A little bit about me

If you have not been rated, PLEASE message me. So far, I've not received at least 6 swaps that were mailed from as far back as October of last year. If you haven't been rated, please message me with the name of the swap, your name and address, and the date you mailed it. I need this information so I can go to the post office and make a complaint. Thank you!

Welcome Home, Persephone!! We missed you!

Hi! I'm Prairie Kittin. (Yes, that is my real name. I was named after my aunt Prairie and my grandmother Katherine "Kitty").

Not my circus. Not my monkeys. ... Oh, wait. The flying ones? Yeah, those are mine.

Did you know that in Finland and Sweden, witches come out on Easter?

If you want to make me happy, send me witches, trolls and creepy stuff. (Old school creepy... I don't do zombies, murderous clowns or chuckie dolls. No excessive blood, either. I like skulls, witches, trolls, skeletons, spiders, tombstones, ravens, foggy graveyard pictures, things like that.) Tim Burton is my idol.

I adore the Steampunk genre. Not so much the dressing-up in "costume" part, although I do have the prerequisite hat and goggles. I enjoy Steamy ATCs, postcards, pictures. Things like that.

I have several grandchildren, most of whom are teenagers, except for 6 year old Zaiyah. She just started kindergarten. 3 of the grandkids are in high school and 1 is in college at Western Washington University.

I am a letterboxer. My trail name on Atlasquest.com is "Witch Kittin".

I ride my own motorcycle, but there are times I ride behind my boyfriend on his Harley. There's nothing like wrapping your arms around the man you adore and flying into the wind!

We have 3 rescued cats (all black, as it happened). Mousy, Britomartis and Prince. Mousy was "rehomed" to us because her former parents got divorced and her mom moved in with friends who didn't want cats. Britomartis was surviving in a junkyard, but had no water or food. She was almost dead when I found her. Prince's owners simply moved away and abandoned him!
UPDATE: We have another kitten and he's a tabby!! I didn't know cats came in other colors besides black! ;-)

We have also adopted 3 dogs. Sadie is a Golden Pei. She's probably 4 or 5 years old, but she acts like a puppy. The other two are pit bulls, Sookie and Alcide. Sookie is about 60 pounds. Alcide has probably about 10 pounds on her, so we're talking 60 and 70 pound lap dogs! (They take up the whole bed, too, leaving me a little 12 inch space on the edge to sleep in!)

I live with 2 ring-necked doves, who laugh and coo. I had to separate them because when they turned a year old, they started to fight and Luna almost killed Belle.

So, I have 4 cats, 3 dogs, and 2 birds. And some fish. :-)

Oh, and I also live with a large hairy biker dude named Steve. He is my rock.

Favorite Crafts

I do mail art and postcards, mostly. I used to do art journals, but got burned by a swapper who didn't pass my journal on, so I don't do those anymore. I also used to do ATCs, but not so much anymore.

I am a member of International Union of Mail Artists in good standing since 2013.

I enjoy doing Zentangle and zentangle inspired artwork. (Doodles that look like zentangle).

I've also carved my share of rubber stamps and made a few logbooks to go with them. ;-)
I'm Witch Kittin on atlasquest


I am a collector. I admit it. Is there a 12-step program for that? I collect:

Witches with human-colored faces (NO green faces! Shudder!);

Trolls (the cutesy little dolls with the wild hair, as well as the Scandinavian kind);


Keys (old fashioned skeleton keys. I don't know why, but I am totally fascinated by them);

Rocks, stones, fossils (I was a geology major in college);

Cast iron anything;

Fawns (especially antique ones).

So... a cast iron troll dressed as a witch, carrying a skeleton key in one hand and a trilobite in the other, with a fawn curled up at her feet would be absolutely perfect. ;-)



Outlander! I've read all the books and am hooked on the TV show. You had me at "Sassenach"!!

I don't have a favorite color, but I prefer earth tones and muted colors, although occasionally a deep rose color takes my breath away!

Looking at my colored pencils, there are some colors that are almost worn away to nothing. Dark green, dark purple and dark brown, in particular. So, I guess maybe those might be considered my favorites!

Animals of all kinds. I could no more harm an animal than cut off my own arm.

Tarot-related anything.

