Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

It couldn't have come at a better time....

I won...I won...

It is a blogger award, and this one is really special for me because it came from Sandra, a Writer who Weaves a Tale. She is a published author, and I love reading her blog. She really does weave some wonderful tales there, and reading her blog is something I do when I am looking to get away from the usual FB and promoting things that I do on the computer. It sit back, relax, and enjoy her writing. 

Sandra is a very talented weaver as well, and her shop has the most beautiful scarves, necklaces and wraps, plus handbags as well. She is an artistic and creative lady, who really has a way with words. As I am trying to make writing a bigger part of 'the Raige', to receive this from her is really an honor. And that it came 20 days into NaBloWriMo, where I am now struggling to write every day (I missed 2 days!!), it has given me that push needed to stop slacking and get the writing done.

The Liebster Award aims to spotlight up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers – I'm almost there!

Upon recieving this Liebster Award, there are a few rules:

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
3. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers. Here's to hoping we can all at least win this lottery!

So here are my top picks, and hard ones, since I have many favorites. These five are favorite creative souls. Their blogs share their creations, and trials and tribulations along the way. I admire their work and their perseverance, as we all are trying to sell our handmade wares. 

1. Handmade Fuzzy
2. Nicole's Vision
3. Red Rose Cakes
4. The Dragon's Breath
5. So Much Yarn, So Little Time

So stop by their blogs, and see what I mean. Support them by following them, and drop by their shop and browse! Think Holidays!


  1. Thank you so very much for giving me the Leibster award! It means so much! It has been rough writing everyday for October, but proudly I have not missed one yet! Few more days to go and I hope that I can keep with this trend!

  5. Dearest Raige, you are just the sweetest! This really moved me. It's the best reinforcement I've received in a long time. As a full-time Mom, wife and frankly, daughter to an elderly mom, it's nice to have some validation I can call all my own. Thank you, and you are a joy and great company to me in the blogging world, my home away from home...:)) I hope this gains you some followers and we both can break 200!

  6. Thanks a bunch for including The Dragon's Breath! I'm finally getting around to returning the favor - stop by and see....
