Comment: Thanks so very much Shana ❤ I'm guessing your lie was parents getting married 2nd time? I'm probably wrong :(
Update: 27.7.22 I received a 2nd resend swap..thankyou so very much for the great cards Shana you are amazing!
My 3 lies and truth is.....
● I have never met my real dad
● I have climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge
● My great great uncle was a famous dwarf and travelled around as a performer and was institutionalised at age 20 because of his dwarfism
● Both my parents are deceased
See if you can guess which one is lie?
Take care and enjoy your time away from swapping Shana xxx
Comment: Thank you so much for such a beautiful letter. I was touched by your descriptions of events and sense the kindness in your heart. I’m glad you chose a new path that has taken you where God had been nudging you through experiences. I’d love to write to you- let me know if interested… Happy Swaps!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely postcards, I actually really like this San Jose one :) thanks for sharing about your dream, it definitely sounds more like a nightmare :p
Hope you're well, happy swapping!
Comment: It seems the mail is on our side this time! ♥ I really love the card, thank you! And, oh yes, Siamese cats can be grumps. I had a little boy named Denny who spent more time trying to scratch me than letting me pet him, haha~
Comment: Thank you for the card! I love Louise and her drawings so so pretty! she hasn't come out with all of the states yet but so far I have them all. & 98% of the others. She's working on CT right now. Check out "The Writerie" also on ETSY and she uses clipart already made but gives a similar vibe.
Comment: Thanks so much Shana, for the perfect collection of Youtube songs ! I know just about everyone of them! I so love "Wildfire" by Michael Martin. One of my very favorites & brings back so many memories! I listened to them all ! Again perfect collections! Have a good one Shana!

Good luck to your boys and their baseball games! :)
Comment: So sorry for such a late rating! Just getting through my snailmail mountain pile after having gone through covid. Thank you for a nice letter! ^^ I too stayed in for new years - I ended up having covid JUST in time for both xmas AND N.Y.E... -.- awful, just awful. Sometimes you have to make the most out of crappy situations.

THANK YOU so much for the postcards; I love them! I'm looking forward to using them.
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap & for the pretty, shiney card. Grayson loved the jokes! You are so sweet to include him. He helped me open up all my St. Patty cards & yours was the best!

Comment: Hello, Shana! Thank you for sharing all these answers with me. I agree with you on most of them. 100% on the final question. It's wonderful that you were able to come to that place of forgiveness - I always find that it feels so much better to forgive. I hope you have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the Maryland Postcard! I have been there, an old friend moved there when we were growing up and I was lucky enough to visit her. The proximity to DC is amazing for museums and a lot of history!
Comment: Thank you for the card. I love it.
Cleveland is very NE right on the Lake. I've been to Cleveland to see The Browns lose. LOL! We use to go to Lake Erie all the time. Fishing and to fun places as a kid. I love the lighthouses and have read about some.

Comment: Thanks so much for the pretty postcard and playlist! Although the first postcard unfortunately went the way of lost mail the resend arrived safe and sound. There are a couple of songs on your list that I haven’t heard before (or at least the titles are unfamiliar), so I’ll definitely give them a listen.
Comment: Hi! Thank you for letting me share a bit of your life. It was interesting to read! I love the sweet, little embellishment and the wonderful Yorkie paper and envelopes. You said that you got the printing paper image from the Internet. How did you find it? It’s sooooo cute!!

Comment: Thank you for the Las Vegas pc and your nice message. I've been to Las Vegas several times. Both of our daughters got married there and we've gone for vacation a couple of times. We have been to the Medieval Dinner at Excalibur and it was a lot of fun. Need to go again soon!
Comment: Hi Shana!!! What a sweet letter! Happy belated Valentines Day! I enjoyed learning about how you and your husband met. Congratulations on almost 24 years together! My stepdaughter graduated 3 years ago and with COVID in between it feels like we talk to her more now than we did back in high school. Hope your son does well in baseball how exciting!! Sabrina’s old guy friend is also at a jr college working his way towards a Division 1 school and saving money at the jr college too. Will try to write you back!
Comment: Hello Shana,
I think the mail to Australia is on again! That is a scary looking bridge. Ive been on one of these kinds over a small river. Cannot say i enjoyed it and we went over one at a time!❤️
Comment: Got your letter yesterday. The yellow bee gnome stationary is so cute. I have never had UGGs are they supported inside with arch or memory foam insoles? Your holiday season sounds great. Take care and meet you at the mailbox in the future:-)

Comment: Thank you for your card. I also like these recycled card swaps. I remember there was a series of these swaps that ran for several years. It had a different theme each time I think it was every two weeks.
