THERE IS ONLY ONE OF YOU IN ALL TIME

hey beautiful creatures:)))

first 
(before me starting the rant...)
 i wanna say: 

GRATTIS PΓ… FINASTE DAGEN MOSTER
JAG Γ„LSKAR DIG
my dearest love and too my aunt/ godmother has her special day today, the 13th of february is her day, a day she arrived to our planet earth:)

i am starting week 3 with the artist's way (have i mentioned this???). i can highly highly recommend it as an artist, or rather as a human being that has been entering our world called earth.

there is a vitality, a life force,
an energy, a quickening, that
is translated through you into
action, and because there is only
one of you in all time, this expression
is unique. and if you block
it, it will never exist through any
other medium and will be lost.


there is only one of you in all time

the artist's way makes sure you create morning pages ( i call them afternoon pages and i only require myself to create/ do one page), these has been tremendously wonderful since they help me to clear my head and i understand what needs to be done every single day, or rather what are the important things to get done. it's a relief really.

other from that, still adjusting. finding..getting to know...exploring my forest called epping. yesterday i finally found the church within it. i met both the priest and the organist:))) such lovely ones. i am to go back for the service ( i was there way early). every morning i am meeting such deer's;0) literally. started reading/ listening to the book "miss peregrine's home for peculiar children" and it is pure enchantments. i completely understand the reason why tim burton turned it into a movie. i am yet to view this magic, but happy to read the book first to involve my own imagination:)))

also, i am building my own world. i have yet to name it but of course it is part of my faerie tales of violette one. maybe help me with this important decision? this whole project is an homage to so many brilliant ones ( will speak more about this in our dear future). and its a message i wanna convey because we in our day and age need more of

faith hope love

don't you agree?

for the first time in my life i am really ( nightmares reality) worried about our planet. not only the horrific things that are happening in regards to global warming and waste of all kinds.....but of such anger that has been building up in various places around our planet. as the dear rob bell talks about, we are one body! as the supper of jesus...the bread & the wine to share. the bread is our body. lots of small bodies in a larger body. me you us nature animals and such magic, we are all one body including society/ politics and such other issues.

let's celebrate joy & justice in a way of faith hope love.

i am planning new works which are fine art projects, simultaneously i am too re-working some old self-portraits to have me learn some new, or maybe i should say old mixed with new techniques:)))

here are a couple of them:

the child bride
the strawberry girl
a tiny blog post

the outfit  post to be seen

playing playing playing:)))
learning!
magic joy
always

i am a dream
versions:)))

the i am a dream is me working with a specific texture  (and me working obsessively with all kinds of textures for my body or works)i captured in the forest of epping.

 my obsession with textures has come via the lovely sarah gardner and her book art beyond the lens. thanks sarah for sharing such inspirational knowledge of texutures, photography and photoshop:) i am no where near the perfection she is inspiring me to create in the future...but a start is good enough for me:))))

dress found at blondie/ absolute vintage

FORGET YOURSELF!

develop interest in life as you see it; 
in people, things, literature, music
-
the world is so rich, 
simply throbbing with 
rich treasures,
beautiful souls
and
interesting people.
forget yourself!


i remind myself of this every hour of the day, to forget myself. to devour the world and its astonishing beauty. every single time when i have been in recovery, this is what has helped me back to joy. every single time!

also
 i am really finally learning how to live in this present moment. 
i guess by necessity

because:

now = good wonderful

yesterday was such pain
such painful helplessness memories

tomorrow might bring sadness
but we hope for joy

now = beauty safety:)

i am so grateful to finally have a home again, a safety place to come back to after adventures. i miss sweetness tremendously(she is part of a tiny documentary i created from my former life in east dulwich) and i am hoping to get a kitty of my own soon:))) i am too happy to be in epping, the forest is simply put magic! it has been an adjustment though that is still kind of very difficult, a lot of sadness of what did happen. maybe i'll share more in the future!

 every single morning  though, i meet a deer family in the forest of epping:))) sadly i seem to scare them, but when they have run away a bit, they all stop and stare at me and i then take my moment to say good morning:))) i SO HOPE they one day will recognize my voice and just feel the love coming from me.

below 
 some images from my house. still figuring it all out, i definately need more furniture to put my books and art materials in/ on. all has its own time, i am to be patient:)

years of creating
years of evolving
years of learning
...
the magic of a journey

a calling of angelic joy

something whispers
come come
dear human child
this
feels so far away
yet
still so close
a faerie trying to be heard
seen
sitting
 on the rainbow
she say's
come be my magic
come be my joy
come sing with the
angels
come join in 
for an eternity
of
unconditional love

the above "come bee my magic" fashion editorial was created over the course of 3-4 years (2012-2015). each girl is its own story with its own name but each one of us does create a whole, a faerie whole:) right? so this is "come bee my magic".  for me, bee my magic, was a journey of  developing my sense of self and the direction on how my work was going. 
i found my voice!
πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

anyways
..
happy monday beautiful creatures:)))

how was your weekend?
 mine was different than how i had planned it since i injured my right leg last week. so had to rest as much as possible, i had magnesium flake baths 3 days in a row and put magnesium oil on topically as well. today the swollenness is allmost gone thank goodness!!! so could have my usual magic morning walk:))) and next weekend i will be able to devour my ballet classes again.

tomorrow = art class and i am to continue work on these 3:)
these are part of an endless source (pile) of mixed media works in progress...!!!

I MUST GO SEEK SOME DEWDROPS HERE, AND HANG A PEARL IN EVERY COWSLIP'S EAR. I SERVE THE FAERIE QUEEN - SHE ENCHANTEDLY TWEEDLED

and i serve the fairy queen, to dew her orbs upon the green. the cowslips tall her pensioners be: in their gold coats spots you see; those be rubies, fairy favours, in those freckles live their savours: i must go seek some dewdrops here, and hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear. farewell, thou lob of spirits; i’ll be gone: our queen and all her elves come here anon.

i am finally starting to feel like i am settling in here in epping, essex😊 
all mornings start in epping forest & then a lot of them ends up at starbucks where i have recently devoured all my faerie tale books. i am utterly surrounding myself with faeries. i am creating kitty faeries, staring at faerie art, watching magic movies etc etcπŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ˜
of course seeing the nutcracker and the sugar plum faerie for the first time live on new years has had some impact. an obsession with the otherworldly magic of ballet:))) 

me at starbucks:)

my home
still sorting various art works of mine!
