Comment: Thank you for the very nice ATC.We are just now trying to plan a social-distance meet with our daughter and granddaughter. They live in the state of Massachusetts, which has been a hot spot.
We have had welcome rain here the past three days. It has been a very hot and dry spring and early summer here.
Response: So glad you got it! I hope it works out with your socially distanced meet-up. It has been hot here now, too, but always a thunderstorm lurking. Have a good one!
Comment: You chose the perfect PC for me I love Maya Angelou! I am hopeful as well. I just hope we don't lose steam and that our typically "do-nothing" congress will actually DO something effective and not just symbolic.
Response: Oh, I'm so glad that I picked such a fitting card for you then! 😊 Yes, I totally agree with you, there needs to be more than symbolic gestures. Take care! ❤️
Comment: I got your swap today! Those teas look (and smell) amazing, I can't wait to try them. Thank you for choosing them for me! I loved your envelope too, and those sweet treat stickers. What a wonderful piece of mail to find in my mailbox. ❤ I'll PM you about a private swap! :D
Comment: Thank you so much ! I know the story of some of those kids. The ones here got taken away. My great great grandfather was Adolf,but Fred became the family name that got passed on . I hope all is well there too,and you are enjoying the re opening .
Response: It's interesting how names carry new meaning through history. Thinking of current trends with the name Karen. 🤔 I'm glad you enjoyed my postcard and that it finally reached you! Actually, I'm so excited to get your rating, because I'm hopeful that means other swaps I sent around the same time will finally arrive soon! Have a wonderful evening and take care! 😊❤️
Comment: Hi Donate,
I can relate to most things you mentioned in your zine. I also do not normally hang out with people, despite the current situation. But, that said, was hoping to go on a Tinder date. Instead, I deleted the app all together 😷😷
Response: Oh, I'm glad you received it! Thanks for the nice rating! ❤️ I hope you get an even better date to go on once it's safer to meet people again. 😉
Comment: YA it's arrived took quite a while because of covid-19 reduced air flights - 15th May from the US delivered New Zealand 13th June. I enjoyed the poem you picked to send. I will be looking for more of her's to read. Thanks
Response: It actually came from Germany and I'm so glad to hear it has finally reached you! I'm glad you like the poem, too. Have a nice week! ❤️
Comment: It Arrived! You were right to wait and see for another week for this postcard! I'm so glad I got it because I Love the clouds and sand dune grasses and the ocean in the background. So Awesome with the postal stamps, too!! Thank you! ♥!
Response: Oh, I'm so glad to hear it arrived and that you like it! Thank you for your patience and kindness! Have a lovely weekend! ❤️
Comment: Danke schön! I am so happy that you wrote in German, and even more happy that I could understand it all without using Google Translate :D Although I can understand a lot, I still find it hard to write German, I have to look up a lot of words. But receiving postcards like yours make me learn more and more :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Response: Aww, so glad to hear that! I made a couple mistakes trying to write small, so I'm glad you were still able to read it. Schönes Wochenende! ❤️
Comment: Hey! Thanks for the super cute card! The stanps are so nice, i wish we sold cute stamps here :(( The washi tape & stickers are super nice also! Thank you for the little additions!
It's so funny how we keep getting partnered together!! I hope I can send you another PC soon <3
To answer your question, i'm pretty basic with what i drink, I like cold beverages like lemonade & some energy drinks, but i prefer hot drinks like tea and hot chocolate! I've heard of Horchata but never tried it, i'm not sure i'd like it if its spiced ahaha
All good over here for now! Hope you're staying safe! x
Response: I'm so glad you like it! Actually I was just ordering more stamps and thinking about how many of ours were boring/ugly, haha! But it is true, we do have some cute ones like the Peanuts stamp. I guess if they were all cute I wouldn't be able to keep up, so it's better that way! Oh, and when I wrote spiced I meant like the way a chai tea latte is spiced, so like cinnamon, etc. :) Take good care! x
Comment: I loved your TWO boards! They felt like sunshine for my soul. Thank you so much for sharing and taking the time. I repinned a few. I loved this one: "When thinking about life remember this: no amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future".
Response: Yes, that's a good one! So glad you liked them. Sunshine for the soul is exactly the vibe I was going for. ☀️💛☀️
Comment: Thanks for the swap.
I designed a smart system to repel snow, so everyone wouldn’t get angry when I wished for some for snowshoeing. It could work for dust. If I could only get the cost below $60,000 a square foot…
Response: That sounds great! Pitch the idea to some city planners in places with lots of snow/ice. 🤔😆
Comment: Hi Donate! Love the pc and yes, how I miss the beach! We did make it on our Feb trip and I loved every minute on the beach there but think I will not get back to one this year, although time will tell! I also miss flea markets and thrift stores - some of the thrift stores are going to reopen next week with all the needed precautions, so we will see how crazy that will be! Wishing you all the best! Hugs, please stay safe, and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm glad you got and liked the postcard! I don't think the beach is in the cards for me either this year, but some flea markets that were cancelled so far might happen at later dates, so maybe I will cautiously go to one of those. Hugs and you stay safe, too! 😊❤️
Comment: Thank you for your positive comments 😊. You’re so kind. I love swap bot. Some people scare me with negative comments tho and I am terrified to get a 3. I’m human but I’ll never get a 1 lol. We do have a lot in common haha. Take care love.
