Comment: Congrats on getting to go to England a second time! I got to go once in 2010, and I would love to go back! I hope you have a ton of fun. Thank you so much for the journal cards! I was just looking up youtube videos yesterday on journals cards, and voila! You sent me some :)
Comment: Cute notecard...I love that the envelope was colored on the inside and plain white on the outside...It's like a nice little surprise inside LOL....also thanks for the cute mini card and envie! .... hope whatever you chose to do that you had a good and safe time...
Comment: Hi Christy ! Once again, I was teamed up with you, hee! And, once again, you sent another awesome book. All the books you had sent me, are all read and passed on. I'm reading a witchy book right now and not long to go on it and will be reading L.A. Candy next. It looks so darn good and can't wait !
Merry Christmas Christy !
Comment: Dear Christy,
Drawing with marker-like pens creates a great effect that I didn't realize your drew the card at first glance! Thank you so much for your postcard :-) I went to some Thanksgiving events held at school last week. And for the break this week, I traveled to Chicago and Milwaukee. It was a great trip and I enjoyed it a lot! Happy Hoidays!
Comment: Hi Christy! Thank you for your great letter and the fun kawaii goodies. I like everything, but the alpaca page markers make me giddy. :) I'm so glad this swap is back -- it's one of my very favorites! Thank you for hosting it!!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful notecard and the extra card you included! Happy belated birthday to you! I always extend the celebration to be the entire 30 days surrounding my actual birthday. That way I can have several small more leisurely parties instead of one huge one where I don't get to even talk to everyone. It works out pretty well, except for my food plan going to pieces. LOL!!
Comment: Thank you for the warm autumn greetings, adorable bat and moth stickers, and for sharing your Windy City weather! It's finally cool enough to wear sweaters here; I will take all the fall-ish weather I can get ^_^ Hope the temperatures even out near you!
Comment: what a nice view of Kentucky ...
i would be up for checking out their cities,
but grateful for the natural areas
that continue to balance out & surround
the urban amenities!
have a fun fall season ~
Comment: Thank you for the flower note card and the extra hooray card. I will use it in the future. October is great so far. I have already decorated my house and my cubicle at work. I just found a witch at an antique store I had to have. The decorating doesn't stop for me until the 31st!
Response: yw! :) keep going on that decorating! Sounds like you are in the spirit!
Comment: My good luck to be partnered with you again! It's it a new job that you're talking about? I feel the same way when I'm cast in a new show. Community theaters are **very** (underline, bold, exclamation point, highlighted) clique-y. Everyone else seems to know everything about each other, and I'm the outsider. I love the card! Really my style. Where do you get the cute notecards you include with?
Response: Yep - a new job. It's been hard to try to warm up to some people, as hard as I try the effort isn't reciprocated! Cannot stand cliques!
I get a LOT of my notecards from Michaels - I love to raid the dollar deal bins for stationery! :)
Comment: Hi Christy! Received the book swap today & thank you so much! Why on earth did you send me 2 books for? You didn't have to do that dear! But thank you from the bottom of my heart! I can't wait to read them now! But made me feel guilty. Since I only sent one book. Thank you again.
Response: yw! :) It was my pleasure to send two! I have so many I want to share! :)
Comment: Cute notecard and thank you for the extra one. Of course we all want to be the best version of our selves. Sometimes that is hard, but as long as you have the motivation, you are right the sky is the limit. :-)
Comment: Belated thank you for the colorful view of Las Vegas -- hope you are having (had?) fun on your trip :) -- cute skateboarding bear sticker, and for the reminder to cull and re-organize my own stationery collection ^_^;;
Comment: Belated thank you for this striking shot of WWII-era soldiers, funny emoji stickers, and for your speedy spring wishes -- I am grateful that my allergies have almost subsided (usually they're gone by now :p I am looking forward to getting out to the park for a few runs each week, but I'm excited to start attending Zumba again as a student for the first time in almost 2 years :O) Happy almost-weekend!
Comment: Hello Christy,
What a beauty!!! You did a marvelous job coloring this postcard. I love the colors you use on this postcard. This will be a great asset to my Colored Postcard Collection.
Comment: What a lovely Paris-themed notecard! I agree with your list wholeheartedly! It's hard to watch the news or even go on Facebook with everything hateful happening these days! Thanks for hosting such a thoughtful swap! And thank you for the nice extra notecard you sent!
Comment: Thank you so much! Air conditioning is my friend. We ate dinner this evening at a new Church's chicken and it was soooo cold in there I thought I was turning into an ice cube. Now that's the air conditioner to have.
