Comment: Hi Natasha! I just received your swap today and TYVM for the New Zealand Fur Seal. I really love this and he/she is so dang cute! I have a great love for Seals ! Esp. after seeing them twice in real life. I wish I was where you lived and could see them like you do. I sort envy you, Lol ! But I can why you steer clear of them. I imagine they are very protective of their colony. Well, I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas !
Comment: Thank you! I loved all the stickers and it was fun to see some stickers from other folks. I also loved the stamp—I used it on a stamp-themed traveling post card for someone who loves Lord of the Rings. One stamp= much happiness. 🙂
Comment: Thank you for the icecream card and note! It's weird to rerad it's getting warmer ('cause: summer), where you are - as here we're finally getting into the real cold days! Somehow I just can't wrap my head around reversed seasons LOL The cats are doing well but demand warm & comfy beds :-D Say HI to yours from us?!
Comment: I just received your postcard today, and realized that the first review I gave you was for the card my other partner sent me. You must have wondering "What on earth is she talking about?!" Ha ha Oops, sorry about that!
The Patti's & Cream card is great, and so is the postage stamp you close for me. Thank you so much! Lemon curd & marshmallow sounds delightful. And yes, we got snow last weekend. I LOVE the snow, so it made my day.
Thank You for the lovely card!
I have been dreaming about taking a holiday in New Zealand! Unfortunately after Covid the ticket prices have skyrocketed and I wont be able to afford it for another year or so.
But can You recommend me any places I should visit in New Zealand? The less touristy, the better. :)
Comment: Thanks for the great card and stickers:) Plus the stamps didn't get cancelled!! NZ has some of the coolest postage stamps, I love the cat ones especially.
We mostly see Great Grey Owls (on our farm), although I have seen a Barred Owl at a local Birds of Prey Foundation event, they are unfortunately classified as a "species at risk" here these days. I'd love to see one up on the farm someday, there are LOTS of mice avail to snack on! Wishing you a lovely Dec:)
Comment: Thank you so much - what a nice postcard and stamp! And it got here fast, yay! Thank you for all the recommendations - I used to love horror movies but not as much now so these are good ideas for me! Enjoy summer as our winter is starting to hit - we had a little snow over the weekend...!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap. We have things in common. Tarot daily readings to start a day. I practise spiritualism, so freeing and peaceful. I work in a grocery store in deli. cut back to 3 dys wk. too demanding, backbreaking and anxiety. I hope to retire partially in a few years. rain and wind from a hurricane west of here. sleepy time! Thanks again. Namaste
Comment: I just received your bird PC yesterday. TYVM for the cute Hummingbird PC. I've never seen a Hummingbird like this before either. But of course can only be found in South America. We too have Hummingbirds here. At least 8 different breeds of them that I know of. Every summer, we put up a Hummingbird feeder and there's always at least 6 or so showing up to feed from it. They are so beautiful ! Take care and have a good day.
Comment: Thanks so much for the nice card all the way from NZ! It was fun to read about the books you've been reading. I just saw the Crawdads movie but haven't seen the book. All the best to you! Cathy
Comment: rcvd, just in time for round #24! Thanks so much for the colourful extra postcard! I have tried 2 or 3 times, but I just can't get into Where the Crawdads Sing! I finally just deleted the sample. Hope you enjoyed Counterfeit. (and oh my gosh, I'm jealous for the Guernsey Postcrossing travelling postcard! Laughs!)
Comment: I love the front of the postcard! I love reading, I too like cozy mysteries and mysteries. I win a few of Good reads giveaways. Sometimes new popular fiction. And a few inspiring books. I will ck out Bones Don't Lie. Thank you so much! Happy Reading!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the abundant supply of postcards. They are all very nice, and fun for me. It's great. I had to come back and add that I totally missed the great washi tape you included in your envelope. You really did outdo yourself Thank you so much
Comment: Thank you so much, for sharing what you've read. I'm sure you have already finished the book " Book Lover's" by Emily Henry. I looked it up online and it sounds pretty good for a Romance. Normally I don't read romance. Unless it's Historical, like the 1700's or 1800's. You mentioned, your next book is " When Sorrow Comes" by Seanan McGute? You probably have that one read too by now, huh? How was it? Lately, I've been reading Fairy story books and I'm reading "A Sprinkle of Fairy Dust" and has all different stories in it by Elizabeth Bevarly, Elaine Crawford, Marylyle Rogers, and Maggie Benson Shayne. So far it is pretty dang good! Have a wonderful day Natasha!
