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.

Comment: Thanks so much for the Minizine and newsy note. I actually DID read The Buddha in the Attic. I keep track of my reading, too. I have a blog that I started in 2008, mainly because, as a teacher, I needed to remember all the good (and not-so-good) books to encourage kids to read. Now I keep track of lots of program-related books for my job at the library. But, I love keeping track of the just-for-me books I read, too I've read 68 novels so far this year....
Response: That is so impressive. My top was 58 books in 2013, the year I started my list. I do about half fiction half non. I'll finish #29 for this year tonight.

Comment: Teagen, thank you for the minizine and the nice letter! I laughed at the part about the dog in the santa hat that was also a spectator! I wish I could have seen the jump rope group with the light-up ropes; I bet that looked great! I liked the minizine and the way you put it together using facing pages as a single page. And I hadn't thought of using colored paper either; I guess I'm locked to thinking inside the box, so I'll have to work on being a bit more creative like that. Great topic too! Thanks for a great swap!
Response: I'm glad you are happy with this swap. The facing pages give a bit more space and I have to leave a little border since my printer doesn't go all the way to the edge. Challenges help with inventiveness :)

Comment: Thanks so much for sharing your holidays with me. :) I love the idea of adopting a turkey, too!
Response: I'm so glad! It's a fun tradition. One year we went to the closest Farm Sanctuary (near LA) for their special Turkey celebration. They gave the Turkeys salad and pumpkin pie, they loved that pie! Everyone cheered!
