Comment: Thank you for the lovely answers. The feather looks great! Teleporting would be a great superpower, you could travel without caring about air fare or hotel costs, just teleport back home at night!
Response: Thank you for the rating.
I loved how the feather turned out on the silver paper, so i was quite proud. :-D I'm always happy with the small things in life.
Comment: Danke schön für die tolle Mail mit deinen Antworten. Ich fand es super interessant zu lesen und konnte mich in einigen Sachen 1:1 wiederfinden :-) Aber so ein tolles Kompliment habe ich (leider) noch nie bekommen... Das ist wirklich süß von deinem Freund 😊
Response: Vielen Dank für die Bewertung und das Herz. Ich fand die Mails meiner Partner bisher auch total spannend. Gerade, weil es auch oft so ganz unterschiedliche Antworten waren, als die, die ich gegeben habe. :-)
Comment: I absolutely loved everything you sent me! Can you tell me (if you remember), where did you get the fruit/drink sticker sheet? It looks like it's from a set, trying to see if I can buy more of it!
Response: I'm so glad, that the swap arrived and you liked it! Thank you for the heart and rating. :-)
I'll send you a Swap Bot Message regarding the stickers. :-)
Comment: This was a fantastically ugly PC and I loved it so much!! Gave me such a smile to receive it (and I really needed a smile), thank-you:) We had a very quiet Easter here due to restrictions, but my spouse made us a lovely ham that we were able to share by dropping off individual dishes to family members. Spring is just trying to arrive here, how are things there? Hope all is well, thanks again for the PC:)
Response: I'm glad to read that you liked the ugly card and it made you smile. :-) Even tho it would have been nicer if the smile wasn't needed.
Finally spring is trying to arrive here too, it was snowing just a few weeks ago. Easter was also very quiet but i had a lovely easter swap and that made it so much better. :-)
Take care and stay safe!
Comment: Thank you for the cute Koala card and I love the Dr. Seuss quote. I always loved his books as a kid myself and reading his books to my sons.
Response: I'm such a big fan of Dr. Seuss. His books are not that popular in Germany, and when i was a kid i never heard of him, but when i got older i discovered his books and i just love them. :-) Glad that you liked the Card. Thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: What a great start to the week when your swap was delivered today 😀. Thank you so much for all the yummy treats, I did not know what to start eating first 🤣, as so much choice. A really great selection of lovely Easter treats, thank you ♥️
Comment: Wooow, thank you, thank you, thank you so, so much!!! Are you kidding me?? So many teabags?? :O You spoiled me!! Now I feel like I didn't send you enough!! I am so very grateful for all of the different flavours, many which I haven't tried before. I look forward to trying them all <3 Thank you very much for swapping with me <3 Please let me know if you want me to send more when you receive my swap <3
Response: Hi Elisabeth, thank you for the rating and heart! It's not about how much you sent, don't worry. :-) I have sooooo much tea and i'm happy to share some. As it's not allowed to send items/goods with "normal" postage it was at least worth the postage that way. :-) I hope you enjoy the tea and i'm glad there are some you didn't try before. :-3
Comment: Thank you for your card. In reply to your NZ music question, I dont know a lot as I listen to a lot of christian music so dont keep up with the mainstream music. However, I do hear about a group called Six60 who I think might be similar to Fat Freddy's Drop.
Response: Thank you for the recommendation. :-) I didn't know them before but i like the songs i heard so far. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Oh my goodness, thank you SO MUCH for the adorable postcards! I love all 4 that you sent, I can't tell you a favorite! I hope you and yours are doing well and staying safe in this crazy world. We stay home for the most part, although I did go to the grocery store for the first time in 3 weeks, oh my it's so nice to have "fresh" food (not canned!) again! :) Take care and be well. <3
Response: I'm glad that you like the cars. :-)
And i'm happy to hear that you were able to go to the grocery store and buy some fresh food, i can imagine that it must be like a bit or paradise to have fresh groceries after eating canned food for a while.
Thanks for the rating and heart! Take care.
Response: I'm surprised that the cards reached you so fast. I thought it'll take longer. Glad, that you liked my Postcard and the cards from the Surprise PC Swap. :-) Thank you for the ratings and hearts!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautifully colored card and cool stamps!! I struggled to stay in the lines of my card, you did an amazing job!! I'm listening to "What a time to be alive" while I type this! It's very retro sounding so far, like late 60s, 70s! I like it a lot!! It makes me think of a beach party, or Charlie's Angels or something! Thank you for the recommendation!! :)
Response: I struggled a lot with the outlines also, i wish i would have some fineliners or gel pens or so, but then it's always a risk of coloring the backside too. :-) I'm glad that you liked the song. it's super cool to explore artists from other countries and i like their music style.
Thank you for rating and the heart! :-)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful kitty postcard! Just add a touch of white to it and it would look like my Sofie girl. I'm sorry to hear about Victor, that's so sad, but I hope you get some kitties soon, they are so much fun! :D
Response: Glad, that you liked the card. :-) We want to wait till the situation with Covid calms, because for now it's super complicated and hard to even make an appointment for meeting kitties, so it's better to wait. Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Thank you very much Sylvia, for the sooo cute cat PC! So sad about your cat Victor. I'm sorry. I know exactly from experience about beloved pets. I've lost so many & your heart goes to pieces. Our cat Bella is 10 yrs. old & so far still healthy. We have 2 dogs as well. I wish you luck finding 2 male kitties & I hope do find them.
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart.
Because of Covid it is pretty hard to search for cats, so we decided to wait until everything is more chill till we search for our new companions. :-)
Comment: Hello ^^ thank you for your beautiful box, both for the polar bears and for the content (which I will look at later at Christmas XD) I read the note so I stopped in time from opening the gift :) From what little I saw is something handmade (?) ahhhh I'm so curious <3 thanks for everything, a hug
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. :-)
I guess you will find out on the first December. ;-) I don't want to give any spoilers.
Have a great day, hugs back! :-)
Comment: Sylvie, thank you for the lovely postcard as well as the recipe. I cannot wait to try it. It should be perfect now that the weather is super chilly here.
Response: I was just thinking about making some again myself as it is also chilly here. :-) It tastes soooo good when you serve them hot with a scoop of vanilla ice and vanilla is the best for that recipe. :-)
Comment: Thanks for the cute postcard. Hope you got some snow ! If I could I would send you all ours.
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. :-) We did get snow in the meantime, but it's a bit disappointing as it always melts kinda fast and it doesn't have a good quality to built snow sculptures.
Comment: Thanks for your card! Shigure is one of my favorites too.
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart! I was reading the manga when i was in my teens and the first character i liked a lot was Shigure, but the manga and anime series has so many very awesome characters. :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter! I loved it and I will write back very soon. I look forward to getting to know you 🙂
Response: I'm glad it arrived. :-) There are so many Problems with the mail right now so i'm always a little nervous about swaps. :-D
I'm happy, that you want to respond and i'm looking forward to read from you. :-)
Comment: I loved the Sinner. I wasn't all that impressed with the last season, but the first 2 were great.
Response: The best season was the first one to me, it was super thrilling and my bf and i binge watched all episodes. The second was also good but not that exciting as the first and the third was in comparison very lame. :-)
Comment: Lovely postcard, thankyou! The puppy with the red rose is so cute! I also loved the movie, 'Saving Mr Banks'. You know that PL Travers, the author, was an Australian? Fabulous story. Thankyou for both the card and the time you took to write such an interesting note. All the best for 2021! Tracy
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and heart! :-) The movie was really great, great story, great actors, and i loved the original tape recording from PL Travers in the end.
Happy new year and all the best for you too. Let's hope that 2021 will be better.
Comment: Thank you for the card. It's not that bad - I quite like it.
Response: Thank you for the rating! :-) That's the most interesting part of the Ugly PC Swaps to me because you really never know what will come and even if someone thinks something is not that nice, another one might like it. :-)
Take care and all the best for 2021.
Comment: Thank you so much for this beautiful swap. I loved reading through it so much. It was so lovely and almost eye-opening. I hope that you have a nice year. I also thought that it was quite interesting to get to know a new perspective on many things. Much Love, Veronika;)
Comment: Dear Sylvia, what can i say ? thank you so much for your beautiful decorated envelope ,lovely stamps and ...... so many teas ....and extra pastilles ... you really spoiled me and made my day ❤️ !
wishing you a 🍾HAPPY NEW YEAR🍾 !
