Comment: Thanks for the swap. I enjoyed your poem.
We are well here. I’m retired so used to being home. My wife was out of work for over a week and was going stir crazy. Probably more from being stuck with me so much.
Comment: i loved my sketch! thank you so much. did u use watercolors? i also loved the journal. I will be using it to put all of my passwords in it...i needed one so thank you very much!!! I also enjoyed your note...its good to hear from someone else other than the ppl in this out...im getting antsy!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!!! It's watercolors, yes, with plain black ink over it! I'm getting antsy too... hopefully this will pass quickly! Happy swapping <3
Comment: Hi Milo,
Thank you so much for sharing so many of your ideas about this poem by Pablo Neruda. Your guidance on how to read it was helpful to me and it enriched my reading of "The Eighth of September." Your presentation of the poem was also very thoughtful and I will lead me to add this poem to my Poetry Collection.Your letter was also wonderful.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the poem!!! It's one of my favorites, as you know. Happy swapping!
Comment: Your card was TRUELY an amazing moment in our household!!! It came on the EXACT SAY of my moms birthday (i signed up for her) and she was just so touched it almost brought tears to my eyes!! She wanted me to tell you that “Milo” was the original name of our beloved golden retriever, whom we later renamed Sonny. Anyway, thank you so much for a very special family birthday moment, you rock!!!
Response: I’m so glad!!!!! I love neat moments like that, it’s what makes swapping so amazing :D I’m glad I could make your family’s day a little brighter!!
Comment: I absolutely loved your letter! Your handwriting is amazing, the stickers are adorable and the poem was lovely! It definitely made my day! And that's so cool that you love D&D too! Let me know if you're ever looking for another penpal or just want to talk about our campaign adventures! Have a great day!
Comment: Milo, Thank you for the envelope of steel, lol. This one was hard to open but I love the contents inside! Beautifully decorated, loved your lettering of the name, but you put Karri instead of Michelle :) Woops. Thanks for the tips on markdown. A space after the astrisk, it's that simple, (hand slaps my face). Who would have guessed. lol
Response: Oh my god, I’m so sorry, I must have switched the contents of the envelopes for my two partners 😱😭 I was very sick with a fever the week I made those, so it makes sense that it finally happened 😔 I’m glad you still liked it, and I hope my other partner likes your swap... whoops! I hope you had happy holidays and I hope to see you in the mail (on purpose) soon 😂
Comment: Hi Milo,
Thank you so much for the set of black and white wash tapes. They are beautiful and I will use them. I also appreciate the fancy book you made with my name and nice note. I hope we get to swap sometime in the future, Hope you had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year!
Response: You’re welcome!! I hope you had happy holidays :D
Comment: Thank you for a creative swap envelope. I've never had a little booklet like this. I can see a lot of time and effort went into this swap rather than throwing a bunch of paper bits in an envelope. I worked away from home Nov jnto the beginning of December which caused me to have to go with gift cards for my partners as I had neither time nor my craft room available. I hope you were able to enjoy a nice treat with my compliments.
Response: I’m so glad you liked it!! I think the time and effort put into swaps is very dependent on your life- and if a swap is going to be really simple, it can still be thoughtful! I did enjoy a lovely treat, it was a good start to a chilly morning :)
Comment: Your package is soooooooooooo Amazing. I really love how you decorated, The book page is really beautiful. (Do you know its named?) Thank you for all great stuffs, I love them all♥ Also with your kind words, really made my day. It would be great if we can do our private swaps or maybe a penpal :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!!!! I'd be happy to send you more of those book pages if we penpal :) I think it's a garden guide, I've taken it completely apart for collaging, so I'll have to track down the cover! I'll shoot you a message soon <3
Comment: Thank you Milo! I love love love this! Your ATC is beautiful, I adore the pages of botanical illustrations and the washi and stickers are just to my taste! I'd love to do a private swap with you since we have so many interests in common :D
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!!! I'd love to do a private swap, or start up writing, just shoot me a message!! <3
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the goodies! You have my taste down better than I do. I feel your pain with the postal carriers. They get aggravated that I want to use stamps. BTW, your envelope is amazing. I love this type of decorating, but have yet to step out of my comfort zone to try it.
Response: I'm so happy you liked it!! I had a lot of fun putting this one together. I hope we get to aggravate postal workers for each other soon <3 Step out of that comfort zone, it's super fun!!
Comment: Thank you for the washi tape!! I loved the iridescent tape even if it isn’t washi ;p And I especially like the fat tape!! Thank you again and your brushlettering is beautiful :)
Response: Thank you, and I'm glad you liked them!!! The iridescent one is too pretty not to send, even if it's not technically washi, I was hoping you'd forgive that :) I've been working hard on my brushlettering, so it means a lot <3
Comment: Awww, you are too sweet. I just got your swap and thank you so much for the kind words and the extras. It couldn't have come at a better time. I really really appreciate everything. Thanks again. 💝💝💝
