About Me

Hi! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm Katharina from Germany. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช You can call me Kate though.

I'll turn 30 this year and live with my boyfriend in a very small town. In fact I moved in with him only recently. ๐Ÿ’‘๐Ÿก

We work entirely too much, but I would love to get a chance to let my creative juices flow again.

Favorite Books

๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“– I still adore the Harry Potter series and I love the Rivers of London series too. I've also recently read A Streetcat named Bob and enjoyed it very much.

Others: - Little Women - Food Wars (manga) - The Little House series

Still to read: - The Invisible Library series - Warrior Cats - and lots of others I don't remember at the moment ๐Ÿ˜…

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy sewing and I love to crochet. I also used to zentangle and paper craft - I usually made postcards as I love sending and receiving mail. โœ‰

I recently picked something back up that I used to love doing: crochet. And I'm debating whether to try my hand at embroidery. ๐Ÿ’ฎ

A craft that I tried for the first time only this past September is making ATCs. And I can honestly say that I love it! โœ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿ–โœ‚๏ธ I love all the freedom and creativity of it all and the seemingly endless possibilities of making them.

I'd love to receive ATCs about any of my likes for profile-based swaps. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Favorite Music

I love music of most kinds. ๐ŸŽถ

I used to sing in a choir and still enjoy singing by myself at home or in the car.

Just to name a few of favourites: - Celtic Woman - Ed Sheeran - Rosenstolz - Die Toten Hosen - Intros from (childhood) series and movies - Sunrise Avenue - etc.

Favorite Television

  • Forever (Still so so so sad it ended after only one season. ๐Ÿ˜ญ)
  • Criminal Minds
  • Criminal Minds Beyond Borders
  • Greys Anatomy
  • Outlander
  • The Walking Dead (for the stories - the zombies not so much)

Anime: (movies and series) - Sword Art Online (everything) - Danmachi - Your Name - The Anonymous Noise - A Silent Voice - Record of Lodoss War - possible Record of Grancrest War - Gate - Madmoiselle Hanamura #1 - Highschool DxD - Guardian of the Spirit - K-on

About swapping

IMPORTANT! I have very bad arachnophobia! So please don't send anything with spiders!

Like to swap:

  • touristy postcards
  • animal postcards

  • aurora borealis / aurora australis

  • aerial view

  • photos

  • letters

  • souvenirs

  • candy

  • tea

  • Also open to new ideas. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Animals I absolutely adore: - cats - dogs - platypus - sloths - otters / beavers - prairie dogs and groundhogs - hippos - meerkats - pandas - red pandas - katta lemurs - kangaroos and wallabys - wombats - koalas - penguins - polar bears - quokkas - owls - squirrels


I also love travelling and receiving anything travel-related. Would love to go to Canada, Japan, Iceland and New Zealand in the future.

Favourite colours are: ๐ŸŒˆ - the night sky (dark blue with twinkling stars) - the universe or underwater (purples, greens, blues) - rainbows - dark blue - dark red - dark purple - dark green - pink (if it's not too much) - and just generally colours complementing each other

Pokemon! Anything pokemon! Gotta catch 'em all! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I really love all the cutesy-type pokemon, also Eevee and all its evolutions. Gotta cuddle 'em all! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

I discovered 2 new passions recently:

  • pressed pennies
  • 5D diamond painting

I love Halloween and Christmas! ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽ…

And my favourite seasons are spring ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒฑ, fall ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽƒ, and winter. โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ†


Please notice:

I'm in Germany which means I'm about 9 hours ahead of the swap-bot website and mail is picked up in the morning where I live. I will mark a swap as sent once I dropped it in the mailbox for pickup. But this means that my swaps will almost always be postmarked at least a day later than my "sent date" here. Just FYI!

Comment: What an awesome card! ๐Ÿ˜œYou did a great job on this sloth! Thank you! โค๏ธ
Comment: Aaaawwww..... Dein Kirby ist SO niedlich! โ™ฅ Und den Hintergrund finde ich super (wie hast Du den gemacht?!?)! Ich konnte Konsolen- und Handheld-Spiele auch immer nur bei Freunden zocken. Und ich war unglaublich schlecht, weil mir die รœbung fehlte! :D Kirby habe ich tatsรคchlich auch auf dem Gameboy einer Freundin gespielt. Am besten fand ich immer die Level im Schloss, weil mir die Musik so gefallen hat... Hach... Das waren echt noch Zeiten.... Vielen Dank fรผr die coole Karte! :)

Comment: Thank you for your answers. I just thought I'd add that an Australian once told me that it's not true that every animal in Australia is trying to kill you! :-P And that deadly spiders are really few too.

Comment: Out of curiosity, has the cat given birth yet? I love kittens :)) i am so glad that you finally got to see the wombat. Were you allowed to touch it? I am also looking forward to a consecutive 4 days off work in early July after 40 days of convention that starts next week.

Comment: What great pictures! Thanks so much for sharing, these were so neat to see :)
Comment: Beautiful work! I love how the watercolour works with the design. Thank you!
Comment: TheCupcake Cat ATC is precious! Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome ATC and the back story on the game Horizon! I told my husband about it - he is really into post apocalyptic games. He is going to see if he can find it on one of his game shop sites (Steam...Humble Bundle...etc). And I think your watercolor technique is pretty cool!
Comment: What a cool ATC! My son has Pokemon Gold (my daughter had Silver). They always bought the two different versions so they could trade. Very nice monochromatic background with different textures :)
Comment: I love your Cupcake Cat ATC! The true cupcake liner was a great idea, and your cat drawing is oh so cute! Thank you!
