Comment: Pm’d On 7.22 and you gave me a couple reasons for being late. 7.24, two weeks after the send by date and you have not mailed the swap. 8.9 I received the PC. Thank. Had you notified me about a late send it would have been helpful.
Comment: Hi Ellie! I loved reading your profile, I feel like we have a lot in common! My father and husband were also in the military and I was also a military spouse and a Christian as well. (Looks like I need to add more to my profile! Haha) :) I would love to exchange letters if you would ever want to! Have a great night!
Response: Hi Christina :) Good day! Thank you so much for reading my profile. This is definitely a delayed response.
I am interested in exchanging letters! However, do know that mail here takes a long time, and I don't want to frustrate you. If that's okay with you, I'm game!
Comment: I love the tea pot PC! I don't think the post office liked it though. I received it today in a body bag. I didn't see anything wrong with it but one little bend in the spout. Thank you so much! It is darling! You are in my prayers. Have a blessed day!
Response: Dear Tita Dianne,
Oh I'm soooo happy that my card reached your place! Thank you so much for being nice, and I really appreciate it whenever there are opportunities for you to pray for me.
I really thank you for that!
Comment: Thank you for your updates Abby! It is always a pleasure to chat with you online. Whatever you save is a step in the right direction. Some times life happens and we cannot do anything about it, but go with it. Much success to you in the new year!!! Happy New Year!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card and sweet note including Scripture. I appreciate swapping with you.
Response: Tita ChrisAnne! I just want to thank you soooo much for the wonderful heart that you gave :) Thank you so much, and it really humbled me a lot. I hope you can include me and my family in your prayers, as we just lost a dear family member.
I am sending out my regards to you as well.
Comment: Hello, thanks for the Anime postcard! I think it's awesome that you sent a card depicting Anime from primarily Filipino artists. And you managed to fit quite a bit of a nice note on the back, too!
Response: Oh wow! Thank you very much for the rating and for the heart!
Comment: Abigail, the lovely PC from your beautiful country arrived and brought cheer knowing you were pleased to be my partner. Absolutely, I will pray for you...and I delight in your asking me to. Keep His word before you, and never doubt His unfailing promises. Hugs, hearts and blessings coming now...
Comment: What a cool postcard! I read that book years ago. I, too, have trouble with decluttering - house is a virtual wreck at the moment. And it started (or just got worse) while I was working on my master's degree. About that, I think you have to really love it. Years ago, I started in on my MBA, too - my bachelor's is in finance. But I was burnt out on that stuff by then, and just didn't like it any more (and go figure, my job is with money stuff and math!). But years later, I realized I really loved history, and that made it, well, not easier, but smoother. Good luck with your degree! And thanks for the cool postcard!
Response: Oooh, it took two weeks to reach your place :) That was faster than I thought. Anyways, thank you very much for sharing your MBA story. It was comforting to know that I'm not the only one who feels what I am feeling these past few days. I hope I can finish my MBA in time. Just thinking about it sometimes makes me wanna *sigh*
It was nice of you to give the heart as well. Thank you for this Tita Jan :)
PS: Do you have a book recommendation right now?
Comment: Khabar baik Abby!ðŸ˜Š Thank you for the ad pc n the famous boxer stamp from the Phillipines. He is my father fave. We just celebrating eidul fitri last 2 weeks and it was more fun with 4 kids this year. I hope u are doing well n in a very good health. All the best!
Comment: Thank you so much for the sweet postcard! It really made me smile because it was so thoughtful. I loved everything about it- the owls, the quote, the pineapple, the hippos, and Domo. PERFECT!! I agree that it was not a coincidence... my boyfriend spent many years in the Philippines as a child because his father was in the military. Wishing you well. Thanks again! :D
Response: Oh wow! I am super duper happy that the card has reached your place safely :D It was very nice of you to give a heart btw!
Kindly tell your boyfriend that the Philippines is way much more different now. Hehe
Thank you so much again :)
Comment: Thank you for this Verse you are very right =] I was also wondering if you would be intested in snail mailing with me? =] If so feel free to send me a message and I will send you my address =]
Response: Aww, thanks for giving the heart :) I am always interested in snail mail, but unfortunately, I can't commit with letters right now Joshualyn... but I can do with postcards. But I am not sure though in your place. I think US postage has been up lately?
