Comment: Thank you for the wonderful envelope of happy mail. :) I loved all the postcards, and the "Little Miss Sunshine" art...that's one of my favorite movies! Your note included was also fun to read! Thank you for the swap!
Response: You're welcome! :) I'm glad you liked it. <3 Thank you for the heart
Comment: The Pc Was sent the day after due date (due 18 sent 19), apparently lost and resent . This would have been fine since it said day after but on top of the issues the Pc i received (second one sent aug 8) was coming apart and was smudged, it just felt rushed. Im giving the 5 rating for benefit of the doubt.
Comment: Thanks for enhancing the postcard. Had to look up the funky iron machine. Can not believe it is supposed to gut fish. No idea how it would work! So...do you especially like double ferris wheels (my favorite), or do you like the "regular" single wheel kind?
Response: Haha, me either. I have never experienced the double ferris wheel but now I'm extremely curious. GOOGLE !:)
Comment: I was finally able to stop by at home and pick up your package, and i'm kicking myself for not trying harder to get to it sooner, because you deserved to get recognition for it sooner! I won't gush here too much (private msg to follow tomorrow when I come back home for good) but trust me when I say that I was very much inspired when I went through the box, though hands down my favorite thing was the photo album, I was just floored by all the beautiful and interesting photographs, and it's amazing to me that it's something I can keep and not just look through and put back. Seriously, I love love love the way your mind works and how you see the world :)
Response: Its really cool that you liked what I sent. Im flattered. I was definitely hoping you would like the photo album. I would love to hear what else you thought in a pm. I hope youre having a great weekend. Im in san Diego right now. <3
Comment: Love the Envelope and the postage Jazz stamp. . I make some of my envelopes out of old calendars. And thanks for the extra goodies. I can use them in some of my creations. Have a great day. bearnbabs
Response: I'm glad you liked the envelope and found the contents useful!! :) <3
Comment: Very COOL! Thank you for the great envie, and I LOVE the grover address labels......nice swap.
Response: hahaha, grover is amazing. He was probably my 2nd favorite Sesame Street character. I kind of forgot about Sesame Street until I read the word "grover" on your profile though. So thank YOU for the memory burst! Thanks for the heart too, lovely.
Comment: You went above and beyord in your generousity. Thank you.
Response: Aw, I'm glad it did arrive and that the postal gods didn't eat/steal it! Aren't those neon yellow envies lovely?? I got them at THE BEST PAPER STORE in NYC (Paper Presentation). The website kind of stinks, but the store is a heaven-land. Haha. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: I love the memento page so much! The note on your drink from your boyfriend is SO sweet :) My relationship is rocky right now but one day I hope I have that!! Did you make the envelopes? They are so perfect. We have similar music tastes too. I'm going to check out the ones I haven't heard from your list. Thank you :D
Response: Yay! So glad you enjoyed it. If you like the songs I suggest let me know, I've got tons more! I'm glad you like everything eeeeee! That note from my boyfriend is so old and the older it gets the more special it gets. I'm sure you'll make it through your rough patch. We all have them. <3
Comment: I got behind on my ratings... this arrived some time last week and was very RANDOM, which is a good thing... LOL Such a variety of little bits and bobs of paper. So much to play and create with. Thank you so much for sending so much!! It will all be put to great use!!
Comment: Hey!! Dear gosh, where do I start? Basically you rock lol Walker was like "she's really cool!" after he read your letter, and while he loved everything you sent, he was impressed with the pogs, he said that he used to play with them a lot when he was younger and he was just delighted :) I personally thought the travel bingo cards you sent were fantastic, I can't wait to take a trip somewhere and play with them.....but yes, seriously, he was super happy with his box, and has already stated reading the Fairytail book you got him :) A bunches of thanks!
Response: Aw yayyy. I am glad he liked everything. POGS ROCK. :)
Comment: I am still missing the 3rd day/ letter but I am sure it is on the way. Thanks for the other presents, the cards are awsome!
