Comment: Surfer and a Sunset definitely make me miss the PRE COVID days. I just keep wondering...will this ever end!?! Anyway! Thanks so much for the beautiful card. I can daydream of surf and sand while sitting in the sun on my back porch :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful theme and items! Gardening is very dear to me. I just adore those little ant stickers! The seeds are great. I look forward to planting them and having fresh arugula. Everything is so lovely.
Comment: Oh, that is weird: I didn't rate your resend, which arrived 26/5. Sorry for that.
And guess what: the first one arrived today. Stamped on the 13th. of April.........
Safe and sound, the envelop looked as if you put into the mailbox just yesterday.............
This one will be the first on in the next round. Except when you're on the list yourself!
Comment: Thanks for this cool woman power postcard! Amazing (smh) we have had to fight for the right to control our own bodies for so long, and are still having to fight for that right. Great you'll be heading back to work soon. I bet your family will be pumped to see your face. Michelle
Comment: Renee, I think your 6th try was the charm! I agree, some color combos don't work. If you make another one, try only 3 or 4 colors and larger "globs" ๐ See if that helps any. I painted the envie too! Thanks for the cute stickers! Thank you for perservering and making such a pretty card.
Comment: Thank you for a fun filled envie! The small houses (stickers) are cute but I can't decide to keeping them for myself or sending them to a penpal who's IN LOVE with these kind of houses... Maybe I should draw straws with myself? LOL Take care & safe <3
Comment: Rainbows! What a great theme! I just loved it all. Those rain scented stickers are adorable and sometimes you *do* just need a rainbow unicorn butterfly kitten! Thanks for always sending fun swaps.
Comment: Thanks so much for the cute washi tape and journaling cards. The Affirmators card is so fun and adorable! Glad to hear you're able to keep busy during this time - my husband and I are hangin' in there as we work from home (he's definitely got a case of cabin fever, though ;D). Creative activities like swaps keep me sane and happy :) Thanks again and stay safe!
Comment: I just got this today! I see you mailed it on April 25. I got a card from Florida today too, mailed May 1 . . . the mail certainly is whacky these days. I love the postcard. Mine was similar, although the rainbow adds a wonderful touch. Thank you!
Response: wow! That took really long to get to you! glad you like it
Comment: Hi Renee, I received your letter today! Thank you for the extras. Your "draw your day" was really cute and very good!! The stickers are some serious icing on the cake. Your letter was a pleasure to read. Will be writing back a.s.a.p. Be well! Michelle
Comment: Thank you for the Mt. Fuji postcard and nice message. So beautiful! I'm doing well. Staying safe and trying to be productive. I feel that being retired for over a year has prepared me for the stay-at-home status that we are in. I'm thankful for mail too. Thank you!
Comment: Lovely postcard! The bird is super cute. I like how all the colors harmonize (something I struggle with at times).
(I apologize for the very delayed rating; your postcard just resurfaced from a pile on my kitchen table.)
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely mail! The envelope is adorable and the ATC you included is very gorgeous. I have never seen one before, so thank you for bringing them closer to me. Very creative!
Lots of love, and please take care!
Comment: Thanks for the deep sea postcard Rainydancer. Cool marine life stamps. They look great stamped in white ink against a shimmery deep blue background. I have never heard of distress crayons so I did some searching. Learned something new. Seems like a cross between pastels and watercolours. Thanks for sharing your art with me.
Comment: Thank you so much for the book PC, its so pretty! I have always admired the book from afar....then I bought the first one at a yard but yet to read it!! Now of course I must!! Thank you again.
Comment: I love the postcard that you made me with a quote by Bob Marley! Thank you for sharing your art with me ๐ I enjoyed trying one of your scavenger hunt challenges and appreciate your hosting it. Also for allowing all creative liberties in it - which takes the stress out of making!! ๐
Comment: The first swap got lost and I told her she did not have to go to the trouble of making another one because she has a perfect 5 rating and I had no doubt it got lost in the mail. However, she made me another one anyway. How nice is that!?! Thank you so much. I love the dangle you added to it. I appreciate the resend very much๐๐๐๐๐
Response: I'm so glad this one got to you! I'm still hoping the other one shows up! Happy that you liked it!
