Comment: Thanks for the wonderful selection of sticker flakes and all the extras. And I love your envelope. I am happy to learn that those little brown bags are more than sturdy enough to travel via USPS.
Response: <3<3<3 Manders! Thank you for the rating. I'm so happy to run into you on Swap-Bot again. You were one of the fiiiirst people I ever swapped with on here. I remembered! <3
Comment: Thank you for the extra big selection of extra goodies! I'm really impressed with your zine and the quality of your prints! I'm sorry to hear you've been so stressed, it sounds though like you might be through to the other side hopefully now that it's being officially dealt with. I hope so anyway! Thanks again for everything x
Response: Yes! & thank you for your lovely message. I feel so happy we were partnered up. <3
Comment: Thanks for your wonderful package. I had completely forgotten about this swap, so it was a nice little surprise waiting for me in my mailbox when I got home from vacation. Thanks for all the little extras that you put in. They are adorable. You are a wonderful artist!
Response: (;_;) This comment came on a very rough morning. I totally messed up & stressed out! & I learned from it. Thank you for the kind words.
Comment: Lani, Thank you so much for the lovely decorated envie, adorable memos, and amazing extras that I absolutely love! We have similar taste in memos as I had a few of the same but the more the merrier ;) thank you again :)!!

Comment: Thank you for the awesome zine and the little extras! :D I love this zine's premise but it's going to be difficult for me to actually chop it up and share! LOL! Thank you for participating in my swap; hope to see you in July's!
Response: Thanks for hosting such a fun swap!! I enjoyed myself sooo much. & thank you for the kind feedback. I felt really happy reading it. xD Thanks for the invite, I just joined it. Stoked!
Comment: What a great idea for your zine! But I must admit I'm conflicted. Part of me wahts to cut it up to share, and part of me wants to keep it whole to admire. What a dilemma! Thanks for the extras!
Response: ***blush!!!*** (>u<) Thank you for the kind feedback. I'm really happy that is the kind of dilemma you have! haha XO
Comment: wow! There's no reason to be shy to show your artwork, it's all really lovely! I like your cute pandas, and the clever idea of using Bender to say Please Do Not Bend! The '+ more' part was totally adorable, I love the soy milk panda artistamp you made :) Thank you for everything! P.S. Here is my Flickr, there isn't much on it yet, sorry! http://www.flickr.com/photos/92931086@N07/

Comment: Aw, Thank you! Your package DID make me feel like a winner! I absolutely LOVE the Monokuro Boo Sticker Flakes!!! The envelope was decorated so pretty and everything was packaged so nicely, it made me feel like I was opening gifts! I love all the extras, especially the tear out memos. They are really cute! thanks for all the great cuteness and extra <3's for you! Id love to do a private swap with you sometime!!! Msg me! Oh, the stamps on the package are wonderful too! Thank you for spending the extra time, to really make my day. You, my dear, are a Darling swapper! <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: YeeeahhhhhYAAAAAAY!!! xD Phew! I am so happy to read this feedback! haha Thanks, Bizzles. I get so worried about mailing off memo sheets--like "PLEASE do not be bent or watered or lost!" Thank you for letting me know they arrived safely with such a sweet rating. I'd love to do a private swap some day! I don't know what I have that I didn't just send to you, though. LOL xD Those mixed memo grabbies really get me!
