Hi! My name is Christy. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and still call it home, Portland Oregon to be exact. I live in a sweet little 1892 farmhouse with my partner Aurora, the kiddo, our housemate and a Fiji mermaid! By trade I am an LMT and energy worker. I especially enjoy spending time in nature: hiking, picnicking, relaxing,exploring or any other type of outdoor adventure! Being creative is an important part of my life and I endeavor to create and craft whenever I get the chance. I love thrifting, wandering around antique stores, rewilding, classic pastimes, gardening, dark humor and the macabre. I LOVE MAIL ART!

I like them naked! Handmade or altered are my favorites! Store bought: vintage reprints, anatomical charts, black and white, burlesque, vintage botanicals, carnival, circus, sideshow oddities, religious iconography, the risqué, ossuary photos, vintage religiosas, vintage anatomicals, tarot, phrenology, palmistry or any other divination related images. As far as content, I would love a poem, short story from your life, facts you find interesting, books or songs you would like to recommend or you think I will find interesting. Right now I really enjoy learning the names of groups of things---Example: a ROMP of otters.
Earth tones, Browns, dark red/burgundy, gold, teal and robin's egg blue. These are faves, but don't limit yourself! Sparkly, iridescent and pearlescent are much loved! Pastels are my least favorite.
I enjoy all the seasons, but especially the Fall and the festivals and holidays included in those months. Dawn and twilight are my favorite times of day. Rain and Thunderstorms--The space between the thunder and the lightening! I like the edges of things---the places and spaces between them and the enticing areas where they merge together. Shadow/light, land/water, earth/sky, skin/air...
