Hi! My name is Aja Moniz. I am a writer and an artist, inclined toward fantastical content and neo-Victorian aesthetics. I am closer to thirty years old than not and will be for quite some time yet, and I am never bored. This is a little spot where I can share what I'm doing and what I'm looking at.
Interests: Writing, crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, dolls, being classier than you, The Last Unicorn, sipping tea, Patricia McKillip, fairy tales, dragons, cats, Monster High, Alice in Wonderland, manga, The Labyrinth, Hook, pattern design, snide running commentary, looking at things I cannot have, teddy bears, dresses, Ruby Gloom, witches, terrorizing my dear ones lovingly, Neil Gaiman, Ursula Vernon, organizing things, tolerating my partner, being nocturnal, fantasy, vampires who do not sparkle, going to sleep at night wrapped in the loving embrace of my gargantuan to-do list, My Neighbor Totoro, Nyanpire...
...you know. Just stuff.
Quote of the Moment: "Real magic can never be made by offering up someone else's liver. You must tear out your own, and not expect to get it back. The true witches know that." ~Peter S. Beagle, "The Last Unicorn"
My latest dragon on Etsy. The last one I’ll be making for a while, I’m afraid. I have a ton of yarn in my stash that’s sure to become dragons eventually, but for now I have to focus on new designs, as far as the crochet goes.
