Comment: Ohh, I haven't done a fold-and-cut snowflake since I was little ⛄️ It might be a fun craft as an adult! And, I kinda get where your kids are coming from. Even though I'm in my 30s now, if someone got me one of those little lifesavers story books my grandmother used to buy us as kids, I'd absolutely love it 💜 Little Christmas traditions like that are so much fun!

Comment: Your trip to H Mart sounds fun. I've never been to one. I love going to the small local Asian markets though. I always find so many interesting foods to try! Some of them have become favourites. We love rice with furikake, for instance. And mochi...yum!
Response: We have a handful of great small international markets in our town (Middle Eastern, Indian, LatinX, and Asian), but that H Mart was definitely a whole different level!

Response: Not long after that nightmare, I discovered there was a place 2 blocks from us where I could have printed it! [i forget if i told you that in the mailing, the timing is a blur at this point... :^]

Comment: Thank you for your hand stamped postcard with your own carved stamp. I have used rubber stamps for many years including with my own designs but I have never carved one - too hard 😂
Response: thanks for the kind words; i'm glad you liked it! Our library used to have workshops for carving stamps, which was good to get a taste of how it goes without having to invest in supplies :^)

Comment: I am the queen of library eBooks and interlibrary loans. Nice to find a fellow interlibrary loaner. Heh. I am alternating between an Ellen Hart series and some She Hulk Graphic novels. I don't get whatever streaming service the new She Hulk series is on, so I'm settling for the graphic novels. The penguin cookies are SO CUTE! Bummer they don't taste as good as they look, but maybe it's NOT a bummer cuz then I'm less sad that I don't have any! :)

Comment: Wow. I cannot believe how long it took your postcard to get here--over a month! But it did finally arrive, and I'm more than happy to give you a heart--loved the Parliament of Owls image, but more especially the kind message. Thank you! (PS I keep hoping PBS will resurrect the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries. Watched them decades ago, and they were SO Good!)

Response: Yosemite should be fun to profile! I think I might have had the Dance zine as well - is there a page with dance notation? That was me, and it was my answer to the struggle :^)

Comment: I love your postcard and really like how you chose a tibet map. I assume it was chosen from my about-me, so thanks. And in regards to that, I think all geographical maps are about right EXCEPT, that in the 1950’s China marched in and decided that their land belonged to them. Buddhists don’t have militaries so it was taken pretty easy. For a good while people would protest “free Tibet” but I think most people just forgot…for now :)

Comment: What a fun postcard! We love Jack Black in this house. And I'm so glad you enjoyed A Bride's Tale. It's one of my favourites. Unfortunately Demon Slayer was just too much for my daughter so we stopped watching it.
Response: I got a bit freaked out by some earlier episodes of Demon Slayer, but my son told me to stick it out. So I can see how that might happen. I'm still loving Bride's Tale!

Comment: Cool PC - I love that everything came from your shift volunteering :) The banana sticker reminds me of what my mother in law used to do - anytime she had a fruit or vegetable sticker that she peeled off, she stuck it on a tissue box in her kitchen. By the time she was ready to throw out the tissue box, it was completely covered in stickers! She is still very creative.

Comment: Thanks so much for the great postcard! It's beautifully done and I like the message. Maybe we'll meet on Serpentine one of these days -- I play as hazelwitch. Sadly we've postponed our Estonian trip -- with things as they are in the Ukraine, and Russia making threats, it didn't seem a safe year to go. Hopefully the war in Ukraine will end soon, and we'll be able to visit what looks like a lovely country. And I agree with you about the 2nd Thursday Murder Club. I thought the first one was better but still enjoyed the second one and will happily read the third one when Richard Osman writes it! Thanks again for the card and the message.

Comment: Tricia, thanks for the cardboard chunk & note. Actually, NM were my initials before marriage. I’m surprised more people don’t ask if they’re for the state, which I thoroughly enjoyed when visiting (mostly Santa Fe). I recall a restaurant called Santa CaFe, which I’ve never forgotten. Thx again.

