Comment: sorry for low rating, but the first ones as you said were hand drawn and not what the swap called for, i emailed letting you know i never got the other set but didnt get a response. will re rate if i get them.
Comment: OMG I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE AMIGURUMI ADIPOSE!!! â™¥â™¥â™¥ (it is too cute for words!!!)
Everything else was wonderful too like the River Song journal~ I'm glad that I had you for a swap!!! I'll take of pic of everything later~
Comment: OMG. You really went far beyond what the swap actually was about. How dare you to send me so DAMNED GREAT ATCs! I love them all! And I want to read the MlP:FiM x Sailor Moon cross Fanfiction NOW! Would you like to send me the link? :D You made me curious! Thank you so so so so so much!
Comment: This rating is made July 19, 2009-----okay, Barb, I got it! I really like the thought you put into this ATC, but unfortunately, since the Swap Deadline was Nov 15, 2008, I have to rate you a 3. If this had been on time, I would have easily given you a 5 and a heart. I'm glad you are working to remedy the 1 ratings you have. Keep up the good work! Thank you for the lovely Japanese doll bookmark too. She is so beautiful! many blessings, Gypsy
Response: I completely understand! Thanks for re-rating me once you got them. ^_^ Glad that you like the bookmark. I had a lot of fun making her. Japanese crafts are my favorite, so it was easy! hehe. Thanks again!
Comment: I'm sorry to do this, but I contacted you and you messaged me back on Nov. 23rd saying you would resend. I still have received nothing as of 12/27. I will change the rating if I receive something. UPDATE 7/17/09: I received this swap yesterday. It was postmarked (7/13/09)5 days after the date you have that you sent it out on your profile. Thank you for finally sending and the extra ATC.
Response: Yeah, we had some problems with our post man picking stuff up. I'm glad that it got to you. I hope that you liked them.
Comment: You really over did yourself! Everything was just amazing. My kids flipped over the dragons and 'bucks' and I will be posting my youngest on flickr with his. He is really proud of them. I LOVED the bag. I was such need of a new one and the colors are great! The necklace was adorable. The matchbox had my husband and I laughing and then he said, "hey, I had that minature!" Thanks for the dice as you never can have enough. My oldest stole the dragon. (He LOVES dragons so it has a good home.) Everything rocked. It was SOOOO worth the wait! Many Many Hearts! Loved it!
Comment: Thanks so much for the links, I am sorry it took me so long to rate you..Yours also ended up in my spam folder! I am gonna let you know my fav's when I get more time to look them all over, you have many I have never been to before! Hugs :)
Comment: Swapping with you was a wonderful experience. I was really impressed with both the leather cuff and the handmade card that you made with a steampunk flair. I would love to swap with you again anytime in the future!
Response: Thank you so much. I'll keep working on the hat pattern once I've cleared my head a bit about it. I feel like such failure on it right now. ^_^ I'm sure I'll figure it out.
Comment: Thanks for the story and the atcs. I loved the atc's-thanks for the set, and the fan-fic was different...lol. Shakesphere isn't really my cup of tea, but at least you picked a play that I had some knowledge of...lol
Response: Yeah, my roomate decided that she had to write the "fan fic" for my swap. I had fun doing the cards though. ^_^ Thanks for letting me know you got it.
Comment: This is truly one of those times when you wish it was possible to give more than a single heart! I LOVE your ATC, they are so incredily beautiful and the little kitten package is so cute ^_^ THANKS THANKS THANKS!
Comment: Thanks so much for your mail :) I was surprised that you sent two ATCs instead of one - both of them are so beautiful - and even more when you told that you'll be sending something else, too! OMG, thank you! By the way, it took some time before I realized that the lucky cat on the small envelope is actually a lucky vampire cat ;)
Response: I'm glad that you liked, and I'm positive that you'll like the second envalope as well!! ^_^ It's going to be going out this weekend (I ran out of postage! heh!) -Barb
Comment: Barb!!! Wowie! NIN and MM? YEAH!!! These are perfect for these Rock and Roll ATCs. I actually wanted to do these with bands like these but I didn't think that others would consider this Rock and Roll ;) I'm glad you do and that we think alike!!! I'm so happy to have these ATCs in my collection!! Oh, and never think that your work isn't good, coz I sure enjoy it!!! A++++ for you dear!
