About Me

Move is complete, I am all set up in my new place and will be back into swapping soon :)

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, my cat Pepper, and my two kittens Merry and Pippin (we've had them for almost a year but they'll always be kittens to me!)

Likes

Right now I would really love little label/tag stickers or die cuts, I seem to always be running low on them!

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!

Stamps

I am pretty new to the stamp collecting game. Currently I am trying to get at least one stamp from as many countries as possible. I also collect the following themes:

  • music (especially instruments and composers, but anything music related is great!)

  • handicrafts (cross stitching, quilting, sewing, whatever!)

  • Canada geese

  • Canadian stamps

  • Stamps featuring Canada that aren't Canadian stamps

  • magic, especially Harry Potter

I also love stamps that feature Christmas, flowers, animals, and food!

Favorite Crafts

My favourite thing to swap on swapbot is pocket letters (full sized or mini) - I'll always be willing to do a private swap for them, just shoot me a message!

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: Great clusters - love the shaker accent and that flower with the embroidery thread through the petals is wonderful (is that a die-cut)?
Response: Yes - it's one of the Spellbinders stitchable dies! They take a lot of time but look so good, so it's worth it!
