Comment: Thank you for a beautiful set of glasswares you made. I love the colors and the texture in them. I've already put one of them to use, now to figure out the other two ;) Thank you and Merry Christmas!
Response: Merry Merry to you too! I'm glad to hear you like them.
Comment: Such fun stuff! I'm sorry I forgot to rate you Mom, I know you brought them to me and I opened them in front of you but my dumb but forgot to write you. they're lots of fun, and I can't wait to get some time to use a coloring book. Love you
Response: With everything in your life I bet you don't get to color soon. The best part of the swap was meeting up to give it to you.
Comment: I'm giving this rating because I don't want a stressful holiday. I never got my swap even though tracking said it was left on my porch. It's not your fault someone probably walked away with it & it's not fair of me to give a bad rating on something that was proven delivered. I just want to make it clear that I never received this swap. I was looking forward to getting it, but it is what it is. Enjoy your holidays all the same.
Response: If it has been a postcard I would have resent but if I send another package and the thieves steal it off your porch again all I'm going is enriching them, I can't afford that. BTW this user has 299 1 ratings. 01/2021 Edit to add now up to 302 1 ratings she's got the record I think.
Comment: Love it all! I really thought my quite chubby cat would have no interest in the "tube" but he loves it even though only half his body fits in, he likes hiding in it (like right, your whole back end is out - lol!) The rest of his goodies went in his stocking. Love the little cat backpack - will use it when I go walk - I like small backpacks for that purpose. Have a lovely holiday and thanks again.
Response: That's funny, I bought the toy before I knew he was so big but I'm glad he plays with it.
Comment: Love love love the vase and little dish you made to match!!! I'm really fond of unusual vases anyway, maybe because I have some rose bushes in my yard and I like to put them in vases sometimes. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with me! xo
Response: It was pure luck the glass matched as well as it did. It was a very nice piece of art glass. So happy to hear you like them.
Comment: Thank you so much for the envelope full of gifts. Iâ€™m waiting to open them until Hanukkah, but I am so excited to have something to look forward to. And I love the glass dish; I have just the spot for it in my bedroom. Have a happy holiday season!
Response: I'm happy to hear that you like the lil dish it was an experimental piece. Enjoy the season!
Comment: Andi, thank you SO Much for the gift and ornament! Iâ€™m holding on to the gift until Christmas. I canâ€™t wait to open it! And that beautiful lighthouse ornament, I was so excited when I saw it! Itâ€™s amazing and looks beautiful on my tree which I have already put up! Thank you for going above and beyond, you are so sweet! Thank you for the card and note inside, hope your power wasnâ€™t out too long! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Response: Your lighthouse is one of a kind I just had to try and make one when I saw your profile.The power came back just as the sun came up life in the country is so exciting at times LOL. So happy to hear you like it thanks for rating so promptly!
Comment: Wow! Wow! WOW!!! I'm so tempted to start tearing into these, but I am going to wait (at least until after Thanksgiving). Maybe I'll do a 12 days thing, one each day...we shall see. Thank you so much - they look lovely and festive. I'll thank you more properly after I open them. xo
Response: LOL I find it hard to restrain myself over pretty packages as well.
Comment: You are BULLYING me and basically HARASSING me publicly. Accusing me of lying abput my moms passing???????, just because I didnt announce it privately or publicly before all your BULLYING? That is sick, that is BEYOND sick and you need help.
Heres what I wrote about a swap having to do with my brother:
Hi! Im ur partner for this and had to send this out tonight as opposed to yesterday when ut was due, in mail. I had to ask my bro for some help with details, so i kinda needed to work with his schedule. Hope u like it! Ill send track number asap.
Response: You have to sign on swap-bot to read PM's its been 2 weeks since you signed on last. You sent late to another in the same swap and didn't rate promptly they were both requirements of the swap. I asked about being rating before removing you from the group. Only 1 reminder to rate followed by a week and half later dropping you from group not 4 times as you say. EDIT 7/11/17 You need a dictionary you have not been bullied there was no pressure from me no personal attacks. Unlike your attacks.
Comment: Oh my gosh! What a beautiful and fun piece of art you made!!! I LOVE it! Thank you so much. I've always enjoyed souvenir spoons and even collected them when I was a kid - wish I had kept them. I noticed the tiny roadrunner dangling from the Arizona spoon right away! Thank you for the sweet little glass box and the extra spoons too. A wonderful swap! =)
Response: I bought a bag full of spoons at the thrift store and thought those would make a nice wind chime. Thank goodness part of them had holes already drilled. Happy to hear you like it! ; )
Comment: PRECIOUS! Andi, thank you for the 2 glass cats you made - I love them so much - one looks just like Tillie, my sister-in-law's kitty cat. The stocking is wonderful and will be displayed with pride.
