Comment: Oh I love muffeletta sandwiches, if you ever get the chance to have one, TAKE IT. I've never made one but we used to have a place a few cities away that made huge ones and they were SO good. I had a tear in my eyes when I learned they had closed down. Can't wait to try making my own now.

Response: You are welcome! Thanks for joining the swaps I do.
Comment: I hope the snow stops for you soon too! I always have a difficult time getting patients in with the weather :( it is easier as we provide transportation for them (for some) but still a difficult thing i am sure. Ice makes me weary due to the amount of injuries ugh! I need warm weather too lol! Someday!
Comment: Hi Cole! Thanks for the great pc - how awesome that your daughter can get free tickets to fun stuff! I visited Chattanooga a few years ago and went to Rock City - very cool! It was a nice town as well and I would like to go back at some point! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Denver card!! I've been there many times and I highly recommend visiting if you ever get the chance! Hopefully it will warm up for you down there, we must have switched weather or something because it has been unseasonably warm here!
Response: You are welcome! I hope to get there sometime, my Ma's fave football team was Broncos. I will take your warm weather, we are digging out of ice and snow here. I do not like it.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card selection and all the extras! We were just in Memphis yesterday, and I couldn't help noticing how many of the cards were from there. Do you go over very often? We will be back Friday to see Santa at Bass Pro and to get our tree at the Merry Christmas Tree Farm
Response: Glad you liked them. I train in Memphis for my job so when I walk around for lunch I find places with PCs. Small world, If you are going to the Bass pro in the pyramid, I train at the welcome center you drive by to get there. We train Monday thru Thursday. Except this Thursday since its Thanksgiving.Have fun in Memphis.
Comment: Hi Cole! Thank you for the very pretty Autumn Blessings pc! So glad you are enjoying your new job - sounds interesting! We are up in the 70's today - not sure what is going on with that, but I will take it! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: 70s here to, this weather is something else! Thanks for the great rateðŸ˜
Comment: Hi Cole! Waterloo is about six hours from Rockford (Chicago) - we live near the IL/MO border and St. Louis, MO is about 20 minutes away! It has gotten hot and humid here as well - temps near 100 all week - yikes! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Neat! You can go visit MO. Hope it gets cooler for both of us! Thanks!
Comment: ACK! I think I am one of your late raters... How did I let it slip by? Gold and purple, so pretty! We've had lots of rain. Mid May when Gene asked "Alexa" for the weather, she said "Thunderstorm warnings until June 9th"!
Response: Never late, suppose to rain here today. Thanks for the rate!
Comment: Cole, thank you for the fascinating postcard of the Outer Banks. I thought for sure that all along the coastal area it would be beach sand and not lush vegetation. Interesting. This calls for a day trip. Shirley
Response: Hope you enjoy your day trip! thanks for the rate!
Comment: Good golly! how did I not rate you sooner??? The bacon chicken sandwich sounds yum and the spaghetti w/sirloin stips instead of ground meat? Why did I not think of that? Gene will be a happy camper! :~)
Response: Lol, its fine, we did the chicken the other weekend, it wasnt to bad. Thanks for the rate!
Comment: Hi Cole! Thank you for the very pretty Arkansas pc! We were thankful when it stopped raining as well and boy, did the sun look great! I am not looking forward to 90's - no pleasing me! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: We haven't gotten much rain. I hear we are in a drought. Saw smoke yesterday coming from the woods...not sure if it was one of those drought fires or not. May flowers would be nice though. Thank you for the card!
Response: So sorry on the drought, hope it gets better and no fire! Thanks for the rate!!
Comment: What a beautiful and very unique PC you chose for this swap --- it must be fabulous to see in person and the history/meaning behind it is so very important. Thank you so much - I did not know this existed and it is always so interesting to learn something new especially something of this magnitude in our history. Again, thanks so much for sharing ~
Response: So glad you liked it, one piece of art I found so very unusual. Thank you for the rate:)
Comment: That is pretty cool, but I have never been to or even heard of Havana, Florida. I don't know if welcome stations still exist, but I know you don't get free orange juice at the rest stops, ha! Great postcard!