🍾glückliches neues Jahr 🍾 ! Monique x
Response: Hi Monique,
i'm glad that you liked my envelope. i'm really not good with decorating them but i gave my best. :-) Hopefully you will enjoy the teas. :-)
Happy new year for you too! ❤️
Comment: I'm so sorry for the late rate. Google placed in my promotions folder. I didn't know the Never Ending Story was German. :o! That was a great movie. I saw Die Welle too. Good movie, a bit of a Das Experiment vibe. I haven't seen the other ones yet, but I'll check them out. Jenseits der Stille is probably first on my list to watch/find. I also saw Mein Blind Date Mit Dem Leben now, that you mentioned in your other swap. I loved it! I placed it on my favorites list on IMDB. Thanks for sharing.
Response: Don't worry, it can happen. :-)
I'm glad that you found movies that you didn't know so far.
Mein Blind Date mit dem Leben is a really good movie and it's so cool that it was after a real life story.
Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard, Sylvia. I have received various postcards from you. I am also vulnerable to alcohol. So, a drink like juice looks delicious. I hope you have a wonderful New Year. -Mina :)
Response: It's always fun to send postcards to you. :-) Thank you for the rating. Happy new year!
Comment: Thanks a lot for sharing your list. I know the Wave it was shown at high school during history classes. I was really fascinated by it as my teacher told me it was a forbidden movie (that's was before the internet era). Never knew that the never ending story was adapted from a German book.
Response: Glad you liked my list. :-) That's why i like those kinds of swaps, because there is always something new.
Comment: I don't know a lot of German actors/movies. I only know Das Experiment and the Rubinrot trilogy. So I was very curious for your list. You definitely made some great picks. I really want to see Mein Blind Date mit dem Leben now. I'm going to try I find myself a copy.^_^ Thanks for sharing.
Response: Great that you liked some of the actors/movies. :-) Mein Blind Date mit dem Leben is a really nice movie and the actor is super good. Hope you can find a copy. :-)
Comment: I was a little girl too in the 90's. I didn't adore the 90's as much as you did, but you prepared a great list anyway. ^_^ The songs from Extreme and Coolio were on my list too. I knew most of the songs, only not the German songs. I always love to discover songs in other languages. Thanks for sharing.
Response: I saw that we had those two songs in common. :-) I don't love 90's music but it brings back so many memories. These days i definately prefer other decades and other genres but this music still has a special place. It's kinda the soundtrack of my youth. :-) Thank you for the rating!
Comment: BEST CARD I'VE EVER RECEIVED!!!
That's funny you're waiting for snow. We're way up on temperature this year. It's hardly been cold at all. It did rain on my birthday Dec 10th and it was cloud. Usually in Phoenix it's cloudy and rainy on Thanksgiving day (4th Thursday in November here), but this year it came late.
Thanks again! Oh so much! Thank you!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked the card. I was a bit insecure if it might be a bit over the top. :-D
Snow came but it's already gone again. Therefore it was raining.
Belated happy birthday! :-) I hope you had an awesome day.
Comment: Thank you for your list :) Ich kannte kaum einen Film auf der Liste, also habe ich leider nicht soooo viel mit den Szenen anfangen können. Aber ich lieeeeebe Ziemlich beste Freunde! Es gibt davon ein Remake? Meine Güte, die müssen wirklich jeden Film adaptieren. Und üblicherweise nicht zum Vorteil XD
Response: Danke für die Bewertung. :-)
Ich hatte wirklich Schwierigkeiten eine Balance zu finden, da ich nicht wusste ob jemand die Filme gesehen hat, deswegen wollte ich nicht spoilern, und manche Szenen hätten mehr Hintergrundinfos gebraucht, damit man sie versteht. Ich hoffe manche Szenen konnten dein Interesse wecken und du schaust vielleicht mal den Film, das war zumindest mein Ziel. :-)
Ja, es gibt ein Remake mit Brian Cranston und Kevin Hart. Ich mag Brian Cranston, aber der Film war einfach nicht gut für meinen Geschmack...
Comment: This was a great list. I loved your number song 'falling slowly' the most. I can't believe no one came to watch them sing in that store. :o Now I'm curious for the movie. I loved the movie Les Intouchables. I still don't get why they always want to make remakes from foreign movies. If they're good just show them with subs. I loved the French version too and that dance scene was epic to me. XD
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and heart. I'm glad that you liked my list.
