Comment: Aaaaah an Edward Gorey card! Aaaaah! Going on my door right away :)
Oh yes and there are stamps... so many lovely stamps! Thank you so much <3
(Sorry it took so long to rate - I've been away, but this has been one of my favourite pieces of mail to come back to so far!)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely selection of postcards. The stamps are much appreciated. Thanks for the kind words. I am getting better but have never stopped missing them! Be good to yours ok! Take care and thanks again!
Comment: My mailbox was happy with *four* swapbot offerings for me. I chose to open yours first because so awesome it was (do you speak Yoda/apparently, I do) , with stamps and washi bits. And now, I've decided to wait to open the others tomorrow (or maybe this evening, I'm weak-willed) because your postcard set for me is so perfectly funny and awesome, nothing can top it! Thank you! very! much! -Rhonda
Comment: Wow ! What a brilliant selection of cards. You really made my day. Wonderful selection. I love them all and also the great envie and stamps. Great your boyfriend is from Sicily. This isle is still on my Italian holiday wish list. Well the language of love is more important for you than knowing Italian ;-) And I'm sure he will help you if you want to learn more Italian. Happy swapping !
Comment: Thanks so much for all ten postcards! You rock! I totally LOVE the poodle,and all the profile related postcards, thank you!!!! Of course your envelopes, stamps and packaging are always gorgeous! Your address labels are so cute too! Thanks so much for joining!!!! xxxx
Response: You're so welcome!!!
I just got the address labels - my partner and I bought a house, so I finally felt justified in stocking up on nice labels!!!
Comment: Hi Rosei - Thanks for a beautifully decorated envie (as always), and fun PCs. I almost couldn't stop laughing at the 'sales-oriented' dude in order to rate you for this swap. Still laughing, in fact. Thanks for joining and I hope you're having a great June. (P.S. Fab return address label! Drool...)
Response: Ahaha, isn't that card fantastic?? I got a few of those from a museum gift shop (my favorite places to shop, always), and I'm obsessed with them.
Comment: Thanks! There was 9 stamps in here that was damaged, mostly missing corners, please be more careful in the future! My cats could make their own bad cat calendar ;P Old grumps makes for photo material! They have quite the following on Google+, many more than my own posts!
Response: Aww, I'm sorry about that! I try to include lots of extras just in case. Have been moving so my brain is a little wonky. ;)
That's very funny about your popular kitties, haha.
Comment: Hi Rosei Thanks so much for the parcel for this swap. It was nice to receive things from my profile. I love receiving stationery and I really liked the kitten postcard. It is apparent that you looked at my profile and selected for me. I hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Response: Oh I'm so glad the stuff I sent matched your likes!! I do my best. It gives me a lovely excuse to buy waaaaay too many supplies for my crafting and mail supplies ;)
Comment: beautiful card. Love the extras. My granddaughter loves the horse postcard. I was in Rochester many years ago with my sister. They helped her to walk again. I love how you decorated the envie and the inside..wow. thanks for the compliment. :)
Comment: Hello Rosei!
Would you believe it, the postcard you sent me in June arrived today! It is much torn from its travels, but I love it more for that. Thank you very much, for choosing Chagall, and for the gorgeous stamps you used. This made me very very happy.
Response: That's so amazing that it travelled for so long (if only it could tell us where it has been!), I'm so glad you liked it <3
Comment: The postcards you sent for this swap are absolutely, wonderfully perfect! It was a delight to find them waiting for me in the mailbox today. Thank you! And... where in the world did you find all those great postage stamps! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Oh I'm so glad you liked them!
And the answer is... Ebay... My bank account is very sad to say... ;)
Comment: Thank you very much Rosei, for the beautiful postcard. I love it. And all the stamps, every one of them suits in my poststampcollection. You're aa excellent swapper. Thank you again and I hope we'll "meet"again here.
Response: Oh thank you so much for the wonderful rating, I hope we do!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful bird card, with the cool whale tape & the amazing collection of stamps! Of all of those stamps, I can only remember having seen one before! I am happy to hear you like my photos, thanks for the compliment! :)
Comment: I am so sorry for rating this so late. I have been taking a long break from swapbot because I was preparing for my wedding. It was over now and I am back on swap bot. Thank you for your swap. :)
Response: You are so welcome, and congrats, that is wonderful!!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely tea package. I love it !! Can't wait to try the tea and thanks for the awesome stickers !! We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Holland unfortunately :( But I did !! :D Heart !
