it and the pretty cards! Thank you! I thought this one was kind of a challenge--to redecorate an already decorated card, but it was fun. I am thankful for such a great exchange. I hope we do something again sometime!
Response: Glad you liked it-I had got such wonderful Christmas cards from swap-bot people this year. It made exchanging even more meaningful-till next time!
Comment: This is a beautiful book of art, full of themes I love, cats, zebras, sunflowers and sewing. You sure put a great deal of effort all the way around, even with your zebra address label. I wish I could give you 5 hearts, thanks so much for going above and beyond.
Response: Oh-I am glad you liked what I personalized for you! Thanks for the rating
Comment: I found your beautiful card in a stack of unopened swaps. So so sorry to rate so late! I adore this card and all of the washi tape. I hope your surgery went well and you are healing beautifully. Thank you so so mich :-)
Response: Glad you found it and liked it. Thanks for the rating. I'm going out today-the first time since I came home from the hospital on Dec 10th. Surgery went well and slowly getting back to normal.
