About Me

รทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทVERY IMPORTANTรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรทรท

As of February 1st, 2014, I will not be online for ONE FULL MONTH. That does not mean I'm only checking messages occasionally. I WILL NOT BE ONLINE. I am participating in Lettermo (see info below). If you have questions/concerns or just want to say hello, I won't know you've sent me a message until MARCH. If I have agreed to angel for a flaker and you have not sent me your address, you will have to wait until March. If you have a concern about the swap I'm currently hosting, it will have to wait until March. (Speaking of said swap, I will create #2 when I am back online - thanks for your patience!). If you notice that I havent logged on in 6 or 13 or 23 or 29 days...I am still here, I am ok and I look forward to swapping with you all when i return! Have a great February!! :)

Happily married mum. Heavily tattooed, well travelled, lover of books. Early riser. Conspiracy theorist. Coffee & tea drinker. Winter lover. Introvert with ocd. Social disaster. Quilter, crafter, artist, gardener and I drink too much red wine.

DOTD

Interested in... holistic/homeopathic/herbal medicine and healing. Attachment parenting. Survivalism. Homemaking. Urban farming. Conspiracy theory.

My family is paleo, and I enjoy talking to others who eat/live as such. ** please take this into consideration in recipe swaps.

Located in rural Ontario, Canada.

รทรทรท I am participating in www.lettermo.com in February. If you would like a letter from me, please message me your contact info! (Lettermo is a dedicated month of giving up the internet, and pledging to write and send at least one letter a day.)รทรทรท

รทรทรท PRIVATE SWAPS! As of late, the majority of my swapping experiences have been....disappointing. I would love to do more personal, private swaps for the following things: tea wallets, tea, coffee, 8 inch quilt squares, sewing projects, ATCs, postcards, stuffed envelopes, letters, profile based packages, etc รทรทรท

This is Lightning. She escaped and spent a month yard hoping, terrorizing neighbours and fornicating with wild rabbits likely twice her age. She's home now, and not even a little bit happy about it.

This is Murphy, our rescue pup. He is a 3 1/2 month old german shepherd/walker coonhound.

Murphy

This is Sid, also a rescue. He is a 2 1/2 year old labrador retriever/great pyreness. He is an 80 lb lap dog.

Sid

(I have two lovely boys as well. Pictures of whom I dont post on public forums. Believe me though, theyre adorable ;)...)

Conversation subjects I enjoy:

Budgeting and personal finance (odd I know - and I know these are personal for most people.) I love comparing things like; weekly grocery budgets, where and how you save money, what wont you compromise on to save money? Debt snowballing and payoff stories.

Food allergies. Do you have them? Do your kids have them? What are they? What reactions do you have? Coping with them socially. What has been the hardest part?

Food in general. Ways of eating. Are you a Vegetarian? Paleo? Gluten free? Etc? For how long, and how did you come to that decision? Do you trust commercialized food? Conventional food preperation and processing. Factory farming. Agribusiness. GMOs. Food additives. Growing your own food. Thoughts on soy safety? Eating disorders. Food fear. Do you eat out alot? Cook your own? Etc, etc, etc!

Attachment parenting. Breastfeeding. Baby wearing. Cosleeping. Frustrations. Suprise pregnancies. Teen pregnancies. Funny stories. Anything parenting related.

Anxiety and Depression. GAD? Social anxiety? OCD? How do you cope? Is someone close to you affected? Conventional treatments vs. Alternative medicine treatments. What are you obsessive about? Does talking about it help or trigger an attack?

Conspiracy theory. Population control. Government and industry corruption. Sheeple. Etc.

Hobby farming. Do you live on one? Have you ever? Raised on one? Any farm stories. Gardening ideas. Urban farming/gardening. Greenhouse plans. "Farmers Almanac" kind of stuff.

Quilting. Sewing. Singer sewing machines. Current, old or future projects. Who tought you how to sew? Where in your house do you sew? Do you have a sewing room? Crafting, drawing, creating. Homemade Christmas gift ideas.

Lots of love for:

I just havent found a tea with vanilla in it that ive really enjoyed...oh, and im a bit of a tea snob, in which I prefer organic tea - ive read so much about pesticide use in teas, even formaldehyde showing up in certain teabags - gross. Organic is just a preference, not a requirement, and not all teas I send will be such. Some non organic brands are better than others. Please dont send me any tea by Celestrial Seasonings.)

Comment: Thank you for the great letter! Oh, wow, what a nightmare you went through.... Dealing with in-laws can be crazy, especially if they behave more like outlaws! Will be writing back soon! Thank you for the great "goodies" envie as well, totally unnecessary, as you communicated and no one should be punished for the extreme weather (or something like... staying safe/ alive), but still greatly appreciated!

Sam! Thank you so much for the ATC, and for angeling! This ATC made me giggle so much I'd love to go market shopping with Pikachu! Hahaha :)

flyingfox on Dec 5, 2013:

Hi Sam! This is Nana. We got paired up yet AGAIN- we must be destined to be pals LOL!!! (You are the sender as my "Drunk Penpal", yea!) Just wanted to give you a heads up that I mailed out my reply yesterday to the beautiful card you sent me. Hopefully it won't take too long to get there.

bethlems on Dec 2, 2013:

Hi Sam, I'm wondering if you've received my news from around the world yet? I hope it gets to you okay! I don't really know what the protocol is for asking you this kind of thing because it was my first swap. Beth x