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful stickers. I know I will be able to use them for my craft projects. My daughter also loved them so I will share them with her. Halloween is becoming more popular in Australia now. I decorate my house and take my kids trick or treating.
Comment: For some reason, I just received this swap today (it looks like you sent on time, so who knows why it took 10 days to get here) but wow, what a wonderful set of postcards!!! I honestly love each of them! A (new to me!) map, trains, NYC, a Viking alphabet, a Paul Bunyan statue (!!!), and all of the others. Thanks so much, and I would give many hearts if I could!! (And how fun that you wrapped them so nicely, it felt like an early Christmas when I unwrapped the package! :>)
Comment: My gosh, I'd give you lots of hearts just for the fun envelope and stamps!!! Thanks so so much for all the scavenger hunt postcards plus the note cards!!! And a Snoopy card!!!! XOXO I am so grateful, Rosei, thank you very much!!!!!!
Response: You're so very welcome, glad that you liked it!!!
Comment: Rosei ~~ Thanks for the wonderful PCs. You really outdid yourself this time!!! I loved the Minnesota State Bird PC that you used as a notecard. . . I remember those when we used to visit my relatives in Minnesota when I was young - they loved me!!! Thanks again for the great PCs. . . and happy swapping ~~
Response: Yes they are awful, giant mosquito chompers! But a funny card :)
Comment: Oooooh I wish I could give you twenty hearts! Certainly the best package I have received in a LONG time! I was excited from the stamps (particular the Potter & Cash ones) before I even cracked open the envelope to the wonders within! Feeling very spoilt today and it's my birthday tomorrow so timing is rather wonderful! Thank you so much! I LOVE every single item you sent, I'm in feline heaven <3
Response: Yay, sounds like perfect timing, happy birthday a few weeks ago!!!
Comment: I got home today from a week camping and found the most amazing envie full of fun stuff. From the many stamps both in and out to the cute notecards and the wonderful postcards.....it was an extra special swap for me. Thank you so much, Rosei!
Response: Wonderful! I love a happy mailbox when coming home from a trip =)
Comment: As always, you have sent me fantastic PCs!! The PC of the forest is just beautiful and the 'Chance Encounter at 3 AM' painting is fascinating. . .and I always enjoy seeing book and magazine cover PCs. Thanks again for the great PCs for this swap ~~
Response: You're so welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed!
Comment: Rosei ~ As always, great PCs - thank you so much! I especially liked the miniature rail scene from the Colorado Railroad Museum - I love miniature rooms or scenes like this one. I really enjoyed all the different stamps you used too --- very cool! Thanks again. . .and hope to 'see' you again at the mailbox in the future ~~
Response: You're very welcome! I agree about miniature scenes, I want to find more like that!
Comment: WOW! Thank you VERY much. The handmade and decorated envelope is a treasure in itself. Awesome paper you used to wrapt the postcards in. The variety and amount of postcards overwhelming. The little Oregon sticker is so cool. I lived in Oregon for many years but grew up in Texas. I still have family in Oregon. I would like to give you more hearts. The envelope made me grin from ear to ear. Thank you for taking the time to that. Have a wonderful day and I hope you get partners as creative as you are.
Response: Oh I'm so happy that you liked everything!!! I'm visiting Eugene next week, I can't wait...
Comment: My husband liked this card, too -- he was born and raised in Salem. We are hoping to visit the Oregon coast sometimg this summer -- can't wait. And thanks for the nice note, too. Happy swapping
Response: Oh it's so beautiful in the summer, would be a great time to visit!
Comment: My heart started to race when I saw your awesome envelope, lol!!!! Fun stamps - Snoopy included!!! Then inside it just got better!! : ) Thank you for all the wonderful and totally "me" postcards!! The fawns are new to me. I cannot believe how many exist!!! The poodle page is too cute. I had no idea MN was the home of Spam!! Ha ha!!! Thanks for joining - it was nice to see you!!!
