Holiday Card Exchange 2014?

I was wondering if anyone would like to exchange Christmas/Holiday cards like i've done in previous years? I know people on my friend's list haven't been around as much but its still something nice to do.
I can't really afford to include any extras this time around,but I can offer some of my duplicate pokemon cards if thats of interest. If you have a favorite pokemon or certain (common-uncommon mostly) card you are seeking,let me know!

Sending cards to the following people so far:
korth
spottyfawn
shenzino
Kura pokedoll

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to make a post wishing everyone a Merry Christmas today. ^^ I was going to post this earlier in the day but the internet browser portion of my computer has been ridiculously slow lately.

 My 3DS's internet is alot slower in my room too, is our new wi-fi connection that much weaker? Might need to look into that.

So far this Chistmas has been very quiet,but we will be visiting my Aunt & Uncle at 3pm for dinner. This is what we have done for most years in recent history since my dad's side of the family seems to put icreasingly less effort into holiday festivities.

Even if not everyone does much of anythng today I hope this is still a fun day for you all. <3

An early christmas present :3

Target often has nice seasonal decorations,but some are much pricier than others. This year I saw this beautiful pair of large laying porcelain deer- but at $29.99 each, it was just too costly to buy them. They had less costly deer heads but I was not a fan of those,lol.

On Sunday we went to Target to do some grocery shopping (its a super target) & I noticed on the way out that that section of merchandise  was on clearance . Two does were still left over but I saw no clearance tag on them so I didn't get one.

On the next day, it would turn out that my mom forgot to buy something that she needed from there so we went back to the store. I went to see if the  laying deer were on sale at this point,the whole aisle was now 50% off...but both deer were now gone! :c I wouldn't have thought that something like that would sell out in less than 12 hours...

My mom said we could look at the other Target around us (its about 10 mins from this one) and at first it seemed really picked over. But hiding in the floral section was one last deer! So I got my doe after all. ^^ My mom paid for her for me as a Christmas present. <3

I will be keeping her out all year,especially since she goes well with the decor of my room. It says she's a reindeer but looks more like a white-tailed deer to me? o.o

I am thinking of giving her some sort of accessory for each season? What do you guys think?

Christmas Exchange 2013 Results

I waited until today to post this just in case anything new came in the mail but it was just junk mail today. ^^;  This time around the corresponence was quite a bit lower than in the previous two years but I did get some nice things from pheonixxfoxx & korth.

For the most part I got a thank you from most of the people I sent something to if nothing else but a few I am not sure if they got what was sent or not-hopefully they did!

Unfortunately this time around I missed out on ktmonkeyj 's annual sign up for her cards on pkmncollectors .A bit sad about that but my internet was acting up for a few days so I wasn't able to see the post.

I have some stuff for tamago226 set aside still but I have to get her Japanese address before I send that to her. That's more for new years anyway though. =p

Anyways, on to what I got!

From pheonixxfoxx I got her very touching memorial card for her Meyer's parrot Noodle. I actually teared up reading what the inside of it says. ;_;  Those are very cute christmas photos of Noodle btw. <3

She also gave me some trading cards that I was looking for! (The Mightyena in the sleeve is a bootleg so I am keeping it separately.)

Now I can cross off two of the Poochyena cards from my wish-list.  The official mightyena card is a non-holo version of a card I have, so in that way its not a duplicate! The Rainbow dash was one that I was wanting as well so thank you very much for all of these. ^^

From korth I got a treat bag of candy & one of those loom band bracelet things. In colors that I like to boot! I had been curious about these so thank you. I wasn't expecting anything beyond a card from anyone so this was a nice surprise. I also didn't know that candy cane tootsiepops was a thing. o_o

Btw, I put my bracelet on my Pokemon Center Fennekin, Avion:

I think it fits him well!

So, for now that's about it but thank you both very much! I really do appreciate this.  ♥

Christmas Cards & Packages have been shipped!

