Comment: Love the tea you sent! Peach is one my favorites! And I love the ginseng. Korean Ginseng is supposed to be the strongest and most medicinal. I love the mini thank you envies also. And the way you decorated the inside on the card and the outside of the envelope just makes everything so special. Thank you for putting extra time into this beautiful swap for me! ☀️
I think I may be the only swapper in Seaside. I haven't found another one yet. I did get matched with someone just a few towns down the coast from me! And I love these tea swaps as much as you, so I'm sure we'll get paired again! I hope so! 🌹
Comment: Thank you for the watermill postcard and nice update on your area. It sounds like you are going through the same things as we are. We're still waiting to see if we can open up some businesses, hopefully salons! I'm always happy to join your swaps! Thanks again!
Comment: And another card from you came in today :) Thank you so much for the pretty illustrated card in pinks are purples. Love it! So cute! As is your washi and decoration on the back. Happy mail, thank you! LOve from Nijkerk, Nina
Comment: Thank you for your red - orange - yellow card. Loved the quote on the front actually. I wish you all the best with dealing with these crazy times! I know from first hand about anti Asian attacks - I have 3 kids who are 50% Korean. Stay safe!
Comment: Thank you for the tp Canadian flag postcard. Gave me a giggle! I love the way you decorated the card too. I would love to go to Vancouver when we can travel again. I'll have to check conversation started when I'm stuck with what to write about. Take care!
Comment: Thank you so much! I really loved reading about Earnest Ice Cream! That sounds so good! We have an ice cream store that is somewhat similar and your swap reminded me to pay a visit! I loved this swap so much both sending and receiving!
Comment: Thank you for the tea! You sent all the types of teas I love! I love this swap because of the variation of teas too and I agree that most of the time, they are not the best. Thank you for joining my weekly swaps!
Comment: Thank you, very much, for the lovely card and your nice letter.
I hope to take the train across Canada soon, and spend a few days in Vancouver at the end. I hope Earnest ce Cream is still there as I want to try something.
Sanity here remains stable. Video-chatting with our granddaughter gives us something to look forward to almost every day.
Comment: Thank you, Dee, for your April reading insights. I am particularly interested in the first book you mentioned, "Funny, You Don't Look Autistic." My brother (aged similarly to the author) is on the spectrum and I feel like reading this book would help to further inform my understanding of his experience. <3 Take care!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your thoughts about the three books, thank you for sharing :) I agree that audiobooks are handy, as you can "read" while doing everyday household chores. I can imagine a memoir type book works very well as audio book.
Comment: Thanks for you cute postcard! The corona crisis means for me that I have to work extra hard even though the business I work at is far from essential. It’s just ridiculous and I’m exhausted lol. Snail mailing is relaxing me but sometimes I’m too tired to do anything fun at all! But a full mailbox cheers me up ;) stay healthy xo
Comment: Thank you so much for the great PC! It will be nice o meet with our friends again. Although some parts of Houston have begun to re-open we have decided to wait until at least the middle of June before we attempt to mingle amongst others.Have a wonderful day and stay safe!
Comment: Hi D, thank you for the leaf postcard . My library web site does have links to reading recommendations. I miss the library ...it's not really something I use but I think lots of others would find it helpful. I always have a running list in my head of to read books and I never have a problem finding something to read, all genres are good. Happy Spring swapping be safe be loved be healthy
Comment: Received PC today, sucks your trip got cancelled. Our daughter had a trip to Europe Europe booked for six weeks, cancelled. We were supposed to go to Netherland in Oct, not happening. We probably won't travel far for a couple of years as I came back pretty sick from our last trip and now this. Your card is beautiful and so is your handwriting, you will notice mine is not so neat when you get my weekend notecard 192 🤣
Comment: u have the best handwriting I have ever seen...puts mine to shame...thank you for the much needed note cards. If u are low on store bought/handmade post cards...we could do a private swap...i hv a few store bought and a crap load of handmade ones...let me know...stay safe
Comment: Thanks for sharing your weekend with me! I love hearing about other people's houseplants... my thumb is not green but I've got a few that live. How funny to watch Contagion on netflix party!! Thanks for the extras, too!
