Comment: Oh my what a fabulous goody bag! You went over the top by ensuring a smile on my face. I loved it all including the wrap!!! You must have dug through all your drawers to find all these treasures! Thank you. Hugs and Hearts, Mona
Response: So glad! I know it wasn't a package swap, but I saw your profile & knew I wanted to finally use some of those things!
Comment: Thank you for the list! I absolutely love bob's burgers myself and the office! As for Doctor Who, I've only watched when they brought it back again. And the very first doctor as well. Besides that, I really need to watch the inbetween doctors!
Comment: LOVED your quotes and I'm eager to try the teas. Thanks for sending such a fun envelope to brighten my day! (Also, I appreciate the advice to edit my profile to make it easier to read... I will get to it soon!)
Response: Glad you loved it all. (yeah I've had some mean swappers be agressive about my profile not being 'enough' so I try to nicely help out others before they run into one of the meanies.
Comment: Thank you for this fun package. The wrapping was great! I especially love the cheese knives--so does my cat, but that's because I told her they were for cheese and she had to investigate. She thinks I should buy cheese immediately so we can use them. I told her I'd put it on the grocery list
Comment: Thanks for the awesome turkey card and the Mickey stickers. Love how you addressed it to the M’s. We are 3 j’s together. I love old grays to and am now pissed bc Alex is gone.... I wanted to see the jo/Alex storyline more developed. I cannot stand how it’s changed and I don’t like glasses and his friend.
Comment: Your baby is so cute!!!
No senior dogs are not easy. And it bout killed when i had to put my senior Chihuahua down in nov. We rescued him when he was about 7/8 or more ( best vet could tell due to neglect took alot of work all way round. Poor baby scared of everything. He went totally blind almost yr before we had to put him down. ( dr thinks he had a tumor in the brian that we couldn't have known about and it moved causing a stroke like) we only had him about 7 yrs.
When you take them in like that is when i think they make the best babies.
Comment: Kendall! I just received your amazing envelope today. First of all I love the Calvin and Hobbes envelope you made. Then all the goodies inside are amazing. Anything unicorn is my spirit animal. LOL and I love the postage bookmark and the sticky notes and just everything! You did a fantastic job putting an envelope together for me during this quarantine time. Thank you so much for your time and your generosity I really appreciate it it totally made my day. Hugs, Jill ♥️
Response: So glad you liked it. I was so pumped to have a lot of options from your likes list. Good taste!
Comment: Hi. Love the postcards and the washi tape! The envelope was damaged so I am thinking the button may have fallen out? Thanks for the spongebob stickers too. Love the Disney washi on outsidevof envelope too. Thanks so much. Be safe
Response: Awh, so sorry. It was a 3d button, maybe that's why-when the envelope went through the slots :( it was a girl with a hair bow.
Comment: Kendall I absolutely loved reading more about you and your creativity on writing your letter. Thank you so much. Kudos to fostering and congrats on pg and I hate being quarantined. Hate it bc I am a social creature and this is killing me. I am chatty too and I love ur dogs name. Micah calls me momo not mommy. I had two dogs I adored misty and Kristen who got left behind in a messy divorce and it hurt me to leave them behind but I had to get out fast. All the best to you during this time. Min
Comment: Thank you for my wonderful selection of rainbow items. I loved and enjoyed all of them but I especially loved the crocheted rainbow! How clever!! Did you crochet it? Thank you for joining my Swap!!
Comment: Eee! This is one of the Alice PCs I didn't have!!! All the different Alice PCs I've received over the years are going in a coffee table book for my tiny house as it's going to be Tenniel Alice themed! I love the stickers on the back too! Thanks so much!!
Response: Oh that's awesome! I have so many of them, hopefully in another swap I can impress you again. haha. My house is all Wonderland themed, as are my tattoos, my wedding etc. So people give me non-stop Wonderland stuff.
Comment: Thank you! I love History of Love and Starless Sea is on my tbr eventually list haha, my read folder finally surpassed my tbr on goodreads! I read Bookshop on the Corner and really liked it, I also liked the sequel.
