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!!!

Profile checks completed for Artisan ATCs - Purple ATC. Have fun creating your purple ATC!

shirleyinCA on Feb 17, 2018:

Thanks for my Feb All About the Wishes: I love the CA Wineries map card and all those jumbo stickers will be such fun to use! Cute Wish granted swap card, too.

kiddomerriweather on Feb 14, 2018:

Thank you for the heaps of sticker flakes for my February AATW wishlist! I went and bought the neatest container for them. It's supposed to hold yogurt and the granola on top. I got it at the Family Dollar. I have such a mess in my work station, that I can't find my container of loose sticker flakes. So your selection gives me a good place to start another collection until I get through this mess. Slowly, but surely. Thanks a million!

CurlyTea on Jan 15, 2018:

Happy Birthday!

I hope you had a wonderful Birthday. Keep on celebrating all month long!