Response: I know what you mean, I get nervous about negative comments or "is my swap good enough" when I see strict profiles, too. I just try to remember, it's supposed to be fun and take a step back when I get to hung up on things. So far, so good. Hope you keep enjoying it and have a lovely Sunday! 😊❤️
Comment: Thank you for sharing your day with me. I loved the background you used on the email. I loved the last two pictured you shared. The food looked yummy and the sky at the beach at night was beautiful.
Response: Thank you for the ❤️
It does look so yummy, I could go some lazy days at the beach right about now!
Comment: Haha, ach Du Arme mit Deinem Riesenrad-Arm-Problem :) Also in Anbetracht dieser Geschichte ist Deine Handschrift sensationell :) :) Vielen lieben Dank für die humorvolle Igelkarte!! Pass gut auf Dich auf und bleib gesund!
Response: Es freut mich, dass sie Dich so schnell erreicht hat und ihren Zweck erfüllt hat! ;) Vielen Dank für das ❤️ und das nette Kommentar. Pass gut auf Dich auf und bleib gesund!
Comment: SORRY ! Habe Deine wunderbare, handgeschrieben (Front) schon laaange bei mir und bewundere Deine Lettering skills... Super schön ! DANKE !!!!
Response: Es freut mich, dass sie Dir gefallen hat. :) Ich hatte die von ein Stabilo Set zum lettering lernen und hab es von dort abgeguckt. Von alleine kann ich so was nicht! Hat aber Spaß gemacht. :) Liebe Grüße und bleib gesund!
Comment: Hey Donate! Yep, I miss the feeling of not feeling contaminated too! The low-key, constant anxiety about feeling like you might be spreading the virus wears me down sometimes. But I try to stay positive most days! We'll get through this all together! Stay safe!
Response: I know what you mean! Yes, it's a struggle sometimes, but I think trying to stay positive is key. Hope you are well and stay healthy! ♥️
Comment: Liebe Donate,
vielen Dank für deinen Brief. Ich habe mich sehr darüber gefreut! Die Tiere sind alle zu süß und ich kann es kaum erwarten sie zu benutzen, obwohl ich sie ja am liebsten selbst behalten würde :)
Vielen Dank nochmal!
Ich schicke dir liebe Grüße,
Response: Freut mich, dass sie dir gefallen haben. 🙂 Liebe Grüße und bleib gesund! ♥️
Comment: So hard to be far away. My son is in Chicago, and I'm in Phoenix. I'd like to gather all of us up and put us in one place to cocoon together. But we have to make do with video calls. Stay safe!
Response: I know what you mean! So thankful we do have video calls these days. Hope you all stay well! ♥️
Comment: Thank you for sharing your experiences of how the virus is affecting your life at the moment. I can relate to how you are concerned about your loved ones living in another country than you do. So do mine. I will be replying back by email soon. Happy Easter.
Response: It's difficult, but thankful for technology that makes it easy to get in touch quickly. Hope you and your family stay well!
Comment: I really enjoyed your email (Thank you!) That has to be really hard on you to live one place and your parents living here in the States. Take good care of yourself and please, stay safe! (Hugs)
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is hard being so far apart, especially during times like these. Thankful for the technology we have nowadays that keeps us close despite the distance! I hope you are able to stay safe and healthy, too! (Hugs)
Comment: I loved your email! Seriously it was gorgeous! Plus, I loved reading through it and the illustrations you included made it all the more better too! Thank you for putting a smile to my face with such a lovely email! Stay safe, happy, and healthy during this time!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! I love those old illustrations and the stories are just so nice. Hope you are well and stay healthy!
Comment: Thank you for the PC. I hope that you are safe and healthy. In Poland, the situation is getting worse day by day despite the introduction of additional protection measures and restrictions. It turned out that we are living in difficult times. You just have to stay safe and survive it somehow.
Response: Glad you got the PC alright. Definitely difficult times, still feels unreal! I hope you are able to stay safe at work and that you and your son stay healthy! ❤️
Comment: I almost cried (happy tears) while reading your letter! It made my day! Thank you so much for sharing your washi tape and stickers with me! And my mom always tells me "this too shall pass" as well! I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
Response: Aww, I'm so glad to hear that! 🙂 Glad it reached you safely. Thank you for the heart. Take good care of yourself! ❤️
Comment: Well, I just loved my Note Card from Germany!!!! Fun envy, great card to use in future and loved the comments and extra "sayings". So glad you joined my swap and were my partner. Needed the smiles.
