About Me

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

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: Such a lovely ATC. I have it posted by my computer screen and have been enjoying it this weekend. The variety of media you included is just perfect - with a perfect message too! I also really enjoyed your note - what is indigo? I had a good chuckle at your dilemma as I shared it too.

Comment: THanks so much for this awesome flipbook! I really like how you used the brads as a way to tie up the book and I really enjoyed the flipping style with the middle as the centre which is unusual for most books I have received or made myself. I might try this next time! Take care

Comment: Thank you so much for the fab spooky goodies! (No I couldn't wait!) The card is so awesome, did you make it? Halloween is loosely celebrated in the UK, but I don't think it's anything like in your neck of the woods! I like to try and make a big deal of it by turning our kitchen into the Halloween equivalent of a Santa's grotto for the trick or treaters, but then hardly anyone actually turns up and I have to eat all that candy.. such a shame! XD
