Comment: Hi... On 13 Dec you mentioned in your PM that you will resend swap. It's Feb now and I have not got the swap till date. Really sorry to rate you a 1. Will rerate when I receive swap. Hope you understand...
Comment: Sorry for such a late rating! I am going through all my swaps to ensure I have rated correctly (basically looking for flakers) so when I had not rated you I checked my junk mail, and it was in there!
Comment: Hey Jessica! Thanks so much for my letter. I received it today with much delight. The New Hampshire magnet is now up on my magnet board- I've always wanted to travel all over America and it serves as a reminder of that dream! I enjoyed reading your letter and I'll be sure to write back soon xx
Comment: Re-Rating this swap to a 3 as i finally received it - thank you ! It was sent very late though beginning of December so that is why i have only given a 3 rating x
Response: i clicked sent because they were ready to be sent and where sitting at the house i put them in a backpack and bring them to the post office to send off but i had to leave the state due family issues and they had been sitting at my house i just returned home monday and they are on the way sorry for the inconvience this is my first time being late on my swaps since i joined :(
Comment: I am truly sorry for your family situation, Jessica. I hope things improve for you in 2012. This swap is rated a 3 because it was sent late and the papers arrived creased due to poor packaging (you really can't use a piece of cardboard smaller than the lettersets - the papers just wrap around the cardboard in transit). And please don't hit the "sent" button on swaps until it's actually in the mail. That only causes confusion and suspicion. :/
Response: It was clicked sent because it was in a shopping bag ready to be sent but i received the call and had to leave asap thats why it was marked sent sorry for the inconvience! thanks for the 3!
Comment: Thank you, I received the swap today! I am rating a 3 because I didn't receive the swap within the given time. I understand family emergencies, but don't understand being told a swap had been sent several times when it hadn't been.
Response: it was sent out a while ago but due to the snow storm we just had it slowed our mail i need to post that on my profile when we have bad storms it pretty much slows everyone down here! thanks for the 3 and happy holidays!
Comment: I loved this!! :) i would love to be penpals with you so i will be writing back to you next weekend...I got tons of school work for college this coming week!! gave a heart because I loved how you did it. It was gonna be how I did mine!! :)
Response: im glad you liked it and i cant wait to hear back from you! i just finished midterms3 weeks ago and now im finally writing back to all my penpals, i always write back though! cant wait to hear from you! happy holidays!
Comment: Thank you! What a great story & great postcard! Got any room in your cabin for me?! ;)
Response: we have 3 rooms with bunk beds plus a family cottage like 20 feet away! its a cabin/camp family owned so all of us can go up there and get away! we go every weekend but the whole family goes for 2 weeks in the summer!!!! so there is plenty of room!!!!! LOL
Comment: Thank you so much for the magnet! I collect magnets, usually from places we visit (amusement parks, tourist sites, etc.), but maybe I'll try to get one from every state as I'm not sure I'll ever make it to them all :)
Comment: Havent received this swap from you either, if i do receive anything i will of course re-rate !
Response: i sent this swap out along time ago so it should be there soon!!!! i was late on a few because of the loss of 2 family members but pmed my partners this swap was not a late one so it should have arrived i know i sent it out because it was so hard for me to decide what to give to you and put it together but i def sent it out!!!! i will resend if need be but it should be there soon if it hasnt arrived yet! thanks
Comment: Thanks for sharing... sounds like your bf is like my hubby... he insists I am losing my mind by decorating this early for Xmas and refuses to bring down my totes of decorations til AFTER thanksgiving... lol
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely decorated envelope and letter. The postcards are great, I especially love the bear one and the Hello Kitty stationery and stickers are so cuuute.
Comment: I would kill to be up there in the fall to see the leaves change. Maryland is beautiful too though, but I need a change of scenery. My boyfriend wants to move to Florida in a year or so, so I'd never get to see the leaves change!! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the pc. I love new england. My aunt lives in NH so i've spent time at hampton beach with her and she took me up to old orchard for a weekend also. It's alot of fun. The water was actually warm that day.. although not as warm as the caribbean. I dove british columbia and the water temp was 46 degrees.
Response: we took our daughter to old orchard for the weekend in june for her bday and she loved it!!! we go to hampton for day trips since its an hour away!

