About Me

Hey there, I'm Amanda, I live in a small town near Toronto Ontario Canada.

I am an artist and art teacher. I love making collages with all of the beautiful papers and things people generously swap with me!

I love cats, the countryside, spending time in my garden, going camping, concerts, bookstores, hiking, painting outside, playing volleyball, road trips and beach days.

I love swap bot and am grateful for all of the swaps I am able to be a part of and the people I get to connect with.

My heart lives in Rock n Roll!!!!

I am a little bit obsessed with Movies, way too many to mention but a few faves would be: Now and Then, Little Women, Rent, The Greatest Showman, La La Land, The Giver, The Never Ending Story, The Goonies, Scott Pilgrim, Juno, The way way back, The Princess Bride, Lady Bird.

Favorite Television

I love all kinds of TV.... Schitts Creek, Degrassi, Big Brother, Handmaids Tale, Gilmore Girls, Saved By The Bell, Jimmy Fallon.

Favorite Books
