About Me

My name is Kathy.

I'm retired from sales and marketing in the newspaper industry. Before newspapers, I was in sales for International health and beauty aids and pharmaceuticals.

I've been married for 40 years. We rescued a cute little orange kitty from the cold a couple of years ago. He is still with us today. January 2019... we rescued another orange kitty from the cold. Hope the 2 boys eventually learn to get along in our small house.

I enjoy all things snail mail.... letter writing, postcrossing, greeting cards. I am just getting into paper crafting and card making. Love to visit art galleries and museums.

I spend lots of time researching family history and even joined some genealogical societies and attended some conventions.

Can spend hours browsing a book store or the stacks in a library or the book section in a thrift store or garage sale but I have a basement full of books I haven't read yet.

I find that my interests are ever evolving as I meet new people via pen pal and postcrossing sites and learn about all their interests. I usually continue to research and explore all the fun hobbies and crafts you tell me about.

Enjoy travel and in particular road trips to the southwestern United States visiting National Parks and Historic Sites.

I like to take in a live play especially 'fringe theatre'. I enjoy a good production of Shakespeare.

Favorite Music

The Eagles, Jazz and Broadway musicals.

Favorite Television

Currently enjoy The Walking Dead and shows like Survivor, Big Brother, Dancing with the Stars. Love light murder mystery shows like Castle or Bones or Murdoch Mysteries etc.

Likes

Rather fond of tea...especially chocolate orange but love to try new and different.

Always happy to receive stationery and postcards.... notecards, post its , stickers, washi and air mail stickers from your country. An unused postcard always welcome especially Lantern Press.

Postcrossing meetup cards.

Mail art decorated envelopes.

Word or phrases stickers.

rubber stamps

Love Christmas all year.

Looking for washi tape,stickers,notecards and postcards that have bicycles, anchors,typewriters,fountain pens,envelopes,mail related and images of wine glasses and wine bottles.

PLEASE NOTE: SEEDS FROM OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY ARE NOT ALLOWED BY CANADA CUSTOMS EVEN IF THEY ARE FACTORY SEALED.

Mail Service

I do not sign up for something I cannot complete. I will not 'flake'. I will resend if necessary. Please contact me with any concerns. I usually mail items at a post office. They assure me the mail is picked up Monday to Friday at 5:00 pm. I rate all swaps as soon as possible. I realize the mail is truly snail like so I give plenty of time for the mail to get here. Hope you will do the same.

Comment: Love the card, thank you! I love Christmas in July too and love watching the Hallmark movies - so fun! And the Amish postcard is wonderful, I read about Bird-in-Hand and wondered about what it looks like :)

Comment: Wow! The PC you sent finally arrived. It had a large yellow postal sticker dated 6/28/21 on the bottom that said, "Unable to forward /for review CO77". Strange indeed. The city of Launceston looks beautiful. Your in-laws must have a wonderful PC collection from their travels. I've never been to Australia either but would like to visit one day.
Response: Wow is right. No idea what that means. Glad it arrived.

Comment: Thank you for the amazing watercolor tags and the paper goodies! I also started more with abstract. I found it somehow not quite as intimidating! I'm so glad to hear that this got your interesting going a bit :) I have been practicing and just become more and more fascinated with them. How cool that you went to U of W. Small world! I really love being so close to the U.S. and it's worked out well for my online business stuff. I miss it! Thank you again for the beautiful swap!

Comment: Thank you for my Whistler card. Funnily enough, over the weekend I was thinking about tracking down an old friend (the only other person I know to have spent time in whistler) I think this card is a sign that I must do it!

Comment: Hey there Kathy! So great to get a swap from you! Thanks so much for the Smoky the bear PC! I haven't ever seen one of these PC's before. They had them to buy on Postcardbliss.com to buy. But they were all sold out & fast too! I know it's first come first serve. But when they announce what PC's they have, I never quite it to be first serve, Ha! So, Like you, I love Lantern press PC's! Unlike you, I have seen my fair share of bears. More than care to see too. We live atop a mountain & we have a huge wooded area out back of our house. And, we have a field of wild strawberries, that the bears & deer love. We try to make sure we get our fair share of strawberries, so I can make Jam from them. But 2 summers ago, while picking strawberries, there was a huge black bear near by, that I didn't know was there. All of a sudden I heard crashing noises & looked up just in time to see the black bear running at me. OMG, Did I ever scream bloody murder! My DH heard me & came running out with his shot gun. He fired a few shots & that bear stopped dead in his tracks. Thank god above! I'll tell you what, I keep that shot gun with me anymore when picking strawberries. Clearly that bear didn't want me there & I made sure to stay in the house the rest of the day! But talk about a pounding heart! Mine was for sure!
Response: Where you live sounds amazing but wow... bear encounters like that are not on my bucket list! Stay safe!!

Comment: KatKit, I loved your postcard collage! Especially love the poststamps!. The postman was jealous of the beautiful man on the stamp so he scribbled it lol.
Response: I'm not really a stamp collector but I do enjoy the pictures. . I see more and more of these scrbbles on those beautiful pieces of art. So sad. I feel sorry for the actual stamp collectors. Thanks for the hearts. Glad the cards made it without getting lost along the way.

Comment: Hi Kathy! Thank you for the beautiful New Zealand pc! That beach looks amazing and how wonderful that you received your in-laws pc collection from their travels! Looks like we might swap again at some point, as my hubby went to an estate sale and the gal sold him about 1,000 overseas pcs for $10! I felt so loved that he thought of getting them for me - yipppeee! See ya at the mailbox again at some point! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Oh Wow! What a great find at the estate sale. Isn't it fun to flip through a stack of cards from far away places. Thanks for rating and special thanks for the heart. Hope we swap again soon.

Thanks so much for the lovely letter in response to my Cut & Paste swap! I really enjoyed reading about your travels to my state. I agree--it is an amazing place! If you've never been to Jerome, or Bisbee, those are two other places I'd recommend next time you come. Opposite ends of the state, but both very cool little artsy towns. I am so jealous of your trip to NYC where you saw Branagh in Macbeth! I'm sure it was amazing! NYC is top of my list for places to go next. Hopefully we'll all be able to travel again soon.

More commentary arising from the Tabasco Hostel postcard: White Sands is one of the my favorite places! But sadly most of my relatives have left New Mexico so I won't have easy excuses to visit any more. And I'd never actually been to Las Vegas NM (unless I was super young and don't remember) although I had a roommate from there at a short workshop I attended in high school.

I've been to Windsor once as a tourist when we first moved to Michigan (my first time to Canada!) and I've run along the riverfront during the Detroit International Half Marathon. The crowds in Windsor are very supportive.

Thanks for the fun chatty postcard!

Thank you so much of the "resend"!!! The note card you used is beautiful, and the stamp on the envie, OH MY! I love it! Thank you as well for the little extras tucked inside! You are so appreciated!

It was delightful to get a Christmas card from you! (I do the same thing, actually, about sending non-Swap mail😁.) So fun to hear about the 70’s. They were great times for me too! Hope we will swap again sometime! We have so many common interests! Thank you for replying - you are a super swapper!!!! Karen
