Comment: Thank you Rori for so cute images on the PC you sent to me for the swap! You are a great mom to be active in your children's lives. Imagine they loved the pizza. My family moved me closer to their home, occasionally I see my niece & nephews.
Response: Thank you for the sweet message! I’m so glad you like what I sent. ☺️💞
Comment: Wow! Your post card was sent on 12/10 & I just got it today. I've been getting quite a few post cards now that were sent out way earlier in the month. I guess the P O doesn't count post cards for much=) Thanks for sending & Happy New Year!
Response: Whoa! Well I’m glad it arrived before 2019 😂 Mail has been coming to me slowly too. Must be a busy time of year for the post office!
Comment: I usually don't take issue with Mondays, but this one has certainly been lousy. I can't imagine having one with food poisoning would be any better! Glad it has passed for you. Thanks for joining.
Response: The only good thing about food poisoning is how amazing you feel when it’s finally over 😅I hope you’re having a good week so far
Comment: So cute, I love the vintage theme ones, I sent the same kind out myself haha. What a lovely time for a birthday! I don't have any kiddos, but I have 2 nephews, one 10 and the other about to turn 6 too in November. Such a sweet age! Thanks for joining my swap!
Response: It was a really fun swap! I need to find more of these PCs as I’ve nearly used all of mine. Hope you have a fun 🎃☺️
Comment: Hi Rori, thanks for two packages! The first one came one day after the re-send, so now I feel very very very lucky, thanks!!!
Response: Yay! Glad it finally got to you. The re-send is on its way too. I sent it with this week’s mail. So you’ve got more happy mail on the way. Maybe it will get to you more quickly than the first 😆
Comment: + many more hearts! Rori, I loved that little snail notecard an everything inside. First thing I saw (and loved) was that 'Happy Mail' sticker on the outside--so cute--the little envelope with his arms waving. Love the pc's, especially that gorgeous vintage card, and all the other little goodies. Really special; thank you!
Response: Oh, I’m so happy you like what I included for you!! I love those happy mail stickers too 😄💖
Comment: Thank you for the post card with the recommendation. Right now I'm into a vampire book. I like the scary ones. 108 degrees ------ Not for me. Ours here in Iowa has been low 80's. Even got down to 57 degrees over night. Thanks again.
Response: You’re welcome. 108 isn’t for me either. I would love your weather. It sounds much nicer! 😊
Comment: Fantastic postcard! I heard everything is bigger in Texas...lol I have to say that Southern California is still pretty good. We live near the coast and in a big city so it it is quite habitable... :-)
Response: Haha! I would happily move if we could afford it but I thought that PC was pretty funny. I would really love California, especially the weather and proximity to the beach 💖
Comment: Thank you for the wide view of Attack of the Clones, Episode 11. I'm not familiar with this show. My postal code was incorrect, and there was a sticker showing that. It might have been a minor delay, but FYI.
Response: Glad it made it to you! I must have been extra tired when I wrote the post code. Sorry about that 🙃
Comment: The envelope looks amazing. Very much like the current weather here, in Poland. It's so sunny and beautiful like in the middle of summer :) Thank you very much for all of these goodies. Unicorn sticky-notes are so cool and kitty/bunny sticker are super cute! They will be perfect for my bullet journal! Have a nice June!
Response: Hooray! I’m so glad you like the envie and what I included ❤️
Comment: Holy cow!!!! Thank you SO SO much for the Star wars postcard with the startbucks sticker on it! I LOVE it! No ma'am, I can't believe summer is almost here - where did time go?? Enjoy yours, and thank you again.
Response: You’re welcome! I’m so happy you like it. Now I’m off to hug my air conditioner 🤣
Comment: I love your envelopes, the different pages, and sizes. I'll use them, they are functional, and that's the point-I think they are made well. I loved the envie you sent them in, and all those oscar de la renta stamps! Wowzer!