Response: I made a whole litter of cats this year gave em all away except one that looks like my little girl. They'll work for a xmas tree or as sun catchers.
Comment: WOW! what an awesome package! Where do I begin? My favorite by far... The lady bug!!! I will cherish this awesome gift!!!!! You are very talented! You really made my day! The pin cushion is great as is the quilted pot holder! The postcards will be used for sure! I'm always looking for cool cards and you just happened to send me some! Thank you so very much for all of the wonderful gifts. I had such a great time opening all of them! (I couldn't wait!)
May your Holidays be filled with love and Joy! Thanks for making mine brighter!
Response: The ladybug was the profile part of the gift, only one I've made and she turned out so cute she's my favorite too! Thanks so much for the rating.
Comment: I received your swap really early, thank you. I love the ornament thank you so much, that was really thoughtful. I will write more after I open the gift. However if the ornament was pretty great I can imagine the gift is also great. Take care, Happy Thanksgiving! Oh my goodness! I loved the skull, thank you sooo much. It is going into my window.
Response: I really hope you like the gift, I think you will though. Better early than late.
Comment: And I FYI. The house was broken in the back into small pieces, but it was so cute, the napkins were pretty and holder was in great shape. Hate that the PO didn't take better care ...and you had it wrapped so good.
Response: Oh dear I'm sorry! Well I guess its good that I sent more than 1 thing. So sweet of you to rate so nicely Thank-you!
Comment: Hi Andi!
Sorry for the delay in rating; I was on a New England road trip! I love hearing about thrift shop scores and yours was so awesome! You had a great idea for helping your dad with his recovery. One of my favorite blazers to this day is one I picked up at Goodwill many years ago. Enjoy your travels and Happy Swapping! Valeire
Comment: â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸VERY cool PC! I love the look of the place but like you, I won't be putting it on my vacation list!ðŸ˜œðŸ˜œðŸ˜œ I really like the older cards, they seem to be more interesting. LOVE that corner stamp!â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Response: The corner stamp is a great thrift store find. Glad to hear you like it ; )
Comment: Oh My Goodness....I received the cutest little critter in my mail the other day! He is DARLING and Oh, those eyes are killing me!! The eyelashes too!!! I can't wait to display this little guy! Great job and I love the glass pad! Tell me, "How did you make that?" This was a great swap and you did a fantastic job on thinking outside of the box to create this little guy. Hmmmmm, now what should I name him!!!
Response: LOL he does have a hypnotizing look about his eyes huh? How did I do that? I dunno if you mean the glass or his wings. His glass pad was fused in a kiln. His wings are a large plastic spoon cut down the middle with a hack saw. So happy to hear he made you smile.
Comment: Andi, I love the Beach house you made for me! So detailed! and the extras which you really didnt have to do. I think its so cool that I keep getting you as a partner :) You are so creative!
My little village is coming together quite nicely! Thank you! I dont decorate my boxes either. I personally just dont have the time :)
Response: Well you'll have a village soon! I'm very happy to hear you like it. The lil details make them more believable. It comes from my love of doll houses. I enjoy sending to you. ; )
Comment: Oh - My - Gosh, Andi, she's absolutely AMAZING! You did such a great job creating her. Love love Love LOVE her! Thank you so much for making her for me. Every single part of her is just so darn cool. I sure feel spoiled. Thanks again. Big Grateful Hugs to Ya, Sandy
Response: Boy mail sure makes it to you quickly she was only in her coffin for 24 hours before she arrived. I'm so happy to hear you like her she was a lot of fun to make. ; )
Comment: Thank you for resending this one along - I LOVE this Lady Washington card! I have a friend who sails "Tall Ships" - I can only dream of being on one! Have a wonderful day!
*Update 6/24/15 - Woohoo, your first Lady Washington card arrived today so yes, now I have that "matched set" you spoke of! :) Just wanted to let you know she sailed into my port today!
Response: It is a beautiful ship! I'm happy the resend made it ok lol now watch some time in the future the original will arrive and you'll have a matched set. Update. It must have sailed around Cape Horn to get there. LOL!
