About Me

  • UPDATE: I just started the second year on my Master's degree so I will not be swapping as much as before. I'll still participate in a few from time to time, but I won't reallllllly pick up a bunch until school breaks. :)

  • Please, please , please contact me before rating me with a low number if you don't receive your swap. I send them out, but sometimes they do get lost. I'm more than happy to re-send to make sure you get your swap! ^__^

  • I love to explore beadwork. I mainly use seed beads, but I love large, funky beads. Plastic beads with a flat back that have interesting detail are neat, but I don't like pony beads or dull colors. Cabochons and other trinkets with flat backs such as fun buttons are great! I love to use oddities in my art.

  • Trained in darkroom photography and metalsmithing. I love keeping my hands busy creating. If I had my druthers, I would have a studio to pursue these hobbies, however I do not. That's why I bead, sew, and do a few other things in my very spare time. However, I love creating things for people, so I'm hoping to participate in a few more of the handmade items swaps!

  • Cats are my spirit animals. I currently have three cats, Zapp Brannigan, Ginger, and Callie. They're each silly and special in their own unique ways. I love cat themed items, and I consider myself a bit of a cat lady.

  • I work in security and am currently pursuing my Master's of Social Work. I love people and want to do a bit of good in the world or at least try to do just that. In a way, doing swaps does bring a bit of good to someone's life, if only for that little bit.

  • In my spare time I dig catching live music, a movie from time to time, and hitting up one of the several amazing parks near me. I like being outside when the weather is decent!

  • Let's see, the more creative the swap, the more I'm probably going to like it. I'm a crafter at heart and appreciate handmade items! I hope to be able to participate in some swaps like that at some point in time.

  • No allergies that I know of. Chocolate is one of my best friends, haha. I love bright and colorful things, the brighter the better usually.

  • I know this is a disjointed profile, but it's just how I roll. I love people, I love crafting, and I just want to participate and enjoy swapping!

  • Most importantly,I get so excited to send and receive snail mail! Each envelope or package is always such a treat, and I like to think that I can put a smile on someone else's face by participating! I love receiving mail art. I just made my first minizine and the swap host said they were addictive. She was correct, and I'm looking forward to making more.

  • Recently started making mini envies. Now those are addicting!!!

  • I've started making ATCs, and I freaking adore them! However, I'm not one who embellishes them with all the bells and whistles, I'm a good old sharpie/watercolor/paint kind of gal when I make mine. Just wanted to get that out there so no one can't say I didn't warn them! Mine are typically all HD/HP. :)

  • I try to get my swaps out as quickly as possible. I do not flake, and I hope no one does on me. However, I realize this probably happens more often than not. I won't be one of those folks, so no worries here.

Comment: Oh Lizzie...I so adore what you did with this swap! You are right, the women are so defiant! The story is so fun and the ink bleed from the back makes perfect soot marks. Agnes and Charlotte are my new BFFs! Thank you <3

Comment: Thank you for the awesome note card, labels, and paper doll. I'm not a paper crafter at all. I suck at it. I try, but I fail miserably. I was amazed at how tiny the brads were! I've never seen brads that tiny before. The first thing I thought of when I saw the doll was the robot from the cover of the Queen album "News of the World." I want to find a way to put that face on the doll (I don't know if I could draw it). IDK if you've seen that episode of "Family Guy" where Brian terrorizes Stewie with that album cover. It's hilarious. Thank you for such a fun swap.

Comment: Thank you for the unusual collage background and the penguin--they are so funny! The quotation you used is one of my favorites. I have a stamp that uses that quote.
Response: I love odd, colorful backgrounds. It's one of my favorite quotes too, so I'm glad you like it as well. Also super excited it finally made it down your way! :)

Lizzie, I ADORE this ATC, it makes me think a little bit of the Death Star =o). I have to learn to use my gelli plate...I had not thought about using it with printed papers. Awesome envelope too, thank you so very much!
