Comment: Oh my, your zine could have been written about me. Same lifelong struggle, same feelings the last few years, and even the same loves! Thank you sooooo much for sharing and making a beautiful reminder of the things that keep us going. I LOVE this zine! Plus, you make the prettiest envelopes. :) Thank you!!
Comment: No worries! It just arrived today and I loved hearing about the different types of birds and animals! I love the stamps you used, plus the postmarked ones that you sent. The deer picture!! That’s going in my smash book …that I will start just as soon as life slows down a bit 😉
Comment: Thanks for the adorable bird notecard - and the bonus stickers & washi tape! I LOVE the Studio Ghibli stickers that you included!! :D I totally agree with you on preferring the temperate weather in spring & fall - so much nicer than the too hot or too cold weather.
Comment: Thank you for this beautiful collage you made! What a great idea to use washi tapes for that. I love these swaps as well because they allow me to flex my crative muscles, as you nicely put it, and find inspiration.
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome sheets! And for thinking of my kids - that is so sweet of you. I have to admit I was hoping I was the Christine on this pink strawberry envelope when I saw it on your Instagram. :D It's going straight into my junk journal.
Comment: Love the stickers! Yes, I have an overflow of stickers, too, but sometimes I have a hard time letting some of them go LOL. Thank you for the washi, too! Your wax seal is beautiful. That is something I think I want to try soon, too! Thanks again!
Comment: Happy New Year Leigh! Thank you for sharing your 2021 highlights with me :) I'm glad you were able to have such a great year despite all the difficulties with the pandemic. I love the extra goodies too! Be well! xo
Comment: Hello Leigh, Your swap came at very right time when I needed some cheer up. You did great on the card. I always adore the tiny stamps from Canada. Thanks for the extras. Here another ❤️ to you. Have a nice day! Yes… We are IG friend now.

Comment: Thank you for the adorable card and awesome washi assortment! My favorite quote you sent is, "Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you:-Maori Proverb...there were a lot of good ones!
Response: You're so very welcome! Thank you for joining my swap :) ♡

Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! You're so very welcome 🥰
Comment: Thank you so so soo much for everything! When I was bringing in my mail and saw the beautifully done princess Mononoke envelope, I became ecstatic because princess Mononoke is one of my favorite Ghibli movies (: I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed this movie after watching it for the first time because of the swap! It seems like you really enjoyed it and I agree 100% with everything you said! Yakul is also my favorite!! He's so sweet and whenever I see a plush of him i want to buy it but then realized maybe $30 is too much for a plush 8 inches long :D i adored how you created the little flipbook for your letter! It was so cute and fun to go through! The stationery!!! The stationery you sent was so CUTE! And i love how you made your own custom sticker sheets! That's so cool and I'm totally borrowing that idea (: I also really adore the all the washi and especially the mushroom themed things! Thank you so so much! ❤️

Comment: Thank you so much for the nice letter! I love your handwriting and your lettering, as well as your envelope. I am glad writing the letter was cathartic for you.

Comment: Thank you for you email, I also love learning things about other people especially just random things we probably wouldn't normally ask. It was fun learning these facts about you and learning that I am still not alone with my anxiety (though mine revolves around being a single parent mostly, but can be irrational thoughts that cause it) and also my fear of spiders haha. Happy swapping xoxo
Response: Thank you for rating! I hope you are able to manage your anxiety in a healthy way, I know it's hard for me sometimes. Happy swapping <3
Comment: Thanks for resending. I usually find 'missing' emails in my junk folder but not this time.
I found it interesting that some Lycaenidae larvae can induce ants to feed them. I want to know how they do that.
