Comment: Hi ~ I am so sorry for the late rating. Your very pretty card got mixed in with Christmas paper I was keeping to use in my junk journal. I know, really called hoarding, lol. My favorite Christmas movie is “It’s a Wonderful Life”, actually was in color this year. And yes, I cried at the end! I hope you had an awesome Christmas. Take care ~Judy
Comment: Thank you for the cute card! My favorite tradition is sleeping late and then taking a walk by the ocean with my dogs. I love the sound of the ocean. It's so calming after a hectic year. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the cute owl notecard and tuck-ins. You should try making your Christmas cards. It's a lot of fun and easy once you get going. I usually look on pinterest for ideas that are easy to make in multiples. Even if you make some and buy some, who will know? I have an artist friend that creates a different Christmas stamp every year. His postcards are limited and numbered and I get so excited when I receive one of them. Good luck!
Comment: Cool card! Thank you!
After grade school, high school, undergrad, master's, and then doctorate... believe me, I've had enough of school.
And yet, as a pharmacist... I have to complete continuing education every two years. Ugh.
Comment: Thank you so much for the gifts! I love the constellation stickers so much. And the letter set! My sister just moved to London, maybe I'll send it to her! Also, your sign of "have a great day and a better tomorrow" really made me smile. Thank you so much!
Comment: What a pretty notecard and bookmark! I enjoyed reading your note😊. Thank you! I have read many of Bentley Little’s earlier books, and although that’s not a genre I usually read, they were good. My favorite one is The Store.
Comment: Hi Gina, I’m totally the opposite of you and I love fall. An apple cider cake sounds delicious. I hope you can enjoy the girls scout stuff. I’m sure the girls will appreciate this year more than most. Take care.
Comment: Thank you for the cute little card. I will admit usually I don't like Fall either, but I keep telling myself Fall is not winter. That cider cake sounds amazing!!! I hope you have a great Fall! Thank you for the goodies!!!
Comment: Hi Gina, nice to meet you! Thanks for the nice letter and stickers, I love them! I hope you have a nice vacation. I'm about to go out of town as well. I will try to write you back before then ☺️
Comment: Lol two swaps in a roll from you! I love the gradient stick its! And all the washi samples! I was confused by that swap too. I thought three to three means one to each.... I don’t know if I get private massage I’ll make up for it. Anyways love your note card! I have been hosting a color themed mail art happy mail and I have a lot of fun in that swap! If you are interested I can massage you next time I host that!
Comment: I am 100% virtual until Fall 2021 now; I thought it was bad, but chillin watching tv while doing reports is amazing; as well as mini walks throughout the day, and looking for a new dog, so it is ok! I get you!
Comment: Thank you for the nice note and goodies. NYC is a ghost town. The smart ones got out. I have not been on a subway in 3 months and am not looking forward to the time when I will have to go back to work!
Comment: Thank you for sharing. If I could live anywhere, it would be at the ocean where there is a boardwalk (like Wildwood, NJ). We will get a condo there in 10 years, go but also rent it out. ahhh...my happy place. Thanks for the inserts as well. Enjoy your day.
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard! To answer your question - I keep my stamps in a binder. I organize them in baseball card sleeves by denomination! I can see them all easily that way. Hope this helps!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool PC! Yes it is hot here. We went to the lake this weekend (I always thought it was cooler around water) and it was 104. I stayed inside and worked on quilting. Smart! LOL!
Comment: I am SO SORRY for the late rating -- I was just going through all my swaps and found a few I missed - including this one. I loved the photos though, and the Rudyard Kipling book is a classic! Great memories!!
Comment: Great photos, Gina! In looking at your bookshelf. . . Every time I see a copy of It, I'm astonished by how very big it is! I'm intimidated by its size, too! :-O I haven't read anything Anne Rice wrote as Anne Rice. I hope you'll enjoy that book! :-) That's so great that you have a book gifted to you by your grandmother. My own grandmothers (x3) never gave or give me books. In fact, I think I might be the first member of my family who gifts books! And that cover of Just So Stories! I hope the elephant is able to get away from that alligator! :-O Thank you so much for sharing! :-) <3
Comment: i like that you have found a fruit of your fave!
that profile pic is very juicy!
i recently went to a hotel that is part of the pineapple chain of lodgings - it was very nice, with free mini-cupcakes as part of
their hospitality ~ sweet concept!
Comment: Good luck. That's really great that you want to quit smoking. I don't smoke for almost 7 years, so hope you will you will quit this habit for good too. I feel better now, and it is a big money saving. Happy 2018!
