About Me

hi all im Cat .09/16/2021 Had to say goodbye to my oldest chihuahua Gin she was suffering so we had to put her to sleep due to her heart failing . I love dogs and currently have 4 dogs instead of the crazy cat lady Im the crazy dog lady LOL . I rescued all of them . I love stickers , pen paling , card making , bookmarks ( I also make bookmarks ) .I love gardening especially roses and other flowers . vegetable gardening is too hard and too many bugs LOL . I'm over the age of 40 and under 90 LOL. want to live a happy life and so far i have managed to do that . I have a tea pot collection from over the years and if I spot one in a thrift store I am going to check it out .I enjoy a good cup or pot of tea . I love bowler type hats especially wool ones in the winter . I also wear the straw type in the summer . I also love colorful scarfs to wear with turtlenecks in the winter . You will find me mostly in paper swaps . I think paper is fantastic and a great way to communicate . Nothing like the smell and feel of real paper. I went to catholic school but no longer feel connected to the catholic church and have since attended pentecostal church most of my adult life and feel so at home there and I love it .. God is good all the time . I dont push my religion on other people or other faiths . I am a very kind person and I hope that reflects well in the way I handle things . One day I hope to Eat , Pray , Love my way through Tuscany , I also hope to go to Israel at some point as well ..I sing and also play violin in a country band and we have alot of fun or did until this virus hit .I hope to be back playing soon

Im not a fan of profanity , or inapropriate behavior from anyone .

UPDATE: well since the outbreak I dont know when and if we will ever go back to playing . I pray all of this illness is a distant memory very soon . .

DISLIKES: No atcs nothing personal i just dont like them . nothing that smells of cigarette smoke, musty or mold smells they will go into the trash immediately . thanks for understanding .


Let me say I give hearts generously because I think anyone who takes time out of their day to send me something deserves a heart . Just because I dont like it is not a reason not to give a heart .

If you contact me saying you will be late with a swap then I will understand


Things happen but communication should happen as well . thanks. Also should your swap come here ripped up then i wont rate you at all because that is neither your fault or mine .

I hope you understand that .

Also please message me for my zip code if you are sending a swap to me.

If you dont see a rating from me it is because i never got the swap from you and i do rate as soon as i get them .

I also want to put up here if you don't rate that is just rude .

Any swap I host I will make note of the swappers who don't rate and you wont be welcome in any of my swaps .


And futhermore you relay attitude towards me you will be banned also from any future swaps I host . Since some of you think it is okay to be nasty to a swap host or hostess .

debbiespoms rated for "T" BOOK SWAP on Jun 15, 2021
Comment: Thank you very much, for the Tuscan Child book. My mom will love this book. I mainly do these swaps, so she can get books too. Thank you also for your nice note, recipes, and the cute drawings of Popeye & Olive Oil. Nice job done! As for the recipes. I have tried the Creamy Tuscan before & didn't care for it. Because of the spinach. Which I don't care for. But tried it anyway, to see if the spinach taste would be covered by the rest of the ingredients. Didn't work. But I do love Black beans & cucumbers. So, Will give this black bean & cucumber recipe a try.
Response: oh im so happy you liked all of it . Im sorry you dont like the creamy tuscan chicken but im sure you will love the black bean and cucumber recipe . That is a fave of mine . glad you liked popeye and olive oil too . Happy swapping .
Comment: The bookmarks and tea arrived today, thank you! I'm a big fan of Lady Grey, I will have to make a cup tomorrow.
Response: so glad it got there . Thank you so much and happy swapping .
