Hi, my name is Jellybean Reds. I’ve been creating my world for a while now, and it has come to my attention that, perhaps, I should explain the methodology I use to craft this site.
The first thi..
History. If you don’t learn from it, you’re doomed to repeat it.
My father and I were standing on the roof of his theater. It was not the one in Cratersville. This was his other home. The one tha..
I designed these images with my BFF Blueberry in mind. I’m not quite sure he appreciated the sentiment.
You see I’m the one who’s totally caught up in the Magic while Blueberry tolerates its exis..
Stories are powerful things.
Stories can inspire us. They expose us to different points of view. The best stories touch our hearts and transform our souls.
Stories, despite the pleasure they p..
We all have a magic inside us, one that is truly ours. This is our superpower, our change-the-world talent.
Many times, we don’t recognize our own magic because we’re too busy trying to imitate t..
My room is bathed in a supernatural glow. It is the night of the full moon. To celebrate I have conjured a moonlit scene outside my window.
Living in a theatrical Realm where everything is conjur..
In a world where there are few things you can believe in, you have to learn to believe in yourself.
You have to learn what makes you tick, what makes you get up in the morning, what makes you hap..
It’s a gorgeous spring day in the Gypsy Grove and I’m flipping through the pages of my Creation Book. Being Magical in nature, my Creation Book had an infinite number of pages that will continue to ..
In my Realm there’s Magic and then there’s magic. The first Magic is what my Realm is based on and created with. It is the coin of power. It is a token by which people gain status. This Magic is tig..
Another month has come and gone, where’s the summer going!
Of course, here in the Creators Realm I don’t experience summer the same way that I did in Cratersville, or as I do when I’m staying in ..
Whatever you do in life:
Do it with spirit
Do it with spunk
Do it to ignite someone else’s soul
Glow like the moon
Shine like the sun
Excite like a supernova
Show the awesomeness of..
Living your dreams is a lot like taking a trip to the distant stars. The journey will be longer than you anticipated. Harder than you expected. More amazing than you could imagine. And the excitemen..
Hello July and Happy Birthday to all you July Babies! The great thing about July birthdays is that you don’t have a lot of other holidays (except for Fireworks and Apple Pie Day) to steal the limeli..
I’ll admit it. I’m known as an eccentric Creator. You can say I inherited my proclivity for the peculiar from my grandfather (I’ll write about him later).
Of course, my grandmother isn’t exactly ..
You’ve probably noticed by now that I love to create butterflies.
I could say that butterflies just fascinate me—they do—but they also represent something more.
Butterflies not only represent ..
I’ve written about the Magic before, but since it is the reason why the Creators Realm and the Icon Worlds exist, I thought I would add a few more thoughts for you to play with.
I say thoughts i..
At first, when my sister, Poppy, and I discovered the Magic that allowed us to create little creatures, we weren’t really sure what we had gotten ourselves into or, for that matter, what exactly the..
Never doubt the Magic is for you
Never doubt the Magic is within reach
It’s as near as the dream in your heart
It’s as close as the hope in your soul
The Magic may not be knowable
You may be wondering what’s up with presenting my images in the vast variety of colors that I do. Color has always fascinated me. I like how different colors evoke different moods and highlight diff..
I still remember the day when a hungry caterpillar inched its way across the top of my Creation Book.
My sister Poppy and I were sitting in the shade along the banks of a lazy flowing stream. Thi..
Happiness is like an elusive butterfly. It is dreamt about, pursued, but rarely captured. Perhaps this is because, too often, people think of happiness as a possession—a thing to own. They think if ..
Don’t sing someone else’s song
or the one
you learned growing up
or the one
you memorized in school
Discover the song
that makes your soul dance
Make it your anthem and..
Celebrations and me have an awkward relationship. Thanksgiving, Winter Wish, Shamrock Day, I can get into. Mostly because the centerpiece of said celebration isn’t me.
But, birthdays are another ..
I love birds; they remind me of my sister Poppy. The Gypsy Grove where we spent our early childhood exploring all things natural and magical, was populated with an abundance of birds.
Sand was everywhere. It was in our shoes. It piled up around the chair legs. It formed dunes on the tabletop between the wine glasses and ceremonial dishes.
It was the Night of the Feast of Freed..
I’ve mentioned my mom several times so far, but I’ve really never written much about her and what she was really like.
Both of my parents were a bit of a mystery to me as I was growing up. I didn..
