fluffyjunk rated for Totally Inappropriate "A" ATC on Jul 25, 2018
Comment: "Cheap Anal"... Well... If that isn`t inappropriate...! The drawing is hilarious!!! :D Thank you so much...! And I really like how you decorated the envie - so cute! :)
Response: haha. glad you liked it!!!
Comment: Thank you for the private swap and for sending way more than we had agreed on. While everything sent is something I can use, I have had to put it all in a few gallon-size zip lock bags with dryer sheets due to a very strong cigarette smoke smell. I used to smoke (smoke free for 2 1/2 years) so I understand that it is something that is difficult to avoid sometimes, and also something that is undetectable to a smoker or those who live with smokers. I'm hoping that a few days to a week in bags with dryer sheets will freshen everything up. Perhaps a small blurb on your profile letting other potential swappers know that this may arise would be something worth considering. Thanks again & happy swapping.
Response: UPDATE.. TAINTED ITEMS HAVE BEEN THROWN OUT! Starting my collection anew. That's my fault, we have every packed up for a potential move and everything is stored in the smoking room down stairs in plastic totes. I didn't even think of that. I'll have to move it to a different room and air everything out. Maybe dryer sheets will help.

Comment: I really liked this and the beake too.i use to draw a straight line but I like the way you broke up the lines!
Response: Awe, thanks. I'm so glad you like it. I'm not sure why I drew a raven, I think maybe because I was reading about Alfred Hitchcock the other day.

Hi, I see you like frogs, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining Scales 'n' Tails? Don't be put off by the fact that frogs have neither scales nor tails haha... it's a group for all reptile and amphibians :)
