Comment: Thank you for the books! These are both kind of out of my usual zone but I love that. I am saving one for February for my book challenge where I have to read a book gifted to me. Also, thank you very much for the bonus book. <3
Comment: Hi Christy! Thank you for the lovely letter and pile of adorable kawaii goodies! Now I really crave cookies. lol My daughter (who is 10) wants to make cookies to give to all her friends this year, so we'll be baking up a storm, too. The house is going to smell soooooo good! :) Happy Holidays!!
Comment: Thank you for the two photos! Your kitties are so adorable. I have never had a cat since everyone else in my family is allergic, but it has always been part of my plan to have one :3 Give them pats for me!
Comment: I loved this cute card! Thank you! :3 Did you know that you usually don't put the top up word mark on your lower k so they look like lower case h. Its really cute. I am into handwriting. I am weird like that. <3
Comment: Hi Christy - such an appropriate pc there for awhile! I was soooo tired of political mailings and ads! I knew your words but have worked them into a conversation as of yet! I hope I have not been errant! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Your comment made me laugh!! My "Boo" day is Tuesday, that's my first day back to work each week! Love the PC. That's a cool addition to OKC. I used to be up there all the time when I was in school at OU in Norman! Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for the note & goodies. I will be glad after the election myself. We voted early about 10 days ago, and the amount of political mailers and commercials on TV is getting insane. I just keep repeating "One week. One week. One week!"
Comment: lol Everything that is pumpkin spice is not so nice. Did you see the PM I sent where I said I celebrated the first day of FALL by going to Starbucks and ordered Pumpkin Spice latte made with whipping creme? Yea, Its was like drinking motor oil Bwhahahahhaha. I'll be paying for that calorie suicide for a long time. lol
P.s love that whale sticker!
Comment: Hi Christy! It's always nice to hear from you. :) Thank you for another wonderful swap. I wish I had some time management advice, but sadly, I suck at it. lol Though I'm sure if I just shut off my computer I'd get A LOT more done.
Comment: Hi Christy! It's always so nice to hear from you. :) Thank you for your lovely letter and extras! I also own a TON of kawaii, which is one of the reasons I adore these letter swaps -- I actually get to use it! And then I get to buy more. lol Kawaii Shop Japan is currently adding a lot of new stuff, and unfortunately I want it ALL. There goes the budget! :)
Comment: Hi Christy,
Thanks for the nice card.The big thing I like about fall is the cooled weather. I love Chicago, Have visited several times and going back next year for a conference.
Comment: Hi there Christy! Thanks so much for the postcard. Oak Lawn isn't far from here at all ... I've thought about moving over there at some point when I start having a family. Thanks so much for hosting this swap and I hope you have a beautiful weekend in the dog days of summer :)
Comment: Thanks for the notecard! I dig the aesthetic of it haha I also love to read! I’ve never won a book before but at a library here in downtown Salt Lake they have little mystery book bags for like 2 bucks! I’m planning on buying some for future swap partners or just as gifts to friends (: happy swapping ~
Comment: Hi Christy,
Thanks for the neat card. The first thing that came to mind, upon seeing the fruits, was slot machines. This is kind of funny as I don't gamble and have only ever entered casinos three times in my life.
Good words. I particularly liked "squiz".
Best Wishes, Neal
PS: Of course, I received the resend two days after receiving the original. Another nice card and words. I'll give the USPS more time next time.
Comment: I love pineapple, one of my friends at work used to bring it all the time but she's retired now and no one else brings it! I can't pick "good" fruit so I don't buy my own! Have fun in Charlotte, I'm planning a trip there in the Fall. Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for the ODD package. I love the flamingo pen, so does my kitty. Got to keep it up or she will destroy the feathers. I sent the same Lollipop hair ties in my package. Thank you so much for all the extras.
Comment: Cool PC! I didn't shoot off any fireworks myself but did see some on the 4th. My neighbors have been shooting off fireworks every night since the 3rd. I'm still waiting to see if they shoot any off tonight! It's been wet around here lately so I'm ok with it. If it gets dry again we may have to have a chat!! Thank you!
Comment: Great PC! The closest I've been to the Grand Canyon/Yellowstone is flying over in an airplane from Salt Lake to Phoenix! Would love to visit one day! Glad you have you PC collection that brings back good memories of the place!