Comment: Hello Jessica, Thank you for a great note and of the explanation of all the postcards. I felt like I had visited NH. I have been here for almost 5 years coming from Orlando because of medical reasons. I love it here for I love all 4 seasons. Not
hot and hotter!!! I have yet to go in the direction of Lebanon, just in the other direction of Branson and then over to Tulsa through Joplin. Good to hear from you. Hope that we can be partners again. anita
Comment: Got your postcard today, I'll have it out in the morning. Thanks for the extra postcard! And thank you for including postage, it was really nice of you, but I can't send mail from Canada with US postage, so I had to add another stamp. You'll have a pretty unique piece of mail for your collection, and a very confused postman, haha!
Response: i wondered that! so sorry about that i knew it too! well thanks anyway lol happy swapping!

Response: thats why i stay at home!!!! then i dont miss a thing! i see her learn everything!!!!
Comment: LOVE the moose PC!! I'd never have imagined an "old" moose was only 15 years old! They should live longer than that!! Wish I could come be a leaf peeper in NH! Thanks so much!!
Response: no problem thanks for the rating!!!! we just had our first snow yesterday and we normally dont get snow until after thanksgiving!!! not snow that actually sticks anyways we are known for big winters but this is too early:(
HELLO JESSICA,NICE TO MEET YOU! THANKS FOR THE POST CARD AND LETTER! I WOULD LOVE TO WRITE BACK TO YOU,BUT I WON'T GET RATED FOR IT.BUT IF U WANT TO BE PERSONAL PEN PAL FRIENDS THAT IS OK WITH ME...JUST LET ME NO!

Comment: Thank you so much for the pens and such beautiful postcards as well !!! As it wasnt written the swap name, I didnt know which swap they were for and Im sorry to be late to rate you. Now I know that the postcards were not for the swap but were extra for me !!! Thank you again : )
Response: oh i must hav forgotten to put my swap bot id card in the package and write the swap i ususally always do sorry! thanks for the heart!!!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great swap! I loved your answers (and found quite a few that were similar to my own) and the bonus recipe should come in handy! Who knows, I might even try it out tonight! Cheers! Ainslie
Comment: Hi from o-HI-o ! Thanks for the New Hampshire mapcard. Really like the pictures of all the animals and your flag. We've had a week of 80 degree temps with sunshine! Trees are changing slowly, but beautiful. I would love to see the Northeast's leaves ~ I've heard they have the most radiant colors of all ! Thanks again, Judy
Response: we DO!!! so many tourists come up here to see them we call them leaf peepers!!!! lol
Comment: That's scary about the ghost! I used to work at the retail store Hollister and before it was a Hollister, it was some shoe store and I guess a man had shot himself in there. Anyhoo, when we were working in the morning or evening sometimes, the lights would randomly shut off and our door alarms would randomly go off! It was creepy stuff!
Comment: Thank you for the Kamonohashikamo memos, he is one of my favorite characters and he is the one that I have the least amount of stuff of. I will def. write back, and I actually think that I may have sent you a pen pal letter for another swap >_<
Response: lol thats cool ya i saw he was your favorite on your profile lol thank god i had it i love kawaii but dont know much about it yet would love to learn more lol happy swapping!!!!
Comment: The big ones are actually letter sheets. I'll message you with some links to sites. The first thing to do is browse to get a feel for the kinds of kawaii out there. Keep the list of brands close at hand along with a list of popular characters. Suggest you look at the profiles of all the swap participants to make the list.
Response: thanks sorry about that i dont have much yet because im new to kawaii lol but love it!!! i dont have a favorite character yet but i really dont know many names of them just brands from swap descriptionns thanks for the 5 anyways happy swapping!!!!
Comment: Thanks for the neat postcard. Is that a two lane bridge? It looks narrow from the side view. :)
Response: yes it is two lane but very tight fight it has to be cuz there is alot of traffic and tourists that visit it. it also has a sidewalk aisle in it for people and horses there is a sign saying please walk horses or 1 dollar fine as a joke i will have to take a pic and send it to you im glad you like it
Comment: Thank you so much. The things you sent have really come in handy.. I moved into my first house and with all the stuff to buy I forgot some of the smaller details like a loofah and the wax tarts to make my house smell good. The magnet is my first magnet on my fridge. :-)
Comment: Tks for your answers and I am praying for your nephew-so sad
Response: thank u we had lots of praying going on and he got off the breathing machine after a week and they didnt think he would live that long or if he did live not off a machine but hes home!!!! thanks and god bless
