Comment: What a wonderful postcard! Thanks for sharing! My kids are a bit bored but I try to mix up our activities if I can. We went on two walks today since the temps didn't break 89 degrees! It was actually nice! Thanks and take care!
Response: I love our cooler evenings. We get a breeze from the Pacific Ocean 30 miles away. Thx for the rating = ) ♥
Comment: Thank you for installation art pc. I am glad you explained it to me. I did pass through the Berlin Wall shortly after it was installed. Did you visit Shanghai? I am not sure I can visualize a wall in my head.
Response: I did not, my daughter did. Many interesting things to see, she said. Thx for the rating! ♥
Comment: Hi Miss Paula, Hope all is well your way. Thanks for the compliments on Shelby and Dory!! Thanks for the pc, the stickers, and the address labels. Thanks for a great swap. Take care and God Bless you
Response: Thanks for hosting, Dear Donna! It's good here, sunshne but not hot for more than couple of days at a time. = ) Thanks for the lovely rating! ♥
Comment: I read your answers while sipping on a cup of coffee and enjoyed it very much. Thank you for the insightful answers and the kitty inserts. This was an interesting swap. God bless and keep you safe.
Response: Thank you so much! It was interesting. = ) ♥
Comment: Hi Miss Paula! Thank you for all the goodies as well as the fun art collab to work on, it already looks great though, so not sure what to add - yikes! I love pcs, so you really made my day! I am hoping and praying for the day this passes, as I am social distancing but not enjoying it much! LOL! I like getting out and about, so... Thanks again for everything! Hugs, Please Stay Safe, and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks for the rating! Yes, this is a different time for most of us. I've got lots of things to keep me busy. Fortunately my sister just moved in so I have company now. = )
Comment: I love this weird card!! Can you believe this is '93 and we're still talking about this issue of climate change. Love it, thanks so much! Hope y'all have all the TP you need too. We've been lucky ;) Hang in there!
Response: I'm glad you like it, I always wonder. I like the weird stuff, too! I'm good for at least 6 weeks with TP and food! Be well!
Comment: Thank you for the fun swap. Those vintage/antique paper images are awesome! I especially enjoyed reading the household tips. Some are quite funny. I'm so glad you joined the CF group. God bless.
Response: Thanks so much for the rating. ♥ I'm glad you enjoyed it. I agree they can be humorous, esp the ones that talk about being a housewife!
Comment: What an adorable card! I love your little guy! I hope I can come up with something as good to finish this off. Thanks for the note. It is hot here, but I love that. I get cold at anything below 70 and I'll be putting on a sweater at that temperature!
Response: Thanks! Ha-Ha, my friends in AZ and FL are the worst.They get cold if it's not in the 80's on up. I like it right around 80, I think that's perfect.
Comment: Miss Paula, beautiful card! I love it! You’re very talented! The die cuts thank you! Wonderful swap! The cat book is pretty good, I’m enjoying it! Are you enjoying it? Have a blessed day and God bless you
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating! The book is an easy read, I'm liking it. God Bless you and yours!
Comment: Thank you Paula for the beautiful valentine card - love the watercolors. And I'm so excited to use the mermaid and seahorses in my ocean journal - they are perfect and what fun to watercolor them (yours is beautiful) and thank you for all the heart cut outs:)
Response: Yippee! So glad I could put together a swap you would enjoy! Thanks for the love-ly rating! = ) ♥
Comment: I have never those pops before. Im not a banana fan but daughter loves bananas. Thanks for the heads up they didnt taste that well. I told her lol
I love swapping pc also. Our weather has been a roller coaster. Snowed tues but 50/60 today. Snow coming next sunday round the 19th
Response: Spring is coming, hopefully the groundhog doesn't see his shadow! Stay warm, thanks for the rating! = )
Comment: Thank you for the cool PC! I have tried to convince myself that seltzers taste good but it's not working so far! And I always see people buying SanPellegrino or Bubly at the grocers. I feel left out!
Response: Thanks for the rating! I don't really like seltzer but some are better than others. I try, but I like sugar! Lol
Comment: I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit for this ATC - it is FABOOLOUS! 👻 I love all the textures and colors. It's sweet and spooky at the same time. Thank you for making me a great ATC and for sending the extra Halloween bits!
Response: Aww, thanks for the sweet words. I always love your stuff so I'm glad you were pleased with the swap. I just wasn't feeling crafty the past couple of weeks. Thanks to you again for the great swap! ♥
Response: Glad you like it-with this type of swap you never know. I have 3 different boxes of PC's and I have mostly been sending out of my Zazzle box but this time I thought to go into my older random PC box. Thanks for the rating! = ) ♥
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard. It is awesome that you have been all around where I live. We lived off of Lime Kiln for a few years probably around the time your mom lives there. Thanks for the great swap. 😊
Response: You are welcome! Thanks for the great rating! We love your area. My cousins house is off Banner Lava Cap. = )
Comment: Thank you ! I so love the Halloween card! I can't wait either for Halloween! I go nuts decorating! Esp. my front yard. Wherever did you find the Halloween card you sent me of the witch & zombie? I get all my Halloween postcards etc. from either Amazon or Etsy.
Response: I bought it from Zazzle last year. They have lots of Halloween PC's. If you join Zazzle black for $10 it gives you free shipping for a year. Thanks for rating! = )
Comment: Very nice swap, there was no swap info in the envelope I am sure it was an oversight
Because you took the time to respond I added you a heart, thank you. I love it when swappers take the time to be in touch. I love giving Hearts.
Response: I'm glad you like the swap. I always include a note or a swap card in the envie but I'm getting older and might slip. Thank you for the rating. If we swap again, I'll triple check for my info! = )
Comment: Whats this Miss Paula....... a Sleepy Hallow stamp? And a "stamp collector" stamp? Hmmmmm, what have I done to deserve these? These are reeeeeeeeeeeally nice stamps to me as I have had to buy them from EBAY. Theyre all beautiful and I really appreciate you using them. Where did you get your pretty postcard from? THANK YOU!
Response: That was my last Sleepy Hollow and I was saving it for someone special. = ) Pretty Postcard because of YOU directing me to Zazzle! I just can't figure why people don't like Zazzle unless they collect certain publishers......Thanks for the lovely rating! ♥
Comment: Thanks for the re-send Paula. That cool vintage circus procession was well worth waiting for, & the stamp you used is absolutely gorgeous. "Fortunate" is not the word I'd use to describe living in a warm climate near beaches though. These days (at least here in So Fla.) "fearful" is a better word! The rising sea level is already eroding our coastline & I'm tired of hot & hotter! Thanks again for the thoughtfully chosen card.
Response: Glad you like the PC! I am not a fan of the hot and hotter either!
Comment: Hi! I love, love, love your pc! Yes, I love to read and your book die cut is awesome! Lucky you to live across the street from you library - I am so jealous! Thanks again for the great hm pc! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Glad you like it! It's a fun one, that little book die. I do love the library! Thanks for the rating. = )
Comment: Thank you so much for all the PCs! I love the dressed up pug notecard! Oh these are real Kawaii papers you sent! It is a nice selection too :) Maybe one day we will be able to meet. I was able to meet another swapper on my anniversary trip. That was so much fun!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the swap! Thanks for rating. Maybe someday we might meet! = )
Comment: Hi Paula, Thanks for resending, I finally got it! I have had a lot of mail go missing lately.... wondering where it has gone.... Love the PC! So silly.... Have a great day and Happy swapping to you.....
Response: Thanks for the rating! Hopefully I'll see you in a Found Image swap! = )
Comment: Always always fun to find you in the mailbox..... and today am just home from Barbados....and what a nice surprise..... WoW what to add to this homer....???? it is beautiful as it stands..... thanks for the note and the extra cards... GREAT SWAP as always......
Response: Oh, Barbados! I sent the day after I got home from the Big Island of Hawaii! Always happy to prepare a swap for one of favorite swappers! = )
Comment: So good to hear from you again! I loved your letter a few months back. Gonna reply, but trying to let it marinate a while so it doesn't feel like I'm smothering you. As always, I love your white pen on cardboard.
Response: Alrighty! Enjoying hearing how you are living the best of both worlds! = )
Comment: Miss Paula!!! You really made my day. This is my new favorite! Thank you so much for explaining the process! I'm going to try it!
Response: Yippee! A few years ago, I learned of serendipity in a swap. I had made some collage and was really hesitant to paint over the whole thing but I loved it! Glad you enjoyed this swap! =) Thx ♥
Comment: Awww Paula.....as always a STUNNING ATC I just love little Frida.....and thanks so much for all the extras and the envelope you made.....extra special swap and many many HEARTS!!!!
Response: Thanks so much for the rating! I was a little nervous because I had a swap go missing this week and I was hoping yours arrived safely because I couldn't replicate her! Always glad to swap with you! = ) ♥
Comment: Oh Paula, I was having such a bad day when your package arrived. It made me smile with all the kitties inside and out. Plus your art journal page is beautiful. That’s always been one of my favorite songs. Thank you so much 💜
Response: I love it when that happens. I have had many a bad day and opened my mailbox to some Happy Mail! One reason I love swapping is to bring a little Joy. Thanks for the rating. ♥
Comment: Hi Miss Paula! Thanks so much for the extras you sent. I was in need of backs for ATCs. The envelope was beautifully decorated. I like the collaborative work work that was done on the PC. I will certainly send it home.
Response: Thank you for the rating and comment! I really like these Collab swaps. Glad you can use the extras! = )
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I actually really like it haha! It reminds me of a tarot card and it took me a few to figure out that you could turn it upside down to see a different picture in it lol. Thanks again!
Response: Thanks for the rating! I usually like the 'Ugly' cards I receive in these swaps, too. Lol
Comment: What a great personalized journal page. Wish I could give you about 10 more ❤️'S . Love it. Thanks for all the extras too. Are the papers and background made with a gelli plate? I just got one and need to experiment. You made my day, thank you.
Response: Oh, so glad you like it! Yes, gelli plate. You'll love it! It's hit and miss but keep trying it and you will make some beautiful art! Thanks for the great rating!
Comment: I received this swap today. Thank you so much. 😊 It’s such an interesting postcard to work on. Thank you also for the really great extras. I can definitely use them. I loved your note, as well. I’ve bought doll shoes from Wish and they are so cute and great quality.

