Comment: Thanks for sharing your Stephen King fan journey. I attend a book release event in Naperville, IL for "Sleeping Beauties". No meet and greet, but it was really cool to attend and hear him talk about his books and writing. I hope you enjoy his newest book - it looks like a good one!
Comment: I loved your pics, your fur babies are so cute! And funny too! Loved Pixie's sexy pic haha, I love it when my kitties make the same pose lol. I also laughed real hard at your dog's pics, especially the one with Cas' haircut hehe. And I'm sorry about Molly, she seemed like a fun pal. Living with pets is the best, so thanks for sharing such cute pics with me, tell them I send my best. Happy summer! :)
Comment: Thank you for the many postcards you included! I think the "snail mail" one is my favorite, haha. Congratulations on surpassing 100 miles!! I was not so successful. =/ Will try again this month. Bummer about the AC at the gym!! Were most of your miles walking? Did you get to enjoy any other activities?
Comment: May the sun shine brightly on your beautiful self! Your envelope arrived today, and bless your giving heart. The seashell and smudge didn't make it, and the pentacle got cracked but it gives it a rather cute bit of character. I just love the book, it's the perfect place for the spells and recipes I've received in swaps from The Green Witches Esoterica monthly swaps. I'm so very grateful to you for your package and for joining my swap. - Blessings -
Comment: Hi Mikki, I wanted to thank you for the great sea creatures postcard that was illustrated (instead of a photo). I really took a liking to it, and happily framed it this evening! All the Best - Diane
Comment: Thanks for the PC ðŸ˜‹ I love reading too and always have several books going at once. The Red Rising trilogy by Pierce Brown is really good. And if you're worried about turning 40, you can always start counting backwards and go with 38 this year. I think I'm going to just stop having birthdays altogether. 35 were plenty. Happy early birthday, Nathan
Comment: Squeee! I LOVE this postcard! So very Firefly-y and orange. :) I made a couple Jayne hats years ago and never ended up with one for myself.... It was fun and pretty easy though. Hope you love yours!
Comment: Thank you for the great Barrymore quote (one I'd never heard!) and vintage-style (I miss old-fashioned photo albums and my instant and 110mm cameras, heheh) card, Mikki :) Hope you have a good week!
Response: Thank you for the rating! Glad you like it!
Comment: Ha! Great card! I love your enthusiasm. I loved the movie too - saw it twice opening weekend. I'd like to go back again soon. I loved Yorktown - I thought that was a very cool concept and with the enterprise in the river thingy. Way cool! I think that's one of my favorite parts of ST is the ships. Thanks again for the card and participating in the swap! Yay!
Comment: Thank you for the cool illustration of the sword-swallowing magician, vintage postage (the birthday cake booklet is a favorite :), and great Walter Lord quote, Mikki! Hope you're having a good weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the great postcard and for hosting this swap, Mikki! I agree, too many Star Trek luminaries are leaving us. I also enjoyed Mr. Yelchin (may he rest in peace) in Only Lovers Left Alive. I look forward to the TOS stamps being released later this year. Hope you are having a good week!
Comment: Oh my goodness, Mikki! If I could give you five hearts, I would! I adore the plasticized holographic type card I received form you! THANK YOU so much! :D Thank you also for participating in my swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Alabama map card (I didn't have that one -- yay!). Montgomery is the only city in Alabama that I've stayed overnight in; and I only spent one night, but I enjoyed my visit. :-)
Comment: Two in a row friend! Same cards, but I can always use one as an ATC! Hope that doesnt offend you. I usually save my cards from the current season as decorations and then the next year, cut them up and use them as parts of ATC or postcards. Happy Swapping!
Response: Sorry about that. I was trying to make them different ones but some I filled out ahead of time. And no, it didn't offend me!!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome ATC! It'll look fantastic in my collection book :) I'll be picking this swap up where benevolentghost left off so if you'd like to continue the series feel free to join!
