Comment: Thanks for the beautiful card and the notecard and postcard too! I love all your Halloween stamps on the envie. I ordered some Gem Corn on the cob to use as decoration, but am afraid to open the box as all my boxes, in the mail, that day, were full of corn kernals! LOL Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Wow that got there fast!!! So happy you liked it! Good luck opening your mail... you might need a broom to sweep up lol!! Have fun crafting!!! XOXO
Comment: Oh Susan, thank you for all the little surprises and the letter inside of your envelope!!! Oh Japan sounds thrilling. I hope to have the chance to escape somewhere in November, too. Well I never plan so much time ahead - as there is always something else happening...or maybe I just don't like to plan my private life as much I have to at work...It is crazy - there we are already in 2020... :) And now simply enjoy the evening and the colorful October!
Response: You have to make time for yourself - maybe a last minute decision of where to go will make it exciting!!!! Enjoy whatever you do and thanks for the rating and for joining my swaps! XO
Comment: Hi Susan, thank you for the weird postcard collection - the pictures really made me laugh. Finally autumn is here - but to be honest it feels rather like summer. We had bright sunshine and 28°C at the weekend...meanwhile I was collecting colorful leaves on my walks with my dog...Crazy!
Response: Ha ha I love that they made you laugh!! We had summer weather up until about a week ago. Now it’s much cooler and like autumn. My dogs love to sniff the cool, fresh air - enjoy the leaves and the season and walks with your dog! : )
Comment: Hi Susan,
Thanks for the nice PC.
The steam train is fine. I don't dislike them. In fact, one of my dearest childhood memories is of my father taking me, in the middle of the night, the see the last scheduled steam train thunder through town.
Response: What a nice memory!! Thank you for the rating! : )
Comment: I love receiving mail from you and how cute all your envelopes look, even the simplest ones, you have a way of making them special, which I love. Thank you for the gorgeous card, I loved the PC and the stickers you included and the tiny card!! (I'll sure be using it in a journal or anything just for myself and not giving away hehe). Have a happy Halloween!!
Response: Very happy you liked the swap! I enjoyed putting it together for you! Hope you have a Happy Halloween!! xoxo
Comment: Hi girl! It's always such a pleasure to receive mail from you, loved your letter and thanks for the goodies you're sending along. Oh, and the envelope is just gorgeous!! You always inspire me to read more books hehe and loved everything you shared about favorites, I too love bagels and every year around Halloween I watch "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" I love it! Hope you have a nice fall even though you're not a fan of it, but I'm sure you'll make the most of it, xoxo.
Response: Awww, so happy you liked it! So far fall has been nice. This week it has been around 26-28C. That’s the kind of fall I like ha ha ha! You know I watch the Peanurs cartoons too! Finished my 53rd book today. Beat my goal, so I’m happy. Love love love your swaps - thanks again for hosting!!!! Appreciate the rating : ) Have a great one! XO

Comment: Thanks for sharing about your weekend with me, Susan! it sounds like you had fun! I love Hollo's and Sweeties; I try to get out to them when I can. The exhibit at the Art Museum sounds interesting; I may look into going if I can in October if its still there. Have fun in Japan! Its one of my absolute favorite places on earth and I may get to go back my myself in the spring of 2019- if I meet my sales goal for my job, its my reward, ha ha. Thanks for the postcard and the envie from Hollo's!
Response: Thank you for the nice rating! The exhibit closes on 9/30! I think the last tickets went on sale yesterday but check the website! Maybe there are a few time slots left. This is our 4th year in a row going to Japan. My hubby leaves next week. He’s taking a week extra to explore and I’ll join him the week after. I hope you meet your goal and can go back next year!!! Have a great day! : )
Comment: Oh my gosh. I was gagging when I opened your letter, what an awesome swap! I love each postcard, every inch of them, I wish I could give more than one heart! And also, the envelope is related to the cards, Sooo wonderful, thank you!

Comment: Fun swap - thanks for organizing! Love all your classy envelopes, including lobsters for heaven sakes!!! --and so sweet of you to make me one of each kind, plus labels! How perfect that you sent not just a cool map envie, but a French map! Merci beaucoup, mon amie. And oh - that big sticker of animals in party hats - what a delight!
Response: I had a lot of fun making them and I’m happy you noticed the French map! : ) Thanks so much for joining, I appreciate it! xo
Comment: thank you for the super cute fox postcard and the matching stamps! I love foxes, they are like a mix of cats and dogs. Sometimes i also see them in the inner city of Budapest
Response: You got it! I think I have another swap still looking for you too! Oh wow, you see foxes in the city? I guess everywhere we are taking over the animals’ land. So sad! Thanks a lot for joining!!! : )
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful postcards Susan. As always, I love each and every one that you choose for me, favourites each time. The Cairn terriers especially delighted me, as it reminds me of Maggie, the delightful Cairn I had a few years ago. Also love the covering notecard with the cardinal and other birds pictured. Thank you so much, very happy. :)
Response: You’re welcome! I’m always glad when I can send you the ones you like most!! I love that dog postcard too. So cute! Thanks so much for the rating!! xoxo
Comment: Dear Susan, thank you for joining my very first swap, and also thanks for the super gooorgeous Dior postcard! I had something like this in my mind when I create the swap, such a nice choice of card! <3

