March Artist Trading Cards- Fairytale Theme

     These are my Artist Trading Cards that I sent in for March! The theme was Fairytales and I 'm not against them as these messages imply. I simply remember growing up wearing a towel on my head pretending to have really long hair, imagining my prince and the magical life that I would live. It was not until much later that I realized it makes much more sense to be in charge of my own future. We need only to become our own fairy godmother!

     If you want to make your own magic and live the life that you dream, you need to ask yourself "what do I really want in life?" Write it down. Describe it. What does it feel like to have this life? Most of us are so busy that we never take the time to really get clear on this. You can't ask for what you don't know. You need to put it out there. Ask and you shall receive!

   I'd love to hear what it is you are asking for! I'll be sharing mine later on this month.

Mission Possible

   My mission is to be a spiritual Teacher/Artist, making colorful art and sharing ways with others to help heal the world. I want my legacy to be that I inspired others to see the good in the world even though it seems hard to find. I hope to empower others to use their personal gifts and talents in order impact positive change.

     I am calling you out. What are your special talents? How can you share them with others? Give the gift of yourself this month. Don't worry about judgement. It's okay to be silly or embarrassed. It can be big or small. You have a unique super talent to share. Maybe you bake cookies, or help someone learn to read, or you garden, the list can get really long! Think of one thing that you can do and go do it!

Something I Am Passionate About!

    I am passionate about color! I love seeing it and using it in all of its shades and forms. I can be paint, markers, glazes, or yarn. It doesn't matter. Color is awesome! I especially love the way color is used in Nature. Animals and plant life speak to me in ways that are amazing. I remember as a little girl learning about angels. I have always said that if I can become an angel I want the job of designing animals-especially fish, and plants. I look at a tropical fish and wonder. How do the scales know when to change colors? How do the hairs on a cat know its time to show stripes? I hope to always be aware of the many beautiful parts that make up things.
 This week I hope that you will set your intention to notice the small little things that surround you. Look at their beauty and really soak it all in. I guess this means we can't watch the news channels this week! Let us enjoy Nature instead.

Intention and the Ripple Effect

     I believe in the power of intention and the ripple effect. I decided to do the 100 random acts of spirit at Christmas and the results were amazing! People flocked in to participate with me through Facebook and in person. It seems like everywhere I went someone shared ways that they could serve. It felt wonderful to be a part of something larger than myself!
   I believe each of us is given special gifts to use while we are here on Earth. Our life's purpose is to figure out the best way to use those gifts or talents to improve the world. It doesn't have to be big. It can be a simple as giving a smile to someone who is having a bad day. They receive the smile, feel better, and then maybe they pass it on to someone else. We all pay it forward! We get to choose whether we send out a good or bad payment. I believe in sending as many good ones as I can!

Thank you to all of you that joined with me!
