If anyone needs to get ahold of me for any reason please email me at email@example.com. While I am pretty sure I don't owe anyone for any tags or swaps if for some reason something has gone missing please contact me via email.
I haven't been swapping for a long time now. My health has been very up and down, more down than up. On top of that the mail has been very unreliable in my city for many months now.
My hope is that sometime in the future I will be able to swap more again.
Hello! My name is Laurie and I have been an artist and designer for many years now. I find my inspiration in many things and draw heavily on color, patterns and Asian artwork/textiles. I love to reuse/repurpose/upcycle.
I am a single mom to three kids and I work part time as a PC tech. I also run an LLC called Origami & Feast. I love penpals and letters and will always respond, though it may take me some time. And if you need some PC repair advice my inbox is always open.
Little Known Fact: I volunteer my time and computer skills a few times a month for the Doe Network and Namus. These two networks primarily run on volunteer work. Their mission is to help match profiles of missing people with profiles of deceased unidentified people. It’s heartbreaking work but it’s worthwhile.
Warning: I have animal children (cats). While I try to keep fur out of my swaps from time to time one or two hairs might get in. I apologize in advance.
Allergies: wool and vanilla scent - if it smells like vanilla in any way please don't send it, pumpkin ANYTHING, thanks!
People who have no compassion, lie, bigots, racists, drama creators and hate in general. People who put zero effort into their swaps. I don't expect someone to follow my profile verbatim but barely making an effort to meet the minimum swap requirements makes me wonder if the person really likes swapping.
Please don't send me religious stuff unless it’s a religious swap. Likewise with food/snacks/tea, if the swap calls for those things then it is ok, otherwise please don't send it. Thank you! Please no Earl Grey Tea or Lipton brand tea, thanks.

@cutesygirlynai - Non-rater. I sent her a package back at the beginning of October 2014. I have proof of mailing and proof that she received the package. She claims she never received and now will not answer pms.
@TurtleTats - Flaker. Flaked on me for faux food swap that was angled by the hostess. Has contacted me several times claiming she will resend but nothing has ever shown up.
