Comment: How cool that you share memories of Del Taco! I am going back home to visit next week so I'm really excited to load up on burritos and chili fries, LOL! I guess I should be hitting the gym before I go. Thank you for the postcard! And super cool stamps too.
Comment: Wonderful as always to hear from ya, Paige! I predict that the Patriots will play the Eagles in the Super Bowl! Guess we will find out tomorrow night! I don't watch/ have interest in sports either; only reason I even know what teams are in the running is because I am facilitating charters for Dicks Sporting Goods on Monday for the 4 teams up for the Super Bowl and know the Patriots and Eagles are the favored wins tomorrow night in their respective games ... lol
Response: Thank you for the great rating. I still have no idea who is playing in the Super Bowl. LOL
Comment: LOVE the collage you made!!! A snow leopard stamp! WOW!! Thanks for hosting such a fun swap. I hope we can do this one again. =) About tattoos- I think some are amazing art and I love watching the ink shows, but I'm allergic to dye and am afraid to get one myself. =( So I just enjoy seeing what other folks have. lol.
Response: You are most welcomed, I am so glad you enjoyed the PC. I had a lot of fun creating it. I am moving soon (we sold our house 2 days ago, so I am going to hold off on any swaps after my dash is clear, BUT I would love to do a private swap with you for the same thing after we get settled. :) Thanks for the fabulous rating.
Comment: Ah. . . a bike -- my mode of transportation until I was about 15!! I was on my bike all the time with my friends and we rode all over the place. I can still remember how much fun it was but alas those years are behind me. Thanks for the great PC that brought back so many great memories for me ~~
Response: So glad I could conjure up some nice memories for you. :) Thank you for the lovely rating. â™¥
Comment: hi Paige, thanks for the wonderful cat PC. Love it <3 <3 <3. I have a BBQ set at my place (it belongs to my landlord), but I don't party a lot and usually when I do I serve desserts instead of steak. :)
Response: Super happy you enjoyed the PC. I would love a party that served dessert instead of steaks! LOL
Comment: LOVE the PC, thank you so much! And it's always fun to get mail from someone with similar interests (although, I must say, this last season of OITNB was NOT my favorite - hoping the next one is better!).
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and Yeah last season wasn't my favorite either...I cried when Poussey (spelling) died though.
Comment: So I picked this up at the post office yesterday. How can they stare right at this box and not see it??!? It took them almost an hour to find it, bwahahaha!! I have only opened the 'extra' package. LOVE it!!! I'm seriously going to try to wait but I admit one or five might get opened before then. <3 Thank you so much and I know I'm going to go gaga for everything!
Response: LOLOL...So the old saying "If it would have been a snake"...fits perfectly huh? I am glad you liked the "extra". I am super excited to have you open everything...I have absolutely no will power what so ever. :P
Comment: Hi Paige, thank you so much for the resend so quickly. It was great getting to know you a bit and I love the postcards you chose. I've been wanting a Jamaica vacation for years. I would love to hear how you like it. :)
Response: So happy the resend reached you...and that you enjoyed everything. :) Thank you for the fantastic rating as well. â™¥ â™¥
Comment: Hi there! Your re-send just arrived, and I Thank You for the effort you made so I could receive this extremely bland postcard....I don't like it either! LOL! I want give you thanks and a Heart because you are really great. Be well! Diane

Comment: <3 <3 <3 !!! WOW, I am in Halloween Heaven right now! I LOVE the witch! Totally needed Halloween stamps! This is the coolest Halloween washi tape I have seen!

I really appreciate all that you put into this swap to make it so special :D Thank you <3
Response: YAY!!! I am glad that you enjoyed the package. It was fun to put together! Happy Halloween & thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: When I saw this swap in the back of my mailbox, my heart sank...I thought it was the one I sent to my partner being returned for more postage! I was so happy when I pulled it out of the mailbox to find that it was an envelope from Paige :) This was such a fun swap to send and receive. I took time to enjoy all the stickers on the envelope. Thank you for checking my profile and sending a nice note and profile goodies.
Response: Super happy it was my envie and not one being returned to you LOL. I am also very pleased that you enjoyed everything. I loved decorating it with all the stickers...I think I used at least 50 LOL...Anyway, thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful PC! I agree grandkids are so much fun. Mine live about 5 hours away so I don't get to see them as often as I like but we get together every chance we get.
Response: So glad you enjoyed the card...and thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Paige ~~ What a fabulous selection of PCs for this swap -- you went overboard!! I love the red building (The Netherlands has such vivid PCs) and the white cat is just gorgeous. I liked seeing the aerial view of London - sure looks like a lot of buildings and lights. . . and the Mystic Mermaids are just wonderful and I would love to see their show. Thanks again ~~
Response: So glad you enjoyed the choices I sent. Thank You for the great rating. :)
Comment: Thank you for this pc, Paige! I must admit, I like it if only because it is a book cover pc, but you're right that it looks kind of dull. I certainly would never pick that book up based on its cover! :-) Thank you for sharing!
Response: LOL...The old saying "Never judge a book by it's cover", works in this situation. ;) Thank you for the lovely rating!
Comment: Great PC for this swap. . . I always like these types of PC. . .days long past. Do you know if this place is still in business? Thanks again and hope to see you in future swaps ~~
Response: Oh I am so glad you enjoyed the PC. Such a nostalgic one huh? I don't know if the place is still open or not, but it would be fabulous to see how much it has changed if it is indeed still open. :)
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! Your note about the color looking like mashed up baby food made me laugh! I gave similar postcards away for this swap too. Instead of Puffin books, mine were from Penguin books lol.
Response: You are very welcome! I am glad it made you smile. I think I might have some of those "Penguin Book" PCs as well. LOL
Comment: As a kid, we did not go on many vacations, but we did go to Florida and loved it. I've been many times since. But I have never been on a vacation, just to see a specific museum! Sounds like fun! Hope you enjoy :~)
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating and We are booked for Sept. I've been to Florida many times also, but I've never been to Sarasota. :)
Comment: My oldest son just finished The Long Walk! My favorite I think aside from the Gunslinger series may be Needful Things. He's written so many excellent books that it's hard to choose. You should look into Ted Dekker...start with House. He's fantastic too!
Response: Thanks! And I will certainly check out Ted Dekker, thank you for the tip. :)
Comment: I love the way your mind worked on this swap. . .love the PCs and the correlations you made! Weather here is cool but overcast the last few days - very pleasant but know the hot and humid summer weather will be here soon - ugh. Thanks again for the PCs you sent. . . love this type of swap as it's such fun. Have a great week ~~
Response: So glad you enjoyed the swap...and you are most welcomed! I always love having you as a swapping partner. :)
Comment: Hi Paige! Thank you so much for the lovely PC. You asked about my favorite Kawaii brand and I think it's probably Sanrio. I love chococat and hello kitty but, really, I like all the Sanrio characters. Thank you for the pretty balloon festival PC! :)
Response: Ahhhh....Chococat is one of my favorites (Hello Kitty is okay LOL). Thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Thanks for very nice cards and extras! I enjoyed your opposites and your cute washi taped envelope and Sanrio swap note. My favorite cards are the darling black and white kitty in the basket and the fun hedgehog and moon card!
Response: You are most welcome...and those are my favorite cards as well. :) Glad you enjoyed everything.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year of Swapping.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful and cute deer illustration! Violet is such a beautiful shade of purple.

Response: Glad you liked the card and yes I will let you know about a private swap.
Comment: Love being your partner! Lovely postcard i put it on display for now. And YES! Real stamps! Your blue pc was sent yesterday i apologize again it has been a long holiday. Happy swapping ðŸ’«ðŸ’—ðŸŒº
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the postcard. And I try to always use real stamps. :)
Comment: Paige, thank you so much for a wonderful, generous envelope full of classy goodies. I hope to reciprocate the same level of effort! I especially liked the Giraffe postcard and DIY envelopes. I'm really impressed!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the swap. I look forward to swapping with you again. :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute PC -- I love the cats and the moon! I know what candies you're talking about, but I haven't had one in ages. I think I'm going to have to find some this year! Happy Halloween!
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the card. Hope you have a great Halloween
Comment: Thank you so much for my postcards! I love them, and I especially love the envelope. Unfortunately it was torn in the mail, but thank fully everything was still there and I did some 'first-aid' so I could keep the pretty envie ;)
Response: Wow...I am super glad everything was received...so about the "first-aid". Thank you for being a wonderful swapping partner.

Response: LOL...yes, I liked the zebra you sent me as well...believe it or not I didn't have a "life like" zebra. Thank you for swapping with me and for the great rating.
Comment: yay, thank you very much for the lovely envelope filled with halloweengoodies. I can not wait to start using them all. I loved everything, especially the swap-cards and the wonderful postcards, oh but also the paper and the stickers, and the embellishments! Not to forget the envelope. I had it lying on my desk the whole day, before having the time to open it, and I was so exited to see, what was inside:)
Response: I am super happy that you enjoyed the envie and the Halloween goodies. I had a blast putting it together for you. :)
Comment: Such lovely presentation of this swap! I enjoyed your nice cards and the extra bicycle - thank you! Very cool envelope - the paper and the torn quotes: why have I never thought to tear instead of cut quotes and images??!! You really made me smile with this great swap.
Response: I am happy that you liked everything...and yeah I have used torn papers for a while...they are easier to blend in. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: I received your monsters today and absolutely loved it. This was really fun to create and receive. Your note about no crying in baseball made me giggle. And the Dracula stamp was the perfect touch. Looking forward to more swaps like this. Thanks again.
Response: So happy you enjoyed the monsters, (and the movie reference LOL). Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: Great cards! And very fun envies. Haven't tried the gelli plate (what is that???) or acrylic paints -- think I need to check this out. Thank you!
Response: Wait...what you never heard of Gelli Plates, you are certainly missing out on some awesome (albeit slightly messy) crafting fun. I will PM you info about it. And I am super glad you enjoyed what I sent you. :)
Comment: Thank you for all of the postcards. They are all so fun and unique. I can't even decide which is my favorite. Maybe the Vintage pink floral one or the endless walk with the girl and black crow. Love them all!
Response: You are very welcomed...And yeah I thought you might really like "The Endless Walk" pc. It's one of my favorites. :)
Comment: Beautiful postcard. You put everything on here that I love: elephants, sunflowers and penguins! Cool gelli print as well. I love playing with my gelli plates. Paige, what did you use to seal the images? I like the shiny glossy look. I'm guessing it's gel medium.
Response: Super happy you enjoyed the PC & thank you for the generous rating. The gel medium I used for your PC, I "Collage Gel Medium and Sealer" by Mod-Podge. :)
Comment: Hi Paige :-) Thank you very much for making such a wonderful white on white postcard! The glittery pieces are a good idea to make them stand out while still being white, and you've made a nice composition too. And I also really loved your profile :-) Nice to meet you too!
Response: Nice to "meet" you as well. I am really pleased that you enjoyed the postcard. I actually went to a paint store and got some of their "paint chip cards" in various shades of white to help with the postcard. :)
Comment: Thank you for the adorable "The Night was Hers" postcard! I love how you put it together, each element is so well done - the background, with so much texture and interest, the shadow lettering, the stylish gal with the striking skirt and white outlining. And eyelets, too. This mail art postcard is going into my "favorites" collection. Many thanks for a Great Mail Day!
Response: YAY! I am so happy you liked it. I must admit I had a lot of fun making that card. I got my entire crafting table messy while making it. LOL Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: This arrived today and I so much enjoyed going through everything! Thanks for all of the nice clippings-- way more than 25. These have inspired me to make some ATCs. I love all of the postage stamps you used, too!
Response: Super happy that you are pleased with the swap. And also super pleased that the clippings inspired the "artsy" side of you. (Clipping can become quite addicting. LOL
Comment: Thanks Paige!! Got my images today. Wow! You were stamping overtime! Thanks for all the extras too! Oh, and the envelopes were great. The outside envy was something I'd not thought of before. Very cool!
Response: Yay! I am glad everything arrived safely and that you enjoyed them. :)
Comment: Thanks for two exceptional inspiration cards. I like the sentiments and your gelli prints are stunning. What brand of acrylic paints do you use? Thanks for using the beautiful ocean stationery! Love the envie. Thanks for joining my swap . . . hope to see you in more rounds. <3<3<3
Response: I was thrilled when I saw I was sending to you & I am stoked that you enjoyed them. I can't remember the brand of paint I use (I use several and really don't have a favorite), but when I get home I'll look and PM you the brands. :) Thanks for the super rating.
Comment: Hi Paige! Awww! Thank you for the fun doggie postcard! Dogs get to go to the spa more often than humans at least in my house. LOL. Thanks for the great card and lovely note! It arrived on my birthday and so I'm accepting it as a birthday greeting as well. ;-) XOXO
Response: So glad you enjoyed it. Happy belated birthday. ;)
Comment: Can I give you 99 hearts? I loved this! Everything is so purple, and so fantastic, and so inspired. Much like the man himself. Oh, and the diamonds and pearls sticker sheet.... I melted. Thank you!!!!
Response: Wow 99 â™¥s...LOL I am glad you liked it, I really was/am a Prince fan, so this swap was a lot of "bittersweet" fun for me. Thank You for hosting.
Comment: Hi Paige! What fun! Your postcard brought many smiles to me yesterday. The sweet little (moose?) head is so cute and your lily feet are truly inspired! I've not yet completed mine and yours gave me some good ideas ;+) Thanks for creating something so fun and special for me.
Response: Yay!!! I had such fun creating that. I am super glad you enjoyed it. :)
Comment: Thank you for the nice note and neat postcards (: I absolutely love both the weird ones, although I admit it took me a few minutes to figure out what was so weird about a little girl playing marbles with her kitten. That was certainly stealthfully strange!
Response: LOL...Glad you liked the cards, And yeah the little girl playing with marble looks all sweet, until you actually see what the marbles are. O.o Thank You for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Ok so I have a few guesses for the theme. ðŸ˜ My first guess is some type of vacation theme because of the traveling (rocket), and then the deserts and foods (because when I travel I love to eat :D). My second guess would be a woodland theme because of the Bears and animals but that doesn't count for the sweets. Which makes me want to say is it a Three Little Bears theme? Like Fantastical/FairyTale? Because of the Bears with the food. And then the ghosts can be another type of FairyTale... Are any one of those close? Lol. XD
Response: LOL...no you are not close at all...The 2 additional "big stickers" were supposed to be a hint, but you really have to think "outside" the "sticker box"...the theme is that all the flakes are outlined in "glitter". :)
LOLOL...perhaps I went a little to far outside the box. O.o Thank you for playing though & for the wonderful rating (also from the smiles at your comment. )
Comment: It arrived !!!! What a beautiful postcard Paige - thank you xxx
Response: Holy Moly...I am so glad it finally arrived...I am also glad you liked it. I think between the 2 of us this may very well be the longest swap for me ever LOL. Anyway...thanks again for being awesome and thank for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: What a gorgeous envelope!!!! LOVE the food, LOVE the ghosts!! I actually have the ghost one, which means I can [gasp!] USE the sheet you gave me!!! HAPPY DANCE!! Feeling very special and loved. =D
Response: LOL...aren't we funny creatures? I am the same way about my sticker sheets. I hate opening or using the last one so I always enjoy when I get a duplicate. :) Anyway super glad you liked everything. Thanks for hosting. â™¥
Comment: Such a pretty envelope with so many cool postage stamps and THEN inside, lots and lots of wonderful kawaii! I love it all!!!!!!!!!!! Many many hearts to you!!!!!! Thank you MUCH!! â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Super happy you enjoyed everything. I love that the gentled used Kawaii has a new home to be loved in. :)
Comment: It was absolutely delightful to open the envelope that I received from you today. Honestly! What a delight! I love the stickers, the notecard and the extra goodies ! Thank you for all of the effort that you put into it. Ireally appreciate it!
Peace~ Patty pkpeace
Response: I am glad you enjoyed every thing. I love putting together packages that make my partner smile.
Comment: Beautiful pc. I "blue octopus"? LOL I had to laugh at that one. That is great. I had a lot of fun with this swap. Thank you!
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the swap. I thought it was fun. As for the Blue Octopus...LOL...I have so many octopus in my craft room that it would not matter what color swap we were doing, I could say I see that color octopus. LOL
Comment: Thank you so much, Paige. I love how you packaged everything so cute. Love the envelopes ! Where did you get the cute toast return address label ? Hugs, Kim
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you enjoyed everything. I ordered those, plus a lot of different address labels (Kawaii Style) from an Etsy shop called JJKun. She is awesome. https://www.etsy.com/shop/JJkun?ref=pr_faveshops
Comment: Oh man! What a great package! Not sure I could pick a favorite -- I love the bird egg and butterfly PC, but the "wooden spoons" made me laugh! What a great surprise in my mailbox today! Thank you!!
Response: Oh I am happy that it arrived and your were pleased. Thanks for a wonderful swap. :)
Comment: Paige, oh my gosh, what an amazing job you did on the fish tank! It's so clear that you put a lot of time and effort into it. I have it clipped onto my memo board so that I can show it off. You're very talented and I love it! Thank you so much <3 Also, love the Elvis stamp!
Response: I had a lot of fun making that fish tank for you, so I really appreciate the kind words and wonderful rating. That Elvis stamp is one of only a few I have left that my mother bought way back when they first came out, I knew you liked Elvis so I figured you would like the stamp. :)
Comment: Hi Paige. I always really enjoy your swaps so receiving this one from you was really special. The wrapping was delightful, I really enjoyed reading your question responses, and the awesome doodle on the back of a Orca card was beautiful! Thank you! I hope you do this swap again =o)
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you had fun with this swap. And I am glad you enjoyed what I sent you. :)
Comment: Paige! =) thank you so much for the great envelopes! i have already used a few of them, and thank you for all the extras too! you are very sweet! <3 ps. can you tell me where you got all those cute little papers from for the smaller envelopes? i love them so much!
Response: I make envies all the time...it is like a stress reliever for me. I will PM you about the paper. :) And thanks for the great rating.
Comment: Paige, thankyou for the postcard. My husband didn't want me to collect salt and pepper shakers either. All said and done, they are in bookcases behind glass so the don't get dusty. He has a great time telling everybody that it his job to dust them all and he thinks it is funny. Shirley
Response: Ahhhh....Husband "What cha gonna do? LOL Thank You for the kinda rating and for being a fun swapper.
Comment: OH MY WORD PAIGE ...... WOW .... JUST WOW ..... It felt like my birthday LOL. What attention to detail you put into your swaps. I absolutely love love love each and every thing you sent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so so much xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx There really should be a button on Swapbot for more hearts!!!! I am overwhelmed ... Thank you xxxxx
Response: LOL...I am super stoked that you liked everything. I love putting together packages like this (although I rarely do them any longer). Thank you so very much for the kind words and wonderful rating. I truly appreciate it. â™¥
Comment: I love your take on the D for this swap -- your mind works much better than mine! I also like the PC because night views are always so much prettier than day views of any city! Thanks so much for your great spin on this swap ~~
Response: Ahhh...You're so sweet...thank you for the kind words and I love night views as well. â™¥
Comment: It's funny how different tastes are, I don't like salt water taffy at all. But it sure looks good on the card. :)
Response: That's true...Carrot Cake, Or Strawberry Shortcake always look delish on pictures in such, but IRL, I just can't handle the texture...and Strawberry Shortcake just is mushy. (The doll is adorable though) â™¥
Comment: Thank you for your postcard.
The world is very small : have we common ancestors ?
Response: It is my ex-husband's name, I am actually remarried now, I just really liked the name and never changed mine. Most of his relatives are from Georgia / Alabama area, so I doubt it. But then again like you said it is a small world.
Comment: I think we'd be in close proximity to each other if we were trapped in a library. . . which I wouldn't mind at all. I'd be in the mystery section which would be really close to the thriller section. I also like thrillers and have read many by Stephen King and Dean Koontz but seem to gravitate more to the murder mystery types. Thanks so much for sharing your favorites with me and it's always so good to find another person who is a reader :-) Thanks again and have a great weekend ~~
Response: For whatever reason I haven't been able to find a "who-done-it" type murder mystery that will hold my interest. O.o If you think of one I like, let me know and I'll meet you in your section of the library. :)
Comment: Perfect PC for this swap. . . love the hand coming from the ground - what, no mitten!!! Thanks again and thanks for your patience awaiting my rating ~~
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and remember Gloria, you and I have swapped 50+ times, I knew something was wrong and there was a legit reasons for you not being online so long. You are an awesome swapper (one of my favorite on SB), so I had no problem waiting.
Comment: Woooow! Lady, you really made my day! What a wonderful swap to receive in the mail!! So beautifully decorated, and then I look inside and WOOOOW! So colorful and so well organized! Everything is color coded! Envelopes too! How cool >_< I adore everything you've sent, and taking the time to read my profile and send me something personal, I'm so happy!! I love love LOVE those kokeshi stickers!!!!! ONE MILLION HEARTS!
Response: YAY! I was so hoping you would enjoy everything. I had so much fun making this swap for you. Thanks for having a great profile to work from. And thanks for the "ONE MILLION â™¥s" LOL
Comment: And during "lame duck" terms we get almost 24 months of dumb and dumbers slinging mud at each other. I agree that it is tedious (and when I contemplate it almost unnervingly depressing). I hope we all survive this next one! Thanks for the fun swap and postcard!
Response: Bawahahahaha!!! Truer words have never been spoken (at least not in an election!) Thanks for the rating. :)
Comment: My faves: Zephyr, wooden horse, young child. You came up with a great X, too, lol! Sounds like your Xmas will be great. We're taking our g-sons out to get their pics taken with Santa today! 2 1/2 and 2 weeks old (today) :)
Response: LOL at the "X" postcard...I hope the Santa pictures with Santa turned out wonderful. â™¥
Comment: Hi Paige! I love the pc you sent me!! What an awesome pc - anything to do with books totally makes my day!! Thanks so very much! I haven't read Steven King since my boys were little, the books became too real and scary for me! My bestie loves his books though! LOL! Thanks again for making my day!! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: LOL...Stephen King can be scary but I remember reading a book by Clive Barker, that was so scary I was literally afraid to stop reading. LOL Thanks for being an awesome partner.
Comment: I am so excited to do this Buffy crossword. Squee! If I had to rate my fandoms, Buffy & Angel come out very close to the top (depending on my mood and the day). Thank you for sending it to me. Grr. Arg.
Response: Excellent! I love me some Buffy! I am glad I chose that for you and glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for the wonderful rating. :)

