It seems a shame to have to sneak to get to the truth. To make the truth such a dirty old nasty thing. You gotta sneak to get to the truth, the truth is condemned.




May 4, 2024: After a year of hiatus, I'm baaaack!

March 16, 2023: We regret that you have waited so long. We are doing our best to answer your message. HausOfImps, Inc. provides monthly swaps to over 5 different Swap-Bot users. As a result, we do have busy periods. We are taking messages in the order in which they came.

Please have handy your Swap-Bot username and any recent mail we may have sent you. This information will help us serve you better.


My old account is benevolentghost -- I cannot access it and was hoping to merge it with this one, and have been attempting to do so for about a year. As such, this obnoxious section remains until further notice. In the past few years, I have gotten my mental health in check and gotten better at communication, so I'm excited to be swapping again. I have made up every outstanding swap with active users -- my cumulative rating is about 4.96, which is my basis for joining swaps. I have no idea who my alien partner was because I can't see without being in the account -- let me know if it was you.


NB, ☞, etc: I was graciously rated a 5 instead of a 3 for a swap I made up in March 2022. My rating of 4.96+ stands even had this swap been rated a 3.

Curious about why I bold key information?

If you don't receive a swap of mine, please message me before downrating. I usually take photos and I'm happy to resend either way.

If I haven't rated you and you think I should have your swap, don't hesitate to message me. I don't find it rude.

Like easy and fun general swaps? Why not come over to Swapper's Paradise, grab yourself a drink, and pick up a swap or two in the swap shoppe? We'll never ask what's in your mailbox -- that's federal property, and that ain't our business! Our only business is providing good, clean swapping fun for YOU.

Please consider joining the group I run with @feverfawn if you live in the US!: Monsters, Myths, & Legends. It started as an ATC-only group, but we now host all types of swaps -- email, postcards, book and wishlist exchanges, assemblage, letter writing prompts, etc!


Greetings! My name is Lisa and I'm a 36-year-old woman living in Chicago. I try to keep my life pretty low-key and spend most of my time with my partner or my family. I like to read, craft, and send mail. I also like old Dateline episodes, bad Lifetime movies, and weird old Christian fraudster interviews and documentaries. I have taught ESL and adult basic education here and there, and I miss it dearly! Hopefully I can get back on track with something like that in the future. Doesn't seem likely any time soon, though. Or ever.

I am a Furby collector, a McLuhanite, a satirist, and the Original Rat Bastard (according to Gallup polls). I am an edgelord and I simply cannot pretend that this is not the case. I love philosophy**, comparative mythology, proboscideans, and avian dinosaurs. I spent an inordinate amount of time studying elephants and their counterparts in folklore. If I had a hall pass in my relationship , I'd only use it with Ötzi the ice mummy (revived) or Teddy Roosevelt (alive or dead on this one). I'm obsessed with fringe religious and political movements -- I seek to understand, and occasionally, to reflect back what I see. I like art and culture from all over the world. If I don't mention it, it's probably because I don't know much about it.

Meet the gang!


They are all precious to me and have very complex lives. Sunny (the baby) has gone to live with feverfawn, but The Family has also expanded.

I love to do writing swaps, especially ones that involve research, about shared "academic" interests. Also, about the paranormal and occult (personal experiences are good as well).

I do not send people unsolicited material related to my spiritual beliefs because that would actually be insane. It is a tenet of my religion to show respect for others unless provoked, which means that I do not bully, shame, attempt to convert, or go into spaces for other belief systems to try to make a point. I really don't care what other people do.

Thank you for reading and gettin' to know me!

And I can't believe I have to say this, but please no items with mold or spores, and please make sure your hands are relatively clean when making or putting together mail.

I have an immature sense of humor, but I have no desire to receive anything "erotic" or sex-related in nature that is intended to be taken seriously or is a relaying of someone's real life extracurriculars. Jokes about sex are fine.


I do not support doxxing. Doxxing includes sharing someone's full name, street name, APARTMENT NUMBER, city, and state. This isn't 4chan. Your behavior is pathetic.


Please be patient, I'm sure I'll edit this profile a million times. And, as always, please feel free to reach out if you'd like to swap, if you have a question or problem with a swap I'm hosting (or my group), or if ya just want to chat!