Comment: Thank you for the whimsical big top performer doll card -- apropos after my sister and I watched Big Fish for the first time last night :) -- and adorable tabby sticker, Christy! Good luck with your garage sale! :)
Comment: Hello Christy,
Thank you for the beautifully colored postcard you sent me for this swap. I love the colors you used to color this postcard. I will add this to my other colored postcards I have gotten through previous swap.
Comment: Cool tile! Thank you for hosting this series as well as the atc version. I love to Zentangle but find that I don't make time for it much lately so these swap series have got me back into it and I am having a lot of fun with them.
Response: thank you!!! I am right there with you! This kind of forces me to get that creative time in :)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome "B"! :) I've been thinking about adding color, too, since I usually just do B&W. Seeing how great it looks on your ATC, I definitely think I'm going to try it on the next one.
Comment: I am so excited to get one of these women in science cards already! I have this box in my cart on Amazon, but I just can't justify more postcards yet. From where I'm sitting I can see my PC shelf with 22 boxes, 13 folio books, and several large stacks of loose cards. It's a lot... too many to get more... okay, I have 3 boxes on order too... but those were 75% off! I don't have a problem.... :)
Response: I agree that you can NEVER have too many postcard sets... I think we may have snagged the same sale - I got Animal Box for 5$ so I bought TWO sets of that one as well as Marimeko postcards... A deal hard to pass up! :)
Comment: Hi Christy - Thank you very much for the sweet Easter Card and the notecard, memo sheets and sticky notes. I appreciate and love everything. ps: first time I've seen that postage stamp - it's gorgeous!
Response: yw ^^ I am so in love with those stamps! I need to get more - perfect for spring!
Comment: Thanks for your letter, and love these kawaii swaps by the way. And that roses are red joke, then that comment you made on it - surely tickled my throat.
P.S. Checked out your YT channel, super cool- and I really want to try that crate!
Response: yw :) and thanks! Japancrate was really fun, but now they have DokiDoki, which is ALL KAWAII!
Comment: Hi Christy! Thank you so much for your wonderful letter and the goodies. It's so funny you mentioned wanting to learn Python because in my letter to my partner, I told her that I wanted to learn Angular. That's awesome!
Response: yw :) how neat! Just looked it up and now I want to learn that too..! :P
Comment: Hello Christy,
Thank you for the beautiful postcard you created for me for this swap. I like your combination of colors you used on the birds and on the flowers. I will add it to my Postcard Collection.
Comment: Thanks! Weird, I didn't think of this question as about a person too. My inspiration doesn't come from people either. I agree, I hate celebrity glorification, especially ones that are famous for being famous.
Response: Right? So many great people to look up to, but these celebrities these days get instant glorification for the stupidest reasons.
Comment: Thank you! Im totally looking into this line. Im always looking for vegan products. Im getting sick of companies one day testing and next day not. Testing is the bottom line for me. Im thinking vegan ..just thinking vegan products would never be tested but never say never, eh?
Response: I hear you on that one! You never really know these days.. But if you do consider, get that coconut toner lol!
Comment: I love cinnabons too! I just had to force myself to walk back the cinnabon place in the mall at the food court last week. The sad thing is I had just picked up some fully loaded french fries. :( They were good, hehe!
Comment: Thanks for hosting this swap-I always like to get cards on holidays. thanks for sending me one-nice-and thanks for the extras. The note card and envelope was just the thing I needed when I was working on my St Patrick's Day flip book! The coloring postcard looks like fun! Thanks for sharing and Happy St Patty's Day to you too!
Comment: Thanks for the notecard and extra feather notecard! Your stash sounds like mine...although I can't say mine's that extensive. I have an old 70's suitcase full of my stationary and cards. 😄 Happy swapping!
Comment: Belated thank you for the delectable assortment of chard, eggplant, and fiddleheads -- that last one reminds me of the Witch's Rap from Into the Woods, although the lyric there is "fiddleferns and lettuce" :) Hope you are staying warm! The weather's been in the mid-50s, which I like, but my cats still don't. Happy almost-weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard. It is really cool. I have not seen that postcard book before. I will be on the look out for it. I love the tiger. Thanks for hosting these great swaps. It gives me something to do with alll the coloring I do at work. LOL
Response: yw! happy to be using it finally lol :) I'll be hosting them probably forever haha - or until I run out of PCs to color :D
Comment: Thanks so much for the Strawberry, Kiwi and Spinach salad recipe 🥗 ..... Now I'm not going to lie I don't like fruit in my salad... 😧"Say What" , but my mother and sister would love this recipe.❤
Response: You are very welcome :) I tend not to put fruit in my salad either XD but after trying strawberries I must say it's a game-changer!
