I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

Story Time for Jenn

This post is for Jenn. She is my daughter, my source of great joy and bended knee. She teaches me, she comforts me, she tells me when I am being stupid and she takes pride in me, which pushes me forward. She is the arrow that I have sent forth into this world and I know that she can and will go so much farther then I ever even dreamed. Jenn, I know that there are many questions haunting you these days. I believe that God has endowed you with many amazing gifts and talents. Sometimes life would be easier if there were only one or two things that you were good at but in your case the world is wide open and I think He has gifted you because He expects big things from you. Focus on His voice and all will fall into place. Oh, and if you don't like what is being presented to you, just call me, I might have a recipe for that!

This is the fairy tale that should have been read to us when we were
little :

Once upon a time in a land far away,
a beautiful, independent,
self-assured princess
happened upon a frog as she sat
contemplating ecological issues
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
in a verdant meadow near her castle.

The frog hopped into the princess' lap
and said: " Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
One kiss from you, however,
and I will turn back into the dapper, young prince that I am
and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle
with my mother,where you can prepare my meals,
clean my clothes, bear my children,and forever feel

grateful and happy doing so. "

That night,as the princess dined sumptuously
on lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce,
she chuckled and thought to herself:
I don't freakin think so.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