Response: Oh, I’m so relieved you like the envelopes! Hooray!! Aren’t those stamps pretty? ☺️
Comment: Hi Rori, thank you for the swap! I love the note card and cat stickers. A special thank you for noticing my birthday! I really love the simple design on the envelope as well, I plan to use that idea. :)
Response: You’re welcome! I’m so happy you liked what I sent and the envie ☺️
Comment: Thank you! The envelope, stickers, notecards...I just love everything you just sent me. Yes, we have spring here, too. Snow has melted away, birds are singing. I just wait to see first flowers on the ground and first leaves on the trees to coming soon. Happy spring!
Response: Happy Spring! So happy to hear that you like what I sent you 🌸💌
Comment: Hi and thank you for the Happy Mail. I love all the quizzical things and the Llama card is great, made in Chicago, sent to me from you in Texas and now I'm using it as a birthday card for my friend in Tennessee (travelled more than me!). My friend says she regularly stops by a neighbourhood llama farm to admire the sweet creatures...so thank you so much!
Response: You’re welcome! I love that the llama card is getting to continue its adventure ☺️
Comment: I loved everything about this swap- from the decorated envelope to the kawaii notecards, the variety of stickers and those Batman and spidey stickers! It's been ages since I've had such a nice stash. :D
Response: Hooray! I’m so glad you like what I sent for you. I had fun putting it together for you ☺️

Response: You’re welcome! I’m glad you like what I sent ☺️💌
Comment: Oh Rori, thank you so much for the lovely card, ephemera, and especially the sticker flakes! I love adding these to all the postcards I send, and I was almost out so these came at the perfect time!
Response: Hooray for perfect timing! I LOVE these happy flat mail swaps so much. I’m so happy you like what I included for you. Hugs!
Comment: I was feeling a bit under the weather today and was pleasantly surprised by your wonderful mailing. While sipping blueberry tea, I had the pleasure of perusing all the cute papers, stickers, and postage stamps you sent. Thanks for the boost!
Response: Oh, this is so lovely. I hope you are feeling well today. I’m so happy to have brightened your day 💖
Comment: Hi Rori, Thank you for the Happy Mail, I really liked the mermaid note cards. I didn't give a heart because the envelope wasn't decorated as required in the swap instructions "at least 50% of the envelope/package needs to be altered". Best Regards, LoriD.
Response: Hmm. Sorry I didn’t decorate it. I must have forgotten in my rush to catch up after Spring Break. Glad you liked what I sent.
Comment: Hi Rori! WOWZA! The envelope was gorgeous, the Washi roll and samples spectacular, the emphemera perfection and I'm lovin' me the stickers! Great swap, thank you so much for joining in the fun :)
Response: Hooray! I'm so glad you like what I sent. :)
Comment: Wow! Amazing "Star Wars" long view PC, awesome the way, graphically, made speeders look like they are moving fast. Thank you for sending this PC to me for the swap. Hope you have a Happy February.
Response: Youâ€™re welcome! Iâ€™m so glad you like it. Happy swapping ðŸ˜ŠðŸ’Œ
Comment: Hej Rori,
Thank you for the cool PC. Ah, but your handwriting is still legible. My Doctor says I should be a doctor based on how hard it is to read my normal handwriting. When I actually write to someone it takes forever as I am concentrating so hard to be legible.
Response: So glad you could read it! Haha! Hope you're having a lovely week so far.
Comment: First off, I'm very sorry for the late rating! Secondly, I LOVE this "Penguin Cookery Book" pc! I do like cooking and baking, but I don't do it very often. I don't have any Kitchen Common Sense, so while I love to follow recipes, if the instructions are off in any way, I don't know enough to recognize that and so disasters ensue. (I once almost set my kitchen on fire; "heat pan, add oil" . . . if it hadn't been for that glaze put on the wooden cabinets above the stove. . .) But again, THANK YOU for this pc! :-)
Response: Youâ€™re welcome! Iâ€™m so glad you liked it â˜ºï¸ðŸ’Œ
Comment: SO, long story, but I'm going to go ahead and type it here, as succinctly as possible ... there's a woman at work who wears a black hoodie (hood up) and there are times that she will look at someone or something with that hood, and so, kind of behind her back, I call her Darth Maul... SO, I get to the PO, and what's staring back at me when I open my box???? I could have peed myself I was laughing so hard. So many 5s and hearts for the AWESOME PC and your amazing resolutions!!!
