Hello! My name is Evita and thank you for visiting my blog. I moved back to Charleston in February 2008, with Michael in tow, after living in Atlanta for 11 years to take on the full time job of caregiver for my parents. I started this blog in August 2009 as a place to host some of my various attempts to be creative and indulge my odd tastes. Since then, I have ventured into the world of trying to make a go as an independent crafter. We also moved into a new house in June of 2010 and we’re slowly working on making it our own.

In 2012, I became an Apartment Therapy Contributor.

I am a graphic designer and I love to make original costumes and corsets when time allows. I love working and living in my garden as well. I love coffee. It almost rivals my love for absinthe. I am also a certified massage therapist and yoga instructor.

I do my best to give credit when I repost others’ work. If you see something that has not or has been credited incorrectly, please feel free to email me at submissions{at}thehappyheathen{com}com and I will be sure to change it. Likewise, if you want to use a photo from the site, go right ahead, but please give credit and drop us a line that you’re using it. Thanks!

I hope you enjoy your visit and would love to hear from you.

I’m not joking about azaleas.
