About Me

If you like lame calligraphy and bad photography WELCOME you are on the right profile hahaha! this is me!

ABOUT YOU: I WILL RATE YOU ALWAYS, IF I DON'T RATE YOU THAT MEANS I DID NOT GET YOUR POSTCARD, CARD, ENVELOPE. I ADORE PEOPLE SO MY RATINGS ARE 100% LOVELY, I follow the old adage if you don't have anything positive to say, you better don't say anything. I'm all about positivism and love and wanting to be friends.

I'm a full time graphic designer, a transplant from Mexico, then England then here, California (I still have the mexican accent tho' lol) I have traveled a bit, mainly Europe and South America, my husband is from Sweden and my daughter has 3 citizenships (random comment lol). I design advertisements for cars for the main brands out there, the style is very corporate, however when I freelance I do a lot of handcrafted design (think like I create my own fonts) currently I also work for Punkpost.co) I also design cakes for weddings birthdays etc...¦ as often as time allows me I squeeze a customer or two, because I have to rent my own kitchen etc... it's kind of hectic.

I love to practice calligraphy on the side, rubber stamp carving and hand lettering, I enjoy craft blogs, I'm very laid back when it comes to relationships and friendships I don't expect too much but rather accept people for who they are and love them as they are, I think life is too short and should be lived in the here and now with respect acknowledging that time is the material life is made of.

I'm old as f#$k, I'm also a frugivore means that I only eat raw fruits and vegetables and some nuts no salt no sugar no processed food whatsoever, this I do most of the year, but once a month I give myself permission to eat some cooked food (think grilled corn, never meat or anything derived from animals) that sort of thing, but as I said before I am very respectful whatever you put into your mouth and body is your choice no mine to make and I RESPECT that! I also like to drink like a fish I do this once a month, I love champagne and margaritas, used to love piñas coladas but they have too much sugar!

I'm a firm believer in God but it doesn't bother me that you don't you are you and I am me and the world is big enough for both of us lol. I won't try to impose any ideas on you that you don't appreciate.

Favorite Music

You can find me listening to Small Town Heroes by the Hurray for the Riff Raff as you can find me listening to Neil Young, New Order, Lady Gaga, Mozart or Chopin, my taste in music varies, my schedule is super hectic so most of the time I would be listening to an Audio book or to some true crime Podcasts like Unfound, Sword & Scale and my most favorite is horror "Unexplained" podcast lol

Oh my word! My heart is full of thanks! I cant believe that you sent me these lovely note papers I wanted so badly. I didn't reply with my address because I felt terrible asking you to send me any since you had so few left. I should have replied still I suppose. And yet you took the time to send them to me! You are a sweetheart! Thank you so much!!! They will be collaged into some lovely art! <3 Rebecca
