Comment: Hello and many thanks for your lovely postcard. I greatly appreciate it. I hope you are well and may your mailbox overflow with postcards from all over. I will be sharing your postcard on my Instagram page (trishaspostcards) as well as on my Facebook Page (Trisha's Postcards). Have a fantastic day and happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you! This 101 Dalmatian card is fantastic! I actually watched 101 on Disney+ this week. It's a bummer that you have to take a break from swapping, but school is important! Oh, wow! You had some long hair. Mine won't grow past my mid-back, and as I get older, it grows less. I bet the shorter length feels so good.
I'm taking a short break from swapping or a bit as well. We are in the middle of selling our house and moving to Florida. I'll be forward mail to my parents place because we won't have an address for a while. Take care! Hope to swap with you again when we both are back into it.
Comment: This literally just arrived even though it was postmarked January 21st!!
Response: Oh wow thats international travel time right there. But I’m so happy this one at least made it to you. I had trouble with my holiday mails and a lot of them never made it back to my partners and I ended up resending. I’m really happy yours arrived to you 🥰
Comment: Such a pretty postcard! I just sent the same one in another swap😊. Thanks for your great book list! I did read the Alchemist (good read!) and I’m adding your others to my Want-To-Read list, either from the library or PaperBackSwap.
Comment: Love that this card was from fl and u live in cali Disney world/land. I love it
Response: I'm so glad you like it. My mom went on a vacation to Florida recently. I'll visit Disney Land next year if Covid dies down. I don't really like being in crowded places especially during this time.
Comment: You have gorgeous handwriting. I liked the Alchemist. I didnt like Subtle Art bc I felt they just said dont give an F as a solution too much without stronger advice. At the Dark End would be perfect for our Book Club. I dont tend to read about money stuff. I enjoyed Educated, crazy honesty & a reliable narrator. Thanks!!!
Response: Thank you so much for your input. It’s always great to hear someone’s point of view, it’s something I appreciate. I hope we get to read a lot of books this year 🥰
Comment: Thanks for the North Pole card. I'm also reading (read 150 books last year), watching movies and bingewatching tv shows--watched all 15 seasons of Criminal Minds, now on season 6 of ER. Can't wait to go out to lunch again.
Response: Oh wow I can’t believe it finally made it to you. Also, WOW 150 books?! You’re awesome! 👏🏻 What an accomplishment!
Comment: First of all, your handwriting could be a font. It is perfect. Second of all you are so beyond generous for sharing with me so many beautiful and cute postcards! I have to admit some are so cute that I may have to hoard them!
Response: Aww that’s so sweet of you to say 🥰 I’m glad you like them. Hoard them if you must lol 😂 I understand the feeling.
Comment: Thanks for the Winnie the Pooh postcard. Your penmanship is amazing... I thought it was printed from a computer! I am impressed with the amount of blank postcards you have. I have one shoebox full.
Response: Thank you so much! 🥰 you are so nice. I’m getting closer to my goal and I’m so happy to be receiving so many postcards. 💕
Comment: I have the same goal... finish up my 6 shoe boxes of postcards before I buy any more.... but it is so hard for me to not buy more. ty
Response: Oh man six shoe boxes 😅🤣 oh my goodness! I can only imagine how much that is. I’m hoping to at least end up with half of a box 🙌🏻 before I purchase any more. I agree with you, it’s so hard 🙃🙃🙃 there’s so many beautiful postcards out there.
Comment: Thank you for the cute Valentine postcard. Very unique edging on it. I'm glad I'm in good company with all of the craft/postcard supplies! I went through and cleaned out a bunch of stuff but need to do it again. I've gone to mainly making cards and it's hard to use of paper with such tiny projects. :) Take care!
