About Me

Hi there :)

I'm a 30something, living in Toronto, Canada. I live on the beach of Lake Ontario and love my neighbourhood! Where else can you see the CN tower, an endless beach, and small shops with a beach town vibe all at once?

I love to laugh. I know everyone says that, but I laugh at everything. I like goofing around and think that life shouldn't be taken too seriously. Life is better when you're singing/dancing/laughing.

My son and I are often doing random acts of kindness and set out to do at least one good deed a day. On the other side of the coin, we are constantly jumping out and scaring each other / pranking each other.

I love reading, shopping at thriftstores, garage sales, bingewatching tv shows, and crafting. I like to cross stitch, sew, colour, paint, sculpt, etch, and wood burn. I'm always looking for new fun ways to express myself creatively.

I have a soft spot for old dogs and rescued a 7 year old English bulldog Benny last Christmas. He is an incontinent lump who literally only eats, sleeps, and drools. He is missing most of his teeth but has two tiny bottom teeth that always poke out of his bottom lip. He looks like a walrus, and also looks like Jabba The Hut. He's perfect.

DISLIKES / No thank you's:

✘ Anything that perpetuates any sort of hate - no racism, fascism, homophobia, sexism, etc

✘ Seinfeld anything - I just don't get why people like it so much!

✘ Anything Trump - related

✘ Bibles, Q'urans, or anything religious (I respect all religions, and do not want to disrespect a religion or someone's hard work by disposing of something you send!)

✘ Family Guy, The Simpsons

✘ Coffee or coffee-related stuff, same for smoking / 420 related items. My son and I open my swaps together :)

✘ Wine - related stuff (Why is so much mom - culture centered around wine jokes?)

About my son

Any of my swaps can be directed to my son if you want! He'd love that.

He's an only child to a single parent, so definitely mature beyond his years. He's sarcastic, witty, warm, and sensitive. Loves videogames and has his own YouTube channel. He is a talented actor and vocalist and we are still debating exploring getting him an agent while he's still young and flawless. ;)

Here is a list of a few of his favourite things!

LIKES

✭ Pokemon anything: cards, school supplies, stickers, figures, accessories, anything.

✭Videogames: especially Mario/ Nintendo games. Splattoon, etc.

✭Pug / Bulldog stuff

✭Chocolates / candies that we can't get in Canada!

✭ Hot chocolate

✭ Disney pins for trading, Mickey Mouse ears, etc.

✭ Nerdy/Geeky stuff

✭ Harry Potter

✭ Bookmarks

✭ Erasers, fun school supplies

✭ Memes - esp rage face, troll face, etc.

✭ Practical jokes

✭ skateboarding culture, graffiti, etc

✭Lipbalm

✭ Bathbombs

✭ Lotion and sanitizers

✭ Random acts of kindness

✭ Marvel movies: he loves them all, but his favourite characters include Falcon, Black Panther and his all time favourite, Spiderman

✭ BLM & Feminism (the kid is woke)

He loves getting mail though, and is not picky at all :)

DISLIKES (and these are his, I'm not projecting!)

✘Anything religious

✘Anything that perpetuates gender roles or stereotypes

✘The Simpsons

✘anything to do with violent videogames

Post Card Preferences

If we're in a postcard swap and you're supposed to check my profile for my preference, thanks for taking the time! I'd love if you could write a little about yourself and what your typical day is like, if you can't think of anything to write. Write all over it, draw some doodles, whatever - pls no plain in envelopes (unless that's the swap) cause I love postage and love handwriting :)

Private Swaps?

I'd love to partake in private swaps - we could do crafts, specific things, themes, etc. I'm looking for someone to trade a shaker of Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning - maybe for something you can only get in Canada?

Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for all the awesome pins. I can't believe you sent that many extras. I hope I get to swap with you again to make up for it. =) My favorite was the Pluto Mickey ears, I hope you host this swap again in the future. Please let me know if you do. Happy swapping!

Comment: I like this card. I did not know Toronto had this square. I would rather go there instead of New York.

Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the fantastic stamps!! I LOVE them! And it's so cool that you got them from the oldest PO in Toronto. I memorized In Flanders Fields for a speech class in high school, so it was really neat to see that on a stamp. Welcome to Swap-bot! You're off to a great start, and I'm glad I got to "meet" you. :)
