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 and my cat, Pepper.

Likes

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!

Favorite Crafts

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: Thank you, Professor Charles, for the enlightening letter detailing your personal experiences with your students. The seal arrived intact, so the owl was particularly careful with this communication - especially after traveling such a great distance! Have a wonderful summer, and we'll touch base again in the fall.

Comment: Hi Katherine! That's my name, too, only with a C. I enjoyed reading your list of tips. Some good ones there like the one about tracking in coming mail. I often put my unanswered letters in a basket but that doesn't mean I get to them that quickly. And I totally agree about finding someone whose style matches yours. Not everyone does and not everyone clicks. Just the way it is. Thanks very much for the stickers in that cute and clever little holder. All the best! Cathy/Writercat
