Comment: Got your snailmail [or what's left of it, haha!] - USPS sent me a destroyed envie - all that is left is the front of it! XD Pretty sure it was for this swap. No need to resend. This happens a lot during the holidays.
Comment: Thanks for the great card and gift tags! I love them. Merry Christmas!
(Just noticed the actual number rating wasn’t showing up. I re-clicked the 5 and heart. Hopefully they’re showing up now?)
Comment: Oh my goodness, all the goodies!!!!! Thank you so much for the ornaments, the ribbons, the buttons, the magnetic notebook and oh yes the awesome magpie journal!!! Wow!!! This journal left me speechless! Thanks so much for the extras inside the journal too! Everything is so colorful and fun. I love it all! Thanks so much! Wish I could rate higher!
Comment: Wow! What a awesome journal! Thank you so much...I just love looking through these. Thank you so much for the paper pad and clipboard and the post it notes, which always come in handy at my job. The keychain is cool and I will find a good use for the cute bag you sent it all in! Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful swap!
Comment: ♥ Very cleaver way of making a journal to fill. I enjoyed every page. Thanks too for the additional items. (I tried downsizing like that but it doesn't work.) Thanks again for a great journal.
Comment: I loved the beautiful stamps and the hand drawn addressing, this was a beautiful and fun envelope to open. Thank you for your generosity, I am looking forward to using the cards and card stock. :)
Comment: I like so many things that you sent! The fox, the HK letter set that I’ve never seen, the other letterset (I’d love to know where to find this type of stationery), the geometric stickers and the postcards! 😍
Comment: WoW! I now understand how the heart comes into play! What a totally delightful card for me from nolagirl! The outside was magical and almost too pretty to open.
Inside was even more wonderful than the outside. Note was sweet and tags were lovely with a pretty blank note card to seal the deal.
TYVM! Such a thoughtful bundle of gifts that are much appreciated. Such a Southern Sweetheart! My very first swap and I was so blessed to receive you. I truly hope our swapping paths meet again.❤️
Comment: OMG! What a totally awesome magpie journal. It put mine to shame . Yours really is a work of art. Thanks for sending! I will be showing it around town and then to my daughter. Thanks so much for sending!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful happy mail...... the envie with all the stamps, exciting. The inside... I really liked the tags with the eyelash type yarn ( I’ll have to learn how to do them) and I’ve never seen a 1 cent Tiffany stamp before. Loved it all
Comment: Hello Traci,
I Thank you for the collection of supplies you gave me to use in a Magpie Journal. I appreciate you labeling each set of items so I know exactly what I received. Labeling will also guide me to how I can use them in a journal. Thank you again for the supplies.
Comment: First of all, I love that you used so many stamps you used to mail this swap! I loved all the little things you included, especially the tiny envelopes and postcards. The sock monkey note paper was fun! And I can't wait to use the King Kong card in a project. Thanks so much for a great swap!!!
Comment: Those are great resolutions. Good luck with them. I had a really bad habit of buying craft supplies because they were on clearance. That's actually the reason I found swap-bot (looking for an outlet to declutter that didn't just involve giving to my local thrift store, though I still give the bulkier items that would be more costly to mail). I think I have gotten better, ha! Thanks for the card and extras.
Comment: Thank you for all the all the Christmas bits and pieces! The SA postal service got really clogged up this festive season so I only got them now but I will definitely use them this December.
Happy new year!
Comment: Love the postage stamps you used! Looking forward to opening this once I get home (out of town so my mister sends me text pics of my mail). Enjoy the holidays and thanks for the happy mail â„ï¸â„ï¸â„ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the nice card, and especially for using such great stamps. What timing, this is Canada's 150th, and you sent me a 100th stamp!! Love everything, including the extra tags which will come handy as I wrap my gifts. Be Well and Season's Greetings!! Diane
Comment: WOW---this swap just blew me away! Your incredible eye to detail and color combinations are just amazing!! I love everything about this configuration box!! This deserves too many hearts to count and I will treasure it:)
Response: You're too kind! :) I really enjoy making these configurations. Thanks again for hosting the swap!
