A New Rainy Day

Today has started

Today I have woke in a significantly better space. My sleep was a bit restless as I tossed and turned. An idea came to mind about creating a canvass and that idea kept me thinking about my own experience. Not an experience that I wanted to keep me awake, I will say that. One of being molested at the age of fourteen. I was a willing participant in the act but I can’t help but to think of how sick the 32 year old man was/is. Although I was willing how can a man for one minute believe that a fourteen year old knows what she is doing when it comes to sex and the activities that it involves. It is disturbing to say the least. Disturbing that I thought it was cool that a man of his age would want anything to do with a young teen and more disgusting that he did.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever disclosed this information but the weight of it felt extremely heavy last night and so, I decided if I hadn’t wrote about it, I would. The man is my step-uncles twin brother. Gross, right? I will not allow this to consume my thoughts today but I will tell y’all the idea I had. In the world of creative journaling, tabs are a big deal. Tabs? You ask. The tabs that stick out to make it easier to find a specific section, rather the tabs I reference are for decoration purposes.

These tabs can be made of sturdy cardstock, cardboard, fabric, anything you can staple to the side of the paper to make it easier to access a specific page. Well, for one reason or another, I thought it would a neat idea to have those who have been molested, willing or not, make a tab that represents the act they wish to forget. The tabs would be mailed to me and I will staple them to a thin canvass, creating a piece of art that collectively has been created from victims across the globe. Once the canvass is full, it could be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds to victims of molestation. Let me know what you think of this idea. I will provide photos of what I mean when I say a tab, below.

This isn’t to distract from me as much as it is to get out of pity. Let me know what you think of the idea. If it so happens you experienced such acts more than once, make tabs for each occasion. The tabs do not have to be pretty. They can be torn, wrinkled, ink-stained, whatever your idea is, I support. If there is an interest, we can do this together. I’m sure I could scan an outline of a tab for those who would prefer there to be a guide. If you wanted to write your abusers initials on the tab, do so. My hope is that this will help with letting the act(s) go.

**Post update: I will purchase a post office box soon and will publish a post with the address for those interested. This can be an anonymous participation. I will not attach any personal information to the piece of canvass related to the tabs.

Sad but True: R.O.E. News

Updated 4.5.2019 – Thank you, Ashley, for your donation of $10 and for helping me figure it out. This problem has been solved ❤

Due to recent events, I am saddened to say that I cannot afford to pay the up-coming annual fee that allows me to operate Revenge of Eve.

Revenge of Eve

The annual fee of $97.00 is due no later than April 25th.


Because of a recent backslide in my mental health, I was forced to take a week off from work. There are no paid days off for those of us who work as service workers in the restaurant industry. On top of that, the hourly rate at which we are paid – $2.13, doesn’t compensate for any lost time acquired. Basically, I sell my personality in order to provide an income for my daughter and myself. When I am experiencing a mental episode I am unable to pretend that it does not exist. The timing in which this episode occurred couldn’t have come at a worse time; site renewal month.

As it stands, I owe $300.00 for March’s bills which I aim to pay, plus late fees, this week along with my car insurance and storage unit bills. This totals $575.00, not including late fees.

My living situation will also change in the upcoming two months. My daughter and I will get a small space of our own. April has always been the hardest month of the year for myself mentally for various reasons. I was hoping to change that this year but so far, yes only one day in, it isn’t looking so good. But I will say this… I am grateful to have a job, a roof over my head for the time being, and the ability to stay connected using my newsletter.


If you find it possible to donate, all donations will go to keep this site afloat.

Revenge of Eve

Keep R.O.E. Alive

All donations will go to the operations of the site, Revenge of Eve.

$5.00

If you wish to donate more than $5, you can do so by opting to purchase multiples by changing the number in the box allocated. This will be done in $5 increments ( number in box: 4=$20 example).

Paper packs will be available in two sizes and will include vintage papers, vintage ads, designer paper, cardstock and embellishments. No two packs will be the same. Want a custom theme pack? Chat with me to see if I have what you want!

Finding the silver lining in this situation, I will not lose the domain because it was purchased later than the plan. Please keep an eye out for postings that will offer paper product packages that can be used in your journals for creating beautiful pages or for use in your art journal projects. Because I currently do not have a store for such sales, purchasing a paper package will require you to send me your mailing address via email once payment is processed.

Shipping costs will be calculated into the price of each paper pack except for international shipping. Dependent on international shipping fees, it may not be worth it for you the consumer. Waiting until I have the store up and running may be your best bet for purchasing my products. Also, the prices reflected here are not necessarily the prices of my products in the future. Custom package prices differ.

I will do everything possible to keep things going here on Revenge of Eve. Blogging has been my saving grace and I fear that if it goes, so will I.

I Am Not Satisfied with the Lack of Suggestions (repost)

Time is running out!!!


Yo, Yo, Yo…

Quick Question. I know that I will donate a set percentage of my sales to a charity every month. Then I got to thinking that it would be better for me to reach out to ya’ll and ya’ll could give me your preference and help spread the word. There may be smaller, more personal to you charities that you would love to see a monthly donation go to and I would love to do so!!!

Here’s what needs to go down

The charity must benefit the mental health community.

The organizer of the charity cannot make any money off of the charity for personal gain or for employment (they cannot receive a check from the charity funds).

The charity can provide funding, assistance, therapy, education, or entertainment for those with mental illness, ie group gatherings/movie meetups, no matter the foundation reason, if the mental health community is involved in a positive manner, I will consider the charity.


Pretty simple qualifications if you ask me.

So here’s whatcha do next….

Share!! Share this post on the platforms you interact on so hopefully someone you know can mention a charity close to their heart.

Next, drop your favorite charity in the comments and tell why you choose them with a brief description of their mission.

If you share on platforms outside of WordPress, make sure to have a link to this post or my website so I can receive their suggestions. This is not a ploy to gain more followers. I am 100% please with the amount of followers I have and I wouldn’t be upset if I never gained another. What this is, however, is a way to share the love among the community I was welcomed into just for being myself.

I am also thinking about speaking with whomever, within the charity, about displaying a link on my site where donations can be accepted anytime.

I haven’t yet determined the percentage but I will share that in theGarden, a bi-monthly newsletter, once I have made the decision. I will also be sharing some exciting news very soon so if you do not want to miss out, subscribe 🙂 (now that…that’s a shameless ploy to get you to subscribe – teehee)

How will I decide?

After narrowing it down by process of elimination, if a charity does not meet the qualifications, (I will do my research) then the remainder will be tossed into a hat and I will let my daughter draw the winner!!

I can’t wait to read everyone’s suggestion. In fact, the first donation will be made in your name! How about that? I will set a date to draw. Let’s say March 20th, the first day of spring. Sound good? I will donate to the winning charity for one year, each month, 12 donations. But I have to research the ones suggested, which will take some time depending on the number of suggestions… so I will not accept comments after 12:00 midnight on March 17th, St.Patrick’s day (central U.S. time).

I will contact the commenter who entered winning charity when the first donation is made.
