About Me

PLEASE --- If you have not received a swap from me, PLEASE let me know so that I can re-send! I am not a flaker, and I hate having unfinished swaps hanging over me! Thanks!

Hello, I'm Anne-Marie! I'm 30-something and single, born and raised in Quebec, Canada. In October 2022, I bought a bookstore! In my "spare" time (which I haven't found I had that much of since becoming a business owner), I enjoy reading, crafting, surfing social media, watching TV/movies/YouTube, and writing snail mail! :)

I also enjoy baking and decorating cakes and cookies, on occasion. Once upon a time, I took a French pastry course and thought I'd like to have my own bakery/cake business, so I have several wedding cakes under my belt, but things change!

Favorite Crafts

One of my favourite crafting mediums is polymer clay. I (try to) make Christmas ornaments to sell at local craft fairs every year. I also make jewelry, cake toppers, figurines, etc. Anyone interested in private polymer clay swaps, let me know!!

I enjoy crocheting. I haven't really made anything more complicated than afghans and hats, but it's fun. Something to do in front of the TV in the winter, althought I haven't touched my yarn and hooks for well over a year.

Paper crafting... I have been playing around with pocket letters again and having fun with that. I adore anything stationery (Post-Its, memo sheets, letter writing sets, cute pens, notecards, postcards, washi tapes, stickers...).

Favorite Books

I love reading! I'm currently working toward a goal of reading 52 books in 2023.

My favourite genres are murder mystery/crime fiction, young adult (all of them, but especially romance and fantasy), and girly fluff reads. I also enjoy a good middle grade/ children's book (Harry Potter, Nevermoor...)

Some of my favourite authors are Louise Penny, Cecelia Ahern, J.K. Rowling, Erin Morgenstern...

I don't like choosing favourites (maybe you can tell), but if I had to choose a favourite book, it would be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I love the magic and all the imagery.

Favorite Television

Currently watching Castle, Ghosts, Sweet Magnolias, and The Flat Share.


I collect Harry Potter stuff! I am a Ravenclaw - that's the blue house, with the bird mascot. :)

I also collect Funko figurines! I have several Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and Disney characters. I think they're really cute. LOOKING FOR: Funko Pop Jacob Kowalski (Fantastic Beasts), Funko Pop Lara Jean (To All the Boys), Funko Rock Candy Pocahontas (Wreck-It Ralph 2).

I love handmade Christmas ornaments! I have a collection of crocheted snowflake tree ornaments. I also really love anything with gingerbread people.


Themes you can (almost) never go wrong with: * cupcakes * polka dots * unicorns * mermaids * rainbows * cats * cacti * florals * books / bookstores / libraries

Favourite colours: * pink * turquoise / teal * purple * gold * mint green * peach / coral


Unfortunately, I DO NOT LIKE coffee or tea. I will on occasion drink a hot chocolate or apple cider, but for the most part I just prefer cold drinks. :)

However, if it is a swap requiring you to send a hot beverage and you only have tea/coffee, just send what you have. I can always pass them along!

I adore chocolate, but I don't really like chocolate scented items. I also don't like fruit & chocolate flavour combos. Chocolate & mint is great, tho ;)

I like most floral scents EXCEPT rose and lavender.


For profile-based swaps...

  • Pretty stationery sets (matching letter sheets & envelopes)
  • Anything Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts (I'm in Ravenclaw)
  • Enamel pins (especially Disney pins)
  • Washi tapes
  • Chapters/Indigo gift card
  • Book quote items (art prints, jewelry, notebooks, etc)
  • Unused Canadian postage stamps (new or vintage)
  • Cute magnetic bookmarks
  • Treats from other countries (I don't care much for licorice, but my family members do, so if it's all you have, it's ok ;) )

