Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
To travel places I would never be able to go while meeting people and experiencing events I would only wonder at otherwise. Spreading beauty, joy, curiosity, or just mild hmmm.

I have to say sorry for not replying with return art to those who have graced me there works. I did enjoy it and will send some out soon now. I have just surfaced from a tour as a substitute mom. My niece has been in the hospital in Juneau for the last 4 weeks. Leaving me with the court placing me as guardian of her two littles. ACK. I have to admit to be way over my head in all this. (sigh). I thought I was brimming with energy but....I have found that a 5yr old and an 18 mo. old just suck it all out and keep on trucking. lol Well. I was releived of my duties just a few days ago. I promplty slept 24 hours I think. Feeling much more myself. Now to cleen my house and find all the art supplies I had to hide. wow, I really thought my little one bedroom apartment with a view was perfect but it really got cramped there for a while. I took some great pictures of kids. But no artwork got done except in my head. lol. Thanks for the welcome Kit ( and thanks to every one else. Heyla Test Tower, and Waky Stuff haven't forgotten you.

Welcome to our wonderful group, Frances; you will love it! I lived in Ketchikan in the late 70's. I lived on Deer St. (if I remember correctly). It was my "adventure". I worked for Alaska Native Health Services and also for Ketchikan General Hospital. I loved waking up, looking down the hill, and seeing all the boats/ships on the Tongass. Loved the float planes. Great memories.

Boy, do I know what you mean about kids and about H1N1. I am just getting better after a week with that nasty bug! Ugh! Lucky she didn't move back in? Too funny! I have the same scenario right now with my son. He is over here quite a bit though - it's okay - I miss him anyway. Very nice to meet you - glad you liked the 4th Dimension. Let's trade some Art!
