About Me

Hello, I'm Kaci.

I would describe myself as Aquarius, crafty, outgoing, spontaneous, funny, silly, loyal, and creative.

I love true crime and ghosts shows/movies/podcasts/books.

I am currently watching Brooklyn 99 on Netflix.

I am currently reading: The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna and just finished Deja Boo (book 6) and Deceased and Desist (book 5) by Carolyn Ridder Aspenson.

I love podcasts.

  • Favorite is Crime Junkie!!!! Followed by My Favorite Murder, Dateline, Criminal, Anatomy of Murder, and Park Predators.

We have two cats we saved from the local Animal Control. Bella on 30 January, 2015. She is a Tortie! Daisy we saved on 21 July, 2022. She is a grey/white Tabby. We also have a terrier mix (Half Australian Cattle dog and half Schnauzer) named Katie who is about 14.


I'm from WA State. My favorite flower is the Tulip. I like the rain.

My favorite holiday is HALLOWEEN.☺️ (I like Halloween items sent anytime.)

Thank you for the April WW! It was all intact, yet it came in a USPS We care envelope! So glad nothing was wrong with it.. Not even a slight tear! Thanks for the postcards, too!

Received the Earth Day surprise yesterday! Thank you so much for thinking of me! I love the way you altered the junk mail envelope with decorated gelli print. Looks like either deli or tracing paper. Gorgeous! Going into my journal. And what is the cool jelly looking sticker stuff? (a flower and a black collage piece) Hugs, Bonnie
