About Me

January 6 * Will be out of town from the 6-13. If I am not responding or rating, it's because of this! Thanks for understanding*

I am a married Mom of 3 little boys in Ontario, Canada. I also have a lovely chocolate labrador named Percy. While I am a full time stay at home mom, I am doing my Education degree part time. I eventually want to be a preschool teacher.

My hobbies/interests: I am a musician and play in a band here in my city. I am the vocalist. I love all types of music, especially rock, jazz and soul/funk.

I would love to send people things that brighten their day. I am interested in writing letters, sending happy mail and sending crafts. I love sending and receiving any type of snail mail. I think swapping is a fantastic way to get to know lots of people!! :)

Things I love

Things I love to receive!!

*Postcards sent naked and stamped with a message from the sender.

*Stickers. I am not picky about these. I use stickers for pretty much everything, from decorating envelopes and letters to notes for my boys in their lunches, etc.

*Nice pens! Gel or otherwise. I especially love bright colours and metallic ink.

*Washi tape. I just discovered this stuff and I love it!

*Journals/notebooks. I love having pretty books to jot thoughts down

*Stationery sets ( pretty sheets with a matching envelope)

*Notecards- never can have too many of these!

*Scrapbook paper





*Playlists - I love discovering new music/artists!

Address labels

Anything with ladybugs or butterflies

Anything with owls

Anything with music notes

Anything Snoopy/Peanuts

*Anything Christmas, Halloween, St. Patrick's Easter, Valentines themed

Recipes for baking and cooking

Christmas ornaments

Yarn for knitting projects



Beach Scenes

City/Attractions from where you are from

Anything with a fun stamp or thought being put into it.

Funny/joke postcards

Retro postcards

TYPES OF NOTECARDS I LIKE Bright colours, especially peacock blue, pink, teal

Pretty designs on the outside and blank inside.

Ocean/beach scenes


Cute animals

One word on the front like "Hello, Smile, etc"

Mixed media


Music Related

FAVOURITE COLOURS Teal, Peacock Blue, Coral, Pink, Purple

I also don't mind if you send swap items that my boys would like. They especially love STICKERS. If you send with my boys in mind, this is what they like:

Boy#1: Loves Robots, Superheroes of all kinds, and Supervillains.

Boy #2: Loves Dinosaurs, trains, brightly coloured/glittery things.

Boy #3: Loves anything brightly colored, Yo Gabba Gabba (if you know what that is) and cars/trucks.

Things I don't love

I would prefer if you didn't send me the following things, just because they won't go to use.

ATC stuff - haven't really got the time to make them at the moment

Embroidery floss

*Loose glitter (I am fine with glitter being on cards/papers, just not the glitter in bags)

*Tea/coffee - don't drink it! If a swap requires it, you can send whatever you want or hot chocolate. ;)

*Thank you cards (that actually say Thank you on the outside" I prefer cards that can be used for a variety of purposes.

Comment: Warm Winter Greetings, Ok, I must lead a Non-weird Swapbot life compared to this swap answer. It's all funs and games until the pervs come out of the closet! He sounded like a perv and you did the right thing telling him not to contact you anymore. I think he might have been trolling a partner in the wrong sense of the word! Kudos to you. Happy 2018
Response: Yeah, I wasn't too pleased, but I understand all kinds make up a site! Thankfully that was pretty much the only bad experience on here, so I am really happy swapping in general with the people here. Happy 2018!

Comment: That's great that your son has made friends already in your new area, Julie! I'm so happy for him, and for you/your family! Where did you move from and to? Across the country seems like it would be HUGE. Was it a job that precipitated the move? I'd love to hear more! :-) Thank you for sharing!
Response: Thanks so much, Karen! I am really happy for him too. We moved to Ottawa, Ontario from Edmonton, Alberta for my husband's job. So far we are really liking it here! Thanks for your interest. :)