Comment: Wow! Wow! Wow! I LOVE your crafting area! Thank you SO much! I am studying it, lol. Will send the pics back if you want, but while I have them, am thinking of new ideas. I enjoyed and will put to use your tips. Thanks so much!
Response: No need to send the pictures back! Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you're getting a little inspiration from my space. :)
Comment: Oh my goodness....you could not have pleased me more!! I love the house shadowbox and each and every little element you included. The vintage style made me smile with the tin toys and the spinning chick:) Thank you for an amazing swap!!!
Response: I really enjoyed making this swap, so I'm very happy that you like it. I'm glad it arrived safely!
Comment: I totally love getting swaps from you because you put your whole heart and wonderful talent into them! I love each and every fun thing you put into each pocket about yourself! If I lived in N.O., I'm sure we'd be besties! Hearts galore!
Comment: Traci that was a lovely destash, you put alot of cool things in there- it was like magic pulling it out little by little, I loved it all! my 1st foriegn pages, love that little box to fold up, pretty papers , it was awesome- thank you!
Comment: I absolutely love sea creatures- especially sharks and anything with tentacles! This ATC fits perfectly in my collection. Thank you very much for participating in my swaps and sending me a fantastic card! :)
Response: Thank you for the heart and the rating! I enjoy participating in your ATC swaps. I have received so many cool cards!
Comment: Traci....thank you so much for the lovely art/quote journal! It is one of the nicest swaps I've received.....it inspires me to want to create something as lovely as this....Many hearts to you! :-)
Response: It was such a fun swap! I love to do projects like this, but I need a swap deadline to get it finished! I could keep playing around with the same page forever. :) Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Lovely . . . just lovely! I love ANY postal-themed creation and your postal-themed ATC with it's sweet air mail pocket was gorgeous. Thank you for the work you put in on this beautiful creation for me.
Comment: OMG!!!! thank you so much for such a fun package....Love the fibers:) They are the perfect boost I needed to get back to the project I wanted to use them in:) And OMG!! That has to be the largest pillbox I have ever seen. Pity to poor soul who had to take pills that big:) Things I loved about your offering: the wrapping of some of the items so they were a surprise:) -- the lady of guadalupe button (adding to my collection right now - I think that's who it was;) -- all the skulls -- all the religious items -- the cool beads -- the owl charm -- paperclips (especially the one with the heart:) -- lowercase "g" brads -- postage stamps -- and all the other little bits:) Cool beans:) Question: the tag with the teeny tiny eyelet...how did you set it. I have some that small but have no idea how to set them. ANYWAY...if I could give you extra hearts I would. Thank you again...made my day:) Take care
Response: I'm so happy that you enjoyed your package! It was such a fun swap to put together. When I went to the store to buy the pill holder I was surprised by how many different kinds they had - so I just went with the biggest one! :) Sending you a PM about the eyelets.
Comment: love everything about this swap...your envelope was great..even the stamps were just right for this...but the little dragonfly and the "dots" paint..great...the card was amazing...the atc was so creative ...and thank you for the great papers and can't wait to use the punch outs...you made this dreary day bright...thanks so much
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! It was such a fun swap to put together. I kept going back to add a few more touches. Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful ATC of the owl. It's awesome! Right now owls have a special meaning to me because I have started working with them at a nearby nature park. This is the first ATC I have ever received so it will be on 'display' in my home! (: And thanks for the other little extras - I especially liked the saying about the world is a big bundle of little things - it certainly is! (:
Comment: Great Swap, Traci!!! I love the little rubber stamp Happy Mail arrow on front, and all the goodies that you packed inside. I love the really old postcards like the one you sent. Thanks for including it!