Response: If you need a book penpal...haha.
I didnt like Bookshop in the end, too cheesy not enough development, but try Parnassus on Wheels!
Comment: This is the best swap ever! Most of mine are about work as well. I hope you had a good job interview. I hate coworkers/managers who clearly don't "get" what their job description entails. I'm usually the one at work who fixes everything, although I am the office's dedicated "technology destoryer ". Haha! I hope your job interview went well! :)
Comment: Interesting selection of cards. Thank you. I still haven't found the " bear", but it was an extra anyway. The graduation card is a hoot, considering I just sat through my Grandson's college commencement ceremony. Joy
Comment: I hope you were able to relax on your camping trip and your bread comes out great! I have made homemade bread many times and I think the most important part is to be patient and let it rise. Thanks for the swap!
Comment: I don't even know where to start! Unk is so stinkin cute, your address label is great 😂 and all the cards you sent are wonderful. I like the card you sent for K, it totally works! Thank you for the coloring cards too, I am a LEO and love lions. Thanks for such an awesome envelope!
Comment: Thanks for the great PC and your lists.
I don't watch TV any more (perhaps a documentary or special once a month on average, but no regular TV shows) but I did enjoy Dead Like Me. I have both seasons on DVD and have the movie ordered.
Response: NOOOO. The movie is so awful. It came in my box set; it ruins everything. I worry when people borrow the seasons they won't listen when I say don't watch it-so I got rid of it. haha
Comment: Thank you so much for the tea and your mini letter! Your envelope was gorgeous, especially the mini one you put the letter in! I'm so excited to try the Apple Cider Spice tea! You have good taste, haha!
Comment: Thank you so much for these cool goodies! I absolutely love both of these postcards! The Mutter Museum is one of the top spots on my vacation wishlist!
Response: I was actually a Forensic Scientist in Undergrad; our professor was the Curator, so we got to go a lot. It is work the vacation pit stop! Even though smaller than most museums, the knowledge packed in there is amazing!
Comment: OMG all the Alice in Wonderland stuff! I LOVE the little book! That's going on my computer at work! This was the best mail ever and it came in a TLC envelope from the post office because it got ripped up in their machines! Thank you so much for your generosity!! Really made my day!
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. Sorry I was late in rating you. I love the unique way you did your list. It is so creative. I also enjoyed reading all of your entries. You had an amazing 2018 & it looks like you are on your way to an even better 2019. Thanks for joining my swap & sharing a little part of your life with me :)
Comment: Such a wonderful swap you sent to me! Your life is chock full of beautiful acts every day. A great example of how we all need one another in this world! I love the shoe box of sensory/anxiety relieving goodies idea! I love how you’re a safe haven and silly haven for your students. Best wishes as you march on to the lovely sound of love. Happy Swapping... thank you for everything in your swap❤️❤️❤️
Comment: I really loved the Tinkerbell PC and quote. Just a note that it was hard to read your moniker due to the Post Office usually prints a type of bar code along the lower mid to right bottom. Newer PCs will block off that part but the older ones I have to remind myself its a "no write zone" Sometimes if there is writing and it cannot get through they will put these odd long stickers along the cards and then it gets stuck in multiple Post Office sorting loops.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome mail! I liked your haikus and I appreciate you taking the time to think of them yourself! I love all of the items, especially the cat holding the trout - adorable! Perfect timing for the mason jar labels since I just made sauerkraut and didn't have any labels :) I bet your dogs are adorable!! I love dogs too and have worked with them in the past, but we haven't been able to get one yet with renting. I can't wait to have as many dogs as possible!