UPDATE 24-1-2011: Today I actually got your first letter ! International mail service follows strange ways... Thanks once again!
Response: Aw I'm glad you like what you have received so far. I sent them one day at a time like we were supposed to so hopefully tomorrow you'll get #3!! Let me know if you don't and I'll resend. Thanks for the heart. UPDATE: Haha, that's pretty funny that the first one took the longest. Thanks for letting me know it arrived!
Comment: Hey! I did get your postcard (hence the rating :) ) I am so sorry I didnt rate you right away!
Thank you for the postcard,and yanno, I do think we should do a swap sometime, maybe in a month or so when I can feel caught up with everything!
Response: haha, okay sounds good! :) thanks for rating.
Comment: Just got your PC - thank you! Have you started your Happy Journal? Are you thinking about sending more mail art (or doing that)? Have you started your first weekly blog? Are you living, not just existing? Just trying to remind you!! ;) Also, I can recommend a lovely country for your travel outside of the USA. Starts with A, ends with A, and isn't Argentina, America or Austria. Not Antigua, (Antarctica,) Angola, Andorra or Armenia. Or Albania. Or Algeria. There's just one left! :D
Response: Ah! I'm glad you liked it. I just wrote in my Happy Journal, I blogged today, and I'm doing my best on the others. And I WANT TO GO TO AUSTRALIA SO BAD. Also, I didn't realize there were so many countries that begin AND end with "a". Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Now that is a coincidence - looking forward to 3 days of fun with you too ! Thanks for you nice comment on my profile. Well, I cannot play many cords on the guitar but I can play some to sing along or round the fire site. See you!
Response: Heheh, yay! I have 2 out of 3 of your envelopes done so I will probably start sending on Thursday or maybe even tomorrow! I hope they get to you quickly. :) Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you! You did a great job with this, really, I loved pretty much everything,(BIG thanks for the sketchbook and the font book!) though I have to say my favorite was the calender, I haven't gone through every month but it's just really thoughtful and creative :) I'll send you message later tommorrow!
Response: I'm so glad and relieved that you liked everything. I had fun making the calendar. That font book is pretty cool isn't it? Like I said, I imagine you incorporating words into your first tattoo so I thought that was important. Can't wait for your message. About to rate you!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful bird postcard! I absolutely love it! I am happy you enjoyed Chicago while you were here! I am in love with that city! I haven't seen 500 Days of Summer, but have wanted to for a long time - since there is an IKEA scene, I will be watching soon! :) Cheers for a Happy New Year!
Comment: Wow, what a lot of photot's thank you, I loved reading everything, and it arrived on the first day of my vacation, so it was just me, a cup of tea and your letter. Sounds like you had a lot of fun making it, just as much as I reading it, thanks again!!
Response: That sounds like a fabulous way to go through a pile of pictures, :) I did have a lot of fun with making it and taking the pictures for you. I'm glad you enjoyed it and thank you for the heart. :)
Comment: I am not sure I have the words to thank you enough for what you sent me for this swap. It was above and beyond anything I could have hoped for or expected, You earned that heart for not only how much you sent but HOW you sent it (LOVED what you used as an envelope, very creative!!) and WHAT you sent. I loved looking through everything and saw a lot of things that I instantly knew I was going to be able to use! Def. one of the best packages I got this year!
Response: awww thank you so much for your nice words! i was really excited it got to you so fast (but then I remembered it was going MD - MD) hehe. I'm excited you enjoyed the gypsy LP! :) You can thank @17papergoddess for that creative sending technique. :) I hope you can use some of the stuff and thank you very much for the heart. <3
Comment: Hi Mary, I received the package today, and you really made my day :) Thank you so much! I love almost all the lettersets that you sent for me. My fave is the one with the "Quacky" word on it! Thank you thank you!