Comment: well, how lovely! Just the used postage would have been amazing, but all the pink extras made it even better! LOVE LOVE it all, thank you so much!
editing because its all UNUSED! omgosshhhhh even COOLER.
Response: Glad you liked it! Haha yes i should mention it in the note when I send unused postage so people realize!
Comment: Hey Renee, thank you for all the goodies! I absolutely love the stickers, I can't wait to use them. :) The ATC looks awesome, the star glitters make it appear sparkly. I will be on the lookout for the next Out of this world swap, thank you for hosting! :)
Comment: What a beautiful book theme postcard! I LOVE reading and hoard books! Someday I hope my husband will build me shelves in my den. ANd i will go to the library and ask for that book you recommended, thank you very much!
Comment: Thank you for your very nice letter.
I think your stationary is lovely. What constitutes "girly" anyway. When I return your letter (It may take me a while) you will see how non-masculine my stationary is.
Comment: Thanks for the purple SPARKLY card! Glad you had fun making it!
My favorite NOLA place is the cemeteries! Lots of cool tours for everything: Voodoo, ghosts, French Quarter, Mardi Gras World... And food-wise, this place is the best! https://www.sweetvegansoulfood.com/ Enjoy your trip!
Comment: Thank you for your postcard! My birthday was in the beginning of December and the fact that Iโm still being carded because I look 22 at age 34 probably means that the start of the month has been pretty good haha.
Seasons greetings :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the supplies you sent. Two of the items you sent Iโm glad you sent because I have them already and now I donโt have to replace them when the run out of ink...white Pitt artist pen & copic drawing pen. I canโt wait to try the pigment stick and the Aqua ink. That should be a fun color to use. I have the perfect swap to use it for. I appreciate the paint brush, drawing pencil, and sketch pen. The pouch is the winner to store all my new fun tools in. Have a great Christmas,
Response: I'm so glad you liked the supplies and pouch! thanks for a great swap!
Comment: Thank you for the postcards and journal cards. I enjoy everything that youโve shared with me, especially this adorable postcard of a baby bear standing on itโs motherโs back! Totally makes me ๐ Thanks for making my day!
Comment: Love the envie! I missed the deadline to sign up for swap 69, but I'll get it sent out next round. I hate it when that happens, but it's been a busy time.
Just noticed the stamp--where did you find a ghost one? I LOVE it! Thanks!
Response: I get most of my stamps online now to get the designs I like!
Comment: Thank you Renee for your swap!! So sorry it took so long, like I explained in the message, I received your envelope cut open from the PO Inspection Services. They explained that this happens to other also and are conducting investigations on this kind of mail rifling. Sorry my rating is taking so long!!
Comment: Hi Renee. I knew I recognized the name on the envelope! I've got several other Women of Science cards - they're beginning to form a collection! And the Alice in Wonderland concept art card is SO cool! Thank you!
Comment: Yay! I absolutely love that Boston terrier and beagle stamp. The others were really pretty, I hope you have a wonderful day and Iโm so glad youโre enjoying the swaps! Micaela โบ๏ธโค๏ธ๐ฎ
Comment: Thank you so much for the horse postcard!! I also really loved the stamps. Although Iโm not sure youโre supposed to mail that official mail USA one cent stamp, I heard from somewhere thereโs a fine of $300 for using it! But not sure if thatโs true or not but it does say on the stamp! Thanks again ๐โบ๏ธ
Comment: I enjoyed looking at all your cool stickers. The greenhouse sticker is so cute. Love all the planets. All the teeny iridescent little stars must have been a challenge to put on! With my big meat hooks I always end up wrecking those teeny ones. I hope you are getting the cooler weather that you hoped for! I had a very nice summer, yes. thank you for the fun swap!