Response: Lmao! That is hilarious! Glad you enjoyed the PC and thank you for sharing the story ðŸ¤£ðŸ’Œ
Comment: Oh Rori, you really made my day! What a awesome selection...the food cards really made me smile! All I can say is: Thank you so much! Hope you have had a great start into the new year. Well wish you a splendid 2018, may your some of your dreams come true! And now have a nice evening.
Response: Hooray! Iâ€™m so glad you like what I sent â˜ºï¸ðŸ’Œ
Comment: Hello Rori! Thanks so much for the neat postcard! My husband got the mail out of the box today and immediately recognized it as a scene from Star Wars! Your resolutions sound like good ones to me! Some of mine are to be less of a procrastinator and a more proactive person overall and to travel as much as I can!
Response: Those sound like good goals! Glad yâ€™all like the Star Wars PC. I bought a big box of them and I love that theyâ€™re big so I have more space to write. ðŸ˜ŠðŸ’Œ
Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap. I was thinking about writing my penpal today, Iâ€™ll be using this paper as she would like it. I also like the postage stamps that you used, ones I havenâ€™t seen yet, so excited about them. Everything was wonderful thank you very much and the best to you and your family in 2018.
Response: Youâ€™re welcome! So glad you like the stamps and can use what I included for you. Hereâ€™s wishing you a lovely 2018! â˜ºï¸ðŸ’Œ
Comment: I love the stamp you used. It brought me back to reading my children 'The Snowy Day' although those days are long gone for me I still have the book and it's one of my favourites! Thank you for the happy mail.
Response: Youâ€™re welcome. I love those stamps too ðŸ˜ŠðŸ’Œ
Comment: Can I give you 20 stars or something?!?! LOL I absolutely LOVE this! (*Keep this a secret! Literally NO ONE knows this about me but I have this weird thing about teeth!! I've always wanted to collect them but never started. I draw them sometimes too. I am a very strange person!!) I love that postcard you sent along with everything else and the neat stamps you used on the envelope too! Thank you so much! :)
Response: Oh, that is so cool!! Iâ€™ve had that PC for more than a year and added it to your envie at the last minute because I felt like you might appreciate it. Iâ€™m so happy to read your comment! You made my day ðŸ˜ŠðŸ’Œ
Comment: Wow you're not gonna believe this but I received two for October today. The first one you originally sent and to resend - The recent was obviously faster than original one. Both of them had amazing stuff in them and I greatly appreciate them so different from what you normally get. Thank you so much and you got my name for November so if you haven't sent it for November consider it sent. ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’›â¤ï¸
Response: Oh, how wild! Hooray for twice the happy mail ðŸŽ‰ðŸŽ‰ Iâ€™m so glad you enjoyed what I included. Keep an eye out for more happy mail ðŸ˜‰ðŸ’Œ
Comment: OH my goodness what lovely items, and timing! Received this on my way out of town so it gives me some cards to use to write my pen pals while I'm away. The card with glitter and "sequins" is fantastic! Thank you so much!
