Comment: Agnieszka, thank you so much for your letter and the extras. I love the postcard of the library from Trinity College in Dublin. I really enjoy audiobooks, but I usually read science fiction or fantasy. I only read a few detective/thrillers per year ❤️
Comment: Hey there! I'm so sorry for the late rating- life's caught up to me and I'm trying to play catch up now! Thank you for passing along the postcard and for the adorable stickers- I can't wait to pass it along myself! Take care!
Comment: Thank you so much for this addition.
It's hard to complete and send it back home to Tessa. But I will manage.
I love the extra PC as well.
Our group has a Facebook page. Do you have a possibility to join in?
Otherwise I can send it by mail.
Response: Can you tell me what is the name of this FB group in PM? Thank you! I've received one of my cards back and I was wondering where can I show it to everyone because it turn out really beautiful. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: What a cute envelope you made and I love that it was crafted from Polish calendar so I can see the. Language on it too! You spoiled me again with so many wonderful things presented in such a pretty manner!! I love the postcard, envelopes, stickers, die cuts and stationery!!
Comment: Nice! Thanks so much for the ferret handmade envie! And all the stickers and other goodies you sent, especially the birthday wish! I just bought some Polish candy from the store - its tiny hard candy called Pikolo in orange, apple, and berry flavors. I love it! Thanks again!
Response: I think I know what candies you're talking about. Fruit mini candy in wrappers? In my bank, they used to stand on the counter as a small gift/snack for customers. They were delicious. However, due to the pandemic, small snacks like this disappeared ;). We share a birthday and I found it super cool that got you as my partner in a swap where I can use my imagination on what to put in the envelope. I'm so glad you like that happymail ;). Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you Agnieska for making such a fun swap and I loved all the super pretty things you sent me!! The tulip postcard and the fun notecards and stationery I really appreciate all the heart you put into this swap!!
Response: Thank you very much for the rating! I'm glad you enjoy the swap ;) I love putting happymail together. It's a great fun!
Comment: Oh my goodness! First, being greeted by such a cute doggo on the front of your envie...made my day ღ You also shared so many cute and adorable goodies! Thank you for making and sending me such a lovely swap ღღღ
Response: I am so happy that you like the happy mail ;) Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Received your so sweet & cute Seal PC today and thanks so much for it. I just love Seals! They are my most animal that lives in water. But it's such a shame, they have to be protected against awful poachers.
Response: Yes. I love seals too. I think they are cute. And also very smart ;) Thank you very much for the rating!
Comment: I’m afraid I’ve been super busy the last several weeks, and have not had time to pay proper attention to your list - so, here’s your rating! I will pop back in, change/update this text, and give you some feedback in the next little while!
Response: Don't worry. I am also quite busy lately. My son has summer break and I am also taking a little break from being a host for this reason ;). Thanks for the rating! I also enjoyed the list you've send. I didn't know many of these songs.
Comment: Thank you very much and loved your kitty postcard, so cute — and what a great great “INSIDE” joke, too!! -- Update: I got your actual postcard for this swap, kitty in the apple tree was great & sure glad that story isn't true!!
Comment: Hello Agnieszka. Thank you so very much for sending me the three beautiful extra postcards. House of Postcards has a lovely collection. I will be sure to purchase from that seller with the quickness. PostalLove has a nice collection as well. All the best to you today and always. Vita Lynné
Response: Yes. House of Postcards is great. I keep an eye on their website all the time because they often have some newcomings ;) Thank you for the rating! I am very glad that you like the extras.
Comment: HI there!! Thx so much for your beautiful envie and goodies inside. I just love the postage stamps. I think you are my first exchange with Poland. The liberation stamp was top!! The cards you included were really nice. The travel one I am sending on to my daughter as it is the perfect quote for her. Thx again and see ya 'round the postbox. Tama
Response: Great! I am so glad that you like what I've sent :). Thank you very much for the rating!
Comment: What great choices ! Especially Careless Whisper by Seether. It really is better than George Michaels. I love it! I know just about every other song you have! All sound so good though! Thanks so much!
Response: Yes, This time there are a lot of "classics" on my list :). So great that you like it. About covers -- I could probably make a very long list of songs that I believe are better than their original versions or very different, but also great :). Thanks for the rating and for joining my swap.
Comment: Can't wait until I have enough time to listen to all of your songs. I remember that we had the Roxette album with Joyride as the first song on vinyl. Sometimes, when I asked nicely, I was allowed to put it on, under supervision, of course. My stepdad's records were not to be touched by anyone but him. But sometimes I did in secret when no one was home. Little rebel that I was. :D Thank you for sharing the songs and hosting these swaps! I enjoy them so much!
Response: Roxette is my dad's favorite band so I know a lot of their songs ;) Ha ha. Little rebel indeed. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: I recognized a lot of your songs (that’s a good thing!) but it was a real treat to hear a couple of songs in a language I didn’t understand ... something new for my “Liked Songs” playlist on Spotify! Thank you!
