Comment: One of my local radio stations has started playing Christmas songs and I love it! I'm very ready for the Christmas season! Thanks for the holiday washi samples - I totally needed them! Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you! Halloween is a pretty new thing here, people have only done proper parties recently, so I missed this year sadly. But I did buy lots of sale candy afterwards, hahah. Hope you're doing well!
Comment: Joanne, what an adorable notecard, I love the ice cream cone! I agree, I'd like to enjoy 2019 a bit longer because time seems to be passing too fast lately. Holiday lights are shining around the neighborhood already! I hope you enjoy the holidays. --RJ
Comment: Hi Joanne! Although you said you did not do much over the weekend, you did! I have not seen the new Terminator movie. I will see it, eventually. I have actually met Michael Biehn and his wife, Jennifer. They are beautiful people, inside and out. You said you gathered up clothes and shoes to return.. do you do one of those rental sites? I stream my t.v., so we watch a lot of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. Thank you for writing such a nice note. And also for the extra bits and playing card. I hope this weekend was just as nice for you :-)
Comment: Very cute note card! I write things on lists and calendars but I wish I could transfer over to a planner but I like seeing things disappearing instead of being crossed off. I guess I could write in pencil and erase. Any ideas?
Comment: A month later but it's finally here, maybe the other two went into a twilight zone lol
Response: I have sent out this swap this weekend you reached out to me. I never flake on my swaps. Recently, my partners sent a resend and I received BOTH the original and resend on the same day PLUS the original took a month to get here.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute extras! I haven't seen either of the new IT movies yet! ;o; But I've been meaning to! Instead I'm binging a french horror on Netflix called Marianne. If you like horror, you might like it too!
Comment: Hi Joanne! Thank you very much for the great note and goodies you sent! I love the bookmarks and stickers. Hope you get to go apple picking soon, that sounds wonderful! :) Take care and thanks again.
Comment: Thank you for the teas, I’ve really gone on a ginger kick lately so these are perfect. I’ve been enjoying these swaps too, lots of different teas I would never have got the chance to try otherwise. As for book recommendations, I’ve just started reading The Alice Network and so far it seems pretty good, sort of historical spy fiction. 😊
Comment: Hello Jojo! Thanks for the teas and the letter. No I don't mind you including the swap in your letter. It was a double surprise for me and I really appreciated it. I will be replying your letter soon. I am hoping to have a lasting friendship with you. 🙂
Comment: Thank you Joanne for your lovely letter and extras that you sent me. I hope you get to travel around the world as it is an amazing experience and it will change you. You sound like you have a good life in NYC, enjoy your family and friends and the relationships you have with them. Happy Friendship day everyday. Blessings, Karen.
Comment: Hi Joanne,
I was so excited to see my special envelope from you! (Did u make it?) It was delightful opening it and finding special treats selected just for me! Cute & tiny 💕💕💕 You hit it outa the park!
Thank you, and thanks for the swap idea! I loved creating mine and am looking very forward to hearing from my partner.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card Joanne. I loved the paper snowflakes too, is that something pretty traditional in North America? We don’t really see them here, but then I guess it never really snows here either 😆. Have a great week.
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome little goodies! I'm not usually a tea drinker but I'm excited to try this one! The little image memos were very cool to! I havent watched the new spider man yet but it's on my to do list!
Comment: Thanks so much for the PC of lady Liberty! it came while we were away, and we just picked up our mail today. thanks also for the good wishes. I am healing nicely and, best of all, have a lot less pain! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the postcard. I've been to NYC once on vacation. If I go again I'd like to visit the World Trade Center Memorial, though I doubt I'd be able to convince anyone to go with me to such a somber place.
Response: Why not? A lot of people visit the WTC memorial.
Comment: Ah, hello again! Did you end up seeing Toy Story 4? I want to watch it also, but all of my friends who have seen it said it's not as good as the first two (granted, Disney didn't make it for *us*). I didn't end up seeing a movie at the film festival :( I hope I don't regret that. Until next time!
Response: Yes I watched it! I thought it was a cute movie.. TRASHHHH!! LOL
Comment: Thanks for the postcard from NYC. We are watching Stranger Things over from the beginning right now to get ready for the new season. I definitely agree that season 1 was way better than season 2! I hope season 3 can recapture that excitement!