I do get it with the remakes, it's just for the money, but the US version wasn't good. But well, that's the good thing, you can always stop watching a movie. :-D
Honestly, there are no words !! Nothing I could say that would do this fabulous swap justice. Sylvia I am truly overwhelmed by your generosity!! The parcel was really nice decorate and every parcel was nice wrapped therefore! I didn’t Open all I will add some under the Xmas Three. My husband so pleased about the idea of spending the First Advent Sunday eating Lebkuchen. I do love the different teabags selection you add for me. And I will try your mom‘s recipe next week. I am really looking forward to trying it! But I feel ashamed when I think about my quite ordinary parcel ... would you like to do a private swap with me again on Easter 🐣?
In any case I will send you soon a RAK. Once more thank you !! 🙏
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🌈STAY SAFE🌈
Comment: Wow, what a terrific swap, so many different items, all of them brands I never saw before. Everything was wrapped so well, with cute stickers and washi. Thank you so much, I love all the items you sent to me. It's like a virtual holiday to Germany :) I have already tried the dresdner herrenkonfekt and paprika crisps, both so tasty, and not common flavours here Ireland. I just love these kind of swaps, thank you
Response: So glad that you liked the box and that i found things you didn't know before. :-)
I hope you'll enjoy the sweets and treats.
Thanks for the rating and the heart. :-)
Comment: OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! This is hands down honestly one of the best parcels I have EVER received! And fresh Lebkuchen??! I think I'm in heaven - I didn't even know such wonders existed :) I haven't opened everything yet and am going to open it bit by bit - my swap seems so ordinary in comparison - please let me know if you have any requests from the UK and I would love to send you something else! Thank you SO much - this deserves a zillion hearts! <3
Response: Thank you so much for your rating. :-) It was a lot of fun for me to put the package together and i'm really glad, that you like it!
In germany almost every bakery has fresh lebkuchen, it's kinda like a competition for the bakers. :-D But those i sent you were completely new to me so i thought it would be fun to send them. Enjoy the package and if you want to do another swap sometime after christmas (the mail system here is a bit overwhelmed this year) just let me know. We also have some nice easter goodies in the bakeries. ;-)
Comment: Hi Sylvia
A big thank you 😊
For a gorgeous 📦
Haven’t peek yet
Saving for Christmas
If you ever want to do another swap
Please let me know I picked up a nut cracker tin like the train one I sent you
With chocolate coins thanks again
Take care stay safe
Response: Hi Andrea, i'm glad, that the package arrived. :-) I'll send you a private message.
I guess you mixed up the tins, as i got the nutcracker, so i think you have the train now? Take care! :-)
Comment: Thanks for sharing your amazing list, I really love the I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas song (it was new to me). I was surprised to find Nick Schilder on your list (I hadn't heard of this version yet) Andrew Sisters always great to listen to. Well lots of new great songs to add to my Christmas playlist
Comment: I don't know many German bands/singers except for Tokio Hotel, Nena and Rammstein. (I only like the first two.) So I was very curious for your list. Those songs hold lots of different sounds for me, which is fun. The songs from Faun and Tim Bendzko are definitely my favorites and my hubby is into electronic music, so he liked Deichkind a lot. That website with the translations is a great tool, I'm definitely going to use that one in the future. Danke für die tolle Musikliste. (Probably my best German. :p) Great swap!
Response: I'm glad that you liked my list, and of course your hubby too. :-) Thank you for rating and for the heart. Take care and stay safe.
Comment: Thank you for sharing this wonderful postcard with me - I especially liked your drawing of Cookie Monster with a delicious cookie on back & hearing about the German fairytale! Huge thank you for sending it in an envelope too 😉
Response: I loved your Postcard too, i really like the classic disney movies. :-) Thank you for the heart, have a wonderful day.
Comment: Sylvie, if I could give you a dozen hearts for this swap, I surely would! I loved reading your detailed answers and that is exactly how I had wanted this swap to go. I wanted long and detailed answers and yours was perfect. Thank you!! (P.S. When I get some time to do it, I plan on sending you a message through Swap-bot and commenting on different parts of your answers that I found interesting.) Have an awesome day! 😀
Response: Thank you so much for the heart :-) I'm glad that you liked my e-mail. It was a lot of fun to anwer the questions.
I'm looking forward to your message. :-) Have an awesome day too and stay safe and healthy.
Comment: This was more than extra special it was incredible!! I love all the items you included (so so many) and the decoration of the box was incredible. I really appreciate the effort so much thank you!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. :) It was super fun to decorate and i tried to find as many halloween themed items as possible. :D You are the most welcome!
