Comment: Omigosh, Laura! I'm so sorry that I wrongly rated this swap a 1! I was checking through my postcard box today for another swap and came across this one from you. I remember when it came and I totally missed rating it. I'm so sorry that you have been suspended and I'm even more deeply sorry if I had anything to do with that because of the rating that I gave you for this swap. I've always enjoyed receiving your swaps. Again, I am so sorry for this mistake that I made. :-(
Comment: I just wanted to say that you went above and beyond for this swap and I truly appreciate all the Christmas and NYE goodies. I will for sure use them this holiday season! I hope whatever is going on with your suspension gets worked out because you were a great swap partner. Happy Holidays and THANK YOU!
Response: Thank you...I added somethings because of the money situation! I'm glad you liked everything!! Thank you for the heart!! Happy Swapping:)
Comment: Laura... There was no newspaper...it was all advertising.... and classifieds.... But thank you
Response: Sorry about that. It would have cost way to much to send the whole paper. I would like to see what things are costing in other parts of the world, thats why I sent what I did!! Thank you for the heart!! Happy swapping:)
Comment: I loved the Xmas tote, what a great package!
Response: I'm soo glad you liked it!! I was afrraid I was going to get a 3 because I sent you new things!! i couldn't find really anything a the thrift store:( I'm sooo happy you liked it and Thank you for the Heart!! Happy Swapping:)
Comment: Thanks for this cute Christmas card. We put the tree up 1 or 2 days before Christmas. We always have a real tree and buy it one week before Christmas! :) Have a happy Christmas time.
Response: Oh thats awesome! We can't have a real trea in our apartment:( But I don't want the mess either!! I love having my tree up for so long, other than our new cats and puppy are destorying the decorations, which I'm very very upset about!! Thank you for the rating and Happy Swapping:)
Response: 11-30-11 resent today:)
Thank you for the rerate...I'm sorry the first one never receahed you!! I'm just glad you got the 2nd one I sent you!! Thank you VERY much for the 5!!! Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Cutest snowmen!! ALL OF THEM!
Thanks so so so much! :)
Happy Holidays :)
Response: I'm so glad you loved them!! I hope they didn't break!!!! I tried to send extras cause I didn't want you to think I jipped you and didn't know the average price!! So I'm happy!! Happy Holidays!! Thank you for the heart and Happy Swapping:)
Comment: O...M...G !!!!! There are not enough hearts! This swap went above and beyond! OK, I peeked, but didn't open the card and put everything back in and taped it all back up so my husband will be surprised and HOPEFULLY be able to wait til Christmas to open - but I wanted to go ahead and let you know so I peeked ;O) This was an incredible swap full of things my husband and nephew will just LOVE! It appears you put such care into choosing things exactly that match them! He probably won't even get gifts he likes this much from our own family! And it was way more than what was required for the swap, with no expense spared on the postage either! Laura, thank you so so so much for your heartfelt selections (including but not limited to pecan pralines, a big European caramel chocolate bar, a full bag of mints, an abundance of manly travel toiletries, the Listerine pocket packs he loves, pens, patriotic notepad, a snowglobe and more, and wonderful goodies he can give his nephews including snowman slippers and MORE!). This really made my day and will make his Christmas complete! Thank you SO much! And to add, it arrived completely on time. A WONDERFUL swap!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! And I hope your husband and newphew will love everything!! I had my son's help!! WHo also loved the slippers but can't find them!! I really tried my hardest!! I printed out your lovely list and went shopping!! I don't have many things for men at my home, except things my husband will eat/enjoy, so I headed out shopping!! It really didn't cost all that much I swear...well I bought other things so I don't know how much it reallly was!! I'm so glad you liked it which should mean they will enjoy it even more!!! I wasn't going for the best gift!! Trust me!! I was just trying to please!! We had a good time though, and in return they will enjoy it!! Thank you for letting me know, and if you can let me know what they think about it as well, please:) Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Got you package last wednesday. Loved it so much. I already had a few american coins seen as I went to LA a few months ago and I also collect US State Quarters but I enjoyed making this swap either way.

Comment: Thanks to Blake for the drawings and stickers on the homemade card! Kitt was happy to get one from Blake, since this is the second time they have been involved in a swap together.