Comment: Aha, found them! And I definitely was not disappointed. I love the way you used gold to sort of invoke the divine nature of both cards. I am very happy to add these to my collection, thank you! Also heads up, keep an eye out because I think one of my friends might be continuing the occult series if you still want to participate. If you are still interested, let me know and I'll make sure you get there
Comment: My pocket letter just arrived today! Thank you so much! I adore the little mini Besom and the pendulum both so much :) It was such a wonderful surprise since I was flaked on my first one and havent gotten to experience receiving one yet. I really enjoyed looking at each little pocket. Thank you so much!
Comment: I LOVE it and am completely inspired and spoiled! You sent so many wonderful things that I've wanted and the energy of the pictures on the front... The first page in my BOS! Thank you and sorry for the late rate. A MILLION hearts;)
Comment: Thanks for the Alabama multiview, Mikki. Very interesting... I like the picture of the Yellowhammer, looks much like the Northern Flicker that nests somewhere in our neighbourhood. I rarely see the bird, but I hear him singing every day.
Comment: Thanks for the stamps. Please put them in a small bag or something next time. A lot of stamps had (water) damage. Because you've send so many I still had around 50 good ones, but al lot of double stamps :( edit april 2... A heart for the resent. Thank you!
Comment: Thanx for joining my swap. I too wished more people had joined. I guess it's just that time of year. I enjoyed your board. I have a ruger 38 special with a laser & also one of those Kitchenaid mixers. I see you like Star Trek. Do you enjoy the newer movies as much as the series? I do.
Happy New Year!
Response: Yes I do love the new ST movies. Not many ppl do though.
Comment: Hello Mikki! Thank you for the cute Santa Claus Christmas card & lovely Christmas stickers! Greetings to you in Alabama, from a cooler FL! Neighborhood at bottom of hill, from my apt blding, is all alight with Christmas lights. Happy Holidays!
Comment: Hi Mikki, Thanks for sending the card of the red cardinal, simply gorgeous! I love the clear stickers I haven't found any like these here.
I hope you have a season full of times that are merry and bright!
Comment: Thanks so much for very cool Freddy PC! It was so well done and I loved the blood! Thanks for hosting such a fun swap! I have been watching the film for the past few days and I just can't think about it quite the same after working on my swap. Happy Fall and keep up the awesome,Mikki!
Response: Thanks for the rating! I'm glad you like it!
Comment: Thank you so much! I love my new altar cloth, it's absolutely gorgeous. It's my favorite colors too (you must have peeked at my profile! ). I can't wait to redecorate my altar! And your introductory letter was lovely, as well. :) I was having an awful day, but now I can't stop smiling! Thank you, Mikki!
Comment: I loved the photos you sent me. And thank you for the extra info on the back of the photos. They had a starnge smell of vinegar? Is that how all photos smell over there haha? First me and my hubby thought you'd developed them yourself, but when we looked at the back we saw that wasn't the case. Anyhow Thank you again :)
Response: Lol honestly not sure why they smelled! I used a one hour service to get them developed, so maybe that's why. Whatever chemicals they use. But I'm glad you liked them. I visited that cemetery at least once a month, sometimes more!
Comment: I LOVE what I've opened so far and I'm sure the rest will be brilliant too. :) Thank you so much!!!
Everything was great and beautiful and useful - you've made my 21 Days to Yule! :D Thank you very much!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package of goodies! I feel so spoiled by the lovely candles and incense and everything! the delicate pumpkin is going right on my altar right now :) Thank you!
Comment: I just love this postcard, thank you so much it's so awesome!! Definitely one for my wall :) Yes I love fall too it's just the best time of year, an excuse to eat loads of sweets and watch scary movies I wish it was every month lol Hope you have an amazing Halloween/fall :) xxxxxxxx
Comment: Thank you so much for the vintage creepy Web of Mystery comic PC! I have this very same PC from a different series - isn't that strange? We both have awesome taste, apparently. My boyfriend and I are both anxiously awaiting October 1st so we can go crazy with Halloween decorating!
Comment: I love your board. Ten is my Doctor so worked for me ;) His regen will make you cry for sure, but they gave him a good send off really.
Response: you're the 2nd person to tell me that. My oldest saw it and told me last weekend that he cried like a baby. I am so not looking forward to it!! I watched the final episode of Sherlock season 2 and the episode where 10 lost Rose on one night. BIG mistake!
