Please Note:

If for any unfortunate reason, you have not received my parcel, message me so I can resend it and fix the problem before you rate me a one or a three. I take my ratings very seriously and get anxious even at the prospect of a three, so please message me and I will do everything in my power to make sure you are happy and I get a 5. Thank you kindly!

I click 'item sent' the date I put it in the mailbox, even if it's a holiday or Sunday and it will be picked up the next day, so if the date on the envelope doesn't match the sent day, this is why.

Canada Post isn't exactly known for their consistent deliveries and in fact, some things I've mailed have been lost or taken months to send within Canada. So please don't be afraid to message me, and I will get back to you immediately. If you are unhappy with anything I've sent you, please message me. Above all else, message me before rating!


About Me...

I'm Annie. I'm terrible at writing about me!

I'm 30 years old and I currently work from home (it’s not as great as it sounds. Because it’s kind of isolating, I have pen pals to keep me connected). I live in Alberta, Canada. I was born and raised here. I dream of living in Manchester, UK. I travelled there once and fell in love with the city.

I have three cats and one dog. I know people say you shouldn't have favourites. Don't tell my cats but my dog is...well, she's my furbaby. I dream of owning a ball python...maybe one day.

If you're into astrology, let me know! I'm a Gemini. I'm an introvert that loves conversation, from the mundane, eccentric, and deep. That also is reflected when I write letters to penpals or in swaps. I like to ramble a lot too and I love reading other people's rambles too.



My interests, etc.

My interests are eclectic and for the most part, I'm interested in everything.

-Journaling

-Politics (I studied political science in university)

-Anything related to Mental Health & LGBTQ+

-Hoarding sheet masks

-Sewing and sewing patterns

-Reading (love anything, especially horror or poetry books)

-Writing

-Crafting (everything! Currently, I'm journaling, sewing, making my own stationery if I have the time, painting (I’m terrible at it but it’s fun and relaxing)).

-Obsessing over Skincare & Makeup

-Watching anything spooky. I love the thrills of being scared.

-Watching anything related to true crime

-Documentaries & Films

-Collecting weird and crazy socks. It's become a passion of mine to hunt them down and buy them (and of course, wear them).

-Pen palling! I love hearing about people, their interests, their struggles, their triumphs, their daily lives.


Things I love...

I seriously love everything and am happy with what you decide to send me :) I’m so thankful to receive anything.

-Stickers

-Washi

-Cute Stationery

-Cute Stickie Notes

-Instant Coffee (I dream to try coffee from every country)

-Interesting flavoured tea (I'm not really picky about the flavours since I like almost everything)

-The colour green


Dislikes...

I try to keep an open mind for anything you send me.

-Realistic pictures of spiders (or anything related to spiders. I'm terrified of them).

-Anything with a "smokey" smell

-Bugs


Favourite Books and Music...

I have an eclectic taste in books and I'm always interested in broadening my horizons. I read poetry (LOVE it), horror, kookie, surreal, romance, non-fiction, legal dramas, fantasy, historical. I especially love hearing about people's favourites or if they recommend anything to me.


I don't really listen to different types of music. I have a habit of sticking to what I like so I love when people send me playlists or songs stuck in their head. Anything to broaden my horizons.

Music I love: Paramore, The 1975, Allie X, Natalia Kills, Fall out Boy, Tracy Chapman, Bleachers,Gossip...there's more but I don't want to bore you. I love 80's music too.

Private Swaps...

I'm always looking to do more private swaps, and I'll do everything in my power to send whatever you'd like, so if you're interested, please let me know!


I absolutely love handwritten letters, long and rambling...I just love letters! And I'm always looking for more pen pals, so if you are too, just send me a message! If we've swapped and you'd like to continue to exchange letters, I'd be so happy to!


Hearts and Ratings...

I will always rate. I was brought up to be grateful and will almost always rate 5 and give a heart (unless you flake). I'm so appreciative that people take the time to send me things and I'm always happy to receive whatever you'll send me.

Comment: Hi Annie, I've just received your lovely letter. I really love everything : the magnet, wonderful postcard and delicious tea ! A great thank you ! I've sent mine nearly 3 weeks ago so if you didn't already receive it, it makes me worried a little... usually it doesn't take so much time between France and Canada. Tell me if you want me to resend.
Response: So glad you liked everything! And thank you so so much for agreeing to do a private swap with me!

The other day I got the goodies you sent for me! Thank you so much. I especially love the washi samples. I think I'm starting to horde samples. o.O Anyway, again, thank you so much!!

MrsCrissyHall on Oct 6, 2014:

Awww! I'm so happy that you think so. Since I feel rushed 99.9% of the time (2 toddlers will do that to you!) I never feel like I put enough work into my swaps. Or anything for that matter! I hope we get the chance to swap again in the future! =)

MrsCrissyHall on Sep 30, 2014:

I'm trying so hard not to happy dance or squeal right now. I am so happy that you liked my ATC!! And that you finally got it!!

snailmailer1 on Sep 18, 2014:

MrsCrissyHall on Sep 5, 2014:

I do hope you get it soon! I got the one that had to be angeled to me yesterday. I am so very grateful for it, it's great! And I really hope you like yours.

MrsCrissyHall on Aug 27, 2014:

Hey! Sorry that it has taken me a bit to get back to you. Thank you so much for explaining and I'm sorry if I seem impatient. I am a little bit, but not for the rating. Lol. I really want to know what you think about it. I put a lot of time into it and kinda loved it so much that I almost didn't send it out. Haha!! I don't think I included a note explaining it, but the materials I used was chosen to reprsent the intelligence women possess.

ema819 on Aug 15, 2014:
