July 31 2021 - My sweet boy cat, Butters, has passed away. My heart is broken.


Just a disclaimer...some mail is still taking 2 to 3 weeks to get to me, so if you sent something and haven’t heard from me please give it a little more time!

What I spend my time on these days:

  • sleeping in
  • taking care of my kitties
  • bullet journaling
  • making things
  • playing Fortnite with my nieces
  • 52tagshannemade (Instagram)
  • Animal Crossing
  • whimsy
  • decluttering

If ever something I send doesn't get to you, please let me know so I have a chance to correct it. As much as we rely on the postal service, they too make mistakes and lose things. I get it.(where are my keys again?)

My verse for 2021:

Stuff About Me

I turned 42 in February.
For the last 18 years, I've been married to Dave. He's an engineer and he has a little Cessna he likes to fly around for fun.

I'm an enneagram 5 and an INFJ.

I'm totally a cat person. These days I spend my cat time with three "formerly feral" kitties, who have adopted us.

I'm on Instagram... @ tigerlilyknotwise