Blessings during these troubled times!
Response: So glad it made you smile! I really enjoyed this swap, great idea! Hope you and your husband are well!
Comment: Thank you for the nice postcard! Nice to know you have enjoyed my swaps :) Having a bit of break now because of the current situation, but once we are over it I will be hosting again. Sweden actually also have same international postage price to any country abroad, but I just like to have shorter waiting times and less customs dealing.
Take care and all the best!
Response: Oh, that's interesting about the postage! Thank you for the nice rating. I hope you are having a good weekend and stay healthy!
Comment: Your postcard with the dog and toilet rolls made me laugh! I'm sure there's many people lately who would love that many toilet rolls. :) The pen I use for postcards is just called "soft touch rollerball", they're on Amazon! Or if you can't find them, I sometimes use a standard black Staedler finaliser too
Response: :D Glad it made you laugh! I actually got it from someone else in the UK in another swap and thought now is the time to use it! Thanks for the info, I'll have to look for those pens. Have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! It's really cute, I love watercolour art and the stamps you added were so fitting! You pose a good point about everyone making a big fuss about not going out, when us introverts do it all the time! I suppose we're just one step ahead of everyone :) Stay safe out there!
Response: Glad you liked it! I actually sent you two postcards on the same day, so they must have gotten separated on their journey! Hope you get the other one soon, too. Take good care and stay healthy!
Comment: Liebe Donate,
da bin ich wieder mit meiner zweiten Bewertung. Vielen lieben Dank für deine Postkarte. Hat mich sehr gefreut von dir nochmal "beschenkt" zu werden. Schade zwar das du noch nicht in Wien warst. Es ist wirklich eine schöne Stadt mit vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten :)
Abgesehen davon, ich habe keinen einzigen Grammatik Fehler gefunden! ;)
Viele liebe Grüße, und bleib gesund!
Response: Hallo, liebe Julia! Freut mich, dass es bei dir angekommen ist. Demnächst musstest du noch ein drittes Mal Post von mir kriegen. :) Viele liebe Grüße und pass gut auf dich auf!
Comment: Thanks for the great list. My older daughter was a freshman in HS at that time. I remember a lot of those songs from her playing them. It is funny; I can’t tell you half of what I was doing yesterday but I can pull obscure lyrics , from 50 years ago, out of my head.
Response: Thanks for the nice rating! Yes, it's funny how that works - I got to the store today and then realized I had forgotten my wallet, but play a ballad from the 90's and I'll have no problem remembering the lyrics! :)
Comment: How cool to have been able to click on the links to your songs! I remember most of them well. My partners get to hear songs from 1967! I wonder if that will be the oldest ones?!? Thank you again!
Response: Thanks for the lovely rating. I'm glad you enjoyed my list! I actually received songs from @vlhafer54 from 7th grade in 1967, too! So fun! :)
Comment: Liebe Donate,
ich danke dir vielmals für den wunderschönen frühlingshaften Folder mit all den schönen Sachen. Ich wünschte ich könnte dir mehr als ein Herz geben. Deine Post hat mir den Tag verschönert! Vielen lieben Dank nochmal!! 🥰😍
Response: Ich bin so froh, dass es bei dir angekommen ist und dir eine Freude gemacht hat! :) Vielen Dank für das liebe Rating!
Comment: Thank you, Donate, for your beautiful tea package. I was wondering about the envelope because I didn't know where to insert my letter opener but realized you upcycled an old envelope. It's beautiful. All of it - your letter, how the tea was presented, and the envelope. Thank you so much for the thought and care you put into it. =) May have you have a glorious week!
Response: Aww, thank you, your comment means a lot to me! I'm so glad you liked it. :)
Comment: I have the same problem with my name. Thank you for remembering Sati.
Response: Glad you got my postcard! I ran out of room on the card, but I picked it for you, because in your profile you wrote that you like things written in foreign languages. It says: Sometimes my motivation runs naked through a meadow with a cocktail :D
Comment: Thank you for your card. I have never been in Heilbronn, although I passed your city multiple times on the autobahn.
Response: Glad you got my postcard! I got yours today, too, and I was sooo excited, because it is the first piece of mail I have received since starting on swap-bot! I did a little dance after finding it in my mailbox. :D
Comment: Thanks so much for sharing your dream trip - I hope that you will be able to take this journey with your family, that would be so awesome! Also it would be great for you to be able to look and maybe come up with other things you can find there about your ancestors. Have a great week!
Response: Thank you! I love to learn about my family history. Have a great week, too! :)
Comment: Hello! I enjoyed reading your email. I would LOVE to travel and experience my family's own history. It's rumored we had a castle in Ireland that's now a bed and breakfast. I think it would be fun to go stay there!
Response: Wow, that would be so awesome to find and go stay there! I hope you can do it! Thank you for the fun swap and the heart. ♡♡♡
