About Me

December 26, 2018-Love swap bot. The majority of bots are absolutely amazing. However there are a few that have ruined it for me. For that reason I am taking a break from swap bot. I will send out and participate in the awesome swaps I am currently signed up for and will keep in touch with those bots I've become friends with. Thanks

Love getting mail and sending stuff out. It's like Christmas all year around!

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 3 cats and a dog. Art journaling is my favorite.

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 *Goonies *One Magic Christmas *Scrooged (with Bill Murray) *Stand by Me * It (both versions)

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 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. 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've been busy raising the kids, focusing on my writing and keeping balance using my art journal.

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

A Few Likes

*I collect Cabbage Patch Kids from 1983-1985 *Care Bears *Strawberry Shortcake *Owls, anchors, turtles *Bookmarkers *Harry Potter (Harry, Hagrid, Dobby) *Anchors, owls, turtles *Vintage Looking items and items with lace *Used Stamps (to put in my art journal) *Stickers *Maps (for art journal) **current absolute fav is anything vintage

I love art journals, especially hand made :) I like both lined and blank. ❤️

Beverages -I like mint tea, peppermint tea, lemon, hot chocolate, different favourite flavors of hot chocolate and apple cider :)

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

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

Dislikes

  • 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)

  • plastic coloured tape (I guess its fake washi?)

*I don't have any allergies

Wish List

Wish List -art journaling supplies -stamped paper tags -vintage items to put in art journal (Lace, tea dyed paper, old photographs) -love book marks (i don't mind hand made) -paper empherma

Comment: Thank you for all the fun stuff!! I only rated down due to lateness.
Response: Sorry you feel that way. Our postal system was on strike and out of all the ones I sent out, yours is the only one that seems to have an issue.

Comment: Thank you for the cute card. Just love Snoopy and Woodstock. Don't think I've ever received a card with a "real" wax stamp before. No snow down here. Had some but it's all melted. One more batch of cookies and then I can sit back and relax. Thanks again.
Response: Glad you noticed the seal and it made it okay :)

Newbie Friendly - Profile Hello #16

Hi hi Catina! I hope you have a lovely day! I also like(d) Care Bears, I mostly have all of my aunts care bears from when she was a kid - I also just found a care bear journal of mine that I used as a kid, it has some horrible drawings of all my pets.

Anyway,may you have a lovely Christmas!

x Jess
