Comment: I agree - I wish they taught "adulting" in school! >0< :P
Response: I am teaching my youngest. He has a bank account, he is learning about saving and is now in "personal finance" for math. I waited until now to put him in it because he is a senior and it should be a cinch for him! TY for the ♥
Comment: Thank you for the notecard. Baths are such a great way to take care of yourself. I use the Dr. Teals Epsom salts and bubble bath and it truly is the best. I must have every scent haha. I’m glad you are finding ways to enjoy life during these crazy and stressful times. Best wishes :)
Response: I love Dr Teals. Lavender is my favorite if I use it before bed and Eucalyptus if I am not feeling good. Thanks for the ♥
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter and the stickers! My favorite men's scent is also Old Spice but the "original". My allergies are so bad now that if Mike puts on the tiniest amount I will sneeze all the way through whatever we are doing-usually Sunday School. Almost every time someone will say, "Maybe you're allergic to Mike." They think it's a joke but hey don't know how true it is. LOL! Have an awesome day and stay safe!
Response: Oh no! I am so sorry you are allergic to him! Teehee. Have you tried other colognes to see if you are allergic to them as well?
Comment: Thank you for the nice note. It sounds like you had a nice 4th. I used to work in a booth at the state fair and was always thankful to be tucked away, out of the crowd. I love people watching so it was perfect! They cancelled the fair this year, which is sad but a smart choice. Take care!
Response: I, too, am a people watcher, so I totally get it. Hope you are well. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Kelli! Thank you for your note and the little bluebird notepapers. I have a very supportive husband too--yay for wonderful husbands who are amazing! I hope you will feel peaceful and loved today. Take care.
Response: Thanks for the heart, hunny! YAY for support from our other halves. That sure makes life easier ♥
Comment: We all have those times.. I totally and completely fell off my goal wagon.. but one day at a time! Small little victories are better than nothing. I feel like these letters sometimes help me find my balance now and then. I took a little break from hosting myself since there's been a whole lot going on. Hopefully I can start hosting again once things calm down. I hope things are going better for you ^^ one step at a time :)
Response: My goal wagon is being hampered by my meds, so I gave up on focusing so much on it right now. I really need my new goal to be 1 penpal letter out a week HAHAHA! Thanks for the ♥ hunny bunches!
Comment: I may be slowing down on some of these letter swaps a bit to be honest - I think I've just been kinda overwhelmed lately and I don't want to burden myself in case things get too crazy. I'm totally a home body these days too - would much rather be at home with my cat and some netflix most nights :P
Response: Note cards are much easier I have found. I actually just sent my last letter out today for a swap (Goals, to YOU hehehe), but I will keep signing up for note card swaps. Thankies for the ♥
Comment: I don't think I've seen that sampler pack you mentioned, but it sounds nice :) ! Esp. now that tea season is officially here :P I can't believe the Chicago Christkindl market opens up super soon >0
Response: It's near other boxed twinings teas. It's English & Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey and Lady Grey. I love the citrus hint in Lady Grey. Hit's the spot!
Comment: Such an awesome package! Definitely a pick-me-up after a terrible week >0< Thank you so much! I'm gonna use it all! Now to decide... do I pass some of these out to trick-or-treaters or as stress relief for my coworkers? :P!
Response: You can do as you wish my darling. I am so glad that you liked them! I wasn't too sure which direction to go in, to be honest.
Comment: Thank you for the teas! I loved your letter and will write you back, I understand the carpel, I have fibromyalgia so writing for me is painful and I too get too involved on here!! LOl Im addicted to tea swaps!! Heat still on here in Ga, hoping for cooler weather soon! Thanks again!!
Response: Yay! Glad you enjoyed the teas. I cant imagine FM pain. My bestie has it too. I'm excited to hear from you! Thankies for the heart.
Comment: I love this butterfly note card! Soooo pretty! Soooo many butterflies! My Grocery Outlet gets those cinnamon pine cones too. I think they bother the people that work there because they put them outside during the day! Hehe. Hubby might like ya not shopping at Walmart as much. :) <3
Response: I'm do glad you liked it. I saw it and thought of you! Thanks for the heart honey!
