Happy New Year 2011!


In just a couple of hours 2010 will come to a close and a new opportunity will be granted to us all. 2010 has been fantastic and I am grateful for everyday, everyone, every experience and emotion that it brought me. It has been 365 days of happiness, love, joy, bliss, sadness, loss, grief and resignation and I am grateful that I was able to understand that everything was as it should have been, nothing more, nothing less.

I am excited for 2011! It will be a fantastic year full of excitement and beautiful surprises along the way. What will you do with 364 days to fill with exciting adventures? I have learned to take each day as a present, for tomorrow is an illusion. I know that I shall fill these days with hard work, creativity, love, joy, inspiration, learning, drawing, painting, sewing, writing, photographing, designing, baking, jumping on the bed, smiling at strangers and honoring myself.



I have an optimistic beat in my heart that this year is the year, MY year. The year that will define me and the course of my life. I am grateful for having such a blessed life and an opportunity to use all of my skills to begin making a difference in the world. Recently, I have been writing action verbs that describe my DREAM job, so far I have: Helping, Action, Service and Giving. I think these will be my four words for 2011!



What are your WORDS for 2011? What are you inspired to do this NEW YEAR? Whatever it is, do not be afraid, do not let fear paralyze you, do not let doubt or other people's opinions stand in the way of your dreams! My wish and action word for all of you would be: DO! Do what you love, do what you've always dreamed of, it is NEVER too late. Life is yours for the taking, so GO and Make 2011 the Best Year of your life!!



Wishing you a Happy New Year where you Shine as Bright as the North Star!!! Love, Peace, Joy, Abundance, Prosperity, Good Fortune, Bliss and Creativity be yours this year!

XOXO,

16 days till Christmas..and I am Grateful


Wow! Can you believe it? Only 16 days until Christmas and soon after that it will be New Year's. 
This year has zoomed by leaving both good and not-so-great presents in it's path.  I am grateful for all of you, who have made this year a magical one for me. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever fathom of being an "artist", of having this type of creative outlet and be able to sell my work.  Your support means the world to me.  I have much to continue learning, there is much more room to grow and find my way, to create my own voice. All this would not be possible if it wasn't for the amazing global handmade community and sites like Etsy.com, who inspire me with their craftiness, enthusiasm, DIY-spirit and beautiful artisan crafted goods made from the heart.  



Shine Bright Wherever You May Be, In This Big and Beautiful World!