Comment: Interesting email! :) Sounds like you have quite the postcard and stamp collection! I'm a newbie to collecting so I'm sure mine's not that impressive!! xD Thank you lots! :) Blessings to you and have a great summer!! xx
Comment: Thank you so much for the Alabama postcard! I have received it yesterday, May 20, and was a delight to have it.
Thank you for approaching me and suggesting this swap! I hope mine will reach soon, and I hope that you'll have a heart filled with joy :))
Typing with laughter ^^
Comment: Thank you for sending a US state card. It gives so much information. Beside, I see Alabamaq is the cotton state. Which makes it even more interesting for me, because I want to know everything about textile.
Comment: Thanks for the great swap Mikki. I loved the wand, very interesting how you made it and I loved all the charms and the very cute watering can. I hope your Ostara was a good as mine. The Bundle was beautifully made. Blessings.
Comment: I realllllly love the victorian with the teal roof! Seems like you ike the teals/blues. We both picked the book shelf built into the door! I imagine your home being big, open/airy, brightly colored, and with lots of books! Oh, and 5 kitchens of course! lol Thank you so much for sharing with me!
Response: I'm a Pisces and seem to be attracted to water colors!! I didn't even realize it! Blue also helps calm me down!
Comment: THANK YOU! All the iteams were incredible--and great to see something from each of my fandoms! I love the charm bracelet and Hufflepuff hat! You're so talented :-) And I'm wearing the amulet necklace right now at work *G* I've been wanting one for the longest time! Thanks for making me such a happy fangirl! I don't have enough exclamation marks to capture how awesome this was!
Comment: Thanks for sharing! I have watched some of the episodes of older Star Treks with my friend and I actually did like it, I should just make myself to watch some more. :) Of Supernatural I've only seen a few episodes from here and there.
Response: thanks for the rating. Supernatural is really awesome. We've been watching it for months now on Netflix.
Comment: Hello Mikki,
Thank you for your wonderful ATC for creating this ATC for this swap. Abraham was a great choice to start off this Christian A-Z Series. I look forward to swapping with you more during this swap.
Comment: Oh My Goodness. Thank you so much for the stamps. They arrived today. Thank you again for mailing them so quickly. Will have to invest some time going through all of them. What a find and thank you so very much for passing them on to trade. Have a great week and happy swapping. Thanks again.
Response: Thanks for the rating! I'm glad you like them! I hope you have fun going through them all!!
Comment: I enjoyed reading your journal :-) congrats on your 18yr old graduating, thats a big step!! And I have to say after reading it I feel like I should put some running shoes on and run none stop lol
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed reading it! It was a fun journal to do even though sometimes, it was hard!
Comment: Wow, Mikki. I cannot tell you how much I loved the tote that you sent to me. The wand is absolutely beautiful, and I even loved the tote that you sent everything in :) I loved the Spell candles and all of the Sparkly Glitter! Thank you so so much. I would give you way more than one heart if I could.
Comment: Hi Mikki. Thanks for the letter. I couldn't imagine having a police officer husband. I'm sure that's got to be both stressful and prideful :) Is prideful even a word lmao! Scary. I love the story of your paganism and love how you have just went along the path which you were lead down. Anywho, I appreciate the letter. I'm sure writing it was not on your list of items that you wanted to do with all the issues going on. I just wanted to say that I wish you many bright and beautiful blessings along your journey and again appreciate the letter! Hugs!!
Response: Yes, having my hubby as police officer is stressful. But it's doubly stressful because so is my brother!!
Comment: I love the vintage image of the Gibson Girl holding the flag and the shape of the house is uniquely perfect. I love the words and the stars and the snippets of red, white and blue ribbon and rosettes. This is altogether a perfect July house and altogether perfectly me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
Response: No, thank you so much!! I'm glad you like it!!!
Comment: You are a Goddess!! and a bitchin witch... thank you so much for the package and all the goddess representations.... My animal totem is a panther or cougar..... I love the medicine bag...thank you....
Response: you are very welcome!! I'm glad you like it all!!! And thanks for the bitchin witch comment too!!! I really do like it!!!
Comment: I know that I've said this many times before, but I just can't thank you enough for fetching that Frosty the Snowman cocoa set for me. In all honesty, I thought I was never going to get a hold of it. But, thanks to you, it's nice to know that I've thought wrongly this entire time.
