things I would like to receive

  • HEALTH FOOD ITEMS! sweetened with honey or xylitol, chia seeds, hemp hearts, coconut, those type of foods. Always trying to eat healthy

  • Chocolate - I love dark and milk. Especially with nuts or caramal in it, no sugar added is a bonus but not required

  • any nut food items, candy (sweet & sour but not a big fan of licorise)

  • SUGAR FREE - gum, candy and chocolate as well

  • coconut flavoured or scented items - LOVE coconut!!!

  • scented soaps, bubble baths and candles- just not flowery especially not rose

  • any type of snacks related to your country that may not be available here. My family REALLY enjoys test tasting the new and original...even the wacky items

  • herbs and spices for cooking maybe include it with your favorite recipe. Pictures of dishes help

  • nail polish, open to any colour

  • tea and tea related items (not black, regular, chamamile or orange peko)

  • coffee and coffee related items ( I also love the smell)

  • hot chocolate, especially if it is flavoured (mint, coconut, raspberry etc.)

  • samples (can be interesting)

  • baking and kitchen things

  • christmas ornaments from your country

  • dragon flies and bug related items

  • gardening items

  • earings (small and sparkly)

  • hair accessories (clips, berets, elastics) I do like sparkly as well

  • favorite colours - black, pink, blues, silver and sparkly things

I'm not interested in Kawaii, postcards, fabric, stickers, erasers, religious items, cats, paper or paper craft items like ATC's

About Me

I am married and a mother to two boys aged 11 and 13. I work part time as a dental assistant and my husband works often out of town as a heavy duty mechanic.

I love to swim and have joined the swim masters club for adults. In the summer we do a lot of camping and have recently bought a boat so the boys can learn how to waterski and knee board. I guess I would also be known as a soccer mom as I am always driving my kids to soccer, baseball, cub scouts, snowboarding etc.

I love to travel whether it is Mexico, Hawaii or somewhere within our province like Tofino. We just got a new puppy and are busy loving and training her. She is so cute! She is a mini aussie cross and we named her Roo

things I enjoy

vacations - mostly somewhere near the ocean; or in the forest such as camping, hiking and boating. One year we went caving (spelunking) on Vancouver Island, that was a lot of fun. We were in Mexico 2012 and went to Expor. We swam through caves and also went zip lining!

I love Christmas - snowflakes, snowmen and ice, like crystally sparkly things.

The boys and I have started a garden last year and are excited to get started on that again - I don't have the greenest thumb but they enjoy their 'snack' garden;

I love tea coffee and hot chocolate- my favorite teas are peppermint, chocolate chai, cinnamon ,or other chocolate flavor combinations and tropical green tea. not too many of the fruity ones but I do like to try something new. I like unusal flavours, I have lots of Earl Grays, black teas and roobios, I would rather receive something other than the plain teas. Someone sent me an Eggnog Bigalow tea which I loved and can't get that kind or brand here, as well as I received a watermelon tea which I really liked and would love more of!

I like to cook and would be interested in spices or things from other countries, that would be really interesting. I also enjoy baking and am always interested in the best tried and true recipies especially if they have a healthy side. I loved black bean brownies and have heard of some chick pea cookies but have never tried them.

Favorite Books

I love to read, I do read a lot of Dean Koontz, I also loved the Twilight series, Harry Potter series, the Mortal Instuments series by Cassandra Clare - City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass and the prequel Clockwork Angel. White Cat by Holly Black, Fire and Graceling by Kristen Cashore and the Hunger Games series...all great books. The Demon king and The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima, I have to get the third one yet. I have read up to the third book in the House of Night Series by P.C Cast and Kristin Cast - Marked, Betrayed and Chosen. right now I am on the fifth book in the Game of Thrones series. Currently read Divergent and now the second book Insurgent

Ratings

I will alway rate as soon as something comes in so that you will know I have received it.

Also if you feel there is a problem in anyway I would appreciate a PM first so that I can try to fix the problem or re-send if needed.

My Kids

Like I mentioned I have two boys aged 11 and 13, Eric and Tyler. They are very close buddies and play well together. They love chocolate and candy - we made some of our own bubble gum from a kit as well as some sour gummies, video games (Wii) such as spyro the dragon, Rabbid Rabbits and Mario, nothing too violent. They love to ride their bikes, play with their dog, and swim. Usually Tyler plays soccer and Eric plays baseball but this year they are both going into Sprockids, a mountain bike group. They don't collect any sports cards or anything like that. They love playing at the park and at the beach (we go to the lake a lot) and driving their remote control trucks. They love fishing, card games and board games and BUGS (they picked out these braclets with a scorpian and a spider encased in glass from Mexico). They like souveniers from other places they have shirts, hats, magnets, snowglobes, and postcards. They aren't afraid of trying new foods either (they even ate salt and vinegar flavoured crickets from the bug zoo in Victoria) They like weird stuff.

Comment: This arrived fast! Thank you very much. I wish I could open the little packages already! :) I'll update... //Edited after opening: Please pay attention to expiry dates, the chocolate's exp.date was almost two years ago (Jan/12). The Christmas decoration is funny, I like it. :)
Response: WHAT! I am so embarrassed! I bought everything right before sending it! I am shocked that something was that outdated in the store!

Comment: Thank you so much for the teas. I have not tried these flavors before and that is the beauty of this swap in getting to make new discoveries. Your stationery is such a beautiful outdoor scene. It reminds me of the state park where I camped as a child. I really appreciate your letter and it was a pleasure to read. Thank you for sharing about your outdoor activities.

Just checking in to see if you received your sock package yet. I imagine it takes awhile to get from here to there.... but I just thought I'd check! Hope all is well! ~Heather

Hi, 'penny! I wanted to let you know that I got the angel package for the snack swap today. Thank you very much. I should've known better than to open it with my teenage son and his friend here, but I did get a few pieces! It didn't last long and was very much enjoyed. Thanks!