Comment: I have been playing Disney magic kingdoms since it came out, too! I love it! Bubly water and Dr Pepper are the only things I drink besides tea and water lol H your husband and son had a safe flight home!
Response: They don’t leave until tonight. Thank you very much!!! Do you have all the Disney characters? Who are you missing???
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Washington postcard. Yes I have been there with my husband when we traveled across the country by train. It is a beautiful state. We stayed in Seattle and enjoyed our time there.
Comment: Thank you, Shana, for your lovely winter scene that just arrived today! IDK why it took a month to travel between the states. But it's here! To answer your question, I think I had a white Christmas once or twice in my childhood when I lived in North Georgia. Down here in South Georgia I rarely see snow. We had thunderstorms and wind yesterday and now tonight it is getting down to 32° but the precipitation has passed. If it would rain tonight we probably would see snow or sleet but this is my life. Rain and it's too warm. Then freezing temps but the dry air. 😂 Have a wonderful 2022! ❤️
Comment: Hey Shana…I received RAK #1 from Amazon which was a package of Washi Tape. RAKS #2 & #3 were packaged separately but arrived at the same time. Thanks for the assorted items from my profile list.
Comment: Thank you for the resend. I will try to get you a letter out soon. I am a terrible penpal moat of the time. And I agree some people treat swapping like a job. It does put a damper on it for sure. I am juat happy for anexcuae to make art and get mail that isn't bills.
Comment: Thanks so much, for the so lovely Christmas PC Shana! Merry Christmas to you & yours too! Sorry you have to work on Christmas Day. That stinks! I have been there though, when I once worked & for an Elderly home / Manor. Every other year I had to work Thanksgiving & Christmas. Well, I hope you get to enjoy Christmas when you get home from work. 😘 Christmas here will be sort of quiet. My 2 daughters with their family again can't be here. My 4th child a son, he has to work it. But my other 2 sons will be here. So, It won't to be awful lonely. You take care & have a Happy New Year too!
Comment: Thank you for the card and note. My grandfather has been gone 37 years now. Wow, never realized that. He died when I was 12. I don't have anything that he gave me anymore so I understand not giving away that keyboard!
Comment: Hi Shana, thanks for a wonderful swap and Happy Holidays to you and yours!! I loved the awesome envelopes also, saved the cardinal envelope to do crafting with. Loved the address labels. I love cardinals too and we feed them at our feeders. Our cat loves to watch them. LOL Love the Christmas post cards and the little pocket cards you made with goodies inside. So festive. Thanks again!!
Comment: Hey Shana! Thanks so much for the Poinsettia Christmas card with nice words ( pretty!) and for Christmas die cut, & for your Favorite Christmas songs. I love all you choose! Esp. Mr. Grinch sung by Boris Karloff. But I have noticed so many others have sang it. Have a wonderful Christmas ! Thanks so much too, for joining my swap!
Comment: I got it! : Geez what was this attempt? Take 3?

Comment: I'm so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law with Crohns. How awful! Mine can eventually turn into Ulcerative colitis. I'm on an homeopathic medicine that helps. I hope everyday that I will go back into remission. Sigh... I feel so sorry for your M.I.L.
Comment: Thanks for the Brooklyn Bridge postcard. My girls, my boyfriend and I are going to my parents for Thanksgiving along with my sisters, cousin and their families. Thanks for the resend. Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
Comment: Thanks for the cute postcard! I am also writing some letters for More Love Letters and I love Postcrossing! I struggle, too, sometimes to find cool postcards. I've had some luck at Half-Price Books.
Comment: Thank you so much for the old ad card-love it! We moved into this place (brand new) a year ago. The first thing we had to do was get window treatments. We did all but two=$990. Crazy ridiculous, but we wanted good ones to block out the sun.

Comment: I loved hearing all about your plans and enjoyment of Halloween, Shana! This was a truly delightful swap with all the fun enclosed in your letter. 🖤🎃🖤
Thank you also for the stickers and amazingly spooky prints. I’m going to frame them! I love everything about this swap!
Comment: Going thru your list I heard each song. We have similar tastes. I was born in 70s listened to my parents play oldies most of y childhood. I was in elementary and middle school in the 80s. High school /college 90s I got married the first tome late 90s and was an adult in 2000s and ‘10s. Thanks for sharing
Comment: Hey Shana! Thanks so much, for the sooo cute puppy Halloween card ( I love it so much! ) and the for the Halloween washi tape and address labels. Which you did not need to do for me. But I thank you from the bottom of my heart!😘 Happy Halloween my dear! Thank you also for joining my swap!
