Response: You're welcome. Thanks for the heart! May God bless you :-)
Comment: Hello again, Elly! Thank you for hosting a neat swap and for the beautiful Aurora card (I always preferred her in blue, haha, even if I also like pink as a color, but so many of her stickers/washi appearances feature the pink version of the gown), darling kawaii bear and kitty stickers, and sharing your favorite actress -- Ms. Hepburn is a favorite as well. I also really liked the metallic pens you used -- were they Gelly Roll? Hope you are well <3
Response: You're welcome. The gel pens are from the new Pilot G-2 metallic collection. I love them! A story I read about Disney's Sleeping Beauty - the studio artists' couldn't agree on the color of Aurora's dress and so they wrote it into the script!! Blue is my favorite color but I do like the way her dress color keeps changing from blue to pink =D (P.S. I'm leaving for Canada this week and will get a letter out to you after I return). Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely note with your song list. You do indeed have an eclectic taste in music, as do I. I will definitely be checking out the songs on your list I am unfamiliar with. Thanks again have a great day!!
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for joining my swap! Happy Summer :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard of The Brig Beaver II. It was out for repairs and not in its usual mooring place when my husband and I visited Boston. Our trip to Boston simply wasn't complete. Very disappointing!
Response: You're welcome. Too bad you missed seeing The Brig Beaver II! Thanks for the heart :-)
Comment: Belated thank you for the darling Tale of Peter Rabbit card and kawaii heart-holding bunny sticker, Elly! (I am almost finished catching up rating mail that was received in late May/early June when I was out of town but withheld by a family member until recently.) I will have to reread Ms. Potter's oeuvre -- brings back such memories :) I remember thinking my mom's admonitions were very much like Mrs. Rabbit's! Hope you and your family are well!
Comment: Elly ...I have no idea when you sent since the deadline for the swap was the 13th I'm assuming they cam by pony express...lol I just received them and how awesome!! I love the recycled handmade envie you sent them in and what a variety of sizes and colors plus the extra beautiful note card....Thank you for a great swap idea and a great swap!! Blessings....Charlene
Response: Wow, the mail has been so unpredictable lately... I'm very glad that you finally received my swap!! Thank you for your patience and for the heart :-) God bless you!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome postcard from China! The postmark on the front said Providence--is that where you live? I went to graduate school at Brown and lived in Cranston for 5 years. I loved Rhode Island--well, not the winters!
Response: You're welcome. I live near the RI border and most of the mail that I send does pass through Providence :-) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you Elly for the postcard i just received of the wonderful cat! Wow! It is a marvelous postcard! Yes the kitties approved of this postcard and Baba had come over when i showed it to her to sniff it! Thanks Elly for loving cats too!

