Comment: Hi Marika! Thank you so much for your sweet message! Thank you for the teas, I can't wait to try them! Also, thank you for the little stickers you included as well! I hope you have a very merry un-birthday, too!
Comment: This was due months ago and I’m so sorry I’ve taken this long to rate (honestly, it’s taken me this long to get through all my mail as work and all the end of the year holidays get busy and I’m now working on moving) but thank you! Even though it’s been so long, I will still write a letter back! Working on it now!
Comment: Hi again, Marika! Wow, wow, wow, you were SO generous! Thank you so much for the swap! I really loved the stamps and the sets of stationary you included. I'll definitely be using all of these bits and bobs very soon. =)
Comment: What a wonderful swap to get on this very last day of 2018. I LOVE how you decorated the envelope, my extras and I would enjoy getting my hands on the stamped weather, week and date you placed on your letter. I play scrabble every chance I get and am fascinated with how you put your name into a scrabble form. Congrats on your baby! What a true blessing for 2019. Also, happy belated birthday. My grandfather was born Dec 29th as well. Thanks for writing. Will always remember you while we watch the Rookie. Will see you in your mailbox sometime in January. Best Wishes for a wonderful 2019.
Comment: Marika - Thank you so much for the card and all the pretty goodies inside. I love the recipe cards and the postcards, and the washi tape on the envelope was just wonderful. I wish you the best holiday season and a happy new year!
Comment: Marika!! Wow. I loved this beautiful card and the goodies so so much. How thoughtful you were to put typewriter note cards and the beautiful foil extras. I appreciate the thought so much, just wanted you to know! Cheers, and happy holidays! Micaela
Comment: Hi Marika! Loved your nc and thank you for the extras! Sounds like part of the weekend was good and that freaking out thing happens - those babies do not come with a manual, so... I am sure you will both figure it out! Congrats and Best Wishes! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I'm starrting from the outside. Your address label is wicked cool! I like the postage stamp. It's bright and pretty and reminds me of this time of the year. The envelope is crazy pretty. Makes me feel like a queen. Then I open it! Again, WOW! A gorgeous card that's fit for at least a princess. Inside three teas! I've never had any of them. One is with chocolate (priceless)! I love berries but rarely find them. When I do it's a very exspensive treat. My point is you have blessed me. I would like to give you more than one heart. TYVM I hope you get such treats or treats that you like ten fold of what you gave me. ((hugs))
Comment: First thing I saw was your address label- love it. The card is super cute and I love the extra pcs inside! My boyfriend..wait..fiancé! (I got engaged on Thanksgiving!) was born on New Years Day as well as my niece so I'm hoping for a New Years baby for you! 😉
Response: Congrats on your engagement! I think you and I are both in for a wild and great 2019!
Comment: Right from the envelope I knew this was going to be a good one, and I was not disappointed. Great letter - look for my reply soon with all sorts of very serious and advanced parenting advice. ; )
Comment: omg! your photos are up on my wall already, following you on inst/pint, & dizzy with the peek into your hustle! i am humbled that you
still invite penpals, so that i can manage to give in return ;) best of luck with the annual novel & hope you keep up those naps!
Comment: Your swap was here when I got back from a mini-vacation and I loved hearing about your shower! I was 34 & 38 when my babies were born, and I'm not used to being the center of attention either :) Congrats on the baby and try to relax! I totally understand though!!
Comment: WOW! What a wonderful pocket letter. Love the background paper pastel print and then all the great details and goodies! Cactus is like a foreign subject to me. I did see some when I visited my sister in Arizona years back but living in North Dakota-don't see many cacti except for the ones inside. My doctor's receptionist has an air plant on her desk-I think it's a kind of cactus -interesting! Loved all the stamps you put on the envelope and the nice letter. Thanks for sharing and swapping with me!
Comment: Thanks for your letter and the tea! The Earl Grey smells AMAZING and I can't wait to try it!
I will be writing back, hopefully soon! (I have a bit of a backlog of letters to reply to right now)
Comment: Thank you so much for the 0 F***s Given ribbon! I have had a terrible week, and this is just perfect. Thank you again, I'll be hanging it above my desk for those days that really suck, so I can be reminded to do this :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute notecard and extras. I have no plans for a vacation this summer as I will be having a hip replacement. My dream vacation is Australia and New Zealand. My husband has been to New Zealand and loved it. He’s been almost everywhere!
