I am surprised at the number of people who vote early. I like to keep my options open for last minute revelations and also enjoy seeing people I know at the polls.
Comment: Thank you so much for putting together such a nice package! I absolutely love the black cat towel and washi tape! (Black cats are my favorite symbol of Halloween.) The stickers are so pretty and I will put them to good use too! Thank you again, this was a really special package and I appreciate all the thought you put into it! Happy Halloween!

Thank you so much, Mary

Thank you very much for the beautiful pink envelopes and the extra pretty butterfly stickers :D I love the patterns on the outside and on the inside! Special thanks for the awesome Eclipse stamps, I found out that the moon will show when you warm up the stamp! :D
Comment: Thanks so much for this incredibly generous swap! I love the HMPC, the botanical stickers, the bookmark, with the tree of life, the beautiful inner envelopes, the stamps, the amazon card and the best part, the note! This swap deserves 5 stars! Thanks again! I will be looking out for the original swap to show. If it does, I will PM you! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! I’m glad you enjoyed everything, and also to know that you finally received your swap. I truly appreciate your patience and understanding during this whole missing swap fiasco. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If the original swap ever does show up, just keep it. It was intended for you in the first place!
Comment: Dear Kindred Spirit, I am so happy to meet you on swap-bot. Beautiful two sided paper on the homemade envie. Wonderful letter & great swap-card. Thanks for the multiple Earl Grey tea brand samples. I would like to try the loose leaf. The notecards are all new images to me. I will be researching the British card company on the floral card. I am visiting a friend for her B-Day soon. She has rescue ducks & this card will be the gift tag on her present. Thanks so much for everything!
Comment: Thank you the note cards are lovely but I want to tell you how much I love the postage. I collect old stamps and I collect Wizard of Oz stuff and I only have one of those Dorothy stamps so thank you so very much!
Comment: Thank you for the really sweet Paddy's Day card, it's lovely! And thank you for the extras, I particularly love the shamrock washi, can't get that here!
I had a nice day relaxing and watching the parades on telly! Hope you had a nice Paddy's day!
Comment: I finished law school and yes, sometimes it feels like graduation is far away. Especially if school administration and teachers aren't giving their all. You'll get through it if you stay focused. Easy said, isn't? You'll make it:-D Thank you for the nice card and your sweet note.
Comment: These envelopes are so nice - I love the paper lining feature. And the little postage pack is so cute, I don't want to open it! I love that idea - I'll have to remember it for future envie swaps!
Comment: Having a hard time sending back this wolf and raven, it's so beautiful lol. I'll be saying a sad goodby as I put it in the mailbox tomorrow. Thank you for the postage, always happy to meet someone who appreciates and uses the old stamps too!
What an envie of butterfly goodness! Made my day. The note cards, postcards, magnets, bookmarks, stickers and book labels will definitely be put to use right away. One of the magnetic butterflies now lives on my refrigerator door. It will remind me to eat lite...or to pig out because food. Food is good...just like butterflies!
Comment: Thank you for sharing snapshots of your day with me, and all the extra goodies! I enjoyed your photos. Your lilies are beautiful and I love to dress up my dog too! I also love tea and flowers, and drink tea constantly. :) What is the name of the tea shop that you mentioned? I would love to visit it one day!
Comment: Lillian, thank you for the most wonderful swap! I love all the things you picked for me, especially the Paris bookmark and the dog notecard. I thought your little envelopes labeled for the small items was a great idea too. This was a fun swap; thank you! Happy crafting!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely card! I did have a great Valentine's Day "week". We went out 4 times. LOL! three for V Day with different friends and once for the 40 year anniversary of our first date. I didn't weigh for a week. Heehee. I hope yours was great as well!
Comment: I will be sending your adorable postcard back to you immediately, promise! And thanks so much for the extra TWO postcards and the vintage postage. Where did you get the postage? Been saving it? Thanks again!
Response: A gentleman I helped to care for recently passed away at the age of 97. While cleaning out his belongings we came across several envelopes of unused vintage stamps. No idea how long he'd been saving them. It was crazy. His family was kind enough to let me take the envelopes. Never having been much of a stamp collector I've been passing them along in swaps. So glad you received everything. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Beautiful scenery :) I say this to everyone but the modern art museum is my favorite (and it hasnâ€™t been overdone by school field trips to bore me every visit like science or natural history)
Comment: Thank you for the cute bear with heart balloons and extras. I received your card today 2/16. My husband and I went to the Texas Roadhouse for Valentine's and I had my salmon which is my favorite food. If you have a Roadhouse close to you you should definitely try it.
