Comment: Hey Girl! Thank you so much for the (not one, but, two) Memory Dex cards! They really made my day! I love how vintagey they look! You should be getting mine soon! Take care and thanks again! ♥️ Hugs! Jill
Comment: Ok that was the wrong rating.. LOL THIS is the right one!
I cannot WAIT to read all of this! your area isn't far from mine at ALL ! I have never been to CT for more than just a drive through but now that I see all the history that is there, we will definitely take a weekend and head up and check it out!!!
Response: Thank you for the rating and come visit I show you around a few of my favorite places .
Comment: Hey Friend! I really love this memory dex that you sent me! It is so cute and I love the base is round! I really like how you are using a lot of different styles each time you send me one! Great job! And I see you are using the new punch! Isn’t it great! Game-changer! ♥️ Jill
Response: I love the new punch and thank you I am so happy it got to you safe and sound and I just love crafting and making a new Instagram today
Comment: I’m sorry to say I never received your swap/ But because times are rather chaotic I simply gave you a 5 rating.
Response: I am not happy that it never got to you I even put tracking and it said it was delivered now I am pissed about that I put a lot of work into my mini pocket letter for you and added a lot of goodies as well
Comment: Updated: 3/21/2020***received two additional decos yesterday and received payment for the tea deco I sent home *** As discussed, one of the decos was a last signer, which was never communicated to me per swap rules. On Feb. 27, 2020, sent a private message to Malaina alerting her of this issue. On Feb. 28, 2020, received a reply stating she had sent another 2 deco books off to me. On Feb. 29, she responded to my message and is willing to pay the cost of shipping the last signer book home once completed. As of March 14, 2020, I have not received the new books.
I will change my rating to a 5 if she sends me postage to send home the book after I get a chance to complete it, hoping in the next couple of weeks. I'll stay in touch.
*** In response to your reply on 3/14: I have not received your resend as of today, 3/14. I will happily change this rating to a 5 once I receive payment for postage to send home last signer after I complete the book and go to PO.
Response: And as I said I did send the others off to you already and the postage I said I will take care of as long as you tell me what it was going to cost
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful pocket letter and extras. I love the little pocket and the bookmark is so pretty. You did a wonderful job 💜 What do you think of the new season? I’m enjoying it so far. It seems like forever since it’s been on. Thanks for hosting!
Response: So far so good I am just love the TV show so much and it has felt like it was on so long ago and I am super happy that it got to safe and sound was getting a little worried especially that mail has been taking forever recently and have not been getting rated recently either.
Comment: Roommates are the worst! I remember grabbing my housing deposit right after doing a 3 night orientation with a stranger...Still friends with her, but I would never live with her. :P
PS. These tiny playing cards are the cutest.
Comment: Thank you for the letter and the fun washi! I’m sorry that you’ve seen an increase in swaplifting. That’s no fun at all. I agree that people cheating about sending on time is sorta understandable, but just ghosting is the lamest!
Comment: I hope your new job is getting better!
I can't believe it's that tough to find postcards in CT. In NYC, you just need to get close to a tourist trap and it's tourist postcards galore!
Thanks for the extra goodies! :)
Comment: I hope your interview turned into a job this week! 😘Best is luck in the hunt!
Response: I had the interview but haven't heard back yet so I am also hoping that I get the job also, if not than I am going to have to cut back on swapping and I don't want that to happen at all especially that swapping is my way to relax.Have a great weekend.
Comment: thank you so much! you went above and beyond. I received the pocket letter on the same day and would like to let you know that it was gorgeous! I've never made one before but I think it's time that I do with all the little extras you included <3
Comment: Thanks for the notecard! That's great that you are passionate about criminal justice reform and write to inmates. I have thought about it, but I'm not the most reliable correspondent right now, so I'll look into it again in the future.
Comment: Thank you for your letter, and for the print with Interesting Facts about your city :) I had some difficulties with your handwriting, but I was able to figure out most of the unclear words in the end :D
Response: Sorry about the hand writing I had a sprain wrist so I was trying to write as neat as I could
Comment: Oh my, what a beautiful pocket letter, thank you so much! I appreciate all the time you spent creating it, it shows. I can hardly tell which is the front, they are both so lovely. I LOVE all the vintage images so much. Happy New Year! :D
Response: Happy New Year and I am glad that it got to you safe abs sound and I just love doing pocket letters I am glad that you love the vintage images
Comment: Thank you for your note! Year I love the Outlander books! I am very happy with how they are doing the series too! I hope that your knee continues to improve! Have a Merry Christmas & Wonderful New Year!
Comment: Ugh. Those people are the worst. Thanks so much for the panda stickers! :) (Just a small bit of advice... maybe next time, you can just put the sheet in without the fold. Now a few pandas can't be used. :(
Response: I am sorry for the stickers being folder wanted to make sure they got to you next time I will cut the sheet in half to fit .
Comment: Hi Malaina! I agree that notecards with lines would be awesome - maybe a thought for a business for you? You did not do bad - my writing is all over the place when I don't have lines but maybe someday we will both be happy with lined notecards! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks for understanding where I am coming from I might just make something to have lines for notecards

Response: Thank you for the rating and the extra hearts. I am super happy that it got to safe :) And can't wait to read about stories.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your story with me. I was in a car accident when I was very young, and while I don’t have PTSD it has made it really hard for me to learn how to drive myself, so I empathize
Response: Thank you for understanding and thank you for the rating.
Comment: What fun! Thanks so much for joining and sending a great swap.Will certainly be using all the fun stuff you sent.Sweet ATC and washi.

