Comment: Oh my gosh Kira I loved the zine! Living where I do in Australia means every Christmas for me is a summer beach one :D There's always lots of images of Santa in a singlet with a surfboard haha. I hope one day I will get to experience a cold white Christmas like yours!
Comment: Oh my goodness, Kira!! I can't even explain how much joy this brought me opening this today. I seriously had tears in my eyes for how thankful I am for you and for all you sent me. These ATC's are in good hands with me, I can't wait to add them all to my collection! You have no idea truly how much light and joy you brought into my life. I am so thankful, grateful and appreciative. I love every single one with my whole heart. You are truly an angel. Thank you so much again, from the bottom of my heart.
Sending love and hugs to you!
Comment: thank you thank you thank you so so much if i could give you 100 hearts i would honestly thank you!! i wish you all the best with your pregnancy and i hope that your family is happy and healthy :)
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you! For the massive package full of wonderful bits and pieces. I was so excited to receive it and unpack it all. It felt like Christmas came to my letterbox! I really appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness in choosing so many lovely things for me. Thank you to Marie Kondo for inspiring you too!!! Thanks again, you made my day :)
Comment: thank you for the nice washi and note . i hope your hand heals fast :) can you dm me your address so can make sure its the right one again to send you something. the one on envelope ripped:( <3
Comment: WOW!!! I am so lucky to have you as a partner - your mini zine was fantastic! So so very creative! It makes me want to redo this swap and make a zine of my own :D I realize now that for some crazy reason I've always thought zentangles and zines were the same thing (?!). Thank you for showing me this awesome new-to-me craft and for putting so much effort into making this swap so special!!
Comment: Thank you so much. Such a beautiful zine. I had so much trouble with my layout, so I'm amazed at yours. I agree totally that animals should be free, though I have a lot of non-human roommates who have no place else they can go!
Oh, thank you so much for the extras. Such a happy surprise that we are both vegan!
Comment: Reading your zine made me relax! It's lovely :) I've been to Germany a couple of times, never Bavaria though. If you ever find yourself in the north of Norway again, give me a shout. We can talk about swapping and overpriced beer over an overpriced beer :p
Comment: Hello dear Kira, thank you so much for a very promising swap. I like how you packaged everything, it looks wonderful! Can't wait to start opening the presents. Happy Holidays! I just wanted to let you know, how much I loved unwrapping all the little gifts you send me! Thank you so much for all the great paper goodies! I'm enjoying all the new tea samples as well, one a day. This was a great swap!
Comment: Hallo Kira,
ganz lieben Dank für dein schönes zine!
Not only many thanks for your zine but also for all the cute goodies you included! And of course I especially love the airmail stickers!!!
Schon interessant, wie die verschiedenen zines ausfallen. Toller swap, bestimmt mache ich noch einmal mit.
Comment: Thank you for the variety of tapes sent. Squirrels are great to see, but don't see that much tapes in the craft stores where I mostly get them. I order online for different washi, or go crazy with the same olds at the craft stores I see. I love Fall, my favourite season. I use to hike when single, over a dozen years ago and hope to get into it when daughter will grow up and schedule less busy. Have a great Fall!
Comment: Thank you very much for sharing with me your week in different types of washi samples. I like the note card you used and the simple but pretty envelope with different kind of stamps ❤❤❤ Seems like you enjoy hiking and I hope you'll have great time in new place 😊
Comment: I received your lovely washi envelope with the cool tapes you chose for each of the letters (watercolor, animal, stars, hearts, & ice cream), along with the extras! :) I know what you mean - even though some of the tapes aren't really true washi, they are still pretty! Did you make the card you sent them in? It was neat too.
