Comment: so elegant and beautiful...love this technique...the glittery window panes almost like a kaleidoscope..when you move the card they make new designs...great idea...thanks also for the note...and i'll be using that dictionary page...just a nice nice swap...
Comment: Neea, This is the BEST swap I've ever received. Every single thing you sent is exactly what I wanted. I love the book pages, especially the botanical ones, and the post cards are beautiful. Rest assured each piece will find its perfect place in my crafting. Oh, and my husband and I really liked the chocolate bar!!! Thank you for everything!
Comment: Thank you SOoOO much Neea! I am simply in love with this adorable JEM ATC!! It has went directly to my page of favorites in my album! You are and A+ artist!! Would gladly swap with you again :) anytime!
Comment: Neea! Thank you sooooo much for this incredible swap! I really can't with everything you sent and how carefully you chose each item. I wish I could give a hundred hearts! You even wrapped the things in dictionary pages! Thank you for all the cute Moomin items, the pretty celestial things, the Sailor Moon and crystal stickers, the shaped paper clips, all the postcards and stickers, the holographic pouch and just everything!! I love every single thing!!! Daaaankeeeee! Also loved the jokes hehe! (And sorry for having such a long name hehe oops :p)
Comment: Loved your story! :) Maybe we should start a club - 'No one knows how to spell or pronounce my name'! I accidentally added my daughter to that club, her name is Annika, and it seems no one knows how to pronounce it, either, and it has about 5 different spellings! Did not think of that, just thought the name was pretty! I have known a few Elena's though - always loved that name. :) Thanks for sharing your story!
Comment: Wow, wow, wow! 😍 I'm at a loss for words. Absolutely love everything! Especially the moomin/sami bookmark. I'm working on learning sami myself, so I'm going to look and see if I find the same moomin book in sami and Norwegian so I can compare the languages as I read ^^ love this swap series, and looking forward to the next one :D
Comment: OMG! Just got your swap yesterday after a looooong wait...and I've already eaten half of the food, I LOVE everything you sent me!!!!! It was so delicious and super happy you are my partner in the first place because I LOVE finland. Thank you
Comment: Kiitos kivasta paketista! Täällä on jonkin verran Fazerin juttuja myytävänä, mutta sä osasit valita ne joita ei oo :) Suffeleita on ollut ikävä <3 Paketti oli musta kans tosi nätti ja postimerkit kivoja!
Comment: Thank you, Neea for the nice vintage card that waltzed into my mailbox today! I love collecting and sending old cards (and photos) too. I hope you have a gentle (but not boring) winter and a beautiful spring ahead--with lots of good swapping!
Comment: I got your letter today. The stationary and stickers were so fun. My son checked the mail and instantly fell in love with what he saw, so of course, he had to open it. And even though he can't read it fluently, because he's five, he is insisting that it's his. So you made two people happy!! Your stories were great. 16 children. I can't even imagine!!!! Thank you for the great swap and for hosting!
Comment: Hello, thank you so much for swapping with me! I am as I already wrote you excited to try the tea you sent me. If you are interested in doing another swap I would be happy. Have an amazing day!
Comment: Neea! You're swap finally arrived! What an incredibly beautiful envelope! And super fun stamp. I am going to use your lovely envelope in my pen pal display at work (with your info covered of course). Thank you for the stickers at well. :)
Comment: I have had the privilege of swapping with you for a few swaps now and you always manage to awe me with your work. Thank you for the two very lovely ATC's you created for this swap. It is always enjoyable to swap with you Neea :)
I <3 Jane Austen too .
Comment: Thanks for your lists.
Most of your 'year you were born' list was familiar to me as I was in my latter thirties and very much into music. Your current favorites list gives me some artists I'm not familiar with to listen to.
Comment: I'm not sure if there was a real nature element incorporated or not but I'm still giving a 5 even if there's not because this was SUPER super cute and I loved the presentation and envelope and everything. Thank you ❤
Comment: I simply love everything from the stickers down to the envelope (such pretty tapes!). You certainly considered my likes while choosing the sheets. They're all super. I especially like the fishies (Ihania nää kalat 🐠). Thank you so much. You send the best swaps!
Comment: (Happy to rcv this around your postal strikes... hope good things came of them!) Love the penguin postcard! And "all the parks along the Willamette River" wow, pretty ambitious! (how long are you staying?!) :) The parks in Eugene are def my favorites tho! TaRaRin, yep, awesome place to eat. And the Cascade Raptor Center is amazing in so many different ways.
Thanks so much for hosting... I love to visit my own city thru other people's wanderings on google. It's nice to be reminded of the cool local things!
Comment: LISTEN! OPENING THAT CUTE ENVELOPE KILLED ME BECAUSE HOOOHHMMYGOD IM NOT SMART BUT 😭 Thank you for the envelope, the stickers, and the post card with your flowers!! I'm still not over how cute everything was 😢💜
Comment: Thank you for the fun package. Can't wait to try the teas and the little pouch is so cute. I haven't done any sewing for a long time. Also thank you for hosting this swap. It's the kind I really enjoy. Thanks again.
