Comment: Lovely swap, thank you! I can't believe it only just arrived! The two date marks on it are 29th June and 9th August, how weird!! I particularly like the embossed letter page and the kitty stickers :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely bookmark!! I took this mail from my mailbox arriving home in the dark and rain late on a Friday afternoon. The best way to start the weekend with your lovely mail. Your wax seals are incredible! Thank you so much again!
Comment: Haha I completely u sweat and about getting sick of your own cooking...I’m soooo bored with my cooking lately...I mix it up but I just want a big fat juicy sloppy burger and seasoned waffle fries...and pizza...we have pickup and to go here but I don’t want to go anywhere that I absolutely don’t have to lol ...and I don’t trust other ppls sanitary protocol lol ...stay safe and healthy 🙂
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing! I'm missing our church also and our Sunday School class. Zoom is just not my idea of true study and worship. Maybe I'm just getting old. Have a great day and stay safe!
Comment: Geocaching sounds so cool! I'd love to give that a try once this is all over. I'm glad I have my dog here with me, it'd be even harder without her company. I hope your community kitty is okay.
Comment: Hi Rebecca,
Today your generously stuffed envelope found its way to my doormat :)
There is certainly some things in there that I will be using in my crafting! Thank you so much for that beautifully embossed envelope <3 I love it! And those hindu cards are too beautiful! Thank you !
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the lovely goodies from your desk declutter. I loved the little book and enjoyed going through it and finding all the neat things. Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the great envelopes and the extra goodies. I can imagine that the colouring in took forever. I hope it was at least destressing and calming. Thanks for hosting this swap!
Response: Thanks for the heart :) Yeah after I did it I thought, oh man now how do I equal that amount of effort in the other envies, but gave up. I enjoy colouring while I listen to Audible sometimes.
Comment: Hi Rebecca, received my Envelop Flip book. Thank you for the goodies. Good timing as I am going to warmer weather next two weeks to Queensland, so the goodies will come in handy for my travel journal.
Comment: Loved the card, thankyou! Such a serious cat! Amazing that you never got chicken pox until 19! I had it twice, at 6 and 14. The second time I got out of a school function, so I was delighted, despite the itches! Thanks for swapping, Tracy.
Comment: Thank you so very much Rebecca. The washi tape just arrived. I’m even more happy with it in real life, thank you for getting it for me. It was also very prettily packaged with a gift tag telling me it was from you. I couldn’t be more happy. I just hope yours arrives soon as well. ❤️
Response: I saw it on your list and thought oh yes that is the one! Haha I am so glad you are happy ^_^ I will have to get myself a roll sometime too!
Comment: Love, love, love my package! Who knew that there were so many great stickers around? And so many I hadn't seen? While I liked them all, special favourites were the cute 'postage' stamps and the fat cats in cups! Thankyou very much for a great swap!
Response: Yay I am glad! You can get more of the cute cats in mugs off of Etsy or perhaps Ebay/Aliexpress ^_^ I think they are adorable too. Thanks for the heart! <3
Comment: Thank you for "Q"uiet places, "R"ecord and "S"piral ATCs in the envelop booklet. I like the Quiet Library ATC! I must do an envelop flip book too! I will sip the Lemon tea you sent me while I think of creating one! Thanks again.
Response: <3 Thanks for the love! I love swapping with you Mary. Have a great weekend.
Comment: Thank you so much for the washi tapes. Got them this week. So kind of Pumpkin Parcel to resend them. The washi are gorgeous. Thank you for folowing up on the initial missing washi.
Will definitely enjoy the tapes.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your favorite picture of the month. Nice job on the birdhouse. I hope they use it! I still have a birdhouse at my grandma's house that I made when I was in elementary school.
Comment: Thank you Rebecca for the lovely handmade cards. I will definitely be using them this Christmas. The cards that I made for this swap were quite plain compared to yours. Thanks for hosting the swap.
Comment: Thanks so much for all the great post cards. I was very happy to receive them. I also adore the pink and purple kiwi stamp, it's gorgeous. Yes, my street is named Ingot after gold. Not that it is paved in it!!!
Response: The stamp is beautiful! I could only afford to buy a couple unfortunately. Thanks for the compliments and the heart ^_^
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. I loved reading your answers to the 20 questions and thought it was a great idea to write them out on postcards. Thank you also for the extra goodies, and for hosting this swap. It was great fun.
Comment: Hi Rebecca, thanks for the postcard from Scotland. I went there many years ago, loved the country side . Weather is like what NZ is like now. Hope you get to go to South Korea, could be an interesting trip. Enjoy the long weekend.
Comment: Received my swap today in the mail. Looking forward to having a lovely cup of tea! Love your stickers. I have been looking at making stickers and now you have inspired me! Good luck with your studying and I am sure you will make an excellent teacher. Thank you for the letter and goodies.
Comment: Hi Rebecca, Thanks for such an awesome envelope of a variety of different items that I can use. Mail only took 2 days to get here, pretty good. Only my 2nd swap in AS and have enjoyed both of them that you have arranged. Hopefully we will swap again. Thanks.
