Comment: Thank you for the cute Thanksgiving card and extra stickers! It's really cold here too, but it usually is this time of year here. It will only be 20 degrees for a high on Thanksgiving! Brrrr!!!
Comment: Simply Amazing! Thank you so much. It's rainy and gloomy here in the NE Georgia Mountains so your Card and goodies made me so happy :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart.. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Comment: I kept waiting for my Swap Bot message from my third partner in this swap and finally went investigating...I realized you had already given me my Instagram love, just overlooked the last step to send the Instagram name in a Swap Bot msg. Since they were the same I figured it out 😁 Th for the follow n likes n comments!
Response: Sorry about that. 😣😥😯😞😟 I read it to fast then! I didn't mean to make you look for me! Thank you! You are too kind! ❤❤❤
Comment: Thank you so much for a generous package. I love all of the rubber stamps, tags, cards and stickers. The Vial of Life label will come in very handy. My apartment door was just painted and completely covered my various labels. I have actually had firefighters able to find my medical info to give to the hospital in my Vial of Life. Thanks again. Great package.
Comment: Hi, it's nice to meet you. I got a laugh over your husband's rescued squirrel. I feed our squirrels peanuts in the shell and sometimes they mistake my toes for peanuts and that's not funny. At one time I had 17 stray cats that called my backyard home. I really enjoyed your letter and all the goodies you sent especially the cat stickers, thank you. Happy summer, happy swapping
Comment: Thank you so much for the great selection of notecards. My favorite thing is the awesome envelope!!!! I knew when I got my mail and saw it it was going to be a great swap! Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Thank you for the swap. :) I think I answered that I"m a sloth - not because I'm lazy, as people think of sloths, but just because I move in my own time, rather than the rush rush rush of life around me. Very methodical. ;) Possibly very close to cats! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the great assortment of papers and the extra's you included! I loved everything, including the envelope with the Halloween theme! Thanks for all your effort in this swap!
Comment: Paola thank you so much for taking the time to write me a letter along with the gorgeous napkins you sent! Very generous to send all those ❤️ I used to do decoupage and now I m just collecting... My mom used to collect napkins when she was young and she packed my school lunches in them, later on ! I would love to do a private swap with you, I ll message you a bit later today (my kids just got up from naps and I have to attend loool!) ☺️❤️🌹
Comment: Had a rough day and this Happy Mail boosted my spirits! Very thoughtfully put together from beginning to end. Not only did I get a decorated envie full of goodies but a letter, too! I love the Bus story by Elizabeth Gilbert. I will share that. I will look over your profile to get an idea on what direction to go with your PC. I love your name spelling and when my South American friends say my name >>Pow-la! Thanks for a great swap! ♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your postoffice with me! I wish I had known about this swap when we were on vacation. We went to the cutest little postoffice outside of Birmingham Alabama. It was obviously a one woman operation and she had it decorated like it was her home.
Have a great day!
Response: That sounds so cute! I'm glad that she is able to do that! It's home away from home! ❤
Comment: Love your pics of Tokyo! In the 70's I wanted to go to college at the University of the Pacific in CA b/c they had an exchange program with Japan and I always wanted to go there. Looked up Harajuku fashions, interesting & fun! Thank you!
Comment: I loved your Frankenpage with butterflies! What great variety you put into it! And thank you so much for the extras! Kliban the cat is a favorite of mine! I also loved the envelopes especially the one with the cartoon images inside and the coloring one! This was a great swap packet - thanks so much for putting together such a fun swap for me! PS - don't think that I didn't notice that fabulous array of stamps that you used! As a stamp collector from my childhood, this made me squeal the minute I saw the envelope!!!
Comment: Okay, you've got my attention. Lol! Who carried this person in a hammock, why, and where did they get carried to? And why was everyone in the village crowded around? Is this person in good space or in danger? Enquiring minds want to know... Thanks for the intrigue and a the colorful stickers and the vintage postage stamps you used!
Comment: The supplies you sent were fabulous (including the extras), I can't wait to use them in my artwork. But I have to tell you the Kliban cat stickers were to die for! I LOVE Kliban cats! Thank you so much!
