About Me

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.

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!

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!

Carly rated for Inchie Magnet Swap on Jul 12, 2021
Comment: ABI!!!! OMG...I LOVE THE MAGNETS! My husband, who doesn't really get excited about anything, LOVED the little pond...I can't BELIEVE you created a pond with rocks and fish and you used resin (or whatever magical stuff you used) ON AN INCHIE! I'm posting a picture on my blog-the other two would have been wonderful on their own...but the "pond" was honestly one of the most creative and amazing I've ever received in the history of swapping! I'm still looking at it as I write this! Thank you so much...for the wonderful work AND participating in my swap. I hope I earned a star from you as a coordinator (Two swaps in and I still don't have one...talk about being crushed πŸ˜‚) but I'd trade every star for what you sent. You are truly so talented!!!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed them! I had so much fun trying to figure out the pond one. I made it out of polymer clay an resin.
Comment: Thank you for paper scrap crafts. I also liked the decorated envelope.
Comment: Everything is so cute. Cant wait to try the Dandion syrup the cold water infusion. The ears are very cute. And I love wax seals....
