Not getting comments does NOT mean that your craft wasn't any good!!  Plenty of good crafts never get noticed and sometimes awful ones do.  It's just the nature of the site, really.  Don't get discouraged!

I agree. I post a lot of things that take me a long time and that I think are really, really good but hardly anyone comments on them. it's just the luck of the draw, really. and sometimes the threads that get popular get that way because of some weird, off-topic tangent...

the "home at last" card.. does it say something in the trees? it looks like there's writing there but I can't tell.

Yes, sorry... I missed typing the words "I felt".

I think that's part of the reason for the whole, "I guess no one likes it" bumps.  I have yet to get a lot of comments on something I post, but I also tend to post in the morning (U.S.), and with the volume of posts here, I imagine it gets buried by the time most people would be looking. At least, that's what I tell myself.   Undecided 

It's easier to believe when you occasionally find really awesome stuff with no comments from 2 years ago.

I got five more this week:


"Earwigs scare me!"


"I want to be her. She's perfect"
This card was really dark and hard to read in real life, so it's not the picture.


Front: "I am tired of all my secres. Dont tell! Shhhhh!"
Back: "Maybe it's time to let them go?"


Front: "Maybe if you had listened to what we were telling you, you could have helped me but instead you just wrote me off as stupid. Thanks ___ [illegible]___! IQ score: 122!"
Back: "A note on the IQ score. This is from a KAT test. I didn't make it up. And that's the good _____[illegible]_____ too!"


Front: "Our house has a dirt basement so in the summer we have a big bug problem"
Back: "It really bothers my Mum when she visits, but I think its the little pests keeping the big pests at bay"

I have a question about feedback. This is my first swap and I'm assuming there is no feedback until the very end, but what if some of your secrets never get posted or if you never receive all the secrets you're supposed to get? I was not able to take pictures of my secrets before I sent them off so I can't post the missing ones.

you will get feedback as long as most of your secrets have been received. It is only a problem if little to none of your secrets get received. Your lost/unposted secrets just won't get to be posted if you didn't take pictures. Sad

Unfortunately, I won't be able to receive any more secrets until next Monday. I'm on spring break, so I'm home now. I only need to receive two more before I've received all 19 though, so I think I've been doing pretty good!

I didn't take pictures of mine either, sometimes when I'm at home my dad likes to use my computer because it's faster/better. I didn't want to risk him finding my secrets. But I counted, and I think 17 have been received so far.  Smiley
