About Me


Hi my name is Katie.

I'm a vegetarian and have been for the last 19 years I'm the only one in my family.

NOTE: I will rate as soon as I receive my swaps and would like the same curtsy if you have a problem or do not receive from me please contact me so that I can fix the problem, I will always send as I can't do dishonest. if I'm on holiday or will be offline for a while I will always put this at the top of my profile, I tend to be online at least once a day if not more.

NOTE: I sometimes use recycled packaging (not always just sometimes and if it is still good condition).

NOTE: I will contact my partners six weeks after sending (it works both ways if I haven't received or if I haven't been rated to see if their are any problems) SO IF I HAVEN'T RATED I HAVEN'T RECEIVED but will give it six weeks.


One of my greatest passions is reading, I read every day

I mostly read romance and erotica.


I prefer to watch movies than TV.

I like chick flicks/romances but won't pass up watching action movies, I get a bit carried away when they are on though (jumping up and down screaming at the TV for them to go faster etc) or comedy's

I love Christmas movies and like watching them right at the beginning of December to get me into the Christmas spirit.


My crafts are paper crafting, love scrapbooking and have been doing it for 6 years. I also cross stitch when I’m in the mood and learnt to crochet in 2018.

I really love paper crafts and mixed media art.

I finished my cake decorating course I decorated a Halloween cake, Christmas cake,Mothers day cake and a Calla lily cake, I also did my Grandmas 80th birthday cake.

I love to bake cookies and cakes etc.

Mail art- I really love to create this and receive it I keep all of them just need to get round to making that journal of them that I keep talking about LOL

I've recently started making postcard and love doing these also.

Likes/ Wishlist

Colours: Purples, lilacs and blues are my favorite but I like the combination of reds, yellow and oranges.

Animals: Elephants, Lions, Butterfly's, ladybirds, owls (cute not real)

Food: Chips, pasta, cake, hot chocolate with marshmallows- I love the guggyness. I prefer chewy/sucky sweets to Chocolate unless it’s on or in something,Strawberry milkshake. Rockstar the drink, Strawberry Fanta, not that keen on American Chocolate but I do like Hershey's cookies n creme

Me to you/ tatty teddy- I collect the figures (my mum is a bad influence she made me buy 2 last time I wanted one)

Holiday: Christmas- I love Christmas time and working with children always starts the feelings of Christmas of early. I love Christmas decorations (I don't get the putting handbags and shoe decorations on though).

Halloween- cute but not bloody and gruesome.

Oriental designs (love the colours and the tranquility of them.)

Yankee Candles- the sweet smelling ones not the flowery smells.

Washi tape

Novelty socks-UK size 6

Sharpies and fine liner pens (lots of different colours).

Mail art- I'm starting to collect this to go in a journal so any would be awesome.


Nail polish


Pajama bottoms (size L, 18 UK)

Motivational quotes



Sea glass decorations

Handmade Postcard- NOT store bought I've got no interest in collecting those but love to see other people art on a postcard.


Animals: Spiders, moths,

Food: meat, green beans, parsnips, MUSHROOMS (yuck), coffee, mango, not much of a tea drinker.

Kawaii- really not my thing.

Sticker slapping- I don't mind stickers in general I'd just like them if they where arranged in a way that made me think people put effort into deciding where they went.

Swappers who don't rate and flakers.

I just wrote you a little letter about this, but I keep my mail art collection and ATC's in a 1 1/2" binder! I use sheet protectors for the mail art and the 9 slot baseball card holders for the ATC's... so far, it works really well! I even have just little cool things in there that I really like;) Hugs!