Response: Thanks for your email and ideas. Slavic languages are nothing like English ;) Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your list :) I recently subscribed to Kindle Unlimited again for their 'sale' & saw that they included LOTR ebooks and audiobooks and considered listening to those again. I read the books 10+ years ago. :) I think I would still like to listen to those, I only ever read the print copies. You've given me an idea! :)
Response: Thanks for the rating. I think LOTR are good for listening to ;)
Comment: Thank you for the photos! I had a similar feeling too, that this time the generator didn't "read" all of my words like in the first round. Seems like everyone still managed to create some really lovely & fascinating pictures, though! The pictures you generated for me are very charming ⚘🍰🐚
Comment: Hey there Agnieszka! Thanks so much for the so very cute kitty, with the flowery hat. I love it so much! The cat reminds me of Tiger cat I once had named Mittens. He was a spit fire. But so loving. Yeah, I do agree with you, that this PC is photoshopped. There's no way, even my cat would put up with something on her head, ha! Well, you have a wonderful day!
Response: That's probably even better. Sometimes I see a postcard with a cat in uncomfortable clothes or smth like that, and I don't like that someone treated that poor animal like that. Thank you for the rating! Have a wonderful weekend!
Comment: OH. MY. GOD. I LOVE THIS POSTCARD SO MUCH,and the bat sticker and washi tape, omg, I love it SO SO much <3 <3 <3 Thank you! Bats and cats are my jam!!! I'm jealous of your bat forest!
Response: I am always so happy when I can find a good home for a postcard. Bats are my little helpers. I have no idea why some people are afraid of them. I find them very cute. They save us from mosquitoes & probably deserve a medal or something ;). Thank you for the rating! Hope to swap with you again.
Comment: I noticed that the site was ignoring a lot of my words, too! But, honestly, I love these images you sent. The glittery and rainbow images are exactly my aesthetic, and that pokemon image is perfectly silly ♥ I also want to know how that game would go!
Response: Thank you so much for the rating! Yes, I was laughing at loud when saw that "Pokemon cover" ;). So silly and totally not what I expected.
Comment: Hi. There are only three statements, so I guess you wrote two truths and a lie? But I'll guess the lie is that you don't like bergamot (I'm not even sure what that is 🙃).
I love the stamps and stickers you used.
Response: Really? I am so sorry for overlooking that. I don't know why I wrote only 3 sentences. Yes, one of them is false and you guessed correct. It's a flower. An ingredient in perfume, and sometimes in tea. Please let me know if you want a resend. I feel bad about this mistake. Anyway... Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the darling Kitty PC! I just realized the sticker matches the PC. That's so cool! Have a wonderful day!
Response: Thank you for the rating! I was wondering if you would notice a matching sticker. It's really a coincidence, because I ordered these kitty stickers from an online bookstore recently, and got the postcard in another swap quite a long time ago ;)
Comment: Thank you so much!! For the art postcard, the postcard, the stationery and the book pages! Hope you’re my partner again soon too, so I can send you something in return. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
Response: Thank you for the rating ;) Have a wonderful Easter weekend as well!
Comment: I received your swap today. Thanks so much, for the most lovely & cute Easter card and for the sheet of Easter stickers for swap ( with 2 extra) and for the PC for swap ( with extra ). I love all that you sent me, Including your special note! And, Thank you very much for having joined my swap! 😊 To answer your question. Yes, We here celebrate Easter. I always fix a nice size Ham and with it I make Homemade Macaroni & Cheese, ham gravy & Mashed potatoes, Green bean casserole, and Corn pudding ( a side dish ). For a dessert I make Lane cake. Which is a 3 layer cake with fluffy filling of raisins & coconut between layers and a white frosting on top. It is so good! You can find this recipe online. But the recipe I have is a family recipe, that was passed down from my great grandmother. What you & your family are having for Easter dinner sounds pretty good. I hope you & yours have a wonderful Happy Easter!
Response: Thank you very much for the rating! I am glad that you received the card on time. I googled Lane cake and it looks amazing. Definitely have to try it because I love everything sweet ;) Happy Easter!
Comment: I love music 🎶 and I can’t sing either. My sons and husband always tell me not to quit my day job. Perogis are a fave Christmas treat of mine!!! Not many people know what they are! Purple is my fave too!!! I loved reading about you. TYVM for sharing!!!
Comment: Hi Agnieszka! Thank you for the gorgeous postcard! It made my day =D I have a black cat named Soju (no, I wasn't drunk when I named him, that would be my sister...who was also sober but she had a thing for naming cats after different types of food XD) The family has a total of 11 cats, by the way =D
Response: Soju is a very cute name ;) My cats are named after characters from books and anime. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for your email, it was very nice to read about you! :) I used to write down my dreams as well and took them into my novels, but nowadays I don't do that anymore :( and mostly I dream about working, lol
Response: Lol. Working in your dreams must be frustrating ;) Most of my dreams are too strange, but sometimes I can get inspired by them. Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the super cute hedgehog postcard and your sweet spring fairy doodle! I really like seeing the Polish stamps, too. Hope you are well and will have some nice Spring weather soon. ❤️
Comment: Thanks for the list, great job not repeating from last round.
Response: Yeah, It gets harder and harder with each round ;) Some songs just pop out in my head every time I think about a category. It's hard to chase them away and come up with something else. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Great list I love it! Thanks. Ideas for next go round bands with numbers or letters in em or even songs with letters or numbers. I think of what does the fox say as an earwig lol. I loved dance monkey.
