About Me

Salaam!

If you haven't received something from me, please let me know before rating.

I love curling up with a good book, drawing, knitting, Islam, house plants, watching movies, surprises, and taking walks at dusk. I am currently in love with ATCs, and I love anything hand drawn.

I live in Canada, so I'm used to having snow seven months out of the year. Spring makes me happy because it means the end of snow and wearing lots of bulky layers. I'm a substitute elementary school teacher, I get to meet lots of kiddos :) I used to live by the ocean, but now I'm living in a landlocked province, so I miss the ocean a lot. I have a kitty named Peaches. She's a big sook and likes to lay on me when I'm reading. I am also currently fostering a sweet bun named Magoo.

Favourite colour: Teal/ turquoise

Favourite season: Spring

Favourite animals: rabbits/hares, elephants, birds

Favourite foods: fruit, smoothies, mac and cheese, tea, coffee

Things I like..

Animals, stamps, bees, Islam, stickers, plants, pocket change from random countries, office supplies, Freddie Mercury, tiny houses, Pokemon (Charmander, Cyndaquil, Vulpix, and Eevee are my favourites), books (the older the better), Nikola Tesla, astronomy, little wooden elephants, Studio Ghibli, Disney/ Pixar movies, DC (esp. Batman), the ocean, sea glass, movies, sunsets and sunrises, birds, long road trips, Bill Nye, typography, Girl Guide/Scout crests/badges (I'm very active in Girl Guides and love collecting different crests for my camp blanket), cute felt objects with faces.

Dislikes: I don't like a lot of chocolate (a little is ok but I'm not a fan of dark chocolate at all), anything with pork or gelatin, smelly things, too much pink.. it's not a long list, I enjoy most things :)

Collections/ Wish list

Little wooden elephants, hijabs/scarves, used stamps, stickers (even the teacher ones), a 100 Serbian dinar note (it has Tesla on it), foreign coins, pretty paper, ATCs, items made of felt (I love soft things), "Greetings from.." postcards from Postallove sent from your country :) (so far I only have the Netherlands and Finland)

Favorite Books

books

I am addicted to books! I had to buy a second book shelf recently... I can't stop adding to my collection. I especially love really old books and science fiction. My first degree is in English lit, I got to do a four year degree reading books and writing about them... it was great!

I love reading science fiction and dystopian novels, my favourite is 'Oryx and Crake' by Margaret Atwood. I also love 'Fahrenheit 451' by Ray Bradbury, 'Walden' by Henry D. Thoreau, and 'Leaves of Grass' by Walt Whitman.

I'm always open to book recommendations. These are some other books I really enjoyed reading:

-MaddAddam Trilogy (Orxy & Crake, The Year of the Flood, MaddAddam)

-Brave New World

-Nineteen Eighty-Four

-The First Men in the Moon

-The Time Machine

-Childhood's End

-The Female Man

-Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep

-Tell the Wolves I'm Home

-Kingdom of Cages

-The Search for Wondla

-The Heart Goes Last

-Room

-Slammerkin

-Alias Grace

-The Sisters Brothers

-A Discovery of Strangers (and anything about the Franklin expedition)

Comment: Love it. My daughter and I have been doing cross stitching for years. I keep thinking about doing one for an ATC but haven't done one yet. You have inspired me to do one now. Thank you. Hope you are keeping well.
Response: I'm glad you are going to try making some! They're kind of neat because they're a lot quicker than the other cross stitch projects I've been working on haha so you can try out more cute ideas :P

Comment: Lovely birds! I have a friend who would love these little ones, she is bird crazy. Is this water coloured? I also did water colour on my bird as well.
Response: It is :) I think I use watercolour on 99% of my ATCs because it's so forgiving haha

Comment: Hello Peachy. Got your cute illustration from the Guides magazine. I love seeing what swappers find and use to make their postcard, it's unique and fun. I haven't been camping this year but I'm spending a lot of times in the urban forests near me. Today I sat on a wood platform over a creek and dipped my toes in the cool water.
Response: That sounds amazing :) The only cool water I've seen lately is all the rain :p
