About Me

I live in BC, Canada and I'm a stay at home mom of two, an 14 year old boy and a 12 year old girl. I am happily married to a wonderful man. I volunteer at the kids' elementary school often and keep myself busy at home baking, painting, sewing and spending as much time outside as I can gardening.

ANCESTRY: I'm very interested in receiving anything at all to do with NORWAY and ENGLAND as It is my heritage and I find it fascinating.


  • Buffalo check, Lumberjack Plaid, Buffalo Plaid, whatever you call it in your neck of the woods, I LOVE it. Tea towels, Christmas ornaments, notebooks, if it's got the famous red and black pattern I'm all for it

  • Scentsy - especially tropical or fruity scents

  • Health Food Products - Protein bars or drinks, stevia, healthy treats and snacks, chia seeds, etc.

  • Bumble Bars - We can't get these sesame bars here and they're soooo good!

  • Coconut anything! Flavours or scents

  • "Gastromat" Norwegian seasoning, mmmm!

  • Chocolate and gum sweetemed with xylitol, stevia or more natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup

  • Herbs and spices for cooking

  • Unique snacks from your country (healthy or not)

  • Seed packets for gardening

  • Skin lotions and soaps (especially lavender, coconut or mint)

  • Christmas ornaments! I love the ones that have the name of the place on it, I have a cute Elvis from Memphis, a peach from Georgia, poker chips from Las Vegas, etc.

  • I love vintage Mickey Mouse items

  • I REALLY would love to receive any kinds of items with anything at all to do with NORWAY or LONDON

  • Chocolate (especially dark, liquor, tea flavoured, coconut, mint and cinnamon and LINDT!) I am allergic to walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts.

  • Flavoured teas (chocolate, cinnamon, interesting herbals)

  • Coffee, flavoured, plain, decaf, no matter what I'll drink it!

Sights, Sounds and Smells

The ocean, the beach, snowflakes, campfire, colored rocks, rain, lightning storms, deep forests, autumn leaves and colors, fruit trees, wheat fields, rolling hills, the smell of coconut, lime and cinnamon. I also love the scent of lilac, lavendar and mint.


Art, drawing, painting, sewing, camping, scrapbooking, gardening, cross stitch, reading, walking, biking, days at the lake and family vacations.


BLACK, red, neutrals, sparkly things, earth tones and once in a while light pastels.

Things I Don't Like

Earrings for pierced ears, doilys, lace, Victorian looking things, old fashioned dolls, monkeys, clowns, gory or violent themes, naked or half dressed pictures of men (keep it PG please!) products scented like roses, and really cheap items that fall apart when you use them once.

FOOD I DISLIKE: *Black unflavoured teas like English Breakfast, etc., chamomile or loose tea

I am allergic to walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts


We have two dogs, a Golden Retreiver named "Lucky Clover" who goes by Lucky and a Springer Spaniel/English Setter cross named Winter


I will never flake!!! If you haven't received your package from me please let me know before rating me badly!! I would love the chance to track it or send it again. Also, I would appreciate if you would rate me as soon as you receive your package from me so I know you got it. Thanks!

*I was flaked on by Avalonia for the 24 Days of Gifts - Advent #78

  • I was flaked on by PinkyPao for the Health Food Products Swap.

  • I was flaked on by Candygirl90 for the Profile Surprise #20 Swap.

  • I've received an unfair rating of a 1 by Swapperdaae. The package met all requirements and even contained an extra! I've tried contacting this person repeatedly with no response.

  • I was flaked on by Midwestdiva for the Mega Drinks swap. ***I was angelled by Miabiff, thank you!!!****

Comment: thank you for the selection, sorry about the later rating. I am so happy to read that your family enjoyed the stay in Prague, i love the astronomical clock - i used to work at the office right opposite it but until 2006 before i went for maternity leave. Please dont seal the teabags with the tape as it destroys the bag when taking it off - i am collector

I enjoyed reading your profile! I like the perfume samples too since its so hard to find perfumes that don't have such a strong smell. Its fun to meet people who are into art! :D

Hi, I'm your partner in the "Read my profile and write a comment"-swap. I'm new here, and it is so interesting to see how various my swap partners are. I really like your profile, there is so much awareness ... tastes, colors, sounds... you seem to be very sensitive. I wonder about "Seed packets for gardening" - is it allowed to import such things from anywhere ??

READ MY PROFILE AND LEAVE A COMMENT-- Hi! Being a busy mom of 2 and a art teacher, as well as a crafter....wow. You must have energy! hehehe. I hope your journey in life, leads you to discover more about Norway and your ancestory. Just think of what that could hold..... I love Mickey Mouse and also collect many different things both old and new of him and Minnie. Happy Swapping

Fast Profile Comment Swap:

Hi, my name's Cass. You're one of my partners for this swap :)

I love chai tea! It's amazing. I don't drink coffee, so I order either a chai or a milkshake when I'm at a cafe. And dark chocolate is my favourite, although my family aren't fans. They think I buy it so I can eat it all myself :O

I look forward to swapping with you in future :) Have a lovely day.
