My BLOG GIVEAWAYS!

I thought you all might like this one!

BASKET OF CRAFTING GOODIES GIVEAWAY


NEW UPDATE: Nov. 27 I have pm'd the swapper who gave me the recent 1 and didn't say why. Apparently, she was too busy to let me know she hadn't received it. But she wasn't too busy to pm me back! Also she doesn't want a resend when I offered cause it wasn't important to her! Well. it's important to me! I'm the one sitting on the side with the 1! Totally NOT in the spirit of Swap-Bot!

UPDATE:Nov 27. Just for the record the 1 I just received is very unfair. I never received word from her that she didn't receive the swap and then she gives me a 1. I have been trying so hard to clear up the other 1 rating after sending 4 packages and NOW THIS! TOTALLY UNFAIR!

UPDATE: Nov. 18. Another swapper PMed me to let me know that my Australian swapper has not been online since Sept. I checked and this is true. Also after she herself received a 1, she stated she would never be on Swap-Bot again. I'm now wondering how many of the 4 packages I've sent have been received! I've emailed Rachel to see if she can rectify this 1 of mine!

UPDATE:Oct. 27. I'm sending the 4th package for the swap to Australia tomorrow! PLEASE wish it luck!

UPDATE:Oct.13. Still haven't received word that Australia package arrived. I'm going to study Australian Postal Restrictions in detail and try again! Some of you already know that I was in the hospital AGAIN last week for another heart procedure! This is getting old real fast!

UPDATE: I just want everyone to know that the 1 I have in my ratings I am trying very hard to rectify! This is a swap going to Australia and I sent a 3rd package out last week! The 2nd resend! Thanks for reading my profile!

UPDATED!! Wednesday Sept. 15th. I am home from the hospital now. I had 2 heart catherizations in the last 6 days and had 3 stents placed in my heart. I am fine. Thank you to everyone that showed concern!

UPDATED SepT.14TH I AM CATHYS SISTER IN LAW JUST WONTED TO LET EVERY ONE KNOW SHE IS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR A FEW DAYS WILL KEEP YOU ALL INFORMED

UPDATE!!! Sept. 4! Remaining swaps and resends and resends of resends were sent out TODAY! I am all caught up! If you do not receive your swap this week or so, PLEASE contact me before you rate!

UPDATE!!!! Aug. 24! A friend just gave me $60 to help with shipping so I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! Thanks for your patience and understanding. Please continue to hang in there with me!

IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED YOUR SWAP FROM ME, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I AM DESPERATELY TRYING TO TRACK DOWN A FRIEND MIA AND MY PACKAGES AND DOING RESENDS! PLEASE BE UNDERSTANDING! I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN! THANK YOU!

UPDATE:As of Aug. 10... All my swaps and resends are packed and ready to go. Please be patient with me. When the so-called friend disappeared. the $200 dollars I gave her for shipping also disappeared. I have been doing everything short of stealing to come up with the money for the rest of the packages! Being on a fixed income, as some of you know, is horrible. But this situation is pure hell! UPDATE: As of Aug. 16: PLEASE GIVE ME A CHANCE!! I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN! I have sent out many resends! If you still have not received your swap, please CONTACT ME!!! ***********************************************************

Info on Gracie and Me

Things you need to know!

I am not a flaker... so I would appreciate it if you do not treat me like one... With that said IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU RATE. Chances are I can track it down for you. If not, I will resend....

MY INFO

My beloved husband, Ron, is on the Other Side for 3 1/2 years now and I miss him dearly. I'm 60 years old and have a 7 yr old daughter that I adopted when she was a newborn! I am so very lucky because my husband does communicate with me from the Other Side. I have many EVPs with his voice and laughter. I'm blessed. I am also diabetic but my daughter loves sweets, especially skittles.

GRACIE'S INFO

Besides Skittles, Gracie loves anything chocolate, anything that is sweet! She is totally unlike her mama! I gain weight just looking at a piece of candy, but she remains slender! And I really think she will stay that way! She has a pink bedroom decorated with fairies. She loves to write and draw. And guess what? She loves these swaps! She even helps me with some of them! She will be going to Sports Spirit Day Camp for a week this summer; a week at the Fish Hatchery; and a week at the Village Theatre working on scenes from "Annie"! She love cartoons especially SpongeBob and ScoobyDo She adores Hannah Montana, Any music that has a fast beat to it so she can dance!

Gracie is already trying to wear my makeup! Sometimes I catch her,sometimes I don't. I really don't mind the hypoallergenic kind made for kids!

Gracie simply adores Celtic Thunder! She doesn't have any of their CD's yet, but she'd love one!

My Other Hobbies

I LOVE TO BAKE!

Cupcakes are my favorite thing in the world to create! So, I adore cookbooks about cupcakes!

I also love to bake homemade bread! Someday I'd love to own a bread machine, cause it's getting harder and harder for me to stand and knead!

I also love to accumulate the old regional cookbooks that civic groups and churches publish!