Comment: I feel so honored that I got to see this!!! I broke down and bought the paint pens but they’re just now getting to my house today, so I have to wait until the next JD project to use them. I’m outting your ATC on my craft room’s wall of fame. Love!! ❤️
Response: Awww, thanks for the sweet words. You are gonna LOVE those pens. Sometmes I hold back with certain supplies because I want them to last, but these pens are so vibrant and you need so little ink, they last a long time and I just can't say enough about them. My favorite ever! You are gonna create some magic with those pens!
Comment: This works out nicely because I DO have a house mouse I can add. Thanks for all the extras - so kind of you to include them. I've had some drawing disasters...hopefully people can at least get a laugh from them.
Response: That is awesome, she is going to love her mice! I don't know if the other swapper got a laugh, but I sure did! Thanks for the rating! ♥
Comment: What a fun card. I believe I have some sewing themed things to add to it. Thanks for the lovely note. I would love to do a private swap. I will try to get some die cuts done next week. I don't have a lot of dies but I think I can borrow some from a friend.
Response: Great! I don't have a ton of dies either, but I have some fun ones!

Comment: How exciting, you'll have to post or send some pics! I want to learn how to sew so I can make dresses that fit me better and that aren't so expensive! We just moved from Rosemead and are thinking of moving back to the Bay Area or Sacramento, too many allergies here!
Response: Here in Sonoma County we always say "Thank you Luther Burbank' because he brought every plant and tree imaginable and we are the allergen capital of the state! Thanks for rating! ♥
Comment: Yes, I love this b/w white architectural PC. I flip it over & WOW it's a bright and colorful party going on back there with fun stickers and quotes and a great note. I'm sure the USPS people got their day brightened also by this Big Party on a small place you created on the back of this PC - THanks from Lucky Me !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Response: Aww, thanks for the sweet comment! I'm glad it gave you a smile. Oftentimes I have enjoyed the back of the PC's I receive as much or more than the front! = )
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful spooky doll. :) BTW I am not sure if you have any pets but my cat was in love with the envelope you shipped it in. Ended up giving it to him and he has played with it for days!

Response: You are very welcome and I Thank you for the nice comment. And, the rating! ♥ Glad you like it! = )
Comment: Thank you for your great homemade card. I love it! I thought Art Noveau was the same as Art Deco, but Art Noveau precedes Art Deco. Still, anyone who has the artistic flair and creatively I so much admire and respect. One side you have yummy food, and the other the fashion and architecture parts of Art Deco.
Response: Glad you like the card. Yes, I think the styles blend and are very similar. Thanks for rating! = )
Comment: What a fun and happy card! Thanks for your geli prints, I have one, and it is a learning curve! I love yours, and will use them in crafting. I'll add to the card and send it home!
Response: Thanks for rating. Yes, it is a curve. I've watched lots of videos and some look like fails and some look fabulous. Even the fails can be used for something. I have the most trouble with trying to transfer an image. Happy Swapping! ♥
Comment: Thank you. Yes, the gelli plate is addicting. I love that you are trying new art techniques. I use things like the netting my avocados come in, or leaves. Have fun. And try not to stay up too late. ;D
Response: Thanks for rating! I stayed up to do a Dirty Pour. Oh, my! I'm into my paint for the time being. Lol
Comment: Oh what a cute note! love the little mer-people! Even though I don't have TV I watch Amazon Prime stuff. I can't stand commercials, and it's like I'm 100% on or off, so background doesn't work. I can do music in the background, but podcasts I have to be paying attention to or it's not worth it either!
Response: I recently have been using Amazon and youtube tutorial videos. I def have to be paying attention. Thx for rating, glad you like the mers! =)
Comment: Interesting card thanks. There is a video somewhere on-line I saw someone had posted an old film with someone had filmed his ride thru San Francisco on a trolley back before the earthquake. They had also colorized it. Amazing to see what life was really like back 100+ years ago.
Response: Hmmm, maybe I will check that out. I Love historical stuff like that. Thx for the rating!
Comment: Such adorable bunny items (including the cross-stitch card!!!) I absolutely love how you put the stickers on the outside of the envelope - I've never seen anyone do that before and it's super cute...thank you so much!! :-)
Response: Awwww, thanks, glad it made you smile! TY for the rating! ♥
Comment: Miss Paula thanks so much for the fruity pebbles card! what an awesome piece of cardboard! we love taking peeps and making colored rice krispies treats.. yum!!!! thanks so much! have a great day!

