Comment: Hi Nancy! What a cute flip book! Thank you so much & for spoiling me with all those goodies :-) I love the postcard that you sent too...I hung it on my fridge where I put all my lovelies that I like to look at often (heart).
Comment: Beautiful ATC. I love the different elements you chose. Thank you for creating it for me. I also like the butterfly washi you used on the envelope. I think it is awesome you sister hatches monarchs. I have a butterfly garden but the main plant they would grow is no longer there. So I haven't seen too many recently. Take care.
Comment: Hi Nancy and thank you for these super cute Halloween themed mini file folders. This was a fun and easy project and these turned out so well. Love your colors - purple is such a great color for Halloween along with the traditional orange and black. And thanks for the fun little goodies you tucked inside. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you Nancy - I received your Pocket Letter today. I absolutely love it! I agree that pastel colours can make you feel cooler somehow. I absolutely love Pocket Letters too. Thanks for joining this swap! Happy swapping! Annabelle xoxoxo 💜💌🥰
Comment: Thank you for the letter! I'm unable to go to Vegas. My epilepsy has a very low seizure threshold, and Vegas seems determined to be a place of peril for people like me. My parents decided to take my sisters and I to Circus Circus when I was a teenager, and it didn't go well. I hope you have a good time. Oh, I use a typewriter to do 99% of my writer due to chronic pain in my wrist making it impossible to write more than a couple sentences before it just becomes a sort of wavy line. Do what works best for you!
Comment: Oh my goodness, your farm & animals sound delightful! That's pretty much my dream life! My husband & I are building on some land & hope to get to that point eventually. And guess what- I used to have a little orange tabby named Lucky, too! We had him since the day he was born (his mama had him in our shed) & he lived to be 14. He was the best cat. I have a soft spot for orange tabbies. :) I hope you'll have better luck with your garden next year. And you never have to apologize for typing- I have RA, so I have to as well. Thanks for the cute notecard, too. :)
Comment: Thank you for the cute note card and for sharing with me about Lucky! I was cracking up reading about antics between the bird and cat...lol Thanks for the Washi samples too. Hope that bird either leaves Lucky alone or suffer the consequences.
Comment: Awwww Nancy! What a special swap to receive from you! For one, I love the envelope you made! The texture is really nice and it is so pretty! For two, thanks so much for the cute kitty stickers! And lastly, wow I loved reading about your trip to Nashville!! I'm really glad you got to experience the area beyond the usual Broadway tourist visit. I go to Sunflower Cafe every now and then. Their cupcakes are DIVINE and they make some of the best smoothies in town! And your memory of cleaning your floors with your mom and sisters was so cute! I didn't really grow up with country music so for me, the equivalent was cleaning while my mom put on tropicales music. I've never been to Oak Grove because I prefer table games to slots and the nearest casino with that is all the way in Illinois. :( Anyways, I love your attitude about all of your travels and I wish you many, many more memorable adventures with your loved ones <3
Comment: Thank you for the one sheet wonder swap. I really like the scrapbooking paper that you used along with the flower stamps. You mentioned that you were concerned about the postage. No problem . . . all went well. The envelope, however, made it by a hair. The bottom piece broke apart with the exception of a small section.
Comment: This tag is great! I love the quote about tea!! That background is very special.. you put this all together so nicely and I am so happy it’s mine! Thank you for the lovely papers and nice envelope as well!!
Comment: Holy cow, you put a whole notebook into an envie! I am so impressed, plus feeding my notebook addiction! The tags you sent are also super cute! Out of everything you sent, I enjoyed your note the most ❤ reading about your goats and donkey was so entertaining ❤❤❤
Comment: Wow! Just, wow! First off, the packaging of this swap, from the decorated envie, to the pretty pocket that held all the goodies, it was all so special! (You even made cute little bands to hold the seed packets, I just can not!) Thank you for spending the time and effort to make it special. Also, thank you for all the goodies (and the special tip about zinnia in Texas gardens!). I look forward to using all the goodies and cannot wait to see the flowers that beautify my garden :D ♡♡♡♡♡
Comment: Dear Nancy, Happy mail arrived today from you! The envie wasn't even postmarked. Lol Thank you for your type written letter (of course I don't mind!) and the cute bakery stationary and deer photo card. It's great to hear from you and what's going on at your farm. Aww your baby goat "Cooper" is adorable!
My Yuki Maru just turned 18! All our animals live to be pretty old. ❤️ Hope you enjoyed being "on vacation" and your new cell phone! I will enjoy using the stationary. Thank you!
Comment: Thanks, the perspective of this Van Gogh repro kind of reminds me of Grandma Moses’ work somehow, I guess there maybe was some overlap of their lifetimes .. also enjoyed the fun way you gussied up the card with Washi and little stickers & the cowboy boot/spur stamp! It’s hot here off/on, then gets cold too — hope you have a wonderful summer!
