About Me

Hello, I'm Anne-Marie! I'm 30-something and single, born and raised in Quebec, Canada. I enjoy reading, crafting, surfing social media, watching TV/movies/YouTube, and writing snail mail! :)

I also enjoy baking and decorating cakes and cookies, when I have the time. Once upon a time, I took a French pastry course and thought I'd like to have my own bakery/cake business, so I have several wedding cakes under my belt, but things change.

Favorite Crafts

One of my favourite crafting mediums is polymer clay. I (try to) make Christmas ornaments to sell at local craft fairs every year. I also make jewelry, cake toppers, figurines, etc. Anyone interested in private polymer clay swaps, let me know!!

I enjoy crocheting. I haven't really made anything more complicated than afghans and hats, but it's fun. Something to do in front of the TV in the winter, althought I haven't touched my yarn and hooks for well over a year.

Paper crafting... I have been playing around with pocket letters again and having fun with that. I adore anything stationery (Post-Its, memo sheets, letter writing sets, cute pens, notecards, postcards, washi tapes, stickers...).

Favorite Books

I love reading! I'm currently working toward a goal of reading 52 books in 2021.

My favourite genres are murder mystery/crime fiction, young adult (all of them, but especially romance and fantasy), and girly fluff reads. I also enjoy a good middle grade/ children's book (Harry Potter, Nevermoor...)

Some of my favourite authors are Louise Penny, Cecelia Ahern, J.K. Rowling...

I don't like choosing favourites (maybe you can tell), but if I had to choose a favourite book, it would be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I love the magic and all the imagery.

Favorite Television

Currently chipping away at Grey's Anatomy (first time) and Virgin River. I'm also obsessed with WandaVision and can't wait for the rest of the season!


I collect Harry Potter stuff! I am a Ravenclaw - that's the blue house, with the bird mascot. :)

I also collect Funko figurines! I have several Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and Disney characters. I think they're really cute.

I love handmade Christmas ornaments! I have a collection of crocheted snowflake tree ornaments. I also really love anything with gingerbread people.


Stuff you can (almost) never go wrong with: * cupcakes * polka dots * unicorns * mermaids * rainbows * cats * cacti * florals * books / bookstores / libraries

Favourite colours: * pink * turquoise / teal * purple * gold * mint green * peach / coral


Unfortunately, I DO NOT LIKE coffee or tea. I will on occasion drink a hot chocolate or apple cider, but for the most part I just prefer cold drinks. :)

However, if it is a swap requiring you to send a hot beverage and you only have tea/coffee, just send what you have. I can always pass them along!

I adore chocolate, but I don't really like chocolate scented items. I also don't like fruit & chocolate flavour combos. Chocolate & mint is great, tho ;)

I like most floral scents EXCEPT rose and lavender.


I've seen other people make a section like this, and it's a pretty great idea for profile-based swaps, so here goes...

  • Pretty stationery sets (matching letter sheets & envelopes)
  • Anything Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts (I'm in Ravenclaw)
  • Disney-related items (Peter Pan, Alice, any of the princesses...)
  • Funko Pop! figurines (esp. Disney or Harry Potter characters)
  • Chapters/Indigo gift card
  • Book quote items (art prints, jewelry, notebooks, etc)
  • Unused Canadian postage stamps (new or vintage)
  • Cute magnetic bookmarks
  • Treats from other countries (I don't care much for licorice, but my family members do, so if it's all you have, it's ok ;) )

2021 Profile Hello (forgot to write it sorry) Go Ravenclaws go! Once I shared with a friend of mine that I was confused I was placed into Ravenclaws b/c I'm "not all that smart". She replied that she saw me more of a Luna Lovegood than a Cho Chang. I decided to take that as a complement lol :). I loved hearing about your many hobbies, I wish I was talented enough at baking to accomplish a whole wedding cake, wow! As for the polymer clay, I just met someone in a different swap with a similar interest. Here's a link to his pf if you'd like to try and get in contact for a swap or something. idk https://www.swap-bot.com/user:JulianCorrales Have a good one :3

2021 Profile Hello

Hi Anne-Marie,

I enjoyed reading through your profile and am thrilled that we have several things in common, which makes sharing a hello so much easier!

I, too, collect Funko Pops, but mostly Marvel characters and some favorite TV shows and movies. My husband and I swap them as gifts.

I'm also a Harry Potter fan. In fact, it's about time for a re-read, so thanks for the reminder.

I LOVE coffee, but if we all liked the same things, the world would be a very boring place. For me, I'm not a wine drinker. Never learned to like it.

I hope you enjoy some fantastic swaps in 2021. It's been a crazy year and it doesn't look like we've quite cleared the hurdle yet, but I'm remaining positive.

Have a creative day! Mallie

2021 Profile Hello

Good Morning from Odessa, Texas! While reading your profile I noticed that you don't like coffee or tea! I can so feel you on the coffee but I just got to have my sweet iced tea from McDonald's! Hope you have a wonderful day and are staying warm! Hugs.