Response: so glad you enjoyed it and that it reached you :) thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome lettersets! I especially love the "air mail" and Cupcake ones!! :) Sure, i'd enjoy a private swap.... you'll have to pm me to let me know what you'd like to swap, though!! :/
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the stationery! :) I'll PM you soon.
Comment: WOW!!! That was the coolest swap to unwrap! It was like a come to life "I Spy" box! I love everything! I took it to my classroom and showed my kids- they were going crazy! Now they want to do one with our neighbor classroom! Oh also love the Gorey card-that was too neat! THANK YOU!
Response: ah! I'm SO glad you liked it all. :) That was a seriously fun package to put together even if some of the letters were challenging. :) you can hanks @17papergoddess for the gorey card. :) that was one of the ones I was waiting on! I SPY Rocks.
Comment: Just lovely and wonderful :D I got it this afternoon, and I haven't even gone through everything, but I can already tell you did a really great job with this, and i'll be sending you a longer message after the weekends done so I can properly thank you :)
Response: Eeee I'm glad you liked the way it looked aesthetically. I feel like the outside looks better than what they actual gifts are, but that's what we planned. So I'm very glad you liked the presentation. I can't wait to get yours. What was your favorite package? You must let me know details!! <3
Comment: oh you delightfully naughty girl! Matching subscriptions to Playgirl/Playboy for me & the love monkey. Arent you just a dear! lol. And a new tube o' lube tucked into the zebra striped undies.You so Rock! They will fit him beautifully! Who knew you could buy so many fun things on the internet late at night?
Response: ♥ i knew you'd love them. and i fully expect pictures of the undies in use!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome Charley Harper postcard, I love it! You're right, the directions are really neat, and I love the way the four colors work together, the curves and straight lines, the way the birds are looking out, all of it. So cool! (And I never fully trust MapQuest, I'll wind up in a lake.)
Response: i'm so glad you enjoy it! :) and yeah man, mapquest blows. thank you so much for the heart. <3
Comment: Look 'who' is here? YAY! Finally I got it. Mary, you got me a new book! It wasn't necessary. You' an angel, sweetie. Thank you very, very much! I also loved the card. Just gorgeous! Loootta love, Lilian
Comment: I have never been to the Stone Pony. Great postcard! Thanks!
Response: Yay! Thanks for the heart. Haha, can I tell you a story about the Stone Pony though? I think I mentioned some of it on your postcard, but we drove there at 9PM, got there around 12AM, went to pay for a motel room but I couldn't find my wallet. So we drove around looking for it wherever we had been and got pulled over by a cop who thought it was weird that two 20 year old girls were coming out of the 'biggest drug motel' in the area. !! So we drove home. 6 hours of driving in one night for nothing. Uhm. Hahah. Good news is that someone mailed me my wallet that I left at a rest area. Minus the cash and gift cards!
Comment: Mary!!!! Dear god woman, this is hands down THE best, most thoughtful, most awesome most "anything" parcel (s) i've ever gotten from since i've been on here, you are a goddess :D Seriously, my face was like :O when i opened up just the envelope, and then you can guess how I looked after that lol I can only hope that my parcel comes half as close to yours! I"m off to send you a message now so I don't continue to babble in "public" :P
Response: I responded via message, but (publicly) I'm very very glad you liked it and thank you for the heart. I am getting antsy waiting for your package. Tomorrrrrrrow. <3
Comment: What a lovely surprise I woke up to this morning ! 235 is my favourite too. I can't believe you took it ! It looks so professional. Close second: 320. My. Gosh. I love him. What is his name !? VERY close third: 295. I adore this pic, M Dawg. And the Snoopy balloon thing is awesome, REALLY awesome. These are by far my favourite set ! And they're all by YOU. You're so creative, everything is gorgeous. I love how you see the beauty in such uncommon things.
