Comment: Love love LOVE the card you've chosen for me for this swap! Reading is great! I've actually read a whole lot of books myself again. Haven't done so ever since I got kids.. Currently addicted to The Witcher series and on my last book now. I think I'll fall into a black hole soon. Yikes! Stay safe <3
Comment: Danke schön fur Ihre Karte! Und fur eine schöne Motto! Thank you for writing in German, it's such a good way to learn more! :) Actually, I received all three postcards for this swap today, that's a first :)
Comment: Hey Joana, I was confused to come on here and found that I had yet to rate you, not sure what I did? It was lovely to read your list and even more the lovely surprise to receive the postcard with the extra question 3. All lovely places and gorgeous postcard too. Thank you.
Comment: Thank you for your e-mail. Yes, I’m finding that I’m using news websites more than before too. I also like walking and creative challenges. I’m currently planning a walking and hiking plan for when the lockdown eases.
Comment: Hello! Thank you for your card and bookmark. I loved reading your answers to them. Your upbeat-ness was a ray of sunshine waiting for me.
The last book I finished was "My Sister, The Serial Killer" by Oyinkan Braithwaite - check it out, it's fantastic. Really humourous to say it's about a woman who keeps killing her boyfriends.
I hope you're staying safe and positive.
Comment: Thanks for your email, I initially missed it as it had gone into junk mail. I loved reading your list and my daughter would very much agree with you on apple crumble and custard a firm family favourite! I also enjoyed a Discovery of Witches. Have a good Easter Weekend.
Comment: Das sind wundervolle Aussichten! Ich hoffe meine Augen bleiben gut genug, dass ich nicht so ins Buch kriechen muss, aber der Lesenteil - dafür kann ich mich begeistern! Vielen Dank für die wundervolle Karte!
Comment: This filled envie is really worth a HEART!!
Thank you very much.
What a good idea to use old sewing pattern paper. Lovely bookmarks. Last year I saw the film: The Guernsey Literary and potato peel pie society. Very impressive.
The postcard is great too.
Thak you for sending this present, I hope to receive more swaps from you.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely art illustrated postcard - I wonder what she is thinking. I too enjoy historical fiction along with crime and occasionally dipping into fantasy. Currently reading The Subtle Knife which is in the fantasy genre. I first read the book twenty years ago and I am enjoying it again.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome card and your beautiful note!! I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season - enjoy all the beauty surrounding you!! And thanks for the pretty postcard too : )
Comment: Thanks so much for for the absolutely beautifully decorated envelope. I really love how you decorated it. It was a pleasure to find it in my letter box today. Also thanks for the lovely goodies you put inside for me. Thanks again :)
Comment: Thank you, Joana, I love the postcard even though I've never seen the Jacques Tati film from which the image comes.I was hoping my library would have it. They have a great collection of classic films , but sadly their DVD of Tati's short fims doesn't include "the School for Postmen." I have two bikes myself (one folds up for easy transport), but like you, I prefer to walk most of the time!
Comment: How unique! All those little booklets of books! Our book stores use to give away tiny little preview booklets but they stopped that. I always felt giddy with a little novel booklet in my purse to read whenever!! Thanks again!!
Comment: Thank you for the Elsa Beskow postcard, I love her illustrations and this is my first. I would love to collect all 12 months. Summer in Sweden sounds lovely, I got to go home to Scotland and Glencoe was just stunning.
Comment: Dear Joana, nice to hear from you again:)) thank you for the postcard that I actually love! And travelling... obsession... isn´t it? I think my farthest was Uruquay - such a great place and not full of turists. Enjoy summer!
Comment: I love your postcard, such a beautiful picture and the sparkly mint green texture is so different to anything I have ever received on a postcard before. I like the quote, I've had this in a few swaps, I think something is trying to tell me to wander, he he. Thank you. Em. x
Comment: Vielen lieben Dank für die schöne Karte!! Petterson und Findus ist ein toller Klassiker, wobei mein kleiner Bruder die damals noch lieber mochte ich und ich ihm die Bücher dann regelmäßig vorgelesen habe. Danke (:
Comment: I love this postcard! I remember that we watched some of it in class in high school; although I can't think of which class it was. I was scared of birds for several days afterword! I definitely need to watch it in it's entirety. Thanx again!
