So about me then....
I have an unhealthy addiction to unusual picture frames. I love PAPER. And transparent tape. Or colored tape. Or cassette tape. Or really any kind of tape. Mixed media collage and shadowbox-type art are my absolute favorites. Anything cute or weird or weirdly cute is perfect for me. I love music and pop culture. I like anything that reminds me of someone I love. And I was born with the packrat gene, so I need to keep EVERYTHING, which makes selling my endeavors especially difficult for me.

I am most influenced by people and emotions and sometimes other people's emotions. And music, of course. I have a million musical influences. And if I could change only one thing about myself, it would be my God-awful singing voice.


My shop name was formerly Mogwai, in reference to the 80s classic "Gremlins," not the band. (Everyone asks.) I joined etsy as a buyer, and everything I tried registering under was taken. You know how it goes. I spent a long time trying to come up with a new shop name that better suits the kinds of things I sell - mainly art for children and craft supplies. In August 2012, I spent a single weekend without touching a vintage item or working an hour at my day job, focused totally on a few art projects I'd committed to. It was just the change I needed from my regular routine, and it inspired me to change my shop name from Mogwai to ArtWeekend.
