My Flickr Photos
Please excuse any broken images on my page. I am currently in the process of re-hosting my images elsewhere and re-linking them once I'm done.
First, I would like to say, if you have not received a swap from me, please let me know! I am very diligent on sending my swaps! If you have not received one, I will do everything I can to remedy whatever may have happened!
I like to try to reuse packaging as much as I can, so you may receive a package that looks like it's made a few trips.
Hello! My name is Laura. I am from Colorado, USA. I have a bachelor's degree in computer arts with a foundation in traditional art. I have been a teacher since 2015. I was a K-12 art teacher 'til Nov. 2020. I am currently a middle school STEAM and film arts teacher for a local charter school.
I love mermaids. In my spare time, I like to play video games, love all things arts & crafts and am currently learning stained glass.
I am a SCUBA diver. My boyfriend and I got our certifications together the beginning of 2016. Our last dive was in Hawaii off the coast of the Big Island for a night dive with manta rays. If you ever have a chance to do that, I highly recommend it! It's also great for snorkelers from what I hear, but I was down at the bottom of the ocean from the SCUBA side when we did it. =) My boyfriend and I have been together since March 2011.
I have 5 swimmable mermaid tails (2 Finfolk, 2 Mertailor, and a knock-off Fin-Fun tail. I am part of a local group that does free events and fundraisers for kids around our local area.
I love the work of Chris Sanders, who just happens to have also worked on several of my favorite movies and was the designer for 2 of my favorite characters (see below). I just love his style. The fact that he also illustrates mermaids doesn't hurt, either. I also absolutely adore art nouveau, mermaid-related or not! Beautiful and flowy!
I have 2 cats. Both are bengals, which are hypoallergenic, so if you're allergic to cats, you should be ok! I don't tend to let them in my craft room much anyways. One is a traditional tan/gold coloring with green eyes. The other is silver. They are named after characters in Firefly (Kaylee & Hoban (a.k.a. Wash)). After they developed their personalities, I should have named them Saffron & Jayne... haha.
If you would ever like a private swap, just shoot me a message!
Seriously... go check out their shops and just TRY to not blow all of your money!

I'm sure there's some I'm forgetting.

I know I'm forgetting some, but I'll add as I think of them. There's just so much cute out there!!
My favorite color is bluegreen.
When bluegreen isn't available, I like blues and greens (go figure, right? haha). I prefer blue if I DO have to pick.
I also like the color combinations of a dark brown with light colors like bright green or light blue or pink. I like reds with blacks, too.
Typically water-based creatures, but I also love hummingbirds, butterflies, cats (ones I can pet or hilarious memes), goats, and foxes. Really... I love all animals, but those are the top of the list. ;)
Oh yeah!! And narwhals!!! (Yes, they're "water-based", but they deserve their own mention. Teehee!)
Minecraft, Subnautica, Portal, Lego games (any), Pokemon, Skyrim, Dr. Mario, old school Mario games, Fallout, Katamari Damacy, Tomb Raider, Assassin's Creed, Zelda
If there's ever a time that you might need a little more time on a swap, just let me know. I'm a very understanding person. Communication is always welcome! If there's no communication, though, I'll end up rating for what I DO know.
