Comment: What an absolutely lovely package! My boyfriend and I went through it all and we are SO excited to try everything! Thank you for picking out some of your favorites, and thank you for how beautifully you packed everything. Cheers!
Comment: I love your package and your letter! :-) We also have those chocolate sticks and i also had them in my childhood. :-) With the bubblegum ones you could actually smoke because you could blow the powder out. It only worked one time. :-D
I love everything you sent but my highlight is the cinnamon stick as that is completely new to me.
Thank you for all the yummy treats and the pretty box! :-)
Comment: Super cute card! Thank you so much for sending it my way. My brother & I both had covid over Christmas so my family is going to have a holiday re-do in a couple weeks. :) I hope your new year is off to a great start!
Comment: Colinde, I exclaimed out loud when I saw the postcard with the view of the field and waterway. That view is so peaceful to me. It’s obvious that the envelope had a treacherous journey. It was battered and a slit ran through the address. And I love it! It adds to the charm and shows that it had an adventurous trek. Sending smiles your way!
Comment: Dank je wel voor je super leuke doosje vol verassingen en je lieve woorden over het origaniseren van swaps.
Dat doe ik met heel veel plezier.
Zo heerlijk om weer leuke stuffers te verzamelen.
Leuk dat je mee deed in deze swap ☺♥
Comment: Dixi is beautiful! Thank you for sharing her with me. My cat Sugar would also let you know her moods with her teeth and claws. We lost her on Jan. 29 but I still have a scar to remember her by. When she said "Don't mess with me" she meant it. LOL! Have a great day!
Comment: Thanks for sharing info and photos of your cat. She's such a cutie! One of my cats is a thief too, as soon as I have something to eat... she's there trying to take it :) Pet Dixi from me and my fur babies! <3
Comment: Aww I loved reading about madam Dixie
It’s funny how jealous our fur babies are and feathered babies 👶
Thanks again for joining us in the group swap hope to see you and Dixie in more swaps
Take care stay safe
Comment: Prachtige boom in het rood. En dat gingerbread poppetje heb ik ook!
Das toch wel echt kerst ♥
Dank je voor het opnieuw sturen
Response: Hai! Oh wat balen, want ik heb hem wel degelijk gestuurd :-o En ik had ook geen 'onbestelbaar retour' mail gehad dus het mailadres klopte wel :( Wat lief dat je toch een 5 rating geeft <3 Verder gaat het z'n gangetje wel; toevallig afgelopen weekend mijn boom opgeruimd haha. Ik ga nog een keer een poging doen om je de mail te versturen :) Lieve groetjes
Comment: Hi Colinde! Thank you so much for your nice envie.💌 I do really love it, in particular how you have wrapped all the chocolate goodies 🍫❤️🎁 I put all the small presents on our xmas table as decoration and it was really nice to open them on Xmas Day!! My husband love the chocolate marshmallow ginger cookie lollipop. And I like the Kit Kat Santa Klaus 🎅🍫. You make us both extremely happy 🥰
Response: You are sooooo welcome :-D Glad I made you happy! Best wishes and all the best for 2021!! <3
Comment: Got your swap, but only got one , i received it ripped from the bottom. Not ur fault tho, it’s prolly due to the transport. Thank you for the gift!
Response: Oh nooo I'm so sorry to hear that :( I thought I wrapped it carefully... Glad you liked the gift you got... I am currently very busy with work (finding a new job) but I will make a note that I send you a small gift next weekend to make it up! xox
Comment: Dear Colinde, thank you so much for your lovely advents gifts. I love what you chose for me and they brought some extra joy to my advent season <3 I'm also so happy that I sent you a perfect gift in the other swap :-) I wish you a happy New Year and stay safe and healthy. I also wish you to find another job you like soon <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the gifts, they arrived yesterday so I have opened them. I love the notebook it's gorgeous, thank you so much. The stickers are fab. It made my day. Thank you and have a lovely Christmas. 😀 🎄
Comment: Blijkbaar is mijn eerdere rating niet opgeslagen ☹️.
Dank je wel voor de leuk ingepakte cadeautjes, ik kan niet wachten om ze te mogen openen.
Wat leuk dat je een keer vastenavond hebt gevierd. Dat zal een hele happening geweest zijn, ik heb er in het begin heel erg aan moeten wennen hoor.
Comment: Hey again!! Thank you for another fab swap. I've put them with the others and I'm looking forward to opening them. Btw I love the postcards you sent your notes on. Early Christmas wishes and hugs🥰🥰
Comment: Hello :-) , thank you so much for the really nice Surprises. I really like how you wrapped the gifts and the little Letter. Thank you also for the surprise for my Son :-) . Many Greetings from Italy :-) ! and Merry Christmas to you too :-) !!!
Response: Thank you so much for the nice rating and comment; I am so happy you liked the package! There is another package on its way to you since you are my partner in another swap as well :-D Hopefully it will also find you with a big smile ;-) Warm wishes to wonderful Italy ;-)
Comment: Wow Colinde. So, I've done about 100 postcard and flat mail swaps, but this was the first "Type 3" I've ever done. I wanted to wait so I could make something special for someone. You absolutely made my day with everything you prepared for me!! The Berlin Wall piece, notebook and pen are very cool, but I think my favorite is the rainbow bag. I teared up when I saw it. Thank you so much for brightening my day with your sweet gifts. I have a cold this Friday, so I'm going to make some of that soup and enjoy. Wish you all the best and many thanks from Korea!!