Comment: Hi Nancy! Thank you for the lovely flower pc! Dang that is so warm already but as you mentioned having AC helps soooo much! We got hot and turned it on, now the weather is cool again - as we say in the Midwest - if you don't like the weather, stick around as it is sure to change - many times in one day! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you so much for your great Las Vegas postcard :-) Visiting Las Vegas is one of the things I want to do once in my life, and I just searched for the Bellagio Conservatory online. Now I want to go even more:-) Thank you so much for sharing <3
Comment: Great swap-right from the North Dakota map piece on the envelope to the ATC honoring your home state. And even the stamp when with the Texas theme! Thanks for sharing! Take care and stay safe!
Comment: Thanks for the fantastic pc’s and the thoughtful note and envelope decor! I really love the FL one especially. We really are close to one another. I looked up your town and see that you aren’t tooooo far from the Humane Society. I used to work there many moons ago!
Comment: Wow, just WOW! What an amazing treat in my mailbox. First of all, it is beautifully made. Incredible. Secondly, the goodies. WOW, you spoiled me! It was so fun to open each little pouch and find goody after goody. Thank you so much for taking the time to make me something so wonderful!
Comment: Thanks Nancy! I hope Lucky is doing well! Our next door neighbor cat is named Lucky, but we call her Moose(short for mustachio) because she’s black and white with a white moustache on her face. Jenny
Comment: Thank you. I have been to see the lighthouse on Boliver Peninsula. I lived in Galveston for a few years way back when I first moved to Texas. I have wonderful memories of the Texas Gulf Coast. Trips on the ferry to Boliver Peninsula is one of them. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the resend. I love the decorated envelope! Such a cool thing. I never get creative ideas about my envelopes.
I really liked your note as well. I hope the cookies tasted good at least.
Comment: Hi Nancy! These little seed packets are just lovely. And . . . LOVE that you included actual packets of seeds in each little pocket! The little Easter bunny is so cute. Many thanks for a very nice swap!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful envie with Alice In Wonderland on the front. I always know it will happy mail when I see wonderful characters in my mailbox. Loved all the little goodies tucked in with my TX roadmap envie!! xxMuggleMom
Comment: I LOVE this paper!! I waited so impatiently for it to release because as soon as I saw the preview I knew I needed it!! It's totally my style and gives me great ideas for my watercolor art. Thanks so much for these nice pockets and tags. Awesome swap!
Comment: Love the beautiful note and stickers Nancy! Thank you! Texas is dominating the news and I think it's safe to assume that you are having a hard time right now. Hope that you are not suffering too greatly and that things improve soon.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard!🌸 Washington is on my list to travel next, and now I’m more eager to travel there once it’s safe. I also enjoyed singing along to the song in your postcard, beauty and the beast is one of my favorite Disney movies!♥️
Comment: Hi Nancy! Thank you for the fun address labels - yep, I am a reader, so I love them! Also thank you for the pcs - a girl can never have too many (well that is not what my family thinks, but...)! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Totally agree with you on never having too many pcs! :-)
Comment: Thank you so much for your answer. I have only been to Las Vegas once and I wish I could go again! I would love to go to the ocean again. Thank you for the wonderful extras - I am very excited to put the papers into my Journal. 💗
Comment: Thank you for the Christmas card. Yes, I do love the animals around baby Jesus. It is the essence of Christmas:) Thank you for the extras. The mini notebook is one of my favorite things I have received lately. Thank you and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
No, I'm not familiar with Anamosa, IA, although I was born in IA and live here now, I didn't actually grow up here, so there are a lot of places I don't know. However, I do have family in Austin and Houston, so it's interesting that you are near there as well.
Comment: This is such an AWESOME swap!! Thank you SO much! I LOVE the map to Disney Theme you did!! Everything is PERFECT for me and i absolutely LOVE THIS!! it will go so perfectly in my Disney Journal!!
Have a great weekend!!
Comment: Hi Nancy,
It’s nice to run into you again. I think we connected once before. My sister lives in Animosa and I too use to live in Cedar Rapids(: hope life is well in Texas. Happy Thanksgiving! Debbie
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful profile-specific envie or randomness! Love everything you enclosed, especially the buttons. (I'm such a sucker for cool & unique buttons.) I look forward to incorporating the goodies into my ATCs. Stay safe & healthy!
Comment: Wow! I love what you did! I make Christmas cards for all my family so I can use the goodies in the flat mail, too!! Another gal and I have been making Victorian Christmas ornaments for our local historical society's gift shop... lots of fun!
