Comment: I just received this yesterday, not sure what happened there but otherwise this was a great swap, I loved the music tissue paper and the little stickers. The cards will come in handy. Thank you so much!
Comment: I love your plan to design postcards for where you live! I’ve never looked to see if my area has any, tho I’d be surprised to find any. Like you, I usually send postcards from the nearest city - I am an hour east of Vancouver 😸
Comment: I just received your letter today. You weren’t kidding about the awful snafu with your mail service! I feel bad for you! Your letter is so interesting. I’m going to Google “biomimicry regenerative rewilding food forest”. About those other shows you mentioned - we only have basic cable and Netflix. I don’t think they are on that, but I’m definitely going to check! Thanks for the recommendations!! Such cute stationery & envelope. Thanks for the perfect extras, too!
Comment: This package certainly went on an adventure, but it's finally here! Thank you so much for the effort you put into this, it's a lot more than I was expecting! <3 I love all the tea flavors, and the snacks all look delicious, especially the sweets and oat bars. I tried one of the power bars with my roommate just now and it's definitely like nothing I've ever tasted before! It'll be very cool to try all these things!
Response: Wow! It certainly sounds like it was on quite the adventure, considering I had sent it on April 20th, this year! Now if only the package could talk, right? What interesting sights & sounds it may have experienced with things it might say! Except if it just said that it had an uneventful journey to a detainment room in questionable Customs buildings! Lol. Anyway, I am So happy to know you finally received it & glad to know you’re enjoying it all. My plan was to astonish you! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Thanks so very much for the lovely swap! I have wanted to try oolong and the love tea looks so interesting! I'm in love with the themed washi! And I'm going to try to sprout the card and be diligent about watering. Thanks for the notes on the back! Such happy mail! Take care!
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know you enjoyed it all. My plan is to astonish! I like oolong with mint or something else added to it. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z

I know we decided to swap 100 grams but you went over and above and sent me 10 x more , I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Comment: Thank you soo much for your kindness to care about my insulin resistance!! :) Even the foods have some sugar, I'm 100% sure they will be consumed by me!! ;) Thanks a lot!
Response: You’re very welcome! Glad to know it arrived well & you enjoyed it all. I was careful to inspect the ingredients for no added processed sugars. 😄 some foods & fruits naturally have sugar, yet it doesn’t metabolize the same as refined processed types. Plus, due to my healthcare & nutrition background, I cannot in good conscious, provide any artificial sweeteners since I know they’re toxic. Hope you enjoyed the healthy foods I sent. Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
Comment: Well, I must say this must be the most creative, thoughtful and wonderful swap I've ever received. And I must say I love it! Thank you thunderstorm for cutting out your power and allowing your creativity to thrive. I just love the concept. And thank you for the lovely extras. Much appreciated. Take care
Response: 😊 Wow! You’re very welcome. I’m so happy to know it arrived safely & you love it all! It was fun, even with the storm, to create for you! Thank you so much for the compliments, the rating, and ❤️ ! It means a lot to me! ~ Z
Comment: Your work is so beautiful! You have pushed me into being more creative with little sparklies! Thank you for the goodies!
Response: You’re very welcome & thank you for the compliment! It’s kind of you to say. I love Wink of Stella, Spica & Glossy Accents! (Although. I think I went overboard on the latter mentioned, thinking it was a water scene, after all!) 😊 Thanks for the rating, comments & heart. ~ Z
Comment: Hello there! Girl, I recvd your swap the other day but my eye was swollen shut! And then both eyes were sensitive to light. I was laying in bed with sunglasses on! Oh my gosh. So happy I did not have to go to the ER; a close call though. So, I was afaid to open my eyes this morning, the deal breaker, the decider and they are not light sensitive anymore yippy. Yea, thats some crazy stuffs. Anywho. wanna thank you for a kind, kind, envelope! You thought of my birthday! How kind is that! You sent a little envie with a Whale Shark! I just love those guys! And thank you for decorating the envelope! Something spilled on it? Which postcard reminded you that something spilled on it? The B&w one? The song lyrics? The icky meats, LOL? The Las Vegas lights?, The adorable rabbit and moon? LOL And you must tell me which one is the one you wanted to keep? OH, oh, oh I was laying on 2 postcards. LOL Theres a crater moon p.c. I betcha thats the one that looks like something spilled? Am I right? And the other is a large full moon. Still, whats the special one? I cant guess. LOL
Response: (You're very welcome!) Oh, my! I'm so glad your eyes are better! What caused it? Since your swap mentioned that you like "sucky" postcards, I gave you the giant moon over water, that looked like something was on it that was wiped off. Idk. It was given to me. I liked it, except for that, which can be seen at certain angles. The bunny looking at a moon, is the one that was in my favorites stack. I had two. I'm happy to share one with you! Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z
Comment: IWhat a fun trip you have put together -- we will have a great time! Fun fact: My next-door neighbor used to run the Rose Island Lighthouse. I could take you on an insider tour, hah!
