About Me

WOO HOO on Tuesday 19th May I started to receive mail from the USA.

Because of covid-19 it's taking about 4 weeks to get snail mail to the US from New Zealand .

I'm a Christian.

Hi as I live in New Zealand NO plant material or food except coffee or herbal tea as they are processed so seem to be OK can be sent but send any thing else and it will be stopped at Border Control then burnt.

I'm a slightly older woman who is sadly a widow . I live with my black & white cat called Polly as she is polydactyl in other words she has thumbs.

I enjoy all music but my favourite is jazz.

I'm a Christmas gal. I go mad with Christmas decorations in all the main areas inside my home & one of the bedrooms. I LOVE Christmas & all it stands for.

I enjoy reading poetry have done so all my life all lengths & genre and writing Haiku. I have tried writing poetry but it is sooo bad.

I work with preschool children & love it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Favorite Crafts

I knit, crochet, spin also a little tatting.

I also scrapbook.

I love making postcards and mini books/zines mini pocket books from paper bags.

POSTCARDS - I like post cards to be sent as a post card so no envelope please unless it is a requirement of the swap. I'm happy in fact I LOVE it if it's handmade. On postcards - lighthouse, the sea, birds, lighthouse, flowers, your home town, lighthouse, mermaids, butterfly, a photo you have taken. My care children love looking at photos of cats. Did I mention lighthouses or mermen& mermaids ?

Also a good copy of a vintage photo or vintage postcard.

But no adds please.

PHOTOS - Take loads of photos on my different cameras. I only use my camera on my phone for stuff I don't want to keep long term or I'm sending to family or friends or for work as with snap chat or such like.

Favorite Colours

Blue, purple, pinks on there own or as a marble swirl of 2 or 3 of them.

Blue-green marble wave type swirls colours of the sea.

Christmas colours red, green & gold.

Favorite Television

Comment: Hello there Kathleen! I'll tell you what, I had a heck of a time finding what swap, you had sent me. As you forgot to put name of swap & group name. But no worries, I did find you & thank you for the great Botanicals note cards with envelopes and Esp. the coloring pages. So, I truly love what you sent me! Thank you so much for joining my swap! I hope to see you in more of them. Take care & keep safe. PS. Have you ever done the Adult coloring postcards before?
Response: I'm SO sorry I left the swap name of my note but very happy you enjoyed the contents of the envelope I sent you. The way I colour my post cards is I rubber stamp onto water colour paper then paint them with water colour paints. Thanks for rating with a heart :-)

Thank you so much for the picture postcard! You didn't have to, but its cute!

PeliKat on Jul 13, 2020:

Kathleen, here is your haiku, which I based on your words from your profile:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Title: FAVORITE COLOURS

Blue, purple, and pink

Blue-green marble wave-type swirls

Colours of the sea.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I could leave a picture with this, but I haven't mastered that skill yet.

Best wishes to you! Haiku for You from PeliKat

MexiMidge on Jul 10, 2020:

Haiku for you:

Iโ€™m not Christian but / I respect your decision / to find peace from High.

Hi AFK. This is for Poetry Zine Swap - Send by Email. I messed up. I forgot to change "3" to "6" partners before assigning people. I changed it to "6" after assigning. So we can only rate 3 people. If I could, I would rate you a 5 heart. Your haiku zine is a joy. Calming. Haikus are my favourite style of poetry. Your own photos are a nice touch. Your Easter portrait is a hoot. :) Thank you for creating your lovely zine and sharing it.
