Comment: What a beautiful little Mushroom House! I absolutely love it and the envie and the card. I'd give five hearts if I could. And thank you for encouraging words. You've made my Sunday!!
Response: I'm glad you like the ATC. I really enjoyed making it for you and think it's great that we got to trade a monster for a mushroom :-) Thanks for the kind rating. Looking forward to swapping with you again in the future.
Comment: I love your tags! They are so artsy and beautiful. I'm going to have a hard time deciding which to keep and which to abandon. Thank you for my Happy Mail Day.
Response: My pleasure, buddy. Thanks for hosting this swap and for helping me learn to love tags :-)
luv2kraft rated for CPG 2023 Lil Monsters ATC - US on Sep 26, 2023
Comment: Thank you got the wonderful Lil monster.Extra special for being personalized. Extra hearts if I could. Love the little house mouse card. That's how I like my green olives.lol .

e2java rated for CPG: A Pesky Guest - Global on Sep 14, 2023
Comment: Thank you for the very long list of your requirements. I think it is very reasonable. It seems that we have a lot in common with one exception - I am an extrovert so I might be too draining for you. The funniest part is that I left your letter on the kitchen counter and my husband read it. I received a text message from him asking if this was serious and did we need to rent an RV and head to Memphis :)
Response: LOL! I felt bad when I finished your letter because I didn't even want to be around "me" by the end of it. What a jerk! Ha! Thanks for participating. It got me back into swapping after an extended break. Hope to see you again under better circumstances :-)

Comment: This swap blew me away! Not only is the Tangle Book of Kells great, but the cards are over the top awesome. (I didn't even know they existed.) Your generosity will help to restart my lagging tangleosity. Thank you soooooo much! You deserve a big bunch of hearts.
Response: You're welcome! So glad you liked it. And thank YOU for being awesome, in general :-)
jamicam rated for Private Birthday Swap on Jan 19, 2022
Comment: WONDERFUL! What a perfect birthday package to receive from you. I feel so seen and understood. Each item is exactly right and filled me with joy. And the wrapping paper was so pretty! A wonderful swap – thank you so very much!!! If you ever want to do a private swap again, I’m all in. Happy Birthday Allison!!!!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your birthday gifts! That was lots of fun and I'm thankful that you floated the idea out there. We'll have to do it again next year. :-) I will be opening mine this evening and will be back to rate you then. Have a wonderful birthday!
LizzyJo rated for PVT: Slogging To Journalia on Aug 16, 2021
Comment: What an awesome explosion of color, shapes and texture! It takes my breath away! Thank you for sharing your art journal adventure with me. (It always amazes me how different our swaps turn out.)
Response: Our swaps are quite different, aren't they? I'm glad you like my frenetic approach to art journaling. I should have warned you not to look at it before bedtime. I'm afraid the burst of activity will keep you up all night. LOL! Thanks for the rating, matey!
Comment: This is really lovely, Allison, thank you. And a nice, neat back as well! Xx
Response: Yay! I'm so glad it arrived. Thanks a bunch for swapping with me. That was a fun challenge :-)
LizzyJo rated for PVT: Learning Curve on Mar 26, 2021
Comment: I love your Learning Curve project. It's so cute! It's interesting how things can turn out better than you pictured even though they take so much longer than you thought they would. And that prep can be a lot of work and cost so much. Thank you so much for an awesome swap that was a surprise for both of us.
Response: I enjoyed making this for you and am relieved and excited that it was finally delivered :-) I love swapping with you. It's always a good experience! ♥
phillaine rated for N&T: Lucky Charms - RED on Feb 26, 2021
Comment: Thank you for another delightful swap. I think my favorites are those with the tiny flowers / flowers & hearts and the adorable Holly Hobby fabric--I know a couple of swap-bot friends who love her and I have ideas of what to make already! ♥ I really enjoyed this swap and hope you'll host more of these charm swaps in the future. Thank you!
Response: I do plan to host more . . . after I can get back into shopping at actual stores. My stash is a bit pathetic right now. I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. I had fun putting it together for you (after coming out of my brain fog) and look forward to the next round. Thanks for the nice rating!
Petaltea rated for MAS: A Colour Each Month - February on Feb 24, 2021
Comment: Ahhh, I love it! So beautiful!! Thank you. I will cherish it.
Response: I'm glad you like it! Thank you for the heart :-)
LizzyJo rated for PVT: WiTH YelloW on Feb 19, 2021
Comment: I love your psycho-neuro yellowness! Both the envie and the card are very cool. And Hamlet was very pleased to get mail from Coco. (He gave it a good sniff.) Thanks for hosting this one. It's nice once in a while to work on whatever you feel like at the moment.
Response: I loved doing this swap. I think I'm over the psycho babble now, but it was a fun experiment and a great little rabbit hole for my watercolors to travel down. Thanks for doing this with me! P.S. Coco is super happy to hear that Hamlet was pleased with his mail. :-)

LizzyJo rated for Cookieeeees! on Dec 30, 2020
Comment: Guess what arrived today! My cute cookieeeee! (I was beginning to wonder if the hungry snail mails ate it up on the way here.) I like the blue frosting, silver balls, and pretty ribbon. Thank you for the calorie free treat. And the card it came in was sweet, too.
Response: Did you try the silver balls? They're tasty! Thanks for the rating :-)
