About Me

FYI - I live rurally enough that it is not uncommon for our mail to not move for a day or two due to high snowfall - I try to get everything in the mailbox extra early to compensate but if the postmark and sent date differ (or if your swap takes a few extra days to make it to me!), this is probably why!

Hi! My name is Katherine, I'm a card maker and sender from the Canadian prairies. I love getting happy mail in my mailbox and brightening up other people's days with my cards. I'm a music and band teacher by day, and when I'm not carding I love spending time with my partner, my cat Pepper, and my two new kittens Merry and Pippin (they were born early May and we got them at the end of June!)

Likes

Right now I would really love little label/tag stickers or die cuts, I seem to always be running low on them!

Favourite Colours: I love shades of blue and green, and silver!

I love cards (and postage!) featuring:

  • animals (especially cats!), except bugs

  • flowers/florals

  • puns and jokes

  • nature scenes

  • coffee/tea

  • music

Handmade cards are more than welcome!

I am a big Harry Potter fan and a proud Slytherin :)

I LOVE Pusheen (my cat looks very much like him) - I am currently collecting the Pusheen postcards so I would be extra happy to receive one of those :)

I have only recently started collecting stamps, so I love receiving cancelled stamps as part of packages. If they don't suit my style, I'll use them to pass on and trade with others!

I have no food allergies. I enjoy most kinds of foods, snacks, and tea/coffee, except anything MINT flavoured! Earl Grey is my favourite kind of tea.

Dislikes

My biggest dislike is mint flavoured tea/candy. Just not my flavour!

Stamps

I am pretty new to the stamp collecting game. Currently I am trying to get at least one stamp from as many countries as possible. I also collect the following themes:

  • music (especially instruments and composers, but anything music related is great!)

  • handicrafts (cross stitching, quilting, sewing, whatever!)

  • Canada geese

  • Canadian stamps

  • Stamps featuring Canada that aren't Canadian stamps

  • magic, especially Harry Potter

I also love stamps that feature Christmas, flowers, animals, and food!

Favorite Crafts

My favourite thing to swap on swapbot is pocket letters (full sized or mini) - I'll always be willing to do a private swap for them, just shoot me a message!

Card making is the craft I spend the most time on. I love trying out new techniques - lately I have been fully in on the gel press craze and have been trying it out a ton. I have a cricut that I love to make unique paper cuts. I love sharing my cards and learning from other card makers as well!

I also cross stitch - lately I have been trying to incorporate that into my cards more!

Comment: Thanks for The Beauty of Mepkin Abbey postcard. We are too similar. I have also taken a break from reading. I am currently reading Hotel Rwanda. I also have too many crafting supplies. I find myself donating to nursing homes and daycares. Good luck with your two goals.

Comment: I received your page today. Thank you. Could you please put what swap you are sending as I’m in a few 🙂 Thank you as well for all the wonderful extras ❤️ Sorry only just found your note under the tag 💐. Yes when I send these I have to pay extra too rather annoying as they are flat envelopes