Comment: The second I saw that your favorite vacation was to Jellystone Campground, I was all, "Jellystone?! Isn't that where Yogi Bear lives?" So I was DELIGHTED to see a picture of one of your daughters with Yogi Bear! â¤ Great swap, Gina. Wonderful photos! Thank you so much for sharing.
Comment: Sorry for the late rating u_u I'm with you on loving Halloween<3 It definately is better than Christmas! I'm mostly subscribing to baking-magazines which isn't too good since I want to try half the stuff they come up with and don't have enough people to eat everything :D I love the doodles, I'm much too stick-in-the.old-behind-type of a person to have a bullet journal, I'd get excited for the first week and then when I'd inevitably miss a day or something I'd leave the whole thing behind :D Oh free tote! I'm sucker for canvas bags and that looks just about perfect in every aspect ;)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful photos or your town. I used to have a great group of friends/neighbors when I lived near Manasass VA. We did everything together. Our kids are all grown up and soem of us have moved away, but we still keep in touch. Have a great summer at the beach.
Comment: Thank you so much for sending the email again!!!
I love your fog-pictures and the abandoned farmhouse. They gave me the creeps...
The flower you took a picture of looks like some sort of hibiscus. I have some in my garden and they get very shy after they bloomed for some days. :)
Comment: I envy you a bit. I've never had the experience of living alone as I moved right from my parent's house in with my husband, but I have been to Philly and it's a wonderful city. I would love to go back one day.
Comment: Hi Gina,
Such amazing photos and detail. It looks absolutely beautiful too. I should head on over there one day. I'll send a more detailed email to ya soon thanking you for stuff. :)
Take care from Australia.
Comment: Thank you for your amazing list! Firstly I was wondering why you check your postbox only when it's full,but then I finished the sentence and I realized it was before snail mailing :D I'm also very excited to go out to the mail box (I'm snail mailing too), I always check the postman from our window, and when he leaves, I go out immediately :D
I remember, when I was a kid, my mother told me if I eat the food, I will be a little angel, but if I live something there, the devil will take me away. Well, I don't need to say that I ate the food all the time as I wanted to be an angel :D (I'm too maximalist!). I guess it's a good way to teach kids to eat everything what they get.
Comment: Awesome PC! Thanks so much:) I am mostly hoping the tulips I planted last year actually come up this Spring. The snow has only just been gone a week though so it's a bit early to see green growing things, fingers remain crossed;)
Comment: Thanks for the puzzle ðŸ˜‹ Unfortunately the envelope split along the top and it was missing eleven pieces but I was able to puzzle out most of the message. I'm going out for pizza ðŸ• and beer ðŸ» for my birthday tonight and to a St. Patrick's Day parade in Ybor Saturday night so it should be a good weekend. Plus next week is Spring Break, no work, yay! My friend gave me a new game called Tak so that should be fun too. Have a great St. Patrick's Day weekend, Nathan
Response: OMG!!! I am so sorry!! I am gonna send you another one!! Hope you had tons of fun this weekend. haha I made pizza this weekend. No beer though :( Lucky you no work this week. I start a new job tomorrow lol enjoy your time off!!
Comment: Ok. Can I tell you that every one of your things to brag about was BADASS!!
I am renovating a house by myself so I am super impressed that you cut down the tree on your own (tell me how lol) and that you're doing sideboard! (also tell me how haha)
Enjoyed reading your letter! You rock! :-D
Comment: Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you got to snooze a little longer & relax (: I would love to attend a jazz club with a few drinks and a nice dinner in Seattle for my next Birthday. Take care. ~RS
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful vintage view of historic downtown St. Louis -- I hope to visit Christ Church Cathedral one day :) Thank you for sharing your favorite 2016 memory; I'd love to visit more National Parks starting this year! Wishing you many more happy memories in 2017!
Comment: Thanks for your answers. Lost World is one of our favorite movies in this house. ANY Jurassic Park is really The MR loves them, and my like for them has grown since I've seen them SOOO many more times now, lol.
Comment: Thank you! Reading is one of my favorite things to do. I often stress out about how to spend my free time...Do I send postcards, work a puzzle, or read? There's just not enough time for leisure!
Comment: Thank you for sending me your answers to these questions, I know I had a blast answering them and reading yours and my other partners.
I loved the pictures you added and I thank you for the nice complement :0) Many of your answers resonate with me and my life.