Response: Glad you enjoyed it. And I wish you & your family a Happy Holiday Season as well. :)
Comment: I too think Germany would be a great place to visit. I always watch TV programs showing Germany and Dick wants to do a river cruise and sample some wine and beer. Sounds like fun. Maybe we'll get lucky and win a Lottery!
Response: Oh Wow...I am so glad you finally received this...considering I mailed it back on 10 Oct. O.o The mail system is nuts.
Anyway, yes winning the lottery and taking a carefree trip to Germany would be awesome. Take care and Happy Holidays.
Comment: Paige, this was one of the best sticker swaps I've received. I think I will copy the idea of several little packs of stickers! I would like to respond to your letter of you wouldn't mind :-)
Response: So glad you like everything. I love putting these swaps together. (I really do enjoy my sticker hoard LOL). And you are more than welcome to respond to my letter, that would be lovely. Thanks for the kind rating and words. :)
Comment: This sure was a fun swap (I've never done a sticker slapped PC before). I love all the cute surprises on your card -- esp. that beautiful fox that was front and center. I'll put it on my Christmas card door and think of you all season long. :) <3<3<3

Response: :) I am so glad you enjoyed the PC. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to You! Thanks for the wonderful rating also.
Comment: Wow, this really put me in the Christmas spirit, Paige! Very nicely packaged and love how you put the stickers in their own decorated bags that I can reuse! Thank you so much :)
Response: You are most welcome. I have a super fondness for stickers. And I LOVE organizing them in a special way when I send them off. I am glad you can reuse the little bags. Thanks for being a wonderful partner. :)
Comment: This was a great PC and has found a personal page in my Halloween art journal. I have some vintage looking PC's left from a book I purchased if you would like me to send you one. Thank you for being my partner for this swap!
Response: YAY! I am super glad you enjoyed it. I always enjoy swapping vintage postcards anytime. Just let me know. :)
Comment: Paige~ I absolutely love the PCs you sent for this swap! They are all so fabulous but I love the lamp lights . . . and the girls remind me of what my mom and her two sisters looked like when they were year - really brought a smile to my face because they were of that era and it reminded me of pictures I have of them. Thanks so much for such great PCs :-)
Response: So happy you like everything. I love picking out card to try to please my partners. (And of course your always a favorite!)
Comment: Was very delighted to find Johnny in my mail box! :-) Thank you. And also a bit ironic as well...the card I sent to my partner in this swap was also a black/white of Depp but a different photo! Weird, right?
Comment: Thanks for the fun pc (mmm, ice cream!). I'm also an introvert, and enjoy watching cheesy movies around Halloween (and, well, at any time of the year!). Thanks, too, for hosting this and so many other great swaps! :-D (P.S. Love that you found an ice cream sticker to go with the pc!)
Response: Good to know I am not the only ne that enjoys those campy movie marathons. LOL :) Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Cool aviation museum! We would probably end up there if ever in GA as my husband is a plane nut. When arranging our flights he will often have a backtracking connection, say Seattle or SLC then connect through the East or South if it puts him on an airplane he hasn't flown on yet!
Response: The museum is really nice. There are a lot of hands on exhibits as well. And it is absolutely free. Thanks for the super rating.
Comment: Oh wow!! Everything about this mail made me SMILE! =) From the fun decorated envelope to the super cool sticker sheets and fabulous unique postcards and notecards to the way you wrapped each set of items to make them special little treasures for me to open! Thank you for making this a wonderful HAPPY MAIL day!!!!!!!!! I love it all and appreciate the extras, too â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: It was a super fun swap and I am glad that you hosted it. And I am also glad you enjoyed everything. â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the cool card and fun goodies!! (Love your kitty address label- so cool!) I know exactly what you mean about this time of year; it makes me feel like me again! Everything about it is wonderful!!!!!!!! I'd totally bypass summer if it were possible- lol. Could it have anything to do with us living in the wretched hot SOUTH??? =D
Response: You are very welcome. Glad you liked everything. â™¥ I love my address labels. They are from a shop on etsy. I can send you the can once I get home and double check the spelling. O.o
Comment: Amazing landscape PC you sent to me Paige. What a magnificent view of the Alaska wilderness with the lake, mountains, wild flowers. I can imagine the cool refreshing air. Imagine the colors of the trees in the Autumn. Happy October!
Response: Happy October to you as well! :) So peaceful and beautiful. I am super glad you enjoyed the card.
Comment: Hi Paige! Thanks so much for the awesome very active pc!! Not sure if I am into the rock climbing or white water rafting but love photos of both - with other people in them! LOL! NYC was so much fun and we did not take any cabs - just our little feet and the subways to get us around, oh' and a bus to the airport! LOL! My feet took a few days to forgive me with all that walking but what a great time!! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: LOL...Yeah I am not much into either of those 2 activities myself. Glad your feet finally forgave you. :P
Comment: Oh my goodness Paige such an amazing package and beautifully wrapped and put together, it was a joy just to open it! I don't know where to start I love everything, and the candy I'm excited to try it all :) I would give extra hearts if I could! Have a wonderful weekend, Kate x
Response: You are most welcome. I don't do these type packages often anymore, but Halloween time is just hard for me to pass up. LOL I am super glad you enjoyed everything. :) Thanks for being awesome.
Comment: Wow, thank you Paige for the different & cute Halloween postcard you sent to me. First I've seen of this style Halloween artwork. I like the little witch with attitude! Yes, there is an old graveyard near Windermere. The graveyard is surrounded by wrought iron fence. Happy Halloween!
Response: Oh I am so glad you like her...she is so sweet to me. :) My daughter and I are planning a graveyard walk very soon. Happy Halloween (again)
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful postcard - it's lovely on front and back! Sorry I didn't get you rated right away - this week has been something else! I love walking in cemeteries, too. I've always been attached to cemeteries, ever since I was a little girl and went with my grandparents to water the flowers on family graves. Thanks again!
Response: You are welcome. I am glad you enjoyed it. And I am always glad to meet fellow cemetery lover. Thanks for the lovely story and the rating. :)
Comment: Your delightful, Hallowe'en card arrived with what seemed 1,000 end-of-month bills so we first, were pleased to hear from you, then laughd at the little Hallowe'en Girl! Perfect! Thank you so much, Paige! (old bear waves a paw back!)
Response: Yay, I am glad it arrived safely and you liked it. :) Also glad I could break up 1,000 end of the month bills. O.o
Comment: Thank you Paige for your "Green PC" with the cute animals. The picture reminds me of summers past when my family would visit with my father's family, they owned a farm and we would have a picnic. It was fun to roam around the farm, walk down to the pond and see the turtles pop their heads up. Happy October to you!
Comment: Hello Paige! Thank you for the "Mysterious Halloween Man - Pumpkin Headed Halloween Man" PC you sent me! Searched the subject on internet & found this "Pumpkin-Headed Halloween Man" was a favorite costume in the last century. Looks "creepy" to me. Glad you are looking forward to Oct., & so am I! Soon the cold weather fronts will be reaching us - Ahh, the cooler nights, drier air, being able to take walks. Enjoying these early Halloween swaps - Fun!
Response: You are welcome. The Pumpkin Head guy does look a bit creepy to me as well. o.O
Comment: You made a postcard that fits me perfectly. I also like to do my own thing. I don't like crowds. At social events I find a comfortable place and move from it. lol A page full of hearts for this incredible, beautiful, perfect postcard. ((hugs)) and many thanks
Response: This was a lot of fun for me. I am very glad you like it. It's good to know I am not the only one who is a bit on the "awkward" side. â™¥ Thanks for the super rating.
Comment: Thanks Paige, I think I reversed the groups for my ratings... but same rating so shouldn't matter. I don't think I ever went as an object before, always some type of a character so never had to wear a box or something like that. But nice of your mother to be so creative. Enjoy your weekend!
Response: LOL...the box was hell. But yes very creative. Thanks for the wonderful rating. Happy Halloween. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the delightful "themed swap" postcards. I loved everyone! The note and envie were great, too. Bet that package could have floated over the Straits of Georgia! Much appreciated, Paige!
Response: Glad you enjoyed everything. Thank you for being wonderful. â™¥
Comment: WOW. WoW. wOw. What a package! I opened it with much delight and was actually surprised it came so quick. There isn't one thing I didn't scream for joy over. You really hit this way out of the park and I only hope to make you smile 1/4 of the way you made me. Thanks for an absolutely wonderful swap Paigeâ™¥. xoxo
Response: I love love love making up fun Halloween packages like this. The coffin was a blast. I am super happy you enjoyed everything. :) Thanks for swapping with me. I must admit...the postcards I sent you of the "potions" I liked them so much I got me some as well. O.o Thanks for the awesome rating. â™¥
Comment: Yay I got it, thanks for the elephants!!! :D
Response: You are welcome. I hope the original shows up one day. I totally picture an island somewhere of nothing both lost cards/letters/and packages end up. Kind of like the "Island for Mis-Fit Toys". Are you even old enough to remember that reference? ; )
Comment: This is indeed a very... special postcard ;-) Thanks a lot, also for the great decoration, the stamps and the fully-written back side of the card.
Response: You are most welcome. I always try to "fully-write" on the back. I admire those people that can pen-pal letters...I can't do that, so I make up for it with post cards. LOL. Anyway I am glad you enjoyed everything. â™¥
Comment: Beautiful books! And the tilted one in focus is Algebra! YAY! :) I don't allow myself to look at old books much because I tend to buy old math books. (nothing "valuable" more in the under $10 range - but I love them)
Response: I actually never liked math in school, but it was because of the way it was explained. Once I left school and "played" math games. I liked math better because they were like puzzles. Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Words cannot describe how thrilled I was to see that I hit the envelope lottery and had you for a partner! And you didn't disappoint!! The letter was awesome, I'll treasure it always, the envelope that the envelopes are in (I haven't even opened it yet) is going right in the magic cookbook (osechi nyanko!! I love it!!!) and the lemon themed Rilakkuma... I have a thing for lemons so you really nailed this swap, no matter what the envelopes (which I have absurdly high expectations of) are like. And I was right. How will I ever part with a single one???? I'm gonna go lay them all out so I can bask in the cuteness all at once. Thanks for a wonderful swap. You're the bee's knees. xoxoxo
Response: LOLOL...I had fun with those little envies...and had lots of fun writing that letter. :P But I am super glad you enjoyed all the little envelopes, because I am such a stickler for everything to be just so I bet a threw away 10+ because I didn't like how the corners didn't line up perfectly. Thanks for the awesome rating and I have always wanted to be "bee's knees". My life is complete. â™¥
Comment: You were right! I love the Lion print! I gasped when I saw it! Thank you so much! I really wanted the Jayne hat keychain as well, so I was thrilled to receive it. I can't wait to swap with you again. I hope you come up with another crazy idea soon!
Response: Well I am here to tell you the lion print serious almost did not make it to you. :P And yes, the Jayne Key was adorable, but I have no idea about that show, but the lion was just lovely. (I may still get me one. LOL) And yes I am quite sure I am not through with you or your wonderful felties. I love your work. â™¥
Comment: The Ural owl is adorable, thank you!
So is the pear and worm. :o) At my old house I could listen to owls all night long, but at this apartment I have the windows and sliding glass doors closed most of the time, so I don't get to hear them much. I can't get a cross breeze, so the a/c is always on to keep it comfortable. That's the downside of being on the first floor, on the back side of the building - it's like living in a goldfish bowl. ;oP
Response: I am glad you enjoyed your owl PC. We never see owls where I live...blue jays and cardinals though. Sorry about living in a fishbowl O_o and thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Paige!!! Where do you find these cards? I'm still laughing at this floatable family--- did you happen to notice the face in the cloud formation behind them? They are being frowned on by someone!
Response: I had not noticed the cloud formation...strange. I can't even remember where that card came from LOL...Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Awww, a baby penguin - cute! I can't wait for fall either. (I hate this August humidity, getting out of the shower and not bering able to get dry. Spending 10 minutes under the ceiling fan. And that's with the a/c on! lol Ugh.) (";)
Response: It has actually cooled off a bit down here. Was only 96 the other day. Almost had to get the sweat shirts out of the attic. :P Thanks for being a super swap parter and an awesome person. â™¥
Comment: Beautiful PC and many excellent points. Our views are very similar as you'll see when you get my PC. Thanks for an excellent swap Paige. â™¥
Response: Very glad you enjoyed the PC (was one of my favorites) and I was sincere in all I squeezed onto that card. It meant a lot to be able to write it and to know that it was well received and understood (sometimes thoughts when written take own a whole different meaning). Thanks for a wonderful rating and I look forward to reading your card.
Comment: I love these swaps! The one you sent with the flag is very odd indeed but I love it!! I had to chuckle at the 'bird' one - so odd to see it among all the wild animals of the zoo :-) As always, I really like all the PCs you sent. Have a happy week ~~
Response: The "bird" was weird huh? But it was so colorful and fun that I wanted to include it. I had a of other ones that I could have added, but they weren't nearly as colorful. Anyway thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Paige, the deco taped envelope is gorgeous! So sorry you had to send twice. Thank you so much for the wonderful sticker flakes. I'm super excited about those new year flakes you sent. Be on the lookout for something random from me!
Response: whew....I am super happy it finally made it and you are pleased with everything. That was the craziest mail delivery ever LOL. Thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you for such an adorable postcard. You also have beautiful handwriting. Sorry for the late rating. Today is my first day off in 2 weeks. Which isn't normal by any means. Work has just been rough for me with my new promotion. Anyways, thank you again. I love it!
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the card. Hopefully you will get to relax a little bit. :) Thanks for the lovely rating.
Comment: Thank you for the Herculean effort getting a PC to me! The cool globe and bookshelf PC arrived!
Response: Ha! There for a little while I was thinking I was going to have to buy a plane ticket to NY and hand deliver it. I am glad one of them finally made it. I'll bet one of the others show up when you least expect it. Thanks for being patient. :)
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful abstract ATC you made. I love the bold black line you achieved and the color palette is handsome. I really enjoyed this swap -- I had forgotten how relaxing coloring could be. And it was great to have you as a swap partner again! <3<3
Response: Yes, I had fun with this swap...reminded me of being a child. I am glad you liked it. :)
Comment: Pretty PC. . . thank you. It's been hot and humid here so it's been rather oppressive but we just had some rain so it at least washed out the air a bit. It's supposed to stay in the los 90s this week and the humidity will be high so I'm on 'indoor recess' as I don't go out when it's so hot and humid -- my breathing just can't take it! How fun it must be for you to have a little one with you but can imagine it does take some energy even at that age! Thanks again for the pretty butterfly PC ~~
Response: LOL... typically stay indoors during spring and summer. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: Great card! I love Vanilla ice cream probably my favorite now ... but too plain when I was a child -- more the choc chip mint or peppermint stick, of course back then these were the kid choices not the huge range we have today. Thanks & Happy Swapping!
Response: Whoot Whoot....Hooray for Vanilla Ice Cream! LOL...I must admit that was a neat card. I actually am lucky enough to have 2 of that card. It's so cute, I am thinking about framing it. I am glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the assortment of cards. I can't wait to use them. Thanks for the lovely note along with them. I love when I have a new partner as well. Isn't swap bot awesome?? Have a wonderful week.
Response: You're welcome :) & yes I agree I love swapping with new partners. I am glad you like the cards. You have a great week as well.
Comment: OMG!!! I love the print!!! Maleficent is too cute. Now to find a place to put her. I'm off to eBay to look for a frame. She definitely is going on my wall. You did a fantastic job!!! Thanks a million!!!
Response: whew...*exhale* I am really glad you like her. I knew I wanted to get something from that artist, but I couldn't decide what. Thanks (as always) for swapping with me. You're fantastic.
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the wonderful stickers!!! I even love the envelopes you put them in(: And this washi tape is the cutest!!! Tarepanda is like one of my favoritest things ever! Thank you so much!!!!
Response: Oh I am so happy you enjoyed everything. It was a lot of fun to put together. I love stickers, so I buy them all the time. And I always buy 2 of everything. When I get home, I automatically take 1 sheet and cut the stickers and put them into a jar of loose stickers, and then put the open sheet into a file for full sheets, then I keep another file for unopened stickers. (I'm pitiful huh?) LOL Thanks for the awesome rating.
Comment: Thank you for the great card, what a great choice "embrace your inner geekiness day"! I love the card <3 I love RPGs too, need more hours in the evening so I can get all my snail-mailing done and play my game!!!
Response: LOL...I am a geek (I even have a door inside my craft room that is painted like a Tardis, that leads to a giant walk in closet..."Bigger on the Inside". You can see it on my Flickr from my profile, if you ever get so inclined.)LOL. Anyway thanks bunches for the wonderful rating. :)
Comment: I love your postcard your sent! Thanks! I also thought the laminating was a good idea to preserve the cards in the mail! Thanks for checking in to make sure I had received your postcard. Sorry for the delayed rating. <3
Response: Whew...I was so worried about that darn card. I think I started over 20 times before I actually finished one I liked enough to actually send. Thank you so much for the lovely rating.
Comment: Yes, it's been ages since we've been partners. I'm swapping less now, with school and work taking much of my time, and occasionally cooking a good meal. I would love to visit Dublin one day. Thanks for the great postcard.
Response: Thank You so much for the kind rating. One day may we both will be able to visit Ireland!
Comment: Maybe the computer keeps matching us because it knows how much I love receiving cards and envelopes from you! The selection of postcards was great -- thank you! I can't decide which is my favourite -- I like them all! And I love the story about you getting ready for work .... on Saturday ......:-)
Response: So glad you liked the PCs. It was fun spelling out your name with the double Ts. :) Thanks for being great!
Comment: Fandom hug! Thank you SO much for this awesome PC. It looks like the mailing machines loved it, too: it got a bit eaten coming here, but hey.... that's what happens traveling through time and space. :P
