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...

Comment: Hi Elaine! I'm sorry for the late rating - I've had some challenges at home lately, resulting in a pile of unopened mail :( Your coffee themed card is adorable - I love the little face in the corner! The flower card is very pretty also - thank you! I'd place bets on who has a messier work space - I guarantee you'd lose, lol!
Response: Sorry, no doubt I'd win in the messy art space contest. It was fun to make those. Hope your challenges are less so. Maybe we'll swap again!

I can't thank you enough for everything. I will cherish it all forever and I can't wait to add the bird extras into my scrapbook! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! And thank you for the kind words. I wish I could give you more hearts! Sending hugs! Addie<3
Response: Addie, I'm so glad you liked what I sent. I figured one never has too much material for a scrapbook and the search was fun. I hope we meet in a swap again.

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful Oranges ATC and your sweet note! I used to live in Kansas (Lindsborg- about an hour north of Wichita), so I have been to the Nelson Atkins a few times!
Response: You're very welcome for the oranges. They were fun to do. I don't get to the Nelson as often as I'd like to. Doing ATCs now, I bet I'll get a whole different perspective of things,
