About Me

I am very excited to be a part of swap-bot and enjoy it a lot. If there is an issue please send me a message

&& December and January are especially hard months for me. Getting mail and goodies from everyone in the swaps has really lifted my spirits. Thanks a bunch&&

I am a single mom of four. I teach mixed media art to children ages 6-12 years old and work at a community centre. I love writing and have published a couple of books. I won first prize for one of my poems a few years ago and had one of my stories published in Chicken Soup for the Soul. I also love art journaling and photography. I have 3 cats and a dog. Art journaling is my favorite.

I've been keeping a journal since I was 13 years old so its been over 3 decades. I have quite the collection now!

Favorite Books

I like variety when it comes to books.

Instead of naming the books, I will name some of the authors I like: *Stephen King *L.M. Montgomery *Charlotte Gray *Patricia Cornwell *Margaret Atwood *Sylvia Plath *Charles Dickens *J.K. Rowling *James Patterson

And I am sure there are others I just can't think of right at this moment.

Favorite Movies

Some of my fav movies are: *Stand by Me *Fried Green Tomatoes *A Christmas Carol *The Colour Purple *Gremlins *Anne of Green Gables *Goonies *One Magic Christmas *Scrooged (with Bill Murray) *Stand by Me

Favorite Television

I like mostly crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I am crocheting, writing in my journal or folding laundry. I don't usually sit down and watch a specific show.

Favorite Crafts

My absolute favourite is art journaling. I have been doing it a few years now. I especially like washi tape and things I find lying around, missing playing cards, using markers etc. I also put in stuff that I come across during my journey. For example if I go to a movie I will paste my ticket stub in my journal. Or if I get a really cool birthday card. So my journals say a lot about me. Some people say I suffer from "Stationary Sickness" and I am okay with that. That's the truth!

I also like painting and drawing and photography. I have had a couple of my own solo art shows and have sold over a dozen pieces but have just been into art the last couple years. Although I haven't created any new pieces in almost a year. I've been busy raising the kids, focusing on my writing and keeping balance using my art journal.

I also do a bit of crocheting. Mostly just scarves and baby blankets.

A Few Likes

I like: *Strawberry Shortcake (especially the vintage looking ones. I also like Huckleberry Pie).

*Owls

*Harry Potter (Harry, Hagrid and Dobby)

*Alice in Wonderland (Alice)

*Beauty and the Best (Belle)

*Fairies

*Vintage Looking items

*Used Stamps (to put in my art journal)

*Stickers

And I like pens, especially felt pens....

I love journals, especially hand made :) I like both lined and blank.

Beverages -I like mint tea, peppermint tea, lemon, hot chocolate, different favourite flavors of hot chocolate and apple cider :)

And snail mail, of course I love snail mail!!!

Hey you, thanks for stopping by! Just remember you are awesome!

Dislikes

  • Although I like stickers I am not a fan of stickers that are emoji's, reward stickers or food stickers.

  • solid coloured notecards (I prefer ones with an image/print)

  • plastic coloured tape (I guess its fake washi?)

*I don't have any allergies
