Comment: I was in shock when I got that amazing package from you. The envelope alone was a work of art and then the whole envelope flip album and the letter. Holy smokes, you outdid yourself. I love PINK and it was perfect. I've been sick the past couple weeks so I am sorry it took me a few extra days to get on here and give you some love. I am going to write you back, but it might take me a few days or so as I'm still getting back on my feet. I wish I could give you a bucket of hearts!!!
Response: Hope you're feeling better!! <3 I'm so happy you enjoyed it. :)
Comment: Okay so first off, your handwriting - HOW! so pretty and easy to read! ^^ Sounds like you would be a super majestic unicorn, haha! Your description was on-point! [insert that one emoji here that's popular lately :P]

Thank you so much. A million hearts to you!
Comment: WOW!! I think this is the best envelope I've ever received!! I love it!! Thank you for the card, nice message and the extras! I remember years ago they dyed the River Liffey green! They haven't done it since!
Response: I'm so happy you got it ! I just wanted to let you know how said I was that the mail man would not let me send it naked!! He is now my arch nemesis! lol!
Comment: What an amazing thing to receive in my mailbox today!! It was like a burst of spring!! Really helped brighten this gloomy day. I really like the little pocket you made out of washi. How did you make it??? Have a great day!!

Thank you for yet another unique and beautiful Irish card!!!! Where do you get your stationary? I knew that about the clover and the trinity. I was born and raised Xatholic now I am just a Christian:-)
Your artwork on my envie is jut stunning!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it❤️
I’ll be keeping it in my scrapbook. You even used a waxed shamrock for a seal. How cool is that?
You sure do fun swaps. I hope mine can measure up someday.

You are a treasure!!! thank you for the outstanding calligraphy envie, the beautiful clover card, washi tape, and small envie of stickers. This was truly green mail that filled my mailbox with LOVE!!!
Who knew that a Leprechaun was a fairie and not a person. I am just stunned!
You are a generous and kind person and I love your heart🍀❤️🍀
Comment: Well, this was F A N T A S T I C! The envie alone deserves many hearts. . . what beautiful calligraphy and I adore writing on a black background. Thank you for all the lovely, fun goodies you included--can't wait to use all those Tim Holtz-y embellies!
Response: Yay!! I am so glad you loved it. I took many pictures of it because I surprised myself at the turnout, haha!!
Comment: Your swap finally arrived! Where do I begin? You have set the new standard for decorated envelope. I am so happy to now have an idea on ways to decorate. And that wax seal is cool! I need one of those. Unfortunately, the PO must have had problems sending it through the machine. Luckily it is barely in one piece. The note card was cute. Enjoy hearing about Zelda (and Brenda too :). Then you gave me all of these wonderful cat items. Thank you so much for your generosity. Happy Swapping.
Response: I think the USPS needs a refresher course on the Non-Machinable stamp! lol But I'm so happy you liked it! <3 <3
Comment: First off, I loved the amazing mail art envelope you sent. The lettering is beautiful & OMG, your handwriting inside the note is so nice. Thank you for the stickers & washi tape as well. What a great selection on green washi. I looked for it everywhere for St. Patrick's Day & all I could find were plain clovers. Grayson was so happy he got a surprise too!! You made this a great swap & I really enjoyed being your partner. Have a great day!
Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. It means a lot!!
Comment: Wow, thank you for such a beautiful swap. I just adore how you decorated the envelope! Did you use gouache and inks? Stunning! Also, I must thank you for sharing your day with me. I am shocked those blood-thirsty mosquitos are out and about this time of year! Make sure to put on some bug spray haha. It has been rather cold in Seattle and I am super jealous of your warm weather! Thank you again and have a good one!
Response: You are welcome! <3 <3 It's actually just some water colors and some calligraphy ink. :) The mosquitos are ruthless in the south! lol
Comment: thank you for your letter I really enjoyed it. I love the two postcards I will send one to my Daughter who lives in Canada. She collects postcards too and will love it. I love the lettering on the envelope, it is beautiful I tried to do that once and failed horribly LOL. Also I hear you on the Chihuahua I have one too that is 'un-trainable' she was rescued from a hoarder/backyard breeder and to scared to learn.(try toys to train if yours does not go for treats or try better treats ie boiled chicken)
Response: You're welcome and thanks so much for the tip! Maybe I can get through to him one day lol <3
Comment: Thank you for the card. Me and my single friends normally do our own Valentines day thing, dinner and silly gifts. One time we just went out to a place that has awesome pie and just ate pie and took lots of silly pictures.
Response: You're welcome. Sounds like fun !! <3 <3
Comment: Thank you! This is so funny! I used these SAME vintage punch Valentines and vintage stickers for this swap. Hilarious! I could not with those envies though. I kept clipping off a side! I tip my hat to your success! ðŸ˜¹
Response: Well, you know the old saying. Great minds think alike !! I'm glad you enjoyed. Hopefully we will swap again soon!
Comment: Here's your real rating -- I got the cards mixed up, and gave you someone else's rating. I really like your package. The large valentine is extra special, and I have never seen one like the small tri-fold one before. Thanks for a great swap, and happy swapping!
Response: I'm glad you got it figured out! Thanks so much. <3 <3
Comment: Hello Samantha,
Thanks for the lovely message. You will be my first swap partner in private swap, but I am intrested. I will try to find some interesting postcard for you too. I saw that you love kawai, sloths, Britney and cooking. I will try to come up with something suitable for you, hints from you are welcome. Moholick it is rather an unusual name in Poland, but the 'ik / ick' endings are frequent here in families of Jewish descent. Hope you're doing well! Ps. I will also send you a private message about our potential private swap.
Comment: I don't care about the game this year. I am excited to see Justin Timberlake during halftime.
There are some great videos on learning to crochet if you want to give it a try again. Moogly blog has tons of videos.