Comment: Ty for the note and extra card. Most of your favorite summer activities are the same as mine, but no more ice cream, I haven't been in a hammock in years and no thanks on the motorcycle lol! Hope you had a great 4th my friend!
Comment: Thanks for the note and the note card ♥ I don't have plans, hubby is working so I will be staying home so I can pick him up. Son going to head out with his grandma, I'm sure. Hope you have a great 4th!
Comment: I feel bad that I've misplaced the letter, but I feel like I felt that there was a good deal of love put into it when I received it. Hoping to come back saying "it's been found!" lol
Edit: July 27 - I found it...on the kitchen counter under another piece of paper =_=
Comment: Love love the flamingos notecard. Thanks for the bonus too. When I did this swap I was one notecard short of the required five and had to make run to dollar store. Couldn’t decide so ended p buying three packs. At least I will put them to good use
Comment: Thank you for the great card. I have only been on a bike a few times. And my friends trike once. I would like to have the Gold Wing that my cousin has. It has the reverse trike kit. He got it not too long after they got them here in the states. In a shop in Joplin, MO.
Comment: Totally cute, as always! I'm so glad you hosted this series and stuck with it even when it was just us. :) I've had so much fun doing these and will be sad when it's over. Thanks for all the adorable ATCs and for being an AWESOME host!!
Response: yw! :D I want to host another one sometime ^^ you're too kind! :D
Comment: I got up here in Vegas at 3am to watch the royal wedding. I was exhausted by morning!! Mehgan's dress was perfection. Simple and elegant. Her mother Doria also looked amazing. What a celebration. Thanks for the extra notecard!!
Comment: Thank you for the note. I hate spiders, but your notecard is really cute! It made me giggle. My husband loves to doze in the hammock. He would love sleeping outside in it,but not me. To many things(spiders) might get me lol!
Comment: Hi Cristy!!!
I loved your notecard and reading about your summer plans!! Thank you SO MUCH for the washi tape and stationary!!! I loved them all especially the washi tape you used on the back of the letter! You know me and my Disney! I loved everything thank you for your kindness and generosity !
Xoxo Christina / Xtina4always
Comment: Ha ha!! What an adorable postcard! Those poor cats..😂 Reminds me of when we were kids and dressed up our poor cats in our dolls' clothes. LOL Too cute! Thanks so much for the chuckle today! :)
Response: glad you liked it! :) I used to do that too hehe :P
Comment: I've never heard of the Bull Ring, had to look it up and it looks fabulous. Did you go the Card Factory and look to see if they had some fun PCs? Glad you had a great time; I'm so jealous of people who travel as I'm unable to do so right now! Thank you!
Response: It is INCREDIBLE - got lost :P I didn't go there! But I did hit up Scribbler and Paperchase, some faves for stationery :)
Comment: My whole flight to the Dominican I felt like I was forgetting something. A week later, when we got back, I found out what it was that I Had forgotten. I didnt turn the ceiling fan off. Oops! Hope your trip is great and thanks for sharing. :D
Response: Oh no! I always forget something, can relate! trip was amazing, thanks! :D
Comment: Thank you for the mermaid card. I didn't have much spring cleaning to do, but my husband thinks that has more to do with me doing housecleaning ever couple days and staying super organized. He blames my military upbringing. LOL
Comment: Thank you for the mermaid postcard - it matches the unicorn card I got! Hope your spring cleaning is coming along... mine isn't as I have not been motivated, but I have guesting coming in 4 days - that should be motivation enough - yikes! Take care!
Response: yw :) I found those sets at Michaels and love them so much ^^ Spring cleaning is being extended indefinitely thru summer lol!
Comment: Hi Christy! Another super cute ATC! Thank you!! I would be totally cool if it ended up just being you and me in this series. I love your ATCs! But hopefully others will join, too, so you aren't just stuck with mine. lol Thanks, as always, for hosting such awesome swaps!
Response: thanks! ^^ I am totally okay with that, thanks for sticking with me on the series! :) lol! happy to host!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your day! I know what that day after leg burn feels like. MR and I like to see the world from the tops of lighthouses and towers. My legs aren't as big a fan of them as I am, lol.
