About Me

Hello swappers, I'm Katie! I'm 37 years old and I live in northern Virginia, near Washington D.C. I love all things creative and crafty and I usually spend my free time knitting, sewing, quilting, cooking, baking, practicing calligraphy or attempting to draw. I also enjoy long bike rides and walks with my dog. And snail mail of course! I've always been drawn to pretty paper and cards, but postcrossing is what got me into washi tapes, rubber stamps and all things stationery. I'm excited to do some swapping and maybe find a few pen pals!

What Makes Me Happy

  • Forest or wilderness themes
  • Botanical/floral themes
  • Camping/hiking
  • Bears, raccoons, squirrels, dogs, cats, squid/octopus, whales, owls, llamas/alpacas, moths, bees
  • Houseplants
  • Pepin Press
  • Rifle Paper Co.
  • Totoro
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • No Face and the radish spirit
  • Pineapples, peaches and lemons
  • Coffee
  • Mushrooms
  • Geometric patterns
  • Soft, muted, "dusty" colors
  • Neutral colors
  • Brown kraft paper
  • Watercolor
  • Feathers
  • Letterbox / postbox / anything snail mail related
  • Doors, windows, gates
  • Christmas
  • Skulls / skeletons
  • Vintage illustrations (plants, animals, scientific type illustrations)
  • Anything strange, unusual or unexpected
  • All types of antiques and old things!

I'm not really a fan of...

  • Bright, neon, or primary colors
  • Disney

I'm interested in...

  • non-touristy postcards
  • anything stationery...letter sets, note cards, memo pads, sticky notes, stickers, washi tape, die cuts, envelopes, interesting paper clips, tags and labels
  • pressed flowers
  • book pages and magazine cut outs
  • vintage paper and ephemera
  • printed paper napkins and doilies
  • unused US stamps
  • rubber stamps
  • tea--chai, oolong, roobios and herbal teas

I prefer not to receive yarn or fabric right now, just because I have so much already!

Favorite Books

Two of my favorites are Good Omens and The Book of Lost Things. But I mostly read non fiction covering all kinds of subjects, from nutrition and food politics to philosophy and supernatural phenomena.

Favorite Movies

My favorite movies are True Romance, Amadeus, Labyrinth, the Big Lebowski, comedies with Adam Sandler, and any John Wayne or Clint Eastwood western. Also weird and thought provoking movies like 2001 and Donnie Darko.

Favorite Television

  • American Dad
  • Archer
  • Bob's Burgers
  • Westworld
  • The Goldbergs
  • Fresh Prince
  • Seinfeld
  • Simpsons
  • Futurama