Comment: Thanks for the cute bear postcard - love the whale stamp and Isabelle sticker too! I also have Pashmina on my island and she was one of my original villagers as well. Savannah and Norma are both so cute though I've never had them in any of my games.
Comment: Hey Tash! (as a side note: I've never heard the nickname Tash for Natasha so just wanted to say that's super cool) Got your card, I absolutely love it! I didn't see the stamp before I read about how fall was coming, so that was fun to realize this postcard took quite the journey! Also love how your Washi, stamp, and sticker are all red--brilliant! Thank you so much!
Comment: These are wonderful postcards, thank you so much! I love LouPaper and haven't had one in a long time, so I especially thank you for that one. And I'm going to check out the company who published the frog card, I have a feeling I'll be placing an order with them. Ha ha. Thanks for the playing cards too. Nice choices :-)
Comment: Thank you very much for the fab postcards and adorable stickers!! It got here pretty fast! I got three things from NZ today - sent on various days! So glad the mail is moving though, yay! Thank you for joining my swap!
Comment: I just got your swap and it was so lovely! You sent the prettiest PCs, stickers, and washi. I felt absolutely spoiled, thank you 💜 Also, I am well, thank you. Hope you are well too. I really enjoyed the sweet note about your day. Thank you for making the swap personal 💜
Comment: Thank you so much! I love love love your note and all the extra goodies-- I'm excited to add the cards to my collection :) So funny about our similar birthdays-- my best friend in preschool was March 8 as well! I absolutely will check out the book about self care, because that is something I really want to prioritize. The fiction books sound good too-- I love atomespheric reads. Hope you are well, and thanks again!
Response: yay I'm glad you enjoyed it :) all the best!
Comment: Thank you!! So many fun stickers :) You were super generous, wow! Thanks for joining. I hope you will join us again. I definitely can relate - I generally think I have stickers in all the categories...and then realize that I have to figure something out!!
Comment: As discussed through private message, I am rating you a 5 because you have no control over things not being mailed and you met the requirements of this swap through the messages we exchanged. I will confirm with you when your postcard arrives!
Comment: Thank you so much for the extra goodies! Your mail arrived around Dec 29, but I’ve just returned from a holiday trip. Thank you for the holiday wishes! I believe that “late” wishes just make for more celebrating. :)
Comment: Hi Natasha, thank you so much for your letter. I got it yesterday !! I love everything you put together. Thanks !! I will write you back, sending you some tea from Mexico. Enjoy !! Take care !!
Response: Ýou're so welcome, i'm glad it finally arrived :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your viewing. The British sewing bee is one that I've had half an eye on but keep getting sucked into MAFS. I love my sewing machine but curtains (with wonky/designer hems) are my speciality!
Comment: Thank you again for another lovely swap. I enjoy receiving items from you because I can see the care and effort you put in them each time. I wasn't affected by any dog or cat hair. Huzzah! Thank you too for that consideration. Stay amazing and stay human. =) Cheers.
Comment: Dear Tash,
every time I receive a postcard from you my heart fills with joy! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, it's really beautiful! I have never been to Antarctica but I hope to visit such a cold place at least once in my life!
I wish you all the best,
Comment: Such a stunning card! And I'm quite obsessed with the toadstool stamps! Thank you so much. I also had trouble with literary crushes, because I tend to be fascinated with the characters in my favorite books rather than crush on them. I think in the end, I resorted to crushes from X-Men comics, like Gambit, Colossus, and Banshee. haha
Comment: Epic happymail today!! I swear I saw the postie admiring my LOTR postcard. I mean, she never lingers too much at the box but today she seemed to be there longer - I suspect she's a Tolkien fan!! LOL!! You can be my partner anytime with such gorgeous postcards. Where did you get the PCs? If you saw Amazon, I will fall out my chair. Thank you for joining the swap and the amazing LOTR PC!! xxMuggleMom
Response: That's awesome!!! They actually are just released from NZ Post - so they are pretty rare. I knew when I saw the swap they were worth getting though, they are lovely cards :)
Comment: Thank you for the great card and the washi tape! I haven't heard of the "Downside Ghosts" series. I did add A Long Way to A Small Angry Planet to my TBR list. Thank you for the recommendation.
