This and That

Update 6/16 - there has been some improvement, but things are not going as well as I had hoped. I do check in once in a while, but still feel that I need to wait until I feel significantly better before I come back in full force. Your prayers are appreciated.

I love Christmas postcards!

Christmas/Stocking Stuffer Wish List - 1" wide Washi tape (nothing thinner), new, store bought postcards, cookie cutters (check my Etsy list for suggestions - don't need Christmas related, hearts or cats and No halloween), Avon Imari powder or body spray, anything Shih Tzu related , supplies for making ATC's, plain M & M's, dark chocolate (No Nuts) , small Amazon or Etsy gift, used foreign postage stamps (off paper). ORGANIC SOAPS from any Etsy shop! re-usable shopping bags like from Aldi or Wal Mart. Note pads with a dog or cat on it. Please check my dislikes list! Peppermints or hard lemon candies (NO sugar free as I am allergic).

I collect business cards and am willing to trade up to ten at a time - worldwide!!!

Please Note: If you don't collect business cards, I am willing to trade

 1 postcard for 5 business cards

 1 sticker sheet for 5 business cards

 1 12" sample of Washi tape foe each business 

 Open to other trades as well. Just pm me.

Please check my dislikes before sending cards!

POSTCARD TRADES - I'd love to do a private swap with you for postcards of:

Horses, Seashells, Flowers, Wild Cats, State Flags (US only), Butterflies, Recipes or Food

I will trade up to 4 Internationally, and 8 in the USA. PM me :)

I am 59 and single.

I collect postcards (more about that, later). I run a group called Animal and Nature Postcards.

I have a wonderful kitty. Her name is Precious, and she really is just that! Precious! She is a very active cat, and she is also really snuggly. I love her to pieces!

Years ago I bred and showed Shih Tzus, so I adore anything Shih Tzu or with a Shih Tzu on it!

I am disabled and suffer from chronic moderate to severe pain. It has begun to impact my life more and more lately. I have Fibromyalgia, diabetes with complications, and degenerative joint disease, to name a few problems. I am legally blind in my right eye. During the bad weather I am pretty much housebound.

I have good days, bad days, and awful days. But I do my best to live every day the best I can, with the Lord's help. I don't know where I would be without Jesus.

RATINGS: I always send my swaps out before the send by date. I always rate my swaps. If you are going to be late in sending for any reason, please PM me - that is really important. It can make the difference between a 3 and a 5... things do happen in life that are beyond our control.

If you do not receive a swap from me PLEASE PM me before rating me. Thanks!

Favorite Crafts

I have plenty of rubber stamps and supplies, I have not been stamping for quite a while. I am just not feeling up to it. So please don't send any rubber stamps or supplies.

FAVORITE COLORS: earth tones, browns, blues, greens,tan, paper with inclusions

I enjoy making ATCs and am always looking for small things to use in making them.

I enjoy working with used postage stamps. Also use them for ATCs and rubber stamped cards!

Likes and Dislikes

I do not need any kind of printed/scrapbooking or fancy papers. I have 2 4 drawer cabinets full..........


I collect Cookie Cutters - check my Etsy list for suggestions! I don't want halloween related. I do not need any more Christmas, cats or hearts. I would love fruits vegetables, numbers