The mug and spoon are ten times more adorable in person. And, thanks to the Community Coffee you've added to my package, I've already tried it out. Speaking of which, it's been so long since I've had Community Coffee that so many memories immediately filled my mind with the first sip I took. I could never thank you enough for your kindness. You're such a sweetie!
Response: You are very welcome! I'm glad to have made you so happy and to bring back the memories!
Comment: Thank you! â™¥ What a wonderful package! I love everything: The elements are great, the soap smells so nice and the butterfly Goddess rosary is awesome! The little vial of citrine chips is fantastic..I LOVE citrine. And I also love essential oils. I REALLY appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity. (Thank you for the coins, too.) :-)
Response: You are very welcome! I'm glad you like it all so much!! This one kinda had me worried!!
Comment: Mikki, you sent too much. I love it all but you way over did it. And it was a private sway at my request! I feel guilty...but also super stoked! These mini anatomy gift tags are way more awesome in person! Thank you thank you thank you!
Response: You are very welcome!! Don't feel guilty!!
Comment: WOW!!! What a fantastic Halloween goodie box!! Everyone at home gathered around to oooo and aaaaah over the lovelies you sent me. And thanks so much for the atc goodies! You are the best kind of swapper. I would LOVE to swap again sometime. A million hearts for you!! Thanks so much ^.^
Comment: I'm so excited to get this book! My girlfriend already has asked me to make Cthulu for her son for Yule! :) Thank you for the beautiful dreamcatcher too. I have it right above my side of the bed. blessings, Gypsy
Comment: Hello Mikki,
I received your "El Gorrito" Loteria ATC on August 11th. I like the picture you chose to represent "el gorrito." The number looked like you used stencils which made them look great. I will add your ATC to my ever-growing and ever-changing collection. I continue to meet new swappers that I have not swapped with before and that it is exciting. Hope we can have further opportunities to swap with one another. Happy Swapping until we meet again.
Comment: Hello Mikki,
I received your "La Luna" Loteria ATC on August 11th. I like the picture you chose to represent "la luna." The number looked like you used stencils which made them look great. I will add your ATC to my ever-growing and ever-changing collection. I continue to meet new swappers that I have not swapped with before and that it is exciting. Hope we can have further opportunities to swap wwith one another. Happy Swapping until we meet again.
Comment: Oh My Goodness girl!!!!!!!! You went above and beyond on this swap! But I love all that you sent! I felt like a little kid at christmas! lol I wish I could give you so much more than one heart! Thank You so so so much!!
Response: You are so very welcome!! I'm just glad you like it all!!!
Comment: I really like the ATC. However, the swap stated "The only rule is that you include the number 54 at the top left and the SPANISH word LA RANA on the bottom" You had the 54 at the booton and LaRan at the top.
Response: Thanks for the rating! Sorry about messing that up.
Comment: Thank you so much for this magazine! I hope you like everything I sent in exchange for it. I absolutely LOVE these magazines and you have helped inspire so many projects by willing to share this issue!
Comment: Thank you Mikki for the Wonderful Christmas card. It was so nice to have gotten it. I like all the writting around Joseph and Mary and our Savior. Great Card. Wishing you a New year with laughter and much joy.
Comment: You did a really good job on this notebook! It never occurred to me to paint the cover...ever! Great idea! Those butterflies & dragonflies are really neat (and REALLY stuck on there! Gorilla glued?) I love the book! I will enjoy using it-probably for Bible study notes since it has my favorite man on the front of it (Jesus!) Thanks!
Response: I actually used gesso on the cover then painted it!! Didn't know if the marble would show through or not! And nope, no Gorilla glue!! The only glue is the sequins! I am so glad you like it!!
Comment: The second card has arrived safely - thanks! I wonder where the other card ended up. I guess I should have expected a Vincent Price quote. :-) [Edit - you are right of course, it is the first one, I'll let you know when the re-send arrives.]
Response: that was actually the first card! I was waiting to hear back from you before I resent!!! It didn't arrive postage due did it? If so, let me know.
