    Yes Louise I have only 1 cat. Two tiny kittens came to my deck..Peach took one look at them and threw himself against the glass door. He was roaring! Needless to say I found homes for the babies before Peach destroyed them!

    Sibi .. I can't believe you don't just LOVE your birthday! Around here it is "MY DAY" and my family had better not forget it! I am fine with a card and a phone call but do love to celebrate my special day.

    Now, another clue for my SP...You have a zip code...You are in the USA...you live West of me..that is all for now!

    I am sorry you didn't get my name Krystyna but I feel like I am known to you! I am off to Joann's this morning to do some shopping for my SP!!!!

    My SP has a cat. Maybe it's a tiger or lion. Maybe just a cat. Who knows?

    I like pink but I'm sure there are many who don't.

    Secret Pal # 1 Clue- I am busy making an item you requested... and animal print is not your thing.

    Secret Pal # 2 Clue- You are a mystery reader with a desire to move!

    Working on my packages and will mail them out on Monday or Tuesday. More clues to come... I have two great secret pals!!

    So your just going to have to wait hahahaha.

    Hand work???????? I've been known to staple hems.............. . In Scotland they call a safety pin a 'Glasgow button'. Funnily I was born in Glasgow.

    One little problem I have had with various SP's - they mention authors they like but they never say which books they have read by that author! Hard to know what to get!

    Hmm... I am one of those who doesn't really like pinks. Especially hot pinks.
    I also don't have an embroidery machine or do hand work.

    BUT, my SP does hand work and I have STUFF from that estate sale still.

    Yes. Stuff. Muaahaha

    OK - well, I have a spoiled, cuddly dog -- actually four of them!

    For my SP -- I had originally planned a "coffee" theme or "chocolate" theme to my box, but she doesn't like either. She does collect a rather common article which just happened to be included this week in Hobby Lobby's 50% off sale so I got three of them. We both dislike black licorice. And she lives sort of northwest of me. Oooh. Did I say too much?

    I know that I am one who doesn't "list" favorite authors.

    Mainly because I listen to audio books by "series" if there are
    2 or more books in a series I will get ALL of them before I start
    listening to them (until newer books get published). I do things
    this way because I like to go from one book right into another.

    Not to mention I will usually get as many if not all the books by
    an author. Once I have listened to everything that I could get from
    an author I will move onto a new author.

    To help keep track of the authors & books I have listened to (or read)
    I go to a website called "fictiondb". It is "limited" free, but for me
    the $20 per year for unlimited access is well worth it, but many people
    may not think so.

    The reason I find this website to be worth the annual cost is because
    I have tried numerous other ways to keep track of my audiobooks,
    and this was by far the easiest, least "complicated" method for me.

    My SP likes mysteries, so I plan to send her a book or two.

    Went shopping. Have both boxes ready. Will fill out the cute cards I have to go with the boxes and hopefully, get them in the mail tomorrow. SP # 1, you live in the state I was born in. SP #2, you live in an area where my hubby once lived.
    Can it be you????

    Live today as if it may be your last, for who knows...
