Comment: Me and my husband loved Comic Con! People kept backing up into me while I was walking and I was like "Hey watch it!" and then Stan Lee walked past me (about 3 ft away) and then I got trampled by his following minions! LOL! All I could think was "Hey, wasn't that.....!" He is super short. Didn't know that! Thanks for the postcard and have fun!
Comment: Thank you for sharing a Leopard postcard for this swap, Michelle! I love leopards! (And tigers, jaguars, lions. . .) :-) The quote you shared on the print side is also a great one! Do you know which book (if any?) it is from? Thank you so much for sharing! :-)
Response: Was it a Stephen King quote? I write out so many quotes, I can't keep track :) So, happy that you liked the postcard!
Comment: This kangaroo card is cute. At first I assumed it was going to be a "k" card. The cotton candy eating giraffe is amazing!
Response: I filled it out and addressed it before I saw that you were my partner for the K swap :( But, your profile is filled out so nicely that it's pretty easy to find a card to send you that I think you'll enjoy :)
Comment: Hi Michelle! Love the postcards you sent! It looks like you read my profile :) Red Phone Booths are great. Thanks so much for all 4 of them. I've always wanted to go to Vermont during the fall but haven't made it yet. Take care & Happy Swapping, Judy
Comment: Hugs for you Michelle! I love the postcard and washi! The stamps too! It was very awesome that you took the time to read my profile. Your quote is now in my book of quotes because it as awesome as this swap! Thanks so much!
Response: you're so welcome! I'm glad you loved the postcard!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely black cat card, at home at one point we had 6 cats, we had a decent size house and they had a outside cat house with heating, they were indoor and outdoor cats :D Lots of lovely stamps on the postcard too, thank you :D
Comment: Thank you for the adorable monkeys and the great quote. Today is my son's half birthday, so I will give him this postcard when he gets his gifts. Yes, I spoil my kids and celebrate them two times a year!! I just love them so much!
Comment: I love the PC, the bird punch is perfect. Fun stamps! The deer washi is adorable....I'm going to be doing a search to find that brand! Inspirational Quote....all of my favorite things! Thank you!
Comment: LOVED the card!
Update: I got a second card from you? But I LOVE this one as well! :D You have great taste!
Response: I've had your name for a few postcard swaps lately. I sent you a little girl in bed with a cat for this swap and a fox with an anteater for the 'postcrossing obessed! 4' swap. I love when I get your name cause I have a lot of postcards that fit your profile :)
Comment: It was a special pleasure to receive the PC from Burlington, Vt because I used to attend UVM and lived in Essex Junction which is right next to Burlington. I miss Burlington soooo very much. thanks for sending me that PC. It brought back fond memories
Response: Oh, great! I was hoping that you would enjoy it! I live in Westford--a town that borders Essex. I love it here in Vermont!
Comment: What a beautiful card. Thank you so much.
I would love to check out your cake page if you have the time to send me a link :)
How funny is it that we were partnered up and work in the same field :)
Happy Caking for 2015 :)
Response: I thought the same thing! My website is www.mylittlecupcakevt.com
Comment: Received your lovely envie and the bone bead! Digging those race car stamps too. One of the ladies on the envelope had sadly been decapitated in the mail handling, which somewhat added a surprise mystery element to the image. Thanks for the swap & happy midwinter holidays!
Comment: Thank you! I really love the stars/ luck postcard! And the vintage stamps you used was so very kind of you! Many hearts to you! Thank you! Also thank you for saying hello to Paul the mailman! :-)
Response: You're so welcome! I'm so happy that you like it!
Comment: I love this PC! She's so cute and the colors are perfect. Thank you! Good luck going vegan. I will tell you that it is super hard at first, but my health really benefited from it so it was easy to stick with it. My skin especially benefited!
Response: You're so welcome! I'm so happy that you like it! I did go vegan once for 6 weeks, and I felt so much better, but evenually went back to being just vegetarian. I'm going to try and make it stick this time by being more prepared for how much work it is, and keeping in mind how much I will benefit and the animals! Thank you for the well wishes!
