Comment: Ahhh, your saltines card took me way back -- saltines were a favorite snack as a kid :) Little did I know that it and ginger ale were also remedies for an upset stomach. I also enjoy box recipes; I also considered them as a bonus feature. I also appreciate the Medal of Honor postage! Is the veteran whose sepia/black and white photo you included a family member/relative? Hope you have a good weekend, and I look forward to more swaps like these :)

Comment: I am starting to think that I need an embosser.
Response: Don't wanna be a stuff pusher, but I am liking mine. I have been buying embossing folders at joann fabric and on eBay. The machines can cut too. I'm not as into that, and the cutting dies are more expensive than the embossing folders, but I did get one cutting die that I am using to cut snowflakes out of soda cans, which I think is pretty neat! My machine is a sizzix big kick. I had to pay for a few other things to get started: a pair of cutting plates and this "book" thing with flip open "pages" to help adjust the various dies to the right height to go thru the machine. I think that's called a "multipurpose platform". And of course a bunch of embossing folders. So the startup cost is about $150. I bought my machine on eBay. Shipping was expensive, but it was still cheaper than buying new online.

Response: Hee hee. Temporarily stalled. I realized recently that I need to set up a table to do some mass production. I had been working in smaller batches on the floor, but that's gonna kill my back. I have a table picked out, but I need to clear, um, well, LAST YEAR'S Christmas card production supplies (I guess now that I'm busted - so lazy!) off of it before I can make room for THIS YEAR'S cards. I was JUST thinking today that I need to get on that.

Comment: So exciting to see what you did! The letterpress items I have played with at the library open houses have all been type -- I am so curious about the card that appears to be hand-drawn! And the jellyfish are, well, awesomely jellyfishy :) Got a chuckle out of the Goofy Book. We used to have one at both National Park visitor desks that I volunteered at.
Response: One of the classes I took was for making light-sensitive polymer plates for printing. You make a transparency with your image drawn or printed on it, then expose the "raw" polymer plate to UV light thru your image. Everything not protected by the drawing gets soft and you wash it away in a scrubber. Then you "bake" the plate to make it hard and you can print with it. The jellyfish came in a set of images I bought at Barnes & Noble (did you know that you can buy clip art collections? I did not!). I drew the zentangle. The swap card is a combo of type and polymer plate.

Response: I love love love love to use Scotch Brand Quick-Dry Adhesive. No-run formula. Mess-free, precision tip. Photo Safe. It's just white glue that dries clear, and I've had really good luck with it holding (I tried some clear Tombow on old stamps this winter and every single one of them fell off - SO BAD). They USED to have a better, finer, tip. I don't like the new tip - precision, snort, not so much - so I bought my own tips on eBay and got luckily they fit.

Thanks for including the instructions, and making me wish I was not so scared of sewing machines... ;)
Response: You can make it without a sewing machine. Pretty much need an iron, tho. And if you don't sew the edges, you probably want to use pinking scissors to finish the edges or sew them by hand so it doesn't peel apart. Ooooooor, you could find something thick, like a rubber hot water bottle. Oh, gosh, just make one out of leather like the original. All you need is a craft knife and a hole punch then! The nice thing is that you can make any size you want. Be sure to look at videos of how people have filled their books. Talk about a big time suck!!

Comment: I love that postcard. Where did you get that cool card at? The stamps were well done too. Great job! Thanks.
Response: Took me a minute to remember what I sent. I believe that all of my cards this round were vintage USPS pre-paid postcards. I bought a few different lots of assorted cards on eBay. USPS sells new versions with the right amount of postage. You have to add extra stamps to the vintage cards to get them up to current postal rates. FYI - they make pre-paid envelopes too and you can find vintage versions on eBay.

Comment: Betsy! Loved the stamps. I hope your ice cream turned out!!! I have such a weakness for ice cream... I may end up at Sonic now for a milkshake!!! O_O
Response: Hmmm. It kinda turned out. Kinda. We kicked it back and forth on the porch for 1/2 hour or so. It froze HARD to the sides, and it was TOUGH to get that out. But the middle was still fairly mushy. I stirred in the rhubarb sauce. Didn't get lovely streaks, more like a rhubarb shake (it mixed in too well - I have no idea how you'd ever get lovely stripes of "flavor"). Then I froze it harder. It was DELICIOUS. I put a kitchen aid mixer ice cream attachment on my Christmas list. I dunno if I'll ever have enough room in our freezer. But I am kind of on a mission to clear out some space. No point in keeping mummified food in there til doomsday. Especially when I could use the space for an ice cream maker instead!

