about me

{me at about 6 years old}

Welcome to CopperBoom !

I am Clarisse, i was born in Paris in 1989, where i have lived for 24 years.
After that, my partner and i decided to leave everything behind and live in a smaller city, Bordeaux.

So i quit my job as a graphic designer for luxury cosmetics (which made me absolutely more miserable every day) and started a new job designing wine labels and packagings. A year later, i got pregnant and during my maternity leave we decided to go for a new adventure, leave Bordeaux to get lost in the woods, even deeper in France !
5 months after the birth of my baby boy, we went to live in the mountains in my sister’s house, not far from my parents’ house.

My partner is now training to become a marble worker and i am juggling between taking care of our son and working from home on my Etsy Shop – CopperBoomStudios and this blog which is harder than i could ever think with a baby that can’t survive five minutes without me (yes i haven’t peed alone in 19 months #momlife).

So, bear with me while i try to put my life in order and take you along in this journey with us !

Send me your questions, business inquiries or any other thing you want to share with me at clarisse@copperboom.fr.

    Glad to hear of someone as obsessed with Gilmore Girls as me 🙂 I absolutely love your Rory Gilmore reading challenge list. However, I did notice a few typos.
    *Part of #63 is repeated at the end of #64.
    *#s 41 and 42. Listed twice but based on my research I believe is only The Collected Stories by Eudora Welty
    * #141 The Inferno and #65 The Divine Comedy are redundant as The Inferno, The Purgatorio, and The Paradiso are the three books which comprise The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri
    I seem to have an eye for typos. I have found some in novels in textbooks as well. I should get a job as a proofreader 🙂

    I would absolutely love and appreciate if you could look over these suggestions and revise the list. I live by the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and plan to complete it over the next year.

      Hello Lena! And thank you so much for your comment and for the time you put into proofreading this, yes please let it be your job 🙂
      I am taking great consideration of this and will be making the changes as soon as possible, i promise.
      Can you send me an email at clarisse@copperboom.fr so that i can notify you when i do and send it to YOU before anybody else! (i don’t have a newsletter or anything, i won’t send you anything else than this)
      Thank you thank you thank you!

    Also #67 Don Quijote is actually Don Quixote, unless the Barnes & Noble classic misspelled it which would be an epic fail. 🙂

      HA! For this one, i know why, i’m french and we spell it the spanish way, i have never heard (or read) Don Quixote this way, that feels really weird to me… But if that’s the way it’s spelled in english, i’ll do it!
