UPDATED June 28: I am officially all caught up with my ratings (except for one swap and I have messaged the member). If I haven't rated you yet, it is because I haven't received your swap. Feel free to contact me for a resend!
Welcome to my profile!
I'm a French Canadian woman in her early thirties, mother of a toddler, and full-time teacher.
I have been penpalling for many years and, 3 years ago, I discovered the joy of swapping! I just love preparing something for someone I don't know and knowing it will brighten their day. Even if a swap is sender's choice, I often take a look at my partner's profile to make sure I don't send something they don't like. I can't always accommodate, but I try as much as possible.
I take my swaps very seriously. That means that I always send on time. I actually go out of my way to send on time. Lost mail happens more often than we think! That's why I would prefer you contact me first and offer me a chance to re-send before rating me a 1.
For my likes and dislikes, see the sections below.
I don't read as much as I would like to. Got too many things to do and too little time. I try to read about 20 books a year. My go-to genres are romantic comedies, mystery novels, and thrillers.
I participate in a lot of book log swaps here. They are my favorite swaps on Swap-Bot because I get to discover new books I wouldn't have known existed otherwise.
I mainly watch French Canadian TV shows: Deuxième chance, Silence on joue, Un souper presque parfait, La voix, Les chefs!, Une autre histoire, Lâcher prise et District 31 (very late on that series though!).
Other shows I enjoy watching are How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Fuller House, Friends, Castle, Bones, Sugar Rush, home renovation shows, Border Security, and Queer Eye.
Recently started watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Really enjoying it!
I love paper crafting! Pocket letters (full and mini) and ATCs are my go-to crafts. I also do the occasional flipbooks when I have enough free time.
I do cross stitching in the fall and in the winter. I have a lot of unfinished projects in the basement that I'm looking forward to getting back into this fall!
I occasionally do some adult coloring as well.
Looking for inspiration on what to send me? Here are things I would love to receive:
Here are other things I like to receive but have enough of at the moment (however, I won't say no to them if you decide to send lol):
I'm usually not picky when it comes to swaps, but here are things I would prefer not to receive:
I thought these deserved a section of their own. My wishes are just that... wishes. No obligation to send!
Stickers (likes): dolphins, butterflies, owls, and frogs
Stickers (dislikes): Disney, religious, children stickers (ie Paw Patrol, Spiderman, etc.), planner stickers
Washi samples: LOVE all kinds, but right now I am looking for themed samples (ie books, dolphins, butterflies, etc.).
On top of swapping here on Swap-Bot, I also admin a few Facebook penpalling groups. Come take a look and join if you are interested!
You can find the links at the top of my profile!
The Canadian Snail Mail Café - A pen pal group for Canadian residents. We also have weekly wishes, tags, and giveaways!
Penpals Across the World (Ladies Only 18+) - A safe Facebook group for women to find penpals worldwide. What makes us different is that we only accept members who are looking for penpals anywhere. Country specific posts (like UK only, or Canada only) are not accepted.
Bookworm Penpals - This group is still rather small, but it has started to grow. It is a penpal group for women who also LOVE to read! Join us and share your passion of reading with other members!
