About Me

Hello I am Ingrid and haven't been on swap-bot for so long so man am I having nostalgia.

I am a preschool teacher. I teach 3 to 5 year old skills they need for school. Every week I write a happy gram for my students. It tells the parents and child what they did all week in a positive direction. It is important to foster confidence in children. It makes them more resilient, so it is easier for them to get through any difficulties they may face in the future.

Every Week I do an elaborate (for preschoolers) project to help them learn and give them a momento to their preschool years.

Wishlist

Every year I organize an alzheimer tea party to raise money for the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

For the tea party I need:

Tea (individually wrapped) Mugs or tea cup (so I can avoid disposables) Small plates or saucers (again to avoid disposable) Cloth napkins (to avoid disposable) Tea Party themed art (to sell in art auction, money goes to Alzheimer's society) Card making supplies (for craft table) Tea themed stuff (there will be a raffle) Easy Recipes for bake goodies that I can make to go with the tea.

Artwork

you can see my artwork on flickr Deviantart youtube and my website

I have been practicing art for over 20 years and I have an advanced diploma in animation computer art. My favourite mediums are: Prismacolor pencil, copic marker, watercolour and graphite. My favourite subject matter is birds, angels, demons, animals.

Wishlist

I would love to recieve:

Knitted or crocheted items such as Tea Towels, wash clothes, amigumi (crocheted stuffed animal), blanket, socks, scarf etc

Your own Artwork of birds or dragons or Angel's.

Bento Box or lunch containers

Tea, chocolate, candies, or hot chocolate mix

I collect rock so gem stones or interesting rocks would be nice.

I like plants but you can't send plants in the mail so perhaps some plant accessories such as pots, garden decorations, fairy garden stuff etc. Don't send seeds though because I live on the shady side of an apartment building and can't grow much here (shade loving plants).

Geeky stuff. I like Nightcrawler from Xmen, Yuri on Ice, Voltron, Dragons, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Studio Ghibli,

Comment: I just received my extra special package. Thank you! I LOVED the No Face pin and I immediately put it on my work lanyard. I'd love to be your Anime penpal! I'll start browsing my favorite store, Daiso, for some stickers and cute stuff. :) Be on the lookout for a package in the next coming weeks.
Response: Awesome. I look forward to it. There's an anime convention next week so I'll look for some stickers for you in the artist alley.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC, stocking, mittens, bath mitt and cards!! I don't join many handmade swaps (since I'm sadly lacking in art/craft abilities!) so it's really special to receive so many handmade items, and I love them all. :-)
