Response: You are very welcome, I had fun creating it and just re-potted and cleaned up several house plants :),I'm thinking of my garden too but a little early to d anything but light cleaning outside. Enjoy and hope e trade again.
Comment: What a wonderful parcel of lovely things. That is the best I can say, sadly my mail box ate the envelope a little bit but it is still great all the same and worthy of hearts, you put a great deal of effort into this swap and I super appreciate it. I hope you had a good time at the Parade for Chinese new year.
Response: I hope you enjoyed the lunar New Year as well- thank you for the heart and kind words.
Comment: Thank you for your fish postcard! I like the colors and the 'fish-glittering' :-D The rainbow trout fish from the children's book, I've made it, in paper maché! You can find a small picture of it here: https://www.elpapel.nl/kinderboeken-figuren/
Also thanks for the nice stamps, unfortunately they were not stamped :-/
Response: I like your mache art, thank you for sharing and rating. I am not sure what the deal is with stamps not looking cancelled they arrive like that all the time, I sort of wonder if they are reading them electronically some how.
Comment: Thank you. I don't see the hippo but love the owl on stilts.
Response: HI, thanks for rating...There is an oval in the bottom left hand corner with a mom and a young hippo and they are wearing birthday hats. I added the birthday cupcake near them, it is supposed to be the hippos party and entertainment.

Response: Mickey and Minnie are on share the love and have a heart but they are animals too! I am in both, I'm hosting too. LOL I guess they could have gone on either :) Thanks for ratings <3
Comment: Thank you for your festive handmade card and wallpaper in a decorated envelope!! Love how you spent NYEve - curious to know what (bunny-proof) movies you watched :-)
Response: I probably squished the words- the living room is bunny proofed - there is a heavy glass lasagna pan covering the floor electrical outlet and cords- they want to bite the cords and would get hurt. I also block off the sides of the TV. We watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit!!! <3 Thanks for rating
Comment: At last...the 1+1 card arrived today. The postal gods had put it into a plastic sleeve with an apology for damage to the card. But I don't really see any damage, the cute smowman and animals are there. Your bunny did a great job of posing.
Response: OH my gosh- where did it travel to? These cards have more adventures than I do sometimes. Glad it wasn't really damaged and happy you like it :)

Thank you for putting so much time and effort into making this bunny and he will be treasured forever. I see you even included the rabbit of Caerbannog, minus the big sharp pointy teeth!

