About Me

If you prefer blank postcards in swaps, join my group "Postcard Stashers" that deals with swaps requiring blank postcards only.


Private request: Looking for more postcards from the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon. It's a hotel for book lovers. * Please * pm me!


REGARDING SWAPS: Even if there's a note or paper inside, please put the swap name somewhere on the envelope, too. And if you are able, instead of a swap note (swap and who it's from), I wouldn't mind all that information on a postcard and sent it in the swap package!

I am an avid reader (by heart), romantic (by nature), 58 (by years alive), French (by design), Canadian (by birth), Ontario (by residency), engaged (by choice), Pentecostal/born-again (by faith) and loved (by God and all who know me).

I am also a freelance editor, writer, and founder of Halcyon Days Magazine at (http://halcyondaysmagazine.blogspot.ca).

Fav Swap Themes

I LOVE RECEIVING ANYTHING THAT INVOLVES:

  • 3D items (the kind that look like they're moving)
  • anything with the following words (or derivatives) on them: "Create," "Discover," "Dream," "Imagine," "Journey," "Memories," "Mystery," "Passion"
  • beach scenes
  • books (medical romance, law/courtroom, rescue)
  • bookmarks
  • Canadian gift cards for Amazon, Coles/Indigo, Michaels, Target, Walmart
  • cardinals (birds)

  • postcards (if the swap calls for naked, then don't send in an envelope). Basically, my preference is blank postcards in an envelope. I like postcards with beautiful or unique postmarks, mailboxes, stamps, and tea/coffee cups.

  • rain/rainbows
  • roses
  • samples of ATCs, decos, and FBs

  • things framed/llined with gold or silver
  • travel-related items

  • vintage ephemera
  • wishing wells (fountains)

I prefer not receiving things with the following themes. But if it's a sender's choice, don't worry about it :)
* angels * balloons * cartoonish things -- see samples here * cats * clowns * dogs * Hello Kitty
* Winnie-the-Pooh

Fav Colors, Scents, & Tastes

My favorite color schemes are teal green/blue and coral or purple tones, hunter green, or ocean colors. My favorite flower and scent is Lily-of-the-Valley. When it comes to cooking or tastes, I'm a fan of anything with cinnamon, chocolate, lemon and orange in it.

Favorite Television

I can't get enough reruns of Bones, Coach, Dexter, ER, Flashpoint, Frasier, Grey's Anatomy, Mr. Selfridge, Rome, Trauma

Other Fav Pastimes

I love cross-stitching, painting with acrylics, sketching, and definitely photography.
