About Me


I Pledge To Rate If you are my partner and have not received a swap from me, kindly message me. I always send a week early with a tracking number. Just to be on the safe side. I work extremely hard and go above and beyond on every swap I sign up for. That being said, the minute I receive your package. I will connect on to the Bot and rate you fairly!

I am super OCD responsible enough to send out all my swaps on time. I never over extend myself and only sign up for what I can commit to and always follow through no matter what. A couple of years ago when my mom died in a tragic and unexpected accident and even going through Hurricane Irma, I sent out on time and kept my swap partners informed.

Harry Winston Watch Out, I Dream in Diamonds My name is Lauren and I live in the sunny state of Florida by way of Hollywood, California. SAHW & married the man of my dreams in 2010. Became a mommy on Valentine's Day 2013 & D-Day 2015. What can I say, I liked going into labor on holidays. My little man and princess have perfect timing is all I can say. I am still adjusting to this title called MOMMY & balancing my ever demanding career of costume making. Its a little nuts around here with cute little mini me's and a whole lot of crystals and feathers. LOL (SELFIE QUEEN)

Me Me 2

I am a designer of all things Swarovski: Crystallized Bikinis, Extravagant Costume/Theme Wear, Vintage Luggage & Shoes. I love the creation process. A truly calming experience for me and I feel doing it right the first time (in biz and in life) is the reason why I have customers return time and time again. Theme wear & shoes are my favorite things to make.

My home away from home, it is where I am the happiest. I am so obsessed. On my 40th Birthday, I would like to renew my vows at DisneyWorld. We even named our Black & White Persian Cat Disney! Disney means more to me than life itself.

Disney Castle

Chandelier Chandelier Chandelier Chandelier Chandelier Chandelier

French Chateau

I love homes that have true character, that hold a little mystery. I could definitely do some decorating damage to this house. Love this French Chateau Style Manor, definitely would love to own a vintage manor one day. Hey never stop dreaming! Two of my favorite websites for homes are: Circa Old Houses - www.circaoldhouses.com Chateau Gudanes - www.chateaugudanes.com

Painted Lady

Painted Ladies, don't even get me started. It would be like living in an actual doll house. I totally could live in one of them. Gorgeous stained glass, turrets, pocket doors, cellars and attics for plenty of storage and areas you can turn into work and craft rooms. Would die to own one of them! Not sure I could convince my honey bunny, plus he is way too tall to fit through the door ways.

Mini Carousel Mini Carousel Mini Carousel Mini Carousel Mini Carousel Mini Carousel

I am so addicted to the past times and iconic treasures of the bygone era. There is something truly magical about a carousel and it is one of my favorite rides at Disneyland & World. The horses are complete works of art with such detail carved into each one. I would also love to own one of my very own carousel horses so I could completely cover her in Swarovski Crystals. Dreams are wonderful aren't they? I have actually rode the carousel below three times when I was in Paris. once in the hot air balloon in the rain, 2nd time in the Venetian Canopy Seat and the third time on a gorgeous horse with flowers all over the mane and tail. I will never forget it and hope to take my kids one day.

Champagne Champagne Champagne Champagne

My obsession with the Edwardian Period, Gilded Age and all the way to the 1950's started when I felI in love with reading. This time period holds so much magic and mystery. I love how everything connects once you start to your research. I do believe in my former life I was an American Heiress. Lover of all things sparkly and diamonds are definitely my best friend. I believe in style, decorum and the family legacy goes along way. My dream would be to live in a grand estate with a full staff, but for now I will be grateful with living on the 11th hole of the golf course. Meeting up with friends for lunch, letter boxing, chasing my kids around, finding time to sit down & breathe are the activities that consume my current days.


Being an Heiress Is Not Easy: So finding things to entertain and inspire me can prove to be difficult at times. Here is a list of things that either entertain or inspire me in no particular order:

  • Women's Rights (Suffragette in the house)
  • Edwardian Period in NY (Titanic & Gilded Age)
  • Carousels
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • History of Hollywood, CA (My hometown)
  • Disney Imagineer (Disney Obsessed)
  • Hollywood Regency Decor, just like my home
  • 20th Century Architecture
  • Pin ups and Vaudeville Themes
  • Love Rosaries & Virgin of Guadalupe Stuff
  • Letterboxing check out www.atlasquest.com

What I Collect

OMG seriously obsessed with this little kitty made by Lefton (Little Miss Priss). I love her so much that every time I see her at vintage/antique shops, I buy her right away. I look at her and I get that warm and fuzzy feeling like she is smiling right at me. They are hard to find and when you do they are quite a bit of money. I did happened to snag the cookie jar for $15 and have seen it on eBay selling at almost $400. Crazy I know. So when I am out and about or see a good deal I grab her.

Lil Miss Priss

I am not sure what to say except Certifiably Insane when it comes to Fenton. I love so many pieces in the Fenton Family that I cannot just choose one. I collect Ruby and Mulberry Overlay. And all the colored crests Cake Stands. I also love Silver Turquoise & Silver Rose.


I am definitely a collector of many things. I am obsessed with all things kitschy decor. I love 1940's Chalkware wall pockets of Mermaids, Sea Horses and Fish. I am currently redo-ing my pool house bathroom with an Enchantment Under the Sea Theme. It's so cute and my kids just love it.


TV & Music

So my New Year's resolution was to stop watching reality TV shows. So if it's not an amazing series with a great story or how to show then I am just not interested anymore. If I happen to be watching I am definitely only tuned into:

  • Pose (Very Interesting, Love The Fashion)

  • Big Little Lies (Read the book, but I love the show)

  • Dancing with the Stars (I love the costumes)

  • Football (S, M, & Th above everything)

  • Curb Your Enthusiasm (OMG I Die)

  • Real Time with Bill Maher

  • Queen Sugar (Oprah, leaves me hanging after. every episode)

  • Hallmarks Countdown To Christmas (Obsesssd)

Vintage TV

I love watching old black and white 50's game shows like What's My Line, Password, and Beat the Clock and Same Name. They just remind me of some very glamorous time.

