Comment: Thanks for the card. I've colored my part and sent it on its way home. The colorful handmade envelope and fun stamps you used on your envelope brightened my day. Thank you! I hope you had a delightful time in Tenerife.
Comment: Jess, will send Christy and Christina's postcards off in the next round. I would have loved to be there for the Robin Hood Festival. You are very pretty and I love your dog. Is he a Brittany Spaniel? Shirley
Response: Hi Shirley! I’m so glad everything reached you okay! Thank you so much, and my dog is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard! Your stamps are out of this world!!! I couldn't believe how beautiful they are, thank you so much :) Also, I am very jealous you had the opportunity to see a shuttle bast off, that must have been SO cool!
Response: You’re welcome! I. Happy it reached you okay! It was very cool to see the shuttle go up! Once in a lifetime experience!
Comment: Wow! Thank you for the beautiful handmade card and note! Absolutely lovely! Thank you for the book recommendations! I love mysteries as well, but read lots of other stuff as well. I'll add those to my list. Oh, and I LOVE all the stamps!
Response: You’re very welcome! I’m glad you liked the card, I’ve held onto it for ages to find someone to send it to! Those books really had me gripped, I hope you enjoy them if you get around to reading them :)
Comment: Thanks for the beautifull postcard of London you send together with the collaboration card. I've allready added my part and send it through to the next one. And now I realised I forgot to rate you earlier.
Response: You’re welcome! I’m happy you enjoyed the postcard I chose! Don’t worry about it at all, we all forget sometimes! :)
Comment: Hi Jess! Thank you SO SO much for the postcard! I love the stamps and the cute owls <3 I'd give you more hearts if I could. I saw that you like penpals. Let me know if you'd want one from Switzerland :) All the Love, Maddy
Response: No problem at all, I’m glad you loved it! I thought the owls would suit you perfectly! I’m always happy to find new penpsls so that would be awesome! I’ll send you a message!
Comment: Thanks for the post card. I know Nottingham a bit as I worked in Leicester many years ago. I have seen a few members of the royal family as they have passed by on the road, by accident i must add. As much as I admire some of them i couldn't be bothered to stand around on a pavement for hours!
Response: You’re welcome! How cool that you were so close! I’ve not actually been to Leicester much myself despite it being so close!
Comment: It looks like the glue you used wasn't completely dry or somehow it got sticky during transit, but the card was stuck to the envelope and some bits of paper tore off onto the card. It's not terrible but just wanted to give you a heads up for future reference. I look forward to contributing to this one!
Response: Oh no! So sorry about that, sure it was dry when I packaged it up but sometimes accidents do happen in the mail process! Hope you had fun adding to it!
Comment: Hi! tysm! I love the pc you sent! I'm so jelly you have actually seen Prince William. What was the occasion? I have a dear friend who lives in Peterlee. Are you close to there?
Response: You’re very welcome! We were in Buckingham palace for an awards ceremony and Prince Charles was giving out the awards! It was so fun! Peterlee is about 2 hours away from me, I don’t think I’ve ever been there!
Comment: Hi Jess,
Thank you so much for the lovely package you've send me. I love everything in it. The mug topper is so adorable <3 Also a big thanks for all the teabags and the lovely postcard. Best wishes! <3
Comment: Omg omg omg. This swap was truly wonderful and super filled to the top. I never seen so much treats unless from a store. I never seen it/try 14 out of 26 of them. The post card is super nice also. I always wanted to try a sherbet fountain, poppers, lion bar, love hearts, yorkie, vinto bar, and others and now I can.
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for the enormous selection of chocolates! I had to double check the swap description because I couldn't believe my eyes and luck! I have tried some of the chocolates while traveling but there were new acquaintances as well. I enjoyed all of them and my favourites were Aero peppermint and Maltesers! Thank you so much again! I would give you ten hearts if I could! :)
Comment: Thank you for the PCs! They arrived quite fast! I will actually see Trafalgar Square again tomorrow, I study in a MSc programme at the University of Essex, I am doing my dissertation and I fly to England tomorrow for a week :D
Response: I hope you enjoyed Trafalgar Square on your trip! What a fun coincidence! :)
Comment: Hi Jess and thank you for your letter! I hope you get to Venice and to St.Petersburg, they are lovely cities. Congratulations on your new job, you will be fine! And I do hope you will get your ice cream van, I will come over an buy an ice from you. Happy swapping!
Response: Thank you! The job is going well so far and I can’t wait to tick those places off my bucket list! You’re welcome to buy an ice cream from me anytime haha 🍦
Comment: Receipt the group of pieces today, will continue them on their journey. Thank you also for your PC, I love the fact that you put a picture of yourself and your puppy on the back and your wax stamp itâ€™s pretty cool.
