Favorite Crafts

I took a year off from swap-bot and now am ready to start swapping again! Mainly, I will be trading postcards and flat items.....

Love junk journals but so far i am only looking at how to make them and have not actually made one yet. I have completed a few magpie journals and quite enjoy filling the pages with my bits and pieces of daily life here.

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 like vintage looking paper and embellishments.

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, postcards and writing paper sets. Actually anything to do with penpaling! (Such as stickers, washi, stamps). My preference for postcards are for new, not vintage ones as I do not collect or send vintage cards. I find they are not usually in pristine condition and are quite small. Touristy cards are also not my favorite but can be used in swaps. I like my cards blank, in an envelope, where possible.

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

Tarantino films Clint Eastwood films .Downton Abbey

Favorite Television


CNN news,



Downton Abbey

Most British detective shows

About Me

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

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 Belong to Postcrossing and Postcard United so love to send and collect postcards. I like all kinds of cards but touristy ones are my least favourite and I find most postcrossers do not want a vintage card so I do not collect or send them. Recently, I have been less active on these sites since joining swapbot though as I like tradiing blank cards as much as written cards!

Tidbits about me:

-I have a Vera Neumann scarf collection of 300 plus vintage scarves

-Prefer rural life to city living.

-Like nature and camping, birds, animals.

-Love cats especially, but cannot have one at the moment....I like all cat related items.

-like Instagram, reading and eating out.

-prefer coffee or black teas

-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 am less an artist than a paper piecer.

-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 belong to our local book club.

  • 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,, postcards (not vintage), 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....

Larger envelopes for mailing postcards, 4 x 6 or larger

Fabriqueen rated for ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS POSTCARD #3 on Apr 4, 2020
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool postcard and history of Winnie the Pooh. My favorite character also is Eeyore and I have on my Eeyore shirt today. My hubby hates this shirt and I always thought he didn't like Eeyore. He told me about a month ago that it's not the character, it's that I wear it so much. Well, the shirt is only about 10 years old. There's a lot of life left in it. I got it at Walmart on sale for $5. "Great Value!" LOL! Hugs, Diane
Response: That is such a funny story - I hope you keep wearing it! I have clothes that are 10 years old too. Thanks for the rating!