Response: Yay, so glad that you liked them all!!! The city is embarrassed about the spam thing, but I think they should embrace it!!! :D
Comment: What a wonderful selection of PCs - thank you so much! I wish I could pick a favorite but they are all so good that I can't choose one :-) And thanks for all the stamps on the envie -- they will go to a veterans organization that uses stamps for therapy. Thanks again for the wonderful PCs . . . and the stamps!
Response: You're so very welcome, and I am curious about the veterans organization... What do they do with them??
Comment: Howdy! Received your cards today and LOVE them all! What a wonderful selection . . . from cats to whales! Thank you so very much for reading my profile and sending cards you knew I would love. And the slug (the "almost" snail) is cute--they're both gastropods!
Response: Yay, so glad that you enjoyed them, even the slug!!! :D
Comment: I loved everything about this swap. Sadly usa post tore the Elvis and one HP stamp (I don't have any of them in my collection) but it was still wonderful to receive. I liked the envelope so much I am going to keep it for my mail art journal. The extras were really thoughtful to, Thank you so much.
Response: Thank you for the wonderfully sweet rating, I'm so glad you enjoyed everything!!!
If you send me a message to remind me I'll send you another something with an Elvis stamp... And what is the HP one? :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the incredible photos you sent for this swap and for all of the postcards that you included. Your thoughtfulness and cheer helped to make the holidays merry and bright. I hope that 2014 is the best year ever for you!
Response: Thank so much for your sweet comments, I'm so very glad that you liked everything!!!
Comment: My best mail day of the week! What a great way to start my vacation. Your envelope is mail art in itself, but the stamps are terrific. Great to see all the vintage postage. You're so generous, too. I loved everything you sent, from the fighter plane playing card to the Malta stamps, to the awesome entrance ticket from the Palermo Cathedral. I'd give you ten hearts if I could! Have a wonderful holiday season and a great 2014.
Response: Yay, I'm so super happy that you liked it!!! I had a great time picking through my little boxes of things to find things to send. <3 The ticket and stamps had just been brought back from Europe, I have a great boyfriend! (And he is happy that I collect paper instead of jewelry, haha)
Comment: <3<3<3 WOW, This has to be the best swap I have been sent. Your handwriting is so neat, I'm jealous! The postcards are fabulous. I squealed when I saw the cat envelope. I will use the fabric for my Japanese quilt! So much love for this. The stickers included are the cutest thing xxx
Thank you so much!!! I hope you have a great 2014! <3<3<3
Response: Yay!!! I'm so happy it arrived safe and sound and that you liked everything!!!
As for the handwriting, I swear it's all about getting the right pen.... =D
Happy New Year to you as well!
Comment: Wow! I so enjoy getting your colorful envelopes full of surprises. What a great gift! I love the Christmas sacks--where do you find them? Thanks again. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family! Hope to do more swaps with you after the holidays.
Response: The little sacks are made by cavallini, I adore them! Bought on amazon, they have many themes.
There are more goodies on the way... ;)
Comment: Rosei!!! Thank you for the beautiful card and all the goodies. It was a wonderful surprise!! :-) I wish I can give you two hearts!! May you and your loved ones have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year filled with good health and blessings! :-)
Comment: Thank you. I wish for snow too, but we don't usually get any until January or February, then it gets really cold and sometimes ices over causing everything to close down. Good for you and your studies, it is a nice thing to have nice people around when you're in the hospital. I wish you all the luck in your studies and your job. Merry Christmas!
Comment: What a delightful envelope you sent! Decorated mail art, stickers, post cards, Christmas card to send- a great variety of goodies to enjoy! Thank you so much for sending! Merry Christmas to you too! .
Comment: Thanks! This card was chock full of good stuff! - stickers & postcards! Loved the pics! Thanks for sharing those and adding a note about them! Glad you got to go to Italy - one of the countries I sure would like to see again! Thanks so much!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked everything Charlotte! I'm so happy to say that I'll be going back for Christmas, yay!
Stay warm... We finally got some snow here in Rochester.