Comment: Oh Susan, I just love, love the photos that show me where you live I do appreciate all the extra ones too. Thank you very much for the very discriptive note too.
Great new postage used also and what a super selection of rubber stampers you have! :)
Response: Oh I’m so happy you got it fast!! Yay! Thank you so much for joining. I had fun doing it and I look forward to seeing the one my partner sends to me! Thanks for the nice rating, Carol!!!! xxxx
Comment: Wow, your envelope was so stuffed with fun goodies, Susan! I love the washi tape, stickers, tea, and the pretty little notecard. I appreciate the unused postage stamps, too. Plus, I got a bonus: not one of the eight stamps on the front of the envie was cancelled! Thank you for your generosity♥
Response: Oh I’m really glad you liked what I sent - and yes! Bonus on the unmarked stamps! Woo hoo!! Thanks so much for the kind rating. xo
Comment: Thanks for introducing me to your cool collection of mail themed rubber stamps! And the ice cream stamp... I want to eat (a real) one right now. :)
Edit: Yes I did notice the smell feature! :)
Response: Did you notice it’s scratch & sniff? (the stamp) Thank you for joining and for the rating : )
Comment: Hi Susan! Thank you for the paper and notecard! Cutest cat everrrr! I Love the stamps you used! Great job! **somehow I missed the heart during my rating but you certainly deserve one! (my bad) 🤗
Response: You’re welcome! Thanks for the rating and for joining : )
8/29: thanks for the heart! : )
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. =) I vowed never to read another Jodi Picoult book again, lol. I have only read "My Sisters Keeper" and it tore my heart apart. I was a mess after reading it. I checked out "Small Great Things". It seemed real interesting, but I get real worked up and devastated with some subject matter. I don't understand how people could hate one another with out ever knowing a person. Why is it so hard to love or care for people? Anywhoo.. Would it be a good read for me? How did you feel after finishing it? Currently I am reading The 49th Mystic by Tedd Dekker. It is my first read by this author.
Response: I thought it was a good book - it has a “tidy” ending which is a pet peeve of mine BUT in this case it was a good, positive thing!! I don’t think how and what she wrote is extremely hard to read through so it might be ok for you to read. It blows my mind too how people can hate so openly, and hate at all. Thanks for joining my swap and I appreciate the rating. : )
Comment: Dear Susan, it's always a pleasure to receive mail from you, and I absolutely adored spending the day with you in New Jersey and New York. The Starbucks Reward Card is SO cute!! I'm in love with it! And the kitty stickers of course are my thing hehe, loved the The New York Post cover "Burn Baby Burn" lol and yes you had sent me a PC from the Strand, which I loved. My grandad used to own a diner and it was the best in town, they were famous for their banana milkshake (leche con plátano) mmmmm, such a Chilean classic! Thanks for taking me on such a fun tour around the city and for all the cute ephemera, I absolutely adored it! Oh, and the envelope and all the rubber and postage stamps, ADORABLE! I'll def keep hosting these swaps, thanks for the kind words, I'm so glad you're enjoying them!
Response: I’m impressed with how quickly you got it - yay!!!!! It was really fun going through the day looking for things to send and I was excited to start writing! Oh a banana milk shake is something I could love, ha ha ha!! Mmmmmm! I love these types of swaps, thank you again for hosting them. You are so creative and fun! XO Thank you for the nice rating : )
Comment: Hey, Greta van Fleet was on the cover of this month's "Vintage Guitar" magazine! Oh, I agree, The Office is funny no matter how many times you've seen it. :D Cool PC, by the way - amazing glass work.
Response: Oh I’ll have to check it out - thanks for telling me!! Happy you liked the postcard! I needed to use bigger ones to fit it all in! Thanks for the rating! : )
Comment: Hi Susan! What fun to have you as my partner! I love following your adventures on FB! Thank you for the wonderful animal pcs and stickers - as you know, I have a little pc problem..LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Yes, I was so happy to see you as my partner!!! Ha ha I’m glad you like to see my travels! No big trips until the fall but stay tuned!! XOXO
Comment: So sorry for rating this late! Thank you for reminding me :D Your fur babies are so cute...how awesome they're having such a good life with you! Animals can really blossom when they're with loving people <3 Thank you for sharing :D
Response: That's ok - wanted to be sure it went through! I don't do many e-mail swaps so I thought maybe it'd be spam : / They are spoiled little things for sure - but why else would I have pets!? : D Thanks so much for the nice rating!
Comment: Thanks for terrific postcards, as always! Love those Paris cards and oh, what gorgeous roses! The elegant birds and sketch are unique and wonderful. Thanks for the really fun Disney envelopes and stickers, too. P.S. I'm saving a new LA Starbucks card for next time I send a swap your way.
Response: HI Shirley!! As always, a pleasure to swap with you and I am happy you liked it! Ohhhh, excited for the Starbucks card! Thank you!!! xxxx
Comment: Hi Susan, Thank you for the wonderful selection of postcards and thanks for choosing ones that I like so much. I can't get over the size of big ears on the Jack Rabbit! Best wishes from Jenny :)
Response: Yes! Their ears are HUGE! : ) I’m really happy you like the postcards I sent! Hope you are doing well xxx
Comment: Thank you for the pics of your pets! My son has been wanting a turtle for a while now but he also has 2 fire belly toads that I have to take care!!!
Response: Yes, I imagine that pet care falls to the parents often! How cool you have fire belly toads! I feel like we’ve had one of almost everything but not those. (Yet!?) Thanks a lot for the rating! : )
Comment: What a gorgeous envelope and what a cute girly bookmark, I love it! And I love that tea, so thank you!! Thanks for the gorgeous postcard and for sharing about your book challenge with me, I'll admit I felt a bit lazy compared to your reading + cardio routine haha, but it inspired me to get stuff done. It seems like you've read tons of interesting books, and thanks for your recommendations, I'll definitely check them out. The "Book of Joy" looks like something I'd love to get my hands on, I'm actually very interested in Buddhism and I don't know if you know "The Dalai Lama's Cat" series, but it's 3 books written by the Dalai Lama's kitten and they're not only super fun to read but every chapter has a different lesson and every book is focused on a specific teaching of Buddhism, I highly recommend those as they taught me a lot and I had tons of fun reading them. I also love space, so the "Endurance" book sounds like something I'd love to read too. I'm ok with fiction and non-fiction, I am currently reading Little Women, how come I never read this? But I bought the Puffin in Bloom Collection, illustrated by Anna Bond and so I read Heidi, A Little Princess, Anne of Green Gables and now Little Women, which is the last one in the collection. I love illustrated books and most of those I'm mentioning were not that popular when I was a kid, but what really got me into reading was Harry Potter. The first book came out when I was ten, and the last one when I was 20 and I was already in college, so in a way, it accompanied me along all those years. My mom, granny and I would make a fun plan for when buying the next book, like going for a walk, having an ice cream or hot chocolate (depending on the season) and then getting the book, so I have the best memories of that time and my friend HP lol. The next books on my list are Flow Magazine's book called "A Book That Takes its Time", lots of paper goodies in it, but also lots of interesting articles about mindfulness (which is one of the main reasons I like Buddhism, mindfulness, impermanence and non-attachment). I ordered some Agatha Raisin books on Book Depository because I loved the series and I'm soon getting my hands on some Poirot's books that I haven't read yet (I love mystery books). And I discovered Better World Books through a friend and I love how eco friendly they are, so I've been ordering used books like The Year of Cozy and other mystery books as well. I love cute books with nice illustrations hehe. Once again, thanks for such a cute and interesting swap, it's always a pleasure to swap with you!
Response: I’m happy you got it so fast!!! Yay! I’ll have to look into those Dalai Lama’s Cats books! I haven’t seen them yet! I’m on my third book since last week just reading at the gym. Why did I not think of this sooner!? Ha ha! Classics are a favorite of mine. My Dad always encouraged me to read them as a kid so I lucked out on a lot of required reading in school - I’d already read so many! I have never read any Harry Potter books if you can believe it!!! I love Agatha Christie books and Poirot too! I’ll have to put that on my list; it has been so long since I read any. I’m sooooo glad you hosted this swap! I loved it so much. Take care and keep reading!! XOXOXO
Comment: Hi Susan thank you so much for the Frida Kahlo PC and the quote: at the end of the day we can endure much more than we think you can. Love it ! I'm reading The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver and Frida is featured :) peace love light
Response: Oh great book!!!! Yes! I’m so happy you like that postcard!! Take care! xxxx

