The Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 4

When someone smiles at me I am no longer the master of my face because my heart takes control and I smile back without even thinking! I believe smiles are the currency of the heart and I always feel blessed when I receive those beautiful heartfelt deposits. When I began the journey of creating 5 gourd vessels to be given away I never anticipated…

Burning My Innocence





Have you ever seen the KKK burn a cross with the intention of deliberately scaring people? Have you ever seen men with white hoods covering their faces? I have. Have you ever heard men wearing white hoods yelling obscenities about ( insert N word pluralized) and threatening to kill said person because of the color of their skin? I have. Have you ever…

The Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 3

     For my third gourd gifting adventure I did not have to look far for a particular gourd that was to embody my creativity. Nope, I did not need to look far because when I cut the top off the gourd I used for my second gourd gifting I set that gourd's neck next to my violets waiting to be planted. That is when I saw a flower vase gourd! So, I picked up the gourd top, spun it around trying to figure out just how to craft it into a flower holding vessel when the…

My Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 2

     Outside of art classes in high school I've never faced a deadline for completion of any of my artsy or crafty adventures. Like many artist (dare I call myself an artist?), but anyway, like many artist I  work at my own pace which can at times be no pace at all for long periods of time. Obligating myself to 5 people with a promise to create something homemade for them was the best creative boost…

I Step Into Me

 

I step into the night, fleeing what I cannot see

Carrying candle lit to light my darkened way

Heart beating words of hope

That your light will pull me like…

The Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 1

     I shocked myself when I read the date on my last blog post in my Blogger Blog: Plants, Paint, Glue, and Jigsaws; February 2012! Whoa! 11 months slipped by without me writing one sentence for my blog. In my defense to myself about myself  I was not slacking off and snoozing overtime! The months flew by unnoticed as I drew and burned…

And Then She Came ... UGH!

What you see is the expression on my face of exasperation upon learning that my fellow packsters were going to invite a stranger into OUR pack! I just could not wrap my mind around why our happy home would need another dog ... and all I could think was, "oh woof is me!"

So, here I was as happy as…

My Eyes Open

My eyes open within my heart,

The veils of illusion fall away,

My Vision shoots through

My head

Peering into the Void

I see myself as I have

Never seen myself

There, Up in the

Cradle of…

Recharging Creativity ~ Mine

 

 

I am not excused from losing my Umph. I am not excused from not finding fuel for my creative drive nor am I excused from times when my creative juices just don't flow.  Nope, I am just as human as the next human standing in line for inspiration. Some days I  feel like I am waiting for a special, unique, ordinary moment that moves me. I feel like I wait for that… Continue

Book List Number One, Day One ... Nightstand Collection

   As I considered the wonderful task of reading all my unread treasures I was overwhelmed with just where to begin. Do I start making my list by going through all my bookcases, or going through the books all neatly lined up on the floor in my office or? My head was just numb with too much thinking and not enough doing. I took the thought of making a list and parked it in the back of my mind and crawled into bed. That is where the proverbial light bulb went off. I reached towards my…