Comment: Wow, thank you so much. The kids will love the stickers and I can't think you enough for the notecards & postcards. You are very generous and kind. It's alot and the kids will think it's Christmas lol. You're zentangles are good too! Thanks so much!
Comment: Never got your parcel... and when I read your profile it doesn't look good. I will re-rate if you can send something. Update may 13th,2018: thank for re-sending. I know sometimes life isn't perfect. I aplause the fact that you are resending your swap. Thanks for the goodies and happy swaping
Response: Hi there! I know this swap is late in coming to you. I apologize for that. I pm'ed you on 03/15/18 asking for your address. I sent another tonight. I would like to make it up to you by resending this swap, so I hope to hear from you soon! <3 -Paola- Edit 05-04-18: I sent you a resend package for this swap today! I pm'ed you with further details. :)
Comment: (Whoops! Rated the wrong dang person's Wikiarticle initially!)
This was super interesting. I cannot imagine deciding to do that, especially the preperation steps of starvation. Recently I heard an NPR episode about Jainists who do something similar and about the legality of it as it's technically suicide, but is part of a religion.
Comment: Hurray - it arrived! Thank you for making up this swap long after the event - i know life just gets in the way sometimes! Hope you are both recovering well!
The cards are great - wish I could read everything on the postcard, but both have made me wonder about the lives of the people they were written by/sent to! Awesome! thank you for a great envelope full of goodies!
Response: You are a beautiful person. Thank you for understanding. May all mail coming to you be happy mail! 💌
Comment: I got it today! Thank you! This card looks amazing! We can tell you put a lot of time into it. Dylan and Rylan love to paint and draw. Dyaln says his favorite subject is reading and Rylan's is Math. Hope you have a great week!
Response: Thank you! I'm so happy you and your kiddos enjoyed them!
Comment: Your swap came at the perfect time! I opened it at my 911 call desk. LOL big mistake. Happy paper clippings everywhere! My partner and I had a great laugh cleaning it up. They had some really cool clippings. They will be perfect for my paper crafts. Thank you. And that Easter card is sitting on my desk. So funny =)Thank you so very much for sending me some joy. Happy swapping and Happy Easter.
Response: 03-19-18: Hi there. I sent you a PM last week to get your address to make up this swap. You kindly answered and I sent your swap today. Thank you for being understanding. I hope you like what I sent you. :)
Comment: Hello Paola,
Thank you so much for the "thrift shop paper supplies" you purchased for me for this swap. I love Tim Holtz materials and this is no exception. I will look forward to using these paper materials in future swaps. Hope to swap with you again. I received an additional package from you today with another Tim Holtz goodie. Thank you so much for this goodie package as well. I look forward to using this package of goodies too.
Comment: I love the Faroes - they are farther north than the islands my great-great-grandfather came from (the Orkenys), but I wonder if some of his ancestors might have lived there. Thanks for sharing a really nice board!
Comment: Such a pretty marble notecard! And thank you for the tags and doilies. I've been wanting to play with doilies so these will be perfect! And I like your superpower! Choosing when to use it would definitely be nice, unlike poor Rogue :( Thanks for the fun read!
Comment: Helloooooooooooooo! I have never seen a Twinchie before EVER! I've been on here for how long? These are just super groovy! LoVe, luV, l0vE them. Thank you so much. I secretly hope I see more of them from you. (Just a secret.) Thank you for the pretty card and all the envie stickers. So much frun to pull out of the box! x
Comment: Thank you for the recommendation, yes, it's one of my most favourite books as well :) I have read it at least four times :D I found it an interesting idea to have aliens like that. The plot is really interesting.Thanks for reminding me to have to reread it :D
Comment: Thank YOU for the card from Texas! I have only been there once, but it was memorable! What a HUGE state! We are expectantly looking forward to temps in the 60s, not the 90s you have experiences. I am thankful for the sun and the comparatively warmer weather. I'll never forget the Pee Wee Herman movie where he asked about the basement in the Alamo! hahaha!
