My name is Eunice, I live in Porto and I am the face behind the blog http://www.therabbithole.pt.
I graduated in Biology and I have a PhD in Science Communication. During the past few years I did things like scientific research, exhibition development, science communication, I studied the role of biodiversity in children books.
I struggle when people ask me what I do but I can talk for hours about what I like to do. I’m addicted to learn, to create with my own hands and I am in love with the incomparable power of creativity. I’m what some call a “maker” and a “crafter”. I sew but I’m not a seamstress, I bake but I’m not a baker, I paint but I’m not a painter, I garden and I’m not a gardener. I’m not expert on anything, but I do everything as if it was my dream job! I choose to do the things that make me happy.
I seek the manual, original and ancestral ways of doing everything. I declare my passion for the independence that comes from the know how. I choose to build and share.
I recognize the achievements of the contemporary life and use them to support my principles.
I claim a spontaneous, handmade life: simple, unpretentious, free and meaningful. I try to give it intention, create new spaces to live and distort time, deliberately.
I recognize and I am inspired by the treasures that nature provides. I believe in living the seasons and the nature rhythms, bringing its charm to my daily life.
I appreciate the beauty and uniqueness in all things.
I believe in the comfort of the arrival, the cosiness of a handmade home and the warmth of memories. I long to fill my life with them, live it intensely, creating stories and leaving my print.
More about me:
Among the things I love to do and learn, some have a special place in my life: sewing, patchwork, painting, music, knitting and printing. I practice them accompanied by other enthusiasts from my family!
