Comment: Great postcard! I love receiving each other's first attempts at new crafts -- I think it's one of the gifts we can give each other, encouragement to try new things. And my favourite bird is probably the nuthatch, just because I think they are beautiful to look at! We occasionally get them on our bird feeder in the back garden.
Comment: Sabrina, thanks so much for your amazing card!!! I loved Coco Too!! Such a colorful movie. I love Dias Dos Muerta. A much more friendly way to think of those who have passed on and Disney did a great job showing how spirits pass thru the land of the living to visit their family. Thanks for the vintage post cards
Comment: Thanks for the neat PC:) Sorry about your Radar, sucks to have to say goodbye. Great name pick though! Radar is still my favourite character. I have the box set of the series and had the good fortune to meet Alan Alda recently and got him to autograph it for me! Hope Sept is starting out well for you:) :)
Response: Oh wow, that would be awesome to meet Mr. Alda!
Comment: thank you for the wonderful postcard, it was a perfect choice for me! I edited my profile description and made it clear that the point is sending something related to my wishlist and my blogs, something personal. And you nailed this, the card is perfect, I love every inch of it!
Comment: Hey girl! I really enjoyed this PC, front and back! The book you are (or were) reading looks interesting, is it? Thanks for sharing the things you're currently into with me, I adored the popsicle stamps on the PC. Have a great week!
Response: The books were OK but were overdue at the library so I never finished them. Glad you enjoyed the PC!
Comment: Thanks for the PC. really interesting image. Yes, my name is really W*******. I married into the family a couple years ago. (from your list, sounds like you would be right at home in an Austen novel yourself :)
Comment: OH MY GOD!!! I can't believe this PC with Niffler♥ on it. I didn't notice it as I was reading your note and when I flipped it over, I almost cried. Also today I got a RAK pc with a Native American image. I can't tell you how much mail from you has really made some shitty days bearable. I can't thank you enough Sabrina. ♥♥
Comment: WOW. I am super spoiled!! First, the swap came yesterday. I'm like a Sunday delivery? What did I order from Amazon? Jen brought it in and said "What did you order from Lush?" I was like "nothing". She insisted the package was from Lush and damn, it wasn't far off. This really made my day. I loved absolutely everything in this package so much. Last night I soaked my troubles away in my bath bomb munching on a chik o stick. This is the reason I wanted such a swap in such a group. It couldn't have been a better swap. Thank you so much Sabrina♥♥.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I enjoyed shopping for you. I even chose the charity pot from a Native American focused non-profit. I also may or may not have bought specific postcards for you that I will send in future swaps since we get matched up pretty often... :) I love that you were chomping a Chik O Stick while bathing! :)
Comment: I've never been to Lubbock, I am going to have to check it out one day! I love Buddy Holly's music and it's sad he left us so young. Today I think they would call it "Golden Oldies", or "Uber-oldies" if you want to sound trendier! Thank you!
Response: Haha, thanks! I wouldn't recommend Lubbock as a destination unless it's a short trip, there's not a whole lot to do there!
Comment: Your re-send arrived today & I love them all. Thank you so much for choosing cards based on my profile. And you must be psychic since I don't think I mentioned in my profile that I spent many years in Maine. The vintage "old codger from Maine" was therefore perfect too! So sorry your first batch got lost in the mail.
Comment: What a special eclipse pc & postage! That postage is SO cool, love it! The eclipse was partial here in Denver, too. My husband and I hung out in the backyard with glasses and enjoyed the afternoon!
Comment: Thank you, this is such a lovely swap! I barely got past the Taurus card, lol! Ahhhh, it's awesome. Thanks for selecting perfect postcards for me, and how cool are the coin seeds!? I've never seen anything like that. Thank you so much for joining my swap! You made me smile! : D
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful PCs you chose for this swap. The Hurricane Ike one is so sad and truly shows Mother Nature. . . and the PC of the door is just lovely. Thanks so much and hope to see you in future swaps ~~
Comment: Thank you for researching and typing out all those local stories for me! Very interesting! I had heard of La Llorona and wrote a little about her in my graduate thesis that compared old stories with urban legends. I have also heard another Latin legend about someone at a dance who later saw that their partner had hooves and they had actually danced with the Devil.
