About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Kathryn but I have always gone by Kelli. So if you think you haven't received your swap from Kelli, check for the Kathryn address label and you just might find me. To my swap-mates: I am going through treatment for metastatic (advanced) breast cancer and thyroid cancer right now. Please be patient with my getting your ratings out to you. I have cut back on many of my swapping activities as some days I just feel like crap. Thanks for your understanding. CANCER SUCKS!!!

Aside from all that, I am a pediatric occupational therapist, artist, rubber stamp and beadaholic, breast cancer survivor since 2003. I live in my 1936 Cape Cod house in Rochester, NY with my 4 Wonder Cats. I just love to "make stuff" and have been doing so pretty much since I found out I had hands.

Likes: the colors pink, purple, blue, and green, cats, fish, handmade paper, beads, anything with a hand or hands on it, swirls and spirals, suns, anything with a face on it, teeny tiny things that can hide in teeny tiny niches

Favorite Music

80's punk and new wave, alternative/progressive. Depeche Mode, The Cure, B52s, Erasure, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie, Iggy Pop, Michelle Shocked, Heather Nova, Tori Amos, Mat Kearney, New Order, Chemical Brothers, Angelo Badalamenti, Lucinda Williams.

Favorite Movies

Dead Poets Society, The Shawshank Redemption, To Kill a Mockingbird, American Beauty, Donnie Darko, Life is Beautiful, Crash, Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me

Favorite Television

The Simpsons, Six Feet Under, Family Guy, Twin Peaks, House, Saturday Night Live, Brothers and Sisters, How it's Made (I just love the science channel!!) and once in awhile some trashy, stupid reality shows like Wife Swap and My Super Sweet 16!

Favorite Crafts

Beads, rubber stamps, handmade paper, and anything you can make with one or all of the above ingredients ;) You can never have too many beads! They are just too delicious! I enjoy religious art of all faiths.

Favorite kind of ATCs

My favorite kind of ATCs are the ones you can tell were made by a person, and reflect some aspect of the artist's personality. I'm not a big fan of the ones that look like they could be machine-made scrapbook embellishments. You know what I mean.

How I rate

I will give 5s to people who are running late but COMMMUNICATE WITH ME that they will be late, for whatever reason. I don't want to be the art police, as it takes away from the fun, and like I often say, life is what happens when you're making other plans. So if your swap to me is late, I will give you a 5 as long as you meet the other criteria for the swap AND you have communicated with me ahead of time that yours will be late. I speak this from experience on both ends of the swapping scene!

Currently reading.....

Currently reading Bret Lott's "A Song I Knew by Heart". Fave authors are Harper Lee, Wally Lamb, John Steinbeck, Margaret Atwood, Joyce Carol Oates, and Jodi Picoult. Have a reading suggestion for me? Give me a shout!

Comment: Hi Kelli, thank you so much for making me the happy, bright shiny ATCs. They are really cheerful. I was just noticing today how I gravitate to anything that is mixtures of bright colors, and your ATCs definitely affirm that! Its cool too how you did the embroidery, I had never thought of doing that! I hope your snow goes away soon and you see signs of spring popping up and more daylight, yes! Thanks again and hugs your way!

Hey Kelli, I hope you are feeling goodness and peace today and giving that cancer a good ass kicking!! I hope this little note finds you in a place where your treatments are working well and you are seeing hope and a bright horizon! May you make some lovely art for yourself today that will give you joy. Art for art's sake!