Comment: Updated to add: OMG I can't believe you re-sent this! Thank you so much -- those address labels are PERFECT!! Love! <3
Hi! Thanks so much for your message! I'm so sad to have to tell you that it has not arrived yet. I've already asked my local post office to see if they can track what you sent, especially since we've had some misdelivery issues recently with temporary postal carriers who don't usually deliver to our apartments accidentally putting mail into other boxes. Hopefully they'll be able to find it or my neighbor who got it by accident will bring it to me. You're not the only swapper who's been affected by this, so I'll rate you a 5 in the meantime on your word that you've sent it and I'll update if/when it arrives.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely stickers. I love the fact that it has an orwhal on it. I ❣ love ❣ orwhals. My dad even gave me a stuffed one for Valentine's Day this past season. I would ❣ love ❣ to do a pocket letter swap with you. just message me when you have time. I will be here.
Comment: Shana, It was so awesome learning about you ... I "love" swaps like this one! 😊 I'm so happy that you asked about doing a private swap 'cuz if you hadn't, I wouldn't have gotten to read your answers. I just now got done reading your swap and it totally made my day. Thank you! 😊
Comment: Thank you for the fun happy mail! I love the envelope and I feel like I won the stamp jackpot! Thank you so much, I will use them in my journaling! Bless you for your work that you do in helping others. I pray you get some rest soon and that things calm down!
Comment: thank you for the Lincoln memorial pc. we were there in 2019 but I could not go up all those steps then, first because I was on crutches and second it was dark.. but I did send my phone up to the top with my granddaughter so she can take a picture for me. xx
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I've never done paper crafting myself, but it looks interesting. How did the flip book turn out? I've made ATCs before, but only using embroidery. Always fun swapping them :) All the best - Alan
Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard of Holland, Shana! I didn’t realize it got hot & humid in Holland. I visited Amsterdam 10 years ago in early May & the weather was glorious. I suppose I imagined it was always that way!
Glad to know I’m not the only one suffering in the heat & humidity. Bring on winter!!
Comment: Beautiful PC! And I would LOVE to swap directly with you! I can do a small journal but not a full one as I'm swamped with schoolwork. Send me a PM if you'd like and we can get one set up! <3 Hugs, Heidi
Comment: Beautiful card! Thanks for the resend :):) I was in Maine in the late 80s, but not since. I've been thinking about going because my husband and I both have friends that live there. It's quite an up-and-coming state! This postcard reminds me of Michigan :) Have a great day! :)
Comment: I don't rate down for resends; I understand that neither we nor the postal service is perfect. However, this was an extremely long and painful process to finally receive. I am currently receiving mail to two addresses, as is stated in my profile, and I receive mail daily from both of them. There is no reason for any confusion, but Shana repeatedly states that I gave her false information. This whole encounter was very rude and disheartening. Best of luck in the future.
Response: I guess 3rd time was the charm. Thank you for the rating. I’m glad you finally received it.
Comment: Oh my gosh, was your August eventful! Hope your boys are healing from their injuries and all the kids are having a good back to school season. I also had an eventful august—I spontaneously decided to Au Pair in Germany for a year! Thanks for resending!
Comment: Thank you very much for sending this lovely swap, so sorry that that the first one got lost! I like the variety you have chosen, all the paperfun, especially the shaped postcard! Such a lovely bear :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your story. I’m sorry it was a rough start & that people were so rude! Jeez, just have some fun, people! I, too, was frustrated in the beginning when I couldn’t get into any swaps. The stickers & tapes are so awesome! 💜
Comment: Thank you so much for the resend- I'm so sorry mail seems to be slow and/or not arriving right now! It's so frustrating when that happens I know! I really appreciate the effort you put in though and am very grateful for the resend! <3 Al
Comment: Hello Shana, today your swap arrived! ^-^ Thank you very, very much for resending it to me; I love to read your letter! And yeah: It's always so frustrating, when letters are lost on it's way... I hope your hand is better by now; kickboxing is an awesme hobby,but a sour hand can be truly annoying. Also my older sister has seizires, too (since birth) and so I'm grown up with knowing about them.
For now I haven't seen a baseball game in real live, because it's not so common in Germany, but I would like to do so. - I always wonder how you can meer such a small ball with your bat. (Is "bat" truly the right word or is google translate making fun of me? XD)
Have a great day!
Comment: I enjoyed reading what you picked. And hearing why you picked what you did. we had some of the same picks and I liked hearing about the ones you said opposite to me, which were the weather and the frogs. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Never received . But I totally blame Usps. Rating now to clean up my list. No need in sending another. You have an awesome day! Hi today is Wednesday 9/9 and those are some great questions o hope I have a great day
Response: I’m resending. I did send it. I’m very sorry.