Cool stories, thanks again!
Comment: It is always so good to find you at my mailbox! Thanks so much for the great PCs you chose for the wacky holidays of October. I really like the One Great Leap for Mankind - I remember that very well when it was televised on TV. I was living in Boston and watching TV on a little B&W TV when the show was interrupted - what a big accomplishment that was!! Thanks again for the great PCs ~~
Comment: Thanks so much for this PC. I laughed after reading that you thought it had to do with Native Americans and am truly honored that you wanted to find one that would mean so much to me. I appreciate the care that you put into what is just a postcard. You're incredibly thoughtful. â™¥â™¥
Comment: Cute postcard & love the eclipse stamp too! Awesome costume ideas! I'm sure you will come up with something creative for this year too. You can always alter the Hollywood theme to suit your taste ;) I hope you are well & dry where you are in Texas.
Comment: Thank You! Interesting PC! Thanks for the spell. It is beautiful. NOW I get a bit of an idea what it means in these swaps! It's the first Godess/Pagan related swap I have received, I was always curious. I will look up more on Persephone, it sure is intriguing.
Comment: Great idea for a swap! I loved the cards you chose and your concerns echo mine. I also enjoyed making my cards - I'm having extras printed so I can send them around or give them away. Thanks for inspiring me. :)
Comment: Oh my Goddess! Thank you so much for everything, you went so far above and beyond for this swap. I love it all -especially the willow wand that I had been eyeing off on Etsy! The perfume arrived too and is beautiful. Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your poetry with me, it's very appropriate for the times even if it is somewhat discouraging that poems like this need to be written. Here's hoping it will quickly become outdated.
Comment: Thank you for the great card. I remember when I was working if I had a meeting or class I would doodle on my paper that I used for taking notes. Like you said doing something helps you concentrate.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool assortment of cards! I love the weird ones - what's up with the fish??? So weird. LOL I also LOVE the flower maxi cards. They are so awesome!! Great swap - thank you for being so thoughtful!
Comment: Wow, received your postcard for the swap and enjoyed it, most amazing are all the lovely stamps you used on the message side - fun as I can reuse the cancelled postage stamps for mail art. Fun swap. Happy holidays!
Comment: a heart for effort. jejeje Sabrina beautiful postcard. I hope your spanish gets better and better. You have some mistakes but overall it's very good. have a great day! If you need help just write me and we can practice together :)
Comment: I love everything you sent me Sabrina! You do a lot of fun things! I wish I could visit the weird homes, they look so neat. I giggled at the tic-tac-turtle games, I may even share with my nieces and nephew. I'm a little jelly you had a steampunk birthday!! I've been not-so-subtly hinting to my husband and my mom I'd like a Lisa Frank themed party for my 40th next year. hehe Oh, and I too love Benadryl Cucumberpoop. XD
Comment: Sorry for the slat delay in rating- I usually end up doing ratings at night when I am at work, and I could not remember if this PC was from you or my other partner since both of your first names start with an S.... lol. Thanks for the fun PC!
Comment: I'm gonna wreck it! Hahaha. Don't know if you know this, but my partner and I went to a comic con as Ralph and Vanellope! I got to wear a bunch of candy in my hair! <3 Thanks for the great card! I'm glad they changed Ralph to look a bit more human in the movie.
Comment: Thank you for the neat Texas-map postcard, Sabrina! And thanks also for that challenge recommendation. I'll have to see about checking it out, but I'm already in so many challenges I might only check it out. ;-) Congrats on your progress in the challenge! Thanks again for sharing! :-)
Comment: Sabrina, thank you for taking the time to read my profile and making me something you knew I would love<3 It's a wonderful postcard, thanks so much! I'm just getting over a cold so I can't smell the stickers yet haha :(
Comment: Sabrina.....I finally found you.....lol. That is so strange I couldn't find this. I was getting so stressed. I feel so much better now. I'm sorry it took so long. Thank you so much for my postcards...I loved them so much. I already used them all. =) Take care, and happy Swapping.
