Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely envelope!! December will be so much fun :) :) Have a lovely evening :) Edit: Such a delightful bundle stickers and Totoro postcard. thank you so very much!!!!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard, good thoughts and prayers. We did have a small forest fire near us, but luckily they got control of it quickly. The most I've really had to worry about is the smoke that has blown in from eastern Washington and California because of my asthma.
Comment: This finally arrived today! I'm so glad it's here, thank you for the lovely letter and stickers (love them). I hope you were able to do everything, especially your birthday-related activities. Mine was in March and my plans were heavily affected by the pandemic. Take care!
Comment: Thanks for the Owl and mountains! Reminds me of my trip to Alaska last year. No travels this year, though. I can't get watercolor markers to work either, but I love watercolor pencils! Congrats on your 2nd Anniversary! If you make it through the pandemic, you'll be good forever, I'm sure!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I miss living close to the ocean as I did for most of my life. Now the nearest bodies of water are sweet water -- 3 miles from the Mississippi River and 150 miles from Lake Superior.
Comment: I had a hard time figuring out what swap your PC was for! Lol! Please remember to include the swap name and your swap-bot name. I agree with you in that my husband and I prefer to pick up our meal and eat at home. It's more relaxing that way!
Response: I am so sorry that i forgot to include the swap info on the card. I Normally do put all that info on my cards or envelopes. Definitely more relaxing to enjoy take out at home!
Comment: Hi Heather thank you for the My neighbor Totoro postcard. I have been busying myself with yard work..planning a garden, planting some trees... time to show the outside of the house some love. be safe be loved be healthy
Comment: Well this took quiet a long time to arrive, but I'm really glad that it has arrived. Thank you for all the teas that you've sent me. I can't wait to try them all. Also, thank you for the letter you wrote. I really enjoyed reading it. I will send you a reply as soon as it is possible for me. In the mean time, I hope you are staying safe and healthy. Warm regards from Indonesia <3
Comment: Thank you for the note card ☺ I'm glad you're doing well. I have said for years that I'm a house cat, so I'm perfectly content staying home, too. Ha. Have fun replying to your letters. I have a few to reply to as well. Take care!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter, Heather ♡ It really cheered me up :) I'm putting everything on a big pile of love so I get to answer all of you when this quarantine is over. Thank u for all the goodies!
Comment: Apologies for the delay on rating! I was social distancing from my P.O. Box :) Thank you for the lovely postcard! Things are okay in Seattle, just a bit on lockdown but we are safe and healthy and thankful to be working from home!
Comment: Thanks for your letter. I did not join this swap to fiind penpals, but I don't mind answering questions so I will write a PM in a few minutes. I have two other swap-bot acquaintances who live in Vancouver---but I know it's a big city and you aren't likely to know one another. Your home sounds like it's beautifully situated near the ocean.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter. I placed it upon my "to answer" pile. Because I will be so busy I am not sure when that will be, but I WILL write back. Have a great week, and again thanks for writing.
Comment: Hi, Heather! Received your wonderful letter and have read it twice! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it! And I am thrilled to have received one of the elusive Ferry postcards! I will write you back as soon as my schedule unjams! Thanks a ton!
Comment: Thank you for your letter! I enjoyed getting to know you! You are my partner in the Canadian version of this swap so I will be sending you my answer via that swap. :-)
Response: Sounds great!!! I like it when doubles up work time wise like that as i have several letters going with a few people as i keep getting matched with them before i receive a letter back or vice versa
Comment: Hi Heather! Thank you very much for the beautiful items. All great choices but I especially liked the decorative paper - something I do not see here!! That is my first Totoro card ever too! Great swap!
Comment: Oh Heather what a beautiful set of stamped stationery you put together for me. Thankyou so much and for thinking of my favourite colour to use I love it the bookmarks are stunning I am using one in my journal and the other in my junk journal. I'll definitely be using the one of the letter sets to write a letter to a friend this week ☺️.
