Comment: Thanks Tamara! This is one of my favorite postcard sets! I actually have one of the cookbooks in the illustration. :)
I'd love to be penpals with you! Thanks for putting your address on the postcard. I'll send you one ASAP!
Response: Thank you so much for the heart rating! I received your other postcard too. I LOVE it! I will be writing you back really soon.
Comment: Thank you for the cute card and note. That set is one of my favorites. I bought them a while back and I always love it when I receive one naked like this then I don't feel so bad for sending them out.
Response: You are so welcome! I love that set too! Thanks for the heart rating!
Comment: Thank you for making a replacement Catbook! I probably should have checked to see who your partner was before I told you to send it, since I wouldn’t have made you go out of your way on my account. The effort really is appreciated, though!
Response: You are very welcome and thank you for the heart! It was my pleasure to make another one... I can't wait to see what everyone adds.
Comment: Hi Tamara,
I am sorry to be so late in rating your swap. I'm not being lazy, but have been really sick for the last month. This long illness ended with me in the ER twice and 1 Urgent Care in 5 days. My visit to Urgent Care got me in an ambulance and in the hospital after more evaluation in the ER. They are still unclear about what caused my whole body to tailspin and I could have had seizures or even passed away. This has been scary!
So, I want to say Thank You for your generosity and kindness over this last month. Thank You for your caring swap and for a GREAT swap. Happy Swapping until we meet again.

Response: Oh my Barbara! I do pray you are doing better now? You are very welcome for the swap and I hope to swap with you again in the future. Take care
Comment: Thank you for the Virginia card. I tend to send those away and was out. I have no Charlottesville cards at all, I had a bunch from some anniversary, but I mailed them away. Not to leave them out, I enjoyed all the cards you sent.
Comment: Wow! You made this just for me! I feel special! That is the sign of a special swap! You made my day! Thanks for coming out to play swap. I hope you are inspired to make more! Thank you!
Response: Oh I am so glad you liked it! I am definitely going to try and make more. I think I am going to find some Roller Derby to watch now though... while creating the book I found it be so interesting! Thank you very the heart rating!
Comment: Thank you for taking the time to prepare your recipe book. Your book gave me an idea of how to make mine better when it returns to me. Now to put recipes in it and send it to the next partner.
Response: This swap is so fun and I can't wait to see what kind of recipes I get back in mine.
Comment: Oh my goodness!! What a great swap!! Thank you for the postcards, notecard and the ginormous paperclips! But most of all thank you so much for the Fab Five Key!! It's two of my favorite things (Disney and Keys) in one!! I love it, I put my keys on it straight away. Thank you so much for the thoughtful Swap.
Response: You are welcome. I am so glad you liked all the items. This swap is so much fun!
Comment: Thank you for the card! In Connecticut, it's raining all weekend, it's awesome! On Thursday the fire risk was high, so better to pour all weekend and keep the fire starters inside. :-) I hope you're doing well and staying safe!
Response: Thank you for the heart! Please stay safe!
Comment: Hi Tamara I loved reading about your pets. I love Marigold and Ginger's names And Libby is a cute name too My friend has a cat named Gingerbread!! I had a cat named Mistletoes AKA Missy Toes , we got her at Christmas time and she had large feet. LOL
Response: Oh those are such cute names too. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for signing up, fun swap for sure. I love reading stories of everyones pets. I think pets stick around for us, I love that your sweet pup still snuggles you, I believe we can sense our pets from Heaven too.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome "red" journal page! I especially love getting a first zine from someone, thank you for that It turned out fine and the only thing I want to tell you is unless the swap says so you don't need to send the original, just make a copy.
Response: Thank you for the heart! and thank you for the advise too :) Yeah, I wished I had saved a copy of it myself just because it was my first.
Comment: Hi and thank you very much for the polar bear PC! So cute! You asked me, if I have heard of Tunisian crochet? I sure have and know how to do it. I've been crocheting for 48 years now & love it so much! Esp. Amigurumi crochet.
