About Me

I am a vintage seller and handcrafted jewelry artist on Etsy. I also work with adults with developmental disabilities.

I'm currently joining swaps to generate some mail for one of my clients, so here are some of her likes: Birds-especially parakeets. She owns two. Coffee & tea The Chicago Blackhawks Pink and purple

Please note, I do have some ridiculously bad allergies: Anything perfumed or strongly scented items...extremely allergic to them! Vanilla and lavender scents are usually okay, though.

Cigarette smoke...PLEASE, please, please, if you are a smoker...try to avoid the item you send coming in contact with smoke...you will trigger sever allergic reaction when I open it. I'm not telling you to quit, just asking you to not smoke while you handle the items you send to me.

I love thrift and flea market shopping, and am always looking for vintage treasures!

I love doing my swaps and will ALWAYS send mine out! If you do not receive anything from me, please contact me first!

Please note that I prefer to recycle packaging whenever possible, but will always send my swaps out in clean packaging. I will also dress it up, so you won't even notice!

Favorite Crafts

Jewelry, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, refinishing furniture, felted sweater crafts, baking and cooking to some extent.

Favorite Music

The Monkees, The Beatles, The New Pornographers, She & Him and Grant-Lee Phillips/Grant Lee Buffalo take up the majority of my listening time, but I have an ever-changing playlist of classic rock, punk, alternative, indie, and classical music. Not a big fan of rap or country.

Favorite Movies

Any Audrey Hepburn movie, Marie Antoinette, Elizabethtown, Lord of the Rings, The Thin Man movies are some of my faves. I am an avid movie-watcher and have seen a seriously ridiculous amount of movies and TV shows, but am oddly picky about what I will watch.

Favorite Television

Pushing Daisies, New Girl, Once Upon a Time, Gilmore Girls, Doctor Who (classic and current), Life on Mars(UK), The Walking Dead, White Collar. I enjoy watching a variety of shows, lately it's mostly sci-fi and comedy.

Favorite Books

Lord of the Rings, Sherlock Holmes, The Alienist series by Caleb Carr, children's books by Margaret Wise Brown(my all time favorite book is actually The Little Fur Family by her!)

Misc. Favorites

Anything nicely handmade

Cartoon Characters: Hello Kitty and Chococat, Snoopy, Classic Mickey Mouse(ones with the black dot or Pac-Man eyes!), Danger Mouse

Chai lattes from Starbucks(yum). Tazo Chai teabags or k-cups are ok to send.

Scents: vanilla, lavender, cherry

I collect a myriad of things, but the main ones are:

Model horses--Breyer, Hagen-Renaker, etc.

Mold-A-Rama figures-- these are the molded plastic machine souvenirs that some zoos and museums have. I only have access to Milwaukee and Chicago area ones, so I love getting figures from other locations!

Children's books by Margaret Wise Brown

Vintage rhinestone buttons, record albums, hardcover books, stuffed animals(but please do not send unless it is for a specific swap!), music, movies & TV shows, Temporama dinnerware, mercury glass(vintage and new), Monkees memorabilia, photographs, old barrel-type skeleton keys, coins and paper money. I'm always open to starting new collections!

Colors: pretty much any color blue or green(except emerald green), deep reds, neutral colors.

Animals: FOXES! horses, cats, dogs, owls, tigers, deer

Time periods/aesthetics: mostly mid-century(50's & 60's), but I also like victorian/steampunk/gothic and french/country styles. I'll be the first to admit, my decorating tastes are, um... eclectic (to say the least!)

Please Do Not Send

Coffee or regular tea-I don't really drink either, so it just goes to waste. :( my client will drink them, so I will join swaps that involve them

Anything with neon colors

Overly perfumed or scented items...vanilla scented items are usually okay.

Clowns

Anything mint flavored

ALLERGIES: Perfumed or strongly scented items...extremely allergic to them!

Cigarette smoke...PLEASE, please, please, if you are a smoker...try to avoid the item you send coming in contact with smoke...you will trigger sever allergic reaction when I open it.

Flaked On...

Just for my reference, angels are welcome but not necessary:

For some strange reason the link to your Etsy faves wasn't working so here's the link (for your partner) to your Etsy faves for the $4-$6 Etsy swap- http://www.etsy.com/people/Liesldesigns/favorites?ref=pr_faves

ElizabethObviously on Dec 7, 2012:

Just wondering if you received from me for the $5-$7 Etsy swap?

fluffyporscha on Sep 22, 2012:

Hi i was just wondering if you have received my
Christmas Ornament Swap - Round 6! as of yet as i have sent a few messages and have had no response could you please let me know if you have received it or if i have to resend thanks

Jester777 on Jul 28, 2012:

Just thought it was worth noting your "Etsy Favorites" link on your profile doesn't work, it asks me if I want to bookmark the link, doesn't direct me to it! Haha.

Heyhey! I think this group could match with your interests in becoming a Sailor Scout! (:
