Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful envelope you sent me, so full of goodies that I can't wait to use. I also really like the sound of the books you read. I will be adding them to my list! I would also be open to being penpals. My mum has 3 dachshunds - they are miniatures!
Response: Wonderful! So glad you received everything safely, Shel. I’m still keen to correspond! Let me know if you want me to write again, or if you want to reply to me. <3

Comment: Hello, I just wanted to let you know I received your swap yesterday. I had already rated it - just so it wasn’t delayed or anything, but oh my goodness this was one of the most beautifully put together swaps I’ve received so far you are so talented at making envelopes and putting together swap/packages, thank you so much it really did make my day! I’ve been having a pretty bad week as my daughter has been dealing with medical issues for the last week and a half- we’re better now but seriously this was so well put together and I can tell you truly put so much into it! Also: so jealous of your penmanship, lol.
Response: This is such a sweet comment. I’m so glad you liked what I sent and that it brightened your day. This is exactly what I hope for when I send out mail. <3 I hope you and your daughter are now doing much better. Xo

Comment: I love this packet! Thank you so much. My fave true crime stuff is old shows from the 90s/early 00s. I love how calm the narrators voices are.

I'm glad you liked everything I sent you in the swap. I have a generous penpal/swapper who is also Canadian and usually sends me beautiful extras. I just can't use them up, even with the most creative journal or mail art. So I'm paying them forward by sharing her abundance. Only for those who I think would use them, of course.

Anyway, happy new year and have a beautiful life. <33

Kia Ora from NZ, Sarah! I received another Christmas card with tea from you - which I'm very thankful for 💖, but I couldn't find another swap for it, so you might have sent it twice by accident?! ...but to answer your question what a Bavarian does on Christmas in NZ, being a bit nostalgic I guess. I do bake a lot of Christmas cookies, like me and my Mom did when I was little. It's rainy and grey today, which give a little Christmas vibe for me, but it is super humid. Lots of love and Happy Holidays from the South Island 🎄

I'm glad the swap got to you safely. I quite enjoy the lychee black tea myself but to manage expectations, it will smell strongly of lychee (which I enjoy) and it will taste like regular black tea. So it's more like a treat to nose and tastebuds. =) Enjoy!

Your WICKED atcs arrived today! I love them...I doubt I could pick out a favorite because I absolutely love them all. Thanks you so much for doing this swap, now I'm in the mood to see "Wicked" again.

Hi there - thank you so much for joining my Pride & Prejudice ATC swap. :) Will there be more information about you in your profile? It's just that it makes it easier for people to swap - like if they want to send something extra, etc. :)