Response: Hooray!! I thought that sequined card was beautiful and I'm so happy to read that you like it. I love that this swap got to you in time for your adventure. Have fun! ðŸ’Œ
Comment: You chose the Perfect PC for me. Owl, Moon, Cats, Branches, Night Scene, Night Sky - Cute Embellishments, Vintage Postage and Wonderful Note!! I have a minecraft fan like your son -my 11 yr old Grandson and Happy Trick or Treating - Night of Chocolate Magic for you Daughter -- Hope We Swap Again --
Response: Hooray!! I'm so happy you liked the one I chose for you. My little Minecraft fan is sitting next to me, giggling away while playing with some of his Minecraft toys. ðŸŽƒðŸ’Œ
Comment: ALL! THE! HEARTS!!!!! OMG Rori, I am so tickled by the goodies you sent me. The vinyl stickers, the tree page markers, Jenni Bowlin stickers, the washi tape (SQUEEE!) and all this yummy goodness in the coolest hand-made envelope ever. Thanks so much! May the rainy October days continue and make you happy and peaceful. xox
Response: Yay!! I'm so happy you like what I sent â¤ï¸ðŸ’Œ
Response: You're welcome! I'm so glad you like them. I just found the little notes about my favorite Halloween memory which means I forgot to include them when I sent these out ðŸ¤¦ðŸ»â€â™€ï¸ My favorite is my son being born on Halloween morning in 2012! ðŸŽƒðŸ’Œ
Comment: Thank you so much! Very cute card ðŸ˜Š I love the tea and stickers!!! ðŸŽƒðŸŒ¼ðŸ’
Response: I'm so glad you like them. I just found the little notes about my favorite Halloween memory which means I forgot to include them when I sent these out ðŸ¤¦ðŸ»â€â™€ï¸ My favorite is my son being born on Halloween morning in 2012! ðŸŽƒðŸ’Œ
Comment: Thank you so much for all thise generous and amazing items you have sent for this swap. I am still swooning over every single piece and cannot even tell what I like the most. Thank you so much. ðŸ’•ðŸ’•ðŸ’•
Response: Oh, I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the what I included. I had fun putting this together for you â˜ºï¸ðŸ’Œ
Comment: I kind of feel like you have been inside my head.... if I rifled through the piles on your desk, these are exactly the things I would have picked. Orange old-school postcard, BAM! stickers, an Elsie card... you rock so hard. : ) Thanks!!!!!
Response: Yay!! So glad you liked what I included. I had fun putting that little collection together for you ðŸ’Œ
Comment: Thanks for the SOC. I think that I found out a ton of things from you in just one short little letter. I hope your son will get off the baby wagon soon, sorry it's so hot here; I'll quit complaining about our almost 90 degree weather, NO BUNNIES! You already have 2 "little bunnies" to clean up after now - why have the furry kind. I hope a better job comes open for you if it's for the college or for somewhere else. Huggles to you and yours.
Comment: Dear For I, thank you so much for your heartfelt letter...sharing your life and telling me about All of your children. I am not yet ok from all that has happened to me this year...but I get up everyday and try again. I will send you a letter soon.
Comment: Funny card--thank you. You may not want to move to Colo. - so many more have beat you to it, and the cost of living has sky-rocketed. But I do love it--was born here and have lived in the Denver area all my life. Wanted to let you know you had way too much postage on the card-it only needed one postcard stamp which is less than 1 of the regular forever stamps you had on the card.
Response: Ha! I must have been sending lots of international mail with yours. That or I was just super excited about the stamps ðŸ˜†
Comment: Thank you for these question answers, Rori! Two things that jumped out at me: I too head to the sticker section first in hobby/craft stores! I always NEED to see if they have any new (or the same!) of the small varieties that are great for using on postcards. :-) Also, I too hate the heat (and am also living in the wrong state *sigh*) and need caffeine! Without any caffeine, I am guaranteed to get a headache that will turn into a migraine! :-( I also really like the postcards you shared and can't wait to use them! :-) Thank you so much for sharing!
Response: Oh, I'm so happy you enjoyed the letter and what I included. I got a big package full of stickers from washi kingdom yesterday and I'm soooo excited about them. 35 going on 6! ðŸ˜‚ðŸ’Œ Now I'm off to drink my first coffee of the day â˜•ï¸ðŸ˜„
Comment: Hi Rori! It's NEVER too early for Halloween! There's a Christmas in July, right? Why not Halloween (love the card ;+) Love all the cards you sent . . I'm particularly fond of Jetoy and PeeWee Herman cards! My son, Dan, loved PeeWee when he was very young and called him, 'Pelwee Horman'! I will always remember that so this card is special to me. Thanks for the great selection.
Response: Oh, I'm so thrilled to read this! I went back and forth about including the PeeWee postcard. I'm so happy I decided to send it and that it is meaningful for you. Your feedback made my day ðŸ˜˜ðŸ’Œ
Comment: Thank you for joining this swap.
I would give you extra hearts if I could.
The way the tea was packed, the way the envelope was decorated, the postage stamps, all special. Thank you VERY much.
Response: Oh I'm so happy you enjoyed what I sent! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ðŸ’ŒðŸ’–
Comment: Thank you for for sharing your thoughts with me! To answer some of your questions: I think its only just decided to be summer here, Tacoma is ok, Olympia & Seattle are more interesting, I like Micron pens, but I haven't tried Stahilo pens. Have a great summer!
