Do any of you guys like to go thrifting or do DIY projects? My dad and I really like to! We love going around to thrift stores and digging up cool finds, as well as using what we find at the thrift store to fix or modify things we have around the house. I thought it would be fun to show the juxtaposition between the obviously very large amount of hats Chapel owns and her being overly preachy about the values of thrifting and DIY’ing. I think my favorite part about this strip is how the hat on Chapel’s head is just sort of the elephant in the room – no one mentions she’s wearing an enormous green headpiece, but everyone notices it.

Do any of you guys like thrifting or DIY’ing? Or do you tend more to the side of “it’s easier to buy it new from a store”? Let’s chat below, I always love our weekly discussions in the comments section!

Also, there’s something about this strip that’s VERY DIFFERENT from usual. It should be pretty obvious to figure out what it is, but still, anyone want to battle it out and see who can be the first to spot what I’ve changed?

I LOVE thrifting! In fact, I have to be a little careful - it can be really easy to slide into a Hoarder House when you love clothes, hats, and thrifting. DIY adds another dimension to the Hoarder Horror, because if you like to do it yourself, there's all that sewing equipment, and bolts and bolts of fabric and trim and box after box of patterns and that five-foot roll of pattern paper and ... or maybe it's just me. Love of clothing, love of costumes, love of hats, love of making all of the above. I need one house to live in, and one to store all my stuff!

And like you and your Dad, I would go hunting with my Dad at Englishtown Flea Market, an awe-inspiring site that has acres covered with tables. I got my first two hat treasures there when I was still in grammar school: two Las Vegas showgirl headdresses, and they were ENORMOUS and WONDERFUL! I also got my first vintage dress there: a fully-beaded black 1920s dress, for which I paid the grand sum of five dollars. *sigh*
IvyKllr 8/5/13 reply
Wow, that sounds amazing. I love hearing other people's thrifting stories! Thanks for sharing!
 Emma  9/20/13 reply
 
we were kinda poor, my family. SO almost all of my clothes were thrifted. Once in a while, there was a trip to Kmart. Which was good, cause I still carry that "secondhand is good enough" mentality.
nerdyguy 5/16/12 reply
That's so cool! That's a good mentality!

Sorry, I was asleep! I can't be responding do your comments 24/7, you know! :D
 Emma  3/15/12 reply
Yeah. Its totally OK...just wanted 2 make sure someone saw me. And AK, totally cool! Wish I was there!!! AR (Agent Robin)
3/16/12 reply
AR, I actually am in the US right now! :P
Katherine 3/17/12 reply
How about we talk at the top of the page? It's kind of weird WAYYY down there! I actually did go to Paris! :P But only once :( I saw the Eiffel tower through my hotel window! I also went to the Louvre! Do you know it? :P The Mona Lisa is actually VERY small! :( Oh, and I speak fluent French! :P (Not to brag, sorry!) Oh, and we can talk on the next strip! :P
Katherine 3/16/12 reply
I could have painted the Mona Lisa in 5 hours.

When did u start drawing Emma? How long do u draw each week? Sorry, should've asked u earlier...
Miss L.S.P 3/14/12 reply
I've been drawing ever since I was really young. I draw every day for hours at a time, but I've never counted it up to see exactly how long it is.
 Emma  3/15/12 reply
Wow! Cool!
Miss L.S.P 3/15/12 reply
 
I didn't notice that!
Kuromi 3/14/12 reply
I wanted to see if people would...
 Emma  3/7/13 reply
 
I know what changed, you drew hands on Chapel, right?
3/14/12 reply
Yup! I think everyone's figured that out by now, though! :D
 Emma  3/14/12 reply
 
I'm confused about this comic. I don't understand why buying a skirt is such a big deal. BTW I just started reading these comics my BFF Miss L.S.P. recommended them. I just finished reading all the comics. Rupert is by far the best!!!
Kuromi 3/13/12 reply
Hi, I'm so glad you like my comics! The joke about this one is that buying a skirt ISN'T such a big deal, but Chapel's making it into a big deal! :D
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH.Now the comic is funnier thank you for clarifying that. When is your next comic published?
Kuromi 3/14/12 reply
On Friday! I put up each new comic every week at 12 am PST on Fridays!
 Emma  3/14/12 reply
Is that 4 am EST ? :P
Katherine 3/14/12 reply
Aww... hey kuromi! Glad to see that you have decided to join in! :P
Miss L.S.P 3/14/12 reply
 
