Comment: Thank you Jackie for the touristy postcard you sent to me for the swap! How happy I am to receive a view of the Blue Ridge mtns! Reminds me of my past when I lived in worked in rural west North Carolina, & trips to western Maryland with my family. Great PC for my collection!
Response: You're welcome :). I'm so glad you liked the card. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Love your selection of cards. Would you believe me when I say I have lived in Indiana for 67 years and collected postcards since I was 12 years old and this is the first I have a card of Indiana's state flower!! I love it. It is hard to find cards here except for Amish scenes from the Amish communities. Thanks!!
Response: I am so glad you liked all of them and am glad you finally have the IN state flower now! :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the Missouri postcard! I've never seen a Tornado, but I have been in a Hurricane and a small Earthquake we had here in August 2011. I love Mother Nature in all her glory!
Response: I've never seen a tornado either. I'd be so scared I'd probably faint if I ever saw one :). I was in Hurricane Hugo. My mom said I was 3 at the time but I don't remember anything about it. Thanks for the heart :)
Comment: We've had colder weather here too but have only had about 2 inches of snow last week but it's gone now and don't think we're supposed to get any more foe awhile -- I hope not although I love to look at it, I hate to have to shovel it! Lake Lure looks wonderful - does it get crowded because it looks like it would be a peaceful place to be. Thanks for the great PC and have a wonderful holiday season!
Response: I've never actually been to Lake Lure, but I know some people who have been and it can get pretty crowded in warm weather. :) Thanks for the heart! Have a great Christmas.
Comment: Love the postcards. Where do you buy yours? I have a hard time finding them from North Carolina. Thank you again, Shirley Sorry I had this done quite awhile ago, I just didn't send it.
Response: The closest place I can find postcards is a local pharmacy down the road from where I live. Other than that, I have to travel about an hour up to the mountains to find more. I'm glad you liked the cards I sent. Thanks for the heart :)
Comment: Thanks for the NC cards. I have been there a few times but never for more than a day or two. Would love to take an extended trip and see some of the beautiful sights that I have only seen on PCs and in tour books.
Response: It's a great place to visit and we have a little bit of everything here. Glad you liked the cards. :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: thank you, this is the same card I sent my partner, and it was the last one I had, so thanks for the replacement. LOL. I have realized with this swap that I have very few Arkansas cards. I will have to get some.
Response: That's neat! I'm able you were able to get a copy of it back :). Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the fun white water rafting postcard! We don't have that type of adventures here in Hawaii, but I did go rafting in Virginia one summer. Sadly it was a drought year so we only got a tiny bit of rapids, but it was fun!
Comment: Thanks so much for sending what you were able to with the journal. It did take 4 years, so I can't give you a 5, but I appreciate the journal AND the goodies that you sent me, including the earrings! :)
Response: Thank you so much for being so willing to work with me to get this swap taken care of. I apologize again for it taking so long. I'm glad you liked everything! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful PCs. I love the North Carolina ones - it's such a beautiful state (I have a girlfriend that just moved to Calabash) and the Blue Ridge Pwy is one of the most beautiful drives I've seen! Thanks again, and I'm sure we'll swap again ~
Comment: I love the Blue Ridge Parkway, that is one of my favorite areas to visit. Almost every year, but not this year, we go to TN, NC and GA. This year was FL, then a quick trip to GA. Thanks so much for the great postcard!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful pennies! I love the tiger from the Riverbanks Zoo and especially like the dinosaurer skeleton from the Schiele Museum of Natural History, Gastonia, NC. Great swapper!!
Response: So glad that you like them!! :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Another great PC to go up on my wall in my studio ~ I am fascinated by places like this. . .and I'm sure it is absolutely beautiful up there. Thanks so much for the great PC and for taking me to another place in our wonderful country!!!
Comment: I really like this postcard, I've not been there, but I have been to a few other caverns and I know what you mean about the constant dripping and how dark it is when they turn off the lights! Thanks so much for this great postcard! Enjoyed seeing your name twice today!
Response: I'm glad you liked this one too :D Thank you for the heart.
Comment: I loved it! Your magnet said a lot about your state. And it was especially exciting to receive a magnet from a state with my name on it! Thank you (and also for having invited me to this group!)
Response: so glad you liked it! :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Dear Jackie,
thank you for the nice postcards! Charlotte looks like a beautiful city! I really like the postcard of Freedom Park. Charlotte is also the name of a friend of mine :-)
Best wishes, Ingrid
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful cards. They are just lovely.
I was in Myrtle Beach for a week, and everyone we met, getting there and while we were there were so nice. I really enjoyed it.
Have a great day.
Response: I'm glad you had such a good experience :) Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Hello! Got your card today. So question, with this being a postcard "penpal" swap does that mean we write back and forth to each other on postcards? If so, I need your address if you don't mind. You can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to me here. North Carolina sounds really nice. I watch One Tree Hill. LOL
Response: I think it was up to us if we choose to continue writing to our partner or not. I'd be happy to keep writing with you though :D I'll send you my address in a PM.
Comment: Jackie, we LOVED our souvenir! My son immediately started looking for all his favorite spots on the globe, then spent the rest of the afternoon tossing it around. And the rocks will not only be a wonderful addition to our collection, but the fool's gold will be the perfect bait for the leprechaun trap we're planning (he's been up to a lot of mischief around here lately...). So THANK YOU for the fun swap, and best wishes to you!
Response: Aww, I'm so glad you two enjoyed the package :) I had fun putting it together. What a cute idea for the leprechaun trap! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I spent a lot of my growing up years in the DC area, and my dad was born in Richcreek, VA, so I have spent a lot of time on the Parkway. Thanks for all the memories you brought back, and happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the "Tar Heel Pie" recipe card! I will definitely be trying that recipe! It kinda hits close to home as we have a South Carolina Tar Heels rug in our little boys room which has a "sports" theme. Thank you! :) (oops! I see you're in North Carolina...is it the North Carolina Tar Heels, not the South Carolina Tar Heels?! So sorry if so!)
Comment: Thank you very much for the great postcard. I watched the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday evening. We love hockey here. They are an excellent team. They were playing in Raleigh. Hearts to you and thank you again.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome North Carolina postcard. The cardinal is Ohio's State Bird also, beautiful red color! It is turning cold here also, went from 93 degrees last Friday to 61 Saturday! I love autumn & spring, would rather wear a jacket than be so hot you can't stand it! Take care & thanks again for sharing, Judy
Response: I completely agree about autumn and spring. Love that time of year! I absolutely cannot stand being hot, lol. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: thank you so much for the postcards. my son is stationed in nc and i have asked him to get some postcards from there and so far he hasn't. now i know they have them in nc...:). have a nice week.
Comment: I loved your PC. I had a good friend growing up who was half-Australian, half-North-Carolinian, so to see what it looks like there really meant sthg to me. The buildings are so grand and stately. Thank you.
Comment: Thank you for the cool cards!! I thought I had already rated you or this (they got here Saturday), so I've already sorted and put them away. They're gorgeous!! Next time I just need to pay attention to which ones you've already sent me :P LOL!!
Comment: I LOVE every single one of these cards, and the little business card is a GREAT idea. I am going to print me some for the swaps! Thanks for letting me participate and I hope you do this again, I loved choosing my own cards, Karyn

