Comment: Thank you for the incredible washi. You sent such an incredible variety! I LOVE THEM! I am also sorry to hear about your dental work. I hope all went well and you are healing without tons of pain. I worked for a dentist for 12 years and understand what an adjustment you are going through! I added you to my prayer list. Take care! -Jill

Comment: Hi Dana,
Thank you so much for the swap you completed and then sent to me. The item(s) you sent me for the swap is/are GREAT!. I really enjoy receiving new items that I can use in future swaps or some other creative project(s) OR Add your project to one of My Collections.
I apologize for taking extra time in getting your rating done for this swap. I very much appreciate your completion of this swap and getting it off to me in a timely manner.
Colorado is still having problems with the mail. Mail going in and out of Colorado is continuing to be an issue. So, until this issue is resolved, please Be Patient!
Thank you for the stickers you sent along as extras.
Your Swap-bot Partner,
Comment: Thank you Dana!! I'm sorry for the rating delay, I did that thing where you set something aside so you can write a really good response later...and then buried it in my mailstack. I love the notecards you chose and would love to do some private swaps if you're up for it :)
Response: You're welcome and no worries about the delay, I get it! I am so happy you liked the cards and a private swap would be great! We should stay in touch. Take care!
Comment: Hello, again! I received your mail today and I absolutely love everything! I can't wait to try the teas! I'm a bit confused with the card, though... I'm pretty sure that the flowers on the card are lilies, not orchids... I'm not sure if that was a misprint or not. Either way, it's a very lovely painting <3 (I have an orchid currently blooming in my garden. It's a lovely sight!) Thank you also for the stamps! I'm always happy to receive stamps of any kind, even if they are duplicates or outside my collection theme :D Good luck on your garden! <3
Response: Yay! I'm so happy you liked the swap! What a confusing card... :) so looking forward to keeping in touch! Take care!
Comment: Hello! Thank you for the very thoughtful and personal letter. I love learning about different people's experiences. I also loved the way you decorated the envelope, You made my day with your swap! :)
Response: Yay! Thanks so much for your kind words! I am so happy you enjoyed the swap! It was a pleasure putting it together for you. Take care!
Comment: Hello again, Dana! Thank you very much for the teas and flora & fauna extras! I love them!! How are you enjoying the Practical Magic books so far? I've read Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic, and I love them both! I can't wait to read Alice Hoffman's other books! Take care! <3
Response: Hey there! So great that you liked everything - I had fun putting it together and I'm still amazed that it gets to you! I finished all 3 Practical Magic books and loved them all! Magic Lessons is really good! I have a long list of books to catch up on but I definitely want to read more of hers! Take care!
Comment: Hoi Dana! I use Dublingo to learn french. It’s alot of fun. just loved opening this swap you sent! I am going to look for you on IG. My ig is 99% pics of my lab. haha. We can chat from there. I think we are the same age? Thank you for sending the lovely items! perfect for me!
Response: Salut Robyn! You are very welcome and I'm so happy you liked the swap! We can keep in touch on IG and maybe send happy mail if you want another pen pal. I'm so thrilled we connected! À bientôt!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely notecard, teas, and extras. I was so happy to see the Bukowski quote that I immediately hung it up over my crafting desk. I would absolutely love to hear about Hank and continue exchanging mail! Thank you for such a sweet swap.
Response: Yay! So happy you liked the quote and so honored to be a part of your crafting area! If you send a pc, note, letter, whatever, I will get back to you with the bittersweet story of Hank. Just lmk if you want the detailed long and gory version or the shorter story that's just the main details. I'm so thrilled you like the little package! Looking forward to hearing from you! Take care!
Comment: Thank you for a wonderful swap. The note card is absolutely beautiful! I love Red Rose tea and have not tried this flavor of the Pukka brand. Looking forward to enjoying it in the morning. Thank you for sharing the quote too! Be well & happy swapping.
Comment: Thank you SO much for all the wonderful stickers, yummy teas, and the lenticular stamp! I love the stamp so much, it's definitely getting its own special area in my collection. I'm really excited to try to the blueberry superfruit tea. Despite being a big fruity tea fan, I've never had plain blueberry! ❤️
Response: Yay! I'm thrilled that you like everything, especially the stamp!! I really enjoyed putting it all together for you! Have fun!
Comment: Thank you for the tea, and the stamps, stickers, and lovely notecard! I love them all! And they made me happy when I received them <3 Oh, and I honestly don't think your generation ruined everything. I mean, we've had some pretty big discoveries in the past and those discoveries are still being referred to now, especially in Science. So again, thank you! Stay safe <3
Response: Yay! I'm so happy that everything made it safely and that you enjoy the items! Go science! Take care!
Comment: Omg, I love rose tea and peach tea! You must be psychic, good job! Thank you so much for the extra washi. I especially love the sunflower one!
Ha! I loved your story! My husband is a Masshole and from south boston and yes, people from Boston have a reputation for being off-putting and brutally honest. I put this envelope in my "write back" pile and then saw the yellow bear from your other one from a few weeks ago sticking out. Ha! There's your coincidence for the day! Guess I'm behind responding... Sorry! But thank you for sending me your story! I will write back so I can hear more!
Response: Yay I'm so happy you liked everything and I'm so excited to hear back from you. Things get to you fast from here, so that's handy! Looking forward to hearing from you! Take care!
Comment: I love any tea that can take a splash of milk, so I will truly enjoy the chai! And I love green tea too and am in need of more of it in my stash. ☺ Thank you so much for the tea and goodies. 💗💗💗
Comment: Thank you! I actually love Rose, so the teas you sent are perfect! I loved reading your card! I would love to hear all your stories. I find it so interesting. Wow! What amazing stickers and washi for my daughter! Thank you!
