About Me

Hi Friends!

My name is Maria, a lifelong girl from California. I am a freight dispatch duchess by day and a weekend crafty queen! I am a mom to an incredible 13 year old girl, and 2 kitty fur babes.

There is nothing more fulfilling to create something with your hands, I truly believe handmade is best made. I love so many different crafts, and there is always something new to try! My steady loves are papercrafting and soapmaking. I sell my soap at local festivals and will be upgrading my website again soon. I have also dabbled in candle carving, needle felting, knitting/crocheting, fluid acrylic painting and my lastest, painting mandalas on rocks and canvas!

I have an unhealthy obsession for anything:

Disneyland U.S.A. Alice in Wonderland Beauty and the Beast Harry Potter Creepy-Cute Kawaii Tarot card decks Twinkling lights Stained glass Sharpie pens Flip-flops Vinyl Tsum tsums Funko Pop!

I am a creature of habit-there are very few "new" tv shows or movies I watch-I prefer my old standbys, Disney animated movies, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Willy Wonka, Practical Magic, Princess Bride are on rotation every week at my house, seriously! I am also re-watching Eureka, Warehouse 13, Grimm and Once Upon A Time. X-Files is in my queue!

A lover of books, journals and notebooks, I used to penpal when I was in middle school, but life became so topsy-turvy in high school and beyond. Now that I am older and settled, I miss having that exciting feeling of going to the mailbox! I hope to meet lots of new friends here!

Comment: Thank you for your message. It was lovely to get something so interesting and comprehensive. The subject sounds like such a fascinating character, I'm not surprised you found her compelling. I love an intriguing historical figure.

Comment: Thank you for your large letter California card. I don't think I have a large letter from Cali yet so I am thrilled. Infact after checking, out of my 21 california cards, I do not have any that arte 'just' california so this card is really a welcome addition to my collection
Comment: Maria, I came home to your beautiful Paris themed postcard, love it, thanks so much. AnnaL.