Comment: If I could give you more hearts I would :D I loved the lil pouch you made for everything. I need to figure it out now and replicate it for the future.
Thank you for the washi, stickers, papers, recipe card ! AND the key lime pie recipe that you included. :) I have to send that on to my Grandma, She loves Key Lime Pie
Comment: Wow! Such goodies!! I love going through everything, esp the tea! yum.Napkin is beautiful, as is all the papers and bookmarks! Yes you made me happy with this swap!Oh, I see the recipes, I was just going to make pasta salad, now I have to run get some shrimp!!LOL
Comment: 💕Thank you for the amazing happy mail and for reading my profile. I loved the pretty envelope. I am looking forward to using the fun goodies for Happy Mail. I appreciate the thought you put into the swap. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! I love the envelopes! You did a great job on them. I'm always reading so I always need a book mark. And the Van Gogh I think I will go frame it, it speaks so much right now. Thank you again~!
Comment: Thank you for the P.L. cards, I am happy to say I don't have these. :) I recently learned about these cards and have been using them in greeting cards and mini "journals" that I am learning how to make. Thank you for adding to my stash and take care!
Comment: The weather is just perfect here right now, and the trees are just starting to change!!! I love Fall, especially here!!! Yes, we do get snow, just haven't had as much as I am use to...I moved from Ohio 3 years ago. I lived in the secondary snow belt there, so we always got lots of snow!!! We're hearing that this is suppose to be a bad one, so we shall see!!!
Comment: Happy Fall to you as well, Nancy! Yes, it has been cooler but then this week, it's been in the high 70's. Next week though - back down into the mid 60's and lower. Brrr! Not ready for winter at all. We have gotten our 1st snow fall before in October, and if not then - November pretty much is the month though in a really good year - it might not be till December but then that rarely ever happens. Not near enough for me anyways! Ha! Ha! (Thanks for your profile hello you left. 😀)
Comment: Thanks for the nice envelope of goodies! I have an angel trumpet flower/plant too. My mom grew it from seeds from her plant. It is a very pretty and unusual looking plant. I am not very good at gardening but I always try. Have a great weekend!
What a fun and well presented swap. I loved it from inside and out! Thank you!
My sister lives in Anamosa, super familiar. (: I imagine your sisters gone through a lot being in Cedar Rapids-hopefully she has power and everything she needs by now? Our damage wasn’t as horrible (we are in the Des Moines metro) but still loads of damage everywhere. It will take awhile to clean up for sure. Thanks for caring! 💕
Comment: Hello Nancy, thank you for the Blue Cat PC!
Your card has a postage stamp from North Houston, TX of Jan 13, 2020 and only arrived in my mailbox this morning! I guess your PC took the scenic route to Canada. 😅
I hope you are well & having a good summer!
Comment: It sure was a delight to open your envelope. I really liked how you decorated your homemade envelope to reflect a map of pa and where I live, circled. I also love how you put the items together in another envelope. Thank you for everything. This was a joy to obtain.
Comment: What a wonderful envie! The map on the front not only shows Tulsa, where I live now, but also Wichita, where I was born and lived for 10 yrs! I love all of the goodies you included--thanks bunches! Wish I could give you lots of hearts!
Comment: Aww sorry you had to sell your Alpacas byt I get it... Texas heat is NOT the Andes mountains LOL!! Thank you for the goodies!! I appreciate them and will use them all in my journals and crafts! <3 These are really fun swaps! Stay Cool!! x Gabi
Comment: Hi Nancy! Thank you for the lovely check in and all the goodies! So sweet of you! I so agree that the dang virus needs to go away and now they are talking another lock down - yikes!! I so miss being able to just makes plans and go for it, sigh! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hello Nancy! Thank you so much for sharing the picture of your baby goat in his coat! Made me smile so big he or she is SO CUTE! sounds like you will have a wonderful time with all 8! Happy swapping my friend! <3
Comment: Sorry for the very late rating...this got archived before I put the rating in and I was just getting ready to use one of the notecards and could remember if I'd rated the package. It is AWESOME! I don't get much for xmas so I put your package under the tree and opened it Christmas Day. Thank you, thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the JUST RANDOMNESS swap! I love the cute tags, the washi samples, especially the rainbow chevron washi😀, i already used it:-). thank you for the notebook paper as well, i put it in my smash book. the handmade envelope made it extra special!❤️
Comment: Thanks so much for the Neuschwanstein PC! I had an opportunity to go there on my senior trip, but the only way to get there that day was to hike up, as I remember. I bought a little Goebel swan in a gift shop instead. So happy to now have a PC too! ❤️
Comment: Too funny - I sent a card too that I didn't think was "yuk" but it wasn't my style. I haven't seen really too many cards that were horrible but just some I didn't care for enough to keep them. lol
Comment: Thank you so much Nancy. Your notecard was so gorgeous and the sweet tuck in you added for me (fairy postcard) really took my breath away by how beautiful it was. Thank you so so very much. So thoughtful and really made me smile <3
Comment: Oh WOW! How cool is that?? I've never seen this sort of thing with the connected envies before. So creative and such fun. AND travel related just for me! Squeal. Such a lovely swap. Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Very pretty card! Did you know the Papyrus stores are closing? I was just there today, only 20% off right now. I'm in the CLT area too, I wonder if I possibly might know your daughter?! How crazy would that be?!
