Comment: Linda, thank you so much for the postcard. It has got to be the most beautiful postcard of a lighthouse I have ever seen. I am on a kick reading all of Danielle Steele's books. Each one is so different. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for the great postcards you picked for me! The Yosemite one was my favourite but the Santorini one was different and I liked that....definately a viewpoint you don't traditionally see when you get Santorini postcards :)
Comment: Have you read any Deborah Harkness books? She's a great paranormal writer. I've read her 3 books 2 times and I'll likely read it again. I'm excited. :) I have yet to read the JD Robb series though my neighbor has started them this past week. Thanks for swapping.
Comment: Linda, thank you so much for the Port Cabrillo Light Station. I didn't have it, so it goes in my lighthouse binder. I never knew there were so many different types of lighthouses. Thank you again, Shirley
Comment: I love the postcard and the purple really sets the lighthouse off! I am currently reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle as the Disney movie will be released here soon and I wanted to read it before seeing the movie adaptation. I haven't read J.D. Robb yet but she is on my list for this year!
Comment: thank you for both of the beautiful cards. I can definitely put the birthday one to good use!
Response: This card was mailed at the post office on 1129. My question is why you did not let me know thay it wasn't received, I would have resent it right away. The card I sent to all partners was the same - Father's Christmas with an owl. I have not heard from anyone saying that they had not received it. I will be sending you the card again. If you look at my record I have never gotten a 1 before.
Comment: Linda, I'd give you 100 hearts if I could!!! Thank you so very much for ALL the wonderful things you sent! You spoiled me big time, and I love it! Very glad you joined and thank you so much again! xoxo
Response: I am so glad that you liked all. I have really enjoyed joining your swaps. Your friend, Linda
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful glittery Thomas Kinkade Christmas card. Do you know I met him, his wife and brother/sister-in-law a couple of years before he passed away. His brother/sister-in-law ran the local store.
Thank you for the 3 postcards. I was born in Anaheim but came to Texas when I was 3. My Mom will enjoy looking at the map card.
Comment: Linda, thank you for the great Christmas card and also the postcard of the lighthouse in Biloxi, MS. I didn't have that one. I love to shop the secondhand store for clothes. I go into the richer sections of towns and cities for my new wardrobes. My husband is amazed how little I pay for so much. I probably have 4 outfits for each day. Love it! Merry Christmas. Shirley
Comment: I love the postcard you sent and thank you for telling me all about your likes. Audio books are the best and I am seriously thinking about getting back into them of a night time to help me sleep!
Comment: Just got the card in the mail ! :) Was it the Inside Passage cruise you guys did? I've heard it's beautiful! Every summer we go down to Valdez and treat ourselves to the Glacier cruise every other year. It's alot of fun! Seeing the Glaciers and the wildlife on the water...Glad you enjoyed your cruise up here :)
Comment: A great selection of cards! I LOVE the train card. It is a new one for my train collection. It always fascinates me when I start a collection and have lots of cards in the collection and yet people always seem to find one I don't have. Thanks so much.
Comment: Thank you for this R is for Railroad postcard, Linda! The picture is great! (It looks fantastical to me!). You enjoy Jayne Ann Krentz?! She is my most favorite author! Do you also read her historically-set books (Amanda Quick) and/or her futuristic books (Jayne Castle)? I love her writing no matter which name she uses! (I feel the same about Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb.) :-) Thank you for sharing!
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard of Wales ðŸ˜‹ I traveled all over England and Scotland back in 1999 but I don't think we made it over into Wales. I loved Scotland and would like to go back and visit Wales and Ireland too. Have a great day, Nathan
Comment: All great postcards that fit my interests - thanks so much! And what could be more perfect for me than Mickey and Minnie riding Dumbo!!!!! That one is now right at my computer where it makes me smile.
Comment: Thank you so much for a great collection!! I loved ALL the postcards but the Castle one is so beautiful. It is the first one I ever receive on this theme. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Ps.. The cave one is new to me as well! Thank you for the extra PC
Comment: Like you I love James Patterson. I am currently reading a book about Australia's first serial killer. Thank you so much for the postcard as well! My mum has just started listening to audio books while she drives to and from work, she is really enjoying them. I want to get back into listening to them and think when I go for my walks will be the best time.
Comment: Thank you for these lovely cards of lighthouses, sunsets, the ocean, and nature! Do you know I bought many of the Piasa Bluffs postcard on a visit to Grafton this fall? So surprised to receive one from the West!
