About Me

Updated August 2019

Hello :) I am an esthetician by trade and own a small day spa. I love what I do but my secret dream is to support myself as an artist. I have 2 lovely daughters a 10 year old and a 6 year old. My husband is a professional chef and we live in California's central valley.

My daughters keep me busy! They are also an inspiration to do more creative things. I have a craft table continuously covered in projects and a husband that is sweet enough to ignore the mess.

I am loving swap-bot. Apparently I am a lot more creative when I have a deadline. I have had a great time making things for my partners or even just decorating the packaging that I send my swaps in.

Likes/favorite themes:

My swaps come from smoke free home. My wishlist, favorites and likes lists are just to give ideas of what types/styles of things I like. I am happy to receive used items as long as they are in good condition. I re-use packaging whenever possible.

I take a lot of time and care with each swap and I would greatly appreciate it if my partners would do the same.

I am always open to private swaps. The ones I have done so far have been absolutely awesome!

Thanks for reading. ~Lisa

Hi, I see you like dragons, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining Scales 'n' Tails? We currently have a dragon postcard swap which sounds perfect for you!

Thank you for the Disney goodies. I've started a Disney pin board and these will be a welcome addition to it (Cruella and Captain Hook!). I squee-ed when I saw the pennies! Nothing makes me happier than pressed pennies! I love the Ariel charm! It's so precious. I'll definitely be wearing that. I've never gotten the Maleficent Tsum Tsum, so that was exciting! You're the absolute best! You made my day. Thanks a million!

Thank you for the Valentine and the super cute snail mail stickers from the 'I wish . . .' PF tag. It was so good to hear from you. It's been a while. So looking forward to the Disney package. It was so sweet of you to think of me. <3
