Comment: Thank you for the 3 cute zine's. I was a bit offended and disturbed by the 23 everyday actions zine. Maybe that kind of "in your face" subjects should only be sent to people you know would appreciate it.
Response: I'm an activist. I don't only speak to people that agree or appreciate the facts of the world. I'm offended that those basic actions resulted in the deaths of American people of color. The world is in your face whether you choose to pay attention of not. Stay woke.
Comment: I sent the exact same postcard to my partner! When I received yours I was like what is my postcard doing back to me. I laughed so hard realizing it was in fact not mine! I love these cards. I have the whole set but can't just send them off to just anyone.thank you!
Comment: Awesome!! I also love the abiltiy to send a letter without a letter. I love your art that you chose to send. And I am super excited to figure out a project for the fabric. :) Thanks for sharing.
Comment: Sorry for the slow rating, first of all. (: I absolutely love the card you made. I wish the ninja squirrel would sneak in and scrub my bathroom when I wasn't looking. Thanks for taking part in the silliness!
Response: No problem chica. It was a super fun challenge. Hope to do it again!
Comment: OMG YOU SENT ME A MIX TAPE!!!! I love that you decorated both sides of the envelope. It's going up on my bulletin board. : ) Plus I love your zine, although it made me think a little too hard and now I want to go have a drink. Thanks!!
Response: haha! So glad you liked it. It was super fun going nuts with my highlighters!
Comment: Sorry that this was a late rating. Or did I rate you already? I can't tell from this website if I have rated or not. Do you know if there is a way to see if we have. Thanks so much for the postcards! :)
Comment: I finally went through everythig. Thank you so much! Everything is so inspirational! :D I've already started incorporating some of the items into my journal! Thank you so much again! :D I truly love everything. It's better than the picture. :D
Comment: I really debated about the heart. Your files were so huge (a single one was 3x bigger than my entire email with about 10 pix) that some never did download properly. But in the end, you sent more than was required so that won out. Please keep in mind that many people access SB via smart phone which cannot handle files that big. And some people are still on dial up!
Response: This scolding would be more appropriate in a private message.
Comment: This is easily the coolest envelope I have ever gotten. Your zines are great, I seriously love the Dirty Birds one so much. I love the layouts in Not My City (and the words in all of them, of course.) And the ATC's are great as always. I love your take on my t-rex, funny how most people who draw him try to replicate him instead of run with it. Thank you for a great swap- and happy early birthday ;)
Comment: Love the zine and the story within. I went out on an ice day last year, into a cemetery, looking for a geocache and ended up taking a ton of pictures of the ice coated berry filled shrubs and the trees that looked like the queen's sparkling jewels...awesome. thank you
Comment: Thanks for the lovely envie :) We've had some pretty nice spring~ish weather for the Ã¥ast couple of days but apparently it's supposed to snow again soon so.... there goes my mood :/ Love the photo, it's exactly how I might feel at that weather......
Comment: Thanks for the super awesome cards! I can't decide which is my favorite. I love the eye, but the cats are superb! Hope to meet you in another swap soon! :) (and apparently I'm in love with exclamation points today...my apologies )
Comment: I cannot believe that I have not RATED for this swap!! I am SOOOOO sorry! Funny thing is, I have yours up in my craft room. I really like it. Sometimes I see the red figure popping out and others the black lined. Its super cool.
A thousand hearts!
Comment: LOVE Poe!! Thank you! And the stickers....I picked them up 3 times at Michaels today..then put them down. I never got them and I check the mail and there they are!!! AWESOME-SAUCE!!! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for a pretty enveloppe. I just love to come home and find something colorfull and handmade in my mailbox.
Also thanks for the zine. You seem to be a fun lady and you inspired me to start making zines again.
Comment: Thanks for the yellow items and the very nice note. I was a window clerk and things changed a lot in the time I was there. I was made for retirement, doing all the crafts I didn't have time for.