Comment: Yelp Review for the B.T.BABBITT'S 99 SOAP. This soap is the best ever created! I use it on my laundry, cleaning the house, and bathing the children! It is also wonderful for the children to play with as blocks and if they have a potty mouth it's handy for that too! 10/10 From Mrs. Soapuser
Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap. I enjoyed looking at what you sent although not entirely sure what folded Disney timeline. I LOVED the calvinn& Hobbs envelope and plan to recycle it into something else fun,😁
Oh, and the Death Valley pc brings back memories. When I was there it was so hot I smelled something burning and looked down to find the rubber soles of my sneaks were melting😅
Response: Glad you figured the papers out. I can send answers if you want a score haha
Comment: Thanks so much for this! I love the separate sections and the postcard by JM Barrie is hilarious and also indicative of - oh, I don't know. Something deep. But mostly hilarious. Haha, kids, it's all your fault, you killed her! To me that's hilarious and evil but in a funny way! Anyway, thanks, this was enjoyable, and thanks for the cute stickers. Oh, and AWESOME envelope! I love C&H.
Comment: You sent such lovely things! I really love the crocheted hairbow and will definitely be wearing it! The charms are beautiful and represent things that I love too, so I am feeling inspired to make a charm bracelet now. I can completely understand your obsession with Wonderland...lately I've felt more and more like we're living there! I really enjoyed getting a taste your aesthetic. Thank you so much!
Response: Ah the hair bow! I used to have super long hair, and I did so much with it. Then my mom cut it all off (it really was an accident. I said layers, she saw a pixie cut photo so she did the drastic swoosh). It was a lot. That hair bow was a gift she got me the day before I lost all my hair, then I could never use it. 10 yrs later I still haven't grown out my hair haha. When I found it I thought this is uniquely me.
Comment: Congrats on getting married!! You could always hyphenate your last name? What are the book quotes you have as tattoos? I hope you're able to find a new job that you like!
Response: My book quotes are obscure one-liner comments from Alice in Wonderland, and the book History of Love. I went off the beaten path from the typical ones and took my favorite hidden lines 'simply impassable', and 'everything'
Comment: Kendall, thank you so much for the envelope of treasures! I love the note papers you included, especially the beach ones with the jellyfish and the Australia ones with the money design on the backs. The notecards are perfect and the paperclips will be great fun for my planner! Thanks for a fun swap!
Comment: This came today (with a pm of 4/7!!!) Thanks so much for the lovely PC...your house and wedding sound amazing! I've been married 19+ years but at my wedding I had a harpist who played songs from Disney as well!
Comment: I got an empty torn up envelope in one of those damage bags from the post office today. :( I'm giving a 5 anyways because I can tell you tried to send something. I hate when the post office messes these things up.
Comment: Yay! I got your beautiful blue shimmery package today. It was like a ray of sunshine and sure cheered me up. The lighted headband is funny, actually could have used that when I was wrapping pipes under the sink. It's hard to hold the flashlight at the same time. It's still leaking, so the headband will come in handy! That hat is really cute. Got a big kick out of the other funny ones, like....Nothing Day and Humiliation Day. Love the coloring post cards and the puzzle book. Thank you for everything! Lots of funðŸ˜Š
Comment: I Love the envelope you created - So pretty - and - all then innards - wowie!! Amazing buncha stuff - Thank you - Thank you !! Love it all. Thanks again for a great send -- Merry Christmas to you
Comment: You rock -- I wish I could give you many more hearts, Kendall! :D I loved the vintage notecard, your list of current favorites/picks; the hilarious, colorful bookmark; the Bob's Burgers Cookbook review (I agree, most weren't earth-shattering, but it was cool to see the pun-ny burgers together in one place; I cracked up at the Cajun burger that used crawfish as "fries"); and amazing The Office book!! That took me way back and reminded me how much I loved that show :) Hope you are having a good week and that our paths cross again soon! Thank you for helping make my day <3
Comment: Kendall, Your fun mail really did brighten my week! Love Love Love that you used the beautiful calendar picture for your envie! I am going to start doing that too! Also, thanks for sending the "Paris" card. I really love it because I love France but also because of the glitter. Your quote is awesome and I'm really glad you found a wonderful dog to adopt. What a great thing to do and it's inspiring how much you already love him. And lastly, thanks for the cool "baking" dimensional stickers you sent. They're so cute. Hope we swap again.Thanks! :)
Comment: Wow! Love the way you addressed the envelope. Great tips from 31 Ways to Challenge Yourself. Thanks for sharing so much with me; I honestly enjoyed reading every bit of it. I wish I was dedicated to going to the gym. Thanks for the stickers and the crossword. I like brain teasers, so this should be fun!
