Comment: Hi Donna! Thank you so much for the very cute Christmas mouse postcard--I love it! Wishing you a very merry Christmas and I'm sure, like here in Texas, that you Floridians will have no snow on Christmas Day! Heh! Thanks again for brightening up my mailbox!
Comment: Thank you for the goodies. I just started playing with altered matchboxes and the butterflies are perfect. Bob & I just moved here to TN from Sarasota! I had lived there since 2002. It is quite a change to be back in the cold weather.
Response: I just moved to Sarasota from NC...lol. It is a big change for me too. Glad you liked the goodies. Take Care and thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Donna! Oh my goodness! I just received this swap in my mailbox today! It has certainly been floating around for a while! It was God's perfect timing! I needed a little pick me up today. I love the little bears and all the fun treasures you sent! :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful pictures you sent. I always love taking pictures of rainbows. Sometimes I get lucky and get a double rainbow. I also love taking pictures of the clouds. Loved the blooming cactus and the pretty bird. Is that your bird?. Thanks for everything.
Comment: Hi Donna! Wow :) I loved receiving your envelope with the sweet Lab puppies. They are so cute. And I was really very happy with receiving the calendar/planner booklet. I adore the little white piggie on the cover with the pink butterfly wings and tiara, and I also really needed to have a planner/calendar! And thanks for thoughtfully including a book page written in French. Very Cool!
Comment: Thank you Donna for the great Christmas cards and the extras, they're awesome!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas this time and can adjust the volume of food, if you have some left I'll be happy to receive it hehe :)
Comment: Thank you for the post card of the taj mahal. I bet the Smoky Mountains is beautiful in the fall. I have only been there in the summer and winter, but would like to go at least once when the leaves are changing colors. I'm sorry it took me a while to rate, we have had a nasty bug going through our house.
Comment: Love your Mini Wheats oversized card! It was really fun to receive in my post box. I always wonder what the mail workers think of our silly mail fun! I hope it makes them smile. Have a great day! :-)
Response: Glad you liked it and thanks for the heart:)
I wonder about the mail workers also. I am sure it makes there day brighter.
Comment: love the pictures, thank you. it was so interesting to read where you found them. i can't believe someone would throw away all of their photographs!
edit: i LOVE those vintage circus stamps!!!! *_*
Response: I could not believe it either. I made my son promise he would not throw away any of my photographâ€™s. It was sad to see all there mothers things just thrown in bags out at the road. Thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Thank you so much for the Sharpies and extras! I'm so sorry you had to send this twice. You were very generous!
Response: Your very welcome and thank you for the heart. It was no problem. You should not suffer because someone at the post office stole the pens out of the package. I was very upset and logged a complaint. The post office said the package got damaged and the pens must have fallen out. So I guess that gives them to right to take them and send me the package back in a plastic baggie that said sorry your package got damaged.
Comment: Thank you for the very pretty card. I love the colors and glitter and I will use the enclosed extras. I enjoy swapbot very much myself and have gained some,wonderful friends in the short time I have been on here. Happy friendship day. Have a wonderful weekend.
Response: Glad you liked it and thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Donna, Thank you so much for a stuffed envie of the most awesome, cute bear notecards. I adore them. The pretty ribbons are so nice. it will be fun to decorate cards and gifts with them and the handmade envelopes are beautiful! Did you make them?
Response: Glad you liked the package and thanks for the heart:) Yes I made the envies I sent to you.
Comment: Hello & thanx for the neat chunk PC! You crack me up. I thought I was the only one who bought products just to turn the packaging into a PC!!! Duh! I almost bought a case of some sort of iced tea in a can at walmart last week bc I loved the Asian ladies on the box. BUT I didn't. Now that's restraint. Ta-da!
Blessings & smiles,
Response: Things we do for swap-bot:) so crazy, Thank you for the heart.
Comment: What an awesome package to receive on this so hot day. Makes being inside a treat. I love the soccer Post-Its, so darn cute! Bella loved the little notebook and crayons she was eager to get writing. The sandal memo notebook was adorable. The charms were lovely, and the paper clips post its were so cute too. I love the stickers and the stationary. Thank you for everything, a very nice package. :)
Response: Glad you and Bella liked the package. Thanks you very much for the heart:)
Comment: Just love the Hello Kitty items! Thanks very much for the Disney key chain-- love the detail of the characters and that it is from back in 2001. Doily and papers, too and cute tape on the envelope. Thanks for a fun swap!
Response: You are very welcome. Glad you liked the package and thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Now this is how to make a piece of cardboard fun!! Love it!! Ha ha, like you, we have a lot of "special" stuff around here because of their interesting wrappers. I wonder if the wyngz tasted as good as they looked :) Thanks, Doskie
