About

My name is Cassie.

Welcome to my blog! 

I lived most of my life in Florida but moved across the country toward the end of 2016 and currently reside in northern California. It’s beautiful and a lot less humid than I’m used to – although I would probably like to end up somewhere with a snowy winter! Aside from these two spots in the country, I’ve also lived in Massachusetts, Maryland, and Colorado. California is definitely my favorite so far, although I miss Disney World like crazy!

For hobbies, I love drawing, painting, bullet journaling, tarot, sci-fi, hanging out with my dogs, baking, playing video games,  playing the same 5 songs I loved in high school on repeat til everyone nearby hates me, embroidery, reading and collecting both comic books & normal books, movies — also, coffee. I love lots and lots of coffee! 🙂

I’ve been drawing since I was a kid (see 3 year old Cassie below!), but only started painting within the last few years. I like picking up random new things I haven’t tried before, and watercolors ended up being one that I really loved – so it stuck! Since I started painting, I’ve done commissions for people, and have opened my own Etsy shop for my prints & bookmarks! I’m still a little shocked anytime anyone wants to pay me for art, to be honest with you – how flattering!!

In addition to art stuff, I have 4 “normal” jobs – I’m an art & hand knit blanket instructor / bartender at an art workshop, the Social Media & Blog Manager for 4 Sacramento based companies, an event vendor for a photobooth company, and a personal shopper. I also volunteer at my local library when I can with a few children’s programs I help out with!

My blog is a combination of the things I’m most passionate about – currently, that’s mostly books, lists, games, and food! You may also see lots of puppies around – I have a little family of 3 dogs and love them with my whole heart – as well as general updates & photos about my life.

I love reading probably more than any other hobby. I taught myself to read at 3-years-old, and haven’t stopped since! My favorite genres are horror, sci-fi, fantasy, classics & YA. I can’t narrow down a favorite author or book (because I love too many!), but I’m always happy to provide recommendations to anyone!