Comment: Thank you so much for my lovely pocket letter - I love it. I have not been following the winter olympics, but have seen the odd event or two. I don't really have a PL process - I find each one is slightly different, dependent on the theme :D
Comment: Wonderful envelope of goodies! Thank you. Starting Christmas Eve a stranger has plowed our driveway for us. We thought it was a grea Christmas surprise, but the same guy has been back three more times in the evening to plow us!
Comment: I absolutely love my pocket letter!!! It is the first one I have ever had and was delighted with it ðŸ˜Š I especially loved the snowflake lights and the bunting!! It is fab!!! Thank you so much for the extra goodies too. You were very kind xx
Comment: Your lovely package arrived today and I'm simply overwhelmed! Thank you for so many interesting, fun and unique crafting items! This was such a fun package to go through looking at all the different pieces. And OMG the colored pencil pack was just too much! Thank you again and again for such a wonderful and generous swap!
Ps. - I also really like the bag you sent the swap in!
Comment: Thanks for the great pocket letter. We also love to cruise. Our next one will be in October, up the west coast from San Francisco to Vancouver, Canada. Good luck with your quest to be a mother.
Comment: â™¥ Thank you so much for the cute little flip book. I had lots of fun finding everything. You might try celebrating half birthdays like we did with my son (born 21 Dec). Good luck with your New Year's resolution and thanks again.
Comment: Oh my gosh Marika !!! I cannot believe how amazing your pocket letter is ! I just became obsessed with crystals and gems. I have hundreds of pins on Pinterest just of crystals/gems. So when I saw the theme of your creation I was super happy. But then I saw the enamel pin & I freaked out !!! I literally gasped, and I just couldn't stop saying "whoa" & "wow" as I took the whole thing in. I just adore everything. It's stunning ! (And I'm not just saying that because it's my first time with pocket letters, because I've looked at a ton online). But in my opinion yours topped anything I saw online. Wow, I just love it. Thank you sooo much for everything. I wish I could give you a hundred hearts !!! :3
Comment: Marika, once again you have brightened my day with a wonderful mail packet! I love the Christmas flipbook that you created! You are so artistic and creative with the way you combined things for each page! The 'Instant Snow Day' was fantastic, especially since the weatherman here keeps saying "snow tomorrow" and no snow comes... And I loved the little bits of info about Christmas trees. Thanks also for all the little treasures that were tucked about in the book - what fun it was to discover each of them! For being new to flipbooks, you certainly did a great job! Thank you for not only hosting a fun swap, but also for being such a great swap partner! I look forward to swapping with you in the future!
Comment: Hi Marika. I received your moving postcard. Good Luck on Jan 8. I know some acupuncturists and other natural health providers who have had wonderful results with what they do in helping people. I used to publish a Natural Awakenings magazine (Twin Cities' edition) and interacted with many of them.
Comment: Marika, I loved reading about you in the Mail Tag Swap! The turtle beach in Maui sounds fascinating! I like that your dad named you and that you know the story about it. My maternal grandmother chose my name, and I never found out why she chose Kathy Sue; I've wondered about it for a long time now, but she's no longer around to ask. I had to laugh about 'Ethiopia' being your password for your clubhouse. It sounds like you had great fun there. Best wishes on your family plans for 2018; I have a friend who went through IVF, had twins, and then a few years later became pregnant with another child. They are a beautiful little family, as I'm sure yours will be too! Thanks also for the extra stickers! I love all the tiny little items on that sheet!
Comment: Hi! Thank you for the awesome pocket letter. I have only made two, I am very new( and still learning) but have been enjoying them a lot. For a romance book recommendation..that's hard for me!! Lol. If you want paranormal go with Gena Showalter's Lord's of the Underworld. If you are wanting a little mystery go with Heather Graham's Finnegan Connection series. If you want more erotica Emma Holly's books are good. I could go on and on. If you want sweet feel good romance I will have to think because I usually read paranormal or mystery romances ðŸ¤” haha!! Thank you again for the super lovely letter and wonderful pocket letter. Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the beautiful PL, letter and goodies.....it is just my style and I am so very pleased with this swap!!! Your desciption of your craft/dining table rang true with me and even my husband had a laugh!
