Comment: Hi Inge! Thank you so much for this post & the cool stamps. Your message made me smile because I do the exact same thing with my son's sweet cereal too. More things are universal than expected. LOL Thanks again & we send you our best wishes.
Comment: Happy belated birthday! I hope you enjoyed yourself. Thank you for a very nice assortment of post cards and washi samples. And for my birthday wishes as well. Updated. I also appreciate the garland you sent. I will put it together on Monday (my birthday).
Comment: Thank you so much. I love how you described these as a trip.. I know that I will never get to visit overseas. I also was able to keep the envelope to reuse as I love getting ones that are the correct size for sending postcards.
Comment: Thanks for the cheerful chunk:) We have "honey nut cheerios" here, one of my favorite cereal snacks. Hope all is well there, it is a weird time here too but we are getting through it. Now if only we could get some nice weather! Sending best wishes:)
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard of birds. We in California are still pretty much on safe at home status but things are maybe going to open up by July 4 if things go well. There are a few businesses open but restaurants are still only doing take-out.
Comment: Hello! Thank you for your fantastic card. Yes I know bitterballen but I am more familiar with Kroket. WOW! I am craving for it now and may make kroket soon (perfect for Ramadan appetizer). Take care, Yuana!
Comment: Oh my! For a second I thought this card was for "ugly pc swap 4" haha. I was like.. this isn't ugly! I love classic cars. I used to go to car shows with my dad before he passed. I think they are fascinating and the colors are so much better than today's paint jobs. Thank you for this card!!
Response: Those memories are priceless! You’re welcome!
Comment: Hallo Inge, Dank voor je mooie haankaart. Mijn grootouders kwamen uit Hoogeveen. Zelf woonden wij een paar jaar in Emmen. Nu in Tiel, heerlijk aan de Waal, dat water miste ik in Emmen. Tot een volgende keer ;-)
Response: Wat grappig dat jouw grootouders uit Hoogeveen kwamen. Maar Tiel is idd een prachtige stad, en water trekt altijd aan...wij zoeken het altijd wel op
Comment: |Dank voor de leuke kaart. Ik was in 2018 in Helsinki om een Postcrossingvriendin te bezoeken. En wat waren er veel leuke winkels in Helsinki. We zijn toen ook naar Tallinn in Estland gegaan met de boot. Zo leuk die oude stad. Ik ga in juni met een vriendin een rondreis maken door Estland. Dit is een georganiseerde reis, dus helaas geen mogelijkheid om mijn Estse Postcrossingvriendin te bezoeken.
Response: We gaan zeker nog eens, maar dan met eigen vervoer...
Alvast veel plezier in Estland!
Comment: Hello Inge,
Thank you very much for your beautiful postcard that I received today. It made me very happy. Yes I can understand that people don’t want to have tourists in their front yard, and many tourists are really terrible... on the other side I can understand people who want to visit such beautiful place...
Greetings from Germany!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely PC and the stickers! It's definitely the most extraordinary way of sending extras with a postcard, I love it!
In Saint Petersburg you might like the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Kazan Cathedral and Saint Isaac's Cathedral, these are the main sights. And, of course, you must visit Peterhof and the Hermitage museum. Feel free to email me if you have any questions, I'll be glad to help you!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful sea turtle card! I can’t believe your daughter in law got bit by one. 😩 ❤️ Something is wrong with this site. It won’t let me give you a heart. I’ll try back in a while and see if it’s fixed.
Comment: LOVE this owl, what a wingspan! Would love to send you some suggestions for your trip to NYC. What are you interested in? Be happy to message my fav stationery shops, museums, etc. Spring is a great time for a visit too!
Response: Stationery shops: absolutely!!! Museums: love to! We would like to get a biketrip through Central Park (and surrounding maybe), and visit other interesting places. Especially places where locals (in NY ;-) ) would go to. You can send me an email.
