Comment: I have relatives in the Greenfield area, Colrain and Shelburne Falls, so I've been there often! I absolutely love living in New England, I really would miss seasons if I had to move.
I'm intrigued about your animal dolls, do you sew by hand? This summer I'm growing basil and 1 cherry tomato plant in pots. That's about as energetic as I get growing veggies 😁
Thanks for the great foliage postcard. Stay healthy and best wishes, Mar/skinny52
Response: I sew the faces by hand and the rest with a machine. ;)
Comment: Hello Jenny, thank you só much for your re-send! It arrived today ✨ and I absolutely love everything. Is Keri Smith really your sister? How amazing!! Thank you só much for sending me wonder society stuff, I love them! Hope we can swap again in the future. And hope you can visit Portugal some day soon ❤️ love, Inês
Comment: Thank you so much for creating this gorgeous flipbook, I love creating these flipbook. I actually received it once from someone in Netherlands and I already knew how to create one before this swap. I used her flipbook as my example, but yours is very nicely put together, thank you so much!
Comment: Hi Jenny, it was a pleasure to know a little more about you.
I found all the details of the decoration of the letter and envelope beautiful. Thank you very much for the stickers and memos. Take care!
Comment: I am so sorry I haven't rated you sooner. I thought I had. I am still awaiting my second shot, its interesting to hear how you felt and how things are different in your country. Thank you for the gorgeous card, I love Japanese paper, this is just a special treat for me to receive such a pretty card.
Comment: JENNY!!! I can't believe you got my name! OMG...what a WONDERFUL swap! And yes-you and I are EXACTLY the same-there's no way I can only send 3 things! The fact you READ MY PROFILE (making you one of the very few people that have ever done that!) and sent those circus, horse and art nouveau/deco diecuts and stickers and the postcard...look at me! I'm a mess! I can't even form sentences. 😂 It's just that opening an envelope and seeing all the things you love...well...it's just the best feeling in the world. Thank you so much. You truly made my day and I love you for that!! 💕
Comment: Hello Jenny, thank you very, very much for your wonderful letter and the cute goodies. ^.^ The "Harry Potter"-PC you're friend made is amazing! And thanks for the explanation about your nickname; I truly wondered what might be its origin and I love such stories.
Things are slowly going back to normal here, too. What a relive. ^^
I wish you a wonderful week and thanks agoin for the swap!
Comment: Hi Jenny, things are getting back to normal in RI too, for the most part anyway. I am not fully vaccinated yet, so still wearing my mask! But, after next week I should be good to go. Thank you for all the goodies!
Comment: Jenny this is perfect!!!! I absolutely love the Spurs and these are some of my faves. I love sour patch kids the best but sour anything is delish. I love sour beers too. Thank you so so so much
Comment: Oh how I loved hour card. Doing pots and plants are my gig amongst ocean and landscaping...you are living my dream, house on the river...haven’t been to main but on our bucket list. Thanks for the memo pads and sticker.
Comment: I don't know what happened in transit through the mail, but the handwriting on the card was spotty and faint, and I can't read most of your message. :-( My name is legible, and the city/state/zip was, too. But I have no idea what message you wrote. :-( Glad it found it's way here.
Response: Sorry about that! I guess that it was very original being that it was extra flawed! I wrote that I got the postcard from the artist at a craft fair and that I really loved the picture and that I wanted to share it. It’s a neat image. Jenny
Comment: Dear Jenny, your swap was beyond gorgeous one can ever describe! Thank YOU so much! Omg your big tag was so sweet I can definitely use is to store my ephemera. And the mini bits that you included are wonderful. But the postcards nearly made me teary 🥺 they were SO precious, I will treasure them. I love authentic vintage finds!! Thanks for your sweet letter too. Take care. ❤️
Response: So glad you liked it! I hope we meet in the swap world again. Happy Spring! Jenny 🤓
Comment: I love everything you chose to send. I love that you went overboard. Thank you for everything. I love the flamingos and llamas and the card stock. Thanks. The envie was perfect. This made me smile! Thanks so so much
Comment: Guess what I got!!! Thank you for the resend. Everything is wonderful. Thank you so much 😊💛
Response: I actually did resend- perhaps it’s taking awhile because you are APO? I messaged you. All apologies for you not getting a message back- it was right after my 2nd vaccine and I wrote it and I guess failed to press send. Warmly, Jenny :) Oh yay! This is awesome!!!
Comment: Jenny, words cannot express how blown away I am by this postcard! You managed to elevate a simple Golden Curry package with stickers of all of my favorite things and a wonderful note. Thank you so much ❤️❤️❤️
Response: So glad you liked it! It was fun to make. Jenny 🥸

Comment: Loved reading about your home and weekend. Thank you so much! Bummer about your neighbors... if I was lucky enough to live next to a river, I would never listen to human music again! laughs. I hope your 2nd vax shot wasn't too bad. I'm thrilled to report I got my 1st yesterday!! Thank you as well for the extras, the art card and the postcard are amazing!!

