About Me

i JUST made a blog! bear with me while i figure it out! been a bicycling vegan for 9 yrs, i do not own a car, and do not drive (although i do have a driver's licence)...have two rescue cats who rule the roost(Skully, and Mealy) and one rescue mutt (Mia 1/2 austrailian shepherd 1/2 beagle)...work in an independent, local bakery (making pastries and cakes, and decorating) i adore cooking, my boyfriend and love to find and make new vegan recipes, we do not eat out, unless it is a very special occasion. we also both enjoy making 3D papertoys. i do much of my work in colored pencil, and you will receive almost only hand drawn/hand made items from me. i really love/prefer receiving hand made/drawn items as well...IF IT'S EMBROIDERY, I'M IN! i taught myself to embroider when i was 8 and i've been doing it since!

Favorite Books

my absolute favorite is 'confederacy of dunces', but 'apathy and other small victories' is a close second. i also like 'a clockwork orange', 'cat's cradle', 'slaughterhouse five', 'pride and prejudice', 52 projects....i love to read satires, especially political satire.

Favorite Music

for absolute favorites. it's a toss up between the weakerthans and el ten eleven...but a few other top bands...ALKALINE TRIO, against me!, america, arcade fire, audio karate, bad religion, band of horses, BEAR VS. SHARK, bell x1, billy talent, bob dylan, bon iver, bouncing souls, bright eyes, bruce springsteen, the clash, coheed & cambria, conway twitty, COUNTING CROWS, cursive, death cab for cutie, the decemberists, defiance ohio, dengue fever, ella fitzgerald, emmylou harris, genesis, GWAR, hank williams, INTERPOL, jethro tull, jim croce, joy division, lyle lovett, meiko, metric, millencollin, mountain goats, murder by death, neil young, NINE INCH NAILS, paul simon, piebald, rancid, rise against, rob zombie, rogue wave, SAGE FRANCIS, the shins, small brown bike, social distortion, soul asylum, stars, the streets, TRACY CHAPMAN, violent femmes, WANDA JACKSON, the weepies...

Favorite Movies

movies from the 40's and 50's. LOVE old paul newman & cary grant movies, and mae west is my hero. all time favorite is ARSENIC AND OLD LACE... and cool hand luke..."i can eat 50 eggs in one hour"

*PAUL NEWMAN (swooooon!) *vegan recipes *camping *backpacking *bicycling (my boyfriend and i bicycled from seattle to san fran and i'm dying to do it again) *GLOBES/MAPS of all shapes and sizes, 3d or pictures *the eiffel tower *lake superior *fun and interesting scrap paper *colored pencils *old comic books, or comic book pages. *SCRABBLE *euchre *fake moustaches *zombies *pirates *wearing my boyfriend's clothes *the little mermaid *giant coffee mugs *FEMINISM! girl power! *getting cards in the mail! *MICHIGAN SHAPED THINGS (i'm originally from there) *PAPER CRANES! *3D papercrafts *buttons, and pins (especially political, more left than right!) *the velveteen rabbit *turquoise (and turquoise and orange) *old photos (especially of paris) *tasteful nude art *elephants *foxes *punk rock *anatomically correct hearts *anything spongebob *hand drawn postcards and atc's *hand drawn anything *stichery from around the world *manipulating thrift store art (ex: http://www.thewurstgallery.com/vintage_vandals.html) *fun and funky kitchen magnets *any type of nuts, especially brazil nuts! *animal rights cards *blank greeting cards *calvin and hobbes *get fuzzy *vegan snacks *sailor jerry art *The Office television show *pictures, drawings, or paintings of Queen Anne's Lace flowers *austrailian shepherds


i'm a vegan so i obviously don't like items portraying or alluding to animal abuse. i'm a non-smoker, so smoke fumes aren't my style either.

little wishlist

i'm never expecting anything, but if you happen to have extra tea, cat toys, dog toys, embroidry floss, or embroidery supplies in general...BUT MOST OF ALL, i would love a paper crane made by YOU!!

favorite crafts

EMBROIDERY! i embroidering constantly, atcs, making stencils, and especially 3D papercraft, really i'm up for any new project that makes me think from new angles and perspectives, and get my brain in gear