Response: Crazy Mailing Machines...Where's The Doctor when we need him? Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: I got your resend :-) Maybe one day I'll get the first one you sent! I love this card, but I hated side saddles. I only rode in one once and just didn't feel 'seated' on that huge animal. I did have some scary times on horses, especially going down the side of a mountain trail in Colorado - I just closed my eyes and hung on putting all my faith in the horse I was on -- he did good :-) Thanks again for the great PC and have a safe & happy 4th ~~
Response: I've never ridden side saddled...but after my last experience, I don't plan to ride any saddled. LOL Thanks for being awesome. â™¥
Comment: Wow, I love the postcard!
I think your lie is that you have twin daughters? I'm really curious to know if I'm right...
Thank you very much for the beautiful card!
Best wishes, Henny
Response: Nope. I actually have twin daughters. They are 26 years old. My lie is that I am "left handed". LOL I am totally right handed. My writing has always been at an odd angle and I've been asked before if I was left handed, so I figured that would be a good one to try. Thank You for awesome rating. :)
Comment: Oh oh Paige, how did you spoil me again with such an amazing artwork! Only two stones were missing, but I'm sure I have sortlike in my hobbybox. The card is really awesome, I'm sure I can learn a lot from you :-) Many thanks!
Response: Awww...you are super sweet. I am really glad you like the postcard. I am also glad that it survived the travel, -2 stones that is). Thank you for the kind rating. :)
Comment: Great PC for this swap! I understand completely about the summertime and human transportation. . . it's been horribly hot and humid here (although not quite as hot as where you are) and it is miserable. . . and expected to go on and on. Usually we get this type of heat and humidity starting in mid-July through early September so it's early this year and it has a huge effect on my due to my breathing issues. Thanks again for the great PC for this swap. Stay cool and have a wonderful week ~~
Response: That is one of my favorite cards. Just something about the way the lady and the bird looks as they begrudgingly walk along. Sorry about your breathing issues with the heat/humidity. I am grateful I do not have to deal with that...although until I cut my hair I looked as if I had a lions man on my head. :P
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful notecard which arrived in a envie covered in birdcages. Perfect! The postcards themselves made me smile--great choices and a cute extra, too!
I hope you had a good meal out with your 9 mo old (Lily the adorable?) and the humidity has eased for you.
Response: I am extra glad the package made you smile. Thanks for being such an awesome swapping partner over the years. :)
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful tiger and her little cub! How I would like to see a real tiger! Like yourself, I'm overcome and angry over the state of the world's endangered. Only, 3,200 tigers left, just a horrible state of affairs.
Response: It is very sad isn't it? And such a beautiful creature. But if we live in a world where some people ruthlessly kill people without a thought, killing helpless animals, doesn't even make them bat an eye. :( Thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: What a beautiful old post office! Love your three facts- I remember Romper Room! I totally agree with number 2 :D and don't you hate the feeling of fish nibbling on your legs...ack! Thanks for a fun swap!
Response: Oh wow...I didn't know anyone else that remembered Romper Room. LOL I was most excited we when got to get out the romper stompers and march around. :) My time sure does fly. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: The swap robot obviously thinks we belong together ...... Thank you for the profile specific postcard. I grew up in Chicago (came to the UK when I was 19) and the schoolhouse reminds me of the one I used to visit in downstate Illinois at New Salem.
Response: YAY!.....I just had a deep down feeling I chose correctly. :) Glad you liked it.
Response: I love that graveyard postcard. I am glad that liked it as well. I promise I am not morbid or anything like that, but I do enjoy walking through cemeteries. Thanks for the wonderful rating. :)
Comment: Don't be daft, Paige -- of course I'm not tired of getting post from you! I LOVE swapping with you!!! And that's a really cool alien transport bus postcard - thank you.
Response: "Daft"...LOL, now that is a word that we Americans don't often hear. Reminds me of watching Doctor Who (Which is an awesome thing). Anyway you are welcome for the Alien Transport Bus, I thought it was a neat postcard and as always thank you for being an awesome swap partner. :)
Comment: Thanks for the awesome Halloween card!! I bet the costumes for the babies will be adorable!
Hopefully you are able to find a cool spot to settle into for a bit. I know I will be looking for one this summer here!
Response: Glad you liked the card. :) And yes Halloween baby costumes are soooo adorable. We have a nice shade tree in our back yard, (we put a swing in it for the babies), but still Georgia humidity sucks LOL...so even in the shade it's not much fun. Thanks for being a wonderful partner. :)
Comment: Thank you very much for the adorable panda bear pc. I do love them! Everything's ok here, thanks. Daughter finished her RN course specializing in the OR. We're proud of her as she worked 8 hrs/day then 4 hrs hmwork after that. I totally love Lily..beautiful girl! (hugs)
Response: It's nice to hear things are going well for you. So happy for your daughter...it's hard to believe how fast they grow up isn't it. I am glad you liked the PC. :)
Comment: Paige ~ As always, great PCs. . .I've been to the Maisel's Indian Trading Post so it brought back good memories of my time spent in Albuquerque. I really liked your envie . . .and your notecard is so neat :-) Thanks again and hope to see you again in future swaps ~
Response: Wow...I was archiving swaps, and saw that I never responded to this. (How rude am I). Thank You very much for promptly rating me (as always). And I am glad that the PCs could bring back good memories for you. :)
Comment: A. great selection of cards, thank you! :o)
Utah is a state I would love to travel through, specifically because of their many cool rock formations. And I am the perfect person to receive "All the animals in the zoo". ;oP
I think these mystery pc swaps are fun!
Comment: Thank you Paige for the beautiful postcard view of the yellow Seahorse! Also the PC makes me feel nostalgic as my late husband & I would make trips to the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. Fun times! Saving this PC as reference as I want to make some ATC's of aquatic creatures. Happy May!
Response: I am glad that this postcard brought happy memories for you. :)
Comment: Paige -- Thanks for sharing your favorite board games. Monopoly is also one of mine but I've finished lots of them. . . of course I was playing it back in the late 50s and 60s with my older brother and we sometimes left the board up on the cardtable and played the same game for 2 or more days. . . we were diehard players! I also played Chinese Checkers as a kid and actually have the metal board with sliding openings and original marbles and it must be close to 55 years old - I don't know how it's lasted all these years but it was just something my mom did and then I became its 'keeper'. I've never played Scattergories but understand about a game ending in arguments - that happened at our house with Scrabble! Thanks again for sharing and have a wonderful weekend ~~
Response: The Chinese Checker's game sounds fascinating. but I love "vintage" stuff anyway. (Of course I am vintage...LOL) Thanks for the wonderful comment
Comment: Beautiful PC. . . I do enjoy ballets although I haven't been to one in years. The stories they tell, the strength and passion of the dancers, and the artistry is just beautiful. We have had rain every few days which is welcome but know some areas have been drenched. . .spring can be as bad for some as winter is for others as summer is for others and fall is for others -- something for everyone during the year :-) Hopefully you'll dry out soon! Thanks again for the lovely PC and have a great weekend ~~
Response: I have not been to a ballet in years either. In fact the last musical of any sorts that I went to was "Cats" and that was back in the 80's. O_o LOL
Comment: Hey Paige! You and I seemed to be on the same track for this one. Mine showed a road running by a very blue lake with a very yellow car half submerged. My partner said it could probably qualify as a boat too! LOL
Love this series, I have my "bus fare" ready.
Response: LOL...I hope it quite amusing that you said we were on the same "track" for a series about "transportation". Anyway thanks for the kind rating. I like series swaps as well...and any suggestions are most welcome. :)
Comment: Thank you for the pretty envies - did you make the paper for the smaller ones with your gelli plate? You have me stumped on the PC! I own an orange tabby, but the scarf reminds me that you bought one at the Peach Blossom Festival to keep warm the day we met. Am I even close? lol Thanks for a lovely swap, dear friend! Hugs, T (";) UPDATE: I had completely forgotten about the scarf bag! lol
Response: Yes I made the paper for the small envies with my gelli plate :) The scarf PC is the one the reminded me of you, because of the scarf bag you made me we when met. I still have that scarf...it is ocean green and I think of you everytime I see it. :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the great PCs. . . all of them are so unique and ones I've never seen :-) When it comes to partnering, it seems I get the same partners for 2 or 3 swaps in different groups at the same time and then I don't hear from them for awhile -- must be the rotation! Spring is definitely here and we've had beautiful weather. Like you, I love spring but summer can be wicked when it gets hot and the humidity spikes up. . . then I stay indoors as much as possible! Thanks again for the great PCs and hope you're doing great :-)
Response: YAY...I am glad I was able to send you some cards that you've never seen. I think I need to start making a list of what I've sent whom O_o. LOL...I am beginning to doubt my brain's ability at times. Thanks for your kindness as always. See you soon. â™¥
Comment: This postcard is so cute, and I can picture you sifting through your stash looking for a ship. ;oP I love those ship and anchor stickers on the back, too!
In reply to your questions, yes I would love to have the pc that your cat bit (a real conversation piece!), and no, haven't been getting many photos from the chicken. :o( It's funny you ask, because there's a lot of chicken love going on among the women in my family
(those of us in the 'clan'). ;oP
Response: Thanks for the rating...and I will pop the cat bitten PC in the mail today. :) I was not very happy when I saw what Willow had done, but at least now it will still be going to a good home. LOL <3
Comment: Another great card Paige! My son says blah, blah, blah a bit as well. 8-months is a terrific age. My husband and I keep wondering where our baby went when we look at this big boy who doesn't stop moving or growing! ETA Our boy is nearly 8 years...I mentioned 8 months since you said that was your gd's age. Heehee.
Response: Oh 8 months is indeed a terrific month, my grand daughter is also 8 months. :) Enjoy it while you can...Time will fly. Thanks as always for being a wonderful partner..
Comment: Yummy yummy delicous recipe and pc cards. That peach pie sounds yummy. As always I ate to many chocolate eggs at Easter so I have to watch my weight again ;-) I like the chili pepper card. It's a fun spice. I love spicy food but sometime it can be too hot. I hope you had a wonderful Easter as well. I really love your stamps !!
Response: YAY! Glad you enjoyed everything. :) Thanks for being a great swap partner.
Comment: This is so weird! I got myself this collection off Zazzle with the intention of getting them stamped and sent back to me in Return to sender swaps. Well needless to say my RTS pile got larger and larger and these have ended up near the bottom. So excited to have received one that is stamped. Thanks for sending! :D
Response: Yay! I am super glad I could help you out! :)
Comment: Thanks Paige, for your yellow clad lady dropping her mail in the post box. Good postage too... And thanks again for hosting this fabulous swap. (thinking of you and hoping your life settles down soon)
Response: You are most welcome. LOL...I really am glad you liked the card...and thanks for the well wishes. Finally things are calmed. :)
Comment: Ha! You managed to find one! I sent my partner a postcard of the steam clock in Gastown, a tourist attraction in downtown Vancouver. My "X" was the roman numeral for 10 on the clock!
Thanks again for hosting this fun & challenging series!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the "X" card. My partner actually had a card with the word "Xenozoic" on it LOL she was very excited to be able to use it. :)
Comment: Hi Paige. I love, love, love the window pc with the vivid colors of the blue shutters, the wall and the flower box. I don't have too many window pcs, but I have a desire to build a bigger collection. I enjoyed reading your message and the presentation of your card is darling. For making this an extra special pc, you've earned your heart.
Response: Well after reading your profile I had a sneaking suspicion you would like that card. I am super glad I was right. :) Thank you so much for the kind rating.
Comment: Thanks so much for the pretty PC, Paige! I can see why you think it's pretty, and your description of what you believe she is feeling makes it even prettier. I love the colors in it, too. Thanks for hosting! :)
Response: You are very welcome for the card and for the description...she seemed to just speak to me. : ) I am glad you enjoyed her. Thank You as well.
Comment: Hello Paige & I enjoyed looking at the bird on your PC & reading about you liking Blue Jays, better than big birds I saw fly over here in Clermont, FL, vultures! When it gets warmer we will see the cranes, egrets. Fun PC swap!
Response: So glad you enjoyed the bird PC. Cranes are pretty cool birds, we like watching for those when we go to Jekyll Island. :)
Comment: Hi Paige, Good one! I recognized UGA right away! I've had a UGA card, a blank one, in my "animals" stash for a long time. I've got my X, Y and Z already to go.... Thanks again for a great series!
Response: Go DAWGS! LOL. I just finished up my "X" PC and in fact got partnered with you again. LOL...X was a bit tough for me. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: I absolutely love the old Hawaii map card, that one is definitely staying with me! :o) All your cards fit their category well, including the extras, and I agree the Puffin Football pc belongs in the 'boring' category (I like real football, not soccer, lol). I didn't know we could get swap-bot pc's. Either that, or I did and forgot - it's hard to tell these days. ;oP I love the way you decorated the envelope, too!
Response: I agree about soccer, I find it extremely boring (both the sport and the postcard). Glad you enjoyed the other choices, and (no joking), if you would like some more Ernie Envie PC's let me know and I will send you some. I have quit a bunch. Hugs!
Comment: Oh my goodness, while in Florida I got hooked on Little Debbie's glazed donuts. lol And in school, literature was my favourite subject too (I barely passed the dreaded calculus). If only all courses were as much fun as your "Horror in Literature"! Thx for the fun PC! Hugs, T (";)
Response: Best class ever!!! Glad you enjoyed the Little Debbies card, sadly they are very addicting. Hugs!
Comment: Sorry you hate your car! I have a dark red 2010 CR-V, very comfortable, ergonomic, very roomy cargo space, fully loaded, super reliable, good mpg (have gotten 27-29) on highways BUT it's so boring...I am tired of it. My daughter gets her license next year and I'm giving it to her so I can get something more exciting. LOL
Response: My girls are way past the age of 16, but I am thinking about trading in my car...I really would like a small cross over. :) Good luck on your exciting vehicle pursuit.
Comment: Thank you Paige for the multi-view postcard showing the state of North Carolina. Wow, you lived in Hickory, NC Paige. NC is state where my brother & I went to University - my brother - UNC - Chapel Hill, Me - UNC - Greensboro. Great places to get college degrees. I have fond memories. My late father was born in Tryon, NC. Fun swap!
Response: Thank You for the rating Kathryn. I hope you are doing wonderful. : )
Comment: Thank you so much for the Cherokee Rose PC. . . goes right into my collection :-) I understand about the magnolia because they look similar and the magnolia is so prevalent in Georgia. . .but I'm so happy to get the Cherokee Rose -- thank you, thank you, thank you :-)
Response: Whoooo Whooo.....so glad you liked it. I was going to mail it to you regardless, but when I got partnered with you for this swap, I knew what I was going to send.!
Comment: Love the PC. . .and this was a neat swap. I was brought up an AF brat and worked on an AF base for over half of my career so I'm a very patriotic gal :-) Loved your 'quote' which is the chorus from a song written by George M. Cohan - it's a great marching song in parades on July 4th. . . I remember it well from my marching band days in high school. Thanks for the great flag PC and for reminding me of a song I haven't thought of in many years ~~
Response: I was in the band in school also, but on the dance squad. I learned the song In elementary school for a play I was in LOL. Thanks (as always) for the rating. :)
Comment: A much-belated but heartfelt thank you for a great postcard you sent me last year. The card had two hands writing to each other - I loved it!! Sorry I was unable to rate you promptly. I also adored the little foil kitty stickers you added - super cute! I said hello to Hickory for you when I passed through several months ago (before all this ice arrived :-). Thank you!! â¤
Comment: Paige, such a nice job. Wow! I wish you could be here to celebrate Valentine's with me. It is my birthday and DH and I are hosting a get together for family and friends. I don't call it a party because that sounds like I want gifts. All I want is those I care about around me and lots of good things to munch.
Response: I know several people who's birthday falls on Valentine's Day...that's a great day to be born on...so Happy Birthday. :)
Comment: Nice to hear from you again! I haven't had many ideas for PC swaps either but I'll try to come up with something! Thanks for the card and I wouldn't' have found the Q if you hadn't given me a hint :)
Response: LOL...Glad the hint helped you find the "Queen". : )
Comment: Love, love, love the Valentine's Day postcard you sent me Paige! The Valentine's Day PC swaps I look forward to every year since I've been on Swap - Bot. Fun to be your PC swap for this loving thankfulness holiday!
Response: I am super happy you liked the Valentine's PC. I gotthose a while back. So glittery, if they come in the mail with bills it even makes them sparkly. LOL
Comment: I never get tired of my long-time partner :-) Of course I could say the same to you. . . think I have a PC ready to go out to you tomorrow. Thanks for the great PCs. . . I, too, am reminded of the song when I saw the Edmund Fitzgerald, but I cracked up at the dog one. . . as yucky as it may seem, I'm afraid it's accurate (and I own a dog so I know and I'm very aware of where they put their noses and mouths!). Thanks again for the great PCs and you'll see me soon at your mailbox ~~
Response: I am so glad you liked the choices I made for you. And know that Edmund Fitzgerald song is running through my mind...AGAIN. LOL
Comment: Onions! LOL That is funny because when we lived near the OR/WA border there was a HUGE onion processing plant near my husband's job and it stunk so bad!! LOL I didn't know onions were a big thing in the south!
Response: LOL...Yep there is actually a city down here called Vidalia...after the Vidalia Onion. I do not eat raw onions of any type, however; when Vidalia onions are cooked (or made into onion rings)...MMMMMM MMMM!!! : )
Comment: Love, love, love this PC - thank you so much!! I love getting PCs from you but I know what you mean about feeling like you're sending to the same person all the time -- happens to me too! It's always hard to lose a pet because they become such a big part of our lives but alas it seems to happen more than we'd like. Thanks again for the great PC. . . and I'm sure we'll meet again either at your mailbox or mine :-)
Response: Yeah, that PC was one of my favorites (although I tend to say that about many of my cards). And yes I am sure we will meet again...LOL Take Care
Comment: I truly love the bird watching pc. The pc is so colorful and I love the close up view. It was nice that you shared how Taco Kitty chose you, it is so touching. I still miss my Patches. I love how you decorated the pc with a trail of paw prints. For making this an extra special swap for me, you've earned your heart. Wishing you an overflowing mailbox of many surprises and many new s-b friendships.
Response: So glad you enjoyed the pc. And yes it was tough losing Taco...Sorry about Patches. Happy 2015 and Take Care. :)
Comment: I LOVE this pc of the little frogs - thank you! :o) And it wasn't a stretch by any means. This is from the 'red-eyed tree frog.org' information page: "They are bright lime green with blue and yellow flank stripes". It looks lime green to you, and looks lime green to me, because it IS lime green! ;oP
