Comment: Thank you so much for the USS Arizona Memorial card, I'm thinking of starting a collection of just these. It's such a special place and truly unique. I hope you had a nice time on the tour, how exciting!
Response: I'm glad I could send you something nice for your postcard collection. It is a very somber place. And the tour was beautiful. Not only did we get to see the Arizona, but a few of the other sunken ships still in the harbor. Everybody knows he Arizona because that memorial is open to the public. It surprised me that there were a few other memorials only accessible by boat. Pearl Harbor is such a fascinating place! I'll definitely go back again to visit.

Comment: Great tiger from the zoo, both of my postcards from this swap were tigers from a zoo, just different zoos, so that is kinda cool. Thank you. The note about you being a member of the zoo society makes it extra special as did you stomping the Hawaiian hula girl and the stickers.
Response: glad you like the postcard i picked out for you! :) thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the PC and the "happy birthday."

Comment: Thanks for the beautiful card, Jennifer! Once, a very long time ago, I rode a bike along that stretch of Oahu with my husband and his Aunt Ulu, a native Hawaiian. Our trip ended with ditching the bikes in some bushes and walking to a waterfall where we swam in sparkling clear (and cold!) water. That memory is close to 30 years old--thanks for bringing it back to me!

Comment: Jennifer, I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have this pc of The Hollywood Bowl! My aunt was a pretty famous singer in her day and performed there in the 1940s. As many times as I have been to L.A., I've never been able to talk my husband into going to see the place for myself either during the daytime or for a concert or show in the evening.

Comment: I love the envelope. It looks like you put a lot of time into it. The tea bag magnets were a good idea.Thanks!

Comment: Thank you very much for your patience in receiving a rating Jen :) This postcard just arrived this past week in Cambodia! Even though it was postmarked on 22 Nov 2011 (before the send by date!), it just now arrived in my PO Box. I picked it up on 6 April 2012, which is a little more than 4 months travel time...perfect timing to celebrate the Cambodian New Year! I love the old fashioned Santa!

Comment: Thanks for the great Penguin postcard. I stopped adding books to my bookshelf to read - and now add them to the Kindle app on my iPad. It's deceptive. Actually, I listen to audio books from the library during my long commute.

Makes me want to watch it again:) *edit* What??? You mailed me even more? Thank you so much, what a nice surprise the teas and cute note are!

Response: thanks again for joining my swap! there should be another "something" arriving in your mailbox soon, too. :) thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for *two* wonderful postcards. I love both. The Disney maximum is great to have (yes, I too want a fairy godmother) and so is the dragon. I've been reading books about dragons lately - they are real, aren't they? (I put Disney in my no thank you list so people don't send me Disney stickers in a kawaii swap.)

Comment: Thanks for the lovely handmade note! I really agree with that stamp about tea time, I should do that more often. ^_^ Congrats on getting to meet Neil Gaiman! That's so awesome, I'm sure it'll be amazing. I have wanted to read The Graveyard Book but haven't yet, but I love Neverwhere. I also adore Halloween and the crisp scent of fall in the air with rotting leaves on the way. Those treats looks delicious, sinful and easy--so I'll have to try them out! Thanks for the tea, don't think I've tried these types before <3
Response: thanks for the compliments! :) i do hope you enjoy the recipe and the teas! thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: This was one FAB swap. :D Thank you so much for your wonderful work in my journal â€“ I LOVE it all. :D And of course loved working with everyone elseâ€™s journal in return. Iâ€™m the proud owner of a paranormal book now, heeheeh. Iâ€™ve actually *met* orbs too â€“ but on photos. So I guess Iâ€™ve quite a couple of photos to proof that. They were really surreal and I find they appear on my photos on certain times and places that are kind of similar. Theyâ€™re fascinating! :D
Response: i had too much fun with your little journal! i'm glad you like what i didn. :) thanks for the rating and the heart and the great swap!
Comment: Awesome!!! Thanks for all the great links! I love the color schemes and can't wait to give them a go :) Love the mustaches, cute bugs and face doodles. The story of button is beyond cute! Was it inspired by the Tim Burton exhibit? The squirrel made from a glove is super awesome! I'll have to give the zentangles a go. They do look relaxing. I used to do something similar to it in H.S.

