Current News

I'm back🤗

I have been out of swapping for a while now as life just got to busy.

My last report was the birth of Alora she is 5 now and just finished kindergarten. We are buddies and she loves to craft as much as I do. I have her at least one day on the weekends so we can play.We just started to weave. It's fun and something she can do by her self, she made her moms birthday present 🤗 We love to go camping with my daughters family. Alora and I think up a project to do over the trip. She is learning to read by herself and will read words from my current book to me. I love having her around!

About Me

I'm married to Chuck for a long time now, sense 1976, met him at 14 married him at 18. He is my best friend.

We have 2 grown kids:

Stasia married to Robert and a granddaughter Alora.

Donavan married to Christina

6 cats that are just like my kids all spoiled rotten.

I can no longer work do to a fall at work causing spinal cord injury, and deal with a lot of pain. I am damaged at T7-T8 that is just behind the heart. I fell in February and the damage was not found until November . The good news is they caught it before I became paralyzed.

Swapping gives me pleasure to share my talents, and to receive the talents of others.

My Pets

We have 6 cats now. We lost Bella. She will always be remembered.

Trouble (yes the name fits), Smoky, Baby, PJ, Rampage, and MacGyver.

We are a rescue home and fix them as soon as we can. We have even enclosed our backyard to keep the cats safe.

My family and I feel that there are so many cats and dogs out there that need love and a good home.

To see my babies check them out on Flickr
