Comment: What an awesome minizine! Your first one? WOW! It is folded so well too. Thank you, I love it. It even has some of my favourite quotes in it. I took it to my mental health group today and shared it. They loved it! Now they want me to teach them how to make minizines. <3 Happy swapping.
Comment: When I saw the journal, I immediately thought, "Krista thought this was mine." ^laugh^ Sadly, mine is a pathetic comp book. That's for the mini-journal. Some mail is coming your way from me. Love ya!!
Comment: Wow. I mean wow! How much do I have to beg to get those patterns? They are beautiful and I would love to try my hand at them!
Response: for the rose pattern go to youtube and search for C.A.L. Granny Rose week #2. there are a total of 4 videos to complete the square. I will try and write up the pattern for the star Square and give it to you soon
Comment: *terribly, terribly sorry for such a late rate -been ill and am just now getting caught up on my ratings...
I LOVE the charm! :D and what a great idea -using those pesky return envies, ha ha. Hope you had a lovely 4th!
Comment: Recipes look yummy! I actually have the Shipwreck one, but we didn't really like it. My recipe doesn't say to cook it that long or that it tastes better the longer you cook it! Maybe that's why we didn't like it. I'm going to try it again in the crockpot and see if we like it better. Thanks!
Response: I hate meatloaf, but I love Shipwreck. It is the only way I will eat meatloaf or anything close to it. Mom put it in the oven before 9am church and didn't take it out until 5 for dinner. I hope it turns out better for you this time.
Comment: Yum! I can't wait to try these recipes! I love cookies and I love good cookie recipes, so we're a match! I will be trying the soft and chewy chocolate bites first, because it's hard to find a SOFT chocolate cookie. Thanks!
Comment: I am, perhaps, the only one who doesn't hate Dawn? She's not my favorite, but I thought she was an interesting addition to the show (even though the first time through she confused the heck out of me in her first episode!). I like your ATC-fun glowy/sparkley colors and a perfectly "Dawn" quote!
Comment: Thanks for the nice comments! For the sprays, I use an old Fabreeze squirt bottle or a new empty spritzer. I squirt in the ink, add water and rubbing alcohol, maybe throw in some cheap acrylic paint...voila. Works great on stencils. Tape: put large strips on piece of contact paper, paint background with quality acrylic paint. Add stamps or stripes with acrylic paint. Whatever you prefer. Happy crafting!
Comment: Sorry. But I love it very much, thank you!
Response: I sent this swap out on September 9th. If you did not get it I will remake it and resend. I would have appreciated a heads up though. I just looked and saw that I have sent to you twice before in this series. I do not know why you did not get this swap.
Update: resent this swap on 11/2. Please let me know when you receive it. I hope you reconsider the rating.
Comment: Aw, Oz! I love the use of staples--I've never seen that before in an ATC and it works for Oz. I wish he'd stayed around longer (even though I adored Willow/Tara). What a fun quote you chose, too. Great ATC!
Comment: I really liked this ATC (and blue's my favorite color). I started off not like Cordy, but I definitely came to like her over the years, especially when she was helping out the Scoobies. Anyway, thanks!
Comment: My grandson is going to LOVE the Harry Potter pc and I think we all have a little shot glass in us! You made me laugh with your description. Thanks for the great pc and for hosting this fun swap idea!
Comment: i made the exact same card for my partner!! the only difference is that i used handmade paper modge podged onto the background and made the ladder out of brown craft paper! that is so funny. good thing i made this particular one because i loved it to begin with! thank you so much!
Response: You are welcome. I'm glad you liked it. They are so cute. It was a blast to make.
Comment: Thank you so much dude, I love this postcard it rawks so hard...soon as I seen it I got hyper haha Buffy + Angel always!! The stamps were beautiful on it also..I fully agree with you Spike is so munchable haha but Giles would get raped in that library too lol cheers again hun for brightening my day! Hope you like yours! :) Buffy forevers!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Comment: Wow! This arrived super fast! I love it so much! The colors are beautiful, and the craftsmanship is so wonderful! Though I know you based your Dotee on your performer friends' costumes, it also reminds me of Harley Quinn; one of my favorite Batman Villains. Love it! It's going on my Flickr page tonight! :)) Thanks again and Happy Swapping!
