About Me

Hi! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm Katharina from Germany. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช You can call me Kate though.

I'm 30 and live with my boyfriend in a very small town. In fact I moved in with him only recently. ๐Ÿ’‘๐Ÿก

We work entirely too much, but I would love to get a chance to let my creative juices flow again.

Favorite Books

๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“– I still adore the Harry Potter series and I love the Rivers of London series too. I've also recently read A Streetcat named Bob and enjoyed it very much.

Others: - Little Women - Food Wars (manga) - The Little House series

Still to read: - The Invisible Library series - Warrior Cats - and lots of others I don't remember at the moment ๐Ÿ˜…

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy sewing and I love to crochet. I also used to zentangle and paper craft - I usually made postcards as I love sending and receiving mail. โœ‰

I recently picked something back up that I used to love doing: crochet. And I'm debating whether to try my hand at embroidery. ๐Ÿ’ฎ

A craft that I tried for the first time only this past September is making ATCs. And I can honestly say that I love it! โœ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿ–โœ‚๏ธ I love all the freedom and creativity of it all and the seemingly endless possibilities of making them.

I'd love to receive ATCs about any of my likes for profile-based swaps. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Favorite Music

I love music of most kinds. ๐ŸŽถ

I used to sing in a choir and still enjoy singing by myself at home or in the car.

Just to name a few of favourites: - Celtic Woman - Ed Sheeran - Rosenstolz - Die Toten Hosen - Intros from (childhood) series and movies - Sunrise Avenue - etc.

Favorite Television

  • Forever (Still so so so sad it ended after only one season. ๐Ÿ˜ญ)
  • Criminal Minds
  • Criminal Minds Beyond Borders
  • Greys Anatomy
  • Outlander
  • The Walking Dead (for the stories - the zombies not so much)

Anime: (movies and series) - Sword Art Online (everything) - Danmachi - Your Name - The Anonymous Noise - A Silent Voice - Record of Lodoss War - possible Record of Grancrest War - Gate - Madmoiselle Hanamura #1 - Highschool DxD - Guardian of the Spirit - K-on

About swapping

IMPORTANT! I have very bad arachnophobia! So please don't send anything with spiders!

Like to swap:

  • touristy postcards
  • animal postcards

  • aurora borealis / aurora australis

  • aerial view

  • photos

  • letters

  • souvenirs

  • candy

  • tea

  • Also open to new ideas. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Animals I absolutely adore: - cats - dogs - platypus - sloths - otters / beavers - prairie dogs and groundhogs - hippos - meerkats - pandas - red pandas - katta lemurs - kangaroos and wallabys - wombats - koalas - penguins - polar bears - quokkas - owls - squirrels


I also love travelling and receiving anything travel-related. Would love to go to Canada, Japan, Iceland and New Zealand in the future.

Favourite colours are: ๐ŸŒˆ - the night sky (dark blue with twinkling stars) - the universe or underwater (purples, greens, blues) - rainbows - dark blue - dark red - dark purple - dark green - pink (if it's not too much) - and just generally colours complementing each other

Pokemon! Anything pokemon! Gotta catch 'em all! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I really love all the cutesy-type pokemon, also Eevee and all its evolutions. Gotta cuddle 'em all! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

I discovered 2 new passions recently:

  • pressed pennies
  • 5D diamond painting

I love Halloween and Christmas! ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽ…

And my favourite seasons are spring ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒฑ, fall ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽƒ, and winter. โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ†


Please notice:

I'm in Germany which means I'm about 9 hours ahead of the swap-bot website and mail is picked up in the morning where I live. I will mark a swap as sent once I dropped it in the mailbox for pickup. But this means that my swaps will almost always be postmarked at least a day later than my "sent date" here. Just FYI!