Comment: Thanks for cute card, Tash! I've not heard of either of this book, so I'll have tor look it up. I'm glad you enjoyed The Last Thing, and I hope the next one is as good. Have a fantastic day! ☆Raynor
Comment: I love the vibrant, colourful card you wrote in!
And I too have been enjoying being matched with particular partners over multiple swaps - it’s been an unexpected pleasure to get to know people here beyond just a simple swap of items.
Comment: ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤!! The card first of all is one of the most beautiful cards I've ever seen. Then, the amazing, wonderful, thought provoking quotes filled my heart and soul. And more...all of the. the washi. I love that you chose some cats, too. PLUS all of the fun paper ephemera to top it off. Wow. You are so generous, thoughtful and kind. Sincerely,
Response: That arrived so fast, and i'm so glad you loved the card - it made it hard to write on but so worth it LOL
Comment: Hey Tash! Thank you for the lovely donut themed postcard - it’s super cute!! Also, thanks so much for the book recommendation. I usually don’t lean towards fantasy type books, but I may just have to check this one out! Take care and stay safe x
Comment: This is my second Lou Paper, yay! Thanks for adding to my collection. Also wow the Hobbit stamp is so cool. Thank you for the book recommendations! I'll definitely check "A long way to a small angry planet"
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard and I love your pretty printing. I've enjoyed British mysteries before. Kudos to you. I just recently finished "Scandal," a political drama. (I don't normally watch political dramas but Kerry Washington is fantastic in it. Love her range and skill.)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter, washi tape and stickers. I will be writing you back. Love to talk tv shows with people. I actually just sent you something for another swap but will write a letter tonight.
Comment: Got your letter the other day - loved all the moon and stars you added on the envelope🥰. Enjoyed reading about the books you have been reading. I will definitely look them up. The day I got your letter my daughter told me New Zealand came out with a wonderful set of LOTR postage stamps …. Maybe you will get my name in a future swap and will use one of those wonderful stamps on my envie 😊
Comment: Thank you for the sheep postcard and sharing what you've been up to. I'm not a big Rugby fan but have watched some games just to see what it was. I was really confused but it did look interesting. I hope that you are staying safe. Take care!
Comment: Recd your swap today. Love the stationary and envie. And your books sound very interesting. I will definitely check them out. And thank you for the book mark, I just love the saying and pets. The days are starting to cool and Mani loves laying on the porch soaking up the sun. Hope your enjoying your Spring.Keep safe. bearnbabs
Comment: Thank you so much Tash! I can tell you put a lot of thought into the postcards you chose for this swap and I really appreciate it. Each postcard is in such great condition too. I’ve been wanting more Lou Paper postcards and this one is so summery! I hope you have a lovely day! :)
Comment: Thank you SO much for the gorgeous notecards and stickers!! Everything you sent was perfect for me, I honestly love the cat and plants notecard so much I think I'm going to keep it and put it on my wall haha. Your mail was truly a treat to open, I feel very lucky today 😊 ❤
Response: You are so welcome, glad you enjoyed it :)
Comment: LOVE this cute little penguin!! It's so weird that you just see them wandering around in NZ... if I saw that in Texas I would think that the apocalypse is near! Although I'm sure you would freak out if you saw a big longhorn wandering around in NZ! Thank you again for the lovely PC!
Comment: Thanks again for a pretty scenic postcard of NZ! The closest beach to where I live doesn’t look quite as nice, either, which is sad. Wondering how you came up with your SB name & what it means to you? I like it. ❤️ ~ Z
Comment: WOW THIS WAS SUCH A SWEET TREASURE❤️❤️
Thank you so much for the beautiful postcards and the beautiful stickers ❤️❤️❤️ Also it was so kind and thoughtful of you to make mickey address labels for me. Thank you so very much ❤️❤️❤️

Response: That brand of tea is sooo good!!! :) Looking forward to it!
Comment: Hello Natasha, thanks for the tea! ^.^ You having y chilly day really made me envy, as we are having summer and I'm not the biggest fan of it! ^^° Your book recommodation sounds really fascinating; I like what you described and I will totally check it out! Thanks a lot!
