Comment: Thank you very much for following through on this swap. I'm sorry to rate you a 3, but the swap was really late. Also, as the host of the swap, I think I should set the example. Looking forward to seeing you again in one of my bookworm swaps! :-)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and message. Your daughter is very fortunate to have you for a mom. I definitely understand about time seeming to go slow and fast at the same time when your children are young. Enjoy everyday together for she will be grown before you know it! 💕🌹🌻🌷
Response: Thank you! I was worried that my card couldn't make it first. I'm glad it arrived and that you liked it <3
Comment: Oczywiście, że się nie obrażę za możliwość podszlifowania angielskiego ;) Dzięki za podzielenie się odpowiedziami. Fajnie, że cieszysz się na przeprowadzkę. 3-miasto jest super :D Zwłaszcza latem!
Comment: O, dzięki za rekomendację! "Kroniki Pradawnego Mroku" powinny być czymś dla mnie. Tak, faktycznie znowu na siebie trafiłyśmy. Haha. Ja również ostatnio przerzucam się na swapy elektroniczne, bo zaczynam oszczędzać. Pozostaję tylko przy kilku na miesiąc wysyłanych przez "snail mail". Głównie są to serie swapów, w które się już wciągnęłam ;)
Comment: Wow, what a cool book that go backward! Seems interesting. I like that she provides pro and con from both side. I've only read one of Jodi Picoult book, amd didn't finish. Maybe I'll try it next time. Thx for sharing.
Comment: Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed reading your reply! If you ever come to California I recommend some interactive museums in San Jose, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco. They are all very fun and family friendly :) best of luck !
Comment: Musiałam sprawdzić, co to jest mara patagońska. Jakież słodkie stworzonko :) Też słyszałam, że zdrowiej jest wstawać rano i kłaść się spać wieczorem, ale mimo wszystko najlepiej funkcjonuję w nocy. Dziękuję za odpowiedzi!
Comment: I loved the card. Thank you so much. Thank you for joining my swap.
Response: Great, thank you! We used to play a lot with acapela.tv with my friend about... 10 years ago! It's so old, yet still very original I guess. I forgot the name of the website so I had to message my friend, fortunately she immediately responded with the right address :D
Comment: Thanks for stopping by! The packing tape photos are pretty easy if you have access to an inkjet or toner printer (usually in copy shops and offices) Just print your image on standard printer paper with inkjet/toner printer and put clear packing tape over it. Rub it really good so the tape is fully stuck to the paper and soak it in water for a bit. Then gently rub the paper off. The ink will stick to the tape and with most tape, once its dry, it will get sticky again. Super easy!
Comment: These were brilliant stationary and coasters in folk art
Thank you so much
Response: Thank you for the rating. It got to you pretty fast :) I hope you will make use of those little trinkets! I hope you will take part in my next swap, as Christmas is coming, I'm thinking of local sweets ^_^
Comment: Received swap on 2/9/15 after messaging ladybehemot about not receiving swap due on or before 1/30/15. Partner replied to my message stating, "I'm really sorry for being extremely late with this swap. Probably I should not have signed up..." I have to rate a 3 because swap was late and a lot of other swappers, including myself, have a lot on their plates, too, and still manage to send by the deadline.
Response: Hello. Is there any chance that you could change this rating? The thing is... I got engaged on the 14th of February and this is probably the reason why I never got back to you. I was too excited with getting ready for my wedding and I decided to stop swapping for a while. And, honestly, I can recall that I had no idea what can I say to you. But now, I have something... What about a swap? A christmas card will do? :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely handmade card, teabag and snowflake.I love that you taught me some Polish words. Thank you also for your concern about my health...I' still not feeling well but haven't had any more blackouts. I hope you are enjoying this New Year.
Comment: Unfortunately I can't give a heart because the ATC was on very very flimsy paper, and one of the requirements for an ATC is that it has to be done on something solid like card stock. I did like the tea though, so you still get a five.
Comment: I am away but my husband got my mail in and it was there yesterday (Saturday). Thank-you for the tea and foam christmas tree. There was no note about the name of the swap or even your swap-bot name but I remember you saying you sent tea along. I also enjoyed your Polish vocabulary words. Thanks. I added a heart to your rating.
Response: I've sent it for sure. It was a handmade card + tea + tiny felt decoration. If you don't find it, I can send you something else (I guess it's too late to send Christmas Greetings now). All the best! xx
Comment: Thanks for the pictures, they're all really nice and I dig how your tree has candy in it ;) I'm just a bit disappointed that you were a day late (and the pictures on IG were posted 2 weeks ago), I know this time of the year is busy for everyone but there's deadlines for a reason.. but for the mail today, thanks :)
Response: You are right. But thanks for giving me 5 anyway :))
I used threads to hang my candy. They are green, so almost invisible :>
Comment: Hey Julia, I have received your package. thank you for the chocolate and tea !
I am very happy !!!! ;D
If you ever want belgian chocolate, I always want to do a private swap.
