Comment: Thank you, Laurence, for the nice cards you sent to fulfill this swap! I love the animal cards and especially the Eiffel Tower card! Loved hearing about Corsica--my hubby told me Napoleon was exiled to Corsica! It sounds beautiful. Wish I could visit!
Response: Hi Kristy ! I' m glad you like the postcards. Napoleon was not exiled to Corsica : he was born in Corsica and has been exiled to the Elba Island, very near from Corsica, but it's an italian island. Hope to swap with you again. Amitiés.
Comment: Dear Laurence,
many thanks for passing on the postcards!
I have never been to Corsica yet, but I'd love to visit someday! I have been to Sardegna a few times, so at least I saw Corsica on the horizon ;-)
Take care! Caddi
Response: Sardegna is a lovely place too. Next time, come to visit us !! Thank you for the heart :-)
Comment: Hello! So glad we got to be partners again! Loved my cardsand extra. We should do a candy swap again. I was sorry to hear about the car and computer, but like you said they can be replaced. have a great weekend!
Response: Hello Jackie. I was very happy too. We do a candy swap when you want. I'm ready !!
Comment: You are absolutely amazing! First of all, from all the swap experience I had nobody sent me a package not from regular post, but using other company. When I got your package I was so sure it was a package from my friend so I was so surprised when I saw a card written in French :D
You are the best, I loved everything!! Well almost all the numbers fell down so 3 of them I couldn't open in order, but its okay :) When I saw that you sent me a mug I was like in heaven...I always wanted that somebody send me a mug and you are the first one :) It is a bit bigger than Turkish coffee cups so great because I always feel that I want drink a bit more so your mug will fit it perfectly :) Thank you for everything, can't wait to try drinks and candy. You made me really happy! I would give you thousands of hearts if I could :) I will show your mail in my new video for sure and I could send you a link :)
Response: Hi ! I'm so glad you enjoy the swap. I was very worried because the package travelled a long time ! Thank you for the thousands of hearts :-) Hope to swap with you again. Amitiés de France
Thank you So much for the beautiful Postcard of the Medieval House in the East of France! It is truly lovely! I also LOVE the stamps! CAMEL!! I LOVE CAMELS!! <3 Perfect postcard and stamps for me! Thank you so much!!!
Response: Hi Gabi ! When I'll see a camel, I'll send you, ok ? Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much!! I love this cute kitty postcard! I just got a kitten the other day so now I am a 3 cat family and he has been in my Christmas tree everyday! He sleeps--then when he wakes up he goes to play in the tree! I would love to do another swap with you sometime and maybe even be pen pals!
Response: Thank you ! It would be a pleasure to swap with you again. Big hug to the cat !
Comment: Love the cards, Laurence - thank you so much! And your note and especially the lucky four leaf clover you sent for luck to myself and my family was very, very sweet and appreciated! We had corresponded about a private swap too, and if you are still interested in that I would be, so please let me know. P.S. Loved the envelope and stamps too!
Comment: Merci! Wonderful map card. A few years ago we took a cruise that stopped at Corsica, but I wasn't into collecting post cards at the time. I hate to think of all the places I've been, and not bought cards. The Triplets of Belleville was the Academy Award winner for foreign films the year it came out. I now own a copy. I also have the original Japanese version of "Shall we Dance" and the "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" series......I love movies. Joy
Comment: Hi Laurence! Thank you for the beautiful postcards! The bunny is so sweet! I love the 3D!! I collect the calendar ones! Perfect! I hope everything went well with your son's move! : ( Just think, you have a new place to visit! Let me know if you want to do a private swap - I have some neat things you might like! : ) Take care and thank you !!!!
Comment: Thank you SO MUCH, Laurence, for the beautiful cards and a lot of different cool and cute things for my little orphan friends! I will add it to the envelopes with my next letters to them and will tell them about you! :) So cool to know for them that somewhere very far away somebody thinks about them! :)
Comment: I have thought about this for a long time. I think you did not understand about the mail by date. Please note the send by date and try to send it before or on that day.If you can't let your partner know ahead of time. I liked the cards and how you sent them. Swap-Bot IS a wonderful place.
Response: Thanks for changing the rate. I agree : "Swap Bot is a wonderful place" !!!
Have a nice day :-)
My first "3", not because it was a bad swap, not because you didn't received the postcards... just for a few days late !!
Ok, I just want to say you that Swap-Bot remains a pleasant way to meet people for me, and I will never consider it as a competition or a race.
I hope you enjoyed the postcards :-)
Comment: got the bookmarks yesterday! thank you for so many nice ones! it was worth the wait!! and the bag!!
Response: Finally ! I'm happy you like what I sent. The bag was an extra for the long time !!!
Thank you very much for the heart. I wish you nice readings (hope it' s ok to say that, excuse my english...).
Have a nice summer :-)
Comment: Hi Laurence,
merci beaucoup, beaucoup.
That was a very special package for me. The bags are just great! I've never been to Corse, but I'd like to go there one time.
It's a pity there isn't the possibility to give more than one heart.
Response: Thank you very much, and I'm really happy you liked the bags.
You're welcome in Corsica :-)
Thanks for the heart !
Comment: Once again I get great PCs from you!!! I am always so happy when I see you are a 'receive from' partner in a swap : ) I do not have any of the mapcards you sent and all will go into my collection. I found it very interesting that Jura is very cold - for some reason I never think of France as having very cold weather! Thanks for the great PCs and happy swapping ~~
Response: Always a pleasure for me :)
Hope to swap with you again and thant you very much for the heart !
Comment: Hello Laurence, I received your cards in today, and they are very nice..Not the same ones that you sent before. Also, I especially love animal cards, and the cute Fox and Koala cards! Hope to have you again as a partner..