Comment: I love your little scarecrow! The overalls are so cute! When I saw your dotee it reminded me that I didn't put my gardening tools on my. I had the same ones you used, but I forgot where I put them, so I didn't get to use them. Great minds think alike!
Comment: Loved the black background and the card...but I know what you mean about the patterns...I had the same thought myself...what I really liked about your card was it reminded me of space travel. Thanks again..it was nice to get another card from you!
Comment: Partners again! Thank you thank you thank you for the Zentangled Alphabet ATC make up cards! Not just one or two....but 5 ATCS!!! wow, and all so different! love them, im just beginning myself and finding it not only relaxing, but very addicting as well! So kind of you to share these with me!
Comment: Thank you so very much for the wonderful Fantasia and for angeling for the Sleeping Beauty swap I really appreciate it. It is alwway a pleasure swapping with you. Think I got a few more swaps coming your way as well :)
Comment: Hello Krista,
Thank you for the beautiful illustration you created with "C Zentangle Patterns." I love also how you used black and red in your illustration. Your C Zentangle Illustration will be a great addition to my Zentangle a-z Series. I live in Albuquerque and noticed you lived in Aztec. We are neighbors. Happy New Years!!!!
Comment: What a special pkg you sent! Thank you so much for all the wonderful Snoopy things. In a few stores here I mostly see Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang dishes, salt & pepper shakers, etc. Not nearly as much functional small things. I am so grateful to you Krista. You deserve stars, hearts, and hugs! **Merry Christmas**
Comment: Wow!!!! So many hearts for your stuffed box of scrapbooking goodness. I love the flowers, and thank you for the instructions. I seem to be all thumbs when I try to make that kind of thing.Now I can't wait to get crafting! Happy holidays. Kathy
Comment: Sorry, I am out of town for the Holidays and am unable to check my mailbox... But am operating under the assumption that everyone has sent me something I loved! More personal thank you can be expected when I get home. Cheers!
Comment: Awesome ATC! I love how you included the names of the victims. Have you read the book about Jack the Ripper by Patricia Cornwell? My mother read it and said it was fascinating. It is on my shelf but I haven't read it yet. Thanks so much!
Comment: WOW! Krista, I loved the Dexter ATC! What talent you have as an artist! The envelope literally made me LOL as I'd read a bunch of Dexter quotes in order to make my own ATC. The additional goodies are TRULY appreciated as well! Particularly the music and script papers as I recently purchased music and script embossing folders for my Cuttlebug. Those are SO going to be used in the immediate future :)
Comment: Hello Krista
Thanks for the Christmas ATC
I loved what you did with the typography, I think the rub ons worked perfectly!
Thank you for the extras you sent as well, I will be sure to put them to good use.
The card you sent with the ATC, that was TOO funny - where did you find that???
Comment: Love the Emerson quote from Pushing Daisies ... most of Emerson's lines are quite profoundly down to earth... guess that's just one of the reasons I loved that quirky show. The front of your postcard just makes me frightened... not a heights person and that narrow gauged railroad...YIKES!-0
Comment: Thank you for the postcard ! Thank you for trying sending me twice as the first card returned back to you. Im glad that we have some common interests. Sorry that I was so late to rate you , my sons have been sick . I will write you back soon.
Comment: I love love LOVE that birthday box. That snowman is the cutest thing ever (even the husband agrees and he's sick of my snowmen!). I'm not sure he's even going to get packed up each year because I found the perfect spot for him!
I just love it. I love all the little finger extras too.
You deserve way more than one heart!!
Comment: thanks for the pc i havent seen munchies but i LOVE scary movie but the ones that i cant even think of are the paranormal activity 1 and 2 my fiance wanted me to go see the 3rd but no way i think its just because how they are filmed! My fiance doesnt scare easy but these are the ones that scare him the most!!!! happy swapping!!!!
Comment: Absolutely fantastic list of stories; I'll be sure to check them all out.
Half way through Frankenstein, and it's already bothering me that the monster's called frankenstein and portrayed as a mindless oaf. Still a fantastic read.
