Comment: Hello - thanks for the items although I think you shorted one piece of stationary. Also , I do not know how you store your postcards but the two I got had damaged corners and were marked up on the front...they were not in new condition.
Comment: So far so good on getting ready for Christmas. Almost all the packages are wrapped, tree is up and we went minimal on outside decorations but it still is pretty :) Thank you for the pretty PC.
Comment: Hi Linda and thank you so, so much for resending pc's for this swap. I love your choices for me (I'm crazy for the animal and bird cards) and am touched that you wanted to resend after the post office lost the original cards. Please forgive my late rating; I've been so sick and haven't felt like tackling rating 'til now. Hope to swap together again soon!
Comment: Im not sure I can really use the gaffa tape, I cant get it off the playing card. Its not washi tape - doh! I can see though that you super tried with this swap, i realised too when I sorted through my stash how difficult this swap was to find things to stuff in an envie for my partner. Thank you so much for sending me this swap.
Comment: Thank you for the package! I havent opened it yet, might save it for a rainy day!!! But you mentioned teas and I thank you for that! I am beginning to make quite a collection for winter nights with a book!! Thank you so much for the swap, I know I will love it!!
Comment: Thanks Linda, the postcard was great! Here in Ontario, summer had a last hurrah this past weekend, but today Fall officially starts. Hopefully the warmer weather still sticks around for a while. 🙂
Comment: Thanks so much for the note cards! Both are really cute! I wish I could be super organized but I know it’ll never happen - I have WAY too much stuff. Maybe I need a bigger house ha ha!! Thanks again!
Comment: I'm so sorry to take so long to rate you. Oddly, it is the perfect verse and after today it's the perfect time. Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. There's lots of uncertainty as well. :)
Comment: Linda...it is always good to hear from you and get an update on your growing (too quickly) family!! A senior in the household...how fun! So many life decisions to be made in a few short months...best of luck. Hope he is enjoying his new job! I love the washi sample you sent...Thank you and stay WARM....we got a foot of new snow and had -35*F windchill for the past couple of days...SPRING can not come too SOON!!!...Charlene
Comment: Linda, what a great swap! I love everything you sent (and how you labeled each one:). That keyring is just so fun - no way I will have to hunt very hard for my keys with that one! I only hope that your partner treats you as well as you treated me! Thank you -
Comment: Wow beautiful notecards! Thank you so much. The one with the mother and child I will have to keep in my journal. I also buy notecards all the time that I don't use so these swaps are great. Can't wait to try the teas thanks for sending decaf.
Comment: I love love love this PC!!! Thank you!! I have a new recent obsession with wolves because of our ancestry and being tied to Ossory Ireland. Our family, the Fitzpatrick Clan, is said to have been shifters in ancient Celtic times and when they shifted they became werewolves! Also, Zazzle PCS are from www.zazzle.com 😍😍😍
Comment: Thank you so much! I love this PC! We just visited 2 old jails this Summer - the best one I have EVER seen was the Ohio State Penetentiary -- place where Shawshank Redemption was filmed! AMAZING OLD place!!
Comment: I love your username! I also love your postcard, adn am not willing to tell you how long it took me to figure out what I was looking at. Haha! It is beautiful. Despite our distance, we have been having similar weather. I love snow, but look most forward to fall. Thanks so much!
Comment: Thank you soooo much for this lovely postcard. I love These type of houses, they giving me a creep! Love that and it ill get a Special place in my Journal! Thank you so much! Would give you five hearts but one is the limit :D
Hope to get a Revenge soon :)
Comment: Thanks Linda. What's really super cool bout this pc is when it went thru the machine at post office it got knicked and looks like there's something on the mountain. Super super cool. Thank you. Love it have a good day
Comment: I went to Disney World once for a day in the 80's... and once was enough for me. I preferred places like Six Flags for rides and such, and love roller coasters, but can't ride them anymore due to a cervical fusion! So now I just go for the shows! Thank you!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE glass and have made several small stained glass windows. Love the one on this PC, reminds me of Tiffany. I get to PA periodically and will have to try to plan a trip to Corning while I'm there! Thank you!