Response: Very nice! Now if only they'd release teleporting for public use!!! Lol! I'd seriously plan on visiting with you and seeing all those interesting sites! I miss the ocean, so much!!! Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z
Comment: Cant wait to pass it along and those stickers were so cute!
Response: Glad it arrived safely. I'm excited to see your contributions, as well as, from the others when it arrives back to me. Hope you picked out some stickers you like. Thanks for the rating, comment and heart! ~ Z
Response: Yay! So glad to know it arrived! Whew! I was getting concerned, because our local small town PO had a change in personnel & some neighbors have reported strange stuff. So I'm thrilled to know you received it & enjoy what I put together for you! Thanks for the rating, comment & heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! I really like the postcard!
Response: Yay! So glad to know it made it! Whew! I was getting concerned, because our local small town PO had a change in personnel & some neighbors have reported strange stuff. So I'm thrilled to know you received & enjoy what I put together for you! Thanks for the rating, comment & heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for the card. I love roasted vegetables. Have a great day!
Response: You’re very welcome! Yeah, I thought it was so colorful & turns out, that fire grilled pizza from Natural Grocers, is the most authentic tasting for a frozen pizza that we’ve ever tasted so far. I like that it doesn’t have cheese on it, so that we can add our own, such as Rawmasan & /or Miyoko’s vegan Mozzarella during the last minute, just enough to warm it up. Yum! Otherwise, even though that brand tastes better than cows milk Mozzarella, if it’s cooked longer, it tends to evaporate; yet Miyoko’s brand is the best we’ve found so far! Delish! Thanks for the rating, comments and Heart. ~ Z
Comment: First, your envelope was *really* beautiful, I can tell you put a lot of work into it. The zentagle work was top notch! And second, thank you! I love the stuff you sent! the postcards, notecards, washi tape, all of it!
Response: You're So Very welcome! Thank you for the compliment! It means a lot to me! Any zentangle tips, you may have, feel free to share with me. What's your favorite designs? I'm glad to know that you're pleased & enjoy the other goodies, too. Thanks for the rating, comments & heart. 🤗 ~ Z
Comment: THANK YOU! I tend to send more than the requirements in swaps like this as well. I was recently gifted a ton of scrapbooking items so I've been spreading the wealth. I'm excited to try to tea you sent, I haven't had either one. The Star Wars pcs are always welcome in this house, the kids and I use them for birthday and holiday cards for my husband, thanks for helping us out!
Response: You're very welcome! I'm so glad to know it arrived well and that your enjoying the goodies I've sent you. Thank you for the rating, comments and heart! ~ Z
Comment: I love your handwriting. I print, no idea what type as my dad taught me.
Response: Thank you! So glad to know that you can read it well & love it! Sweet! My family said they have no idea where I got my handwriting, as I was doing it since I was 3 & no one else in my family writes like me. In fact, my mom is a lefty & I write with my right hand. My dad prints in all caps. Lol Guess then, it must have been from a former life, carried over, of extensive letter writing! 😄 Thanks for the rating, comments & Heart. ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for all the fun postcards. I love these postcard soup swaps. I do a lot of the scavenger hunts for postcards swaps so some of these will be very useful. I actually really like the 'animals of the underground' postcard. I wonder if that was one of your not likes or duplicates :) And thank you for the washi samples and stamps. Have a great day!
Response: You're very welcome. Glad to know they arrived safely & you're enjoying them! The **Animals of the Underground** pc is from a book of postcards in that theme, which I purchased at Half Price Books many years ago. I thought it was a neat concept & like them, too. Thanks for the rating, comments and heart. ~ Z
Comment: What a fun swap! I love how you decorated the envelope, though I should tell you, it did split open on one side, so I don't know if all the goodies made it... I did get a cute postcard, adorable thank you card with cat sticky notes inside (nice touch!), some washi tape samples, perfect for spring, a mini sheet of stickers and some washi sticker flakes, along with two cute mini envies and some paper punch confetti. So much great stuff! Thank [email protected]
Response: So glad to know it arrived; although, it's sad that it ripped & odd, too, considering I don't think I put anything sticky on the envelope, that might have caught on machinery. (Just doodles.) I reviewed my pictures. So it sounds like you received the entire contents, if the note card, with a personal message to you, was also in there? I'm so happy to know you had fun! Thanks for the rating, comments and the Heart! ~ Z
Comment: The way I think about it is don't stress the small stuff. In the long run what goes in in swap-bot is nice in the big picture it doesn't really matter. Though hearts might make you feel better alot of people dont really
Response: Ikr!?!?! We're all a bunch of silly people, aren't we? Thanks for sharing your insights, the rating, comments and Heart! 😇
Comment: I’m really enjoying these postcards, I’ve received from you, thanks so much.
