Comment: Hi Janina, thank you for the beautiful Christmas card and teas, i love it. In Brazil, the Christmas decoration is the same as the USA, but without the snow hahaha...We have the Christmas dinner (with delicious foods) and the gift exchange happens in the same way as in Germany.
PS: your trip to Japan must have been awsome. Japanese food made in Brazil is very different from the original hahaha
Feliz natal e ano novo!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I received your BOX of goodies today! I intended to wait to unwrap them since they were so beautifully done but after 6 long hours, I caved and .....I am thrilled with ALL the items you sent! Such a lot and I am truly sorry the first batch was lost. If you sent as much as this, then I can understand why the envelope burst open! ♥️♥️♥️A very merry Christmas to you!
Response: I hope my new package will arrive soon! Please let me know <3
Comment: Wowwweeee! My cats went CRAZY over the package you sent to me!! I could barely open it they were laying all over it and biting the box! I’ve never seen them act that way before! And the mouse for the treats is ADORABLE!!! Thank you for this awesome experience and for the adorable note. Very grateful to be your partner! Many hearts to you!
Response: Thank youuu! I was SO excited to receive your rating. I really wished you would like it. <3
Comment: Hi, Janina! Thank you for such an amazing box of goodies! We are enjoying all the snacks and treats that you included for us. One of the eggs was broken but that is ok. :) We especially enjoyed the nougat, the wafers with chocolate in the middle, and the chocolates with alcohol in them. I will be replying to your email this week! :) Thank you for the delicious treats!
Comment: Hi, Janina! Thank you so much for all the amazing goodies you sent! I love it all. It was a joy to open up and share the Kinder Egg with my husband. He use to receive them from his great aunt when he was younger so this was wonderful to experience again! If you would like to be swap partners again or pen pal, let me know! I would be happy to.
Response: I'm so happy you liked everything I've sent to you. I'd love to swap with you again!
Comment: <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 It's arrived ... and we are so excited for December! You have taken so much care - it looks so brilliant :) We loved reading about all the "help" your cats gave you <3 So creative. THANK YOU <3
Response: I hope everything is safe and that you'll like the "inside". Let me know :-)
Comment: Thank you for the teas! I don't usually like fruit teas but I look forward to trying them. Oh, and a private swap would be fun! I don't have a lot of Christmas supplies (actually: none) but general stationery would be possible.
Comment: hi Janina, thanks for the PC. <3 Your city is so beautiful!
Allow me to explain what otaku and yaoi are:
Otaku is generally used to describe people who prefer immersing themselves in fictional narratives like those in video games, novels or manga over having conventional social life like partying or going out with friends. There are some other otaku who're interested in non-narrative related hobbies like railway, weapons or military stuff. Usually an otaku knows so many details his/her thing that outsiders sometimes couldn't understand what otakus are talking about at all.
Yaoi is the Japanese equivalent to M-M romance plus bromance, but there was a time that yaoi was more versatile than this definition. Now it's basically related to either romantic or friendly relationships among guys (while the target readers are mostly females).
And yes let's do another swap around Christmas!
Response: Thanks for taking time and explaining! <3
I think I got it now. :-) I'm really looking forward to our next swap!
Comment: Thank you Janina. The area you live in looks lovely. I liked your comment and it brought a smile to my face that when you write postcards you have your two cats beside you. That sounds good. Happy swapping.
Comment: OHHH MY - I wish I could rate you a 10! I was so happy (we don't receive mail on Mondays, but I opened it anyway and found your HUGE envelope because it was sent by package courier!) and I really like everything you've put in it. I actually do really like colouring pages, but these mandalas are new to me! And the colouring pencils are so cute! My swap also included a mask because that's just so relaxing, isn't it? Actually, I would like to send you a small envelope with some letter/crafting paper and tea if that's alright with you? I'd like to thank you for such a great swap! Please DM me your address if you're interested :) (As I'm the host of this swap I do have access to your address, but I don't want to send you unexpected mail!)
Response: Thanks again for your awesome and kind comment. And also I have to thank you again for your reply letter that has just reached me.
I'm soo glad you've seen how much effort I've put into this. :-) And to make someone happy was exactly what I've wanted to reach! Hope we'll stay in contact!
