About Me

badge

I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I spend my spare time smashbooking, reading, writing, scrapbooking, organizing in my planner, and couponing. I love to travel and love to get things from other countries.

I am having a lot of fun here on swap-bot. I really enjoy sending and receiving mail.

My favourite things to swap are smash book supplies, project life cards, lucky parcels, product samples, notecards, pocket letters, stocking stuffers and profile surprises.

Favorite Crafts

I'm interested in most paper crafts. In particular scrapbooking, project life, card making and smashbooking.

I would love any cancelled postage stamps you may have. I'm working on a project right now that uses a lot of stamps.

I'm currently working on a scrapbook of pictures from a Carribean cruise and a book of family pictures.

I have a couple of smash books in progress and have been working on a daily thought journal for 2017. I have a weekly planner I like to decorate with washi tape and small stickers.

I have an A5 size Filofax and am enjoying creating dashboards, inserts and bookmarks for it.

I've been trying to practice my doodling this year and hope to work my way up to zentangles. I've started doing doodles on blank tags and I'm really enjoying it.

I have a few adult colouring books and find it very relaxing colouring in the pictures.

I also enjoy knitting but admittedly haven't been doing much of it lately.

  • anything Titanic related

  • paper napkins

  • used postage stamps

  • ecofriendly tote bags

  • sudoku puzzles

  • things with my name on them, Kim

  • baking supplies (I love making cupcakes, squares, cookies, chocolates and cakes)

  • new product samples

  • tea (especially fruit, chocolate or ginger flavours)

  • items from other countries (especially food items we can't get in Canada)

  • would really like to try flavoured M&Ms and flavoured Kit Kats or different flavoured chips

  • handmade items - especially quilted or sewn as I can't sew!

  • new or used craft magazines

  • anything to do with the movie A Christmas Story

I am very easy to please and am happy to receive whatever you think I may like.

I read a lot of dystopian/post apocalyptic novels. I would love to hear your recommendations.

Comment: Receiving mail from you is always special and you made this into such a special swap to open as well. Everything from the envelope covered with stamps, the note card with message, the letter, the tea and the special washi samples would have been enough but you also packaged it so nicely in a pocket letter. Thank you for sending this little envelope of love.♥
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I was actually working on another piece of mail for you today. Stay tuned - a letter should be on its way next week. :) Have a great day. Happy Swapping!

Comment: Thanks for your goodies. I loved them remember if swaps says package to send, i mostly send large packages. Just a tip. Lynn
Response: You're welcome. Based on the example in the swap description, I think this swap was to be for little surprises. It was categorized as package or craft with no requirement to send a large package. Happy Swapping!
