My name is Kat Sanders. I am an artist, writer and crafter living in Glen Allen, VA, USA. You can see my work on Deviant Art (zaubrer) and my art site, The Painted Kat.
I am in the process of trying to get a Etsy store up and running. I have a few things up if you want to check it out. Mostly, I just need to take pictures of my arts and crafts to be able to add them to the store.
Check out my Instagram for in progress pieces and non-swap art!
I love getting mail art, especially ATCs. Every time I get an envelope in the mail, I jump for joy (not literally, I have bad knees). The more decorations, the better!
Allergies: Most perfumes Chamomile Eucalyptus
Here is a timeline on how I handle mail art swaps:
When I join a swap, I start making the item leaving one or two small things undone.
Example: If I am working on a tangle ATC letter, I will complete the letter in black and white but I will not color it in.
Then once I receive the name of my partner, I will visit their profile to find one or two ways to personalize my item.
Example: For the letter ATC, I will find a favorite color and color in the letter using color pencils or markers.
Then I will place my item in either a plastic sleeve or plastic bag and place the item in a card with a hand written note. (Please note that the plastic sleeve/bag is a new addition. My first couple of swaps weren't in plastic.)
I usually mail them out on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday as those are the days I work. If something happens and the deadline for mailing is approaching, I will make a special trip to the post office. Please be aware that I live in Glen Allen, VA, USA and I do participate in international swaps as often as I can afford them.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to message me. I check in on swap-bot at least daily if not more often.
UPDATED 06 APRIL 2014: I am fond of adding color to swaps where applicable. I usually try to go to a swapper's profile to find out their favorite color. I have found that most swappers don't put their favorite colors on their profile. I think it would be great to see a lot of favorite on a profile to help provide ideas. If you see a favorite that I don't have on a profile, message me and I will add it. I have a few below.
Colors: Purple, Black (no Pink - I hate the color pink!)
Food: Chocolate, Coconut
Quote: "I used to be Snow White, but then I drifted." -Mae West
Style: Steampunk, Goth
Phrase: Cool Beans
The Big Bang Theory
Top Five Movies:
Yes, I like musicals!!!
I read science fictions, fantasy, mysteries and romance, but mostly I read fan fiction of the slash variety.
I have very eclectic taste in music...
80's Hair Bands
I listen to country in the car because I like to sing along. I listen to Apocalytica and other band with no vocals at home so that I can concentrate on what I'm doing (usually reading or drawing). I listen to Pink, No Doubt and others when I want to dance around the house or just playing online.
I have always wanted to try to make stain glass, but it is too expensive at this time.
