Items for Trade


11.1.17- Life is crazy busy now, so for the time being I will be taking a break from swapping so I have one less thing to stress about. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to PM me or email me at [email protected]. If any of you lovely swappers are interested in being an admin for my group simple swaps to keep it active feel free to drop me a line. I'll return once things settle down a bit, which should hopefully be around the new year.

Hi there, I'm KAT (not katlyn)!!!

Discounted USA Postage Stamps Available ~ Message me if interested!

☽~If you have ANY issues with a swap I've sent, please contact me before rating. I enjoy sending swaps out more than I enjoy receiving them and don't join swaps I cannot fulfill!~☾

Dislikes/ Un-needed Items

✘ CENSORSHIP!!! ✘ RELIGION✘ washi tape ✘ note cards ✘ memo pads, list pages, or sticky notes ✘ chocolate ✘ "keep calm and carry on" ✘ disney/pixar, and 'kids' stuff in general ✘ celebrities, brand names ✘ holiday items ✘ tea, as I have WAY too much currently! ✘ anything that says blessed/blessings etc. ✘


I collect the following topic postcards:

❤ Vintage!!! The older the better! I adore collecting these in ~any~ topic!! I even love receiving used vintage postcards pre-1960 (in an envelope). ❤ black and white photography ❤ graveyards and morbid themes (mortuaries, autopsies, serial killers, anything along those lines) ❤ nature scenes with no people or buildings ❤ Gothic ❤ Victorian ❤ Punk ❤ weird (interpret this however you'd like, if it makes you think WTF, I'll probably like it) ❤ industrial & mechanical ❤ dark ❤ occult ❤ politically incorrect (by today's standards) ❤ giraffes ❤ sea creatures (mostly squids, octopus, jellyfish and coral) ❤ nudity/obscenity ❤ gore ❤ horror ❤ national parks (vintage preferred, but all are great) ❤ art deco ❤ art nouveau ❤ well-created handmade (watercolor, collage, painted, etc.) ❤

I'm not into the following topics:

Sorry, but if you send a postcard with a metered label (aka no stamps) you probably won't get a heart. I love stamps, especially old ones, on my postcards.

✖ religions in any context ✖ holiday (of any kind) ✖ multi-view ✖ ones with a lot of text, or only text ✖ flags ✖ people, famous or non ✖ ad/free unless I am in a swap specifically for that ✖ tourist-y (unless vintage 1970's or older) ✖ vintage reproduction, I am just not into faux vintage things. I like the real deal ✖


Anything that fits my profile is always welcome, but I typically dislike words on ATC's and drawn cards.

I collect ones that are:

❤collaged and mixed media ❤ vintage ❤nature ❤ gothic ❤ dark ❤ victorian ❤ black and white ❤ morbid ❤ cool colors (blue, green, purple) ❤ ferns and mushrooms ❤ trippy/ psychedelic ❤ profile favorites ❤ abstract ❤

Not so much into:

✖ drawn, unless profile specific ✖ words and phrases on cards ✖ religious ✖ sports ✖ poorly created ✖ sticker slapped ✖

Hosting/Swap Info

Thanks for joining one of my swaps! Here's what you can expect:

☯ If you are flaked on I will gladly send you something! I always expect people in my swaps or groups to receive something. No one should feel left out! Send me a message and I'll take care of you! JUST BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW IF I HAVEN'T CONTACTED YOU!

☯ I try to be lenient and understanding. Life isn't always predictable, so unless someone is a serial flaker or late sender I like to give people another chance. Two is your limit, however.

☯ Newbies are welcome in ~most~ of my swaps, because I understand that people have to start somewhere to acquire a few ratings. More intense and time-consuming swaps will require stricter guidelines.

☯ I HATE people who critique every last detail, like postmarks that are a day or two "late", or measuring things to find them to be exact. If you do this and I find out you will be BANNED! Swapping is for FUN not critiquing every last detail!

☯ To me a "filled out" profile is at least 2-3 sentences, or a paragraph. Some people aren't picky about what they get, and might not have a lot to say. I do not allow people with 'blank profiles', but If this bothers you, do not join my swaps.

☯ I DON'T DO DRAMA! All drama queens will be blocked and banned from all of my swaps and groups. This includes people who argue about swap "types", are generally nit-picky, police other user's swaps, or are annoying to deal with in swaps.

☯ Once I block someone it is FINAL! I block people for a reason (usually because I have had a negative experience with you, or someone else has and I don't want to join that shit show). I do not remove blocks, do not get your friends to message me about it.

☯ I typically assign partners within 24 hours of sign up deadline (3 am EST). If partners are not assigned within this time frame, feel free to PM me. I always try to get swap partners assigned as soon as possible, but we all have lives to live and cannot be online 24/7!

☯ Send anything kinds of swaps or ones in which you can send ATC's, handmade items, or mail art are CLEARLY type 3 swaps since these are things that take time to create. Sure not everyone will, but it's not fair to downgrade those that do.

☯ If you don't agree with how I do my swaps DON'T JOIN THEM! Simple as that. You will NOT be missed by anyone in them! =D

If you're gonna be a bitch, no one will want to swap with you, FYI~