Hosting Style

I wrote something very long here earlier, but here is an abbreviated version:

I vet swappers, I check in with people, I mediate conflict if someone sends something the other isn't happy with. I angel when necessary.

All I ask from participants is open and direct communication, and maybe a little bit of mutual respect. I am very lenient with a lot of things (and totally nonjudgmental) as long as they're presented honestly and in plain language. I am not intimidating, I promise. Gonna be late? Tell me. We'll figure it out.

That's all!

Pokemon Go

Add me and my partner, then message me your username! We've both gotten a couple adds at the same time recently, but I think our FCs are in a couple other places -- I prioritize SB users for gifts and try to get him to do the same. :P Our postcards have "modern" Scatterbug attached.

Comment: Thank you sm for the wonderful stamp bombed postcard! I love all the stamps on it and it's very cool how you arranged them! Also I don't know how to say this, but the card did arrive with mold spores... Must have hitched a ride on Osiris-REx because I know you'd never send such a thing intentionally! Thanks for joining my sad little swap LOL

LyrasHope rated for Book Log: June 2024 on Jul 12, 2024
Comment: I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your book log. I laughed so hard in some points I had to stop and take a breath - you are a really good writer, and I hope we match up again in a book log swap because omg, this was fun. Cheers!
Response: This was such a kind rating, thank you! I was pretty anxious that my writing style may not be well-received, so to say this is a relief is an understatement. I'm also glad that no pried open/crashed their car into the mailbox and stole my letter -- what a tense few days. Here's to swapping again soon!
Comment: thank you so much for the space postcard - i also love the stamps, stickers and washi you used! i have never seen Peanuts washi tape before 🤩 the song is so interesting too, i don't think i would have ever discovered it on my own if it wouldn't have been for you. i wish to go to a rave one day!
Response: I am so glad that everything went over so well! I was almost out of my Peanuts washi and was so pleased to have something special to use it for. Thanks so much for the heart, lmk if you'd like to trade more postcards sometime!

SimplySuze rated for Clown ATC on Jul 1, 2024
Comment: Thanks for the gorgeous clown ATC. I am learning from the way you make different textures with simple lines. Background choices rad as well -- seem like the clown is lifting off the page. And great color palette! Also tx for the notecard tuck in -- will use!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! Thank you for the heart, and I'm keeping you in my thoughts for a speedy recovery <3
feverfawn rated for Extinct Bird Sketch in a Notecard on Jun 28, 2024
Comment: Oh my god...Oh my god??? I love this man, this Elephant Bird. What a cool guy. I love the drawing with him surfing it's very good. Love the facts and learning about him. Miss him...wish he was still around. The swap envelope was super cute too, really appreciate the extra attention to make this a fun swap to receive (& the extra envelope with the cute penguin stamps!) Tytyty ❤️
Response: This is a really nice rating :( Thank you. <3 I wish he was here, too. He was so tall. Imagine how big his surfboard would be. Imagine him laying down on the board like he's laying on a nest to paddle out to the waves. I wonder if he died being pulled into the undertow and did not have any next of kin. He was brave. One day we will join Him.
Comment: Thank you so much for the delicious locally roasted coffee - 3 different kinds to try ahhh I'm so excited! They all smell so good and I've never really tried coffee with flavors like these so it'll be a fun experience. Time for some French Pressies!!!! See you in The Circle 🤫
Response: The Circle is complete. I was going to write a note that Skedaddle was an extra because it was time for it to "skedaddle" out of my kitchen, but A said I was setting you up for it to be impossible for you to like it lmao. Really it just seems like it doesn't work as a cold brew. Lmk how they all go!
Jangonz rated for SP: Happy Postcard Swap #2 on Jun 26, 2024

Comment: Oooh, what a cool ATC! I love how you paper pieced it with the folds and everything. Thank you for the ATC, the awesome washi, and the curious cats cards. I love it all!
Response: Thanks for the heart and I'm so glad you liked everything! As soon as I saw the guy, I knew I must fold him. I am fortunate that it worked out because I had no idea what I was doing! I love these yokai swaps and hope to see you in future ones!
