Comment: Thanks so much for the plethora of postcards! The work that you did on them is just gorgeous. However, the swap description asked for the swap to be sent in a decorated envelope. It was not, so I'm sorry but I cannot give you a heart.
Response: My sis has been in icu so I guess I'm a little spun and missed that. No worries,i really appreciate the five. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for all the vintage-y paper items!! I'm definitely interested in hearing more about the mod podge/newspaper/napkin project, and I look forward to seeing what I can do with everything else! I LOVE the cutouts on the envelope you mailed in, too! Thanks for a great swap! :-)
Response: You are welcome! I'm up for it any time. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I love your postcard, especially where it's torn with a little bit of the text peeking out from underneath. Your art rocks too! Thanks for your kind words. Living in a small town means a half an hour trip to the nearest Michael's and AC Moore...it's not all that it's cracked up to be. In your town, you have access to the world and other people's art probably within walking distance of your front door! Never mind the polar vortex Maine has been mercilessly sucked into this winter!
Response: YAY! It means a lot coming from you! Thank u so much for the heart!
Comment: Holy Crap! I thought I had all the crap possible till I opened your package! Thank you for the cool fabs too...love the chicken print! As for all the mini crap... Wowsers! Omg...those little cat cutouts in the tiny black envie.... I'll be looking over each and every piece a few times tonight and just sit here in LaLaLand. Thank you for reading my profile and sending stuff I love...you really outdid yourself!
Response: I'm so glad u r in crapatopia! Thank u for signing up and for the heart!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great postcard! I LOVE the transfers, and the birds nest makes me very happy. I can't believe that this was pre-made before you decided to send it to me, since it seems like every single element is literally right off of my profile. Amazing how things work out, isn't it! Looking forward to seeing you in the mail in the future!
Response: Oh wow! Serendipity !! Thank you so much for the heart!
Comment: WOW WOW! What a wonderful package to get on "Black Friday"! I love your masterboard- in fact I love BOTH of them! And the extras are just out of the world with greatness. Stuff I like and will be very happy to use in my projects-Thanks for being a great partner and sharing with me!!!

Comment: Hay ya gurlfriend....loved the note and your work...this is my first pass and paste...and you can rant anyTime...liked uR profile too; Im gonna friend ya so I can keep track of you and send ya some extra mail love as time allows if ya want. Holy cow here comes the holiday pounds....my mother in law bought 4 pies today...yikes...Im sad, Im happy, Im confused:(:) LMAO oxo, KiT
Response: Cool! can't wait!! And thank you for the compliment and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful selection of 'junk.' I especially like all the vintage pieces you sent-and it coordinates with the outside packaging! I am curious as to what those milk things are-caps? I've never seen them before.
Comment: I love this. Airmail and the old red, white and blue are my favs. The stamps on the envie are fantastic. I could not find airmail envies anywhere around here! All the enclosed items have already found a home for my next project. Love all the stamps and stickers inside. Now I know how people share washi tape. Love it all as always. Your one talented lady! Hugs, Mona
Response: I was so stoked to see u were my partner! Love u, thanks for the <3!!
Comment: Hey Kerri, I could never get tired of your envies :) I love them! That's a shame that they no longer teach cursive in school. I didn't realize that. I actually liked learning it in 2nd grade, along with sign language. Doubt they do that too lol.
Response: Ah, thank you! Please continue with these your awesome swaps! Thanks for the heart, too!
Comment: REALLY beautiful envelope! Thank you so much! And too funny - I do work corporate but not in R&D though I always have my eye on that department. ;) Thank you SO MUCH for all the lovely goodies, especially the aerograms! It was like magic opening your letter. :)
Response: You are so welcome. I think these swaps are so fun! Thank u for the heart! Yeah marketing would be fun, too, but I'd love to mark up the raw photos for retouching--dream job!
Comment: You have totally made my week ! First of all your card made me laugh out loud! And then what an AWESOME package! So many things in there I love. I think my favorite is the Ohio Grease ad ! People like you make SB fun. Thank you Kerri.
Response: Oh I'm so happy! Love u G! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I really like what you did for your section on this! And thanks so much for the fun extras. I'll keep an eye out for the next round so I can keep this one going! Oh, and yep, I know all about cursive no longer being taught. My 13 year old son was only taught a little bit, not even the entire alphabet (seems pointless to teach just a few letters) and it wasn't considered very important for him to learn it. They don't teach it at all in our county anymore. :(
Response: I think it's a great shame that they don't. I'm glad u liked everything;nice to get u for a partner again! Thanks for the heart! Xoxoxoxoxo
Comment: Thank you for starting this great pass and paste postcard! The images you sent along with it are wonderfully vibrant, and I can't wait to use them in a collage. You made today a very good mail day!
Response: Yay! I am so glad!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I LOVE the postcard (and totally wouldn't have rated you down, btw, but happy you sent an envie anyhow -bonus! Ha ha) and the postage stamps are fantastic! (I gotta get my hands on some old unused ones, myself) so cool you work in advertising.
I'll totally check out your SOHC when I get a minute -Take Care! :D
Response: I'm glad my brain fart had a happy ending. Please do! Thank u for the <3!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome "crap"! I especially love the bags, glitter, and bows. :) And I can always use tags creepy or not! Hearts to you and thanks for hosting this swap with the great name. lol
Response: Oh I'm so glad! Thanks for playing and for the heart!!!
Comment: An envelope full of the neatest stuff! I loved it all, particularly the circles and the handmade and painted paper. Your letter was so interesting. I went to Hawaii years ago, and still have amazing images in my mind from that trip. New Mexico has certainly enchanted me. I am so happy to be getting to know it. Speaking of bubbles, I am going to send you a "recipe" for making wonderful things from bubbles. It'll probably be several days before I get it out. Thanks so much for a very special swap!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! Can't wait for the recipe and that I for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for this wonderful surprise! From the decorated envie and the great artwork to the much appreciated French and Spanish note, every bit of it made me smile! I hope you had a fabulous vacation!

