Sharing the kindness..........

As a subscriber and fan of the Brave Girls Club, I embraced this kindness challenge with enthusiasm. I try every day to give a compliment to a stranger and love to see their eyes light up when you get their attention to just say something positive! This is just as fun, a little more tangible and by having the kindness slips in my pocket, everytime I put my hands in my coat I'm prompted to hand one out!! Try it, it will change your life and those you come in contact with!!
Here is the link to the post! http://bravegirlsclub.com/blog/?p=1724
And I've enclosed the link to the PDF so you can print your own pockefull of kindness!
Be sure to watch the video, it is beautiful!! Thanks, Brave Girls!! http://bravegirlsclub.com/blog/?p=1681

I've got a thing for wings!!

This my mantel on the fireplace in my bedroom. Yes, I know!! Bedroom! I stripped it down to prepare for the arrival of my wings!! I've always had a thing for wings! I buy em, I design em, I find em in nature! Probably because my heart has wings!!

My latest paper creation! The heck with wreaths, I wanted Wings!!

Up close, my wings on a background of velvet! Love it!!

On being happy....................

Was wallowing around feeling so wounded after the weirdest social experience last night, licking my wounds and trying to figure out why?? When I came across this at the Fancy Farm Girl, http://www.thefancyfarmgirl.com/on-being-happy/ whose blog I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! Now I'm off to turn my day around!! Thanks to the Fancy Farm Girl!! MmmmmmmWha!


“Universally people think happiness is a stroke of luck……

Something that will descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough……

But that is not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You must fight for it, strive for it, INSIST upon it, travel the world for it.

You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.

And once you have achieved that state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it.”

~ From “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert

Not ready to put my pumpkins away!!

Halloween started with this.....spooky but a little bling! See sparkly black pumpkin!

So my SideSoul, Jilly, brought me home a slew of these from Billings!! Hobby Lobby!

And I blinged, beaded, and chained them, after I spray painted them all with metallic paint!

Close up!

Aren't they cute?

Love these!!

Family by marriage

I've got some amazing women in my life, some are in my life by choice, others by marriage. In the marriage department I've been blessed. First, being loved and taken care of, by my Saint of a husband. When I got him, a few extended family members came along, actually ALOT of extended family members! But the best, and my favorite, is my husbands sister, Janelle. She is a dedicated Mom to her kids, Aunt to mine, friend to me and all around one of my favorite people in my day to day life! We've helped and been together thru thick and thin and still call each other almost every day. My real sister took this beautiful picture of her and I just wanted to share it!!
