Comment: Oh, Sofia, what a lovely watercolor postcard you created, and so beautifully matted and ready to be framed & hung on the wall beside my desk. Thank you so much. I signed up for some introductory watercolor classes here last year but, like everything else, they were cancelled due to the pandemic. Perhaps I'll try You tube instructions like you did.
Response: Glad you like it. You tube instructions are great to try and learn new things
Comment: Your card arrived today which is really nice. :-) Perfect timing.
I am prepared for christmas, but i think it doesn't really make a difference as i will spend the holidays alone.
Thank you for the lovely card and Merry Christmas to you too!
Comment: Hi Sofia. I apologize for the late rate. I found your envelope in a bag of junk mail when we were cleaning house. It was a great surprise but I do apologize!! Thank you so much for the lovely bookmarks and the tea. I will color them with my daughter tomorrow on Thanksgiving. I hope you and yours are staying safe and enjoying a wonderful holiday season!! <3
Response: Glad you have found it :) Thank you for the rating and heart
Comment: Hoi Fieke, heel erg bedankt voor je 3 soorten thee! Je had dit niet hoeven doen, maar ik ben er wel heel blij mee :) De post is hier momenteel heel traag, dus hopelijk vroeg je je nog niet af of deze swap wel zou aankomen. ;)
Be safe! Groetjes!
Response: Blij dat het aangekomen is. Ik vroeg het me inderdaad al af of het verloren gegaan was :)
Comment: Super bedankt voor het gave Houston Texas kaartje, ik had deze nog niet in mijn verzameling!! Ik ben in 2008 5 1/2 maand in Texas gewoond voor studie vandaar dat ik specifiek Texas kaartjes spaar.
Comment: Your lovely envelope arrived in my mailbox today. Great card, fall goodies, and tea too. I’m going to try the organic green, and my husband will try the earl gray green. I like walking in the leaves too. Thank you for a wonderful happy mail day! 🍁💕
Comment: Wow! Thank you SO much for your gorgeous bookmarks, and I can't wait to try the teas, especially the Forest Fruits one you recommended. I have already put the watercolour bookmark to use. Stay well x

Response: You're welcome. Thank you for rating and the heart
Comment: I had not received the original postcard FIeke sent, so she sent another in place. Today I received both. The original arrived unscathed, and the resend came in a USPS "We're sorry" bag torn in half. Hey, it happens. Lol. Thank you for both cards. I've sent you a PM requesting your address so that I can send you a postcard in return since I did receive both. Have a lovely day.
Comment: I love the zentangle hair that you did on this peice. I've done zentangle hair before but mine was so drastically different from the one you sent me this is 1 of the things that I love about swapping. Seeing new ideas and old ones reinturperted uniquely. Thank you

Comment: Merci beaucoup pour la carte! Bien sur je pouvais lire ta carte- Je suis prof au college...je ne sais pas si les adolescents en Belguique ecrit comme les aux EU, mais je suis expert en lisant toutes sortes des orthographes! Je n'ai pas vu aucun faute, non plus. Il y a 20+ as que j'ai etidudie le francais, donc il y a trop de fautes sur les miens que j'ai envoye! (et aussi je ne sais pas fair les accents avec cet ordinateur!)

Response: Dank je voor je beoordeling en hartje :)
Comment: What a delightfully fun PC! Thank you so much for brightening my day with those happy frogs, Sofia. I really appreciate that you sent it to me in an envie, but I think, considering the subjects, that you could say they came "naked" after all! I'm glad you are enjoying warm sunny weather. It is very hot here and hurricane season has officially begun.
Comment: Merci beaucoup pour la carte de la Roumanie. Je n'y suis jamais allée non plus mais j'espère bien qu'un jour j'en aurai l'occasion. Il fait très chaud aussi en France actuellement mais nous avons aussi beaucoup d'orages
Comment: Thank you for the lovely hand-drawn lily-of-the-valley. What a sweet tradition you all have in Belgium! I never thought of them as bearers of good luck. I have some in my front yard but I didn't see them this year - I suspect they were overwhelmed by the wild geranium that also grows there.
