About Cathy...

Hello- I love getting my little rectangles (or squares or any shape really) in the mail- much nicer than bills. Im always amazed by just how many different ones there are. Thanks in advance for sending me a card.

Current avatar - An illustration I keep in my crafting area. The caption says "Life is art - live yours in color"

I am an ICU nurse in Houston-.(and yes we are VERY busy and exhausted).
I love to read, visit museums (Houston has a museum district), go to the movies, go to festivals, I also have a stash of paper crafting goodies that mostly languish (some day), and of course write postcards. I like to decorate the back of the card, and have a collection of older stamps (to use on the cards). I have lived in Scotland (im Scottish), London, Tenerife, Dallas, New Orleans and now Houston. I enjoy spending time with my 2 daughters- always an adventure.
It's the simple things in life that make me happy - a good cup of coffee, British chocolate ,Indian curry, hanging out with friends ,the sound of the ocean....................

Can you please date the card. . Unusual stamps are cool. Write snippets and stories from your life - what did you do today for instance.
