Comment: I love it! I always admire those who can do watercolour because watercolour hates me! Thanks for the extras too! Good to know about the outlining...my next one I host I will allow outlining in ink. I don't think it would hinder the painting in any way. Thanks for the insight!
Comment: thank you so much for the beautifull ATC I really like how it turned out. I always make sketches before transferring it on the paper I wil make the original piece on. And those sketches don't always turn out the way I had it in my head immediately. But I keep practicing and use the sketch I like the most for the original work. And doesn't matter it was a little bit later, life happens I know everything about it unfortunately.
Comment: Oh wow, I thought this was a collage at first since it was so beautifully done, but then I realized it was hand drawn! Thank you so much, it's a gorgeous piece of art! <3 (The way you do flowers is so cute!)
Comment: Your card is SO cute. It looks like the coordinator likes to cost fox-hybrid swaps and I think that's easier yet more creative than unicorns, so I'm probably going to keep signing up! I now have TWO atc cards from you and they are both cute! the little details on your fox' fins are the silver accents are great. still loving that high-contrast color theory!
Comment: I'm loving this ATC! Your little Merfox has the most adorable eyes, and now, I gladly hold a spot for him in my collection! :) Thank you so much! (Not to mention your adorable card you sent him in!)
Comment: Thank you very much for the sheep atc, you are right they do have it lucky at this time of year and have fluffy butts to keep them warm. I loved the extra swapbot mail postcard. That is amazing. Going on the front cover of my postcard collection.
Comment: I LIKE this card. It's quirky and the textures and color theory is solid. It's kind of the coolest ATC card I've gotten in a few years! I feel encouraged to do my best on all ATC trades even more so than before! ALso love the the Information Stamp on the back! You must tell me where I might obtain such a thing for myself.
Comment: OH MY GOODNESS, your letter and ATC made me laugh and smile! You were not alone with the 'in bed' thing, my family did that as well! I LOVE your ATC and the stamp you have for the back is SO snazzy! Thank you for such a delightful swap!
Comment: Despite your concurring problems with your house building-it turned out great in the end! Very nice watercolor background-I am slowly trying to teach my self water coloring-the whimsical not stay in the lines kind!
Comment: I just about died from the cuteness of this ATC. I'm obsessed with corgis and their adorable bread-butts. Thank you so much for this ATC. It's nice to see a hand drawn piece of art every now and then in the swaps I host. <3
Comment: I feel like I did not do this rating justice before so.... here we go.... great hand work. I have a hard time with all the little details I try to do BUT you it is all fabulous.I love the gold leaves.Is it a zentagle or just wonderful doodling! regardless it is fabulous. I hope to continue to see you in future swaps too!!! Thank you
Comment: Kaci such a I love my Owl ATC it is so darn cute. I really like the background too. I have so much to learn as a newbie. Your beautiful ATC encourages me. It was delightful from the envie to the note - such pretty paper. AND get out about the Owls!!!!!!! Mt husband is a UPS driver and he also was attacked by an owl. Thank goodness he had his hat on, right?! I would love to hear them hooting early in the morning !!
Comment: Hello dyp, thank you very much for the cute ATC :) Also thank you for the nice little extras. I like each of them, especially the note card you use to hold the package together. It's Marjolein Bastin's, I saw a few cross stitch kits from her paintings and I love them lots. It is really nice, what you did to the baby opposum. I hope they will grow healthy and happy. Take care and have a nice day :)
Comment: Ok, let me first say your ATC made me silent for a few minutes... I couldn't stop laughing once I read the title of it because I was like is that a HOTDOG?! Seriously?! You sent me a "greasy wiener"? It looks so serious like it belongs in an art gallery, I absolutely love it and put it in the front of my 2018 ATC binder. (I made a new one every year) You made my day, thank you for taking kawaii to a different level and for the extras. I hope I get you as a partner again, lol. <3
Comment: Lol! I loved hearing about you husband's scary installation of the television. I hope it turned out well. My husband used to scare me with his home projects, but he's gotten pretty good at being "handy." Thanks!
Comment: I love the giraffe post card. Thank you! You were watching a Netflix show about a boy with Asperger's. My son is on the spectrum. What was the show you were watching? I think I'd like to watch it!
Response: Atypical. It is great. A bit naughty at times but awesome.
Comment: Apparently, research has proven that this IS true, but you cannot SEE them, as they are internal. Hope you figure it out for yourself, since The hubs wont help. Perhaps he is just is afraid of a "Size issue". LOL, J/k. TY for the swap!
