About Me

UPDATE: 4/24/19:

Just an update on the postal issues I've had in the past. Our postal carrier retired and the pick ups now seem more consistent. The mail still seems to run slow, but I think with all the new technology it may be that way for a while. I try to keep the communication lines open with my partners and this doesn't seem to be an issue. I've also tried to use tracking numbers more often as the need arrises. 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 - RIP my sweet friend, I miss you so much. I had to have Lenny B put to sleep, with his age and the fact that he had completely stopped eating. He passed away 3/2/19. I haven't had the heart to change this until now. I sit here crying hard enough, I can't hardly see to type this update. I do miss him terribly but I know he isn't suffering. Our family continues to grow smaller. RIP my old friend.

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.

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

SerenaAzureth rated for ATC - Free Themed #12 (USA) on May 20, 2019
Comment: I am at a loss for words. This was an amazing package! Thank you so much for the fun ATC, but all these washi samples are blowing my mind! I will have a fabulous time finding unique and interesting crafts to do with them! These really have opened up my understanding of washi. I never knew there were so, so many types and designs. Thank you oh, oh, oh so much!
Response: I knew that after I read that you said you bought your first roll of washi I just had to send you some samples. I have hundreds of rolls. I buy them off of eBay and etsy most of the time. It is one of my favorite items to buy and I use it Occasionally on my ATCs but mostly for decorating my envelopes when I'm sending my swaps and then to give samples of them for extras to my partners if it's related to something in their profiles. My favorite thing to craft is ATCs and I learned about making them after joining Swap bot. I now have hundreds in my collection. my goal it to get them all organized into binders. Have fun and thank you so much for the heart.......=)
