What an awesome surprise to receive your presents. I absolutely love the mini rabbit, cupcake and dish. They are so wonderful! And thank you for the Pompurin mechanical pencil and Kawaii memos. Amanda, you are so very thoughtful!

Hey.. this is kinda random, but I totally remember you from postcardx back in the day! This is Carolyn C. from Los Angeles. If you're interested in writing or doing a private swap on here, let me know. It would be cool to hear from you. =)

squince on May 23, 2014:

Thank you for the postcard, darling! LOVE the kitty cat card AND the stickers! <3 <3 <3 Let me know if you ever want to swap again!

Oh gurlfriend you need some colour:)

Im your partner for the Cat swap:))))))

Goldfoxxe on Jul 25, 2011:


I am glad you loved your panda box! And I agree, we should swap again soon : ) I've got copies of the singular issue of my zine floating around somewhere which I wanted to send you, but I have no idea where I put the extras!

madmadge on Aug 1, 2010:

I love your zine. I have been thinking that it would be nice to have photoshop. I collaged mine and then color scanned it. I have received one zine so far, from comfits actually. Looking forward to seeing what techniques the others use. That was part of my motivation for doing the swap. To get new ideas!

comfits on Jul 24, 2010:

Okay...this is some crazy stuff!!! Two years ago (pretty much exactly!...July 23) we did our zine trade on etsy. I signed up to Swap-bot on the 17 and 5 days later...you signed up! Then...I ended up getting you as a partner for the Zine Swap on here. Amazingly, you remembered me & thankfully I didn't send you the same zine from 2 years ago. As many of us crafty folk as there are here on the magical interweb...it's still a small, rad world :]