Response: Crap on sister! Thank you for the heart!!!
Comment: Thank you so much Kerri! Your whole package was great but I am totally excited about this Disneyland poster. I've been going to Disneyland as long as I can remember and go more now that I'm an adult. At least once a month. And this map is from 1999! It's so weird to see how it has changed.
Response: Betsy, I've been hoarding that map, but knew it was for u! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Oolala!!!! My kitty/whale envelope was a wonderful surprise waiting in my mailbox today! So amazing! You got so many 'hits'--a cat, a whale, a pink envie--amazing! And....(drumroll please) the contents were also truly amazing! All those neat vintage mailers (aerogrammes?) and that delightfully tiny little book, "Wise Cracks." I am obsessed with tiny things! Fun from start to finish! Thank you for suggesting this private swap and for making it so much fun for me! I loved reading your note, too. The Pacific Ocean in your friend's backyard? Wow...
Response: I'm so glad it got there! I was worried for the whale;-). Thank u for the heart!

Response: I figured I'd make the stitching as if it were ME doing real stitching
.;-) read all messed up! THanks for the heart
Comment: Love the ATC you did for this swap and the other one is creepingly good too-its like you can almost see a woman standing off in the edge! Thanks for the extra book page too-it is fun to have extra writing on a page from a previous owner unknown! And also especially like the card with the peacock on the settee-may have to use that in an ATC-thanks for sharing and swapping.

Comment: awesome folder, Kerri. for the gal who's a little quirky...

Comment: Thank you, Kerri, I love the little light bulbs, charms, inchie kit and all the other crap! The Paso Robles Map made me laugh about a time many years ago I was driving to Monterey from SF and got so caught up in my music, I passed the exit and ended up in.......Paso Robles! = )

Comment: Love the atc, Kerri, and elephant dung - my fave! (I may or may not have a notebook of e.d. origin in my possession.) Love the extra papers - I wish there were still steamshovels (so much more personality than excavators). Thanks! Kathy
Response: You are welcome my friend! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I received the package today. Wow. It was heavy and chock full of stuff. I think that little piece of translucent fabric is my favorite. I also like those paper sample booklets.

I hope that you like it!

Take care!! <3

Comment: Thank you for stuffed envie with all sorts of fun things! Most of it will be used, some shared with others and I found only couple smallish things I can't use at all. But, all in all, this was an awesome package and I had lots of fun sorting it through! :D
Comment: Love the t/f ATC. I had no idea about the paper towel. LOVE the deco's on the envie, too! Am cutting them out to reuse!,, well, maybe as I always save envies and notes from swaps. Where did you get the HOT comic girl character and the butler??? Too cool. TY!

