Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for a great Bag of Fun. All my favorite things. The tiny buttons are adorable and just perfect for Barbie doll clothes. I've never seen the cold brewed tea before but if it's TEA I'll like it. The cross stitch pattern is beautiful but will be a real challenge. Thanks again I loved it all.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! It was really fun putting it together for you! Thanks you for rating and for the heart! Hope you have a great summer!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC, and for the extras. The bird is especially adorable. I checked the back of the card to see if it was handmade because it is so nice looking. I will borrow the idea.
Redeeming Love was the second Francine Rivers book, I read (after The Atonement Child) and I thought it was wonderful. I think of Angel often. Have you read The Mark of the Lion Trilogy. It is also wonderful.
Response: I haven't read that yet, but I am going to order it from the library right now ;0). I did make the card and I'm glad you liked everything!!! Thanks for the kind words and the heart!!!
Comment: Hi Tracey . . .
Really enjoyed reading your responses to the 13 questions. I was surprised to receive back some of my own snail mail stickers, though! Thank you for taking time with the swap.
Response: Oh my goodness that is so funny! You know I wondered if maybe you had sent them at some point but I was so excited that I remembered I had them when I read in your profile your love of snails! Lol sorry about that :/
Comment: Tracey ~ I love my OWL ATC, they are gorgeous and I love the colors!! Thank you for the extra's, they are great!! I have 4 rolls of wallpaper boarder and now I know what I am going to use it for!! Do you have a Coke coffee mug? If not, you need to get one LOL! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas...xo Kelly :)
Response: So glad you like the owls ;0) I soooo need a diet coke mug!!! Good idea ;0)
Comment: The resend made it safe and sound. Thanks!
Editing: The original envelope finally turned up! So apparently my mailman has been just jamming stuff for me into the wrong box, we have a new guy and he just hand delivered me a big handful of mail, some from as far back as last july, and yours was in there. Sadly despite the "do not bend" it was completely crumpled and nearly everything in it ruined. Double incompetent! At least the mystery is now solved.
Response: I'm so so glad! Thanks for being gracious and thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Tracey, I love your choice of paper assortment! Thank you for the extra papers and die cuts too! I esp liked your creative envelope made from a decorated file folder! I think I am going to have to "borrow" this idea! :) Ali
Response: Glad you like them! And feel free to borrow the idea...it's fun!!! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the excellent envie and the surprises inside! I will be using all of them. Starting to really feel like fall up here! All the fireweed flowers are gone and we usually get our first snow within a couple weeks of that. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Yay! I'm glad it reached you so quickly and that you liked it! Happy fall!!!
Comment: Thank you for the variety of kitty things. Most I've never seen. I have only one of the rubber stamps you used and different cat die cuts, so I know I can put all of these to good use. I'm smiling looking at the captions on the pictures. And, thank you for the extra postcards.
Response: Glad you like them and can use them! ;0) thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: Thanks, Tracey, for the verse card from John, one of my favorites books of the Bible and the river message magnet to go with it. The verse will be tucked into my Community Bible Study notebook/tote bag, and the magnet is already on the fridge! Have a blessed week and enjoy the remaining summer days!
Response: Yay! I'm glad you enjoy the verse and the magnet ;0) thank you so much for the heart! Hope you have a super week!

Response: Yes I live in a tiny little town! I do love it here though!!! I'm glad you enjoyed the ATC! Have a super day!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the scavenger hunt items. These are so cool! I love flowers, I'm going to plant the seeds, but I don't get much sun by my apt (which is great for keeping it cooler in the summer) so if they don't grow very well, I will move them to my neighbors, her flowers grow wonderfully.I will definitely use the pens, you must have known I needed a new one for work and now I don't have to go through my extras to see which ones still have ink. :) Oh and the stamps, I'll use as well, like I said I like flowers. The raisinettes and gum are going in my purse for my flight on Thursday for vacation. Yummy! and who couldn't use some extra hearts. Thank you! Thank you! Have a great day!
Response: Yay, you are very sweet! I'm glad you liked and can use your items! I hope you have a wonderful vacation!!!! Take care!