Comment: Very cool "chunky"!! I love Snow White & Rose Red!! Thank you for including the HCA Story, it had been a long time since I read that version! The German Die-Cuts are SO AWESOME! Thank you so much for sharing!!! (Sorry to be late in rating, but it was certainly a VERY COOL swap!) Thanks again!
Response: Yea! I'm happy to hear you liked it, well you may as well have the remaining part of the sheet that the die-cut came from. This way you have the story to go with the block to explain it its not a common as most fairy tales. Thanks so much PK you are a gem!
Comment: you are too hard on yourself I can use this as a damit doll - you know hit it on the table or whatever when you get frustrated. You really didn't have to give up you swap guy! I made a really simple bunny cause it was my first too I'm not sure I want to make any more either. Not as fun as I thought
Thanks for swapping
Response: LOL well that's good cuz its surely not one of my best efforts. ; )
Comment: Hi Andi, thanks for this very lovely flag...did you dye the fabric? It's very interesting. It will go very nicely with your January one. Please note that they are supposed to be 6" wide - this is 9".
Response: Sorry dunno what I was thinking when I measured.
Comment: Got the third one! I love it; it has Puyallup on it and Spokane; yippee! I've gotten two pc's from you and you say you are ending another one? What a generous swapper you are! Thank you so very much and I look forward to the one with Des Moines on it. If you can't get it, I will definitely understand, no problem! <3<3
Response: LOL 3rd card sent yesterday its better than the other 2. ; )
Comment: Thank you Andi for the Oregon covered bridges postcard. You postcard taught me something new, amazing how many covered bridges were built & used in Oregon. I have been thru a few covered bridges in Vermont, New Hampshire.
Response: I learned not long ago too. I'll have to go look em up some day.
Comment: Hello Andi! I received the 3D Postcard you sent me today!!! ♥ I love it so much and I can't wait to show my son--- he LOVES Eagles! It's funny because my boyfriend and I went to check the mail today and he's NEVER interested in the mail I receive, but as I was looking through my mail he noticed the postcard you sent me and he said it was COOL! Haha! Anyways, thank you for the "cool" postcard and the awesome vintage stamps you used!
Response: I almost sent wolves LOL good thing I picked eagles. ; )
How beautiful! I love the red velvet, the old beads, the dragon on the inside. It's just incredible, Andi, and I keep opening it and studying the bead work and admiring the neat and tiny stitches! It's simply wonderful; thank you so much, my friend!
Edited to add, I'm sorry, I was so excited about the needle book that I neglected to thank you for the snaps, fabric, lace and the candy! Haha, thank you, Andiâ™¥
Response: Yeah I'm very happy to hear you like the needle case. It was made with you in mind! Thanks so much for the sweet comment.
Comment: You are a wild and crazy woman! Love the spy squirrel on the back, though you're making me more paranoid than ever. ;oP
I wish I could get my Buffy to eat canned cat food. She'll lick the juices or gravy, that's it. She only wants to eat her dry food, people tuna, and her Saturday night treats. Oh yeah, and a bite or two of Keebler's Townhouse crackers. ;o) She's old, and picky.
I'm going to put this squirrel with the other one - right on the table where I
do my postcarding. :o)
Response: My cats do the same thing I should just buy em gravy but when I do they don't like it. I couldn't resist sending another squirrel.
Comment: Wow , Thank you so much for an awesome swap package!! I totally felt spoiled, & I think you went way beyond the call of duty. Lol :) I loved everything you sent,m the Coke Bank was super neat. Happy Valentines Day & Happy Swapping!! Thank you
Comment: Thank you So Much, If i could give you 5 More Hearts I would, LOVE the PC so creative of you ! Ive been looking online to buy Stamped PCs do you sell theses as well ?!I am hanging this one on my PC wall :)
Response: Aww shucks thanks! I think it made a neat card. ; )
Comment: Andi, this swap deserves 5 hearts!!! The pendant, that you made, is fantastic! I want to learn how to do beading like that! Thanks too for the great extra PCs and the stamps too! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Its simple to do, that ones Mohawk style. Always a pleasure to swap with you! ; )
Comment: Thanks for the great swap! the sci-fi museum is one of my favorite Seattle treasures! One of my other favorites is Mighty-O Doughnuts..too bad they don't have a squished penny machine! Keep up the awesome, Andi!
Response: Thanks so much! â™¥â™¥â™¥ it is a cool place to explore
Comment: What a great swap! Love the print on the FQ, am looking forward to the teas...and enjoyed your note:) I hope the New Year is a good one for you. We are finally looking more like winter here. We have a good amount of snow, so it looks beautiful.....but it's a bit cold now..
