About Me

Last updated September 2016 (WIP)

Hello again everyone!

I know it has been a while, but we have been insanely busy in life. I am starting my own business related to crafts and that has made me wish to become active on Swap-bot again.

Canada Post Strike will not happen for at least 2 years! Glad I can get swapping..FINALLY! LOL :)

(When I figure out how to add pics again, I will..lol)

My Likes

  • My favourite colour is brown, followed by any Autumn colours.

  • I love to reuse items in Arts and Crafts. I enjoy Mixed Media, ATC's, Altered Books, Altered or handmade postcards, Collage, Assemblage, Crochet and Sewing.

  • I do not need store bought postcards, but would love homemade ones! Or altered cards too.. just not regular ones, lol.

  • I have recently starTed my own business. As part of this I purchased 3 storage lockers filled with Art and Craft supplies along with many very cool vintage items like Letterpress drawers, postage stamps, NIB playing cards, rubber stamps, Litho print cards and much much more (sooo much more...lol.) I do not have a need for Empherma, but I am bound to have something you need or would love!

  • I make almost all of our household soaps and cleaners.

  • I love handmade :) Im really open to anything YOU have put some thought, time and effort into. Bonus if you reuse something in some way!

Things I Like..

I hope you do not mind, but I would honestly prefer if you do not send any epherma (unless of course I sign up for a swap which includes this.) I have so much of every style and kind. I would prefer you make something and send that... but here are some ideas...

  • Foil Pens (not foils themselves please.)
  • Posca Paint Pens
  • Distressing Inks
  • Alcohol Inks
  • Special tool you love (could be a brush, a pen, an ink, marking tool etc)
  • I do not wear earrings, but will wear rings and necklaces
  • Gelli Plate
  • Brayer
  • DIY kits (I realize these will sometimes have empherma..no worries!!)

Please do not send dryer sheets with items. Thanks :)

My Family

I have been with Steve for apx 17 years! We are not married but we are common law and have 2 wonderful boys who are 13 and 8.

We have a dog named Missy who is half Whippet and half Old English Bulldog.

We have 3 cats named Randy, Kitty Mama and Hemmingway. Hemmingway is a polydactyl cat.

Our brood tops off with 4 hens, named by the kids who are just over 2 years old and still laying up a storm. Their names are Madonna, BW, Lava and Meg.

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!