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the rating and heart :)
Comment: Thank you for the nice card. It's cool you added a plastic sleeve, and it was sent unharmed. Sorry for the delay on rating. I do recall receiving your wonderful post card, and hand made as well!

Response: You're welcome. We have a cabin there so I was on holiday in our cabin ;)
Comment: I finally got your letter with the ATC - thank you for making them a second time - I wish the post was better!
I too made a Scotland ATC but I enjoyed yours more than mine! I also liked the picture on the Tanzania one.
Comment: Another beautiful piece of art from you! Thank you so much! How did you make the homemade embossing paste? I am wild about birds so you can never miss by sending me one! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I mixed glue, talcum powder and water. You can find it on internet ;)
Comment: Dank je wel voor je schattige kaartje "zwart/wit met een beetje kleur"
En ja, ik heb kunnen genieten van het zalige zomerweer: ik ben afgelopen weekend met 8 vriendinnen op Texel geweest. Wij hebben vrijwilligerswerk op de basisschool van de kinderen gedaan en ons clubje bestaat bijna 15 jaar. We hebben genoten!
Response: Graag gedaan. Vrijwilligerswerk geeft enorm veel voldoening hè.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard! And I love rcving postcards in clear, crinkly cello "envelopes"! I love it! Ididnt take it out of the sleeve but I did run my fingers over the postcard on the inside. lol Thank you!
Response: You're welcome. I always send my handmade postcards in cello envelopes. So it is still sent a bit naked and won't be damaged during transport
Comment: Hello. I wanted to thank you for re-sending your swap. It was very thoughtful, and I appreciate your sending so many wonderful things and using such a lovely stamp. I especially enjoyed the Dendermonde pamphlets. Sad that the first one is MIA, thanks again for making it better. Diane

Response: No problem. I'm glad you received it and that you like it ;)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful violin postcard! I do play the violin, but piano and guitar are my main instruments. I started taking piano lessons when I was 7 years old and started teaching four years later. I was a piano teacher for most of my life, until I lost a lot of vision in one eye. thanks again!
Response: WOW great you can play those instruments. I can't play any of them
Comment: Sofia my dear, thank you for my PC, with the lovely flowers and butterflies, but especially for mailing it in a plastic bag )zero damage),
I'll proudly display it in my journal book.
Response: Thank you for your nice comment and heart :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely ATC, and for the extras you included <3 I received it during the past few days but I was away from home, so I am rating you today that I came back and found it :)
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the rating and heart
Comment: Thank you for the lovely blue bundle of goodness! I had such a nice time looking through and finding all the little surprises you tucked in for me, and I'm looking forward to using everything in my pocket letters and mail art.
Comment: Thanks for this wonderful owl postcard! It made it all the way here in good condition. In Alaska, there are about 200 earthquakes a day, but we cannot feel most of them. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: you're welcome. I would be scared knowing there are so many earthquakes even if I don't feel them.
Comment: Thank you for the unique postcard Sofia! I noticed on your profile that you have CFS, too! That's what I live with as well (as well as a few other things) but its certainly the most limiting illness I have. Wishing that you will have an improvement in health - send me a message if you ever want to swap directly or talk!
Response: Thank you for your nice message :) You can also send me a message whenever you like. Hugs
Comment: Awesome postcard and stamp Sofia thank you very much, new to my collection also. The weather in my area is still cold and stormy but no more snow thankfully. I hope that your weather improves soon too :)
Response: Glad you like it. We already had some nice weather last week :)
Comment: Hey, leuk post uit Belgiië. Bedankt voor de zelf gemaakte kaart, er zit heel wat werk en geduld in. Bedankt! Nog een warme avond gewenst. (Brrrr net thuis met te fiets, veel te koud naar mijn goesting)
Response: Graag gedaan. Ja het was koud hé deze week en gisteren sneeuw maar ik heb toch liever dit l-koude weer en zon dan regenachtige dagen hoor ;)
Comment: Thanks for this amazing postcard (and stamp!!). I only know New Orleans has the huge Mardi Gras celebration. There might be smaller, local ones too but nothing so big. I hope you enjoyed yourself if you went! Looks like a lot of fun! Have a wonderful week! xxx
Response: In Belgium almost every village has his own carnival. Although I'm not a carnival person I like to watch the festival but don't participate :)
Comment: Lieve Sofia,
Heel erg bedankt voor de lieve leuke post die je me gestuurd hebt. Beide kaarten vind ik mooi. De 1e vond ik prima. Ik snap je twijfels want ik vind 't ook best lastig. Maar voor mij was die 1e prima. Dus extra hartjes voor beide kaarten. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
Comment: Sofia, thank you for the great postcard from the Belgium coast. It is a new one for my collection, so I am excited. Love your quote "Never let your fear decide your future". So true. Thank you, Shirley
Comment: Thank you for your pretty card. I like any coloring card that is colored and sent to me. The springlike flowers are really nice especially for this week as we have had frozen rain and Icy streets 2 times already this week.