Response: I’m glad they reached you okay, have fun sending them on! Wax stamps are my new favourite hobby, each one is so individual :)
Comment: Beautiful card, wonderful stamps, and what sounds like a great book! I have always wanted to visit Scotland and Ireland, as I have ancestors from both countries, so appreciate the PC very much. I will also have to look into the book -- sounds like something I would also enjoy. Thanks, and happy swapping!
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed the cards and the stamps, the book was very good in the end, I couldn’t put it down!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely postcard and England goodies!! Your wax seal looks lovely and made it through the mail just about perfectly! I was near Nottinghamshire last September when I went to see Newstead Abbey. Such a lovely place!
Response: That’s such a funny coincidence, Newstead Abbry isn’t too far from where I live, but there are lots of cool things to see in Nottinghamshire! I’m glad you liked everything and the wax stamp made it to you safely!
Comment: First I have to ask, did you get the job? What a neat set of history to have a for your hometown, ours is not that exciting at all. Don't you just love the cat postcard that we were are forwarding on ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚. Thank you very much for sending it forward and your postcard, I will send them on their way as well when the time comes.
Response: Sorry for the late response but I did get a new job in the end! Things have been crazy busy as you can imagine but I’m enjoying it so much :) I’m glad the cards reached you well!
Comment: You really surprised me, I loved everything you sent me, the teabags, the postcards, the London magnet, the coin and the bus pin. And I almost went crazy with the Sherwood Forest magnet (which arrived in perfect condition), I loved it, I love Robin Hood! I'm happy, thank you very much!
Comment: Wow that's so cool that you found a message :) I'm going to check that website out to see if anyone has found mine :) Thanks for all the goodies. I was pretty excited about the pins because my mom collects them and Mothers Day is coming up so I'll include them with her gift. I think she'll really like them.
Comment: Thanks so much for the thoughtful bundle! The letter is awesome and I will write back soon :) I also really appreciate that you sent different cards to me than the ones I just sent to you! Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you very much Jess for the awesome ship pc and the train stamp! Thank you also for telling me a little about where you live and where the ship goes! It was great being your swap receiver! :)
Response: You’re very welcome! I’m glad it reached you and you enjoyed it!
Comment: Hello received the collaboration postcard today .....what fun..... too bad it won't get back home before Halloween but it will still be fall.....love your pumpkins....not sure yet what I will add but will and will send it on soon..... Love the card with the Puffins too thanks....great swap......
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I had so much fun with this one, I love Halloween! :) I hope you have fun adding your bits!
Comment: Thanks for the cool PC and stamps ðŸ˜‹ I went to England and Scotland for a couple weeks back in 1999 when I was only 18. I had a great time visiting all the castles and museums and just wandering around some of the small towns of Scotland. I loved it up there and I could drink as much scotch as I could afford. ðŸ˜œ I would definitely love to go back sometime and check out more places. Glad you had a good time this summer and happy birthday ðŸŽˆ Warm wishes, Nathan
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you had such a good time on your visit to the UK, there are so many great things to see, even the places that most tourists don't know about! Thank you for the birthday wishes, I hope your summer was as fun as mine! Best wishes, Jess x
Comment: Hi Jess, WOW...thank you so much! I am speechless, what a wonderful random item! ...I am just back from Sheffield and the thing I miss mostly: tea time with scones & co!...lol...you could read my mind! ...THANK YOU! Have a great day! Smiles, Joana
Response: I'm glad i made the right choice! (and that it arrived in one piece) I hope you enjoy lots of cups of tea, and a few scones of course! :) You're welcome!
Comment: Ha...good story about the post card...it has been places I have not been. We kids used to watch Robin Hood all the time on TV...funny...I always thought of him as the good guy, not an outlaw! thank you
Response: Heehee, it's certainly traveled a long wt to get to you! :) I think Robin Hood is the good guy too, but he is known for beign an outlaw and breaking the rules ;) Your're welcome!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely little package! Such a wonderful surprise, and I look forward to colouring the last part of this card and drinking the tea :) It seems we have some awesome things in common! If you're interested in more penpals, let me know :) I'd be happy to keep in touch!
Response: You're welcome! And I hope you enjoy the teas! :) it would be lovely if we could keep in touch, I will pm you my address and look forward to your mail!
Comment: It's finally here!! thank you so much for the lovely postcard and for the concern while waiting for the raiting! I hope you don't mind if I write back another day? let me know if you would like that!
