About Me

Hello from the We(s)t Coast of Canada! I live here with my husband, 5 kids and 3 cats and am, what you call, indoorsy (despite living by the ocean and the mountains). I love writing, creating, reading, napping, drinking tea, and listening to music and dancing in my living room. :) My favourite things to do is to make cards and send snail mail! I have been penpal'ing for years in the traditional sense (writing long letters) and find an absurd amount of happiness sending things! I am a positive encouraging person who loves to make people smile! :)

**my daughter has an account as well and we live together, so if you come across both of us and wonder about the same addresses, that is why! She and I are similar, but you will quickly see we have different styles and crafting skills! :)

Favorite Crafts

I love papercrafts and am a cardmaker (my favourites are working with rubber stamps, water colouring, and heat embossing ...see my IG page listed above) @tHartInk

Journaling is another favourite of mine ---traditional writing as well as travel books -- I like working with mixed media and ephemera and am challenging myself to start an art journal.


My favourite book is Pride & Prejudice. I also love historical fiction (love Liz Curtis Higgs & T.L.Higley). And fantasy (like Chronicels of Narnia and Donita K. Paul)

my favourite movies are Disney's Beauty & the Beast (animated and the live action) and Pride & Prejudice (2005) and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977) I also love Anne of Green Gables, The Princess Bride, the Star Wars series and the original Marvel series. I like action movies, and comedy (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) and stuff by Guy Ritchie. (Sherlock Holmes, King Arthur)

I don't watch TV. Except for hockey -- when I can find a game and it's not too crazy loud at home. I'm a Canucks fan. Love old X Files, Friends, Scrubs, Firefly and Sherlock though, if that helps to know.

I love listening to Crowder, old skool Newsboys, CityAlight, Sovereign Grace, Citizens, Sarah Sparks, Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Apashe, and any music that has a strong beat and makes me move


To be honest, I don't have a lot of dislikes and am not picky. Receiving mail is fun so don't stress! Whatever I don't use, I pass on.

Things that make me happy: (in no particular order)

*tea (white, herbal, earl grey, green)

*washi (the traditional kind not decorative tape)

*buttons (with pins-- not the kind you sew with!)



*heart shaped things


*black licorice

*cats (don't hate me but I'm not a dog person at all, even though they're cute, lol)


*glittery/shiney things


*Bible verses and quotes



*crochet ribbon & paper doilies

*little pockets/envelopes for journals

*gnomes, faeries and cottagecore


*Classic Winnie the Pooh

*homesteading (I dream of having my own small farm!!) gardening, herbal medicines, apothocary, husbandry, self sufficient living, old wives tales


My favourite colour is yellow followed by grey and orange and blue and green and...

If you speak a different language other than English, I would love to learn a word or phrase! Tell me about traditions or what it's like where you live!

I don't like vanilla or heavily scented things, horror stuff, or ants.

Comment: Thank you! This was such a lovely swap - I really enjoyed reading it! Sorry to hear that your daughter was sick, I hope she's feeling better! Making cards is a beautiful way to share love. A "free kitchen" is such a good idea, I've never seen anything like that - Winnipeg could definitely use some of those. Thank you for sharing those verses with me as well and thank you for all the lovely things you included with this swap. I really enjoyed this swap - thank you for hosting it!
