Comment: Hi Dezi! I hope you had a great weekend and wonderful Mother's Day. Thank you so very much for the beautiful Cowgirl ATC. I love the image that you chose and the whole design is so reminiscent of the Old West. Thanks for a very special swap. Talk to you soon -Vanne
Response: Delighted you liked it, I adore the old west so it was very fun!
Comment: Thanks for my fantastic "Mucha Medusa!" I love it! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I breathed a huge sigh of relief that it got to you safely, even though it was a PC I had to put it in something because I was so afraid it would get damaged. I'm delighted that you love it, I had a blast painting her!
Comment: What a great ATC-you really did capture some POE elements. I'll put this in my Poe corner as the rest of the word Halloween has been cancelled! Loved the encvelope-the matching postage stamps-wonderful Halloween themed extras and the fabric! Great swap partner-thanks for sharing!
Response: I tried to sneak quite a few in there, sorry about the rest of the word being cancelled. Hopefully when things get back to normal we can pick it back up.
Comment: Thank you so much for this swap, I love mail from you and this ATC with the little cat was the bestest. Not to mention all of the extras sent with it, the shiney bats are now stuck around my desk.
Response: You're very welcome, love that we were able to do this fun pastel swap! <3 Always such a pleasure!
Comment: It is beautiful. Love the simplicity, it has a place of honor on my home altar.
Response: My aesthetic is very simple so I'm always a little nervous sending it out in a world of frills lol I'm delighted you liked it enough to place it somewhere special and hope it brings you a smile every time you see it. <3
Comment: I loved this! absolutely beautiful. I currently have this cardhanging on my vanity its so beautiful. i also hung the postcards. the one of the "honor to us all scene" is perfect! I love that scene so much. The post its ive kept for a perfect special occasion. Thank you so much for this. it was perfect.
Response: Aww, I'm ridiculously pleased that you like it so much, I admit it was SO hard to send this one off. You're very welcome and thank you for hosting such a delightful series!
Comment: Came home after a long day to find the Halloween Bag Flip and I am jumping for joy just like the skeleton on the back of the bag! Loving the vintage Hallowee ephemera, Thai tea and Lovecraft postcard, along with everything else. Thank you!!! Happy Halloween.
Response: I always love sharing tea with fellow enthusiasts, and Halloween is a great time to sip a little witchy brew as I call it lol!
Comment: Oh Oh Oh, Thank you for the Eerie black postcard! I love it !! Am a big fan of black cats and have had some in the past years. I now have a Calico cat. But she has a lot of black in her. She's a beaut and I love her too pieces!
Response: Yes, I adore black cats and Calico's are gorgeous! So happy the PC got to you safe and sound lately they seem terribly prone to being lost in the mail!
Comment: OH MY GOSH!! You did a wonderful job. Mine was just a skull decorated and mounted on a canvas board (decorated of course). Mostly I feel inadequate compared to you. I signed up then chickened out doing what I wanted to do.
Response: I'm SO relieved you liked it, I messed up and mounted it a little too low and honestly he looked a little TOO gruesome at first. I added a collar and more fur to make him a little more spooky and less horrifying lol. Never feel inadequate it's always a delight to see different people trying different things! Hope you had as much fun with it as I did <3
Comment: Thank you for such a nicely written (and presented) letter! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your HP experiences and how the House crest of Slytherin perfectly suits you. I imagine we would be good friends too, as I am a Hufflepuff.
The paper still smells of coffee, so I assume you made it look vintage with some good ol’ grounds! Excellent idea - love it! The washi on a plastic tag is another super idea and I am loving this tape A LOT! Didn’t have this washis with spells or spirit animals on it yet 😉 I’m excited to add a strip into my journal! Happy swapping❤️
Response: So happy you liked it and yes that was my first time ever coffee dyeing something!
Comment: I think all of your statements are plausible! What to do? What to do? I HOPE the horse statement is a lie because that does not sound like fun, but I'm picking the luggage on the alpaca. Great job! Fun swap :-)
Response: Sadly the horse statement is true (but I still love riding). The luggage is in fact the lie but not TOO much of a stretch as we saw people using alpacas as their pack animals while in South America. Glad you had as much fun with it as I did!
Comment: ACK YOUR CARDS ARE ALWAYS THE BEST. I was so happy when I saw I got to get another card from you! id give more hearts if I could!
Response: Aw that's so sweet, thank you. I always like playing around with a bit of everything watercolor/collage/acrylics/etc. Thanks for hosting such a lovely series I'm enjoying getting to explore each princess!
Comment: OMG, love love love! You are jaw droppingly and utterly creative! I love all the extra touches from the envie decor and twine. Also, I'm so grateful for the Rowena card. I've been trying to get one for ages! I love the pin too. I shall wear it proudly~ ⚡
Response: YAY!!! When I saw you collected them I knew I had to send one. I’m glad you loved the letter I had so much fun researching and putting it together.
Comment: I would have a hard time picking just one item on that menu... there are so many things that sound delicious! Thanks for sending the menu and thanks also for the extras... This senorita DOES need a margarita!
