I’m so indie that I listen to indie music.
I’m so indie that I love handmade and independent publishing markets.
I’m so indie that I would stay hours watching Baronciani while he’s drawing.

And the others have now the possibility to find out what they missed and make up for.
Get ready for a long long but ridiculously good looking article. This is just part #1.

Noelia is a spanish crafter (from Barcelona) who is living in Italy for only 7 months and in recent times is testing her innate artistic ability.

It’s all by herself, she chooses personally the products, she curates the website and the blog, so she is a maker too, in her own way: her website reveals a genuine passion for what she does.