Comment: Oh my! I received your swap a while ago but it went to the bottom of my bag that I just cleaned out today! So sorry for the late rate, but thank you for your letter! I loved the idea of the cursive writing because not a lot of people know how to write that way anymore. I enjoyed reading about you! Thank you!
Response: I am very glad you enjoyed the letter. It will be a while before I do another. Just think g about it my hand hurts lol! TY for the heart.
Comment: Good to have you back! <3 The street corn you mentioned, that's MY fave - it's called an "elote" if you are talking about what I am thinking. It has mayo, butter, spices/seasoning, and some cheese on it! So tasty! It would be a dream come true to open an Etsy/similar style of shop and have it do well.
Response: Yes, elote. That is what Mike likes! I can't imagine corn and mayo LOL! Thanks for the wonderful welcome back, sweets! ♥♥♥
Comment: Well, meeting you was one of the craziest things I have done too especially being willfully chained into a pretend ship 10 mins after we met! We had a great time that day and I hope to see you again soo.
Response: I can not imagine that day being topped. It was so much fun, even the walking. Hehehehe! Thanks for the ♥ babe!
Comment: OOH - I need to check out that unicorn set you mentioned :) I think we have each other on Goodreads now. I need to get back on track myself.. well here's to pushing towards our goals this month!!! :)
Response: Now I am wondering what unicorn set I mentioned LOL! Ugh I hate my horrible memory! Oh and TY for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely letter on lovely letter set. I love the flowers. It's Valentines time of year...I have love on the brain. Your letters always arrive so fast! Thank you! 💗🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘💗
Response: I am so glad you liked it. I'm glad they come in quick! That means you can enjoy them sooner heheheh. Thanks for the 💜💜💜🦋🦋💜🦋💜🦋💜🦋💜🦋💜🦋
Comment: Thanks for all of the things that you sent for this swap. I am not able to take on any new pals right this moment but will keep your info & see what happens. Hope the New Year is treating you well!!
Response: I totally understand. I hope things start easing up for you, health wise. Happy swapping!
Comment: Ever since I saw Fellowship of the Ring, I thought that elvenses wasn't a real thing but evidently it is. elvenses is a midmorning break for refreshments as all hobbits would know! Thank you! 🦋💗🦋🦋💗🦋🦋💗🦋
Response: Hehehehe you are most welcome. Ty for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the friendship sheets! One of them I made over a year ago & it's nice to see where it has traveled! Don't worry, it happens to the best of us; I'm not offended or upset or anything! :)
Response: Ya know, I may have missed that. I made the envie before assignments were made.
Comment: Thank you for the note! I really liked your stationery - especially the delicate flowers and silver accents! Thanks also fo the extra note paper. Very cute! Hope you feel better soon!
Response: Thank you so much! I feel bad that I can't remember which stationery I used. It was either blue flowers or butterflies, and both are from Peter Pauper Staff on Amazon. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Just us this round! My holiday was pretty laid back, was nice being on vacay for a bit. How do you like the Side Kick? I was thinking of getting a Cricut or similar maybe someday.
Response: I bought a used cricut and never bothered figuring it out. Then the person I bought it from wanted to buy it back lol. I like the sidekick so far. I need more dies. Only have the ones that came with it for now. Its compact so I can easily move it, which i like. Ty for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the letter. I annoyed reading it and could read it just fine. Good luck to you with thanksgiving! Maybe you could make the pumpkin pie with a healthy sugar substitute or something other than flour? Maybe honey or something? I don’t know! Lol
Response: This year I am not going to bake a pie. We are going to do the ham (but, full disclosure, it's double glazed with maple/brown sugar lol). Honey is really bad for a diabetic, unless their blood sugar is low (it's pure sugar to our systems, unfortunately).
Comment: SORRY THIS IS SO LATE! I was going through a pile of "old mail" that didn't have swap titles/names on them to sort and see if I could figure out what it was from.. Turns out this one had a tuck in with your name on it. -.- so sorry!
Response: Hon, I am not even worried. TY for rating and the heart!
Comment: I really love this horse PC. It’s a great kind of Nordic design. I have this same box set and have difficulty letting go of them so I’m always happy to recieve them. It makes them easier to part with them. Thank you so much.
