Who am I?

I wanted to start this blogging adventure by saying hello. I'm new to this, in so far as I've never done one of these on my own before. I thought perhaps any readers who might pop in would appreciate knowing why I named my blog Under Scarlet Bird's Wing".

There are a few reasons. First, I am in love with the color red, and more specifically, a particular moniker for that famed color, Scarlet! In fact, here are a few of the things I own that bear this wonderful color. (note, these are just a few, I didn't want you to be bored with ALL of them)

Red lipstick from MAC is a must have. I think I have 5 or 6 different MAC shades. Oooooh, and a lovely red eyeshadow too!

Here is the red portion of my antique books. Love this!

Secondly, I am a child of the King and He says that He will keep me protected underneath His wing. I like that image. The picture of a mother hen caring for her chicks, cuddling them and keeping them from danger.

Third, I am a major fan of the beautiful bird known as the Cardinal, or Red Bird. Since Red can be known as Scarlet, I've taken a bit of license. If I were a Lilliputian, I'd hang out underneath my very own Scarlet Bird's wing.

Finally, I believe that anyone ought to be able to see beauty and inspiration from such a wonderful place as peeking out from beneath this amazing feathered friends lovely wings. Don't you?

And since Red is a favorite, the very first scrapbooking collection I designed for Scrap Girls was RedWork Quilt, which you can see here: Redwork Quilt Collection Biggie
Here's one of the layouts I created with that kit.
I hope to share pieces of my life that are real, accessible, hopefully inspired and just plain fun. Let me know what you think so far!
