Comment: Mel- you sent such an awesome swap to me. If the 1st one ever arrives, I will def let you know.
The teas and stickers were so nice of you to include. I really appreciate your kindness. You really know how to spoil your partners! Beautiful envelope art :)
Thank you!! -Ashley
Comment: Thank you for the lovely resend and letter and all the extra goodies that, while not necessary, where much appreciated. I shall enjoy a cup of your tea while writing you back when I get the chance!
Comment: Thanks for the fun junk journal supplies. I will be happy to close out my 2020 journal with some items you sent. Won’t be able to add all to my journal. But leftovers can go in my seasonal supplies storage container for next year.
Response: Oh thank GOD you got it! I am so relieved. This mail stuff is going to be the death of me! Thank you so much for the rating and the heart. I hope all is well with you and your loved ones. I say bring on 2021! Lol.
Comment: Thank you for the resend! It is crazy how mail is right now. I know some of mind people are waiting on. I sent a Birthday card to FL the end of July, and it still didn't arrive! I enjoyed your letter because I knew some of the area real well you were writing about. Thank you for all the fun goodies!
Response: You are VERY welcome and I am so relieved that this one got to you. I actually just made a post in the public forums about the mail. It seems like the problems are mainly with flat mail. (At least in my case.) I hope your birthday card reaches its destination soon. That is a LONG time! Thank you so much for your lovely rating and comment. :o)
Comment: Hi! Thank you so, so much for the adorable happy mail and the awesome stickers, I love them so much! The extras you included were so sweet of you, and I love the handmade lil envelope you put the goodies inside. I love everything!! Thank you!!!
Response: You are welcome. :o) I am so glad you are happy with everything. Have a beautiful day and thank you for your nice rating and comment. (((Hugs)))
Comment: Hi HappyMailMel, I finally sat down and open some of my happy mail lol. Yours was one of the package I opened, I just want to say I've done quite a bit of junk journal swaps on here and it's definitely a hit and miss sometimes. I love junk journaling and I like bright happy things. Gosh the goodies you sent me are all amazing! Definitely the type of stationery stuff I like full of gold foil, kawaii, bright pastel colors! You must have an amazing stationery stash lol. I really like the silver accented cherry blossom/sakura half sheet of paper you sent me, can you tell me where it's from? It is very pretty! Thank you for your letter, I appreciate the time you took out of your day to write me a handwritten letter :). Thank you so much!
Response: Hi there! :o)
I am so glad you are happy with what I sent. I admit... I have quite a huge stash (I have a paper problem!) Lol. I got that origami paper from either Etsy or Ebay. I will try to find the seller and send you their info. In the meantime, I am your partner for the bullet journal supply swap so I will send you some full sheets with that. :o) Thank you so much for your kind rating and the lovely comment. (((Hugs)))
Comment: It arrived so fast! Sorry for delay in rating. I LOVE the ATC!!! I love the colors and his face and it reminds me of Miss Spider, which was a fav when my kids were small. THANK YOU! I understand why that postman has your ATC framed on his wall and threw aside his ethical postman code to steal it. The extras you included are AWESOME. Like, seriously awesome. I am so excited to make stuff with them. The vintage postcards are treasures. Your envelope is so beautiful, too. THANK YOU! And thank you for hosting!! :):):)
Comment: Hi Mel,
I want to thank you for all your efforts to receive me this letter! 😘🌺 There was so much trouble with the post service but Mel always gave her best to receive me her letter! 🤗🤗🤗 She even send a new one! I am pretty sure we are going to start this penpal! ☺️
Best wishes to you,
Response: Hey hon... did you get the second one yet? I am a little confused by your comment. I feel like you are rating me without receiving and I would not feel right about that. I am hoping you DID receive, but if not, please message me and let me know. I am really looking forward to writing with you.
Comment: This was an amazing swap! Firstly, thank you for making two of the slams for me. Secondly, you are so creative! Your slams are gorgeous! And finally, thank you for the extra washi. Best swap I've had in a long time :)
Comment: Hi Mel, What a wonderful collection of extras!💗💜💕❤️ Your envelope was also cheerful! Will write back to you and include a few pages from my favorite magazines. I subscribe online but they do come in port format and you can view their websites online but you won’t find them at the grocery store!
Comment: Thanks for hosting this swap-it was a fun new idea in ATC's! Love the one you sent-great use of pieces-words and music. Thanks also for the wonderful extra goodies you sent-love them all-you really did read my profile-THANK YOU!
Comment: 😳OH MY GOODNESS 😳 WOW!!! Girl you went above and beyond on this swap! What an awesome assortment of J&A supplies. I am going to go back through it because I’m sure I missed something. The patterns are great, those pages with vintage photos, I love them!! The doilies, napkins & tissue paper all pretty! Thank you so much! I see lots of creativity in that swap!! ❤️❤️❤️
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful goodies! I just adore all the cat paper and washi. And I LOVE the cat antidepressants. Sooo cute! And I love your letter. So many amazing things! But maybe... too many? I'm guessing Ju-lied about your July. Let me know!
