Little Sister of the Abalone Turtle Women - Art Doll

Little Sister of the Abalone Turtle Women learns not only about the glory of being a Woman, but finds sage wisdom from the Turtle Women. This special clan of women offers support and guidance to one another, walking hand in hand through each of their spiritual journeys.

Little Sister is learning to keep a balanced spirit, how to honor her emotions, but not let them completely dictate her decisions. She is recognizing the connection of head and heart, "feelings" and "knowing". She is on a path of living her life for her own highest good, and learns each day the importance of putting her needs first.

The Abalone Turtle Women carry special wisdom learned from the Turtle - about the Feminine, Motherhood, Healing, and Growth. They carry Abalone as a reminder of emotional balance.

Dragonfly Folk Art Doll - Lady Dragonfly and the Winds of Change

She finally understood, after all this time, the best way to maneuver within the Winds of Change. In fact, she learned the difference between moving against them and moving within them. In the past when those winds would blow in, confronting her in the face and pushing her backwards, she would defiantly push back. She struggled with the winds, each time upset that they were shoving her away from her chosen path. Each time she would seemingly be further and further away from the destination.

One day when her defenses were down,and frankly she was just too tired for the fight, she allowed the winds to embrace her. She didn't struggle against them. She floated within the breeze, still in control of herself but now guided. 

She let go of her fears and trusted in the change of course, later finding that the destination was truly in a much better place than she could have imagined.
She learned that we do have a sense of control - in manifesting - where and what we want to be, but we don't always have control on how we get there. She now understands that believing in her self, and that she is a part of something bigger, can help pave the way so that the course is not as difficult as she might have surmised.

This is the inspiration behind "Lady Dragonfly and the Winds of Change", a contemporary folk art doll by Jeanne Fry which can be found here

Starlina Dragonfly and Keeping your Light from going Dim

Starlina stopped to rest on a dahlia stem. She needed to pause for a moment and put things in to perspective.

All of this 'busy busy busy", flutter here and flutter there, was catching up with her. She was the same amount of busy, but found that by the end of the day she wasn't finishing what she needed to. 
Well.....that's wasn't entirely true....she wasn't finishing what she needed to 
for Her
Dragonfly Beaded Art Doll by Jeanne Fry

When she gazed down at her reflection in the stream, she noticed that her "light" wasn't shining as bright as normal. It was markedly more dim, and this would just not do.
It had taken quite some time to become who she was, for her colors to come into their maturity. Her energy had always been a force to be reckoned with, yet now she felt the drain. She had fallen out of balance.
While she had always given freely of her time helping others, she knew that doing so required daily maintenance to achieve a healthy balance. And here she was....feeling dim and exhausted. 
Thank goodness she knew how to rectify this in fairly short order. All it takes is  "loving self"....loving self enough to draw your boundaries...loving self enough to maintain those boundaries...and loving self enough to say "no". 
Deep breath in, Starlina readied herself to fly...this time back toward her heart path. 
Fly Starlina, Fly.

Mama Muse a Whimsical and Vibrant Spirit Doll to Inspire the Creative Soul

There are times as artists that we take ourselves TOO seriously. The fearful side of our humanity can  interfere in our processes, tricking us into worrying about perfection instead of enjoying the journey. Mama Muse brings a much needed nurturing energy...an energy that suggests instead of worrying how others perceive your art - to focus on how it makes You feel.
She urges you to not think about the end result, the marketing and the sale, but to instead think of your art resonating with another's soul and it's contribution to the world. 
When Mama Muse is near she brings an infinite flow of creative energy, ideas atop ideas, of new works, new mediums, and inspiration to continually master your skills. 
Mama Muse is infused with every color of the rainbow and ideas that break through our societal divides. She carries the wisdom of the elders, and the exuberance of the youth.

She inspires one to color OUTside of the lines, to mix stripes and polka dots, to wear purple in their hair, to leave the dishes until later, to explore, to be adventurous, to learn by doing, and to leave the inner critic at the door.