Comment: Love your Swap Bot name. So cute. I like fairies. Sometimes when Steve and I are in the woods especially in the spring it seems like it should be a place filled with fairies. Love the card too. Thank you very much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful mini zine I got from you today. I think a lot of people in Germany and the Netherlands would love to have some rain these days... I liked the washi samples a lot and the tea... Just the name is so wonderful. Even translated into English, haha. Opening it would be a shame, but I don't know how long I can wait. Thanks for hosting this great swap, maybe we'll 'meet' again in another of your swaps.
Comment: Hello! I’m so sorry for the delay on the rating, unfortunately Mexico’s post isn’t the best. That’s why I haven’t entered type 2 o 3 swaps. But I just received today you letter and it’s beautiful! Thank you so much!
Comment: You can't know how big my smile was when I opened your envelope. Your zine was absolutely adorable and I WILL be keeping it to show future grandchildren, if they ever materialize! You sent along the original but I'm thinking you might like it back so you can make more copies? Thank you so much for your lovely efforts in this swap. I love it!
Comment: Yay package from you arrived today. so much to look at and read. thank you so much. your map made me laugh as i thought about making a magical map of christen land but thought you might think i was super weird or something. not that im not lol. will write back this weekend when i have some extra time and let you know when i send it out :) cheers
Response: I've got a big heart for weirdos ;D I'm looking forward to our next swap!
Comment: Thank you for this absolutely amazing super-generous parcel, I love everything you sent! (Well, I am not that much into comicbooks, but my boyfriend is crazy about them, so now I have something to bribe him with when I need some chore done). I cannot wait to start the stitching project - what a great idea to include it in this swap. Thank you very much for this gret swap.
Comment: Thank you for a letter and additional goodies. I was totally confused when I saw 2 of your envelopes and one empty which arrived a week before but then it all made clear. I really liked the stationeries.
Comment: Thank you for the stocking stuffer and card. I appreciate your efforts on putting this swap together. Thanks for your good wishes. Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!!!!! 25/12/2016: I LOVED the clear stamps and card. You made my day!!!!!
Comment: OMG YOU GOT ME OVOMALTINE COOKIES!! <3 I seriously didn't even know those existed!! I love them, I've eaten almost half of them already. Thank you! And the pieces of washi tape is definitely gonna be useful. I haven't opened the present yet (will wait until Christmas, or at least try to), but I loved everything else so I think I'll love that one too. Thank you again! <3
Comment: Hello Kira,
Thank you for the 5 washi tape samples you sent me for this swap. I like all the washi samples you sent me. I look forward to using them in the future. I loved your note and the quote about quilts.
Comment: I feel spoiled by the box of pink goodies! Thank you so much :) Everything was absolutely delightful. Many hearts ðŸ’•ðŸ’•ðŸ’•ðŸ’•
I forgot to add that I did see the final GOT episode. I thought the last two episodes were the best episodes of the entire series. I loved it. Have you seen it yet?
Comment: Vielen Dank fÃ¼r die supersÃ¼ÃŸen PapiertÃ¼ten! Ich werde sie bestimmt in dem ein oder anderen Swap als GeschenktÃ¼tchen verwenden. :)
Thank you so much for the wonderful paper bags! I love them! Great swap! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for sending and resending when your first package got stolen. I love what you sent! The stationary and labels are fab! You also sent a Greedo!!!! Whoot! Love it! Thank you for being such a stellar partner! Best wishes.
Response: I'm so glad it arrived with full content this time :) Unfortunately the post office didn't help at all, but the important thing is that you got a fandom bag that you enjoy - mission accomplished!^^
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely Flipbook! And you're totally right: Listen to your yourself and stay close to yourself! Wishing you all the best during your hike!
Take care and all the best!
Response: Thanks for the heart and the travel wishes :)
Comment: Thank you for such a lovely swap, Kira!! The stickers, clips, bookmark, postcards, sticky notes, Owl Pencil, washi and papers are all so very nice! I will have a lot of fun using these in my planners!
Happy New Year!!
