Comment: This is truly a work of art. So much movement and play with textures! I have never before seen the intriguing technique you used, and want to try it for myself now. Your attention to detail is impressive, and I loved hearing about your inspiration for the piece. Thank you for a beautiful little treasure. ♥
Response: I'm glad you like it! It looked like nothing but a tangled mess until I added the little house. The process was quite enjoyable! Thanks for participating :-)

Comment: This was amazing to read, it made me laugh so much! Each new thing was like, "Yeah, I can handle that!" Honestly operatic Metallica would make that drive so much better, I've done it when my husband had an account in Stockton. I get carsick too, the bags are already under the seat! Separate vacations from my family? I don't have to get up and feed all the animals?! WHERE.DO.I.SIGN.UP. Oh, and I'll totally sleep in my son's bed, it's the newest and most comfortable in the house! My husband is the GM of the casino bank, he'll school you all day long to get you in there so he can win your money. It's open 24 hours, I'll get that train ticket money back from you on a roundabout way in no time!!! I'm gonna need a lot of beer for The Shining... I'm familiar with Rancho Bernardo, I got you for sushi and Ben & Jerry's; I've learned edamame is really filling. The Lookout is a fabulous place to see the sunrise over the lake, oh and as for your fresh cream... Well, we have to drive right by the dairy on Corydon to get to and from the casino so consider it done (I'll even get you some of the world's best chocolate milk, 6% fat and worth every calorie). Paddleboats haven't been made available at Launch Pointe yet, but I'd be happy to paddle you around the wetlands in our kayak - the wildlife is beautiful. I have done more Vegas turn arounds than I can think of to go to the airport to pick someone up and send them home - back and forth and back forth. Maybe you can burn a Metallica cd for me for the ride home! Super fun swap, I loved it!!
Response: Oh, man! I made that way too easy on you! Your husband might actually be the only one suffering here! LOL! I do think we would have a lot of fun together. :-) Thanks for doing this with me! I'll be sending your hostess gift next week. Fade to Black . . .

Comment: I got your butterfly envelope today, it's very beautiful, and I can see you've put a lot of work in it. Thank you very much! Also thank you for the letter, and the pretty notecard.
Response: Thanks for your kindness. Again, I'm so sorry the post office added their own "art" to the piece. I appreciate the rating and the heart.

jeka396 rated for FS: 2 Truths & A Lie PC - US Only on Jul 25, 2019
Comment: Loved the PC you chose... and my guess for the lie is #1- playing the Cowardly Lion
Response: You got it :-) Thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: What an adorable postcard! My guess for the lie is the 3rd one about your Dad calling your bff Tumbleweed
Response: I was happy when I found that postcard in my stash. I thought you would like it. :-) Thanks for the rating and heart. PMing the answer.
helo rated for N&T: ATC Coin on Jul 2, 2019
Comment: WOW amazing stitch - must have taken you AGES. xx
Response: It did take ages! I had forgotten how time-intensive counted cross-stitching is. Thanks so much for joining the swap and for the nice rating :-)
Comment: I like it! And its title cracked me up! (I do have to admit that I had always pictured Coco as a blonde, so the color of her contribution was a surprise.) Give Coco the Wonder Dog a hug and kiss (minus the vaseline) for me. Thanks for joining me in this fun (though immensely weird) swap!
Response: Nope! Coco is dark and mysterious. :-) Now that you've seen it, you have to admit that my twinchie is kind of disgusting, right? It's ALWAYS a pleasure swapping with you...even when our projects get weird. Thanks!
Comment: this is amazing thanks!
Comment: I love the vintage look Nashville pc- thank you! :)
Response: I'm always amazed when flimsy PCs like that make it to their destinations! Go, USPS! Thanks for the heart :-)

LizzyJo rated for PVT: The Final Frontier (CBI #4) on May 8, 2019
Comment: Your final set of coins is absolutely gorgeous! I love them, and their titles as well. This 4 swap series was the very best kind of challenge, and you are the best partner. Thank you so very much.
LizzyJo rated for TPS: Presto! on May 7, 2019
Comment: Thank you for sending not only one, but 3 lovely prints. The tree and garden prints are great, but I especially love the Eiffel Tower print. (I was hoping you'd send that one.) Thanks for hosting this swap, and for nudging me outside my comfort zone.
Response: I know you like to see my rejects. LOL! I'm glad I ended up deciding to send that one out. You're helping me learn not to be so fussy. :-) Thank you, thank you for joining this swap and sharing your lovely pieces with me. And, of course, thanks also for the nice rating.

Ya! I'm so glad you like it! I fell in love with that start print felt and had to buy it, haha! And, yes, that ribbon is hand woven; not by me! I purchased it years ago at a local shop that sources handmade materials from all over the world. Maiwa As well as a bunch of other fun stuff. I look forward to seeing the results of your printing sessions. :) Thanks so much for tagging me!

I love her underwear!!

bigmamabird on Sep 1, 2019:

So the original comment I wrote up got eaten by me pressing the wrong button at the end... But My Goodness, what a cool paper doll you've made for me!! Such a welcome surprise for the OMAE August RAK attack...I love that you used my profile to create her... She arrived quite safe in her sturdily armored envelope which was also cool.. Many thanks Allison! Hope your Sunday is a fabulous one...

I wouldn't tell I was on anniversary if you don't drop a message! Incredible how time flies that much!! ♥

sassafrass on Aug 29, 2019:

Thank you so much! It's funny because you are right ... it is a mess when you see it lol! When I got done to what I thought was "done" I saw a bird's nest and went with it. Then I re-read the swap description :D (I swear I always re-read and double check!) I think I was so concerned about the technique and getting it, that I totally blanked on the fabric note. Ahh well, was fun anyways and I will be prepared for the next ;-)
