Comment: Thank you for the nice note. I hope you are enjoying your class at the park. Sounds like fun. Thanks for the extra note also. I didn’t know anyone from that school, but it was a terrible thing that happened.
Comment: Thank you for the typewriter notecard. I have a real typewriter at home. I have been swap-bot for only a month and half but you are already the second person who lives within a few miles from my home ;-)
Comment: I laughed out loud while I was reading your note. I can definitely see why you have no use for this note card, haha! ♥ I'll try to find some way to use it in your stead, since I really do love the cardstock it's on~
Comment: Congratulations to your son and new daughter-in-law! Also, this card made me a laugh a bit. My boyfriend is from New York and never shuts up about good NY pizza, lol. I'll have to show him this! Thank you for sending!
Comment: I received a lovely note card with some lovely stickers inside of it. It was such a nice card to receive and had awesome information. She recommended a fantastic blog. Thank you so much for everything!
Comment: I'd delighted you sent this "starry night" and not the one with the swirls - to me this is much lovelier.
I hope you'll go to my profile and check out my "website" and maybe find it interesting
Comment: Thanks for the swap and the lovely PC.
Interesting that your hummingbirds like you lavender. We have several lavender and I have never seen ours at any of them. Perhaps I should pay more attention..
Comment: Thanks for sharing aobut your virtual event. I went to the website this morning and I think I may join a virtual challenge. I never knew anything like this existed until I read it on your postcard.
Comment: Thanks for sharing about your weekend. So exciting to be able to attend the party. One of my first jobs out of high school was working at the history museum in town. Sundays were slow and boring!
Comment: Hi Marjoleine, I've been doing a little cleaning up and thought I had rated your swap, but I missed it. My sincere apologies! Thank you so much for the extra post-card you sent. I've already sent it out to someone. It was beautiful. All the best to you. Vita Lynné
Comment: Hello! I received the traveling postcards today! I hope that you receive yours back😀You will have to let me know .... I hope in the far future I get mine back as well because how neat to have a traveling postcard all over! Take care and happy holidays!
Comment: Hi Marjoleine,
Thank You very much, I enjoyed reading your letter and I think the surprise you sent is great! I do love washi ❤
Do you miss quilting? This week I have been hand stitching a project and it's a fun and a very satisfying thing. I'd forgotten how soothing it is to sew. But I don't miss quilting. 😁 -Small projects! Works so much better for me.
I hope your knitting continues to go well. Knitting is so very useful. I admire knitters, I am an almost adequate knitter, better than just a scarf but not a sock maker.... I had to turn my last sock attempt into a hand puppet.
Happiness and Peace to you
Comment: Thank you for the pizza postcard! I feel your pain, I miss pizza too. I have Alpha-Gal allergy and can't have any meat or milk products from mammals.... so no cheese for me! I do eat Daiya pizza every once in a while... but they just don't hit the spot like a good, cheesy pizza!
Comment: Thank you for the PC and answering the prompt. I hope you get to see your children & grands soon I have the same problem and haven't seen my 2 daughters & their family in 2 or so years due to this virus.
Comment: Dankjewel Marjoleine ! Hoe Nederlands kun je t hebben ? Ik vind t inderdaad ook altijd leuk om post in het Nederlands/uit Nederland te ontvangen. Nogmaals bedankt, veel groetjes uit Frankrijk !
Comment: Hi Marjoleine! What a cute notecard! Thanks for the share about your weekend - I hope you find the perfect Mimosa sooner than later! We love them here, they used to be for special brunches but now we have them for often! LOL! What is your favorite mix? OJ, cranberry juice or something else? Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: That's funny that there are no cars in the parking lot. Something funny about this card is that for a week straight it showed up on my informed delivery stuck to another letter (that wasn't for my address). So every day for one whole week your postcard and another letter took a ride around Greenville stuck to each other.
Comment: THANK you! I absolutely adore the tiger note card. I had to smile about a few things on you list such as, wear cute clothes and make up. I looked down the other day after running errand and found that my clothes didn't even come close to matching and I hadn't even brushed my hair. Just pulled it up. I need to add that to my 2021 list. THANKS
Comment: I see the cutest tiny elephant post it note inside. Just so cute! Thank you for the very nice post cards. My favorite is the San Francisco Bridge, then the Yellowstone one. Enjoy Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for.
