Meet Maso

Here is the latest of the poppets I have created. 
I learned the technique from Kecia Deveney and have fallen in love with allowing these new characters come into being.

This is my new friend with his face painted.


And here is the complete persona, Maso.


Maso is kind of a little demon. (See his horns?) 

He is that part of us that does naughty, slightly mean things every once in a while, but spends time regretting and feeling guilty about his actions later.

 You know, like when you take that parking place even though you see the other car coming because, hell, you're in a hurry too today! Or like when you don't tell your waitress that she forgot to charge you for your second drink. She was kind of slow after all.


Maso doesn't always do what's right. But like all of us on this chaotic, bittersweet, bumpy road we call life, 


he's trying hard to improve, and live the best little well lived life he can. 


Maso joined my other poppets on the shelf in the studio. 
I'm starting to imagine their adventures when the house is dark and I am sleeping  away in my night sweat drenched bed.

Happy Thursday, Beautiful Ones!

Contemplating My 2016 Word of the Year

I’m still thinking on what word I would like to focus on for 2016.

I didn’t do that practice for 2015 and I missed it.

I think I will combine the practice of letting go of 2015

by throwing a rock in the ocean inscribed with what I need to let go of,

and picking up a new rock

and inscribing it with what I would like to see more of in 2016.
 
 
I know where I will be keeping my intention Word of the Year Rock!

I used to have these sweet little porcelain boxes that I customized every year and offered in my etsy shop,

but the supply has run out.

So I came up with these sweet little stitched pouches and an amulet pouch necklace as a replacement.
 

The pouches can lie on your inspiration altar or by your vision boards and hold your Word of the Year intention beautifully.


 
My preference is the amulet pouch necklace,

 
that you can wear around your neck
and let your Word of the Year intention stay close to your heart at all times.
 
 
The pouch and necklace will be custom made for you, reflecting your favorite color and using
 
eco-dyed 100% wool felt, and a mix of silk and beaded bits. It will also include your Word of the
 
Year Rock for 2016 inscribed on a New Hampshire sea rock just for you by the Rock Fairy.
 
These are available until the end of February 2016 in the Queen of Arts Studio Etsy shop.
 
May the New Year bring us all to where we need to be, Beautiful Ones !

Rock My World - “Notice.” – December 10, 2015

IMG_4175

Rock My World rock wisdom for these days when chaos and fear threaten our well-being :

 

Notice.

 

Notice the sensation of the wind on your face.

Notice the way the sunlight enters between the slats of your bedroom blinds.

Notice the way some of your dog’s whiskers point upwards like a Salvador Dali moustache.

Notice the way your in breaths are cool on your nostrils, while your out breaths are warm.

And as you notice,

come back to this moment.

This is the one moment that we have for sure.

What peace, comfort and healing can be

in

this

one moment

of

noticing.

 

 

And if you need some more inspiration to help you get there, read this post from the amazing Jen Loudon : The Antidote to Imposed Haste.

 

Big present moment love from the Rock Fairy.

Rock My World – be real – December 4, 2015

IMG_4055[1]

Today’s rock wisdom :

“be real.”

 

Because being anything else just doesn’t help.

Forget what people may think.

Forget the expectations that you may have or they may have.

Be real.

Then, the real, true living and loving can happen.

Keeping it real, in all it’s messy, beautiful, soulful real-ness.

Big love from the Real Rock Fairy, Beautiful Ones.

Rock My World – Scatter Your Dark – December 3, 2015

IMG_4043[2]

The dark is so very thick sometimes.

Some days, you have to push really hard to scatter your dark.

But Love can do it.

Let's do it.

Shine your love lights, beautiful Ones.

The world needs us so very badly.

 

This blog post had some good dark scattering ideas that inspired me this morning:

Fifteen Things for When the World is Shitty and Terrifying.

 

Love,

The Rock Fairy