Comment: Love this aurora borealis MN postcard that you sent. I have been lucky to have seen the northern lights from Michigan. Have yet to visit MN (but we have changed planes there a few times). It is on our list... have been to Oregon...loved it there (in the summer). Loved the postage stamps and ALL the stickers you used to decorate your card. Thanks so much!
Response: Thanks for the great rating, that's so amazing that you've seen the northern lights! I think I'd have to head north to have a chance... And bring a very, very warm coat. =D
Comment: Even though it was sent late, I am still giving a 5 and a heart! You went above and beyond with the stickers, tea, and postcards! I can tell you really read my profile and picked out stuff I would like. Thanks so much!!!
Response: =D Thanks for the five and the heart, I'm really glad that you liked everything!! Stay warm, we are finally getting some snow down in RST...
Comment: Oh my goodness! Did this swap ever make my day! What a beautiful, thoughtful little package! Everything is just my style. I am always amazed at all the fun little bits we have to share. I love the Vogue postcard, and the way you used the bingo card! Your stamping and little handwriting is so sweet! Love it! Thanks and extra hearts to you! = ) â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡â™¥â™¡
Response: Yay, so happy that you enjoyed everything, and thank you for the sweet rating! How did you do those hearts?!?!
Comment: Thank you! I was so happy just getting this swap out of the mailbox. I love the kitty cat envie. It's awesome! The postcards are awesome too. And I love the stickers. I have had a hard week and the stickers with the happy sayings were what I needed! Thank you so much for making me smile.
Response: I'm so glad when a good piece of mail arrives with just the perfect timing, I hope this week is better <3
Comment: I love the stickers and the way you wrapped everything up. You gave me the most unique assortment of stickers I've ever received! :) Tip though, don't tape over stamps because this was marked to be returned for that reason but made it's way to me anyway. Anyway, great swap! Thank you! :)
Response: Glad you liked everything!
Oh picky postal service! I have recently bought some new glue to try with stamps, as I find that they often don't stay "stuck" on certain papers... The trials of a snailmailer ;)
Comment: Rosei, thank you so much for this beautiful swap. Your selection of postcard is simply amazing and the extra goodies are great as well. Totally my style. :) Hope to see you again on the swap. ;)
Response: Wow, that arrived quickly, awesome! I'm so glad that you liked everything - it's always fun to get a swap partner with similar tastes to mine =D
Comment: Thanks for the neat postcard. Funny you should send the state fair, I've actually worked at 2 of them, in Washington. That's a beautiful postcard you sent, and I love the stickers and stamps, thank you :)
Comment: Thank you for this absolutely great choice of postcards. I love them. Most of all the water shaking dog, but all the others too. And so many. By the way one of my aunts name is Rosie, short for Rosemarie.
Response: Oh I'm so glad that you liked them all, and the cute dog! (Though I suppose it is less cute when you are standing next to the dog).
It's not a very common name here but I like it. =)
Comment: Wow! What a fun bunch of posties for me! Love them ALL and I love your envie and am just thrilled with your elephant envie of extra goodies. A lot of thought and effort went into this and I appreciate it very much. Thanks bunches!
Response: So glad that you liked the swap, I had so much fun finding the elephant stuff, etcetera!
Comment: I went ape when I got your envie -I ADORE how you decorated it and the vintage postage put a huge smile on my face :D Thank you SO much for all the goodies inside (so generous ). Hope you're enjoying the beginnings of Fall! Take Care
Response: Oh I'm so happy you liked it, my mom had just given me those rubber stamps and I definitely put them to good use, hehe***
Comment: Wow! Your package blew me away! I think you managed to hit almost ALL of my likes on my profile! Old postage stamps, rodents, cool papers, teas, crows.... just WOW! Thank you so very much! You've made my day! :o) You're just awesome!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked the swap so much, yay!!! Love when I can find something random that a person likes, like rodents :D Thanks for the heart <3
Comment: Hello! Thank you very much for your card :D I'm totally in love with it and the stamps <3 I wish I could give you more than one heart~ And I love your handwriting, too! It's so tiny and tidy :) I have big handwriting, so I'm green with envy :P Once again, thank you! I hope you have a fantastic week ;)
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it!! I swear that the handwritng is all about having the right pen :D
Comment: Thanks for the card--what would we do with those odd ones if it wasn't for a swap like this. I have several that were given to me that are so offensive I hesitate to send them even in an "offensive postcard swap." Got a new foster cat today--a ten year old named Holly.
