Comment: Your ATC certainly made me smile Elinor. I thought it was a fabulous idea of yours to combine a selection of things starting with the letter A. Thanks a lot also for the postcard on the same theme :)
Comment: Best Manta Ever! He made it across the Atlantic perfectly. Thank you for addressing it to my son too - he didn’t believe me when I told him he’d got mail. But as soon as he saw it, he smiled and hung it on our refrigerator! I think little Manta will be happy in his new home. 😉 Did you make him yourself? We 💙 his button eyes and denim tail!
Comment: Elinor, WOW! Thank you so much for this beautiful ATC! I just adore it with my whole entire heart. You are so darn creative, I can't get over how wonderful this ATC is that you made! I love the photo as well that you used, it is beautiful! I can't thank you enough for everything!! I can't wait to add it into my ATC collection. It is PERFECT. Thank you so much again for everything you sent me, from the bottom of my heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous playing card, I love it! I am working on colour-themed pages for my journal at the moment, so it will be a perfect embellishment! I'll have to run some more as I can see them getting addictive! <3
Comment: Thank you for the ATC and goodies. Love the jellyfish. We normally cruise with Norwegian NCL group or Princess liners, both great ships. Havent tried Viking Lines. Lets hope we can all travel again in the near future. Melbourne, Australia is starting their second week of lockdown, regional Victoria is a less restrictive.
Comment: I'm so excited I get two of your Around the World ATCs! I love your style on these. I've been studying your Niagara Falls to see how you painted them -- they are perfect! I've been there several times since I live in Michigan and my sister lived in Western NY state, so we'd drive across Canada and cross back into the US at Niagara. And your Statue of Liberty, too. The detail on these teeny tiny paintings is wonderful. Thank you!
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for all the versions of your rainbow ATC's. I really like that they are all different & that you sent them to me. I laughed out loud when I read your note because the same thing happened to me! I ended up with 4 bases & 3 attempts! Lol!! I thought about sending the others but in the end I didn't but I should have, I really got a kick out of getting yours! Thank you as well for the labels & stickers. I really like the vintage look of the fruit. 😃
Comment: How funny!! I just sent an envelope to you a few days ago...and then I got your amazingly creative and so fun ATC today. Thanks so much. It's truly the most unique ATC I have seen to date!! Thanks for being a part of Sunshine Swaps. We love having you!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely star-themed ATC. I think you did a beautiful job! I think it’s really fun that you included your first attempt for me to try and finish. I am constantly starting over on ATCs and think it’s a great idea to collaborate the ones that stump me. I may have to steal that idea in the future:)
Comment: Dear Elinor, what a wonderful swap you've sent me! Even without opening the beautifully wrapped presents, it's already worth a lot of hearts. Thank you for making my first private swap really special. Best wishes, Janneke
Comment: Love the care taken in making sure this parcel stayed safe and dry (I assume that is what the folders were for) and the little snowflake on the ribbon was lovely. Did you cast that yourself - thank you for this swap.
Comment: What a nice travel-style zine. I did a little google travelling to see more of Anglesey and Snowdonia. Beautiful, wild and windswept. Looks like a wonderful place to get away from it all and enjoy a bit of rugged nature. Thanks for creating your zine and sharing it elinor.
Comment: Very cool Elinor. I found the magazine and issue online, which added to the experience. A very arty style zine. Impressive. Thank you for creating it and sharing it with me. I look forward to more trading in the future. I've started working on mine today.
Comment: Great list several songs on here that i don't think i have heard I plan to check them out this evening. ( This is my Fight song ) was also on my list and one of my favorite songs
thanks for the play list link
Comment: Oh Eli I recieved your beautiful stamped stationary today everything is just stunning and I love how you packaged it right down to the beautiful plastic envelope you used to sent it in. I love the small details when someone puts something together so beautifully. Thankyou for an enjoyable swap.
Comment: Truly beautiful zine and presentation! My boyfriend and I aww'd at your clear envelope! It's very cool ~ I'll have to try sending a swap in clear envelope, it brought me so much joy to receive one! ~I wish you encouragement, strength, and all the best to complete your bucket list ~ especially the last objective <3 I hope too see you in another swap soon! xoxo 🎈
Comment: VERY CLEVER! I have never seen a zine the opened up! Very good! Thanks so much. The other zine is so cute and has some good suggestions for "Little Flat Gifts". Thank you so much! Your zines are really special!
Comment: I was so happy to open the pdf file and see all those dog images. Gotta love a dog zine. I like all dogs but totally get the difference between the small ones and the big ones. I've had 2 of the bigger kind. But those little devils are so cute and portable. :D
Comment: This is so cool, with the capitals of an area I never would have thought to look up. Yes, I sound VERY American saying that, but it has more to do with none of my ancestry being there. So I'm so glad YOU made it and sent it to me! I love your drawings, too, what talent, and excellent use of color. Thanks so much for sharing your fabulous creative zine!
Comment: A fun little tourism/geography little book of Scandinavia. I google streetviewed Mariehamn because I have never heard of it. What a charming town. Nice drawings. I'm impressed. the map on the back is a nice touch. Thank you for sharing it with me.
Comment: I absolutely loved what you sent. It arrived just after I got home from hospital with baby and brought me to tears. I can't wait to start opening each envelope. I really hope you're hand is doing okay and healing well xx
Comment: Sorry bout late rating, I do awful with non-mailbox rates! No excuse! I love love love your spring zine, and it's so colorful! I have already printed it and made it up and it's even BETTER when read the way it's meant to be. Excellent and thank you!
