Comment: Hi Kelly!! I'm so sorry to be rating you so late. School is now back in full swing for me, and as normal, I tend to put my letters aside for some time while I adjust to my schedule. I wanted to thank you very much for your thoughtful Christmas letter and card!! I absolutely loved reading about your life, and your Christmas memories :) your life sounds so busy and interesting, and can I just say- I'm obsessed with the airmail stickers you included on the envelope! Lol happy 2018, & happy swapping!! :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Hello Kelly, Josh and Henry. Thank you for the lovely card. We have finished our travels and are back home in Australia, where the blue ringed octopus is the least of our worries right now as we are apparently going to have a 115 (fahrenheit) Christmas. It is, according to the weather channel going to stay at that temp for then entire week between Christmas and New Year, which mean our plans of heading to the beach have changed for a lake near Orange NSW. About 4 hours from Canberra but set at the bottom of Mt Canobolas and shaded by Aussie bushland. No Octopuses in the lake, perhaps some Murray River Cod, which can get very big but they are mostly harmless.
Thank you for the lovely card, Nat
Comment: Oh my gosh, we loved your card. We all cracked up about the Guardians of the Galaxy Mary Poppins thing - hahaha! He was so happy when he saw the two $1 bills you sent. He said "Now I can go see Ferdinand the Bull...it comes out today. We also thought your stickers on the envelope were so funny. The Zebra & the Let's Boogie :) We loved everything. Thanks for a very funny swap! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the sparkly Santa card!! Sometimes I wish I was a kid again to experience the magic of Christmas like I used to, but I like that I can make that magic happen for my nieces now. It makes me miss it less to see the magic in their eyes! Merry Christmas!!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Christmas card, itâ€™s going to make a great addition to my Christmas card display. I know youâ€™ve got one of mine coming your way, happy to hear itâ€™s going to be an addition to your office desk display ðŸ˜€. Have a Merry Christmas.
Comment: I love love this kitty Christmas card! Thanks and thanks to Henny for the purrfect wishes! My cats are each one in a chair on either side of the fireplace today! They greet Henny back! And it is snowing!!! I'm so happy-been worried we wouldn't get some soon! Happy Holidays!
Comment: Kelly and Josh, thank you so much for the lovely holiday card! I wish you a very happy holiday season and a wonderful new year! Thank you for wishing me a wonderful solstice - that really means a lot to me!!!
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous overhead view of Boston -- I'd love to revisit in a non-audition/business context and actually experience the history, art, architecture, music, and other attractions that the city has to offer -- and the floral postage! Hope you had a swift and painless trip shopping for presents :) I have been slowly accruing items and will sit down with some festive music soon and wrap everything (something I look forward to every year). Happy Monday!
Comment: Thank you for the Winter Wishes card. I wish I lived in a house like that. I bought some owl ribbon at JoAnn last night and I put it on my kitchen cabinets. Now I am hanging my cards on it. I can't wait to add yours. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Love the cute card with the car all loaded down. Life in the 50's & 60's was so much different than it is now. Things went at a slower pace. Christmas was about Christ's birth not about what gifts you were going to get. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Thank you! I'm glad you stomach bug was short lived and you're feeling better. I was raking our front yard when the mailman delivered our mail, so he handed it to me instead of putting in the the box. Your card was on top, and he said, "This postcard scares me a little. You may want to Lysol it!"
Comment: Thanks for the cutest card I got I love it! Thanks so much for the warm wishes : ) It is weird too for me I haven't watched Home Alone yet, I better get on that lol. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday : )
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Christmas card ðŸŒ²
You are correct - the pug looks worried. I do get snow in Georgia but it's been three years since anything accumulated. Last year it snowed for a bit but melted an hour later.
Comment: Thanks for taking the time to write something besides Merry christmas or happy holidays. It makes the swap much more personable which is why you get a heart.
