Comment: I loved your envelope!! That "Johnny Canuk" stamp was funny! Never heard of him. haha Thanks so much for the cool postcards as well. Numbers are surging here in Nevada too. I keep waiting for the governor to issue a stay at home order...but so far he hasn't. Take care!!
Comment: Thank you for the nice variety of tags you sent The tree one with the bulbs is fun! Also, love the card it came in. That would be something I would send to my BFF as she is the dog person. No snow, just rain and more rain. At least one does not have to shovel it!
Comment: Hi Carol 👋 what a great L. M. Montgomery book cover, thank you. I loved the Anne of Green Gables books 📚 as a girl, and I wanted to BE her. Thanks for your cheery note too. 😸
I can’t believe (but can) you’ve had snow ❄️ already. Take care :)
Response: Hello - yes, we are pretty much past fall here, sadly! So glad you liked your card....cheers!
Comment: Hi Carol, thanks for this great selection of PCs, & for the extra. I like all of them, but especially the Rhino - Thank You! I also really enjoyed your cheery chatty note. I hope you’re getting happy mail that makes you smile too. Take care & have Fun :)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome postcards!
Canada, House, Retro and wierd or strange. I find it pretty cool that the house postcard is in your provence. Have agreat day, stay healthy and happy swapping!
Comment: That's a nice vintage-style bicycle postcard. So nice to read that you love bicycling and can still get out and about. It's a wonderful form of exercise and transportation. I hope you get to enjoy as much of autumn as possible on your bike. Thank you cariboocarol.
Response: You are very welcome - had a cold week last week but it is looking better for the weekend!
Comment: You are such a generous lady! Thank you for the wonderful items that I can tell you picked based on my profile :) The two owl postcards are so pretty and the handmade envelope from Graphic45 paperwork I will be incorporating into a future journal I will be makin. Thank you so much for everything!
Comment: I love the 2 pocket letters that you made for me! I like the colours you used for them and the themes were fun too :) Thank you for the two large decorated envelopes too...they will be the perfect size for most swaps that I do.
Comment: Hello! I found this little package, unopened, amongst my craft papers. One of my kids must have delivered it to my craft area and it got swallowed up. Thank you for such wonderful goodies to craft with. Take care and be safe!
Response: Hi - so glad you did receive it as I was sure it was lost!! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool postcard and history of Winnie the Pooh. My favorite character also is Eeyore and I have on my Eeyore shirt today. My hubby hates this shirt and I always thought he didn't like Eeyore. He told me about a month ago that it's not the character, it's that I wear it so much. Well, the shirt is only about 10 years old. There's a lot of life left in it. I got it at Walmart on sale for $5. "Great Value!" LOL!
Response: That is such a funny story - I hope you keep wearing it! I have clothes that are 10 years old too. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Wonderful postcards you picked for me! You must have a great collection as you always send me cool postcards. My favourite is the extra Special Event one for Jane Austen's wedding....my Mom saw it and has claimed it! Lol.
Response: Does she want some more? I bought 2 sets and cannot seem to ever find a profile who would like them!
Comment: Wow! Thank you for everything! The envelope is great with the awesome postage stamps and fox washi tape. Love the Alice stickers and the cake postcard. That fuzzy chick sticker reminds me of ones I had growing up, so cute. Definitely brightened up my day.
Response: So glad to read your comments - you are very welcome!
Comment: I love the stickers you sent for this swap....and it all came in a cute file folder too! The giant mushroom sticker is probably my favourite one....no clue what I am going to do with it yet but it will be used on just the right project :) Thank you for sharing samples of your new fun washi too! We don't have strawberries here yet but no snow anymore...at least not where I am. It is so crazy to think that you are still in thick of winter there.
Response: You are very welcome. I was beginning to worry that it did not make it through the postal machines! That folder was from another swap, I did not make it but she sent several and I thought they were cute too. She has a diecut machine that makes all kinds of fancy things!!
Comment: Thank you very much Carol for the lovely note, stickers and postcards that you enclosed in the nice St Patrick's Day card. The Anne Of Green Gables postcard is fabulous. Love the assortment of postage used on the envelope too :)
Response: So glad you liked everything and that it arrived before the 17th.
