+++ About Me

I live with my rad family in the high desert of Northern Nevada. We have a bunny named Thumper, a kitten named Eric, and I have a trucker mouth.

I love to crochet, hand-sew and embroider things, quilt, needle-felt, nalbind, book-make, send mailart, make cut & paste collages, create ATCs, write 'zines, and recycle all the things. When I'm not making I like to spend time with my family, thrifting, walking, baking, meditating, playing board games, and helping people in our community experiencing homelessness.

### Dislikes / Allergies

I'm not so much into angels or anything biblical, and cherubs kind of creep me out.

I have Celiac's Disease, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and ##many severe food allergies##, we're talking serious shit here. While I appreciate your good intentions, PLEASE, Please, please do not send me any food, candy, make-up or bath/body products unless I am in a swap with you that specifically requires it, in which case I will give it to my child I am a fragile snowflake. Tea is okay to send, as long as it is individually packaged.

Comment: ♥ I got the second sending. Thank you. Well worth the wait. I am very impressed with the ATC, but sorry you had to make it twice. I also like the card and confetti. Thanks again.

Comment: Thank you, Bean, for the woven and sewn leopard postcard, the cool sticker (which I interpret as a gay brown power symbol) and the delicious stamps (especially the fir cones, toleware, Tiffany and coffeepot).