Comment: Quidditch! Thanks for your postcard and lots of HP goodness from quotes to recs on the back! My mom convinced me to read the series as well (didn't like it during the first chapter--those Dursleys are terrible!) but it definitely got better and took over my life! heehee Thanks for the postcard!
Comment: Thank you so much for the notecard. I loved all the extra goodies and quotes. The Alice postcard is going into my private stash for hoarding. hehehehe, Oh and I LOVE all things Harry Potter...you rock!
Comment: LOVED your clues and card!! :) My daughter opened it and she figured it out before me. We both laughed!
This was such a fun and cute swap - thanks for hosting it. Wish more had joined.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!! :)
Comment: Thank you for the postcard and sharing your answer with me. I do work football games at the moment with Concessions at UMD.
Response: Small world. My wonderful bf, Matt Moore works as an area manager with Daniel Kelly and that crew. Know any of them, they're an old school crew phasing out haha.
Ohh or how about Miss Jean Carroll>?!
Comment: Thank you for sharing lovely memories of childhood Halloweens and beyond. I really enjoyed learning about your fun days in the past and more recently. I remember some costumes, certainly getting candy, love Jack O' Lanterns, and loved being scared, all in fun. One year up here, I think it snowed, another, it rained, always cold.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely choices you sent for this swap . . . that panoramic postcard is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and I liked many of the others as well. Fun to open and lots of neat cards to add to my stash (p.s. I'm never sending out the panoramic postcard to ANYONE.)
Comment: Hello from England! Thank you for your book page, it sounds really interesting, I will have to look into it! Thanks for taking the time to send it out to me. I don't mind at all that it was late, and the awesome Harry Potter envelope definitely made up for it! It is seriously the most fabulous envelope I have ever received! Oh, and thank you for the badges, they are so cute, I love them! Have a great day, Jess x
Comment: Wonderful cards! I think the monster is my favorite... though I love the newspaper one... and I have those cats on a set of notecards that are 'too special' to send out, haha, so I know I love them too... Thank you so much!
Comment: fantastic items!!!!! thank you so much!! I could use the stamps for my collection!! :] I already used the ribbon for my niece! she loveeeeees it! and the harry potter PC's ! omg im currently watching harry potter! haha thank you! :] I love everything in the envelope!!! I hope you enjoy this swap!! :}
Comment: I'm so in love with the postcard you sent me. Thank you very much! I love Kiki! =)
Soo...I really enjoyed reading what you wrote on the postcard and I've been reading your profile trying to get a clue to which one of what you wrote is a lie, so I think I will go with either: #5 You're allergic to pickles OR #7 You have a pet pig.
Response: Dun dun dun......it's #5!
Glad you enjoyed it. I tried to put a spin on the facts, make it more interesting to read. but man I got some good cards as well. People are so interesting, I loved this swap
Comment: Love everything about this swap! The packaging was awesome- totally creative and made my boyfriend and I smile as we had JUST seen those veggies for the first time in person. The activities are great too. Love love love! Thank you!!!
Comment: Thank you for all the stickers!! I wish you the best with being a 6th grade teacher! Teachers, who are loving & caring teachers mean the world!!! They can completely change the lives of the children they teach!
Comment: Thanks for the great swap! It finally arrived yesterday! The postmark is old and my po box number is circled so I think it ended up in someone else's box and they finally put in the misdelivered mail box. Always happy to receive an unexpected surprise in my mailbox! I thought it was lost forever :-)
Comment: This is actually a vintage reproduction card, which is fine with me cause I love them. I just wanted to let you know so in the future you dont get zinged in vintage swaps when you send reproductions. I encourage hostess to clarify in their swaps, and you just ask in the comments if you are playing in a vintage swap. Your quote was great, and I would be glad to get you again in a swap.