Comment: Every once in awhile, I receive a swap that blows my socks off, your package to me was one of those fabulously fantastic swaps. Like Christmas. No matter how much stuff I have, it always amazes me the cool items others have. Many hearts to you and thank you for your generosity. Happy January Traci. ;- )
Response: I love putting together swaps like this! I'm so happy that you were pleased with it! Happy January to you as well!
Comment: The ATC was beautiful! Thank you. The only reason I'm not going to give a heart is because the post mark on the letter said the 3rd, while the deadline was the 2nd. It's only one day, so I'm not going to give a three for just that. Thank you again.
Response: I can assure you that I brought the envelope to the post office on January 2. It was past the 1:00 deadline so it was marked the next day. Sorry. Glad you liked the ATC at least.
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty snow themed Artist Trading Card! I love the blues you used and they make the sparkly red flourish and snowflake shine! Thanks also for the extra papers and punch-out embellishments!
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! I love the blue and red combo for winter.
Comment: MY Oh MY! Thanks so much Traci! What a marvelous envie full of amazing ATC delights! I love the great vintage and holiday themed items. The fun boarders, the great papers, the backs! Everything is wonderful and a super generous amount! Enough for 2 swaps! Thanks so much. Loved the pretty Christmas card too! Have a wonderful holiday season! Hugs! :)
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous Fall ATC (and the great extras too!). The trees in San Jose just don't change color in that amazing burst that I grew up with in NY, and your card is a lovely miniature reminder. :)
Comment: I love you've your embossed leaves! They really catch the light beautifully. Your ATC reminds me of a really nice woman I know with old-world charm who would always tuck a leaf inside her notes :) Thanks for the great extra goodies, too.
Comment: Wow! What a fabulous envie stuffed with tons of amazing things. I am so in crafter heaven as I dug into each holiday envie. This will keep me in goodies for some time. Thank you for such a fabulous swap and hours of fun! Hugs, Mona
Comment: Ha-Ha-Happy New Year! Thanks so much for the card! Hope your Christmas was fantastic! Sorry for the late rating...been ill to ring in the New Year most likely as a result of the holiday stress. Hope you have a wonderful, healthy and happy 2014!
Comment: Hello Traci, thank you for the very beautiful Christmascard. Please put the name of the swap on your card, it was hard to find you, because I have a lot of christmascardswaps... I wish you a verry merry Christmas! Greets, Aafke
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful atc! I just received it yesterday (Nov. 20) even tho your envelope was postmarked Oct. 1! One side was completely torn open and the PO had put it in one of their envelopes and sent it on to me. Who knows why it took so long! But the atc was in perfect condition, thank goodness! (I told my husband this is why I go thru so much tape - I always tape the sides and bottoms of all my envies - he says I use way too much tape!)
Response: I'm so glad it arrived despite the rough treatment! I guess I need to start taping all of my envies too. Thanks for letting me know!
Comment: LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!
i just got it this morning & sat down to read it this evening. fascinating! i am from england as you know, so it was really interesting to read about the foods there. you eat a lot of mexican, spicy food (i love jalapenos!) and you have delicious breakfasts; omg! things i've never heard of are; sausage links, diako raddish, hash/scrambles for breakfast (thanks for the little recipe!), poor boy sandwiches (thanks for the info on it), cevichie. i will be hosting another one going up soon now the seasons are changing; it would be great if you joined again =) i loved it, thank you so much for the cute cover too. i love kawaii. & now you've made me so hungry! oh, key lime yoghurt! sounds DELICIOUS!!!! i want it. i've never seen anything like that here. me & my boyfriend want some now, lol. i'm going to store this journal forever =) thanks again!! xxx
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! It was such a fun swap to do.
Comment: Thank you very much for the super- cute ATC! I absolutely LOVE it!!! Wow, the owl is soooo sweet! It is so nice of you to enclose all the extra goodies as well, all those ATC papers are absolutely beautiful! Incidentally, I LOVE NOLA as well!!! I have been there many times, and always have new discoveries! As soon as the weather gets cooler, I will be back there!!!
