Comment: Hi Lindsey! Thanks SO SO SO much for this very lovely swap!!! It was an absolute pleasure going through all the beautiful goodies so neatly packaged in little envies and bags. I seriously love EVERYTHING and appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity! I will be having SO MUCH FUN using all of it. The mini floral DIY pocket/envie is so adorable, and the patterned papers with the pumpkins and autumn leaves are definitely getting me in the mood for Fall :) Thanks again for putting together an incredibly wonderful swap - it was a feast for the eyes and my creativity! Always happy to swap with you, Lindsey, and hope to do another one with you again soon :) Stay healthy and safe!!!
Comment: Hi Lindsey! Your swap arrived and I absolutely love everything! We definitely have similar aesthetics :) Thanks for sending such a wonderful variety of goodies (including the generous amount of Dolce Vita stickers), I will enjoy using every single thing :) Let me know if you're ever up for another swap! Stay safe and healthy!
Response: Hi Mary, I'm so glad you liked everything I included. I agree that our crafty interests are quite similar. I will for sure contact you sometime to do another swap - take care and enjoy the rest of the summer!
Comment: Thank you for the box of goodies! I guess it came Wednesday, but when I went to the apartment office to pick it up, they had closed early- so it was held hostage till they re-opened this morning lol I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and that your Christmas is wonderful!
Response: No worries! Thank you so much for doing the swap with me, I hope you enjoyed what I sent! Have a lovely holiday season!
Comment: I envy you - you get to see the leaves change color in the Fall. In Ohio where I grew up it was like that, so beautiful. But here in Texas it is not the same. Most trees are still green, or dropping dead, brown leaves because it's so HOT! But later in the season we will often see the foliage change. More subtle, but still lovely. Thanks for the PC!
Response: So glad you enjoyed the PC! I hope you’ll get to see a bit of fall color by you this season. Thanks for joining my swap!!
Comment: So much fun stuff! Thanks for doing this one last swap with me before your school started. I would like to try penpaling with you :) I think we have a lot in common.
Response: Hi! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the items I sent you!! Would love to be penpals - if you're up for it feel free to send me a private message, that way we can see what we'd like to do! I can't wait to be able to send more to you!!!
Comment: Thank you for the great items! The notecard is beautiful and I ALWAYS love unused stamps!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked the notecard and stamps! I have a big stash of vintage postage so I am trying to include some in swaps whenever I can. Anyway you're very welcome! Thanks for the heart it's always appreciated!
Comment: Hey Michigander! I was just up there for a week on Lake Erie and we could not believe how much hotter it was than in Georgia! I hope you get some cool breezes soon. Thank you for this gorgeous card and stamps, very very cool!
Response: Hello! Yes it was very very hot and humid for a while! Luckily as of right now it has cooled down, but it won't be this way for long so I am trying to enjoy it while it lasts! I am glad that you enjoyed the PC with the pretty stamps, thank you for the heart!
Comment: You're crazy generous! That was WAY more than 2 ounces worth, you crazy girl 😋 Thank you SO much for all of the awesome stickers. I'd absolutely love to swap again soon, perhaps washi or journal cards? I have a disturbing amount of both Haha.
Response: You’re so welcome! I hope you’ll be able to use them — like I said I have way too many, so I wanted to make it worth your while! I would love to swap with you again soon!! feel free to PM me if you’d like!!
Comment: Thank you for the Chicago card. I sometimes miss living close to drive downtown, but absolutely do not miss the humid summers and harsh winters.
Response: Glad you enjoyed the Chicago card - I know exactly what you're talking about in terms of the humid summers & harsh winters!! I try to enjoy it as much as I can hahah. Also thanks for the heart! It's much appreciated!
Comment: Hi Lindsey! We did have a great time on vacation but of course it went by way too quickly - sigh! Going away this weekend for a Girl's trip - I love traveling! Thank you for the sweet comment about the family - they are pretty awesome, most of the time! LOL! Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Lovely patterned card! Thanks! I had nearly the perfect day - knitting & reading at my local coffeeshop while my kids were at camp. Lunch & bubble tea at one of my favorite spots. A bit of thrift store shopping and a big soft pretzel! What more can a girl ask for on a Friday!
Comment: Thank you for the cannon ball tree postcard. I got to see one when I was in Hawaii. So cool! I’m glad to hear you grow African Violets. So many people are scared of them and they are so easy to care for.
Response: so happy you liked it! thanks for the heart
Comment: i so agree how shockingly short spring season is,
with June already poking into the calendar ~ thank
you for the delightfully strange postcard: a lot
of awe & wonderment in that small mailbox surprise!
keep looking forward to more fun swaps here ...
Comment: Hi Lindsey -- thanks for the Michigan map card. I have assorted relative there, so I get up that way now and then. Last trip was a wedding in Marquette. Best, Al
Response: Hi Al! I am very happy that you liked the map card - it had been in my collection for a while as I didn't want to part with it, I think it's such a cool postcard! I'm glad you liked it! And wow! Marquette is way more north than where I live! But I would like to get up there some day, thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you Lindsey, I love the floral and polka dots! That's very nice paper. The bonus postcard is lovey ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: Hello! I am very glad that you liked the handmade envies, I am still quite new at making them so I was a bit nervous that no one would like them, but I think they turned out good! And yes - the paper is the Martha Stewart brand from Michael's craft store, I thought it would hold up well in the mail!
Again I'm so so happy that you enjoyed the envelopes, and the postcard too! Thank you for the rating and heart as well, they're much appreciated!
Comment: Thank you for the nice PC. The Canna is my mom's favorite flower. Wow 26 it hardly ever gets that cold here in Texas. Yesterday it was in the 80s.
Response: You're very welcome. I am so glad that you liked it! I am jealous of you with that weather! Although today here in Michigan it is in the mid 50's - people are walking around with shorts and no jackets on! As soon as it hits above 45 degrees in Michigan you would think it was summer hahah!
Comment: What a sweet swapper this is! Thank you so much my friend and I cannot wait to go through everything! It was the perfect thing to get on this snowy cold day. Thank you again for being understanding and making sure I was happy with what you sent. If the other ever shows up, I will let you know. <3 Thank you again.
Response: AHH thank you so much for this lovely message and thank you for the heart!! I am so happy that you enjoyed what I sent, and hopefully it made your day a little better! it’s quite snowy here as well!! thanks again!
Comment: I am shocked that this is your de-stashing swap! I love everything you sent and am thrilled! Your trash is most definitely my treasure! Thank you so much!
Response: ahh I'm so glad you like what I sent! and yes I have collected so many things, I was happy to send you things that I knew someone could use!! I'm so happy to know that you are happy! Thanks for the heart!! and also - cool to know there's someone else around my age on here, i turn 19 in a few months! have a wonderful day and thanks again!
Comment: Your envelope arrived safely today...I'm saving it to open on Christmas morning, thanks for everything!
I absolutely love everything that you sent, you really got my vibe!!! Thanks again and Merry Christmas!!!
Response: i’m glad it arrived safely to you!! hopefully you will

Comment: Thanks for the nine nosy newts and your answer to the prompt. I haven't been to Portland, Oregon yet, but I have some swap friends who live in the area...maybe, that's reason enough to visit! :-)
Response: i’m glad you liked it!! yes the PNW is wonderful to visit, thanks for the heart!
Comment: Lindsey thank you so much for the beautiful letter and card. Like your town, I grew up in Kentville, NS and every year we have a HUGE festival .....Apple Blossom Festival, which is one of the largest in the nation. I share your feelings about it however, I moved away many years ago, and now I'd love to go back for one- just like the tourists do lol. Wishing you the best in your studies!
Response: Tanya!! I’m so happy you enjoyed what I sent you! An apple blossom festival?? How cool!! I would probably have the same feelings if I ever move away from holland... anyway thank you so much for your kind words and the heart! Have a wonderful day
Comment: Thank you so much for such a generous swap. I have to apologize, I had written out a long thank you mentioning the specific items that were my favorites, but I was doing a whole bunch of those, since I just moved, and before saving, hit a button combo unintentionally that just erased all that. I hit Ctrl+Z but then it just exited me out without saving. Grr! But trust me, it was a glowing report of things much loved, thank you!
Response: apologies for the very very late response — i appreciate the nice comment!! i’m so very glad you liked everything i sent!
Comment: Thank you so much for all of the fun goodies. I was so excited to get mail from you! We lived in the Holland area for a long time. Our kids graduated from Hamilton HS. Are you going to Hope?
Response: hi! you’re very welcome!! and yes I am! I actually have lived here my whole life but hope is my dream school! I’m glad that you liked what I sent you and it’s so cool you used to live around here! have a good day!!
Comment: A girl after my own heart! Thanks very much, Lindsey -- I love the envelope and the cards! That Michigan light house map card is so totally cool--one of my favorite cards received this year. My husband and I want to do a Michigan trip and visit as many lighthouses as we can-living in Denver I think we are about as far from a lighthouse as anyone in the U.S. and we really love them. Will send you an IM about P & P - will send a friend request also. thanks again! Carol
Response: hi carol!! thanks for the wonderful feedback! i’m so glad you liked the cards. also thanks for the lovely message, i will for sure send a response back as soon as i find time to really sit down and write! i’m spending time with my family today so most likely tomorrow! anyway, thank you again! it was so kind of you to take the time to reach out to me!! have a great day!!