Comment: Looking forward to adding another layer!! Lots of inspiring extras enclosed. Thank you!! I just found your note and appreciate your reading it. Spread the word and save a life. Went to a funeral 4 days ago for a 16 year old that lived across the street. David and Chance played together. Suspected Choking Game victim. DH and I went to visit and sobbed the whole time. We had to leave. You are a sweet daughter to take your Mom. Hugs and blessings to you!!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and comment. I try to stay aware of what the kids are doing and have conversation about it. Prayers for your neighbors. ♥
Comment: I LOVE this postcard - ah, "let them eat cake"! :) I don't mind Zazzle cards at all - I don't understand why people dislike them, but honestly, I enjoy what people WRITE on the cards often times more than the cards themselves, but I LOVE this card!! :) Have a great day!
Response: Thanks for the lovely rating! I thot it was your style, and I agree I like the back better than the front sometimes! = )
Comment: I received this beautiful card and am so nervous about adding to it, it's really gorgeous! And thank for the extra coloring postcard, it's great!
I know Rohnert Park quite well, my best friend lives in Novato and we're always going on road trips together, Petaluma and Santa Rosa (and Rohnert Park!) I'm actually going to visit her for a week next month. I can't wait!!!
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating. I'm sure whatever you add to the card will be great. Have a fun time with your friend! My Mom lived in Novato for years......
Comment: Yep! Definitely not your usual pc, but right up my alley as I often carry a clown nose in my pocket (especially when travelling in foreign countries). It's a great ice breaker! Thank you very much for the card and for sending it blank, in an envie, just the way I prefer.
Response: Ha ha...... Thanks for rating so promptly! â™¥
Comment: Ho ho ho hello,
Thank you for the awesome PC. That was neat the way you did the tree and jewel on the reverse side. Great idea. I've never tried La Croix water. Maybe one of these days.
Response: Merry Christmas and thanks for rating! I love this swap and seeing all the different ideas people have!
Comment: Thanks for the fun pass-and-paste. I did some enameling. I started with cloisonne, which I now realize was like flying a jet plane before I had my pilot's license. Ha! I wonder if you use to live near where I did...I was in Woodridge/Downers Grove for years.
Response: Thanks for the rating. I worked in Naperville and lived in Aurora/St. Charles. Hubby grew up in Bensenville. I went to a craft faire last weekend and now I am thinking of trying some wine bottle slumping/glass fusing in the kiln. Lol
Comment: Thank you for your fun & well-designed "Skellerella", Paula. So perfect for the season! She lost a foot in transit. (Maybe met another ax-wielding corpse during her travels!) Happy Halloween.
Response: Thanks for the rating! The one I received lost an eye, lol. I only used one light coat of mod podge over the body, I always wonder how the machines will treat collage cards, but we all love naked versus an envie......She must have been in a fight with some other corpse! = )
Comment: Hi Miss Paula! Thanks so much for the Halloween card and nice extras. I loved it all! You are so lucky. I don't get more than one or two Trick-or-Treaters where I live. I love handing out candy! Have a great Halloween and Trick-or-Treat night!
Response: Glad you like the card! I am looking forward to seeing the kids! = )
Comment: Perfect PC for me as I like b/w photos and Bob Cats and Lynx are my fav big cat. I have seen a bob cat in the city limits of Murfreesboro, TN at an apartment complex. built near the woods. Such cute embellishments you added to the back of PC & a pretty stamp of a lady named Mary. WOW you read my profile and put so much thought into my PC. Thank You !!!!!!!
Response: Thanks so much for the rating and I am glad you enjoyed what I chose. I hope those big kittties stay away from your place! Happy Swapping! â™¥
Comment: Absolutely appreciate the variety of these starter sets! Love checking out your Flickr by the way.., very creative! The flower paper on the 1 2 3 hearts set is gorgeous... p.s. I used the same card sets! Great minds!
Response: Awww, glad you like them, Thanks for the nice comment! And, Thanks for the â™¥.......(=
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard. Yes, layering effects can be interesting. Sometimes even welcome. Today, my ink and paint kept mixing....not the look I wanted lol. I'll try again tomorrow. Hope you have more success.
Response: Thank you for rating and commenting. I kind of like the weird look. I had to get used to it. The tutorial I looked at had me paint flesh tone over her face but I liked the colors better. = )
Comment: Hi Paula! Thank you so much for the great ATC! It's so sweet. Thank you too for the fabulous package - a nice letter and all the extras. How fun that you have a family of corgis!! I had one as a child too. They're fun! XOXO
Response: Thank you for the wonderful comment and rating! Corgis are darling! â™¥
Comment: Hi Miss Paula, this is my first swap in this group and your envie made me so HAPPY! Just love when mail makes you smile big time. Roosje means little rose, we add 'je' in Dutch to words, to tell about size (smaller) or cuteness. I did not get the part about 'roosje vos seamstress'?
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating, glad you smiled! Roosje Vos was a famous Dutch seamstress who around 1900 was an activist who worked for labor protection for working women. I wondered were you named for her? lol â™¥
Comment: You really gave me a good belly laugh. Such happy, frun mail! Thank fyou for the adorable kitty card with ears! And the back is sooooo frun too. I just love, love, luv it all. The glitter is a day brightner and should be renamed happy dust. lol The faux stamp is soooooooo pretty! And all the little extras! What else is cool is that the postcard is from another country to boot! Its all so wonderful! x
Response: Wellll, that's because you are so wonderful!! Thanks for the comment and the lovely rating. I am glad I could share that fun PC with someone who appreciates it! = ) â™¥â™¥
Comment: Loved the card and the bunny and egg flags you sent with it. Love the Lawn Fawn paper, i love their plaid collection.
Response: I just discovered Lawn Fawn at Christmas. I had heard people say they liked it but it was never available in my local stores and now they are almost always sold out. I was able to get some cute holiday stamps but I really want the mailbox. Thanks for rating, glad you enjoy! â™¥ = )
Comment: Thank you for the sweet Easter ATC. And also for all of the goodies. The extra bunny ears brought an 'Awe, cute' smile from me. The envelope was decorated so cute too. I hope you have a blessed day.
Response: Glad you are enjoying what I sent! Thanks for the wonderful rating. I got 50 sets of ears from someone and had to share! Needless to say, I am trying to put ears on everything! Lol = )
Comment: An interesting beginning....a challenge for sure. It will take a bit of thinking to know what to add. Thanks for the coloring cards. The LWML (women's group of Lutheran churches) makes similar cards available on their website.
Response: Thanks for the heart rating! The Collaborations always have me thinking which way to go......=)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely note. I apologize for the late rating, but I apparently misplaced a stack of mail and this swap was in it. Anyhow, thanks again. I enjoyed reading about your new doll stamp. Haha, 'stiffneck78' comes from my early days of being a rocker. My neck would be stiff the next day from dancing and head banging. haha, sigh, that was such a long time ago, but the nickname has followed me-so here I am! Good day to you, Paula.
Response: Thank you so much for the nice rating! Love the username explanation! = )
Comment: Hi Miss Paula! TY for the lovely postalette, insert and share! Yep, not only does my part of IL do a ton of business in MO - the hubby, son and I all work over there! LOL! That is so sad about the twister and how some areas just seem to get hit so much - Torneado Alley - that is the only bummer thing about spring! That is funny that you said you would take an earthquake over a twister - when we were visiting in FL, they said they would take a hurricane over a twister, so... Thanks again for making my day and for joining the swap! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks, Vicky, for the lovely rating and comment. It was a cute swap. I got a nice vintage postalette. = )
Comment: Thank you for the delicious and adorably-adorned (from the glitter to the array of bids and kitties! *swoon*) Klondike Choco Taco card, Paula! I loved the traditional bars as a kid and will have to give this a try :) As for Mardi Gras, I am thinking of finally going to experience Chewbacchus this weekend, since the original Chewbacca himself, Peter Mayhew, is the guest of honor. I like the idea of parades, seeing the floats, and hearing the excellent marching bands, but I am not a fan of the smoking, drinking, drugs, traffic, etc. that accompany the parades. Hope you are having a good start to the week and a wonderful Valentine's Day as well â™¥
Response: Yippee! Glad you like the card. I hope you can go see Chewy and hear those Marching bands! I agree that I am not interested in the celebratory shenanigans! Thanks for the rating! = ) Happy Valentines Day!
Comment: I could tell you read my profile by what all you sent. Thank you, thank you for it. What you sent was perfect. I take it you made the cute pink envie with hearts punched in them. I was home sick from work and your envie, made my day.
Response: Aww, glad to hear I gave you a happy mail day! Yes, I just got a Memory Makers Envelope Punch board and i was trying it out. Hope you are well now, Enjoy the holiday!
Comment: Thank you! Thanks for sending a new be to start, too, I currently have several out there and really didn't want to start another for myself yet ðŸµï¸thanks also for all punchies! They help me a lot because I can not draw. Thanks also for the PC!
Response: You are very welcome, Thanks for the nice rating and comments! = )
Comment: Your postcard is lovely! I think those children might actually have been illustrated by the Campbell Kids illustrator! At least it definitely has the same style. Thanks so much - happy Valentine's Day!
Response: I agree they look very similar. Glad you like it! Enjoy your holiday! = )
Comment: Thanks for swapping. Hope you had fun with this! I don't understand clear envies as my PO would never let me not get the stamp cancelled!
EDIT: aha! the stamp on the *outside* of the clear envelope! makes much more sense, I could do that.
Response: Did I not put the stamp on the outside? With the clear, you have to put the stamp on the outside so they can cancel it. Thank you for promptly rating.
Comment: Wow, thank you sooo much for this groovy postcard! I just knew this was going to be a snowy, candy swap! I love it! And you mailed it in clear, crinkly plastic. Mmmmmm. lol The front AND back are so snowy frun! THANK YOU!!!!
Response: Coolio! Glad you liked it! Hope you are keeping warm over there....we're a bit chilly here but the big rain has stopped! Keep Calm and Swap on! = )
Comment: Thank you for the note and extras :) have a good trip to Oregon and Washington! Oregon js very beautiful as well. Let me know which part of washington you visit :) itll probably be Vancouver because it's just over the bridge from.Portland. safe travels!
Response: Thank you for the nice rating. You guys are getting some cold, snowy weather. I like the Pacific NorthWest but I really love the Bay Area in Sunny Cali!
Comment: I love my elfish paper doll! It is so sweet, and I really like it where it is, so she may live there! Thanks for the extra paper dolls, too!
Response: Awww, glad you like her ! I used the washi so you could remove her, I hope you play with her ...... I had fun posing her in funny positions ! You can make her different clothes if you are so inclined . = )
Comment: I love my mermaid/ fisher junker jane doll. She is wonderful. You made my day. I also loved her buddy the sea horse. I am thrilled with the swap.
Note: don't wait until you are 65. If it hurts now you need to get it replaced. I had to have one redone into a reverse after a year because I had no rotator cuff and I still have an arm that works on both sides!
Have a wonderful holiday.
Response: Thank you for rating so nicely and promptly! I am happy = ) you like your doll, Yay!
Also, thanks for the encouragement about the shoulder, it hurts all the time and I only have 50% range of motion.......
Comment: What a beautiful necklace, Paula! How did you make it? I'd love to try my hand at this. I abandoned this treasure on a plane going to Los Angeles, CA....I saw an attractive lady in her 20s holding it....Thanks for a great swap
Response: It was a vintage wooden domino. A little glue and stuff.....voila! Thanks so much for the abandonment! Thank you for the lovely rating also! = ) Made my day!
Comment: Thanks Miss Paula! I'm looking forward to doing my section & sending it home.
Also, thanks for the extra stamped images. It's fun to see what other stamps people have.
We had to say goodbye to my dear horse Maverick last month ðŸ˜¢ But I appreciated you including your well wishes for him. I however loved hearing your Mitzi has lived such a long life as well. â¤ï¸
Response: Awww, sorry about Mav. People often ask if we are 10 yrs. off with Mitzi's age. She keeps weight on and isn't grey. We have her AQHA papers to prove she was born in 1980, the same year as my oldest daughter. Those foundation Quarter Horses were bred well. I'm glad you got to enjoy Maverick for as long as you did. Thanks for rating. = )
Comment: Thank you for sending. You sent my own card back to me with only one empty space, so I'm going to fill in that space and send the card to my granddaughter. Thank you for the extras! I love Steampunk Spells!
Response: Space cadet me! Sorry about that. I usually see what card is next in line to move, and I didn't pay attention to who started it! Thanks for the rating! = )
Comment: My ID (chandlerguera) is because I'm light-skinned/blonde plus my city name. I've been called Guera for years. My hubby calls me that every day! Thanks for the wonderful spaghetti sauce chunk, decorated for Halloween!!
Response: Thanks for the rating, and the explanation! I always wonder about user names......= )
Comment: What a lovely bunch of stamped images! They are all wonderful!!! Love the Let them eat Cake and Ice Cream stamp! Too cute! I always laugh at the Marie Antoinette "Let them Eat Cake" story! I also love the tattoo, the Gibson girl, and the Day of the Dead stamps as well! Thank you so much!
I love Conway! It's been my home for 26 years! Russellville is wonderful as well. ATU was just named the safest college in the State of Arkansas! Isn't that wonderful! My brother and his wife live in Russellville. They both attended Tech and his wife is getting her masters now.
Response: Glad you like the images! Thanks for the rating and the comment. i almost moved to Arkansas near Lake Dardenelle but I love my California weather. = )
Comment: Thanks for the interesting Camel PC ðŸ˜‹ I really hope smoking gets more and more unpopular until it's a super rare thing. It's hard to believe that in our grandparents' day nearly everyone smoked and it was cool. Yuck
Response: I agree....Yuck! Thanks for the great rating and commentary! = )
Comment: Hi Paula - Thank you so much for the awesome Pin Up Girl PC. It really came out cute and you used one of my favorite girls! I hope you had fun with the swap. Thanks for joining. Take Care -Vanne
Response: Aww, glad you like it! Collage is one of my favorite things.......Thanks for the nice rating! = )
Comment: Thank you for the cool Chocolate World card! I am a lover of factory tours, and it saddens me deeply that the Oakdale Hershey factory stopped offering tours in the wake of 9/11. I have learned that more recently, they vacated that town completely, & shifted operations to Mexico. There's still Jelly Belly in Vallejo (I enjoy the tour, if not the beans). :) Thanks again!
Response: Aww, that's too bad about Hershey. I lived in Chicago in the 90's and it saddens me that I did not visit. Always thought I'd get back to it., Jelly Belly I am a repeat visitor! Mrs. Grossman's Sticker factory is right down the road from me, it's a fun one. Budweiser is right next to Jelly Belly, good tour. Thanks for the rating, glad you like the PC I picked for you!
Comment: Thank you for the stamp book pass on! And Miss Paula, idk what kind of magic you possess getting this to me with "R'ville"!!! I literally live next door to rogersville too!!!ðŸ˜‚ AND the postman didn't yell at me (for once!) Magic I tell ya!!!
Response: Ha ha........It's nice when the postal gods are in our favor! I got in the habit of sending my cousin mail to B'ham, Alabam....lol, and I thought I would get creative with your addy! I get attitude for some of the stuff I send out here, too. Que sera sera = ) Thx for rating and remarking!
Comment: Thank you for the collaboration card and all the thoughtful extras you included. My initial cloissone project was successful in the end. I made 2 pair of drop earrings with an Egyptian revival lotus pattern so far.