Response: I used to make a lot of handmade cards on Christmas for my friends and family but now I’m just mainly focus on postcard collecting. ☺️
Comment: Hazelle, I got your PC from the swap and love the stamps you put on it to send but not only that - I have NEVER until now, got a postcard with the message being typed on it before (or was that YOUR writing?!) either way, I have to say that I loved it! Not sure how you did it but it was really cool to get anyways! 😀😀 By the way, I'm working on downsizing as well. Keep up the good work, it sounds like you're doing a good job with it! (Hugs)
Response: Hi Debi,
I'm so glad you like the stamp and postcard. It's my handwriting, I've had many people thing it's type lol. I'm doing well with my stash and trying not to buy anything until I reach my goal.🥰
Comment: Thank you for the cute kitty postcard. It is hard sometimes to stay on top of all of the swapping, my art classes, rating and my Hebrew class. I sometimes get a little behind. Sometimes I just have to take days and just set aside time to catch up on certain things.
Response: Hi Susan,
Honestly I totally understand. Life happens and a lot of people have a lot on their plates. I hope you're doing well and staying healthy. You're taking the time to rate now that's what counts.🥰
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard ! And nice note ! You have beautiful handwriting! Sad about your vacation coming to end ! But keep in mind it won’t be long you’ll have another one. I have a lot of postcards too I have a big tote full of them little bigger than I shoebox tote.
Response: You’re welcome ☺️ Thank you so much. Wow! I can only imagine how much you have. 🤭 there’s just so many pretty postcard lol.
Comment: Thank you so much for the HP postcard! I love the mushroom washi, it's so cute. I've been trying to send more postcards too and build up my collection. I thought I was sending a lot, but your friend who sent 223!? She's a pro! Have a great week!
Response: I hope you get plenty of happy mails this year! 🙌🏻 It’s so fun opening my mailbox and finding beautiful mails inside 🥰 my friend probably sent out 400 already. She’s very committed and she wrote a lot because she’s about to give birth soon.
Comment: Hi! Firstly, I LOVE Jetoy cats!! They're so cute. Your handwriting is GORGEOUS! I wish mine was so pretty! I love your name, it's beautiful. I'm actually finishing up nursing school now, so if you have any questions or need help with anything, just shoot me a message! I have a bunch of mail but 1250+ postcards is incredible!!! You should see if that's a world record, seriously. Anyway, thank you for the wonderful postcard!! Stay safe and healthy!!!
Response: Hi Katie,
Thank you so much for your kind words. Wow you're almost there! Thank you, if I have a question I will message you. =D
Comment: Thank you very much for the kawaii postcard!! Kawaii postcards are like so hard to find, can't even find good ones online. I also want to say I absolutely admire your handwriting and how you wrote my address in gray marker. Thank you!
Response: I'm so happy it arrived to you safely and I do agree with you. It's really hard to find kawaii postcards in the U.S. I like going to Little Tokyo or my favorite stationary in hopes of purchasing some. =D
Comment: Thank you for the Mickey and Friends postcard. Lots of joy in my mailbox today! I never received the first one so am happy to have the resend arrive. I hope you can continue to enjoy life. :) Take care!
Response: I’m so happy it arrived to you safely and your mailbox brought so much joy to you! 🥰 Sadly a lot of the mails I sent during the holiday had gotten lost 😞.
Comment: Thank you! I'm impressed that you're able to keep track of the cards and resend without receiving an email from your partner first. As long as the person is a reliable swapper, I usually end up rating anyway and not worrying about it. I really appreciate you resending! I've never seen a card like this before! I like Thomas Kinkade as well. I love the Kinkade Disney puzzles. So many little Easter eggs hiding in them. Take care!
Response: I keep a detail notebook of all the swaps I have participated on Swap-bot, postcrossing.com, and Instagram swaps. I write the dates of when I have sent it and highlight if the postcard made it to my partner safely. I normally don’t like to wait for my partner to message me because I feel it’s my responsibility to stay on track of things. However, I know that mails get lost and the mail service is slow so I just do my best to stay on top of things. 😊
I love Thomas Kinkade work. It’s so beautiful! I should look into his puzzle since I love doing that in my spare time.
