I've been making dreamcatchers for a while now, and it is interesting to see how my personal style has developed from when I first started.I've begun to put more of myself into it, and have begun making my own beads from clay. It's really a lot of fun, and is more satisfying than always buying them. I was on one of my nature hunts, to get a branch,and on it I found a big, sturdy thorn that is perfect for making the holes in the beads....I thought that was neat! My only problem is that after I paint them ( and I have made alot that are ready to be painted ), finding a way and the space to prop them up so that they can dry...you should see my dining room table! ( Needless to say, with all my stuff on the table, I eat at the coffee table in the living room ) I am really enjoying myself....
Where I used to live (Round Rock, TX), there was a creek where ducks hang out. In 1996 there was a group of about seven of them, but in 1997, the group dwindled down to three, then to two. One is black, and the other is a mix of tan, white, and brown. When they shed their feathers, I'd walk around and pick up the ones I can use in the things I make. Rather a lengthy process sometimes, but fun too. I also fed them while I was there.....
Well, as you might have seen on my first page, I live in Anaheim, California now. When I came here after spending a week in Oklahoma (It broke my heart when I had to leave), I was afraid that the American Indian community here would be rather small; Well, I was surprised! It is much larger than I had thought, and I meet people from all different tribes. Definitely a nice albiet unexpected surprise!.....................more as time goes on.....
~~~~I offer you this prayer, a gift from the Lakota Indian Chidren at Red Cloud Indian School~~~~
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me! I am small and weak, I need your
strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in Beauty, and make my eyes
ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make me wise, so that I may understand the
things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my
brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with
clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you
