September 2019 update- I am slowly getting back into swaps. I’m currently preparing to hike up to Everest Base Camp this November. I am pretty stoked about that.
Currently looking for pen pals from anywhere. I would like is for us to send 1 or 2 letters by snail mail a month ~~~Please note all my swaps come from a pet friendly and smoke free 🏡 ~~~ **Ratings: I have 3 3’s. None of which are from 2019. I received one of them because I didn’t ask enough questions about the swap and I sent NEW stuff for a magpie art journal swap so I didn’t meet the requirements. The other 2 I had no control over because I sent my items and then our postal system went on strike and they were a week late. I communicated with both individuals but was given that rating. **
I NEVER FLAKE ON MY SWAPS. Please contact me if there is an issue
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 won first prize for one of my poems a few years ago and had one of my stories published in Chicken Soup for the Soul. I also love art journaling and photography. I have 2 cats and a dog. Art journaling is my favorite.
I've been keeping a journal since I was 13.
📚 Authors I like... 📚 Stephen King 📚 L.M. Montgomery 📚 Charlotte Gray 📚 Patricia Cornwell 📚 Margaret Atwood 📚 Sylvia Plath 📚 Charles Dickens 📚 J.K. Rowling 📚 James Patterson
I am sure there are others I can't think of at this moment.
Some of my fav 🍿 🎥 are: 🍿 Stand by Me Movie 🍿 Fried Green Tomatoes 🍿 A Christmas Carol 🍿 The Colour Purple 🍿 Gremlins 🍿 Anne of Green Gables 🍿 Goonies 🍿 One Magic Christmas 🍿 Scrooged (with Bill Murray) 🍿 Stand by Me 🍿 It (both versions)
I like mostly 📺 crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I crochet or write. I don't usually sit down and watch a specific show.
My absolute favourite is art journaling. I have been doing it a few years now. I especially like things I find lying 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. My journal 📓 say a lot about me.
I also do a bit of crocheting. Mostly just scarves and baby blankets.
