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 live in a rural area north of houston south of dallas and east of austin.... lots of beautiful oaks and pines ...i once had a lovely pond lined with water lillies ...that pond is almost empty now because of the drought...(I am happy to report that all the ponds are now full including the big pond but the water lillies are gone forever) 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 dog, a stray who has come to live here named Blue and a cat also a stray name either George, Lt. Fuzz, or KittyKitty ... oh and three donkeys ...Sam Houston, Jack Kennedy, and Frankie (fdr)...and two horses...tom aka stanley,,, and brownie...

••• 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

wish list

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... Appreciate raters who comment and find at least one nice thing to say... 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!

a little note

we live in a very rural area...I don't guess at postage required...instead I take all mail to a post office...one post office is 25 miles away...one is 30 miles away and another is 40 miles away...I hand all the mail to the post office person to weigh and check width...they determined what postage is necessary...I have had 3 people tell me they had to pay overdue postage and I promptly sent the amount..and my sincere apologies...I know how inconvenient it can be...so if any of you get mail from me marked overdue postage...please let me know...special thanks to all the creative clever and very generous swap partners I have been lucky enough to swap with...so much talent here...

Comment: Kathryn, these are gorgeous! I'm so impressed with your results. I hope mine turn out this nicely. It's almost like seaweed, isn't it? I love the flower centers that turned blue--a lovely touch of color. Now, there's no need to create more pages for me; I'm very happy with what I received and I'll use the 'cut' pieces for pockets in my journal instead of pages. I'm completing mine this coming weekend--fingers crossed!
Response: I enjoyed so much as I told imacdavis93 I ordered more alum I tried the w-m store but no one knew what I wanted...I will look for some nice flowers next...cant wait to see what you've done...thanks so much for this

Comment: Thank you for my Roses & Pearls. Just lovely. And the charms come in handy. I also miss the rat pack era. They recently changed the name of the airport 😿 Now it's called: Burbank-Hollywood Airport (Boring!)
Response: so funny but just today someone on tv made reference to bob hope airport! I read why it was changed and of course it was about $$$ ...so said ...they also mention a john wayne airport...i'd never heard that one...anyway thank you so much for this very kind rating...
