Comment: Well 3rd times a charm, I received the 3rd resend this weekend! I LOVE every.single.thing. you sent....all the robots are so awesome!!! Thank you thank you thank you!
Response: I don't understand why you haven't received this - it's the second time I've sent it to you. The second time I sent it I spent a lot of money on things that I thought you would like and included some stuff for your son. Are you certain that neither of my packages arrived?
Comment: Thank you! This book sounds rather interesting. :)

Uniflame rated for RECYCLED POSTCARD SWAP #12 on Dec 1, 2013
Comment: I LOVE this card! :D Thanks!
Comment: NOV 29 UPDATE!!!!! The re-send got here today! And it's luvverly! Such a darling mini-letter too! Sadly: no sign of the original :-( Thanks for being such a great swapper!
Response: Kerry, I have logged on this week but only very quickly at work to check that I had no swaps that needed sending out this week. You didn't give me much time to reply to your message! I don't know why my swap wasn't received - it was sent by the deadline date - I will happily send again this weekend.
Comment: Hey Anne, thanks for sending this. I was a little bit conflicted about how to rate this, since you pressed send two days after the deadline and the stamp on the envelope says that you send this the 25th of november, which is a week late. But I got it and it meets the requirements, so I decided to give you the benefit of the doubt and rate you a 5. Hope you have a wonderful december.

Comment: Thank you for the lists. I have seen some of the movies made after the books and I'm in agreement with you. I didn't care for them either. I have never tried bunting tea before I look forward to trying it!

Hi... I have you for the Woman's weekly magazine swap. I am just enjoying reading your profile. You sound like such a lovely lady. I always loved the images in Arthur Rackham books. I used to have a coloring book of those images.. maybe I still do. I like a lot of the same things... except honey. Love the math and science quote.