I also notice that there is an intense comment size change as convos get longer......
Miss L.S.P 3/13/12 reply
Very long convos on this comic!!
 Emma  3/7/13 reply
Oh yeah and I also would like to know if anyone would like to hear a riddle.... I know quite a bit.....
Miss L.S.P 3/13/12 reply
I would like to hear it! :P Please? :) =)
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
Okay umm so my friend told me this one: a car pulls up to a hotel, a woman screams and a guy gets rich really fast. what happened? Btw: Kuromi, you are NOT allowed to answer this one.. oh yes HINT: there is nobody in the car... I will tell you another hint if anyone wants it.....
Miss L.S.P 3/14/12 reply
Please please please hint!
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12 reply
 
OMG!!!! (x10000) A record for comment!!!! Whoohooo!!!! YEAH!!!!
Miss L.S.P 3/13/12 reply
Yes, definitely...
 Emma  3/7/13 reply
 
Hi Emma! Hi other people!
Emma I just want to say that your comics are super awesome and I always read them. I have only commented, like, two times before this but I am going to try to do so more! (It's like, I get here and there are already about 50 comments from all the regular people and i feel like it's too late to join the conversation.) But I'm commenting now! Yay!
Cheers!
-Ava
3/13/12 reply
Oh wow, thanks so much! I'm glad you've finally commented. Feel free to just butt into the conversations, though, I can assure you that myself and the other regulars LOVE meeting new people! And it's never too late to join the conversation. Anyway thanks for commenting and I hope you'll keep doing so! :D
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
Welcome to the world of CRAZINESS! Haha (Sorry! I'm a bit crazy!)
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
It's okay, I am too :D
Miss L.S.P 3/15/12 reply
 
There's no hedgehog!
Reader! 3/13/12 reply
No, Rupert isn't in every strip!
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
 
Hey Emma! Can you tell me what day you made this website (it's this month, right) ? That way, we can celebrate the one year anniversary! :P
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
Anniversary? I uhhhh.... mean birthday! Oops! XP
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
Actually, the term commonly used in the webcomics community is anniversary, not birthday. And it's May 14th! We'll have to celebrate!
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
Yay! Ok! Hehe...
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
It;s in 2 months and 1 day! Yay! :D
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
Hey, that's two days away from my birthday! It's May 12th!!!
Is it just me, or has Ginny Weasley fan mysteriously disappeared?
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/13/12 reply
Yes I think... But look at the very bottom of this page, she wrote something today so I guess not...
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
It also has been a couple days since Dr. Taxil Necrobane has commented too...
Miss L.S.P 3/14/12 reply
 
:0 Tee hee!
Stone Soup Reader 3/13/12 reply
I'm glad you laughed at the strip!
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
 
Okay, I am confused(x100) about that really lonnnnnng conversation going on down there..... so I guess there is 2 CLARE ROXs? BTW I totally love the games that we play in the comment zones! Does anyone have any other fun games that we could play? Or riddles? I LOVE riddles!!!!
Miss L.S.P 3/12/12 reply
Haha it's fun reading the comments! I'm not very inventive for riddles though... :P :S
Katherine 3/12/12 reply
What the...?
What the heck was that convo?!?!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/12/12 reply
It could have been someone pretending to be two people... (If it's not, sorry!)
Katherine 3/12/12 reply
That's what I'm starting to think, too, because whenever one of them changed their name, the other's name would change as well. Ah, if it really was someone trying to prank me, that'd be very sad...
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
yes, it would.... I don't even get it when they or her/him try to explain something sadly.... I hope ONE of them changes their nickname... otherwise it would be very confusing to keep up with convorsations...
Miss L.S.P 3/12/12 reply
Yes, very sad indeed... :(
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
I don't know... I come to this website, I scroll down, and I see this LONGGGGGGGGG conversation... :P
Katherine 3/12/12 reply
 
Wow! 123 comments not including this one and it's only Monday....
Miss L.S.P 3/12/12 reply
This strip has the record..
 Emma  3/7/13 reply
 
No socks, either. But some people don't put them on ALL the time.
Blarber123 3/12/12 reply
Chapel actually never wears socks.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
 
