Comment: This was 1 of 3 swaps from you that filled my mailbox with joy today! Thanks so much. I especially love the book illustrations. I often wish that books for adults were more so lavishly illustrated.
Comment: Thank you for the card and note. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I haven't had to cook the last couple of years as I have gone to my Granddaughters in-laws for the day. Don't know what I am going to do this year. It is still a little early.
Comment: Great PCs for this swap - thank you so much. And thanks too for the extras. . . the quote of 'life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings' reminds me of my days since I've been retired :-) Thanks again and we'll meet again at the mailbox I'm sure ~~ happy swapping.

Comment: Thank you so much for these postcards, Shelley! I especially love the Dostoevsky one you chose for "Read a Book Day." I will always have a special place in my heart for Russian stuff, and that quote is from a book I've actually read! :-) Thank you so much for sharing!
Comment: Shelley ~ Thanks so much for the great non-touristy PCs - I really like them all but especially the 101 Dalmatians sketch card - I always find them interesting since I'm so familiar with the various Disney movies. Thanks again and happy swapping ~~
Comment: Oh I do like the PCs you sent me for this swap!! I especially like the PC of Peter Pan (of course) but also the PC of the man sketching. The cricket on is very bold and colorful and although I'm not a fan of crickets I do like this one :-) Thanks again and see you again at the mailbox ~~
Comment: I love the movie The Graduate and think iti's interesting that you haven't seen it as it's so old. I'm not big on movies these days but in my youth went to the movies all the time. This particular movie I've seen several times through the years and still enjoy it. Thanks for the great PC for this swap and for bringing back memories of the times I've seen it :-)
Comment: Hello Shelley,
Thank you for the lovely postcard of Jasper that you sent me for this swap. I really would like to go to Canada sometime. I have never been and I would really like to go, Do you have some places you recommend that I go if I go to Canada?
Comment: Hello Shelley,
Thank you for the very fun package of goodies you sent me for this swap. I can very much tell that you read my profile as some of the materials I will be able to use all these materials and look forward to doing so. I appreciate your generosity.
Comment: Hi Shelley, Thanks for the variety of postcards. The dog rolling around reminds me of my two, who do that and I particularly LOVE the lake and mountain scene, Banff National Park in Alberta. Much appreciated, Jenny.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful items in this swap---I loved yout choices! You can be sure that I will be using all of these items in future projects......so interesting to read about your mom's maiden name too! What a small world.
Comment: Shelley, thank you for your postcards that spelled B-U-S. I hope I never have to tangle with one of those big ferocious grizzly bears. Also thank you got the extras postcards. I love Pinocchio! Shirley
Comment: This post card is beautiful, I've started working on my resolutions list for 2018, and I definitely know that I want to go to some state and national parks. This is definitely inspiring. Also, is this a baby mountain goat stamp? Super rad. Thank you so much for the mail! It really made my day.
Comment: I'm so sorry that it took me so long to rate you. I've been working 10-12 hour days/ 7 days a week for the last 6 weeks and things have been crazy!! Thank you for the cool card. I've never heard of your book, but I'm always looking for new books and authors. :-)
Comment: Hi Shelley, thanks for the black bear card. Last week I was in northern Ontario, near Lake Superior, and a youngish black bear just walked right across the Trans-Canada highway in front of me! Best, Al
Comment: Shelley, I love the way you spell! Thank you for the great selection of cards, especially Inge LÃ¶Ã¶kâ€™s dancing ladies, the E.M Forester quote & the beautiful Cavallini flowers. Always a pleasure to see an envie from you in my mailbox.
Comment: Great PC . . .I, too, love anything to do with Disney and have a collection of Peter Pan memorabilia that I started years ago. . . some date back to my childhood. I used to live in Southern California and would go to Disneyland once or twice a year -- happiest place on earth!! Thanks again for the great PC for this swap ~~
Comment: We've had super hot weather here as well, 98 degrees Fahrenheit just two days ago before a brief cold front moves through to bring temps down to 89. I adore the itty bitty stickers you added to the PC, very lovely!
Comment: Hi Shelley! We are getting to be regular pc traders! (which is good for me and I hope you, too ;+) As always, you sent lovely cards. My absolute favorite is the vintage illustration of Winnie the Pooh and friends. I LOVE all those vintage sketches. Thanks so much for another great swap and I'll see you soon at the mailbox!