Comment: Thank you so much Linda for the great PCs. I especially like the Colorado Crystal Mill - so pretty. And I always welcome maps even if they don't go into my personal 'state' collection as there is always someone out there who collects mapcards. Thanks again and I hope you're doing great out there and didn't get too much rain!
Comment: Hi Linda! Thanks for the great postcards you sent to fulfill this swap. My absolute favorite (which surprised even me!) was the 'lobster' card from Bar Harbor. What a beautiful scene. Thanks for choosing so thoughtfully.
Comment: Thank you, Linda! Great postcards, perfect for me. Did you see orcas in Alaska? That would be so cool!!! I hope to get there one day. Thanks for all the postcards and glad you joined!!! : )
Response: I loved the cruise to Alaska, however I did not get to see whales. I only saw the tails. I want to go baxk again. I am still hoping to see whates, maybe in California. Thanks for the rating, Linda
Comment: No need to apologize for not having any of the state cards because the PCs you sent are wonderful! I love the tulips & windmill one - it is so vibrant and tulips are one of my favorite flowers of spring. I found the PC of Angels Camp interesting as I had never heard of it and it looks like such a wonderful little town from yesteryear which are always so fun and interesting to visit. Thanks again for the great selection of PCs for this swap and hope to see you again in the future at your mailbox or mine ~~
Comment: Hi Linda! Thank you for the lovely items you sent to fulfill this swap. I LOVE the California horses pc and the notecard (really pretty) almost looks like a Punch Studio or Cavallini card. I'm going to hoard the postcard . haha!
Comment: Thanks so much, Linda!!! Not only am I in love with the Snoopy postcards and the others too, but it was really nice to read your note!! I love books that take place in familiar places too! That's so nice that you saw lots of family at that party. I'll bet it was great!!! Hope you're feeling well and doing great!! xo
Response: Thanks for the rating, heart and comment. We really did have a good time. My sister-in-law added a comment on Facebook on a picture my son posted, stating that it would be good to come back.
Comment: Linda...Thanks for joining the swap...it has been awhile since we met in the mail and it was good to hear from you! What an adorable pair of dogs sleeping on the PC you sent...I need a lazy day in the sun! Happy May friend...Charlene
Comment: I'm in total shock!! Every since going to DW in 2008 I have wanted a card of the Tree of Life. I looked all over DW, no card no where. I have checked eBay, Etsy, Google, etc. No luck!! It was the first major thing I saw at Animal Kingdom and my camera had died so I didn't get a picture. Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!!!
Comment: I have given audio books a break as the last one I listened to, took me 3 months in the end as I just wasnt motivated. Reading is my passion and I am hoping a week off will get me back into the swing of things. Thanks for the postcard !
Comment: Love the Bulldog PC - one of our dachshunds sits up just like the pup in the photo - we call it "prairie dogging" - lol. Our fur babies make us laugh all the time. Have a great week. Take care, Annette
Comment: I just bought from a used book store the first Kay Scarpetta novel by Patricia Cornwell. I like to read them in order and my library didn't have the first book. I am looking forward to it. Thank you for the beautiful Sacramento flower postcard.
Comment: WOW! Awesome package! Thanks for finding and sending me a Birthday card! They are all favorites again! What an awesome Pixar card and a South Dakota card that doesn't have Mount Rushmore on it! I thought one didn't exist!!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable Christmas card and pretty lighthouse postcard. I love them! Isn't scrapbooking and card making awesome! It can be so relaxing, and you have something neat when you're done! I host a lot of handmade card swaps, so if you ever want to join, please check them out. :-)
Comment: Hi Linda! I love, love, love your pc! What a couple of cuties! We are pooch folks here, so when we get something we are very excited! LOL! Hope you are having a great summer! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks, Linda for the different style PC. I love the b/w and red/white lighthouses and the other styles, well, all of them, I guess! I passed thru your way yesterday, it was 103Âº......108Âº when I hit Fairfield....No thanks! Still in the 90's home in Sonoma County. Heat, stop, please! = )
Comment: Thank you for the two postcards. I am going to a craft class this afternoon. I haven't been for a few weeks so today's activity will be a surprise for me. I hope that it is card making. Thanks again for the cards.