Response: Glad you liked the chunk and thanks for the heart:) Yes the wings are delicious but spicy enough that you need a glass of ice tea. LOL
Comment: Thank you,Donna for such an amazing swap!! I was absolutely thrilled by every single piece you'd included!!Loved dollar bills, coins and rad napkins! The envelope is also so pretty!! It arrived here on Feb.14th but I picked it up yesterday before work. Thank you so much again!Happy Swapping!
Response: So glad it made it too you. Your welcome and very happy I sent the right things for you:) Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the plate. As naked mail is an experiment, I should tell you (in the name of science) that it broke in shipping. I can send you pictures. It is pretty cool. That I you for swapping and for resending! This is fun.
Response: Glad you got this one and very sorry it broke. That is probably what happened to the first one and they just threw it away but this one had tracking on it so they could not just trow it away. Again Sorry it broke and thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Guess what just came in the mail, special delivery by the Postman?? Your plate!!! Not sure why they didn't deliver it with the rest of the mail this morning, butt hey just came to the door and left it. It's AWESOME!!! I've never gotten anything sent naked through the mail that wasn't paper... thank you for being the first one!! I wish I could give you more than one heart and 5 because the first one disappeared :( They probably broke it, knowing the Post Office. But this one made it!!!!! Thank you so much :)
Response: So glad you got it:) and you like it. It really upset me the other one went missing. I know now to always put tracking. Thank you for the heart:)
Comment: Wonderful batch of cards, Donna! My favourites are the Clockwork B&W, and of course the beautiful puppy ... I would so like to have a dog, but I already have a 24 lb cat in my small apartment! Maybe some day.
Response: Thank you for the heart:) I am glad these cards got to you in good shape.
Comment: + 100 extra hearts~
Donna, I LOVE your bird letter! And what a treat to actually SEE the birds you're talking about! Hubby and I looked up the white ones running--we THINK they are white egrets. It was just CRAZY how close you got to the turkey! Clearly you are a bird lover. Me too! We are having a record cold spell here and I stocked up on seed/peanuts today so the poor things have something to eat. Thanks for making the swap so much fun for me to open and enjoy!
Response: Thank you so much for all the hearts:) I am glad you liked the letter and pictures so much. Stay warm and safe during the cold.
Comment: Loved everything you sent, plus the extras. Thank you so much. Also loved the envie made of a Montana map. :-) But please be careful when sealing these maps in future swaps. One side had come completely open when it arrived to me. I am shocked all of the contents hadn't fallen out. Mine arrived ok, I just don't want someone in the future to give you grief if all their stuff fell out of the envie. Thanks again for everything Donna. Hugs, Susan :-)
Response: Glad you liked the package and I am very sorry that it came open. I will be careful from now on with my sealing envelopes shut and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for this envelope filled with Harry Potter goodies! They had HP and the Half-blood Prince on TV last night. The photo of Snape on the envie made me crack up; I think it's just his face. The quotes are great. Thanks again! x
Response: Glad you liked it. I watch all the Harry Potter movies all the time. Thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Thanks for the Dr Pepper card. I like the way you decorated it. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I had a good one with my kids grandkids all their boyfriends and girlfriends and even a couple of extras
Response: Glad you liked the chunk and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Donna, I was just in Hollywood FL a month ago. I have looked at this dessert a few times and wondered, now when I can afford it, I will get it and try it. You might have just cursed me. LOL
Response: You will like this curse because it is GOOD:) Thanks for the heart.

Response: Glad you liked them and thanks for the heart:)
Comment: I LOVE the photo of your Bird of Paradise and the turtle statue. It must be nice to live in a small town and be so close to the beach! I lived in Hawaii for a few years way back when. I remember how fun it was walking to the beach after school :)
Response: Glad you liked the pics:) and thanks for the heart.

Response: No its not ice cream, it is old time soda in a glass bottle. Thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Thanks for the neat card. I lived in Battle Creek, Michigan for one year (my senior year in high school) but didn't spend much time around any kind of water. It was interesting to see the various kinds, some of which are very different from the ones on the Oregon coast where we have spent a lot of time over the years. Thanks again and happy swapping!

Comment: Very interesting postcard. Enjoyed learning a bit about the Speedwell Wolves. I just went up to northern Minnesota a couple weeks ago, and saw three wolves in the wild. It was so exciting because normally you don't see them. You hear them....but never see them.
