I have a creative and crafty soul. I Love cultural crafts, altered arte, religious crafts and Dia De Los Muertos crafts.
Favorite hobbies: Uhh, crafts, drawing, traveling, eating, drinking, dancing, writing, art journaling, painting, collage, thrifting, altering and repurposing.
I am totally a city girl at heart. I LOVE love NYC. I consider it my home away from home and I get back there as often as I can. I also have a big place in my heart for Florence, Italy and Oaxaca, Mexico. A slice of heaven on earth. Yummmmmmmm.

I am not much into the country scene, or disney themes. (Don't get me wrong, I love me some Disneyland, but I prefer the decor stays there)