Comment: Hi Abigail ~ Lifted you up to the LORD and will do so each day this month during my Quiet Time. I will especially pray for your Grandmother with Dementia. Grandmother's are very special! I work in a Memory Care Unit here and know how horrible Dementia can be. God Bless you! Charmaine
Response: Thank you so much Charmaine,
just realized something about what you commented.
God bless you more!
Comment: I am sorry for this horrible rating, but it's been over 3 weeks since the "send by" date (March 6.) Will definitely change it when I receive the postcard. I usually wait longer for an international swap, but this is a special circumstance. The swap was marked "Sent" on March 5, but then a PM was received, saying that the card was mailed out on March 28. Clicking "Sent" before actually mailing out the swap is a big taboo, as the integrity of the whole site depends on the honor of each swappers. There were no communications before this PM. I don't want to punish you for coming clear about the actual sent date, even three weeks later, but I also believe that the other hosts as well as other swappers should know about it. ***4/25/2014 Yay, finally received your beautiful postcard with your nice message! The picture is fascinating. Thank you! I wish I could give you a heart with a three...
Response: No, that's alright for me (the rating) I do acknowledge that I wasn't able to reply during that time because I honestly don't know what to respond back then.. and then had forgotten to reply. But thank you for having this reminder! Sending you a PM now :))
Comment: Thank you so much for both comments. I'll make sure I check out the music suggestions. Seems everyone is on about Frozen! Thanks for following me on twitter as well. I'd give two hearts if I could!
Comment: Thanks for your lovely comment! My first tryst with ATC was due to a yahoo group I used to be a part of where we'd exchange different crafts, including ATCs.
I'd love to see you around on my blog!
Comment: Yay! It finally arrived. Thank you! Thank you! I've been to Baguio once. Probably like more than 10 years ago. I don't really remember that much. Ikaw ha, nagsusulat sa postcard while in class. I like that. hahaha thanks again Abby! =]
Comment: Cool ideas! A rickshaw would be really interesting. Sledding is one of my favorite winter past-times. Although I can't say I've ever owned a sled. We usually just use whatever we have on hand.
Comment: Thanks for the comment on my "photos put in a Shutterfly book". Sorry about the view of the photos but it is how Shutterfly has it set up. The words are hard to read too but they do do excellent work and picking the layout of each page and what photos to use was so much fun.
Comment: SALAMAT! for the cool postcard from Bohol! We are almost 'neighbours' as I come from Leyte! :-) My cousin now lives in Bohol and I do want to see Bohol again so who knows... THANK YOU!
Response: Oh wow, that is very good to hear :) Thank you so much for the nice rating, and your cool comment. Now I wonder, did you like visited Leyte... or you were really from Leyte?? Hehe, I just curious.
Someday, I hope I can travel to Shanghai and see that neat place :)
Comment: Thank you for the comment you left on my blog, I'll be keeping the idea of using the ATC designs for journal covrs in mind. So do you create lots of journals?
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart :D Indeed, your blog is truly interesting. I hope you'll continue to post more blog posts.
If I have the opportunity to create journals, I'll do them. Just right now, I am focused on my studies. heheh :")
Comment: Beautiful list. I especially liked your descriptions. It's easy to just write some reason you want to go somewhere but yours were really nice to read. Germany (my country) is a beautiful place to visit but not really to live in. It has nice views and great places to see.
Comment: Thank you very much for sending the link of your blog. I like it a lot, it's fun to read about the mail other people send and receive.
Unfortunately I can't comment on your blog itself, because I don't have the accounts which is required to comment.
I'm looking forward to your new posts!
Response: Thank you so much for reading it! The heart is so much appreciated, and I do understand about the account thingy :) heheh
Comment: It was such a joy to read your answers, and thanks for sharing your thoughts! Let's stand together in faith & believe for a complete headling of your lungs.. Father I proclaim that Abigail is completely & perfectly healed in the name of Jesus. She will not only regain full function of her lungs & breathe with ease, but she will be permanently off all her medication! In Jesus name, Amen. Stay blessed :D
Response: Thank you so much for your comment, my sister! May your faith be renewed always in the morning! I claim God's complete healing in Jesus name! God bless you more!
Comment: Hello there ! Khabar baik ! =) How are you?
Yes, I design those notebooks! We do not have 4 season here.. its sunny all year long, well there are rainy season sometimes. That's all, no snow or anything below 25 celcius !
Comment: Abigail, thanks for the comment on my blog! Do you have a recipe for adobo you could share so I can try it?
