About Me

Wow, I do not know what to say as an introduction to myself. I have been married for 25 years to an incredible man, together we have 5 children. We live and farm in rural Alberta - the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

We recently acquired a donkey and I have fallen in love with this archaic animal. His purpose is to guard our sheep from wolves, coyotes and cougars.....but he's afraid of the sheep!

The sheep are another love of mine. Their gentle, accepting spirit is a testimony to me and doing chores around them always settles my soul. In regards to swapping....I will appreciate anything to do with donkeys or sheep. I would love to hear of your experience of either and enjoy these animals with you.

I am a dog trainer and a supervisor for volunteers who puppy raise guide dogs. I am also a gardener, encourager, camper, listener, cross country skier, hiker, family meal planner, scrape and wound fixer and bed time book reader. I am a Christian.

Tea

I love tea and drink it every day. Before I joined Swap-bot I only every drank Red Rose Orange Pekoe Tea. A few partners generously shared their tea with me and now I am hooked on experimenting with tea.

I have found out that I don't like white tea or fruity flavoured teas (except lemon). I also did not care for Chia tea.

I've discovered I like Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Green tea, Chamomile, and Mint teas. However my tea journey has just started so if there is a variety you think I would like - I am happy to try it.

Favorite Crafts

I don't craft but I am fascinated by the creativity of others. Send me your art - I would love to see it!

Likes

I'm including a wishlist because I appreciate a detailed list on other peoples sites. Please know, however, I am easy to please and generally enjoy all mail.

Things I would love to receive/wish list:

Flat Items: • Canadian postage, any denomination • Letter or note included in swap • Encouragement • Any Maggie Holmes paper or die cuts • Origami • Car air fresheners • Gift card to the dollar tree. Any amount.

I really have enough note cards, postcards, journals, notepads and stickers so please do not send as extras.

Craft Items:

• Cutting dies • Ink pads • Blending tools • Cardstock • Lace and ribbon • Sequence • Hot glue sticks • Double sided tape • Maggie Holmes • Glitter paper • Gold foil paper * Charms * Enamel dots * Bling

Personal items:

• Socks♥ • Gloves • Scarfs • Toque • Face masks. • Lounge wear • Bath and Body works • Lush

Kitchen Items:

• Measuring spoons • Paper to bake Mini loaves in. • Tea Towels • Dish clothes • Scented Candles • Cutting boards • Country themed • Bento Boxes * Oven Mitts

Operation Christmas Child

My family has the goal of filling 6 - 12 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child any donations to these boxes will be welcome.

Dislikes

I do not like skulls, occult, wicca, nudity or rudeness. Please no stickers - I don't use them.

One of the things I enjoy about swapping with such a variety of people is seeing the things they include in a swap. It tells me about the sender. If it is something I don't have a use for but still in good condition.....I will send it on again.

Christmas Box swap ideas

I thought I would add another section just for these swaps.

I would love craft room organization items. Any small or large containers would be helpful and used. If you have a system you love, I would love to hear about it. I have a brother scan n cut so any accessories to this machine would be so loved! I also have a big shot and would love cutting dies.

Out side/camping accessories. Our family is very busy outside so these items are always needed. Some ideas are buffs, carabinors, water purifying drinking straws, dehydrated meals, sporks, hand warmers, merino wool socks/base layers,mosquito nets basically anything that can be used hiking or rock climbing.

When we have time we also like to geocache so geocaching coins or travel bugs are always welcome.

Personal care items - anything from lush, burt's bees, dry shampoo, face masks, however, I don't use makeup.

For kitchen items, bees wax food wraps, oven mitts, tea towels, dish cloths, scented candles, coffee beans, organizational items.

If more ideas are needed, I am in need of new slippers, always appreciate new socks, I love lounge wear, use silicone chocolate molds of all sizes, use bento boxes and accessories, and I always appreciate kitchen accessories.

Thank you for reading.....

Comment: Wow, I love your card.. and all the matching extras!! I'll have to look into digital prints more! :) <3
Response: Thank you for the heart and rating. Yes, I love digital papers and not having to try to use those papers in a pad that I either don't like or can't figure how to use.

Comment: Love these cards! The raccoon is so cute! Where did you get this stamp from? He is cute but not too childish, if that makes sense. Thank you for a perfect swap!
Response: The racoon is a stampin up stamp from a set called someone special. I agree with you about him being cute but not childish. Thank you for the rating and heart!

What a nice surprise that came for me today - and, yes, there's at LEAST one item I'll be able to use out of your wonderful, generous de-stash. I'm sure this will keep me very happily busy for a long time. You've sent me things that I do love very much. THANK YOU!

Destash RAK -- Wow! Thanks for the box of items that you destashed. Loved going through it and thinking of how I could use alot of it. You are sooooo generous. Thanks again!!!!!

user6937 on Oct 14, 2021:

Your box of Destash stuff arrived yesterday and I love it; you're very generous (but I do understand the need to purge)! This was a great idea; I think I'll start early for next October - a lot of things could be added to boxes throughout the year :)
