Comment: Whoa...this is the best piece of mail I have ever received. First, let me say the envelope was beautiful (I used a razor to open it so I wouldn't destroy it). Second, the Zentangle ATC is amazing...I love the texture, what kind of paper did you use? Third, the extra tangles ROCK! Fourth, cute animal stickers...yay! Fifth, mini-book...way cool, I have never seen one before. Thank you for introducing me to this. Sixth, paper, paper, and more paper...ah, I'm in heaven. You have really gone above and beyond...thank you so much for the ATC and all of the goodies. I need to throw the envelope up on my Flickr (minus our names and addresses)...if you don't mind.
Response: I'm so very happy you liked it! I had a blast creating it for you. The paper on the ATC is cheap-o paper for acrylic painting (I actually wanted to buy watercolor and the cover said it was good for both) so it does have a weird texture. I am honored you'd want to put up the envelope on your Flickr, please do. I love the minibooks, they are fun to make 'things I like about you' books to give to loved ones, or even mini albums. I thought your profile was great and empathized with the 'I have a paper problem' sentiment. :)
Comment: Thank you for your lovely mail art and tea bags, chocolate bar!! I loved them :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! You are my first envelope art swap partner and I was afraid I hadn't decorated the envelope enough. I was also worried the chocolate might have gotten smashed or melted. Thanks so much for your kind <3! :)
Comment: loved the note and the lovely picture. what a view! the "i" was so good ... very elegant...thanks so much...i am practicing now on making my own envelope thanks for the inspiration...

Comment: I LOVE the 'folder' you made!! That is so cool and the letters are amazing!! Thank you!! :)
Response: Thanks so much for the Heart! I'm so glad you like the folder and the letters. Mini books are so much fun and would you believe the pages are just one 12x12 cleverly folded and cut? Here's instructions for something similar if you want to try it out if you didn't already know about it: http://www.creativelittlestars.com/2011/02/my-son-showed-me-how-to-make-mini-book.html. Thanks also for setting up our awesome private tangle :)
