Comment: Laura, a very BIG THANK YOU :-) Already your envelope made my day when I saw all the pink little butterflies and your note :-) Yes, I have seen several butterflies this spring and my camera is ready! Laura, I enjoy reading about your exciting day! I laughed when reading about your brother and about you taking shots of yourself cleaning your teeth... I was happy for you that you caught the flight... and I liked your description of the journey illustrated by all the tickets :-) Are you a writer? You can write a novel and I will read it with pleasure :-) Laura, all the best for you and your boy-friend!... Well, it is not all... You also chose beautiful batman stamps and an impressive postcard! Thank you!
Response: Aw you made my day! Thanks for the encouragement :D xxx
Response: The lack of comment makes me worried you didn't like what I made you. I'm really sorry :/ I did put a lot of time and care into your mail though. If you're unhappy and would like a resend, please private mail me.
Comment: Aww. Such cute bunnies! I love the ones in the hands. They are all cute though. Thanks for the Happy Hoppy bunny fun.
Oh and yes... Lupus really sucks. And Dr. House is annoying with his whole "it must be Lupus" diagnosis. When I watch that show I want to throw things. LOL
Comment: Absolutely adorable! Thanks you â™¥ Im more accustomed to the slightly bitter taste of dark chocolate, so milk and white are way too sweet to me and actually make me feel sick if I eat more than a tiny bit of it.
Comment: Hi Laura, guess what? your swap arrived a couple of days ago, can you believe it!!! Mail in Mexico is really something else,I am now receiving Christmas cards. Don't know when you mailed it because the stamps weren't canceled, but I am thrilled to receive your lovely cards, thank you so much. Barbara
Response: Omg no way!! That's crazy! Happy Christmas I guess lol. :D
Comment: THANX so much for being a part of this cute swap!!! âœ¿â™¥â€¿â™¥âœ¿ The tiny baby bunnies are so precious!!!! ! too cute!!! HEARTS TO YA!!!!!
â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥ Blessings!!! cc
Comment: I love this pc of Ireland! Thank you very much and for the nice note you wrote. And, no, your handwriting is NOT bad, it's great! Thanks for putting the return address on it too and the official stamp for the occasion <3<3
Comment: Thank you for my map card. I enjoyed reading your message. Most doctors haven't heard of Aicardi Syndrome because it is so rare. There are a couple girls in Ireland that have it. That is great that you googled it to find out more.
Comment: OMG - just the fact that my letter came from Ireland grants you the 5, but Minnie Mouse will get a heart every time! I TOTALLY agree with putting the mouse first! Oscar and I went to Disney about half a dozen times last year, so I completely understand priorities! Thanks so much!!! <3
Comment: Thank you so much for a fabulous swap!! I love the decorated envelope!! and all the lovely gifts you sent. Thank you for reading my profile and putting so much effort into this swap! Have a great week :)
Comment: Oh Laura Thank you for the nice Christmas card and Eiffel Tower notecard too! I wish I was drinking mulled wine in Ireland right now, but I'm still living in the hotel *sigh*; oh well, I have my kitties to keep me warm and loved! I hope you talk your boyfriend into taking that trip - it's my favourite city in the world! Merry Christmas and I hope 2015 brings you wonderful things!
Comment: Laura, you made my day! I love the big blue envelope with all the shining stamps, I love the funny Christmas card and I do love the Cicely Mary Barker's postcards! And the little green clovers made me smile! THANK YOU! Merry Christmas! :-)
Comment: Wow, what a cool card, stickers, and map you made! And so very personal, too. I feel like I could understand a lot about you even though we're total strangers. Thank you so much for the time you spent on that, and happy holidays!!
Comment: Hello, my friend !
I received your nice candies.
They are looks like very yummy !!
I really look forward to try them.
I love the lovely and spicy envelope and wrapping too !
Thanks ã‚ã‚ŠãŒã¨ã† arigato.
Comment: What a pretty envie!!! I love so much how you decorated it. Also I'm thrilled to receive a postcard from Dublin :D and all the Irish stamps :):):) I sent your card out a while ago. It should be there soon! <3 oh and I included a note about Texas ( how funny the coincidence!).
