Comment: Thank you for the Lake of the Ozarks card. Hope you got your air conditioning fixed. I had too replace mine a couple of years ago about this same time of year and it was really bad and just to think we used to not even have it and never complained.
Comment: Hi Maria! Thank you for the awesome package! I had so much fun going through it and yes I can use almost all of it!! My absolute favorite items were the multi colored/choice pen.....I grew up with those in the 70s and we used to fight over them! LOL! Also, the origami papers are beautiful and their size is perfect to make a million different things! Have a great summer!
Comment: Thank you for the card and stickers - I grew up reading Dr. Seuss in the 1970's - I had a book that was in English and Spanish, I think my mom was hoping I would learn another language, too bad it did not stick. I hope all is well with you. Take care!
Comment: Thanks so much for joining in the 100-Acre Fun! We had 24 players in all & 6 of the WOODS characters represented as follows:
- Seven Winnie-the-Pooh‘s
- Five Tiggers
- Four Christopher Robin‘s
- Three each of Owls & Rabbits
- Two Eeyore’s

Response: I'm glad you liked what I sent. The other envelope should be on it's way. :)
Comment: Thank you for this swap. <3 I really appreciate the time and love you put into it. The only thing I was worried about was the envi size and Maria has sent me another swap with the right envi size. Thank you lovely. :D Have a beautiful day.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely notecard.I do have one young son, and hoping for another one soon. :) I can't imagine how hard it'll be when he's grown and gone - I'm trying to treasure every moment!
Comment: Thank you for the cute little "puppy" note card. There's nothing cuter than a puppy except maybe a kitten. LOL. Actually I like all animals except snakes. So glad that Spring is just around the corner. Thanks again.
Comment: Hi Maria - thank you for the nice note. I enjoyed reading it. Good luck finding a nice car. I know how hard that is sometimes. I may be doing that very soon too :( Thank you for the die cuts too. I love putting those things on cards!
Comment: Thank you for cool stuff! And thank you for showing me prove.
Response: Would you mind checking your messages one more time please? I keep a paper record of each auction also and I have a post-it on mine saying "msgd them & said I couldn't mail before Saturday 3/4"
Comment: Maria, thank you for the awesome white swap items, I truly appreciate your generosity. I will use everything, especially the note pads and I am super crazy about the heart doilies, they are so pretty! Happy January!
Comment: Thank you for the cute Christmas card. I love the saying on the front, "All Hearts Come Home For The Holidays"...so sweet! Thank you for all the nice goodies too. This was truly some "Holiday Cheer" mail. Happy Holidays!
Comment: I love the note pad set so I'm going to go on and rate a 5!!!!! It didn't meet the swap requirements. It was to be wrapped before sending to your partner so we could open it on Christmas morning....... I love it so I'm looking over it but I just wanted u to no because there is harsher raters then me.........
Response: Thank you so much. I guess I got a swap messed up. That is very kind of you. Merry Christmas!!
Comment: My second Kentucky card, arrived on the same day. Oh lucky me. I lovingly refer to Kentucky as God's country. It is so beautiful. I once read "If you're lucky enough to live in Kentucky, you're lucky enough." That is so very true. Thanks for the sweet card.
Comment: WOW!! Got your letter. Love the fact that you used different papers for each page. I wouldn't have thought of that. I love the stickers! Thank you so much. I am going to respond to your letter in the next few days.
Thank you so much for your paper pack swap! I especially liked 1. The note on top to start (esp with your ID), 2. All the stickies so I could tell what pieces were there and 3. The gorgeous ?lilac? postcard. God bless you, friend!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable, colorful France-themed card (I didn't know that Birchbox made postcards to send :) I would buy them all if there were more) and good wishes, Maria! I am hoping for the fall weather to return and catching up on correspondence today. Hope you are also doing well! <3
Comment: Thank you for the envie! Ohh I want to open it but I am going to be good, and wait lol. I got my basket out and your envie is the first to go in. When I get my stocking out, I will put it in my stocking but for now it will go in the basket :D Thank you so much. Hugs
Comment: I absolutely love everything you sent in the Pen Pal swap! A little box of sunshine, stuffed full of fun goodies that I can't wait to use. Thank you! ðŸ’œðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’™ðŸ’šðŸ’›â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’š
Comment: Thanks for the Central Park PC! I love Central Park and have been there about 1/2 dozen times or so. Still haven't seen it all. The best part is the Museum of Natural History is across the street.
Response: Well, I hope to see that too. Thanks!!!!
Comment: BooYa indeed! :o) Thank you for such an awesome Halloween themed package. I totally love both the bags, have already started sticking the stickers, and I just closed my chip bag with one of the pumpkin clips!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. Thanks so much for the heart!!
Comment: Maria, first let me say how much I love, Iove, love the sweet note cards. And while I confess to being a wrinkley kid myself, I will refrain from opening my gifties till Yule. I live alone, so these are my holiday fun. You're a darling for being so generous. Many hearts. Thank you.
Response: Well, I really hope you will like them then. Thank you for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Thanksgiving stickers. I didn't have any! tip: make sure you read the directions of the swap it called for the stickers to be put in something to keep them together! I opened the envie and stickers went every where!
Response: I'm so sorry. I was kind of afraid I'd forgotten something. I'm glad you liked the stickers though.
Comment: Wow - what a great box! I love the journal - so pretty. The big red pen is awesome - I use red markers at work and this will definitely create some buzz around the office. I have never made jell-o before so I am excited to try it and the strawberry is my favorite flavor. Thank you!
Response: I am so happy that you liked everything. That always makes my day. Enjoy the jello!!
Comment: Thank you very much for the resend!! These goodies certainly deserve the label 'treasures' ^_^ I particularly love the teeny monster highlighters, very cute!! And super practical! Thank you much for taking the time to put together a lovely swap, I certainly appreciate it! Thank you thank you!
Comment: Time must fly as yours was here so quickly! At first I didn't get what time was on your card and then realized it was an aging process on the women silhouettes! Clever! Thanks for your interpretation on the theme!
Response: I saw it so clear in my head but I guess maybe I should have sent a better note. Sometimes you are just so sure everyone is going to see things exactly as you do lol. I'm glad you liked it though. Thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable card! My one suggestion is to use darker ink for the address info. It was written in a pink like ink which rubbed off and is almost unreadable. I'm really happy it got here though :D
Response: I'm sorry about the ink. I addressed them last Minute. Im really glad you liked the card. I thought in my
opinion Hello Kitty needed a mustache lol
Comment: Thank you for all the goodies you sent me. :) I finally got through everything. I appreciate that you got the package to me right before Christmas. :) That made me very happy because I was able to bring some of the gifts on the mini trip I went on. :) I hope you have a happy holiday and a great New Years. :)
Comment: Thank you. Love all the extra's in the pockets. Hint for next time, you should decorate each atc size paper in each pocket with embellishments, quotes, ribbon, lace, washi tape, etc. Still nice. thanks again.
Comment: Hi there! I got this in the mail today and I'm excited to open it! I am waiting until Christmas to open it so I will let you know how I like it then! It's going in my stocking now! Thank you so much and Merry Christmas
Comment: Hi Maria! Thank you so, so, so very much for the awesome zip lock baggie (filled with loads of cute things)! I enjoyed every single thing that you included, and I truly appreciate your generosity. Have a wonderful Christmas and thank you once again! ï»¿ï»¿â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: Maria, we got your swap today. What a fantastic package...thank you so, so, much. Thank you for thinking of Gratian, that was so sweet of you. He loves everything. =D He was so excited about the palm tree, perfect for parking his cars under. He took all his goodies(including the chocolate...lol)and ran off to his room to play with everything. He also took the spatula(he's very into cooking utensils at the moment...LOL), I have no idea why. =) I just love, love, love everything you sent me...I'm already wearing the socks, and set up the diffuser in my craft room. I'm so floored, I wish I could give you many, many, stars. Again...thank you so much. I hope to "see" you again soon. Take care. =)
Response: I'm so happy you liked everything. I try very hard on my swaps. Thanks for the heart!!!