Comment: First I want to comment on your tag. It's such a clear picture of the three of you, what a wonderful idea. I love the uniqueness of the selection of stuff you sent and will put it to good use. Thank you very much.
Comment: OK Marika, Number one rule of private swaps...they're not contests to see who can send the coolest stuff. BUT if they were...you won! ;-) Needless to say I opened my package...First, love the dots (note: we both did dots). I'll just say I love everything, with the breakdown as follows...
-The pouch. So cute. My daughter knew what it was right away and unzipped it the whole way. And such cute things inside. Sloth clips, amazing. Have you seen the commercial where they're playing a Pictionary-type game with the sloth drawing something? Kills me every time.
-The Bill Murray bio. On my Christmas list. Can now cross it off. So thoughtful of you.
-Macaron socks (so cute)
-A handmade bookmark with authentic Colorado leaves? And postcards? So cool (and will all get used)
Little Prince bookbag? Love. Also will get put to good use.
-Back Issue of Lucky Peach. Love this magazine and feel the same as you about flipping though them. Have you read/experienced Esopus? Although I don't have a subscription anymore, it's one of my favorites. I'll send you a copy in a future swap if you'd like.
So yeah. That was an awesome box. Thank you so much! I'm up for doing it again, anytime.
Response: Yay yay! Iâ€™m so happy you got the parcel and tore right in. I have to admit that we are twinsies with a few of the itemsâ€”we have so much in common that I started listing after some of the things I packed (the book, the zipper pouch, erasers..). I hope you and your kiddo find some use in the items, and thank you so much for the kind note!
Comment: Hello, Marika!! I just got your wonderful letter! I want to reply, but I don't have your return address--do you mind DMing it to me?
I love the envelope and the snazzy postcards and I hope to hear from you soon!
Comment: I love the beautiful pocket letter you made and would never guess that you are new at it! I have never seen a pocket with the wood/woodlike paper with the clips on it like that before. I really like that! I enjoyed reading your letter and how lucky you are to be married to someone who can make sushi! ...anything for that matter! Haha! I'm guessing he does most of the cooking? LUCKY! I think my style is floral & colorful. My mother always told me I was 1/2 German & 1/2 Polish, so yes, my DNA results were very surprising! You should do it, It's really fun! Thank you for a lovely swap <3
Comment: Ohhh those teas! I'm super excited about the tumeric one, I can hardly wait. I love LOVE Buttermint and it is hard to find. Thank you very much.Your letter was such a love special addition to it all. Happy Swap blessings to you! :)â™¥
Comment: Are you kidding me?- I LOVE YOUR POCKET LETTER!!! It's gorgeous!!! And I will admit I too was hesitant about joining because my lack of Frida knowledge. I did the same thing you did...research and become infatuated with her! Very cool! Always learning new things from swap-bot! Thank you :) <3
Comment: This was an amzing Flip book. I am shocked at how you said you are new to making them, because this was simply beautiful! Also I would love to be your pen pal, but you didn't leave a return address haha, so message me :)
Response: Yay! I'm glad you liked! I can't believe I forgot to add an address. I'll PM one. I'd love to be penpals! â˜ºï¸
Comment: What an amazing pocket letter it is totally beautiful, I really like the colours you used and all the extra goodies. I am not allowed much coffee either although my dr will let me have one a week. Strangely I am fine with tea and so drink lots of that. I am very new to pocket letters and have only completed a few but I already love them.
Thank you again
Comment: I got your pocket letter today and was totally blown away. It is so beautiful!! And I wasn't expecting to receive something so quickly either. I just started pocket letters, and yes we are late to the party. They seem to have been invented sometime around 2015, but I wasn't swapping at that time due to money issues. I am glad there are still some people swapping them. To answer your question about fall in Ohio, it really depends on the year. Lately it has been hot (it was 90 degrees this week) and when it is hot the leaves just turn brown so I expect we will have a bad year. Thank you for joining my swap. Oh yes, also my kitchen table is a complete mess with craft stuff. Glad I am not the only one!
Response: I'm so happy you liked the pocket letter. It was definitely a fun one to put together. I love bright colors. Thanks for hosting!
