Update

I send out my swaps early as I'm in Europe and sometimes it takes a while for mail to get overseas. If you haven't received my swap, please let me know and I'll be happy to resend.


About Me

I draw pretty faces. That's what I love and that's what I do.:) I also love dogs and cats and own several of them. :)

I'm vegetarian trying to be a vegan but I have some issues with cheese on occasion otherwise I'm dairy-free and gluten-free as well. I'm trying out some vegan cheese but I can get it only in one store in the city which is a little inconvenient. I'm avoiding soy products as well.


❤ My Kitties:

roadie murphy ajda

... ... ... Roadie ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Murphy ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Ajda ... ...

Murphy is the gray tabby and she's the only one of my pets that ever had a litter. She ran away for 3 days when in heat before I got her spayed. Roadie's the black one and her quirk is that she opens door. She just jumps on the door handle and opens it so we learned to lock the doors. She is also the Alpha Cat. :) These two are my oldest cats. They were born in 2001.

Ajda is the last arrival from the bunch and most spoiled. She's always sleeping on someone's lap or on the bed and she protests loudly, if you try to remove her from her resting spot.

bolha lolita

... ... ... ... ... ... Bolha ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Lolita ... ... ...

Bolha came in 2004, a couple of months after Charlie. Bolha means Flea in Slovene. I found her while I was walking my dog and almost stepped on her. She is an offspring of some stray cats my neighbor fed around the building we were living at. She was so small and had infected eyes so I took her home to nurse her to health and then put her up for adoption. That never happened. :) She is the one cat that loves dogs but despises other cats and humans.

Three years after that I found Lolita - Lola while we were catching feral cats for spay and neuter. I chased her down in an old abandoned locomotive. I fell in love with her instantly. She is second in command and is starting to challenge the alpha Roadie. :)

♛ the boyz

charlie gizmo

... ... ... Charlie ... ... ... ... ... ... Gizmo ... ... ...

Charlie came to us 3 years after Murphy and Roadie. He is deaf and was returned to a friend of mine when I was visiting her. He was so adorable that I brought him home. I refer to him as my gangsta cat because he's a destroyer. He chewed through so many electrical cables I stopped counting. He could also open the kitchen cabinets and push out the whole set of plates so he could take a nap in there. :) The plates did not survive. He also didn't manage to learn to do his business in the litter box so I'm always cleaning up after him. Luckily he usually does it in the bathroom so it's easier to clean.

Ajda and Gizmo are brother and sister. They were in foster care and I was supposed to babysit them over the weekend but they were sick and I agreed to keep them with me while I nurse them to health. Well, nobody was adopting and after 3 months I couldn't give them away anymore so they stayed.

♒ My pooches:

kika karma

... ... ... ... ... ... Kika ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Karma ... ... ... ... ... ...

Kika is the small pooch I adopted when she was 2 and a half years old. And I got Karma after my Kana died. She was adopted from a local shelter at the age of 8 months. And she also opens doors for herself just like the cat Roadie. :)

  • RIP 8. April 2000 - 27. November 2009

kana

... ... ... ... ... ... Kana ... ... ... ... ... ...

My first dog was a rottweiler bitch named Kana. She died a couple of years ago from kidney failure. When she was a year old I figured we'd get some cats. Well, actually I just wanted one but I ended up with two. :) They are girls named Roadie and Murphy.


Favorite Crafts

► Drawing and painting

► Art journaling

► making ATCs


ATCs

❤ I collect Hand-drawn and hand-painted ATC's and that is always amazing to get in the mail

❤ realistic or whimsical it doesn't matter but if you have your own style it's even better

ツ✔ themes: portraits, angels, fairies, mermaids, geisha, any whimsical person, fairytales, zetti, Marie Antoinette, pets in costumes, in Tim Burton style, in the style of Klimt, Steampunk (drawn or if the parts are like real parts of a watch or something - nothing collaged), peacocks, black panther, characters with wings that don't usually have them (like cats with wings, Pegasus, etc) and lots more

don't like erotica and gory stuff


Postcards

❤ prefer them naked a.k.a. stamped and written on by you as opposed to mailed in an envelope

ツ✔ themes: surreal, pin up girls, artistic (as in artistically taken photo or has art on it such as a drawing, cartoon etc), weird, fantasy, mythology, paranormal, scary, funny, vintage, cats (specially in funny or awkward poses not just a snapshot), rottweilers (my first dog was a rottweiler and she has passed in 2009), geisha, old Hollywood movie stars, steampunk, unicorns

don't care for touristy kind with multiple snapshots of random places, religious, nudity and gory stuff

don't care for sunsets, landscapes or flowers (unless they're weird looking and/or funny, unusual, exotic)


Wish List

1) Sakura Gel Pens - white, black

2) Watercolor pencils - skin color like very light salmon

3) Copic markers - any color

4) thick (280 gm or more) watercolor ATC blanks - white (2.5"x3.5")

5) Uni POSCA black pen

6) Large Address Labels (sticky)


Favorite Things

  • I love bright colors and my favorite is purple but I like pretty much everything from dark and mysterious to vintage to candy cotton pink :)

  • I love animals and my favorite animals are black panther and peacock, my favorite dog breed is a Rottweiler

  • pin up girls and old Hollywood postcards

  • I love reading. I read around 120 books a year now that I have Kindle for PC and lots of free books. :) My preferred genre is young adult, paranormal and dystopian. But my all time favorite book is Pride and prejudice from Jane Austen.

  • I also love painting and I teach an online class on how to draw whimsical girls. Check my blog for more info if you're interested. :)
