About Me

Hello, Kat in the house. I'm a foodie and I love cooking and trying out new recipes. That is one of my passions. I watch a lot of cooking shows and tv shows in general. Felix the cat is my favorite cartoon character. I like doing arts and crafts. I have dabbled with paper quilling and needle felting. I like to sew. I have made purses, keychains, blankets, clothes, pillowcases. In my spare time I like doing jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, going antique shopping, concerts, reading manga books and love to explore national parks and get my cancellation stamp! I enjoy 5D diamond painting. It is so much fun and relaxing. I love to curl up in the winter time with my cocoa and read a good book. Instagram is time consuming but a lot of fun to see how creative people are from all over the world!

I've gotten some amazing swaps from very kind and awesome people. I am grateful to have an outlet to show my creativity and have fun meeting people in the process. "In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you." (-Buddha). Please note that I like to recycle as much as possible. I make a lot of envies with clean paper bags, calendars, books, etc...so please don’t take offense if you get one. It’s important to recycle and as small is it may seem, I want to do my part. Happy swapping! P.S. Don't forget to have a good time.

I am honest and committed when I agree to do something. If you do not receive a swap from me then it got lost in the mail. Please let me know and I will gladly send another one. If you do receive my swap, would you be so kind as to rate me so that I know you received it.


Comment: WOW! I loved the envelope, what a great way to use maps. I have a bunch I've picked up a state visitors centers with he idea of making envelopes, now that I saw yours I am truly inspired. What a fantastic accordion pocket! The goodies are wonderful too, thanks for the Hermoine stickers too. Hugs!

Comment: What a wonderful collection of items! Thank you very much. Love your attention to details and it shows that you aim to please. You made this Swap special and I truly appreciate that. I almost did not get it though as the envelope you mailed it in was ripped open. The mail may have been too thin to use as an envelope. I always use clear tape to reinforce and protect my gifts, or card stock that is a bit more durable. Be careful. But keep on doing nice swaps like you do because they’re awesome!
Comment: Thank you for an adorable envie of goodies! Really loved the panda items:) And of course, the origami!!
Comment: What an absolutely adorably set of bunny envies! Thank you so much for joining my swap and for the lucky money <3