Most of my recipes use lots of ingredients, because I love spices and flavors. I dug through a few pages on my blog and here's one that's slightly shorter (7 ingredients): http://lawstudentscookbook.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/sausage-and-roasted-pepper-pasta/
Comment: Thank you for stopping by my profile and learning a bit about me :) It is great to be a grand mother, never thought I'd be one so young much less one in general but I do love those little boogers. I know it says give a heart if extra special goodies were sent/done but you took the time to read my profile so I gave you a heart :)
Comment: I lived in Taiwan in the early 60s when my Dad was stationed at Tainan Air Force Base. I enjoyed it as a child. You and I have the same thoughts on Isarel:-) Thank you for sharing your views on the places that you would like to visit. It was very nice to read about it. blessings, ellie
Comment: Thanks for the list! Well, I hope you'll have a great time once you come to Thailand. By the way, I do want to visit your country too. I might do a backpacking around ASEAN countries once I save up enough. :D
Response: hmmm... I guess it's too early for the card to arrive since the distance of the Philippine islands from your country is really far. I did sent, my friend, the card. I'll appreciate it more if you let me know before rating a 1.. so I can fix things. Thank you :) 10/06 still waiting for response.12/27 Just Resent 01/15 Yay, I'm so happy that my card reached your place ;D
Comment: Your postcard finally arrived today! Thank you so much for resending. I hope you have a happy new year!
Response: 12/10 Another one :( but, thank you for rating. I didn't know that my card didn't reached to your place. Going to resend a card to you after this year because it might get lost when I send during this period.12/27 just resent 01/12 I am soo happy it arrived :D
Comment: Thank you for re~sending! I love my postcard!
Response: 12/06/12 - Just resent the card. I'm sorry if I wasn't able to respond. Most likely, I wasn't able to log in around November as I was preoccupied with studies. 12/19 Yay! I'm so happy you got my card :D
Comment: hello! :) Thank you for the postcard! Hehe, how do people normally spell your name? :o I am not a Muslim, I am a freethinker. but I do have Muslim neighbours and they are constantly walking up and down the street to the mosque. They are all very friendly :)
Comment: Dear Abby, many thanks for your nice postcard from Pagudpod. I like it!!!
And thanks for the chance to have a swap together and get points!!! It helps a lot.
I'll send my postcard really soon and hope you will like it, too.
Hugs, Steffi H
Comment: , This swap was just a send via email photo swap. Rain or shine, it should have been easy. Life happens and I understand. I'm closing it out as it's 6 weeks late. Sorry, I hope all is well,
Response: I'm sorry to see that you rated me a 1. Well, I did informed before that I'm going to be sending late. My country had weeks of non stop storms, so I wasn't able to take pictures yet. Hopefully you can reconsider when I'm able to send to you the pictures.
Comment: Hi there, I just received your swap(S) thank you!! I was surprised to have so many envelopes! o.o But now I am confused! Is there a place where I can get addresses to send these to? There are so many :O But thank you for opening this world to me, I think I'm going to gain a lot of new friends this way :O
Comment: thanks for dropping by and following my blog http://consciousness-collection.blogspot.com.au/
the 'true self' exhibition concept is such a great idea. one artist starts the artwork, then sends it to another to finish off the piece! terrific collaborations!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard ! I like blue color very much ! A school year in Japan starts in April and closes in March. I have a neighbour from your country who married to Japanese man and is living here in Japan.
Comment: Thanks for the warm hello. :) I had it on my profile that I wanted to learn about Amigurumi so I got a great how-to book and some supplies to get me started in a tag from a great swapper who does wonderful amis. Maybe you could do the same. It always helps to get some encouragement from someone with experience. I still haven't tackled my 1st ami but I'm looking forward to it. Good luck. :)
Response: Thanks! Now I have some at least inspiration to start on making one :)
Comment: Thanks Abby, I enjoyed reading from you :) Your silk screen printing is amazing! You should really try to sell on Etsy I bet you would do well! If you would like to become penpals let me know, I'm a bit older than you - by 10 years but I can be an older sister :) I will be praying for you. Have a blessed day!
Comment: I got the postcard today! 14 days! The flower stickers even made it. Arlington, TX is very close to me so your other postcard should have made it. Would you like a map Pc of Texas? Let me know and I'll send one out to you. Thanks!
Comment: Your Christmas tree is adorable! I love the idea of filling a tree with toys instead of ornaments. And your sister's picture of the doll and reindeer had a lot of character. So cute! Happy holidays!
Response: Thank you very much for your nice comment, and for the heart! Have a great day :)