Response: It really does! I am so happy when I get one back that I really wanted to keep. Thanks for the ♥
Comment: Thank you for the cute owl. Yes when I found that meme I fell in love with it! I have finally, after 30 years, figured out how to MOST IF THE TIME get to the middle without yarn barf. Then other days it feels like my yarn keeps giving birth. Lol
Response: I totally get what you mean. I think sometimes it multiplies while I'm asleep. TY for the heart!
Comment: You are so lovely! Thank you so much. I hope you're carpal tunnel is okay. And I am super glad to hear you are taking care of yourself. My mom also has diabetes and it's not easy.
I absolutely loved your letter set. Do you normally type your letters on the computer instead of writing by hand?
As to your questions, I absolutely loved Korea. It was an adventure and it was awesome. And! I am thinking of getting a TH sidekick and/or a silhouette portrait. Not sure which though!
I will surely respond to your happy mail since it was so great. 💙❤
Response: I prefer to type them up when I can, yes. It is much easier, they just come out much shorter when I do, hahaha. I can't wait to hear from you. Thanks for the ♥
Comment: Fabric postcards are too much fun to make! I especially love a series. We did the alphabet and I made 2 of each letter, 1 to mail to my partner and 1 to keep! They are easy to make too! Thank you!
Response: Ohhh interesting. I may have to check out YouTube to see if I can find tutorials!
Comment: Sorry to hear about the pain you've been going through :/ You mentioned trying to start a subscription box - I wanted to make one for postcards! I'll need a bit of help and resources but I think this site would be a good way to advertise!
Response: I wish you luck, sweets. It was a pain in the tushie with ours, and we were advertising everywhere in the indie community. I think it's a great idea (pc box). I am always on the hunt for reasonably priced ones!
Comment: The butterflies on a vintage style postcard are great, and I loved learning those butterfly facts. I'm not sure about the last one though since I see butterflies flying in mid-afternoon on our steamy 95+ temps. I wonder how they keep themselves cool enough? Science can be interesting for me, IF it is about biology, etc.
Comment: I love the pretty note card and so many hydrate stickers! I am covered for a while. Thank you so very much <3
Response: Yay! You got it! When I saw on your profile that you were looking for some I thought "Heck, I have a ton!". I have a stamp that is 5 hearts that I stamp twice and I check them off for every bottle I drink. I was doing that before I got the stickers so they were redundant LOL!
Comment: Thank you for the crane card. We have a pair of these at our zoo that nest on the edge of the outside giraffe area. We see them on the outside cams a lot when the giraffes are out. The watchers have named them Hank and Ethel.
Response: Oh that is so cool! Glad you liked it. Thanks for the ♥
Comment: I LOVE the Picatso PC! Made me laugh. And, I think if we look hard enough we may find a Zig Ziglar quote about a cat!! ha ha! Actually he has a story about "not kicking the cat" but it's not a real quote! Thank you!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you so much for the ♥
Comment: Love the colors in this PC and I love the quote too! I remember a friend of mine had a dream one time that she fell off a building and hit the ground and bounced! Reminded me of that! Thank you!
Response: Okay, I need to stop finding quotes that bring up memories for you LOL! Thank you for the ♥
Comment: I've always wondered if it was worth it to order from Wish! Thank you for the extras!
Response: You are most welcome! TY for the heart ♥ For WISH: Just watch reviews of the items. People are pretty good at telling you what it's really like. Bought my husband a Deadpool/Dr Who tee (2x) and even though he fits in a large, it was still really snug on him. It's not normal t-shirt material he says lol!
Comment: Hi Kelli,
Thanks for the card, note and extras.
There are so many things that make me happy. The number one, for the past 19 months, has been my little granddaughter, Maureen.
Response: Thanks for the rating & ♥, Neal. I am sure that Maureen makes you extremely happy! Glad you liked everything :)
Comment: Hi Kelli, love it!💗 Just FYI , giggles, girl... I have no idea how it made it, lol, you sent it without a stamp... my post office is so picky, they postage due all the time, 😂🤪😎 and they didn’t notice !!
Response: Hahaha! That makes 2 I forgot to stamp. The next day my carrier brought one back for me to add a stamp lol!
Comment: Thank you for this swap. It’s funny. I like to wait and make dinner when my husband gets home so it will be fresh and hot for him! I like it even better on weekends when we get to cook together.
Response: TY for the ♥! I am trying to get used to this schedule of his. It's been almost a year (next month) but sometimes it's still a pain lol!
