What powerful three little words... 'In Spite Of'. I even looked up the definition so I could truly understand the magnitude of this phrase. Here is what I found:
"'in spite of' is used for referring to a fact that makes something else surprising. For example, "In spite of feeling tired, we decided to go out."
These words are quite a motivator too (as this example shows) -
"Spite will make a woman do more than love" ~ Marguerite De Navarre
Or my favorite expression for 'in spite of' is:
"Courage is not the absence of Fear, but the ability to act in spite of fear!"
By now you are probably asking why am I defining the words "in spite of"? It is because this is where my inspiration for my little Spite came from.
First let me explain the difference between a Sprite and a Spite. A Sprite is born from the first laughter of a new-born baby... that first burst of love, joy and wonderment of the world. (click if you like to hear a laugh *smiling*).
But a Spite is born from the left-over magic of a wish. That thought which happens when the 'what ifs' enter the mind. That small second of thought when the magic is halted from fully going into the wish because of a moment of doubt. So instead of granting the complete power of the desire that goes into a wish, the 'what if' is attached. In other words - an 'in spite of' (aka Spite) is born and you never know where the wish might go. The Spite helps the wish further along (with their sense of humor always added), to give it an expected twist.
And so, with these thoughts/wishes rolling around in my head... my little Spite is being created.
Welcome to my blog. This is where I will reveal the magic of my Fae and their stories and share with you some of the success and pitfalls through the journey of doll making, sculpting, and other crafts that all come back to my dolls in many ways.