HER DRESS!!!! YOU CHANGED HER DRESS!!!! IT'S NOT BLACK AND IT'S NOT A NIGHTGOWN!!!! (I don't think)
Blarber123 3/12/12 reply
No, actually, it is her nightgown. Chapel either wears her black dress or this nightgown, which she's worn before. And we can stop guessing now, people have already figured out that what I changed was Chapel's hands!
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
 
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME! Change your clocks to one hour later! Just saying! :P
Katherine 3/11/12 reply
Ugh, I hate Daylight Savings...I want my hours!
 Emma  3/11/12 reply
(grumble, grumble) accursed day star! i want my sleep back!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/12/12 reply
Ugh, same. And I'm coming down with a cold, so I've been sleeping badly as well.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
go ask your mom to get some Zinc lozenges (perfurably ones called "Cold ezz" or so). those work to beat down colds. well, they work for me, try them for your self.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/12/12 reply
Oh my gosh, that's super weird that you mentioned it! I actually sent my Dad to buy me some zinc lozenges just yesterday, because last time I Dad a cold they REALLY helped. So yeah, I've been eating them all day! They help with my sore throat, too.
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
I hope you feel better!
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
I am truly surprised at how close our minds work. I am starting to worry that you might be my long lost grand daughter.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/13/12 reply
So do I! I got up today, and it was 6 o'clock, but to me, it felt like 5 o'clock! Grrrrrrr >:( :P
Katherine 3/12/12 reply
You get up at 6? Wow, that's early! I get up at 8:30 on weekdays and 10 on the weekends.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
Yeah, I heard you were home schooled? I think that's probably the answer! :P I go to a public school hehe!
Katherine 3/12/12 reply
 
Hey, hey, peoples of Chapel Chornicles, let's start up another game!
Ohhh, I've been wanting to do this FOREVER...
Okay. Here goes:
THE NAME: How Do I Look?
THE RULES: Pick a commenter, any commenter (or more than 1 if you'd like) and guess what they look like!
THE CATCH: The commenter who you are guessing about can only answer you in yes or no responses! NO HINTS!
Let's see how well we can guess each other's appearance based on our Internet personalities... GO!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
Here's my entry:
MISS L.S.P
Cropped black hair, always smiling, tall-ish, easily amused :)
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
I guess I don't really count in this one because everyone knows what I look like...but I'll try doing it for other people!

Harry Potter PWNS ALL: Longish blond hair, medium height, very energetic, has lots of friends!

I'm probably totally off, but who cares. Also, don't ever worry about spamming my tumblr inbox! Getting messages on tumblr is the most fun thing.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
No on the hair color, but yes on everything else! You're a good guesser Emma :DDD
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
What's your actual hair color/length then? I'm curious! And wow, I'm actually super surprised I got the other ones right...
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
I have wavy brown hair, and you were right, it is longish! It used to be reeeeaaaly short, but I grew it out (THANK GAWD)
and i also used to have glasses but I got contacts in the fall THEY SAVED MY LIFE i love them <3
And I'm a nerd, so all of my friends are nerds, but yes, there are a lot of them :) thank you for thinking that by the way!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
AND JUST IN CASE ANY COMMENTER OUT THERE DOESN'T KNOW, I AM A GIRL
just making sure that got out there THAT WASNT TO YOU EMMA FYI ;)
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
I think everyone knows you're a girl...hopefully?
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
I know, I just wanted to make sure because i dont think i ever actually said it
I'm SO WEIRD XDDDDD
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
Yeah, right, like your Harry Potter. Harry Poter isn't even real!
Stone Soup Reader 3/13/12 reply
It doesn't care if he's real or not though right? It doesn't exclude that fact that the books and the movies rock!!
Miss L.S.P 3/13/12 reply
Yeah they totally rock!
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
I sure thought so..........
Miss L.S.P 3/11/12 reply
I didn't know... :S :P Hehe...
Katherine 3/11/12 reply
YES contacts are the best! I'm nearsighted in my left eye so I wear only one contact, but still, it's great. Nerd friends are the best! Most of my fandom friends are my tumblr tomodachis though.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
YARIN (assuming most of the people here are girls-- nothing against you if you're a boy. haha)
Dark hair, funny, creative.
Best guess. XD
Emily13 3/11/12 reply
No on the hair. kinda on the second part and third.yes on the fourth.
I vision you with brown hair just to say....
Miss L.S.P 3/11/12 reply
Yes you are right on me!!!!
Hmm...blonde hair then? Medium height?
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/12/12 reply
No, brown hair (although it is so dark that it might look a little black). I'm not super tall compared to some people but, yes, I am tall(-ish more to me). I laugh a lot with my friends, but not when somebody insults me or is purposely trying to bother me. I sometimes can have a hard time not laughing at certain things....
Miss L.S.P 3/12/12 reply
Omg I laugh at EVERYTHING same!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/12/12 reply
really? that is so cool! somebody like me! What's your favorite HP movie? Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2 ROCK!!!!
Miss L.S.P 3/12/12 reply
Oh yeah and my hair is wavy too! :D
Miss L.S.P 3/12/12 reply
You know what? You kind of look like an original character of mine in a Harry Potter Next Generation fanfic i'm writing ;)
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/13/12 reply
That is so cool!!!! I feel really awesome to have met somebody like you even though it's on the computer!! :P
Miss L.S.P 3/14/12 reply
OHHH sentimental web comic comments are so pwn
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/16/12 reply
I feel the same way about you too I HAVE SO MANY NEW INTERNET BUDDIES FROM THIS SITE
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/16/12 reply
I know! It rocks (x1000000.....) :D
Miss L.S.P 3/16/12 reply
YES I totally agree! I LOVE Prisoner of Azkaban as well; my favorite book is Goblet of Fire! You?
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/13/12 reply
I am surprised no one is trying to describe me yet.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/11/12 reply
Haha me neither!
Katherine 3/11/12 reply
Or me! Naw just kidding! :]
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12 reply
 