Response: Hi Shirley! I’m glad I chose well! : ) Thank you for the nice rating! XOXO
Comment: Thank you very much Susan for the cute L is for Lemur postcard. Must admit I got quite excited when I thought the hedgehog sticker was a postage stamp! How cool would that be in that design!!!
Response: Oh yes, that would be an amazing stamp!!! Glad you like the lemur!!! : )
Comment: It was a pleasure to receive your beautiful spring related mail art envelope with the pretty commemorative stamps and the enclosed goodies. Many thanks, also for your kind note which I enjoyed reading. A happy springtime to you, too!
Response: Very happy it got there quickly this time!! Thanks so much for your patience. I’m really glad you liked the swap and thanks for the rating!! xoxo
Comment: Great cards, Susan -- love 'em all! That NJ lighthouse montage' is one I did not have and really like. When you started these swaps did you think at some point you'd be over 150 of them? Makes me wonder how many of them I've joined... and who (other than you of course) has joined more of them than me.
Response: Hi Carol!! Happy you liked the postcards!! : ) I had no idea this would go so long! In fact, I had started them with a different numbering system so there have been more than 155. You’re for sure one of the people who join most - thank you for that!!!! XOXO
Comment: Thank you so much for your envelope filled with so heartwaming randomness. The clip of the Auto album goes straight onto the wall! Hope to see you soon in another swap ! For now enjoy the weekend.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely pc to color! Can't wait to start it! It seems... maybe... that spring is finally here in Ohio? It was in the 70's today, but I heard its supposed to snow again next week... :( So tired of winter... lol
Response: I hope Spring finds us (and stays!!) soon! It was 79 here two days last week and it snowed yesterday...!!! Hope you have fun coloring the peacock!! Thanks for the rating! : )
Comment: Dear Susan, Thank you so much for the wonderful postcards. They are all delightful, especially the Cairn Terrier, who looks exactly like Maggie, the Cairn Terrier I had and loved until just over a year ago. Thanks again so much. :)
Response: Dogs really are so wonderful. I'm sorry you lost Maggie but I'll bet you have good memories of her. xxx Thank you for the rating and always glad to see you in a swap! : )
Comment: Thanks so much for everything! The envelope of cats is simply awesome! Loved it! Hope springs comes to you soon! You can have some of the sun from Malaysia though! Hahaha...take care and thanks again!

Comment: Thank you so much Susan, for this lovely swap! I loved all the items you sent me so much! The labels are so pretty! And I'm looking forward to using the envelope you made for sending a letter to one of my penpals! Thanks again!
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed everything. I had fun putting it together for you. Thank you for the kind rating! xo
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful owl PC and the great stamps, Susan! I love them all!!! And I am looking towards spring too, but it is very cold now :-( Has your mailbox been filled better lately? Otherwise we can do a swap, if you like :-D XO- Ellen

Response: Beaches are just sooo relaxing!!! Nice hot sun, sounds of the ocean....ahhhhh!!! : D
Comment: OhMyGoodness!!! Thank you!!!!!! These cards are AMAZING!! The Disney Halloween card might be my favorite of all time! WOW! (Lucky you to go to Tokyo Disney AND at Halloween, how cool!) And the others- so many, thank you!!- are awesome, too. You truly made my day with these special cards and such a personal touch by matching them with my likes so perfectly. I wish I could give you lots and lots of hearts! (And I sincerely appreciate the care you took packaging them!) â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Yes, it was really quite fun to go near Halloween! The decorations around the parks were so nice! It was my husband's birthday and his first Disney visit anywhere! Next trip we will go again! Thank you for the rating. I'm always so happy when I have postcards I think my partner will like!! â˜ºï¸â˜ºï¸
Comment: FINALLY IT ARRIVED! Thank you so much for sharing your favorite place. I have never been in NY, but it is on list - no way I MUST EXPERIENCE! Oh as you can imagine I am a huge fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Now I am a proud owner of a wallet Subway Map! So I wont get lost! I think ice skating at the Rockfeller Center is cool - I went in DÃ¼sseldorf iceskating at the KÃ– (a famous shopping street in Germany)...what a fun! And now have a wonderful weekend. PS.: My favorite place was the arthouse cinema in GÃ¼tersloh, a little hidden gem!

Denver daytime temps have beat Miami this winter, if you can believe that --and I mean the Miami in FL, not Miami of OH! We are hoping for snow because it's very dry here. happy weekend! Carol

Comment: Thanks for very lovely and interesting cards, all new ones for me! Especially like the Snow White, as I just got a very similar card with the prince carrying Snow White-- it is made in Korea and has a unique shimmery glaze on it. Very fun to have the two versions! Pretty note card and this swap arrived very quickly -- great start for the New Year postal system??!!
Response: What a relief it got to you quickly! Yes, let's hope for great mail delivery this year! : ) I am happy you like what I sent - see you in a swap soon!! xo

Absolutely LOVE your postcard, it is amazing but of course, is in Italy ;-)! Thank you for a lovely token of friendship! â™¥

Response: Oh I'm so relieved!!!!! Thank you for thecrsting, Shirley!! xoxo
Comment: Thanks for choosing such great PCs that relate to my profile likes. Buddhist, cigar labels, elephants, black & white, vintage Florida -- you nailed them all! And your interesting postage stamps actually made it without being attacked by the vicious black marker the evil postal workers love to use! Thank you, Susan. Great to have you as my partner.
Response: Oh wow! No sharpie marker or ballpoint pen! I usually get it hand canceled but the line was so long and I had to get to work. I'm glad it escaped the wrath of a postal clerk! Also very happy you liked the postcards. I'm thrilled when I can pass on the ones my partner likes!! Thanks so much for joining my swap and for the rating! xoxo
Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful goodies!!! I â¤ï¸ everything. I'm jealous of your rooster stamp. ðŸ˜œ Small world- I'm from Akron, OH. I still have a lot of relatives there. I work in Asheville, such a fun place.
Response: I got that stamp at Paper Source a couple of years ago. They might still have it!? My inlaws are from Akron! I live in Ohio b/c of my hubby but I'm from NJ. Hope you have a great holiday!!! : )
Comment: Awesome outer envelope Susan, did you make it yourself + the green swirly pattern envie too? Your rubber stampers are great too! Such cute stickers and I really do like the images on the postcard and note card as well. Nice Christmas postage used, thank you very much for such a fun swap :)
Response: Hi Carol! I made the envelopes, yes!! I'm always happy when you're my partner - to or from. Very glad you like what I sent too. Hope you have a good week!! xoxo
Comment: Love the Rout 66 PC! This is on my bucket list of things to see. Have you ever seen any of it?
Response: It made it, yay!! : ) I have driven on Route 66 about 15 years ago. It was neat but there wasn't as much as I thought there would be. I think it'd be worth the trip though!! Thank you for the rating!!
Comment: Thanks for hosting this fun swap! I love the home made envie and all the extras. I have never seen treat bags like those before. Too cool! Unfortunately, the bear ate all 5 bags, including the wrappers, of the Halloween treats, I had bought when we were last in town. It's a plane ride to get more, so the kids may just have to get sleeves of oreo cookies instead. Darn Bears! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I love your Alaska wildlife stories!! I have to get there!!!! Sorry about your candy...that bear must've been happy though, ha ha! Thank you for joining my swap and I'm very happy you liked it!!! XO
Comment: What a beautiful PC - I too am fascinated by space and absolutely love a very dark night with all the stars shining brightly --- I always wonder what else is out there. Thanks for the great PC and have a wonderful weekend ~~
Response: I'm very happy you liked this one!!! Glad I took a chance on a more usual "N"! Have to remember to look for the Orionid meteor shower if one of my dogs wakes me up in the middle of the night tonight! Take care - enjoy the weekend! xo
Comment: It was so good to see you at my mailbox again -- it's so funny to not see you there for so long and then you show up a couple times :-) Thanks for the woman in paintings PC. I do like Mucha so much and I find self portraits very interesting - I always have to find a picture of them to see how close they are and this one is perfect - she captured herself very well. Thanks again and happy swapping ~~
Response: I know, I got a laugh when I saw your name twice! I'm always happy to see it and I missed sending to you! Oh you know I never thought to look up people and see if their self-portraits are accurate....now I'm going to! : ) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a super envelope to find in my ðŸ“® after a really tough day at work! It really made my day.. and I am so envious of all your fun stamps.They are all brilliant and if I had to pick a favourite, it would be a toss up between the Think Happy, Be Happy and that cute little pig with the crown and heart. The airmail eagle is pretty cool too!
Thank you too for the lovely note, the papers, notecard and the gorgeous envelope which I will be saving for a special occasion. Great swap, thank you so much! Winter is sneaking in via the back door here, ugh!
Response: Oh, I'm so happy you liked it!!! : ) I can tell you where I got the piggy stamp if you'd like! I'm not sure they still sell the exact one, but they have tons and they're all really cute! The airmail one I found in Tokyo earlier this year. I am not great at stamping but I just love it, lol!! Thanks for joining!!! And thank you for the nice rating! : )

