Comment: These are so cool! Super delicate, they inspire me to paste them in a journal and write and draw and paste/collage around them. The ones with the tags still attached are fantastic-- I pictured making a mobile out of a bunch of them. This was a delightful swap, with so much room for creative interpretation. Thank you for the lovely prompts, beautiful mail art, and extra special treats. As always, I feel fortunate to have you as a partner and friend. ♥
Response: So glad you liked my tea bags art! Thank you so much for a lovely rating, as usually you word everything so great! Hugs!

Comment: My postal worker JUST hand-delivered your gorgeous envelope Maria!! Thank you so much ♥️♥️ I have to leave for work so I’ll sort through all the wonderful goodies later. I can’t wait!! Thank you so much, wish I could give more hearts. Hoping you like what I sent even half as much! Just going through everything now & I may have sent you a page from the Sears Roebuck catalog also lol!! It’s a bigger page so I’m thinking they’re at least from different years maybe? Anyway, I really love everything!

Comment: This swap deserves 10 hearts! I love the clear wrap, the collaged envie, and all the wonderful goodies inside! It truly is an "inspirational kit." Thank you so very much! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: That collaged envelope had many 'clients' lol... So glad you liked it everything. The clear wrap was the best way to met the swap requirements but at the same time protect the envie en case you wanted to re-use it (I even didn't touched the seals). Enjoy it! Hugs and thank you for your ♥ rating!

Comment: Oh, my, Maria, what a wonderful envie of pure fun! You so generously sent so much and so kindly chose items that perfectly fit my interests! So much Disney and then all the delightful vintage items - wow! That pop up Pansies in a pot card is spectacular; love the postcards that all made me smile. I love the Disney and Christmas postage! Everything is just great and as always you packaged it all so well in a fun decorated envelope! Thank you for a terrific swap that I am still oohing and ahhing over.
Response: So glad you liked all I sent (the blue Disney bands were from a package my granddaughter got and I thought about your collectibles likes, I hope you don't find them weird). Thank you for such a sweet rating ♥

Comment: Thanks for the nice cards you sent, all matched my profile. It would be nice to get one or two Costa Rican postcards if we swap again. I do not have any from your country. Best wishes to you.
Response: I have noted it!! They are really crappy but I will send you as soon as I get some!! I didn't have any at the time of sending this swap and I left out some notebanks I had ready for you and I missed to include them in the envelope. I will send them together.

Comment: An envelope full of flowers! A lovely greet of spring flowers. :) I know the colourful problem. Using all colours of the rainbow in one project feels like it's too much of everything for me. But in the end the result works out just fine! Like with your envie. Thanks so much!
Response: I have been suffering with this parcel. Until today, the system didn't show it on transit, still doesn't and I had only my side showing it left the country but nothing else (it's happening with all my certified envelopes :( but at least now I know they are getting to their destinations). I hope you can use any of the treats! Sending love!

Comment: Oh my goodness...! Your aprons are awesome! Thank you so, so much!!! The fabric is awesome (not only the two stunning prints, the quality is special) and how you made them... just perfect! My mom was here today and she saw your two aprons when I opened your mail. She loves them and said, you are clearly a perfectionist (just like me...). :D It will cost me some overcoming to use them (they are so beautiful und I don`t want to ruin them!) but it will be a pleasure to wear them while I bake Christmas cookies with Konstantin. :)

Comment: I was so glad to receive this package of delightful yellow goodies from Costa Rica! The Leche Dorado recipe sure looks good and I can even read the Spanish. The little dotted envie is okay, its really cute. I never rate down when a swapper sends something on my dislike list - don't want to ruin anyones score for some little thing. There sure are a lot of great items in here that I will really enjoy using.
Response: Ohhh, that's why I included the note regarding the mini envie, because I had very clear your likes and dislikes. I hope something in there is good enough to be used.