Response: Thanks for the heart! I'm glad you like it and will find good use for them :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your volunteering experiences! The woman you meet with sounds like a very special lady! It sounds like you have had a great experience with her and the residential home. When I was younger, I used to go with my grandma to volunteer at a residential home during bingo hour. She noticed that they could use a younger person to run prizes around or sit with someone that doesn't move as quickly as the numbers are called. I always enjoyed talking with various people and helping them win prizes.
Comment: Hi Kira!
Thank you for the lovely December themed planner goodies! <3 I love the Disney stickers, washi tape and the clips and all the fun December and Christmas themed things! I will definitely have a lot of fun decorating my planner with all the lovely goodies you sent! Love the bookmark too! Everything is so nice!! Thank you!!
Response: I'm glad it arrived and you like the things I arranged for you :) Thanks for the heart and have a merry Christmas!
Comment: Thanks so much for this swap :) I always love these sticker bags....I was impressed with how well traveled the bag from Denmark was! Also love the extra postage stamps and horsey postcard. For some reason the envelope was open but it appears everything got here safely.
Response: Thanks for the heart and enjoy passing on the bags :)
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful swap! I love all the papers, and the beauty products, and the tea, and all the other wonderful things you included for me. Many thanks for such a thoughtful swap!
Response: Thank you very much for warning me of the flaker :) I'm glad it arrived and you liked it. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I do not have enough words or hearts to express how awesome this envelope and swap was! Truly worth waiting for, your descriptions and research were just EPIC (see told you I didn't have real words) and I could imagine that world... Sheer brilliance! Plus there was some major squealing when the swap cards fell out of the envelope! Awesome thank you so much the day is so much brighter!!!
Response: I'm very glad it arrived and you liked it so much :) Have a lovely day!
Comment: Oh my! I did not want to open the envie because I didn't want to ruin it in all of it's froggie splendor! :) The postcards are beautiful as well as the stickers and cute little frogs on the paper too!!! :)
Response: Thanks for the heart and I'm glad you liked it :) The frog paper has once been a placemat in a pizzeria at Lago di Garda in Italy and I saved it for a special occassion because I liked it so much. Have a lovely weekend!
Comment: I loved your letter - it was full of so many lovely details - the Alps, Nepal, Seychelles! Everything sounds wonderful! I look forward to writing to you. Thank you so much for all the lovely extras - I love them and will put them to good use in my journals! Take care and have a Happy New Year! Peace, Michelle
Response: Thanks for the heart and I'm glad you liked the letter :) Happy new year!
Comment: Thank you so much for the story - I enjoyed it very much and the stamp is gorgeous :D Btw my husband was a bit confused, he emptied the letterbox and asked me if I ordered sth from a "United Water League" in the US :D
Response: Thanks for the heart and thanks for joining the swap! :)
Comment: Sorry for taking so long to rate this, I have been on vacation! Love the money-ATC. :) And thank you for all the sweet extras, especially the nightmare before christmas postcard. I will be hosting another of this series soon, after I get organized from my vacation! haha.
Comment: Hi Kira! Your mail really made my day! I loved your ATC!!! Athena is my favorite and I made one to send out to my partner hoping I would get another 'Athena' back, and you made the best one! I really like your version very much! Thank you for the extras and the pretty stamps on the envie too! I almost couldn't tell it was an ATC swap! You deserve so many more hearts for this, Kira! Warm hugs, Sungting.
Response: Yay, I'm really happy that it arrived safely and that you like it so much :) I'm looking forward to the next round, thanks for hosting! Have a lovely evening!
Comment: It's very interesting when one of your ancestors is considered a hero/legend, right? My father's family is also into genealogy and has records of our family back when Indonesia still had ancient kingdoms! So thank you for sharing your story! :)
Response: Thanks for the heart! :) Have a lovely weekend!
Comment: The little daisy notecard and iris postcard are very beautiful! Thank you! I love daisies. :) And the ATC you made is just cute with all those desserts! They give me a sugar-craving! hehe. *Goes to hog out on the sweet rice-puddding in the fridge*
Comment: Now we owe each other an icecream, I think. Third time partners? Or am I wrong? Anyway, I can understand your opinions about certain things and we actually share some common opinions about certain things.
Comment: Thank you for answering those questions and writing so much :). I got to know you better! One this I really liked about your answers was the last answer (I like all the other ones, of course, but I found this one really special and especially easy for me to relate to).
Comment: The coolest thing ever - I got to what you wanted to name your kid and we had the SAME GUY'S NAME! I'm not sure if Lucien is popular where you're from, but it's definitely not here - so that was awesome:) Your answers about marriage and vegetarianism and conspiracy theories and accidental weight loss were all things I could very well relate to:) I seriously enjoyed reading your answers, hope everything is well!
Response: Thank you for the heart! :) I drop you a line tomorrow - have a good start into the new week!
Comment: I really loved your suggestions. I'm also coming from Germany and god how I agree with every point you mentioned. Of course, I don't agree with teaching outside because it's unhealthy for me (I have what is called "sun allergy") and it'll be unfair for other students like me (it'll also make us feel like outcasts if we have to stay inside). But aside from that I was really pleased with your suggestions and hope someone will change it already! I hope to see you in future swaps :).
Comment: Hello kira! If there was an option to send more than one heart, you would definitely deserve them! I loved my Tarzan ATC (i went crazy over it) and the postcards are great! All the extra goodies really made my day. Thank you for the effort and wonderful swap.
Response: Thanks for the heart (and imaginary more heart^^) - I'm happy you like it :) Have a lovely day!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your suggestions for this email swap. I have to say that I would agree with all of your suggestions. When I was reading them, I could not help but think that this person has some really great ideas on how to teach, I wonder if she is a teacher. Are you? These were some really helpful ideas that not only the individual but society itself would benefit from. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to swapping with you again in the future. Blessings, ellie :-)
Comment: We have a lot of the same favourites! I love LOTR and I'm assuming you're a fellow Python fan if your favourite quote is "Always look on the bright side of death." haha I have actually been singing that song a lot lately. I have to censor it for my daughter though. lol
Response: Yes, I'm a Monty Python fan, of course :) I hope you'll introduce those geniuses, when she's old enough ;)
Comment: Thank you for your lovely letter, it was a pure pleasure to read it <3 I'll surely take part in further swaps from this series - maybe not the very next one, but the fairy tale one sounds promising! Oh, and thank you for the recipe - expect a bill to pay for my diet if I get too fat because of you XD
Response: Thanks for joining the swap :) And enjoy the cookies ;)
Comment: Thank you so much for the sweet matchbox and all of the goodies! I love the use of the fiber/string on the top of the matchbox.Thank you for your kind note, too. I am so glad you found Swap-bot and are enjoying it. It is so fun to swap happy mail with friends from all over the world!
Response: I'm glad you like it and proud to have received a heart by such a swap-bot celebrity :D Have a lovely day!
Comment: I'm really sorry but I didn't guess the song... I even asked my partner and he didn't know. When I opened the little envelope, I saw that it isn't a song or singer that I know. I tried very hard and wanted to give you a heart but I just didn't get it. Very nice ATC though!
Response: I'm glad you like it anyway ;) Have a great day!
Comment: I wish I could give this like ten extra hearts! It's seriously all things that are majorly important that get overlooked! The studying, honesty, and death penalty especially are ones that I personally think are super important!
Response: I'm glad we share similar values :D Good to know there are others out there who follow the same path :) Have a lovely day!
Comment: Thank you for the pc and the sauna idea! I haven't been in a sauna in ages. I hear they are super popular in Finland? Someone wrote to me once from Finland and said that they are more saunas than people in Finland...or something like that.
anyway, Let's swap vegan recipes! Send me your address :)