Comment: Thanks ever so much for the fun postcard. I am familiar with the illustration but not the stories and how funny that you were in Esher - lovely town, we quite often go to the cinema and restaurants there.
Comment: First, BEAUTIFUL PC! This made me laugh so hard. Hey, good doodling. My first thought was, I'd wish for a proper genie who knows how many damn wishes he's supposed to give out! Then I thought I'd settle for permanent world and national and local peace. Just an end to violence entirely. If THAT's too much for lazy one-wish genie, I guess $1 billion would be fine. I mean, I could settle for that, I suppose. hahahaa! Also, I'll write a more serious answer to this in my journal today or tomorrow. Good question. But seriously, I hope you get a better genie hahahahaha! No, not seriously. Anyway, thanks and I'm sorry for the late rating. I've not been well and am catching up tonight.
Comment: Thanks so much for resending! It's natural that the occasional card gets lost, considering everything these small flat pieces of paper have to go through! What a fun vintage card, too! So special! Thanks!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty envie filled with all kinds of stamps! I adore the bird postcard you sent to me as well! I never saw one with glitter on it like this! Thank you for the Paris map too!
All the best!
Comment: Thank you for the cute bunny with a waffle on its head, haha! I have no idea WHY it would be there, but it reminds me of the pictures people take where they stack things on their cat's head, because the cat is too lazy to care!
Comment: Thank you very much for sharing with me the lovely nautical themed postcard and stamp a firm favourite type of mine to receive. I also liked your cute weather symbols, we've had the first sign of snow this week fortunately it was just a fleeting flurry :)
Comment: Ahhhh, beautiful envelope filled with great postcards. Now that’s HAPPY MAIL! Also in love with your Overlook Hotel paper, omg!!!! Thank you for a lovely swap!! (It is so cold and snowy here. Hats and gloves for sure!)
Comment: What a cute envelope!!! : ) Very nice stamps too. I love everything you sent! That tea looks SO good, and I’m in love with the postcards, note card and fabulous bookmark! You really made my day!!!!! Your note is adorable too. What a special swap, THANK YOU!!! xxxx
Comment: You always send the best postcards! I love that you sent me all postcards from Germany. My husband goes back to Munich again in January for a big builders trade show. I’ve got him on the hunt for postcards while he’s away!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful poscard collection you sent me! The postcards are very pretty, unique and intresting. I've never received any of this type and when I saw them, it made my day! Really loved the Tintin one and of course I also loved the other 4. Thanks again and I wish you all the best ^^
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely selection of postcards, all of which I love, but especially Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday - one of my favourite actors and movies. I am thrilled with all of them. Thanks again and best wishes.
Comment: I love this! Okay, I'm a former English teacher, so this reminds me of the story by Saki--"The Open Window." One of my favorite short story authors and one of his best stories too! Check it out if you've never read it. He's one of the original writers who used "twists" that you didn't see coming.
Comment: Thank you for the Sylvia Earle card, Joana. She’s one of my heros. Would you believe I got another card from that women scientist collection in the mail today too! I read the book from which the images were taken & was blown away by the illustrations, so I was delighted when the postcards came out. Your fish stamp was a good match-up too.
Comment: Many thanks for the pretty envelope and lovey postage - and oh, what sweet surprises inside! I absolutely love the 2 postcards: the elegant giraffe card and the amazing Mickey Mouse card! And what a terrific vintage Coke order form! Fun stamps, too, in the little glassine envelope. And what delightful presentation of my surprises -- wrapped in the delicate tissue with the wonderful note tucked under a nose!!! You made me smile with great joy!
Comment: Hi Joana thank you so much for the"Come into the kitchen" Penquin PC. I love that colourful washi tape and also the colourful postage stamp. yummy chutneys :) .Happy summer swapping peace love light
Comment: Thank you for the postcard:) On the August the first I was on vacation in the Tropics in my homeland. It was super hot and while eating sweet water ices I really enjoyed the tempeatures:) While you had a relaxing Summer holiday, I went all ways to enjoy my vacation and settle things for my remigration. Now I am back in the Netherlands and I am sooooo tired;( I didn't took a moment to relax while on vacation. But the SUN is shining here, so I still enjoy these warm days.
