Comment: Wow, what a cool postcard ~ love the woman under glass! I wish I had a pool to rest in too, although it's not as humid here in Southern California as it is back East where you are. Hope your summer gets better and that your Autumn is wonderfully cooler! Take care.
Response: for some reason, i read this quickly, and the first reading was halted when i thought you said that you wish you had a woman under a glass... i was like... umm, where is this comment going.... no, kate, that's not what she said at all. hahahahaha yes, a pool would be delightful! :) xx thanks for the <3 !!
Comment: Thank you so much, Kate for your brilliant and heartfelt letter. I really enjoyed reading your letter (if I can even say that for such a difficult thing for you to write). If you'd ever like to exchange letters or do more private swaps of this nature, let me know.Thank you for the letter.

I feel like I'm *really* back now! :-D
Comment: Thank you so much for this lovely swap! I love what you sent me, all the lettersets are great. And about the set with only 1 sheet, I love that one too! If you are interested in doing a private letterset swap, just pm me :)
Comment: You did an AWESOME job picking out some wonderful gifts for me! The stationery set is very cute, and I look forward to using it with a penpal. The personalized recipe cards are SO awesome!

Comment: Such a beautiful pc! I often wonder if the postal people think we are nuts or are just annoyed when they try and stuff so much into my mailbox. Oh well, Thanks again
Response: ha -- i think i've come to terms with the fact that *someone* is going to think i'm crazy for *some reason* so i may as well just kick back and accept it -- hahahaha, thank you so much for the heart!!! xx
Comment: Thanks so much for all of the candy. Where did you get the airhead lollipops? Thanks again <3

Comment: Thanks so much for the swap, how thoughtful of you to think of everyone in my family, Kayne LOVES the ben10 figure, Jess took the mag to read right away, I of course love the things for me, Daniel will love the mag once he sees it lol and Jake loves the bath crayons, you def cheered everyone up!! Thanks

Comment: I love love love Listen to the Warm. I'll have to check out more poems by him. Thanks so much for sharing. ;)
Response: I'm really glad you like it, seriously! He's fantastic... also, he was a contemporary of Jacques Brel and put out some albums as well (he's got a raspy I've-been-smoking-since-birth type of voice, but I love it so much, and his music is as simple and sweet as his poetry!) -- thanks for the heart! xx
Comment: Thank you Kate! Loved the short micro-fiction, I know it was a tough challenge (for me too with so little words), now I'm in suspense about Georgie and all. Good job... Take care, Miki
Response: I found it more difficult than I was expecting to write such a short story. I kind of wrote in my head a huge story and gave you a snippet - I'm glad you liked it ;o) and thanks for the heart! xx
Comment: Thanks ever so much for a wonderful package of goodies, the chocolate kisses are yum yum, lol. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Response: Yay! I told you I had fun putting those things together :-P I'm glad the kisses got to you okay... I was worried about the summer weather with the chocolate... Thank you so much for the heart, too! xx
Comment: Dear Kate, thank you so much for the wonderful sweet treats. :) I have tasted the Boston Baked Beans and they are good, and now I'm waiting to savor the saltwater taffy which I look forward to getting into, as being a local treat made from your area. :) xx
Response: Oh my gosh I was totally waiting to see what you thought of those things! Hahahaha... those boston baked beans - people take 'em or leave 'em so I'm glad you enjoy them! The saltwater taffy is mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :-P Thanks for the heart!! xx
Comment: Got the post card from Boston! What a great panoramic view! Thanks for sharing!
Response: WHOA - I'm sorry that you did not receive anything, but I never heard anything from you. This swap was for a postcard. Everyone else that I sent postcards to received them. I am going to PM you right now in order to discuss this rating.
Comment: Loved them... so soft and stretchy... PINK my fav and polka dots... Thanks so much they are super cute and very very comfy... I got a good laugh at your note about helping conceive... lol... hopefully these are the magic undies...lmao
Response: so so happy that they suit your liking... and insert devilish grin here RE: the magic panties!! thanks for the heart xx
Comment: Dear Katharine,
Thank you so much for your truly beautiful uplifting items. That's not a worry on spelling my name incorrectly. I forgive you. :) I enjoyed the quote card very much, and also the scrapbook transfers.
Your package was a joy to receive too, and your book touched my heart deeply as it is beautiful and I can see your touch in it, through your giving and your card which is very pretty in pink and green stripes. Thank you again so much. It was a very thoughtful gift. Have a beautiful weekend, and I hope we can be friends. :)
Response: :-D Ana, nothing would make me happier than to be friends!! I'm so very happy that you really enjoyed the card and book... thanks so much for the heart!! xx
Comment: I love the worry dolls and card. I really like Edward Gorey. I thought your letter was very sweet and generous. That is a tough situation.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the worry dolls... I think especially with this swap, when we're all possibly writing to someone for whom we worry, they'd be appropriate... I only wish I could send that letter to him... thanks for the heart xx
Comment: Haha this note is so funny. Loved the bit about "no police". Thanks! P.S Can I please have my stuff back??!! Lol. :o))
Response: :-D I'm glad you liked it! I took a look at your profile and I thought, "MAN! This girl has some great taste in music!" so I figured a Mix CD would be appropriate ransom xx (ps. you can have your things back when i get the cd)
Comment: Nice notecard selection! Thanks! I too like the Wonder Woman one!
Response: oh my gosh, I'm so glad you liked the selection... it was kind of tough for me because I really absolutely adore note cards and so I have so many -- Wonder Woman is the best!! -- thanks for the <3 xx
Comment: Thanks! I found those big Sweettarts too and were reluctant to send them- now I got some back for myself.
Response: hahaha... I'm glad you liked them! I found that it was focused on non-chocolatey foods, and hoped that you'd be okay with that... but those M&Ms - those look interesting! Hope you enjoy, and thanks so much for the heart!! xx
Comment: Haha don't be sorry that this card isn't black and white, I love it! Boston is the home of my favourite singer, Amanda Palmer! And I agree about Native Son, it's very powerful. Thanks so much for signing up for this swap!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! Yeah, I remember back in the day seeing Dresden Dolls in Cambridge... and the Unicorns too (you might like them, even though they've since disbanded...) Thanks for the heart!! xx
Comment: Leaving on a Jetplane is a great song! I've love the both Peter, Paul and Mary's and the original, John Denver has so beautiful voice <3.
Response: I couldn't agree with you more -- we went on a family reunion to Colorado in 2003 and my father bought a JD CD... (what tourists!) But I do love his music, and now he always makes me think of my dad :o) xx thanks for the heart!
Comment: I was born in Boston ... South Boston to be exact :-) I still consider it home. I moved to Pittsburgh 6 years ago, and though it is a lovely city, nothing compares to Boston. Thank you for a view that I will treasure forever.
Response: nice -- you can take the girl out of southie but you can never take the southie out of the girl... i'm so glad you liked the postcard!! xx
Comment: Thank you the lovely notecards and the quote. Question: Is the paper of the quote a rub on item?
Response: Aw - I'm glad you like! The paper with the quote is a rub on quote... I saw in your profile that you like scrapbooking and I thought that maybe scrapbookers might enjoy that sort of thing?? xx
