Introduction I'm Michelle, the artist formerly known as "Sognatrice" to long-time readers of my blog, Bleeding Espresso: http://bleedingespresso.com.

For those unfamiliar with the Eye-talian language it's pronounced "sohn-ya-tree-chay" (accent on the tree and roll the "r" if you can) and means "dreamer."

Interests reading, writing, taking long walks with Luna and Stella, yoga, cooking, baking, avoiding doing laundry, making a fool of myself making objects feminine when they are really masculine, bragging about my niece and nephew and how smart/sweet/adorable they are.
