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!

Great Enough for Life.



The purpose of Christianity is not to avoid difficulty, but to produce a character adequate to meet it when it comes. It does not make life easy; rather it tries to make us great enough for life.


James Christensen


I pray that I will be great enough to for life, great enough to describe the woman who gave me life and has loved me through 47 years of me being me. Me being me, why even just today I stood at the bedside of my Mother and explained that in a past life I was a masseuse and in the life before that I was a fan dancer. Long story but regardless, no one in that room got it but my Mother and she has tubes coming out of her mouth and I will never hear her laugh at me being me again. My heart is heavy and yet as I sit on the floor in the waiting room I know that the woman who has raised me with the heart and soul of a warrior and yet with the gentleness that only a Mother can have will soon be whole and complete and sitting in Heaven cuddling with my precious Jessica. My Mother, Marilyn D Weatherly did not always have an easy life but she had a great life and she approach life with great joy and great courage. I should be so lucky.


I love you Mom and I thank you for loving me enough to let me be me. Susan

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.
