About Me

After a very long Hiatus whilst dealing with what life has thrown at me, I am happy to be back to swapping. Not back in full force mind you, but back none the less. :)

badge

what I pledged

Hi there everyone! Welcome to my Profile! A few things about me...

I am a Stampin Up! Canada Demonstrator! If you have any interest in purchasing any of the current products or have any crafty questions, feel free to have a look at my online shop link or to shoot me a PM!

  • I am Happily Married to the Best Man in the world!

  • In the evenings, you will usually find me enjoying a cup of tea, my most recent knitting project (OR cross stitching project!) and a Disney Movie.

  • I have a Professional Cooking Degree, and I enjoy cooking at home for my hubby and others greatly. Not cooking for a living anymore has helped me re-invent my passion for food :) Recently I have been entering baking into the local Country Fair and got several prize ribbons!

  • My favourite sweet treats are Purdy's English Toffee and the purdy's milk chocolate bar with crisps ^^

  • I believe in a happy and healthy lifestyle! So I do my best to stay active! My husband and I enjoy fresh ingredients in my cooking.

  • I am a Nerd who Plays Pokemon Go!

  • I LOVE animals! From the fuzzy kinds to the scaly kinds! (Just as long as they have no more than 4 legs I am FINE lol)

  • Any Magic:the Gathering players out there?? I have played and collected Magic Cards since I was 12! I am currently playing a lot on Magic Arena. If you play standard, shoot me a PM and maybe we can play some time.

  • Shopping for gifts for other people is one of my favourite things to do!

One More Thing I would like to ADD....

If there is a time where you do not receive a Swap or Tag from me, please be respectful and give me (and other swappers) the benefit of the doubt. This means that before rating a 3 or a 1 attempt to contact your partner FIRST, and not give your rating first "to let them know". Most swappers will do their best to rectify what is in their control. The Postal system is not always in the best working order, ESPECIALLY during the holiday season and now Covid19. So please DO keep this in mind. Treat and Message others the way you want and expect to be treated and messaged. :)

My Crafty Side!

At the moment I am sticking with Swaps for Tea, Handmade Cards, Knitting/Crochet Supplies, Holiday Cards, Flat Envies etc... Small Swaps Only

There are a few specific crafts that I stick to, but I am always willing and interested to try different things!

- Handmade Cards

-Paper Crafts

-Stamping

-Knitting & Crochet!

I really like to make bookmarks, cards/postcards, fridge magnets, small blankets etc...anything to keep my hands busy :)

I JUST picked up a new Cricut Explore Air 2!! So I am getting into playing around with it and making all the things!!

I also have the wish to learn how to quilt! I want to become a better sewer, and I thought that this might be a way to start! (UPDATE: I have begun my first quilting project as of today 8/9/2014! So excited! Its a Christmas themed table runner, and its going to be amazing! lol)(Update: Still working on that table runner...lol)

My husband is a painter. Not for a living. Just as a hobby. He does acrylic on canvas. He is quite good at it! You wouldn't think that a construction worker had the soft side to paint. He is very into Magic:the Gathering same as me, and he also plays alot of PS4, specifically Monster Hunter Online.

I have also recently learned how to Knit! My maid of honor got me into it...what have you done?? lol...not only do I have enough scrapbooking stuff to to choke a horse, I now have more than enough yarn to knit my self into retirement lol)

SOOOO...MUCH....YAAAAAARN lol I also volunteer at a local Non-Profit yarn shop who is partnered with the Salvation Army. https://onceuponasheep.ca/

Hobbies/Likes/Dislikes

I love music, can't go a day with out listening to something or I would literally die. I listen to just about anything, but at the moment I am very into Pitt-Bull. I love Rihanna too! But my favourite of all time would have to be Billy Joel, Bryan Adams, the Backstreet Boys and Savage Garden.

As for books, I am an avid Audiobook listener. I have minor dyslexia and so reading for longer periods of time is difficult. Plus this way I can do 2 things at the same time lol. My favourite genre is Cozy Mysteries. I use the library app as well as Audible.

TV shows at the moment are Criminal Minds, DR. WHO, NCIS, NCIS:LA, NCIS:New Orleans, The Ghost Whisperer, 911... but most of all 100% Fav show of all time is CHARMED ^^ (The Original...not the really bad reboot)

I love to cook. Hubby is spoiled rotten, as he gets homemade baking to take to work with him...lol.

I LOVE DISNEY ANYTHING! Collectables, clothing, stationary, figurines, POP! Figures...seriously anything!

I have the same love and passion for Harry Potter that I do for Disney! ANYTHING!

Flaked :(

I was really sad that I had to make one of these lists....but alas...

The two swaps that I was Flaked on Originally have been rectified. Each swapper was rated a 3.

@cassiecards - has been found to be a flaker, and has disappointed two girls in the Secret Sister Swap Games that I run. If she is a member of your group, ban her.

@nlgrudis - User is suspended, and has not been online for more than a month. I was flaked on for a WTA prize dating back to April.

@dukono - User is suspened also, and flaked me for the same April WTA game.

@Lozzabee - Flaked on sending out a prize for a "Lucky Post" game that I won in February. Suspended.

NON-Raters : /

Ok, so sadly I have been going through all of my "SENT" swaps, and alot of them I have not Archived yet because I have not received a rating. This being said...I decided to make a list...

@Nathalie for Christmas Card - International (Contacted many times, still nothing) UPDATE: I was finally contacted 2 YEARS later, with a 1 rating. No message, just a rating and comment "letting me know" that she had not received her Xmas Card. This rating has since been removed after I sent multiple messages, and is now being resolved. :)

@bananasock for December Tea Pot Swap (Partially suspended)

@Tajsa for Tea+Notecard swap

@rootbear for Mail Art for Beginners 2 (Has not been online since Oct.6/2011, and has no ratings.)

@VintageDreams for Charmed/Witchy Mail Art (Partially suspended)

@ladyofunicorns for Disney Pinterest Board Swap - Has been online every day since I sent the swap message, yet has not opened ANY of the messages I have sent. I have left notes on her profile as well as sending her an EMAIL just in case she checks that! How hard is it to open a message and give a rating for an ELECTRONIC swap? I just don't unserstand the non-rating or flaking for type 1 swaps.

More to be added I'm sure...

~TAGS~ :D

I feel I need a spot to keep track of my tags so far, and to make sure that people know that I have not forgotten about them!! ^^

Tags OWED: -Technically I still have things owed to me, but I believe that it has been more than 4 months, not to stress over it, everyone is human.

Tags OWING: -As far as I know, I have sent everything that I owe out.
