Comment: thank you for the suuuuper awesome postcard. I love these collages, sometimes my tumblr is full with them :D Also special thanks for sharing the lovely view from your window (it must be goorgeos), and for the cool stamps too! Finnish stamps are genius with all these special effects. I wish I could give more than 1 heart! <3
Comment: Thanks for this wonderful "polar bear in flowers" postcard! The polar bear stickers are too cool! It is raining here too with big winds and seas! We have had big boats hiding in Uyak and Larsen Bays. You would love to come to Alaska! Lots of animals to see! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard of the
Arctic Circle area of Finland. I love the postage stamps too. I hope there are more swaps with this theme. Imagine all the beautiful postcards traveling around the world for this swap!
Comment: Hello Miia! :)
THANK YOU! I LOVE this "Greetings From" by Ewa Stochiñska!!
Autumn is my favourite season too! The leaves are all starting to change here in New Jersey - I will be posting many photos on my instagram over the next couple of months of the beauty of autumn here in New Jersey!
Comment: Thanks for the postcards! So nice to see the variety as they go around the world. Also thanks for the extra postcard - I thought that was a moose, but the card identifies it as an Eurasian Elk! I had to look that up, and yes, they are the same thing. You learn something every day! Thanks again and happy swapping!!!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely Trading Coin, Miia. And or the nice, colorful envie and sweet stickers :-) I also just 'discovered these round ATC's and LOVE making (and receiving) them!!! This will be my second one. And I think there will be following a lot more of them, because these are great to do!!! :-D
Comment: Received the travelling postcard and will forward on so I can continue his journey home.
I also love the extra one you sent of the northern lights there, they look absolutely amazing! Another thing to add to my bucket list. Thank you.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute cat and cupcake post card. Special cards get a place on my wall for awhile. And this one is definitley one that is going up on my wall. Wish I could give you two hearts for it.
Comment: Hello.....what a nice pass and paste postcard to work on.... I have ideas already! I always love to receive from Finland you have the prettiest stamps.... and I love the tiny card you wrote on.... Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you Miia for the wonderful notecard and postcard, also your envelope was beautiful! It's awesome that you started working as a mail woman, I myself wanted to be a part-time mailman too. Me and my gf checked your website and will pick some things soon as we are obssesed with mail stuff :D Thanks again and happy swapping ^^
Comment: Thank you for the card with the owl--and the owl stamp. We had quite a few snowy owls wintering in the area. Unfortunately, airport workers shot the first one because it was on the runway. There was an outcry and the next owls were trapped and relocated. It wasn't necessary to shoot the owl because there are no commercial flights at our little airport--only some private planes. Susan (brooklynbunch)
Comment: Hello Miia! Thank you for the amazing view of the "Northern Lights" of Finland. the snow covered trees look "mysterious," weird in the winter landscape. I love this view. Wow! And thank you for the fun postage stamp.
Comment: Beautiful card and lots of interesting facts about Finland - some friends just got back from a trip that included Finland; they said they liked Finland a lot. They also mentioned the number of saunas! I had to look up The Moomins - they look cute! Thanks again for the informative postcard!
Comment: Oh Miia, how I love everything that you sent! A special thank you for the wonderful adventure-oriented word stickers (I already have a project for them!) and the vintage bird things <3 It warmed my heart!
Comment: Hi Mia! Received your postcard today and you know i loved it. I laughed seeing a cat and an owl together on a branch of a tree! Hahaha! Thanks for your sweet message to me. Yes, it is fun to cook for others and to have a garden and share food with others. It is a lot of work though. Not a lot of people like to work here though. So i feel very fortunate that i can share with others lots of cool things. You are an artist but dont consider yourself one. Hehehe that is a sign of an artist because we all have to gain confidence as people view our creative wild ideas. Hahaha! Thanks for the beautiful card and your thoughtful sharing! We are kindred artist beings!
Comment: I love this postcard with the old man peering into his mailbox! All your decorations on the other side are wonderful as well, and I love the stamps. Hope you had a great date night with your husband!
Comment: Loved everything from the hedgehog stationery to the stamps to the PC's. I opened them in front of a friend who immediately stole the old people pc - she then apologized but she did not return it:-)$
Comment: OMG - Love the doxie puppy PC. I haven't heard of a N Puffindog - I'll have to look it up. Our two are a huge part of our family/life-they make us laugh everyday! (So sorry for the late rate) Take care, Annette
Comment: Hi Miia! It finally arrived! What a great PC! I love Audrey Hepburn too! She was great! Winter is here too! Ick! Too cold for me! Your dog sounds wonderful..... Happy Holidays to you and your family!
Response: I'm happy you finally got it! Happy Holidays to you too!
Comment: What a sweet postcard! I've never heard of a Norwegian Puffindog, but I looked them up - how sweet! And we have some Norwegian way, way back in our family. My great-great-grandfather was from the Orkney Islands in Scotland, and several generations back from him, his ancestors came from Norway. So my kind of dog! I also had a dog that was mixed and had extra toes, and the vet thought he had Great Pyrenees in him, but he looked kind of like your dog, so maybe... Thanks for sending the postcard to me!
Comment: i trudged through the freshly fallen snow to get to my mailbox today, and your package made it well worth the effort! thank you. i'm now enjoying some tea and thinking about who to write on my lovely new stationary. i hope we get to swap again soon.

