Comment: Oh my goodness. You're so kind and wonderful for sharing all the extra postcards with me. THANK YOU!! I love your story. I want to go to that cabin. Take me away blue light. LOL I think the theme of your story is very relatable in reference to everyone feeling extra pressure and needing release, comfort and safety. Well done. :)
Response: Thank you so much! I was kind of nervous about this swap because I have never done anything like it before. You are so sweet with the nicest comment. I really appreciate it! I have been having a bad day and this just lifted my spirits!!! Thanks again!!!
Comment: Melissa... nice job on the pennies! Just a quick word on sending them... next time you send some, do not place tape over the top of them. The tape pulls the whole design off when you remove them from the card! I painted the backgrounds white and then painted the picture, shows up better... but then when I sent them.. I put them on a bit of double sided tape so the design was not compromised... Good luck with your next ones... so nice to have a new type of swap under your belt!! 🙂
Response: Oh dear! I am so sorry. I wasn’t even thinking. Thank you for the rating anyway and the heart too.
Comment: Thank you for the cute "frog" card to color and pass on. Also for the extra card and the vintage Easter card. Love that sort of thing. Hope this finds you and your family staying well and safe. thanks again.
Response: Thank you for your rating and the heart. I’m glad you liked the Easter card. I love stuff like that too. Take care!!
Comment: This was so lovely to read, I absolutely adore the paper you wrote on. I think it's so sweet that your husband draws for you and that you chose to share his art. Thank you very much for such a wonderful swap and an extra thank you for the old photographs.
Response: I’m so glad you liked it!!! Thank you for the response and the heart too!! Take care
Comment: Great postcard! I love the satisfaction of finishing things too! The best is when I finish knitting something, a hat, a pair of socks, or a gift for someone. Hope you have a great holiday season!
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. Happy New Year!
Comment: Hi Melissa! Received the swap today & thank you for the recipes and the sht. of stickers, notecard,& 2 C'mas postcards. Out of the recipes, I don't care for possum. We don't hunt here for that. Only deer is all. I'm sorry, but yuck!
Response: You are welcome!! Ha! Ha! I didn't think you would like the possum that was just what was on that page number. I thought it was funny. They had this whole page devoted to that. It was from a vintage book. I thought you would think it was funny. Take care, thanks for the rating and heart!!
Comment: Thanks for the extras. The ad pc of the paddle board yoga sounds interesting. Our teenage grandson's loved paddle boarding on the lake at our last reunion. Actually, their mom's and dad's loved it too! Thanks.
Comment: I really enjoyed your letter and I believe your handmade envelope is my most favorite received! Thank you also for the interesting ephemera. I have been married 28 years, almost as long as you. I will be writing you back one day! Hugs!
Response: You are so welcome!!! Write me back, ok? Take care...
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcards and used stamps you included for me for R11's swap! Love them all! I think I might have missed R12's signups (been away from SB for a few weeks), but will join up again in R13 and move these 2 pcs along that you enclosed. Thank you for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Thanks a bunch for your email and the glimpse into your life. And, yes, you really life in paradise - I am getting kinda jealous since it's been winter up here forever and I can't freaking stand it any more! Desperately longing for spring!
Response: I hope Spring arrives soon!! Take care and thanks for the heart!
Comment: thank you, thank you, they are both wonderful. i love the barbie but i'm not sure she's allowed. i don't care i love her and the the other one is definitely up to specs. you did a great job. hope your hand feels better
Response: The barbie was just for fun!!! Thanks for the encouragement! My hand is fine now!! Thanks for the heart! Take care...
Comment: oh what a wonderful journey through a month in your life your journal provided me with! i reallyloved all of your background info, all the special little artifix items, recipes and details you shared! What a wonderfully happy, challenging, close knit family life you enjoy! Thank you so much for sharing with me, I feel I know you now! Your family sounds so awesome-and you are such an awesome supportive, loving person! Take care, stay happy & have fun swapping! :)
Response: Wow! I had no idea my life was so interesting. I love my life but I was afraid that it would appear boring to someone else. I have to say, I had so much fun doing that journal. I had never done one before. Take care and thanks so much!!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Hollywood card and the story of how you became a christian
Response: I took a little swap bot break. So many things happening here at home. This was a fun swap to get back in the game so to speak. I'm glad you liked the card. Thanks for the heart too. Take care and have a great week.
Comment: This package is amazing - you have nailed down my passions.! Thank you for caring soo much to seek out what I love. The booklet, from 1937!, is priceless! The 'Portucal' apron is going to be my clothespin holder (yes, I actually hang wash on the line-it's a ritual thing) I remember using dresser scarves like this - beautiful! thank you!!!
Response: I'm so glad you are happy with the things I sent. I love the graphics on that little sewing booklet. I was hoping you would too. Hanging wash is a great idea. Everything is so fresh. Take care and thanks for the heart.