Response: Thank you! I've been to Seattle once and it was lovely. ðŸ’–
Comment: What a really fun assortment of high quality postcards! Hard to choose, but I think my favorites are the subway map, scientist Madame Curie and of course darling Hello Kitty! Fun Jimi Hendrix postage, too. Many thanks.
Response: Hooray! So glad you like them. I had a blast putting that selection together for you â˜ºï¸ðŸ’–
Comment: What a nice variety of items. Post card, tags and stickers. Sure was nice to open this up after I got home last night from being away for 12 days. Hope to see you in future swaps. Have a great week.
Response: I'm so glad you like what I sent â˜ºï¸ðŸ’–
Comment: I got a delivery notice yesterday and I was wondering what in the world it could be. So my partner went to the post office while I was at my volunteering and I had this amazing package awaiting my return. The first thing I saw when I opened it was the Star Wars post card. Very fitting I received it today - May the Fourth be with you too ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚. Then I dug through the pretty packing paper for the goodie bag of wonderfulness. It was such a delight to look through all the items you sent me. That fabric tape is really cool! I've seen it before but have never used it - I'm excited to try it out. I love the stickers, washi and card as well but that cat paper is the best. I admit I am partial to kitties ever since my partner brought 2 home one day ðŸ˜»ðŸ˜º. Thank you for the extremely thoughtful package! I will take great pleasure in using it all... ðŸ’“ðŸ’“ðŸ’“
Response: Hooray!! I'm so glad you liked this swap. And what excellent timing ðŸ’–
Comment: Way to make me look bad, Rori. I have to rate you for a swap I haven't even sent yet. HAAA! Okay but seriously. I approve heartily of your plan to keep your baby fever under control by holding other peoples' babies. Then you can give them back and go happily to bed, secure in the knowledge that at least one person in your group of friends will be sleeping through the night. (Spoiler: IT'S YOU) xoxoxo
Response: Hahaha!! Thank you. I do LOVE sleep. ðŸ˜Šâ¤
Comment: Help Rori,
Thank you for your very cute Easter Pocket Letter you created for me. I do like the gold Easter bunnies you used on the front of the Pocket Letter. I also appreciate the goodies you sent along with the Pocket Letter. Have a great weekend!
Response: I'm so glad you like the bunnies. I hope you enjoy the goodies too. :)
Comment: Thanks for the great little "getting to know you" swap! I love the postcards and the notecards are so cute. You must have been over the moon when Michael's came out with all that cute Unicorn and Mermaid washi and craft stuff. I know I was!
Response: YES!! I got the last two sets of it in Dallas - one for me and one for a friend's daughter. Love all the unicorn things! So glad you enjoyed what I sent ðŸŒˆðŸ¦„
Comment: Wow-what an amazing package of goodies! Thank you so, so much for the notecards, washi rolls, marker, and the coolest pen ever (vitamin bullpen!) You made my day! â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Response: Hooray!! I love that what I sent made your day. It was really fun putting this together for you. â˜ºï¸ðŸ’–ðŸŽ‰ðŸŽ‰
Comment: Hi Rori! Thank you for the nice note. I enjoyed reading it. Hopefully, things will start going your way real soon. A New Year is just around the corner! Thank you for the note paper too! I do enjoy writing letters :) Happy holidays!
Response: Thank you for your kind words. Wishing you a wonderful 2017 ðŸ’–
Comment: I LOVE what you wrote on this postcard, Rori. I had to laugh when I read it. So thank you!!! :-) The postcard image, though, has me befuddled. "Animals on the Underground" makes sense in theory, but there's no explanation to accompany the image. So did Underground Personnel chase a group of animals along the marked path? Or. . .??? Anyway, thank you for sharing! And I hope your brownies were delicious! (I should make brownies. . .Mmmm. . .brownies.) :-)
Response: Hahaha! I have the same questions about those PCs. ðŸ˜†
Comment: Thanks for all the great stuff you've been sending this month, esp. the nice letter and the Halloween card with all the goodies. Hope your boy's party was a success. We had a party for my dad who turned 80 the same day. Good luck with all the holiday madness coming up!
Response: You're welcome. I am so glad you enjoyed the mail. This was such a fun swap, wasn't it? Miles had a wonderful birthday/Halloween. He is a happy little pumpkin ðŸŽƒâ¤ï¸
Comment: I always enjoy getting swaps from you, and I love your letters. :) Thank you for making me a pocket letter and sending pretty papers my way!. I look forward to using them to write little notes to my nieces and nephew. p.s. I liked the washi and other decorations on your envelope so much that I had a hard time deciding how to open it :)
Response: Yay!! I'm so glad you enjoyed what I sent. It was fun putting a pocket letter together for you. ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thank you ever so much for the very cool postcards! I especially love the one for Boundin'. That is arguably my most favorite Disney-Pixar short! The coloring postcard also looks fun, and the bookmark and stickers are great, too! Thank you for this wonderful piece of Happy Mail! :-)
Response: You're welcome. I'm so happy that you like what I sent. Yay!! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Your notecard finally arrived! Thank you very much for it, it was fun to read about your pets, They sound lovely! I'd love to have birds but I don't think that would work well here, already have a dog and four cats!
Response: Yay!! So glad it finally arrived. I adore cats but they make my eyes swell shut and itch. Hope you're having a lovely day. :)
Comment: I love the minion ribbon!!! So cute =D I can relate to the laundry. It is never-ending...I struggle with getting it put away more than washing it though lol. I hope you are having a good week and that the laundry fairy visits both of us =]
Response: That laundry fairy needs to come today. I've got three loads done that need to be put away and two more waiting to be done. Gah! ðŸ˜†
Comment: Well, this sure put a smile on my face! It was lovely reading about your family's christmas. Mine was pretty quiet, but my partner visited from Seattle, so that was pretty great. Hope the new year's treating you well!
Response: Thank you! I hope you're having a nice 2016 so far!
Comment: Thank you for such a delightful mix of surprises! I'm excited to use the note papers, tags, and Halloween-y treat bags, and I've got to say those are just the prettiest flower stickers I've seen in a long time. I love them! Thanks again, Rori! â™¥
Response: Oh I'm so happy you liked them! :) You're very welcome. Have a nice weekend!
Comment: Thank you for another delightful swap! I absolutely love that you used the colors of my planner for inspiration--that's so clever and thoughtful! :) Such beautiful things, I'm excited to use them. â™¥
Response: Yay! So happy you enjoyed them. I really need to start working on my 2016 planner before December gets away from me!
Comment: I love your letter (and look forward to your dairy-free recipe) :) That ocean stationery is adorable!
I went up north to visit my mom and binge-watched OITNB, too. I always watch the whole season with her. :) Thanks for all the special little goodies you included for me; I've used some already! Also, I LOVE your colorful polka-dotted envelopes and the cute pandas. Thanks again for the happy happy mail! â™¥
Response: I'm so happy you liked what I sent! I'll get that recipe to you soon. ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Fun stuff -- thank you so much Rori. Sorry for the later than usual rate. I feel like "my dog ate my homework", he seems to be my excuse -- Milan is requiring a major bit of my attention so I am adjusting and some things get set aside for yet another dog interruption (or crash -- he's large, can reach everything & is only a puppy). Is there such a malady as dog-inspired ADD -- I may have it. Have a wonderful week!
Response: You're welcome. Totally understand! Lol. Hope you're having a lovely week. ðŸ˜Š
Comment: You were so generous with this package and I just love everything you sent! Congratulations on your upcoming arrival! How exciting! I personally think 3 is the perfect number ;) Take care and thank you so much!
Response: Yay!! I'm so glad you like what I included. And, thank you!! We are very excited. :)
Comment: It's kind of strange that you want to live in the PNW -- I moved from Texas to live here (well, my parents did and dragged me along). It's beautiful, but it sure is cold~ Thanks for the interesting PC!
