About Me

I am only a girl who draws. And a bit of a crafter too, I confess.

My Flickr nick is Elotopia, You can check out more about me and what I work on, on my Flickr photo page.

PLEASE contact me before rating, if you have not received my swap.

Tea Love

I'm a tea addict! And I have a really huge collection.

My favs are Yogi's, Tazo's (I can't find them in my country), but I love anything with a touch of spices and fruits. I love chais!

I don't realy like pure Ginger or Linden ones, also as pure black tea.

Now that I'm under treatment, I can't drink either green teas or strong black ones, please take this under consideration when you send me something. Thank you.

Please send your tea inside a sealed plastic bag. I've received several envelopes in a pretty bad shape before.

10 random things about me

  1. I try to be an artist. I like to use old things with new design statements.
  2. I am very discrete.
  3. I have 3 cats.
  4. I wish I could travel more (and also have more free time... oh yes, and money).
  5. I am on a very restrict diet, so please do NOT send me sugar or candy.
  6. I don't like to collect things, so I don't like to clutter.
  7. I'm addicted to Beethoven.
  8. I'm very much into design. Oh, and I'm a perfectionist!
  9. I'm learning japanese. Next I'll learn russian. And I love to read.
  10. I have my head so full of projects and ideas that sometimes I forget about everything!

What I love to receive (and no

My ideal box is made of things we can wear or work with. I'm a simple girl, I don't really like bright colors.

That said, I love things that inspire, love fabrics, embelishments and small button & thin ribbons for my dolls (I'm a real ribbon lover!), or something I can work with while drawing and painting.

Oh, and something special from your country ;)

But the things I just can't have are earrings or other wearable things with metal on (I'm allergic!)

And for now, please do NOT send me food as I am on a very restrict diet.

If you are in doubt on what to send me, then you can send me good material to work with... oh boy, that would make my day!

Hello I am late in thanking you for the lovely post card you sent to me. I think you're amazingly clever to have your own illustrations printed up like that and your card has a special place in my collection. Love from Australia Jacinta
