Comment: Kathy! You are such a wonderful watercolorist! This bunny is the sweetest! I have a rustic twiggy wreath that I change out as the seasons change...it's decorated with twinchies and thrinchies representing the season (or holiday), and this bunny is immediately going to be attached to my winter wreath! Thank you so much for making something SO special for me!
Comment: Wow! Two wonderful little books ! I did the same thing … I so enjoyed making mine I also sent my partner two… yours are so very beautifully made…love the closure on the “memory book with the numbers and beautiful paper and the seahorse with my favorite color has my heart ! From one kathy to another the has to be one of my favorite swaps thank you also for the holiday stickers!
Comment: Hi Kathy and thanks so much for the fold over pockets I received from you. This was a fun and pretty easy swap - perfect for this busy time of year. Love that one pocket is winter and one is spring-y! Pretty papers for both and love all the wonderful goodies you tucked inside! Thanks again for a really fun swap! Happy Holidays!
Comment: 12/17/2 - Update; Kathy, I am loving the ATCs that you send! They are so unique. I just opened day 17... I love the orange bells! I would never think to use orange for Christmas. I am really enjoying your creativity 😃❤ Thank you for joining the swap!
Kathy..got the package yesterday. I love the wrapping! You even put a Polar Bear on One 🐻❄️. Thank you!
I am waiting until the appropriate day to open... I'm glad Dec is finally here! It was getting so hard to wait and see all the wonderful ATCs being sent for the calendar.
Thank you so much for joining the Advent Calendar series. I hope you have been having fun with it. Only 2 left!
Comment: What a pretty swap that came today. I loved the pocket and the tuck-in goodies. Santa stickers were so cute. They really were Australian Santas (wearing shorts on the beach). It made my day. Thank you so much. 💕
Comment: Hi Kathy! What lovely envelope . . . I love the paper you used--it looks like parasols! I wish I had thought of adding a charm to the closure tag as you did--it adds so much. Many thanks for a wonderful piece to add to my collection.
Comment: 💕💕💕💕Wow, Kathy, your ATC is outstanding! (Idiom:”make a long story short). Wishi could give more than one heart. I love the creativity, your drawing (I’m humbled), the neatness, the packaging. Love your insta & youR art! I feel so honored to be a recipient! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!💕💕💕
Comment: Thank you for your bird sketch, it's so funny because I join this swap multiple times, this is the third time receiving a bird sketch haha, nothing wrong with that, I love birds, but it's such a coincidence. Love the stickers you sent too, I liked the butterfly one!
Response: I'm glad you liked the sketch and the stickers! Thanks for the heart. Also, I think the reason you're getting bird sketches is because you say you like birds in your profile... I guess I wasn't the only one who picked up on that! :)
Comment: Great zine, Kathy! I liked each lively carving and how they illustrate the accompanying haiku. My favorite is the bear shadow - the carving on the hands is exquisite, you've done such fine work depicting shadows and depth. Thanks also for the Halloween stickers!
Response: Thanks for the generous compliments and the heart ♥️
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful zine! The stamps with haikus is a brilliant combo! Wonderful stamps and wonderful haikus. A haiku for you: A self published zine -
Made of hand carved rubber stamps -
Inky finger joy
Response: I’m so glad you liked the zine! Thank you for the fantastic haiku and for the heart ♥️
Comment: Hi Kathy and thank you so much for the cute as can be book page envelope with pocket! No worries about the book pages - you made a really great little envelope and decorated it wonderfully. And so many fun goodies inside! I love them all. I have so much stuff in my craft room and am always amazed to receive wonderful bits and pieces that I have never seen before. So happy to add these to my stash! Thanks again for a fun swap.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the envelope and enclosures! Thank you for the heart, too!
Comment: Kathy! How many ways can I say "wow" and "thank you?!" this was a gift in an envelope. From the beautiful "little bird" ATC to the little flip envelope that I am assuming you made. all the items you included. It was the gift that keeps on giving ... one more thing tucked in here and there. I loved it. what a wonderful piece of mail. you made my day! thank you!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! It was fun to put it all together for you. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: HI Kathy, I went ahead and opened mine and put them on a cord across my fireplace. These are so nice, I love the wreath and the zebra!! My granddaughter will love the zebra one as she loves zebras. Can hardly wait to show it to her. Thanks so much and thanks so much for the lovely stickers and the washi tape. take care
Comment: Kathy, these are so adorable! And not only did you send two of the cutest twinchies, but such stellar extras...the gorgeous stitched and layered envelope, the fussy cut forest animals, and (I love that you read my profile!) the tags, of which one is full of roosters! Thank you for an absolutely stellar swap envelope!

Comment: Thanks for this great ATC, pocket and extras. We can identify octopus lairs by finding the stacks of shells and sea urchin skeletons around them. Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute little grim reaper. I just love it. I also like to make the scary things a bit cute. On my instagram you can see my monster mania creations, and as you scroll further back there are the ones I made last year. Thanks again for the cool and cute grim reaper and for the extra stickers.

Comment: What a delightful ATC. Everything went so well with your stamp. I love it. I am blown away with the zine you sent. I am going to display it in my craft room for a very long time. My favorite part is that you incorporated the stamp to its surroundings. For example, the face of the woman was a stamp & the rest of it was drawn. Just so cool. Thank you.
Comment: OMG this is the most adorable piece of art. I absolutely love it - what an inspiration. And the paperclip embellishment with a mini pocket +++ stamps, etc. You made my day the the most amazing way. Thanks!!!!
Comment: Happy swapping! Thank you for the fun extras! Loved your gear ATC, definitely relatable to today's world. People need to get up and put these past events behind them. In some way, it also looked like a virus :)
Response: You’re welcome! I thought the “gears” kind of looked like a virus, too :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome pc with the fire-breathing Chimera on it. I can't believe you carved that stamp! You are so talented! I love the gold splatters that you added. I love that effect but I always forget to add it to my projects until after I've sent them off. Duh! lol
Response: You're welcome! I love those gold splatters, too. Unfortunately, I've come to feel like nothing is ever done until it's got some gold paint on it :)
Comment: What a super swap! Loved the cards… vinyl! Great idea and watermelon was great … loved that you did them yourself! You are quite the artist.. thank you also for the terrific extras… very special swap

I especially appreciate the all little details - the beautiful tag and paper collections and stickers, to the special handmade paper clip! The pocket is so beautifully crafted. I feel so honoured to have received such a wonderful swap! I can’t wait to brag about the world of swap-bot when all my teacher friends see your paper clip in my planner. 🥰 Thank you!
Response: You're welcome and I'm so glad you liked it!
Comment: Kathy, Your envelope of delights came today. Your ATC is delightful and made me want to go out and buy an ice cold watermelon. It's really cute. And the inner envelope of delights was very generous and and I filled it back-up with hearts. Thank you.
Response: You're so welcome! and thanks for the heart(s) :)
Comment: An excellent drawing cute subject nice technique in shading… thank you so much… also the extras were so very generous and I really cannot wait to put them to use in future projects… great swap
Comment: Hi Kathy,
I am sorry to be so late in rating your swap. I'm not being lazy, but have been really sick for the last month. This long illness ended with me in the ER twice and 1 Urgent Care in 5 days. My visit to Urgent Care got me in an ambulance and in the hospital after more evaluation in the ER. They are still unclear about what caused my whole body to tailspin and I could have had seizures or even passed away. This has been scary!
So, I want to say Thank You for your generosity and kindness over this last month. Thank You for your caring swap and for a GREAT swap. Happy Swapping until we meet again.

Comment: This. Is. Amazing. Seriously - your ATC is incredible and I am so, so grateful to have been the recipient of it! I absolutely love what you did with this and each time I look at it, I see a little new detail I didn't see the previous time 'round. Thank you so much! xoxo
Comment: This is a great set to add to my alphabet series! Love the way the eyelet put on the bike wheel and the drawing of the wrapped candy-you are a talented artist! Thanks for the extras-especially the black cats and scotty dog-its all good! Thanks for sharing! Take care and stay safe!
Comment: Hey, wow! How did you fold that pocket-thingy to hold everything? That is ingenious! Thank you for the tea (I love chai), both the big
& tiny postcards, and the rest of everything you sent. Happy swapping!
Response: I followed this easy tutorial to fold the book page to have pockets. (Whenever I play the video it doesn’t start at the beginning so you may have to rewind to get to the part where she shows howto fold.)
I really like these pocket thingies, too!
Comment: Thank you so very much!!!!!! First can I just comment on how beautifully it was put together! Such a wonderful presentation! You are creative! I like all of the items and feel so blessed by the abundance of lovely things. I can't wait to start using them. I wish I could give you more than just 1 heart. You have a kind heart!
Comment: Oh my, oh my! I absolutely love the Elephant Dance Party! Are you kidding me? It’s so well done and just gorgeous. Did I say I love it? Thank you as well for the mini folder with the goodies. The tiny envelope had so many cute mail type ephemera pieces. Thank you so much for spending time creating for me!❤️🥰

Comment: Thanks for the fishes! Great aquarium scene. A love the details in your collage work. Great ATC. Thank you for making and sharing it with me KN! 🤗🐟--- And thanks for the interesting info about the shipping lane. I googled the estuary to get a better feel for the location.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the ATC and the note! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Squeal!!! The ATC and postcards are so awesome! What a perfect name as well, "Don't be a Robot". Love your postcard. Have you made a lot from your art work? I love that you've done that. What company did you use for your postcard? If you made it yourself, what kind of paper did you use. I love the satin feel of the paper on the printed side.
Response: I’m so glad you like them! I made the post card using Moo. They let you make a few of several images to reach the minimum rather than having to make 25 copies of one. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Kathy, Thankyou for the pretty notecard!! This was a fun swap & hope to do another one! Loved your little paper clips thank you for the extra one & the Beautiful stickers!! If I could give you five hearts I would!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Also, delighted with the ATC. I haven't collected them in a while and was thinking of getting into them again when yours arrived.

Comment: thank you Kathy! I absolutely love my postcard. It looks like a painting of a girl in a garden with a cat in her lap and a bird in a cage. And, the note about where you live is so so sweet! I shall cherish it always.
