Please Read...!

Hello! And thanks for reading my profile!

If you do NOT receive my swap please PM me first before rating!! I have never had a poor rating and take great pride in that!

I always send my swaps within a few days of partnering - much before swap deadline!! ALWAYS!

I keep track of my swaps (almost obsessively), sent by me and you, received by me and you, etc... It's kind of a fun process actually.

I would like to know YOU got my swap so if I PM you, I'm not just seeking a rating, I would like to know my swap actually arrived.

If you are actually reading this, can you please make a comment to the right here? Just a hi, hello or something! I'm curious to know people are actually viewing my profile. :p

Profile Last Updated: March 17th, 2019

About Me

My name is Beth and I am thirty-six and I am a baker!
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada and have a cat named Butter, a 13 year old daughter I call Fe and a spouse of 8 years named Luke.

I enjoy many things like stickers, washi, pen palling, penguins, TV, baking, travel/exploring, etc... I also love to decorate my envelopes for swaps and pals. I occasionally even make flipbooks.

I have been pen palling since I was 11. If you are interested in becoming pals:

I am interested in writing (and reading) medium to long letters, people who have some of the same interests as me, ladies ages 30 and up, who like being creative, etc... Also, someone who will write back "right away" (ish). I pen pal to make friends and I find it hard to get to know someone if I have to wait a couple months for a reply. Personally, my goal is to write back within a week but recently it has been a bit longer than that. Pen pals in Canada would be awesome but anywhere, just send me a PM and tell me a little about yourself! I write in English but I can understand and write some French.

Swapping

I love mail! And the color purple!!
I save/cut out my addresses you write on my swap envelopes. I don't know why, I just have a huge collection of them now! So, if you care to, decorate it up! Simple or a lot! I also prefer actual postage stamps.

My favorite types of swaps are generally sticker related, washi samples, and happy mail/profile-based flat swaps.

Occasionally I make/draw my own stickers for swaps. Wanna give it a try with me? Send me a message!!

I would prefer to send flat swaps, as they are cheaper on postage but that doesn't mean the odd swap can't be bigger.

Canada swaps! I would love Canadian swaps! Mostly because shipping is cheaper.
USA swaps are fine, it is cheaper than international.
International swaps are ok but postage is super expensive so light/flat swaps for the most part.

I do sign up for a lot of international swaps so I guess it's only "luck" when I get to send within Canada or to the USA. :p

I am usually always open to private swaps, just send me a PM! Also, I would love to have some regular basis swappers for stickers and/or washi samples!

What I do NOT like

I want to say I am not overly picky but by making this list, maybe I am? :p

General:

  • Rude people
  • Onions, coconut, and tea
  • the color Red

Stickers:
The only exceptions to this list is penguin stickers.

  • Puffy/Foam Stickers
  • Epoxy, dimensional Stickers
  • Word only teacher stickers (doesn't mean I don't like words on stickers)
  • Bent or folded sticker sheets
  • Cut sticker sheets to fit an envelope (unless I say it's ok)

Washi:

  • word only tape, unless it says "Faith"
  • red tape
  • plastic tape. It's not washi, I won't use it and no one likes it (PM if you do tho...)
  • Deco tape/dollarstore "washi". I will use it. Just not a fan.

What I have to offer

... but not limited to:

General:

  • Washi samples
  • Deco tape/dollarstore "washi" samples
  • Vintage & modern postcards (mostly from Canada, USA and Europe)
  • Stationery paper & envelopes
  • Unused greeting cards (Christmas, birthdays & sympathy mostly)

Stickers:

  • Vintage sheets & Sandylion/other Mods.
  • Loose stickers (random or specific)
    (50 or more at a time. 100+ would be better)
  • Sticker Flakes
  • Sticker sheets (random or specific)
    (3 sheets very minimum. 5+ would be better)
    • Variety
    • Cartoon characters
    • Holidays (Christmas and Halloween mostly)

My Wish List

Things, in general, I would enjoy receiving:

  • Stickers (see details below)
  • Washi (see details below)
  • Unused Canadian stamps, any value!
  • Diddl stationery & stickers
  • Sandylion sticker albums (5.5" x8.5" - with or without stickers :p)
  • Cute or colored envelopes (no red!)
  • Sanka coffee (usually an orange packet)

It is OK to send me:
but I don't really care to swap for them (does that make sense?). These can be included in flat or profile-based swaps and as freebies.

  • Coffee
  • Mint or regular Hot Chocolate
  • Chocolate
  • Postcards - I do not sign up for postcard swaps as they're not my priority and postage is just too expensive for a single card. I can send you enveloped & blank postcards from my stash tho but I don't just want postcard specific swaps... If that makes any sense? I prefer:
    • Mailed with a message and stamp, not in an envelope!
    • Multiple images on one card is a bonus!
    • of views (cities/towns or mountains/large landscapes)
    • of real penguins
    • of something really beautiful or purple.

Washi, in general:

  • A ๐Ÿ’— for sure if you send my samples on a Joker card!
  • Any size/wideness
  • Samples: minimum of 18" unless otherwise stated in a swap.
  • Still on rolls, if you like?
  • Plain, solid colors are welcome!
  • Animals! Esp. birds, penguins, owls, whales, mice/rats, butterflies...
  • Polka dots! And other fun designs.
  • Colors: mostly blue, green, purple, yellow, black but any (except red unless it is really cool!)
  • Holidays: any... non-religious.
  • NO THANKS: word only tape, unless it says "Faith".
  • NO THANKS: red tape.

Stickers, in general:

  • My specifics list below.
  • FLAT stickers only! (penguins are the exception)
  • Sandylion sticker mods/squares (any!)
  • Sandylion sheets and strips (any!)
  • Mrs. Grossman's mods
  • Vintage/old Hallmark sticker sheets (before 2000)
  • Sticker from CrackerJacks boxes! Opened is fine but please leave cover on it!
  • Stickers with the word/name "Faith"
  • ANY fuzzy stickers (not just my specifics list)
  • Handmade stickers (from my specifics list)
  • Any TV/Fictional/Cartoon Character Stickers (list below)
  • Full sticker sheets, any theme
  • New in package sheets (they're always enjoyed!)

  • For Pen Palling:

    • tiny SmileyFaces/Emojis & hearts: LESS than a centimeter in size!
    • Alphabet sheets with lots of A's & E's: about a centimeter tall, any will be welcome, incomplete sheets as freebies even. I will likely use them!

.
Stickers have been my life since I was a kid! My list is so long because I have them organized & sorted into albums for each specific type. I have been collecting for years! Some I do not collect anymore as my album for them is crowded so see my list above for what to send me!

My Official List: Bears, Bees, Birds, Birthday, Butterflies, Easter, Cats, Christmas, Dinosaurs, Disney, Dogs, Elephants, Farm Animals, Fish, Flowers, Food, Frogs, Giraffes, Halloween, Hearts, Ladybugs, Monkeys, Music, My Little Pony, Penguins, Pokemon & Digimon, Rodents & Woodsie animals, Santa, ScoobyDoo, Sea Life, Smiley Faces, Snowflakes, Snowmen, Stars, Stickeroni guy, Tinkerbell, Turtles, Winnie the Pooh, Zoo animals.

If you are very stumped on what to send me, I'm sure I would like any of those.

Clean up....

I have been flaked on by few and not rated by many. I did have this section "shaming" people but I don't want to come across as "that type of person" so I am moving on.

I'm bad at responding to ratings. So, in advance, thank you for the rating! It is very appreciated!
