Comment: Dear Lori,
Thanks so much for the tea. I could smell the coconut through the package so was very excited! Now my cupboard smells all tropical too! I am looking forward to trying the teas!
Comment: I LOOOVVVEEEEDDDD MY PACKAGE! it was wrapped beautifully and I can't wait to listen to my mixed cd in the car! I'm super happy and I loved the tag (I'm thinking homemade- loved the marbleized effect) attached to the beautiful hat. The teal looks great on me and fits my massive head LOLz. Thank you so much!!!
Comment: Two books, my my, and some extra tea to go with it. Thank you. (I happen to quite like John Dies at the End too). Either you got lucky or you checked and found out that I liked chai tea too. :D
Comment: Thank you SO MUCH for the tea! I pulled the envelope out of the mail box and I couldn't stop smelling it haha! It smelled delicious! And I was very excited to open it and see that you had given me some of your favorite loose leaf tea, and that was where the wonderful scent was coming from. Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you for your lists. Don't Worry Be Happy is such a fun song; I'm not sure if you meant Bobby MeFerrin, or Bob Marley did a cover of it? If so, I totally want to hear it! Have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you for the zine and all the extra decorative papers and mini-thread kit. I am giving you a five even though it was late. Glad to hear you got through your finals and able to get a breather now. Thanks again for a very interesting zine. Hope to swap zines with you again sometime.
Comment: Lori! AHHHHHHHH!!! I absolutely LOVE my package!!! You did a great job decorating the outside too:) My god, I can't wait to read this book!!! I have many, but have never seen this one! You sent so many items that I love!!! I can't say thanks enough for such a rockin package! ♥
Comment: Hey- your rad package brightened my day! The mixtape is beautiful and I almost hesistate to tell you this but - it won't play :/ but the moleskine is soo great! I always carry a notebook with me incase I think of a story or poem line and it's the perfect size. You are awesome and so are your packages. Skull patch is delightful. Bye now. ahha.
Comment: I was just taking your envelope apart (going to use the inside for collage) and the little stuffie heart fell out!!! THANK YOU! and the stamps are great as well. Your zine was very entertaining and I did 'dig it':)
Comment: I liked the subjects you discussed in the zine...nicely flowed from semi-serious to comical. And thank you so much for the awesome polaroid I still take polariods so it'll be nice to add this one to my collection. Thanks :)
Comment: My top three from your favorites list:
1.Roisin Murphy - Ramalama (I didn't understand if you like it yourself? :-D)
2. Florence and the Machine - Dog Days Are Over
3.Chicago - Sufjan Stevens / David Cassidy - I Think I Love You
Comment: This ATC is totally unique and awesome. Never did I think I'll get a bogroll ATC :p Thans hon - I loves it. Extra's are appreciated. Have I told you yet that I love your handwriting? If there was a Lori font I'd use it - teehee
Comment: Your letter really made my day, thank you! <3 And the zine was awesome, lots of interesting stuff! I especially liked the spread with only one grumpy guy and the hororscope (I'm an Aquarius, btw).
Comment: Lori! You just plain rock! I love your interpretation of Leo! Great ATC! I also really like what I think is a mini Zine? Its SERIOUSLY right up my alley. Also, thanks for all the extra useful spooky bits! Rockin swap and envie too!
Comment: Hells yes, I dig! I can not believe that I posted a comment to your image on Flickr earlier & then received this in the mail. lol I never had checked whom my partner would be to keep myself in suspense, only who I would be sending to. I absolutely love it, it's fabulous, even more so in person! Such a fun ATC & love the extras, the zine rocks & I did not have a copy, thanks for everyone & thank you for participating in my swap! You rock! ^_^
EDIT: I completely neglected to mention the fabulous envie, love it, & it's a keeper! Thanks! ^_^
Comment: Thank you for the awesome painted card. Just to let you know one of the extra stamps you sent adhered itself to the card in transit and when I tried to gently pull it off the card was damaged....I pm'd you regarding the stamps. Over all though thanks for the card and the swap.
Comment: Thanks for the ATC. I love it. I like how the design of the background you used looks like the glass tiles from the bathroom. I do read comics but have never read these, I will look them up. Also, when I get home tonight I will look up the band suggestions you sent. I love getting music recommendations!
Comment: Marry me. No, seriously...marry me! LOL! I LOVE your bookmark (awesome blood smears on the back), and LOVE the surprise Donnie Darko artwork on your note! The Halloween stickers? Icing on the cake(bomb)! :D Thank you!
Comment: Ha the second swap I've received from you and I'm becoming a fan of your swap cards! :D Thank you for the ATCs, I love the topic of this swap. It's insane, your drawing of James looks a lot like a friend of mine! And the praying mantis clip is fun too.
Comment: Thank you for the zine! (great way of combining two sheets of paper, never thought of that before!) The negativity bias was so creepy/great! I'm very interested in that sort of psychological stuff in humans and other animals. I'm gonna search for the songs on the music page too. Must go hide the kitchen knives now.........