The stamps are great...how did you know I needed a new pot holder?...raisinets did not melt...love the ice cream (my fave food)stickers and coffee--I've not seen that kind before...I'll use the beautiful napkins for summer get togethers...think I'll use the gift tags when I send a swap. And thanks for the cocoa--I love flavored cocoa! HUGS!
Response: YAY! I'm always so happy when I send a swap that people can actually use! Sooooo glad the chocolate didn't melt! Enjoy!!!!
Comment: Sorry I am so late in posting your rating....I've had computer/health/family problems & have been all out of sync. Thanks for the wonderful homemade greeting cards, they are all so pretty. Do you have a machine for die-cuts?

Hope things are going better for you now! Take care.

Comment: I had so much fun finding each little blue thing in my baggie! The ATC you made is really beautiful! The fabric, ric rac & satin ribbon will come in handy. The little baggie of ephemera I love and I have always wanted to try the pretzel M & Ms! Sprinkle the shiny blue confetti all over these treasures and you have a blue treasure chest. To top it off, blue is my favorite color. Thanks so much for a well-done blue zip lock baggie! Take care, Susan
Response: Warning...once you try the m&m's you may not be able to think about anything else!!!!! They are so so so yummy! I'm glad you like the blue items I put together for you and hope you can use them all! Hugs-Tracey

