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,

Vera,

CNN news,

Goldrush,

Seinfeld.

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....

Comment: Wow! What a joy it was to open your sweet, thoughtful package today. The pocket letter is beautiful! This swap is the first time I have ever made one and I see many more ahead. They are so much fun. Your nice note and all the extra goodies were so thoughtful. A bit of relaxation with some hot tea and wonderful incense is EXACTLY what I need today. Thank you so very much for such a special swap. All the best to you.

Hello :) pocket letters are my most favourite thing as well :) looking forward to getting to know you

Hey, you just had your Swap-Bot anniversary last month! \0/

It's nice to meet you through the GettIng to know you swap. Letter writing is my favourite too, next to mail art and junk journalling.

I had to google Vera Neumann's scarves... WOW! A whole new world is opening before my eyes. That's the best thing of meeting new people don't you think?

The cats said to say HI and maybe I'll see you in a future swap!

"Getting to know you" swap:

Hello! I enjoyed reading through your profile and getting to know you. I too love paper crafts, but some how pocket letters is not my thing. I mean, I like to make them, but the filling pockets with goodies I don't get. Love ATC's though and I just feel that pocket letters are a knock off just to get those goodies. I love sending goodies, just don't like sending them in PL. Oh well, have a nice day! ;)
