About Me

Lisa, 26 from California.

I'm pretty shy and I have trouble with my ideas for artwork and haven't been confident in sharing, so this will work great for me as a nearly anonymous spreading of art, writing, and happy little things. I love to put together envelopes with a letter and stickers and little extras. My mom showed me this and has made friends through postcrossing and swap-bot. So, I'm trying to jump start this hobby. I look forward to receiving mail and sharing.

Favorite Crafts

crochet, knitting, needle felt, making miniatures (mini anything tickles my fancy), drawing, colored pencils, watercolor painting, journal/planning (stamping, stickers, washi tapes), color coordination, collage, making squishy things, painting nails, sending letters/mixed media in envelopes

Favorite Music

erykah badu, unknown mortal orchestra, patsy cline, etta james, bob marley (african herbsman album), joni mitchell, rush, arcade fire, joanna newsom, animals as leaders, wipers, chicano batman, reggie watts, new order, the strokes...

I am fond of...

getting mail *washi tape *stickers *pens *paper *collage *neapolitan ice cream (colors) *cookies and milk *miniature anything *ephemera, packaging *bicycles *animals *earth science *performance art *dance *yoga *plushies *squishies *music in headphones *chocolate scent *tiny flowers and plants *cooking dinner *harp music *piano music *whale sharks *playing overwatch *a good conversation

I am not so fond of...

religious scripture and symbols

Comment: What interesting facts about California. Thanks for all the really cool business cards. I am so glad that I got a partner from California, because one of my best friends is from there. She enjoyed the Pocket Letter just as much as me. Thanks so much!

Comment: This was a calligraphy art combo swap. I received plain white papers with names (myself and my boys) written with a marker with no thick and thin lines as seen with calligraphy. The letters were not connected, like elementary printing. The 'art' was dots and dashes of a silver gel pen along with, on some pieces, some tiny, messy, doodled circles which I think were supposed to be planets. Each letter had a partial shadow that didn't really match the letter nor was it a consistent shadow. Her note said (paraphrasing) 'I tried to do calligraphy but it didn't work out. I guess I'm more of a letterer.' But it wasn't nice lettering work either. She also said either in her PM or in her note that she intended to drop this swap but it was too late. I know calligraphy can be surprisingly difficult to learn so I sent a nice PM with some websites with instructions for faux calligraphy. I even sent a the name of a site with calligraphy exemplars she could trace if she wished to resend since what she sent did not satisfy the swap requirements. The coordinator is also in agreement that what she sent doesn't come close to meeting the standard of the swap. Lisa said she would not resend. I appreciate that she meant to drop this but she could have at least done her 'lettering' on some pretty paper or use cursive writing which would have more closely resembled calligraphy and art. Then she wrote back saying she thought the effort should be enough and would I please rate a 5. I replied I wouldn't without a resend which she continues to refuse. Now apparently I'm mean and take this too seriously. I've always rewarded efforts that meet the swap with 5s. Her 'effort' would have taken my 10 yo 5 minutes. I also told her that the rating system means nothing if we don't all use it properly. So I am obliged to rate a 3 as she sent nothing even resembling calligraphy! It doesn't resemble art either but since that is subjective, I'll base it on the lack of calligraphy. I've tried to be fair but she has no intention of trying to make this right.
Response: I won't be signing up for calligraphy swaps ever again.

Hi, Lisa! I'm one of your swap partners from "Profile Hello #1"! I noticed that you make miniatures-my mom and I have been collecting those for a bit now since they are so fascinating. :-) It seems difficult to scale things down to tiny size, so that is an awesome talent to have! I also noticed you like Rush, the band. I grew up listening to them in high school in the 90s. ;-) Anyway, here's to future fun and great swaps ahead! hallowkitty

Hey Lisa! Hope you are enjoying swap-bot!! I like mini things too! The other day I found a set of mini colored pencils, I think they were about an inch long!! SOOOO adorable I had to buy them even though they were $5!