Response: Really thankful that you received both the postcards. It was fun to give to you twice, in both swaps, so close together! I'm happy to know they arrived well & your pleased! Thanks for the rating, comments & hearts! ~ Z
Comment: OMG IM SO EXCITED TO TRY ALL OF THESE!!! That Tara reminds me of the Abulita hot coca disks! I might have to try that! Thank you so much!!! You went above and beyond!!!
Response: Yay!!! So glad to know that! Yeah, I thought the same thing about the Taza discs. It can be used either way. There's sooo much sugar in there, that I just nibble on a small triangle piece, at a time. The cocomels seem to be my family's new favorite, as it's difficult to find vegan caramels, which is silly, because it's really just burnt sugar! Lol. Thanks for the rating, comments and the heart. ~ Z
Comment: Hi ThrivingWell, II appreciate all the goodies you had sent me, yes it was double the swap requirements though it wasn't necessary. I really love all these cute kawaii envelopes with the tucked in goodies in it. Glad I don't live near a Daiso otherwise I'd need to rent a square tile because I'd be in there everyday. I also like this cute cultivate journal too. Anyways, thank you for brightening my day and hope to swap with you in the near future!. kizzlets
Response: So happy to hear that and know it arrived well! I love to give, to astonish others & brighten their days. That's funny, about renting a tile at Daiso! Glad you had fun. Thanks for the rating, comments and the heart. ~ Z
Comment: This pun notecard is amazing! This was a really fun swap to open. Using a water jug for washi samples is so clever! Thank you!
Response: Wow! Seems like that arrived fast. Glad you like it! Saw the note cards at our local tractor supply (feed store) & couldn't resist! Thanks for the compliment about the washi tape base. We have a lot of water jugs and I enjoy upcycling stuff. Thanks for the rating, comment and heart! ~ Z
Comment: Giiiiirlll! Thank you so much! What beautiful tape you picked out! Unfortunately the rain did get the envelope And there was a rip down one side BUT all washi was accounted for and the special tea you gave! Not sure if anything fell out or not but I am so very very grateful! Thank you! If I ever see your tea about I'll be sure to repay your kindness ❤️
Response: So happy to know you're pleased! I went back to look at the pic I took of your items, to be sure; there should be four separate upcycled water jug pieces, with a total of 14 washi samples. Hope they're all there! A repayment of the tea isn't necessary; I'm just filled with joy, knowing you're having a fun experience! Thanks for the rating, comments & the heart! ~ Z
Comment: Wow thank you so much for the teas, birthday card and Texas cards. Love them all! So kind of you for going the extra mile and noticing it was my birthday. I really appreciate it and I'm really thankful as a Covid birthday is pretty boring. The cards are all new to my collection. I was an exchange student at TCU back in 2007 so I'm quite familiar with the Dallas/ Ft Worth area.
Response: Yay! So glad to know it arrived well; that was quite a journey! You're very welcome! I'm so happy to know you appreciate it all! That's pretty neat that you were here in 2007! I used to live in the neighborhood right up the hill from the zoo, in the TCU area, many decades ago. Glad I could bring a little joy to your part of our world! Thanks for the rating, nice comments and heart! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful letter, it, really, made my day. The stationary, envelope and ink are very pretty. The tiny envelopes filled with fabulous surprises, delighted me. I love the washi tape and putting it on the plastic is a great idea. I've, suddenly, gotten very busy and it may take me a couple of weeks, but be looking for a letter from me. Beautiful Day
Response: Oh, yay! It arrived; so happy to know that and to learn you're delighted! It fills me with warm fuzzies! Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with it, for the rating and the heart! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you! I'll have to try the "Kick it up" Salsa mix!
Response: Yay, happy to know it arrived well! Yeah, it's my favorite way to quickly make salsa now, although, it does get better the longer the ingredients set, to get in tune with each other. 🙂 Thanks for the rating, comment and heart! ~ Z
Comment: Thank you! I loved everything you send, you absolutely aced this swap <3 The things you sent were so creative and I will be able to use all of them :)
Response: Yay! So glad to know it arrived well and that you can use the items! Thanks for being my third rating, for the feedback and the heart. It means a lot to me, to know if someone enjoys what I send them. ~ Z
