Favorite Books

For years it was nothing but Stephen King and Dean Koontz but I am expanding to psychological thrillers now too. I always find the book is better than the movie, but still have high expectations when I do decide to check out the movie too, only to be disappointed. As time permits, I try to get through at least 1 book every month.

Favorite Movies

Again with the horror theme, although so few have made me feel the horror. Also action and thrillers too.. and the occasional Disney one as well. Jason Statham, yes I'm a big fan. Definitely not into the girly dramas at all, but since hubby is, I've seen more than I care to admit to. The last few years I've found myself enjoying watching movies at home, with the freedom to chill out in my pjs and pause the movie as I wish. Sometimes technology is great.

Likes/Dislikes

Likes: cute cartoon animal stickers, scenery like mountains and waterfalls, brain teasers, food especially seafood/appetizers/spicy dishes/trying new ethnic dishes, the colours green and grey, sun, outdoors, photography, craft supplies like washi/magazine cutouts/confetti/paper embellishments/stickers, summer, owls, fog, xc skiing, raccoons, sunsets, red wine, ghost stories, travel, water activities, fun socks, tapas/pintxos, snowmen, learning new things, road trips, penpalling, the beach, my cats, trees, fresh bedding, mondays, card games, watching hockey, thunderstorms, flip flops, campfires, architecture, fun mail, elephants, Suzy's Zoo, Tattered Teddy

Dislikes/allergies: dark chocolate, scented candles/lotions, pink/orange/yellow colours, lemon/watermelon/licorice flavours, raisins, coffee/tea, flowers/flowery things, reward stickers, Sanrio/Disney/Hello Kitty/Pixar/Diddl etc characters, garden gnomes, animal prints, gel pens, fish/bird themes, food with faces on washi/stickers, bugs/insects/butterflies, neon/pastels, eggs (it can be part of a recipe, but not a dominant one)

Favorite Crafts

Really, I'm not much of an avid crafter (although I keep buying more supplies) --except in the kitchen (if cooking counts as a craft). Used to do scrapbooking but not enough time/ambition now, so I use my supplies and skills to decorate outgoing mail or add little surprises to my letters. I am however totally inspired by all the amazing skill and craft ideas being presented here and want to explore that creative side again. I really enjoy the junk journal styles. For those who know, I do swap slams on a regular basis. I've been penpalling on an international scale for over 30 years now and enjoy travelling to meet the friends I've made through this hobby.

About Me

Moved from the big city to become a farm girl. Loving the different pace of life, being my own boss, and enjoying the quiet and open space. The long hours are so rewarding knowing we're helping to feed the world. I'm very calm and easy going by nature, love to send letters and notes all over the world to learn about different places/perspectives/ideas, and just enjoy the little things in life. It's tough enough out there without adding your own stress to the mix. Fun mail totally makes my day!

Sending/Receiving

I might have a slight mail addiction. I'm a stickler for deadlines and just love sending mail, so know that my items will always go out on time. That being said if you don't receive your items in a timely manner, please let me know because something obviously went wrong after I sent it on its merry way. I will happily resend so you aren't left hanging. We all know the postal system isn't perfect. We also have our specific likes and dislikes, even ways of interpreting the same ideas. I will never mark you down if you met the swap requirements. I am happy you took the time to invest in the swap and fill my mailbox with something interesting. I am very patient and know that mail service takes time, especially with the recent changes thanks to covid. I will mark my items as received within 24 hours of it arriving.

Comment: Thank you for the cool colour themed blue envie! Love the idea to make the blind bags each a colour....makes for a cohesive collection that is still random goodies. My favourite bits are the postcard with the little blue boy, the blue fiber bit, and the please deliver to labels. Thank you!
Response: Glad you enjoyed it. It works for assembling them but then you hope someone doesn't receive an envelope full of items in a colour they don't like. Haha

Comment: Thank-you for the lovely slams, cute stationery, and pretty stickers. It was nice to do an organized slam swap again.
Response: I'm glad it arrived okay! Sorry for my delayed response. I did see this when you posted but I guess I didn't acknowledge it right away. I'm torn between taking a break or not.

Comment: I wish I could give you a million hearts for your amazing package! OMG you spoiled me! I felt like a little kid at Christmas because there was so much stuff inside! I promise I will find a way to use EVERY single thing and even share with my penpals too. I also cut your beautiful decorated envelope up so I could glue the front of it into my junk journal with your note. Your package has made my entire weekend so much better! Thank you so much!!! ❤❤
Response: I'm so happy this made your weekend! You just never know when doing a blind swap. Glad you enjoyed my spring cleaning items!

Comment: Hi Andrea, oh wow!!! Thank you SO MUCH for this surprise parcel. Totally made my evening and night, and the contents also has this delicious smell. I look forward to trying out the teas and the gum. ^_^ And yes, you got it correct that's the kind of postal form I'd like collecting (or anything from the post office, Express Mail services, bank, etc. and especially when it's foreign). Almost thought this was a random surprise kindness package from elsewhere until I opened it and saw it actually came from Swap-bot! *O* Your parcel arrived today on Friday the 1st of March which also adds a nice start for this month as well as some of my rough conditions and times. Really made me more hopeful for the weekend for a new chapter of my life. Thanks for sending this and having it arrive at an interesting timing :') ~Kiyasu
Response: I love how happy mail can totally make a person's day! I enjoy trying to personalize my swaps and am thrilled to hear when they are so well received too

Although your circles were "ginormous", they won't be a loss. I've been thinking of using them on my masterboard index collages (maybe cutting them down just a bit)! Thank your for your happy mail RAK; a nice surprise in my mailbox today!
