Comment: Thank you for the envelope of awesome goodies! I loved the Gudetama and cassette tape stickers! I know this swap wasn’t profile based, so I really appreciate you taking the time to send me things I like. Your envelope was my favorite out of all the ones I got for this swap. :)

Comment: Thank you for sharing you goals with me! I think your list seems really reasonable and I'm sure you can accomplish everything, or at the very least, get very close! It would be interesting to know how much of the list you accomplish. I'd love to send you a copy of my list! I'll try to get that done over the weekend! Happy Swapping!
Comment: I love that you chose to be nicer to yourself this year. When I first saw your word I was like.... oh she thinks she needs to be nicer to people.... but then I read on and totally got it. Thanks for sharing and I love your word. Good luck with it. I think we could all stand to be nicer to ourselves.
Comment: Thank you so, so much for an amazing STMB swap- I love EVERYTHING that you sent and I am so excited to use it! I have no idea why it took 2 months to arrive (I totally see the July postmark date), but it did, so better late than never, right? Thank you again!
Comment: I love that we all did the same words. I also remember that our cafeteria was much bigger than it really is. And I think it is so funny that we both made zines with our family station wagon in it. Thanks for sending.
Response: Thanks for your comment! It *is* so funny that we all chose the same words! But I also want to try Dole Whip from your description!!! Thanks for coordinating these interesting swaps!!!

Comment: Your zine was super special to me. I feel like we had similiar interests in toys in our childhood. First of all.... the Care Bear on the cover.... ahhhh Sunshine Bear.... or Cheer Bear? So sweet and then Holly Hobbie. My mom did my whole nursery in Holly Hobby and my grandpa and dad did the Holly Hobbie paint by number pictures for my baby room. I still remember them and wish I had them. I do have the doll and some of the fabric and a H.H. calendar from 1975 when I was born!! And I also had the mean bullies at my school. But I survived those jerks! Oh and out of everything.... when I saw the picture of The Gingham Girls paperdolls I squeeled! I bought a PDF of the paper dolls and have printed them out. And the Gingham Girl physica set that I owned back in the early/ mid 80's was Carrie the brunette girl. Crazy how much I could relate to your zine. Thank you do so much! I still love paper dolls and toys. I love to collect toys from my childhood. I have a few of the Fisher Price Little People sets like the A Frame, the brown house, the village and the farm. I also have some Garbage Pail trading cards and my Bedtime Bear care Bear.
Response: Awwww, yay! I’m so glad you connected to it like that! I am very nostalgic these days and love looking at items and pictures that I loved as a kid. I also truly loved your zine. I’m going to look for Ginghams paper dolls printables now! Thanks for the tip!
Comment: I got your envelope number 2 out of 2 to begin with! So beautiful and I love the coloring pages you included! THANK YOU
12/6 - Now I got envelope number 1 as well - it was so well made and pretty. Thank you so much and such a fun idea to send it in two envelope. Dubble the suprise!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you received both of them! (Phew!). On decorated pocket - I tried to make some of the decorations removable so you can re-use them if you like. 💌
Comment: I want to give you all the hearts! Mary! This is one of the coolest swaps I have received on here! You did an amazing job and inspired me! I have always wanted to craft a coffee/tea theme but didn't have many items to use but you have sent me all the things! I can't wait to craft with them! I love this so much, it's definitely getting displayed in my home office! The color combo of the teal envelope with the black floral, yellow and brown from coffee is my favorite and the different washi you used! I love this so much, Thank you! 🥰
Response: Yay!!! I am so glad that you liked it, Ashley! That's great that you liked the color combo - at first I really liked it, too, but then I second guessed it - I'm glad it worked. :-) Thank you for this fun review. <3
Comment: Thanks for the letter and the extras! Going theu this was a lot of fun. Thanks so so much. Loved reading more about you. I love 80s and 90s stuff too. I was a kid in tbe 80s and I was in high school in the 90s college later part of the 90s and married in 1997 to my first husband. Thanks so much
Ps I really love the fruit stickers and wish like in the 70s they were scratch and sniff. Lol.
Response: Oh I’m so glad it arrived and that you liked the swap! Thank you for the review! 🌈🦄💕💌📬
Comment: I love, love all of my Swap items and really appreciate the fact that you read my profile and gave me so many things that I like and wanted. The vintage things are so cool. I was thrilled to get the buttons too because I like to use those on ATCs. The stationary is so cute with the flowers and mailbox.
Response: I’m so happy you liked the swap! I’m glad I had things that fit your likes! I’m a vintage and mailbox lover, too! Thanks for the review!

Comment: Mary! What an amazing swap! Thank you so much for everything! My mind kept exploding as I went through the envelope! The astrology stickers are the perfect size!

Comment: Thank you so much Mary for the absolutely amazing flipbook! I loved how you decorated all the pages and I'm so excited to use all of the goodies ❤ Will try to send you a reply within the next couple of weeks!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful letter and extras! Your stationary is beautiful! That sounds like the type of walk I would enjoy. I bet you have some amazing plants and wildlife where you live (jealous). A special hello to Scout!
Comment: aaaaaaaa if I could give u a million hearts I would! thank u so so much for all the kawaii goodies I am so obsessed with everything u send me♡ the little 1999 envelope made me squeal as well as the mini Sanrio stickers. Heck, I smiled throughout the entire unboxing!! The package was decorated so so nicely too thank u so much 💗
Comment: Right off the bat thank you! the top two things instantly grabbed my attention. Stickers - one of them Psychic readings and then the white tiger paper!
Then owls, postcard, a fun paper for an envelope that I will take no scissors to as per recommendation :D :D
the two colored paper is new - where did that come from?
Thank you for all the goodies! <3
Response: Oh I am so glad you found things you liked in the swap! That makes me so happy! 😆. Ss for the two colored paper — I’m trying to remember what it was. If it a special blue color one — it was probably from the Flow Book for Paper Lovers most recent edition.
Comment: I really liked your quaranzine - personal, honest, and heartfelt. The illustrations were great, especially the on-line therapist. I hope things get better and better for you. You're not alone! And you've sent terrific goodies with your zine. I love the vintage typewriter ad and all the fun, mysterious stickers. Such a generous little envie of postage stamps - love these oldies. Just a wonderful assortment of ephemera perfect for art projects. Thanks for a Great Mail Day.
Response: I'm glad you liked the happy mail. I love it when I can locate things that match with a person's profile. Thanks for the review!
Comment: I just got your zine a few moments ago and I have to say that I am blown away!! Wow!!! loved all the thoughts and feelings you shared of quarantine. It felt so honest and real. I really appreciate it and am going to add it to my own personal journal that has friends thoughts of the Covid experience. Thanks!!!
Response: I really appreciate all that you wrote about my zine! It means a lot! <3 <3 <3
Comment: I loved picturing the image of along your guinea pig for a walk. I agree that snail mail and Tiger King were like lifelines during those early scary days. Thank you for sharing your experiences and zone with me.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package! Is it strange that my favorite item is actually the little cactus card? It's perfectly vintage! Also - the vintage stamps are great! I've never received a stamp from Cameroon before!! Thanks, and happy swapping :)
Comment: Thank you for your swap, Mary! I know it was your first swap, typically we don't send duplicates for swaps and I'm only mentioning it because you're new! and I appreciate that you sent a second package to make up for the Sanrio sheets.
Response: Good to know about the duplicates, thank you! I’m so glad the second package! 😊
