About Me - Swap Info

I am originally from NYC and moved to Colorado 4 years ago right after college. I'm currently residing in Denver with my boyfriend.

I love dogs! I have a jack russell/fox terrier mix named Brody. He is truly the best dog I have ever had! We just got 2 hermit crabs name Skittle & Scooter.
I am totally a big kid that will never grow up, I love toys. I'm still a lil punk rocker but I'm totally a girly girl. I love to dress up and put on makeup etc. I have 7 tattoos and still have a couple piercings left I haven't taken out.

Music - I listen to mostly punk rock or classic rock. My favorite band is Cooheed and Cambria. I also like AFi, Dredg, My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Green Day, Rancid, The Offspring and many more.

Animals - penguins, piggies, octopus, pandas, snow leopards.

Colors - I love pink, blue, black, green and red. pink & green, pink & blue, pink & black, red & black.

Movies - Nightmare before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Beetlejuice, Willie Wonka, pirates of the caribbean, Finding Nemo, & The Grinch.

TV - Grey's Anatomy, Law and Order SVU, America's Next Top Model, Intervention.

Flowers - Hibiscus & daisies.

Random - I like skulls & crossbones esp. girly ones, Ernie from Sesame Street but not Burt. I love Paul Frank, Skurvy and Ms. Skurvy are my fav but Julius is pretty cool too. I like pirates and piratey stuff. I love Kidrobot stuff - I collect the fatcaps and mongers mostly.
I love Hello Kitty, My Melody, Little Twin Starts and Badtz-Maru.

I also still like lotsa 80's things I grew up with like Thundercats, Snorks, Smurfs, Old Skool Nintendo, Atari, Ms. Packman, Centipede, and Tetris!

Crafts - I sew - mainly purses, coin purses or pillows. I work with polymer clay - mainly heart pendants, magnets & votives. Resin pendants, shrinky dinks & soaps. I'm always looking to do and learn new things.

Jewelry - My ears are pierced but they are stretched so I don't wear earrings only plugs. I love necklaces, rings and bracelets - I have small wrists they are 6". Slightly bigger is fine, but not too much.

New Necklaces!

I've been working on new resin pieces and I'm beginning to add new products to both www.luxielou.com and www.luxielou.etsy.com.

These are fun. I'm really happy with the way they came out. I've only tried them in blue and red so far. I may try some other colors in the future.

I've also perfected making my pendants with real dried flowers in them. I've been making them in red, pink, white and yellow but I'm pretty low on them right now. I'm hoping to make more later on this week.


I love Brody!
This is my little Jack Russell/Fox Terrier Mix. He's 3 and is the coolest dog I have ever had, super smart and loads of fun! He looks so wise with his little white beard.

He is a ball freak and can play fetch until your arm falls off.

BFF Forever!

heehee done gushing over my pup!

I got these great piggies and ice cream cones...they are super cute!

Here's all of the lil things I have accumulated so far. I got the octopus and turtles in different swaps last month.
