  8. I wanted to let everyone know what a fantastic job our hosts do for us. As some of you may know my Blue Valentines never showed up in Joanne's mailbox :( So I was a little disappointed, but understand that these things happen...anyway unknown to me, our wonderful host made up another set of Valentines to send out in place of the ones MIA and I was the recipient of a lovely bunch of unexpected Happy Mail Valentines today! How wonderful is that! Joanne you have a generous, kind heart. Thank you so very much for all your work to make this another great swap. Trudy Headley

  11. Thank you, Laima, for the beautiful blue and black rooster post card with the black herringbone washi tape. You mentioned you were sending it from the frozen tundra of the north. Well, it was received in the OTHER frozen tundra of the north....Maine, where we are currently getting hit by a nor'easter! Happy New Year to you, too.

  13. G. Ellison, tonight I received an absolutely gorgeous Year of the Rooster card from you--adore the ingenious chicken wire overlay. Sublime and sincerely stunning!! Thank you so very much. And to Laima, your beautiful work made me smile; love the sunburst pattern and fun layers. The address side was delightful too; thanks for writing a message (enviable penmanship i might add) as that's always really appreciated. And WAY TO GO, Christie, for your seamless hosting. I may be counting my chicks before they hatch, but hope you'll do this again in 2018 for Year of the Dog.

  39. Thanks to all of you who participated in my Sticker Mania swap! What a great variety of stickers and crazy designs you all submitted! And thanks to Sarah C. for your super cute party-themed sticker card with all the cakes and cookies and other treats on it! I kept that one for myself and am so glad I did! (That's one of the advantages of being a host - you get to choose four of your favorite cards from ALL the cards that were submitted-provided you created four cards for exchanging, too)! I highly recommend hosting a swap! Contact Honi C. if you're interested!

  40. PLASTIC SLEEVE NOTE: Hi swappers, Just to let you know, post cards send out sealed in plastic sleeves require Non-Machineable 70-cents postage. Honi

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I received one of my informal swap mailings back today, two weeks after I mailed it, needing nonmachinable postage for "being ENCLOSED IN PLASTIC." (The post office specified that reason for nondelivery.)

      Note that "the plastic" was a piece of postal tape that I used to cover the address labels. Nothing else. The rest of the envelope was scrapbook paper.

      When I presented it to my postal clerk, asking about "the plastic" issue, he thought it was an error at the sorting facility. "Tape over address labels," he thought, should not require extra postage, as a rule, but we'll see if the letter is returned back to me a second time. Trying it again, as per the clerk's suggestion, without the extra stamp.

    2. Actually Honi, I made an envelope for you where I covered SOME but not all of the envelope with clear packing tape. I was told it would cost $2.67 to mail "because it was too slippery" for the sorter. So I went back upstairs and got an envelope from work and mailed it all for $0.49. Boring envelope though.

  45. Hello! Just wanted to pop in and say THANKS to several people who have sent me postcards and other things since I put my name on the informal swap 2017 in January. (Honi, Dee Rodrigues, Josh Kemp, Sudyka, Denise Woodward). On January 4th I went to the hospital and was there for almost 6 weeks. I am slowly recovering and have just started back on my artwork, so you will be getting something from me soon. Take care, and Happy Spring to all!

  57. Thank you, Jan H., for the lovely Repetition and Variation postcard made with your hand-carved stamp that reminded me of slices of citrus fruit. The muted paint colors are the same colors as the three colors in my studio, only mine are extremely bright lemon yellow, lime green, and orange orange. I almost need sunglasses to play with my art supplies! Keep making awesome art! Warmly, Cheryl
