Comment: Thank You Ahdridri,
Your decorated envelope us fun and cute and it alone brightened my day. Your friendly letter is the best though, thank you for this. Mint I think is the Houdini of the herb world, unpredictably disappearing and then reappearing somewhere else entirely; defying weather, animals, and mowers. It's very adventurous. We have a patch of spearmint that travels all around the yard. Your pot of sorrel does sound beautiful! ☘
Our growing season is over now but we do get the prettiness of snow.
Thank You for the many lovely stickers as well,
Happiness and Peace to you
Comment: You did an excellent job on this pocket, and I love your story. Thank you so much for the extra goodies. I love the mushroom and snowflake stickers — and the love paper clip. Thank you for a great swap.
Comment: Adriana~ Thank you for your Halloween Card #13. I loved the envelope decorations~ just perfect! I also loved the packet of Blue Lotus herbs and suggestions for use!! I loved the Wax Seal you sent and absolutely adore the glassine envelope and Earth Element tag! Do you buy your envelopes or do you make them? If you purchase them, do you mind sharing your source? I love that you are right across the bay from me, too!!! Thank you, again, for your Happy Halloween swap thoughtfulness! Be Blessed!!! Karen Rinehart
Response: Hey Karen! I wish I had a source for you, I actually got a giant bag of them from a friend of a friend who was decluttering- they were all just loose in a publix bag!
Comment: Thank you for the great swap!!! I love your mail art! And thank you for the wonderful inserts. :)))
I love the cute squirrel and acorn stickers and the homemade envelopes. I can really use the autumn stickers and other goodies too! Thanks so much!
Comment: Thansk for the great Smokey Bear cut and paste postcard! It makes me curious about the Smithsonian magazine issue that it came from. I'm glad that Ian missed you... I certainly understand your relief having been through, and been missed by, a few hurricanes myself. Best wishes!
Comment: Offbeat art is the BEST kind of art 💜 I love all of the different flowers and plant life you've worked into this ATC, and the colors of the skull are so bright and pretty! And I absolutely love The Importance of Being Earnest. It always makes me smile~
Comment: Adriana oh my goodness this package totes made my day ! I love the stickers you decorated envie with esp the big balloon. I love the Florida pc! The Disney stickers are awesome! I love love love the owls! Perfect! I know micah will love the coloring book too. Thank you for the great package and I wish you a sunshiny sparkly funtabulous day! 😊 ☀️ ☮️
Comment: Hi Adriana! I absolutely love everything you have send me again ❤️ Adding the tea for me is so kind of you! If you have Instagram we could talk about a private swap there 🥰 feel free to message me there @buzzygirl93 😊
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for all the goodies! I love everything! The pocket and tag will definitely go into my journal and all of the stickers and washi are just my style! I also love the darling tea bags! Thanks again!
Comment: Adriana, what a lovely job you did on these envies. Each one is unique and no not too busy or me. I like all your fun elements. Thanks for joining my swap and for the extra goodies. Such cute butterflies and flowers. Hugs from Arkansas
Comment: Thanks for the "ugly" PC. Just like you I wouldn't exactly call it ugly but I agree that it's just too busy. Plus I'm not really into floral designs. But hey... that just makes this card perfect for this swap! ;-)
Comment: Adriana, oh my goodness, I have tears of joy in my eyes after reading your note and opening your swap! My heart has truly been touched and feels so happy and warm right now. I wish I could put it into better words. You have truly brought so much happiness into my life with this beautiful swap! I also can't believe this is only your 4th ATC! It look AMAZING in every single way and it is so perfectly put together!! It looks like you have been creating them for years!! Thank you so much for your kind words about my graduation and about my Kiwi. I truly do appreciate that and you so much! I loved how you went into detail with your thought process in how you created this ATC! It was so fun to feel like I was watching the process in my head! And to also know how much thought you put into it, made my heart feel so full. I truly love every single that you sent with my whole heart. I am super excited to add the ATC into my collection and I love the adorable extras that you sent as well! I truly wish I had better words to describe how much I love and appreciate everything. I am so grateful for you<3 You are such a beautiful soul<3 Thank you so so much for everything<3<3
Response: Oh my goodness now I'm crying!! Thank you so much for allowing Kiwi to be my muse for that card, it was such a joy to make, but not nearly as amazing as reading your response! I really appreciate everything you said, and equally have no words to express how squishy and happy your comment has made me! What an awesome website and world :)
Comment: Thank you so much. It's a great ATC, especially as it's one of your first. Dr. Strange is one of my favorite movies, so it's what I thought of also for the bottom. And your envelope and letter is fantastic too. Definitely qualifies as amazing mail art, and I would be happy to swap with you anytime.
Response: Oh yay!!! I'm so happy to hear you liked it, thank you so much!! And of course thank you for setting up the swap :)
Comment: Adriana! This is an amazing package. It was a little banged up by shipping but I love love everything. I love Pooh and I love love the M journal. My hubby’s name also starts with m so this is awesome ! I love love this so so much ! Thanks bunches and my bestie loves llamas and tink so I will be passing along to her again a big thanks
Response: Yayy!!! I'm so glad you liked the book so much, I was so excited when I found it! What a perfect fit :)
Comment: You did a great job on your first flip pocket book. I love the little envelope you added in the side pocket. The paper and images are so pretty. And, so many goodies inside. Thank you so much.
