Comment: I love your ATC and handmade folder(?) card! they are all so beautiful <3<3<3 The tiny stickers you included as extras are so adorable <3 Yes, there are a bunch of different face masks nowadays LOL I personally am just grateful I can work at home though :P When the virus just started, I returned to the US on a long distance flight with mask on and no eating the whole time. It was in January, so I think others may thought I was overreacting. The lack of air caused a headache for 4 days. I now only need to wear it when I am out of the house, but I feel sorry for people who needs to wear masks day long for work.

Comment: Absolutely wonderful swap! Such great presentation in the lovely pocket folder you created. Then more cute envelopes with delightful goodies inside and so many terrific things to use in my mail art swaps! I especially love the glassine bag and useful label stickers inside and all the great faux postage plus the vintage US stamps for mailing! You truly thought of so many items to send and make this an amazing swap. Pretty swap card, too. Thank you so much!

Comment: 💌 Your envelope arrived today and I SO enjoyed opening it. The tissue paper wrapped around the stickers is so pretty! They're all fantastic but I think my favorite of all of them is the vintage cameras because I collect old cameras. Thanks for the assortment of small envelopes too! I can definitely use those in my future swaps for the extras I tuck in. Thanks so much for this thoughtful pick-me-up piece of mail 💌📬