Comment: hi Janina! I didn't know we're partners before we're doing private swap! Such a surprise this morning when I checked my mailbox. ^_^ I happen to read a little German and can read the card! It's so exciting. <3
Response: Really? That's so funny. :D I thought you may have checked. I hope my touristy card will arrive soon. I'm really nervos about that. :-) Have a wonderful weekend! <3
Comment: Hi Janina,
Thank you for your cute little lamb postcard! I have the same set of animal postcards :)
Yes, it's a tradition to build a high stack of wood and old Christmas trees and burn it with new year's Eve :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the generous and thoughtful package of chocolates. The two chocolates are now my new favorites. Thank you.
The package arrived torn and in a bag from the postal service, but everything in the package arrived intact.
Response: I'm so glad it arrived intact. â¤ï¸ We can do a private swap if you like to :-)
Comment: Wonderful envelope! The chocolate really made it through! :) can't wait to try (sadly has to wait right now ;-))) the Disney things are absolutely wonderful for "the kids", thanks for the paper and washi! -- Thanks for our swap, hope my envelope will arrive asap too.
Comment: Thanks, Janina!^^
It's a very cute card image of dog listening to music. Also, I spied an image of tiger on the printed postage. Interesting!^^
Our summer weather is somewhat mad. It's hot, humid and rainy. The hot breeze infrequently joins, and adds to further outdoor misery! This natural 'sauna' isn't enjoyable at all... *lol*
Response: I'm glad your postcad has finally arrived and that you like it! I hope weather gets enjoyable soon!
It's pretty cold in Germany right now, no summer feeling at all!
Comment: Was fÃ¼r eine super Karte - nicht nur "Keep Calm" sondern auch noch Minions!! Vielen Dank, das ist eine der besten Karten, die ich je bekommen habe :) Ich leide eher bei 37Â°C, das Wetter jetzt bekommt mir viel besser.... und Regen stÃ¶rt mich eigentlich nicht :)
Response: Freut mich sehr, dass sie Dir gefallen hat. â¤ï¸ Ich liebe die Minions auch ( wie man schwer erknenn kann :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely selection of lip balms - they were PERFECT. The Baby Lips one is one I have been wanting to try for a while but never got around to buying yet (I love it, it smells and tastes super yummy), the cocoa one smells amazing (fun coincidence .- I bought a cocoa bean satchel to hang in my wardrobe just the other day because I love that smell :)) and the Kaufmann's seems to be just what I have been looking for so I can have a handy size lip balm in my bag that I can use on my son also. So this was a very perfect package. :D
Response: I'm sooo glad that you like my selection! Thank you so much! It really makes me happy! I'm cocoa addicted too! :-) Have a nice day!
Comment: The first one didn't reach me so thank you for sending out another one! Your babies are so adorable! So great that they are getting along, our family cats are never seen cuddling. Sometimes they will sleep together on the same bed, but no more than that. And you are so right, cats are such great company! Thank you for sharing!
Response: Aww thank you so much :) this was so much fun!
Comment: Thank you, Janina!
This postcard of the squirrels is SO cute! my 12 year old daughter's favourite animal is the squirrel so she is quite tickled to see this one!
I would LOVE to swap with you so I will send you a message!
Have a great week!
Response: Thank you so much!
I'm really looking forward to that :-)
I love squirrels too! They are so funny and cute! Have a great day :-)
Comment: I adore the dog postcard!!!!!! It is the cutest thing!! And I love the stamps you used also! I have no idea who Felix is, but he's adorable. Haha. I love girlie shows also, don't worry! Haha. And I hope you do get to visit here someday. If you like beaches, you'd love it here! Haha. :)
Response: Thank you so much :-) This was so much fun! Have a great week!
Comment: Agree, it seems to be many cat people here. LOL. Mine are both 11. (Not Brother and sister.) Just regular street-mix. I Will say the same as an other here wrote, I am owned by 2 cats...ðŸ˜Š Thank You for Your cute card!
Response: That's just the way it is, we are just tin openers :-)
Comment: Thanks so much for the postcard Janina! I love the stamp too. :) How funny that you wanted to be called Rachel as a child.I think you have a much more interesting name! I had a girl in my class with almost the exact same full name as me, it was so annoying!
Response: Thank you for rating me :) Had a lot of fun sending that postcard to you!
