About Me

September 2019 update- I am now slowly getting back into swaps. I’m currently preparing to hike up to Everest Base Camp this November. I am pretty stoked about that.

Currently looking for pen pals from anywhere. What I would like is for us to send 1 or 2 letters by snail mail a month

**Ratings: I have 3 3’s. None of which are from 2019. I received one of them because I didn’t ask enough questions about the swap and I sent NEW stuff for a magpie art journal swap so I didn’t meet the requirements. The other 2 I had no control over because I sent my items and then our postal system went on strike and they were a week late. I communicated with both individuals but was given that rating. **

I am a single mom of four. I teach mixed media art to children ages 6-12 years old and work at a community centre. I love writing and have published a couple of books. I won first prize for one of my poems a few years ago and had one of my stories published in Chicken Soup for the Soul. I also love art journaling and photography. I have 2 cats and a dog. Art journaling is my favorite.

I've been keeping a journal since I was 13 years old so its been over 3 decades. I have quite the collection now!

Favorite Books

Some of the authors I like: *Stephen King *L.M. Montgomery *Charlotte Gray *Patricia Cornwell *Margaret Atwood *Sylvia Plath *Charles Dickens *J.K. Rowling *James Patterson

I am sure there are others I just can't think of right at this moment.

Favorite Movies

Some of my fav movies are: *Stand by Me *Fried Green Tomatoes *A Christmas Carol *The Colour Purple *Gremlins *Anne of Green Gables *Goonies *One Magic Christmas *Scrooged (with Bill Murray) *Stand by Me * It (both versions)

Favorite Television

I like mostly crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I am crocheting, writing in my journal or folding laundry. I don't usually sit down and watch a specific show.

Favorite Crafts

My absolute favourite is art journaling. I have been doing it a few years now. I especially like things I find lying around, missing playing cards, using markers etc. I also put in stuff that I come across during my journey. For example if I go to a movie I will paste my ticket stub in my journal. Or if I get a really cool birthday card. So my journals say a lot about me.

I also do a bit of crocheting. Mostly just scarves and baby blankets.

A Few Likes

*I collect Cabbage Patch Kids from 1983-1985 *Strawberry Shortcake *anything with anchors *Harry Potter (Harry, Hagrid, Dobby) *Vintage Looking items and items with lace *Maps (for art journal) * anything vintage

Beverages -I like peppermint tea, hot chocolate and apple cider :)

And snail mail, of course I love snail mail!!!

Dislikes

  • I’m not a fan of reward or emoji stickers...

*I don't have any allergies

Wish List

Wish List -stamped paper tags -vintage items to put in art journal (Lace, tea dyed paper, old photographs) -unused post cards -vintage paper -stickers -cool paper clips -vintage playing cards -sticky notes -tabs for journals/note books -mini stencils -mini art journal with a few pages done by you :) -vintage rubber stamps

Comment: Thanks for the card. My cat just recently passed away. My husband and I went to see the film "Art of Racing in the Rain." I started crying in the first scene and cried straight through for 2 hours. Husband said that is not the film to see when you've recently lost a pet. Susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: My condolences regarding your cat. We lost one of our cars, her name was Prim, in August. 💜

Newbie Friendly - Profile Hello #16

Hi hi Catina! I hope you have a lovely day! I also like(d) Care Bears, I mostly have all of my aunts care bears from when she was a kid - I also just found a care bear journal of mine that I used as a kid, it has some horrible drawings of all my pets.

Anyway,may you have a lovely Christmas!

x Jess