Comment: Thanks for the cool postcard! What a coincidence, but I actually sent this same card for a fictious adventure PC swap ----8and made up a totally crazy story about the pic) a couple weeks ago :D I bought the postcardbook last month. I had some Wally-books as a child and they are just so mesmerizing and fun to look at :)
Comment: Yesssssssss! Thank you so very much the rad "Shooter" ATC, Evey! Great style and loved how much freedom we had with this swap! I very much appreciate the energy you put into our swap! Keep up the awesome and thanks again!
Comment: I love mixed media (: your card is awesome! And I'm over the moon to finally have a bit of your art. Your envelope was so cute and awesome I accidentally put it aside into my penpal pile when I was sorting the mail. (: Thank you.
Comment: Thanks for your letter and the zine and the sohrt booklet as well as the note. I think you hit the nail on the head that you aren't quite a serious writer because you don't feel compelled and don't have subjects. But making fun crafty things is a skill too. Enjoy.
Comment: You're so articulate, your letter reads like a novel intro. ~ I think you'd make a fantastic writer. Congrats on your recent marriage, and I hope the ravioli turned out great! Oh, and I love the raven sticker and washi tape sample, thank you. ~ I'll definitely be writing back. :)
Comment: Okay so I love this fish! I love it very much. I'm actually going to go to the store today and buy a frame for it so that I can hang it up on my wall. Thank you so much! If I could give you 5 hearts I would.
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty instax photos! The nature one is my favourite :) I wish I had written a few words to go with my photos as well but now it's a bit late since I already sent them out. Oh well, next time :P
Comment: I LOVED everything you sent! I especially love the little fox head you made, it's great! My best friend is really into nature too, so I shared the tags with her and sent her one of the owl cards even though she lives 5 minutes from me. :)
Comment: Hello and THANK YOU for the really nice ATCâ€¦.love herâ€¦.and love the stamp and the nice key cardâ€¦.will use those keys in a project coming upâ€¦â€¦ hope to see you in the mailbox againâ€¦â€¦ hugs!
Comment: Yours is my first valentine of the swap! I've loved Hello Kitty since Sanrio first introduced this quiet, cute little catty (well, Kitty has no mouth so I guess it would be quiet). Thank you for the heart stickers, too, and Happy Valentine's Day to you.
Comment: Thank you for the really neat mail art envelope and extra washi tape and paper scraps. I really like the image you put on the front of the envelope, is that an angel? It kind of looks like 2 different images put together. Very cool. :-)
Comment: I really like the way the pastels blended together in the backround. I have trouble working with them as it all seems to over blend and turn out dull for me. Cute ATC and cute notecard. Thanks
Comment: Dear Evey, I hope your mood has improve (atc), love the heart cut outs, the tag & the "might bite" stickers, good eye on the dictionary words. Let's do a swap like this again, it was a lot of fun.
Comment: Thank you so much for the decorated envie. I can see you put thought into this piece. and when I opened it WOW! The things inside were a welcome surprise! I LOVE THOSE PAPERS. You are the swappin queen... Hugs, Lizzi
Comment: What a great swap! I just loved your ATCs, your note, and the zine!! It's the first zine I've gotten actually and now I'm SO intrigued and thinking about making my own. If you have any more zines that you've done, I'd love copies of them!! We should definitely swap again and exchange some letters. :D And this notecard is quite weird, thanks :)
Comment: Nice little zine Evey, and thanks for pointing me to your blog where I could read some of the background for it. Too bad the mini-zine itself doesn't really allow for the behind-the-scenes details like that. Thanks!
Comment: Awesome envelope. As always, I enjoyed your zine. I like the paper you do it on too. Where's it from? Good luck with your new living quarters. And as Woody Allen once mentioned to Annie on the plane, "A relationship is like a shark - it has to keep moving forward or it dies. Well, what we have on our hands here is a dead shark." Like a shark, I personally have to keep moving to stay motivated in life and avoid boredum, I'm sure that applies to you too. So change is always a good move. :)
Comment: Wowzers - okay first off this zine was so well done - looked so slick. You have to tell me how you got the double sided pages. It looks so much better. I loved the story, hand lettering - LOVED IT thanks oodles
Comment: holy hell- a zine about Woody Allen gushing with his poetic verses and how they translate to your life so far. How perfect, but really, that was absolutely the most woody allen-approved format of it that I can imagine. Thanks for sharin' :)
Comment: You are amazing. Thank you for such an incredible package!!! The hearts are hung and the shirt shall be worn soon. The cards are wonderful and I have to figure out how to display them properly. I was so touched by your letter. Writing back soon!
