About Me

Hello!

My name is Kay, and I am so excited to start entering my first swaps! :) I originally found this website from a Postcrossing forum comment, I am hoping to be able to send out more happy mail this way.

I live in the desert with my husband and our rescue pup. I am a homebody and I love to watch movies, read, play video games, and to make paper crafts and mail to share with others! I love collecting stickers and washi tape and sending them out to people who will find joy in them like me!

I really enjoy paper crafts of all kinds, but here are the pastimes that I participate in the most:

  • Postcrossing
  • Collage + Abstract Art

Comment: Hi! Thank you for sending me more than 1 pc! Unfortunately the rain smudged my address and the content of your postcard almost entirely, including transferring the ink to the Italian PC. But, I could still read your note and save the remaining 2 PCs. thank you so much!

Comment: Hi Kay and thank you for your lost. I'd not heard of the majority of the songs in your list so that was a new and fun listen for me :) I now can't get Easy Lover out of my mind though! I'd not heard that in such a long time! Take care, Deb

Comment: Hi Kay:-) The Hallmark vintage stationary is very pretty. It sounds like you had a busy weekend moving, unpacking, etc. Owen Wilson is a great actor; Midnight In Paris is a fun movie:-). Can you imagine living in Paris during that Era? So many great artists and writers! I hope you are getting settled in and have an awesome weekend!
