Comment: Thank you for the Peace-Love-Life... postcard! It's very uplifting which is something we all need right now. I think being positive and encouraging each other is one of the best things we can do. Stay safe and be well!
Comment: Thank You so much for the Beautiful envelopes. It’s been so cold here still and seeing the beauty of Arizona desert was a welcome sight. The Art envelope was an extra treat also. Thank you for the extra address labels too😊
Comment: Thank you for the poodle PC. I wish I was walking in the woods rather than around the near-by cemetery, seems a lot "happier" place to be, but then again, it's green and there are trees where I walk too. Take care!
Comment: Thank you so much for this amazing card, I love the message. I hope that you're teeth are feeling better! My wisdom teeth have been hurting lately so i feel your pain :( I hope you get back to eating normal and feeling like yourself again! <3

Comment: "happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open." by John Barrymore. Loved this quote. I am going to print them and cut them up into strips and place them in a jar, so I can pull one out as I need a little encouragement. blessings,
Comment: I like how you re purposed things for the envelope and made some of the inclusions Earth friendly. Since you asked yes I do like Columbo and several spoofs Peter Falk was in too especially Murder by Death.
Comment: Thank you for the envelopes, the little extras & for sharing a bit about yourself. I've tried to learn several musical instruments, but never the dulcimer or the ukelele, sounds like a very relaxing way to start. Maybe I should give one of them a try!
Comment: Hi, thank you for your card and new years wish, I wish you happy new year too! :)
I was just wondering where the stamps went, because there is just one instead of tons. ;)
Still rating a 5 though, I like the card anyway. :)
Updating my rating previous rating :)
You deserve 100 hearts at least! Thank you so much for sending me also a card of Hawaii with beautiful stamps on it! Thank you soooo much! :)
Response: OH. There is another card in the mail. I accidentally stamped the first one with some other cards, then realized my mistake. If you don't get the one with LOTS of stamps, let me know because I'll resend it.
Comment: The envelopes you sent are great! Very interesting use of materials. I also liked the envelope you sent them in and plan to take it apart to use as a pattern. My very favorite is the map envelope with the notecard decorated with a map cut out. Another idea I plan to borrow. Thank you for a really special swap!
Response: Thanks for your comment. Glad you got some new ideas. That's part of the fun of swapping.
Comment: Thank you Sue . . . I understand the heat wave issue! Glad you made the envelope because I've learned a wonderful word from it: Degunkify!!! Thank you for the inserts as well. I especially love tags!
Comment: Thanks so much for this cute assortment of envelopes! The labels were a thoughtful addition! UPDATE: Got the "lost" one yesterday! it sure took its sweet time! Love the map of England, especially!
Response: Hmm. I sent this TWICE. I will PM you to confirm your mailing address.
Comment: Ah ha! Your envelope came today - and what a great job you did with it! The weaving was so cool and must have taken a lot of time and effort - thank you! :) I liked the cool stamps you used, and thanks also for the stamps you included inside, as well as the note card and postcard! :) Thanks again!
Response: The weaving was more complicated than I expected, but a worthwhile experiment. So many patterns. Now I'm collecting the envelope innards...
Comment: Incredible card -- just amazing how detailed her work is. I have seen some wonderful mosaics in Italy, but this beats all others. Would love to see some "in person" ! Thanks a bunch, and happy swapping!
Comment: Oh my gosh, thank you so much for this extra huge package! I was expecting a portly business envelope, so getting a box in the mail was really exciting. I just spent the past hour going through everything in the envelope, and you included a lot of fun, awesome things. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Your state cookie is the Toll House Coockie? I knew it is in my house!! Thank you. The heart box hasn't been working for me tonight. I'm checking into this and will update your rating when I can find out why this is happening.
Comment: Really special card -- we have been to Crater Lake i the summer but never in the winter, as my husband was born and raised in Salem and we used to go up that way a lot to visit his mom. We haven't been as often since she moved in with us 5 years ago, although his brother still lives in Portland. Thanks again, nad happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the nice card of Mt Hood! Perhaps you'll make it back there on a clearer day to see the top. It was pretty foggy here this morning, but the only consequence was that I couldn't see any of the factories across the harbor... no complaints there! :]
Comment: What a wonderful selection of postcards, I loved everyone of them, thank you so, so much! I actually grew up outside of Boston but don't have hardly any since I didn't collect them then. These are a very treasured addition to my collection. The envelope was great too, did you make it? Anna
Comment: What a great mix of postcards! Each one is so different and fun! And the "I Love Lucy" stamp was a fantastic episode! I grew up watching those in re-runs, along with Gilligan's Island and others. THANKS A MILLION!
Comment: Thank you sooooo much, it's gorgeous!! I got it Saturday but thought it was from the Mega swap, heh! I've been drooling over it ever since :P Today I got the Mega swap card (which I loooove tooo), you kick so much butt!!
Comment: oooohhhhh they are so cute. I'm going to China in september and then we are also going to watch pandas. I love them. My mailbox was really full today. I had 6 pc's of this swap and also some other ones. You all made my day!!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for taking the extra time and effort to find me some maps from another state. Well, country in this case! =) I really appreciate that! Thank you for the great maps!!! I didn't have this one of the cape and definitely didn't have the maps of Portugal either. Thanks again!!
Comment: I appreciate your trying new things: watercolors, envelopes, stickers. I didn't even realize the words were on a clear sticker. Cool- where do you get them? And thanks for the newsy note- it's great when people share a little bit about the creative process and themselves. Hugs**
Comment: update: June 30--- Thank you!! Very late, but you sure made up for it. Thank you for coming through on the swap and also for the extras that you included! I especially like the ATC that you sent along and the note that you wrote. :)
Response: yes, i am hopelessly behind. i will send it, to restore my integrity, even if not my rating. sorry to disappoint with an inexcuseable delay. (6/16)
Thank you for the wonderful card. I loved the message you wrote and you're so right. I keep struggling with my happiness and every time I have to stop and remind myself that I have to do it, because no one else is responsible for it. Your new friend Bob
Comment: Love your blog - I bookmarked it! I really liked a lot of your entries. What's in your wallet - What's in your mind was a good one. The practice of buddhism in this day and age is very hard. There are so many influences around to falter you thinking. I guess that's the challenge though!
Thanks for sharing your inspiring blog.
Comment: your altered postcard made me laugh out loud...it is still cracking me up! Love it! Thank you for the sweet extras and all in a very pretty handmade envelope. And - the zentangle atc is very neat - i have never seen one in person and was curious about the swaps... very neat! Thank you!