Comment: Thank you so so much for the pocket letter it was so wonderful! I would have never guess you were new to them! You asked some wonderful questions in your letter so be sure to look out for the answers in your mailbox soon!
Comment: Thank you so much for your deep and sincere letter and some extras! You sent me not only interesting letter, but also bookmarks (I always need them!) in a Japanese style and stickers. Tomorrow I'll send you my reply!
Response: Excellent! I hope this will be the start to a great pen friendship. :)
Comment: Hi Marika! It was great to have a visit from you and yes, I do remember Ziggy! I have one of his numbered prints framed and hanging on my living room wall! LOL! I really don't have a stationery source - I just pickup goodies at thrift stores and yard sales when I can, sometimes are better than others - sigh! I agree that my favorite place to be is anywhere my family is! They just make it that much more fun! I have been to Vegas twice and enjoyed it each time! Now I have the gambling fever a bit closer to home, but am sad to say I usually do not walk out a winner, but have lots of fun! LOL! Wishing you all the best on your trip! Thank you for the goodies and for joining the swap as well! Hope you had fun! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Marika, It was a looong week that just passed without my receiving a single swap. Today, a bright Happy envelope came! Thank you for sending Happiness in the mail for me. I Love everything you sent, but especially your written word. Your Dad is a special person! May we all join the "parade" even though we're not being run out! All the Best.
Comment: I have to admit...I gave you a heart even before reading your letter! I could tell I was going to love reading it!! I feel like we have quite a few things in common!!! I will write back!! Thank you so much for your letter!! <3
Comment: Marika, your fabulous journal has been a treasure to read and enjoy! From your zestful embrace of life and its ever-present work-a-day experiences to your priceless past you kept me entertained---a page-turner. Once in awhile you receive a swap and just wanna jump in the car, find the swapper, and give them a hug. Alas, time and space. Thank you for making this such a special swap, for sharing your life and thoughts. Get out of the way, world...Marika is making her mark! Big hugs, hearts, and all good wishes in the days ahead, my friend....jinanne
Comment: Thanks for the nice notecard ðŸ˜‹ This was a good swap and I always enjoy doing swaps with this group. I'm glad it has been getting more active. And your secret is safe with me ðŸ— although it did bring up a weird old memory of my own. Have a great weekend, Nathan
Comment: Hi there! Goodness me, what a cheerful envelope I found in my letterbox today. The zines you sent are just charming, I totally agree with the happy list and the book of Korean advice gave me a huge smile. Thanks so much, and have a lovely day :)
Comment: Thank You Marika for an amazing letter! Everything is so lovely, that I was afraid of touch this firstly to not destroy the art ;D Fortunately the card is on velvet ;) Thanks for retro postcards especially. I do love them! I will try to respond you as fast as it will be possible. Have a nice day! Greetings from sunny Poland :D
Comment: Hey! Thank you so much for a neat, stuffed envelope. Thought the typewriter die-cuts were wonderful, the assortment of papers, the zine (quite humorous), and even ATC. Liked that you recommended that A & E law show. I'll look that up. Your effort and extras are appreciated.
Comment: Marika - thanks for your wonderful notecard! I loved everything about it - the decorated envelope was awesome! The Project Life cards I'll put to good use and I'm hoping to get something back out to you in a few days!
Comment: Hi Marika,
Thank you for your lovely impression of Colorado Springs. It seems to be a great city. I hope that we might be able to visit the USA one day. And thank you for the lovely extra's. Kind regards Tanja
Comment: Thanks for the Colorado postcard. My daughters, ages 15 and 11, just finished watching every episode of Friends. It is difficult finding a good slow cooker dish. I blame the slow cooker, or crockpot. Never blame the cook :)
Comment: I didn't know what the swap was when I first opened the package. I was thinking these are pretty cool. Was a wonderful surprise to learn they were bookmarks. Quite pretty and unique. Love them! Thank you! :)
Comment: I love your little zine! I hope all your plans come true - they all look really neat! I had no idea there was even a diamond mine in the United States, let alone public or private! I try (and fail) to watch every Oscar movie each year, too. Oftentimes, I haven't even heard of some of them before I see them on the nomination list. I'd love to find a ghost, too. But my best wish for you is that baby! Good luck - and thanks for sharing a great zine!
