Eleanna Kotsikou
Hello there! My name is Eleanna Kotsikou aka zdrop for the crafting world. I come from Greece. I have lived in France, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK, but I've never traveled outside Europe. I have studied architecture and urbanism. The creative process from concept to end result is really important for me. I love color. I love design. I dance. I laugh (too) loud.
