My absolute favorite things to receive are items that you make! The best swaps I have received thus far are things that you talented women have made that are themed to my LOVES! I will treasure those and the ones I am lucky enough to receive in the future forever. They are all displayed in my craft room!

I pledge to rate you ALWAYS and will ALWAYS contact you before rating you if I have not yet received from you and would appreciate the same courtesy from you :o)

Comment: Hello Denise, I wanted to express my appreciation for your informative and colorful ATC. It arrived on Feb. 8th in great condition. I appreciate your patience and understanding with regard to my tardiness in getting your rating done. I really appreciate the information you shared on your ATC even though some was covered by the illustration. It is a great addition to my ATC Collection and more specifically to the "Zodiac ATC Collection." I look forward to swapping with you during 2010. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!!!

Hi! I see that you like matchboxes so I wanted to invite you to join my new group matchbox & more. It's mostly about matchboxes of various kinds but there are some other kinds of swaps (such as whimsy jars & lucky parcels). I hope you'll come be a part of the fun! Thanks!