Response: Likewise yours was great too thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful package!!! I just signed up for a rainbow mini quilt swap and I can't wait to use some of what you sent for that. I'm from WA too:) Silverdale - up near Bremerton but I've been in the desert of Albuquerque since 1986.Thanks again!
Response: Oh good worked out well then! Must be Karma ; )
Comment: This is the most awesome doll I have ever received!! She is just beautiful. She shines with life and energy. I thank you so very much for such a wonderful swap. You deserve multiple hearts for this. Alas, I can give only one. But it is deeply heart felt.
Response: I'm gonna call that one Flame Dancer. I'm happy to hear you liked her and a pleasure to meet you! ; )
Comment: Hi Andi. You're package arrived safely, yay! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE the vintage chain purse. It is one of the most beautiful things I have EVER received in a swap, and you are too kind to have given it to me. It is SO me, and you did a fantastic job. You could have sent that by itself and I would have been in awe. The other things were really cute too, especially the glass pendant. I'm wondering what the beads on sting are though? Is it a bracelet? It's really pretty but tiny...I can't get it over my hand (and I have small hands). Regardless, I like it. :) Also, I would NEVER rate you down for sending me something you made, as opposed to something store-bought. I appreciate hand-made and vintage items more than store-bought ones any-day. And if anything, you should be rated UP, not DOWN, for sending something that cost more than the required swap says. Thanks again so much for a beautiful and heartfelt package. It really made my night. :).
Response: yippy it made it! despite no unit number whew! The beads are an antique hank of seed beads take em off the threads to use them. I am so happy.
Comment: Thank you for the excellent package of sewing goodies plus the blue and white vase -- it does with my small collection of blue and white ceramics. The three red fabrics are just the sort I'll use and of course ribbon and buttons welcome extras. Feels a bit like Christmas!
Comment: THANK YOU sooo much Andi for the gorgeous gold stocking and for the two gifts! Ok.. I peeked at the beautiful heart necklace, but did not open the other gift...yet ;) I love it all ( especially the way you coordinated the gold wrap with the gold stocking! Merry Christmas and blessings, Heidi
Comment: Thank you for the resend. The FL is wonderful. Have a great Thanksgiving!
UPDATE! My kitchen is being cleaned and found your original post card, post marked 15AUG14, in a box I would never have looked. I'm very sorry, but glad it was found.
Response: Take care! Would have resent months ago if you'd told me sooner.
Comment: Thank you for these beautiful balloons. I would love to see this festival in person. I am so afraid of heights, but I might just take a ride in one of them if someone came with me, maybe. hmmm.
Response: Ditto I like to keep my feet on the ground ; )
Comment: WoW WoW 2 things from you in one DAY.. RED Letter MAIL DAYâ€¦â€¦ I love the selection of postcards for the Scavenger Huntâ€¦. I love Oregonâ€¦. have only been there twice but will go back!!!! Happy Swapping and thanks for making me smile today! LOVE THE BEADED shoes!
Comment: Hello and thank you for the Michigan PC. I have family in MI - I wonder how they are fairing this time of year and the winter season is just beginning. I complain about the cold here in Southern California, but we've got NOTHING to cry about compared to "back East"!! Take care and have a wonderful winter season!
Comment: I loved the PC and I loved hearing about all your special fur babies. No one knows kitty love until they have bottle fed an orphaned kitty. I have done 2 during my rescue and they were a joy to raise. Thank you for loving so many kitties.......=0)
Comment: Thank you :) Sorry It took me so long to rate for this, it was overlooked and left in my desk drawer! Also, I'm not sure where the heart disappeared to, but it should be back now :) Again, very sorry, I usually rate as soon as I receive a swap!
Response: I hope it didn't take 2 months to arrive lol
Comment: Ooohh, thank you so much for your package, you surprised me!
This summer I've bought some dresses (after wearing a lot of comfortable jeans and shirts) with bright colours: the necklace will be perfect to one of them.
The card with shirt buttons: from which century are they? You can't buy them for 10 cents now, I guess.
And the yellow/green wheels: they made me smile, they remind me of my childhood. We called them Spirograph, I've had a large box with all sorts of measures of wheels and I created a lot of drawings in lots of colours. Now I will need a little bit of practice and a suitable pen!
Thanks for being my partner!