Response: You are very welcome and thank you for the nice rating! The cloissone sounds lovely, maybe someday I will try it! = )
Comment: Hi Paula, from Paula! ;) Thank you for the really fun ATC and all the beautiful extras--they are really special and creativity-sparking. :) I enjoyed your chatty note too in the awesome doll-stamped envie. Love it all!! This was a great swap and I hope I will get you as my partner again!
Response: Awww, you are so kind! Glad you like the swap! Thanks for the lovely comment and rating! = )
Comment: Thanks, I'll have fun adding to the this card. And I'm so-so-so(!) excited about the potential for the pink fluffy yarn in a tiny knit. Of course I love the motryoshkas, what a fun idea! Part 2: Thanks for the 2nd postcard and extras. Oh boy, you really outdid yourself!
Response: Thank you for the great comment and rating! The Russian Dolls were wonky, I realize, but I wanted to send you the pattern. I have a shoulder issue so I just kinda scribbled them. When you do a cute background and take time, they are the cutest ATC's! I have a little series of them. Glad you like the pink fuzzy! = )
Comment: Hi Miss Paula! Sorry for the late rating - I commented on your profile but did not rate - yikes and here I was fussing about non-raters or tracking down ratings!! I hope you will forgive me!! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: No problem, I hope for grace when I'm forgetful,too! The PC was from a book and the info was in it, postmarked and I think the guy was a serviceman stationed at The Presidio sending to his girl at home. She never used a single card. Kept it as a keepsake. I am sharing it little by little. =)
Comment: I love your cherry blossom tree! Keep drawing, you definitely have a talent for it. Practice, practice, practice! Do a bunch of zentangles. They will help your hand eye coordination. I am sorry that your sister has to leave Alaska. When I was moving up here, so many people came up to me and said, even after 20 years, they still pined for Alaska! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are so kind! Thank you for the encouragement! Thanks for the nice rating, also. Alaska is special, people do love it there! = )
Comment: Sorry for the late rate. I thought I had rated you when the card arrived because I was so happy with everything in it. I can''t wait to color the zentangle PC. One of my dogs is Rosie so the Wishbone bookmark is very appropriate. I will send the card home and start a new one.
Response: No worrries. Thanks for the rating and the nice comment. = )
Comment: What a great card to work on! Thanks for passing it on! Love the Snoopy stickers so much! It's so hard to get snoopy stuff here so these are cherished! Chelle is a good name for a cat...no matter how it's pronounced :-)
Response: = ) Thanks for the comment and the rating! She is a nice cat with a crooked little tail......Have fun adding to the PC!
Comment: Yay! The masterboards are great - my fav, of course, is the Halloween one. Thank you for the great extras!
Response: Thank Goodness they finally arrived! I did that Halloween one just for you, but of course, AFTER I sent, I have been coming across all kinds of 'Bat' things......I will keep you in mind for bat stuff now! Thanks for the great rating! = )
Comment: Thank you for the doodly card! The piece must've taken time and effort, but I agree, it's not what I'd call proper art. How fun that you have Finnish roots! I have few relatives in the States but have never visited there.
Response: With an un-exciting front on these PC's, it's all about the back and the message anyway! Hyvaa paivan jatkoa! = )
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! Wow, I haven't seen Purple Rain since it came out - I don't remember much of it - what did you think? I've never seen any of the Divergent movies, The Maze Runner is the only dystopian future movie I've seen. I'll check it out.
Response: Thanks for the rating! I liked both movies. i like the theme of Divergent. The Prince movie made me think of his life and what he overcame and how greatly gifted he was. = )
Comment: I really enjoyed the Divergent movies! I read the books before the movies came out, so there is always that comparison and I was disappointed in the movies in some places (that is how it always seems to go though). I think if I had seen the movies first I would have had no disappointments at all. They were really well done and such a fun concept.
Response: I like this series much more than the Hunger Games and similar stories. Thanks for the rating! = ) The Book is ALWAYS better than the book! lol
Comment: Thank you for the stamp book and the cute goodies! But... I actually sent you this book last time... My page is right before yours! Lol! It's ok, I'll just pass it on!
Response: Ha. I didn't pay attention obviously. I know the goal is one stamp per person per book but, I have received several where I was stamping for the 2nd time because so few people have been playing. Well, next round you will have a book ready to send out immediately, as long as I am not your partner, ha-ha.......... Thanks for the great rating, happy you like the extras! = )
Comment: The postcard is really cute. I've already added to it and have it ready to go out on the next round. : ) Thank you for the extras I love the yarn..... I'm so sorry to hear about your mothers passing. My mom was my best friend so I fully understand your pain. A part of you will always miss her but in time you do stop crying every time you think of her. At least on the average day. Holidays and birthdays will always be hard. Along with doing the things alone that before you used to do always together. There are a few things I still avoid doing because it depresses me.If you ever need to talk just message me. And thank you for your offer to send me some of her doll making things. I would be honored to have and make use of them.
Response: Thank you for the heartfelt comment and nice rating. Also for the kind offer to talk. = ) I will send you a little something as I am going to be sorting and sharing her stuff for some time, there is so much. Thanks again for your kindness.
Comment: Paula, Thank you so much for my Wonderful Button Bird!!! It is going to look great with my wall collage..Thanks also for the fun bird cut out, they will be awesome for the other blocks I am working on!!! :)
Response: Great! Glad I did it correctly. ha ha.........Thanks for the nice rating and comment! = )
Comment: Yes, Miss Paula, it is fun that you are my partner lots of times :) Thanks for the card to work on and thanks for the little file folders. I have just learned about Bible Verse cards and am having fun making them. When I get one completed now I have some little files to put them right in!! :) Have a great day!
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating! I am wondering about your Bible verse cards, I have many, just plain, typed out on index cards. Are yours fancy?
Comment: Hi Paula :-) . . . I've GOT to be more careful!! Lately I have been haphazardly laying mail down on my desks areas (yep, more than one desk), and occasionally something gets covered up. Luckily, I also often have to look through my many piles of papers to find something, then I sometimes uncover something that wasn't supposed to get covered up. So, I happily found your postcard, and I don't think it has been too long since I received it, maybe a week. Still, I appologize for not getting to rating this right away. . . . . So, cool! You have two consecutive places in my larger montage I'll be making when I finally have all twelve of them, positions 3 and 4. And you may be sending me more in the coming months, who knows? I see you went with markers this time. I am also choosing to use different mediums for my circles every month. Thanks for another Kandinsky Circles postcard. Perhaps you'll get one from me sometime.
Response: You are very welcome. I think my next one will be acrylic paint. I like this swap because it pushes me out of my comfort zone! I will try to keep in mind if we are partnered again to make something different. Thanks for the lovely rating! = )
Comment: Thank you, Paula, for the great swap, from your snoopy comic strip decorated envelope, to the postcard and little extras for pocket letters. And I LOVED those two cute little file folders! Thank you so much for bringing a smile to my day!
Response: You are very welcome! Glad you like everything! Thanks for the great rating and comment! = ) â™¥
Comment: Hi Miss Paula! Been fighting breast cancer honey...just found your very cool card while searching for something else. So thankful I found it! Finish chemo in July, then I'm off to New Orkeans to celebrate! Cheers! Theresa
Response: Thanks so much for the rating, Dear. I will believe for the Best possible outcome for you! Celebrate, you are an Overcomer, you got this! â™¥
Comment: Thank you Paula, I love foil and paris,which made me smile when I saw your addition! Thanks for the extra's too, I'll use your foil to bling something up! Thanks for the decorated envie too,that makes swapping fun,when you take the time to decorate your envie!
Response: You are very welcome. If you want more foil. let me know. I have a big roll of both gold and silver. Thanks for the rating and the comment! = ) â™¥
Comment: Hi Paula :-)
I love your Kandinsky circles. You used a lot of colors which always is a favorite for me. I know what you mean about your struggle to escape the bounds of perfection and symmetry. I have made a pointed effort in the last couple of years to be more spontaneous in my art because I also love the freer spirit in the art of other people.
Response: Very well said! Thanks for the rating. I'm going with acrylics and metallics next round. And, no perfect circles! = )
Comment: So! Now I see what this traveling book project looks like! Thanks so much for the timely mailing, great ATC backs, ATC-sized envelope and the "articulated doll thingy". Gotta study up on that....
Response: Thanks for the quick rating! The doll, you decorate and cut her out, attach with tiny brads. You can fit her on an ATC. The Rubber stamp swap is fun but you must be patient and keep playing. Happy Swapping! â™¥
Comment: it arrived!! I was starting to get worried! Thanks for the gorgeous postcard too :)
Response: Thanks for the rating, glad you like the PC! USA to Australia usually doesn't take so long but the postal service seems kind of slow recently. Happy it arrived, this is not a swap one would like to be lost! Yikes!
Comment: I'll have to keep an eye out for some Scooby Snacks for Gulliver! I'm sure he'd love them; he pretty much eats anything! He's a mixed breed, a bit like a border collie...very smart and high energy!
Response: Awww, I bet he's cute! Thanks for the rating! = ) â™¥
Comment: What a delightful card - and such a cool stamp! It would be fascinating to learn more about your grandfather. Do you have any of the photos he took or the name of the studio? Thanks for the card! <3
Response: Thanks for the rating! Yes, we have a few pictures of the studio front, it was upstairs on a main street. The window said, A.W. Pierce. â™¥
Comment: I absolutely LOVED this over sized PC. Thanks so much. I've been to Scottish games...and I CAN trace my ancestors back to Scotland. The Alaska trip has been on my bucket list for years. Glad to hear you had a good time.
Response: GOODY! I have a few Scotland PC's, I love to wait for the right recipient for certain ones. Thanks for the rating, glad I hit a home run with this swap! = ) â™¥
Comment: Hi Paula! Got your book today! Hmm, how I picked my name! "hushpad" is a character from my favorite book, Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams! "witch" because I am Wiccan! Thank you for the coloring page!
Response: Mystery solved! Omigosh, looked up your book and so cute! Loved and laughed about the kitties names! Thanks for the nice rating and introduction to a new book! Too bad it isn't a series.........â™¥
Comment: YOU are amazing and have touched my heartâ€¦. I love the POSTCARD and the fact that I will get it backâ€¦â€¦wow!!! HUGS and thank you thank you thank you and thanks for the other postcards too I need to get back to postcrossingâ€¦. HUGS
Response: Awwww, You are so sweet, You Super Swapper! It is fun getting back these little works of Art! Thanks for the lovely comment and rating! â™¥â™¥â™¥ = )
Comment: MIss Paula! What a wonderful idea! A "collaboration paper doll"! So clever! I think the one with the net stockings needs a "naughty" face! Or a skull since I am partial to them! Thank you so much! And also thank you for the stamped images! I see more opportunities to use my skull stamp! Halloween went by too quickly...
Response: You are so kind! Thank you for the nice comment and rating! This was a great swap and you are a wonderful partner! = ) â™¥
Comment: Hi Paula, thanks for the book to work on and pass along.Extreme thanks for the Garfield things!! I am going to wear one of the name labels and put that my granddaughter can call me Nonna. She will get a charge out of that! Happy Holidays to you also!!
Response: How cute! I have all kinds of things and I love it when I get a partner who will enjoy what I send. Thanks for the sweet rating, Nonna! = ) â™¥
Comment: Hi Paula, I love these swaps too. I will enjoy working on this fall one you sent!! Loved all the extra papers you sent. The tiny holly, stripes, and dots will look wonderful on a big paper pieced rubber stamped snow man that I use. :)
Response: Oh, goody! I tried to think ahead and the Christmas swaps are coming! Thanks for the nice comment and rating.....= ) â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thank you! The envelope was wonderfully covered and decorated, good job! So interesting to hear that you have family in Finland. Celebrating Halloween is still very new and small scale here, but in time I will find use for the things you sent inside the envie :)
Response: Thank you for the nice comment and rating! = )
Comment: Hello! I love your black-light gels. And great chunk. I just noticed the Halloween washi on the front. There are also two dots of something (glue?). Did you have something else on there that might have come off in transit? Maybe the FBI decided that they didn't like it? :)
Response: I thought they might machine it. It was colored wiggly Halloween animal eyes. Sometimes they make it, sometimes they don't. It is because of you I like Beer boxes! Thanks for the rating! = ) â™¥
Comment: My husband picked up the mail and was going through it. He sw this card and said: "I want to see this! I heard it's good!" I had to explain to him that it wasn't a current ad for a locl production! Funny! Thank you!
Response: Ha Ha, that's funny. Thanks for the rating! = ) â™¥
Comment: Thank you Miss Paula for the lovely envelope you sent this PC in, addy on the back was perfect. I'm not sure what I can add to this card...maybe some more sparkle? :) I was born in San Francisco and have a fondness for that area.
Response: I Love The City and the Big Red Bridge! Thanks for rating promptly, Glad you like the envie! I've just started addressing the back so people can use them in journals and stuff....= )
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful package!!! At first I thought it was for a decorate your envelope because it was so beautiful, then I opened it up and saw my wonderful pass & paste and simply inspiring extras. I can't wait to put your envelope in my mail art journal!
Response: Awwwww, thank you! So glad it made you happy! = ) Thanks for the very nice rating and comment! â™¥
Comment: everything was so lovely! I adored your little act on the envie and the postcard you made! I chuckled about the "ghost photographer" because I've been one also. The extra postcards you included were wonderful as well. Such a beautiful little package in a wonderful envelope. thank you so much!
Response: Awww, thanks so much for the glowing comment and rating! Glad you like it! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Wow! You are so sweet to start a PC for me!!! I can't wait to pass it on! :D And of course I'll finish up yours and send it home. ^^ Adorable mini file folder too! I need to find more of those!
Response: Thanks for the nice comment and prompt rating! I am enjoying these pass & paste swaps.....= ) â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: hey Paula, your, postcard arrived today and made me laugh, a total success! I love the irreverence of it--not everything has to be beautiful...Many thanks! Ya, plus it was well executed, I always appreciate that..!
Response: Whew.......Thanks so much! I was hoping you would appreciate the humor! = ) â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Hay girlie! Ultra groovy card!!! Colourful & buZy just how I like 'em'. Just look at that 7 stamp. Coming to San Andreas? Awh, I wish I was gonna be home we must get together for fun. But whats in San Andreas? You must try the Patch which is a groovy little deli. Have you been in the local art gallery/gift shop? I luv that little place. Where on earth do you go?
Response: That 7 was just for you! My godson lives in San Andreas, I go there to visit people and shop at Treat's...lol. I actually can't believe how Angel's has grown, go there for Mexican food. Copper growing, too, I hear u got about a 1000 more people there! Love Jamestown, too, of course. My bestie lived in S.A. for 35 yrs. so I've been up there a lot. Stay cool! Thanks for the groovy rating! = ) â™¥â™¥â™¥

