Comment: Thank you so much for the chunk. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to rate!! Peppermint hot chocolate sounds good today because we've had a chilly one here in GA. I usually drink my coffee black, but I love fun coffee drinks with all the treats in them too! I hope you are doing well and having a nice spring!!
Comment: I do not not not drink regular Mountain Dew, but I love love love the special flavors. I had one once that tasted like cotton candy. I made a few people try it - universal hatred! But I thought it was great. My husband and I love Taco Bell Baja Blast. And I love one of the old Berry Citrus Game Fuel flavors. We just bought a box of a new "Spark" flavor that's supposed to be raspberry lemonade. I'm guessing we'll like it. Thanks for the chunk!
Comment: Thanks for the cute sparkly unicorn chunk!! I'm glad you sent me a message about it because my 6 year old daughter ran off with it. She liked it so much!! Thank you! I hope you are doing well!!
Response: So glad she liked it! Happy it got to you okay. thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the great card just in time for shark week :) Not sure what happened to the first one but I did have my mail on hold while I was on vacation so you never know. Hope you are having a great summer!
Response: Thank you and so glad you got one. My mail carrier told me not to put my mail in the box closest to me because it seems some kids are putting trash and drinks in and it ruined some mail. (I live where there is a "Mailhouse") This was disappointing to hear, but now I just drive to the post office and drop off my mail there. All of those I sent June 7th never arrived and Im thinking that may have happened. They are putting up cameras in the mail house so I hope it stops! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Have you ever had Texas chili peppers? I've never had them ha! I love how you decorated it with T stickers, I'm adding that to my future swaps!
Response: I haven't heard of them but they might just be regular chili peppers in Texas? LOL Glad you liked the Ts I like saving my alphabet stickers for this swap. Thanks for the heart and the nice comment :)
Comment: Thank you for the Toy Story postcard and your nice message. I agree, Disney has come so far in animation from where they started. My granddaughter had a Slinky Dog and loved it! Such good memories! :)
Comment: Hi Cate! What an awesome pc and I loved the space jokes! I will have to share those and listen to the groans!! LOL! Thanks for the fun Happy Mail! Wishing you all the Best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I got to spend a snowy weekend under a blanket with some coffee and an excellent book just a few weeks ago. We rented a cabin in the mountains for our anniversary and it's been the only real snowfall california has gotten. It was a nice little getaway but no way could I live in snow. I hope you had fun building your snowman.
Comment: I love this PC! Thanks! I had Simon & Garfunkel on my list too, but I have seen them--long, long ago. They were incredible. I wish I'd been able to see Simon's last concert in Central Park. I think if I'd heard about it in time, I'd have considered traveling there to see that. I've never been to NYC, but it's been on my list for far too long!
Thanks for the card and list!
Comment: What a mystery!! Do you think Mtn Dew will eventually tell everyone the mystery flavor? Btw, the chunk was so brightly colored, I loved it!!
Response: Im not sure if they will tell anyone. I feel like last year they never did but it was the same flavor. I had to make the packaging into cards for this swap becuase it felt like it was meant to be :D SO glad you liked it!
Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard! Not only do I love the photo on the front, the Elizabeth Barrett Browning quote on the back couldn't be sweeter. My condolences on the loss of your dog. I know how deep that pain runs. Thank heavens for happy memories like walks in the woods! Nice job. Thank you for swapping with me. :-)
Response: Thank you for your kind words :) I am glad you enjoyed the postcard
Comment: I love that the stamp matches the card! Very thoughtful. I have been to the Big Island--Hawaii, but nowhere else, so this is also on my list of places to go. I hope we all get to travel again soon!
Comment: I like your SwapBot
/ID stamp. Did you make it, or is that something you can buy? I love the font. Stay cool, and thanks!
Here is the link to the stamp. Thank you for the heart. I really like it and its not too expensive. I love mine. I want to get some different ones soon too.
Comment: Such a lovely collaged PC! Thank you so much for the time, love and effort you put into making this PC for me:) It actually has inspired me! Happy swapping.
