About Me

UPDATE Life is starting to settle although we are still dealing with the aftermath of this crisis. I have had a few things come back to me for postage (a problem I have been having with the PO) as the person who helped me mail out the final bit of mail used the automated machine. I am so sorry and will accept any down ratings I receive. I am behind on ratings and have plans to fix it all this weekend. I hope to get back to a little bit of swapping soon. My creativity needs an outlet and my youngest misses the postcards.

***After an issue with our post office, my family has fallen into crisis. I can’t share details, but it has been very rough and time consuming. I have sent out everything on time but had one lost and one returned to me. Everything should be up to date and I have stopped signing up for swaps for the time being. I’ve had help mailing out so if you don’t get something, or get the wrong thing (really hoping that didn’t happen) please let me know and I will fix it ASAP. Thank you for your understanding.

My name is Lissa from Colorful Colorado and I am mom to 4 kids. I love creating things and am a bartender by trade. I play pool terribly and sing karaoke averagely. I can bake and cook with the pros and spend a lot of time with my fiancée and kids in the kitchen. I also do a lot of crafting which is how I was introduced to swapping.

We have two HUGE cats named Porter and Guinness weighing in at 20 and 14 pounds. We adopted them at this weight and they are our fur babies.

About Swaps

I promise to rate l although I don’t always get to the check the box everyday.

Also, I click the sent button right after I put happy mail in the letter box. Our mailman is usually an afternoon guy, but the lady that works a few times a week is a morning gal. I haven’t yet figured out the days, so your mail may have the next day postmarked, but I try to send out early.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy sewing , quilting, knitting, crochet, embroidery, making dolls, scrapbooking, card making, soaps, candles, baking, candy making, and cooking.

I am not awesome at clay, cross stitch, painting, or drawing but love receiving those art forms.

Food!

I truly believe in the power of food memories and have started creating a blog to share my food, recipes, and food memories. We are a family of chefs and foodies and food is how we show love. I love trying new foods and foods from other cultures.

We aren’t big on tomatoes or peas, but have no problem altering recipes to omit this items. I love recipes from your culture or heritage. Grandma’s biscuits, dad’s curry, or healing soup from your ancestors. If you send me a recipe and I make it, chances are I will message you a photo!

Currently we are super into Breakfast, Asian Flavors, Vintage home cooking, Tacos, Instant Pot, and fandom desserts.

Collections

We collect a lot of items in our small house and do not need any new collections started.

Funko Pops

Pez Dispensers

Dotee Dolls

Nini Dolls

Creepy Rag Dolls

My Little Ponies

Whimsical Salt and Pepper Shakers

Embroidery/Cross Stitch (hoops or canvas)

Gargoyles

Turtles

Octopus/squids

We love reusable items as well.
Homemade shopping totes Sandwich cloths, wraps, bags Non paper towels Crocheted dish cloths Spice jars

Wishlist

Some things that I would love

Soda Pop Tabs - my fiancé’s uncle collects them and turns them in for different charities. If you happen to be drinking a soda or beer while packaging mail for me, feel free to throw the tab in. Uncle Doug would be so happy!

Anything Halloween at any time of the year.

A recipe that is near and dear to your heart. Maybe tell me why it’s special to you.

Puns!! I love puns and bad jokes.

I would love copies of vintage pictures of people. Anything from first cameras time to the 70’s that I can use in ATC making.

My youngest would love to receive a postcard from Paris. Either a Paris theme or a PC mailed from Paris.

Comment: I am not happy about giving you this rating but I have not received this swap from you. I messaged you twice in November to let you know, but you have not even opened the messages I sent. It's 2 months since this swap was due. I will be more then happy to change the rating if you decided to send me the tag.

Comment: Hi Lissa, I am very sorry to give you this rating but I have not received this swap. I sent you a private message on November 10th but have not received a response since you have not logged in since November 3rd. I can see on your profile that you have been going through some issues, but I do need to give the correct rating since I have not received the swap. I am more than happy to change this rating if I ever do receive this swap. Thanks, Annabelle.

Comment: Love the postcard! Hard to see which the lie is. I don't believe you could touch the bums of sharks players, share bread with oprah, or that John Elway was a jerk at a charity event.. oh my!!

Hi Lissa! I just got your postcard from the NH group that you tagged me in. I like the card a lot, but your message on the back was also very sweet and thoughtful. I am sure she is smiling at you and feels very proud. Thank you for sharing that with me!
