So I went for a 3 mile walk. I put on some pretty jewelry. And I let the stress go. What have you done for YOU today to reduce your stress? Because it doesnt go with your outfit either!
Every purchase you make from me, I promise makes a REAL person do a happy dance! Those purchases provide diapers for my daughter, school clothes and supplies for my oldest 2 kids, gas in my vehicle to be able to go to the store and take them to school and drs appointments.
Each purchase of one of my jewelry pieces allows me to stay home with the baby instead of having to work 40+ hours at an outside job just to pay for childcare. (Around here, I would be lucky to find a job that would pay more than childcare costs.)
So I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that helps and supports me. Because without you, I wouldn't be able to give my kids the life that they have. AND I wouldn't be able to bring smiles to strangers with my jewelry nor would I be able to meet so many amazing people! So thank you!!
The symbolic meanings associated with the fox are:
Physical or mental responsiveness, increased awareness
Cunning; seeing through deception; call to be discerning
Ability to find your way around, to be swift in tricky situations
Affinity with nocturnal activities and dream work

And who I am is pretty bad ass, if I do say so myself! For those who don't know me, my name is Traci and I am the main jewelry designer at The Fae Imagination. I am a single mom of 4, 2 girls and 2 boys. (My oldest of each work with me in the business. It's great bonding time!) I love to read romance novels, so sudoku puzzles and play trivia games. (I've been called a walking encyclopedia of random facts!!)
I am an Aries and definitely have the temper of one! I have no idea what color my hair is naturally, since I've been dying it yearly since 8th grade. So... something like the last 15 years! My favorite color to dye it is a deep, rich red to match my temper. But, the one upside to my infamous temper is that it burns out quickly!! And then I'm right back to the good ole fun loving me!
I'd love to know more about you!!! What is something most people wouldn't know about you? A flaw that isn't actually a flaw? (like my temper) Tell us in the comments below!!!
Only 15 weeks until Halloween!!!! Samhain customs cut off date is October 1, which is only a little under 11 weeks away!!! Who's excited for the fall??
I can speak from personal experience that this is a vital piece of advice if you want to succeed!! When you come from a place of pure emotion, it is a wildfire waiting to happen. I'm not saying never to come from your emotions, but temper the decisions with rationale and logic.
Did you know that I do custom orders? Feel free to message me today!! Christmas is only 23 weeks away!!
I'm saying this daily. And I'm going to keep saying it until you give in and decide to be YOU!! No apology needed to be yourself. It's your body. Your life. Your happiness. Forget what everybody else wants you to be. Who the hell are they to tell you how to live anyway? They ain't being their selves unapologetically. So forget them!
On the outside, you might think I’m overly serious or quiet, but just below the surface you might be surprised to discover I’m actually quite loud! It’s true...and you wanna know a secret? It makes a better jewelry designer because I can get into the minds’ of my customers and serve them in a better way. I can listen well and use what I hear to bring out the loudness hiding inside! I’d love discover something new about you, so let me know in the comments below!
Wanna know a great way to do that?? Buy her a gift for no reason. And then clear your schedule for an evening, give her the gift and spend some quality time together!!! Curl up on the couch, watch some Netflix and binge on some popcorn. Or maybe go to the park and watch the wildlife or go for a hike.
My bestie and I go hiking for a couple hours every Saturday morning. He lets me know I am his priority by willingly getting up early on his day off, then wrangling my boys while we walk a mile and a half through the woods. And when we walk over a mile to go to the lake. Or 2 miles to pick up trash and cans off the side of the road. These aren't things he has to do. But he does them (without TOO much complaining) because that's how he shows me I'm a priority.
I'll be doing a blog post on some cheap/free date ideas later this week. Feel free to drop your ideas in the comments below!!
Have you looked through our available items yet? You can find them in the albums section of our Facebook Page, The Fae Imagination. Go, take a look!! then come back here and tell me what your favorite item(s) are!!
Be you. Be unapologetically you.
Rise and grind, everybody! I’m so pumped to take on this week, working hard at my business school studies, and being the best darned jewelry designer I can be! [Also, I may have had a little too much coffee today, so I’m pretty convinced I’m unstoppable!] How are you getting ready for your week??
Stop it. Stop apologizing for being who you are!! Learn to celebrate it and express it creatively!! I can help. Ask me how below!!
An ode to my coffeetable: Oh, coffeetable, thank you for your constant support (literally). I know I should keep you cleaner most days, and I shouldn’t leave empty cups of coffee, tea or wine on you, but I know you’ll forgive me. Why? We create magic together. Our clients love our jewelry designs, but it wouldn’t be possible without spending endless hours with you.
I am not everyone's cup of tea. matter of fact, I am probably not ANYONE'S cup of tea. And I'm okay with that. I'm more like a shot of whiskey anyway. I'm rough and sometimes hard to swallow, but once I'm in your system, I make you feel great!
And that's how my jewelry works too! It allows you to express yourself unapologetically. It allows you to be who you really are. And some people may be turned off by it, and that's OKAY!! Because the right people, those with a taste for the rough cut, will be the ones to appreciate it and love it.
So tell me. Are you a cup of tea or a shot of whiskey??
What would you tell yourself if you had the chance to go back 10 years? In 2008, I was one year into living in Oklahoma, in a hell that would become one of the most defining times in my life.
I was 19 and being abused every day in every way possible by a man I thought loved me. I wish I could go back in time and tell that ten-years-ago self that "You are stronger than you think. You are not a tree. You can move. You do not have to submit to someone else's plan for your life. You are your own boss. He doesn't love you. Love doesn't hurt. Now put your heels on, boss up and handle this bullshit!"
I learned that lesson eventually, but think of the time I’d have saved and the hurt I could have avoided! What would you say?
I am always looking for new ideas!!! So dont be shy and drop your ideas in the comments below!!
Here's a short demo of the Infinity Rose fidget toys I make. These are perfect for children and adults alike that suffer from anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, etc.
My 5-year-old son is special needs. He was diagnosed in Dec 2017 with ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. He has an overabundance of energy and when not direct constructively, he becomes very dangerous not just to himself but to others as well. When I introduced one of these into his life, I saw a miracle happen.
For the first time in 3 years, he was fully capable of being left alone in a room with his siblings without worry. He would finally sit still for more than 30 seconds. He is not just less energetic, he is calmer. And he even asks for his toy now when he's feeling stressed or overwhelmed. This toy was a life changer!! DM me today for more information or to purchase one.
The darkness is where I met my demons. I learned to play with them instead of run in fear.
The darkness is where I confronted my deepest darkest fears and truth. I learned to be strong and to overcome.
The darkness is where I learned to appreciate both the dark and the light. It is where I found myself.
Last night, I was inspired by the sunset. It reminded me of flames licking at the sky. And this is what I turned that inspiration into! A fire inspired Infinity Rose fidget toy! What's inspiring you today?
I have many animal guides. But I have 3 that I see the most: a black wolf, a black panther and an owl. I rarely see ravens, but they are also one of my guides. I have learned to heed their teachings carefully and quickly.
