I've been tagged...

...by the lovely and talented Michymoo :)

Here goes:
1> My real name is Stavri, but my friends call me Maya and my Etsy name is Lily...this can get a little confusing and can lead to long pauses when signing off emails (while wondering what my name is...)

2>I speak fluently greek and less fluently english and wish I could speak french...

3>I have an imaginary dog called Bob...He keeps me company till I adopt a real dog (who I plan to call Bob!)

4>I try and read as much as I can. Favourite authors include: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, Alberto Manguel, Alessandro Barrico, Odysseas Elytis and one of my favourite poets Wistawa Szymborska.

5> I have a habit of starting conversations with anything - including animals, plants and other objects...i.e If say, I pass a tree or a cat I will say "hello" to them - thankfully my friends have got used to this and have stopped asking me who I am talking to!

Hello Maya!
I have been tagged! Cool! I shall have to try and think of some interesting things about myself, which might be hard.

Good luck with the boutique illustrations. I think it'll work out great for you! :D