Response: Glad you liked it. Yep it was neat then. Thanks for the rate!
Comment: Thanks for the great PC of the cotton plants. When I was a kid we were stationed in the south and I remember stopping alongside the road and getting a cotton 'ball' that had fallen from a huge field of plants -- I had that thing for years and years and was always fascinated with the idea of just growing cotton. . .remember I was just a kid :-) I hadn't thought of that cotton 'ball' for years - thanks for sending a PC that brought back great memories for me. Have a wonderful weekend ~
Response: So glad it brought back good memories. Hope your weekend is great to:) thanks for the rate.
Comment: The card finally made it! :) Thanks for the great communication about the mishap and resend - whew! now we can uncross all the fingers and toes :) We were at the Petrified Forest National Park last year - we were the only vehicle on the road most way through - which came in handy for the snake that was crossing the road...we stopped and watched it work it's way across :) We took pictures of it from the safety of the RV haha!
Response: So glad it made it! You may still get the other one. Sounds like your trip was good, snake and all. I have never been there. Thanks for the great rate and have a awesome weekend.
Comment: Hi Colleen! What a cute cat pc! No the cat doesn't look happy but it sure made me giggle! Is it warm enough there to mow? We have been having spring like weather and now the bottom has dropped out - on 34 as I type and we could get ice/snow tonight and tomorrow - boo hiss!

Comment: Got this one today :) LOVE it! one of our cats is just like this!! We have one that is all snuggly and loves being held, and one that just doens't like to be held or petted unless he's in the mood, but the girl, she is just like this cat on the card hahah! She tries to resist the bite, but just has to :) Cat's are awesome though, just like little kids haha! Thank you for the great card :)
Response: Cats are fun! I love mine even when their driving me crazy!

Response: So glad you liked it and it got there quick! I must admit ladybugs kinda freak me out. Lol
Comment: Hi Colleen! What a wonderful pc - thanks for sharing it with me! I agree the weather has been nuts - we got to 70 on Tuesday and have been in the 30's since - WTH?? I really enjoy your swaps! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: 30s now, then this weekend 70s. Your right WTH???
Comment: Thanks for the cool postcard ðŸ˜‹ Book depository looks a great site. I will definitely be checking it out more. We haven't had any winter at all. I'd love if it would get cool and dry but I think it's just going to stay warm. Have a great day, Nathan
Response: Glad you like it! Thanks for the rateðŸ˜
Comment: What a pretty PC - I love multiviews of foreign places - my way of traveling. I hope you'll find that job with good benefits. . . so hard to come by these days and I am so thankful I retired - I just don't think I could take the job market the way it is today. Times have changed so much in the working world and it must be so very difficult for those out there looking. Good luck. . . and thanks again for the very pretty PC.
Response: I like any touristy card that shows neat places. yes times have changed, its harder to get in anywhere. Some applications are 3to4 pages. Its silly! Thank youðŸ˜º
Comment: Cole....Thank you for my beautiful Peru PC. I have 2 nieces who are teachers in Peru and would love to visit them! We have had a lot of rain here too....so much better than SNOW this time of year so I won't complain...lol Happy New Year....Charlene
Comment: Coleen, thank you for the postcard of Union Station. I can't believe that it was once a railway station and now it is a luxury hotel. It is so huge and grandeur. I would love to see it. Shirley
Comment: OMG! This card really did need help. I'm an artistic person and I cannot believe that is sitting in a museum somewhere, ha! Thanks! If you want to get rid of your large envelopes, I can always use some. We can swap if you want. Good luck on your New year's resolution. I didn't really make one this year; still trying to feel it out I guess. But, I did make a theme for the year and it is "purpose".
Response: Ill send what I have left of the envies to get them off my hands. Purpose... We all have a purpose in life. Im still figuring mine out. Lol. I like your theme!