Response: I'm happy to hear you like the goodies on a string! 20th century buttons. ; )
Comment: Oh, Andi....I screamed with joy over my souvenier spoon from Holland with the movable windmill on the handle - my first spoon from Swap-bot. How sweet of you to include a smashed penny from Seattle as a bonus. I'd give your a zillion hearts if it were possible. You are surely a swappers dream. Thank you.
Response: LOL I"m very happy to hear that it was in the very last corner of the store I had to explore.
Comment: Andi...What a beautiful view of Tacoma, WA....I have never been to the west coast although I have traveled plenty compliments of the USAF. Love the vintage stamps you used...THANKS and have a great week ...Charlene
Comment: So...I didn't look at who sent me this swap until after enjoying it. You popped into my mind because I had remembered you liked The Great Wave by Hokusai from your profile since I had you for a swap recently, then I realized it was you, Andi, who had sent it and LOL'ed in front of the post office for about a minute. Anywhoo..thank you so very much for the Space Needle penny. I, too am obsessed with World's Fairs and only got the monorail one when visiting Seattle! Keep up the awesome!
Response: That's right I got a great PC of Hokusais from you the other day! Loved it! ; )
Comment: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this weird, gross and funny PC of an Oregon slug!!! It's going on the bulletin board! Thank you so much for sending it to me. I'm also glad I could help you out and you could finally send it to someone! lol
Comment: Thank you Andi for the notepad you sent me :) These things always come in handy! And I really like the owl/birds stickers you added. What does Ex Libris stand for? Kind greetings from Belgium, Aline
Response: Thanks for the nice comment the stickers are bookplates to mark your books.
Comment: I LOVE the postcards! And the stamps--where do find stamps that are not the ordinary ones? I checked with our post office just last week to see if they had something different then the normal and they didn't. I get mailings from the U S with such neat stamps. I need to know the secret to getting them. Thanks so much!!!
Response: E-bay is the secret to the out of print stamps. If you search far enough you can get them at face value. ; ) Thanks so much for the nice comment!
Comment: TOTALLY Awesome!!!
THANKS sooo much for the great
postcard: I happen to have the
matching stamp! obviously, you have a terrific supply of fantastic vintage ones yourself ~ they keep inspiring us to crank out the snail mail, huh?
wishing you lots of mailbox delights!!!
Response: Yeah it cool that theres a matching stamp for the card. I couldn't find the space needle stamps the day I mailed that one. Good you have 1 already eh? Thanks so much!
Comment: Sorry for the late reply BUT! this is by far the most awesome postcar+stamp combination EVER!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! (yes, it really needs all the caps :D). The card is beautiful but the stamps!! They are just stunning, I'm so happy :)) I GIVE YOU A 10 AND 1000 HEARTS!!
Response: The stamps all came from swaps here I just took their pic with my scanner. Thanks so much! what a sweet comment. ; )
Comment: Thank you so much Andi for being host of this great swap, celebrating National Post Card Week, sending to me your special NPCW postcard for the swap. Putting your PC up on display in my apt. Great Swap! How I enjoyed it!
Response: I had a lot of fun too. Thanks for joining.
Comment: LOL. thank you for the card! Oh I love it! Thank you for spending so much time on this swap:D LOL I love swapbotting and make sure I am on top of things :D I check in the morning and get them out as soon as I check. I got my postcard box already to go and stamps lol. Lately I didn't have anything to do lol, no swaps at all. I like to stay busy hehe. I am learning about pen pals and friendship books. so i can expand, but my favorite is the postcards! Thank you sooo much for allowing me to play with you. Catch you on the Swap Side :D
Comment: Hi Andi, Thank you for the great postcards. You can see them at www.nationalpostcardweek.com Thank you for adding the extra swaps. It helps to get the word out. Happy National Postcard Week, Demaris
Comment: Hello my dear friend! Thank you so much for the nice cards you sent! I love the Chihuly card a LOT. We saw his work in person here at the Franklin Park Conservatory about 10 years ago. He lost his eye in a car accident--I assumed it was from the glass but it was a car accident. I'm also crazy for the A in W card--so cute. You come up with cards I've never seen before! The JFK is outstanding and the vintage 4th of July boy is precious. Thanks again, Andi. . . you made this really fun for me!
Response: Hey its hard to beat you with cards you send the best! Thanks so much for the nice comment ; )
Comment: Thank you Andi for a great assortment of pc's!!! I didn't even know there was a National Postcard Week!!! Love all the stamps you used on the envelope too! Awesome!! Beautiful photography on the Snow Doughnut one!!
