Comment: WoW! I see from the postmark you mailed this swap 2 months ago in April and I just got it! Well, it was worth the wait!! What beautiful envelope and the inside contents. I love the very large stamp of your country's Royal Family. Very cool!
I love the large postcard you wrote your note one with the glasses and moustache Too funny! I love the colorful
owl stickers. I also love
Autumn. I absolutly love all 5 cards you sent! I can't pick a favorite! Thank you for such Happy Mail!! Thank you for joining my Swap!
Comment: Thank you so very much for all of the wonderful dandelion and birds postcards. I love them and it is always special to me to receive mail from another country! I love your darling decorated envelope that you sent everything in. P.S. thank you for translating the name of the birds. Fun swap!
Comment: Oh such a colourful envelope! I love the contrast of the bright colours in combination with the black paper. Which pens do you've used? Such a great flawless opaque result, looks like printed. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm glad you liked it :) I used Sakura Gellyroll Moonlight pens, it takes two layers to get them that opaque on black paper. Apparently they also fluoresce under blacklight but I've never had the opportunity to see that.
Comment: Neat PC! I looked it up online and the sculpture of the giant was made in 1969 and was one of the artist's first large sculptures:) Always fun to learn new things! Hope you're having a great day:) :)
Comment: Ohhh how I love this pack of cards card! I've worked in the casino a couple of years, so it's extra special for me. Love it! And your cute decorations on the back. The Swedish stamps are so cute always!
Comment: Thank you very much! I love birds stamps. You've use so many cute and funny sctickers like ex. fried egg and Pikachu. I also see that you've put some star and cat stickers. That postcard looks amazing! Thank you very much! Have a great weekend!!!

Comment: What an awesome postcard! I live in a town where there is a railroad park that has trains like the postcard you sent. We have working steam engines and diesel too. There is nothing more magnificent as the whistle of these trains! Thanks for making me smile!
Comment: Very artistic, you are. How did you do that fine blue writing on the envelope? Even the postmistress commented. And, also thanks for the Russian postcard of a Pushkin scene. I believe they have changed the name of the town. I was there in 1993. I had been to a volunteer program, then to St. Petersburg.
Comment: This was a beautiful beautiful creative and completely useless egg-timer! Thanks so much, we were all marveling at your idea and how lovely it was! A work of art! And so many beautiful stamps as well. Wish I could cover this note in hearts :)
Comment: I love the wrapping, the notebook and the goodies hidden inside. You've made it with so much effort that I felt like opening a birthday present from a real good friend. Thank you so much!!!â™¡
Comment: Thank you for the lovely bright & beautiful washi tape samples. I also really loved your artsy mailing envelope with the washi cat and your pretty drawn colorful flowers, and your use of matching flower postage stamps, and oh, the backside of the envie too.

Comment: Thanks for the stickers! I really like your style (it's kinda quirky, haha) - I'm also super happy to see a postcard with a proper looking gent and that you included the street art postcard, as well. Opening this envelope made my day. :)

if possible, may I private swap with you? :)
Comment: Thank you so much Lisa! It's absolutely beautiful (I have no idea how you get those stitches so uniformed and neat, I had so much difficulty with even getting the method down!) A fine addition to my collection, or any for that matter :o)
Comment: My husband gets such a kick out of my international mail. He said, "That little box came a LONG way!" Thank you so much for my pin! I just love it. What beautiful needlework. And my favorite colors too! I will wear it proudly. Thanks again.
Comment: <3 <3 <3 Thank you a million times over!!! The journals you made (not one but TWO) are fantastic!

