About Me

Hello! :)

My name is Angela, I am 36 years old and I live in Canada. I am kind of a daydreamer, and I love to read. I love books, I think they're beautiful. So much art goes into a book when you think about the cover, the paper used, the font for the title and the text, even the weight of a book makes me happy. I work in a bookstore, which is the perfect place for me! I love helping people find books, and I love discovering new books, too.

I really love nature, I am constantly amazed and awed by this beautiful world that we live in. Just listening to the wind blowing through the trees can calm my soul and soothe my nerves. I love water, rivers, lakes, ponds, oceans, it doesn't matter, I love them all.

I also love the rain, and thunderstorms. I have a deep fondness for trees, they seem so wise and protective. Trees have always been important to me, I spent a lot of time climbing them, sitting in their branches and telling them my secrets when I was younger. I don't think I could stand it if I had to live without many trees nearby.

I love all animals, especially birds (ravens, crows, magpies, chickadees, woodpeckers, owls, hawks and eagles being particular favourites), foxes, coyotes, wolves, bears and cats, both domestic and wild. Oh, and I really love bats, too!

I love the moon, and the night sky although I am more of a morning person than a night owl. I love to see the sun rise, and I love the freshness of a new day. I absolutely adore coffee, nothing is nicer than sipping a nice dark roast with cream and sugar while contemplating the day to come. Even better if I have mail to open or a friend to visit with!

I love art of all kinds, calligraphy, unique lettering, typography, song lyrics, poems, and quotes. I really love watercolours, they seem to make the most beautiful art!

I am a big fan of collage, I still like to cut pictures out of magazines and save pretty scraps of wrapping paper. I like to buy old books with pretty or cute illustrations so that I can cut them out and use them. I love old stamps or stamps with birds or flowers on them.

I take my mail very seriously and I don't take on swaps lightly. If I sign up I will follow through, always. I really want you to like what I send, and I always put care and thought into my mail. I hope that you will do the same.

I am also a mom and a wife, I have been married for 17 years and my husband is also my best friend. I have two lovely daughters that are 14 and 12, they are amazing people that I feel lucky to know. Family has always been important to me, and I am still very close to my parents and my siblings.

Favorite Music

Some of my favourite music/bands are: (in no particular order)

Ryan Adams

Jason Isbell

Justin Rutledge

David Gray

Gin Wigmore

Lindi Ortega

The Avett Brothers

Bruce Springsteen

Leonard Cohen

Tom Petty

and too many more to mention. I’ve been listening to a lot of folk music lately... I can’t seem to get enough! I love to listen to music while driving, cooking, crafting, doing housework, etc. I am always looking for new favourites!

Favorite Books

I have many favourite books, but at the top of my list right now are:

The Binding by Bridget Collins

The Clockmakers Daughter by Kate Morton

To the Bright Edge of the World and The Snow Child, both by Eowyn Ivey.

Anything by Nicholas Evans (not to be confused with Nicholas Sparks, who I dislike intensely.)

Anything by Brene Brown, but especially Daring Greatly, which was a life changing book for me.

Anything by Neil Gaiman. This man is amazing and I adore everything he writes, my most favourite right now is The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Love, love, love it.

Books by Rainbow Rowell, I will read anything she writes, same goes for Juliette Fay.

Poetry by Walt Whitman or Robert Frost.

I also love cookbooks!

Favorite Movies

A few of my favourite movies are: The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom... maybe I'll just say anything by Wes Anderson. :)

I also really like Terrence Malick, I really loved The New World.

I like Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink.

Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, Inception, and Boyhood.

I like old cheesy romances, like Under The Greenwood Tree.

Favorite Television

My husband and I like to watch tv shows together, it's mostly what we like to do to relax in the evenings. Right now I am loving Deadwood. I liked The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Lost, Mad Men, and Fargo. Also Game of Thrones, Rectify, The Wire, House of Cards, and Narcos. I love Adventure Time, and Rick and Morty, and I am a big Veronica Mars fan as well.

Things I Love

I love pretty paper, stickers, washi tape, and stationery. I like writing pads, and I can never find any here, just plain lined ones! I write a lot of letters, so anything related to letter writing is always welcome. I love pages from old books, especially if they have illustrations of plants, animals, or people, or poetry. I like to have interesting magazines to cut pictures out of. I always love colourful markers, gel pens, or black ink pens. Rubber or cling stamps that are plants, animals, snail mail, or the moon, sun, or planets. I love other people's art. I know a lot of people don't love handmade cards or postcards, but I would definitely choose quality handmade over store bought! I am a huge coffee lover, I also love chocolate. I love pressed flowers or leaves, and feathers as long as they are clean. Pretty stones or driftwood are also so lovely to receive. I like Calvin and Hobbes comics, and Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, too. And did I mention stickers? I love stickers!!

Dislikes

I am not religious, so please don't send me religious or spiritual items.

I am sensitive to scents/perfumes and I react badly to most types of makeup and skin products, so I would prefer to not receive these types of items.

I don’t prefer stickers or other items intended for children.

Comment: Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books. I read it a long time ago and found myself laughing at some parts. I really liked the postcard you sent me thank you so much! Those stamps you put on it are really nice. I can't tell what those lights are but they sure are pretty! I think I'm the same as you, except when I'm old I'll probably have a bunch of lapdogs running around barking at people lol!