Comment: Sorry for the late rate -- I thought I had already rated you, but I guess I didn't click "Save". Anyway -- the baggie was super awesome!! Thank you for everything, the yarn, the book (My daughter & I have already made a project from it), the birdie fabric, everything! The faux vintage pc was great! Thank you again!!
Comment: Holy crud. This has to be one of the best things I've ever received in the mail. I love the stuff that comes out of your head and may just send you a little envelope of my own in return. Is that alright?
Response: thank you soooo much. I would love that!
Comment: I got your cool envelope today...I'm getting more and more into collage, and I like it a lot. The ATC is wonderful, it'll be awhile before I'm able to part with it, but I will. Thanks so much, Evey.
Comment: Love the way you list everything - I have a few of my own lists dotted around the house as reminders of what I want to accomplish and what I have accomplished. I tend to put mine as "52 --- projects" as there are 52 weeks in the year - so a project a week. Anyway good luck with your blog and etsy store.
Comment: just to let you know, next time you might want to stick some extra postage on the envie. i had to pay a bit extra to my postman. unfortunately this also damaged the envie. :<
Response: I sent a large handmade cardboard postcard... are you perhaps mixing me up with someone else? And I took it to the counter, had it weighed and the postal clerk put a mail sticker with exact postage on it. I have no idea how that was not the correct postage. I would be happy to send you whatever you had to pay.
Comment: Ok, I love your style, from the awesome envelope to the 2 (!) fantastic ATCs! I deleted the part on my profile that said I dislike punk style things, because if it means I'd miss out on work like yours then that would stank.
Comment: Hello Evey- Thanks so much for the great map card of Texas. I don't have this one, and even if I did, I would still be happy. My motto is that a girl can never have too many map cards. :) Best wishes, Debbie Christian
Comment: I live in NJ, so I apprechiated the fact that you liked visiting Capre May and Philly =) I always visit Philly, in fact I was there a couple of nights ago..and my boyfriend and I are planning to go to Cape May on my next weekend off! Thanks for your answers!
Comment: WOW!!! What an awesome package - you found so many great black and white items!!! My fav is the owl but I really love all that you sent and feel very lucky to have had you as a partner THANK YOU!!!!â™¥
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATCs. I've never actually seen one before and these are wonderful. I really appreciate you sharing them with me. Helps give me some inspiration! Loved your envy. So cute the way you put "swap bot" on the front in the crossword squares!
Comment: Evey,Thank you so much for my owl ATC and all my little goodies. I loved the envelope as well adn took me sometime trying to get into it! very creative! Just love it all! and I have lots of sleeves! :)
Comment: Yes the envy made it and thank you.
I use the same magazine to cut out also.
Did you see the shoes? In this weeks one, I made an envy for it, but I have nto used it yet.
I started too but it was going too far, so I decided to send it closer to home.
Hey idea hit me!!!! we should send each other a letter using the shoe envy. LOLOL
Or plan it and fins the same person we owe a swap too and send then the same envy. That would be better.
Comment: A sisterly game of "kiss me deer" comes from the book Pirde & Prejudice & Zombies, a spoof written by Seth Grahame-Smith based on Jane Austen's original (I bet you're seen the cover). Loved the postcard! Thanks so much.(Can you tell I'm an English teacher?)
Comment: Thank you for the CA map postcard! I do actually have it already, but it's fine-- I enjoy postcards for the messages just as much as (or perhaps more than) the pictures themselves. So thanks for filling it up with writing! :] Can't find state maps where you live, huh?... Yeah I suppose NYC has so much to show on a postcard that the state itself just isn't one of them, haha. Bummer...