Comment: This was a super cute swap idea. You sent me some wacky fun stuff. I think the centipede is hilarious. I saw the hair tie lollipops when I was shopping and thought they were cute. Thank you it was all fun madness, that I plan to enjoy.
Response: Glad you liked everything I sent along! I plan to host another in the near future. :)
Response: This was a "5" rating a few days ago... If you didn't receive a card why not just contact me? I don't mind resending. Just saw that you did in fact PM. Just logged in today. Sending another card out 1/14/17.
UPDATE: 1/23/17 She received the card I resent. Thank you for re-rating :)
Comment: Thank you for the great postcard. I need to find a set that is easier to color. Mine are all complex. I loved the quote at the bottom, " To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist." Oscar Wilde
Response: yw :) Yeah, I found I have many sets that just take forever to color - not that I mind, but these are a bit simpler which is nice. Glad you liked that quote too! ^^
Comment: Happy New Year Greetings from Illinois,
Sorry for the late rating. I was gone from home 12/20/16 and had my mail held to be delivered 12/31/16. It was just delivered today, 1/4/17!!
So here I am with 30 swaps to rate. It's a good day.
Thank you for being my partner AND for all the extras. What a unique dress notecard. Love it!
p.s. thank you for hosting such a neat swap!
Response: Thanks for the rate! 😸 it's no problem :) and always happy to host!
Comment: Hi Christy! Loved your pc - may I ask what markers you used? I am finding I am not very good at this coloring gig but I am enjoying it, so... LOL! It got up to 40 yesterday and felt wonderful! LOL! I am so not ready for the deep freeze cold - sigh! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thanks for the rate! 😸 I used a brand from Michael's called "Craft Smart" or something like that. It's a decent set of markers for less than 10 bucks if you use a coupon!
Comment: Belated (I guess the card took the really scenic route, lol? the postmark is from October, but I just got it the other day) thank you for the charming drawing of Lombard Street -- it made me remember playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 as a kid with my brother :) I used to enjoy playing as Elissa Steamer. Hope you are having a good week!
Comment: Thanks for the happy little notecard & for the santa paper! So cute! The book you told me about sounds like it is very good! I am going to see if our library can get it for me. Thanks! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the vivid, hilarious but true "holy trinity" card (I also love the artist's handwriting :D), adorable acorn and pumpkin stickers, and happy wishes, Christy, and thank you for so many rounds of this fun swap ♥
Comment: I'm so very sorry I was cleaning and moving things around for the Christmas tree and I found your cards I'm so very sorry for the late rating. Yellow stone is very beautiful if you could ever go I would and the log cabin sounds great wish I could do the same thing. Thanks again and I very sorry.
Comment: Thank you for the magical view of the Intracoastal Waterway -- I smiled to see that Albert Gallatin, who has ties to Alexander Hamilton and figures in Ron Chernow's biography of Haimlton, was responsible for its inception :) I also love the reminder of a quote (something I thought about this week) and adorable pumpkin sticker. Hope you and your family had a good Thanksgiving <3
Comment: I was so pleased to get your coloring PC because I wanted something to compare mine with. I use colored pencils and I think I've got a way to go to compare to you. Excellent work. Thank you so much, I loved it.
Comment: Thank you for the super-chic Blythe doll card (I'm liking the high-waisted, patterned A-line maxi skirt with a sold top ;) and sparkly Halloween stickers and greetings! Are you dressing up as anyone/thing this year? The weather and costumes were my favorite part of Halloween as a kid! <3
Comment: Thanks for the notecard and stickers 😋 There are so many little things to appreciate like friends and hard cider and the weather finally staying under 90 for the first time in a billion years. And it's hard to beat a comfy bed and a good book 📚. Have a great day, Nathan
Comment: Thank you for the majestic pronghorn antelope card (I know that his Animagus was a deer, but of course, I thought of James Potter, heheh) and cheery Halloween stickres, Christy :) Hope you had a good camping trip and that the weather continues to be crisp <3 I am in a better mood today because it's markedly less humid and cooler *dances*
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous card :) I recall reading an article about the prismatic and other springs in Yellowstone being damaged by people throwing coins and other foreign objects into the springs, which caused the bacteria that gives the pools their vibrant colors to die off. Hopefully awareness of this sad fact will eventually deter people from throwing stuff in and it can return to it's former beauty one day :)
Response: yw :) It is a sad reality... Perhaps one day changes will be made :/
Comment: I love this card - so cute! I love pumpkin spice too - they had the best pumpkin spice hand soap at bath and body works last year and I hope they will have something similar this year too. Fun extra card too - thanks.
