Comment: Sorry so late. Thank you for my giftie. it will go in my stocking until Yule. I give hearts regardless since I won't remember to come back...AND...after all it is for the season of good cheer. So...CHEERS.
Comment: Some very philosophical musings from this Drunk PC, I like it! :D Somehow, it's still quite amazing that anyone -- or anything -- can get lost in this modern world of GPS gadgetry, doesn't it?
Comment: Wow thank you for sharing your story with me and yes I would have learned to swim after that too! But I can understand being distracted by the ships! Thank you for the washi and all the beautiful stickers! Such fun I have some ideas already for them!
Comment: Hi Kathryn! What a great list! I haven't read any of this book and am intrigued by all of them. I'm adding them all to my goodreads tbr , thank you for including the links! Thank you, happy reading! :)
Comment: WOW! Beautiful pictures. I am so jealous. It is cold and snowy here and I miss the sunshine. I LOVED your daughters drawings on the window, that is just too, too cute! Thanks for sharing a little bit of your world with me.
Comment: Thank you! I loved that you had both details and over all pictures :) It feels so absurd that you were happy the yard was green on Christmas. I'm unhappy whenever there isn't snow but Christmas especially :D
Response: I know! I grew up in snow land and it still feels weird for Christmas to be green. OTOH, people really decorate their houses amazingly where it doesn't snow. Awesome light shows. :)
Comment: Thank you for your email and the lovely photos. I love the pictures of the salvia (such great colours!) and the autumn maple leaf. Thank you for sharing a tiny part of your life with me. Take care and all the best.
I am so excited to get the package! I am going to try my hardest to wait until the actual day of the gifts to open them :) I'll let you know if I have the will-power to wait. They are wrapped so cute and cleverly! Thank you :)
Comment: thank you I love the post card you chose that was awesome I love sail boats it is a passion of mine I don't get to indulge in very often . The book review was just awesome and Im going to read the book now ...thanks so much .
Response: Glad you liked the suggestion and the card!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note. I really enjoyed learning about your process. I also love the idea of the month of artmaking. I may have to try it next year. I loved the samples that you sent.They are beautiful! If you are ever interested in swapping privately, please let me know. Thanks!
Response: Thank you! I'll keep a note on private swaps. Lately my desk is inaccessible (buried under stuff), but as soon as I get it somewhat clean, let's do!
Comment: Kathryn, thanks so much for sharing your art with me! I very much like the 3 ATCs you shared from your Flickr account - and the one with the little kitty. That ship at sunset is just gorgeous!
Response: Thank you! I love the little kitty too... :)
Comment: Thank you so much for this swap! It was incredibly detailed, very instructional, really nicely written and so interesting! A little light sparked inside me when I saw that your spark is influenced by Karl Jung - we've spent a lot of time studying his work at University and it made me really happy to see that people continue to benefit from his ideas. I'll definitely be trying this out! x
Response: You're quite welcome. I'm glad it piqued your interest! :)
Comment: Thanks for the thoughtful answers and for the blank cards and wonderful chocolate! I'll write a short letter as there are various coincidences - we may even have passed one another in Syracuse when you were younger.
Comment: Yay! Thank you so much. The introduction and January are fantastic so far. I love the book mark and children's ephemera. Thank you so much for sharing with me in your letters. I look forward to reading the rest :)
Response: Oh, I'm relieved. I haven't sent much international mail, and I was a little worried. I'm glad you enjoyed the beginning so far. I'll be thinking of you throughout the year. :)
Comment: I loved your card and am so excited to open the lovely gifts on Christmas day! Thank you so much. UPDATE: I opened your gifts yesterday and was blown away by your thoughtfulness and attention to my profile. Thank you so much for starting my morning with such a blessing.
Response: You are most welcome. I hope they make you happy.
Comment: Thanks for all the fun paper, I love it! My favorite was the old sketches of women's fashion. Thanks for the awesome extras too!! This package made my night, it was so thoughtful :) the cat magnet is so fun. I'm already planning on using the map scrap to cutout some stuff to finish up my moms Christmas present. Also thanks for the book recommendation, but I've already read it, lol, the Dark Materials was one of my favorite series when I was younger. Thanks again for everything and Happy Holidays :)
Response: It makes me so happy to know this made your night. :) I wish you happy bright holidays! :)
Comment: Sorry to hear about your cat, June 2011 for me and the pain is still very raw... Your wedding dress sounds divine, refreshingly different. Oh and how wonderful was your first overseas trip - talk about killing many birds with one stone!