Response: I'm glad I made you happy! :) I've been to Belgium a few years ago and I was pretty confused what chocolate I should chose. Everyone offers great deals and claim their chocolate is the best. So we may set up a swap in the near future - but I will prefer to do it at the end of January, if I have so money left. I have a new year resolution - working on my budget better than in 2014 :D hehe
Comment: Thanks for the card I wasn't sure who to rate since you didn't write the swap on it but I found it I will have to unfortunately pass on the tea because that was one of my biggest dislike but thanks for the thought . Merry Christmas
Comment: Julia, I want to apologize -- I did find that I had received your swap, it was dated March 5, 2014 on the envelope -- it must have gotten stuck in a pile of mail that had been opened. My apologies. I love the reindeer - rabbit with a moon in the background -- beautiful! The rabbit stickers and postcard and small Christmas objects were also kind to include. I really am glad that you caught up and that you are back swapping, and I am sorry that I overlooked your card earlier this spring. Thanks!
Comment: Hi there,
I picked up your package at the postoffice and it looked a bit beaten up. But it suprised me to only find one small chocolate broken :) the look so yummy can't wait till Easter!
Thank you so much! Happy Easter.
Comment: Now I want sushi...lol. Awesome read! It's cool that you can speak more than one language! I wish I had a talent for different tongues. I have enough trouble with the one I know. Thanks for sharing! I might have to check out your YouTube Channel! Good luck with your endeavors! =]
Comment: WrÄ™ceni? Serio? :D DziÄ™ki, nie znaÅ‚am prawie Å¼adnych piosenek po francusku, a te, ktÃ³re mi wysÅ‚aÅ‚aÅ› sÄ… naprawdÄ™ fajne! PS: z jakiegoÅ› powodu Twoja wiadomoÅ›Ä‡ znalazÅ‚a siÄ™ w spamie. Dlatego tak pÃ³Åºno wystawiam ocenÄ™.
Comment: Thanks for the card and the notebook :) It's not a problem for me that you couldn't send me a Christmas card - to be honest I like this card better than a Christmas card :) <3 Thank you very much and I hope you got better <3
Response: Yes, I got better and I'm returning to normal life on the university :D I picked the nicest card I could find, haha! Thank you for the wait, for understanding and finally for the nice rating :)
Comment: Thanks for sending this postcard. I appreciate you sending it blank as well, though it did arrive 3 months past the deadline.
Response: It was one of my first swaps and I was not yet aware that economic letters can travel such a long time. Now I send all my swaps by priority post. I'm sorry all the same. I think your rating is rather unfair, though - it's not the arrival date that counts, but the sending date (checkable on the post seal). Is there any possibility for me to earn a better rating? Please let me know! :)
Comment: This swap was EXTREMELY late. I know you have been sick, but if that's the case then you shouldn't be hosting swaps and not sending them. I did finally get the swap but it was really too late to enjoy it. The point of the swap was to enjoy Christmas songs all the way up to Christmas and through the Christmas season and I didn't get it until Christmas day.
Response: I won't argue with you because you are right, the swap was supposed to be sent a few weeks before Christmas, not on Christmas. The only thing I want to say in my defence is that, apart from being ill, I was really depressed too. I was thinking about my return on the university and I was afraid I wouldn't make it, after 1 month of absence. I was unable to do anything creative most of those days. I am sorry. UPDATE: we made together a private swap to boost up my rating. Thank you very much for this possibility.
Comment: Hi Julia! Finally I received your interesting card. Thank you soo much! It's nice because I like military stuff. It must be cool to go with your father to the Military picnic once a year!! Have a great day!! Jenny
Response: I'm glad you got it! :) Good that you like the military stuff because I was not sure about that. Bull's eye ^^
Comment: CzeÅ›Ä‡, Julia! My family had also been resisting the communist government and many people I know have gone to work to Norway... Life in Lithuania and Poland is very much alike in many aspects! I really liked your anwers:) Take care!
Response: It's amazing we have so much in common! I'm glad you enjoy reading my answers :) Have a nice day!
Comment: thank you for your comment! Yes, I do know Postcrossing but I haven't sent quite many cards through it yet..
Yes I'm from Finland and I would be so happy to have a private swap with you!! Poland is one of the countries I want to visit someday so it would be amazing to get a card from there ^__^ I'll send you a PM and create a swap for us, ok?:)
Comment: Oh, there is my postcard, four months later!! But I am a newbie on Swap-bot and I had totally lost track of whether you had ever sent me a postcard or not :-)
When it showed up today it was an interesting surprise!!!
Better late than never!
Glad you're feeling better and catching up on stuff. I, too, am doing some catching up with the ordinary affairs of life, just got my desk cleaned up and some troublesome paperwork taken care of.
Best wishes from USA!
Comment: Thank you so much! I really loved everything you sent me!
Response: I'm glad you received and liked it :) Just tell me - did sweets were in a good condition? After I sent it I thought that envelope may not be sufficient, some of sweets may crush so I'll maybe start to send candy swaps in boxes. Do you think it is necessary? :)
Comment: Thank you so much for a beautiful postcard - if ever you want to do a private swap please let me know. You have a lovely handwriting!
Response: Thank you very much! :) People often tell me that my handwriting is nice but I rarely consider it as good enough. Well, I'm a perfectionist type :D And about private swaps - thanks for the proposition, I'll think of it :)