Comment: Thank you so much, my language nerd self was so happy with your card! So many languages, and it being from the new millennium makes it feel even more special. My native language is actually the third one in the card, right after English and French 😁 Also so cool that you've been to SK! Where did you camp? My street pretty much crosses the whole city so I don't live downtown, but I do live right across the river from it 😊
Response: Aw, very glad you liked it - we camped around Moose Jaw and North Battleford. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Carol, Thank you for the lovely long note and the goodies that arrived this morning! The reading postcards and the bookmarks are great and I appreciate the extra vintage cards. I'm particularly intrigued by the black and white photo of Piccadilly Circus. I've been trying to date the picture (I moved to London in 1969). I think it's possibly 1950s -- no military uniforms in sight so post-war but I don't remember flower-sellers in the 60s/70s. Fun to puzzle over, anyway!
Response: Hi! So glad you liked everything! Yes, I agree it might be 50s or 60s—I was hoping you would find it fun...I think those photo cards are a rarity now. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Not sure I should give a 5 since my profile states that I prefer my PCs in an envelope. Disappointing
Response: I am so very sorry you are disappointed. I will resend you a blank postcard . I do not mind at all. I must have misinterpreted your profile as I thought you meant you were fine either way. I really did read your profile. Please accept my apology and I will pop another in the mail on Monday.
Comment: Hi Carol! Thank you for everything you sent - I love it and appreciate all the extras. The stamps on your envelope are amazing!! The blue whale is my favorite. I love my library too and it’s great you get out and meet up with people so much. I wish I had some fun groups to join here! Thanks so much for joining my swap! I hope we swap again soon!!!!! : )
Response: Thanks so much for your kind comments and the rating!
Comment: Thank you for your postcard showing raspberries. We too have them growing wild, though so vastly, that in some places they take a lot of room. But they are good and pretty and make the best cakes with whipped cream!
Response: I agree with you on the cake and whipped cream!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Carol! Thank you for the lovely mail! The samples didn't fall off the envelope and they reached in a good condition. Thanks for the lovely samples too. I hope the weather is getting better now :)
Response: Thanks for letting me know as I was getting concerned that it was lost or stuck onto something else! Ha! It actually did not take even a month to reach you so that is pretty good....considering the distance.
Comment: I just love the postcards you've picked for the swap! The gnome is definately going up in my craft room...he is the best :) Thank you for the extra cards for my collection and the book page as well...I will be making some tags and such this weekend so that page will be used soon.
Response: So glad hear that Crystal!! Yes, I ordered the other set of gnomes this week as I liked them too.
Comment: Thank you do much for the sunflower postcard. you made my day. like you this is my first time in postcard roulette. I probably wont get any extra pc's as a lot of people dont like sending international mail , only within their own country. As for the Aussie fires i was in Australia in Dec/Jan and fortunately not near the fires.
And yes we have had smoke from the fires come across the ocean. happy swapping .
Response: You are very welcome - I have not received any card yet but do not expect an extra either - but I will cross my fingers for you!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I also love the stamps that you used :) Also, i'm not really brilliant for doing my master's at this age. I'm just trying to escape adulting and paying taxes wahaha
Response: Well, good for you anyway!! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi Carol What a lovely swap. I just love tea towels and items for card making. The things you sent for cards are new to me - I have not seen these before. Your pocket letter is really cute. I hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Response: I am so glad it arrived as I was sure it had been stolen from your door! I was going to resend something else tomorrow!! Anyway, I hope you can use them!
Comment: I love these Russian cards, esp. one I consider oldest with horse drawn carts.I also like Nashua card. I have a fondness for Russian people, literature, and the country itself. Thank you.

Response: You are welcome, Sherry! The mail gets to you so quickly from my place!
Comment: Thank you for the great card and note. I never had a car in school. But I would have loved the to have the one my Dad had which was a 57 Chevy 4door sport sedan. I think I was as upset as he was when he was involved in an accident with it in '64 and they totalled it.