Response: 235 is my favorite too. I made it my desktop background. His name is Sebastian. He was funny. Andddd I love those umbrellas too! :) Snoopy made me happy/sad. And thank you for the wonderful words, my dear. I love you.
Comment: Oh Mary... what and outstanding journal.. I love, love, love it.. HUGSSSS a bunch.. I love the way you decorated it and so many neat pockets and treasures.. I love the way you have used a book for your creation.. that is just so much fun!!..You really did look at my profile.. and so many thanks for the birthday card.. (((HUGS)))
Response: aw yay! i'm so glad it arrived before your birthday. happy birthday again! thanks for the heart. it was a big project! (i know we're friends on Flickr..and I forgot to take pictures of it. if you have time, would you mind??) thanksssssss!
Comment: I love your descriptions, girly. Such fun reading through them on my phone before and then getting on my PC and looking at the pic to see if they look how I imagined. The lip bite girl's eyes are gorrrgeous and the swingset is damn emo.
Response: haha, but i'm emo at heart!!! hahahha. you're awesome.
Comment: I saw the Baltimore pic and could just imagine you singing, "Good morning, Baltimorrrrrrrrrrre". Eek, I love the coloured leggings too,wow. I could never pull them off, so I'll just leave it to everyone else. The "I love you." texts are so cute. Did you notive the full stop at the end of each ? I love you means more to me with a full stop. It's more of a statement. ANd the twiliring pic is gorgeous, makes me feel like I'm there !
Response: i bet you could totally pull off leggings. i'm going to dress you up like a barbie. i loved that twirling pic. it wasn't able to be right clicked so i prntscrn-ed it. BAHAH.
Comment: Such gorgeous pics ! I love that little monster, ohmygosh I think I'm gonna dress my kid in that on regular days ! And I love the dreaming pic... so beautiful ! The happy this way pic, I actually have a Photoshop brush based on that which I use often. And I love your rainbow explanations:) I know StumbleUpon. I have it ! I usually use it for recipes, though mehehehe. Maybe you should too ;)
Response: Haha, this is so much fun. This is my idea offffffffff fun.
Comment: Great match-ups. Big thank you for the recipe cards!!
Response: aw, I'm glad you like the way I thought to match them up, hehe. And guess what?? Those recipe cards cost me ONE PENNY. I got them at Michael's and they rang up as one cent. I was flabbergasted. :)
Comment: Oh my gosh Marrrrrrry, I love your map ! I think I might just copy that idea. WOW. It's AWESOME. I love your polka dot bag. It was really great getting to know you a bit more. I love you x
Response: You should definitely copy my map. If I trusted any postal system more I would send you one but the one that I tried to send ONE STATE over got trampled in the system. :( The map is huge and glorious and a good marker of where I've sent to/received from. <3
Comment: It caaaaaaame! I loved the tape you sealed it with, too! And the CD, ahhh most of my favorites! I love you! But that doesn't mean I forgive you for resending it.... :) Kidding. <3
Response: bahah, i'm glad you love me still. isn't that tape adorable? tell me how a roll of it was $1. you have michaels right? it's in the dollar aisle. also, if you don't have any i will send you some. thank you for rating and also, the heart. LOVE.
Comment: Thank you for checking my profile. I know I'll enjoy listening to the sampler CDs and using the address labels. The Format Dog Problems album is just the sleeve and lyrics without the CD ?
Response: Oh really? I don't know what happened to it then. I have a pile of them from when my boyfriend worked at a Record store but I'll look to see if maybe it slipped out before mailing. Thanks for the heart though and for joining this swap! I appreciate it.
Comment: Words cannot express how much I love your card! Thanks for the surprise 11th thing to be happy about- i love the labels :) It is so great to know there are people in this world willing to make a complete stranger so happy! Thank you, happiness-spreader!