Comment: Monday morning mail - very exciting! It was fun to read about your library and the Inspiration Lab, that's something a bit different. Thanks so much for a great swap and brightening my day! All the best, Tracy.
Comment: Wow, you are good getting this swap done. Bravo! I still haven't done mine yet. Need the pressure of that deadline bearing down on me. Thanks for the cute note cards. I like your neat handwriting. I do love your daily quarantine questions. I hope you don't mind if I borrow them for my daily Facebook check in. I love the ideas to keep yourself grounded each day. They're fantastic! All the best out west and stay safe! Cathy/Writercat
Comment: Thank you Dee for an unusual but interesting book that you wrote about. I am not a foodie either . I reads the part about how you are noticing your mom getting older. Oh yes cherish the moments you have with her. I lost my mum last year and the loss is real and hard. Happy reading.
Comment: Wow, Dee, thanks for the beautiful beetle card! I love rhino beetles. I saw a local species here in Georgia once, the hercules. This desert sticker is so cool, too. Thank you for sharing about your mother. My mother has been gone for 20 years, but I still often think of our troubles together. It's not easy. I try to be open to my daughter even when I don't understand her. Hope you're well! Hang in there and thanks again for a great swap! :):):)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely teas. Peach is a favorite! Sorry for the delay in rating. Apparently customs decided to examine the package--it arrived with green US tape that read examined. But now I get to have tea! Yay!
Comment: Thanks Dee! I looked up The Hand, The Eye and The Heart and it seems hard to get ahold of. Not that quarantine conditions are helping with that. I am a huge fan of Canadian YA and am I bit jealous you live in Vancouver where a lot of great writers live. Hope you're keeping safe, and thanks again. 🙂
Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful postcard and letter :). Also, you’re so kind to send items for my friend’s snail mail kit. I hope you’re safe and healthy!!!! Thanks for doing this swap with me :)
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter and cute stickers ! Loving the avocado washi tape 😍 also your friend Rita sounds amazing. I love how you both worked it out together, maintaining the long distance friendship. I know how it feels.
I hope she makes it for the olympics Tokyo 2020 !
Comment: The book by Ocean Vuong has been on my maybe to read list, so it was great that you wrote about his book. I am more interested in picking up this book and it is fresh in my mind again. Also I am excited to get to try ginseng tea for the first time!
Comment: Thank you for your card! I found the info you sent me very interesting. I'm not really sure about Calgary's Asian community. We have a China town but it's pretty small compared to most, just a few blocks. I do know many of the apartment building there require Asian ancestry to live in them.
Comment: I love what you did with the theme. Mushrooms are one of my favourites, it's fun to get an ATC featuring them. 💖
I wish there were more Canadians to swap ATCs with, it'd be easier on shipping fees !
Comment: Hi thanks so much for the swap , I love your PC
I have no career journal that is an idea to do one !! For retirement day, we get these indormations by our social office who calculate the amouint of our retirement

Comment: Thank you so much for the card and all that you wrote! I've never seen a card so full of text before! :) Funny that we're so close too! I hope you survived this week's snowfall, and that you haven't drowned in the rain. The card did make it mostly unscathed, though some of the text got hit by a few drops - probably during delivery. Sounds like you had a nice time with your friend's friend!
Comment: Thank you so much, I loved everything about your card, it was beautiful, and the gorgeous stickers you included. That was sooo sweet thank you so much for the personal touches, it meant a lot and made my day special! Take care <3
Comment: I love your ATC and the story behind it! I hope everything gets better for you soon!
Thank you so much for the kind comments about my ATC and artwork! I really appreciate it! The time it takes to finish pieces is the part that has gotten easier for me. I used to take so long to finish a simpler piece, but now it take two or three days, depending on how much I focus on it.
Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the great card. I loved reading it. I have pretty much the same goals as you have. But for me it is fabric not make-up. And I have the same approach with books. 💕 Good luck for both of us 😊