Comment: What a great PC - so interesting to see how much traffic there was on the street back in the 50s. . .wouldn't have expected to see that much! Our temps have been a bit crazy here too and so far we've had no snow. Have the merriest Christmas and joyous New Year . and hope to see you in lots of swaps in 2017.
Comment: Cole, thank you so much for the great Santa postcard. Eastern NC weather has be awful this year. We have never seen it so cold in the 7 years we have been here. We moved here from MA to get away from the cold. Shirley
Response: You are welcome, keep warm! Merry ChristmasðŸŽ„

Response: So glad you liked everything! Im also near Christmasville Rd. My middle name is Noelle. Spelled dif. Merry ChristmasðŸŽ„
Comment: Thank you for the Elvis postcard, Cole! That's neat that your Ma was a major fan. I don't know if my own mother has a favorite. My Dad, though? He loved the Beach Boys! :-) Thank you for sharing! And I hope your Thanksgiving was nice and that your Christmas will be nicer, too! :-)

Response: Glad you like this one and good eats! Thank you!:)
Comment: Hi Colleen! I love your New Orleans pc! I want to visit there so much, not sure about when Mardi Gras is going - might be a bit too crazy for me! LOL! Rockford I think is about 6 hours from Waterloo - we are close to St. Louis. Thanks so much for the Happy Mail on a day after a holiday (makes a double Monday, right? LOL!). Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I almost kept that card, I loved it to, glad you liked it! Mardi Gras looks like it could be rough. Lol Thanks for the great rate:)
Comment: I understand your frustration with your situation and it is a common one throughout the business world. I'm so glad that I'm retired because the 'games' that are played with employees by poor managers is getting worse and worse (I think). I have no ideas for a solution as it seems to be prevalent throughout the business world regardless of the type of industry. I hope good things will come your way and that you will be recognized and rewarded for your efforts -- that is what all workers want! Take care ~~
Response: Thanks for the encouragment, hope you are doing better and thanks for the great rate!:)
Comment: Thank you for the card and cute stickers! I've not seen those yet. I will use them in my journal page for the day. I grew up in Memphis! Still have family there...love coming to visit there. Have a Happy Halloween!! Take care...Kathy
Response: You are so welcome and Happy Halloween! I don't go to Memphis much, I usually go to Jackson, my youngest loves Memphis.
Comment: THank you so much for the awesome package of Halloween goodies! I have already used the ribbon to make some bows to decorate my house, and will use the door cling to decorate my front door. SO much fun! I am currently enjoying 'hunting' for a use for the fabric - i recently made a fabric wreath that could be a little fuller, so I think i will use it for that. Thanks again!
Response: So glad you liked it, I wish I was more crafty, I have fun buying for others that are, have a great Halloween:)
Comment: It's still in the 90's and quite humid here, too. Although I'm not looking forward to cold weather, like you, I do love Halloween. Thank you for the Central Park and Railroad postcards! â¤ï¸ðŸ˜ŠðŸ‘
Comment: WOW WOW WOW look at all the stuff!! I'm loving all the beads and jewelry supplies! I scored! One can never have too many fat quarters and they are a welcome addition to my stash~ The lace is spectacular and you know I always need clay~ The jewery bits I have pawed several times and will use it all up in crafty ways! Thanks for being such a thoughtful swap partner!
Comment: ROTFLOL, this is so funny, just had to give a heart for the way it cracked me up! thank you so much. My youngest starts in September. The other two will be hanging around home in November after that I don't know.
Comment: Hello Cole! This is amazing - your postcard to me for the swap came same day I made trip to my local post office - Elvis seemed everywhere. Inside post office was big banner to announce USPS is selling special Elvis CD, release of Elvis postage stamps. And, so special, I received your recipe PC for the swap showing Elvis! How magical! And, the recipe PC showing Elvis was interesting to my Mom & me, my nephews & niece asked me to make for them the meatballs & bacon for our next family movie at home night. Will be fun eating this summer, though we will be in the A/C.