Comment: Your day sounded so pleasant. I absolutely love the card! I actually taped it to the inside of our back door so I could get a giggle every time I go outside. :D And so many nice surprises! Thank you so much!
Comment: Oh my cuteness!! I LOVE it! I wish I could draw. But since I can't, I really love it when I get something from people who can. Thank you so much! And thank you for the extras -- they're perfect since we just had a beach day on vacation last week. Now back to SNOW today in Michigan. Boohoo. lol
Response: so glad to hear it! :) thanks for joining the series :D we had some 70 degree weather but now it is back to cold and rainy, blegh :/
Comment: Okay, you send REALLY fast! LOL TY for the note and goodies. Good luck in your search. We were blessed that our former landlord had an opening and asked us if we wanted it two years ago. We were able to move back into the duplex we spent 7 years in, just in the other unit lol.
Response: I do, guilty :P Still on the lookout, but also not rushing it too soon since it seems like I'm traveling a ton lately anyways.
Comment: Hi Christy! Sounds like a great day - sometimes not leaving the house and being lazy is what we need to recharge our batteries! Thanks for the fun share and extras! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Such a cute card. Sorry about the Chinese food. So far it hasn't bothered me; although, I've thought we should eat more natural. I hope your Gram gets better too. Thanks for the extras and having me in the swap too!.
Comment: Thanks for the notecard & the project life cards. I hope you & your grandmother had a good visit. I lost my Gram about 12 years ago & it tore a part of my heart out. But I have the most amazing memories. Keep making those memories.
Response: yw :) I hope she starts to feel better soon :/
Comment: Thank you for the lovely floral postcard you colored for me! I do love those awesome solar eclips stamps - thank you for using it on my pc ❤. Some of the color was gone from the pc since I think it got a bit wet in the mail.
Response: yw :) sorry to hear that the PC got a bit ruined :/
Comment: Thank you for the very pretty note card. Also the extras, can always use them. Spending the day with a friend is always fun. A long distance friend and I get on the phone and it usually ends up being 2 hours or more. Thanks again.
Response: yw :) always nice catching up with a friend!
Comment: Thanks for the notecard and writing a lot! Some words and sentences were hard to read due to the marker it was written in, but I was able to read most of it. I hope your body isn’t so sore anymore. It’s hard for me to say no to people too, but thankfully (For me) they never ask me to do anything too physical lol 🙂 thanks for the goodies.
Comment: I don't have plans, but then again I am not a partier. You should check in with @GoCindy as she seems to be in the Chi area (going to the green Chicago River) so maybe y'all can meet outside of SB!
Comment: I'm glad your Valentines Day was happy :)
I'm vegetarian, too - I'll have to check out Cooper's Hawk... we have them nearby as well, but I always expected they wouldn't have anything for me... like every other place in our area :(
Response: thanks! definitely check it out, amazing place to have dinner with some great wine! The enchiladas are veg - quite good, too!
Comment: Wow thanks for the amazing collection of new words! â€˜Abubbleâ€™ was the only one I knew! I love the adorable Donut postcard... Iâ€™m vegan but I stop occasionally by Zombee Donuts in Fullerton for a vegan donut (or two) to go:) So the card makes me smile for that and the health challenges Iâ€™ve recently had. Happy Swapping! Donut Give Up:-D
Response: yw! Vegan donuts are SO GOOD - There are a couple of really good places in downtown Chicago that have them. We do donut Fridays when everyone is in the office :)
Comment: Christy, thanks so much for this postcard ... I do believe [no, I don't just believe but I'm SURE!] that it is my absolute all time favorite postcard I've received. It's the one with the chicken if you don't remember what card you sent to who [I have that problem at times. lol] Anyways, great words and the PERFECT postcard. I love chickens [can ya tell? Ha ha!]
Response: yw! and I am so glad you liked the chicken PC :D
Comment: Hi Christy! Thank you for sharing about your weekend and the goodies - very nice of you! Sound like you had an enjoyable and relaxed weekend - a person cannot ask for more than that! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the notecard, AND an extra card. Hooray! I love your motto: "2018, yet to be seen". For one, it rhymes, and also I love the idea of keeping an open mind and being flexible. Whatever happens to you this year, I hope it's wonderful.
Response: yw :) getting good advice from strangers is always a good time lol
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 :)
Response: thanks so much! I can't wait to go back!
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!
