      @Sharon Dunphy: this is the kind of message to wake up to that fills me with a lot of happiness and motivation <3 thank you so much!

      LOVE MY LITTLE MONSTERS!!!! You have managed to make it all come together with this whimsical yet insightful deck. Kudos and now I await the Astral deck. I think tarot readers/collectors are a special tight-knit breed. Proud to be a part.
      Thanks for everything you have done!

      My Little Monsters arrived yesterday, and I fell completely in love with your deck, Joanna, so much that I almost cried when I saw your artwork in person. Wow! It is so gorgeous and wonderful, it makes me feel happy inside just looking through the cards!

      Very readable deck, I connected right away...and loved it so much that I hit your etsy this morning and ordered one of the last remaining decks as a backup copy, so I don't have to be overly gentle with this one while shuffling for readings.

      Thank you so much for creating such an incredible deck, it's already become one of my favourites in my collection! :) And put me down for future lil monster decks, can't wait to see what you do with your next deck project! Much love to you, cheers! xo

      @Lisa May: I'm so happy and thank you for such a kind message! I think the votes are most definitely coming in for the cat deck next! ;)

      I just received my deck today and wow. Beautiful packaging (I almost hated to open it), beautiful mantra card, beautiful booklet, beautiful box, beautiful deck...I am in love! Thank you so much. If you make a black cat deck I am definitely backing it. This was worth waiting any amount of time for without a doubt.

      @Kari Darytessekhmet: thank you so much for being a part of bringing this project to life!!! YES I do plan to do another deck ;)! I was planning on another monster deck but I've had a lot of people also asking for the cats. I'm really excited!

    9. Kari Darytessekhmet on April 26, 2017

      Joanna, I got the deck today and I am amazed at how wonderful and beautiful it is. Thank you so much for bringing Monstarot to life. <3 Will you be making any other decks? I was eyeing your black cats on etsy.

      Mine came yesterday. Have not opened it yet. I'm taking it to the friend who is going to get it (she collects tarot decks), and let her do the honors.

      @David Miller: thank you so much for helping it come to life!!! I wanted the very best quality for my art and for my backers :) I'm so happy you are enjoying the deck! Xo

      Congrats, Linda! :) Did you get a shipping notice when it was shipped out? I've been excited all of April for my lil Monsters deck to finally arrive!

    18. Linda Thompson-Mills on April 18, 2017

      Hi Joanna, Wow! I just received my Little Monster Tarot, and it's fabulous! The colors, the size of the cards, the packaging -- thank you for all the little extra things you did, right down to the rock chip tied to the wrapping -- Bravo! I have only briefly had time to go through the cards, and must do a shout out for the Violinist on the Moon and the Yoga position of the 4 of Swords character. Too cool! Thank you. �

      So weird mine definitely says March 2017! @Lisa May - that concerns me that it says February and I think it's something that needs to be reported to Kickstarter as a glitch. They definitely need to know this since it seems to be a glitch in their system! I've had to report technical things when running campaigns it definitely happens :) I'm assuming you probably have before too but let me know if you need me to help with contacting them or anything!

      Oh, for some reason it says February when I look at my pledge. That's fine. Now I can have a general idea of when to be excited to check my mail. :) Thank you!

    21. Joanna Nelson 2-time creator on February 23, 2017

      @Lisa May: hi Lisa. I'm happy your excited to get the deck :)! Est. delivery was actually set for March 2017 in the campaign. Right now my printer is working very hard to get the decks to me by the end of March. I will of course do updates as I get information myself.

      Hi Joanna. The estimated shipping shows February 2017 - I'm guessing you're not going to make that at this point. Could you give an updated estimate? I am really eager to get these awesome cards!

    23. Joanna Nelson 2-time creator on February 15, 2017

      @Nellie Hopley: thank you for checking in. No I haven't sent the survey yet but I'll be sure to post an update for everyone when I do :)!