Response: Thanks for the heart!! There's so many partners in these swaps that sometimes I do just want to write my name but I can't bear to because a blank card looks so sad to me! I'm glad you like it ^_^
Comment: This has absolutely taken a place of honor among the cards I've received...I just laughed out loud when I read your message then flipped tge card closed to see which kitten looked like Henny! Merry, Merry Christmas to you, Michael, and Henny! â¤ï¸ðŸ’›ðŸ’šðŸ’œðŸ’™
Response: Hehehehe I'm glad you liked it. Henny is so proud she's a Christmas card model. â™¥â™¥
Comment: We loved your Christmas card. It was voted our favorite Christmas card so far by my family - LOL! Grayson loved getting his very own card from you & he loved the $1 bill. He calls them "tips" b/c he works 4 days a week at Panera Bread as a table washer & bus boy & once in a while someone will leave him a tip. One time a man gave him a $100 tip!! We couldn't believe it. He took the money & bought a DVD player & some movies for his disabled class at school b/c there's was broken. He is so sweet. Thanks again for the holiday joy!
Response: Happy to make him smile :) Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you ðŸ˜Š. You said you had your yearly fill of turkey, well I'm having turkey again tonight. I made more gravy, chopped up some turkey and put it in the gravy along with cooked carrots and noodles. I guess you could call it turkey soup! I'm ready for a hamburger!
Response: Well when you put it that way, it sounds pretty good :D thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the hilarious, adorable Paris vs. New York card -- I like both of the things depicted :) -- and for sharing your eclectic musical tastes (I love that!) Hope you are having a good weekend <3
Comment: When you said Shirley Temple I automatically thought of the actress, but then I realized you were talking about the drink, ha! I've never had the drink, but I loved the movies with the actress in them when I was little.
Comment: Ahhhh! Thank you for the adorable Southdown ram shearling card -- I'm pinning it over my desk for whenever I feel sad or tired... That earnest little grin, baa-haha! :D Glad you voted! I am sad that some people don't vote because they don't think they make a difference, or because they don't care for candidates, but I think of the sacrifices people made for us to have this right, and I think it's the least I can do. Hope you are both having a good last few days before Thanksgiving! <3
Response: Thanks for another great rating, Avi. I'm glad to have brightened your day :D I love the farm animal set, they're so cute!
Comment: Kelly, I laughed when I read your note. I do not care for waiting either. My mother has an old instrument that she bought off of a peddler with a wagon when she was a young girl. I forget what it is called, but I love to hear her tell the story of the peddler and how she ended up with it. Thanks for the great card.
Response: Oh I love stories from moms. :D Glad you liked it, thanks for the heart. â™¥â™¥
Comment: great card! I went to NYC with my brother a few years back but we took an Amtrak for 4 hours to get into the city and we had a late start in the day so I only got to see the city during the afternoon and then we had to get back. I'd love to see new york at night, just like this photo.
Comment: 'Haminals' XD thank you for the cool postcard and the wonderful lists:)we gave a Washington Park here in the Portland area as well... it's part of Forest Park, the largest inner-city park in the country :)
Response: Glad you liked the lists ;) your Washington park sounds cool! Thanks for the heart :D
Comment: Great PC's for each of the categories (love the little kitty) and I really enjoyed your notes too :-) I just returned from vacation. My Mom took us on a cruise and it was New England. While we didn't go as far as the Adirondacks, we did get to Acadia and many other places. My husband is originally from Brooklyn. We hope to take a road trip next year to see more areas of New England. Fall is my favorite season and the weather is now staying fall like. Have a great day. Take care, Annette
Response: I think New England is really cool. There's some states that just have a certain NE feel to them. It's quaint and charming. I hope you had a great trip!
Comment: Thank you for the very ugly postcard! :) don't worry, the stamps and stickers totally made up for it! I love getting rid of ugly cards too, although it makes me wonder where people got them from in the first place!
Response: Yeah really. Some cards I see and I'm just thinking "who thought this image needed to be on a post card??" But you know, I'm sure there's someone out there who loves all the cards we think are ugly. Nonetheless I decorate the back in case you share my opinion ;D Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Kelly, got your New York card - reminded me of all the trips we did to NY when I lived in Toronto... Live theatre, Broadway musicals, MOMA, the Village... Have fun when you go!