Comment: I'm sorry I do not understand your ransom. You have a phrase instead of a ransom and it's so busy you have a hard time seeing your letters. Where was the photograph or picture? The packing tape over the whole thing was all bunched up but I can tell you really tried. so I rather not give you a bad rating.
Comment: heart for the card & for the tea. the card is gorgeous! really unique, love how shiny it is and the illustration of the tree is really beautiful on the front. and. GASP. my favourite tea ever - bigelow peach :O hugs, thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the fun penguin card and extras! I enjoyed your note. And Veda is an awesome name. I love cats, even though they make my eyes swell and itch. Give Veda extra ear scratches from me. :)
Comment: Receiving your card was a pleasure! Thank you for making a beautiful envelope, handmade card, and sharing a sticker sheet and memo sheets with me! Your attention to my preferences is much appreciated and it was very lovely reading through the list of things that you are thankful for!
Comment: Hello Laura! Delighted to receive your postcard from Ireland with the wonderful Eire postage stamps! Wow, you are moving to Austin, Texas from Dublin, Ireland! That's a "fur piece" across the "pond!" Good luck for your safe move in January. After you have settled in, some time do internet search of weird Florida. Still feels like summer here though it is cooler at night.
Comment: hi laura! I got your swap yesterday but didn't have a chance to rate you. Thanks for the stickers!! I love them all especially the hello kittty ones! and I love the way you decorate your envelope! I am soooo keeping that!
Comment: Hi Laura,
Wouw, your swap is amazing! It started with the envelope. It made smile and I didn t want to open it because it was so nice. I will look for the book from Tara French. Thanks again for the beautiful cards! And take your time for changing your career path!
Comment: Yeah!!!! I received the second postcard today!!! It's a very lovely card, I love it! And the stamps are beautiful! Thank you so much to sent me twice, you're so sweet! I wonder where the first one went...
Response: Yay!! Glad you like it! Its weird how post doesnt make it. A lady in Belarus had to resend to me last week because it never made it to me! I love the swaps with fill a postcard because yay stamps!!! X
Comment: I guess your pc got lost in the mail - bummer, but that happens sometimes. take care, darla
Response: Hey! The other person I sent this swap to didn't get it either!! Thanks for rating but I'll send you it again because its not fair otherwise. It seems to be a problem from my end if both never made it. Ill write a new one after work for you! Let me know if it makes it OK :) xxxx
Comment: Update: the postcard arrived yesterday. Thank you for sending it. I gave you the first rating before you replied to my message, you were not online for some time. Maybe I should have waited a bit longer...
Sorry to rate you a one but I did not get my card & you did not answer to my message too. I can rerate a 3 should i get my card.
Comment: Hi Laura, thank you very much for the beautiful envelope you made and all the goodies you put into it.
I love everything and it was worth waiting, so apologies accepted :-)
The envelope is beautiful, very creative and the stickers are awesome; never seen something like that.
Cards, teas, stamps, all are very well chosen. Thanks again and I wish you all the best. Take good care of yourself!
Comment: Hello laura! I just received your amazing Ireland postcard today! Your note was lovely and the stamps you used are beautiful! Thank you! And it was well worth the wait! Best wishes to you and your boyfriend! Your cat too!
Comment: Thank you!! I love this swap so much & I cannot wait to finish my jar! I am going to put it at the nurses station in the chemo lab where I go every friday for my infusions :) I love the idea of knowing that when chemo patients come in for their infusions that they can grab a little slip of encouragement, hope and even a giggle or two!
THANK YOU for contributing to my jar!
Comment: Thanks for the cool envelope you made, Laura, and for the little surprises inside.
I always enjoy reading little letters too, so thanks for popping in a note with a little bit about yourself and where you live!
