Who Am I?

Hi everybody!

My name is Kat (short for Kathleen). I am 26, married for 6 years with 3 kids. Aidan (6), Annessa (4), Aarilyn (1). I am currently a SAHM (Stay at home mom) and am homeschooling my son. We are an LDS (mormon) family as well.

I am a very outgoing, fun person. I love to craft, bake, plan "Pinterest" level birthday parties and snail mail.

I was super active on this site about 5 years ago. I am trying to get back into the swing of things and make new memories with all you lovely meeples.

Private Swaps

I have very recently discovered how much I love private swaps. I love to tailor the swap to my partner and make each swap extra special.
If you think we'd have something in common OR would just like to swap with me, go ahead and PM me. I promise I won't bite. If I'm not too keen on the idea I will say so.

Also, I'd much rather have a private swap with a swappers with some experience... say, rated for atleast 5 swaps.

Sending and Rating

    • I want to leave mention here that I never mark a swap sent unless I have sent it. I DO NOT have control when it's picked up or sent through the Postal Service. I check sent once I have either put it in my mailbox OR I've personally gone to the post office or mailing center.
    • I want to say that I always rate fairly and promptly. I also would appreciate if you did the same in return, I put a lot of time and effort into my swaps and it's nice to know that you liked them. I've been flaked on quite bit since I've started and sometimes your rating is all I get in return.
    • Last but not least, If you don't receive your package please contact me first rather than rating me down. I'll be more than happy to resend although It may take me a few days to get it out. Money, getting all the same things for the swap take a bit of time and I won't be able to send it out the next day. I WILL keep in contact with you through-out the resend process.

My likes on on Postcards is very big and random. I use to think I only wanted the touristy PC's of landmarks and hometowns but I also love art, comic, ad you name it and I like it! I am a little iffy on homemade however. I only have 1 in my collection and it's not the best. I could be converted if I saw someones amazing, hard work.

I also would love to have a fabric PC. I'm very interested to see what one looks like and maybe try it out sometime.

My only request from my future partners? Please send the PC naked, stamped and with a note or quote from you. I haven't received any blank PC's but I know some people have.

Happy Swapping!

Comment: I love the matchbox and the inchies and the goodies. However, I really hate rating down, but this swap was due to be sent out on the 29th, you marked sent on the 1st (Sunday), and the postage was PAID on the 3rd. I am totally understanding that things in life happen but there was no communication. 5.21 I am changing the rating. Thank you for the response you PMed me. As I stated I am very understanding. Thank you again for the great matchbox and goodies.
Response: I have a rating for the inchie inchie matchbox on march 13th.. it was a 3. I don't dispute because it is my fault. I gave my husband the swap on the day of to send. That day was also my first craft show and I assumed he sent it. I didn't get back on the computer for a couple days so that's why it was clicked sent late. Sadly come monday I found out that it was still in the car and I freaked. I'd only had this happen once before and all I could think was getting it in the mail. I know that was probably the stupidest thing but I think I may have already been resigned to a 3. I do apologize for this and I also apologize for letting you know.

Comment: Thank you for the frog pc. I was very astonished when I read that it came from the US as it is from France. Has made a world journey. Hope your life stays good as it is and your little family too.
Response: glad you liked it!
Comment: Hey, Kat... Thanks so much for the postcard! That is so funny that people think "Richland" must be a wonderful place to live because the word "Rich" is in it..hahaha..I can tell you that "Normal" is basically just that..a "Normal" town..we have two big universities in our town, "Illinois State University" and "Illinois Wesleyan University", as well as a couple of community colleges, so there is a good possibility you will run into someone someday who has been here...we have at least 35,000 students here per year, so that's a lot of grads we send out into the world!! (haha) we thought it was so funny when we moved here and would see signs in the parking lots for parking that would say "Normal Public Library" and "Normal Police Department"..but we got over it. haha...hope you have a great Sunday!!
Response: haha I have decided I MUST visit this place just to take pictures of the 'normal police department'