Response: Aw, sorry to hear that. It would be worth a lot now! Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you very much for the very generous super fun filled envelope, each item suits me so well. It was great to receive a long newsy letter, I had a lovely birthday thanks. Awsome postage stamps on the envelope I was born in the year of the pig! I hope the weekend ahead is a good one for you :)
Response: I am really glad you liked the swap! Yes, weather is very favorable for the weekend! Yay! 😀
Comment: I sent a quail postcard to my partner too!! Love this postcard!! Somehow it got to me without postage too!! Ha ha!! When I lived in Arizona my friend and I saved a bunch of baby quail and took them to a rescue. They were SO tiny, peeping like crazy. Adorable. Wishing you a great week and thank you for joining the swap! : )
Response: What?? No stamp??? So sorry about that---it must be a first as I always get my mail hand cancelled by the postal clerks and they should have noticed that!! Glad it got there and I am amazed it did, yes, those quail are small....
Comment: Thank you for the great variety and quality postcards! Love the pc of your town and even where your house is. (This is my favorite type of postcard!!). I very much enjoyed reading your nice note too.🎫💚

Comment: Carol, thank you so very much for for the lovely assortment of stickers! Especially enjoyed the special ones you selected from my profile likes. I was thrilled with even the stamp on your envelope of Queen Elizabeth II . I’ve wanted a stamp with her on it! YAY!!!!
Response: So happy you liked them. I have messaged you regarding the private swap. ❤️
Comment: Thank you so much for the great art cards plus the extra one. Also for using such a pretty stamp. Danke!
We had a sunny second half of February but now it is cooler and stormy. Waiting for real spring also the birds say it already is every morning.
Response: You are very welcome! Spring is fnally on its way here too!
Comment: Thank you very much Carol, I was born in the year of the pig so I loved the postage stamp you used on the envelope, thank you very much for that and for the lovely St Patricks Day card, the nice long letter, the interesting postcards and the fun stickers:)
Response: i was very happy to send them to you--your profile was so well outlined, It was a pleasure to have you as a swap partner!😀😀
Comment: Thanks for the pretty birdie envie and all the birdie goodies! I love birds and we have lots of eagles, 1 raven, crows, magpies and, I am hoping, that all the small birds will come back, after the die off this last fall. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are welcome! I got mail from you today as well! WE are lucky here to have a huge variety of birds all year long.
Comment: This was indeed the happyest of mail, I love the easter bunny shiffing a flower. the good night kittys and the tiny odd rabbit stickers you sent me. Thank you so much for this swap it arrived on a day when I very much needed me some happy mail, if you would ever want to swap again. Please let me know.
Response: So happy you liked the items!! Thank you for the rating and remarks!
Comment: Oh my goodness, I love all the postcards you sent! I love getting all these Canadian ones too! The one of Mt. Abraham is beautiful! I never heard of this beautiful mountain. Thank you so very very much!
Comment: Thank you very much for the resend, I appreciate your efforts to send it for the second time since the original swap unfortunately got lost. I love Christmas card and extra postcards. That's so nice of you! I also like the stamps on the envelope ;) I can't wait spring too! Have a nice day :)
Response: Wow, that arrived fast!! Thanks so much for the rating and for bearing with me over this swap! I appreciate it.
Comment: Wow, you Canadians have great year of the pig stamps! I shouldn't be surprised; my husband used to collect Canada Post so I know they're great stamps historically. :^) Thanks for the fun postcard!
Response: You are so welcome! I wish we had more stamp issues per year than we do....but I liked the pig too!😀
Comment: Thank you so much for this gorgeous swap, I loved it! The ATC is beautiful, I never make them but love receiving them!! The sweet stickers are adorable and the cards and postcards are amazing as well! I'm glad this made it right on time, hope you have a happy Valentine's Day! UPDATE: I was so sure I had given you a heart and now I see I didn't! You totally deserved it, so here it is!! Thanks for this great swap!
Response: I am also glad it arrived on time!! Thanks for your rating and comments!♥️
Thank you so mucH!!!
Comment: Thank you for this awesome swap! I liked the envie you decorated, the letter, and great postcards! I enjoy your swaps! The Hockey games would be fun! My sons love to watch and play a tiny bit of ice hockey. This year the ponds have only froze a little bit.