Bwahaha that headpiece is defying the laws of physics right there xD

Loving the hands too - it really adds a lot to her design! I was just thinking the other day your art has got a lot sleeker since the start of the comic, it's looking really really good! (Not that it didn't before, but you get what I mean :P) I like it :D
Kiwifruit 3/10/12 reply
Maybe the headpiece is attached to her chin with a cord or something...that could explain how it stays on!

Wow, thanks so much for the compliment! I'm really pleased with how the hands look, and hearing that people think my art has improved is the highest compliment for me. Thank you! <3
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
 
I also really like the " gasp!" part! That is just too funny!
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
I thought it was pretty funny, too! I like the idea that Chapel suddenly interrupts her parents' conversations to monologue about thrifting. :D
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
 
I really can't believe that hat..... I totally would love to own one like that!
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
It actually exists! Isn't it beautiful? I want one so badly.
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
Seriously? WAAAAAAHHHHHH I want one!!!! They must be really expensive!
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
And Emma, did you draw that hat from memory or a website? I would love to know!
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
I looked at a picture of it so I could draw it exactly! This is the photo I based it off of even though I adjusted the colors a bit to suit Chapel more.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
Beautiful! Although I like the version that you drew better.
Miss L.S.P 3/11/12 reply
Yeah, I always try to tweak the hats I draw a little bit! :D Thanks!
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
 
how come chapel has hands now?
3/9/12 reply
I felt like it was time I gave her some for real! :D
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
 
OOOOOOOH NO DERF SHE HAS HANDS
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/9/12 reply
Derf?
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
AHHHHHH
just finished Mockingjay...sigh.
Suzanne Collins is an evil, sadistic genius ;)
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/9/12 reply
I know right! But she still is an awesome author! Can't wait for March 23rd! 2 more weeks! OMG!
Great Job Emma! (Like always! :P)
Katherine 3/9/12 reply
Thanks! I'm SO excited for the movie...I'm gonna go with my best friend!
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
Yes, but I only know that from the Gregor the Overlander series.
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
I still haven't read those...I need to!
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
Yes! Please do! Some of the books are a little intense during the fighting parts.
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
The Hunger Games has teenagers murdering each other -- I've come to expect violence from Suzanne Collins! :D
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
haha totally :D
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/10/12 reply
Ugh! of course! * forgets*
Miss L.S.P 3/14/12 reply
Ah I have mixed feelings about Mockingjay...while I love the ending, I think the series almost would've been better with just the first book. The other ones got kind of formulaic...
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
I've never read them, but my friend TOTALLY gave away the ending. (glares)
Ginny Weasley fan 3/22/12 reply
I've read Hunger Games and I thought it was MAJORLY KEWL, but Catching Fire is INTENSELY BORING and my best friend's older sister/older sister's best friend completely ruined it. I am STILL MAD.
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12 reply
what's derf?
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
Well....it's actually from a really old episode of iCarly, where Carly makes up a number to trick this kid who was mean to Spencer, her brother. So, she was tutoring him, and, as revenge, she made up a number called derf, that was between five and six.
But I just use it like "No duh" but I say "No derf". Little backstory for ya there! :D
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/9/12 reply
Oh...okay...my friend used to watch iCarly, but I've never seen it.
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
XD I went WAY too far with "derf" when I watched that episode. I was like, "Derf-thousand derf-hundred and derfty derf!"
Emily13 3/11/12 reply
 