I love Sinatra and Big Band 40's era music, especially while I work. I also like late 90's hip/hop. And I am fan of Classic Rock and Roll and Alternative while singing at the top of my lungs in the car. And House Music (Swedish House Mafia is my favorite & Calvin Harris), when I really want to let loose!

Disney Obsession

DIsney Ears DIsney Ears DIsney Ears

So, I have been in love with Disney practically my whole life, but after my mom passed away I damn near became obsessed with the subject and all things Ears related. She used to work for Disney when she was younger, And was even a model for all the Disney Training Videos. She really enjoyed her time at Disney and I believe this is where she learned all about being a kind but fair business woman. She always talked highly of the behind the scenes magic and how she could always incorporate her training from Disney in everyday situations She was amazing and I loved hearing about her Disney stories.

My favorite Character of all time is Minnie Mouse. I believe my husband is my Mickey and I am his Minnie. I read anything and everything about Disney. I am now more interested in the building of the park, the imagineers, how the rides and movies were made.

I am also obsessed with Pin Trading, so if. you pin trade....Let's Trade. Some of the themes I collect:

  • Minnie Mouse

  • Jiminy Cricket

  • Birds from the Tiki Room

  • Haunted Mansion ((Anything))

  • Alice in Wonderland

  • Fantasia ((Anything))

  • Club 33 & Blue Bayou

Minnie Mouse

And, I can't forget Jiminy Cricket, the littlest character with the biggest heart. I live my life through his kind words "Always let your conscience be your guide" you will never be lost if you always do the right thing.

I am finally forced to put this up because I have been flaked on 4 times, twice for receiving nothing and twice for not be rated. =( Most of my swaps are journal swaps which take about two months and a lot of creative thinking, so it really sucks not to get anything in return and even worse not being rated for the hard work you've done.

And then I opened it to find matching stationery?! I am in awe of this beautiful letterset you made that perfectly matched your letter.

Hello! I love your profile. Selfies are great!

AlishaK on Jan 4, 2019:

Thank you so much! You are so beyond wonderful. I received your box today and Me and my daughter both squealed with excitement and all of the wonderful goodies. Even my boys were able to enjoy the candy. You are so kind, sweet and thoughtful. Again thank you so much! Alisha K.

kiddomerriweather on Jan 4, 2019:

Thank you so much for all the goodies you sent me for the PF tag: I collect . . . send to the person above you. The sloth pins are TOO cute!!! I love the stickers and pens as well. You are the best!

mylove4craft on Dec 12, 2018:

I am so gobsmacked! First, I'm so honored to have received such a wonderful package from you! I am simply in awe! And second, WHAT a PACKAGE! I can't tell you how special you've made me feel! Thank you so much! The book looks awesome, the socks are SO COMFY, and the clutch is scrumptious!! Thank you so much! You're an angel!

Sessalouise on Oct 2, 2018:

I got the card and gift card last week, and I'm so excited to use it! Thank you so much. You go above and beyond in your swaps and I look forward to doing more! Have an amazing day! You deserve that and so much more!

renmagpie on Aug 13, 2017:

I cannot even begin to thank you enough for this incredible angel package that was waiting for me upon my return from camping this weekend. Your angel for the [Halloween Pen Pal and Surprise Swap}(http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/101380) was just...beyond the original swap description and beyond belief. I'm not sure which is cuter either...I don't want to use the sugar skull sugar because it's too cute...the magnet is already on my fridge, and the skull stamp is going to be brought into immediate service for an ATC I'm doing for another swap. Seriously, you are too generous. I wish I could rate you properly for this and give you all of the hearts. Thank you x a million. xoxoxo

MawBella on Jul 20, 2017:

I received your pocket letter today and it was SO lovely!!!! Thank you so very much. I also want to thank you for taking a chance on a newbie and having a swap with me. I so hope you like mine. Just remember that you are my very first pocket letter swap. And I do so hope that we do more together.

Just know that you made my day and I appreciate it. Thanks again and have a wonderful day!!

romyisa78 on Jun 28, 2017:

wohooo, your wish arrived today, and it really made my day. my 8 year old niece AMELIE has seen the unicorn washitape and felt so in love with it, that i gave it to her. but i kept the rainbow one. she was so happy and i should tell you that you are the nicest girl in the world to write with. and now she wants to learn english to write with you and trade unicorn washitape ;-) so a really huge super thank you from me and my niece. WEE LOOVE YOUUUU

Makeupbychiara on Sep 5, 2014:

I have only returned to Swapbot today after a very troubled couple of months personally and I just want to publicly thank you for your Angel, that I am only getting today since it had gotten lost at the post Office, remember when I told you the post man left me a note? He came today with it, he thought it was documents cause it was in a tube and I hadnt ordered anything... Well anyways! Thank you thank you thank you, you have been so kind and patient and you deserve a public Praise! Thanks again! Can't wait to try everything!

FrancescaP on May 28, 2014:

I've been staring at the screen for the last hour, trying to find the right words to express my gratitude... But words are not enough to tell you how humbled I am by your incredible kindness. It's hard to believe such giving persons really do exist, it's just like believing in Santa... And now I'll have to reconsider my position about the old white-bearded geezer ;-) Thanks a million, you truly are an angel and I hope life will repay you a thousand times for your generosity. <3 (A tiny little sign of appreciation is on its way to you, it can't compare what you did for me, but I just felt I had to thank you somehow)