Response: Thank you for the kind words about my ATC. I'm so glad you liked it. I'm so looking forward to cooler weather! Enjoy your next trip to NOLA!
Comment: thank-you so much for the great ATC you sent to me for this swap, I love it and also love leaves especially gum leaves, but your leaf is a fabulous collage. Thank-you also for the lovely extras to use when I create ATC's.
Comment: Thank you for your nice air mail envie and all those great Christmas stamps. Wow, how great. Sending a postcard from decades ago was fun to read. I'm getting a typewirter soon and hope it is better than the print on the card from 1949! I hope to use your aerogramme during Christmas. What a great swap you send - LOVELY!!
Comment: Skulls!! You sent me skulls - I'll love you forever!! And the stamps are really great, too! Two of them didn't even get cancelled and the others just lightly! Will definitely be able to use them for future artwork! Thank you!
Comment: I have just about finished mine to send out and I received yours. Now I want to re-do. I wonder if I have time...
Thank you for a lovely swap, and the extras I am going to incorporate into my own swap.
Thank you again!
Comment: I had to laugh out loud, literally when I opened our envie to see this particular Fall ATC. I was on swapbot earlier in the day and saw the same ATC on Flickr and was admiring it. Small world and then I got one of my very own. Thank you, thank you for sharing with me in this swap. blessings, ellie
Comment: Hi Traci - thanks for the wonderful collection of ATC backgrounds. I have yet to make an ATC (I think it's the "artist" part that scares me off!), but all the pieces you sent will be wonderful additions to my home made postcards! Thanks for your generosity! Jen
Comment: Very cool atc. Thank you. I love the background especially. I have a date stamper but i forget to use it... on a background that would be such a great way... Thank you for that idea. Also the flower is super too. Very creative and inspiring.
Comment: I've always wanted to try alcohol ink, but I really know nothing about them except that they sound cool. This is the second card I've rec'd for this swap that is flower-themed. And I love the little snail-mail stamp on the envie, did you carve it?
Comment: Loved-loved-loved your "all my heart" ATC!! AND the patriotic flag card that. You sent me. You are really on the ball getting those Mega swap at ATC's out aren't you:-)
Thank you for sharing, blessings, ellie
Comment: This just arrived this morning! It is so so awesome and much better than the one I made - ha! I think I'll really enjoy using this as a scrap book for bits and bobs. How did you spiral bind it? Anyway, thank you again and I hope you enjoyed my swap! I think I may do another one at some point!
Comment: Just my style! Traci, thank you so much for the great inchies!! I love them, their mini envelopes, and even the card you sent them in! I have to say that this is one of the best packages I've received since joining SwapBot! Guess it just goes to prove that it's the "little" things in life that make me happy. Great work. Keep on Swapping!
Comment: I LOVE the embossing technique you used! And I can't wait for you to see the card I made for you---let's just say, I think we were channeling each other that day! :) Thanks so much for the beautiful card. blessings, Gypsy
Comment: I thought the atc was different than all the past ones I have seen. Thanks for the coin and the extras. I lived in l Luling and Vacherie and the last place we lived was La Place. I left there 1981.I have held on to alot of the past coins, and I have some of the orginal glass beads, I figured they might be worth something one day.I have lost contact with some people there in Metairie, and LaPlace. If I sent you their names do you think you can see if they are still there since Katrinia.
Comment: Traci... I got your card a while ago and I guess it didn't get rated or i didn't save my rating. I came across it today in my mail pile. I am so sorry you had to wait. Its wonderful and finished a beautiful page in my mini museum of atcs
( album) Thank you for creating a L-O-V-Ely piece of art.
Comment: Wow, it took it 18 days! The envelope has seen better days (thanks USPS), but the card was a-ok and as the sentiment says it was Molto Bello! I love the background paper and the Molto Bello writing/stamp! Thank you so much!