Comment: Super PC, Elly...and your quote is fabulous! Definitely my motto....(reminds me of the quote...no use looking back...we ain't goin' that way!) Love your city...always saying if you said I had to move, and to choose a new city in just a few minutes, I'd quickly choose Boston! â¤ jinanne
Response: I'm so glad that you love the PC and quote :-) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hello Elly! I too, am excited for the fall, even though it does get a little too cold in November in Chicago for my liking. Thank you for the cute cat postcard. I love it! I hope you have a wonderful week! xo
Response: You're welcome. I'm glad that you love the PC! Thanks for the heart :-)
Comment: Elly, Thank you for a wonderfully delightful little envelope of goodies. I very much like everything you sent. :) The pansy is my new bookmark, and I squealed with delight when I saw the book plate. â™¥
Response: You're welcome. I purchased the bookmark at my local pre-read bookstore (one of my favorite hang-outs). Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Love the surprised kitten pc and your note! My Siamese, Richard, says hello to Lily. :-) Thanks for doing this private swap with me; my pc to you should reach you soon, if it hasn't already. :-)
Response: Glad you love the PC! I haven't received your PC yet but I'll rate you as soon as I receive it :-) Lily can be a snob but she does say "hello" back to Richard =D Hope you have a lovely weekend!
Comment: Love the card and your handwriting. I think you are a fan of Christopher Lee, because he is awesome. Writing with two hands is awesome, but I dom't think you can do that egally wel. So I believe your hair was colored very well! Curious if I am right :)
Response: Thank you for the compliment on my handwriting and thank you for the heart. You're right, I can't write with both hands equally well! All the Best, Elly
Comment: So many pretties, Elly! Thank you! We share favorites; I love everything you sent!! :) It was really hard for me to choose, too, because I kept seeing another one I loved! Lol! But that's ok- we're allowed to adore all of them :)
Response: You're welcome. I'm glad that you love everything :-) Thanks for the heart and Happy Kawaii Swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard of the Spanish Monastery and the verses in Mark chap 9. It's so amazing how Jesus is King and a Warrior, yet He is humble before the Father and asks us to be humble as well. To God be the glory for our Lord and King. Thank you Elly. :o)
Response: You're welcome. Mark 9 is truly one of my favorite scriptures. It's a helpful reminder that God loves humbleness more than greatness. Thanks for the heart <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the Amish Book! Can't wait to read it but have to finish Undercover Cowboy first. Have a safe, happy, fun-filled, Merry Christmas!! Happy Swapping! If you ever want to do another private swap of some kind please contact me.
Response: You're welcome. Thanks for the heart. Hope the book "Plain Admirer" is wonderful :-) I'll let you know if I have an idea for a private swap. Merry Christmas!!
Comment: I am kind of glad that my day seems to be the only one you can make! LOL Again, I loved everything you sent and will put it all to good use. The cards are beautiful, the stickers have already been stolen, and I really like the "tickets." Thank you!
Response: You're welcome. Good to swap with you again :-) I tried to pick out items that I hadn't already sent you. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I think this actually made my week! Thank you so much for the great items. I know I have a use for each and every one, and it is so much appreciated! (I have watched the Blackfish documentary many times, as well as read Death at Sea World. It is an issue close to my heart. :-) ) Thanks again!
Response: You're welcome. I'm very glad that you like what I sent you! Thanks for the heart. P.S. I went to Sea World once when I was 18 and left unimpressed... After watching Blackfish I now know why!
Comment: Thank you. Lovely envelope!
I like the stamps, too, thank you!
Response: You're welcome. I read on your profile that you like interesting foreign stamps so I tried to use a lot! Making envelopes is relaxing for me and I'm glad you like it. Thank you for your kind words and the heart! Cheers, Elly
Comment: It was so wonderful to open your card and find so much solace! I've actually started carrying the card in my purse so that I can also turn to these scriptures when I get anxious. The bookmark/card and stickers are lovely, too. Thank you for the lovely reminder of God's love!
Response: You're welcome. God is good. So glad that these scriptures bring you comfort. Thanks for the heart. God bless you.

Response: You're welcome. Knowing that you're happy puts a smile on my face :-) Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Oh Wow! I wish I could give you a million hearts! This rates up with just a couple others that are the very best swaps I've ever received. Not only did you send great quality paper, everything you sent was totally my style! I absolutely love every set---especially the Kate Greenaway one. (Do I have her listed as my very favorite artist? I don't think so). You have totally blessed me---I hope I get you for a partner every time! Ha! THANK YOU!!!

Response: You're welcome. Thanks for your kind words and for the Heart! Cheers, Elly
Comment: Thank you elly. love your post cards and extras. The post office damaged your name and label so I had a time to wonder who it was from. Maybe you can put a note inside to say who you are and what swap. Thank you.
Just a hint for next swap. Happy 2014
Response: Hi Kayenderes! I did put my name and the swap name on a sheet of stationery in the envie. Was the envie ripped? If it was, then some stuff might have fallen out :( Sorry about the damaged envie. I'm really glad that you like the items that I sent! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Elvis Banana Pudding recipe. If I only could eat one dessert for the rest of my life it would be chocolate pudding. The one you boil on the stove and definitely not the instant type. There is a big difference. Happy New Year, Shirley
Response: Your welcome. I love chocolate pudding too. Happy New Year and thank you for the heart! :)

Thanks again for such wonderful Happy Mail on a gloomy rainy day! Hugs, Happy New Year and Happy Swapping! ;)
