Comment: Hello Samantha, i received your envelope this morning after so many months. Thanks for the 3 postcards and for used stamps, but the swap was for "any small NEW item like a key holder, fridge magnet, souvenir from a trip." I'm sorry but i cant give you a 5 because it's not fair for other partners who sent exactly what the swap wants.
Comment: Belated thank you for the cool vintage Vista House card! Hope you were able to get laundry done, find a spiffy shirt to wear to the concert, and read a new book! I always feel like I *just* did laundry, haha.
Response: I literally did about 20 minutes ago! Always gotta be on top of it I feel LOL.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Sound of Music postcard! It brings back fond memories of getting to watch it on the big screen in its 50th anniversary two years ago (whoa!) with my mom, who recalled her 80s monthlong trip to Europe, which included several days in Salzburg (still on my travel wishlist :) Hope you're having a good last week of June!
Comment: You should help me with my German! lol. I keep wanting to continue with it but always get caught up in something else. :P "Walk Away the Pounds" sounds like a good exercise plan! I find it easier to get in a walk every day when time is short. Cheers! :)
Comment: Belated, belated thank you for the excellent vintage Paul Revere card -- I love deckle-edged vintage postcards and photographs :) -- and for sharing your then-current TV show (I need to re-watch The Office again, so many great moments and lines T_T), read, travel wishlist (I want to visit all of those countries, too), and Myers-Briggs personality type! I actually cannot remember what mine is, when I took it in high school for career placement testing or in more recent years ^_^;; Hope you are having a good week and a full mailbox!
Response: That's where I took mine too! I remember it being a lot of fun. For awhile there I was obsessed with the personality tests! Thank you for the nice rating!
Comment: Thank you for your list. Double decker buses can be scary when they're speeding round country lanes! I too would love to see the Northern Lights too. I went to Iceland a couple years ago but didn't get to see the Northern Lights as the weather was too bad.
Comment: Ahh--we do have some cool commonalities! Thank you for the tea! I LOVE peach tea & mangoes so that was a happy surprise. You know, you sent your address, I think I'll send a letter & maybe we'll be pen pals (no pressure though!)! :) â™¡
Response: Hey! That's awesome! And I'm always down for a good pen pal. :-)
Comment: I think sepia tones count as black and white...at least they do in my book! I've never ordered anything from Ali express. I've always wondered how reliable it is. I've been burned on international online ordering. Thank you for the card!
Response: Aliexpress is pretty reliable. I've ordered 30+ things all from different people and so far no problems. :)
You just have to watch feedback and the things in the title aren't *always* reliable.
Comment: I am so, so sorry for this late rate. Yes. I can always use another pair of gloves. And I can't tell you how much swiss chard I plant each year. A LOT. Now, I will have the isamanthax row of chard. :)
Comment: Wow, this is wonderful! Filled with poetry and pretty hand drawings! I feel like i know you a little better!! Fantastic!! Enjoy your Easter! You spent a lot of time on this!! Bravo! Thank you!
Response: Oh thank you so much for all the kind words. Enjoy! I had sooo much fun making it. :) Happy Easter to you too!
Comment: Thank you ma'am!! And no, I have never gone to a postcard fair. How did it go?
Response: Super good! Had a lot of fun, nice people there! It was nice, if there's one near you and not too far of a drive - I'd recommend maybe even just a quick walk thru. There must have been at least a million postcards on the tables!
I love the postcard! And yes, I loved the Bates Motel. I flew through it quickly as well. I also did that with Criminal Minds, Haven, and am currently working on Supernatural. :)
Comment: Thank you for your letter and sharing your thoughts with me. It was so sweet of you to write to me personally while reading through my profile, and I enjoyed hearing from you. Have a nice day. :)
Comment: How did wisdom teeth extraction go? I remember having mine removed and looking like a chipmunk for a week and I couldn't talk.
Response: I'm super sore. Why did I wait to do this? LOL. Day four here, I've got super big cheeks... And yep, it is hard to talk. Had to go out in public today, of course, of all days, everyone chooses this one to strike up a conversation in the middle of the store, PO, street, everywhere.
Comment: Thank you for your postcard the building reminds me of one of those old haunted buildings that ghost hunters do TV shows on. I am glad you like The Office as they are great for a good laugh...lol
Comment: Thank you Samantha for your seasonal greetings <3 Have lots of fun and enjoy achieving all your goals!

Response: Thank you!! <33 Love that you wrote it in another language. ^.^ Have a great 2017!
Comment: Thanks for the nice card! I've watched a couple of your favorite tv shows--House and HIMYM. I usually catch up on The Big Bang Theory over the summer. My current favorites are Legion and The Expanse. Both sci-fi.
Comment: Recieved yr card. Thks but u were suppose to Send 5 postcards blank in an envelope to each partner.. Update 19 July: responded ages ago both swap not received. no form of proof was provided to show swaps were ever sent.
Response: Update: 3/29/2017
I realize I have sent the wrong thing for this swap, already contacted the partner and agreed to fix this swap. Shipping new swap out: 3/29/2017
Partner says they still have not received this... yet they received my second ship out. I have no idea what is going on.
