Loving Curvy Women (On Etsy)

August 5, 2008

Oy with the technical difficulties already. For almost a month now, the planets will just NOT align for me. Either the server that hosts this site is having problems, or else my computer is. If both of those are working, then I can’t access my uploader (and thus any entries I might post). Life is being incredibly frustrating for me at the moment. I am trying to have faith that someday this will all be worked out.

In the mean time, I have a link to share with you. In my attempt to fill my house with images of women of all shapes and sizes (both to save my daughter and also for my own self-esteem), I have been browsing Etsy for anything that fits the description. I hit the goldmine with Mamacita’s Shop. I asked her permission to post a link to her shop from here because I think her creations are some of the most beautiful and uplifting I have seen and they are entirely relevant to this site. She designs beads and pendants, several of which focus on curvy and curvier women figures.

I chose two for myself: the Wise Mama and The Call of the Wild. Because, apparently, I have a thing for women and trees. It was a really, really tough choice, though. So many of her pieces speak to me in one way or another. Like this New Mama piece which suits this website very well, or this gorgeous Big Mama who rocks her curves. And there are more! So go poke around her store and pass on the link to anyone you think may be interested. She was a really sweet seller and I hope you love her stuff as much as I did.

    Hey! Just wanted to offer you some encouragement and tell you that you can persevere! I know that you’ve been experiencing lots of technical glitches … but this site is so important!

    I don’t know if you’re religious at all … but I believe that you might be getting thwarted, technically, here by good old Satan. He knows that what you are doing is helping a lot of women to find a way out of the body image trap – and find freedom in acceptance of themselves. This equals true freedom and happiness – and he doesn’t want that for us. He loves it when us humans create our own mental imprisonment – that way we’re easier to keep down. Don’t let him win!

    Eventually you will overcome the technical problems and be able to get back in a good flow!

    I’ll pray for your efforts …