Response: Thank you for the rating ;) I appreciate the ideas (again). There are so many possibilities... Good thinking about the band names. Thanks! Oh, I need to add a few prompts to my list now ;)
Comment: Thank you for your card, and the translation of it, and especially for explaining what "dyngus" was! My first impression was that you were wishing me "wet dung" and I was wondering "... is that for fertilizing my garden... or why would you wish me that?" :)
Response: Thanks for the rating! I was just drinking coffee and when I read what you wrote about "dyngus" I almost spat it on my laptop ;). Well... I guess I can wish you a well-fertilized garden as well. Fortunately, at Easter Monday in Poland, we only pour water on each other. We're not THAT weird :).
Comment: Thank you so much for such a cute postcard! i love the colors and the little snail is adorable. I also loved the quote you wrote on the back. Song of Ice and Fire is one of my favorite book series and Tyrion is also my favorite character!! Well, him and Arya. They both are tiny and kick butt!! Thank you for such a cute swap.
I hope you are doing well and staying safe. My heart goes out to all of the people in Ukraine. Poland is doing such an amazing job helping with the refugees. It give me hope for the future after seeing how loving and giving people are during this awful time. Thank you to your country and I hope that all NATO countries help you guys deal with the problems that you've inherited and that the fighting ends soon.
Response: Thank you for the rating! I'm very glad that my PC arrived safely. Yup. Tyrion and Aria are the best ;) I don't know if I mentioned this on a postcard, but I have a T-shirt with this quote on it. I like to wear it to sleep.
Comment: Thanks for the songs! :) I was wondering what if I use Hungarian songs as well in the prompt, and I got the answer from your swap! :) So I will also include some Hungarian titles and translate them into English :) Thanks a lot for organizing the swap :)
Response: Yes, exactly :). Everyone should be able to see that the song is matched to the category..Thanks for joining and for the rating! And also... good thinking. I'll add that info about titles that aren't in English in the swap description next time. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. It never crossed my mind ;) Sorry.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful, painted, artist trading card. It was so special to receive something from Poland. I will treasure it always. Poland is standing with Ukraine😍🌻Also, thank you for the Lovely postcards and cute kitty stickers!
Response: Thank you for the rating ;) Yes, Ukraine is our neighbour. I know a lot of people from there. Now even more, because there are many refugees in the area. We can only hope for a quick end to this war.
Comment: Your list and email was super funny and I'm on board with Sirius & Kaz!! They are on my list for sure. The others you mentioned, well now you have piqued my interest! Adding those books to my tbr list! Thanks for such an incredible list of bad boys and recomendations! xxMuggleMom
Response: Thank you for the rating. Yes. That was a fun swap :)
Comment: Hey! I'm currently hooked to audiobooks so your list was a blessing. Found quite a lot of interesting titles and it's always interesting to find thrillers/crime genre under this format. Sorry for the late rating. I've been travelling and hence couldn't check before. Happy reading to you!
Response: That's okay. Don't worry. Life happens. I am glad you received my list and also that you find my recommendations interesting. I don't know about Charlotte Link's books, but I think I've seen others in audiobooks in English. I am going through the "thrillers' phase", even though it's not the genre that I usually read. Right now listening to books by Lisa Gardner and really like them so far. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much!! I love what you did with the bookpage! And thanks for the extras!
Maybe you could send me a book page when you ever send me a swap again? I’d love to have it for collageing in a foreign language! And of course I could send you some German ones too if you’d like ;) I’m pretty sure we’ll partner again when you continue with this swap! It’s so much fun!
Response: Thank you very much for the rating! Yes. I think that's a great idea :). I'd love to have some German-language materials for creating my collages. I like using book pages and magazine clippings in my projects. I have already signed up for the next round :)
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Normally we go to my aunt's house and a friend's house for meals and egg hunts but this year we stayed home due to the global pandemic. I hope next year will be better for social gatherings! Hope all is well with you - thanks for the resend! :)
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! We spent the holiday at home due to the pandemic, but I missed seeing family and having an Easter egg hunt - hopefully next year! Thank you for resending this - glad it arrived today. :)
Comment: Sent a PM on 6/2 which was read but I did not receive a reply.
UPDATE: Thank you for the re-send
Response: Yes, I read it. However, I didn't have time to write back earlier. I sent the original swap and also a replacement for the second time (sent on this Monday) I wrote you PM today, after work - 6/9. I can send you a photo of the resend. // I am very glad it arrived safely this time. And really quick! ;)
Response: Wow. I sent in in January. I am very glad that you received it. I wonder where this swap was during those months. I can't be the host of that series right now because I can't send mail to some countries due to a pandemic. In addition, the mail system works extremely slowly. I also hope that everything will return to normal soon and we will be able to restart this series.
Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for sharing your long email.
We had easter last weekend, we stayed at home and had some lovely meals.
I try to stay at home and also working from home...I miss shopping but staying healthy is more important.
