My name is Ilona, and I am a professional housewife. I say professional, as otherwise I don’t get taken seriously by some people in modern society. My days are structured around a home cleaning schedule, interspersed with the time I take to explore my my interests.
This website is a record of my creative work, as well as a documentation of my learning process. The information here is intended to be a helpful guide to anyone looking for inspiration, ideas and motivation.