Response: Thank you so much for your very nice comment about the card I made. I am so happy you enjoyed it and I had a wonderful time making it. Your comment made my week! Thank you for heart and joining my swap :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the cat-themed chunkie! My cat-loving 6yo couldn’t get enough of this one and I have told him his superhero name would be ‘tiny tiger’ lol. The vintage stamps were gorgeous too!
Response: So glad you and your 6yo enjoyed it! I love these swaps and have a good time finding interesting packaging and saving the cute cat ones for cat lovers :D Thanks so much for the heart :)
Comment: Thank you for the 'Painted Ladies' postcard. I've been to San Francisco a couple of times but never had the opportunity to see these houses. Next time, if we ever get to travel again! Thanks for the stamps too. Take care!
Response: Thank you for the heart I am glad you liked the houses. I would love to see them one day
Comment: I can’t wait till theaters are open again as well. My favorite Marvel movie is Aquaman. JUST KIDDING!!! Seriously though, that was as close to Marvel DC has ever gotten. My favorite Marvel was Black Panther with an honorable mention to both Guardians of the Galaxy movie (awesome music)!
Response: Thanks for the heart! ❤ Black Panthrr was really good too! I have not seen Aquaman but now i just have to!
Comment: Ooooo! I am a big root beer fan! What do you like about this one? Is it a sweet vanilla type, or a spicy type? Other? Do you like creme soda too? Thanx for the chunk and the extra deco! I have not seen the eagle savings bond stamp before.
Response: Hello thank you for the heart. It is more of a sweet type. I love trying all different types of root beer. One time on vacation, I had Coffee bean root beer. It wasn't the best, but I love to try them. Im glad you liked the chunk!
Comment: Thanks so much for the Bronner's Christmas card! I've found that store online, although I haven't ordered from it, but I'd love to visit it in person some day!
Response: I have been there many times. They have so many ornaments! Any thing you can think of, I bet there is one there lol! Hope you get to go someday, its a really cool place to go if you love christmas!
Comment: Thank you so much for the V for vendetta postcard!!! I have watched this movie yearly since it came out. I feel you about the salons, my roots have gotten crazy long. only brave enough to trim lol!
Comment: I hosted some swaps similar to this a long time ago (keep 1 send 1 back global), I'm glad someone has started something similar! I have so many cards I want to keep but I love receiving written and stamped cards, so this is perfect. I like the Superman and Toy Story cards you sent me, thank you. Your card will be back in the mail 6/11/20.
Response: Thank you for your nice comment! I joined a swap like this a long time ago (it may have even been yours) and I loved it! I've always wanted to do it again. Its fun to get the card back for me anyway.Thank you for joining the swap and for the heart :)
Comment: You must have thought this envelope felt heavier than it is since you added an extra ounce worth of stamps, even though I could tell before even weighing it that it was barely more than half an ounce. The stamps on the envelope are fun though. I've never seen the cowboy ones before. There are even a few in the envelope that I've never seen before! Thanks so much for swapping with me.
Response: So glad you got them! The day I sent them we got flooded here by the lake and I was worried they wouldn't get there or be damaged. I added extra postage to make sure it was covered. My mail scales batteries were dead lol! Thanks for the heart and glad there were some you enjoyed. I hope the values weren't too small, it was just what I had on hand. :)
Comment: hello Cate ~ greetings from Seattle with thanks for making my day with the cheerful pixar postcard!!!
hope your mothers day was superb & a wonderful week unfolds with lots of fun in the mailbox today! :)
Comment: What an awesome thing to do for someone! My grandparents were in a nursing home for a few years before they passed, and I know the kindness they experienced there made a world of difference. You should be so proud of your work! <3
Comment: Thanks for the post card! I majored in art actually. Lately I have been painting more with ink, sumi-e it is called. But I don’t paint as much as I should. It would probably help if I had better space for it.
Comment: I love kitties, too. We had 4 and we have one left. He is a sweet old man. He views our dogs as smelly drooling monsters, though all they do is sniff and lick him. LOL! We’d get more kitties, but not sure how well they would blend in with our current “pack”. LOL!
Response: Thank you for the heart and telling me about your cats. I would also love more kitties, but 1 of mine has a bad attitude toward new cats lol. she thinks shes the queen of all. Thank you :)
Comment: Hi Cate. What fun facts on your PC! Have you been to the floating Post Office? 116 Lighthouses... I'm originally from the New England area... I'm not sure we had 116 lighthouses there! So many lakes do make it a beautiful state. THANKS again for taking time to send 3 facts about your state. I love it!
Response: No, I have never been to it, but would love to visit it. I think its on a ship I have heard about it since I was young. Thanks for a nice rating and heart :)
Comment: I received the envelope and have sent it home.
I've been thinking about trying a 'smash book'. I have a bunch of things that I intend(ed) to scrapbook but never seem to have the time. If I just do it as I get things...
Response: You should start one. I just add stuff I like but dont know what to do with it. It's always fun to look through later. Thanks for the heart. I'm sure we will exchange again soon. Until next time!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Lake Erie postcard! It looks like a great place to spend the day! We have visited Lake Michigan before, near some dunes I think it was in Indiana. We had a nice time there! The snow would not be fun though! :) Thanks again for the PC!
Comment: Thanks Cate for your lovely soft postcard of kitties having tea! I loved it! How kind of you to mention my cats as well. I really appreciate it. I have not updated my profile as of September 8 i had to put Baba down as she had cancer. I really appreciate that you mentioned her. You did not know this and i just thought it was so touching of you to be so kind. I loved the random theme as Cats because that could not be better. Claire her half sister is still here with me. Claire is older too 18 now! Thank you again!
Response: Aw thank you so much for a beautiful comment! I Am so sorry about Baba... She must have had a very good life with you! I'm happy the postcard gave you at least a little solace, even if by accident :) Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the great PC! I love your answers, but I think kayaking would stress me lol! Reading is definitely something I am trying to do more of. Like actual, curl up with a good book, reading. I miss that! Thanks so much for swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the nice PC.
I remember being sent home from school early when JFK was killed. They gave no consideration to the fact that they were sending a 10 y.o. and his 8 y.o. brother home to an empty house.
Comment: I love lighthouses so thank you for the great pc! I have been to MI twice and really like your state with the lakes! You can always send me Lighthouses from there! Glad you liked the Amish one!
Comment: Cate, thank you for the postcard of the Michigan Lighthouses. Wow, having water go over the pier, are you having a lot of rain? We got 5 1/2 inches Wednesday in 2 hours. Seems we have been getting thunderstorms everyday now. Shirley
Comment: Hi Cate ! Thank you for the so cute kitty postcard and your wonderful note! Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer camping. I haven't done in a few years. Miss it! We will be going to see the PA. Grand canyon next weekend in Wellsboro,PA. We go every year. Is only an hour away.
Response: Thank you so much for the heart! I hope you have fun on your getaway! THanks again :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful card. I feel like I need to hang it in Alexis' room, but I love the stamps lol. I haven't been on one, but I would love to. Maybe need a bucket list lol. Thanks again!
Response: So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the heart rating and nice comment :)
Comment: Hi Cate! Thanks for the fun vintage pc and postage! I love both! This weekend at the Nashville flea market, I found some of both and was so excited! I need the National Postal Museum stamp - very cool! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I Love flea markets! So glad you enjoyed the card and stamps, Thanks for heart.
Comment: Thank you very much for the Chicago card, I grew up outside of the Windy City - the park must be fairly new? Me too, visit - but I did work downtown for a little over a year and did the commute on the train.
Comment: OMG Cate! A red three on a PC!!! I was so happy to find this in my mailbox and for the fact it made it here. The mails been pretty rough lately. Out of my two PCs for this swap both liked Captain Marvel. Guess I need so see that one. Thanks so much. Wish I could give you more than one heart ❤️ ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: Hey! I am so glad it got to you okay! I was worried about it! I had to share the red 3 as I do the same thing with half dollars and my grandma, every time I see one I think of her! Thanks for all the hearts :) Hope to swap again with you sometime!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard. We had a lavender bush in our yard when I was growing up. Mom used to cut the branches and bring them inside and put them in a vase. The whole house smelled wonderful! I love daisies and pansies as well!