Comment: Je had geen mooiere kaart kunnen kiezen. Dank je wel. Het textielmuseum vind ik zelf ontzettend leuk. Maar was altijd ver weg van waar ik woonde. Nu ben ik verhuisd en bovendien heb ik een dochter, schoonzoon en kleinkinderen in Tilburg. Dus ik ko nu regelmatig in Tilburg en ik combineer dat af en toe met het museum.
Comment: Received your PC today and I love the fact that you took the great pictures. We have the same problems with PC's of our city, can find lots with animals but few of selected ones show casing our city, I keep telling our daughter to do some but the cost to make them doesn't make it feasible.
Thank you for sending it to me.
Comment: Thank you Inge for the lovely postcard. I loved the design on it made from tools. Thanks also for the message of send some love and also liked the stamps of the flint stones and car. Happy swapping and keep creating.
Comment: Hi Inge, What a delightful surprise to receive your wonderful assortment of postcards, plus the extras. If I could have given you more than one heart, I would. Absolutely delighted and thank you once again.
Comment: Hoi Inge, altijd leuk om landgenoten tegen te komen. Ontzettend bedankt voor de grote hoeveelheid kaarten en de toepasselijke onderwerpen. Bedankt dat je het met zoveel zorg en aandacht hebt uitgezocht. Ik ben er enorm blij mee.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome bicycle pc and the stamps! We are a BMX family here too! We spent last weekend at the track enjoying the nice weather and riding while we still can before the snow hits. Thanks! :)
Response: That's cool to send a card to a fellow BMXfamily! It's not a very usual sport, but it's awesome! You're welcome!
Comment: Ha! You are right, that is an odd and weird postcard. Isn't it funny how we pick these things up with no purpose in mind? But hey, it certainly fit the bill for this swap! Thanks!! I think... :D
Comment: Thank you for the Monet postcard! I LOVE Monet! In fact, I have a reproduction of his Basin Aux Nymphias in my dining room! Thank you so much! You are the first GC person I have heard from in all the years I've been in Swap-bot! Happy to meet you!
Comment: I am sorry to rate you a 3, but the bags you send to me were all 3 signed or made by me, and you send them late. There were also serveral damaged stamps in the bags. We had contact, and you promised me a resend. Up to today I haven't recieved anything.
Changed your rating today. Hope to see you back as a swappartner!
Response: When there are not many participants on a swap, you don't have much choice, and can receive a bag you've had before. I did sent it last week, so you have to receive it soon.
Comment: Holy Guacamole! This is fantastic!!! I will plant these bee-loving seeds. My daughter is already trying to claim them as hers! I will gladly share them with her. This is such a super fantastic surprise. Thank you for making my day!!
Comment: Hai Inge wat een feestje in mijn brievenbus zeg! Heel erg bedankt voor de mooie crea kaart met leuke extra's! Zo gaaf mijn naam met de lettertjes! Dank je wel & fijne feestdagen voor jou en je familie!
Comment: Hi Inge,
Thank you very much. There are a few pc that I really like. I am not so into touristic postcards but..... I LOVE the envelope and the stamps including the priotity sticker!! So you'd earned the heart before I had even opened the envie!! What a pleasant surprise to find this in my mailbox!!!!
In het engels zodat iedereen kan lezen hoe blij ik met deze swap was!!!
Fijn weekend. Liefs van Ivy
Response: Haha, you're welcome! I enjoy making this envelopes of holiday-maps. Graag gedaan! We nemen altijd bergen plattegronden mee van vakanties, en ik vind het gaaf om hier enveloppen van te maken.
Comment: Thanks so much for the happy mail! I love the way you put the envelope together with the magnetic bookmark and the clear cellophane- very cool. I liked hearing how you've actually been in the presence of the 3000 year old tree, and I really like the postcard with the ticket stubs of rock bands. Thanks for being so thoughtful in your selection of cards for me. Be well! -Rhonda
Comment: Oh Inge, oh thank you so so incredibly much! I so adore the little moose. I can not wait to draw on them! And we loved the little pepernoten. I loves reading your letter about Sinterklaas. And the teas look so amazing. Thank you so so much. Good yule
Comment: Thank you very much. I love it all! The butterflies and butterflies stickers give to my baby girl she love it! And the cookies we love too. Save some for later. I wish you a happy new year and a lot of happiness and health!