Comment: Hey hey! Sorry about the late rating on this one, your letter got misplaced in the festive flurry and I only just managed to find it! Thanks so much for the ATC, it's gorgeous, and of course the other bits put a big smile on my face too! I'm writing back right away :)
Response: No worries Zin ^_^ No rush if you are busy!
Comment: Thank you for my letter, tea and the little extras. I am so glad that this letter arrived unlike the first one. Thank you for sending it again and I hope all the cooking went well for Christmas.
Response: I am so relieved!! Thank you for being so so so patient!
Comment: Ah-ha, how convenient, right? Gosh I love what you've sent, did you know I didn't actually have any christmas ornaments here in my new house? But now I do! Ahh, we're going to have fun with this ATC series, I'm sure of it. Merry Everything! :)
I happen to have you as a partner for the next swap too :P Merry Everything to you too
Comment: I think it's such a cool thing, you wanting to teach english in Korea! Do you know any korean? I've been planning to learn for a couple months now but haven't had time to go past the alphabet xD
Response: No! This is a fairly recent (within the past week) decision so I haven't started learning anything yet! Hopefully it's not too difficult
Comment: Hey Rebecca, Thanks for all the love on IG!! If you havent been rated by your other partners you may want to reach out to them and let them know your IG username as I had to do like 1 minute of digging to match ig comments to a possible swap partner then check profiles luckily you have IG as a link on SB otherwise wouldnt have known :) now to find the other 2 :(
Response: So sorry!! Thanks for the heart though!!
Comment: Yo, all kinds of cool things in here! I gasped aloud when I saw the print, lino cuts are EXACTLY my jam and I heartily approve of the subject matter! So nice to see the bits and pieces you make! Thanks for a super swap :)
Comment: Hi Rebecca, Thanks once again for a lovely selection of postcards, plus the bonus surprise of a piano p.c. Wonderful! Yes, I think for some letters it will take a bit of creative imagination. :) Cheers, Jenny.
Response: Yay I am so glad it arrived. Sorry I had to lay it flat and the tabs of the envelopes are meant to come out the tops of the page 'slots'. I was so worried the post would think it was too thick!
Comment: Thank you! Nice to have in case I actually MAKE pancakes at some point. When I feel like eating pancakes I'm often so lazy that I buy them ready to eat. It's cheap and easy! If the husband is in charge of pancakes he makes them from a mix ;P Just a bit less lazy than my version!
Response: Haha, well now you have the recipe just in case ;P
Comment: Such a sweetie =) You can never win over the food bowl *sigh* I've had outdoor cats be gone for 2 days and when they come home to a very very worried me it's straight to the food and ignoring me for hours before finally wanting cuddles. Cats are a-holes ;P We just have to adjust.
Response: They totally are haha. Ava decides to go crazy around the house at either 6am or 2am... very frustrating, but as soon as she plonks on my lap all is forgiven :P
Comment: Thank you so, sooo much for being so nice to me on Instagram, leaving lovely comments and likes, I'm glad you were my partner here â™¥ I so hope we get along on Instagram, and you enjoy looking at what i upload there :D New Zealand! The antipodes! I love it :) I wish I could rate you more than one heart! You made my day, thank you!!
Response: Do you know what is hilarious? I had to google what Antipodes meant (beyond the skincare brand) and then facepalmed. I had never heard anyone call us part of the antipodes before :O I had never heard the term at all. Haha so strange. Learning something new everyday ;) I will return rate you with multiple hearts :P <3 <3 <3 <3
Comment: Rebecca, I apologize for not rating for this swap....grace please! I simply hadn't thought about responding it...as I rarely join email swaps. Thanks you for your kind words and for joining this swap. Hope we swap again and send you creative items...hugs....jinanne
Response: That's okay <3 <3 :) Sometimes I lose track when I have so many partners too!
Comment: I love this pocket letter! It's simple but with so much to see. I love the "In This House" poem on the back of your note. And thanks for all the Harry Potter goodies! Oddly, the first time I went on Pottermore, I was sorted into Slytherin. I do have some of the characteristics, but I have so much more in common with Ravenclaw. Then I couldnâ€™t go on the site for a long time, for various reasons. When I went back after their recent re-design, they no longer had any of my original information, even though I used the same ID and password. So I was sorted again, and this time, I landed in Gryffindor! I canâ€™t figure out the difference, and I also canâ€™t figure out how I ended up there instead of in Ravenclaw! Oh well, itâ€™s all fun. I came into the HP world after I saw the first movie. I loved the movie, and immediately borrowed my nieceâ€™s copy of Sorcererâ€™s Stone. I even love the newest book, even though itâ€™s not by Rowling â€“ it still has the flavor of the original books. And I canâ€™t wait for the Fantastic Beasts movie in November! Thanks so much for making this for me!
Comment: Thanks for the comment. I think that the blind auditions are the funnest part for me to watch on The Voice. I was glad Alison Porter won this season; I remember watching Curly Sue with my youngest daughter and never imagined the girl that played her would win the Voice.
Response: She was so deserving too! I loved her voice, I hope she does well.
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable flip book! I really loved learning about you and New Zealand. Love the cute stickers and washi tape and especially the cute little elephant clip. I can tell you put a lot of effort into this swap and I so appreciate it!!
