All About Kat

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

Discount USA postage for sale, $26 for $30 in stamps or $41 for $50 in stamps, with other amounts available as well, just ask ~ 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!~☾

★ I love being outdoors & anything to do with nature ★ I don't like flowers, but I love ferns, mosses, greenery, and trees ★ I adore astronomy and cosmology ★ I'm really frugal and love dumpster diving & freebie hunting! ★ I have two kitties named Cloudy (mine) and Orpheus (my hubby's) ★ Wine is my favorite drink! ★ I make my own teas, tinctures, and herbal products ★ I love fermenting foods and drinks! ★ I'm into Shamanism and psychedelia ★ I am obsessed with the Atomic Age style ★ Ethnobotany is one of my passions ★ Astral projection and lucid dreaming are something I focus on ★ I ♥ vintage postcards! ★ I am an atheist and only worship nature as a higher power ★

The only thing I'm offended by is religion !

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~

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Postcard and great stamps! The lyrics make me think of how we can always reach outside of ourselves for answers. But they're often already in us. Happy Swapping Always---Ramya

Thank you for the lovely splattered nail polish ATC! It's a pretty abstract. Thanks also for the beauty sample and for using such great old postage stamps on the envelope. You brightened up my mailbox! :)

slamophile on Apr 6, 2017:

Thank you so much for the stamps - I remember some of them, but, most of those old gummed stamps, I have never seen. Amazing. Love them all. Thanks again - Great bargain.

HannahEnilk on Dec 19, 2016:
