Hello there, Mermaid Junkie!
I believe everything happens the way it is supposed to and that’s why I believe you swam to my underwater world for a reason. I’ve had this blog since 2003 and it’s seen numerous incarnations in that time. I have to say that I’m so joyful for where I am now. I began this simple blog as an outlet for DIY creative projects, and after soul searching for a number of years, I realized my purpose, and where my heart belongs. I’m pleased to now spend my life fulfilling my truest intentioned desires and dreams.
Since childhood, I have always considered myself an artist and author. From the time I was a wee-one I have always sketched, written stories and painted while sitting contented in my handmade fort above the trees. The place that I always felt like a fortress in.
I have been transforming my purpose driven life, and I finally feel comfy in my own scales.
I am an Artist living in a little coastal cottage called “Staffordshire” with my soul mate/twin flame (aka Beloved Gardener) along with our cottage bunny named Oliver Twistytop.
My dream is to live in a cottage-like fairytale Victorian mansion in California, with chickens, bunnies, and babes below my feet. While my BG tends and harvests our gardens, I will be sitting among the shorelines of Carmel-By-The-Sea writing and illustrating children’s stories.
I create customized paintings, taxidermied ocean life pieces, essential oil healing blends, and personalized treasure chest tools to inspire ones transformational tale (journey) through the Law of Attraction. (specifically Abraham-Hicks teachings)
After spending decades of disregarding my bestowed gifts and childhood dreams I feel I have now “come home.”
I am significantly inspired by Tasha Tudor and Beatrix Potter, and discreetly embody their way of living through emulation by living a very antiquated lifestyle.
I am also in the process of writing and illustrating a children’s book series. Three of which will be released Spring of 2018.
Among my early transformation as a way to inspire along my journey I created a Youtube channel called (MermaidJunkieTV), and this blog where I write, create, paint, design, DIY and share all sorts of Treasure Trove Tips inspiring other kindred souls to realign with their inner being, to create a life they love, and to always follow their heart based on the Law of Attraction and Universal Laws.
I’m so pleased you swam to my waters.
I hope you’ll swim around a bit, use your compass and navigate to find out more about me and my underwater world!
Yours affably, Raquel
