Comment: Lori, thank you so much for the great package, it's no problem that it was late. I have to step back from swapping for now too, hopefully our paths will cross in the future. I really liked your collage!
Response: I'm thrilled you liked it! Yes, may we swap again one day :)
Comment: ♥♥♥Love this awesome envelope--you are super talented and everything you included is so very perfect for me! I will use everything :) No worries about it being late, I understand life happens and it's sweet you want to make it up to me but you don't have to. Very awesome mail art and it made my day--heck, it made my week!
Response: Thank you thank you! It does my heart good! But I'm still sending the other thing. IOU!!
Comment: Indeed, this package was amazing! I absolutely loved the rolos (yes, I got two!), and the little goodies that you included were very thoughtful and lovely! Thank you for making my day! hugs, teresa
Comment: Love Love Love what you created. And the extras are outstanding. Can't wait to use them in my creations. Hope all is better with you and continue to be that way. Your smile can have a dominoe effect.....so let your sunshine thru. Your friend Barbara - bearnbabs

Trisket, do you have anything left in your house????? I LOVE the wee things and the Snow White and the ribbons, and the wallpaper,AND THE CARD CASE!! (btw you are so in trouble!) I will cherish your art and put it in my treasures box. Everything made my day! Thank you!!!
Response: It didn't make a dent on my load of crap. I thought of a million things I should'a sent after I mailed it (and it still wouldn't have made a dent). What a fun swap that was that you made!
Comment: Hi Lori, whooooooot was I happy to have you as a partner! I love the extras and I looooove the rolo, it's so authentically vintage, I like your taste!
Maybe we can do a private swao sometime.
DId you see the EARSI swap??? Please check if you didnt.. See ya!
Response: Oh thank you for the invite! Now that's just the bestest complement ever!
Comment: Fantastic job! Long letter, very detailed and creative, and omg the paper and envelope were museum-quality - they looked like they were a hundred years old! Was that a computer font, or typewriter? Great letter! Tks!
Response: Computer font from Dafont.com lots 'o free fonts! Thank you for the lovely comment!
Comment: Hello Lori,
Thank you for the early birthday greeting on the "ATC on a Postcard" Swap. I enjoy the varied mediums or tools you use to enhance the ATC. I look forward to adding it to ATC Collection.
Response: you're welcome Barb, I'm so glad you liked it!
Comment: Wow - extremely creepy baby pic! And the letter was so awesome! Gave me chills and my husband didn't want to read it before bed (ha, I made him anyway). Fantastic job, wish I could give you a 100 hearts!!
Response: OMG! This made me laugh!!!! Poor hubby, did he have nightmares? lol!
Comment: You just spoiled me!! First thank you for sending 2 cards, I absolutely LOVE them both (we have same likeing in saints) Also thank you so much for the little extra gifts!! The charms and tags,...you are so sweet, you went so far above and beyond to make my day!! I will always have these 2 cards, they found a perfect home!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the artistically drawn zentangle sugar skull. I love hand drawn cards, and I really like the 3rd eye and the decorated envie with the eye. Eyeballs are one of my fav things! You did a really nice intricate job and it so well drawn. I hope to swap with you again!
Response: Thank you for such nice words! I didn't know about your love for eyes. That's just cool!
Comment: Oh Lori! Those little gel cap charms are wonderful! How on earth did you get the little spiral twist wire INSIDE? Very cute all of them! I think the Angel and that beautiful vintage crystal are going to find a home on my Christmas tree :) All the extra goodies, too! What a wonderful package! You made my day. Thank you, I'll watch for you in upcoming charm swaps ;-) PS: 3 stars!
Response: Thank you for the nice things you said... made me smile : )
Comment: Hi Lauri! Thanks so much for the card. Your story is awesome! The zombies heard about my mailing habits? That's great stuff!! I'd send help if I could ... but my postman is a zombie too!
Response: Damn! The zombies already made it to you! We're still holding out, but yes, my relationship with the postman is very sketchy. He leaves my mail and waits for me to come out. I run as fast as I can to keep from getting caught!
Comment: This card is GORGEOUS. and thanks again for the bonus charms. I got this last week and it's been in my "to do" pile. Getting your other great envelope today got me off my butt to rate you for both. Thanks for being such a great swap partner.
