The most magnificent Wildflower always blooms where ever it's seed happens to land. We could take a lesson from the Wildflower and it's strength and beauty. No matter where you happen to land you can always find a way to bloom and show your own style of strength and beauty. Wildflowers come in all colors, shapes and sizes and are known for their perseverance and determination. What kind of Wildflower are you and what do you see for yourself as you take root and bloom?

Fang-tastic Books

This is a fun blog contest at fang-tasticbooks for a free custom poster, maybe I could have a group picture done with all my little dollies at once! Now that would be a fun poster, of course I'd have to separate some of them. You know how jealous some of the diva types can get. Somewhere above should be a link to take you there just click and there you are!

Incantaroma Blog

Incantaroma Protection Dolls, one protects the front entrance to your home the other protects your back entrance. I put wooden beads in a bottle and added drops of special oils with protective essences and sealed it shut. We moved from a bigger town and bigger home to a smaller town and moved in with an elderly relative who was unable to care for themselves at the time. So some items were boxed away for a few years and when I finally found the beads they had been aging in this bottle for four years. They smell wonderful and I am sure they have some very good protective powers. I came up with the name "Incantaroma" because there is an incantation for protection and the dolls are wearing some of the aromatic beads. I love using color with my pieces because colors themselves have protective powers.

Lucid Dragon Dreams

Dragon Comments & Graphics

~Magickal Graphics~

Would that I could dream of a beautiful, powerful she Dragon of pale colors almost translucent perched high on a mountain top (dragon skin cannot feel cold you know) stretching my wings and belching, make that hiccuping fire (I am ladylike) before flying in circles above the fertile landscape of my life. I have focused on this picture and other dragon pictures trying in vain to have a Lucid Dream of Dragons and it just has not happened. Well, I guess I need more insight into Lucid Dreaming, another way of focusing on Dragons, or maybe if I created my own dragons it would spill over into my Lucid Dream scape. There is always something new to learn some new path to be trod a new way to look at the world through these imperfect eyes of mine. What new path are you walking upon today and which fork in the path are you thinking of taking?

Creative Nose Knows

When you allow the right nostril to breath clearly and slow the flow through the left nostril the right side of your body and also the left hemisphere of the brain are predominant, the mind is more receptive at this time. And then when I create I will try to keep the Right side of my brain stimulated. Oh, that reminds me I checked out the blog at "Son of Right Hemisphere Laboratory" and he is as creative if not more than ever by showing how his creativeness evolves, it is way sooo cool.
So I will try to sleep with my one right nostril open to start off tonight and see if it helps my Lucid Dreaming scheming. Who knows couldn't hurt. Lying on the left side or keeping a pillow under the left side is said to help open the right nostril.
What are some of the ways you find to inspire your creative side?

Child Within

There is always the child within to fall back on. Everyone has that child inside, you know the one. When you just have to splash in the puddles, when you get the urge to jump on that roller coaster and hold your hands up high and trust that the ride won't go off the tracks even though your stomach thinks it just might. Have a little fun today with that child inside and maybe introduce that child to your child over cookie dough or play dough. Everyone needs to let that inner child out once in a while and just have fun, have a good laugh see new things through those inner child eyes. What kind of things bring out the inner child in you?

Healing Path

A random choice of cards today turned out to be the "Healing" card. This card shows that a situation that has caused concern is on the mend. Well. that's good news and should pull everyone out of any funk they might find themselves in today. Visualizing the situation as healed no matter how hard that is can be a great starting point toward healing. Instead of focusing all your energy on what is wrong visualize what it would be like if the healing had already occurred. Visualization can help in many instances of both emotional pain and physical pain. I made a journal and wrote in the journal in red all the wrongs I believed were done to me by others and when I finished I read it from front to back. Then I built a fire (in a safe place) and burned it and said goodbye to it all with lots of creative ceremony as I watched the ashes and sparks fly away. It helped me release the negative hold those things had on me and helped me heal myself. Not that I am totally over some of those wrongs, but I don't think about them on a daily basis anymore. What are some of the ways you have helped yourself to heal, I am always ready to learn.

Fairy Friendly

I have been Fairy friendly for years and I just read about a type of fairy that I must have missed somewhere along the line. It is called a Sylphs, maybe the name is why it's just not as popular as some. This particular fairy or rather a Elemental of the air is the source of all life energy in the air around us. They cause tiny soft breezes and huge horrendous hurricanes and they are essential to our existence, so I have read. This being the inspiration for my newest creations of garden fairy nymphs that I am working on now. I like putting fairies on my crafts, my bags, my bracelets and my baskets. I therefore am fairy friendly except for those fairies that hide my purse, my keys and my shoes. For those fairies I have a little surprise to keep them in line at my etsy shop. Now those Sylphs, I will leave to others for I love the little sweet breezes and I'm not about to anger something that can blow a Hurricane or Tornado my way...been there done that.