Comment: Thank you for these postcards! Each one is VERY special and amazing! I especially like the 70s looking one though, because it has a womb chair on it - we had womb chairs at my college library! Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you for the yummy looking chocolate bar! I am a huge fan of chocolate with a soft hazelnut filling so I can't wait to try this one. I'm going to save it for one of my cosy evenings where I snuggle under blankets and have candles on and ignore how cold and dark it is outside ;-)
I love your packages - the Finnish stamps on them are always lovely :-)
Comment: Oh my god!!! Thank you so much! The journal is beautiful, I love world maps! And I also like the way your decorated the whole package. Thank you so so so much, I'm so excited and happy about this prompt journal, this is one of the best things I've received in a swap <3
Comment: ohh my gosh I just got your package today thank you so very much. typing while sampling lol . I needed a smile just sprained both ankles one on Friday and other on Saturday (sad face) Thank you again
Comment: I love the name of this candy lol, it's so dang cute!!
i ate these candies in class, i love the animals and the coins & gems. lol the orange sticks were gross and the black things almost made me throw up haha.
anyways, thanks for the new experience !
Comment: Heii kiitos suloisesta kortistasi, tämä tuli jo maanantaina, mutta laitoin heti tuohon seinälleni, kun tämä sivusto jumittelee ja nyt vasta muistin ratingin. Nytkään ei tartu tuo sydän :( kokeilen myöhemmin lisätä sen.
(En tiedä tiesitkö, että käyttämäsi merkki on markka-ajalta :D )
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful selection of new postcards! Not only were they nicely wrapped but also in excellent quality and condition which I very much appreciate. The sleepy puppy is my new favorite PC!
Comment: Thanks for your Finnish postcard and the teas. The northern European countries are in my heart. I visited Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden in 1968 with my parents. I was 9 years old. In a small car with a tent. 9.000 km in 4,5 weeks...............
Later on with my husband and our children we went to Sweden a couple of times. They also loved it!
Comment: Dear Neea, thank you so much for a fantastic bunch of stickers!! I don't know how to use some of them! LOL! You need to PM me and tell me how to use the translucent ones please... All of them are beautiful!! And many!! Thank you so much for your generosity! ♥ Edited: I forgot to mention how pretty the envie was and how clever to attach the bag to the envelope, it arrived firm and with no wrinkles! ♥
Comment: Thank you soooo much for the envie of assorted goodies. I loved everything you included especially the papers and the vintage cut outs. I don't use postcards much but I absolutely adore the map postcards you included. 😘💕
Comment: Beautiful postcards and washi and super clever way to hide the tea bag (this time I was lucky the package wasn't caught by customs but I do have in my profile a reference to please not sending anything edible nor even a tea bag because it usually turns into a nightmare). Thank you for a lovely swap (I will re purpose the wrapping paper ♥)
Comment: Thank u for the cute card! :)
I googled the artist.. what nice things she makes! I'll send a link to my husband (he's an art teacher) how cool would it be if he could use any of it in one of his lessons!
Comment: Such gorgeous mail art!! The packaging is so beautiful and delicate. I almost didn't want to open it.such a wonderfulqay of mailing washi sampless! AND stunning washi! Thank you so very much!💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
Comment: I'm sorry it took me so long to rate but I loved your trip ideas. I've never been to Pictured Rocks, BUT I can speak to how wonderful it is to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts - it's in my neighborhood!. I hope you get to visit someday. It's one of my favorite places of all time. XOXO
Comment: Just noticed that I hadn't archived this swap and obviously forgot to rate you although I marked the swap received in my spreadsheet. So sorry for being some days late with my rating. Thanks a lot!
Comment: Ihan super iso kiitos aivan mahtavasta paketista! Tosi ihania juttuja ja erityisesti postikortit ja herkkutarrat oli superhienoja ja washiteippejä mahtava valikoima! Myös kasvomaski menee heti testiin ja nuo Fazerin pääsiäisherkut, joita en oo aiemmin nähnykään! :D <3
Comment: Thanks for the very good lookin' zine and the great mail! Your anger reasons match up with mine...I totally relate to being totally pissed when someone hangs up on me midsentence. I've exploded about it so many times!! Thanks for being patient while your mail got to me, it was worth the wait!!
Comment: OMG!! I so love Moomins and so happy to receive them from you. It is so difficult to find anything related to Moomins here so I am really glad you sent them to me. Thanks so much for the wonderful package!! I would give you infinity hearts if I could!! Thanks again!!!