Comment: You did not sign your card - but by process of elimination I figured it out - you sent me the cousin It card right? I do like it....very odd and wonderful. I love your memoir and I love that you tattooed it as well - I love tattoos!!! Best wishes.
Response: I am super sorry about that. I always write the name of the swap and my user name at the top of every postcard I sent. Maybe they covered it up with a postal sticker bar code thing? Anyway, yes that is me. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Happy birthday although by now it is over with! I too am not much of a roller coaster fanatic, I get sick on them. I go to sleep early when I have to work but end up staying up late on weekends, it screws me up. I was on nights for 1.5 years and that still hangs on and so does napping!
Comment: Hi Every,
Just love your package....you did a great job, sending me things I love, notecards, postcards which are gorgous, tea, I LOVE TEA! Glitter stars, and Whoooo
Burts Bee's! Thanks so much......your strong to have been through all you have and be functional!
Comment: Thank you so much for the mail art envie, and all the profile goodies! Many of the stamps were new to me, so I'm happy to add them to my collection. And I really liked the mad hatter note card, and adult postcard :-D
Comment: Thanks for the Keith Richards PC, & your kind words about my journals. I do feel quite accomplished when I end one & start another. I hope someone in the future will get a kick out of them, & not toss them in the dumpster. Hope to swap with you again. Take care ;)
Comment: billy connelly card! i love him!! thank you! BTW, we moved to south dakota 6 years ago. came out this way while on a 3 week road trip 8 years ago. then decided we liked it in SD, hated los angeles, and saved up to move. found jobs the first week we looked, too. it's wonderful living by the black hills!
Comment: Thanks for another great package of stuff:) Love the little labels "from the kitchen of"..the fun ideas for kids crafts, the memo pad, adorable notecards and the good mystery book with the keys to solve the mystery!!!! Thanks for delving into my profile :)
Comment: Thanks for the great, very unique sets of stationery!!! I really like your creative style :) Your letter about yourself was nice...I'm glad you gave instructions on where to open the envelopes :)
Comment: Hey Evey, thanks so much for continuing to read my blog and leave such sincere comments. It's comments like yours that remind me why I continue to put love and effort into my words and art work! I love sharing it with amazing readers like yourself!
Comment: What a unique way to use atals pages! These look like they took you a long time! I think they are going to look great hanging above the walk way between my two living rooms as valentines decorations! Thanks so much!
Response: Oh I am so glad you like them. I was slightly worried that you would think they were too kiddie craft project, but I love them. I have mine over my mantle. :)
Comment: Jan. 26th update - have now received the atc, thanks very much for the beautiful atcs and goodies! I appreciate you sending even after such a long time, cudos!
I haven't got anything for this swap yet either, I emailed you a few days ago, but you haven't responded yet, I will re-rate when I recieve something.
Response: In the mail on dec 27. Waiting for re-rate.
Jan 26.... soooo glad it finally arrived. I was getting worried it got lost in the mail. Thank you for the re-rate.
Comment: This was, by far, the best thing that I have ever got on here. Normally, I feel like I send above and beyond and simply get back the minimum required. NOT THIS TIME, it was flat-out awesome! Evey, great package. Thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the package. It was a lot of fun to make.
Comment: Evey, I was VERY impressed by your week of RAK (#30 - sorry my feedback is so late getting to you, I'm still learning my way around here). Was so sweet doing that for your mother and it sounds like you took any chance you had to spread the RAK love around in daily life. Its inspired me to want to look for opportunities around in my daily life too more often. Thank you for sharing!!
Comment: Thanks for all the new music to listen to! A really great mix! You included a lot of songs/covers by artists I already love but never heard before so big thanks! :) My top favorite was hanuman - rodrigo y gabriella. Amazing. Thanks for shairing.
