About Me

Hi There! My name is Kat and I live with my family (husband and 2 boys 8 & 5) on a small farm. We have 7 ducks, 3 geese, 1 rooster, 1 cow and a huge garden.
I love sending and receiving mail. I love the art of snail mail and just making someone's day.

I love to draw and love sending my fun drawings to people. I have a degree in art and love to craft. My art degree specialized in photography and sculpture. I don't take too many pictures anymore. As far as crafting, I like to quilt when I can, I used to scrap book all the time until I had kids. Recently I took up drawing using tutorial videos. As well as doing watercolors.

I love animals (especially ducks). I listen to all kinds of music, The Beatles are my favorite band. I love musicals, they are my go to cheer me up kind of movie. I collect stickers. I use stickers for my Passion Planner book. Its an amazing planner that has also turned into a journal/ creative outlet. Please no teacher stickers, unless they're book characters. I like to share those with my kids. Washi tape is always appreciated!

I would love stationery! If you have some you aren't using or something you'd love to share, I will put it to good use. I cant believe how hard it is to find now. I honestly love receiving any mail. I love to learn about other people. Writing letters is my self-care time. I've just recently started collecting stamps, learning about Philately.
I'm not a religious person. I like to share postcards/cards I get with my boys too, so please keep things appropriate. I look forward to hearing from you.

Favorite Music

The Beatles, Devil Makes Three,Gomez Cake, Dave Mathews Band, David Bowie, The Doors, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Coldplay, Beck, Taylor Swift, ABBA, Band of horses, Some country music....mostly 90s stuff

Favorite Movies

Across the Universe, Guys & Dolls, Kiss Me Kate, Hello Dolly, Jurassic Park, Star Wars series, romantic comedies

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts, multi media art, drawing, coloring, watercolor, sewing, sticker collecting washi tape Philately(stamps)

Comment: Thank you! It is so lovely! I wish I would have thought to scratch while the paint was wet, my mixture of paint and soap took FOREVER to dry.
Response: So glad you liked it! Yeah I was ready to do that but saw the wet technique. Thanks for the heart!

To me, Turnpike Troubadors is like, the perfect band - one of those groups where you can listen to every song on their albums. I like The Housefire and Good Lord Lorrie the most. Goodbye Normal Street is their best album in my opinion. They are kinda country, yes, but I think they are worth it! Hope you enjoy!