Response: Lol, Elvis IS everywhere here, I can get dif postcards of him all the time, my Ma was a fan. I hope you enjoy your next family movie night with the recipe:)
Comment: I love the flower pattern on this postcard! I hope your fourth of July weekend is lots of fun. We're having a full house, but not for the holiday. My husband's family is coming to help us get the house ready to list!
Response: Sounds like a busy 4th for you, hope you get a chance to have fun, Thanks!
Comment: Thanks for a superb package. I love everything! The blue in the angel is so gorgeous that I'm going to keep it up by a window year round. You are courageous to send glass things in the mail, but you packaged them so well that nothing got broken. They are all in great shape and I'm so glad to be your partner in this swap!
Response: So glad the package made it in one piece,and that you like it:)
Comment: Thanks for the great card, Colleen! I've been to Graceland once, many years ago. A sports writer buddy of mine grew up in Memphis and as a kid hung out there when Elvis first bought the property!
Comment: Thank Colleen for the "Red" Tennessee Flag postcard you sent to me. I have enjoyed the postcard swaps searching for themes, subjects for the swap. Spent most of my Christmas relaxing as well. "Winter" in Florida is unusual - it was in 80'sF for Christmas! Have a Happy New Year!
I agree with you, this needs to be made soon. So simple looking, but I bet it tastes delish. It is also a recipe that my grandkids will love. When they get home from school, they want FOOD for a "snack", so I am always looking for something I can keep in the refrig for them to reheat. Thanks so much also, for the cute card. Love it!
Comment: Thank you Cole for the beautiful Thanksgiving card with bright sunflowers you sent to me for the swap! Warm days here in Florida, the cooler, few colder, nights here are changing the color of the leaves on the trees. One of my sister's banana plants (look like trees now,) has a branch of small bananas. Fun Thanksgiving at my sister's house we can have fresh fruits with our cereal.
Comment: This is funny, I was working on my swap last night-just got back from the in-laws- and picked out a Sandwich, cake and fast food recipe... I also have one for donuts to send ;) Should be in the mail Wednesday (PO closed for Veteran's Day Tues) Can't wait to make a Big Mac!
Comment: Hot apple cider is always a treat, adding caramel is just decadent. Guess I need to buy some!
When I was little I remember mom ran out of milk for the coffee, so we all got a scoop of ice cream added instead. Have not thought of that in years. Now I must rethink how I make hot chocolate. :)
Almost forgot, Thank you for the extra recipe card!
Response: Ice cream in coffee, I like the idea, just don't like coffee, lol I do drink french vanilla cappuccinos, I might slap some in there. Like to hear your stories:)
Comment: Thank you for the recipe book! You got that out in the mail really fast! You picked some really great sounding recipes. I can't wait to try them! My daughter laughed when I got my package. She said "Ha, she beat you to it mom!" We had just finished discussing how there was no way I was going to let the recipe book swap sit in my dashboard until March! Thanks also for the dish towels. I needed some new ones! Happy Swapping!
Response: I cannot tell a lie was working on it before I started the swap. lol glad you liked the swap:)
Comment: Love this card... I've always liked yellow flowers, and I was tickled when I learned a couple of years back that in Europe women give their friends yellow flowers on International Womens Day!
Comment: My husbands favorite food group is hamburger. I am pretty sure he will love your meatloaf. And who can resist an Elvis Sweet potato pie? Of course I love sweet potatoes, fries, pies, bread even baked with just a little butter... I've got my goodies ready to send for the Halloween swap! (Love the card!)
Response: Glad you liked:) the cute card I found in a Memphis Dollar tree. not a Memphis fan, but do plan on going back to where I got tons of postcards from as its outside of Memphis:) Yes I have my Halloween stuff ready too!
Comment: Thanks for the great card. I don't buy or do much for Halloween anymore. I live in a dark circle in a mobile home park that has 5 empty lots out of 11 in the circle. Not very many kids in this area.
