About Me

"I have the worlds largest seashell collection. You may have seen it, I keep it spread out on beaches all over the world."...Steven Wright

"The world, as a rule, does not live on beaches..." F. Scott Fitzgerald

i love these quotes...the first because it expresses my love of shells and beaches...the second because i love the author and i am one of those who is not living on a beach..although i wish i did.... I have a home in a rural area north of houston south of dallas and east of austin.... lots of beautiful oaks and pines ...it has a lovely pond lined with water lilies…we are now living south of Houston near Galveston…but visit our country house occasionally… i have always enjoyed expressing myself in art and i taught art at the h.s. level... i've lived in several states and in panama for a few years...my friends, like my "shell collection," are scattered around the world... i prefer cool colors... especially teal At present i have one cat and the donkeys are living with a cousin in Louisiana … I miss Frankie my youngest donkey

••• I need to add that recently I failed to hit the "Save Ratings" bottom when rating a swap and my partner never got a rating while I thought I had rated her swap... This happened once before... So please if you do not receive a rating from me let me know ... I save all my swaps and will re-rate as soon as I find out... Thanks so much

Things I like: I would like to say do not feel you have to send extras...however, they are always used and appreciated. Sea glass Sand dollars Newspaper articles from countries other than my country...USA Small coins from other countries I've become interested in vintage faces and steampunk Like to use odd shaped brads Like all colors and hues Anything about Route 66 or OBX handmade atc envelopes What I like the most are all the atc's I receive ... enjoy them all and the creative expressions of the artists who send them... And I especially like moongypsy for being an angel in the animals a to z : u ... BevT just sent a gorgeous "puzzle piece" atc ... What a great host and angel!

Comment: Hello Kathryn! Wonderful to receive your work again. You must be SO organized--whenever you're my sending partner, the swap arrives almost instantly after partners are assigned--lucky me! Love your sweet white rabbit checking his pocketwatch and the little quote, too. Your accents are perfect, as is the rose background. Beautiful work--hope we get to swap together again soon!