Comment: Survivor -- Funny...I've never even seen that show. Actually, haven't seen much TV in last 10 years of any kind! Yes, if you work in foster care, our careers def cross over! As for travel: nothing to be afraid of...if you don't like it, you just go home! LOL
Comment: Ok Sabina I LOVE this card!!!!!!! I have caught a ghost on film. I have it on my FB. Feel free to friend me. Kathleen Currey in Albuquerque NM. It was in Jefferson Texas at the Jefferson Inn. It is a pic from across the street and I caught a ghost standing in the window looking my way! I even talked to the person staying in the room and she said she was staying there alone and it wasn't her for sure!!!! Thanks for a great swap!
Response: Yay, I am glad you love it! Cool about the ghost on film! I've caught "orbs" before but I am skeptical as many things could cause those!
Comment: I have mixed this envelope with my Czech received envelopes which i have on different pile- i loved the selection, especially happy with the greetings from :) - i have started recently collection of these:),I have bought about 50 from e-shop and USA wasnt there:)), so its new to me, thank you for this swap
Comment: Your cards arrived! I'll add more comments after I've gone through the envelopes. Thank you. (updated) I loved the variety you picked out for me! Some of my favorites include the four puppies in a cart, the Texans' map of the USA, and the City Circle Tram cutout from Melbourne, Australia. I'm on the hunt for a postcard/postage wooden stamp for when I make my own postcards.
Comment: Hi Sabrina, thanks for the cute dinosaur PC with the space stamps! I love it :) I have so many favorite musicals but I would have to say my top favorites are Motown, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, The Lion King, Sugar, and Beauty and the Beast <3 I haven't heard of Hamilton but I looked up the song list in Spotify and I never thought I'd be so hooked on history songs haha; these songs are amazing! I'm going to have to watch out for this play when it comes to Chicago. Thanks for telling me about it and happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard. Sorry to be late...so many postcards came at once, and I set them aside...and the rest is history. Where did they go? I think the Cowboy Cookies cound delicious...I should try them! Sounds like a glamour oatmeal cookie! Yum! Have a great Thanksgiving!
Comment: I just realised I still need to rate you! As you know the main part of the swap was stolen, almost certainly by customs, but the heart is for the thoughtful "extras" that did reach me, and for your willingness to do different things to compensate to some degree for what was lost <3
Response: No worries at all. I sent the PC with Peanuts stamps yesterday to your friend and took a photo of it as well. I hope it reaches her, please let me know if it does not and I can re-resend. I hate that the customs people stole things that were mostly useless to them, most likely. Who knows, maybe we should be checking ebay!
Comment: I dont think I have ever heard I want a hippopotamus for Christmas. Maybe its on youtube, I will have to go see.
Response: [Clicky link to hear the song](http://www.iwantahippopotamusforchristmas.net/songs/listen-to-songs-by-gayla-peevy) I am going to decorate my cubicle for our work contest with this theme. I am excited!
Comment: Hello sabbysteg (Sabrina from United States). I got your parcel on wednesday! Thank you so much for the 5 different flavors herbal tea box from CelestialÂ® (canÂ´t wait to try it), 8 colors pen from Texas (love it), 2 unwritten mailbox-themed postcards and 8 candy-themed envelopes + colorful cards. Have a great weekend, maria das trouxas
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcards, Sabrina! It's fantastic that you found three different cards for themes I love. Those burlap notecards are pretty fantastic, too-- I've never seen any like them, and am excited to use them. I kind of want to embroider on them, actually.
Comment: Wow, great card. I love to look at the cat's face! The weather is great here too. Tomorrow we will go out for a walk, to photograph autumn :-) I love autumn's colours, smells and richness (fruits and nuts). Thanks for the private swap.
Comment: Hello sabbysteg (Sabrina from United States). i got your peppermint tea bag yesterday after just 8 days travelling, so fast! :) You mail art envelope is cute ;P OMG! :O I never see the fortune teller fish from China before, thank you so much for sending me this amazing game! Happy swapping, maria das trouxas
Comment: I love the quote that all water is holy water. It is so true when I stop to really think. That hail and heat combo is amazing, I can only imagine how surreal that experience was. I got shivers thinking of it too. Thanks for a great swap!