Response: Hahaha! Ju are correct! In reality I have not left home since March! I am so glad you enjoyed it, though and that you liked what I sent. :o) Thank you so much for the kind rating and the heart. <3
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely swap! I too have the informed delivery. I didn't sign up for it until the pandemic started so that I knew when to stop in for a mail p/u hehe. I am glad that you enjoyed participating! Thank you for the extras also!!
Comment: Thank you once again for an amazing swap! It was really like opening a bunch of small presents at once, and I enjoyed it a lot! The ice cream letter set is absolutely adorable. Hope you're doing well and thanks for being a great swap partner!!
Comment: You were so lucky to be my partner for 3 swaps so here is another 5❤ rating for you as I loved reading all your "would you rather".. answers. They were similar to mine, what a coincidence don't you think 🌸 I would love to have you as my partner for many more swaps to come as you're the best.
Comment: Wow what an amazing envie. I really loved everything you sent me. The butterscotch blondie tea is delicious (if you ever want to do a private tea swap you know where to find me). The lace and fabric sample are amazing for my project. Love the postcards, recipe cards, memo sheets and all the others. Thank you so much ❤ you really made my day 😘
Comment: Wow! This swap was super duper cute! Hehe Thank you for taking the time to make such an amazing swap. 😁 I also really appreciate the letter you sent along with it and I promise to write you back! :) I wish i could give you a ton of hearts for making my day! 💕 ♥️ Thank you again~
Comment: I just want to start off by saying I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this swap!! You went above and beyond, and everything you gave me was so kawaii! You even gave me some memos that I've been looking for so thank you so much! I actually continued this swap and there's a Kawaii Mail #2 currently up if you'd like to sign up again!
Response: I am so glad you are happy with what I sent. As you know, I am in the 2nd one as well... and we are partners once again! Lol. Thank you for the rating and heart. :o)
Comment: So sorry to hear about the fur babies. My cat and kittens ran away it seems. Then a deer on the land a baby fawn passed away. It was heartbreaking. All of this in a week's time. I hope you will be well and find solace in this disheartening time. Take care and stay well.
Comment: Such a fun envelope to open up today!! Thank you so much for all the kawaii goodies! I already used a couple of the stickers in my journaling for today. And the teas sound so yummy, I can't wait to try them! Hope you are having a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love them so much! Especially the chocolate one- I recognize it! Aldi has such good chocolate! The tea one is so lovely, and strawberries! So pretty!! That is the first zentangle one I have gotten. And I love the layers on the Kawaii one. I LOVED swapping with you, thanks so much!
Comment: I cannot even express how much I loved this (although I tried in my reply lol) even the envelope was wonderful!!!! I wish I could give a million hearts for how it made me feel. My reply is already in the mail, so happy to have started our new friendship!!! 💜💜💜
Comment: I received your parcel and letter a couple of days ago, thank you! The washi samples are beautiful and I really enjoyed the letter, too. I appreciate the detail and I will reply a little bit later, since there were some neat conversation starters that I'd love to continue, if that's OK.
Response: Thank you so much! I am so glad you liked it and I would LOVE to be penpals with you! <3
Comment: Hi Mel! I got my package today and it was AHHHMMAAAZZZINNNGG!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Thank you again!
Response: Hi there! :o)
Awww, I am so glad you like what I sent! Thank you so much for the sweet comment, rating and heart. You stay safe too!
Comment: Your letter was delightful and so very pretty. The paper has such a sweet vintage look which I love, yellow is one of my favorite colors. All the extras are great ! I love the stickers and especially the washi tape with words. I'm so intrigued with the Washi For You, thank you so much for such a great swap.
Response: You are very welcome! I am so glad you liked everything. :o) Thank you so much for rating and for the heart. <3
Comment: I'm in love with this envelope, I have been messing with it all evening! You put a lot into swaps and I love that. I would love to swap again sometime. I have a stash of really old paper I'd love to share.
Response: That would be AWESOME! I would love to do another swap. :) I am glad you like what I sent. <3
Comment: Hello Mel,
Wow is all I can say about this swap! You did an outstanding job! I loved your decorated Sloth envie.
Your stationary was so vintage looking & pretty.
There wasn't a song on your play list that I did not like.
The patriotic dog/flag card I will use to send a note to my son who is in the Army.
Stickers of donuts & coffee made me want donuts with my morning coffee.
And I just ooooed & aaahed over the personalized book marker that you sent me!
Llama washi tape! I'm in Happy Mail Heaven!
AND 2 new teas to try!
Consider yourself hugged!
I will be answering your kind letter.
Response: Hi Ellie! Sorry for my delay in responding. I am soooo happy that you liked what I sent you and also super-excited that you will be writing back! I can't wait to hear from you! BIG hugs! <3
Comment: Thanks Mel, I totally agree with you on The Secret Garden and Where the Wild things are. I’m intrigued by the ‘lives left behind, suitcases in the attic’, I’m going to look for that one. Thanks for your thoughtful list. Best wishes Jane xx
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comment, Jane and also for the rating and heart. :) Yes! Do check out that book... it is very interesting and is actually about an asylum not far from where I used to live. <3