Comment: Shana, I so enjoyed reading every bit of your responses for the swap. Thank you so much for asking to do the private swap, I'm so happy you did! Maybe we can do another one sometime (with different prompts, of course!) Have an awesome weekend! 😊
Comment: WOOHOO it is here! First of all, LOVE the Lisa Frank envelope. So fun to receive in the mail! It definitely brought a smile to my face. Secondly, thanks for the washi! They are so fun! Thirdly, the letter!! I will reply soon. THANKS!!
Comment: I finally received the swap that you sent. Thank you so so much for the address labels! That was too kind of you to include after having so many issues trying to get this swap to me. I appreciate you sending with tracking and am so glad that it arrived this time, thanks again!
Response: I’m so glad you got it this time and I’m glad you’re happy with it. TYVM for rating and heart.
Comment: Thanks for the Australia card! I actually rcvd a notecard from an australian today so I believe that is coincidental! So so glad this finally made it to. I am still waiting on 3 that have popped up on informed delivery and have still yet to make it as well.
Comment: Thank you for the great card -- I love the state flag cards. I have never been to Nebraska, but maybe someday. Happy swapping!
PS -- Thank you for the resend -- I will keep an eye out for the other card.
Comment: Merci for the Eiffel Tower postcard! I hope to go to Paris again one day - I want to take my husband but between work, no passports and the current pandemic, I don't think we'll be flying anywhere anytime soon! :) Ah, but it's still lovely to dream! Take care and have a great day! <3
Comment: The wonderful re-send arrived today! Thank you so much for sharing these great samples and the bonus postcards (yay!) =) I really appreciate it. ((Did this rating not go through? Saving it again—weird!))
Comment: Loved the postcard! Oh my gosh - The Thorn Birds! I remember when it came out in the monthly book club in ‘ 77or ‘78 and my Gram , my mum and 2 aunts read it. I started it but didn’t get too far so maybe it’s time to revisit it 😊 Thanks for the other recommendations, too.
Comment: I got your swap to day! Yay! Thank you very much for the resend of great PC's and also for your surprise letter. Which I very much enjoyed reading. It will take sometime though to get back to you. As I said before, I keep having all these doctor appts., due to my PPMS & Autoimmune system problem. But I always write back. Thank you very much for joining my swap Shana!
Comment: Hi Shane,
I want to start out this rating with A BIG THANK YOU for your patience in receiving this rating on this swap. Since my surgery, I have had a difficult time, post-op infection, continued slow healing, and GI issues. I really enjoyed swapping with you, so I APPRECIATE your patience.
The mail in Colorado continues to move slow, both in and out of the state. PLEASE be Patient with my mail as I never know how it will be handled after I turn it over to the Post Office.
Thank you for your beautiful letter you sent me for this swap. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your letter. Your ear surgery sounds like it wasn't a Wonderful Experience, just like many surgeries. I'm sorry to hear that you have lost some of your hearing. My sister, right under me has NO Hearing in one of her ears. She got up one day when she was young and realized she couldn't hear out of one ear. Doctors (ENT) haven't been able to figure out, really, what caused her hearing loss. They finally said after seeing several ENTs over time that it appears to be a nerve loss. She has adapted well. She is an OR Nurse, and she makes sure that all that need to know, know about her hearing loss. She has to be checked about every year or so, wanting to make sure her non-injured ear remains in GREAT condition. I thought for awhile that I was being one of a few that is having problems on Swap-bot. I found that more than I thought were or had trouble on Swap-bot. We aren't alone. Like you, I wasn't going to let others make me stop. I want to Stop when I want to Stop!!
Over the last 8-9 months, I have met a lot of new swappers, new swappers to sending me a swap for the first time. The first experiences have been WONDERFUL! . I look forward to swapping with you in the future. Until then, HAPPY SWAPPING!
Comment: Hi Shana, thanks for the beautiful washi tapes. Unfortunately, the envelope was torn when it arrived. I hv a feeling the birds washi didn't make it. But I love the others though. Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank you for the sweet letter, love the small pages! My children are grown in fact I think they are your age, now whose old? Not you! Lol! I miss those busy summers so many activities and the house full of noise and friends! Unlike you I love winter! We have a small vacation planned but mostly just home. Young people don’t know how much fun it is to get really dirty just playing outside! Enjoy your very busy summer and I pray you are able to work in a small vacation! God bless you and your precious family!
