Pluviophile. ----> Slytherin. Married to @GryffindorJen , living in Saint Louis, MO with our Bronson♥. Hockey fanatic. Crappy photographer. Music-a-holic. Daydreamer. Postcard swapper. Reality TV hater. Animal lover.

fishsteak rated for FS: Spoil Your Partner Rotten on Jul 30, 2018
Comment: Oh my goodness, I don't even know where to begin with the amazing package you sent. I really felt like you've spoiled me rotten. I am so excited about the postcards, comic books, measuring tape, and washi tape. It was really great to come home to your wonderful swap after a long day. Thank you for the fantastic swap!
Response: I am grateful for such an awesome rating. I was nervous as the comics came from overseas so I was wondering if the timing would be right. Sorry my note didn't make the package but I am beyond thrilled to have spoiled you. Much love always!! ♥♥

Comment: Thanks for the PC Diane! I've seen Manson twice myself, I freagin love him, of course! I would've loved your first time, the AC Superstar album was the one that first got me into him and has been my favorite to this day. Have fun at your next one! I totes thought about going to that one myself. I'm gonna try to remember to send you a PC back actually, I love fangirling out!
Response: The show was kind of bittersweet for me. The drugs have sadly deteriorated him beyond what I could've believed. Rob Zombie was amazing as usual though. I'd love to fan girl and chat. If you have Instagram, add me and let's fan girl!! ♥ OH - and thanks for the awesome rating. xo.
Inkeltje rated for July: Simple Storebought PC swap x3 on Jul 18, 2018
Comment: Thank you very much for the card with advertising and a bike! We don’t have motorized BMX-events here (yet), but I’ve seen it on TV. It looks great, but for me the ‘normal’ BMX-events are exciting/scary enough (especially with my own kids in it 😉).
Response: I was so excited to find the card and hoped you'd love it. You definitely should check out a Supercross event if it ever comes near. Thanks for the great rating! xo♥

Comment: Love the postcard and vintage stamps! Thank you! Oh, the Devils have issues but maybe someday they’ll get it together again, ha ha!!! I loooove the summer. The hotter the better for me (but I love my A/C indoors!!) Have a great week! : )
Response: Thanks for the great rating! The heat and me divorced when I noticed I sweat. LOL. Have an amazing day! ♥

Comment: Hi Diane, thank you so much for the cute chimpanzee postcard :D I like it a lot. Also thank you for the sweet note on the postcard. I'm happy that you enjoyed your visit to my Instagram <3 You're so lucky you've seen Radiohead! They must be such exciting experiences.
Response: Thanks for a great rating. I'm happy you liked the postcard!! Yeah, I am lucky to have seen Radiohead twice. The first time was from quite a ways back so they looked like ants, but the music was phenomenal. The other was front row in a venue that only held 200 people. Both were during The Bends era and concerts I'll never forget. xo♥