Comment: Liebe Joana, danke für die 1A+++ Postkarten! Der Notizzettel ist mein Highlight der Woche!!! So lustig XD
Wohnst ja eigentlich wirklich fast um die Ecke. Frisch deine Erinnerungen von Schleswig doch mal wieder auf! Da gibt es einen Bastelladen, soweit ich weiß. Aber ich war noch nicht da :D
Comment: What a gorgeous postcard - thank you! Yes, I’ve heard of that book. It’s a series I think? I will keep it on my list because I have heard about it so much - must mean I’m meant to read it! Thanks so much for joining my swap. xxx
Comment: We are so spoilt to receive yet another awesome B&W card from your good self. Just the best! The ice cream stand is so topical for you in summer right now and love your hand drawn art as well. Here it is 10'c cool winter day. An Australian travel guide, how exciting!
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful swap and all the extras! I love both sides of the envie and all the little things you tucked inside! I would love to come to Germany again one day. Umarmungen aus Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Wonderful envelope with the stylish couple watching TV.Stylish and creative lettering, too. So well done, and unusual in the vertical format - love the film strip washi. This is an envelope for keeping in my "best of mail art" archives together with its intricately folded note. And thanks also for the postcard and assortment of ephemera; just my style!
Comment: Joana, thank you so much for for the mouse with the umbrella pc you chose to send. how cute! i love the stamps too and this card was so pretty. thanks so much! and by the way -4C is cold. its like 20 degrees Fahrenheit and i cannot imagine how cold that is
Comment: That is an interesting way to fold a note Joana, I liked it. The air mail stickers are cool, I enjoy reading so I thought the book pc was great and I like spending time in my garden so the vegetable themed notecard was of interest. Yes, you made me smile, thank you very much ☺
Comment: Thank you so much for your snowdrop drawing. The drawing itself is lovely and your dedication to drawing outside when it was that cold is admirable! I think I would have picked a flower and retreated inside to draw it. (:
Comment: Thanks so much! I love how you integrated your drawing with the stamp and the PC! I would definitely go to "kaffe" with this group, though the young lady looks a little sour. LOL thanks too for the art nouveau stickers. I love them! Umarmungen aus Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you for the ice cream card! My favourite flavour is raspberry ripple, although I like most fruity flavours! You're right, we are still in winter here but have hardly had any snow, just a few flakes now and again. Happy swapping :)
Comment: Hello There! Happy New Year, and thank you for sharing your favorite place with me. It sounds like a great venue for cinema, and I appreciate your invitation. I would love that! and the wine too!! I plan to frame the cards you sent, loved the tickets stubs. Will dream about visiting that cinema one day - may it prosper, and may you continue making great movie memories there!!
Comment: Received your envelope today. First thing I noticed is how wonderful the washi that was ceilings the envelope and was thinking wow I would like some of that, only to open the inside and find out yes I got some â¤ï¸ðŸ§¡ðŸ’›. Also love the postage stamps. And then I got into the rest of them globe â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›ðŸ§¡â¤ï¸, where do I start - The package of stamps, love them, the washi is wonderful the note card set the note card very pretty. To make it simple, I love everything and know how much it is all appreciate.
We are planning to go back to Europe in 2018 and visit Scotland and Netherlands, a couple of our kids are coming with us so we are very excited.
The best to you in 2018.
Comment: Thank you so very much for the wonderful goodies you sent! A trip to Italy sounds divine, it is a place I hope to visit one day. Thus far we have no plans, but we do tend to be last minute trip takers, so who knows what the new year will have in store?
Comment: I got your resend in the mail today. It was absolutely lovely, thank you so much for the time and effort you put into it! I'm sure the 1st send was lovely too, and am a bit sad that it is lost!
