Hello swap-bot buddies! My name is Holly and I'm an artist, vegan, hiker, gardener and nature-lover.
I sell handmade soap at craft fairs with linocut/hand painted labels. I love handmade items made with great care.
I live in an apartment with two kitties and my partner.
I'm working toward finding more time for my art and to practice self-love and care.
When sending me items, I'd appreciate it if you keep in mind my dietary preferences: vegan and gluten free. Thanks!
Nice to meet you!
I'm an avid reader and always have a cup of peppermint tea at hand! I love inspirational books and fiction. Please suggest books for me to read!
