Comment: Thank you! Waiting to open in December. I love your pretty envelope! Silver is one of my favorite Christmas colors. I hope you enjoy your holiday season and stay healthy and happy. â¤ď¸ Update12/6: It's December and opening my Christmas happy mail! I am enjoying the beautiful German Weihnachten card, cat postcard and heart stickers! It was so nice you took time to write a note. Thank you for a wonderful swap and Merry Christmas!
Comment: â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤ Extra hearts for your lovely letter and 'popping the bubbly' snowman! I loved them both. During normal times I play soccer as well as watching it. I miss it! As soon as I saw your address I had to look up where your city is. We were in Germany the summer before last but mostly in the northwest portion. My son wants to go to university in Siegen so, fingers crossed, we'll be travelling there next August to drop him off. He and I have been watching Dortmund games together. đ Stay safe and healthy. Thanks again for a wonderful letter and ATC.
Comment: Thanks for the great card! The only towns I've visited in Germany was Rostock & Warnemunde , while on a cruise. I haven't been to the Czech Republic yet. That and a lot more of Germany is definitely on my bucket list.
Comment: Vielen lieben Dank fĂźr deine unheimlich anmutige Karte! Du hast meinen Geschmack mehr als getroffen und wow...was fĂźr einen Aufwand. Danke, Ich weiĂ Deine BemĂźhungen wirklich zu schĂ¤tzen! Und jetzt hab einen entspannten Abend.
Comment: Grazie mille! Che bello leggere una lettera in italiano :) Sei bravissima. Mi Ă¨ piaciuto tantissimo tutto quello che hai mandato. I tuoi gatti sono fantastici =)
Grazie ancora per questo bellissimo scambio.
Comment: I enjoyed hearing all about your happenings! Glad your husband was safe from car accident, also to travel is so refreshing and nice in these times. Just to see something! I love the ice cream stationary! So Cool! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the reassuring message on your altered Munch postcard. I think I'd be more likely to choose his "Scream" to depict my mindset in the midst of this crazy pandemic, so it's refreshing to see your positive outlook. Stay well & safe,
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely note on the pretty cat card! So sorry to hear about your grandma - I understand what you are going through as my grandma had the same issues before she passed away in June this year. Sending lots of very safe socially distanced hugs your way!!
Response: Thank you for the rating and your very kind words â¤ď¸
Comment: Thank you for the Fuerteventura postcard. It's very beautiful :) I hope one day you also get to live there and feel the sand between your toes and the cold ocean water on your legs. Take care. ~Rebecca
Comment: Guten tag!! and Merci Beaucoup, for the beautiful handmade envelope which contained a wonderful note, stickers, postcard and a map! You are so kind and generous, I appreciate all your effort. Would Love to be where you are, especially for the holidays... Joyeux NoĂÂŤl!! Alles Liebe, Diane
Comment: Hi Manuela, thank you for the pretty envelope, the card and all the nice extras! You wrote about how you miss the sun and have too much rain - perhaps we can swap? We are going through a bad drought and need all the rain we can get. I hope you got a bit of sunshine during your two weeks off. xo
Comment: Wow! What a great pocket letter. I am blown away by all the effort you put into it to decorate everything so beautifully! It is such a treat. I'm (still) German and grew up in NĂÂźrnberg. I am more than halfway through my studies to become a clinical coder (medizinische Kodierfachkraft in German) and really enjoy working in a hospital setting. Take care and all the best.
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful trip in your day-a-day)! It was lovely to read more about you and what made you happy to begin Autumn!! Beautiful postcard and note card that are already in my stash!!! Great Swap!
Comment: What wonderful PCs you chose to send me for this swap - thank you so much. I absolutely love them all but especially like the sheep in Holland. Thanks again and hope to see you in future swaps ~
Comment: Hello Manuela,
Merci beaucoup pour la grande carte de Turquie et pour avoir ĂÂŠcrit en franĂÂ§ais. Le timbre est trĂÂ¨s beau aussi. C'est pourquoi j'aimerais vous donner plusieurs coeurs mais ce n'est pas possible. Je vous souhaite aussi une trĂÂ¨s belle annĂÂŠe 2007 et beaucoup de jolies cartes dans votre boĂÂŽte aux lettres
Response: TrĂÂ¨s gentil. Merci pour les cĂ âurs!
Comment: Thank you for the letter. I love the quote you put at the end - it is one of my favorites. And thanks for sending along the extras and reading my profile and coordinating the swap according to my profile :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely envie of stamped images! The cow is TOO cute and I really like the nautical theme. I'm shopping around for one I really like right now. Thanks for the update. I'm working on letters now and yours should be on the way this week. Hopefully you have good news to tell me!
