Comment: Thank you for the nice San Francisco coastal postcard. I have still not been over there yet, but would love to visit. What's the best time of year? Things are going well with me here in Korea, thanks for asking. Just at work now and about to start teaching my first class of the day.
Comment: I'm so excited for Fall, too! Thanks so much for this cool card, and sorry about the tardy rating. There was a desk-alanche and everything got buried. :(:(:( I like these vintage stamps, too. THANKS! :):):)
Comment: Thank you so much for another wonderful postcard! I love the cute stickers you added and also the beautiful writing of my name! You add great stamps which are so much better then the seashells and corals lol! It adds such a nice touch! :)
Comment: Hi Micaela! Thanks for the cool card and awesome stamps! I love the one that says Champion of Liberty since it's my daughter's name. I love the way you wrote my name is lovely script. These are all new (old) stamps to me, haven't seen them before. Thanks so much! :):):)
Comment: I'm always excited to see an envelope from you in my mailbox! They are so artfully created and of course the contents are always more than generous! Thanks so much for the vintage stamps. You are right, the park service and balloons are particularly wonderful!
Comment: Thank you so much for the comment on my profile! I really enjoyed the "Breathe in the Ocean" picture. I've never been to the ocean, but the picture looked very pretty! And of course I want to go now! Teehee, Thanks again! (:
Comment: OH this is beautiful alright! Youve got alot of small denominations I dont have many. I've got mostly 5 and 10cents. I just bought a sheet of vintage 3cents but need more. BTW, how did you get those perfect cancellations? And I love the stickers too! This was a great swap!
Response: Yay so glad you loved it!!! I did the cancellations while I was home at my parents house in wine country. Basically it’s a tiny post office so they let me hand cancel my own mail! So nice of them. I also was super glad to find all those small denominations! Hope you have a great day and can’t wait to receive yours!!
Comment: I love my nintendo Switch and do really recommend ! Peonies are my favourite flowers :) Hawaii should have been my home <3 and miss it so badly.
I visited Bend OR in June, how lovely it was ! reminded me a lot of Switzerland.
It was nice to swap with you <3
Comment: Reading your lists inspired me to do my own lists now! Thanks and I love St. Helena I had an old boyfriend there in high school. I would drive up from Belmont to spend time with him and his family.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your lists! I loved the stamps on your wishlist. I may have to add those to my own! And I think the goals you have are wonderful! I hope you are able toand wish you luck in achieving them! (:
Comment: Thank you for the awesome selection of stamps! I love them all! I LOVE the stationery that you used! My favorite stamps that you enclosed are the dogs and the postal worker stamp! I’ve been looking for a sheet of them but hadn’t had any luck. I’m thrilled to have the one you sent! I love these swaps! Thanks for hosting them! Thanks for making my day!
Comment: Thank you for the nice post card. I never joined many post card swaps but with the postage going up again there seems to be more PC ones available. So I'm joining them and having fun. Thanks again.
Comment: Super funny thing about the postcard & stamps you chose: I had the swordfish card (blank) for the longest time because I loved looking at it and I just sent it in a swap finally a couple days ago. I can't believe you sent it to me as well! Ahh! This has made me so happy, wow. And the stamps! I buy vintage postage too and sometimes if there are stamps I really love I'll slap them on a postcard and mail it to myself. I have definitely done that with the baseball & gemstone stamps so it's cool to see them again, sent to me by someone else! I've never seen the dog stamp but I love malamutes & border collies so it's fantastic. Anyways, thanks a bunch!!
Comment: I love the stickers and stamps you added to your card! Thanks! Years ago, a friend and I were in Belgium and didn't have time for a proper breakfast. I remember buying a wrapped Belgium waffle out of a vending machine! Haha!
Comment: The stamps are beautiful! I had not heard of Ellsworth Kelly. I'll have to see what other artwork he's done. I like the simplicity of the work and the bright, vivid colors. Thank you for introducing the stamps and this artist!
Comment: Thanks for the Elephant Seal PC, Micaela! I have actually seen those amazing (stinky) animals in person. My hubby is from San Luis Obispo and his dad last lived in Morro Bay and we drove up the highway to see the hundreds of seals grunting, snorting and lolling around on the beach! Happy Swapping! :-) Mary
Response: Yay! Glad you liked it Mary. And that is awesome — haha!
Comment: Thank you for the great postcard. My husband is at an Angel's game tonight. I've enjoyed two of the books you recommended and plan to read Becojing as soon as I come up on the wait list at the library.
Comment: Oooh, great postage! Some I had never seen; that bright Kansas sunflower 4 cent sure has the wow factor! Absolutely love your letter press card also! Pretty envelope with more delightful postage. Thank you so much!
