Welcome! I’m Denise—a gentle fae artist living with my beloved husband and son in the wilds of the most Northern part of Washington.
a snuggly day to heal our colds. #boybun
my handsome love is building us his very first picket fence.
well happy birthday to me. #salishpuppy #twoyearsold

weird science with @mistymountaingirl ... love their flow.
"The creative process is motion. It is active, vital, difficult, painful, stimulating and sensuous. The results of motion can be viewed narrowly, as in relation to creating a specific product, or it can be viewed more broadly, as in shaping the eternal life and vision of a woman. There is value in looking at a woman's creative process, both in the narrow and the broader context, for that is where a woman finds joy, sensuousness, and wholeness within herself and her world." ~ Linda Firestone, Awakening Minerva
#tbt ... teen-ish me with @lethasandison (she just found this!) ... redwood camp, sometime in the early 80's. #hotpinkvisorsrock
what's left after my eyes could no longer draw a tear and my body tight with muscles that held onto too much last night. grieving something that once was and allowing myself to resist change just for a moment. grateful to not be alone in this and for those that allow me to process like a little girl digging her feet in before the clarity, strength and sage wisdom of mySelf set in. also posting the side of my face that i look away from out of dislike because a dear soul @elanakilkenny used all her braves today and I will hold her hand and do the same.
took a big bite and got a message of love. so needed this today.
there are so many ways to play with pigs. one of them being putting sticks on their back and seeing how long they will stay there. #villagelife #chuckanutkunekunes #abbottthepig @liloettejane
I don't think she'll stop trying to convince them that they should play like puppies. #pigsandpups #meadowthepig #sisterthepig #salishpuppy #chuckanutkunekunes @liloettejane
I was tagged by one of my bosom friends @janaecharlotte to share "What I love now" ... in my very right now, I am loving how meditative it is to slowly brush out my son's teeny dreads that keep knotting in the back of his head. Since he's so sensitive, I have to go ever so slow and gentle and if I chant or hum, it helps soothe him and he doesn't want me to stop. I had lots of practice brushing my whole head of dreads out 3 years ago. Very meditative.
Yesterday I was asked by the lovely @mamamooncrafts what immune boosting goodies I give my son when he is fighting a cold/flu. Here are a few that I offer him a bit throughout the day :: doTerra flu bomb (roller I made that I rub on his feet), elderberry syrup, Hylands sniffles & sneezes homeopathic tablets, colloidal silver drops under tongue, doTerra Breathe & OnGuard in diffuser, doTerra breathe throat drops, Source Naturals Herbal Kids wellness tincture...and lots of tender love and attention. #doterra
joining in on Day 15 of #thedailymiracle by @cjust ::: a daily ritual that nourishes me is drinking my morning creamy coffee. i somehow create a space within the whirl of our morning where i can sit and sip. even if it's just one sip, one breath in, one deep exhale...it is a form of loving, nurturing mySelf and grounding for my day to be.
nursing a wee fever today with lots of immune building goodies ... oh and permission for me to curl up near him and watch Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street.