Comment: Great ATC! I also chose that lady to be on one of mine as well. I like the texture created by the modge podge on the surface and the twine adds a really nice tactile element too.

Response: Thank u! I'll let u know when they r up on Flickr,
Comment: Thanks for the great rolo! I suspect the place you adopted from was Bat World in Mineral Wells, Texas. Or it could be BCI (Bat Conservation International) in Austin. Both are good organizations. I've adopted from both in the past and am a member of both.
Comment: Hey Miss Corbeau, don't tell me what to do, you're not the boss of me! I'm keepen the envie! I think it's cool! Besides, it wasn't about the envie.The envie was a bonus, and I'm keepen my bonus. So there!

Comment: I got your american silly season envie today in post. It is sooo cooool. I just so love what you did on my envie especially the little dog in the corner, it is so cute and I dooooo love the goodies you put inside. I will certainly find a good use for the kawaii stickers.

Response: You are so sweet! Thank you and Happy New Year!
Comment: VVVRRROOOOOOMMM!!!!!! Thank you so much for the awesome Luxury car. It has so many unique and beautiful extras on it. My son was really impressed too. You really did an awesome job in selecting what was perfect for me. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hey Kerri. I was checking to see why I hadn't rated you (on my excel swap spreadsheet) and... I have the rolo you sent, with the cute girl in the martini glass. I love it and I distinctly remember typing out a comment for your rating. I must not have saved it before, so I apologize! Thank you for the great rolo!!!
Comment: I *love* the recipe! Thank you so much, I can't wait to try it :D And I had to laugh when I read your letter. I actually love grunge style, but I don't collect ATC's or PC's but I love recipe cards, so I think it looks great in my recipe card box :D
Comment: Hi Kerri! Nice to swap with you again. I am struggling with this swap too...thought it would be a no brainer. I like what you did with it though. I especially like the witch in the martini glass!
Comment: The mail came today! Postlady brought it to my door because she couldn't stuff it into my mailbox! What a glorious load of crap!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I started opening it and it's an incredible maze of packages inside envelopes inside more envies and colors and beautiful odd tags and scraps of art (I love the postcard! (that f-ing see you next tuesday!)) and string and cute little notes and ads and textures and projects in progress!! It's all so inspiring! My brain started to overload and I had to take a break, I still have half the package to go! Oh So Fun! You truly are a member of my tribe. Confess! You didn't just obtain this stuff in a few hours, you've been squirreling it away. I know collected crap when I see it! How did you ever part with it?! A BIG heartfelt THANK YOU to you my dear!
Response: welllll, my little Trisket, I actually DO have magical powers to just whip that crap outta pleine aire. Wait until you see the stuff I hoarded away 2 centuries ago!
Comment: Holy. Mother-loving. CRAP. KERRI!!! This package is so epic, it warrants multiple exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My word, girl. My boyfriend brought it in from the mailbox and we both sat here saying "holy shit" back and forth as we went through everything. Some of this packaging and stuff is going right up on the wall as art! Wow. THANK YOU!
Response: Oh thank god I thought you'd hate it.will send more!
Comment: Daaaang! I'm going to have to step up my game. What a rad package of vintage shtuff! Loved the little tin trays, the Kismet game, the books, the playing cards, ephemera, etc. I'll try to get that slip mended and give it a go. Very cute. Thanks, girl! Your package will soon be on its way. Word up.
Comment: Oh' how fun! I loved opening all of the good stuff! Those trays are so cute! I love the paper goods and will put them to use right away on a project I am working on. The flower pin is great! Thank
you so much for the lovely swap!
Comment: Thanks for the cool vintage "cuckoo clock" bird (which reminds me of my grandmother) and the fascinating article on bird languages (which reminds me of going to school -- which I loved!) Love the little note card too. She will probably wind up on an ATC someday. <3<3<3
Comment: Kerri, you are so funny. I love the card, both front AND back...cool inking technique! Look forward to swapping with you again! Also, love the notecard and article. Maybe birds will be the new dolphin!