Comment: Hi Miia. Thank you for the pink pocket letter. You have chosen lovely paper for the pockets. And all pink goodies! The handmade buttons are cute. Love the owl stickers. Even your letter is pretty pink paper. I can highly recommend searching youtube for 'pocket letters start to finish' videos.

Comment: Thank you for the great letter and the bookmark - I love it! I also loved the stickers and stamps you used on the envelope ^_^ I have recently rediscovered the library too, I've been taking my children but decided to start looking at books for me too.

Comment: Hi Miia! Thank you so much for the awesome photography pocket letter! I love the photos of your gardening and all the goodies! Has it stopped raining yet? We had a week of rain, well over 6 inches with some flooding near us - amazing how six inches doesn't sound like much but all the issues it can cause! Hope it has gotten nicer for you and thanks again for the awesome Monday Happy Mail! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you for your rating and the heart! :) Today it's not raining, or it should start again in the evening... And should be raining next days too. Here in Finland rarely rain so much that it could cause some problems, but anyway it's been soooo rainy summer. Beautiful summer days to you and happy swapping! :)
Comment: Thank you SO much, Miia for all the amazing things you sent! You were so thoughtful and generous! I love the ribbon and the rik-rak, the cute flower rubber stamp, and the gorgeous ink pads.

Comment: Thank you so much, Miia, for the wonderful packet of cards. You couldn't have chosen more perfect cards for me. I love every one, but am most thrilled with Inge Look's ladies in the rowboat! You are so very thoughtful to have picked out just the right cards based on my profile preferences. Best wishes for happy holidays.
Comment: Hello Miia! I received the postcards yesterday, thank you, and THANK YOU for the additional 2 pc's! Postcards are very difficult to find in Colorado, other than vintage. The variety you sent are wonderful! Thank you again. Patricia
Comment: Kiitos ihanasta kortista! :)
1. NÃ¤istÃ¤ kahdesta kohteesta en osaa pÃ¤Ã¤ttÃ¤Ã¤ kun ovat olleet niin erilaiset, eli kaupunkilomana Lontoo on ollut ehdoton ykkÃ¶nen ja rantalomana Portugalin Albufeira on jÃ¤Ã¤nyt mieleen :)
2. Viimeksi rustasin kasaan Doodle Envelope swapin kirjekuoren :D
3. Takapihan vadelmat ovat juuri kypsyneet ja tarvikkeet lÃ¶ytyvÃ¤t kaapista niin kasaisin varmaan kinuskisen vadelma-marenkikakun.
Oikein mukavaa kesÃ¤Ã¤ sinulle! :)

Thanks for your note on cute paper, too! I love that it is your family that is #1 on your happy list - same for me! Thanks again for making me so happy today!
Comment: I started reading your postcard without checking first to see where it was from (swap-bot or Postcrossing), and my eyes were bugging out! :oO My first thought was "why is this person telling me this?". Then the light bulb came on, and I checked to see where it came from. Now it made sense! ;o)
Great "lie", and thanks so much for sending me an Inge Look "Grannies" card! :oP
PS - If your husband is anything like the men I've been married to, I'd get the hell out of Dodge (an American saying)! ;o)

Comment: Miia, belated thanks for your gorgeous cat postcard. I also really love the wedding rings postage stamp. not because it's wedding rings, but because of the printing... matte metallic and shiny metallic together. Beautiful!