Took a quick look at your bio & Michael's too.... interesting.....
see you in the mail, eepy
Comment: Thank you for the dreamy sunset view of Lake George -- it reminds me of the colors of Kate Bush's Aerial album :) Speaking of Columbo and classic television, I relished getting to watch Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie with my dad the other night on Antenna. If they would add Who's the Boss? to the line-up (I think the commercial also had Three's Company and I Love Lucy), I'd be set :) Hope you are feeling better and have a good visit with your mom! <3
Comment: Thank you for the shimmering view of Manhattan (I am just about to start Claudia Roth Pierpont's American Rhapsody, about the writers, artists, musicians, and other luminaries who contributed to our country's oeuvre and history :) Glad to hear about your family's delightful excursion! Reminded me of both The Catcher in the Rye (I still need to ride either/both the Central Park and Brooklyn near DUMBO carousel/s :) and the historic carousel near me (the camel was my first "steed" as a toddler). Happy Wednesday! <3
Comment: I love your collage!! The items are great and your comments really cracked me up...my favorite is the grocery list that started it all - hysterical but touching too, right? I hope the person was able to remember beets etc etc were needed without the list :-) This was such a unique swap, thanks for hosting! Tell my fellow Poughkeepsian (Poughkeepsie-ite?) I said hello LOL. Oh! And btw I LOVE the envelope, my name never looked so good :-)
Response: Ohhh I'm so glad you liked it! I just came up the with idea without much planning and it seems to have gone well :D Warm greetings from the capital, and thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Kelly, thank you for your black and white postcard. As a kid we visited Lake George a couple of times and stayed in really cute cabins. My grandfather had several wooden boats built on Lake George at Hackercrfft - that was a cool place to visit as a kid. Have a great weekend.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for the heart! I'm taking my grandpa to lake george this weekend :)
Comment: Hi and thanks for the POTUS card! I learned I have something in common with him: I love Scrabble too :) Sorry you missed your flight, but hey, the Hilton!
P.S. Where do you live? Neither your card nor profile said... (just curious).
Response: I'm in the Albany area of NY :) I'm glad you like the card ^_^
Comment: Belated thank you for the great view of the Paul Revere Mall! I have only been to Boston twice in passing, and I know those two extremely cursory jaunts were not enough to fully appreciate the city's history, culture, architecture, and offerings. I had stressful experiences both times I went, so I hope in the future to have more enjoyable visits :) Happy Sunday!
Comment: Belated thank you for the views of Lake George, Kelly! Hope your mom had a good birthday celebration :) I know that the iconic I <3 NY has been applied to images of the rest of New York state, and I would love to explore it further! So thoughtful and wonderful to honor family traditions by treating your mom to a trip :) May your grandmother rest in peace. <3 Happy Sunday!
Comment: Belated, belated thank you for the wonderful The Incredibles card and advice from Helen Parr/Elastigirl herself :) That is the one movie I totally preordered on DVD, and as as a senior, I prized the Edna Mode pin my best friend brought me back from her Christmas trip to Walt Disney World, as well as a stuffed Elastigirl that said several phrases). Hope you are both having a great Sunday!
Comment: It was postmarked as 29 July 2016 even though the deadline was the 27th. Edit: Sent an apology, communicated with me, and even gave extra! Thank you so much for going above and beyond when you didn't have to <3
Response: I can resend you another if you'd prefer? Is there a way to fix this? I drop my postcards in a box occasionally and that might have been why the delay. Either way I apologize. I'm really sorry it was late. :(
Also I'm really sorry for this late reply too. I didn't see the rating.
Comment: I'm extremely sorry for the late rating. I found a bunch of postcards that fell down behind the couch. I've been going crazy looking for them again I'm extremely sorry for the late rating Thank you for the Wonderful postcard.
Response: No worries here! Thank you for the heart!! â™¥â™¥
Comment: Oh thank you so much for the pretty cool card and beautiful stamps! You really made my day! I am impressed that you can send three postcards national wide for the price of one international. That is really a lot! Lucky me to get one! :)
Comment: Thank you for the idyllic, striking Portland Head Light poster card -- reminds me of Edward Hopper's Maine lighthouse painting :) -- and for sharing a favorite Fantastic Mr. Fox quote :) I also really enjoyed Meryl Streep as Felicity Fox and Jason Schwartzman's frustration as Ash. Haha, now I have the "Boggis, Bunce, and Bean" song stuck in my head! Hope you are both having a good weekend -- I will have to cave and finally re-watch The Grand Budapest Hotel this weekend :) (It was the only film that I saw three times in a cinema, all different vibes/sizes, over the course of its run.)
Response: Oh, I really liked that card too :) I'm glad you did... I have a bad habit of choosing cards which I'd like to get, which can be good but I have certain tastes :p I started watching The GBH a few weeks ago but was also making dinner / working at the time so I definitely have to watch it again, everyone tells me it's great. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Michael-that was the ugliest PC I have ever seen. Perfect! Good luck studying to be a pastor. I am Quaker and serve on our Ministry council. I've considered learning to be a hospital chaplain.
