About Me

'ello, my name is Kay and I am currently living in Calgary. I've returned to Swap-bot in April 2014 after a 2 year hiatus due to moving, financial issues and a deep bout of depression. Depression is a real illness.

I work in the fire protection field as a service coordinator. My field of expertise is industrial operations, such as the mining or forestry industry. And, truth be told, I probably know more about fire extinguishers than I probably should.

My furbaby, Vahe, passed away December 21 2015.

I like to laugh. I'm very silly. Hopefully I'm seen as an easygoing kind of person.

Drawing and baking are two of my favourite past times.
galpal Private trades are always welcome, just shoot me a message. :)

SPOILER ALERT: I post my creations to my Flickr account. If you want to be surprised, don't click the link. Or if you're curious, click the link. But don't say I didn't warn ya. ;)

Do you have problems with communication? You do not read my messages. I will wait until you rate for the swap. The only way to know if you did received the swap is to contact you. Swapping is not fun if you don't read the messages and if you don't communicate.

Please rate for the: MA: Sender's Choice March 2016 International swap.

Lucine on May 4, 2016:

Hello, I've sent you two messages (April 20 and May 3) which you haven't read. It is about the MA: Sender's Choice March 2016 International swap. Rate if you have received the swap? If not received let me know and I will resend.

btbeth on May 1, 2016:

Attempt to contact Inchie swap hostess - Please respond to my messages. You have not read or answered the 2 Pms i sent nor have you responded to the comment on the swap page. All i ask is an answer to my question - did you receive my swap sent on 4/4?? The attempts were made so I had time to resend before the last day if needed, but your lack of response has made this impossible.

Kay, I received your wonderful twinchies from the Elemental Twinchies Round 4 swap today! Thank you so much! Unfortunately, I can't rate you for the swap because originally that flaker person was supposed to send to me - so please consider this an imaginary 5 with a <3! I love the twinchies.

TeaNi on Sep 5, 2015:

for granting a wish for me with the address labels! I really needed them- I had run all out! :)