Comment: If I could give more hearts I absolutely would! I love every bit of this envelope full of botanical sciencey witchy stuff! Very generous, and remarkably to my taste. Thank you very much, birthday buddy. 👯
Response: Aww thank you, i'm so glad you liked it!!!
Comment: Thank you for the happy mail today! I checked out Reuben Paterson website and his collection is GORGEOUS. I love the firework collection and I can't imagine how beautiful they are in real life. I checked out the video on his site of the clothes he designed for a fashion show - incredible. Thanks for bringing a New Zealand artist to my attention. xxMuggleMom
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Dunedin, NZ pc! Love it! I’ve always wanted to visit New Zealand, ever since I was a child and saw it in a Nat Geo magz. It was nice to learn a bit about you, too. Thanks also for writing a lot more than just “Best wishes” or “kind regards,” as some others have done. I like learning about people. ❤️ ~ Z
Response: I'm so pleased you enjoyed it - and i hope you get here one day!!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the letter! I loved the paper, and the book sounds real fun! I also loved the Practical Magic movie, so I might have to check this book out.
Have a wonderful day, Tash!
Comment: Love the illustration, Thank You. And "complicated relationship with SW", ha, yeah! I think they really screwed up some of those movies. But I like that they are continuing with so many different story lines.
Comment: Oh Tash, what an amazing package! The first thing I pulled out were the ACNH stickers, I squeed!!! I haven't been playing for the last few months, but if they ever get around to making a new update, I will pick it back up. My current fave villagers are Judy and Zell (I know, weird, but he's been with me since the beginning and he really grew on me lol). The honey stickers will indeed be awesome in both my bee and garden journals! The letter sets are beautiful, I love the variety. Thank you for really making my day!
Comment: This was above and beyond an extra special package! Thank you so much for the lovely variety of ephemera. Everything you sent was wonderful, and well and above what the swap actually required. Extra thanks for reading my profile and catering the swap just for me. You did an amazing job and I appreciate it so very much!
Response: You're so welcome! Love putting these things together :) Plus your profile made it easy.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely notecard, your nice note and the book recommendation.
I'm way behind in my reading. I had Covid in January and it left me with post-coved fog-brain. I am just now getting to where I can concentrate on reading again.
Comment: thank you for the beautiful card, Natasha. And for reminding me to finally read Roald Dahl! I know a little bit about Matilda and her story. Now I need to have a closer look at this awesome stack of creativity books on the card :)
Comment: What a wonderful & generous swap, Tash. I love every one of the PCs you chose. The stamps are great &, along with the tissue papers, will get used in my collages. The air mail stickers are also much appreciated. Thank you for such a thoughtful swap.
Comment: Thank you for wonderful postcards that suit my interests well - all keepers! Enjoyed the Year of the Ox postage, too. Cute bee paper for the swap note also. Hope you are enjoying your autumn; spring is here with warm windy days and lots of flowers blooming! I am always flooded with good memories when I see the New Zealand postmark and Dunedin return address!
Comment: The orange washi is my favorite too, followed closely by the one with the hedgehogs!!! Thank you so much for those and for the extras! I LOVED the postcards and the stationery you used was adorable!!
Comment: Hey Tash lovely greetings back .. first of all i have to say i loved the smell of the teas as i open the envelope mm it will be difficult to choose which to try first :)) and i really enjoyed abt reading your home and your pets :))
Comment: Oh my goodness!! So many hearts for this swap. Every card is so beautiful and unique. I love them all, the whale might be my favorite, but the butterflies are amazing and of course, the sewing machine will be up on my wall in my sewing room. Hope to swap again. Thank you so very much for the six cards!!
Response: I was hoping the sewing machine would be right up your alley :) Enjoy and all the bet!
Comment: Aspect is doing well. Since it's winter here, it is cuddle season. She wakes me up to demand I go to the living room to hold her like a baby so she can sleep! In the summer, she usually prefers to be near because it's too hot for cuddles.
Comment: Thank you for a good variety and many extras! Also love the kiwi notecard! I have very fond memories of our 3 week trip to your spectacularly beautiful country several years ago! I remember the lovely train station in Dunedin!
Comment: Tash, thank you SO much for this truly amazing swap! I don't even know where to begin, I just love everything! Especially the beautiful letter set and postcards, and the first day cover is so cool! And the ephemera inside...😍 Anyway, thank you again and happy swapping!!