Comment: Oh Traci, it's wonderful!! I LOVE this ATC. Thank you so much. The colours, the theme and the layering are all just perfect. I was so thrilled to find out that you were sending to me. It has been a long time since we have swapped. Take care and Happy Valentine's Day! :-)
Comment: Hi Traci - What a cute package you sent! I liked your letter and the ATC you made. So sweet of you to send with it a starter kit, the making memories embellishments are so cute! Hope to swap more with you sometime. ;D
Comment: hi traci! been meaning to tell you that i rec'd your sweet atc last week, but with the blizzard, i couldn't get online due to sporadic connection :(... anyway, thank you so much for your card and for playing in both mega valentine swaps!!! happy valentine's day! :) mary ann
Comment: Thank you for the ATC. I know snow is scarce there. I am a cajun girl born and raised. I miss home very much. Used to live Myrtle Grove near Belle Chase and down around Lafayette I grew up. Have a great day.
Comment: that was so kind of you to replace the atc that the p.o. "ate"... love the one i rec'd a couple of days ago... (sorry we've had spotty internet...darn satellite/wintry weather!)... thanks for being such a thoughtful swapper and for playing in the mega swap! :) mary ann
Comment: Thank you so much =) the kit is AMAZING =) I love every single thing in it and you went over the top =) you will totally spoil me =) really thank you again and I hope to swap with you again some time =) I wish I could give you more hearts â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: I particularly enjoyed your pc. The romance of New Orleans intrigues me, and is captured so well with the rainy picture....and on further examination they are strolling on Pirates Alley....i love pirates, their history, culture....THANK YOU!
Comment: Your lovely parcel arrived today, it was great to get home from work and have such a lovely parcel to open, I love all the things you sent me and really wish I could give you more hearts, thankyou so much, very best wishes and I'm sure our paths will cross again sometime with swap-bot, with regards Barbara
Comment: Wow! You sent a ton of stuff! I love the little crab punch and the floral ribbon. Also, I can't believe you gave me your alphabet stamps! I love those! And the vellum paper is great, too. Thank you for a great swap!! xoxo
Comment: thank you SO SO much for actually, really stuffing an envelope! WOW. i esspecially love the PC's, so awesome. always in need of postcards. :] and all the other cute notecards and whatnot too, too cute. thanks a bunch, again! <3 <3
Comment: The Louisiana cemetery does look beautiful! My family traveled a lot when I was younger, and visited many cemeteries and historical sites. So it's very possible that I have actually been in one of those on the card! Thanks a lot! :)
Comment: Thank you so much! I loved especially the zipper pull and the beautiful bookmark. The little baggies were adorable, even though they were just plain little ones. (I know, odd sense of 'cute', but oh well.) Thanks again!
Comment: interesting rolo-cool! Thank you ---- edited 5/30/09 - I just got my other rolo and saw that i hadn't given you a heart --- what was that about? Your rolo was really nifty and I apologize - i thought i gave you a heart when I initially rated you
Comment: I recd and LOVVVVVVVVVVE IT! the jar was cute. All the contents were awesome, i unpacked to look at it all, i dont know how you got it all in there!! You are awesome, the little jumper for my grandaughter made us all squeal with glee! you are awesome!! Thank you!! Manda
Thank you so much for the handmade goodies. It is funny because I sent soap and coffee to my partner! I actually sent Community Coffee to someone as a wish. I ordered it online and have always wondered what it is like. That soap smelled so good, I swear I could smell it when the mailman came through the door! I don't know how you knew, but it is my boyfriend's birthday next Tuesday and he loves trying new kinds of hot sauce. Usually I find one for him every holiday, but did not find anything interesting for his birthday. It was exactly what I needed. Thanks so much.
Comment: I just opened my very first whimsey jar and it is the bomb, baby! Love the clown head and the stamp pad, fibers, ribbons, buttons, laces, stamps. I was thrilled with every single bit that I pulled out of the jar. Can't fit everything back in, you did a superduper job. I have this big old stupid grin on my face. Thank you for brightening my day.