Response: Your welcome:) I tend to go overboard for the children!!! I sure hope the kido/s like it (sorry can't remember how many you have) But I'm sure they will!! Thank you for the Heart!! Happy Swapping:)
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Many years ago we rode the ferry under the bridge, and I was so scared because I don't know how to swim but it was a nice ride.
Response: Yeah I;ve been on top and bottom, being on the top is more scary because I was afraid the bridge was going to cave in:( LOL But I'm glad you liked it and thank you for the rating!! Happy Swapping:)
Comment: Thank you so much for everything I'm sure my son will love your choices. We both loved the card from your little one. We hung one picture on the fridge and the other one in my son's room (per his instructions).
Response: I'm sure he will to!! I'm glad you liked his card!! I'll be sure to tell him!! Thats soo cute he wanted the picture in his room!! Thank you for the heart!! I would love to swap with you again especially for the kids!! Happy Swapping:) I have a Great Holiday to you and yours!!!
Comment: "Can I ask why you rated me a 1? You should contact people about things before rating down..This is how swap-bot works....Did you not open the attachment it was sent in an email?"
1-I never got anything, seems pretty self-explanatory. If I don't get a swap, I can't rate you a 5 or a 3. That's how swap-bot works. Email attachments, especially those from strangers, are rife with viruses and other malware as most people know. That's why, here on swap-bot, you'll find many swappers refuse to deal with them and email swaps should be completed by copy-paste as a courtesy to your swap partners.
Response: Thank you for changing my 1...I did send it in an email attachment to all my 20 partners..I had only had 1 person ask to resend it in the actual email....I'm sorry you didn't ask me to send if you didn't get anything from me....I would suggest..my opinion only if you don't receive something especially by email to ask someone if they sent or to resend...it may have gone to your junk mail...Thank you again for marking a 5...Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving:)
Comment: Thank you for the braclets and card
Edit: yes i like them very much they will go fabulous with my christmas top for christmas day and i am thankful that you took the time and put the effort into sending the to me thank you
Response: Your Welcome!! DId you like the Braclets? Happy Swapping:)
Comment: Thank you. The postcard is so pretty. I agree that cold weather can be yucky. But I do so enjoy the soups & stews that I fix when it's cold & don't forget the hot cocoa. And I do love it when it snows! Have a great day.
Response: Thank you for the Heart:) I would love to come over for some soup and stew!!
Comment: thanks for the letter and pc! i still have to write you back from your first letter but i am going through some loss of family and have tons of penpals and swaps to catch up with when i return home! happy holidays!
Response: I'm sorry to hear that!!! Don't worry about writing me back...I don't really have time to write anyone back myself..with all these Dr. appts from mycar accident!!! Happy Swappin:)
Comment: Hi Laura, There were four postcards in your envelope and the swap was for five. That's OK. Thank you.
Response: I'm so sorry...What other card could I send you? What did I sent you? Please let me know!!! Please PM me or something...I did not mean to do that I swear!!! Please let me know so I can send!!!
Comment: Sorry about the late rating, your email got sent to my junk folder! How rude of my email! I can't believe you've had so many surgeries, I sure hope you don't have to endure any more!
Response: Thank you for your concern!! I really hope so as well..But with all my problems I know I will have to.I may have to have back and neck surgery in the near future!! I hope you and yours have a GREAT holiday season!! :)

Comment: Thanks! If the Christmas card that was in the outer envelope is for another swap you'll have to let me know (I'm not even sure if this rating is the right one), no note included makes it hard to rate!
Comment: Hi Laura (again:0) I too love the autumn, the colors, the smells. Unfortunately, the leaves here in Vegas all get together and say 1-2-3-drop! If we want to see color change we go to the mountains...where we have snow this weekend! Pretty:0) Teri
Comment: You need to do what you need to do. Life is too short to take that crap. You deserve better. Do it. Sending my love! P.S. what a beautiful PC! I love autumn. The barrels of honeycrisps make my mouth water!

Comment: Hi Laura, Thanks for the great selection of cards. The zip code helped to get the cards here, for I don't live in MI..Are you living anywhere near Duluth? MY grandson just moved up to there, and we miss him!!

Comment: Thank you so much for the cute postcard and letter! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and fall is my favorite season, so the postcard with the pumpkin "couple" is perfect! I will be in touch, and thanks for a great swap!
Response: Your soo very welcome. I loved the card too!! No hurry getting back to me, as I am SOOOO far behind it's not even funny!!
Comment: I'm so sorry to be tardy in rating you! I went off on a trip just after getting your cute fawn card and forgot to post before leaving. I enjoyed your letter, and hope your arm is healed by now!
Response: Oh thats perfectly fine!! I'm trying to go back through my 1000 of letters, PCs, and Envelopes I got to make sure I didn't miss any ratings:) Have a Great Day!!
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful PC i actually prefer them to come to me blank, so no problem there and when I signed up I didn't understand what naked meant, I'm still new at this
thanks also for the nice letter and penpal request. I will be getting back to you
Response: :) thats good:) I prefer mine in an envelope, even if they write on it!! I'm tired of having my PCs damaged and ruined!! Have a Great Day
Comment: Laura, though you sent a greeting card instead of a postcard, how can I complain? It was a beautiful Thanksgiving card - my first one this year! ;) - and I loved your newsy letter about yourself. I feel like I got a bonus in this swap. So for effort you get a heart! Thank you so much for a fun piece of mail!