Comment: Kitties for me! Hooray! Susan, thank you thank you for all the lovely kitty cards . . . you got one in New York? This week? You world traveler, you.

ALLLLLLL the way down the upstairs hallway and down two flights of stairs until it came off the roll! ha! Brings back great memories.
Response: Overnight, wow! Go USPS! : ) Of course we aren't far away but sometimes local mail arrives on the second day. I am happy you like the kitties!!!

Comment: Wow, Susan! I'm so envious of the assortment you were able to send to me! I love all the cards! And especially the Russian one! Are they all places you've been, or did you get them in various swaps? Either way, they're fascinating! Thank you so much!!! :-)

Comment: What a wonderful PC -- in many ways (and sadly I must say) it reminds me of the huge flag they had at the Pentagon after 9/11 which showed as this one does our unity and pride. I hope you had a fantastic time at the concert - who wouldn't love Joan Jett?!? Thanks for the great care and hope you had a safe and festive July 4th ~~
Response: Yes I remember that huge flag too!!! We lived the concert, she always sounds great! Thanks for joining, my friend!!!
Comment: Susan ~ Thanks for the PCs for this mini-scavenger hunt. I found the Chinese 3 interesting --- do I now know some Chinese :-) The French bulldog one is lovely although they are not one of my favorite dogs - knew a very feisty and nasty one years ago, Hope you had a safe and wonderful July 4th and that you enjoyed the concert - what fun!! My Pom just stayed right by my feet when the fireworks started -- we could hear them but not see them because it was so overcast here that night -- they actually substituted last years display on PBS because they couldn't film the ones in DC!! Thanks again for the PCs -- see you again soon I'm sure ~~

Response: Oh good, I'm really glad you liked that one!!! It is pretty neat!! Hope you're staying cool and enjoying June!! xoxo
Comment: Not knocking Ohio or the beauty within that state but this ocean PC is fabulous! I love the ocean and the power it possesses. My partner was a surfer in his youth so whenever I see waves like the one on this PC I think of surfers and of course my 'surferboy'. Thanks for the beautiful PC and hope you have a great week ~~

Comment: I hope you have a great visit with your mom and brother this weekend! We have a wedding reception to attend, but it'll be pretty low key other than that. :) Thanks for the cute kitty stickers, the foxy postcard, and the StudiOh! feather card (I LOVE Orange Circle Studios, I have their calendar and used their planner until I switched to bullet journaling, and I'm excited to have something else from them now). I need to check out their stationery offerings. I'm crazy about those little cat envelopes (I have 2 now!), and you send me the BEST postage stamps!

Tokyo is my favorite place I've ever been to pick up fun paper goodies. :) Thank you for sending me such a great variety--super-classy Totoro is my favorite, then the adorable kitty! I'm excited to use them all. Welcome home, and thanks for sharing some of your finds with me. â™¥
Response: Hi Phillaine!! I'm really happy that you liked my swap! Yes, Japan is soooo great for all things paper. My 2 suitcases and carry-on were paper-laden, lol!!

