I've also recently started a blog. I'm a little shy about sharing it, but here goes.... http://www.thehobotrain.blogspot.com I talk about my own handmade goodies, and handmade stuff in general, and also touch on another big interest of mine: raw food. It's a blog that kind of meanders through my thoughts, sometimes get a bit off tangent, but it is 100% me. Thanks! ♥

I have another Etsy shop as well, dedicated to 100% upcycled products. It's called The Hobo Train. Please check it out.... www.thehobotrain.etsy.com . Muah! ♥