Update: 7/3 No word so I'm assuming this rating stays as is, sadly. I believe it is an unfair one considering they received my card but not both swaps.
Comment: Hi Samantha, yes i did a 6 months internship in Germany way back in 2007. Back then my German was a boarderline pass. Super difficult to converse properly with anyone. I just talked using adjectives with minimal sentence structure. I hope the German Language has been good to you. :)
Response: LOL I can relate because this is basically me in my German class. I'm trying but language learning *IS* hard!
Comment: Such a pretty notecard, and LOL about your comment about the swap requirement:-) Sorry your dog was sick. BTDT with the chicken and rice thing - they sure do gobble it up, don't they? Hope puppy is feeling better and you are well, too.
Comment: Hey Samantha! I've had great fun reading through your February journal. Love your handwriting. Lots of interesting ideas....like the personality quiz,recipes, your goals, movies to see, songs, journaling prompts, spring bucket list, mental map, (love your drawings) and all of the lists....you gave me some great ideas for the next journal swap! Thank you for the goodies you added; had an immediate use for the St. Pats Day stickers! I really enjoyed reading all of the thoughts you shared. Thanks very much!
Response: I am SO happy you loved it! You can't even see how big I'm smiling right now. I just kinda went with what I was feeling for the journaling part. :) And the extras of course were nothing much, just something I hoped you would enjoy. Thank you for the heart and rating!
Comment: Thank you for sharing so much with me. The name of your first pet made me laugh because my current fur baby's name is Princess too! ðŸ˜„ If you liked "The Theory of Everything" you may enjoy the book "Little book of string theroy" it is very interesting.
Response: Aw!! Those cutsie names are adorable for little ones. I will have to check out that book...
Comment: Thank you for the super cute card and stickers! I love the Office...Have you seen the British version? It was the original, quite different from the American version but awesome. By the way, I loved this swap idea, thank you for hosting! ðŸ˜ŠðŸ€
Comment: Thanks for the great card and stickers! I enjoyed your note too. Nice to know we have some things in common. Part of the charm of sharing this hobby. Thank you! From one "Middle" fan to another :) Love the leprachaun!
Comment: Samantha we do get paired up a lot lately. Lol. Seeing a card in mail from u always makes me smile. Thank u so much. We have completely caught up with greys and there are some surprises. Take care. Mindy
Response: We have been paired up a lot! Always fine with me though, you're a good partner. :) Happy swapping and thank you for rating.
Comment: I love this PC! It is beautiful. Thank you so much! This is one PC I'm delighted to look at on paper. I would probably fall out if I had to climb the 250 steps to get to the place where this photo was taken. LOL!
Comment: Hello Samantha,
Thank you for your envelope of paper goods you sent me for this swap. I really like the dollies and the card you sent ne, As well, I like the "to do" list paper. I will find use for all these paper goods. Have a great day!
Comment: Thanks a lot for your review! The plot reminded me a little bit of the story of Natascha Kampusch, I think she wrote a book as well, if you are interested in the topic you should check it out :-)
Comment: You've got quite the crowd! So many pets! While I'm sure they certainly keep you busy, you're probably surrounded by so much love! Animals are the best :) Thank you for your card! Cheers, Analise
Comment: Thank you for this hilarious, if all-too-scarily relevant, Yuppie's Prayer card (I have never seen it before) -- I was just singing "You Are What You Wear" from American Psycho in the car with my sister yesterday! -- and for sharing more about yourself, Samantha! I also have an extreme aversion to leeches and don't believe in love at first sight, although deep down, I am an optimist, in general. Happy Monday!
Comment: random facts bout me:
i do believe in love at 1st sight! i married my first husband after only 2 weeks.
i am very outgoing
i hate my full birth name and so i go by mindy.
thanks for the super cool cartoon pc i loved it!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, I haven't watched some of your favorite shows, so I'm going to check them out! I've been wanting to watch Bates Motel and Scream. I LOVE Criminal Minds and Stranger Things!
Comment: A list in my valentine card? How very random of you...I love it!! The card is very cute and I love the stickers all over the card and envelope. Thank you so much, I really enjoyed your mail! â˜ºðŸ’Ÿ
Response: I'm so glad! I was a little weary of doing lists but hey! someone enjoyed! Have a good day and thanks for rating!
Comment: Thank you for letting me read your thoughts. I hope you feel better soon. Migraines aren't any fun..I hope your betta makes it, we had a betta for 4 years. I miss him. I'm a loner too. I have a few friends, but they have moved away. But it gives me places to visit. Hope your enjoying your day. Happy Swapping.
Comment: Thank you ! (Just a tip for the future...there was no note card, or letter, or anything saying what swap this was for- so I had to hunt around for where to rate- so please put your swapbot info, name of the swap, etc...)
Response: Really? Darn, sorry about that. I have been real good on doing that. Must have forgotten this one.
Comment: Thank you so much! This book is so perfect for where I am at now and I appreciate you sending the stickers on the package which my 6 year-old daughter was very excited for! (Her birthday party was Shopkins themed lol).
Response: Oh! I'm so glad ah! And that also; Tell I said a happy birthday, please.