Comment: â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥ You, my precious, are amazing and I don't give a damn what those ugly assed loser friends of yours say behind your back, I think you're WONDERFUL! The box alone is a beautiful creation and I'm so glad it was created for me. Everything inside is awesome and I LOVE the giant rat. Thank you so very much for the dazzling array of goodies. You GET me, you really get me. =D â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thanks for the cute owl bag. You did a great job on your first sewing project and the extras are lovely. This was a fun swap - thanks for organising. I hope you do another, I'd definately join again.
Response: oh cool~ I will! Thank you for the heart!!
Comment: Thank You for the beautiful / natural swap - I love what you chose - the peacock feather reminded me of the Arboretum - we used to go there when I was little...I love the shells, bag, sea glass, charms, mini mushrooms.... and the card you made was gorgeous :)
Response: In Santa Anita or PV? I remember them, too!
Comment: Thanks for the card and the photo although I'm pretty sure he's a baboon and not an orangutan. But it looks as if he's having great fun anyway! We'll see what we can do about bowing down via the post, I definitely appreciate your effort.
Response: You are right! Brain fart about the baboon!
Comment: Sorry to rate so late, and thank you for going to the trouble of re-sending. I used to keep security envelopes too until I realised I was addicted and had far too many, haha. I still stop a second before throwing them in the recycling bin. ;)
Comment: My apologies for rating late, no doubt I was rating you while my own beloved wee boy was exclaiming over the tiny joys and I neglected to hit the all-important "save ratings" button. The calculator clip is my favorite. Thank you for the fun swap.
Comment: Thanks, Kerri. Love the tiny pie and cupcakes! What a tedious task that must be! But well worth it. I love them! Riley, the poodle is great. He just got a haircut last week. Thanks for asking about him. I like the poodle drawing on the envelope!
Comment: REALLY and totally amazing - I love â™¥ the shrine/box it was sent in and all of the handmade goodies( handmade = â™¥ to me it shows effort and thought) - thank you for being a great swap partner and host and coming up with such a fun swap :) I had the best time with this!!!
Response: I'm so glad!!! Thanks for the compliments-they mean alot!
Comment: Brilliant interpretation~ I loved the wrinkly envelope, touchy feely atc and tiny pomander. The taste portion and beautiful little charms are delightful and most appreciated! Thank you so much!
Comment: SO VERY COOL!!!! I LOVE it all!! I LOVE the bloody hearts ATC, they rock! I love the spool box inside the very awesome robot box! Those magazines will be awesome to use and stare at. I LOVE the little Japaneses glass bottle-too cool!!! The monster card rocked! 1 million hearts for you!!!!!!!
Thank you so much for all the time and energy you put into our very cool swap!
Comment: Yay! Just got this today. So fun! And you made so many different designs, wow! i love them! The handmade card is lovely, too, and thanks so much for the fun extras! i looove buttons, and have wanted to grow my small collection for awhile now. The little note and photos of Taime cracked me up. i googled him after i commented on your profile, and was like, "Yikes! What happened!" Hahaha! He looks downright ridiculous in that get-up now...poor wayward rocker. Thanks for a great swap! :)
Comment: I LOVE your postcard, I love the painting you made so much! Your work is emotional & beautiful & I can't stop looking at it. She's beautiful, little halo, & heart broken wings & all. I shall be framing her for our household. Your work shall be hanging in the main entrance way & art hallway of our warehouse. Thank you! P.S. (on the card message) I hope his ribs heal quickly! Ouch! EDIT: I just received your beautiful additional collage PC this evening. It's fantastic & perfect for this theme! Thank you! Btw, I too continue to worry about Meg, & actually I do cook w/some lemon. I use it in Lebanese vegan cooking, too. ^_^ It's oranges & grapefruit that causes an immediate problem in small doses for me.
Comment: How fun to have you as a partner again. That little girl really is creepy. The pics of Donovan are great. I will have to get some old music out and play today. All the goodies you sent are great. I think I need to come to your house to eat, it all sounds so yummy! Thanks for a great swap and being such a great partner. Hugs & Hearts, Mona
Comment: I thank you for a great swap hon :) Using items that we would use to 'paint' ourselves with on V-day as one of the mediums is a great idea. I'm sure an art-critic would have a fieldtrip with the psychology behind that one. Very unique style - I appreciate it :) The extras were great - you spoiler you.