Comment: Hello Linda! Thank you for sending me a Lighthouse postcard for the letter "L" postcard swap. Beautiful view in this postcard of Kilauea Lighthouse, tall cliff & deep blue ocean. Interesting fact Kilauea Point is a National Wildlife refuge. Thank you for this PC! Happy May!
Comment: What wonderful PCs you sent for this swap. . . love them! I especially liked the one of the hot springs in Glenwood Springs, CO - it brought back memories of when I went there over 30 years ago, long before it had the water slides and all the goodies :-) Thanks again for the great PCs and have a wonderful week ~~
Comment: Linda, wow, you went way overboard on this swap. I got your two envelopes. The postcards are super especially the light house one, the cute Snoopy Valentine with Woodstock, the 2 great cupcake notecards and the flower stamps. Do you know where the lighthouse is on your calling card? Shirley
Comment: What a pretty chocolate lab -- they are such wonderful dogs. I'm a small dog person but if I ever did get a bigger dog it would be a lab because they are just so darn lovable and sweet. Thanks again for the cute PC and happy swapping ~~
Comment: As you always do, my friend, you sent great PCs. Hope you're doing great and not getting any flooding from the rain. . . are you close to where the storms are hitting? Thanks again and have a happy holiday season ~~
Comment: Hi Linda! Love the CA pc and hearing from you! I am jealous of your classes and crops! Someday I hope to have the time and energy to do all of that! LOL! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I'm so sorry you had to re-send - Crazy, but, I still haven't received the original send - I think my post office hired on some new people, and, it looks like everything is in a bit of a turmoil. I just want to say Thank you so much for this re-send - You say this send isn't as good as the first, but, I think these post cards are super terrific.
Thank you so much - I love them.
Happy day to you.
Comment: Linda, your card is beautiful, I absolutely love it! I really like how you added the light weight paper insert, that is a clever idea that I have not seen. Do you know what kind of paper you folded for the inside? I really like that idea!
Comment: Linda, again the postcards are wonderful. Looking at the the Sacramento one, I don't think I would have loved living in the horse and buggy days. Not taking a bath a month at a time. UGH! Shirley
Comment: Such a gorgeous card, Linda!!! It is so appropriate as I live in the beehive state and we have a little farmhouse and it is themed in beehives!!! I think I will display it for all to see. Thanks for such a special swap!
Comment: Hi Linda! I received your envelope today with the map card of Mississippi! Thank you so much for sending it to me- it's such a cute map card & I'm so happy to have it as part of my collection! ♥
Comment: Hello Linda,
What a beautiful card! Thank you for a great birthday card that I look forward to using for someone very special. I love the color combination you used on this card, This card will be a great addition to my Card Collection.
Comment: Thanks, Linda, for all the great PC and the extra too! They will fit wonderfully into my map collection. I have been to San Francisco a few times. I loved the Exploratorium and Golden Gate Park. We were looking for a tourist trap at Fishermen's Wharf and found a place where they sold jade horses instead. We stayed at Presidio before it closed. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: What a BEAUTIFUL orange card! I love it! That orange corduroy button is so cool and that black paper with colorful flowers is so pretty! I'm not going to be able to send this one to someone else! Maybe I'll send it to myself!!! ;-)
Comment: Hi Linda! Thanks so much for the lovely Easter card and Sacramento pc - it looks amazing! I have never been to CA, so adding to my bucket list! Wishing you and yours a Happy Easter as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the WONDERFUL postcards! It's so great to receive TWO new state maps for my collection (I really like the Yosemite map, too, as well as the other two cards! Thank you for sending an extra!)
Response: Thanks for trhe 5 and the heart. I am glad that you liked them. I love map cards also. Hope you are having a great week. Linda
Comment: Love the PC. . .never went to the Sacramento Zoo when I lived in California. It seems we like the same authors and TV shows -- I've read every one of F. Kellerman, Parker and Cobens's books. . . but I don't do audio books - I'm an old school kind of gal :-) Thanks for the great PC and happy swapping and reading ~~
Comment: Thank you Linda for the fabulous "X's" & "O's" Valentine's Day card! And thank you for the multiview postcard. Please check my listing of groups for ones I do postcard swaps. I love to swap & send postcards, I'm a member of postcrossing.com
Comment: Thank you for the Valentine's Day card and also the cloth hearts. They are really neat. Where did you get them? I don't know if I told you, but you can do Iris Folding with material. I also make the patterns bigger. I go to the UPS store and they make them bigger for me. I then put them in picture frames and give them as gifts or keep for myself. Shirley
Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous postcards!!! I especially LOVE the Greece one! My hubby is a Marine and will deploy tomorrow :( but they will be making a stop in Greece and I keep bugging him about getting me postcards! So if and WHEN he forgets, you have me covered! Thank you so much!