Have a great week and can't wait for the next round!!! xo

Response: I'm so glad you're feeling much better!!! I'm in Japan now and I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to the plum blossoms - but they are so pretty!!! I was thrilled to get you as my partner and maybe will again soon?! Have a great night!!
Comment: Thanks for the nice teas and beautiful card! I am so excited for the new USPS Global moon stamps - I pre-ordered them last week because my local post office always seems to be sold out of global forever stamps. Can't wait!
Response: Yes my stamps arrived last week! Finally, right!?!?! Thanks so much for the rating and I hope you enjoy the teas!! xo
Comment: Thank you, Susan; this was a delightful swap! The envelope was fantastically colorful and fun and gave me great ideas about you and your style, and I actually squealed with delight at the bicycle stickers (which I've wanted for a long time but haven't allowed myself to buy). Thank you for those and for the adorable letterpress card, the gorgeous botanical card with the daisies (now I need to check out that studio), cute little stickers, and the sudoku high fives puzzle-- I've never seen one before and I look forward to playing it! I hope you have a blast with your guests, concerts, and travel this next month. â™¥ Such a busy time of year! *hugs*
Response: Thanks so much!! I love that swap so thank you for hosting it!!! Enjoy the goodies and have a great week!!!! xo
Comment: Thanks for the notecard and tea. I had the mint one right away! It's a lovely assortment. As far as junk journals, I just add anything I want, no theme. You should definitely jump in and try - there's nothing to lose! Thanks again for the happy mail.
Response: Oh I am really happy you like the teas : ) I will definitely start my junk journal soon. I guess I'll think of it as a place to keep all the little clippings and pieces I can't be without!!!! Thank you!! xxx
Comment: Hi Susan! Love all the pcs! You are so sweet to contribute to my addiction! LOL! The elephant one is awesome! Out oldest graduated from a college that Rosie the Elephant was their mascot, so I have a soft spot for elephants! Thanks for making my day - you are such a sweet swapper! Also enjoy seeing your daily malings on FB! LOL! You must be the queen of mail in your area! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Hi Susan, fancy meeting you here! :) I received your fun cards, thanks so much! I especially like the Hindoo Magic card. At first glance, it looks to be a reproduction of a vintage poster like I've often seen before. But at second glance, yikes! I did not realize that folks published such things back in 1900 or had such shows! That might have been an interesting show to attend. So, this card definitely fits in with my off-beat, surreal, wild and weird collection!
Thank for the extra Valentine card too! When I was a kid in primary school, all of the kids would decorate shoe boxes for Valentine's Day with slits in the top. Leading up to the day, kids would slip cards into the boxes of other kids. It was always a fun thing for me. Receiving your card reminds me a little of that, so thank you!
Response: Thank you for such a nice rating!!!! I tried my best to pick some interesting ones for you! And I still love those little classroom Valentine's!! Those were the days, right?! Have a nice weekend and than you so much!!!! xxxx
Comment: Thanks for the great postcards. Love them all,. It is my first lighthouse multi view card. It will add nicelly to my lighthouse collection.Also, the large print card will be added to the collection. I can't believe how fast January went by, I have been busy, Happy swapping to you, Kubda
Response: Thanks, Linda!!! After so many swaps together I'm glad I have new postcards to send you!!!!! xxxx
Comment: Thanks for the lovely cards (my favorite is the childrens' book illustration) â™¥ and for sending them so well-protected. I look forward to sharing them with family and friends. :) Also, I love your return address label with the bunny and the cute stickers and tape you used on the envelope. They made me smile. :)
Response: It makes me happy knowing I brought a smile to your face!!! Thanks for hosting a fun swap!! xoxo
Comment: Ah, those are some fun new ones! Your swap-postcard pile must take up a whole room; don't know how you do it! Thanks so much!
Response: You're close.... I do have about a room full but not all in one place! My third bedroom closet is PACKED but I also have postcards elsewhere! And a dresser full. Happy I sent you some new ones. Thank you for the rating and for joining! xx
Comment: This swap deserves 5 stars! I love all the cards and extras that you sent! Thank you so much! Hope your New Year is shaping up to exactly what you want it to be! We have no snow, except high on the mountains! It is 40 degrees here! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Oh wow, that was fast!! Thank you for the nice rating. It's funny because I used the automated machine and it had a message along the lines of: delivery will depend on availability of local transpiration! So hey, the stars aligned this time, ha ha! Great that it's mild there. It is only about 12F here tonight! Yuck! Take care, Sherry!!! xoxo
Comment: Hey Sooz! Thanks for hosting; I love this swap. I also loved your envie full of awesome postcards and happy paper :) Amazing fox card (animals of the British Isles), and the B&W Flatiron is a keeper.

I'm only a autumnfan because of the changing colours. But since a couple of days I'm wearing a sweater, socks and my slippers again.... But in a couple of days it will be 20 degrees Celcius again ;-)

Comment: West! I love it. (When I passed through KC in June I went to the art museum and the Truman library and left with not a postcard in hand because they were not so well made. Perhaps it's just as well I didn't make it to the Hallmark centre.)

Response: NOW I'm on vacay in Florida, woo hoo!! Exhausted from the last two weeks lol! Seriously though! I'm glad both arrived. I had handed it over to the crazy post office clerk who wouldn't weigh my other letter... So I was worried for real! Yay!! Have a great day, friend! xoxoxo

Comment: I LOVED the book postcard! I hope that you get to your summer reading. I also have a pile of books I'd like to go through.

I will need to pick them up again.