Response: Did you watch the new season yet? I just finished it.
Comment: Such a coincidence: your envelope arrived 1 day after the day we picked up our daughter at the airport. She traveled 3,5 weeks in Japan and South Korea and recognized all the Busan and Seoul highlights.
And she is grateful for the green tea you included.
Response: That is such a coincidence! Hopefully she enjoyed Korea like I did! I cannot wait to make my way to Japan ! I am glad she liked the green tea!
Comment: I love this card.... I actually bought marimekko cards when I was in Finland a few years ago....AND I used this exact card to ALTER for a swap and so funny it went to FINLAND......so it's nice to have it in my collection also.....the PO was not nice to the written side..... It must have gotten caught in the ROLLERS and it curled and ripped it uP..... THANKS for a great card!!! plans for summer.....woo hoo...... going to BARBADOS for about 10 DAYS.....so very very excited about that..... and you what are your plans....???/
Response: Yikes! I am starting to notice that a lot of my postcards are arriving with the sides getting caught in the rollers. I am glad I was able to add the postcard back to your collection! I am actually heading to Savannah next week!
Comment: Love the pc of New York City. One day I will get there!!!! Loved the kitty stickers too. Thank u. I love sushi! I've never skied. I would rather sightsee then beach too. My parents used to take me and my sibs to the beach for a week and sit in sand for hours. I was miserable. I hated being in ocean and being outside but when they would take us to the shops I was happy ! To this day I loathe going to beach. You wouldn't like Georgia it's hot and humid and right now almost 100°!!! Take care have a great day
Response: Thank you for responding to each one of my random facts! There funny thing is I am going to Georgia in two weeks! Thanks for the heads up!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful watercolor card, and for sharing such interesting things about yourself. I can relate to some, like color green & love love turtles! Terrified of heights. Like, you could not PAY me to come within 100 yards of the Grand Canyon. Well, I mean, for a million bucks, I'd go to 99 yards, but that's about it. Awesome swap, thanks!
Comment: Ugh, I'm very sorry I thought I had rated you before I left town.
I really enjoyed reading your letter sounds like a great time as I enjoy trying different kinds of food, although I'm also kind of a picky eater and I'm hesitant on some kinds. I do not watch Game of Thrones, although I keep telling myself that one of these days I'm going to do a power watch and do it. I did have a great weekend, which continue into a great week. I hope your week also resulted in a great week too.
Response: I am glad you received my card and enjoyed reading about my weekend! I guess I am the type to try random food out.
Comment: Thank you Joannen for the great postcard of the Arc de Triomphe :) It reminded me of the time when I was living in Paris. Thank you for all the cute stickers that you included, they were all so adorable :D! Have a great weekend and happy swapping!
Response: I am so glad you liked the postcard! I searched my collection to find a paris theme postcard just for you!
Comment: Joanne! I LOVE the card you sent. I was actually supposed to be up in your neck of the woods a couple weeks ago but ended up skipping out for personal reasons so this card has great timing. We've been going though rotating weeks of rain and then sunshine with possible severe storms this weekend. Enjoy the sunshine and Happy Swapping!
Response: I am so glad you loved the card I sent! I hope you enjoy the sunshine too!
Comment: . How wonderful to live in such an exciting city. I have visited twice. There is so much to do and see!! Thanks for the great card. Grand Central Station is such an iconic place.
Response: New York can be a great place to live at times. Coming from a New Yorker who grew up here, I feel like I have barely done and seen New York as much as a tourist. Sometimes, I want to be a tourist in my own city and explore the great things to do.
Comment: You sound like such a wonderful person! Absolutely enjoyed your letter! I wish I actually had time to strike up a friendship but so much has changed in the last couple of weeks and time is nothing something that’s on my side. I am tucking your letter away in hopes of finding time to reply. Enjoy your time away from work and I hope you find the best possible place to work/enjoy! ♥️Debbie, Iowa USA
Response: I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed my letter Debbie! I understand that we are all to busy but if you ever want to write back, please do! I would love to hear about your life. I realized sometimes it is easier to tell people you do not know things than close family and friends.
Comment: Loved what you had to say about New York!. I did not get the postcard in my hands, but I was able to read it on my USPS informed delivery digest! No fault of yours, just the PO being the PO! Finally got it on 5/14!!