Comment: You are VOID of dumbassery, gold stars on your forehead!! Excellent selection of posties, totally did the LOL thing at "OH GOD IT"S A FLOWER". I likes your style. Would totally do a private trade sometime. :OD
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful package. I love everything in it, the piggy bank, the CD looks great. The sticky notes and the little tags are so cute. I love the tea and the magazines are a great. 2 of them we don't get down here so that will be a treat. Sorry about the late rating. Even though you sent it super early in December, it didn't arrive until yesterday. That's snail mail during the holidays.
Comment: Your mix is great - some bands I really love and some new stuff I've never heard of! I came back to give you a heart after listening to it. Also, ty for the owls and the vintage paper. The paper smelled like delicious incense. I look forward to swapping with you in the future!
Response: i am so glad you liked the music. thanks for coming back and given me a heart. :)
Comment: I can't believe you alphabetized! I haven't seen many of the movies on your list however, the ones I have seen are some of my favorites also. I like Little Miss Sunshine, The Last Picture Show (also loved the book), True Lies. I also loved Real Women Have Curves, but so many people have never heard of it. I talk it up all I can. Christmas Vacation makes me laugh EVERYTIME, even if I watch it two nights in a row. I have Stranger than Fiction on my DVR. I'll watch it tonight.
Thank you for the list.
Comment: sorry i rated you so late well you know the craziness. thanks for everything .. especially well you know :0)
we must do this again soon,.. but bigger and better !! now that we have practised i think we are ready ,
Comment: A lot of people would tell you that the romanticized vision of MT is true, but there's certainly some ugliness. When you get to visit, make sure to see Glacier National Park and you'll get your romance. ;)
Comment: i love everything you sent me.. i love bento box.. love handmade ice cream, chai tea, ice cream candy, house mold, colorful note cards, rose ring, polkadot ribbons, key, wisdom ~ ouh you must've read my profile ! thank you so much.. i will give you more than a heart !
Comment: Thankyou for the cd! The package was cool, I was sad though that I had to rip it lol. M.I.A. is great! Alot of good artists on the cd, thankyou! Oh and thankyou SOOO much for the cute owl tags!! :)
Comment: Your Thrift Store Treasures package was awesome!!! It was really exciting going through all of the surprises. Cute mug, rad shirt (wearing it now actually :P), totally can't wait to read the Dostoevsky book (was so pumped to see it in the box), gave the cd a listen...pretty cool especially for $1...the band has a bit of a punk vibe which is definitely up my alley, love black & movies so I can't wait to give the dvd a watch, and the panda pin and finger puppet...very thoughtful. Thank you so much for everything! :)
Comment: Ohmygosh. I especially loved the Stephen Lynch song; I laughed SO hard. I love that guy, but I hadn't heard that song, so that was really neat.
I loved the extra alien stuff too! Perfect for me. B)
Response: i laughed like a nut the night i first heard that song too. glad you liked the mix. thanks for the heart :)
Comment: Lovely package, thank you! I would gladly have rated a 5+hearts were it not so late, though I truly appreciate such clear communication. The journal is especially lovely and I look forward to the book.
Comment: Oh my goodness! What a delightful package! I'll admit, I opened everything at once, I have NO will power! I love everything, and it's so obvious that you based goodies on my profile and that means so much to me! Thank you SOOOOOOOOO much! I'd give you eleventy billion hearts if I could! :D
Comment: A perfect Asian influenced handcrafted little journal that I simply adore. I defn' use journals and this one is purse ready. I also love the rubber stamp you sent. Thanks for sending such a thoughtful item.;0)
Comment: I got my stuff (but it was posted late because evey was sick!).
thanks evey :)
Response: these were a few days late. i contacted her before the mailing deadline to let her know i was sick and that i needed 3 extra days. just want to clarify that this was not a long running no-send, just a life circumstance short delay that i communicated about.
Comment: What were you thinking? I'm no prude but mailing such a suggestive and obscene postcard in open mail is wrong. And I thought we were suppose make them not buy them. I appreciate the fact that you at least sent one (late) but not appropriate for this type of swap.
Response: i sent an altered postcard (which was allowed.) the post office had no problem with me sending it. there was no nudity. to each his own. Also this was sent one day late and probably would have received a 5 if she did not object to the subject matter.