Response: Had a heat wave, Tomato plants are really taking off! Can hardly wait for my first tomato Sammy! â™¥ Thanks for the nice rating! = )
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Frida card! And yessss, go Giants! I'm a die-hard fan. The last two months have been frustrating so far but I have hope! I also love that you love Ray Bradbury! Hardly anyone I know has heard of him. *high five*
Response: Thanks for the great comment and rating! â™¥â™¥â™¥ #35 Cutie Crawford
Comment: Hi Paula - I received your letter today. I hope that I don't disappoint you as I am not very creative. I will try to do a good job starting out your postcard, then the real artists can take over. Happy Swapping! pobuffy PS: Thank you also, Paula, for the playing cards. A girl can never have too many cards.
Response: Awwww, have confidence! We are all Artists! I'm sure I will love whatever you make for me! Thanks for the rating! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I love how you make your cards look so nice. When I try to decipher what you did, it's something simple like "nice handwriting, and writing the swap name down the center as the PC divider with some dots. And write the address so it looks a little curvy." Sounds easy, but when *I* try it it looks bad. Good to hear from you, and sounds like some good news!
Response: I try....lol. I've been trying to cram as much fun as I can into my busy life! Thanks for the sweet rating! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Wow, that Haagen Daz peppermint bark ice cream looks great. I had no idea there was such a thing. I might have to keep an eye out for that this year. Target is already pushing the holiday flavor coffee creamers!
Response: We've had Christmas out for a month already. It gets earlier and earlier every year. Try those ice creams if you find them, they are tasty! Thanks for the rating and for hosting! â™¡â˜…â™¡â˜…â™¡â˜…â™¡
Comment: I'd love to know where you got the awesome stamp you used on the back of the postcard. Thanks, and I prefer more sophisticated icecream as well. :)
Response: Everyone asks about that stamp. I love it. I got it about 15 years ago at a garage sale. I have no idea who made it, it is an old one. I'd watch ebay for postcard stamps, there is usually a variety of them for sale. Thanks for the nice comment and rating! = ) â˜…â™¡â˜…â™¡â˜…â™¡â˜…
Comment: I love the PC you sent -- bright and cheery, just like a snack package should be! I really love the colorful ink you use; it really makes me want to get some gel pens, since the colors stand out so well against the cardboard. Thank you!
Response: Yes! I started with just a white pen then added other colors to my collection. I got them specifically for the brown cardboard. Thanks for the rating and comment! = ) â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the postcard...love the extra details. I could waste an entire day away in Powells, but sadly haven't been there for a while. Might have to make it a point to get downtown within the new couple of weeks.
Response: I, too, could spend all day af Powells! Thanks for rating. = )
Comment: Paula, I have heard so much about Big Foot and have bought PCs with his image, but for you to actually see tracks and then his family - WOW! I guess it's time for me to go hiking in Arizona to find him and his kin. Glad you made it out alive to tell the tale! :)
Response: Thank you for the comment and the rating! Believe me, it was the experience of a lifetime! = )
Comment: You know me too well...lol! A pin up girl and vintage style. This is by far the best altered bingo card I have EVER received and I love it! Thank you for sharing your amazing artwork with me. Sending you many air hugs & hearts!!!!
Response: You are sooo sweeet! When I create for you I know I can safely make what I will enjoy myself because we have similar likes! Thanks for the nice ( blush ) comment and rating! = ) â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: Great tag-love all the elements-cute little bottle with beads and the wonderful packaging and themed things you sent with it. I missed July for some reason so have been looking at my June mermaid all this month too! Glad to have a new one to look at for August. Thanks for swapping and for the extras. I would do private swap with you if you would set it up. So I can get my missing month and you could get yours.
Response: Thanks for the comment and rating, so glad you liked your package! I would love to swap for that missing July Patriotism tag, I'll get back to you in a few weeks when my life calms down! = ) â˜…â™¡â˜…â™¡â˜…â™¡â˜…
Comment: WoW Miss paula its gorgeous! I just loooove it. Isnt that cute how you made a decorative space for the stamp. And I love your post rubber stamp at the top too. I will treasure it forever. Oh, and I went to the Artistamp workshop in San Fran for my birthday a few months ago and you sent to the Ex postal facto. I'll look that up. THANK YOU! x
Response: Glad you like it. We must swap again, my other choice for your pc was a pin up girl and I knooooooowww you'll love that! Stamped images, I want your doll heads! Muahhhh! = ) â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡

Response: Some of my favorite chunks have been sweet treats, hmmmmmm. I wonder why? Glad you like the pc, I will surely check out that little flower! Thanks for the nice rating and comment! â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: Thanks! I love the muppets :-) The tape was badly damaged, so I put it off. Did you put the postcardstamp yourself on the backside? It's a beautiful one!
Response: Thanks for rating, glad you like it! Yes, I have the rubber stamp of postcard. I know the problem with the paper tape, it doesn't stay in place. Thanks for the comment. Glad you like Kermit! = ) â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: I'll bet you were quite excited when this swap was posted! You had the perfect card!
Really nice job. Thanks! I hope the girls are doing well. :-) As a funny side note, I visited SF in the 80s and thought I saw the Big Red Bridge. What we were actually looking at was the Oakland Bay Bridge. Doh! I was pretty disappointed. I did get to go back about five years ago and saw the real thing. Now I understand why Tony Bennett left his heart there. LOL
Response: What a funny bridge story! Thanks for the nice comment and rating. The girls are great! I do love San Francisco! = )
Comment: I LOVE the Frida spool! Thank you so much! It's such an original idea - very cute. You should join the Frida group - it's a lot of fun. Thanks for the Frida and Day of the Dead images too!!Awesome swap!
Response: Glad you like it! I wanted to do something different. I am thinking of joining the Frida group, I do like her, a lot! Thanks for the nice rating and comment!! = ) â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: WOW! Paula, I love this postcard and all the details you added! I too suffer allergies, so sorry to hear you're getting hit hard - this year seems bad for allergies. Thank you so much, I love the little paper piecing you did on the back too - super cute!
Response: Thanks for the great rating and comment! It was a fun project.......= )