Response: Thank you for rating and the heart, I have only done one other tin and am trying to get better at them as I think they are a beautiful form of art. I really like the end result but was frustrated with the drying time.
Comment: Thank you Nancy :) St Paddy's Day ATC arrived today along with a last of season wintery snowy reminder but spring is on the way with your especially cute clovers and sparkle. Thanks for the papers too ;)
Response: Your welcome. Thank you for rating and I hope you are into nice weather, we finally got some today ;).
Comment: My package was utterly fantastic and obviously made with care. Loved loved it! Would be happy to swap anytime. â¤
Response: Thanks for rating and the heart, it was fun and we have some similar interests.. I see you have a Wonderland swap up which I'm watching but have some other commitments I must attend to first. Hopefully I can join but if not this maybe the next. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you, the envelope is cute and thanks for the muppet notecards. Never saw them before. And the stickers. Love everything. Interesting story seeing Henson, was it Jim?
Response: Thanks for rating and the heart. No it was Brian, Jim died when I was in my 20's (I think) part of the service was on the PBS documentary. The archives are 2 miles from my home but they are private.
Comment: Thanks for the swap. I think the ATC, your lists and the extras are great. Really like what you did with the crayon rubbings on each paper. Hope to see more of these and sorry not as many people signed up for this one.
Response: I really had fun researching this and have a dime and a quarter theme planned out one should go up later this week. I was amzaed at what 2 cents could once purchase. Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Beautiful envelope:-) I love everything beach and ocean!! It made my day to receive this and the hand made envelope and heart and "you are Beautiful" sticker made me smile- I was having a really hard day and this really cheered me up. Thank You!!! :-)
Response: I'm so glad I drew the beach after reading your profile so that makes me very happy.
Comment: Hi Nancy! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to the New Year! Thank you for the lovely comments; you can never go wrong with a Care Bear--I think I still have one in storage too! It's so cool that you dress a bear for you tree. Does he get a new outfit every year?
Response: My bear has many outfits and two small suitcases to keep them in. ;) Thank you for rating and the heart.
Comment: Oh no!!!!! I am so sorry that I did not rate you earlier!!!!!! I have been so busy with Christmas ... and showing off your ransom letter! I love it! This will be a holiday tradition to put out!! (Maybe even at Easter!) Your letter was incredibly creative! Thank you so much! Again, I am sorry that I did not rate you sooner!
Response: Thank you for rating and the heart. Glad you liked it and it was so much fun to make. It was inspired by our life, we play Santa and Mrs Claus for a winter park and have a bunny that mugs Bill for cookies every chance he gets ;)
Comment: Hi Nancy! Thanks so much for the card and letter! Sounds exciting all the things you do and have done!!!! And thanks for the extras and the confetti was adorable! My daughter loved it! Have an awesome fall season!
Comment: I LOVE it! Thank you so much for the wonderful Day of the Dead magnet. It is fabulous and will live in my collection happily. Also thank you for the heartfelt letter. This was a wonderful swap!
Response: Really glad you liked it- its a beautiful holiday.
Comment: Spooky envie:-) I loved the Edgar Allen Poe postage stamp too. Too cool that you sent me box tops too, YES! I love your email addy, very original. Thank you for the tuck-ins and for being my partner in this swap. Happy Fall Mailings, ellie
Comment: Thank you for the Muppet link and I am so envious that you got to do Talk Like a Pirate Day and Krispy Kreme. Our closest one is about a hour away (good for my waistline bad in my opinion lol) Sounds like you had a lot of fun.
I also like the Hollywood version of Pirates as well. The thought of spending most of my life at sea wouldn't be nearly as much fun as Hollywood would make you think lol.
Response: You're welcome and just so you know there is only one walk up window krisy kreme in all of NYC. They were overrun with pirates <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap package. Even the outside package was great with the spider tape and the eyes looking at me from my zip code. Too cute! You did a great job decorating the cigar box. I don't know how you packed so much into it! I always love to receive useful items such as the new scissors, sharpies and pencils. Such fun Halloween stickers and stamp. Love the owl notebook and I think my son grabbed the hand gel as soon as I opened it. Thanks again for sending such a great swap. â˜º
Response: You're welcome it was fun to create. Have a great HAlloween
Comment: Ack! Nancy, I love, love, love my ATC! It is so adorable! And no, it didn't get ruined at all. I can't wait to see the 2nd movie. My daughter went and saw it with a friend and raved about it when she got home. I find the minions to cute and quirky! If I could give you more than 1 heart I would!
Comment: Hey Nancy Lee! Thanks for the great pink-and-orange! I enjoyed the letter greatly and the black light will be used to see how things glow...I was surprised at how well the flower on the back made it...it's pretty three dee...
Response: Glad it made you smile thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Hello! The fishes arrived! Thank you so much, I love it. :) And thank you also for the things inside and the nice letter.
Yes, you are right, there is a Miffy museum in the city Utrecht. I love Miffy! :)
Comment: Totally totally previous gnome - Great mixed media. I keep feeling his beard it so silky and shiny. Love it - thank you!
Response: LOL nail polish painted and let dry onlyuntil tacky than "drawn" through with tooth pick , than let dry thoroughly. Now you too can create that texture. Works with some other think paints too ;)
Comment: omg i wish i could give you more hearts!!! i loved the package the pen is not coming out of the box its being displayed, you got black and white and music it was perfect. thank you so much. <3 <3 <3
Response: Glad you liked it, it was fun to create.
Comment: Aw, thanks for re-sending!!! (Would have loved to have seen the first one.)
I â™¥ aquariums, too -the best ones we've been to would have to the underwater adventure at the Mall of America, MN (Jellyfish!) and one down in Vegas (seahorses!).
I will definitely be using the emery board (I love nailpolish), so thank you, thank you!
Take Care & Happy Swapping! :D
Response: Who knows it might still arrive I just got a card mailed from FL in March.
Comment: Thank you..but had to pay $1.05 in postage. It did have postage but it was not enough to cover size and weight. I will take a picture and show you where they stamped the front of the envelope and charged me another $1.05 and put it on my flickr
Response: I believe you, do you want me to paypal (immediate) over? Send to you cash? Send to you stamps? No idea why they would do that everything else went and was way heavier. Really sorry