Response: What a nice comment the snow doughnuts are rare I was lucky to get that one.
Comment: Hotdog! Thank you for the awesome cowboy boot & spur PC. I love it! I also liked the triangular postage stamp. Can I ask what country you mail it from?
thank you for swapping with me.
Response: Its a vintage US postage stamp we're in the same country ; )
Comment: Hello, i received your cards. What a lovely stamps do you have in your country.
I send the card tomorrow back to you. I do have a postage stamp next to your beatiful stamp because I sent your card to the USA (is abroad), otherwise it will not be accepted by our post office.
Response: I'm sorry I didnt think of what postage would cost you. The vintage stamps are neat!
Comment: Thank you so much Andi! I really appreciate the fact that you put the stamps on the envie instead:) Love all of the postcards, especially stonehenge! The stamps on the envie are just lovely, thank you<3
Response: I knew you wanted them that way I'm happy to hear you like them ; ) Having stonghenge is fun, its my way of public art I cant see it from the house.
Comment: Thank you for the card! It is more 3D than the other 3D cards I've seen (if you know what I mean!) love the stamps! Are they vintage? I know what you mean about your tuxedo cat not knowing she's a cat. Henry is the same way! Sometimes he acts like a dog, and sometimes like a human! (With ESP!)
Response: Thank you for the nice comment and rating! Yeah it is a crazy cat ; )
Comment: Thank you for the postcard, and for typing out your message! I have problems reading handwriting just on a general basis. It was very thoughtful of you!
Would you mind telling me what state you're from?
Response: LOL mine is bad folks should be happy I type LOL. Thank you for the nice rating ; )
I'm in a state of confusion usually...
Comment: I love this image as well and I can empathize with the boatmen; I was once in a cyclone at sea. Thank you for putting a lot of extra effort into your PC offering! It shows! You deserve a second heart!
Response: Aww thanks! Its hard to write that much so I did them as a batch all alike. Thanks so much for the nice rating! ; )
Comment: Hello my friend!!
Thank you for the SWEET cards. My hubby and I both said, "Awwwww" when we saw the little baby owl--so cute! I'm in the love with the b/w card of the little girl looking at the statue. Thanks, too, for the Tom Kitten card! I love kitties!
Response: The kitties made me send kitty cards they have me hostage here ya know... Thanks so much for being a nice friend ; )
Comment: Love the vintage Mickey. When I was a small child my father read me a book about Mickey on a camping trip seeing America. This reminds me of the illustrations in that book from back in the 1950's. Thank you.
Response: I thought he was a bit different Mickey from Belgium. Thanks for the nice comment and rating
Comment: Andi, I never expected to get such a unique and high quality craft from this swap. The necklace is stunning, and I think it will be fun to find ways to use the dishes. They are made even more special with the note that says how they were created. And I've been starting to collect the stamps from packages recently. Yours are my first vintage additions. Thank you thank you!
Response: I'm very happy to hear you like what I sent. ; )
Comment: LOL! Whole bunches of hearts to you and your painted cats... I definitely want to try this on Sam Dustball! Love your Stonehenge and your secret is safe with me.... I laughed when I read about you painting rocks like petroglyphs and planting them for people to find. I do this too! I hand carved some rubber stamps with fake petroglyphs and stamped them on some nice flat river rocks. Stashed them in piles of leaves on the river path & had so much fun thinking about the finders... I checked when I walked that way next & they've all been picked up. I'll send you a photo. Love the glass marble idea too.
Response: A kindered spirit! I love it! Thanks so much for sharing lol I do love it ; )
Comment: Oh my gosh Andi! This piece of art is amazing. I am so honored to be the recipient and was so glad to meet you. It will be hung in my apartment in a place of honor. I also adore the extra necklace and will wear it with pride.
Response: I'm happy you like it and glad we got a chance to meet, gave me a chance to pick up more seattle PCs.
Comment: I love this PC. . . I live 1-1/2 miles from Mount Vernon and go there periodically for lunch with friends and to shop their gift shop. . . but have been on the tour of the Estate --- it is fabulous and it really is a nice house! I actually can see the fireworks they set off on July 4th from my house :-) Thanks for the great PC . . . it's one of my favorite places in my area.
Response: Well cool I'm glad I picked that card for you. ; )
Comment: Thank you for the pretty card, and the music page. I love getting swaps from people close by, its makes it special kinda. I have not been to yelm in a while! Hows it going down there? Happy Valentines day, I will be sure to eat tons of chocolate!
