Comment: Thank you for the birthday card and graduation card, it was very sweet of you to send me two cards! I admit that I was a little confused because this wasn't quite the swap, as we were suppose to write a 2 page letter. lol anyways, I'm not picky! Thanks. Also, Happy birthday to you! :)
Update: I will be on the lookout for it :) thank you for letting me know!
6/8 update! I received the swap letter! :) Thank you!
Response: I thought after I sealed the cards I should have said 1 of 3 or 2 of 3 and said letter will be #3 or something. Hope the letter made it as well.
Comment: Thank you for your swap. I loved the purple envelope. It was all beat up and several missing pieces were out of it.The contents seemed together but the poor envelope. Thank you for all your sheets!! You went above and beyond as the swap was only for 10 sheets and you sent 37!!! Thank you for joining my swap!
Response: Sad that the envie was beat up, glad I generally put more in than the swap calls for :)
Comment: Hi Jodie, thanks for the great letter! I plan to write back soon; I love the idea of pen pals, it is a fun way to communicate and make new friends! I look forward to our continued correspondence.
Comment: Thanks a lot for your letter :) I'm going to write a reply for you soon! :) I'm a little bit busy as I'm writing my thesis and I need to submit it by 2nd May. Therefore I might be able to write to you only afterwards.

Comment: Thanks for the pretty card and the sparkle shapes inside. I went to Alex Tech in the early 1970's and remember there were some guy from Renville in the police training program-can't remember his name(maybe Steve) but that's the way it goes when you get older!!!

Response: I am glad you joined. I had a BJ themed swap 3 yrs back there was 4 people in it.

I don't penpal anymore, but I'm open to swapping postcards. I'm also an admin for a postcard group on here on also on FB if you're interested in joining. :)
Response: Grrr hat is the 2nd envie of cards in the past month to arrive open. I better start the tape around the edges again. I think that was everything.
Comment: Hi, I just recevied your Washi tape, and to my great suprise you included a letter. You made my day thank you so much. Will write you any time soon :) And love the Washi tape you have send me.
Response: Wow that was fast! I love having a few international pen pals so I try to send intro letters out every so often I look forward to hearing back from you.
Comment: Thank you for the cards Jodie - I think the Fairlawn Mansion is gorgeous and I love the Amnicon and Manitou Falls card! Thank you for making my mailbox happy - I hope you too are having a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the great postcards and letter. The first lighthouse we ever got to go in and see was split rock. We loved it so much we now collect anything on lighthouses. The postcards from your area are all new.
Comment: hey jodie, dont mind about a little bit late. i havent recognized it cause post to germany takes sometimes longer. but thank you sooo much for that many 'apologize'cards. they are all so beautiful.
Comment: Thank you for the great letter! Love the paper you used. You are the first person who actually sent me a tuna recipe! ( can't wait to try the bread pudding recipe either.) I'll write back and you can see if you think we're a pen pal match. No pressure, though. Nice to meet you!
Response: I love those recipe mags, if I don't think I will try something I love passing those extra cards around.
Comment: Hello Joie,
Thank you for the notecards you sent me for this swap. It was a neat idea that you went by the color of the envelopes. These will be a nice addition to my Notecard Collection.
I collect diddl like you. For years I could buy it at Toys r us . When they decided to not sell it l
Any longer, I bought all they had. Have some nice stationary. Thanks for adding to my collection! Loved all u sent!
Comment: Hey girl! Thanks sooo much for my b-day card and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the extra gift!! ITS SOOO ME!! I am going to actually "paint" it on canvas!! Hope you had a great birthday!! Please keep in touch!! You are special to me!! Your friend...el
Comment: Hi Jodie - Thank you very much for your note and generous swap. The cards are really nice and MN looks beautiful. Hope to make it there for a proper visit one day. Have a great week and thanks again. (yes, this time the swap arrived!) :)
Response: They made it already? Wow! I feel vindicated now. I was timely in sending and didn't have to resend.
If you plan a visit message me when plans are made and maybe we can plan a meeting or something.
Comment: Hey there Jodie, I loved your letter! Sadly it's typed (I prefer handwritten), but the inside made it up (:! Would you like me to handwrite the letter or typed? By the way, do you have a cat or cats? .. When I got your letter, I got an allergic reaction.. :( I'll write back asap. XO
Response: Oh no I have dogs :-( I dont type alot only when I am behind and I have comp time.
Comment: I'm rating a '5' because I received postcards. However, my profile clearly states that I DO NOT LIKE touristy cards. That's all you sent. The swap instructions say it is "sender's choice but have a look through your partner's profile for likes/dislikes." Clearly you didn't. Not much thought put into what you sent.
Comment: I noticed this was sent well after the deadline, but there wasn't any communication. Will re-rate upon receiving swap.
6/12 - In response to your note, I did not receive any messages from you.
7/3 - Received your envie today and am re-rating. Thank you for your message and the nice cards. I hope things get sorted out at your local PO. Cheers.
Response: I sent messages when I noticed they didn't make it into the mail.
Comment: I had to contact you a few days after the last day to send as you hadn't clicked "sent". You sent on 6/4, a week late. Your envelope arrived damaged and open on three sides, with only your note inside. That I know is not your fault. I am rating a three for sending late without any communication. I hope you understand. Thank you for sending.
6/12 - you did not contact me until I sent you a PM about the swap not being marked as sent and not received. Your swap was postmarked June 5, and that was your "resend" which you marked sent on June 4. Your message in response to mine was that you thought you sent the swaps - but that you realized you didn't. You said you were adding extras and mailing right away. It's not the PO that "left behind" your swaps. At any rate, thank you again for sending. * I appreciate the second resend - it was nice of you to send it even though the original envelope I received was damaged by the USPS! : )
Response: I sent messages when I noticed they didn't make it into the mail. I am sorry for the damage.
Comment: I got my stuff, and thank you, but it was very late with no notice :( So sorry for the 3
UPDATE 6/13/13: I double checked the letter you sent, and the date you put on the letter was the 23rd of May, you marked it sent on the 26th, then the post mark is for 5/29, I did not receive it until the 5th of June. I am sorry, but the rating does fit. I totally loved the letter and the postcards inside, and it would have been a 5 if sent earlier. So sorry :(
Response: Are you sure I was positive it went out prior to the 20th.
Comment: THANK YOU MY FRIEND!!!I LOVED THE CARD!! I really like the business card with the photo of the woman on it! It totally is empowering and reminds me of me!! We have to talk!! Hope your birthday was awesome!!! Keep in touch..I really really appreciate you and sooo glad that we are friends!! Love & Peace.... el
Comment: Hi-neighbor-thanks for the greetings-I knew some people from Renville when I went to school at Alec Tec years ago-so don't remember names-they were guys in the cop class at the tech! Happy holidays
Response: I don't imagine they are any of the few cops Renville has though. Small world though.
Comment: Holy goodness!!! I love it all! The eeyore one is so cute! I have a wall in my room with cute swaps on it! Im about to write myself a note and stick it up there as I dont think i could send this piece away! LOL
Comment: Thanks for the postcard of the "Corn Capital of the World!" It is a great postcard. Please remember to add the name of the swap somewhere ... it makes them so much easier to find for rating! Also the mailing deadline was December 20th for this swap. You clicked "sent" on December 27th and the postcard has a postmark of December 29th. The send by date is important!
Comment: Hi Jodie! Thankyou so much for the card! I am hanging it up right now! (Just next time, if you could put the name of the swap you are sending somewhere on the envie or card, it would alot easier to rate you!) xox
