Comment: Hi Ciska! Received your happy Spring Mail art today - thx so much. I love your theme of Spring and how you incorporated the scavenger hunt items - blends very well. Thx also for the extras! See you around the post box - Tama
Response: What a joy to make this envie for you. Glad you like it. Thanks for your rating and look forward to swapping again ❤️
Comment: Hi Ciska! Wow, these envelopes are all great. I love the patterns on both sides very much. We get Flow magazine & the books of papers at my bookstore, and they’re all of unique patterns. So much fun to cut up & make things with. It’s a joy to swap with you, I liked your note, & the Lovely floral envie these arrived in. Take care & have fun :)
Response: Thank you for your kind words. It was a joy to make these envies for you. Finding nice patterned paper and making envies out of these gives me so much joy.
Comment: Cask, Thank you so much for all the cool envelopes. I will enjoy sending my pen pal letters in those - they will be so special! Thank you and I hope you are also enjoying your Summer and staying safe, darla
Response: Enjoy using them! Thank you for your rating. ❤️
Comment: You definitely had a lovely week - thank you for sharing all the happy things! : ) I love how you wrote it out on the little cards. So creative.

And thank you for so many pretty summer goodies!!!

Response: Thank you and for your postcard! Have a lovely August. 💕
Comment: Thank you so very much for a fabulous swap! I love everything (strawberry-envelopes), but I am thrilled about the [email protected] stickers. I cannot see me parting with them :) :)
Thanks for joining my swap! I like small theme-swaps. If you have a wish-theme for a similar swap, then just send me a PM. If I find something in your theme, I will host a swap in the group then!
Response: Making this swap was soooo much fun. I love these small theme swaps as well. And Strawberries are so yummie 😋. Have a lovely August 💕
Comment: Thank you so much for your fabulous MailArt and your very international note :) I just love everything! Years ago when we traveled to Vlissingen, I have seen Flow in the store (now you get it worldwide). Of course I bought it, but did not unterstand that much. But what an inspiration! That was my goal: to read this magazine :) Years later I am reading - very slowly though - Harry Potter en de Vuurbeker :) Have a lovely May!
Response: Thank you for your rating ❤️. I am glad you like all of what I’ve sent you. So cool that you are reading Harry Potter en de Vuurbeker in Dutch. I read my last German book for German classes at high school...long long time ago. Have a lovely May 💕
Comment: Thanks for these wonderful Flow Paper envies! I am starting with tomatoes and already have blossoms on my strawberry plans out in the greenhouse! We have been seeing lots of deer in the village just lately, after not seeing any all winter. We will be moving out to our spring, summer, fall house, shortly...delayed due to weather and having to replace the running line to moor our boat. Hope all is well with you! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Hello Ciska and thank you for brightening my day ( hail showers and snow ) with your lovely springtime swap! I will be sure to use all of it.. the pretty papers, tags, envies, bugs :0)

Response: Thank you for your kind words. I am so glad that my bundle of green brightened your day. I hope spring will arrive soon. Have a lovely May💕
Comment: Im really grateful for the package you sent me. What I loved was how the criss-cross po let folder and the contents were more or less along the same theme (and I absolutely loved it). Thank you soooooooo much. It made my day. 💕💕
Response: You’re so welcome. It was a joy to make this pocket folder for you. Thank you for rating ❤️.
Comment: What a beautiful envelope, Ciska! Just perfect. I love the washi tape but most of all I loved your note (on poodle paper!). Thank you so much!!! You’ll get mail from me soon! XOXO
Response: It is always such a joy to make mail for you. Didn’t realise it was a poodle on the writing paper...otherwise I would have sent it without my handwriting on it... thank you for your rating ❤️. Happy Velentine’s day❤️
Comment: Than you so much for the beautiful envelope and the goodies inside! It really brightened my day :) The washi and stickers are so pretty. I will be putting them to good use soon. Happy Valentine's Day <3 <3

Comment: Ik heb hem vandaag ontvangen, hartstikke leuk! Ik ben benieuwd naar de theetjes, en ga de goodies zeker gebruiken. Ben heel blij met de die-cuts. Ook dank voor de leuke brief! Wij zijn even de stad in geweest met Koningsdag, maar ook niet veel bijzonders.