Comment: I DO like shortbread, but I guess I'm probably not a connoisseur. I always use salted butter, even when recipes say not to, mostly cuz I don't want to keep different kinds of butter in the house (one is enough!). I haven't noticed that anything it TOO salty yet (fingers crossed). One of my fav girl scout cookies was scot teas, when they had them. And I love Norwegian Kringle, which is a lot of the same stuff, but also eggs - I think it's in the same-ish bland-ish (but delicious) pastry flavor family! Thanks for the chunk! Happy Swapping!

Comment: Such a beautiful PC with beautiful images - thank you! PS - re your binding question - I think since there are already those rectangular punch outs from the comb binding, it would be hard to do a different binding. My idea is to put the pages you want to save (if you're like me, you have some go-to's from every cookbook) and put them in plastic sheet protectors, then keep those in a binder. I have a binder of recipes that came from cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, etc. and I have them divided in sections by category - my own personal recipe faves. (Bonus - you can take out one page at a time and the plastic protects from cooking messes....:)
Response: Thanks for the recipe book recovery suggestion. The punch outs (and lack of signatures) are indeed the dilemma! Page protectors is probably the best approach. My sister had a book with primarily hand-written recipes (mine are a mix of hand-written and print); one of her daughters rebound it for her but that one didn't start life spiral-bound.

Thank you and have an amazing week!
Response: My sister gave me a book titled "Make Ink" and it has directions for various things. Walnut husks are pretty simple; pokeweed berries were harder (they're poisonous, for one thing!). I'll put some more notes on your page.

They are reasonably hard to come by, so I only have around 20! Thanks again for your card and cheery note! All the best for 2021, Tracy.

Comment: Thank you for the great postcard! Our family never had a gingerbread tradition during the holidays either, and the one time I recall building one of the houses from a store-bought kit it tasted terrible so we threw it away. I’ve never heard of the cookies that you like, but I’m going to google what “bizcochitos and butterballs” are because they sound delicious! My favorite cookies during the holidays are either homemade buckeyes or the storebought butter cookies that come in the blue tins (I think they’re Danske brand). Those were always a special treat my family would get to share together after dinner, with a hot beverage. It’s a fond childhood memory of mine now, so anytime I see the blue cookie tins, it reminds me of Christmastime!
Response: You can definitely find bizcochitos recipes online (state cookie of New Mexico!) but butterballs might be trickier. There are lots of different names for them. The recipe I use is for "nut butter balls" and comes from the (c) 1958 Good Housekeeping's Book of Cookies. :^

Comment: Love the PC of Violets! When I lived up about 26 miles from here, we had wild Violets growing in our yard. I would dig them up and transplant them. My late fiancé would always say "why are you doing that?" and I would tell him, "because I love them". He would just shake his head. lol. They were small and light lavender with the purple and gold center. Oh so pretty! Have a great day and happy swapping...… Thanks for bringing up that wonderful memory.....
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! When we were digging our vegetable garden at our first house here in Michigan, i kept transplanting the violets - my husband was similarly skeptical - and the next spring i discovered how abundant they were and transplanting was redundant :^) But i still have a hard time not saving them if i dig one up, because of the connection to my mom.

Comment: Two cards from you today (Sep & Oct)!! I never had a Mickey Mouse Watch as a kid, but I DID get a Darth Vader watch that I liked a lot. My heart still breaks when I think of the Micky Mouse RING that I had as a kid. It was a beautiful dark blue enamel. I was playing with it during a meeting in an auditorium. I dropped it, and it rolled away under the chairs. I never found it. I dream that it would still fit on my pinky (it was a kid's size, after all), but I console myself by believing that it would be too small; and then I realize I could always wear it on a chain around my neck and I feel bad all over again. Thanks also for the bioluminescent stamp! I am hoarding my one sheet. I should have bought more. :(
Response: I'm sorry to dredge up such sad memories! But the stamp can soothe the pain. (My husband used one of mine for some ordinary mail - that's when I decided to stash "my" stamps in a separate area!)

