Ooooh, I love this swap so much!  I received three yesterday.  I think the text is pretty clear on all of them, but if anyone would like it typed out, just let me know.   Smiley

I hope you can figure out what makes this happen and feel better. 

Aw... This is both really cute and really sad.  I'd hug you if I could, anonymous craftster. 

I'm going to do quite a bit of commenting later, but I don't wanna overwhelm anyone with a really long post.   Cheesy

Jesus:  It's sad that in this day and age that you DO get treated differently.

Addicted:  The one secret I have nothing in common with!  I HATE soda and have never drunk more than a sip in all my years!


Knowing which secrets are mine:  I was afraid, too, but now I realize,... I don't care.  It feels good to let it go!

Girl hitting on you:  I seem to have that happen a lot, and my husband the closet perv,... he loves it!

In love with the best friend:  I SO get this!  I was in love with my best friend in high school, and he was dating my OTHER best friend, so  there was NO chance!!


Captain Obvious:  I think my husband is secretly Captain Obvious sometimes!

ET:  I get it, but I love him!!

City to save:  I hope it works for you!  Good luck!


Waiting for a call:  I  understand.  When my husband was deployed and told me he would call at a certain time,... I would freak when he didn't!

Angelina:  I am sure you will make your mark in YOUR own way!


Barbie & Ken:  I did that a time or two, myself!!

Best friend:  There were times when I felt that way about a friend of mine, too!

Shoes:  I don't do that with shoes, but I have other little rituals like that, too!

Fear of dogs:  There is nothing wrong with that.  A fear is a fear and they aren't funny.

Anything happened to her:  I don't know what to say, but I understand.

I want you so bad:  I hope you get who you want!!

$10:  Isn't it weird what things still pull us in?!


Harry Potter:  I don't think you are the only one!!

Vegetarian:  I don't eat much meat but I don't have the willpower to give up what little I do eat of it!

First kisses:  That is a really sweet card.

College:  It wasn't all that for me either!!

273lbs:  Damn right!  I wish I could have that confidence!


The future:  Your future is what you make it, even if takes some failures along the way!

No taste:  I have a family member that tries hard,... but it just doesn't work.  But she isn't a craftster, either!!

Self-discipline:  You and me both!!

The prom:  The prom is overrated and I am still bitter and I graduated a LONG time ago!


A man in uniform:  I can't resist them either,... so I married one!

PAP test:  GET ONE!  I had a bout with pre-cancerous cervical cancer when I was 29 and that PAP saved me!

Negativism:  I totally understand.  I had a boss like that but I couldn't quit,... I was a soldier!

LSAT:  Congrats on finding the best way for you and knowing that wasn't it!

No words:  I can make plenty on my own!!


Someone else's secret:  It was yours, too, if you knew it!

Believing in ghosts:  I think a lot of people feel that way!

Art teacher:  I would have liked that, too, except I can't draw, or paint,... to save my life!

Love is strenth:  Bittersweet, but beautiful in meaning!


People I Know I'd Like:  I feel that way, too, a lot of the time!

Speaking English:  I agree!  I appreciate retaining their culture, and they SHOULD, but it is a practicality matter to speak the language of your adopted country.

Imbeciles:  I second that!!

But I have love:  What a fantastic card.  And you are absolutely right.

Something beautiful:  Sorting it out is definately the hard part!!


Sexually assaulted:  It took 3 years for my dad to believe me when I told him it happened to me.

Celebrities:  It happens sometimes to me, too!


Barbie:  I had the whole Barbie shebang, but never got into them.  But there are other kid things I miss!

I wish it had been me:  This is sad, and I hope you are feeling better now.

Waldo:  I think we all feel like that sometimes.


Cows:  NO fear is irrational, but mine is spiders,... not cows.  Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE cows!!

I want to be me:  That could have been my secret!

Asexual:  I know a lot of people in that category.  I don't think it is as rare as people think.


Reunion:  I went to my 10 year,... and left early.  It wasn't even worth the 2 hours I spent there!

Hating babies:  I don't know what to say other than I understand.  I was terrified that I was going to hate my baby when he was born, since he was from a rape,... but I adore every ounce of his little red-headed person!

Lesson in rejection:  Congrats on the job!

Spaceballs:  Too funny!!

Alcohol:  I have an alcoholic family member and it is AWFUL.  And they don't see it either.  Good luck!

Ruining Thanksgiving:  What a guy!  I am sorry you got treated badly!


High School Musical:  I know the words, but I have kids who watch the DVD 24/7,... really.

HPV:  I hope you are okay and that you will be alright!  Thanks for sharing!