Lucid Dream Queen

A funny thing happened on the way to my dream last night. I have been practicing my Lucid Dream techniques and I have been watching my Lucid Dream subliminal video lately. I keep telling myself if I do have a Lucid Dream I will "edit" the scenery around me so I will immediately be in Las Vegas. I suppose now it's lodged into my brain and now I can have a dream, not becoming aware that I am dreaming, so there is no Lucid Dream and I still end up in Las Vegas. What a trip. I have trained my dreaming brain to go to Vegas! In my dream I was showing someone around my home, which wasn't my home but a dream home and suddenly I said "and through this door is.....Las Vegas" and sure enough I opened the door to what should have been a bedroom and there was a Vegas casino. YES! It was such fun! Well, good night everyone I'm off to another adventure. Oh, is a link to the subliminal video on Lucid Dreaming, but don't expect it to work the first takes practice for some.

"MARRY ME" two little words that forever changes a "ME" into "US". The ring is a symbol of the Love that you will nurture and hold to your heart. Or for the guys out there what better way to present a ring to your one and only. And if you already have a jewelry box full of rings, what better way to display your rings and bracelets than a velveteen ring holder pillow.

As a celebration of our first home I planted a tree on my first anniversary in my new house, or rather I planted a twig. My husband thought I was crazy of course. As our married life together grew I could watch the tree grow.

I had my husband drive me around town until I saw the perfect Weeping Willow tree. I took a willow twig or small "switch" which is what my grandmother called them. I put the twig switch in a plastic cola bottle half full of water in the fall and keep it in your house. By spring the twig switch will have sprouted roots and you plant it.

I took two such twig switches one for my husband and one for me and them braided them together and then planted them. The tree will be stronger when two are wound together and will form an interesting tree because of the braiding. You can watch the two grow and become one tree, stronger because of the two who are now one.

Strange I am

I just love taking photo's of strange things, calling it abstract Art and giving it a name and then showing it again from a different view or upside down and calling it something new.

Water Nymph

I think I'll come back as a Water Nymph the next time around, I'll hang out at the local back woods pond or at a really nice waterfall. There will be water lilies in my hair and sea weed (can it be Malibu Beach instead) twining around my hair and legs and the water swirling above my head. At night I will follow the trail left on the water surface by the full moon above and see where it will lead me. With no other objective in mind but my own pure pleasure of going where ever I please in my watery world. My hair will never have a bad hair day, being curled by the waves and the ripples in the water. There will be no traffic jams but only the pretty colorful schools of little fish as they swim by me. My favored jewels will be that ring the beautiful lady lost while swimming, and I will wear it as a crown in my hair here in my water world where I will be forever tiny and a swift swimmer.

Break Winter's Hold

When you work a spell one thing that is always changed is you. Always be very, very sure that you want to cast that spell and that there is no malice involved. January is the first month of the year and other than December, the last month of the year, January is the most difficult to get through. You are "spinning" new resolutions, looking forward to new beginnings and looking back on what was.

As the first month of the year ends help yourself let go of anxiety by allowing the old worries rest. If it is a problem that someone else could handle, but you think you could do it better...just let it go and give them the gift of self reliance.

Mystical Magical Whimsical

Some mystical magical whimsical unknown person once said "Our perception of what's happening and what's really happening are two completely different things". This was a random pick of quotes chosen for today and no truer words were ever spoken. Our perception is usually colored by our past experiences and daily encounters and each persons perception is different than anyone else at any given time. Different people have different views on what is or is not normal, politically correct and acceptable.

I hope you enjoy the picture of my little lovely above. I call it a lovely because I think I am getting the hang of this advertisement thing, if I call it a lovely they don't throw an ad on my blog that competes with my little lovely. There is probably another way, but that's O.K. it's a good exercise in word association for me.

Alchemist Pouch

What do you use to carry your mystical magical potions, smudge sticks and other tools of the trade in. This bag, pouch or container should be as mystical as it's owner and as magical as the items it carries. Mystical but easy to access and easy to carry around with you so you can pull them out at a moments notice. I am constantly looking for new ways to use my recycled beads, jewelry pieces, bits of polished stones and all the other items I have rescued from annihilation and have allowed them to be reincarnated into a new life.