Response: aw!! thank you so much!! i'm so glad you liked my list and the card and the address labels. that's awesome. :-)
Comment: Wowzie ! ! Big time.. What a great package.. I so love everything.. and there so much there..!!...I've put the thimbles in the shadow box in the kitchen. I was out of address labels and love the ones you sent.. I Love the note brads.. and puzzle pieces.. they are grand.. The sticker were PERFECT.. and so love the "Color Purple" card. I love the key and bottle of goodies... I put the stationary set on my fridge...The photo Holders are going on my mantle.. and the seeds.. Oh my goods.. what great bunch of seeds. I wish I could give you a thousand hearts.. Such a wonderful swap partner.. you really made my day.. Plus the Cards book.. I swear it must be my Birthday or Christmas.. HUGS! !
Response: aww! thank you so much for your kind words. i'm so excited that you like it all! isn't that 'color purple' card awesome? my local blockbuster was closing and selling all their dvd art cards for like 20 cents each. :) have a beautiful day, hope to swap with you again soon.
Comment: Yes, that certainly was a strange card!
Thanks! I know what you mean about the memories and nostralgia. My mother is still
living but is 92 and in a nursing home. My father died in 1985. I went through a couple of boxes of letters, photos and cards, from their home recently and it made me very sad. ~Gail
Response: Yeah it can be really hard to do stuff but kind of a relief to purge it too. Thanks for the heart and for rating. I hope you have a superb rest of your day! :)
Comment: Thanks for the postcard, I have that box of cards and love them :) It's nice to get one! I love the random man in the background with an accordion. I have seen the new Alice, I liked Johnny Depp. Did you enjoy it?
Response: I love getting postcards that I send out like that. It's so much fun to get your own without it being blank. :) I saw the new Alice too. I liked it, it was different than what I thought though. But you are right...Johnny Depp is where it's at! He can make any film better. :) Thanks for my 250th heart!
Comment: I am so glad I met you ! â™¥ What an adorable, random array of items ! Mischievous habits - hahahhaa, you didn't know this, but I have such a THING for nuns ! (from my Catholic high school days) and Toilets of the World... hahahaa, Mary, you make me laugh. This is going on the currently naked back-of-the-door in my bathroom. AND THE MARTHA MAGAZINEâ™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥ It's proudly sitting on my table. And all the dino goodies - yayayayayay so much happiness. I love the colour-your-own dinosaur PCs. Oooooooooh, speaking of which, YAY for your PCs that you sent me - awesome dino one and Office one ! I love you Mary, oh I do I do I do ooh.
Response: Haha, it's been so long I forgot what I sent. When I was in the book store it was mmm....February? And they had all their calendars for $1 on clearance and I was looking through just randomly. Saw the toilets AND the nuns one and immediately thought CAYLEE. So I'm so glad I was spot on. I hope the Martha Magazine puts some good inspiration in your mind. :) I bought one of those color your own dinosaur PC books for myself too. We should color them together...somehow, lol. hhaha. I sent you so much mail.
Comment: Oh, I will miss these neon envelopes. What a pleasure it has been to have connected with you every week, all month. I've been intrigued and challenged and have looked forward to that electric yellow-green in my mailbox. I loved every word but the Betty Crocker recipe cards were my fave. My son wants you to know the whimsy jar was his "favorite thing in the whole world." I have intended to write you a real letter and I promise I will. A thousand thank you's.
Response: the pleasure was all mine, mah lady!!! :) :) :)
Comment: OH my goodness Mary, I love it all , as long as it took it came today and I was super excited, thank you so much for doing this swap with me <3
The photo album of art was such a cute idea and I am so going to finish it, maybe i will then make copies and send you the photos when its done... thanks sooooo much.
Response: you're so welcome! I'm so relieved that it finally got there. the photo album was definitely my favorite part of what i sent you so i'm happy you mentioned it. :) enjoy!!
Comment: Thank you so much for this excellent package, and especially for the plethora of postcards. My collection needed some new blood. Thanks especially for understanding what I like in PCs just from reading my profile. :) HEARTS! HEARTS!
