Glad to hear my cards are arriving safely! (...Especially because I was so late in getting them out. *facedesk* Thanks, Life. :'D )
Allison - Glad you like your card! ^^ And the stamp, though I admit I can't really take credit for that, really. That just happened to be the one the post office worker picked. x3; Glad it worked, though! ^^
Carolyn - Bwee, thanks! ^^ Glad to hear you like the stickers. <3 It's one of my favourite parts of sending out my cards, I admit. x3;
Twillie - So glad you like the card <3 (And mental image! Yes, perhaps this is just the excuse needed... =o )
And speaking of cards, I, too, have received some! (...some a while ago. Thanks again, Life, for being so busy. ='D; ) So sorry for the delay in replying to these.
Carolyn - Kitty!! <3 Thanks so much for such a cute card, and for the lovely message inside. <3 (And bonus cards, too! ♥ )
Allison - Such a pretty card! And such a lovely message too, thank-you. <3
Huntress & Fraze - Many thanks for the greetings! <3 May the good things of this year continue into the next indeed.
Twillie - Pretty card! Cardinals are such a lovely wintery bird. ^^ And such pretty bird stickers inside, too!Many thanks for such a lovely card and message. <3
Celestial & Thundy - Pretty wintery robin! Thank-you both for the lovely card and messages. <3
Twillie a sweet summer card with flowers that makes me just hear the buzz of bees and the distant drone of an airplane in a clear blue sky! A beautiful composition. Thank you, I feel so catered to! ^.^
Birdy a Second Halloween card! I love how you took a winter card with colours that match Halloween and used stickers to totally transform it, at first glance I thought everything was part of the actual card because the placement works so well xD I feel very catered to, thanks for the spooks!
Celestial & Thundy BIRB THANK 4 BIRB!! thank you for the sweet messages and wishes, and my stronk-looking punchyelf ^.^
In my defence the post seems to be egregiously slow this year somehow (you'd think that it would've recovered after the pandemic but nope, this might actually be the slowest these cards have ever arrived) and our christmas stickers are still up so this is still tangentially relevant.
I will still attempt to keep this event alive in the future in spite of the postal system spiralling into the apocalypse as long as there's still interest, anyway.
So thus far we've received
Carolyn - your card came first (clearly I should've set the sending deadline to like mid-November to battle the postal system this year) and is so absolutely gorgeous I can't even. Markets and fairs have always been our jam precisely because you can find cool stuff like this <3 Thank you!
And then very shortly before New Year's we got Twillie 's card - actually so shortly that we got the card on our way out to spend New Year's at my parents' place where the card had a very active holiday alternating between lying around on coffee tables and being carried around by Sunshine because it had a kitty on it. Thank you for all of the good wishes ^^
The two-for-the-price-of-one birb card from Celestial and Thundy came sometime in the first weeks of January (and made me wonder why I haven't thought of that and kept letting Fraze get off the cardwriting hook >>) This card better be our bringer-of-good-2023-travel-and-meetup-juju, thanks to both of you <3 (And the Scip and meepits combo... actually sounds terrifyingly efficient. But also comedy.)
Then I believe the next one was Birdy 's stickersplosion card, which always goes over well with the kids <3 Particularly the Santa on the rocket, it turns out. Thank you!
And then a missive from Liou arrived sometime in the past few weeks and AAAAA immediately distracted by rainbow octopus <3 <3 Traveler was very happy with his octopus and immediately rattled off all of his rainbow animals that he drew back in Nice; he's frankly got terrifyingly impressive memory. I should laminate that card or something, to make sure that nothing happens to it. And the actual card is also magnificent; stickers! sea creatures to rival the ones in Monaco! best wishes abound! Thank you so much.
And the latest card to make it here is from Allison , all pretty and calming and somehow struck the right chord at the right time. I think these were the exact wishes we needed to get at that exact time; thank you!
This reminded me that I've been putting off an update for too long now, rip. I got a couple more cards a few weeks ago!
Celestial and Thundy- Borb-tastic art on the front, I love the winterscape the robin is sitting in <3 Thank you for both the notes and well wishes, as well as the Moon sketch =D
Liou Aw, beautiful design on the front with the wintery forest and creatures! Rave Taelia is also fantastic, I need to find an excuse now to insert a party in the magic plane in a future comic now lol. Thank you! <3
Ginz ❤ - I got your card this week! And no, a card with "Joy" on it isn't too "on the nose." It's perfect. And by the way, I could stare at your handwriting all day. So neat and pretty! And thank you for the lovely note.

It's starting to look pretty hopeless for the cards I sent you, if they haven't reached you or returned to me by now. I'm sorry, if you would like me to send a different sort of postcard soon, give me a sign?
Liou I thought I mentioned it but your card arrived a while ago! It was genuinely lovely. We were both really touched by all the message and little details, especially the two dragons. You put so much effort into it!
I am very sorry for not mentioning it earlier and making you worry: January was an insane month for me and Thundy. ^^; But rest assured we got it and it is safe and sound on our rack of cards (which we have not taken down because they are all so pretty)
Ginz ❤ I got your card! :3 I do indeed enjoy the bird design on the front, it's always neat seeing that variety of colors and patterns coming together to make a cohesive whole! I also love the little drawings you added to decorate the inside, gives the whole thing a proper cheery Christmas feel :3 Thank you for lovely card and message!
