About Me

Introducing myself, Lyss! Im a 4th generation American whose family came over to the USA from Graciosa + Corvo Island, Azores, Portugal. The last of my European Portuguese speaking relatives passed when i was very young; I am currently trying to teach myself the language and eventually help my mother to learn as well :-) im always yearning to learn more! If you have any recipes, travel stories, anything i would adore them!

This is a safe space for anybody and everybody ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Theres far too much hate, division, and judgement in the general universe. I live by the term of spreading love to all, and protecting the Earth that we live in โค๏ธ Im passionate about activism, it all started when i was a child and my dad frequently took me to animal shelters to volunteer and stand up for those who dont have a voice of their own ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฆจ๐Ÿธ i fell in love with connecting to creatures of all kinds; going to audobons to learn about protecting the native owl species, going out through the sand and placing protective cages over turtle eggs so they safely hatch without harm, visiting butterfly sanctuaries, and planting trees locally. My father really impacted my appreciation for all kinds of wild-life beauty as he even taught me about the marine life and bug species! Long story short id love anything with critters on it :D I especially love oppossums, chipmunks, toads, raccoons, etc! I am so thrilled to be in armadillo territory now, i am kind of obsessed with them!

I am currently raising a 3 lb chihuahua pup named Punk; he always wants to be held and he gets chilly easily, he would love any kind of soft fabric or fitting crafty creation! He likes to be wrapped in scarves as well. I cant knit or crochet :-( but i use fabric to make carrier bags he snuggles in when we go out

  • generic inspirational mottos on anything. "Live laugh love", dream on, etc

  • nothing religious or political, respectfully. With the exception of pagan related items or other magickal elements
