swap-bot LIKES & DISLIKES

DISLIKE: Non-raters. It makes me sad when I work really hard on a swap project and the recipient doesn't immediately run to their computer one second after they have admired it to post a rating. LOL

Cool things to find in an "envie" cocktail napkins, washi tape, good quality note cards like Hallmark, naked postcards (old or new) any kind of stickers, humor, vintage photo's, collage, cool used stamps to craft with (noncollectable)

If you make a ATC, APC, inchie or "whatever" and take the time to send it to me, I will value it forever.

I work very hard to maintain my perfect 5.0 rating. If you do not receive a swap from me, it's been lost in the mail (it happens). Please message me and I will send another. Thank you in advance for your communication on swaps, and thank you for rating!

Happy swapping to all my friends to come!

Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable journal. I love all of the die cuts you included - the spiders are awesome! Was this the first junk journal you made? If so, great job!! I am learning to sew and think it's so great that you are sewing Christmas presents. I would love to have that confidence to do that one day. :-)

Comment: Kathy, this is amazing. I also did it several times different days and none of mine were as good as yours. I wish I could at least give you 4 hearts for all those attempts. Thank you so much

I have sent you a pm. I guess the altered postcard became a travelling postcard. LOL!

Hi Kathy! I received the PRECIOUS Angel with Washi that you Angeled for your swap where my partner flaked. Not only is the washi AMAZING (I love Angels), but you taking the time and effort to send when my partner didn't...I appreciate it a ton. YOU are a terrific host for doing this. Many, many thanks.

Thank you so much for the envie of surprises. It was a wonderful surprise. I was confused at first, wondering what swap it was for and had forgotten about a swap. Then I recognized my own handwriting and figured out I was a RAK! Lol