Comment: Ay María, al fin llegó tu envío y no puedo creer lo hermoso que es todo, quedé completamente en shock y absolutamente fascinada. Amé todas las cosillas de ephemera, están hermosas y también lo de Flow, que nada de eso lo tenía y me hizo muy feliz! Y qué hermoso cómo armaste un mini pack de cosas para mi libro de recetas que ya pronto comenzaré a trabajar en él y me viene súper todo lo que enviaste, lo encontré demasiado lindo para ser verdad. El monedero pequeño de gatito es adorable y ese té no lo había visto antes. Conozco la marca, pero ese tipo de té no lo había visto, así que feliz de poder probarlo, yay! Amé este swap porque se nota mucho el cariño y tengo muchas ideas sobre qué hacer con todo lo que me enviaste hehe. ¡Muchas gracias y hasta otro swap! Feliz de seguir intercambiando contigo <3
Response: Me hace feliz que te gustara todo. Estaba aterrorizada porque tu siempre envías cosas hermosas 😍!! Un abrazo y espero pronto otro swap :)

Comment: Thank you for your generous package! Thanks for the unusually stained paper! Whats that mushroom shaped design? I', guessing slices of a citrus fruit .... :) You've been a wonderful host & addressed all the participants' issues! It was a fun new thing to do! Thanks for all the extras!! My daughter is not here ... she's gone to my moher's place, but I thank you on her behalf, she will LOVE the stickers, the postcard, the greeting card, the Toucans ... are the scrapbook paper for her or for me ? :) She'll make delightful "fortune teller"s out of them - here & now they call it "tippy-tippy-top" :) Most importantly, I want to congratulate you about the coffee & spice paper. They have so much "character"!!! If they weren't so fragile, I'd write to penpals on them. Now, I'll make some layered mixed media cards out of them. It's not my "type", but you got me converted ! :)

Comment: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing selection of book-related postcards :)! I´m so lucky to have this many, and I love each and every one and also the stories behind them. You´ve really read my profile with care and I appreciate that. The bookmark-one is my absolute favourite, you see. But I also share mutual memories from my childhood and visiting the local library, from where I always returned home with a huge pile of books with me. Libraries and bookstores still are one of my favourite places and I definitely would like to visit that bookstore in Oregon. Thank you once again for all this and making my day and tens of hearts and all the best for you (and happy reading) :)!

Comment: O Maria, something seriously went wrong with this package. I had to collect it at the postoffice and it was soaking wet 💦😥 It is drying now on the radiator. I could take it apart for a little bit and saw your wonderful boiled paper. I know it is going to be all right, I just have to be patient and that's the hard part. I will let you know how it all turns out and hope you get my sending soon now. Have a wonderful Holiday Time with your wonderful Family. Take care my friend.
Response: Oh no, this made me really sad. I included in this package, an OOAK altered brochure, my first one ever that I cannot repeat, I can make a new one but it will not be the same :(... I will resend Neeltje and I will open a claim here (Who knows at which point it got trapped in danger the package but at least I can express my annoyance)... So upset with this!!!

Comment: Wow, I think you went overboard - this is chock full o'goodies. ~~ I was going to ask you what glue you used because it stuck very well. Only a single corner is at all loose (and I was picking at it to see). I used Xyron and ran it through the embossing machine. Any loose edges were reglued with Beacon Multi-Grip (which is *supposed to* work with metal & glass.~~Yes, I love the boiled paper!
Response: So glad you liked the package! I have no embossing machine or big shot or anything like that. I worked out the Aluminum foil and glued to the light paper with regular white glue and when it ''dried'' out, I painted it as desired, then I bought two pieces of wood and pressed the paper (individually wrapped with wax paper) with them, adding bricks to the stack to add weight and flat better the pages. I need to try all you mentioned and compare results! Cecily, thank you for your hearty rating! :)

Comment: Dear Maria, I fear both packages have gone astray. Please don't resend again. Maybe the first two will still show up! SuMay Update: It would seem that it is stuck at customs.
Response: Edited: Sonia, no customs. There was nothing added to the package that would compromised it. Please check your local office. Is what the other German friends do with my sent packages. This is related with the signature they should gather from you as the receiver because I sent the packages with international tracking # with that purpose **** Sonia, I was able to find results for the package: RR808427848CR. IT says: ''RR808427848CR: The consignment was received at the International Logistics Center Frankfurt in Germany on June 12''. So this means, it has more than a month in Germany. Please visit your local postal office. These type of packages are retained due to the need of a signature. I sent you a private email with the picture of what I am telling here. Please let me know as soon as you find out information.

Comment: First - love the envelope with the cute big cutout of Alice and the cheshire cat! Classy old fashioned typed return address label, too. Very interesting illustration postcards, my favorite is the card with the perky chicks on the gingham check background! Now, were all the other goodies for a different swap? I did not see another swap card. If it was all extras for this 3 PC swap -- my goodness! All so wonderful. I love the whole sheet of Bambi stickers and the great tickets and fabulous cover and title pages for The Little Prince library book! Yes, that Roman postcard is indeed an unusual take on motherhood! Classy handmade map envelope, too and nice Costa Rica map. Love the unique metal paper clips that say "handsome" and "valuable!"
Response: Those were goodies Shirley!! Hugs and happy you enjoyed all! Thank you for your comments and hearty rating.

