      And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.--Anais Nin

    Proverbs

    • I am Me!
      'I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it...I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By doing so, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that I do not know ...but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which Idiscarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me and I am Okay.' --Virginia Satir
    • ~~~Tell IT!~~~
      "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
    • (~~GOOD CHARACTER~~)
      Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece--by thought, choice, courage, and determination.--J. Luther
    • (~~IN A STILL, SMALL VOICE~~)
      Give her of the fruit of her hands and let her own works praise her in the gates. ************************
    • (~~MAKE THIS DAY COUNT!~~)
      If one advances confidently in the direction of her dreams and endeavors to live the life she has imaGINA'd, she will meet with success unexpected in common hours. (Thoreau)

    • To Be!! Lived Daily
      The fact that the adult American Negro female emerges a formidable character is often met with amazement, distaste and even belligerence. It is seldom accepted as an inevitable outcome of the struggle won by survivors, and deserves respect if not enthusiastic acceptance. Maya A. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When you have confidence, you can have fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things.--Joe Namath

    Girl! You Better Tell It!

      You go girl! Love it. You make Crochet look good.

      Is that you in the photo to the left on the main screen? You are the Crochet Queen.

      I love the way you use large type, colors, bold text, and happy chics and movin' pics.

      Linkin' n winkin' from the quilt at Mandarin (it's stored at http://www.mandarindesign.com/2005_12_01_archive.html and posted every now and then).

      It's fun to see you having fun, and your entire place looks like a crochet fun house.

    • NEXSTITCH Summer 2005 Edition

      Blogger: Gina Renay

      Updates: Every Other Day

      Pics: A Ton Style, and a whole lot of it. You've never seen anything quite like this before.

      Gina is the mastermind behind the fashion-tabulous, poetic blog called, "Awed." Her photo album displays an array of original, creative collections which are sure to provide inspiration and motivation.

      She ardently tests the boundaries of crochet with a conglomerate of updated generational styles, from early 1910's-esque high waistline, decorative boutique dresses to 1950's matching secretarial jacket and skirt combinations to modern reconstructed, abstract apparel. Interspliced amongst those are several designs featuring bold, afro-centric patterns. All of her designs showcase an attention to detail.

      With a flaire for the unorthodox, Gina's styles are haute, haute, haute!
