About Me

Hello From Toronto Canada

HERE IS MY THROWBACK THURSDAY INFO I am a long time fan of this man.

I am a person who suffers from both depression and anxiety both of which can sometimes really bring me down. I am always looking for new pen pals as I find writing letters and sending them via snail mail to be so much fun. I am even willing to just be a postcard pen pal if you cannot commit to writing letters.

I have made pen pals friends on this site and I regularly write back as soon as I receive your letter. But I want any future pen pals to know in advance that sometimes I can go a few months before writing a letter if I am experiencing a depressive episode.

Sometimes my depression can prevent me from really wanting to do anything. When I am very depressed I am not able to do anything and am not able to write anyone letters. So please do not take it personally if this does happen and know it is not you but rather me and something I am going through.

I am a very accepting person who is willing to be friends with anyone no matter who you are. I have faced a lot of judgement in my life and therefore never judge anyone for who they are. As long as you are willing to be my friend I am willing to be yours! I AM ALWAYS EAGER TO FIND NEW PEN PALS.

ALSO I LOVE FBs (Friendship Books)

I am a natural born swapper. I LOVE ANYTHING LUCKY

I am a SCORPIO by being born in November. I am outgoing and a super friendly and talkative and always looking to find new friends outside of Canada.

Owl love anyone who is interested in become a friend of mine or pen pal especially if they love all things OWLS. I love anything with OWLS on it owls are so awesome.

As I have been suffering with some major health issues, I love anything that can protect you from any health issues. I especially like anything that is EVIL EYE

I am really into healing stones and beads, especially ones known for attracting luck to a person such as JADE =D .For example citrine and turquoise stones are considered to be lucky stones to have which are also a wonderful healing stone to have... I love the power of stones for your health and luck. I like to collect anything made of powerful healing stones or stones that attract luck. Amber is also known for its healing powers. So I love to collect Amber beads to wear.

FAVOURITE CRAFTS

I love to draw doodles of flowers cards and any surface I can write on with a fine tipped marker. I make ATCs out of my flower doodles. I love to draw flowers on anything and everything. =) My favorite flowers are Sunflowers; Daisies; Cosomos or any flower with the he loves me he loves me not type petals.

I am also trying my hand at learning how to create tangle doodles especially of flowers. I am no expert yet but I appreciate any tips or suggestions regarding creating them.

I can crochet a little as I am still learning. I am also learning to knit. Anyone with tips and suggestions about crochet and knitting is greatly appreciated as I am a very slow learner and do not do either craft very well.

INTERESTS

I LOVE DOLLS OF ANY KIND ESPECIALLY RAGGEDY ANN AND RAGGEDY ANDY.

I love absolutely anything that has Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy on it

I love tiny doll charms of any kind or any miniature vintage dolls or figures. I especially like vintage miniature Kewpie Doll figures Touch Wud doll charms and Fums Up Doll charms. I also love sweet handmade dolls of any kind new or used that may be overlooked by most people and look like they are really in need of a lot of love.

I like Matryoshka Babuska Russian Nesting Dolls I think they are so cute :) I love anything with a Matryoshka Babuska Russian Nesting Doll them even stickers, writing pager and envelopes.

I am also a huge fan of anything KEWPIE DOLL

And I love the Pierrot and Pierrette dolls

I also like to collect the lucky horse figure Bucephalus which was the horse of Alexander the Great

I am a pet owner and BIG ANINMAL LOVER with two dogs and a cat. My animals are all female my dogs are a chihuahua (blonde) and a miniture pinscher min pin (brown) and my cat is a tabby (grey). When I was a kid I always wanted SNOOPY as our family pet. So it still makes me laugh when I see anything SNOOPY =)

I LOVE TO COLLECT ELEPHANTS with the trunk facing up in the air as that is considered to be very lucky.

I especially like anything to do with the real life JUMBO the elephant that traveled from America to Canada in 1885. He was the largest elephant of his time and he was part of the Barnum Circus. Sadly he died while on tour here in Canada.

I also love very much baby elephants as so many of them are being orphaned due to Ivory Poachers killing their parents just for the Ivory Tusks....so heartbreaking and cruel

I also love TURTLES as they too are lucky. Whenever I see a turtle on a road trying to cross to the other side I always pick it up and move it along. It saddens me the amount of wild turtles that are killed by cars.

