About Me

NOTE: On 7/30 my address is changing and mail is being forwarded. If I don't rate you right away please give me time as mail can take a bit.

Hi There! My name is Kat and I live with my family (husband and 2 boys 8 & 6) on a small farm.

I love sending and receiving mail. I love the art of snail mail and just making someone's day.

I love to draw and love sending my fun drawings to people. I have a degree in art and love to craft. My art degree specialized in photography and sculpture. I don't take too many pictures anymore. As far as crafting, I like to quilt when I can, I used to scrap book all the time until I had kids. Recently I took up drawing using tutorial videos. As well as doing watercolors.

I love animals (especially ducks). I listen to all kinds of music, The Beatles are my favorite band. I love musicals, they are my go to cheer me up kind of movie. I collect stickers. I use stickers for my Passion Planner book, but please no planner stickers(unless they are for like cleaning) I dont really use them. Its an amazing planner that has also turned into a journal/ creative outlet. Please no teacher stickers, unless they're book characters. I like to share those with my kids. Washi tape is always appreciated!

I would love stationery! If you have some you aren't using or something you'd love to share, I will put it to good use. I cant believe how hard it is to find now. I honestly love receiving any mail. I love to learn about other people. Writing letters is my self-care time. I've just recently started collecting stamps, learning about Philately.
I'm not a religious person. I like to share postcards/cards I get with my boys too, so please keep things appropriate. I look forward to hearing from you.

Favorite Music

The Beatles, Devil Makes Three,Gomez Cake, Dave Mathews Band, David Bowie, The Doors, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Coldplay, Beck, Taylor Swift, ABBA, Band of horses, Some country music....mostly 90s stuff

Favorite Movies

Comment: It sounds like you had a very busy weekend. he piggies sound adorable! Last year around this time I hatched 18 chicks (of 24 eggs) and man they were so fun to raise! I think if I didn't live in he suburbs and rent I would have kept the hens- they were so sociable! I'm glad your kiddo got to play in the game even after an injury- that perseverance is important- water that seed!

Comment: Hi Kat! Love the pc and I understand about not having a pc of your town but that is awesome that this place is not too far away! How wonderful that you now live near family - I miss my boys so much - one in CO and one in NE (he is not sure how long his company will keep him there, they like to move them around every 9 to 12 months, or so he has been told). I get folks have to go where the jobs are but having family close would be wonderful! So how did you get into teaching culinary? Are the HS kids interested in learning how to cook? Thankfully my hubby is a really good cook and he taught our boys - they will never starve! LOL! Thanks again for the fun share! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

To me, Turnpike Troubadors is like, the perfect band - one of those groups where you can listen to every song on their albums. I like The Housefire and Good Lord Lorrie the most. Goodbye Normal Street is their best album in my opinion. They are kinda country, yes, but I think they are worth it! Hope you enjoy!

OMIGOD, I JUST HEARD DEVIL MAKES THREE FOR THE FIRST TIME LAST WEEK, AND FELL IN LOVE. Do you like Turnpike Troubadors?!?!!?!
