Comment: .My mother was cleaning up and found a bag of bills and other mail from the past year. I'm so sorry for taking so long to rate you. I thought I was finally caught up on my mail but I guess not.
Thank you for sending the notecard. Hope you've had success with your goals during the rest of the year.
Comment: Thanks for taking the time to share your July with me! Yours was very busy with work and baby showers: I hope they went well and people appreciated the effort you went to! All the best, Tracy.
Comment: Thank you so much for the great zodiak sign postcard! Another cancer for my collection :) "Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe" sounds like something I may like. I googled it and this is indeed YA novel and I like that genre very much ;) Thank you once again! Best wishes!
Comment: And there it was, with an other 'lost swap' as if it has been lying somewhere for a while ... Thanks for the nice extra Love/Peace-bird card and for the wonderful stamps on the envie!!!! Very happy with those too!!!
Comment: Thanks for the nice PC and note.
New York is a favorite city of mine, probably second only to Chicago.
I love the High Line Park. It is neat that the railroad actually went right through a buildings. I have to do it again as the Hudson Yard end was not yet completed the second time I walked it.
Comment: Thank you for the nice envelope. I'll be happy to open it in December. Edit 12/06/2018: It was a great pleasure to receive your lovely snowman card and the pretty extras. Many thanks also for your kind note and good wishes. Happy holidays!
Comment: Thank you for passing your postcard on to me. I will send it out with the next round. Thank you also for the extra postcards. It's lovely to see your home state, and I absolutely love the vintage PC reproduction. Take care. :)
Comment: Thank you for my favorite type of postcard! I have this one sent naked and sent blank. I do not want another from you. PLEASE do not send a replacement. This is from you and that makes it special. You can send one of these for every swap with a new message about something in your life and that will make it extra special. THANK YOU!
Comment: That is a huge stadium! The Brewer Stadium in Milwaukee is not even close! The last time we went to a game, they left the roof open, and it felt like we were being grilled alive! Thanks for the card! We visited my niece and nephew in Annapolis this past fall - what an experience! Yes, can't wait for spring! Happy swapping!
Comment: Man I LOVE this postcard you sent me. Sums me up totally. I am a booklover and am reading my 8th book for the year. I am currently reading 'The Last Anniversary' by Liane Moriatry. Thanks for being the first person to receive off for the year!
Comment: Hello Karin,
Thank you for your lovely postcard you colored for me for this swap. I love butterflies. I also love to color because it helps me to distress. I love how you used markers. I will proudly add this to my collection of colored postcards.
Comment: Oh my God, this beautiful Alabama postcard traveled more than 2 months to get my hands on, it must have many things to tell :-) I'm glad to receive it, I did not have this state, greetings from Chile!
Comment: Thank you for the HP postcard! I love the Weasley twins :) It came torn but I blame the postoffice, and luckily the picture is still colourable. I also loved the eclipse stamp. Hope to get partnered with you again!
Comment: Thanks for sending this swap to your next partner. I love the washi tapes very much. It's the first time I receive TWO PC's for this swap ;-)
By the way: the envelop was torn, but I think the content was complete.
I always put some transparant tape around the edges of the envelope.
Comment: Karin! *_* I received your quote postcard today!! I have started reading Game of Thrones the previous week (in English)! :-o What a coincidence! Haha! The writting in these books is trully amazing......!!! I am so into this one! :-D Thank you!! Greetings fro Greece!
Comment: Your book of poems arrived -= love your envie. I haven't read them but flipped through and saw the famous old ones that I always like rereading. Thanks for including some of your own -- that's the best part, as the others are oldies-but-goodies
Comment: I am glad your library has reopened again. I couldn't live without mine. I am currently waiting on books to come in so at the moment I am in between books. Deciding on whether to read a historical fiction about the first woman landing in Antartica or about Cyclone Tracy which hit Australia many years ago. I will give you some book recommendations this weekend through Goodreads :) Thanks for the postcard

Comment: Belated thank you for the stunning, dreamy dancers card (I love the trove of designs available on RedBubble, and I find myself having to pare down my cart/order ^_^;;) -- I wonder what they are dancing, tango, swing... ? -- and the great, so-true Sara Quin quote, Karin! Happy Friday â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the sweet Toy Story 3 card and for sharing your love of the series! I agree, that last film was so heartrending and well-done, I was on the verge of tears before the hilarious deus ex machina solution with the Aliens :) Hope you have a good weekend!
Comment: Happy New Year Greetings from Illinois,
Sorry for the late rating. I was gone from home 12/20/16 and had my mail held to be delivered 12/31/16. It was just delivered today, 1/4/17!!
So here I am with 30 swaps to rate. It's a good day.
Thank you for being my partner. I loved your card as I love birds. Also could not believe that the 3D snowflake & tree attached to the outside of the envie made it! kudos!
Thank you for the notecards.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderfully decorated envelope. It arrived in Australia today (1st of Jan) and my postman said it was one of the most "Christmasy" Christmas envelopes he had seen all season. I dare say he sees a lot :D
Thank you again, Natalie
Comment: Karin, what a treat this was to get in the mail this morning and I feel really excited to have a chance to read so many of your amazing poems."Secrets live within Yet promises live on the outside" Fabulous
Comment: Hi Karin,
Thank you for the lovely coloring card. It's very detailed so i have a lot to color. Can't wait to get started.
I saw the paper stars on your profile, great idea, i will give them a try.
Best wishes and happy swapping
Comment: Thanks for the triple-awesome postcard! I've never seen the Cold Case series. If it comes on Netflix, maybe I'll watch it.
PS: Do you have any blanks of that postcard? I'd love to have one or more :)
Comment: Wow, what a surprise. I wasn't expecting a package like that. I'm going to save both of them to open at Christmas, it will be hard to resist now. The pen takes me back to grade school when I had one just like that. Thank you so
much for everything!
12/26/16: Wow! I love the coloring book and the tea set! Thank you!!! â¤â¤â¤
Comment: Hey, I have those same postcards. Now I have on I get to keep instead of sending out! I have to admit, I'm not much of a poetry person. But, I know those who enjoy it, truly enjoy it from the heart.
Comment: WOW! Let's overlook that this is a recipe postcard with a mix of postage stamps which both always makes me happy and give you a big bunch of hearts for quoting from my favorite book series!!! Thank you, you are awesome!!!

Comment: Thank you for the Hannibal pics - you picked my favorite one of Will in the face mask! If you like psychological thrillers and don't mind gruesome crime scenes, it's a really great series. I was sad it got cancelled.
Comment: I got to see Big Hero 6 when I was recovering right after surgery. My b/f put it on for us the first night home from hospital. Maybe it was the meds, but it hit me right square in the feels. And I do hope you find lots of stuff to do in SC! I had great fun visiting there. xoxo
Comment: Thanks so much for your gorgeous cupcake card - I love it! And thanks for letting me in on what you're watching. I love crime shows so I think I'd love "Motive" - I really have to check it out!
Comment: Hello Karin. I recieved your letter, and I'm writing back to you now. Sorry it's been a little longer to rate you then when I recieved it. I have been horribly sick and feel behind on my letters and ratings. You will be receiving a response shortly. Have a great weekend.
Comment: Your story really touched my heart and I hope you get to run to your lover's arms soon. It's wonderful how distance can mean so little to the heart someties I'm lucky to have everyone near me for now so I would grab all my loved ones and visit South America :)
Response: I am glad my story touched you. You are the first person I have truly told this to besides him. Thank you for the rating and the heart.

Comment: Sorry to be late with this but just finally back to the computer and reading my email. I found the page you sent rather intriguing and will be looking for the book in the Library. Much impressed with your printing too. Many thanks.
Comment: Your lovely PC arrived today. Great phoe of Mom and foal and the green grass makes me long for spring and a chance to go out and see all the new things growing. You're lucky to be able to visit horses and cats when you have none of your own - maybe one day? Mine are now imaginary one - except for Charlie, the dog - he is a difinate presence!
Comment: You are the best! I think I squealed when I saw shiny C-3PO protruding from the mail, and I knew exactly what was on the card :) If Swap-Bot had a favorites gallery like Postcrossing, your card would definitely be part of it! Thank you also for the question and answer -- that is also something I have been working toward for some time. Best wishes!
Comment: Karin, I love the picture on the postcard you send. I want to be sitting here. How fun to read your recommendations. There's a few new-to-me that I want to check out. Have you read the Old Thomas series from Dean Koontz?
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. I have not read that book series but I am going to put it on my TBR list.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely comment! :D Oh and my fave character from LOTR is Gollum/Smeagol, just because he is " evil" but not really.. Adnd then after that Gandalf.. Because ... Gandalf :p LOL!
Comment: Thanks for ALL the great Postcards and so many extras!!! It is so hard to choose when not allowed to look at a partner's profile...but that is part of the fun of it! Otherwise, I would only receive pc with birds!!! LOL Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you liked the postcards I sent. Hugs from Maryland. Karin :)
I'm so lucky to have gotten you as a swap partner again! I loooooooooove all the teas that you sent me! I especially appreciate the Trader Joes pomegranate white tea! I forget about TJs wonderful teas (and other goodies!). Whenever I go there I come home with $1000.00 worth of schtuff! LOL! ðŸ˜œðŸ˜œðŸ˜œ
Thanks so much sweetie!
Response: You are welcome. I am so happy you enjoy all the tea I sent you. :)
Comment: I have a reading goal for 2016 too! What is a TBR jar?
Response: It is a jar filled with pieces of paper that have a book you own but have not read yet written on it. As you buy a book, you pick a piece a paper out of the jar and read that book. I use the book to help me choose my next book to read.
Comment: This book sounds good. I just may have to get it. Thanks for the holiday wishes. You were very brave to hand write your selection. You have lovely handwriting. I tried that at first but it was horrible. Lol thank you. Swapping is fun
Comment: I only found out recently that I am als afraid of heights after climbing up a tall forest fire watchtower in the Okeefenokee swamp! I've never ridden a plane either, we will see how that goes!
Comment: Hi Karin!
Thank you for your lovely letter and hot chocolate! I'm just like you...I have a mixed relationship with winter. I love snow around the Holidays, but then I'm done with it!
I'm familiar with Maryland winters, as we lived in Bel Air for 4 years. I remember one year, 1998 or 1999, maybe...it was terribly icy, everything was covered with ice for awhile. I was pregnant that winter, so it made me especially miserable!
Thanks again for a great swap!!! Happy Holidays!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard, Karin! I myself cannot do road trips because being in a car for long periods of time hurts my legs (I have fibromylagia). But if I were healthy, a road trip would be fun! I hope you find someone to go with. Cheers!
Comment: Thank you soo much for the great postcard! I know, I should have written down all the postcards I have sent to you lol. If I ever send you duplicates just let me know and I can send more :D HeHe. Thank you for being so awesome! I love this postcard! Hugs
Comment: Hello Karin! Thank you for the postcard you sent me! Nice to know you're reading Stephen King - a little too scary for me, to be honest! I just started reading for the second time The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz ZafÃ³n. Have you heard about it? It's pretty amazing! Hope you're having a good day as well! Best wishes, Raphaela.
Comment: Thank so much for the sailboat New Yorker postcard. I love it! I have been on a sailboat, actually - I worked for 3 months as a nanny for a family travelling on a sailboat. It was a bit intense ;)
Comment: OMG!ðŸŽƒI love your Casper Halloween ATCðŸŽƒ. Thank you for the wonderful Halloween card too. The Casper ATC is my all time favorite one of yours yet. ðŸŽƒHAPPY HALLOWEENðŸŽƒ
Response: Thank you Amber! :) I am so happy you like the ATC. I agree that this ATC is my favorite one I have made yet. I am glad you got to be the one to receive after being the one who received one of my first ATCs.
Comment: ðŸŽðŸ’ðŸ“ðŸðŸŽðŸ’ðŸ“ðŸðŸŽðŸ’ðŸ“ðŸ. Karin! You are so talented! Your fruit tart is beautiful and I agree, freshly made and right into my tummy is such a delicious treat! I love my dessert APC!
You did a fantastic job!
Response: Thank you. I am so happy you like it. It was my favorite APC to make in the series. I hope we are swap partners again soon. :)
Comment: Thanks for making this a fun swap! I just adore swapping with you. And if you ever want my answer to your last question (and even if you don't), I think you are amazing, kind, sweet, generous and lots of fun!
Response: Thank you ChrisAnne for hosting such fun swaps. I love to swap with you. :)
Comment: What a THRILL it was to receive your post card !!! I used to live in Laurel. A long time ago, 1963. Thank you for the card and I did already did get the lost card. Both came on the same day. I will leave a message all swap partners can share the fun. Thanks again.
Comment: I got both cards at the same time!! The other one says, "So, I was curious,, is this an experiment to see how many postcards get returned? I would really love to know... (then she included her email address) 1 of 2 returned. (Apparently you left two in the locker room and she grabbed them both?) Very cool!! Thank you!!
Oh, Karin! What a perfectly lovely APC you made for me! I lovelovelove it! And what a gorgeous card! What are the odds that you were drawn to it? I thank you so very much for being such a wonderful swap partner! (and I'm with you about the apple pie vs pumpkin pie!)
Comment: Thank you for your card. There is a large, orange tabby tom cat who has taken up residence in my yard. I call him Pumpkin. He is still to wary for me to get him into a carrier. He lets me pet him though.ðŸ±
Response: Thank you for the â¤ï¸ and rating. To be honest, I have not been in a Dunkin Donuts in ages. I just immediately thought of it when I signed up for Donuts APC. I am so glad you liked it. You are very welcome. :)
Comment: Karin, I love the Scooby Doo postcard. We were in Ocean City, Md in June. I love the Boardwalk, I wish I would have seen those PC's !
Response: Thank you for â¤ï¸ and rating. I was at Ocean City in June as well. I found the PCs in a shop off the end of the boardwalk. I believe it was in the Down Memory Lane shop. I am so glad you liked the Scooby Doo postcard. :)
Comment: you do so much in one day! you're my new hero for being able to wake up that early, i would need a whole band to drag me out of bed ahah. thank you so much for sharing all of this with me and for the awesome washi samples as well. have a nice day!
Response: You are very welcome. Work keeps me super busy. It took me a while to get use to waking so early but I have been doing it since high school. Thank you for the â¤ï¸ and rating.
Comment: Thank you for the Macaroon APC. I think you did a wonderful job. I think a lot of us had trouble with this one trying to think of how to do it. You pulled it off with flying colors. Thank you for the stickers as well. Have a wonderful day!

Chuckled at the Ocean City postcard with the seagulls. Lived at Andrews AFB for 4 years in the 90's and am very familiar with your neck of the woods! Loved it. Thank you for everything!
Comment: â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ What a beautiful cupcake you made for me! I love the colors of the collage and the teeny little cupcakes sprinkled about. You did great, gal!!
Thank you so much for the sweet cupcake stickers! You are the best!
HaPpY BeRFUSdey, too! ðŸŽ‚ðŸŽðŸŽ‚
Comment: Thank you for the card. I cannot do any specific dances (cannot seem to learn, as hard as I try) so I just shake my booty and move my feet and arms to the music! I cannot imagine the discipline you must have had for ballet! Kudos to you! I hope you are having a lovely day too!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful hand painted ATC's. I love the stories to go with both of them as well. Have a wonderful day!
Thank you for the PINK :) Butterfly hand painted ATC! You know I LOVE PINK!!
Response: You are welcome, Amber. I am glad you liked the pink butterfly. I thought you would like it. :)
Thank you so much for your very sweet comments and wonderful pictures for the letter C comments swap. I have had such fun with this series and hope to do the whole alphabet. I loved everything you picked. Been sick in bed today and you managed to make me smile-- so thank you very much for your comments and your friendship. I love swap-bot and the Friendlies group so much! Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the card and the owl bookmarks, and the heesheys!! It is nowhere in my profile, but my latest obsession is hummingbirds. They don't live in Europe, and I've only ever seen one so the birthday card was pretty special too!
Comment: Thank you Karin, for sending me not one, but two stocking suffers. I am going to try my best to wait until Christmas to open them. Having something to open on Christmas will make me feel like a kid again! Thank you so much !
Comment: This is a beautiful APC. You did a good job on this one, the only thing is green words on the side did smear. However it is a wonderful APC I truly mean that! Thank you so much.
Have a wonderful day!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome Green Arrow ATC! Never apologize for your creative talents. I think this ATC rocks! I really love the Arrow quote you included. Is the quote from the tv show as well as the costume? Thanks for joining and thanks again for the awesome ATC!
Response: You are welcome. I am glad you like the ATC. The quote is from the Comics that I found on Pinterest. Thank you for hosting the swap.
Comment: Thank you for making this APC. I know that this is a new kind a swap for you! I give you the encouragement to keep working at this and you will be surprised in a month how far you techniques will change and even find new ones! Have a wonderful day! UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH for sending another one, really you didn't have too. it is very cute and you did awesome job on it!!!!!!!!!!!
Comment: Wow...Karen,Thank you so much for the MEGA
package,sooo much cool stuff here..Everything is awesome and very thoughtful of you to look at ,my profile :) I can use everything you sent my way.
Your a GREAT swap partner thanks for making my day brighter ! Hugs,Cheryl
Comment: Thank you, Karin, for the interesting letter that you sent to me. It is fun to read about everyone else's life. I, too, like jigsaw puzzles. Let me know if you want to do a private swap. pobuffy
PS: Thank you for the postcard that you included. Very nice of you.
Comment: Wow! You spoiled me! So much awesome in this envie! I really Love the Magnet, it is wonderful and already on my fridge. Everything is great! Thank you so much <3
Response: I really love this swap where you do not know who your partner is before you fill the envelope up. I am always filling the envelope up with things I like to share. I am glad you liked everything. You are welcome. :)
Comment: Lovely package thanks so much, the Hershey's didn't last long ;) and i can't wait to use all the beautiful cards and postcards. I used to go crabbing as a child with my dad so that magnet brought back some lovely memories! Thanks again, Amy xo
Comment: Thanks Karin. I love the envelope and the washi samples. I never thought of using floss bobbins. Two of the books you like are the same for me but my favorite series by Nora Roberts is the Chesapeake Bay series. She just does a wonderful job writing about "brother's" relationships. A lot of writers shy away from that because writing about women is just easier.
Comment: Just wanted to let you know I received it! Waiting to open to do a mail haul for Youtube! Will update the rate once I do!
UPDATE 4/25 loved everything so much! I see you subscribed to my channel, I really appreciate it! Video will be up tomorrow ^^ Looking forward to getting good use out of the fun puzzle books and the pens-I'm a sucker for colorful pens!
Comment: Hi Karin! Thank you so much for the beautiful Easter card and wishes! I love Daffodils and mine are starting to bloom - woot, woot! Perfect card! Thanks so much for making this gloomy Tuesday amazing! Hugs and Happy Swapping! Happy Easter to you and yours as well! ;)
Comment: Oh wow Karin! Thank you for helping bring back wonderful sunshine memories for me of a few trips to Ocean City, Maryland with my family. You are so fortunate to have a home away from home in Ocean City, to walk the beach, breathe the ocean air. Thank you for this postcard you sent to me for the swap. I'm sharing it with my mom for memories of the beach. Happy March to you!
Comment: It amazes me how flat the coastline is on the other side of the country. We have hills of 100 feet sometimes across the street from the beach, other times only a couple blocks away. Thank you for the card