Response: so welcome! this was a great swap. and i'm glad i was able to mix up your postcard collection a bit! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the great mail! The clear envie was great - loved seeing all the contents inside before opening it! And loved how you read my profile and sent things I need/love! It really made my day - thanks so much!
Response: I'm so glad it finally got there and that it made your day. I love to hear that. :) This was such a cool idea for a swap.
Comment: Thanks for the very romantic postcard. I loved the little writing at the bottom. "For Correspondence" with the fountain pen. I'd love to hear where you got the postcard.
Response: If I remember correctly I purchased it at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. They have the best gift shop of any museum I've ever been too. I highly recommend a vacation to Maryland simply to go to AVAM. :) thanks for the heart, glad you liked it.
Comment: I was always partial to John and to George. Then Ringo then Paul. Not that I disliked Ringo or Paul at all but there was something about John and George that really interested me and still does. I actually prefer Paul in his solo career than as a Beatle. thanks so much for the card--it's one of my favorite photos of any band.
Response: perfection! I like that you liked it. and i like John and Ringo. I played rock band for the first time Beatles style and it was awesome. I'm a demon on the drums. :)
Comment: Wow - pink glitter! Everywhere! LOL!
I opened the package in my car at the PO and all this glitter started flying out so I decided I'd better finish at home in my craft room. The cap of the glitter tube had come off. Most of it was still in the tin so I was able to save it. Good thing because I love it and didn't have any before.
Anyway, this is a wonderful package full of goodies that I will enjoy using for a long time. I really needed the matchboxes and tin so I can do more swaps with them. I was totally out. Its good to swap with you - next week you will be getting something from me!
Response: aw yesss i'm so glad you got it. i'm sorry that the glitter exploded that sucks but at least it seems managable. thanks!
Comment: Thanks for the card! I've been to DC twice...once for a weekend when I went to with one of my friends who has family there then we went back for a week last January to attend the Presidential Inauguration.
Comment: OMG, what an amazing envie of inspiration! Love everything! The blood capsules and little wind-up vampire were so thoughtful, given my current project! :) The journal and day planner will definitely be put to good use, as will the pens and white-out! Love the photos and quotes, and I think I might make some of them into a collage to hang over my desk! The CD is fantastic, and this is totally the kind of stuff I'd be into if I were still young and energetic enough to keep up with current music! :P (The one song I recognized was "Babylon," which is one of my faves!) Oh and I can't wait to check out all those links! Amazing, amazing, amazing. My only disappointment with this package is the fact that it caused you so much stress! Really, it could not have been more perfect! Would love to do some kind of private swap sometime if you're interested. THANK YOU, MARY!!!!!
Response: yayyay!!!! it was fun to put together despite my swap-block. i wouldn't necessarily call it stress haha. i'm so glad you liked everything and i appreciate you rating me and for the heart. and yeah! babylon is awesome. thank you so much.
Comment: Haha thanks for all the cute little things that were in the bags! It was neat to open
Response: yay! i'm glad you liked it. it was weird sending whimsy stuff without a jar and i didn't want everything to fly out on you when you opened the envelope, hence the baggies. thanks for the heart!
Comment: Wow! That envie certainly was stuffed. :) I love the postcard (you took a beautiful photo!), the mix (yessss! definitely my kind of music), the psychotic duck postcard made me laugh, ahhhhh! So many goodies and so many of my favorite things included. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Response: perfect rating for my 150th heart. :D
Haha, yeah that psychotic duck postcard seemed right up your alley. I had actually bought it the day before i assigned partners. thanks for joining my swap and for the heart. enjoy the mix! let me know later if you like it.