Comment: Thank you so much! I probably don't have to tell you that you choose the perfect card for me, right? The Red Panda on the card is really cute and it has been some time since I last received something related to them (why can't I like animals that are less exotic and easier to find on cards? Then again, this makes it more special when I do find a card with one of those animals in the mail <3 ). Thanks again for the wonderful card and the nice message!
Response: I was hoping you'd like it!! : ) It was also a great sized postcard andI could write a lot! So glad you joined, and even better to get you as my partner!!! Thank you for the rating!!!
Comment: Nice to meet you again in this swap! Thank you for the lovely items you chose, I shall look forward to using them :D I'm reading Terry Pratchett's Raising Steam right now, so good so far :) The weather has turned bad again, really windy and chilly - come back sun! I'm looking forward to Easter just for the family time 4 days with Hubby and kids! Hope you have a great Easter too! Ps the envelope was very cute and I loved the cat stamps <3
Response: Rainy day here today. April showers bring May flowers I guess! : ) I sent you a postcard swap today! So funny that we keep getting matched up, but I'm glad for that!! Happy Easter!!! Thank you for the rating!!!
Comment: As always, my friend, you sent great PCs. . . I especially liked the one of the Boston Public Gardens. . . brought back many good memories for me from when I lived in Boston and used to go these quite a bit. I also really liked the underwater one. . .what a sight to see! We're having cold (25 degrees) weather today and it's expected over the next few days and then maybe (fingers crossed) we'll really be into spring! Thanks again for the great PCs and hugs to you ~~
Response: You're welcome - and thank you for your kind words! We are having lots of rain. Looks like it'll warm up some soon. I hope! Have a great holiday!!! xoxo
Comment: Lucky me! I received a lovely letter from you yesterday and an awesome envie full of sweet treasures from you today! Thank you so much! I love everything you sent and just seeing your name on an envelope in my mailbox always puts a smile on my face! For that, my friend, you deserve a hundred hearts! Hugs, Joy
Response: Awwwwww!! Thanks so much for joining! I was happy to get you as my partner!!! xo
Comment: Thank you for the swap and nice cards, loved the quote one especially! Lately I have had to reduce so much the amount of real mail swaps because I haven't been working for +6 months and postal fees keep increasing (1,10 euros for just sending a postcard at the moment!). Need to think 3 or 4 times ''do I really really really want to take part in this swap, is it better than the other one that also looks nice?''. Tough choices. ;P It's a bit sad to not get happy mail so often anymore, but then again it makes you appreciate more the few times you do. :) Have a lovely Spring time!
Response: I hope I made this swap worth your while! I know postage is so expensive. Our international rate is going up in a month plus packages too! Thank you for joining and if you have any ideas for a great swap you'd join, let me know!! Have a great night!! xoxo
Comment: Awesome!! Love them all! Was super excited about the pinup! New to them and have about 6 and did NOT have the one you sent!! Thanks for the nice note too! I know I am truly blessed living where I do! 5 minutes from Sanibel!
Response: I'm glad you like them!!!! Thanks so much for the rating and for joining my swap! I can't wait to get to FL this summer!!! Have a great week! : )
Comment: Hi Susan, your beautiful envie arrived today! Thanks so much for it and for the great surprises.. the notecard is great and the stickers are just right for a project I'm in the middle of :o) Thanks too for the note you wrote.. did you stamp and then colour it?
Response: That was fast!! No, the card was printed with that design. I wouldn't be able to even come close!! I'm very glad you joined, and like what I sent you!!! Thank you so much!! : )
Comment: Hi my friend ~~ What a wonderful selection of PCs you sent for this swap, but then you always do! I especially liked the quote about happiness and preparation -- so true, so true. I love the new Ohio flag, very different from most. Thanks again for the fantastic selection of PCs. Hugs to you and have a great weekend ~~
Response: Hi!!! I try to mix it up a little when we swap. I'm always afraid you'll get bored of me!!! Lol! It's like Spring here - I'm so happy!!! My neighbor's crocuses have started to pop up!!! Have a great week and thank you for the rating!!! xxx
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Maxfield Parrish PC with cute stamps on the reverse! This definitely made me smile when I saw it and read it! Hugs from Alaska! PS: We are finally getting winter with high winds and temps in the teens. No Snow though.
Response: Hoped you'd like it! What a sweet drawing - different from my usual idea of his works! It's rainy here but much more mild. Maybe Spring has decided to arrive??? Thanks for the rating!! xo
Comment: Hi Susan, Thanks for the fantastic postcards, especially as you chose from my preferences. Wow, what a great surprise to receive the quilt pcs, plus Renoir art, as well as the two lovely extras with an old-style sewing machine and the recipe one. Thanks again. :)
Response: I'm really glad to know you liked the postcards!!! I came across several for you and I was happy we were partners!!! Thanks for the rating and for joining my swap!! xoxo
Comment: Such a joy to find and envie from you in my mailbox today! Thank you for your note and the fun assortment of cards for this swap. We have had cold weather but little to no snow to speak of this winter until Thursday and then, wham! 12 inches! I'm so ready for robins, daffodils, and spring! â˜ƒâ„
Response: I feel the same about mail from you!!!! â¤ï¸ Yesterday hinted at Spring, today's rainy and muddy. Very March!! Soon we will see the pretty flowers! I have see a few a robins but I think there are some that stay all winter now. Always happy when you join my swaps! Thank you!
Comment: Love the cards, and your card, Susan -- I'm really glad you enclosed the sunny beach cards from Australia because looking at the snowy Ohio card made me get the chills! I can't wait for spring, how about you? thanks, your swapping pal Carol
Response: Yes I could use some beach time myself!!! All the snow melted yesterday and today is rainy. Muddy mess! I'm ready for the weather to change and I can't wait to see the flowers start blooming!! Thank you for joining and rating!!!! xo
Comment: So good to see you at my mailbox again -- I never get tired of it!! Loved the PCs you sent. I love the Texas Longhorn - they are so awesome in person - and the moon over San Francisco is just gorgeous. . .and I'm partial to the Cathedral Spires in the Black Hills - so many memories with my parents & grandparents driving the Needles Highway for a Sunday afternoon ride :-) Hope you had a great anniversary and you'll have to plan on fantastic ones during a leap year - something special. Snow is falling here, expecting 4-8 inches but temps will warm up on Saturday into the 40s and 50s. . . maybe the snow will be over!! Thanks again for the great PCs and stay warm ~~
Response: Yay,I picked ones you liked!!! We had a nice anniversary, thank you! We are already thinking ahead to next year. After all, it'll be our first, lol! Everything pretty much melted yesterday and today is rainy. March! Enjoy the week and thanks for the rating!!! xoxo
Comment: Thanks for all the great cards that fit perfectly into my collection. Today is a bright sunny day - we can only hope that it warms up a little so we can thaw out. Wedding plans are coming along nicely - starting to get a little busier now.
Response: You're welcome!! We are having crazy weather here. Snow, rain, sleet.. It's a mess!!! Glad things are coming along for the wedding!!! Thank you for the rating! : )
Comment: I got the PC today, thank you :) ItÂ´s a very pretty night view of Columbus. ItÂ´s so beautiful with the fireworks! Hugs, Camilla
Response: Oh great!! I'm happy you got it!! And the skyline is filled with fireworks every July 4th as we have a big Independence Day celebration! Thank you for the rating and let me know if you'd ever like to swap again. I have US postcards from all over the country. : )
Comment: Great cards as always, Susan! I hope you didn't get stuck in the mess that Nashville was this week--I book travel for Vanderbilt University there and know that schools were closed all week due to the ice storms, snow, and cold temps. If you did make the trip, did you get good pc's there? I've been wanting one of V.U., and have been trying to talk my hubby into a trip to TN, northern GA, and NC - we'll see. Did you see my news in my profile? I did a bit of an update (sorely needed!) in the personal section. Thanks again for the cards!
Response: No we got out of there before any bad weather. My husband had a business trip there Monday that was rescheduled because the Nashville Airport was closed! He's going next week and I already told him to look for Vanderbilt postcards! He's staying close by. I didn't see any but hopefully he will! And if so, you'll get them!!! : ) And big congratulations, Grandma!!!! How exciting!!!!!!!! Keep us posted!!!! xoxo
Comment: Susan! I can't even begin to explain how much I LOVE the cards you sent to me. Absolutely the best cards I've gotten in a long time, thank you so much! I hope the other part of my swap shows up for you haha
Response: Oh I'm really glad you love them!!!! We should swap again sometime! So far Part 1 didn't arrive but there's no mail today. I'll let you know!!!! : )
Comment: It's becoming a weekly tradition that you have to send a swap to me, haha. Thank you for all the things you sent and especially for the notecard and your kind words. They were so needed. Sending you a hug back. Manuela
Response: That would be just fine by me!! : ) Sent you a letter today!! Hope you're feeling good and thank you for the rating!!
Comment: Great PC and the stamps are great -- where did you get two with horses??? Hope you're not having too cold of temps. . . we're in the low 40s with a slight breeze so it feels colder but I'm not complaining -- so little snow so far so I'm happy :-)
Response: I have a small stash of old stamps! It has been relatively mild here and very little white stuff...!! Hoping it stays that way!! Thanks for joining and for the rating!!
Comment: Thanks for the great "one more payment" PC. It's one I haven't gotten yet. I don't know why I love these, but I do. I guess I always think of all the love and work that went into the initial building of each one of these. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I like those postcards too! I'll be on the lookout for new ones. Have a great weekend!!! xo
Comment: You covered my wishes well--loved them all. My mapcard collection is growing with the addition of Ohio. The Sleeping Beauty card will be added to my Disney collection too. And, Shennandoah National Park will be added to my National Parks collection. Excellent choices, thanks.
Response: Great having you as a partner!! I'm glad you liked the postcards! Thank you for the rating : )
Comment: Susan Another great swap from you. I love all the postcards you sent. Most of them are keepers, just one will go elsewhere. Thank you for the lighthouse note card. You deserve more then one heart from me for that. Hope you have a Merry Christmas. Shirley
Response: So happy you liked the postcards and note card!! Thank you for the kind words. Hope your Christmas was nice and enjoy the long weekend!! xo
Comment: It's funny how the little things can brighten your day! Getting stamps right off the envelopes like you sent does that for me. :-) That's not to minimize the labels and the postcard you also sent, which are great! I hope you have a fabulous vacation! I just returned home from mine and it was a blast. Thank you for everything and your stamped images were great. :-)
Response: This is my last morning...back to the cold and gray soon! : ( I'm glad you were able to get away too!!! Thanks for the rating and maybe we'll swap again!!! : )
Comment: Thank you for a wonderful swap! I love the stamps you used on the envelope and the extra ones inside. Thanks also for the postcard and note cards....and I think I will have the tea this morning:)
Response: Oh I'm glad you liked it!!! Hope we swap again soon!!! Thanks for the rating! : )
Comment: Hello Susan! "E" postcard of Eudora Welty was a surprise to find for this swap. There is a "hole" in my education as I didn't read any of her books but I may have seen her photographs. So I must go & search her writings, her photography to learn more about this amazing & talented woman. Happy Holidays!
Response: Oh well I'm glad I sent her then!! She was a pretty great lady!! Thanks for the rating. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!!! xo
Comment: Susan Thank you for the adorable Christmas card and the great postcards. Love the Hunting Islland one. The snowy Ohio one makes me shiver remembering all the snow in Massachusetts. Do you have any snow? I am great full we decided not to travel up North for Thanksgiving as they are expected to have an awful snowy day. Shirley
Response: We only had one snow a few weeks ago just a few inches. It has been very cold but today was 50F. I'll take it for the end of November!! Hope you had a great holiday!!! : )
Comment: Susan - Thanks for the great PCs. . .it's always so good to see you as my partner, either to send to or receive from. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you didn't get the heavy snow ~~

Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful Holiday postcard! The card is beautiful, but the woodstock-sticker and the stamps are perfect, too! Here are the christmas lights already up in the inner city! Did you visit NY and looked for the christmas windows? I hope you did..Have a great week :)
Response: Glad you received the postcard!! I can send you some of the stickers - check your mailbox soon!! I had to reschedule the trip as my dog had (minor) surgery. Hope to go next month!! Thank you for the rating! : )
Comment: LOVE the cards, as usual!! San Francisco and NYC (love the apple!); a West Virginia map (and only about my 5th WV card -- always great to receive more of those states that are rare to my collection, especially when they're maps!); the Ohio train, and not one but two adorable kitty cards! Perfect!!! I even love the poodle paper you wrote your note on! :-) And NYC -- I'm jealous! I'm not sure if you've left yet, but *any* New York card is always welcome! (Especially if you happen to come across any cards of the outer boroughs?) I'm going to Germany (and stopping in England, France, and Iceland!) next month, so if there's anything you might want from any of those countries, I'll be happy to look! :-) Thanks VERY much, and have a great time in New York!!!!!
Response: Always glad when I have postcards you like!!!!! Your trip sounds dreamlike!!! Have a blast!!!! I sent you a PM too! : )
Comment: Thanks for the great postcards. I didn't have any of these. It took me a while to check through my state maps to check on North Carolina. Great additions to my collections. Happy swapping, Linda
Response: Cool!!! I picked well then! : ) Thanks for the rating!!! xo
Comment: Thank you for the wonderfull Columbus card and matching rubberstamp! Amazing!! :-)
Add: I don't know where the name of the swap went, when I rated you it was still there but I didn't edit anything... I put the name back in.
Response: Thanks Kirsty!! Now you've seen the huge city (LOL!) I live by - I'll bet you're jealous! Ha ha ha ha!! Thanks for the rating. I love these swaps!! (Where did the swap name go?!)
Comment: Susan, thank you so much for all the wonderful postcards. They are great. Oh course, you know my favorite, the Tybee Island lighthouse postcard which I didn't have. It is great having a swap partner like you. Shirley
Response: Hi Shirley!! I am happy that the lighthouse was new to you!! I'm always glad to see you as my partner - thank you for joining my swaps!!! xxxx
Comment: Thank you for the great envelope - just love the selection of stamps you used! :) (The Ink Pad is such a fantastic little shop, and I can't wait to go there again. Be still my beating heart! lol)
Response: Oh you have been there!!! So yes, you know how awesome it is! I'm going to NYC in 2 weeks and I won't miss stopping there!! Tell me if I can get you anything!! Thank you for the rating!!!!! : )
Comment: I love the papers you chose for my
Envies & the way you used the cute little anchor paper to put them together...love them all. Thanks for the labels too. Such a sweet note too. Cool that you lived in NJ...my family is all from Ohio:)

Comment: Hi again Susan :) It's great to get in touch with the same partners frequently! Oh, Twin Peaks ... I'm also looking so much forward to the new Twin Peaks but at the other side, it will be like WOW or it could be blasphemy ;) But we'll see ... It seems indeed that we have much in common! Thank you so much for your lovely note (such a cute notecard), the stylish notecard, the airmail stickers and for returning some unstamped stamps, that always comes in handy ;) Wishing you already a nice weekend. Kind greetings, Aline
Response: I think Twin Peaks will be good because it's still David Lynch -- but we'll see is right!!! So happy to have you as my partner and I do hope we "meet again"!!! Very glad you like what I chose for you!!! xx
Comment: Thank you for the very nice envelopes!! I love how you wrap them together :-) I too found that making envelopes with patterned paper needs a closer look forcbetter results. I got polka dots today, and sent stripes off to you today lol
Response: Thanks Kirsty!! I'm looking forward to the stripes!!! : ) Have a good weekend!
Comment: Lots of Hearts for you (as usual). Thanks for EVERYTHING that you sent. I love the maxi card as I remember collecting the Australian bicentennial stamps when they were issued in 1988. Thanks again, friend.
Response: You are so welcome!! I felt lucky finding that maxicard for you then you were my partner!! Hope you have a wonderful day as I prepare to go to sleep soon! ; )
Comment: Thanks for the cards-got them so quick! I bet you won't be surprised that my favorite is the OH U.S. President's one. Would you believe my husband is distantly related to both OH Harrison Presidents and that his uncle was named after Warren G. Harding?!
Response: Oh wow, that's really cool!! I bought that one over the summer in Cincinnati and recently "found" them again, ha ha ha! Always good swapping with you, Carol!!! : )
Comment: Hi Susan!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you sooow much for the cute envies!!! I like them so much, I don't think I am going to use them. Or maybe the one with the bird.... But only for a very good friend....

Comment: Woo hoo! I just got your card, Susan. I love it! To answer your question, I've lived in GA most all of my life but I was born & raised in KY. I still have extended family there that we visit every year. Thank you for being such an awesome partner!
Response: Oh good!!!!! You got it!!!! : ) Thanks for your patience, too. It has been a good 10 years since I lived in Atlanta. Feels like a lifetime ago. So happy you joined the swap - hope to see you in another one soon!!! xo
Comment: Ok, Hershey, Pa. That's a keeper. I used to travel to Hershey to watch the old Cleveland Baron hockey team play Hershey. I remember the Hershey Hotel. I was 16 and traveled with my parents. Does that date me?
Response: Oh good!!!! I am glad it brought back memories!! I remember the Barons as an NHL team when I was a kid. Yep, way back!! : ) Thanks for joining the swap - have a good week!!
Comment: Susan, thank you for the postcard, note card and your letter. I have 3 out of many friends that I cherish. Kathy, who lives in Arizona, since we were in diapers. June, Florida, we were neighbors and single parents, since I moved from Illinois in l978. Marion, Texas, neighbor in Florence, MA since 1978. The fall weather is surely here. Was 52 when I got up at 6 this morning. Brrrrrr!!!!! Shirley

Comment: Hello! Thank you for the awesome letter...OMG, I laughed. Was I in the trunk of the taxi in your dream? Ha ha! Always nice to get a poodly letter. Yes, I used to watch TPIR with my Grandfather when I got home from school. Good times. :D Thanks for joining this swap! (and for all of the papery goodness, too).