Incantaroma Protection

I decided to retake some photos of one of my altered action figures, and I think they came out pretty well. I like trying out new textures and colors and the older photo had a pattern to it which makes a confusing picture especially if the item has lots of texture and patterns itself. Some people have different ideas on taking photos and suggest a white or bland background but I am having so much fun experimenting. I have used my night gowns, my blouses, scarves, pieces of fabrics and anything else I can get my hands on. Now I have turned into a photoholic and can't wait till the next new item gets made so I can photograph it.

Cookoo's Nest

And how is YOUR Cookoo nest doing on this 17th day of the year 2010. What is it that really, really drives you crazy and turns you into that Jekyll to Hyde personality? I'll tell you mine. My husband, love him I do, but sometimes he challenges my sanity. He just HAS to ask questions...about everything and anything.

He goes into the kitchen and within 10 seconds (yes I have timed him) he has a question. And it's a question that I know if he thought about it for 2 minutes he could answer it himself. But he cannot help himself, and it is always a simple yes or no question. I finally put a paper plate in the kitchen and wrote the words "YES" on one side and the words "NO" on the other.

When he goes in and asks his question I tell him to look at the plate and decide. Did it work? NO! Now he asks questions that can't be answered with a simple yes or no.

Avatar Valentine Love

You are finally getting used to a new dawn, the dawn of Cyber tech, virtual dating sites and everything else which is done by computer in Cyber land with the use of an Avatar rather than done human face to human face. But you can still find love and connections can still made and if it is from a computer terminal maybe that is the safe way to go today in this world.

This is one of my altered action figures at my shop. I was trying to find another way to creatively use my recycled pieces and they each have evolved with their very own personality.

Oracle Card for Today

The Oracle Card I picked today is the "Retreat" card. This card does not mean to give up it just means that you need to take a break, take a deep breath because today is not the time to start something new. That is a difficult task for some since they are always focused on creating new things in their life, their craft and their work. So today instead of starting a new project, new craft, new chapter you could take the time to do something which gives your mind a rest and replenishes your soul. This can be anything in which you take great pleasure, that which makes you feel at peace within yourself. This can be anything from taking a walk in a nature setting, meditating or even a mindless walk through a mall just to lose yourself in the crowd. Try not try to think of the reason why you are there but just enjoy that you are.

Lucid Dream Bride

Isn't it a wonderful thing that you can choose any color you want for your wedding dress you see fit, instead of sticking with the traditional white of days gone by. You can choose the theme, the color, the place and the Honeymoon you wish and not worry about what "others" will think.

It is said that your unconscious mind is unable to understand and tell the difference between a feeling, or perceived event or a thought that is actually real or one that is imagined. That is one reason while in a dream you sometimes see something that absolutely cannot be real but are unable to see that it is not real like a flying elephant. But if you could train your mind to automatically question events by the statement "Is this a dream" you will do the same whether awake or unconscious. Once realizing that it is in fact a dream you are able to "edit" the dream sequence. Some will choose to change the elephant into a real elephant, delete the elephant altogether or as I do jump on the elephant with your groom and let it take you to a favorite vacation spot for your wedding. If you are looking for a bride in the photo at the top, you won't find it ...but then again maybe you will.

Twilight Vampire Tears

Twilight tears at Sundown,
Blood runs as midnight nears.
From your pale, pale neck
Comes blood red twilight tears.
by gothB4play

Sorry, that's all I could come up with in 10 minutes of trying to decide what to put on today's blog and last night I had some pretty weird dreams and could not or did not have the sense to realize I was dreaming and "zap" myself to Vegas for some fun. My husband had the same type of dreams, all about doom, death, dark days, smoke and ash everywhere. Maybe it was the moon, but the mood is so pretty I'd rather blame it on TV or the weather or even sun spots.

For all those Vampire Lovers out there here is a pretty little Victorian Cuff bracelet to hide those bite marks on the wrist. Check out the Blood Red Vampire Tears in my little shop.

Valentine's Day is only 34 days away and counting. After a while it gets a little old just getting "I love you" or another Valentine card over and over. This year break the mold and make people you love believe you put a lot of thought into the gift by finding a one of a kind unique gift to give. My elegant Velveteen Ring Holder Pillow would be a welcome change or a wonderful way to display that special gift or all those special gifts hiding in a box.

Son of Right-Hemisphere Laboratory

This is just too cool to pass up Son of Right-Hemisphere Laboratory: March 2009
It is just way to fun and creative. Every now and then I just need a big ole' chuckle and this blog is a great way to shake out a chuckle. And yes, I did post a photo of my own just scroll down.

