About Me

UPDATE: I'M BACK! After an extended break, I'm back and looking forward to swapping again :)

Hello! I'm Kate. A bit about me... well, I love animals - I have 2 cats, a dog and a rabbit, but I love all animals. I'm a vegetarian. I love books - they're my favourite things :) I also love music, especially punk and horror punk, rock, metal, country and blues.

I love anything to do with the USA. America is definitely my spiritual home.. maybe it's cos my birthday is July 4th ;) (although I haven't been there yet!). My dream is to do a roadtrip across America on Route 66.

I also like watching films, gaming and, of course, crafting ;)

I never flake, so if you haven't recieved something from me, please please just PM me and I'll be more than happy to resend and sort it out with you :)

I always rate, but if by any weird chance I have overlooked rating you, just give me a nudge and I'll rate right away. I know how frustrating it can be waiting for someone to rate you!

I love anything a bit quirky, kitsch or downright weird. I'm interested in anything a bit different - vampires, zombies, wicca, magic, unicorns, dragons, retro stuff, Victoriana, antiques, tea, candles, Americana, Route 66, the Midwest, cowboys, the Beat generation, 1940's and 1950's (anything to do with those decades), rockabilly, skulls, cupcakes, leopard print and 80's movies XD

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music - punk, rock, metal, blues, country, motown, soul, '50's music. Some of my all-time favourite bands are: Misfits, NOFX, Descendents, Offspring, The Cure, Isley Brothers, AFI, Free, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Blink 182, Cock Sparrer, Sham 69 and Stiff Little Fingers. I'm open to any genre of music though and I do enjoy a lot of older music too :)

Favorite Books

There are so, so many books that I adore... I'll just list a few here... Catcher in the Rye, The Wasp Factory, The Virgin Suicides, Girl Interrupted, Pride and Prejudice, Trainspotting, On The Road, The Book Thief, Small Island, Being There, Invisible Monsters, Fight Club, Frankenstein, Dracula and many more :)

Favorite Movies

I love '80s and 90s movies... E.T., Gremlins, Uncle Buck, Dirty Dancing, Ghost, Beetlejuice, Lost Boys, Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, This is Spinal Tap, Here's some others I love: The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, American Beauty, The Virgin Suicides, Girl Interrupted, Fight Club, Ghost World, Blow, Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride, On The Waterfront, all the Harry Potter films, Donnie Darko, The Butterfly Effect, A.I, Pulp Fiction, Hot Fuzz, Dumb and Dumber and more.

Favorite Television

Peep Show, Alan Partridge, Father Ted, Eastenders, Coronation Street, Casualty, The Apprentice, documentaries, anything about America, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Hell's Kitchen, Ramsay's Kitchen NIghtmares, Undercover Boss, Secret Millionaire. I have to admit, I love a bit of telly and always have it on in the background while I'm crafting!

Favorite Crafts

Mainly sewing, making plushies (esp sock monsters!) and papercrafts, journalling, scrapbooking, card making, altered books. I also love making ATCs but I'm up for giving anything a try! ^^

I also love anything related to Halloween - witchy stuff, pumpkins, skulls, black cats - you get the idea :)

I love mythical creatures - unicorns, dragons, vampires, zombies, gnomes, fairies, wizards, imps.. All that sort of stuff fascinates me.

A QUICK NOTE: I am a smoker and I do have pets so could never guarantee that the odd stray hair will never get into a package, although I always try my best to avoid this, and I never smoke whilst making up my swaps :-)


I have recently started collecting postcards - preferably sent naked and stamped. My favourite types are American postcards, sent from America... cards from your city/state, pictures of the USA etc. I have a burgeoning little collection developing! :D

If you're not from the USA then I would still love a postcard from your city/country, sent naked (written on and stamped)

Things I would LOVE to receive

Postcards (naked - written on and stamped) esp. from USA (see above)

ATCs - I collect them, my favourite themes would be the USA, route 66, books, Halloween, witchy, mythical creatures, animals, vintage. But anything is fine :)

Sharpies - any colour, preferably ultra fine

ATC supplies - basically anything I could use to make an ATC (if it relates to the above themes, even better!)

Anything Americana or Fourth of July themed

Washi tape samples

Ribbon - any size or type. Even small-ish off-cuts are useful to me :)

Fabric - FQs, any type.. small off-cuts

Jewellery findings/random findings

Stamped images

Anything fairytale, Moomin, owl, mermaid, woodland whimsy, Alice in Wonderland or Wizard of Oz themed

Punchies or die cuts

Stickers (not Disney or reward please)

Handmade envelopes, any size

Scrapbooking/card making papers & embellishments

Anything with catnip in, for my furry friends

Mail art and zines

Craft tutorials - I love trying new things and I'm always on the lookout for interesting projects to try!

USA themed fridge magnets

Anything spooky or Halloween themed

Prefer not to receive

Anything religious or religious themed (apart from Christmas cards, and holiday season items. I love Christmas!)

Anything with nuts, meat/gelatine or liquorice in

Thanks for reading my profile and happy swapping :)

dobie256 rated for TPP: Flower PC on Sep 12, 2013
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard. Good luck with your flower planting adventures -- it is both therapeutic and addictive LOL. After a couple years of annuals I fell in love with perennials. After 20 years of perennials I really fell in love with day lilies (very little maintenance and tons of flowers). So have fun with discovering what works for you. <3
Response: Thank you :) and thanks for the rating and heart too :)

Thank you so much for the great postcards from CPG July '13 WTA! I love them! Also, thank you for the offer of postage for the David Tennant pic, but someone already sent me some. She does have a Doctor Who comic that I might send to Matt Smith, though. I'll weigh it and let you know. Thanks so much!