UPDATE: It IS weird how long it took to get thru the mail. I have a running mustache joke with a friend, so I covered up the back of your card and put it back into the mail to her!
Response: I'm imagining that mail carriers between me and you have been using that mustache and then wedging it back into place. Or maybe just eyeing it, wondering if they COULD do that. Because why would it take so long otherwise?? ::^)

Comment: This is a nice composition! Thank you. Looks like the inuit is supporting something with the tusk. The sky? The flower? Who knows. Yes, the heat wave is now finaly over. Temperatures dropped nearly 20°C in only a couple of days. Now with 19°C I'm cold...

Comment: Hi Tricia. Sorry to hear about your mom. Very nice card. When we lived on the farm my wife made quarts of violet syrup. So cool! Thanks!
Response: Did your violets have a distinctive taste? I forget if I mentioned this in note to you, but a local naturalist told me a few things about why mine might not have had much flavor (including that the species in my yard might not everhave much aroma/flavor!)

Comment: Hi Tricia. Thank you so much for the lovely postcard. Do you have to use glue for it to be a collage? Probably not. Sewing - I've even seen paintings called collage. So, I imagine the limit is ... our imaginations. Funny about cutting up books. I'm a librarian and should be agast about it too but ... there are a LOT of books in the world that are otherwise going to the landfill, soooo .... Thanks again for the card and the pleasant conversation. LOL.

Maybe I'll make one of the falls and send it to you Also, no. We don't have a bakery here. But we all love baked goods....

Comment: Hi Tricia :-) . . . Your poor Monster Man lost his hat in the mail but I went to your Flickr page and saw how dashing he looked with it on. This composition you made is very interesting! and I really like your zentangles and how you used them. Thanks for a great postcard! As for a tangle named after Spikenard Drive, I don't know about that, but I do have an ATC I made just for me that I titled "Spikey Doodle," that looks kinda tangle-y > https://www.flickr.com/photos/gracesanford/14123865258/in/album-72157644895649820/
Response: Ah man, I told the monster to use bobby pins to secure their hat but they refused. Sorry about that! And I love your spikey doodle.

And as far as where to jump in with Terry Pratchett... I started with Going Postal, which was amazing and is fairly far along in the Discworld series, but can be read on its own. There is actually an infographic that shows which Discworld books you can read without having read others; it's quite helpful! I'm sure you could find it if you googled it. =)

Comment: The kitten has landed! Thank you. I love the background, how did you made it? I never tried skateboarding myself. No, unfortunately I never saw an aurora myself. As a hint: the cats nearly fell of the card, maybe use a different glue next time.
Response: Oh no, sorry about the cats - glad they made it! I get nervous about using mod podge over paint (have had too many smears), but I have a feeling that might have been acrylic paint or block printing ink so it probably would have been safe. Anyway, the background was from my last frenzy of gelatin plate prints - the fuzzy white is from some novelty yarn, and the red is from something like a mesh produce bag.

Response: Glad you liked them! I usually make extra copies of my zines and then they sit in a folder, so it was nice to have an opportunity to send them on.

Comment: Hi Tricia :-) . . . I adore your Calypso Orchid stamp! What a unique looking flower, and you captured it beautifully. As for inks and difficult printing, I don't know. Sometimes it's the ink, sometimes it's the paper, sometimes it's the pressure I have applied, and I guess sometimes everything happens all at once to make the image less than I wanted it to be. But in the long run I think this is what makes prints so unique and special.

Comment: Thanks for the nice painted bonsai 😋 I have not seen the new LEGO Batman movie but I would like to. I'll probably wait for it to come out on Blu-Ray though. The first LEGO movie was surprisingly good and I do love me some Batman. Batman Returns by Tim Burton was definitely the best but it also had Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman and that's kind of hard to top. Rawr 🐯 She also looked amazing in Stardust which is one of my most favorite books and movies of all time.

