Hiya everyone. Sorry, im so late in some of my swaps. Have been in Hospital and all i can say is that it threw me a bit. Im slowly getting on top of them all. Thanks for being so patient and understanding. Huggles Mandymoo =^..^=

26th Oct

Hiya everyone, Just wanted to let you know that i am running a little behind on some of my swaps. Have been having a few probs at home and have been a little distressed about it all. So just wanted to let you know that they are coming, just may be a little later than the usual time.
Thanks so much for your understanding.

Hugs Mandymoo =^..^=



About Me

Hiya. I'm Mandy

Im a 37 year old married, fun loving and friendly Chicky. My children walk on four paws and are covered in fur.

Im a HUGE Animal l♥ver. I Especially like Cats and have a great affinity for them.


I love to write letters, and swap things with new friends. Im an internet fan, and you will find me on face book everyday for a couple of hours.

I love cooking, but am not always successful in my baking. But i do try! :o)


I write in my journal every day and have some which i read over occasionally and wonder what was i thinking and why..lol
But it is very relaxing and it helps when you need to tell someone, but are unsure of others reactions. Safer in a book. =)


Fav Books and Television



I'm a real book worm. I have gone through many genres, and at the moment i'm into Crime/Mystery/Femle Investigators, and some Fantasy. If you have any good Authors Names, please let me know.

Some of my favourite Authors are, Lillian Jackson Braun (The Cat Who series..), James Patterson, Alison Croggon, Patricia Cornwell, J.D.Robb, to name a few. :o)



I don't usually watch a lot of tv. But some shows that i do watch are NCIS, Numbers, Burn Notice, Lie to me, CSI (all of them), two and a half men, Masterchef Australia Man verses Wild, Documentaries about the planets and wildlife.

Hestons Feasts - what an awesome (if somewhat crazy) chef. Love this show.

Favorite Crafts

well, I love drawing and painting. Not that i'm all that good at it. I think of myself as a bit of a try hard...LOL But it can be so relaxing to paint, just to let all thoughts but the picture i'm trying to create, come to life from the end of my brush.

i'm also an avid Journaller. I buy heaps of stickers and things to make the pages bright and fun. Esp when i read them after a few years.

I also like a mixture of all crafts, bit of knitting or cross stitch, scrapbooking, all kinds. I'm totally interested in New kinds also, like to try the ATC and the Dottee dolls. Also if you send me some paper patterns, i'll give them a shot. :o)

Owned by cats

Comment: Nice fail. This is the first time I've ever rated a 1. I was going to contact you but figured I'll never get this swap, based on the 1 ratings on your profile. Shame on you. Though I will be glad to change this rating to a 3 if I ever do get a Christmas card in my inbox.

Comment: This swap is now 2 months overdue and you have not been on the bot for a month. I will change your rating if I ever receive something.
Comment: Sorry to leave this but it is the 17 of December. I will re rate if I receive anything once you get back on your feet. This swap was marked as sent on Nov 27th but as yet have not received anything. I also see another person in this swap has not yet received.
Comment: Hi, i'm sorry to leave this rating; i understand that you were in hospital back in November but as it is now only 11 days away from Christmas and i've not heard from you i feel i must. If when you get back on your feet you still wish to send i will change this rating to a 3 for you.
Comment: thanks Mandy

Nnyla rated for Christian Inspiration or Encouragement on Oct 22, 2010
Comment: Dear, dear Mandy! Your package is so beautiful and, more importantly, it really touched my heart. Psalm 51 is one of my favs and I'm looking forward to mediating on the devotional you sent (love, love, love the way you worked the design with the card and devotional and stickers). The scripture card is so cute--keeping it on my desk! I'm placing the encouragement page in my journal--and I'm coming to your house to "steal" the rest of that cute stationery featuring 2 of my favorite things, sunflowers and bears. And thanks so much for the cute and fun stickers!!! Extra hugs and hearts for being a blessing to me!
Response: Your most welcome, dear. I'm so glad that i could encourage you. Psalm 51 is also one of my favourites. Thanks for a lovely response and rating. Blessing to you. Huggles Mandymoo =^..^=

Laynie on Jan 13, 2011:

Hi there. Your Ratings have fallen way below Group standards, for the "Treats and Sweets Swappers Group", so I will have to remove you. Hope your alright. Audra.

Thanks for your comments Mandy. Much appreciated. :) I am hoping my next Chiro visit on Thursday will help.

sweetypiedie on Sep 22, 2010:

thank you cat

Thanks for the great Sept wishes you sent me for the Aussie Swappers group! I love the cat post cards and the cute pieces of ribbon. You really cheered me up when I was having a painful day! Thanks. :)

Hiya mandymoo! I'm here through the "Read My Profile and Leave a Nice Comment" Swap! I've just gotta say, I love that link for "What NOT to send to Australia." Incredibly useful, and inadvertently hilarious.

My favorite forbidden item?

"mooncakes containing meat" \o/

I have to admit, I really am more of a fantasy fan but my best friend of 11 years is a mystery fan and she's the one who got me to read Laurie R. King's mystery series based on a fictional assistant to Sherlock Holmes. The Beekeeper's Apprentice is the first in the series, if you're interested.

Another Burn Notice fan! YAY! Have you been keeping up with the latest season? I'm totally in love with Jesse. ;D

Your furbabies are absolutely adorable, and it's so great to see cats who are loved. My friend rescued kittens in the area for a bit, and it just breaks the heart a bit to see how little some people care. They look gorgeous, and their names are so great. I can't believe you've also got dogs, a turtle, guinea pig, and chickens!

When I was a kid I saw the Rex Harrison version of Doctor Dolittle, and I was so jealous of the Doctor because of his home overflowing with animal friends. It looks like you've got a bit of that going on. :D

xshootingstarsx on Sep 3, 2010:

Hello :)

Nice to see a swapper from Australia. Where to do you live in Australia? I have parents who in live in Newcastle, NSW and I also lived there for 6 months. It's really a nice country to live in :)

Crochetninja on Sep 3, 2010:

What a lovely profile! I'm here for the 'Leave a nice comment on my profile' swap. Your cats are so pretty. I have two dogs also, but no cats. I see you enjoy journalling - I wish I could be more disciplined and write more in mine! I love doodling and zentangling too, and I'm a little bit obsessed with Facebook :-)
