The Queen of Everything....or Maybe The Empress

I recently saw this on Tammy's blog and you all know how I love these quiz thingies!! Plus they sure help out when I don't have much to write about!! This one is fun....

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

I tease HB that I'm the Queen of Everything but I guess now I'll have to change it to I'm The Empress!! He probably won't buy that either!

My collages for Collage Play With Crowabout were getting way behind so yesterday I finished two of them. The one for Week 4 was very late but I did it anyway. Here it is....

And here is the one I did for Week 5....

These are so much fun. I've never been good at working with a theme but this isn't exactly a theme....just images that you can do whatever you want with. I just wish I could figure out what will write on my pages after I paint them. Nothing works for me....I've tried Sharpies, several different kinds of gel pens, Micron pens, and even paint pens but nothing will write without clogging and skipping. It's maddening because I know everyone else writes on their pages! What don't I know???
