Comment: ¡Hey chavala! ¡Qué pasada de paquete! ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡Me encanta!!!!!!!!! ^_^ El zine es GENIAL (¡qué envidia me da esa portada serigrafiada ... hace mucho que no hago serigrafías -y litografías ni te cuento...-) tus pegatinas son fabulosas (¡¡¡¡aaaay!!!! me encanta la de la personita sobre el gatito =_) ) y el mini cómic de tu chico me ha hecho mucha gracia =D ¿Quieres mandar me un mensaje con tu dirección y te mando el zine que yo hice? (Está en un inglés terroífico pero bueno... xD)
Response: Genial !! De hecho terminé la zine tarde por que quería que quedara muy bien ! Y la serigrafía fue de lo más casera, hice el positivo con un plumón y acetato, lo que le dio un toque más hecho a mano. Y sí, estaría genial leer tu zine ! Y qué bueno que te gustaron las estampas, escogí tamaños surtidos. Saludos !!
Comment: Cool postcard! Thank you! Was there a reason you put it in an envelope though? It doesn't matter to me, just wondered! From looking at your profile I know that the stickers of the postcard are you illustrations - awesome!
Response: Yes, the ladies at the post office told me that i had to use an envelope, because many times the postcards got lost, bended or broken. So i was not going to take the risk and that it never arrived ! Also one time i sent a steampunk necklace just in a box with a little piece of tape, and the box arrived . . . without the necklace. So that's why i took the first envelope i found (a really girly and pink) But the postcard is decorated like if it was sent without envelope, the stamp is one of the revolution special editions ! Glad you like it, and i look forward to more polaroid postcards swaps. .Cometa
Comment: Thanks for hosting this swap - it really made me stop and think about all the 'things' I've accumulated over the years.
I loved what you wrote, and the fact that you placed yourself in the photo - oh, and cool nail-varnish too!
Response: Yes, there are many things that store many moments ! But in emergency its better to save life first. And the nail polish is a light green and i covered half of the nail with tape and painted the rest with turquoise.
Thanks for participating in my swap. Cometa
Comment: ZOMG THANK YOU!!! I love all the stickers & drawings and I can't wait to listen to the CD! Thank you!!!
Response: Glad you like it, i really wanted to participate in this swap the first time, but i couldnt. SO this time i prepared some cool things and the CD with really good music, its not that punk, but it has some punk style. Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: Hey! I have received your CD today! Thank you very much! Plastic box of it was broken but I changed it and now everything is more than fine ;). I was amazed that my friend know all bands you have sent. I hope to have more swaps with you in the future!
Response: Oh wow ! I'm also surprised, they are really good bands, the CD of Muni/Multi of Azul Violeta is now very difficult to get. Also your plastic case was broken, but the CD was ok ! I wrapped it and used a box, but glad it protected the CD, at least. I hope you enjoy the music. Cheers !
Comment: OOOOhhhh wow! Thank you so much for the great bands and the new inspiration. I already love love love Detektivbyrån. The live video is incredible. Crazy. Because of the use of the accordeon it reminds me a bit of a grotesque version of the soundtrack of "Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain". Battles isn´t the music I´d listen to all day, but the video for "Ice cream" is art.
And -if it´s allowed to make some random advertisement for a thing you prabably might like- Three Trapped Tigers reminds me of a flash game I used to play but that is now lost in the depths of the world wide web. Instead I´d recommend this small gem: http://armorgames.com/play/6244/every-day-the-same-dream
Response: Oh yes, i really like how Detektivbyrån plays their instruments, specially that strage electromagnetic thing with no strings. Its really simmilar of Yann Tiersen in the Amelie soundtrack, they have european influences. I also think the video of Ice Cream of Battles is amazing ! I like the combined use of images to recreate one concept. And the game was interesting to play and to discover everything. The music was intriguing. Thanks so much for participating in my swap. Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: I do not understand much spanish but loved the beat and it took me a while to figure out which one you were than I got an email to confirm that I was right
Response: Oh sorry ! I prepared the plaiylist like 3 days before the swap, and i realized i forgot my username after i sent it. I like music of other languages, many time you can understand some things with the sounds and realize later with the lyrics that it was something simmilar, Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: Excellent! It's amazing - THANK YOU/GRACIAS! :) I'm looking forward to completing this. A perfect summer project.
