About Me

Welcome to my profile - I am Tracy, a social worker, who just left office life in exchange for foster parenting on a small farm just 10 minutes drive from the city center. Love it!! I have 4 goats, a lamb, a donkey, 2 dogs and chickens. We have wild life cruising through the property and co-exist fairly well. I have a project list a mile long and have 2 homeless youth helping out with some of the labour. If the snow doesn’t fly too soon this year, I hope to demolish my side deck which sits over a deep crevice and rebuild the area in a more whimsical way, maybe lay some masonry in the clay. (Oh gee, this is so outdated, promise to update soon😝).

Things that energize me:
visual arts!! , friends, architecture, ATC’s, antiques, boring-ass meetings, drawings, clean bedsheets, printmaking, outdoors, quirky things, nature, travel (wide and far), spice! cooking, tea, snacks, food security, black humour, beer coasters from your area, community development, birds, mammals, social innovation, anything “Griffin,” history, literary fiction, linguistics, mental health, Fabio, hair metal bands, museums. I don’t get offended so feel free to send edgy stuff or nudes.

I should build on TRAVEL: I have become addicted to getting away (not sure what that says about my psyche) since my first independent travel to Guatemala when I was 25. In those days, travel was much different without internet, smart phones or Trip Advisor. Since then, I have accumulated a lot of little star stickers that I adhere to my globe when I hit a new destination. Favorites have included Greenland, Japan, Varanasi, Iceland, Venezuela, Turkey and the Channel Islands.

Wish List: Postcards - I like whacky ones, downtown innovation, vintage/antique, black and white, artsy, poetry, free cards, historic, famous people, galleries, etc Stereographs - collect these💗 ATCs Knorr and other instant soup packets Tea Socks Penpal letters - always interested in your hobby stuff, personality flaws, travels. Vintage or antique anything Old portraits. Seeds Real feathers found in nature Teeth, skulls Bookmarks Stationery Earrings - gawdy! Return address labels. Postage stamps - new or used Coins Low denomination paper money Ephemera

I don't care for cutesy/girlie things, child reward stickers or “manufactured-type” scrapbooking stuff. I am not religious but don’t mind religious symbols.

The best things I have ever received through swap-bot swaps are: a petrified clam, a feather from a great horned owl, ATC’s, foreign coins, an Egyptian bookmark, quills, a hand-made anti-racism booklet with illustrations. Thank-you!!!!

Happy swapping.

Comment: What a wonderful package to receive. All the stamps on the envelope are tremendous but so too everything else in the package. You've completely spoiled me sending things I would never be able to find in South Africa! And all the extra postcards. Oh my, I wish I could rate you 5 big stars. Thank you so very much!
Response: Welcome - I am surprised it got there so fast.

Comment: I'm sorry for the late rating - I've had some challenges at home lately, leading to an unopened pile of mail :( First of all, there are so many things I love about this - before I even open the five items! That postcard is hilarious - the best part is that the postmark is from the British diabetic association! On a postcard with a fat man and a message about sausages! Also, where does one find butt washi?!? I need that in my life as well! Your photos are amazing, and for some reason, I particularly love the half an alligator, lol! Thank you so much!
Response: Glad you got a chuckle too. Diabetic Association 🤣

I had to leave the Cocoa swap, because I didn't have two different kinds, but I LOVE cocoa. Would you like to do a private swap?

Thank you so much for the great surprise! No one has ever sent me something in return for a swap. You really made my week with your kind gesture. I will pay it forward.
