September 2019 update- I am slowly getting back into swaps. Iβm currently preparing to hike up to Everest Base Camp this November. I am pretty stoked about that.
Currently looking for pen pals from anywhere. I would like is for us to send 1 or 2 letters by snail mail a month ~~~Please note all my swaps come from a pet friendly and smoke free π‘ ~~~ **Ratings: I have 3 3βs. None of which are from 2019. I received one of them because I didnβt ask enough questions about the swap and I sent NEW stuff for a magpie art journal swap so I didnβt 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 NEVER FLAKE ON MY SWAPS. Please contact me if there is an issue
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.
π Authors I like... π Stephen King π L.M. Montgomery π Charlotte Gray π Patricia Cornwell π Margaret Atwood π Sylvia Plath π Charles Dickens π J.K. Rowling π James Patterson

Some of my fav πΏ π₯ are: πΏ Stand by Me Movie πΏ Fried Green Tomatoes πΏ A Christmas Carol πΏ The Colour Purple πΏ Gremlins πΏ Anne of Green Gables πΏ Goonies πΏ One Magic Christmas πΏ Scrooged (with Bill Murray) πΏ Stand by Me πΏ It (both versions)
I like mostly πΊ crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I crochet or write. 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. My journal π say a lot about me.
I also do a bit of crocheting. Mostly just scarves and baby blankets.
