About Me

I'm a retired biological research associate (fancy title for bottom rung jobs), I've loved the subject of biology since high school. I live outside the KC,MO area but have lived and traveled to a lot of places in the US. I love art and have been drawing and painting when I could but besides a seminar here and there have had no formal training. I have time now to explore and I am! I am awed by the patterns in nature and nature itself. I try to keep my brain engaged by taking one class a semester at my local two year college. Classes are free for seniors and I only take classes outside of the subjects I had pursuing my degree. It's fun and shows the younger students it's never too old to learn! And I love ATC's...and other paper art.

Comment: Thank you so much, Elaine, for the wonderful Twinchies you made! I love them. Thank you too, for the nice chatty note, I really appreciate that you took the time to do that - I just got home from visiting my son post surgery, and your package was most welcome. He is okay, but I'm exhausted.
Response: You're welcome for the twinchies. I'm glad they brightened your day a bit. By now I hope you're rested and that your son is healing well and quickly.

Response: I hope you didn't choke on flying gnomes. One of the envelope says open now or something like that and the other should say wait for later.Just in case you want to open one now. This is such a fun swap!

Comment: Hi Elaine! I loved reading your letter first off and the index card is very nice! I love the vintage kitchen feel of it! I love that you shared that the idea came from your aunt’s kitchen growing up. Thank you for the letter, index card, and awesome stickers that I know you chose based on reading my profile! I love ALL of it! If you want to do a private swap of some kind let me know.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the card. I wondered if it was too personal but doing it brought back so many nice memories that I decided to share. I'm glad you like it all. I'm in a time crunch (you know, that thing called life) but would love to do a personal trade in the future.

Comment: Thank you for the Thank you so much for the wonderful happy mail!! What a great surprise. I put up my Advent ATC & Grayson's surprise envie to open in Dec. (we can't wait) & I adore the Kliban cat stickers. They are so cute! They will go into my sticker collection & I will never use them b/c I am a sticker hoarder - LOL! Thank you again for everything. It was an extra special swap ♥
Response: You're very welcome. I had a lot of fun putting that together for you. I know what you mean about being a sticker hoarder. A new addiction at an old age! Thank you again for the kind words. I think I might be overdoing the tape a bit and will try to find a happy medium.