(p.s. The tape peeled off on the bottom by the time it arrived today; I don't think you had anything inside the pages, but I thought I'd mention it in case there was.)
Response: Nice ¡¡ Glad you liked it because i liked it so much ! There was nothing inside that could fell down, so dont worry. I sent it like that because i wanted it to start wrecking since the post. Send me photos when you finish it! Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: Dear Paulina!
I just received the most lovely pack from You, which I ever get in a swap!!! Thank You for all of these unigue items, abd for the special, lovely letter to me! I would keep in touch with you, as a penfriend if You don't mind, pleade let me introduce myself in a letter, ask about many-many things, and show my country's culture, which I would ask about Mexico too! :)
Response: Yes ¡ It would be cool to be pals ! It was so fun to choose and decorate all mori style. And i wanted to give you items made in Mexico, like the things a mori girls would choose in her visit to Mexico. Looking forward to make some more swpas together ! Cheers. Cometa
Comment: I love the panties haha! Purple <3 And all the extras, thank you so much! :D
Response: Haha ¡¡ It was difficult to make a choice, because you told you work in a sexy shop and i think you could find "sexy" stuff right there. . . But in my opinion its more attractive the simple cotton and a bright color like purple !! Ohh YES ! . Glad you like everything, and that zine is short but amazing ! Thanks for entering to this swap, it was interesting to see your profile and blog. Cheers! . Cometa
Comment: Wow! Everything is so cool! Thanks for sending the mini-mag about local street art (i love seeing this stuff from other parts of the world). I turned the yoshi into a magnet to decorate my too plain fridge and your stickers are ah~mazing! :D ... I hope my end of the swap reaches you safely too. =x
Response: Ohhh that strange mag is so cool ! I also took some photos with my cellphone, but they are so crappy ! So i prefered to but the magazine (I can only get it in mexico city, so you were lucky i went on vacations to there.) And its good idea to make magnets with the figures, hmm most young people here use them as necklaces. I;ll tell you when your swap arrives, sometimes they take time in the customs ! Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: Got your package today, so awsome!! I love the drawing you sent (eee fishies!) and the stickers are al sooo cute!! My favourite is the little topless girl hehehe.
Love the zines, your artwork is so pretty. And the envelope was so nicely decorated! I cant wait to try the candy. Thank you so much, this is a lovely package <3
Response: Yay ! Glad you liked everything. I'm trying to draw topless girls, haha ! Now i like tribal characters a lot, so they have to be like that ! . I would like to swap again with you ! And enjoy the candy !! Cheers ! .Cometa

Comment: Thank you soooo much Cometa! LOVE everything! The bag, the scarf, wore the necklace today, just everything:) Thanks so much! Would love to swap again with you! <3<3

Comment: Greetings! I received your *wonderful* package today with the tote and treat in it! I absolutely love the adorable tote bag that your mom made - and pink is one of my favorite colors, so I appreciate that you sent me something I will surely use! I also LOVE the postcards you sent, as I am just getting into World Heritage Site Postcard collecting, these will be my first postcards to add to that collection! Everything was wrapped up so nicely, too. I liked your artwork on the outside of the package! :) It made it for a fun and interesting package to receive and to open! Cheers!
Response: Yay ¡¡ Glad you liked it, my mom and i are very ecologist so we are always making reusable bags. Also i liked that postcards ! the photos are so beautiful . Thanks for the rating. Cheers . Cometa
Comment: Hi Cometa! Thank you SO MUCH for the great buttons and the awesome stickers! I loved the sticker of one of your characters! Can I buy more? Buena Suerte!