Comment: Smart idea! ðŸ’— pop up timers. Never would've thought to share them. The spatula will be put to good use. I just sent 4 of them with my daughter to college. I needed new ones. Great timing. Thanks so much for the recipe cards also.
Comment: I love the PC that you sent. Thank you for the card and all that you do. I just got back from Tennessee. My son lives there and we needed to go help him. You can send some of that rain this way. We really, really need some in SC.
Response: Hope all is well with your son, what part of TN? Wish I could send rain your way, my garden is not looking good from all this rain:(
Comment: Thank you for the cool postcard. Strange to see that Egyptian looking statue in America. It is good and hot here, finaly. Have a great day. I am working 7 days a week from 6 hours a day up to 16 hours a day....I will survive!
Comment: Wow, Colleen, different & unexpected night scene in Oklahoma City, OK! Fascinating luminous lights, water reflection, etc. Beautiful view! I will be putting this postcard up on display in my apt. Thank you!
Comment: Great PC! I love places like this where they have something to see but also have great little shops and restaurants :-) It's the type of place that I can go to over and over again! Thanks for the great PC and have a great week ~~
Comment: Such gorgeous cards you sent for this scavenger hunt! Thank you. I particularly love the pyramid one, as I had no idea there was another building like that in the US other than the Luxor in Vegas...and I am partial to cows so loved the dairy card as well!
Comment: I've never been to Memphis other than to pass through but it looks like fun!! We've had a bit of winter weather although not as much as to the north and west of us :-) Thanks for the great PC and happy swapping ~~
Comment: Love the PC of Beale Street - looks fantastic! We're supposed to get snow tonight and tomorrow with temps dropping down into the 20s. . . supposed to be that way the rest of the week! Thanks again for the great PC and hope you stay warm ~~
Comment: I love this Colorado pc! :oD I lived in Colorado Springs (a 1,000 feet higher than Denver, in the foothills of the Rockies) for a few years, and am sorry I never made it back to visit - it's so beautiful there. I laughed when I read your temperature was 70 - it's 6 below here, and will stay below 0 for the rest of the week. With the wind chill factored in, many areas of the state are seeing temps of up to 50 below. Good ol' Minnesota! Thanks for the great pc! :o)
Comment: Thanks for this TN card with the beautiful horse. I don't have much to do for Christmas, put up the tree, a few lights, and wreath, that's all, have to get the cards out, don't send that many. Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas, and a wonderful 2014.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! I could never imagine the craziness that occurs around Thanksgiving shopping, you certainly have courage to bare that! Best wishes for a joyous holiday season!
Comment: I am the only single person in my family, so I raraly have to goo anything for holiday get togethers. I am more then capable, they just always give me something easy. (no complaints!) I did get all the Christmas stuff out this weekend, almost fully decorated. Thanks for the PC :)
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard! I am proud to say that I am FINISHED Christmas shopping and my house is decked out in fall decor! I know what you mean about it being hard to find fall stuff. I hate that Thanksgiving pretty much gets skipped over every year. But not in my house! Hugs! :)
Comment: Neat postcard! What an interesting place to live! Not sure it's quite my style, though. I'm more of a country cottage kind of girl. Rainy here too! Chalkboard paint is going to give those boys hours and hours of fun. Thank you for a fun swap!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great postcard of Kaaterskill Falls! Glad to hear it's warming up there ... it's not snowing here anymore, but I'm beginning to think it might never actually get warm again! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the GREAT postcard! I'm not the biggest Elvis fan either, but I LOVE the postcard! I was just never exposed to his music that much growing up. But I can appreciate a great musician, especially when he loved horses! :D My dad was excited to see that postcard. Thank you SO much! :D
Comment: Thank you for the postcards. I do like a few of them and the ones that are not "me", as you put it, I will send along to my daughter. I am sure she will like them. I really liked this swap. Thank you for hosting it.
Response: I plan to have another soon, thanks for joining:)
Comment: And here I was thinking I'm the only swapper special enough to smear the ink... teehee! Sometimes we go to the local ballpark to watch the farm team that plays there. Although I'm really not what you'd call a fan, I do enjoy going to the games. Thank you for a view of the park where the Redbirds play. You know we both love red birds!