Comment: I am glad that you enjoy the swaps! I love both of the ATCs that you have sent (though you only had to send one) but the one with the acrylic background is awesome! Happy Halloween!
Also, the Swap-Bot postcard is freaking AMAZING!! I am going to keep it FOREVER!
Comment: It's so great! I never get hand drawn stuff and it makes me sad, but this more than makes up for those times! Thank you so much! I also had no idea that they had banana tic tacs... I'll have to hit up some of my European friends.
Comment: Wow I love these cards..The flower is perfect..The Blue/purple/green is my favorite, not only are these my favorite colors but the design is amazing..Very well done, Great extras, always in need of more sleeves,,,Thank you...As for as Swap-Bot Originals, I think that just means we are all old..lol..
Comment: Thank you for the Lovely Black and white ATC (I dont know what kind of ink you used but it looks cool) and for the extra ATC as well, it is totally adorable and I love it! Thank you very much for your nice note too :) It makes me happy to know that others enjoy my art as well :D <3 <3 <3
Comment: Thank you for both of the awesome ATC's! I was just organizing my binder last night and wondering if I needed a "food with faces" page, your cute little ice cream guy put me over the edge! I guess I'll be reorganizing again soon (:
ETA: I got another ATC from you! I am not sure if you accidentally sent twice or if I am just very special, but thank you for the beautiful flower ATC. lol, I will not google "husband being a bitch" ;)
Comment: Hi Kaci
That has got to be the best zentangle I have ever seen! Your work is so fine and even and tiny...love, love it and will not swap it on to anyone, keeping it for myself. Love the hears and the news from your life...thank you so much
Comment: My dear Kaci, you are so very talented. I love both atcs, can't pick a favorite. I also love the little raindrop. Is it a shrinky dink? I am going to put it in my cubicle at work. It made me smile. I hope I get to be your partner again!
Comment: Thanks for the pretty ATC Kaci. Your zentangle is CRAZY intricate!! Thank you for the long note too, I hope you get out to Hawaii someday. :-) i HATE the winter and even I miss autumn sometimes. But you'd be surprised, we definitely have seasons.
Comment: Kaci, awesome ATC! I think it's so, so pretty!!! Thank you! I just love the butterfly! And thank you for the extra piggy bank ATC...it's my first pig card. You and TC have really inspired me to branch out and try new things. I hope we swap together again soon!
Comment: Love your ATC and your letter. It was fun to hear how you were inspired and I watched the same PBS special. I have added it to my Valentine decorations. Thank you. Also the vellum heart are lovely, not sure if you made them but they are fun
Comment: Ohhhh...I LOVE the orca ATC you made. It is so awesome! Everything about it really appeals to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! The crocheted hearts are so sweet. Did you make those too? Thank you again for another awesome swap!
Comment: I love the elephant ATC you made. The tiny little zentangle patterns on the elephants head & back is amazing! Thank you for the bookmark & stickers too. They are adorable. You're a great swap partner!!
Comment: Thank you Kaci for the thoughtful envelope of cuteness. I loved everything you sent! LOVE the vintage sticker sheets, my favorite is your hand drawn stickers and tags. What kind of pen did you use to outline your beaver drawing? It looks embossed, so cool. Is it Sakura souffle pen?
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! I actually did need some 2-ply at the moment, it's too cold out for my nose. It's like a faucet! The little envie you sent is too cute! (won't ever use it, just keep it forever and look at it xD) And the kisses stamp folder is adorable! -going in my ever so vastly growing stamp collection-Thanks so much Kaci!! -also saving the stamps from the envelope because I don't have those yet! :D
Comment: Hello neighbor, I am very happy that you didn't continue to add to the Heart ATC it is beautiful as is. Happy Art Accidents :) , Thank you for a sweet package the extra hearts and the nice note.
Comment: Thank you so much. Gabe was beyond thrilled with his mail. I loved reading the letter from Lillea to him. I have wrote a lot of mommy letters from him but never have read a mommy wrote letter before. So cute!
Comment: I love the details in your mermaids tail and the part about long hair on mermaids made me laugh because its very true. swimming with all of that hair would be a mess! no wonder Ariel tried to brush hers with a fork!! thank you for the extras too! :D
Comment: Another amazing ATC by dyp! Thank you so much for such a heartfelt swap! Now that you have told me that you are an henna artist, I can totally see the influence in your work! I would never have the patience with either the art or the brides..lol! Keep up the awesome and happy new year!
