Comment: Thank you for the gift and for the nice note. I used to go by "Nikki" when I was younger. :) Seems we have a bit in common! I envy your having visited S. Africa! So many places to visit, so little time (and money, ha!) Merry Christmas! :)
Comment: This was a lovely card, and it made me smile so you get a heart. It was hard to find you in order to rate, though, because the swap name wasn't on the PC. Just a little reminder. Happy swapping!
Comment: I am so jealous of your knitting. I am a mad crocheter (Is that a word?) but just cant seem to get the hang of it. I haven't given up though!!! So love the postcard.
Response: Funny cause I struggle with crochet - I can do granny squares but not a straight piece for the life of me. I keep telling myself I'm going to work on it but just have too much knitting to enjoy.
Comment: Gail, thank you so very much! I love the knitted packet that you sent me for this swap. I am going to have to look at your Pintrest board and see if you put up the pattern. I really like it! Thanks.
Response: I printed out the pattern from wherever I found it so if you don't find it, message me and I'll send it to you.
Comment: I got it yesterday...Opened it this morning.....OMGolly..I love it all. I couldnt save it for no room in my stocking so I opened it. Sending you a big cyber hug. I love it all. Exactly perfect for me (and my families needs LOL) I so appreciate you as a person and a swapper. Have a Wonderful Christmas Gail. Thank-you for giving me great presents!
Comment: This swap was a few days late but I did receive it--thank you for sending. I haven't opened it yet--going to save it for Christmas but thank you very much. I will update this after Christmas when I open it! Thank you so much.
Response: I am sorry for the lateness; had it all ready but couldn't seem to get to town and the post office.
Comment: Gail, thank you for the sweetest card! Your message was so touching. I feel the same! This year i'm crafting most of my gifts and even though it is a lot of work, the joy and gratitude from others is worth it all. I just had a discussion this morning with my family about what we could do for someone else in need this season as a family. It's so important to share kindness this time of year. We are thinking about volunteering or giving out giftcards for meals to those in need. Your card just really spoke to me today. Thank you again!
Response: When I saw the quote I knew I had to use it - I spoke to me as well.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful tiger postcard. I actually have a huge stuffed animal of this tiger in my bedroom. I know how you feel about not planning things sooner. That can be really stressful. For mine I said I would visit my grandmother on her last day. I visited her a lot, but regret not being there that day.Unfortunately I got both of questions 1 for mine. I hope you have a wonderful week!
Comment: Hi Gail! Thanks so much for the lovely USA pc! You are so right, there are so many awesome places to visit and see! I'm thinking of waterfalls for my bucket list!! Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: YAY! I'm so excited about my birthday present, Gail!!! And so are Truth & Avril - I've been wanting to let them try the Iams treats and now they can! Thank you so much!!! and Thanks to Pixi, too!!! Love the hand towel, sticky notes, and you beautiful card! I especially like the Jelly Belly's & can't wait to tear into them! Thanks for being so thoughtful!!!
Comment: Thanks a bunch for the Wisconsin map card, Gail. Very interesting. That is a very ambitious project you have for this year... I had to google to see how many lighthouse there were in Wisc. Wow, lots of them --- you'll be busy.
Comment: Lovely card from Canada. I have visited both western (BC) and eastern (Ontario & Quebec) provinces, but nothing in between. On the bucket list but well behind Europe, I'm sad to say. Happy swapping.
Comment: Thank you for the sweet card! I had seen this card in the store, but they had sold out when I went back to get them. Thank you for sending this one to me! I also love the little ruler -- it's already come in handy. Thank you and Happy Valentine's!
Comment: Thanks for all of the teas. I'm looking forward to trying them. I had cows growing up so your card was a fun surprise. My brother-in-law owns a small plane and enjoys flying. I let he take me up one time. Do you ever fly with your hubby?
Response: I'm glad you like the teas and card. I do fly with my husband quite a bit. We enjoy "fly-ins" when weather permits - flying to small airports to enjoy a meal.
Comment: Thank you very much the card is very cute and creative. Happy swapping. This will be the first card I ever made. O am a little nervous because there are swappers out there that are very blunt, I almost quit because my feelings were hurt.
Response: Glad you like it! And don't let the rude spoil your fun. We all encounter someone like that a time or two. Be nice yourself and keep on swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful gift! I was in desperate need for some new pencils but am on a strict budget so I wasn't allowing myself to buy any! I can't wait to use them! The coloring book is lovely too!
Comment: You asked me what I do for other people that gives me the most happiness, and I think the answer is that I make dinner for my friends, because as "starving" college students there's nothing we seem to love more than a home cooked meal!
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Christmas card and for the goodies. I played the Christmas trivia and I got 2 of the 3 questions right! What fun! I hope you find lots of wonder filled surprises during the holidays!
