Meet the Maker

Meet the Maker

A new year, a new me! No not really just a new place for the blog. So I'm going to start out with an introduction to the insanity. 

I’m the owner, creator, and RBF behind Smart Sassery - Gifts and Stationery. My friends calls me Indi, short for Indica. Sometimes you'll hear Cris or Cristie that's my first name. I don't use it much. 

I am guilty of laughing at everything, yes everything, even when I fall down. I have a slightly sarcastic sense of humor. Just a little bit. I am a professional at self-entertainment, and find myself extremely hilarious! Someone has to laugh at my jokes right? 

I have been a serial creator all my life, so I’m quite good at making lots of different things. I also have ADHD so that kind of explains a lot. My style is basically elegant glam meets Victorian creep. Ya, I probably made that up along the way, but I love it. Roses and skulls are just meant to be.  Throw in some crowns and I'll love you forever. 

I’d list all the things I love but most everything I fall for gets discontinued. Seriously everything. So in creating things, I started making the things I’ve always wanted but couldn’t seem to find.

My favorite things to do are drink coffee, play outside, and make things. I love all things Burton. (Except the musical. Don’t shoot me. Not a big Disney fan either so that's a weird relationship.) Two of my favorite illustrators are Gris Grimly and J Scott Campbell. I love Poe, Carroll, Wilde, Emerson.. I’m going to stop there because that list goes on forever. Dark chocolate is my weakness. I can never say no. I’m one of those crazy clean eaters, and I actually like to exercise. Could never go vegan or veg because I love bacon entirely too much. Almost more than coffee and chocolate. 

I have to tell you I'm really excited to move away from social media. I have a love hate relationship with social. Hahaha It both helps, and feeds the social anxiety monster.  Tell me how it makes you feel. lol Seriously, I'm not alone right? I am there lots though. Twitter is my favorite. There're will be another blog post about how I use social so be on the look out for that. 

I hope to grow not only my little shop but also a community of like minded weirdos. That enjoy each other separately, from the comfort of their own homes. If you like this post, let me know in the comments. Can you relate to anything?  Let me know I'm not alone. I'd love to get to know you too. I promise to remove all trolls and meanie heads. Please don't be afraid to say hi. It makes my day.