Response: YAY glad you could use everything! Thanks a buch for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Hawaiian ATC. You combined lots of my favorite things (stamps, feathers, palm tree, leaves) and the blue/pink/silver colors were very effective. Nice job with the bleaching! Thanks also for the pretty extras - they will be used!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I Love the beach and that was a fun theme for me to play with. The bleach was fun to experiment with as well! Thanks for the kind words and the heart! :o)
Comment: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I can not express how much i love my atc's. They will be the pride of my collection and will be on the first page in my collection folder. i wan to frame them all because they are just soooooo beautiful but I will frame just one to put in my craft room. The only problem is choosing which one. I can only give 1 heart, but please know that it is a BIG one. Thank you again.
Response: I'm glad that they got there, I was getting worried that they may have gotten lost :o) I'm also very glad that you liked them. I really enjoyed making them for you! If you would ever like to do a private swap again, just let me know! Take care!!!!
Comment: It was really exciting to use a new kind of bookmark. Why has no one thought of these before!? The ones you made are really cute! Also: thanks for the papers, I can really use them.
Update: I got your resend too! I can see you had fun making them!! :)
Response: So glad you like them. Those were very fun to make. I think I will make some for some of my firends :) Enjoy the next batch too lol!!!
Comment: Omygoodness! Wow! What treats! Each atc is sooooo_ooooooo_soooo_soooooo creative! <3
Even though I <3 all three to the umpteenth degree, my favorite has to be the OoaK, the flamingoes - the black w/ pink polka dots feather just makes it so fantastic! Thank you so very much! I hope my atc's live up to half the beauty of yours! <3
Response: Wow those got there soooooo fast! That's wonderful! I really enjoyed making the flamingo one...I think that was my favorite too =) And I'm sure yours will be great!!!!! Thanks for swapping with me and let me know if you would like to swap again! Hugs
Comment: Finally, a rubber stamp swap from which I actually received something worthwhile. Thanks for the two butterfly stamps. So many folks on Swap-bot like butterflies so these new-to-me rs will be fun to use.
Response: I too love butterflies, but I have way way way to many, so I'm glad they will be put to good use! Thanks for the 5 and heart!
Comment: What a wonderful journal! It is so pretty and full of personality and was obviously a lot of work. I loved hearing about your beautiful Christian family. Thank you so much! I hope the person who sent to you was a thoughtful and creative. God bless!
Response: Oh I am so very glad you liked it. As i said in my note to you, it was my first, but it was so fun. I'm glad it went to someone who would appreciate it. Take care and thank you so much for the heart =)
Comment: Tracey! Its totally ok to have different tastes! I am a stamp-a-holic and I collect ALL kinds of stamps! I love the ones you chose for me, they are all wonderful! Thanks also for the fiber, which I love and the paper!! I love the lil froggie, seems strange to be on my profile but frogs are some of my favorite creatures. LOL, I LOVE the stationary you have, where did you get it? Thanks!
Response: I'm very glad that you liked them. I hope you get some use out of them! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you! :) We'll definitely be able to find recipes in these books, and as soon as I read that it was stuffed green peppers that you'd written.. my husband and I were both "mmmm" hehe :) Thanks!
Response: Glad you like the books:) Honestly that recipe is so very delicious. my family begs me to make it and our family and friends love it too. ENJOY! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Diet Coke ATC. You did a wonderful job on it. I am very touched that you chose to make that one instead of a coffee one. A coffee one would have been fine though. I'm well aware that I'm in the minority for not liking coffee. I actually love the smell of freshly brewed coffee, I just don't like the taste! And thank you with many extra hearts for the cutouts as well.
Response: Glad you like it =) Thanks for the heart!!!!
Comment: Thanks for the two excellent ATCs! The flower/text one is unusual and nicely done. While I am not a big fan of hearts and Cupid your card had such depth of detail and such rich colors I wound up REALLY liking it! Thanks so much.
Response: I'm so glad you liked them :) Thank you for the heart!
Comment: WoW!! My package rocked!! I have lots of ATC stuff at home, but the package you sent had goodies in it that I have never seen & that's RARE...THANKS SO MUCH Have to ask ya where did you find the tiny weeny clips??? and where do you get the plastic embellies.....black heart, arrow.....PLEASE do tell.....I LOVE THEM!!!!
Comment: Hello Tracey,
I received your ATC for this swap and when I opened it I got a smile on my face. Bears are one of my favorite things. I liked the way you used to two colors in combination for this swap. I hope we get further opportunities to swap with one another in the future. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!!
P.S. Thank you for the extras you sent along as well. I know I will find good ways to use them in my future creative endeavors.
Comment: Hello sorry about the late rating but I have been away for a bit and the Netherlands is a long way for a card to travel to ;-)
I Really really loved your card. I also like the picture ( I used the same one for one of my ATC's) anyway I use your ATC as a Book mark now so every time I pick up Le Mort D'Arthur there it is ;-)
Comment: Thanks for the ATCs. Not really sure why you sent me out of date vouchers as an extra though.
Response: Those were not extras...they were to protect the ATC's so they were not damaged in the mail. LOL I try to be "green" and use junk mail and things like that. Sorry you misunderstood, but I'm glad you liked the atc's and I hope you liked the actual extras. :)
Comment: This is special becauseyou took the time to check out my favorite colors. Thank you. I love the dragonfly! Very thoughtful of you to include the extras that I can use in my grandson's 3rd grade scrapbook. Thanks ever so much, and keep swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the Kodiak bear (didn't know there was such a bear...)
Don't worry about it being simple, sometimes a simple ATC makes a nicer one. I love it!
(And a big thanks for the stunning extras, they will definitely come in handy for the other letters.)
I REALLY love your ATC :)
It's the first card I get and also thanks for your message!
At the moment I am actually busy with assignment I have already got from university, but your Jellyfish card really encourages me and makes me happy.
Thank you xx
Comment: Thanks for the great package of embellishments! Love them all- especially the papers. You extra "green" points for the great idea of using a junk mail flyer to protect all those great papers! Clever...
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC you've done a lovely job! Also thanks for the nice chipboard. What brand is it? We don't seem to get really thin chipboard like that it is nice :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked the ATC. The chipboard came from Archivers...i'm not sure of the brand since I took it out of the package and put it in a bin. Sorry I don't know more about it, but I'm glad you like what was sent...I will keep that in mind if we swap again! :)
