About Me

If you don't get a swap from me, please contact me :) !!!

Hi, my name is Joelle, I'm a 27 year old from Canada and I'm very french. English is my second language, so that's why I probably make so many grammatical errors in your swaps ;) Sorry !

I LOVE to craft ! After many years of university, a bachelor's degree and a masters degree, like one does because they have a student loan to pay, I got a day job. Crafting and Roller Derby is what have kept me from loosing my mind (even tho I really like my job at the moment, I do wish to work for myself one day).

Me and a group of friends started a "Craft circle" where we meet every week or so to craft and share our passion for the hand made, local products. Most of us crochet and knit, but sometimes one of us would come up with a new craft outside of our regular yarn projects.

I'm a HUGE movie and comic book nerd. I read the classics like Wonder Woman and TMNT, but I also fallow some of the newer comics, my favorites being Lumberjanes and Rat Queens.(Yes they are as amazing as they sound !)

I love anything geeky. I'm a Doctor who fan, as well as a Star Wars fan since I was a kid.

So here I am, trying to Swap with amazing people from all over the world :)

Postcards !!!

I'd say the postcards swaps are my favorites !

Weather they are naked and written on, or in an enveloppe untouched, I LOVE receiving postcards. I often send extra postcards with my swaps just for fun :) If you'd like to send me an extra surprise, send me a postcard !

If you don't know what to write, here are a couple of things I like reading about :

  • 5 facts about the place where the card is from.

  • Travelling tips from your area! What are the must-sees around you?

  • Did anything important happen in your country lately?

  • I'm interested in politics and world news, so do tell :)

Things I like :)

Wish List :

-> Nice stationery paper

-> PostCards

-> Souvenirs from where you are from !

-> Teas and herbal tea

-> Coffee

-> Patches, pins

-> Washi tape

Things I like :

Foxes

Vintage

Calligraphy

Maps

Bow & ribands

Disney and Pixar

Wonder Woman and Comic books

Photography

Boats, anchors and anything sea related

Embroidery and needle work

Origami

Anything Hand made Or Upcycled

Doilies and lace

Flowers, water colours

Polka dots and stripes

I'm a very easy to please person and I like too many things to list them all, I appreciate effort, details and originality :)

Favorite Crafts

Where to start ?

I'd say what I'm best at is anything that involves yarn. Knitting, crochet, felting ... But I also do cross-stitch, embroidery, DIY projects, paint, paper craft such as origami...

Crafting is what keeps me sane and allow me to be creative !

Please write me about your crafts !

Reduce and Reuse

I love up-cycling and making new stuff from old stuff. Up-cycling is where I can be the most creative. I often turn bed sheets I find in thrift stores into dresses no one would guess I made myself.

Reducing and re-using what we have is one of the most important role we can play in saving the environment.

Roller Derby

Yup, I'm a derby girl.

I've been playing since 2013. I'm currently the captain of our home team here in Moncton, New-Brunswick, and my love for the sports just keeps growing !

If you have a Roller Derby league in your home town, make sure to check them out :)

Please don't send

I would prefer if you didn't send me those things;

• anything religious, please don't

• Pamphlets / promotional stuff

• gore / horror / blood

• anything sexist / racist

Comment: Thanks for the great Lobster postcard! Did you know. that in Massachusetts, there was a law, that prisoners could only be fed lobster 2-3 times per week? At that time, it was considered trash food! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Thank you for the lovely Beauty and the Beast postcard! Fall is also one of my favorite seasons (okay, I love them all but Fall and Winter are my most favorite) and I'm looking forward to it, too! In fact, it's already chilly here and the leaves are starting to turn. Happy Sending!

Hi there Jolee

This is for the Quick friendly Profile comment

Hoping your strike up there is short and over soon!

It must be great to have a weekly craft group! I also love crafting and honestly say it helps me keep my sanity! LMAO I also use a lot of recycling in my crafts and everyday life. It is like having an extra challenge!

We had the roller derby leagues her back in the 70’s & 80’s. My family loved them but the intrest seems to have died out. Miss them. When the kids were smaller we used to go every week

Hello, Joëlle!

Yikes! Hope the postal workers don't go on strike!

How's the weather in your neck of the woods? I want to visit Canada one day...maybe not when there's snow but when the weather is cool. It is so hot and humid here...ugh! I'm thinking Vancouver might be cool bc I do like a city...but I'm open to recommendation if you have any to share :)

I loved your profile. I wish I could craft...I'm so envious of people that can cross-stitch, knit, etc! Loved your comment about reduce and reuse - very true! Have you ever checked out: https://www.recyclebank.com? Great website with good articles.

Nice getting to read about you! Happy Swapping!

I am one of your partners for the Quick Friendly Profile Comments. I enjoyed reading your various interests. Right away, I thought about how fun it might be to have a group of friends who met to do crafts, or laugh and create. You are starting off on the right foot to be with such like minded friends. What joys you will have. Making art gives you an opportunity to grow in endless ways.

Roller Derby! Yae! My town is far too small to have a derby here, but I thoroughly applaud your skating skills. It is no small task to skate on wheels. You don't say anything about the gear, however, I imagine a helmet, knee and elbow protection. What a vision you must make. Stay safe and have a lot of fun!