Response: :D I think that is my favorite postcard I've ever sent, not necessarily the image but what I wrote. :D I enjoyed putting it all together. Glad you liked it!
Comment: I barely ever get to the mail box first but today i reached in and my brain had a delayed reaction like what the heck why is food sitting in the mail box. my mail man had put it in there perfectly with the mail up against it lmao thanks for the laugh and a piece of choc cake i will actually enjoy :) ( dont eat but a bite of it lol ) thanks my dear friend
Comment: Thank you so much for my reading! You clearly put time and care into it and I appreciate that. And your intuitive interpretation of the cards really resonated for me. Also thank you so much for doing the swap so quickly! You are an excellent swap partner and I would be happy to get you as a partner in any future swap and also happy to have you as a swapper in any swap I host. Have a fantastic day!!!
Response: Thanks for such a glowing response. :D I am glad you were satisfied it!
Comment: The animal crossing notecards were such a cute surprise thank you!! Also I recommend that etsy seller her stuff was packaged really nicely and excellent quality prints. Thanks again and happy swapping! (:
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. I love it. Did you say you are in Houston. Maybe we can get together sometime and have lunch or make up happy mail together. Eating and swapping are two of my favorite things. LOL. Just message me. Hugs, Diane
Response: Yes, I am in Houston but have been a bit too busy right now to make any plans not involving family. Thanks though!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful letter!!! I was so happy to get it. I love love the dinosaurs stickers and the stamps you put on the envelope.I actually have not sent my letter yet... so now I can write a little more in it before I send it out!! Thank you again, and thanks for doing this swap with me.
Comment: Love the cards---thanks! I think I'll send the 'voyage' one where you fold into a boat to my son in Cuba (on military deployment at Git-mo) and let him set it off into the Carribean Sea! Really cute idea that one-may I ask where you got it?
Response: I believe I got it from a Postcard Book by the author of Wreck This Book (Keri something). It's got a ton of postcards like it with creative ideas. :D
Comment: WOWZEEE! Your package was amazing! I love your washi decorated stationery and I'm going to have fun sending out letters with it!. The postcard is so beautiful and different I love it!! I can't believe all the sitckers- yay!!! so many pretty stars and other fun ones to use on mail art. How thoughtful of you to read my profile and give me alter things. The cloth is such nice quality and the dish is so pretty and unique I will definitely be using those. I am so excited about using the jewels and tiny shells in my projects and I think the cat eraser is soooo cute! And all that candy!! That was so thoughtful to find candy I can eat- I had a peppermint patty right away-yummy! You are right the purple pen is terrific! I am excited to try the tea you sent too.You did such a wonderful job putting together a lovely swap for me- THANK YOU <3 <3 <3 <3
Comment: oh I feel so spoiled! thank you so much, I have received the cross stitch pattern and the paper pack! Such a generous swap. Thank you and sending hugs :)xx UPDATE: oh wow Sabrina, today I received Dr.Who stickers ! They are amazing! Your generosity is humbling me ... I'm so thankful to you for spoiling me !!! I hope you are having an awesome day!
Response: There's one more bit coming! :D
Update: you are welcome! I am glad you received them!
Comment: Thank you for all the fun goodies! My daughter and I are excited to start the puzzle! Of course, the washi! YAY! Those headphones crack me up! And the stylus! What fun!! Tea seems interesting too! Thank you for such a thoughtful swap!!
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! I love the washi tape pattern you used and the Alphonse Mucha print. The joke made me laugh and I like how it matches the stamp. Is the Wizard of Oz postage faux postage or real?
Response: The Wizard of Oz postage is faux postage. :D They sell the sticker sets on Etsy.
Comment: Hi Sabrina!
