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: Thank you for the Awesome journal! I will start taking a better look at the insides of envelopes. There are some really great designs.
Response: That's true, Mostly blue for some reason. I wonder if it is to keep the contents private (less see through) Glad you like it :)

Comment: Food chunks are the best.
Response: Food packaging can be fun. Most of the time we don't even think that an artist created it.

Comment: Hi Teagen! Cute ice cream cone pc! My favorite flavor would be plain vanilla (you can dress it up so many ways) or orange sherbet. I've never tried anything made with soy or coconut milk. Cute stickers on the card. Thanks so much & Take care, Judy
Response: I'm glad it got there! Ben & Jerry's has a dairy free line now that I think is almond based. The one I tried was really good. Too cold for ice cream right now, unless it's on top of a hot brownie...

Comment: Thank you for the Alphonse Mucha postcard (I love his artwork) and for sharing what you're reading now. It sounds like an interesting book!
Response: I didn't know who that was but I looked it up and he has a very distinct style. I'm sure I've seen it and didn't know.
Fullsteampowell rated for Chunk O Cardboard - Feb 2018 on Feb 10, 2018
Comment: My husband was with me when I picked up the card... Me: “It’s a... deer. In a donut.... From a vegan shop... in Portland.” Him: “Because of course it’s in Portland.” We both love Portland, but the hipster jokes are still pretty accurate.
Response: You're right it is very Portland. At one time a friend of mine was getting soup (Vegan) delivered by bicycle in a reusable mason jar. Probably by anarchists.
