About Me

01/2021 - Mail service is getting a little unreliable in my area lately. Mail is still making it but delays are becoming commonplace. As a result I will finish the swaps I have posted but will be taking a break from adding any more for a little while

07/2020 - going through some very unexpected health issues at the moment. I will finish my current swaps but will have to take a break after in order to focus on my health - thanks for understanding

{Hello!} I've joined swap-bot because I LOVE sending and receiving mail that is fun and doesn't require me to pay a bill :) I am a wife and a mother to two sweet energetic little boys.

I am a licensed teacher but recently left the profession to pursue other interests. The profession may have changed but the love of learning has not! I love learning new things and building on my creativity.

I love a mix of vintage style with modern colours

I have done some travelling but that's been on hold since having my sons. I did a 4 week teaching placement in Clacton-on-Sea England, lived in Trinidad and Tobago for a year and moved to Saskatchewan and enjoyed the prairies for 6 months but have always considered Ontario, Canada home :) I'm a country girl at heart


I have many hobbies but making ATCs (and recently ATC coins) is my favourite go-to to keep me busy. I also enjoy making mixed media collages, crocheting, quilting, learning to sew, painting and working on my Jane Davenport online workshop (love her!)! (and more)


ATC/APC cards/coins - These are my favourite thing to make when feeling creative! - stamped images, scraps of different paper etc. are always appreciated to work into my atc cards

I am just starting to get into journaling and have started art and junk journals - loving how they allow me to explore my creativity

Journal Pages! I love adding journal pages from others into my album :)

All Colours! but the colour yellow (specifically golden/mustard yellow), teal, lime green and dark blue tend to be what I pick the most

Zines! I've been experimenting making my own

Paper Doilies, paper napkins, lace and vintage scraps of fabric/linens

Friday Kahlo or Jane Davenport inspired anything!

things with a story or history - like old pictures and postcards!

Cancelled stamps! I love using them in my art journal and on ATCs

Postcards: naked is my favourite but I just started getting into post-crossing so in an envelope is nice sometimes too! I prefer postcards of places and local/famous landmarks, art and historical items. Single view postcards are my favourite but anything you pick out will be appreciated :)

colourful paper, magazine and book pages to use in journals and collages are always appreciated!

Tea: I like most kinds of tea but my favourites are black teas like Earl Grey and English Breakfast. I dislike any teas that taste like flowers


Rude people and bananas

You're never going to believe- but the ATC I thought was your re-send, was apparently the original one! I just received the re-send today. The ATC is amazing and I really appreciate both cards, thank you! ~Tracy