Response: Ah glad you appreciated it. I always am disappointed if I just get the swap name and no other info. I'm super curious lol x
Comment: Oh my goodness, what a wonderful little package! You sent so many great things! I just loved how you labeled each item and gave an explanation of each. And the way you packaged the swap was adorable - love the stickers and stamps and cute hippo tape. My favorite things were the Ireland and London items because I have visited both places and have been longing to go back! I was in Ireland two years ago and it was just so beautiful. Thanks again for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! actually really enjoyed getting one from dublin/ireland as ive never recieved one! haha :) had a look at your instagram there and adore they way you decorate your envelopes! Have a lovely day! xxx Inez
Response: That's so funny that the first person I've met on here from ireland, is the person I have to send a Dublin PC to haha. thanks for saying my envelopes are nice :)
Comment: I got the package you re-sent today... I'm at the hospital and my mother brought it just now..Oh I simply LOVE everything in it, I feel so miserable that I didn't get the original first one...But nevertheless, this is one AWESOME package and I Love it... I will PM you tomorrow... :)
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You so much, and I do hope to swap with you again...
Comment: Fabulous postcard!!! I loved it! Thanks so much for sending something so awesomely old :) it's PERFECT! And it's super rad that you included a fun fact about Finland, my sister is moving there in a few months and I can't wait to tell her that Donald Duck was banned in Finland!!!
Comment: I loved your card! Even the bunnies! Well, what was left of them. I know what you mean, I used to get my postcards prepared well before the date to send. But now, not so much. I'm really glad though, that you told me that Dublin is in Ireland... who would have thought? lol
Yeah, I've changed my status about not liking animals, it now reads, I don't like pets!
Thanks for the cool card anyway!
Comment: What a pleasure it was to see your colorful letter in my mailbox after a long drive from work! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your thoughtful responses to the swap questions. I have no recent stamps from Ireland, so thanks to you I now have several. Also, many thanks for the collection of ephemera you sent. I like the thought that these small pieces of paper made up bits of your day and now are a part of mine.
Comment: I LOVE it! Ha ha, I knew I recognized that big pink envie :D Thanks ever so much for all the airmail/postal awesomeness and for being such a thoughtful swapper (+all the goodies)! Take Care & Happy Swapping -â™¥â™¥â™¥ :D
Comment: Thank you so much for both of the postcards you sent! They are both gorgeous-- so beautiful and lush! Your story about Veda "helping" with the card made me laugh! That's awesome! :) Thanks and happy swapping!
Comment: Hey Laura! :D Thanks ever so much for such a sweet & thoughtful swap (& so generous!) -â™¥'d it all! Ha ha, especially the pc you wrote (beautiful!) Thank You, Thank You -Take Care & Happy Swapping :D
Response: So glad you're happy :) happy February :) x
Comment: Thanks so much for these beautiful PC and your wonderful note. You should come to Alaska and see it for yourself! I would like to visit the "Giant's Causeway" by you one year. I love the daffodil paper you used for the envie too! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Wow it got to you! I'm so glad. For some reason i was scared it wouldn't make it. Alaska seems so so far from Ireland !!! Have a great day :)
Comment: Hi Laura! Thanks for your beautiful Irish scenic view and the cheerfully decorated reverse side! So much washi!! Also loved your long message. Give Veda a pet for me! See you in the mail sometime soon again I hope! <3
Comment: Hi Laura! Thank you for the postcard! The quotes are amazing!!!! I am a literature teacher and those quotes are perfect for me :)
â€œHe liked the mere act of reading, the magic of turning scratches on a page into words inside his head.â€ by John Green
â€œThat is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.â€ by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! I have a great memory of my family visiting Hershey Park in Pennsylvania close to where Hersey's chocolate is made. My sister and I ate chocolate until we couldn't eat any more!
Response: Oh wow that's like a childhood dream of mine!!! Just like in willy wonka! :)
Comment: Haha what a funny postcard! As much as I love starbucks I don't think I've ever had their gingerbread coffee. I'll have to try it next season. I loved the Disney tape and the black cat sticker as well. Thank you for the great conversation and swap Laura! Hope we can swap again some day!