Comment: Thank you! Everything you included is going to be very useful, the Disney stickers are going in my collection album and the panda postcard might just go up on my wall, it’s too cute to send out! :D thank you for everything.
Comment: Thanks so much for the fun swap...I’ve been looking for health/fitness stickers so I absolutely loved those and OMG...a Halloween decorated envie in January 💜🤗...what a delightful surprise...this swap really put a smile on my face and I loved all of it...thank you so much
Comment: Absolutely love the mini bag you made. I will definitely use the items in future projects that I do for myself. I am in the middle of doing a collage and have some earmarked for that already. Thanks again for doing a great job.
Comment: Love your choices... Dutch, State Stone (I’ve had a rock collection since I was 10yo.), Ircas Island. I’ll be googling the island! Almost missed the washi’s. Thank you and your Christmas sounds like heaven on earth :D. My sons and parents slept over 2 nights. Great fun and too much food! Hugs!
Comment: Thank you so very much from this lovely card, and resending, it's so kind of you. The USA christmas stamps are very beautiful and I really like how matching everything is. Thank you again, and happy New Year!
Comment: (⊃｡•́‿•̀｡)⊃━☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ Hi again Nancy! Thank you for the beautiful Christmas Card. I am so happy that you love chickens. Your farm sounds lovely! The farm animals stickers are so cute! I am especially touched by your genuine and meaningful handwritten note that required some of your undivided attention and quality time. I am sincerely touched. Thank you. Yes, Jesus is the reason for the Season! Blessings to your and your family. 💖❥💞❦💕❧💗♡💓♥️❤️❤💘ღ💝❣💘💚💟💙💜💛 εїз Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ ❤ ƸӜƷ εїз xoxo Lora
Comment: Hi Nancy! Thank you so much for the card and the photograph of your lovely church! It is so idyllic looking! I really appreciate your note and card and comments since my daughter was complaining to me (about me) just before I got it!
My mood brightened right up! I hope to get you again in a swap soon! 💕💕
Thanks for your thoughtfulness!
Comment: Thanks for the postcards. They are just the sort Postcrossing people ask for. (Once I sent a postcard in a swap to the person who'd sent me the postcard. Now I set aside postcards I receive in swaps so I don't do that again.)
Response: I think it is ok to send to someone that sent to you. It is truly the thought that counts, right? Enjoy your day! (and everyday too!)
Comment: Thank you for the cute dog pictures on the ATCs. I have had dogs in the past but now I only have a cat. The ones we had the longest were Snoopy a little terrior mix who we had for 10 years. Then the 2 Great Danes - Cindy and Cannibal. I think we had them for 5 or 6 years, I don't remember exactly.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Washi, I absolutely love Girls Just Want to Have Fun and can see it being used on my scrapbook pages very soon! Thank you for the extras and I sent you a question about them because I love them so much. Thank you
Comment: Nancy! Thank you so much for the amazing envelope! I love the stickers you sent to me. Also, I love that you have chickens, too! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the postcard of the hen you included as well! How thoughtful. Hugs, Jill
Comment: Thank you for your mail! I thought about picking up the habit of reading recently, so the bookmarks you sent to me will definitely help :) Also thanks for your warm message, cute animal stickers, memos and nail jewels!
Comment: Hi Nancy! Very nice swap, thank you! :):):) I think our weekends were very similar, though I didn't get as much cleaning done as I wanted. I hope your husband had a great trip. :):):) I don't miss snow, either. My kids always whine and wish they had some to play in, though. They don't realize how COLD it is. :):):) Today was our first day that kind of felt like fall. It was only 80 ;) THANKS!
Comment: How nice to hear from a fellow Astros fan, and one who lives just around the corner from me! Thanks for the tea, I'm glad to add it to my stash... And thanks also for the extra PC - I know just who I'm going to send it to!
Comment: Thank you Nancy! I love the postcards you choose for me! Especially the Rosario Resort. Very nice! I have a bunch of postcards for on trips taken. But have so few & so won't part with them, lol ! Was great to get to swap with you! Forgot something, My sister in law ( hubby's sister) will appreciate the Elvis postcard. She loves him so much!