Response: Good to know I met the swap requirements. Good luck with all your pursuits! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the Map of New York! Looks like there is lots of things to do and discover. The stamps are pretty, too. WÃ¼nsche Dir viel SpaÃŸ beim Deutsch lernen und jetzt ein sonniges Wochenende. :)
Comment: Ahhh! I love both the illustration and the Puffin Books cover set -- on my wishlist :) Thank you also for the stamps (some of my favorites -- the Chippendale reminds me of Theo and Hobie in The Goldfinch!). I will have to check out the version you recommended; I also do like the idea of an Alice more true to Miss Liddell. Thank you for brightening my gloomy Wednesday!
Response: Also this rating, I'm so glad you liked the card. I got excited when I saw you'd like puffin books :D â™¥â™¥
Comment: Oh my gosh - The cards you sent are So beautiful, and most interesting. The Best! Thank you SoSo much for the gorgeous larger ones, and, especially for those recipe cards! -- Love them! Thank you So much for a Most Fabulous swap. Hope you had a Fabulous Fourth. Happy day to you - You deserve a million hearts for this send. - Oh - I loved the way you deco'd the envelope, too! Thanks again for a fantastic swap.
Response: Wow!! What a great rating, thanks so much! I wasn't sure where I could find a tourist type card with no city name on it but I took it as a challenge to pick some you'd like. I'm so glad it worked out, thanks for the heart! :D :D
Comment: This card is sooo cool!!! How I wish I could do this! I am not really a big fan of Michael bay but he has some good movies sometimes lol and I have never heard of that movie >.< but goodwill is always a good place to find good movies!!!! :D thank you for sharing your postcard :]
Response: So glad you liked it, thanks for the heart! - Kelly
Comment: Thank you for the adorable card! My boyfriend loves pugs, so he enjoyed it a lot!I would love to talk to you about board games and concerts! Aren't FOB and The Used awesome live?! I love live shows. Did you get a kitten yet or is it happening soon?
Comment: The cat Christmas card is so cute. Love the little hedgehog that is trailing after them. I love cards, too. This year I hung them on twine with fancy clothes pins. I like to display them different every year. Merry Christmas!
Comment: I am rating a 3, because this was sent 4 days late with absolutely no contact stating that it would be mailed out after the deadline.
Response: I guess there's nothing I can say about this other than if you look at the swap-bot date, it was sent out on time. My new post office is small. A lot of my mail got a couple days delayed during the holidays unfortunately. I tried my best. I don't think I'll be participating in Swap-Bot anymore.
Comment: Kelly, thank you for the resend. No apologies necessary because of what the post office does. I think they have a letter monster like the cookie monster. Also thank you for the extras. Shirley
Comment: Kelly, just love the Kitty Christmas card with the hedgehog at the end of the kitten parade. Where in the world did you find such and adorable Christmas card? Also thank you for the 2 dessert recipes. I always wanted a Italian cookie recipe. Now I have yours. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Shirley
Response: Oh I'm so glad you liked it :) my boyfriend's mother found them at Christmas Tree shops and I just had to get them! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Love the sparkly card and envelope! And I will have to try the ice cream cake! Nice poem, too! That's how my daughter found out about Santa - in the summer when we were cleaning out my closet, she saw the wrapping paper "Santa" had used and remembered it! Wish I had thought to tell her about Wal-Mart!! Have a very Merry Christmas!
Response: I have to admit, my parents were pretty quick with that one, it bought them a couple more years. :p Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Christmas card and extras. Loved your note about the presents. Thank you for the recipe, it really is simple and tasty. The little verse about Santa is hilarious but true. Shirley
Comment: Kelly! I love love LOVE this card! It's AWESOME! Thank you so much!!! It will be placed on my mantle where only the top 10 most awesomest cards go!!!
Thanks for the alice in wonderland cute stationery papers! I will use them happily in my planner!
Merry Christmas to you and Eric!!! Hope 2015 is the best EVER!!
Response: Wow, comments like yours are why I take the time to read people's profiles and pick out cards I think they'll like. I'm so glad I chose one that's mantle worthy! Thanks for the heart and I hope you have a great new year too!