Comment: Thank you, Shelley. Glad you're enjoying summer. I've been escaping the heat & humidity here in SW Florida with trips to the mountains. Just got back from Colorado to find my own mountain of mail!
Comment: Thanks Shelley for the perfect postcards for me! The color photo of the German Shepherd is almost my Bailey; her eyes were bigger and softer---she was extremely gentle and very watchful over our "grandchildren." Somehow she always knew it was the day Nate was coming, especially his first couple years. She'd be on guard from the dining room window waiting and watching, then coming to me wherever I was to tell me he had arrived.
Thanks very much!
Comment: Thanks so much for the 3 lovely bird PCs. . . I especially like the white ibis flying the swamp. I don't think I've ever actually seen one but they seem to find their way into many books I've read ~
Comment: Thank you, Shelley. Nice selection of cards. I especially like the vintage cowboys and Shirley Temple, A good friend of mine used to live under the "D" in the Hollywood sign, so that card brought back memories of driving to her house in the hills.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Jane Austen postcard :) I love the quote! Thank you for sharing the wuthor you like. I am going to the library today and will definitely look for him :) I just finished The One Man by Andrew Gross. It's one of the best historical fiction books I've read. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks! I did love the Jane Austen PC. I honestly would have been ok with it. I try not to be so anal. I ordered "After The Lie " . Can't wait to read it, Love the Canadian Rockies PC. I stayed in Calgary for about a week , 11 yrs ago & loved it. Lake Louise was awesome!!
Comment: Super cute envie - love the paper! Thanks for the hockey postcard, we attended a game in Toronto in 2004 for our honeymoon, the Toronto fans are so friendly! We had a great time! Thanks for everything, great swap! Good luck to your maple leafs!
Comment: Thanks for the postcards Shelley...I really like the flower card! Unfortunately the bear card has something sticky on the back (it looks like tape residue), which you can see through to the front of the card, making it damaged. The colouring PC was also a little damaged and dirty. The swap description stated 'clean, good condition' cards. This is why I can't give a heart, but the cards themselves are lovely and fit the themes, thank you.
Comment: What a lovely Postcard!! Thank you soooo much Shelley. I am tempted to read that book, when I read the auther's name felt my heart jumping, Ruth was my belated and much loved mom's name... I will take it as a suggestion! Great Swap!
Comment: Love the envelope with the Lisa Frank stickers on it ðŸ˜Š And all of the memo papers were ones I didn't have! What a great selection and neat to add a few new sheets without having to buy a giant stack of the same pieces! Thank-you
Comment: Yeahhhh!! I got this really fast!! Great collection of Postcards Shelley!! Thank so much!! I love them. Very, very unique! Great swap as always!!
PS... Thank you for the ephemera and the great envie material as usually
Comment: Beautiful postcards, all of them but the big winner in my heart is the quote by Henry David Thoreau!! Has been one of my favorite authors ever. Thank you so much â™¥â™¥
Ps... Thank you for decorating the envelope. I recycle everything and this is great material. Loved it!
Comment: Hi Shelley, thank you for the cute cards you chose for me. My favs are the Alberta map and that cutest EVER baby bear in the tree. Your envie was so cute and I love your little owl/moon return address label.
Comment: Although this was mailed late, it was just by a few days, so I'm good with rating a 5. Thanks for the cute Thumper card, and the weather info. I always find weather elsewhere quite fascinating!
Response: Thanks for the rating. However, It was not mailed late. It was mailed on the 28th. The day after partners were assigned. It may have taken a while to get to you though.
Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for these postcards, Shelley! I love the bear and the puppies and the winter scene and the summer (Winnie-the-Pooh!) scene. . . They're great! Thank you so much for sharing them with me! :-)
Comment: What a neat map of Canada! Thank you, Shelley! I love it! And snow?! Wow! Color me envious. We didn't get any snow here in Tucson this past Winter and Spring is already rapidly disappearing in favor of Summer (it is 91Â°F here right now). -ugh- I love cold weather! :-) Thank you for sharing!
Comment: Thanks for a great variety of quality postcards! I love that they are not the typical tourist scenes! Of course Mickey is my favorite and I don't have this one from my favorite Disney pc series yet!