Response: So glad you liked it :) Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the kangaroo postcard! I hope you're enjoying your summer weather at the beach with your puppy! It's the coldest part of winter here right now - I'm staying warm with a space heater from my mom and some thick wool socks!
Response: Aww it will warm up soon - it's been some lovely days here it's hard to believe there are storms elsewhere!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard and the book recommendations. I have read "A long way to a small angry planet," and I think we may have the same reading tastes! Any chance you are on good reads?
Response: Darn! not a new recommendation but i'm glad you like it too - the next book comes out next week and i'm really excited! My goodreads is : http://https//www.goodreads.com/user/show/1851983-tash
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely swap! I really enjoyed reading about your booklist and will definitely check out your recommendations! I loved the sloth notecard and the stationery you wrote on!
Comment: Thank you for the very unique postcard. Seals 'swimming' in space make perfect sense! :) Our winter is grey, cloudy and rainy. I hope you had fun at the wedding and are enjoying your summer. :)
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful falcon postcard. We have eagles, ravens, crows, and nappies, as well as all kinds of seabirds and song birds. As soon as the virus is gone, you must come to Alaska! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: I LOVE getting swaps from you!!! You send the coolest stuff. Thank you for all the wonderful stickers and your note. Always happy when I see your name in my swaps!!!
Response: I'm so glad that I can make a great swap for you :) I always avoided these swaps as sticker sheets aren't common here and I don't know what's right to send but it's great to get good feedback :) have a great day!!
Comment: I love this postcard. I am very fond of penguins and my boys have studied them often in school. I cannot even imagine having a penguin colony nearby! I would never stop watching!!! So different than my warm, tropical state. Thank you! Take care
Comment: I loved your wonderful letter. I love urban fantasy but haven’t read any in a while. Two jobs . I will def ck out all the ones in your letter ! So many different ones you gave me to look up , thanks . I mostly read paper books. Yard sales, good reads giveaways etc. thanks for the magnetic bookmarks and other goodies !
Response: I prefer paper books too :) I am glad you enjoyed it!!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE receiving from you!! I just sent you out a PC and I really hope to get you as a partner in something bigger soon. You spoil me SO much. Thank you for the lovely PCs and papers and stickers and EVERYTHING!! It's totally ALL ME!!! Thank you :D
Comment: Hi Tash, Thanks so much for pretty green scenic card you sent - an eon ago! - for this swap. YAY, it arrived! 💌📬 We did have some snow flurries ❄️ on Christmas 🎄Day, but it didn’t stick, because the ground was warm. It’s just chilly here, not truly Cold 🥶. I hope you have an enjoyable Summer after the rains are over. Take care 🤗
Comment: Thank you for the owl postcard! You asked about our winter weather - right now, it's still very late fall: chilly, overcast, rainy. Our real winter weather doesn't start until mid-January. We usually get 1-2 big snow storms in January & February. Otherwise, it's mostly just gray.
Response: Fair enough, our summer is a bit of the same - it will show it eventually :)
Comment: Hi, Tash, thank you for your christmas card, and all the extras , love the christmas stamps . enjoy the holiday season.... on the beach..it's almost freezing here ... haha .. quite a difference !
All the best for the New Year ! Monique x
Comment: Thank you so much for all the books you listed, I have Practical Magic somewhere in my book stash. I dont watch movies too much. SO I appreciate all the books you told me about. Maybe Santa will bring me some books! Merry Christmas!! PS I love PUKKA brand tea!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it the tea, and i hope you get many many books under the tree :)
Comment: I love your bird, I love mischief birds they are a lot of fun to watch. My daughter is a birdwatcher and she would love to see it in real life. The stamps you used are also very nice. Thank you very much and have an extremely wonderful day today and every day.
Comment: Your wonderful envie of goodies arrived today all the way from NZ! That was pretty quick considering all that's going on in the world. I love all that you sent and especially the New Zealand used postage! ❤️ Always enjoy receiving an envie from one of our international friends. Thank you very much for a fun swap!
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it and that it's taking a good time to get places too :)
Comment: I love the Butterflies you sent me! And clearly you have amazing taste in books as well :) I've read parts of the Iron Druid books as well, but I don't think I've read all of them - might be worth rereading from the beginning :) I read a lot of RJ Blain at the moment - the writingstyle might not be for everyone, but I really like it.
