About Me

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my profile!

I'm a French Canadian girl in her early thirties, mother of an almost one-year old daughter. I love penpalling and for the past 3 years, I have discovered the joys of swapping as well. I hosted many swaps here on Swap-Bot, both in private groups and the actual site.

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, I always send on time (I will go out of my way to send on time), and it's why I would prefer you contact me and give me a chance to re-send if something gets lost in the mail before rating.

Happy swapping!

Favorite Books

I love reading thrillers and crime novels as well as the occasional biographies and chick lit novels. I don't have any favorite authors. As long as the book summary sounds interesting, I will give it a try. I really like discovering new authors as well.

Favorite Television

I'm a fan of How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, and crime shows like Castle and Bones. I don't have cable so I only stream online.

Favorite Crafts

Pocket letters ant ATCs are my go-to crafts. I also do flipbooks, when I have the time. I'm an occasional cross stitch and like to color.

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:

  • Nothing violent (against any living creature)
  • Nothing with spiders (my phobia)
  • Nothing religious. Spiritual and/or paranormal is fine.
  • Nothing erotic/nude or related to politics.
  • Though I like to color, I don't like receiving coloring pages. Got too many coloring books at home!
  • For stickers and washi, see following section!

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!

“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

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.