Comment: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!? :D What a great package!!! I was JUST thinking about how I wanted some new Kutusita Nyanko lettersets, and these ones are just great. Thanks so much for the memo pad too - I really think you spent too much! ;) The extras are super duper too - I will definitely use the card holder, and I've never seen those rip-apart memos before! I'll use the smaller ones on packages for my return address. Love it. :) Thank you so much! xoxoxox
Response: YAY! Mission accomplished! xD I'm so happy it hit the spot. Thank you for letting me know it arrived safely & how much you enjoyed it. I'm always happy to get you as a partner, Kate! XO
Comment: Are you trying to make me cry too?? I think by your thoughtfulness you are :-). I don't have the words to tell you how much I L❤VE your piggy artwork on the bag and coin purse ( btw, I totally needed one, and now I've got the cutest one in the world!). I love piggies so much! I wish I could collect everything with your piggies on them! (Your my new kawaii craze 😝) as soon as I got your bag, I dumped everything out of my old one and started using is right away! I even got a complement on it wanting to know where I got it, and I very proudly told them "my friend made it for me!" :). And the book you sent.... Where did you get it from?! I can't believe I've never seen this book, it's incredibly sweet and adorable! I had the best time reading it to my kids, who after it was done put on a play about it for me! So cute! :) I really can't thank you enough not only for a wonder swap but for your friendship too! Thanks lani :)
Response: Ahh, Nanette!! This comment made my day! I am so happy you enjoyed the package. I did the same with the bag you made for me, too!!! I get compliments on it regularly, & say the same thing!!! xD I feel super special carrying it. I got the book at a shop in Berkeley. There were only 2 left! I was hoping you & your kids would enjoy it. (Yay!!! Mission accomplished!) Thank you so much, Nanette <3
Comment: Ahhh! I love receiving from you Lani! Thank you so much for the sticker sack :D I actually have the Sentimental Circus one you sent but it's actually my favorite sack! I absolutely loved the extras you sent especially the Monokuro Boo and the food with faces! Do you have any more loose sets of food with faces? :D
Response: haha I KNEW IT. I don't think there's a sticker sack you don't own, unless it's 20 years old! xD I'm not sure of what I have, my stash really needs to be organized. (>_<) So glad you liked the mail & it arrived safely! You're welcome, Linda! :D
Comment: Glad to see you back on swap-bot and thanks for the great swap and letter. Please tell your daughter I think the envelope is beautiful. I give my extra plastic deco tape to a friend with two daughters, 4 & 6, and they cannot get enough of it! I love the sticker too.
Response: xD Thank you for the warm welcome & feedback. I recently saw a 30 pack of tiny tiny deco tapes with dispensers at Target for $10! It was definitely designs targeted toward an American audience. Not very kawaii. I'm pretty happy that washi & deco tape is getting popular here, though. It used to be so hard to come by! (My daughter likes to have a strip stuck on her wrist & pretend it's a bracelet. So cute!) I passed on the message & she was so happy! <3
Comment: I can't get past the pen! OMG!! SO cute!!! And the button!! SQUWEEEEEE!! Love the Milk Rabbit, and man that's a lot of stickers! Thank you SO MUCH!! I love it all! And the tag! TOO FANTASTIC!! And all kinds of caps! =D
Response: YAAAAAY! xD Victory dance! haha So fun to swap with you again, Pattie. Thanks so much for the feedback! I'm super happy you enjoyed the package!! <3
Comment: What a lovely zine! It's so cute! Thank you for the extras as well. I just love the oh so tiny tape dispenser with the oh so cute tape in it! Thank you so much! I am trying to hide the clovers from my kids right now haha!
Response: Aw, thanks so much! I was really happy reading your comment. It was fun making the clovers! haha
Comment: omg! miss lani! thanks so much for the super generous package! i love the vintage pillow case and fabric! and pouches! SOOOOO lovely! your dying is great! :)) watch your post box, youre going to get something special!
Response: Ahh, Nanette!!!! Your package was already mind blowing!!! Your sewing skills are AMAZING! I'm sooo happy you liked the package! (Creamy yellow?! Little Twin Stars! haha I tried.) Also, the cat fabric cuts I made were made with fabric paint, so it should be safe to wash. I forgot to mention that. There's no need for a 2nd package! Oh, my gosh, I can't believe it. Your pouch was stunning already. Thank you so much for your generosity & kindness!! <3
Comment: OMGGGGGG. Speechless.
I can't even tell you how much I love and am so grateful for your package! I don't even know where to start. First the packaging was SO adorable, I love double-sided wrapping paper, you'll have to tell me where you got it! hehe I was so shocked as how much you spoiled me!!!! ^.^ I love everything, really, everything. The tapes are AMAZING, I have been wanting the Sweetie Prism one for SOO long omg!!! The big memo pad is so delightful, I am so in love with it!! The mini memos pads were adorable too! My mouth dropped at the Rilakkuma towel and can keychain!!! THANK YOU! So so so cute. Really, I could list everything thing you sent and go on and on but I'll spare you a book - but thank you so much for everything, especially your handmade necklace!! So cute. Your minizines were amazing too, I am so impressed with your artwork! I love your 'complete the drawing' one especially, so creative!!! Ok that's enough for now, lol but THANK YOU AHHHH!!!!!! :DDDDD
Response: YOU?! OMG NO ME!!! LOL xD I juuuuust got your package, too! My first reaction was, "OMFG did I send enough?!! This is crazy amazing!" Seriously, I was checking my camera for pics of what I sent, but I didn't take any before send off! I'm sooo sooooooo super happy that you're happy with the package!!!! I think I got the wrapping paper from a dollar store years ago. Oh, PHEW! So happy you like the Sweetie Prism tape!!!! I wasn't totally sure, but it's one of my favorites of all time. YAYAYAY!!! I loved YOUR complete the drawing page, too!!! xD Same thoughts! Okay, I've got to run for dinner, but thank you for such a SUPER FUN swap!!! I was really, really happy to give (& receive!). You're amazing, Holly!!! <3
Comment: Thanks for everything! I LOVE Fizzy Girl!! I want the sticker sack so bad. D: Your zine is adorable too! My fave page is Mowie of course. ^_^ And you sent a mini evie. I am obssessed with mini envies..you totally fed my addiction. ;)
Response: I'm so happy you liked it! I love Fizzy Girl, too. Totally on the same page about the sticker sack! Our tastes are so similar sometimes! Thank you so much. It's a high compliment coming from you, that you liked my zine. AW! I just checked, you're not in the Kawaii Mini Envelope Swap! Definitely join the next one. It's so fun! (But hard. omg so hard for me. haha I can't find the right papers for it in my stash at ALL. Augh!)
Comment: Thank you so much Lani :D I absolutely loved the pencils you sent to me :D !!! Thank you for the lettersets and extras as well! AHH the TAREPANDA FOLDER :D thank you so much <3 ^^ I loved everything!! <3
Response: Yay! I'm really happy you liked it all. They are older/rarer pencils, so I haven't really seen anyone else with them. I was so paranoid about sending that folder! Maybe you could tell from my tri-packing it. xD
Comment: I LOVE the strawberry bow pouch you sent me! Thank you so much for it, and the FBs (I will pass them on!), the kawaii memos, and the crochet bow pin. It really made my day. (｡◕‿‿◕｡)
Response: Yay! I'm really happy you loved it! I wasn't sure when I picked it out if it could be useful, but I *always* end up using small bags for something (camera, phone, wallet, change, makeup), so I was crossing my fingers! Thanks so much for the rating! <3
Comment: I LOVE EVERYTHING~!! you made such a cute minizine. thank you for not sharing all of the pages online, it was nice to see the other pages you didn't post online. thank you for all of the very thoughtful extras too ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Response: Yay! lol Did I post too much? I'll post less spoilers in the future. Thank you for taking the time to rate & for the heart! <3
Response: Aw, I was so excited about the kawaii resin charm decorated with a bunch of tiny bows. I thought it might be right for you, since you like "kawaii." (T^T) So sad! I'm happy you liked the knitted bow. <3
Comment: OMG where to start?! Thank you SO FREAKING MUCH LANI! For the fabulous package you sent to me. OMG here's the list: LOVE the 2 Rilakkuma folders (you must be a mind reader because I collect them haha, secret obsession); Rilakkuma coin purse; organizer; notebook; stamped hedgehog bags; and the awesome kawaii Alice pins :D AHHHH SO CUTE!!! Thank you so much for my friend's stuff as well! I really appreciate the time you took to make the stamp and pins :) even though this swap was just for the sticker sheet lol. You went above and beyond. I wish I could give you more than 1 heart, you deserve lots and lots! And you note was very cute, nothing embarrassing on it at all so no worries lol

Response: Yay! It arrived safely! Thank you so much!! I wasn't sure how to fit it all into a matchbox. I think your cards are *amazing* & beautiful. I'm just beginning, but I hope I can learn from your crafts!
Comment: Wow these are so cute! I love everything! My children loved those smencils too!Your packaging is so "kawaii"!!!!! I really love it! I do not want to open them because I want to just look at them the way they are for awhile! Thank you so much this was an excellent swap! I am glad you got my name! A million hearts to you!
Response: Whaaat Oh my gosh, I was kicking myself for not having asked your wrist size before sending!!! If the aqua bracelet is too small, please let me know. I'm happy to resend.
I'm really happy to hear you & your children liked the package!! Thank you so much for your very kind comment & rating. It really made my day! <3
Comment: Yay, we meet again! Thanks for the great swap! I loved the extra kawaii memo sheets too.
Response: YAY!! Barbi!! Good to see you again. I still remember when you were the first person to volunteer/help me, so I could make FBs "for" someone other than myself. Thank you!!! <3 Thanks for taking the time to rate, too. So happy you enjoyed the extras. I hope they'll be useful.
