Comment: Sorry for the late rating. Thank you so much for an amazing swap of so many wonderful vintage things! The parchment paper kitty pattern is precious... I'm a beginner at embroidery, but I think I will use it to create a piece or maybe a series of hoops. I appreciate all the botanical things (e.g. book pages) and love the groovy colorful postalette and cute raccoon postcard. Thanks again and be well!
Comment: Thank you for your letter, your menagerie is amazing and you are wonderful for working at the clinic and for your attitudes. I know of Diane Ackerman but never saw that poem before, thanks for including it as well a the quilt PC.
Comment: Thank you so much, Michelle! This is the happiest happy mail I've received yet. 😍
You were more than generous, and I love everything you sent. The envelope you sent it in is too beautiful for words. Many hearts!!💕💕💕
Comment: What a delightful surprise to receive such love in an envelope 💜 I make my envelopes too and I know how much love you put into illustrating and impecably packing all the goodies for me. You were very proactive, checking what was the best way to mail it to me, and it was packed with love and care. Everytime I get an envelope like yours in the mail I remember why I'm here for. It's a shame I only have one heart to give you :)
Comment: You scored with both quarters - I don't have my parks listed on my profile, but I only have one of the Mariana Islands and it's a bit different. The nickel is also new to me! Your packaging DID make this a very special swap - thanks for the postcards, too! Love the wax sealing :)
Comment: I absolutely love how you decorated the envelope.The washi is cool.The various stamps are precious.Thank you for the lovely note.The pocket letter and tuck ins are fabulous. Thank you also for the Star Bucks gift card!♥️
Comment: Crazy, as soon as you start worrying about a postcard it suddenly arrives. This happened to yours. It came this morning. Thank you so much for the great card. Quite funny that it has taken so long to arrive...
Response: oh good!!! I was thinking about if I messed the address up with my attempts at creative lettering and it was going to be an orphaned postcard. But I'm glad it found it's way to you. can't believe the loooong journey! lol.
Comment: Thank you for your letter and extras! It was really fun reading your story, I'm glad it turned out to be a happy memory in the end. I've had similar experiences in a car just for different reasons, haha.
Comment: Mahalo for your wonderful note card and gift. We have much in common; let me know if you want to be pen pals and I will write back to you. The gift you included was so beautifully wrapped - it really made me feel spoiled. I will try the flower seeds and let you know what they do. The postage stamps are most welcome.
Response: I'm glad you felt special. That was my aim! I'd love to be pen pals! I think we would have lots to talk about, whenever you find the time. Till then!
Comment: Hi Michelle! Thanks for the share about your weekend and the goodies - enjoyed reading about your little ones - my "babies" are 26 and 29! LOL! But as I tell them, they will always be my babies! I take my hat off to you that you have little ones and still find time to swap - my oldest was in college before I found sb! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: You are welcome. It's a lot of late nights doing swap bot but I just can't help it, lol. I enjoy it too much. I always tell myself the dishes can wait. ha, ha. I can't imagine what it's like to see your babies off to college. It always seems impossible that they'll ever be adults. Hugs back to you. :)
Comment: Sorry for delay in rating - I just returned from TX, caring for my daughter after her surgery. Great postcards that fit my interests so well, thanks! My fave is the browning stages of sugar - so quirky! Very cool giraffe and owl cards, too. Thanks for extra postcards and the wonderful little Disney envelopes you made --and the vintage Christmas cards are fabulous! Wow, what a terrific swap and in a lovely Peter Rabbit envelope with Disney postage, too.
Response: You're welcome for everything. glad you liked it. Hope your daughter is recovering well!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful written note in the notecard! I’m like you, swapped with the same ones and it’s good to get to know each other that way. So did you make a Pocket Letter yet? Thanks for the nice postcards and other goodies! I love those vintage pics! Makes me wonder what the story behind those are. Thanks for everything!
Response: You are very welcome. I have been sorting materials for my pocket letters thinking about good things to put in them and watching tutorials. Pumping myself up, lol.