Gracie and I both like to feed the birds and squirrels from our balcony by the river! The Stellar jays just love those peanuts. I rather miss the Blue Jays in Ohio! The blue is a bright sky-blue color! And oh, do I miss the Cardinals! Washington just doesn't have any! We also feed the Anna hummingbirds and every now amd then, a goldfinch will visit!

Music & My Beloved

I adore country music, but I also like classical, Celtic Thunder, Elvis. Really, just about everything except hard rock and bluegrass. Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson's, "Amazing Grace", is one of my favorite songs. My husband, Ron, used to do backup for Willie and Hank Williams.

Ron used to train horses and I'm sure that's what he is doing right now! He was such an animal lover. I saw him cry once when a tiny rabbit died in his hands!

My beloved not only rescued animals but he resued people, too. I remember once when we raised rabbits. We were going to have some alone time in the hills, just he and I. But suddenly, as we passed a little farm where we had purchased bunnies before, he stopped the car and told me that I needed to go in. Upon entering I discovered one of the owners dressed in white and crying, holding a bottle of pills. Her husband had left her and she was about to end her own life! She is alive today because of my husband!

From The Swan Princess:

"Far Longer Than Forever”

Odette: If I could break this spell
I'd run to him today
and somehow I know he's on his way to me
Derek, you and I were meant to be.

Far longer than forever
I'll hold you in my heart
It's almost like you're here with me
Although we're far apart

Derek:
Far longer than forever
As constant as a star
I close my eyes
and I am where you are

Odette:
Sure as the dawn brings the sunrise
We've an unshakeable bond

Derek:
Destined to last for a lifetime
and beyond

Far longer than forever (Far longer than forever)
I swear that I'll be true (I swear that I'll be true)
I've made an everlasting vow
To find a way to you

Both:
Far longer than forever
Like no love ever known
and with your love
I'll never be alone

Odette:
Far longer than forever

Derek:
Much stronger than forever

Odette:
and with your love
I'll never be alone

Books & Love

My favorite books? I like Romantic fiction, spiritual, gardening. My favorite nonfiction author is Sylvia Browne. In fact, you could save that she saved my life. I was really a lost soul until I started reading Sylvia's books!

If you never read another book in your life, please read thisSylvia's "Journal of The Soul" , 3-book series! It will change your life!

Living Life Vicariously-Movies

My favorite movies are the original South Pacific and Phantom of the Opera. I've seen them both many times and I cry and sob EVERY time! I just found out that THERE IS GOING TO BE A SEQUEL TO Phantom of the Opera! Wow! Be still my heart!

Favorite Crafts & Collections

I love decorating my home in shabby chic, Country Victorian. My favorite colors at the moment are shades of green and pink! But I never met a color that I didn't like!

I adore thrift stores, flea markets. My 7 yr old daughter loves to find things at dumpsters! She's lugged many wooden chairs back to our apartment! She knows I love them! When I had my house before our move to Washington state, I had numerous old chairs in my garden holding flowering plants! I love to find free treasures and incorporate them into my home! My home is my sanctuary! I love to crochet afghans and only afghans! I never could get into anything else! and I really don't like the thin baby crochet yarn.

I LOVE JUNK!

Comment: after much thought, i am rating this swap as a 3. This was supposed to be a jar full of my favorite animals, what i got was a jar full of pink items. this was not a pink jar swap. I did recieve a set of flamingo salt and pepper shakers, however one was broken. alot of the items i recieved were either opened (lotions, nail polish) or just had nothing to do with anything related to this swap... show me how roses and smelly sachets and pink carmel apple lotion has anything to do with "my favorite animal swap" and I will rerate. this swap left me very dissappointed to say the least. i spent hours trying to find badgers for my partner, and when unsuccessful, i found other animals on her list to fill the rest of the jar. a little effort goes a long long way.

Comment: Like my mom always said, "if it looks like a flaker, walks like a flaker and talks like a flaker....then it's probably a FLAKER!" My gut was telling me from the very start that you were and I should have gone with my instincts. These were a christmas swap. If they dont arrive by December 25th, I will not change my rating even if they are the best tassels with extras!

I see that you are still swapping and still on here. since you say that you are trying to make up all of the swaps that you flaked on, maybe you could send me the two tassel ornaments from last year? let me know. You hosted that swap, remember?

germangirl65 on Feb 18, 2011:

I truly hope you and your daughter are alright and that nothing terrible has happened...it doesn't seem like you're the type to just "flake" especially with all the swaps you've been in. My thoughts are with you and I hope all is well.

tututerrificbyjulie on Jan 27, 2011:

Hi...I had your name for the Christmas Candy from around the World swap....I'm just wanting to make sure that you received it...please do leave me a rating, okay?

Thanks!

Hey flaker

Sunflower4Mowse on Dec 31, 2010:

Hey there, I went to a great deal of trouble and expense to make you an art doll for YOUR swap ! It was sent insured and with delivery confirmation so I know you received it. It would be nice if you could at least bother to give me a decent rating. I am so losing faith in this site considering the number of resends I have had to do, and the fact that people get very nice items and don't rate. Hoping you will do what is right. Mowse
