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: Thanks so much for sharing your holidays with me. :) I love the idea of adopting a turkey, too!
Response: I'm so glad! It's a fun tradition. One year we went to the closest Farm Sanctuary (near LA) for their special Turkey celebration. They gave the Turkeys salad and pumpkin pie, they loved that pie! Everyone cheered!

Comment: Thank you for the fun Tofu zine! I enjoy adding it to my diet on occasion and I hope to try the included recipe too!
Response: I'm glad you like it. Tofu is an amazing food, you can do anything with it! In the recipe I put optional on the nutritional yeast in case it's hard to find for some folks but use it if you can, many healthy type stores have it in bulk so you can buy it in a small amount, it's cheap.
