The Reason For Show-Casing A Couple Prompts From Duncan This Month

All of his life, since he began to babble, Duncan has been a story-teller.  He can tell the most elaborate tales you have ever heard–although I warn you, once he starts, you just need to sit down and listen–you’re going to be there for a while.

On a daily basis, this little man will spew some of the strangest, most bizarre things I have ever heard.  So….I started to write them down.

Now, many were lost due to lack of pen and paper when they were uttered.  Many were lost due to the fact that his mama was just too darn tired to try to find something to write with.

But–I captured a bunch of these weird little things — and I typed them up.

Now available for purchase, for $5 US, eighty-four odd something or another from the mind of Duncan.

What you do with these prompts is all up to you.

Sketch–paint–write–do an interpretive dance–create a magic show–make a zine–whatever you do, wherever these take you…just have a ball doing it.

Please note–all money goes into a savings account for Duncan’s college.


A Prompt From Duncan


As seen on The Sisters In The Shadows Halloween Scarefest here.


Here is something for you to take on your own and run with in any way you desire.

Brought to you by the imitable Master Duncan Low…

(please keep in mind, he’s 5yo)


It’s a hand butt, not a butt hand.  

What’s wrong with you

Use the other one.

A Little Story For You…

So, I recently had surgery…and as part of my recovery plan, my darling husband and dedicated family are going out of their way to make sure I take some air and get some exercise, without pushing myself too hard … and this led us to take a walk in the local woods at a nearby conservation area.

This is what we saw there:


We walked by it and Evangeline said, something along the lines of, ‘ Oh, look, this is where wild underwear elastic grows.’

We chuckle a bit and wander on…until Duncan begins to have his say…which went something like this…’someone was walking along this path, just like us, and he died because a bear got him and ate him all up…and the bear threw his underwear elastic in the tree like that so it could be free and grow wild.’

At this point, I was choking so hard laughing that I nearly swallowed a bug and I had to go back and get a picture of said wild growing elastic.  It’s just plain old Hanes, by the way.  Nothing fancy.

And how do you think that underwear elastic got there?

Our Website Has Been Updated!

Ha! Ha!

I know–you’ve been waiting.

We’ve all been waiting.

The Beck Low Family website is up and running and ready to ship.  Or whatever else arises.

For the record, as of this moment, the only thing not ready to roll are my own email courses.  I am still in the process of converting the PDF format to email format…and that takes time…and I only just got all my weird flighty little ducks in a row about all the hows and the wheres and the other hows, and some more hows…so…they are coming.  Now that I have a handle on those little rascals, it should only take me a month or two to get all the courses converted and available.  As I finish one, it will be put up for sale–and I will provide notice.

So, at long last, you can buy my collaborations with my oldest son Nikolas here.  I do have a stack of backgrounds awaiting my attention…and very soon, I will move on to working on them.

Evangeline has her hand-made section, as well as her Tarot/Oracle card readings.  Please note, she does accept commission pieces  of her art.  Email her here to request a quote.

My mother, her jewelry is available.  I still need to redo the pictures, but that doesn’t take away from the power these pieces have.

There is even poetry to be had again on our site.

Duncan, our youngest, is still busy growing and learning and growing some more.  His work is still available…and we are hoping to have more of his work to show soon.  He tends to be more of a performance artist of late.

Come on by.  Look around.

And yes, I will be doing a separate post for my own offerings.  Right now, I want to make sure everyone else has all of their stuff ready to go and available for you.

Until next time…




My Son, The Story Teller

My youngest son is four years old.

His sister and I were working on things Halloween in September.  We asked him if he would like to draw something for the annual Sisters In The Shadows halloween-fest (which started today, by the way).

At the time, he was busy drawing clouds…and poop.  (Hey, we’ve finally, after two years, gotten him back ’round to the potty after his sister literally scared him away from it…so he has poop on the brain…what can I say?)

He told me he would draw us some zombie poop — zombies are a favorite of his — and pumpkin poop.

Enchanting, thought I.  Can’t wait to see the response to that.

For the record, he draws very emoji-esque poop…and I was (and am yet) wondering what exactly he might come up with to make his happy poop pictures into zombie poop–and pumpkin poop…

Later on that day, he and his sister were playing together with legos.  He had his sister build him a ‘monster’.  His set also comes with cute little animals.

A story emerged from this play…that will be revealed on the Sisters blog later this month…I wanted to make sure I had the back-story somewhere.

Originally, we had intended to use the little lego critters and the monster Evangeline had built…but when I went to look for them, they were nowhere to be found–of course.  They’re probably under the couch…you know, where the zombies live…so we had to make due with Sister drawing the necessary bits for Duncan’s post.

Come take a look on the Sister’s blog this month.  You will find horror, murder, mayhem…and some enchanting art as well…