Comment: Thank you so much for the uber cute gnome card...it made me laugh ðŸ˜‚ Also love the stickers and tag â¤ï¸ï¸ These will be used in my December Daily and planner. Again thanks and wishing you a very Merry Christmas ðŸŽ„
Comment: Thank you for the gnome card. I haven't seen one like that before. Well my days and years seem to fly by the older I get. I appreciate the tag and stickers. The stamp with your picture is so cute. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Hi Marika,
Thank you for your minizine. I really like it. I didn't know all the women in there, so i learned something new today. You are really lucky to have such a super rad mom. I noticed that you love mail :)
I will write you back in a while, first i have to do a few swaps.
Take care. Tanja
Comment: Oh my goodness - What a Gorgeous envelope you made. Thank you for that - and - thank you so much for the awesome goodies you enclosed. Amazing - Love it all. Thanks again - Have a fabulous day.
thank you very much for resending and thanks for the lovely surprise! that beautiful as you wrap things up.
Thank you very much for everything, soon I'll upload my instagram (@ultramega_snailmail)
I hope to keep in touch with you and to make some private swap, send me a message if you are interested.
Response: I'm so happy it made it to you. I'd love to keep in touch. :)
Comment: Got your last postcard today! They sure dribbled in and I got #4 first! So I was wondering what had happened. Thanks for the cards; it was a sad story, but not uncommon. The kids get priority and their needs have to be put first. Sounds like you are a caring person. Thanks so much for letting me in on a part of your work.
Response: Ooh super interesting to learn how they arrived to you! I sent them all the same date but in different mailboxes around town. :) Thanks for joining the swap! :)
Comment: Thanks for the awesome envie! I love how you decorated it. And I loved everything you sent! It was so perfectly put together for me. I love love love the bookmark...thanks so much for a swap that really brightened my day.
Response: Excellent! I'm so happy I was able to put a little joy into your day and your mailbox. :)
Comment: What a lovely bunch of beautifully wrapped presents! And the note you sent was quite cheering. I know how you feel about "bonus joy" from sending goodies to other folks. I look forward to finding out what's in the packages on those difficult days. Hope the coming autumn is beautiful and stress-free for you :)
Response: Yay they made it to you faster than expected! :) I hope you'll find a little joy inside. Thanks for the note! :)
Comment: Hello Marika, your Mermaid zine made it safely and I will enjoy adding to it. I love your reusable envelope idea and putting a label on the back. I hope everyone does that. I didn't think of it.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful happy mail, I loved every single thing about it. The envelope is really cute, the tea OMG I can't wait to try it. The bookmark is gorgeous, did you make it yourself? It's amazing! The cat stickers and postcards are really cute, thanks for the tags, the washi tape samples (they are great) and the Alice in Wonderland stamp, can't wait to put everything to good use! Thank you so much for this swap, it really made my day and I can really tell you put your heart into this swap, and I really appreciate that :) Have a lovely weekend!
Response: I've been making bookmarks recently for a book club -- consider yourself an honorary member. :) Thank you so much for the kind words and rating.
Comment: I. LOVE. THIS.!!! Thank you for sharing! I hope this is the first of many for you <3
Response: Aww thank you. I'm glad you found some enjoyment in there. I was super nervous about sending it out...like it wasn't going to be considered a legit "zine." I dunno what I'm doing. :) Thanks for the rating!
WOW ! Thank you very much cute! for all that you sent me , I screamed with excitement when I saw your envelope.
If you are interested we can make some private swap between you and me . Let me know if you are interested .
Hugs and kisses !
Response: I'm so glad it made it to you! I was worried I hadn't included enough postage! :) Glad you found some joy inside.
Comment: You are the the best, Marika!! Belated, belated thank you for the wonderful The Darjeeling Limited card -- I love the image, coloring, and the weight/style of the paper :) -- vintage postage and Tim Holtz washi, and your kind message! Thank you for continuing to keep an eye out for that elusive Who's the Boss? PC; I was elated to see a Lisa Frank color palette and Alyssa Milano as Sam Micelli ATC on flickr recently, but I felt it would be too forward to offer to exchange for it. I am glad you have enjoyed the cards I've sent -- I always look forward to receiving happy mail from you :) p.s. I so wish I were in New York to catch Tony Danza's solo cabaret show T_T I keep hoping that Honeymoon in Vegas tour will come to fruition, since it was reported that he would reprise Tommy Korman...
Response: I had no idea Tony had a solo show in NY! Every now and again I check to see the latest on his live and Alyssa's. Once she replied to a tweet I sent her about hosting Project Runway. Totally made my life! :) Thanks for the great note! :)
Comment: Thank you for the nice postcard, Marika! And in answer to your question; No I don't watch the Olympics ... I don't watch very much television & don't like sport at all ... But I recognize the way you're being obsessed, but have it in mail related & arty things :-D
Comment: Dear Marika <3 (my best friends name is also Marika!). I got home late last night from a trip, and found two envelopes from you! I wish I could give hundred hearts! Pretty envelopes, loved your white pen on black paper, picture and business card. And extra stickers and Audrey H card! Over the top :-) Your day was such a busy day! Thank you for sending the second envelope <3 I wish you and your hubby the best luck! :-) <3
Greetings from Finland, we have already bit autumny feeling here.
Comment: Thank you for the sexy postcard ðŸ˜ðŸ˜‹ I can't imagine how anyone could find parts of people offensive, what a bunch of strange people. How are elbows okay and boobs aren't? What if you have the wrong number of fingers or toes, is that offensive too? These swaps are always fun, have an awesome day, Nathan ðŸ’™
Response: Haha You're welcome. :) I dunno why, but I have an unusually high number of PCs w/ boobs.
Comment: So you were right, you sent a naked card & i just received your envie of 3 blanks. Thanks so much! I didn't even realize it was supposed to be blank cards, I had already rated you a 5. lol I really like the cards though so i appreciate it :)
Response: I think I totally sent this wrong and sent a naked card instead of three blanks. Expect a mailing this week -- Luckily I'm still within the deadline! :)
Comment: I'm so glad that you had a great time when you visited us here in San Diego! It's easy to take our gorgeous weather and sites for granted. Luckily I have a lot of out of town company to remind me. :-)
Comment: I have Stephen King's book On Writing also. It's so helpful and well-written. Even though I am not a fan of what he usually writes, his writing advice is excellent! Thank you for such a pretty postcard and a great quoteâ™¥
Comment: Hello from PA! ;) Pretty neat they have a Renn Faire down your area too. They have one up here, it's pretty large, on the grounds of a local winery. I don;t have any vacation plans, but I am helping plan my best friend's wedding. :) thanks for the card!
Comment: Yay, you did it! I love the idea and will put my mind to it :) So glad that you liked the zines -- I have a soft spot for dokkaebi stories, and I got a kick out of Tyler Perry running an organic farm on the side :)
Comment: This PC is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much, this is a perfect example of why I joined swap bot, it's just wonderful! (My "legit" art back ground, lol, I have been doing more "crafty" stuff than ever recently!)
Comment: Marika, "Hi!" First, let me say "thank you for hosting this fun swap". Secondly: you really "wowed" me with this package of pink goodness!!! (and YES, when I saw the envie come out of the box, I thought to myself, "this is for the Pink Mail Exchange swap". Oh wow, did you spoil me...All wrapped in a pink foil envie, was a layer of pink bubble wrap that held such sweet and divine things: an adorable pink flamingo post it note set, great big pink paperclips held together with pink tulle, a couple different pink notes from you, a package of pink BUNNY letter sets, and (swooning): the pink panda washi that I have been adoring on Etsy. Thank you so much for everything: but especially the time and effort you put into making this an amazing package for me. I feel completely spoiled: PINK! Hugs, Tracy
Response: What a lovely lovely note! Thank you so much. I wish I could save it forever at the top of my ratings! :) I'm glad you liked everything and I'm considering going back for a panda washi of my own. :)
Comment: Thanks for the great assortment of swaps. I am sure I will use all of the -- except the fairy. She is so lovely I think I will have to keep her for myself! this is one of my favorite swaps, too -- maybe we will get to swap again!
Response: Excellent! I'm happy the fairy made the cut! :) Thanks for the kind note!
Comment: This letter was SUCH a pleasure to read. Yeah, I'm familiar with depression and it's remarkable ability to mess up everything.
P.S. I may be slightly buzzed at the time of writing this. Bourbon ftw.