Response: Haha! I am glad I'm not the only one who feels that way!!! Cheers and 'Buen Provecho'!
Comment: I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved your ATC!! Being someone who has a hard time coming up with too many great ideas, I thought yours for this swap was awesome! Thank you so much and for the extra stamps😊❤️
Response: Thank you so much, I love knowing my little visions are appreciated. You're welcome <3
Comment: Thank you for the awesome cards, I like the way you connected the design by extending it to all of the cards. I'm guessing it's modling paste, something I've wanted to play with but haven't had the time. Wonderful minimal style too...Thank you!
Response: Yes, my first time using modeling paste, I'd recommend it, it's fun! So glad the style wasn't TOO minimal, I always have a hard time balancing between my desire for simplicity and my desire to layer on everything under the sun. You're very welcome!
Comment: I wish I could give you ten hearts for this package! it Wass beautiful and i loved every second of opening it! it made my day. I look forward to using all of it and displaying this beautiful ATC.
Response: I had such an a amazing time creating this ATC, playing with depth and water. I also loved putting the package together! Thank you for hosting such a fantastic series of swaps, loving them all!
Comment: Your work is amazing! Thanks so much for the cool dragon art on the envie, dragon dick ATC, hand drawn postcard and tarot card. Keep me in mind if you ever wanna do a private watercolor or other swap.
Response: Aww thank you! I’ll certainly keep you in mind!
Comment: Thank you so much for a super well thought out parcel, I loved everything you sent. Especially the Vampire ATC's and the little rement boxes. I got to experiment with my macro lens on my new camera with them and they were perfect. So much love for the Jackelope(sp) artwork,that has gone right on my wall. Let me know if you ever want to swap again. xxx
Response: You are incredibly welcome, I’m delighted to hear you liked it all I tried to curate the perfect assortment for you! I will most certainly take you up on the offer to swap again sometime soon. <3
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATCs! I love tony and peter’s relationship so much!! I also really loved the layering on the black widow one, you got her silhouette so perfect! Thank you :)
Response: I'm ecstatic to hear you liked them! If you take Black widow out of her sleeve you'll see the 'portal' swings open so you can see the rest of the Vormir background better lol I spent so long painting it I felt silly covering it all up.
Comment: Wonderful letter, It is good to know my renoun as a wandsmith has begun to reach distant shores. The Pheonix feathers are a rare and special treat, they are most certainly destinued for my personal collection.
Response: Delighted the owl didn't get turned around!
Comment: OUTSTANDING!!! I only wish I did not have to wait until October to hang it up:) I love all of the details!! Thank you for sharing your talent with me and sending an amazing swap and great pc's too!!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome little mermaid pc u sent. I haven't seen that one yet. Love your answers to but I must ask what movie is let me be good to you from and where is ling from. My L was lucifer. Lol. Take care and thanks for being a part of my swaps.
Response: Let Me Be Good to you is from The Great Mouse Detective and Ling is one of Mulans friends (the one who wishes he hadn’t cut gym). I love this series so thanks for being such a lovely host and I’m so glad you liked the PC!
Comment: WOW!!! Thanks so much for the very special Marie Antoinette ATC. I love it! I can tell that you created it based on my profile likes. You are very talented! Thanks so much for joining. Take Care -Vanne
Response: You are very welcome, I'm so pleased you like how she came out! Thank you for hosting such a fun swap!
Comment: I squeed outloud when I saw your envelope! You drew cute deer on it. So adorable! Then when I opened it omgosh. I feel so spoiled. You went so above and beyond! I love love love your "Sweet Fawn" ATC, butterflies, kawaii memos and of course the extra washi. I cannot give you enough hearts! Thank you so very much!
Response: I LOVE knowing I've made someone squee lol You should have seen the lady at the post office trying to strategically ensure they didn't get covered up. I'm SO happy you liked everything and you are so very welcome.
Comment: Thank you so much for another lovely letter! I loved the continuity from the first letter to this letter. Thank you also for the lovely patch and the instant darkness powder in the last one. These letters make my day!
Response: You're welcome, I enjoyed getting the chance to continue and drop more hints about my character!
Comment: Thank you for the dog PC. I just loved it. My Bear crossed over the rainbow bridge...so now I have a 65 lb Norwegian Elk hound named Mani. I just love dogs. Thank you. bearnbabs
Response: I'm sorry to hear about Bear, but Mani sounds incredible and I'm sure Bear is giving him tips on being the best dog ever from the other side. I'm so glad you liked the PC and you have amazing taste in dogs lol
Comment: Absolutely love the crossword, what a cool idea! As far as what you're *allowed* to send, if it's on a postcard, it's allowed! I've sent PCs with nudes, middle fingers, whatever. :) Part of the fun is knowing some mail person along the way is going to notice what's on it and either be aghast or get a laugh!
Response: Ha! I’ll be a bit more daring next time then! Im glad you enjoyed the word search though it amused me immensely! Thanks for the tip and heart!
