About Me

Hello, my name is Kathy. I am a 47 year old married mother of two teens. We have a French bulldog named Chuck, and two Gecko lizards...Janet and Lizzie. I enjoy my wonderful family!

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I also work outside the home as an accountant for a large fitness club.

My focus word for 2018 is COURAGE. I've had some difficult family health issues over the past year and a half, and it has been really hard for me to deal with them. This year, in 2018, my goal is to have the courage to accept and deal with these circumstances the best that I can. I need to begin the healing process and set a good example for my daughters.

Me, A-Z

These are the things I love...

A: Autumn, my favorite season

B: Bullet Journaling; Brocante Home, a favorite blog; Bookmarks; the Beach;

C: Christmas, my favorite holiday; Crochet; Cheerful anything; My Cricut machine; Candles; chocolate (dark is my favorite, but I love it all); the word "COURAGE" (I would like anything with the word on it, as this is my focus word for 2018)

S: Sewing; Stationery; Stickers; Sparkles; Starbucks, especially the holiday flavors; Soap, handmade or bought...I love having nice hand soap at my sink; SuperBetter by Jane McGonigal (if you've read this and/or play, I'd love to hear how you are using this book.)

Comment: I absolutely love the postcard--Hearst Castle is on my must-visit list! And I can see why you are so happy :) I'm so glad that your daughter is enjoying school. My girl is only in first grade and already getting too stressed by it all. What a great idea, to take a road trip together! lol I may start making plans for the future now.

Comment: Great squares. Sorry they was returned. What do you mean by third one? Thanks for flowers and marker
Response: I'm glad it was received :-) By third one I meant...we had three partners for this swap. Your package was returned to me, the second partner's arrived and was rated; and my third partner I haven't heard either way from although I did message her.

Comment: Thank you! Love the colors you chose! And the stitch marker is so cool! I taught myself to crochet too, through old books & now I look to YT for stitches I haven't tried before. It's great because books can be confusing!

Comment: Kathy, I don't even know where to begin rating this journal and gift. You just blew me away with this whole swap. I loved, LOVED reading your journal - it was so positive and uplifting and just....your gratitude for all of the things you wrote about was amazing and inspiring. And the gift...it was so much more than I would or could have expected. I just cannot thank you enough! We have so much in common too...I wanted to start writing you a letter in response as I reading! :D Again, thank you for just making my whole day so much the brighter with your swap. There are not enough hearts to give you. xoxo PS - Your penmanship is just fine! :D <3

SusanSpooky rated for #12: Mini Stocking of Goodies on Jan 25, 2018
Comment: Hello, I'm sorry for rating late here. This holiday season was a bit rough for me so I ended up rating late on a few swaps. I wanted you to know I really enjoyed the swap you sent. The stocking was very lovely and we ended up using it as our cat's stocking for Christmas. The goodies were great, and it was overall a wonderful swap. I really hope you had a joyful Christmas.
Comment: Thank you for your Reading Log! Sounds like you read some really interesting books! Happy Reading! :)

Comment: Thanks for sending your reading log!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! I hope you were able to accomplish what you set out to do this Christmas season with Advent and the Liturgical calendar. We follow a very special advent book each year that we got when our children were young. It helps us focus on the what's really important during Christmastime. Thank you also for the cute polar bear letter set...I love it! Happy New Year!
