And then there were four...Meet Maybe.

Meet Maybe.

Maybe is curious and open to change, but has a hard time getting off the fence and making a decision.

She's definitely a Libra. She is most comfortable sitting beneath a tree, or at the beach, pondering...

She's always around when you need some deep seated thinking.

And then there were four.

The balancing act continued...

The filling up of my hand made journal continues.
My friend Fonda gave it to me and I find its size and variety of paper pages very inspiring! Thanks, lovely one!

Today's two page spread is split by another inserted page. 

This being is on the first page. 
Something about a balancing act is playing out...

And it continues on the second page. 
Kind of reflects my quest for balance these days. 
Hormones are a huge challenge, as this perimenopause/menopause transition takes place. I keep taking deep breaths, trying different remedies, telling myself I'm not really crazy, and getting lots of support from my women friends who have been through it before me. 

This too shall pass. 😉
And on the other side of the coin, life is pretty good right now. Soaking up the sweet moments of joy wherever I can.

Hope you're finding plenty of joyful moments too, Beautiful Ones!

Love and light!

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 !
