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 38 years. A year ago we rescued a cute little orange kitty from the cold. He is still with us today. Last month (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 and postcards that have bicycles, anchors,typewriters,fountain pens,envelopes,mail related.

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 as soon as I receive a swap. 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: Hello again (just posted on the tartan card) -- cool card of the prime ministers. I guess the first I remember was Pierre Trudeau, who was in the US news a lot. I know of Diefenbaker because a couple of years ago I visited the DiefenBUNKER outside Ottawa. Best, Al

Comment: I was so delighted to open your card that accompanied this swap. I spend entirely too much time at my own local reuse center. I am touched that you took the time to pick up those queens for me. They are lovely and fit perfectly into my collection. Love the card too! Wish I could add more hearts!

Comment: Off and on, I have been looking for this swap. Since it arrived. Not everyday, just once in awhile, thinking I would find it or maybe it was a mistake. rotflol I've not been well but tody I was blessed. I decided to check the archived swaps...here it is and so I FINALLY rated you. I am so very sorry it took so long. I have no idea why I would archive something I had not rated!!!
Response: Thanks for rating and the heart. Glad you found it.

KarenFife on Dec 11, 2018:

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