Hands!! Chapel has HANDS! That's so cool. I wish I could draw hands that well!

And whatever that THING on her head is, it has ALL MY WANT.
Morgan 3/9/12 reply
you're right yay for hands
Yarin 3/9/12 reply
Also there does my hand blade idea well I can just have her carrying a huge sword into battle
Yarin 3/9/12 reply
What exactly is this crossover going to be about anyway? I don't really think Chapel would do battle with anyone, unless it's against Justin Bieber...
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
haha!
Miss L.S.P 3/11/12 reply
Thanks so much! This is actually a super simplified version of the way I actually draw hands though. And the hat is one designed by a guy called Phillip Treacy, and some actress called Sarah Jessica Parker wore it once! If you google it, you can see a picture of the actual hat. Isn't it AMAZING?
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
 
That was jarring, I never expected to see Chapel with fingers, haha! She's got some serious explaining to do for her friends... Still no toes though. XD

I love going to thrift/resale stores. Goodwill is great, I usually find a bunch of books there. There are a few other resale shops around here that are great too-- clothes and books are the things I always look for, because they can be so expensive otherwise! Those stores are lifesavers. LOL
Emily13 3/9/12 reply
Well, I'm sure she's had the hands all along...just wrapped up in her sleeves! I bet her friends won't even notice.

Isn't Goodwill the best though? that's where my dad and I go! We love collecting amateur paintings and stuff, too. :D
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
I like Thrift Town because it's bigger and has a lot more stuff, and a couple months ago I got a very nice blazer that I still wear there for just $5!
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12 reply
I know, Goodwill is awesome! Last time I went there I was able to buy 9 books (granted, they were fairly small books, but still) for just a couple dollars. :D
Emily13 3/11/12 reply
Ooh, that's a good find! What books were they?
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley Twins. XD Not your average almost-14-year-old girl's ideal reads, but I've been reading them all my life and just love them.
Emily13 3/12/12 reply
 
Omg!!!! I really, really, REALLY LOVE that hat!!!! Also, nice hands!
Miss L.S.P 3/9/12 reply
Isn't the hat AMAZING? I want one so badly...but it's a designer hat so where can I get the money...And thanks! :D
 Emma  3/9/12 reply
 
Hey! Starting my own comic made me realize that getting comments is fun, and I realized I'd been reading your comic for months and hadn't said anything. So, just wanted to say that I love it! Great job, it really helps me start my day with a smile! Thanks!
Otter 3/9/12 reply
Wow, that was so considerate of you! I'd love to read your comic, what is it called? :D And I still can't get over how sweet this comment is -- hearing that Chapel has made someone smile is the best thing I could wish for.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
 
I have to admit, when i was a kid, my mother never made any cloths for myself. One of my grandmas was into needle point than knitting so nothing from there. But my brother and I did make other things. we made a small play house, a steam locomotive, a cannon, low altitude rockets, mini assault drone robots. you know, things inventive young boys would make.

...ok, that last one didn't get very far, but we tried.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/9/12 reply
Wow, that's actually really cool! I love hearing things like that. I love knitting (and in fact, over at my tumblr you can see a Doctor Who scarf I'm working on) and my dad has sewed costumes and cosplay for me before...but we don't make any of my normal clothes. :D
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
 
THE WALLS ARE WHITE.
Great strip by the way!!!! I don't have any thrift stores in my neigborhood, so...
Ginny Weasley fan 3/9/12 reply
AND HER HANDS ARE REALISTIC!!!!
Ginny Weasley fan 3/9/12 reply
OMG! That's so true! :D
Katherine 3/9/12 reply
Yep! :D A little change-up over here at Chapel Chronicles HQ.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
OH MY GOD! CHAPEL HAS HANDS!!!!