Response: I’m so glad you liked it Shirley!! Have a great day 💕💌📮
Comment: Hello back neighbor...thanks for the stickers...I have relatives up there...San Jose...Palo Alto...Elk Grove...Atherton...Menlo Park...Cort Madera...and a few other nook and cranny places up there. I’m due for a visit to San Jose soon...😎
Comment: What a fantastic swap! The mail art on your envie is so beautiful and inspiring. Loved the NC and selection of stamps. I agree the scuba and coral reef stamps are gorgeous and I'm also in love with the 'Wolf Pack Farm Park' stamp! Hope you had a fun in Maui, did you get any good postcards? Thank you so very much!
Comment: What a great postcard! I hope you make it to all 3 of those places! I finally made it to Austin for the first time a couple years ago and I love it. I still need to get to Denver and Seattle :)
Comment: I am with you! I grew up in Fresno so I have had enough hot weather for a life time. I just like it slightly cool but warming up with some sunshine for the afternoon. So I get to feel the warmth on my skin just a few hours but not where I want to hide constantly in the shade or indoors. Walking weather! I love the card you sent. I like the feel of nice paper and the simple/cute decorating you did. Thank you so very much!
Comment: I'm waiting to open it! Happy Easter and Happy Swapping! Opened it! Loved it! I grew up riding in Kentucky! No big Easter plans, just church and spending the day with my parents!! Hope you have a lovely Easter!! Also, I love how this was decorated!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! I love all of it! Very cute dog stickers and lovely decorations on the envelope. I don't have any big plans for Easter. I'm just happy to be off an extra day from work! Happy Easter!
Comment: I loved the card and I sqeeeeeed over the little mermaid stickers and paper clip!! I love that you volunteer there! I was able to feed a homeless man with an UberEats order I got the other day where the "Eater" wasn't at the location and after 8 minutes we can leave with the food and l prayed for God to help me find a homeless person to feed. One delivery later I found a disabled homeless man doing crazy hat tricks! I wish I had video, it was so cool! Happy Easter!
Comment: Micaela - Thank you for such a wonderful selection of stamps!!!!! I love that you looked at my profile and included butterflies and a baseball! I'm looking forward to participating in this swap again!
Comment: Yep, I have a spot where I put the odd PCs too! Not touristy or weird touristy. One of the last ones I sent was two geese eating breakfast in bed of frogs. These are fun to get though hehe. Thank you!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE the postcard you sent me!! It’s decorated so cute and I adore the vintage stamps and the stickers and washi you used!!! It really stood out in my mailbox — I wish I could give more than one heart oh my! thanks so much!!

Comment: Oh, what a perfect lime card! I showed my daughter, who JUST moved out last week, and she said, "not my problem." hahaha! I'm glad things worked out for you in SF. I really wanna go there one day. I have found that if you take a long-term view of things, they generally work out. Thanks!
Response: Hahah that's so funny! Well i'm glad that you liked it :D Cheers!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely PC, the Super Chief stamp and your note.
I have never quite made it to California and Pacific Northwest. I want very much to visit your city and ride both the cable cars and the Market Street line.
Response: I really hope you can visit someday! It truly is fun to ride them! I feel lucky every day I can ride them to work! Cheers. Glad you liked the Super Chief stamp. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful swap as always! I love, love, love the One Canoe Two card you used. It's so adorable! I'm always excited to see your handwriting on a swap because I know it's going to be perfect!
Thanks for the thoughtful variety of stamps.
I love using the vintage ones for special people or holidays or to match my art. Previously I had a dealer I used but lost track of him. He sold at postage rate or lower. Hope to see you in a future swap.
Comment: Thank you for the fun assortment of postcards that you sent! My favorite is the moon and stars in the snow- what a pretty picture! Thanks for the fun stamps on the envelope also. Appreciate you taking the time to send me this envelope of goodies! <3
Comment: Thank you for my Quick Pick items. It was fun to open. My GrandGirl loves the stickers and already informed me we were to share! I especially love the vintage card in a sleeve. My favorite kind of card!
Comment: Hi Micaela! Thank you for your lovely started notecard! Was wildly exciting seeing it and your lovely hadnwriting addressing the envie with such a lonely free style hand! I enjoyed the note you wrote me as well as, the tea bag from the good earth company! I remember not that long ago the Sweet and Spcy was made by the Good Earth but in a different label. I remember that so well and i do enjoy the flavor as it is very strong compared to other teas. So that you for the tea bag and what a gift it is.1. Thank you and hope you are having a wonderful New Year 2019!
Comment: Thank you for the bravo-cado card. I have never been to San Francisco before. I lived in Paramount, California for awhile and loved it. We are thinking of going to Disneyland this summer. It's been a long time since we've been there.