All the best Sophie
Response: Oh good to hear - i will check them out :) I need a good new series LOL
Comment: I love your stationary! Thank you for all the book recommendations. I love series too, but I try to wait for them to be over so I never have to wait for the next book to come out. I just finished Enola Holmes and loved it. I really want to read the whole series.
Comment: Thank you for this Harry Potter surprise and also writing about your last read book. Always love to know what people are reading or book recommendations. Haven't head of Naomi Novik so will check it out.
Comment: Thank you SO much for your wonderful, thoughtful tea swap. I really appreciate that you sent the Joker playing card...the Tim Burton illustration is brilliant!! I can't wait to try the Blackcurrant Beauty tea, in fact, I think I'll try it tonight :D Stay well xx
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I hope you enjoy :)
Comment: Hi Natasha! This crazy mail situation has made international mail come even later than it used to - I just got your PC recently! It's absolutely beautiful, thank you for it! Our mini bell pepper plants are doing well, and actually, mom planted starfruit seeds and she was about to throw it away when it suddenly sprouted! It's crazy! We can't wait for them to produce fruit (hopefully)! Hope your move is going well!!
Response: The post is so odd at the moment, but it's getting there! I'm glad that you are doing well with your plants :)
Comment: I didn't receive this but mail was absolutely insane this summer so I'm giving all my missing swaps a pass, no need to resend. Hopefully USPS will get it's act together before ballots need to be returned!
Response: I just received a card for this swap today - so it might take another few days or a week, but it should arrive! Please let me know if it doesn't.
Comment: Loved ALL of the cards! Thanks for all of the extra's. Hope your are having a nice week. It is fall here. Loving all the colors on the trees. Take care. Corona Virus is on the rise again in our area. UGG!
Response: I'm so glad, i hope you are enjoying fall! Spring is a bit chilly so far here, so looking forward to the nicer days!
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the letter! I really enjoyed reading about what you've been reading. :) The Fox's Curse sounds really interesting! I also adore the bookmark and artwork you included. Thank you!
Response: You are so welcome! i have read all four books in that series now, and i'm still not 100% sure how i feel about it LOL!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE this card! I've been trying not to buy this set for a while now, but it's just so beautiful. Beautiful stamp too and hope you're loving Spring! :):):) I'm loving Fall and a break from summer heat right now. I wore a sweater today! :D
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! I always try to talk myself out of buying new sets, but they are all so nice!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! :) I love the scene depicted on the postcard ("that felt good"). I didn't watch Discovery but I watched some episodes of Picard (I still don't know whether I like it or not).
Comment: Hi Tash! Thank you for the super cute bookmark and the beautiful card! I love the Christmas post cards and the tea looks great-my Mum thanks you too! We are doing well here, so far, I hope you and yours are safe and well too! Look forward to swapping again soon. All the best!! <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely postcards! They are beautiful, especially the wildlife at night one. And I love the stickers! I've gotten very into Animal Crossing lately. If you'd like to be friend there, my code is SW-4892-8019-7890 !
Response: Aww i'm glad you appreciate them! I'm not sure what my Switch code is, but i'll add you :) I'm not a great friend lol, but if you ever want to visit my island just send a message! It's Tash from Te Fiti
Comment: Oh my goodness, I may have cried, okay, so I did cry, this swap was perfect! Thank you so much for all the goodies, they were so cute and utterly lovely! I adored everything! Thank you! Have a splendid day and stay safe xx
Response: Awww i'm so pleased!! I'm glad you enjoyed it
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous card! I absolutely love M.C. Escher and always appreciate a good art card. :) A good friend spent 6 months in Wanaka a few years back. She said it reminded her a little too much of Vancouver and the local area, haha!
Response: I bet! My previous co-worker just moved to Vancouver and many of the vineyards and areas look similar!
Comment: Thank you! Your card is beautiful :) It's getting hot over here so the beaches are crowded (despite social distancing still being in place...) I imagine since it's winter there, that's not so much of a problem. I've always wanted to visit New Zealand. When I was a teenager I had an online friend from NZ and she always talked so fondly of her home that I wished I could visit. Maybe some day once the world has gotten a bit more normal and people can travel again...
