Well, it's the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013. Again, I want to thank my friends and acquaintances and fans for all of the great attention I've garnered this past year.

I still cannot believe I've gotten more than 100,000 views ... I originally just started writing and drawing to satisfy my warped little needs and express a side of myself that sometimes is just busting to get out.

I hope your 2012 was kind to you and that 2013 is amazing. Best wishes to all and to all a good night! :heart:


Daphnesecretgarden's Profile Picture
Sometimes known as David
United States
I was raised by my stepmother throughout most of elementary school and junior high school. She wasn’t a bad person, but like most of us, she had her problems. The most glaring of which, I am sad to say, was a serious jealousy of the father/son relationship I had with my father.

I was a typical boy, I suppose . . . I enjoyed fishing and racing my bike and I dreamed of being a soldier or an astronaut. My stepmother’s way of handling this situation was to bring me into her world, make boyish things distasteful to me and instead make me do 'special' things with her, things that no boy would do with his father’s knowledge, much less his approval.

In short, whenever my father was out of town I spent a great deal of my time learning the mysteries of lipstick, nylons and heels, not to mention household chores, dolls and books about girls. It was rough giving up my GI Joe for Barbie and 'Spider-Man' for Nancy Drew. I wasn’t too crazy about any of that at first, but it made my stepmother happy and kept peace in our home. And so, I just shrugged my shoulders, sighed … and learned to enjoy my predicament.

Anyway, whenever my dad was away, I spent many a Saturday and Sunday wearing girlish clothes, playing the role of 'Daphne', my stepmother’s favorite daughter. Instead of shooting my pellet gun and reading comic books, I would sit with her and watch romantic musicals or help with her knitting or sewing or some other sissy such thing. Sometimes she would 'let' me play on my own, which meant I had to pretend to enjoy playing with my Barbie and carrying a purse around the house.

That was what I had to face whenever my father left me in the hands of my mischievous and conniving stepmother.

Talk about feeling helpless. :please::tears::please:

As much as I hated some of the things I had to do back then, I now treasure the legacy I was given. I have to say that if given the choice ... I wouldn’t change a thing.

hello Dapne I'm a big fan off your art and I was wondering if you will get back to your online life soon. If there is anything wrong in your life I pray that it will be set right once more.

Lots of love and kisses

Hey I heard you used to have a set of pics called "Roger and the Bullies" But I've not been able to find them on the net. Could you tell me where I might see them?

Will you be updating tending my secret garden on tumbler, I think it is great but don't see any updates since last December (or am I looking at the wrong link?) tendingmysecretgarden.tumblr.c… All the Best, Tammy
Daphnesecretgarden Featured By Owner May 18, 2014
I don't have an answer to that.  I'm pretty sure I will get back into Tumblr.  I just had to take a break.  There's soooo much stuff there, to include a lot that I need to avoid.  (!!!!!)  Plus, I had a bit of a downturn in "The Real World" and took a sabbatical from my online life.

Thank you for the kind words.  :heart:  I do so love the tumblr archive that I created ... so much girly, sissy things to enjoy!  You no doubt share my appreciation for femmy, girly things.  ;):heart:;)  I posted some of my own work, but mostly it's a great place to post things that might otherwise go unnoticed.  It's a great community with a lot of interesting people.

Thanks so much for responding, of course I definitely share your appreciation for girly things. I hope the sabbatical has helped you, do what you need to do and if you are ever able to post more to tumblr that will be great as you are a great archivist of all things feminine. All the Best to you, Tammy
