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

My family has the goal of filling 6 - 12 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child any donations to these boxes will be welcome.
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.
Please send postcards in envelope if swap allows it.
The only postcards I collect are recipe postcards. I love them. Thank you to everyone who has added to my collection!
I thought I would add another section just for this series of swaps as I plan to join as many as I can this year.
We always do a jigsaw puzzle during the Christmas holidays. Our family also enjoys playing games.
I am building a fairy/gnome garden so any accessories for this would be wonderful. Especially doors and/or solar powered lite items.
Other garden decorating items or accessories such as, gardening gloves, sunglasses/sunhat, row markers, self watering accessories, gardening magazines.
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.
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.....
