Comment: Thank you for sharing your thoughts on family with me. It's wonderful that you have taken your past negative experiences and used them to learn from and make things better, not only for yourself, but for your family. This was such a positive letter - it brightened my day :)
Comment: Thank you for the bookmark with interesting quotes. A friendly reminder: please remember to include the swap name in your note. Fortunately this is a bookmark swap (and I only joined one) and not a Valentine's Day card swap 😂. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the postcard. Well mine was so different from yours as it's totally abstract and like a jigsaw puzzle. Your card didn't really travel well as a corner was torn and the piece with the berries did not stick well to the card. Maybe you may consider using a plastic sleeve to protect your postcard in the future.
Comment: Thanks for this great scrappy envelope and the extra bookmarks! I too have bits that I have saved for such a swap as this one, just because. Funny how that happens! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you for the pc, I would have rated a "5" if you'd let me know about your health issue any time in the last month before I messaged you. But because you didn't let me know, and it arrived after over a month, I'm rating a "3".
Comment: Thank you for sharing your top 5 with me, Haven. My condolences on the loss of your friend, what a sad tragedy. I hope all is well with your new house and cat! Happy New Year - I wish you all the best in 2023 (and a better year than the past three!)
Comment: Thank you for the Great Basin postcard. I actually have this set of postcards but I really like the quote you wrote. Perhaps every angry bird or person, in his/her deepest essence, is helpless and wants our love and care 😂
Comment: Thanks for using a very intersting PC. I did read The Old Patagonia Epress some time ago -- I read all that writers books I come across (he write lots of travel books plus some interesting novels.)
Response: I'm going to keep trying - I'll find a book you haven't read yet! You are amazingly well-read.
Comment: Your swap arrived this morning (delayed, I suspect, by the British postal strikes!) Thanks so much for sharing your reading plans for the next few months and for the lovely feather bookmark! Your list of books in the house waiting to be read is an interesting one and I hope you find pleasure in all of them. Bird by Bird is one I hope to read someday and the Byline Bible looks good -- I've added it to my 'books to ask for at the library' list! Thanks for joining the swap.
Comment: Thank you for the book recommendations and the tea. Lemon ginger sounds lovely!! Can't wait to give it a try. I'm betting that we will like the Edmund Crispin books because they are the same era as the Poirot stories that we love.
Comment: Thank you for your resend, Haven. It arrived today with a red stamp in the corner where postage’s supposed to go though. Apparently it wasn’t mailed with any postage stamps affixed? I owe my postal carrier now. 🤷🏽♀️
Comment: Your card arrived safe and sound! Thanks a lot for old book pages (I love tose gothic german font<3) :) And you are right The card resembles the libraries in big cities :) Thanks for this happy mail !
Comment: how fun that you celebrated your kitty's bday! hope all goes well with the move and that you had a nice visit with your niece :)
Response: The vet send us a notice stating it was the cat's birthday, we sing Happy Birthday and then give them a treat. The only way I remember their birthday is when I get that email but we have a lot of fun doing it!
Comment: Your letter got here super fast! I guess to make up for the mail eating the first one? ♥ I love the note card you used (the paper feels so cool!), and the kitties you sent 🐈 You know, I've been thinking about actually writing in a journal. I'm so bad at doing things daily, though...
Comment: Partner sent message that she didn't finish the book and gave no evaluation or explanation regarding subject matter or reason why she chose the book. She sent email message to say she didn't read it.
Response: I did send a message stating why I chose the book. You then stated that I needed to read the book. I did read the book and sent you a message, although I admit it was late. As I stated I'm working three jobs and I'm doing the best that I can. I accept this three because I did not to meet the timeline but note: I did finish the book. I did send a message (before I finished) explaining why I chose the book.
Comment: Thanks, Haven! I love the Gorey background and the funny image you found. It’s helpful if you write the whole swap name out. This took some digging to find which swap it was. (I mostly do postcard swaps on postcrossing- so I thought it was that) But I glad I found it, so I can give you a heart for a great card.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful postcard and reading my profile with such a care that you noticed my wish to receive in an envelope :)! I really appreciate to have this awesome card undamaged. And what a co-incidence that I just finished Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments-series few weeks ago and really loved it. Thank you also for so many book recommendations, most of them are new to me. Nancy Midford I’ve read and really like her books :). Really love all you sent me, so thank you once again!
Comment: WHAT???? I just now saw that we were partners in both these swaps. That's so odd because I participated in 2 and also had the same send-to partner in them ;) That postcard is co creepy. Ha ha. Very funny message. It made me laugh. Thanks!
Comment: I used to think that my mailman doesn't know English but today he was looking at me a bit weirdly. I saw your message and now I think I know why ;). Sorry about the vibrator. Hope the battery didn't die because of my little chase with the cat. The postcard is beautiful. Thanks a lot! Your story was so funny :).
Response: I'm glad you found it funny. My husband laughed until he cried but I was afraid that he might it was a bit too risque.
Comment: I absolutely LOVE the note card! Those cats are so cool, and the colors are really fun~ ♥ Thank you for the little note sheets (the yarn kitty is so cute!), and the rad llama / dino tag. I think I want to hang that one up on the corkboard wall. It just makes me smile to look at~!
Comment: Your profile is also super fun ♥ I love meeting people who aren't afraid to embrace the silliness in life~ And, while I don't really want to be an alien, I joke daily about wanting a robot body or about becoming an energy being. Probably the robot body, though, because that way I'd still be able to cuddle with the cats~
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful swap. I love the tin, bookmarks, button covers, stickers, fabric and the magnet. And I love the artwork on my package. Lol. Thanks for making my day. 😊
Response: Thank you so much for being patient. It was a perfect storm at our house - a sick kid, a car that broke down, just everything you can imagine. I'm glad that you liked it and again, thank you so much for being patient
Comment: Phew! I finally figured out which swap this was. I see that you are new to Swap-bot (Awesome, welcome!)
Please remember to include the “name of the swap” on the note with your name so swappers know where to find and rate you.
Comment: Hello Haven, your typed letter is so easy to read, thank you for typing it. For "flimsy social interaction" , you've found a good place to start changing it. I couldn't find the "hotdog" sticker you referred to until I looked closely at the pretty pink rose and LOL it says HOTDOG ! I love washi tape with butterflies, but love love washi with words. You and I have much alike, except, my mom was a very messy crafter and didn't mind my mess at all. I'm excited to write you back, have a great day !7
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I enjoyed writing to you - it was great fun! ANd I'm gald you were able to find hotdog on the sticker. I was sorting through my stickers, thought the rose one was pretty and then discocvered that it said hot dog! It was too cool not to send!
Comment: I received your swap yesterday, but I didn't want to rate until I followed the directions ♥ Thank you for sharing your struggle with me, and I want you to know that I was wishing for your happiness while I followed along with the note you wrote!
Response: I hope you enjoyed the show! WIsh paper is so cool - I could burn an entire pack in one sitting.
