About Me

I am 60 years old and live in a small farming village near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

I am married with two young adult sons. I have two cats and a dog.

I am a creative type who loves creative writing, photography, card making and letter writing.

I also enjoy performing music in a choir and playing flute in a band and with harps.

I like reading romance, chicklit, history and young adult books. I love going to movies at the theatre with my friend and I enjoy watching them on Netflix and Hoopla.

I have rediscovered snail mail again and going to get my mail from the post office is fun again! Woohoo! This swap site sounds like fun!

As for things I like to get in the mail, I am not too fussy and picky. I do love stickers and stationery. Vintage or stuff with cats and birds are a special delight but I'm just so happy to get anything in the mail that isn't junk or a bill! I don't mind postcards just as they are. Thanks so much!

I saw the ABC's of me on other profiles and thought I'd do it, too. Such fun!

Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty bookmark and all the stickers! They are so lovely! I like the colors and retro look. Your handwriting is so nice. I also have missed seeing cursive "I" that way. The way you write it was the way I was first taught in private school but later when I was moved to public school (my parent's divorced) the school made me change the way I wrote it! I was just so happy to see it with the pretty blue metallic pen on such pretty butterfly stationery. Brought many smiles to me today! Thank you so very much! <3
Response: Thanks for the rating, Selene. Glad you liked the bookmark and stickers. Happy Labour/or Day Weekend! Cathy

Comment: Hi Cathy! Thank you for the lovely cloud photo and nc! I loved hearing from you - we live in a rural area as well, so I love this kind of photo! Hard to believe we are in September already - we are back on more restrictions due to the pandemic - sigh! If only folks would do what they are supposed to instead of what they want to! Your photo group sounds fun! So what did you take a photo of for "motif"? Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: So happy you liked the notecard. Thanks for the rating. For motif, I ended up taking a photo of a neighbour's house and the gingerbread motif on the edge of the roof. Hubby suggested it as he likes it and the neighbours want to tear their house down and build a boring bungalow. They have no vision. Sad. Stay safe and healthy! Hugs to you, too! Cathy

Response: Thanks for the rating and glad you liked the bookmarks. Hard to believe we're in September already. Take care and enjoy the fall! Cathy

Response: Hi Lou! Thanks for the rating. Glad you liked the Mr. C pic and note. They are such a delight to see, especially in the monochrome colour of winter. All the best! Cathy

Comment: Love, love, love the postcard! Those are some great books! I usually read in the morning, but lately I have been reading through the day, too. If I read in the evening, I tend to fall asleep. Hahaha
