~IMPORTANT: my zip code is actually 60073, swap-bot wont allow me to change my zipcode at this time. if you use the one listed as my address instead it will still get to me but will take longer.~

Hello! I'm Lauren & I love to make things. I'm happiest when I'm working with my hands. I'm 20 years old & have a gig drawing caricatures during the Summer & Fall and attend college on the side.

My favorite art mediums to work with are ink pens & watercolor. People are my favorite subjects to draw. I just recently learned how to knit & now I can't stop! I'll probably be swapping some of my creations on here the near future! ;)

I'm not one of those picky or easily offended swappers so you don't have to worry about tiptoeing around me. go wild! Let's be friends!

I'm currently trying to boost my user rating, I sent a few things late in the past because life got too hectic but I promise to stay on top of things.

Favorite Movies

Alt text

-The Shining

-The Royal Tennenbaums (or any Wes Anderson films for that matter)

-The End of Evangelion

-Kill Bill

I generally like a movie if it makes me think and changes my point of view.

I like old sponge-bob eppisodes

Favorite Books

Alt text

I'm Reading: Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins

Alt text

Gotta finish this one before the movie comes out in November!!

That is really weird about not being able to change your address. I just moved and changed mine yesterday....no problem what so ever. You need to contact admin ASAP...this is going to cause a lot of issues for your partners.

stlouisphile on Dec 3, 2013:

If you can't change your zip code on s-b try contacting admin to look into the problem - your partners may not look @ your profile and could miss this important information.

Hocus Pocus Magic up my profile


takehimaway on Oct 2, 2013:

Billy Butcherson: Go to hell! Winifred Sanderson: Oh! I've been there, thank you. I found it quite lovely.

Dani: You saved my life. Max: I had to. I'm your big brother. Dani: I love you, jerkface. Max: I love you, too.

Dani: Okay, okay. Next year, we go trick-or-treating as Wendy and Peter Pan... [looks him straight in the eye] Dani: ... with tights or it's no deal. Max: [as Dani attempts to leave] Okay, okay, deal, deal.

Winifred Sanderson: What a fool to give us thy life... for thy sister's.

Allison: I like your costume, Dani. Dani: Thank you! I really like yours too. Of course, I couldn't wear anything like that because I don't have any - what do you call them, Max? Yabbos? [Max nearly spits out the cider he's drinking] Dani: Max likes your yabbos... in fact, he loves them!

Winifred Sanderson: Sisters, All Hallow's Eve has become a night of frolic, where children wear costumes and run amok! Sarah: Amok! [dances around] Sarah: Amok, amok, amok, amok, amok... [Winnifred punches Sarah in the stomach] Sarah: Ugh!

Dani: It's a full moon tonight. That's when all the weirdos are out.

Winifred Sanderson: Well, tell me friend, what is this contraption? Bus Driver: I call it... a bus. Winifred Sanderson: A bus. And its purpose? Bus Driver: To convey gorgeous creatures such as yourselves to your most... [cracks his knuckle] Bus Driver: forbidden desires. Winifred Sanderson: [laughs] Well, fancy! We desire... children. Bus Driver: Hey, it may take me a couple of tries, but I don't think there's gonna be a problem.

Mary Sanderson: Sisters, Satan has married Medusa. See the snakes in her hair.

Winifred Sanderson: Unfaithful lover long since dead. Deep asleep in thy wormy bed. Wiggle thy toes, open thine eyes, twist thy fingers toward the sky. Life is sweet, be not shy. On thy feet. So sayeth I!

Cop: [disapprovingly] You lit the Black-Flamed Candle? Max: Yeah. Cop: Come on. Okay, let's get on the sidewalk Dani: And he's a virgin. [the cop stares at them] Cop: [to Max] Come here. [Max comes closer to him] Cop: [whispers] Are you a virgin? Max: Yeah. Cop: Really? Max: Look, I'll get it tattooed on my forehead, okay?

Bus Driver: [Encountering the Sanderson Sisters] Bubble, bubble! I'm in trouble!

Happy Halloween, and happy swapping! TWENTY-NINE MORE DAYS! Who's excited?!