Comment: Hey, fellow murderino! :D I listened to In the Dark, too. Have you listened to Someone Knows Something? It was recommend by the MFM ladies a couple of times, and I think you might like it as well, is not far from In the Dark :)
Comment: Thanks for your thoughts. :) Some audio books are a bit, well, boring, but some I really love. If you're a fan of Agatha Christie, I would recommend the BBC radio drama renditions. (in English, at least). They are very exciting. :) I'm new to podcasts, and keep seeing "My Favorite Murder" on everyone's lists! I might have to look for it. I think my husband listened to "Small Town Murder" he's more of a fan of true crime than I am. But I have just started one called "Stuff You Missed in History Class" - wonder if it's the same one? :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)
Comment: Congratulations, you did all 200 questions! Didn't seem like "too many" until I was 'only' at #80. haha. :) I've glanced through your notebook, but haven't read them ALL yet. Loved the washi tape you used on the envelope, too! :)
Comment: Thanks for your great letter. :) I have read "Da Vinci Code", but I think I liked the movie better. Is that strange? I actually have read or listened to all in that series. I'm a fan of Sarah Waters, have read all her books so far (Though, The Little Stranger is my favorite I think) My hubby is a true crime fan, and so we listened to "I'll Be Gone in the Dark" and it was good, but the ending seemed sloppy. I know McNamara died before she finished it, so maybe that is the cause. But I'm not familiar with others on your list. My TBR may be growing now! And I loved your thought about books being new in each new language you read them!
Comment: I loved this very full envelope! I'm about to eat all the candy right now! I appreciate the teas and washi. That stationary is just adorable! The tea Bigelow is actually made in the state I live in, it is only about 50 mins away from me! Again, it was just lovely to receive!<3 Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you very much for the stationaries! I heard about LaPapiere before, but I found it a little bit expensive right now :( I'm still a student, so I cannot really afford buying writing papers every month for 10 USD, but maybe when I will start working, I'll start ordering some papers! :)
Comment: Thanks for the post card showing The Tower and Tower Bridge. Perhaps you are due another trip to London! Amongst other things i studied classical Greek at university. When I went to Greece just afterwards i had little idea what they were talking about and they didn't understand me! Best wishes
Comment: Oh my, this is one of the best swaps I ever received on swapbot! I just love how you used your creativity, your style is amazing and so delicate. Reading your letter was such a pleasure and I truly hope you will finish writing your book, please do. Thank you so much for a beautiful and thoughtful swap.
Response: Aww, I'm so happy to hear that! Thank you. ♡♡♡
Comment: Thank you for some lovely washi! I’m sure the bookmark will be fine. If you are ever unsure, you can cover the item you are using to put the washi on with clear packing tape. It works really well!! Thank you!!
Comment: Hello Neea -- thanks for the very wintry card of snow-covered trees! It is snowing here today, and already I'm hoping for summer again. I would love to visit Finland someday -- I love to hike. All the best, al
Comment: Kiitos ihanasta pikku paketista! Piristi myös suuresti, kun huomasin kuoressa sun osoitteen, että oot Klaukkalasta. Ollaan puolison kanssa sieltä päin kateltu taloja, jos tässä lähitulevaisuudessa muuttais sinne päin. :D Tuli vaan entistä enemmän muuttokuume! Mielenkiinnosta kävin lukemassa myös sun swap-bot profiilia (koska jee vau harvinaista et suomalainen swappipari :D) ja dislikelistan (ja muutaman muunkin kohan perusteella) perusteella kuulostat niin multa että alkoi ihan hymyilyttämään. :DD Kiitos siis päivän piristyksestä! x)
Comment: Thank you so much for the stamps :) I love them so much! And I'm glad to see a fellow FML/Utena/Doraemon fan on Swap-bot, by the way I love reading your dislike list lol I could relate. Happy holiday!
Comment: Thanks for the great zine.
I read your profile (looking for a clue as to why those two languages) and I loved it. I like straight-forward, honest and to the point.
I have put you on my "to read" list, without a title, so let me know if you publish under a pen-name.
Give Waldo a scratch behind the ear for me.
Comment: Hello Neea all the way from Finland! Thank you for the cute princess postcard, your handwriting is crazy neat! I love it! I hope one day you can find the Little Mermaid and finally watch it! It's one of the classics that you have to see! But I know how hard it is to find the DVDs sometimes, they need to be released from the "Disney vault" sometimes :) happy swapping keep enjoying swap bot!
Comment: Thank you Neea for all the great stamped images, funny you are the first to send stamped images I already have. I have the great stamps of the vintage shoe and hand...BUT... I don't have foreign book pages to stamp them on so worked out perfect! And I love the green dictionary page that's going to be put to good use! Thanks for this very nice swap.
Comment: Terrific selection of postage stamps enclosed in a pretty great wrapper of, not a dictionary, maybe a thesaurus or verb tense or noun list? The envelope was wonderful, too, especially the great stamps. Loved the winter mailbox scene - even the little birdie has a winter cap!