Comment: Received I resent Disney 12 to u and hope it makes it soon. Funny I received this before my partners Disney 14 swaps came in. Thanks hazelle and hoping at least one of mine makes it. Take care
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I hope I get to write to you again. =D
Comment: Thank you for the jetoy cat postcard. Pretty funny! I don't have any pets right now either, but I'm hoping Santa will bring me a kitty or two. I hope your nursing school is going well and you are enjoying it. Take care!
Response: I’m so glad it’s to your liking. I was a little concerned and wonder if people might actually find it offensive. I just finished my finals and I’m so happy it’s over for now. I get two months off.
Comment: Thank you for the cute card and once again, I LOVE your printing! I hope nursing school is going well, the world needs people like you! My cousin is a nurse in the COVID unit at a hospital so I have heard how this virus is affecting people first hand. Kudos to caring people like you that want to help others and make the world a better place! Take care and enjoy the holidays.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! It’s been a tough semester and honestly I’m mentally tapped out! I could sleep for month 🥲 from exhaustion. But it’s all going to be worth it In the future!
Comment: Thank you for the cute pc. Sounds like you had a great halloween. You have beautiful hand writing. How do you write so small yet readable?. You have a gift:-). Have a great day and happy swapping!
Response: Thanks Christie! It was a good Halloween. I made the most of it 😊. Hehe I’ve been writing like this since I was 16. I have journals full of tiny handwriting. 💕
Comment: Thank you for the great Mickey Mouse card! 2020 has been a weird year. It's like we went to sleep sometime in March and work up in November. The time in between was a giant blur of every day being nearly identical.
Response: That is exactly how I feel. It's been such a weird year for all of us. I'm wondering what next year would bring lol. I was laughing at myself the other day because I wrote a note to remind me for this year that I would accomplish all kinds of things boy was I wrong haha
Comment: Hi Hazelle, thanks so much for the adorable Mickey Mouse card. I love it! I hope someday I'll get lucky and find some of these on eBay! How did you manage to type so neatly on the back? Like you, I feel this year has gone by fast and am also hoping next year will be much better! Take care, stay safe, and Happy Postcrossing!
Response: Hi Lila,
I'm so glad you like the Mickey mouse postcard. I hope you will get lucky too on eBay one of these days. I have always wrote super tiny since I was a 15 years old, I'm 26 now. I have stacks of journals filled with small writing. Believe it or not, the Bible inspired me to write small.
Comment: Thank you for the card. The stamps are awesome. I cant imagine getting rid of any postcards but I'm sure one day I'll get there.
Response: I'm glad you like the stamps. I didn't have any autumn stamps and this was my attempt. =D It took me five years to actually get rid of them, but I have met so many incredible people through this site and postcrossing I knew I needed to create space in storage.
Comment: I always love getting your postcards, the doodles and your handwriting are gorgeous. I can't believe you were so productive. If I can't sleep, I watch youtube videos, not organize and move furnature.
Response: I don't know what it is but I am so productive at night and I feel so bad for my brothers because they sometimes have to deal with all my ruckus.
Comment: how did you get rid of 145 postcards that you did not value? were they ones that were sent to you or ones that were blank? Have a great day and thank you ... DI
Response: I have been collecting postcards since 2015. Most of the postcards I had gotten rid off were junk postcards people were trying to get rid of and gave to me unfortunately. I got majority of it from Instagram Swaps and through postcrossing.com. Also, i don't like receiving postcards with a sentence that only says "Have a nice day!" which most of them had because I enjoy going through my collection and reading what people had wrote.
Comment: Hazelle!! :) This is by far the best postcard I've ever received from a swap. This made my day. Your handwriting is amazing! The artful presentation of this postcard, just wow! I'm so impressed!
Response: Thank you Kelsey, I'm so happy you like it. I hope I get to write to you again =D
Comment: The lighthouse postcard is so pretty to look at. BUT can we talk about your super cool handwriting. Seriously impressive!! How do you write like that? I thought it was computer printed on a label sticker and stuck on. The stickers you decorated with are pretty but I kept looking at your neat handwriting! Lol!
