About Me

Hello! It's nice to meet you!

I live in Michigan with my husband and a small herd of cats. I am a voracious reader and a manic crafter. I will not stop until I can do all of the things! When I don't have my nose in a book, I am usually either knitting, binding homemade journals, or drawing.

I also get super excited about antiquing, which means that sometimes I will send out an antique or vintage postcard from my collection. If you receive one from me that looks a little dated, please know that it's because I love you an extra lot!

~ List of Loves ~
  • Anything kooky, bizarre, creepy, crazy or macabre
  • Mythology and folklore
  • Dollhouses
  • Vintage, antique or anachronistic things
  • Tarot cards! (I collect tarot decks)
  • Taxidermy
  • Tacky things. Seriously. Send me your tacky stuff.
  • The color green

Favorite Books

I have a huge collection of books, and picking my favorites is no easy task. But if I were forced to choose, by a gang of very literary pirates or something, these are probably the ones that make my top ten list:

  • Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake
  • City of Saints and Madmen by Jeff VanDermeer
  • In the Night Garden / City of Coin and Spice by Catherynne Valente
  • Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
  • Swaplandia! by Karen Russell
  • Outer Dark by Cormac McCarthy
  • His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
  • The Sandman by Neil Gaiman

Comment: Respected Lady Ladybird, It is with wriggling and many-limbed delight that I accept your invitation to the 43rd annual Bug Ball at le Grand Stump. The invitation card is exquisite: what delicacy of line your grasping pincers have achieved! Thank you, and may the Spring sunshine warm your beautiful spotted back, Lightfoot Swallowtail

Comment: Hi Melissa! You have the neatest handwriting! I thought it was typed when I first saw it. I wish I can write like that! I love your holiday! I have very challenging days sometimea and to get my negativity out, I started a "venting" journal. I like your holiday much better! :)

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful PC! I find it very interesting that the different shapes used to cover blemishes stood for something. Very interesting. :)
