Comment: Thanks for hosting this swap and the beautiful ATCs. I like the idea of receiving 20 ATCs in the mail. Some of the ones I've received so far have been super and a couple of them have barely met the requirements. But I sent private messages to those senders and encouraged them to look at other websites to get ideas for ATCs and to understand what the expectations are. When I see the time you put into yours and know what I put into mine, it is a little bit frustrating to get some really shoddy stuff in the mail. But that is the chance we take. Thankfully most of the swappers on here are good ones.
Response: Thanks for being a great swapper! I hope you get lots more wonderful cards in this swap:)
Comment: I just love what you made for this swap! The ATC is so cheerful and such a great thought...the zentangle zine is lovely, as I've never really learned how to do those, and now I have a much better idea! And crocheted dish cloths are one of my favorite things of all to use, so they are already at home in my kitchen. Thank you for a wonderful package!
Comment: Wow - thanks for all of the wonderful inchies. I'm honored you sent me your first set ever! Love the red ones - nicely done. I like how they are have the same tone/flavor and form a set. And the little rainbow birds are adorable! Great swap!
Comment: Hi Laura!
I wish there was an option to give you 10 stars!!! Your zentangle was awesome, the pattern book you sent me was the absolute best and your letter was the nicest! Thank You, Thank You, and Thank You again!!!! I love it all!!! We do have a lot in common!!! How fun is that?!?!?! Thanks so much again!! :) Christine
Comment: Laura, Thank you 1000 times for the wonderful swap. The St. Patty's ones are darling and I was thrilled with the Zen face. I am starting to research how to do the zentagles and your book will help a lot. It is really, really nice. Thank you so much. I would give you more hearts if I could. Hugs. Sue
Response: I'm so glad you like it. Thanks for being such a great swap partner :)
Comment: Laura, I love all 3 ATCs! The owl is great and what a wonderful idea to use a page from an old book! Wow, the 1000 Valentines ATC is very nice, too, love it and also the "Life" one. I can't decide which is my favorite!!! Thank you again, all 3 are beautiful!
Comment: I feel like I'm in 2nd grade with my decorated shoebox receiving all these valentines. I couldn't decided between yours and one other which was my favorite from the 20 received. Like the layering/texture of the card. And the Found Poetry! What an extra special treat. I will study how that was made and copy! Thanks for being part of the swap.
Comment: Tx - creative and cute notebook. tx for the explaination and I forgot about the garland - very sweet
Response: I guess I should have marked that better! The wrapped garland and the notebook are the two handmade goodies for Valentine's Day! The ATC is an extra, including my favorite poem about feeding the birds in the middle of February :) Happy Valentine's Day!
Comment: Thank you for the great Zentangle pattern book! And for the extra pages for my own tangles. I loved it. The "Explore" banner was amazing also. If I could, I'd give you a million hearts!
Comment: Thanks, Laura, for the ATC and Zine. I just learned to cut and fold paper that way and you sent my first Zine! I like the way you explained Found Poetry and Serendipity....I'm going to make some myself! Thanks for the inspiration!
Response: Thanks! I make zines all the time with my fourth grade students, I'm glad you like it :) Happy swapping!

These are really creative, and each of them are worthy of a five and a heart. Thank you so much! And thank you also for the AWESOME banner--I don't have many Halloween decorations since I'm the only one in the house who likes the holiday, but the fall banner is perfect. You rule!!

Comment: I â™¥loveâ™¥ the ATCs you sent, especially the one that says "Bee yourself, everyone else is taken"... I may have to use that quote in an art journal. The extras will come in very handy too. Many Thanks!!! â™¥
Comment: I enjoyed both of your creative and well-designed zines! My daughters and I are going to the farmer's market on Tuesday morning. I'm going to show them your zine about the things you saw at the flea market before we go and challenge them to make one at home to remember their experience.
Comment: Oh Laura! You are such an inspiration. I adore the mini zines that you have made, and I will treasure them. I really like your style, and positive spin I can guess that you love life, and that is so good! Thank you very much. Blessings, Celia
Response: You are so kind, I'm glad you like the zines :)
Comment: These cards are adorable! I like that I can read bits of the sentences underneath the drawings and think you found the perfect balance between covering up the words and showing your art work. Thanks for these lovely additions to my collection!
Comment: WOW!! I wish I could give you 100 hearts for this swap!! LUV the ATC and it's the first zine I've ever gotten. What a wonderful way to get to know a little bit about you. I'll treasure this one!
