About Me

UPDATE 1/17/18:

I have been back from my break and have been sending out swaps. Please everyone be patient because we have very poor mail service in our area. I always try to send an email if something is going to be late. We have had a lot of snow and ice in our area and there have been days my mail carrier has not even picked up my mail. I do not live in an area that is problematic even with bad weather, and I have complained to the postal service but nothing seems to change. Due to my disability it is very hard for me to get to the post office. i will be complaining again because I checked late last night and the mail carrier again did not pick up my mail. i am terribly sorry and hope you can all understand. Thank you to all my partners for their patience........=)

A NOTE ABOUT SWAPPING: If I join a swap I will always follow through and send it. If you haven't received a swap from me within a reasonable amount of time (I like to give at least 30 days for anything international) please send me a message before leaving a rating, I would be more than happy to resend you the swap. It is terribly disappointing to not receive something you have been waiting for. 2nd SWAPPING NOTE: I will always leave a rating. If I haven't rated you drop me a line to ensure I received what you sent and just to remind me. Sometimes I get super busy and just plain forget. If you want a heart from me just follow the swap rules and pay attention to my profile. Take the time to read about who I am as a person and get to know me. I'll probably be able to tell if you didn't. If you are making an ATC for me please note that in my collection I prefer flat ATCs, NO 3D ATCs. With all that being said lets start swapping........=0)

A NOTE ABOUT POSTAGE: If you receive a swap from me with postage due then know I am so SORRY. Please contact me ASAP and I will reimburse you. I have a scale at home and try to fill my envies as full as the stamp/postage will allow. I enjoy sending extras, and I like sharing what I have, but sometimes I tend to stuff my envies too much. Thank you for your patience concerning this matter........=)

NOW ABOUT ME AND MINE: I am 58 years old, divorced and the mother of 3 children, 2 girls, Jami (Billy) and Renee(Jesse), 1 boy, Adam (Taylor). I have 6 and one on the way (due date 12/28/17) grandkids, 4 boys (Dakota, Jackson, Jayden and Dason) and 2 girls (Haddie and Suri). My whole life revolves around God, my kids, grand kids and my fur babies.

Update: My son has married a nice girl, her name is Taylor. They have been married a year as of this past December. My new grand son's name is Dason Scott, he was born 10/16/16 and he is a sweet and happy baby.

I love doing RAKs!!

I love all kinds of animals but I really love and enjoy my cats and my dog.

I have done rescues and currently have 4 cats. I keep my son's HUGE but GENTLE boxer/pit bull mix. I love him like he's mine.

As I said before, I love animals in general and one of my passions is fighting animal cruelty and encouraging people to spay and neuter their pets.

My Kitties

Here are all my furry babies (kitties) ~~ They have all been Spayed or Neutered~~:

Boo Boo - Female, tabby in color, approximately 7 years old. She was also an orphaned kitten that I took in when she was about 3 weeks old. I bottle fed her, she is very independant and loves to hunt critters.

Lenny B - Male, black and white in color, approximately 13 years old. He is my fat cat, a real big boy who loves to mother any rescue kitties I bring in. You can always find him holding 1 or 2 down and giving them baths, and he doesn't miss behind the ears, lol.

Uno - Female, black in color, approximately 7 years old. She was an offspring of Black Jack's that happened before I got him neutered. She is almost feral and has the sweetest nature.

My Dog

Roscoe - Male, black and white Boxer/Pit Bull mix, approximately 6 years old. He's my buddy, and my baby. He is such a beautiful dog and he has gotten so big. I think he is about 104 lbs (from his last vet visit). Roscoe is really a gentle giant and he is the king of beggars. If I'm eating supper he will come next to me and lay his head in my lap or on a table and look at me with those big pitiful eyes and I just have to share. I have become a real dog lover!!!

Favorite books and music

I like books that are thrillers, suspensful and I also like self help books and I like biographys and autobiographys.

Comment: You are such an amazing person. There is no way that I can mention everything you blessed me with. The kids adored their packages of stickers and we have special plans for them. I feel like Christmas has come! You're letter blessed me more than anything. It's been a tough couple of weeks. God is so amazing as are you for being led by Him. God Bless you and thank you oh so much. I can't wait to get to crafting with all the wonderful things you sent and the angel is already in a special place in my collection!
Response: I'm so happy, you note made my day. I'm always thankful when God uses me. God Bless and thank you so much for the heart. After reading your profile I had you on my mind a lot and I wanted this package to be extra special for you and the kids. I have so many stickers and some are getting a little old but I tried to pick out ones that hadn't lost their stickiness. Also tell Mason I had some Spiderman bandaids but I couldn't find them so that is why he got some of the my little pony ones. I hope to talk to you again. Hugs and prayers being sent your way........=)
Comment: Wow! This was like opening presents on Christmas morning! There are so many wonderful items in this package. Thank you so much. I can’t wait to start working on some ATCs and some JAMs. Thank you!
Response: I'm so very glad you liked everything I sent. I found so much in your profile and sometimes when I get started packing out items I can't hardly stop. I love making my partners happy. Enjoy and thank you so much for the heart......=)
Gobarb rated for EASU: Advice from a Cat ATC Swap on Aug 18, 2018
Comment: Hi Ginny. I got your ATC today. I had a very difficult time opening the outside envelope. Please try not to use so much Packing tape on it. When I tried to open the ATC envelope, the glue from the envelope stuck to the ATC. Even though I was not able to get all of the paper off of the card, I like the ATC. You must have used Mod Podge to cover the ATC and that is why it stuck to the envelope. Thank you for all of the kitty stuff. I guess you could tell that I am a crazy cat person too! πŸ˜‰
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I'm so so sorry about the ATC and I will gladly send you another one. Sorry about the tape I worry that the envelope isn't sturdy enough and afraid the items will not make it to you. Also even after all that thank you so much for the heart. Please let me know about resending the ATC, I will gladly do so. Talk to you soon.......=)

Comment: 1. What a beautiful ATC!! Were those little gems from nail polishing kits? I have been eyeing those as potential sources or cute tiny stuff for ATCs. 2. OH, THE GREEN!!!! Thank you soooooo much!!!!!! Such a beautiful collection and even the sleeves. Love it!! 3. I also love sunflowers which I think I never mentioned, so awesome call on the card. Thank you!!
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I really try to please my partners by paying attention to their profiles. I'm not sure which gems you are talking about but they were not from a nail polish kit. I love bright and bold colors and green is one of my faves. Thank you so much for the heart........=)