Comment: Megan is a great name!!! My daughter's name is Mary and people always confuse our names. I think it's because Mary is generally an older person's name so they just assume the older one of us is Mary, haha.
Comment: Your page is so beautiful. My swaps are always so plain; I really appreciate your page!
Response: Aww. Thank you for the compliment. I feel I have a long way to go sometimes with my creativity. Some of the swaps I have received have been museum-worthy.... LOL! Honestly, sometimes plain and simple is elegant.
Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous postcard! I'd love to be pen pals, but I'm so behind on my replies at the moment. If you don't mind writing first, let me know and I can DM you my address. I'd love to chat with another Twin Peaks fan! :)
Response: Awesome! I will be in touch in the near future.
Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: Thank you It's perfect l love how you made your page. And thank you so much for the ink stamps too. Yes It would be my favorite month too if my daughter was born in it but l just have a couple of family members born in this month so yes it is a great month. Take care and stay safe
Comment: Thank you so much, Tamara! I got your postcards yesterday, on my birthday! It made them even more special to receive! I hope you received some nice ones, too, that helped you grow your collection. I particularly love the USA map postcard!
Comment: That Ikea manual looked like a nightmare! 😂 I went through something similar recently constructing a shed for our side by side. I almost hired someone to do it for me because it was very confusing 😅 Oh well, it feels good to say that we've built something ourselves 😉
Response: I am not really good assembling things but when I was single it would take me DAYS to assemble the shelves. thank you for the rating and the <3
Comment: Thanks for sending me two journal pages . I love both of them. I think it is wonderful your daughter is able to help you. Thank her from me. Thanks for the extras and stay safe and well. elflady
Comment: Thanks very much for all the items! I especially loved the playing cards....and I have never had a tracked envelope from the US before. I hope it did not cost excessively for you to send it that way!♥️
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely April swap. It is so pretty and I love all the techniques you used. It was interesting that I used the April showers brings May flowers theme on the one I did for my partner also.
Comment: I am enjoying the mixed media piece you made, I have it right behind my coffee pot so I see it every morning. I am rating a 3 because you sent late, 6 days late and you did not contact me until 5 days after the mailing deadline. I realize "life happens" and throws wrenches in our plans but not planning ahead when you knowingly have a exams is not a viable excuse. If you know you will be busy don't join swaps! I say with this kindness and from experience as I am a teacher and have months, like April, when I have to really limit how many and what kind of swaps I can handle with all the stress that comes with that month.
Response: I am glad you like what I made for you, and thank you for advice. I have returned to college after so many years and forgot how time-consuming taking exams are. I apologize again.
Comment: I am rating a 3 on this swap due to it being over 3 weeks late. It was due to be sent out by March 22 yet postmark is April 10th and just received it 2 days ago. Great atc but next time if you will be late at least contact your partner letting them know
Response: I am quite baffled at this as I DID INDEED send this out on time. Due to it being first class mail i have no way to check on this but if you check my other swaps lately I have sent them on time and I do send notes to the partner and the coordinator if I am late. I am very sorry this did not get to you on time. Again, I am completely baffled at this.
Comment: I'm really enjoying this package ~ thanks so much! I love the gorgeous iridescent clips, the butterflies and ribbons. The notebook and cup will be put to good use. Its great to have a pretty container for my water and will help me remember to drink it more often. Thanks for always being such a good swapper.!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the lovely unicorn items! I especially love the coloring book. And thank you again for being so understanding and getting back to me promptly. You are a great swapper and a joy to partner with ❤️
Comment: Hi! It was fun learning a little about you. I loved the first Mama Mia and haven't seen the newest one. Matlock has a special place in my heart because I used to pick my daughter up from work at 2:00 am in the morning and by the time we got home Matlock was on so we would watch it together in the quiet house with everyone else asleep. I too think it would be cool to sit in on a criminal trial. Does that make us weird? :) Have a great Christmas!
Comment: I have now reveived this. Thank you for resending.
I contacted you regarding this, and you stated on the 14th you would send right away. It is now the 28th (14 days later) and I have not received the swap.