Comment: This one has to be my favorite one i've received so far! KITTIES AND CHRISTMAS?! its just such a fabulous combo, and what gets even more excited is My cat Alice looks just like one of the kittens on the card! ^~^ Merry Christmas Kelly!
Comment: Thanks so much, Kelly for the beautiful cat Christmas card, I love it! Many thanks as well for the recipe for easy ice cream cake (oh yum!) and the hilarious cat Christmas carols, lol. Thanks for everything, and Merry Christmas!! :)
Response: Thanks for the heart! Merry Christmas :)
Comment: HAHAHAHahahaha!! I loved your list! Super cute! Thanks for the great decorated envie and very pretty card. I loved your fun Do's and Don'ts! This was a fun swap! Have a great Christmas Season! :)
Comment: Thanks Kelly! I LOVE the beautiful glitter card! We have been through the drive through lights before too! I always love them! Lights are one of my favorite things during the holidays! Have a wonderful Christmas to you too! Thanks for such a sweet swap! Hugs! :)
Comment: Such a beautiful card and such a lovely personal note...
Thank you so much for making this special, its people like you who make swap-bot a wonderful place!
Ps The envie decorations are cute and...I want to frame the way you addressed it, your handwriting is exquisite.
Response: Wow! I'm so glad you liked the card! I've been having so much fun this year picking out cards and decorating envies. I don't really swap for other things so I don't really have extras to send along so I try to make up for that by making each swap personal. And I've been trying to improve my handwriting so I'm glad that you like that too :) Thanks for the heart and your wonderful feedback !! â™¥â™¥
Comment: Such a pretty envie! Wow! How long did it take you to get alllll those tiny stars on there?! Thank you, and thanks for a very cute card as well!
Response: Haha it took forever! I had long nails so I had to find a creative way to peel them off (I used my letter opener ;) ) but I love stickers and decorated envies so it was worth it. Thanks for the heart!!
Pretty peacock card, thank you:) I like the circus stamp too and the way you decorated the envie, I have those little stickers too! :) I'm glad it got to me OK because you accidently put the wrong zip code.
Response: Oh boy, sorry about the wrong zipcode! I had done twenty or so cards that day at work where I am typing numbers all day so my mind probably got scrambled haha. So glad you got it and thanks for the heart!
Comment: I always had a fake tree growing up, when I was in my twenties I got my first real tree and after a couple of days of finding it hard to breathe - I realized I was allergic and kicked it to the curb. Poor neighbors thought there was a death in my family. I put up a couple trees (both fake) every year. Loved the card with the tree and your note. Merry Christmas!
Response: Oh no, that's too bad that you're allergic but I like fake trees anyway. They always stay perfect :) thanks for the heart!
Comment: Kelly, thank you for the beautiful Christmas card. If you ever go to Yankee Candle, keep going up the road a bit and you will hit the Deerfield Country Store and Richardson's Candy Kitchen. Bothe stores are excellent. Shirley
Response: Thanks for the suggestions! I'll definitely check then out!
Comment: Hi Kelly, Thanks for sending a lovely card it reflects the warm shared from house to house during the holidays. I am being blessed twice more this coming year with grand children. a boy and a girl added to our growing family! Wishing you lot of warm memories during the holidays
Response: Wow! What a nice way to end the year with two new grandbabies :) They're very lucky to be born into such a loving family! Thank you for the heart ! â™¥
Comment: Thank you Kelly for the large Christmas Greeting card you sent to me for the swap! Enjoyed reading the message you wrote in the card. Know how I appreciate you sharing how you feel about Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Response: Oh I'm glad you liked it. I've had just as much fun sending cards this year as I've had receiving them. I love finding pretty ones to send to all the nice swappers on here ^_^ Thanks for the heart, too!
Comment: After mailing 10 items this weekend (from Sat thru Monday AM), I received a bumper crop of mail myself including your postcard. What a GREAT funky card!!! Thanks for asking about AZ's fall/winter. No snow here in the Valley, which is FINE by me. I'm getting too old and arthritic for that stuff!!! Thanks for a fun swap.
Comment: Oh my goodness! I received your two fat envelopes of some of the most beautiful postcards I have ever seen! Thank you so much for your wonderful generosity. These postcards will be greatly enjoyed!
Response: Yay! I'm glad you liked them! I took care to try and pick cards I thought you'd like :)
Comment: YOU rock partner on this swap! I love the Cows PC from NY. What a hoot! I drive my hubby nuts when I say "oooh stop the car so I can take a picture of those cows." Drives him crazy. Nice to meet a fellow cow gal!