Response: That is too funny that we each got mail from each other on the same day but different swaps!! So happy you liked the cards....😀
Comment: Thank you for a lovely journal (and I love the extras)! My family and I have been to Ontario and Quebec several times, but have never made it further west. You definitely made me want to take that journey!! :)
Response: So happy to hear you liked it!! Thank you for the nice rating!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely post card. I also like paintings in this style. The women have a kind of innocence. Hope that the polar vortex is weakening. They keep promising us snow but although I can see it on the distant hills it hasn't put in an appearance here yet. Best wishes Sandra
Response: You are very welcome! Stay warm! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for your postcard with Father Christmas in a donkey cart. Believe it or not we do still get donkey carts in our more rural areas so if someone here got the idea to drive his donkey cart dressed like this at Christmas, I wouldn't be too surprised!
Response: That would be a funny scene! This card was taken during the town's summer parade, I believe. Anyway, glad it got there!!
Comment: Carol, this is the loveliest bunch of magpie goodies I've ever received! SO thoughtful! LOVE all the kitties and postcards and unique papers. I can't wait to incorporate them into my MJ's. Thank you so very much for putting together such a great bundle of goodies.
Response: Aw, so glad you can use the items! Happy New Year!!
Comment: Hi Carol. Thank you for the package that arrived today. I really do like everything that you sent. Yes, I do have a preference for PCs sent naked, because I like postmarks. But it's certainly not a hard & fast rule. PS: It's 40deg c. (104deg f) here in Merredin today!!! I bet there aren't too many people in Eckville, Canada who know that!
Response: Haha! No, probably only one person ---me! It is only -11 here today so pretty mild for us too! Glad the envelope got there, will send naked from now on!
Comment: Thanks for all the wonderful things you sent. (I had to go diving back into the envie to find the dragonfly) LOL! We are back to having no snow with rain instead. Merry Christmas with hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I am glad it made its way to you! Best wishes! Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Alphonse Mucha postcard; I love it! I got to see an exhibit of his artwork over this past summer, and I just fell in love with it all,
The protests are mainly on the Champs-Elysées, so I am a good distance away from it all. This past Saturday wasn't near as bad as it has been, so I am hoping that it is all winding down! As an expat I really like Macron, so I was surprised by the sudden outburst of protests as well. I can understand the concerns of the protestors, but some of the demands, like completely eliminating homeslessness, are simply not feasible regardless of what country you live in. We'll see how it all plays out. Thank you again, and Merry Christmas to you as well!
Response: So glad you liked the card and also that things have quietened down there---now all the news is centred on the US!
Comment: Hi Carol -- thanks for the card. I too had a plastic raincoat -- it makes me sweaty just to remember it, haha. I'm throwing your paper scraps in the mail this weekend -- sorry for delay, last week or so was nutty busy. Happy holidays! Best, al
Response: Thank you so much --- yes, I hesitated to comment that it brought sweaty reminisences to me as well!
Comment: Thank you for the animal card- the bunnies loved it and cheery note- I have never read them either but Bill has worn out copies, it's his favorite so hopefully you do enjoy. Have a lovely Christmas!
Response: Thank you for the heart rating!! Best wishes!
Comment: Thanks for joining. We had the Holy Fire but thankfully we were further south than the evacuation lines. We had friends who needed to evacuate come and stay with us and my brothers family and his in law's had to leave as well. Thankfully there was only a thick covering of ash and some fire retardant on all their properties. Much to be grateful for.
Response: That is good news for you and your family. Thanks for rating!
Comment: Hi Carol, thank you for the fantastic Magpie Journal! I loved looking through the journal and learning more about your life. I especially appreciated the goodies tucked inside and that you had a lot of dog themed items both in the Magpie Journal and on the envelope. I especially loved the playing cards you shared with me - what an amazing collection! I wish you a Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2019! Annabelle xoxoxo
Response: I am so happy you were pleased with it-- I loved gathering the bits and pieces....Happy New Year to you too!!
Comment: Thank you so very much Carol, it was nice to have you as a partner again after so many months have gone by. I do not seem to get to swap bot much anymore these days as life has been interesting and I have been struggling to stay healthy. I do not know why it is such a struggle at this stage of my life. Anyway thank you for the awesome Halloween items...they were fun to get at Christmas time!
