About Me

Hello :) I am an esthetician by trade and own a small day spa. I love what I do but I long to have more time to draw, paint, sew, read and swap! I have 2 lovely daughters 9 and 13. My husband is a professional chef (no, he's never home to cook for us!) and we live in California's central valley.

I love swapping. 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. I have been on Swap-bot for over 10 years now! Thank you to everyone that has ever sent anything to me. I feel so fortunate to have received some truly beautiful and thoughtful swaps :)

Comment: This package is AMAZING!!! It's one of the best packages I've ever received (if not the best)! The embroidery will be on my wall all year round. I love the haunted house card (now I want a Silhouette) and tiny book. I won't write what I exclaimed when I opened the book because it's rated R. LOL! I was shocked and amazed at the intricate detail. I immediately texted a pic to my BFF. She was blown away as well. You absolutely spoiled me with the store bought gifts. I can't wait to use the bath gels. I'm in love with the psychic vampire protection mist. It smells heavenly and I love that there are stones in the bottle. Thanks for leaving me open to the sexy, blood sucking variety. That was very kind of you. LOL! I love the Daiso treat bags, too. So cute! Thank you so much for such a great swap. We should totally make this a tradition!

Thank you for the delightful Violette stickers with the Elena Barenbaum illustrations-- I love her woodland creatures so much! Looking through your profile, we share so many enthusiams, I'd love to do a private swap if you're ever interested. :) Just let me know and I can set it up. Do you currently have any Blythes or Pullips? I've never had a Pullip, but I've collected and customized Blythe dolls for many years, and they bring me much joy. Anyway, thanks again for the sweet surprises--I hope to swap with you soon! (Wonderful Wishes June wish list)
