Response: Thank you very much for your kind rating and nice words :) I am so glad you enjoyed the PC and this swap. I always put an effort to stock on the cutest post stamps as we can find nice limited collections over here. I hope you get to visit Seattle in the near future. You are so lucky to live in such a nice place as Canada. Summer is coming, enjoy it as much as you can. Happy Swapping to you !

I'd LOVE to receive your answer ! :) let me know if you need my address or any information.

Comment: When i opened the envelope I thought the memo you wrote me was the handlettering because your handwriting is so beautiful! So I was blown away by the actual handlettering. A beautiful quote and a beautiful font.
Response: Wow thanks a lot for your nice words ! it touches me ! especially as I just started handlettering and it was my first swap in this theme. hope to swap with you again soon ! thanks for the heart <3
Comment: Thank you this pocket letter is an amazing creative swap!! Of course I will write back!!
Response: Thank you very much for the rating. <3 Im so glad you liked it and I really appreciate your kindness. I did my best for this first Pocket Letter and hope to do more in the future :) I really enjoyed putting it together and taking the time to create something new.
Comment: I'm not sure how I should rate. Your quote is very neatly written, thank you for that :) And I love the bunny postage stamp! But I don't understand why your letter is stamped March 13, when the deadline for this swap was Feb 14. However, you have marked it as sent already on Feb 11, so I suppose it's just some weird incident by the postal service. Thank you for this swap :)
Response: Hi there, I am not sure if it was due to some disorganization on my side or indeed from the post office. If due to me, I apologize for the delay and I appreciate your honest rating.
I hope you enjoyed this swap overall (for its content especially) .
Cheers & Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you for the nice letter on the cute stationary.
My wife and I like to travel too. We have been to Germany & Austria and to England. Mostly, we take road trips around our own country. Now that I'm retired and she has cut her hours back, we hope to travel more.
Response: Hi there, thank you for your comment and rating. This is really kind to take the time.
Im glad to hear you visited Europe, I hope you enjoyed your time there. and I totally understand why you take road trips in your own country mostly, as you live in a beautiful place and extended country with diverse natural wonders. You are very lucky. Greetings to your wife !
Comment: Hello again :D Actually, we are penpals, I sent you a letter a while ago, but now I think it has never arrived! So, I will have to re send another one! So sad that it got lost > < Thank you for the pokemon letter and Happy Swapping!! You'll hear from me soon!
Response: Hi Ellen :) I realised after sending my pokemon letter swap that I still had to catchup some answers from letters sitting in my box of "letters to reply to". And I already replied to your last letter separately. You will receive it soon. <3 Please wait for it before replying to the pokemon letter ^__^ thank you for your kind rating. I enjoy a lot being your penpal !!! ***
Comment: OMG, can I give you more and more hearts? <3 I adored the writing paper you sent to me and I loved reading your words! Please expect an answer from me! I'm traveling till 18th February, therefore I cannot promise you an immediate reply, but I'll surely write back! :)
Response: Your rating really made my day. Im so happy you loved all the things I sent. <3 and cant wait for your reply :) have a beautiful day !
Comment: Hi Issa! I loved your replies to the questions in the swap as I now have two new authors to try - thankyou! I also love Young Sheldon and am a fan of The Big Bang Theory as well. I hope you get the house you crave. In Australia home ownership is much higher, despite all the grumbles about unaffordability. I am very boring when it comes to wearing perfume: I wear only one, Opium by YSL, and have done for years. I just love the smell of it! Good luck with your planned trips, too, they sound fantastic and you are sure to enjoy them, having researched them so well. Trips are great to look forward to! Thanks for being my partner in this swap, I really appreciated you taking the time to write such thoughtful answers! All the best, Tracy.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind rating and your answers. I enjoyed reading your awesome rating. hope to swap with you again soon ! All the best to You !