Comment: Hi Agnieszka, lovely to hear from you! These are very scary and daunting times and its good to hear in one way that you are doing okay and coping during this crisis. Thank you for your very thoughtful and incitedful email, it really shows how affected we all are. I hope you stay safe, especially going to work and everything, look after yourself, okay? Where you are does sound quite scary, we are in a similar situation but not to that extent at all. Oh, we don't have huge disinfectant sprays at present, but I understand where you are must be daunting and I understand why they must take these precautions. I totally get that, it must be pretty tough for you at the moment, but I am so glad to hear you're making it work and keeping your family safe ^_^ Thank you also for the information and stuff, we don't really hear much over here apart from America and England so I tend to just do a research to see where countries are before getting too overwhelmed with it all. Yes, we have the same with buying supplies and everything and where I live doesn't usually stock up much anyway, so it's a bit scary not to have essentials like milk and food, but we're getting there and seeing so many kind acts lately too. There are some lovely signs in the windows of our street just to let everyone know to stay positive and take happiness in the little things. I hope you, your family, and friends are all staying safe, happy, and healthy in this time! If you ever need to chat about anything, I'm always happy to message. We can all unit and get through this! Have a lovely day, you deserve it! xx
Comment: Wow what a wonderful swap! It's my 1st time swapping a journal page and I really really love what you did! Is the background made with a gel plate and distress inks, or similar inks?
It was lovely to read your little entry I can't believe how some men can be so pushy!!
Maybe we can private swap art journal pages or similar pieces of art when everything is better?
Response: I am very glad that you like it. And yes, that was an awful experience. Sure. I'd love to do a private swap when the situation will be more stable ;) I made the background with distress inks and watercolors. I decided that the delicate watercolor colors would match the Valentine theme ;)
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard and especially for the wonderful stamps you put on it!!! I always wanted a postcard from Poland. It made me really happy. Hope you and your son are well and stay healthy! <3 P.S. Adding a heart! Meant to give one originally and must have missed it by accident. :)
Response: Thank you for such a nice rating ;) I am very glad that you like the PC from me.
Comment: Thank you very much Agniezska! You now, you hit the nail right in the head — as I was just photographing Mute swans but few days ago! Also, I appreciate the special postage stamps you used. I wish you a pleasant holiday!
Comment: Thank you very much for the PC & your list of ways to relax. I too love to listen to music, read, & color( esp. coloring PC's). Oh how I wish I could take a nice long hot bath. I can't get in & out of the tub anymore. So showers only.
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful swap from one book lover to another. Of course my favourite is The Snow Queen postcard, which I think must only be used to put on my wall and enjoy instead of sending it to someone else. 😉
Comment: Very cute cat postcard!! I’m not really sure what to guess as the lie! I’m going to say “I want to move out of my current home” is the lie?!?! Thank you for joining - it was nice to see you again! : )
Response: Thank you for the rating! The first sentence - about the color of my eyes was a lie. They are blue. Thank you for hosting that swap. I will join #3 for sure!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! It's definitely going on my planned postcard wall :D Jamie Lannister is an interesting choice too. When I think about it, it would without a doubt be a cool person to hang out with. Especially the Jamie in the later seasons. I can only imagine the conversations! ^^
Comment: Thank you so much for an interesting read. :) I'll probably post the next round of creative writing swaps in March - February was a bit busy for me with letters. :) I'm glad to hear you liked the swaps, and I enjoyed reading what you wrote.
Comment: Thanks ever so much for your lovely book, showing me your Christmas. It was delightful to look at and to read how you spend your Christmas.I liked that you included a photo of yourself, maybe next time I'll be brave enough to put one of myself ;D I've just gone over the booklet again and must say I've really enjoyed reading about your Polish Christmas, really really delightful. x
Response: It was really fun swap. Thank you for hosting and for the lovely rating. I am happy that you like my booklet ;)
Comment: Hi! How awesome to get a PC from Poland! Thank you! My husband got me a subscription where they send you snacks from different countries every month, and this month is Poland. :) So far I've tried Monster Munch potato crisps and Tago Delice Meringues. Both are yummy! I can't wait to try the rest. :) Happy 2020!!
Response: Oh Gosh... I didn't know that Moster Munch are Polish brand. Ha ha. But I use to love them when I was a kid. Hope you'll enjoy Polish snacks ;) Thank you for the rating! Happy 2020 ;)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card with the reading girl. I really like it! I am tempted to read until late at night too. But I try not to do that, cause I become so cranky if I don't get enough sleep :)
Comment: I loved your envelope! Thanks for sending lovely histories! I took some photos of it, with a lil’ doodle about the lines i wrote. If you want to see, send a message and i’ll send the photos to you. I’m afraid that if i send the drawing with the story, it’ll get lost.
Response: Thank you for sharing your beautiful drawing! I can't wait to see how that story will develop... Thank you for the rating and I am glad you liked the envie.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and the sweet memory you shared with me. I enjoy creating handmade gifts for my friends and family, too. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a brilliant New Year!
Comment: Agnieszka thank you so much. I love the envie, the stamps and awesome penguin card. Thank you! I will spend Christmas with my brothers family Christmas Eve and then my husbands family on Christmas.
Comment: I love the card you sent. I’m really into spider-man myself and I stopped watching supernatural forever ago, but I will always love castiel. I also really want to try kiwi jam, that sounds interesting.
Response: Yes, Castiel is my favorite character as well ;) I actually start watching this show last year (from the season 1 of course). I can't wait to see the final. Thank you for the rating and I'm really glad that you like the card. I've found it in my stash and thought it will be the right one for you. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous card and all the effort you put into the envelope and writing a message inside. I am nearly ready for Christmas, like you I start preparing early. I love Christmas and for me its a joy picking out gifts for people. Hope you have an amazing Christmas and fabulous new year! xxx
Comment: I'm not sure if you're REALLY late or if it got lost, but I received your postcard today and loved the cards you picked for me. Thank you so much!
