Comment: Thank you for the postcard - I had one of these before and sent it to a friend, so it's fun to receive it again and now it will stay in my collection! Yes, I too look forward to traveling again someday - for now it will be road trips or weekend trips (I hope). Take care and enjoy your reading adventures!
Comment: Thanks so much for that great card with the maple leaf and national anthem. Loved the trivia about it being written for Quebec's St. Jean Baptiste Day which is today! Very interesting. Enjoy your holiday today! All the best! Cathy
Response: I did have a good St. Jean, thanks! And now it's Canada Day, so I hope you're enjoying a day off as well. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely card it was beautiful. I just started back at my job yesterday. It would be so much better if I could actually be in the park rather than working from home, but whatever, we'll get over this eventually. That's such a shame your career switch was so short lived. I hope you end up where you want to be soon.
Comment: Wow this card took almost 5 months to get to me. I received it today April 10, 2021 in one of the envelopes from the Postal service that said they were sorry that your mail got damaged. The corner with the stamp got tore off but all of your note and my address were ok. It was a cute card and thank you for the nice note.
Response: I'm so relieved that it finally made it! I have been debating re-sending, but with it being a Christmas card I wasn't sure about that. Anyway, glad it got to you! :)
Comment: Hello Anne-Marie!
Thank you so much for the letter! I absolutely enjoyed reading it and also appreciated all the packaging you added in!
I'm going to send you a letter next week :)
Thanks again and have a nice day!
Comment: Hmm, yes baking and crafting have fallen by the wayside for me lately, too... I have to say, I love the line in your profile about baking wedding cakes then not "..Things change". Way to own it! I'm learning to embrace that philosophy myself. Happy Day to you!
Response: Why thanks - a happy day to you as well! :)
Comment: Thank you so much! My hubby is doing a lot better. He is in remission from the cancer but still is dealing with some lingering issues from the surgery and the radiation. Have a wonderful day!
Response: Glad to hear it. Thanks so much for the rating and heart! Take care!
Comment: Oh my goodness!!! Anne-Marie your box arrived today and EVERYTHING is amazing! I can't tell you how much I LOVE my little Christmas Mouse 🐀🐀 it is perfection!!! You are so talented!!! AND A Totoro!!! You've completely spoiled me! I love the beanie and the pin so much and I can't wait to eat the chocolate! THANK YOU!!! xx
Response: Aw, you are so welcome! I'm very happy they arrived safely and that they make you happy! :)
Comment: Hi Anne-Marie, thank you for your wonderful letter. I like Funko Pops. Here in Germany we have also Brick Headz from Lego. I collect this types, too :) Hope your job gets easier for you soon. Have fun. :)
Response: That's fun! I love collecting things :) Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter Anne-Marie! The magical read-a-thon sounds incredible. Too bad it’s being discontinued! I am going to look up There’s something about Sweetie because that sounds like a cute feel good book. I loved your tea and stickers. Your handwriting makes me jealous! Thanks again, Robyn
Response: Aw thanks! There's Something About Sweetie was very cute, finished it on the weekend. I hope if you read it that you also enjoy it! Glad you liked the extras. Take care!
Comment: Aw, what a bummer that the job interview didn't work out after all. Hope you find something that's fulfilling! Thanks for sharing your roller coaster weekend with me.
Response: I actually ended up walking into a spontaneous interview last Monday and got a job there, working as a cashier. I wouldn't call it fulfilling, necessarily, but it's a change of pace and it's a paycheck. It's been another crazy week and a half! Thanks :)
Comment: I loved your food choices! Homemade white bread is really good, my mom makes some delicious ones, especially now in this Covid19 period we can't go to the bakery a lot. Have a happy day, hugs!
Response: Thank you! We have been doing a mix of homemade and bakery bread, but I think I'm due to make some homemade again!
Comment: I love your PC of the cat reading! Very cool. The first and last lines are not particularly enticing. I do like fantasy and supernatural, but that wasn't a roaring endorsement, so I'll probably pass! Lol! Thanks for sending.
Response: Haha, no I didn't end up enjoying it very much either. I wanted to suggest Louise Penny, if you haven't already read her books!
Comment: What a wonderful notecard!! Angus is a stray as well, rescued at about a week old as an abandoned kitten. He's purely black with the smallest white tuft on his tummy. You have a big cat on your hands! I was a huge fan of Harry Potter as a kid and it'll always hold a little place in my heart. That definitely is a wonderful quote and don't worry, I could tell your drawing was a wand. ♥ Thank you so much for the tea and stickers as well!!
Response: You're welcome! Thank you so much for the heart rating!
Comment: Bonjour Anne-Marie, I've got you letter. Thanks!! I already wrote you back (in french is SO easy and fast!). I will joins you some die-cuts: I have a machine. You can reply by a craft if you want :) I'm a crafty person.
Response: Merci Josee! I'm looking forward to your letter! :)
Comment: Finally your package reached its destination. It's called "snail-mail", but this snail crawled very slowly!
I wanted to give 10 hearts for the tea steeper, but unfortunately that's not possible.
You made my day!
Response: Oh my goodness! I had almost forgotten about this package! Wow, that is a very long time, usually my packages to the Netherlands take only a week! Better late than never, I suppose!
I'm so glad you loved it :) You're welcome, and happy holidays! ;)
Comment: Wow, I think it took the scenic route arriving. It arrived Saturday evening, in time for my birthday. I adore the stickers you sent and the card made me smile. Thank-you also for the warm words you used inside. I appreciate you as a friend. Thank-you again. I hope this month is special for you as well.
Comment: TY! I got half way though this letter and I had to leave so wanted to rate before i left.. Your code is so nicely written, lol. I had to use graph paper! Did your car get back from the doctors all fixed? Hope so! I am excited to decode the rest of it! My son saw it and was all like, WTH is THAT??? & now thinks I am weird cuz I can almost read it without the cypher, lol. TY for the extra bits, too. Hugs from your southern neighbor. next time you go thru my town... You better beep at UberBlast (used to be banana village - the cabana hut mini golf place).. I live right behind it, lol.
Response: Haha, yes, my car is all better, thanks! :) You're welcome, glad you're enjoying it! And I'll be sure to do that if I'm ever going thru your town again.. ;) Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Anne-Marie, thank you so much for such a wonderful package! I've been trying to eat everything slowly, so as to make it last longer, so I've only tried one candy so far, lol! :) The only candy that looks familiar is the Dairy Milk (I think it's by Cadbury), but I've never actually had one, so it's still new-to-me, hehe! Well, and the Rockets, which are our Smarties, but I haven't tried them, so they may taste different, I'm not sure yet! I can't wait to try all the new candies and treats, they all look so good! I hope you like my package for you as much as I love everything you sent me! :) Thanks again!
Response: Aww, yay! I'm so glad the package got there quickly with no problems. And glad you like everything. Thanks so much for the rating, I'll let you know when I get mine!! :D <3
Comment: Anne-Marie, thank you for the notecard, stickers and Thomas Kincaid postcard. I have always loved Thomas Kincaid's paintings. They always seem to have cottages and plenty of colorful flowers on them. Shirley