Comment: Hi darlin'! Love this series, this is a new one for me! I actually just saw Creature from the Black Lagoon on the big screen recently, there's an improv group here that dubs funny voices and sounds over old movies (kinda like MST3k). It's hit and miss (like all improv?!) but when it's funny it's hilarious. :)

Comment: I'm so sorry for the late rating on this; I really thought I'd already rated it. I loved the PC you sent me of the old women in dresses from '39. For 1939 they actually looked really modern. And the two older women - to think they were not only alive in Victorian times, but *adults*...! In fact, they were alive when Oscar Wilde was still alive. Holy yikes!!

Response: glad you like the card! and nice to hear you had a nice time in Hawaii too. :) thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Oh, just beautiful. Renoir's colors are magical. I pretty much flipped out when I saw my first Van Gogh (at the Palace of Fine Arts in SF) -- there's nothing like seeing it in person, is there? Thanks so much!
Response: i'm glad you like it! and i really LOVE to see art up close and in person! :) there's truly nothing like it. my favorite piece has to be Michelangelo's David! :) thanks for the nice comments and the heart!

Response: i'm glad you like the postcards. :) i think of Pearl Harbor every December and remember how my grandma used to tell us stories about how they had to "black out" their windows, had curfews, and rationed food during the war. i hope the postcards make good additions to your collection. thanks for the nice rating and the heart!

Comment: ***Squeak!*** Girl, Hufflepuff pride right here! Your ATC is too cute. ***Squeak!*** The snitch is the freaking best! ***Squeak squeak!!*** It's so glittery and the wings are pretty. Did you stitch them?? Thank you so ***squeaking*** much. =D
Response: LOL! i'm glad that you like the speaking snitch and the Hufflepuff atc! :) i had fun making these for you! and yes, i stitched mostly everything on the sewing machine. it was quiet a challenge... but i think it turned out fun in the end! thank you for the fun comments and the heart!
Comment: You sure like Twilight! I only read the first book and haven't seen the movies. The last time I was in Forks was pre-Twilight and it was just a sleepy, rainy town. Must have changed since then.
Response: haha, no it's still a really small town, but i think the Twilighters are helping with their economy. all the stores sell some kind of twilight or Forks goodie. and there's a bit more traffic from the tour-buses. it's a very quiet and sweet place! i'm glad i got to visit! :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing. You are more of a geek than me. I just cart around marshmallow peeps to take pictures in different locals, nothing as huge as a paper cutout! WTG!! Loved it and I am not a twilightard (sp), but did enjoy the books.
Response: hahah.... i know. i get weird looks from people when i pull out my doll. he's only about palm sized, but still very funny! i'm glad you approve of my geekiness! thanks for the nice rating and the heart!

Response: i'm glad you like it! :) i had fun making it for you! maybe you can use it the next time you use your new sewing machine! then you don't have to worry about your pincushion walking away! haha!
Comment: This package warmed my heart. I love the fact that you really personalized every thing. The beautifully sewn bad and tissue holder are adorable! I love the tags as I use them on every thing but I will horde them for awhile! The address labels are in great need here. All the little silver birdies also have found a new home.

I almost forgot.... thanks for sending me even more Twi-goodies!!!!!
Response: i'm glad you like it! :) it's not as pretty as most altered journals turn out, but that's what my own journals look like (more scrapbookish than wordy). :) i hope you can use it to fill up with HAPPY things. thank you for the sweet comments and the heart!
Comment: it looks like Crusher had an awesome time with you! i'm rather jealous that he got to have crab-- they looked yummy! and i hope he was a big help at work, i bet he's a good sniffer and made sure the vessels were all contraband-free :-) thanks for the really great swap!
