About Me

I'm from Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. A very Northern City in Canada. Yes lots of snow, No I don't live in an igloo.

I'm a paper hoarder, stamp fanatic, art journaller and lover of all things paper craft related! I have two little boys that love to craft with me too! We love to go camping and have fun outdoors unless it's winter. I'm NOT a winter lover even though I live in very Northern Canada.

I keep a bullet Journal and an art journal and a gratitude journal! I love all things floral and pretty! I try to keep positive as I have some very negative circumstances I'm living through right now. I'm looking forward to swapping and receiving some happy mail!

Favorite Music

I like current upbeat music of any genre except Country! I subscribe to Apple Music so I can keep a current favourites list and mix some of my favourite oldies. You'll find everything from Aerosmith to Lenny Kravitz to Pink on my list!

Favorite Books

I love to read although I don't get as much time for it as I would like. I read a lot of non fiction self help type books for moods, business and happiness. I also like current fiction and have all of Oprahs list books.

I am currently reading The Nest and having a hard time getting through it. I read The Year of Yes last summer though and it was one of my favourite books ever!

Favorite Crafts

Where do I start?!? I love all things paper, stamps and ink though. I know I could get into a lot of trouble if I ventured into other crafts so I keep it limited to that!

Art Journalling- I use all types of media and mediums. Acrylic paints, inks, dyes, stains, Tim Holz Distress products, Dina Wakelys products, watercolours.... anything that can make colour and a funky design on a page I'm all over.

Scrapbooking - I am a traditional scrapbooker, I don't do pocket scrapbooking. I like original pages, I don't follow templates or other people's designs other than for inspiration.

Bullet Journalling - I love stickers, washi tape and colourful pens! I'm not a fan of animal stickers, mostly girly flowers and plant based ones.

In particular things I like to receive are:

•journalling tags


•enamel dots



•notebooks and journals

•gel pens (I love InkJoy pens), markers

•ink pads

•scrapbooking supplies

•smash book supplies

•washi tape

•chocolate (I'm not fond of white chocolat)

*Colours: green, blue, pink

•swap cards

•rubber stamps

•address labels



•mason jars

•book or library themed items

•typewriter themed items

•things that are striped, polka dot, arrows or chevron pattern

•things with my name on them, Wanda

•new product samples

•tea (especially white or green tea or ginger flavours)

•items from other countries (especially food items we can't get in Canada)

•handmade items - especially quilted or sewn as I can't sew!

•new or used craft magazine

*camping ,fishing, going the lake, great outdoors themed items

*Little boy items, my boys are currently 4 and 9 years old so anything for school year, preschool, terrible two's (done that twice now!)

*I'm a size XL and prefer muted colors

I'm not hard to please and will be happy with anything that is sent. I am Christian so nothing pagan or wiccan please.

Comment: The washi was below the $5 minimum, but no point in rating a 3--thank you for sending! Happy swapping. :)
Response: I'm sorry it was difficult to find something in the $5 range, many of your items were well above. I picked something that in CAN$ was as close as I could find.

Comment: Ohh I was so happy when I received your package! I especially love the clear paper with butterflies and music notes, could you tell me where you got that from? Or what it's called? I've been looking for so long, I'd love to make envelopes out of it! If you ever want to swap again, please let me know :) I'd love to collect more of that white or sturdier black and white paper, or those die cuts for example!
Response: It's a Tim Holz product that comes in a roll. I ordered it on Amazon. It is lovely isn't it? One of my favourite products!
