About Me

Hi, my name is Eleanor. Me in a nutshell: Artsy-litsy, kinda flitsy, quasi-bohemian. Semi-gothy, slightly crunchy, completely quirky, nature-based, contemplative mom.

Semi-retired from the publishing industry, I now work part-time at a bookstore where I love planning and hosting author events. Crazy customers and eccentric writers are part of my everyday life. I spend the weekends with my husband who is a chef and an artist. Our house is decorated in a pan-Asian style with a special emphasis on Godzilla. We enjoy going to ethnic grocery stores and to thrift stores together. I mostly 'thrift' for art supplies, books, cookbooks on afternoon tea and New Orleans cuisine, vintage needlework, altar items, and Bohemian odds-and-ends. You can find me on Instagram @ thepaperpagan


I love to receive the following goodies as extras:

-stamped images



-beautiful and inspiring images and words cut from magazines, old books, or other printed matter


-happy mail

-grimoire pages

-crochet patterns

-quotes on creativity from writers and artists

-coloring pages for grown-ups

-journal pages and pockets

-business cards or flyers from your local pagan shop or business

-things that I can glue into my journal

Favorite Themes

-lavender and violet

-foxes, mushrooms, forest creatures and scenes

-magical beings like fairies, unicorns, mermaids, dragons, gnomes, etc.


-books, reading, libraries

-mindfulness and meditation

-chakras, yoga

-art journaling

-classic women writers




-collage, magpie journaling, glue books

-afternoon tea

-writing and journaling

-Stonehenge and other standing stones of the British Isles


-zodiac sign: Gemini


-Asian motifs and patterns

Favorite Books


I tend to read mostly classic literature and science-fiction/fantasy, though I will usually read a few works by contemporary female authors every year.

Kage Baker, Jane Austen, Sylvia Plath, and Donna Tartt are a few of my favorite authors.


My interests are mainly books on how to write, paint, draw, journal, grow houseplants, garden, and meditate. I love cookbooks on afternoon tea, baking, and New Orleans cuisine.

Please Don't Send

I would prefer not to receive classroom reward stickers, Disney, incense, tea with artificial flavoring, or religious items that aren't Pagan or Buddhist in nature.