Comment: This summer will be like most. Lots of day trips with the nephew and grandaughters to keep the summer exciting. Lots of Vintage shows on the calendar and lots of searching for inventory for those shows. I have PILES of great vintage artwork needing frames. So that is high on the list of summer projects. Camping is one of our favorite activities.
Response: I hope you can get to everything! Thank you!
Comment: Love the card! You need another ocean vacation asap:) Pelicans are really big! But the scariest birds are the divebombing seagulls!! Do NOT hold a french fry aloft....I'm just sayin...:)Thanks for swapping!
Response: I agree! Ill keep an eye our for the seagulls ! lol Thank you for rating a heart :)
Comment: Thanks for the nice PC and your Easter tradition.
We were a bit south and on the other side of the lake for that storm. It was just wet snow, most of the day, in Chicago. It didn't stay on anything but the grass. I wonder if you did end up with good weather for Easter. It was nice here. Unseasonably warm at 71F.
Response: 70 here today and beautiful! And I’m stuck at work! Lol thanks for heart and nice comments!
Comment: Hello! Thanks so much for the galaxy NGC 1316 card! I love that set. Feeling springlike here today, sunny and 75 degrees. Have to enjoy this while we can--tomorrow will be cold again and then we'll be hot and miserable in no time :)
Response: Im glad you enjoyed the card. The space ones are cool!, Cold and rainy here today. Need some sun :) Thank you for heart rating :)
Comment: Hi Cate! First of all, I LOVE the postcard! Thank you! Now....is the lie you collect pennies?
Response: Hey! So glad you enjoyed the postcard! The lie was that I broke my leg lol. Never have broken any bone. I really don’t like chocolate and I also really collect pennies! Lol I collect them by dates. Also working on a Canada penny book haha yea I’m a nerd! Thanks for rating and guessing !
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful botanical card and fun stamps! I have it propped up in my office right now as a reminder that spring will indeed come... even though we are now in the middle of a few of the coldest days of the year so far here in MA!
Response: Im glad you are enjoying it! Yes, spring needs to hurry I am tired of this cold weather! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous flower fairy postcard. I love them too!! I don't have this one so it's perfect!! :-) That you so much for the compliment about my frenchie Cora. She is an absolute delight. I've had dogs my whole life, and I have to say, she's my favorite. If you get the chance to get a French bulldog, I highly recommend it!!
Response: You are very welcome! I am so happy you enoyed it :) Thank you for such a nice comment and the heart rating :)
Comment: Love the Norman Rockwell card :) Wow you guys are colder then we are up here in Alaska! We have had a few warm days though at 50F now we are really hoping for snow soon :) gotta get the ground covered so our pipes don't freeze during the cold snaps....Thank you for the awesome card!
Response: Im glad you liked it! Norman Rockwell is one of my favorites.Thank you for the heart rating :)
Comment: Hello Caitlyn, thank you so much for this swap and for reading my profile carefully! Postcards are awesome, I especially love the flower fairy and thanks for the extra heart stickers too! Very much appreciated. Your envelope had quite a rough time though, it was open on several sides. Luckily nothing was missing! xx
Thank you so much for the heart rating! I am so glad everything got to you safely but I wish the envelope held up better. Next time i will try to reinforce it. Thanks again! :)
Comment: You were right - I do love it! That dog on the postcard looks a little like the dog I just moved in with. Not the exact same, but same style. Also, how many of my kids do I need to sell to buy that dog washi tape? I've got 3, plus some grands. Haha! But seriously, I'll be looking that up and getting as much as I can justify in my budget - I mean, dogs AND lime green. I love The Stand, also. Thanks for a great swap!
Response: I’m so glad you liked the pc, that washi I bought at my daughters book fair so I am not sure where to find it now lol So glad I could swap with you! All the best!