I can start my own Gallardo Gallery now and show off everything you've made for me. I love the vibrant, radiant colors you use that makes your work so alive. Thanks many times again. I love you.
Response: Jajaja... I am glad you feel that way!! Love you too!! And you know, this package is an example of how crazy is my Postal service. 3 months to reach you is an awful time :-/ I wish everyone would understand this the way you do it! Thank you for your rating and heart!

Comment: Amazing as always, dear Maria! Love all 5 postcards plus the extras! Isn't that classy quote card (love how it is textured) is so true: Happiness is in the heart, not in the circumstances! My joy comes from God being with me, despite my circumstances! I adore the cute rabbit romping through the leaves. What a fun cat "paper doll" card to cut out and assemble - though I love it as a card itself. Well, they are all great; and then you of course sent even more goodies! Delightful stickers, that gorgeous Eiffel Tower bag and Paris map and love how you create beautiful watercolor papers for your notes, which I can now use in my art. Wow, Madrid looks stunning from the great map and photo brochure -- I hope you had a fantastic trip! Thank you again for a wonderful swap -- is that actually super wide owl washi tape on the cute envelope?? So-ooo happy and cute!

Comment: Thank you for sending this swap (it came bundled with an earlier swap you'd marked as sent at end of January, and smelled strongly of smoke, as stated in my rating for that swap).
Response: @Lou, you are rating me correctly but I can read the anger you have towards me, the same you have shown for the last 2 months. I will write here the facts not for you, but for the 'viewers'. People know me and know you even for the longer period, so they can make their own conclusions: 1) My dear mother died 3 years ago of lung cancer because she was a heavy smoker. She managed to teach us not to smoke and I hate smoking. In 48 years of my life, I have ever smoked nor ever tried 1 single cigarette. Nobody at home does either and If you were reading my profile properly, you would have found that ''smoke smell'' is listed in my dislikes, so there is no way the content went out smelling that way, it is impossible. 2) I always do my best to send good stuff (this is confirmed by my ratings and the comments I have received unless all those raters are liars which I doubt!!! ). Also, try my best to tailor the swap to each individual's profile and you were not the exception but as I am always willing to make up any mistake or unexpected situation with what I sent (even if not my fault, still it is my responsibility to cover it), I have sent you a gift card from Amazon with the value of $50 and I hope you can buy something happy and something Valentine's fun (Your order number is 114-8417054-3705856). 3) You and I have communicated always. I can show you a whole list of the messages here and via email, we have exchanged. You have no problems of communication with me as nobody does. I rate promptly too. I really thought it would not be any problem to send both swaps in the same package (the May flat happy mail and the Valentine's resend version) but in separate packages to avoid confusion. I gave the package enough time whether to arrive or get returned to me (this takes approximately 7 months) but since you're my receiver, I just went ahead and resent. Nothing tricky or hidden here. Do not use excuses to make clear you want to tarnish my reputation. I swear other swappers are happy with my swaps. 4) I have a REAL ongoing problem with our Postal Services. If you need a letter from them, I am more than happy to ask them for 1 (it will be in Spanish but you can translate it) that will go out signed by the manager and with the office's stamps. I do not need to lie. Others have understood the situation. 5) If I were a flaker or scammer, I would not be around to face any concern or expend the money I expend not only in shipping but tags and wishes. I do not need free stuff either. I play the games and grant wishes or swap because I love it. Period. 6) You are mad at me because I asked you to step back regarding a difference I had/have with @IsabellasNow for 3 swaps that have not been received yet (still have not and I am sure Kristy is not resending because is easier for her to not do it if she is backed up by friends on her side that think ''I am the one calling for more'') but I choose not to rate instead of affecting her name but the fact is that those swaps are not received and they worth a 1 each if I were following SB rules). She asked you for intervention and help yes, but your duty as a responsible host, was to at least, copy the other 2 hosts that also happened to be part of other groups to let them know your ''concerns''. None of those swaps were even played in WIYM, so there was not a single reason for you to exclude the other hosts m if the idea was to ''help'' or even to intervene when the swaps were not played in WIYM. 7) I left your group WIYM because you made @IsabellasNow a founder and that was a clear evidence for me that WIYM has different standards of what I expect to find in the groups I belong too. Again, nobody is perfect, we all deserve second and third and more chances, but I understood your message too and all the messages you sent after I drop, showing happiness because I left and yes, it was another reason for you to begging to chase me as if I was a criminal. Anyway, the swapping experience between you and me is over. That is the good part, right? 8) One more thing, few ratings are left with swaps I made in your group. precisely yesterday I wrote everyone that has not rated me or that I am still waiting from. Hopefully, this gets sorted out this month and we have over the whole thing.