Comment: Thank you so much for the envelopes. I love the quality of the heavy paper. The vintage stamps are wonderful!! Do you actually use them or just collect them? They are so awesome.
Response: Thank you for rating and for the heart! Whether you choose to use the vintage stamps or collect them is entirely up to you. Personally I like to use them, but I know plenty of people who prefer to collect them. The ones I sent are unused, so should you choose to use them to mail a letter, go for it! Thanks again! Hope you're having a great week!
Comment: Wow a million thank yous, for all the extras, so awesome. I will be drinking a lot of tea this week, currently I am drinking yarrow and shepards purse for mennorhagia,been in a lot of pain the last week, sorry for the late rate, your swap just came an hour ago, we had a big snow storm with a foot of snow and didnt get mail yesterday. SO WE are 2 days behind in my mail, have a great weekend, anytime u want to swap just let me know
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful towel, napkins & plates! Now I can have a Valentine's Day party! I like the pink island air freshener too :) Mostly, I thank you for your thoughtfulness in including the postcards & the wonderful marriage advice for my daughter. I really appreciate that <3 These will become treasured keepsakes for them. Big Hugs & a Happy Valentine's Day to you!!!
Comment: Mailbox Greetings,
Thank you for the darling pug stamped swap! Heâ€™s just too dang cute. I liked the buffalo stamp you used too. You just never know what people will include in their swaps. Yours was really unique. Many thanx,â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and for the great John Muir quote. I've been feeling off lately, and I recently figured out it's because I haven't been to the mountains in many months.
Response: I can totally relate! I always start to feel off after a long period away from the mountains. There's something very healing about being in nature. I hope you get to go soon. Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the all the washi tape I love it all and also for the tea I've wanted to try to make the cover for the tea you made I love it I've watched a few videos on YouTube but haded tried it yet thanks again.
Comment: Thank you for the colorful, cheery assortment of samples you sent and the sweet SCAD-designed (that is one of my favorite campuses to have visited on a college tour over ten years ago -- I loved that the textiles department was in a 19th-century? school house and some of the dorms were in a refurbished Howard Johnson) notecard, Lillian! Hope that you enjoy that first day of snow :) I look forward to crisper days, but I am in no hurry to get to the new year -- I cannot believe this month is already almost finished. <3

Response: Glad to know it got to you safely! Sometimes I wonder about the postal service...Thank you for the rating and the heart! Take care!
Comment: Thank you for the Wisconsin card! I love my stopovers there too. I realized your card doesn't have a stamp. How did it get through? Take care!
Response: OMG...I wonder if I forgot to stamp it?! The post office must have decided to let it slide. Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention. I will be more careful in the future! Take care, and have a great day! Thanks for rating!
Comment: How fun to get a penny from Denver! I lived in Lakewood for a year and loved it! I do regret never getting a chance to go to the zoo there. If I ever visit again, I will make a plan to do so. Giraffes are my favorite animal -- I loved the penny!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I hope you will have the opportunity to visit one day! They recently upgraded their giraffe enclosure and now visitors have the chance to feed the giraffes! It sounds like something you may enjoy! Thank you for the heart! Take care!
Comment: Such cute washi on everything. Thank you. Capitol Reef is my favorite national park in Utah. It has one of the best night skies around. Light pollution is very minimal and you can see so many stars. Love it.
Response: Glad you liked the envelope! I keep telling my husband we need to go back to Capitol Reef. The weather was slightly less than cooperative when we were out there, so we didn't get to see many stars. But I've heard great things about the night skies out there. Thanks for the heart! Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Thank you for the bison postcard! I live in Oklahoma City, which is also very flat, but I have been through Kansas a few times for work. At one stop I texted my spouse in OKC and told her that she could probably see me waving if she looked the right direction, it's just that flat, LOL.
Response: LOL I love the way you put that. It's a great way to describe how incredibly flat it is! Thanks for the heart! Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you, Lillian, for the lovely penny! Sorry to be late rating you, but I have been having back problems. Your penny is new to my collection. I'll probably never make it to Colorado, but at least I'll have a penny that was there, lol. Thanks again and Happy Swapping.
Response: I'm glad to know you received it. So sorry to hear about your back. I wish you the best. Take care of yourself and thanks for the rating and the heart!
Response: I wish you would have contacted me first prior to rating. I have never flaked on a swap before and don't intend to start now. This was sent to you on 6/23 and I have no idea why it failed to show up. I have sent you a PM.
