Comment: Thank you and I'm so sorry for the late rating I didn't want to just say that I got it. The Onyudu was a special surprise I hope not to be eaten by a giant I don't think it would be a good way to go especially if you saw him coming. I appreciate learning about the different Yokai and it's lore. Thank you.
Comment: Robyn, I LOVE this DAJ that you made!! I am so excited that you inspired it from The Shining!! That literally made my day so much!! I love everything about this DAJ that you made!! I also wanted to point out that the pockets on the inside were so creative! I love how you made the pockets clear on the side!! Everything about it truly is perfect. I love every single thing! Thank you so much for the wonderful DAJ and for the extras that you included as well!! I am super excited to have this be a part of my DAJ:) Thank you so much again! <3
Response: I'm so happy that you like it! It was hard to let it go LOL
Comment: Thank you for sharing so many cards! These are great, and have helped make progress on my Frankendecks! I appreciate you choosing cards based on my list. =) Thanks for going so above and beyond to make this such a special swap.
Comment: Oh my gosh, I am just overwhelmed by the beauty and thoughtfulness of this package! I love every bit of it, and there is so much! The jewelry is beautiful, and the necklace is going to be one of my favorites. The herbs are eerily perfect. The calcite skull alone took my breath away. And the letter explaining everything was so thoughtful. I just can’t thank you enough. You are why it’s worth staying on SB. Blessed be!
Comment: Oh my goodness, Robyn! You sent a whole suit! That was so generous <3 The playing cards are so fun and varied. I really adored the collection of MN cards you sent, I do not have any yet, so I was thrilled :D Thank you for such a thoughtful swap <3
Comment: The aliens have invaded! Thank you so much for the awesome ATC. I'm sorry you had to resend, but I really appreciate that you did and were proactive about checking on it. I love this!
UPDATE 9-9-22: Your first send just arrived. The envelope is ripped and it looks like it may have been caught up in the postal machinery, but everything appears to be inside. What an amazing swap! I'm so glad it made it, because your work doesn't deserve to be stuck under a machine in some sorting facility. I'm going to PM you, too, but wanted to update here. Thank you!!
Response: That makes me so happy, hearing that he made it there safely this time.
Comment: Aren't we all FREAKS in some way? Some of us wear it on the outside and some it's just under the surface. Love the ATC you made. And appreciate the papers they will go to good use. Thank you and Happy Swapping
Comment: I love both of these zines so much. Your art style makes me happy! ♥ And this Scary Things zine is very relatable. It's nice to meet someone else who has a fear of cows. They're very cute! But I'm allowed to have a healthy fear of them, haha! ♥ These extras are also SUPER cool, thank you so much!!
Comment: OMG Is this ever amazing, love, love, love. I am new to this and have 4 now and learning as I go. Iam excited to put these all together in booklet form. This one will be my cover!!! Thank you for your amazing work and swap.Hugs, Mona
Comment: WOW! I'm impressed. I used to have a skull collection, too, but they find other homes a lot. I love your bone casting kit. I would love to find the first 2 items, the waterchestnut seeds. Everything is very awesome! Thank you for sharing!
Response: Well, now that I know you are looking for them, I may have to keep an eye out for more Water Chestnut pods for you. They are fairly difficult to find in the USA.
Comment: Yours was so good and I loved everything. I know I can use it all in my art. Thanks for the magazine pages and the cute flea market finds. I love and fits in my trinkets glass jar beautifully. You are amazing!! Some much love in that package ❤️❤️❤️
Comment: Oh my goodness! What a wonderful swap! SO many goodies! Love the coaster. The oracle type cards are very good energy! Glad you got pineapples. I love collecting napkins. I work at a large grocery store, I buy lots of markdowns. I dont eat much meat, saves me some money. Drive to work is 30 minutes, lots of gas. I have fibromyalgia so I understand a bit.You sound like a precious soul, sharing your days with me. Thank you so much! Happy Swapping.
Comment: Two cards???!?! Thank you soooooo much, I'm so appreciative! And also thank you for the super cool card and of course setting up this swap in the first place! It's so cool to read about how you make yours, especially the interactive one! I also love the watercolor work on the "feeling lucky" card- I thought it was on actual leather at first! The stitching on the edges is incredible and gives such a polished effect- Is it real stitching or something else? Either way I love them both. Thank you again so so much!!!
Response: The stitching effect is from an ATC sized die I have to cut my papers with. Unfortunately the die cutting machine just broke last night, so I need to save up for a new one.
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun cards and postcards! What a nice note too! My parents both passed 5 years ago, 10 weeks apart, which is still hard to comprehend so I know that feeling of hoping she is looking over my shoulder at times. Thanks again!
Comment: First of all, I LOVE these ATCs. The Stand Out one reminds me of how I used to decorate my blog, and that snail is so fun! I love the idea of using the stamps as a border~ ♥ And It was so sweet of you to include such amazing extras! I love that you included some of the die cuts that you used on your Sender's Choice card (I'm excited to use them). And these postcards are super cool! (My partner says thank you for the skull, too. She stole it, haha.) Thank you so much for the amazing swap~
Comment: Wow Byn, this was such a wonderful surprise to open! Thank you so very much for all the treasures, I super adore them all! And your ATCs are so fun, I'm really excited to pass this bag on. Happy swapping!!
Comment: I just loved this swap! YOU ROCK!
I always try to look at the moon each evening but even if I don't, I keep up with her phases. I love the morning sun touching my toes. It sort of wakes me up and reminds me to smile. And of course I wish on everything too!
Comment: Thank you for designing a special Bible quote altered music ATC for me. I am enjoying the several extras you sent too, especially the variety of used postage stamps. And, there are some interesting cards in the Frankendeck. You are correct, the dark side of the other ATC is not my cup of tea. I kind of wish you had saved it for someone who could appreciate that type of art. I do like Victorian style steampunk. I'll add that to my profile.
Response: Please feel free to either pass along, scrap out, or simply toss the darker steampunk card! I'm very happy that you enjoyed the rest of the package.
Comment: Omg! I love both of these so much. All the effort of trial and error and you made something so adorable!!! Thank you for your letter. I love the explanation. I wanted to try embroidery for this swap but I wasn't even sure how to go about it. Your letter helps me! Love the purple flower AND the turtle. Thank you for the washi tapes too! So nice. :)
Comment: Hey Robyn! Thank you for the gorgeous bracelet! I wasn't expecting it so soon and had no idea what was in the envelope, so it was a really nice surprise. I love the pattern and colors. Also thank you for the matching ATC! and the sticker! Hope to swap again :)
Response: Thank you so much. That was the first friendship bracelet I made and I'm very happy you liked it.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap! I love the cute bee-themed wood slices… I know just where I’m going to hang them. My boys each get a dragon ATC and I get the kitty! I really love the poem you wrote for your mom. Beautiful.
Comment: Thank You very much Byn0604, both ofvyour ATCS are great! I like the great colors and expressive lines. I also appreciate your cat doodle and the pretty orange frame you drew around my address on the envelope. Very fun to see in my mailbox.
Happiness abd Peace to you
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and the heart. I'm very happy you liked it.
Comment: WOW, that is one of the coolest swaps I've ever received. I'm in love with the book you made for me. It fits perfectly in my B6 Travelers Notebook. It's perfect to keep all the magical bits that I want to add to my journaling. I've already used many of the bits in my journals already. The beads and little dragon are already being used. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so happy that you liked it! I was worried that since it was my first one it would be poorly received. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