Geez, what's next? it'll rain spears i guess.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/9/12 reply
Rain spears? That would be crazy! AND YES SHE NOW HAS HANDS! I thought it was time for her to move past her old snake-y hands...think of her as a Pokemon that's just evolved, if you want.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
I like her snakey hands, partially because I doodle Chapel in margins and stuff and I'm good at drawing realistic anatomy EXCEPT hands. Hands are annoying.
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12 reply
YEP! You got it! That was fast, wow.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
The walls are actually more of a light purple (like a couple other rooms in Chapel's house) but yeah! :D
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
 
Hi! Is it Chapel's night dress? I LOVE the sparkly hat, and the flower! Oh, and also the half eaten piece of bread on the plate! :P
Katherine 3/9/12 reply
I guess it's not her night dress...(I looked in Cruel and Unusual Punishment :D ) hmmmm...
Katherine 3/9/12 reply
Actually whoops her nightdress does have a small change (which was totally accidental). I'll have to go fix that, thanks for catching it!
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
What was the small change? :P (If you don't mind telling me... :D)
Katherine 3/11/12 reply
^------- the comment above was posted before the comment above it hehe

It's fine, I just forgot the lace at the hem of the nightdress.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
That's OK! It's still a good strip!
Katherine 3/12/12 reply
Oh I see it! But I won't say it unless I'm allowed! ;)
Katherine 3/11/12 reply
Wow, I'm glad you like it! You're incredibly observant about all of that...
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
 
Wow! You're EARLY! YAY!
And...uh...is it the flower in the vase? The lack of a picture on the wall? Or just that Chapel's ponytail holders are green?
And no, I cant make anything to save my life, and I don't think I've ever been in a thrift store... O_o
Maybe I'll have to fix that!

Going to Goodwill stores are a great place to look if your going to thrift stores.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/9/12 reply
Taxil knows what's up, Goodwill is the place to be.
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
You DEFINITELY have to go to a thrift store, they're so much fun! The flower is certainly a different color, but I change the flowers in a lot of different strips, and there's not always a picture, and Chapel's ponytail holders change color fairly frequently! I'm still surprised you caught all of that, though -- good job!

digital furcation!
peter 3/9/12 reply
Yes indeedy! And what a great way to put it!
 Emma  3/10/12 reply
I was reading the early comics...you get up on 8:30 on SCHOOLDAYS??? Lucky! My school starts at 8:03, so I usually get up at 6:30, considering I have morning work to do and it takes 27 min. w/usual traffic to get there! (I like to be exact.) I always buy new clothes instead of going to thrift shops--not that I don't like them, I just don't have any near me. :(
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
Well, I'm homeschooled, so I can get up later! And that's a shame there aren't any thrift stores near you.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
Yeah... :(
Oh and 4 that weird person? Who claimed she was Josephine?
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
YES!!! AND I DON'T CLAIM TO BE JOSEPHINE, I AM!! THANKS A LOT FOR GIVING MY RIDDLE AWAY!!
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
Hey, Anonymous, sorry...Emma might have been, like, scared or confused. I didn't know she was supposed to figure it out alone. Really sorry--and please don't yell, even if I can't hear you.
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
W...hat? I'm not really following this conversation...there wasn't anything I was confused about (except this thread, now).
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
Well, I was just saying you might have been confused when Josephine...er, Clare...posted the "H I J K L M N O liSed" thing on Don't Rain on My Parade. Sorry 4 confusing u.
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
YEP. AND GOOD NEWS!!! A COMPUTER PERSON IS FIXING CAPS LOCK 2MRO. OH, CAPS!! AS IN EMMA T. CAPPS!!! THEY SPELL IT DIFFERENTLY, BUT...HA HA!! PARDON THE PUN. ; )
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
OMG I WAS READING SO MUCH ABOUT ROBIN I TYPED IN ROBIN 4 MY NAME!!! IT WAS REALLY CLARE.
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
I figured, since you have the caps lock on, and she doesn't! That's actually pretty funny. And yeah, caps lock is pretty similar to my name, isn't it? I've always thought that was a funny coincidence!
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
WOW U POST FAST! ALMOST LIKE INSTANT MESSAGING. : )
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply

CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
Yeah, that's a totally cool idea! Wish I had my own website, but my parents won't let me. They say Facebook is enough!!! Do you have a Facebook account, Emma & Clare?
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
There's a Chapel facebook page on the button at the top of this website -- just click on the Facebook button and you're there -- but I have a personal Facebook too at "Emma T Capps," I don't do much on there but feel free to add me if you want.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply

CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
Okay...sorry I ditched you! Family was going to Pizza Hut. And no, Emma, we're not on the same computer, we just get caught up in conversations and name ourselves each other's names. But caps lock is Clare--I, Robin Haggersly, am a TOTALLY different girl than Clare!