Response: I'm sure I'll be worn out by the time we get home. She's wanting to cram our days from morning to night, LOL! thanks for the heart!
Comment: Great swap idea! Thanks for letting me in the group and swap! Got your postcards today - I love hot air balloons! Thanks for all the great postcards - I'm at the beach and it takes at least 8 hours to get to your part of the state so I rarely get to go, so I'm glad I got you as a partner - love the pictures!
Response: I'm so glad you liked all of the postcards :) I have TONS more so if you'd ever like to do a private swap, just let me know! I'd love to have some postcards of your area, since, like you said, it's so far away, lol. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful book! I always love private swaps with you because you are helping to complete my list of books from my favorite author!

Response: :D I'm glad I can help you to complete your collection. I was hoping you weren't getting sick of them, LOL. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Thank you so much for my package -- it came today. My favorite is the "Star" ATC -- I like the pattern of the paper with the starts on it and the stars in between those. The one with the giraffe on it is interesting -- the different elements really work together. Thanks again -- you did a nice job.
Response: YAY! I am SO so glad that you liked them. My favorite was the star one, too :) Thanks for the heart!

Comment: I love the postcards you sent me, they're really great. I actually had a couple of business trips to Charlotte, NC like right near the UNC campus at this place that makes CNC machines called Biesse. I stayed at this motel called the Homestead or something like that. I really loved it when I was down there, I think it's a beautiful state!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked all of the cards :) Thanks for the heart.

Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful and thoughtful package! Julian was overjoyed to get mail, thanks for addressing it to him! He loved everything. He had a little comment for each thing! It was too cute. He took the bubbles with him to granpa's house this morning :) He LOVES bubbles! He can't wait to wear his new sunglasses too. The t-shirt was perfect! And of course, the icing on the cake, the pokemon cards DELIGHTED him! Thanks for such a wonderful and thoughtful package for my son!!
Response: I am SO happy that he liked everything. I had a lot of fun putting it together. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I once planned a vacation where we would travel up the Blue Ridge Parkway, but our cat became very sick. We didn't have time to make the trip. Someday I will. I love mountains. The DustCollector
Response: Aww, that stinks that you weren't able to make the trip. I hope you're able to soon, it's gorgeous up there! Thanks for the heart
Comment: Thank you for the pc! It is my dream to live in a cabin in the Blue Ridge mountains...Do you like it up there?
Response: You're welcome! Yes, I do love it up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's beautiful. It doesn't look that great right now though because they are blasting some of the mountains along the main road in order to make another lane on both sides. Tragic. It just looks like another construction zone :(
I'm glad you liked it though and thank you for the heart