Response: Thank you so much for still loving the card, and for the advice.
Response: Hi Amanda. I apologize for you not getting anything. I sent you a huge Hello Kitty package. I have photo proof from my blog. I will happily send you out a replacement package tomorrow. I do wish you messaged me privately first regarding the matter. It's less painful than seeing a 1 on my profile when I do have proof of mailing, as well as we could have cleared this up politely well before the 3 & 1 ratings were even open. Can you please message me your address.
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome envelope filled with those very cool super hero postcards! I love them so much! Plus, your note was really nice. I also met Chuck Palahniuk in Boston when he was touring for Lullaby. He's so amazing! Thanks again! -Michelle
Comment: OMG - I'm sorry - I was just looking at the cute stuff you sent again and realized I had not rated. I loved it all and showed my son the small little air mail card/envie - and Coney Island cards are AWESOME.
Thanks so much !
Comment: i hope i didn't forget the quote on the cards i sent out. thank you for the harry potter. he is so young in this pc. oh and i love spiders. they eat eat bugs and look really cool just floating in space
Comment: Thank you for the five postcards! That's fine that you sent me five random out of state cards! :D I wouldn't have minded if you'd sent me five from your area, but thank you for sending me cool different ones, instead! I aadore the cute one from the National Zoo! Everywhere you sent me I have not yet visited, so it was neat to get all of them! I really appreciated the Statue of Liberty card as well. Thank you!!!
Comment: hurrah for the great postcard
& fascinating application of
anthropology ... with luck, you can
help us all figure out how to get along
with each other or maybe just avoid
too much more stress & strife in life?
good luck & keep up the fun snailies
[i imagine our old postcards & letters
might just well be scrutinized with
puzzlement by the next generations?}
Comment: Thanks for the comments!
If you ever want to start making bottle caps: I somethimes host altered bottle cap swaps for beginners. Just let me know if you are interested and I will email you when I have a new swap. :)
Response: Once I'm done with this school semester I'll get into the more crafty stuff. I'll keep you in mind!
Comment: Hi Kendall, Yes, it is a small world. Thanks for the sweet valentines. Thanks for the song suggestions. I got to hear Chuck P. speak once at the National Press Club, and was also quite impressed. He speaks so well & is very funny. Take care ;)
Comment: what a beautiful photo - makes me want to go to Venice! And I how do you play Quidditch?
Response: We play on pvc pipes at practice but we have real brooms we hold with one hand. Beaters have no clubs we throw dodgeballs. Chasers play w. a slightly deflated volleyball. Snitch is a person with a velcro hanging ball attached to the back of their shorts that a seeker has to pull. It's fun : )
Comment: "The beginning is the most important part of the work"
"All the effort in the world won't matter if you're not inspired"
These are so right :) This year i try not only be inspired , but do smth in reality, not as usual in my mind :D
Comment: (Just lost a looong comment. Take II!) Belated thanks for your interesting answers which I'm just in the middle of rereading now. I think I put down that my freak talent was recognising actors in the background, or playing minor characters, and being able to list what other movies I've seen them in. Some are in old films and they went on to become famous and others didn't. Part of the 'talent' is being able to recognise people from 50 yrs or so ago when they looked completely different to how they look now. I love how much it spins my husband out when I do it! So I really related to your similar talent for knowing everyone's (actors') names. :)
Comment: you are a very generous young lady! i am having a hard time right now due to an accident last week, and you have no idea how your card and gifts brightened my day. i am sending you a friend request. thank you for all the good advice and for the prayer. i thank God for you. :)
Comment: Please remember to write the name of the swap as well as your username on any swaps you send!! Also, the card you sent should have been just a picture of the capitol building. It doesn't matter if it was from my own state! :) I just don't want to give you a bad rating since you're a newbie!
Response: Oh. Thank you! I didn't know you are supposed to write the name and the usernames. It makes sense now. Sorry.
