About Me

EDIT: April 2013 - I have contacted everyone that has given me a 1 four years ago. I was previously known as csamara27. I had my first account merged with this one as soon as I realized that was an option. I'm not out to pull the wool over eyes, or hide. Hopefully I can move forward and mail out some lovely things to lovely new people sometime soon. Have a beautiful day, all.

EDIT: June 9/13 - I've sent out a replacement package to @rockstar20h I've been trying to communicate with her on a regular basis, but she has ignored me since I posted the package on May 8 (pic: http://distilleryimage7.ak.instagram.com/cf16a590b82911e28db822000a1f9720_7.jpg). The other 1's have been contacted via PM. I sincerely hope they log in, otherwise they are a lost cause. :(



Feel free to send me a letter. I always reciprocate. Proud member of the League of Extraordinary Penpals.


Hello! My name is Amber, I'm a 27 year old married mother of two! I married my 'high school sweetheart' on October 28, 2011. He is the manager of a small electronics store called The Source. I am a part time Library worker, I volunteer my time with Community Outreach, and I am a full time university student aiming for a degree in Indigenous Education (elementary studies).


We are the proud parents to two lovely young ladies that are 6 years old and 8 years old. They will be in grade 1 and grade 3 this fall.

Favorite Music


Tom Waits, Amanda Palmer, The Dresden Dolls, Disturbed (also Device), Concrete Blonde, BeeGees, K.D. Lang, 4 Non Blondes, David Bowie, Queen, Freddie, Mercury, Kimbra, Walk Off the Earth, Skinny Puppy, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Jeff Buckley, The Horrorpops, Tool (also Puscifer and A Perfect Circle), Ohgr, Otis Redding, The Smiths, Radiohead, Morrissey, Rocket From the Crypt, Elliot Smith, The Doors, The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails, How to Destroy Angels, Front Line Assembly, KMFDM, Assemblage 23, Bob Dylan, Mindless Self Indulgence, Metric, Serena Ryder, Tiesto, Katie Herzig

Favorite Television




I am a die hard Whovian. I love 10. Clara is my favorite companion. Ood and the Face of Boe (and also Jack Harkness) are favorite characters. Daleks and Weeping Angels are favorite villains. Am also partial to smilers, and the creepy chula-plagued children in The Empty Child.

Favorite Crafts


I am a knitter and gardener! Well, I am an intermediate-advanced knitter, and only a very basic-beginner gardener, but hey, at least I haven't killed my plants yet. I practice yoga when no one's looking (read: in the morning before the house wakes up so my smallest child doesn't slap my bum like a drum set and then announce she is taking over my exercise mat for her yoga-related purposes). I am currently training to run my first 5K, but you could never tell because I still look soft and mooshy. Soooon, I will be less soft and mooshy, AND I will be running a 5K for the first time in ever. One sweaty day at a time.



I love anything green and shade of blue and purple. Washi tape! Roving, wool, hanks of lovely yarn. No acrylic yarn, not a fan. Sock DPNs or circs (1-2 mm). Books of all types. love smelly candles. stationery of all types (except memos - I can't write a letter on that). Scrapbook materials. Smashbook ephemera, dreadlock beads (homemade are always fabulous). Beads. Coffee. TEA! Handmade soaps. Guided journals. Smashbooks. Colorful ceramic skulls (our collection is from Mexico, Dominican, Australia, Italy, and Japan), and everything to do with Doctor Who.

Items I won't care as much for:

1-2 sheet "letter sets", expired non-perishables, jewelry (my earlobes are quite a lot larger than your standard earrings, and I rarely wear necklaces of any sort), Diddl, Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Sponge Bob, Twilight, random small scraps of paper, religious material, torn/dirty items, cinnamon candy, and tourist keychains.


I take my ratings seriously, as I am trying to raise them. I plan on being here in the long term. :) If I have not rated you, I have not received anything from you. I will never rate down if there is adequate communication & no lying about send dates.

Waiting on ratings from:

@Narnia for Simple Profile Based swap

@LadyLexophile for *** Long Letter Pal Swap***

Waiting on swaps from:

@Avalonia for I Love Working With Children Swap

Comment: I'm sorry to have to rate you a 1, but I never received anything. You said you would resend, but I don't know if you did. I sent you 3 PMs that you haven't replied to, including one letting you know I would rate you down if I didn't hear from you.
Response: Sorry my dear. In all honesty, I have been ignoring my emails that have not pertained to my university classes, and really only been accessing facebook and instagram in my spare time. I will be sure to get this re-sent once finals are done. It was totally my fault, and I won't beg for a 5. I will take what you feel fits. Have an excellent day. <3 .

KateKintail rated for 101 in 1001 Incentives #2 on Sep 5, 2013
Comment: Thank you for the great, enthusiastic and encouraging package--just what I needed today! I'll have to send you an email to answer a few of your questions :-) But I love the bookmark (I'm going to put it in my 101 Things book right now--that was my thing 100, I think it was). And the yarn is practically too nice to use! But I look forward to lots of practice with it. Thank you so much! I can't wait to accomplish my next big things so I can open the last package- so neat that you wrapped them all!

Thanks for your message. No thanks I don't need the letter from miniquilt, I had the same letter with a name what is not my name so I don't like unpersonal letters, But thanks for letting me know


Toupti on Sep 6, 2013:

What a Nice package I just received. It was my birthday last week end and it felt like I was still opening presents to realize it was a nice RAK from you. You didn't have to do that, but it's surely appreciated, really. Thank you so much for everything. I can't wait to try the ruffle yarn. I've always wanted to, but was intimidated. Now I have no excuses anymore, just got to pick up my needles and try !!! I might even do it today as I was looking for a new project to start (I finished one yesterday). The pens are also really cool.

Tomorrow is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! I'm sending you this greeting a day early so you can get the necessary items to celebrate tomorrow. :)

DosLittleMonkeys on Jul 20, 2013:

Kudos to you for really trying to turn your swapping around! Most people come back and talk the talk, but it's all just that. @rockstar20h should give you a break, afterall she also had another profile.

ladytrancevision on Jul 19, 2013:

Hey, how are you? What's going on in your world? I hope you're great! And please drop me a line letting me know that all's well, mkay? Peace. :)

Amigirl on Jul 16, 2013:

Thanks so much for the RAK book by Nikki Trent! I love her book and I'll use it all the time! Please let me know if I can make you one of the pets out of it as a thank-you, because I'd love to do that for you, if you want one!