Comment: Jenny, I LOVE the ATC you made. Oh my gosh your plushies have to be super adorable. I love this design. Also, your handwriting is like my brother's, he's an architect. I thought your writing was a font. Beautiful. You were spot on about the stickers. I LOVE them. The Dia de los Muertos guy jumped out of the bag...I was very happy. LOL Thank you for being a lovely partner. I hope to see you again! Happy swapping!
Response: You are quite welcome and I am glad you are happy. I am on Swapbot to spread joy- so enjoy :) Jenny
Comment: Thank you for the happy mail! I appreciate the cute handpainted bunny ATC, butterfly sticker sheet. And thank you for this awesome bunny/mushroom notecard. Finally a notecard that isn't "made in China" haha!
Comment: Thank you for some great stuff! My family is the only ones that call me Jenny; everyone else calls me Jen or Jennifer.
I am so jealous! I almost got to see Weird Al at our state fair, like 20 years ago. But for some reason I wasn’t able to go. Congrats on your little new furry friends!! I don’t have any that are grey, surprisingly. Lol Thanks again for a great swap!
Comment: Thank you for the nice postcard. My brother in law and his family live just about 10 minutes from Vermont, it’s so beautiful up there I hope to go back sometime! Sounds like a lot of fun to go mountain biking!
Comment: This is one of the most amazing swaps I have ever received. Thank you so much! Everything in it made me smile so much, and the Olympic pin was such a wonderful gift and gesture that the whole thing warmed my heart <3
Response: I am so happy you liked it and I knew when you mentioned the 2010 Olympics we had a love for the mascots in common!
Comment: Hey Jenny! Thank you so much for your lovely note and goodies! I'm sorry it's taken me so long, just catching up on mail now. I'm from Western Mass :) I grew up in Chesterfield. I miss the seasons!!! Florida is just hot lol. Well hope you & your cute kittens doing well!!! <3
Comment: I love this postcard, thank you! All of a sudden today I got tons of mail that was posted over a month ago. LOL. Anyways I bet it is so beautiful where you live. I’m going to Google the French King Bridge that you told me about! I hope the weather has greatly improved since you sent this!!! Take care!
Comment: Hi Jenny,
Thank you so much for the beautiful "Yellow" ATC that you painted. The depiction of the Goldfinch is absolutely FANSTASTIC!!! The goldfinch looks almost real to me. You are a very talented painter. I am looking forward to adding your "Yellow" ATC into my ATC Collection with the other COLOR Me Happy ATCs that I've collected already.
Today, in Colorado, mainly along the I-25 Corridor and then up North, we are having a major Winter Storm. It has been snowing since mid-morning and we are to get heavy snow through the evening and overnight. On Sunday, we are suppose to have snow all day and night. They are asking us to stay homes so road crews can work on the roads.
Thank you also for the little pocket of goodies. All the items are things that I can use in future swaps,
It was wonderful to have you as my swap partner. I am sure we haven't swapped before and its always nice to meet new swappers. Over the last 2-3 months, almost all my swap partners are new to my swap experience.
Colorado continues to have mail issues, both coming in and going out. Please be patient. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATCs! It arrived open on both sides, but the 3 ATC's are unharmed :) I love them! Going in my collection! Thank you very much
PS: THANK YOU for all the wonderful extras you included! So very kind
Response: Oh my! Sorry about the envie fail! Glad you enjoyed them! Jenny
Comment: Thank you for the cute drawing and all the stickers! I had a lot of fun reading your letter. I'm in college to become a high school history teacher. I would some day like to live in many places like you! have a great day!!!
Comment: Thanks so much!! I love all the ATCs, but especially the succulent one. Loved the washi on the envelope too- looking forward to reusing it. Thank you also for the lovely letter, we do have a lot in common! I love your plushie example too, that is a great way of putting love and comfort into the world.
Response: So glad you liked them! Hope you are well! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the great historic card! And for sharing your readings with me! I LOVE Jose saramago! Two years ago I watched Blindness in theatre. Incredible! And of course I know your sisters books. I sold a lot copy’s at work over the last years (:
Stay safe and tons of happy mail for you!
Comment: Omg! Adipose. Love! I recommend using modge podge or similar product to seal your PCs when you send them since the little details got removed while in the mail. I can’t believe it’s a Doctor Who pc! Love it though.
Response: Oh gosh! Glad you approve and sorry for the details getting fudged in the mail. Maybe you can touch it up? :)
Comment: Fabulous mail- I simply loved it😃 the information about where you live, the pictures, stickers ( love your hand made ones and your cool dolls- very artistic) were wonderful. It is so good to hear about how others made it through 2020 and plans for 2021. Thanks again, the art was absolutely yes my taste!