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful Envelope!!! Thank you too for the wonderful wooden ornament and the Christmas Washi Tape! (One can never have too much washi-tape) LOL Merry Christmas to you and yours! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you Manuela for the festive colors, Christmas - "Frohes Fest" card you sent to me! It is good to know how you embrace the spirits of Christmas. I'm glad you & your boyfriend are able to travel. Christmas, as you say isn't just about cards, making handmade items, food, drink, etc. It is about seeing the sights, sounds, smells, of Christmas. How others celebrate this season, what makes one smile, laugh, enjoy the moments. It was a thrill for me at Thanksgiving, spent with my family, they took me to the Disney Resort Hotel - The Grand Floridian. Please search online for pictures. This hotel has a tall, tall Christmas tree decorated with bird cages, fake birds, ribbons, ornaments. In the back corner of the huge lobby is a real large Gingerbread House! Its on display, & a sales booth to buy gingerbread, cookies, candies, etc. I hope to go back & see the house again, this time with a camera. The Grand Floridian is the only hotel that has a separate Tea Room in the Vintage Victorian Style. Tea is served in grand style. Happy Holidays to you both!
Comment: Vielen Dank fĂÂźr die hĂÂźbsche Karte und die Sticker! Ich bin ehrlich gesagt auch noch nicht wirklich in Weihnachtsstimmung, aber das wird sich sicherlich nach dem ersten GlĂÂźhwein auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt am Wochenende ĂÂ¤ndern:). Dir auch alles Liebe fĂÂźr die Feiertage und einen guten Rutsch!
Comment: Danke fĂÂźr die wunderschĂÂśne Weihnachtskarte!! Ich wĂÂźnsche Ihnen einen wundervollen Weihnachtszeit!!
Viele grĂÂźsse aus Estland!
(My german is a little rusty. I hope I got it right.
Thank you for the beautiful card and Merry Christmas!!)
Comment: Thank you for the great Christmas card, I loved the artwork! I enjoyed reading your note and don't have any of the washi samples you sent...just lovely! The metallic bird sticker is really cool too! Wishing you the happiest of holidays! Ă˘â˘ÂĽ
Comment: Thank you so much Manuela for your absolutely beautiful postcard and your nice message. Yes, I had no problem at all reading it ;) and ... I *heart* the Little Prince stamp <3 I've seen them before on Instagram and I was wishing to get one ;) Thank you! Wishing you a great weekend ahead, Aline
Comment: Merci beaucoup Manuela pour ta jolie lettre et le swap!Passe une bonne semaine.. je te rĂÂŠpondrai bientĂÂ´t , dĂÂ¨s que j'aurais le coeur ĂÂ ĂÂŠcrire.. lĂÂ pourmoi c'est une pĂÂŠriode de deuil
Comment: Thanks for all the great bits in the wonderful map envelope! I love the PC and the washi tapes are great and I "adore" the rest and the stamp too! LOL It was hard to keep everything under the wt requirements, but this was a fun swap! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thanks for sharing all these answers ... you know what, I never wanted to go back to Fuerteventura after a pretty-boring-cuz-no-money-left-10-days-trip when I was a teen but now that I read your comments ... :)
Thanks for the sweet note, I'm counting the days, keep you all posted! And love the beautiful bookmarks, very nice.
Comment: What an newsy introduction letter you sent! Thank you so much. You are one busy galĂ˘âŹÂŚ how do you find the time to correspond? Loved the postcard that you included, too. Hope between your jobs, you are enjoying a wonderful, warm autumn, to make up for the unusual (& short) summer this year. Loved this idea for a swapĂ˘âŹÂŚ thanks for hosting (oops edit--> LOLĂ˘âŹÂŚ joining) it!
Response: Well...it wasn't me who hosted it ;)
But thank you for your nice rating and heart. I still have enough time left for writing as both jobs are like one fulltime job or so. Yes, I need to plan my time a little more but writing letters is also the best way to relax.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard and the nice stamps! :) We have had a lot of rain and thunder these days, a sudden rain storm can come even 3 or 4 times a day. I do enjoy rain though, if I can be inside at home or enjoy a cup of coffee at a cafĂÂŠ, but when you're walking to work without umbrella, you really wish there was no rain haha. And the reply to your question: I would live in 18th century (Rococo) because I love the fashion of that time! Even though I hear the hygiene was awful. :P Wish you all the best!
Response: Yeah they had awesome clothes back then. Thank you for your rating and heart.