Comment: Hi Laura, thank you so much for the two cards, I like them! And also thank you for your letter. At the moment I'm quite busy with many things and can't find the time to relax and write a long letter but I might reply it soon. :)
Response: ok thats fine..Don't worry about it...because if you knew how far behind I was you would say WOW:) LOL Anyways glad you liked the cards:)

Response: Glad you liked the PCs!! Can't wait to hear back from you!! Just warning you now...I'm VERY VERY far behind, so it may take me sometime to get back to your letter!! I'm sooo sorrty....Also you may have to remind me to write you back, because I was in a severe car accident and I had a closed head injury, so I'm now I'm suffering from Brian Truama!! Please don't feel sorry for me though:)
Comment: Thanks =) I know nothing about Hong Kong, since I live in Norway, but if you want to know about this place take a look at the very top of my profile, there is a link there I think you would enjoy!
Response: oh no...what did I do write HongKong??:( I can't keep remembering all of this stuff :( I'm so sorry for the mistake!!
Comment: Thank you for the letter! There was no postcard in the envie, though you said there was in the letter. I'm not disappointed, just a bit confused! Thank you again for the letter, I liked to hear about your travels! I would love to visit all the states as well =)
Response: Sorry I didn't put a card in it, but it wasn't required and I must not have thought to put it in there!! So I don't know why I didn't get a heart!!:(
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful PC and letter! I really hope your arm/hand heals soon! It's terrible to have to deal with that! I'm going to write you back, if that's okay with you! Have a wonderful day, and FEEL BETTER! <3 Chels
Response: Thank you soo very much!! I hope to hear from you soon!! I appreciate all the best wishes you sent!! Makes me feel really good!
Comment: Hi there....I love the pc, but I think you mixed up your addresses! Your letter was addressed to a Susan. If that's indeed the case, let me know and I can re-route the card and letter to her. But I appreciate the effort of the lovely letter! (even if it wasn't to me...LOL)
Response: No I don't know what I was thinking....I think Im lossing my mind!!:(
Comment: Such a beautiful and colorful PC of the Michigan wildflowers, and I love that it names them on the back! Perfect for me! Thank you for your kind note - I will try to write you back soon! Hope your injury heals quickly and happy wishes to Blake!! :) <3
Response: Glad you liked it!! I hope to hear from you, but I know how it is to be behind...I'm sooo far being....Thanks for the best wishes to me and my son Blake!!
Comment: Welcome to swap-bot. I feel ya on the limitations of swaps, but that is sort of what its meant for. There are lots of pen pal groups and swaps I'm sure you'd love.
We get all four seasons in Kentucky. Winter, spring, summer and my favorite, fall! The weather right now is absolutely perfect. Kentucky gets a fair amount of snow during the winter, though it seems like we've gotten a TON the past few years.
Thanks for the post card. :)
Response: I am not limited anymore on swaps, it was just till I had completed 5 and they rated me!! So thats goo!! What other penpal sites are out there? I like fall as well, but I just know WINTER is coming and I HATE that season!! Hear in MI we get ALOT of SNOW!!! Hope to hear from you!!
Comment: Laura, I read your note, and thank you so much for it, very nice, if you want to read more about me, look at my profile.... also try Postcrossing .com.... I belong under the same ID and its great.... Did you want a new penpal....? Thank you Pat
Please let me know...
Comment: Thanks so much for the Zazzle card (is that Lake St. Clair...I grew up in St. Clair Shores) and the great letter. Hope your arm is healing!
Response: Yes that is!! I'm glad you liked your card, it was the only Zazzle one I had at the time!!:( Thank you for wishing me well, I kinda need it!! I'm sorry for putting yours in an envelope but I like to write letters and I couldn't even write that much on the card because of my arm/hand. I'm glad you understood about the envelope!!
Comment: Thanks for the card. It wasn't supposed to be in an envelope, though.
Response: I have a Broken arm/hand, there wasn't anyway I could write everything I wanted to say on the card, even if I just shortened it. So either it would have been taped on or envelope. I told the director this before I sent. So I appreciate a 5 but I thought I put the reason on there as to why it was in an envelope!! I'm sorry