Comment: What an adorable cupcake! You are right, I think it is worth some temporary discomfort in exchange for immunity. You are the second person I know who had bad side effects from the second shot.
Comment: Thank you! Yes, they show many musicals at The Mayflower. :) You did excellent choices, those are places I also enjoy. I would recommend visiting Ocean Village near the docs. Also few old pubs like Red Lion and Duke of Wellington. They have great atmosphere. If you venture a but further you can visit New Forest and see the ponies and a few donkies roaming free. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful spring postcard! I love how everything is slowly starting to turn green again and there are many many dandelions in front of our house. I get a smile on my face from the colours. Thank you so much for your offer to become penpals. Sadly, I have such little time and are struggling already to keep up to date on my current bunch of pals who I have for a great numbers of years already. But I'm flattered! Thank you! Happy swapping <3
Comment: Shana, I love the washi pockets that you created for me, and not just 2 but 3! I would never had known these were out of you comfort zone! I love each one equally and I really love the cute bird library cards. Thank you so very much for the pockets and the darling post cards! Very nice swap! 💖
Comment: What an awesome ATC! So creative. Zippers and zebras! I love it. And thank you for the zebra postcard. I appreciate you following up with me and then resending when the first was lost. I'm glad this one made it because I love it. Have a wonderful day!
Response: Yay!!! I’m so glad it did and that you love it. I wasn’t sure how I was gonna do it but I’m glad it worked and that you love it. TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: Thank you Shana for sharing your answers with me to the bible study and for the extras. I really enjoyed those prayers you sent. They all have truth to them. Thank you for sharing these with me.
Comment: Sorry to hear about your dog passing , it is a sad time . We also had a gerbil , when our children was growing up . We have pet rabbits now ! Lego and sparkles and buttons ! We got them at West Virginia State Fair , a few years back !
Comment: Hi Shana! Thank you for the cool postcards! I will respond to your letter soon. I wonder if you ever got the re-send for my other letter? I wish the USPS wouldn't do that! Take care and be well.
Response: Yes ma’am I sure did. I thought I had sent you a message letting you know I did. TYVM!!! I will respond soon!!
Comment: Thank you for the cute camping pc and sharing your camping stories. I also grew up camping in a tent. It wasn't a good experience so now, I prefer 'camping' in a cabin. :) Growing up in Montana, I remember my first grade teacher telling my class about tornadoes. She looked up to see a classroom of terrified kids, then told us that there weren't tornadoes where we lived. That wasn't necessarily true, but I have never been in one before. I'm sorry that you and your family have experienced them before. Hopefully, you won't experience them again. :) Take care!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard and all of the goodies that you included. I am using the notepad in my purse so that I have something when I need to write something down like a phone number, etc.
Comment: I appreciate baseball except the last time personally played baseball (decades ago), I got hit in the face with a ball. So I'll watch from very far away. Hahaha. I hope the games pick back up soon for you and your boys!
Comment: Thank you for the super cute Dumbo card. The Giraffe and her baby are so cute. We are having typical spring weather also. 80's today and tomorrow evening storms moving in and I can tell they are coming as my hip has been really bad today. The first time in months. I went to pool and did water exercise and it helped a little but not enough.
Comment: Thank you for a wonderful swap, Shana! The Easter print envies are adorable, and the gold flower one is gorgeous. I appreciate the cool used stamps and the "greetings from" postcard, too. I think this is the first NE postcard in my collection. :)
Comment: Thank you for the Disney postcard! Yes it is exciting watching the kids play baseball. My daughter and two boys all played, my oldest son got to play at Cooperstown, that was a lot of fun. Those days are behind me now and I do miss them. Hope y’all have a great season! ❤️
Response: Cooperstown sounds amazing!!!! I’ve never been and hope to one day. TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: Hi there! I got your card but had no idea who it was from (your name's not on it) and wasn't sure if it was for the B&W swap or the monochromatic swap (no swap name either)! :-p I figured it out! (Perks of being the coordinator, eh?) Thanks for sending my way and participating in the swap!
Response: I’m sorry. I had sent a message after I sent them stating I thought I had forgotten. TYVM for not rating down.

Comment: I LOVE Wildfire!! I was younger when it came out and I wanted a horse so bad! That song always made me sad, yet the music itself was awesome! ANd of course who doesn't love some Stevie to get them going in the AM?! Thanks for the recommendations! Happy Swapping.
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed them! TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: Hey Shana! Received your Penguin PC with Musical answers today. Thank you very much for awesome selection songs! I know every single you wrote down and I love them all too! Especially Wildfire by Michael Murphy. I grew up with that song & it's been my #1 favorite since it came out. So, What an awesome list Shana! Say, Do you pen pal? I just got into it again after being away from it for 13 years. Let me know via message. Thank you.
