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 6 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 11 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.

Crickey - Had to finally be put to sleep. He was very ill. He is now resting in peace.

Uno - Female, black in color, approximately 6 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 Kids Dogs/My Dogs

My son decided he wanted a dog. He brought home a boxer/pit bull mix. He was about 4 months old and black and white in color. His name is Roscoe and I have loved him from day one. My son is not able to keep Roscoe with him so now I have him. 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.

I like several different kinds of music such as , christian, country, oldies, easy listening, soft rock.... I like Kid Rock, Tim McGraw, etc.

Comment: I've been facing some challenges lately, and receiving your generously stuffed package of scavenger hunt awesomeness, really lifted my spirits and I'm grateful. It was so much fun to see the ways you interpreted B I R D. I love all the bird washi tape and never know where to find the small Bible verses. The journals are perfect and I've never had a paper punch. Little things in tiny envelopes intrigue me and all the cute ribbons made me smile I'm in love with the puppy dogs and kitty cat paw prints. The journals and stickers will be put to good quickly. I'm going to leave it all spread on my desk for awhile, seeing it and playing with it all makes me smile. Great swap, thank you, it's a blessing
Response: I'm so very happy you liked what I sent. I love giving. It fills my heart with much joy. Thank you so much for my heart........=)

Thank you so much for the sticker flakes and ATC's you sent me for my November AATW wishlist. You are greatly appreciated. Thanks for making me smile. :)

sherba31 on Nov 13, 2017:

Thank you very much for the fun envie for AATW November. Love the variety of washi and the Christmas stickers. Take care.

mariamichelle on Nov 13, 2017:

Thank you for the November wish granted. I really love all the different paper.

Margothecat on Nov 10, 2017:

Wow!!! My goodness!! I LOVE all the sticker sheets you sent! They are beautiful! A lot of them I have never seen before. Thank you so much for your generosity :) It is always a pleasure to swap with you!

Love the stickers and card for my wish in the A Wish Granted group. Thank you for thinking of me.

libertylithium on Oct 28, 2017:

Thank you SO much for the lovely kawaii memos and stickers plus the much needed atc sleeves for AATW! I can't believe you found Mamegoma washi tape too- that is awesome! ^.^ this envie made my day.

I'm so delighted to hear you liked the atc I made for you as well. I read through your entire profile when putting together your envelope and for some reason, I felt really inspired to draw her for you!

I just put in an order for some adorable kawaii memos from a kawaii store in Pittsburgh! I went there once in person a couple years ago. (It's a few hours drive from here!) Anyways, perhaps they will be here in time for AATW November & I can send you some along with November wishes! I found the Rillakuma Universe memo pads there- they are so cute! :)

Hugs! Liberty