Comment: lol its cold up here i asked my friend in australia do they have fake snow during christmas....because i couldnt imagine a warm tropical like christmas it just seems wrong....i guess i just gotta get out of nyc
Response: Well right now its in the 60s here in TN, strange for December!
Comment: Mmmmh mh! Your postcard made my mouth water i hope all the dishes turned out great! I can't cook at all, but i LOVE to eat. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here, but it sure does sound fun! Hope your grandson loved the food as well..Thanks so much for the pc and message :)
Response: Awesome, so glad it made it. all the dishes did turn out great! you have a great day:)
Comment: Thanks so much for the San Francisco postcard ... it's a lovely view! :) ETA: Got the second card today, too - thank you! I was just in New Orleans a week ago, but failed to find ANY city view cards, so this is perfect! :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it, the other is on its way, I like it better:)
Comment: Hello and thank you for the Tennessee postcard. Always a pleasure to receive a postcard! My daughter lives in Clarksville TN and she says momma it's cold here! LOL! I know what you mean, I stay cold in winter too. Thanks again, Hugs, Dawn Gallop stampmom9
Comment: Thank you for the Cotton Museum PC. We went through that area in Sept going from Nashville to Memphis. We saw quite a few cotton fields there and north of Memphis is SE MO. Also in 1961 we lived in Huntsville, AL and there was a cotton field right behind our house as we lived on the edge of town in a new housing area.
Response: Thats cool, I wouldn't want to live anywhere but the country:)
Comment: Hi Colleen, received your p/c today - thank you so much. I'm especially pleased that it's a recipe (which I collect) and it features New Orleans which is one of my favourite destinations in the USA - had a few very, very good times there. I too start my day with Swapbot and I've had such fun and received some wonderful surprises. Happy swapping, Barbara
Comment: If I could I would give ya a couple extra hearts on this one! WOW! Just the name on the recipe card moved me. he he he I thought Texas had the market on these babies. lol I love this card! thank you VERY VERY VERY much... ((hugs))
Comment: Cool postcard and the envelope you sent it in. Thank you! I can't believe you already have tomatoes! But I did just notice my tiny hot pepper plant has a huge pepper dangling from it - harvest is early this year!
Response: Yep harvest is very early! enjoy your hot peppers:)
Comment: Thanks for your patience! I fried my keyboard on my pc... I'm back now. I really needed a new potholder-thank you!!! And I love Taste of Home, I get the mag not these...too cool! And thanks for the recipe cards and coasters too! I really liked doing this swap...maybe next time scavenger in the kitchen??? Thanks so so much! Jen and again, sorry for the wait!
Comment: Thank you very much! It arrived yesterday and today I had fun reading it on my way to job :) Envelope was amazing, too! I really enjoyed this swap. Hope you will swap something like that in future :))
Comment: Here in Ontario we have not gotten much for snow yet, which like you said is very unusual. By now we are usually dealling with high snowbanks and shoveling ewww. This year we have a light dusting that will likely be gone in a few days. I am loving it!!
Comment: Hi there!:) Got your recipe today!:) My son L<3VE'S Cream Cheese Pies and can't wait to make this one for him.I really liked the "Western Saturday Night" PC you sent it on.:) It's a great "I SPY" sort of graphic...there is so much detail to it. Every time I look at I see something new. This would make a great puzzle.:) Have a Great Day and Thanks again for the recipe! Happy Swapping!:) Ciao!
Comment: I got my swap item last night, and it was just delightful to open that up and see what you had made for me. What a clever idea to make a paperweight. It will live in my kitchen, as I am always having notes and recipes blow away as I am testing recipes. You rock! Thanks!
Comment: Hi there! I love the PC you sent me! So very vintage! Now to answer your question> One of my favorite things to do everyday is to do something creative. Lately that has been sewing, cross stitch, and my absolute new favorite--- art journaling. :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard. Sorry to be so late in rating. I had to purchase a new computer and wait for the internet provider to hook it up. Then my family had to help me with some things.