Comment: Wow, the information you sent was so interesting. I never knew about the fava beans for St Joseph and I went to Catholic schools. Erin stole the St Patricks badge of course :)
I love my evil eye too
Comment: Say you did not make the owl yourself, or I will have a big inferiority complex!! And thank you so much for sending two roses - I think you had a very good idea where will I use them. ;) Like the little red beast, too... must keep away from children, though - I'm afraid that they are stronger than he is, although he tries to look scary.
Comment: Thank you so much for the lucky charms and for the story behind the St. Joseph celebrations. I really like reading that he's the saint of families, as I was born in St. Joseph's Memorial Hospital! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: WOW! This is absolutely the most fantastic skull shrine I've ever seen! I love the bright colours that you used and I put it on top my gnome home so that I can look at it every day! Thank you so much for making this for me! I love it! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: What a great package! I have to start by saying that I literally SQUEALED with joy when I saw the lovely doll...that was so thoughtful! Then there was a great tiny owl stuffie, a pendant, soap, and a notebook--all just perfect! Thanks for a great swap package.
Comment: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything that you included in my matchbox. It is so packed with all sorts of fun things to create with especially the old clock face...you read my profile :-D I wish I could give a bunch more hearts. Thanks for making my day!
Comment: OMG!!!! Where do I begin,,, You found the most perfect things for me in this swap!=) I couldn't stop opening until I got to the last in the box! i had the perfect parter for a 'Friendship" Swap. Thank You soooo much hon! I wish I could give you more than 1 heart! You really went all out for this! Thanks again!!!
Response: I had a great time picking things out for you! I'm glad to have you as a friend. :)
Comment: thank you for the atc, would you beleive i received half a card and luckily just the corner of the atc was torn off, it must have been torn in transit and the postal people just put sticky tape to keep it together. it was so funny when i first saw it..
Response: I'm sorry your card was torn! It probably happens a lot this time of year. I'll send you another ATC. :)
Comment: Thanks for the really cool ATCs! I love your stamps and wish I had some cool stamps like those. The Christmas card was really nice as well. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Take Care, Crystal
Comment: Oh my gosh my tiny little dotee doll is just GORGEOUS!! You said that you were new at these, well you've got the idea! I just LOVE it!!! Thank you so much, and for the extras too! I'm going to put her on my Christmas tree, then in my sewing room when the holidays are over. She is such a sweet little doll!
Comment: If i could give you more than a 5 i would. I am truly touched by your hard work and effort into this swap. You matched me to a T! To the purple ribbon, to the many little goodies. Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Again, I could leave some of the longest feedback I have ever left. For someone who said they were having trouble trying to decide what to do in her book - you did a wonderful job!
I LOVE your gluebook - it's a piece of art! Each & every page is so wonderful - I love all the little hidden suprise, the colors, the tabs, EVERYTHING!
Did you bind the book yourself? It looks so professional...Thank You, Thank You!!
Comment: This was just such a perfect day for this package to arrive. Cole woke up sick this morning, I told him he couldn't go to school - he was so upset that he was crying. Then your package arrived!
It was EXACTLY what he needed! He Loves every single thing you picked for him. I can't even begin to Thank you for all the super things that you included. (He's already coloring & playing with his car.)
Lukas loves his toy - he wants the books too but he's in that "I eat everything" stage - so he can't have them when alone :)
The tree ornaments are so wonderful. They will have a special spot on my tree every year & I will always think of you when I see them. The one you made for Lukas is his first ornament :)
The bento supplies are TOO cool!! I wish I could give you a big big hug for such a thoughtful & wonderful package!
Comment: OMG!!! I L-O-V-E my pencil case full of supplies! You packed it full with so many goodies! (very generous) Thank you so VERY much! Hugs n â™¥'s to u! :) ...Psttt...Thank you for the postcard! :)
Comment: !!!!! I can not even tell you just how adorable these little guys are!! I love them! The tree is awesome, and teh Owls are so cute, that my friend that was over when i opened up the package snagged one, and I havn't been able to get it back from her!! FANTASTIC! Thank You!!