Comment: Hi Manuela! TY for the lovely share, photos and pc! My hubby was so impressed with your photos that he said they are pc quality! What an amazing place - I love the beach, water, relaxing - sounds awesome!! What wonderful Happy Mail you shared with me and it is very appreciated! So how long does it take to travel there for you? Our oldest son received unofficial orders for Germany next year! We are so excited for this next phase of his life but he will be so far from us - sigh! I am thinking of all the wonderful adventures he will have and feeling a tad jealous! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you for your kind rating. Fuerteventura is a little more than four hours by plane from here so it's quite near.
I think it's a great chance for your son and maybe you can visit him...
Comment: Hi Manuela, thanks for the sweet card in my mail box today! I'm doing fine, busy with the house but it's all getting ready for the baby, everything is 'just in time', lol. When the baby is due, the house is due :) And yes, I'm even looking forward to the sleepless nights, but maybe in a few months you have to remind me to keep strong, haha.
Thanks for the nice words, have a great time! Leen x
Comment: Thank you very much. Very nice teabags in lovely envelope. :-D And yes, I was in Freibung a than I was in Sevila if our club play there. :-D IĂÂ´m a fotball fanatic..I also had a wedding in our football pitch. ;-)
Response: So cool to have that kind of wedding. My boyfriend and I met while traveling to a match so we are also quite fanatic. And if we knew before we could have met in Freiburg, I was there, too that day of course.
And of course I'm happy you liked the swap I sent.
Comment: Hi Manuela - Thanks for joining this swap and for sending such a fun envie. Loved how you decorated the outside, too. The lion and cub PC - WOW :D P.S. Thank you also for the airmail labels - fab!
Response: Great you liked it. Thanks for the kind rating and heart.
Comment: I got your package today! OMG! :) What an awesome surprise it was to open this box. I love every piece of it. Diddl notepads are adorable. I can't wait to start writing a letter on the paper you sent to me. And decorate the envelope with my new deco tape :) There was also something for me to practice my German! You are an angel! And yay- KinderUberraschung! One of them is already in my little sister's belly, hehe. She asked me for saying thank you so: DANKE SCHOEN for making mine and my little sister's day such a beautiful and happy one!
Response: Glad you liked it. It was so much fun packing this for you.
Comment: Thank you for the extra cards! I'm sorry about your gerbil - it doesn't take long for our pets to dig deep into our hearts. Wysi had been with us for 20 years so, as you said, she's left a big gap.
Comment: Congratulations on your new Gerbil. My siblings and I had gerbils the whole time we were growing up. They are such fun. It has finally warmed up a bit here and we too have grilled a couple of times. My son is coming over Saturday to smoke a brisket. It takes all day but is worth the wait.
Comment: Hello, I received your AMAZING journal yesterday. It's creative, it's beautiful and it's inspiring. You put a lot of work into this and I really appreciate that. I especially liked the "P" pen paling section with the little envelope and extra letter. That was awesome. Thank you so much. I love it. Have a wonderful day.
Response: I'm so relieved that it arrived. I think this was the swap that I spent most hours on...so I'm also more than happy that you like what I made.
Comment: Thankyou very much Manuela for the lovely introduction of yourself, your letter was very interesting to read, I will definitely send you a reply. Thankyou also for the marvellous postcards and the super selection of postage stamps on and in the envelope :)
Response: Thank you for the nice rating and heart.
Comment: Hello Sternenfee (Manuela Hofmann from Germany). I got you package yesterday! Thank you so much for the items: green tea with lemongrass, elderflower and lemon myrtle box, golden lips balm, almond dream lip balm, vanilla butter soap, cinnamon shower cream bottle, amaranth bar, almond & honey chocolate bar, 70% chocolate mini-bar and milk chocolate mini-bar. Have a great mail day, maria das trouxas
Comment: Manuela- Thank you! I LOVE the postcards! and thank you for the paper! My favorite postcard is the "foie gras" one! love it. I love it so much I was wondering if I could send it back to you in an envie, with some postcards for you. And then would you mind sending the "foie gras" postcard "stamped & naked" back to me? just shows how much I love the postcard! no pressure at all! but if willing send me a message. Thank you for everything!
