A meteor or a sleepy planet, your choice.


"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze that it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." 
- Jack London

Fall Dreams by Laurie Rohner
In the last few weeks I have fought with myself as I think we all are. Living life has become a challenge for the average person and if you listen to the media I guess we are all Doomed.  You know the feeling. It sits in your belly waiting for you to let your guard down and out it jumps. The little imp named Fear, Anxiety to some. You become heavy and your light starts to dim. Every thing you try to do becomes a chore and the thrill and excitement of being alive dwindles. Sounds pretty depressing, but stop breathe and send the imp running.
I like to read self-help books and listen to life coaches who promote solutions. Unfortunately many say their method will make you wealthy, promote abundance, or let you achieve your purpose and they never deliver. Yes it works for them because you just gave them your cold cash to find out how. When the results prove to be less than what was stated you are told you did not get to the source of what was blocking you from being fill in the______ . I find this really infuriating and I am sure you do too. What I have learned from these people is one small thing. We are what we think we are.
Look in the mirror I mean look at yourself hard and long. What image do you see? Think about it and go get some paper and pen. Go back to the mirror and as you look at your image jot down the thoughts and images that pop into your head. Finished? Now go sit down somewhere and list what was negative and positive on two pieces of paper. On a third piece of paper write down who you want to be. Take the first 2 sheets of paper and burn them and as they burn say to your self these were just an illusion of who I am. Take the third piece of paper and put it up on the mirror and say this is me and every day I am a better me. See life is nothing more than our own perception of an illusion and at any given time we can reclaim who we are at the core of our being. Our spirit.
I would definitely rather be a superb meteor then a sleepy and dull planet. That's just me.

A Princess Chair for the Woodland Fairies.

I am often amazed when inspiration hits and this chair confirms my feeling. I was working on a fairy house and had dropped part of a small log. When I went to pick it up it had landed in the middle of my ribbon and twigs. I picked up the log and at once knew what to do, Woodland Fairy Chair with a ribbon mimicking water cascading down. As I glued and cut the bits to assemble the story formed of a whimsical Fairy Princess gleefully playing by the fountain and of course she would need a chair to rest on.
I also think they are great for table setting favors for girly birthdays or even the woodland wedding table setting. Contact me to custom order your very own princess chairs.
Interested in buying the Princess Woodland Chair please visit LRStudio.etsy.com the new Between the Weeds Shop or click on the image below.

New Woodland Fairy House at LRStudio.

Custom Unique Quality Imaginative a Delight describe my whimsical Fairy Houses and I have been busy with making fairy house rooms and fairy houses. This is the first room and is posted ready to buy at LRStudio.etsy.com and many more to come. There is something about these rooms that spark the inner child to come out and play. They make great gifts for the little fairies in your family too.

I constructed this fairy house room on a rattan paper plate holder which I discovered in the cabinet. I knew I could find a way to use them for my fairy friends. I had made the cabinet and couldn’t find the right setting for it. I also knew that the fairies would bring the idea or inspiration together for me when the time was right. As always they never disappoint.
The shells cut out leaves and pebbles I found in the corner of a little shop and I knew I had to have them. I brought them home and the next day everything fell into place. I really think this fairy room is very special and any age would simply love it.

Use a Creation Keepsake Box to attract what you want in your life.

Another beautiful Creation Keepsake Box painted with a cute little wren chirping away on its branch. An adorable birdhouse sits in the tree ready to help create more lovely birds of nature. I think using nature as a theme for my creation boxes is a great way to boost the energy to assist your passions into becoming reality. It is up to you to create what it is you are passionate about. Grab onto that feeling, feel it in your body, and bring it forward. Dump all those wrongly learned beliefs about yourself not being worthy or unlovable and cast those feelings into a big bonfire and let them turn to ashes. Wrap them up and happily give them back to the universe, they do not belong to you any longer. Now create your dreams through your passions.
