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 learning new styles and techniques. I love shabby/ vintage/ scrappy styles.


My favourite book is Pride & Prejudice. I also love historical fiction (love Liz Curtis Higgs' Highland series & T.L.Higley). And fantasy (like Chronicles of Narnia and Donita K. Paul)

my favourite movies are Disney's Beauty & the Beast (animated and the live action), the LOTR trilogy and Pride & Prejudice (2005). I also love Anne of Green Gables, Princess Bride, and Sherlock Holmes series by Guy Ritchie.

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. :)

Music is the most important thing to me (besides snail mail!!!) I love listening to CityAlight, Sovereign Grace, Crowder, Sarah Sparks, Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Tommee Profitt, old skool Newsboys 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)

*washi (the traditional kind not decorative tape)

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



*heart shaped things


*black liquorice

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


*vintage papers (even faux handmade vintage)

*glittery/shiney things


*Bible verses and quotes



*crochet ribbon & paper doilies

*Canadiana stuff (eg: Roots, old HBC)

*little pockets/envelopes for journals (like glassine)

*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, orange, and green.

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 love learning about other cultures and families!

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