Comment: I love the PC you picked for "These Dreams!!!" I love the stamp and the washi tape too! I was looking up some more information on my ancestors and in 1855, my Great-great...great grandfather was discharged from "honorable service by the Mecklenburg-Schwerin Army and King Franz II. My husband's and my ancestral families lived 60 miles, 100 K apart in Germany. Here in the USA, our families lived only 30 miles, 50K apart. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thanks Manuela, for the beautiful PC! I can imagine all the work that went into each of those bags of spices and lentils!!! Such lovely colors! I hope you achieve your goals for this year. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Manuela, I love what you sent! I smelled that yummy tea the instant I opened the envelope :) And I was so pleased to get your pretty ATC. It is the very first ATC I've ever had, can you believe that? Thank you so much for everything!
Comment: I love the sunflowers, very cheery to find in my mailbox on an overcast day. Thank you for the compliment on my writing, I tried to make my profile reflect who I am. Do you play soccer or are you just a fan of the game? I like traveling as well but I love coming home the best.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely card and the teas! :) It really put in me a winter mood. Also, great that you named your gerbil Leonie, good choice! :)

Comment: Hi, Manuela. This arrived badly damaged by the Post Office, with no note from you (it must have fallen out). I see that you went overboard with finding interesting chocolates for me! Thank you.
Response: Oh I am so sorry. I really tried to pack it as good as possible...and of course it had a note. Hope you will like the chocolates.
Comment: heyhey, sorry dass das Rating etwas lĂÂ¤nger gedauert hat. Ich bin gestern erst nach 2 Wochen mal wieder heim gefahren..denn ich konnte immer noch nicht umziehen -.- eine ziemlich lange Geschichte :(
Mich freut es auch immer sehr, ein paar deutsche Swapper zu finden :)
Vielleicht werden wir ja irgendwann mal wieder Partner :3
Dein ATC gefĂÂ¤llt mir sehr gut, es schreit nach Mexiko!
Danke nochmal und auch fĂÂźr die tolle organisatorische Arbeit!
Comment: Thank you Manuela for the lovely letter telling me about your pets. I am not familiar with gerbils so it was interesting to read about them. They look so cute! I loved the cat envelopes.
Comment: Hello! Your letter arrived! Thank you for the stickers and postcards, too. Neuschawanstein Castle is my favorite and street view car is also my preference. They really made my day! I'll read your letter and write back! Thank you very much :)
Response: Glad you liked everything. I will be looking forward to your letter.
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your letter. The place where you live sounds very lovely. :) Thank you so much for the ATC items! I was just thinking about how I needed some ATC sleeves! Wonderful swap, thank you! <3
Response: Thanks for the rating. Glad you liked what I sent.
Comment: I am giving you a heart because I enjoyed your swap so much~ your letter was interesting, and you had to write it in English! Yes, that deserves a heart! I was interested to see all your photos, of the post office and your town. Thank you!
Comment: Where to start?!?! This came at the perfect time! I definitely needed a pick-me-up today and you delivered! The pc's, the stationary, the stickers (are so adorable!)

I would just love to meet one of mine someday :) That must have been so exciting. LOLLL that your gerbils scared away the cat, oh dear! I especially liked, "Guess my gerbils said something very nasty to the cat" - heheeee! :) Thank you again and take care!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your creativity and vision. (Also, your willingness to resend!) I really like how the stories felt true to life, how sometimes circumstances can lift people up or pull them down. My fingers are always crossed for the happily ever afters. :)
Comment: Loved my parcel. Had to laugh at the magazine. No idea what it says but why should you have to send in English. I couldn't send in German. Chocolate gone already and I loved the notebook. A very happy parcel. Thanks again
Response: Glad you liked it. Thanks for rating and heart.
Comment: I loved your big dream letter! If you message me your address, I would love to write back as that was my dream for a long time and we worked to make it a reality! Keep dreaming, keep taking small steps and you will get there!

Comment: Awwwww, what a perfect swap - thank you so much! I just loved your cutely decorated envelope and cool bridge stamps. I enjoyed reading your lovely card and about your life (and seeing your handwriting) :) LOL, spoilt gerbils! It was really fun getting the map PC of your area; gives such a nice feel for the place! Sounds like you live in a really nice part of Germany! And then, wow, the papers and labels and sticky notes you sent - THANK YOU! They are all awesome! :) This was such a fun swap to receive - thank you for all you did for me!
Comment: Dankeee fĂÂźr die tolle Karte! Ich hab mich so darĂÂźber gefreut. :) Und ja, ich bin jetzt schon sausĂÂźchtig nach Swap Bot. Vor allem nach den Postkarten Swaps! Gut, dass ich so viele davon hier habe. :) Ohh, du wohnst beim Schwarzwald - da will ich unbedingt mal hin!! Sag mal - was hast du eigentlich gegen Orangen? xD
Liebe GrĂÂźĂĹ¸e aus Bayern, Nika :)
Comment: First of all thanks sooo much for the cat postcard! For the most part you were spot on! I am a little shorter than five six and my hair is medium lengthed and curly and I'm not sure how skinny relatively skinny is, but I like to think I am that haha! Also it's weird because I just got glasses less than a month ago! You could totally go into psychic stuff I bet, but I think they see the future... So maybe you could go into people guessing hahaha! Anyways thanks again for the awesome swap! Hope things are well!