Comment: What a great card, thank you. <3 Yes I have visited 22 towns in Berkshire County. My husband and I spent many Sundays out that way stopping at Tanglewood to listen to BSO as an excuse to keep driving across the state. LOL We love it out there. We are looking forward to warmer weather to head back west.
Response: How cool! I don't meet all that many people who know much about the Berkshires :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful postcards - Fabulous assortment, too. Thanks for going out of your way to try and find ones that didn't have wording on the front, too... They're all great - Thanks again - Great swap - Happy day to you.
Response: I try to do my best to cater to my partner's profile... I'm glad you liked them all. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I dont know if you read my profile or if I just got lucky. I love bridge postcards. So what you thought was ugly, I am so thrilled about. Thank you also for jazzing it up on the back. It makes me smile. Thanks for hosting this.
Comment: Ding Ding Ding Cherry Cherry Cherry.....Ima winner.... lucky number 7!!!! Thank you so much. Just love it. And thank you for sharing. And the darling kitty too, pretty Valentine stamp, red ink, and mail stamps too. So pretty, x
Comment: Kelly you couldn't have picked a better card for me!. I needed a laugh & I got a good one. I too love these Little People postcards, but this one was new to me . I'm torn between wanting to keep it for myself & sharing it with a circus friend! Really appreciate your sending it blank in an envie. Happy days...
Response: Oh I'm glad you liked it. Someone sent me that one before and I loved it. :)
Comment: Thank you for the neat lists. Loved how creative you were. I did the same, just didn't seem right to do just one list in a special way so I did them all too. Seems like the tastes and smells are similar to mine but the music and movies seem to show a bit of a generation gap. Especially the music. I had to admit I didn't know any of them !!! Thanks again.
Comment: Thank you SO much for your fantastic postcard and all of the gorgeous stamps! I love your idea to use international stamps as well as the required US postage. Hope to see you in future swaps. xo
Response: Oh yay I'm so glad you liked it. I figured you have probably seen most US stamps and certainly the ones that I had so I chose some international ones that I liked :)
Comment: Kelly, your card arrived in the mail today. Thank you for the stamps and the "Merry Christmas" in Korean :) Save for one minor mistake at the beginning, it was very well written. Now to wipe all this glitter off my desk! Haha Merry Christmas.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and the postcard! It is very snowy here now, after that blast of winter we had on the week end. I haven't been to Buffalo in ages! Sorry it took me so long to rate you but I was in a lot of holiday card swaps! :)
Comment: Thank you, Kelly, for the lovely red ribbon-wrapped tree card. The trees looked like candy canes! No snow here either. I am listening to the pitter-pattering of rain falling out my back screen door, however. It's 68 degrees here, dark outside, and only 5:51 pm! Love this December Georgian weather! :) Have a Merry Christmas, and I hope it's a white one! (if you want a white one-ha!)
Comment: Oh my goodness Thank you so very much!!!! You went above and beyond the Swap requirements..... I am so thankful I love absolutely everything Such a treat I couldn't wait I had to open eveything. Thank you again.
Response: Yay! I couldn't wait for you to rate me because I was nervous that I did it wrong haha. I'm SO glad you like everything! :D
Comment: I understand why it took so long for you to get this sent , you had several post cards and one was oversized , it requires extra postage . I think you did a great job making up for lateness with the extra post cards , so I am definetly giving you a 5 and a heart for your great effort . thanks for a great swap
Comment: Love all the postcards that you sent...thanks for the BONUS, too! My favorite has to be the bordeaux vs. the cosmo...gosh, can't remember the last time I had a cosmo! (Need to do something about that.) LOL
Comment: Hi Kelly~
First let me tell you your handwriting is pretty neat! It decorates the envie all by itself. On to the postcards . . . love them! My favorite is the one by Junzo Terada. I had a whole set of his at one time but have sent them out. I'm so glad to have that one back again! And the Anne Taintor is priceless. Thanks for choosing thoughtfully!
