About Me

I love reading, cooking, making art, writing and learning new things. I'm passionate about social justice and equality and taking care of our dear planet and all who live here.

Being Earth friendly is important to me so I have a preference for re-cycled, second hand and handmade stuff.

I'm a long time vegan. I don't eat or wear any animals or use stuff made from leather, wool, feathers, bees wax etc. No meat, dairy, honey. If you're not sure feel free to ask.

I have a black and white tuxedo cat named Wednesday Caddams.

I love vintage decor especially 1940's & 1950's. I love Mexican art and crafts especially vintage.

Fave colors: Green and Pink.

Extras are nice but I'm happiest if you really put thought and heart into the swap it self.

Favorite Books

Wish list

Comment: Thanks for the fun squirrel with a letter creation! I like the use of the pen, the brush strokes on the squirrel's tail and the spattering on the sky, as well as the subject matter of course :) The card was also adorable.
Response: I'm glad you like it! You were the squirrel lover on my list. The letter just appeared in her hands, just a stroke of inspiration.

Comment: What an amazing theme and what a great sockmonster. It is adopted by my older son and lives in the cuddle corner of his room now. I think he loves it because he normally forget to put his socks away there and as far as I know sockmonster love worn socks a lot. So he has a good home now. Thank you for that much creativity and joy. You definitely deserve more than just one heart. ❀❀❀❀
Response: I'm so glad you like the package and that sock monster has a good home now. It was a fun theme. I want a cuddle corner in my room!
