About

I have been creating, collecting, and building since i was a child. I love producing beautiful and useful items of all kinds. Streetside discards excite me! I buy moth eaten garments from thrift stores just because they're worth it. Old notes left in books are treasures i tuck away. There is a glow and warmth to these old relics. You can feel the history that clings to them and i get a sense of it's journey. I sometimes imagine i'm a steward for these items and I think others must perceive me that way also because i am often bequeathed... their aunts unfinished knitting projects, their gramma's stash of fabrics, photos so old the relatives aren't remembered - these pieces of their history that don't seem like trash, but.... but no one really wants them.
Well, I've decided to move past safeguarding these mundane artifacts.
I will fight for the revival revolution.