Response: I'm glad you weren't too horrified by it, hehe.
I hope the new kitty is doing well! How long do you usually have each foster cat? My kittens were fostered and I think that's why they are so great!
Comment: I don't think I've ever received such a beautifully assembled and presented swap. It was artistic and tailored for me. Such a celebration of not just your post office but mail in general. Congrats on your new little kitties! I had to put my Max to sleep last week, so it was super sweet to read your words about him on my profile. Thanks for sharing and for the wonderful swap!
Response: Kate, I'm so glad that it arrived and that you liked it! I had so much fun putting it together <3
So sorry to hear about Max, I can tell from your profile that he was very well loved.
Comment: WOW! A big big heart for you, gorgeous stickers and al those stamps, great card and little extra! Beautiful handwriting!!! Love swapping to, it bring a smile on your face to receive real mail! Your dids :-) :-) :-) Thank you so much and a great day!
Response: Oh I'm so glad it was a happy mail day! I love sending swaps all over the world =D
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard and the kind note. I like the flowers too. :) I was out today and saw a great shelf, but my husband wouldn't stop. I may need to start thinking about trading him in. :)
Comment: I love the "Claire de Loon" postcard (so Minnesota!), and the stamps and stickers are SO cute - thanks a bunch! ;o) It's nasty up here too, and I can't believe all those people are still going to the fair - they need their heads examined! I'm also looking forward to cold weather! ;o)
Comment: My postcard just showed up today. It was postmarked long ago, so not sure where it has been. Anyway, I love all the stamps and the kitty stickers. I've not tried corrugated cardboard before. It did get caught on one corner going through the machine, but just a tiny bit of paper torn from the stamp. What part of Oregon are you from?
Response: I'm glad it (eventually) made it okay! I new quite know what the post office thinks of my funny mail.
I'm from Eugene! I miss Oregon summers.
Comment: I almost thought this one wasnt going to make it to me(I think the p.o. sent it on a detour) but all that lovely green was well worth the wait. Green package, green stamps and yummy cannoli shells! Thanks!
Response: Yes, I'm so glad it found you! I had fun looking for everything green =D
Comment: My guess is that you can speak 4 languages!
Response: Oh I wish! I majored in Spanish but my skills these days... eh.
The truth is that I only have 23 ribs! I had to have one removed last year because I got something called thoracic outlet syndrome. Nuts!
Comment: Hi Rosei,
I love love love love love.... your Postcards with all the pretty stamps... I wish I can give you many many hearts... ahhhhh.. My hubby and I are having fun looking though the stamps.. Thank you for brightening up my day.. *Hugz*
Response: Oh I'm so glad that you enjoyed it!!! They were some of my very favorite stamps (especially the rainbow) so I was really hoping you would like them as much as me! <3
Comment: WoW! Rosei.....Love the Brids and more birds and your stamps. So, nice to see all the work and imput with your art. Thank you so. love love love it.
Your deserve 10 hearts. I will write you
Watch your mail for more birds
Response: Oh I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! I like international swaps bc I can put more stamps on them =D
Comment: Thanks for the nice critters! Also, I totally love the badger stamp!!! This is one of my fav animals. :) Nope, I've never been to the USA. And if you're interested: my name is of Greek origin and means "peace". :)
Response: You are welcome, thank you for the heart! That is a lovely meaning for a lovely name.
Comment: Thank you for the memior PC. Received it today. I see post dated May 2nd... was on a scenic path to my mailbox, aye? =D
Response: That's nuts!! Even weirder, my other partner lives in the same state as you, and it literally arrived a month prior... Would be interesting to know where that PC has been on its way to your house!
Comment: Rosei! This is definitely one of my favorite cards that I've received so far! I love this set of cards and you gave me dinosaur stamps.. and stickers.. and banana airplanes... jeez.. could it get any better!!?? Oh my gosh there's a ghost sticker too! YAY! You win all the awards!
Response: Oh yay, I'm glad you saw the banana airplane, so weird! =) <3
Comment: Thank you very much for the variety of stickers. I love them all :)
And thank you for your kind note. I hope you will have a great time when you visit The Netherlands. You know my address, you can visit me;) Your country is one of my favorite, I visit it 2 times and I wish I could go again.
Response: Oh I hope you will get to visit again! Minnesota is not the top choice for tourists, but if you happen to be in town... =) I'm glad that you like the stickers!
Comment: Thank you for the interesting PC. Since I have been swapping Fat Quarters I am coming to appreciate the designs on quilt fabric and how the different pieces a put together to make beautiful quilts which I have never done.
Response: I adore quilts, but I don't think I'd ever have the patience to make one! So I collect little bits of fabric just to dream about ;)
Comment: Thank you! I love the abstractness of the actual postcard, I'm not sure what kind of product the cardboard came from. Thank you for all the beautiful stamps and doodles too I love it!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it! The cardboard is from the shipping for this thing my friend convinced me to sign up for, called Birchbox. $110 later, I get little boxes of makeup samples and things in the mail each month. Delightful, but this is why I never talk to my friend when I'm in a shopping mood ;)
Comment: MANY HEARTS FOR YOU Rosie...:) I love all the stamps and will surely go to my 1st ever smash book. And the letter set was so beautiful i love the flowers... if you are going to write me again i hope you will use the same stationery! :) Would it be okay to write you back?... i would love to! :) :) :) Thanks again fr a very thoughtful swap! HAPPY MAIL DAY!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it Marge!!! I could use the same stationary but then I wouldn't get to use some other pretty stationary! :) And you would be more than welcome to! I am slow but I always will reply!
Comment: Thank you for the cards! They are indeed awful hahaha... but two of them have a design that I think will be popular on a forum with an ''I offer'' album tag, so I will save at least those two :D I loved all the extras you sent me and the envelope was beautiful, so here's a heart!
Response: II'm so glad that you liked the extras, thanks for the heart! I'm curious, what is an "I offer" forum?
Comment: I love this series, I bought them myself a while back but swapped them all out because I prefer them written. I'm so happy to have one for my collection, they make me laugh every time I look at them :)
Comment: Rosei, thanks so much for the wonderful envie. The stamps are great and I like all those pretty extra papers. Can't buy them here so that makes them more special.

Response: Oh I'm so glad that you liked it!! The best thing is getting something that you can't buy where you live. =)
Comment: Thanks for the PC of your hospital. Woodstock built a new hospital that has been open for a 1 1/2 years. I live across the street from the old one and they are tearing it down now. Every morning I awake to crashing bricks & stuff. Thanks also for the extra stamps - can always use them in craft projects.
Response: You are welcome, thank you for the heart! Hopefully the construction (destruction?) does not last too long!
Comment: What a GREAT selection of art postcards you sent my way - thank you! (Who knew that even Ikea had/has some cute postcards!) You did such a beautiful job of packaging everything, too :) I think you might be my role model for future postcard swaps :)
Response: Aww, thank you so much, I'm really glad that you liked everything!
Comment: Thank you, flower fairies are my favorite, my current wall calendar has those and I doubly love receiving the PURPLE one! I also appreciate the decorated back. And I did just start watching Call the Midwife, only first episode so far! Love it. No, not from WA, we moved here in 2009 from Colorado for hubby's job. We live in the desert dry SE corner, no pretty trees or green here! LOL We are actually planning to move back to CO very soon.
Response: IAhh, I forgot that WA has a dry part, haha! Pretty different than the rainy areas. I love Colorado, it's so pretty with the mountains. Good luck!
Comment: I love everything you sent! You have a neat collection of things, including the stickers and such! And I started listening to the podcast Smart People and I'm hooked! They have some awesome guests on that podcast! Thanks for everything, you're awesome! (Â´âˆ€`)â™¥
Response: Oh yay, I'm so glad!!! My other favorites are This American Life and Snap Judgement. Sometimes I clean just so I can listen to them while I'm doing something productive :D
Comment: Hello again! I may not be the Crow partner, but I really like this postcard :P
Jumbo (the elephant my city murdered) was part of an act in the Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1885. They were set up in the middle of town and he wondered on to the tracks as a train was coming. He didn't move fast enough. So now we have a big statue of him on the West side of town. I actually live really only a couple blocks away from him. He like our mascot. Whenever someone comes to visit I always take them to Jumbo.