Response: I really hope you feel better and the New Year brings you much happiness! Thanks for the rating,
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and wishes :) I love these cute kitties. Yes, my name is our (Polish) version of "Agnes". I'm still waiting for snow. I live near the Baltic Sea and we we have a slightly warmer climate than in the north of the country, in the mountains. A lot of snow has already fallen there. Canadian Post works normally now :) I asked about it on Monday at the post office. Merry Christmas!
Response: You are very welcome! Lots of backlogged mail here but hopefully all will be delivered eventually. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hello Carol, thank you for the many bookmarks and your thoughtfull card! :D Also the red envelope really make my Christmas heart beat haha (I should probably get some red envies for my swaps too......hmm) Happy November! Happy swapping! <3
Response: Thank you for your comments! I do not ship to your country very often so was not sure how long it would take.. i think I am getting flaked on this swap as my partner has been suspended....but we shall see...
Comment: Thanks for this gorgeous Foxy card! I love that you visited Alaska! We used to go camping up by a placer mine, by Denali. I love running water, and electricity! Nothing like being away from it for a while to make you really appreciate it! We have not had snow yet, but we have had temps in the 20's F, so it is coming. Merry Christmas with Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are so welcome! Thsnks for your comments and rating!
Comment: Carol, I absolutely love the things you've sent to me. You've put so much effort in this swap and read my profile so carefully. This was a special package to me! I feel so sorry that my wrapped gifts now belong to someone else. :-D I will resend and I hope you'll like your swap too! Regards xxx
Response: Aw, I am glad you liked the parcel and I am also sorry that the one you sent to me has ended up elsewhere. Take care of yourself this week!!
Comment: Thank you for everything, gingerbread ornament, pretty card, Santa buttons, and all the rest. It is supposed to begin snowing in an hour, maybe 5 inches tonight and a little tomorrow. I cancelled bridge for tomorrow.
Response: You are very welcome.....we are alsbo under a snow warning
Comment: Hi Carol-
Thank you for the cute cards. I agree, fewer and fewer of my friends are sending cards these days. I miss the good ole days when I would get 30 or 40 cards in the mail. So much fun to hear from everyone.
Response: Thank you for the rating , Jane! Hope you receive lots of nice cards this Christmas season!!
Comment: Thank you for the "4" cards. Canadian mail is arriving faster and faster! Snow! OMG please keep it for a while yet. We have not had any snow at all. In fact, it is so hot now, in the mid 80's, we have our air conditioning still on. (in the state of Michigan). Have a beautiful October.
Response: Glad they arrived in good time! Yes, we still have snow!
Comment: WOW! Thank you so so much for this envelope full of wonders! I absolutely love the well thought out selection of postcards (which are way more than I would expect). I've never received such a wonderful package. I love the stamps, stickers and notecard as well! I gave one of the postcards to my girlfriend sinche she opened the package with me, so not to worry about not sending her something. She appreciated the thought. Thanks a million for making my day ^^
Response: So glad it made you happy and it didn't really take that long to arrive either, bonus!
Comment: I loved the pinwheels on the card, so cheerful. Thank you for the post cards as well. Our AC has been pumping since May. We'll be in Palm springs next week and the daily average will be 108°. At least I'll appreciate home more when we get back! Happy birthday!
Response: Thanks for the heart....have a lovely time there!!
Comment: Oh this was just awesome! Thank you so very much for all that you sent. I had to lol at your note....I do definitely stay busy, but I also make sure to make time to work on my art and craft projects otherwise my soul would just not be happy!
Response: You are very welcome! Thanks for the comment and rating!
Comment: Wow! What a joy it was to open your sweet, thoughtful package today. The pocket letter is beautiful! This swap is the first time I have ever made one and I see many more ahead. They are so much fun. Your nice note and all the extra goodies were so thoughtful. A bit of relaxation with some hot tea and wonderful incense is EXACTLY what I need today. Thank you so very much for such a special swap. All the best to you.

Response: Thanks for the rating and for letting me know---so glad they arrived!
Comment: Thank you very much for the Valentine card and extra's. I saw the stickers on the envelope and I guess you also love the magazine 'Daphnie's diary" :)

I miss it already. My sons will be home American Christmas. One is in the army in California and one is a teacher in Indianapolis. Orthodox Christmas is the 7th of January and we will spend it with my parents in Chicago. God bless you and have a wonderful new year. Marina.