Response: Yay !! Glad you liked them, i really like big pins, and specially that one of fruits. And by now i dont sell the stickers . . but we can make a private swap and i can send you some more ! Thanks for the rating. .Cometa
Comment: Thank you so much for the second part of the swap! I loved the package and especially the necklace is so gorgeous, I'll wear it right tomorrow. You were a wonderful partner and it was so good, that we could communicate! Thank you very much! I'm absolutely happy :)
Response: Yay !!
Sorry, it was my fault for not reading that part of the instructions. Glad you liked all ! i looked for 100% mexican products, so you can know a bit about my country. Thanks for being comprehensive with me, and for the rating ! Cheers ! .Cometa
Response: Thanks to you for sharing your creations, they really inspire me to learn to do my own clothes and bags. You are very talented, and your work has a lot of quality and coolness !! Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: Hey.. i just opened your package last night.. it was really so much fun going through it and you put a whole lot of effort into choosing things.. The candy mold blew me totally away, must say.. I couldnt believe my eyes.. Thanks sooooo much!
Response: Yay !! Glad you like it, i want to see what you can do with all that beads, and specially the coral beads. My mom gave them to me, but i really dont know what to do with them, so i preferred to share them with you instead of having them in a box. Also i thought it was a goog idea that candy mold, so you can do crazy candy experiments, yay! Thanks for the rating, Cheers¡ .Cometa
Comment: Received my package today! Wow...it took a month and a day to get here! That is just crazy...I could have drove there and back 10 times! Anyways...glad it arrived and I thank you for everything you sent!! LOVE the kitty stamp and I can't wait to try the teas. Hope to swap again with you soon!!
Response: Oh yes I know !! I sent something to Acapulco, like 4-5 hours from here and it also took one month and one day !!! And a candy pack to Lithuania was 3 months !! And some stickers someone sent me from Chile spent 3 months to arrive here. And by the other side, someone sent me something from japan and it was here one week later. Haha i dont understand. But glad you liked everything ! It was fun to choose and pack the items ¡ almost half an hour to pack the envelope (here in Mexico, that dont allow us to use tape) so i used lots of adhesive paper. Thanks for the rating, Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: It finally arrived! :-) Love the coins and love the little coin purse! And the cute couple you mailed along with everything...they are awesome! Your art is funky and gorgeous. I am just loving these little people. ;-) Thank you!
Response: Glad you like it ! Those coins are very old !! , also it is a traditional pattern coin purse, with brilliant colors as many mexican items. Also i like a lot to draw, specially couples with simmilar personality and clothing. I'm happy you liked the pack. Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: thank you so much for all of your kind comments! i love making things & photography is my passion, so it is so nice to know that i am making others smile with my work! thanks so much & happy swapping! :)
Response: Yes !! I've added you as flickr friend, to keep looking to your photograpies. Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: This was such a funny, sweet little parcel! The little handmade cushion was so cute, and it was touching that you made it for this swap - thank you! I also loved the adorable little glass fruits that fit on the little plate. The bird puzzle was funny ~ after I pulled it from the package it kept falling apart whenever I tried standing it up (but I finally got there). Overall it was an interesting package - one you'd clearly put thought and care into, and that showed. Thanks for such a nice swap! :)
Response: Wow !!!! I really like that you liked it. I like to make dolls and simmilar things, so i made the cushion. The fruits were very cute, i liked them since i saw them, and the bird puzzle is from a store that makes that kind of puzzles, my mom and I used to go there when we needed a gift, because they have very special puzzle stuff. Thank you so much for the rating, it will be an honor to trade with you in the future. Cheers ! .Cometa
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your letter! Those stickers are amazing! I can't wait to write back! Thank you! :)
Response: Glad you like it ! i was going to decorate it, but i realized that i had to send them the next day, so i didnt had time to make a drawing. But i promise to make some mail art next time ! Thank you and Cheers from Mexico ! .Cometa