Comment: Sophia, I received your Green Envie swap today and I love all the things you chose for me! The green dotted envelope and dotted ribbon, the lattice paper and all the green papers, and that great green postcard!!! I especially lived the packet with the feathers, the gems and the little green leaves! Thank you do much for brightening my day with fantastic happy mail!!!
Response: You're welcome. Glad you love what I have sent :)
Comment: Dank je wel voor deze mooie swap. Die citroentaart ga ik zeker uit proberen, lijkt me erg lekker. Je kaartje met de vlinder vind ik heel erg mooi en inspirerend. Heel attent om dit thema voor mij uit te kiezen, ik ben er erg blij mee.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC. I love the cute snowman, reindeer and beautiful golden colors! And thank you for the extras and the nice postcard. It was nice to hear a little bit about you..... <3 <3 <3
Response: OMG It took more than 2 months to reach you! Glad you got it.
Comment: What a delightful ATC you sent me! I love the colours you used and you even managed to find a moon stamp! Thanks for the extras. I'm not sure what I'm going to use the scratch paper for yet but I'm looking forward to using it. I love that you included a dictionary page! Is it Dutch to French? I love it ðŸ’š
Response: You're welcome. Glad you like it. The dictionary page is Dutch to French. It's almost vintage :) More then 25 years old, I used it when I was in college :)
Comment: I've just come back home and I found your 2* package. Thank you so much for being such a lovely partner! And thanks for your cards, they're beautiful ðŸ˜Š Especially the one with buttons and the one with stamps
Response: Wow this one arrived in only 3 days ! Glad you like the ATC's
Comment: Sofia, thank you for the beautiful swan postcard, they are truly beautiful birds. 2018 has started out be extra cold and we have had one snowstorm and are expecting another this evening. Not seasonal at all. thank you for the "S" postcards. Shirley
Response: Glad you loved the postcard. Thank you for the rating and the heart

Comment: Dank je wel voor de schattige kaart met bruggetje. Ardennen, heerlijk ook voor ons voor een korte vakantie, niet te ver weg. Was er niet lang geleden met mijn zussen. We gaan 1 x per jaar een weekend samen weg met z'n vijven. Zo leuk.
Response: We hebben er nu een chalet dus zijn er dikwijls vooral in de zomer :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful lenticular postcard! They are my favorite to send and receive. I don't find them often but when I do I get so excited and try to buy as many as I can find!
Happy New Year!
Response: I also love them but they are indeed difficult to find. I found them on a fleamarket and bought them all :) Happy 2018 !
Comment: Thank you so much! It is winter here and we actual have seen some snow flurries, though its rare in Mississippi for us to have a snow that actually sticks to the groud. Up in the northern parts of the USA they have snow on the ground already!
Response: There is still snow in the French part of Belgium in the Ardennen. But in Flanders all snow is already gone :(
Happy Holidays !
Comment: So nice to get a Cat-Mas card from you! Very Cute and love that it is in your native language! And a stamp on the envelope for my postage stamp collection! Thanks for sharing a bit of your holidays with me and Merry Christmas to you too!
Response: Glad you liked it :) Enjoy the Holiday season !