Response: I prefer the cold so it would probably be awesome. It was 81 here yesterday. Crazy winter! Lol. :)
Comment: Fabulous doodles! :-) This is the cutest hand drawn, doodles envelope I've received in awhile. All the little images are great, but I'm fond of the rabbit and tree. Or maybe the sun and rainbow. :-) Thank you also for all the goodies you included - everything was excellent! :-)
Response: Hooray!! I'm so glad you liked it. It was really fun to put together. ðŸ˜„
Comment: The Owl in the card is adorable.. Thank you so much.. I love it... It took quite a while for me to receive this, I don't know why.. I received all three cards for this swap just yesterday :O But I got it and I like it a lot.. Hope to swap with you again.. :D
Response: Wow! Maybe it got stuck in customs for a while. Glad it finally arrived! And I'm glad you like it. ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Merry Christmas! ðŸŽ„ (Somehow it made it all the way here without a stamp on it! There was even a note on it saying "return to sender for postage". Maybe they were feeling Christmasy. ðŸ˜‰)
Response: Omg. That is so weird! The stamp must have come off somehow. It was a Rudolph stamp. I mailed a ton that day. I wonder if it got stuck to another envie in the stack... Sorry it didn't have the cute stamp it should have. ðŸ˜³
Comment: Wow you made it hard, none of them are obvious. Here it goes:1. You spent a semester in France. 2. Your favorite chore is dishes. 3. You were un-employed for 18 months. 4. The roof of your car leaks. 5. David Copperfield made you disappear. I am probably way off, sorry. Congrats on your baby girl!!!!
Response: Thank you!! You're right about dishes and France. The rest are true! I'm trying to remember what else I made up... We only have two birds and one dog. I think I said we have three dogs...
Comment: Thank you for your wonderful letter ! I loved all the cute stickers you used and like me you don't have a favourite colour but love all ! The little pieces of paper you sent where so cute as well ! I hope your son had a wonderful birthday.
Response: Thank you! He had a great birthday and party. :) I'm so glad you enjoyed the letter.
Comment: Thank you for sharing your story, it shows your amazing love and strength. I think writing can be very therapeutic and deeply healing. This is the time for remembrance, I hope to do more of these kinds of swaps :)
Response: Thank you so much. I agree. Writing has been very therapeutic for me. :)
Comment: OH, this swap is a very difficult one.. Thank you so much for a fabulous wrapped gift! Oh my, I have still to wait TWO months to open it. That is difficult indeed :) But I am in love with the circus-stamps - that helps :) EDIT: Thank you so much for the wonderful and profile-based gifts! Have a wonderful 2015!
Response: It's difficult for me too! Lol. But Christmas is going to be so fun!!
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter and cute stickers - love them. I can highly recommend both Washington and Oregon. There are desert areas, and rainy areas in both states. Spokane is very nice weather-wise and we loved living in Portland too. take care, darla
Response: Hooray! So glad you love the stickers. Thank you for the tips. Fingers crossed we can move up there in the next few years. :)
Comment: I'm so sorry about all this hassle. Thanks for re-sending even though they wouldn't deliver because of mailbox location. I appreciate your effort in getting me my swap. My landlords are working on getting it moved for me.
Response: Glad they're moving it for you! Hope your mail situation improves soon. :)
Comment: Rori, thank you so much for joining my swap and for the lovely photo book you sent me. I enjoyed looking through your photographs and I especially enjoyed the book-ended cloud photos. I adore clouds and your two clouds photos are beautiful. Dallas seems like a nice place - very colorful and moody. To answer your question, Yes! I love living in the Pacific Northwest. There is so much beauty here and it's ok to be weird. What more could you ask for? :) I definitely support the idea that you should live in the Pacific Northwest at least once in your life. :) Good luck with the minimalist projects! Take care, Sasha
Response: You're welcome! Thank YOU for hosting such an awesome swap. I loved it. :)
Comment: love all of the stickers. the baby shower sounds so cute, good luck with it. i'm going to be arranging one later this year for 1 of my managers, i've never done it before so i'm quite nervous!
Response: Yay!! I'm so glad you love them! Good luck with the shower. I know you'll do great. :) Do you use Pinterest? They have links to some really awesome shower ideas.
Comment: hi Rori, you're name sounds familiar and I looked back on all of my swaps and we never swapped before. do you sew? i am in 2 groups crazy little projects and candy castle patterns. are you participating in these sewing challenges?