Comment: O M G ! You literally caused a "minor seizure of happiness followed by a joyous tingle in the extremities." I opened the package in my bedroom and came running out showing off everything. There are so many shades of teal out there - but you found the PERFECT one. Everything in the kitty box made me swoon! Thank you so, so much for making my day...no, week! =^.^=

Comment: Your art is just lovely! Do you sew on a machine or by hand? Thanks so much for the wonderful pc and I enjoyed reading about you as well! Wow, only six hours of sun light, yikes! I love the snow as well, but not for that reason! Thanks again and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I sew by hand, as sewing machines are scary :) Thanks for the compliment, I'm glad you liked it!
Comment: Lisa, these are fantastic! I love the graph paper (we don't have anything with that shape here) and the calendar sets are gorgeous with the pictures on one side and the lines on the other. How fun! Thank you so much. :)

Comment: You sent a wickedly sweet collection of stickers that left me speechless! I will treasure the altered postal customs sticker. It won't be randomly stuck in Seattle; I simply like it too much to part with it! I promise, however, to stick the devilish cutout and Mr. Greenery. Thank you! P.S. You've prompted me to check out Stickerbomb as I found the enclosures delightful. Thank you! Thank you!
Comment: Wow! I am so glad to be the lucky recipient who received your lovely art journal. If I could give you more hearts, I would - you're work is so precise and balanced, and really. . .stunning. I like that you included a little anecdote for each day you worked on it too, I think you did a really wonderful job!

P.S. I love the postcard that you sent as well. I love the old trolls legends and the artwork on the postcard is beautiful.
Comment: Great swap! Jag tycker inte alls att det var trÃ¥kigt med en svensk partner. Du skickade vÃ¤ldigt roliga och goda godisar. Tesorterna Ã¤r superintressanta oxÃ¥, har bara smakat tvÃ¥ Ã¤nnu. Kuvertet med papper ska bli superkul att anvÃ¤nda. Det var mycket fint inuti! Tack sÃ¥ vÃ¤ldigt mycket! :) //Emma
Comment: What a great package! All of the items were amazing--I got SO excited when I saw the Ghost World button. The tote bag is fantastic as well. Sorry the postal service didn't cooperate with you :)
Comment: Hi Lisa! Thanks so much for the postcard for the Anything Goes pc#2 swap. I love the colors and the abstract art! So sorry you've been ill. I'm glad you have the American Gladiators to keep you company! Take care. I'm giving you a heart because you've been sick and hopefully that will help cheer you up.
Comment: thank you so much for the cool buttons. And for the extras!!! I love the text and the illustrative line drawings. And what a great idea to make buttons from postage stamps...now I know what to do with mine since I don't collect them anymore! Hope you feel better soon.
Comment: Got it today and it is love at first sight! The book is FANTASTIC. I am awed! Also, the stuff inside is so related to the "pages" and I can't thank you enough for the spare matchboxes!
thanks thanks thanks
Comment: Lisa! You did such a good job stuffing that little matchbox with so many goodies. I really like everything you sent and I'll put that good luck seed in my jacket pocket. Everyone needs a good luck charm. Thanks for everything. I'm going to add a picture of your goodies to my flickr pictures. Cindy
Comment: Absolutely terrific package, thank you so much! I love everything, and the extra gift you put in was extremely thoughtful and very much appreciated. I wish I could throw on a few more hearts. You certainly deserve them.
Comment: Lisa--I SOOOOOOOO enjoyed your note explaining the randomness you sent!!! That was even more fun than the items--and they were all great!!!! Back in the dark ages, when I was in high school, we had a foreign exchange student from Sweden--Clas Lindref. Clas taught us SO much-even though he was younger than we were. Last time I got to speak with him was about 20 years ago at a reunion--he was teaching English there. Seems people in Sweden are good at learning English. Probably good at languages in general. Anyway, wish I could give you extra ratings!!! I love the package and will treasure the note!!!!! THANKS!!!!!
Comment: OMG I received your matchbox today and I must say that is the neatest filled matchbox I have ever seen. And the largest. You must tell me where you get them at. PM me. I loved everything in it and you stuffed it full thought it was never ending. Thank You!!!
Comment: I was just wishing I could learn how to make these knotted bookmarks! Thank you very, very much. I am going to put the sample one to work right away and when I finish the kit one, I'll send it up to my daughter in Boston 'cause she loves those colors.