Response: To be honest, I can't remember exactly, but I'm sure I sent it on time, because I can't see any pm to you saying that I'm going to be late and I marked it as sent on April 3. That was before my short break in swaps. I am sorry that it arrived so late, but on the other hand - I am very glad that it has not been lost for good and that you like postcards from me. Is the date on the stamp legible?
Comment: Thank you so much for your pretty xmas greetings and stamp collection. Today is the 1...lol...cant wait to open the first door of my advent calender - yeah the big countdown is starting. And now have a wonderful Sunday
Response: Yup, can't believe it's already December ;) Thank you! Best wishes :)
Comment: The due date was August 16, and so far I haven't received an email from you. I sent you a private message, but it's still unread. Apparently you haven't been online since August 15. I hope nothing bad has happened? I will change my rating as soon as I get your answers.
Edit (September 3): All sorted out now. Thank you for your answers, and hope you are feeling better now <3
Response: Sorry. I've add a note and send you an explanation via PM. Email is sent. So sorry about that huge delay!
(Edited) Thank you for the rating ;)
Comment: Thank you for your answers and I am very sorry for the late rating .I love kittens and cats in general too Any kind of cats I have one named Fiona 💐Thank you also for these swaps I am looking forward to them
Comment: Thank you so much, my brother loved the card and the birthday wishes! And he said your name was really nice too!!! Thank you so much for sending such a lovely card to him! Have a magnificent day!
Comment: Thanks for answering the questions the best you could. I never realized how Un-international my questions could be. Not that you said, that, at all. I will give that more thought for future swaps. I am loving this swap idea, and the questions.
Response: Recently, I took part in a swap with some questions about Football. In Poland, this game is not popular at all, so I could not answer, for example, what is my favorite team. Soccer rules in Europe. Haha. But do not worry. Online stores that I mentioned also have an English version and send abroad ;) So if you would like to buy some beautiful postcards, I highly recommend them! Thanks for joining the fun!
Comment: Awww I love 💕 the kitty looking through the mail box in the door! How sweet. I’m glad you shared that with me. Thanks for sending. I’ll be passing along the traveling cards. It’s kind of funny that i just had that postcard you sent along with yours.
Comment: Thank you for all the beautiful purple items! Your envelope is gorgeous too! I love it! We have finally had nice hot weather, along with tornado warnings! I hope you have a great summer and that we swap soon!!! Thank you for everything!! XOXO
Comment: Hello Agnieszka! I received your swap today, thank you kindly. I have not read any of the books that you mentioned. You mentioned that you like Fantasy and Romance - I highly recommend "Wildwood Dancing" by Juliet Marillier! A very good Fantasy book with the addition of Romance :-) P.S. Love the beautiful stamps that you used on the envelope!
Response: Thank you very much for the lovely rating with the heart and also for that recommendation! I'm glad you like stamps ;) Best wishes!
Comment: Hi Agnieszka! This was SUCH a fun swap! Thank you for hosting it, and for your answers to my questions. I loved reading them, and getting to know you a little bit! I plan to email you back! Hugs, Julie
Comment: I have one orange Norwegian Forest Cat named Paxton, named after the actor Bill Paxton. And one fat gray tabby cat named Priya! My husband says he likes dogs more, but that he likes our cats the most! Thank you for the gorgeous PC, I especially like the stamps you chose and the little "cat mail Prioritaire" sticker!
Response: I'm glad you like it :) Thank you for the lovely rating + the heart. Best wishes for you, your husband, Paxton & Priya from me & my family (including furbabies)!
Comment: Lovely note cards! You are so creative! Thanks so much. The cards are too precious to use!
25/4 - Received another envelope from you! Thanks so much. It is okay...I don't mind the first one was without envelopes!! Thanks though! You made such awesome notecards....loved them! Happy spring!
Comment: Oh Agnieszka, you're such a wonderful swap partner! I love all that you've send me ❤️❤️ Beautiful cards, carefully wrapped to protect the corners andwith a lovely decorated envie with pretty stamps. Love getting mail from you ❤️❤️
Response: Aw! Thank you for such a lovely rating ;) I am glad you like postcards and decorated envie from me ;)
Comment: Hi Agnieszka! Thanks so much for the awesome variety of non-touristy pcs! When I went through my stash, I found I did not have many of those - each that you sent is so different - love it! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Yes, I tried to I choose the most varied postcards ;) I am glad you like them! Thank you for the heart ratting.
Comment: Thank you soo much for your lovely letter! <3 I'm happy to get to know you, please expect an answer from me soon! :) I'm a little bit busy nowadays as I'm writing my thesis, but I'll reply as soon as possible :)
Response: Yay! That will be great :) Thank you for the heart rating.