 Emma  3/13/12 reply
Oh yeah, and Emma? We would NEVER NEVER NEVER try to prank you. Triple promise and hope to grow fungus between our toes. We just get so caught up-and have lots of typos. Guess we should reread!

3/13/12 reply
I used to wear the green shirt and shorts every day back in middle school, but now I've branched out. If you watch my latest video on my "About Me" page, you'll see I'm wearing something different. And the next comic will be out on Friday like I said above! :DDDD

3/14/12 reply
It's because this conversation has gotten too long. If you click on the green "Add Comment" button at the very top of this website, you can start a NEW conversation and the comments will look normal again. You should do that if you want!
 Emma  3/14/12 reply
I put out a new comic every Friday at midnight PST. I live in the Bay Area California! Also, in late April I'll be selling my work at a comics convention in NYC (more info on that later) so you should totally come and say hi to me in person! :D
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
Emma! I will be in NYC in April for school vacation! Do you know what days you'll be there???? Will I be able to come and buy a comic???? :D PLEASE SEE THIS COMMENT! If you don't see it (it's OK!), I will post it up higher!!!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!!
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
Yes, I will be in NYC on April 28th and 29th! I'll be posting more details about the convention on this website and on my Facebook page in a little while. It would be SO COOL if you could make it out! If you can't, you can always buy the comics year-round from the online store.
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
Oh, cool! Sadly, my vacation is April 14-22!
:(((((((((( But I will plead with my dad so that we can go back! It would be so awesome if I could come! Do you sign comics? What do you do there? (If you've been to one before of course!)
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
I sell Chapel products (basically everything that's in the online store, so comics, earrings, keychains and greeting cards) sign comics, and chat with any readers who've come to say hi! Mostly, I spend my time trying to convert new readers and getting people to sign up for my mailing list. I also visit friends of mine in the comics community.
 Emma  3/13/12 reply
That's so cool! Wow! I hope I can come!!!
Katherine 3/13/12 reply
Are you guys on the same computer or something? Because you both have the username "Clare Rox" now.
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
Okay, well I'll comment when I can. I'm excited to hear that you'll be commenting for a while, I'm really glad that you're spending time here on the site! :D
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
Yeah, wow! O yeah, are u interested in sports? Like March Madness? I live in North Carolina, so I'm going for them. Do u play any sports? And to Clare Rox, good about some fixing Caps Locks!! Also good pun.
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
I'm not interested in sports at all...I even have no idea what March Madness is! :D I do play one sport, squash, but that's only because I need some way to exercise. I'm definitely not a sporty person at all!
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
It probably doesn't matter much if someone's coming to fix it soon, but you could try holding the shift button down as a quick-fix for the Caps Lock being jammed on. Having both on gives you lower-case text again (presumably intended for things like notices or chemical formulae, where the Caps Lock may be justified).
Scott's Folly 3/12/12 reply
It's okay, I went back and saw it (and replied to your comment there). My fault! :P
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
FINE, ITS OK. AND I'M NOT YELLING--OUR COMPUTER'S CAP LOCK BUTTON WON'T TURN OFF. SORRY FOR YELLING, ANYWAY. REALLY AM SORRY, I SWEAR. NICE COMICS, BTW, EMMA! YOU ROCK AT DRAWING. I BET IT TAKES A LOT OF WORK!

AND MY NAME ISN'T REALLY JOSEPHINE, IT'S ACTUALLY CLARE. I'LL START POSTING AS "CLARE ROX" SO YOU'LL KNOW IT'S ME. SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS LOCK!
CLARE ROX 3/12/12 reply
Oh, it's totally fine! No need to apologize. I'm glad you like my comics, it really cheers me up to hear that! And whoa, you have the same username as the other Robin -- that's a tad confusing, so posting as Clare might help! :D Thanks so much for commenting, I really appreciate it!
 Emma  3/12/12 reply
OH LUCKY YOU. NO ERBS!!!!
