About Me

Hello swappers, I'm Katie! I'm 37 years old and I live in northern Virginia, near Washington D.C. I love all things creative and crafty and I usually spend my free time knitting, sewing, quilting, cooking, baking, practicing calligraphy or attempting to draw. I also enjoy long bike rides and walks with my dog. And snail mail of course!

I always read my partners profile and try to send things they will like, even when it's not required. I've discovered that I enjoy sending more than receiving! My goal is to create a beautiful piece of mail that will put a smile on my partner's face. I've received some truly special swaps that the sender has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into and it absolutely makes my day β™₯

If you haven't received a swap from me in a timely manner, please let me know and I will be happy to resend. I will never flake and I always send my swaps on time!! That being said...I understand that life gets in the way sometimes, so if you need a little more time to send just let me know.

I'm open to private swaps and I'm hoping to find a few regular pen pals!

What Makes Me Happy

  • My favorite colors are beige, taupe, and blush pink. I really like soft, muted, dusty colors
  • Brown kraft paper
  • Watercolor
  • Vintage illustrations (plants, animals, scientific type illustrations)
  • Snail mail/air mail/postal themes
  • Floral themes, especially roses
  • Botanicals and houseplants
  • Forest or wilderness themes
  • Birds, especially owls
  • Bears, raccoons, squirrels, squid/octopus, moths
  • Coffee/Tea
  • Mushrooms
  • Fall
  • Christmas
  • Favorite scents: rose, lavender, vanilla, eucalyptus
  • Favorite flavors: rose, vanilla, mint, butterscotch, cinnamon, lemon, pineapple

Dislikes

  • Disney

My Wishlist

If you need ideas for what to send me, these are the things I use most often:

  • Vintage book pages/cut outs
  • Vintage or vintage-style ephemera
  • Vintage stamps (used or unused)
  • Pressed flowers
  • Letter sets, note cards, non-touristy postcards
  • Memo pads/pages
  • Grid washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Rub-on/print-on stickers
  • Printed tissue paper and napkins
  • Paper doilies (neutral colors)
  • Anything Pepin Press or Rifle Paper Co.
  • Tea--chai, oolong, roobios and herbal teas
  • Anything related to Travelers notebooks. I just started using one and I love it!!

For gift type swaps...I like sheet masks, lip balm and other bath/beauty stuff, candles, gummi candy, tea, hot chocolate

Favorite Books

Two of my favorites are Good Omens and The Book of Lost Things. But I mostly read non fiction covering all kinds of subjects, from nutrition and food politics to philosophy and supernatural phenomena.

Favorite Movies

My favorite movies are True Romance, Amadeus, Labyrinth, the Big Lebowski, comedies with Adam Sandler, and any John Wayne or Clint Eastwood western. Also weird and thought provoking movies like 2001 and Donnie Darko.