Comment: Shelley, I LUVVV this PC...now one of my all-time favs. Thank you for choosing it for this swap. My mail box was singing in the rain, and you lifted my day! Hugs and hearts, swap friend....jinanne
Comment: I love Banff as well, especially what they did on the highway - double lanes, fencing, and wildlife crossings - made driving through that highway much safer for humans and animals. Also a beautiful place at Christmas ðŸ˜€. Thanks for PC.
Comment: Hi Shelley! We recently encountered one another via mail on PostcardUnited and now here we are doing it on Swap-bot! ;) Thank you so much for the cute Alice in Wonderland postcard--she is a great character! I looked up "Deal Breaker" on Goodreads and it sounds good--I love a good suspense novel!
Comment: Thanks for the Alice card! And argh, it has snowed more times this winter more than all other winters I have been here combined! It usually melts the day after, but Seattle can NOT handle it, lol!
Comment: Oh wow - Thank you for the amazing postcards - I've not seen those before - Love how you paired up your initials with the pc's. Absolutely Loved your home-made envelope - Wow - and - the washi you used on it , is awesome. Thanks for a great swap - Happy day to you.
Comment: Beautiful kitty! I grew up in Michigan so the weather was much more similar to yours, but down here in south Florida, it's in the mid-70s to upper 90s year round anymore...I miss cool nights! Thanks for the smile!
Comment: LOVE this card, and am with you, would love to take the train through Jasper and Banff. We drive through it about every other year when we drive down through Canada to go to the lower states. So beautiful - and it amazes me at the Columbia Ice glacier that those BIG buses drive onto the glaciers! Thanks for the awesome card!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome cards. I also love the scrapbook stickers. My husband and I will be celebrating our 50th anniversary next month and I plan to use them in a scrapbook I will be making for it. Thank you so much!
Comment: Hi Shelley! That card you sent is very easy on the eye. Art work of pastel coloured flowers among some dwellings. A quick search revealed the designer of that pattern is Australian, much to our surprise! Thanks so much. Raoul & Jeanette.
Comment: Thank you for the postcards you chose for me. The Pelican Book Cover & Tenniel's Alice illustration are right up my alley. And looking at that map of Canada made me realize how much more of your country I'd like to see. I've explored the Maritime Provinces, visited Toronto & traveled the Pacific coast provinces but all that vast interior beckons. It must be beautiful where you live.
Comment: Belated thank you for the great Penguin Classics book card, cheery Minnie (it reminds me of the Minnie's Book Club series I looked forward to receiving in elementary school :) and Care Bears (what a blast from the past! I remember the video/cartoon episode in which they explained the invention of the sandwich, wiht Braveheart Lion as the Earl ^_^) stickers and kind New Year's wishes, Shelley! Hope you and your family are also well â™¥
Comment: Love everything you picked out for me. Super excited to have finally received one of the Canada Rainbow stamps!!! Annnd the Zamboni stamp too that you used!!! ðŸ’œðŸ’šðŸ’™â¤ï¸ðŸ’› Also, your fox return address labels are adorable.
Thank you for a lovely swap ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thank you for the Disney Winnie the Pooh card. We had some really cold weather a couple weeks ago but now it is much warmer. Typical for this time of year. We could still have some bad weather as winter is only about half over.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome PC ðŸ˜‹ I think I've read and enjoyed Tiger! Tiger! before but it definitely didn't have the same crazy cover. And I'll have to check out The Girl You Lost. Have a great day, Nathan
Comment: Thank u Shelley for your lovely postcards and messages that you shared with me for the holidays in 2016! Itwssfun reading what did and the postcards WERE GORGEOUS! I can see though u are some distance from the rockies! Three hours drive is a fair distance away! So I want to thank u for the postcards as they are a special treat! Your note was fun to read as well! I hope u can go there many times in this new year. It is wonderful to live in peace! Happy for u!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard Shelley. Edmonton looks beautiful in the fall! Love the stickers - they are very cute. Had a laugh about the stamp though...I'm a Habs fan and my partner follows the Canucks so that is probably the only Toronto Maple Leafs item to ever enter our house, lol. Thank you again ðŸ˜, loved it!
Comment: Apologies for the late rating-I have just returned from our wonderful summer camping holiday to find your swap amongst my mail. Thank you for the wonderful Fbs-I shall pass them along as soon as I can :) Happy New Year!
