About Me

Free Cat Hair With Every Swap!

I do market research at a homebuilding company, and Swap-Bot is a great creative outlet for me! I love to make ATCs and decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I am crazy about the sport of jugger, which I very much recommend checking out. I have two kitties who are my babies.

PM me if you want to do a private swap, need a new (sometimes slow AF) penpal, want excess decos (I usually have some), or want to ask me about jugger! :)

Swap Philosophy

I always try to go above and beyond in my swaps and aim for hearts. If you feel that I don't deserve a heart, I would genuinely like to know why. Even if it's negative feedback I want to improve my art and swapping. It drives me crazy to do what I think is a really nice job and feel like I've disappointed my partner!

I normally read profiles carefully and tailor swaps to my swap partners' preferences to the extent possible. I don't generally join swaps with tight deadlines, because I hate feeling rushed and I like doing art when I'm really in the mood for it. So I will try and do a nice job on your swap, and base it on your profile if I can, but it won't usually be sitting there all generically waiting to mail as soon as partners are assigned. Please let me know if something doesn't arrive. I will resend lost or missing swaps.

I don't think anyone should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. If hosts are expected to cover for flakers, they will do a better job screening them out. I hate to see situations where hosts ask for angels (or worse, the individual flaked on has to ask themselves) when it's the host's poor screening that caused the problem. I cringe every times I see a swap host saying they won't angel. Don't host if you won't angel! I will ALWAYS angel my hosted swaps. With that in mind, I am picky about screening people for my hosted swaps. I am usually willing to do private swaps with riskier people, but don't want to assume that risk for others in my swaps. I appreciate being notified if you see questionable swappers in my hosted swaps, but rest assured I will carefully look at all participants and ban anyone I find too risky, normally immediately before assigning partners.

Regarding Deco Books

I don't mind getting homers/last page decos unless it's contrary to swap requirements.

I've been getting a lot of decos recently in which I've already done a page. This is generally against deco swap guidelines, and is contrary to the point of deco books. Decos should have each page done by a different person, and sending them back and forth between the same people is a waste of postage! I don't want anyone reading this to think I am complaining about them specifically because it's happened a number of times recently. PLEASE check your decos and make sure the recipient hasn't done a page in them yet before sending!

I'd prefer not to receive decos that aren't in some kind of book form. Loose pages are a nice idea, but to me that's not really the same as a deco book. Plus it's difficult or impossible to determine who has already had it when "pages" go missing.

I often have excess decos to swap. Please send me a PM with your address if you are interested,

I'm happy to try and answer questions if you are new to decos (or swapping generally). I've been here a while and can usually help with basic protocol questions!

Themes I like

Anything hand drawn
Arizona themed
Dr. Pepper
Magic: the Gathering
Monograms/my initials (E.W.)
Penis drawings (they crack me up, it's "accidentally" become a collection)
Pokemon (esp. Magikarp, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Cubone)

If it's a pretty, well done ATC or deco I will probably love it no matter what the subject matter is. I am difficult to offend if it's not related to animal cruelty. I am generally amused by adult/sexual/nudity/swear word type themes. Particularly wieners. XD

SpikeyLisa rated for Profile Surprise ATC on Jan 21, 2017
Comment: Opened the lovely envelope while my mother was visiting and after a wonderfully giddy chuckle, she wanted to see what I had. "They're hypodermic needles", I heard with a fright to her voice. Nooo...it's a beautiful Saw Trap I told her. She didn't quite get it but I am very happy. Love the outhouse too. What a special package. Thank you so much.
Response: Haha so glad you liked it! :)

As a host I would hope that your criticism would be more constructive than critical, that being said I see no fault with my deco. I feel your comment was rather rude for two reasons. First you mention things can be discussed futher by PM then proceed to bash my book publicly. Second you alluding to feeling the need to rate me down simply because you do not like the theme I chose for MY book. I thought the idea rather ingenious. While I am sorry you cannot have fun with the idea, I do not apologize for my book. I have responded to your public tongue lashing, feel free to read my response. As I believe in "happy swapping" please feel free to ban me from your future swaps, as I would hate for you to ruin my fun within these swaps! All that aside I hope your day is going well.

There is a place in my city where you can literally find at least 40 types of olives (black, green, red....) stuffed with almost anything you can imagine. It's the best place in the world <3 If you ever come to Chile, I can take you there hehe :)
