About Me

UPDATED June 28: I am officially all caught up with my ratings (except for one swap and I have messaged the member). If I haven't rated you yet, it is because I haven't received your swap. Feel free to contact me for a resend!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my profile!

I'm a French Canadian woman in her early thirties, mother of a toddler, and full-time teacher.

I have been penpalling for many years and, 3 years ago, I discovered the joy of swapping! I just love preparing something for someone I don't know and knowing it will brighten their day. Even if a swap is sender's choice, I often take a look at my partner's profile to make sure I don't send something they don't like. I can't always accommodate, but I try as much as possible.

I take my swaps very seriously. That means that I always send on time. I actually go out of my way to send on time. Lost mail happens more often than we think! That's why I would prefer you contact me first and offer me a chance to re-send before rating me a 1.

For my likes and dislikes, see the sections below.

Happy swapping!

Favorite Books

I don't read as much as I would like to. Got too many things to do and too little time. I try to read about 20 books a year. My go-to genres are romantic comedies, mystery novels, and thrillers.

I participate in a lot of book log swaps here. They are my favorite swaps on Swap-Bot because I get to discover new books I wouldn't have known existed otherwise.

Favorite Television

I mainly watch French Canadian TV shows: Deuxième chance, Silence on joue, Un souper presque parfait, La voix, Les chefs!, Une autre histoire, Lâcher prise et District 31 (very late on that series though!).

Other shows I enjoy watching are How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Fuller House, Friends, Castle, Bones, Sugar Rush, home renovation shows, Border Security, and Queer Eye.

Recently started watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Really enjoying it!

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafting! Pocket letters (full and mini) and ATCs are my go-to crafts. I also do the occasional flipbooks when I have enough free time.

I do cross stitching in the fall and in the winter. I have a lot of unfinished projects in the basement that I'm looking forward to getting back into this fall!

I occasionally do some adult coloring as well.

Swaps - Likes

Looking for inspiration on what to send me? Here are things I would love to receive:

  • Touristic postcards from your country or area
  • Magnets (touristic)
  • Embellishments/die cuts for paper crafting
  • Blank notecards (with envelope)
  • Anything Harry Potter (especially Hufflepuff, my House)

Here are other things I like to receive but have enough of at the moment (however, I won't say no to them if you decide to send lol):

  • Sticker sheets
  • Washi tape (ADDICTED!)
  • Bookmarks
  • Small journals
  • Handmade envelopes

Swaps - Dislikes

I'm usually not picky when it comes to swaps, but here are things I would prefer not to receive:

  • No tea please. I prefer to buy my own tea bags.
  • Nothing violent (against ANY living creature)
  • Nothing religious. I don't follow any religion.
  • Nothing erotic/nude.
  • Nothing related to politics
  • Nothing vintage. I'm just not fond of those things.
  • Nothing I need to color. Sorry, just got too many of these things at home!

Stickers & Washi

I thought these deserved a section of their own. My wishes are just that... wishes. No obligation to send!

Stickers (likes): dolphins, butterflies, owls, and frogs

Stickers (dislikes): Disney, religious, children stickers (ie Paw Patrol, Spiderman, etc.), planner stickers

Washi samples: LOVE all kinds, but right now I am looking for themed samples (ie books, dolphins, butterflies, etc.).

Facebook Groups

On top of swapping here on Swap-Bot, I also admin a few Facebook penpalling groups. Come take a look and join if you are interested!

You can find the links at the top of my profile!

The Canadian Snail Mail Café - A pen pal group for Canadian residents. We also have weekly wishes, tags, and giveaways!

Penpals Across the World (Ladies Only 18+) - A safe Facebook group for women to find penpals worldwide. What makes us different is that we only accept members who are looking for penpals anywhere. Country specific posts (like UK only, or Canada only) are not accepted.

Bookworm Penpals - This group is still rather small, but it has started to grow. It is a penpal group for women who also LOVE to read! Join us and share your passion of reading with other members!

Kimspiration rated for We did WHAT for Christmas on Jan 5, 2021
Comment: Seems like you still had a lovely Christmas! But wow, normally 4 Christmas' in a day?! I'm from the Netherlands (but living in the UK) but the Netherlands has 2 Christmas days (25 and 26). And even though the UK only has one, we celebrated it on the 26th this year over Skype with our families, because my sister was celebrating it with her boyfriends family the 25th. We've send each other gifts and we opened them on skype. It was different this year, since we normally would go to the Netherlands or they would come here, but it was still fun! I do look forward though to a Christmas when we can be together with our families again. 🎄❤️

Profile Quote #12

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” ― Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

Here is one of my favorite (and true!) travel quotes... I hope you are inspired to travel as much as I am.

Laughing is one of the best exercises, it's like running inside your mind. You can do it almost anywhere and it's even better with a friend.
