I just love these postcards!! Thank you for the surprise tag! ❤️

itsnobody on Sep 13, 2021:

Thank you your CD arrived and I can't wait to try it out on my way to work. Fun thing is that the package stayed at our customs for a long time and they were asking me for documentations for the package but I totally forgot that I was waiting on package from the UK, and told them to send me back documentation with the insides o the package lol so time passed by and one day it came to my door without me having to pay any taxes o.o What a luck!!

Hello there my fellow american!! I received your “I collect” tag swap today. It’s lovely and thank you! I also sent you an invite to our euro swappers only group. Stachel and I host it. Your welcome to join! As far as America goes... Our people obviously need us.. I mean...obviously... I can hardly watch it all anymore. Maybe we have to go back and straighten the whole mess out!!!!! Take care! Stay safe!

You have no idea how stunned I am with your gift for the "I collect...send to the person above you"Tag. Everything is absolutely beautiful and perfect. The glass pendant is so delicate and I am so moved you made the key ring just last week with me in mind. Thank you so much for so much kindness.

Hi! I received the "I collect...send to the person above you" tag from you! Thank you so much for all the lovely washi samples ♥

tcornell on Jun 2, 2020:

Received the "My Requests" tag from you. Thank you so much for the emoji socks- they are cuter than I envisioned. Also, thank you for the great stickers! How do you like living as an expat? My husband and I have been considering moving to Panama once we retire, as our money will go further. Though there is the language issue... Thanks again, Tracy ♥
