About Me

Profile updated October 2019

I had been away for medical reasons and returned home to a full basket of swaps to open and rate. All those pretty envelopes and postcards sure made me smile.

Please let me know if you are still waiting for a rate or a swap from me.

*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 don'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 embarrassed myself so many times and have done so many odd things...I now don't get embarrassed 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 my 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 my cross stitching floss and things. It has been a long time since I picked up a needle and floss, but expect to pick it up again this winter.

Some times I will work on a quilt block or two. I am looking for a portable craft and thinking I may try a hand piecing block.

I have tried to crochet once before and have picked it up again. I can't tell you how many times I have crocheted a few rows and taken it apart again. I'll get the scarf finished one day.

I still have a lot of unfinished projects to work on. I really should stop buying supplies or starting new projects until I have my current supplies used up and projects finished. But I won't.

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

TEA AND EDIBLES

Twice, last winter I was sent an expired tea with a bug or two inside. I have become wary of tea and edibles sent with swaps and now just toss them, so its probably best not send. If I'm in a swap where sending tea is a requirement, please send in original wrapper and not outdated.

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

Looking forward to meet you. Happy swapping!!

Comment: What a very wonderful letter the postwoman brought today! First i took time to read all the great quotes on the envelope. I felt excited to open it - you put much effort into creating this swap and i feel really moved. I am looking forward to diving into your selection of autumn poetry; a good cup of oolong tea by my side. Today it's windy and yes, summer's almost gone. A huge thank you, Connie.

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.
