***I am aware of the cards that were not received from the swaps in 2015 and I have tried to make contact to resend and clear these up. I really feel bad. I should have checked to make sure. I am so sorry they weren't received. I have PM'd, responded and commented on 2/25/2018 with no reply. She read the message on 2/27/18, but not been back online since then. I did send another message on 3/7/18, but it is unread. I resent to one on 3/10/18 and it was international. ***
Well, it's been a couple of years since life got pretty rough for awhile. I seriously stayed most of the time behind my locked bedroom door. It is two years of unbelievable lol so I won't write a book, but we are now the custodial grandparents of a 5 year old Mason and his 2 1/2 year old sister Alexis. They were abandoned by my daughter and her boyfriend to pursue a life of drugs (meth). it's been hard and I wouldn't post, but I disappeared for two years. It's been hard and even harder for Mason. My daughter graduated with a 4.11 GPA and two diplomas from high school. It's hard to type even now. I have no idea where she is, but she is waiting trial on 7 felony indictments. I follow through the courts. *
I can't for the life of me get a graphic to post. Does it have to be on something like photo bucket. I can't remember. **
My name is Kathy. I am married to the Steve, love of my life. I have 5 grown children (ages 35 - 26) and 8 grandchildren (14 - 2 1\2). 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 2 1/2 and she doesn't know them since she was still a baby. We have 2 cats. Puffy is 18 & Sassy is 11.. We also have a chiweenie (Dachshund/Chihuahua) named Gracie.
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 4K 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.
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.
I love This is Us, Criminal Minds, Law & Order SVU, Greys Anatomy, NCIS and Scandal. I enjoy watching Joyce Meyer and Jesse Duplantis too. I really am enjoying Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.
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, cats, thimbles ~ Hubby says I collect everything.
I like: Postcards Coffee Tea Notecards, Notepads, Stickers & Washi tape. .
Recipes, especially healthy ones and those fun for kids, recipe cards. 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, peanut butter M & Ms.
Emphera for ATCs, scrap booking or other crafts. I like Vintage graphics. 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 lol.
Mary Engelbreit, Debbie Mumm, Sue Dreamer & Precious Moments
My kitchen colors are burgundy, gold, with a little green & blue.
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 little playful. Getting back there right now. God is faithful and I trust Him
Trying to find our new normal. There's school, sports, playgrounds, potty training, bedtimes & baths again. Most our age aren't used to having a 2 year old tag along any more.
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.
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!
Mason (5) loves Paw Patrol, Spiderman, Teenage Ninja Mutant turtles, Legos, Batman, 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 and doing addition. He's in 4K this year.
Alexis (2) loves babies, (Lala babies & Fruitcake meaning Lala Loopsie and Strawberry Shortcake are her favorites, but she hasn't met one she didn't like), My Little Pony, Barbies, Dora, coloring, stickers, singing, dancing. She's ribbons & bows one day and camo & boots the next! She has a big time sweet tooth!
