Ode to Little Miss SunShine...

packages in the mail
are just the best
(well honestly anything that come via the mail box is a treat to me)

especially those from a special lady
named Allison
over at

Allison truly carries a piece of the Sun with in her
this come out in her many creations...
in leather,

these are the hawk wing cuffs
that she crafted for me
one for myself
one for a bestie


"Hawks are visionaries and messengers. As a totem they help to open the higher chakras so that we may hear and see the visions and messages that Spirit and the Universe are always sending our way. There is never a moment when the Universe is not trying to get a message through to us but we are so often too busy or unaware of what it is we need to be watching for! Hawk helps us to not only be aware that we are receiving a message but how to interpret them. The realm of symbols is also the realm of Hawk for Hawk is able to soar high above the earth to soar on the breath of Spirit, to commune with Spirit and thus understand through the intuitive level what the message means and with their keen eyesight, how to implement it once they return to earth through seeing the broader picture below.
Many of the messages Hawk may bring are about freeing yourself of thoughts and beliefs that are limiting your ability to soar above your life and gain a greater perspective. If one remains earthbound, then the possibilities of life are limited! It is this ability to soar high above to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture that is one of the aspects of Hawk medicine that makes it so valuable.'

One of my greatest joys of this community
is finding talented women who walk deep within their craft
pouring soul and spirit into their art
and then offering it up to others 
who can bask in it glow...

a bright warm light in this world

in their life

Love and Light