Response: Thanks!! I had a lot of fun making these! ^_^
Comment: I adore my gothic Barbie. She is absolutely exquisite!. She must have taken quite a while to alter. What a gorgeous purple dress : ) Love the sparkly purple shawl you also sent. Thank-you very much Barb : ) You're a star!
Comment: OH. MY. GOODNESS. You have got to be the MOST awesome swapper!! I am in total awe of your creativity!! The Barbie topiary is FABULOUS!! How on earth did you do that???!! Plus, all the super wonderful extras you sent me!! I adore my skirt (so very thoughtful of you) and my atc sleeves....thankyou,thankyou,thankyou! AND the set of floral atc's you created! I love them! I can't thankyou enough...You deserve way....more hearts than just one! thankyou for putting together such an awesome swap pkg for me - it made my weekend!
Response: I'm glad that you liked it. ^_^ The Topiary barbie was pretty easy actually. She's got brown papyrus glued to her with that "project glue" that you get for doing dioramas (it sticks to plastic really well), I wired her into the base then built up the "root" look with hot glue. ^_^ Sprayed some adhesive on it and flocked it with "grass" from games workshop. The hair was fro'd then flocked. I painted the glue on that cause spray adhesive gets pretty much everywhere. . . The topiary balls on her hands are actually just the bubble machine bubbles from gashapon machines that have been flocked. Yeah, thats pretty much it. ^_^
Comment: Barb, the ATC's were beautiful! I was awed by them and loved them. I hope you haven't spoiled me for future ATC swaps! The card blanks were georgous as well. Your guy was great and he deserves an extra star for his help! Thanks!
Response: Thanks hon! I'm glad that you liked them. Yeah, Joel's a good one, I'm gonna keep him around, I think. I took him out to dinner to thank him for being such a sport!
Comment: WOW WOW WOW what a lovely package I have really enjoyed looking at all the goodies and reading your journal
Response: I'm glad that you liked! I had a lot of fun putting together all of the little ATC's!! Hope that boosts your collection a bit. ^_^ (seeing as I make two of each set, it certainly boosted mine!!)
Comment: you get a star for even thinking of this one!! and a heart for the cool cards, the note and the tea which i look forwart to trying--yes i try to think daily of things to keep me going because i lovike what i do just not some of the "nondoers" people around me.
Comment: I love the clipboard. I opened the package and I was speechless (and that doesn't happen very often)! It is so gorgeous and you have so much talent it's amazing and awe inspiring! Then you add a decorated matchbox (my first one ever) filled with confetti and an adoreable little owl charm! You are an unbelievebale swapper! Thank you so much!
Response: I'm telling you something! That was actually a harder swap than I thought it was going to be. I'm glad that you liked it. ^_^
Comment: Hello Barb, What can I say but WOW! I was intrigued by the box and then by the golden ball inside (which my cat had his eye on). Then when I saw what the ATC's where about, I thought what a lovely idea. I also love the Frog Prince book you made. I collect small books, so you sent it to someone who will appreciate it. If I could give you extra hearts you would receive one. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I have been unwell and also the internet would not work for a week. It seems okay at them moment, Thanks once again, Cheryl
Response: I was just wondering if it had made it to you! ^_^ I'm glad that you like. When I do ATC's, I always hate to just send an envalope, so I like to try to find something that will work with the theme. ^_^ Hope that you're feeling better!
Comment: What wonderful gothic goodies : ) You really spoilt me. I loved absolutely everything. You obviously read my profile and sent those items especially for me. Thanks for being such a generous and thoughtful swap partner.
Response: I'm glad you like! I did read your profile first! What fun!
Comment: Only 3 twists instead of 20 were included with the Journal. Barb cited her CD burner being broken as the reason the 20 twists were not completed. By way of compensation, two twists were extremely high quality and artistic items. The Journal cover was incredibly beautiful, in fact, it was stunning. Therefore, I am giving you a heart.
Comment: Wowsers! What a great package!! And I can't believe you put in a ami pear too!! The box is very beautifully crafted!! LOVE it all, thanks for going the "extra mile"!
Response: I had a lot of fun with this one! I feel really bad that I didn't realize that the deadline was on a holiday until after the mail came by on Saturday though!! Glad that you like the pear! It's my first Ami that turned out really well!