Anything nature-oriented, especially rocks.

Old herbals; geology or paleontology texts.

Anything Pagan or witchy.

Rubber stamping stuff.


Ruby and Hammerhead

This is Ruby. She's my favorite witch of all time!



I do NOT support Susan G. Komen. I am a breast cancer survivor, and I support other charities, just not that one.

No Christian stuff. Please do NOT send me anything christian. I have been physically, mentally and emotionally hurt by members of that religion, and I would prefer not to have any reminders.

I would appreciate it if you didn't send anything religious, political or gory.

That's about it. I like just about anything else I enjoy all kinds of crafts, especially mail art. I like to make postcards and decorate envelopes. I like to think my art puts a smile on someone's face in it's journey to your mailbox.

Recipes and stuff

Steve and I are both diabetic and he has congestive heart failure. I'm always looking for good nutritious meals that are 1) Low in sugar; 2)Low in carbs; 3) Low in sodium (salt); 4)Contains no mammal meat (no beef, pork, lamb, etc. Chicken and turkey are okay); 5)Little to no soy, so no tofu. (I'm allergic). I have no bottom teeth, so I can't eat nuts, crackers, or anything that isn't soft. I eat fish, seafood and poultry for the protein.

Yeah.... dinner is a real challenge around here! If you have any recipes that maybe we can eat, please include them in any swaps. They will be more than welcome!!


I recently was tested and have discovered that I am a supertaster. Not as "super" as it sounds. It has made me a picky eater because I am oversensitive to tastes. One of the things that doesn't taste as good to me as to other people is tea. I don't drink tea. I've tried it, and I just don't like it. I have boxes and boxes of herbal teas that I've drank 1 cup of, and the rest of the box languishes in my pantry. Please don't send me any more tea. I'm swimming in the stuff and I just don't like it! Thanks! I have a K-Cup coffee maker. I love flavored coffees, and I'll gladly try any of those. Just no more tea, Please!

EDIT: Occasionally I'll enter a "Tea and ...... " swap. Usually because I like the "And....." part. If you are my swap partner in one of these, I'll accept the tea and give it to my neighbor. ... Unless it's a really special kind, then I might drink it myself.

Post Office

Recently, I have received a couple of packages that the post office have messed up. They are always so polite about it... LOL!! ... and put the mail inside a plastic bag with a most sincere apology. Here is an example:


I have no idea what they spilled on it. There was nothing in the package that was liquid.

I'm not all that happy with the post office lately! If this continues, I may end up switching to UPS or FedEx.

I seem to be having a problem receiving international mail, especially from Germany. I'm not sure what's going on.

A note about

I mark a swap as "sent" when I put it in the outgoing box. If it's later in the day, after the mail has run, it won't be postmarked until the mailman picks it up the next day.
If it's on a weekend day, it may not get postmarked until the following Monday.
Ditto the holidays. If I put it in the outgoing box, and the mailman doesn't come get it until after the holiday, then it won't be postmarked until after the holiday.
Please keep this in mind if you see a postmark that is a day or two after the date I marked it as 'sent'.

Response: Oh, I'm so glad you liked it! Making scents for other people is so tricky! By the way, everything in that is completely food grade and safe. So, if you want to annoint your head, lips, and heart, it's okay if you lick your lips! LOL!

grandmaroro rated for AAAMA~ Decorated envelope on Mar 4, 2018
Comment: WOW ---Thank you for sharing your art with me. Not only did you make a lovely envelope, but the ATC and coaster were fantastic. I love zentangles, but I didn't get very good at it. Now, my failing vision makes for some pretty "odd" looking compositions. So, thank you so very much for sharing. A dozen hearts to you.
Response: Glad you liked it! Hope to see you in more AAAMA swaps!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful picture and quote.
Response: You're welcome.

Response: You're welcome! Thanks for the compliment!
Comment: These are so much fun! Thanks for the 2 in one pkg. Thanks too for clearly labeling the swap! So very important with so many of these out there! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You're welcome. I thought I'd save postage, since both swaps were going to the same place. :-)

Profile Goddess Quotes

PrairieKittin on Mar 4, 2018:


And you who seek to know Me, know that the seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the Mystery: for if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without.

For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am That which is attained at the end of desire.
