Comment: Thank you for the letter and photos! I love the one with the bee too. Working in your garden sounds like a wonderful pass time during quarantine. I loved the pic of you and one of your hens. My girls are pretty feisty too so they don't like to be pet or held, except one which i raised from when she was 2 weeks. She likes to be pet and loves to get her cheek rubbed.
Response: I'm happy you loved my photos, and the one of my chicken! Yours look so lovely! Thanks a lot for your nice comment
Comment: Great communication, we had an issue where we thought it had gone missing but it hadn't, mail on my end was being super slow. Thank you so much for this well thought out piece of mail and for your pacients. You rock
Response: I think all swap botters have to be patient, and communicate in case of problems because most of the time, there's no real problems, only worries because of the postal services! At least that's my experience! I'm happy you loved everything! Maybe we can be private swappers in the future!
Comment: Thank you so much for resending after the first one got lost in the mail! Such cute things, and the envelope is really pretty too! I especially love the bookmark :) It'd be fun to do a private swap in the spring/summer, just let me know whenever you want to do some!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything and it reached you so quickly! I'll contact you again in spring or summer for a private swap.
Comment: Hi Salome!
Thank you for such a touching letter and photos! I forget how much I rambled on my profile and it made me so happy you read through it! As for the year for the photos they have, I wanna say a aged/sepia feel to it. My first thoughts say 90s, but I can be bias cause I'm a 90s kid.
But I'd say a warm Sunday afternoon maybe? Also your home is so beautiful! All that green! The panda and lion were so beautiful! I shall put them in my journal!
I really want to send a response to your letter, but at the moment I'm getting over a cold and work has been really busy lately. However I will really try to write you back and send it out to you before the end of this month! Stay tuned?
Response: Sorry, I forgot to reply to your lovely, long comment, I love reading such long comments, thanks a lot! I'm happy my letter and photos pleased you so much! I was offered an Instax 2 days ago and I'm crazy about it, the quality is a lot better than the sprocket! I plan to host some Instax swaps in the coming weeks and months! I'd be happy to swap with you again!
Comment: oh my gosh!!!! i super love your package it’s so cute and i love everything!!! the paper quality is good and honestly i can barely tell the difference! i’ll be happy to have a private swap to trade different sorts of things :D Thank you so much im so glad that you were my sender <3
Response: I can't believe you received my swap so quickly, I thought it would take weeks and weeks! I'm really happy you love everything so much, I like pleasing people who have the same interest as me! I'll contact you someday soon to talk about a private swap.
Comment: Thank you for the big and lovely card 💛 I hope you're having a wonderful Christmas so far with new beautiful craft supplies!
Here in Portugal we mostly celebrate Christmas on the 24th dinner, we have boiled potatoes, codfish, egg, cabbage and a variety of desserts. We eat way too much and then open the presents at midnight! The 25th lunch is way more relaxed!
Have a nice 2020!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, note and wishes. Holidays are celebrated a bit differently in Poland. The most important day for us is Christmas Eve, because it is a time of meeting the family, reconciliation and peace. I will gladly write you some interesting facts about our traditions. Thank you for these extra goodies. Never enough of gift tags ;) Merry Christmas!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything, and thank you for the long comment! I think most of people in France celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, I'm not sure a lot celebrate it on the 25th as us.
Comment: Thanks so much for your lovely card and goodies. I really liked what you said about that feeling on Christmas day when time has stopped, so very true and I feel it must be the same for so many of us. Thank you, have a lovely Christmas.
Response: It's good to know I'm not the only one who feel this way! If only time could really stop, or Christmas day repeat again and again!
Comment: OMG! I loved the ghost stamp on the envelope. I am suffering with Anxiety and nervousness since the accident. So I know where you are coming from. Thanks so much for letting me take part in this swap. It was awesome.
Comment: Thank you for this neat swap. Whose face is that on the purple postage stamp do you know? Very nice textured back grounds on your ATCs. I loved your Halloween outfit!!! Great photos. I can tell you enjoyed yourselves. You are my first swap from France:-) I’ll try to send you my Halloween picture of being Jack Skellington. This was a fun swap I look forward to swapping with you again in the future 🎃
Response: I'm happy you loved my swap so much! On the stamp it's the French Marianne, a symbol of France. I'd be really happy to see some of your Halloween photos and maybe we could private swap for Christmas.
Comment: Greetings Partner & Host:-)
Thank you for the totally awesome swap!
I loved the ATCs!
I loved the letter!
I love the decorated envie!
I love the letter!
I loved the swap!
I’d love to be your pen pal if you’re interested🌻
Response: I'm so happy you loved everything so much! I'm sorry I have enough penpals but maybe someday we can be private swappers. The 2nd ATC swap will leave tomorrow.
Comment: Thanks so much for hosting this fun swap! I loved hearing about Halloween in France. My boys and I love Halloween. We here in the USA are flooded with Halloween stuff. The die cuts you sent are amazing and I will definitely put them to good use. Most of all, thank you SO much for your kind words. You are one of the people who make swap bot great for me!
Response: Thanks a lot for your very nice words! I'm happy I gave you joy! I plan to host similar swaps about Christmas in a few weeks.
Comment: Thank you so much Salome, the card you sent is lovely. I have put it on my fireplace for Halloween!
I really enjoyed reading your letter and learning about your Halloween traditions, I may even start hiding gifts in the garden to find at Halloween that sounds like such fun! I live Halloween my husband and I had a Halloween themed wedding last year and it was great. Many thanks Shelley xx
Response: I'm happy you loved my letter and I inspire you for making fun on Halloween night! You're Halloween themed wedding must have been amazing!! I wish you a happy Halloween!
Comment: Salomé, I loved your letter very much. Reading it filled me with a kind of happiness from childhood. It's very interesting to learn about Halloween traditions (or there lack of) in your country and town. I think it's quite magical you have a life partner that loves to dress up and celebratewith you. The photos of your costumes are awesome! I love that your cat dresses up as well, it's very cute! I hope you get to have a great Halloween this year and that it isn't too cold. We usually get snow in October here. Thank you very much for the goodies as well!
Response: I'm so happy my letter filled you with so much joy! Your words are really heartwarming to read! Thanks a lot!
Comment: Bonjour dear Salomé! I am sorry for this late rating, but I wanted to thank you for a great swap! I so loved the flipbook you made for me! It brought a big smile to my face. Thank you so much!
Response: I'm happy you loved it, it was great fun making it!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful pictures. Love the one with the pond. Just looks magical to me. I too love walking near the water and through the woods. Special being so close to Nature. Thanks again.
Comment: I love having you as a partner... both send-to and rcv-from! Water Lily (fav!), Cosmo and Rhody! oh bummer, that your own flowers are sun burnt. Great enve and Love the unicorn stationery. Thanks for everything!! ♥!
Comment: Hi, me again. Loved the pictures of the castles. I lived for a year and a half in Germany (near Heidelberg) and I kind of fell in love with them there. I did tour a few of them. Love anything historical. Thanks so much for sharing.
Comment: Hi thank you for the lovely photographs, we have a cat as well, just the one, I don't think t could manage any more than him, he's a handful :) I love Castles and it looks like a beautiful part of the world.
Comment: Salome, what beautiful photos you sent to me! The pink ones are like some that my mother used to grow; they look so delicate and fragile! And I love the happy little faces on the violets or pansies, whichever they are. I've always like those flowers! The other photo shows a wonderful color combination that I've never seen before - are they dahlias? Sooo pretty! I loved the envelope you sent them in as well - Castles fascinate me and if I were to visit your area, I'd definitely have to check out the one near you!! I agree with your boyfriend that it's very frustrating to buy flowers and look forward to enjoying their beauty throughout the summer, only to have the terrible heat burn them up! I hope next summer is not so bad, but who knows, right? Thank you for such a wonderful swap! Best wishes to you!
Comment: Hello :-) , thank you so much for this nice Swap. Thanks for all this tourist information to read, it will be nice to discover so many things about the wonderful places where you live. Many Greetings from Italy :-) !!!
Comment: I love your love story with Pichu! He is very lucky to have you find him and it seems like he's a sweet cuddler (like my LuLu who likes to be held as he goes to sleep!). Please say bonjour to Pichu and Dana from the Texas cats, LuLu, Baxter, and Cookie.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful photos in the lovely floral folder! I feel so special receiving something so nice. I loved the letter as welll! It was a great awesome swap in a nice pretty envie! Oh loved the picture of you too!
Comment: I just noticed that I still owe you a rating here… so sorry for the delay. You already know how much I loved your letter and to read about your sweet cats :-) Thank you so much for a lovely letter <3
Response: I still have do much to share about them with you!
Comment: Wow, the package you sent me is Awesome! Thank you so Very much. The photos are great, you were super generous with extras, and packed up with such care. And I loved reading your letter!. I can't decide which photo I like best... maybe the one of you next to the pond. ♥!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything! Those real photos swaps are my favourites! I'm your partner again for the critter edition, I won't be able to afford so many photos but I think you'll love those I'll send.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcards and the lovely letters on the back. I was in Paris last summer with my little girl and I have been there a few times before. I love Paris. Haven't been to the countryside of France yet, but seeing the pictures and reading your stories make me want to go there even more! Xx Monique
Comment: I need more than one heart to give you! So many goodies, wonderful pictures, and such a sweet letter!! I thank you a thousand times over! You inspire me to keep doing these swaps! I'm open to suggestions for themes :)
Response: I'm happy you loved everything! I'll send you a private message to give you suggestions!
Comment: Hello Salomé!
Thank you very much for your really nice and interesting letter and the lovely pictures you enclosed. :) It was nice hearing from you again. My letter was sent today and should reach you soon.
Comment: Thank you very much for your lovely letter, Salome! I really enjoyed reading from you. Such a pity that you aren't looking for new penpals but of course I do understand. Greetings from Austria!
Response: I'm happy you loved my letter! Sorry that I can't have more penpals, so many people ask me that I'd be overwhelmed with so many letters to write! I plan to create some Europe only swaps for May, check the new swaps if you're interested.
Comment: Thank you so much for doing this swap and all of the wonderful goodies you sent as well as the beautiful ATC! As well as sharing your beautiful story about spring with me!. I'd love to be possible penpal if your interested.
Response: I'm happy you loved everything so much! About penpalling I have to think before to accept, I already have some penpals and I want to be sure it wouldn't be too many for me as I easily feel stressed and under pressure when I have too many letters to write. But if you want we can private swap some things and short letters as the one I sent. Send me a pm if you're interested...
Comment: J’ai adoré lire ta lettre et j’étais super contente de voir que tu viens de France, c’est plutôt rare d’avoir des lettres écrites en français. Merci pour les extras et de m’avoir donné le nom de deux artistes ! Ça m’a fait rire quand t’as dit « glandouillé » parce que j’adore utiliser ce mot. Le zoo de Beauval a l’air d’être vraiment sympa !
Response: Je suis contente que tu ai aimé ma lettre! Oui c'est rare de trouver des français ici mais pour un prochain échanges l'une de mes partenaire est aussi française ! Si un jour tu veux faire des échanges privé, n'hésite pas a me contacter !
Comment: Thank you for the very glittery card!
I learned to drive on snow, so it's no big deal for me =) But we haven't had much of it yet. It has been cold, but when nothing falls from the sky, there will be no snow ;P
Comment: Oh my, you must have a'ladda supplies to resource from! Each item I pulled out had my attention. I have organized them in front of me now and wow! I'm smiling - thank you for putting SO MUCH thought in details and catering to my profile. I love it all.
Comment: Hi Salome,
Thank you very much for the lovely stationery you sent me - the duck themed papers are simply adorable! Actually, they are so adorable that I'm not sure I'll even manage to use them :D
Have a lovely summer!
Comment: Really thought-provoking letter. I enjoyed reading it and will definitely write back. :)
Response: I'm happy you loved my letter, I'm always a deep thinker, even too much! It will be heartwarming to receive an other letter even if I think I won't be able to write back but I'll let you now...
Comment: I loved the handmade card! I never thought about other countries not celebrating Halloween until you mentioned it! I hope you have fun! P.S. I still very much believe in spirits and ghosts. :)
Comment: It is very colorful and I like the way you ripped up the book page and reattached it-stamping the dragonfly and then adding a diecut one was another very creative move! Thanks for the extra Halloween notepaper=Happy Halloween to you too!
Comment: Thank you very very very much for the envelope full of awesomeness:):):) I love it :):)This really made my day :):):)I will pass on the idea of giving:):)â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: It's so heartwarming to read such happy comments! I'm really happy I made you so joyful!
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC, Salome! It's so gorgeous and I love the textured and layered look! And please let me know whenever you'd like to do a private swap, I'm always interested :)
Response: I'm happy you loved my ATCs! I love craftying for others. I'm already in some private swaps but I won't forget you and I'll contact you someday. If you really really want to do private swaps, send me a pm
Comment: If I could give you a million hearts I would! This atc is so, so cute! I love it very much! All of the extras you sent are great, and your letter was absolutely wonderful! I can't express how happy it made me when I read it. I think that the happiness someone has when creating something is the mark of a true artist. Thank you so much.
Response: Such comments are so heartwarming to read and it worth all the efforts I make in my art and gifts. Thanks a lot for writing so nice things!!
Comment: Thank you so much for both the ATC. They will fit in nicely with the rest. I know what it's like, wanting to join a group when you don't know anyone. I tend to work alone myself. I would like a good quilt group, though. Thanks also for the extras. Hope we swap again.
Comment: Hi Salome! Thank you sooo much! Yours was the first ever swap I received and it was so special. The envelope, the note, and of course the journaling cards: everything was perfect, and so much more than I could have hoped for. I was also so surprised to receive mail from France. Everything was fantastic and really made my week! Thank you! =)
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC and extra die cuts. I will enjoy using them. We used the same quote! See mine here: https://plus.google.com/photos/116475306870159229859/albums/5908775734597733169/5974246483293486882?pid=5974246483293486882&oid=116475306870159229859
Response: Hey, that's a funny thing that we used the same quote! It was the one I loved the most of all those I found :)
Comment: Thank you. I do love the earrings you sent, the long dangly pink/silver ones are just amazing! Thank you also for visiting my blog/etsy shop, and for the sweet compliments. :) The ATC you sent is great. I forget that the pyramids were the start of stargate, because I usually watch the later seasons, were those aren't the main focus anymore. This is like, "old-school" stargate. Thanks again!
Comment: wonderful! awesome atc's but that stationery and envelope were equally terrific...thank you for such a good swap you created and the wonderful atc's you made..i enjoyed your letter and the stamp of alexander yelsin...thanks so much
Comment: Thank you! I really enjoyed reading your letter! I love the stationary! It's so cool! My mom read you letter and she loved it too! You are awesome! Thank you so much for sharing. Have A Spooktacular Halloween! :)
Response: Thanks a lot for your nice comment, I'm really happy that you and your mom loved my letter, it's pleasant to bring some joy to people!
Comment: What a lovely letter - it made me chuckle a few times with your story of your cat! And thank you for all the fun cat goodies - even the napkin which is great since it has cats on all panels! I loooooove that you included the Holland stickers for me even though you didn't need to. I am goofy about Holland so they will be cherished. No one else gets them!
Comment: Hi Salome, Thanks for the lovely ATC! Your ATC is great and I think you will find making them fun and addictive!! LOL Thanks for the extra trim papers and the fairies and kitties!! I love to receive letters and enjoyed reading all about you. Your bunnies sound great! Thanks for a great swap and it is nice to meet you! :)
Comment: I can't believe this is your first ATC. You did a fabulous job, I'm happy to hear your bunny is better. It sounds like you and your boyfriend have a lot of fun together. Thank you too for the Halloween pages.
