WHO IS CONNIE

Profile updated September 2018

*Please use SwapBot message rather than email to contact me. I don't check emails often.

I am a pinterest junkie and spend way too much time there. I own way too many shoes, soft scarves and purses. Yet, I feel I doesn't have enough and just have buy just 'one more'

I am employed full time and work hard, but relax even harder at home. Walking, spending time in nature, crafting and playing scrabble on my phone until all hours of the night are some of my obsessions.

I've embarrased myself so many times and have done so many odd things...I now don't get embarrased easily. Probably why I like to hear about other's moments. I also enjoy hearing about another's day to day life.

Reading reading used to be a passion of mine, but felt I didn't have enough time, audio books were a definite life changer for me. Now I have the best of both worlds. Reading and crafting at the same time!

POSTCARDS/NOTECARDS

Post cards...I love them all, store bought, zazzle, homemade.

I keep all postcards and sometimes go through them, remember who they came from, how far they have traveled and admire the pictures, artwork, etc.

Ideas to write on the back of the written/sent naked cards...poems, quotes, about your day, why you chose this card for me,etc.

I welcome postcards sent unwritten in envelopes anytime.

And colouring postcards, both coloured in and to be coloured.

Note cards....

I tend to use a lot of note cards in my swaps. Store bought or homemade. Flat(ish) cards work best. The big lumpy ones are pretty, but hard to send out.

Stationery, stationery, stationery. What else can I say :P Writing paper, cute envelopes, memo sheets, etc. I have plenty but feel like it's not enough. Could that be the beginning of my hoarding career?

One of her favourite past times is going thrift store shopping for postcards, note cards and stationery.

.

CRAFTS

ATC's and handmade postcards are some of my favourite swaps. I am currently in the hand drawn/colouring phase and will probably move on to collage again...one day.

I am currently organizing all her cross stitching floss and things. It has been a long time since I picked up a needle and floss, but is currently another hobby again.

I got tired of quilting and is thinking of taking up crochet again. There will be a time when I will go back to pick up on unfinished crafts.

Twenty years ago I made a plastic canvas doll house as a Christmas present. It was many, many hours of work and turned out pretty awesome.

ABC's

*Bits of trivia, articles of interest, inspirational quotes, stories, etc. Funny everyday life quotes or stories. Short stories printed or cut from magazines, romance, mystery, funny, Chicken Soup, etc.

TEA AND EDIBLES

Twice, last winter I was sent an expired tea with a bug or two inside. She has become wary of tea and edibles sent with swaps and now just toss them, so its probably best not send.

ZEKE

Zeke is my furry black and white sidekick. He is an older cat with high anxiety.

He follows me around like a little puppy dog and insists on helping with swaps and packaging.

I apologizes in advance if Zeke includes a cat hair or two in the swap, though I do my best to keep it out.

Christmas Swaps

Ideas for the Christmas advent swaps...

Any interpretation of the ABC's you can come up with are wonderful.

I have Raynaud's Syndrome. I cry every winter, :( , not really, but some day's I sure want to. It affects my arms and legs as well....So, you can't go wrong with mittens, socks, etc. Hand knitted, crochet, sewn.

For work I use Lanyard key chains around my neck. I like to be a little different so I have made some out of cute material, someone once beaded one for me and had one made from some soft type of rope.

I would love to receive handmade ones or unusual or beaded or??

Even if the swap says no handmade items. I will be happy with handmade socks, lanyard,etc.

Comment: It finally arrived!!!!!! Thanks for an enormous bag full of great goodies Connie. I'm just sorry for the angst you had thinking this marvellous package got lost in the mail. I'm glad it finally made it. No explanation on the package when it arrived and doesn't look like it was tampered with so I'm not sure what happened. I'll put all the loot to good use :-)
Response: I'm happy to hear you recieved it and can use the items. I did resend another, :) enjoy!

I read your profile and I love how Zeke 'helps you' too. With my cat Ava, she will nudge my hand to remind me that she is there and deserves attention :P I imagine I have sent things with a few stray strands of fur too! Yay for fur-babies.
