Okay, @cedarforksarah, the first #imthegreatestmommoment that came to mind was when my oldest daughter, who was a huge Lord of the Rings (and especially Elijah Wood) fan, wanted to attend the LOTR Convention held in Pasadena, CA, located a few hours from our home. The clincher was she wanted us to go dressed as hobbits. 😂 What's a mom to do? I worked fast and furious to sew three hobbit outfits for us. We fit right in with the other thousands of geeked out, dressed up LOTR fans at the convention. The topper was my girls got to meet Elijah Wood in person. Now my girls are 28 and 22, but I'm sure they'll always recall the fun we had. #goodtimes#makingmemories#lotr#frodolives#elijahwood#hobbitcostume
Current Summer Reading List.
... yeah that got out of hand.
*Note not in reading order. Gonna finish Jake Tapper's book - then probably the Clinton book - and then just batten down the hatches and finally read LOTR. Which I am very excited to do. #frodolives
You can do absolutely anything with the right amount of love, intention and grace. I asked the deck to give me guidance on a wound that is taking a long time to heal. Just like Frodo's shoulder, it may never heal. It certainly took me out of Middle Earth alignment, sending me into ring bearer status with Elven boat rights to boot. 🌊
Wounds like this gift us with a Knowing that is practically inexplicable. We become driven to explore things, and we can't quite explain why we're being guided toward certain things. When the wound was at its most raw, I turned to Divination. And then I turned to making art with my hands. Years into my knifing at Weathertop, I dove even deeper into artistic expression and jewelry making. I am no expert, but I have a heart and I have something to say. ⚒
I cannot express how deeply honored I am to announce that I've been granted one of six grants to be an Artist Resident at @artleagueli for one year beginning this June. 😍
When I drew the Seven of Pentacles I nearly screamed. 🔮
How perfect to receive the message that my bleeding has birthed bounty.
My goal is to stretch myself even further by combining my love of writing, healing, and artistic expression to bleed even deeper and share all I can with you. .
I created this honker of a ring, and I pray she doesn't cringe, because of one of my favorite jewelry designers @soliloquyjewelry. Kerin, your brilliant soul expressions guided me to emulate your art. My God, you inspire me. 🕯
Thank you all for walking with me. May your blessed wounds bleed all the abundance in the world so we may all delight and prosper in your ĿĪƓĤŦ 🔥
So much love, Diane 💕

“Frodo Lives” being graffitied throughout the nyc subway system back in the day was basically a viral meme of the time.
That shit was fucking cool.
The Lord of the Rings was cool.
Harry Potter can choke on a fucking wand. 🤷🏼♀️
The final item in the #artifacts#lootcrate is really something else. It seems the magicians of Weta Workshop have decided to jump into the vinyl figure pool. It seems they've been around since '17, but this is the first I've seen of them. They have a look that's reminiscent of the New Line trilogy and if you really look, there's a touch of Ralph Bakshi's 1978 animated adaptation. This Frodo was based on a digital sculpture by artist Mauro Santini who also works on film props. What's really nice is that this is a @lootcrate exclusive figure; Frodo's sword Sting is painted blue to indicate Orcs are about. One more post before we move on to the #lootcratedx box. #unboxing#weta#wetaworkshop#miniepics#lotr#lordoftherings#frodo#frodobaggins#frodolives#maurosantini
Boulder trolls were closing in on us from all sides. As they came into earshot we heard the distinct sound of smoke being blown up one’s ass. Not being able to stand the horrid stench that comes along with this act, we quickly retreated to safer grounds • #frodolives#dontletthishappentoyou#stayintheshire
Ok, listen up you fucks. I'm gonna settle this shit. Frodo would have survived being stabbed by the cave troll in Lord of the Rings, and here's why:
The cave troll stabbed him with a trident, not a spear. And as you can see, Frodo is impaled with one of the side prongs. The main center prong goes between Frodo's arm and his torso and the main force of the trolls attack is pressed into the wall behind him.
So enough with all of this "The force of the troll's blow would have killed him anyway." bullshit. Peter Jackson paid close attention to detail in these god damn movies.
Nerd rant ended😤😤😤
Excelente charla sobre la obra de Tolkien en el #virla ✨de la mano del maestro Gaby Wolf, del @ered_i_kalain , el #smial de Tucumán. Un debate genial de preguntas y respuestas muy aclarador de dudas. El mes que viene volveremos a visitar y a aprender!
Long story short -- I did a Frodo Baggins burlesque number, conceived and executed in short order in honor of @clintcosmonaut's birthday. What's a girl to do when she needs hairy hobbit feet? Mascara smudged sloppily may or may not be the answer.
Also, if you missed the number you missed an ADVENTURE.

When I began making metalstamped jewelry, I did it for the l̤̈ö̤v̤̈ë̤ ö̤f̤̈ c̤̈r̤̈ë̤ä̤ẗ̤ï̤n̤̈g̤̈ without excessive thought on whether I would be successful or not. I knew I wasn't the best metal stamper in the world but I had SᎾMƐŦĤĪИƓ ŦᎾ SΛY ✍️️ My desire to create and combine words with my wire wrapped crystals and stones is what drove me to manifest. I was so happy to see that this resonated with folks and my online shop turned into 10 live vending shows last year through @urbansirenllc 🔺 My newsletter yesterday quoted Joseph Campbell: FᎾĿĿᎾᏯ YᎾƱŔ ßĿĪSS 🌅 Do that and no matter the outcome, you will love the journey. I wasn't expecting to retire on the funds raised from my jewelry making or "kill it" monetarily, but the reward of sharing my heartfelt creations brought so much abundance that I am still called to create and share.
🔺Tag someone who you admire for following their bliss, and I am tagging several bliss-blazers and wishing you all so much joy on the journey. Thank you for being here 🌎