Response: You are very welcome! Merry Christmas and thanks for the heart rating!
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful card and extras. Like you, my DH and I do not do gifts. Rather we buy what we need when we need it. Good luck with the dinner! KISS ( keep it simple ) always works well.
Response: Thank you for the tips and the rating!!!
Comment: WOW! Carol, I'm in love with the pc's you sent my way to fulfill this swap. The bears crossing the road in my absolute favorite with that pretty swan a close second! Thank you for choosing so thoughtfully.

Response: Thank you for the rating! Glad you liked it!
Comment: Thank you for the penguin ATC! I do most of my shopping online when it comes to Christmas. I also don't enjoy the hustle and bustle of the crowds. As for the weather here in California, one would think it is summer time. The weather was 93 degrees on Thanksgiving! Crazy!!
Response: Hi! We even got above freezing this weekend too! Not like summer though....thanks for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful BIRD picket letter! It was so cool that you decorated both sides with birds, too.i do LOVE all the bird postage used, especially the chickens, roosters and swans. It was so sweet of you to include goodies in the pockets as well! What a super treat. I enjoyed reading your note, live the quilt card! Thanks also for there personalized selection of postcards, too! They are such a treat!! You really spoiled me today! You had ypur DUCKS in a row and really FLEW above and beyobd on this NEST EGG of a swap! Thanks again! Many hearts!
Response: So very happy you are pleased with the swap!!! I appreciate all your kind words too.
Comment: Yahoooo, I am finally getting to open cards and I just opened yours With the deer in front - and just to let you know I did open the little cute one first. They are so beautiful and I can understand why they would remind you of the xLikely/Barkerville area, we've been to both places. We used to live on the other side of Williams Lake in Alexis Creek, then McBride, then McKenzie and finally ended up in Prince George. I also love the bleeding heart postcard, I've never seen one before and they bring back fond memories. Thank you for adding to the special time
Response: Yes, sorry I did not write it on the outside but I really dont mind if you dont rate until after you open it! Thank you ....I am opening mine but keeping them in the envelopes until Dec.
Comment: opened your Beautiful Christmas card today and I'm glad I did, not only is it a pretty card but it had Xmas washi in it and I was running out ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ Thank you. I love the bull, thank you. My husband also works for the provincial government, I want to say both work in the same area? We met a lady in Amsterdam who son wrecked for the PG newspaper and my husband knows him. Everyplace we have traveled we have met up with people who know people we know, it makes a person realize just how small the world is. It looking like it will be just Bruce and I this year for Christmas. I think we should sneak off someplace personally and have a little fun-Las Vegas sounds good ðŸ˜€. Merry Christmas to you guys as well.
Response: No, we have lots of snow from this past week...another card is on its way to you too!
Comment: Loved your note and all the wonderful PC'S you sent especially the Black & White ones. I collect them. And good luck with your Junk Journal. I really love making them. Have a great day. bearnbabs
Response: So happy you liked them!! Thanks for the rating!!
Comment: Thanks for all the cool vintage style stuff! It didn't snow yet where I am, in fact it's kinda hot these past few days XD. Wait tea is not allowed as flat mail??? I've been doing that all the time and I've been fine XD. I live in an overpopulated suburb and there's waaaaaaves of kids coming by on Halloween. My parents are going to go broke!

Comment: It seems like I keep on getting the same partner again and again for Canadian swaps haha. I loved that washi tape with the deer and postcard theme, where did you buy it?!?! That notebook paper you used to write your note was also really my style. I can't wait to try the tea, thank you for a great swap!
Comment: <3 Guess what I got!....lol! I absolutely love it!! I cant wait to use those postcards too! You have a great variety of cards, and from all over too! that's pretty neat! I would love to do this swap again in the future! I am glad you enjoyed it too :)
Response: Yes, I loved it as well but will send fewer postcards next time and more journal cards....I really did like this one!!
Comment: Hi Carol ~ I like **everything** you put into my envelope! I know what you mean about it being hard sometimes as to what to put in when you'd like to put more. :o)... been there! I like the tea cup stamps on the back of the envelope, too. â™¥ thank you â™¥
Response: If I send to you again in a swap, I will try to remember to send some stamps for you as well....
