ok Here's a "rad" snapple fact - flamingos can only eat with their heads upside down. Hope that's rad enough! Thanks for the great offer.

Victoria

If I had to put something in a rad kit like that, I would definitely include penguin paperclips (you can see some here: http://www.jetpens.com/Midori-D-Clip-Paper-Clips-Original-Series-Penguin-Box-of-30/pd/5199)! They have all sorts of animal shapes you can buy, but penguins are definitely my favorite :)

Sarah

You've probably already seen it, but ..http://thingsorganizedneatly.tumblr.com A great tumblr that makes my nerdy design/need to be organized heart all a-flutter. My favorite are, of course, the ones featuring office and writing supplies. I can literally waste hours looking at these. =)

The League of Extraordinary Penpals is quite rad: http://www.extraordinarypenpals.com/

I emailed you about this last night, but I'm still kind of obsessed with it: http://www.sheknows.com/living/articles/965787/diy-cake-postcard-tutorial

Definitely RAD!

We think our July competition to win some note cards is pretty rad and it would be SUPER rad if one of you won! http://karenzapaperie.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/our-sensationally-pretty-july-giveaway.html

I'd love to win any RAD gift. Put my name in the hat, Please.

Love the ingenious bag closure. How clever some people are! Very RAD.

I love writing with dip pens and colored ink. I slows my writing down and I have time to contemplate...since I am usually going a mile a minute, I think slowing down is RAD...especially for letter writing.

Estela

thanks for the RAD giveaway, I really think its rad to write with calligraphy pens even if you don't know calligraphy it just looks fun!

Donovan Beeson

I think fluorescent silkworms are pretty rad: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/06/colorful-fluorescent-silk/

Linda

Well, you already know this...but, I think your latest R.S.V.P.#12 Air Mail program is really RAD !! :>

Janna White

Something rad you should know about: Badlands National Park in South Dakota. It is amazing and, blissfully, without reception, so that you get to tune in and drop out!!

jackie

i just finished my first AIDS/LifeCycle (a 545 mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money to fight and awareness around HIV/AIDS) and i sent a jillion postcards from the road to friends, family and donors. the ride, the mail, the unplugging, and all the reflection was super, super RAD!

jean

This is one fantastic blog. I find thses notebooks COOL.

Amanda

Totally random, but I think the Zooborns blog is rad. Baby animals to delight me every day!

Thanks for ANOTHER awesome giveaway!

Nicole

I'm a BRAND NEW member - just joined two days ago. Hope I can participate here. We just had a RAD 4th of July Party with a bunch of games. The "Minute to Win It" style ones were super fun and you can find a whole host of them on their website.

amanda

the new-for-me typewriter is about to be pretty rad once I get some new ribbon

Shanti

Sewing my new LWA patch on to some sweaters and it's not even fall yet is pretty RAD!!

Alice

I think the Goulet Pen Company Ink Drop club is RAD! Not only is it great that they sell 2 ml ink samples for under $2 (for most of them), but they also have a club you can join. For $10 a month, Ink Drop members get a monthly shipment of a "mystery" set of inks - different colors and brands usually based on a theme for that month. They have an archive on their website so you can see what previous months colors/brands have been AND you can order those previous months if you desire. We ordered our son the July 2011 ink drop package that had highlighter inks, including an invisible ink with a black light ring to put on your finger for writing and decoding letters. He uses this sometimes when writing to his pen pals. Now the ring is sold separatesly from the ink drop package, but it is still available on their website. LOVE the ink drop club concept!!! http://www.gouletpens.com/Ink_Drop_Membership_p/inkdrop.htm

Thanks for the great 3 Part post on subscriptions. I would love to win this RAD giveaway. Fingers crossed.... Jane

Laura Roberts

I know it's not necessarily letter oriented, but have you heard of Papirmasse? It's an art subscription by mail, and they're based in Canada: http://papirmasse.com/art/
