Sometimes Lifes a test.

♪♫"Somewhere I heard that life is a test, I been though the worst but still I give my best. God made my mold different from the rest. Then he broke that mold so I know I’m blessed (this is my world)

I'll Stand up now and face the sun... Won’t hide my tail or turn and run. It’s time to do what must be done. Be a Queen when kingdom comes♥.

Girl you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody...I don't need no man. I'll be the one to take this stand.

I got all the answers to your questions...I’ll be the teacher you could be the lesson. I’ll be the preacher you be the confession. I’ll be the quick relief to all your stressing (this is my world) It’s a thin line between love and hate.
Is you really real? or is you really fake?
I’m a solider standing on my feet!
No surrender and I won’t retreat!
Even when I'm feelin Beat.
This is my world!"♪♫

I can officially say... When grams left my world she broke my heart </3 I've carried this thing every day since she got sick that first day and I rushed it to her... I've dropped it a million times and it never seemed hurt at all... until last night I was upset and I dropped it... and in front of Kayla Rachel Alex and Selo and more... my heart broke ... With the most intense symbolic timing.
I was speechless. .and just wanted to cry and cry ... but somehow felt it was her telling me it would be okay..... because on the Inside ...The heart is sooooo sparkly that I was almost jealous it wasn't the outside all along.... and in my head I heard her sing a little song... about how even though the Polish may wear off of the outside the Inside will always stay shining strong

Oh let's just say I had quite a night.
But silly little things though devastating in ways help me get through this fight.

Michael Phillips thank you for this amazing piece it has helped helped me with more than you may ever know. Malachite has became one of my favorite crystals and this particular piece has seen hell and back

The Light Queen of my life ...may she rest in peace.

My best friend of 23 years... the women who knew truely how to take away all my fears.
I feel like this just isn't even real life right now oh super moon how you've brought my biggest fear to light on this dreaded night.
My grams is officially gone... she finally given up on her fight.
On the 9th month at 9 p.m. on the 10th day , of 2014 she was guided to the other side on her mothers birthday... ( at least she got one heck of a present on this day)

Thank you to every single person that's been there along the way I knew she wasn't able to continue her stay. I just hated seeing her have to end it but today was just meant to be the day.

So much love for one women I never knew it where possible to be true. But I can honestly say there will never be another women quite like her. Though I keep reminding myself it's better to have loved her and lost her than to have never have had her.


My grams had a notebook she was writing in... One of the only rings she wrote me was " Shannon you are loved remember that. And now always look to god for answers."... I cried... then got on and saw this....

Oh what a day. I feel like this means leaves in general rather than turned against me. regardless I am grateful for the strength to get through .
She is forever an amazing part of me and my life.

I will be regaining my life in the next few days then restarting some of my pages for yet another new chapter to my life.
The darkest days are here then its all up from here! No time left to fear. Gotta just grab the wheel and steer!

Shantastic Ink Photography!

HI THERE FRIENDS AND FANS! Sorry for my lack of updates via this page and or the Shantastic Ink Photography page! I have been updating most of my recent photography adventures to SHINE TIME

I have been spending a lot of time on the road capturing the smiles of festy goers and thought it would be a good idea to keep such larger files of photos of an alternative scene in one place! However Shantastic Ink Photography is still going strong and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE To book some sessions before the weather starts to shift on us. Right now would be a beautiful time for some end of the summer shots at Rocky Gap , Constitution park, Dans Rock and so many more beautiful places in our local area!
I also have a studio set up that is portable if you have room and want a more studio style session. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions!

I try to do affordable photo sessions at $30 for up to 2 hours. ( This includes up to 3 people/animals) $10 CD with all the photos as well as a print release form. I can also do photo prints on your favorites rather than a forced package deal.

Help me help you, let's create a memory with a photo that can last forever. Until then take a peak at my latest adventures and like my Festy Photography page over on SHINETIME!