Comment: absolutely loved it....thanks so much. That is awesome you live in New Orleans. If you do pen palling and are interested in being pals, just send me your address, as it was smeared on the box by the time it got to me!
Comment: OMG! Traci, you really outdid yourself on this one!! I absolutely love everything, and especially chuckled at how you "stretched" a little to make it work! (Gotta love Tim Gunn!) You truly spoiled me dearie. :) Thanks so much! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: Wowee! What a great little package! Love the Pumpkin Head, The Vaccine lol The potion, Treasure chest and pin and like just wow! Thanks mate, great partner ye are and defo deserve a 5 and big heart!
Comment: OMGoodnes! WOW! Woo Hoo! I love my whimsy jar!!! How on earth did you get all those fabulous things in that jar??? I have my bracelet on, the lace and ribbon are to die for, I can never get enough glitter, and there are not words for all the beautiful buttons you sent. I've never had a watch face before so I can't wait to try something with it. Many blue things to match my favorite color and the "shabby chic" factor is excellent. What a wonderful package to come home to after a long day. Thank you so much for being extra thoughtful and kind. You could not have sent me anything better:) Hugs, Sally
Comment: My journal is totally original & that distressed look is just so eyecatching.
I'm so happy with it! The alligator pen is just a riot and I'm glad you shipped the 2 swaps together for BIG MAIL!
Comment: Traci: thanks for not one but TWO art dolls. I love them both and have them hanging in my office :) I know you like the black and white one best, but I'm equally smitten with the other too, as she's earthy :)
Comment: You're probably thinking 'Who gives a heart for a single ACT?' Well that's me, and it happens when I receive a little piece of art that I certainly couldn't create, and if I had a wee frame, I'd hang it on my wall. So there :P
Comment: Traci!! YEAH!! My name in a cemetary!! Right up my alley grrl!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this ATC! Such a great photograph!! The cemetaries in New Orleans are some of the ones I want to see most!! The card you sent the card in is gorgeous also! Thanks so much for everything!! â™¥
Comment: OMG Mujer! To say I LOVE this Shrine is an understatement! You could sell these. They remind me of shrines I see in Mexico. Wonderful job. I am going to attach a hanger and hang it proudly on my wall. Thank you so much for the beautiful work you put into it.
Comment: Traci!! OMG you spoiled me rotten! The package of shrine stuff you sent me was absolutely amazing!! The tiny Mary's, the sweet charms, the prayer cards....everything was...WOW!! Thank you girl!!!
Response: I can't wait to see what you do with everything!
Comment: Traci, I just LOVE your bottle caps!! (especially Stevie! =^_^= ) How do you work so small?! And the extra ones are fabulous too! Thanks so much! And thanks for the Attic Wishlist bento box! It's gorgeous! blessings, Gypsy
Comment: I really like the cute little pincushion and the owl and bottlecap.
I also like the container that the pincushion was in ~ did you make that too? And I can use the tissue and gold thread for papercrafts. Thank you for such a great package!
Comment: Great job on the sweet Virgin & Child bottlecap! I actually LOVE being able to see the original print of the can on the reverse of the embossed tin, so I'm glad the paint didn't "take.". Thanks again!
Comment: What a beautiful matchbox! I love the glitter, I think it came out really well. And TINY DICE!!! I haven't had any tiny dice for years. The coasters are great, too, and the bottlecap, and well, totally love it all, thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the bags, they look really nice and will be so useful! I love the little zip-up bag and have already placed it in my handbag. You don't happen to know where I can buy more of that one? Both I and my boyfriend loved it and I would love to have some more.