Response: Glad you liked it! I was concerned it was a bit too much like the sources you'd posted, but since most people haven't seen any of it I decided that's okay. re: the origami: did I tell you that I once made a bunch of lobster ornaments for my sister? She's lost many of them, and I can no longer find the directions.

Second, I really enjoyed reading your opinion (and back story) about the book. I am a Terry Pratchett fan and at one time owned many of his books but sadly I have since sold them to make room on my bookshelf. Now I miss them! I love to listen to books as well so I think I am going to try and find the short stories and give them a go since I have not read or heard of that one and it sounds intriguing. Lastly, I love the unique post cards of the beautiful rugs (how fun if there were a tiny civilization living in one?!) and the colorful and quirky book marks. I'll bet that festival was a blast. All will be useful and a fun addition to my collection! Thanks so much!

Comment: What a gorgeous postcard you made, Tricia! I love it! Ugh - shrimp allergies. I developed this allergy in my 30's. I get violently ill for a couple of days. Not pleasant at all!
Response: for *days*? Yikes! Mine was more like hours. I once made the mistake of eating a shrimp puff in Boston's Chinatown ("how much shrimp could be in it?" I mistakenly thought) the night before I was scheduled to present at a conference. And I needed to finish polishing the presentation. That was a lonnnnngggg night!

Response: Glad you liked it! I often get stuck with creator's block when starting a zine, but have so much fun once I get over the hump. And I'm envious that you get to watch kingfishers; I've only had one furtive glance but now that I know they're along the river I'm going to try harder to see them again.

Comment: This card is gorgeous! I can see why you didn't want to cut it down. The name Kathy Chumley seems so familiar to me, but I don't know why. I had a swap last year and my partner lived here in Titusville. I actually drove past her house on the way to taking the package to the post office. Small world. You pegged me on Welcome to Nightvale. We drove up to Jacksonville last year to see the live show. How fun was that? Did you see that they are doing an offshoot of Welcome starting in March. I think it's called Alice isn't Dead. How's the book, have you read it? Anyhow....(lol) Thanks for the beautiful card!
Response: Glad you liked the card! I didn't know about the offshoot, but I'm sure my son would have told me if I otherwise missed it. Here's my review of WTNV from goodreads: "I just finished the 401 page factual report about the events that led to WTNV episode 76 (The Epilogue), and I would give it 3.5 stars. Although the characters and plot mostly stand alone from the podcast, I have this vague (but not menacing) feeling that you need to be familiar with Night Vale from that setting to truly enjoy the book." :^)

Comment: Hi Tricia! What a small world that you also have a Zane (you never know what they will be like when they are grown, believe are not, mine was not a risk taker when he was younger - yikes!! LOL!) and well a TJ, which is close to JT! LOL! JT gets called TJ all the time in college and he bowled a few times as an extra on his Dad's team, the league put him down at TJ instead of JT! LOL! Poor guy won't know what his name is!! Has your Zane ran into anyone else with the same name? He played soccer with an Zane, who lives on our road but went to a different school, so than he became ZJ for that team! The things we do to make ourselves different! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: There was an older Zane as our K-8 school, and there is a Zain that my son plays lacrosse with. (I refer to him as "Zain with an i" :^) They are both midfielders, so sometimes there's a double-Zane line and I can yell "go Zanes!"

Comment: Hi Tricia. I love the card. I've never had any luck with xylene transfers, but after getting your card I'm going to keep trying. Thanks for a really nice piece of art.
Response: Based on a class I took a couple years ago, the method that works best for me is to dip one of those "chartpak" blender markers into liquid xylene before applying it, rub with bone folder or the like. Ventilation needed! Our instructor bought a big bottle of xylene at a home improvement store and let us take some home in glass jars; i gather it's primarily available in giant jugs!