Response: Yeah you are nearby same old stuff down here. Yelm gateway to nowhere! LOL
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful package. Soooo many neat things that I will put to use. Kind of been in the mood to do some scrapbooking and this just might get me moving. This was a really fun swap, thanks for hosting it. Keep up the good work. Thanks again.
Response: Yeah I'm happy you like it all. It was a fun swap to dream up thanks for joining! ; )
Comment: Beautiful bead work by your brother. I don't bead as much now because my fingers are arthritic. I still had my heart pitty-pat at the thought of more beads, lol. I guess we will never get over it huh. Thank you for the card, postcard and music sheet.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the card he did do very nice work. Ditto on the hands too, it's getting hard to work anymore.Thank you so much for the nice comments and heart! ; )
Comment: Andi, guess what arrived in the mail today? Thank you for the tulip card and stamps. Writing in big letters can be a good thing, it's certainly better than having handwriting too small to be legible! The address was half torn from the card, it's a miracle it arrived and I am so glad it did :)
Response: OH dear I am glad it made it too! I'll start taping them down better. Thanks for the nice rating and heart! : )
Comment: What a perfect choice. I'm sure Rachel Ray will brighten our mealtimes. I loved your note, joined one of your swaps after reading your profile (LOL), and had to give your daughter a star in your honor. Thank you so much for such a sweet swap.
Response: Oh thanks very much on her behalf. I think she does part of those swaps for me since I dont have time to read if I start i cant put a book done until its done. Thanks for the sweet note and rating!
Comment: I loved all your Valentine's fun, the card is very cute and the cupids are awesome along with delicious chocolates, yummy. I also enjoyed all the postage stamps. Thank you, Valentine's Day, the only day when eating chocolate is mandatory. Have a lovely day, Doskie Fay
Comment: Thanks for the neat Mt Rushmore postcard Momma, and the bison stamp being among the many stamps. I didn't know there was a 1 1/2 cent stamp.
Response: Once upon time there was, I thought about shorting it a half cent to see what the post office would do but that wouldn't have met requirements. So its got a half cent stamp too. Your the perfect person to send em to. Had to use a big card so they would fit. Love ya babe ; )
Comment: Thank you so much for the Mount St. Helens postcard! I was 14 when the mountain erupted. I was living in VA but I remember hearing about it and the ash cloud circling the world. I have a bottle with ash in it I got off of Ebay a few years ago. Thanks!!
Response: I use to sell ash from St. Helens on ebay Toutle Dark and Selah light. We still have plenty on hand if you ever want more LOL Thanks so much for the nice comment! ; )
Comment: Thank you so much for the Pc's and the stamp I love them all!! :-) Thank you sooo much for all the cards in my "Likes"!!

Response: Thanks for the nice rating glad you like em! ;)
Comment: Hi Andi!
LOVE the cards you sent! I'm just crazy over the vintage ones. I buy from an ebay seller who sells vintage cards and I've NEVER seen these. The bridge? Yes . . . it looks CRAZY high and long. My daughter, Laura, lives in San Fran and has a phobia re bridges--not too convenient for her with the Golden Gate and the Oakland Bay Bridge! Thank you for choosing so thoughtfully for me.
Response: You can find lots of good stuff on ebay. Stamps cards just have to be a savvy shopper. I like the old cards too. Thanks so much for the nice comment and rating ; )
Comment: Hello! Thanks for the AWESOME stamp on the card! I love the card! But living in the USA, there's only so much stamp variety that comes around, and I've never gotten a 37 cent stamp before. it's awesome. thanks! carpe diem!
Response: Ebay and just looking around and finding unused postage. They are cool arent they? LOL thanks so much! : )
Comment: Hi Andi, sorry that I clicked the wrong swap title & rated you earlier. I just received you lovely lovely Bubba Gump Shrimp Co card with amazing stamps today! â™¥â™¥â™¥ â™¥â™¥â™¥ if i could rate you more than just 1 heart! Thanks for the best card i received so far â‰§â—‡â‰¦
Response: OK this comment makes more sense. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Wow!!! Thank you very much for the absolutely beautiful ATC!!! I absolutely love it!!! The layered background is absolutely amazing, and the little bird is soooo sweet!!! It is so unique, that you used the music sheet for the back... great idea!!! Thank you for all the amazing extras as well!!! Your happy mail totally made my day/ a whole week, I feel sooooo lucky that I got matched with you!!! I wish I could give you a hundred hearts!!! \(^^)/
Response: Aww what a nice thing to say. I thought it turned out nice too. Thanks so much for the nice comment and rating! ; )
Comment: One stamp is so poorly cut out that it is useless. On first look I thought it was merely a photo of a stamp but as the requirements say 10 stamps, on or off paper - and nothing about quality/condition of the stamp I am rating a five.
