Steinway5 rated for Book Page Envelope with Pocket on Nov 28, 2021
Comment: Oh dear!!! I am so remiss in rating you for your pretty envelope!! Please accept my apologies! I thoroughly enjoyed your paper creation and the most gorgeous ephemera you included - especially the luxe stamp stickers!! I cannot wait to find the perfect place to use them. I had heard of using paper napkins as a decorating technique, but had never seen it in action, so I was very pleased to find an example to examine! You did a lovely job indeed. And I am also in great admiration of the music sheets you used as a base for the envelope. Wonderful job! I hope you can forgive my lateness in sending my gratitude to you!! -Matilda Cooper
Response: What fun it was to create, happy you liked it. Thank you for the Heart rating and all the kind words.

Steinway5 rated for Decorated Glassine Bags Swap on Nov 14, 2021
Comment: Thank you so much for such a cute little package!! I love love love the roses card, it reminds me of a painting I loved that was in my Great Grandma's house! The torn letter is so perfect, I love the wax seal and your handwriting is so pretty! (Matilda says she adores the poem - she loves the rhythm of the words, and she agrees with you that it is most haunting! She promises to take a moment to read the poem in it's entirety, you have intrigued her, so she must read more!) I did not even think to use gesso and stamping as a decorating technique! (Maybe because I don't have very many stamps??) I like the effect, I can imagine putting a dried floral sprig in it in my journal! The other glassine bag is so much fun!! I love that you chose the color blue and all the little pockets and tags are so so cute! The giant 3d sticker is so cool too. :) I'm not sure why but I SO LOVE the little fabric square.. maybe because the pattern is so cute.. Maybe because it's tiny.. maybe because it's padded.. anyway it reminds me of those little smooth worry stones you keep in your pocket. Wouldn't it be fun to send little fabric swatches like that to each other in our group? Thank you so much for such a cute and fun swap! ❀️❀️❀️
Response: You made my day, thank you for Heart rating and the lovely note.

Comment: Hi Pam, thank you for the beautiful wax seals. The blended crab is my favorite, There is always an element of surprise in sealing colors and images. I like that. Have a lovely holiday season!