Response: Oh my gosh, that's terrible! Poor elephant. Is it an elephant-sized statue? Because that would be awesome.
Comment: Hello Rosei!:D your package arrived safely to me yesterday :D thank you for everything and peppermint tea for my husband :D seems so much snow there!!I hope spring start very soon. But, Indonesia is a tropical country. We just have two season, rainy and dry season. It just like summer all year long even its rainy. The sun shine everyday :) Your job looks great!My major is psychology and I love kids :D
Response: I'm very glad that it got there safely and I hope your husband likes the tea!
You must own a lot of umbrellas... =)
Comment: Thanks for the all-around great card! Great stamps! I have seen the first episode of Call the Midwife, but I was also knitting a complicated pattern, so I need to go back and watch again haha.
Response: Haha, the same thing happened to me because I was working on swaps, so I can't quite figure out what's going on now in the second episode... I'm glad that you liked the card and the stamps!
Comment: I just sent you a postcard in another swap...
I liked your letter. I studied Criminal Psychology and now that I have a child of my own I kick myself all of the time for not studying Child Psychology.
The only person who calls me Mandy is my ex husband. We're still friends so I see him quarterly. He always liked that name... Usually people would call me Nandin if anything. That's what one of my Developmentally Disabled clients called me.
Thanks for the great letter. It's been a long time since I have gotten a "real" letter!
Response: I'm so glad that you liked the letter! I like to write something for all of mine. Nandin is a really cute nickname! I have billions of things I would still like to study... Wish I could be a student forever.
Comment: Rosei, what a beautiful, breathtaking package you sent me! I am so incredibly happy with it! I loved the writing paper and what you wrote, I adore the cards, am intrigued by the teas (chocolicious sounds so delicious), am in love with the cute envelope (It already made me happy when I peeked into the mailbox ;)) and I am amazed by your kindness for sending me the stamps. It cheered up my day and I will let it on the table, so it will cheer up the week ;).
Response: Oh I'm so glad that it made it safe and sound all the way to the Netherlands! I had so much fun making it, the envelope was made from a book of children's stories, and I took a picture of it so I could remember it! <3
Comment: Thank you for the lovely presents! And for going to so much effort to find things! I can't wait to open them, lol I'm resisting because today's not really a bad day! But maybe I should treat myself?!
Response: I know, it's so hard to decide when to open them! I hope you like them!
Comment: That was a nice diverse collection of postcards. Thanks so much. I love the music envelope and all the different stamps. Where did you get that 8 cent mission Historic Preservation stamp from? It's gorgeous!!!
Response: I got it as part of an ebay lot I think! I'd never seen it before, I'm glad that you liked everything!
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful package. Loved reading your letter - your handwriting is so neat. Sorry to hear about Murphy, I hope you get to have another cat one day! I don't have problems with my 8, they live together but fight often! But they protect their territory from other cats!! Thanks again for the stamps and the extra postcards. Take care!
Response: You are welcome! I bet they must eat a ton! Do they all eat the same food? I can't even imagine so many kitties, do they all try to sit in your lap? So much fun. =)
Comment: Rosei!! I absolutely loved everything that you had sent me. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Thank you for putting time and thought into this, it really made my night. Thank you so much. It's users like you who make me appreciate the love for swap-bot. Sadly I feel sometimes I have to get 20 crappy swaps to get 1 amazing one. Yours was the amazing one :)
Response: YAY!!! I had such a good time putting everything together for you, although I had to stop myself from buying an entire antique shop. ;) I'm so super glad you liked everything. I need to get you as a partner again because I just found something for you...
Comment: Lol! What a cute kitty! Thats funny about only having the 1 PC. I go to Half Price Bookstore to pick up my postcards. Thank you so much & I, unlike you, am enjoying the "cold" Houston weather! It'll be in the mid 70's today. Happy spring!
Response: Oh my gosh, I lived in the South for six years and I still remember relishing those "cold" days!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cards and the nice stamps you sent me. I really love them :] I am sooo happy to receive such a wonderful letter, that was so sweet of you. IÂ´d give you ten more hearts if I could! Hugs from Lithuania.