Comment: Hi hi! Thank you so much for your email! I love Holly Black too, she is spectacular! I actually haven't read The Darkest Part of The Forest yet but it's been on my TBR for ages! Did you find much difference in terms of translation from your native language to English? What other books have you read by Holly Black? Oh my gosh, have you read The Wicked King yet? Anyway, I hope you have a gloriously marvellous weekend :)
Response: Yes, I've read "The Wicked King" and "The Cruel Prince". Actually these 2 books were traslated. I' ve also read "Tithe", "Valiant" and "Ironside". "The Darkest Part of the Forest" takes place between these 3 novels and "The Cruel Prince". I highly recommend you all these 4 novels, if you haven't read them yet. Also her short stories are brilliant. Reading in the original language is obviously more difficult, but the difference is quite large. Some things translated into Polish lose their meaning. I guess I liked her books in the original more. I have many beautiful quotes from Holly Black written in my notebook. "You can break a thing, but you cannot always guide it afterward into the shape you want." Enjoy your weekend and thank you very much for the great rating!
Comment: Hi! Thank you for all your answers! I hope you can get to trying those creative swaps, I bet you'd be brilliant at them no matter about skill, determination is all you need ;) Have an awesome day!
Response: Thank you for the lovely rating :) Have an awesome day too!
Comment: Thanks, cute kitten. Three of my four grandparents were born in Poland and one in Prusy.
Response: Thank you for the nice rating! Prusy was actually very close to the place where I now live. My village is in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, near Gdańsk (city) and the Baltic Sea. That is so interesting!
Comment: Thank you for such a great selection! I am so excited to try all the fun treats!!!
Response: Yay! Thank you for the great rating. I really had fun putting everything together for you and I also receive some delicious sweets from Greece. That was really great swap! Hope you'll enjoy these stawberru snacks!
Comment: Hello Agnieszka, thank you so much for your wonderful swap. I loved to read about your swapbot experiences and I do agree with them! I love swapbot because I get to 'meet' like minded people, try out new techniques and be inspired by other peoples creativity! Thank you for the great extras too!
Comment: You've read a tremendous number of books in a short period of time! Wow! Your bedroom sounds lovely with the four shades of purple. I had a purple bedroom when I was growing up, but it was only one shade.
Comment: I love it! I gave jou a ❤, but you deserve more hearts just becous you put such lovely christmasstamps on the card. So i can 't give you more than one heart in the rating, but i can give you more hearts in this comment. ❤❤❤❤
Response: That's so sweet of you :) I am very glad you like stamps. Thank you for the great rating and all of these hearts ;)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Christmas card! I love how you decorated the envelope...thanks for taking to time to make the envelope and the stamps such a treat to see when I opened the mailbox. =)
Comment: Hi Agnieszka! Thank you so much for your beautiful Christmas card, I loved everything about it! The washi, the stamps, the little snowflakes, and your handwriting is stunning! Many well wishes for Christmas and 2019!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome card! Sorry for the late rate. I just found this today where it had slipped between the seats of hubby's truck. I'm going to have to search his truck more frequently from now on. LOL!
Comment: Thank you for very pretty cards and the extra! I just love the Priority sticker with Santa and his sleigh! Lovely postage stamps also. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas season. My daughter and I are going on a Disney Christmas themed cruise to the Bahamas next month!
Comment: Agnieszka, Nice to be swapping with you again! Thank you so much for the nice things you sent to me in this swap! I love the way you decorated the envelope, especially the penguins and the birds on the stamp. And that little sticker that said "Bird Mail Prioritaire" -- that was superb! Then I opened it and found so many bird stationery sets AND postcards! Plus stickers and that beautiful feather card! I feel very spoiled by such good treatment! Thank you very much for making this such a wonderful swap!!!
Comment: Sorry for the delay on rating. Thank you for the note cards received and Polish card. I do have a British friend of Polish descent, so card will come in handy. I'll see what he understands when sending the card.
Comment: Thank you =) Your lovely blue envelope had ripped open on two sides before reaching me! Nothing seems to be missing, but you probably should tape them up or something in the future.
Response: Sorry to hear that. I glued the envelope and tried to protect the content well. I think that glue might not be strong enough for such a wet weather, It seems that there is nothing as sure as a tape :) If you received 3 packages with gifts and a card/note from me - it is everything. Thank you for the rating :)
Comment: I love everything about this postcard! Even the stamps are gorgeous. I also really like your handwriting. Thank you so much!
Response: It always so nice to receive such a lovely rating like that one :) I am very happy that you like the postcard. I always try to put some heart into my swaps and I am glad that by doing so I can make someone happy ;)
Comment: Thank you very much for the super cat and dog postcards. I especially like the post box postcard and I thank you for choosing that as your plus one sender's choice. Great postage used to, ta :)
Response: You're welcome. I am very glad you like these postcards. Thank you for so lovely rating :)
Comment: I received the stamp book and it is ready for it's next journey. Thank you very much for the pretty stickers you included for me, and the stamps on the envelope are gorgeous too! Thank you so much <3
Response: I like to use pretty stamps. Thank you for the nice rating!
Comment: Thanks so much for this resend! I love dogs! They are so faithful! Thaks too for the pretty stamps and washi! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry UPDATE! I rec'd the original one, you sent, on November 1st! I love the flower and puppy stamps and the stickers are cute too! I used to have a German Shepherd named Woofer. He never barked. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: yaaasss, this magazine cover was such a perfect choice for me! This very NYM cover was still missing from my collection, a perfect addition. Also, extra thanks for the awesome stamps and the nice decoration! Wonderful!
