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 41 years. We have 2 orange kitties that do not get along. They came to us a year apart.

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.

I also recently started to enjoy making ATC and ephemera for junk journals, so items like fun papers and scraps and die cutouts are also welcome.

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: What a sweet little package, thank you so much!! And I love the quote you chose. I, too, get overwhelmed by todo items and have to break them down. Sometimes I go to ridiculous levels of detail, depending on how much I need to encourage myself! :D

Comment: Hi Kathy! Thank you so very much for the lovely selection of cards you chose for me. The gnome is absolutely darling and I just love the Canadian Rockies 'license plate' card. Even the stamps on your envelope are beautiful! I'm always so disappointed in our US stamps--we're always trying to make a politically correct statement with our stamps and I'd rather just have something pretty!

Comment: Thank you for the Star Trek card! I really love it - I have yet to watch Picard, as I am currently being sidetracked with rewatching the Original Series for the first time since childhood. Happy zine-making!

Comment: I would say what I love most about November end is the waterfalls after the first snow. It's cold but no one is there because of that. I also love sitting in coffee places that are tinyyyy and just super cute but you've got to really look for them. You can ping me, maybe we could meet also :)

I went to Omaha Neb museum and saw these humongous paintings...I stood there is awe...then up close to see the brush strokes...wow...I hope you have a wonderful trip! Thank you for the card.

Comment: Beautiful postcard, thank you. Have you seen the Northern Lights? Iโ€™m sure you have since youโ€™ve lived there most of your life. Iโ€™d love to see the lights in person someday. Yes, I think youโ€™d enjoy junk journals. Glue books look funโ€” I might have to give that a try. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Comment: Thank you so much for t he great ad cards. Where are you getting the Go Cards? Are they old ones, traded ones or are you acquiring them from someplace. I hoard them. Hate to give up even one in a trade. It depends who my partner is. Love the But one. Aren't the graphics cool? Thanks again.

Comment: These pockets are beautiful! My favorite is the one with the see-through front. I love the letter set you enclosed too. Thank you so much for this wonderful swap from Canada! I look forward to adding it to my journal. I loved your letter. Oh, to have a place like that nearby. When we lived in Michigan I went to a place in Ann Arbor where companies donated leftovers , but they charged (not much).

Thanks so much for the birthday goodies! Such beautiful card and stickers. Much appreciated.

carol on Aug 7, 2020:

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!

It was delightful to get a Christmas card from you! (I do the same thing, actually, about sending non-Swap mail๐Ÿ˜.) So fun to hear about the 70โ€™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