Comment: I don't know how you can live in a haunted house. I think I would scare myself to death. And it's always weird for me to hear that people are afraid of clowns. I adore clowns. I used to collect them as a kid. Anyways, I really liked your answers. Thanks for sharing. ^v^
Response: I'm used to it now! Oh and I blame the movie "It" for the clown thing!!
Comment: cajunlady, thanks so much for all the great initial stuff! thanks for sending extras! i especially LOVED the cupcake socks, the stickers, and the tea! and how did you know one of my favorite candies?! it was fun unwrapping everything, too. thanks again for such a great package! :), sschlegel
Comment: colorful & useful assortment :) thank you! lemme know if you want to do another private swap sometime when you clean out the 'junk drawer' of your collection :) I'll search for something equally worthy:) I twitch to begin creating stuff with them
Response: Thanks for the rating!! I have a ton of stamps, so whenever you're ready!!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful item you purchased me! That is a favorite shop of mine, and the seller was nice enough to enclose a written note! Please do leave her positive feedback. Thanks for the swap!
Response: I'm glad you got it so fast!!! I will definitely give her a positive! She was very helpful!!
Comment: Hello Mikki!
Thanks a lot for your postcard which I received this week. I was really surprised as I received the same card a couple of months ago ;-) I like it though!
Have a great weekend!
Response: You're welcome!! Did I send the first one?
Comment: Mikki...WOW...I got your package today and can I just say that I'm floored!! That thing was so packed full of awesomeness I could barely get it all out, let alone back in! LOL...You really made my day and thank you so much for all the cool stuff! The little bat stuffie made me smile! The burts bees, the roll on perfume, I could go on and on! You, lady, are one amazing swapper!!!
Response: I'm really glad that you liked it! I was kinda scared in the decorated part of it. I hope I did it right! And thank you for the kind words!!
Comment: Wowzer!!! What a fantastic package. You sure did a good job of picking things I love. The magazines....yum they will be so much fun to look at over and over. Maybe I can try making something from one of them. The candy treats are great. The fabric, amazing. The little box full of buttons and lace and a little fairy. The Hello Kitty with the the twirling skirt. The memo pad and letter set. You really did an amazing job. Thanks for making this such a wonderful swap!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed everything! It was a fun swap!!!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome package, Mikki! I feel like a bit of a dork, but I love the rock. LOVE it. Held it for hours after I opened it.
Response: eh..don't feel like a dork! i included it because I remember your profile saying you like things like it. And when I pulled it out of my collection, I rubbed and and told myself you'd probably like it!!
Comment: My husband opened the envelope and would not give me my beads until I "showed him"...if you get my drift. Awesome package! FANTASTIC chocolate....you read my profile and tailored it to me. Thanks!
Response: ~lol~ I didn't even think of that!!! Showed him!! ~lol~ I'm glad you enjoyed it all, especially the chocolate!!!
Comment: Great list of books! Just up my alley! Yay Anne Rice and J.K. Rowling! I will definitely check out your list more thoroughly soon!
I gave you a heart because many, many look interesting for me to check out.
Comment: thanks, Mikki, this was a very nice swap, I especially will enjoy the candles and paper products. but I love the kitchen towls and ornaments (they went right on the tree. Seasons greeting to you and yours.
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed it all!
Comment: lol, i thought at first the postcard was from new orleans ;) considering the fun and craziness of that place, the picture on your postcard, and your screename LOL hope all is well with you and thanks again!
Comment: Thanks for your interesting letter. You seem to be "reachable" by immaterial beings or whatever they are; but you also seem to be able to tell them to go away effectively. This is an fascinating situation that I haven't read about before. Thanks for telling your expriences.
Comment: Mikki thank you so much for the knitting needles, yarn and the awesome yummy teas...gonna be hard to keep the hubby away from those...and I was totally out of black yarn :D Many hearts to you!
Response: Thanks for the rating! Man that got there quick! I'm glad you like it all!
Comment: I received your [third] lovely package today. Finally I got it! I loved all, especially the old fashioned Alice cards, they're really pretty ones. I tasted the enchantmints already. I'm feeling smaller now. Thank you very much!
Response: I am so glad you finally got it. I was getting kinda worried there. Thank you so much for being so patient and understanding. And thank you for the rating and heart!