Response: hehe! Well I plan on joining future swaps for the bizarre postcards so we might get each other again :)
Comment: I love your honesty! You write, by the way, exactly like my friend in Belfast! Is it an Irish thing?? ;-)
Response: haha really!?!??! that's so funny. I have no idea. Because Belfast is so separate to the rest of Ireland. You know the way they are in Northern Ireland and we are the Republic of Ireland. Although I have a penal fro Belfast and now that you say it I think she spoke quite like me in her letter hehe x
Comment: Thank you for my opportunity to take part of your day! The envelope you had made was just lovely. :) Want to have a embosser myself!
Response: Ah I'm glad you liked it. It was such a fun swap wasn't it. I'll join again if it's run again. It was interesting hearing from my partner. She did loads like going to space museum. It was fun like even having the receipt from her lunch. so cool. take care xxx
Comment: Thanks! All my pets give a big hello to Veda! They actually have new snow to play in the backyard just this morning.
Response: Veda thanks your pets for the attention and hello lol. She's lying on top of the clothes airer- you know the things with the bars? it's so uncomfortable I don't know whaaaat she's doing there ha
Comment: Wow! Such a wonderful piece of mail! From the deco tape decorated envie and beautiful notes all over the cover to the GORGEOUS handmade card inside and the embossed papers and cut-outs! This was by far my most favorite birthday greeting I've received. Thank you so much! I'd give you 5 stars if I could! Thank you, Laura!
Response: Awwww thank you for a lovely comment! Glad you like it! :) x
Comment: Thanks for the card! Just came back from the animal shelter--it's been below zero for a week and another to come. One of the shelters in a nearby city lost their heat--lots of cold cats and dogs.My two current favorites Panther and Rupert haven't been adopted yet. But Catrina was going home today. Yay!
Response: Oh gosh those poor animals. It's horrible thinking of them in the cold. I suppose all we can do is focus our thoughts on the nice warm ones in the world! Else we'd cry all night :S
Comment: Thanks for the nice postcard and about the very long and awesome message on its back xD. So much information! I should learn how to fit so much on a postcard too, haha. Thanks a lot :). Happy new year!
Comment: Hello Laura, thank you very much for the nice card. I liked the stamps and decoration of the card :) Yes, I know that Inside I'm Dancing is an Irish movie. I'm interested in Irish culture and history. I hope someday to visit Ireland and see Dublin :)
Comment: Laura! Thank you for your beautiful postcard! I was very interested to learn about the Giant's Causeway. And thanks for the cute stamps
This is my first postcard received from Ireland! Late last week, my husband and I went to an Irish dance show "Rhythm of the Dance" :)
Comment: Thanks for the cute card. We've not had snow here yet, but I love it. My partner's mum lives in Co. Meath. She's just got back from there after her dad died. I've only been to Dublin, Drogheda , co. Meath n Cork :)
Comment: I so enjoyed your postcard! No worries about it being sent through the post -- it has so much character! I have visited Ireland - I have friends in Omagh, Co. Tyrone and I have to say the Irish are like no other people! :-) (My mother's maiden name is Murphy!) Thanks for a fun swap.xx kerrydwynn
Comment: Wow, thank you very much for the beautiful card! Th scenery is gorgeous of course, and the sheep are just sooooo cute!!! Are they wearing ribbons??!! There are several Irish- style pubs in Philadelphia, and I often go to one of those places. I would LOVE to go to a pub in Ireland for real, and drink authentic Guinness (or any of the local beer) while watching a rugby or football match!
Comment: Thanks a lot for a very nice package!
I loved it all!
You found me a Twining tea that I haven't seen before!
The Christmas cards were adorable, and the things for making cards or ATC's were perfect for me!!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
really a Christmas present one month ahead :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful map card of Ireland. I simply love it. There wqere no map cards like that when I was last in Ireland 7 years ago. I have been to Wexford where you are at now. On one my Irish lines came to Canada in 1825. They were from Cootehill, County Cavan.
Comment: thank you for the wonder pc. i love all the tape and stickers you put on it. the indigo with butterflies is smashing. thank you also for the wonderful floral stamps is is really interesting to compare them to our floral ones. oh yeah. i love the map of ireland. it is now my favorite map. the dancers and the cows are my favorites.
Response: aw you're welcome! glad you like it :))))