Comment: â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ I love you â™¥ Okay, please don't judge me, it might be because I am emotional, but I literally cried when I received your parcel. It. Is. The. Best. Swap. I've. EVER. Received ! I just kept opening and opening and opening. And being more and more surprised and more happy. w.o.w. I phoned my boyfriend immediately and raved to him for half an hour. Eventually he told me. "You know you haven't told me exactly what's in the box yet". Mary.â™¥ I love my...

And you are soooooooooooo cute as a little girl. Wow. What a great picture of you ! It looks professional ...okay I'm writing too long about it and am starting to forget things popping into my head â™¥ those pencils ! yay. glitter. yay. The Little Mermaid. yay. bunniess. yay. Maryland. hahahaha, too cool â™¥ THE SNAIL STAMP !!!!!!! I have been wanting something like that for so long now.

How am I ever going to use all of it:):):) â™¥ and you wrapped everything .... it really did feel like Christmas ! There is so much more that I loved besides all of this. I took some amazing photos ;) I love you !! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: YAY!!!!!! 1) I am so glad it got to you in less than a month. 2) The fact that you liked it this much makes me so happy. I'm soo glad you liked it all and I apologize for the crappy wrapping (which you didn't mention bless your heart) but pretty much, you're awesome so I had to do something awesome for you. haha. YAY.
Comment: Thanks for the Ankylosaurus postcard. I'll bet you have a pile of these cool dinosaur postcards, just waiting for a swap!
Response: haha, not really. i found those at a postcard store and had three of them so i thought i'd host a swap for them and make sure they went to people who would appreciate them. :) glad you liked it and thanks for rating so quickly.
Comment: Sorry it took me so long to rate. I don't really have a good excuse, just had a stack to go thru and hadn't got to it yet. But I did love this card. I am enjoying these challenges too. Looking for a particular card that fits the parameters. Harder than it looks. How cool you have the largest postcard store there. That must be loads of fun to go to.
Response: please don't worry about it! i was just scared it didn't get to you because i only have one of those and i thought it was a really neat card. :) yeah challenges are awesome. especially postcard ones because i have a ton. yeah its a fun store but they don't get a lot of new stuff in so you kind of have to space out the trips.
Comment: By far the best swap I have received - Thanks!!! I love it all!!
Response: Really?! I am so glad. I only mailed that like, a day or two ago. And I think I put it in the 'local mail' box by accident. Anyway, I'm glad it got to you so quickly and that you enjoyed it. :) Have a fantastic day.
Comment: Thank you for all the brads, buttons, ribbons and extras. You are very generous and I appreciate all the things you sent. Now to get busy and make good use of them. Thanks again, Mary
Response: aw yay! i'm soo glad you liked what i managed to cram into that small bubble mailer. i love that size to send but its hard to get the awesome stuff in there haha. i hope you make some great stuff with it!
Comment: Thank you SO much! I love the little Alice notebook, I've never seen anything like that before..and Iove the kawaii notepad and all the papers :) The mixed cd is perfect too, loads of bands that I love! Thank you for swapping with me :D
Response: so glad you liked it! i found that Alice notebook at a little shop called the forget me not factory in a little railroad town. i knew you had to have it!
Comment: Thanks for the postcard and note. Hope you are having a great summer. I am in a mega swap for map cards. Hopefully, I will be getting a Maryland map card. If you would like one from California, let me know and I will send you one. Linda
Response: ah! okay. well as long as you get one. :) and i'm glad you liked the postcard.
thanks for the heart.
Comment: MARY.. A BIG THANK YOU (AND HUG) FOR THE POSTCARD!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.. MY HUSBAND DOES, TOO. IT'S ON OUR REFRIGERATOR AS WE SPEAK. WOOHOO.
MIX TAPES ARE THE BEST!! HAVE GOOD ONE, NEW FRIEND!
Response: Eee! I'm so glad you enjoyed the postcard. Have a beautiful day and maybe we can swap postcards in the future!
