CURRENT NEWS

August 21: Someone in or near Fargo North Dakota mailed a rak to my po box in the US back at the end of July. Unfortunately I no longer have access to my po box so I have been unable to pick it up. In the future please do not send anything, not even a postcard, to my po box without clearing it with me first as it costs me money to have them receive and then again every day they have to store it. To the kind soul who sent me the rak thank you for your generousity but I hope you understand!

About Me

I am 34 years old and live in the Canadian city of Surrey, BC.

I am a non-smoker but I do have a dog in my home....a brussels griffon/terrier cross named Mia.

I enjoy hosting various swaps and try hard to vet the swappers in them to avoid flakers etc. However, if you do wind up flaked on please let me know so I can try and make it right for you!

My Favorites & My Collections

I have listed a few of my favourites and my collections to potentially help my partners. Please know though that just because something isn't on my favs list etc doesn't mean I won't enjoy what you pick to send my way!

Favourite colours: teal (leaning more towards a lighter teal versus the dark turquoisey teal) & coral

Favourite tea: Country Peach Passion from Celestials. I enjoy most any fruit teas though.

Favorite treat: candy like Skittles or sour candies. Please do not send chocolate.

Favourite bug: butterflies and dragonflies

Favourite bird: owls and hummingbirds, but I really do love all birds. I especially enjoy images of vintage (or vintage inspired) illustrated birds.

Favourite flowers: tiger lilies, lilac, lavender

Favourite scent: lilac, lavender, melons, peach

Favourite sports teams & athletes: NHL Edmonton Oilers, CFL Edmonton Eskimoes. Fav athletes are Wayne Gretzky and Trevor Linden.

Other themes I enjoy: Disney, florals, gnomes, Paris (especially the architecture), Victorian, Winnie the Pooh ♡, Ziggy (remember him?)

Paper!

My papercrafting journey started with scrapbooking in '98 or so, then cards, then I fell hard for pocket letters in '15, and now I am loving ATC's!

Check out my Flikr photos (link at the top) to check out some pocket letters I have created.

I am also obsessed with paper and paper goods...hoarder, collector or whatever you call it I am that! Notebooks, scrapbook paper, notepads....I love it all!

I use a planner and would be eager to receive any goodies to use in that including washi samples, icon stickers like paydays, cute clips etc.

Postcards

I like receiving them "naked" or in an envelope. I don't mind receiving well-made & sturdy Zazzle cards but please no handmade cards or ad/freebie cards unless the swap calls for it.

  • postcards tied to my likes/collections

  • ocean/beach scenes

  • mountain scenes

  • touristy postcards from anywhere!

    • I would esepcially love to receive any from cities across Canada, New York NY, New Orleans LA, and Paris France.

Crafty Bits I Would Love

  • acrylic stamp blocks
  • adhesive tapes, foam tape or strips, foam dots/squares (do not need liquid glue, gluesticks, or ATG tape)
  • collage sheets on cardstock paper
  • ephemera (vintage book papers, diecuts, punchies, fussy cut images on cardstock paper etc)
  • Graphic 45 anything
  • personalized address labels
  • washi tapes, incl. samples

Please do not send....

I unfortunately do not do any other crafts (other than papercrafting) like knitting, candlemaking, sewing etc thus I can not make use of any items for other crafts like fabric, yarn, knitting needles, pattern books etc.

I am pretty easy to please overall but below are the other things I dislike or simply just have to much of already.

  • chocolate
  • gum
  • gory themed items
  • makeup
  • nail supplies (fake nails, nailpolishes, nail stickers etc)
  • orange pekoe tea
  • paper straws
  • perfume or perfume samples
  • religious items such as brochures, etc (I do like postcards featuring churches though)

Favourite Movies & Television

MOVIES

I am a huge lover of Disney, Pixar, and DreamWorks movies like Happy Feet, Toy Story, Shrek, etc. My fav of course is Winnie the Pooh :)

I am a big fan of both Paul Walker and Vin Diesel so pretty much anything with either of them in it I love...any of the Fast & Furious movies, XXX, etc.

I also enjoy the musical/dancing focused movies. Grease 1 & 2, Dirty Dancing 1 & 2, Footloose (original and remake), High School Musical series etc.

TELEVISION

Comedies: Golden Girls, Big Bang Theory, Two Broke Girls, Two and a Half Men, The Odd Couple (new one, never watched the original), Friends, Frasier

Drama: NCIS, NCIS LA, CSI Vegas, CSI Miami, Hawaii 5-0 (new one, never watched the original), Magnum PI, Murder She Wrote

Educational: River Monsters, Zoo Juniors, Food Factory, Food Factory USA, How It's Made, Mythbusters

My Mom

My Mom is my very best friend and is my world. I may from time to time join swaps/play tags and ask for a gift/stocking stuffer for her instead of me so I wanted to tell you a bit about her and her likes.

Her name is Mavis and she is in her mid 50's. Her birthstone is a ruby, she is a Leo, and her favourite color is green-yellow (something like granny apple green, lime green, etc).

She most enjoys watching "her stories" on tv....NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, Hawaii 5-0, Criminal Minds, etc. She likes reading magazines and short article type books (think of the facts & trivia bathroom reader type books lol). No chapter books please. She also really enjoys refinishing wood furniture/items like tables, jewelry boxes etc. She doesn't do ANY other craft.

She likes anything blingy or sparkly, postcards or atc's with a hummingbird, cardinal bird, or vintage items or images on them (like an old timey stroller, or vintage ladies etc), anything that says "Live, Laugh, Love" on it, and anything Calgary Flames (ugh don't even start me on that lol).

Treatwise she enjoys chocolate (no dark or mint flavour please), caramel flavour, and green tea. Please do not send gum for her.

Anything you are sending to her please address to Mavis Armitage. She has the same address as me though.

Angels

I understand life happens and will give people a second chance to make things right. So if you have flaked on me, and want to make it up, please message me!

Listed below are swaps I have been flaked on (thankfully not many) and the kind angel that came forward.

Sparkly-Inchie; angelled by @JudalineZ thank you!

Where You Live PC November; angelled by @LucyToons thank you!

Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous pocket letter - I love it! All of the little details are fantastic, and it was such a fun package to open. (And air conditioners really are a lifesaver! When we bought our house a few years ago, we had to replace the furnace soon after. We went ahead and paid the extra for central air while we were at it, and I'm so glad we did!)
Response: I am glad you enjoyed the pocket letter!