Response: Aww thank you, thank you! My handwriting gets mistaken for printed a lot Lol. But I'm glad you liked it =D
Comment: I am sad to say that I can only give you a 5 rating on this card. It deserves a 20. You get 8 for the cute card and 12 for your amazing handwriting skills. What a treat to get for Halloween. Thank you thank you thank you!
Response: Awww thank you so much for your kind words Doc! I’m really really glad you liked it! 🥰
Comment: Thank you for the great Vintage Mickey card. I love it as these are the cartoons I watched in the 50's when TV was new. I also love the mickey you drew with his blue mask and the Snow White stamp.
Response: You’re welcome! I have been searching high and low for the Vintage Mickey card and I really lucked out when I saw it. I’m so glad it ended in a good home! 🥰
Comment: Thanks for the Totoro postcard!! Did you print this, or is this your handwriting?? It's so tiny and neat! I used to read Nancy Drew books when we visited my Grandma's house as a kid. Good luck building your collection!
Response: Hehehe 😂 it’s my handwriting. People tend to mistake it as printed lol. I’m glad you like it! 💕
Comment: Thank you so much!!! I love the Mickey drawing and Little Mermaid stamp, too! My husband and I were inspecting your handwriting trying to decide if if was handwritten or if you had used a printer. It's so neat and precise. Good luck on your midterm!
Response: Aww that’s so sweet! My handwriting is often mistaken for printed lols 😆 It’s the pen I used, it writes cleanly. I hope I get to write to you again, I love sending Disney postcards to you. 🥰
Comment: I love the Jetoy Cats! Thank you. We are doing well, thanks for asking. I hope you are doing well. We are on the downhill slide to the end of the semester woo hoo!! A cat will be purrrrfect for you. There are a few cat cafes that you can go hang out with them for a while before you adopt. Once COVID lets things open back up you can go give it a test drive! We love going to the kitty cafes!
Response: I have always wanted to go to a Cat Cafe since I’ve heard about it. 😻🙀
Comment: Thank you for the postcard Hazelle! OMG I love your cat and pumpkin drawing and your handwriting is to die for; so beautiful. I have had cats since I was a child and most of the cats I had were aloof for the most part, until I started working at the animal shelter and I fostered kittens (and adopted 4 of them, OMG). Our cats are very affectionate and are always in your face, or on your head or on the keyboard as you work...I do recommend cats to everyone. :) Good luck with nursing school and I hope all is well with you. Take care! <3
Response: I'm really happy this one arrive to you safely. Awww...I have never met your cats but OMG i love them already! I would love to pet sit for you since they're the cats that gets in your face, but I don't discriminate, all cats are welcome and beautiful in my eyes! =D I love that you foster kittens and you adopting them, my heart is melting! I hope I get to write to you again!
Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard. How exciting about your classes. I hope that everything goes well this semester. I believe that all of you nurses are real heroes. Take care of yourself and be safe.
Response: Thank you so much! It’s been tough but I’m making the most of it. 😊
Comment: Gazelle thank you so much for the beautiful postcards I just received!!!! I love them, never seen this kind of postcards!!! Very much appreciate it!! Love your handwriting!!! Have a great day!!!🥰
Response: I’m really glad you like them. They are my favorite postcards and I’m so happy to share them with you. 🥰
Comment: Thank you for resending the PC. oh my gosh. Your printing is amazing. I wish I could have you send me a PC every week! I am fascinated by your printing and your drawing (pumpkins!)
This is an absolute work of art and worth waiting for. THANK YOU SO MUCH! (I just can't stop looking at your printing!!!!)
Response: You're welcome! Thank you for contacting me, I really appreciate it and I'm so glad you've received it. I would be happy to write to you again. =D
Comment: I love this postcard! Thank you. I too am an anatomy and physiology lover! Good luck in nursing. It’s a great career!
