About Me


I have been doing mail swapping for about three years now and I am having a lot of fun with it. Thank you to my good friend @blubutterfly for introducing swap-bot to me! I have a love of all things snail mail including: letter writing, postcards, stationary.

I like quirky, unique, homemade or vintage things. I appreciate thought provoking messages; a good quote from a philosopher, or touching poem is meaningful to me. I am an aromatherapist in my spare time, and I really enjoy naturally scented things.

I love nature and animals. Currently I have a calico cat and a Border Collie x Australian Shepherd. I love artistic tattoos, and have several myself, including a dragonfly, blue lotus, and a half sleeve that is nature inspired (bugs, bees, chickadees and dandelions). Even though I have a love of nature and animals I despise spiders so please do not send me anything spider related.

I am a vegetarian and I haven't met a fruit or vegetable that I didn't like. My favourite food is pizza, easy on the cheese and loaded with veggies. I am not much into sweets but crave savory foods.

I am not a coffee drinker, the occasional cafe latte excepting, but I LOVE tea. I like it traditional and simple. Orange Pekoe, Assam, or English Breakfast are my favourites. I like Earl Grey in the evenings. I enjoy flavoured black teas too. (I don't love green or herbal teas, but if you have an absolute favourite you want to share I am open to trying it.)

I am an avid amateur photographer. I typically photograph my daughter, nature, or landscapes. Looking at how light and shadow fall on things inspires me.

I have recently discovered Minimalism and am going through the process of de-cluttering my life both mentally and physically. I don't give a heart based on extras and don't look for those in my swaps unless its something extra special that you think I will truly enjoy and use. (see Things I Love, below)

I love to make cards and most of the time my swaps include cards and/or envelopes that I have made. I have an ETSY store where I sell a few of my items as well, linked above if you are interested!

Favorite Music

Electronic music is my favourite. I particularly love deep house and progressive psytrance. Indie Rock (hollow coves, X Ambassadors),. Some new country.

Favorite Television

I like to have fun binging on Netflix. My favorite series include: Community, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, and Gotham. I have fond memories of watching The X Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel.

I really enjoy watching YouTube. I get a lot of ideas for swaps and paper crafting there. I am also quite into minimalism and healthy eating, as well as alternative living. Some of my favorite YouTubers are: Brittany McCowan, Paper Letter Blog, Dactyl Life, Yoga with Adriene, lyriclover810, Clean and Delicious, Pick Up Limes, Break the Twitch, Living Big in a Tiny House, What I've Learned, Curious Life, The Rubin Report, Owen Benjamin, ODD Reality, Truth Stream Media

Favorite Movies

I love movies that make me think or laugh. I feel I have gone through enough grief in my life and typically go for feel good stories with happy endings or comedies. Some of my favourite movies include : One Week, Interstellar, The Martian, The Grand Budapest Hotel, 50/50, Mr. Right, Hancock, Love Actually, The Hunger Games, Deadpool, and The Princess Bride, but the list is ever evolving and varies greatly depending on my mood.

Things I love

Adventure Themes, Aromatherapy and Naturally Scented things, ATCs, Autumn, Bears, Blue, Botanical themes, Bullet Journaling, Butterflies, Bumblebees, Camping, Crows, Dandelions, Deer, Dragonflies, Ephemera, Die Cuts, FLOW magazine, Forest Themes, Foxes, Gardening, Handmade items, Hiking, Nature Themes, Magick, Mountains, Ocean/Sea, Organic Foods, Photography, Philosophy, Postcards, Purple, Rabbits, Raccoons, Shamanism, Survival/Prepping, Tags, Tea, Teal, Turquoise, Washi tape, Yoga

Comment: Thank you for the teas! I can't wait to try the mango one...! And thank you for the quotes & the notcard. Yes, I have briefly been in Western Canada, especially when we moved from Alaska to Nevada via car. I remember Lake Louise! I would gladly trade you Canada for Las Vegas. :)
Response: Lake Louise is one of my favorite locations in Canada. I've always wanted to see Alaska, although my parents have said its similar to Vancouver Island. Cheers!