Comment: Vielen Dank fĂÂźr die Karte; ich war schon in Swarzwald, es hat mir viel gefĂÂ¤llt. ich weiss nicht warum du schrreibst, du hast FranzĂÂśsich vergessen, denn es war perfekt! Ich habe auch Deutsch gelernt und war sehr oft in Deutschland, wenn ich im Gymnasium war. Viele GrĂÂźsse.
Comment: Ciao Manuela,
grazie mille per i te che provero' presto e i francobolli. Mi e' piaciuto molto leggere la tua lettera =) e mi piacerebbe organizzare uno swap privato quando vuoi! Un abbraccio!
Comment: Oh Manuela, I loved everything you sent me in this swap. The card, the stickers, the cute post-it-notes. But the story of your life growing up made me so sad for you. Also made me appreciate where I was raised. So glad your life is much better today than it was. Thanks for sharing with me.
Comment: German: Danke meine Liebe, ich habe mich so gefreut als ich vorhin das Postfach geĂÂśffnet habe - ich hatte da noch nicht mit gerechnet ;) Meine Post erhĂÂ¤ltst du nĂÂ¤chste Woche! Liebe GrĂÂźĂĹ¸e und ein tolles Wochenende!
English: Thank you Manu, I'd love the mail I got from you today, esspecially your letter <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the thoughtful items you sent me. My father was German and the ladybird chocolate reminded me of when my Oma used to send those little chocolates when I was a small child. I love everything you sent and would give more hearts if I could.
Comment: Vielen, vielen Dank fĂÂźr das tolle Bild!
Ich habe mich total gefreut (natĂÂźrlich auch ĂÂźber die kleine Notiz und das coole Tape!!) und es hĂÂ¤ngt schon an der Wand ĂÂźber meinem Schreibtisch bei den anderen Swap-Bot-Meisterwerken :) Nochmal tausend Dank, ich wĂÂźnschte ich kĂÂśnnte das mit mehr als einem Herz bewerten!
Comment: Liebe Manu! Vielen Dank fĂÂźr alle deine lieben Briefe, die Karten und die Geschenke!! Meine Katze Kitty hat sich auch sehr ĂÂźber ihre Geschenke gefreut :-) Es war sehr schĂÂśn jede Woche von dir Post zu bekommen und deine Neuigkeiten zu lesen! Ich wuerde mehr Herzen geben, wenn ich kĂÂśnnte! Liebe GrĂÂźĂĹ¸e, Efi
Comment: Manuela, sorry it took so long for me to rate you :/ I kinda am between my parents' and boyfriend's houses lately, and all my swapbot mail goes to my parents, where I am the least (but the mail for his house doesn't always seem to get there, so I left it as my home address.) Thank you so much for the three ATC's, I especially enjoyed the green abstract painting one. Don't be nervous! I love your ATCs, aand they are my first ATCs from a different country, too! Thank you! I'm still pretty new to these ATCs too, but the only thing I'd recommend is maybe sending a description of how you made each trading card too, so that if a reciever likes the technique, they will be able to replicate it :) Thank you! On a side note, my mother is a Hoffman. Alternate spelling, true, but we all know how the Americans on Ellis Island messed up all sorts of surnames of inbound immigrant families. I know that they are of German heritage, though. :)
Response: Relieved that you liked them...I tend to have low self esteem with everything I do. Anyway. Here in Germany exist Hoffmann and Hofmann, I know that in America most people don't have the second "n"...
Comment: thank you for the wonderful pkg. I want to write back but can not read you address clearly. if you will contact me through swap bot I will be happy to write back. Your new pen pal.
Comment: Manuela, thank you for the lovely postcard of the tree covered in snow. What a gorgeous place to live, but maybe a little on the cold side if you prefer summer! Have a great 2013 as well. Regards, Cynthia
Response: Well of course I would prefer the south but my place is warm in summer, too.
I especially loved this portion of your quiz "I love to travel, I'm always interested in getting to know other people, learn about ne[w] cultures and so on." ME TOO! (0= Thanks for swapping! Ă˘â˘ÂĽdebbie