Comment: Ahh! Thank you Michelle for following @Doctor_Coconut on instagram!! :) he's the most plushy-fluffy kitty I have ever known!! Thank you for the Vermont MapCard!

Response: I know, the fur is everywhere! I have 5 cats, yes, you heard me right, 5 cats, but I wouldn't trade them for anything!
Comment: LOVE the Hello Kitty PC! I resisted the temptation to visit your profile for clues! I am going to guess the Truth is......You have a crush on Marilyn Manson! How'd I do?
Response: You're right! I never thought you would get it, but when I admited to my co-workers that I had a crush on him, almost everyone said they understood...so, I guess it's not that uncommon. Fun Swap!
Comment: What a terrific envelope! (and I love the bird stickers too!) But it really is the decorating of the envelope that is the star of this package. A true joy to receive and a great addition to my mail art collection. Thanks so much for sending!

Thank you so much for my altered charm! I love it! The little hummel picture is so sentimental to me as well. My mom is from Germany, so we had lots of hummels,plus the picture reminds me of my twin granddaughters. Your work is beautiful! Will you share your technique? The presentation was lovely as well, in the decorated matchbook box with the additional charm. I wish I could give you more than one heart! Thank you! thank you! Susan (qmock)
Response: I'm just so happy that you like it. I made it out of polymer clay and put a coat of diamond glaze over the picture after I baked and painted the charm. Thanks for the lovely comments.
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful package - all those pretty hearts really brightened up my day! I can't wait to try out the bottlecap brooch kit, and use all the crafty bits - I love the socks too!
Comment: This was such a wonderful package! I love the box and the goodies inside. It was so cleverly done that it looks like jewelry. The card was beautiful. Like you, I love birds and that was a fascinating picture. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so glad that you like it! I received you as a partner for the Valentine Matchbox swap, too, so you should be getting it any day now.
SOOOO excited to receive the pretty package. I just love the stuffie...too cute. can't believe this was your first one!!! Love the fabric, button eyes and little heart charm!!! A++++ Thank you so much.
Response: Like I said in the note, it was hard to mail her off, but knowing that you like her too makes me very happy :)
Comment: 5++! OMG thanks a ton and a bunch! I had a rough weekend involving a family crisis and today your package litterally made me cry with joy after the emotional hell of this past weekend. The little crytal will be perfect hanging on my front door catching the afternoon sun, the bottlecap pin kit, the bookmark, and all the rest I can't quite remember at the moment. You done good girl!
*Edited to add: I forgot to mention the lip tint lip balm, and the tea towel that was "so me" both in the colors and in the decorations! The ribbon bookmark is so way cool, that I am using it in my journal for now. Again, thanks a ton and a bunch!*
Oh the dark pink paper and the "lalalove" label got me some looks at the post office which also helped to make my day!
Response: It makes me so happy that you enjoyed the package! Thank you for the lovely comments :)
Comment: I love these embellishments, thank you so much! They're so cool and well-made, much funner than store bought. I think the buttons are my favourites, or maybe the mosquito tags. I want to give you a heart but it seems to not be working right now, maybe if I come back later?
OK, the hearts are working again so here's one for you.
Response: I'm so happy that you liked the embellishments, I was hoping that you would enjoy them.
Comment: Cute packaging of the fabrics wrapped in the RED lace and the "dress" note...so darn cute! Thanks for the couple of extra squares of fabric. My fave is the black with the mittens...so yummy! Who makes it?
Comment: Michelle~ Your matchbox is just beautiful and all of the extras are truly fabulous...especially the crystal ornament that goes with my Christmas tree decor PERFECTLY!!! Thank you so, so much!!!
Comment: Thank you SO much! I can definitely tell that you took a look at my profile :) My favorite things are the map pictures and stamps, but everything is great... i.e. I didn't even have a pair of patterned-edge scissors til now and the fabrics are neat! Happy holidays :D
Comment: Ok so first of all, I just love your user name. That is my nickname..too funny. Secondly,thank you so much for the cards. I already used one of them. I love the extra special care you took with your package as well. Have a great holiday season!!
Comment: Very pretty card...anything glittery is right up my alley and I loved the tag you included. Just one question...do I really have to use the tag? It's too prett and I don't want to write on it!
