About Me

All the swaps I owed that I have addresses for has been shipped. Please look at rating for tracking info. one swap I have tried repeatedly to get address with no luck, if I get it I will send. I have even tracked down on facebook and messaged with no response. I also have tracked down several emails and sent messages, again with no reply. So i have decided to send three pdf ladybug items to the email that hasnt bounced back.. I doubt she will get on And rerate but it is about making amends. This is the only way i can think to do that. AFTER a Loooong personal issue I am back.

I have just realized my memory is not as good anymore :-( I have bought a journal to keep track of my recipe swaps and what I send. If i send you something I have already sent please let me know and I will send you a new one.

***Please note that I hit send when I leave it at the box at the post office. Sometimes it is after their last pick up. so it will be postmarked the next business day

PLEASE PLEASE IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A SWAP I WILL RESEND. I send most with tracking and can provide tracking info for you

Favorite colors are blue, hunter green, navy, mauve moss green. Purple too. Really all colors just depends on what it is for. Ie i want a brown suv but toyota doesnt carry a daek brown :-(

my house is natural browns, mauve and moss green. my grandson's room is ocean themed as well as the main bathroom.

Married to C he likes hunting, personal defense, likes gun magazines and going to gun shows (KY redneck but love him to death). He is a die hard marine, still has the haircut. He lost his dad in Vietnam when he was 4 so anything memorial, if anyone lives near dc a picture of the wall of David Littleton with the people's name that surround him in all directions ( i would love to make a cross stitch picture of it) that would be awesome!!

K is 34 married to M They have two kids, L is 6. He loves minecraft figures, anytihng to do with bugs and sea life, currently learning spanish, so spanish book kindergarten- 2nd grade would be great. S is 3. she is a girly girl tomboy.

We do have two rescued dogs, Arden was a bait dog before he was taken from his owner. He now has his forever home with us. Super sweet dog 67.5% Great pyrenees, 12.5% black lab, 12.5% American staffordshire and 7.5% categorized guard dog breeds. we arent sure how old he is when we got him they said about 2 ( three vets and the shelter he went to after being taken from his owners) but recently he has had some major health issues where he cant really walk. after testing we found more issues. we had known that his foot had been broken but not treated. well his hip was fractured as well!!! he has bridging on his spine. He presents as 6-8 years old with all his issues from abuse :-(Surgeon said it doesnt matter how old he is the abuse is overwhelming and he presents as a senior dog so that is how we are dealing with him. it doesnt change his treatment. he is being treated with acupuncture, laser and injections plus some holistic meds, pain and anti inflammatory medication. Lucy we rescued from a fleamarket she was in a 18 x 12 cage with 4 or 5 other pups, we took her and she couldnt walk or eat... when we took her to vet she wasnt even 6 weeks old!!!! she was about 3 weeks, her ears werent even opened! they told us she was treeingwalker and blue tick. HAHA her body looks like she is exactly half and put together down the middle. She is very little blue tick I think 1.7% treeing walker 20% and the rest Viszla. she is 6. born on my son's birthday. I try not to have dog hair in my swaps but Arden is a super shedder so cant guarentee. UPDATE on ARDEN: took him to the surgeon and the vet today.. his acls are torn as well. Surgery on the first one next week. also found out that his teeth were not chipped as I thought but blunted to not injury the "good dogs" BREAKS MY HEART. He is currently has a help me up sling on so we can help him get around. PLease keep him in your thoughts and prayers

My favorite swaps to receive are ones that come from the heart. I had someone send me a small bag of polished wood and a letter opener from gayana (think that is how you spell it) I have the pieces in a jar and if I ever get anymore I will add them to it.

Profile quote #25

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Poohtat on Mar 16, 2018:

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.” ― Henri J.M. Nouwen

Profile Quote #25 β€œIf you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.” ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Profile Quote #24 β€œLife is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself.” ― C. JoyBell C.