Comment: Elinor, thank you so much for the mini zine! I especially like the quotes and the drawings of the flowers. The Spring Bingo game on the back was clever! I've never thought of adding a game to my zines! Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much! I can't wait to open it 😁
Added: omg! I loved the package you made! I loved everything that you put in! Thank you so so much. If you are interested in doing private swaps/penpalling, let me know 😁
Comment: Hi Elinor, I have received all the items sent for this swap! The photos were my favorite so far, though everything was wonderful and it's clear you were sending things I would like. :) (Ferris wheel!) Thank you for going above and beyond in this swap.
Comment: So sorry I missed rating you earlier!!! I know I got it because I sent it in the next round. Thanks so much!!! And I know you included extras and I'm pretty sure I've used them already too!! 💛💛💛
Comment: Wow I love the selection and the stories! I haven't been through eastern Europe at all, and I would love to go. It's been a long time since I was in Japan, and it would be interesting to go back! What cool post-themed stamps you found, too :D I also have more hotel stationery so I might host another swap - maybe a longer lead time...?
Comment: You deserve more than one heart for this fantastic pouch ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’›â¤ðŸ’šðŸ’• Your envelope is perfect to begin with and the feel of the package, oh my.....so promissing. The color, the shape, the fabric, all so very nice. And on top of all this you put in extra's with so much thoughtfulness. I feel so lucky I am your partner. This gives me much inspiration for future projects!!
Comment: What a truky wonderful package of goodies! I will definitely add this coloring book to my purse for those long waits I have frequently at the doctors offices. The bits and pieces of paper ephemera and lovely, but I nearly swooned over the precious postcard! Absoluteky wonderful, thank you so very much!

Comment: I got your parcel yesterday and everything looks wrapped so pretty. I kinda cheated and open the two which may have melted (they didnt so yay!) I cant wait to see what is in each package it looks so cool. Thank you for thoughtfulness! Have an amazing day!
Comment: Thank you so much for the fat quarter! It is so perfect, in two weeks we are off to London and when I travel I try and buy fabric to make something as a reminder from the trip. You've started me off before we even go. It is great...I'm happy.
Comment: Sorry for the late rating. Thanks for such a lovely swap. The flow journal is just so great. And I love the hedgehog note card. Thanks so much for this, it made me really happy when it arrived :)
Comment: Hooray! Love getting happy mail from you. Am so enjoying what I've received. Will update later but wanted to thank you now. ðŸ’–

*Another update: The book you made is absolutely amazing! I am so grateful to have you as my partner for this swap. Thank you a million times over. And I hope your sewing and social projects are going well too. ðŸ’–
Comment: Thanks Elinor for the delightful envelope filled with fun! I loved your fanciful writing for the address, the decorated envelope really made me smile after a long day and challenging commute. I will definitely enjoy the stickers, paper clips, and notes. Thanks so much!!
Comment: You wowed me with your swap, It's all wrapped up so cute, you impressed me ... the puppy and kitty stickers are wonderful, I adore them, and the postcards represented me 100% ... I had never received a "holographic cat" postcard ... my happiness is total ... surprises are already in my Christmas stocking ... thank you very much, I thank you with all my heart for all the effort you put into this swap... Merry Christmas!
Comment: What a great doodled envie, looks like you had a lot of fun covering it! Your letter was a joy to read, I know they feeling not wanting to unpack after moving - although the unpacking is SO much easier than packing! I hope you get some time to your quilting - one project I have never had the chance to try, I am not careful enough, I think! Thank you for all the goodies, including the giant Joker!!
Comment: Hi Elinor...I received your postcard today thank you. I have a ton of different washi tape, but it always surprises many how many different one are out there! Like I had not seen any like yours before. Yet we still look for that one that we will love...let alone the small fortune! Again, thank you. ðŸ˜Šâ¤ï¸
Comment: I just got my happy envelopes this morning.
Can't wait to open the first one tomorrow.
I will come back and write more when I opened them all. Might be a bit longer than a week though, I'm flying out to cyprus for a week on saturday. and am not sure if I will have internet connection there.
Ok I only opened 2 so far... but i just had to add the heart now! Love it! I'm sure I'll continue to love the others as well.
To bad I can't add a heart for every one of the 7 envelopes.
Comment: Elinor you are the bomb!!! really you surprised me so much!! I love absolutely everything about the package, the stickers, the magnet and postcards, even the metro ticket! I feel like I know Derby already :) thanks darling! definitely one of the best swaps I've ever received
Comment: Thank you so much, I love everything! Hopefully I'll get the chance to write back sometime. Thanks so much for all the thoughtful items, and for (obviously) checking out my profile to send me things I love :)
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely package. The socks were so lovely and I love that you took time to check my profile about my likes and dislikes. I also loved that beautiful notebook. It was a pleasure to open each and every little thing. Thank you. ðŸ’•
Comment: Thank you for the lovely sticker sheets you chose for me (butterflies, owls, & sweet stuff). It's perfectly fine to me if ever you need to cut a sheet to fit in the envie. The added memo sheets were cute. :)
Comment: Hi there, thank you so much for your air mail/travel themed mail. A little bit more decoration on the envelope would of been great but I still liked it :) I loved all the little pieces you included inside, it was a great selection! The little circle flag stickers are cool. Thanks again!
