Comment: I LOVE my post card. We have been to the Titanic Museum in Gatlinburg and I had the honor to meet a man that actually got to dive down there and help bring back stuff from the titanic , so I was surprising to get your card. Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you for your letter on such pretty stationary. I'm not adding pen pals but I do like to answer questions when they come in the midst of an interesting letter, so I will dash off a shortish letter.
Comment: Thank you for your postcard! It made me smille, these view of bears! :D
And thank you for the story about Phd of your daughter. Seems that it's often issue that Phd studies aren't what we wish for :) Have a nice day!
Comment: Oh, Marcie, I'm so lucky you're my sending partner! You sent such beautiful, vibrantly colored cards. I love them all! My absolute fav is the card with the giant saguaro cacti--really neat! Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank you so much for your card and letter! It rained all day and this evening. About time for all good little goblins to be in bed it stopped raining. I was so surprised at how many kids still came out in the pouring down rain. Batman even shook my hand and thanked me for the candy. LOL! He was so cute!
Comment: Thanks for the fun card! I bet that the Delaware beaches were just lovely. I've never been to Delaware but I've heard good things about their coast line. It hasn't started snowing here yet, but it is almost at that point! Its been in the 40s and 50s during the day though and it makes the hiking much more comfortable to do.
Comment: I am flabbergasted! I had bought a huge stack of these B&W church postcards on ebay and then I get one from you!!! What a small world!!! I thought maybe someone had used one that I sent in another swap but you said you got at an antique store! Crazy!
Comment: Thanks for your note - I was just up at Dulles last week! I have some customers in the area, and get up there once a month or so. Thanks also for the great stickers and ephemera! I love everything you sent. BTW - my son graduated from VCU Arts in 2015. We've probably passed each other on 95 many times :)
Comment: Hi Marcie -- re: the White House maybe not being a national park or monument ... 1. I'm not a stickler for hitting the requirement precisely. Happy to get any card! 2. I used to give tours in Washington Dc in 1980s and I could easily make up reasons why this card counts -- it is a "public" (owned by the people) historical house after all. it's a shame it's so barricaded these days -- disappointing for the tourists. Best, al
Comment: Thanks for the letter and pretty sticky notes! You asked when is a good time to visit the Dakotas. I lived the first 35 years of my life in ND and then moved to SD so I've had experience with both. :) I would say mid May through mid September. Outside of those months you could run into bad weather. As far as books go I've branched out and will read a lot of different genres. I stay away from anything too heavy in history but other than that I'm pretty open! Thanks again!
Comment: I will have to look up the book you mentioned! It sounds really good. I also read Danielle Steele because my mom had so many of the books around the house when I was growing up. They're something comforting about the writing. It's familiar to me. So I understand the guilty pleasure read.
Comment: Thank you for the early send! I was very surprised and twice as pleased to meet you. I will write you back as soon as I can. And the for these unique stickers. I will return your kindness ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thanks for the postcard, Marcie! I recently saw a 60-minutes story on the sons of the Rosenberg spies who were executed. And the boys needed to stick together all their lives in the name of love - like The Sisters Chase!
Response: I read a book about the Rosenberg I'm definitely going to watch this.
Comment: Thank you for the typewriter note card and sharing the books you have read along with those you want to read. I believe I only recognize one book on both of your lists so I will have to look into the others.
Comment: i appreciate your beautiful card & love that the old stamps are being usefully recycled for the benefit of many - someone just asked me how i could part with the old stamps i use, too ... it just seems a waste otherwise & thankfully,
they can continue to be used as postage!
Comment: Very cute pocket letter thank you! I like the vintage flower diecut you used in the one pocket...I always forget to dig into my vintage ephemera when it comes to pocket letters for some reason but it is a wonderful thing to do and the washi tape in back is so pretty :)
Comment: Hi Marci! Loved the Seattle Umbrellas pc! I visited there several years ago and loved it! Does it rain as much as I have heard it does? When we were there the weather was amazing! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you - I really enjoyed your letter and the washi samples are super cute! My grandparents and their neighbors used to take turns hiding lawn flamingos in each other's yard, so the flamingo washi reminded me of that. :-)
Comment: When I received your swap today I got nervous! I thought I had sent mine out wrong so I went back and read the directions, it was for 1 random PC sent naked & stamped. But I can see how you made the mistake from the title of the swap :) But I really appreciate the 4 blank PCs because I am in Postcrossing like you are and I am always running low on PCs. Thank you Marcie!
