About Me

Due to COVID-19, there will be postal delays. If you are in a country other than Canada I imagine these delays will be worse. Please message me before you rate if you have not received the swap goodies. I can resend if the mail has not reached you. Otherwise, please be patient because if I marked the item as sent I have sent it! ☺️

Hello, my name is Emily! I am studying to be a high school teacher. I will be able to teach English, philosophy, social science and fine art. The subject I enjoy most is philosophy, especially metaphysics, with fine art as a close second. I also enjoy science, especially quantum physics.

I moved to a Christmas tree farm on April Fool's Day in 2020. It is my first time living in the country. It has always been my dream to live in the country and I am loving it! I enjoy ATVing, hiking, swimming in the river and just being in nature. I love listening to the howling coyotes at night. They make a group yipping noise when they catch their dinner! The stars are also so beautiful!

I live in a military town with a large number of hunters. Even the mail truck has a hunting sticker on it, which I find quite comical. This has taken some getting used to as a vegetarian who is not a fan of violence. I am not used to so many gunshots and explosions! I think, however, that it is important to be open minded to different perspectives. I really enjoy learning about different practices, behaviors (psychology), viewpoints and lifestyles. Please feel free to include your opinions, thoughts, lifestyle etc. in your swaps about any topic or perspective. I am not easily offended.

I have a dog named Koby, an Australian kelpie & husky mix, and a rabbit named Miss Maisy Bunjamin (Maisy for short), a French lop. They are good friends who play fetch together, do tricks together and cuddle together. They are both rescues.

I occasionally come home with injured or abandoned animals that I find on walks. Koby always helps me take good care of them, while my boyfriend shakes his head. When I told my friend that he's limited me to two pets she laughed and said "he'll learn." Haha!

I am an active artist and regularly show and publish my work. Please see my website above if you are interested in seeing my work.

I also guest lecture in animal behavior studies at Humber College. I do a lot of activism work for students with disabilities with a focus on making service dogs more accessible for people who need them. I started the first self-trained service dog legislation/testing program for high school students in Ontario and won a hall of fame award when the program went national!

Comment: Thank you so much for the washi and everything! I loved looking through the goodies you sent :)
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed them! Thank you ☺️
Comment: I've had a ton of pets growing up, but never a rabbit! That's cool you used to rescue them! Sad that people would just let them outside! Do your rabbits free range in your home? One of my friends let hers do that!
Response: Yeah I find it sad as well. Yes she is free range in my house along with my dog. He's been around rabbits since he was a pup and is very gentle with her. Sometimes she'll come up to him, going nose to nose, and he'll lick her on her nose and then she hops in the air with glee (something called a "binky" that rabbits do when they are very happy). Ahh I love them 😍
Comment: Fairygardens sound so cute & like so much fun! I also want to look into fauxbonichi journaling!
Response: Yes I am excited to make one! I'll have to figure out how to winterize the structures for Canadian winters though, haha. Thank you 😄
Response: Thank you!
Comment: Making a fairy garden sounds like so much fun!