Comment: Linda....Thank you for the beautiful "Thoughtful" recycled postcard....it was good to hear from you again! Enjoy the remainder of summer with your kiddos and hopefully winter will not be in a rush! Hugs across the miles friend, Charlene
Comment: Thank you for the note cards. The Pen/Pencil wasn't in the package. It look like it had been ripped and retaped. No worries. I don't know what they are doing these days at the post offices. Because a lot of mail is getting messed up and not delivered.
Comment: Linda...Thank you for my beautiful "Happy Mail"...full of LOVE (hearts) and flowers!! Cute note cards and the pen will be easy to find as well as bring a smile with all the bright SPRING flowers on it :) It is always nice to be partnered with you...hope you are staying warm!! Happy Valentine's Day...Charlene
Comment: Hi, Linda! I received my slips of happiness today, and they are safely tucked in my jar. I didn't want to be tempted to read them as I folded them, so I took my glasses off, lol! I can't read anything without them :)
Comment: Thank You for your Pretty Flowered Spring Card and for the Nice Note inside..! ! ! Would be nice to get outside to walk - my shadow is getting more noticeable ! ! ! Need to loose about 25 lbs by the July Wedding of my son.. I Wish...
Comment: Hi, That was a very cute postcard. Let me see... I know at age 4 I sewed a Strawberry Shortcake doll. It was one of those printed ones that were popular in the 80's. So I would say that is my first "remembered" craft. I would LOVE to be able to sew more complicated items now, But alas my talents are limited to buttons and the occasional unstitched hem.
Response: :) I'm not good at sewing. I tried making a shirt in high school (didn't turn out right.) A couple towns over a lady is teaching how to sew with your machine. Perhaps the next classes she has (if my husband's car is fixed by then) I will sign up for. That is if I can find the power cord.
Comment: Thank you for the "Winter in the Country/Getting/Ice" postcard. My parents had several Currier & Ives' prints hanging on the walls of our home when I was growing up. They've always been a favorite of mine. Thank you and Happy Holidays! â„â„â„
Comment: Thanks for the great PC and definition! I made about 25 butterflies for "The Butterfly Project" for the Houston Holocaust museum. It tool them many years to collect 1.5 million butterflies, one for each child murdered. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Linda...What a fun swap!! I wish I could give you more hearts for creativity...I have never seen anything like it and to think you saved all those items from the landfill to make something so beautiful...it is displayed on my fridge and I will need to be thinking spring when the winter hits here in NY state!! Bonus points for the clever reuse of packaging and label backing note from the address label :) THANKS...you made my day :) Charlene
Comment: Thank you for the very interesting touristy card! The place looks really beautiful. Also thank you for the artsy postcard as well! I absolutely loved it. I hope we would be able to swap again sometimes ;).
Comment: Fabulous PCs!!! I love them all, but especially the Belle Star one and Kinzua Bridge one - had never heard of either so was very interesting to learn something new! Thanks again for the wonderful PCs and have a great week ~~
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much Linda for knowing that I love elephants AND angels! lol..you are right..the elephat..sooo cute!!! LOVED them both..especially the elephant!! It looks great in my collection.. I have nothing like it!! Thanks again!! OH..also.. LOVED that you used "real "stamps" on your box!!".. I LOVED that!! I collect them and they came off perfect!! Soo awesome!!! My post office only go up to $.66 cent stamps!! did you order yours?? Love them!!! You Rock!!
Response: You're welcome :) I like the look of the real stamps. I also like collecting stamps. I'm glad you enjoy the items :)
Comment: Love the postcard! It's hot and humid here in SC. It's been raining since around July 2-3rd. Good thing is I've never seen the grass and everything so green in the summer here! Guess a month of rain does that.
Comment: Thank you for the adorable "Kisses From the Kids" PC. I used to dream of having my own goats... hubby even offered to buy them for me but I changed my mind... my own kids take up enough of my time & energy right now :) Plus I have a friend with goats that I can visit, so that works for me. Thanks for joining my swap.
Comment: Thanks for the New York card. Did you know that Me and Bobby McGee was written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster and was sung by many including Kris Kristofferson. When the song topped the singles chart sung by Janis Joplin, she was already dead.
Response: You're welcome. I didn't know that. Interesting. :)
Comment: Thank-you so much! The plant pot holder (which is what I believe it is) is just so sweet! I love it! My husband "enjoyed" accepting the box you sent it in from the mail lady while I was at work, btw! :D Wish I could send you lots of hearts!