Comment: Great prompt Marjoleine! Thank you for the wonderful prompt. I agree with your prompt. This has been such a difficult year. Even swaps have been somewhat strange and people not able to express themselves well. So many groups i am in not even had swaps running now for months. We are going thru hell! That os for sure! Now the election here that is going to take place soon. What next is what people are asking! Stay strong and well!
Comment: Hi Marjoleine! I have to tell you that your nc just made my day! The zebra is so awesome looking and it is the symbol of a cancer that I have had - love it! I am sorry it was so hot that you did not feel like doing much over the weekend - that happens here as well and makes me very thankful for the AC! Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Marjoleine, I am happy you came back to swap-bot! I love your note and the sticker and notecard you included with the moon on it. It's beautiful! I really hope you are well and that you remember, today, how awesome you are.
Comment: Love the snail mail notecard! :) Glad you're still able to dance. Our Farmer's Market has an hour for seniors and high-risk individuals, as well and I'd assume that people would just be respectful of that. Hang in there! And hope your veges are getting a good start! ♥
Comment: Hi Marjoleine! Thank you for the fun share about your weekend! What a good friend you are to help with not one dance class but two! The yarn swap sounds interesting, I keep thinking I want to learn how to crochet - really just hearts for swaps but so far have not taken on another hobby, as I am not sure how the hubby would react! LOL! Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Wat grappig om uit de US een kaart in het Nederlands te krijgen! Hoe kom je daar zo terecht? En nog vrijwilliger in een museum ook -- super zeg :) Welk museum is dat? Ik was in 1993 in (oa) San Francisco, toen was de aardbeving van '89 "pás" geweest...
Response: Mijn man werkt hier, we zijn alle twee Nederlanders.
Mijn museum is Los Altos History Museum.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty SFO card! I'll have to ask my son about some of those Netflix shows as I've never watched a one of them! Right now I'm getting thru 3 seasons of True Detective on HBO, myself.
Comment: Thank you for the elephant card. They are also among my favorites. I love to watch the 2 we have at our zoo. I will be sad after they have passed. Cora our Asian is 61 and Tembo the African is 47. Both close to their respective life spans.
Comment: I so thoroughly enjoyed reading your letter today. So fun to see the pictures of places referenced in your weekend recap. I also love the blanket you are making - such a creative idea. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you for the resend Marjoleine! I've never been to one but the Renaissance Faire's have always seemed interesting to me, sounds like great fun! Thank you for the lovely tuck-ins, have a great day :)
Comment: Hello Marjoleine,
Thank you very much for your beautiful postcard. It made me very happy! I visited the city where you grew up, and also San Francisco... both so wonderful places but I can understand that you enjoy living in a quiet town!
Greetings from Germany!
Comment: Thank you for your letter . All the voluntary work you do for your community, what a blessing you are to your community. I so enjoyed your letter and quite envious of all the things you do. Again sorry for the late rating but you understand why. Happy swapping.
Comment: I loved your beautiful postcard! Wow, I'm impressed on your language knowledge!! I wish I could knit, but I am into painting on canvas. I use to dance til my back got bad!!LOL Thank you again!!
Comment: Hello kinda neighbor! I actually have family in the same area in Mountain View. I love going to see shows at the Shoreline Amphitheater. The traffic here in the Bay is the worst traffic I have ever seen. Literally, nothing stresses me out as much as the traffic & drivers here! One time I left SF (the Marina district) and it took me 90 minutes to get back to Sausalito... less than 20 miles away! Knitting sounds nice. I never learned, but I do know how to crochet.
Comment: This is a very pretty card and I can see myself also picking it up to buy for swaps and then wondering...what was I thinking? Of course this is why we have swaps like WTH heh cause we all just collect PCs like mad and then go through our little hordes later in surprise. Hehe <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the card MarHelene. I know what its like to be stuck home, I was out for almost 2 months with a bad back!! So I understand you!Thanks for taking the time to send it to me! Have a restful day!
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the postcard, I love it! Haha, I'm still learning, I only know little bits and pieces of the language as my Great Grandma is Dutch/Indonesian, so she's tried to teach me here and there. But it is quite hard. I wish you a very lovely week ^_^
Comment: Thanks for the coloring postcard. That's great to grow a hibiscus and geranium. I recently repotted 2 mini orchids I "saved" from a flash sale a few years ago. I'm wondering if I can ever get them to flower and find out their colors.
Comment: Thank you for the letter and extras. We don't have those stores here (very rural town, you'd like it.. Lots of farms!) but they sound fun. I will have to see if there is one in Reno since I go there often.
