    Art, stories and taking over the world

    My name is Gitta Mikk and I am proud of my mental illnesses. I am an artist and a writer and a brat. At least according to my mother.

    I’m just trying to recruit a band of awesome crazy badass neurodivergent weirdos who will read my stories and then come follow me in my quest to establish a dominant but gentle rule over the planet.
    Because we definitely deserve a chance to rule.

    I’ll be posting cheeky/semi-humorous stories that highlight the unique parts of Mental Health that touch my own life in a personal way and sharing experiences that I think are not uncommon for people with mental illnesses to experience in general.

    I will write and blog about my art as well because it is rooted and themed in neirodivergence! (We all love some pretty art right??)

    I’ll also likely post some random thoughts as they pop into my head to remind everyone to follow me if they would like to be a part of the coming revolution and join my Neurodivergent matriarchal reign.

    Follow MEEE my children!!

    What crafty works in progress (WIPs) from 2020 are you “leaving behind” in favor of new projects for 2021? 🧶🎨📝

    What’s a work in progress you’re leaving in 2020? Maybe it’s a complicated blanket you put aside a few months ago and just dread picking back up. Or maybe it’s a story you’ve been trying to write but can’t seem to get started.

    For me, it’s definitely my temperature blanket. I started cataloguing the high temperature for each day in 2020 and crocheting a row in a color corresponding to a color chart I created. I ended up putting it down around April but swore I would pick it back up “when I had more time,” so I kept track of the temps ...yet I never picked it back up. I think I am gonna leave this blanket in 2020 where it belong. The question remains, what do I do with all the leftover yarn? 🤔🧶

    What is a project you started in 2020 but aren’t going to continue working on in 2021? I’d love to know... I can’t be the only one leaving some projects in the dust lol.