Response: Wildfire is my fave song! TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: I was so happy to see the address labels! You're wonderful! You are more than welcome to send me a letter and be a pal. I do get behind during planting and then garden harvest time, but I eventually catch up!
Response: Yay! I’m so glad you liked them!!! I can’t wait to write! TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: Thank you for your card! We do not celebrate St Valentine's Day at all! In the Czech Republic, we have a special Day of Love on May 1st! There is a tradition of kissing under a cherry tree in blossom :-)
Response: Yay! I’m glad you finally received it!!! TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: Hi Shana,
I apologize if I am slow in rating your swap. It is not my intention to be slow,. I appreciate the 3 notecards you sent me for this swap. I will use the notecards in the future. Until I use them, I will add them to my Notecard Collection.
I think this is our first time swapping with one another. The has been happening a lot to me, swapping with new swappers. I hope we get to swap again in the future. Until then, Happy Swapping.
Mail in and out of Colorado continues to be slow. Please be Patient! Thank You!

Response: I’m so glad you liked it!! TYSVM for the rating and heart
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful fall postcard. Looks like it would be a wonderful walk through the woods. I'm an October baby, too and do enjoy when the leaves are starting to turn. Beautiful colors! Thank you for sharing!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Mary Engelbreit postcard; I love that quote! It's so true! Being pen pals sounds great. I can answer your questions better that way. Feel free to message me, with your address. ~ Z
Comment: Hello Crafty Shana76
I understand how you feel about getting back outdoors to enjoy some fun activities with your family. Last year turned my world upside down and I was forced to stay still. I’m a weekender adventurer and now I feel like a hermit. I’m also sorry to hear your husband isn’t a fan of musicals. My boyfriend isn’t a fan of musicals either or heights. It was a nice break today to find your swap in my email box.
Thank you and have a blessed day :)
Comment: Thanks for the Sci-Fi book letter - like you, I read a Wrinkle in Time as a kid. Or actually, our teacher may have read it aloud to us. I remember loving this book. Have fun on your journey through the other books in the series. And thank you very much for the excellent assortment of paper goodies!
Comment: Aloha and thank you for joining the swap. Got your super crafty envies today and I love the map one the best. Thank you the extra ones - they will definitely get used soon!! I use to live in Bellevue, NE a long, long time ago. On Jefferson Street. I miss my wee house! Stay crafty. xxMuggleMom
Response: Such a small world. We have good friends that used to live on Jefferson too. I’ve lived in Bellevue my entire life. You can’t even fathom how it’s changed. TYVM for rating and heart.
Comment: Hi Shana,
I love the Scarlet Star Bromeliad postcard. I bought the whole box series a long time ago and I probably only have a few postcards left from this series.🥰 I took up planting in January and I'm honestly obsessed, I find it so relaxing. I hope you are doing well, take care!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful washis and lovely note! I adore all the lovely samples you sent. Your note card was very unique as well. Hope you are also safe & healthy! Thank you for the great swap <3
Comment: Woohoo, you did a great job of posting those images. You can post all 3 in one comment if you wish, just add a double line between each one. I love the angel, Ariel and astronaut images, thank you!
Comment: I love fuller house ! I wish it would continue you on ! I tried getting interested in Outer banks , watched a few episodes. Seems like I watched 13 reasons why but not sure , will have ck it out again ! Unsolved mysteries and forensic files, we watch all the time !
Comment: I would be happy to have you as a pen pal. I am addicted to Swapbot now! Anything to do with writing! Andsnail mail! Ican t wait for the postman to come every day

Comment: Yes love Tom Hanks too, The Green Mile and Forrest Gump are my favorites too. Also love the Da Vinci Code and Saving Private Ryan. He is a great actor indeed and so cool that you had a photo taken at the wax museum.
Response: Yes I was so in awe. I just wish he would have been real. TYVM for rating and heart
Comment: Arrived today! Not sure if it's the original or a resend, but a lovely card is here. :) Thanks also for the address labels which I will certainly be able to use. Good luck with your goals and hopes. Best wishes for peace and good health in 2021!
Response: Yay! I’m glad it made it and I’m glad u liked everything! TYVM for rating and heart.