Comment: Yeah I got it! Sorry for forgetting to rate because this period around Christmas and Lunar New Year is very busy and all my office works crash which seems things are never ending! I like your pack a lot, they are wrapped nicely and the candy tastes good, magnet is awesome! Thanks for the shining gold notebook too! >3<~~

Thank you very much for the heart. Happy Holidays !
Comment: I love the Bonifacio pc. I've heard of Corsica, but your note on the card makes me anxious to google and read more about it. Thank you for sharing a little of yourself and your holiday. I read your profile and really enjoyed it. Wishing you a mailbox full of good cheer.

Comment: Thank you so much for the fantastic PCs!!! The Corsica mapcard goes right into my collection : ) The town of Bonifacio looks very interesting and wild sounds fun and this PC will go up on my PC wall in my studio because it looks so interesting and I can fantasize about going there and getting wild : ) The cork and corkscrew one is great and you must have a wonderful job. . . wine has been my drink of choice for 20 years so this PC will also go up on my PC wall in my studio ~ thanks again for the wonderful PCs!

I send you a private message with my adress.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome postcard! This was the 1st map I've gotten from another country, and it was especially neat to get one from Italy, where I lived for 3 years!
Response: I live in Corsica and it's a french island. Be careful if you say to Corsican People they are Italian, they would'nt appreciate !! ; ))
Happy to know I sent you your 1rst map from foreign countrie.
Have a good day !
Comment: Thanks so much! I loved the fact that you sent something for Tabitha, and she is happy too, she enjoys the snacks :) I already ate some of the Carambar's, and I'm happy that the bag is so big :D Say hello to your cats from me.
Comment: Thank you so much for the monkey family PC. They are so lucky to have their very own nature preserve. Hopefully they're thriving because of it. Thanks too for joining my swap. Have a great weekend! :)
Comment: Merci, Laurence! The postcards are wonderful! I am going to frame that turtle - it is great! LOVED them all. Yes! I would LOVE to get to Corsica some day. I have managed to get to every country surrounding France,yet not France itself! Thanks so much and I do hope we swap again!
Comment: Thank you first for the wonderful postcards ... the donkey stole my heart! But also for the fantastic letter! I never expected to receive such a wonderful letter with the postcards. Thank you a million times over for bringing a smile to an exhausting day!
Comment: Thank you for an amazing bag, I totally love it, so unique for a reusable bag and so happy you took the time to go through my profile and send an extra I can use.. a million hearts to you ! :)
Response: Happy to know you like the bag. I was a little afraid to do the bad choice, it was my first swap for reusable bag and I hadn't any idea about the kind of bag to send.
Thanks for the million hearts :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely PC. I'd love to go on vacation to Corsica some time...there is so many things to visit. Lang ago I had to do a representation about a Frensh speaking country/area and I did it abouth Corsica. It was for French class; Je m'excuse mais mon français est tres mauvais ;)
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcards and your nice note (with butterfly deco on it). When I saw your return address I wondered if it was in Corse. I don't believe I have ever received mail from there before. Best wishes,
Comment: I am awed. Really awed. Thank you so much Laurence! I put three items I collect and he gave me all of them. I loved the printed french zines you found online and am very touched that you took so much effort into this swap. I really appreciate everything you've sent me! many many hearts!-
Response: Happy to see that all is ok ; I was a little afraid about the zines :) Thanks to you, I discovered this form of art and I appreciate it. Tell me if you need others :))
Comment: Wow I can certainly tell you put a lot of thought and effort into this swap. Thank you it is wonderful! Right from the cool box to the pretty wrapping of each gift and the very interesting contents. I love that you told me about each one. I tried the Toulouse candies in the tin and I liked them. I really love the tin too! I also tried the Vichy mints very tasty with the hint of salt. I look forward to trying the other things too. I think I will have some cookies after my dinner! Merci beaucoup mon ami!!!!
PS the postcard and letter will go in my scrapbook to remind me what a kind and thoughtful swapper you are! Thanks again!
PS i wonder how the cheese would survive the mail!!! ha ha ha
Comment: Laurence! No need to apologize! I absolutely loved it! I put it on my fridge! LOL My husband and I got quite a laugh out of it...he checked the mail and said "someone sent you the funniest postcard I have ever seen" It was great...thanks for the laugh! x
Comment: Merci, merci! :) I really, really enjoyed reading what you know about Finland, and you are actually all right. We DO have bears, but they are luckily hard to spot. The reindeer are in the northern Finland, while in the south we have moose. Also, in winter the days are darker, you are right. And of course, Lordi :D I had to laugh as I read that part! :) The card is also lovely, thanks so much!
Comment: Hi Laurence,
Many thanks for the original hat ;-)
C'est un chapeau lourd pour ce petit bébé! Tu peux m' écrire en français parce que le français est mon 2e langue.
Bon week-end et salutations de Bruxelles!
Response: Rendez-vous peut-être dans un prochain swap. Amitiés :)
