Comment: I like Tim Holtz! The last concert I went to was Chuck Brodsky. I contributed to his album funding, so I got to meet him. But when the day came, I had a really bad cold so I didn't want to get too close to him and ruin the rest of his tour.

Response: yay! Glad you like them,and can find some use for them :)
Comment: Wow, what an amazing curiosity! Thanks so much for re-sending, so sorry that you had to resend such a big swap. The whole family was impressed and my husband put it on the mantel! My in-laws were fascinated, as is everyone else that looks at it. My daughter, the family mythology expert, feels that it has an element of Hades to it as well ... The little diorama and the rhinestones are just ... wow. Thanks so much for everything and for the re-send of such an involved swap!
Response: I am so happy that you like it and that your family also enjoyed it! My family too got a kick out of it and didnt want me to send it away.Knowing you guys like it as much makes me happy. Im glad this one made it to you without being lost. Your daughter is right..it does has an element of Hades, i strangely didnt think of that until now. Maybe a little mini story in the making...haha.Glad it got to you and thankyou for being so understanding about the swap being lost,and than me taking awhile to get it done because of the holidays etc.etc.This is my first swap that ever got lost,and it had to be a big one!bye bye for now <3<3 <3

Hi Nicole! Welcome to Swap-Bot! So glad you're here! You are sooo going to LOVE it here! There are so many fun swaps, and this is such an amazing community of fun, talented, and creative people!

Welcome also to the 'I ♥heart♥ Mail Art - March' swap --- thank you for joining my swap! If you have any questions, please feel free to holler! Hope to 'meet you in the mail' often! :)

p.s. it is always a good idea to fill out your profile with as much information & detail as possible. All your likes, favourite colours, crafts, hobbies, wishlists, etc. The more specific info you have, the happier your mailbox will be! It makes it much easier for your swap partner to create/choose items that you suit you perfectly if you have a well filled-out profile. You will notice on most of the swaps that one of the main requirements is to have a well-filled out profile --- that is the case with this swap as well.

The more detail in your profile, the better the swaps will be for you and your partner!

You have a great start on it!

Happy Swapping! :)