Comment: Kaci! Gorgeous ATC. Just Beautiful. Also, cool zentangled heart and fancy handwritten "hello verns". I LOVE the other stuff too. Especially the fortune teller ephemera. Where did you find it? I want to buy some. I am a tiny bit sad because both sides of the envelope were wide open, not torn but almost as if they just came apart on their own or sliced with a blade. It makes me sad because it makes we wonder if any more yummy ephemera got lost in the shuffle. *sniff*. You made this a very fun swap! I am delighted with what did make it, for sure.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome Santa. I appreciate letting me know what you used on the Santa. It always gives me ideas about how to use supplies. He is just adorable. Thanks for the extras! I will look for you at the next KC Renn Faire! Hugs, Mona
Comment: Thanks Kaci. I was so busy showing everyone I forgot to rate. Laura wanted to rush out and buy shaving cream to make the backgrounds. Thanks for your kind comments re fb photos. Its been a busy year and being summer it is a busy henna time. Have a good one.
Comment: In most cases I wait till Christmas when there is note like that, but sometimes something tells me not to wait, and this time that something did not leave me until I opened your envelope :) I hope you won't be angry.
I am very happy to meet you, watched your henna drawings, they are so perfect and so beautiful, I admire this ancient Indian type of art and people who make it.
Your ATC is very nice, i love these soft colors.
These tiny stickers - I was looking for such ones, they are perfect decoration for greeting cards and postcards.
So, great Thanks for all your gifts.
You won't believe, I also have an idea to make something decorated for people to find. I thing such finding can make someone's day and through this can happen something very good and kind. I imagined tiny handmade magnets attached on some cars, unknown for me or decorated clothespins in different places :) Thank you for encouragement, it's pleasant to feel I'm not alone :)
Wish you all the best.
Comment: Kaci - I got my Heart ATC in the mail yesterday and it's wonderful! Did you draw and paint it? Wow! I wish I had the talent to do something like this. And thank you also for the Zentangle ATC you included. I have a Zentagle kit but have not had it out in a long time - this makes me want to haul it out and work with it! Thanks for trading with me!! Laurie
Comment: HI Kaci! I love the geometric act that I received from you today! Its cool! Thanks for the extras! I'm always happy to swap with an ambassador of swapbot! I really liked this theme swap!
Comment: WOW! You did a great job drawing the seashell. I had to look a second time to see that. Thanks so much for the extra one as well. And the seashore card! What an extra treat. You are so kind. I hope you get to the ocean some day.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful cards. My plan is to take them to my local Starbucks and put them on a table next to the "artist wall". Then I will take a picture of them, and wait across the room until someone picks them up. I will send you a picture when I accomplish my goal.
Comment: Beautiful Zentangled flower (Print??)
thank you for extras also!
Response: Hee hee, hand drawn! You thought it was a print? Wow! What a compliment! You just made my day squeee! I use Micron pens and zig markers. I debated coloring it but I loved the dynamic the orange and black created. I think it was 2 hours of drawing time, give or take.
Comment: OMG Kaci! I LOOOOVVVEEEE this ATC so much! It is so beautiful! I really appreciate you taking the time to read my profile, and send me something so personal. This is definitely my favorite. Thank you again! :)
Response: I can not tell you how much I enjoyed drawing it. I was a bit sad when it was finished :-)
Comment: OH MY GOSH! I cannot believe you drew that motorcyle & put Meme on it! You are very talented. I can't wait to show this to all my friends. This is the best ATC I have ever gotten. I will display it proudly in my craft room. Thank you so much! Love the little tags, too.
Response: Lol I am so glad you love it. You almost did not get it, I almost kept it. Hahaha. I put Meme on it so I would send it. I will probably never be able to draw another one like it again. :) it was so awesome, I can't even believe I did it. Lol
Comment: â˜º Thanks for your two ATCs. LOL about not liking the combo of the patterns. I do like how they worked together (on yours and on mine) but didn't sign up for the 2nd challenge as I didn't like the combo of those three!
Comment: Thank you for the very nice stocking tangles. I have only been doing these for a few months and it is so inspiring to me to see what others do.These deserve more than one heart. Love them.
Response: Awwww you made my beeper warm :) I am very new to tangling... I think I just do doodles with patterns, but it makes me happy and it's close enough hahaha :) I so loved the curly toed stocking, I had a hard time parting with it. It was so balanced and I couldn't meddle it up with a background. I think it is easily one of my favorites. So glad it has a home with you :)
Comment: Hey Kaci, thanks for the ATC, it's great..this was such a hard swap for me too..!I would love the name of it, maybe I can find it online, at the museum's webpage or something! It's a disturbing and lovely image.
