Mail Troubles: posted 7/16/19

I've had a few swaps go missing recently. I no longer have a car so I started to drop my mail off at blue boxes and put it on my mailbox for the carrier to take, while before I was driving it to the closest post office.

Until I get this resolved I have dropped any swaps that partners haven't been assigned and I will not be joining any new swaps until I'm sure everything has gotten to my partners.

About Me


Hi! I am in my late 20s with no kids. I like to craft and create and want to get back into sharing my creativity with others and being inspired by ya'll too.

I graduated college in 2011 with my bachelor's degree in Actuarial Science. I want to be an actuary but the job market is crummy so let me know if you have an 'in' at an insurance company in Columbus! I've worked at my local Meals-On-Wheels office for 6 years but I'd like to get a job in my career field specifically. The pay is a lot better as an actuary too so that doesn't hurt πŸ˜“

I am active in my local lgtbq community and strongly support lgbtq rights. Other than that my political views aren't strong in any particular direction. I am agnostic but I am open and accepting of all. I don't mind receiving religious things from any religion but I am not interested in arguing.




Since rejoining swap-bot I've gotten a renewed interest in Mail Art. I love the idea of brightening someone's day through their mailbox before even opening the envelope or package.

I enjoy making cards and sewing small projects. I especially like making interactive cards and small plushies. For years I've made my younger cousin video game character themed plushies for Christmas and he just asked me to teach him to see so he could make his own. I'm excited to do so.

I love trying new things also. I am a beginner at most swap-bot crafts but am really enjoying ATCs, Inchies, Altered Objects, & Zentangles.


My favorite colors are shades of blue and purple. I also enjoy all the colors together as a rainbow.


Things I Hoard

  • Plain and decorative paper & cardstock! I can't get enough. Along those lines I also have some I don't like out of multipacks that I would love to pass on to someone that could use them.
  • Adhesives. Tape, clear, duct, deco, washi, painters, mailing, glue, spray adhesive, double sided tape & scrapbook style squares...
  • Stickers. Scrapbook style, alphabets, kiddie, Everything. I have been addicted since I was a kid.
  • Pens. I don't like to use pencil much and prefer to use pens. I have over 100 black pens :/
  • Magnets.
  • Post It style note pads of all sizes
  • Rubber & acrylic stamps. I just got a hinged stamping platform and like trying new techniques with that.


I am really easy to please when it comes to swaps. I like trying new things and seeing others perspectives.

My ratings


I accept the 3 and two 1's on my profile and want to thank the swapper that changed her rating. I was late and it was entirely my fault. I am working to gain everyone on swap-bot's trust back. Thanks.

Comment: Thanks for the cheezy chunk! Popcorn is my go-to snack. I like how you rounded the corners - why didn't I think of that?

Comment: I haven't ever tried these cookies. They aren't sold locally, but I have seen them at a store I enjoy visiting. Unfortunately, I don't get there very often; it's about 80 miles north of where I live. The box made a super cute "chunk". Thanks for sharing! ☺🌷

Comment: Hi Lizz! Thanks for the moon pie pc. Sorry about the late rating, but love what you sent. I like the milk chocolate ones the best, not a fan of white chocolate. Hope you are keeping cool these really hot days. I've taken part in these swaps for a few years, off and on. Love making the recycled postcards. Take care ~ Judy

Comment: Thanks lizz! This went above and beyond. I have always loved small world and the ride and ride it numerous times when I go. I have yet to take my son. But know how much he would love the magic kingdom. The doctor who bookmark my son loved and the stickers are awesome. Thanks so much and I would love to send u a handwritten thank you if u want to pm me ur snail address. β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸŒžπŸŒžπŸ’—
Response: I'm so happy you liked the things I sent so much. I like profile themed swaps like this and it was fun to have the added challenge of not buying anything, only sending treasures already on hand. I love the idea of brightening someone's day this much.

Comment: Hi lizz! It looks like your COC pc came in several days ago, but i went out of town. YES, I LOVE popcorn too! I eat a low carb diet, so i have to limit it though. :(( I've been doing these swaps for several years (off & on) and these are one of my faves. Thanks for the swap & keep "popping!"
Response: These swaps are so much fun. I find myself looking at packaging in the grocery store now and having to resist the urge to buy something just because it would make a nice postcard πŸ˜‚

Comment: I love these Cheez Its. I have done a few of these swaps, but not consistently. I really enjoy them because I like creating the postcards to send out.
Response: Me too!

Dear Lizz, thank you so much for the clear stamps you sent me for the 5,4,3,2,1 forum tag. I'm excited and looking forward to using them in my next craft work. ❀️

Mimi7 on Jun 19, 2019:

Lizz, missing you in the art collab swaps. I am sending on your card from round #31 today and this will be the last person to work on it. I think you will be impressed by how it is turning out take care

Onaki on Jun 11, 2019:

Tracking says my giant box of goodies RAK reached you yesterday, just making sure you got it! :)

donetta on Feb 27, 2019:

I received a set of LOVELY inchies from you...a makeup for a swap from 2013. I wish I could find the swap to change your rating, but I've tried and failed. (I swap a LOT)! I hope you come back to regular swapping, Liz...potential swap partners are really missing out in your absence. Thank you for making up this swap, and thank you for sending such a fabulous collection of miniature cuteness!
