About Me

Hi there, I love giving and receiving and have enjoyed swapping - however, due to personal reasons, I have been off this site for a number of years (5 yrs?), and just logged back on this year. I am enjoying swapping again!

I have an adorable Bichon Poodle mix - Darcy is just gorgeous and such a sweety!!

I live in Canada, and I love my country and my city, Toronto.

I love pretty and dainty things - trinket holders, journals, notebooks, stationary, bookmarks, stock paper, decorated paper, stickers, washi tapes, ribbon, jewels, tea cups...

I love the colour blue, any shade of blue. Love the ocean and all it holds.

I love to read when I can find the time and squeeze it in between family and work. I am currently in a book club and we are reading The Maid by Nita Prose.

I love knitting but am in early learning. I have created several scarves. I love all types of scarves and shawls. Want to learn how to knit socks next. Love warm hand knit socks or any type for that matter. And I love mittens, gloves and scarves.

I love travelling and have been lucky in that I've visited several Caribbean Islands, a few American locales and a few European locales.

I love fragrant hand creams, fragrant candles, fragrant body washes and lotions. I love anything coconut or shea!

I am a flower lover - any kind really.

I am not much of a make-up girl but love lip balms, glosses and lipsticks. I am into good quality wallets and handbags.

I have a few small collections - shells, sea glass, small teddy bears, small elephants, notebooks, and a larger collection of tea cups as well as a large collection of yarn. I also collect bookmarks, post cards and pretty stickers. I collect dark chocolate and teas for consumption (except green teas). I love coffee! and I do crave salt over sweet most of the time :)

I like forest animals - foxes, chipmunks, deer, skunks, squirrels... and birds too (blue ones are a favourite). Love other animals too: elephants, dogs.

I would like to receive things related to my likes and collections and also:

Sharpies, Steadtlers, pastels

Pretty tissues

Handmade cards and crafts


It is nice to be a member and am looking forward to rejoining the fun and joy of swapping again.

Comment: That was a nice collage on your postcard. It came through the mail well. Thanks!
Comment: Hi Maria! Just received your swap today. Which came in one of those post office bags. As it was literally destroyed. I don't know what post office it was. But they tried to tape some of the envelope down. I don't know what's missing. But there was 2 note cards and 2 little note papers. I love the note cards & papers though! No need to resend. I'm perfectly happy with what there was. Plus, I couldn't find the swap either, until now anyway. As your note was missing as well. Happy swapping!
Response: hi there! I am so so sorry to hear this. it's the second of this swap that has been destroyed in the mail :( I appreciate you letting me know and the rating you provided me. I think I will follow up with the others in this swap as well
Comment: I just got your swap and the envelope was almost destroyed T.T it ruined one of the little envelopes inside but that's okay! I have plenty of envelopes to spare haha. It took me a minute to try and find what swap you were from but I'm hoping this is the one ~ Happy swapping and thanks again c:
Response: Hi! Oh no, I am so sorry to hear that happened :( Gosh, I hope that doesn't happen to all the others I sent out... hope you liked all that was inside the envelope!
