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

Comment: Kathryn, Thank you so much for the gorgeous butterflies and botanicals skinny card. This is lovely paper that you used and I like all the extra added butterflies, leaves and berries and the little touches of glitter. Just an overall beautiful composition! Good luck with your move to a new house and I look forward to swapping with you again soon!

Comment: Thanks for the nice playing cards. Only one was a duplicate of what I already have. I want a pool but the season here is barely three months so it's hard to justify the expense.

Comment: Kathryn, this is AH-MAZING! I was worried that there might not be enough information (let alone pictures) to make this a good swap theme, but clearly there is! This poor woman...always a refugee. And her hard life shows on her face...in ways that we soft American women can't understand. My favorite part of the whole art page is the gorgeous medallion that makes your background...I adore the intricacy of Middle Eastern artwork, their tiles, and their use of color! A+ for you, my dear friend!
Response: The best part of swapping with you is the wonderful reviews you give ... you must be a writer because you express yourself so eloquently... you words are so heartening ... and very much appreciated...thank you!