Response: I'm so glad that you liked everything and that it arrived safely! You're very welcome. =)
Comment: Rosei! Was so delighted to see your tiny, immaculate, lovely handwriting in my mailbox again today! Sorry you got me again; that must be sort of boring, but I certainly was glad! :) The postcard is great - especially the porcupine! Love the washi tape and the unique stamps, too. Such a cute and tiny peacock stamp, too! Thanks again, very much! :D
Response: Never boring! Isn't it the best peacock sticker ever?
Comment: Loved EVERYTHING about this package. It was custom made for me, which is crazy, given the category. Love, love, loved the Lincoln postcard. And all of the deer stuff. And Vonnegut/books. So great. Thank you so much.
Response: You're so welcome wishes! I was so excited to find someone truly appreciative to give my Lincoln postcard to, haha. Glad you liked it as much as I hoped. =)
Comment: Oh no! What a dilemma. I can't decide which side of the card I like better! Thanks so much for choosing such an interesting card - my first depicted Guatemala. And thanks too for the lovely deco!
Response: You're welcome, I had a ton of fun decorating it!
Comment: I haven't been to Minnesota but I have been to Belgium. Spent a day in Brugges. The beer was great but I really wasn't that impressed with the chocolate.Didn't try a Begium waffle as I can make my own. Thanks for the great card!
Response: Hmm, if the chocolate wasn't that great then I'm not sure I'm really that motivated to go! Haha. =)
Comment: holy cow! thanx for all the goodies! I especially love the envelope made from a magazine page-CLEVER!!! I love all the stamps too, I only had one of them and you can never have too many stamps can you:) i appreciate your efforts, blessings, ellie
p.s. I used to live in Duluth, MN back in the early 80s my dad was stationed at Duluth IAP, I do not miss the winters there:)
Response: I'm so glad that you liked them! I need to get more cards from postcrossing so I can build up my international stash again ;)
This winter is lasting FOREVER.
Comment: Yayyyyy, got your beautiful and thoughtful PC today - thank you so much! Totally made my day. I was dancing around in the kitchen a little! It was so nice of you to put all those awesome vintage stamps on it as well! You're not totally alone in MN, awwwww. Thank you again :-)
Response: Thank you very much for the kind message, I'm so glad that you liked the postcard <3
Comment: Thank you so much for all the papers :) I loved all of them, especially that Coffee Napkin! CUTE
Response: Haha, I'm so glad that you liked it because I was actually just thinking today "maybe I shouldn't have put the little napkins in, is she going to think they are weird??". Very happy that you enjoyed. =)
Comment: I loved the overall presentation of the letter. I loved the fawn stamp, the Bambi stationary you used, and all of the stickers are so adorable. Thank you so much for the Oregon sticker, I love it! Your hand writing is perfect. I wish I could give you a million hearts. (:
Response: You are so very welcome! I think that might be my most favorite stamp ever <3.
Comment: I love love love the postcard!!! And the cow and cat stickers! I bet Minnesota was a big change from Oregon!
Response: So glad you liked the PC! It has been quite a change from Oregon, but not nearly so much so the place I lived before - Alabama! I'm not sure if you could pick a place more unlike my hippy hometown. :)
Comment: Welcome to the world of swapping! :) I LOVED the card you sent so much, and also the dog stamps, sticker, and washi tape. You have gorgeous, neat, small handwriting that I am very jealous of. :D Hope to swap with you again sometime.
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it! And you may get your wish granted soon... ;)
Comment: Wow! It's like you've been following me around looking over my shoulder for awhile! I absolutely love everything you sent, from the card with my favorite Emily Dickinson quote, the great stickers and postcards, to the very interesting article! I couldn't have chosen better for myself! Thank you and a million hearts!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! That is one of my favorite quotes as well. <3
Comment: I'll be honest, I haven't gotten your PC yet, but I got the stamps. Oh my gosh, I got the stamps! So I had to heart you immediately! Thank you so much! Update: Got your PC! I'm new to Swap-Bot, too, so hooray for mail! :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! I scavenged around my piles of mail to chop off some nice ones. =)
