About Evan

My profile was last updated on 2/18/20. I am ever evolving so should my profile be.

My name is EVAN (I am a girl). I live in Los Angeles with “T” my husband, Lumos (my chihuahua service dog). I am an AUTISTIC actress, artist (see link to shop above) and writer. My husband is a writer, director, he also creates TTRPG games. We live a pretty simple pseudo-minimalistic life. Not a lot of excess, but full of things we love. My personal style is very Mori-girl (look it up, it’s adorable) and whimsy.

T and I got married on a Friday the 13th, so we celebrate our marriage EVERY Friday the 13th. Because celebrating once a year is BORING!! Also, I am looking for POSTCARDS for my husband. From our wedding day I have written him a postcard every single Friday. He keeps them in a box that I gave him as a wedding present. I write and tell him how much I appreciate him and his hard work, the highlights of our week, and how much I love him. I would love to send him postcards in things he enjoys, so if you have any of these themes I would greatly appreciate it - DRAGONS, SPACE EXPLORATION, BOSTON anything(especially the bruins), VIDEO GAMES, MOVIES (specifically movie posters and black and white photo type) and FOOD (he is a huge foodie). Maybe also some romantic specific cards would be nice.

1/12/2020 I have been declared legally blind. Reason: unknown. There are more tests on the way. I woke up about two weeks ago and could not see anything further than about 10 feet. Being autistic - my senses are all now in overdrive. I have had a meltdown nearly everyday, from overwhelm and sensory issues. Thank you everyone for your kind words and thoughts. I am trying really hard to work thru this in the best way for me. I want to write and create art as long as I can and as much as I can, incase it gets worse.

I am very grateful for everything I receive. Thank you for taking the time to create and send me something. I look forward to checking my mailbox everyday. I leave feedback promptly, so if you have not received feedback I have not received your items yet. I also do not check to see if I am getting feedback, as I am not here to gain ratings. So if you have not received something from me that I have marked sent, please let me know. It may have got lost.

BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS

I REALLY LOVE BOOKS!! I am an avid reader - I read 2-4 books a week. Thank goodness for Kindle Unlimited. I do own a kindle with over 150 titles on it. It is one of my prized possessions. Amazon gift cards are always welcome here. I rarely read paper books any more, the reader is easier on sets/at work. I also love to listen to audio books.

The books I tend to choose:

  • Adventure - Redwall series, Subtle Knife series, Pirates, Peter Pan
  • Speculative/Science Fiction - Cherie Priest, Hunger Games, Enders Game,
  • Magic/Fantasy - Harry Potter, Narina, the Magicians, Neil Gaiman
  • Mythology - Selkies, Mermaids, Dragons, Scottish Lore, Norse lore, Percy Jackson
  • Whimsy - Alice in wonderland, Mark McGuire books, Gail Carriger, Stardust
  • Historical Fiction - Jennifer Connelly, Downton Abby, Edwardian and Victorian Fiction
  • Classics - Jane Austin, Shakespeare, Emily Bronte, Roald Dahl
  • Romance (Sometimes) - Danielle Steele, John Green, Nicolas Sparks
  • Non-Fiction - Comedy (Ellen, Augusta Boroughs, Sederis) and Books about Film and Theater including biographies of movie/tv stars

    🚫 I DO NOT read horror or crime/legal drama books

PETER PAN

My WHOLE LIFE pretty much revolves around PETER PAN. When I was a little girl I struggled to make friends - I was a bit awkward, and we moved a lot. The book became my best friend (I have read it over 100 times to date) and that fondness grew and grew.

THINGS I LOVE:

  • THE BOOK, the play, and the retellings.
  • Movies - All of them! The live action (2003) and Hook are faves
  • Kisses - I have a jar I collect them in! I have Thimbles (Tchotchke and Vintage mostly) and Acorns (I love glass and felted ones)
  • Victorian era niceties
  • Pirate and nautical things including Pirate ships, mermaids, booty and rum.
  • Fairies - not just Tink, all types - like Lady Cottington’s and Amy Brown
  • Any Peter Pan handmade art or crafts
  • If it makes me think of Peter Pan it is a winner!!

PLAYING CARDS:

I started collecting playing cards! I am trying to build a FUN deck of playing cards with cards from all different decks. Mainly I am looking for the novelty kind with pictures or illustrations on them (Poker size 2.5X3.5”).

🚫Casino cards or musty smelling vintage playing cards

Here is what I have so far

Poker Deck (2.5 X 3.5”):

♠️ - A, 2, 3, 4, J, Q, K

♣️ - A, 3, J, K

♥️ - 3, J, Q, K

♦️ - 4, 5, Q, K

Joker:

Bridge Deck (2.2.5 X 3.5”):

♠️ - 3, 6, 9, Q

♣️ - A0, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8. 10

♥️ - A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, J

♦️ - A, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, J, K

Joker x 1

Please Do Not Send:

🚫PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME PACKAGES WHERE EVERY SEAM IS TAPED SHUT. THESE ARE VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO OPEN AND CAUSE ME PANIC, AS I HAVE BROKE, CUT AND TORE ITEMS INSIDE TRYING TO GET INTO ENVELOPES. I UNDERSTAND IT IS REINFORCEMENT BUT THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER WAY. (Like - leaving one corner available)

🚫Food warnings: ALLERGIES: Walnuts (other nuts are okay)

🚫Anything musty or smoky smelling - it kills my senses and overwhelms me and goes in the garbage.

🚫AUTISM SPEAKS anything - puzzle pieces, blue pieces especially. This organization is not supportive of actually autistic people. I don’t agree with their philosophy, nor do they speak for me. (Advocating moment)

🚫 Propaganda of any kind: Religious, racial, political, not for profits... I just pass them on or toss them out.

FOR FUNSIES!!

I thought I would give a RAK on my profile!! Every month will be something NEW!!

FEBRUARY - DUMP CHILI: This is a super simple recipe, I make about once a week.

Ingredients: 1 lb cooked meat, 2 cans of beans (drained), and one 16(ish) ounce jar of Salsa. Optional - 1 can of corn (drained).

Instructions: Dump it all in a crock pot and put it on warm till it is warmed thru and you are ready to eat. ENJOY!!

The flavors are up to you. For example you can do ground beef, kidney beans and regular salsa for plain chili. Or you could do chicken, white beans and green salsa for chicken chili. One of our faves is steak chunks, black beans and Newmans Own mango salsa with corn.

Your art reminds me of Vincent Van Gogh! Your ACT rendition of Pinocchio looks a lot like his "Starry Night"! So haunting and hopeful at the same time! 𝕴𝖒𝖕𝖗𝖊𝖘𝖘𝖎𝖛𝖊! You know, he painted that famous masterpiece when he voluntarily entered the asylum of St. Paul near Saint-Rémy in the Provence region of southern France. "You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." Robin Williams. Gawd, how I miss that man! I am deeply touched by your ATC. Words cannot express how much it means to me. It is gorgeous. I love it! 💖❥💞❦💕❧💗♡💓♥️❤️❤💘ღ💝❣💘💚💟💙💜💛 εїз Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ ❤ ƸӜƷ εїз
