About Me

hi all I love dogs and currently have 5 dogs instead of the crazy cat lady Im the crazy dog lady LOL . I rescued all of them . I love stickers , pen paling , card making , bookmarks ( I also make bookmarks ) .I love gardening especially roses and other flowers . vegetable gardening is too hard and too many bugs LOL . I'm over the age of 40 and under 90 LOL. want to live a happy life and so far i have managed to do that . I have a tea pot collection from over the years and if I spot one in a thrift store I am going to check it out .I enjoy a good cup or pot of tea . I love bowler type hats especially wool ones in the winter . I also wear the straw type in the summer . You will find me mostly in paper swaps . I think paper is fantastic and a great way to communicate . Nothing like the smell and feel of real paper. Went to catholic school and raised in the catholic church . Im religious and spiritual so you can talk to me about God anytime . God is good all the time . I dont push my religion on other people or other faiths . I am a very kind person and I hope that reflects well in the way I handle things . One day I hope to Eat , Pray , Love my way through Tuscany .I sing and also play violin in a country band and we have alot of fun or did until this corona virus hit .i also have a planner that has the small paper with holes that you can add to the planner . I love the planner as i can write appointments in it and plan my day and week .

But above all the bible is my favorite book of all time . . I also like the cartoon calvin and hobbes because im the mother of three boys all grown now but one imparticular reminds me of calvin .

baking bread found a fantastic way to do this without kneading just ask if you would like

miniature figurines (glass or plastic is fine ).





card making

stickers ( mainly cute animal ones , sayings are great too .

if you have religious or spiritual ones they are most welcome

collecting tea pots

I also like post cards , funny ones, but no gore or satanic , no nudity or insect or snakes ones either .

Cotton hankies happen to be a favorite I carry womens and the big cotton mens hankies also they are rather large so more so handy .

Prayer cards are also welcome . They are so beautiful .

DISLIKES: No atcs nothing personal i just dont like them . nothing that smells of cigarette smoke they will go into the trash immediately . thanks for understanding .


Let me say I give hearts generously because I think anyone who takes time out of their day to send me something deserves a heart . Just because I dont like it is not a reason not to give a heart . If you contact me saying you will be late with a swap then I will understand HOWEVER I DONT CHASE SWAPS OR RATINGS .IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE YOUR SWAP GOT TO ME NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND . Things happen but communication should happen as well . thanks. Also should your swap come here ripped up then i wont rate you at all because that is neither your fault or mine . I hope you understand that .

Also please message me for my zip code if you are sending a swap to me.

If you dont see a rating from me it is because i never got the swap from you and i do rate as soon as i get them .

I also want to put up here if you don't rate that is just rude .

Any swap I host I will make note of the swappers who don't rate and you wont be welcome in any of my swaps .


And futhermore you relay attitude towards me you will be banned also from any future swaps I host . Since some of you think it is okay to be nasty to a swap host or hostess .

Favorite Teas.

tea both loose and bags Faves of tea are mint and blackberry . .If you are able to find me blackberry tea I would be over the moon . thanks . NO Herbal teas please they give me a headache aka a major migraine . thanks .

Thank you for the random flat envie tag! I particularly liked the lemon and lime ephemera - it reminds me of warmer weather!