Comment: Ty for the stamped images. Unfortunately the envie had gotten wet ( & dried) at some time before it arrived and the images were ruined. No way blaming you just thought you would like to know ๐.*edited 8-30* Renee tysvm for the resend and the envie was hilarious the rain did stay away and everything was perfect loved them all especially the happy mail amd sloth stamp!
Response: Oh no!! Thanks for letting me know, I'll send out another envelope to you with some that you can use! I'm so sorry that happened :-(
Comment: What a pretty picture you drew/painted on the post card. I shall try to do it justice when I add to the post card and forward it along its way. The pig decorated envelop was great and made me smile so thank you for that special "extra".
Comment: Nifty cards, thank you Renee! There is a well known amusement park in Denver that's been around for over 100 years-founded by the Elitch family--close on the spelling, but I guess you're not related?
Comment: Thank you! Your sticker slapped card looks really nice. It makes me think of the butterfly gardens. My summer is pretty much over. We're starting school tomorrow. I'm glad it's over, though. I'm not a summer person.
Comment: Hi Renee, Great job picking the books/reading theme! I was excited to see this listed and enjoyed putting mine together. Thank you for your PL๐ It is so cute, love it! I like the book washi, stickers, and the ATCs you made. Thanks also for all the fun goodies you included!
Comment: Holy Christmas! Merry Christmas in July to me! Thank you for such a nice swap! I really like everything. LOVE the scratch n sniff stickers! And the penguin stickers!! My fave! Thank you so very much! ๐๐ง
Comment: Hi Renee! Thank you for the pretty summery pc! Summer is going by quickly and like you, the heat has been awful - at least last week! This week it is pretty nice, fingers crossed that continues! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Renee! Thank you for the great postcard that you created! The cat photo looks an awful lot like one of our kitties so that was fun to get! Love the star and the paint technique you used. Thank you! :)
Comment: Hello Renee. I was just going through and archiving old swaps, and I saw that my rating didn't post on this one for you-- I'm so sorry! It must not have saved correctly. The swap was received right away and it is absolutely lovely. It will be passed on this month in HD/HP round 65. Thanks again for the beautiful rose. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for this gorgeous and colorful happy mail. I love how each color is so bright and defined, I can see that you've put a lot of thought and effort into the swap and I appreciate it. Thank you for the extra rainbow washi + stickers, they're perfect!
Comment: OMG I love your mermaid! I love mermaids and have several of them about my bedroom (wall hangings, figurines, drawings, etc.) which is decorated in a beach cottage theme. I hope you like my contribution when you receive your card back.
Comment: Thank you for the Harry Potter pc. Not my fav movie, but I still collect all the promos for all the movies. I hope they remake the movies in my lifetime, but not for many, many, many years. It will be amazing to see the effects with the way technology advances and how someone else interprets the stories.
Comment: Thank you so much Renee for all the wonderful blue goodies!!! I especially love the blue velum envelope!!!! thank you for being in the swap - hope you will join the next one too. take care, darla
Comment: Hi Renee,
Thank you for the WONDERFUL collection of papers and images! So much fun to go through an fussy cut my favorite pieces, even found a few words and phrases that rock! Have a GREAT summer!
Comment: I received your shiny gold envelope in the mail. I just loved it. And then I opened it up.....Purple isn't my favorite color but it is growing on me. I just love what you did. You even personalize it. So Sweet....Thanks so much.
Response: Iโm so glad you liked it! Thanks for your kind words, rating, and heart ๐
Comment: Love the gold foiled whale notecard! I've been looking forward to GOT too! Just saw the first two episodes of the last season this week, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next few episodes!! :) Have a great week!
Comment: Thank you kindly for the package you sent me. What is a state quarter? Is it valid currency or is just something for collecting? (I like it, whatever it is.)