Comment: I used to make swaps with more partners, but cut them down because of the cost. Now I do them with one or two partners. It's nice to have more partners for members who are trying to get their numbers higher, but I can't afford to do more than 2 at a time right now. So that is my limit. lol. Have a great day, thanks for joining my swaps, and happy swapping to you.....
Comment: This card was perfect for me! I am intrigued by Holland and would love to travel there one day. The peacock is also one of my favorite animals and the blue and white pattern reminds me of my grandmothers blue willow China which I now have. Ah so many feelings from a postcard. If I could give multiple hearts I would!
Comment: thank you so much. How is your garden now? i dont have own garden, i have balcony with quite a space for gardening which i do use and we have now new community garden but the draught this year and the previous tooo is killing it all, anyway we try what is possible
Response: Everything is a bit dry, but stuff is growing!
Comment: Hello and thank you for the great repro vintage Vegas card. I love it. And it's really neat because there are the modern hotels (Luxor, Bellagio, MGM) in the background, but you gotta pay attention to know it's not a true vintage card. Really appreciate it!
Comment: Hello Marjolene, thanks for the pickles card. there used to be an old restaurant here in Pittsburgh that would drop a bowl of pickles on the table as soon as you sat down. Alas, long since closed. Best, al
Comment: <3 for you!
Thank you for the lovely PC of San Fran, I have only been there once, but I would love to visit again. Possibly see Alcatraz :) Also, I loved the moon-stamp, very different. We only have rectangular stamps here in Australia. Happy swapping <3 :)
Comment: Marjoleine~So nice to meet you! I love the San Fran trolley PC you sent me. My son his girlfriend and her family were in San Fran this time last year. I heard all about the trolleys from them. Thanks for this lovely PC~
Comment: Hi Marjoleine, thank you so much for the super interesting and very thoughtful Origami in the Garden postcard! I hosted that origami swap and it was my very first swap to host, so the postcard you sent me is extra special! Thank you once again, and happy new year :) From Sophie
Comment: Marjoleine, thank you for the postcard showing me where you once lived. You sound like me when I was younger. I did everything. I danced until I was 60 in shows. The Cancan finely did me in. My knees could not take it. Happy New Year, Shirley Thank you for the second postcard. Shirley
Comment: Aw, thank you for the beautiful postcards! I hope you can get to a glass blowing place next time you're in Seattle. Making a pumpkin every autumn sounds like a wonderful tradition, I may have to steal that! There's a few places in Seattle to do so, but maybe 45 minutes outside is Tacoma which I think is the glass blowing capital of the world, if I'm not mistaken (or, at least of the US!). Happy holidays! :)
Response: Steal ahead!
I do it with girlfriends and every year we add another person
Comment: Hello! Sorry for the delayed rating: I was on a road trip and just got back and made it to the post office to pick up my parcels. Thank you so much for all the fun stationery! I love the washi tape.
Comment: Marjoleine~ I am so sorry for this late rating . . . your beautiful envelope and all it's contents fell under my craft table and I just found it when empty my trash can. Thank you for the beautiful envelopes and the extras.
Comment: LOVE the Wonder Woman card :) Ohh yeah we have already passed through Fall and Winter is trying it's hardest to start here. We get days of snow then days of melting - makes the roads interesting to drive and everyone seems to of forgotten how to winter hahah! Thank you for the great card :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! We've been dealing with wildfires all summer. Thankfully the ones here in the part of Oregon I live in have been contained or eliminated. I hope the California fires are contained soon; so much has been lost.
Comment: Your handwriting is amazing! Loving it! I also can't wait until the cooler weather but I will probably complain when it's below freezing. I just like it chilly enough to drink teas and be cozy in warm sweater :)
Response: I had a good day with the writing.
More than a post card or note card and my hand hurts.
Glad you enjoyed it!
Comment: Dank je wel voor jouw prachtige kaartje Marjoleine. En wat leuk dat ik jouw eerste (? kon het cijfer niet lezen, er zat een dikke zwarte stempel op..) Nederlandse swap ben! Leuk he dat het zo internationaal is :) Happy swapping!
Response: Je bent mijn 2e maar even goed leuk inderdaad!
Comment: Hello! Thank you so much for the "Grey Dog" postcard from New York City! It's not so ugly! ;) I'm not sure what happened to the first postcard--I suppose it is floating around out there somewhere in "postal land!" Thank you again!
