About Me

My name is Kathy.

I'm retired from sales and marketing in the newspaper industry. Before newspapers, I was in sales for International health and beauty aids and pharmaceuticals.

I've been married for 38 years. A year ago we rescued a cute little orange kitty from the cold. He is still with us today. Last month (January 2019)... we rescued another orange kitty from the cold. Hope the 2 boys eventually learn to get along in our small house.

I enjoy all things snail mail.... letter writing, postcrossing, greeting cards. I am just getting into paper crafting and card making. Love to visit art galleries and museums.

I spend lots of time researching family history and even joined some genealogical societies and attended some conventions.

Can spend hours browsing a book store or the stacks in a library or the book section in a thrift store or garage sale but I have a basement full of books I haven't read yet.

I find that my interests are ever evolving as I meet new people via pen pal and postcrossing sites and learn about all their interests. I usually continue to research and explore all the fun hobbies and crafts you tell me about.

Enjoy travel and in particular road trips to the southwestern United States visiting National Parks and Historic Sites.

I like to take in a live play especially 'fringe theatre'. I enjoy a good production of Shakespeare.

Favorite Music

The Eagles, Jazz and Broadway musicals.

Favorite Television

Currently enjoy The Walking Dead and shows like Survivor, Big Brother, Dancing with the Stars. Love light murder mystery shows like Castle or Bones or Murdoch Mysteries etc.

Likes

Rather fond of tea...especially chocolate orange but love to try new and different.

Always happy to receive stationery and postcards.... notecards, post its , stickers, washi and air mail stickers from your country. An unused postcard always welcome especially Lantern Press.

Postcrossing meetup cards.

Mail art decorated envelopes.

Word or phrases stickers.

rubber stamps

Love Christmas all year.

Looking for washi tape and postcards that have bicycles, anchors,typewriters,fountain pens,envelopes,mail related.

PLEASE NOTE: SEEDS FROM OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY ARE NOT ALLOWED BY CANADA CUSTOMS EVEN IF THEY ARE FACTORY SEALED.

Mail Service

I do not sign up for something I cannot complete. I will not 'flake'. I will resend if necessary. Please contact me with any concerns. I usually mail items at a post office. They assure me the mail is picked up Monday to Friday at 5:00 pm. I rate as soon as I receive a swap. I realize the mail is truly snail like so I give plenty of time for the mail to get here. Hope you will do the same.

Comment: Hello, Kathy, from Vancouver! Lovely to meet another Canadian via snail mail. RE: my letter-writing project - you don't have to go back. Just start counting now if you wish to have such a project. One of my guidelines was that it always had to be handwritten. Anything typed on a typewriter or printed out didn't count. I also had a tendency to not have two names in a row. So if I wrote to a Jane Smith on Tuesday, I was less inclined to write to the same lady until I wrote to someone else. So my list wasn't all one person. Very weird quirk and I couldn't understand why it irked me otherwise. Who do you plan to write to for #InCoWriMo? Cheers, D
Response: Hi D. Thanks for rating. Glad you got my card. Will start counting as of today. For #InCoWriMo I usually just pick names randomly from the people who post their addresses. I always start Day 1 with a letter to a penpal who got me back into letter writing. Always hand written.

Comment: Thank for your letter. I am only 32 and gave up on staying up for New Years possibly in my late teens or early 20's. I do it if I feel like it but if i feel like going to bed, I do.

Comment: Thank you so much for the card, it's absolutely gorgeous! And thank you for the lovely stickers and notebook as well. I'll put all my favorite Christmas recipes in there!! You are so right that sending actual cards seems to be dying out, but thanks to Swapbot I've got so many beautiful cards. They all hang on the doors in my living room. All the neighbour's on our block write eachother cards as well. So Anouk can play postman/woman this weekend. She loves that. Merry Christmas! Xx Monique ❤️🎄🤶🎅

It was delightful to get a Christmas card from you! (I do the same thing, actually, about sending non-Swap mail😁.) So fun to hear about the 70’s. They were great times for me too! Hope we will swap again sometime! We have so many common interests! Thank you for replying - you are a super swapper!!!! Karen