Response: It is valid currency here, worth a quarter or 25 cents. They just printed up some special quarters featuring the 50 states awhile back. I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Super fun words. I read book 1, and do think I came across that word Verdigris, as the definitions seem familiar. Meaning I had to look up the word.
Response: There are so many old words in those books and I don't usually read historical fiction, so I never really encounter them. I do now want a signet to wear on my finger to stamp my mail with to make it all official. lol
Comment: I LOVED THIS PACKAGE! this was perfect! I literally squealed when I got to the tokidoki unicorno decal as I collect tokidoki AND decals! I put all the cool new unicorn decals on my special decal wall in my room (Iโm such a hardcore collector I donโt even put them on a car). The ATC was BEAUTIFUL. Iโve never been able to pull off a mermaid that well! It was just perfect. I hope you will join my Disney princess swap when we reach Ariel. I already have so much planned for everything you sent, thank you so much!
Response: Oh I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for joining
Comment: Waiting to read on a break at work!! Thanks so much! Can't wait to read it! Your weekend sounds like fun! I did aerial yoga and got some decluttering done amd read as well! ๐ P.S. I loved the raccoon sticker!!
Comment: Thank you Renee, I feel spoiled, so many nice goodie. Just as I thought, getting a fresh bit of supplies gets the brain thinking again. Using up the map pages and tags already! Thanks again
Expect a little surprise in a few days!
Response: so glad you like everything! thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Renee...
I think you are the first Boston Swapper I have come across. I miss home so much!! Thank you for sending the colorful woodpecker coloring PC! I love him! He's even in red and purple... red hat colors :-)
THANK YOU! <3 <3 <3
Comment: Hi! Thank you for the lovely stamp and card. You handwriting is really neat. I drink both coffee and tea actually. I do love a cup of hot coffee in the morning and a cold brew in the afternoon just like you, but we r so different because I add so much milk in my coffee lol. I am a baby when it comes to the bitterness of coffee. On the other hand I drink tea a lot during anytime of the day. Anyways I loved receiving your envelope and hope you have a great night :)
Comment: I adore your pocket letter!! The blue is so pretty with the black and white. I really like the two cards you painted. Love the jelly fish! Thanks for the fun goodies too! Thank you for joining my swap! <3
Response: i'm glad you liked it! I really enjoyed your swap, thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Hi Renรฉe! Thank you so much for the lovely postcard, it's absolutely gorgeous! (Where did you get it?) Also, the stamps you used are lovely! I love science-fiction and YA as well, they're definitely some of my favourite genres along with fantasy! Oh my gosh, that's an incredible quote! Thank you so much for sharing everything with me! I hope you have a magnificent weekend ^_^
Response: Thanks for your kind words! I hope your weekend was good

Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for rating.
Comment: Thank you!
So much different papers and images, I especially love the painted (?) background with shimmery teal and lilac colour, images on book paper and of course the pretty postage stamp stickers <3 . Very useful all, thank you!
Response: glad you liked it, thanks for rating and the heart!
Comment: You did a great job...its a keeper in my wall of art from swap-bot. Thank-you. Long weekends are the best! Happy to read you got to enjoy it. I put the Umbrella Academy on my to watch list. Keep safe during the next days with the high winds. We have them now and really scary sounds and vibrations in the house (lol).
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! The wind was definitely shaking my place today, it's scary.
Comment: I just opened this and I love everything. I wanted to rate you super quick so you could start joining more swaps, so I will come back with my comments after I go through it again. :) Seriously though, the stickers were amazeballs.
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! Thanks for rating me
Comment: Itโs like I recโd a swap from myself! Well not exactly because our lists would be a bit different:) I love the washi on the envelope (I use Kraft envelopes a lot), the card will definitely be planted, the sticker is great! Your lists are so fun to read... love the restaurant list! We do very similar art though Iโm not a stained glass person or pottery person (yet!). Thank you so very much ๐๐ป
Response: Oh I'm glad you liked it! Thanks so much for rating me!