Response: I'm so glad you like it! No worries, happens to the best of us.... like me responding : )
Comment: Lori- got your awesome swap today! First of all, the "Hollywood Address" card is great - I really love it. And then you put together such a lovely package, the cool envelope, the beautiful handmade card, the litte metal charms in the wee envelopes. You are the BEST. I am truly appreciative - thanks! -Karen
Comment: Your ATC was just stunning - such a lot of work in it and so tactile. Thank you too for the little keys - can't wait to use them. I passed on your message to Ollie from Dollie - my husband gave me 'a look' LOL. Would love to do a private ATC swap if you are interested. Looks like we have similar tastes in our art work.
Comment: Thanks Lori for the lovely envelope and the very nice letter. And those tiny envelopes are really cute, I love the surprises inside too! This was such a surprise in my mailbox, I wish I could give you alot more hearts!
I never knew that the history lessons in the USA are so differend from ours, we all learn about Anne Frank in grammar school. I think the USA soldiers did a hell of a job back then......but politics is a complete differend story. So , I agree with you, not so long ago in eastern europe, and now in alot of African and Arabic countries there's alot of the same thing going on, it sad that men never seem to learn from History.....
Response: I'm so glad you liked the envie and stuff. Thank you for writing back about it here. I sometimes I feel a bit alone over here about those things because nobody talks about it. It's so far removed people feel it doesn't effect them and never will. I think it's a big mistake to not learn all we can from it. Every day I still feel astonished that it was real, that it happened. And I still cry.
Comment: Lori these envelopes are THE. BEST. EVER. I want to show everybody and keep them forever. You are so talented and they are perfect for me! I do have family and friends who would appreciate them as much as you and I do but I will be sad to see them go, lol. Very cool! Hope we can swap again in the very near future.
Response: That's so funny, I want to keep the envelopes I was sent by my partner too! I'm greedy about sending them away!
I hope we swap again!
Comment: Thank you SOSOSOSO much Lori for my extra special envie. I went to visit my mom in a neighbouring town and opened it there, and we all enjoyed it so much, your thoughfulness in the packaging of the goodies and attention to detail! the knickers got us all laughing. Thanks a mil :) Marchy
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome package! Your compliments on my profile made me feel really great! I was just thinking the other day that my profile might be a little blah, but you made me feel a lot better about it! I'm sure those lovely little feathers will make it onto my fairies soon! I LOVE the color in them. Oh and I guess I should thank you for what the original swap was for :) Thanks for the lovely napkins. They'll be making their way into chunky books, or atcs soon! HAPPY 2011! Wishing you a great year and a lot of fun, creative swapping!
Response: this makes me smile. thanks, needed that!
Comment: ♥♥♥AMAZING zentangle and wonderful extras♥♥♥ Thanks SOOOO MuCh!!! I will lovingly use all the fun things you sent. I'm putting your zentangle on my art wall of fame in my art room too, beautiful!
Response: Thank you for such an honor! I'm really happy about this!
Comment: Hi Lori!
I know i should not say this in a public message but your hand drawn card is one of my favorites and your note was like iceing on a wonderful cake! I was inspired with so many ideas from your card and that gorgeous vellum! Yes, i called vellum gorgeous! The stamps were fantastic, and so unexpected, i loved it all. I hope you received an incredible package like mine, if not let me know and i will definately make it up to you!
Response: Isn't vellum gorgeous! So glad you like (and got inspiration from) my memento mori! It's great coming from you because I consider you an expert in that realm! You made my day!
Comment: Thank you Lori for the atc! The peach looks good enough to eat, such wonderful, bright colours!! Thank you for the stamps, I love them and I don't have any of them yet:D And finally thank you so much for your beautiful letter in the adorable dog card he he so cute!!
Comment: I want to kiss the SB partner assignment gods. The water color painting you've created for me is beyond the word fantabulouastic~
I am beyond thrilled to have had you for my partner! YOU ROCK! I give you a standing ovation for your incredible art work.
Response: I can't tell you how much your comment makes my heart smile!! You really just made my day! I'm so glad you like ol' garg and he has home where he's loved!
