The original Lilith:
"God then formed Lilith, the first woman, just as He had formed Adam. Adam and Lilith never found peace together; for when he wished to lie with her, she took offense at the recumbent posture he demanded. 'Why must I lie beneath you?' she asked. 'I also was made from dust, and am therefore your equal.' Because Adam tried to compel her obedience by force, Lilith, in a rage, uttered the magic name of God, rose into the air and left him"
Contrary to popular sources and myths, Lilith is not a vampire. She was recognized in many ancient cultures under a variety of different names and was seen as a symbol of wisdom, knowledge, independence, freedom of thought and of liberation for woman. The last is where the myth of her being "the first wife of Adam" stems from. So the story goes, Lilith refused gods laws about men being superior to woman and she proved this by being ontop during sexual intercourse. For her boldness and defiance, she was thrown out of "the garden" and then came her successo

And while I've been very creative (mostly jewelry or hair jewelry), I haven't taken any photos of my work. A shame, since I sold much of it to coworkers and now live in another state.

Yes, that's right. I've moved back to Arizona.

The move was... so... much... fun. Can't tell you. Nope, it was too much fun to share just now. And it's getting late, and I should sleep before having to head off to work.

Writing has taken a fun new turn with my best friend, and I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes. Experimenting with wiring stems on artificial flowers and wrapping said stems. Note to self: 22gage wire works better than 20gage... And while visiting the local JoAnn Fabric and Crafts store, had to remind myself to =not= buy supplies for a new set of experiments, namely, mask blanks. I saw some simply fabulous masks at the Renn Fair, and I really wanted to make some that would look even more fabulous, only I'm counting pennies to meet my bills this month and likely next; took a pay cut when I moved, darn it!

And while I was focusing hard on my cross-country move, i collected my first DD... for my rose tutorial! That darned thing now resides in more than 2,400 collections, and is my singular most popular work in my gallery. Over 2,400 favorites on it... and nearly 350 of those were from the day it made DD, of course. The number staggers me. I used to try and check out the complete galleries of everyone who faved it, but that's getting to be a lot harder to manage. I'm settling for trying to reply to all those (comparatively few) people who posted comments on it instead.

I did make new earrings in honor of St. Patty's Day, but I'm not yet set up for taking photos of anything. (shrugs) Maybe next week that will be green to go.

Hi! How are you?

Doing real good, been just hanging about. I got into a fandom called Katawa Shoujo, I am sure you can tell considering my latest stuff. The kids are well, and so is my better half.
Catgoyle Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
Heh... no, I can't tell, because this is the first I've heard of Katawa Shoujo. But I'm glad to hear that you and the rest of your family is doing well. And I'm slow in replying. Slooooooooooow...

(smiles) I look forward to it! I've made some earrings based on that braided style I saw you using. Need to photo and post them to share. Shall I send you a link when I do?
magpie-poet Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011
Please! That's one of the best things about da, running with styles till they become your own then passing them on :D
Catgoyle Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2011
(nods) I'm debating on the "black licorice" ones I've rolled up, curious about how they might look. We'll see!