Definitely deserve 100++ and many many hearts ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed my package!! I am still very new to stamping so I sometimes worry that my stuff isnt good enough to send out in a swap. So bearing that the recipient loves what i sent is always great
Comment: And we meet again. Thank you for the assortment of stamped images you included for me. Of the entire lot I'd have to admit I sat admiring the scenic house with meadows and the birds silhouette. ❤️ Besides, I recognised it was you from your handwriting and the envie. 😉
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the inages. Are my envelopes that distinctive?
Comment: Thanks for making me a cute penguin postcard. The little stars are a nice touch. We got a snow dump 2 weekends ago. That is one relatively good thing about being sick during a snow storm, you can stay inside and not tackle the snow. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
Response: I am so glad you like my stamped postcard and the added start stickers. I am new to stamping so I suffer from impostor syndrome when I go to mail them. Yes I was very grateful to not have to deal with the snow.
Comment: i got it & somehow knew I would soon. Just that postal system is darn slow! Thank you very much the Holiday greeting upcycled PC! It is very lovely! Like you, We have had our fair share of snow here in Canton,PA. It has been snowing on & off for the past 4 days, ugh! I'm so tired of it already & winter isn't even half way over. heck, We have winter through until the 2nd or 3rd week of April & never have an actual Spring. We just jump right into summer weather in 2nd week of May. What a joke about Global warming! Not here it isn't, lol !
Response: Tell me about the mail system. I had a letter from Hawaii to Vancouver take 7 weeks!! and a postcard from england took exactly 2 months. And I may still be missing a few things from the beginning of Decemeber. Luckily that is probably the only snow we will see this year and we do get Spring but it is normally really just Rain
Comment: Thank you for your answers, and that you took time to write them by hand. They were interesting to read. I will write you back.. soonish :)
Response: Thanks I felt really bad on the first round of questions as I left it too late and couldn't had write 6 copies so I had to send 5 photocopies. I learned from that and started early and wrote one a night until all 6 were done! As I much prefer receiving hand written correspondence.
Comment: Sorry for the late rating. I just opened it. My roommate had guests while I was out of town and I just found 3 Christmas gifts and a pile of cards! Feels like Christmas again! Loved hearing about your shopping excursions! Sounds like you had some special times!
Comment: Thank you for your card & note! I hope that you were able to get your bag order finished & are now enjoying your Christmas time! No, no white Christmas for us down here! lol! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas & a wonderful New Year!
Response: Yes I did get my bag ordered finished and while I am not off work until after Friday of this week I am enjoying having the time to enjoy the holiday ambiance and work on my swaps and pen palling
Comment: Heather, thank you so much for the letter and the well wishes. You're right, the break from classes was much needed!
I love how you bordered your paper on one side with washi tape. It looks really cute and festive, totally stealing that idea :)
I also love corny Christmas movies. If you haven't seen it yet and you have Disney
Plus, I recommend "Noelle". I really enjoyed reading about how and why you discovered Swap-Bot.
Merry Christmas and enjoy your week off!
Response: I am glad you enjoyed my letter. towards the end I wasn't sure if I had prattled on too much. I do not have Disney Plus but I had heard of Noelle and saw a trailer or something and was intrigued.
Comment: I just loved your card of gratitude! I too am blessed with a wonderful husband and pets! Makes life a little bit more brighter! I would love to be your penpal!! I will write you today! You seem so friendly and I think would make a great penpal if you don't mind me venting about work!!LOL or my fibromyalgia!
Response: I wish we could have pets, but we rent and Vancouver in not very pet and rental friendly! I do not mind you venting about work or fibromyalgia, i used to have a job that was very vent worthy so I understand the need, and also the desire to spare your husband a bit and not only vent to them. I am looking forward to your letter.
Comment: thank you for the cute cactus card and stickers. I did not know that you can watch a log fire on YouTube. I got to check that out. another great place to use your stationery is sendsomething.net
Response: Thank you for that suggestion, I will have to check it out! I discovered the log fire on You tube last year and love it.
