Holiday Likes

Valentine's Day: Conversation Hearts, vintage Beistle Honeycomb cards, vintage valentine postcards, hearts, more pink than red, probably the only time I like things a bit more frou-frou

Easter: rabbits, chicks, eggs, vintage postcards, Cadbury mini eggs, jelly beans

Halloween: vintage Halloween collectibles, candy buckets, crows/ravens, witches, Poe, vampires, candy corn, mellowcreme pumpkins, anything chocolate, B&W decor, spooky chic. I like macabre, but not over-the-top gorey...Edward Gorey is good though ;-).

Thanksgiving: acorns, leaves, pumpkins, wheat sheaths

Christmas: vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, snowflakes, snow, snowmen and ladies, glittery villages. I don't do the traditional red and green decor, I mostly decorate with navy, silver, white (more wintery/snowy look), with pops of bright green.

Swapping Philosophy

I strive to go beyond the swap requirements, and only send items that I would be thrilled to receive myself. For me, it's quality over quantity. I'm really appreciative of other swappers that have obviously put thought, time, and effort into their swap packages.

I always send out my swaps. If you did not receive anything from me, please let me know. I want you to be happy swapping with me. ;-)

Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday and time of year. Enjoy your fall, and new baby.
Comment: Oh my gosh!!! Christine, you really went over and above for this swap and I'm sooooo excited for October to get here so I can start opening all the envies! The book idea for all the envelopes is genius - it makes a beautiful decoration as is. Of course it will be fun to dig in, but I can wait (I think). I did open the extra gift and what a generous and very cool surprise it was too! I love the mug and hot chocolate coffin. Thank you a bunch and I'll send you a message in October. Happy Hauntings! I want to update now that I've opened everything...the book you made is just incredible! All the beautiful cards you printed about Halloween make this such a perfect keepsake. The gifts you put inside each envelope are wonderful!!! Thank you so much for making this such a special swap and a really fun month! xoxoxo
Response: Yea, I'm so glad you're excited about it! It was fun researching all the bits to include, and I ended up learning lots of interesting things. Can't wait for Halloween! Cheers!

Comment: Thank you! I am waiting to open my gift until Halloween. It's getting closer. It gets harder and harder not to take a little peak. I put them in my big Halloween bag, so I won't be tempted. Thank you also for joining these swaps! Have A Happy Day! :)

Got the Trick or Treat - September surprise when I returned from my trip. I might try to make a bag from the spider fabric and tucked the wrapped gift in my stocking to open for Hallows. You are amazing. Thanks

Hi! I'm LOVING opening my Halloween envelopes each day! The printed readables are wonderful and will make a great book at the end of the month when I put them all back in the envelope book. The gifts are awesome too!!! This is so much fun - thank you!

We are in the Countdown to Halloween swap together though may not be assigned as partners. I am reading profiles of folks in it with me as I make up my 30 envelopes. I know that writing something for each of them will take time and it feels worth it to me.

Christine!!! I was WOWED by your generous, incredible quality package of goodies!! I felt like a bit of a heel allowing you to send stamps in the first place but you took it to a point I just have to say, well lucky me! Enormous thanks for something you didn't even have to do. I'll be sure my partner is as happy, and I hope we partner up one day. I thank you and my Halloween stash thanks you! :OD