Response: Hiii <3 thank you for your rating, and I am looking forward to your answer !! (I wrote you a private message with my address) le met know if you have it <3

Comment: Salut Isaa, j'ai bien reçu ta lettre et t'en remercie! Mon fils et moi avons eu un coup de coeur en découvrant ton papier à lettres Totoro et tous les petits détails kawaii. J'étais à Morges il y a un peu plus d'une semaine pour l'expo David Lynch au musée Alexis Forel: magnifique endroit! Je te réponds bientôt, bises
Response: Merci beaucoup pour ton super rating. Je suis super contente que vous ayez reconnu et apprécié le papier à lettre Totoro :) N'hésitez pas la prochaine fois que vous passez à Morges, si c'est en weekend je serai ravie de prendre un petit café avec vous.
Comment: Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. I loved your envelope & all the wonderful goodies & candy you sent me. I also really loved your letter it was very fun & personal, I feel just awful I forgot to rate you. Please forgive me I would send you a hundred hearts.
Response: thank you so much for your kind and sweet rating, makes my day :)
Comment: Thank you for your email! I loved reading it. :) I do think I have a snail mail letter to answer to you also. I will have to get organised.
Response: Ok super to know !! I thought I sent you a letter a long time ago, and didnt remeber exactly now... ^_^ So I will wait for your reply for both by email ? if more convenient to you :) thank you for the rating !!! <3
Comment: Hi dear Isaa,
I received your postcard. Thank you very much that you were very attentive to my profile and thought about my preferences in receiving postcards and British motives.. But I love receiving letters too!:) And I liked the stamp and your handwriting. You have managed to put so much info on little postcard space, that's fine!)
I wish I could learn something more about Switzerland! 😎📨🍁
Edited: Sure this was an extra special letter about Switzerland, I give a heart! Thank you!
Response: Thank you for your rating, :) and for letting me know you like to receive letters too. indeed, space is very limited on a PC and I wrote in tiny letters so I can fit the most :) I never know, if swappers who mention they like PC really enjoy or prefer to receive PC along with a letter in an envelope.... I would be happy to write you about Switzerland if you want me to send a second one. (let me know if you are looking for a penpal by PM).
Comment: Thank you for your answers. :) I do have both of the books you mentioned, and I think he has a few others too. I saw one called All About My Dog, and I think it's by the same person. Although I like the books, I tend to write too much for the little bit of space offered in the book! :) haha I hope you enjoy them, though!
Response: Thank you for your kind chatty rating <3 I cant wait to receive the books- look forward to your next swap as a host !
Comment: Thank you for your lovely letter! I enjoyed reading about you! (: Wow! What's Switzerland like? I've actually been known to confuse Switzerland and Sweden a few times T.T Thanks again and happy swapping! ~
Response: Thank you for your nice rating. I appreciate very much ! Feel free to answer the letter if you wish, and I'll tell you more about Switzerland in my next reply <3
Comment: Thank you for the very informative and wonderful swap! However, the paid postage says August 2. The send-by date was July 22.
Response: Hi there ! Thank you very much for your rating. I appreciate that you rated 5 although it was late.
Indeed I was on holidays with no access to internet. I had left all of my swaps to a friend to send it for me and he told me when I came back that he couldnt do it on time, especially because he didnt know exactly to content of each package and the post office asked him a clear list for the customs. so he waited to reach me before sending, leading to delay for a few swaps.
I apologize for this and hope to swap with you again. I am happy that the package reached you fast afterall and the content pleased you :)
Happy Swapping <3
Comment: Thank you! Will you put a bunch of your choice kawaii pics on my profile?
Response: I m so happy it finally reached you without me doing a resend !!! I was advised swiss mail can reach USA in approx. 3-4 weeks. so I am not surprised but always good when it comes faster of course. thank you for your rating and thanks you for your message. I am so happy to start a new penpalship !
Hi again about the kawaii pics, I realized the html link wasn't working from my computer. But I ll try again soon when I have a specific space to store pictures online !
