About Me

My name is Kathy.

I'm retired from sales and marketing in the newspaper industry. Before newspapers, I was in sales for International health and beauty aids and pharmaceuticals.

I've been married for 40 years. We rescued a cute little orange kitty from the cold a couple of years ago. He is still with us today. January 2019... we rescued another orange kitty from the cold. Hope the 2 boys eventually learn to get along in our small house.

I enjoy all things snail mail.... letter writing, postcrossing, greeting cards. I am just getting into paper crafting and card making. Love to visit art galleries and museums.

I spend lots of time researching family history and even joined some genealogical societies and attended some conventions.

Can spend hours browsing a book store or the stacks in a library or the book section in a thrift store or garage sale but I have a basement full of books I haven't read yet.

I find that my interests are ever evolving as I meet new people via pen pal and postcrossing sites and learn about all their interests. I usually continue to research and explore all the fun hobbies and crafts you tell me about.

Enjoy travel and in particular road trips to the southwestern United States visiting National Parks and Historic Sites.

I like to take in a live play especially 'fringe theatre'. I enjoy a good production of Shakespeare.

Favorite Music

The Eagles, Jazz and Broadway musicals.

Favorite Television

Currently enjoy The Walking Dead and shows like Survivor, Big Brother, Dancing with the Stars. Love light murder mystery shows like Castle or Bones or Murdoch Mysteries etc.

Likes

Rather fond of tea...especially chocolate orange but love to try new and different.

Always happy to receive stationery and postcards.... notecards, post its , stickers, washi and air mail stickers from your country. An unused postcard always welcome especially Lantern Press.

Postcrossing meetup cards.

Mail art decorated envelopes.

Word or phrases stickers.

rubber stamps

Love Christmas all year.

Looking for washi tape,stickers,notecards and postcards that have bicycles, anchors,typewriters,fountain pens,envelopes,mail related and images of wine glasses and wine bottles.

PLEASE NOTE: SEEDS FROM OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY ARE NOT ALLOWED BY CANADA CUSTOMS EVEN IF THEY ARE FACTORY SEALED.

Mail Service

I do not sign up for something I cannot complete. I will not 'flake'. I will resend if necessary. Please contact me with any concerns. I usually mail items at a post office. They assure me the mail is picked up Monday to Friday at 5:00 pm. I rate all swaps as soon as possible. I realize the mail is truly snail like so I give plenty of time for the mail to get here. Hope you will do the same.

Comment: I really liked how your ATC turned out. I don't mind a few stickers and the ones you selected as well as placement were great. Thank you for the background on how you created it (I love those stories) and thanks for the extras, esp the lace!

Comment: Hello Kathy, I love it when people do their best to find something "textile" related. So I love the socalled linen postcard in which producing cotton is used. Very nice . Thank you very much.

Comment: Hello! Thanks for the lovely card. I`ve always wanted to go to Canada. And yes, Latvians are pretty used to foreigners not knowing much about us. A little known fact - one of our former presidents a couple of years ago was originally Canadian! She was a great lady :) I wish you and your family all the best during these uncertain times!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap, i don't know where to start. The deco on the envelopes is fab, is that Washi on the back? The stamps are also gorgeous. I'll definitely use the Gryffindor sticker and the mini bucket list. I've been fascinated by Mandalas for a while and trying to learn to draw/dot them and the rangoli on the card is a lovely example. I recently started to scan old family photo's so I've been looking at some wedding photo's taken from the 40's 50's 60's and 70's. Definitely a very different style to mine and modern photography with the advent of digital. 🙂

Thanks so much for the lovely letter in response to my Cut & Paste swap! I really enjoyed reading about your travels to my state. I agree--it is an amazing place! If you've never been to Jerome, or Bisbee, those are two other places I'd recommend next time you come. Opposite ends of the state, but both very cool little artsy towns. I am so jealous of your trip to NYC where you saw Branagh in Macbeth! I'm sure it was amazing! NYC is top of my list for places to go next. Hopefully we'll all be able to travel again soon.

More commentary arising from the Tabasco Hostel postcard: White Sands is one of the my favorite places! But sadly most of my relatives have left New Mexico so I won't have easy excuses to visit any more. And I'd never actually been to Las Vegas NM (unless I was super young and don't remember) although I had a roommate from there at a short workshop I attended in high school.

I've been to Windsor once as a tourist when we first moved to Michigan (my first time to Canada!) and I've run along the riverfront during the Detroit International Half Marathon. The crowds in Windsor are very supportive.

Thanks for the fun chatty postcard!

Thank you so much of the "resend"!!! The note card you used is beautiful, and the stamp on the envie, OH MY! I love it! Thank you as well for the little extras tucked inside! You are so appreciated!

Hi Kathy, just a note to say that #132 to you is on its way😊 left today, hey hey hey!

It was delightful to get a Christmas card from you! (I do the same thing, actually, about sending non-Swap mail😁.) So fun to hear about the 70’s. They were great times for me too! Hope we will swap again sometime! We have so many common interests! Thank you for replying - you are a super swapper!!!! Karen
