The Story Behind The Name

So...Good Buck Gone Drag is not the ideal name for my business.
After painting my deer skull, adding pearls and finishing it off with some lashes, it seemed my deer skull was getting some grief for lookin' too girly.
I felt a little sorry for him.
In the middle of the night, I would love to say that God struck me with a lightning bolt (He does work in mysterious ways) but I won't pin it on Him...anyway, I shot out of bed, half scaring my husband out of his wits and shouted, "I know what his name is!!" I would have liked a bit more enthusiasm when he mumbled, "What?" but that didn't let any air out of my bubble when I (again shouted) "Good Buck Gone Drag!!"
It was not meant in the derogatory meaning of the word although I know very well what it refers to :)
It really is just meant as:
My mom and I have decided that we are redefining the word GONE DRAG!
We as women are so many things, we are mothers, grandmothers, teachers and hard workers, but most importantly, we add beauty to the world!
So, my goal is to no longer go about my business attempting to add beauty to whatever comes along...Now I'm going to purpose to add beauty to my husband's world. Whatever that might be and hopefully leave little traces of that "attempted" (I say that because I know I am not God's gift to the world...I am just attempting!) beauty along the way.
It is not just about putting lashes on skulls, it is about his family coming up along side him and no longer requiring him to be a part of us and our world, we are going to enter his and add as much beauty as humanly possible!
He has worked for 13 years, sacrificing for his family so that I don't have to work and so that I am able to stay home and provide my children with the most custom schooling one can give...at home!
Now, I hope and pray that I might have a little something to offer back in order to ease his burden a bit and hopefully add a little "beauty" to his world. The best part is that I can do it with the things he worked and sacrificed so hard for still intact...home, children and family.