Comment: Love the Blue Tit and bird house, and how awesome that you had some nesting! â™¥! Locally, we have Bush Tits, they are tiny grey birds: cute & adorable, but nothing like the beautiful bird you've got! Thank You.
Response: Yes they where really adorable ! Have a nice day
Comment: Sofia---what a wonderful 3-D postcard! I didn't know such cards existed and wonder if they are accepted in the US postal service. This is a beautiful card, and I am going to look into finding them online perhaps. Have a splendid Christmas and a blessed 2018!
Response: I have found them on a fleamarket. An old lady had 10 of those cards so I bought them all :) She only askes 1euro (is 1.20 dollar) for those 10 cards so I made a good buy hihihi
Comment: Hello Sofia! From what I can tell, the ATC you sent was cool accept every single shell is crushed in the package and on the ATC because you did not take care to protect it in a bubble mailer or package. For future, shells off the beach must be bleached if you're going to send them...they stink otherwise. I appreciate the idea and I am sorry that I cannot enjoy the full beauty of it. Thank you for the paper extras.
Response: So sorry :( . I will pay attention next time to protect them. I washed the shells with soap but next time I will bleache them. I guess we will be swap partners again in the future and then I will include a new one. Happy holidays
Comment: Dear Sofia
Thank you so much for the delightful swap. It really was a case of "happy post" . I was so glad to receive two ATC from you and the smurf ATC and clipart is too cute.
Comment: Card arrived day after Halloween! :) This year we didn't do anything for Halloween. First year of being empty nesters and still getting used to not having the kiddo around to help with holiday decor. We never get any trick or treaters out in our neighborhood. I wish we did though, cuz we bought lots of candy! haha...Thank you for the multi view card of Val d'Isere looks beautiful!
Comment: awesome ATC! Thanks for the effort and creativity! Love it and the extras as well â¤â¤â¤
P/S: Singapore's weather is really just 1 word - Hot. imagine summer all year round with occasional rainfalls. I do wish we had 4 seasons - mostly hoping for longer fall. ðŸ˜‰
Response: Thank you for you rating and nice comment. I understand what you mean, I love summer but I'm glad we have 4 seasons :)
Comment: Super bedankt voor je ATCtje. En ja hier is en is het de afgelopen dagen ook schitterend weer geweest. Hier in Nederland hebben we ook niet echt veel Halloween spulletjes, alleen wat decoratie in een aantal winkels. Ik heb wel wat halloween tape en stempels enzo op Ali express gevonden.
Response: Daar zal ik eens op zoeken, Ik betrouwde die site niet echt maar ik weet dat er veel te vinden is en dat er ook veel besteld wordt. Bedankt voor je beoordeling en en hartje :)
Comment: Wait.... Didn`t you wrote in your rating for my Disney PL, that this was the first one you ever got? How many Pocket Letters did you made, already?!? Your Halloween PL is amazing!!! I love those bead-thingies (don`t know how they are called in English) because I used to make them as a kid and some people (like you) can make so cool stuff with them! You were so creative... This is really a fantastic Halloween PL!
And thanks a lot for the goodies! The ribbons are so cool! Never saw something like that around here...
Thanks you so much! :D
Response: This was my second pocket letter. I never loved those bead thingies when I was young but now I do :) I found some great ideas on pinterest so I started making things with it. I started making ATC a few months ago and now I start making pocket letters. Already found some great ideas on Pinterest :) By the way the Ribbons are in fact lace to make a scarf but I didn't know how to knit it so I use it as ribbon hihi
Comment: Dank je wel Sofia voor de mooie ATC. Ik was een paar dagen weg dus het was een extra surprise dat je envelope met al het moois en extra's op de mat lag. Ontzettend leuk nu ook van jou een ATC te mogen ontvangen!!! Thanx!!!
Response: Fijn dat je het mooi vond :) Dank je voor je rating en hartje
Comment: Thank you so so much for the cute greyhound ATC - we loved it and laughed so so much ... in fact we are still smiling - thanks for making our day so happy. P.S. the greyhound even looks like our Rex.
