About Me

Hello! I am four gnomes in a trenchcoat A.k.a. Abi! I live in Canada and work as a barista. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, sculpting, and writing.

some of the things I have made can be found on my Etsy FromtHeart You can also find me on Instagram where I occasionally post some things I have made. my handle is also @fourgnomesinatrenchcoat on Instagram

A NOTE! Both my mom and I are on this site and since we live at the same home, we have the same address. I do not have a second profile it is just my mom ( @fierycanuck ). While we do enjoy similar swaps we are not the same person!

Favorite Books

Recently my co-worker has gotten me into romance so if you have any suggestions send them my way!

Favorite Crafts

I tend to flip through a bunch of different crafts but I most often...

paper collage

Some of the jewelry things I have been making can be found on Etsy at Fromtheart.

-holiday themed items

If you are sending to me in a postcard swap, I prefer blank postcards. not stamped and not written on unless the swap calls for something different. the only postcards I will not use/enjoy are city/province/attraction postcards. I have no use for them and it feels a little weird to me to send someone a touristy postcard for a place I have never or will never go to.

Things I am always looking for

I'm sure I am not the only person who has a hard time finding certain crafty items. Here are a few that I have a hard time finding!

Anything gnome-themed! as you can probably tell by my username, I love gnomes!!

letter sets/letter paper

botanical Washi Tape

vintage Washi Tape


clear stickers

Ephemera (vintage, fairytale, botanical,)

non-puffy stickers

seed paper

paper confetti

Anything fairytale-themed

If you have any of these things and are looking to get rid of them I will gladly take them off your hands!

Comment: Abi - I really appreciate for your thoughtfulness in the gifts your picked for me. The watercolours, stamps, washi and gel pens will be put to use right away in creating my Christmas cards. The asian themed writing paper is spectacular. I have never seen anything like it before. And I actually like your 'rustic wrapping'. Thank you very much, D