Response: I am sorry one stamp is too damaged to use. Iâ€™m a newbie to sending stamps and donâ€™t have many of them yet that is why I joined the swap for newbies.
Comment: Great atc! Love the colors and design of this wonderful "crazy quilt". Very nice job! Thanks so so much for the musical sheets I was just going to download something like that for another swap! You are a true angel ... Thanks also for the wonderful "mt. rainier" it brings back great memories and the postcard and the really nice page...you have truly "made my day"
Response: LOL (tucking my horns up under my hat and hiding my tail) I must have been reading your mind. Thanks so much for the nice comment and rating ; )
Comment: Thank you so much for the great ATC! I knew exactly what your username was when I first saw the card. You did an awesome job! And thank you so much for the Girl Scout Handbook! I can't wait to look through it more thoroughly!
Response: I got an easy name LOL. The book seemed like it would be enjoyed at your house Thanks for the heart ; )
Comment: Awww you gave me 2!! They are so neat!! I don't think I could bring myself to write on them since they're so old so I will be tucking them neatly into my International SMASH book that I keep special postcards in! Thank you so much!!
Response: It has been a while since the Seattle and New York World's Fairs I suppose. Its nice lil pieces of history can survive. I'm glad you like them ; ) Thanks for joining my swap!
Comment: Thank you for the very nice pc. We have an antique carousel here in Gage Park. It was originally in an amusement park that we had here. When they closed the City bought the carousel, restored it and set it up in the park.
Response: Oh thats great! I have a 3/4 size carved wooden horse in my front room not from an actual carousel. Its big enough for an adult to sit on. Thanks for the nice ratings and heart!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcard of the Santa Monica Pier. I have heard of it but never have gone there. It looks like a fun place. I hear you about our property, I am hoping with the economy that our doesn't close. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful bookmark! And I love the extra ephemera (vintage, yay!), lovely card you made for me and the wonderful turquoise cabs! Thank you for such a very thoughtful package of lovely goodies! :o)

Comment: What a beautiful Santa. I've always wanted to try stained glass. Thank you. Happy Holidays.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap you sent. I absolutely ADORED the wire ribbon you used on the top of the jar, and the explanation of different things in your letter was really nice to read. Have a very Merry Christmas!
Response: Thank you for the pretty butterfly jar you sent full of goodies and the heart ; )
Comment: Omg!! Super amazing and so beautiful!! I was floored at the simplicity and beauty of your ornaments. I only wish I was that talented. Thank you for being a part of holidays from this year and forward.
Response: I dunno about talent they are reproductions of antique ornaments. I copy well LOL I'm glad to hear you like them thanks so much for the heart. ; )
Response: Mixed feelings on this one I just angeled you for my swap.
Guess I better get a heart eh? LOL I just found out you send what I made and sent to you, you in turn sent as something you made wow.
Comment: I am so impressed with your cards. You took 2 very modern, current postage stamps and made them look like vintage pieces of art. If you had not mentioned the age of your stamps in your apology, I am not sure I would have been able to notice. But I also used that blue butterfly postage stamp. You did a great job, and some great art. I hope you participate in more atc swaps. You can find more in my profile HINT HINT
Response: Oh good, I'm relieved that they are ok. I use a lot of premade bits and dont want folks to think I'm a sticker slapper. It was a fun swap to make. Thanks so much for the heart! ; )
Comment: Oh my gosh your card is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously!!!!!!! So cute!!! I want to frame it and hang it every Christmas. In fact, I think that is exactly what I will do!

Response: LOL I'm glad I could Spruce up your tree. Thank-you for the heart. : )
Comment: Thanks for the cards. I was surprised that one came NOT naked, but was a card that had been sent to you, but then I saw the stamps and was glad you had included it--one of the stamps was of Crazy Horse, and I had just seen a show about him, so that was kind of cool. Thanks.
Response: I hadn't meant to grab one I'd been sent I though they where all blank I guess I had too many cards out at once. I'm sorry. Crazy House was quite a man. Thanks for the rating! ; )
Comment: I received your wonderful envelope full of goodies today!! I love every single thing! By far the coolest stuff I have ever received! Thank you so much.