Response: I'm glad it finally arrived and i'm glad you liked it! :) It would be great if you wrote back, i'm looking forward to it already! I will PM you my address :) Happy swapping
Comment: Thanks for the swan to add to my collection! I love the birdie stamp too! I will have to look up that book as it sounds like one I would like. Wow, you have a huge cross-stitch project going! One of my favorite artists, Geninne, does pyrography on leather and makes wristbands and bags with it. I have done it on wood too and it is fun. You can get so much detail and shading with that tool! Happy crafting! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You're welcome :) I'm glad you liked the swan card! It was a very exciting book, especially the ending, and it was totally unexpected! I have had a look at that artist, and wow she is impressive - I'm not that good! But i enjoy playing around with it. Happy swapping, Jess
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful blue postcard. Blue is one of my favourite colours, although I have to admit that I like colours in general. It's also great to get a postcard with a long message on it. It made my (rainy) day.
Response: Oh I'm so happy you liked it! :) I always fill my postcards with a long message, as I hope other people would do too - I think it's a waste of a postcard if they are not full!
Comment: I REALLY REALLY REALLY loved your swap , I think it has been one of my favorites so far, so I think the only way of thanking as you deserve is sending something back . Please send me a direct message with your new address, because I do not know if the one on the envelope is your current address :D.
Response: You are very welcome :) I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I had fun picking out the bits and putting it together too :) It would be so sweet of you to send something back, i will send you a message and let you know my address!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fantastic map card new to my collection :)) The stamps and stickers are wonderful too! I used to have a penpal from Nottingham, so I know that Robin Hood is a famous legend over there :D I used to do cross stitch when I was a teenager but almost got no time to do that now >.< A HP cross stitch sounds awesome! Enjoy and best wishes to you~
Response: You're welcome :) I'm glad you like it! It's a pretty awesome legend to live near, they hold a Robin Hood festival near here every summer which brings in tourists from all over the world!
Comment: Dear Jess, thank you for the charming mallard/ducks card, cheery washi and heart sticker, gorgeous stamps (I love the vibrant colours of the carousel horses and the history of the Winton and Caernarton Castle ones :D), and your message! I have been thinking about Matilda a lot recently -- it's one of my favorite novels and films from childhood, and I recently had to write about the musical, although I haven't seen it yet :) When I read the line, I had "Naughty" stuck in my head all over again, heheh. I know the West End production came first, but the other day was the third anniversary of the Broadway production. I would love to see it on tour or in New York soon. Hope you have a great weekend! x Avi
Response: Hi Avi! You're welcome, i'm so glad you liked it all! I love picking random stamps to send! Usually we just have quite boring ones that only show the queen's head on different colour backgrounds, but i managed to find some mroe exciting ones! Aaah i'm glad i could get a song stuck in your head! haha! It is really an amazing production and all the children are so talented! :Best wishes, Jess :)
Comment: Thanks a bunch. I like all the postcards you sent for my word. I was hesitant coming into this swap as well. My partner had a word with the letter J in it and the was really hard but I finally found a vintage postcard in my collection that had an image of Jerry Lewis Stadium. Ha ha. Thanks again. Have a great night.
Response: You're welcome :) I'm glad you liked them all, and i'm glad you managed to find awesome ones to send too (Heehee, we need to have more faith in ourselves!) Best wishes!
Comment: Thank you so much for this amazing swap! I loved the mug so much-- I was expecting something silly that I would get a laugh out of and then not use particularly, but this was even better, it was funny, and delightful, and useful (I own about two mugs so this is honestly so useful) and I love sea creatures!
(Also sorry for the late rate, I haven't been home for a few weeks so had to wait for a few swaps)
Response: I'm so glad you like it!!! :) When i saw it i thought it was perfect for this slightly crazy swap, but i was so worried it wouldn't make it to you in one piece! I hope it makes you smile whenever you use it! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the the cute critters, I love owls! But all the critters you make are so adorable :) I can't wait to hear what you think about the fat quarters i sent you :) It may have to go through customs.
Response: Yay! I'm glad they reached you okay Sherry, and that you liked them! :) I can't wait to see my fat quarters! I'm so excited!
Comment: Thank you Jess, Your (Pink) Box of Sunshine did make me Smile :) I LOVE the lil PINK PIGGY! The rose is beautiful I put it on the top of my favorite writing pen. Everything else is perfect :) Thank you & Happy Swapping!
Response: Yay! Your welcome Sherry! I glad it reached you okay, and that you loved everything! Who would have thought it was so difficult finding so many pink things! Happy swapping :)
Comment: Thank you for the bag. I rated 5 as it met swap requirements but was disappointed you sent what I asked not to recieve as I have a cupboard full of them. I too can't get out but ordered mine on ebay for my partner.
Response: Sorry it wasn't what you asked for, I thought the idea was to send a reusable bag from a shop local to your area or country, rather than buy one online. I suppose it would have worked better to send to/receive from a different country, but I hope you can still make use of it ðŸ™‚