Comment: Thanks for card and a special thanks the extras, The purple Vellum is beautiful. I gave you a heart because I appreciate that you took the time to read my profile!!! To answer your question, I've never done ATC's, but I might have to give them a try. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Comment: Thank you for the vintage style postcard. It reminds me of my childhood Christmas. Thank you for sharing your weather and Christmas excitement....you have earned a heart for making this extra special for me. Happy holidays.
Comment: It's been sent back (on Tuesday). Thanks for the card you gave me. I love it! So cute I've put it on display with my other Scottish card (showing a man in a kilt putting fake paw prints around Loch Ness and saying "We are getting ready for the tourist season". Together they are great. Thank you Thank you.
Response: I got the PC today...thanks for the lovely note!
Comment: I love this postcard of the buck and mallards - thank you! :oP When the creek that borders the back end of my property is dry, the deer will mosey on over. Otherwise, I see them only when I'm driving - they're all over the place, you know what I mean. ;o) Plenty of ducks though - the two lakes in town
are a big help for that.
Comment: Thank you so much for this fantastic postcard! Interestingly, I had a little house finch peering at me rather intently out on the back deck earlier today -- I wonder if he was letting me know that your card was waiting in my mailbox? :) xo
Comment: Hello Gail,
Thank you for the 2 postcards you sent me for this swap. I will get them off and on their way when I have a new partner. Thank you for the extra postcard you sent me for my Postcard Collection.
Comment: Thanks for the gift Gail! It's going in my stocking so I will send another more specific "thanks" when all is opened in December. And thanks for the inspiration and stickers too. Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day!
Comment: Thank you for the Valentine, I was excited to see that you are from Evansville. I use to substitute in that school district a lot when I lived in Stoughton. I still on house there actually, but probably won't return to live there. Thanks for swappingâ™¡
Comment: The Valentine was so cute :) And thank you for the sticker - let me tell you I was meant to receive that message today. I've been very depressed, then I receive a cute, fun Valentine and a sticker that says "Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year." That lifted my spirits SO much. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you! I'm having a little obsession with Wise Men cards this year. This one is fantastic and unique! Hope you and your family have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year!
Comment: Gail....Thank you for the beautiful Christmas card sharing many of the names of our Savior....the name above ALL names!! And what a cute PC you enclosed as an extra :) Happy Thanksgiving and Merriest of Christmas to you and those you love!!...Charlene
Comment: Thank you for beautiful 3 Kings Christmas card & sweet snowman stickers!!! You are so sweet. I love it when kids are used to illustrate the holidays as on your card.
Thanksgiving blessings, ellie
Comment: Hi! TY for the lovely Christmas card and wishes! You are so sweet! Love the Trivia card and will have to "borrow" the questions for other swaps! What a fun idea! Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Received the Dubai pc today. I have been wanting to join the Christmas pc swaps but haven't had one to trade. Thank you, now I can join (I'd keep this one only I'd love to have a message and stamp) and you've provided me with the means to do so. Thank you so much.
Comment: Thanks for the interesting postcard. I think that I would love to visit Texas but I agree that it may be too hot to live there. I also don't like the cold weather. We do not have snow in Melbourne.
Comment: Thank you...thank you...thank you for the wonderful Moda charm packet!! I love the prints. I also appreciate the coaster instructions, the sticker and the recipe card. I couldn't wait until Christmas to open it!!
Comment: This is so adorable! I love the combination of pretty background cute snowman and mittens. The glitter you added gave it a nice touch, kind of like ice. I think you did a wonderful job on this atc. Thank you. :) The extras are wonderful too!
Comment: Thanks for the extra postcard! Love the vireos - they come to our feeder! So funny you live so near to me! haha! And you mailed it in Canada! Nobody can say we don't get around here at Swap-bot!
Comment: Gail thank you so very much. I love both of my cards and the snowmen. I really needed that today. I'm going thru a lot right at the moment. So you really made my day. It really put a smile on my face. Thank you so very much.
Hugs, Colleen :))))
Comment: Hi! Thanks for the lovely pc! No worries on when the pc was sent - life happens and I would not have noticed if you did not mention it! LOL! Hope all is good with you and yours! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you! There's lots to see out in this world, isn't there? Glad you could travel to South Africa...I would love to travel outside the US one day. I'd like to see Ireland first. Then Greece, Japan, everywhere!
Comment: Hi Gail! Thanks for the darling button ATC -those teeny heart buttons are adorable! I'm kind of new to ATCs too and I think you did a beautiful job! And thanks for the extras - the owl stickers are super cute! (o; Mary

Comment: Thanks! Cute cards â€” kind of like ones I make, so it's good to get ideas to steal : ) The candle smells good and my husband will enjoy the Dots! And I'll enjoy the chocolate! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for your Christmas postcard. I have no idea where you found a Christmas one, I have been searching for them everywhere. I love Christmas Eve too..... something special about the night before the big day!
Response: I bought them years ago and forgot them - just found them among my Christmas Cards.
