Comment: will rerate when resend arrives.I am confused you said it was sent and lost then you said you would make and send another one. Whichever when something arrives I'll rerate. Lost mail isn't the end of the world its ok.
Response: I know... It is not because of you! :) I will send, it was just not only yours ATC lost and I really can not do it all again quick enough to satisfy everybody. I do not deleting my account just will take a break.
Comment: Hello Evgenia,
Thank you for your 3 gorgeous RED ATCs you created for me for this swap. Each ATC shows your wealth of skills in designing and creating ATCs. They are well-crafted and exhibit your attention to detail. Your ATCs will be a wonderful addition to my Red Themed ATCs. Happy New Year!!!
P.S. Thank you for the 6 postcards you sent me along with the ATCs. I loved how many of them matched the red theme. They will be a wonderful addition to my Postcard Collection.
Response: :) You are welcome! I am glad you like it!
Comment: Thank you Evgenia for the postcard resend. It's very pretty. I love the little gnome. Which Russian fairy tale is this again?
Response: It is "Uncle Au" -- http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xq313p_uncle-au-in-town-1979-%D0%B4%D1%8F%D0%B4%D1%8E%D1%88%D0%BA%D0%B0-%D0%B0%D1%83-%D0%B2-%D0%B3%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B4%D0%B5-marya-mouat-russian-animation-subtitled_shortfilms
Comment: Evia - I received your ATC/Envie today, for a moment I thought it was happy mail - thank you for all the extras! I absolutely love the ATC!! It's an instant favorite. You have a fantastic artistic skillset (I can see I will need to kick it up a notch - thanks for setting the bar higher!) And how lucky am I that you have a 1994 stamp of the Moon Landing! Thank you. Happy New Year. Dawn
Comment: Hi Evia, What an amazing envelope to receive today in the mail, Christmas Eve, thank-you so much. The ATC's are fabulous and I love all three and the greeting card is so very beautiful and the teas all look wonderful. Thank-you so much, have a wonderful festive season, stay safe and happy.
Comment: Thank you! Wow! Seventeen atcs I counted! Thank you. And a ton of blanks and postcards! My sister and I were delighted by your clever use of an old starbucks gift card in your atc! I love the dinosaur one! So cute. And the instant coffees will disappear very very quickly. ;) merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you so much for all your answers! They were wonderful and I had no troubles reading them!! And of course, thank you for the extras!! I will have to hide the starbucks coffee from my daughter :)
Comment: ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH! I LOVE ALL MY GOODIES! Too kind! I can't wait to suck back the samples of Starbucks you included! Thank you so much! Oh, you sent so many goodies I almost failed to mention my ATC! ;) I LOVE IT! Thank you!
Response: You are very welcome! Thank you for your rating and heart! Enjoy Starbucks, and I am very happy that you like my ATC! :) (Ratings like just below yours without any word make me frustrated when I do my best, but when I hear that I make somebody happy I am happy too! :) )
Comment: Evgenia ~ WOW!! Oh my word WOW! I love my ATC so much! I can not believe that with all the heart stamps I have I do not have the ones on the ATC! And the way you designed it with the mugs is AWESOME! Thank you so much and the extras are gorgeous! You really made my day!! XO
Response: Hurray! :) Glad to hear it! Thank you! :)
Comment: What a wonderful PC. . . and so fun that it is from your favorite childhood (and adult) book! It's always wonderful to have a childhood favorite carry over to adulthood. . . keeps a piece of your childhood with you always and everyone should have that! Thanks again for the wonderful PC ~~
Comment: Hello, and thank you so much for the awesome package I absolutly love the ATC's and the tea that was so nice of you... I do want to mention that it did come with postage due - they said it was a parcel and needed 1.15 extra postage, However I did not mind paying to get it I just wanted you to know for future reference, No worries, this has happened to me before too. Thank you again.
Response: :( Oh, they returned the same size package that I sent to Canada that day and I was surprise, but did not think it affected USA mail too... I am sorry, I guess they take the postage more "serious" now?.. Because it never happened to me before!..
I am happy that you like the ATC's, I tried too do my best :)
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! And an extra thanks for sending me one from zazzle.com, I have been looking for a place to sell my art and create art cards and products from my original images, this could be the answer! :)
Response: Oh, I am glad to help you! I use Zazzle and I like it most of the time! :)
Comment: Wow! You really extended the 46cents on the envelope you sent. All the wonderful note cards, the postcards(the lighthouses and old cabins which I love especially Thomas Kinkade), the wonderful tea, the buttons and novelties and the big fat butterfly pen to go with the note cards. If I could give you a hundred hearts, I would. Shirley
Response: If I send things in envelopes it is hard for me to stop stuffing them :)) If it is about to make someones day, it is even harder! :)I am glad you like it! :))
Comment: Oh my!!!!!!!!!!! What a great swap!!! (I just got back form my holidays and opened all the mail~~~) What a generous and thoughtful swapper you are! Strawberry tea?? I will have it tomorrow at breakfast! (I love berries). And the postcard is brilliant and the cat card is the topper! You should get 10 hearts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any many hugs!