Comment: Love the card! Cats ARE weird :) But love 'em! :) Oh yeah I don't blame you about staying inside - I don't like being out in the cold, but like winter...so pretty outside - thankgoodness for windows to keep the cold mostly outside :) but we get quite a bit colder here...normally we get down to -60F (-51C) - thankfully not this year :) coldest this year has been about -40F (-40C) Thank you for the cute card! :) and love the Christmas stamp - cute!!!! :)
Comment: Thank you for the peaceful scene of Alice watching the birds -- it reminds me of how I'd look forward to feeding ducks at the park as a child :) I also appreciate the charming owl sticker and polar bear postage! Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday evening, Shelley, and that you have a good upcoming week â™¥
Comment: Never again will I do this swap again just because I don't want you to worry about if I'm your partner or not and the same with me. thank you for the stress and the worry about sending you a message letting you know I didn't receive your swap again. I feel like you don't like to send to me I've never done anything to you in any swap you took one of my favorite swap away from me but it's worth not having to worry about it. . I do wish you all the luck in the new coming year and you have a wonderful Merry Christmas. One last thing no worries about responding
Comment: Thank you Shelley for the beautiful journal I received today! It is like a huge letter! About Thanksgiving traditions, we like to celebrate by going to Whole Foods. Back in Taiwan some people celebrate with a hot pot. The Canada themed buttons were really cute, and they are great additions to my pin collection. One of my favorite parts of the book was the "Eat like a Gilmore" recipe cards. I don't think I've watched the show but I have read about it. I like to watch "Blindspot" "Dr. Ken" "Code Black" and "Fresh Off the Boat" The package was lovely! Thank you so much! This is one of the best swaps I have ever received!
Response: Ohh I'm soo glad you got it and enjoyed everything!! It got there pretty fast!! :)
Have a wonderful day!!
And Happy swapping!!
Comment: Thank you for the Penguin Classic book cover card -- I wish Penguin still issued covers like this, but the Drop-Cap Hardcovers and recent releases are still also spiffy :) -- adorable miniature panda stickers, and for sharing the backstory of your username! Happy almost-weekend <3
Comment: Hi Shelley, I love doing B&W swaps, so we'll probably catch each other again. Not in Week 42 tho, I missed signing up in time. Love your card - I' m not sure what a Ripple Net is.... it looks like a barbed wire fence to me!
See you in the mail, eepy
Response: Glad you liked it.. I've actually had you for a couple of other swaps since so you should be receiving some more from me!! :) Happy swapping!!
Comment: Thank you for the fun Old Sheep shop card -- the image reminds me of both Diagon Alley and the charming shops on Royal Street in New Orleans :) -- cute stickers and stamp, and for sharing the delicious, intriguing Pancakes in Paris! Mmm, I could go for breakfast right about now... well, any time of day, really, haha. Happy reading! <3
Comment: Thanks, Shelley - I love your card... at first I thought it was a barbed wire fence, but then realized it looked just like what my knitting looks like - full of holes!!
See you in the mail! eepy
Comment: Wow, Shelley! I wasn't expecting to get this swap so quickly. Awesome that you actually live so close. You could have driven to drop it off and saved the postage, haha! I hadn't heard of this artist, but I love the song! Thanks for introducing me to a local artist. Cheers! :)
Response: haha I'm glad you got it!! I thought it was funny to get someone so close!! I love that song too!! Have a great day!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Alberta Canada postcard. The scenes are beautiful and love that it has the official flower and a bucking bronco (commonly seen here in Texas...we have similarities!). Have a wonderful day and thanks again for choosing this pc for me.
Comment: I need to come see you. I want to visit both of these places. Maligne Lake is so beautiful and I always love the mountains. We are flat, flat, flat here in our part of Texas. The freeway overpasses are our highest hills in Houston. LOL! Thank you so much!
Comment: Squeeee!!!! you couldn't have chosen a better card for me ðŸ˜Š Jasper is also a quick 3 hour trip away for me too!! And I t's very dear to my heart ðŸ’• My husband proposed to me on Whistlers Mountain â¤ï¸ðŸ’›ðŸ’šðŸ’™ðŸ’œ
Response: aww that's so awesome!!! I'm so glad you liked the card! :)
