Comment: Dear Marlies, What a fun package I got from you! I love everything you included - great Halloween die cuts, ribbons, vintage library card, TH ephemera, and I really love the little stamped words you then stitched around - what a great idea and I can't wait to make some of my own. Thank you so much for a terrific swap!!
Response: thank you for your comments! i am so glad you were happy with this assortment! thank you for the hearty rating!
Comment: Hi Marlies! What a special ATC! I love the witch you used as your focal point--she looks like she might be a children's illustration (which I love), the coordinating papers, and the amazing way you used the web at the top of the piece--really clever! Also crazy for that orage glittery star at the top. She's bewitching!
Response: so glad you enjoyed the 1950's witch! i appreciate your comments - thank you for your hearty rating!
Comment: Thanks Marlies for the selection of ATCs you sent me. I did find some that I can hold on to and not let go...lol. The Happiness is like a butterfly is so adorable. Also, thanks for the envie. I can’t decide to keep the envie intact or cut out all the great variety of used postage stamps that’s on it...lol. Greatly appreciated!
Comment: That stuff was so cute!!! That’s cool we share the same initial!!! I like everything !!! Little did you know I want to make a mermaid journal AND I LOVE masquerade masks!!! Thank you for everything!
Comment: I love this vintage ad image of the sweet peas and morning glories. I missed out on growing sweet peas this year, but my morning glories are twining up their trellis! Nice vintage postage, too.
Response: glad you like it! i love morning glories too!! thank you for the hearty rating!
Comment: Ah, Marlies, such a delightfully thoughtful swap! Enjoyed your typewritten note (if it's a typewriter font please don't burst my bubble). I scaled down ruthlessly when I last moved & miss my vintage Royal. Love the B&W real photo pc, but the young Elizabeth & Margaret, the French sugar poster & the vintage FL flamingos also tickle my fancy. And to top it all off you add a packet of stamps & cigar labels. Lucky me! Thank you so much.
Response: it was fun to hand pick these postcards for you! so glad you like them! thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Christmas card. I had to laugh at myself, as I quickly glanced at the back and thought "wow she wrote a long letter" after a second look I realized it was the same word over and over again 😂.
Have yourself a very Merry Christmas and the best to you in the New Year.
Comment: Your card made my day! I am very familiar with Elora! In the downtown square is a farmer's market my mom sold clothing at when I was young. Nearby was also a top notch ice cream parlor I would always get the best bubble gum ice cream at! Thank you so much for the card and the lovely memories it brought back!
Response: what are the chances you have been to this small town? i love your story!
Comment: Hi Marlies,
Sorry... I got distracted while rating the swap. I never knew of French olive oil. As soon as I saw your PC I googled it, which lead me to Amazon to purchase a couple varieties. I'm back now.
Thank You for the lovely and interesting PC.
Response: what a great comment! i have been in the south of france, but not during the olive oil producing season.. i guess it is awesome, as all the oils sold taste very different from each other. chefs from around the world show up to taste and enjoy them! hope you enjoy yours!!
Comment: Hi Marlies,
Thanks for the nice card. It makes me remember when my girls were young and liked to dance and spin. Whenever shopping for a dress or skirt, they had to assess "Twirl Value".
Best to You,
Comment: Hi Marlies, You made my day! The ATC you made is my mantra for this past 2 years. Since I started graduate school I have to keep telling myself to BELIEVE. I am 59 years old and I'm struggling in school but I know I can do it. Thank you so much.
Response: thank you for your comment! you made my day, too. best of luck in your studies!!
Comment: Thank you for the Las Vegas card. We used to go every couple of years but I haven't been there in over 10 years. I would love to go back and see all the changes that have been made since then. There were several major changes just starting on the strip the last time.