Comment: Belated thank you for the Prank University card (I have never seen that book/boxed set!), adorable glittery jack o'lantern sticker (I have been champing at the bit to break out my "October"/Halloween stickers and washi), and encouraging quote, Christy! Happy Autumn <3 I can't wait to go running in cooler weather ;_;
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty postcard and the interesting vocabulary words. I love learning and using new words. My sincerest apologies about how long it's taken me to get my ratings caught up. I look forward to seeing you around the swaps. Have a great day!
Comment: Love this PC Christy! My son just found, at a thrift store, around 100 old fashioned fruit crate labels....he gave me some and I want to have them framed...they are awesome!! Best part is they were sold by weight, they are vintage and he paid about $2 for all of them!!!
Comment: Loved the artwork on the postcard you sent me Christy as well as, the questions that Johnny Depp has pondered and found the answers to! Isnt it true that everything thrives in LOVE? YES and saying YES more often too! Have a great fall and many blessings to you!
Response: woo! Love is so important, especially right now. Sending the love! Take care ^^
Comment: Oh my! "Uglydoll" is adorable, I've never heard of them before you mentioned it with the postcard. Haha... My wallet flutters out moths when I buy stickers, kawaii paper, stamps, and anything stationery related. I'm so poor thanks to that! lol <3
Comment: Thank you for the rooster card. When we went camping if it rained I would either read or in later years work on plastic canvas projects. As long as there was no lightening the guys would continue fishing.
Comment: Hi Christy, thank you for your recipe Green tea Frapuccino! I love Frapuccino's on hot summer days. I will try this recipe soon 😀 because we still have nice summer days in the Netherlands! Have a nice day!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome pinup PC 😍😋 I think this may be one of favorite pinups I have ever seen. All the details are great, the colors, the pose, the little 45 player, it's amazing. She looks comfortable and relaxed and very sexy because of it. I assume some people could be offended by it but what a bunch of weirdos. Have an awesome day, Nathan 💙
Response: Glad you liked the pinup! Love sending those out, but always cautious as to whom I am sending! Take care :)
Comment: Thank you for the stunning view of North Shore Beach and Yacht Club and great Bukowski quote, Christy! I felt like I was in an episode of Mad Men, and the club's façade reminded me of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou :)
Response: yw! I have been really into Bukowski lately :)
Comment: Thanks for the colored frog postcard! I love the color scheme! I'm still addicted to coloring. I found 3 postcard coloring books at Barnes and Noble the other day. Major splurge but worth it. If you like tokidoki, you should check out the postcard book. It comes with two versions of each pc--one colored and one to color!
Response: yw! ^^ I am super obsessed with collecting them myself. TOKIDOKI HAS A POSTCARD BOOK?!?! no way. I must check this out! My friend just picked up the tokidoki coloring for adults book and it is the CUTEST^^
Comment: Thank you for the calming image of pickled vegetables and for sharing the motivation of movement, Christy! I felt exactly the same way on Tuesday when I went to sub a Zumba class -- it just felt so good to not sit anymore :) Hope you had a good workout and are having a good weekend!
Response: yw ^^ I need to pick up my game lately - I feel like I've just been too busy to really put the effort in.
Comment: Hi Christy!
Thanks for the beautiful postcard from Mammoth Hot Springs!! Gorgeous!!!
Im so glad you had a great time! I grew up with hot springs near by (aspen Colorado) and really miss the Glenwood Springs Hot springs pool!!!!
Comment: Got the pkg today from Amazon. I am pretty sure it is from you, but there was no note or paper like they usually put in. But I love that Birthday tea - one of my favorites and haven't had it in a very long time. The penguin is super cute and very soft. Thanks so much.
Response: You are correct - that was from me! I am so stoked you liked what I sent! I thought the birthday tea from that company would be quite fitting :)
Comment: Thank you for the pretty PC. I like how the colors are on these buildings. We have a similar building here in Houston. It is the FBI building. The whole building is just a standard grey color except one window, offset to the right hand side, and painted bright green. I mean BRIGHT green. Everyone wonders why, even the people who work there. I have 2 friends that work in that building.
Response: That's really neat! Strange pop of color for sure.
Comment: Thank you for the cute robot dog sticker and delicious still life apples card -- that is one of my favorite card sets, and I almost want to reach in and eat the fruit :) They are a good reminder to incorporate more greens daily. Glad you had a good walk!
