CURRENT NEWS

1/28/17: I will be taking a break from swapping during Feb & probably March as I will be moving at the end of Feb. I will be sending my last swap due in Feb out but won't be joining any new ones due during Feb/March until I am settled.

About Me

I am 33 years old and live in the Canadian city of Surrey, BC.

I work full-time doing admin work at a trucking company but am lucky enough to have my weekends off for crafting etc :) I love all animals and 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, my collections, and things I can always use more of below in order 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. I have also just tried Pukka - Detox and I love it!

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, watermelon, 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?)

My Collections

I have a plethora of things I collect....

  • bird figurines (specially owls & hummingbirds)

  • Disney mugs & figurines

  • Human Bean figurines

  • paper and paper goodies (see below lol)

  • Winnie the Pooh anything

Paper!

My drug...woops my craft of choice is papercrafting. It 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!

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 :)

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.

  • postcards tied to my likes/collections

  • ocean/beach scenes

  • mountain scenes

  • touristy postcards from anywhere!

I am specifically looking for the following provinces...Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

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)
  • embossing powders
  • Graphic 45 anything
  • personalized address labels
  • planner goodies like event stickers
  • ribbons
  • washi tapes, incl. samples

Crafty Bits To Swap

Below is a list of some things I would love to send your way. If you are interested in a private swap please PM me!

  • card blanks w/envies

  • cutouts from magazines etc

  • diecuts & punches

  • game pieces/cards

  • notecards w/envies

  • playing cards

  • postcards (you pick a theme you like)

  • stickers (may be full sheets, partial sheets, or nicely cutout stickers)

  • vintage book pages

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
  • gory themed items
  • makeup
  • nail supplies (fake nails, nailpolishes, nail stickers etc)
  • orange pekoe tea
  • paper clips
  • paper straws
  • perfume or perfume samples
  • pocket letter sleeves
  • 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 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: 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, chocolate (no mint or dark please), 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).

Comment: Thank you for the nice skates card. I'm also of Ukrainian descent, and raised in Eastern Orthodox faith. There are other faiths in the Ukrainian culture, like Pentacostal, which I wasn't aware of until dating Hubby. I will be cutting the January Christmas celebrations short next year, as will be on holiday and beginning to travel to FL at that time. I'm glad you have wonderful Christmas memories from both Christmas traditions. The best to you and your family!