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the heart and the lovely thought :)
Comment: Thank you for the SeaWorld postcard! : ) I know, we had a few May freezes too but thankfully no snow! My birthday was last weekend and the first time I had to wear a down jacket on it!!! So crazy!! It was nice reading your note, thank you!!!!
Comment: Hi Linda!
Thank you for a lovely bunch of goodies! Those tweezers are the BOMB! The vintage pc is also appreciated...I love the vintage ones...and I will most definitely use the little notepads in my purse. Thanks a bunch!!
Response: You're welcome. Glad they will be put to good use.
Comment: I received my package today. Thank you soooo much. I actually can use everything you got for me. That's great. Thank you so much!! I love everything!! And my daughter immediately snatched up the fabric and used it as a blanket for her baby doll lol.
Response: :) You're welcome. Glad everything will be used. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: The weather here (in MN) is still snowy-- just got over 6 inches yesterday. Spring won't hit us here until next month; hopefully it will fly by-- I'm looking forward to putting away my bulky winter jacket! Thank you for the postcard! :)
Response: You're welcome. I can't for that warmer weather. I want to get my garage decluttered.
Comment: Hi Linda, thank you! The note book is awesome. Thanks! I really like your card too. Vellum always looks so nice. I like all the different techniques you used. I've had some vellum for a while but never really used it in card making. I feel inspired to give it a go now. ATCs are supposed to be 2.5x3.5 inches, just so you know for next time. I really love the pink bird ribbon you used, it's really lovely. Thanks!
Response: You're welcome. Glad you were happy with the package. Thank you for the heart. That was the first ATC I made and I think I'm addicted.hehe. I'm sorry about the size I'll have to triple check next time...thank you for letting me know...thought I had it measured right. :)
Comment: If I could send you two hearts, I would! WOW! Thanks SO MUCH for all the great stuff in this swap! My daughter is over the moon at the punch balloons ;) and my dogs right away stole the toy. This was above and beyond and much appreciated. Thanks again!!! Happy swapping :)
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the heart and the thought on a second heart. Glad the items are in good use :)
Comment: OMG! I can hardly wait to brew up my Starbucks! This is a new flavor for me so yeah!!!!! I just purchased new creamer so this is going to be delicious! This huge bag will last me for lots of brews. Thanks for being a super swapper. Hugs, Mona
Comment: Thank you so much for the PA state map postcard. Now that I have completed my "naked" state map collection, I decided to attempt a second collection of all 50 state maps that have not been previously mailed. I'm off to a great start.

Again, Thank you for the wonderful card. :)

Response: You're welcome. I am glad you liked the card. I am enjoying making cards.

Response: You're welcome :) I know husbands can get a little jealous of the fun stuff we get in the mail.haha
Comment: Thanks for the box ~ loved the socks and all the treats, but I realize I should update my profile with books I enjoy. It's not that I wouldn't enjoy the chicken soup sample, but was looking forward to a new-to-me book. Thanks though, I really did like the treats.
Response: You're welcome. Sorry about that. I didn't realize it was a sample.Glad you liked the treats.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely cross and butterfly keychains! You also noted my love for butterflies. And I always think that the message of the cross matches the symbolism of the butterfly--rebirth from lowliness into a beautiful new life because of Christ's gift through the cross. Thanks so much!
Comment: Linda...THANKS for the great FALL items...love the oven mitt and stickers:) Definitely will be able to use both!! I have been enjoing getting to know you through the PA Swappers group:)...Charlene
Response: You're welcome. It's nice getting to know you as well :)
Comment: Hi Linda, We have elk up here and they are fantastic. There is a wildlife conservation farm by Portage, AK and every fall, when the elk got into rut, the bulls get frantic, because the staff feeds in more than one spot and the bulls can't keep track of all of them at one time. They chase Mike, the owner, on his 4 wheeler, as they see him as competition for their cows! Funny Huh!?! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thanks SO very much for all the cool items you sent! I've never seen a recipe box like this one; so cool! The postcards, craft leaflets, and other fun little surprises are all very much appreciated, too:)
Comment: WOW!! What fun this box of purple goodness is! So many great items to play with and use. Gloves will be used today, the little garden stake is now in the fairy garden and the kids are doing crafts with the door hangers. Love it all. Thank you for such a great swap. Hugs, Mona
Response: You're welcome. I'm glad you loved it. I had fun putting it together. :)
