About Me

Updated November 2019

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 10 year old and a 6 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 love swapping. 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. Thank you to everyone that has ever sent anything to me. I feel so fortunate to have received some truly beautiful and thoughtful swaps :)

My swaps come from smoke free 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
