About Me

I am a single mom of four. I teach mixed media art to children ages 6-12 years old and work at a community centre. I love writing and have published a couple of books. I have won first prize for one of my poems a few years ago and have had one of my stories published in Chicken Soup for the Soul. I also love art journaling and photography. I have 3 cats and a dog.

I've been keeping a journal since I was 13 years old so its been over 3 decades. I have quite the collection now!

Favorite Books

I like variety when it comes to books.

Instead of naming the books, I will name some of the authors I like. Stephen King L.M. Montgomery Charlotte Gray Patricia Cornwell Margaret Atwood Sylvia Plath Charles Dickens J.K. Rowling James Patterson

And I am sure there are others I just can't think of right at this moment.

Favorite Movies

Some of my fav movies are: Stand by Me Fried Green Tomatoes A Christmas Carol The Colour Purple Gremlins Anne of Green Gables Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Favorite Television

I like mostly crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I am crocheting, writing in my journal or folding laundry. I don't usually sit down and watch a specific show.

Favorite Crafts

My absolute favourite is art journaling. I have been doing it a few years now. I especially like washi tape and things I find around, missing playing cards, using markers etc. I also put in stuff that I come across during my journey. For example if I go to a movie I will paste my ticket stub in my journal. Or if I get a really cool birthday card. So my journals say a lot about me. Some people say I suffer from "Stationary Sickness" and I am okay with that. That's the truth!

I also like painting and drawing and photography. I have had a couple of my own solo art shows and have sold over a dozen pieces but have just been into art the last couple years. Although I haven't created any new pieces in almost a year.

I also do a bit of crocheting. Mostly just scarves and baby blankets.

A Few Likes

I like Snoopy, Harry Potter (I especially like Harry, Dobby and Hagrid) Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Owls and anything to do with Anchors. I love stickers, anything paper that looks vintage.

I also just got a second hand guitar. Don't know how to play but want to learn so anything with guitars on it will motivate me.

And I like pens, especially felt pens....

And used stamps, they look awesome in my art journals.

And snail mail, of course I love snail mail!!!

Hey you, thanks for stopping by! Just remember you are awesome!


  • Although I like stickers I am not a fan of stickers that are emoji's, reward stickers or food stickers.

  • solid coloured notecards (I prefer ones with an image/print)

Comment: Welcome to swap-bot! I am happy to be your first swap. I love the different washi tapes that you selected for me. And can you believe it? I don't have any of those washi tapes in my collection!
Response: Glad you liked them and awesome that you don't have any of them!