Comment: Thank you very much. I adore everything you sent. My favorite animal of all is the elephant. We have 2 geriatic girls at our zoo. One african and one asian. I found out last week that Cora our asian was the elephant Charlotte in Smokey and the Bandit 2. She is now 60 years old. I like seeing all our animals except bugs and snakes. Friday morning the 4 Sumatran tiger cubs will be coming outside for the first time. We also have 2 giraffe calves born in July and August that I love to watch with their parents. You can see tigers and giraffes on youtube The channel is TopZooKTWU
Response: Oh my goodness a debut of Tiger cubs! I was very fortunate to be able to make 2 WDW trips and got to see the tigers go from babies to teens at Animal Kingdom. Elephants are incredible, I'm SO happy you enjoyed my PL and thanks for the info I love watching those types of livestreams!
Comment: I did NOT have that Peter Pan pin!! I cried, it is awesome. I have a whole pin board of just Peter Pan pins. Everything else was wonderful too. So many fun papers for my journals. Thank you so very much!! I completely treasure that pin!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
Response: I’m really happy to make a fellow Disney fan happy! You’re super welcome, I’d love to see one of your journal layouts someday it’s always neat to see how people organize theirs!
Comment: Omgosh!!! I absolutely ♡your pocket letter!! It made my day~ and the goodies, girl you looked into my soul because everything is so me! I appreciate the time you took to read my profile, thanks so much for the pocket letter!
Response: Oh that's fantastic, I'm so happy it got you you quickly and that you enjoyed it. I loved making it for you and hope you curl up with a hot cup of tea and another good book soon!
Comment: Ahh! I am so thankful for your inchies! They are the first I have ever received and they are awesome! Your note made my heart so happy as well! Thanks for all the extra goodies. :) I'm going to make a fun collage with the inchies I get from this swap, possibly in my journal. Super excited to use yours! In your note you mentioned Villanous and Nuns on the Run, I haven't heard of these games so I'll have to check them out. Our favorite game of all time is Dominion. Much love!
Response: I'm so happy you liked them and I'd LOVE to see your collage! Yes, do check out those games they are very fun, dominion is great though understandable that you enjoy it so much!
Comment: Hi Desiree thank you so much for the lovely package! It truly made my day and definitely put a smile on my face while opening it! You truly hit the nail on the head. I wish I could give you many more hearts. And again thank you for the wonderful swap. 💗💗💗💗 )0(
Response: I’m delighted it got you safe and sound, and I’m so happy you liked it! I tried to really make sure it was curated just for you! Loved the swap and can’t wait for the next!
Comment: Such an amazing Snow White themed ATC you made for me! I always have loved the Villians! I never received a double sided one before. Very cool and creative! Hope you like mine... you definitely raised the bar! Thank you
Response: I’m so glad you liked it! I loved being able to do one of the less recognized characters. Would 100% love to swap again sometime!
Comment: THIS Is YOUR FIRST?! This flipbook is absolutely amazing! I cannot believe its your first is so incredible! I'm definitely going to be using it as inspiration for future flipbooks! Each page is so pretty! Thank you so much for the beautiful flipbook and all the goodies! Happy Valentines Day!
Response: Yes lol I completely forgot to take pictures of it before I sent it out but that just gives me an excuse to make another!
I’m SO glad to hear you liked it and that it’ll inspire you, you’re very welcome and a very happy Valentine’s Day to you too!
Comment: You made me squeal with the SPN stickers!!! Thank you so much!
To answer your question, my favorite character is a toss up between Charlie and Bobby. I cried when they both died. But of the characters still in the show...I’d agree with you on Dean. He’s loyal to the end. It’s almost a fault. Lol Thank you for such an awesome swap!!!
Response: I'm so happy to have gotten a squeal, I've been hanging on to them for a fellow fan! You're welcome and hope we can swap again sometime!
Comment: Thanks "Disneydez" for my Vintage items. I like everything including the Parisian theme, the valentines day card and the pen nibs. Maybe i'll try my hand at calligraphy after getting an inkwell.
Response: You are so very welcome, glad you liked the theme and do give calligraphy a try, my own penmanship is awful but I still make the attempt when I can!
Comment: Hi Desiree,
Thank you very much for the super cute washi samples, yummie lemon ginger tea bag and cat note sheets! Love the swap! :D
I've never heared of Betrayal Legacy, just looked it up on boardgamegeek. I'm not a fan of horror and haunted houses :p
Couple of weeks ago I got Pandemic on the brink expansion for my base game. Pandemic is my first cooperative boardgame and I like it! :)
I also love to play Settlers of Catan, I have a lot of expansions for it :)
Response: So glad you enjoyed everything! Pandemic is fantastic and challenging, you might also be interested in the games Forbidden Island/Forbidden Desert/ Forbidden Sky which are all cooperative (no horror). Catan was my first foray into the world of boardgaming and I still love that game!
Comment: I love it!! The kitty card is just purr-fect! Thank you for checking my profile. :) I love all of Debbie Macomber's books so it's hard to recommend just one - if you haven't already read her Cedar Cove series, I definitely recommend that! <3
Response: I’m so happy you liked it and thank you for the recommendation. A whole series is always a treat I’ll have to keep an eye out for them!