nigatsubebe rated for LSRUS - Love you Friends # 1 on Jul 27, 2022
Comment: Hi there! Glad to meet you! I'll write back soon. Congratulations on having a birthday soon. It's a free trip around the sun! I also... probably collect too many things, but lately I've been significantly reducing them all. I 'cope' by having folders of photos + decor instead. <3
Response: I am also trying to reduce, but it's really not an easy task. Looking forward to hearing from you! :) Thanks for rating!
Comment: Thanks for your email :)
Response: You're welcome, thanks for rating :)
Comment: Thank you for your quarterly check-in! Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is an awesome series! I definitely have a soft spot for the first book and now I feel like re-reading it! Good luck with the new quarter!
Response: I had watched the movie before reading the book, and definitely had to rewatch it after reading the first book! It's definitely the best in the series :) Thank you!
KSENiA rated for ESG: Things I Collect on Jul 13, 2022
Comment: Thank you for sharing. Both collections look awesome
Response: Thanks! And thank you for the heart!
SatisHuman rated for ESG: Things I Collect on Jul 7, 2022
Comment: Very interesting collections!
Response: Thank you :)
Obstminkerl rated for ESG: Things I Collect on Jul 6, 2022
Comment: Thanks for showing your collection. I love books too! Oh and what a huge Funko Pop collection you have! I only have one FP and that's Queen Elizabeth, because I think it's so cute.
Response: Love that! I don't have Queen Elizabeth, but she is definitely adorable, Is it the one with the corgi?? Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I am really in doubt by reading the books from Bridgerton. I heard they weren't that good. I dunno yet. Thank you for sharing!
Response: I've enjoyed the first 3 so far. They are a bit repetitious, so I can see why people wouldn't enjoy them. And the show is definitely better. But, as I said, I've been enjoying them. :) Thanks for rating!
Hugsie86 rated for LLU 2021 Yearly Wrap-up on Jan 27, 2022
Comment: Good job for reaching your reading goal! I have heard of a few books you mentioned. Beach Read was not a book I could get into though. There are a few you named that are on my TBR like The House in the Cerulean Sea and books by Louise Penny (I want to give them another shot).
Response: Realized I never responded - thank you so much for the rating and heart! Hope you're having a good reading year so far. Have you given Louise Penny another shot yet?
Brokenwings87 rated for LLU 2021 Yearly Wrap-up on Jan 12, 2022
Comment: Thank you for all those lovely books. I liked the movie Cruella too! Don't think it made my favorite of the year, but it really was good.
Response: I was grasping for an answer and it was the most recent movie I had watched. lol Upon further reflection I would probably go with Luca as my favourite, it was pretty cute :)
Comment: Thank you for the nice Christmas card and the papers.
Response: You're welcome :) Hope you were able to enjoy the holiday. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the card and goodies!
Response: You're so welcome, thank you for the heart! <3

Comment: Your card is cute!! As are the stickers you included - I love them! Holiday lights are one of my favourite things at Christmas, as is baking - I trust your cookie exchange and gingerbread house building was a success!! Merry Christmas πŸŽ… πŸŽ„!!
Response: They were both a success, we had a lot of fun :) Thank you!!
Response: Thank you for rating, and for the heart <3
Comment: Ha ha ha ha! you made me laugh with this card Ann-Marie! I Bet Santa needs glasses my SM is pretty good actually, just take a peek! (links in Profile) I'll be replying to you ASAP! Happy Swapping and Merry Christmas!

Changeling rated for ILT Happy Holiday Greetings on Nov 29, 2021
Comment: Hi, thank you for the cute card and the goodies! I enjoy cookie exchanges as well. That sounds like a lot of fun. And Santa would indeed be skipping this house if he saw my Facebook. :)
Response: Hahaha, too funny! The cookie exchange didn't go quite as planned, but we had a nice visit, and everyone had fun decorating gingerbread houses, so it was a success. :) Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Thank you for the card and the goodies. I hope you had fun at your cookie exchange. Sounds yummy! Good luck with your cricut. Mine has sat on the shelf for two years gathering dust because all it did was frustrate me. Lol.
Response: Oh no! Maybe this coming year you'll get some use out of your cricut! I think I may have finally got mine figured out? Maybe... Haha! Thank you for the heart!!

2021 Profile Hello (forgot to write it sorry) Go Ravenclaws go! Once I shared with a friend of mine that I was confused I was placed into Ravenclaws b/c I'm "not all that smart". She replied that she saw me more of a Luna Lovegood than a Cho Chang. I decided to take that as a complement lol :). I loved hearing about your many hobbies, I wish I was talented enough at baking to accomplish a whole wedding cake, wow! As for the polymer clay, I just met someone in a different swap with a similar interest. Here's a link to his pf if you'd like to try and get in contact for a swap or something. idk https://www.swap-bot.com/user:JulianCorrales Have a good one :3

2021 Profile Hello

Hi Anne-Marie,

I enjoyed reading through your profile and am thrilled that we have several things in common, which makes sharing a hello so much easier!

I, too, collect Funko Pops, but mostly Marvel characters and some favorite TV shows and movies. My husband and I swap them as gifts.

I'm also a Harry Potter fan. In fact, it's about time for a re-read, so thanks for the reminder.

I LOVE coffee, but if we all liked the same things, the world would be a very boring place. For me, I'm not a wine drinker. Never learned to like it.

I hope you enjoy some fantastic swaps in 2021. It's been a crazy year and it doesn't look like we've quite cleared the hurdle yet, but I'm remaining positive.

Have a creative day! Mallie

2021 Profile Hello

Good Morning from Odessa, Texas! While reading your profile I noticed that you don't like coffee or tea! I can so feel you on the coffee but I just got to have my sweet iced tea from McDonald's! Hope you have a wonderful day and are staying warm! Hugs.
