50 years ago today, this natural amphitheater farmland turned into one of the most historic concert events ever.

My Dad loved listening to the Woodstock recording. I grew up on it. He taught me to love it. However, I haven't ever been able to identify why that event was so cool. Why did it hold everyone's attention? Why was my dad so enamored by it? Why didn't he just attend, if he loved the music so much? 

In June, I had trainings at camps in the area & had...

Yes, I waited to post this on a day when we were having severe weather. I am that person who gets a kick out of the moment when "Blame it on the Rain" plays just as the sprinkles begin, or when the lightning flashes and "The Thunder Rolls" starts playing. I love those kind of moments! 

To create The KC Curiosity Passport, I have to go scout out locations to place the letterboxes that correspond with my mini-mosaics. Today, I happened to arrive at the public...

A monument to helium? Oh Dearest, the Helium Time Columns are so much more!

I have so many close friends (or family of friends) who are in life-threatening medical situations right now. 5 cancer related, 2 genetic disorders - 1 waiting for a transplant, 1 just received a transplant. You know my thoughts on cancer. My hatred continues. However, this is the first time I have come face-to-face with the juxtaposition of transplant prayers. We pray for organs to be available before it is too late for my loved one...which means it IS too...

"Why are you so vocal about the Oklahoma teacher walkout?" has been asked of me multiple times in the last 2 weeks. You are right, on the surface, it may seem a little strange that a Missouri-girl, non-teacher, would be so vocal about the walkout in Oklahoma. However, my husband & I were some of the first to "walkout" on Oklahoma schools. In the Spring of 2003, my husband was finishing up his undergrad degrees at Oklahoma State University (I had already gra...

If you have been wondering:

  1. Where have you been? 

  2. Why did you stop posting about More Than The Middle Podcast ?

  3. Why did you stop making episodes of Everyday Adventures Podcast?

  4. Why haven't you made any more videos?

Well,...

The Kansas City area has become quite the hub of coffee. As a former barista & coffee shop manager, I love the smell, the taste, the people, the community...well, I love the entirety of a good coffee shop. Let's be real though, enough chit chat! Let's get to the coffee talk! [This list is not in a particular order of preference. Each location has a special place in my coffeeshop-lovin' heart.]

Holy podcasts, Batman! We are already on Ep 9?!

On April 15, 2017, Amy & I were invited to a state-wide instameet hosted by TravelKS.com in the adorable town of Lindsborg, KS. We requested the freedom to also record for the podcast...for you! We think each of our guests give us a unique perspective of why #NoPlaceLikeKS is a really fitting hashtag for the whole state!

On a side note, as this was our first time recording on the road, we learned a lot of what n...

Why “the bimbo of the arts” is one of my favourite things

          Hey guys, Amy here. If we don’t know one another, I make up one half of the X37Adventures duo. I currently live in London currently (hence why I haven’t been able to meet up with you lovely people) I am working on my Masters’ Degree in Art and Design History. In my readings for class and essays I have stumbled upon some interesting articles and bits...

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON HANDMADE IN KC BLOG

My name is Alexis, co-owner of X37Adventures, along with Amy, who currently resides in London, while completing her master’s degree. [Go, Amy! Go!] We are brand new members of Handmade in KC.

In one part of my life, I am an artist. In another part of my life, I am a professional team builder. Both lenses contribute to my view of the world around me. 


When Carolyn, from HangUps Jewelry, talked to me about X37Adventures...
