Hi, I’m Roxanne Marie, and I started blogging to document my journey through life in the aspects of motherhood, family life, arts, music, and crafts while dealing with mental health issues.

Paper can be transformed in so many ways just as we humans can also be transformed. Here in this blog, you will find various interpretations of my thoughts and emotions as I express myself through paintings, fiber art, and music.

Welcome to my Paper Menagerie! Please enjoy looking around and feel free to connect with me!

[2019] It’s been four years since I started this blog, and in the past two years, I barely made any posts at all. I was so deep into my depression and anxiety attacks for the entire 2017-2018. These past few years have been the most challenging yet enlightening years of my life so far. I’ve tried a lot of things, and also failed in some things, but I’m happy to come to this point where I can actually say that I feel better than I have in years. I’ve done therapy and several changes in my lifestyle, which you can follow in this blog which I will now update regularly. To my friends and readers who stuck around in my inactivity, thank you so much for your support! We’ll hear more from each other from now on!
