It Truly Is A Wonderful World

When was the last time you stopped to think about what a wonderful world it is that we are so blessed to live in?  It seems like so much energy is spent these days by people telling us all the negative things about our world.  What if for just a minute we turned off all the outside noise and just spend some time ourselves looking at everything that is so […]

Yes, My Dear, Dreams Really Do Come True!

Either you believe that dreams can come true or you don’t.  If you don’t, there is nothing I can say that can change that and I’m not even going to try.   It took me a really long time to figure out dreams.  I knew that I had plenty of them and more than that, I knew that I wanted them NOW!  I can’t tell you how many times I felt […]

Has Life Got You Feeling Overwhelmed?

We all have those moments, (or even days) when we are feeling overwhelmed.  We all have so many things going on in our lives and there seems to be so much coming at us.  Some days it feels like the entire Universe has all the sudden slipped into some strange, unannounced and unpredicted warp speed.  We have schedules that seem impossible.  People that are intolerable, and you feel like if […]

Do You Let Procrastination Rule Over You?

I remember when I first wanted to really start my art career, it seemed liked I was struggling with procrastination almost every day.  Now that I have my art career going, it seems like I am struggling with procrastination almost every day.  You would think that this would get easier, but for me, it hasn’t. Actually, that is a good thing!  I have learned that through my times of procrastination, […]

Prove Them Wrong

  For many of us it all started at a very early age… people telling us what we should do with our lives.  Most of us have had a dream of doing something only to have someone come along and step all over it telling us all the reasons it won’t work.  While at the same time telling us what we should be doing instead.  This drives me crazy!  I […]

Choose People Who Choose You

Generally, we all have people in our lives that we may not choose. For example, there is that precious co-worker that drives crazy on a daily basis. Or perhaps it is that family member that you can’t help but wonder how the two of you ended up in the same family. Those are not the people that I am talking about. The people that I am talking about are the […]

What Are You Waiting For?

It seems like everyone is waiting for something. It may be a new job or taking that dream vacation. We seem to find ways to procrastinate by using excuses like, “the time isn’t right” or “I’m waiting for the right opportunity”? Why do we do that? When we do, we end up just waiting our lives away. What are we waiting for? Why don’t we go out and create that […]

Just Give It A Try

How many times have you wanted to do something and immediately your mind starts to create a lengthy and sometimes elaborate list of all the reason why you shouldn’t or can’t do it?  We have all been there more times than we can count.  I can’t help but wonder why we do this.  Are we just beating others to the punch and telling ourselves all the reasons why we shouldn’t […]

Spend Time Feeding Your Soul

We all know how to feed out bodies, (a little too well for some of us). Yet, how much do time do you spend feeding your soul? We spend countless hours feeding and primping our bodies as if our body is what defines us as a person, it doesn’t! What defines us as a person is our soul! Do you feed your soul more than your body? Do you feed […]

Christmas Candy Canes and Vines

    I know we just finished Halloween and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving yet, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking about Christmas yet! For me, being a lover of the color red, when I think of Christmas, candy canes always pop into my head right away. This year I have created a new Christmas design called Christmas Candy Canes and Vines. My usually color pallet is a […]
