People call me Grizabella online. My real name is Ellen. I live surrounded by the 1,678,037-acre Willamette National Forest.
I have many pastimes. I tell old-fashioned fortunes, make purses, small bags, moccasins, beaded barrettes, jewelry, handmade character dolls and various other things. I also paint with oils and watercolors and make things for children which include games, dolls and other toys. In coming weeks and months, many of these things will appear in these pages. This website is new, so there's a lot yet to be put on display.
I barter for ordinary things so don't be afraid to barter and haggle. Especially right now when so many are struggling with high unemployment. I'm always willing to consider all or part trade. It's a way of life I embrace and at this time in my life, it makes perfect sense to me. It's also a way of helping others to have things they want or need even if they don't have the money to spend but do have items they want to barter with.