Comment: OK I got really confused and rated you for the wrong postcard. So let me try this again . . . thanks for the VERY well matched postcard and stamp LOL and the nice note on the back. It is always fun to find someone else with common interests. Sorry for the confusion -- thanks again for the great swap! <3
Comment: Thanks for the neat post card. I just finished talking to my brother-in-law in CA. He lives in Sun City down below Los Angles. He thinks we need to come visit but we're pretty much snow bound here in Iowa. With more snow coming tonight.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. My grandfather had a black Labrador when I was young. It was trained to retrieve ducks and rabbits when my grandfather went shooting. I agree that Labs are beautiful pets.
Comment: Thanks so much, Linda for the BEAUTIFUL lighthouse postcard. Please excuse for extreme lateness in rating. I didn't have internet for a few days, and then I had to be with my Mom in the hospital. Thanks again, and Happy swapping!!! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the notecards! My favorite is definitely the penguins...so so cute! Thank you for the extra notecard...I like the anchor card that you write your note on too! Where did you get that one?
Comment: Great swapping with you again. Thank you for the postcard of Cape Lookout. I have seen it many time but it is hard to get across the river, island and sound just to get to it. It is the farthest from mainline to get to lighthouse in North Carolina. Shirley
Comment: Great selection of PCs. I love the Yosemite one with all the beautiful waterfalls - some of my favorite things to see when traveling,. The San Francisco one is gorgeous, and the Jackson Hole one brings back many memories for me from years past. Thanks again for the wonderful PCs and have a great holiday season and a bright and joyous 2014 ~~
Comment: Linda, thank you for the Christmas card. I love the traditional ones the best. I see you are really busy with the holidays. Have you tried making the iris folder patterns bigger so you can frame them. I made an 8/12 of a Scottie dog. Came out real cute and got a lots of praise from it. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card. The gift tags will be used on gifts for a special friend. I've been so busy with Thanksgiving and Christmas volunteering and other functions that I will be happy with a quiet Christmas Day! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the cute Halloween card! I am kind of sad that my kids have out grown trick-or- treating. I think I enjoyed it more than they did. Now I have to buy my own candy! Ha ha! Thanks also for the wildlife postcard.
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. Glad you liked all. Happy New Year.
Response: Thanks for the heart and the rating. Christmas is coming too fast. ""Went to a class last week and made a really cute paper (like the kind from Starsbucks) coffee cup to put candy in for the holiday Take care and happy swapping,Linda
Comment: You know, I live in California, and I've never ventured out to Sacramento! I was really happy with the postcard. Made me realize that there is plenty more locations here in California that I yet to discover. There is another world outside of LA! Thank you so much!
Response: Thanks for the heart and the rating. Glad you liked it.I lived in Orange County and Sacramento is different. Love it here. Happy swapping,Linda
Comment: What a pretty postcard, I've never gotten one of Turkey. You are lucky to be living in an area where you can take crafting classes. The nearest area to me that offers classes like that is almost an hour drive. Because of that I get most of my ideas and instruction from the internet so if you know of any good sites I'm always looking for a good website!
Response: Thanks for the heart and the rating. Glad you liked it. Happy swapping,Linda
Comment: Linda - Thank you so much for the great PCs! The Holland one with the kiss cut-out will go right into my collectin ;-) I love seeing the Victorian architecture of the houses of Cape May, NJ - such fabulous architecture and love seeing these old homes restored. Thanks again for the great PCs and happy swapping ~~
Response: Thanks for the heart and rating. So glad that you liked it. Happy swapping back at you.
Comment: Linda - Thanks for the great animal PCs. I love the Sierra Nevad Wildlife one, and the Old Sacramento one is wonderful!

Response: Thanks for the heart and the rating Glad you liked,. It isa good to swap with you. Happy swapping.
Comment: You won't believe this but I just found this envie of postcards when I was cleaning my office. I'm not sure how/why this got misplaced and not rated, except it was the last swap I did before taking a year break from swap-bot. There was no note but the name & postmark on the envelope matches up to this swap. Anyway, this is very late but thanks for the beautiful postcards!