Response: It's funny we were in a pet store the other day and the little window frogs (that's what my DH calls them) were selling for $10.00/frog. I could make a freaking killing. But I would be sad cause I know why they would be bought so I told DH that he had to leave my Window Frogs on the Windows. LOL Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: I love magnolia blossoms - we have magnolia trees here in Virginia. The odd thing is that the magnolia is not the Georgia state flower although they grow in abundance there. . . the state flower of Georgia is actually the Cherokee Rose, which is also white and a very beautiful flower and reminds me of a magnolia. Although it won't go into my 'state' collection, I love the PC and it certainly fits the swap perfectly :-)
Response: As soon as I dropped the card in the mail box I realized that....I just saw the card and then saw your name and got all excited LOL. At any rate...I am glad you enjoyed the card. I am sure I can find a true Georgia Flower Card. They grow wild all over the place down here. Thanks for being awesome!!!
Comment: Ohhh! Everything looks sooo good! I can't wait until Christmas morning. I am so thrilled to be able to do this swap with you. Grayson also says thank you for the card & $ you sent. Take care!!
Response: I still can't believe you are going to wait LOL....you could at least open 1 a night for 12 days till Christmas. ; )
Comment: What a pretty Christmas and Happy New Year PC, dear P! I got a kick out of your 52F "brrrr" - we won't see the fifties again until about April. lol Have a warm and wonderful Christmas with your girls and, of course, wee Lillian Rose. You probably have way too many gifts for her already, right?!!! Lots of hugs, T (";)
Response: LOL....52F is cold for us, but right now it is 28F... : ) Thanks for the great rating and I hope you and your family have a beautiful Christmas!
Comment: Thank you Paige for the excellent postcard of "The Hobbit" paperback book cover for "H" postcard swap! You brightened my day as I love J. R. R. Tolkien's books. Here I go dating myself ... I remember when a BF suggested I read "The Hobbit" in mid 1970's. Enjoyed the book & read the Trilogy books. My late husband was a big Tolkien fan. We had discussions about the books. It was a big thrill when the books were made into block buster movies. Bought a collection of all the WETA Tolkien movies & now I'm buying the 3 "Hobbit" movies as they are released. My niece & nephews love the Tolkien books & moves. Its fun to share with them. Happy Thanksgiving to you Paige & your family!
Response: I love the Hobbit as well. I read it also (in the 80's though). LOL...I even remember the cartoon that came out many many years ago. Anyway thank you for the wonderful rating and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well. : )
Comment: Pitiful wrapping? Everything is absolutely perfect! Thank you so much, Wow just, wow!!
Response: Yes pitiful wrapping...LOL. I love crafting and making things, but OMG...me and wrapping just don't get along. Anyway I am very pleased that you enjoyed the package and everything. Thank you for being such a beautiful person and friend. And thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful packages you sent to me! You really are wonderful! I love the glasses, the nail board and the washi tape! You went above and beyond what you needed to do and you really did make my day! Thank you!! :))
Response: YAY! I am so happy you enjoyed everything. It was a fun swap. : ) Thank you for the generous rating, so kind. : )
Comment: Paige - What a pretty magnolia! They are a beautiful flower. I, too, like gardenias and planted two this year in big pots - they smell so wonderful. Thanks again for the pretty PC. . . and it was good to see you at my mailbox again ~~
Response: You are very welcome! And I agree gardenias are awesome! Take care and thanks for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Georgia cotton card! I have an "Alabama White Gold" that's been in my collection for awhile, but this card is new to me and I do love it. I remember stopping to snap a few pictures of a cotton field somewhere in North Carolina a few years ago, which was fun because cotton fields are definitely not something I see up here. :-) Thanks so much for doing this swap with me!!
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you liked it. Cotton blows all over down here. : ) Thanks for the wonderful rating
Comment: Thanks for another great card... I love "Still Life with Sunflowers"!! I've noticed that Swap-bot will often seem to assign the same partner (either sending, receiving, or both) for several times "in a row"; I'm very grateful to have received 3 great swaps from you now! :-)
Response: LOL....Well I am glad you haven't tired of me yet. : ) And once again thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Hello Paige! Love the Glitter Halloween girl, black cat & pumpkin postcard you sent to me for the swap! And I like the roaring tiger circus postage stamp. Glad this is your favorite time of the year too! Love the colors of Autumn, Halloween. St. Augustine, FL, a place you can have a haunted tour by night. My family has visited there, though I 've not been there. Fun swap!
Response: St Augustine was fantastic! We can't wait to go back. I am really glad you liked the card.
Comment: I love the postcards you sent (and they were so nicely presented!). My favorite is the seed label, but I also love the Audrey card, the St. Augustine card (I have a lot of vintage postcards from St. Augustine but this is only my 2nd modern one; it would great to someday see it in person!). And the infinity card is, of course, awesome. :-) Thank you so much!
Response: YAY! I had hoped you would like the cards I chose for you. I had been hanging on the the Udrey card until the right person came along. : ) I am glad it has a good home.
Comment: What a fun PC! (I counted 12 stickers - I guess you were making up for all those swaps where you weren't allowed to sticker slap?! lol) Thank you dearie G! (";)
Response: Wow...that reached you super fast. And yes, I figured since stickers were allowed I'd take advantage of it. I absolutely LOVE the cat stamp, that was sent to me by the awesome @piratecaptainmo . Anywa thanks for the wonderful rating and for being wonderful yourself! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC it is cute =D Thanks for the extras too. I hope you like the one i made for you as well. Anytime you want to do a pvt swap again I'm game. Have a wonderful day and happy swapping!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the card...like I said it has been a long time since I was able to get out all my drawing items. So thank you for allowing me to think outside my comfort zone a bit. : )
Comment: Thank you so much for the frankenstein postcard. :) Love the postage stamps you used.
Response: That reached you super duper fast. : ) I am so happy you liked it. And I have in my possession **ONLY** 3 of those stamps. I received them in a swap. I been saving them, but I knew that you would enjoy one. Especially since it match the monster. : ) Thanks for being an awesome partner.
Comment: Cute cat postcard-reminds me of the style of Joan Miro. Enjoyed your little letter about your cat. I can relate to all of it-my cats jump on my projects all the time. One cat loves to chew on my double sided tape that is in a desk dispenser and the black one loves to send her black hairs under mailing tape-such precious companions-you are right! Thanks for sharing
Response: LOL...Yep Cat lover around the world can surely relate! Thank you for the great rating and the lovely message. : )
Comment: Love my witch PC. It's going to go out as part of my Halloween decor! I'm jealous of your ephemera though!
Response: LOL...Glad you love you witch! Most of the ephemera is cut and altered from old pieces of Halloween scrapbook paper...Plus I love using my Gelli Plate...I am a Gelli Plating fool lately. Thank You for the great rating. : )
Comment: I loved my package! Thank you so much. I'm new to swapping, but am quickly learning and really enjoyed this. I had never made envelopes from scratch before this and I look forward to making more! Thank you again I loved the stickers too! Happy swapping! ;)
Response: I love making envelopes...I save all kinds of paper to make them. I was in a store this morning and they had old calendars on sale for $1.79, I scooped them up just to make envelopes out of. : ) Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Response: You are really welcomed. I was telling my other partner I received those 2 cards from a very close friend on SB. I thought they were so cute and whimsical and thought they would be fun for this swap. And I must be honest I was a bit nervous because they are a bit "untraditional", but I am glad you enjoyed it. And thank you for the 5â™¥.
Comment: Thank you for one of the oddest, if not The Oddest, postcards ever. I don't have many weird ones in my collection so this bee beard is a treasure. LOL Glad to know another American HS fan. Most of my friends don't like it. LOL
Response: LOL...I thought it was pretty odd myself, I have several more along that line of weirdness...if you ever want another one. And even odder that it reached my partner in Canada before it reached you in the U.S. Anyway thanks for the great rating. :)
Comment: Thank you for the ellen clapsaddle postcard. The stickers on the back are cute! oops...forgot the heart. Thanks again Paige. :)
Response: You are very welcome! :) LOL...it is okay that you didn't give a â™¥ at first. I would much rather have a comment like you left than a â™¥ anyway. Either way (with or without a heart), I am really glad you enjoyed the card. : )
Comment: What a pretty postcard! I love the tone on tone/texture on texture of all the red... thanks for swapping!
Hope your granddaughter has come/comes very soon, and you can revel in all the baby delight...
Response: I am really glad you enjoyed the PC. It was fun to make and yep...Lillian Rose has now arrived. : ) Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Muahhaha, so apropos to give us a scare! So gorgeous, I hardly have words to describe! It would have been heartbreaking for this swap to go missing! Every detail is so thoughtful. This warrants Many hearts! Thanks so much for putting your heart into this swap, it's truly Amazing! BIG Smile! â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: OMG I am soooo glad it arrived! And I am even more glad you liked it. Gelli Plates are beyond fun....(they are extremely messing though...or perhaps I am just messy). Thank you for the absolutely terrific rating. :)
Comment: hello Paige!
Thanks for your lovely postcard. And I need the quote on it: after a couple of very hot weeks (too hot for the Dutch) it's raining often. So I try to laugh again when me and my mail are drying again!
Response: LOL...I hope your weather is back to normal for you. We could truly use the rain down my way. Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: I didn't realize you were sending to me for this swap - the purse envie is really cute! (At least, I hope is it supposed to be a purse. lol) Glad the girls are all doing well. Thx for the Christmas stamps! Hugs, T *** P.S. I WILL have your Halloween PC mailed tomorrow for sure. Maybe. (";)
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the envie and the stamps! And yes it was a purse/handbag. LOL Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: This is the most awesome "postcard" I have ever received! It was HUGE! And so cool with Dr. Who! My teen daughter was with me when I picked it up and she was a bit flabbergasted you can mail something like this. LOL What fun! Thanks for making this a truly fun swap for me. I need to step up my game! LOL Have a great day!
Response: LOL....I am glad you and your daughter enjoyed it. I really did have fun with this swap. : )
Thank for the great rating!
Comment: It was really interesting reading your list! I also want to thank you for being so thoughtful - the stamps, the envelope, the note you wrote, the Johnny Depp postcard!! I loved everything. Thanks :)
Response: Thank You so much for the great rating. I did enjoy answering the questions. Oh and you are welcome for the JD PC...he is quite delicious. LOL
Comment: You said I must be tired of being partnered with you? what?!?!?! I think I may have been a nice person at some point and forgotten because i can't think of how I deserve the honor of getting your swaps! thank you!
Response: LOL...You are funny. I had a lot of fun making these Zetti ATCs. I am glad you enjoyed it. : ) Thank You for the wonderful rating. (although you did give me my 666th 5. O_o
Comment: Hey Paige! I'm glad you joined the swap too! Your cards are awesome! Thank you! I love them all!:)
Response: Oh Wow...I was a nervous wreck with those cards LOL. I thought they turned out pretty good as well, but I was still nervous. Thank you so much for the wonderful rating and for liking the cards. : )
Comment: Hahahahahahahahahaha! (That was my reaction to the last line of your ode. I may have even spit. It was perfect.) These are great!!! You did really well! I think our first attempts were successful... We both came up with something... And both decided other platforms are more our style! :-) we did good!
Thank you for the fun experience and for these nice zines :-)
Response: LOL...I am glad you enjoyed the ode I kinda thought you would ;) Thanks for the opportunity to try a zine...I won't be doing them again. O_o Thanks also for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Thanks, Paige, for the great card! It's a neat picture, a little scary. I think it's funny that we both used postage stamps of our respective states. It's starting to get pretty hot and humid here, but not as bad as you have now. I'm ready to go to the mountains!
Response: You are welcome. I am glad you enjoyed the card. And yes, pretty cool about the stamps. : ) Thank You for the great rating.
Comment: It came! Yay! VERY interesting, Paige. I have no idea how you did that. I like it a lot!!! Thank you so much! BTW - I don't think stamp carving is for me, either. lol
Response: You are far more generous than I think I deserve my friend. I tried really hard on the stamp...the background I made using my gelli plate (which is FUN), the stamp was difficult for me...LOL Thank you for the great rating....you are too kind.
Comment: Hi Paige! Today I received the multi-view postcard you sent me of Georgia! Thank you so much! I really enjoyed reading your note on the postcard! If you ever come across another map card of Georgia, please let me know! I'd love to swap for it! You're right, being a single parent can be tough at times, but also very rewarding! I give you so much props for raising 3 girls on your own! â™¥ Thank you again for the beautiful postcard!
Response: Thank you for the 5â™¥...I appreciate it very much. And yes hopefully I will come across some GA state cards again real soon and when I do I will pop one in the mail. : )
Comment: Your tape fu is impressive. Thank you SO much for the stamps. I'll be going to the post office tomorrow with a buttload of swaps and stamps for the wounded. You've got the best heart. BUT! After several minutes of tape removal I got to THE most awesome bookmark! What a lucky Pattie I am!! I'm sure you can imagine just how thrilled I am, which is good because words fail. Thank you! A million times, and a skillion hearts, thank you!
Response: I admit that I have a slight tendency to over tape...I just want to be safe. LOLOL ... think of it as exercise for the mind. But you are very welcome for the stamps andthe bookmark. I knew what I wanted to make as soon as I saw that you were my partner. Thank you for the great rating. â™¥
Comment: How I always love receiving mail from you! I love the Atlanta Georgia aquarium postcard! I never ever knew it was the largest one! Never even knew about the aquarium there! Which is sad cause I used to live an hour or two from Atlanta! I visit the south every year so now that I know about it I'm definitely going to go there! Thank you not just for the wonderful postcard, but for telling me about it! And when I do go I will be sure to send you a postcard :-)
Response: You are very welcome. I truly had a great time at the aquarium and yes if you re in the Atlanta area again, please do go. : ) Thank you for the 5â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the Maleficent journal! I'm stoked! I was just thinking yesterday how much I wanted one and now I have one! You're the greatest! I also appreciate the address labels, swap cards, and writing implements. Thanks for an amazing swap!
Response: Oh Suzanne I am so happy you liked the journal. : ) I am also glad you enjoyed the other items. Thank You for a wonderful rating.
Comment: Thanks Paige for the great postcard! It will go great in my ever growing collection. LOL, I laughed at your comment about Grease. Yes, I also wanted to be a pink lady back then....Grease is the word!! Have a great day, and thanks so much again. Have fun swapping! :)
Response: So happy you enjoyed the postcard. And yes Grease was awesome...Dirty Dancing was great also...Never Put Baby in a Corner. LOL Thank you for the great rating. â™¥
Comment: Paige- thank you for the most beautiful mermaid pc! I love it! I love all the stickers and the adorable octopuss drawing! Love how you included the time and temp! And everything you wrote! Makes me so happy to see a postcard full instead of just a short "hello" best wishes to you and your family. Thank you!
Response: You are very welcome. : ) I love writing postcards and try to make the message meaningful. Thank you for the 5â™¥. : )
Comment: I really enjoyed doing this swap. I got a boat-load of delayed mail today and yours was the brightest by far! I'm so happy with my new stash of stickers - with my favorite being the comic-themed one and my ultimate fave being the Jetoy postcard. What a special swap! P.S: In case I didn't say: congrats on being a grandma (again)!
Response: Oh I am so so glad this found its way to you safe and sound. : ) Thank you for the wonderful rating and for the congrats on being a grandma. LOL
Comment: Great card. It was worth to wait. I love the stickers. Thank you!
Response: Oh I am so very happy this one arrived. :) I am also very happy that you enjoyed it. I hope the original one will show up some day when you need a little cheer. Thank you for the chance to resend and for being an awesome partner.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATCs! I really love the way you used the zentangles - I usually do them a lot smaller (which is tricky) but your way was spectacular! The colours were awesome too. I would love to continue swapping the ABCs with you when you make it back this way! Thanks for being an awesome host, swapper, and... person!
Response: You are most welcomed. And yes I rarely do the "smaller" tangle patterns, it would drive me crazy. LOL Thank you for the great rating and the â™¥
Comment: Paige ~ I never feel 'stuck' when I see you're my partner! I really like the PC you sent and agree that B&W always feels and looks clean. I had black&white tiles in one of my kitchens and loved it. Thanks again for the great PC and have a great week ~~
Response: You are a sweetie! Thanks so much for the great rating.
Comment: Thanks so much for the Hendrix PC! I am a fan tho' I don't listen to him much anymore. Back in the '60's I did see him play in Vancouver,BC..WoW.. his mother was in the audience and Jimi had a cold! Btw, I'd love to meet Ellen DeGereres, too.
Response: Your completely welcome. I am not a big electric guitar fan, but I know he was a talented man. It is too bad he left us too soon...just like Janis Joplin. Thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Hey! Thank you so much for the great postcard. I have never had a unicorn postcard. I like it!
Response: I thought you might enjoy that card. : ) Marinda is one of my favorite names and for some odd reason makes me think of happy whimsical type stuff, so i thought about the unicorn PC I had when I found I I was to send to you. I am glad you liked it! Thank You for the 5â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for swapping with me and also thank you for hosting this swap to say 'welcome to swap-bot' to me. I am already having so much fun in swapping and creating and today was a special day. After waiting a little, today the postman brought me two cards and one ATC from overseas!
The Dali card is beautiful, I love Dali and I didn't know this painting is in the Moma. And the stamps are special as well, haven't seen these before.
Response: I am so glad you liked the Dali card. I had been saving that one for a while now...when I popped it in the box, I felt a little tinge of hesitation as it was a favorite...but I am super glad it found its way to you. : ) Thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful dragon card! I love it :) I'm a stickler about parking too, I figure if it takes more than 3 attempts to do park in reverse, people probably ought not to park that way. Sigh... Thanks again for the awesome swap!
Response: I loved that card. LOL...I am glad it has a good home. Thanks for the great ratings also. (And don't even get me started on parallel parking. :(
Comment: Paige - Thanks for the great PC of the Queen Mary - what a beautiful ship she was! I enjoyed hearing of your 'travels' on Christmas Day -- how horrible that would be for kids to have to wait to play with your goodies, but on the flip side you had something to look forward to :-) Thanks again for the great PC and have a great week ~~
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the Queen Mary...I agree she was a beautiful ship. : ) Thank You for the 5â™¥.