Comment: Thanks for the cool card and quote from Arthur Ashe. He's from here in Richmond and we had quite a controversy about a monument to him on Monument Avenue -- there's Arthur Ashe with all the Civil War people :)
Comment: Hope you had a good Color Run 5K! I remember mistakenly inhaling during one of the color sprays when I ran it ^_^;; Thank you for the great sketch of the San Francisco harbor -- I look forward to visiting sometime next year and spending a day at the recently reopened SFMOMA :)
Response: it was epic! thank you :) YES at the blue color station they were mean and got me in my mouth lol!
Comment: Thanks for the post card! I've actually never seen Wreck it Ralph, I'm kind of behind on Disney films... My daughter just turned 3 and were only now introducing her to the classics. Happy swapping! :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful sketch of Nelson Mandela Square (I have not yet been to South Africa :) And three cheers for functional fitness -- were they inkjet or lazer printers? Happy Tuesday!
Response: you are welcome! they were mostly colored lazer printers and WOAH were they a pain!
Comment: Thanks for the strange postcard. 🤔 I also have no idea what is going on but what he does on his strange silver futon is none of my business. And why does he have to be prettier than some of the girls I've gone on dates with?
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun birthday surprise and birthday card! I love the Curious Feast postcard set!!! It's been pretty fun looking through all the photos. Silly images of food and illustrations. Who knew an up close fortune cookie would look like an aerial shot of land!?! Pretty cool! Great choice. I love it! ~ Cari
Response: You are so very welcome! I am happy I picked a good one for you :) Hope you had a wonderful birthday! ^^
Comment: Thanks for once again hosting this great swap series, and for the card of course! Love those 'Porn for Women' designs, looked throuh them in a bookshop once and was delighted to receive one for myself!
Response: always happy to host <3 yeah I love this set!
Comment: Hi Christy! Received your pc and wanted to thank you for the quote. In my own life i have said a lot of goodbyes to find that true what paula Coelho had expressed in my own life! Interesting pc! Ill have to mull over it for a bit! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you, Christy, for the exciting nail polish. I can't wait to try it. I love that you read my profile and found something to go with it. I had a giggle when I opened the polish. Thanks again. pobuffy
Response: yay I am so happy you liked it! After reading through your profile I thought it would be kinda funny ^^
Comment: Thank you for the adorable kitten on a pair of geta card and beautiful eye drawing :) I hope to visit Japan one day soon -- the culture, history, food, flora and fauna, and of course, the stationery (!!!) Hope you are having a good week!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful sunset over the San Juan Islands card -- and the encouraging quote by Robert Schuller. You're right, it feels better when I feel like things are getting done :) Happy Monday!
Response: you are welcome! hope your week is going well!
Comment: Thank you for the sunny dolphin card! (I would love to snorkel or swim with them and manatees -- not necessarily together :) -- one day.) I absolutely devoured Gone Girl just before watching the movie. (I have a pet peeve about movie tie-in covers, haha, because I don't want the actors to influence how I see the characters as I read, and I generally avoid movie versions of books, but GG the movie was engaging.) I didn't really care for the characters, but the writing, as you said, was mesmerizing. I sometimes delay finishing a book because I hate to see the characters go, but then I remember how many books I want to read next :) Happy Friday!
Response: glad you liked the card! I am getting back on reading it... only a small chunk through but it's such a good read! I unfortunately saw the movie beforehand :/
Comment: Thank you for the really cool cat coloring book! I looked through and there are some really fun pictures :) The origami paper is really pretty - lots of different patterns, so it will be fun for making my paper cranes! Thanks so much!
Response: YAY!!! I am so happy you liked what I picked out :) Have an epic birthday!
Comment: Very cute valentines! Thank you. Cute puppies and kittens--made my day. So tired of the deary weather---brought a little color into this world. Fun swap with the paper. Hope you have a delightful day!
Comment: I love the card... the funny thing is, before I even read the back I was standing at my PO box and said "What is she holding?!" Then I read the back where you said the same thing and bust out laughing. We haven't had much snow... but it has been bitterly cold. Thank you!
Comment: Loved ALL you sent! Thank you so much. I used to loved exchanging Valentines in school so opening your envelope was just like what we did in school...and seeing the goodies fall out :)
Happy Valentines Day
Response: you are SO welcome ^^ same back atcha!!!
Comment: I do love the valentines you sent to me!! the black kitten valentine is perfect because I have a kitten (almost a year old) named Jay Hay that looks just like that one! He's extra special! It's funny, I chose those valentines for this swap also, just because of that particular card! Ten hearts to you!!
Thank you so much for the other valentine items as well, it was a fun envelope to open! --Chari
Response: hehehe that's so funny how we both picked that one! So happy that you loved it <3 Have a lovely Valentine's Day :)
