Hello! I'm Katelynn.
Born and raised in Canada and still loving living by the mountains, I'm recently unemployed and loving every minute of getting back to my creative side that this free time has offered. Seeing as we're land-locked and it's safer indoors, I opened an Etsy store (Unexplored Pages) at the beginning of August where I'm selling my watercolour bookmarks, but I hope to also one day sell my artwork - maybe even have it in a gallery in town! I drink waaaay too much coffee and whiskey (sometimes even together), collecting notebooks and pens and stickers I'll never use, and getting mail.
I was on Swap-Bot and Postcrossing for years, but in a fit of depression deleted my accounts and have no idea where they went.. I look forward to re-building my rapport and sending fun mail again! I have a little chest full of my old postcards and swaps from years past and it has always brightened my days.. Putting a well-thought letter or mail-art in the mail box is one of the best feelings, just like receiving them is.
Over the years I've been incredibly fortunate to have been able to travel in my free time, and it's one of my greatest passions. One day in the near future I hope to get a visa and move abroad, learn a new language, and immerse myself in a new country and culture. I'm addicted to travel documentaries and shows and adventure books, so please please pass on any recommendations you have!!
Despite my likes & dislikes up above, for art and ATC swaps please send things in your own style and of things that make you happy! I have a vast array of likes and dislikes and am not easily offended. Art is meant to be expressed the way you feel it, so please send and make whatever feels right for you!!
The ATC's and Mail Art swaps I will send won't have much, if any stickers. I enjoy working in a variety of mediums - charcoal, ink, scratchart, watercolour, gouache, and acrylic - so I treat each of them as mini paintings or drawings. I hope you're not disappointed by them! I've never been good at scrapbooking or bullet journaling, but my goodness do I admire those who are!!
I guess in cases of pen pal and writing journals, here are a couple of my "favourites" to compare interests! Also, these are ordered in the way they came to mind, not in order of favourites.
I'm also a huge fan of Manhwa and my morning routine consists of reading Webtoons with my coffee in the morning. If you have any manhwa you follow please share!!
My brother and I watch the airing season on the weekends together so this list is very long.
I'll update this as things are received (dates are combined between Swap-Bot and Postcrossing). Mail seems to be getting to my recipients faster than mail gets to me, so I apologize for the delays!