I love to collect old Lucky Charms and like to collect any charm from that time period regardless of what it may be.

I also greatly love worn out old vintage or nostalgic or antique trinkets or Tokens lucky charms that were cherished by someone now passed on. I believe that sometimes the energy from the previous owner lingers on an item. It is fun to try to feel the vibes that might come off of any tokens.

I also love old round Natural Beads. My goal is to eventually have enough healing beads to make a bracelet or necklace. I would like to collect coral ,turquoise and amber beads. In some cultures coral beads are thought to protect you and attract lucky. With depression often on my mind, I can never own enough amber beads to keep me healthy =D,

I am trying to participate in a lot of postcard swaps on swap-bot. But I am having trouble finding a variety of postcards that are not just tourist photos of my city.

Please if you have any unused postcards that maybe you would like to swap for I would love to do a swap with you. I am really trying to get a half decent amount of postcards to use in swaps.Also PLEASE if you are in a postcard swap with me and you would like to help me build my unused postcard collection...please if the swap allows can you send my postcard blank in an envelope so I can use it in a future swap. Also for all those swappers who like to include an extras in their swaps, please consider sending me as an extra a blank postcard. Thank you.

OTHER STUFF ABOUT ME

I AM A BORN AND RAISED CANADIAN EH? WHO HAS BEEN FORTUNATE TO LIVE ABROAD

I HAVE LIVED IN ATHENS GREECE

AND ALSO IN NIGERIA AFRICA

l a huge fan of experiencing other cultures; customs and beliefs. I am married to a Wonderful Nigerian man.

.Please Note I have extremely sensitive skin and am very allergic to nickel and any metal that is not gold, silver or copper. I break out in blisters when wearing anything not made of gold, silver or copper.

I am someone who lost my heart to a woman as I have a secret love of LADY DIANA and collect anything Lady Di but none of my know of my close friends know this about me =) as they would think I am too cheesy.

I must confess I am an addict and my addition is Vintage Movies and the channel TCM. I especially like pre code movies, Shirley Temple movies and Busby Berkeley movies. My all time favorite movie is Footlight Parade and I am sure you will enjoy it if you ever check it out.

PLEASE NOTE:

I like to use Canadian Postage Stamps in my crafts and ATCs. Please if I send you something and you do not want the Canadian Postage Stamp, I would love to have it returned. But only do this if you are mailing something to me as I would hate for you to spend money mailing it to me.

Response: Thank you for your kind rating and heart and also love of someone in need of pulling themselves together...lol. With my depression I can so relate to that expression.

Response: Thank you so much for your kind rating and heart. I look forward to swapping again with you, also if you would like to be pen pals I would love that too. Unfortunately I am unable to write the first letter as I have just had surgery and am not feeling. But if you are interested feel free to write to me first if you would like, if not I will start to write to you later...but only if you want to be pen pals okay.

Comment: Thank you for the portrait of the young lady. The picture has an exquisite charme: a clear quietness. Have a wonderful spring- the fresh green grass is stunning. Isnt it?!!!
Response: Thank you for kind rating and heart. I am sure spring is uber wonderful there and I will tell you why. I was watching a show called Border Security Australia. It is about the border agents at the airport in Australia who screen holiday makers who arrived in Australia for a holiday. An elderly man arrived at the airport in Australia from Germany and brought a package of seeds of Spring Flowers that grow in Germany . When they asked him why he brought these seeds with him on his holiday to Australia he said that Germany has the best Spring Flowers in the whole world. And he wanted to share these German flowers with Australia =D.

Comment: Thanks for the great postcard! Hope it warms up soon there ... it's been hot here, in the '80s already. Little worried about when it is actually summer! 🌞🌞
Response: Thank you so much for your kind rating and heart. I am so happy you like what I sent to you =D. I wish we had warm weather here. You are right about worrying about the summer but if it gets to hot there in the summer just come here to stay with me...lol...I never even need an air conditioner in the summer.

Response: Thank you for your kind rating and heart and it is always nice to find local partners. Do you know I have heard of some fellow swappers that meet once a year for a crafting day/get together. Too bad there is nothing like that in our neck of the woods.
