About Me

Hello from the We(s)t Coast of Canada! I live here with my husband, 5 kids and 3 cats and am, what you call, indoorsy (despite living by the ocean and the mountains). I love writing, creating, reading, napping, drinking tea, and listening to music and dancing in my living room. :) My favourite things to do is to make cards and send snail mail! I have been penpal'ing for years in the traditional sense (writing long letters) and find an absurd amount of happiness sending things! I am a positive encouraging person who loves to make people smile! :)

**my daughter has an account as well and we live together, so if you come across both of us and wonder about the same addresses, that is why! She and I are similar, but you will quickly see we have different styles and crafting skills! :)

Favorite Crafts

I love papercrafts and am a cardmaker (my favourites are working with rubber stamps, water colouring, and heat embossing ...see my IG page listed above) @tHartInk

Journaling is another favourite of mine ---traditional writing as well as travel books -- I like learning new styles and techniques.

Books/Movies

My favourite book is Pride & Prejudice. I also love historical fiction (love Liz Curtis Higgs & T.L.Higley). And fantasy (like Chronicels of Narnia and Donita K. Paul)

my favourite movies are Disney's Beauty & the Beast (animated and the live action) and Pride & Prejudice (2005). I also love Anne of Green Gables, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Princess Bride, the Star Wars series and the original Marvel series.

I don't watch TV. Except for hockey -- when I can find a game and it's not too crazy loud at home. I'm a Canucks fan. Love old X Files, Friends, Scrubs, Firefly and Sherlock though, if that helps to know.

I love listening to Crowder, old skool Newsboys, CityAlight, Sovereign Grace, Citizens, Sarah Sparks, Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Apashe, and any music that has a strong beat and makes me move.

Likes/Dislikes

To be honest, I don't have a lot of dislikes and am not picky. Receiving mail is fun so don't stress! Whatever I don't use, I pass on.

Things that make me happy: (in no particular order)

*tea (white, herbal, earl grey)

*washi (the traditional kind not decorative tape)

*buttons (with pins-- not the kind you sew with!)

*stationary/pens

*chocolate

*heart shaped things

*lettering

*black licorice

*cats (don't hate me but I'm not a dog person at all, even though they're cute, lol)

*butterflies

*glittery/shiney things

*stickers

*Bible verses and quotes

*vellum

*flowers

*crochet ribbon & paper doilies

*Canadiana stuff (ie: Roots, Olympic gear, old HBC)

*little pockets/envelopes for journals

*gnomes, faeries and cottagecore

*rainbows

*Classic Winnie the Pooh

*homesteading (I dream of having my own small farm!!) gardening, herbal medicines, apothocary, husbandry, self sufficient living, old wives tales

*memes

My favourite colour is yellow followed by grey, orange, green and blue

If you speak a different language other than English, I would love to learn a word or phrase! Tell me about traditions or what it's like where you live! I love learning about other cultures and families!

I don't like vanilla or heavily scented things, horror stuff, witchcraft or ants.

Comment: Lori-Anne - Your November card creations are delightful. I am going to borrow your beautiful idea of the snowflake on the velum. And the gold thread is a nice touch. Thank you for the extras of the hand warmers. We have a bit of snow here. Take care, D
Response: you're so welcome!! Vellum and thread are my go-to -- it's an easy way to add to a card! :) We just got snow today and it's supposed to snow all week... but we'll see if it actually does!

Comment: Thank you so so so much for the wonderful happy swap that made my day. I loved your note and I agree with your thoughts. I have been to many places in Canada and my family preferred it over most anywhere. We never went to the pacific side but up into New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I miss going so often as we did every year. Life changes but I have many wonderful memories. Merry Merry Christmas :)
Response: I would love to go to the East Coast -- its on my Bucket List! It's sad how life gets in the way of living, eh? :) Wishing you much happiness this Christmas! <3

Comment: Thank you for the two pretty handmade cards! They were reminiscent of the classic SU! style I once knew. Thank you for your letter too sharing your experience with making cards. I will PM you to answer some of your questions. Hope you will receive my cards soon - one is "classic style" and the other is "my style" 😉
Response: the nice thing about being a retired-SU demo is being able to use old stuff and not feeling badly! LOL .... although it does show my age, hahaha!

Comment: Thank you for the great fall/thanksgiving themed cards! I am looking forward to sending them out next year for sure. You asked who was sending me paper straws in your note....it was really back when I was doing box destashes where people can send whatever crafty items they want. They are cool but I just don't use them for crafts or drinking is all :)
Response: LOL Thanks for clarifying! This is why I get nervous doing de-stash boxes!! :)

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card and very nice goodies. I enjoy hearing from you. I loved your note and one day at a time. Right ! I did find the very same kind of envelope punch board at JoAnne's. I got mine that broke after a couple uses through Amazon and it came from Australia.. LOL
Response: so glad that you got a replacement!! It sure makes things easier! I am regretting getting rid of my ScorePal; I wasn't using it but now I have lots of uses if I had one!!! It's going on my Christmas list now. haha. <3