Response: You're very welcome, I'm glad you liked it!!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note and ATC for this swap. I think you don't have anything to worry about- your ATC techniques are spot on! There's only 2 tiny things that I might suggest, and that is to make sure to trim any elements that might hang off the main body of the card to make sure it slides into and out of the protective sleeve easier. You shouldn't have to force it into the standard trading card sleeves, if you do its just a hair too wide. Second is just a tiny thing, You forgot to put your swap-bot user name on the back of the card! Now on to the things I LOVED- I loved the color scheme that you chose, and I really like the layering and the golden triangles over the girls eyes. Thank you for such a cool and interesting and frankly, AWESOME ATC.
Response: Oh my goodness I can't believe I forgot to put my SB name hahaha. Thank you so much, I'll definitely make sure to trim a little more! But mostly thank you so so much for being my first ATC swap and giving such great and kind feedback! I'm so glad you liked the card, I'm sure I'll be making many more after this great experience :)
Comment: I absolutely love everything you have send me! These stickers are so precious. Thank you! ❤️ I'll pass on your postcard in the next round 😊. If you ever want to do a private swap let me know and I can send you Flow Magazine goodies I'm not using 🙂
Comment: Thank you so much for the Great Mail Art! I know your area well! My sister used to live in Clear Water before moving to St. Pete Beach! Love the area! When we had our boat we did take it down there for a couple of weeks!
Comment: Oh my goodness!!! I wish I could give more hearts!!! Thank you so very much for the wonderful mail and all the goodies!!! Stickers are always welcome for me lmao. They'll get put in my album!!!!! Thank you and take care of yourself!!!
Comment: Hi Adriana, Thank you so much for your wonderful package brimming with a variety of goodies. Loving the collage work on the outside of the envelope. I’m anxious to dig in and create. One of the first things I’ll likely use is the music paper for an upcoming swap. Thanks for everything❤️
Comment: I adore the bookmark you sent and also the sticky note you wrote! A very pretty sticky note! Also, love the glittery card stock you made the envelope from. I'll pass these pc's on. P.S.- I love the little connectors and will figure out something to make with them! P.S. - Thank you for sending my postcard home to me!
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcards to pass on, they’ll be going out today! Also, thank you for the wonderful stickers you included! I especially loved the cute curled up fox and the adorable mushroom. Thanks!
Comment: Hi Adriana! Thank you so much for all the adorable cat goodies! The mug and cat flip book were just too cute, and I absolutely loved it all (heart)! It also made me soo happy to see the Alice in Wonderland teas in there, two of my fave things wrapped into one :-)
Response: Yay!!! It was really so fun to put that one together, I could practically feel all the cozy cat cuddle tea times you'd be having! Wishing you and your fur babies the best :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the amazing tapes and all those extra's. I'll hope you are feeling 100% again. Take care!
Response: Yay, I'm so glad you liked them! Thank you so much for being so cool with the delay :) I'm finally in that post-illness glow stage where I'm very aware of how good and healthy I feel. Life is good!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcards! I laughed at the lady wearing shorts and high heels picking bananas! How funny! The extra goodies were such a lovely treat! How kind of you to send what you knew would make my heart smile! I wish I could give you more than 1 heart.
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything, this comment made me smile so much!!
Comment: Adorable Koala PC!! Love it!! You are so right,..they are basically sloths! AHAH! apparently the eucalyptus is a sedative so they are sleepy so often because it's their main food source. Interesting to learn!! xx G
Comment: Thank you so much for the very special (and yes... dark) postcard. And I totally get what you mean... I love tasteful nude photography but would never send a card like that to someone who's not listing that as a like on their profile. People could feel intimidated or offended. That being said... I'm up for almost any type of card. I love variety!
Comment: Wow! You really went above and beyond! :) Thanks so much for the recipes - pumpkin pie is one of my favroites, anyway, and I've never had luck with key lime, so I'll try yours. :) I can't usually eat biscotti b/c I'm allergic to almonds - all the packaged ones contain them in one way or another - but actually hadn't considered making my own. haha I'll try yours! Thanks so much.
The divider is AMAZING!!! Way above and beyond, and as I said, you inspired an idea I'm working out for a future swap! :)
Thank you thank you!!
Response: Oh yay, I'm glad you liked it all so much! I had a lot of fun with the divider :) Good luck on the pie!
Comment: Thank you for sharing what I call little bits of hope. I just love them I will be planting even more this year. I think I'll have to get more raised beds. I know OH poor me :-) Have a blessed day.
Response: Oh my goodness that's beautiful! I'll be doing some garden work tomorrow and I'll be thinking about that as I plant my own lil bits of hope :) Wishing you the most beautiful and lush Spring season
Comment: My heart exploded. I'm 400% for lace and tiny apothecary bottles so you struck it big. The poor envelope looked like the mail clerks took turns kicking it against a wall but the bottles are unscathed! I have the exact same chai tea but mines all old and sad, but since it costs a mint I haven't the will to buy more, so it was awesome to make a fresher cup of it. Thank you!
Response: Yay!!! I'm glad you liked it so much and that it all got to you okay!
Comment: Thanks so much for everything! I especially like the "love" burlap pencil pouch, purple fuzzy socks, lemon pomegranate cream, & the fingerless gloves. Thanks so much for all the effort you put into the box of goodies that you sent to me.
