About Me

Hello, I'm Anne-Marie! I'm 30-something and single, born and raised in Quebec, Canada. I enjoy reading, crafting, surfing social media, watching TV/movies/YouTube, and writing snail mail! :)

I enjoy baking and decorating and I took a French pastry course a few years ago.

Favorite Crafts

I dabble in lots of things, but these are the ones I've done the most/had the most success with...

One of my favourite crafting mediums is polymer clay. I (try to) make Christmas ornaments to sell at local craft fairs every year. I also make jewelry, cake toppers, figurines, etc. I would love to do a related swap sometime!!

I enjoy crocheting. I haven't really made anything more complicated than afghans and hats, but it's fun. Something to do in front of the TV in the winter.

Paper crafting... I have been playing around with pocket letters recently and having a lot of fun with that. I have also dabbled with flip books in the past and am thinking about trying that again, I adore anything stationery (Post-Its, memo sheets, letter writing sets, cute pens, notecards, postcards, washi tapes, stickers...).

I have also recently picked up sewing again. My most recent projects have been reusable makeup pads, "un-paper towels" and book sleeves.

Favorite Books

I love reading! I'm currently working toward a goal of reading 100 books in 2020.

My favourite genres are murder mystery/crime fiction, young adult (all of them, but especially romance and fantasy), and girly fluff reads. I also enjoy a good middle grade/ children's book (Harry Potter, Nevermoor...)

Some of my favourite authors are Louise Penny, Cecelia Ahern, J.K. Rowling...

I don't like choosing favourites (maybe you can tell), but if I had to choose a favourite book, it would be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I love the magic and all the imagery.

Favorite Television

I have been watching more YouTube than TV or movies lately, but there are new seasons on Netflix of Umbrella Academy and Good Girls that are calling to me! I also really want to make time to watch The One and Only Ivan and Star Girl on Disney+, and I can't wait for Mulan to become available!


I collect Harry Potter stuff! I am a Ravenclaw - that's the blue house, with the bird mascot. :)

I also collect Funko figurines! I have several Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and Disney characters. I think they're really cute.

I love handmade Christmas ornaments! I have a collection of crocheted snowflake tree ornaments. I also really love anything with gingerbread people.


Stuff you can (almost) never go wrong with: * cupcakes * polka dots * unicorns * mermaids * rainbows * cats * cacti * florals * books / bookstores / libraries

I'm quite girly, so I enjoy things like: * nail polish * hair accessories * jewelry

Favourite colours: * pink * turquoise / teal * purple * gold * mint green * peach / coral


Unfortunately, I DO NOT LIKE coffee or tea. I will on occasion drink a hot chocolate or apple cider, but for the most part I just prefer cold drinks. :)

However, if it is a swap requiring you to send a hot beverage and you only have tea/coffee, just send what you have. I can always pass them along!

I adore chocolate, but I don't really like chocolate scented items. I also don't like fruit & chocolate flavour combos. Chocolate & mint is great, tho ;)

I like most floral scents EXCEPT rose and lavender.


I've seen other people make a section like this, and it's a pretty great idea for profile-based swaps, so here goes...

  • Pretty stationery sets (matching letter sheets & envelopes)
  • Harry Potter merch (Ravenclaw or Hogwarts in general)
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them merch (anything Niffler or Newt Scamander)
  • Disney-related items (Peter Pan, Alice, any of the princesses...)
  • Funko Pop! figurines
  • Chapters/Indigo gift card
  • Book quote items (art prints, jewelry, notebooks, etc)
  • Unused Canadian postage stamps (my Post Office is small and we don't always get all the pretty new stamps)
  • L.O.L. Surprise! Doll
  • aluminum crochet hooks with handle (6.0mm to 8.0mm sizes)
  • Magnetic bookmarks
  • Treats from other countries (I don't care much for licorice, but my family members do, so if it's all you have, it's ok ;) )

Comment: So kind of you to resend, sorry the original was lost. Mail as been so unpredictable this year I only assumed it wasn’t your fault. I just received a letter from my own country that took 44 days🙈🥴 Its a crazy year for mail! Anyway, your beautiful handwriting sure does spice up those notebook papers! Thanks for sharing a small part of your world with me. Happy New Year!
Response: Aww, thank you for your kind words, and for the rating. Happy New Year to you, too!

Comment: Thanks for the coffee owl postcard! I’ve always loved snail mail too. I’m glad I found Swap Bot, so I can send more. Most of my friends and family are indifferent to sending mail.
Response: I can definitely relate. I'm glad you enjoyed the card :) Thanks for the heart! Best wishes!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard, and birthday greetings! My cat did indeed sit on my lap for most of my birthday as I read a book (she is not usually a lap cat so it was special.)
Response: That is special! My cat is not a lap cat either, so I know how that any kind of snuggly affection is very special indeed!

Comment: Thank you for the letter. I hope you get through the tough interviews to find what you're really looking for. Amazing looking cakes too!
Response: I did find a job through a spontaneous interview. I don't think I'm going to love it, but it's something to do and I'm earning a paycheck again :) Thanks!
Petaltea rated for What are you reading #1 on Sep 2, 2020
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter Anne-Marie! The magical read-a-thon sounds incredible. Too bad it’s being discontinued! I am going to look up There’s something about Sweetie because that sounds like a cute feel good book. I loved your tea and stickers. Your handwriting makes me jealous! Thanks again, Robyn
Response: Aw thanks! There's Something About Sweetie was very cute, finished it on the weekend. I hope if you read it that you also enjoy it! Glad you liked the extras. Take care!
riftvegan rated for TGIF Weekend Notecard #208 on Aug 31, 2020
Comment: Aw, what a bummer that the job interview didn't work out after all. Hope you find something that's fulfilling! Thanks for sharing your roller coaster weekend with me.
Response: I actually ended up walking into a spontaneous interview last Monday and got a job there, working as a cashier. I wouldn't call it fulfilling, necessarily, but it's a change of pace and it's a paycheck. It's been another crazy week and a half! Thanks :)

Welcome to Inspiration Station!

LilithFaye on Sep 18, 2015:

Thank you for responding! I was just curious, I know that it's pretty common for people with longer names (me included) to have nicknames and preferences. I like for people to use my full name too (Teshia) but a lifetime of mispronunciations has made me answer to just about anything as long as the person is looking in my general direction lol. A lot of my friends prefer to call me Tish, though I've gone by Tesh, and even things like Tissue and Tshirt. My siblings are the ones responsible for those last two lol.
