This luscious bundle of ribbons, still on my desk because they are too pretty to use, is from Becky
All of my Faery Swap books have been mailed! (well, except two late people who missed out, but I am trading with them one on one)
I want to thank everyone who left a comment about the person complaining about the page she hated and threw away. Thoughtful, heart felt comments came from the crafty world of swappers, and lots of private emails filled with caring came too.
The one thing I want to clarify is that the page that she complained about was NICE. Really nice. Quality materials, done well. I didn't mean for anyone out there to be feeling bad or having second thoughts about their own work!!
This shouldn't cast a shadow over this amazing swap, the work that came in was top notch, filled with creativity. I was so impressed.
The only reason I brought up the whole issue, is that I was hoping she would read the comments you left and be too embarrassed to bring up the subject on her blog or Facebook. If she hurt the feelings of the person who made that page, it would break my heart.
And now I need to apologize to all of you, whose feelings I hurt by making you wonder if your page was the one in the trash. I should have kept the complaint to myself, but she was so ANGRY that I wanted to do what I could to make sure she didn't speak out publicly about this and name names!!!
Thank you all once again for being supportive. There is a wonderful arty community out there and I'm honored to be a part of it!
