Comment: Thank you for sending. You didn't include the swap name, though so I had to look through all my sent swaps. :(
marinda rated for Postalette / Fold N Seal Swap #9 on Aug 28, 2023
Comment: Hello! Thank you so much for the cute fold and seal and nice letter! I have never seen a fold and seal quite like this. I ejoyed reading your letter. Rambling letters are my favorite. It's fun to try to follow someone else's train of thought. That Folk fest sounds like a lot of fun, but not in that heat! Here, we never do anything at all outside (except swim) from Mid-May until Mid-October. I understand your exhaustion for sure!! Thank you for the awesome postcard, too. I envy you working in a castle like that!! That is pretty neat.

Comment: Very cool postalette. I have found fold-n-seals at the thrift store and on EBay. I had some vintage ones that I had from my teenage years. They are harder to find. I always feel like I’ve hit the lottery when I find them. Have a great week!
