Comment: Thanks for the AJ postcard... When I get a song stuck in my head, I have to go buy it then play it hundreds of times for a couple days! :D (thank goodness I don't have to buy the entire album anymore!)
Comment: Fun, colorful zine. It's great the zine has directions for two techniques to try. And as a bonus, you included an art journal postcard. I had not seen one before - a fun way to combine art journaling, mail art, and postcards!
Comment: Awesome zine, thank you! Thanks for the art journal postcard - what a lot of work. Love that you did your zine if full color - you inspire me. Love the colorful and collage-y look of your work.
Comment: Thanks for your most excellent mini-zine on art journalling! It's certainly very thorough and would give anyone a good start - to say the very least. I've read it through a couple of times now and I think you pretty much covered everything. Well done! Loved the ATC & all the extras, too. :)
Comment: Hi Karis...thank you for the great mini zine! I love to art journal and appreciated your ideas! I like the idea to draw my own lines...;) Thank you too for the sweet little extras...lots of fun to add to my own journal!
Comment: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Joe Purdy and Patty Griffin right to start with? Lovely. The only problem is, my two-year old got a hold of the track listing and I canNOT find it now. Do you still have it? Can you send it to me if you do? Email is fine: email@example.com
Comment: Thank you for such an honest and cathartic zine. I understand what you've described and wish you the best; hang in there. It gets better...and even if they're hard to start, doing things like this help a lot.
Comment: Thank you for the CD! I like how you made the song listing and the cover, I'll have to try to do something like that in the future. It's a great mix of songs I know I like and songs that are new to me :-)
Comment: I loved your 'zine!! I live in a house FULL of boys - 83 yr old father-in-law, 47 yr old hubby, almost 12 yr old son and 9 year old son. Not quite your classroom full of boy, but still....
Comment: Re-rated -- I now have your questionnaire as a PM. It is possible AOL put it into spam. But I did not receive it by PM previously. Anyway, I'm glad to have it and congratulations for being feisty and making sure you got a better rating. That shows you really care and I'm sorry to have caused you the trouble -- glad it's fixed.
Response: Others rated me for this swap (click view all, I sent it a LONG time ago)! I sent you a copy of the e-mail by swap-bot PM because my guess is that it went to your spam box. I am also resending to your e-mail. Please re-rate me and check your spam box!
** Thank you for fixing it so quickly! :)
Comment: Most excellent zines. I thoroughly enjoyed both of them, and feel very inspired to make my own book. I think those are the most simple straightforward, easy to understand instructions I've ever seen on book binding. I'd start right now, but I have "too much on my plate already". That prompt made me smile, but seriously, you make me want to start an art journal.
Thanks again. I'd give you more hearts if I could.
Comment: Not only did I get one Crafty zine of ossumness from Karis, I got several and an absolutely stunning atc that now is pride of place in my collection. I cannot begin to express my thank yous for this swap. And one heart really is not enough!
Comment: I loved your greatest happiness. And I sooo understand the current state of mind--someday I'll get to the gym. It's just expensive. I said that chastity was the most overrated virtue as well! Laughter. I hope you do get to live in France some day! Quirky personality is my most marked characteristic as well. Great heroes!
Thanks for sending!
Comment: I love this zine very much :-). I think hand-written zines are cool & I know nothing about art journaling, so it was really interesting to read! Even so, the extra zine was probably my favourite. Thank you very much :-)
Comment: Thanks for the art journal mini zine, it's full of ideas. I was surprised to receive it as I have just received an etsy zine from you and ordered 2 more the other day. Small world. I'll pm you about something I have that you might like!
Comment: i absolutely LOVED your zine.. i flopped right on the bed and read the whole thing last night.. it's inspiring. i've been working on some zines with more of a theme..
thanks for it and the extras.. AWESOME!!!!
Comment: I just got your zines in the mail this aternoon. I had fun reading through them. My husband and I both got creeped out by the flashlight zine. And your "Fairies of Disorder- summer 2008" is near the couch for more reading. Your list of things to do during the summer is impressive. Your kitty Vincent sounds like he is very busy chasing fairies and eating...thanks for the fun reading :)
Response: I sent this swap out twice, the first in October, and the second right after Christmas. There was a lot of work put into the dolls I sent, and I am really surprised and upset you did not get the second one.
Comment: Mera, your lovely and artful Sea Faery arrived in perfect shape. You have come up with a good way of transporting these delicate assemblages... packing jar with ribbons and leaving the embelishments and "seascapes" materials as free elements. Your way allows her environment to change and you avoid the complications of glue failures. Thanks for the beautiful work, my fab orange fabrics and the great idea!!
Comment: Your zine arrived today, yay. I love the binding! So far I've only had time to take a look at the table of contents and it looks very interesting, especially the parts about the art journal and mail art, I'm looking forward to reading it. Thank you :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the rockin Hemp Ale ATC!! Its some good stuff, thats for sure ;) Thank you for resending! I never got the first one. Also, thanks so much for all the extras, they will be put to good use ;) <3
Comment: I just got your CD! I could tell it was on its way since way before the deadline - my! Thank you so much for both the CD and the wonderful card. I'll deliver feedback on the music as soon as I got around to listening properly. :-) But it's my kind of music as far as I can tell, and I am looking forward to trying the progressive relaxation!
Comment: Thanks so much for the Activity Book and the extras. I love the journaling ideas! And recipes are right up my alley...those sound like good ones! Thanks again for keeping in touch about the swap.
Comment: Thank you for the recipes. I am eager to try the roasted vegetable cazone. I was also really amazed with the playing card. You see I have the same set of cards and I got them when I was in Austria. What a small world! Thank you for all the extras too. ~Heliogal
Comment: Very nice cards, they arrived today. Thanks for the e-mail letting me know about the reason for the delay, and for the extra stuff -- I had to laugh, though: I kept looking through the papers trying to find the ATCs and began to wonder if you forgot to include them! But there they were inside the notecard.
Comment: Thanks for the CD. Also thank you for resending another one after the first one arrived damaged. Thanks too for adding the swap requirement to the second CD that you didn't include with the first.