Comment: You clever gal! combining swaps. I'll take the bowl for this swap - I was just thinking a few days ago that NO ONE has ever sent me china - one of my life's loves. and today, I get this from you! Love that you really read my profile
Response: I intended the bowl to be for the "Four Dollar Challenge." I left the price on it. :) I know it wasn't quite four though. It was hard to get right at four. I'm glad it didn't break! I'm so glad you like it. I thought it was so cute!!! Thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome package! you're a great shopper! I was married in Hawaii so the vintage tourist plate is super cool! <3<3<3
Response: I didn't know you were married in Hawaii! I just threw that in at the last minute. Yeah!! I'm so glad you are happy. I was hoping you would be happy. I had fun. Let's do it again. Ok?
Take care and thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: I love this postcard, Melissa, thank you so much. I love the purple, &the texture, and that you wrote more than "Hope you like it" on the PC itself. You have lovely handwriting. Thanks too for realizing the post office would want a 1st class stamp, since it's larger. Spring HAS come to MD - I have daffodils blooming in my front yard & buds on my rosebushes. Swap-bot makes me happy too, I'm SO addicted & it doesn't seem to be waning. Have a great weekend! :)
Response: I'm addicted too! Swap bot has brought so much fun to my life. Crazy! My teenage daughters want to get started too. I'm so glad you liked the recycled card. I was hoping you would. I loved it. :) Take care and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow look at all those buildings! What a place it must be to visit?
Response: I know, isn't it fabulous? I know your wedding day will be very special. I hope your honeymoon is everything you wish for. I love being married and find so much pleasure in making my husband happy. It in turn makes me happy. :)
Comment: Thanks for the Card, Love the look and feel of it. I hope I will be able to make the reverse side as good as what you sent. Will do my best though. In school this week so I'll be working on it this weekend, Look for it Monday or Tuesday in the mail :)
Response: Thank you for your kind words. I know I will love whatever you do. I'm looking forward to it. Take your time, no hurry here. Take care...
Comment: The package arrived last night and I opened it around all my friends. Everyone loved it just as much as I did! The quotes were wonderful and I can't wait to try those recipes! The perfume was lovely as well :] Thank you so much for putting so much LOVE into the package! :D -Krissy
Response: Krissy, I am so happy that you liked the package. I did put a lot of love in it. This makes me happy too. Take care and thanks for the heart!
Comment: Finally figured this out. Got your card, 3 little notes and card tag. was that tag made by you, tea stained? what are they used for? I've seen them here at home>used on cages at an animal auction>Thank you. I was confused because I thought you had to make the card>but she said no. I made 2 Iris folding cards for mine. Yours was cute as I have a little shi tsu, and other animals. Thanks. MaryAnn
Response: I'm glad you figured everything out :) Take care...
Comment: Love the city scene Christmas card !! Merry Christmas to you and your family ! My family spends one whole day making cookies and candy to give out. May your Christmas be filled with love, laughter and great memories !! Sandra
Response: Thanks for the sweet rating and the heart. I loved that city scene card. I love that kind of art. Take care..
Comment: Awww, kitty postcard. :3 Thanks for the great C.S. Lewis quote! It's a great one. I don't know what the meaning in the universe is yet, but I can't imagine there not being one. Someday I hope to find out. :)
Response: I know there is one!!! Keep looking. C.S. Lewis has some great ideas. :) Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for Vintage Love ATC it was really nice and the little extras I can definately make use of.Thanks again.Take care.Sorry I'm a little late on rating you,I'm very forgetful these days.hehe
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I'm new at these and I am learning lots. I am having so much fun. Take care,
Comment: The Restaurant Kungsholm postcard arrived just fine. Amongst my eatery cards is an inch-tall stack of smorgasbords. Have not looked at them for years but did this afternoon while adding your duplicate to my collection. Thanks for trying!
Comment: What a huge and luxurious bedroom. I can imagine it's a perfect place to retreat to after a busy day! It's very much a woman's boudoir, though, does your husband feel at home here? Or does he have his own room?
Response: Thank you! My husband hasn't complained about our room at all. He in fact has helped me hang mirrors and pictures etc. Quite frankly, I hadn't thought about it. He seems to be very happy there. I have three sons and they have a "mancave" where they play X-box and watch movies etc. I haven't taken over every room. :) Thanks for the heart. This was a fun swap.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATC. I don't drink coffee myself, I don't like the flavor, not in candies or anything, but one of my favorite things is when I go to my brother's in Germany, on the way home from the airport we pass and Eduscho factory and I love to smell the roasting coffee.
Response: I hope I didn't offend you. It was so hard to come up with a secret. I had a friend tell me years ago to always be a bit cautious with people who don't like coffee. I have never forgotten that. I really admired her and I just can't shake the advice even though it is simply crazy. Anyway, it was all in fun. I love the smell of roasting coffee too. Take care...
Comment: Oh my goodness, could you hear me squeal all the way from Florida?! You spoiled me absolutely rotten! I love everything! I'm going to have so much fun playing with all these goodies. Five zillion hearts for you! Thank you so much.
Response: I am so happy that you liked everything. As it was my first swap I was a bit nervous!!!! I had so much fun finding the things for you. It was my pleasure. Enjoy!!!