Comment: lol Love you, hide the kitchen knives! Loved your zine, incredibly entertaining. Terrific work, thank you! ^_^
I'm sorry, I had this rated but, for some reason it saved my comment but, not my rating, so sorry, I rated this the day I got it, thank goodness I received another one today! Very sorry about that! I really loved your zine, btw, my alt cult is on the way from me. ~_^
Comment: Thank you soooo much!! I love the Bracelet (PEACE!!!), and the cards, and the Zines are so cool. I do remember all the ads in the back of my Archie comic books!! Thank you for the Happy Happy Mail!!
Comment: you did such a good job with this atc~! i'm impressed, usually i get some kind of background with a sticker or two slapped on. thank you â™¥ although it doesn't meet the "kawaii" requirements in the swap description i don't care :D
Comment: I loved the wonderful envies you made for me. They are so beautiful and artisitc. It has been fun looking at all the cool images you used. Thank you also for the wonderful surprise you sent too!! It was a joy to recieve!!! <3 <3 <3
Comment: Good grief, am I glad I accepted your participation, lol. How did you find the time to make up a mini-package for EACH family member? Brian loved his coffee, Elizabeth loved her comic books, cd, necklace, and ephemera, Angel will love her fabric and ephemera when she visits, and I love my ATCs and stamps. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. :)
Comment: wow, you went above and beyond! Thanks for the assortment of cool things you sent! I had borrowed that book from a friend and really enjoyed it, now I have my own copy- yay! I love all the cute stickers and my 8yo nabbed the notebook. thanks!:)
Comment: Fascinating zine topic. Truly amazing that no one called the police!!! Oh, and I need to let you know that your zine had postage due ($.20) because of the envelope being square:( The PO has such strange rules.
Response: Ahh! I'm sorry to hear that. I'll be sure to make my envelopes more rectangular from now on..
Comment: WOW! You must've picked out the prettiest ATCs you had - they are all awesome. You sent me my first fabric one :) I am adding them to my binder of ATC Inspiration! Thank you so much for the glass beads, too - they are my weakness.
Response: You're welcome! I'm so happy you liked everything.
Comment: OH MY GOSH!!! WHAT A PRECIOUS ATC!!!! I love it so much :) I just kept staring at it, so freakin cute and wonderful :) Thank you so much for all the extras and the most wonderful little package ever. I really appreciate your hard work and love you put in!! THANK YOU! <3
Comment: thanks so much for the fantastic picture/ envelope of goodness! its great to be invited into someones family (on the other side of the world) and the fantastically kitsch/ugly/amazing postcard was rad :) thansk again!
Comment: thanks for sharing, i loved listening to them :) and since you asked, i loved 'crazy' & 'take off your sunglasses' - it's a really awesome song :') & 'duet with myself' and my least favorites would be 'passion pit' & 'strong enough' thanks agian, great list :)
Comment: Oh, iÂ´m sorry for taking so long, i totally forgot. Maybe because this swap was so great! I LOVED the atcs, i think i got soo into them that rating was...forgotten! lol. IÂ´m sorry, and thank you this cool atc!
Comment: Hi Lori! I got my care package today and You definitley deserve a heart! I loved everything! I felt so special getting everything wrapped up with the pretty butterfly wrapping paper and all the cute things!! Thank you so much for everything. I really needed a pick me up today :) HUGS and I cant thank you enough!!
Comment: Sorry this rating is way late, but I enjoyed your mix and its enjoyably trashy aesthetic. "Wow, I Can Get Sexual, Too" is hilarious and tragic and, sadly, says way too much about the way we live today. I think. Maybe. Not that I'd know, of course.
Comment: Thanks so much for the doodle ATC and for angeling the Spongbob ATCs I was flaked on. I adore them all especially the halloween spongebob costume one - very creative! Thanks for being so great!
Comment: WOW!!! I received your candies and I want to say a BIG THANK YOU! :) So much lovely candies, wonderful surprise! And that Pez is so cute, my favourite Winnie the Pooh character! :) Your small notecard is really cute too!
Comment: Everyone did a wonderful job! We very much appreciated your sharing your artwork with us. We have two dogs and loved seeing the dog picture. I have been to Rome and knew right away what it was a picture of before even turning it over! David did a wonderful job on his colors! My 3 year old Caden, worked very hard on his card too. Again thank you for sharing with us. - Cass
Comment: Thanks so much for the ATC's & extras. We love David's interpretation of corn-too cute! Geena's sunflower eye is very abstract and creative! Jimmy did a fantastic job on his card too! The guitar player is very cool! My kids would be happy to swap again with your kids in the future! Thanks!
Comment: Haha YOU AGAIN. Thanks for the ATC! I love it, she's adorable! shes got freckles and its so yellow (i love yellow)! Yay summer! It reminded me of the time I went to the beach for the first time ever this summer... it's a great card to bring back that memory. Thank you <3<3
Comment: Lori, thank you so much for sending such beautiful ATCs! I absolutely LOVE the fact that they are hand-drawn and painted with TWO of my favorite animals (penguins and pandas). My daughters were thrilled, too, with the extra goodies (gum and Skittles) that you sent them. Thank you so much for thinking of them...and for sharing your gift of creativity with me! Ann
