About Me

Hi. I am Kristen and in my early 40s from the Boston area. I've had penpals my whole life and am getting back into paper crafting after several years away.

Please don't send religious things.

Favorite Books

To Kill a Mockingbird, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, The House of the Spirits, Rebecca, The Dutch House, Just Mercy. I love fiction and non fiction.

Favorite Television

Lately just watching junk journal and planner videos on YouTube. Other than that I've recently watched Good Girls, Parenthood, Ozark, Jane the Virgin, Virgin River, Schitts Creek, Sweet Magnolias, Law & Order SVU, Criminal Minds, and Imposters.

All time fave is Parks and Recreation.

Favorite Crafts

Paper things. I like scraps and washi tape and glue and staples. I hope to start a collage/gluebook soon. Right now I am creating a collage zine of my travels. I just finished with it and send it off with some zine swaps. Just started working on ATCs. I am so in awe of people's creativity with them.

Likes/Dislikes

I love washi tape, stickers, stationery, notecards, ephemera, postcards, etc.

Other loves: coffee, coffee shops, travel, friends, getting lost and finding my way, pandas, sunshine, daisies, libraries, meeting new people, connecting people, inspirational quotes, zines, the color purple, mermaid colors and themes, collaging, writing letters, plants, postage stamps, etc etc

Dislike: Goth stuff, sci-fi, paranormal stuff, the color orange, bananas, religious things

Sending/Receiving

PLEASE message me if you haven't received a swap from me! I take a pic of all the mail going out for the day. I know the mail is slow lately, so I do ask for patience.

Recently reserved a P.O. Box and have updated my profile here. The old address will still work, but I prefer all mail going to the P.O. Box.

I RATE ALL SWAPS! And I hope you do as well. I rate them as I open the envelope or read the postcard. I give swappers the benefit of the doubt and will give about a month after mail date before I reach out about missing a swap.

Travel!!

Traveling is my favorite thing to do. I seriously want to go everywhere!

Avid traveler - both domestic and international. My bucket list is to visit all 7 continents and all 50 states. I have 2 continents left (Africa and Antarctica) and 7 states (Alaska, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, and Alabama).

Hi KristenCat,

Thanks so much for sending back my "Little Book of Texture" zine! How great to see it filled up with fabulous creative pages. This was a great ZMAC swap go-round.

Hi KristenCat, I got your Albuquerque travel zine for the Zeen Tag. It's the first stapled book-fold zine I've received. You did a great job. I love the mix of your photos, handwritten notes, washi tape, and drawings. Thank you so much. šŸ¤—