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! I've been working on my handwriting so I'm happy to know you like that too :D
Comment: Oh my stars! Can you hear me screaming?? I can NOT believe I finally got the large letter for MA!!!! I have been waiting for so long for this! Thank you for reading my profile, many hearts and big hugs!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!!! :) Thanks for the heart
Comment: Thank you, nice variety of cards. I particularly like the fancy one with the Eiffel Tower. I never could buy gift cards here, but had some home made and some from a city 3 hours from here and then today, they opened a Dollar Tree store 2 blocks away and they sell tons of gift cards...lucky me!
Comment: I got your pictures today! Thanks for sharing your day with me, it seems you had a really nice day :D I loved the seahorse-picture, I'll be putting it on my fridge! I love going to concerts so seeing someone enjoy one was a treat :))
Response: I'm glad you got them! Thanks for the heart ^_^
Comment: Beautiful cursive writing. Such flair! I think you memorized my profile. All the cards are totally perfect. Such quality card stock. Three are embossed. Owls :) the Bird:) Paris is gilded with gold outlines and the envelope is matching art work :) the Purple floral with fairy is a companion card to a notecard I recd from another partner in this swap. You definitely have quality notecards at your stores and definitely great taste. Lucky Me! You have set the bar so high I can only strive to share the same quality notecards to my partners.
Response: Wow! I'm so glad you liked everything :) Every time I find pretty note cards my first thought is to share them with people ^_^ I love the gilded and glittery cards. Thanks a bunch for the heart!
Comment: I got this Postcard and I will mail it back today. Funny thing yours is a boomerang card, It says Boomerang remembers. I know AZMOM875 is doing some similar swaps like this called Boomerang postcard buddies or something close to that. Oh instead of being vague Boomerang PEN PAL postcard buddies USA http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/147849 and there is an international one too. Ok now I am just getting wordy.
Response: Thanks for letting me know about the swap! I signed up for it just in time!
Comment: I do love this card!!!! I could never live anywhere that did not have a cold and snowy winter :) My husband thinks I'm out of my mind but there is something so fresh and calming about a cold snowy day...
Comment: So cute! I LOVE that little sleeping girl dreaming of mail--that's me ;+) I do love the artwork of Junzo Terada and have a set of his postcards, but but I don't think I have that one--such a sweet kitty! I have one of his notepads and it's amazing. Thank you ;+)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it :D Thanks so much for the heart â™¥
Comment: If you gave these away because you don't like them - than how wonderful are the others? :) To me, these are totally great and thank you for sending them to me:)
Response: I forgot to write down exactly which cards I sent you but I think I chose some that don't particularly fit in my collection, but that you would like. So, I'm glad you like them!! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for resending! I'm hoping the original shows up one day.The damaged postcard I use for the swap icon was the first I mailed out, and it never made it, and I have no idea why. so I don't sweat it when they disappear :)
Update 17-May: your postcard was found, halfway down the chair I never sit in, buried under a whole pile of stuff. I'm so sorry you resent when I'd simply misplaced it, and I wish I could leave you multiple hearts as a thank you for resending
Comment: Thank you for sending a card that was listed as a like in my profile.. I myself do the same thing when picking out cards even when not required to.. I think it makes it just so much more personal that way! I have a bunch of Jetoy cards that I bought myself but not many rcvd and written on so thank you!
Response: I have the same thing, I bought a bunch but I like them written on so if I get one written on then I'll trade out the blank one :) Thanks for the heart !
Comment: I loved the card and the fact you just put the quote. Awesome! I'm always torn though bc i really did hate Johnny Depp's interpretation of the mad hatter. It was more just crazy Johnny Depp, and I hated the look. I wish they got some crazy unknown to do it but meh what can you do.
Response: I'm so there with you. And the story didn't make much sense. And he wasn't at all how I thought he'd be, and yes the makeup was awful.
Comment: You made my day with the Choochoo cat card! I had just discovered that this kitty existed and fallen in love. I was so surprised to find her in my mailbox!h
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I love giving them out but I don't come across many people that I KNOW like them, and although I bet a lot of people would like them, I want to give them to people who are big fans of Choochoo :)
Comment: I know how you feel about ill-timed dress wearing. The weather has been really nice in NYC lately, so I wore a nice summery dress. But then I ended up staying overnight at a friend's house, the temp dropped the next day and then I was an idiot and waited until the night to go home... Good. Job. Kate. Anyway, lovely PC - thanks
Comment: Hi Kelly! Thanks for the beautiful snow card from The Berkshires - I love the snow... the first time or two in the season... But I'm with you - it's April and we still have snow on the ground here in Blacksburg, VA too!!!
Comment: Thank you for your wonderful answers. If you have not already there is a great member on this site that loves postcards and her name is ARTG33K74 and her profile link information is:
Thanks for the awesome answers :)
Comment: Thank you so much! I adore the Alice in Wonderland and Sentimental Circus Kawaii stuff! *Happy Dance* My only bit of feedback is that the envelope got ripped in a couple places so I might've lost some flake stickers... so maybe reinforce the edges with tape next time you do a mail out. :)
I'm a happy girl, just sharing that bit of info to improve your swaps.
Response: Oh thanks for the tip I'll definitely do that from now on. I'm glad you liked everything :)
Comment: Kelly, thank you so very much for everything! I already have the two note pads in my desk drawer and love all of the postcards! Even the envelope was very adorable the way you wrote my name with the L and the Easter Eggs/Bunny. Super cute, amazing and very well put together! I greatly appreciate it and and hope to hear from you soon.
Respectfully, Linsey A. Daman
Response: Wonderful! I'm glad that the things I didn't want have a new home with you now :)
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous recipes!! They will be great fun to make special for the hubby :) Also, thank you for reminding me to put up a section about food and recipes. I rectified it tonight.
Comment: Love the Boston Light LightHouse postcard. Thanks so much and have a wonderful time when you visit this summer. I know what you mean about the cashier and the friends thanks for the chuckle. Have a Beautiful Day!!!! <3
Comment: Hi Kelly -- L O V E D this swap from you!!! Jetoy forever! :-) As for oceans: blue, salt water is they key! ----- and the papers are delightful! *** I sent a package to you full of Bulk Barn stuff and it came back undeliverable :-( I've checked your address and that's where I sent it. Makes me go "hmmmmmm".... I shall try again!
Comment: Hello again Kelly, Thank you for the Massachusetts coastal postcard. I have been hoping to receive that one for a while. It is a lovely card and I also love the historical facts on it. Thanks. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the pretty postcards, Kelly! I really like fountains, although I didn't mention it in my profile, and of course you know I love Norman Rockwell. I'm more than pleased with everything. :)
Comment: Hi Kelly, A pleasant surprise to meet a familiar name here! Thanks for the Cheddar Corn Chowder recipe. It is exactly the sort of recipe I like, so will definitely be making it soon. Thanks again.
Comment: I loved what you sent me! You guessed right; I thought the one with the apples was hilarious! The B&B looks like a lovely place and that church is deliciously creepy. You really cheered me up with those cards, the nicely decorated envelope and the lovely note you included. If you ever want to do a private swap that includes those tiny stockers you used on the note, feel free to send me a message :-).
Response: Wow, I'm so glad you liked everything :) I'm also always down for a sticker swap, or anything else for that matter, since I've pretty much bought out the stock of everything in my town haha. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: OMG OMG OMG what a cool way to present this swap...i love it... very creative..thanks for spending my money on things that i would love.. i will enjoy staying at the alex johnson hotel with the Haunted package deal..thanks..
Comment: Thank you for the candy! Laffy Taffy is definitely one of my forgotten favorites, strawberry being my favorite. I'm also envious that you have a British shop, being in NC we don't have anything like that.
Response: I'm so glad you got it, I was worried about not having enough postage on it. That shop is brand new and really random for the area but I'm so glad that it's here. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Jingle Kelly! (Cute name) Don't be sorry about the stamps! My postie loved them too! The letter is grand; sounds like you live in a to-die-for area! And yes, you probably drove by us once or twice, we're a breath away from St. Catharine's. You like Bulk Barn?? What are your fave items and I will send some stuff to you! And the Jetoy postcard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm over the moon! Thanks bunches!
Response: I think my favorite thing to get at bulk barn (besides the super cheap candy, like candy legos) would be all the cool sprinkles they have (I make my own cupcakes) and also they have great soup mixes too... That's probably the place I miss the most about Canada haha!
Comment: that was so sweet of you to send this post card to Whisky, I showed it to him but he just didn't get it...lol...it was cute! He does LOVE horses though but I guess they have to be real ones....
Comment: Hey Kelly, thanks for the NYC at night PC. Had to do a little investigating to see which swap the card was from though. You forgot to label it. No problem though, just wanted to give you a heads up. :)
Response: Oops! Sorry! Still new. I'll remember to label them now :)