I had fun reading your facts. I'm 61 so it was a long letter to write and have my swap partner read. lol thanks for writing ot me and I will write back soon. kathleen
Response: I can sew but I haven't in four or five years. No sewing challenge swaps for me! :) Thank you for the heart! And I look forward to hearing from you.
Comment: This is a great package ~ full of all kinds of fun goodies! I am enjoying it very much.. . . . . . In case you are wondering why the rating took so long its because I just got the package today. It wasn't in my PO box last week or the week before. Wonder where they were hiding it!
Response: Oh I'm glad it found its way home!! And I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :) Yay!

Response: Thank you! It has been a fun and busy weekend so far. :)
Comment: Hi! I got your letter last week so I'm really sorry about the late rating. Your year sounded lovely! I'd forgotten what it's like when your kids are babies and everything is new. Miles sounds adorable! Thanks so much for all the little extras you sent me. All of them were amazing. Hope 2014 is a great year for you too.
Comment: OMG!!!! I just got your package. Love everything. Especially all the ETSY goodies!!!!!! My 1st time receiving things from etsy. I would be the luckiest person in the world to be partnered with you again! A million gazillion hearts!!!!!
Response: Hooray! I'm so glad you liked it. It was super fun putting together your package. I love Etsy too! :)
Comment: Thank you...life is a daring adventure! I opened all my swap mail early because I will still be in the Dominican Republic on my birthday! On an adventure, with daughter and grandson! Happy birthday to you also.
Comment: Hello Rori,
Thank you for the 3 postcards you sent me for this swap. I liked all the postcards but my favorite one is the one entitled, "Pantone 535." I will add these to my Postcard Collection.
Response: You're welcome! So glad you like them. :)
Comment: Thank you for your letter!! I don't think that's silly at all, I can't imagine being vegan in Texas. It's really easy on the West Coast, no comparision :) and I agree, narwhals are amazing. You must have heard the song....
Response: You're welcome! I need to live on the West Coast for so many reasons... :)
Comment: Ooooo thank you for the lovely postCard. Oh arent pumpkin patches the best pictures ever. And "aint" that the best feeling when you beat the rain. Its like you cheat life, right? Oh and isnt someOne special? Brewed coffee too. Woo Hoo! oxo, KiT
Response: You're welcome! Exactly! It was an awesome day. :)
Comment: Thank you for the stocking gift for October. I am going to save it for Christmas morning. Although, I have to wonder what it is til then:) I opened it today. It was tucked away and I forgot it on Christmas day. Very nice, thanks!
Comment: That chair on your PC does not look so comfortable. But me having no taste in decorating, I am guessing it is one of your pieces of furniture that just looks good. LOL
I hope you get some rest. Kiss the baby for me. What is his costume for Halloween? Happy Fall Mailings, ellie
Response: Haha! I agree. There's a whole series of uncomfortable looking chairs in that PC set. I stick to squishy furniture myself. :)
Miles is going to be an ewok for Halloween. So cute! Happy swapping!
Comment: Hello Rori,
Thank you for the 3 postcards you sent me for the Postcard Pick-me-Up #13. All of them will be a nice addition to my postcard collection. Happy Postcard Swapping!!!
P.S. Thank you for the Fringe sticker. I am sorry the show is no longer is on TV.
Response: Yes, me too. We can always hope for a movie someday. If they can get all the cast together for it. :)
Comment: I really really loved the extra Sanrio stationary you sent! I'm obsessed with it! We'll see if I'll ever be able to use it, haha! I also thought the magazine cut outs were exceptional, and I cannot wait to use them! Thanks a ton!
Response: So glad you loved the Sanrio stuff. I'm also obsessed, so I totally understand. :)
Comment: Hello Rori,
Thank you for the wonderful postcards you sent to choose from for this swap. I was so excited about what you sent that I chose almost all the postcards. I will look forward to adding some wonderful postcards so the next swapper will want to choose a lot of postcards again. Thank you for the ribbon you sent me as well. The postcards I chose will be a great addition to my collection.
Response: Yay! So glad you liked most of the cards. :)
