About Me


My name is Allison. Aliza Shandel is my Hebrew name, and it means joyous one and beautiful, respectively. This blog allows me to share the things that make life joyous and beautiful to me. I’m a recent college graduate from Oregon State University with a B.A. in English, and a minor in writing. Currently I’m working away at my first novel and my first book of poetry. While I’m doing that I’m also running an Etsy shop devoted to calligraphy (Aliza’s Inklings).

As you can see, my interests vary widely. I love to read, write, practice yoga and calligraphy, bake, scout for vintage treasures, and watch films all while trying to live as locally and sustainably as I can.

So have a look around, make comments, and let’s create something together.