Comment: Dank je wel voor je warme pakketje. Heerlijk geurende thee en andere gezellig dingetjes. Ik heb een stansmal voor het maken van een Zweeds paardje, daar kan ik de washitape met de Zweedse vlag goed bij gebruiken. Ik ben er blij mee!

Comment: Thanks for your cats! Nice to hear you found a new hobby with this :) Yes, I draw a lot, but to be honest I haven't much recently. I always try to draw more - but then I have weeks of a creative down in between.
Looking forward to round 2!
Comment: You are so right, that is a full PC...I will have to think about it for awhile =o) Thank you too for the lovely PC's and for sharing a piece of your home view with me, I think it must be a lot like living in the flat middle of my country. Thank you, the envie is beautiful too =o)
It's SO beautiful!!! Oh my goodness, I just love it so much and to be perfectly honest, when I opened it, I cried!!! It just blew me away and I love each and every pocket! You put so much time and effort into this and it shows. I will cherish this forever! It's been put with my very prized possessions and that's where it will always stay. Thank you, Ciska, you truly touched my heart and soul. xoxox Patty
Response: Thank you. It is the most beautiful thing to touch someone so deeply with what I made. Thank you! ðŸ’Œ
Comment: Oh happy day, your lovely envelope arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I very much enjoyed your letter and goodies - especially the loving touch you added to each presentation of the items. Everything thing is so colorful & fun. Our pen friend journey begins. :)
Response: So glad you like what I sent you. Look forward to get to know you. Have a lovely weekend.
Comment: Thanks Ciska for the work titled Girl On Fire. I personally relate to Madonna and we close in age. Lived within a couple of blocks of where she grew up in Michigan. Subbed at her high school and loved the quote you sent over. "A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That's why they don't get what they want. " That is pretty true in what i have asked for and what i have seen others live out too. Thanks!!
Response: What a coincidence! I love this quote too. Thanks for rating. ðŸ’ƒ
Comment: Making the ATC must have been very time consuming with so many little circles and dots.It is so pretty. I love it and I love the book pages. Can't wait to use them.Thank you so very much.
Response: This was so much fun! There are so many ways to make circles. This swap gave me a lot of inspiration for things to do with circles and dots. Thanks for the rating. Have fun with the book pages.
Comment: Hi Ciska. I look forward to working on your gentle and peaceful PC. Thank you very much for the chatty note and for reading my profile. Thank you too for the unexpected and delightful stickers =o)
Response: Thanks for the rating. I am so curious how this PC will turn out. Have fun adding your things to it.
Comment: What a creative envelope you made me; yes, it made me smile. I enjoyed your nice letter (and song), and oh what fun to receive some washi tapes & tea. You made my mailbox and me very happy today. P.S. I'm glad you've enjoyed my swaps. :)
Response: Thanks for your rating and heart, and Thanks for organizing this fun swapðŸðŸŒˆ
Comment: I'm so sorry I didn't rate you don't know how I could of missed this one, your swap was packed with all kinds of happy, thanks so much. Your the only one who has sent coffee. I want to drink it so bad but it's to cute! Thanks for all the interesting things and glad your holiday is over now. I would love to swap again with you.
Response: So glad that it has arrived. I got worried it was lost. I had so much fun when putting together the coffee package. Glad you like it. I am always in for a private swap.
Comment: Thank you for joining my swap! I really loved the letter--it gave me a good insight into your life. I too, wish I stopped trying to follow the crowd and be like everyone else. It's important to be yourself no matter what people think.
Response: It was such a wonderful swap. It really gave me a new view on that time in my life. Thanks so much for the swap and for the rating.
Comment: Dank je wel, zo leuk om in het nederlands iets te ontvangen!
Thank you, it's much fun to receive dutch mail. Your enveloppes are cute and I like the stickers and tea. I feel the same about creativity in our jobfield and creativity in general. Hope to swap with you again.
Response: Fijn dat je de envelopjes leuk vindt. Ik ben altijd in voor een 'private swap'.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful card! Yes, my father's ancestors came from Holland in the 1800's and I have a Dutch name. I have researched what town they came from in Friesland and am planning a trip in the next few years to see where they came from.
Response: It must be exciting to plan such a trip. Friesland is lovely, lots of water and lots of cute old towns.
