About Me

To my partners, I live in a very rural area with only 1600 people. Mail does not come to my house. We do have a post box down the street with more then 40 others. I don't feel comfortable leaving your swaps out there so I take them to the post office in town. The last pick up here is at 230 (not 530 like most bigger towns.) Also the post office is closed on Saturday. So if I drop something off after 230 on the due date it will not get postmark until the next day. Please try to be understanding of this. Also if there is anything wrong with the swap please message me before giving me a bad rating. I would like the opportunity to make it right before you rate me.


I’m from San Diego CA. I’m a retired Animal Control Officer; I did it for 15 years, it was my passion and I miss it dearly. I had back surgery and am no longer able to do the job.

Due to me retiring I decided to move La Pine Oregon to live near my parents and start a new chapter in my life. Defiantly a big change from San Diego and I’m still getting use to the winter up here. But I love the beauty and simple life it offers. I just started (April 2017) working in the small town I live in. I love it. Its so neat to be part of a small town community!

(Update March 2018) I'm starting a new job at a veterinary hospital! I'm super excited to get back to working with animals! I also decided to go back to school to become a certified veterinary technician.

I love being near my parents. My mom (luvbird) is also on Swap-bot, I love doing crafts with her. We have SOOOO much fun shopping for supplies too and we share everything which is fun.

Some of my favorite things to do other than crafts are camping, fishing, and hiking. I love being outdoors enjoying nature. I also love thrift store shopping. I could spend a whole day hitting up several stores. I love finding cute clothes and shoes for dollars. I also love sitting outside bird watching or sitting by a fire pit.

I LOVE animals!! I have three cats: Teddy, Ninny and Tinker Bell. I have a 15-year-old Border Collie named Smokey Joe and French Bull dog named Daisy Mae. And can’t forget my bearded dragon (lizard) named Hopps. All of them are from the shelter! Shelter pets are the BEST!!

I’m a spiritual person and I try to be positive and loving in all situations. I like inspirational quotes.

Favorite Crafts

I love doing all kinds of crafts from paper crafts, sewing, jewelry making, making wreaths, pretty much everything.

I love make ATCs, inchies, twinchies, tags and other altered art!

Crafts I want to learn to do are crocheting/knitting, tole painting, hand drawing and painting.

I’ve been trying new mix media techniques lately, which have been a lot fun!

Favorite Things

A few of my favorite things are; Anything French bulldog, Dogs, Cats, birds (some of my favorite are hummingbirds, blue jays, owls and hawks), Feathers, wildlife, Dream catchers, Vintage, Victorian, Shabby chic,

My favorite colors are: shabby chic colors, soft pinks and creams ext. I also love Peacock blue, dark red and plum purple.

Things I don’t like are perfume and floral smells (I get a headache) and neon colors.

Favorite Music

Johnny Cash, country music, classic rock, blues and classical at times

Comment: Oh, Lori, I love this! What a wonderful size. The angel trimming the tree with that glittery garland is gorgeous. Your embellishments are always so tasteful and work so well with the design. LOVE that gold scalloped-edge ribbon. Thank you for another beauty! Oops! Almost forget . . . I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ornament you included! It's gorgeous and is already hanging up! I love all animal life (as you do) and the sweet birdie is so perfect for Christmas. Thank you for the stickers, too--they're so delicate and lovely.

Comment: Lori, your ATC should be the poster child for beautiful ATC's! I LOVE pink and blue for Christmas. The images you used are precious (especially that Santa) and the touches of glitter are beautiful. Thank you, my friend!

Comment: Hi Lori!! Good news! Everything arrived today--the day BEFORE Christmas! This tag is (as all your work) beautiful. LOVE the partridge at the tippy-top of the tree an the sweet bunnies dancing around on the ground. From one animal lover to another ;+) Thank you for joining and creating something special to add to my collection. I adore it!

Comment: Hi Lori! What a beautifully decorated open envie! You are so very creative and it's always a great pleasure to receive your work. You know I care nothing for postmarks--I'd rather my partner be inspired to be creative. LOVE all the little goodies you sent for me; I'm tucking them away 'til next year. Glad to know you're helping your mom out while she's recuperating. Thank you and happy holidays!

Comment: Oooh, Lori, this is CUTE! I love the little dancing pumpkin lady with her zetti stockings! Love all the little touches--the spiderweb rounds, the sweet ribbon, and the tiniest of buttons tied with thread. I'm also IN LOVE with those amazing tags and pieces you sent in the little owl bag. You always send the nicest swaps ;+)

Comment: I have to use the same excuse as with my previous (late) rating...I just discovered this beauty, and it IS a beauty! So many fabulous details, such as the teensy "pearls" around the lady's neck, the miniature gold filigree butterfly...it's all just amazing. Thank you so much for being the best imaginable swap partner, sweet friend!

Dear Lori, I think it's terrible that people can be so picky & ill will...over a postmark wtf! Just know that there's a bunch of us here that think you're an awesome swapper. Best of Christmas Wishes to you & yours.

Kimmi50 on Nov 6, 2017:

I agree with Donetta, I can’t believe someone would rate You(one of the most amazing swap partners EVER!) a 3 for something so ridiculous. This person obviously has issues of her own to do something like that to you, she was probably jealous. Like Donetta said please don’t let something like this stop you from sharing you beautiful artwork with the world. I appreciate every single swap I have received from you and I know there are lots of people here feel the same way too! Take care, we luv yah!!

donetta on Oct 30, 2017:

Lori, you are living my nightmare...being rated a 3 for something so trivial. Whatever happened to kindness and grace? Why do some swappers seem to take pleasure in rating down...I can't IMAGINE checking the postmark for an opportunity to give my partner a 3! You are one of the best swap partners to ever cross my path...please don't let this ruin your pleasure in the process of creating and sending your beautiful artwork. This situation is the main reason that I hesitate to swap outside "our" 5 groups!

donetta on Nov 30, 2016:

Thank you (and your mom) very, very much for the thoughtful and beautiful Christmas gift. I love everything so much...that gorgeous bird ornament will have pride of place on my tree this year! It is exquisite. I just love you guys, and not because you bought me a present, either! Christmas hugs to both of you!
