Join me behind the scenes of my current creative or homestead projects. I hope to share thoughts, inspiration and various things that bring me joy.

Hi, Iā€™m Tatiana. I’m an artist, crafter and aspiring novelist. Some of my interests include: travel, minimalism, spiritualism, philosophy, self-actualization, music, reading, hand sewing, knitting, historical clothing, homesteading and gardening. I am a queer cis-female who lives in Portland, Oregon with my spouse and our Siamese cat Vinnie.

I plan to get a post out at least every Monday but may find inspiration to post more than that. Sign up below to receive notifications about when I have a new post up. šŸ™‚