I still remember it though...I was so in love with them. *sigh* - Anyway I am glad you enjoyed the PC...like I said it is one of my all time favs and I held on to it for a LONG time. I may try to find another and have someone mail it nake to me. Thanks for the wonderful rating.

Comment: Thanks so much for the great yellow PC -- I love it! The little girl is so darn cute. I, too, like yellow - it makes me happy and I always think of warm sunshine when I see it. Thanks again for the great PC ~~
Response: You are welcome...I am glad that you liked it...it is from a set of very weird (but great postcards). I am happy it has a good home. Thanks for the 5â™¥
Comment: Thank you Paige! Today my 4yold nephew was very sad that I got so much mail and he didn't get any, So I let him open the dominos (I have been teaching him to alter them and thought he would like to see) and then once he got the pink paper off he thought they were fantastic and that they should be his. I also think they are fantastic. Thank you
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad that your nephew was able to get a little "happy mail". Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Holy mackerel - what a gorgeous PC!!! I put my reading glasses on just to stare and study it - I think you hand drew some of it, but it is so perfect I can't tell which is drawn or stamped! Anyway, it's beautiful and your penmanship is amazing. Thanks for such a great PC.
Response: I only hand drew some of the cob webs...so I can't take credit for that...however; the pen I used is one that a friend of min from work got me. It is a super super fine point and actually draws like using a pencil it is so fine point. Anyway I am very glad you enjoyed it. It has been awhile since I was able to get out alll my markers, color pencils, and ink pads. : ) Thank You for the amazing rating and for being amazing yourself! â™¥
Comment: Thank you, Paige! Your pc's got here this afternoon and the girls were ecstatic! I kept the tardis for myself since you wanted the orange one back instead. Your postcard should be getting back to you quickly as I've just mailed it! Great swap! Thank you! :)
Response: Holy Moly! I just mailed it...that was FAST! Anyway I am glad you liked them all...the inside of the Tardis (the orange one) is one of my most favorite cards, so when I said Tardis that is the exact one I meant. I am looking forward t5o receiving it. Also I am glad your girls were please. : ) Thanks for the â™¥
Comment: Paige, I don't know what to say! The shrine is so absolutely gorgeous. If that is the first one you made, I am completely in awe of your talent. I am so touched by how much work you have put in. This has now got a special place on my dresser where I will see it every day. There are not words to adequately express how much I love it. Thank you so, so very much â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Oh my....I am thrilled you liked it that much. And yes it was my first one, I am very very glad you are pleased with it. Thank for you for the awesome rating. :â™¥
Response: Oh YAY!!! I am very glad you enjoyed everything. I really had a good time making that envelope for you. And I am super glad that you like it (and that you made your fianc'e wait to open it LOL). Thank You for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: Guess what arrived today.... I love her! (especially her psychedelic parts) I like the washi tape you used on the envie (where did you get that cool scissors tape?) Thanks for hosting this swap. â™¥
Response: Whew....I am happy she has arrived and you liked her. The hair gave me fits for some reason...LOL. And yeah when I finished her she reminded me of the movie "Flash Dance". Anyway thanks bunches for the awesome rating. You actually gave me my 600th 5 rating. : )
Comment: Very nicely made potholders!! And I love the thick multicolor yarn you chose. The potholders arrived by truck delivery at 12.30. The postcard came by regular mail an hour later :-)
Response: Well you should feel honored, because I am about 97.8% sure I won't be crocheting anymore...I just can't seem to do it very well. Those were really tough for me sigh...I thank you very much for the great rating. I truly did put all my heart into it for you. â™¥
I love the ATC you sent! It's now propped up on the shelf over my office desk! And thank you too for the information about the techniques you used. As a real newbie to ATC making (I'm about to make my third one!) I really appreciate understanding more about how other people create them.
Response: You are most welcome. I really did have a good time with that ATC. I am glad it has a good home. Thank you for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: I just knew I had an incredible partner. Thanks for the amazing swap that went above and beyond the requirements. My bears name is Harry and I can't wait to nap with him tonight and play some bingo at home. Thank you Paige. Everything was incredible!! â™¥â™¥
Response: Oh I am so glad you enjoyed everything. It was a lot of fun going to the different thrift stores around here. When I found the bear I almost did a little happy dance right in the middle of the store. LOL Thanks for the wonderful rating!
Comment: Really cute back of card. I like the way you typed, clean font, nice color, easy to read! They say there's something about the way a person handles tangled Christmas lights, ha ha, that's why we eventually went with a pre lit fake tree! Glad your postives were great ones and negs were temporary! Merry Christmas, hope your girls LOVE their gifts! = ) â™¡
Response: You are very welcome. And once again I thank you for letting me type it...LOL. And yeah let's not discuss the "Great Christmas Tree Light Fiasco of 2013" Thank you for the wonderful rating!
Comment: My name isn't quite Rose... Lol! I can't really relate to having twins daughters xD oopsies wrong card lol but thank you for the stickers and Xmas wishes all the same! (:
Update 11/20/13 I got your resend. Thank you for being so sweet to send another card! And for the extras also (:
Response: No No No.....I must have accidentally switched cards. That is terrible and so not deserving of a â™¥. I am popping you another in the mail right now. I tried to relate everything to something off the profile and apparently I swapped up cards. :( Please be on the look out for another card. â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Comment: Paige -- Good to see you again at my mailbox! I've never been to Alaska either and doubt that I'll get there, at least not in this life time ;-) Thanks for the great PC, and have a great week ~
Response: Alaska does seem awesome huh? Glad you enjoyed the card. : ) Thank for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the great pc and for the lovely share! Your night memories sound like my summer memories with kiddos - life was just less complicated and so much more enjoyable! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Ahhhh...thank you so much for the sweet words. And yes, when my girls were younger life was much less complicated. : ) Thank you for the 5â™¥
Comment: Paige, this card is STUNNING! S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G! Stunning isn't even the right word, it's too gorgeous for words. This is totally getting framed and going on my desk at work so I can admire it everyday (and of course I'll bring it home on the weekends because I don't want to miss seeing it). Seriously, I'm not just gushing over this card because I think you're one of the coolest people in the world, this card is a TREASURE and I will be certain to treat it that way forever. Eleventy bazillion hearts for you!!
Response: Oh My....I am totally blushing. I am super glad you like the card. I was a little partial to it myself LOL, but I knew it would be going to a great home. : ) Thank You so much for all the kind words (and the 5â™¥) , I think you are a pretty awesome lady yourself. â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Comment: I don't mind you sending to me all the time. You have some great pc's! In fact, this one made my day - my (married) last name means "Keeper of Ducks" (at least that's all my husband could find when he looked). When I found that out, I started saving duck things. I've stopped now... lol.
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the ducks. : ) I pick it out special for you. Thank you for the awesome rating.
Comment: I love your drunk baby Crane. Thank you for hosting this awesome swap idea, I hope it'll be a repeat in due time...
Response: Bawahahahaha....I hope PITA doesn't find out that I got a baby crane drunk and took pictures just for a postcard to send you. LOLOL....I am not sure where I came up with the idea. I think I was surfing and saw the pink elephants and the idea just popped in my brain. I hope it made you smile. : ) Thank You for the great rating.
Comment: Thanks for the great card, Paige! The more i looked at it, the creepier it got! haha I love the little octopus stamp too! I've never been to Georgia, but I imagine it is indeed different hopefully you're having a pretty autumn at least! We don't get such things out here in the LA area :( Happy Swapping and thank you again!
Response: YAY! I am glad it creeped you out...LOL. Thank you for the very nice rating. : )
Comment: Thank you for the cactus postcard. There seems to be lots of pretty cactus in Arizona. I have heard that Arizona is a nice place to visit. Perhaps you should avoid the desert in summer if you plan to visit.
Response: I am glad the cactus arrived to you safe and sound. And yes the AZ desert is not somewhere I would enjoy in the summer. LOL Thank you for the 5â™¥
Comment: WOW!! That's a whole school of fish! I almost missed them because they look like part of the tiki but then I studied it some more and see lots of undersea life. Thanks a bunch for this card, I love it.
Response: LOL....I thought I would send you one of my most special cards. I love those cards. I had 2 sets but have slowly sent them all out...I am probably going to order more. I love the colors and the subtleness of them. : ) Anyway I am glad you enjoyed it and I am glad you had a little "eye spy" game to play with it. â™¥
Comment: Another great card. Thank you so much! I've been enjoying the Postcard Place.
Response: LOL...Thank You for the kind words. That means a lot...I will admit it was a bit difficult trying to come up with different cards for you, considering I mailed to you 3 times out of the 5. O_o But I think the ghost card might have been my favorite (it was a lot of fun to make). Thanks for the 5â™¥
Comment: Oh goodness, this cat and owl in the sailboat PC may be one of my all time favorites! I can tell that even my boyfriend is going to flip on this one! I love it! Thank you so much for a great swap!
Response: I am glad that card now has a good home...I thought it was pretty cool. : ) Thank you for the great rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for more great Paige mail! A rubiks cube costume would be hilarious, but yes, probably very uncomfortable. I don't think Mom's think about that too much, just how cute we/they look. Thank you too for the great stickers, you definitely have a knack for finding some of the coolest ones!
Response: LOL...Yeah the rubik;s cube was rough. Thanks you for the 5â™¥
Comment: I absolutely loved the postcard too. It felt very Native American like. I've been to Canada, but not Vancouver.
Thanks for being such an awesome partner! xoxoâ™¥â™¥
Response: Well after looking through my PCs and wanting to pick out something "different" for you but not "different" like normal "different", I just kept coming back to this one. For some reason I just like the complex simplicity of the PC. Thank you for the awesome rating. â™¥ always!!
Comment: Your card traveled super quick!! Can you imagine I bought one just like that in a local store!!
Thank you for the compliment, yes a lot of people call me Kristy, or Kristen. I'm named after my grandmother who was born on the Isle of Man (UK)
Thank you forthe beautiful card Paige :-)
Response: Wow that was fast....Thanks for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: I was a bit dizzy after reading your message, turning and turning the card. As always, thanks!!
I hope either the heat is a little less or your A/C is working again. We had hot weather last week and cold and rainy weather this week....
Response: LOLOLOL.....I forgot that I had written in a circle. : ) At least it was exercise for the brain! And yes our A/C is working. â™¥
Comment: I haven't even thought about this swap yet - and yours arrived already! lol Typing is always welcome here as it is much easier on my eyes. (";) I am debating whether to ask DH to take me to some cemeteries for this swap - not sure he will be as accommodating as your DH though! Thx and hugs dearie G, N
Comment: OH. MY. What a truly gorgeous banner!!! I think I need to clear off my orange wall to display such a lovely thing! I am just so thrilled. Thanks for hosting such a fun swap and for making me such loveliness! â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Oh I am so very glad that you liked it. : ) I really enjoyed making it for you. And thank you for the 5â™¥
Comment: I had a ton of mail today but right in the middle was a purple octopus covered envelope...no question who that was from! I love your backgrounds! (You did a much better job than I did!) Thanks too for the cool paper, and I don't have any of those stamps. Thanks for swapping with me! :-)
Response: LOL...I am glad you liked the backgrounds I sent you...I love working with ink. Thanks for the great rating. :)
Comment: Hi and sorry for rating so late. I was on holidays and when I returned I had this wonderful package of you with all these things! I love the t-shirts and am already wearing the pink one. Thank you so much for all the extra things!
Response: You are very welcome! I liked the pink one as well...it is University of Georgia Bulldogs! (Who actually just lost their opening season game this past Saturday. Oh well...that for the great rating!
Comment: Another awesome swap from Paige! Thank you so much for each and every postcard you picked out for me. I love them all and might be tempted to hoard them instead of using them in swaps. You were very generous (as always) to send so many and in one of your beautifully handmade envelopes. Paige gets the top swapper award for the month! Update 9/09/13: Today I received another huge envelope full of postcards, a GA keychain and a totally cool fridge magnet with a peach cobbler recipe on it. How am I supposed to give you another 5 and another heart? You deserve so much more and you really shouldn't have sent me a second packet full of goodies for this swap. I love everything and love swapping with you!
Response: Thanks so much for this awesome rating. I am glad you enjoyed the PC choices. Don't hoard the PCs...I can get you many more if you wish (only not peaches, fo some dang reason). â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the colorful card :-) I love the stamps, especially the lighthouse one. Thank you!
Response: You are welcome. I am so sorry the other one is floating around in mail space. Seems like a lot of my pcs mailed that day went bye-bye. :( Anyway thanks for letting me resend. Hugs! and thanks for the â™¥
Comment: I just got the best halloween mail art and goodies. I didn't realize you were my partner until I saw the return address. It made for a happy mail day. You put a smile on my face today. Thank you so much.
Response: I smiled when I saw who I sent to! : ) I am glad you liked it all. â™¥ Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: I was doing some swap archiving and found I never rated you or my other partner for this. Gosh I suck sometimes...I'm sorry. I know I received a card, but my memory sucks, and I recently did a major scan and file of all my received postcards so now I can't find it. I'll keep looking though! Every so often I go through my collection and check out my old cards so it's bound to turn up!
Response: LOL....Well I didn't even catch it. When I have PCs that have 2 or more partners, my mins works so hard on making sure I get all the PCs out, that once I receive 1 rating I think it is over. So no worries my friend. : ) â™¥
Comment: What a great swap. Resend came today. It is awesome. I love the red ruby jewels inspired by Wizard of Oz, the cute tag on top with the shoes. Thanks so much for customizing it for me! I am sorry that the first one never came - USPS is up to something!!!! I am still trying to figure out the inside template. I cut mine with a cricut and yours is so sturdy. Do you cut by hand? Thanks for doing this with me!
Response: YAY! I am so glad this one arrived...who knows the other may end up coming in a few weeks. (Gotta love snail-mail). I don't cut mine at all...I use actual match boxes, with the outer layer (meaning the fire starter part), pulled off. Then I cover it with whatever background paper I decide. LOL....is that cheating? Thanks for the great swap and the 5â™¥
Comment: 22-7:Thank you for the drink! I could use a drink with an umbrella today :-)
I'm sure part deux will follow shortly, be back later.....
13-8: The summer christmas card arrived today! Never before did I see a Santa with a tan :-) Thank you for sending these!
Response: LOL....I love those cards and glad the drink helped you! Thanks for the 5â™¥
Comment: interesting postcard, Paige :) I was staring at the front trying to figure out what it was before I read the back. I just kept thinking sushi/rice/rolls/etc haha. It makes sense now that I read it though!
Response: LOL...I always have my DH try to guess what the letter of each pc would represent. He did the same thing. Then when I told him he was like "Duh"...LOL kind of like hidden in plain sight huh? Thank you for the 5â™¥ I appreciate it. : )
Comment: I love the ATC's you sent, thanks so much!! And thanks so much for doing this swap with me! :) I think the blue one is my favorite too, I love the glitter! :D I definitely need to try adding some glitter to mine in the future.
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you enjoyed them. I love creating backgrounds for ATC, postcards, etc...but when it comes to the "on top" part, I have to sit and think think think...LOL. Thank you for the great rating.
Comment: Thank you Paige for the wonderful ATC and hosting this great swap!!! We have had a lot of rain also , but no lightening storm. I would have loved to photograghed it. I hope the rest of the summer clears up for you. Happy swapping.
Response: You are welcome. The rain is still hitting everyday, but at l am not in a drought or flood, so I should be grateful. : ) Thanks for the 5â™¥
Comment: HOW many ways can I say OMG! You outdid yourself girl! What a great TP booklet. I NEVER thought of making a hradcover and back form the rolls! Stealing THAT idea! It is so overthe top! I can NOT thank you enough! You are da bomb! Now I ahve to rethink mine.... it will not come CLOSE to yours! EXCELLENT ONE MILLION HEARTS!
Response: YAY! I am so glad you liked it. I seriously love making my partner happy. : ) This was a really fun swap! Thank you for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and wonderful (doodle/stamp??). I wish you Happiness too :-)
Response: LOL...Sometimes I just am not really sure what to write so that the receiver doesn't think I am just "going through the motions". I like each person to know they are special, so sometimes I doodle...LOL. Thanks for the 5â™¥.
Comment: Thanks for the card and the cute octopus :)
Response: You are very welcome. : ) And thank you for the great rating. I am so at a loss sometimes on words so the reader won't feel like they are getting some generic note, that I decided to send an octopus instead. LOL
Comment: Thank you Paige for the beautiful cards. I'm Lovin' it ;-) Very nice choice of colors. Thank you!!
(BTW I thought our potal costs were steap, yikes.... :-( )
Response: Sigh...yes postage over here has become over the top. That is why I am having to slow down on International "big swaps". I enjoy them a lot...oh well.
Thanks bunches for the great rating. I had fun making those cards for you. : )
Comment: Wow! These are envelopes I'd be proud to mail to my friends. I I appreciate the extras!! Love the papers, Got your pgk yesterday,see I told ya it would get here sometime.Mail trucks break down or have problems. Thanks so much,Loved it all!!!