Comment: Oh wow I love the little box with peacocks on it. So pretty I already have it in my office with paperclips in it. The little plate is so cute. I didn't have any Wyoming plate so that you very much.
Response: YAY!!! WSo glad you could give them a home!
Comment: Kerri, thank you SO much for the beautiful package that you sent me! Everything is gorgeous; I especially love the watercolor/stamp card that you made. It was so much fun opening the letter to see all of those amazing surprises! <3 Merci !!!
Comment: Love it, thanks for the Dotee faces, they are SO cute...the gold card stock, perfect for scrapbooking, the purple stuff, all of it, bags, love the gosimer bag with the stars.The fabrics, fibers and ribbions! Thanks!!!
Comment: Oh my gosh! I love the box you made me! It is the best swap item I have received since I started swapping last year! Love Marie!! I would give you more hearts if I could. Thanks for all the extra's too. It was filled with wonderful surprises. :)
Response: Oh, so glad! FIrst one I ever made, and I'm honored by the compliment!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fabulous ATC - I love it! It is so creative - I would never have thought of using lipstick in a valentine. Thank you also for the brilliant hand painted card, all the wonderful different papers and awesome painted ATC backgrounds. You truly made my day.
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun envie full of goodies. Both kids will love coloring the stickers. So nice that you included them. The New York pages are fabulous!Happy New Year. Hugs & Hearts, Mona
Comment: I love the card, Kerri, it's so light and airy. You did good! :) Love the stickers and charm too. Thanks so much! Oh, and I did want to mention that the tape on the flap of the envelop stuck to the stuff inside. No damage, but thought you'd want to know for future.
Comment: Brilliant double ATC! Both were fun alone; together insanely wonderful Thanks also for the tiny envie w/weird aluminum spikes/rolls--I love oddball stuff like that. Great handmade envelope, too. Yay!
Comment: thanks for the ATCs... they are so cute! you should really take time to come visit New Orleans. Its a GREAT city and theres so much to do.. its pretty much better than before. there are only several parts that are still suffering, but not directly in the city. I hope one day you'll get to visit!! take care! :)
Comment: (I was having trouble giving hearts for a while; that's why it took so long to rate.) Thanks SO much for all the cool papers you sent! I really appreciate you sending all the thing I like :) Loved your letter & will write back in Jan.
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great ATC's and all the extras!!!! I LOVE them. I dig the glass! No cuts to report as of yet. I also really love the pin up lady... Miss Betty I believe. You have a great eye for art and I would be honored to swap again with year in the new year. I LOVE those little pictures....what the hell kind of camera is it! I LOVE graffiti art. I stand like an idiot anytime train goes by and wish I could go be a tagger when I grow up....shit I am 38...I feel about 21....old enough to enjoy a good drink and young enough to enjoy dirty movies..hahahaha. Thank you again for all the great eye candy. I am putting your ATC's in the front of my ATC Book!!! Lets do a dark theme and maybe even a dream one in the new year....
Comment: I am sending your pony via PonyExpress. I hope he gets to you in time for Christmas; however, he is more or less just running to your house, so I don't even know if he knows where he is going. Chances are, he'll just get lost and end up in some strange city somewhere...getting drunk every night to forget about his lost future...HAPPY HOLIDAYS! :D
Comment: (";) *Reply to your response*: BISOOTILI GPOI! lol
Response: I got your comment on my profile. You are mean. AND brilliantly awesome! You know what? YOU SUCK! and besides you have been studying Swahili so long you can't even icon English any more... so sorry 4 u!
Comment: Thank you for the collection of handmade notecards - it was very interesting to see how you interpreted my profile. :) I'm as in the dark as you re. the intended use of the stamp edge border/frame thing - maybe some kind of transfer? I'll let you know if I ever find out! Thanks for a fun swap. :)
Comment: Hi Kerri,
I want to let you know that i love the card you sent, the vivid red and the little adornment gave it just the right feel! I did not put it away in my collector book because i wanted to show it to a friend later in the evening and have been looking for it ever since, I could kick myself, if i cant find it i would be so appreciative if you would do a private swap with me, its such a cool ATC.
Comment: Kerri, what a fun and thoughtful swap package! The Cab Card is really good, I love it. And the card you made, with the doll, is wonderful. Thank you so much for everything, sweetie. :) (milagros, YES!!)