Judging what you eat:  I feel that way, too.

Small secrets:  It doesn't matter how "big" they are.  A secret is important, no matter the size.

Cremation of a pet:  If it works for you, then that is what matters.


Crappy food:  Hear, hear!  Me, too!

Grape juice:  I can be like that with orange juice!!

Biking across America:  Why would they laugh?  Go for it!

Sunset:  I swear I heard romantic music cue in when I read this one!  That is so sweet!

Hating Xmas:  Me, too, but I think it is because it is so commercial now.

Being fat:  I totally get it, but I am trying to get over it!

Knowing what I want to do:  I think everyone feels this way at some point or another.

Embarrassed by the mess:  I had a bout of that myself!  It was daunting to look at, but I finally did it and feel so much better!

In the background:  I FEEL THE SAME WAY!

Sorority secrets:  I never belonged to one, but were they good secrets?!  Smiley

Bacon:  I LOVE the smell of bacon!

The prom:  A depressing memory at best for me!

Paranoid of hate:  The older I get, the less I care!!

Lives animals:  They won't let you down!!


Death:  I never thought of it that way!

Dear Santa:  I LOVE this card.  Good secret, but what a funny way to share it!

The cure:  That is such a sweet sentiment.  I bet you are stronger than you give yourself credit for.


Cheerleader:  Ewww, kinda creepy!!  I don't blame you.

Panic attacks:  I just want to hug you.  I hope you find your way through it.

Happiness:  Sometimes I think I could win an Oscar for my own performances!!


I love my hubby, but the Army doesn't pay enough for my crafty habit!

I got 2 more,...

"If my master's degree wasn't being paid for, I would have dropped out a year ago.  I want to do something with meaning.  This isn't it."
The card is covered with parts of a syllabus.  I really appreciate the meaning behind this card and I hope the sender will find their happiness in what they do!

the front,...

the back,...

"It happened during the school trip in a bar in Italy.  I didn't even know his name.  But I don't regret it!!  But I'll never tell my mom!!"
I am glad you don't regret it!  Those are the things romantic movies are made of!

If I could, I would shrink myself, sink thru your skin to your blood cells. Remove whatever makes you hurt, But I am too weak to be your CURE

Love the Brand New Lyric quote on this one Smiley

I received 4 yesterday:

« Reply #365 on: December 01, 2007 10:00:01 AM »

to the poster with an alcoholic in their life - have you gone to Al-Anon? if not, try it. you don't have to leave your spouse, you don't have to change him, but you can help you and find some comfort!

to the person with depression/hurting themself/etc - please please go back to your dr and tell him/her that your meds are not working. if they don't do anything different find another dr. no one has to feel that way, I know, I've been through it. you must keep working until you find something that works for you. it may take a while, but it will be worth it in the end

finding a dead body - don't know what to say other than I totally love this one!

biking across the US - I have many ambitious goals I will never tell anyone because I don't want them to laugh at me, this one really struck a cord with me. I need to get over this, because if I don't these dreams will never become a reality.

I received three more today!  Once again, all the text looks pretty clear, but if it's not just let me know.   I love this first one-- the picture on the front and what it says seem so incongruous.    

I hope that reading all the other cards helped you realize that you're not alone in your confusion.  

This one made me so sad.  I hope things improve for you.

Here's the front of the third card--

But my favorite part is the back of it: 
  "This is my last postcard of the swap and it has no color, no pictures, nothing but the truth.  Thank you all for a great swap and a good dose of craftster therapy!"

Thank YOU!

Here are the latest ones I received

I hate it when people say anything to be "cool". On the other hand if these people are helping to save the environment to be "cool" then it doesn't bother me, because they are still protecting the environment

I hope you can come to terms with why you never told 21 years ago


Goodbye Tucson! I will miss how everything dried so quickly!

<i>Above and below, it says:  'My mother wanted me to get the HPV vaccine.  She doesn't know I already have Human papillomavirus (HPV).'
In the middle, there's a Gardasil logo with 'TOO LATE' written above it.</i>\

to the person with HPV: it's never too late to get the vaccine!  there are hundreds of different strains of hpv, both low and high risk (low is warts causing, high is cervical cancer causing)... the vaccine protects against 4 major strains... even if you already have one of these, you can protect against the others.  i wish you great luck at your next pap, and remember that so many women are going thru this same thing - and chances are you'll probably clear it.  <3

I just received 4 more!

Funny the first 3 are all relating to marriage:

If you can't read it, the bottom says,
"This is my not so artistic representation of what they actually looked like.  The red one was "the one".
