smallestforest's Shop Announcement

At the moment I am in Guyana, living aboard a small sailboat with my husband.

We are moored in the Essequibo River, a wild and undeveloped place, with a jungle and river system that goes as far as Venezuela and Brazil, hooking up with the Amazon river network and the famous Angel Falls. This is probably the best kept secret of South America. No tourists, and the pushy materialism of the First World has not managed to infiltrate very much. There's no internet or postal services either (there IS a post office, but we have been told that the most one can safely send from here is a postcard). The people are absolutely beautiful, warm and generous and welcoming as we have never before experienced. But we can't sell our books from here, sorry.

Availability of products and postage rates will vary from country to country. Thank you for your patience!

Thanks for visiting the smallest forest (◕ ◞ ◕`)

I'm a Filipina-American, a resident of Darwin, Australia, where I live on a converted fishing boat in the mangroves with my husband, a writer and adventurer of epic proportions. We are artists, writers, big readers, and perpetual students of Life.

2015 finds us in Brazil and headed for the Caribbean. We are sailing around, with plans to visit Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, and anywhere else that our wanderlust takes a fancy to. A big adventure.

Life on a small boat, without electricity or space, can make crafting for ETSY difficult, though I still hope to find ways to make small, beautiful things...workspace or no!
I create something just about every day, even if it is just a paainted page in my visual journal...

Postage rates, shipping arrangements, and delivery times, are all up in the air at the we move from country to country, regulations and conditions will change. For more information, please send me a message and I will let you know what the situation is, depending on where in the world we are. I apologise for any invonvenience...running an ETSY shop on the go is quite a challenge!
