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 kittens Merry and Pippin (we've had them for almost a year but they'll always be kittens to me!)

Likes

Right now I would really love little label/tag stickers or die cuts, I seem to always be running low on them!

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: Thanks for the great playing cards, all of them are new to me. I especially like the black one. I would never think to look at 7-11 or Staples for playing cards. Now I’m gonna have to check out those stores here! Thank you for using such pretty postage stamps, and for the postcards too. This was a great swap!

Comment: Thank you for your handmade summer postcard. Only one center flower sticker piece survived, but part of it was ripped off. I see two small glue dots on the right side of the postcard with nothing on top so probably two pieces fell off. I am playing detective here. I am sending all my handmade postcards in plastic sleeves now with a hole cut for postage.
Response: Ahh I'm sorry it got so damaged in the mail :( I'll have to investigate if postcards can be sent in plastic sleeves through Canada Post

Comment: Hi Katherine! Thanks for your nice letter and cute snail postcard. I enjoyed hearing about the postal workers you knew when you lived in a small town. I live near Ottawa in a small village. We used to have a post office in our village but now we have those outdoor mailboxes which took getting used to. They still know me though as I send a lot of mail like you! All the best! Cathy

Comment: Thanks for the postage bags! I'll keep them moving. These are my favorite to send and receive so I'm always open to stamp bag swaps if you get excess or need a few extras between swaps! Thank you!