Comment: What a nice package and the thought you put into it. The stamps, address lable , envelope,stickers and of course the contents.I especially like the postcards and the dimensional bird stickers are beautiful. Many thanks. You brightened my day.
Comment: Hello Evia, thank you sooooo much for the wonderful envelope full of goodies. I love all the sweet things that were inside and the stamps on the envelope so cute... you went way beyond.... Tack sÃ¥ mycket!!!
Comment: I love the fox! He really does look relaxed and happy. We once had a fox demonstrate hunting techniques right beside the trail we were following at the lunch stop on a tour in Denali Park in Alaska. He was completely unafraid, even with almost a whole bus tour watching him! Happy swapping!
Comment: L-O-V-E this postcard and the stamp! The stamp looks like a baby version of my cat Billy! Thanks for sharing your secret, I have a similar problem -- let's hope this swap helps us both!! Cheers!
Comment: Yes, you have sent me a couple of postcards of your cows, but, they are so cute...But, I was getting low on my animal cards,and for that, thank you so much for taking the time to send more than was required..I look forward in using them...
Comment: Hi Evgenia (what a beautiful name!), thank you for the sweet piano lesson card. I agree with you that Zazzle cards are great and I have no clue why some people don't like them. More for us I guess. :) All the best, Cynthia
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful cards, Evgenia. Each one is great, & I love that you shared so many interesting ones from Russia. The extras are much appreciated, especially your delightful Franscious & Lennard cards. Many extra â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ to you.
Comment: Thank you for the cute card. I would love to visit you and see your Highland cows. We used to have some living a few miles from our house and they were beautiful. I like the cat stamping on the envelope also.
Comment: Thank you for the carousel horse card, it is beautiful. I never thought about New Year's replacing Christmas as the major winter holiday in the former Soviet Union, but it makes sense now. And Russian Orthodox Christmas is after the new year, correct? Happy New Year's to you!
Response: Yes, Orthodox Christmas is on the January 7! :)
Comment: Merry Christmas from my house to yours! I received your card today very festive and your right all the special little things makes you feel Christmassy ! We have snow like crazy and more in the forecast -30 overnight last night! All the best for 2013...Peggy
Response: :) My parents in Siberia have the same weather and a lot of snow! I am glad my Mom coming here! :))
Comment: Thanks this arrived today, and I am very happy. Zazzle cards are fun. You sent a nice selection, and OMG, I forgot about Pierce Brosnan as a hottie... Wow! Nice cards.. I didnt even notice you were late, if you hadnt had mentioned it in your note, I would have not known, so sshhhh, dont tell anyone. The note is also a nice touch to any package. Sometimes I forget to send one.
Response: Thank you very much for your comment! It inspired me somehow -- I started feel a little tired from the swaps and thought even to take a break after the New Year (I have so much people to congratulate -- my friends, parents, kids in orphanages, old people in the senior care... In Russia, Ukraine, Belarus... ) But I read your comment, go back to your profile , re-read it (not focused only on postcards theme this time) , and feel very good actually :) Thank you!
Comment: I love that your PC is your own--I love personal PCs so much. It's a shame more swappers don't appreciate the extra effort but I absolutely LOVE yours! Thank you so much for sharing your story! :)
Comment: This is such a cool card. Cards like this really make my day! Thank you so much. I hope you decide to join round two of SMASHing postcards. Also, let me know if you ever want to do a private swap. I have lots of non-tourist cards.
Comment: WOW, you really outdid yourself..I love all the cards and especially those of your cattle and new calves..Also, the cards with your traveling toys are adorable..My daughter sent her toy around the world and the last person to have it,lost it.it never came back to her..It was the cutest clur hippo named "Henretta" At least she has all kinds of pics with her all the different places.. Do you have a special pc collection that I can send you some in return for all these extras?
Comment: How delightful to not only receive that terrific John Travolta celebrity postcard but the RAK mailman card, TOO! You are so kind... it made my day to find them in the mail when we returned from traveling (...sorry for the delay in rating).
Wish I could give you a bushel full of hearts... thanks so much!
Comment: How awesome is your card! I loved the ATC inspired card and I absolutely love the stamps. I love Little Women and I go to the nature preserve at least once monthly. You made me smile with this swap!
Response: I am very happy to read it! :) We have the farm at Kirksville where we do a lot of work to return land to prairies, etc. I love it! :)
Comment: thanks so much..i apologize for the late rate..i have been out of state for a few weeks taking care of my dad. it will take me awhile to catch up but i will conact you again for your address to write. or you can send it to me on the message board.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard of the "funny bunny" and for your story of seeing it for the first time. You sound like such a wondeful and interesting person. I wish I lived nearer so we might actually meet for a cup of tea.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card of Wood End lighthouse. I did not have this postcard in my collection. I would LOVE to see the needlepoint/crosstitch when you're finished - my eyes arent as good anymore to take on large projects ... Warm wishes â™¥
Comment: I LOVE the postcard. By far one of my very favorites so far. The fact that you added a cute dog sticker AND a dog stamp makes it that much more of a favorite. And to top it off, one of the dogs actually looks a little like my Henry. :)
Comment: I love the postcard and the quotes! I would love to see photos of your little homestead too, with prairies, wildflowers, and highland cows! We have a garden at our apartment here in Branson, but my family is saving money for land and dream of getting it soon. Sounds like we have some things in common. :)
Response: :) I have one picture I turn into PC via Zazzle, with one of our cows and bull. Want make more because now we have 4 little ones! :) I can send you postcard, and I will add my facebook page to my info -- you can come and visit me there to look at photos. There is mix of English and Russian :))
Comment: Thanks for the PCs and the hello kitty letterset and stickers...my friends kids love Hello Kitty so it will be fun to send that in the mail to them...also love how you decorated the envelope...very fun!
