About Me

what I pledged

I am a 30 year old from Spain living in Utah. I love the glorious mountains around here and the majestic trees, they are big and I love them, ah so beautiful. Talking trees, I absolutely love trees, pictures of trees, walking by trees... anything with trees.

I am growing a vegetable garden for the first time and I am really enjoying it, especially since I am already harvesting some vegetables. I can't wait to start canning them and giving away to friends and loved ones some of it. Canning can be pretty creative and fun!

I have three children, the twins, a boy and a girl that are 6 years old and a little toddler whom I absolutely adore.

I don't smoke or drink alcohol and I seriously dislike pornography and that type of stuff. So I would never be sending anything containing nudity and I would not like to receive it either.

Life is so much fun. I love to take photographs and more than anything I could spend endless hours looking at photographs, especially the old vintage ladies kids type and modern emotive photographs. I also like some of the fashion ones.

I like to practice yoga and long walks in the forest if possible, I love to hike and to camp, and being outdoors. I really enjoy listening to the sounds of breeze, birds and crickets.

I love animals in all their sphere. They are gorgeous creatures. I have a black cat and he is very sweet, his name is Haiku which means Poem in Japanese. Talking japanese I absolutely adore japanese and chinese stuff of any kind.

I love to read, when I have the time.

My favorite flowers are Peonies they are just absolutely beautiful! Sunflowers are really nice too. Lavender is a lifetime favorite of mine.

I love so much the ATCs I am making that lately I am thinking that I should make two at a time, one to send and other to keep... seriously, I've traded ATCs in swaps that I really wanted to keep for myself. Oh well, I hope that the people that get them like them as much as I do. Most and above all I want to receive what you like to create, I don't want you to create according to my likes and dislikes I want you to be yourself! And that is what I love to see, people's true art. So have fun!
