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!
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.
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)
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.
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.
*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