I will change the rating if I receive your swap by Halloween.
Response: Oh my goodness... I do apologize and I assure you that I mailed this. It has been over a week so if you did not get by now it should be there no later than tomorrow. Through no fault of my own this is the second I made due to our city having issues with our mail service.
Comment: This should be a 3 rating, not a heart with 5.
Mail by date was SEPT 21, It was marked mailed SEPT 24th. The date mailed on the printed out mailing label was OCT 10. No contact/ no communication. I do now see your explanation in your profile, but I just can't make sense of how this relates to your mailing dates on the package.
The contents, of the swap were very adequate.
Response: Thanks but as stated on my profile my town had an issue with mail not being picked up. This was mailed on the 24th but apparently the post office did not stamp their date of process until Oct 10th. This issue along with others were reported to the postmaster. I admit the delay of a couple days but i am sorry but the other delay was out of my control.
Comment: What an adorable postcard. You have beautiful handwriting. I want to adopt some of your letters to my alphabet like your lower case f and Wow your uppercase T is fab. Great postage and enjoyed your note.
Comment: Tamara, my apologies for rating so late on this! I thought I had already rated it and put it in my 'completed' pile, but on going through, I saw that I hadn't submitted the info. I did receive it and loved the way you did the swap! From the colorful pocket with the cut-out designs on it, to the great things you included, I loved it all! I especially liked the card with all the words and images on it; I might have to make a plaque like the TeaTime Coffee logo to hang over my coffee counter! Thanks so much for a great swap and also for your patience! Happy swapping to you!
Comment: OMG! That box is gorgeous. Love the extra goodies too! I'm amazed that there was only a small hole in the box after to PO got through with it! All came in great condition because of all the bubble wrap! Thank you so much Tamara for joining in the Swap--Party of Two!
Comment: Oh-it's beautiful-I love the colors and design. In fact I have those colors in my bedroom so after this ornament spends December on my Christmas tree-it will be displayed in my bedroom. Thanks-and Happy Holidays
Comment: Hello! Let me guess - you have dogs (rescue ones?) We have one ourselves, and we love him dearly. You are a cofee and tea drinker too. I love receiving and going thru magpie journals. Thanks for yours!
Response: I am not sure why I received a rating of 1 on this swap now in November when this swap was earlier in the year and I have confirmation that the package was delivered. Please explain. Thank you. UPDATE: Thank you @zebragirlzebra I hope you are have a wonderful holiday season! :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute items! Num-noms are something the girls and I adore. Everything was the colors that I enjoy also. What a fun package! I did not find any note so I had to guess which swap it was. At any rate, thanks so much! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the nice selection of teas. The recipes will be great for summer. I really enjoyed this swap. Thank you for joining. It got here in the 2nd to the last day of Ramadan but still Ramadan nonetheless. Have a great weekend. We will celebrate our Eid this weekend. Happy swapping.
Comment: I love the moose! This bag is the perfect size for holding some good groceries. Thank you!! The magazine/newspaper were handy reading material too. I am happy you took part in my swap, maybe I'll do another sometime. =)
Comment: One heart for the journal, a second heart, if I could give it, for re-doing it when the first book never showed up! Thank you so much!
Response: Thank you so much <3 I am still holding hope that the original will show up either with you or back to me just so you could enjoy 2 journals :) Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. The one plus with re-doing it... I got to add some elephant pictures for you!! LOL :)
Comment: I'm sorry for the 3 rating. I have only had to ever rate a 3 one other time, and it's a horrible feeling. This was really late, without any contact from you. Sorry! Thanks for following thru and for the package. Merry Christmas.
Response: I totally understand. I did communicate with the host of the swap about the troubles I was having but I apologize for not communicating with you directly. Have a Merry Christmas too ;)
Comment: Wonderful box, I was so much fun going through everything. I really love Pop Rocks. Did you really send it from Manassas Park? You could have driven it over faster and easier. Lol. Happy Halloween
Response: Yeah, I actually thought about that!! Hello neighbor :)
