UPDATE as of NOV 2022: I had attempted to update this shop page to use WooCommerce to make the shopping experience easier for you all lovely people, but I found out part way through that I didn’t have time to fully redo this page in WooCommerce before the holiday sales. I had hoped to add a sort by category feature to allow for easier browsing, but just didnt have time. I will be adding that feature, as well as the ability to add things to a cart that will do calculations, etc, instead of buying items individually through paypal, and revamping this page and my whole website in the coming months, but for now, please bear with me as you scroll through my list of available items. I understand it is a long list, but please see the Table of Contents below for reference, and in the spirit of #FatPositivity and #BodyPositivity, there’s just more to love! Enjoy my bounty!

Note 1: Due to me being such a small business, some of the items listed below will only be available in small batches at first, but I am very happy to fulfill your orders and make your arts, decorating, and correspondence dreams come true, but just note if I get many orders at once, it may be a couple weeks before you get your order, as I am only one person, and have limited stock of some items, so may need to restock some things! If you are on a time crunch, be sure to email me at astro.greenlady@gmail.com before you purchase so I can let you know if I can fulfill your order right away or if it will take me extra time. I am a VERY small microbusiness, just starting out, and operating as a person with multiple disabilities, so please bear with me as I try to make your holidays brighter! #BuyLocal #ShopLocal #SmallBusiness #BuyVermont #VermontByVermonters

Note 2: Contact me at astro.greenlady@gmail.com for discounts on bulk purchases of more than 3 cards at a time, and for shipping fees, photo purchases, mug purchases and purchases of any items that currently say “low stock” or “limited availability”.

Note 3: Some of these product photos are reflecting the light or photographed in low light, and so are not showing their true vibrance. It is very difficult to get photos of photo products without the proper (expensive) equipment. Some cards and other products are much more vibrant, bold, and sharp in real life.

Stickers

“I DO Believe in Fairies!” 2.5 inch Holographic Sticker

holofairystickersshot-1

Holographic Fairy Sticker 2.5 inch

To note! I have just ordered more of these stickers, as I am currently down to my last two! HOWEVER, the printer is located locally right here in Vermont, so it should be less than 2 weeks from Thanksgiving when I get them in stock and ready to ship! Also to note, the only differences in the new design is that instead of dots, there are three small stars on either side of the sticker, and the font is slightly different, but still fantasy oriented, and also slightly easier to read! Round, 2.5 inch round Holographic Light Fairy Sticker with “I DO Believe in Fairies!” printed in an arc across the top and bottom. The holographic nature of this sticker give it a rainbow effect when moved in sunlight.

“Matilda’s Roses” Accordion Card

Side 2 of Matilda’s Roses Greeting Card

Accordion Card: “Matilda’s Roses”