Comment: The more attention you bring to this and the more I think about it, the more I think you were NOT correctly rated and should have been given a 3 for this swap -- I am going to check which rating is more correct, when something is received months late without communication until months later. All of the nonsense below from you (that goes on and on and on) does not explain why the swap was sent months late and with no communication whatsoever at the time. It wasn't until I asked you about a different swap no received 2 months later that you said you'd be sending this swap with another one. Further, it appeared to be a scam and I do not like that you make it sound like you bribed me with a huge gift card for a little flat mail swap. I've waited weeks, but you never corrected what you inaccurately went out of your way to state below in great detail, that you gave me a "gift card" that you admittedly rescinded. Here's what happened, to refresh your memory: You "bundled" this with a swap sent much later, this arrived on 30th of May, with the other swap that was also sent late (we'd had no communication about it even - or ever - being missing, so this was not a "re-send," it was simply a swap sent very, very late). Also, the heavy smoke smell will need to be aired out before anything can be used. I don't think it is advisable to wait until you have someone (again assigned) as a partner and then send swaps together and bundle. If you are having such bad mail problems and cannot keep track of what is coming and going, then it is unclear why you continue to sign up for more and more swaps.
Response: Edited 07/02/2017: Let it go @Lou! Leave me alone! It is enough! You do not forgive me for asking you out in a matter that was not your business. As for the gift card, I wanted to send something extra since you said in short that all was crap (I know it wasn't) but considering I was not there, I sent it and I waited for it to be cashed out but you did not. Not even bothered to answer me when I asked you if you'd use it... So I got it back! ... Period... ***** @Lou, you are rating me correctly but I can read the anger you have towards me, the same you have shown for the last 2 months. I will write here the facts not for you, but for the 'viewers'. People know me and know you even for the longer period, so they can make their own conclusions: 1) My dear mother died 3 years ago of lung cancer because she was a heavy smoker.

Comment: It got here today! It had been opened by customs and re-taped closed. If there was a letter or note in it, they must have taken it. Was this the original one, or did you resend? I love everything in it! Thank you so much!!!!
Response: So very sad they opened the package, did they break anything? They always break stuff, I hope they have not taken anything out of the package either. Not sure which one is this, I have sent twice lol, but I am delighted you get one package at least and that you liked it. Thank you for the rating and the ♥

I have been really desperated, testing different ways to send my packages. Sometimes they arrive fast, others take months, some are MIA, some are returned.... Please keep it all...

I think my favorites are the flow card of the happy Frenchman, the pretty little art card "un p'tit mot" and the lovely Poas Volcano Park postcard -- except that might be the volcano causing all your terrible air pollution! And you do know I love Disney! Thanks for a very thoughtful swap. I am so sorry the postal system loses many of your swaps. If I ever get the original one you mailed, I will let you know and send you something!

You sent two sheets of stickers which were fantastic. All the postcards you sent, it was great to see two of them I sent out in other swaps get back to me and also a big thank you for the Block Island Lighthouse postcard. Your little hand painted treat was so cute. Thank you so much for everything and you wrapped it all so pretty, Shirley

Comment: Hi Maria, I am rating you a 5 because I think you misunderstood the swap : it's for a handmade card, not store bought. Having said that , the PC you sent is lovely and the stamp and the picture on the PC match . I can appreciate how difficult it must have been to find a PC that matched . I strongly remind you to read the wording carefully in swap requirements. Thank you so much for the beautiful assortment of postage stamps, they are lovely as well. Happy spring swapping. Blessings of peace love light.
Response: I appreciate your generosity and your suggestion. I got stuck in my mind the explanation of what is a maxicard and left in the back the key word of the swap'. It was certainly a challenge to match the PC and the stamp and I did my best to send exactly that but missed the hadmade part. I am redoing your swap so you get what it should be sent in first instance but still thank you for understanding me. I will not blame my Spanish brain either. I guess all was a fatal combination of factors. I am sorry for the confusion and again, thank you.