Comment: Thank you so much for the most wonderful goat ATCs! I love your style and these are such a great addition to my collection. THEN, there is the wonderful package of goodness you included!! Wow, goatee things, blues and greens, tea, beautiful feathers, doodled envie, and that horoscope page is just WILD! That March 7th page is SO accurate to describe me, where on earth did you get that? Thank you so, so much for making my day. I love how much we have in common and I would love to penpal or swap with you more. MMM, lemonade is refreshing :o) wink
Response: I think I've found another soul sister! Thank you for the lovely comments : )
Comment: Thank you for the ATC. It is wonderful. You know I do not know the history behind my street name. I have been meaning to do research on it but I just have not had the time. There are a lot of street names that are on the darker side here. Also, thank you for the other goodies, the playing cards are awesome. :-)
Response: glad you liked 'em! Let me know what you find out about your neighborhood street names, it's very interesting.
Comment: I absolutely love the ATCs you sent of Elvis - he looks like a right character, and if your letter is anything to go by, he most certainly is one!!! They're absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much. Give the King a fuss a for me :o)
Response: I just love the way you talk! So glad you liked them, and Elvis always welcomes new admirers!
Comment: Hi Lori! Wow thanks so much for the amazing ATC's! I love the Buddah and I love the Crows! What a treat!
Thanks for the nice letter. I grew up in Klamath Falls - NOT a progressive town! I would suggest Ashland Or. It is a great little town and is very Artsy! Also has a college in it. I love it there. I now live in Moscow, Idaho and love it here also. It is the most diverse and liberal town in the Sate of Idaho! We like it. I own a scrapbook store in Pullman, Wa that is just 10 mins. away from my house.
Anyway, so nice to trade with you. Feel free to email me anytime to chat more!
Response: Ashland sounds perfect! Idaho is very nice, I went to school there.
Comment: Hi Lori! I received your wonderful Frida ATCs today and I was quite impressed! You sent me two of them when the requirement was only one! That was really so special of you to do that! And I enjoyed the cat face, it's a neat perspective. I also enjoyed your letter and I don't know why you think you're not good enough, but I would love to do private trades with you, anytime! Let me know when you're ready to do one, I love swapping! Hugs!
P.S. If I could give more than one heart, I would have! :))
Response: Thank You for the great feedback! Let's chat : )
Comment: OMG (sorry for lame chat speak lol, I spend too much time talking to teenagers) I LOVE the beautiful ATC you sent me! I love your style, you're very talented! And the colors! Thank you thank you thank you! XD
Ooh and thanks for the cool blanks to paint on, I'll definitely use them! <3 A thousand hearts to you!
Response: I love your enthusiasm! Thanks for the super cool comment!
Comment: OMGosh! Thanx Lori. I am just thrilled to finally get an ATC (or 3!) that just Rocks my Boat! Sending you a letter and a sample or 2 back next week! Hope we can be regular swappers! I'd love to see your acrylic works!!! Love, Loved them!!! I'm so inspired, Thanx!
Comment: This is absolutely AWESOME! Thank you so much for sending such great art and then putting a bit of green in it because of me! I also love the recycled vinyl. I can't wait to use it. THANK YOU!
Comment: Ah Ha! I found you! Thanks for the great cards and the package of extra collage pieces, everything is great. It took quite a bit of work to figure out which swap this was for, it would be great if you'd write that on the envelope and somewhere on the swapstuff. Thanks again, great swap!
Response: thanks for the heads-up! I noticed that swaps being sent to me have the swap name on the envelope, etc, and it's nice to have. Sorry to have made it tough on you...you were one of my first swaps : ) thanks for the patience!
Comment: Oh wow!! I love the ATC you sent so much!! It's absolutely beautiful!! In addition to birds, I really enjoy insects, so the Owl Fly was a perfect choice! I'm just so impressed with your talent. Thank you so much!! Also, hooray for a fellow bird person!! <3
Response: insects too? how cool is that?! I'm so glad you liked it!
Comment: OMG you are a fantastically gifted artist and writer! I loved everything about my swap with you, the painting is amazing and will be placed on the "look at this cool stuff shelf" I have for really cool stuff. I adore your discerning goddess, who rejects BS and laughs at the absurd. We are soul sistas! I love her in deed! Thank you fellow goddess!
Response: thank you goddessfox for the absolutely cool comments! made me smile ear to ear. I thought we were soul sisters too!
Comment: Yous is my first card for this swap. It took me a whole day to get all of mine done, and I had my cards almost all ready, except putting on a little extras on them. Sooo glad to get them done. Thank you for the lovely hand painted frog and the nice atc paper. Haven't worked with vinyl before, should be interesting.
Response: so glad you liked the frog! I saw it on your profile and figured it was a good bet. The vinyl is pretty fun, just something for a change : )