Response: Oh that made it pretty fast didn't it? I am so glad you were pleased! Thanks for swapping with me and thanks for the fab rating. : )
Comment: I love the stickers thank you! I guess we are awesome. I wish I had been crafting then I wouldn't be so behind on swaps. Tomorrow I plan to get a bunch done. I've actually had the stickers for a while I just wanted to make a card. It's been kind of weird here the past week or so :p.
Response: In my world "Weird" is the normal way of life. LOL. Thanks for the 5â™¥
Comment: WoW! Paige.......love the card and your technique in the corn. Can you please share with me this technique. Is it a paint or stick on? thank you for playing.
Have fun and take good care
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the PC. The technique was done with "Glass Assents". You can buy it from any craft store. I use it all the time...also I use "Glaze Pens" for some of the glossiness as well. Thank you for the 5â™¥.
Comment: Love that you're my postcard partner, again! Great GA peanut postcard, too... reminded me of how my parents loved their peanuts boiled, too. They tried them on a family vacation to FL and were immediately hooked...me, not so much...LOL! Love my peanuts-- in peanut butter. Thanks, again. Kris B.
Response: LOL....Peanut Butter is awesome! Thanks for the great rating (again). : )
Comment: Love the card, very creative!! Thank you for making it for me, I love it :)
Response: BAWAWAWAHAHAHAHAAHA....Like I said, I kept trying to make it "creepy", but the damn pen had a mind of its own and kept coming out more ont he cute side (well slightly creepy cute)...I am glad you liked it. And thank you for the 5â™¥ my friend!
Comment: That is some mighty fine tearing going on on that PC and it's shiny too? Too awesome! Thanks!!
Response: Thank you so much. I had fun with the swap. But I must admit I had to start over several times...It is not something that I will make a habit out of repeating. LOL Thank you for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: I sooooooo hear you Paige! My husband stays well-clear of my craft room/office -- it's is hallowed ground! He just shakes his head at times ~ it must be LOVE!! Thanks for a great PC - it's a true keeper!
Response: LOL...The craft room is one place I can find "alone time" in...mainly because he is scared to enter. : ) Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: Very fun poem Paige. :) Glad you enjoyed this swap.
Response: Yes, I enjoyed the swap very much!!!! I think next time I will try doodling the swap instead on the sticker flakes. But it was indeed a very wonderful swap...thanks for hosting and for the wonderful rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful envelopes. I might have to make a template from one of them :) Thank you also for the random envie RAK, you sent such awesome stuff!! It was a very happy mail day!!

Comment: Love the vintage VOGUE postcard that you sent. Hope your visit with your daughter and mom was as delightful as the card you sent...BTW, I â™¥ being your SWAPBOT partner :-)
Response: I love those PCs myself. I ordered a huge box of them from Amazon. They feature covers of Vogue throughout the centuries up until around 2005 (I think). Thanks again for the very generous rating and â™¥
Comment: OOOO! What a delightful surprise to find your wonderful envies waiting for me! They are too beautiful to use... esp. when I think of them going through the USPS canceling machines! Thanks too for the cute minis plus the sheet of faux postage stamps! You really deserve many, many, many more hearts than I'm allowed to bestow. Thanks so much for this envelope of awesomeness! You are so generous.
Response: YAY! I am so glad that you received everything safe and sound. And I am glad that you were pleased with everything. I love making those envies. Thank You for the wonderful rating and â™¥.
Comment: What an interesting and beautiful PC. . . and it was so nice to learn a bit about you. I too am not a beach person but the deep sea and its mysteries have also fascinated me. Thanks again for sharing a bit about you. . . and for the beautiful PC. Happy swapping ~~
Response: I love those PCs...they are my favorite. I actually rarely send them out, but it was perfect for this swap. Thanks sooooo much for giving me my 400th â™¥.
Comment: That's a good picture on the postcard - thank you.It arrived today, and here it is a truly spring day warm. I love the fact you wrote in green...I too like using different colours of ink! Thanks for doing this with me.
Response: You are very welcome. I love swapping postcards. Thanks bunches for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: Hi Paige! I love the Monsters, Inc. card you chose - perfect :) I used to live in Atlanta, GA - I was surprised to see ya'll are still getting the occasional chill there this spring. It seems to get hot and humid so fast.
Response: Oh I am glad that you liked the card. : ) Warner Robins, gets much hotter than Atlanta even though it is only about 1.5 hours away...but the weather has just been weird this year. O.o Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Thank you, Paige! What fun mail art, and chock full of awesomeness! I've thought about trying out those glaze pens, Now that I've seen them in action, I think I will. So much papery goodness... I love it! Thank you again!
Response: You are very welcome. Yes those Glaze Pens are fun. They work best on "Non-Porous" paper, but I used the the other day on some thick cardboard and they did just fine (although not quite as "shiney"). Anyway glad you enjoyed everything and thanks for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: Thank you for the Georgia Postcard. I have been to GA many times in the last 20 years-just was there last May 2012 for my Grand-daughter's graduation. Loganville, GA is where I plan to retire.
Response: YAY! I am glad you liked it. Except for the heat, I love Georgia. : ) It will be a great place for you to retire.
Comment: I knew it would come today :) Thank you so much for using my favorite color, I've been trying to build up my collection of green ATCs and this is fabulous! I love the textures and dimension. Thanks so much for trading with me :)
Response: Whooo Whooo!!!!! I am so glad it arrived. I am glad you liked it. : )
Thanks for the â™¥
Comment: What a squishilicious packet of awesomeness! I love it! The envie itself was very cool (was it difficult to work on paper that textured?) The stickers, patch, cut outs and note cards are very nice. And the octopus (not spider) that took up residence in the O of my name made me giggle. Thank you so much for a great swap. You deserve a treasure chest full of hearts. :-)
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a lot fun to make this squishy envie. The paper was actually very easy to work with. I drew it out with a light pencil first then traced over it all with the TomBow Markers and glitter. I had a lot of fun drawing this for you and @Cristin91. : ) Thanks for the wonderful rating and â™¥
Comment: Hi, Paige! Your envie is gorgeous! I love the color and the artwork. I also love the vine pattern on the little notecard inside, as well as the pretty stickers and other notecards. I look forward to using them. Thank you!
Response: Thank You and You are very welcomed. I did something I haven't done in a while...hand draw. LOL...I loved the paper I found to draw on...it looked like water. : ) Thank you also for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: thank you so much for the amazing package! the letters are the greatest thing ever!!!!! And the crafter in me is screaming right now at the delight at the many many many many many different designes right now (i have no idea where to start). and i love the cute notecards and the mix (have a craving for a cup right now :D). and you were right about the pens - they write great! thank you so much again for the awesome package! :) :) :) :) :)
Response: YAY!!!!!! I am soooo glad it finally arrived. I am glad you are so pleased with the package. When yours arrived I was blown away, so I am super glad that you are equally pleased. Thank you for the wonderful rating. : )