A Semigloss, 8 sided accordion card, with one unprinted side for writing on, and accompanied by a free coordinating white envelope. I took these photos of David Austen roses in my mother’s rose garden in South Royalton, Vermont. Roses were the Progressive Suffragette Leader Matilda Joslyn Gage’s favorite flower. The following poem I wrote in honor of Matilda’s monumental work for Women’s Rights, and the rights of all those oppressed, and in the hopes of getting the word out about all she has done in the name of justice and freedom for all. Her work has been hidden for too long! $1 from every sale of this card will be donated to the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation. Matilda’s Roses Poem featured on Card Written by Ashley Anne Strobridge The Rose is bright and lovely, and so is truth when treated right, but do not treat her roughly Or the thorns of justice will smite, The hand that tries to bind us, And take away our rights! Matilda was a rose of truth, A beacon for us all, And her many daughters carry on, Always answering the call! We bloom into righteous women, Speaking up in marble halls, Gathering our sisters, Helping each other when we fall. The fight is not yet over, For justice for one and all, For Women, Indigenous, Black, Brown, and Asian, And for creatures big and small, And to keep religion out of politics, We must not drop the ball! Beautiful in her strength, Glorious, like a blooming rose. She glowed with righteous justice, The golden road of equity she chose. She was the inspiration for Dorothy, A feminist trailblazer child, Oz was birthed through her dreams for equity, And so a better world Baum styled, Based on friendship, kindness, and equality, A place for all to live as one, But it was Matilda who gave this fantasy breath, And through her fire the fight begun. Through speeches, books, and papers, She fought for equity and rights for all. But she died before seeing justice, Though votes for women were installed, Not everyone won freedom, Though slowly, walls did fall. Matilda’s story is rarely told, She was an early white ally, She stood for EVERYONE oppressed, On this hill of justice she would die. She was Abolitionist, Suffragette, And “She Who Holds Up the Sky,” She was an early vegetarian, and “Separation of Church and State!” was her cry. We must never forget her, And her stalwart belief in rights, For EVERYONE oppressed, Not just for privileged and whites. We must go to her home on the Underground Railroad, And place our “I voted!” stickers, On Matilda Joslyn Gage’s gravestone! For it was SHE, not Anthony, who had the rigor, To work so hard for one and all, To receive justice, rights, and equity, Whether Black, White, or Indigenous, She understood the intersections and complexity. We must never forget Matilda, And how Roses were her flower, They are beautiful in their justice, But are sharp if you forget their power.

“Ode to Joy and Freedom for Ukraine” Accordion Card

Side 1 of Accordion Greeting Card “Ode to Joy and Freedom for Ukraine”
Side 2 of Accordion Greeting Card “Ode to Joy and Freedom for Ukraine” (back, for your own message)

Accordion Card: “Ode to Joy and Freedom for Ukraine”

A Semigloss, 8 sided accordion card, with 4 unprinted sides for writing on, and accompanied by a free coordinating white envelope. The flowers featured in this card are sunflowers, from seeds planted by birds that I fed in the winter and spring, and that I grew in pots in my “Garden in the Sky,” on my balcony, in Downtown Montpelier, Vermont, summer of 2021. The following year, 2022, these sunflowers would grow to symbolize the enduring strength of the Ukrainian people, as they continue to fight for their land and sovereignty against Russia. I wrote this poem, inspired both by the Ukrainian people, and by my very favorite piece of music, which symbolizes finding joy evening in the darkest of times, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” which is the song of Europe, and was performed for and by the people of Ukraine at the beginning of this horrific struggle that never should have been. $1 from every sale of this card will be donated to World Central Kitchen for the Ukrainian People. The poem featured on this card is printed below. Ode To Joy and Freedom for Ukraine Poem featured on above card Written by Ashley Anne Strobridge You will survive, and thrive like the honey bee survives winter to thrive in Spring and summer, Buzzing among the golden petals of your native sunflowers, You cultivated so diligently. The sunflower nectar you have harvested these past years will be your strength, Bringing you Righteous Joy and Freedom everlasting. We are by your side, the world is watching, Seeing the injustice you endure, we are on your side, And those of us who can, will fight for you, for we are fighting for us all, Together we will sting like bees at the greedy hand that comes to steal the fruits of your labor, Fighting the northern storms that reign down on you like fire. We know you must not fall, and we are behind you, Like the booming drums of Beethoven’s masterpiece, we drum for you, And our voices will rise together in a chorus of nations, Celebrating Truth and Justice! And we will celebrate the Joys of Triumph together! A tingle of righteous and joyful life races up our spine, and our voices rise again in the cry of FREUNDE! You are our FREUNDE and we will support you! In Joy and Grief, And we know you will meet Joy again, in your Place of Paradise which you have cultivated: Elysium! Ukraine LIVES! We will defend you, our Freunde! You have strength in your friends and strength in your sting, You WILL survive, To sow your sunflowers, and harvest your nectar to thrive in the sunny petals once again. This is our Ode to you, Ukraine! Our Freunde! Our Ode to you for Joy and Freedom!