Hope things work out for you with school and a job. Your swap partner, Linda
Comment: Thankyou for the lovely PC. My favourite things I do almost daily? Well I have two: Checking my mailbox (I am such a looser, I know) and playing with my dogs (this happens a couple times a day).
Comment: and here I thought it was the button or memo envie. I didn't realize you sent to me.
I love my goodies. Allison claimed the glitter glue to share with me. I am loving the mitt and cloths...I needed some new ones. And I'm overjoyed with the notecards. Someone sent me one once and I hadn't seen them anywhere near me.
Thankyou for a great envie of smiles.
Comment: Oh my goodness. I love the tags you sent. I've not seen any like that before and the snowmen stickers are adorable. I think Allison will claim them if she sees them so I'll have to hide them.
Thankyou for such a wonderful card as well.
Comment: Your "Cakeface" postcard arrived. Yay! Great shot although I'll pretend she's covered in cupcakes. Wonder where the first pc went?!?
Response: Kids and cake, always one of my fave things! maybe it will show up months later, I found it odd too as everyone else got theirs, but some people have been saying that the machine is eating stuff at the post office.:( Bad evil machine!!!!!!
Comment: You know me so well, yes all the trees are decorated and the stocking are hung by the fire :) One of my secrets to speed shopping is Amazon. I can do a lot of damage very quickly and they ship pretty fast for not too much. Thank you for the great postcard - Anna
Comment: I'm giving you a 5 and a heart even though I don't think it's right to call the hostess a buttmunch. You also said you won't give her a star unless you give hearts so here you go. Gosh. Some swappers can be SO greedy. ;)
Comment: Thanks for the very cute Australian postcard! I hate to tell you, but we have had an unseasonably cool summer (last summer was the opposite and it was extremely hot and humid). Good luck on your search. Anna
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! We don't have any better weather here either, just yesterday there were really bad floods everywhere so you had to be very careful! I guess this is the time of year fir really bad weather :(
Comment: The closest thing to giving you extra hearts is giving you a star. This was such a thoughtful package. I am so grateful for the recipe book fulled with dairy-free recipes. I love the whole package and can't thank you enough. Thank you!
Comment: I'm so sorry it took so long to rate, I thought I already had...I archived the swap by mistake, thank you sooo much for reminding me, again I'm really sorry.
I truely loved all you sent, Genesis took the little snow globe. And I loved the box, I use them alot!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. That's so sweet that you took in the blind kitten. My original kitty, whom I left with my parents when we got a new house, is blind in one eye. He's such a great cat! I hope you enjoy Bridgette.
Comment: Well the outside of the package may have taken a beating but the inside contents were wonderful! I had to work my way through all those goodies to find the towels, but everything was great, thank you so, so much for such a stupendous package, it certainly made my day. I particularly liked the hohoho mug, which arrived safe and sound, and the towels with the really cute christmas tree ornament cookie cutter. The apron, dishtowel and napkins are really pretty and will be put to good use during this holiday season. Thank you - Anna
Comment: Thank you bunches! Sorry for the delayed rating lol...But it looks like the package took the scenic route to get here:) But I loved it and it was all safe and sound so all is good:) Thanks for a great swap!
Comment: What can I say besides wow? This is seriously one of the best things I've ever received. Your work is beautiful (as is Codi's), and the sentiment behind it all is very touching and real. Thank you for sharing your work with me and in such a beautiful way. I'll always treasure it. ::hugs::
Comment: Thank you for the card. I was wondering if there was supposed to be something else in it? I noticed you put 69cents postage on it. The envelope had a slit in the side so if you did send something it never made it (not that I was expecting anything extra). Have a great holiday!