Response: Oh you are very welcomed. I am glad you liked it. : ) Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: I live on a cloud currently! Just opened your parcel! My father insisted that i open it while he was here cause he wanted to see... Glad I kept it intact until I stayed alone! Amazing stuff as always my love! The tapes, the brads, stickers, ribbon, TONS of paper! Wow! Thank you and love youuu!
Response: I am glad it made you happy! I had fun putting it together for you. I am sorry about not being able to fit an American man in there for you, but the good ones are hard to come by these days. :P Hugs and thanks (as always) for a wonderful swap...thanks for the great rating â™¥
Comment: Paige, thank you for sharing Taco and Socks with me--I am so fond of cats and dogs! I understand your missing Socks totally! I had my grey tabby, Thomas, for 19 years! He nearly died at 10 of liver disease that came on while I was in hospital having a total hysterectomy. I think he stopped eating because he seemed to sense not just that I was gone but that I was not well. He was fine when I left and looked emaciated when hubby brought me home! I said to get me in the recliner and RUN Thomas to our vet. He seemed to recover gradually just as I slowly healed from the surgery. I have never had a cat who was so incredibly attached to me! He's been gone a long time but I still miss him and love looking at pictures, especially when he was a kitten--a real rascal! Taco reminds me of a cat who adopted us when in grad school--my now ex-hubby rescued in from being stuffed in a mailbox by some kids. We named him Whiskers and had him around for about 5-6 years. He had more yellow markings than Taco. Unfortunately, he just went out one night and never returned. I hate having that happen, but he was his own man and when he wanted to go he was determined to go. Then he'd show up again and stay close for a long time before heading out on another adventure, I guess.
Hope you have many more years to enjoy Taco!
Response: LOL...Thanks bunches for telling me about Thomas and Whiskers as well. : ) Cats are so much better than many people give them credit for being. Thanks for the wonderful rating as well. : )
Comment: Haha, funny that we live in the same area. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather yesterday! I loved being able to wander around in a t-shirt. Also, thank you so much for the pc, the image is beautiful and I'm almost tempted to hang it somewhere in my room.
Response: I thought you would enjoy that card after reading your profile. We were able to enjoy the weather between all the darn rain. LOL...Thanks for the awesome rating. : )
Comment: Your altered PC made my day! Absolutely wonderful, witty and superbly done! Thank you, too, for incorporating my love of 'Queen' into this swap! Well done! I wish I could give you more hearts!
Response: Yep, once I read your profile I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Thanks for the wonderful rating and the â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the pretty little dress - it's so glamorous and formal!
Response: You are very welcomed. What is funny, is the first dress I had made for you got "Liquid Glass" spilled all over it. UGH!!! I freaked out of course, but then just threw away all the mess and started over. I think the 2nd (the one you were sent), actually turned out better than the first one. Thanks for the wonderful rating also.
Comment: What a great card, Paige! It and the cute little packet of toppers ( going to steal the closure idea, LOL ) made my grey, snowy Danish day :o)
Thank you also for the note inside, it made me smile :o)
Response: Hello...Glad you enjoyed the card and glad it brought a smile to you. : ) Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you Paige for my wonderful PC with no P&P! I love the counterpoint of the shiney textured swirls with the matt paper and yellow background. The quote is perfect too! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you liked it. : ) Thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Really nicely done! I enjoyed the new storyline. Thanks!
Response: Oh Thank You so much! I was worried about this. Not that I didn't try my best, because I always give 100%, I was just hoping the story/poem wasn't too weird for you. LOL Thanks for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: The pins are stunning, the packaging is stunning ... I cannot believe you felt out of your comfort zone at all!!!! These are just GORGEOUS and the MB is such a clever way to package everything. Thanks for such a great swap! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Whoooo Whooo I am so glad it arrived safely and that you enjoyed it. It was a fun swap. : ) Thanks for the great rating and the â™¥.
Comment: I have the best Secert Valentine ever!!! Thanks Paige, You truely made my day!!! I love the way you packaged it up and all the great Valentine surprises. I checked the mailbox when leaving for work and carried it with< all at work couldn't wait for me to open it. I think you just recurited some new members. Thanks again, and Happy swapping, Connie
Response: Oh I am so glad you liked the package. It was fun decorating with all the birds. I am also glad you liked all the goodies. : ) Thank you so much for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Wow! This is a beautiful book! You really outdid yourself on this project! I love the themes you chose and the execution of each theme is very neat and also so creative and lovely! Thanks so much, I will treasure it! Also, thanks for all the gifts tucked into the book! There were so many nice surprises. I especially liked the literature page with many of my favorite childhood classics on it!
Response: Whew....I was stressing over this book. I enjoy making them, but then I stress over them. LOL...I did have fun with your themes though. : ) You are a wonderful partner to send to. Thanks for the super rating and â™¥. Happy 2013.
Comment: I love my envie----that snail is awesome!!! Thanks for the stickers and papers inside. (very smart of you to wrap it in plastic, or I would have missed out on a lot of your artwork with that huge postage sticker they slapped on there.) Thanks for making it a happy mail day for me. :-)
Response: YAY! I had so much fun drawing that snail. Like I (think) I mentioned I so rarely hand draw things any more that I forget how much I actually like doing it. And yes I learned the hard way a while back to use a plastic covering over mail-art (and often when I do handmade postcards as well. Thanks for the wonderful ratings. â™¥
Comment: I say you do just great with non paper as well. The Beverage Sleeves are adorable. I love daiseys and the pair you used is so soft I am sure I will be petting my cup! The others you left for my feet are way cute. Will be perfect for the holidays! Thank you again so much. PS I also plan to use the adorable snowman box the HappyMail arrived in.
Response: LOLOL...When I read about petting your cup, I for real giggled. Anyway I am glad you liked it and the wonderful little box was from @KellyS in another swap. Merry Christmas & thanks for the wonderful rating. :)
Comment: Thank you, Paige! Your envie is so pretty! It's eye-catching and then the texture makes me want to keep touching it, too. Thank you for the Christmas card fronts and the great stickers, too. You have some friends with great taste if those cards are anything to judge by. :) My crafty assistant thinks you have very good taste in kitties, too.
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you liked it. Thanks for the great rating and the â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Christmas card and the beautiful ornament. Can't wait to place it on the tree or I may just hang it up on my xmas card wall right now until the tree is up. And thank you for your lovely comments. my kids get compliments alot regarding their big bright eyes, especially my son. The weather is pretty chilly here too but probably not as cold as back east. And yes I would definitely agree that your future hubby is quite delicious. :o) I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
Response: I am so glad you liked the card. I wish you and your beautfiul family a Very Merry Christmas! Thanks for the â™¥
Comment: WOW!!! Thank you for all the goodies!!! Above and beyond, for certain. The orange camel (how random :P) lost two legs in a shipping accident but otherwise all arrived unscathed! LOVE the teensy corked bottle of orange microbeads!!! <3 It's all so perfectly me, YOU ROCK! THANK YOU! <3 <3 <3
Response: whew...and I can breathe now...I was really beginning to think it had gotten lost. Sorry about the little orange camel. LOL...I think I actually have another one. Anyway, I am glad that you liked the goodies. I loved buying for you, you are easy and fun...uhm...you know what I mean. â™¥ Thanks for the â™¥
Comment: Thanks Paige, and I checked this to make sure I had the right one. I checked off the pc with sparkle in my book. Now I have to find out which one I marked wrong.
Response: LOL...I have done the same thing before. It was funny though, because I had just dropped that "card" swap off at the post office not more than 2 hours prior to seeing the rating. LOL...I was thinking WOW the postal service is super quick these days. : ) Anyway thanks for the great rating. Take Care.
Comment: Thanks for the delightful letter.... I really laughed when you told me about your white (aka black) cat rolling in the ashes! Thanks, too, for the beautiful ATC.... love the bright colors and design!
Response: You are very welcome. UGH...I love that cat, but he is a nut (and the fact that my DH raised him to think he is a dog doesn't help matters.) I am glad you liked the ATC and thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you SO much! I really appreciate you taking the time to swap with me, and you've totally made Kaia's day with the oodles of temporary tattoos you sent her! She opened her gift when she got home from school, and was just awestruck. "That lady must really love me!" Thanks for being awesome! :)
Response: Oh I am so glad everything arrived safe and sound. And I am very glad Kaia liked the Temp Tattoos. : ) Thank You for the great rating. â™¥
Comment: The inchies arrived, yay! The envelope was addressed perfectly so there was no reason for them to have been returned:(. I'm glad you persisted because I love what you made. I love that you read my profile, the quilt and ocean themes are perfect for me! Thank you so much for beautiful inchies and for hosting such a fun swap! â™¥
Response: Oh I am so glad they finally arrived happy and healthy. I just could not figured out why the original envelope kept coming back, it was nuts. Anyway, I am glad you liked them. I was really pleased with how they turned out. Thank you for the wonderful rating. Happy Swapping! â™¥
Comment: What a wonderful job you did on my mini. I love love love it!!! I wish I could give you many more 5's and hearts! I love swapping with you! You're the BEST!!!
Response: woooo wooo....so glad you liked it. It was a lot of fun and I think it would be awesome to make another for Easter (Christmas would be fun too, but such a busy time of year and a greater potential for lost mail.) Thanks bunches for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: You are so wonderful. I got a kick out of all of the packaging. Allison thought I got a new phone. :)
The trims you made are amazing. How did you do those stars? I love all of them and can't wait to wrap some presents. I think the smaller will be perfect for the little piggy bank ornaments for my nieces. Thank you so much. You always make the prettiest things.
Response: YAY - I am so glad that you liked them. The stars are actually easy. I will try to find a tutorial and send it. I have it somewhere. Anyway thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: OHHHHH! Phâ€™nglui mglwâ€™nafh Cthulhu Râ€™lyeh wgahâ€™nagl fhtagn! Cool, is this a sticker or did you handdraw the MASTER? LOOOOVE! And the handdrawn bunny is so great! Thank you! Like, you use your octo stamp so often :)
Response: LOL...I found that on google. I knew I wanted to do a Cthulhu for you, but wanted something as sweet as the bunny...when I saw that one, I knew you would like it. AS for the bunny, it is copied from a stamp I have. : ) And I use the octopus stamp on EVERYTHING. I love it, it may be one of my most favoritest things I have gotten since being on SB. Thank You for the awesome rating. â™¥â™¥
Comment: I just love the inchies you sent. I am taking them to my next stamp club meeting. Great job.
Response: Oh thank you so much for the compliments. I am very glad that you liked them. I can't wait until I receive all the inches to put the quilt together. Thanks also for suggesting such an an awesome swap. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the great inchies. The yellow rose is wonderful, thank you for making that special for me. The colortangle is happy and makes me smile. Thank you very much. Am getting excited to assemble my inchie quilt.
Response: I am glad that you liked the inchies. I tried to make all the inchies profile specific, and I thought the yellow rose would be perfect for you. I am ready to make my quilt as well. Thanks for the â™¥.
Comment: Holy cow! I LOVE these inchies! It would not be possible for you to make something I would like more! You even signed the back and used a tiny octopus stamp! How cool is that??? Thank you very much, Paige. I will treasure these lovely little works of art. :-)
Response: ahhh...thanks so much for the kind words. I am super glad that you liked the inchies. : ) Thanks for the great rating and â™¥
Comment: OMG - a *RILEY* inchie!!! too too too too cute!!! I absolutely love it!!! And the purple zentangle one is gorgeous too! But a rattie/mousie *riley* inchie -- that is just so precious! Thank you so very very much!!
Response: LOL you are very welcome...I thought you might enjoy the "Riley" inchie. And the back ground is Swiss cheese. Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: I love the inchies Paige, thank you so much!! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile-I always read everyone's profile too-whether it's a profile base swap or not.
Response: You are completely welcome. I try to always adjust things to fit someone's style. I can't wait till everyone receives all the inches and we can put the quilt together. : )
Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Thanks so much for the cute inchies...can't wait to put the "quilt" together!
Response: You are very welcome. I had fun with these. Thanks so much for the wonderful rating. FYI-When I was a little girl, my mother took me and my brother to see Elvis. I barely remember, but I do still love to hear his voice. : )
Comment: Holy crap, that cost you a lot to mail! (Sure am glad I returned that postage to you the other day.) What an adorable gnome and butterfly letter set you made! And the little note cards are precious too! Squeeeee! lol Did you stamp, hand colour and line one page and then scan it? It's so cute! Plus the handmade envies are the perfect touch. I LOVE your swaps dearie G! Thank you lots! Hugs, N (";)
Response: Oh yeah...how rude of me, thanks so much for returning that postage. : ) And I was just worried about the papers getting wrinkled so I didn't mind the cost. I stamped, colored and lined the original, then I printed it on my printer. The little note cards I printed out from the original then cut them. The envies I made with the help of my Cricut. I had a lot of fun making this swap. I still have the original if you want it. I am glad that you liked them. Thanks for the â™¥ also - Hugs back "G"
Comment: Supppper...nice journal..!... Many Thanks.. cj
Response: I was so "up in arms" about this journal. I kept starting it and then never liked the way it turned out, so I finally went to Books-a-Million and found a book (on the clearnace table) with faces. Then finally an inspiration hit on how to do the journal. Thanks a million for the great rating.
Comment: Wait a minute! The Queen of Halloween sent me a *fall* card?! lol It is lovely and the acorn stickers are so pretty! But I will be returning the **orange** die cuts to you forthwith. Using my classy new fall return addy labels of course! I just love getting swaps from you dear G - many thx! Hugs, N (";) Update: I was only joking about the die cuts dear G - orange is perfectly fine at this time of year! lol
Comment: Thank you so much Paige for the beautiful handmade card, and the address labels :) so sweet of you!
The card is beautiful:)
BTW, things are almost back to normal with my kids. Insurance is about to cut checks so they are happy about that:)
Response: I am so glad that things are better for the kids...I can't imagine what they must have been going through. Thank you so much for the wonderful rating and of course the â™¥
Comment: + 1000 more hearts to you! Oh Paige! This is absolutely one of the nicest swaps I have ever received. My hubby and I went through it together and had SO MUCH FUN! You not only sent something for every letter of the alphabet, but you sent things I could USE for every letter of the alphabet! Your choices were absolutely inspired and you put so much detail and work on each and every letter. I am just amazed at how much work you put in on this ONE swap! Although I have been working on mine, I am inspired now to do things somewhat differently in my own. Thank you so much for hosting this wonderful swap AND for making my package so incredibly fantastic. If I am lucky, you will be my sending partner in many future swaps! Hats off to you!
Response: Oh WOW! What a wonderful rating. I am so happy that you enjoyed the swap so much. I had a lot of fun making it. Anyway, thanks again for the great rating and of course for the â™¥ and Happy Halloween.
Comment: Thank you so much Paige!! I love the package you sent- the cutouts are just great, I love the owl! I really appreciate your generosity. :) Beautiful packaging and thoughtful extras, love it! The envelopes are precious. :)
Response: WOOOOOO....I love it when my partner is pleased. I am glad you like the cut-outs, it was a really fun swap. Thanks for the wonderful rating! â™¥
Comment: I would have been disappointed if you wouldnt have sent any corn related thing :D Cute postcard! The skull is awesome! Love the candy shaped teeth! What product did you use for the eyes?I am really struggling with my shaped ATC and I am glad I choose a long send time.
Response: WOW! I can't believe how fast that reached you. I am very glad you liked it though. The eyes were done with Black Stickler. The other parts were done with the Glitter Sticklers. And yes, there was no way I was going to send something without corn...when I was looking through my PCs for another swap, I found that! It was perfect. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I braved the rain and was glad I did. I had happy mail today from you. I love my LP. Allison ooed over the toppers and swap cards. I ooed over all of it. It's perfect. Thank you.
Response: YAY!!!! I really had a lot of fun doing this swap. I knew what I wanted to make for you but then I wanted to add a "little" Halloween (safe because of the kiddos) so I made up the book mark for you as well. You are an awesome partner. Hugs. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Awwww, you know how to make me happy ^.^ This card brings back some memories... when I was waiting by a door, it opened and there she was ^0^ As for the technical side ~ I feel totally lame about my own door now =.= I could play with yours for hours ^.^ open... and close... and open... and close... ^0^ Love it how the stickers match her earrings too ^0^ and the notecard is very cute ^.^ Thank you very much!!
Response: Oh you are very welcomed. I am super glad that you liked the card. I had fun making it. : )
Thanks for the great rating. â™¥
Comment: Thx so much for the pretty note cards and --- *sqeeeeee!* --- for the handmade postalettes! I just LOVE them! What can I say, dearie G, other than that "You ROCK!". Seriously. (";) Lots of hugs, N
Response: Glas you liked them "N"....and you are the one that rocks! â™¥
Comment: How totally cool, thanks for the wonderful sea book ( I feel like I am in the ocean) and book mark (dangling with sea charms and it looks llike sea glass). Great swap!!!
Response: Well I had thought and thought about this swap. I wanted to make sure you received something you would like, so after reading your total love for books, I knew a journal and bookmark would be something you would enjoy. : ) I am really glad you liked it. Thanks for the awesome rating.
Comment: The doll you made me is PERFECT. I was so happy to see all the little hello kitties!! She has a revered place in my hello kitty collection :) You did such a wonderful job with her!! I also love the 3D stickers and HK post-its! This was an awesome swap as always!! xoxoxoxoxo
Response: YAY! I am happy that she arrived safely and that you liked her. I knew exactly what I was going to do when we first set up the swap, but I got stuck on the hair color for some reason. I wanted her to have the Hello Kitty Pink hair, but she looked not "Courtneyish"...when I redid it with the black hair it just looked much better. Anyhow, thanks for the wonderful rating and for the fun swap. â™¥
Comment: How on earth do you manage to cram so many little goodies into one little book? lol I love the old fashioned theme, right down to your Mom's recipes and the retro paper you used! And of course the giftie tags and mini (J)Hello note cards and enviesare adorable too! But of course...ah-hah! ...you could not manage to fit that wee cookbook in there too, could you? lol Even the might G has her limits! Thx again dearie for a wonderful, wonderful swap! Hugs, N. (";)
Response: Oh I had so much fun doing that swap...I could have made and crammed so many more goodies but nope try as I might I could not stuff the wee little cookbook in there. One of the recipes (for the Taco Dip Stuff), I actually made tonight for dinner...YUMMO! And simple! Anyway I am glad you liked everything, this may have been one of my favorite swaps in a long time. HUGS dear "N" â™¥
Comment: Oh my - this is the most awesome package!!! The PIGGY is just the prettiest thing I've ever seen!!! I've got to find just the right very special place to put him! And all those adorable buttons!!! And all the art supplies!!!! Wow - it felt like it was Christmas, opening this wonderful box!! THANK YOU so very very much!!!!
Response: WOW - That was fast. Anyway I had fun choosing your items and you have an easy profile so that helps a lot. The Piggy was just too cute to pass up. Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Very cool card--love it! thanks very much Paige!
Response: WHOOOO I get so nervous sending postcards, so when someone receives one they like it makes me happy as I really do try to fit the card to the person. : ) Thanks for the â™¥ and Happy Swapping!
Comment: Pretty and sparkly, just like I like it! I hate summer too (it is 90F here, way too hot for us northerners, especially without a/c!). Thx dearie! Hugs, Terry (";)
Response: Wow...90F, I guess I would have thought it would be cooler up there. *sigh*... Anyway I am glad that you enjoyed the PC. I am mailing you another swap tomorrow...LOL. Thanks for the â™¥ Love ya - "G"
Comment: it's here, it's here! what a wonderful atc! thank you paige! you're the 2nd atc i've received and i am glad to have it in my growing collection!! i also loved the extras and the handmade envelope. too cool!
Response: I am very glad it arrived safely and that you liked it. I have a slight envelope fetish, so I try to send out fun ones when I can. : ) Thanks for the â™¥ and for the lovely comments.
Comment: As usual, dear G, you have sent a fun, colourful, sparkly, delightful swap! Love the old photos, and the tribute to Socks - also special are the zentangle and, of course, the recipes - yay! Thx for this journal, and for everything else dearie! Hugs, N (";)
Response: Wow...that got there really fast...anyway, I am very glad you liked it. I had fun making it, still haven't figured out how I managed to get the pages out of order ??? Anyway, thanks for the wonderful rating and thanks mostly for being a wonderful person! â™¥â™¥
Comment: Hi Paige, Thanks SO much for the great envies, including the pretty one you sent them in. I also love your Octopus return address label & note paper. Sorry for the late rating. Take care & have a fun summer. :)
Response: Oh I am so glad you liked them. Thanks for the wonderful rating. You have a wonderful summer as well. : )
Comment: She is sooooo beautiful-there are so many little trinkets on her-fun to look at! My husband likes her too. :D Thank you for such a lovely doll. I may have to do a bottle doll swap next month and give it a try.
Response: Credit and inspiration for her goes to @RyeRye. I bought 2 of hers off her esty store and fell in love with them. I thought it would be perfect for the "blue" swap. Thanks for the wonderful rating and heart. â™¥
Comment: The art journal pages that you sent are just wonderful! Thank you so much for the obvious time and effort that you put in to making them. Thanks also for the cool paper, I will put it to good use! I hope to swap with you again (:
Response: You are very welcome. I was nervous about it to be honest. I put 100% effort into it, but I was still nervous, because drawing is not my strong point. But thank you so much for the wonderful rating and the â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the lovely butterfly postcard. It finally flew into my mail box. Your message really made me stop and think. I don't have children of my own, but thinking of all those children who did not have a chance to live a normal life is really sobering. Thank you once again.
Response: I agree...it is very sobering. And thanks for the â™¥
Comment: Damn Paige!! You did such a great job on these!!! I haven't even started mine yet!!! I absolutely love all of them but the creepy zipper type face is my most favorite!!! That is a GREAT image!!! Thanks also for all the extras!!!!!
Response: YAY!!!! I am glad you liked them. My DH liked the zipper face one best also. I liked the one of the girl looking downward with the blood on the corners. Thanks for the awesome rating. â™¥
Comment: Hi Paige, don't know what you were worried about! Your cards are so professionally made! I LOVE THEM! It will be hard to part with any of them but I will share your beautiful work with my closest friends or family. And the little booklet with my name on it is so cute. Maybe I'll put my favorite postage stamps in there! Thanks for another great swap! I can only hope you like the box I made you as much as I like the cards you made me! Hugs!
Response: I am super glad that you like the cards and the little booklet. (The credit for the little booklet goes the djcamp, she sent me one simular and I fell in love with it.) I am sure I will be pleased with the altered box. Thanks for a wonderful rating. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Weeee! I love the pretty colored gems all of them! I also fancy the border designs, I am working on a few projects that they will work great on. Thank you so much for everything, it was fun to open and sort out the goodies! Thanks!
Response: YAY!!!! I am thrilled that you liked it all! It is so cliche' but I really do love when my swap partner is happy. Thanks for the wonderful ratingâ™¥â™¥
Comment: I knew when you suggested this swap that I'd be glad I agreed to it but at that time I was only thinking about what I was making and sending to you. I had no idea what I received would be so incredibly wonderful. I'd say you've covered all bases: homemade cards, envelopes & address labels, fabric that is so beautiful I don't want to share with anybody, ribbons in my favorite themes, sock monkey stickers, a quilted postcard instruction book, rubber stamp and a tiny personalized book that you made just for me. I'll even use the polyester fiberfill packing material in my next stuffed owl. Thank you so much for all the time, effort & love you put into what you sent me. What an excellent swapping experience!
Response: Patricia, I really had a good time with this swap. When I saw the fabric, there was absolutely NO way I could pass by it. You were very easy to make a profile swap for. The little book I copied from one that I was sent by @djcamp04. I thought it was adorable and thought you would enjoy one. : ) Anyway thanks for the awesome rating and yes this was a great swapping experience. â™¥
Comment: I actually love the ATC you made with the Octopus and Frida...well done! Thanks for joining my swap!! Hugs!
Response: LOL...I am glad you liked it. I knew from the moment of joining that it would be an octopus involved, but I could not figure out how to work both Frida & the octopus so that they didn't looked too odd. I think I started over 2 or 3 times. I would either draw the octopus and couldn't work Frida in OR I would figure out Frida and could not draw the octopus right. But in the end I was happy and hoped you would too. Thanks bunches for the awesome rating my friend! Hugs â™¥
Comment: LOVE the collage, Paige!! The patterned cello paper really gave the art dimension and it almost took on a
rennaisance feel. Thank you for sharing your artwork with me...it's a real treasure to add to my growing Frida collection:)
Response: I almost couldn't figure out what you meant, but then I remembered the cello paper you were referring to that I wrapped it in. : ) I was pleased with hos it turned out, I love working collages. I am glad you liked it. Thanks for the great rating.
Comment: I lOvE the ATC you sent! Did you photocopy the text onto that background, or did you draw and hand color those checkers? They look great, and I love the glitter, especially on the sides - I'm going to have to use that, I hadn't even thought of putting it there - lol! Thanks so very much!! â™¥
Response: Oh wow, for some reason I was so worried about these ATCs. I had never done "Altered Text" before. It was a lot of fun, but I think I started over 4 times. Anyway, I hand drew all the back ground, I didn't photcopy it. : )
I am so glad that you like it and thank you for the wonderful rating. : )
Comment: Hey you can be paired up with me anytime. I love, love the postalettes. You spurred some ideas for me to finish mine up. The colors are fantastic and I loved the colorful writing sides. They look so fun to use. Thank you.
Response: OOOO I am so glad you liked them. I made me some as well...in fact I sent one off just the other day. : ) Thanks for the awesome rating. Hugs my friend. â™¥
Comment: WOW WOW WOW, I love her even more in person! Love how you made her hair! Her face is so cute too and great materials used! Thank you, feel free to make more now for your other "Frida" friends :)) And another super WOW for all the great stickers! You almost made me glad my partner flaked LOL They're awesome! I will post you as the "angel" on my page but wanted to include it here for all to see! Thanks so much Paige for a fun swap! Hope you like what I made you! You should get them soon! Hope we can swap again sometime! Hugssssssssss
Response: YAY!!! I love making my swap partners happy. The hair was actually the fun part of making the doll. You are also very welcome for the angel package. I made sure to follow the swap requirements so you would feel better about being flaked on. BTW - You have become so much more than a mere swap partner. You taught me a "life lesson" and I will forever be grateful for that.
I agree we should swap again soon. Oh and thanks for the awesome rating. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Love my Faberge Egg. Thank you. The metal piece at the bottom is really cool. Is it a special hinge of some kind?
Response: I am glad that you liked the egg. I used an actual Faberge Egg for the design details. The metal piece at the bottom is actually a very thin "roundish" embellishment that I folded in half. Anyway,,,Thank You for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: OMW! Where to start! The box is gorgeous! The drawers slider easily too. What did you make it from and did you use a die? Anyway, I love everything you included in 'my' drawers. I don't think anyone has ever read my profile so thoroughly! And everything in your drawer is awesome too as I also love the beach! I even love how you packaged it! At first I assumed someone sent a RAK for one of my kids but this was much better! cute card and cool handwriting. Thanks so much and for hosting too. Best wishes
Response: You are very welcome. I made it from actual 32 count match boxes. Then cover and folded with the help of a bone folder. I am really glad that you liked all the goodies inside...it was a fun swap. Thank you for joining and thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: I was doing the Snoopy dance of joy when I opened this box of fabulosity! You hit everything perfectly, especially the clay, as I have been jonesing for some. The fabric will be perfect for some projects I have planned, as will the trinkets and beads. And I can't wait to craft some wonderfulness with the Tim Holtz bottles. I have wanted the book for what seems like forever and am thrilled to finally have it on my bookshelf. There was so much in this package, I am overwhelmed. I am having a blast working on your part, so glad you suggested the swap! Stopping before this becomes a novella on your profile page..... THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
Response: whoo whoo! I am so so glad that you like everything. Your profile is so perfect for doing profile swaps easy peasy and it gave me yet another excuse (like I needed one) to go to Hobby Lobby. : ) Thanks bunches for the awesome rating. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Guess what came today?!? Thanks so much for the cool twinchies - love them all, especially the monogrammed one but the one with the seahorse and shells beads might be my favorite - thanks again!
Response: I am so glad you liked them. And I had a sneaky feeling you might like the one with the "bubbles"... : ) Anyway thank you so much for the â™¥.
Comment: You did a great job on this Goblin ATC! This is one of my favorite swaps received to date. I love the look of the pin and the glossy stuff you used to raise some of his features. He will make a fine General in my ATC goblin army :)
Response: YAY!!! I am glad you liked it. I love when I have no rules and can just do what-ever I want with an ATC! Thanks for the wonderful rating, â™¥
Comment: Love the glitter and citrus colours! I am a fruits and veggies freak too, and often go for days eating vegetarian without even realizing it. lol Did you know that Americans eat more bananas than any other fruit? Thx for the great card! Hugs, Terry (";)
Response: Oh I am glad you liked it. I had fun with that card and actual had to pry the envie out of my own hands. LOL I didn't know that about bananas, but I know I have to contribute to that statistic 3 fold. Thanks for the â™¥ and for being you!
Comment: OH MY Paige!!! I absolutely love what you sent!!! The butterfly on the mb was amazing!! Loving all the smalls inside! Got the package while Sami was at school. So tempted to peek inside hers..lol. Will wait till she gets home. Wish I could add more hearts and stars! Thank you so much!
Response: LOL...I am very glad you liked everything. And I hope that Sami likes her as well. : )
Response: :) Thank you so much. I received mine yesterday from my partner. She had packaged it so beautifully I didn't want to open it. LOL Anyway I am glad you like it and the earrings. (You have got be to tired of getting my matchboxes though. Seems like you are always stuck with me. O_o
Comment: Love it! I calls these movies the John Hughes trilogy, b/c they are my three favorites of his. Thanks again!
And of course, love the "extras" (((Taco)))
Response: LOL...I love those movies also...I think my fav would have to be The Breakfast Club. (And you know I couldn't not send you something that "sparkled". Hugs my friend and thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Love it! <3 <3 I love octopodes too my favourite creatures! are the raised areas made using embossing ink? It's something that's very hard to get here but I might have to go on a super hunt the effect is lovely!
Response: Oh Thank You so much for the wonderful rating and I am very glad you liked the ATC. The raised area (on the brain) was made by using something called "Liquid Glass". It is a clear "gel" that you add where you want texture. I love it!!! The fish was done with embossing powders. : )
Comment: Dear Paige, it was fun to read your journal. I learnt some new things about you I didn't know already. :) And I love the way you have put it together. Very cool. :) And, of course, thanks for thingies you've sent along. Much appreciated :)
PS. There was one thing that was missing in whole thing... you know what? Starts with g and ends with r! :P
Response: I am very glad that you like the journal...but you have me totally confused as to what is missing... O_o 6 Mar 2012 - to anyone wondering what was missing...GLITTER. LOL
Comment: LOVE IT!!! I just adore the envie and I am already thinking about stealing the pattern. I love how it was sent in the clear bag, great presentation. The decoration is great, well done. Thank you so much for a beautiful piece of artwork and the extras and for just being a great partner. Hugs & 100 Hearts, Mona
Response: You are very very welcome. I am please that you are happy with it. I love making mail-art. And yes, the plastic prevents the postmarks from destroying the envie...(if you do it though, remember the stamps must always go on the plastic outside cover.) Thanks for the awesome rating. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Wow! This must be my lucky day. I recieved a fantastic dragon atc, and a wonderful dragon match box. This must mean I'm in for a great "Year of the dragon" Thank you, I love them both.
Response: That was a really fun swap, I found the dragon material at our fbric store it was black/white only I painted it in to give it depth. Anyway thank you for the awesome rating and Happy Year of the Dragon. : )
Comment: All I can say is WOW!!! You went far above and beyond what was agreed upon...not only peach jam but peach syrup! And all that lovely fabric!Wow! And the zentangle book! How did you know I always wanted that one? And the handmade envies! Wow thank you so much! It truly put a huge smile on my face, thank you for your generosity! <3
Response: You are very welcomed my dear. I loved putting everything together for you. â™¥â™¥â™¥ Thanks for the wonderful rating.
Comment: Absolutely stunning. This made my entire day - and the tuck ins were too much. The cards are spectacular and really? Stickles? You spoil me rotten my heart of hearts. xoxo
Response: Oh Phe I am so glad you liked it. It was fun to make because I love ocean stuff too. And I am glad you like the tuck-ins too. The stickles I sent are my absolute favorites! Thats for teh great rating. I love you bunches. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I love them. Two....and they are both fantastic. I can't decide which I like more either. Thank you so much for such beautiful ones. I love the details. The goodies inside are great, and I will definitely use them as well. I want a heart to the nth option, because you deserve lots more.
Response: wooo wooo....I am glad you got them and glad you like them! hugs my friend! And thanks for the great rating. â™¥â™¥
Comment: They are awesome! Love them! I never tried to paint my APC because i was afraid the paint would peel, but the two you painted look fantastic. What is the black gloss on the fish? Is it nailpolish? Thank you very much for these great APCs!
Response: I am so glad you liked them. I slightly sanded the cards before painting them and then let them really dry before working the rest of the card. The "black gloss" isn't actually black. I finished the fish with water color pencils and then put "Liquid Glass" over the black parts. Liquid Glass is actually a clear arcyrlic substance that makes everything "3D". You could trade for some with @Leashah...she sells it. It is awesome. And thank you for the great rating. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thank you for a lovely matchbox and custom card ;-) The Pied Piper has never done it for me either .. he always kinda creeped me out. XO, Miranda
Response: I am very happy that you like it. I was a bit nervous, because it was not very glittery and fancy, but I thought it worked so well. Most of the time I have no idea in mind how something will turn out until I am finished. Thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥

Response: I am very glad you liked everything. And I am glad your daughter did as well. Reuse the envies all you want... :) Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: I absolutely LOVE everything you sent! Truly! You definitely had me pegged, that's for sure. The cards, the envies, the itty bitty envies and cards! The stickers, the glitter, all of it was absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much, my dear friend. I really needed a little bit of cheer and your sweet package did the trick. Thank you so much for the obvious care you took in preparing it for me. I loved all the wrappings, too. Thank you and I'm so happy to see that little octi stamp I sent is being put to so much use!

Response: Oh wow...I didn't even realize this wasn't rated yet. Thank You so much and I wish you a wonderful new Years!
Comment: Paige, thanks for all the wonderful and cute gifties! I especially needed the gift tags! We were up Christmas Eve with my daughter and I going through them and trying to figure out if anyone was "worthy" of getting one of them on their gift!
Response: You are very welcome...I hope your Christmas was wonderful and I hope that you have a beautiful New Years. â™¥
Comment: OMG OMG OMG!!!
Wasnâ€™t expecting that!!! My mouth literally dropped the whole process of opening the Package!!! The ATC is beautiful and the extras are absolutely wonderful :)
I didnâ€™t know such wonderful packages exist!
It really wormed my hurt and I can feel a lot of love and effort coming from that package. Thx so so mach!
Response: YAY...I am so glad that you liked it. I love using those little micro beads. (Almost as much as I love glitter, but not nearly as much as I love Johnny Depp. :P Anyway, thank you for a wonderful swap & we will have to have another after all the holiday hoopla is over here. Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thank you soooo much for the zombie christmas card!! I love it!! I'd give ya a million hearts if I could! Haha Ya gotta love the zombie!!
Response: I am glad you liked it. I showed it to my DH and he thought I was nuts. I said I have a feeling she'll like it. And it was lots of fun to make Christmas Zombies....:P Thank you for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful inchies, Paige. They are adorable (and shiny!) The card is awfully cute too - I see it's one you rec'd from @toothteri. But I love how you personalized it inside for me!
Response: I am so happy that you liked the inchies. They got to you pretty fast considering. Yes, toothteri sent me some cards and I always give credit to the originator. : ) And yes, the inchies are shiny...LOL, I love glitter! and you. â™¥ Thank you for the great rating.
Comment: Oh what a cool idea. I love the pocket in the card. Allison has dibs on the paperclip. At least she says she does. I love the rolo. I'm finishing mine up tomorrow. I love the color challenge mixed in. Thank you for such a festive rolo and a fun swap.
Response: Wow..that got there super fast. : ) Anyway I am glad you liked it. (As I said I do have an obsession with glitter. LOL. Thanks so much for the wonderful rating & most of all for being a wonderful person! â™¥
Comment: Paige, thank you for the wonderful pin-up keychain. It's just beautiful. I'm going to attach it to my wallet so I see it all the time! Loved your envie and card, too, especially the octopus stamp. Love them cephalopods much!! Kathy
Response: YAY...I am so glad that you liked it. I had a lot of fun makings it. :) Oh and I love Octopus...they are my favorites. I put that stamp on everything. Thanks for the wonderful rating and the â™¥.
Comment: I love the inchies you made! Thank you so much! And the lovely card with the presentation of the inchies is too cute :)

Comment: The resend arrived today! Yaay! =) And now I know why the cats are circling me like sharks, they could smell those treats the second the box came in the house ;P
Response: LOLOL.....YAY! I am soooo happy. (I actually like the stuff in the resend better because they are more personal, although if the original ever shows up, there are some really cool stuff in it also...Thank you so very much for your patience! â™¥â™¥â™¥ oh and my cats were wondering why I wasn't opening the package and giving them the treats. They looked at me like I was crazy.
Comment: she arrived!!! her hair is just stunning. her tail fell off during her trip, but that's an easy fix.... I had a sandwich with Southern Peach Jam this morning, which tasted yummy, and I locked myself in the bathroom way to long with that lovely book of yours!!! thank you so much Paige! what a lovely swap!
Response: I am so sorry about the tail...:( I was so worried about the crazy curly hair that I didn't attach the tail as well as I should have. But I am so very happy you enjoyed it all. â™¥â™¥â™¥ Hugs to you!!! and thanks for the rating. : )
Comment: Thank you for the awesome package! I love the inchie, twinchie and ATC! You did a great job - this was a really fun swap!
Response: Wow...I just realized I never commented to your rating although I could have sworn I did. I am really really glad you liked the POTC stuff...I had alot of fun making them for you (once I got past the mental block LOL)..â™¥
Comment: Where do I start? With the presentation (candy cane striped paper and *pink* bubble wrap) or the fact that stuff was spilling out because this pocket booklet was stuffed to the gills or the (extra) honking big (beautiful) Christmas tree ornament nativity scene? Or should I start with my favourite thing? Well that would be hard, since I have at least 3 favourite things - in no particular order, the above-mentioned Christmas tree ornament, the teeny tiny oh so adorable where on earth did you get it nativity set, or the plaque with 2 angels on it that you made just for me. One blonde, one brunette - reminds me of my sister and me. There's so much here that I can use and love, thank you a dozen times over!
Response: YAY! I am very glad you enjoyed it. I was positively one of the "funner" swaps I've done in a long time. It may have been because you ended up as my partner that I went a tiny bit over board. LOL...â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥ Thanks for being YOU!
Comment: So excited to get your goodies today-the lovely packaging just put mine to shame! The open first [with the poem] has Pat and I so curious! Cannot wait!!!
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful gifts-the cards, tags, wreath, cute button tin so far. I am saving a few choice goodies for Christmas day because we are celebrating Boxing day and I need something to look forward to! I love it all-thank you for being a great swap partner! Merry Christmas!
Response: LOL....I did have alot of fun wrapping everything...And the little bags I used were easy peasy....I am looking forward to opening everything as well. Thanks for the great rating â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I love the way you wrapped your packages! Very creative!!! Can't wait to open them! Thank you very much!
Hugs and hearts...pat
Love everything! How to you get your blanket stitching soooo perfect!!!
Response: YAY...I am so very glad you like the wrapping. It was fun...Enjoy. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I LOVE your profile too Paige! And yes, we do have a lot in common (ok, I won't eat your cats! :D) We should do a private swap sometimes if you like. A pet octopus, what a great idea. But (sigh) we could never give them the freedom that they need. It's a great thought though. :-)
Response: Thanks so much for not eating my cats...I really have researched owning a small dime to quarter size octopus...but they are illegal to own here (unless you have taken vet courses) & my DH said he is NOT taking an octopus for a walk. LOL Private swap sounds wonderful as soon as some things clear off my dash. Take care and thanks for the â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun I just had unwrapping my mummy! I was so excited to find the next piece that I just tore into him. What a great swap this was and the perfect partner for making me a kid again! Hugs & 100 Hearts, Mona
Response: : ) I had ALOT of fun making that mummy and I am very glad that you had fun opening it. : ) Thanks so much for the â™¥
Comment: I got throughly spoilt! Ponies and cephalopods and Poe, oh my! xxxx
Response: OOO I am so happy. I love that Poe book, to me the fact that it was old and had that "ancient book smell" is so soothing. And yea I am a cephalopod junkie (I think in my former life I had 8 arms). And I thought you would like the pony (I hope you didn't have that one, but if you did please feel free to offer it as a trade for one that you don't have. Thanks for the wonderful rating. â™¥
Comment: Paige, I could not be happier with my package! My friend has agreed to sew the dottee together on her machine and I can do all the hand work.THANK YOU!!! You were very generous with supplies and everything was wrapped so cute. And the dottee you made just for me...adorable!! I have to mention the really cool coffin box too - I love it! You are awesome! =) Happy Halloween!
Response: YAY! I am so glad that you like it. It was fun making it and the dottee was fun as well. Thank you so much for the wonderful rating. Happy Halloween to you as well. :)
Comment: I love the ba card! Love all of the glitter on the pumpkin girl!
Response: YAY...I love GLITTER...I am so glad you liked the card. I read your profile and thought you would like it, but then I always get nervous while I am finishing them up. TY so much for the rating. : )
Response: WOW that got there fast. It was a little tough trying to keep it in a "flat" package. There was more things I wanted to add, but I tried to follow the "flat profile" theme... LOL... I am glad you liked it.
Comment: "Two gators lay chatting on a log; their bellies were full from what I thought was a meal of a hog. But soon I relaxed, for no hog met his maker. The gators had dined on tossed salad, rolls and a Swap-bot Flaker."
Absolutely hilarious - I love it! Thx! Terry (";)
Response: YAY...I had lots of fun making that. And I am very glad you liked it. Thanks for the great rating as well.
Comment: Taco, Taco, Taco! Woooo Whoo! Perfect people make for an awesome swap. Needed you for this swap cause you were PERFECT! Great choices of fibers. We got a real mix going here. Once we get them all we need pictures to post to show all them lookie loos what they missed out on! Thanks so much for swapping with me!
Response: TY so much. It was a lot of fun hunting for different types of strings and fibers. I am really looking forward to the finished product as well. And TY for the heart. : )
Comment: Was a lovely long letter, presented so well, just how I'd expect to find it in a book. Very well written!
Response: LOL...I am glad you liked the letter. Having an English background and Journalism helped a lot, plus it was a lot of fun to pretend to be someone else for a change. (if it would have been a math swap...forget it).
Comment: Oh Paige - these inchies are gorgeous :) I cannot choose a favourite - they are all so pretty. It was an explosion of awesome green things - teehee. Thank you for a great swap. I also absolutely love your zentangle thingie with the swap details. Skills!
Response: I am very glad you liked the inchies...as well as the little zentangle thingie (LOL). I LOVE using those little microbeads...but I love all shiny stuff. Thanks for the rating. You rock!!!
Comment: Awwww! This was soo sweeet! I've wanted this book for a LONG time and you got for me! And of course I love the bookmark! Looks like something Captn' Jack Sparrow would have! Oh much hugs! You are wonderful!
Response: You are completely welcomed. I am a bit of an octopus freak, so as I was making the bookmark...it kinda just ended up that way. LOL. Be sure to remove the book from wishpot or you could end up with several. Thanks for the great rating too.
Comment: What a wonderful and huge yarn ball! I had so much fun unwrapping it! And I love the pink fabric and the thick yarn on the inside. The flowers on the outside are beautiful! I'll definitely use everything you sent. Another great swap for us! I hope you like mine, too!
Response: LOL...YAY!!! I am sooo glad. I thought you would like the yarn I chose on the inside...and the yarn on the outside is good for at least large one washcloth...Hugs Hugs Hugs!!!
Comment: oh PAIGE!!! This is the most super, awesome, fantabulous, beautiful, cool, lovely clever, useful pin cushion I have EVER gotten!! And how generous to stock it with scissors and new pins!! Thank you so so very much.. it's even perfect for when I crochet - I can pop a couple crochet hooks in one "cubby" and cart it around with me around the house!!!! This def deserves a million hearts!!!
Response: LOL...I am very glad you liked it. I kept trying to explain to Terry (my husband) what I was going to do with the "drawer" and until I finished it, he just could not understand how I was going to turn it into a pin-cushion. LOL...But TY for much for the kind words and the super rating! You are AWESOME!!!
Comment: Paige, tthanks so much for a BRILLIANT package; the individual wrappings with little notes were almost too pretty to open :o)
I love everything that you have sent and it was so generous of you to send so much.. I'm blown away! I wish I could give more than one heart.. you deserve many of them :o)
Once again, thank you for a very special and much appreciated package,
Response: It was my pleasure. I love swaps like that. I am very glad you liked everything and thank you so much for the wonderful comments and the heart! : )
Comment: Thank yo so much for the lap blanket, postcards and map! What a wonderful package!!! My spare bedroom is full of bears. Even though it is 92 degrees, I've got the ac on, a ceiling fan and another fan blowing one me, so I have the blanket in my lap. You did such a great job. If I can figure out how you did it, I may make some of these for my grandkids. The postcards are great too. I wish I could get my yard to look like the Jekyll Island Hotel. The Go Green pc is neat. I've never seen one like that before. The base you work at looks huge. Thanks again for everything! Darla (theirmimi)
Response: You are most welcome. The blankets are alot of fun (and quite easy) to make. And yes Jekyll is beautiful (except right now they are "remodeling a lot of it...construction everywhere). I am glad you liked the PCs. Oh and yes...the base is HUGE. We maintaining the planes/software is our mission. Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: LOVE IT! The jelly fish are so funny - my favorite one is on the back with the really bushy eyebrows! And of course all the bubbles are great! Thank you for such a cute envelope - now, what do I do with it? What do you do with the ones you receive? Thanks again - you did a fantastic job!
Response: LOLOL...I Don't exactly know what to do with it as I haven't received one yet. More than likely I will stick mine with my post cards, but my post cards are randomly stuck in open spots on my bulletin board. I am glad you like it though! <3
Comment: Yay! I rec'd the Dotee Doll today and I love it. Cute! She is a keeper. I give my dolls a personality too-lol. The person that I send to is getting a pink velvet cat with an attitude. I hope she likes cats, but only mentions liking pink. Thanks so much :) :)
Response: Oh I am soooo glad you liked her and think she is a keeper. I can't believe how fast she got to you. wow!...Anyway I really had a lot of fun making her and messing with all her hair. : ) <3
Comment: Loved your letter. Totally understand the attention span and crochet thing. I've never finished a blanket either. Good luck with the move. You'll probably find all sorts of things you want to play with when you pack.
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the letter. I really just wish that my camera had worked so that I could have included the pictures. Anyway thanks for the heart! Take care.
Comment: Thank you for all my Blue goodies. I'll make sure to pass on the blue envie =)
Response: U R welcome. I hope u are able to put it 2 good use. And if u remember when u pass the blue envie on, add a note 4 them 2 do the same...LOL...wonder how far that little blue elephant could go???
Comment: I loved your long letter and the beautiful stationary. I had to laugh when you mentioned problems with knitting needles. I'm the same way. I'd lose and eye for sure! LOL!
Response: I am glad you liked it, I was so upset because I really had made pictures of my craft room and then my printer and camera phone quit "speaking" whatever the heck that means...LOL...Thanks so much for the rating and the <3
Comment: OHHHH PAIGE!!!! You sent me such a WONDERFUL PACKAGE!! You really know how to make my artsy muse happy!! all the awesome paper, adorable whimsey jar, stickers, brads, beads, AND THEN that adorable pencil case of goodies for my kiddos.. You really are a sweet and generous swapper and I am so happy to swap with you.. I am going to start working on your zentangle next and I hope you will be as pleased!! I may even use the paper and pens you sent me :-) I love how small my own little pen case is and PERFECT for toting supplies in my purse.. you truly deserve a gazillion hearts!! ((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))
Response: YAY!!! I am so glad you liked everything. I had alot of fun gathering the items and making the whimsey jars and things for you...well except for trying to get the box to work for me. LOL...Thanks for the kind words and for the <3 ((((HUGS)))) back to you as well
Comment: Ok again very nice. Where do you come up with these ideas. I want to know how these were made? Great!
Response: Believe it or not I believe in simplicity. The ideas are a lot easier than they look. Plus they are fun...any technique that feels like work after the first couple of tries, gets thrown in the trash. But thank you again for the compliments.
Comment: ONG Paige I would have kept that card also!That is absolutely beautiful. I'd say they both are but you hit the nail on the head with that one for sure There are no words to describe it. TYVM I am going to PM you about getting your 2 letters today.
Response: LOL...It was tempting to keep it. Anyway I am very glad you like the cards. : )

Comment: Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for the huge package you sent! We cannot wait to get stuck in to all the lovely pop tarts! Thank you for the extra goodies and thank you so much for swapping with me! Xo

Comment: Wow! So many wonderful things in that package, where do I start! You outdid yourself! I love the wonderful beads, the inks and embossing powder, and everything! Anytime you want another swap, for anything at all, just let me know!