Comment: Thank you for the very detailed kitchen email! I love the dog dining area, it's very nice and spacious for the pups! Also, love the backsplashes, they're beautiful! It makes me want to do it to mine! :)
Comment: Hey! Love the "Home of the Stars" postmark. My sister lives out there. I got a good laugh out of the creepy clown. I wonder what the picture was originally for? The lady next to him looks like she has a pretty scaree wig on, herself. Maybe it was for a bad wig ad?
Response: They really mark it that way??? Funny I never noticed. Oddly enough it was from an ad for home interiors.I'm glad you liked it!!
Comment: Thanks so much! I was afraid to send my postcards plain through the mail, too. Are those images from a real murder? I really thought it was a great postcard. Maybe we'll have the chance to swap again!
Response: I can't remember; it was on some guy's site. I know he photoshopped part of it though, so maybe no? I'll try to find again.
Comment: What a wonderful little parcel of mail goodness, thank you so much! I liked the stamps, and the cards & ribbon & the pen & the booklet & of course the gluestick, because you can never have enough! I had mail everyday this weekend!! I hope you get a fabulous Weekend Mail envie too! ;)
Comment: I love it- the plum color theme thru-out is beautiful. All glittzie and glamour. I used the same image but they look totally different. Thanks for the extras- all matching, and ready to use. Thanks again.
Comment: I would give ya two dozen hearts if i could.. your package in the mail was the ONLY good thing about today. (amongst other things I ruined my jeeps engine today) After a long frustrating day, I came home to this envie that i could not imagine was for what swap?! It was tooooo much! Lots of great stuff, all of which you did based on my profile, and all of which I loved. You made my day not be so bitter in the end. Thanks for the sweetness in my mailbox! OH... also... the thank you cards are great, I think on swap bot we often may think oh i rated that person they know that i said thanks, but it seems impersonal. thank you for a gentle reminder that the reason we swap is not so we can get stuff, but rather to connect with fellow souls with common interest...
Response: Yours was so easy because of that. Getting stuff is fun, but putting a package together for someone that you "get" is more fun because you know how happy it will make them.Let me know if you want to do Private swap.
Comment: Thanks so much for the great card! It's going up on my wall, for sure! Also, I hope the postcard that I sent to you wasn't the one torn to shreds :( Oh, and big thanks for the stamps...you rock!
Response: I was wondering when that thing would get there! Nope wasn't yours my dear. Admit it, the postal spit out was your favorite.
Comment: Kerri! I'm not going to lie. My cats are in love with you. They asked who is this wonderful person that spoils us with catnip toys, delicious teeth cleaning treats and colorful mice! Oh they love you! You were far too kind - Xanadu has spent the last 2 hours chasing mice and Essy is just laying on top of the sardine catnip tin! Here's a pic to show their happiness (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4008/5077027897_06ac7f3bcd_o.jpg) You really are the best - big hugs to you and your pups and Miss Katinkia forever. <3
Response: I am so glad! Everything WAS sent with love from Miss Katinka from beyond!
Comment: Thank you! You are too funny, worrying about them being crooked! They were wonderful! Thanks for the note and the extra recipe. When I was younger I worked in a Greek restaurant and hummus and baklava were my favorites!
Comment: Hey there! I got the awesome card you made. I love the creative title and the "cambiar" definition - very creative! Thank you for decorating the envie, too! It made me smile to see a big internal diagram of the heart in my mailbox! Thank you so much! <3
Comment: I love your PC! I want to visit the west coast so badly... Have you ever been to glass beach? I want to go there, and to the Redwood Forests, and I want to see a whale, IN THE OCEAN. Have a sweet week!
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard - sorry about your terrible trailer experience - it always feels so risky buying a vintage trailer and dealing with the money part. I found ours on Tin Can Tourists classifieds - just going to the site makes my heart hurt there are so many cute trailers listed. :)
Comment: What a treat this swap was. Very inspiring. You included so many things I can use in other swaps and projects. Thank you! I loved that you included my children in the swap as well. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Big heart from me to you, Misscorbeau!
