About Me

UPDATE - I temporarily left SwapBot in August, 2012, but I returned in June, 2013. I've really missed swapping, but a bunch of real life issues have kept me away. I look forward to being part of this amazing community once again!

Hi there!

My name is Elizabeth (but my friends and family call me Liz), and I'm a papercraft addict! I primarily make cards and ATCs, but recently I've been branching out into altered projects (like journals and picture frames), drawing, painting and creating mixed media canvas art. I love participating in swaps and getting a chance to push my creativity beyond what I'd normally come up with on my own.

I'm from Ottawa, Canada, 33, and happily married. Hubby and I are expecting our first child in January, 2014, and we're over the moon! We also have one absolutely adorable little cat who currently rules the household (little does he know how that's going to change when the baby comes!). When I'm not crafting, I can be found reading in my library of over 3000 books (yeah, I'm a bit of a collector!), watching movies, or hiking.

I have an artsy blog I'd love for you to visit: Creative Frenzy

You can also follow me on Pinterest: My Pinterest Boards

And you're more than welcome to check out my Etsy wishlist:

Etsy Wishlist

I Collect:

  • Postcards. I love to receive them blank, if possible. I like all kinds of postcards, but especially: vintage, New York, Austin, Texas, pop culture, cats/kittens, and odd or quirky postcards.

  • Ephemera. i.e. book pages, decorative napkins (clean, of course!), ticket stubs, etc.

  • Washi Tape. Any color / style.

  • Craft Supplies. I particularly enjoy patterned paper, stamps, inks and embellishments of all kinds.

  • Shoes. I have tons of them, and I love anything shoe-related.

  • Books. I love: romance, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, chick lit, Harlequin novels... Basically, anything light and fluffy is right up my alley.

  • Candles. I like scented products and love interesting candle shapes and candle holders.

I Love:

  • Glitter
  • Handmade cards
  • Handmade envelopes
  • The following colors: red, white, black, cream, rust, yellow, any pastel color.
  • Photography (modern and vintage)
  • Chocolate and candy
  • Tea (no fruit flavors, please; Earl Grey and mint are my absolute favorites)
  • Jewellery of all kinds
  • Nail polish
  • Hearts
  • Fantasy themes (dragons, fairies, vampires, werewolves, etc.)
  • Pencils and pens, all colors
  • Pop culture (especially art inspired by celebrities, movies, music, etc.)
  • Cardstock, any color!
  • Scrapbooking embellishments
  • Stationary and other pen pal supplies
  • Brads
  • Stamps and ink
  • New York City
  • Austin, Texas
  • Europe in general, Romania in particular (I was born there)
  • Cats / kittens
  • Address labels with my address on them
  • Project Life cards (3x4 and 4x6)

I Dislike:

  • Kids' themes and items (Disney, Hello Kitty, etc.)
  • Stickers
  • The smell of smoke (I'm allergic.)
  • Inspirational or faith themes.
  • Young adult fiction and movies (Twilight, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hunger Games, etc.)

Swaps and Ratings

I will not flake on you. EVER! I know how much time and effort we all spend on our creations, and not receiving something in return is the pits. I promise not to do that to you.

So, if you're supposed to receive something from me and you haven't gotten it, PLEASE let me know before you rate me! I will resend, or make it up to you in some other way. I really enjoy swapping, and wouldn't want to jeopardize this wonderfully fulfilling experience. In return, I'll always do the same for you.


I was hoping I wouldn't have to create a section for this, but alas, 8 months into my Swap-Bot adventure, here I am.

I've been flaked on by:

Comment: My family goes sailing in summer so the postcard of JFK is interesting. I hope that you are enjoying your last few weeks of child-free life. Your life will definitely change soon and I hope that your cat copes with the changes too.

Hi Elixabeth, congrats on the new baby news (but utter jealously over your library ..and possibly the fact that you have room to store them all!) =)

Thank you very much for my August wishes. I just got back into postcards (and post crossing) and need to update my stash. Except I'm keeping all the ones you sent me LOL. I LOVE the gorgeous tiger one especially but you picked great!

Hope you have a great weekend!