Comment: I enjoyed the brown paper bag packaging...bonus points if you upcycled it! The little clues you wrote on the packaging for each gift was a nice touch:) I must know where you got that stunning note card you wrote to me. Cannot stop looking at it. Also, enjoyed the stamp of the hand holding the flower. So delicate. Enjoying the stickers. I am infinitely excited to use the letters for the year book! I have never seen such a thing. I am so glad I let you have free rein to pick for me. My apologies for causing you worry. I adore everything you picked out for me. You knocked this swap out of the park! Happy swapping in 2020.
Response: Glad that you received it and enjoyed it. It was fun picking things out for you.
Comment: What a welcoming envelope on a snow storm of a day we had. You decorated it beautifully and looks like it was done exactly for me, thank you. Now the contents... It was like opening a tiny package of goodies. Thank you for all you sent. I really, really love it all. My favorite are the stickers you sent. I always look forward to cherry blossoms in the spring. The stamps I am using on letters I am writing today... Everything was great. An awesome swap partner ---- Michelle in Michigan.

Comment: The girl stickers made me smile...where did you get those?? I also LOVE the typewriter paper!!! The glue didn't hold for the pocket, but it's ok cuz I will take it apart to use the paper in my journal. THANK YOU!!!
Response: ali express for the stickers, alot grom that pack i could not send to my niece so im glad they found a home. I've been using the atg scotch tape for my pockets and I've wondered how they hold up. I'll have to do some investigating and see what actually will hold. I also picked up that paper the same day before I read your profile, so it worked out nicely. So glad you liked the selections.
Comment: Thank you for such a great envelope! The answers were fun to read, I love the sheet music (with the notes of the piano teacher on it, it totally reminded me of my music books as a child learning piano, my teacher wrote notes and gave me music stickers!!). And most, thanks for your handwritten note.. What you said about doing what WE enjoy, for the fun of it and for no other purpose, truly resonated with me. If it's fun and relaxing and brings us pleasure, do it. Don't need to turn it into work. Keep work at work. Happy New Year!
Response: Great minds think alike. :) Happy New Year.
Comment: Hey hey! Thank you so much for the little package of goodies. :) Rainbows, unicorns, vintage stamps, and Nirvana are all roses in my eyes. I will check out the book. Thank you for the suggestion. Your mail made my day :D
Response: YAY! Glad you like. Thanks for the heart :)
Comment: Thank you for the genuine and meaningful handwritten letter that required some of your undivided attention and quality time. I am deeply touched. The beautiful ink stamps on both the letter and envelope are stunning and all the chicken wire, nest, feathers, and "hello" hens are precious! I am truly humbled and honored to have been your partner. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity. This is by far my favorite handmade, custom letter set! You spoil me! 💖❥💞❦💕❧💗♡💓♥️❤️❤💘ღ💝❣💘💚💟💙💜💛 εїз Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ ❤ ƸӜƷ εїз
Response: So glad to hear you received this and enjoyed reading. It was really fun to make.
Comment: Michelle, I loved your ATC's and the folder you made to send them in! How adorable! I fell in love with it the moment I opened the envelope! You are the one who took the time to make it special, not me! What an imaginative way to mail out ATC's! I hope you continue to do so for any you mail out! I hope also, that you had a great Christmas! Hugs, Brenda
Response: So glad it was received well. Success! :)
Comment: This was such a special package from the beautifully decorated envelope to the contents within! Thank you for sharing your story. It really resonated with me deeply, as I have some similar memories and experiences. I feel like the world would be so much better if everyone learned to love themselves a little bit more and treat themselves gently. Your story really touched me and was written so well. Thank you again for sharing it. It means a lot to know I'm not alone :):) My daughter knew the artist for the awesome cat/spider sticker immediately. I love these stamped tags, too. Thank you and Mery Christmas and Happy New Year! :):):)
Comment: I'm sorry I took this long to rate. I've been in so much pain and spending too much time in bed. I love your note and all you sent. How special that your 5 year old helped to put this together. Little ones are so precious and they love to help. I love the whiff of peppermint too. DoTerra is our favorite brand of oils. I like their shampoo and conditioner too. Thank you so much for this swap that is still making me smile! Happy Holidays!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed my selections and I hope you'll feel better soon :)
