About Me

Updated Dec. 2017

Hello :) I am an esthetician by trade and own a small day spa. I love what I do but my secret dream is to support myself as an artist. I have 2 lovely daughters a 8 year old and a 4 year old. My husband is a professional chef and we live in California's central valley.

My daughters keep me busy! They are also an inspiration to do more creative things. I have a craft table continuously covered in projects and a husband that is sweet enough to ignore the mess.

I am loving swap-bot. Apparently I am a lot more creative when I have a deadline. I have had a great time making things for my partners or even just decorating the packaging that I send my swaps in.

I am a Chemo Angel. Check it out!

My swaps come from a pet free, smoke free, toddler terrorized home. My wishlist, favorites and likes lists are just to give ideas of what types/styles of things I like. I am happy to receive used items as long as they are in good condition. I re-use packaging whenever possible.

I take a lot of time and care with each swap and I would greatly appreciate it if my partners would do the same.

I am always open to private swaps. The ones I have done so far have been absolutely awesome!

Thanks for reading. ~Lisa

Comment: Hi Lisa!! What a fun package to brighten my day!! Thanks so much!! I love the wrapping paper and packaging! :o) Saving them for Christmas morning--despite the temptation! I'm so glad we did this swap too--hopefully it will become a new Christmas tradition! I hope you and your family have a Merry, Merry Christmas! I'll be in touch after the holidays to thank you further. Hugs! ****Update 1/5/16: I'm sorry its taken me a bit longer to get back to you than I anticipated. After all the Christmas crazy traveling I just crashed until today when it's time to head back to the real world! lol Thank you so very much for the amazing swap package. I LOVED everything. And it all smelled delightful from the spa goodies. The Cavallini rubber stamp set made me swoon with delight as did those awesome large tapes with the air mail and Russian doll themes, I loved the soup bowl and the mermaid journals too. And that adorable zipper pouch, so sweet. You really made my Christmas and Birthday brighter! Thank you so much. <3

I'm sorry this is so late, but thank you for this wishes you sent for my September AATW wishlist. I really appreciate the Halloween stickers. I loved the decorated envie, too. The font you wrote or printed the address on the envie in was really awesome and spooky. I've had a challenging past 3 months and wasn't able to get around to posting this comment until now. I really appreciate you thinking about me and sending me a wish. Love ya!