Response: Haha! Thanks for the buzzed note. Bourbon makes everything a little more entertaining. :)
Comment: I really LOVE the dragonfly notecard ðŸ’œðŸ’œ
Nice addition with the book cover image and I love the super neon pink paper too!! I cannot say this page has inspired me to read the book though, however I hope you're enjoying it :)
Response: Don't read it..it isn't stellar and I was seduced by the cover. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome note cards and for the extras. I love the note you sent, and the note card it was written on. Ha ha ha. Hawaii is a wonderful place to visit, and each Island offers a different experience. â™¥ï¸
Comment: Thank you Marika for the great Prada postcard! Thought it was very UNUSUAL, as i have not seen much painting and drawing by Prada! Remember a friend who bought a Prada handbag and saved her money up only to have it stolen. She was sick about that for a long time Hope the snow showers are over! Loved the artwork on the back of the card. Made my day! Those animals were so cute and washi tape too!
Comment: Thanks for the menus! Man the bambinos pizzeria made me hungry! I love pizza and theirs sounds pretty blimen good! The Indian is much the same as ours In NZ which surprised me a little though there's many more entrees and types of pakora than we have. :)
Comment: Love the way you create the page of the book and made it so much more interesting. I would love to be penpals, but I have a mail pile to get through and finish the end of semester at uni before I write. But hopefully I can get it to you before the end of June. I'll message you once I get your letter out
Response: Oh yes, I totally understand piles of mail haha. Perhaps someday..:) Thanks so much for taking the time to rate! :)
Comment: Wow Great Notecards. It felt like I was a tourist in a non disney EPCOT-esk notecard store and visited 3 floors and got the best cards. I'm thrilled!! I grew up in a waterfall area but I can't pick a favorite notecard they are all unique in their own way. Treasures for my collection. I'm going to repack it all and open again tomorrow. :) Striking artsy envie. I love the Monkey embellishment you tucked in with the bouncy eyes. I had faux palm trees &rope&monkeys hanging for years for grandchildren Thank You Lucky Me to be your partner. Really enjoyed your letter and your thoughts . Hope I can sent to you some day!
Response: What an amazing comment! You totally made my day! :) Thank you for the sweet note and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the cool Las Vegas card and teal striped washi! You are so kind -- I have never seen a Who's the Boss? postcard but hope there are some floating around the world :) So glad that you also love it! I appreciate when Tony Danza shares episodes/pictures from the show for #TBT, but I am not the only fan who requests the remaining episodes uncut on DVD. (I have a box of taped episodes from when it ran on Fox and then ABC Family, but there are probably 8-10 episodes I have never seen or only know from the guide/pictures.) I can PM or e-mail you ideas for your cruise trip! Happy weekend :)
Comment: I received a package in today, and there was no denying it was for this swap! Oh. My. Word! I am in love with the cross stitch bookmark. Isn't that the cutest stinking thing in the world? Thanks so much for making this such a fun swap!
Response: Yay! I'm happy it all made it safely! :)
Comment: What a stunning card - I'd love to find that print in a fabric!!! Thank you for all the great washi and sticker add-ons, too. Wish I could send some of our 90 degree-year-round weather YOUR way! <3
Response: Oh wow...I can't imagine 90 degrees and sunshine all year long! :)
Comment: Thank you for the most horrific postcard. I love it of course. I have not heard of your author before. I will definitely have to check her/him out. This is why I love book related swaps so much.
Response: I definitely love book related swaps, too. Take care! :)
Comment: Thanks for the fun scribly art postcard and for your cool recreation of the style on the back! I have some of these cards too and I would not normally send them either. Have a great weekend! Cynthia
Response: You're welcome! I can't wait to see what "art" shows up in my mailbox!
Comment: What fun it was to receive a purple sparkly envie in the mail! Love what you did! What a great idea to list your fave Prince songs. Yes, that is hard! Thank you for the music notes too! Love them!
Response: Yay! I loved this swap even with my limited craft abilities. :) cheers!!
Comment: Let me know what you think of The Alchemist. I've tried 2 or 3 times to get through it, and just can't stick with it. I know I'm the only one to say that because everyone else LOVES it. lol (And I love the polaroid postcard!)
Response: This is my second try. :) I feel we might be in the same boat. :)