Comment: Hello, Miia...I am thrilled to get the lovely card you sent! I love the frog! And it's so nice to meet someone else who likes frogs and collects them like I do. Maybe we could create a private swap sometime and swap a couple of frogs? I would be happy to have one from your country. Thanks also for the delightful frog stamp! ~Gail
Comment: Hi Miia!
I just got your card from the Post Office. Nice thing to find on Christmas Eve. :) I adore this card, the baby on it is so cute and of course I can definitely see how they'd all be wanting to get a photo. Thank you so much! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a joyful New Year.

Happy swapping with swap-bot and maybe our paths will cross again sometime, wishing you happy seasons wishes..regards Barbara
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard. That must have been a wonderful place to spend your honeymoon. Our neighbours are from Portugal and they visit every year. Sounds like a great place to retire as well.
Comment: Thank you so so much for amazing postcard (I love UglyDolls and almost all postcards from Chronicle Books) and very kind words. I'm planning to join Postcrossing for a long time. I think I should do it soon :)

Response: Thanks for the rating! I'm so happy you like those! I love that stamp too, it's so cool!
Comment: I love these PCs ~ thank you so much! I enjoy getting PCs from other countries because they are usually so different than what we get here. It took me a while to figure out the lazy kangaroo and actually had to look at the back. . . we don't have kangaroos here (unless they'd be in a zoo) and I've never seen one 'in person' ! Thanks again for the great PCs!!!

Comment: Excellent, Miia! I love the cellophane and the handmade card! It arrived without a scratch on it! I was very excited to get a card from Finland. My Grandmother and family are from Helsinki-the Rasaanen's. I have never been there but maybe someday!!

Comment: What a lovely birthday card you sent. it made me very happy. I love the postcards for the girls. They will feel very special. Thank you for a wonderful swap! (I also love the stamps you used. My latest craft is making notecards with collaged paper and used postage stamps. These will be great)
Comment: First of all, thank you for your cute postcard! Your baby is probably already with you, so congratulations to you! :) I hope he/she had a good start into life and is well and healthy!
All the best to you! :)

Comment: thank you for the great postcard! :) i'm glad to hear that you got some sun recently! it's been very sunny, but windy and chilly here, but very nice for spring! congratulations and good luck with your new baby!
Comment: Congratualtions on your new little one in the family.
Thank you for the cute postcard and interesting stamp. I have collected postage stamps since I was 8 years old and I think Finland has some of the most beautiful ones.
Comment: Thanks a lot for the beautiful postcard. I love both, roses and reading. Hope you are well and that you will have your baby soon. I became grandma for the first time in January and I am so happy and love the little Marlene dearly.
Comment: Looks yummy!!! Thanks for your note about your weather there as it is always interesting to know what's going on 'over there' in the weather department ~ you're sounds similar to ours right now!
Comment: I just received your card today. Thank you so much for the lovely card & also the compliment! Wow, you must be very happy & excited because you're going to have a baby soon ^^ Congratulations & sunny February days to you, too!:)
Comment: Your envies arrived today - thanks so much! I love the images you chose - they worked out well for placement of address, return address and stamps. Beautiful presentation - I appreciate the ribbon and will use it to dress up my envies on the next swap! All the best for 2010! Jen
Comment: Thank you for the weird postcard! :) Sometimes I think recycling should really work like this - with a special bin just for those men who weren't quite good enough. That's awesome that you get to run such a fun store! Congratulations on the baby!!
Comment: I certainly love the notebook you got me very much - my cup of tea exactly (the cute little boy and girl and animals). Nice to be thinking it came from wintry Finland to sunny Singapore. Hope to swap with you again sometime soon.
Comment: Hello... Thank you so very, very much for the WONDERFUL froggy postcard! I really love it, and the great stamp was a special treat! Would you like to send me your mailing address and I think it might be fun to keep in touch, since we both love frogs!?
Congratulations on expecting the baby! That is so great! The best of luck to you!
Comment: Hola Miia! Thanks a lot for the great bunch of postcards! I really love them all and the stories on them :) Have a great time and happy new year with the new baby to come ;)
Best wishes to you and loved ones!
Comment: Such a beautiful postcard, and all the way from Finland. Thank you! What does the quote mean? "Mina tarvitsen naita hiljaisia hetkia kesan kukkivia aamuja Muistoja, jotka kantavat talven tullen lammittavia."
Response: It means something like this:
I need these
blooming mornings of the summer.
Memories that carry
and heats in the winter.
Comment: Thanks for the great card and the interesting note -- we like Thai food, too. In fact, we just like food! We just tried a new Greek restaurant in our town and had a great dinner. Thanks again!
Comment: Hi, Miia...

