Favorite Crafts

I like to make Pocket letters and love all things to do with paper and paper crafting.

Love junk journals but so far i am only looking at how to make them and have not actually made one yet.

I have just discovered dotee dolls since joining swap-bot and hope to make and receive one some day. They look so cute...and each one is so unique. It would be a treasure for me to own one.

I really like vintage themes.

I do not follow Disney movies so I do not really like the new Disney themes or characters.

I like woodland themes, animals, flowers, birds, artsy patterns and my washi tape collection is slowly growing so I am finding more uses for it....like everywhere!

I have a few hand punches but no sophosticated crafting tools/machines. I would be interested in exchanging or receiving punched paper.....I have a mason jar, egg shape, butterlies, small flower, daisy and batchelor button shapes that i could offer to you. I like all colors of paper.

I love notecards and writing paper sets. Actually anything to do with penpaling! (Such as stickers, washi, stamps)

Favorite Books

Historical fiction, Mysteries, Crime drama, Also Vintage Illustrated childrens books such as Beatrix Potter, Winnie the Pooh, Aice in Wonderland, Dr. Seuss

Favorite Movies

Pulp fiction....I don't get to the cinema very often.

Favorite Television

Dancing with the Stars,

The Voice,


CNN news,



Most British detective shows

About Me

My name is Carol and I live in the Province of Alberta , in Canada.

Please note, if you have not received your swap from me, please let me know before you rate me down as I always send by the due date and I always rate others as soon as I receive their swap....I want to always maintain my 5 rating! But I know that things can be late or disappear in postal systems so I would appreciate a message and I will gladly resolve the swap.

I Like to write letters (& receive them). Right now I have penfriends in Germany, Russia, Canada, Ireland, Taiwan and USA.

I Belong to Postcrossing and Postcard United so love to send and collect postcards. I like all kinds of cards!

Tidbits about me:

-I have a Vera Neumann scarf collection.

-Prefer rural life to city living.

-Like nature and camping, birds, animals.

-Love cats especially, but cannot have one at the moment

-like Instagram, reading, walking and eating out.

-Drink too much black coffee instead of water...I also like tea.

-Have one sister and one brother. (And one husband.)

-Love Russian culture, their folklore patterns, matryoska dolls, art, etc.

-like to visit museums, National parks and UNESCO sites.

-I am new to ATCs but find them fun.

-I m retired but have had a career as a municipal worker, also worked for a short time as a community librarian so I do love books, real books, not e-books.

  • I like frilly, girly things and also enjoy thrifting, going to auctions and just general browsing in general. shopping, does not necessarily result in purchasing!

  • i do like the vintage "look" and antiques, especially glassware and dishes.

  • love all stickers, washi, paper, tags, magazine cuttings, diecuts, punches, buttons, ephemera, cards, notecards, and pretty much any flat items as long as they are NEW and CLEAN. Please only send items that you would be happy to receive yourself. That is how I put together my swaps for sending out and would appreciate the same consideration from anyone sending to me.

I am very easy to please and am happy with whatever you choose to swap with me....

What a great train to come down the track from a friend in Canada. A PC of a place and an event on my bucket list that I can look at daily and dream about. With a treasured note of things in common and good tidings - I say thanks and Let's ride it together!!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs and Happy Holidays- Mary