Comment: OMG, you went over and beyond with this swap : so many things to look at ! 2 bentos (!), egg molds, bag, chopsticks & cutlery, mini bottles and cherry on the pie : in one of my favourite colours, yellow. If I could give you more than 1 heart, you'd definitely have hundreds of them! Thanks for being such a great swap partner :o)
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. I'm about to try the egg molds out now, just waiting on the eggs to cook. The legwarmers a so awesome. I can't wait of cool weather again! The hedgehog bag is perfect, I took it to Trader Joes today. I love everything. Thanks for putting together such a thoughtful package. xo
Response: Glad you liked everything! I'm almost ashamed to admit that I haven't tried to used my egg molds yet even though I've had them for months. Let me know how they come out!
Comment: WOW! WOW! WOW! What a GREAT Package of goodies from Louisana. Such a large variety. Well worth MANY stars for sure. Plus I've been ill for awhile and have barely been trading. I missed all the great mail and then here comes a swap and cheer up package all in one :) Thanks so much and Hugs :)
Comment: Can I say I "double love" this jar? Awesome! Thank you so much for all the goodies and for making it so personal. I got to vainly admire all th "K"'s. :) 'K' really is one of the prettier letters of the alphabet, don't u think?
Thanks again for a lovely swap!
Comment: What a wonderful package! My children loved everything! It was so nice of you to include something for my youngest child. Very sweet! She was so excited to get the plates because she does not have any. I wish I could give you lots of hearts. :-) Thanks gain.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful matchbox but thank you even more from Sierra! She spent the whole night colouring each page until they were completely coloured in. She's never used those before and loved them, especially since they were Dora. She didn't colour in the lines obviously but she had soooo much fun! thank you for being so thoughtful!
Comment: Hello Traci,
Thank you for the postcard you recently sent as part of the "P is for... Postcard" Swap. I love the great colors, masks, jewelry, etc. I also appreciate your gracious note. I am looking forward to adding your postcard to my ever-growing and diverse Postcard collection. I look forward to meeting up with you at another "Letter-themed Postcard" Swap and/or a brand new swap. Hope you continue to have successful swaps.
Comment: I am totally floored by this package. WOW! I love the matchbox drawers. I swear when I open the drawers, the essence of New Orleans comes busting out. And the mask....it is lovely. It is going up on the will with my other mask collection.
What a lovely symbol the Fleur de Lis has become. I am so happy that New Orleans is healing from the disaster of Katrina.
I love New Orleans pralines. When ever I'm there, I fill up on those and beignets...I need to make a visit soon. This praline has sparked my appetite for them.
Response: I'm glad you like it. I agonized over that matchbox way too much since I felt like I had to represent New Orleans. I love pralines and beignets too! My mom and I try to go to Cafe DuMonde every month or so.
Comment: Your package arrived today. It is wonderfully heavy. I just ate dinner, and I am putting of opening it, so I won't be tempted to eat more and make myself ill. I will let you know as soon as I open it. :)
That is an awesome package!!! All those cool candies, and my first pocky! But who came up with cream corn flavored candy?! Definitely different.
Comment: Thanks for the card from your beautiful town. My DH & I have actually eaten a muffaletta sandwich at the Napoleon House. It was wonderful! We will be coming down there again in two weeks. I'm so excited! We are coming down through Clarksdale MS on April 19th for the Juke Joint Festival then on down to New Orleans, Lafayette, Grand Isle State Park and wherever we else we decide to roam. I'm so glad I got a card from New Orleans because we love going there so much!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the LSU and Louisiana stuff. The little shot glass arrive with a broken handle, but it's a no problem fix! I'm thinking of framing the Fleur-de-les postcard. Also, my hubby says "Thank you" for the St. Michael card and charm. He's going to carry the card on him now and wear the charm once he's out of the academy as they can't wear necklaces now. But THANK YOU!! for everything!
Comment: thank you, Traci for a wonderful swap!! I love how you decorated & collaged the outside of the box!! I am going to use it for paper clip storage right here on my desk :) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of the little charms and miniatures you sent! thank you for being so generous â™¥
