Comment: Thank you!! Sorry for the late rating! Hubby found this on the back floor of the car. It must have slipped through the seats when he got the mail. Somehow I archived the swap without realizing it wasn't received - but luckily it really was! :D
Comment: Hello my sweet partner!
Thank you for hosting this great swap, for being my partner and for sending me the cutest bunny card ever! Oh and the gnomes, be still my heart, I ❤️❤️❤️❤️Them!
Response: You are welcome. I am so pleased that you enjoy everything 💝. It's always nice swapping with you. Mahalo for the kind words and for rating 💌
Comment: Thank you! This finally arrived today after circling the mail system for over a month. It mentions a handmade mini envie on your note. I did not find one in the envelope though. Thank you for the other items that I did receive.
Response: You are welcome. What an adventure! Hmmm. It has been so long - sorry everything wasn't in there. Mahalo for rating and keeping me posted.
Comment: Thank you very much, for the so pretty PC's of Hawaii. You asked in your nice note, Have Have I ever been to Hawaii? No, I never got the chance. But my mom did back in the mid 80's & went to Oahu. She wanted me to go with her. But I couldn't any time off from work. They wouldn't let me, since I didn't have any vacation time. But went to Canada twice in the mid 80's. Haven't been back since. Oh well. That's life.
Response: You're welcome. Oh my, well, Hawaii will always be here when you are able to vacation. Stay well and mahalo for rating.
Comment: Thank you for the origami bookmarks - they look great! I will definitely share the postcard with my students, I’m sure they will love it. I really like how we can connect with people from miles away through swapping!
Response: I am happy you like them. Mahalo for rating 🌈💌
Comment: Thanks for the great bags! Happy to pass them along. I can't believe it was snowing in Maui! February was hideous here, but we're about to hit 50-degree weather this week, which is considered warm here.
Response: You're welcome. Mahalo for passing my stickers along. Snow is almost passed and making way for Whale Season 🐳
Comment: Hello! Thank you so much for the postcard and fun playlist! I love Lizzo and can't wait to listen to the whole thing. :) Also, I feel like this might be the original card you sent! It is postmarked from January! We have been having a time here in Richmond with late mail... ugh. I can send a card back in reply if you like, but the return address was torn. Could you DM me your address? -Barbie
Response: Wow! That PC had quite an adventure! I will DM you 💌
Comment: Wow! I just can't imagine snow in Maui. Crazy is the only word for it.

Response: Ahhh sorry for the mistake. I worked for "Miss Debbie's Daycare" while in college and have caught myself a few times writing that. Ooops. Mahalo for rating 💌

Response: You're welcome and YESSSS there is, they all signed back on except Nate. He is Nate in Jack Ryan on Amazon now. He is a mean Nate on Jack Ryan, it's weird to see him act like that. Lol. Happy Swapping and Mahalo for rating 💟
Comment: What a nice birthday surprise. I really like the words you made. I'm not so great at calligraphy. VERY cold here today so going to give your Hawaiian Island tea a try for a little warm up. Thanks for everything!

Comment: First off, let me say I LOVE how you reused the envelope! Very clever 💖 thank you for the extras for my daughter, very thoughtful! Can't wait to try the tea! It's always exciting to get to try new flavors. Love the map pc
Response: Haha. I had to start using them... they were taking up a lot of space in my stationary box. I am so pleased you liked everything. I have a origami/anime child, it's fun to keep them engaged in our hobbies and us in theirs. I hope you are having a good and healthy 2021. Mahalo for rating!!
Comment: Jaxon King Ponce is too handsome! Sent you a pic of my cat and his wine habits too! :D
Response: Just saw it! So adorable. It's funny bc he goes HAM on his toys but he has 3 plushies that he plays with and then puts to the side when he thinks it may break or tear. He got the wine plushie during covid lock down during my Amazon spree. Haha.
Comment: Your card arrived yesterday. It is so nice to see a card that does not include snow LOL. We have a very white Christmas here in Pennsylvania. and it is snowing so we are getting even more. Merry Christmas
Response: I'm so relieved it finally got there. Mele Kalikimaka 🎄
Comment: What a fun Christmas card! I love it. And I really like the washi you used to decorate the envelope. And thank you for the postcard. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Comment: Thanks for the memories of Hawaii. I am sure I saw your cousin play, since I never missed a game in 30+ years. You didn't mention "the Rock" either. My great grandson is part Hawaiian. Aloha to you.

Comment: Love Everything! Thank you for both an awesome card and an ATC =). Can you tell me how you stamped the flowers was it a wooden backed stamp or a cling stamp. I cannot get little stamps to stamp that clean without any outline marks. Thank you so much for everything and being such an awesome swapper!
Response: it is a wooden backed stamp. a local crafting company in hawaii produces them. thanks for the heart!
Comment: This was so much fun... and I LOVE your goodies. Gifts are always better when they're handmade. The embroidery was my favorite. I felt my whole face light up when I saw it... it's wonderful :) Thank you Tanya.
Response: Yay! I am so happy you liked everything! You're welcome. That was super fun. Maybe we can do it again and each invite a friend and then their will be four of us. I will keep in touch and we will see.
Comment: Thank you! I love knee socks and Rainbow Dash is adorable. I will put the tea and stickers to good use. I am not holding my breath for a Rainbow Brite bookmark to turn up - but how magical would it be if it existed! :)
Response: You're welcome :) I am so happy you liked your package. Have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you so much for swapping!! Sorry about my delayed rating, all of a sudden my due date just seems to be sneaking up and I've been going mental trying to knock things off my to-do list :P sure wish I was in Maui right now instead of snowy Ontario!
Response: A'ole pilikea - no problem in Hawaiian. Sending you some sunshine and aloha to you.