Comment: I loved everything you sent, particularly the parrot stickers and the flower notecard! Figuring out ATCs definitely takes a while - sometimes it's just really hard to fit everything into the tiny space....it's a lot of fun too! If you're interested in doing more ATC swaps, you could check out ATCsforall.com -it's a swap site just for ATCs!
Response: Thank you so much for the comments, referral and rating.....will check it out!
Comment: Thank you for the goodies you sent me! I too enjoy these types of swaps as you get such little selection of things...not just all of one thing. I really like the cute puffy butterfly stickers, they will be perfect for an upcoming project! And the postcard of the Glacier Skywalk is great...I lived in Jasper for a number of years and left I believe it was a year a two before they built it so I never had the opportunity to visit it. Have a great rest of your summer!
Response: So happy I was able to swap with you---thank you for the heart rating!!

Response: So glad it arrived! Thank you for the nice comments and rating!!
Comment: Hi Carol. I do love pocket letters, and they're probably my favorite thing to make and send through the mail, though I did make a flipbook recently and LOVED it. It was very sweet of you to make something special for me. It's so pretty, too! Thank you. â™¥ I hope you enjoy your summer and your camping trips. :)
Response: Glad it arrived! Thanks for the nice rating!
Comment: I couldn't wait till my birthday to open your card! Thank you so much for the birthday card and WONDERFUL postcards! They are pretty awesome! Those stickers you included are pretty weird - in a good way - too! Thanks so much! Hope you have a good birthday when it comes!
Response: I am glad you opened it and liked the swap! Thanks for the kind rating.
Comment: Oh my gosh!! I LOVE this pocket letter!! It is so cute, and the goodies are the best! I love the moose keychain! I am so jealous that you have moose in your backyard. We get them rarely... but we have plenty of black bears! Thank you for all this bright and cheery goodness, I love it so much. :)
Response: So glad it arrived and that you liked it!! Thank you for the rating!!
Comment: Hi Carol! I know I have already rated you, but some of my swap ratings have disappeared. This site has a lot of technical issues! So... I want to thank you (again!) for the fabulous Strawberry ATCs you sent me!! I love them both! If you keep up this type of work, EVERYONE will want to swap with you â˜º. I am lucky to be one of your first.. The card you sent them in is wonderful too. I've never seen that company...Wild Things for cards! Thank you for the goodies!! Everything was perfect for the swap!!
Response: Wow, thank you so much for your lovely comments---I seem to be missing a lot of ratings and I did not know why!! As for the ATC, I feel I am not as "artsy" as many others as I do not use a lot of different mediums but I will keep practising!
Comment: @Cariboocarol, thank you so much for a stunning collection of Postcards. I cannot pick one!!! Degas is one of my favorite painters â™¥... All of them full of color and meaning... Great swap!
Ps... Thank you for the sweet note and the extras.
Response: You are so welcome!! Glad they arrived and you liked them.
Comment: I love your package! My favorite part besides of the journal was the clip on earrings. I collect clip ons :) They are always so pretty. Your journal was lovely too. The page about post crossing was fascinating. I've heard of it before but am not familiar :) Thank you so much; hope you have a lovely spring.
Response: Thank you for the rating! So glad it arrived....and that you liked it. Postcrossing is a lot of fun and actually fits in nicely with swap bot because of all the postcard exchanges. If you need any info, just message me!!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postallove postcard. I love everything they create =D. I am so glad you got the friendship books I sent you and that you have someone to swap them with. My Father would often quote a poem he was taught in school when snow slowly started melting. He died a long time ago but I would like to share a part of his spring with you..."Listen said the pussy willow I can hear a brook, Spring is here let us all take a look" Happy Spring =D.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute note cards and fun stickers. I hope spring is springing for you, lol its still snow all around here, too! and more to come, I am told - ACK. hugs and thanks again for a super cute swap. P.S. LOVE the envie!!! It has a KITTEH on it!
Response: Thank you for the knd words and nice ratIng!!
Comment: Thank you for your beautiful PC. I once took a train along the Fraser Valley and across to Calgary. Our Mountains are so beautiful ! I would have loved to experienced your life even for a month while you lived out there you are so fortunate to have had that opportunity. I love the vintage postage stamps you used please tell me how you are able to get them.