Response: I was also smiling when I made this ATC because it reminded me at the greyhound we had :-)
Comment: What a nice swap. This was my first bookmark, and itâ€™s so cute. Stamps are cool. I got a card once that was done in stamps. Eager to use them. I have never seen a layered postcard. How unique. Thanks Sofia.
Response: Thank you, i'm glad you liked it. I really love making layered postcards :)
Comment: Not only did you make my day but my oldest son helped me open it and he was just as excited as I am! I love love love everything you included! I absolutely adore the stamps and post cards along with information on your area. We plan on making the pizza recipe this Friday for our annual pizza and a movie night! Thank you again for making our day!
Response: So glad you like the package and the pizza is njammie :)
Comment: Hi Sofia, thank you for the beautiful pc of butterfly and clover. Lovely. I'm with you on the Autumn. I like the sunshine. Last Oct we set a record for the Oct rainfall. Everyday , save for 5 days in October it rained. So grey and gloomy...Happy Autumn swapping to you when it arrives. Blessings of peace love light.
Response: I'm glad you liked the PC. Last week we had an Indian summer but now it's also grey an rainy. Take care
Comment: Thank you for a most wonderful swap! I love your drawing very much and have it up in my favourite craft corner. Your atc is incredibly creative. I love how resourceful you were with finding circus like items for the swap, even though you stated you didn't have any circusy things. Cheers to you! It is a beautiful little package.
Response: Thank you for you nice comment :) and I'm glad you liked it
Comment: OH, I was SO hopeing I'd get a hedgehog postcard! We do t have them here, but some people do have them as pets. I'd love to have one one day and have a tiny fenced in area in our yard where he could play on sunny days! Thank you so much!
Response: Glad you like it. There are one of my favorite animals :)
Comment: Liked this image.
Please include the number of the swap (#32 in this case with the swap name), hosts usually have more than one swap with the same title but different numbers and it can take a while to go through them to find the correct partner.
Response: It was one of my first swaps I found out later what the numbers meant. Sorry
Comment: Dank voor je mooie kaart. De Lakenhalle is leuk voor mij omdat ik alles verzamel (postzegels en ansichtkaarten) rondom textiel. Ik heb al een aantal postzegels met oude Lakenhallen erop afgebeeld. Nu dus ook een kaart. Wij zouden graag eens naar de Katuit komen. Is het elk jaar? en op welke datum? Kun je me dat laten weten? Dank je.
Response: Tof dat je de kaart leuk vond :)
De Katuit is idd ieder jaar op de laatste donderdag van augustus rond 19 uur. Op 24 mei 2020 is er de Ros Beiaard ommegang. Deze is elke 10 jaar en is voor elke Dendermondenaar een hoogtepunt :)
Comment: Super bedankt voor het prachtige kaartje, ik kende het boek niet maar een boek met de titel 'En toen zei de draak' Een reis om de wereld in sprookjes dat klinkt natuurlijk voor een sprookjes en fantasy liefhebber meteen al heel interessant. Ik ga er eens naar zoeken leuk voor mijn neefje en nichtje.
Response: Ik ken het boek zelf ook niet maar ziet er idd leuk uit :)
Comment: OMG, I will never send out another colored postcard again. You put me to shame. It was so awesome. You are a true artist. Thank you for the info on the Horse Bayard. It was sad, but interesting.
Response: I'm glad you liked it. You made me blush with such a nice comment.
Comment: Thank you for the Pee C that arrived today. :-)
Response: oh i'm glad it arrived. It was my first Maxicard and they looked strange at the postoffice. At first she didn't want to put a stamp after I explained what is was then she stamped but I was afraid she wouldn't send it.
Response: Sorry you didn't believe I colored it by hand but I took it as a complement :)
Please look at my facebook page now I updated it and put all my handmade cards from the last two weeks also yours ;)
Comment: Wonderful, beautiful!! Excellent!! So fun and talented are you. I would add hearts, but I am at the computer and not on my phone... I will mount this in a very special place!!! Thanks for all of the extra goodies, too Karen ðŸ˜ŠðŸ˜ŠðŸ˜ŠðŸ˜ŠðŸ”ˆðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸ
Response: Thank you very much for your nice commend :)
