About Me

Hallo! I am a 33 year young German girl, living in the USA. I am married, I have two fur kids and I'm a new Mama to a little baby girl. (I work as a teacher's assistant at a German Immersion school. I love my job and I am working on becoming a German teacher.)

I am in love with mail. Letters, postcards, stamps, used and unused, mail art!! my mail lady, mailboxes.... I love it.

I swap for the joy of making others happy and getting mail myself and not for the rating.

If I participate in penpal swaps, I am actually interested in becoming penpals. I write long, personal letters and I would love to hear back from you :)

Though I haven't had very many cases of lost mail, it seems to happen, so please let me know if my swap did not reach you, thank you :)

Also, please be aware, that my P.O. Box is only 3.5 in x 5 in. If you are sending a larger envelope to me, please write "Do Not Bend" on the outside. (Or they will fold it to fit inside the box.) Thank you!!!

I just found out, that my mail gets postmarked 2 - 3 days after I am posting it in my mail box!! I live in a smaller town and my post office ships it to the city to get cancelled - what a bummer! :(

Favorite Crafts

I love to make my own stickers, car and wall decals with my Silhouette. I also love to make mail art, I love mail art. And mail art to me is every and any effort you put in decorating your mail.

For my own wedding, I created a everlasting bridal bouquet (not silk flowers..) and my own invitations. I enjoyed that a lot and I would love to do it for a living.

I recently started crocheting Granny Squares and I enjoy it a lot. I learned how to crochet flowers too and now I want to make other things too. I would love to crochet a fox one day. :)


Woodland! Everything woodland. I love Spring and Fall. My favorite colors are: teal and berry, both in combination with gold or silver or grey. Also mint, peach and rose gold. I like pretty feathers and everything dog related, too. I love hot beverages. Tea, except plain black or green tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cider,...

I have a Happy Planner and Bullet Journal and I love everything for my planners - such as planner stickers, stamps (clear cling or regular), washi, sticky notes, clips etc.


I had to get my first one to understand, that I don't want ad-cards. I appreciate to read some more on my card than just the name of the swap. ;)

I also don't like anything religious related.

I don't like Kawaii, at all. Sorry.

Please no American candy, ooops :D

Favorite Television

Netflix is a very good friend of mine, because I like to watch whole seasons of TV shows. Currently I am watching quite a lot of shows. Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy and New Girl being my favorites, but also How to get away with murder, Scandal, Homeland, Nashville, American Horror Story,.. I used to watch Gossip Girl (never thought, I would like it, but I do..), Desperate Housewives, Two and a half man, How I met your mother, Weeds, Malcolm in the middle, Dexter, LOST, Walking Dead and Army Wives.

Favorite Books

I love to read and listen to Audiobooks. Currently listening to the "Ayla" Series by Jean M Auel.

I am reading "Ein Bild von dir" by Jojo Moyes.

Favorite Movies

Water for Elephants (Awesome movie!) Amélie (Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain), The Blind Side, Inglorious Bastards, Elf!, Up, ....


It is very important to me that you know, exchanging letters is one of my most important hobbies to me. Mail connects people and since I am a foreigner in my own country, it is an important way to stay in touch with family and friends and I have learned it is possible to build friendship through letters, too.

I write long, chatty, personal letters and I trust my penpals.

I also like to decorate my envelopes, you might say it's not mail art, but it's art on my mail and you will never get a white envelope from me. If I join a penpal swap it is because I am actually looking for penpals and I really hope, you are, too.

I will always! reply to my letters.

Planner addiction

I am addicted to decorating and using my planner. I used to use an EC, I switched to the Happy Planner by Mambi. I currently also started a Bullet Journal and love it!

Dog Rescue

My husband and I are fostering dogs for our local rescue. We also adopted two rescue dogs. This is the most rewarding but also tough thing to do. I am very passionate about what I do.

Comment: Sounds like you found the perfect job. As for typewriters, I've used just about every kind there was and love the little portables. You may find it hard to get ribbons for one now. Enjoy.

Comment: What a joy reading your letter was for me! At first I didn't think it was going to be personal because it wasn't hand written. What a surprise! You'll be hearing from me! PS. Nope! I'll probably never stop saying that!

Hallo! Ich hab es leider noch nicht geschafft deinen Brief zu beantworten. Ich hab so viel Arbeit zur Zeit und jetzt verreise ich für 3 Wochen. Ich schreibe dir dann im April. Versprochen! Danke noch mal für deinen Brief. Ich hoffe alles ging gut mit dem Umzug. :) LG Katti

Hey Catrin!

I'm Dóri, your partner in Read Profile - Write comment swap. I see you're also addicted to snail mails, mee too! :) Although I'm not so brave to participate in lettermo.com :$ That's also very nice your dream came true and you live in the USA momentally :) I have been there, in Boston, New York, the Niagara Falls and Washington DC, but my dream country is Finland :) I haven't been there yet, but I hope in the next few years this will change :)

Hello, I am your partner for the Read Profile-Write Comment Swap. My mother was born in Germany, but I never have been there, one day. I love penpals too, but find it hard to write handwritten letters, it is much easier to type them or have an email penpal with having two active kids. Hope you have a great day.

indygirlfriend on Mar 11, 2013:

Me again! I hit send too quick! I am new to SWAP BOT and am enjoying swapping and getting to know new people. I like to swap art more than letters and postcards, but perhaps we will see each other in a swap one day!
Nice to get to know you!