This swap was resent via certified mail on 07/14/16 tracking number is as follows: 7016 0340 0000 6522 5399. 7/18/2016: I'm glad to know the resend showed up. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much Lilian. I love the happy flower envie with matching stamps! You have spoiled me with all the gifts you have put in. I love it all, thank you! So sweet you selected washi in my favorite colours and put in the pretty extra envies. Milla was very excited about the AriÃ«l and tinkerbell stickers :) I laughed out loud about the tomatoes in brown sugar:)) Have a great weekend and thanks for joining my swap! Groetjes Barbara
Response: Thank you for hosting a great swap! I had a lot of fun putting it together. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I'm glad your daughter liked the stickers! Ariel is one of my favorite Disney princesses! I hope you will decide to host this swap again! Take care, and have a great week!

Response: You're welcome! I had fun putting it together and I'm so glad you liked everything. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the great Mesa Verde card, Lillian! That is one place on my USA to-visit list. I want to revisit the Southwest in general for an extended period -- my family went on roadtrips in the summer when I was little and visited some national parks, but I don't remember very well, and I am interested in hiking/running races, etc. :) Hope you have a great week!
Response: Thanks for the rating! The park service is doing a few renovations in Mesa Verde this season to help stabilize and strengthen some of the ruins. Hopefully it will be all ready for you when you visit. The hiking there is great! Have a great week!
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard. Typically I do drink at least two cups of coffee. But during the hot summer months, I have one. Now my husband drinks 3 to 4 cups a day, no matter what time of the year.
Response: Haha your husband sounds like mine! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Kauffman Center card (I have never been and hope to take in a performance there one day :) and sharing your favorite/best thing in life! Hope you're having a good week!
Response: I hope you get a chance to visit it one day! It's amazing! The architecture of the building was specially designed with the acoustics in mind and the listening experience is truly incredible. I highly recommend! Take care!
Comment: So very cute the penguins are I love how great the baby is! I hope the northern part of our state is treating you well right here in Central Denver I'm enjoying a rainstorm. My doggies wag their tails at yours ðŸ˜ƒ
Response: I always loved how fuzzy baby penguins look! Wish we would have a few more rainstorms here. Right now it's just plain hot! My doggies wag their tails back!
Comment: Hi Lillian! Thank you for the sweet chick pc and yes, baby chicks do make me think of spring! LOL! I do love spring, the sight of daffodils and the trees blooming make me so Happy! Hope you have a warm spring this year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you! I've always looked forward to Spring. It's so nice to see things blooming again after the winter. Have a warm and happy Spring! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Sorry for taking so long to rate you. I thought I had done so. I put a small Check mark on my cards and letters to let me know that I have rated and I didn't see it. My apologies. I love the postcard. I love going to Colorado. I also have been taking some great sunset pictures.
Response: No worries! I'm glad you liked the postcard. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Love it especially the papers.....may I ask where you got them from?
Response: I bought the papers from a craft store called Meininger here in Colorado. So far they are the only place I've been able to find them. I'm glad you like them. I've found them to work great for almost any kind of paper crafting. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I am so sorry I didn't rate you yet. I got caught up in the receiving part and forgot about the giving part. (Ratings). Shame on me. I loved everything. Especially the flower note cards. You did a great job. Thank you!
Response: So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the heart! Happy Valentine's Day!
Comment: Thank you so much Lillian for everything! These cat notecards are super adorable!! It came with $1.34 postage due :( but I don't think it was your fault, darn PO sometimes lol. I'll send you a PM.
Response: I'm so sorry for the inconvenience! The envelope was taken to the post office and weighed on the scale there so I thought it was accurate. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Let me know if you want me to reimburse you. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely lot of postcards! Great choices. Also, I am most excited for your book recommendation. Chinese historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and "Falling Leaves" seems like it will be a perfect match for me. I would recommend "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See. PS Awesome Envelope!
Response: Thanks for the heart! Glad you liked the postcards. I hope you enjoy "Falling Leaves" I will definitely look into your book recommendation!
Comment: Great PC and I would love Colorado in the winter - I don't ski, but would just love to view the mountains. We haven't had much snow either...there's good and bad in that. Happy New Year. Take care, Annette
Response: Glad you like it. Happy New Year to you as well. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! Being childfree is definitely an interesting experience. Being a parent just isn't for everyone. And honestly, I think a lot of people have children not because they want to, but because they feel so much societal pressure to do so.
Response: I agree wholeheartedly! I live in an area where people seem less than understanding of my decision so sometimes it's difficult. I'm glad someone out there understands! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