Comment: What a great package! The Maps are awesome! We are looking at them remembering so many fun experiences. I really love the vintage postcards of the Petrified Forest (we saw it) and Bryce Canyon (which is actually one of my top favorites of national parks.) Thank you so much for tailoring your destash items just for me. I will send you a letter shortly because there is a lot more to say in response to your letter, which I loved reading!❤️❤️❤️😊
Response: Yay! I'm thrilled that you are happy with everything! I'm very excited to get your letter! Yay again!
Comment: Thank you so much, AGAIN! for such a happy delivery! I cannot wait to try the decaf earl grey, also one of my faves! And thank you so much for the washi samples, they’re all so adorable. Last, the card is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you again, SO MICH!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Comment: WOW thank you for such a variety of cards! I especially love the pheasant one. So unique! And thank you so much for the letter. I LOVE LETTERS! I grew up in Reno, NV and remember the eruption of Mt.St. Helens. Our homes and cars were covered in ash that far away, I can't imagine being so close. It sounds like you live in a beautiful place. Have a super Christmas.
Comment: What a fun swap! And how funny you used to live here. Small world! Much different than Washington, I'm sure. I really love all the floral prints and vintage paper. Thank you and have a great day!
Comment: Thank you so much for my swap!! I LOVED that washi that looked like mountains with tiny birds on it...soooo cute, reminded me of Cannon Beach! And that postcard is super pretty!!! Thank you very much for the swap!!
Comment: Omigod - this was one of my favourite swaps so far. Dana put so much attention and care into my envelope. Not only was the envelope decorated in my most favourite colors, she even reached out to introuce herself to me before the swap, which was very kind. When her swap arrived, I knew she had read every portion of my profile. She made me a hang tag in my most favourite color which I have already hung up on my most special art wall. She also sent one of my favourite washis lately - a blue and green glitter. I already used all of the blue glitter she me in a patriotic lighter for a veteran! She sent over some of those cute lazy egg address labels, that I'm gonna be using to write one of my best friends who loves that little guy. She also sent me some kitty stickers too along with a chocolate kitty memo! She even included some extra playing cards to wrap washi, and what must have been one of her favourite moon stickers! A sparkly card came as well which I will be using as a cover for my next sticker book. After she read I was a twin, she sent along some AMAZING Little Twin Stars full sized memo sheets, and even some little baby ones too. Some butterflies arrived as well, in and on a notecard I'll be sending to my future wife. I truly felt loved when I opened it, and her package made my day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dana-Banana, and I can hardly wait until we trade again! <3~ Sending love from Elizabeth and me.
Response: Yay! Thanks so much for the lovely words and the rating! Wow! You know, I had so much fun putting your envelope together and I'm so glad you got that I got you :-) So happy we met on this wacky ride! xxoo
Comment: Thank you for all the BLUE goodies!! I'd never seen a blue PC like that before .. so cool!! I also love the washi, envelope, and special papers. And I don't know if it was intentional or not, but the book pages even had an ad for a "BLUE Spruce Tree" on the front 😊
Response: Haha, not intentional but so cool! You are so welcome - I'm so thrilled you like the blue stuff! I had fun picking stuff out for you! Enjoy!
Comment: I get that a lot (about me being mature for my age). Something random about that is that every year in high school (9-12) everyone was like, "Are you a senior?" or "You're graduating this year, right?" Which is funny because I was 13 when I got to high school (graduated when I was 17) and I look exactly the same with my outfits, size/height, hair, etc. Basically the point of that long info dump was that I'm glad I'm seen as mature for my age because you took the time to read through my profile/bio and sort of got to know me. Wishing you the best, Lexi!
Response: Hey, cool, thanks for taking the time to share that with me! Best of luck in everything! Dana
Comment: Thank you for the email! It was nice to read about you, and sorry about late rating. The work life got hectic and I had to give more focus on it. I still had fun to read your email over lunch break. Have a great day and take care!
Comment: Thank you so much for the orange sparklies! It's my fav color. I even got bright copper paint from Lowe's to do my living room. 😀
um, I came back to give you a heart, those washi samples are so up my alley. I'm still trying to figure this all out, but I should have given you a <3 from the get go. my bad!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Halloween washi samples, postcard, wonderful letter, letterset, even a bookmark/card with my name on it in my favorite color??! Thank you! The pen you used was a little hard to read just so you know. I will be writing you back soon!! :)
Response: Yay! So good you like everything! Sorry about the dying pen. I can never decide when it's actually done... I will write more legibly next time! Looking forward to hearing from you!
Comment: Hi! Thank you for the goodies and extra postcard. The mini xmas card is really cute -- I almost don't want to use it! But surely I'll use everything you sent. I'll add Repo man to my list! Take care!
Response: You are so very welcome! I am happy that it was happy mail! :-)
Comment: Thank you for it all, everything was great. I have been wanting to watch "It's Okay Not To Be Okay", now I cannot wait to watch it! - I read your profile & I also have Bipolar disorder so I know how difficult it can be to crumble due to stress. 🌟
Response: Yay! So happy you're happy! Keep in touch if you want to talk bipolar stuff or TV stuff... :-)
Comment: Thanks so much for doing this swap with me and wow - I think we did this one in record time. lol After reading your list I can see that you most likely would know more songs I listed than I thought you would. 😂 😂
P.S. I'm honored to give you your very first rating and your very first heart!