Spooky Avatar

Avatar is the "Go see movie" there is no doubt about that. Strange spooky creatures are sure to inspire lots of Artist of every type for years to come. Just the name itself has a powerful pull because it's the alter ego of millions of people and that number is growing. Some have more than one Avatar depending on which community they happen to be visiting at that particular time. Some even have multiple personalities to go with these different Avatars. A very timid person may have a strong cruel looking Avatar with an extroverted personality. You can literally have any persona you want through your Avatar and then come back to reality with the click of the mouse.

Wedding cake topper

How many out there have waited for the year 2010 to get married. It just sounds like a good luck year to me to get married, start a new job or reinvent yourself. Maybe you will be the new "Mrs." you dreamed about, spending the rest of your life with that "other half" which will make you One. Or maybe that one person who will let you be yourself and love you for it.

The photo is a Glove Ring Holder Pillow which can be used to give a special ring to a special someone, or you could use it for the Wedding itself to carry the ring on at the ceremony. The link is for a cake topper Bride and Groom at my little shop, just click on it to visit me and my creations.

Robot Drawing Auctiona by appledyl on Etsy

Speaking of robots I just received an email and a picture of a water color and ink drawing of a robot done by a fellow etsy artist, he is new to etsy and I thought very worthy of a little bit of promotion on my part. I am still unemployed and can't buy anything from him but I thought I could put him on my blog and his art is pretty cool so you may want to take a look at a new artist. Maybe send him some much deserved encouragement and mentoring.

Maia/Feronia (Greco-Roman) is the Goddess of Fire who it is said ruled the element forces of growth and warmth, which also includes our "sexual heat" felt such compassion for this one little sorceress who has now come back to us from the depths where she was banished with some unusual cyber enhancements. You can click on the link below to see her if you wish. Yes, I am exercising my darker side today, but with good reason. I found this wizard at one of my favorite Thrift Museums yesterday and I fear that he is stronger than I realized at first. How could anybody want to discard him of their own free will. Perhaps his owner has passed over to the other side and his belongings were donated to this great Thrift Museum. If so, he has been waiting for the "right soul" to come along and free him from the midst of those other childish dolls and toys he was forced to share space with.

Oracle Card for 2010

The Oracle Card chosen for 2010 is the Card of Enthusiasm. I know I have a difficult task before me if I am to keep this thought in my mind above all thoughts of jobless rates, shootings on the news and everything else that happens on the morning news. So maybe I will just change my urge to watch news in the morning and save it for later in the day.

Norman Vincent Peale once said: Those who are fired with an enthusiastic idea and who allow it to take hold and dominate their thoughts find the new worlds open for them. As long as enthusiasm holds out, so will new opportunities.

Add to my New Years Resolutions: Enthusiasm in my everyday life, Enthusiasm when I get out of bed in the morning, Enthusiasm when I create and Enthusiasm when I think about each day every day all year long.

lucid Dream 2010

My first Lucid Dream of the year and what did I change a dream of working somewhere I really disliked into? First I always change or "edit" the place I am at so I changed it to Las Vegas. Not just because Las Vegas is a fun place to go, but I lived there for a while and it is one of the easiest "edits" I can do. A lot of people don't know it but about 10 miles to the west of Las Vegas is a place called "Red Rock" and I used to do a lot of hiking there. I keep trying to go to Red Rock when I get to Vegas but so far I haven't been able to get there, gotta keep practicing. The mind is a wonderful thing and I believe it should be used for creative purposes both awake and at sleep. Lucid Dreaming is such a fun adventure and I get to wake up the next morning and say "Guess where I went last night!!" Tomorrow I will draw a random Angel Communication Card and see what is in "the cards" for me or you for 2010.

There are two sides to a coin, you can't have light without some darkness, it must always be yin and yang to have a balance of the elements. This is a part of the process of growth, the dark and the light are both necessary and if we deny one or the other it is our ultimate loss. We hold our possessions close as we do our ideas and our grievances and only through letting go exploring new things, new ideas and new thoughts are we able to see beyond this small bit of consciousness we call our own.

Best of 2009

The best moment of 2009 for me was when Frankenbarry (Son of Right-Hemisphere Laboratory blog artist extraordinaire) purchased and then posted a picture of Guinevere Robot Queen in his blog along with an extremely kind and thoughtful *blush* article on the piece. It was heaven and I will never forget his kindness. 2009 was quite a struggle for me personally and a really tough year being one of the many unemployed I thought I was on a downward spiral. But no door is ever closed without another door being opened. So my vote for best blog of 2009 is Son of Right-Hemisphere Laboratory by Frankenbarry artist, cartoonist, writer, sketcher, creative Guru and more. You can see his blog by clicking the link below:
