Comment: Wow! You really went all out. I can't mention everything I liked about the envelope, so let me pick a couple: the postman owl is wonderful. And the crow flying off with the watch made me both laugh and scratch my head - it's great! Thanks for the kawaii bonus. It's always nice to have stationery. THANKS!

Comment: Guess what arrived today?! First off the mail art is that...down to the stamps you made it profile based and I am going to put it in my binder for sure! your stationary is fun and I appreciate you put four sheets to an envelope because I like to write ALOT :) and the birdy stamp on the orange paper will be great to write little notes on and add to swaps...and I think my ALMOST favorite is the little postman stamped on a piece of paper, he is going on my cork board!...did you make him yourself or buy it?

Comment: Hello Kiki! Giving you heart for stamps you placed on the envie! They are beautiful. You forgot to write name of the swap either on your note or on the envie so I had to look out for which swap this was (and when you have a full dashboard like I do, it takes time!). Please be careful with this in future or you might not get rated or find out that your swap has been received. PS. Wouldn't it cost you less to mail a PC? I mean... I do collect them. ;)

Hi paloma! Welcome to Swap-Bot! So glad you're here! You are sooo going to LOVE it here! There are so many fun swaps, and this is such an amazing community of fun, talented, and creative people!

Welcome also to the 'I ♥heart♥ Mail Art - April' swap --- thank you for joining my swap! If you have any questions, please feel free to holler! Hope to 'meet you in the mail' often! :)

p.s. it is always a good idea to fill out your profile with as much information & detail as possible. All your likes, favourite colours, crafts, hobbies, wishlists, etc. The more specific info you have, the happier your mailbox will be! It makes it much easier for your swap partner to create/choose items that you suit you perfectly if you have a well filled-out profile. You will notice on most of the swaps that one of the main requirements is to have a well-filled out profile --- that is the case with this swap as well.

The more detail in your profile, the better the swaps will be for you and your partner!

Happy Swapping! :)
