Comment: Thank you soo very much for all the wonderful supplies you sent! =) I love everything and I really love that you sent little images of the things you have made! =)
What a perfect little package! =)
Comment: Wow! What a generous package! For some reason I cannot give you a star....but please know that I want to give you oodles of stars. The care and quality you put into my package is so nice to be the recipient of. Thanks so so much! The star function came back...so yay! Still would like to give you oodles!
Comment: Thanks so much! I the dresses and skirts and the barrettes! Thanks so much for including a picture of your girls! Hildie is very happy with her springy package, but she has agreed to share with her sisters (she's a real sweetie ;)). I will send you a link for pics asap!
Thanks again! <3 <3 <3
Comment: Thanks for the great fabrics and notions Maddy - I love all the colors that you sent. I love the photos of the garments that you have made also. I plan to make some pieces for the 16" dolls that I collect. Hope to see you again on swap-bot! =)
Comment: Thank you for the ATC! The holder/card you sent it in is very neat. Where did you find it?
Response: It is just a blank card. I cut slits with a craft knife so I can slip in the ATC. I find it good when a swap is 1 ATC only, and it allows me to send it at the "Card Only" rate, about 70 cents cheaper. The australian postage to the States has just gone up to $2 standard letter!
Comment: Your 8's are fantastic! Cutting an eight out of one paper and gluing it on another paper and stamping on them. I found it quite innovative and will probably copy your technique in future endeavors. Awesome!
Comment: Really lovely ATC's, I love the way you did the shape of Australia using Australia stamps, cool!
Also thank you thank you for the cupcake material, that was so kind of you. Of course i love it:)
Comment: Thank you so much for the beauitful ATCs. I'm so glad you liked my first set sent.
To tell you the truth I don't even know where Perth, Ont is. I've never been there.
The postcard is fabulous. Thanks again!
Comment: Thanks sooo much for my ATC's. The one about you is lovely. I really like the shells and such. As for the one about me...you nailed it! I couldn't help giggling about the belly dancing Steeler fan! It was much needed laughter. You rock!!!
Response: I had great fun making it, especially doing the "research" for it! My thanks go to Google...
Comment: Thank you so very much for your beautiful ATC you sent me. And thank you as well for the additional papers you thoughtfully included with my package as well. How nice of you!!
Thanks again... I loved it!
Comment: My late reply is my lameness, and isn't a reflection on you! Your package was inspiring, and I loved the design direction you took with them, and thought the yarn swatches added that extra touch. I'd totally swap with you again!
Comment: Hi Maddy. I think your ATCs are great! I really like the way you made so much from paint chips - even the backing. It's not too early for season's greetings. I'm going to put your card up as my first Christmas card. Thanks again. Lindy
I got your Flower Fabric ATC today and it was awesome. Thanks for the paper flower and the flower stamps. The stamp on the envelope was awesome too as I collect them. Thanks for making this a great swap.
Comment: Thank you for the letter. I enjoyed reading it. It was very sweet to include stickers for my son and daughter and also a magnet and postcard. That was very generous of you. Thank you so much!! :D
Response: So glad you enjoyed it all. This is my first time in a swap like this but I found it surprisingly easy to write to someone I dont know!
Comment: Thank you for such a creative ATC. I love the origami kangaroo, the heart is for your daughter. Also the envelope arived open on one end so I am thankful the ATC did not fall out. Your note was also in there.
Response: I am so glad you got the ATC in one piece. I passed on the heart to my daughter. Thank you!
Comment: Maddy, they're stunning! You must have had a lot of experience with ATCs. I'm inspired... Hope you're having a nice and cool summer over there in Perth!
Response: Thanks Karin! I too hope we have a nice summer, but not yet! it is winter here in the southern hemisphere but really pleasant, up to 22C during the day. Hope Japan isnt too hot for you, and also that we can swap again.
Comment: Hello Maddy,
Thank you for the incredible 3 blue/indigo close-up photo ATCs you sent me for this swap. They are so unique and different, that I know I will not be receiving any repeats of what you photographed. I like the little pictures you put on the back of your ATCs to help the recepient understand what he/she is looking at on the ATC side of the card. I am excited to add these 3 ATCs to my ever-growing and ever-changing ATC personal collection and to the more specific to the ATC Photo Close-Ups. Thank you for sharing your photography skills with me through this swap. I think this is our first time to swap. I look forward to future opportunities for us to swap together. Until we meet again--continued successful swaps.
Comment: thanks for all of the info.my son enjoyed looking at them with me. He wants to know if he tasmanian tiger would have bitten people?
Response: The Tasmanian Tiger (not a tiger really, but a marsupial)fed mostly on small animals and was generally shy of humans. It is now extinct, its proper name is Thylacine, your son can look it up on Wiki!
Comment: Thank you so much for the very nice ladybug ATCs. I especially want to thank you for the additional ATCs you sent me of your 2 beautiful border collies! They are great looking dogs and you sound like you just love them a whole lot!
Comment: thanks so much for the fun ATCs- I love the ads that you picked- crazy how quickly things change- my daughters and I always get a laugh when Julia Roberts pulls her huge cell phone out of her purse in runaway bride! thanks for the fun!
Comment: I love the cards, the little flowers attached with brads are so delicate and lovely. And I love "Bambi," too. (The book it's based on, by Felix Salten, is also really lovely.) And thanks for the great postcard, too. I'm going to tape it to my mirror. :)
I got your TV or Movie ATC swap today and the card was awesome. I love all the stamps you sent as I collect them.
The post card was awesome too as was the stamp on the envelope. What an awesome swap from you!! Thanks so much!!
Comment: I LOVE these! The story is SO cool! Reading the ads themselves was fun too, as are the names you chose! I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the jewelry you sent. I'm going to sew it to a ribbon and make it into a headband. Also, I love welsh's! My favorite riding horse was a welsh. I got him to pull and he ended up having the most beautiful gaits and was such a sweetie. Thanks so much for the whole package and the letter!
Comment: Maddy, Thank you so much for your lovely letter and package. I love your ATC's especially the one with the painted frogs. Thanks for the stained glass fairy cards as well. Your thoughtfulness has made my day. Good luck with the foal and I hope our paths cross again. Lindy
Comment: Hello Maddy, Thank you for the 3 ATCs you sent me for this swap. I really liked the uniqueness of each photo and the great photography. I am looking forward to adding these to my ever-growing ATC collection and more specifically to my ROY G BIV--YELLOW collection. I also want to let you know that I appreciate the two bookmarks you sent along with the ATCs. I liked both--one made by you and one that reflected info about Australia. Thank you for sharing your creativity with me through this swap. I think this is our first time to be partners. I look forward to being partners at future swaps. Until then--Happy Swapping!!!!
Response: Thanks, Barb, for your encouraging comments. I also look forward to swapping with you again. I have pics for the green swap already and looking for blue, not hard as blue is my favourite colour.
Comment: Hi Maddy,
I got your package today and I adore all the wonderful things you sent me. It seems like it must be time for me to start planning a Great Downunder quilt because now I have some lovely fabrics to get me going!
Response: A Great Downunder quilt sounds wonderful! Maybe I can send some more fabrics in another swap later on!!!!