Comment: I'm not sure if you read my profile but I adore cats. Not only was it a cat PC but you used a cat stamp!!!I like that. I thought it was interesting you shared your kittens' name and meaning....I have a new (sort of) kitten named Neko which is Japanese for 'cat'
Comment: Evia, I am so sorry that you were disappointed with our zoo. I love it, and I have been by myself many times as well as with my family. I can't imagine what was happening that you felt that way..I would love to go to the St.Louis zoo, but since I do not drive, that is impossible.until a family member is here. Thank you for the postcard, and my daughter is also very fond of giraffes;
Response: :( Please, forgive me my words, I really did not want to upset or insult you and your feelings... I don't know how to express my impression... Like it was rather small areas and a lot of cages may be that reminded me that all animals and birds are not "free" there?.. Anyway, I apologize again!!!
Comment: Thank you!! I don't know where people find these awesome cards. I've never seen an I Love Lucy card before. :D
Response: :) I am glad you like it! :)
This one from the USPS site store -- under "stamped cards and envelopes" category! They have old TV show set, "Send a Hello", "Mail the smile", lighthouses, old cars,etc... ;)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcard! I love to read too, but can never find enough time for it. I like audiobooks for my daily commute! Thanks for the great matching postage too! It's perfect!
Comment: Thank you for your beautiful selection of cards. I loved them all. The bird stamps are wonderful, too. I especially loved the old lady quilting by the old sewing machine, as quilting cards are impossible to get over here. Again, thank you so much, as I really appreciate all of your postcards. :)
Comment: Thank you for some beautiful Cat pages-they are great! I may have to just start a Cat page journal with the wonderful pages from you and my other partner. Thank you so much for the extra cat goodies-love 'em! The postcards are great, and I have a cat fabric collection for a one day Cat quilt, so it is all purrfect! LOVE the cat postage stamps! you must be hoarding those! good for you.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty cat card! Your English is fine. I was surprised to hear that orange is apelsin in Russian, it's the same word in Swedish:-) Didn't know that, and I even studied Russian for a little while...
Comment: Thanks very much for t6 pc's--WOW!! You are so kind to send so many and I loe them all! The baby giraffe is my favorite, then te cheetah with babies. Wewent to the Denver zoo and the cheetahs had plastic bones that they were chewing on.
Comment: Hello there thanks for the Dog A.T.C. I loved the A.T.C so much very cool cute looking. Your dog is also very very very cute big time. I loved the little gum I always wanted a small gum like that.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful postcard! I seriously think Scottish Highlander cows are the best animal ever, and you would not believe how happy I was to see your postcard featuring them.
Comment: I loved the postcard you sent me! It's wonderful! I WISH I could get my hands on some beautiful postcards like that one!!!! :/ Thanks for sharing what you shared on your postcard. I can totally relate to you! Thanks so much! <3

Comment: Thank you for letting me know what your WONDERFUL correspondence was for. I really enjoyed reading it and getting to know more about you. I also enjoyed the postcards you included of your home country and present one too.
Comment: I LOVE your ATC. My cat died last week and I've been just a little sensitive where cats are concerned. I was kinda dreading this particular swap. But your ATC is soooo lovely and the beautiful and cute kitty things you included -- it's actually been very healing. I love cats and I think I may very well have another one in time. Thank you again for such a lovely, lovely surprise package. Wishing you good swaps always, you're a super swapper!
Response: I glag you like it! :)
My cat died this spring, and just several weeks ago I wrote to one of my swapping partners that I love cats but not ready yet for another one... Well, I am the happy owner of the orange kitten last 10 days! His name is Apelsin and he is sooo cure and adorable! I wish you will heal from your lost and have another fluffy friend soon!
(If I wrote something weird, just forgive me my English, please! :) )

Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful PCs for this swap. I really liked the one of the Missouri countryside, and the Hawaiian rain forest one was superb. . and the Russian nature art was beautiful. Thanks again so much ~~
Comment: Thank you for a terrific package! I love all the bits and pieces and I feel inspired to create something with them right away! Are you of Russian heritage? I noted your first name and your daughter's first name and that many of the stamps you sent are from Russia. My first husband was Russian and my eldest son is named Nikita..... Anyway thanks for everything!

I love name Nikita, if I would have another son, I would name him Nikita! :)
