About Me

I love reading, cooking, making art, writing and learning new things. I'm passionate about social justice and equality and taking care of our dear planet and all who live here.

Being Earth friendly is important to me so I have a preference for re-cycled, second hand and handmade stuff.

I'm a long time vegan. I don't eat or wear any animals or use stuff made from leather, wool, feathers, bees wax etc. No meat, dairy, honey. If you're not sure feel free to ask.

I have a black and white tuxedo cat named Wednesday Caddams.

I love vintage decor especially 1940's & 1950's. I love Mexican art and crafts especially vintage.

Fave colors: Green and Pink.

Extras are nice but I'm happiest if you really put thought and heart into the swap it self.

Comment: I love your zine - great "collage" work! I wish I'd been to the tar pits the last time I was out there. I've also adopted a Farm Sanctuary turkey, and it's such a great feeling! I'm trying to work on the Kondo tidying book - it's a great book, but oh, my craft stuff is so hard to accommodate! Thanks for sending (and making) - good luck with your list!
Response: Oh my gosh we have a lot in common! I have just decided to get rid of a desk I never use (that holds my serger that I rarely use) and get another shelf for craft supplies and 'in progress' swaps.

Comment: I'm still working on mine but thanks for the heartfelt note.
Response: It's hard to know what to say at a time like this. But saying it anyway is what makes a difference.

Comment: Hi Teagan! I love the Dotee Doll! I sent off my first one for this swap too! Is the Doll supposed to be from Legend of Zelda? Looks kind of like that... if I remember correctly. Haven't play Legend since the original Nintendo (for the tv, not handheld) came out! Thanks again! I love my first Dotee :-)
Response: I'm glad you like it! I never played Zelda so any resemblance is accidental :)

Response: This was an interesting experience. I haven't journaled in a while and Monday night, I missed doing it. I started a new one on the 1st to exchange with a friend out of state. Yeah, my cat was tempted by those beads too. Thanks for hosting!
