About Me

Hi all I'm Cat .

I love dogs and currently have 4 dogs instead of the crazy cat lady Im the crazy dog lady LOL . They are all rescues .

I am now a full time musician . I have started taking gigs during the week . Right now Im playing in nursing homes , weddings , libraries ,special events such as campaigns , anniversary parties .etc .

I love stickers , pen paling , card making , bookmarks ( I also make bookmarks ) that being said I dont like or want magnetic bookmarks . .I love gardening especially roses and other flowers . vegetable gardening is just cucumbers and that is all I grow . The taste is so much better than the grocery store ones . . 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 . I also love colorful scarfs to wear with turtlenecks in the winter ., I also use colorful scarfs to tie my hair up .

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. I went to catholic school but no longer feel connected to the catholic church and have since attended pentecostal church most of my adult life and feel so at home there and I love it ..

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 also hope to go to Israel at some point as well .

..I sing and also play violin in a country band and we have alot of fun .

Im not a fan of profanity , or inapropriate behavior from anyone .

I usually send my swaps out soon after partners are assigned .

I donate stuffed animals and dolls etc that i purchase at the thrift stores to the coroners office as there is a great need in that area . You see through a friend I found out that the coroners office goes into homes when someone has died and they give these stuffed animals and dolls to the kids there in the home to help with the fear and being scared . So please ask around and find out if there is a need in your local area for them .

Ratings

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 .

I WILL NOT BE BULLIED BY ANYONE .YES IT HAS HAPPENED . SOME HOSTESS THINK THEY CAN BULLY PEOPLE INTO REMOVING RATINGS . I DID IT ONCE IM NOT DOING IT AGAIN . IF YOU GET RATED DOWN YOU DESERVE IT . IM NICE TO A POINT . THEN IM NOT SO NICE .

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 .

Borrowed from B.Sykes : Thank you so much : I am in Swap-Bot to have fun as I believe the majority of all you wonderful nice people are! So please don't write to me with attitude if I missed something or forgot something or overlooked something. I am very happy to make something up to you if I messed up but could you please be nice about it? Also if you didn't receive my swap could you please send me a message first instead of throwing out a 1? I always send my swaps and if you didn't receive it most likely it has been lost by the post office and I will always send a replacement if you will just let me know. Just send me a nice private message and it's done! Let's have fun folks, this isn't a place for powertrips or freakouts about something that is supposed to be a fun hobby.

Also, before getting angry about something sent "3 hours late," consider that there are personal things going on in other people's lives, and cut them a little slack.

Favorite Teas. , Socks

Tea faves are as follows : Harney and Sons , Earl Grey Imperial

However Im dying to try the bee's knees tea .

No herbal teas and no fruit teas I have allergies to both

I dont care for TAZO teas they changed the ' formula ..

.

food and snacks

im on a plant based diet and on occasion I will eat a starlight mint for my breath and kills my sugar craving . I have never felt better in my life since I started eating a plant based diet .

my mail

My mail has been taking at least a week to two weeks to get anywhere . I hope the post will be back to normal soon . So please give it time . I will do the same for you .
