About Me

A Note as of November 18 2021- I live in chilliwack bc which is currently experiencing a ridiculous amount of flooding, so while I am still home. Mail is being delivered within the city but not being moved out of the city currently. So I am completing the swaps I am in but they will likely take quite a while to reach people.

Hello! I am four gnomes in a trenchcoat A.k.a. Abi! I live in Canada and work as a barista and am a little bit of a coffee snob. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, sculpting, and writing. my favorite things to draw are skeletons and animals. though recently I have been mixing watercolors into some of my drawings. I love to collect all types of stickers and have made some of my own stickers too!

some of the things I have made can be found on my Etsy FromtHeart You can also find me on Instagram where I occasionally post some things I have made. my handle is also @fourgnomesinatrenchcoat on Instagram

A NOTE! Both my mom and I are on this site and since we live at the same home, we have the same address. I do not have a second profile it is just my mom (fierycanuck). While we do enjoy similar swaps we are not the same person!

Favorite Music

I am a huge fan of indie and electro music. most of the time I can be found with headphones in listening to music.

here are my current top ten songs: Achillies come down - the gang of youths

Brutus- the buttress

Perpetual mild illness- the original crooks and nannies

Hayloft- Mother mother

Of the night- Bastille

Meet me in the woods-Lord Huron

Comics- Caravan Palace

Psycho- kujah

Come around- MIA

NFWMB- Hozier

Favorite Books

My favorite book genre to read is fantasy. My favorite is rewritten fairytales. I love how authors are able to take a well-known story and rewrite it in a way that you never quite know where it is going.

My top two books are the lie tree by Frances Hardinge and seven wonders by peter lerangis

Favorite Movies

I am a huge fan of action movies! I love the fast pace and the suspense of them.

I usually will watch the same two movies or and over again until I can predict the next line of each movie, then I find two new movies and start the process over again.

the two movies I switch through right now are:

King Arthur: Legend of the sword

and Robin Hood (2018)

I also like to watch animated cartoons with my Mom and younger sister. our current favorites are: Miraculous Ladybug

teen titans go

and Gravity falls

Favorite Crafts

I love jewelry making, drawing, watercolors, letter writing, postcard making, sticker making, and sculpting with polymer clay.

Currently, I am making polymer clay charms and am really enjoying that!. My current favorites are some goldfish in a bag that I made using polymer clay and resin, along with some glow-in-the-dark UFOs with cows. Some of the things other things I have been making can be found on Etsy at Fromtheart.

I have recently discovered the joys of making envelopes! so most of the envelopes I send I have made and decorated myself! I Have also been making tags, pocket envelopes, and snail-mail folders too.

I have recently branched out into pressing flowers and using them in crafts. So if you have any advice or have some you would like to send along to me I would greatly appreciate it!

Likes and dislikes

Honestly, I can not think of something that I would not enjoy receiving. I just get excited about getting mail at all! I will not lower my rating if I did not like something you send. I would much rather receive something that brings you joy and that you enjoy sending. Don't stress it! anything I won't use will either be given to my siblings or will be used in another swap.

I am super interested in history and other cultures so if you write me a letter please tell me about your culture, religion or local history.

If you are sending to me in a postcard swap, I prefer blank postcards. not stamped and not written on unless the swap calls for something different.

drinks and snacks

I love trying new snacks and drinks so if you have anything you think I haven't tried please send it along!

I love tea! especially iced teas as I usually forget I made myself tea so it is cold by the time I have finished it.

I love coffee! I prefer sweet coffee but am willing to try any new types at least once.

I also like drink powders! they are a little hard for me to find but there are so many I have not tried yet that I would love to try!

Things I am always looking for

I'm sure I am not the only person who has a hard time finding certain crafty items. Here are a few that I have a hard time finding!

Anything gnome-themed! as you can probably tell by my username, I love gnomes!!

grid Washi tape

botanical Washi Tape

vintage Washi Tape


word stickers

clear stickers

green pens

Ephemera (vintage, fairytale, botanical,)

non-puffy stickers

seed paper

paper confetti

Anything fairytale-themed

If you have any of these things and are looking to get rid of them I will gladly take them off your hands!

Comment: Thank you for all the goodies
Comment: Hi Abi! This is SO lovely. The perfect simplicity of your embellishments and stitching is just outstanding. I love that it's not overly fussy and absolutely love the quotes--especially the Emily Dickinson. I'm often out looking for MYself with a lantern as well! I love the enclosures, too. This is so nice, it seems like a high-end purchase. Thanks so much for creating something special for me!