Comment: Many thanks for the great letter! Naturally, I enjoyed reading about your book hobbies. Wuthering Heights to me is a nostalgic childhood book, I found an ancient copy of it from our attic when I was young. I'm actually digging Heathcliff, he's the sort of character who could be good but - because of some personal emotional damage or weakness - does everything wrong.. I like Emily Brontës writing because she's so unique and different to other (female) writers of her time. My favourite books are often ones that have stayed with me for many years, ones that I tend to refer to and read again and again. I loved the way your letter and the envelope looked, and it was cool to learn about the typewriter you used. Thanks!

And also loved finding a fellow-pencil addict. Feel free to email me or pm me when more of these swaps are hosted, I would love to do more of them. Thanks so much for the swap & being a great hostess. :-)

Comment: I received your letter and I'm getting ready to read it but I wanted to rate first! I'm soooooo jealous of the typewriter... you and @ColoradoKate both have one and I was just thinking to myself that I need to go try and find one. I love that cursive font and yeah... I want one! The Rilakuuma paper is perfect. I don't like to receive it hmmm trying to explain.. I don't need anymore unused Rilakuuma paper but when I receive letters on it, that's just fine! I'll be writing back... it might take a few days as the next few days are a whirlwind of BIZZY!!!! Thank you! :)
Response: I would HIGHLY recommend an Olympia SM9 Cursive machine. Manual (non-electric), built like a tank, with a dreamy hefty no-nonsense touch. Fairly big for a "portable" - I wouldn't carry one around on the bus, but small enough to stow under my desk or in a clost. I loooved my Selectric, but it was truly huge - a behemoth, and the SM9 feels as substantial without the annoying electric hum and a much more reasonable size. Reviewers ding it for being too plain, but I love that it's very utilitarian. Sorry to natter on about it, but I love love love that typewriter.

Comment: Hiya Betsy, Loved the little Batty Bats and my Grand loved the drippy goo on the front. Bats are very cool, used to watch em circle my house at twilight. Most don't have rabies and won't go after humans. They eat tons of bugs and mosquitoes. Great swap.
Response: I love bug eating fuzzy bats, but I'll never touch one in the wild! There was a huge story on public radio this summer about a girl who got bitten by an injured bat she was trying to help. She developed full-blown rabies. The doctors her put into an experimental coma to minimize brain damage and she survived. I saw a related article about some people (in South America?) who they think may have natural resistance/immunity to rabies thru repeated expose from biting bats. Yikes! I left my cute little buddy undisturbed in my eaves.

Comment: I would have *loved* to be there for a shuttle launch! I am so jealous of your vacation. Thanks for the memento.
Response: We were across the causeway in a public park (Space View Park, but still, a fair distance from the launch pad), so it was a little like watching a teeny tiny Tinkerbell firefly rise up into the sky. Even so, it was majestic and it was hard not to cry as you watched it (I am NOT a cryer, but those are PEOPLE going into SPACE in that little bug). I'm so glad I made the effort to go down to watch it. It was fun to hang out with my dad, and it's nice to know that he got to see it too. It was the day before his birthday. Kewl all around.

Lately I make orders of it through the janet store of about 150.00 per order once a few months or when I get low. I don't have an Aidi grocery here, never heard of it to be honest.

Response: Fine Arts Degree = BIG. FAT. LIE. I am an artistic doofus!! 104 movies in a year is my personal record. It helped that one of the theaters I liked ran a few series of really old movies. That got me going fairly regularly on weeknights which helped jack up my numbers.

Comment: Thanks for the card! You are a braver woman than I, experimenting with embossing powder. I own some but haven't figured out what to do with it.
Response: Use it! Use it! Use it! I looooove my embossing powder. I think the little bit of 3D texture and the rich colors are my fav parts. I've slacked off on stamping - and card making in general. But I still like to get out my embossing powder and these swaps are the perfect excuse.

Comment: I've actually been interested in getting a fountain pen for going over my drawings - would it cover a waxy colored pencil you think? Are they permanent? Thank you for the nice letter and have a great day!
Response: All of the fountain pen inks that I know of are water-based. None of them would cover waxy pencil. Some fountain pen inks are waterproof, some of the Noodler's brand inks are "bulletproof": waterproof, UV proof, bleach proof, acetone proof. However, even the waterproof and "bulletproof" inks may streak and run when wet. The writing should remain visible and legible, but the color may change as some non-permanent components wash away.

With refills it would be possible, the quilt, I imagine you could have made one. and although for me travelling is a term used in basketball, I imagine some people are lucky enough to visit many places. I love quits ty for the pc. I have two on my bed all year round (the heavy old handmade kind). suzanne
Response: Great guess - you're right! Although they DO make a lifetime pen: http://www.cyberspacepens.com/pens/Fisher-Space-Pens/Lifetime-Pens.html Bangkok was fun, and I love that quilt. I made it as a present, but them gave away another one instead because I liked it too much.

I've just gotten so many "letters" which don't amount to much more than a postcard, that I wanted to make it clear that this is a L.E.T.T.E.R. If you don't want to WRITE something, then p'raps it's a good time to consider whether a "letters and writing" swap is really a place you want to go!

Comment: Thanks, Betsy, for the long letter explaining your experience. I really do believe "communication phenomena" happen -- science can't explain it but may be able to in the future. I've never experienced it but I haven't seen ghosts either and I believe there are some. Another swapper recently told me of a communication experience somewhat similar to yours. Some things we just accept and don't have to explain.

Comment: It's always wonderful to receive mail from you. :) I don't have a black light but may need to find one now. Thanks for the bonus SNL stamps too.
Response: You don't need a black light for the stamp book - no hidden surprises for you. I originally made the stamps to put on mail that I did write on with black light ink, so my friends would know to get out their light. Tanglecraft got me into making books. Since the stamps were already made I was halfway to a book so that was the second one I ever did.

Comment: Thanks for my cards. I am really intrigued by the octopus stamp you made. I am going to have to explore that technique.
Response: I think I said this, but it's photo-polymer. You have to make some kind of negative with your image(s) on it. You lay the negative over your photo-sensitive polymer, then expose it to UV light. The exposed bits get hard, but the parts shielded by the black part of your negative stay soft. You wash out the soft bits with water and a brush. Then you dry the plate, and put it back under UV light to harden the whole thing. Viola - you have a printing plate. There is a book-making/printing shop here where I rent time on both the platemaker machine which does all the exposing and washing for me. It's like a 3-story easy-bake oven - washing on top, then a compartment with the UV light, and a dryer compartment on the bottom. I don't know if you can get equipment of your own for a reasonable price or not.

I love the extended black light theme, from the artistamps, to your hand-carved 'killer', to the little mini-torch - and OMG the Blue Ghost ink! I will let you know how I get on mixing it with other colours. I can't believe the awesome selection of FP inks you included; I already have inky little fingers today, and I can't wait to test them all out! This is honestly the most wonderfully personalised packaged I have ever received - thank you so much. You have totally made my day! :-D

Comment: Hi Betsy! Love the weathered art you did... very creative! And love the stamps, too...! One small suggestion: if you choose to do something like this again in the future, attach to something... a fabric piece can't really make it on its own through the mail... it needs to be able to hold its shape. The P.O. sent it along to me in an envie they provided with a note of explanation. ; )
Response: I left the weathered art completely naked, as per the swap requirements: "At the end of a week, bring your art in, let it dry if it needs to, then write the addresses on the back of the actual art itself and mail them naked to your partners." I also paid the USPS non-machinable charge for items which do not play nice with postal machines. Half the fun of sending unusual mail is the special plastic bag and note from the USPS. ;)

I still laugh every time I think of Chevy Chase doing Ford with a hugh syringe sticking out of his arm. Guess that really dates me!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked my stamps! It was a lot of fun to make them. I had a coupla stamps made (Ford, Nixon, Reagan) which I like to use next to the "real" stamps of the same name (I bought a whole sheet of Nixon on eBay for just over the face value). This swap inspired me to expand my collection and put them into a book.

Comment: I laughed & laughed! (I'm a big SNL fan.) I'm SO impressed with these stamps, Betsy. Did you do the perfs with a sewing machine? How did you get the glue on the back? (or are those trade secrets...=grin=)
Response: Yea! I'm so glad you like them! They are super funny if you can find the real Reagan, Nixon, or Ford stamps on ebay and use them alongside the fake ones. I bought a sheet of 50 Nixon stamps for face value, and need to stock up on Ford and Reagan. I got a pizza wheel thingy with a pointy star for a wheel from a site that's no longer around. I googled the brand name from the handle, and found the same thing (Excel Pounce Wheel) here and at Dick Blick online: http://www.in2art.com/art-supplies/excel-pounce-wheels The glue is "Lick & Stick Remoistenable Envelope Glue" by Green Sneakers. I've seen it in stores, and it looks pretty easy to find online.

Comment: WOW- What a fantastic postcard! Totally genius, makes me want to stop being scared of sewing machines. Does the sewing machine do the embroidery? I have no idea how that stuff works. Best handmade card I’ve received in a while, thanks Betsy!
Response: Yeah, after 25 years I upgraded to my first electronic machine just so I could get the fancy stitches and letters. I'm a total hack when it comes to sewing, so you just just give it a try. You can get a decent machine for under $100. Take a look at the Janomes, if you're interested. You might be able to pick up a used one for nearly free and pay $50 to get a good tuneup.