Response: Yeah it's definitely cooler and therefore quieter on the beaches :) glad you liked the card!
Comment: NZ is on my bucket list! I love keas by the way, they're such cheeky birds and absolutely one of my top favorite parrots♡ Your nature beats many others and I can't forhet that lotr was filmed at your corner of the world♡ Thanks for great card♡♡
Comment: Hi Tash!
Wow! What a wonderful (and generous!) selection of cards arrived from you today. I'm CRAZY for all of them and don't have any of them yet! Those little chefs are too cute, the lavender from Provence, the Denslow's "Wizard" and, of course, that neat Anne Taintor are welcome additions to my collection. Thank you so much for choosing so thoughtfully!
Comment: ohhh aaaa!! :) :) <3 Thank you so very much for the besautiful envie you decoreated with the nice stamps! Like them all!! Thank you for the paper and cards and stickers! :) <3
Thank you thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the sweet envie, papers, & handmade envies. You did a really nice job on it all. Not to worry. I enjoyed this swap and am looking forward to partnering up with you again:-) blessings,
Comment: Thanks for the marmot. It was a nice surprise from "across the ditch". Perhaps you could send us some hot weather. We are tired of the cold and rain in Melbourne. It's nearly summer and we haven't had many hot days yet!!!
Response: Its raining here! Wouldn't mind summer picking up at alll :D
Comment: I adore your parcel! Thank you so much for the lovely items - especially the thumb piano (I was over the moon, sitting around for half an hour making up little melodies). But even better than them was your letter! I will certainly write back as soon as I find enough time for a long letter. Thanks for a very special swap!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! as soon as i saw the little piano i knew you must have it. And then i worried after i sent it because i was like no way did i send enough stuff, i should have found some other things :D
Comment: I don't know what your talking about.....you have nothing to worry about. This ATC is beautiful and thank you so much for the extra gifts. My only comment to help you out is that next time you send out an ATC on the back of the card put your username and the name of the swap. Some people also put the date and title for their art but you don't have to. Thanks again!
Response: thank you so much! will do that next time :)
Comment: natasha, great package! i am so excited to try everything! none of these candies are available (at least not easily) in the united states! i am eating some of the party pack as i write...yummy! :), sschlegel
Response: oh i'm glad! :D I had fun picking them out :D
Comment: Haha, that's so cool that you're in NZ too! I was surprised to see the postmark, I was thinking "I haven't bought anything off trademe lately..." Thanks so much, I can't wait to open it!
I opened it today (well yesterday technically,we're in front of the rest of the world, woo)...thankyou so much! Loved it! :) Merry Christmas! :)
Comment: I loved the package! I think you did a great job with finding all the items that we needed. My fav is the hot chocolate..(never had this kind) and the CUUUTe wrapping paper...the ornament is going on my tree as well...but i LOVED everything..Thanks again! =D
Response: oh thank you so much, i know i said in the card, but i really was surprised at how much i struggled with this! :) I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Comment: Thank you! The soap smells yummy, can't wait to try it out in the morning!
UPDATE: *I just had to come back and add a heart to this rating! I know all you did was choose it from my favorites, but I loooove this soap! It's my new absolute favorite!*
Comment: Wow! Did this package smell good! Even though I have a ton of soap, I LOVE the Death by Cinnamon soap (have been wanting to try Savor). The waffle bar is also awesome, and I love Twinings tea (we do not get good ones here, so I do like bagged tea from other countries). The stationary and bead kit are also cute.
Response: Savor is my favourite soap, and I have to admit other soaps have yet to come close! :) I very much recommend it!
Comment: you are officially five shades of awesome! i'm excited about trying the soap. I'm like, two seconds away from a shower! I'm pretty sure this is the biggest and heaviest bar of chocolate i have ever seen!!! and thanks for the tiny note pad and thank you so so so much for the coins!!!!! I'm so happy! I'll be sending to you tomorrow or the next day.
wish i could give more than one heart!
Response: awww thanks so much!! I haven't tried that soap before, but i have one bar here for me, so i might try it tonight.
:) you're very welcome!
Comment: Beautiful postcard - and thanks so much for the description of the beach on the back. We're heading into colder weather here in Michigan (USA), so it was lovely to imagine a sunny day at this beach. :)
