About Me

Hello, Kat in the house. I lived in the West Coast for a year and I’m back. I am missing In and Out burger, Hobees and Daiso! I guess I'll always be an East Coast gal. I'm a foodie and I love cooking and trying out new recipes. That is one of my passions. I watch a lot of cooking shows (Pioneer woman rules!!!) and tv shows in general. Felix the cat is my favorite character. I love to drink tea- my favorite is green tea. My favorite brand is Harney & Sons. Simply love all their teas. I like doing arts and crafts. My work in progress project is paper quilling. I'm learning to make different designs to put on cards. So many pretty things to make with color paper. I like to do needle felting in my spare time and made alot of felt projects that I'm proud of and gave them away to my family which they loved. I make homemade ornaments every year for Christmas. I like to sew. I have made purses, keychains, blankets, clothes for dolls, pillowcases and repaired tons of clothes. In my spare time I like playing with Legos, doing jigsaw puzzles, playing board games, internet games, shopping at antique stores, drawing, painting, going to concerts, fairs, farmer's market, going to movies, reading manga books. I enjoy 3D diamond painting. It is so much fun and relaxing. I like Pinterest and spend way too much time pinning although you can get alot of great ideas from there. Instagram is also time consuming but a lot of fun to see how creative people are from all over the world!

I've gotten some amazing swaps from very kind and awesome people. I am grateful to have an outlet to show my creativity and have fun meeting people in the process. "In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you." (-Buddha). Please note that I like to recycle as much as possible. I make a lot of envies with clean paper bags, calendars, books, etc...so please don’t take offense if you get one. It’s important to recycle and as small is it may seem, I want to do my part. Happy swapping! P.S. Don't forget to have a good time.

I am honest and committed when I agree to do something. If you do not receive a swap from me then it got lost in the mail. Please let me know and I will gladly send another one. If you do receive my swap, would you be so kind as to rate me so that I know you received it.