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter and the stickers. Look at the game SORRY. I think it might be similar to the one your grandmother had. Parcheesi (spelling??)
is also similar. Neither of these have marbles anymore but have wooden game pieces instead. Have a great day!
Response: It's kind of similar to Sorry. Don't know about Parcheesi as I never played that one. I just loved Grandma's marble board. It was HUGE! (think folding square card table). TY for the ♥
Comment: Girl! I can't even talk about Grey's right now. I'm not like a super fan of Kepner or Arizona but I do love their characters. I'm going to be so sad to see them go. Especially with Kepner all dark and twisty AND you know Jackson won't let her leave with their child...I don't forsee her ending being positive. I hope I'm wrong!
Response: Girl I totally agree about Kepner! It's totally going to be a dark ending. Maybe Arizona is going to go find Callie (though she is on Madame Secretary and looks way different!). We so need to talk outside of notecards LOL!
Comment: I’m sorry your not feeling well. I am a type 1 and i was sick all of Jan and feb. my readings was constantly low. I was in the hospital twice in feb, please take care of yourself. If you need someone to talk to about it I’m here.
Response: Thank you ♥ I went to the ER on Monday and the rapid strep was negative, and back to the doc yesterday and same results. She put me on meds anyway so that in case it's something else, it will help lol
Comment: So glad you are loving these swaps! I really have been enjoying the notecard/daily writing swaps lately. :) Amazon definitely has some decent stationery - will need to keep that in mind when I run out [which is impossible because I HOARD it lol]
Response: Well then where on earth do you get yours? Walmart here only has cards (birthday, sympathy, etc) in boxes. No more stationary :( (Thanks for the â™¥)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely letter to get to know you! I hope your health is doing well! I've been to Nevada a tonnnn of times for bowling tournaments. (The National Bowling Stadium is in Reno, I can't count how many times I've been there) and I was married in Las Vegas. :)
Response: I am glad you liked the letter. That is pretty cool about the bowling. I used to love bowling. I haven't been in a while. My grandma lived in Vegas and I grew up going there every summer from Los Angeles :)
Comment: Hi, Kelli! Thank you for the extra little goodies you included and your colorful card. I too am never sure about what to write in free write rounds. I also have a dog named Buddy! I have 3 dogs (one of who is also a dashsund!), 2 goats, pigs, a tortoise, chickens, peacocks, guineas, 2 turkeys, quail, golden pheasants, 2 cats, and lion head rabbits... yes, I have pets. Lol! Happy swapping!
Response: I live in a small rural town, so I want to own a place with property so that I can have a menagerie too! â™¥ Glad you liked everything!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! I'm so glad you had a great time during the holidays! Good luck with your new diagnosis. You're starting off with a positive attitude, and that's the most important step! I hope 2018 brings you and yours a ton of happiness and awesome new memories!
Comment: Thank you so much Kelli for the awesome variety of goodies! I especially love the peace sign charms and flattened bottle caps! It was just such a joy to open this package <3 Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!
Response: I guess that means I did good â™¥ Not bad for my first try hehehe. So glad you enjoyed it! You are most welcome!
Comment: Thank you so much for nice card... and sharing a great quote! I'm thrilled that you chose to participate in my "peace poster project!" Your envelope and the stickers that you sent are up there! You made my day!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! Hope you have a great week. Thanks for the heart :)
Comment: Hi Kelli, I love all the postcards you sent and I'm glad you wanted to send me something profile based, however, this was a blind swap which means you were to seal the envelope before knowing who your partners were. It's al good though because I really like the San Francisco cable car card a lot. Have a great night.
Response: Oh no, I missed that part, LOL! I am so glad you liked it. Thank you for the heart :)
Comment: THANX for the Beautiful â˜™ â¦ â˜” Happy â™¥ðŸŒ¹ Spring âœ¿ Pictures on everyone's Profiles! I am so glad you joined! â™¥ðŸŒ¹â™¥ðŸŒ¹â™¥ðŸŒ¹â™¥ðŸŒ¹â™¥ðŸŒ¹Blooms & Hearts to ya! Blessings for a wonderful SPRING! cc
Response: Thank you! (I am still missing a few I believe) I hope this issue gets taken care of, I love these swaps!) Thank you for the heart :)