Thank you! This is an awesome postcard! I love Doctor Who and DISNEY and its a great mix of the two!! Snow White would be quite an interesting companion!! LOL
Comment: There are NOT enough hearts to give! You have gone so far above, and you really did make my day... on a day I needed it! The proctologist card made me LOL! All three are going in my favorites photo album at home. I also LOVE the magnets! They will go in my office. I have the perfect place for them where I can see them! Thank you SO much for the very extra special swap AND for joining. Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you for this 'terrifyingly' scary postcard! Just realised there is a decapitated head inside the bell.. *shiver*. Still awesome! I love the stamps! Have a great day and thanks again! xxx
Comment: Hello Sabrina! We got a match! Yes, you sent me a postcard showing me a lovely waterfall! And its a match! The huge lake located west of my apt, the lake is called Lake Minnehaha! I'm not joking! Search the internet for Lake Minnehaha in Florida, I sometimes drive by it on my way to my doctor's clinic or on my way to the Clermont Post Office. Well, now I know there is a matching Falls in Minn, MN!
Response: Thanks, Whippet! I had a sister city in IA when I was growing up in a town called La Porte. It was always cool to think about it as a parallel universe. ;)
Comment: Wow thank you so much!!! I love love the divergent tags! love that, thats my favourite book series right now!! I think I would actually be Candor cause im always truthfully honest, however im not rude about it, but i don't feel like i would fit anywhere else, maybe even abnegation though. haha I love the post cards and book marks!! I can't wait to try the recipe thank you so much!!!!
Comment: Dear Sabrina thanks for the most beautiful Halloween postcard ever!!! Have fun this Halloween, Rainbow Brite was my favorite cartoon character when I was a child, such a cool idea to dress up as her! I'm sure you'll look great! :D
Comment: LOVED these. Thank you so much for all the little extras too, haven't seen transfer tattoos in years and years - going to give my other half a fright with one - let him think I've gone and gotten another tattoo!! Hahaha!
Comment: Thank you for a pack of lovely letters on beautiful notecards and your generous extra ... I LOVE the Mucha postcards! Wonderful! I will write back when I have a little free time on my hands. Thank you!
Comment: I received your box today and you are fabulous!!! Thank you so very much for all the goodies... My daughter is literally walking around with the suspenders on - lololol Thank you for putting the time & energy into the box - it VERY much appreciated <3
Response: That's awesome, glad your daughter liked the suspenders! I almost bought some for myself!
Comment: I admit the card had me worried, with its almost non-halloween them lol, but you make a good point about the occult and fortunetelling being in relation. I used to love getting this fishy fortune tellar things. I used it and according to it i'm 'Jealous', 'In Love' and 'passionate'. And i'd have to say its right on the money about everything. Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you for the cool naughty card. I got it on Jewish New Year day (it's symbol are apples) and couldn't stop laughing. I would love to do a private postcard swap. PM me, if you're interested.
Response: Haha, that's awesome, I didn't know that!
Comment: To answer your questions on the PC: no extras because I usually get stuff I don't need or won't use and I'd rather they be sent to someone who needs/uses them. And yes, I have read "The Historian" and I loved it!! Great pc also!!
Comment: Thank you Sabrina for the Birthday present. I opened the package up and found the slipper socks, just darling. I'm saving the envelope until my birthday date to open it. That will be a great day to open it. I opened the envie on my birthday, it was such a thrill to receive the nice goodies. Thanks for everything, Evelyn
Comment: Thanks for the ghostly card and little treats, Sabrina. If I were in a faction, it would definitely be Abnegation ..... with a smidgen of Amnity, a dose of Candor and Erudite, and a pinch of Dauntless! ðŸ˜ƒ Happy Halloween!
Comment: For a second I thought that your id was "StabbySeg" and I thought STABBY? COOL!! If you've ever read her blog, Jenny Lawson has a thing about being "stabby". She's not for the faint of heart, but she's hilarious if you like her type of humor. Question: did you try the Graze box? I keep seeing ads, but am too cheap to try it. How was it?
Response: Hahaha sometimes people call me stabbysteg, though I typically have a medium to long fuse. I have tried Graze. I like it OK, more so because I love trying new foods and things. :D A lot of the savory items are pretty good but I am finding I am not down with the dried fruits mainly because of the diet I am on.
