Comment: I absolutely LOVE her! Thank you so much for "Scriptina" and the extra doll! I wish I could give more hearts.
Response: Oh, I'm just happy you like her...and do have fun making your own version of a literary doll! I know it can be really inspiring to have some bits and pieces to play around with as a 'riff' on a theme. Hugs from Korea!

Comment: Just found a bag with some swaps in that I received just before I moved tucked away in a box I have finally unpacked. The ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC Corpse Bride ornament you made me was amongst them. It's one of my favourite ever swaps. She's now on display and will be displayed all year round, but I will use her as my tree fairy when the tree is up this year 'cos she's so gorgeous and beautifully made. Her face is just perfect : ) Thank-you so much for making her for me Judy : ) I'm really sorry for not rating you sooner.
Response: Wow, wonderful! I'm so glad you liked her - had a lot of fun making her and regretted that I didn't photograph her before sending off. Appreciate the rating! Hugs, J

Comment: Intriguing! Thank you. :0)
Response: I do love the Wunderkammer theme and wanted to create an ATC that looked like an actual little cabinet of treasures. Glad you liked it!

Comment: Wow! SO many wonderful gifts! Where do I begin! The cutest little teddies! The marvelous little hand mirror kit! Lovely letter sets! Millions of wonderful surprises, more than I can even count! I will have to take it all out and go through it tomorrow when I'm rested, but I wanted to let you know it got here in great condition, and that I'm so grateful! The best thing, of course, is the Unicorn Art, by Kat! Masterful, Kat!
Response: She is STILL lovin' on her ami - it came to Canada with us for the summer - so I'm glad you feel equally loved and spoiled! And any time you feel like making a daddy and baby unicorn ami to complete the family ...that would make a wonderful Christmas surprise... :)

Comment: Thank you! I love the fairy! :)
Response: She was a lot of fun to make. I deliberately kept the necktie light and the wire bail large, so that if you found her too large for a pendant she could become a faery tree or Christmas tree ornament. Thank you for rating ...and for the heart!

Comment: LOVE IT!!!!!! Thanks so much.... I don't know if I coud part with any of it..... thanks bunches!
Response: Well, I hope it'll be inspiring and that you can at least bring yourself to use some of the pieces! I know that feeling when you want to hoard your pretties, but challenge yourself to incorporate the bits, first in things you will keep and then in art to trade. :) Enjoy!

Comment: Wow! I felt like I was walking down a Paris street, stopping at shops, buying items...the box is wonderful!! Thanx!
Response: (happy smile) J'adore le items Parisienne, and even here in Korea it's not too tricky to find themed goodies. If you felt as if you were shopping in little stores, then I'm completely delighted!

Comment: I just received the most wonderful woodland kawaii package! I love the Fairy letter papers, they're so pretty!! Thank you for taking the time and care to put together such a nice package for me.I would love to swap you again if you ever find yourself in need of more dishcloths :)
Response: I LURVES my dishcloths and really have to make an effort to actually USE them and get them dirty! I know, that's what they are for, and they work wonderfully, but it's so hard to do it the first time! Perfect colours, lovely textures. (Did I tell you I'm saving the scrubbies for coasters?) Thank YOU!

Comment: There are a few people on Swap-bot when I see their name or know that they are my partner in a Swap, I smile because not only are you a warm, wonderful person to interact with, you are also an incredibly talented individual with an excellent eye for colour, form and the ability to put it together. Even the packaging is amazing, the box is incredible. I love the pin, the raised veining on the leaf is superb. If you hadn't told me it was paper clay I would not have known. I love the copper wire detail, perfect, not too much or too little and you did three green accent jewels. How did you know? I have this thing about odd numbers when it comes to embellishment. To me 3 or 5 of something looks better than 2 or 4. The fact that it can be worn as a pendant is just bonus points and I love the versatility. The only thing I have to say is....where are the earrings to match????
Response: Oooh, you just made my day with that great and detailed comment! That paperclay is frustrating to work with (soft, doesn't hold detail well compared to sculpy) but it IS light and strong. I had fun making it for you - and the odd numbers are a design principle of mine as well - comes from Asian floral design originally! As for the earrings - if you would seriously wear a pair of mini leaves each with their own wire wrap and single green jewel, I would totally make them. Pierced?

Comment: I received the most amazing heraldry design that incorporated most of what I listed and is very personal, and special to me. The detail and skill that were used is amazing and I will use it. Thank you so much,

Comment: Another generous wonderful thoughtful fun and BRIGHT package from the Masterbard! Swapping with you is a real treat! LOVE the notepad! It is just what I've been looking for! Everything was super cute and I know I'm going to end up hoarding those big stickers not wanting to "waste" them on something unworthy! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Response: Happy happy happiness! It was so much fun to pick out those things for you. It's easy to get a lot of this kawaii stuff, but so difficult to get things like Tim Holz or vintage style over here - which is why I like doing private swaps that focus on local strengths and/or handmade goodies. Can't wait to see my box come in!

Comment: Oh my gosh! This was so cute! What a completely awesome idea! My friend and family loved it and I soo totally want to make one now! I have an associates degree in auto mechanics and this was totally up my way. Many hearts!
Response: Oh, I'm so reassured - I felt a bit insecure that it didn't totally fit the description, but everyone who has seen these little boxes LOVES them - and I'm glad you did. May your zeppelin never break down!

Yay, I'm back and settled! Now I just have to wait for the shipping container to arrive with the few bits that are left of my art supplies, and I can start, um, building up my stash again.... (guilty look)

HippieChick on Sep 3, 2014:

Thank you very much for such a fabulous envelope full of such fun goodies! I'm now itching to start playing with them. I will put it all to happy use!

Hi Judith, thank you so much for the envie of paper ephemera destash! It arrived safely today. There were lots of neat and interesting pieces! I decided to share a few with my daughter, since she likes paper crafting too. Thank you again for this generous RAK, and I wish you a safe trip back home!

LizzyJo on Aug 31, 2014:

Thank you soooooo much for the wonderful envie full of awesomeness! I like it all, but especially love the old Korean papers. Best wishes for a safe trip.

Masterbard on Aug 30, 2014:

Hope everyone is getting their RAK envies! Thanks so much to the people who are posting to let me know they came in; it worked out to about a hundred bucks in postage but THAT'S BETTER THAN TRASHING great collage material!

MissPaula on Aug 28, 2014:

Thank you so much for the random goodies! I love them and will make good use of them! Truly, great collage fodder! Thanks and blessings to you and a smooth transition!

cbzcando on Aug 25, 2014:

Thank you for your lovely RAK envelope of ephemera and craft goodies! The vintage Sally and Dick book pages made me smile :) I love the texture of the thin, old Korean book pages (best guess is maybe a names directory?). Looking forward to giving these things a second life in a new collage or ATC. Happy swapping!