Comment: What a lovely card and note, and I adore the extras! As to the article I'm saving it to read at my next doctors appointment, and have already added it into my bag. I look forward to reading it! My personal superhero is definitely my Dad. In my eyes he's always been able to make anything happen!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful swap!!! The envelope is so pretty (feathers!) and I love the items you chose for me. The deer and hummingbirds are so sweet and I can't wait to use the washi and labels! You spoiled me!!! : ) Thank you for joining my swap! xo

Comment: Thank you so much for the mail-themed mini flip book! I love your style and your sketches/doodles! I have been enjoying too much ice cream this summer! I've been addicted to Baskin Robbins rainbow sherbet! ðŸŒˆðŸ¦
Comment: Joana you outdid youself!!! Thank you so much! The wrapping was so pretty I almost didn't want to open it - but I did! I love it all so much. A blizzard of hearts â¤ðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’–ðŸ’ŸðŸ’•ðŸ’œðŸ’› and a big hug for you for making me feel so special ðŸ˜˜
Comment: Greetings Joana! What a lovely parcel you sent to fulfill this swap--so many lovely enclosures. I'm really in love with the pink/white striped bag and the beautiful postage. Thank you very much.
Comment: Hello Joana -- thanks for the nice old card of the mountains. Looks like a great place to hike, even in B&W. Neat VW car stamp, too. Our family car was a 1958 Bug, then a 1972 Hatchback. Both ran forever. Best, al
Comment: You did such an excellent job on the envelope. And then there was this beautiful packed present inside ðŸ’™ Very thoughtful items. One of the stamps even has an immage of the little bird our grandson is named after, his name is Mees, he is 12 weeks old now. Wonderful.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome postcard and beer stamps ðŸ˜‹ðŸ‘„ Lips are definitely made for kissing and I can't stop kissing my new girlfriend Caitlyn. She is amazing and funny and things are going great so far. Have a wonderful day, Nathan
Comment: Thanks for the super awesome Dachshund postcard ðŸ¶â¤ï¸ðŸ˜Š My best friend might be getting a Black and Tan male puppy. She has a red and a double dapple but they are both getting quite old now. I took the girl from work last night to go see Wonder Woman as a first date and had a great time. Have an awesome weekend, Nathan
Comment: I love this deer/book postcard! I mean, could of be more perfect!!!??? I too am catching up on magazines!!! I will start a new book this week - which one: to be decided still! Oh I'll bet the cherry trees look so pretty. The fruit is even better!! I was in Germany last Monday!!! : ) Thank you for joining my swap!! xo
Comment: Thank you for the fabulous vintage goodies - I loved the glimpse into life in Germany in the 20's and 30's! I actually spent 5 minutes opening the package cause I didn't want to damage the beautiful envelope as well ðŸ˜Š. I had fun reading the recipe page trying to puzzle out what the recipes are for as well. Danke! (that's all the German I know aside from yes, no, a little night music ðŸ˜‚ and, apparently salt, butter, tomato...).
Comment: Thank you very much for the Postbox postcard it is my favourite subject to receive the choice of stamp to match is just right too! Nice message with the addition of the weather symbols I like that you added that as well :)
Comment: What a great package of goodness! From the paper bag envelope, to the pattern paper, and especially to the letter from Mrs. John Payne of Illinois, I loved every single thing you sent. Thanks so much, Joana!!
Comment: Here is where this goes!!! Beautiful postcard!!! Simply beautiful!! Thank you so much for a great swap. â™¥â™¥â™¥

Will update the other rating as soon as I get it.

Edited: The postcard I received was for the Odd PC lol...
Comment: Vielen Dank fÃ¼r die tolle Post! LuftpostbriefumschlÃ¤ge finde ich immer soooo wunderbar :) Hast Du denn einige Briefe schreiben kÃ¶nnen am Wochenende? Das Briefpapier ist wirklich total schÃ¶n :)
Comment: Hi Joana, I love the PC you sent. I am 52 yrs old and I remember well the wonderful comics they used to put into the paper. Nowadays, I think not so much. I really love the postcard. And thank you so much for using those fantastic bunny postage stamps! so cute! A real joy it was for me to receive this today. Blessings of peace love light.
Comment: What a beautiful PC and yes it does look like a place that would warrant a trip. I am always fascinated with PCs from outside the US and especially in the countries in Europe -- so much history and such amazing architecture and design of so many different things - just amazing. Thanks so much for a beautiful PC and hope to see you in future swaps ~~
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Postcard! Oh my gosh I do the very same thing I write faster than I think and go back and have to scribble it out or put a sticker over it !! Glad I'm not the only one ðŸ˜‚
Comment: Hi Joana, I love the PC...thank you so much. And the postage stamps are really beautiful. I too am waiting for spring. Here we have the snow drops, crocus and daffodils in bloom...although they had to dodge some snowfall. Happy swapping. Blessings and take good care.
Comment: Thank you Joana, yes, your Valentine's Day card and your cheery note made me smile. Enjoyed the "rain of roses" from the card. Loved your mail art, the postage stamps, and interesting old postcard showing working horses. Fun swap. Happy February!
Comment: Thank you for the card--I also like the stamp with the 20s fashion. Reminds me of the last few seasons of "Downton Abbey"--great fashions. There was an exhibit at the museum here of costumes from the tv program.
Comment: Loved your PC!!! Great line too!!! Yes, have been doing all sort of experiments with paper, water color and just basically mixed media... Getting out of my comfort zone... Your message reminded me that!!! Thank you for a great swap!!
Comment: Thanks for the cool postcard with awesome stamps ðŸ˜‹ I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year. My best friend's birthday is December 26th and we took her to the Orlando Eye Ferris wheel ðŸŽ¡ and it was very fun. Maybe this year I can actually manage a date and do some traveling too. I'd like to visit Portland, Oregon and Ireland ðŸ‡®ðŸ‡ª. Warm wishes, Nathan
Comment: Danke fÃ¼r deine coole Postkarte! :D Ist mal was anderes ;) Ob ich ein Camping-Fan bin oder nicht, weiÃŸ ich nicht..hab es noch nie so richtig ausprobiert. Aber Camping so wie auf dem Bild sieht nicht sonderlich spannend aus :D Die Postkarte musste gar nicht so weit reisen, war ja fast nebenan :) Dir auch schÃ¶ne Feiertage und einen guten Rutsch!
Comment: This is one of the loveliest postcards I've ever received! I am an avid reader, love pen and paper, and anything art related, and I'm also I big fan of birds, (I actually have 4 pet budgies!) This PC has a distinct Asian feel which is very dear to me, and there are even ladybugs on the tree which is a huge symbol in international adoption â¤ï¸ It was truly as if this was custom made for me. And it arrived on a day when I needed to be uplifted so much. Thank you very much...you'll never know how much this humble postcard blessed my day!
Comment: Hi Joana!! Oh, it is so nice to receive mail from you!!! The envelope, the stamps, the mail art....simply amazing!! Everything you enclosed is great! Can't wait to try the teas. I agree with that article....winter is awful!!! Thankfully I'm not affected by the fewer hours of daylight but the cold just kills me!! Ha ha!! The beer mat and airmail labels and postcards....thank you so very much. Just perfect!!!!!!!! Thank you for joining again!!! xoxo
Comment: Thank you for the swap! I love how you folded the letter... I examined it very carefully before opening to make sure that I could remember how to put it back together. The exhibition looks very interesting too!
Comment: Thank you for the cute bird card! The Blue Tit is my German pen pal's favorite bird. I've never seen one but hope to some day. Very cool about you seeing the herons! We have lots of them here along with cranes. My bird I had spotted was a Pileated Woodpecker, the largest woodpecker in the USA. They are pretty elusive but we have lots around. I just happen to get to see more as I drive 80 miles a day :)
Comment: Thank you for the very cute flat paper items in your first envelope! And thank you for being willing to send the two bath items to made it a proper package swap. I like and appreciate all the random items!
Comment: Hi Joana! Thank you for the neat Panama postcard and a memory from childhood for why you want to go there. My dream since childhood is to visit Tierra del Fuego in Argentina/Chile. I would love to go that far south, and have an opportunity to go to Antarctica, too. . . in the wintertime! :-) Thank you so much for sharing!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! :) It sounds like you had a great summer! I had an awesome summer too, i went on holiday with my family to celebrate my 21st Birthday, so that was probably my favourite part! :)
Comment: Oh my gosh, Joana, what a brilliant creation! I was delighted to see that the "sandwich" was wrapped the way a real deli sandwich would be, and then when I read the description, my mouth was literally watering! The variety and texture of the materials you used were such fun. I've been showing it to everyone. Definitely one of my favorite thing I've ever received on SB! THANK YOU! <3 <3 <3
Comment: Thank you for the funny postcard ðŸ˜‹ I just came back from Comic-Con in San Diego and that was lots of fun and the weather was nice. The weather back here in Florida is way too hot and muggy. I think I need to go back to the west coast. Have a great summer, Nathan
Comment: Thank you so much for this lovely envelope! sorry for the delay in rating - I was absolutely convinced I'd already rated you but either my memory is failing me or it didn't post for some reason! Anyway, I loved the items you chose and the photos are wonderful! Thank you so much!
Comment: Hallo Joana!
Sometimes I wonder WHY certain things become tourist destinations. Why? HAHAH This is a perfect postcard for UGLY postcard! The photographer could have snapped the photo in a more artistic way... It looks like the wall is being reinforced by pieces of wood ... how safe could that be!
Hugs and have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the 'not-a-postcard'! I have never actually ready any of those books! But that is certainly a good way of reusing them! Thank you for the nice wishes, best of luck with your move, I hope everything runs smoothly for you :)
Comment: You are so incredibly clever! What an incredible postcard, down to the Fahrenheit stamp :) I love the Devonian tea bag -- wouldn't it be great if you could bring an ancient world to life just like that?! Thanks so much for a wonderful swap.
Comment: Hi Joana, thank you for the very cool B&W overloaded truck card! I am sure you are right that people were intermingling on that trip! Great choice for the word. and thank you for joining the swap! All the best, Cynthia
Comment: Halo Joana! Thanks for the beautiful Map PC! I always wanted to go and visit Ayers Rock in Australia. I plan one more trip, to Germany, in the next few years. We also have had little snow this year. Today, we received one inch, but it is already melting in the sunshine! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you so much for my postcard...I do love that quote by Mary Poppins too! Even more so, I absolutely love your squirrel tape, sooo cute! As for 'luck', I want plenty of it this coming year!! Hahaha Once again, thank you Joana xx
Comment: I absolutely LOVE these swaps! They are some of my favorites!! Thank you for the cute postcard made from the MAOAM packaging!
Happy New Year ! I hope you are well and that 2016 has started off wonderfully for you and your family!
Comment: Hi Joana--thank you for the swell "chunk!" I don't think I'd ever heard of Nappo before. It's not really something I'd go for: when we're talking about candy, I head straight for the chocolate! Very nice stamps. Have you ever gotten to go inside a lighthouse, if not live in one? I've been in a couple. The closest, though, has been closed for many years due to some structural problem. I do get to see many lighthouses, though, driving up & down the California coast!
Thanks again for a welcome card!
Comment: Thank you, what a great photo! It's getting cold here, too, though not as cold as where you are. We had lows in the 20's all last week. It's was lovely to receive a card with a little reminder of summer!
Comment: Hello! Thank you so much for your great postcard! I loved it :-).
I very much enjoy traveling and flying, but with four kids I don't get to do it as much anymore. A few years back, when we only had three kiddos, we went to South Africa. My best trip EVER! I never wanted to leave. My husband used to live there :-)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful "chunk"--I recognized the Kinder Egg colors right away! I do come across Kinder Surprise, and also Zaini eggs sometimes, and enjoy opening them in hopes of a great surprise. I think the chocolate is bad, so I toss it, but I am always hopeful for the toy, and have found some good ones! We sometimes see a couple of "street legal" brands here in the U.S., where an abundance of concern demands that the two halves of the shell not be fused, and sometimes the toy in those is cool, too! :)
Thanks again for a great card & note!
Comment: Love the postcard! Love the stamp! This is one of my favorite postcards ever received. And thank you for your patience while I was away from home for a month. I had a pile of mail when I returned :)