Comment: Hello Lani! :) thank you for your patience with my rating. I loved the keychain and the pins! They're so cute. Thank you so much for the sticker sheet as well. I actually don't know of any shops in the East Bay either ;[ kawaii is pretty dead as a storefront, except maybe Japantown in SF or the kawaii shop on Geary St (it's pretty small, I passed by it before). I buy my stuff online and I'm thinking of opening a small online shop for loose and my extra stationery I purchased but have no space for haha. Let me know if you're interested? :)
Response: Hi, Linda! I uh... wouldn't say I was patient. I completely forgot about it. haha :) So I really appreciate your taking the time to rate! Thank you so much!! I'd definitely be interested. There are some hard to find designs I've been hoping for. Thanks for letting me know!! <3 Happy holidays to you & yours!
Comment: Thanks for your comment!
I'm so glad yo know you are into vintage stuff & the beatles as I do!
I feel the same about getting 60's clothes however for my prom my grandma made me a 60's dress and since I do silkscreen printing I printed a bunch of campbell's soup cans into it! I should take a pic of that... anyways thanks so much ;D
Response: Heck yeahhhh!!! I love all of the Beatles!!! Paul, Ringo, George, & John.... It's hard to pick just one! Your grandmother sounds so RAD!!!! Photos would be great!! xD Thanks to you, too, for taking the time to rate! <3
Comment: thank you for the letter and stuff!!!! i absolutely love your handwriting!!!
Response: Yay!! Glad it all arrived safely. Thank you!! haha I'll let you in on my secret. My handwriting is turd with ballpoint pens, but with LE PEN, it's super neat! xD I love that pen brand!! It's my absolute favorite.
Comment: Thank-you so much for the wonderful package! Everything was so perfect! I'm sending out a couple of the post cards to friends tonight, and I already made some magnets with the little cards that you printed off! :D
Response: Wow, wow, YAY!!!! :D That is so great to hear! I'm really happy that you're enjoying it & using it already!!! <3 Thank you for the rating. I wish I'd taken my time in sending it out, so I could have written a letter or added much more. Agh! I got way too excited & just *had* to mail it off!
Comment: I loved the little note you included. thank you for the compliment, im glad you like my website!!
Response: Thank you for the rating!! I'm so sorry the tile stickers weren't the best choice for you. (I totally peeked at your profile again!!! Ahh!) Right now, they are my favorite type of stickers. They pop nicely on paper! :) I hope you'll be able to find a use for them, or pass them on. All the best!
Comment: Oh my goodness! Your comment and your message were awesome! We sound like twins separated at birth, seriously. Would LOVE to be your penpal, will write back to your message as soon as I get some time. Thank you so much again! <3
Response: Yaaay, Lily!!! Really?! I don't think I'm as much of a beacon of light as you are!! I'm more like a little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. HAHAHA (Like that even makes sense.) I was really blown away & inspired by you!!! I'm so happy you're accepting!! Write any time. Thank YOU! <3
Comment: Mari loved the picture of the horse. I got through college on awesome family support from my mom and grandma. It is definately possible.
Response: Thanks so much, Amanda & Mari! Seriously... I don't know what I'd do without my parents right now! After I posted the comment & saw that the photo got cut off, I was so embarrassed!!! xD "Ahh! It's just a horse's butt?!!" Sorry about that. ;)
Comment: YAY! The second package arrived safely today! Your FBs are so beautiful <3 Thankyou so much for being so commited to this swap, and the deco notes made me smile! I hope you've given the post office a bit of grief for them losing the first parcel! I cannot wait to pass these on! :D
Response: PHEW!! hahaha I don't know what I'd do if it didn't show up this time! I'm all wiped out of FBs & LBs from my last swap. (*imagining myself slaving away into the night* Noooo!) Thank you so much for the generous rating & comment. I'm really happy it brought cheer your way!! xD Oh, the post office... such a love/hate relationship!
Comment: Hooray! Thankyou very much Lani for the really wonderful Witch/Red Riding Hood key chain and the lovely letter. I am still ever hopeful of receiving the Ghost keychain too. Going on over to send you a PM :)
Response: Hi, Carol! Yaaay! I'm so glad that one of them arrived! You know, *two* pieces of mail went missing, from the batch of 4 that I mailed at that time. Stinky! I hope they just got misplaced in the snail mail abyss & the ghost keychain will arrive some day. I'm sorry that the first package hasn't arrived. Thank you so much for the generous rating. <3 It was my pleasure to be your partner!!! :D
Comment: Your FBs are really cute! (I like how you did the glitter). Thank you for the little extras and the deco. I liked your envelope too. I'll be sending everything on really soon.
Response: Thanks, Sarah! I enjoyed your profile & really like to be Earth-friendly, too. I do ponder about putting tape on the covers of FBs. (Not quite biodegradable, right?) Maybe I'll try glue or mod podge! :)