Response: Thank you só much for your kind comment, and your rating with the heart! <3 I'm so glad you liked all the gifts! In all honesty, I KNEW you would love that bag :-D I bought it in the shop where I work, and literally everybody loves it a lot! Little note on it: If you put it in the washing machine, the colors can faint a bit. But hey, if that ever will happen: message me and I will make sure you get another one since this bag is fixed product in our store :-D I hope you feel better, and that maybe the soup even helped you get better a bit :-D Warm wishes to you and maybe we meet again in another swap!
Comment: Ah! Paris! We've been there twice & loved it as well. The last time, we were on the Eiffel Tower & got stuck in a wild rainstorm! My husband got soaked & almost blown off the tower, but the kids & I darted into a store & kept dry until the rains quit. What a story!
Comment: Thanks so much Colinde for your kind words. I loved reading what you wrote for me. Yeah, the pain will always be there but life has to go on. I am alone in the house now but my cats keep me company! I am surviving!! Thanks so much for the lovely assortment of notecards. Not sure if I wanna use any of them....they are so precious!!! Again, thanks again for your mail made my day! Hugs from Malaysia!
Response: Cats are lovely company <3 You're very welcome! And I'm glad you liked the cards. (sorry for the late respond!) I appreciate your nice rating! Hugs! <3
Comment: Hi Colinde! TY for the lovely pc - I want to go too! Looks like a great place to visit and there is so much to do! I hope you get to go again when all the stuff you wanted to see is open and that you have a wonderful time! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thank you so much for the sunshine you sent me Colinde...I loved it. So did my daughter, she stole the French Vanilla cuppocino! Also love your creative envelope, especially sewing it together! Again, thank you!!! ðŸ˜Šâ™¥ï¸â™¥ï¸
Comment: Thank you so much for your ray of sunshine. I live together with my aunt so this morning when I went downstairs to collect the mail from the doormat your letter stood out between all the boring white envelopes, and already made me smile from afar.
It only got better when I opened it. It made me smile and tear up (I'm a crier), and was just all together lovely.
I love everything You sent me and I will treasure and use all of it!
Thank you so much! You truly captured the essence of this swap!
Response: Ahww, thank you sÃ³ much for your sweet rating and the heart!! I'm so happy to read that my mail found you with such great appreciation! :) I'm also a crier, but I believe showing emotions make people so beautiful and pure! :) Thanks to you for creating this nice swap! I had much fun preparing the envelopes!
Comment: Dankjewel voor het hele leuke pakketje met thee! Alle thee die je mij gestuurd heb ziet er lekker uit, en ja, ook de jasmijnthee kan ik erg waarderen.
Vandaag weer heerlijk genoten van het zonnetje? Ik hier in ieder geval wel.
Veel plezier nog op swap-bot en wie weet tot ziens. Groetjes Henny

Comment: Ik ben een paar dagen niet thuis geweest, vandaar dat ik je pakje dit weekend pas heb gezien. Dank je wel voor de vele theetjes. De aardbeien zijn inmiddels bij mijn moeder. Ze moest er om lachen :-) Toch ook nog best veel nieuwe theetjes voor mij, dus ook weer nieuwe theelabels voor mijn collectie :-)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome drunk letter! I didn't read mine the next day either. I hope your 2014 is a lot better than 2013! Best wishes!

Response: I'm so glad to hear that!! you're very very welcome :D Have a nice december :) thanks for the heart!!
Comment: hello! :) Thank you for the beautiful postcard! The view is spectacular! I haven't been to the Netherlands before but my brother spent a few years there :) I hope to get to visit there one day
Comment: I had to laugh at this card. It looked so like me in the 60's and 70's. Used to dress that way and the figure was just perfect. Today a very different look. Oh well, we all have to get old, but why??? Giggles, Shirley
Comment: Thank you Colinde! I'm looking forward to listening to these. It seems there are a lot of songs on the list that I haven't heard so I'm eager to find out what they're like. I like Korn and you've also mentioned Rammstein in your profile so I guess I'm going to like your playlist :-)
Comment: envelope and contents did not meet swap requirements. this should be a 3 bu at your very long detailed pm request i am changing your rating as i am annoyed reading the arguments.
i did not say that all was supposed o be profile specific but here is what the swap did say :
Please send a long business size envelope that measures approxmiately 4x9 inches but you may chose to go bigger if you like.
-There is no minimum or maximum number of items to send, but make sure your envelope is stuffed full of items.
-Must inlcude 2 profile based items in the package. (make sure you are not sending her/him any items they don't like when chosing profile-based items)
YOUR PACKAGE was much smaller than 4x9 and there were things I was allergic to and things on my dislike list
and folded up letter paper....
your response wants to know why you only have 5s... probably because you write to ppl until they give them to you.
Response: :-S You leave me almost speechless here... I can give you many refferences if you like. I've NEVER wrote people, except you, just because I felt I had reasons for that... Sorry if I was wrong on that. And about the swap: People make mistakes, sometimes. SORRY, again. Anyway... thank you, I guess. :-S
Comment: Hallo Colinde, bedankt voor de leuke spullen die ik heb ontvangen. En wat gaaf die magneet van Portugal, Portugal is echt het land waar ik ooit eens heen wil, die bovenaan op mijn lijstje staat dus om deze magneet te krijgen maakte mij dag al helemaal goed! Ook de andere dingen waren erg leuk. Ik wist niet eens dat er ook Jetoy schrijfpapier bestond, wel erg mooi. En de cupcake tea ga ik zeker snel uitproberen. Bedankt voor de leuke dingen die je me hebt gestuurd. Liefs, Tamara