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and first week of December!  We just had a small Thanksgiving at my Aunt and Uncle's house-my cousin who is living with us had to work at Ihop all day,which wasn't very fun for him obviously.  Now my mom and I are starting to decorate for the Holidays but we aren't done yet.

In a bit i'll post some photos of how my room is decorated for the holidays this year, i'm actually doing a bit more than I did last year. I'll be decorating my bathroom too but I have to clean it first.

Anyways,on to the main reason that I made this post: I have shipped the majority of the cards/packages out now! They should arrive by the end of the week (hopefully). I tried to give everyone atleast a little something extra, I hope you all like what I gave.

2013 Holiday Card/Gift exchange Sign Ups!

I know its a bit early, but I'm kind of in the spirits now. For the past two years, I've done a small card/gift exchange here on LJ. I would like to continue the tradition again this year!  =D

This year, I can't buy too much for people but I have quite a few things that I can still give away such as: MLP stuff, Pokemon cards + a few other Pokemon items, animal figures and plushies! (In addition to small Christmas items like candy and ornaments.)

To give me an idea of what to give everyone please fill out this little questionnaire when signing up:

What are your favorite Pokemon? Are you looking for any Pokemon Cards in particular? (English only,sorry)
Do you like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? If so, what are your favorite characters? Are you looking for any merch in particular?
What are your favorite types of animals?
What are your favorite colors?
Do you have any Christmas items that you like in particular?
What kinds of candy do you like?
(Please let me know if you have any allergies)

Feel free to mention something else if you would like,you can share wish-lists too- I just can't promise I will be able to get things off of them.

If you just want a plain card with nothing else,that's fine too! Just let me know.  If you don't like Pokemon or MLP, just don't answer those questions.

Lastly: If you would like me to draw anything for you, such as OC's/fursonas - link refs please! I will need everyones' addresses again as well!

Here is my wish-list:

You have plenty of time to sign up, so no rush for those interested. It's okay if you can't send your card until after Christmas for some reason. ♥

Nothing super interesting has been going on these past ten days, but the visit to my Dad's side went alright. It wasn't quite as bad as I expected,but it wasn't anything wonderful either-it was just okay. The worst part is my Aunt Christine made us all wait an hour before we could do anything that was planned so that she could go to her Grandson's house and "make him smile for Christmas photos". Its like dude, who cares. XD

A couple days ago, my I <3 Eeevee package came! I'm really happy to have them finally, and the collar I had bought for the big eevee in advance fits her perfectly:

(Sorry the pic is a bit blurry). I put my Pokebox Eevee charm on the hoop part. c:

I still have to mail out one last Christmas card then i'm done with all that stuff, but  I got pheonixxfoxx's& korth's already. Thank you so much guys,I loved both of them. Korth-Thank you for drawing Kura accurately too! (Not everyone is so good with this. X3)

Well, I guess that's about it for now, but i'd like to say welcome to my new LJ friends from pkmncollectors! =D Oh, and on a final note, I'd like to offer my condolences for the victims from the Connecticut shooting on Friday,its truly sad and couldn't have come at a worst time of the year...

Todayallinia's christmas exchange stuff arrived. <3 So with that, I got something from everyone in the exchange but one person.


I got: two candy canes ( one was broken though so I didn't include it in the photo), three pokemon candies, some sort of cookie-type item from the pokemon center, a card (that has audino pokedoll stickers on it) and an oshawott "racer" toy thingie.

None of this is duplicate stuff, so that is good too.I like the oshawott-but what is it?XD


I think it is one of those items that 7-11 sells in Japan during the summer when a new pokemon movie is out,but i'm not sure. If it is,does anyone know what company made it and the year? (Need to know this for my collection website.)

But regardless,thank you to allina and everyone that gave me anything as a part of this Christmas exchange, I had fun with it. I'll do it again next year if people are interested. ^^