Comment: First, thank you for the beautiful card and goodies. I REALLY loved the bird card, towhees are such cute feathered friends! The washi was an awesome surprise too! I have the perfect PC to use them on! Speaking of post cards, thank you SO MUCH for the bicycle coloring card! I like to color (so relaxing) and, as you probably saw from my profile, I LOVE bikes! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Also, thank you for your medical service...work like you preform is of great service to our nation and to humanity. I'm sorry that you miss your Schwinn, I understand, I miss some of my childhood bikes too. There is a certain red BMX bike that I had when I was a kid that was awesome...I swear it never got a flat tire no matter what heck I put it through. I almost found one like it a few years back, but it found a home with another gentlemen who had the same childhood bike. I'm sorry I missed it, but I'm happy that it went to a loving home. I remember some skinned knees too...they hurt at the time, but I've come to cherish those early memories with age. I let you know about swapping washi...I just might take you up on that...I've got quite the collection too! Best, Rick
Response: Thank you so much for sharing!! I appreciate the rating and heart ❤️
Comment: Thank you for this swap. I am sorry I have to rate a 3. This swap arrived late & I never received any communication indicating so until Jan. 2 that it had been returned to you. Your pattern of 3s leaves a lot To consider.
Response: I sent you a message telling you it got sent back to me. I informed you it was gonna be late. It isn’t my fault.
I received the swap back on January 2 when I notified you. How is the disarray of the PO my fault? A 3 is not fair.
Comment: Thanks for sharing! I hope 2021 Christmas will be bavk to normal as well. Last Christmas was weird but it was still fun. We live in another country then our parents and normally we wdould visit each other but that wasn't possible this time so we sent gifts to each other and unwrapped it during a Skype call. Your Christmas sounded really nice as well! Hope you had fun! :)
Response: That sounds nice also. Thank you for rating and heart. Take care!
Comment: Hi Shana ! Received your card yesterday. Wanted to rate then. But I just plain didn't feel good at all. But thank you very much, for the very pretty card, gift tag, and little cute penguin notes!
Response: I hope you’re feeling better. Always a pleasure swapping with you. TYVM for rating and heart.
Comment: Thank you for your message. Your Christmas sounds a little like mine did. Always better to be on the safe side, even though it sucked. We still managed to make it fun though. Hopefully, in Christmas 2021, we'll get the Christmas we missed out on!
Comment: Thanks for the Olaf card. Just for future reference please make sure to write the swap name and your user name on the pc you send. Thanks. And it’s super cute I had to go buy your stamp and zip to figure out where it came from. Thanks
Response: OMG! I’m so very sorry I thought I had. I always make sure I do that. I’m so very sorry. I’m glad u liked it. Thank you for rating and heart
Comment: Thank you so very much for the lovely card! It is a bright spot in an otherwise rough day due to a nor'easter that left me digging out from almost 14" of snow! And I absolutely love the playing cards! Wow! Thank you for being so generous :) Please stay safe and be well.
Response: OMG! Stay safe yourself! I’m glad you liked everything. Thank you for rating and heart. Merry Christmas 🎁🎄
Comment: Hi Shana! Thank you for the lovely Christmas card and share about your weekend! Sounds like a fun sporty one for you and the family! Thanks also for the stationery, you had me giggling! Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christ and Happy New Year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Merry Christmas 🎁🎄 and Happy New Years to you. Thank you for rating and heart.
Comment: Hi I received your PL today and it is so cute. Thank you for sticking it out with me waiting for it to be delivered (gotta love to PO). I look forward to checking out all the little pockets.
Response: I’m so glad it FINALLY arrived and that you liked it. Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 Thank u for rating and heart.
Comment: oh those are beautiffuly carved pumpkins! Tell your boys GOOD JOB! So sorry life is so different for the kids. Maybe this summer will be different. Our kids here did go out for halloween. Now I am nervous for Thanksgiving! (inside stuff) Stay safe:)
Response: TYSVM!! I will let them know. Happy Thanksgiving 🦃🍁🍽
Comment: Great list. I watch "family ties" ( sacré famille" in french), "family matters" (la vie de famille) and "full house" (la fête a la maison). I love "fresh prince of bel air" ( le prince de bel-air) and the carlton's dance 😂😂😂
Comment: great list. I know "Fuller house", *I finished the series at the end of season 5. As a child, I also watched "Full House" ("la fête à la maison" in french). I like "Dexter", and I quickly started "Ozark"
Comment: Thank you so much for your board! The kids shows are my favorite. I'm not really a horror girl myself. I do like the Geico commercial where the teens hide under the chainsaws. I never saw the movie but my stepmother went as often as she could and she would take the kids. Then it was up to me to sit up with them when they had nightmares. I always wanted her to hide under the chainsaws. LOL! Have a great day!
Response: TYVM for a nice comment!!!! I appreciate the rating and heart!
Comment: Thank you! Beautiful card!