Response: Hiya!!! Meet you at Lake Placid one day?! Nice swap, thanks for hosting it. Good reminder that the little things mean an awful lot too. â¤ï¸
Comment: Nice job centring the squirrel on the larger envie, and I love umbrellas (as art motifs, not to use)! Thx Susan! (";) P.S. Got a kick out of the pumpkins AND snowman on your outer envie. lol)
Response: That book was in the larger side so I lucked out with a lot of good animal pictures! Oh, great you like umbrellas!! Oh yeah.... Ha ha ha! I don't have as many labels with my married name lol!!! Thanks for joining my swap!!!! : )
Comment: Thanks for the great postcards. Love the Pennsylvania cards - they will add to my collection from my home state. Also, the NewYork Broadway. When I was in New York, we went to a lot of Broadway shows. Lots of fun and good memories. Happy swapping, Linda
Response: I hope the PA ones aren't doubles since I didn't know I'd be sending to you! Thanks for the rating!! : )
Comment: You get a heart and a star from me (as usual) Susan -- great cards as always.
Hard to pick favorites among them! Love your Ohio stamp--reminds me of a joke I learned as a kid--What state is round at the ends, and high in the middle? OHIO!
Response: Awwwww, thanks Carol! I appreciate it a lot! Ha ha, I have a postcard of that joke! If I can dig it up I'll send it to you!!! : )
Comment: Thank you very much for the nice postcards! I especially liked the Manatee one. Lately I've really been into animal cards and am especially happy to receive one :) Though the thing I actually liked the most was the lovely greeting card you used as a note - such a beautiful design!
Response: Wow, that was fast!! I'm so glad you like my card and postcards!! I've found more I think you'll like, and I'll send them to you soon! Thank you for the rating and for joining my swap!! : )
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful envelope of items. Next week I am going to an open-range zoo and I will see cheetah, giraffe and lion like on one of the postcards. It's always great to swap with you.
Response: Oh that sounds great!! Let me know how it is! Happy you liked what I sent!! XO
Comment: Thank you for the very nicely made envelopes, I LOVE them all!! Thank you also for the nice blank address labels :-) beautiful stamps you used, i like the one with the two airplanes especially!
Response: Hi Kirsty!!! Very happy they arrived safely and that you like them!! Was it the air mail stamp that I used? (I forget!). Thank you for the rating!!!
Comment: Thank you so much! I'm in love with the Otter card. I adore otters and always love to get a new card for my collection :) The map card also made me very happy - only 3 more and I'll have them all!!! The recipe card will get a nice spot on my kitchen wall (and since it sounds really good I will try it out this weekend). Thanks again!
Response: I was glad I still had that map card for you!!! I'll keep looking for the others you need. Very glad you liked them all!! Thank you for the rating!! : )
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful cards. I'll just thank you for 5 of them here and the remaining three in my other rating.
I can't decide which card I liked the most! The Covered Bridges one is beautiful and it made me especially happy since it has been quite some time since I had received a new one for my collection. Ther Florida at night one is also great because my collection of those is still very small (I only had 3 of such cards before I received yours). The view cards as well as the "Did you know..." card were also great :)
Response: I was very happy that I had postcards to match your likes!! The covered bridges and "at night" ones are from my travels this summer. I'll be on the lookout for more. Thank you for joining my swaps and for such nice comments!!! : )
Comment: Thank you for another wonderful set of postcards; I love them all, especially the map (always happy to receive new maps!) and the pretty vintage label!! And the Snoopy/Woodstock stickers are adorable and much appreciated!! Thanks for being a fantastic swap partner!! :-)
Response: You're too kind! Thank you for being one of the people that makes swapping fun!! I am really glad you liked the postcards!!! Thanks for the rating!!! : )
Comment: This postcard would be loved by some children (especially boys). They love the type of language in the description. I think that the card is definitely ugly/gross or funny. Thanks for sending it to me.
Response: Ha ha yes, maybe by boys!! I think it's awful! Sorry to have had to send it to you!! Thank you for the rating!!!
Comment: As always, great PCs. . . the el train reminds me of ones I used to ride when I lived in Boston :-) The sea otters are so cute - we had those in the streams in SD when I was growing up. . . and so funny that Roger Moore is your fave James Bond 'cause to me there is no other James Bond than the original - I've never seen a Bond movie that has any other Bond than Sean! Thanks for the great PCs. . . and have a great weekend ~~
Response: You should treat yourself to all the Bonds!! Each great in their own way!! : ) I was glad to send to you - felt like it had been some time!! Thank you for the rating!!! : )
Comment: Thanks for the cards...My Labor Day all depends on Joy and if she is not too tired to get together, otherwise I will go out myself and have a burger!! Adrian is already 3 months, and his personality is really coming through./...but, not like Adam's personality!!!!! Maybe that will come at a later time!! Thanks for asking, Hugs,
Response: Hi Anita! Thanks for the rating! Hopefully you'll get out over the weekend ---> we just had my Mom over for dinner!! No big plans the rest of the weekend. Enjoy your time with Adrian -- what a joy!
Comment: Another great selection of postcards -- thank you so much!! I love all the different city views, and the Key Lime Pie recipe (I've seen that postcard at different online sites and "coveted" it, lol, so great to finally have it!). Thanks, too, for the cute kitty card... I love the kitty's open mouth and raised paw, and you're right, he/she does look to have some Siamese! :-)
Response: Oh good, I'm happy the recipe card was new for you!! I love the card - cute cat!! : ) Thank you for the rating and always glad you joined my swap!
Comment: Such a treat to open a swap from New Albany Ohio! I love the cat card the best! And where do you get the swap-bot postcards????
Response: Thanks, Michele! I love sending to you! I had some swap-bot postcards from a couple of years ago but got more from @racheljohnson when I became a SB Ambassador. If you'd like a few more, PM me and I can send some to you! Thanks for the rating!!! : )
Comment: LOVE love love love LOVE this swap! The envie is gorgeous - all the amazing little forest buddies. You have gorgeous stamps :) Thank you for the effort to include profile specific treats - I love them all :) I've been wanting an Ernie postcard and voila! Thank you for being a fantastic swap partner.
Response: Wow, that was pretty fast! I seem to have good luck with mail to/from South Africa. I am happy you liked the envelope and didn't think there were way too many stamps ,ha ha! I'd love to do a private swap one day if you want - just let me know! Thank you for the kind rating - I appreciate it!! : )!
