Hi, my name is Eleanor.
Me in a nutshell: Artsy-litsy, kinda flitsy, quasi-bohemian. Semi-gothy, slightly crunchy, completely quirky, nature-based, contemplative mom.
Semi-retired from the publishing industry, I now work part-time at a bookstore where I love planning and hosting author events. Crazy customers and eccentric writers are part of my everyday life. I spend the weekends with my husband who is a chef and an artist. We enjoy going to ethnic grocery stores and to thrift stores together. I mostly 'thrift' for art supplies, books, cookbooks on afternoon tea and New Orleans cuisine, framed subversive cross-stitch sayings, bohemian outfits, and unique odds-and-ends.
Swap-bot inspires me to make art every day!