Comment: Thanks for the dog treat card. We are not owners as the little boy is allergic but we're hoping he outgrows it. As for the weather...it is supposed to warm up then get cold with snow again. Sigh...
Response: Hopefully a warm Spring is right around the corner! Thanks for the rating and response! = )
Comment: Your postcard is amazing. You put so much work into it. Wow! I especially like the "Let me know if you don't receive this" . I would love to have a stamp like that. Do you remember where you got it?

Comment: A great blow-out of paper! Thank you : ) I have already incorporated some of the images you sent in a cut/paste collage postcard.

Response: Glad you like it! I like to send a little of what I think is you and a little of me! = ) â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: Miss Paula! That poor kitty! This is definitely a weird card... I've been showing it to all my cat loving neighbours. Too funny.
And I learned a new word from the text on the card... I love words but I don't see myself inserting "retromingency" into the conversation any time soon. LOL!
Thanks so much for the great laughs!
Response: Thanks for the great rating and comment! I thought it was comical! = ) â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡

Comment: LOVE the Barbie ATC! ...And the extras, and the notecard you used and the special stamps. Yes, we really should do a private swap sometime. That would be great!

Thank you , thank you, thank you.
Response: Thank you for the nice rating! Glad you like my unusual choice! Because it was 'totally sender's choice' I was free to send something different......= )
Comment: Love the card AND the puppy drawings too! My older son lived in CA for a short time and I've been there a few times and it is absolutely beautiful. I don't mind snow, but wish I had some mountains to view (not a skier - lol). Take care, Annette
Response: Thanks for the nice rating! I always like to acknowledge the 4 leggers! = )

Response: Glad you like my choices! Thanks for the great rating and comment! = )
Comment: thanks so much for the great ATC and extra's. In our area, a chinese auction, is where you buy a certain number of tickets for a certain amt of money, then you put one ticket into a container marked for each gift item, that u are interested in.. if your number is drawn you win the gift.Mostly these are at card parties or craft shows, sometimes charitable events. Happy Swapping!
Response: Thanks for the nice rating! Glad you like what I sent, and thanks for the explanation about the Chinese auctions, sounds fun! = )
Comment: What an amazing and fun package! Well, I'll start with the Kewpie head bottle ~ so CUTE! She really has personality. The extras were all great - the clay faces (love the elfin faces), the bits of nature (really cool for a fairy habitat), the paper dolls (yes, I plan to play with them), and all the funky fibers you used in wrapping. Christmas in May - THANK YOU!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and comment! So glad you like the package-I was hoping you would like the faces! I love Kewpie myself so I was happy to see her mentioned in your profile! = ) â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡

Comment: Miss Paula you must have a TON of energy. Could you please syphon some and bottle it? Must be better for one's health than those Red Bull and similar drinks. Thank for you the just so fun letter to read! I sort of felt like the ball in a pin-ball machine "pinging" around. =D Expect something soonish which discusses horses, among other things. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the extra goodies! Perfect complements to Project Life. :D
Response: Awwww, thanks for the great comment and rating! Glad I could infuse a little happy into your life! = ) â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely postcard - I love cats too, but my whole family has allergies. Never forget that at the end of the day, we will not be measured by financial success or promotions, but by the kindness we show to others. Good luck!
Response: True. It's interesting how one may think their job or status is who they are. We are so much more than a job, a paycheck, or someones wife or mother. Thank you, I hope you enjoy the holidays! = )
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful postcard and for joining my swap! There are a lot of old beautiful homes in Maryland, but some of them can be hard to get to. And when I go out to see them, I just like to look at the outside and never go inside! Happy Swapping!
Response: Glad you like it! I love the old ones in and out! Thanks for the rating! = )

Comment: Thank you for this most excellent parcel of small stuff, Paula! First of all, I love your presentation ~ when I opened the package and saw all those little envies for each of the 10 things, I clapped like a little kid :D Clever use of the paint swatch for your note, too! All the little things are great and will definitely be put to use. Thank you for the Halloweenie stuff too! You were right ~ my gears are spinning for the other swap and some of the things you sent have given me some good ideas.

Would love to do a private swap sometime.
Response: Awww....Thanks for the kind words and the great rating! Glad you liked the PC, I think they are fun! = ) â™¥â™¥
Comment: Lol! Thanks for the laugh. ET was one of my favorite movies when it came out! I insisted on eating a bag of reeces pieces during the movie too because of all the heavy advertising, I'm sure.
Scrabble scares me, I can't spell and I think I have a small vocabulary! (Reading hours everyday never helped me!) But I was usually scorekeeper with any game I played!
Response: Thanks for the comment and the nice rating! My daughter is a Scrabble maniac, her wedding favors are going to be made from scrabble tiles! = )
Comment: Oh, man. Love your card. Love the white ink (again - I gotta get me one of those). Love the label with punched stars and then dots in the center of each one. And then there are "power wave" marks coming out of the label. So simple, and yet so much fun. I never think of stuff like that. >:( I will steal steal steal these ideas!!
Response: Thanks for the nice rating and comment! I like to steal your techniques as well! That card was the first time I used a versa mark pen and embossed with black and white. At first I thot it looked weird, then decided it looked natural enough. I am excited to see what fun ideas people have on my blitz PC's.......= ) BTW>>>One of my favorite swaps!
Comment: OH Paula,, what a wonderful package.. Your dolls are beautiful! with lots of character.and their envelopes are amazing!!!! I so agree that it's nice to be able to interpretate things in different ways.. How boring the world would be if everything were cookie cutter.. LOL! The delicate flower.. WOW... I would love to purchase more if you have an address for them.. I've been looking for fairy stickers and they are PERFECT!.. Thank you so much for all the goodies.. but your dolls deserve 10000 hearts.. Hugs a bunch darlin.. cj

Comment: Thank you for the really sweet ATC. It's perfectly "my cup of tea"! The tuck-ins were also wonderful. I'd love to see a picture of your domino necklaces and pins. The images are great. Thank you for joining the fight against breast cancer!
Response: Glad you like what I sent! Thanks for the comment and rating! = ) â™¥â™¥

Response: PC from a series called 'Fruits' with actual fashion statements by Asian youth. Tin Can Mail stamp from 1998 Redwood City,Ca. The ink is I believe a blend between a mauve and a black, I stamp, don't clean then stamp with a 2nd color! Glad u like! Thanks for rating! = )
Comment: Thank you very much for this lovely card. Other people throw these cardboards away and we can make someone happy with it! I love that.
EgElskaKort is Icelandic (Eg elska postkort = I love postcards, there are some signs upon the "e" and the "o" missing, my I-pad doesn't know that). I''m a huge fan of the Icelandic language. Best wishes from Katrin
Response: Thank you, Katrin, for the nice comment and rating! I do enjoy these cardboard postcards! Happy Swapping! = )

Response: Thanks for the great comment and the nice rating! I'll give the pup some lovin' for you! = )
Comment: LOL, great card... Interesting fact, but I don't think that's so weird, my mom has a bag obsession, and for some reason I have a craft supply obsession. You would not believe all the different craft supplies I just have to buy and never end up using...
Response: I'm with ya, Sister on the craft supplies, also....I have enough to do nothing but art all day long for the rest of my life! I have stuff I don't even know how to use! Someday......= )
Comment: Baha getting the card made me & my husband crack up!! You were pretty bang-on though, but for the age! Im only 23 ;) The age, weight, and even hair is correct! No bangs though, and Im just under 5'3". Thanks for the postcard, made my day!

Thank you once again.
Response: Thanks for the quick rating and the comment! Glad you like the card! = )
Comment: My favorite breakfast food eggs :) YUMMMM ... also How did you shape the hard boiled eggs?? Way cool :)
Response: I used an egg mold-a bento box accessory. Find at Asian stores or ebay...I found mine new in the pkg at a thrift store for .99...yes! You just hard boil your egg, peel while warm, stick in the mold and refrigerate. Then when they were cold I dipped in water with a drop of food coloring. Some of the Bento Box lunches are amazing-you can mold rice also! So fun! Thanks for the great rating! â™¥ = )
Comment: Wow--You did make my day!!! Thank you so much..and I love the Hawaii PC you sent, too..... I also love the stamps...I have a 30 yr old Down Syn. daughter( VERY high functioning) so thru our journey special olympics has became dear to my heart....

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful Alaska card. I love it, and I really do love that you are a supporter of breast cancer. I am a huge fan of it. My husband is a cancer survivor, and participated in his first walk this past August. Thanks again.
Response: Thank You for the nice, quick rating and comment! Wonderful for your hubby......We have a big Relay for Life in our town and our family participates every year. Let's spread the word and kick cancers butt! = )
Comment: Thanks for the GREAT swap package! Love both the ATCs, but esp. the "stamp" one (fun double meaning, excellent image chosen, etc.) Brilliant consistency of color across the two cards. The hedgehog is adorable (and now on my desk). The postage stamps are outstanding -- I didn't have any Russian stamps in my collection before. <3<3<3 PS I am NOT ready for or eagerly anticipating the winter snows!
Response: Thank you so much for the speedy rating and the great comment! Happy Swapping! = )
Comment: Thanks for the card, Miss Paula. I think I'd be a little scared to fly in this plane. My stepdad recently got his pilots license and flew around in a plane like that. I felt horrible since he was so excited to take people for a ride, but I was too terrified to go. :( oh well. thanks again!
Response: Thanks for the quick rating! My family has a rich flying history. My mother used to ride in my Uncle's plane and he would do stunts, like stalling the engine! Yikes! = )
Comment: Wow, Miss Paula...what an over the top swap you sent to me. Even my hubby was impressed and he just doesn't get swap-bot...lol. The box is gorgeous and so me! I couldn't believe all of the extras you sent. I knew you had read my profile and every single item is just fabulous...pin-up girls, Tim Holtz stuff, vintage jewelry, altered journal, fabric that is just exquisite, a new pattern I have never seen, puzzle pieces & tin...the list goes on and on. I am truly indebted to you for being such a thoughtful swapper and I'm so glad you're feeling better!!! Thanks ever so much:) Hugs!!!!!
Response: = ) Awww, Thank You so much! You are the best partner and I so appreciate your patience.......I am glad it was worth your wait! â™¥ (It wasn't difficult at all, btw, I love your profile and we have similar tastes!)
Comment: The postcard arrived today. I see that it took twenty two days to get here. I'm sure it has been some wonderful places. That is a scary amount of time for domestic mail. Thank you.
Response: Holy Moly! A couple days ago I sent something just down the road from me and when I checked the tracker it said it was in Hawaii! Why California to Hawaii and back to Cali? Hmmmmm.......Thanks for sharing that info with me! This is a good reason why some swappers shouldn't get cranky if things are a couple days late.......Good thing you are patient and reasonable!Thanks for the â™¥ rating! = )
Comment: Love the Gorey postcard, which is from a set I actually don't have! Love your very sweet note, and I am flattered. :-) A good book was one of my listed happy things, too. And the stamps are FABULOUS!
â™¥â™¥â™¥ Thanks so much.
Response: I Love hitting a Home Run with a PC! = ) Thanks for the prompt and generous â™¥ rating! So glad you like it! Hope our swapping paths cross again!

Response: Thanks for the speedy â™¥ rating! And, the well wishes! My condition is torture-Art is in my blood! Glad you like the ATC.....= )
Comment: Miss Paula,
Many thank yous for my card. The quote made me laugh as a perpetual graduate student on the liminal track to a Ph.D.! But more than everything, I loved the stamps. Always had a thing for Fuller. And peace through world trade, what a contradiction. You also asked about my name. It matches the first letters of my first and last name, my great grandmother was madge and I'm a bit "mad" myself.
Response: Glad you like it! I used to say I wanted to be a Professional Student! LOL
Comment: I love the vintage valentine postcard! I am going to say that #1 is the lie - you have been on tv several times.
Response: Glad you like! Thanks for the great rating! TV is the truth....Spiders is the lie! My friends always scream for me to eradicate the things when they find them crawling around where they don't belong. Bugs don't bother me! = )
Comment: Thank you! I loved the stamping - it reminds me that I need to brush up on my music theory. :p Your list is very motivational - I keep wondering if happiness truly exists, and I think in your case it does. :)
Response: Ahhh, such a sweet comment! Thank you for the prompt rating, and I will add that Music is a Huge source of Joy to me! = )
Comment: TY for theroad less traveled pc. I love poetry and that is one of the many poems that I like. Also you said the area in the picture wasn't far from me (Rosedown Plantation in St. Francisville, La. ). My Daddy's side of the family live in Louisiana, but this is a town that I'm not familiar with so I don't know if it is near where they live. I really like the stamp also. My town is small so the variety of stamps at our post office is limited, I've really grown to love looking at the many different stamps there are. I'm a fan of My Fair Lady anyway. Bet you didnn't realize you would get a book to ty for the pc, but thanks, suzanne
Response: Thanks, Honey, for the great rating! The town is up North of Baton Rouge. The stamp I bought on Ebay. I have found if I look hard and I am patient, I can buy old stamps at or below face value! Back in 1992-93 the letter rate was 29 cents which is great for the PC's now! = )
Comment: did you notice the typo on the post card it says some of the msot spectacular sunsets in the world. I had to read it twice to make sure it wasn't just my eyes lol. the card is pretty though isn't it. ty suzanne
Response: LOL...It always amazes me how many proofreaders let things get by them! Thanks for the great rating! = )
Comment: Greetings, Paula! Thank you for the wonderful postcard of the red wood! How amazing you used to live in the area I do now!! We haven't been to American Science and Surplus yet, but I have driven by several times! We will definitely have to go now!! We left Vegas because Nick got a job in the Chicago area...and we didn't want to stay int he desert any longer!! Oh yes, Great Harvest Bread Store = amazing!!! Thank you for the great postcard and lovely note. Cheers!
Response: Thank YOU for the rating and the heart! The surplus is great for odd things for art, you must go! = )
Comment: What a gorgeous hand-made postcard-- and tailor-made for me, to boot! :) Thank you. Your poem turned out much better than mine. I ended up with at least half of my words being prepositions and such. I, too, enjoy BJ Hoff's books
Response: Thanks so much for the quick rating and the heart! I always think I'm taking a chance when I do a handmade PC if the receivers profile doesn't specifically say 'I love handmade PC's'......but, I felt I could read your style through your well-filled out profile! Thank you for the lovely comment! = )
Comment: Thank you for the great suggestion on the beautiful Las Vegas night view! My husband is usually not very interested in my mail, but wanted me to write down your tip for the next time we visit Las Vegas!
Response: I hope you get to visit soon, it's a fun city! Thanks for the rating and the heart! = )
Comment: Hi Paula, thank you for the great postcard! The story behind my user name....Let's see. In high school some friends and I spelled our names backwards, and mine is "Ylime", so with "lime" being in there, they started calling me "Lime". So then later on, I got married and my last name is Stroud, and in an effort to make it harder for people to find me, I was playing around with it and did this, "St.Roud". So, I just, over time put together "saintoflimes" as a homage to my name. I hope that makes sense!
Response: Interesting! Thanks for the explanation. And the rating. And the heart!! = )
Comment: Thanks for the card. I went to a wonderful art museum in Salamanca, Spain, that you would love. The collection had beautiful art nouveau and art deco glass and dolls. Many historic dolls I'd never seen, from all over Europe - it was fascinating.
Response: Wow, Deco AND Dolls! Sounds wonderful-Thanks for the rating and the heart! = )
Comment: Loved your letter, how quickly you pick up on likes and habits. That fabric was not only unexspected, it is right down my alley! Love the fruit & vegetables. I did get a laugh off of your profile, you said you worked with the elderly & mental heath people, the older I get, the more I realize that we are one and the same.
Response: Thank you for the prompt rating and the heart! Your comment gave me a laugh out loud moment! = )
Comment: No apology needed ~ I found this PC hysterical and loved it!!! It's not gory at al but rather very comical ~ thanks so much and I loved your Peter Pan ~ he didn't look ugly at all but looked full of mischief which is exactly what Peter Pan enjoyed!! Thanks again for the great yellow PC ~~
Response: You are too kind! I showed my friend and we laughed and laughed and I said 'I hope Tinker has a sense of humor!'....My friend keeps making evil eyed looks at me saying 'Guess who?' Peter Pan! LOL! Thanks SO much for being good natured and for the comment and the heart! = )
Comment: I really love it when someone takes the time to read someone's profile before a swap. It shows they care about the person and not just the swap. Thanks for the pc. Suzanne
Response: Awwww....thanks! I always try to find a PC in my collection that will fit the person-I don't want to send disney to a 'Pooh' hater! LOL At least I can write a little personal note. I like your profile-we did the sears catalog thing, too! Thanks for the nice comment, quick rating and the heart!! = )
Comment: LOL Jersey Shore is a trainwreck... however, I must admit, I do watch it... Mostly because I see someone I know in almost every episode!! Real Jersey Shore is nothing like that.. Considering NONE of them are actually FROM the Jersey Shore, lol.. They go to a club thats pretty much in my backyard . Situation apparently got into my brothers face last summer, but he said Pauly D and Vinny were pretty decent. I dont get angry like a lot of people around here do about the show. Its stupid, and if anyone takes them seriously, thats their fault.
Response: I know some people from Jersey get upset because of the way the show portrays people from Jersey....Because it's a REALITY show, right? Ha-ha...Just like mid-westerners are all farmers in overalls and all us Californians are surfers....LOL....Thanks for the quick rating and the heart! = )
Response: Thank you for the fast rating and the heart! My family (Reich and Zimmerman) are from Germany-I don't speak it, only a few words like a 1 yr. old baby! Maybe I practice my German on you and you practice English on me as penpals? = )
Comment: ok, so i've recently signed up for several pc swaps, right? (NOT knowing which swap it's from) i take the pc you sent me out of the mailbox, and my first thought was, "Boy, that's a REALLY UGLY postcard" and then i immediately felt pretty uncharitable ~ so i flip it over, and it's for the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Postcard Swap~ i laughed out loud! You hit the nail on the head with this one~ too FUNNY! :)
Response: I guess I did my job! Now I'm trying to figure out what to send for the 'PC I don't want' swap.....Ha! Thanks for the quick rating, comment, and the heart!! = )
Comment: awesome! first art envelope i have ever gotten. it was so cool i didnt want to open it at first! but i did, carefully along the seam. :) filled with very neat goodies. love the quotes! thank you!!
Response: Thanks for the quick rating and the heart! So glad you like it-Hope our swapping paths cross again! = )
Response: Thank YOU for the quick rating and the heart! Glad you like it! = ) Sometimes it's like Christmas, I never know what to get anybody....so I'm always glad when something I send is well-received!!
