Comment: Loved reading your profile & your letter & your creative stationary/envelope - wish were a creative recycler! Thank you for creating this swap, & for the lighthouse pc & playing card, pointing out where you live on the cards' map. Can't wait to hear from you again!
Comment: Thank you for the letter, washi and postcard. I will definitely use both. I send a lot of postcards (on and off swap bot).
I have only had one swap that really reeked. I think the ways you mentioned are the ways I have tried to rid things of smell (especially thrifted things). The only other way I have heard of (that doesn't involve it being washed) is to put it in a container with baking soda. I haven't tried it though.
Comment: Hi, Your envelope is the happiest I've ever seen !! with washi tape on it and stickers inside, the two things you rarely use, thank you. I love all the extras, especially the PC of Grand Haven, aerial view with the important spots labeled, ships fascinate me. I've been going through a long dry spell with my mailbox being empty day after day, now, I have two beautiful, fun, long letters from you ! ! ! Keep up the good swaps.
Comment: Thanks a lot for your email with the picture of your dogs! :) I'm sorry for my delayed rating - my left hand started to hurt very badly, therefore I tried to avoid using computer. Now I came up, as today is the last day of this swap, and I don't want to be late. I'll reply back to your email for sure when my hand gets better! :)
Comment: Thank you for your letter about your Oliver. My Toby is a quirky little dog too. I'm sure he remembers how much it hurt when he lost his leg so he won't let us trim his nails (or brush his teeth). He has a warning sign on his vet record since he's so feisty. He is not a fan of other dogs so I'm forbidden from adding any fur siblings. I volunteer at our local shelter walking dogs so I get to love on other rescues then.
Comment: I was responding to your letter when the swap letter came, how fun :) And what a coincidence, I was drawing you a map of our condo when I opened your map - great. I'm not familiar with a barberry but if it brings cardinals, orioles and gold finches for breakfast I like 'em. Thank you for the tiny envelopes and washi and the acorn is very appropriate as we're having a terrible problem with squirrels right now.
Comment: Thank you so very much for another beautiful letter. I just didn’t have the time yet to answer you but it is still on my list. Be a little bit patient with me, and this crazy times I need a little longer to reply. But I will, promise!
Response: I'd much rather it take longer for a good letter like yours vs. having letters right away that are short or non-conversational! No worries at all!!
Comment: I really enjoyed your letter and the Peanuts envelope holding sweet surprises gave me a huge smile, thank you. I've only had one e-mail pal and it was very nice to type a long chat and not have to wait on a snail mail reply.
Comment: hard to believe i impress someone from my somewhat outdated profile (it challenges me put stuff out about myself)! thanks for your honest
observations; easier for me to savor other member profiles, but in this case i had to have mine examined! your stationery was inspirational
& cards presented views of interest!
> just read your profile: thank you for sponsoring this swap - shall write you back!
Comment: Thank you so much for the notecards! That was so creative and I'm presently wishing that I would have done the same for my partner. But ideas for next time I guess. I loved your handwriting and how creative you were with this swap - adding stickers and washi to make each card unique and fun. And I enjoyed the verses you selected as well. Thank you (:
Comment: Thank you sooo much for sharing your verses an the reason you like those with me.I love the way you were creative an wrote those on the cards.That is something I did'nt even think about doing.Also love your pretty rose pic an I think your brush lettering is great.Thank you for hosting the swap!!Decorated envie was very nice too!!
Comment: OMG! Thanks for the letter and I love your creative way of sharing the Bible verses you picked out. So Creative! The stationary you wrote on was nice. As soon as I can I will respond to your letter.
Response: I am hosting a Handwritten Bible Verses swap in case you're interested! I loved writing them out like that! :)
Comment: Tracy, thank you for the awesome letter. Right now I'm working on getting my swaps done that the deadlines are before our swap is but I promise, I'll have it sent by the deadline if not before, for sure. Thank you also for the extras you included! (Hugs)
Comment: I just don't even have words, cuz anything I would type in here I will instead write in my reply. I totally feel a penpal connection and oh, I do appreciate how green you made everything! Why can't I give you more hearts?
Comment: I understand the elation, anticipation and excitement of receiving mail, just to quickly have your excitement dashed as you realize it's more junk mail. Excessive talking doesn't bother me at all, matter of fact, I believe that's me :)
Comment: what a awesome letter I will be writing you back when I get a minute. What a cute state envie, I will be mailing it to my next partner in my letter swap. Oh the doggy envie I have to stick this in my 2018 journal it's just to adorable.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter! We have a lot in common. Mine is the age of our kids, mine are 6 and seven, we have a lot of the same interest in 80s music and influenced by the 80s. Thanks for the letter!
Comment: Thank you for the letter and sharing. I really loved the watercolor of the ornaments! Keep up the good work. I will be writing you back soon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome goodies! I love the postcards and I LOVE the little vintage pics with the quotes!! I haven't seen anything like that before and I will definitely use those! Thanks again :)
Response: I'm so glad you found something you could use! I read your profile and was just about sweating bullets! ;-)