“Nature Is the Answer/Fairy Rings of Truth” Accordion Card

Accordion Card: “Nature Is the Answer/Fairy Rings of Truth”

A Semigloss, 8 sided accordion card, with one unprinted side for writing on, and accompanied by a free coordinating white envelope. Pictured on the card are some of my most magical photos, accompanied by my original poem, with themes of fantasy, ecology, and Nature preservation. Below is a copy of that poem. Dryad Skirts of Ivy, and Fairy Rings of Truth The trees will guide you through the wood, as long as your heart has youth. The young at heart can see them, The Fairy Lights so dear, They sing the songs of Nature, if you listen, can you Hear? They tell us not to tread so harshly, With big black heavy boots, Not to cut down the friendly Dryads, Not to tear up their connected roots. Connected to all the community, Bringing life and love and care, Sequestering carbon dioxide, If we kill them, we won’t have air! They filter our storm water, And give us shade in summer & spring, They beautify our neighborhoods, If we destroy them, what will we bring? If we keep on with our destruction, Will the end of Earth be in store? No, but WE will die, And so will many more. So the Dryads and Light Fairies, Usher the wise into the woods, To walk nimbly among them, listening to all that’s good. They tell us not to harm them For they hold the secret of life, And to spread the word about them, For the true of heart will play the fife, And lead the world to knowledge, Bringing truth to light, It is in Nature we find the answer, It is in Nature that there is right.

She helps young trees, aids elders and the injured, sharing resources and communicating through the mycorrhizal fungi that embrace and support her roots, creating community and ecosystems, echoing the universal connections. As she grows, she says goodbye to old friends, outlives brothers and sisters, sees bright new generations sprout up around her wisened, greying frame. She is home to the feathered and furry forest dwellers. She is ancient but Mighty. She has stories to tell. Listen.” The above poem and photo are featured in my art and poetry book, available for sale at the bottom of this page.

My original poetry inspired by this photo is featured below. “Autumn Death” The golden glow of life gone by, She waits, reclined, and seems to sigh, Pondering thoughts we have not seen, She is witness eternal, as Nature rends gold from green. Sprouting from death, decay will bring life, New generations will form, whether in love or strife. Spring will come, but here now we rest, As darkness falls, we heave our breast, Letting worries fall away with each new breath, We fall into slumber, the sweet peace of Autumn death.

The World Is on Fire

“The World Is on Fire, but Mother Moon Watches Over Us” Glossy Greeting Card, Blank Inside

A 4 x 5.5 inch glossy greeting card that is blank inside. I took this photo in the Fall of 2020 in Worcester, Vermont. The fires in the west had blown their smoky air over New England’s Mountains and it seemed to symbolize the haze we all were in from the Covid Virus, so I was inspired by this photo to write a poem, which is included on the back of this card. The poem reads: “The flames first raged in January, and we mourned for the Aboriginal Community, and koalas and trees and Australians, ignorant to the coming tsunamis that would soon envelope our shores, but not put out the flames. In our Summer, the West burned and smouldered, and the Easterly winds brought the darkness and haze upon us as we wept. But yet… But yet the brilliant blaze of autumn colors, of life fading, of some only sleeping, finding strength in rest, brought us hope for a new day, new seasons to come of joy and wellness, and of togetherness. Mother moon smiles upon us, knowing what dreams may come.” I also have cards with the poem written on the inside, available upon request.

Book: “Astrobridge Artistry: Compositions of Truth and Nature”

Printed on high quality, photo grade paper, with a premium linen cover, my book is now available pre-publishing! All of the above pages are in the book, as well as several additional poems and photos, up to 45 pages of poetry, prose, and Nature photos, with additional brand new, premium content available for a few dollars more! The price is high as of now because I have not published the book yet, and am just getting them printed individually, so it costs me about $75 just to get one made, and that’s if I can catch it on sale. But I hope to find a publisher soon, or self publish, and then the price will be reduced, but for now, this the price for my art and poetry book. Updated versions of this book, with even more than 45 pages of poetry and photography, are available for the premium price of $100.