The chemistry we studied for pharmacy is tough, but if I can do it anyone can do it. I would say go for it at any age but the career of pharmacy isn't what it used to be.
Response: Thank you for such an honest comment. Take care!
Comment: Thanks for the cute Halloween card! I love the stickers you sent too - they are kind of old school and I like that. I was the only person in the family who carved a pumpkin this year without one of those stencils. Not talking down on it, I just prefer my toothy grin jack-o-lanterns. =) Happy Halloween!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I always buy postcards during trips and vacations, too - I have to stop myself from buying to many :D I'm a Postcrossing member since 2010. Have a nice day and stay safe!
Response: I’m glad you liked it. TYVM for swapping!!
Comment: I enjoyed your letter very much. I hope your boys have been able to play this season and you've been able to attend the games. You were fortunate to have loving caring grandparents that influenced your life. I hope you've not been ill due to COVID, being a respiratory therapist puts you in a dangerous position right now. You write a good, two-way conversational letter, keep up the good work. The washi tape is great, I love kitties and puppies. Thank you for the postcards, now, I'll be able to join a couple of swaps when things settle down around my house. Stay well and safe, HAPPY SWAPPING
Response: TYVM for rating and heart. I appreciate it.
Comment: I love your custom return sticker! So cute! I need to do one for myself. The card is so cute too, and I love the stickers, especially that they are black and white bc on my profile I say that I love those bold illustrated b/w colors against the pop of orange! Thank you!!!
Response: Yvw! I like to give my partners what they like!!
Comment: Thank you the so sweet pumpkin card & awesomely cute Halloween stickers! I hoe you all get to go to the haunted house. We were to go to friends of ours, for a Halloween party on Halloween night. But got cancelled a couple weeks ago. Because now there's covid virus here & our town won't allow us to leave our homes.
Response: I’m glad you liked the card and goodies. I’m sorry about your party. The virus numbers keep rising here so we aren’t going very far from home.
Comment: I didn't receive this but mail was absolutely insane this summer so I'm giving all my missing swaps a pass, no need to resend. Hopefully USPS will get it's act together before ballots need to be returned!
Response: I did send it!! I sure hope it turns up. I’m so very sorry! Thank you for rating.
Comment: I hate leaving poor ratings, but I contacted her twice, both times she said she'd resend, but I still haven't gotten anything. Will change the rating if it ever arrives.
Edit: I received the card. Thank you!
Response: Thank you for the rating. I’m glad it arrived this time!
Comment: After a few hiccups with delivery, the swap finally arrived and it was fun to read the answers to the questions! I am not a huge stephen king fan, but I did love the movie misery! Thanks for making the effort to make sure this swap reached me! Have a great Halloween!
Response: Yay!!! I’m so glad it finally arrived!!!! Happy Halloween to you!!!!
Comment: 10/16 - received the "lost" resend today; USPS must have found it under the truck seat! Very cute cards & festive treats. Thank you.
9/30 - Said you'd resend with tracking, but still haven't received anything or any tracking. Will update rating if this swap is received.
Response: I’m glad it was found. U will be getting a 2nd one next week. I’m glad u Liked it. TYVM!!!
Comment: EDIT: Sender sent swap on 10/6/20, I have received this swap on 10/8/20. Deadline was 8/26/20. Thank you for the goodies! Loved the unicorns and your letter, thank you! Updated my rating from a 1 to a 5.
EDIT: Did not contact this person because I was already flaked on in another swap.. Deadline for this swap was August 26, 2020, I rated a 1 because I did not receive anything. Now that I have rated a 1, sender is now attempting to send out this swap (October 2020)...
Response: I’m glad you liked everything. TYVM for the rating.
Comment: EDIT: Thank you for the postcard. Deadline was September 14, 2020. Sender sent postcard late on 10/6/20 after I have rated a 1 on 9/30/20. I received postcard on 10/8/20. I have updated my rating from a 1 to a 5. I finally received from all partners for this swap, and I was only missing a postcard from this sender.
Comment: Thank you for resending this with tracking information! Working out and being healthy is so important during COVID. I also got a little unhealthy during this time. I actually just came back from a walk around the neighborhood.
Response: YVW!! And keep it up!!! You’re off to a good start! TYVM for the rating
Comment: When going through the mail today, I started reading the front of the card and getting upset that I couldn't read the writing and that the card had been delivered to the wrong address... hahaha... Then I realized it was the front of the card, it was a Mo Card meant to look vintage, and then everything made sense! (Long day!!) Anyway, when I figured it out, I went for another cup of coffee with a big smile. Thank you!!
Response: LOL!!! It’s all good. We all do that!!! TYVM!