Comment: Hi Malaina, I hear you, I have a hard time finding interesting postcards too! Vermont must be so beautiful at this time of year, I would love to see all the fall colors. Oh and thanks fore the Christmas washi!
Response: Your welcome for the washi-tape and it was very pretty in Vermont just a little colder than here in Waterbury
Comment: Thanks for you letter. I understand how you feel about flakers and late/non-raters. You have inspired me to do a better job of staying on top of everything from sending to rating. Thanks for hosting this swap.
Response: Your very welcome and I am glad that I inspired you to do better on rating
Comment: Thank you for the cute Thanksgiving pocket letter, Malaina! How clever to add the leaves to the side (definitely going to steal that idea!)! Enjoyed reading your letter - I don't plan on watching Hallmark Christmas shows, it just happens! I usually have that channel on while in the evenings while I'm crafting and get caught up in them!! Even the ones I've seen before! Have a great Thanksgiving!
Response: Thank you so much I am glad that you enjoyed the pocket letter and I can’t believe that they already have Christmas movies on Hallmark
Comment: I feel your pain about Connecticut postcards - sometimes I order from Amazon, but mostly I buy way too many when I go on vacation and use those. Sometimes I can find them locally at museums or Hallmarks. They're a challenge!
Response: I can't join a lot of swaps because of this problem
Comment: Partners again! Who-hoo! What fun.
Thank you again for another outstanding job on this mini pocket letter. I’ve only done a few of these mini pockets.if you’d like to do another private pocket letter swap just pm me.

Comment: Thanx so much for the nice letter. Loved your extras and you have very unique penmanship! At one time about 15 yrs ago I had 40 penpals. Mostly moms &/or artists. I got 11 letters one Fri. What a happy mail day that was! 💕
I love snail mail!
Response: Your so very welcome for the letter and thank you for saying I have unique hand writing my husband tells me that I write like a child and I tell him no my handing writing is just mine learn to love it or hate it . I am still wait on a lot of my mail and I am hoping it all come in soon like how you got mail on Friday
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note (and the extra note card - I love it!) Yes, I also love watching the Outlander series. My friend and I argue over who is going to marry Jaime. You don't think it will be a problem that I am already married, do you? Thank you again.
Response: No problem at alll I am can’t wait until the next season is going to start and I love Jamie and Clair together but they make such a great marriage and me and my husband argue over the tv show and I love love that tv show so much
Comment: Thank you for the letter and washi samples c: The weather here is hot and humid with very little little rain here and there :/ its been above 100 degrees F for most days in September. I love that you make your own address labels :D I would love to learn how to make my own cute ones just to have some, lol.
Response: If you ever want me to make some for you just let me know and I can do it not a problem at all
Comment: The stationery you sent is so pretty and bright, I love bright colors, thank you. Valentines Day with your sweet husband, sounds awesome. Criminal Justice, I'm sure you know about the Amber Guyger trial that was taking place here in Dallas. Everyone here has been glued to their TVs watching the trial live. I'm so glad it's over. Happy swapping
Response: I don't watch that much with the news but that is something that I will have to bring up in my next class and I am happy to hear that you liked the stationary .
Comment: Thanks for your nice letter.
I listed Autumn as my favorite... mostly because it is a relief from summers heat, but I do love winter. The snow, snowshoeing, snowmen and all. I can't wait for this winter, when my granddaughter will be old enough [almost 3] to really enjoy the snow. Last winter was pretty much limited to pulling her in the sled. I got snowshoes for her to try this year.
Comment: I loved ur letter and goodies!!! Extra hearts coming ur way! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for the washi samples!!I totally thought it was a great idea to put it on a playing card! Man I wish I was that creative! Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Sorry, I still haven´t received it.
9.9.2019 - I din´t have any message from you here! I wrote you I didn´t receive that letter, you wrote me you will send it again. It´s almost one year. I believe it´s lost.. It happen sometimes. Did you sent it as a private tracking letter?
20.9. I received it.
Response: Now that you got it can you please change my rating
Comment: I am sorry this is so late! I have been on vacation. Thank you so much for the great selection of stuff. I seriously loved everything you sent me! One of the bookmarks is in my book I am currently reading.
Comment: Hi! Thank you for your letter and the stamped images. I want to let you know that it would have been better if they were stamped on thicker paper and not on normal copy paper. Also if the images stamped in the middle of the paper hadn't been folded in half... (for your reference for future similar swaps :)
Response: Thank you for letting me know still getting the hang of things next time I know what not to do thanks again
Comment: I love everything you included, but I especially loved your letter! That handwritten note was really fun to read and it was paired with a perfectly profile-matched swap. Thank you so much for the thoughtfulness you put into this package - I absolutely love everything! :)
