NEWSFLASH..... we have here in TX had a big mercury spill in the post office that sorts our mail and gets it to us. So I have received nothing since last Thursday..,,,8/9/18....and there is no promise when the mail will begin again to be delivered. Not to fear all mail does not go thru that building to get to you. So if you haven't gotten a rating from me this is probably why .... I am still waiting for it to be delivered hoping this ends soon...... will keep all informed. Well that was interesting..... GLAD it's over and mail seems to be running smoothly both ways........ THIS HAS BEEN FIXED......

HoWDY…… I am BACK…..have gotten married….Honeymooned….. moved to Highland Village, TX and am ready to SWAP….…..Hi everybody.... My name is Kate..... and I am really excited about swap-bot..........enjoy everything I get….. after 35 years living in Houston I have decided to move lock, stock and barrel to NW of Dallas….. all for LOVE….

I love all kinds of beads, glass beads, Czech beads, wooden beads vintage beads...….and stuff….did I say I like stuff and making ATC's and cards from stuff other people might THROW AWAY….. kinda like say holy crap that can be recycled and re used….. love this stuff!