Response: Oops I guess I just looked at the number 4 and breezed through the swap directions. Enjoy.
Comment: Marcie, thank you so much for the cute card and the extra stickers!!! You are so sweet! Sounds like an awesome day, especially on the boat at the lake! We love evening boat trips too. So sweet about your little grandson and wonderful that you get to visit so often! And no I don't think I'll be able to fit a car seat in my mini... :'( I'm so sad!
Also, LOVE the cool stamps you used!! Where do you find such unusual ones?
Comment: Thanks for sharing! There's a couple on there I might check out :) Also, totally unrelated, but I LOVE your address label!
Response: I love those labels too. When I wrote to my kids in college their friends would tease them about the label. Once my son walked in to his fraternity and it was hanging on the wall. I get them from familylabels.com
Comment: Thanks so much for all the lovely goodness you sent! The PC selection was most awesome too! Thanks for the stamps. That's great that you're using them rather than letting them sit in a drawer or envelope. Thanks so much!
Comment: love the card. I saw the Pentagon from the bus on a scout trip to DC. I have been a scout leader from Brownie to Senior/Ambassador for 2 troops...now a helper for my granddaughter's troop. I loved camping but can't do it now. :(
Comment: Yes, my grandsons all live near by. Try to stay cool at your weddings this weekend. My newest grandson will be born this weekend. Thank you for everything. We will both have happy events for this weekend.
Comment: Hello Marcie,
Thank you for the Mini Pocket Letter you made and sent to me. The letter was fun to read I appreciate the items you sent me in each pocket. Since this is your first pocket letter I want to give you one word of advice--decorate your papers inside and don't necessarily decorate the plastic.
Response: Thanks for letting me know that. I wasn't sure about where to decorate. Wasit fine otherwise?
Comment: Thanks for the book - I haven't read it, so I'll put it on my to-read pile. :)
You didn't include your swap ID or the name of the swap anywhere, though, so I had to go through each swap in order to rate you. Please be sure to write the name of the swap and your swap-bot ID next time. :)
Response: Sorry about that I left the note I wrote on my desk.
Comment: Thanks for the Cape Cod card, Marcie! There are some nice Colorado lakes to boat in-look up Grand Lake - it's a beauty right outside Rocky Mountain National Park. And would you believe the tallest sand dunes in North America are in Colorado? My home state might surprise you! thanks again, Carol in Denver
Comment: Hello Marcie! Thanks for the great vintage card. I love it. Hope the weather improves so you can get out on the water. We have had lots of rain, but it is good for the garden. :) Best Wishes, Jan
Comment: Your packet was wonderful. Thank you so much. If I could give you 5 stars, I would! Do you know, the post office didn't cancel ANY of the cool stamps you used on the envelope?
Response: When I weighed the card the postal worker was going to stamp it. I said I'll drop it in the box most of the time nobody cancels them and be laughed. I'm new to this how do you get stars. I've been thinking I wanted to history my own swap but I'm a little nervous about it. Have you done one?
Comment: Thanks for the cards! I especially like the one with the doughnuts! I also appreciate the extra postcard, and your use of real stamps. I am absolutely mesmerized by the Electronics stamp, it is so very cool. Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for the Washington monument card. I missed going to DC this year--usually go in late April for a conference, but was busy selling the house this year. Always so much to do!
Comment: Thank you for the really cool card. I really like it. I was just in DC for a conference a couple weeks ago. I really enjoyed it. I hope you get to move to San Diego. I have lived here 11 years and I love it.
Comment: Thank you for the mysterious, dusky view of the Lincoln Memorial -- I loved visiting Washington, D.C. in eighth grade and again with my family as a high school junior during the summer -- and for sharing your TBR list! The Leavers and Into the Water are familiar to me, but I will have to give the others a look :) I really enjoyed A Gentleman in Moscow, which I spy in the background, and Mr. Towles's stylish debut, Rules of Civility. Happy reading! :)
Comment: Thank you for the vintage books card (I can smell the lignin/that "library smell" just looking at it :), Mercury stamp (I never got my hands on that solar system set, just the Pluto mini-sheets, even if I was at the World Stamp Show last summer...), and for sharing your current read with me! I am almost finished Swing Time by Zadie Smith; I've wanted to find out the ending while also not wanting it to end. So neat that you were married in New Orleans! I still smile to see second lines gaily dancing down Royal Street on Saturday afternoons/evenings, although the recent Family Guy gag lampooning them is pretty accurate :)