Response: I'm so glad you like the postcard! I just love anatomy and physiology. I didn't appreciate it when I was younger but now i'm absolutely in love with everything I've learned. Thank you for your kind words!
Comment: Hazelle I am always so pleasantly surprised when i get a card from you. This is absolutely beautiful. I hope you have a good time in Michigan - I imagine it's pretty this time of year. I'm from CA so I know scary earthquakes can be!!! Stay safe!
Response: I miss the actual Fall season and experiencing the Season change, watching the leaves change. All of my best memories happened in the Fall and I think its the time when I'm the most happiest!
Comment: Thank you for the fantastic postcard! Love it so much as always. This is my favorite time of year as well. I have a lot of things on my to do list so I’m hoping to be able to do a couple things. I really want to make homemade apple cider this year!
Response: Hi Kyra, I hope you were able to complete your to do list. Homemade apple cider is the best and I can't wait to have some in Michigan. :) Its always a pleasure to write to you!
Comment: omg when i got this card i first thought you typed it out. your handwriting is UNREAL!!! Thank you so much for the sweet message and the beautiful mickey drawing. i love it so much i could tell you went above and beyond in putting so much energy into it! best of luck with your move and hope to get paired again on swapbot again one day. you MADE my day <3 Thank you Hazelle! <3 :)
Response: Thank you for your kind words! 🥰 It was my first time drawing on the postcard and I’m so glad you like it!
Comment: Thank you!
I loved this card especially the decorations on the back side of the card! Love it so much
Thank you again for the 2nd card,I love the lily, it is so cute and is that your handwriting or print from the computer ? My daughter and I were trying to figure it out and we are still debating over it. Either way it looks awesome!
Comment: My family was having a debate over this card. Did you handwrite this or is it printed? Because you have the best handwriting I've ever seen!!! Thank you for the HP card. Your answers were fun!
Response: Lol. I sent one of my closes friend a postcard and her family thought the postcard was an add menu. It is my handwriting and it was an honor to write to you, I hope I can do it again in other swaps. :)
Comment: Hazelle. All I can say is "wow, absolutely wow". First, your handwriting is amazing. It's so beautiful, I'm inspired to get my print to your level. Also, your hand lettering...it's absolutely stunning. You actually sent my wife a PC swap a week or two ago and I was inspired by your lettering to try my hand at it. It was your "Please Kindly Deliver" text. I've incorporated it into some of other postcrossing. Keep up your writing, and continue to share it with people, it's inspiring. Also, I wish you the best with your nursing studies. College is a lot of work, but it's fun. I have a lot of fond memories from undergraduate and graduate school. Stay safe and healthy! Best, Rick
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! 😊 “Please Kindly deliver” is a wonderful thing to incorporate when writing a postcard. I love sending postcards, and I do my best to give it all the love it needs. Thank you so much, so far things are good with school. 😊
Comment: Hazelle! I love the postcard! I am giving you a heart for your DROP DEAD GORGEOUS PERFECT PRINTING!! I thought it was printed off your computer! How in the world can you print so small and so perfect?! You need to write your own handwriting book! I love the pink and black you used on my name! Love your stamps and wasi tape. Thank you!
Response: Hi! Thank you so much that means a lot, you just made my day!
Comment: Loved the book themed card! :) I do believe that to be true, as well. :)
My email address refers to North Dakota, but we were in Grand Forks AFB. For 5 very, very horribly long years, 2006-11! I heard that Minot AFB was 'heaven' compared to Grand Forks, so yeah, it was bad. ha! So glad to be away from there! The "IH8ND" was a popular personalized licence plate there, which is where the idea came from!
Thanks for the great card!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome panda bear postcard! I am so amazed at your small and neat handwriting! I'm glad you survived chemistry this summer! I am not allergic to soy but I try to avoid it as I don't think it's good for my body (I have Hashimotos and Sjogrens!) Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Response: Thank you so much. I understand why you've been avoiding soy. Have a great rest of the summer as well! :)
