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 witchy odds-and-ends. You can find me on Instagram @ thepaperpagan
Some of my favorite things to swap:
-quotes on creativity from writers and artists
-beautiful letters and decorated envelopes that I can glue into my journal. I make pockets out of the envelopes and keep the letters in them!
-pagan, Buddhist, or meditation themed things
-lavender and violet
-foxes, mushrooms, forest creatures and scenes
-magical beings like fairies, unicorns, mermaids, dragons, gnomes, etc.
-books, reading, libraries
-mindfulness and meditation
-classic women writers
-writing and journaling
-Stonehenge and other standing stones of the British Isles
-zodiac sign: Gemini
-Asian motifs and patterns
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.
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. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with things that I can't use. Extras are not necessary, but if there is something you think that I might like that is listed above as a particular interest, please feel free to include it.