Comment: Dear Miia,
I've just got your cute postcard of the 3 hares today.
I love that !!
Thank you so much.
Take good care of yourself
so that the baby will be healthy and strong.
Comment: Hello Miia,
Thank you for the lovely postcard you created with the many supplies I sent you for this swap. I knew that I sent you more materials than you would need, but I wanted you to have a nice selection of products to choose from and still have a nice batch of products left that you could pursue other personal creative endeavors s in the future. One of things I liked about my postcard was the simplicity. Another was the varied use of materials, and thirdly the use of the bucket picture. Hope we cross paths in the future at other Swap-bot swaps and that this happens sooner than later. Sorry I have been so slow in rating this swap for you. Thank you for your patience.
Comment: This was a fun swap and I enjoyed reading all of your postcards. It was neat that you were able to use all different postage on your various postcards and that all but one was a food-related. Right on target!
Comment: so beautiful! except i gave the candy to my daughter with braces and i told her to suck on it and she chewed a tiny piece and her bracket fell off- oh well no worries i called the dentist they'll put it back on when she gets them tightened. :D
Response: Oh no... how bad luck that candy made that... But thanks for the rating! :)
Comment: Wonderful card, Miia -- thank you very much! I think I have one from Finland and was looking forward to another, but instead I got my fist one from Vietnam! Enjoy your travels thru Europe this fall!
Comment: Thank you for the greta card. I adore monkeys. The weather here is also rainy alot for this time of year but we just have to keepour fingers crossed the garden doesn't get ruined because of it. Enjoy Carlenemary
Comment: Hi Miia,
I received your candy yesterday..tee hee. Thank you so much for all of it. We liked almost all of it. The salty licorice is new to us and we're not used to it so we didn't really like it. But everything else is great. I especially love the sour candy. My husband loved the Pepe licorice. The chocolate was so good. Thanks again for all of it.
Response: I'm happy you received my candies and likes almost everything :) Salty licorice must taste weird but we love it here in my country ;)
Comment: How cute you look on the beach in Vietnam! Thanks so much for the lovely papers and the cute mushroom too! How nice of you! I love it all and will swap with you again anytime! blessings, Gypsy
Response: I'm happy you like my atc and other stuff! :)
Comment: Hi Miiiia!!
Your liquorice arrived yesterday: my birthday!!! I love the gift, very much!!! I like the liquorice, but I didnt imagine as black! Looks like another candy we have here!! Thanks a lot!! But the taste is strong and great!
Don't worry, you will receive diversificated candies!! Thanks for satieted my curiosity!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the VERY Cute card!!! I loved it and it was such a great idea!!! I can't wait to show my friend at work. She is going to love it as well. She is all about monsters. Thank you too for the wonderful extra paper!!! I can't wait to put it to good use :)
Comment: Thank you do much for the beautiful postcard.
I'm so jealous, you have your own postcard
store. I guess you can join any postcard swap
you want and not worrying about where to buy
p/c you just go to your store and pick one.
Lucky you. Take Care.
Comment: Thank you so much! Your card kit arrived today. I know I can make some really cute cards with all the paper and embellishments you sent. It is fun
to get stuff from another country and
see some different paper than what we
have. retrogrammy (Judy)
