About Me

I am a working wife and mom. I live in Edmonton, Alberta.

I took a break from active swapping the last few years due to family issues but have kept up with pen-pals and collecting my postcards.

I enjoy crafting, reading and playing games. We camp and fish during the summer and play in the snow and ice the rest of the year.

Currently we are also in the final stages of restoring our 1966 Cadillac Deville. It's a ragtop and is so much fun to drive, it's like a big boat.

I love receiving Postcards from all over the world and try to send out at least 12 cards a month.

I have been pen-palling for 30 years now and have some great friends from all over the world. Some day I would love to meet up with a few of my pals.

Favorite Books

I read everything I can get my hands on and actively use the library. I often have several books on the go at a time, 1 in the car, 1 in the living room, and a couple in my bedroom.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, sewing, bead work, some paper crafts and cards.


frogs & flamingos

postcards from all over

knitting & crochet supplies

charms and trinkets

fridge magnets from your everywhere

smart, thoughtful pen pals

address labels--always need 'em

Comment: I bet we've been at the library or the mall at the same time! I always love when the swap draw for an International swap gives me someone in the Province or the Country, but this is a first to hear from someone so close. Thanks and Merry Christmas. A heart for my neighbour.
Response: I know what you mean, we could walk to each others homes.

Comment: Thank you so much for your comment! I like to do a lot of different crafts. My month has been so busy and that takes away from my crafting. I need a "Do not disturb this month" sign. LOL! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane
