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 was very active as a songwriter at one time but not presently. I've written one screenplay and outlined a second. I like writing flash fiction which I sometimes put in zines.

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: Teagen, thank you so much for the great Elvis postcard. Gosh, he was such s good looking fellow. Never went through the Elvis stage that much. I was older. Shirley
Response: You're welcome :) I don't hear many references to Elvis these days. I wander how many younger people know who he is or how influential.

Comment: Yay! I’ll be sure to do your vegan dare! I was vegan for several years before cheese hooked me back in. I know the addiction properties of cheese but I was highly stressed and it was a comfort food. Thank you for the recommendations. Some I know and some are new so I’m excited! I’ll post my progress on ig 👍
Response: That makes my day! There are so many new vegan cheeses now and recipes for cheesy good stuff. If you look up BOSH! on face book, their recipe for CamemBOSH! is so good! I reduce the salt a little. It's a great time to come back to Vegan :)

Comment: When my kids got the mail they read your date and were laughing before they handed it to me cause they know I love my milk products. I am thinking about how I could do your challenge.
Response: I hope you have fun with it. There are so many dairy alternative products, recipes, blogs all kinds of stuff it's amazing! Urban vegan has a blog about the best 21 non-dairy ice creams. If you do a little exploring and planning I think you can enjoy it and learn some things too :)