I especially like the Swimming with Guppies one and the Blessing of the Fleet one - such beautiful colors on both. Of course I am thrilled to get the Edward Hopper one - it is one of my favorites of his. The egg one is so very interesting and the green parrot is so darn cute but not too cutesy for my taste :-) Thanks so much and hope to see you again at the mailbox, yours or mine, in future swaps ~~

I'm so new to this package swaps, but hopefully, if you want again, we'll swap? Thanks for the inpiration on my next package swaps too! I'm just floored I got these all.
Response: Oh, that is great!! I am glad it did not take that long to arrive (I have been suffering for messy shipping times) :-) Glad I have inspired you! Thank you for the prompt rating :-)

Comment: Maria, Thank you so much. It has been an incredibly stressful, bad week for me, so what a great surprise in the mail today. I love the notecards you sent. You only needed to send 2 but you sent an entire package...you are so sweet and generous. I really enjoyed reading through your profile as well. I have always wanted to go there. I will be in Chile for a couple months very shortly, and I think we are close? How neat would it be if we could plan a private swap to exchange in person?! :) That would be so fun. Anyhow, thanks again.....such a great gift. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. P.S. I'd love to private swap sometime?
Response: Oh Tammy, makes me so glad the package arrived fast and that you liked it... I must say, Chile is far from Costa Rica, will take over 8 hours flight but there are middle points or you're more than welcome to come to Costa Rica... 'mi casa es tu casa'.... It will be fantastic!!! Will PM you to talk about private swaps :-) Hugs and Merry Christmas to you and Gratian!!! And thank you for the lovely rating!!

Comment: Thank you for the art postcard and the Segovia quote - I've certainly never thought of things that way! I'm going to play his music right now...
Response: I grew up hearing 'The Aranjuez concert' by Joaquin Rodrigo played by the master Andres Segovia so I did with 'El amor brujo' and many other amazing compositions... He has been part of my life.. It was great to find out in your profile you liked his music :-) Glad you received the card and did not take so long to reach you... Hugs

Response: You're welcome! I am preparing local postcards with my own pictures and will send you all one so you all can be my testers ;-) In Costa Rica there is no tradition regarding postcards, they were very hard to find :-/ Anyway, glad you have received yours.

Comment: You box arrived today, and I don't know what to say. It took me a long time to get ready to open this beautiful parcel. I din't want to destroy any of it, so I had to be very careful. Every tiny little spot was covered in beauty. I managed, but than I opened the BIG BOX and it made me tear up. So overloaded with gifts. I didn't know where to begin. Absolutely overwhelming, gorgeous and so full of love. You would have stole my heart with only one item, and now there are so many I can't even count them. How can I ever express my gratitude for this overflow of goodness.I am blown off my feet by your textile art. I will frame it and hang it in my studio. I know it will transfer your wonderful soul and spirit. I want to look at it every day and get inspired by it. So amazing we found each other via SB, it feels so blessed. Now I need a cup of coffee ლ (✿ ◕‿◕) ᓄ✂💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💛❤💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚💙💜💛❤💚
Response: Oh Neeltje, I am so glad it finally arrived! I was getting worried :-) Feeling happy you enjoyed everything I sent. When you get your cofffee, just think that is what I drink every morning!!! It will be like having coffee together! And please take a picture when you get the pieces framed! I totally forgot to take one of the piece I made with roses and purples for you:-)... Many hugs!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely assortment! I love the pin, and the cards are beautiful. Dahli is one of my favorites of the last century, even if I often have difficulty making any sense of his work. Everything is so visceral.
Response: Indeed but enlightening and leads you to think out of the box!! He was/is a master of all times!! Happy you received my swap and you liked it all!! Hugs!!

Comment: Dear Mary, a million thanks for the swap that sent me, I think it is far, the best I've received since participated in SB. The bookmark is beautiful, like the postcard and the super sticker, I loved the tea, and above all, I LOVE COFFEE, and best ... the book ... I do not really find the words to thank you all. You are a sun.
Response: Virginia... My pleasure! Was a great surprise to find a so alike person!! Loved to discover that you read as much as I do and we had similar ways of growing up... It is the first but not the last swap for sure!!! Please cheers in my name while you are drinking the coffee :-) Many, many hugs!!!