Response: Yay!!! I am so glad :) I don't have that much craft-y stuff so I was worried it would look a bit empty or plain. So I am glad you like it!
Comment: Hi!! Guess what arrived in my mail!!! Your second attempt :D Thank you so very much!!! If I could give a bunch of hearts I would!!! I loved everything about it...from the hand colored, handmade envie, to your letter and the songs...which I think there is a few ...OK more then a few...songs for me to add into my music library! And then the flat surprise's were fab! Love the swap!!! <3 <3 <3
Response: Yay I am sooo gladdddd. The first one mustve gotten lost if that one made it to you :( I keep thinking that maybe I wrote the wrong address or something :/ But I am so glad you liked #2! :D
Comment: Thank you for this! I actually only knew a couple of songs so it was nice to get to know some new ones. I really liked the Crowder one, hadn't heard it before. (Sorry for late rating, have had internet issues past few days.)
Comment: Hello Rebecca :) Thank you so much for your birthday card :) I know that you did your best in working for it :) Thank you for the cards, the washi sample tape :)
By the way, how was your 21st birthday?
Response: Yay I am so glad it arrived!! :D My 21st was great. As many partys are, it was stressful getting everything organized, but the actual night was lovely. On my birthday the night before my family and I went out for dinner. Also we welcomed back my sister who we haven't seen in 4 years so that was super exciting :) Thanks for the heart! <3
Comment: This postcard is lovely! Love the watercolor and embossed feel! ( someone is very good at profile based swapping. ) The poem was a great find, thank you for sharing it with me :)
Response: Hehe you are so very very welcome :) I got it from a New Zealand designer at his stall at a market. He is so lovely and I loved the design so I bought it and kept it for something special :) I am so so glad you like it! <3 HAPPY SWAPPING
Comment: Haha you answered some questions using more than just one word :D :D :D But it was a little tricky lol I struggled too! Thanks for your answers! I loved your answer to the question about the meaning of life :)
Comment: I love all washi tapes but i especially like the red birds and that tiny one with the oranges. I've never seen any that small. I've tried to cut some but I can't cut straight. Thank you so much!
Response: Thanks for the heart! :) The orange one is part of a mini set from MT :) they have a green version and a pink one with the orange in a set. :) They are so cute.
Comment: Hi Rebecca! I just got your lovely postcard from Ontario Canada..I have been there many years ago, it is really beautiful! I live next to the Atlantic Ocean, next to the Kennedy Space Center. And very near Disney World. It's always summer here, I miss the winter seasons from growing up near Washington DC! Thank you again for the postie--- have a great week!
Response: Hi! I wish I was close to Disney world :'(
Comment: Very nice facts, thank you! I actually knew some of them as I've been in NZ three years ago. I've even visited Baldwin street, though I didn't walk up there (I went by car :P).And I love Wellington, one of my favourite cities in the world :)
Response: That's so nice to hear! I have only been to the south island once and for about 3 hours as part of a school trip. I long to spend a summer wizzing around exploring
Comment: Hello again, Rebecca! It's always nice to find you here :D Great facts about NZ! I must thank Peter Jackson for making me love your landscapes and put NZ in my "must go" list
Response: Hi! :) He captured so much of our landscape that makes me just go wow! Do I actually live here or is it fantasy haha. He helped make me very proud of the country I live in . tHANKS FOR THE HEART!
Comment: 1) great view! 2) What a beautiful cat! Milly looks a lot like my cat Perla, even the same eye color! Perla's hair is short though, but they even have a very similar gaze! OMG I think I just fall in love with your cat
Response: Thank you! Hehe Milly is really lovely. She's not particularly affectionate unless she is half asleep haha.
Comment: Hi, it's me again >_< Yes, who would think that making a list like this one would be so hard! Keep ypurself warm and cozy :) It's getting chilly here too, fellow southern hemisphere's inhabitant.
Response: Hahaha thanks for the rating and comment :) I can imagine it stays warmer there? Whenever I think of Argentina I think of warmth and sun.
Comment: thank you for the cute stickers! it was exciting getting international mail. we don't see some of those stickers here, & my girls were trying to take them lol. we will share. thank you! â¤
Response: Ooh that is so great to hear! SO often I worry that I send stickers that people have already. My selection is rather limited - mostly to Korean made/designed stickers, that is, unless you splash out! Your welcome! Thanks for the heart, thanks from New Zealand! :) â™¥
Comment: Thanks for the owl stickers! You know what, I'm pretty sure I've seen the same ones here.
Response: Aw, that's a shame. Sorry :( I'd never seen those before so I hoped you hadn't either. All of our stickers are imported from overseas except for a few NZ souviner ones. I hope you like them anyway!
Comment: Hi Rebecca !!!! Thank you so much for your 15 questions swap. I was really surprise!!!! I like Pizza very much too!!!
May all your dreams come true! It's snowing in Russia, - 15Â°C
Best wishes from Russia, â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ Yulia.
Response: Hey Yulia, you too! Stay warm! I just got sunburnt today in New Zealand haha. Very different! Have a great day!
