About
Anneliesesmile

Anneliesesmile is my Etsy shop´s name. The name Anneliesesmile was inspired by the thoughtful movie called Mona Lisa Smile with Julia Roberts. The movie is about the importance of education, of critical thinking and of the right to choose your own future, even though it is against societal expectations.

Education has always been important to me and I felt really connected to the movie. Moreover, my name is very similar to Mona Lisa and I thought, it was a good fit. I then decided to choose the German version of my name because after all these years living in Germany it has become my new home.