Comment: Hoi Inge, Ik heb je pakje reeds ontvangen. Als stripfanaat gingen mijn ogen al open met de doos zelf te zien. Fijn dat je aan iedereen hebt gedacht :) De pepernootjes ben ik nu aan het opeten als middagsnackje. Hartelijk dank!
Comment: WONDERFUL. The presentation was beautiful, and I loved all the cards and PCs. I am going to try to grow those seeds but I fear they may not grow mainly because a lot of food in the US is treated with something to prevent you from growing anything from the food you find it in. Definitely one of my favorite packages I've ever received on swapbot!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard from Florida love the vintage look of it. I hope you enjoyed your holiday here in the states. My hubby & I vacation in Florida for 2 weeks at beginning of July and love it ..have a great day and happy swapping
Comment: Ooohhh so excited to get a matchbox from so far away. I had to put the piece of chocolate in the fridge right away - it is in the mid 90s here in Texas. Thank you for such an adorable little package.
Comment: Thanks for all the items! You didn't quite meet the swap requirements, though. The items should be picked out and WRAPPED before your partner is assigned - that's half the fun of it! I don't really want to give you a 3, though, because you clearly put effort into the swap. But I recommend you read swap requirements closely in the future. I can see from your profile this isn't the first time this happened. I would hate for you to lose your good rating over something like that, you know? Thanks again for everything! I do love purple. :)
Comment: Hello! Thank you. I am not sure you met exactly the requirements, though I created this swap...you should fill out the questionnaire in the same form as it is on this swap....but nevertheless you answered most of the questions and you made such a cute letter. I also love the Disney postcards. So I think it would be unfair to give you a 3 and I still give you a 5, because it's a great letter, nonetheless. You understand? =)
Response: thank you for the rating, I understood if you don't know how to write/begin a letter, this was a helping list...
Comment: hello, yes we've been partners before. Thank you for the awesome monkey PC. I used to have a little ole' lady in a wheel chair come in my office to volunteer. She called it "monkey" work that she was doing. Any ole thing she could do from her wheelchair was "moneky" work. I got in the habit of giving her little stuffed toy monkies from time to time. Then another girl in the office gave her a monkey one time and she would not receive it. She said, "only Ellie can give me a monkey, because I am her monkey." She has since passed but I cannot look at a monkey that I do not think of her. So yes, monkies are close to my heart.
Response: Hello Ellie, thanks for the story behind the monkey...now when I see a monkey-card, I must think of your story...
Comment: I love the cards! It was so exciting to open each little package of playing cards. I['m not sure if the foam ones or the giant ones are my favorite haha But I love them all! Thank you so much! =]
Response: The foam ones I used to play with when my children were little...not much. And the giant ones I use with scrapbooking, to alter...they are too big for my hands, haha.
Comment: Hi Inge. I received your cards today. Thank you! Years ago I read Van Gogh's biography. It was called "Dear Theo" and consisted of his letters to his brother. I have been a big Van Gogh fan ever since. Thanks again.
Comment: WOW! First of all, I am amazed! This was definitely the best swap so far, if I could give you 20 hearts, I would<3<3<3 The way you had wrapped everything so nicely and all the thigns you had included..I'm speechless! Thank you a hundred times!! Even though I had to do some detective work because you hadn't mentioned the swap name, the envelope was totally worth it:) Thank you so much!:)
Response: Well, thank you Jenna! It is so much fun to make something, I love to do it. It makes me happy that it's received well, and that you like it that much. That's where I do it for! And I'm sorry for the swap name ;-)
