About Me

My name is Kathy. I am married to the Steve, love of my life. I have 5 grown children (ages 36 - 26) and 8 grandchildren (15 - 3). We now have custody of my daughters children. Mason is 5 and could definitely use your prayers. Losing his parents has been tough on him. Alexis is 3 and she doesn't know them since she was still a baby. We have 12 year old cat named Sassy. We also have a chiweenie (Dachshund/Chihuahua) named Gracie.

**I pm'd about the other 1, but she has not been back on until May. I resent 5/15. but to make sure something was received I recent again on 7/11/18. I also talked to the postmaster to make sure that everything was correct including postage to the best that he could with the information of course. 7/12 She did receive the resend from 5/15

I love being outside. We enjoy camping, hiking, and fishing. I love to work in the yard and garden. I love the smell of Gardenias, Honey Suckle and Magnolias when they start blooming, but plant many flowers in my yard and really enjoy visiting botanical gardens or seeing wild flowers when we hike.

I also love crafts of any kind. I sew, make ATCs, scrapbook, cross stitch,do plastic canvas and crochet mostly. I love patterns and material, of course. I enjoy browsing the local thrift or "antique" stores. We love to travel and see new places. Life has taken somewhat of a change. Since we're parents again and Mason is in 5K, we are more tied down.

I love Jesus so anything with a scripture is always a favorite. His goodness never ceases to amaze me. Most of the reading that I do is books by Joyce Meyer, Max Lucado, Joel Osteen, Beth Moore and similar. I am currently doing a bible study by Beth Moore The Quest.

Favorite Music

I listen to Contemporary Christian like Sidewalk Prophets, Jaime Grace, Toby Mac, Mercy Me, Natalie Grant, Lauren Diagle, King & Country, Hillsong, Crystal Lewis, and many more. I love to sing! I love music. I love 70s & 80s music and a little country at times. I got Barney down pat again too!! Alexis adores to sing and dance.

Favorite Television

I love This is Us, Criminal Minds, Law & Order SVU, Greys Anatomy, NCIS and Handmaids Tale. I enjoy watching Joyce Meyer and Jesse Duplantis too. I really am enjoying Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

Misc Likes & Random Thoughts

I love all kinds of animals, including cats, dogs, bears. I love to watch the birds at the bird feeder from my sun room. I love cardinals & hummingbirds. I have several hummingbird feeders around the yard. I love flowers, butterflies & dragonflies.

I collect angels, and, thimbles ~ Hubby says I collect everything.

I like: *Postcards *Coffee *Tea *Washi tape.
*Recipes, especially healthy ones and those fun for kids I don't like anything too spicy hot. I still bake for my kids, grandkids and other gatherings, but try to find healthy alternatives whenever possible.

*Dark Chocolate (I generally have two pieces with coffee each afternoon). I also like sugar free mints or hard candy when I exercise. I occasionally enjoy caramel, & sea salt chocolate

  • Papers, die cuts & misc for ATCs, scrap booking or other crafts.
    *Stamps & stamp pads

I love to hear about interesting techniques you have used in your creations.

Fat Quarters or material pieces, ribbon, lace or interesting buttons.

Charms, and beads

I love anything homemade. Something else to try!

I like to walk in the early mornings when everything's fresh and crisp or at twilight when there seems to be a hush over things. This doesn't happen often right now lol.

I like to chat with a neighbor I meet walking or working in the yard. I can talk to about anyone that I meet. I tend to be positive, upbeat and a love to joke around. God is faithful and I trust Him. I love Jesus and He has never let me down.

Trying to find our new normal. There's school, sports, playgrounds, bedtimes & baths again. Most our age aren't used to having a preschooler tag along tag along any more. Mason is ADHD with ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) due to trama. I never realized something like that existed. Some days he's a real challenge.

I don't like dragons, realistic snakes, bugs( except for the cute ladybug type) or rodents, AC, witches, sorcerers, wizards, skulls, dark or gothic type things. After Gracie found a skunk, not so crazy about them. I am not a big fan of Halloween except maybe the lighter side like the children, candy or cats ( I love giving out candy and seeing their costumes and excited faces). I celebrate fall instead. I do like light steampunk that's not dark or revealing.

Swaps

Please PM and let me know if you don't receive a swap from me. I won't ever flake! I will always be glad to resend. I want my partners to enjoy being my partner and have a great experience, that is part of the fun.

I am pretty easy to please and will promptly send swaps. Please let me know if there is a problem. If I have missed something you need to know, just message me and I'll be happy to answer....and give you plenty to read since I can "talk" your ear off rofl!

My Grandchildren

Mason (5) loves Paw Patrol, Power Rangers, Teenage Ninja Mutant turtles, Legos, cars, trucks, motorcycles, candy, stickers, coloring and most of the normal things 5 year old boys like. His favorite color is green. He's so smart. He's already reading at a level 2 and doing addition & subtraction. He will start 5K this year.

Alexis (3) loves babies, My Little Pony, Barbies, Dora, Princesses,Daniel Tiger, Shopkins, coloring, stickers, singing, & dancing. She's ribbons & bows one day and camo & boots the next! She has a big time sweet tooth!