I really love memoirs, so I am going to look up "The Seasons on Henry's Farm" for sure and maybe even the Maisie Dobbs series although I don't read too many mysteries. When I do though, I am always surprised at how much I like them! Thank you!

The horrible rash that lasted 2 weeks made me lose much of my enthusiasm for creating with leaves.

A recent Australian book I've read is The Last Girl - Michael Adams, a dystopian novel set in Sydney (but a world wide event). I'd give it about 3-5 - 4 stars, and it's part one of a duology ( I thinks it is a duo. 2nd one due out soon).

Comment: Thanks for the fun purple collage, Tricia, & I'm glad you found the yellow one I sent you! I think Life on the Mississippi sounds like a good summer read. Maybe I'll dig out my copy too. BTW, thanks for using that cool triangular stamp. I recently used the last of my stash of them so it was good to see one incoming
Response: I've had a hard time parting with those triangular stamps, even though my rational brain tells me they aren't much use to anyone sitting in the glassine! Glad you like it.

I think she might have bought it at a store but I can't be 100% sure any more.

Comment: Thank you for your Toolos postcard! I'm afraid I have never heard of them here in Germany... so I guess they didn't catch on here in the first place (or I might simply not have been paying attention). Thanks also for telling me about your shorthand lessons at school! Sounds a bit like something for faster note-taking rather than a high-speed shorthand system but still useful! And thanks for the Korean version of my name! (Though I'd probably go by 필립 뉴턴 - note, I pronounce my name "Nyoo-tun" rather than "Noo-tun" since my father's from England rather than the US.) Thanks for everything!
Response: Okay, how did you get korean into a swapbot comment?? But funny - my husband was waffling about whether to write Nyoo-tun or Noo-tun and I told him to use the latter (i wanted to leave for the post office and he was slowing me down!)

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard of the Dogwoods in bloom! I think the postcard was mis-sent to Rwanda, as there was a post mark from there. Very odd. But it finally made it to my PO Box. Last year I mailed 4 flat rate boxes to my PO Box all at the same time. 2 arrived in 2 weeks, the other 2 arrived battered and cut open 2 months later with tape and stamps that said Colombia! The boxes had hotel soaps & shampoos that I give out to the villagers here. Crazy! UPDATE: I just received your 2nd postcard of the Cahokia Mounds in Illinois. I guess the original postcard finally made it just before this one did. Thank you for both of them!
Response: Very strange misdelivery! I wonder if that's where the first one ended up?? Or maybe Canada (same first and last letter! :^o )?? [I once had a letter addressed to me in NM 88201 delivered to MN 55201, but that was eons ago when they probably still did hand sorting!] ETA: Oh, that's right - the dogwood was sent first, Cahokia second. I'm glad they both got there in the end!

Comment: I love your zentangles the colored pencil works well on the paper. "Sharpie" ink tends to bleed so they can be lost. Micron colors and Copic color liner pens work best. Also paper made for ink is best. Drawing paper even very good drawing paper sometimes has to much "tooth" which causes even good ink pens to bleed. Hugs and happy tangles.

Go carve some more since yoiu got that big ol' block of it :)

Response: Thanks - I'm glad you like it! I have a really fine micron pen that I like to use for zentangles, I forget where I got it.

And I used it in my class block for my encrusted crazy quilting. It's in the centre of my 8 x 8 inch block with a plain brown fabric under!

Our winter is just starting here in Perth now although the days are still very hot, the nights have cooled down a bit. Our winters are quite mild, we have rain and the days get to about 14 degrees C (57 F). So it is not too cold:) Thank you for the card!!
Response: Yay for beagles! You probably weren't looking for a cartoon one, but maybe it'll be an okay reminder of your beloved pet for now.

Also - the eating well, I think I may extend to next week as this week I've liked it so much I want to "have to" do it more :)
Response: I had to pack up my office week before last, for a short term move, and I found over a dozen fortunes in my desk drawer - so I just knew I had to use some on your postcard!
