...about me...

I’m SE (or Sarah Elaine if you prefer).

I am 30 years old - although some days I feel like I'm 50, and days I feel like I am 5 (and days I am somewhere in between) I live in Saskatoon with my awesome husband B, our dog Jackson, our cats Jett, Jadzia and Jypsee and an entire school of fish.

I am a night owl and not a morning person. I'm a writer who dreams of being published. I love taking photos and hope to be in a gallery one day. I adore adventure, travel, and exploring with out a plan. I am a gemini, an IFNP and an HSP - these work together and against themselves. I almost always have music playing, sometimes it's just in my head. I am an avid coffee, tea and cocoa drinker and have a vast mug collection. I adore notebooks, of any and every size. I adore the show Friends, the Harry Potter Series, Star Trek (DS9 & Voyager specifically) and I adore all Disney movies. I adore Lacrosse - and am a HUGE Saskatchewan Rush fan. I am a hockey fan - cheering for the Toronto Leafs (and the Oilers, thanks to B) as well as our local team the Blades.

I am career nanny, and have been working as a caregiver for over 10 years. I am working with two families currently - family one I've been with for 3 1/2 years the boys are 2 years old and 4 year olds and family two and I just started there is a 2 year old boy and 4 year old girl. I adore working with kids, and hope to spend my future working with them.

I'm random, odd, and can ramble on about nothing for hours at the time. At times shiny things will distract me. Overall I'm open minded, easy going, a big kid at heart, and a huge fan of a full mail box!

PS. I am pretty sure that Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch) is my spirit animal. I simply adore him.

...about my lovelies...

to help my partners when sending to my BF or to my pets

"B" He's 30 years old - Adores flying, airplanes and aviation in general. Likes to play video games (usually on the PC). Likes plain chocolate, skittles and peanut m&ms. Favourite shows and movies include - anything hockey, (specifically Oilers) or football (specifically Seahawks) related, 24, House of Cards, Star Trek, Star Wars, Hunt for Red October, Top Gun, Hells Kitchen - anything comedy or action based. He collects airplanes and golf balls from around the world

Jackson He's a 8 year old mutt. He was a rescue when he as a few months old and is sort of one of a kind. He likes small soft toys that squeak, small treats and any sort of "jerky" made for dogs. He's picky when it comes to dog food, but will eat people food as fast as he can. He likes cuddles, blankets and sleeping in. He's not a fan of other dogs. I tend to keep him in colours of blues and greens, and he actually wears a collar with a small boy tie.

Jett Miss Jett is the queen of our house. She was rescued from a local rescue when she was a kitten. She's a tortoiseshell cat or a tortie, and has her own "Tortitude". She loves to hunt, bottle caps and plastic bags are not safe in our house. She loves anything with feathers and ice cream. She is usually in black when it comes to any accesories.

Jadzia Jadzia - or Zia - is the cuddler in our house. She is the one to love curl up and purr on your lap. She is a diluted tortie and was rescued from a local rescue as a kitten as a sister for Jett. She love cardboard toys, fake mice and balls to play with She adores treats - any and every kid. She is usually in purple for accessories.

Jypsee Jypsee is the baby in our house and an accident. She showed up in our front yard during a snowstorm. We couldn't find her a home, so now she lives with us. She is a tiny Tuxedo (or Tuxie) cat. She adores any toy her sisters aren't playing with, but mostly mice and catnip toys. Usually her accessory colour is red.

...about my swaps...

. I have a one from several years ago, I also owe a few Tags from that time. All active partners contacted - see this link for explanation.

I try very hard to maintain my rating, so please contact me if something's not right. I sign up for a limited amount of swaps to keep my postal rates reasonable and if I sign up, that is my word that I will send to you.

If you are missing a swap and/or a rating from me, please let me know so I can right the situation. I'll make it better I promise!

I try and send early if I can, if I have an issue I always let my partners know. If you haven't received something from me, let me know and I will make it right.

Letter, postcard and other envie swaps get mailed at the box next to my work, I've found that this means it can be postdated 1-3 days after I drop it in there, I always try to get it in a few days before the deadline to remedy this, but please be aware.

Any other swap usually gets brought to the post office on Thursdays or the weekend, and sent before the deadline.

Canada post is funny at times. Sometimes it takes a few days, sometimes it's weeks. I always give it some time for something to arrive to me before getting too worried, and I ask you do the same. Usually within Canada and the USA it's 4days up to 2 weeks,Anywhere else it can be between 1-6 weeks. Please keep this in mind when sending to and receiving from me.

I promise to rate you when I get your swap! I always rate when I receive a swap so please rate me :) Also please leave me a comment it makes my day.

Just randomly followed a link to your profile froma comment you made on a swap, then on through to your blog. Oh wow! Your photos are amazing! Your pets, wildlife, landscapes, snapshots of day to day objects - everything you point a camera at seems to look great! I have been exploring my mixed media creative side lately and haven't done much photography . . . you make me want to get my camera out!
