Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome flying-type pokemon cards! I'm such a big fan of the games, it's always super nice when I get pokemon I don't have yet as ATCs. Gotta catch them all! ;-) Cheers!
Comment: Stellar cards ! It's so generous of you to send two my way. 💖 I love the way you draw and colour, what do you use if you don't mind my asking ? Is it a mix of coloured pencils and watercolours ?
Response: I feel like I end up making two most of the time. 😁 ATCs are just so much fun! And yes, I used a mix of watercolors and colored pencils.

Comment: An original work of art ... I am so happy it’s mine ... I have to say that light touch of lavender was inspired ... love the whimsy of the image.. thank you also for sending that nice collage card!
Response: You're making me blush! Seriously though, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Comment: Thanks for reading my profile and sending such a cute owl note card. The temps are dropping here, but we rarely see snow. Good luck with the DIY Christmas. I'll be recovering my surgery, so I'm anxious of how everything will get done! Thanks for the smiley face note card. Cheers!
Response: You’re very welcome! Good luck with getting everything done for Christmas! Don’t forget to take time to rest!
Comment: Thank you for such a wonderful letter; I like to keep the letters I receive kind of like a time capsule and I think yours is a really good picture of a queer viewpoint right now, it's a wonderful addition to the timeline I'll leave behind when it's my time to take my final bow. I'm not at all surprised by your love of superheroes, a strong person must stand with strong company! Thank you for thinking of Johnny too, he was thrilled!
Response: I’m so glad that you (and Johnny) enjoyed my letter! That’s a wonderful idea that my letter is part of your time capsule now. I’m honored!
Comment: Hi Abe,
Many thanx for the awesome Zine! I am outdone by your artwork. I will have to step up my game:-) even tho you’re not my send partner I am going to send you my Nov. Zine just for the heck of it. Thank you for being my partner. It’s always nice to see another partner’s artwork.
Response: Aw! I’m so glad you like it so much! Looking forward to seeing yours!
Comment: Is it weird that I cried and smiled whilst reading your email? I am seriously an emotional human and reading emails at 1 am doesn't improve the situation.
Thank you so much for sending what you did through, honestly, I can't even begin to tell you how much it warmed my heart and made me smile and just can I say I'm proud of you? Sorry if that's weird! But, seriously, just gah, I can't begin to express how your email brightened my week and it just had this awesome vibe!
Sorry, I'll stop with the weirdness! You deserve many hearts for this swap, I wish I could give you more than a 5/heart rating! Thank you x a million for sharing what you did!
Have a lovely week ^_^
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed the email so much! I don’t know whether to apologize or be honored that it made you cry. Lol
Comment: Thank you for this swap, I really like the cards you have sent me and all of the extras, I feel spoiled. Don't ever sell your cards short by saying they are not great, they are lovely, keep drawing and creating lovely things.
Response: Thanks so much! So glad you enjoyed everything! I will be my best to have more confidence in my art going forward.
Comment: I enjoyed your letter very much. 99 % of my furniture came from the thrift store or garage sales, with a spritz of Fabreze and lint roller, magically, they've become mine. I admire your interactive letter writing style making sure to include me and my interests and would have enjoyed you as a pen pal, but, my days have become so busy that I barely have time to swap or write. You map envelope is great, you read that I love little envelopes, especially ones holding sweet surprises and washi tape is a favorite also. The birds/owls stacked upon each other made me smile. Happy swapping, keep writing and making folks smile :)
Response: So glad you enjoyed the letter! No worries! I always feel that penpal swaps aren’t any sort of commitment to becoming penpals. Glad I could make you smile!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely pumpkin ATC... and a big welcome to this tiny world. :) The bonus ATC was awesome !! I ❤️ skeletons. Both use such a nice mix of colours. You've been extra generous with me, I'm thankful for everything.
Response: Thanks for the warm welcome! I’m so glad you enjoyed your extra ATC and goodies!
Comment: I love this Totoro note card you made! You did a great job. I think the idea of sitting out on chairs to hand out candy might work. I know local small business here do that. The kids and parents love it.
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed the card! Yeah, I think we’re going to do it!
Comment: My goodness, I feel so lucky! I don't know what the odds are, but I'm honored they were in my favor. Seeing a line from Emphasis (one of my favorites too) was a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much. <3
Response: Yay! I’m glad you were just as amazed by the odds as I was!
Comment: Thank you for the notecard and the little extras! Sounds like your labor day weekend went just swell :) I love free concerts myself, sometimes you never know what kind of music you are getting yourself into but they always seem like a good time!
Response: So glad you enjoyed it! Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend too!
Comment: First off, welcome to swapbot! I hope you are enjoying the site and having fun, it’s a great way to create and share with people all over the world, I’m so glad a site like this exists! Your package was so beautifully presented and I love how you used the clear poly bag as your envelope, very clever! The duck notecard is too cute! Thank you for such a thoughtfully done package 😊
Comment: Abe - thank you so much for the hand-made Hemingway card! I love it. Space cats for the win (lol). Tell your partner that they are awesome, and so are you! I haven't heard of Ross Gay but I will definitely look him up. Thanks for the rec! Keep up the awesome swaps!
Response: So glad you enjoyed it! Definitely look up Ross Gay on YouTube. He reads his poetry so well! Definitely a different experience than reading it on the page!