Thanks, and Happy Halloween!!
Comment: Wow, you make this look easy! Everytime I do a zentangle, I hate what I end up with. This swap was particularly difficult for me due to being unable to get the pattern printed out, but your quarter is so nice, I may keep trying these things. :) Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard it was great.
Here at home sister and brother in law eat alot of green peppers specially when they make it in green sauce,it's too spicy for me and the rest of the family.
Comment: I think you are my musical soul mate! Hahaha. You have amazing taste in music, and you have introduced me to a few new songs. I love Repo: The genetic opera, and I too love the Grave Robber :)
Comment: Oh I love Jessica Simpson and the mix of cartoons. Thank you so much for participating and having fun with "Lust" I love my ATC. I hope you will participate in the rest as well. I am currently hosting "gluttony" too. :)
Comment: oh my goodness! i got my ATC already! It had quite an adventure...first it arrived in a "we care" usps envelope because it had been damaged in the mail. when i opened it up, your envelope was in SHREDS! but..the ATC was still in perfect shape! LOVE it for how cute it is and also for how tough it is!! thank so much!
Response: Wow. It must have had quite a journey. Glad to know it made it to you in one piece.
Comment: I loved reading the journal you created! We actually have some favorites in common, which I think is cool. I love how you also went the extra mile to fill the journal completely. I liked the design, reminds me of cherry blossoms and I like cherry blossoms.
Comment: Thanx for the "bloody" card Krista. It just made me wonder about the book itself. Is it a vampire book?
Response: Actually no. It's definitely paranormal romance. It's about 3 men, who as kids set a demon free on their town. Now they are trying to stop it with the help of 3 women. They all have ties back to the demon or the man who trapped it in the first place. It's a trilogy and very good if you like suspense and don't mind a some gory descriptions.
Comment: I think the song that best describes me is "A Better Son/Daughter" by Rilo Kiley. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder six years ago and this song really describes what it's like having to deal with something like that and being strong enough to pull through. good question!!
Comment: I love it, I love it! Thank you so much, it's perfect. I had to laugh at your note which said you were writing it in a moving vehicle - I was trying to read the note and look at the ATC while driving! :)
Comment: Hi! I love the extra explanations that you put at the top of each song. The songs that I didn't know I listened to them online as I was looking so I could hear the music. Thanks for a great song journal. = D
Comment: Thank you for the Pinnochio ATCs! They were neat! I also chose Monstro as my villain so it was cool to see your version of him! Thanks also for the extra backgrounds! :) Looking forward to the future rounds of this disney theme!
Comment: Thanks so much for the postcard! I absoloutly LOVE the theme song. I have TiVo and normally just speed through intros, but I always sing along to True Bloods. :D (postcard here: http://bit.ly/qxpN0B)
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the great share! I enjoy these swaps and getting to know something about my fellow swappers! Our oldest son was in NM recently with friends - the scenery there is just lovely! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Beautiful. Made the end of a painful full day all worth while,especially because your 2 y/o neice helped you. I get my great nephews to help me punch also they are so much stronger than I. I love involving family like you did.TYVM
Comment: Hi, thanks for the list, I enjoyed reading you =) some of the list were amazing, some were really like mines and some were just funny =P PS: in you top10 baby names is Matthew (thats my boyfriend's first name) ^_
Comment: I love the ATC. I am sorry about your friend, but happy to hear about the survivors :) Thank you for sharing with me! And I have to add, I love, love, love the Rainbow Bright paper you wrote your note on :)
Comment: Thanks for the book and the sweet note card. I really appreciate that you searched for something I might like. Bradbury is a genius and IÂ´m alread half through the "Martian Cronicles". Unfortunately, the package and the wrapper got destroyed in the mail. You could use some more tape the next time. But it was no harm done.
Comment: What a perfect card you sent me. I love the middle ages, knights of the roundtable, King Arthur, etc, and someone finally sent me a sword! Even if it is a paper one lol. Thanks for making my bad day much better.
Comment: Hello Krista,
Thank you for the quote you sent as part of the swap "Quotecard Postcard #50. I really like this quote from e.e. cummings. It is a new one I have not heard before. Thank you for introducing me to it.