Response: Thanks for the heart and the rating,. I am glad that you found them. Happy swapping
Comment: Thanks for the great postcards Linda. I always love getting PCs from you because your Swapbot name reminds me of my precious furbaby whom I lost last year. I was "Maggie's mother" for a while! :)

Comment: Love the snowy cards, it's probably the only snow we'll get at this level. :-) Thank you for the lighthouse post card, I've been to that one before when we drove down the Oregon coast. Thanks for the gift tags!!! Merry Christmas!!!!
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the lovely pc! I am jealous of all your scrapbooking time! Of course, I could do it more at home and get stuff done, but.... It just seems so much more fun to go elsewhere, although I always take way too much! Are your organized? I seem to be missing that gene! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Linda - Thanks for the great selection of PCs! The Sand Hills Light onn Lake Superior is definitely a different lighthouse - very hard to even notice it! Loved the waterfront of Norfolk, a great city to visit in VA, and the skyline of Atlanta shows how much that city has grown through the years, and the River Derswent with the Derby Cathedral in the distance is lovely. Thanks again so much and happy swapping ~~
Comment: Thank you for the postcards. Your city looks interesting. It looks alot like New bern(my city) We do not have the palm trees though. The Thunder Valley Original Blend looks interesting, I'll have to try it. Shirley
Comment: Linda, I am a little concerned that you only had two mapcards in the envelope along with other beautiful pc's. the swap is for 4 mapcards, and I did not want to rate you a "3". let me know what you would like to do...anita
Response: I had mailed 6 ppstcards to you on 10-2. On 10-12 you messaged me stating that I had only sent 2 map cards. Several messages back and forth and on 10-12 I agreed to mail you 2 more. Yesterday I messaged you stating that I was mailing the cards today. I did mail them today. I do not know why I sent you the wrong cards. I have never done it before. My apologies. Hope you like the new ones. Linda
Comment: Linda - Thanks fore the great PCs!! The Ziggurat office building looks like something that should be in Vegas!! And the Old Sacrameno one reminds me of the 'gold rush' day we had in Deadwood, SD when I was growing up. I always enjoy seeing lighthouses from different areas, and the Shakespeare one is wonderful. Thanks again for the great PCs ~~
Comment: Hi Linda - Thanks for the great PCs. . I love them all!! I am so fascinated with Santorini and the PC you sent really gives me a different perspective on it as it never occurred to me that it ws nt right on the water! Thanks again for the great PCs ~~
Comment: Met swap requirements, but arrived with postage due because it was more than 1oz but only had 45 cents postage. Please weigh your mail before sending.
Response: Thanks for the rating and I am sorry that the postage was short by 20 cents. Usually I take the postcards to the post office for weighing. I know I placed an extra vintage postcard for you , bringing the total to 6. I have mailed over 1,000 swaps and this is the first time that this has happened that the postage was short. I will check with the postoffice in the future.
Comment: The card that you sent ot me was so cool. Loved all the views of California. We are going there in a week and a half. We are starting down by the red woods and work our way up the coast back up to Washington.You said you liked paper crafting too maybe we can do some private swaps.That is so cool that you go to scrapbooking classes. Wish we had more around here. I would be going to them all the time. Thank youn agin for the card.
Comment: Great PCs. . . the California Natural Wonders mapcard goes right into my collectin : ) I really like the Sutter's Fort one also. . . I never visited there when I lived in CA but am certain it is an interesting place. Thanks again and I'll 'see' you again at the mailbox ~~
Comment: What a beautiful and detailed card you sent to me.Anyone would love this B'Day Card. You most definitely deserve the 5 and star. Thank you, oops, and thank you for the beautiful papers. What a surprise.
Comment: Thanks for such a cool PC and thanks for sharing your interest in the dog world. Over the past yrs I have come to re-love dogs (since I am a grandma to my son's bulldog-pug mix). Labs seem to be a very popular dog!
Comment: Thanks for the great PC of Reno - I've never been there. . . I lived in S. Cal for 17 years and went to Vegas or Laughlin. I have all the state maps and now am collecting PCs of the state flower, the state bird, the state capitol, and the state license plate. . . it's amazing how few of those I have!! Thanks for the great PC and happy swapping. . . see you again in the mail!
Comment: Linda, this card is just the type I needed! I have a very dear friend back home going thru some hard times right now and your card is just the one I want to send. Thank you so much, it is beautiful.