Response: I am very glad you like it :) Thank you for the great rating.
Comment: Oh wow wow wow!!! What a fantastic swap! Just seeing the owl stamp was enough but oh the postcards are soooo nice and the seahorse card!!! I might frame it! Thank you so much for sending me such gorgeous cards, all my favorites. I am so grateful!!!!! XOXO
Response: I also think that seahorse card is beautiful :) Thank you very much for the nice rating!
Comment: Thank you for the something sweet postcard. I'm not sure if this is the re-send or the original one, but I did get one of them. :)
Response: Hello :) When I am sending re-send I always write it somewhere on the pc. Something like : "RESEND OF: WIYM - Something sweet...". If it isn't there, I think it's the original postcard. Anyway, thank you for the rating :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful dogs postcard - I love the washi decorations on it too! Nice postage stamps as well. This week is like summer still (yay!). It was sunny and 27C yesterday. Looks like we might get a little rain but it’ll be a warm week. I love summer, not so much fall or winter! Thank you again!!!! So glad you joined the swap! xoxo
Response: Thank you for the nice rating. I am very happy that you like that postcard.
Comment: Hi Agnieszka thank you for the beautiful mermaid PC, I love the decorations on the back. Autumn has come to my little island also. Oh! I just noticed the air mail for Poland features a mermaid !!! That is really cool. Yay Poland :) Take care peace love light
Response: Yes, a mermaid is on the emblem of our capital - Warsaw. The legend about how it was founded is about the mermaid.
I am happy that you like the postcard. Thank you for the great rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the PC's. I especially like the one with the cupcake on top of a Volkswagen Beetle. I know jut who I'm going to give it to. The big eyed cat and dog stickers are hilarious and I appreciate the cat bookmark. Great swap, thank you very much!

Comment: Your card finally arrived to me!! Thank you so much for all the extra goodies! I especially love the llama stickers. 😊 ❤️❤️❤️
Response: Wow. I have no idea why it took so long. Maby summer is a more busy time for postal services here, in Poland. Current swaps arrive much faster! I am glad you were so patient and you like what I've sent. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Hey Agnieszka! Thanks SO MUCH for the great postcards! But most of all I LOVED the envelope!! Very cool! Can we do a private swap sometime? I would love to get my own stationary like that! :-) Cheers, Theresa

Original: Thank you for resending. I love everything you sent! Maybe you might send priority every time? It didn’t seem to take very long to get here. I still haven’t received the original swap you sent. I’ll let you know if I ever do. Thank you!
Response: I think I will do that if I will get you as a partner next time :) The difference turned out to be huge! Maby it was some busy time for postal services when I sent the original swap and that caused the delay. Who knows... Let's hope the original swap didn't get lost. It has happend to me before that swaps were in travel for 3-4 moths! Our postal services are very unpredictable. Glad it arrived and you like it. Thanks for the re-rating.
Comment: Good communication, honest swapper, and quick to reply. 13/11 - Thank you for the resend! I loved it. Found it amongst a bunch of mail that was collected but I wasn't notified about and I'm so glad that it arrived. Thanks again!
Response: Oh, I am very glad you've received the re-send :) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the fun and cheery stickered postcard. I like the owls and kittens, but my favorite sticker was the tiny lime green giraffe.
Response: Yes, these little giraffe stickers are one of my favorite too. They look so cute. Thank you for the sweet rating ant the heart. I am glad that you like the postcard. Creating it was very fun.
Comment: Wonderful postcards! I love them. 8/22/18 got your resend! So, 2.5 months for the first send, less than 10 days for the resend!! I wonder where the first ones went? Thanks very much - consider this two hearts for you!
Response: Ha ha ha. That was a day after I re-send this ;) Tricky mailing system. You can never know when the swap got lost and when it is still on the way. Thanks for the rating and the heart. Hope you'll like the re-send too ;)
Comment: Thanks for the book and the extras ! I almost forgot about this because it took two months to come, but I'm not giving you a lower rating because of the post office delay. Let me know if you want to swap again soon !

Comment: Hi Agnieszka! Good things come to those who wait :) Some extra travel time adds to the mystery and excitement when a card
arrives from a far away land. We love your card of a yellow VW Beetle. Your washi tape of vintage bicycles is a perfect choice. How grateful we are for your lovely card. Jealous that you have spring while we winter. Regards Raoul & Jeanette.
Response: Wow :) It's been a long trip for that PC! It's actually summer already in Poland :) Thank you very much for the amazing rating and the heart.
Comment: Hey Agnieszka,
Sorry about your rating. I completely missed out on your comment on my profile. I'm really sorry about the rating and if it has caused you any trouble. And thank you for the awesome quote. Have a great day.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. Don't worry. It's fine. I forgot that you didn't rate me ;)
Comment: Hi Agnieszka, thank you so much for the sweet PC, babies :) There are many places to see the ducks and Canada geese where I live so I get to see the babies also...the Owl postage stamps are strikingly beautiful! Happy Summer Solstice peace love light
Comment: Your wonderful package arrived today. Thank you for everything. The stickers are so pretty! Summer has finally arrived to Maine. I wanted to ask how your bbq was, but the date on the card is April 18th so you probably don’t remember!
Response: I am glad you like the swap. Thanks for the rating and a heart. I sent you a re-send of this few days ago, but since the date on the card was April 18th, it must be the original swap :)

I am very glad that you like it and that I helped you to learn something new :) Thank you for the nice comment.
Comment: Thank you for your nice envelope & goodies. The address labels are absolute gorgeous. And all the other things you picked for me are perfect. I liked reading the story about Warszawa, did not know this. Great swap.

Comment: Lovely postcard with stork and beautiful owl stamps made it extra for me. Thank you.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I am very glad that you like the postcard. Storks are in Poland a sign of the arrival of spring. This year they have already arrived, so the winter is over :)
Comment: Thanks for sending the PCs for this round and the extra one with the piano.
I was amazed why it takes so long to go from Poland to the Netherlands.....
I'm delighted to send it to its next destination!
Comment: Woah, thank you for the awesome swap! I loved everything about it. From the beautiful coloured envelope to the pretty stamps and the awesome postcard included which are all exactly what I love. I would give a million hearts if I could. Thank you so much. Also for the extra pin up card. A new one for my collection <3 LOVE!
Comment: Thank you for the neat card received. I don't now why it too 6 weeks to get here. Mail was slow a month ago. I had a negative attitude when I was single. Hubby lost candy he got me. I had to follow up until I finally got a box of chocolates. Either you don't get something, then upset. Or you think you got something, and it's a challenge. Enjoy Easter/Spring season.
Comment: What an inspiring board of ideas for Easter! I especially liked the Easter basket blessing. Reminded me of a friend who is Polish who posted photos of the Easter Basket Blessing at her church. I had never seen anything like it until her photos. Such a lovely idea.
Comment: I give you a heart for the follow up you did on this swap . That shows your passion. Keep up the good work. Happy swapping.
Response: Sorry that you didn'r recive it., it's already resent (Feb 24). The original email obviously got lost or it's in your spam folder. My other partners rated me for the very same email long time ago. (March 06) Thank for the rating. I am very happy that we finally managed to get along.
Comment: March 24th ~ The resend that you mailed in January showed up in my mail box today! Thank you for the adorable hedgehog PC. It is crazy how long it takes for some things to get from point A to point B. Thank you so much for doing a resend. Now we know for the next time we swap...we need to allow 3 months! All the best to you.
I received your postcard!!! I'm not sure which one has found it's way to me, it is the one with a train and a quote from W. Moers. I love it. Thank you. You have such beautiful handwriting too! All the best to you.
Response: That's the original one. Wait for the second pc ;) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I am so grateful your swap finally arrived and it was worth waiting for! Thank you again Agnieszka for the kitty stickers and the two tea bags you included. I have not had the flavors of the two teas that you included in your swap. It took not quite 10 weeks to arrive from your town to my town. Good to know! No problems with getting lost just slow! Thank you for letting me know! Have a great new year!
Comment: Agmieszka, today I received the swap card/bookmarks that you sent and I love them! What a clever idea! I will be happy to be able to include these in swaps and may make some of these special bookmarks to use as swap cards myself. I loved the butterfly print and that you put my swap name on the back side of them! Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Yay! I knew it would arrive eventually :) And very nice it is too! We love it! Thanks.
***A second card for this swap [resend ] arrived 1/5/18 - A moggy landing on all fours! A great card thanks very much. We really appreciate your enthusiasm!
Comment: Yeah, The postal service decided to send me your card!!!, Its metered on 11/21/17, They must have thought it was as pretty as I do and wanted to keep it!!!!.... Thank you very much and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!!!
Comment: Hello Agnieszka!! I'm really sorry for rating you so late, once I began school again, everything else just flew out of my mind. Thank you very much for your responses to the questions! I enjoyed reading through them, through your interests, and also reading about some of your goals for this year. I hope you reach those goals and that this year will be a blessing to you and your family! Happy swapping! :)
Comment: Received your beautiful Christmas card today (January 15, 2018), 26 days which is pretty impressive! I love your card, I love the embellishments that you put in it, so pretty.
We are having the same strange weather, one day itâ€™s -30 C and the next day itâ€™s + 3 C. We did get snow for Christmas which was nice.
Itâ€™s an interesting meal tradition that you have,
and it makes sense to try 12 things to cover 12 months. I also have to thank you for the umbrellaâ€™s and the beautiful postage stamp.
I really enjoyed everything and I thank you so much for making my day extra special. The best to you and your family in 2018. ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›ðŸ§¡ðŸ’œ
Comment: Thank you for sharing in this swap with me. I am new here and it is nice to get to know a fellow craft friend. I would love to hear all about your projects and hope to do many more swaps with you. Please don't forget to give me a rating.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your Year with me. I'm very glad you are finding time to be yourself, discovering who you are whilst single, I also was a single mum at your age and it really helped me change for the better. Your home renovations must have kept you very busy! Also great choice in music ðŸŽ¶Happy New Year to you ðŸ’–
Comment: I agree with not going back to a store that gives me a bad product or service. It's ok to me. I like the stamps it's pretty. The little kitties are adorable. I had a friend with the name Agnieszka. She returned to Poland a few years ago. Happy New Year with things better than last year.
Comment: Thanks! I had no idea it was a day of fasting in some cultures! I suppose it makes sense actually when you think about what it has become for other cultures - more about ourselves. Thanks for that!
