About Me

Hello, Kat in the house. I lived in the West Coast for a year and I’m back. I am missing In and Out burger, Hobees and Daiso! I guess I'll always be an East Coast gal. I'm a foodie and I love cooking and trying out new recipes. That is one of my passions. I watch a lot of cooking shows and tv shows in general. Felix the cat is my favorite cartoon character. I love to drink tea- my favorite is green tea. My favorite brand is Harney & Sons. I like doing arts and crafts. I have dabbled with paper quilling. So many pretty things to make with color paper. I like to do needle felting in my spare time and made alot of felt projects that I'm proud of. I like to sew. I have made purses, keychains, blankets, clothes for dolls, pillowcases and repaired tons of clothes. In my spare time I like doing jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, playing board games, internet games, shopping at antique stores, drawing, painting, going to concerts, fairs, farmer's market, going to movies, reading manga books. I enjoy 5D diamond painting. It is so much fun and relaxing. I love to curl up in the winter time with my cocoa and read a good book. I like Pinterest and spend way too much time pinning although you can get alot of great ideas from there. Instagram is also time consuming but a lot of fun to see how creative people are from all over the world!

Swaps

I've gotten some amazing swaps from very kind and awesome people. I am grateful to have an outlet to show my creativity and have fun meeting people in the process. "In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you." (-Buddha). Please note that I like to recycle as much as possible. I make a lot of envies with clean paper bags, calendars, books, etc...so please don’t take offense if you get one. It’s important to recycle and as small is it may seem, I want to do my part. Happy swapping! P.S. Don't forget to have a good time.

I am honest and committed when I agree to do something. If you do not receive a swap from me then it got lost in the mail. Please let me know and I will gladly send another one. If you do receive my swap, would you be so kind as to rate me so that I know you received it.
