12" Deer Budget Drum

With Custom Drumstick

Hi Bob,


    My package arrived today!  Thank you so  much!  I love it, I’ve been holding & hugging my drum, it sings & vibrates! I love the mallet too, the vibrant colors of the yarn against the dark, rich, deep color of the bark, I think a cherry tree branch.  Thank you for the smudge herbs, the emerald chips & Lightening Wood on copper, I will let my drum get acclimated & then weave it into it when it’s ready.

    I have smudged, caressed, & spoke with my drum, welcoming it into my home & life,  I told it we are going to have a wondrous adventure together in this life.  We will play, dance, & pray together in honor of God, & life, sending love out into the circle. We will heal & heal others as each friend reaches out in need for someone to pray for them.    

  I then lightly played it & wow it is a beautiful, magnificent & living creation. It has its own voice & vibration.  I whispered & asked if it was ready to meet a few members of my family.  I introduced my drum to my animals, my dog Mia, my two cats Buddy & Gypsy.  I played it gently for them to hear, Mia greatly appreciates it, she was resting on the bed while I gently played it, she was listening with perked ears to each sound & when I stopped,  she reached out her paw for me to play more, then she started to drift to sleep.  Both my boy cats Buddy & Gypsy were already snoozing & each only slightly opened a lazy eye in acknowledgement.  


I introduced my drum to my mom, she’s so thrilled over it, that she wants one of her own.  I’m thinking I will give her time to study & listen to the different drums & then get her one of her choosing for an early birthday present. Today  mom explored your website & likes the sound 10 inch deer at the moment, I’ll give her time to contemplate which one she connects with best.  I will introduce my drum to my dad once it has gotten more comfortable in its new surroundings.  He’s more down to earth, he appreciates & accepts my own spiritual nature & my mom’s too. Naturally he’s good a grounding agent. 

 I will also introduce my drum to my teenage nephews when it’s ready to meet them.  Ryan 15, Jason 12, they will appreciate it & will like learning about it.  


    Thank you & God Bless you.