Comment: Oh man, yeah, i don't truly understand how one can hate Halloween. Apparently my mom was one of those people but she still made it super fun for me and my brother growing up. Anyway, love the image on this card! Quirky and Devilish and kind of retro looking! :3
Comment: thank you so very much for the whipped soap and the sugar scrub, the stuff is amazing! I was in disney for 10 days so I am sorry I am just rating right now but this reached me, i opened it right away and i got to soak in my own tub and wash the cares of a 13 hour car ride away, it was thoughtful that you looked over my lists, and i love what you did pick, amazing... ty so much
Comment: Hi Sabrina -
I just got back from vacation yesterday. Finding your mailing was a very nice surprise. I really, really loved the pc with the Bible on it. I just cannot where everyone finds such neat postcards. Thanks for all of them.
Response: Hi there, thanks for the rating, I had hoped you'd like that one. When you get a big enough collection it is a little easier to find neat ones because you can be more picky about what you buy. I found that one at Barnes and Noble in their very messy stack of single PCs that I organized for them for free. ;)
Comment: Hi Sabrina!!:) Thank you very very much for all great cards!:) I like them very much...But stamps on envie wooow..I have never seen them before..they are also great!:) I wish you all the best!L.
Comment: You only had to answer 10 questions -- I get the feeling you often "go above and beyond". Thanks for the pages of puns, I like puns to and some of them will get repeated as if they were my own (just being honest)
Comment: Thank you for the absolutely amazing swap! I loved everything you sent, especially the pecans and pralines! I collect state magnets, so was thrilled with that! Everything was so awesome! I truly appreciate all the time and effort you put into this Texas sized swap! Loved it all...even the scorpion lollipop! My son lives in Arizona and he knew exactly what it was! Great job! Thank you!!!
Comment: OMG Sabrina, you are an amazing narrator! The whole time it felt like I was right there with you hehe, it was so much fun! Really, SO much fun! Thank you for the postcard and for letting me be part of your day. I just loved it and didn't want it to end! Thanks for the fun facts as well! Will def keep re-reading it, you're really funny. Loved your day!!
Comment: thank you for your coded message and hope you had fun at the birthday party and on you vacation. I have been to New Orleans - the food is amazing and I got to tour a plantation - it was so cool to visit that city. I'm a baby artist (lots of room for improvement - but I enjoy it) have fun and stay cool, darla
Comment: Egads - I love love love the bookmark and Zombie stickers (I've never seen any like that before!!). I told my husband (who has more time to read than I) about The Night Circus ~ we'll have to check it out! Take care and have a gorgeous day!
Comment: Wow, that is the most dazzling pineapple I've ever seen! Great idea. Thanks for the dried pineapple and the two recipes. The chicken bites sound great and the cake sounds so yummy. Will definitely try them both <3<3
Comment: Wow! What wonderful gifts. I LOVE the oboe pin! It is so much more beautiful in real life than the pictures show. I also love the greeting card that I got today. It is going to be framed and displayed in my studio. You were an amazing partner. I appreciate your thoughtfulness so much. It meant a lot to me because I last Etsy swap I got flaked on by my partner. Thank you so much it means so much to me! :)
Comment: Love the quotes and the one room school house pc! I teach middle school and can't even imagine having all those different aged kids in one room! P.S. Don't forget to put your username and swap name on your pc's.
Comment: The envelope was cute and hand decorated and the surprise inside was a mini letter set still in the package. I love that letter set, It is so cute with the anthropomorphic peanuts on it. I was so excited to get it. Thank you so much for your generous gift.
Response: You are so welcome, I am glad you liked it!
Comment: I would be glad to be your new semi regular postcard/letter pal. Perhaps we can shake it up. I'm actually shocked right now because you have the same exact birthday as me down to the year! I will send you some mail this week. Please inbox me your address!
Comment: Thank you for the great card from Texas.. I am so glad I was able to find you Please be sure to put name of swap.. I do this myself but process by going through i was able to find you,, glad you had dated the card,, Helped a lot. Have a fantastic day!
