About Me

  • UPDATE: I recently quit my job in order to finish my final year of my Master's of Social Work with less stress. I'm currently in talks to maybe become an incredibly part time employee at a local fabric store that is delightfully fancy. I hope I get that! Otherwise, I'll be interning at one of our two local VA Hospitals. I'm incredibly interested with working with veterans and older adults, so it should be a placement right up my alley. Ultimate goal is to get hired on at the VA so that I can pick up federal service where I left off.

  • 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 five cats, Zapp Brannigan, Ginger, Callie, Snickers, & Wendy. 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.

  • 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.

  • I have fallen in love with hand binding my own books. Plus, it's a great way for me to use up some of my larger gelli prints. Book making is so calming to me, and I love being able to gift a small one to a person now and then and seeing them light up over it.

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.