Comment: Thank You! I loved the stuff in here. Thank you for specifically asking me what my fav colors were and putting in a lot of them. I have never seen those melting soap things and they are awesome. I am in love. I also love all the little crafty things. I have been using them up quite rapidly. Great Swap!
Response: aw, i'm glad you liked what i chose. it was fun to put together! thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Ok, so I really have no idea what I liked or loved more:) I love it all.....ok, maybe the cd is the best of them all, cause i was in need of new music.....or the star stickers, so cute, or wait maybe the yellow and orange cards with mis-match envies, oh and the pretty ribbon, oh an i loved the index cards......and the matchbox was sweet, too. i loved swapping with you. thanx for making it fun:)
your YELLOW/ORANGE sister, Toni: KTHANXBYE
Response: YAY!! SO glad you liked it all. I had a feeling you would. Was the matchbox really okay? I hope so. Because I want to learn more! Keep in touch! --Mary
Comment: Hi Mary. Thanks for sending me the buttons. Unfortunately, the airmail postal system didn't like your envelope. I'm sorry to say that both the envelope and the little plastic bag both split, so that only 2 buttons remained inside. I found two more on my doormat, making a grand total of four. I am still rating a 5, because obviously it is not your fault. What a shame though! :( :( UPDATE: re-send recieved. Thank you so much!
Response: OH NO! I am so upset! stupid postal system. :( never fear, you shall receive your buttons, roflcopter. i even wrote a note. did that make it there safely at least? i am going to send the sturdiest (is that a word?) envelope i own and you shall be button happy. just give it another week or so. :( that makes me so sad.
Comment: Wow, Mary, I'm impressed. I pretty much love EVERY card you sent me. I would love to do a private swap with you. Perhaps a mix cd swap with a little profile surprise thrown in for good measure? Two tricky things about this: (1) Are you cool with getting mostly unplugged/singer/songwriter type music 'cause that's pretty much all I have and (2) My cd burner has been giving me a LOT of grief of late. Perhaps once you respond to #1 I will try to burn a cd for you. If it works I'll set up a private swap. Cool wth you?
Response: I would LOVE to do a private swap with you! And I don't care what you send me even if I haven't heard it, as long as you think I'll like it based on my current music interests. :-)
Also, take as much time as you need with the cd burning process, I know what it's like to have a tempermental cd burner. You know what?...I'll PM you. Hahaha. Thanks for the heart though!
Comment: I actually like your commandments, esp #10. The Disney land pc is pretty but half of it was peeled off and I could see what was written on it haha
Response: Haha, :-( I found that at an antique shop and couldn't pass it up even though it was used already. That's why I mounted it on the cardstock. That stinks that it peeled through the mail. I'm glad you liked the commandments though. That's what's important. Thanks for rating!
Comment: This card is really special to me! I've always sent these cards out, the babysitter's club ones, but I've never actually received any! Thanks :) Oh, and thanks for the compliment on my music taste! We'll see what we can do about that private swap.
Response: Aw, yay!! i'm happy you liked it. just contact me about the music swap if you want to. :-)
Comment: Hi Mary!
I got your awesome package in the mail today! Thanks for sending all the wonderful items. I love it all. You did a great job! I can't wait to use it all...and I love the extras you sent as well!
Comment: Thank you so much for the great package. I love how you interpreted some of the words. I really love the book. I remember loving the story when I was little, and I sat down and read it to my three year old today, who loved it, too. Wonderful package, thank you very much.
Response: i'm so glad that you enjoyed it!
i had fun doing it.
enjoy your day. :)
Comment: Thank you for your card of sticker-y goodness! I love the variety, and in particular I love the one that is a spray can of bug spray (my eyes zeroed in on it immediately!). Also, thanks for writing a real message. I appreciate that. Be well! Stella
Comment: Awesome mix! There were quite a few I considered using myself.
Response: Really? That's awesome!
I just kind of used my own music collection to make your cd since you don't really have any musical preferences listed. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
What's your favorite band?
