Please no glitter!!
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! I also take pictures of each of my swaps ☺️
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!

I love matchbooks!! Especially since I heard that people used to write their phone numbers inside when they first met a crush, so that the person remembered to call when they used the matches.