Comment: Gail, thank you for such a great package ~ what fun. What beautiful papers and I love the cute bookmark. I shall treasure it. Glad to get the mags as well. Never seen the Cricut one before. And oh, the vintage CD, I am so excited and the bling, woohoo! Wish I could give you a bunch of hearts. Thank you so much. What a blessing you've been. Hugs from Ukraine.
Comment: Hi Gail!
Thank you for the nice postcard of the Arch. I have been up in the Arch 3x but wasn't collecting postcards then so it was nice to get one from the site.
I think traveling makes one grateful. That they can go and see different sites and meet different people as well as have a home to come home to.
Happy Thanksgiving and Best Wishes!
Comment: Thank you so much for the die cuts. i have a circut too and I hardly use it. Sometimes its a pain to drag everything out just to cut a couple of things but it FANTASTIC when I actually use it. I need to buy more font things I have like 3. I have not seen the puzzle cutter before, now that sounds really cool!
Comment: Thank you SO much for the socks, they are simply perfect. I love the fair-isle style, the little pads on the soles and the fun pompoms ;) I'm here sitting at my desk, sipping delicious hot chocolate and counting the hours before I can get home and wear my new socks for the evening!
Comment: What a lovely card. I live close to my grand kids so I sympathize that you don't see your enough. I'm sure you cherish each moment you have with them though. God Bless, Hugs and Happy thoughts going out to you......=)
Comment: Just loved it. Fall is my favorite time of the year loved the stamp the beautiful buttons stickers and charms. My granddaughter and i greatly enjoyed a glass of hot cocoa and mint my two favorite flavors the other day when our furnace decided to break. It helped keep us warm! The extra special angel was beautiful and will be hanging in my room and our tree watching over us. Thank you very much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the werther's candy! We love that here but seldom can buy it so it is a wonderful treat to have. Thank you as well for the shiny heart stickers! They were a nice surprise.
Comment: My daughter collects these cows (the small statue version) and we have gone to see them in many places. I juust gave her the graduation cow when she got her bachelorsdegree. thanks so much! Love the card! ;-)
Comment: WOOW....for my first mail swap, I am so glad I got you. The cards are beautiful (my mother's jealous of your talent LOL...she is just starting to learn her cricut machine, and wants to do these things.)
Thank you for the kitty cat book mark. I absolutely love cats <3
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything - tell your Mom she's in for a lot of fun and will be making like a pro in no time!
Comment: I received your journal and have entered my recipes into the book. I have it all ready to send out to the next person. One more week. I can't wait till the book is filled and we get them back. Your book was also designed very nicely.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely card. It actually got to me yesterday but i wasn't in to register it so i do apologise. i'm glad you enjoyed your trip. What;s a square dance convention?
Response: A square dance convention is where people who square dance get together for a few days of dance, dance, dance! My husband and I just got into squaredancing last fall and have been having a great time - great exercise, too!
Comment: Thanks so much for the WI mapcard!! Our son lives north of Chicago and while visiting there last year, we decided to drive up to the WI state line so we could say we've been there! HA!! We stopped at McDonald's on the line, had some ice cream and headed back south again ;^)
Response: Funny, we did the same thing for my parents when we lived in Indian - drove up to the Michigan line so they could by a post card and say they'd been in that state too! They live in Canada.
Comment: Thankyou for the Beautiful Cat FQ's they will go very well in the in the quilt I'm about to start for my sister for her 50th. I also love the Ugly Card I'm sure I will be able to use it.
Response: See, ugly to one is lovely to another! Glad you can use it!
Comment: Thanks. We both loved everything. I'm so glad you put all in a plastic bag. When I got home, my mailbox had opened with wind an it was raining so bad that all was wet, but the bag kept all nice and dry. Thanks
Response: I always use the plastic bags - just in case! Glad it worked.
Comment: Thank you for your postcard and quote! Your card, or at least some of it, arrived in a body bag (a USPS one, so I can't blame Royal Mail this time) but fortunately the quote is still readable and so is your address label. Your quote is new to me, and I like it. :-)
Response: Awww...sorry to hear about that! Mail is never always guaranteed to arrive safely - and I have a sister who works for Canadian Postal!
Comment: Hi Gail, Thanks for the wonderful PC. It's so easy to do just a little something to make someone else's day just a little brighter, isn't it? Good job with the lemonade!!! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Christmas Ornaments, you are right the snowman is my favourite too. They will both be on my xmas tree this year up where our grandaughter can't reach them. She is almost 2 but is very tall for her age.
Comment: Greetings from Ohio, a.k.,a. Cowtown! LOVED your little card with the chorus line of cows! Nope--it's hotter than hades here! We were without power (and ac) for a week due to storms a couple weeks ago. I just run from one AC place to another!!
Comment: Thank you for the card. It's officially the first postcard i've ever received that has cows on it :D
If you ever get the chance to come during tulip time I think you should go for it! The parades are always fun to see ^_^
Comment: Thank you for your lovely quote from Lady Bird Johnson and the gorgeous water wheel. I was in Wisconsin in March and loved how green it was. Sadly I was only passing through on the Amtrak train and could not stay.