Comment: Colleen, Thanks for the Halloween card...boy your fast! Is the other little Halloween card an ATC? I have always wanted to try making them but wasn't sure how they were done...may be I'll try making one now. Thanks again, Lynnie
Comment: There's not much I can say beyond thank you for sharing that with me, and I hope it helped. You have all my love and support, and I hope that things get better for you very soon. Thank you for the lovely ATCs as well. You are very sweet.
Comment: OMG!!!!I love all the stickers, the butterflies and flowers, just what I need.I ran out. Scooby-doo and disney, and the keepsake,WOW!!!what can I say but OMG!!! thank-you soooo much. If I could I would give more hearts.P:0)))))
Comment: Hope you had fun cleaning. Looks like that's what I'll be doing, tomorrow. I'm on vacation and I keep putting it off for fun things...might as well get it over with, though, before I have to get back to work.
Comment: Wow!! What a fabulous surprise!! I was so cheered up by your package! I can't tell you how appreciated the recipe book is with the veggie recipes!
The beads are remarkable - everything so personalized - I love it all! Thanks for the birthday bear, paperweight and journal as well - great day now that I've gotten your swap! ^________^
Comment: Thanks for all of the fun TN stuff! The little coin holder keychain is my favorite - I haven't seen those in a long time! We didn't have a TN shot glass for our collection yet. It was sweet of you to send a shirt for my son also.
Comment: My sister finally opened her box today. It was sitting here for 2 days until she came over and the suspense was killing me! :) She loved everything that you sent her!! Especially the cute little monkey. Thank you so much for sending her such a great package. She's excited about swapping now and has signed up for a few swaps.
Comment: Thanks for such a great swap!! I absolutely love everything, especially the patterns, bead tray and new hooks!! Your wrapping was *perfect* for me, too - I'll recycle all the colors of paper for a collage project in class!! thanks again, and Happy Birthday to you, too!! <3 <3 <3
Comment: JASPER GOT HIS BOX TODAY! HE LOVES EVERYTHING IN IT!!! YOU AND COLE DID GREAT! HE ESPECIALLY LOVED ALL THE GUM AND THE CRAYONS, I ALWAYS BUY THE 24 PKS, HE SAID HE DIDN'T KNOW THEY HAD THAT MANY COLORS OF CRAYONS! (EXPECT A NOTE FROM JASPER IN THE MAIL :) THANKS A BUNCH FOR MAKING HIS DAY!
Comment: I received my package a few days ago..my little girl has been sick with pneumonia. She is feeling better now. We loved the package. Your items were great. Thank you very much. Kinleigh was so excited to see Dora at the bottom...I wish you could have seen her face.
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome pens, notepad, and journal. What a fantastic swap, and you know I love kitties! Thank you. I received my other swap from your daughter, and you both sent me similar things. How funny! :)
Comment: Hello Colleen,
This swap is our first time, I believe, that we have met for a swap. I certainly hope it is not our last as it has been wonderful to meet some very kind, gentle, and caring people since I have become involved with swap-bot.
I do want to extend my appreciation for your genorosity you shared with me through this swap. You not only blessed me with a beautiful journal, a fun bookmark, and some playful pens, BUT you also added two extra note pads that matched the journal. The note pads will be used as I am a list maker. The bookmark will come in handy as I am a reader and the pens will be used to make those lists, take notes, and/or to work in one of my journals. I collect journals. Some I do write in. Some I just keep until I find the perfect "job" for each of them.
I do hope that we will meet again "down the road" at future swaps. Until that happens--continued Happy Swapping!!!!!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the package and hope to see you in more of my swaps or others:) That is what I like about swap-bot the most nice people like you:)
Comment: Thank You Thank You Thank You! I loved my package! You hit all the right colors and all the items that I like! YOU ROCK COLE! I SOOOOO APPRECIATE IT! I WILL THINK OF YOU WHEN I AM USING THE ITEMS YOU GOT ME!
Response: You are so welcome:) glad you liked it Annamaria:)
Comment: Thank you for the mug, curse you swap-bot, I think that I will be starting a new collection now trying to get a mug from all 50 states and your mug started me on that path. Thanks for the coffee and the candy too!!!