Response: Thanks for rating and thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: Thank you for the nice note; I am a HORRIBLE housekeeper (I blame it on work and my husband!).

Comment: Hi Maria, Thank you so much for tthe lovely card and gift wrapped items for me and Jerry. We are going to open them on Christmas eve. I really appreciate the time and energy spent selecting and wrapping our gifts!
Comment: Thanks so much for the "delicious" envelope! One of my favorite things is fried apples! Pretty much the same recipe except I use whie and brown sugar mixed. You didn't say if you leave the peels on. I usually do. What kind of apples do you use? I love them all but like ol Granny Smith for fried apples,. Thanks so much for the swap. Love those little apple prints. Ian thinking of either tiles or coasters or maybe mount them on small wooden squares and string them w wide ribbon and embellish them and ribbon. Thanks for everything. I am going to look up the company that made that card. I want to see what other cool things they make.
Comment: That apple streusel cobbler sound yummy. Can't wait to get some apples and try it.Thanks for the stickers, the cutout apples, the facts about the apple tree, and the apple card. This package definitely brought a smile to my face. Thank you so much,and have a blessed day!

Comment: Thanks for the Vancouver card. You said you aren't to far from me, but you didn't say where you are. Just curious. Yes it has been stormy here. We lost power for four days last week. Had two trees come down. One was on the roof and caused a lot of damage. Took out our satellite dish and still don't have it repaired nor do we have phone service yet. We just thank God there were no injuries. Thanks again for the nice card.
Response: Sorry, I'm from KY. Sounds like you have had it rough.
Comment: Hi Maria. Thanks for your verse. I'm sure that's one of the most common problems there is. I know for myself, I just try to remember how much He loves us and if He takes care of the sparrows, then how much more you and I?!
Response: Thanks a lot and thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Wow! Love your package! So fun to get something in my mailbox wrapped in Christmas wrap. :o) And then to see it is a Christmas box! I put one of the wrapped items in my stocking, but I couldn't resist looking at everything else! What a fun package! I love it all! :o)
Comment: We thought the first package was lost! The first package came postage due, then 2 days later i received the "resend"! There are some really nice ATCs in here! Even though you had such a short time to make them, they still were nice. Thank you for being so nice in your emails!
Comment: Thank you SO SO much! I love the package. It was so much fun to open. The cat nativity is definitely unique! I have never seen anything like it! I love everything you sent. Thank you very much. You have spoiled me. :-)

Response: You're welcome. I wish I could remember what stationery I used! :)
Comment: Thank you Maria for your note, the lighthouse postcards - beautiful artwork, best of all I have wanted the USPS postage printed card showing the prancing deer! Love it and I will keep this special card for my collection. Great swap!
