Behind the looking glass

'Who are YOU?’ said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I–I hardly know, sir, just at present– at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.’

I'm Sandra - the ghost behind this shop.
Madness United is my personal wonderland. 

I was a strange child.
Different from my whole family.
Quiet, shy, head in the clouds, lost in the woods for hours, dreaming of more things to explore, interested in biological processes, burying dead bugs and always collecting sticks (something I still do today).
After some difficult times I studied Archaeology and Anthropology with a B.a.
That's the reason you'll always find skulls, bones and anatomic pictures on my fabrics and jewellery. 
I never worked in this field after university, but the love for bones stuck with me. 
Making things is a big part of me, I can't imagine life without it. 

You'll find a whole lot of different things here. 
A mad bunch inspired by all the stuff my heart beats for - Dark Victorian & gothic, a bit of steampunk & rockabilly, and a whole lot of Halloween & Spookiness.
 
I'm weird. I know.
If you stuck around this page for a while, you may be too.
And that is the greatest thing in the world! 
Let's be weird together.

Whoever you were this morning, whoever you are now: 
remember you are perfect this way.

Be yourself, 
stay weird & spooky! 
Sandra
