About Me

Hello from the We(s)t Coast of Canada! I live here with my family 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

I like to journal and I have done scrapbooking and have tried hand lettering, but need a lot more practice!

I am loving the challenge of working with mixed media and ephemera and learning new things in the paper crafting and pen pal community.


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, 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.

I like washi, buttons (with pins-- not the kind you sew with!), tea, magnets, stationary, pens, chocolate, heart shaped things, lettering, black licorice, cats (don't hate me but I'm not a dog person at all, even though they're cute, lol) , butterflies, glitter, stickers, encouraging quotes and Bible verses, vellum, flowers, crochet ribbon, little pockets/envelopes for journals, gnomes, faeries and cottagecore, rainbows, Classic Winnie the Pooh and memes. My favourite colour is yellow followed by grey and orange.

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: (Like Shirley Temple would say...) OOOOoooooo I just LOVED the sunflowers and purple butterflies. So fun to see where you are on a map too. I visited Bellingham WA for work twice - not too far. So lovely. Someday... someday... I'll get to BC. Can't wait. Happy swapping!

Comment: Lori-Anne, first I really appreciate the vellum as extras. I have never had printed vellum before and will definitively use it soon. Second you have a great eye for mixing colours and patterns on the cards. Thirdly I am grateful that you sent me two cards. It is nice to see how you played with the layout. Take care, D.
Response: Thanks! Those are sweet things for you to say; I appreciate it! <3 (having matching paper helps with mixing patterns!!) I love vellum and am trying to challenge myself to use it instead of hoard it, lol! <3

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful swap, I don’t have any of the paper you sent which says a lot because I have a stack 18” high. I just can’t resist all those pretty 6x6 paper pads. I especially liked the sunflower washi.😊❤️
Response: too funny!! I also have a huge stash and haven't come across doubles from someone else! I hope that means that you can find uses for the new pieces to add to your growing stack! :)
